My First Official “Solo” Trip to Sri Lanka – Day 1

train station in sri lanka

Sri Lanka, A Jewel shaped country in the Indian Ocean was an unexpected surprise. I loved every bit of it : The Green grassy landscapes, The not-so-delicious food, The crumbled overgrown ruins, The abundant wildlife and especially The  Welcoming locals who took hospitality to the next level. It was like that I time-traveled India 30-40 years before. Old Bus & Train tickets, 90s vehicles, Ranjit & Govinda style fashion was very Nostalgic.

Travelling through the country was easy, Just a little chaotic with over crowded buses moving along clogged roads and Trains packed to the grills with people hanging off the edges (which was actually adventurous). English was not widely spoken so it was little difficult to navigate but I learned few words to communicate like “Ayu Bowan” which means “Namaskaar” in Hindi and “Hello” in English.

Once I arrived at Bandar Naike Airport & Breezed through to Immigration, A Policeman caught me to check my bags. I was carrying “whey protein” in plastic bags which he thought was “Brown Sugar” but he tasted and found that it was actually Protein powder.

This is where my Adventure began..

Important Tip: Whenever you travel, keep your eyes on your bags and make sure nobody put something in your bags like in Bollywood movies & Read all the papers before signing any paper by Immigration or Security office to stay safe from any unexpected trouble.

Airport Exit gate was equipped with Taxi services desks, Costing around 3000-4000 LKR along with some Independent  Taxi drivers who were charging 1500-2000 LKR but my destination was “Kandy City” via Train, I took a public transport bus to Colombo Fort Railway Station. Just follow the steps below to get a bus :

The way out of the airport to the bus

The bus parked at Colombo Airport

It is very hard to miss this bus as it is parked with Taxis and has a Sign on top of its windshield that says “Colombo Fort”. You will also see a flow of passengers getting in with luggage.

At the time of writing bus tickets to and from the Colombo Airport to Colombo costed 120 rupees

It took 1.5 hrs to arrive to Colombo Fort and bus ticket cost me 200 LKR. Train from Colombo to Kandy was of 3-4 hrs Journey packed with people, I traveled in 2nd Class like “Passenger Trains” in India.

First Check point : Kandy
At the time of creating the Travel Itinerary to Sri Lanka, I’d read many articles about Kandy and decided to Start from this beautiful Old king city Kandy which was the Second biggest city in Sri Lanka.

Only thing I hated was “Who charges to visit a temple?” I had to pay 2500 LKR to enter into the temple.

“Kandyan Dance” was the next big thing which happened to me.. Although it felt like I’m in “Durga Puja” festival which cost me 5000 LKR.

After all this adventure, It was time for my second goal of Travel “Food”, Best Restaurant in Kandy was “Balaji Dosai” and all I have eaten was Dosa, Egg Hopper & Vegetable Kottu.

Why should You Blog?

Why should You Blog?

If you know me a bit, you know that I love blogging  And I believe everyone should blog.

Do you know why?

Because there are plenty of benefits to blogging. But still, a lot of you aren’t blogging. You’re missing out a lot.
Now, let’s start with the first benefit. Do you know the reason behind most people choosing to blog?
It’s the ability to earn a passive income. Yes.
Thanks to blogging, many are living a laptop lifestyle, enjoying the freedom.
They can work from anywhere, anytime without having to report to anyone.
But how can you earn from blogging?
#1: Running Ads
Most beginners start with this method.
You can run contextual ads through Adsense or other alternatives. And when people click on the ad, you get paid.
But the problem is,
You need to get tens of thousands of visitors a day to your blog in order to earn a decent income. And people don’t like ads.
#2: Earn via Affiliate Marketing:
This is the choice of the most bloggers.
You promote other products and get commissions when someone purchases the product through your link.
It’s called affiliate marketing.
It’s the main revenue channel for many bloggers.
And the best part is you can do this in any market or niche.
#3: Sell your products
This probably is the best option for you to live the real laptop lifestyle.
But, it requires a lot of effort from you.
You need to position yourself as an expert, build an audience, and create a product that your audiences will love to buy.
And when you’ve done all, you can sell those courses and keep earning as much as you want, like I’m doing right now.
But, all of this starts with one thing.
Blogging.
Hope this gives you a reason.
Happy Blogging

How to be a Casanova?

