As a part of its mission to protect natural lands and preserve the environment for all people, Earth Day Network developed The Canopy Project. Rather than focusing on large scale forestry, The Canopy Project plants trees that help communities – especially the world’s impoverished communities sustain themselves and their local economics. Trees reserve the impacts of land degradation and provide food, energy and income, helping communities to achieve long term economic and environmental sustainability. Trees also filter the air and help stave off the effects of climate change.

When the reality of increasingly unpredictable weather patterns and more frequent and violent storms and floods, tree cover to prevent devastating soil erosion has never been more important. That’s why, in 2012, Earth Day Network made a commitment with the Global Poverty Project to plant 10 million trees over the next five years in impoverished areas of the world. Please join to help make this commitment a reality.pawalphagood


Existence alone is not success ! Its a lot more!

  • Do more than exist —  Live
  • Do more than touch—  Feel
  • Do more than look—  observe
  • Do more than read—  absorb
  • Do more than hear—  Listen
  • Do more than listen–  Understand.         



This is like the little boy who says when he becomes a big boy , he will do this and that and will be happy. And when he becomes a big boy he says that when he finishes college he will be happy. And when he finishes college he says that when he gets job he will be happy . And when he gets his job he says that when he gets married he will be happy. And when he gets married he says when the kids get out of the school he will be happy.

And when the kids get out of the school he says that when he retires he will be happy. And when he retires, what does he see? He sees life has just gone by in front of his eyes.

This is an extract from Shiv Kher’s book “YOU CAN WIN”

Miracles happen everyday, change your perception of what a miracle is and you will see them all around you.


If there is no struggle, there is no progress


You have enemies? That’s good. It means you have stood up for something,sometime in your life.


The only true wisdom is in knowing that you know nothing.


Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.


Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.


Freedom is the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.


If you tell the truth you don’t have to remember anything.


Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.


Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.


Opportunity is missed by many people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.


We must use time as a tool not as a couch.

It is always very disappointing to read one’s own writing, One feel how ignorant one was!

Poets make much of death and external afflictions, but the only tragedies are the soul’s failures , when their heart sank in the deepest ocean which again cannot be brought up with any means of  up liftment, That’s the writing of a writer where he feels the pain of the heart which is crying for what it has lost. And the only epic man’s triumphant ascent towards godhead.

All their speech writing and action comes prepared out of the eternal silence.

Even the souls of their feet have got a memory of their own.

They completely live in their writings. It is their eternal world.


When i look back on my past life, I see that if I had not failed and suffered, I would have lost my life’s supreme blessings. yet at the time of the suffering and failure, I was vexed with the sense of calamity.

What I cannot do now is , sign off what i shall do hereafter. The sense of impossibility is the beginning of all possibilities.

Impossibilities is only sum of greater unrealized possibilities. It veils an advance state and yet unaccomplished journey.

Life is moving very fast but i feel it like is moving like a slug. No love no loathe lno happiness. Just living like a moron, nincompoop …

One thing i understood is Life is not what we make it, But it is what God destined it for people like Me.
