Good Morning early bird

At the horizon, the sun is not hot yet...
the birds are already up
as the dew vapours from the soil,
Its the twilight before sunrise

the sky is no longer dark yet...
each moment is a picture never seen before
god paints a different picture
how much I receive depends oh how much I believe

Your own form

"What creates the world"? 
"What is it that is moving... always there"?
 "What is it that has been there from time"? ask an physicist... 

 He said..."Energy"

 "It always was moving, always has been everything that ever existed, always will exist it moves through form, into form and out of form" 

 "What created the god?"
 "How did god create universe?"
 "Can he destroy it too?" 
ask an saint, a guru or a wise man... 

 "God"... never got created and never destroyed all that ever was, ever will be moving in forms is Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omniscient.

For both, its the same meaning and different words both comes from individual consciousness only human potential is the limit

... recognize thy own

Ayan Rand an ideal writer

Ayan Rand. (Born Feb 2, 1905...Expired Mar 6, 1982)

It's Fascinating to read/understand Ayan Rand...
Being an avid reader sometimes I buy books - just to keep them in my library shelf for sake of collection for future reading. There was a book in my library called 'The Fountainhead'. I never read it for years but one fine day (two weeks back) I said heck...what is that fat book doing waiting for me to read? I just started and then hoped that this book must not end. It bought me to understand, appreciate and be in awe of a great writer, philospher ....
After reading 'Fountainhead' and now reading 'Atlas Shrugged' I cannot but be in awe of this great writer, playwrite, philospher, screen writer and very, very talented women. Wish she was alive...
Atlass Shrugged...tells about the "role of the mind of a man" and it eventually explores a new morality , that of - rational self interest - Objectivism. And all this coming from a women...Ayan Rand and in times of 1950's in USA

Ayan Rand's heros are Howard Roark, Dagny Taggart, Hank Rearden, Fransisco D'Anconia, agner Danneskjöld or John Galt - powerful individuals, have integrity and passion that cannot be challenged and that's what I like. They are passionate with extremes and with a vision... They exist because they love their professions with zeal and pursue their happiness. They do not complain like other characters that you read in other novels or see in some movies.

(By the way 'Atlass Shrugged' is being made into a movie and presently is in pre-production/scripting stage as of 2008)

While 'Atlass Shrugged' has many characters and issues of railroad, government, sex, music, politics, philosphy, science and above all human ability its 'Fountainhead' that has one major character Howard Roark - she wrote this for more then 6 years, got rejected by many publishers , even got critisizm but due to word and mouth became the best seller. (Even today her works are sold in millions and best seller's list)

Ayan Rand's The Fountainhead's protagonist is Howard Roark - a school dropout architect, his struggle against what Rand described as "second-handers"—those who attempt to live through others, this also has a love story and some of the writings are marvellous. This fiction novel has other interesting characters and antagonists (one is Toohey) but while reading this the curious reader is going thru topsy-turvy ride as to who are friends and who are enemies...and giving the feeling how this story is going to end.
'Atlas Shrugged' was the last fictional novel of Ayan Rand. I wish to tell my friends to read the two works of Ayan Rand and even today (recession time) those of her thoughts still hold true. If you guys want to understand her philosphical opinions read Atlas Shrugged (1000 pages) novel but in the last chapter "This is John Galt Speaking" you will find her philosphy of individualism - the role of the mind of a man! And yes man has a profound right to be "Happy" all these written by Ayan Rand...A women whom I admire.

Will want to write more on her...peace to her

Mr.Banta Singh letter to Bill Gates

Letter from Banta Singh of Punjab to Mr. Bill Gates of Microsoft 

 Subject: Problems with my new computer

 Dear Mr. Bill Gates, 

 We have bought a computer for our home and we have found some problems, which I want to bring to your very urgent and kind notice. 

 1. There is a button 'start' but there is no 'stop' button. We request you to immediately and kindly  check this.

 2. We find there is 'Run' in the menu. One of my friends clicked 'run' he ran up to Amritsar ! So, we request you to change that to 'sit', so that we can click that by sitting. 

 3. One doubt is whether any 're-scooter' is available in system? I find only 're-cycle', but I own a Bajaj scooter at my home.

 4. There is 'Find' button but it is not working properly. My wife lost the door key and we tried a lot trace the key with this ' find' button, but was unable to trace. Please rectify this problem. 

 5. My child learnt 'Microsoft word' now he wants to learn 'Microsoft sentence', so when you will provide that? Don't you think children are your potential costumers?

 6. I bought computer, CPU, mouse and keyboard, but there is only one icon which shows 'MY Computer': when you will provide the remaining items? 

 7. It is surprising that windows says 'MY Pictures' but there is not even a single photo of mine. So when will you keep my photo in that?

