Last year Ive inculcated a good habit called reading.Unfortunately , I couldn’t carry it consistently bcoz of my lethargic nature. And also that I did not find any other book as engaging as five point someone . After that Ive started to read quite a number of books which I couldn’t complete and comprehend. Yesterday while I was in my favorite pastime, orkuting I happened to see a link that gave the audio book of RICH DAD POOR DAD which kept me occupied for an hour or so though I did not listen to the entire book, the contrasting points of view of the rich dad and poor dad in the book and the way it was projected by the author Robert Kiyosaki was commendable. Don’t mistake this for a literary review. Hope to express my thoughts on more good books in the coming days.
Some times it takes more than words to express something. Someone ,like me who has got a very low quotient of expression has to take some cues from this post for being able to express very clearly. The author’s clarity of expression without being pompous was commendable. Ive also seen through RGV’s blog and felt that his blog was directed towards a section of people. But he has an uncanny knack of expressing things that keeps the reader immersed.
Today , Sushil Kumar made us proud by winning a bronze medal at the Beijing Olympics. Undoubtedly, It is an achievement. But India which stands second to China in population doesn’t stand second to China in medals tally..Why?’
Ask the Indian Government for this..and you’ll come across a hell lot of politics that stand in between the way of the player and the medal.. And even in the print and electronic media where once upon a time we used to see the the status of the cricket match as the main headline in a news edition and cricket used to occupy the front page in the newspapers and magazines and some magazines extensively and exhaustively dedicated for the same…good for cricket..but not good for other sports..but slowly, I feel other sports are being seen on the same ground as cricket is seen these days..
Another reason why there aren’t many champions in the sports arena from India is that people especially a section of parents really cant see their son or daughter as an engineer or a doctor having a white collared job earning well…I hope this scenario in India changes for the better and I wish to see India shining in all the areas and should be on the world map for each and every positive development.
August 11 2007 was a red letter day in my life . It was the day I underwent a live related kidney transplant donated by my mother. I take this opportunity to salute my mothers’ infact , the whole of motherhood in this world for having such a compassionate heart . I wouldnt have lived now, in fact i wouldnt have been alive writing this particular post if my mother hadn’t been so kind. Kind is a big understatement but I cant help it as Im pretty poor at vocabulary. My 14 day stay at the hospital last year the same time had made me see what life is. I think it wouldnt be euphemistic if I say I was on the edge of a roof called life the same time last year.
During my recovery, I happened to know how the life of a kidney recipient would be and I was literally depressed for the fear of morbidity. But when i met other people of the recipient community, I began to think that god has been very kind to me for giving me a second lease of life in a situation where there was literally an exit. As I came back to normalcy , Ive come to know that many of my relatives, friends and some people who I dont even know prayed for my well being. Iam very thankful to all of them. Ive really made chill run through their spine..Im sorry for that…
Atleast from now, I hope to lead a disciplined life…….
Thanking my family and the almighty and the team of doctors who were god sent, I take leave…
