Personal - A Thought For Today
It's an age old saying, if I'm right, I suppose this was said by the Machiavelli of India, Chanakya.
All friendship is in a way self-interest.
It's true to some extent, but great friendship always rises above self-interest, one that doesn't care for money, status, position, or whatever. Friends because we are friends, that's it.
I always try to see that I'm above self-interest in friendship and that's why I never say No in matters of money or in help. Sometimes the experiences are bad and one feels people take advantage, but that hasn't stopped me from rising above self-interest in friendship.
So the thought for today for me is.
All friendship is in a way self-interest, but great friendship always rises above self-interest and Chirayu always keep on making friends like you do, with an open heart, an open mind, and your life as an open book.
I remember Uday telling me this (way back in early 2003 in Bangalore), "you're like an open book, everything is so in your face about you, the good and the bad."
