That moment when I.....

Few moments in life would remain so special to us for ever...
Those moments happen only once in our life...
Those moments make us feel that we are on top of this world....

I experienced one such moment when I received my first salary....It is the fruit of my 25 years of struggle to sustain in this tough world....May be this isn't it and there is a long way to go...but definitely I cherish this moment...

The moment I got my salary,I realized that it gave me confidence, strength and more than anything else....it gave me hope...It gave me that feeling "Yes....I started my life now"....It gave me a happiness I have never experienced that only comes with a responsibility.......

Well.... being in corporate environment is a quite exciting experience.....by the way credit goes to my cool and fun loving team....life seems to be so happening though it is same routine everyday....They say "We always get the best when we wait longer".....Hopefully this feeling would stay for a while....

To all those loving parents....

What is this strange feeling that's making me aloof from this world....It's been so many moons since I spoke to my parents with all my heart....To the matter of fact I'm not feeling like to talk to any of them who know me....I just wanted to be myself....Is it something due to the fact that I am not busy with anything....Nothing is happening in my life almost since two years....My destiny is hitting me harder and harder every new day....how do I bounce back.....Tired of doing that..... Is this me who is thinking all this?? Am I tired of my own life?? I have never been into this distressed feeling as I am right now....

Then I remembered the words my dad said to me when I was a kid"No matter what happens in your life, just be happy and have faith and hope....Never loose them...that is the ultimate essence and true meaning of one's journey...If you are at a situation where in all the roads in this world seem to be closed, just be happy and believe in yourself....One day your destiny opens a new road for you that leads to your goal".......Lots of thanks to my dad....He is the best....His words gave me so much of strength and courage that I always converted my anger and stress into positive energy.....But this time I was carried away......However not a big deal...I will bounce back this time and will give my best.......Thank you so so much nanna......
I dedicate this post to all those loving parents.....

Yeh To Sach Hai Ki Bhagwan Hai,
Hai Magar Phir Bhi Anjaan Hai,
Dharti Pe Roop Maa Baap Ka,
Us Vidhaata Ki Pehchaan Hai...

Why is Yawn Contagious?

Yawn...Yawn...Yawn...Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa....... Contagious right!!!!

But Why??

Well before we jump into that question, let's know about why do we actually yawn??

To the matter of fact, there is no particulr proven answer for that question....But a widely accepted theory by the scientists across the globe states that we tend to yawn when we feel bored or exhausted.....

Yes, scientists do not know all of the biological mechanisms of the yawn, but tend to agree that a yawn is an involuntary respiratory reflex controlled by the spinal and nerve centers, which regulates the carbon dioxide and oxygen levels in the blood.

Scientists speculate that the onset of a yawn is triggered either by fatigue, or by sheer boredom as, at those times, breathing is shallow, and little oxygen is carried to the lungs by the oxygen-toting cardiovascular system.

Why is it contagious??

Scientists explain away the "contagious" nature of yawning, that is when one person's yawn triggers another nearby to yawn, as due to the power of suggestion....It's an unconscious mirror effect - someone yawns, you yawn in response almost like a reflex. But some thinks it has to do with empathy. The more empathetic you are, the more likely it is that you'll identify with a yawner and experience a yawn yourself....

Mysteries about yawning!!!!??????

Yawning mysteries include why fetuses in the womb yawn, when it is a well-known fact that they do not intake oxygen into their lungs until after live birth, or why individuals with high concentrations of oxygen in their blood streams yawn.....

Why do tears come out of our eyes when we yawn??

Tears drain away from each eye along two channels marked by a tiny opening at the inner edge of each lid. The channels lead to the lacrimal sac at the side of the nose, which is why your nose runs when you cry. Yawning exerts pressure on the lacrimal sac causing normal tearing.

Few cool yawning facts....

The average yawn lasts about six seconds.

55 percent of people will yawn within five minutes of seeing someone else yawn.

Blind people yawn more after hearing an audio tape of people yawning.

Reading about yawning will make you yawn.

Olympic athletes often yawn before competition.

and most importantly

You might be yawning after reading this......Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh........
