Photos That Changed The World!!

Photos That Changed The World 1) Burning Monk by Malcolm Browne,1963

Photos That Changed The World !!

As a protest to the Diem slow and unreliable reforms in Vietnam, the Buddhist monks have resorted to immolation, such as this Mahayana Buddhist monk, Thich Quang Ðuc. Ðuc burned himself alive across the outskirts of Saigon, mainly because of the harshness done by the South Vietnam government to his fellow Buddhist monks.

Ðuc was re-cremated after he burned himself; his heart meanwhile remained in one piece, and because of this he was regarded as a Bodhisattva by the other Buddhist monks and followers. His act of self-immolation increased the pressure on the Diem administration to implement their reform laws in South Vietnam.More monks followed Ðuc’s footsteps as well, and later on in November 1963, Di?m was killed by an army coup. More 19 photos after the jump.

2) Napalm Girl by Nick/Ut Associated Press

Photos That Changed The World !!

Kim Phúc was a resident in the village of Trang Bang, South Vietnam. On June 8, 1972, South Vietnamese planes, in coordination with the American military, dropped a napalm bomb on Trang Bang, which was under attack from and occupied by North Vietnamese forces. She joined a group of civilians and South Vietnamese soldiers fleeing from the Cao Dai Temple, located in the village along the road, to safe South Vietnamese positions. A South Vietnamese pilot mistook the group as a threat and diverted to attack it. Along with other villagers, two of Kim Phúc’s cousins were killed.

Associated Press photographer Nick Út earned a Pulitzer Prize for the photograph. It was also the World Press Photo of the Year 1972. The image of her running naked amidst the chaotic background became one of the most remembered images of the Vietnam War. In an interview many years later, she remembers yelling “Nong qua, nong qua” (“too hot, too hot”) in the picture.

3) Starving Cild Vulture by Kevin Carte, 1994

Photos That Changed The World !!

One photograph that has helped awaken the world about the effects of poverty in Africa is the one above showing a Sudanese child being stalked by a vulture nearby. It is quite obvious that the child was starving to death, while the vulture was patiently waiting for the toddler to die so he can have a good meal.

Nobody knows what happened to the child, who crawled his way to a United Nations food camp. Photographer Kevin Carter won a Pulitzer Prize for this shocking picture, but he eventually committed suicide three months after he took the shot.

4) The Baby Hand by Michael Clancy, 1999

Photos That Changed The World !!

Some of us may be familiar with a picture called “The Baby Hand,” taken on Aug. 19, 1999, by photojournalist Michael Clancy for USA Today, which first published the picture. Clancy was assigned to document a spina bifida operation performed in utero on a 21-week unborn baby named Samuel Armas by Dr. Joseph Bruner, a surgeon at Nashville’s Vanderbuilt University Medical Center.

The picture and its story have been circulated on the internet so often that some question whether they are authentic. They are.Samuel was born on Dec. 2, 1999, weighing 5 pounds 11 ounces-four weeks premature. By all indications, he appeared healthy. Today, he’s a “chattering, brown-eyed 3½-year-old.”

6) Tsuname Floating Bodies, 2004

The Boxing Day Tsunami that struck Thailand in 2004 caused approximately 350,000 deaths and many more injuries.

7) The Falling Man, 2001

8) Man Walks On Moon by NASA, 1969

Photos That Changed The World !!

In one of the most famous photographs of the 20th Century, Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin walks on the surface of the moon near the leg of the lunar module Eagle. Apollo 11 Commander Neil Armstrong took this photograph with a 70mm lunar surface camera. Armstrong and Aldrin explored the Sea of Tranquility for two and a half hours while crewmate Michael Collins orbited above in the command module Columbia.

As the world remembers the thrilling Apollo 11 mission 35 years later, NASA’s newVision calls for a return to the moon, followed by journeys of discovery to Mars and beyond.

9) Nagasaki Mushroom Cloud, 1945

Photos That Changed The World !!

This is the picture of the “mushroom cloud” showing the enormous quantity of energy. The first atomic bomb was released on August 6 in Hiroshima (Japan) and killed about 80,000 people. On August 9 another bomb was released above Nagasaki. The effects of the second bomb were even more devastating – 150,000 people were killed or injured. But the powerful wind, the extremely high temperature and radiation caused enormous long term damage.

