What Life is all About..Must Read for All

A Long time ago, there was an Emperor who told his horseman that if he could ride on his horse and cover as much land area as he likes, then the Emperor would give him the area of land he has covered.

Sure enough, the horseman quickly jumped onto his horse and rode as fast as possible to cover as much land area as he could. He kept on riding and riding, whipping the horse to go as fast as possible.

When he was hungry,thirsty or tired, he did not stop because he wanted to cover as much area as possible. Came to a point when he had covered a substantial area and he was exhausted and was dying. Then he asked himself, "Why did I pushed myself so hard to cover so much land area? Now I am dying and I only need a very small area to bury myself."

The above story is similar with the journey of our Life. We push very hard everyday to make more money, to gain power and recognition. We neglect our health, time with our family and to appreciate the surrounding beauty and the hobbies we love to do.

One day when we look back, we will realize that we don't really need that much, but then we cannot turn back time for what we have missed.

Life is not about making money, acquiring power or recognition. Life is definitely not about work! Work is only necessary to keep us living so as to enjoy the beauty and pleasures of life.

Lessons to Learn from The Story:

Life is a balance of Work and Play, Family and Personal time. You have to decide how you want to balance your Life. Define your priorities, realize what you are able to compromise but always let some of your decisions be based on your instincts.

Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of Life, the whole aim of human existence. So, take it easy, do what you want to do and appreciate nature. Life is fragile, Life is short. Do not take Life for granted. Live a balance lifestyle and enjoy Life!

Never take some one for granted,Hold every person Close to your Heart because you might wake up one day and realise that you have lost a diamond while you were too busy collecting stones." Remember this always in life.

Rough Dry Feet, Get fish

A popular trend in China, Japan and Turkey, that if you have dry rough and cracked feet then they soak them in a small pail filled with hundreds of miniature fish that will then eat the dead skin off your feet. These fish are called doctor fish or gara rufa and they are completely harmless except for eating dead skin.

Dry Pits-Exfoliate Them

If your underarms start to feel dry and flaky, exfoliate them with a gentle face scrub to keep skin smooth and natural looking for those sleeveless days. It will also help to properly absorb residue from underarm deodorant.

Need a Shave, Use Hair Conditioner

Run out of shaving cream then double up on the hair conditioner. It will soften the hair making it easier to shave and leave your legs feeling silky smooth.

Got a Blemish, Dab on Honey

Cover the blemish with a dab of honey then cover with a band-aid. The honey will kill the bacteria, keeping the skin sterile, which will help the healing process.

Feeling Rough, Slap on an Avocado

Remove the pit and skin from an avacado and mash it in a bowl. Slather the mashed avacado all over your body and let sit for 10 to 20 minutes, then rinse off. Your skin will be smooth and soft. Avacado is a natural moisturizer.

Raat yunh dil mein teri khoee hui yaad aayee
Jaise veeraaney mein chupkey sey bahaar aa jaye
Jaisey sehra on mein howley se chaley baadey naseem
Jaisey beemaar ko bey wajhey Qaraar aa jaaye

English Translation

Last night, your lost memories crept into my heart
as spring arrives secretly into a barren garden
as a cool morning breeze blows slowly in a desert
as a sick person feels well, for no reason.

A Prison Evening

Each star a rung,
night comes down the spiral
staircase of the evening.
The breeze passes by so very close
as if someone just happened to speak of love.
In the courtyard,
the trees are absorbed refugees
embroidering maps of return on the sky.
On the roof,
the moon - lovingly, generously -
is turning the stars
into a dust of sheen.
From every corner, dark-green shadows,
in ripples, come towards me.
At any moment they may break over me,
like the waves of pain each time I remember
this separation from my lover.

This thought keeps consoling me:
though tyrants may command that lamps be smashed
in rooms where lovers are destined to meet,
they cannot snuff out the moon, so today,
nor tomorrow, no tyranny will succeed,
no poison of torture make me bitter,
if just one evening in prison
can be so strangely sweet,
if just one moment anywhere on this earth.

Inspirational Story " Gautum Buddha and The man"..Must Read for All.

Gautum Buddha was sitting under a banyan tree. One day, a furious man came to him and started abusing him.
The man thought that Gautum Buddha would reciprocate in the same manner, but to his utter surprise, there was not the slightest change in the expression on his face.

Now, the man became more furious. He hurled more and more abuses at Buddha. However, Gautum Buddha was completely unmoved. Actually there was a look of compassion on his

face. Ultimately the man was tired of abusing him. He asked, "I have been abusing you like anything, but why are you not angry at all ?"

Gautum Buddha calmly replied, "My dear brother, I have not accepted a single abuse from you."

"But you heard all of them, didn't you?" The man argued half-heartedly.
Buddha said, "I do not need the abuses, so why should I even hear them?"

Now the man was even more puzzled. He could not understand the calm reply from Gautum Buddha.

Looking at his disturbed face, Buddha further explained, "All those abuses remain with you."

"It cannot be possible. I have hurled all of them at you," the man persisted.

Buddha calmly repeated his reply, "But I have not accepted even a single abuse from you ! Dear brother, suppose you give some coins to somebody, and if he does not accept them, with whom will those coins remain?"

The man replied, "If I have given the coins and not needed by someone, then naturally they would remain with me."

With a meaningful smile on his face, Buddha said, "Now you are right. The same has happened with your abuses. You came here and hurled abuses at me, but I have not accepted a single abuse from you. Hence, all those abuses remain with you only. So there is no reason to be angry with you."

The man remained speechless. He was ashamed of his behavior and begged for Buddha's forgiveness.

- Sahir Ludhianavi-

(Intezar in english)Waiting

The moon is dull, the sky is silent,
in the lap of sleep the whole world is still.

In the distant valley the white clouds
are bowing down and loving the mountains.
And my heart full of unfulfilled desires
has been waiting for you for long.

Come in the shadows of spring
for love might not last for long.
Come, I am an unfortunate one,
I might not last till 'morrow comes.

Come, the stars might get lost
in the morning dust as always.
Come so that my wide open eyes waiting
sadly for you could rest for a night.

The moon is dull, the sky is silent,
in the lap of sleep the whole world is still.


(Waiting in Urdu) intizaar

chaaNd maddham hai, aasmaaN chup hai
niiNd kii god meN jahaaN chup hai

duur vaadii meN duudhiyaa baadal
jhuk ke parbat ko pyaar karte haiN
dil meN naakaam hasrateN lekar
ham teraa intizaar karte haiN

in bahaaroN ke saaye meN aa jaa
phir muhabbat javaaN rahe na rahe
zindagii tere naa-muraadoN par
kal talak meh’rbaaN rahe na rahe

roz kii tarah aaj bhii taare
subh kii gard meN na kho jaayeN
aa ! tere Gham meN jaagtii aankheN
kam se kam aik raat so jaayeN

chaaNd maddham hai, aasmaaN chup hai
niiNd kii god meN jahaaN chup hai
