Poem...

When things go wrong as they sometimes will, When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill, When funds are low and the debts are high, And you want to smile, but you have to sigh. When care is pressing you down a bit. … Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit. Life is queer with its twists and turns As every one of us sometimes learns. And many a failure turns about When he might have won had he

Making a Difference !!

Making a Difference !!

Birth of a child in a family is usually welcomed with great joy and expectations, but this happiness slowly disappears as they learn about the disabilities of the child.

It’s very easy to find a person who will work for money but

A DAY WITH “RIYA”

A DAY WITH “RIYA”

On the night of December 25th, 2000 when the entire world was celebrating their ‘Millennium Christmas’, I went into labor.
