Should I Take the Risk?

Image
Risk is something most of us don't like taking but the truth is it is all around us. Life is a risk itself! If we have ever thought of the risk involved in sleeping and possibly not waking up, we won't be sleeping at all - because waking up or not is a 50-50 chance. It's not guaranteed! How about the risk involved in investment? This too is a probability - what we're investing in may or may not yield high returns but we still invest anyway.

In like manner, relationships too are full of risks. Someone once told me that some unmarried guys are afraid of commitments.

a love
that never ends
begins with friendship
that never melts
firm always will it remain
irrespective of separation or distance

where hunger is
the order of the day

why i had to leave her

Saw it on Gizmodo.com, loved it ad posted it here. How would it feel like to have a tech cake for your wedding?

Pity the poor baker who had to ice USB logos, smiley-emoticons, power symbols, @ signs and all that syntax. Guess it was easier than icing...
