I Fear, Do You?

Hey Guys!!! I would like to speak about Fear. You know, fear of darkness, thunderstorms, stray dogs, etc...etc... I had all these and much more, I was not aware of it until one fine morning, a very old priest of my father's acquaintance took my pulse and said, "Mr. Mathew, your daughter is a frightened kid. It would be advisable, if you could give her juice of Naruneendi ( Hemidesmus indicus) . It is actually an ayurvedic medicine, which had no taste but some taste, I cannot explain the flavour of the taste. I had consumed two bottles, before returning to the boarding school. As time passed, I was wondering, did the medicine really work? And I would say, not really. I had all the fear which I had before but there was one difference, I was aware of it. When the fear raises its head in me, I would know and analyze it, "with fear, will the problem in front of me get solved?" "No" "Then what is the point in fearing?, just face the problem and

Not Faithful? Be Faithful

You know, 90% cases, reported  for marriage break ups is Faithlessness. Like cheating on your spouse, having an affair with another person, etc....etc.... Why does it happen? Well, to know that we will have to check on the basic fact about oneself. It is all connected with the person Me (in your case, its You) What is faith? Its the belief of what one have of oneself, of God or of others. It is usually a positive belief, only good things. And it usually filled within the heart & mind so tightly that there would not be an iota of doubt. Now, when we have a small speck of doubt in our belief, it becomes the truth and we find ourselves facing this doubt, just like looking in a mirror. I will give an example, you have been invited for a big party and you want to look the very best, but, as the days get closer, you get to get tensed, thinking of all the possible mishaps like a small pimple on the face or a car break down or whatever usual fears and lo behold!!! exactly

Save 10 and Make 100? Forget it!!!!

Hey Guys!!!! I hope you are enjoying life. Well, I am. What is your criteria of enjoying life? To have more money than you can spend? or To have good Health? or To visit places? or To be Happy always? What is happiness? Oh!!! its complicated to answer this because its a mix of all for some, but for others, it would be specifically some things which, one do not have. It is natural. I am writing this because, I would like to see everyone happy all the time in their life.  What is Life's happiness? Its not very easy to define life's happiness. But I can simplify it by an Egg Omelette . The Preparation :- Break an egg into a bowl.  Whisk it Add salt & whisk again Pour it on a hot frying pan greased with oil  Sprinkle some pepper powder when half cooked Cook it until done And the end result - a perfect Omelette. If you love omelette, then it will be a beauty to the eyes, flavour to the nose, perfect taste to your tongue and softnes

Shut Up and Row the Boat Until 20

Hey Guys!!!! How are you? Today, I would like to talk about kids from the perspective of a mother or let me say parents. I met a mother who was taken to the police station because she asked her daughter to clean her room. Just Imagine!!!!!! In India, there is one famous saying coming out from 99% of the elders "Children, we too once rowed the same boat." Yes, its really true, the meaning of the saying is, every parent was once a child. They know each and every stage of life, the difficulties passed, the joys of life, the decisions made, mistakes faced, etc...etc.... and reached the prime of life - now. So, they can say it without doubt, they have indeed rowed the boat. But, have you wondered, why these guys including me, get agitated, when the kids make mistakes? I will say a story, which happened in my life, when I was young, just for an example and the difference between a child and a parent. Years back we had a tape recorder, but during those times,

No Promises Please!!!!

Dear Guys!!! Today, I do not know whether I should be sad or glad. My thoughts flew to my dad, who was one of my best friends. Though it has been 27 years since he passed away, there are somethings which I learned from his life experience and the one that really moulded is me his death. My mother cried from the moment the doctor gave the verdict, he has passed away. She cried for months, followed by years. Slowly, I came to know, that my dad could not fulfill 90% of his promises he made in his ife, the 10% he fulfilled was for me and it was 100% of his promises he made to me. Then and there, I decided never make promises, which cannot be fulfilled, yes, I understand, that its simply words. But behind those words are attached the hopes and expectations of not one, but many persons, remember, each action always ensues a chain reaction. I have always wondered, what my dad would have thought when he became a soul. Well, I cannot be a judge of his character, but if I were i
