How are you? How are Nikhat, Saleem and their sweet sons?
I am writing this letter from Edmonton, Canada. Vijaya and I came to North America on 25th of May 2006 on a trip. We spent about two weeks here in Edmonton, associating our elder daughter Aparna and her family.
We are planning to go to Seattle, USA to our Son’s place on June 10, 2006.
Please convey our best regards to Madam [Panthulamma] and your dear son and son-in-law.

The Beauty of Simplicity
1]"There is great freedom in simplicity. When you remove unnecessary layers and unnecessary burdens you have the clarity to see what is really important. Simplify whenever you can...for those who have enough but not too much will find true beauty in their success."
2] This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever, in its place is something that you have left behind...let it be something good.
3] Your true character is revealed by the clarity of your convictions, the choices you make, and the promises you keep. Hold strongly to your principles and refuse to follow the currents of convenience. What you say and do defines who you are, and who you are…you are forever.
4] A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one by the quality of his actions and the integrity of his intent. In the end, leaders are much like eagles...they don't flock, you find them one at a time.
