Here goes the story..

There is a family where the parents are the doctors and they had a son named Hithendran.

On 09/24/2008, he took his father's bike for seeing his friend and while returning he met with an accident. The people who were there know him and admitted him at chengalpattu hospital. Then they informed his parents and they took him to Teynampet Apollo hospital. The doctors examined him and said that his brain has lost all his senses and there is no way to give him life. Without controlling the sadness the parents understood the fact and they decided to donate his organs to the people.

First, his eyes were given to Sankara nethralaya, then his kidneys were given to apollo hospital for transplantation and atlast here comes the final everheard miracle. They decided to give his heart to a 13 years old girl named Abirami.
But within 30 mins that heart should be transplanted; They need to go 20 Kms and that too in the Chennai traffic and doubted whether it will happen or not. Then the doctors called traffic police and asked their help and they prepared the ambulance with A/C, following which the doctors operated out the heart from their son's torso and kept in an ice box and ran towards the ambulance.

When they came out the boy's father saw that ice box and cried like anything. The doctor who carried that box was on his wheels that he didn't even see the ambulance which is waiting outside and he entered the police car which was waiting and asked the person to go to the Cherian hospital soon without even realising that it was the Assistant Commissioner and interestingly the police official without seeing his status jumped to drivers seat and drove the car to its maximum speed.

Every signal traffic got alerted and left the way for this car and at last within 15 mins the heart was taken to the doctors in Cherian hospital where it was transplanted to Abirami.

Really heart touching isn't it ?.

By the way do you know the meaning of the name of the boy who died ( Hithendran -The Lover of Heart ) and yes, now he has stolen everyone's heart.

Hats off to his parents, the professionals and the officials who helped their sacrifice to do something towards a noble cause.

Honesty is the best policy

  An emperor in the Far East was growing old and knew it was time to choose his successor. Instead of choosing one of his assistants or his children, he decided something different. He called young people in the kingdom together one day. He said, "It is time for me to step down and choose the next emperor. I have decided to choose one of you."

  The kids were shocked! But the emperor continued. "I am going to give each one of you a seed today. One very special seed. I want you to plant the seed, water it and come back here after one year from today with what you have grown from this one seed. I will then judge the plants that you bring, and the one I choose will be the next emperor!"

  One boy named Ling was there that day and he, like the others, received a seed. He went home and excitedly told his mother the story. She helped him get a pot and planting soil, and he planted the seed and watered it carefully. Every day he would water it and watch to see if it had grown. After about three weeks, some of the other youths began to talk about their seeds and the plants that were beginning to grow.

  Ling kept checking his seed, but nothing ever grew. 3 weeks, 4 weeks, 5 weeks went by. Still nothing. By now, others were talking about their plants but Ling didn't have a plant, and he felt like a failure. Six months went by, still nothing in Ling's pot. He just knew he had killed his seed.

  Everyone else had trees and tall plants, but he had nothing. Ling didn't say anything to his friends, however. He just kept waiting for his seed to grow.

  A year finally went by and all the youths of the kingdom brought their plants to the emperor for inspection. Ling told his mother that he wasn't going to take an empty pot. But honest about what happened, Ling felt sick to his stomach, but he knew his mother was right.

He took his empty pot to the palace. When Ling arrived, he was amazed at the variety of plants grown by the other youths. They were beautiful in all shapes and sizes. Ling put his empty pot on the floor and many of the other kinds laughed at him. A few felt sorry for him and just said, "Hey nice try."

  When the emperor arrived, he surveyed the room and greeted the young people. Ling just tried to hide in the back. "What great plants, trees and flowers you have grown," said the emperor. "Today, one of you will be appointed the next emperor!" All of a sudden, the emperor spotted Ling at the back of the room with his empty pot. He ordered his guards to bring him to the front. Ling was terrified. "The emperor knows I'm a failure! Maybe he will have me killed!"

  When Ling got to the front, the Emperor asked his name. "My name is Ling," he replied. All the kids were laughing and making fun of him. The emperor asked everyone to quiet down. He looked at Ling, and then announced to the crowd, "Behold your new emperor! His name is Ling!" Ling couldn't believe it. Ling couldn't even grow his seed. How could he be the new emperor?

