Lesson learnt

How many of us have heard this Idiom "Early bird catches the worm", i guess most of us have heard it @ some point of time. My dad has told this a thousand times, but never took it too seriously, yesterday i realized the true meaning of the Idiom.

What did i realize?

"If you start something early, you stand a better chance of success" this can be applied to any situation of your life. So, you better make the right calls @ the right times, because finally its you who has to face the situations presented by life.

Delhi: Monument of Akshardham

The Akshardham monument, built without steel, is entirely composed of sandstone and marble. It consists of 234 ornately carved pillars, 9 ornate domes, 20 quadrangled shikhars, a spectacular Gajendra Pith (plinth of stone elephants) and 20,000 murtis and statues of India’s great sadhus, devotees, acharyas and divine personalities.

The monument is a fusion of several architectural styles of pink stone and pure white marble. Pink stone symbolizes bhakti (devotion) in eternal bloom and white marble of absolute purity and eternal peace. The monument was built after over 300 million man hours of services rendered by 11,000 volunteers, sadhus and artisans.

It is the one of the wonders of the modern world, and the wonders of modern India.

The National Portal of India

The Government of India has finally come with a Portal for the entire Nation and offers lot of services. I see this as a step in right direction for enabling IT(Information Technology) in most the sectors and provide services to all the citizens.

The Vision for E-Governence looks impressive and there are several Online services like Income Tax | Passport/VISA | Company Affairs | Central Excise | Pensions | Land Records | Road Transport |Property Registration | Agriculture | Municipalities | Gram Panchayats (Rural) | Police | Employment Exchange |E-Courts which are already available.

India is definitely Shining.
