what is courtesy??

My father always tells me " As humans we should carry minimum courtesies". In my childhood i could not understand what he meant by that statement. I got the following mail few days ago, after reading that I felt that what was told in that is the perfect manifestation of "HUMAN COURTESY"

please find the story below. At the end of the story if your eyes shed tears, dont scold me. Feel glad, Coz its only a symbol that you still carry a human heart!!! Many around doesnt have one!!!

At a fundraising dinner for a school that serves children with learning disabilities, the father of one of the students delivered a speech that would never be forgotten by all who attended. After extolling the school and its dedicated staff, he offered a question: 'When not interfered with by outside influences, everything nature does, is done with perfection. Yet my son, Shay, cannot learn things as other children do. He cannot understand things as other children do. Where is the natural …

STEVE WAUGH, a name which needs no introduction in the present day of cricket. A man who taught the art of "aggressive cricket" to the cricketing community. His autobiography is nothing more than a manifestation of cricketing passion in his heart and hunger to perform in his belly. It is a consolidated journey of how a rookie with many a self doubt transformed himself into a legend of his era.

The privilege of writing the foreword to a legend's life was presented to the wall, Rahul Dravid and Steve's friend forever Tim May. Dravid recalled his first observation of Steve during the 1987 world cup and went on explaining his first encounter with Steve at the Firozshah Kotla a decade later. He also cherished receiving of the winning boundary ball from Steve and had no hesitation in acknowledging the pain of not defeating Australia in Steve's last test at SCG.

its a long time since i'm thinking to go for a trek. because of all the crap happened over the last one year or so i never gave a thought to my bliss dimension of life. whatever happened is all due to the way i'm built so i cannot escape. now comin to the trek, the trek was to antargange which is 60km from bangalore and was organised by bangalore mountaineering club. As usual i went to the trek alone by knowing which people went almost mad but i said to them "Lion hunts alone sorry now treks alone :) :)" it was actually more of crawling and jumping than walking. As the important thing is cave exploring than walking it was very good and went without any major hussle. the only big comedy happened is went the guy who came as a help to the guide felt that he mislead us to some wrong side. another important thing which i observed is children of 7-8 years age also participated. I felt glad for them, because my mom dont want me to do it even though i'm 25. most of t…

Happy birthday Ramu!

today, its 1st April. popularly known as All Fools day!!
its only a wild coincidence that some one like Ramu born on this day.
There will be many people in our lives who will help us if we ask them but there will be only a few who will help us before we asking them, and they are called as "FRIENDS". Ramu certainly belongs to that category and always my trustworthy friend. I would cherish each and every moment of my life which i spent with him, may it be in the bus journey from the college or the lunch hour or the subject discussions in the library. I still remember how he grinned at me and said "its ok" after I blasted him for neglecting the call from IITB. only he can do that. thinking about it, now I realize only very few will have that courage to face, when some one criticizes our deeds. dts the reason he is always a friend to cherish. I just wrote some memories of mine in my telugublog. I wish to write much more but space is always a limit.
once again, many happ…
