An important thing one must teach to children within their age of 10

Writing this after listening to a video of Dr. Sri. Garikapati Narasimha Rao garu about nature of Swami Vivekananda since his childhood days. Swami Vivekanada has a nature of giving to needy almost from his age of four. If he finds someone without cloths, he used to just give away cloths that he was wearing. One day his mother made him to stay in his father’s room with an intention that he would know limits of giving. Since his father’s room is full of books, she thought he cannot do anything. But he found long coats of his father hanged…

Impact of Dr. Sri. Garikapati Pravachanam

For a few weeks now, I regularly listen to Pravachanams (speeches) of Dr. Sri. Garikapati Narasimha Rao garu (in Telugu); I learn something from each speech. I wish I should have started listening to his speeches earlier; better late than never. In one of his recent speeches, something touched me indeed and I thought sharing here may benefit at least someone in this world and I shall feel utmost happy if this happens to someone I know. In his recent speeches, Shri. Guruvu garu (Shri. Garikapati) mentions that he got a call from a couple who live in the United…

As we know, we are going through difficult times due to COVID-19 and major hit on global economy. It’s unfortunate that many businesses have come to a halt. Yes, it’s temporary – in fact, everything in this world is temporary! Like everyone, I’m also seeing decline in my portfolio but I’m optimistic that situation has begun to improve.

Be cautious about cab booking service on MakeMyTrip.com

Yesterday, we have made a cab booking for airport transfer using MakeMyTrip app and we have received car details via text message and WhatsApp. A driver has arrived about 30 minutes earlier than scheduled; we felt happy for being punctual.

When we went down, we have realised there is no car with the number mentioned on the message sent to us. We have…

Still Congratulations, Indian Cricket Team!

Yes, India lost in semi finals against New Zealand during Cricket World Cup, 2019; but still I congratulate each and every player of the team. Is 238 for a opening team consider a great score? that too for a semi final? certainly not… so that witnesses our team has done a great job in fielding. Yes, we lost 3 wickets for 5 runs, I blame climate conditions for that and not our team. Very same players including KL Rahul have made century plus in the last game. Even though, we lost 3 wickets for 5 runs, M S Dhoni and…

Cricket World Cup: All teams are playing quite well!

This is the second time (first was in 2008), I’m following Cricket World Cup. I am thrilled to see that all teams are playing with zeal and doing their best to make their country proud of them. All teams are putting such an effort that even if they loose, no one will blame them. As far as India is concerned, except the match on 22nd June, 2019 against Afganisthan, they have played all the matches very well. Rohit Sharma has made centuries in all of the matches except with Afghanisthan. During match with Afghanisthan, all the players have wasted a…
