Surviving 24 hours a day at Rs.12

Can you survive 24 hours with an amount of Rs.12 to cover all your needs. Yes, you could as a challenge for a few days but not a week or month and never for a
lifetime. After all what can you get for Rs.12 in a Metro, not even the following:-
a. A plate of Dosa or chat at a road side stall.
b. A few cups of coffee/tea
c. Take a minimum distance ride in an autorichshaw in Bangalore.
d. Buy an handkerchief from the roadside vendor (leave alone clothing)
e. Buy a branded gel pen.
This list is endless but do you know that as per the latest survey report of the
National Sampling Organisation, this is the daily income of 20% of our country and of this they spend Rs.7 on food. When people migrate to urban areas this amount increases to a princely amount of Rs.19. We in the Metros feel that a few 100 point fall in the Sensex is the end of economy, a few paise drop in US$ Dollar value as disaster for our softwarebusinesses and a few rupee increase in fuel prices as the vanishing of our incomes.
Let us realize that they are many people who pray that their daily income was the price we pay for 1 litre of petrol. This is the silent majority which is largely
harmless and peaceful. Just imagine if all these people took to crime to increase
their incomes, how fearful our lives could become.

Three poems for Valentine Day

Billion of stars may be waiting to twinkle in the radiance of your eyes!
Millions of words may want to intensify their meaning by describing yourpersona!
Lakhs of Ornaments may be wanting to enhance their charm by decoratingyour beauty!
Hundreds of eyes might want to bless their sights by feasting on your beauty!But only one Heart will beat for your well being always, that’s mine!Take Care, Until We Meet Again!
*******************************
UR Missed AlwaysUr missed always, in all seasons and for all reasons!
In the harsh summer, the pleasantness of Your face and twirl of thosehairs, made my days cool!
In those dark monsoon days, the twinkle in Your eyes, brightened my days!
In those chilly wintry days, the liveliness of Your touch, kept me warm!
During those spells of anger, Your courage made me see reason!
In the depth of sorrow, Your soothing words and solace helped me stayafloat!In the spring of happiness, your radiance and vivacious smile made theoccasion extra special!
Ur missed always, in all seasons and for all reasons!******************************************************************
Why do I love you?

More than the beautiful face, it is the refreshing simile that it gives!
More than the twinkling eyes, it is the far-reaching vision that they are able to have!
More than the sweet voice, it is the sweet and heartfelt words that come out!More than your beauty, it is the compassionate heart in it!
