One paragraph that explains Life

Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS .
From world over, he received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed:
"Why does GOD have to select you for such a bad disease"?
To this Arthur Ashe replied: The world over -- 5 crore children start playing tennis, 50 lakh learn to playtennis, 5 lakh learn professional tennis, 50,000 cometo the circuit, 5000 reach the grand slam, 50 reachWimbeldon, 4 to semi final, 2 to the finals, When Iwas holding a cup I never asked GOD "Why me?". And today in pain I should not be asking GOD "Why me?" Happiness keeps u Sweet, Trials keep u Strong, Sorrow keeps u Human, Failure Keeps u Humble, Success keeps u Glowing, But only God Keeps u Going.....

Slam the book!

End of grade 10,12,UG,PG...mmm farewell party reminds you of something??...all folks out here have one exercise which is to be done to make fellow folks happy.That's filling the enteries In the Sham err Slam Book.With my UG coming to an end in sometime this exercise is to be done by me aswell.Wheww!Iam not against this coz may be even i have to get one for myself too.
Whenever i fill in enteries in my friend's slam books,which I do due to great perseverance on their part,I really break my head over questions that i can never find answers to.I know the whole thing is basically supposed to be a fun exercise,but I always end up mulling over the questions and trying desperately to put my pen on paper wondering why this torture is inflicted upon close and loved ones.I attimes goof up things trying to be "creative" or rather landing up filling weird answers. huh?.With great difficulty i chuck out of my mind with beautiful and intelligent answers like "keep your nose out","cut your smile","mind your business"{right under their nose verbally!!:P} and many more of the kind for the fear of sounding rude and stop myself from filling in blanks that ask for address with "home" so as not to sound cliched and silly!giving a "tongue-in-cheek" reply.

No end to it
And don't ask me what unholy thoughts pass through my mind when
i am asked to fill in favourite food/dress/drink/actor/actress/shoes/plant/tree/
fruit/vegetables/perfumes/restuarant/date details and what have you...! Brain scratching for me :D
At once a flash of kindergarten learning comes to mind recollecting of
vegetables and fruits :P
Talk about favouritism!the end is listlenessness.Oops!I mean the list is endless!Get my point?Hey don't think iam being snobbish.Look at it realistically,aren't slam books actually meant for keeping track of friends,getting to know how they feel about you and in what aspects do they like to see you as an improved person?
Don't you think it will be more fun to have your friend writing about you and qualities which they like/dislike in you,which they admire or detest?Not only will you enjoy reading it,your friends will also find it great fun! At the end of it all,you'll know what you will have to do to make yourself a a better person and a great friend.After all,friendship standness for frankness,fun and frolic.Doesn't it?If iam asked the question whether i would get one for myself,:-/..pssst may be i will be knowing their "whereabouts"/contact or E-mail ID's.Otherwise nothing else.Personally I would ask them to tell me the quality which they admire or abhor in me.
After a hiatus abck to Blogging!.This post just struck me with farewell party gonna be hosted by our juniors in a month or two.Shall try coming up with a good idea once iam bombarded with filling in many slam books.Oops iam not a celebrity you see ;)
Slam that book!It's a sham.
P.S.:The weirdest stuff i ever posted.Sounds wacky.Tried my hand at a non-serious stuff for the first time an urge for an inclination towards wit and comedy,turned out to be very bad rather than hilarious.Hope the Emoticons doesnt irk anyone :). Please do comment...hahah waiting!!!!!

Inspiring story :)

One day I decided to quit...I quit my job, my relationship, my Spirituality... I wanted to quit my life.I went to the woods to have one last talk with God. "God", I said. "Can you give me one good reason not to quit?" His answer surprised me..."Look around", He said. "Do you see the fern and the bamboo?"
"Yes", I replied."When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care of them. I gave them light. I gave them water. The fern quickly grew from the earth. Its brilliant green covered the floor. Yet nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo. In the second year the Fern grew more vibrant and plentiful. And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo." He said."In year three there was still nothing from the bamboo seed. But I would not quit. In year four, again, there was nothing from the bamboo seed. I would not quit." He said."Then in the fifth year a tiny sprout emerged from the earth. Compared to the fern it was seemingly small and insignificant...But just 6 months later the bamboo rose to over 100 feet tall.

"It had spent the five years growing roots. Those roots made it strong and gave it what it needed to survive". I would not give any of my creations a challenge it could not handle." He said to me."Did you know, my child, that all this time you have been struggling, you have actually been growing roots?""I would not quit on the bamboo. I will never quit on you.""Don't compare yourself to others." He said. "The bamboo had a different purpose than the fern. Yet they both make the forest beautiful.""Your time will come", God said to me. "You will rise high""How high should I rise?" I asked."How high will the bamboo rise?" He asked in return."As high as it can?" I questioned"Yes." He said, "Give me glory by rising as high as you can."I left the forest and bring back this story. I hope these words can help you see that God will never give up on you.He will never give up on you!

"Failures are more finely etched in our minds than triumphs and success is an elusive,
if not mythic goal in our society" .
Remember there are some defeats that are more triumphant than victories and the ultimate measure of a man not where he stands in moments of comfort and convinience,but where he stands at times of challenges and controveries.If one is falling off a cliff they have nothing to lose,but have atleast reached it. Success does come after umpteen hurdles and the pinnacle of failure implies arrival of success Think of yourself as an incadescent power illuminated and perhaps talked to by God and his messengers .
