* FORWARD THIS TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU KNOW AND TELL THEM HOW PRECIOUS LIFE IS * --- "Its Nice 2 BE Important but its more Important 2 Be NICE" ---
Original post and comments : Treasure of the precious life...
This was a pretty interesting story from The Sunday Wichita Eagle Newspaper a couple of weeks ago. A resident in the area saw a ball bouncing around in the pond and when he went to investigate, it was a flathead catfish who had obviously tried to swallow a child's basketball which got stuck in its mouth.
The fish was totally exhausted from trying to dive but unable to, because the ball would always bring him back up to the surface. The resident tried numerous times to get the ball out but was unsuccessful. He finally had his wife cut the ball in order to deflate the ball and release the catfish.
You wouldn't believe it if you didn't see the attached photos.

On Thursday I lost my mother.
She was a thoroughly gentle woman, tender and caring. Every person used to love her and she was always been a symbol of endurance.
She was a genuine Indian woman. She came from simple middle class loving family. Unfortunately she married to the rich joint family and her in-Laws' family was nothing but a political party. All they knew were to play dirty games and to do court cases and police cases for the financial gains. It was very hard for her to digest all these things as her ideas were simple and straight.
Then my parents left that house without taking single penny with them and shifted to a small village. The days were of extreme poverty and the life was painstaking.
We also in our childhood suffered through all these things and became rude due to hardships of life. This rudeness hurt her also many times.
Now recently she was experiencing quite good life. My sister got married and was in California. Now she is settled well in Pune and have two sweet children. My younger brother is a software engineer in Seepz and he is engaged now and was going to get married in May. I was also making quite well. And suddenly death caught her unpredictably. The massive heart-attack was so unexpected that her face and body was calm and every onlooker was feeling as though she is sleeping peacefully.
Last three days I cried like anything. First she was my mother and second she was a good person as well. And with me many of my relatives from my mothers' side cried.
झेपेल तेव्हढंच दुःख तो आपल्याला देतो ।
दिलेलं दुःख संपलं कि आपल्यालाच नेतो ।।
(He gives us pain only which is bearable. When pain crosses it's limit, he lifts us to himself. )
Before the woman could say anything, the Hostess continued: "It is not usual for our company to permit someone from the Economy class to sit in the First class. However, given the circumstances, the Captain feels that it would be scandalous to make someone sit next to someone so disgusting." She turned to the Black guy, and said, "Therefore, Sir, if you would like to, please collect your hand luggage, a seat awaits you in First class." At that moment, the other passengers who were shocked by what they had just witnessed stood up and applauded.
If you are against Racism, please send this message to all your friends.

In my last blog I described that my state, Maharashtra is rough, robust, and sturdy & the people are warrior by heart. Here are the pictures of some forts built by great visionary King Shivaji who fought a guerilla war against the enemy who was 100 times higher in number, wealth and human resources using the geographical advantages of the land and the brain. Also he was a kind and impartial king and the people in his kingdom were happy and contented.
These pictures reflect the strength and natural beauty of Maharashtra.
Thanks and regards,