There is a fine line between being a player and being a Casanova. “Giacomo Casanova” was a historical figure of the XVI century, upon whose fame, fortune and misfortunes that the term came to be known as that of a great lover, which indeed he was. But being a Casanova -being like “The Casanova”- is much more than getting women to bed. It’s about developing a charm and charisma which will get you, like him, anywhere you may please.

Related image

It is of course no easy feat, but it will change your life forever, for the better or for the worse, if you have the courage.

Be a Casanova Step 1
Read “Histoire de ma vie” Casanova’s autobiography. He wrote the book for one reason alone: I am writing my life to laugh at myself, and I’m succeeding. His book Is over 4,000 pages of outrageously fun stories about a single man’s adventures conquering the world through his charm.

Be a Casanova Step 2
Listen. Actually listening to somebody is the single most important rule you’ll ever learn about people -especially women. Listen to what they have to say. All people have dreams, fears, hopes and thoughts. Listening to them will be the greatest gift you can give to anybody, great or small, wise or ignorant, and if you can do that for them, they’ll love you in return.

Be a Casanova Step 3
Have fun. The only reason to lead a life of adventure is to enjoy it. Power, money, pleasure and excitement will come all in due time but they will be just spices on the main dish. Even the charm and charisma which you’ll learn are mere accessories to the ultimate goal of enjoying your freedom to do what you love. Don’t be too serious about life. This will project you as more cool and confident person, which are qualities of a Casanova.

Be a Casanova Step 4
Love, laugh and live as hard as you can.

Be a Casanova Step 5
Don’t be afraid of swimming against the tide, but do not hate the people who frown upon your actions.

Be a Casanova Step 6
Gamble when you can’t afford to lose. This may seem like terrible advice, but you’ll never be as creative, as fast and as brave than when losing is not an option.

Be a Casanova Step 7
Seek that which you can’t have. Always have the die hard attitude to achieve goals in life which you have desired to have in life and develop abilities to achieve them.

Be a Casanova Step 8
When you lose it all you’ll learn that you didn’t need it in the first place.

Be a Casanova Step 9
Don’t be afraid. Nothing worth remembering has ever came from being afraid. If you get fired from your job, well, you probably didn’t like it anyway. If your girl leaves you, there still plenty of fish in the sea. If you get shot in the leg, well, you had it coming anyway.

Be a Casanova Step 10
Feel it rather than think about it. A thousand women may fall in love with your dreams, none will love you for your reason.

Be a Casanova Step 11
Don’t listen to people. Most of them have a way of telling you that the life of a Casanova is full of sin, moral perversion and deviousness. For the most part this is true. But the world needs dreamers too. They may never understand you, but they won’t have as much fun either. Trust yourself. Trusting your heart will take you to places that nothing else can. You will make mistakes, of course, but it is not about being right or wrong, it’s about living.

Be a Casanova Step 12
Try everything. At least once, mostly twice. This means forgetting prejudice, shutting your mouth and actually doing things. If you’ve always talked about buying a van and driving cross the continent there’s no reason to keep putting it off, vans are cheap, food is everywhere; go for it!

Be a Casanova Step 13
Get principles to start with. “Being a nice person” and “being honest” doesn’t quite cut it. Your principles should stand for something beyond that, something in the line of “Freedom, Beauty, Truth & Love” will do.

Be a Casanova Step 14
Stand by your principles. Being a free man doesn’t mean you can do anything you want, regard your own principles higher than the actual law, let them be your guide.

Be a Casanova Step 15
Stay thirsty. No matter what you achieve, how great your life seems to be, or how tired you become, there’s always a new adventure waiting around the corner for the man who is ready to undertake it.

