The Play-Ground of Life


What cricket! What baseball! and what super ball!
We all are moving around in the ball which named as Earth ball,
White,Black or brown, all are heading towards a same town,
Do you think it’s worth to be a player of this ground?…


Nothing much to say and nothing much to pray,
I am just witnessing, and as being a part I have to play,
Truth has been gone and lie has been worn,
Nothing much that I can do, as I am player but not the umpire..


I am glimpsing from far, seeing a boat with plenty of stars,
Shadow had been passed as sun of ray are coming to ask,
weather has been changed and god is returning from mars,
Oh! dear never disappoint, I wish you go far!far!far!…


Your dream will be truth and happiness will all over you,
If you never forget, you are only you,
Costume will be gone and you will be alone,
So Be nice, Be wise and love truth to find who you are….

Can One Penny Can Make a Difference? Sure it can!


There was a time a time when you can buy a candy or send out mail with penny. Penny was part of more or less In the financial transactions. Today the importance of penny has been disappearing due to inflation and cost rising even though penny is currency, it’s treated like a, there is no value for it. Last week I had found a few pennies thrown in the middle of the road and that leads me to think about what you can do with a penny.

If you are a person who don’t care much about, think twice because I was also not, before I found this pennies on the road. Remember when one penny expands, it becomes two and soon 100,  which means one dollar. It might take you weeks to make that dollar but imagine the people in Africa who don’t have meal for once a day or orphan kid who don’t have money to buy Christmas gifts. Next time before you throw penny think about your dream to help someone or any kind of charitable because one penny can really make a difference to anybody’s life.

Those few pennies became almost hundreds and I was able to buy a bird food for one dollar. Those few pennies really made an impact on few bird’s life and became an example. This example only message that, you don’t need to be a millionaire to do charity even your one penny can make a difference; so value penny and if you find anywhere, pay it forward because you never know the power of your actions. It can surely become the reason of somebody’s smile or delivering satisfaction of any kind instead of insulting money and throwing .

They had created Mourya empire by demolishing Nanda empire at that time. According to one legendary story Chanakya used to add small dose of poison in food of king Chandragupta Maurya to keep his immune system poisoned attempted to save from enemies. Unaware Chandragupta once fed some food to his queen, Durdhar who was seven days away from delivery. The queen was not able to immune this poison and died in few minutes.

His education and background was unparalleled and incomparable to any other, so hopefully this few advises will serve you to make you better person or able to face challenges in your life

Few best advises to keep from this Great Historical Adviser “Chanakya”

  • Before you start some work, always ask yourself three questions – Why am I doing it, What the results might be and Will I be successful. Only when you think deeply and find satisfactory answers to these questions, go ahead.
  • Never make friends with people who are above or below you in status. Such friendships will never give you any happiness.
  • The biggest guru-mantra is: never share your secrets with anybody. It will destroy you.
  • Treat your kid like a darling for the first five years. For the next five years, scold them. By the time they turn sixteen, treat them like a friend. Your grown up children are your best friends.
  • As soon as the fear approaches near, attack and destroy it.
  • The one excellent thing that can be learned from a lion is that whatever a man intends doing should be done by him with a whole-hearten and strenuous effort.
  • Men have hunger, sleep, fear and carnal intercourse in common with the lower animals. It is only knowledge that a man has more than they. Those men who have not it may be regarded as beasts.
  • As water collected in a tank gets pure by filtration, so accumulated wealth is preserved by being employed in charity.
  • The life, action, wealth, learning and death of a person are determined by God when he is in the womb.
  • It is better to have only one son endowed with good qualities than a hundred devoid of them. For the moon though one, dispels the darkness, which the stars, though numerous, do not.
  • “Learn from the mistakes of others… you can’t live long enough to make them all yourselves!!”
  • You can earn money after losing it, you can make new friends, and also you can get another wife, but this is not the case with body.
  • Test a servant while in the discharge of his duty, a relative in difficulty, a friend in adversity, and a wife in misfortune.
  • A person should not be too honest. Straight trees are cut first and honest people are screwed first.
  • A man is born alone and dies alone; and he experiences the good and bad consequences of his karma alone; and he goes alone to hell or the supreme abode.
  • A good wife is one who serves her husband in the morning like a mother does, loves him in the day like a sister does and pleases him like a prostitute in the night.
  • As a single withered tree, if set aflame, causes a whole forest to burn, so does a rascal son destroy a whole family.

