    Dear RGS,

    A nice post!

    Yes, many times we take for granted the good services and gestures by our near and dear ones. When we recognise and thank the whole atmosphere changes.

    Very often I think and thank God for a normal life, normal food and normal sleep.

    Often the value of normalcy is realised and recognised only when something becomes abnormal!

    Dear RGS,

    Nice one... Enjoyed.... We take lot of things for granted...

    Though you reminded me of my role in my organisation... Though lot of people know about me... Nobody knows me... hahahahahahahaha... I am happy that way....

    We humans take everything for granted... In accounting terms going concern concept... hahahahahaha...

    We take our wife, kids for granted... We take for granted that we will be there for tomorrow...

    The list can keep going...

    Enjoy....

    A fantastic last line made your nice feedback even more beautiful, Suryakala. Thanks a lot. And yes, we tend to take God for granted too and often complain, without doing our part. -rgs

    Pleasant surprise it is, to receive from you, Sir. How are you?
    And yes, sometimes, in order to show our worth which otherwise goes unnoticed, we tend to think about absconding for a brief period. :)
    But we'll then start banishing ourselves for what we did. Beyond a point, we may not look for being recognized, other than from our very own self. And, you know this. Don't you? The greatest certificate someone can get is always from the spouse. -rgs

    Dear RGS,

    I am good.... Hope you & family is fine....

    I only wish I can abscond for a brief period.....:rotfl:rotfl:thumbsup...

    I do not want any recognition.... You know, only when people have expectations from you... you have to live and keep proving... So, I am always happy to stay away from these things...

    I agree with your point... But, you know, I have one of the toughest spouse... She will not hesitate to call a spade a spade.... Getting a compliment or certificate from her....:bonk:bonk:bang
    So... Just...:coffee.. hahahahahahahaha...

    Enjoy...

    Congratulations Veda Sir, on being blessed with a wonderful person as your spouse. Its always better to have a spouse who is like our inner conscience than being just someone who tries to please.

    Besides, not wanting a recognition is a bit rare, anyday. So, I recognize you as a rare person in that regard. :)
    Happy new year to you all.

    And thanks for your feedback. -rgs

    Lovely post !...even the feedbacks carry high values. It is not only about thanking them but also giving them the due respect. Also, teaching the next generation not to under rate the services of these "man Fridays". My 6 year old son has the habit of saying thank you to the "auto uncle" everytime he alights from the auto. Lot of times I learn from my kids ! Cheers to these unknown and known faces who make life easy in a lot of ways :)

    Regards
    Vidhya

    First of all, thanks a lot Vidhya, for your appreciation and feedback. And yes, its important that we realize and show it to our children as well. But the best part is that, we need to make an effort to reach out our helpers, whereas our children do that naturally [while they still aren't corrupt like us]. Thats a lovely point that you brought up. Happy to receive a first from you. -rgs