10) Execution of Viet Congby Eddie Adams, 1968

Photos That Changed The World !!

This picture was shot by Eddie Adams who won the Pulitzer prize with it. The picture shows Nguyen Ngoc Loan, South Vietnam’s national police chief executing a prisoner who was said to be a Viet Cong captain. Once again the public opinion was turned against the war.

11) First Black Student by Douglas Martin, 1958

Photos That Changed The World !!

World Press Photo of the Year: 1957 Douglas Martin, USA, The Associated Press. Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, 4 September 1957. Dorothy Counts, one of the first black students to enter the newly desegregated Harry Harding High School. About the image Reporters and photographers bore witness and recorded the violence that erupted when Dorothy Counts showed up for her first day at an all-white school. People threw rocks and screamed “Go back where you came from”. They got their way – after a string of abuses, Dorothy’s family withdrew her from the school after only four days.

12) Loch Ness Monster by Ian Wetherell, 1934

13) Lunchtime atop a Skyscraper by Charles C. Ebbets, 1932

Photos That Changed The World !!

14) Earthrise by William Anders, 1968

Photos That Changed The World !!

The late adventure photographer Galen Rowell called it “the most influential environmental photograph ever taken.” Captured on Christmas Eve, 1968, near the end of one of the most tumultuous years the U.S. had ever known, the Earthrise photograph inspired contemplation of our fragile existence and our place in the cosmos. For years, Frank Borman and Bill Anders of the Apollo 8 mission each thought that he was the one who took the picture. An investigation of two rolls of film seemed to prove Borman had taken an earlier, black-and-white frame, and the iconic color photograph, which later graced a U.S. postage stamp and several book covers, was by Anders.

15) The First Photograph by Joseph Nicephore Niepce, 1826

Photos That Changed The World !!

Known as the World’s First Photograph but actually this is the earliest surviving photograph, c. 1826. It required an eight-hour exposure, which resulted in sunlight on both sides of the buildings.

It represents the view of the courtyard of Niépce’s house at Gras, France, taken from the window of his workroom. On the left side of the image is the pigeon-house (an upper loft in the Niépce family house), to the right of it is a pear-tree with a patch of sky showing through an opening in the branches. In the center of the image is the slanting roof of the barn; the long building behind it is the bake house, with chimney. On the right side of the image is another wing of the house.

16) 9/11 Attacks

Photos That Changed The World !!

In the morning September 11, 2001, two hijacked passenger jets crashed into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City. This was no accident, but rather a series of attacks done by suicide bombers engaged with the Al-Qaeda terrorist group.

The attacks killed all the passengers on board the hijacked planes, and took away 2,974 innocent lives at the World Trade Center. More than 90 countries lost citizens in the attack, and the stock market was closed for a week. In response to the attacks, the United States government declared a War on Terror, while many other nations strengthened their law enforcement powers to fight terrorism. However, the suicide attacks done by the Al Qaeda terrorists have forever marked a sense of fear not just in America, but in the whole world.

19) First Pic on the Internet, 1992

Photos That Changed The World !!

Back in 1992, after their show at the CERN Hardronic Festival, my colleague Tim Berners-Lee asked me for a few scanned photos of “the CERN girls” to publish them on some sort of information system he had just invented, called the “World Wide Web”. I had only a vague idea of what that was, but I scanned some photos on my Mac and FTPed them to Tim’s now famous “info.cern.ch”. How was I to know that I was passing an historical milestone, as the one above was the first picture ever to be clicked on in a web browser!”

20) Starving Boy and Missionary by Mike Wells, 1980

Photos That Changed The World !!

World Press Photo of the Year: 1980 Mike Wells, United Kingdom. Karamoja district, Uganda, April 1980. Starving boy and a missionary. About the image Wells felt indignant that the same publication that sat on his picture for five months without publishing it, while people were dying, entered it into a competition. He was embarrassed to win as he never entered the competition himself, and was against winning prizes with pictures of people starving to death.

Maybe. . we were supposed to meet the
wrong people before meeting the right
one so that, when we finally meet the
right person, we will know how to be
grateful for that gift.

