hitch writer said...

we need some one like him

Indian Home Maker said...

Now I know once again why I admire him so much. It is relevant here in India too.

Sunita said...

Love that last line. Heck, I love all of it !
If only he had lived in India, we would've had this quote framed and put up in every govt. office. Then what would the politicos, and everyone else who profits by playing one against the other, have done !

@prashant, itni saari sahi baatein ek saath bol dee :)

@mia, thanks!

@renuDi, yes, those are some very good rules

aneri_masi said...

@tanu, am addicted to StumbleUpon these days. I literally stumbled upon it!

@xh, not just the reservation thing, ALL of what Abe says seems applicable to India these days :(

@sourish, yep!

aneri_masi said...

@hitch, totally!

@ihm, yep, its applicable just about everywhere!

@sunita, he needs to be there NOW. Gandhi was just as good as him in giving such advice, all that poor soul is doing now is hanging on walls!

Ria said...

That was really good!! :)

Reveda said...

This is exactly what we need to make this world a beautiful place.........

Liked your blog....good for you to talk talk and talk.... as your talking makes sense...unlike others!

Came here after reading your comment on MM blog on that magazine waala post.... wanted to write my views there but then going by the past decided against doing that.

DeeplyDip said...

so true...esp the last one...often people think that helping a person means doing what they should actually be doing...

Lakshmi Bharadwaj said...

agreed with Reveda...if all could understand what lincoln said, the world would be a much more peaceful place!!

time miley toh apna award mere blog se colllect kar liyo :)

aneri_masi said...

@ria, thanks dear :)

@reveda, thanks for your sweet words. And I know exactly what you mean by not wanting to comment there. But darne ka nahi. Its ok, say what you need to say over there too :)
BTW, your baby is absolutely precious :)

@deeply, yes. Some how I feel it applies more to parents than to anyone else. Lot of folks try to GIVE the world to their kids instead of teaching them how to GET it themselves!

@lakshmi, yes, simple rules, but very difficult to follow.

tearsndreams said...

Hey just came here to clarify I didn't mean you when I said 'that woman'. I am not that rude :-(
I meant the woman MM was ranting abt.
neways nice blog, I am sure I will be back for more.

Chirag said...

Abe has always been a almost perfect leader. And Abe Rocks :)

aneri_masi said...

@t&d, no problem. Me sorry too that I jumped so soon to a silly conclusion :) And am so glad you liked it here

@chirag, I don't know a lot about Abe and his policies. This is kind of inspiring me to dig around and find out more about him

Abby said...

And I agree! Well said, Lincoln!
