Do not undermine your worth by
Comparing yourself with others.
It is because we are different
That each of us is special.
Do not set your goals by what
Other people deem important.
Only you know what is best for you.
Do not take for granted the things
Closest to your heart.
Cling to them as you would your life,
for without them, life is meaningless.
Do not let your life slip through your fingers
By living in the past nor for the future.
By living your life one day at a time,
You live all the days of your life.
Do not give up when you
Still have something to give.
Nothing is really over until the
Moment you stop trying.
It is a fragile thread that
Binds us to each other.
Do not be afraid to encounter risks.
It is by taking chances
That we learn how to be brave.
Do not shut love out of your life by
Saying it is impossible to find.
The quickest way to receive
Love is to give love;
The fastest way to lose love
Is to hold it too tightly;
In addition, the best way to keep
Love is to give it wings.
Do not dismiss your dreams.
To be without dreams
Is to be without hope;
To be without hope
Is to be without purpose.
Do not run through life
So fast that you forget
Not only where you have been,
But also where you are going.
Life is not a race,
But a journey to be savored
Each step of the way.
Have a Splendid Day!

Once again people preferred Congress and NCP in Maharashtra despite all the upheavals and contradictions. There are number of problems still to consider but if we closely examine the consequences behind then its not a surprising result. Democracy is always right. BJP and Sena had a chance to boost again after 10 long years but they failed to win the faith of people. In the election rally pointing out others weaknesses and criticizing other parties was the major tragic-flaw of these parties. One more strong reason is that all the time people wanted a stable government and picture was clear even before election that because of MNS Sena and BJP is to suffer a lot.

World has received a news that Obama got Nobel for peace. Many contradictory opinions are coming about whether he deserves the Nobel or not. Nobel was not given to Gandhi though he was nominated for five times in 1937, 1938, 1939, 1947 and, finally, a few days before he was murdered in January 1948. His contribution to peace is world-known. The selection committees had given different reasons why Gandhi was not conferred the honour, like "he was too much of an Indian nationalist" and that he was "frequently a Christ, but then, suddenly an ordinary politician". In South Africa Gandhi worked to improve living conditions for the Indian minority. This work, which was especially directed against increasingly racist legislation, made him develop a strong Indian and religious commitment, and a will to self-sacrifice. With a great deal of success he introduced a method of non-violence in the Indian struggle for basic human rights. The method, satyagraha – "truth force" – was highly idealistic; without rejecting the rule of law as a principle, the Indians should break those laws which were unreasonable or suppressive. Each individual would have to accept punishment for having violated the law. However, he should, calmly, yet with determination, reject the legitimacy of the law in question. This would, hopefully, make the adversaries – first the South African authorities, later the British in India – recognise the unlawfulness of their legislation. When Gandhi came back to India in 1915, news of his achievements in South Africa had already spread to his home country. In only a few years, during the First World War, he became a leading figure in the Indian National Congress. Through the interwar period he initiated a series of non-violent campaigns against the British authorities. At the same time he made strong efforts to unite the Indian Hindus, Muslims and Christians, and struggled for the emancipation of the 'untouchables' in Hindu society. While many of his fellow Indian nationalists preferred the use of non-violent methods against the British primarily for tactical reasons, Gandhi's non-violence was a matter of principle. His firmness on that point made people respect him regardless of their attitude towards Indian nationalism or religion. Even the British judges who sentenced him to imprisonment recognised Gandhi as an exceptional personality.
On the contrary to the omission of Gandhi's name by committee in 2009 the award is given to Obama. there is much discussion over the issue comparing both the personalities. Both of them began in South Africa Gandhi fought for the peace by using truth force and non-violence. Forcing non-violence and advocating truth-force is the way to maintain a peace.Though reason given by committee for omitting Gandhi is still there in the case of Obama. Though at surface level it appears that Gandhi was using his tools for political reasons but it was utter necessity for the enslaved souls of India. It is widely known that he used politics as the tool of social reform and concentrated on the need of time. In his Experiments he succeeded in applying the truth-force to any human problem. Social injustice, colonial injustice and above all deeply rooted caste system in India. He was a legend and a myth to give a message of peace to the world. For colonial Britishers also it would have been very difficult to control the masses of angry Indian but only because Mahatma Gandhi they were ruling in a civilized manner. On just a single call of Gandhi whole Indian people actively participated in the freedom struggle.