Tips
Dance, for the fun of it.
Learn from the masters. They know their trade, players, politicians, salesmen, they all build castles in the sky. There’s a lot to learn from them.
Remember even the greats started at the bottom, the important thing is to keep moving.
‘Be a little bit better everyday. Whether it’s your smell, your looks, your moves, or your confidence, I leave it to up you.
Smile. Laugh. Be grateful for this opportunity, raise your glass to your fellow brothers and have a beautiful life.
Learn to talk, about abstract intangible things, dreams and hopes rather than facts and things, There are a gazillion articles about it out there.
Look good. Loving everyone means respecting everyone, yourself too, and that includes your body. Exercise, dress as nice as you can, indulge in shallow little things like haircuts and shoes. It will boost your confidence. But remember that it ‘s still an accessory.
Stop reading and start putting into practice what you are. Unless you are out there in the field you won’t know how is it like being the Casanova.
Stop over analyzing things, just go with the flow. Some people get too caught up in their thought process when any girl rejects them, instead move on and find a new one.
Experience in the best teacher. Learn from your mistake and move on.
Develop good communication skills. Most of the Casanovas are very good communicators; they know how to strike with the ladies with their words.
Have positive thoughts in the mind most of the times; we know it’s tough to keep positive thoughts in our minds all time specially when things get tough, but practice makes a man perfect.
Repetition is the mother of skills; keep trying. It’s a numbers game guys: the more you try, the more better you get at seducing the ladies, but guys, please don’t come as desperate or needy.
Warnings
Becoming a Casanova can bring life changing consequences.
Not everyone is cut for this life, so make sure it’s what you really want and that you’re not just momentarily bored.
You will be rejected by many ladies,specially those looking for a husband material, so don’t take rejection personally and move on.
Forget about stability and security. This is no life to have a nice corner office and three children.

  1. Know & understand yourself: Bad boys know & understand themselves. They know what they like & don’t like. They know what they want & don’t want. They aren’t afraid to go after or do whatever their heart desires or whatever is on their mind. (After doing what they want to do) they learn lessons, make mistakes, fail, succeed & ultimately get to know & understand themselves. The best way to get to know & understand yourself is to get out & Start doing what you are afraid of doing by overcoming your fears & live the life you want & learn as much as you can about yourself. 
  2. Strong Sense of self worth: Bad boys know that they are of HIGH VALUE & that’s how they behave. If you think you are of less value, your body language will automatically speaks the same about you.
    How do you value yourself more & start feeling that you’re good enough for women?
    Appearance:
    Workout, Eat right, Good Hygiene, Dress well, Good haircut etc.. Pay good attention to your physical appearance.
    Handle Emotions: Learn to have better control over your emotions, anxiety, shyness, nervousness etc around women.
    Work on your Goals: Women love boys who have goals & working towards their goals.
    Get a better Job: Be more efficient & excellent towards the work you do & try to get more payout.
    Have a Life: Do try your best to make yourself happy in every walks of your life emotionally, socially, occupationally & financially. Get rid of the person, situation or thing who is causing your happiness.Work on this regularly to value yourself more.

    “When you please others or impress others to get their acceptance or validation, You lose your self-worth in the process”

     

  3. Set your Standards & Preferences: Bad boys won’t settle for anything less then what they want. They have set standards & preference which needs to be met in any situation. It’s like a Boundary & you will not accept anything outside of this boundary. Your standards & preferences needs to be met in all the cases.
  4. Be Picky: If you already have set standards & preferences then being Picky will be an Icing on the cake. It will automatically increase your value. Be picky in everything be it clothes, foods, places, women etc.
  5. Be your MAN: Bad boys don’t care what other guys are thinking, saying & doing. They live their own life, do their own things & truly don’t care what other think or say. They hear from one ear & if it doesn’t what they want to hear, they let it go from another ear. Being your own man means:
    Thinking for own self
    Have own identity
    Not seeking validation of others
    Having own style
    Not affected by criticism, Judgments and opinions
    Being comfortable in own skin
    Be happy with who you areBeing your own man doesn’t mean you are idiotically unaware of anything outside of yourself & you know when it is taken too far.
  6. Be Independent of needing anyone & anything from outside to feel happy & worthy.
  7. Be Self-Reliant: Bad boys are self-reliant & self capable, and don’t really need anyone to help in life matters.
    If there is a problem, they will find a solution.
    If they want something, they will get it.
    If there is no one around to help, they don’t stay stuck, they find a way to get things done.
  8. Be somebody others will follow: Bad boys know where they want to go & why they want to go. Don’t work hard to fulfill other’s goals. Set your own goals & work towards them regardless of what others say. If you are becoming a follower, STOP right there and take your life in the direction you want.
  9. Dominance: “Dominate” yourself first. Everybody has a Childish brain inside which keeps telling us to do what is easy & not what is right. When you want to sleep early to reach your goals, childish brain dominates you & says “Naah, watch some videos & sleep after some time”
    When you want to workout, Your childish brain dominates & says “Ohoo.. abhi kal hi toh kiyaa thaa, Aaj nahi karte hai”
    When you don’t want to master bate, Your childish brain dominates you & says “Abe chal ek baar kar le, last time”

    Dominating yourself first means, Taking control of your childish brain.
    We actually don’t realize how much of our decision making process & behavior is “Hijacked” by our childish brain, until we take control back. Because if you are submissive to your childish brain, how will you dominate women’s & other’s?