 8. There is 'MICROSOFT OFFICE' what about 'MICROSOFT HOME' since I use the PC at home only. 

 9. You provided 'My Recent Documents'. When you will provide 'My Past Documents'? 

 10. You provide 'My Network Places'. For God sake please do not provide 'My Secret Places'.

 I do not want to let my wife know where I go after my office hours. 

 Regards, Banta 

... Last one to Mr Bill Gates : Sir, how is it that your name is Gates but u are selling WINDOWS?

Toby's Diary - Time Out Part Two...The future

Friends, it was last year almost this season I had to make a short film with a very limited budget and after brainstroming, I decided what is the problem of kids with their parents and my film "Time Out" was made...

It (the film) has to be made not because it has had great technical stuff of camera language or fast paced MTV kind of editing or the background music, but it has to be made with limited budget and harsh simplicity almost brutal sensitivity...I am past with that Then, after a long time I had to feel what if the future will have the same problem?

I have never written sci-fi story...a very, very short say not more then 500 words to convey the same problem but to have a peek-a-boo at future...what would it be...mankind today is moving with lots of speed but am not sure what direction it is headed...people chasing material goals but not sure where they stand in family way...and what would be the future...the future you will give to your kids? 

The rapid advancement of science and technology will make your life easier? but will it make it simpler?

Will there be something called soul? what imprints will science and technology will have on young eager minds who want love? 

So, here it is a very short story of a boy called Toby who writes his 'feelings' sometimes being personal and sometimes cold to his in between the lines too...and hope a day does not come in future of mankind where the science and technology will give us Toby's... 

Toby’s Diary Year: 2099 23-03-99 

Dear Diary, 
Jury in favor of Ma and my step father Banister. They rule out me connecting to my pa. 48 hours left for me to be with Lucy. Feeling empty, sad & lonely. 

Ma happy with Banister. 

NIWARD Times report: Dr.Rodger, held up in Freud terminal cell escapes! Rumor is - he joins Rebel’s moment as his chip untraceable in UPRS. 

24-03-99 Today Lucy behaves muted and strange. Ma and Banister went out on virtual teleport date. A secret, pssst Lucy was hacked and it gave me 4D-AV message from Pa that he will rescue me. It’s a secret... 

25-03-99 I am feeling lonely as my only friend Lucy is gorn. Banister bought bunch of blokes 4rm Cyberzine, chips of Lucy removed, uninstalled and terminated. Cried in bathroom. Keeping strong. I miss Lucy...the only Robert friend I had :( 

26-03-99 Tomorrow is jury time again. What a headache – as if I don’t know what to do. Ma acting strange, showing "emotions" to me but overheard Banister joking that she will be Billionaire – will make hell of a lot of money outta me. 

27-03-99 Jury kind to me. Told them since I will be new, I want to choose Nobel Orphan cell. Ma sad or seems to be. Oh I will be scanned 2morrow bout some preceptor glands in brain and know volume of emotional electrodes of neurons that make relationship memory. As if I care? 

28-03-99 Strange robots. Ma Cried. Banister was as usual happy. They inject me with gun like injection and after some time, I was in senses. Heard doctors telling my genetic code is fed to tutor-computer server and chip installed to see reactions of my being. What the hell is that? 

NIWARD Times report: Flushed with repeated success in improvement of Brain Trans, the future of mankind is secured as all the unpleasant emotional memory is organically terminated. The bill is on way for approval by UN council with little opposition of politicians and also rebels or have not’s - the terrorists who resort to violence. 

Oh Diary, I Toby, tell you this is my last post, 2morrow I will be operated and genetically upgraded. Ma gave me jelly-belly to eat as much as I want. Ma cried too but then calm.

NIWARD Times Advertisement: 14 children (age 9-12) recently terminated of old emotional memory & upgraded to 5.8 billion tetra bites Einstein version 5.90. 120 years of insurance covered. Programmed to read and obey all parents’ data/instructions. No defect either genetic or memory. The intelligence up gradation is recognized as global resource of genetic code confirmed to legal and moral standards. Auction on 01-04-99 

30-03-99 NIWARD Times report: The breaking news. The rebels broke into cyberzine bio sciences Inc, kidnapping 32 children 14 of which were to be auctioned tomorrow. 18 murders reported in last 24 hours. 16 scientists killed at Cyberzine zone and 2 others from star villa - Mrs. & Mr. Banister. The rebels are suspect lead by the prime suspect Dr. Rodger – untraceable like other rebels as they are humans sans biochips.

The Best!

The best athletes don't care about whether or not they're the best. What they care about is the game. The best actors, musicians, doctors, scientists, film makers, teachers and businesspeople are not consumed with being the best. They're consumed with a passion for what they're doing. If your desire is to be the best merely for its own sake, you will strive and struggle against a world that absolutely does not care. If, on the other hand, your most abiding desire is to make a positive difference, you will surely end up being the best at some particular thing or another. The real substance of accomplishment is never in the trophies or the praise or the recognition it brings. The substance of accomplishment is in the value it delivers. The best performers in any field are not the ones who hope to be the best or even the ones who already think they are. The best performers are those who never have to even think about where they stand in the rankings. Commit yourself to delivering value, and you won't be burdened with the need to keep score. Indeed, you will always be on top of the game.

