My NewYork Trip

It was pure fun and only fun. I had a great time with my friends, Amit, Nishant, Avinash and Nakka. We had a gala time in Newyork. Basically, we simply rocked Newyork. Our main items of attractions were Libery island, Stetan Island, Brooklyn Bridge, Ground-Zero (former WTC), Wall Street, Empire state building.

Education is not the amount of information that is put into your brain and runs riot there, undigested, all your life. We must have life-building, man-making, character-building assimilation of ideas. If you have assimilated five ideas and made them your life and character, you have more education than any man who has got by heart a whole library.

INDIA: My dear Motherland

My life's allegiance is to this my motherland; and if I had a thousand lives, every moment of the whole series would be consecrated to your service, my countrymen, my friends.

If we (Indians) want to become equal with Englishman or the American, we will have to teach as well as learn, and we have plenty to teach to the world for centuries to come.

Thoughts of Power: Swami Vivekanand

God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.

He is an atheist who does not believe in himself. The old religions said that he was an atheist who did not believe in God. The new religion says that he is an atheist who does not believe in himself.

Faith, faith, faith in ourselves, faith in God -- this is the secret of greatness.

To succeed, you must have tremendous perseverance, tremendous will. "I will drink the ocean", says the persevering soul. "at my will mountains will crumble up". Have that sort of energy, that sort of will; work hard, and you will reach the goal.

This is a great fact: strength is life; weakness in death. Strength is felicity, life eternal, immortal; weakness is constant strain and misery, weakness is death.

Doing is very good, but that comes from thinking. Fill the brain, therefore, with high thoughts, highest ideals; place them day and night before you; and out of that will come great work.

What is love: An interesting insight by Cornell University research

In the summer of 1999, Cornell university published research purporting to show that love really is a drug. To be precise, it a cocktail of dopamine, phenylethylamin and oxytocin in the bloodstream that produces the sensation we call infatuation. Love, the researcher argued, was in fact a chemically induced form of insanity.

Niagara Fall Trip

Last weekend, I went to Niagara Fall with my brother and his friends. It was a fun trip with full of excitements. I must admit that I had lots of fun during this stint. Six hours of non-stop driving, kudos to my brother, seemed worth while when we reached the climax of our journey. Niagara fall is undoubtedly an awesome sight to visit. Look at the wonderful rainbow in the picture, I never saw rainbow so closely. I can still feel the mist of the niagara fall on my face when I see its snaps.

As it was a long weekend, it was totally jam-packed. The lighting arrangement in the night time was outstanding. There were all sorts of color lights cutting through the wildly flowing water. Believe me, Niagara is a must visit for anyone who is visiting East coast.
