I'm slowly learning that even if I react!
it won't change anything!
it won't make people suddenly love and respect me!
it won't magically change their minds!
Sometimes it's better to just let things be!
let people go!
don't fight for closure!
don't ask for explanations!
don't chase answers! and
don't expect people to understand where you're coming from! #beyourself

A Sport which is usually plyed on the festive days like Kailpod & Puttari at the "Mand" or "Kol Mand" - a Place to get together normally a big banyan tree. Kupya, chale & Mandetuni is a must (Without pant) & two Canes ( "Thoora" in Kodava language ). The game with two canes ( Thoora); 1 to block and other to hit the other person but only the legs. The person who gets hit & runs is considered to be defeated by the other & this goes on until a Winner emerges in the "Mand" or that Village & he's a Hero until next festive season. "Thoora" = Cane.
"Mand" or "Kol Mand" = Place of villagers gettogether for festival; Normally Big Banian Tree, or a Place which is concreated or stone laid so that many can sit & enjoy.

Forget what hurt you in the past, but never forget what it taught you.
However, if it taught you to hold onto grudges, seek revenge, not forgive or show compassion, to categorize people as good or bad, to distrust and be guarded with your feelings then you didn’t learn a thing.
God doesn’t bring you lessons to close your heart.He brings you lessons to open it, by developing compassion, learning to listen, seeking to understand instead of speculating, practicing empathy and developing conflict resolution through communication.
If he brought you perfect people, how would you ever learn to spiritually evolve?
