Mightier Than The Sword

Mightier Than The Sword

Clashing swords and seeping blood wounds,
agonizing wails and arenas of doom.
Crumbling promises and hidden truths,
revenge and betrayal, do we have no ruth?

Deepening scars and withering trust,
loyalty and faith, just a cloud of dust.
Forgotten obligations, disharmony inside and out
finding truce is now a search of doubt.

Before it is too late,
we can discipline to change our fate.
Perceive a place where bonds are made,
where everyone is bold, and not afraid. Continue Reading..

A Common man with ‘Uncommon’ deeds

Mr. Kalayanasundaram worked as a Librarian for 30 years. Every month during his 30 years tenure, he donated his entire salary to help the needy and fund deserving causes. He worked as a waiter in a hotel to meet his personal requirements. He donated even his pension amount of about rupees one million to the needy.

To the best of our knowledge he is the first person in the world to spend his entire earnings for a social cause. In recognition of his service, the U.S. government honored him with the ‘Man of the Millennium’ award. He received a sum of Rs. 30 crores as part of this award which he distributed entirely for the needy as usual. Moved by his passion to help others, Super Star Rajinikanth adopted him as his father. He is a lifetime bachelor who has dedicated his entire life to social service.

All our politicians, film stars, business tycoons, cricket maestros, media and citizens of Mother India should be proud, however a matter of deep regret and cause for introspection is the fact that the US Government has recognized the super human deeds of this humble Indian but we Indians even don’t know that such a super human lives amongst us.

Hat’s off to our very own Sir Kalayanasundaram… We Indians are extremely proud of you and proudly say “This can happen only in India”

“I’m 83 and Tired”—By Bill Cosby

“I’m 83 and Tired” Worth reading…..

This should be required reading for every man, woman and child in all the world…

“I’m 83 and I’m Tired”

I’m 83. Except for brief period in the 50′s when I was doing my National
Service, I’ve worked hard
 since I was 17. Except for some serious
health challenges, I put in 50-hour weeks, and didn’t call in sick in nearly
40 years. I made a reasonable salary, but I didn’t inherit my job or my
income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, it looks as
though retirement was a bad idea, and
I’m tired. Very tired.

I’m tired of being told that I have to “spread the wealth” to people who
don’t have my work ethic. I’m tired of being told the government will take
the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy
to earn it.

I’m tired of being told that Islam is a “Religion of Peace,” when every day I
can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and
daughters for their family “honor”; of Muslims rioting over some slight
offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren’t
“believers”; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning
teenage rape victims to death for “adultery”; of Muslims mutilating the
genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur’an and
Shari’a law tells them to.

I’m tired of being told that out of “tolerance for other cultures” we must let
Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries use our oil money to fund mosques
and madrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in Australia , New Zealand ,
UK , America and Canada , while no one from these countries are allowed to
fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia or any other
Arab country to teach love and tolerance..

I’m tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global
warming, which no one is allowed to debate.

I’m tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help
support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ
rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses
or stick a needle in their arm while they tried to fight it off?

I’m tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of all
parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful
mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting
caught. I’m tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.

I’m really tired of people who don’t take responsibility for their lives and
actions. I’m tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination
or big-whatever for their problems.

I’m also tired and fed up with seeing young men and women in their teens and
early 20′s be-deck them selves in tattoos and face studs, thereby making
themselves un-employable and claiming money from the Government.

Yes, I’m damn tired. But I’m also glad to be 83.. Because, mostly, I’m not
going to have to see the world these people are making. I’m just sorry for
my granddaughter and their children. Thank God I’m on the way out and not
on the way in.

This is your chance to make a difference.
