Let us Start
Heavy rains remind us of challenges in life.
Never ask for a lighter rain.
Just pray for a better umbrella. That is attitude.
Life is not about finding the right person,
but creating the right relationship,
it’s not how we care in the beginning,
but how much we care till ending.
Some people always throw stones in your path. It depends on you what you make with them, Wall or Bridge? Remember you are the architect of your life.
When flood comes, fish eat ants and when flood recedes, ants eat fish.
Only time matters.
Just hold on, God gives opportunity to everyone!
Every problem has (n+1) solutions, where n is the number of solutions that you have tried and 1 is that you have not tried. That’s life.
It’s not important to hold all the good cards in life. But it’s important how well you play with the cards which you hold.
Often when we lose all hope and think this is the end,
God smiles from above and says,
relax dear its just a bend. Not the end.
Have Faith and have a successful life.
One of the basic differences between God and human is,
God gives, gives and forgives.
But human gets, gets, gets and forgets.
Be thankful in life!
Only two types of persons are happy in this world.
1st is Mad and 2nd is Child.
Be Mad to achieve what you desire and
be a Child to enjoy what you have achieved!
Never play with the feelings of others because you may win the game but the risk is that you will surely lose the person for life time.
The world suffers a lot. Not because of the violence of bad people;
but because of the silence of good people!
If friendship is your weakest point then you are the strongest person in the world.
Laughing faces do not mean that there is absence of sorrow! But it means that they have the ability to deal with it.
Opportunities are like sunrises,
if you wait too long you can miss them.
When you are in the light, everything follows you,
but when you enter into the dark,
even your own shadow doesn’t follow you.
Coin always makes sound
but the currency notes are always silent.
So when your value increases keep yourself calm silent.
It is very easy to defeat someone;
but it is very hard to win over someone

Designed by Berlin-based Studio Aisslinger, this incredibly attractive modular home was created almost 4,000 ft above sea level. Located near Bozen in Northern Italy, it features magnificent views of the Dolomite mountains, yet can be easily taken apart and rebuilt in a new location. This makes the structure perfect for the travelling nomad, all while leaving a minimal CO2 footprint.
Dubbed Fincube, the home is made entirely of local wood and the design is minimal, material-orientated and in close touch with nature. A 360-degree triple glazing is furnished with a second facade layer, giving the building a very elegant, yet modern shape.
The modular aspect of Fincube allows it to be embedded into a variety of landscapes including forests, meadows and mountainsides. The combination of long-lasting design and the option of changing its location make the Fincube a flexible home or hideaway, and a lifetime companion. To top it off, Fincube is a smart house, with all vital functions being controlled by a central touch panel.

Tom had been in Police work for 25 years.
Finally sick of the stress, he quits his job and buys 50 acres of land in the hills in Tasmania as far from humanity as possible.
He sees the postman once a week and gets groceries once a month. Otherwise it’s total peace and quiet.
After six months or so of almost total isolation, someone knocks on his door. He opens it and a huge, bearded man is standing there.
‘Name’s Cliff, your neighbour from forty miles up the road. Having a Christmas party Friday night. Thought you might like to come at about 5:00…’
‘Great’, says Tom, ‘after six months out here I’m ready to meet some local folks Thank you.’
As Cliff is leaving, he stops. ‘Gotta warn you. Be some drinking’.’
‘Not a problem’ says Tom. ‘After 25 years in the business, I can drink with the best of ’em’.
Again, the big man starts to leave and stops. ‘More ‘n’ likely gonna be some fighting’ too.’
‘Well, I get along with people, I’ll be all right! .I’ll be there. Thanks again.’
‘More’n likely be some wild sex, too,’ ‘Now that’s really not a problem’ says Tom, warming to the idea. ‘I’ve been all alone for six months! I’ll definitely be there.. By the way, what should I wear?’
‘Don’t much matter. Just gonna be the two of us.