Maybe... Silent Retrospective Thoughts

Maybe . . . it is true that we don’t
know what we have until we lose it,
but it is also true that we don’t know
what we have been missing until it
arrives.

Maybe... Silent Retrospective Thoughts

Maybe . . . the brightest future will
always be based on a forgotten past;
after all, you can’t go on
successfully in life until you let go
of your past mistakes, failures and
heartaches.

Maybe... Silent Retrospective Thoughts

Maybe . . you should hope for enough
happiness to make you sweet, enough
trials to make you strong, enough
sorrow to keep you human, and enough
hope to make you happy.

Maybe... Silent Retrospective Thoughts

Maybe . . . the happiest of people
don’t necessarily have the best of
everything; they just make the most of
everything that comes along their way.

Maybe . . . the best kind of friend is
the kind you can sit on a porch and
swing with, never say a word, and then
walk away feeling like it was the best
conversation you’ve ever had.

Maybe . . . happiness waits for all
those who cry, all those who hurt, all
those who have searched, and all those
who have tried, for only they can
appreciate the importance of ll the

May be . . you should do something nice
for someone every single day, even if
it is simply to leave them alone.

Maybe... Silent Retrospective Thoughts

Maybe . .. . there are moments in life
when you miss someone — a parent, a
spouse, a friend, a child — so much
that you just want to pick them from
your dreams and hug them for real, so
that once they are around you
appreciate them more.

Maybe … giving someone all your love
is never an assurance that they will
love you back. Don’t expect love in
return; just wait for it to grow in
their heart; but, if it doesn’t, be
content that it grew in yours.

Maybe . . . you should dream what you
want to dream; go where you want to
go, be what you want to be, because
you have only one life and one chance
to do all the things you dream of, and
want to do.

A story for everyone… "Don’t put the key to your happiness in someone else…

A story by a girl.

A story for everyone...

“When I was a little girl, my mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner

every now and then. And I remember one night in particular when she had made

breakfast after a long, hard day at work. On that evening so long ago, my

mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage, and extremely burned toast in front of

my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed! Yet all my dad did was

reach for his toast, smile at my mom, and ask me how my day was at school. I

don’t remember what I told him that night, but I do remember Watching him

smear butter and jelly on that toast and eat every bite!

When I got Up from the table that evening, I remember hearing my mom

apologize to my dad For burning the toast. And I’ll never forget what he

said: ‘Baby, I love burned toast.’

Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night and I asked him if He

really liked his toast burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said, ‘Debbie,

your Momma put in a hard day at work today and she’s real tired. And

besides-a little burnt toast never hurt anyone!’ You know, life is full of

imperfect things…..and imperfect people. I’m not the best housekeeper or

cook.

What I’ve learned over the years is that learning to accept each other’s

faults – and choosing to celebrate each other’s differences – is the one of

the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting

relationship.

And that’s my prayer for you today. That you will learn to take the good,

the bad, and the ugly parts of your life and lay them at the feet of GOD.

Because in the end, He’s the only One who will be able to give you a

relationship where burnt toast isn’t a deal-breaker! We could extend this to

any relationship in fact – as understanding is the base of any

relationship, be it a husband-wife or parent-child or friendship!! “

Don’t miss even a single word…
Too good An atheist Professor of philosophy speaks to his class on the problem science has with God, The Almighty. He asks one of his new Students to stand and…..

