The Indian World
India is always a matter of curiosity for the western world.For being among the oldest civilizations of the world they always tried to find more about India and went for voyages to discover India and its culture & tradition.

Gharwali Diwali

Gharwali Diwali
We always understands importance of things when we are devoid of them whether they are humans, some things or some festivals, we only understands value of somethings in our lives when we don’t have the opportunity to feel them as we were feeling them in the past. Post my father’s dad we realized how futile festivals are without guests in home without the usual hullabaloo. We have a lot of guests in our house on Eid and Diwali due to my father’s friendly nature. He could easily mix up with anybody irrespective of their ages. He was a child among children, full of energy when with young people, a scholar among intellectuals, a worker among staff and so on. I still remember how people crowded our house with gifts and wishes when he was alive. Neighbors, family friends, staff and even local MLA visited our house. We make sure that we should not go anywhere during Diwali holidays and for that reason we have missed several weddings and other parties from our relatives on the…

The Performer

The Performer 



John committed suicide after his expulsion from a reputed band due to his arrogant nature resulted in misfortunes for his family.

His son Albert was crude in knowledge of music but started performing in bars and restaurant to support living of his mother and younger sister.

His hard work, talent and supple behavior soon made him famous in his town.

Tears rolled down from his eyes when he was contacted by the same band for which his father used to play the drum to be their lead performer.

It's our perspective which unites earth surface with sky at the horizon.

He Who Would Sow Well, Must Reap Well

He Who Would Sow Well, Must Reap Well


This saying has a positive effect, it encourages us to do good so that we also receive good from others and most of the time this statement holds its ground but not always. Recently we receive a stab on our backs by one of our close relatives which made me rethink about that statement.
Let me explain you the details. We ( my brother and I ) are manufactures of men's attire. We decided to open a retail outlet and since we both remained occupied in office and factory my brother decided to call our relative who at that time was facing financial crisis due to loss in business. Moreover we also observed that there were no chances in near future for him to recover those losses and came back on track. We offered him partnership in that retail outlet and when he asked about the investments we assured him keeping his financial condition in mind that it was not much while we made the initial investments.During this period he cleared most of his dues an…

Winner

Winner

" Her dance shows her hunger to win," he raised her hand upwards to declare her the winner of the dance competition.
But worry and trouble on her face portraying her unhappiness regarding results, she looked at the barren face of the runner up contestant and took the mic from the presenter.
"Ladies and gentlemen I want to confess something," the organizer standing at the corner of the stage gave her an intense look of anger.
"I have paid a huge amount to the organizers to win this title as the other girl was unable to do so for her low financial status," she gave her prize to the runner up girl while the crowd gave her standing ovation.
Money can give you fame and luxury but satisfaction comes only with truth.