Why Should You Plan a Risk?


 The new sunshine always gives you a new chance to think, implement and give An opportunity to take one step further upon our dream. There are millions of people who get new ideas and thought to do something but it makes me wonder that why only few reach to their destiny. I would like to point out that, as I am also part of that millions. I believe that creating a risk plan will help us to eliminate future accidents and unplanned events. The chances of a dream come true will be more comparable to who did not plan risk.

 (1)Why should you prepare a risk plan and who need one?

A. There is nice saying which explain the meaning of risk, “Don’t Wait Till You is Thirsty to Dig a Well”. The risk meaning, Foreseen or unseen, desirable and undesirable potential loss from any action. Probabilities of damages, injury, accidents, liabilities, leases are unpredicted and mostly unplanned. Some argue with insurance and some safety plan but those are not as helpful As pre analyzes risk. I decided to share this information because I have seen that, we all are planning every day for something and most are not including risks. Today’s economy and modern world everything is uncertain so most important and wise advice will be to plan a risk. Risk planning will not only makes you feel secure but also gives piece of mind to about your future plan. Your statement will change from, I hope – I wish to I will, and that is best achievement toward whatever you have planned, so start analyzing and change your all plans from today. Every human action has risk but few has a high and few has low risks so we all need to plan risk and no exceptions from it whether you are a businessman, employee, Housewife, student or anybody else.

(2)How to Plan One?

A. You do not need to be an expert to plan your risks unless you are planning for big business or Investing big amounts of money. There is plenty of templates available online which can fulfill.Your plan requirement and risk analysis, if you can not find matching one, just customize one from available.

Example 1: Imagine you cook first time and invited guest but food doesn’t taste good or Overcooked.

In this scenario you won’t find a big deal but still you will run to find options; for ordering  food or take guest to restaurants. You will also need to plan for quick money availability and your timing as well as transportation and many other possibilities so if you have planned risk by guessing few or more of possibilities, you wouldn’t have to go thought that all.

Example 2: If you have planned risk management in your business or project that you are Working, then here are a few areas where you must have thought, such as follows;

A.What could happen? How likely it happened? How bad it will happen? What is? The project and opinions of others in it? What is analyzing and monitoring Strategies? So answer those questions and also follow the available template in the market to identify all the risks in your plan.

Little Story About Puffed Rice (Just for Smile)


Today evening we all friends were playing cards and had a delightful snack with nice tea. The story began when my eyesight went on that chair where two pieces of puffed rice where sited. I had really started to think about life cycle of that puffed rice and decided to bring among us. There are plenty of people who will write about different things and creatures but nobody will appreciate these little guys so I decided to execute this funny story between us.

Puffed rice born in factory and steamed at high pressure so, there life start with struggle and hard working. In today’s world different procedures has been developed but, mainly this is how “Mamara Maker” process these puffed rice from rice. The Mamara Makers are call creators of this mamara. The rice has been used to prepare several snacks. In India, there is famous snack call “Vagarela Mamara”, where they fry rice under very low temperature with little oil and all spices. After we had a snacks of “Vagarela Mamara”, these two mamara flied to chair. They were sitting on that chair like two lovers are gossiping about their best moments.

As soon as I noticed them, everybody else also noticed. After so much difficult time throughout their birth (Making process) they were all together with their friends to consume in pounds of quantities, in a beautiful plastic packs. Some pieces get broken and loose air control and some goes to people foot. They are cheap and weightless so they move and drop quickly compare to other snacks. Their life is always in critical situation even before they consumed by humans. When my friends brought her home, she fried them and served between us. Now some of them already lost their breath in our stomach and two of these little guys were survival.

