Ex Indian President Dr. Abdul Kalam Says:

"When I was a kid, my Mom cooked food for us.

One night in particular when she had made dinner after a long hard day's work, Mom placed a plate of 'subzi' and extremely burnt roti in front of my Dad.

I was waiting to see if anyone noticed the burnt roti. But Dad just ate his roti and asked me how was my day at school.

I don't remember what I told him that night, but I do remember I heard Mom apologizing to Dad for the burnt roti.

And I'll never forget what he said: "Honey, I love burnt roti."

Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy, good night & I asked him if he really liked his roti burnt. He wrapped me in his arms & said:

"Your momma put in a long hard day at work today and she was really tired. And besides... A burnt roti never hurts anyone but HARSH WORDS DO!"

"You know beta - life is full of imperfect things... & imperfect people..."

I'M NOT THE BEST & AM HARDLY GOOD AT ANYTHING!


I forget birthdays & anniversaries just like everyone else.

What I've learnt over the years is: To Accept Each Others Faults & Choose To Celebrate Relationships"

Life Is Too Short To Wake Up With Regrets..

Love the people who treat you right & have compassion for the ones who don't.
