The name of the festival, Raksha Bandhan is made up of two words, Raksha (Protection) and Bandhan (Relation). On this day, a sister ties ‘Rakhi’ around her brother’s wrist while the brother undertakes an oath to protect his sister until death. He vows to stand by his sister through thick and thin. Sisters tying the sacred thread around the wrists of brothers is a symbol of attachment, meant to strengthen their bond of love.
More than a colourful, decorative silk thread, Raksha Bandhan has b
Management is not just for managers, just as leadership is not just for leaders.
We all manage, and we all lead; these are not actions reserved for only those people who happen to hold these “positions” in a company. I personally think of management and leadership as callings, and we all get these callings to manage and lead at different times, and to different degrees.

2. “For a business not to advertise is like winking at a girl in the dark. You know what you are doing but no one else does.” Stuartt H. Britt, US advertising consultant
3. “The objective of all advertising is to buy new customers at a profit. Learn what your customers cost and what they buy…spend all of your ammunition where it coun

Hiring, training and motivating employees is key to making your company distinctively superior.
1. Hiring. Be patient and hire the employees that are the best fit for the position and your company. Ensure the skills and motivation to succeed are there. Require references from a former boss, peer and director report, if appli

A good teacher must know how to arouse the interest of the pupil in the field of study for which he is responsible.
Some people excel in mastering the knowledge. Some people are skillful in imparting the knowledge. A teacher is the one who possesses both these qualities and hence is referred to as a treasure of knowledge.

In my opinion there is another phrase that explains it better……. Go with the flow…… trusting the universe(God) that He has a plan for you.
This doesn’t mean that u shouldn’t have opinions or choices, or you shouldn’t make efforts to achieve u
Dual aspect of our life - "Things are getting worse and Things are getting better" - the catch is both are happening simultaneously, but somehow we are observing only one facet at a time, which in result is giving us an instant reason to either feel the blues or to sense the delight............................................................Balance between the two will prevail.
It was on October 20th 2004, we started Spicy Flavours , and as we reach Oct 20th 2012 , we will be completing 8 years of our online existence !!!

Stop and give it a thought, how many times do we say, “I wish, I could love someone that way”? How many times have we thought about giving love, about enriching someone else’s life with our love?? Never , or maybe just few times, but not much.

Don't let your background put your back on the ground.
Where you come from doesn't define where you are going to.
