#TeenTweets –  #TheReason 

“Sometimes my dear hubby, we do have to deal with people who forget to thank us. Sometimes it could be a thankless job. Service to others is a thankless job always, Rohan,” said Sharmilla.

The phone suddenly rang. Shaina rushed to answer the phone- an opportunity to get away from discussion. Rohan went on, “But what is bothering me is the law or universe. I mean we all know that what goes around comes around. The fact that somebody is so ungrateful to me just means I have been ungrateful to someone too.”

#TeenTweets – #TheReason

“What happened dad?” asked Rohit. He was so unlike his father. He had a lot of clarity in his mind and was expressive enough to give words to his thoughts. Rohit cared little whether people were in sync with his way of thinking or not. What he cared most about was doing what was right.

Eleven Minutes – Paulo Coelho

Any Painter for this scene ? 🙂

“…Since I was in the company of an intellectual, I would quote from Plato. According to him, at the beginning of creation, men and women were not as they are now; there was just one being, who was rather short, with a body and a neck, but his head had two faces, looking in different directions. It was as if two creatures had been glued back to back, with two sets of sex organs, four legs and four arms.

The Greek gods, however, were jealous, because this creature with four arms could work harder; with its two faces, it was always vigilant and could not be taken by surprise; and its four legs meant that it could stand or walk for long periods at a time without tiring. Even more dangerous was the fact that the creature had two different sets of sex organs and so needed no one else in order to continue reproducing.

‘Zeus, the supreme lord of Olympus said: ” I have a plan to make these mortals lose some of their strength.’

And he cut the creature into two with a lighting bolt, thus creating man and woman. This greatly increased the population of the world, and, at the same time, disoriented and weakened its inhabitants, because now they had to search for their lost half and embrace it and, in that embrace, regain their former strength, their ability to avoid betrayal and the stamina to walk for long periods of time and to withstand hard work. That embrace in which the two bodies re-fuse to become one again is what we call sex…”

Eleven Minutes – Paulo Coelho

From Maria’s diary, written that same day:

….the man, who was with me –  a painter, with a life entirely different from mine – throw a pebble into the water. Small circles appeared where the pebble fell, which grew and grew until they touched a  duck that happened to be passing and which had nothing to do with the pebble. Instead of being afraid of that unexpected wave, he decided to play with it…
