The changing trends in the matrimonial and family institutions in dilemmatic and confused societies like India are quite apprant when you observe the radically changing trends that are taking place in this country. The fickleness of these institutions are quite visible in recent times, when you observe the number of matrimonial advertisements in the daily news papers and internet matrimonial web sites, out of which at least 65 per cent advertisers are second or third marriage persons (except widows) irrespective of their age groups and also the increasing number of criminal cases being filed...

MY mom has been gone for more than 10 years now but I stil think of her almost everyday. So, to my mom and all the other mothers out there...this one is for you...
This is for all the mothers who froze their buns off on metal bleachers at soccer games on Friday night, instead of watching from cars. So that when their kids asked, "Did you see my goal?" They could say, "Of course, wouldn't have missed it for the world," and mean it.
This is for all the mothers who have sat up all night with sick toddlers in their arms, wiping up barf laced with Oscar Mayer wieners and cherry Kool-Aid... Read More
Have you ever been looking on Craigslist for something, find it, and when you get there to pick it up you find something else you hope is for sale? I have run across this situation on more than one occasion in the past. When that happens it usually hurts my wallet because I wasn't prepared to spend anything extra. Anyway, I had been in contact with an older gentleman here in Houston in regards to some antique Singer sewing machines he had up for sale. He agreed to let me come have a look and see if I was still interested. I felt the price was a bit high because they were in exceptional bad... Read More
Have you ever wondered that? Can you put a price on the things you own? Is there always someone who wants your things more than you? Are the things in your life for sale if the price is right even if you haven't thought of it being for sale in the first place? Does money really talk. Is money really the defining answer to all questions? I thought that I was a rare breed since I am usually the one who sees something someone else owns and try to purchase or trade something for it. Not everyone operates like this I understand, but it has been my way of doing business for quite sometime now. Recently... Read More
“I can’t go to Sunday School,” she sobbed to the pastor as he walked by. Seeing her shabby, unkempt appearance, the pastor guessed the reason and, taking her by the hand, took her inside and found a place for her in the Sunday school class. The child was so happy that they found room for her, and she went to bed that night thinking of the children who have no place to worship Jesus.
Some two years later, this child lay dead in one of the poor tenement buildings. Her parents called for the kindhearted pastor who had befriended their daughter to handle the final arrangements.... Read More
One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry. He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door.
Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk.
He drank it slowly, and then asked, “How much do I owe you?”
“You don’t owe me anything,” she replied. “Mother has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness.”
He said, “Then... Read More
Generally, for most of us, life is good. We have healthy bodies, we can walk, talk, hear, see, and feel things. We can exercise, eat, drive our cars, live in a nice house and having loved one who care for us. On the most part, we have all been blessed, beyond measure. If you think about it, even on our worst days, we can still do all of these things...we should ALWAYS be thnkful for EVERYTHING that we have.
