Life is too short …..

Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So love the people who treat you right.
Love the ones who don't just because you can.
Believe everything happens for a reason
If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.
If it changes your life, let it.
Kiss slowly.
Forgive quickly.
God never said life would be easy.
He just promised it would be worth it.

Mother Teresa Express


Indian Railways have decided to run an exhibition train dedicated to Nobel laureate Mother Teresa, giving an insight into her life devoted to poor and destitute. Named 'Mother Express', the train will be flagged off by Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee from Kolkata on Thursday, coinciding with Mother Teresa's 100 birthday, traversing the length and breadth of the country for the next six months.

"The train would showcase life and philanthropic deeds of this great soul who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 and India's highest civilian honour, the Bharat Ratna in 1980 for her humanitarian work," said a Railway release.

It would comprise three air-conditioned coaches in which photographs, write-ups, etc would be exhibited to project the life, work and message of Mother Teresa.

Mother Teresa was a Catholic nun who founded the Missionaries of Charity in Kolkata and who worked tirelessly in the service of the poor, sick, orphaned and destitute for over 47 years.
