Respect cannot be cultivated

Respect is something you earn,

You cannot beg, borrow or steal it.

It is a process of  right doings

I am Free

A young life was abruptly taken away at the age of 18. A freak accident plucked the young university student from his parents, relatives and his friends.

The pain of agony was felt at his funeral service. There was not a single dry eye at the service. His family and his friends gave him a glorious send-off.

On behalf of the young spirit I like to share a poem attributed by an unknown author.

 

 

I’m Free

 

Don’t grieve for me for now I’m free!

I’m following the path God laid for me.

I took his hand when I heard Him call,

I turned my back and left it all.

 

I could not stay another day

To laugh, to love, to work or play.

Tasks left undone must stay that way.

I found peace at close of day.

 

If my parting has left a void

Then fill it with remembered joy!

A love shared, a laugh, a kiss

Ah yes! These things I too will miss.

 

Be not burdened with times of sorrow,

I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow

My life’s been full, I’ve savoured much,

Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.

 

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,

Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.

Lift up your heart and share with me,

God wanted me now, HE SET ME FREE…..

Who? (Friday Funnies)

St. Peter was on extended leave so a minor saint was left in charge of the Pearly gates.

The Saint was  ordered to get proof of identity before letting anyone into heaven.

First up was Beethoven.

“I need proof of identity” said the saint.

So Beethoven played a few bars of his Fifth Symphony and he was admitted.

Next up was Albert Einstein.

“I need proof of identity” said the saint.

So  Einstein explained the  theory of relativity and he was admitted.

Next up was George Bush

“I need proof of identity” said the saint.

” But I am George Bush, former President of the United States of America.”

“Sorry, everyone needs proof. Even Beethoven and Einstein needed proof.”

“Who?”

“OK,  you can go through”

"Keerimalai- Kerni" Keerimalai hotsprings, jaffna Sri Lanka

The above  shot  was taken  two years ago at  Keerimalai – Kerni  (hot springs), Jaffna, Sri Lanka.

The  hot spring pool  is a  very well known historical site in Jaffna. The springs are separated for each gender and this picture  captures the open-men-well area. The picture shows a typical day at the hot springs when public enjoys a dip.

The  wall adjacent to the ocean was open until Tsunami in 2004. Unfortunately Tsunami waves took away few lives while they were bathing in this pool. Since then the a wall has been added as a safety measure (beige colour wall)

 

The great soul  Mahathma Gandhi said:

“You must not lose faith in humanity.

Humanity is an ocean.,

If a few drops of the ocean are  dirty,

the ocean does not become dirty

The Mountain and the River

The mountain does not speak ill of the river just because it is high and mighty.

Nor does the river scorn the mountain just because it moves swiftly and gracefully.  

They both are great in their own way.
