Once upon a time all feelings and emotions went to a coastal island for a vacation. According to their nature, each was having a good times. suddenly, a warning of an impending strom was announced and everyone was advice to evacuate the islands. The announcement caused sudden panic. All rushed to their boats . Even if damaged boats quickly repaired and commissioned for duty. Yet, love did not wish to flee quickly. There was so much to do. But as the clouds darkend, love realised it is the time to leave. Alas, there were no boats to spare. Love look around with hope. Just then prosperity passed by a luxurious boat. Love shouted “prosperity, could you take men in your boat?” “No,” replied prosperity, my boat is full of precious possession, gold and silver.” “There are no place for you.” A little later vanity come by a beautiful boat. Again love shouted “could you help me vanity? I am stranded and need a lift, please take me with you ” vanity replaied haughtily, “No i can’t take you with me. My boats are get soiled by your muddy feet” sorrow passed by after some time. Again love asked for help, but it was to no avail. “No i can’t take you with me. I’m so sad. I want to be myself. ” when happiness passed by a few minute later, love again called for help. But happiness is too much happy, so he didn’t look around. Hardly concern about anyone. Love was growing restless and dejected. Just then somebody called out, love come, I’ll take you with me “. Love didn’t ni who was being so magnanimous, but jumped on to the boat. Greatly relieved that she would reach a safe place. On getting off from boat, love met with knowledge. Puzzled, love inquired, “knowledge do you know who so generously gave me a lift when one else wished to help?” Knowledge smile, “oh, that was time”. “And why would time stop to pick me and take me to Safety”.
Love wondered. knowledge laugh with deep wisdom and replied, time only know your greatness and what you are capable of. Only love can bring peace and great happiness in this world.”

A CUP OF TEA – MORAL STORY
Once upon a time there was a bright student of Indian Scriptures. He wanted to become more and more learned. One day he came to know about the great Buddha Guru. He went to him. He introduced him and told the purpose of his visit. Buddha Guru smiled and welcomed the student. He asked about his wellness. Then Buddha Gurustarted asking him about his past knowledge. The student described all what he has learned and told that he has acquired knowledge about almost everything.
Little later the Guru asked one of his helper to bring some tea. He got tea in a big pot and two cup-plates. The boy started to make the tea but the Guru stopped him.
The Guru asked the student to hold a cup plate so that he can pour tea into it. The student did the same. The Guru started to pour tea in his cup. The cup got filled with tea but the Guru continued to pour tea in it. The tea started to fell in the plate. The guru still continued to pour the tea. The student wondered, “What is happening?”
When the tea started coming out from the plate also then the student told his Guru that the cup is full. It cannot hold more tea now. The Gurustopped pouring the tea and told his student with a smile, “ Son, your case is also similar to this. We need an empty cup to pour the tea similarly the mind has to be open to accept the knowledge. You should be free from all pre-notions about the knowledge acquired and pride. If you are already filled with what you have learned where will my teachings be accepted. It will flow out of your mind like the tea and it will go waste.”
TO RECEIVE KNOWLEDGE THE BRAIN HAS TO BE FREE FROM BONDAGE’S, OPEN TO ACCEPT AND CLEAN FROM ALL PREJUDICES.
Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh warned today that “the worst is yet to come.”
- Ex-PM Manmohan Singh said the GDP would decline due to notes ban.
- He had earlier attacked the centre on demonetisation in Parliament.
- He was addressing the Congress’ Jan Vedna conclave in New Delhi.
New Delhi: Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, expressing concern that growth would plunge after the notes ban, warned today that “the worst is yet to come.”
Addressing the Congress’ “Jan Vedna” conclave, Dr Singh also described the government’s decision to suddenly ban 500 and 1,000 rupee notes in November as a “disaster”.
“The beginning of the end has come,” commented the renowned economist, who was Prime Minister for 10 years.
In Gandhinagar, addressing the Vibrant Gujarat summit, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley dismissed the fears of slowdown. “Difficult decisions initially pass through difficult phases. Historic decisions have temporary pain attached to them,” the minister said.
“Excessive paper currency has its own vices, leads to its own temptations. We have seen its impact in India,” Mr Jaitley added.
