Mothers’ Day :)

WoMan (woman) : all that a MAN can ever aspire to be or do.. plus a WOMB! MOTHERHOOD is the highest state of being. Having a MOTHERLY vision is a sign of an EVOLVED CONSCIENCE. Not just for women, this value also makes a man a COMPLETE MAN. The world needs more such people. Thanks so much for being there maa ๐Ÿ™‚ย GOD BLESS YOU! HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO ONE AND ALL ๐Ÿ™‚

Planing to curate all of mom’s creative artworks at a dedicated webspace here >> https://shashiraman.wordpress.com/ >> you may wish to join her there ๐Ÿ™‚ย cheers! We’ll post stuff soon. Thanks!

More Happiness @ JORAD :)

Happy to share.. we completed yet another successful cycle of JORAD today – our sweet little community service effort with contributions as low as Just One Rupee A Dayย (J O R A D) !!

The collections during past few months were awesome (more than 25K!!) and were used to donate Groceries and Personal Care items for the elderly at a nearby old-age home.ย Thanks folks for the support.

You can also start this simple initiative at your own workplace. Read this quick story for more details ๐Ÿ™‚ย

The Dark Knight Rises!

He he .. PLEASANT SURPRISES..the LIFE is full of ๐Ÿ™‚ Here’s CHAMGU Baby ๐Ÿ˜› a small little bat that paid us a visit yesterday while being chased by a crow!

The Gotham City dude fell in our balcony.. mom saved him from the crow and offered him this basket which he/she happily entered ๐Ÿ™‚ I did some online research about how to mk the place cozy for a bat.. they like it dark, cool n a little humid..n more than food (insects) its important to provide them with water so that they don’t dehydrate owing to the large surface-area of their wings. By the time I returned home the dude was all fit and fine n ready for a flight. As suggested (on the internet) we released him after dark ..at a little height above the ground (to save it from cats) ..n with a glide to help him get the initial thrust. The complete sequence was so unexpected ..n we forgot our small little tensions n rather got to learn about a whole new form of LIFE. THE DARK KNIGHT RISES..n it was so awesome to see it LIVE ..with dimensions way beyond a 3D movie ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Father’s Day :)

With one hand the potter pushes and pokes the soft clay giving it shape..and with the other it supports the clay helping it face the push. Just like that ..while a motherly presence shapes an individual’s persona, the fatherly existence provides a solid ground and firmness to an individual enabling one to embrace the chiseling strokes of the existence and keep evolving – and the result is a complete personality – majestic, robust and yet loving, lovable and creative ! HAPPY FATHER’s DAY to all those fathers, mothers and friends who provide this unique stability to one another ๐Ÿ™‚