Leave Letters...:)

This is a collection of leave letters and applications written by people from various places in Pakistan... 

1. A student's leave letter: "As I am suffering from my uncle's marriage I cannot attend the class...." 
2. A candidate's application: "This has reference to your advertisement calling for a 'typist And an accountant - Male or Female'... As I am both for the past Several years and I can handle both; I am applying for the post."

4. Another employee applied for half day leave as follows: "Since I've to go to the cremation ground at 10 o-clocks and I may not return, please grant me half day casual leave" 

5. A leave letter to the headmaster: "As I am studying in this school I am suffering from headache. I request you to leave me today" 

6. An incident of a leave letter: "I am suffering from fever, please declare one day holiday." 

7. Another leave letter written to the headmaster: As my headache is paining, please grant me leave for the day. 

8. A covering note: "I am enclosed herewith..." 

9. From H.A.L. Administration dept: As my mother-in-law has expired and I am responsible for it, Please grant me 10 days leave.

Swami Vivekananda words...What you want or what you need?

When I Asked God for Strength He Gave Me Difficult Situations to Face

When I Asked God for Brain & Brown He Gave Me Puzzles in Life to Solve
When I Asked God for Happiness He Showed Me Some Unhappy People When I Asked God for Wealth He Showed Me How to Work Hard
When I Asked God for Favors He Showed Me Opportunities to Work Hard When I Asked God for Peace He Showed Me How to Help Others God Gave Me Nothing I Wanted He Gave Me Everything I Needed

Traveling Through Life – Dr.John C. Maxwell

Here are Tips fromDr. John C. Maxwell, recognized Leadership expert, where he gave 10 solid tips for traveling through life

Tip #1: Travel Light. 

You can always tell the difference between an experienced traveler and a new one… by the size of their luggage. John mentioned that too many people travel through life with a lot of emotional baggage, which they've not yet learned to let go. Traveling light is about finding your priorities… carrying only the essential stuff… Oh yes… and asking for forgiveness along the way. 

Tip #2: Take someone with you - Life is about relationships. 

Isn't it awfully lonely to travel through life alone? Maybe you've been hurt before, but that doesn't mean that you should close your heart. It only means that you know the characteristics you don't want in a partner/friend. Let time heal your heart and then find someone to travel through life with.
Tip #3: Follow The Road Map - Have a game plan

If you do not know where you are going, then how can you hope to get there? It is important to know where you are (A) by doing self-reflection everyday and where you want to go (B) by setting goals… but do not succumb to "destination disease". Life is not only about reaching B. Life HAPPENS between A and B! Enjoy the journey… 

Tip #4: Take The High Road 

"Those who are instruments of grace to others become recipients of grace to themselves". John talks about the necessity of having a life stance - your overall frame of reference - your attitude, assumptions and expectations of yourself, others around you and life. Taking the high road means that you do not keep score. You learn to forgive others and do your best to help the people around you.  

Tip #5: Stop And Ask For Directions 

Most people are too stubborn or proud to do that. They would rather go around in circles than stop to ask someone for directions. Remember that no matter the direction you are heading, it's very likely that someone else has already been there and done that. Be prepared to ask for advice… and shortcut your learning curve. 

Tip #6: Make A U-Turn When Needed 

"Life is the art of drawing without an eraser." You can't turn back time when you have made a mistake… but you can change directions and make a U-turn before it's too late. Sometimes, we may find ourselves headed into a dead end… the sooner we realize we have to make a change and do it, the more likely we will find ourselves back on a safe route. Remember… not changing when you have to may lead to death!  

Tip #7: Appreciate The Detours 

Life is not a smooth one way street. Along the way, you will meet obstacles and challenges. Appreciate and learn to take the detours. I love the way John reframed "Problems". He said that problems are… Predictors Reminders Opportunities Blessings Lessons Everywhere Messages Solvable Could you see how that can be really empowering?  

Tip #8: Take Pictures - Create Memories.

John suggests that you should…. Work like you don't need the money Dance like no one is watching Sing like no one is listening Love like you've never been hurt Live like it's heaven on earth How beautiful is that? 

Tip #9: Travel The Extra Mile 

And then some…Who knows what you would find in that extra mile? Another adventure… A beautiful sight… A lovely encounter… An enchanting lover… Go the extra mile… it may be worth the whole journey. 

Tip #10: Stop To Smell The Roses 

Remember not to rush though life… Take some time out to appreciate its beauty… Enjoy the butterflies' dance… and last but not least, be grateful… for everyone and everything in your life.
