A touching love story that will make u cry

♦"A touching love story that 'll make u cry"♦


10th Grade:-

As I sat there in English class,

I stared at the girl next to me.

She was my so called 'best friend'.

I stared at her long, silky hair, and wished she was mine.

But she didn't notice me like that, and I knew it.

After class,

she walked up to me and asked me for the notes she had missed the day before.

I handed them to her.She said 'thanks' and gave me a kiss on the cheek.

I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don't want to be just friends,

I love her but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why.

11th grade:-

The phone rang. On the other end,

it was her. She was in tears, mumbling on
and on about how her love had broke her heart.

She asked me to come over because she didn't want to be alone, So I did.

As I sat next to her on the sofa, I stared at her soft eyes, wishing she was mine.

After 2 hours,

one Drew Barrymore movie, and three bags of chips,

she decided to go home. She looked at me, said 'thanks'
and gave me a kiss on the cheek..I want to tell her,I want her to know that

I don't want to be just friends,

I love her but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why.

Senior year:-

One fine day she walked to my locker.

"My date is sick" she said, "hes not gonna go" well,

I didn't have a date, and in 7th grade,

we made a promise that if neither of us had dates,

we would go together just as 'best friends'.

So we did.

That night, after everything was over, I was standing at her front door step.

I stared at her as She smiled at me and stared at me with her crystal eyes.

Then she said- "I had the best time, thanks!" and gave me a kiss on the cheek.

I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don't want to be just friends,

I love her but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why.

Graduation:-

A day passed, then a week, then a month.

Before I could blink, it was graduation day.

I watched as her perfect body floated like an angel up on stage to get her diploma.

I wanted her to be mine-but she didn't notice me like that, and I knew it.

Before everyone went home, she came to me in her smock and hat,
and cried as I hugged her.

Then she lifted her head from my shoulder and said- 'you're my best friend,

thanks' and gave me a kiss on the cheek.

I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don't want to be just friends,

I love her but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why.

Marriage:-

Now I sit in the pews of the church.

That girl is getting married now. and drive off to her new life,
married to another man.

I wanted her to be mine, but she didn't see me like that, and I knew it.

But before she drove away, she came to me and said 'you came !'.

She said 'thanks' and kissed me on the cheek.

I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don't want to be just friends,

I love her but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why.

Death:-

Years passed, I looked down at the coffin of a girl who used to be my 'best friend'.

At the service, they read a diary entry she had wrote in her high school years.

This is what it read:

'I stare at him wishing he was mine, but he doesn't notice me like that,
and I know it.

I want to tell him, I want him to know that I don't want to be just friends,

I love him but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why.

I wish he would tell me he loved me !

I thought to my self,
………" I wish I did too "……….

my Eyes r filled with Tears…. and one Drop just skipped out :O

Meet the man who gave us the rupee symbol

Rupee symbol TheOnlineTutorials.com

Image: D Udaya Kumar, the creator of the Rupee symbol.

The young man, who has given the Indian rupee a symbol, has been relentlessly pursuing a little-known art called typography over the last five years.

He took up this specialised subject despite opposition from his parents, who wanted to him to become a doctor or an IAS officer.

On July 15, D Udaya Kumar became more famous than most doctors or IAS officers in India. He has achieved celebrity status after his design for the Indian rupee currency was approved by the government on Thursday.

“It is a great honour to be a part of India’s history,” said an excited Udaya while speaking with rediff.com.

The 31-year-old PhD-holder from IIT-Bombay who was set to join as a professor at IIT-Guwahati’s department of design on Friday had to postpone the date of joining after he heard that his design had been chosen as the rupee symbol. He has been talking to the Indian and international media incessantly. His cellphone didn’t stop ringing till late into the night.

At the Indian Institute of Technology, Udaya Kumar has been pursuing research in esoteric subjects like evolution of the ancient Tamil script from palm leaf etching to printing press. His ultimate aim is to resurrect regional language scripts in India.

“India has some of the greatest scripts in the world, but unfortunately they have not been studied properly and in a scientific manner,” says this ardent admirer of Van Gogh ma sterpieces.

Indian schoolchildren form the shape of the new symbol for the Rupee at a school in Chennai. India unveiled a symbol for its rupee currency that it hopes will become as globally recognised as signs for the dollar, the yen, the pound and the Euro. Ministers made their final decision at a cabinet meeting after examining a shortlist of five designs. The winning design was inspired by the letter “R” in the Roman alphabet and “Ra” from the ancient Devanagari script used in Hindi

About Vishu 2010 (Malayalam New Year in Kerala)

 
Vishu 2010 ? Zodiac Malayalam New Year in Kerala

 Vishu is the New Year of Malayalis ? it is the astronomical or zodiac New Year in Kerala and is observed on the first day of the Malayalam month of ?medam.? In 2010, the date of Vishu is April 15. Historically the festival is closely associated with the agrarian economy of Kerala ? a state is the southern part of India. The highlight of the festival is Vishukani, Vishukaineetam and Vishubhalam.

