Today I played a kid, 17 year old (Meghna) and she is good. She hits the ball very well both forehands and backhands. At times gets the ball to kick up and has some tremendous passing shots. However, I was happy just playing her as I was able to match her strokes and at times pass her too and win points. She was serving fast and I was able to return the serves back well too.

I would like to play her in a match and I wont wonder if she beats me, but it would be fun and very competitive playing her.

Bricks

I was standing on my porch and when I noticed some masons working on a house. I saw them picking up bricks and putting them together and in a little while there was a wall; a little while later there was a structure of what later may be a beautiful room in the house.

Thinking of life in the same way; we are born and a foundation is laid. Then it is our parents who try to provide the best foundation during our childhood. Then we grow up and find life throwing bricks at us every day. It is then us only who can pick those up and build a great building or leave them scattered.

Just like we put together bricks to build a house that provides us shelter in stormy weathers, we should use the bricks of life to build a house of experience to help us in difficult times.
