“Cheap, Idiotic, Useless, Immature, Fake, Has no Content, Gas, Sentimental, Flirt, Talks a LOT” – Some of the adjectives that were used by people for me between my age 20 & 35. And by a total of some 200 people spread across those years. If I were to have let my FORCE die down because of those few hundred who had no idea why I did what I did; – I would not have MET the next lot of million people who have today made me who I am by believing in my ways of life!

- My friend’s marriage is in ICU. Reasons – Normal marriage issues which just refuse to get sorted. However, my friend accepts his personality gaps & tries to work on them but his wife inspite of hazaar counsellings does not put in the sufficient effort to save the marriage. She thinks she is doing all that she can. But her ALL is far far away from the desired cut off. She will just not own up her mistakes. Rather operate from ALL brain but NO heart & defend herself vehemently and egotistically.