Prof: So you believe in God?
Student: Absolutely, sir.
Prof : Is God good?
Student: Sure.
Prof: Is God all-powerful?
Student : Yes.
Prof: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to God to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But God didn’t. How is this God good then? Hmm?
(Student is silent.)
Prof: You can’t answer, can you? Let’s start again, young fella. Is God good? Student: Yes. Prof: Is Satan good? Student : No. Prof: Where does Satan come from? Student: From…God…. Prof: That’s right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?
Student: Yes.
Prof: Evil is everywhere, isn’t it? And God did make everything. Correct?
Student: Yes.
Prof: So who created evil?
(Student does not answer.)
Prof: Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don’t they? Student: Yes, sir. Prof: So, who created them?
(Student has no answer.)
Prof: Science says you have 5 senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son…Have you ever seen God?
Student: No, sir.
Prof: Tell us if you have ever heard your God?
Student: No, sir.
Prof: Have you ever felt your God, tasted your God, smelt your God? Have you ever had any sensory perception of God for that matter?
Student: No, sir. I’m afraid I haven’t.
Prof: Yet you still believe in Him?
Student: Yes.
Prof: According to empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, science says your GOD doesn’t exist. What do you say to that, son?
Student: Nothing. I only have my faith.
Prof: Yes. Faith. And that is the problem science has.
Student: Professor, is there such a thing as heat?
Prof: Yes.
Student: And is there such a thing as cold?
Prof: Yes.
Student: No sir. There isn’t.
(The lecture theatre becomes very quiet with this turn of events.)
Student : Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don’t have anything called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat, but we can’t go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold . Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat . We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy . Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it .
(There is pin-drop silence in the lecture theatre.)
Student: What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?
Prof: Yes. What is night if there isn’t darkness?
Student : You’re wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light….But if you have no light constantly, you have nothing and it’s called darkness, isn’t it? In reality, darkness isn’t. If it were you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn’t you?
Prof: So what is the point you are making, young man?
Student: Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.
Prof: Flawed? Can you explain how?
Student: Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue there is life and then there is death, a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, science can’t even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one.To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor. Do you teach your Students that they evolved from a monkey?
Prof: If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course, I do.
Student: Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?
(The Professor shakes his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument is going.) Student: Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher? (The class is in uproar.)
Student: Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor’s brain? (The class breaks out into laughter.) Student : Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor’s brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir? (The room is silent. The Professor stares at the Student, his face unfathomable.)
Prof: I guess you’ll have to take them on faith, son. Student: That is it sir…. The link between man & god is FAITH . That is all that keeps things moving & alive.

NB: I believe you have enjoyed the conversation…and if so…you’ll probably want your friends/colleagues to enjoy the same…won’t you?…. this is a true story, and the Student was none other than

A P J ABDUL KALAM…the former President of India.

50 Rules To Being A Gentleman

‘Be Nothing Less Than The Best’

Written by KING Magazine

For dudes who split bills on fast-food dates, KING offers a template for sophistication. Relax and take notes.

The Gentlemen Panel: Fonzworth Bentley, Pacino Bing, John Delgado, Gerrell Gaddis, Damon Gales, Claveria “JoJo” Gumersindo, Rashaun Hall, Sheldon Hall, Grant Hill, Chris Mathis, Adam Matthews, Zach McCall, Mark Rooney, Jalen Rose, Anslem Samuel, Chiun-Kai Shih, Musiq Soulchild, Jamal Sullivan, Q-Tip, Greg Watkins, Pat Wilcox

50. A warm iron and a can of spray starch can do wonders. Invest in them even if you don’t wear slacks and button-ups regularly.

49. “If you buy one pair of shoes and one suit per year, you’ll have a nice collection soon enough. It’s an investment. Also, know your measurements and sizes, because you might find a woman who wants to hook you up and get a suit made.”-Chris Mathis, 36, barber

48. Wearing a fitted hat on your commute to work with your business suit or with just pants and a dress shirt isn’t a good look.

47. “Tone down the bagginess a bit without wandering into nut-hugger territory. Showing your ass and boxers is not appealing in any setting.”-Anslem Samuel, 31, magazine editor

46. Find a good tailor.

45. T-shirts should fall just below your waist, and the seam of the shoulder should be right on your shoulder.

44. Wear a belt. It’s called underwear for a reason.

43. Don’t try to outdress a woman. She should be the center of attention and should not feel that she’s underdressed.

42. “The world is bigger than your hood and the places your favorite rappers represent. Try to travel to a place where your cell phone won’t work. That’s when you know you’ve actually gone somewhere. If you can’t afford to put your passport on pivot, try reading a book or travel guide about the place you’d like to visit.”-A. Samuel

41. Barnes & Noble should be your best friend.

40. “[As far as books], start with the classics: Catcher in the Rye, The Count of Monte Cristo, The Odyssey, Crime and Punishment.”-Q-Tip, 38, rapper/producer/actor

39. If reading books the size of War & Peace seems daunting, peruse different types of magazines-ones covering art, architecture, design or photography.

