तब तो रोज़ इंतज़ार रहता था
बस एक झलक पा जाने का
कितने दिन और कितने महीने
न मालूम कितना समय गंवाया
बस उसी पागलपन के साथ
उसकी वो छुपी मुस्कराहट पर
सामने आते ही होश फाख्ता
अगले दिन फिर वही जुनून
दोस्तों के साथ भी मिलकर
ठहाके लगाने की वो वारदातें
अब वाकई पागलपन लगती हैं
फिर जब उसे कुछ मालूम न था
अब उन यादों के समंदर में
अब बस अक्सर अंगड़ाई लेते हैं
पुराने दोस्त मिलकर फिर कभी
जोरों से ठहाके लगा देते हैं!

She was somewhere
But not seen around
Eyes could not find
Yet I felt her around
Her utterances are like
A reverberating sound
Her unspoken words
Making noisy sound
My mind laughs loud
Sensitivities whirlwind
Emotions turn anxious
Yet nothing is found
Confusion now prevails
What’s on the ground?
Some reminiscences
Still haunt me around!

खुदा बनने चला था जब वो
मंजिल का पता मालूम न था
नेकी का दौलतमंद है खुदा
बस इतना उसे मालूम था
टेढ़े मेढ़े रास्तों से गुज़रते
उसका कुछ पता भी न था
नेकी की राह थामी उसने
लगा दूसरा रास्ता न था
खुदा तो न बन सका वो
पर बन गया इन्सान था
खुदी में ही है छुपी खुदाई
ज़रूर अब उसे मालूम था

India's Republic Day Sentiments

Tomorrow India will celebrate the 62nd Republic Day. The country has gone a long way in its development, improving the quality of life, and rediscovering the global importance and strength. The recent rise of India as one of the major emerging global powers is phenomenal. It speaks volumes about the concerted efforts of all in the country. Walking thus far, in spite of wide disparities and population issues, has been quite a challenge.

In the overall view, the country has done exceedingly well to maintain the spirit of democracy, economic growth, industrial and infrastructure development, defence, science and technology, knowledge based industries; and many more..

However, the society has experienced the progress in a 'mixed bag'. There are issues of graft and corruption, criminalisation of the business and politics, nepotism, growing white collar and general crimes, growing disparities of income and inefficient distribution system,new social elites, breaking family ties, lowering values and ethics,good governance issues, regionalism and linguism, parallel black economy; poor amenities in the rural areas, migration from villages to cities in search of making a better living;expensive healthcare for the poor; etc.

India needs to consolidate the gains from the development so far. Its time to look for the long-term issues now. Do we need to consider the Presidential system of government (in the cumpulsion of coalition governments; or do we go for the proprtionate representation system? Is the time ripe to consider alternatives? Do we need to empower the local bodies and Panchayat institutions for most of the development spendings (with strong internal controls and social audit)? Do we need to relook at the laws and the justice system? When will we be able to enforced the fundamental rights of the citizen in letter and spirit? Likewise the questions are many. We hope to find answers in the coming years!

One last thing on Republic that immediately comes to my mind is the Plato's prescription of a 'Philosopher King' in his book Republica. May be the top leaders should do some introspection on being the 'philosopher king' to take the country ahead in most wanted manner.

26th january aso happens to be the National Day of Australia. A country where the prisoners of the Empire were rehabilitated, has done so well in all areas; why cann't India do so well or even better?

Nepal has the Potential to Develop Faster

Nepal, the Himalayan country, has vast potential to develop much faster than it is doing now. The governance and public sector managment of the country is weak; and if toned up and strengthened,it will have salutery results. The bureaucrats are intelligent; yet not given due importance in the system.

Over the years, the influncial political bosses have insubordinated them and their decision making abilities are seldom used. The public servants also haven't tried to walk the 'extra mile' to rejuvenate their position and role. The nascent Parliamentary systems are yet to become efficvient; and handling the affairs of the legislative busniess is still in the growing phase. In tandem with other reforms, the civil service reforms may be crucial landmark for the country.

Nonetheless, the country has natural resources, scenic beauty, excellent tourist destinations, three weather zone terrains (plain,hills; and mountains); and certain gifted advantageous positions. Propoer utilization of forest and water resources will bring enough riches and comfort levels.