  10. Be a “Go-Getter”: Bad boys fearlessly go after what they want instead of sitting & waiting for it to come to them. Be a Go-Getter, Life is very short.
    “Ek din ke intezaar me mat baitho, jis din tum apni list shuru kar doge, tumhaara wo ek din aa jayega”
    “If they want to talk to a women, They talk”
    “If they want her phone number, They ask & get it”
    “If they want to kiss, They kiss her”Bad boys don’t ask “If it’s ok” or “Can I” or “May I” questions, They take risks & go after what they want. Bad boys don’t sit & waste time waiting for things to come.
  11. Never need women or relationship for a better life: Bad boys never need women or relationships. You are not here to make relationships, Just have fun!
  12. March to the Drum of your own beats: Bad boys don’t like being told what to do & what not to do. Bad boys don’t care being recognized, rewarded or praised – They do what they want & they will praise & reward themselves & never seek anyone’s validation.
  13. Make your own Rules: Bad boys never follow societal rules & bend rules accordingly which doesn’t hurt anyone if they break it. Bad boys make their own rules:
    Accept full responsibility of your life, actions & results.
    Never pussy-out on talking to women you’re interested in.
    Don’t
    Don’t disrespect yourself.
    Don’t be dishonest from yourself.
    Never accept less than the best.
    Don’t accept disrespect, lies or mistreatment.
    Don’t let anyone talk to you like you are child or idiot.
    Don’t miss behave anyone
    Don’t talk shit about anyone on their back, Do it on their face.
    Don’t sacrifice your own principles to get anything done. 
  14. Be Adventurer: Don’t be a couch potato, bad boys think there is no life without fun, thrill & adventure. Go for skydiving, hiking, paint ball, surfing etc
  15. Be Selfish: Bad boys are Selfish, they give a lot to themselves before others. They will do their things first, satisfy their needs first. “Ek baar baby.. selfish hoke.. apne liye jiyo naa” 
  16. Emotionally Tough: Bad boys are emotionally tough & strong, They don’t cry or whine over little things like girls. If its within their control, they deal with it & If its not within their control, they know that crying over it not going to help. They laugh over every rejection. 
  17. Hard to Impress: Bad boys don’t get impressed too quickly & easily in every situation. If you’re easy to impress, you’re easy to fool. Stop being easily impressed with women’s beauty, appearance, clothes etc.
  18. Be Mysterious: As soon as women completely figured you out, she will leave you! Being mysterious keeps her interested, attracted & thinking about you. Bad boys don’t talk much about themselves. If you have a bad habit of telling everything, ZIP IT seriously. You don’t have to answer all the question. So instead of talking about yourself, Talk about hilarious movies, YouTube videos, Travel stories, College stories etc
  19. Opinions are like Assholes: Bad boys keep their opinions with themselves, they don’t share it with the world what’s on their mind unless they are asked for it. Become that man
  20. Don’t keep showing your “GOOD SIDE”: Bad boys stay natural, they don’t constantly advertise their good side to women & others. Stay neutral & cool.
  21. Don’t take Shit from Anyone: Bad boys don’t let anyone treat them bad, make joke of them & be abusive of them. Bad boys have defined standards on how they treat themselves & expect others to the same standard. Don’t let anyone do that without letting them know that you’re not OK with the way they are talking to you & treating you. When other’s see they cant treat the way others treat you, they will instantly feel more attraction for you & treat you with same respect.
  22. Don’t care about other’s opinions: Bad boys don’t care what others think of them. Always remember 25% rule by David Deangelo 

    when someone doesn’t like you for some reason or has an opinion you don’t agree with, Just remember 25% rule & don’t let it ruin your day.