38. Try not to go straight to the sports section of the newspaper.

37. Watch the news, preferably more than one channel. Suggestions: BBC, MSNBC, CNN and, yes, even FOX News.

36. Being open-minded and aware of the world around you shows class and sophistication, but avoid seeming pretentious by being modest instead of showing off what you know.

35. “There will come a time when you outgrow the dudes you grew up with. Have a beer with them once in a while, but it’s OK to move on and be friendly with new people.”-Adam Matthews, 36, journalist

34. Go easy on the slang, especially among those who are already judging you based on race and age.

33. Don’t just talk the talk.

32. Look people in the eyes when you greet them and shake their hand.

31. “Take criticism with an open mind. You can improve from listening to superiors and by changing your actions to serve them. Don’t mess with the pack order-it’s there for a reason.”-A. Matthews

30. Be on time to meetings-early if you can.

29. In meetings, don’t hold conversations at the same time someone else is speaking. Let the person finish his point before giving yours.

28. “Memphis Bleek had one good line: ‘The strong move quiet, the weak start riots.’ Don’t be the guy who always needs attention on him or starts problems over small stuff.”-Mark Rooney, 31, salesman

27. Don’t talk down to coworkers, including subordinates. You may be above them in rank, but as a human being, you’re on a level playing field.

26. “Look for the people who will make your job easier. You can’t do everything yourself, so you’re going to need help. These people will be pivotal to your success. And always thank them and show your appreciation when they come through for you.”-Claveria “JoJo” Gumersindo, 36, quality management

25. Don’t be afraid to share the spotlight in your workplace. Rather than being self-centered, work together with somebody of equal ambition. You don’t always have to be in the front seat-the backseat is cool.

24. Don’t think because someone has money, he’s a good businessman; there are people with no money who are better.

23. “You don’t want to do anything and everything just for a buck. I’ve walked away from deals a number of times that I think were good deals, but I didn’t think they were good people.”-Grant Hill, 35, Phoenix Suns small forward

22. Learn more about food and where to eat it cheaply. Most cities have great ethnic food; you just have to go to a specific neighborhood to get it.

21. If you initiate a dinner date or meeting, then you should expect to pay. That works both ways.

20. At a restaurant, let women order food first, and stand up when a woman leaves the table.

19. Avoid unnecessary use of expletives in public, especially in the presence of a woman you’re trying to impress.

18. Unless your Fight Club membership is in danger of being revoked, walk away from altercations.

17. Always put your napkin in your lap at dinner. Stuffing it in your shirt is grounds for getting slapped.

16. Caveman behavior at the dinner table isn’t good. Use utensils, avoid chewing with your mouth open and don’t leave a messy plate.

15. When eating out, always tip more than 20 percent. Waiters live off of customers’ kindness. And you don’t want to make other people at your table reach into their pocket to cover your cheapness.

14. “Treat older women as if they were your own mother.”-C. Mathis

13. Always have a woman walk on the inside of the sidewalk and on the side of parked cars in a parking lot, basically using your body as a barrier from harm.

12. Sometimes the best movies are in the independent market. Documentaries are great educational sources, too.

11. If you’re trying to have a relationship, let the woman know. If you’re not, and you’re just trying to hit, let them know that, too.

10. Brush your teeth, gargle or have a breath mint before getting up close and personal.

9. If the opportunity presents itself on the first night, don’t pull a condom out of your wallet. She’ll get the impression that you’re premeditated and will be turned off.

8. Even if you’re having a one-night stand with a woman, be respectful. Jay-Z might brag about kicking women out five minutes after having sex with them, but he’s not having sex with your date-you are. Casual sex needn’t be disrespectful. In fact, it’s more fun when its not.

7. “Don’t fall asleep when you’re done. Just because you got yours doesn’t mean the night is over.”-JoJo

6. “If you’re not into oral, you better get into it. Not with every woman, of course, but someone you’re serious with.”-C. Mathis

5. “If you want her to be your devil, treat her like an angel.”-Gerrell Gaddis, 32, songwriter

4. Don’t ask about the last guy she was with; as in, “Was I better than he was?” Being competitive is a young man’s game.

