A Thought for Today-693: You love rain...

You say you love rain, but you use an umbrella to walk under it.
You say you love sun, but you seek shelter when it is shining.
You way you love wind, but when it comes you close your windows.

So that is why I am scared when you say you love me – Bob Marley

Anecdotes-3: A DREAM OF DEATH


"I do not know if the sacrifice of Mr. Ganesh Shankar Vidyarthi has gone in vain. His spirit always inspired me. I envy his sacrifice. Is it not shocking that this country hasnot produced another Ganesh Shankar? None after him came to fill the gap. Ganesh Shankar's Ahimsa was perfect Ahimsa. My Ahimsa will also be perfect if I could die similarly peacefully with axe blows on my head. I have always been dreaming of such a death, and I wish to treasure this dream. How noble that death will be,—a daggar attack on me from one side; an axe blow from another; a lathi wound administered from yet another direction and kicks and abuses from all sides and if in the midst of these I could rise to the occasion and remain non-violent and peaceful and could ask others to act and behave likewise, and finally I could die with cheer on my face and smile on my lips, then and then alone my Ahimsa will be perfect and true. I am hankering after such an opportunity  and also wish Congressmen to remain in search of such an opportunity."

— Message sent by Mahatma Gandhi on the occasion of the celebration of the anniversary of the martyrdom of Shri Ganesh Shankar Vidyarthi,

Eyecatchers-192: Smart Digital Address System

“eLoc represents a Smart Digital Address System. The World Bank in 2005 said that Addressing is a real problem. Which is why you see countries going through a new address system every 20 years. In India for example, there are so many ways of addressing… and these are confusing, and nothing has really solved the problem…

When an emergency happens and someone calls up the dial 100 service saying there’s an emergency, send someone to C block 231, 3rd floor etc…. that’s taking too much time. They should just say, ‘send someone to 8GDTYX”. Its much quicker and dis-ambiguous…

We believe that this will be the fundamental base. Just like Aadhaar has been for people, eLoc will be for addresses.” – Rohan Verma, CTO & Executive Director, MapmyIndia

And act too late.

We trust too early
And forgive too late.

And apologize too late.

We give up too early
And restart too late.

We cry too early
And smile too late

Change "EARLY"

or it will be too "LATE"
