Not for sale

He was a very rich man. He went on upmarket holidays but everywhere he was alone. He could buy any girl he wanted but he didnt receive true love from any one of them. He bought a mansion but he couldnt find a home. Spent his money on pleasurable gambling but he never found the peace that came from indulging in pure nature. He went to expensive restaurants but he never experienced the humble pleasure of a home-made meal. He had a Mercedes but he couldnt find happy times in the car with family. He paid for a fancy party at a five star hotel but those mates left after the party. He had a mega Entertainment system at home but he didnt hear laughter. He had everything but he was a prisoner within his own self for freedom didnt exist in a shop. He became very old so he paid for doctors to take care of him but he couldnt see anyone around his bed...all those girls, mates, colleagues, party animals, mansions, clothes etc none of them were permanent. And companionship, love, home, peace, humbleness, happy times, family&friends, laughter, freedom and care were not for sale.

AM I THE FIRST ONE TO READ THIS...LOVE SHOWERIN...HEART TOUCHING...SAD STORY OF AN OLD GUY.....KESHI I M WONDERING IF THIS OLD GUY IS SABY

southpaw said...

Those were some hard facts of life keshi...Your posts are getting better and better these days..:)

Keshi said...

hehe Priti huggy! nope this is definitely not Saby...this is what happens to most rich selfish single dudes...they think they have it all...but they dont and by the time they realise that it's too late.

Thanks Southpaw...hehe did I use to bore u before? lol!

Keshi.

southpaw said...

No u didnt bored me earlier, its just that u r getting better every post...:)

firacub said...

Quite true Keshu..
But there are some miserable souls like me who have nothing inspite of having everything..

Peace,
Firacub.

Thë Icè Þr¡ñce§§ said...

true. stuff like this mostly happens to ppl who think money is everything. and dat money can buy anything they want and keep em happy, but inside they just are miserable. prolly more miserable den poor ppl wid love/family/tenderness.

rite na.
cool post
^_^

musings (m000nie) said...

this is what is going to happen to all those guys who think money is everything in the world... when they r young they find happiness..but later on they know that all this was a mirage..as u would say this in sanskit..mithya...materialistic wants...

The Gome said...

hey xclusive, this guy ain't saby, if saby had $$$ he'd be livin it up @ Gome's Animal Farm. Keshi? no offence or anything, but i am undecided on what's cheesier, this post or the fact you chose to choose this post!? this is the equivelant of my amputee pictures! Contrary to what southpaw says, you're slippin hun :)

'the guy dat said money cant buy happiness
obviously didnt no where to shop'
-Bo Derek
a header for a blogg i visited
Yeah ! it was the sexy kitten

on a serious note
to die u have to let go
let go of possessions, friends , relatives and then only u will die peacefully, if u cant let go

death will be prolonged and painful

Sharukh Khan said someting of dis sort on his mom's parting

'she wanted to go, i was trying to hold her back, i was being selfish'

saby said...

i tink SEBIA is a snob,

How is this sad??

A person chooses between money and family...and if he/she chooses money over family and later regrets it..well thats his/her own fault.

Dewdrop said...

This reminds me of the old Mastercard ad. "Some things money can't buy, for everything else, there's Mastercard"

--pearl-- said...

its sad..bcoz he relized it soo late in his life..@rohit

kesh-it was sooo beautifully worded..love the "not for sale" bit

Keshi said...

hehe ty southpaw :)

fira u aint miserable, atleast I hope ur not...hope all is ok with ya...

icy very well-thought of...I believe an average family has more happiness and bliss in their home than people who chase dollars.

eyezz the wise babe...like u said mithya/maya means delusion and temporary happiness...we should know how not to be over-induldged in these mithyas...the reason for misery is desire as Buddhism relates...

Gome I didnt understand anything u stated...what are you talking about?

hehe u think so marg_rev?

ty misty huggz!

Sebz thanks, but sometimes I wanna post quizes to make it not so dull...to get away from serious stuff :) But hey ur the queen of writing, I love ur style!

Saby why r u talking abt death now? lol the post was abt selfish, rich, lonely and single men like u hehehe :)

Tally plz translate... :)

Pearly n NV...I agree with Pearly as well as NV :) Both of u r right. Like NV says the man chose what he wanted, yeah it's his fault but the point is he chose money over everything...that's sad and that's what Pearly is saying.

lol Dewdy good one!

Pari hugggz and :A: thanks!

Deips yeah :) I mean if I put my heart into it, I write alright...if not, I suck quite royally lol!

Thanks for dropping by KJ :)

Keshi.

Rex Venom said...

Sometimes people without money also miss out on life’s simpler and true pleasures. Sometimes those of us with love and happiness still honestly want wealth.
Basically, if you can be happy poor, you can be happier with cash. If you are sad while rich, you’d be even more miserable broke. Money doesn’t buy happiness, but neither does poverty.

Kerry said...

blog party alert: kadams734.blogspot.com
hell yeah!

Keshi said...

very true Rex..I agree. Poor people crave for money. And people who have love and affection like us sometimes wish we had more money too. And some rich people like the one I mentioned in thi s post is love-deprived despite the fact he has money. Grass is always greener on the other side. But there are some people who live with a good balance...they are rich enough in every way...

Keshi.

Please Help, Seb and Keshi friends, as I need opinions from my small group of web poets and writers on opinions on my third post down in my blog, entitled "Every fret of my guitar is marked with a bruise from my life with it. I hope some day I'll remember them all."
I am planning a ridiculously hilarious expansion into an incredibly self indulgent piece but need opinions like Ice cream needs chocolate chip

My dear Keshi,

I kid thee not.

Western Australia and NW Australia, and esp. Freemantle and Perth, are in imminent danger of a tsunami. The likely date for this to occur is 22nd June 2005, one day after the Summer Solstice. Else, every full moon night (and day) after that, would be HIGH RISK. Basically, avoid the beaches.

saby said...

Heyyyyy Pithaly,
dont go my dearing Kesh
if u want to live long !

there's plenty competition
dont get possessive

watch out for Gomey
he is a mad doctor

The Gome said...

kesh, i know u visited my site & saw pic, but no comment on mine or your blog, shit saby must be right, you are pissed @ me! or ur embarrased 2 c how highly i see u but u tink i am canadian dirt. u shud know (from bein in commonwealth, we all good) ur abstinence will only get u more gomey comments, more than the ones saby impersonates! when will he realize he can't masquerade as a maouse on ur blog! if u haven't been 2 me blog, just go and leave comment on pic i think is you then u won't hear from the gome, unless u read saby's trashy blog. oh yeah saby, by the way u've been sentenced 2 3 yrs lock up @ Gome's Animal Farm. if u think the animals rape ya hard, just wait till i get a good bottle of rye in me, hope you're not a bleeder! then again what do i care? i won't be da 1 bleedin! hee hee

saby said...

here's some more




After 45 years of marriage, an elderly Sindhi man in Bombay calls his son in New York and says, "I hate to ruin your day son, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are getting a divorce; 45 years of misery is enough!"

"Dad, what are you talking about?" the son screams.
"We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the old man says.
"We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Hong Kong and tell her!"

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone.
"Like heck they're getting divorced," she shouts, "I'll take care of this."
She calls Bombay immediately, and screams at the old man, "You are not getting divorced.

Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow.

Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR??" and she hangs up.
The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. "Okay", he says,
"It's all set. They're both coming for Diwali and paying their own airfare!!"

dis priest must have hit the bottle when he mailed dis joke
