Until No Child Is Wronged

Afghan Girl

I don’t think everyone is meant to marry. No, not everyone should not be allowed to marry! When I look around I see so many kids who have got a bad life just because their parents didn’t know how to raise a kid. There are those who abuse kids, mentally, physically, emotionally and sometimes sexualy. I am sure most people think that physical and sexual abuse is more frequent, but most children go through a lot of emotional and mental torture throughout their childhood. They just learn to cope with it. After all, that is what you would go through your entire life. Maybe it isn’t abuse, but the induction to real world. If you are to grow up in a world were you will be tortured through never ending tests and trials which will emotionally and mentally drain you, what is a small dose at a younger age? In a world were you …

Corporate Responsibility – Google Style

Google

I am not a management guru, but I did learn something about management and corporate responsibilities. Recently on Facebook I came across a post from Robert Scoble about how US market is the market that counts. He was talking about an article which reported that the iPhone 5 sales have helped Apple to take climb up the sales chart atleast in the US. I agree with him on the point that US market is one of the major market there is and being the leader there counts for something. But I would like to take a look at the bigger picture. According to reports, the the individual parts of iPhone costs less than $200, yet it is sold at over $600 unlocked. Is that a 300% markup? Probably not. Though $200 is not the exact price and Apple would obviously get more discount based on the fact they are ordering …

Pole Star

The thing about “pole star” is they are always there, hardly moving, a compass, guide. I spend a lot of time with my grandmother as a child and she was quite a story teller. I guess raising 9 kids would automatically give you a doctorate in story telling. One of the stories that she repeated a few times were about a mother and her son. In the story the son stole a pencil or an eraser, I am not sure, and took it home. The mother did not reprimand him. I am not sure if she encouraged it, but I am going to take some liberty and say that she didn’t encourage him to do it again. The next time he stole something else, and he grew up to be a thief, a pretty notorious one at that. In time he was caught, found guilty and sent to the gallows. He had probably killed …

The Right Thing To Do

I have been  bit busy during the last few weeks, and was catching up on the blogs that I follow when I came across the following. Today, the shadow called my name. “Sit down and visit for the day…” I fought the urge to sit and chat. It whined and wept; it pranced and danced, weaving words like a bazaar seller on the street. “Sit down my dear, tarry here my dear and rest your weary bones. Put your feet up, Take a break, a very long break.” “God has placed in each soul a true guide to the light, but man struggles to find life outside himself, unaware that the life he is seeking is within him.” Kahlil Gibran “People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a …
