    " A friend indeed is a friend in need "


    Hello everyone :

    I know that I have a big mouth,but it has been about 2 or 3 weeks that I was silent and not very active on SDN .I was very distracted,desperate.......and down .I wanted to write about this incident when it happend at that time,I just could not.I did not have the energy to do so...........though I wanted to tell all the SDN about it so bad.

    What I am gonna tell you here guys is not a joke,exaggeration, nor a movie fiction out of my immagination .It happened & I never believed somthing like this may happen in real life .I never believed that ANGELS may come down to earth sometimes............,I never thought that they were surrounding me during my ordeal..............I was simply blinded by my dilemma .



    Here is the story ;

    10 days ago,at the peak of my rush to come up with the 70K & while I was dieing to find the remaining 12K left,a dear Indian SDN friend who was following my thread (I need help please) offered me her help.She asked her husband to read my thread in order to acknoledge him about the whole situation.

    Believe it or not.....!!!!!!, this Jentelman called me at 2:30 AM to offer me a 12K check to complete the 70K . I thanked him with all the appriciation in the world that I could say at that moment ,cause I was more than astonished .I did not really know how to thank both of them for this kind gesture.Although that he insisted on me to accept his offer, I gratefully thanked him & did not take the money.

    Why.....???? , cause I did not know when I am gonna give it back .I wanna keep the 70K in my cousin's account as long as I can , without any rush to draw them back the next day I get the bank statment .I told my parents about this offer.............they simply could not believe it .


    Why am I telling you about Mr&Mrs( Y & X ) ?? .

    I have never seen or met these two angels ,I do not even know how do they look like.I just know that they are my Indian friends from SDN . Do you know what does it mean to me when someone frome DIFFERENT ethnicity ,colour,or race offer me his hand when I was a drown looking for a straw to hang with??.

    Guys ,when I first discovered SDN, I hesitated alot to start writing on it .I felt that I was gonna be like an ALIEN trying to intrude in an Indian ghetto,or like a puppy lost in a huge jungle .I was afraid of being rejected or not being welcomed.How do I feel now?? I proudly feel that I am a part of this Indian Family .


    Dear Mr&Mrs ( Y & X ) :

    You can't immagine how much gratitude and gratefullness I hold for you & I am more toutched than you can immagine .Words can not describe my feelings tward you . I just hope that someday, I can pay you back a small portion of your human touch .May GOD bless you wherever you are....................

    Dear Sam,
    Can truly understand what you must have felt.......
    "........ With all its sham & drudgery , it is still a beautiful world my friend".......have you read the poem" DESIDERATA" BY Max Ehrman.......is truly applicable to any situation in life.Sam, your true gratitude to this wonderful couple would be to step into their shoes when somebody in the future has stepped into yours...that is the circle of life my friend.God bless the couple,& Good luck to you in your future endeavours.....God sends his angels at times when you least expect, b'coz to him you still & always will be his precious, precious child.When you turn back & look at life sometime in your old age, you would realise what you understood as small moments are some of life's greatest moments.Take care.

    Hey Guys
    I just thought i will share this beautiful message with all of u. This made me feel more protected and safe.
    Have Fun


    Foot Prints

    One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene,he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; one belonged to him, and the other to the Lord.
    When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of foot - prints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.

    This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it. "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me."

    The Lord replied, "My precious, precious child, I love you and would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

    hi

    sam your story was really unbelivable .its hard to believe such people exists in today's world .i really have alot of respect for that couple hats off to them man.

    i am one of those who justtake info from sdn coz i dont have any info more than the members in sdn already know to share and with my low scores i geta complex when i go thru the threads n frankly speaking most of the times depressed too. :(
    so even i have to wait for some miracle to happen or some angle to guide me thru this whole admission process .
    anyways i 'll still try my best n leave the rest to god.

    was geniunely touched by this couple story.

    Hi Sam,
    In life when you go through rough times,you usually get help from the most unexpected places, its like this circle of kindness. Someone touches your heart and you will go on and do the same. This circle makes life the beautiful thing it is.
    We have our very own angel network on SDN :D ...and I hope it continues growing.
    Your angels have made me belive in miracles :) bless them !!

    best of luck in penn Sam!!. Shine like you've never shined before.

    Cheers
    Mrinalini

    P.S. my baby chunky monkey is developing her motor skills!!:p

    Hello Boggu :

    To tell you the truth,I can't describe to you how I felt when this Jentelman offered me the money. I was:wow: .I told him ; OH MY GOD ,I am not one of your relatives,I am not one of your neighbors.How can you trust me without even Knowing me ???

    Honestly, this is the major reson why I started this whole thread .My little angle is going to take Part-1 , she is a littlebit down & very tensed .She just needs some encouragment to boost up her spirit.

    I know that she is reading everything you guys write here.I just want her to know how much she gets blessed when people read this thread .

    Mystiq :

    You just hit my nerves ...!!!!!! You are draging me to disclose everything .I already PMed this message to some of SDN members on my buddylist ,who sent me congratulations when I first got my acceptance 7 weeks ago .

    Here it is :

    After my interview day at UPENN was over at 4:00pm .I got out the school and took a walk . After I crossed the 1st block, I stopped ............., looked back at the school , lightend a cigarett , took the deeee........pest puff I ever taken in my life and with all the sorrowes of the world in my heart I addressed GOD & told him :

    GOD........

    It has been years that am fighting.....

    6 Canadian schools turned me down.....

    No one employed me........

    All the doors are closed in my face......

    Didn't the time come yet...?????

    Aren't you gonna give just one chance...???


    I NEVER NEW THAT HE WAS LISTINING TO ME THIS TIME .........

    Hi Sam,
    Felt so good to read this thread.....its amazing how beneath all the struggle in life there is this subtle but stong human thread which brings out the core in us...it is only human to reach out when you see troubled souls & it is only more human to rejoice together in happiness.
    Sam, when you took that DEEPEST puff...it is when God was listening buddy,coz he has bigger dreams for you & me than we have for ourselves.He speaks in that oh so lil voice of calm.....we in our hurry never stop to listen, that is the reason why most often we miss on what he is saying.If he has taken so much time designing the lil butterfly's wings in its varied hues & colours, imagine how much time he would take caring for you & me...so friend trust in him & march ahead....it is a beautiful world out there & May his light shine on you forever.

    Thank you so much :D ,You are so sweet . when You come to the states, you can spoil me more with a nice "Beryane meal + Spicy sauce " .

    I tried it 22 years ago when I visited India ,unfortunatly resturants here do not offer that tasty quality .I am one of those described in this Quote :

    hi sam

    i just read this thread now and i am simply amazed! ur SDN angels are simply the best! and you are really fortunate to have these people in ur life. miracles do happen and they happen to nice people like u! :)

    a poem i found on the net which i dedicate to all my friends here on SDN:

    I haven't ever seen you
    But I know you're really there
    I click you into reality
    Like magic from the air.
    Your voice is like an angel
    Though I really do not hear;
    Your hug as warm as any
    Of loved ones I hold dear
    You're always there for comfort
    Or a word of cheer
    Though you are very far away
    I always have you near
    You're a very special friend
    Like none I've ever known
    As long as you're in cyberspace
    I'll never be alone.
