Find out if someone is INVISIBLE on gmail or is really offline

You can easily find out if someone is invisible on gmail or is really offline, its very simple. Just send him/her an offline chat message.

1st Scenario - If you just get a message saying,
"maddymishra is offline. Messages you send will be delivered when maddymishra comes online."
or just
"maddymishra is offline"
that means maddymishra is invisible and not really offline.

2nd Scenario - If you get a message in Red-coloured-Bold-font saying,
"maddymishra is offline and can't receive messages right now."
"maddymishra did not receive your chat."
This means maddymishra is really offline.

So thats it. None can cheat you ever again by going Invisible on gmail.

P.S. - maddymishra is just a sample gmail id, I used for example. Additionally I am aware of it for quite a long time now, so I know exactly who was playing games ...

sometimes I want to kill myself ...

I was once going through Shekhar Kapoor's blogs. He wrote ...

I dream of death
I imagine my own funeral
I realize ...

It's the ultimate act of my EGO
it's the ultimate act of my individuality
It's the ultimate statement of the self

oh my god !
and I thought I was killing myself
and it had nothing to do with others
and yet,

as I put the gun in my mouth
my head was screaming,
notice me ! notice me !
recognize my individuality
recognize that i do exist

how far will the mind go
to play games with me ?
is this a game of russian roulette
between me and my mind ?

is the mind so desperate
that it will kill the body
before it will give up it's own self ?

And then there was a comment from someone named Ruth ...
"I once was speaking with a friend who was going through a very confusing and difficult time and he said, "maybe I will just kill myself", and I said, "you do not want to kill yourself you just want to kill the confusing and difficult time you are having. Putting the ego in it's rightful place is no easy task.....Down boy!"

And I was convinced. Many a times, these type of thoughts enter our mind but we interpret it a little wrong. We want to kill ourselves just because we can't bear the conditions any more. But actually we want to kill the 'Confusing and Difficult times'

Be good and do good ...

People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.
— Mother Teresa

The quote has been taken from Mother Teresa quotes. There are so many which applies a calming effect when we go through them.
