Chanakya and Me

My friend sent me Chanakya's Quotes. I immediately thoguht of responses to them. I wrote back and thought i would post the responses here... Neethi in Tamil means Judgement. So you will see, a Neethi for every Quote of Chanakya. "A person should not be too honest. Straight trees are cut first and Honest people are screwed first. - Chanakya My Neethi : To maintain a log of the consecutive lies you said is difficult. You need to be smarter than SMART can mean. "Even if a snake is not poisonous, it should pretend to be venemous **- Chanakya My Neethi : One day, your pretence comes out to the limelight and your true color will show up.

It will destroy you." - Chanakya My Neethi : If you don’t share your secrets, you will never know anyone else’s secret and you will never have opinions of people.

:) I asked this question to my friends yesterday during lunch at a restaurant. Here are the answers i got... I want to become a child again. Need not bother about finance, responsibilies, the right and the wrong. I want to become a child again, to lead a life with child-like qualities.... the money comes from the ATM machine and I dont have to think more about it.... I want to be a child who is grown up enough but not to the extent of taking responsibilities for anything other than examinations and tests at school.... Others i could think of.... I will ask for a long walk with God enjoying the scenic beauty around, in a beautiful country side...or forest.... I will ask for his/her autograph.... I will ask for his/her photograph.... No one has seen him/her till date.... Or I may not be able to speak at all... It will take sometime for me to recover from the pleasant suprise of seeing God.. May be the last point is what might ultimately happen.... :) :)

Forgive for Good

I know this topic seems too much of a strain on your mind.. and very different from my usual writing pieces. Over the last week, I happened to meet some one online and believe me.... Those 30 minutes of chat on Yahoo messenger with her changed my way of looking at things in life.. It is not what she said that made me think about forgiving people.. it is what I felt made me change my way of looking at things.... Since that day, I am relaxed much more than ever before when it comes to people and their attitudes.. coz, I have learnt to say " These things happen in life " and " It is okay to Forgive..." Now why do I say 'Forgive for Good' and not just 'FORGIVE'?? That is because, when you forgive, you not only learn that you are No God to Forgive people but also learn that your blood pressure and tension come to a quick control. This way you no longer brood about why some one did/said something unplesant to you. In most cases, the same person wo
