illusion ...

 Illusions of happiness is something like a picture above ,,what you actually see is not what exactly it is ..same is happiness in life..
happiness has no limits and boundaries ..people cannot measure happiness ..every person has his own definition of happiness ..fundamentals are different not necessarily what makes us happy will make others happy too..
in the past I met many people (our clients) ..and I learned that not many are happy .. its not money ..its not family ..its not work ..then what makes them happy??
Its the inner satisfaction .. so who is satisfied??
 Jasmine 28 yrs old a physician who came to me to get some bridal stuff six months before ..I met her last week.. she was  tired.. she said" I jus wanna take a retirement ,I m totally exhausted jus wannabe be at home..its too much.. no cooking nothing jus work for two of us" I asked her retirement at the age of 28 .. ?"
she laughed ..I married a cardiologist ..he is working .. I jus want to relax.. have babies and enjoy with kids I m done with medicine n all "
... Rashmi another client .. I met at work ... a mechanical engineer .. working for GM (general motors)
said " I m sick jus sick ..wanna leave this ..and do my own stuff .. have my catering business ..I love cooking ..(she cooks very well ) "I m like what the heck! so many yrs of education and hard work and now when time to earn you guys are totally burned out.."
.. Another example .. I was in school standing there waiting in the hall.. Amy said shelly" you dint go to work??" 
Shelly " its jus same BS (bullshit ) everyday.. I dint know this MBA is actually gonna kick my ass off .."
I m jus waiting for time when I could earn my benefits and spend some time for me"its lot of work
who is happy? when we are young its studies n jus studies .. when we grow up its the career n only career that matters and now when its time to earn we are exhausted many years of studies has burnt everyone
what is important in life happiness ? where do we get happiness .. from money..nope 
from  education ... nope ...from big careers ..nope..
.. if you ask me ..I would say yes .. its monotonous life style..
where are we heading ..?
I believe there is no  fixed formula to  happiness .. its basically Peace n satisfaction ,, which comes from within.. rest is rat race!

DemocratsV/S Republicans

..Today I registered myself for vote..(dint do last year)I had been following debates of Obama and Romney .. looking at their point of view ,, always felt Obama has a reason for everything and he proved to be right showing us what he meant and how it could be done .. I don't want to to get into details of health plan or un-employment rate or deduction in taxes spread all over the channels and news,,(you can read it)
We just want a good ruler for our country .. We had seen lot of sufferings with George Bush .. who couldnt keep the economy stable and the end result was .. there was lot of suffering and people going in for bankruptcy..we definitely don't want Romney to do that he sounds to me a LIAR

we should all know .. the right to vote and vote to right person ..irrespective of caste creed or age..
please people .. vote and register yourself to vote if its not done yet... A better future

God Bless America.

Name brands.

..I am sometimes surprised by these name brands and quality they sell.... its like fainting after hearing the price..
I can write a book on those experiences and people who are crazy after these name brands .. they would click picture on these signatures styles .. ..BUT end of the day quality and only quality matters..
.... I have a denim from Mango ..(European brand) .. cost me a fortune unlike other brands ..I tried at the store the fit was perfect .. but a little itchy fabric ..I thought its new after one wash it will be smooth .. so now after several washes its still same ... that itch is still there,,
Did I pay heavily for that itch?
 A cousin of us who generally believes is living life king size came from Delhi to US for vacation.. I looked at her denims ..nice fit "A name brand ".. and very expensive ..Sitting on my light brown couch I could not understand as my couch turned blue when she got up..?? ..I told her something is wrong maybe with purse or jeans ..the navy blue colored jeans had been showing its true colors even before it was washed ;D ..she was upset she paid some three hundred ($$$)bucks for this designer brand
"yes it was worth the price  .. showing up its true colors".
 Coach purses are a rage in US every-other lady carrying fake or real.. but has to be coach ..even if there is no money to put in that coach purse,, its like to be leading herd of sheep..
.. yesterday at this high end mall I picked up a top in white ..some designer ..with a heavy price tag ..I thought ok lets try it looks good.. but they were closing in 10 mins when I tried it at home ..such weird fitting with a pregnant look ..did I pay for that?

old navy pants which everyone praises for its quality I got one still sitting in my closet ..has absolutely no shape Hopeless!! Its like pajama shape  without drawstring.

...$10 white dress shirt from kmart which I wear till date at work .. has a good fit ..  no name brand.. easy n comfortable.. 
do we really need to show these name brands? or is it the comfort that matters first...
