No matter what anyone says. Being happy in what you have is the best you can do to yourself.

I don't think people living during the great depression went around saying how happy they were. So I guess we will have to wait and see what people have to say about the great recession.

I went through your "A YetiGuide® : How To Post In Proper English" but still made that mistake.

Please forgive me this time. I correct myself: It was tandoori Chicken.

No, this is not from the opposition's speech, this is from the list of what they have missed to tell the people.

And yes, this is the rage that I am filled with by driving my car everyday for 30 minutes in the Hyderabad Traffic.

If there was something I could change about when i was born, i would definitely choose 15 years later,

why ?

I grew up with the best of businessmen around me, the tops who had ruled and governed states,

Grew up with them who knew the power of money, the meaning of power and combined know the power of money and power.

What you see today in the garb of commercialism is crap, attend a performance of Ustad Bismillah Khan in a fort in a private audience and the food and service , then you see what really life is all about.

He treats you like family, he treats you like a son, and you are not related to him, (dad is around so don't get ideas guys) he was the scion of an illustrious ruling family of India and all of you know his name and lineage if you studied in CBSE/state boards/ICSE. (name was in history books)

Experienced the bridge between the 70's and 80's where there was a distinct change in mindset in business and jobs and finally was mature by the time the Harshad MEhta boom came, made money in it, the dot com boom, the 9/11 bust.

However what those gentlemen of old taught me, has stuck by me. To really change what I want to change, i wish I would have been born far later.

Now back to reality, i would not have met my wife, in the way I would have, I would not have met the friends I did along the way, till date, come rain, hail, sunshine, heat, cold, poverty, blue murder or what soever, I am proud of the fact that my friendships extend beyond 30 years. (I do have friends who have been friends with me for the past 30 years)

Nothing can change that for me.

The only thing which wants me to change when I was born was, the insensitivity to the old and ancient which, the new generation has.

My meagre 2 cents of old.

I think all it comes down to is whether you're a pessimist or an optimist. If you're an optimist, you'll think of everything that's convenient now. Technology, cars, money, shorter skirts ....

If you're a bit of a pessimist, you'll complain about the lack of open space, the blatant commercialization of everything, the way the world revolves around money etc. etc.

So which one are you? I, for one, am an idealist. I want the best of both worlds, so I'm kind of on the fence for this one.

When I was two years old I was sold as a slave for 3 over-ripe bananas and half a papaya to a fruit vendor. This was the disadvantage of being a reaped fruit. After this slavery was abolished.

Woe is me.
WHAT was my response too and hey SAM i too was born in 1973. Heck could have waited for 2 more years to reap benefits of whatever and whenever.

and you said it right -- woe is me

I think most people who have found their station in life would not like to change when they were born even if they could. That would erase all their life's acheivements and leave it undefined.

NO, this is not Kaliyuga. Kaliyuga finished in 1972... Now its the transition period to start Satyayuga. This transition last for another 200 years.During this phase all the bad things of Kaliyuga will vanish and by the start of Satyayuga you shall see good people, good things done everywhere...

My 2 cents
