If poem by Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
    If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
    Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
    And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!
-Rudyard Kipling

Happy Anniversary Dream Notepad

Two years back on a Valentine’s day evening I published my post “Love” on this blog………

I was working as Technical ERP consultant in a IT company at that time in Miami Florida. I had always worked in Technical field with no creative background and this was my first experience at doing something creative.

Thought of writing this blog first came to my mind in Nov 2015, I wrote a few articles but never mustered the courage to post them. Towards November end I travelled to USA with great expectations and dreams of career success.

But life is not a bed of roses and  had to face constant workplace politics and abuse,was betrayed and made a victim of financial fraud by someone I considered friend, twice became homeless and had to stay in Hotel. All these incidents started to break me from inside, it was very hard to ignore constant criticising and still keep my confidence.

Just to avoid feeling lonely and depressed I decided to  write and published my first post exactly two years ago on exactly this day. With this new hobby I started observing people, event, places and even small small incidents very carefully and found that there are stories everywhere, each person you meet,each place you visit has something to offer you….

In this journey of two years I saw lot of up and downs and this blog is always like a notepad for me to write down my experiences, joys, pain, struggle and success. I had someone with whom I can share my feelings….

Now when I look back I realise what this small hobby gave me, it gave me a hope in times of despair, acted as a constant companion to battle lonliness and immense joy of doing something new.

Happy 2nd anniversary Dream Notepad and happy Valentine’s day to all my readers!!!!!!!!


Happy New Year

Cupid strikes you with his sweetest arrow,
Lady Luck bestows upon you health and wealth,
your Guardian Angel keeps your mind alert and bright

Happy New year!!!!!

Feliz Año Nuevo!!!!!!!

नवीन वर्षाच्या हार्दिक शुभेच्छा (Naveen Varshachya Hardhik Subhechha)!!!!!!!

Women’s day special

As woman’s day is approaching here are some beautiful lines I had read somewhere….

A tribute to all my women readers……….

When God created woman he was working late on the 6th day
An angel came by and said: “Why spend so much time on that one?”
And the Lord answered: “Have you seen all the specifications I have to meet to shape her ?”
“She must be washable, but not made of plastic, have more than 200 moving parts which all must be replaceable and she must function on all kinds of food, she must be able to embrace several kids at the same time, give a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken hearth and she must do all this with only two hands”.
The angel was impressed.

“Just two hands….impossible!“

And this is the standard model?!

“Too much work for one day….wait until tomorrow and then complete her“.
“I will not”, said the Lord. “I am so close to complete this creation, which will be the favourite of my heart”.

“She cures herself when sick and she can work 18 hours a day”.

The angel came nearer and touched the woman.
“But you have made her so soft, Lord” “She is soft”, said the Lord, “But I have also made her strong. You can’t imagine what she can endure and overcome.“

“Can she think?” the angel asked.

The Lord answered:
“Not only can she think, she can reason and negotiate.”
The angel touched the womans cheek….
“Lord, it seems this creation is leaking! You have put too many burdens on her.”

“She is not leaking….it’s a tear” the Lord corrected the angel

“What’s it for?” asked the angel.
And the Lord said:
“Tears are her way of expressing grief, her doubts, her love, her loneliness, her suffering and her pride.”
This made a big impression on the angel; “Lord, you are genius. You thought of everything.

The woman is indeed marvellous!”
Indeed she is!

Woman has strengths that amazes man.

She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens.
She holds happiness, love and opinions.
She smiles when feeling like screaming.
She sings when she feels like crying, cries when she is happy and laughs when she is afraid.
She fights for what she belives in.
Stand up against injustice.
She doesn’t take “no” for an answer, when she can see a better solution.

She gives herself so her family can thrive.

She takes her friend to the doctor if she is afraid.
Her love is unconditional.
She cries when her kids are victorious.

She is happy when her friends do well.
She is glad when she hears of a birth or a wedding.
Her heart is broken when a next of kin or friend dies.
But she finds the strength to get on with life.

She knows that a kiss and a hug can heal a broken heart.
There is only one thing wrong with her
She forgets what she is worth.


Today on the Valentine day as I am starting writing my blog what could be a better topic to start my first article than Love. When we think of valentine day all our thoughts come around one single thing that first and foremost thing you need to experience love is a partner, a dream partner, soulmate, a prince charming who will love you unconditionally with whom you can share all your thoughts who will always be there for you no matter what, with whom you can spend hours talking, long walks, candle light dinners, roses, chocolates, pastries and all things which make life beautiful.

No wonder all these things make life beautiful and everyone wants them at some point of time. Then what about the single people out there do they have to spend their days lonely wishing they could find their partner like all others?

Is it always necessary to have a partner? Certainly not according to me, love does not require a partner, you have to love yourself first before you can love someone else or to be able to attract someone else in your life. You have to build your self esteem, self confidence and go after your dreams and see how beautiful life seems to be to you.

So all my single friends don’t spend todays day feeling lonely and sad what if there is no one else to buy gifts,flowers and chocolates for you buy them yourself, listen to your favourite music, have dinner at your favourite restaurant, go for a long drive or a walk to your favourite place, plan a trip out of town do anything and everything that makes you happy.

Like I started with my new hobby of writing a blog my first experiment in doing something creative normally I am complete technical person. .

I would like to here your thoughts, suggestions comments from all of you on above.
