Dogs' - Man's Best friend
Dog, the most faithful, devoted and loving animal on this earth gives the tips of a happy living :
  •  Atithi Devo Bhava  :  Invite your guests with a smile and enthusiasm
  • Never miss an apportunity to go for a walk. It improves your health!
  • While walking enjoy the cool breeze on your face and suck in the fresh air.
  • Be polite with your well-wishers.
  • If somebody occupies your domain you have every right to resist and protest.
  • Take a deep sleep, stretch our body afterwards, get refreshed and be active.
  • Attract people with your witty intelligence and endear yourself to everybody.
  • If a bark is sufficient then there is no need to bite.
  • If is it a sunny day, make full use of it by running in a garden in the grass.
  • Anger and fight should not lead to termination of friendship. Forgive and forget.
  • Eat with pleasure and stop when you are still a little hungry.
  • Be loyal and honest, don’t pretend.
  • Dig deeply till the truth comes out.
  • If your closed one is in distress, just sit by their side and express your empathy.
  • Till somebody gains your confidence, don’t entertain them or let them in.

I think that best living thing on this earth is Dog. I had always heard and read that having and taking care of a pet is a real stress buster. But after bringing up two children, I was very apprehensive to bring home a young one. Children pestered always and we always postponed. It went on for years. But when they grew up and Rashmi my daughter offered to take care and manage him fully and independently, there was no reason to refuse.May be the truth is that in our heart we also wanted a pet.

How to deal with examination pressure ?
I was both shocked and pained by the incident that happened in PESIT engineering college day before yesterday. An young life was cut short by the insensitivity of the teachers. If the teachers have really put pressure on the boy and thereby were instrumental in the kid taking this extreme step it is really unpardonable. How can you force anybody to exceed their limits?
It is one thing to encourage and motivate but totally wrong to put pressure. Common, if that were the case why are you not Bill Gates or Steve Jobs? Come to think of it both of them were actually school drop-outs and leave alone becoming like them, even to work in their company, anybody would give up his right hand !

Laughter The Best Medicine

Where all that laughter has gone? Remember those giggles you shared in the classroom? Remember how you laughed and laughed with your friends during combined studies, holding your sides, till tears started rolling down your cheeks? Then surely you must remember the reason for that laughter. No? Try again. At least can you remember the last time you laughed like that recently ? Where do we lose that light mirth which makes us laugh at silliest possible reasons.In this bittersweet life it is the laughter which is the real elixir of life.
