1422- 6 Best Ever Msg For LIFE.

1. Everyone makes mistakes in life, But that doesn't mean they have to pay for them the rest of their life. Sometimes good people make bad choices. It doesn't mean they're BAD... It means they're HUMAN!!
2.Truth of life : we make them cry who care for us, we cry for them who never care for us & we care for them who will never cry for us.
3. Mistakes are painful when they happen but years later a collection of mistakes is called experience which leads you to success.
4. life is like a piano. white keys are happy moments & black keys are sad moments but remember both keys are played together to give sweet music.
5. Dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go, be what you want to be. Because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.
6. Thoughts lead on to purpose, purpose leads into actions, actions form habits, habits decide character and character fixes our destiny...

1421- Beauty and India's contribution!

Jaipur girl Koyal Rana has won the coveted Femina Miss India 2014 title at the 51st edition of the beauty pageant, defeating 24 other gorgeous finalists from across the country.

The 21-year-old diva will now represent India at the Miss World 2014 beauty pageant this year, hence joining the elite league of beauty queens like Aishwarya Rai, Sushmita Sen and Priyanka Chopra, who brought laurels to the country by winning the international titles.

Koyal says after winning the Femina Miss India 2014 title her next target is Miss World.

Reita Faria was the first Indian and Asian to be crowned Miss World in the year 1966.

Now dubbed as the 'most beautiful woman in the world', Aishwarya Rai was just another face when she first set out to compete with the best at Miss World 1994.

Apart from winning the biggie, Aish also won the Miss Photogenic award and Miss World Continental Queen of Beauty − Asia & Oceania. And why not!

Having starred in Hollywood films such as 'Mistress of Spices', 'The Last Legion' and 'Pink Panther 2', it's only fair to call Aishwarya the global face of India.

 It was 'THE' moment for beauty queen Sushmita Sen when the name for Miss Universe 1994 was announced.
She was the youngest of the 77 contestants and won a million hearts with her ideologies in
life.Boasting of a very healthy mix of beauty and brains, Sushmita answered the final question - 'What is the essence of a woman?' - with utmost care. She said, 'Just being a woman is God's gift. The origin of a child is a mother, a woman. She shows a man what sharing, caring and loving is all about. That is the essence of a woman.'

At 18, Priyanka didn't do a great job with the final question which eventually won her the Miss World crown in 2000.
She was asked: 'Who do you think is the most successful woman living today and why?' To which she answered: 'There are a lot of people I admire, but one of the most admirable people is Mother Teresa, who has been so compassionate, considerate and kind.'

Mother Teresa passed away on September 5, 1997.
Apart from winning the prestigious Miss World title, Priyanka also bagged the Miss World Continental Queen of Beauty - Asia & Oceania title.Priyanka immediately shifted course to Bollywood and went on to feature in box-office hits such as 'Andaaz', 'Mujhse Shaadi Karoge' and 'Aitraaz'. She is now one of the most sought after actresses, thanks to films like 'Fashion' and 'Barfi'.

 With a mind and face like hers, it was a given she would win the Miss Universe title in 2001. Post her win, she was appointed as the UNFPA Goodwill Ambassador in 2001.
The gorgeous Lara then moved to Hindi cinema and was an instant hit. Although her film career took a nose dive after the first few years, she managed to stay in the news.
Lara tied the knot with tennis star Mahesh Bhupathi. They have a daughter - Saira.

The terrific trio.

The year 2000 was a glorious year as it saw 3 beautiful faces represent India on global platforms. Lara Dutta charmed all when she won Miss Universe, while Priyanka Chopra did us proud with her Miss World title. Dia Mirza, arguably the most beautiful face we have ever seen, wasn't behind as she bagged the Miss Asia-Pacific title with much ease.
Dia holds the distinction of being the first Indian to win the Miss Asia Pacific title since 1973. The first being evergreen actress Zeenat Aman.

Diana Hayden is the third Indian to have won the Miss World crown in 1997,after Reita Faria (1966) and Aishwarya Rai (1994).
Unlike her peers, Diana moved to London to study acting. She stayed away from Bollywood but did appear in TV reality show 'Bigg Boss 2".

Aditi Gowitrikar might not have pursued a film career seriously, but she did a good job of winning the Mrs World title in 2001.
Did you know she is also a doctor? Multi-faceted, we say!

Those were the best days!
Two years after Diana Hayden's win, Yukta Mookhey won the Miss World title in 1999.
Unlike some of the other Miss World winners, Yukta couldn't strike gold in movies and so stayed away from media glare until recently when she filed a domestic violence complaint against her husband in July, 2013.

Manasvi Mamgai won Miss Tourism International in 2008.


This Bangalore chick, Nicole Faria, did us proud when she won Miss Earth 2010, and became the first Indian to win the title.

Himangini Singh Yadu won the Miss Asia Pacific World title last year.

1419- A very Touchy story:

"husband forgot to wish her on his Wife's birthday. He came home late at night from the office .....

His wife shouted: How would u feel if u don't see me for next few days?

He couldn't believe his luck. He replied at once.'' Wowww.....That would be great..!''

Monday passed & he didn't see her.