3. Never forget to introduce your woman as your girlfriend, spouse or otherwise to people when you’re out at functions together.

2. Avoid public fights with your woman. Keep things private to let her know there’s an exclusive world that you and her share.

1. “Young guys should pump their brakes. Don’t have kids until you’re 30, and look at her family and background to know what you’re getting into.”-C. Mathis

Where there is love

Where there is love, the heart is light
where there is love, the day is bright

Where there is love, there is laughter
as that of children’s
in the joy of being together

Where there is love, there is a song
to right things that
have gone wrong

Where there is love, there’s always a smile
to get you through a day
which makes all things worthwhile

Where there is love, there is a quiet peace
a tranquil place
where turmoil’s cease

Where there is love, the heart take wingless flight
love changes the darkness
into the brightest light

Where there is love, friendship grows
a forever unity
of two loving souls.

Deep ….. Deep inside my heart.

You dont know where you stay
Wish I would have shown you
But I fear it will stop
If I try to rip it apart
I don’t know when you sneaked in
When I found you I was happy n dancin
Wish those moments last in
Which is impossible as it may seem

If you be there where you are
I will try to reach out for the stars
For you I will pull out couple
And put them in your eyes to twinkle

And now that you have decided,before you go
Can you please tell me why it aches so bad?
Is that because you stay
Deep………deep inside my heart.
My Dear

Create your own life and then go out and live it!

Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there. They serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or help figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be; may be your roommate, neighbor, professor, long lost friend, lover or even a complete stranger, when you lock eyes with theirs, you know that very moment that they will affect your life in some profound way.
Sometimes things happen to you and at the time they may seem horrible, painful and unfair, but in reflection you realize that without overcoming those obstacles you would have never realized your potential, strength, willpower or heart.
Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good or bad luck. Dard Khushi Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, if they be events, illnesses or relationships, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere. Safe and comfortable, but dull and utterly pointless.The people you meet who affect your life and the successes and downfalls you experience — they are the ones who create who you are. Even the bad experiences can be learned from … Those lessons are the hardest and probably the most important ones.If someone hurts you, betrays you or breaks your heart, forgive them, for they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious about to whom you open your heart. If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because they are teaching you to love and opening your heart and eyes to things you would have never seen or felt without them. Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take from it everything that you possibly can, for you may never be able to experience it again.Talk to people you have never talked to before, and actually listen. Let yourself fall in love. Break free and set your sights high. Hold your head up because you have every right to.
Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don’t believe in yourself, no one else will believe in you either.

You can make of your life anything you wish.

Create your own life and then go out and live it!

It was bliss to lose myself

A thousand words rose to my lips but fell silent,
A million emotions churned out from my heart
Outnumbering the stars in the night sky,
In that silence tears rolled down my cheeks

To find the gentle palm of yours holding mine.

The warmth of your hand gave my soul wings to fly

from the year-long separation that we have had,
Your very presence cleared all the doubts
just as the sun drives away the clouds.
It was bliss to lose myself

in the infinite love of your perfect eyes,

It was heaven to melt awayin the honey dew smile of yours,

which said you will never leave me!

Khwaish aisi karo ki


Khwaish aisi karo ki aasman tak ja sako,
Dua aisi karo ki khuda ko pa sako,
Yu toh jeene k liye pal bahut kam hai,
Jiyo aise k har pal me zindagi pa sako.

DONT EVER SAY GOODBYE


DARD JITNA SAHA JAYE UTNA HI SEHNA

ONE DAY GOD ASK ME “HOW LONG DO U NEED UR FRIEND ALONG WITH U?”I JUST CRIED & DROPPED A TEAR INTO AN OCEAN AND TOLD ‘UNTIL U FIND THIS ” !!

दोस्ती नाम नहीं सिर्फ़ दोस्तों के साथ रहने का..

