MERE FAITH IS NOT ENOUGH! IT’S PERFORMANCE THAT COUNTS!
Baba Ramdev, a yoga specialist, gratuitously predicted that the Indian cricket team would overwhelm the Pakistan team in the Finals of the Champions Trophy but what happened was the diametric opposite!
In the final calculation its individual and team performance ALONE that really counts whether its in our own lives or in the many activities that we involve ourselves in!
I admire many Nair and Christian gentlemen and ladies (I haven’t known many Muslims at close quarters this far owing to circumstances!) for the sterling services that they render to the nation’s communities and society in general. I make it a point to OPENLY appreciate and encourage them too.
At bottom it’s the performance that they put up despite their personal glitches–NOT if their faith is imported or indigenous!– that has impressed me deeply.
Lalu Prasad Yadav has been a flash in the pan for some time in the North–for claiming to be a Yadav like Lord Krishna was!– but Time exposed the skullduggery and chicanery that he lived by ,and now he is facing numerous legal proceedings. The guy, I felt in my viscera, lacked the basic sense of hygiene when I noticed him spitting his pan all over the Kolkata Airport lounge once. He was surrounded by 12 big framed body guards armed with sten guns on that day!
It need not be the Parliament of course!
It can be right inside your home!
If your parents collectively fail to impress you as your own nurturers in some manner, you do feel like escaping forever from them!
If your mom (or dad) is a Mr/Ms Toxin in her words and actions, you learn to unlearn any attachment you might have had in your childhood days and you feel like leaving her out in the cold in the fag-end of her life!
That only proves that she has NOT performed as a good mom ought to!
I have noticed far more parents scoring a duck in bringing up their own kids than in the boastful chat they present to me!
HAVE A GREAT DAY!