The cultural side of Nepal is unparallelled! There is every type of tourism (and many more potentials)activity in Nepal. The people are tourism friendly and warm to the visitors. The ever smiling people compell you to keep smiling in all circumstances. The women (though not very well treated in general)are very hardworking and are the nucleous of the family customs, traditions and life. The family system and bondings are strong; yet they have modernised the attitudes with the times.

Promoting tourism by seeking investments from the Public Private Partnerships, BOOT, and foreign investment will open the windows of affluence for the local population. It will also control and may be reverse the migration patterns from the mountains; like it did in the several Alpine countries of Europe.

Promotion of domestic and SAARC tourism will open floodgates of opportunites for the local population. Nepal can host at least 100 million tourists from India and SAARC countires alone (as against the one million foreign tourists targetted in the Nepal Tourism Year 2011)in times to come. This requires peace, law and order; promotions; and tourism developed in packages.

In spite of all the negative publicity around the World, Nepal has not much of law and order and peace problems. Political parties too have declared a self-imposed ban on the general strikes in the country for one year. It speaks volumes about the collective desire of the political leadership for the common goals. The 'consensus leadership' that is being talked about (in the absence of majority) and discussed at all political and social levels will provide the vital stability to the country in the budding stage of democracy. In genral people of Nepal live in harmony and will continue to do so; in my opinion.

The times are hard now; and require a contribution by one and all, to help develop Nepal into a great tourist destination and toruism friendly country. The present generation will have to promote the balanced growth and development of all the the regions and districts. National goals need to be pursued; even at the expense of their personal hardships and losses. The crucial sectors (apart from social sectors) to look at will be the tourism, energy and infrastructure, transport, agriculture and agro-based industries, knowledge based organisations, Aryurvda and herbal medicines.

The outllok in medium to long-term is bright; but the management and maintenance of the country, people and national resources will be the challenge to meet the goal. I thouroughly enjoy being in Nepal (coming from the childhood backgound of lviving in the across the borders in the West, I hav no problem of language, culture, food, music and so on..they all are so similar) everyday and trying to do my bit in whatever way I can.

वक़्त की अहमियत है मैंने जानी
जब वक़्त ही नहीं रहा मेरे पास
हुआ करता था वक़्त जब मेरे पास
सब कुछ था मेरे ही आस पास
मैं टालता रहा हर उस लम्हे को
जो हो सकता था मेरे लिए खास
मौके अक्सर आते जाते रहे थे
रोज़ ही कई इर्द गिर्द मेरे पास
सोचता था क्या है ज़ल्दी अभी
वक़्त ही वक़्त है अभी मेरे पास
अब सब निक़लने लगा है दूर
और वक़्त नहीं है अब मेरे पास

Little World

The dawn whispers in my ears
How come thoughts are asleep?
Look yet another day’s journey
Awaits your moments of the joy
See the changing colors of sky
Brightening of the entire horizon
The golden sunshine is spread
Take up a new idea or the goal
With all the positive outlook
The World is awaiting you here
To help you achieve the wants
In your very own little world

अजीबो गरीब

बड़े ही अजीबो गरीब होते हैं लोग
कहते कुछ हैं करते और ही हैं लोग
हम सब भी शामिल हैं इस भीड़ में
हमारे बाद ही नज़र आते हैं लोग
किसी के संकट में नज़र भर फेर
अपनी अपनी राह चल देते लोग
सभी की खुशियों में तो शरीक होते
पर ईर्ष्या सी भी रखते हैं कई लोग
परिवार, देश, समाज के उत्तरदायित्व
अक्सर ही नज़रंदाज़ करते हैं लोग
जीवन भर दौड़ भाग कर भी अंततः
उसी अनंत में समा जाते सब लोग

On his first day in office, as President Abraham Lincoln entered to give his inaugural address, one man stood up. He was a rich aristocrat.

He said, "Mr. Lincoln, you should not forget that your father used to make shoes for my family."

And the whole Senate laughed; they thought they had made a fool of Lincoln.

But certain people are made of a totally different mettle. Lincoln looked at the man directly in the eye and said, "Sir, I know that my father used to make shoes for your family, and there will be many others here, because he made shoes the way nobody else can.

He was a creator. His shoes were not just shoes; he poured his whole soul into them. I want to ask you, have you any complaint? Because I know how to make shoes myself. If you have any complaint I can make you another pair of shoes. But as far as I know, nobody has ever complained about my father's shoes. He was a genius, a great creator and I am proud of my father".

