One who gives more than he receives, receives more than he gives.

Some people are announcing year 2016 as the year of Victory of WHITE over BLACK but the stark truth is that the self-actualisation needs of a few have been realised at the cost of deprivation of the basic needs of the majority.

If a person’s ‘Hi’ is more passionate than his ‘Bye’ it means you mean nothing to him.

Wealthily unhealthy

By Neel Anil Panicker

There are two types of persons who show off their wealth.

The first are the ones who simply like to show off, be it anything including a new pet cat that one has  bought from the flea market at a bargain or the new car or house one has built or even the brand new husband or wife one has acquired or even the horrendous amount of money that one has won at the races.

They look at all these as mere acquisitions grand enough to tom-tom to the world and its neighbour.

They are, by nature, otherwise harmless, even agreeable, men and women.

It is the other type that we should be worried about. These are the ones who have been newly indoctrinated into the world of riches and so, quite mistakenly, believes that due to this, the world revolves around him or her.

The first type of person suffers from a universal human need to show off one’s supposed superiority over others and frankly, we don’t mind that and thereby allow such people to carry on with their grand show of showing off.

It is the latter type of person who is to be shunned for he (or, she, for that matter) equates wealth with goodness and, that is the most unethical, stupid, and if I may add, unhealthy stand anyone can take.

Between one blindly in love and one blinded by love, the former is less tragic as it is merely the degree of an affliction which with time may lessen whereas the latter is a terminal disease from which one can never recover.

The jury is still out as to which is a tad better: to lose in love or be lost in love. As for me, I would prefer the latter. For, when one is lost in love one is never able to tell whether one has won or lost. So, thankfully there is no love lost. Which, as you can see, is any day better than to lose in love. Hence, lose yourself in love and get lost.
