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

Question. Do I need sunscreen with more than 30 SPF? Short answer: No Sunscreens with an SPF (sun protection factor) of 30 block about 97% of ultraviolet rays, while sunscreens with an SPF of higher than 30 block 97%-98%. It’s more important that you choose “broad-spectrum” sunscreen, meaning it protects against both UVB and UVA rays. …Read More(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
Once there were 2 brothers who lived on the 80th floor of a tall building. On coming home one day, they realized to their dismay that the lifts were not working and that they have to climb the stairs home. After struggling to the 20th level, panting and tired, they decided to abandon their bags and come back for them the next day. They left their bags then and climbed on.
When they have struggled to the 40th level by this time they had gone sufficiently mad and irritated. The younger brother started to grumble and both of them began to quarrel. They continued to climb the flights of steps, quarreling all the way to the 60th floor.
They then realized that they have only 20 levels more to climb and decided to stop quarreling and continue climbing in peace. They silently climbed on and reached their home at long last. Each stood calmly before the door and waited for the other to open the door. And they realized that the key was in their bags which were left on the 20th floor.
This story is a reflection on our life and times. All of us climb the tall building called life, some till all the 80 floors and some less. Many of us climb under the expectations of our companion.
Time to time there are our friends and parents till the 20th floor, then our spouse and our dear ones till the next level of the building. We seldom get to do the things that we really like and love and are under so much pressure and stress so that by the age of 20, we get tired and decide to dump this load. Being free of the stress and pressure, we work enthusiastically and dream ambitious wishes.
By the time we reach 40 years old, we start to lose our vision and dreams. We began to feel unsatisfied and start to complain and criticize. We live life as a misery as we are never satisfied.
Reaching 60, we realize that we have little left for complaining anymore and we began to walk the final episode in peace and calmness. We think that there is nothing left to disappoint us, only to realize that we could not rest in peace because we have an unfulfilled dream, a dream we abandon 60 years ago.
Know your dreams and follow it so that you will not live with regrets.
Help others and thank God.
Accept yourself. Believe in yourself. Like yourself.
Inside each of us are powers so strong, treasures so rich, possibilities so endless, that to command them all to action would change the history of the world.

- The little girl who had eight limbs and was worshipped as a deity starts school.She was born with a unique body – eight limbs and two torsos fused at the hips.
Now Lakshmi Tatma, the Indian toddler whose plight touched the world, has grown up and started school.
Two years after a ground-breaking operation to separate her from a parasitic twin, Lakshmi is a lively and bubbly four-year-old.
She loves playing cricket with her older brother, has a tendency to boss around her newfound friends and remains firmly a daddy’s girl.
‘When I think of the way she was, never in a million years would Lakshmi have been able to go to school or have the life she does today,’ said her mother Poonam, 26.’All the things she’s capable of now were impossible two years ago.’I often try to think what she might be like today if she hadn’t had the operation – she couldn’t even sit up before and now she runs around like other children.’Born in a dusty farming village in India’s poorest state, Lakshmi was revered as a deity and worshipped from birth.Villagers, who believed she was the reincarnation of the Hindu goddess of wealth and fertility, would seek her blessing daily and leave gifts at her bedside.But Lakshmi’s resemblance to her mythological namesake came at a terrible price. She could not walk, stand, or even sit.
The little girl was joined to a headless parasitic twin that had stopped developing in her mother’s womb. Doctors were convinced she could not have survived into adulthood.
Now fully recovered from the 27-hour operation to save her, Lakshmi is almost unrecognisable from her former self.
Beneath the surface, however, lurk a series of medical problems that threaten her future and will require years of surgery.
Six months after the complex operation to remove Lakshmi’s parasitic twin, doctors discovered she had developed scoliosis, or a curvature of the spine.Without a complex operation to correct her spine doctors have warned her back will be forced into increasingly severe deformities as she grows, possibly leaving her disabled.Separately, Lakshmi requires an operation to ‘detether’ her spine after it was discovered she was born with abnormal tissue connecting the spinal cord to her nervous system.In a further operation orthopaedic surgeons must perform a procedure to ‘close her hips’, which are set too far apart and result in an unusual ‘gaited’ walk.Finally, plastic surgeons will need to find a way to create buttocks for Lakshmi, which did not form in the womb because of the unique way she was connected to herparasitic twin. In the same operation surgeons will have to fix related problems with her bladder and intestines.’Lakshmi has come such a long, long way but we’re very scared for the future,’ said her mother Poonam.
Born to impoverished parents in the frequently lawless state of Bihar, in India’s volatile northeast, Lakshmi faced an uncertain future until a wealthy doctor heard of her plight and offered to operate on her for free.Orthopaedic surgeon Dr Sharan Patil, owner of the Sparsh Hospital in Bangalore 2,000 miles south, travelled to Lakshmi’s remote village in 2007 to meet the child and offer her parents the chance of a lifetime.After more than a month planning the separation, Dr Patil’s team attempted the first operation of its kind in the world.Hundreds of journalists camped outside the hospital throughout the 27-hour surgery.Lakshmi’s fame, having spread from her tiny village around the world, prompted Sucheta Kriplani Shiksha Niketan (SKSN), a charitable school looking after disabled children in the desert state of Rajasthan, to offer her parents a place to live and the chance of an education for Lakshmi and her brother Mithilesh.
Dr Bhairoon Singh Bhati, the secretary of SKSN, said: ‘Lakshmi is a special case for us. She’s a very challenging case because you can never tell from her medical history when she might next fall ill.’Her scoliosis is an example of the problems Lakshmi faces because we had no way of knowing she would develop a curvature of the spine.’Similarly, despite all the problems she still faces we have no way of knowing what may crop up in the future.’The biggest difficulty caring for Lakshmi is that she’s a unique case – there’s never been a child like her before so we have nothing to refer back to.’Under Dr Bhati’s guidance Lakshmi has started school, joining her elder brother as the only members of their family to ever receive an education.(SOURCE : www.FROPKI.COM)