Former Finance Minister P Chidambaram had earlier claimed that there was no record of the Cabinet meeting of November 8 when PM Modi announced the big move.
Dr Singh said after demonetization, “things are going from bad to worse and that the worst was yet to come”. He dismissed as a hollow claim that the situation has started looking up, and told Congress leaders it was their “solemn duty” to raise awareness on what he called “Modi’s propaganda”.
Both Dr Singh and Mr Chidambaram said there would be decline in the country’s GDP or Gross Domestic Product because of the notes ban, which wiped out 86 per cent of the cash in circulation.
The government and the central bank generally have differences but “never before has a government treated RBI like a department of the government of India,” remarked Mr Chidambaram.
He added that even one per cent decline in GDP will lead to a loss of Rs 1.5 lakh crore to the country.
The party issued a statement that the Prime Minister must reveal what percentage of the demonetised currency notes was black or untaxed money.
Dr Singh said: “Modi’s propaganda that the national income of India in the last two years has gone up has failed… The 7.6 per cent growth rate of country has come to 7 per cent in only a few months as a consequence of steep fall in the GDP of the country.”

NEW DELHI: A marching band from the UAE‘s defence forces will join the parade on Republic Day, the first time Arab soldiers will be marching in New Delhi.
After the French marching band joined the parade in 2016 in honour of Francois Hollande, the practice has caught the fancy of others as well. WithUAE crown prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan preparing to be the chief guest this year , the visiting dignitary who is also the deputy supreme commander of the armed forces, will bring a contingent to match the music and rhythm of India’s numerous military bands who put up a spectacular show on that day.
Sheikh Mohammed’s visit will be an opportunity for India and the UAE, who have grown closer in the past few years, to upgrade their bilateral relationship to a “strategic partnership”.
On January 20, India and the UAE will hold the first strategic dialogue, with minister of state M J Akbar and Anwar Mohammed Gargash, minister of state for foreign affairs of the UAE.
The two countries have been moving closer on questions of security, counter-terrorism and intelligence sharing all of which will form part of the dialogue. However, the effort will be to take it further, including global and regional issues.
While the importance of the relationship will be played out in the pomp and ceremony of the Republic Day ceremonies, the ballast of the relationship will be in the economic sphere.
The UAE wants to invest in India’s infrastructure, and the visit will see the Indian government rolling out measures to facilitate these investments, particularly in the roads and highways sector.
Energy, including populating the Indian strategic reserve and investing in downstream projects, will be another aspect of the engagement. Most of these had kicked off during Modi‘s visit to Abu Dhabi and Dubai in August 2015.
The first Nokia-branded Android phone – yes, we like to pretend the half-baked Nokia X series never happened – has finally launched. The rather unimaginatively named Nokia 6was introduced on Sunday by HMD Global, the new custodians of the Nokia brand.
Without any fanfare, HMD Globalannounced the launch of Nokia 6 via a release on its website, well ahead of the rumoured MWC debut. The Nokia 6 runs Android 7.0 Nougat and it sports a 5.5-inch full-HD display wrapped in 2.5D Gorilla Glass. The smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC alongside 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The Nokia 6 is a dual SIM smartphone that is backed by a 3000mAh non-removable battery.
The unibody Nokia 6 is built using 6000 series aluminium and its home button has an embedded fingerprint scanner. It packs a f/2.0 16-megapixel rear camera with phase detection auto focus and dual-tone flash, as well as an 8-megapixel f/2.0 front camera for selfies. The smartphone also includes Dolby Atmos tech and ‘dual amplifiers’ for louder sound.
Nokia 6 full specifications
There’s no word yet on what software features, if any, the Nokia 6 will offer in an attempt to stand out from the rest of the Android crowd, though HMD Global had previously hinted its Nokia-branded Android phones will offer a near stock experience.
Nokia 6 price in India and release date
Unfortunately for Nokia fans in India, the Nokia 6 is a China-exclusive smartphone that will be available only via JD.com at 1699 CNY (roughly Rs. 16,750) in “in early 2017”.
The company says it has no plans to launch the Nokia 6 in other markets though it confirmed that the “Nokia 6 marks the first step for the Nokiabrand into Android smartphones with more to come in H1 2017.”
