Health is Wealth

At last i have made a decision.It was a painful one.To join a gym and shed pounds under the instruction of a trainer.I have never worked hard to shed kilos in the past.My father admitted me to a karate school when i was in my third class.It was so boring and exercises were hard.On exams i was failing and at 9 years i got yellow, green and blue belt.Funny because they pass you after couple of failures and in the part where fighting occurs, the elders forgive the tiny kid.Parents who admit their kids when they are tiny tots shouldn't do it unless your son is so genuinely interested and talented in the sport.In my case i had no relationship with sports and physical activity.I hated the physical education teacher and his period at school.I was more cared about the dirt that sticks on my clothes doing outside PT at school.
I didn't like to play Basket ball and failed miserably in throwing a short put,And the arrogant PT teacher who never knew to respect a human being.He found it fun…

The love of money is the root of all evil

There is a promise i try to keep in life.To respect money as it deserves to be and not to love it so hard.I know that money is like heroine to a human being.It can degrade the goodness of a man.People steal or kill to get or retain money.Another thing people do is that they entangle it with relationships.We indians practise the f****ing practice of dowry which is illogical and absurd.Dowry means a present or gift given to bridegroom after he marries the girl from a family.The family gives their hard earned money so that the girl is taken cared well by the groom's family.Those who battles for dowry interprets this as a gift given to the girl.But in most of the cases, the money ends up getting wasted by the men and the girls have no say in that.When people mix relationship with money, you can expect problems and calamity there.How can you trade love between husband and wife, parents and children etc with money?Problem is not with the money.It is with the people who use it and love i…

Maneesh's Adventure With Shares

Image
I heard first about shares from my father who invested in paper stocks of Barmer Lawrie Limited which was converted to Kochin Refineries Limited and then to Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited.All i had an idea was that by buying shares they send you some letter which is written annual report.In the annual report, a form for proxy voting was there.If we go to Kochi, we get free lunch in buffet style.This was the idea i had in mind when i was a kid.
Later my maths teacher, Mr M.G Daniel who has got a beautiful signature and ability to create instant comedy taught me about shares and debentures when he was taking me tution in the eight standard.I learned it well and read again and got interested.I was interested in Maths and the chapters that taught simple interest and compound interest.But i didn't pursue any.
A person named Tomas (aged minimum 20 years more than me), ran an automobile spares shop in the 'ugly' (i hate this place , mainly the people) village where i live. He…

Good Message from the Lion King

There was a disney show on dooradarshan tv on sundays morning during my childhood.Since we get only doordarshan during those days through our tv antenna, ofcourse it is terrestrial transmission.They were showing english cartoons dubbed in hindi.Uncle Scrooge and his three nephews with a duck face used to entertain me those days.Also micky mouse and two aviator bears were there.I have fantacised building a holiday cottage near the lakeside with a wooden platform protruding to the lake.They got an airplane tied to the platform floating in the lake.The two seater plane took Ballu the bear and his assistant, another tiny bear to the skies.Don't really remember more about this.Just have a hint that Scrooge was a miser and had a treasury filled with dollars and gold and his three menance creator nephews are the heirs.
Now back to Lion King.Lion king was released in 1994 as an animated cartoon disney movie.They promoted it via this program called DisneyWorld.I got a sticker of micky mous…
