Today is our President's 80th birthday. I wrote a status message to wish him on his birthday. A friend corrected me saying that he was actually the Prime Minister and not the President of the country. It was a puppy shame feeling for me. I covered my face with both my hands and my heart pounded faster and faster and I came with a feeble come back saying if only he had opened his mouth, I would have known that. Talking about Presidents of the country, after the dynamic Abdul Kalaam's tenure, I seriously do not know who and all became the presidents of our country. Such were their presence in this country.

Manmohan Singh has single handedly given a scare to the Japanese Robotic industry. The Japanese are racking their heads to find a better and sophisticated Robot. After Manmohan Singh became the prime minister of our country smiley central introduced the following smiley

On this wonderful day, I take this opportunity to wish our wonderful man a fantastic 80th birthday and as faithful citizens of the country, let us celebrate it with silence. These are some of the photos that were taken by our special reporter when rulers of various countries came to wish Manmohan Singh on his birthday.

One friend of mine Adarsh just made this amazing statement - " Prime Minister Manmohan has been our role model in our Viva and internals during our college days".

A HR Manager's Love Letter!!!

September 12 2012

Ever wondered how a HR Manager could write a love letter to his girlfriend?
Dearest Ms. Anuska 

Sub: Offer of love!

I am very happy to inform you that I have fallen in Love with you since the 20th of October (Thursday). With reference to the meeting held between us on the 19th of Oct. at 1500hrs, I would like to present myself as a prospective lover. Our love affair would be on probation for a period of three months and depending on compatibility, would be made permanent.

Of course, upon completion of probation, there will be continuous on the job training and performance appraisal schemes leading up to promotion from lover to spouse. The expenses incurred for coffee and entertainment would initially be shared equally between us. Later, based on your performance, I might take! up a larger share of the expenses. However I am broadminded enough to be taken care of, on your expense account.

I request you to kindly respond within 30 days of receiving this letter, failing which, this offer would be cancelled without further notice and I shall be considering someone else. I would be happy, if you could forward this letter to your sister, if you do not wish to take up this offer.

Wish you all the best!

Thanking you in anticipation,

Yours sincerely,

HR Manager

A chat with myself

September 9 2012 

I chat with prabhupepsi today(yes its me, myself). Although I had some ideas he disagreed with about civilisation and the like, he said I was making good eye contact, smiling, and able to listen to him.

And he didn't pour cold water on my life plans like everyone else has, saying that I need purpose and structure in my life. I've just got to stop the cycle of depression. Since he thinks mental illness is caused/made worse by stressful triggers that can be identified he's keen for me to write a daily diary so I can better learn to identify such triggers, because it's not something I've proved good at. Quite often I can find no reason for a mood change at all, yet he insists there is one. I don't know what I think about this.

We talked about the life. A safe way of doing things. Eminently sensible advice. So why can't I take it? Why I am stubbornly kicking against it? Why am I still planning to continue the reduction on such a rapid schedule?

One of the reasons is my loneliness. I've since lost a love and have another love to go to get back to where I want to be, the place where I actually like the way my life looks and feels. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME. Maybe that's unhealthy but I can't imagine going to past and doing all these new things I'm planning unless I've lost this love. And I can't wait to get off it and for my life to return to normal. 

I feel I'm strong enough to cope with anything and this time will be different. But it could all go disastrously wrong and then will I wish I'd listened? Oh I don't know. I know what I *should* do but I don't know yet what I *will* do.

This simple checklist can help measure how you are nurturing your relationships.

The Gift of Listening 
But you must really listen. Don't interrupt, don't daydream, don't plan your response. Just listen.

The Gift of Affection 
Be generous with appropriate hugs, kisses, pats on the back and handholds. Let these small actions demonstrate the love you have for family and friends.

The Gift of Laughter 
Clip cartoons. Share articles and funny stories. Your gift will say, "I love to laugh with you."

The Gift of Solitude 
There are times when we want nothing better than to be left alone. Be sensitive to those times and give the gift of solitude to others.

The Gift of a Favor 
Every day, go out of your way to do something kind.

The Gift of a Written Note 
It can be a simple "Thanks for the help" note or a full sonnet. A brief, handwritten note may be remembered for a lifetime.

The Gift of a Compliment 
A simple and sincere, "You look great in red," "You did a super job," or
"That was a wonderful meal" can make someone's day.

The Gift of a Cheerful Disposition 
The easiest way to feel good is to extend a kind word to someone.