दोस्ती नाम नहीं सिर्फ़ दोस्तों के साथ रहने का..
बल्कि दोस्त ही जिन्दगी बन जाते हैं, दोस्ती में..
जरुरत नहीं पडती, दोस्त की तस्वीर की.
देखो जो आईना तो दोस्त नज़र आते हैं, दोस्ती में..
यह तो बहाना है कि मिल नहीं पाये दोस्तों से आज..
दिल पे हाथ रखते ही एहसास उनके हो जाते हैं,
दोस्ती में..नाम की तो जरूरत हई नहीं पडती इस रिश्ते मे कभी..
पूछे नाम अपना ओर, दोस्तॊं का बताते हैं, दोस्ती में..
कौन कहता है कि दोस्त हो सकते हैं जुदा कभी..
दूर रह्कर भी दोस्त, बिल्कुल करीब नज़र आते हैं,
दोस्ती में..सिर्फ़ भ्रम हे कि दोस्त होते है अलग-अलग..
दर्द हो इनको और, आंसू उनके आते हैं ,
दोस्ती में..माना इश्क है खुदा, प्यार करने वालों के लिये
“अभी”पर हम तो अपना सिर झुकाते हैं,
दोस्ती में..और एक ही दवा है गम की दुनिया में क्योंकि..
भूल के सारे गम, दोस्तों के साथ मुस्कुराते हैं, दोस्ती में

To all the guys who read this


Hi Friends,

To all the guys who read this..please read fully and understand..To all the girls who read this.. An excellent forward please read fully….. and forward to the boys you know. This is a beautiful article: The woman in your life…very well expressed…
Tomorrow you may get a working woman, butyou should marry her with these facts as well.
Here is a girl, who is as much educated as you are; Who is earning almost as much as you do;
One, who has dreams and aspirations just as you have because she is as human as you are;
One, who has never entered the kitchen in her life just like you or your Sister haven’t, as she was busy in studies and competing in a system that gives no special concession to girls for their culinary achievements
One, who has lived and loved her parents & brothers & sisters, almost as much as you do for 20-25 years of her life;
One, who has bravely agreed to leave behind all that, her home, people who love her, to adopt your home, your family, your ways and even your family ,name
One, who is somehow expected to be a master-chef from day #1, while you sleep oblivious to her predicament in her new circumstances, environment and that kitchen
One, who is expected to make the tea, first thing in the morning and cook food at the end of the day, even if she is as tired as you are, maybe more, and yet never ever expected to complain; to be a servant, a cook, a mother, a wife, even if she doesn’t want to; and is learning just like you are as to what you want from her; and is clumsy and sloppy at times and knows that you won’t like it if she is too demanding, or if she learns faster than you;
One, who has her own set of friends, and that includes boys and even men at her workplace too, those, who she knows from school days and yet is willing to put all that on the back-burners to avoid your irrational jealousy, unnecessary competition and your inherent insecurities;
Yes, she can drink and dance just as well as you can, but won’t, simply Because you won’t like it, even though you say otherwise
One, who can be late from work once in a while whendeadlines, just like yours, are to be met;
One, who is doing her level best and wants to make this most important, relationship in her entire life a grand success, if you just help her some and trust her;
One, who just wants one thing from you, as you are the only one she knows in your entire house – your unstinted support, your sensitivities and most importantly – your understanding, or love, if you may call it.
But not many guys understand this……
Please appreciate “HER”

If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it.


Our minds are as different as our faces: we are all traveling to one destination; –happiness; but few are going by the same road.Charles Caleb Colton

Our minds are as different as our faces: we are all traveling to one destination; –happiness; but few are going by the same road.Charles Caleb Colton

Try to be happy in this present moment, and put not off being so to a time to come,—as though that time should be of another make from this which has already come and is ours.

There is only one person who could ever make you happy, and that person is you.

The happiness of life is made up of minute fractions—the little soon-forgotten charities of a kiss, a smile, a kind look, a heartfelt compliment in the disguise of a playful raillery, and the countless other infinitessimals of pleasurable thought and genial feeling.

Who is the happiest of men? He who values the merits of others, and in their pleasure takes joy, even as though ’twere his own.

Action may not always bring happiness;but there is no happiness without action.

KOI PYAR KEHTE HAI
KOI MOHABBAT KEHTE HAI,
KUCH LOG BANDAGI BHI KEHTE HAI,
MAGAR JIN SE HUM DOSTI KARTE HAI,
UNHE HUM APNI ZINDAGI KEHTE HAI.
