Horn Ok Please!!!

"Horn Ok Please" is the message which (nearly)all of our Indian trucks have painted at their back and in fact,I dont think any of us have missed seeing it till now!!

But apart from that also,there are quite some weird,funny and sometimes quite meaningful messages written at the back of the trucks which I find very interesting!!!

Presenting some of the funny and some words of wisdom on our trucks,(which is a credit taken for originality!!!)

    ** Kanoon na kayada, chamchagiri se fayada ** How true!!
    ** Yaad karo us maiyya ko, jo paar laga de naiyya ko ** Baat main dum hai bhai!!
    ** Ek ho, magar sher ho** Hmmm…
    ** Bhai ho to Bharat jaisa, beta ho to Shravan jaisa** A wishful thinking?!!
    ** Paas aayega, to itihaas ban jaayega.** This one’s dangerous, mate!
    ** Raam Raam rut, saamne se to hut** The haughty one, I guess!
    ** Lagi jhapki, zindagi tapki** Must have had a close shave, what say?
    ** Sapne nahin, saamne dekh** Says the preacher!
    ** Jitna sukh chaho, utna kariye jaap, dukh bhi jitna sah sako, utna kariye paap** A profound thought indeed! I like it!
    ** Dekho aur tarso, phir milenge parson** Oh…what!?
    ** Gyan mat baantiye, yahaan sabhi gyaani hain**s Wah, kya baat hai! I second it...
    ** Gati par brake, varna haddi break** Says a traffic cop turned truck driver!
    ** Jab tak bheetar aag rahegi, jaari bhagambhag rahegi** Another preacher amongst us!!

And my all time favorite: 'Buri nazar wale tera munh kala....apna toh best friend hai uparwaala'!!:):)

PS: Which bumper sticker made u tickle??

Wisdom from Books-1

The opposite of love is not hate. Hate is just love gone bad. The actual opposite of love is apathy.

- The Secret of the Nagas, Amish Tripathi

When I came across the above quote while reading the book,I stopped,re-read the line,tried to understand it in the context of the story and was left highly impressed.But then I moved ahead and forgot about it.

But lately,following some incidents and situations,"apathy" and the above quote seems pretty justified.

In terms of emotions, hate is considered to be the best antonym of love. But apathy- lack of any emotions or concern whatsoever- feels more appropriate as an opposite to love- a lot of emotional attachment and concern. Hate continues to have the emotional attachment component, though in a negative way.

I know,its not easy to acquire an indifferent attitude,but its surely worth a try...specially if too much love or too much hate is causing headache:-)

On a lighter note, I-don’t-care mode saves a lot of energy compared to i-hate-blah-thing-and-will-keep-fretting-about-it mode.
The latter might be a good technique for losing weight though;);)
