  • it's much easier for any special-interest group to swing a statewide ban on a book today than it was just two decades ago. With each successive ban, we set more and more of a precedent for both a particular state and the Indian state to silence anything that doesn't fit with the preferred version of history, that offends and hurts the sentiments of a religious community, or that is just inconvenient. These are dangerous precedents to set, and with each uncontested ban, we give away a little of our own freedom…
    What we do lose with each ban, though, is the right to examine our own history…Publishing houses should be above the fear of lawsuits, so long as they believe in the author’s honesty and integrity—but many will now avoid anything too controversial. This has a devastating impact on research into the freedom movement
  • Hard work : All hard work bring a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.
    Laziness : A sleeping lobster is carried away by the water current.
    Earnings : Never depend on a single source of income. (At least make your Investments get you second earning)
    Spending : If you buy things you don't need, you’ll soon sell things you need.
    Savings : Don’t save what is left after spending; Spend what is left after saving.
    Borrowings : The borrower becomes the lender's slave.
    Accounting : It’s no use carrying an umbrella, if your shoes are leaking.
    Auditing : Beware of little expenses; A small leak can sink a large ship.
    Risk-taking : Never test the depth of the river with both feet.
    (Have an alternate plan ready )
    Investment : Don't put all your eggs in one basket.
