Wats in a NAME??

At a training session today...we were asked to jot down in points what all should we consider while buying a house for yourself.
These points had to be further divided into "Must haves" and "Negotiable"
something like...
Budget(for the house) is a "must have"...and something like School nearby the house is "negotiable".

We all had it done discussing in groups...and everyone had almost got in all the must haves and negotiable points.
Mr.Joseph Raj asked if there was anything else u want to add to this list...and then after a moment of silence came a voice from somewhere...

"Sir,I think i would also consider if the building in which im buying a house is Earthquake resistant."

We all looked at him and burst out laughing!!
What the hell was this guy saying...earthquake resistant...how does that matter???

And then came what was one lesson we all had to learn...Mr.Joseph stopped us...
"Its a very good point...If you happen to be living in some place like Surat...this will play a very imp role..."
"Just because you are restricted to your surroundings...dont you ever curb anyone else's thoughts...You could be the biggest loser if you do so..."

The guy continued...
"People...I have done Civil Engineering...If you dont know...let me tell you...this is a very imp criteria...for any house you buy...esp business hubs...and also...that a building can only be earthquake RESISTANT...never can it be earthquake PROOF...If someone says its earthquake proof...they are just taking you for a ride..."

I looked at him and realised...
Yes...Its better to accept sometimes that the person in front of you might know something better...something useful...that you could never imagine...

Mr.Joseph concluded his session today by saying...

"Remember always...Youth is POWER...No matter what you do...wherever you are...you will always remember the time of your life between 20-30 yrs...
So utilize it well...Go ahead with your dreams...The time and opportunity might never come back...!!"


Now thats something to think about....
WHERE DOES YOUR NAME GO FROM HERE...WHO WILL REMEMBER YOU TEN YEARS FROM NOW??