  23. Don’t compare yourself with other men: Bad boys don’t compare themselves with others because they know what they are & how different they are. When they meet a women, they know that she has never met anyone like them and if things go right, they are going to take her phone number & take her home. They have deep inner confidence.
  24. Have a Chill-out: Bad boys don’t take life serious but take it enough seriously. They don’t cry over the situation which is not under their control. Be Calm & Composed & try to find solution to make it better rather than freaking about it.

Part 2 – Treat Yourself Right

  1. Positive self image: Bad boys always have a Positive self image about themselves. Women will know if you have a positive or negative self image of yourself & how they should treat you. They always have a “Can Do” attitude towards themselves. If you want women to see you in a positive light, start seeing yourself in a more positive light.
  2. Be aware of your Appearance: Bad boys don’t just wakeup & leave the house. They take good care of their appearance. They look in the mirror, brush, Comb, put cologne & dress well.
  3. Be in Shape: Bad boys works hard to stay in shape by improving eating habits & working out core muscles like shoulders, chest, abs, biceps, triceps, legs & calves.
  4. Fix “Personal Problems” ASAP: Address personal problems before it becomes too hard to fix. Like Appearance, Health, Shape, Finance etc.
    “A 3 inch snowball becomes a 30 feet massive boulder if it keeps rolling downhill & collecting snow” So fix it ASAP.
  5. Fix tough situations: Bad boys start taking action & handle bad situations head-on before it becomes too big to handle.
  6. Self-Respect: Bad boys respect themselves a lot means they are more likely to get the respect they want. Not respecting themselves means not likely to get the respect you want. Men who truly respect themselves are in higher demand & becoming rare, and harder for women to find. When you respect yourself, you don’t allow others to disrespect you, treat you bad or unfair, talk to you that belittle you and you carry yourself with class.
  7. Change only for YOU: Bad boys change only for themselves. Changing to make somebody happy isn’t in their DNA. If they do make changes, It’s what they want & not what others. 
  8. Your needs come first: Bad boys put their needs first & above all without having to care about their approval & seeking validation. In some cases, put their needs first but in all cases PUT YOUR NEEDS & YOURSELF FIRST.
  9. Your Happiness comes first: Its logical that if you put her happiness first, she will be happy but women don’t work logically. They get annoyed when boys put their needs & happiness first & consider them desperate & weak because they will never stop testing you, So always in all cases keep your needs & happiness first no matter what. 
  10. Be a Winner: Bad boys always put their best to be the Winner. Second places are for the first Loser. Have competitive spirit, It is very attractive to women.
    “You were a born winner but to win, You must plan to win, prepare to win, & expect to win” 
  11. Stand up for yourself: Bad boys stand up for themselves & don’t let anyone including women mistreat, bully, tease & harass them. Nice guys on the other hand take it to keep her but bad boys stand up & not let anyone do it. If she keeps it up, she’s gone. Simple as that.
  12. I’m Important: Bad boys carry a simple mindset that says, “I’m Important” and others will treat them the same. Walk into a place like you own it & people will treat you the same way. Don’t walk around literally saying “I own it”, have a body language, composure, facial expression & carry yourself that communicates you own it.
  13. NO dead weight: If someone is keeping you down, making your life worse & constantly taking from you instead of giving, they are dead weight and as a Bad boy, you should take them off from your shoulders to move faster & freely towards your goals.
  14. Don’t get used: Bad boys don’t get used, if you find out that you’re being used show her the door.
  15. NO self doubt: Bad boys never doubt themselves & their ability. If you believe you cant make it, you won’t. If you believe you can’t do it, You won’t. bad boys always have “I can do it” attitude. Everything bad boys do is backed by a belief system “I can & will do it”. If you doubt you can attract a women, you won’t. if you doubt you won’t get better with women & dating, you won’t. you brain is unbelievably powerful and your thoughts shape your life. Never underestimate the power of believing in yourself. Never underestimate your ability to get what you want in life. Self doubt will sabotage you & keep you from succeeding every single time.
  16. Unphased by failure: Bad boys know that not doubting themselves doesn’t mean they will never fail, there will be chances that might not get the success they want but they will be able to get back up faster than anyone else could. But taking this first step without doubting & with full confidence is what you have to do.. there could be many reasons that the process didn’t complete, You have not fail.. You succeeded in taking the step but it’s some external reason why the process couldn’t succeed. “failure” is a man made thing & its not real. There is no such thing called failure. When bad boys approach a girl & if she is not interested, its not a failure, she was just not interested (external reason), find a different approach. Erase the word called – FAILURE. Every time you could not complete the process & failed.. you have not failed, you have learned a lesson & not failed.
  17. Don’t fear: Bad boys don’t fear while many of nice guys live their whole life full of fear & think “kaash mai bhi agar apne fear ko kam kar paata toh mai vo life jeeta jo mai jeena chahta hu” don’t be that nice guy, women knows when you are uncomfortable around them, so be fearless & approach as many as you can, it will overcome you fear. If you fear of women rejecting you & making a joke of you in front of all the people, THAT’S not gonna happen As long as it is a friendly approach. Take that risk of rejection, Its very arousing to women. Bad boys are not afraid of talking to her, taking her phone number, ask her out, touch her, kiss her.. the fear doesn’t exists. Experience teaches us that approaching a women is never going to hurt. Whatever you have to do to get over your fear of women do it.. approaching 10 women &  getting rejected 10 times, do it!! Eventually, once you have enough experience, you will notice this fear is gone & what left is confidence & self belief.

