Pretty songIt was that lovely day,
I felt it is beautiful and indeed it was.
Hopes in the eyes, smile on the face...
Still it lingers, but at a distant there is an echo,
I can't hear the clear voice
It is fading, fainting.
Walked a long path, sometimes feeling way is too short
and sometimes feeling when it will end.
But as a happy soul, I keep on going looking
somewhere someone something ...
still some treasure to explore.

Are you happy?If you are with happy person, then probably you are going to be happy too and I think that is true. And also any strager can make us happy too.
Happiness is contagious: study
People with the most social connections -- friends, spouses, neighbors, relatives -- were also the happiest, the data showed. "Each additional happy person makes you happier," Christakis said.
Strangers may cheer you up, study says
How happy you are may depend on how happy your friends' friends' friends are, even if you don't know them at all.

And a cheery next-door neighbor has more effect on your happiness than your spouse's mood.

Obama JourneyRecently I came across this. Have you see this?
Sonal Shah denies links with VHP, RSS
Several Indian-American groups have protested the appointment of Sonal Shah in Obama's transition team, claiming she is closely associated with VHP and warned against Hindutva "infiltration" into the power centres of the US society.No matter who says what, it is true that no one else is more disciplined,more patriotic and proud of their root and culture. And those who talk about Gujarat, they should ask why the chief minister of Gujarat is so popular and done so many developments to the state.

That's the message from New Hampshire education officials, who announced plans Oct. 30 for a new rigorous state board of exams to be given to 10th graders.

The nation's unemployment rate bolted to a 14-year high of 6.5 percent in October as another 240,000 jobs were cut, far worse than economists expected and stark proof the economy is deteriorating at an alarmingly rapid pace.

FaithHow much I believe in faith? I never asked that question to myself. But I strongly agreed on some things that my faith has given me. Still I remember the line someone wrote in my school journal saying "Faith is the force of Life". May be I am not the one who chants and prays deeply, but I do believe in my yogic quest for life.
Yesterday, my doorbell rang, some one's at the door. There were two young nice looking guys holding bible standing in front of me. They started to ask about faith related questions. At first I thought may be they are for Thanksgiving donation. They started to tell me about the Jesus and Christianity. After listening to their story I asked "what you do?" The answer was "we are missionaries". They wanted to come on Sunday to solve(if we had any) our problems and give answers looking in Bible. My answer was no, because as a Hindu, my religion is so diverse that I get all answers in my faith.
