  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    We don't get upset simply because someone lies, cheats and breaks our trust. In my view, we become upset because we can't trust that person (and folks like him/her) ever again. It's the violation and loss of our innocence that hurts us deep inside, for a short duration at least. Yet, when we rise from that freaky fall, we discover that we're stronger than ever before. It's true that what doesn't kill us often makes us stronger. So strange as it may sound, we should be thankful to that deceiving person, who offered us the golden opportunity in disguise - to eliminate our weakest links and to strengthen ourselves beyond our normal limitations. Cheers!

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    You laugh, and the world laughs with you. You cry, and you cry alone. You sing, and the mountains would echo you. You sigh, and it's lost in air. You rejoice, and the world will seek you. You grieve, and the world will walk away. You can be in sync with the world, its people and nature around you. You are the origin, and you are the center of your happiness and well being. So be thankful and enjoy life, each and every day as it comes to you. Cheer up, my friend!

  4. Evan Todd:

  5. Mark Stone:
