Speed Dial 1......Calling..God

Often when we get into troubles or when we face those wobbly moments in our lives, we tend to panic and run helter skelter for help.At least that is what I do many a times. The impulsive freak that I am,I tend to do things without even thinking before doing them.
I call up every possible friend (by that I meant close ones) on my phone book and ask him/her to pray for me. Later when things calm down, I wonder where my faith was, when I asked someone else to pray for me and why I didnt pray myself first! Is it that God listens to someone else's prayers and not mine? Of course not. Its just that I failed to trust Him enough and have faith in my prayer.
I realised that before asking outside for help, we need to look inside for it.For within you rests He, who is greater than any power on this earth!It is not wrong to ask someone to pray for you coz I believe there are times in one's life when the faith is so low that one doesnt feel like praying.But its just that you need to pray to Hi…

A few good men...
On our recent visit to Chennai (which was amazing by the way),my friends and I came across a bunch of incredibly modest people.These blokes weren't the ones with high posts but they took pride in the job they did-they served us food at the dinning hall.They wore a pleasant smile on their faces that never seemed to fade away.Just a few words-"good morning madam","How is the food?"-and that was enough to make us feel at home.
There was however this one person who stood out amongst those people.Trust me, I have
never seen a man so humble as he was.His job was to collect our plates when we finished having our meals at the table.We never had to tell this man to pick up our plates.As soon as we finished eating,he would be standin…

Take me away...somewhere far away....

I always like Vodafone ads...be it the the ones with the pug and the little girl, the zoo zoo ads or the recent one(record your busy tone if you cant take calls)
But I love this one ad in particular, where the guy waits in the lift for the girl.And I love the song that plays in the background...

"Blue skies and open air
There's a place for us away
Take me away somewhere far away
Beyond the sun
Take me away somewhere far away..."

That's how I exactly feel right now.Just want to go away somewhere.(Beyond the sun would also do or maybe on the moon...or the rainbow....if possible!)Not becuase I hate my life where I am!Of course not!But just feels like travelling to a different place.Discover new cultures and meet new people and just be a free bird!
Anyway...check out the video if you havent already seen it....
(And if anyone knows where I can find the entire song, do let me know.)