    Differentiate between Real  & Unreal fear as per “Sandeep maheshwari”

The Science behind Love: Love Technology

Love may be the most compelling mystery of the mind science will ever tackle.
artistic, blossom, bright

“How on earth are you ever going to explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first” – Albert Einstein

Einstein was correct.. Science can never explain the wonderment of love clinically but I think he would also agree that its a mistake to confuse increased understanding with less meaning.

No matter what we learn about love, It will continue to be one of the most meaningful & powerful forces on the planet and will remain “Unknown”

I want to share something I have learned so far about “LOVE” (being in love) after reading so many articles, books and dealing with many of my friends..

  • Love is addictive
    addiction, aid, bottle

Indeed.. (biologically) what i have learned in my school is when we continuously think about something (about someone beloved), we induce an activity into brain which releases a flood. The so called “pleasure chemical” & this gives the lover a high effect of narcotics which is never the less most addictive !!

at the same time the brain (in love) experience an increase in “Stress” hormone.. which increases the heart rate & we tend to use medicines fr several “Indirect” reasons which we don’t realize like sleeping pills, headache relief, Alcohol & smoke (most commonly used)

  • Love is obsessive
    Image result for obsession

The brain love experiences a drop in Neutro-transmitter cell in our body which provides a sense of being in control. It guards against the anxiety of uncertainty & instability and when it drops, our sense of control decreases and we attached obsessively on things that cause our certainty and since love is by definition “Unpredictable” It is a prime target for obsession. The term “crazy in love” isn’t far off the truth.

  • Love is liable to “Recklessness” (fearless)
    Brown Wooden Mallet Near Brown Chicken Egg

When we loose the sense of being in control, Our brain’s reasoning, command & control center drops low and at the same time brain’s response system also goes down. The combination of these effects is a willingness to take more risks.

  • “Love” & “Lust” can co exist in the brain (and not necessarily for the same person)
    affair, bedroom, couple

Love & Lust appear to be the separate but our brain generates almost the same kind of responses. They both produce a “high”, They are both “addictive”and They effect many of the same parts of brain but they can easily be identified whether you are in love or just lust.

  • “Men” in love are extremely visualize..
    Painting Wallpaper

The brains of men in love shows greater activity in the visual cortex then of women in love that’s why men are more “visually” and more “creatively” romantic.

  • Woman in love remember the details.
    bear, child, childhood

The brain of women in love shows greater activity in the other part of brain which is associated with memory. Woman can always “forgive” but can never “forget”

  • Eye contact is a lover’s magic
    Person Wearing Eyeglasses

New born babies and lover’s have this in common, More then anything, Eye contact is the fastest means to build emotional connection and when combines with “Smile” it creates wonders. Only “Vocal Interaction” comes anywhere close to eye contact but still few seconds behind eye contact.

  • Women & men can be just friends (at least women think they do)
    baby, children, cute

Men really don’t get the phenomenon of “friendship” when it comes to be with a girl and they are far more likely to want more then just friendship.  Women are always been a good manager & they are able to separate the friendship & love in there minds.

At the end.. I Just want to say that “Love” is so beautiful, So wonderful, A tender look which becomes habit.
