    I Try to Everyday

    If there is any way that I can help, I will. Every time, any day, any hour... doesn't matter. And why? Simply because I can and I want to make this world a little kinder. Just one person at a time. :-)

    Give, Receive And Dance....

    People often say that idealistic views are impractical. I think, that's only until one or some of us start practising some little part of that ideal. It might still not be a winning game, but thats only until someone wins!The students of Harker class of 2013 chose who should give...

    Because This Is How We Do It.

    I believe there comes a time in anyone's life when we realize that random acts of kindness are the oil that keeps the machine of life in perpetual motion, forward. The different religions have different ways to express the Golden Rule: eastern-types express the...

    Just Do It, Don't Think Too Much...

    Yesterday I was at a multiplex cinema hall to watch a movie. I was tired from travel and was transiting for the next. I bought myself a ticket for a recliner seat in the top line, paying 30% extra from the regular seats. The movie was to start in a few minutes. To my right was a...

    I Owe a Great Deal

    I very much believe in the pscyhology of paying it forward, and have a great deal to pay forward.  I have had many life-savers in my life, I have been cared for, taken in by strangers and integrated into their families during foreign travel.

    It Was Already My Life

    When I saw the movie 'Pay It Forward' I was overjoyed to see my ideals represented on film. I can give you so many examples but that isn't what you pass forward. In my case doing something for a stranger or friend is the easy bit... it comes naturally. The difficult bit is...

    Big Or Small

    I Want to Do More

    I think Pay it Forward is one of the best ideas ever.  To be so selfless in a moment is amazing and all you ask in return is that someone be that selfless as well at another point in time.  What we can do for the world and others if we all thought this way.  I do...
