Me and My World

I am always stuck with questions in my life. Starting form which job to go from to which cloth to were today. I have made some tough decisions like to leave the job at Mahindra and Join Neilsoft as a Software QA engineer, but now I do not regret my decision and I am happy with my job. They is another problem in my life, which has the same problem of predicament (the meaning I mean here is dilemma i.e. a decision which is my career desired) which I can not disclose it right now.
Another problem with me is I am charming I am some what attractive(as friends say and I believe) but I have never been good with girls to the point that I could offer them my love. I miss this love factor in my life very much. Now, I am frustrated and stopped thinking of girls in a way to even to offer them my friendship.

God help me with my confusions and lets hope my decisions turn up right and I could achieve what I aim.

And Forgive Me . .

You forgive me for liking you too much,And I'll forgive you for not liking me enough.

You forgive me for missing you so,And I'll forgive you for being so cold.

You forgive me for the loud racing of my heart,And I'll forgive you for not hearing it.

You forgive me for playing your games,And I'll forgive you for toying with my emotions.

You forgive me for finding you so attractive,And I'll forgive you for not noticing.

You forgive me for raising you up so high,And I'll forgive you for bringing me down so low.

You forgive me for wanting to be with you,And I'll forgive you for avoiding me.

You forgive me for being so pathetic,And I'll forgive you for taking advantage of it.

You forgive me for not being able to let go,And I'll forgive you for never having latched on.

You forgive me for having hopes and dreams,And I'll forgive you for crushing them . . .

Always Hope for the Best..

God answers prayers in 3 ways...He says YES and gives u what u want....He says NO and gives u something better....He says WAIT and gives u the best...!!

Friendship....

Friendship is like the breeze,You can't hold it,Smell it,Taste it,Or know when it's coming,But you can always feel it,And you'll always know it's there,It may come and then go,But you can know it'll always be back. No one can go back and make a brand new start.
But you can always start from now and make a brand new ending.

"SAVING IS SIN, SPENDING IS VIRTUE"

-- Written by an Indian Economist

Japanese save a lot. They do not spend much. Also Japan exports far
more than it imports. Has an annual trade surplus of over $100
billions. Yet Japanese economy is considered weak, even collapsing.

Americans spend, save little. Also US imports more than it exports.
Has an annual trade deficit of over $400 billion. Yet, the American
economy is considered strong and trusted to get stronger.

But where from do Americans get money to spend?

They borrow from Japan, China and even India. Virtually others save
for the US to spend. Global savings are mostly invested in US, in
dollars. India itself keeps its foreign currency assets of over $50
billions in US securities. China has sunk over $160 billion in US
securities. Japan's stakes in US securities is in trillions.

Result:

The US has taken over $5 trillion from the world. So, as the world
saves for the US, Americans spend freely. Today, to keep the US
consumption going, that is for the US economy to work, other countries
have to remit $180 billion every quarter, which is $2 billion a day,
to the US! Otherwise the US economy would go for a six.

So will the global economy. The result will be no different if US
consumers begin consuming less.

A Chinese economist asked a neat question. Who has invested more, US
in China, or China in US? The US has invested in China less than half
of what China has invested in US. The same is the case with India. We
have invested in US over $50 billion. But the US has invested less
than $20 billion in India.

Why the world is after US?

The secret lies in the American spending, that they hardly save. In
fact they use their credit cards to spend their future income. That
the US spends is what makes it attractive to export to the US. So US
imports more than what it exports year after year.

The result:

The world is dependent on US consumption for its growth. By its
deepening culture of consumption, the US has habituated the world to
feed on US consumption. But as the US needs money to finance its
consumption, the world provides the money.

It's like a shopkeeper providing the money to a customer so that the
customer keeps buying from the shop. If the customer will not buy, the
shop won't have business, unless the shopkeeper funds him. The US is
like the lucky customer. And the world is like the helpless shopkeeper
financier.

Who is America's biggest shopkeeper financier?

Japan of course. Yet it's Japan which is regarded as weak. Modern
economists complain that Japanese do not spend, so they do not grow.
To force the Japanese to spend, the Japanese government exerted it
self, reduced the savings rates, even charged the savers. Even then
the Japanese did not spend (habits don't change, even with taxes, do
they?). Their traditional postal savings alone is over $1.2 trillions,
about three times the Indian GDP.

Thus, savings, far from being the

Strength of Japan has become its pain.

Hence, what is the lesson?

That is, a nation cannot grow unless the people spend, not save. Not
just spend, but borrow and spend. Dr. Jagdish Bhagwati, the famous
Indian-born economist in the US, told Manmohan Singh that Indians
wastefully save. Ask them to spend, on imported cars and, seriously,
even on cosmetics! This will put India on a growth curve.

"Saving is sin, and spending is virtue." Before you follow this neo
economics, get some fools to save so that you can borrow from them and
spend.

This is what US has successfully done in last few decades.


Really thought provoking!!!
