Rani was born on 31st jully, 1990.She met me in my office during the period of my posting at Varanasi.Rani has won 14 medals at the state level and 12 at the national level. Thin small girl , Rani is a marathon walker and walks 10 KM.Dedicated to her game Rani had no means to look after her physical growth and therefore depended on private help and scholarship. She had been requesting the state Govt to help her. But no one would. Rani met me and I could see that this girl had in her everything that a National champion has. I wrote applications for her, sent requests on her behalf to the Govt and other public sector undertakings requesting for a job. No one listened , No one cared. But Rani did not give up. One day she rang me up from Patiala and said that she had been given employement in Railways. She has joined today at Varanasi and tomorrow she is travelling back to Patiala to resume her training in the Commonwealth camp. She has promised me that she will do her best to earn a place in the athelitic squad of India in Commonwealth games. Rani I know will because she knows she can and therefore she will. For me it is a mission accomplished .Thank you Rani for beleiving in yourself and for having faith in me. You have done me honour. I am very happy for you. God bless you my lovely daughter.

The yellow dancing flowers that once make you sing with joy unfortunately look pale over the period of time. Beauty lies in the eyes of beholder.Also true is the fact that we look before and after and pine for what is not.They say you are a successful man if you have good friends who talk to you while you are living and who can rest your body in peace when you are departing from this world. Truth is that the relationships make the person you are.Experience is not what you know about things, it is how you deal with the knowledge that you have acquired. When everything fails you nature does not, it has an answer. The most beautiful relationship one can have is the one you have with yourself.Most of the time you are in communication with yourself and while communicating if you have understood the value of silence you are meditating.It is beautiful to be within yourself, maybe because you know where you are and who you are with. You know that between you and yourself nothing would change and you also know that there would be hardly something that would remain unchanged.Albert Einstein said that there are two ways of living your life, one is as if nothing is a miracle and the other as if everything is a miracle.Enlightenment enhances the quality of your performance. Happiness is a state of mind and it is unfortunate that we do everything that leads to unhappiness in the hope that our actions will make us happy.
