Daughters of Ganges

Touching story

vikas chandra

A riddle of kinds, in a shroud of white, where is that Paavi, who loved her life
Lo and behold that angel’s birth, how tramped on daisies, little feet of mirth
Now cuffed to a timeless mire of slurs, a widow they discern, “a dead man’s wife!”
Nothing afore, afar that hearth, kindled pyre of a woman’s worth

Kashi has aged a thousand years with many more years of Paavi’s woe
Beside the Ganges, her endless flow, once a darling daughter’s squandered glow
Surrogate profound, a mother found, dissolved her allure many moons ago
In dusky digs, now a sinking shadow, a gambled life, easy come easy go

Through splintered sense, as she recounts, a Bangla bride from a hamlet afar

Solemnized by fire, a ritual bizarre, widowed next day, a…

The NRA

Wee have had many shooting here in Savannah GA and around the world. Does the NRA really cares about us? Or just about selling guns! All of the school shootings you would think that they cared about the children; I guess they don’t have kids they are dying left and right, day and night.

They’re not even trying to come up with a solution on how to stop these crimes that are happing. Just Saturday a 12 yr. old was shot and died to day around 3:00 p.m. Sunday. and before that a 2yr. old was sleeping and her house was shot up when the family was sleeping all were in side minding their own business. Well, they were sleeping cannot mind your own business more than that! the NRA won’t stop until they are sued for at lease 2.2 Trillion dollars; you cannot put a price on someones lives but that is a good start.

We need to band together too put an end to these senseless killings. Not just here but all over the world

Remembering Robin Williams

He will be missed..

It’s 2008, moments before a BBC broadcast live from the stage at TED. But something’s gone wrong. The house lights are still up, the camera ops are looking at one another, official-looking folks are wandering at the stage apron muttering into headsets, and the panelists are sitting patiently onstage but looking, increasingly, baffled. Minutes go by.

And then a voice rises from the audience, wondering “why at a technology conference everything is running so shittily”! As Kim Zetter wrote: “at least that’s the word I think he used; it was hard to hear the last word through the audience’s laughter.” It was Robin Williams, who’d spent the day watching TED, and who now jumped out of the audience to grab the mic and reel off 10 or 15 minutes — reports vary — of improvised…

The Next Financial Crises!

This is a great question to ask yourself; Especailly in small business it takes a lot of cash to start it up and even more keeping it going. And sometimes you may need to use your personal assets. This is the time to get a financial planner and an Accountant to keep you from having any kind of crises or keep it to a minimum, must have people you can trust.

Sometimes, you may want to use some of your personal asset, this maybe a good idea for a small business owner for tax purposes this works well if your a sole proprietorship owner. However, this means you are responible for making that money back so you can live on and even make more. Makes sure that when you use you computer(s) keep track of the percent of time that you use it for personal use and business use it make help with deductions, this would mean that you would have to keep up with the deprecation and what the item is worth now a few years after you have bought the item the deprecation start when you start your business take half off and then devide that by a certain amount times the % that you use it per day per month.

Keep in mind to get to see anything from this it will take time it takes time too recover from such a lost. But it can be worth it in the long term of your goal. Remember this the fair market value at the time of the conversion, or the cost plus any additions or improvements that maybe needed; minus any kind of deduction casualty losses, up to the time of conversion.

I did get some of this from Business Owner’s Tool Kit online (Biz filings).
