.....the personal commitment to Integrity means: Speaking the honest truth at all times, even though it might hurt the listener, and create conflicts for you personally. It also means never to settle for anything less than what you deserve in your relationships with others. Living with Integrity is not easy, because she demands your total commitment to your personal values that must be higher than ordinary. She also expects you to make choices based on what you believe, and not what others tell you to believe. All being said, living with Integrity even for a day is million times better than countless years of life without her. A life with Integrity is the only life well lived, in my view. So go ahead, take that bold step, and live the life with Integrity.

Simple living will remove unnecessary demands on your life and free your mind to make the right choices. Simplicity will reduces your stress and make you happier

Absurdities and Anomalies of Life always amaze and amuse me. Shared here are my favorite 21 mind-boggling dichotomies: (i) Only Certainty in this world is that there is nothing Certain, except death and taxes off course, (ii) Only Constant is the Change, (iii) The more you try to impress folks, the less impressed they will be, (iv) The more afraid you become of death, the less likely you wll enjoy life, (v) The more afraid you are to fail, the more likely you will fail, (vi) The more you fail, the more likely you will succeed, (vii) The harder you push for anything, the harder it will be to achieve, (viii) The more available anything is, the less likely you will want it, (ix) The more you learn, the more you realize your ignorance, (x) The more you argue with spouse or boss, the less likely you will win, (xi) The more you try to come close, the farther you will get pushed, (xii) The more choices you will have, the less satisfied you will be with any of those, (xiii) The more connected you get in social network, more isolated you will become, (xiv) The more you talk about your flaws, the more perfect you become in society's eyes, (xv) Peace is the only battle worth fighting for, (xvi) In order to better understand the world, you will have to turn away from it, (xvii) The more the people talk about something, the less they know about it, (xviii) The less someone cares about others, the less he cares about himself, (xix) the more you hate a trait in others, the more likely you are avoiding it in your own self, (xx) Those who can't trust others can't be trusted, and finally (xxi) No matter what it is, at the end of the day, the less is always the more.

After a long time of hot and dry weather, the first rain of the season creates an exquisite fragrance in the air - an earthy scent that permeates around us, refreshing our minds and uplifting our spirits. I love that amazingly wonderful sweet scent. Did you know that this elegant fragrance has an interesting name too? It's called "Petrichor"; a word derived from Greek language, i.e. "Petra" meaning ‘stone’, while "Ichor" is the fluid that flows in the veins of the Gods - per Greek mythology. Petrichor is surely a divine perfume that must be a gift from Supreme Power. If my life were a fragrance, I would like her to smell like Petrichor.

After all, life is really simple; we ourselves create the circumstances that complicate it.

Author Unknown

After the long period of hot and dry weather, comes the first rain shower of the season creating an exquisite eloquent fragrance in the air - an earthy sweet smell that permeates and floats all around us, refreshing our minds and rejuvenating our lives. I love that powerful seductive scent - emanating from the long awaited union of soft and gentle rain drops with dry thirsty ground, and instigating an instantaneous intimacy in the air. Interestingly, this elegant enchanting fragrance has a name too. It's called "Petrichor"; a composite word derived from Greek language - comprising "Petra" meaning ‘the stone’, and "Ichor" meaning 'the fluid that flows in the veins of the Gods' as per Greek mythology. In my view, Petrichor is surely a divine perfume that must be a gift from Supreme Power. If my life were a fragrance, I would surely like her to smell like Petrichor.

Alcohol is the anesthesia by which we endure the operation of life.

George Bernard Shaw

All swallows all. Life must eat life to survive.

Dejan Stojanovic

All the time we hear "Love is Blind." But it's not true. Blind is the Infatuation, while Love is All-seeing and All-accepting amazing aspect of life. Love is Strong and Permanent vis-a-vis Infatuation that is Fragile and Transitory. In my view, Love is like Silk, which is delicate, gentle, illuminating and soft - and yet so strong that no force on earth can tear it apart easily. Love is accepting each other for good qualities as well as flaws, and for strengths as much as weaknesses. Love is working together through the challenges of life, and overcoming obstacles with Synergy. I would summarize Love in three T's: Trust, Transparency and Teamwork.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

All this will not be finished in the first 100 days. Nor will it be finished in the first 1,000 days, nor in the life of this administration, nor even perhaps in our lifetime on this planet. But let us begin.

John F. Kennedy, inaugural address, 1961

Always be Honest and Truthful, even though it might hurt or create conflicts. Be in sync with your personal values, and make choices based on what you believe, and not on what others like. Live the life with Honesty, Truth and Integrity.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Always be true to yourself, committed to your dreams, in sync with your passions, and sincere with your values. Never dilute any of those with the expectations from others that you don't agree with. The moment you make compromises, you'll lose your identity, your character, and most importantly, your purpose in life....you may continue to exist but only physically, from that moment onwards.
