Am really proud to be an Indian, The country full of respect, fame, richness, and lots of Glory that’s this great Nation has and the most important thing for which I want to be born as Indian again and again is the great culture it has.

According to me this things i.e.) respect, fame, culture of a nation is the true “feeling of self-respect or pleasure in something by which you measure your self-worth; or being a reason for pride”.


This is important to each and every individual of the nation. I feel that first every citizen of his respective country should fell proud to be a part of the nation then only he feel proud of himself.


The person who doesn’t respect his country or feel proud of his nation then he is not worthy to live in this world as a human no matter whoever he a richest man or the leader or any one. I feel he is totally ZERO not a HERO to his country and to his fellow citizens.


Oops I think am going in to different topic, No no its little different but much related to a true citizen or self respect (nations respect).


I just wanted to bring your attention to the hottest matter in the world of cricket…….. ya you people are really a experts Because got the topic yea it’s the matter of sledging..


First it started as aggressiveness in the game by both the players then it took a huge image and started affecting individuals, now it’s in a situation where the two nation’s relationship can be affected by this.


Game is game and it should be played like game not like a war against each other.

Am really proud to be an Indian……….do you know why am saying this?

Because even after so much of problems The IPL offered place to Aussie players to take part as Its players not only that they were also given equal respect and importance as all other players, Isn’t this amazing and shows the reality of a great nation like India which is Known for its Culture, hospitality etc towards their guests……


Am really amazed even I got angry with behavior of the Aussie players but after that realized that after all they are also human and this shows the true culture of the nation and the culture of the people……………………………………………….


What do you people feel about it Am waiting for the great thoughts from the Experts from whom I have started learning a lot I think so hhhhhehhheee

A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said: “I am blind, please help.” There were only
a few coins in the hat. A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words.

Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy. That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were. The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, “Were u the one who changed my sign this morning? What did u write?”

The man said, “I only wrote the truth. I said what u said but in a different way.”

What he had written was: “Today is a beautiful day & I cannot see it.” Do you think the first sign & the second sign were saying the same thing?

Of course both signs told people the boy was blind. But the first sign simply said the boy was blind. The second sign told people they were so lucky that they were not blind. Should we be surprised that the second sign was more effective?

Moral of the Story:

Be thankful for what you have. Be creative. Be innovative. Think differently and positively. Invite the people towards good with wisdom.

Live life with no excuse and love with no regrets. When Life gives you a 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 1000 reasons to smile.

Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear. Keep the faith and drop the fear.

Don’t believe your doubts and doubt your beliefs. Life is a mystery to solve not a problem to resolve. Life is wonderful if you know how to live

Every thing is changing as the value of money changes, yesterday there was an AUCTION, no matter they are player or what, but they are.


The IPL launched by the BCCI (Board of control for cricket in India) in India is

A clear show of Money and Muscle nothing else, the people from IPL or BCCI

Wants to be in headlines always, they want to talk only about them every where because of which they played the great drama of auction yesterday.


There are so many things in this world to be done like the other sports in India (like hokey football athletics), Why don’t the BCCI give some money to Improve this kind of sports in India to grow our STATUS in the sports.


If they really want to make the shorter form of cricket famous like in other countries, why don’t they join hand with ICL and do the job. Any way it will be they same. (If the BCCI is not money minded) they could have done it.


But they are money minded and really want to get as much money as possible from it.

And the great personalities those who bought the teams, why don’t they did this towards other sports why to only cricket because from cricket only they can get their money

Back in double.


Ok lets go deeper this people Making a range of cricketers by giving them so much of money but why they or the government doesn’t looking the other sports personalities like

(Viswanathan anand, Leander paes, Dhanraj Pillay, Narain Karthigeyan, Pankaj Advani)

They are only given attention when they wins some cup otherwise they are nothing.

But at this point I want to thank these great peoples that they have achieved there goal without any kind of support from there respective sports body or organization formed by the government.

And I also want to thank not only me the whole India will be thanking the media to take care of all the sports, otherwise we don’t know we will be knowing about the sports like golf or snooker etc which are not seen in India at one time.


But when we deeply go into this matter why all the Importance is given to cricket as the king of all sports is Because of the people, ya we really pay more concern to cricket than the other games, if we really give our support to all the other games AM sure the respective bodies will really make their game also interesting and so on.


At last the power is in our hand lets try hard and make the difference, its our responsibility to take part in every act of importance lets do the best and hope for the result.

Ya he was Bapu for his true followers living in the Great Sabarmati Ashram. Ya he was Gandhi-ji for the people who were fired to sacrifice their mortal selves for an independent country. And Mahatma Gandhi, for all of us who see him as a political genius of the modern world ( It doesn’t matter that you are a Indian or not to follow the foot steps of the great Human ) . A very simple, honest man, who developed an universal philosophy in politics against violence in every form of human society.

He was too simple to be taken seriously, yet was the most serious person in the political field at the time of British Raj. This man was too ordinary with his body looks but was the leader for whole of India; he was also one among very special social motivator for all the Indians. That was the one thing which fired “All the Indians” to walk strait with him. His Aim was to treat all the Indians alike. He refused to accept divisions in Indian society. A devoutly religious man Gandhi-ji was, he yet denounced all the caste divisions the Hindu religion carried with it in society. A devout Hindu himself, he respected the Moslem religion equally. And also all other religions the human race held firm.

He was very passionate about his use of “non-violence” against the British rule not only against them but all, as a very strong weapon, social tool in to reach Swaraj. And he practiced it with utmost care and purity. He walked into prisons with the same complacency he walked into his own Ashrams, no anger or vengeance against the British, against the White people.

That I see as Gandhi-ji’s whole philosophy as a true leader was. No divisions should be among humanity and no violence among the humans, to achieve the independence and liberation. Man should be wise to achieve what man wants with equal respect to all and which is his own property, without violently reacting against adversaries. He had no enemies and no solders to guard him.

But for me, His philosophy of a Swaraj was unimaginable, in that he only saw people working to move towards the basic needs of life. Working to suppress human wants and desires that would not be met with what they could manually produce for themselves as small, spiritual communities. Sabarmati Ashram was his life time experiment of the new social order he was committed for. His astute principles of self discipline for an altruistic being, was beyond the Indian majority, who wanted a new, independent India.

At last If Bapu ji was not there in indian politics at that time. What would happen to India, Ya i agree there was lots of people, some were more involved in freedom struggle than Gandhi-ji. But the truth was that they were not able to reach till the end.

Thats what i feel what do you Think Of It.
