Something to Ponder Over…


Every Artist gives his own name to his work. But there is no artist like a “mother”, who gives birth to a child, but gives father’s name!!!

Someone asked Life: Why are you so difficult…?!

Life smiled and said “You people never value and appreciate easy things…”

“If you want to feel rich,

just count all the things you have, that money cannot buy.


Money cannot buy these – respect from others; caring friends; well-wisher’s blessings; wisdom; a charming smile which makes the face really pretty and bright; a home where there is love and warmth; true love; good appetite; a capacity to enjoy; happiness; sound sleep; health, both physical and psychologicalit is the greatest gift and contentmentit is the greatest wealth. If you have these you are the richest person on earth.

Life is in constant conflict between love and ego.

Love always wants to say sorry.

Ego always wants to hear it!

Forgive others,

not because they deserve forgiveness,

but because you deserve Peace


We nurture grievances. This results in loss of sleep and other ailments. The insult, injury or harm was done once, but nourishing of grievance goes on endlessly by constantly remembering it. Never wallow in self-pity or resentment. To be wronged or offended is nothing unless you insist on remembering it. Therefore, forgive everyone for everything. Always forgive your enemies nothing annoys them as much. 


Man gets and forgets. God gives and forgives.

Forgive, forget and march on. 

Love flourishes in giving and forgiving.

The best relationship is not the one that brings together perfect people, but when each individual learns to live with the imperfections of others and can admire the other person’s good qualities and positive side!!!

Ponder Over These…

There are two things that pierce the human heart: Moments we wish would last forever. Moments we wish had never begun.  Today’s life is only for today.