  Then the emperor said, "One year ago today, I gave everyone here a seed. I told you to take the seed, plant it, water it, and bring it back to me today. But I gave you all boiled seeds, which would not grow. All of you, except Ling, have brought me trees and plants and flowers. When you found that the seed would not grow, you substituted another seed for the one I gave you. Ling was the only one with the courage and honesty to bring me a pot with my seed in it. Therefore, he is the one who will be the new emperor!"

The Law of Attraction

Universal Laws govern the Universe. They are basic principles of life and have been around since Creation. They are laws of the Divine Universe. Universal Laws apply to everyone, everywhere. They cannot be changed. They cannot be broken.

The Universal Law of Attraction (LOA) is the most powerful law in the universe. It is simple in concept but practice is necessary. But once you "get it", there is no looking back! It will be part of you forever. The simplest definition of this law is "like attracts like." Other definitions include:

You get what you think about, whether wanted or unwanted. The Law of Attraction is neutral. All forms of matter and energy are attracted to that which is of a like vibration. You are a living magnet. You get what you put your energy and focus on, whether wanted or unwanted. Energy attracts like energy. Everything draws to itself that which is like itself.

"As a man thinks in his heart, so is he." Proverbs 23:7

Here are some ways of expressing the Law of Attraction:

Birds of a feather flock together

Like attracts like

Whatever you want wants you

What you sow, you reap

What you put out you get back

What comes around goes around

The Law of Attraction is fun to learn and use because you are always watching, waiting expectantly for your desires to manifest. You can deliberately use this law to create your future!

Universal Law of Attraction

This universal law is working in your life right now, whether you are aware of it or not. You are attracting the people, situations, jobs and much more into your life. Once you are aware of this law and how it works, you can start to use it to deliberately attract what you want into your life.

How do you create your desires using the powerful law? There are just a few basic steps.

1. Get very clear on what you want

2. Visualize and raise your vibration about it

3. Allow It

You must be very clear on exactly what your desire is. Focus on it. Give it all your positive energy. Feel good!

A major factor behind this Universal Law is the energy and vibrations of our emotions and feelings. Any thought you may have, when combined with emotion, vibrates out from you to the universe and will attract back what you want.

You can leave all the details to the universe. Let the Universe figure out the method of delivery, when you will receive it, etc. Now all you have to do is Allow It. Sounds easy, right? This can be the most difficult part to do. Be doubt-free. All you need to do is expect it. Act like you already have it. Be grateful.

And always take inspired action. If something feels right, then go ahead and do it. Taking action is an important step. That is it! You can always be expectant of good things, your desires. Feel good knowing your desire is on its way to you. Always expect your desires. Expect miracles.

How many unsuccessful people have done the above before blaming the fate and other factors ?

The Taunting Memories

there were days when I longed to be with her
fought ways to get hold of the place in her heart
got there amidst losing a bit here and there
went along for few years
then came mysteries and enigmas
no wonder what the reasons were
at the end of the day the true love was camouflaged
though could blame others for the heartbreak
still im responsible for this cause

chose the wrong way to run away from the problems
as predicted strange love kept following me
yielding to temptations but only after a while
fell into the trap yet once again
since then couldnt recover from that pain
though tried to fool my own thoughts
was successful in keeping my cool
only until I saw the beauty of the nature
she was filled all over the places
im still struggling to regain the peace
falling like a prey to the cruel love

my life is now ruined at this stage
there are certain ways to get back in line
definitely not into the social world
where spirituality is my only possession
taking me to the preferred destination
thought love was the only true thing in life
felt i was wrong, later realised the nature of love
yes, the love is everywhere in this world

i see it in every child's eyes,
those in the poor men's smile
while the sun rises early in the dawn
also while it sets later in the dusk
I see the essence of love everywhere
though an inch of strong desire
edging out to be with my lost love

leaving the options wide open
i get going with what i have been offered
tears rolling down my cheek
tearing apart the walls of my heart
bleeding down the soul
what am i still looking for
a friend for my life
a companion till my grave
yes, a soulmate forever ! ! !

Teachers and their Graceful Colours

The types of teachers in this world are many. Some teachers are strict, some are lenient and some others are in the middle way, neither lenient nor strict. In this write up, let me tell you about different kinds of teachers and various teacher's categories.

