    Words As Money

    I talk less so that I will give people less leeway to criticise me. The more I talk the more the rope becomes longer -- the rope with which they can hang me. I prefer to observe and wait before reacting to anything and everything ... I don't subscribe to the twitter generation...

    Sober And Mature

    Desire is the root cause of all evil. And what makes you happy makes you sad. What gives you pleasure gives you pain too. It's all a cycle...one follows the other. When a child is born, a father or mother is happy, But the same child gives them pain later when it grows...

    Eyes On Stars

    Once someone said: I don't want to leave my shoes behind, for someone will try it on. It sounds arrogant that nobody should take his place. There are many who have what they do not deserve and many, who though having talent, slumber in the dark caves of oblivion, forgotten...

    Words And Action

    Society knows and judges a person from what he speaks more than what he is or his actions. As a matter of fact, I use a lot of swear words and for this my friends call me cheap. The fact remains that I don't do bad things, actions that would hurt others. Well, the world knows...

    Avoiding The Unwanted

    In my childhood, we had a friendly doctor. His way of talking was funny in that he would treat everything lightly. Tell him your leg pains when you walked he would say, 'don't walk'. Tell him 'my chest pains when I breathe,' he would say 'dont breathe'. We would laugh, because...

    Joy And Punishment

    Minor Mistake, Big Abuse
