Did you know…
… that today is the Tasmanian Devil’s Birthday? Taz celebrated his birthday on this day in 1954 with the release of Devil May Hare. Taz is generally portrayed as a dim-witted carnivore with a notoriously short temper and little patience. He will eat anything and everything, with an appetite that seems to know no bounds. Celebrate by spinning around in circles until you get dizzy! 🙂

Sand castle – A Haiku
Whose girl is that? I think I know.
Its owner is quite angry though.
She was cross like a dark potato.
I watch her pace. I cry hello.
She gives her girl a shake,
And screams I’ve made a bad mistake.
The only other sound’s the break,
Of distant waves and birds awake.
The girl is clucking, feathered and deep,
But she has promises to keep,
Tormented with nightmares she never sleeps.
Revenge is a promise a girl should keep.
She rises from her cursed bed,
With thoughts of violence in her head,
A flash of rage and she sees red.
Without a pause, I turned and fled.
With thanks to the poet, Robert Frost, for the underlying structure.

Chapter 4 Sloka 42
Can’t assure the authenticity of this message:
1.Don’t encourage your son and his wife to stay under same roof with you. Best to suggest them to move out, even to the extent of renting a house. It’s their problem to find a separate home.
More the distance between you and your children’s families, the better is the relationship with your in laws.
2.Treat your son’s wife as his wife, not as your own daughter, maybe just treat her as a friend. Your son would always be your Junior but, if you think that his wife is of the same rank and if you ever scolded her, she would remember it for life.
In real life, only her own mother and not u will be viewed as a person qualified to scold or correct her.
3.Whatever habits or characters your son’s wife has is not your problem at all, it is your son’s problem. It isn’t your problem as he is an adult already.
4.Even when living together, make each others businesses clear, don’t do their laundry, don’t cook for them and don’t baby sit their children. Unless, of course, there is a special request by your son’s wife and you feel that you’re capable and don’t expect anything in return.
Most importantly, you shouldn’t worry about your son’s family problems. Let them settle themselves
5.Pretend to be blind and deaf when your son and his wife are quarrelling. It’s normal that the young couple do not like their parents to be involved in the dispute between husband and wife.
6.Your grandchildren totally belong to your son and his wife. However they want to raise their children, it is up to them. The credit or blame would be on them.
7.Your son’s wife need not necessarily respect and serve you. It is the son’s duty. You should have taught your son to be a better person so that you and your son’s wife relationship could be better.
8.Do more planning for your own retirement, don’t rely on your children to take care of your retirement. You had already walked through most of your journey in life, there are still a lot of new things to learn through out the journey.
9.It is your own interest that you enjoy your retirement years. Better if you could utilise & enjoy everything that you had saved before you die. Don’t let your wealth become worthless to you.
10.Grandchildren don’t belong to your family, they’re their parents precious gift.

Spirituality is a positive attitude towards life.
Spirituality must make man more human. It is a positive attitude of releasing all that is good, noble and beautiful in man. It also contributes to all that is gracious and lovely in the environment.
It does not require the external renunciation of worldly activities or the avoiding of duties and responsibilities.
It only requires that, while performing the worldly activities or discharging the responsibilities arising from the specific place and position of the individual, the inner spirit should remain free from the burden of desires.

Spirituality consists in meeting life adequately and fully without being overpowered by the opposites.
It must assert its dominion over all illusions—however attractive or powerful.
Without avoiding contact with the different forms of life, a perfect man functions with complete detachment in the midst of intense activity.