They were mistakenly come across to our eyes now. Soon, they are going to throw in home garbage then public garbage and then will be destroyed, without any of their fault. What can I say more about these guys? I hope these guys didn’t have any of their fault, they were just victims. In future, I hope producer will give a better life to these guys. At conclusion I really appreciate mamara to become healthy, less calories snacks for us without any of their personal intention. Wishing long life to all mamaras.

I would like to adapt the chart from references which indicate Vitamins, Minerals and what food sources can provide those. It is also advisable to remember that the food sources are not as nutrient as they used to because of highly use of fertilizer and chemical to  increase production and killing bacteria. This is the main reason of high demands of vitamins and nutrients supplies. I was really surprise when I saw the growth in businesses of vitamins and minerals in such short period.

There are two types of vitamins; Water soluble and Fat soluble.Fat soluble vitamins stay in fat tissues and liver and utilize when body needed it. Vitamin A, D, E, and K are fat soluble. Water soluble vitamins don’t get stored in stored in body they travel through blood stream and not needed comes out during urination. This type of vitamins needed quicker since no storage facility. It includes Vitamin C, B1, B2, B6, B12, biotin and pantothenic acid.

How much and how many vitamins and minerals you need every day?

These sentences remind me traditional saying “Everything is poison or nothing is poison, it depends on dose”. Imagine, taking one spoon of salt compare to 10 spoon of salt every day and you will realize that how much amount of dose is important. The recommendation dose of each vitamins can highly depends on gender, age and also physical condition (Pregnant women, Construction work might require more intake then less physical work job employee). The best way to find exact dose will be consulting with your doctor. Balance diet and everyday proper intake can really help you to makes you healthy.

Few tips and recommendations before you choose your vitamins and minerals.

  • Today’s vitamins and minerals supplements includes more than just vitamins such as herbals, amino acids and enzymes etc, so don’t self-diagnose, seek advice from your health care provider.
  • Research in this area has been rise so rapidly and ongoing so there is no 100% or complete resources which you can completely rely on. I mean to say that aware of false labels and guaranteed cure statements.
  • Seek advice from experts can really make your purchase worth buying and importantly working for you.

Note:This advises are opinions only. Please seek doctor advise before ingest any vitamins or minerals.

Why Arrange Marriage is a Good Idea?

Shinto_married_couple (1)


Where in the world, you would marry to someone who you know for few hours or few days. You married to person who is completely unknown and all of sudden you deciding to spend your life. If that is the case, you must be ready to call me crazy or already started to looking weird way for this article, but i kindly impulse you to not give up until you read the whole article.

  1. Arranged marriage involves matchmaker such as priest or religious leader, matrimonial site, mutual friends or a trusted third party. Which means arrange marriage has more people to decide your life together. In arrange marriage people also try to find common area for both such as reputation in society, education, family background etc. Example: In Indian culture Both family inquire about each other very deeply and older gives their opinions about their wedding, so you involve more people with experiences so it is less likely you end up divorce.
  2. Both family involves so when something doesn’t go right there are always family to mentor you and guide you.
  3. Around 45% of couples in the United States and Canada find themselves part of divorce rates while averagely divorce rate in arrange marriage is around 8%~(This value was averaged from few articles and can be varied).
  4. There will be few mysteries, curiosity, excitements and secrets on your way because you don’t know much about your partner so you start knowing each other and game will become interesting.
  5. In today societies, guy and girl get enough time to discuss about their like-dislikes and have a right to say NO, if they don’t think they are good couple. This act also give liberty to find right soul mate.
  6. In few traditional families; people seek dowry from bride’s family, not equality in men and women, right of work for women and other issues still arise but those issues has been improved in past decades.
  7. Arrange marriage is popular in India, Africa, the Middle East ,east Asia and few other Asian countries.
  8. Statistics says it all. Read the table below and find the UNICEF, Human Rights Council, ABC News sources information. 1% Divorce rate, 90% arrange marriage in India was really saying more than anything.
  9. Please note that early or forced marriage is not same as arrange marriage.
