Happy Valentine (Birth) Day

What is this Valentine (Birth) Day? Is this about the birth of the Valentine's day ? or is it about the birthday of the person so called Mr. Valentine ? or else what ? Guess what, its my 27th Birth Day. Believe me.......27th !!! I'm look younger than that ne......feels like 16. Time flies. Non stop, second by second....... year by year. Cant believe im this much old :)

Now time is for the valentines day. Don't wanna say anything just look at this quote. U can understand everything..........I love u Nim

The most wonderful of all things in life, I believe, is the discovery of another human being with whom one's relationship has a glowing depth, beauty, and joy as the years increase. This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvelous thing, it cannot be found by looking for it or by passionately wishing for it. It is sort of a Divine accident.

Cracked Pots - who? me or you?

Yesterday I found this story laid in my inbox. Really touching and worth to mention. Check whether you can feel the same...............

A water bearer in China had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole which he carried across his neck. One of the pots had a crack in it, while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water. At the end of the long walk from the stream to the House, the cracked pot arrived only half full. For a full two years this went on daily, with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots full of water to his house.Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments,perfect for which it was made. But the poor cracked pot wasashamed of it's own imperfection. And miserable that it was able to accomplish only half of what it had been made to do.

After two years of what it perceived to be a bitter failure, it spoke to the water bearer one day by the stream. "I am ashamed of myself, and I want to apologize to you. I have been able todeliver only half my load because this crack in my side causeswater to leak out all the way back to your house. Because of myflaws, you have to do all of this work, and you don't get full value from your efforts," the pot said.

The bearer said to the pot, "Did you notice that there were flowers only on your side of the path, but not on the other pot's side? That's because I have always known about your flaw. So Iplanted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back, you've watered them. For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate the table. Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this beauty to grace the house? "

Moral: Each of us has our own unique flaws. We're all cracked pots. But it's the cracks and flaws we each have that make our lives together so very interesting and rewarding. You've just got to take each person for what they are, and look for the good in them. Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape. Remember to appreciate all the different people in your life.

Independence Day - Sri Lanka

Today (Sunday the 4th of February), Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka celebrates her 59th anniversary of regaining independence from the British Colonial rule which began in 1815.

Sri Lanka has been known, from ancient times, to several civilisations of the world by a variety of the words by a variety of names. The Greeks called her "Tabrobane", the Arabs named her "Serendib", and the old colonial powers of Portugal, the Netherlands and Britain, called her "Ceilao", Zeylan" and "Ceylon" respectively. Sri Lanka is an ancient indigenous name, meaning the "resplendent island".

During the post-independence period, sri Lanka developed into a state with strong foundations, whose standards of literacy (89 per cent), education, health (life expectancy 72 years for females and 69 years for males) and nutrition, are among the best in the developing world. UNDP and UNICEF rate Sri Lanka as one of the best among developing countries on the Human Development Index (HDI) basis.
