As a small-business person, you must immerse yourself 100 percent in everything and learn about the ins and outs of every single department. . . . And as the business gets bigger, you will have to decide if you’re a manager or an entrepreneur. If you’re a manager, you can stay with that business and help it grow. If you’re an entrepreneur, you need to find a manager. Then you should move on, enjoy yourself and then set up your next enterprise.

A boy was born to a couple after eleven years of marriage. They were a loving couple and the boy was the gem of their eyes. When the boy was around two years old, one morning the husband saw a medicine bottle open. He was late for office so he asked his wife to cap the bottle and keep it in the cupboard. His wife, preoccupied in the kitchen totally forgot the matter. The boy saw the bottle and playfully went to the bottle fascinated by its color and drank it all. It happened to be a poisonous medicine meant for adults in small dosages. When the child collapsed the mother hurried him to the hospital, where he died. The mother was stunned. She was terrified how to face her husband. When the distraught father came to the hospital and saw the dead child, he looked at his wife and uttered just five words.
1. What were the five words ?
2. What is the implication of this story?
The husband just said “I am with you Darling”
The husband’s totally unexpected reaction is a proactive behavior. The child is dead. He can never be brought back to life. There is no point in finding fault with the mother. Besides, if only he had taken time to keep the bottle away, this would not have happened.. No one is to be blamed. She had also lost her only child. What she needed at that moment was consolation and sympathy from the husband. That is what he gave her.
If everyone can look at life with this kind of perspective, there would be much fewer problems in the world. “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”. Take off all your envies, jealousies, ruthlessness, selfishness, and fears. And you will find things are actually not as difficult as you think.
Moral of the story:
Sometimes we spend time in asking who is responsible or whom to blame, whether in a relationship, in a job or with the people we know. By this way we miss out something called L.I.F.E
On this Thiruvonam day.I was browsing some website and then i came across this one.So sad to know these facts. 😦

As i don’t have enough time to explain the plot of this film.I copied it from Wikipedia.Now I am gonna tell you my view about this film.First of all this is not like ordinary commercial movie.The story told here happens in 1970’s so don’t expect modernism and funky music.This movie took me way back into my childhood days.It was totally a different world at that time.There was no modernism,political and economic crisis as of now in India .As per me at that time every one used to enjoy their life.No one used to think about globalization and cosmopolitan life styles as what exist now.This is the sole reason why i decided to write a post about this movie.I want my childhood days back where i used to stay in a joint family and I used to play with kids in paddy fields that used to lush green during summer time also.During monsoon we also used to go to near by pond to catch some small fishes and after that we will put them in small Horlicks/Boost bottles.These things are also portrayed in this movie by writer.After watching all these all i wished was to get my childhood days back.
