The Ten Commandments

So what do you do on a lazy Saturday morning?
I came up with these:
1. Tell your Mom about your bad habits before she gets to know about them.
2. Perspicaciousness might save you from making many a mistake. Be informed. It'll give you a clear sight of the situation.
3. A smile is the best thing you can wear.
4. Your family is your best emotional investment.
5. Respect the feelings someone has for you, even if you can't reciprocate.
6. Discover yourself. Each day. The rest will fall in place.
7. If you want the honey don't kick the hive. That is, there are better ways of getting your work done than showing your temper.
8. Be true to the dreams of your youth.
9. Learn to cook well. It's very difficult to be angry at someone who has just fed you a delicious meal.
10. Learn to love yourself in order to love others. Begin by forgiving first.

And here's the original Decalogue that God gave to Moses on Mount Sinai:

You can add your list of commandments :)

Ye rahe mere dus...

1. Look at yourself in the mirror everyday and feel good about it rather than complaining about that extra bit of flab or that bone protruding at the nape of the neck.
2. Not everybody is going to like you so stop trying to impress everybody.
3. Honesty does pay in the long run. its better to be reckoned as an honest human being rather than being a succesful dishonest sly.
4. The better part of a conversation is listening more so when it comes to dating couples. Listen to the lady and give attention to her words rest will follow without burning a hole in the pocket.
5. One must have some extra curricular activity. I belive there is an artist in everyone.
6. Relationships should be like the shadow after the afternoon - its small initially and then grows gradually.
7. People who drive fast meet fatal accidents. this is true not only for real life driving but also friendships,relationships, decision making blah blah blah
8. Spend some time with yourself everyday just to take a stock of the things.
9. fate chooses your parents you choose your friends.
10. Love should be caring enough not to hold too tightly.

Talking of The Ten Commandments, the Vatican took time out from strict theological preaching on 19th June 2007 to issue the following Ten Commandments on the moral aspects of driving. You can see the original 36-page compendium
here. For the Ten Commandments read paragraph 61. After reading these I remember that you are always scared of woman drivers. Har…har…har.

I. You shall not kill.
II. The road shall be for you a means of communion between people and not of mortal harm.
III. Courtesy, uprightness and prudence will help you deal with unforeseen events.
IV. Be charitable and help your neighbour in need, especially victims of accidents.
V. Cars shall not be for you an expression of power and domination, and an occasion of sin.
VI. Charitably convince the young and not so young not to drive when they are not in a fitting condition to do so.
VII. Support the families of accident victims.
VIII. Bring guilty motorists and their victims together, at the appropriate time, so that they can undergo the liberating experience of forgiveness.
IX. On the road, protect the more vulnerable party.
X. Feel responsible towards others.

Thanks for the commandments for exams Candid. Make sure your kids don't skip one or two specially the Commandment III.
Thou shalt eat breakfast the morning of an exam.

I saw that article on Vatcian's new commandments on driving some days ago. Good idea to spread a social message. Maybe there will be lesser Paris Hiltons or Lindsay Lohans now. ( Shit! I'm naming women again!)
Hush! I am not scared of "women" drivers in general, but women drivers who seem always confused about how to turn the car or when to pull a break. I don't have a driving license yet, but I hope if I learn to drive , I'll practice enough before I hit the road. Because one thing I'll hate more than not learning to drive is learning to drive poorly.
Btw, you should see my Dad driving someday. He used to drive recklessly when he dropped me at school. I resorted to pretending that I'm on a joyride in an amusement park so I felt less scared. But even then I insisted he should drive me to school , in stead of the driver and I should be allowed to sit next to him. Maybe it was faith that bound me to him. That binds me to him. And I knew - no matter what- I'll reach school safe :)

arnab said...

girl, i didn't know you have "bad habits"!!!! and i like you commandment 9 - that's a critical factor for world peace :-)

oh, and you should be having breakfast every morning, regardless of an impending exam.

as far as women drivers are concerned, i don't think they have any more problems with turning or breaking than men. but show me a man driving a big suv while talking on the phone and putting on makeup at the same time :-)

Aparna Kar said...

I have "bad habits" that only my mom knows about :D
"critical factor for world peace" LOL I liked that. I hope the other guys are taking notes too :P
Okkk.. I have started having fruits for breakfast now. Saves me a lot of effort. Just peel and have. And sometimes- don't even do that. Cold fruits and milk make the best meal for me anytime. I hope my better half learns to cook well or prefers to eat raw- coz I'm a bit lazy when it comes to cooking everyday. It's an art, it should be done only on occasions -right?

Whoa.. too idealistic.. Even if u think of making 10, i cant. cause i dont think working by rules is the best way to get the best out of it.. And the above four lines that i have written might as well be an escapism for my shying away from work, all my life!

Aparna Kar said...

@bad Wulf
Was that a compliment? :O
Anyways. I got to know who Bad Wulf is.. so no point using his name to comment... coz he'll tell me which ones are his..

My 10 Commandments
1) Love unconditionally when you do.
2) Not expect everyone to thank you and give you credit, for even Jesus was thanked by only one of his disciples.
3) Remember to see things from the other person's point of view before blaming him/her for something.
4) Always give others a second chance to prove themselves, but NEVER a third chance.
5) Remember that you are important, and so are your words, even if no one else thinks so.
6) Realize that there is a first step to every journey.
7) Respect others. Only those who can respect others is worthy of respect for himself
8) Accept it when you make a mistake. Sorry bolne se koi chhota nahi hota.
9) Always thank others. Remember how you felt when they didn't thank you.
10) Remember that silence is not always golden.
