Wish you a Happy and Peaceful New Year!

Thich Nhat Hanh

Thich Nhat Hanh, Peace Is Every Step

If in our daily lives we can smile, if we can be peaceful and happy, not only we, but everyone will profit from it. If we really know how to live, what better way to start the day than with a smile? Our smile affirms our awareness and determination to live in peace and joy. The source of a true smile is an awakened mind.

I find that people here don't smile often or enough. Most seem preoccupied with their worries or thoughts. No one seems to be here and now. Everyone is someplace far away. Why is it so hard to be in the present moment? (and this question comes from someone whose brain is multi-tasking, processing a zillion thoughts and ideas at this particular :-)

I love the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh. 

Smile and live in peace and joy ! :)

Abandoned Puppy

Found a little female puppy abandoned nearby. What kind of wicked people can leave a pup to die on the street? Human cruelty - when will it ever end? My brother said,'' people can do this to little children so don't fret, this is just a dog''. She couldn't even drink milk from a bowl.....was so hungry when we finally managed to feed it.

Good news - we have found her a new home! :) My brother and sis-in-law ran around to animal shelter and to a pup adoption center since we found her this morning. Luckily one of his work mates wanted to adopt a puppy and was looking for a pup! The little abandoned puppy has found a good home! In this short time this little beauty also got a name - Leona! (psssstt...named after Leona Lewis)

So to this idiot who threw this few months old puppy (brown/black) @ some road in viman nagar on 12/12/10 morning - she is going to be with better human beings than you - lucky her!
