Jonathan Livingston Seagull

Jonathan Livingston Seagull - This is the latest book I read and one of the most valuable book I have. Its one of the best inspiration I read in the recent times. A small story written about a Seagull who(I admire the character.. so I will use who..not which) wants to do something more than a ordinary gull can do.

Jonathan wants to do more than searching stale fish for food. he wants to learn all kinds of flying techniques and over a period of time he becomes good at aerobatics.
His parents are worried about him.And after some time his Community banishes him and he flies to a far cliff.
He wants to show what a Gull can do with his limitations.But No one listens him. He lives there for quite long time and he has become master in his skills.

From this Part... I learnt that we all have much more capabilities then we think and we are not here simply to earn for life.. We are here to do something more learn new things..explore the knowledge..

On one fine day, he flies to a flock, where every gull wants to learn flying techniques. The Elder there teaches Jonathan various techniques how to stay calm ( I think I forgot exactly what Jonathan learnt here) and earn to be free..

From this part... I learnt that we should love everyone around and stay focused and learning is a continuous process..not a one day affair.

After some time.. he decides to go back to his own flock..with some of his students.
He starts teaching his students in front of his own flock gulls and no one listens them..about what they speak. after some time some of the younger Gulls comes to them and starts learning flying techniques. over few months most of the gulls joins them.. and starts learning flying....

From this part... I learnt that we should give back something to the society where we born and brought up.
This is what some of the Good NRI's and Industrialists are doing now a days. I should also do something to my Village Aruvankattuvalasu where I born and brought up.. .

This is one of the book everyone should read...
Must to have at Home Library.....................
you should go through to know more about the novel

Tale of why Japanese are always on the find of the best....

Today Morning a Nice Article has been forwarded by a friend of mine ( my First Boss). I feel that it deserves to be posted in my blog.

Happy Reading....

Tale of why Japanese are always on the find of the best....

The Japanese have always loved fresh fish. But the waters close to Japan have not held many fish for decades. So to feed the Japanese population, fishing boats got bigger and went farther than ever. The farther the fishermen went, the longer it took to bring in the fish. If the return trip took more than a few days, the fish were not fresh.

The Japanese did not like the taste. To solve this problem, fishing companies installed freezers on their boats. They would catch the fish and freeze them at sea. Freezers allowed the boats to go farther and stay longer.

However, the Japanese could taste the difference between fresh and frozen and they did not like frozen fish. The frozen fish brought a lower price. So fishing companies installed fish tanks. They would catch the fish and stuff them in the tanks, fin to fin. After a little thrashing around, the fish stopped moving. They were tired and dull, but alive.

Unfortunately, the Japanese could still taste the difference. Because the fish did not move for days, they lost their fresh-fish taste. The Japanese preferred the lively taste of fresh fish, not sluggish fish.
So how did Japanese fishing companies solve this problem? How do they get fresh-tasting fish to Japan? If you were consulting the fish industry, what would you recommend?

.....As soon as you reach your goals, such as finding a wonderful mate, starting a successful company, paying off your debts or whatever, you might lose your passion. You don't need to work so hard so you relax. You experience the same problem as lottery winners who waste their money, wealthy heirs who never grow up and bored homemakers who get addicted to prescription drugs. Like the Japanese fish problem, the best solution is simple. In the Early 50's, L Ron Hubbard, the Founder of Scientology, observed: "Man thrives, oddly enough, only in the presence of a challenging environment".

The Benefits of a Challenge: The more intelligent, persistent and competent you are, the more you enjoy a good problem. If your challenges are the correct size, and if you are steadily conquering those challenges, you are happy. You think of your challenges and get energized. You are excited to try new solutions. You have fun. You are alive!

How Japanese Fish Stay Fresh: To keep the fish tasting fresh, the Japanese fishing companies still put the fish in the tanks. But now they add a small shark to each tank. The shark eats a few fish, but most of the fish arrive in a very lively state. The fish are challenged.

Instead of avoiding challenges, jump into them. Beat the heck out of them. Enjoy the game. If your challenges are too large or too numerous, do not give up. Failing makes you tired. Instead, reorganize. Find more determination, more knowledge, more help. If you have met your goals, set some bigger goals. Once you meet your personal or family needs, move onto goals for your group, the society, even mankind.

Don't create success and lie in it. You have resources, skills and abilities to make a difference." So, put a shark in your tank and see how far you can really go!

LIFE is beautiful

Life is beautiful.. Isn't it??.
It took long time for me to understand the truth.Leave me...
This blog is to praise the Movie Life is Beautiful and to request everyone who ever reads this blog to watch that movie.
This is the nicest movie .. i have ever seen.
Its about a life of a Jew Man and his family. He is a jolly man lives with his friend and old uncle. He falls in love with a beautiful school teacher and gets married to her. he runs a small Book shop and lives happily and gets a nice kid.
When they are living happily,suddenly they will be taken to a camp controlled by German Army and both of them will be doing factory work. This Guy will hide his son somehow in the camp and tried to save his Son's Life. He will be telling his son as this camp life is a Game.. once they score 1000 points ..he will get TANK as first prize. His Son will listen to what ever this says. He will hide under the Beds ..where they sleep in the night....Before his marriage he used to work in a hotel as waiter. where He met a Doctor..who will become his friend. In the Camp. the same doctor will come to check the Jews. The Doctor will help this Guy.. and makes this to work as a waiter in the camp. He will hide his Son there too. He will be continuing this for some months. Every time his Son asks a Question.. he will tell him that so far we have scored 600 points.. if you hide from the Cops u will get 40 Additional paoints..some things like this ..he will be keep on telling to his son. One day the war is over. That night he wants to find out his wife and along with her he wants to escape.That time he asks his son to hide in a small wodden box and tells him that we have 940 points..if you hide here safely till tomorrow morning we will get 60 points and we will win and " you should come out only when there is calm outside". He will try to find out his wife and caught by the German Army. He will be shot dead. The next day morning..he will come out when there is no sound and standing infront of the building.
now a American Tank Comes and this ltttle boy is just standing there withour fear. the small boy shouts that We WON..We WON..
he will be taken by the soldier and on the way he finds out his Mother.
There too he happily sayd that We Won.. We Won with out knowing that its a lie his father told him and with out knowing that his father is killed..

That is the sacrfice a father did to his Son..

Tears were coming out of my eyes when the movie ended.
What a touching story????.The man takes his life very humorously what ever the problem he faces...he brings up his son so well with diginity and honestly.

This is the time to remember my father for all the things he did to me.
For the boy... His father saved him from life tragedy and for 5 to 6 years. but my father did till i was 20. He had dedicated his entire life for me and my sisters.
Do we remember him?. Are we repaying him??.
Are we really making the difference in our lives he wanted???
I dont know the answer. I don't think Except money I got nothing I wanted to get...

- Guru.

How do I ??

Hi Readers,
I do read many blogs, in which they share their ideas or provide Info about something new or they write valuable comments about something.
But I feel that Iam the only Guy who writes something waste.
Ok .. let me come back to the waste stuff I wanted to write......

Some time back I wrote about good habits. Forget about it. I got a much bigger problem in the life.
I don't know how to control anger???. That is my Biggest Enemy in what ever things I do . I wasted many years in anger and frustration.
Need to find some solid way to control all these. We will see how it goes...

one more thing... I have decided to learn Guitar from this Saturday and would like to see how good Iam in learning something new.
