The most precious thing to give your child is...TIME!

Once a father was working and his son came and asked, “Dad, may I ask you a question? Father said, “Yeah sure” So his son asked, “Dad, how much do you make an hour?” Father got a bit furious and said, “Why do you ask such a thing?” Son said, “Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?” So, father told him that “I make Rs. 500 per hour.”
“Oh”, the little boy replied, with his head down. Looking up, he said, “Dad, may I please borrow Rs. 300?” The father furiously said, “if the only reason you asked about my pay is so that you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or other nonsense, then march yourself to your room and go to bed. Think why you are being so selfish. I work hard every day and do not like this childish behavior.”
The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door. The man sat down and started to get even angrier about the little boy’s questions. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money? After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down, and started to think, “May be there was something he really needed to buy with that Rs. 300 and he really didn’t ask for money very often!” The man went to the door of little boy’s room and opened the door. “Are you a sleep, son?” He asked. “No daddy, I’m awake,” replied the boy. “I’ve been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier”, said the man. “It’s been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you, Here’s the Rs.300 you asked for”.
The little boy sat straight up, smiling “oh thank you dad!” He yelled. Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled some crippled up notes. The man, seeing that the boy already had money, started to get angry again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, then looked up at his father.
“Why do you want money if you already had some?” the father grumbled. “Because I didn’t have enough, but now I do,” the little boy replied. “Daddy I have Rs. 500 now. Can I buy an hour of your time? Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you”.
It’s just a short reminder to all the parents working so hard in life! We should not let time slip through our fingers without having spent some time with those who really matter to us. If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of days. But the family & friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives. And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more into work than to our family.

Android lollipop is now seeding to Moto G (1st Generation) in India

 Android 5.0 Lollipop is Google's biggest mobile update in years.

There's something magical about the idea that, in the space of a few minutes, your smartphone or tablet can look dramatically different and do some cool new things, to boot. That's why operating system updates can be oddly exciting, and Android's latest upgrade, version 5.0 or Lollipop is the firmware equivalent of opening presents on your birthday. The upcoming release, which is now available for selected Motorola devices heading to dozens of mobile devices in the coming months, brings a fresh design and no shortage of new features.

If you've been using Android over the past few months, you may have noticed that several Google apps have been updated with a fresh design and they all look the same. This is no coincidence: Google's putting its three-year-old "Hollow" design language out to move toward a look known as "Material Design." This new aesthetic is featured distinctly in Android 5.0 Lollipop.
This consistency between apps and OS is a good thing, especially since Material Design is cleaner and more colorful than Hollow. Google says this kind of cohesiveness appeals visual harmony, and yu have to agree, whether you're using Google apps and services or a third-party option, a universal design language can ease your frustration of not knowing where functions really are. Since most apps look similar to each other and the rest of Lollipop, it should be less difficult for people to understand what to look for and how to find what they need.

And now, the new Android build arrives on Moto G devices in India, and a tad over two weeks after the initial soak test. The software version of the Android 5.0 update is 220.21.16.en.03. Android 5.0 Lollipop brings a host of improvements to the budget friendly smartphone, headed by fresh material design for the UI, as well as brand new ART runtime. The latter will almost certainly make last year’s Moto G feel a lot snappier.
