Hi everyone… Though its been long that I’ve been associated with Mtaram, however never been able to actively follow it. You can see as I’m writing my first post now, so please help me to improve on my post writing skills & I’ll make sure that I improvise on suggestions…..
Sahas Mehra is 17 years old and resides in Mumbai. He loves football and enjoys reading and listening to music. He started off with his very first year in college but didn’t get a chance to appear for his final exams. A month before his 17th birthday he was diagnosed with Philadelphia ALL, a high-risk blood cancer. What followed was hospital stays, transfers, complications and chemotherapy. But this was not enough. The family was told that a Bone Marrow Transplant would be essential to give him a chance to survive. There is no marrow match within the family. A Non-Related Allogenic transplant is recommended. The estimate letter provided by the hospital is for a minimum of Rs. 51 lakh (around $106250) , if complications don’t occur. This is not something the family can afford. This blog is an attempt at creating awareness about his case because financial support for the transplant is needed on an urgent basis. We also hope to create awareness about the the primary reason for the unaffordable cost of treatment – lack of a proper bone marrow registry in India.

This is from an actual trial in the UK, A young woman who was several months pregnant boarded a bus.
When She Noticed a young man smiling at her she began feeling humiliated on Account of her condition. She changed her seat and he seemed more amused. She moved again and then on her third move he burst out laughing, She had him arrested.
Then the case came before the court, the young man was asked why he acted in such a manner.
His reply was: When the lady boarded the bus I couldn’t help noticing she was pregnant. She sat under an advertisement, which read ‘Coming Soon: The Gold Dust Twins’.
I was even more amused when she sat under a shaving advertisement, which read: ‘William’s Stick Did The Trick’.
Then I could not control myself any longer when on the third move she sat under an advertisement, which read: ‘Dunlop Rubber would have prevented this accident.’
The case was dismissed!

A boy and a girl were playing together. The boy had a collection of marbles. The girl had some sweets with her. The boy told the girl that he will give her all his marbles in exchange for her sweets. The girl agreed.
The boy kept the biggest and the most beautiful marble aside and gave the rest to the girl. The girl gave him all her sweets as she had promised.
That night, the girl slept peacefully. But the boy couldn’t sleep as he kept wondering if the girl had hidden some sweets from him the way he had hidden his best marble.
Moral of the story: If you don’t give your hundred percent in a relationship, you’ll always keep doubting if the other person has given his/her hundred percent.. This is applicable for any relationship like love.
Give your hundred percent to everything you do and sleep peacefully.
