Atal Raho, Atal Bano : Stay resolute, Be resolute

Atal Bihari Vajpayee (Former Prime Minister of India) 25 December 1924 – 16 August 2018

The legend who inspired me to hold the pen and make it sing.  For me…the best way to give a tribute to him was to write a poem.  After all, it is only fitting to write a poem about a great poet and an equally great man!

It has been a week since I have been constantly thinking of him. These three days have especially been hard for me as somehow I couldn’t shake the thought of — “what if we lose him?!”

That it would finally be the end of an era after Mr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam, who died in 2015. (Former President of India) 

And then today I read about his passing. I was taken by absolute shock because I wasn’t even aware that he had been admitted to the hospital…

WE NEED TO TALK !

There has never been a better time than now. And it has taken eons for us to reach where we are today.

Dalai Lama’s Amazing Prediction to know yourself

Check this amazing prediction about your personality!

Years before it came to be associated with the Dalai Lama, this ‘personality test’ had no claim of authorship.  This personality test wasn’t actually created by His Holiness The Dalai Lama. However, what fascinated me most was how accurate I found the results, myself.
Read this Personality Test  to see if it works for you. This is fun to do, but you have to follow the instructions very closely. Answer the questions as you go along. Do not cheat.
There are only four questions and if you see them all before finishing you will not have honest results. Go down slowly and do each exercise as you scroll down.
Don’t look ahead. Get pencil and paper to write your answers as you go along. You will need it at the end.
