I met him through a mere call,

Till I knew tat my whole life will become a ball.

Slow and steady something kept changing,

Till I knew my entire existence is blooming.

The most benevolent human for me,

Till date it remains to be.

He took me out of adversity,

Alleviated my pains and elevated my felicity.

May be it was God's will,

To gift me this miracle,

The rare sensation of love,

A zeal, A yearning, An adulation, An allegiance.

Then came a blow,

Miles away he was sent to flow.

His love became the wind,

Which touches my face whenever I need.

I request Him never to change,

Want him always the same.

I miss him terribly,

My heart cries intolerably,

Pleading him to come back to me,

So that i can love him eternally.

Earth Hour 2009: Turn Those Lights Off

Earth Hour started in Sydney in 2007 when 2.2 million homes and businesses turn off the lamp for one hour. Earth Hour is a WWF initiative to invite individuals, businesses, governments and communities to turn off the lights for an hour as the action in support of climate change. There are 1508 large and small cities in 80 countries participated.

Earth Hour in 2008 developed into a sustainable global movement with 50 million people turn off the lights. Global Landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House and the Coca Cola billboards in Times Square all stood in darkness.

Earth Hour 2009 targets 1 billion people turn off their lights as part of a global voice. This campaign is different from the political campaigns that full of money politic. Some volunteers of Earth Hour programme even ask permission to reproduce brochures, banners and posters on the cost of their own!

VOTE EARTH is a global call to action for every individual, every business and every community. A call to stand up and take control of the future of our planet. More than 74 countries and territories they have pledged to support VOTE EARTH during Earth Hour 2009, and this amount increased everyday. We all have a voice, and every vote is counted. Together we can control the future of our planet, for generations to come.

I am going to SWITCH OFF today..... are you supporting this global cause?

I request all my friends and fellow humans to do so..!!

Save earth..!!


Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room. One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs. His bed was next to the room's only window. The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back. The men talked for hours on end. They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation.

Every afternoon when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.

The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside.

The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.

As the man by the window described all this in exquisite detail, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine the picturesque scene.

One warm afternoon the man by the window described a parade passing by.

Although the other man couldn't hear the band - he could see it. In his mind's eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.

Days and weeks passed.

One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep. She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.

As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.

Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside.

He strained to slowly turn to look out the window beside the bed.

It faced a blank wall. The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window

The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.

She said, "Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you."


There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations.
