View about life:
1)In school, we are taught a lesson and then given a test;
in life, we’re given a test that teaches a lesson.
2)Be in the world, do not ignore it;
Be in ‘your’ world, but not part of it;
Live with the illusion, not within it;
Use the illusion in order to experience
the ultimate reality of ‘Who You Really Are’.
Be a realist. Understand the negative aspects of life
and pursue the positive. Life is worth living, no matter
how expensive or painful the lessons we have to learn
have been.

Diary:Day before yesterday we attended a dinner party.
A fun loving couple entertained us. The husband was
offering flower with love to his beautiful wife. We
asked them, ”Are you made for each other?”.
The husband replied with a broad smile, ”No, we are
mad after each other.” Then there was a puzzle.
He asked us to find the word ”love” in the name
”Violet”. We said the spelling of ‘love’ can be
found in the name in a scattered position. We asked
him to compose a question on the answer ”Indira Gandhi
is the 3rd Prime Minister of India”. No one could reply.
It is not converting the sentence into question like,”Is
she the 3rd P.M. of India.?” One should ask her position
among the names of P.M.s listed in serial according to the
order of their ascendancy to the post of P.M. And the dinner
party was really fun filled.

lot of noise, because life is the very opposite of death.
And therefore, as I see it, if you’re quiet, you’re not
living. You’ve got to be noisy, or at least your thoughts
should be noisy, colourful and lively.-Mel Brooks.

Diary: I attended the opening ceremony of Udupi D.C.(District Commissioner’s )Office, named Rajatadri(Rajata=silver,Adri=mountain)at Manipal on 25th December and it was X’mas day. Udupi district was formed on 25th August, 1997. It was the birthday of Lord Shri Krishna(Janmashtami).It was the 8th month of the year and Shri Krishna was the 8th son of Vasudeva(father) and Devaki(mother). The D.C. Office was built at the cost of 30 crore rupees, on 25th December,2011 (after 14 years) on the birhday of Jesus Christ, the loving son of Lord, the creator of the universe.The attractive building built in Nepali style, was inaugurated by the chief minister of Karnataka. Many  artists were rewarded during the function.Udupi was called Roupya(=silver) Pita(seat) long ago because of the

presence of temple of Shiva(Chandra Mouli).Lord Shiva is resident of Rajatadri,

(mountain of silver=Himaalaya).There was classical music

on Saxophone by Udupi Janardhan.We saw the statue of B.R.Ambedkar

(member of committee who composed constitution of India) and sculpture

carved in stone of Gandhiji along with his followers, marching on Dandi Yatra.

December 25th is also the birthday of Madan Mohan Malaviya, who founded

the Benares(Kashi/Varanasi) Hindu University. Atal Bihari Vajapayee, the ex Prime

Minister of India also celebrates his 87th birthday.The day is particularly special for me because my spouse is celebrating his birthday today on 25th December.

Also note that this is the last Sunday(25th December,2011) of this year.

Wish you all happy X’mas and prosperous New Year!
