Nowadays,I find a lot of news about some experts pondering over the imminent economic scenario and the headlines reading:

Inflation is likely to remain elevated despite sluggish growth....onion prices hiked....petrol prices cut but that of diesel soar....and so on.

This resulted in a question in my mind? Well what do we afford in today's world? What is the thing that truly costs nothing and ought not to even in the future?

The answer I thought :)

I express my apologies for drifting from such a serious discussion to something as trifle as a.......

Yes smile! Although a simple form of expressing warmth and joy it has become less common recently. A smile can have a positive effect upon our interactions with anybody no matter who he/she is.
Well regarding the solutions to the above problems: Let those who are good at it take the decisions and side-by-side let us also think over what we can do to reduce inflation.

Enjoy : )


  • A Smile is a curve that sets everything straight--Phyliss Diller

  • It only takes a split second to smile and forget, yet to someone that needed it, it can last a lifetime. We should all smile more often. --Steve Maraboli

  • Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.--Thích Nhất Hạnh 

  • It takes a lot of energy to be negative. You have to work at it. But smiling is painless. I’d rather spend my energy smiling.--Eric Davis (former MLB star and cancer survivor )

  • A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside.--Deni Waitley

  • Peace begins with a smile.--Mother Teresa

I don't know whom to thank for the following quotes:

  • A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it. Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away. Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.

  • It takes a lot of work from the face to let out a smile, but just think what good smiling can bring to the most important muscle of the body... the heart.

  • Smile, it lets your teeth breathe.

You must have heard this one before:
  • It takes seventeen muscles to smile and forty-three to frown.

Support can do wonders!

There are times in life when we are so happy with ourselves and our life that we overlook the needs of others.On the contrary,when as a matter of fact adversity tests us we realize the importance of support,from our near and dear ones,from all those who are strong enough to provide us with the same.

Support is a great thing I believe.When you are sad,feeling lonely and then someone comes,cheers you up,gives you a shoulder to rest upon or at least sympathizes with you,doesn't it boost you up?

In sports,they have a group of people called Support Staff who look upon the needs of the sport-persons and keep them all set to perform to their potential.This support staff is everywhere sometimes subtle and sometimes conspicuous.    

So friends,value your support system and yes do help others as long as you are in a position to do so,who knows what lies in the future?

Few quotes depicting the importance of support:

  • No man is an island--John Donne

  • Was it you or I who stumbled first? It does not matter. The one of us who finds the strength to get up first, must help the other.--Vera Nazarian

  • A dwarf standing on the shoulders of a giant may see farther than a giant himself. --Robert Burton

  • No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another. --Charles Dickens

Handwriting and your personality...

A lot can be revealed by our handwriting.Handwriting is nothing but a reflection of our mind,our moods and even our physical health.My handwriting differs a lot from what it was a few years back but still there are some traits which are permanent.Graphology or handwriting analysis is something which has always been of immense interest to me.Do try to find what your handwriting says about you.A few quotes on handwriting by some famous people:

This one by Gandhiji was specifically used by my teacher in school to inspire me to improve my handwriting,although it is still the same if not worse.Thank God,these posts are not hand-written :)

"I am still paying the penalty of another neglect. I do not know whence I got the notion that good handwriting was not a necessary part of education, but I retained it until I went to England. When later, especially in South Africa, I saw the beautiful handwriting of lawyers and young men born and educated in South Africa, I was ashamed of myself and repented of my neglect. I saw that bad handwriting should be regarded as a sign of an imperfect education. I tried later to improve mine, but it was too late. I could never repair the neglect of my youth. Let every young man and woman be warned by my example, and understand that good handwriting is a necessary part of education."

--From 'My experiments with truth'

    These are some from
  • Man′s beauty is in the beauty of his writing.

  • Perfection of handwriting needs proper education, regular exercises, and purity of the soul.--(Yakut Mustasimi)

  • Writing is half the knowledge.--(Muhhamad the Prophet) 

  • Calligraphy is a kind of music not for the ears, but for the eyes.--(V. Lazursky)

  • There are two types of Pain in this world:Pain that hurts you and Pain that changes you--Anonymous

Entrepreneur quotes..

Few years of hard and smart work and rest of your life your efforts pay off!

Entrepreneurs are the ones who set up businesses and turn ideas into reality.Some like Steve Jobs,Bill Gates,Dhirubhai Ambani, have succeeded and reached milestones which the rest can only dream of.What gives them the inspiration and motivation to continually and consistently hit the bull's eye?

This quote by Bill Bradley justifies their success according to me:
Ambition is the path to success.Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in.

There is no substitute to hard work is something which I have been hearing since my childhood but I  feel that in today's fast-paced world Smart Work is needed.If one does hard work it surely pays off  but you have got to know have a vision of where you want to reach and what will be the result of your efforts.The knowledge of when to continue something and when to change plans has to be cultivated through experience. 

Some quotes and pics that caught my attention:
Short and Sweet!

Inspiration and innovation are the key to any entrepreneur's success.

Peter F. Drucker, "The Father of Modern Management" has quoted in this regard:

"Innovation is the specific tool of entrepreneurs, the means by which they exploit change as an opportunity for a different business or a different service. It is capable of being presented as a discipline, capable of being learned, capable of being practiced. Entrepreneurs need to search purposefully for the sources of innovation, the changes and their symptoms that indicate opportunities for successful innovation. And they need to know and to apply the principles of successful innovation."

Do you have these in you?

Body language matters!!

Body language was there even before speech was invented.It is the most natural form of communication that any living being might possess.Even plants and animals communicate via their body language.There are sometimes subtle – and sometimes not so subtle – movements, gestures, facial expressions and even shifts in our whole bodies that indicate something is going on. The way we talk, walk, sit and stand all say something about us, and whatever is happening on the inside can be reflected on the outside.There are times when we say something but our body says something else.So why not have a look at some quotes which stress on the need of being aware of what you communicate (almost unconsciously) to others?

The amazing effect that your body language can have on your communication can be aptly described by the following quotes:
  • The body says what words cannot.--Martha Graham

  • I can't just tell the guys I want the ball, I have to do it with my body language. - LaMarcus Aldridge(Basketball player)

  • What you do speaks so loud that I cannot hear what you say--Ralph Waldo Emerson

  • Electric communication will never be a substitute for the face of someone who with their soul encourages another person to be brave and true. -- Charles Dickens

  • Body language is a very powerful tool. We had body language before we had speech, and apparently, 80% of what you understand in a conversation is read through the body, not the words. -- Deborah Bull

  • Get in touch with the way the other person feels. Feelings are 55% body language, 38% tone and 7% words. -- Unknown

  • I speak two languages, Body and English.-- Mae West

  • When the eyes say one thing, and the tongue another, a practiced man relies on the language of the first. -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

  • Our non-verbals govern how other people think and feel about us.--Amy Cuddy

  • The body never lies. - Martha Graham
