What is courage?
A Spiritual Quality which makes you face your pain or fear.
What is the meaning of Courage?
Is it to fight a bull in a bullfight?
Is it to drive a formula 1 car?
Is it to fly a fighter in combat?
Is it to practice free fall parachuting?
Is it bungee jumping, wild water rafting?
Is it to gamble your salary on a coin toss?
Is it to insult the doorman in a bar?
Is it to insult your boss?

Michael Joseph Jackson (born 29th August 1958) was a gifted child, a born entertainer. He started his career with his elder brothers and was managed by his father, They were known as The Jackson 5. Even though this group was doing well, All eyes were on the little child in the front.He started his solo career and started his journey to Success, he was the first African-American to have such a great fan following and in his late teens he was known and loved all over the world by millions. Off the wall, Bad and Thriller are some of his record breaking albums that sold millions around the world and making him appear in the Guinness World Records as "The Most Successful Entertainer of All Time"!! His achievements include 13 Grammy's, 13 singles that have been on the charts for years. Michael Jackson was in the eyes of billions having a great deal of fortune and fame, eventually he had to pay a price by being exploited by the Media. Michael as a young teen was teased about his the size of his nose which caused him to go under knife the 1st time, over the years he went through many surgery's. Starting from a cute Black American who won the hearts of billions around the world had transformed himself into a white man. No one knows why he went through this, what made him do it to himself, People still say if kept his natural looks he would be the Greatest Entertainer of all time. Fact remains besides this conversion he still remains one of the Greatest. Michael Jackson's down fall came when he was charged of Molesting young children, the Media made his Life a living Hell even though was proved innocent the media had destroyed his Image, in front of the Public. Even though Michael Jackson was still loved by billions he could not recover from the damage the Media had done. His dancing and singing skills have been unique and has inspired many of today's entertainers. Over the years Michael Jackson had been involved in many charities and helped millions. Sadly he is no longer with us (a huge loss for the Entertainment Industry) One thing is for sure he will not be forgotten and will live in our hearts forever!

Financial Planning is must for everyone from the lower right up to the Upper Class.
Financial Planning has been taught to every child, even you! Remember your Mom telling you don’t buy this don’t buy that it’s not good for you and stuff?? Yup! That was one of your important lessons.. But we as children ignored the Financial Planning lesson and ran out and bought sugary candy which just made us Nuts and eventually drove our Parents Nuts (If you are laughing now don’t forget you will have kids of your own)
The Ideal expense to pay check ratio would be 1 : 2 or even better 1 : 3 and so on.
Every Company aims for it and so should you!
But unfortunately not many get it that way.
But roughly even if you are saving 1/3 of your pay check you are doing well enough.
People are spending a lot on Financial Planning, getting people to help balance their lives. Don’t forget you got to pay people for Financial Planning!
So instead of paying someone for a solution here are some Financial Planning Rules, to keep your self balanced and live a Happy Life.
My Financial Planning MUST-DO List
Financial Planning rule no. 1
STOP using Credit Cards:
As convenient as it is, it’s an added expense and a very good reason to spend money. Only use Credit Cards where necessary. Consider this step as a bad habit and drop it where Financial Planning is concerned.
Financial Planning rule no. 2
Get rid of your Loans:
This is must you have no idea, how light you will feel.
Speak to your Bank and pay more to get rid of them faster.
Financial Planning rule no. 3
Buy in Bulk:
When you buy grocery in bulk not only you get them cheaper you can use them for longer. For e.g. you use 3 soap bars in a week instead of getting just 3 next week, get a pack of 10 you will get it cheaper plus you will save time and money to go back to the Store the following week. Use this Financial Planning rule where ever possible.
Financial Planning rule no. 4
Cut down on luxuries:
You don’t need to eat out everyday, Cook at home sometimes, its healthy (that’s if you know how to cook) and cheaper, Apply this Financial Planning rule where ever possible.
Financial Planning rule no. 5
Get to the 1 : 2 Ratio:
Try as hard as you can to reach to this ratio, earning at least twice as much as your Expenses. This step is a very important step in Financial Planning!
Financial Planning rule no. 6
Save money on Gas.
An article on saving money on Gas can be found "here"
Financial Planning rule no. 7 (to be continued)

Amazing as it is! Google Maps is the best application ever.. today i watched the Eiffel Tower from at least 20 feet away. You know how?? Google Maps!!Its a lot of fun for People who like to travel plus its handy as far searching for maps is concerned. Google's Invention is absolutely brilliant. But! Give it a thought, if i can see the Eiffel Tower from a different continent as if i was standing there right in front of it. How will an Evil mind use this application??
Just to make sure i used Google Maps and traveled around the Eiffel Tower than browsed through New York City Streets, checked the lanes, buildings, the roads etc.. Its like you are actually standing there and checking everything out.. the 360 degree feature is awesome!!
If given some time i can get used to the streets of new york! Did Google give it a thought before launching Google Maps?
I found the following information on Wikipedia.."Satellite view
Google Maps provides high-resolution satellite images for most urban areas in Canada, and the United States (including Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands) as well as parts of Australia and many countries. Google Maps also covers many cities.
Various governments have complained about the potential for terrorists to use the satellite images in planning attacks. Google has blurred some areas for security (mostly in the United States), including the U.S. Naval Observatory area (where the official residence of the Vice President is located), and previously the United States Capitol and the White House (which formerly featured this erased housetop). Other well-known government installations, including Area 51 in the Nevada desert, are visible. Not all areas on satellite images are covered in the same resolution. Places that are less populated are usually not covered in as much detail as populated areas. In some areas, there are patches of clouds which make the map cluttered"
Even if Google tries to hide the Main Buildings would it matter? If you can see the surrounding areas you can easily make an escape route or devise a plan of any sort.
I was told that if I post this Article.. Google might Suspend my account :D
I am giving it a thought but lets see how it goes.. If you do not see any New Posts, assume that Google Deleted my account.
Anyways Dear Reader
