You are special!!

A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $ 500/-note.

In the room of 200, he asked, "Who would like this 500 note?"

Hands started going up. He said, "I am going to give this note to one of you but first let me do this.

He proceeded to crumple the note up.

He then asked "Who still wants it?". Still the hands were up in the air.

Well," he replied, What if I do this?".
And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now all crumpled and dirty.

Now who still wants it?" Still the hands went into the air.

My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson, he says.

Nomatter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value.

Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that can come our way We feel as though we are worthless.
But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.
You are special - Don't ever forget it.

Stray Thoughts!!!

You know this feeling, that creeps in you... the feeling that it has been a long time you have not given time to yourself!!! people get so busy sometimes in doing what everyone thinks is the right theing to do... that they themselves forget why they started in the first place...

Then there are friends, friends who are there for you through thick and thin... for god times and bad!!! but sometimes i am forced to wonder if they really are there... not judging anyone here.. but then an advertisement i sawt nite, forces me to think beyond what we see... the advertisement says that in order to live life to the fullest.. one has to reach out... but the best part is that they did not limit the viewers' imagination to anything specific... so here i am reaching out.... but, no one is there to hold my hand... some one...hello!!! anybdy there....

no answer... its not that I do not have friends... its just dat I am now forced to question the whole concept of friendship... coz i was not handed a rulebook or a code of conduct when i set out to look for some FRIENDS....

people keep talking about their Best BUDDIES! being together for ages... far from each other, still inseparable... I do no know what to say.. guess I was just not as blessed as all the others... coz when i look back over the years... i see myself alone... troubles come and go.. all I see wid me is my shadow!!! its been there since i came in the world... being in mom's womb... then a part a mom's shadow for a while.. the dad's.. till junior school... but the I see this shadow finally taking shape, of ME!! as a separate identity .. but still ALONE!!!

but then why fret i say to myself... i can do widout frnz... well after all as Ma says we did come alone in this world and will go alone... all that comes and goes wid us is our Shadow... i respect my shadow... u knw why?? its the most ignored part of the body....I call it a part of my body coz no one can separate their shadow from their self... except perhaps Peter Pan, and I am surely no Pater Pan!!! We all need to reaspect our shadows... its our reflection, what we really are... It some times leads the way and sometims falls behimd us... sometimes right beside us, and other times within us... giving us courage to go on... when in doubt.

Funny though it may sound, but everyday i make it a point to look at my shadow atleast once a day!! its really important to do so... we can never see our soul..but try lookin at your shadow... it will definitely tell u what ur soul looks like...

this is for all those who say they have best frnz... and also for those who do not have any or have lost them.. congrats people, now u can add another name to ur list... as I have... still have to come up with a name though for my BEST FRIEND...

Love, Pragnya

so.. looks like i survived the exams!!! and they went ok...
not that im sure of coming out wid flying colours but then im positive dat ill pass wid gud marks!!!

so, my senior has left officially now!! called me yesterday and told me he wud not be coming back... so now its official dat i am the one who will get road-rollered every time the boss is in a sour mood!! but u know i have a bad habit of getting over such problems quickly.. wish me luck...

Today is just like another beautiful day of January... cool breeze... warm sunshine!! and happy people all around.. no reason at all why someone should be all sad and low!!! but then there are those who have a lot to think about... even they wanna enjoy the lovely January day... but all is not besutiful this side of town... situations can be mean and menacing sometimes.. and then u realize that even 24 hours are not enough to do the things dat u wantede to do... or for that matter think enough so as to come to a logical conclusion.....

but then there comes a ray of hope... a mail.. a call.. someone special, who is always there to put a smile on your face, would love to listen to you all day... even if all you say is just one thing over and over again....

I am waiting for my ray of hope...and hope to bring back the smile that i think i lost somewhere... last night!!

Something inside my heart says,
Let me come out.
Please do me this favor,
I’m feeling left out.

Why do u nurse me night and day,
When u know that I’m so stray?
Why do I find that with all your heart?
U care for me and my brothers;

While just to care about my kin in their heart
,Is the nature of some others?
Why do I find that just for me?
Your heart weeps like lime;

While the other person who made me cry is having a wonderful time.
I taught u love,
I taught u hate.
But the consequences are all your fate.

I taught u laugh,
I taught u cry,
And without me,
u'd be all dry.

When u were little,
I taught u life,
U didn't even know I existed;

But remember this dear old friend,
That none of this is listed.
So I beg of u,
my heart and soul;

Never leave me apart,
But don't care for me so much,
That u lose your heart.
I’m a major part of you;

my ways are soothing and healing;
And if u still don't recognize me,
Dear I’m your "FEELING"!