The whole Senate was struck dumb. They could not understand what kind of man Abraham Lincoln was. He was proud because his father did his job so well that not even a single complaint had ever been heard.

Remember: "No one can hurt you without your consent."

"It is not what happens to us that hurts us. It is our response that hurts us"

शमशीर तो है मेरे हाथों में
अब भी संभाली हुई मगर
एक क़तरा भी भी खून का
इसमें कोई लगा नहीं कभी
दामन मेरा बेदाग ज़रूर है
मगर बात मौके की है ये
मैं हिम्मत ही कर न सका
कभी इसे ज़रा आजमाने की
सुना था ज़मीर भी होता था
पहले शमशीरबाजों का यहाँ
हैरान देखता रहता हूँ अक्सर
शम्शीरबाज़ी इस ज़माने की

7 Ways To Improve Your Relationship - By Margaret Paul

Good relationships don't just happen. I've heard many of my clients state that, "If I have to work at it, then it's not the right relationship." This is not a true statement, any more than it's true that you don't have to work at good physical health through exercise, eating well, and stress reduction.

I've discovered, in the 35 years that I've been counseling couples, 7 choices you can make that will not only improve your relationship, but can turn a failing relationship into a successful one.


This is the most important choice you can make to improve your relationship. This means that you learn how to take responsibility for your own feelings and needs. This means that instead of trying to get your partner to make you feel happy and secure, you learn how to do this for yourself through your own thoughts and actions. This means learning to treat yourself with kindness, caring, compassion, and acceptance instead of self-judgment. Self-judgment will always make you feel unhappy and insecure, no matter how wonderfully your partner is treating you.

For example, instead of getting angry at your partner for your feelings of abandonment when he or she is late, preoccupied and not listening to you, not turned on sexually, and so on, you would explore your own feelings of abandonment and discover how you might be abandoning yourself.

When you learn how to take full, 100% responsibility for yourself, then you stop blaming your partner for your upsets. Since blaming one's partner for one's own unhappiness is the number one cause of relationship problems, learning how to take loving care of yourself is vital to a good relationship.


Treat others the way you want to be treated. This is the essence of a truly spiritual life. We all yearn to be treated lovingly -- with kindness, compassion, understanding, and acceptance. We need to treat ourselves this way, and we need to treat our partner and others this way. Relationships flourish when both people treat each other with kindness. While there are no guarantees, often treating another with kindness brings kindness in return. If your partner is consistently angry, judgmental, uncaring and unkind, then you need to focus on what would be loving to yourself rather than reverting to anger, blame, judgment, withdrawal, resistance, or compliance. Kindness to others does not mean sacrificing yourself. Always remember that taking responsibility for yourself rather than blaming others is the most important thing you can do. If you are consistently kind to yourself and your partner, and your partner is consistently angry, blaming, withdrawn and unavailable, then you either have to accept a distant relationship, or you need to leave the relationship. You cannot make your partner change -- you can only change yourself.


When conflict occurs, you always have two choices regarding how to handle the conflict: you can open to learning about yourself and your partner and discover the deeper issues of the conflict, or you can try to win, or at least not lose, through some form of controlling behavior. We've all learning many overt and subtle ways of trying to control others into behaving the way we want: anger, blame, judgment, niceness, compliance, caretaking, resistance, withdrawal of love, explaining, teaching, defending, lying, denying, and so on. All the ways we try to control create even more conflict. Remembering to learn instead of control is a vital part of improving your relationship.

For example, most people have two major fears that become activated in relationships: the fear of abandonment -- of losing the other - and the fear of engulfment -- of losing oneself. When these fears get activated, most people immediately protect themselves against these fears with their controlling behavior. But if you chose to learn about your fears instead of attempt to control your partner, your fear would eventually heal. This is how we grow emotionally and spiritually -- by learning instead of controlling.


When people first fall in love, they make time for each other. Then, especially after getting married, they get busy. Relationships need time to thrive. It is vitally important to set aside specific times to be together -- to talk, play, make love. Intimacy cannot be maintained without time together.


Positive energy flows between two people when there is an "attitude of gratitude." Constant complaints creates a heavy, negative energy, which is not fun to be around. Practice being grateful for what you have rather than focusing on what you don't have. Complaints create stress, while gratitude creates inner peace, so gratitude creates not only emotional and relationship health, but physical health as well.