Tuesday he didn't see her
& Wednesday passed too
On Thursday the swelling was better & he could see her from the corner of his left eye...


1418- जिंदगी:-

ईश्वर का दिया कभी अल्प नहीं होता;
जो टूट जाये वो संकल्प नहीं होता
हार को लक्ष्य से दूर ही रखना;
क्योंकि जीत का कोई विकल्प नहीं होता।

जिंदगी में दो चीज़ें हमेशा टूटने के लिए ही होती हैं :
"सांस और साथ"
सांस टूटने से तो इंसान 1 ही बार मरता है;
पर किसी का साथ टूटने से इंसान पल-पल मरता है।

जीवन का सबसे बड़ा अपराध - किसी की आँख में आंसू आपकी वजह से होना।
जीवन की सबसे बड़ी उपलब्धि - किसी की आँख में आंसू आपके लिए होना।

जिंदगी जीना आसान नहीं होता;
बिना संघर्ष कोई महान नहीं होता;
जब तक न पड़े हथोड़े की चोट;
पत्थर भी भगवान नहीं होता।

जरुरत के मुताबिक जिंदगी जिओ - ख्वाहिशों के मुताबिक नहीं।
क्योंकि जरुरत तो फकीरों की भी पूरी हो जाती है;
और ख्वाहिशें बादशाहों की भी अधूरी रह जाती है।

मनुष्य सुबह से शाम तक काम करके उतना नहीं थकता;
जितना क्रोध और चिंता से एक क्षण में थक जाता है।

दुनिया में कोई भी चीज़ अपने आपके लिए नहीं बनी है।
दरिया - खुद अपना पानी नहीं पीता।
पेड़ - खुद अपना फल नहीं खाते।
सूरज - अपने लिए हररात नहीं देता।
फूल - अपनी खुशबु अपने लिए नहीं बिखेरते।
मालूम है क्यों?
क्योंकि दूसरों के लिए ही जीना ही असली जिंदगी है।

मांगो तो अपने रब से मांगो;
जो दे तो रहमत और न दे तो किस्मत;
लेकिन दुनिया से हरगिज़ मत माँगना;
क्योंकि दे तो एहसान और न दे तो शर्मिंदगी।

कभी भी 'कामयाबी' को दिमाग और 'नकामी' को दिल में जगह नहीं देनी चाहिए।
क्योंकि, कामयाबी दिमाग में घमंड और नकामी दिल में मायूसी पैदा करती है।

कौन देता है उम्र भर का सहारा। लोग तो जनाज़े में भी कंधे बदलते रहते हैं।

कोई व्यक्ति कितना ही महान क्यों न हो, आंखे मूंदकर उसके पीछे न चलिए।
यदि ईश्वर की ऐसी ही मंशा होती तो वह हर प्राणी को आंख, नाक, कान, मुंह, मस्तिष्क आदि क्यों देता?

1417- Life is a train journey !

on a train...
with its stations...
with changes of routes...
and with accidents !

We board this train when we are born and our parents are the ones who get our ticket.

We believe they will always travel on this train with us.

However, at some station our parents will get off the train, leaving us alone on this journey.

As time goes by, other passengers will board the train, many of whom will be significant - our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of our life.

Many will get off during the journey and leave a permanent vacuum in our lives.

Many will go so unnoticed that we won't even know when they vacated their seats and got off the train !

This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, good-byes, and farewells.

A good journey is helping, loving, having a good relationship with all co passengers...and making sure that we give our best to make their journey comfortable.

The mystery of this fabulous journey is -We do not know at which station we ourselves are going to get off.

So, we must live in the best way - adjust, forget, forgive, and offer the best of what we have.

It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to leave our seat... we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.

The result of any of our actions, depends on the decisions we take! What we are now, is the net result of all the decisions we had taken earlier! Decisions turned into actions and implemented with determination lead to results!

1415- Jest joking! --- Mothers know! (Domain knowledge)

👪 There was a family with one kid.
One day the mother was out and dad was in charge of the kid, who just turned three.

Someone had given the kid a little 'tea set' as a birthday gift and it was one of his favourite toys.

Daddy was in the living room engrossed in the evening news, when kid brought Daddy a little cup of 'tea', which was just water.

After several cups of tea and lots of praise from father for such yummy tea, kid’s Mom came home.

Dad made her wait in the living room to watch the kid bring him a cup of tea, because it was 'just the cutest thing!!'

Mom waited, and sure enough, the kid comes down the hall with a cup of tea for Daddy and she watches him drink it up, then she says to him, 'Did it ever come to your mind that the only place that baby can reach to get water is the toilet commode ?'

....Mothers know!!!

Domain knowledge is very important!!! Else your supplier will trick you..😅😅😅

1412- Jest joking! : - ) --- The Haircut..

One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut.
After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, 'I cannot accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week.'

The florist was pleased and left the shop.

When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a 'Thank You' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you , I'm doing community service this week.'

The cop was happy and left the shop.

The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a 'Thank You' card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.

Then a politician came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week.'

The politician was very happy and left the shop.

The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen politicians lined up waiting for a free haircut.

And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the politicians who run it.
