You are the best

A guru is one who is regarded as having great knowledge, wisdom, and authority in a certain area, and who uses it to guide others.
There is no knowledge without a guru (teacher).

The Guru told a story to the student crowd in the morning.  Here it goes,

A little girl and her father were crossing a bridge.
The father was kind of scared so he asked his little daughter:
“Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don’t fall into the river.” The little girl said:
“No, Dad. You hold my hand.”
“What’s the difference?” Asked the puzzled father.
“There’s a big difference,” replied the little girl.
“If I hold your hand and something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go. But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens, you will never let my hand go.”
In any relationship, the essence of trust is not in its bind, but in its bond. So hold the hand of the person whom you love rather than expecting them to hold yours..
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” said the guru.
“true, be yourself in thinking and action, this story tells more than that Guru”

“True my child, Live this Life in cheer”

You are the best“, Hey how is the caption. “You are the best”.. deepu repeated to me loudly.  I just imagine that we will be having our names here in these signboards. He confirmed his agreement by pointing his fingers at the brightest Board.

The bus went past a Huge Bill board, it showed Philips. Their motto ,”sense and simplicity” struck my imagination.  The powerful lights made the board appear like a white wave of moving fireflies.

I removed the ear phones of my sony ericsson, put off my walkman to talk to him and open my heart to my close friend.  The music was “You are the best”  a song by Joe Esposito, 1984 montage song for the ‘The Karate Kid’.

One may want to know what your best quality is? Want to know what makes people like you? “What is your best quality?
Even a country is known by the best products it has.

….I sat in the last row seat of the K S R T C bus, journey to EKM. “One year back you never imagine sitting here, you bet break your back before you reach Home”… I told deepu.  “Thanks to the 4 Lane and smooth tarred roads”, He said. .. I saw my neighbour was taking some readings from his altimeter. He was a Telecom Engineer ….

“Hi, are bhai aap kya kar rahe ho?”, i asked him in hindi. He was a student from Jabalpur, who worked in Cochin for his intern at the Idea Telecommunications.

“Yaar, why is the 3G device only gives me a speed of max 200 Kbps in Cochin city area”, i asked him after making sure that he is an expert in the mobile scenario.

Sometimes it shows only 3kbps, ” Ridiculous” we  laughed at the Infra structure in India. “People are fools, we pay more than any developed country for all these stupid services..”
“But we are not aware of our needs as customers”
“I bought the docomo device,  they even gave me a early bird offer, a Reebok watch, I dont know how they make profit out  of such a deal”

“yes sir, but realise that America has already launched 6 G, and we are not even near 3 G, our people expect others to buy good things(3g mobiles) and test them first, we never go ahead ourselves ………  so we are always late ………..”, he said.

There was a time when friends, were having a good influence on each other.  I was influenced by this stranger friendly man working in a Mobile company.  Strange feeling in my heart, reverted me to a scene.

“You are the best”, thats what every one loves to hear from other.

Even a dog would like to be pampered and this caption will make him happy…. I saw a limping dog on the pavement of a Huge silk saree showroom, at the junction.  He was the only creature that was bad(Looks matter to most), of course  there were a few beggars squatting nearby, but bit away from the bright light. We went there to see a matching shirt for a dark maroon silk saree.

“To do business, and an enterprise One must know the meaning of Loss”,provi told me.

“Money is the biggest parameter of loss”
“Yeah, loss is an important part of a business, if you want to be successful then first you must learn the meaning of Loss”, he  looked at the road, there were pot holes on the main road which made the vehicles slow down.

“you are the best”, raising his eyes to look at the clear blue sky.  There is something beautiful and meaningful in this life…. We become the best once we learn those meanings ……


Lost mobile and an FIR

How do you feel after having lost your mobile phone?

You feel lost and feel like listening to a old sad song which touches your heart.

Here is one draft to file a FIR.

I am Sanjith Jockey , a resident of Cochin . My mobile has been lost by theft while I was travelling in a bus from Vytilla to Kadavantara(Ernakulam). I had kept my mobile in my pocket and later i found that some one has pick pocketed me. When i got down the bus i found that  my mobile was stolen.  My Mobile is ‘Samsung B3410 Corby Plus’ IMEI number – 320890413369533 purchased in ‘Univercell’ .M.G. road , Cochin . Invoice number – R M F/1256. Policy number – 487905/48/2010/Univercell . I have already complained the police and also sent the courier with the required details .
I hereby request you to approve the insurance and do the needful. Mail me at – on this regards

The next thing in mind is immediately for blocking of sim,  you have to write another letter for that.

But by the time you are about to get the claimed insurance amount. you are having a record number of visits to the Police station, Mobile Store, Friends and Local Bus stations.

Once you do that, that s for sure,  you never imagine losing a mobile again.

Strong fighting Spirit of Japanese

At the airport,  my friend felt the shocks of the great earth quake that shook northern japan.
yesterday one of them called me. they are afraid of the tap waters in their apartment. “we want to return to our natives”
I got an email stating that the Nuclear radiations have become wide spread and have taken enormous proportions so that they may even harm all Asian countries.
Initially i believed as did the million other readers, but slowly i researched and found the news being hoax.
One of my japanese friends Makoto san  was online today in the day time when i read about Nuclear radiation leakage. He said that it is a problem in the range of 30 Kms from the nuclear site.

He said Japan, like all countries, had arrangements in place for any radiation incident.  According to leading scientists around the world, japan has got one of the most sophisticated technologies fight any low down(melt down).

We are shocked and saddened to see the impact of the earthquake and tsunami inJapan and our thoughts are with all those affected……….
News item ..
“We have already begun cremations, but we can only handle 18 bodies a day. We are overwhelmed and are asking other cites to help us deal with bodies,” said a crematorium spokesperson. 

In the Iwate prefecture, a government official said that authorities are receiving just 10% of the food and other supplies they need. Body bags and coffins are running so short that the government may turn to foreign funeral homes for help, he said.

But Japanese People have the fighting spirit which will not die until last ..

I read a story of an Old survivor after 4 days in the debris. It showed me one thing that no matter what happened, like the 600,000 Japanese who find themselves suddenly homeless, there spirit will never dampen.