We all know that "work without play makes Jack a dull boy." Work without play makes for dull relationships as well. Relationships flourish when people laugh together, play together, and when humor is a part of everyday life. Stop taking everything so seriously and learn to see the funny side of life. Intimacy flourishes when there is lightness of being, not when everything is heavy.


A wonderful way of creating intimacy is to do service projects together. Giving to others fills the heart and creates deep satisfaction in the soul. Doing service moves you out of yourself and your own problems and supports a broader, more spiritual view of life.

If you and your partner agree to these 7 choices, you will be amazed at the improvement in your relationship!


Ayurvedic Concept of Using the Drug as a Wholesome

Introduction: Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of medicine, strongly believes in uni & poly-herbal formulations and scientists of modern era often ask for scientific validation of herbal remedies. The concept of standardized extracts definitely provides a solid platform for scientific validation of herbals. Now a day it is believed that standardized extracts provide a consistent and effective alternative to crude drugs, as they constitute calculated ratio of the active constituents. The concept of standardization is now being widely welcomed and it is being accepted as a rational way to increase the acceptance of medicinal herbs among the physicians and patients, but the Ayurveda advocates using the drug as wholesome.

Background: Poly-herbal formulations as mentioned in classical texts of Ayurveda, are used by number of pharmaceutical companies. It is very difficult for them to understand the theme of poly-herbal preparations as a number of ingredients may vary from two to 25 or more. It is very difficult to set the standards of these types of formulations. The situation is further worsened by the multiple uses of these formulations as mentioned in Ayurveda. Keeping in view the growing popularity of herbals, it is being thought that it is the need of hour to have analytical data, bio-equivalence, pharmacological, toxicological studies with particular reference to herbal-synthetic drug interactions and this is possible only if standardized extracts concentrated to known therapeutic constituents are used.

Take the Drug Wholesome- Even-though drugs have got some active principles with which they work, they have some other fractions too, which counteract their bad effects, if any. Therefore Ayurveda advocates that drug should be used as a whole so that the desired effects may be had without any side effects. Ayurveda propounds the principles of Rasa Panchaka and attributes the actions of a drug to any one of the Rasa-Vipaka-Guna-Veerya-Prabhava. The concept and description of Veerya shows beyond doubt that the ancient Acharyas has a very clear idea about the modus operandi of drugs. Efforts have been made to preserve and fortify the potency (Veerya) of drugs by certain pharmaceutical processes and techniques. But, evidently, the Acharyas refrained from isolating and using only the active principles of drugs, because by doing so complications and side effects also arise. Ayurveda believes in treatment, which gives relief but causes no iotrogenic disease or complications. Says Vagbhatta: ‘That is the ideal treatment, which cures the disease, but does not create another diseases or complications’ (Shamanam nah tuh Kpanam).The second implication of ‘Give the drug as a whole is that it is Agni, which is responsible for the health as well as disease and, therefore, drugs should be so selected and used as to improve the condition of Agni at all levels. Most of the Ayurvedic drugs have got Deepana and Pachana properties. If the active fraction alone is administered, it may not improve the Agni and the promise of ‘Treat the patient’ may not be served’.

