Love is our law and peace is our language

We learn more in the process of fighting against all odds
(through them we discover the essence of life!)

Education is our treasure and character is its measure

Character and character alone is our ornament

Experience is our school of learning

Faith is our foundation

Inner soul is our director

Hard work is daily tonic for our progress

Self-realization and consciousness are goals of our spiritual life

Happiness is our drug that improves health

Love is our law, peace is our language, and humanity is our religion

Mother is our GOD and the GOD is present in everyone of us

Nature is our best friend; let's take care of Her always

Hurdles are our lessons

Prayers are the paths to heaven

Patience, politeness, understanding are our strengths
....
....
Jai motherIndia

Namma Bengaluru

Day by day, our city (every city, for that matter!!) is becoming more and more insecure.

You can find countably finite examples in news papers to justify the above statement. Here are some important precautions:

* Always carry your ID card and address proof with you.

* When you are roaming in the city, be alert and take necessary precautions against theft, pick pocketing, etc.

* Do not display your jewelery and valuables and invite trouble.

* Keep a watch on your belongings. In your absence, make sure that they are taken care by a person well known to you.

* Book your tickets through an authorized travel agency.

* Park your vehicle only at places notified or marked for parking. Park it at a place in such a way that your parking will not obstruct other moving vehicles or pedestrians.

* While shopping buy only genuine goods from well known shops and obtain bills.

* In an emergency, notify police (Phone: 100)

Wishing you a very enjoyable and safe travel in the city,

LSNBSQUARE.

Forests: Lungs of the mother Earth



Forests are the lungs of the mother Earth. Not only do they purify the air we breathe, forests store carbon, help in maintaining global climate as well as the most unique plant and animal spices and support a diversity of life forms.

LOSS ! LOSS! LOSS!

* Hundreds of acres of forests are being cleared and burned.
* Water resources are drying up and tons of soil is lost due to erosion.
* Flash floods and landslides are causing loss of life.

There is no more time to waste as time is fast running out.

The time to act is now – much like DO or DIE situation.

Go ahead and plant trees (life-givers and savers) !!

****

DO YOU KNOW??

* It is believed that an area of forest 4 times the size of Swiss disappears every year.

* Earlier in the last century there were about 50000 tigers in mother India, but there are now
less than 2000!(similar disappointing numbers for other animal species)

* 40% of the land on mother Earth was covered with forest last century... now it is less than
30% and decreasing fast.

* Forest lands in developing countries have declined to half the original.

* In Srilanka the elephant population has been reduced to zero.



* Deforestation causes 20% of all carbon pollution causing global climate change.

* Almost 50% of the logging in forests is illegal.

* A minimum of 140 plant and animal species are condemned to extinction each day.

* About 30 million acres of forests are cleared globally every year!.



* For every plant species that becomes extinct unto 30 dependent animals and insects die.



* A 50 year old tree generates oxygen, shelter for birds and animals worth a billion $ over its life time.



* 50% of wood cut worldwide that is made into paper products.

****

Prayers are not enough!!

Everyone of us should do something to control the loss of green-life; And hence, our lives.

Jai Green!
Jai Forests!!
Jai mother Earth!!!

And may there always exist in all peace and peace alone.

Om peace, peace and peace to us and all beings!

విజయం నీదే మిత్రమా! ఎల్లప్పుడూ !



ఓ మిత్రమా!
నా మనో నేత్ర ప్రతిబింబమా!
రేపన్నది మాపన్నది
తలపులకు చిక్కనిది అర్థంకానిది
దిగులుపడక ప్రతిక్షణం
పదుగురితో ఆనందాన్ని
పంచుకొంటూ పెంచుకొంటూ
కష్టాలను చిరునవ్వుతో
వదిలించుకొంటూ
అలుపెరగని బాటసారివై
జీవితాన్ని సాగించు.
విజయం నీదే మిత్రమా!
ఎల్లప్పుడూ!

A man with awesome 'spin' in hands and 'humanity' at heart!



