He saw them as performers helping them hone their abilities and advised them on navigating new challenges. Buddha mentored them. He documented his principles and trained his disciples’ t...

Story of a shrine – Seremban Gurudwara MalaysiaI now have a brick and I will make my palace soon. I now have a piece of land and I will make my kingdom soon.

Mahatama GandhiIn a marathon race there is one difference between winner and looser.  The winner runs that extra mile that the looser is not able to run. This is applicable on our life and great people’s lives. They go an extra mile to serve the purpose. They take control over their life and renounce worldly pleasures and serve humanity at the cost of their life. One such person who influenced thoughts of many had the habit of walking miles and miles reaching out people. Spreading the message of peace and brotherhood he lead the Indian independent movement and bought down mighty British rule in India with his non violent movement.When whole world was fighting a violent battle with guns f...

Before it and after thatAs per mythological stories whenever good have won over evil that triumph is celebrated till date as like festival Diwali Dusshera, Holi. Akin to it in real world when some ones efforts yield results in terms of triumph over all vexing conditions than it is celebrated as day of National importance likes 15thAug, 2nd oct. 1st may and so on. The concept signifies valor and sacrifices of heroes. They sacrificed their today to make our tomorrow better.

When there is no thing left to win over and there is nothing to loose. Where worries have no place and there is no reason to be happy. Man to animals nothing fear.

Welcome to the beautiful empire of deadSome of world’s most haunted placesThere is a lane near my apartment in Malaysia that connects a pedestrian to metro rail line. By the lane there is a Malaysian cemetery. White tombs, fruit laden trees, blossoming flowers, green iron grills with moon and star engraved on it forms a picturesque scene captivating every eye passing by. Whenever I take a walk I see children who are notorious for their noise they made, looks tight lipped with fear. The peace prevailing is disturbing to few but attract attentions of many. They bury their loved ones with pomp and show that it is a farewell to perished body and at same time celebrating rebirth of soul. Most f...

These dreamers float on an impatient wind. They set their wings against the directions of winds sometimes. They just need that sky to live, they challenge those scaling heights and brush with dangers everyday, they win everyday, they celebrate everyday.

Mumbai language: This special story is about silent language of gestures and signs Mumbaiites use in their day to day life“Le Parole est. d’argent, Le Silence est d’ore”- a French proverb meaning Speech is silver (but) silence is Gold.Where thousand words fail to make an impact; silence works like a golden rule. An action narrates entire story. A gesture speaks thousand words. The silent language of gesture can whisper, rage, implore, accuse, burst into song, explode into revelation, stab the conscience and can heal a faith. Remember, a thumbs up gesture by a coach shown to tiresome loosing student, many a times, had changed the scene of a boxing bout. Fast bowlers during cricke...

Ram is described as responsible serious, ethical and strict by nature whereas Laxman is just opposite by nature.

Not only they belong to same family but also both the characters are known for the resolve they took for well being of people.It is said Laxman took a penance in Hrishikesh. A flimsy rope beneath Laxman jhula, first suspension bridge of India engineered by British during pre- independence era, reminds of him who m...