Please note that in 2010, Medam 1 is marked on April 14 but Vishu is celebrated on April 15. This is because the Surya Sankramana takes place late on April 14.

The Vishu day celebrations begin with the ?Vishukani.? ?Vishu Kani? is the first auspicious thing that people see on the day and this takes place during the Brahma Muhurta or ideally between 0400 hrs and 0600 hrs.

The ?Vishukani? is usually prepared on the night before the Vishu day. Immediately on awakening from sleep, people close their eyes and proceed towards the place where Vishukani is placed. This is known as Kani Kanal ? kani means ?that which is seen first.?

Vishukani consists of rice, kasavu mundu (traditional cloth of Kerala), gold, silver, coins, mirror (usually Aranmula Kannadi or mirror with a tail), cucumber, mango, jackfruit, coconut, banana, and Kanikonna (yellow flower known as Indian Laburnum). The Vishukani is exhibited in an ?urali? ? a traditional vessel of Kerala. It is placed in front of an idol or portrait of Lord Krishna. Traditional Kerala lamp is lit near it.

Then, the eldest member in the family gives ?Vishukaineetam? to the family members. The Vishukaineetam is usually coins but nowadays people also prefer other expensive gifts. Hindus then worship at nearby Sri Krishna temples.

Vegetarian food, consisting of traditional Kerala fare, is prepared on the day and includes the mouthwatering ?payasam.?

From an astrological point of view, Vishu is of immense significance. The day and night are of equal duration on the Vishu day (12 hours). ?Vishubhalam? or the predictions for the next year is read on the day.

The preparation for next agricultural season begins on the Vishu day. Earlier, farmers used to plough the land on this day and it was referred as ?Vishupootu.?

It must be noted that Vishu is not the first day in the regional solar calendar followed in Kerala. The Malayalam Calendar begins in Chingam (August).

 

Vishukani, or Vishukkani, is an assortment of auspicious things that is viewed when one opens one?s eyes on the day of Vishu festival. ?Kani? means ?that which is seen first.? And Vishukani, that which is seen first on Vishu, is an indispensable part of this Kerala festival. Vishu is the Zodiac New Year in Kerala. The list of auspicious items varies from region to region and most often depends on the availability of the item.

How to arrange Vishukani

Main attraction of Vishu is Vishukani. It is a ritual arrangement in the pooja room with konna poovu(yellow flower seen above fig.), rice, coins, fruits etc.
Ashtamangalyam, eight auspicious things, are a must for Vishu. This includes:

  • A large vessel called Uruli made of panchaloham ? five metals – or normal Uruli or clean tray.
  • Tamboolam – Betel leaves
  • Akshatam ? a mixture of rice and turmeric
  • Dharu cheppu ? Kumukumam in a small container
  • Grantham ? Book usually Bhagavad Gita
  • Darpanam ? Mirror usually Aranmula kanadi
  • Ambaram ? Cloth ? A nice clean traditional Kerala mundu (Kodi mundu)
  • Kramugam: Betel nut

The Ashtamangalyam is common in the arrangement of Vishukani in various regions.

  • Next most important item on the list is the Kanikonna, a yellow color flower found throughout Kerala during the Vishu season.

Most people are ready to give a miss to most items in the long Vishukani list but not the Kanikonna. It is a must for all people.

Fruits and Vegetables

  • Mango fruit along with its small branches and leaves
  • Two or more Coconuts with its branch (Thenga Kula)
  • At least two Cashew nuts along with small branches and leaves
  • Small jackfruit (idichakka)
  • Pineapple
  • Golden colored cucumber (Kani Vellari)
  • Bananas
  • And other fresh vegetables

Metals

  • Gold
  • Coins
  • Nirapara (A measuring vessel filled with un-husked rice)
  • Kindi (A traditional vessel with a tail used to keep water)

Those people who do not have an uruli usually use any clean tray.

The auspicious items are kept in front of an idol of Lord Krishna. The items are either placed in an uruli or sliver plate. Items that don?t fit into the tray or uruli are placed nearby. Traditional Kerala lamp ? Nila Vilakku ? is lit.

In some places the traditional Kerala mundu is made into a fan shape and is inserted in the Kindi. The mirror is also inserted in it.

The Vishukani is arranged on the previous night. Usually the eldest female member in the family sleeps in the room in which the Vishukani is prepared. She wakes up early in the morning and lights the lamp (between 4 am and 6 am). She then closes the eyes of each person in the family and guides each person to the Vishukani.

After the Vishukani, the eldest member in the family distributes the Vishukaineetam ? a coin.