The third implication is that drugs possess not only the therapeutically active fractions but also some other fractions, which help the patient restore his health. By isolating the active principle and throwing out the rest of the drug, we throw out very essential and useful things, which may, otherwise, prove very useful for health. Therefore, use the drug as a whole.In a very broad sense, the pharmacological study of a drug is carried to find out its pharmacodynamic action, pharmacotherapeutic action and chemotherapeutic action. Ayurveda believes in treatment without complication and, therefore, the Ayurvedic drugs, as they are administered, show no encouraging pharmacodynamic or chemotherapeutic actions; they show only the pharmacotherapeutic actions well. Let us illustrate this point-- Shankhapuspi reduces hypertension but does not cause hypotension in healthy volunteers. Ayurvedic antacids reduce HCl in cases of hyperchlorhydria but do not cause hypochlorhydria even after their prolonged use. Punarnava, Gokshuru and Pashanbheda cause diuresis in cases of Shotha and Jalodara but their diuretic action is not seen much in healthy volunteers. Kutaja and Jatiphala stop diarrhoea but their prolonged use in healthy volunteers does not cause constipation. These are some of the examples to show that the Ayurvedic drugs have pharmacotherapeutic actions only. But when the active fractions of drugs are isolated and used, they show pharmacodynamic action as well as pharmacotherapeutic action. Such isolated fraction renders quicker relief but also cause side effects. To avoid the side effects, give the drug as a whole.Majority of the Ayurvedic drugs show only the pharmacotherapeutic actions and never cause any complication. A few drugs, which show pharmacodynamic actions also, have been included in the category of poisons. For instance, Jaipala causes purging to a patient and also to a healthy volunteer. Jaipala is included in poisonous drugs. Another interesting point is that most of the drugs have fractions in them, which balance their actions. For instance, Saptarangi was critically analyzed and it was found to have one fraction possessing hypo-glycaemic action and another fraction possessing hyper-glycaemic action. But when Saptarangi as a whole was administered to the patients of Diabetes mellitus, it showed only a mild hypo-glycaemic action. This points to the specific arrangement of fractions in the drug in such a manner that only good actions are found and harmful actions are avoided. Recent experiments with Bhallataka in cases of malignancy showed that Bhallataka as a whole should be administered to achieve better results with no complications. Many such examples can be cited to prove it.

There is a genuine anxiety in the field of medical science that the bacteria is developing resistance to the synthetic preparations, more concernedly the broad spectrum drugs (antibiotics). These drugs are very bad side effects; these drugs are very essential to check the infection effectively. But the tragedy is that the bacteria are developing resistance to these drugs and the body is losing the natural resistance power because of these drugs. Body never develops resistance against any Ayurvedic drug. This is why the Ayurvedic drugs can be used for a very long period effectively and safely. Not withstanding the scientific significance of ‘Give the drug as a whole’, the socio-economic implication demands quick relief, which some of our drugs fail to give. This is why there is more fascination to isolating the active principles and administering them to achieve quicker results even at the cost of complications. The intermediary way out is to increase the potency of the drug as a whole by changing the formulations and this is the direction in which many researches are being carried out in the country.And Above All: The most of the modern drugs have toxic effects encountered by the clinicians in their practice. This is why it is said: “When a drug is given, a risk is taken.” Ayurvedic medicines cause no toxic or side effects.Three are some Ayurvedic drugs, which are poisons, but they are fully and perfectly purified before administration. Similar is the case with certain metallic preparations. The finished products of Ayurvedic formularies do not cause any toxic or side effects. In some of the formularies, antidotes are added to avoid any possibility of toxic effects. For example, in any Ayurvedic Jwaraghna medicine (antipyretic medicine), Vastsanabha is the main ingredient and Tankana is unfailingly added to it to nullify the toxic effects of Vatsanabha, if any. Similarly, Bhallataka is always administered with ghrita to be used with, before and after it. Ayurveda favors administration of crude drugs and their preparations. We don’t have synthetics or antibiotics in Ayurveda. The question of tolerance, resistance or addiction to Ayurvedic drugs does not arise. But if certain Asavas or Pakas or any other preparation for rejuvenation or virility are taken for a long period, patients become attuned to them and they feel a sense of well being when they take them. But, then, it is not addiction as the drug can be easily withdrawn without any withdrawal symptoms. When a drug is given, a risk is taken’ has still finer implications. Disease is a danger-signal of the body; it indicates fight between the tissues and the bacteria; it shows that the body is trying to neutralize and nullify the ill effects of the pathological metabolites, which require to be washed out of the body. Let us simply help the body in its struggle to overpower the disease.Conclusion : Therefore, it can be said that the what is needed is to increase the potency of the drug as a whole rather than to isolate and administer the active fractions of the drug. The wholeistic approach to man and medicine is gaining momentum and this is definitely for the good of humanity that such principles be adopted and worked out on certain sound foundations. Hence, in nutshell it can be said that ”Treat the man as a whole and Give the drug as a whole”. Because treating only disease and giving only extracts does not support to the fundamental principles of Ayurveda.Ayurveda always advocates “ Shamanam Nah Tu Kopanam”. Let us try to understand the real essence of the Ayurveda with help of its own basic concepts.

