Shimon Peres

Shimon Peres, who stepped down as Israel's 9th president Thursday, is the last of Israel's founding fathers and a hawk-turned-dove whose international aura will be sorely missed by many Israelis.

People come and pass

I have seen so many people coming, staying and passing on my journey of life, and just small part of them we still sort of keep in touch and just several become my best friends.

There was a time when I was totally confused that whether I should spend so much time dealing with the people you meet and trying to know them so that I could possibly make them become my friends, for most of the people you meet in your life, such as classmates, schoolmates or colleagues and all, once you two…

If you are not motivated in your life/work, you will be dull and success doesn't come easy. If you are motivated, you will work hard and your hard work will earn you success. 



So motivation is directly related to your…

The Importance of Learning English

Have you ever wondered why is everybody going crazy about learning English? Don’t you think things will be a whole lot easier if you will just focus on your native language? Why learn English when you can communicate in your local language at home? Why is English so important that learners are willing to spend time and money just to be fluent in it?

MY DREAM WORLD

DREAM WORLD

Last night it was raining.  The sky was getting illuminated intermittent  lightening. Power was fluctuating, and finally it was gone and I got dc (disconnected) from my friend on net. I left the table with an inner gloom and went to the balcony. It was raining heavily with thunder. I let the downpour come upon my body just to try to wash off all the fatigue of the day. There was darkness outside, just the rays of a few emergency lights peeping through the windows…

Books from around the World

I find this to be an interesting idea.  As a bibliophile, I find the idea intriguing, and I'll try to find some of these books to add to my reading "Bucket List".

This is from a news article I read.  The link follows to her website / blog and I am copying and pasting her suggested list.  It looks like one must click each country name to see which book she chose to read however. As Time permits I'll try to get a short list of the books she actually wrote and highlight them in Orange as…