In general the teachers can be classified into the following categories:

• Friendly Teacher
A friendly teacher acts like a friend for his/her students. Teacher friend combines both the guidance of a teacher and the understanding of a friend. We all, at some point of time, aspire for an understanding teacher. Such a teacher acts like our friend, philosopher and guide. If we have our teacher as our friend, we will never wander from the true path of our life. Every teacher should have some friendly traits in him/her. Such a teacher is more close to the students and a better educator.

• Lenient Teacher
A lenient teacher is one who is not very fussy. An easygoing teacher takes things as they come. They do not crib about things such as doing homework on time or sitting quietly in the class, etc. But this does not mean that you can do anything in the class of a pampering teacher. There are limits to leniency shown by a teacher. We should not take undue advantage of such a teacher. If the teacher is not being too harsh, we should respect that and behave properly.

• Perfectionist Teacher
An ideal teacher is one we respect from our heart. He/she acts, as a guide to the students, but at the same times does not pushes them too much. A perfect teacher motivates the students and boosts their morale. He/she tries to encourage the students and refrains from criticizing them. Such a teacher prefers to give positive motivation to students. His/her comments are always constructive. The perfect teacher is our friend, guide, educator, confidante, all rolled into one. One such teacher builds the whole life of the students. Everyone in this world should get an ideal teacher. They won’t have to look back in their lives ever.

• Strict Teacher
A lenient teacher is one who is not very fussy. An easygoing teacher takes things as they come. They do not crib about things such as doing homework on time or sitting quietly in the class, etc. But this does not mean that you can do anything in the class of a pampering teacher. There are limits to leniency shown by a teacher. We should not take undue advantage of such a teacher. If the teacher is not being too harsh, we should respect that and behave properly.

• Funny Teacher
A funny teacher is like a god sent to the students. Such a teacher always wants to see his/her students smile. They try to bring a smile on the lips of their students. They are not clumsy. Rather, they are witty. A humorous teacher lifts the sadness out of his/her student's life. They are like stress-busters in our life. They help us in forgetting all our sorrows. However, it does not mean that this kind of teacher is not serious about studies. He/she does encourage his students, but in the healthy way. They teach the students without burdening them. They are not fixated on deadlines. But, they do not also tolerate a playful attitude towards studies. Such teachers lead to the development of students in a healthy way.

All the classifications for teachers are based on some typical personality traits of the teachers. For ex - some teachers constantly criticize the students, some act like friends, some are fun to be with and so on. The above categories will provide with some insight into the teacher's personality.

The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.
At this part of life all I can say is I had lot more of such inspiring teachers than the good teachers and I take this opportunity to express my gratitude for my teachers on this Teacher's Day. Though they are a kind of "Thank You" messages for these angels, I really mean what I say. For those I have given a hard time, I do regret for my actions and those were never my intentions, as you teachers were the best ones I have had in my learning life. Wherever I may go in my life, I will always remember that I had an excellent guide in the form of all teachers, like You. I found guidance, friendship, discipline and love, everything, in one person. And to call it either being lucky or fortunate I had the chance of spending my part of life with a bunch of people like you. Without you guys, I would have been lost.

Thank you all teachers for guiding me, inspiring me and making me what I'm today. I will always be thankful to you for all the hard work and efforts you have put in, for educating me. You are not only my teacher. Rather, you are a true friend, philosopher and guide, all moulded into one person. I will always be grateful to you for your support. Though practically, I may not say it always in my life. But, I mean it whenever I say it. Thank You Teacher for all the things you have done for me. No matter how old I grow up, I will be always your humble student and will cherish those memories where I was fabulously treated like an infant by your graceful heart.

I could conclude this article by quoting few phrases which remind me the value of the teachers every time I see these which are still sticking on to my wall

The teachers’ purpose is not to create students in his or her own image, but to develop students who can create their own image

The best teachers teach from the heart, not from the book.

A good teacher is like a candle - it consumes itself to light the way for others.

A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops

Those who educate children well are more to be honored than parents, for these only gave life, those the art of living well

A gifted teacher is as rare as a gifted doctor, and makes far less money
