Count your blessings

We must never take anything for granted in life. That's why each blessing in life becomes a "miracle".

Weekend movie

This weekend I happened to watch 'Schindler's List'. It was not what you say a 'normal movie'. It really touched me. Among the million Germans who wanted to destroy the jews there was this one man who wanted to save them with all that he had... What a great person! Especially when he says 'I could have saved more!'...

There are a few schindler's whom we know even in our lives! Unsung heroes!
- Those who are willing to sacrifice a lot just to brighten up someone's life
- Those who dont worry about their comforts just to see a smile on someone else's face

The very fact that I am alive and writing a Blog is due to someone really really special! My Schindler...

When I saw that movie I was reminded a lot about him... About all what he had done... I know all my life isnt enough to reciprocate...

My Blog Introducer

Today I would like to give credit to my friend Vimal who introduced me to the world of Blogging. He is a friend who took so much pains to come over here to Milan to visit us. The greatest admiring thing about him was the way he drove his new BMW daringly alone in unknown parts of the WORLD (note: not Country!!) - across european countries! Hats off! But the best thing was the way he brought idli rice for me all the way from the US (inspite of him having said "Come on... US le irunthu varravan kitte kekkara vishayama ithu...")

Effort

At ten minutes to seven on a dark, cool evening in MEXICO city in 1968, John Stephen Arkwari of TANZANIA painfully hobbled into the Olympic stadium-The last to finish the marathon.The winner had already been crowned, and the victory ceremony was long finished. So the stadium was almost as empty as Arkwari, alone, His leg bloody and bandaged, struggled to circle the track to the finish line. The respected documentary filmmaker, Bud Greenspan, watched from a distance. Then, intrigued, Bud walked over to Arkwari and asked why he had continued the grueling struggle to the finish line even after the injury.
The young man from TANZANIA answered softly, "My country did not send me nine thousand miles to start the race. They sent me nine thousand miles to finish the race"
Effort is a commitment to seeing a task through to the end, not just until we get tired of it ....
