Street hawkers Warming-up at 6am

Lovely Christmas morning here at Pune! Took a few pictures to capture the scenes around where I live (Pune) on a lovely Christmas morning. I was on my way for my Yoga class 🙂

On my way back at 7 am I could see some senior citizens at a morning laughter club – they never miss their early morning execises.

Great spirits on a lovely Christmas morning!

    The Significance of Christmas is known all over the world. Though it is true that Christmas is celebrated as the day of the Birth of Christ into this world, yet it also symbolizes a very deeply significant truth of the spiritual life.

    I was wondering what is Christmas all about then I came across a quote by ,Janice Maeditere “Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts”

    I started looking Christmas from an HR point of view; I would consider Jesus Christ as a perfect OD consultant. Jesus Christ was born at a time when ignorance, superstition, greed and hatred prevailed upon the land. He worked a transformation in the lives of people. He gave a new and a spiritual turn to the lives of man. There came a change upon the land. People started upon a new way of life. Thus a new era begins for the world.

    May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace,
    The gladness of New Year give you hope,
    Merry Christmas and A very Happy New year.

    Best wishes for all of you…
