Once in a Physics class, the teacher asked the students, “Why do we have brakes in a car?”
Varied answers were received:
“To reduce speed”
“To avoid collision” etc.,
But the best answer was,
“To enable you to drive faster”
Give it a thought.
For a moment assume you have no brakes in your car then how fast will you drive your car?
It is only because of brakes that we can dare to accelerate, dare to go fast and reach destinations we desire.
At various points in life, we find our parents, teachers, mentors and friends questioning our progress, direction or decision. We consider them as irritants or consider such inquiries as “brakes” to our ongoing work.
But remember, it is because of such questions (periodical brakes) that you have managed to reach where you are today. Without brakes, you could have skid, lost direction or met with an unfortunate accident.
I am deeply and sincerely grateful to all my priceless BRAKES .
Appreciate the “brakes” in your life. Without them we wouldn’t be where we are today.

One night Shankaracharya was desperately searching for something on the street outside his small hut.
When his pupil returned from his errand, he saw this and curiously asked the Master, “Aacharya, what are you looking for here on the street at this hour?”
Shankaracharya replied, “I lost my needle, I am looking for it.”
The pupil joined him in the search, but after searching for a while, he asked, “Can you try and recollect where you might have dropped it?”
Shankaracharya said, “Of course, I remember. I dropped it near the bed in the hut.”
The pupil, utterly astonished at the strange answer, said, “Aacharya, you say you lost it inside the house, then why are we looking for it outside?”
Shankaracharya innocently replied, “There is no oil left in the lamp, so it is pitch dark inside the house. Hence I thought of searching for it outside, since there is enough street light here.”
While holding back his laugh, the pupil said, “If you lost your needle inside the house, how could you even expect to find it outside?”
Shankaracharya simply smiled back at the pupil and said, “Isn’t that what we do? We run to far away temples and walk up mountains to search for what we have lost inside ourselves. We are all seeking outside what we have lost inside us. Why? Just because it is pitch dark inside.
Silly, aren’t we?”
“Light the Lamp inside you and find your lost treasure right there in.”
A pregnant mother asked her daughter, “What do you want- A brother or a sister?“
Mother:- Like whom?
Daughter:- Like RAVAN.
Mother:- What the hell are you saying? Are you out of your mind?
Daughter:- Why not Mom? He left all his Royalship & Kingdom, all because his sister was disrespected.
Even after picking up his enemy’s wife, he didn’t ever touch her. Why wouldn’t I want to have a brother like him?
What would I do with a brother like Ram who left his pregnant wife after listening to a “Dhobi” though his wife always stood by his side like a shadow? After giving “Agni Pareeksha” & suffering 14 years of exile.
Mom, you being a wife & sister to someone, until when will you keep on asking for a “RAM” as your son???
Mother was in tears.
Moral:- No one in the world is good or bad. Its just an interpretation about someone. Change YoUr perception.
REMEMBER: Not everyone who goes to a club is characterless and not everyone who goes to a temple is pure, so DON’T JUDGE!!

“We, the people that were born between 1940-1985 are the blessed ones. Our life is a living proof:
👉 While playing and riding bicycles, we never wore helmets.
👉 After school, we played until dusk. We never watched TV.
👉 We played with real friends, not internet friends.
👉 If we ever felt thirsty, we drank tap water not bottled water.
👉 We never got ill although we used to share the same glass of juice with four friends.
👉 We never gained weight although we used to eat a lot of rice everyday.
👉 Nothing happened to our feet despite roaming bare-feet.
👉 our mother and father never used any supplements to keep us healthy.
👉 We used to create our own toys and play with them.
👉 Our parents were not rich. They gave us love, not worldly materials.
👉 We never had cellphones, DVDs, play station, XBox, video games, personal computers, internet chat – but we had real friends.
👉 We visited our friends’ homes uninvited and enjoyed food with them.
👉 unlike your world, we had relatives who lived close by so family time and ties were enjoyed together.
👉 We may have been in black and white photos but you will find colourful memories in those photos.
👉 We are a unique and, the most understanding generation, because we are the last generation who listened to their parents.
Also , the first who have had to listen to their children.
and we are the ones who are still smarter and helping you now to use the technology that never existed while we were your age!!!