Need and Greed

The gap of need and greed
Is the important one indeed
Needs can be unlimited also
Greed could be limited too
Great to be greedy for all
For growing personality tall
Need can be fulfilling here
If the means are appropriate
Needs expand to proportions
If greed remains unfettered
Its good to be a bit greedy
To help self and the needy
Nothing remains to anyone
At the end of day for sure
Those alone shall be happy
Who all are contented one's

When hopes are diminishing
Old friends too are leaving
The tough it’s all becoming
That’s when one tests living
Go out and experience things
Reach out to the new beings
There is no dearth of friends
There are far many waiting
Birds for you are still singing
The joyous melodies of living
Don’t lose heart and courage
Inside you is all illuminating
Find and get the all bringing
World for you still waiting


फक्र था मुझे जिन शख्शियतों पर
आज वो ज़ज्बात बेमानी हो गए हैं
कभी एक धूप की किरण से थे
आज अँधेरे के सानी हो गए हैं
जिन कन्धों पे सोंपी थी ज़िम्मेदारी
आज वो मेरी परेशानी बन गए हैं
जिनकी ईमान पर पढ़े थे कसीदे
आज वो बस बेईमानी रह गए हैं
सोचा बनेंगे सबब कामयाबी का
उन्हीं के दर फरियादी हो गए हैं

महंगे प्याज

नेताजी महंगे प्याज को लेकर
लोगों को सन्मार्ग दिखाने लगे
अपनी खीस से अब वे इधर
बचाव करने लगे बढ़े दामों का
आंसू तो बस आंसू ही ठहरे
प्याज के या घड़ियाल के हों
क्यों रोते हो रोना तुम यहाँ
प्याज के दामों का बार बार
शराब के दामों पर नहीं कहता
कोई भी तुममें से कोई शब्द!
प्याज भी एक तामसी पदार्थ है
दाम बढ़ेंगे तो समाज में भी
इसका सेवन कम ही तो होगा
फिर, पड़ोसी मुल्कों का प्याज
व्यापार के भी देगा नए अवसर
ये प्याज के आंसू बहाना छोडो
हमारी पार्टी से फिर नाता जोड़ो

Where only good happens
I dreamt of such a society
Goodness always prevails
Bad is shunned by society
I was proved wrong though
I still look for such variety
I too admire development
Also the modernized city
Why we all find is so hard
To understand the mighty
Do we want us to become
Competing with almighty?
Everything remains back
As if the wealth of society
Gap in the need and greed
We all forget, what a pity!

मैं पी तो रहा जरुर था मगर
प्यास शायद ही मुझे थी कोई
मैं जिए तो जा रहा था मगर
मेरे पास वजह न थी कोई
मैं चलता भी रहा था ज़रूर
मेरी मंजिल पास न थी कोई
मेरे पास जाने कितने लोग थे
मुझे एहसास तक न था कोई
मैं बहुत कुछ चाहता था पाना
यहाँ भी सीमा नहीं थी कोई
मैं होशो-हवास में था मगर
मेरी हर साँस थी मानो खोई हुई


We all have cross-vies on most things. We are no sure to take one view on most issues, events and people! If ourselves have cross-views; why cann't we grant the othrs to cross our views and have their own views? In any case they too will cross our ways some day albeit through thier own cross-views!

Allow others to respect and have thier own views and recognise the possibility and reasoning for your own cross-views. It does not, of course, does not justify the negatives and perverted thiking of anyone!

Does that make sense to you? No, I respect the fact that your views can be different. :)

कांपते हाथों से मैंने भेजा है
अपनी मोहब्बत का ये पैगाम
सिसकती सी सांझ में बसा है
इस सर्द मौसम का ऐलान
दो गर्म होंठों से तुम अपने
इसे बस ज़रा गुनगुना देना
छूकर चला आयेगा वापस
वो मेरे पास ऐ मोहतरम
रुसवा न करना तुम मुझे
आज भी मुझे आने वाले
किसी वसंत का इंतज़ार है

new year "leak"

Every year we welcome and await the new year. We all plan to do better, wish better; and be better in the next year or new year. After a couple of days or a week, everything becomes business all usual. We just do the lip or written service to our commitments made or thought about!

It would be nice to do things in the 'new day' everyday and review it at the end of each day; what we planned to do and what remains to be suplemented to further our 'commitments'.

We commit for self a lot of things; but that may not have any relevance for the society and others in general. We can afford to be lazy for those but not for the larger ones that benefit others and the society.

Gear up pals to take the above route and celebtrate the new day everyday; to rejoice, do better and feel better!
