If you look at the current political situation and the situation 100 years ago it doesn't seem to have changed. May be a bit of throwing around of power here and there. but all in all the situation's really sticky. It' like being in the middle of an inferno and saying, "hey I'm okay!!!" when you are not. everyone's wanting superpower status and the US is busy guarding it's top spot. have you see the way US and Britain are always running to hde in each other's skits and patting each other on the back. It's like the mutual admiration society! There are these courageous countries like France that take a stand and don't back down. Then there is Russia that says, " Peace bro! I'm friends with you all!!!" India and pakistan always at loggerheads had running to big brother US or nicely evading the problem for as long as they can. It's so funny, when you look at the pictures of Prez Musharraf and PM Singh shaking hands they are all sugar and honey but in their minds they are swearing at each other!!! HAHAHA!!! Me as a commoner can only laugh at all the fun. then there's te dragon China that surfaces blowing fire and makes the superpowers shake and shiver with fear. The little football UN that's being kicked around merrily by them all.
It just make you wonder at what's happening with the world!!!

A malnourished child eating. A heart rending sight that makes you wonder why the fates are against this little being. But we who haev excess wate and waste more. Food has always been freely available for us that's why we don't know its worth. My mum always told me " be hungry for a day and you won't waste food for the rest of your life". Look at this pitiful picture and tell me if it doesn't pull on your heartstrings???
don't waste anything for it may not come again!!!

I was rushing past life at breakneck speed (and I'm only 17) when a friend sent me this picture. MY LORD. i just realized how much of life i was missing, rushing past. let this inspire you. let it help you find the meaning of life, like it helped me. i stopped, waited and thought.
I've had a feeling of being wronged. nothing's fair unless it's MY way. selfish human nature talking here!!! But the age old concept 'Karma' or simply 'as you sow so shall you reap' takes over. Either you get a taste of your own medecine or you don't waste your time plotting revenge. why is the world stuck on peoploe's bad instead of searching for the good in them. when you say you want friends look inside and ask if YOU are a good friend to others. So no matter how fast you try and escape all those deeds will catch up with you- good or bad and you will get what you gave.
WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND!!!

It’s that time of the night when everyone’s asleep. At least everyone in your time zone. The night is black outside save for the stars in the sky and the few lights twinkling in the distance. The cool night breeze blows in your face but sleep evades you. You are wide-awake and your thoughts are loud and clear in the night. You have the house to yourself. Don’t make the mistake of switching on the T.V. Sit and connect with your thoughts. Your inner soul has been crying out to listen. But in the hustle and bustle of life you have ignored it. No, put down that coffee cup. Start experiencing what people travel all the way to the Himalayas to experience. Yes, you can hear your thoughts sorting out. Hmm… yesterday’s problem at work, or that project which you couldn’t complete. All your muddled thoughts have unraveled and presented themselves before you. You just realize that your productivity is at it’s best when the world sleeps.Your body is tired from a hard day’s work. Sit down cross-legged near the window. Keep a single dim light on. Hear the past speak to you. It will tell you what the future holds. Your brain is fired up. You want to keep on working, keep on thinking. But this tryst with your thoughts won’t last. Sleep steals over you cunningly, subtly. Your eyelids get heavy and your brain switches off. The time has passed. Some other time some other truth will be revealed. For now just…sweet slumber.
