Ushering in the new year

When you know that to morrow is going to be like any other day, why celebrate and wish?. Then, there are lots of things that are special. We would have aged by one year and may be a bit wiser, you remember your friends and relations at least this one day and vice versa. What do we wish each other? Usually peace, prosperity and happiness. Experience tells me that peace is unrelated to prosperity and so is happpiness. Peace and happiness can be related and coexist.In addition, I feel one should wish the other good health both mental and physical.Goodhealth is a prerequisite for peace and happiness.Physical health needs regulated eating and daily physical excercise and mental health needs detachment, a giving attitude and freedom from greed, jealousy and anger.

I wish all of you this in the coming year.

They say beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. I see it when the morning sun penetrates through the branches of trees laden with green leaves and the mist melts, in the round pearls of water on the leaves of the water lilly, in a child playing unobserved, a starlit cloudless sky in the still of the midnight and in the guileless smiles on the faces of Dalai Lama and swami Nithyananda

A Very Happy New Year to you Doctor!!!!

Thank you so much for everything!.
I remember the days you gave me courage, I remember the days you gave me strength, I remember the years where my children were safe in your hands. Today they are grown up mature adults. If they are in pink of health, it’s only because of you. I must tell you that their “No Medication” policy continues. They prefer to suffer from fever,cold,cough and get scolded, but no medicine. It’s a habit through you.

I cannot really put into words what it has meant to us to have a family doctor who really cares about his patients, who always makes you feel like you are his only patient, when we know this is not true!

A "thank you" for that seems like not enough.

A Very Happy, Joyful and Prosperous New Year to you Uncle.

If we find happiness in small small things around us... in all that nature has created and continues to do so, we wudn't require special days to celebrate coz then every day would be special.

Thanks for sharing such a beautiful thought !!
