Many times few incidences in life teaches us a lot, it teaches us what any teacher in our school/college days could not make us realize….sometimes they do try to make us realize but we do not realize it so well until we experience it ourselves! Life teaches us the hard & bitter realities. I feel that in life, happiness comes wearing a mask of sadness and sadness comes wearing a mask of happiness! So when we are happy, we should be strong enough to withstand if that happiness is stolen from us all of a sudden in spite of all our sincere and indefinite struggle to keep it with us….and if we are sad, we must be optimistic enough to wait for the coming happiness and should inculcate endurance to bear the torments! Isn’t it?

(Who else can manage to smile with tears in eyes, except a child? Thats the innocence we arrive with in this world. And then???…)

We should never indulge in vain hopes, if such hopes try to creep into our heart & mind, then we must get rid of it & root it out from our heart & mind..or else it makes our heart ache like hell…!!!

I believe in a truly loving heart more than God, I feel God’s presence in that kind of heart…God should be within our hearts…and not some where out there in temples…if I am honest to the God within me, then God will surely be with me in every step of life, whether its a victory or loss..and guyz sometimes “loss” or “defeat” teaches us the best of lessons which “success” or “victory” can’t teach!!!
