    I will never understand Mob fury

    Around mid-July Mumbai and Maharashtra faced severe riots when a major political party went on the rampage over the desecration of a statue. This time several Dalit organizations went on a rampage against the vandalism of Dalit leader B R Ambedkar’s statue in Kanpur. (Report by IBNLive) This is even stranger than the first incident because Kanpur isn’t even in Maharashtra! I condemn any such vandalism but I really don’t understand what these mobs gained by going on the rampage. As far as I can see it we have three dead persons and crores of rupees lost (read burnt) due to these riots. The mobs have inconvenienced hundreds, if not…

    Fun makers turn bloggers?

    I don’t know if I have to wonder or laugh at many people in college who thought that writing a blog was stupid. Many of these characters even used to spam the blog, without even realizing that every time they post a comment, they can be tracked! And today as I look I see a lot of these so called persons turning to blogspot to write tiny little journals, making their entry into the blogging world. So has blogging got them hooked? What do they think about others blogging? I have always been way ahead of the pack, having started blogging two and a half years back. I doubt anyone…

    Everything I need to know about Life…

    Everything I need to know about Life, I learned from Noah’s Ark Don’t miss the boat Remember that we are all in the same boat Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark Stay fit. When you are 600yrs old, someone may ask you to do something really big! Don’t listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done Build your future on high ground For safety’s sake, travel in pairs Speed isn’t always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs When you’re stressed, float a while Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals. No matter…

    36 Christian Ways to Reduce Stress

    An Angel says, “Never borrow from the future. If you worry about what may happen tomorrow and it doesn’t happen, you have worried in vain. Even if it does happen, you have to worry twice.” 1. Pray 2. Go to bed on time. 3. Get up on time so you can start the day unrushed. 4. Say No to projects that won’t fit into your time schedule, or that will compromise your mental health. 5. Delegate tasks to capable others. 6. Simplify and unclutter your life. 7. Less is more. (Although one is often not enough, two are often too many.) 8. Allow extra time to do things and to…

    He gave his heart to His valentine

    My Valentine He gave his heart to His valentine “He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds”. (Psalm 147:3) Levlyn was a very proud youth. He loved his heart and cherished over its goodness. Once Jesus appeared to Levlyn and asked him, “Levlyn will you give your heart to me?” Levlyn very coolly replied, “I don’t want to give my heart to anyone”. His friends visited him and asked, “Levlyn will you give a place to us in your heart. He said, “Sorry, I can not give any place to anyone in my heart”. Then his teacher came. He asked Levlyn, “Will you give your heart to the music…

    Looking back on 2005

    With 2005 just completed, as usual I sit down and evaluate how the past year was for me. Began 2005 on a rather bad note with the sad demise of U. Colin. 2nd of Jan marked a really important day of my life when I met up with Madam C and on 4th of Jan I attended my first prayer meeting at Mt. Carmel’s. The rest of Jan was rather uneventful. So was Feb except for me being appointed as Admin @ CFH and the Prayer Group Picnic. Early April I hit the WordPress scene with my first WordPress Hack. On the religious front, April saw a new Pope and…

    Think Positive, Feel Positive, Live Positive

    I have always believed in this and many a times preached this. And as usual at times I tend to stop practicing what I preach. Have been telling my pals lately that my work life and personal life always work in antithesis. If my work is good my personal life is a mess and vice versa. I have been rather irritated lately over trifles. And at such times I have noticed that in rather unseen ways I am told to take a chill pill! Yesterday on my way home in one of my boss’ car, he brought up the topic on Positive Thinking and how it really helps. In a…

    So what are you doing this Christmas?

    There’s 15 days for Christmas and I am sure while many have already decided what they will do, there may be many others who are still deciding! I’ve fallen perfectly into the latter. Have quite a few options, though I just am not sure which option to follow. For the past four years I have been spending Christmas and New Year with my choir. It has usually be low key affairs with private parties held at someone’s house. I never had a date nor did I know how to dance hence the rule-out of popular places like Willingdon or Bandra Gym. Times have changed and now I do know how…

    Is work a curse?

    Came home really frustrated from work today. Not frustrated with what I do but with how much I am supposed to do. I don’t think I can call it frustration. I guess it is just plain exhaustion. Anyway, I’m blabbering… As I reached home my eyes fell upon Words of Hope Daily Reflections booklet for April, May and June 2005. Simply flicked it open and read this for April 4 The reflection is the passage from Genesis 3:17-19. This really has lightened my spirits. I’m still tensed however as Genesis 3:19 says, By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since…