INspirINg cricketer and human being:

source: http://www.priu.gov.lk/news_update/Current_Affairs/ca201007/20100723kudos_to_murali.htm


No single cricketer has meant more to the fortunes of his national side than this magician with a perennial smile to Sri Lanka. Before his debut, Sri Lanka managed two wins in 38 Tests. Muralitharan has since orchestrated 54 wins, claiming more than 40 per cent of his team's wickets in victories. In deciding that his farewell Test would be at Galle against the world's Number 1 Test side, he sportingly set himself the challenge of having to bag eight wickets to scale Mount 800. He did exactly that — and set up an emphatic win.

****

*A small video dedicated to murali fanz:
video

****

But his influence has transcended cricket. He has borne the responsibility of representation with lightness, humour, and simplicity, remaining a conciliatory presence in an often strife-torn nation. Not content with being a symbol, Murali has embraced humanitarian work. He has driven the Foundation of Goodness's project to rebuild more than a thousand houses spread over 24 villages that were hit by the tsunami in 2004. He has also committed himself to a project in Mankulam that seeks to use sport as a medium for alleviating poverty. The cricket world will salute one of the greatest bowlers of all time. Society will cherish this Tamil of recent Indian origin as an upstanding human being whose very presence has united people.

SaiNaTh's SnT run:)

A BIT painful but a GIGA BYTE enjoyable.

BCoz....

I to the I to the S to the C..IISc. It was in IISC:)

Long live Science
Long live Technology
Long live Green
Love live Cool Breeze
Long live IISc!!

Each and every step in life is painful from a femto level(small) to EXA level(BIG). No one is exception from this.

A MOTHER carrying a baby for 9 months(the 9-LIFE) is a good example.
May GOD bless all MOTHERS with all energy existing in HIM.


IF YOU BEAR THE PAIN FOR GOOD CAUSE, YOU WILL BE REWARDED WITH GAIN AND APPLAUSE.

Relax 'N' See With Broadband Smile:)

When our vision is normal, we may not notice the wonder of our eyesight;
But when it deteriorates, suddenly we become aware of the importance of perfect
vision.

Q. Is there a natural way to improve defective vision? and
restore it to normal?

The answer is, fortunately, a STRONG YES, says
Dr.R.S.Agarwal,
a pioneer in the field of holistic eye care.

****

Because everyday life strains our eyes, the eye muscles get weakened and
our vision declines.
But just as other muscles of the body can be strengthened through proper
exercises, so the eye muscles can become strong and healthy again.

By gently relaxing stretching and strengthening the eye muscles, we
improve their health and thus improve our vision.

****

The School for Perfect Eye Sight at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Pondicherry, India, uses combined naturopathy with the Bates method (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bates_method) and the integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo. The school aims at bringing to his patients
perfect eye sight in a natural way.

NEED FOR A GREENER GLOBE

A few ways to reduce carbon footprints:

* Ring in the new light
- From traditional bulbs to CFLs
(Huge saving-more than 10,000 MW of electricity!)

* Contribute to some greenery
- Let us cultivate a garden or at least maintain a few
plants around our house/apartments

* Drive electric vehicles - When you are traveling long
- This keeps the air clean and works out economical.
For smaller distances the cycle or a brisk walk is helpful for body fitness

* Turn towards the SUN for energy-By going solar.
Choose solar power to heat water. Try the solar oven. Switch on solar lantern
when there is power failure of load-shedding

* Turn of Computers - When you stop working
When you leave the computer active in standby mode, there is consumption
of power and an increase of carbon emissions.

* Buy only energy saving appliances
Look for sticker with RED*s.
The more no *s indicates lower power consumption.
With washing machines always wash a full load to get more clothes cleaned
using the same power
Ask and buy Eco-friendly washing powder.

* Buying a new house or apartment
Go for Eco-friendly and save 30% energy costs.

* Say a strong NO to plastic bags
Go to shopping with your own cloth bag.

* Go gentle on paper, use email
Reduce use of paper consumption

* R-CUBE
RECYCLE-REPAIR-REUSE
This magic cycle can fetch great results.

For better results, spread out these to as many of your mighty friends,
neighbours as possible - to create much better and healthy environment.
