6 Important Life Lessons

I just came across a very interesting piece of writing, worth sharing with ideas8bottom readers! Here are the 6 Important Life Lessons that one must remember:

A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next door neighbor. Before she says a word, Bob says, “I’ll give you $800 to drop that towel.” After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob.

The Two Point War between Anna Hazare and the Govt.

'Anna refuses to bend, Govt refuses to bend', says the latest headline on HT, as the 71 years old, veteran social activist enters into fourth day of his fast-unto death. 

Anna is getting support from all corners of the country. People from all walks of life, whether they are saints, retired judges, social activists, news media channels, bloggers, actors, other intelligentsia, and regular public are shouting their support for the new age mahatma. One of my friends says that, he is Mahatma Gandhi 2.0, because his personality is clean like Mahatma Gandhi, his cause is a noble one, he is getting support from everyone, and he is using the same method of protest that Gandhi used during India's freedom struggle against British Raj...

Bharat Ratna Award for Sachin??

Nothing to get surprised by the title of this post, because Sachin is already a bharat ratna for billions of Indians. But I believe, awarding Sachin the Bharat Ratna award right now doesn't make sense...!

Against the Principles of Gandhi...

A number of books have been written on Mahatma Gandhi, but the most recent one by Joseph Lelyveld has allegedly given some titillating insights into Mahatma's sexual preferences. People have started demanding a formal (by law) ban on the book, and criminal proceedings on the writer of the book. This post is about to point-out some serious moral dangers behind such an action...

I ask the reader; 'Are we really talking about protecting image of someone who himself had been against any such protection his entire life...?'

But this post in not about how splendid Team India played, but to throw some light on other very important issues that have gone to darkness because of the shadow of this mammoth win! These issues have one thing in common: they affect the common man of this country...
