Being a VEGAN

I guess many of them are hearing the word VEGAN for the first time.... hahahahaa
I too belonged to the same category untill today :)
We all know that either its vegetarian or non-vegetarian. This term VEGAN symbolizes the following and it got definition.
Veganism is a philosophy and lifestyle which "seeks to exclude all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals and the environment." (wikipedia)
I got this very interesting piece of information from internet. Just gathered some pictures and putting them here for display. I realized the importance of saving the environment - Especially when we have done so bad to it and showed indifference all these days.

From the above picture, I think we can give our contribution by just practising and by thinking wisely.
There are also some diet rules which WE can do follow and be a VEGAN.

I guess its high time we change our lifestyle and be good to our environment.
At the end if we protect it... it shall protect us!!!!
Being a vegan we should refrain from using leather products, honey etc.

Once upon a time - Jhumpa Lahari

Last week I was talking to one of my friend Hema.
She was referring to her profound interest in novels and short stories. She gave me link for some of the short stories by Jhumpa Lahari. I took the printout of the story and read it at home...
The name of the short story is in the title :)
Its a very touching story by her... Once upon a time
The story is about a teen-age girl and her crush on Kaushik who comes to US from India. He confides some secrets with her. The narration is awesome...

I also read her book Interpreter of maladies... its a collection of short stories... each story is different in its own way and very closely resembles to our present life... it may not be exactly related to our life.. but our surroundings. Her stories leave some impressions in our hearts and make us think for a while.

Expectations... its such a nice word to hear and use. Its effects are realized only when one feels much about it...
Most of the time we expect only from our near very good frens...

we expect them to understand us
we expect them to know what we think of them at that moment and all the time
we expect them to be very close with us and don't mind for silly things
we expect them to take care of things when they go wrong
we expect them to be cheer our mood when it goes wrong
we expect them to share our happiness and feel good about it
we expect them to share their sorrows and worries
we expect them to know that we long for them if they are not around

but it really hurts when atleast one of the above fails.
Someone long long time back taught me not to have expectations in life... but its just as blur as a distant star in the sky...
Maybe its time we remember one thing "Dont expect". When we follow this rule... life would be so happy... for even small surprises we would be very elated and would remember it for a long time...

At the end i would like to say....
"lower them and you'll never be disappointed!!!!!"

some day

"Some day the wind will change and you will see me clearly
One day these dreams of mine will bring me to my time
Some day i will become what i am meant to be coming to
One day but that's a million some days from today

Lately the sunshine makes a different shape around
Lately my music has a different sound to show me
Lately i ask questions of the world but no one is listening
Tell me when i go to sleep what will the morning bring me?

Falling, falling, falling, or am i flying?
Flying, flying, flying, or am i falling?... "

just found these lyrics in net while i was searching something else...
they are so beautiful and makes so much sense in my life...
