Dramatic renactments for film. This venture is a great idea for those that cannot see plays all the time. To view it as cinema is an interesting experience. Her Dark is beautiful campaign is also excellent for Indians to realize how prejudiced they are towards each other simply due to the color of another's skin!

June 18, 2014, Wednesday "Even as energy is wasted in idle talk and gossiping, so also energy is wasted in entertaining useless thoughts. Therefore, you should not waste even a single thought. Conserve all mental energy. Utilize it for higher spiritual purposes and for meditation and helpful service to humanity. Drive away from your mind all unnecessary, useless thoughts. Entertain only thoughts that are helpful and useful." Comment. The most subtle way of wasting time is thinking unnecessary thoughts. You must have an ideal to follow, a kind of a plan to avert this habit and to create a new habit of cultivation of positive thoughts. Ask yourself, "Do I need to think about this now? Is this the best way to think about the situation?" Train your mind in constructive, positive thinking - thinking that is free from fear, worry, unwise suggestions, obsessive, of failure. This requires a constant daily training.

Maya Angelou

Listen to yourself and in that quietude you might hear the voice of God.

Maya Angelou

"One isn't necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest."
