Entire world is moving towards a mechanical life, having little or no time to realize or sweetness in life, in love.. There are people who truly are different from the majority and do the best they can. This is dedicated to them and for the rest, I hope that we all realize the importance of not allocating time for love, life when all other things are done. I hope, we all prioritize and understand for what we are running!
But above all, when we expect someone to understand us, we should first start by trying to understand others..
Here it is:
LOVE IS PRICELESS
A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell. He painted
a sign advertising the 4 pups and set about nailing it to a post on the
edge of his yard.
As he was driving the last nail into the post, he felt
a tug on his overalls. He looked down into the eyes of a little boy. "Mister,"
he said, "I want to buy one of your puppies."
"Well," said the farmer, as he rubbed the sweat of the
back of his neck, these puppies come from fine parents and cost a good
deal of money."
The boy dropped his head for a moment. Then reaching
deep into his pocket, he pulled out a handful of change and held it up to the
farmer. "I've got thirty-nine cents. Is that enough to take a look?"
"Sure," said the farmer. And with that he let out a whistle. "Here! Dolly!" he called.
Out from the doghouse and down the ramp ran Dolly followed by four little balls of fur.
The little boy pressed his face against the chain link fence. His eyes danced with delight.
As the dogs made their way to the fence, the little boy noticed something else stirring
inside the doghouse. Slowly another little ball appeared, this one
noticeably smaller , Down the ramp it slid. Then in a somewhat awkward
manner, the little pup began hobbling toward the others,doing its best to
catch up..! ..
"I want that one," the little boy said, pointing to the runt. The
farmer knelt down at the boy's side and said, "Son, you don't
want that puppy. He will never be able to run and play with you like these
other dogs would."
With that the little boy stepped back from the fence,
reached down and began rolling up one leg of his trousers. In doing so
he revealed a steel brace running down both sides of his leg attaching
itself to a specially made shoe. Looking back up at the farmer, he sai d, "You
see sir, I don't run too well myself, and he will need someone who
understands." With tears in his eyes, the farmer reached down and picked up the
little pup. Holding it carefully he handed it to the little boy -
" How much?" asked the little boy.
"No charge," answered the farmer, "There's no charge
The world is full of people who need someone who

It is common saying among humans about a violent human that the person is behaving like an animal! I want people to think if it is fair to give such a comparison.
I do not want to write much about it. I am just gonna post some articles here which should make the point!
Another prominent example.. http://www.mypointis.net/thesealhunt.html
I think I am guilty too. Raise the green house effect on a day to day basis. Destroy polar bears. So seal population raises. Then kill them mercilessly to control their population. But do nothing about ones own mistakes. I feel guilty. At least the leopard had the heart and courage to understand the outcome of its doing and take care of the offspring.
Please tell me, are the definitions for animal-like and human-like correct?
I think animals do not deserve the shame of comparisons to such a selfish human kind.
I love animals. I am not saying all humans are bad towards animals. But there are many many heartless hunters, insensitive, and mean people towards animals &/or people who support animals, and very many who do not even care for other humans as well.
I am angry, am sad.. I hope people who do love take some initiative or at least support others who had the courage to take initiatives!

The Pretty Lady
Once upon a time a big monk and a little monk were traveling together. They came to the bank of a river and found the bridge was damaged. They had to wade across the river. There was a pretty lady who was stuck at the damaged bridge and couldn't cross the river. The big monk offered to carry her across the river on his back. The lady accepted. The little monk was shocked by the move of the big monk. "How can big brother carry a lady when we are supposed to avoid all intimacy with females?" thought the little monk. But he kept quiet. The big monk carried the lady across the river and the small monk followed unhappily. When they crossed the river, the big monk let the lady down and they parted ways with her.
All along the way for several miles, the little monk was very unhappy with the act of the big monk. He was making up all kinds of accusations about big monk in his own head. This got him madder and madder. But he still kept quiet. And the big monk had no indication to explain his situation. Finally, at a rest point many hours later, the little monk could not stand it any further; he burst out angrily at the big monk. "How can you claim yourself a devout monk, when you seize the first opportunity to touch a female, especially when she is very pretty? All your teachings to me make you a big hypocrite.
The big monk looked surprised and said, "I had put down the pretty lady at the river bank many hours ago, how come you are still carrying her along?"
Moral : This very old Chinese Zen story reflects the thinking of many people today. We encounter many unpleasant things in our life, they irritate us and they make us angry. Sometimes, they cause us a lot of hurt, sometimes they cause us to be bitter or jealous. But like the little monk, we are not willing to let them go away. We keep on carrying the baggage with us. We let them keep on coming back to hurt us, make us angry, make us bitter and cause us a lot of agony. Why? Simply because we are not willing to put it down or let go of the baggage.
So, does all such moments leave us without an impact? No. Thats not possibly possible. I am just trying to say that one must learn from it. Analyse what will help in saving us from being in the exact same situation again. Work for it. But just don't let it hurt you more than it should. After all, everyone has their own painful moments of embarrassment, sorrow, deceit and more.

This is my very first blog. I was thinking for so long on what could be my first topic. Should I start with the day or some random thoughts or what else?
Then I decided: It must be about my life so far. What do I think about it.. So that anyone who cares to read my blog will know my perspective better!! And I myself can evaluate my opinions later on!! I think its a great idea!!
Many years have passed. Some years are just too meaningful and others are plain. Does that mean that those years were wasted?
But then, I did not post this blog or complete it!! I reopened it now, on August 6, 2009 and read it. I myself am wondering that in what mood was I to write such a serious blog! This has really got me into thinking.
My perspective has changed much since then!! I can not imagine that I actually thought people would care to understand my perspective of life! If they do care, then may be they will know it by now !!
Anyways.. still I do not know what exactly I am doing by blogging!! So what I am exactly trying to find is, Am I the kind that blogs? :)
