Will Rogers, who died in a 1935 plane crash, was one of the greatest political sages America has ever known. Some of his sayings:

* Never slap a man who's chewing tobacco.

* There are two theories to arguing with a woman. Neither works.

* Never miss a good chance to shut up.

* If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.

* The quickest way to double your money is to fold it and put it back into your pocket.

* There are three kinds of men:
The ones that learn by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence and find out for themselves.

* Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

* If you're riding ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it's still there.

* Lettin'the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than putting it back.

* After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring. He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him.
The moral: When you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut.

Lots of wisdom for a day !!! 😜😜

सुविख्यात लेखिका अमृता प्रितम जी ने मायके पर क्या खूब लिखा है:
आज उनकी पुण्यतिथि पर शत शत नमन
--------------------------------
रिश्ते पुराने होते हैं
पर "मायका" पुराना नही होता

जब भी जाओ .....
अलाय बलायें टल जाये
यह दुआयें मांगी जाती हैं

यहां वहां बचपन के कतरे बिखरे होते है
कही हंसी कही खुशी कही आंसू सिमटे होते हैं

बचपन का गिलास....कटोरी ....
खाने का स्वाद बढ़ा देते हैं
अलबम की तस्वीरें
कई किस्से याद दिला देते हैं

सामान कितना भी समेटू
कुछ ना कुछ छूट जाता है
सब ध्यान से रख लेना
हिदायत पिता की ....
कैसे कहूं सामान तो नही
पर दिल का एक हिस्सा यही छूट जाता है

आते वक्त माँ, आँचल मेवों से भर देती हैं
खुश रहना कह कर अपने आँचल मे भर लेती है ....

आ जाती हूं मुस्करा कर मैं भी
कुछ ना कुछ छोड कर अपना

रिश्ते पुराने होते हैं
जाने क्योँ मायका पुराना नही होता
उस देहरी को छोडना हर बार ....आसान नही होता।

- अमृता प्रीतम

Taj terror attack has become a massive psychology case study in Harvard.
Not ONE Taj employee abandoned the hotel and ran right through the attack. They helped guests escape and many died . It confounds psychologists . Finally they pin pointed 3 recruitment strategies 1) Taj did not recruit from big cities , they recruited from smaller cities where traditional culture still holds strong 2) They did not recruit toppers, they spoke to school masters to find out who were most respectful of their parents, elders , teachers and and others .3) They taught their employees to be ambassadors of their guests to the organisation not ambassadors of the company to their guests . The results are stupefying . The Indian army too does not recruit toppers, they recruit people through intensive psychological testing, perhaps that is why they have one of the most effective govt organisations in the country , unlike bureaucrats recruited for being topers but suspect psychologies . This has implications on parenting too

"A man who has gone out of his town comes back and finds that his house is on fire.

It was one of the most beautiful houses in the town, and the man loved the house the most! Many were ready to give double price for the house, but he had never agreed for any price and now it is just burning before his eyes.

And thousands of people have gathered, but nothing can be done, the fire has spread so far that even if you try to put it out, nothing will be saved. So he becomes very sad.

His son comes running and whispers something in his ear:

"Don't be worried. I sold it yesterday and at a very good price ― three times.

The offer was so good I could not wait for you. Forgive me."

Father said, "thank God, it's not ours now!" Then the father is relaxed and became a silent watcher, just like 1000s of other watchers.

Please think about it!

Just a moment before he was not a watcher, he was attached.

It is the same house....the same fire.... everything is the same...but now he is not concerned.
In fact started enjoying it just as everybody else in the crowd.

Then the second son comes running, and he says to the father, "What are you doing? You are smiling ― and the house is on fire?" The father said, "Don't you know, your brother has sold it."

He said, "We have taken only advance amount, not settled fully. I doubt now that the man is going to purchase it now."

Again, everything changes!!

Tears which had disappeared, have come back to the father's eyes, his smile is no more there, his heart is beating fast. The 'watcher' is gone. He is again attached.

And then the third son comes, and he says, "That man is a man of his word. I have just come from him. He said, 'It doesn't matter whether the house is burnt or not, it is mine. And I am going to pay the price that I have settled for. Neither you knew, nor I knew that the house would catch on fire.'"

Again the joy is back and family became 'watchers'! The attachment is no more there.

Actually nothing is changing!

Just the feeling that "I am the owner! I am not the owner of the house!" makes the whole difference.

*The Moral :*

This simple methodology of watching the mind, That you have nothing to do with it.

*Everything starts with a Thought!*

*Most of the thoughts are not yours but from your parents, your teachers, your friends, the books, the movies, the television, the newspapers.*

*Just count how many thoughts are your own, and you will be surprised that not a single thought is your own. All are from other sources, all are borrowed ― either dumped by others on you, or foolishly dumped by yourself upon yourself, but nothing is yours.*

Sow a thought, you reap an action.

Sow an act, you reap a habit.

Sow a habit, you reap a character.

Sow a character, you reap a destiny..!"

“It is better to remain silent at the risk of being thought a fool,
than to talk and remove all doubt of it.”
But, once one of my professors said, "It's better to sound foolish than remain a fool whole life"
This was wrt asking questions in class. :)

That Professor was Dr M L Kapoor, who was one amongst the two youngest HOD's at Roorkee, the other being Dr K G Ranga Raju HOD Civil Engg.
I liked Dr Kapoor as he never walked in class with any book or paper so my attendance in his class was 100%. For the rest, for all four years my avg was 20% :D
