P for Pinocchio

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.
Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities
English novelist (1812 – 1870)

This blog is dedicated to my sister-in-law and all those like her who served as a trigger for me to see the world from a whole new perspective. My sister-in-law holds the honor of posing some of the greatest challenges on me and my family, and helped us better understand what matters most in life. If not for her, I would not be involved in a noble cause called “Save Indian Family”. If not for her I would not have met some of the most passionate and wonderful human beings. If not for her I would have not got an opportunity to practice the ideals that I stood for all my life. May god bless her with a long life so that she may understand how she has helped lay the foundation for social change!

P.S. I have to specifically thank one person, Gokul, whose blog not only helped me heal but also filled me with inspiration during the toughest times in year 2006. Here is the link to his blog: http://gokulpr.tripod.com/mysideofstory/main.htm which is also an inspiration for my own blog.

  1. Cool! Sometimes you need to experience rock bottom to know how it feels to be on top of the mountain! :-))

    What a polite way to rub salt into the SIL’s wounds!
