The Final Analysis

People are often unreasonable, illogical,
and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you
of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some
false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank,
people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone
could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness,
they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today,
people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have,
and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

You see, in the FINAL analysis,
it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway

-Dr. Kent M. Keith

I just felt like posting this today. It feels good when ever i read this.

I know i promised few folks to update my blog everyday, but given so many things happened unexpectedly (which i will write later) and tight schedule, for now, i am posting some pics at my flicker account. have fun.


Just for fun, i counted how many cereal boxes i had eaten in 2010. My breakfast is pretty much fixed most of the year. 18 – Cheerios & 8 – Honey Bunches of Oats.

I am sick of the snow storms this year. We got 3 storms in less than 3 weeks. And interesting thing is snow from the 1st storm has not melted a bit. 😦

But the bright side is i can put my D7000 into work and in few days i am heading to sunny side. 🙂

My india trip is coming up pretty soon, end of jan’11. Have to plan so many things as i’m taking my parents for a week long trip to see different temples in south india. Booked all train/flight tickets. Most of the hotels also booked. Man, it’s way expensive for the hotels in india. You don’t get any deals. After living quite a few number of years in US, it’s pretty hard to imagine for not getting deals. I feel there is less supply of good hotels, that could be the reason for these exorbitant prices.

One other main reason, i have to visit india is my cousin is getting married. this could be the best chance to see all relatives at one place. So far in all marriages in my family, including my marriage, i didn’t get to see marriage in a relaxed way as i had to take care many things in those marriages. No complaints. That’s what you do for your dear people. :-).

Best of all i can practice my photography skills both during trip with my parents and my cousin’s wedding. I just upgraded myself from point&shoot camera to DSLR. I just spent lot of time and money in purchasing/learning camera gear in hoping (?) to learn serious photography. I need to write a separate blog entry for my new camera gear.

Trip details and Camera gear later…bye for now.
