Words make or break... Let's make sure, it always make....

Words have power. They can tear a person down, or build someone back up -- as we found on the road in Columbia, Maryland.
Don't let the light fool you. Inside this home -- and too many others like it in America - it can get pretty dark.
"There are a lot of kids out there that suffer depression and anxiety," said seventh-grader Noah Brocklebank.
And not many are willing to talk about it on national television.
"Not many are willing to talk about it, period," said Noah.
Noah is okay with people calling him depressed -- mainly because, over the past couple years, he's been called worse.
"Like 'fat,' 'ugly,' 'annoying,' 'loser,'" he recalled. "The saying 'Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me' -- I really don't think that applies."
Noah's mother Karen says the bullying, combined with his underlying depression, ultimately led to the night of January 26.
"It's so scary," said Karen Brocklebank. "You just want to save him."
That night, her son posted a clear warning on the Internet -- a picture of his arm all cut up and a note that read: "Day of scheduled suicide, February 8th, 2013, my birthday." It was to be his 13th birthday.
"I just felt like everything was worthless," said Noah. "My life was terrible. I had no one."
After that, Noah ended up in the hospital for eight days. And while he was in there, as his doctors assessed his mental health, his mother came up with a plan to improve his vision --- a plan for Noah to see more clearly how much he matters, how much he's loved, and that there really is life beyond seventh grade.
So she asked some friends on Facebook to put all that in a letter. She was hoping for at least a couple responses.
"But we got more than a couple," said Noah.
What happened next is a remarkable testament to both the power of social media and the kindness of strangers.
"I know it is hard to believe right now, but life gets better. I promise," Noah read from one letter.
Noah has received thousands of letters from every continent on the planet, including Antarctica. The sheer volume alone has brightened up his home a million watts.
"I has restored my faith in humanity. It really has," said Karen Brocklebank.
As for how this changed him, Noah said: "I was focused on the bad side of the people, like the bullies. Then I realized there are caring people out there that can be my friends."
Noah still has his good days and his bad. But now, whenever he does have one of those down days, he's got a pile of friends to turn to.
"Yeah, I'm not going to be done reading my letters 'til I'm like your age," he told me.
Looks like he's in for a long, long life.

Dear Ilango Sir,
i am a mute student of your wonderful blog , as this is my learning phase i seldom post. but, today i am unable to discipline myself.
The almighty might have certainly liberated the departed soul of our little Angel due to your proximity and blessings.
all the words like courage,peace, strength,etc seems dwarf, while to be addressed to you, because you yourself is such a great lighthouse for scores of souls.first time in my life a have sensed a person in STHITPRAGYA condition.i feel myself blessed to be in touch of such a Legend.
O!Great soul Ilango Keep us enthraling,keep us amazing. i am stubborn...Love You, Thank You

i received following viewpoint on nifty via email-

monday is going to be a day where one can almost double their capital.buy 5500 pe around 55-60.target 100.
reason.
1]fiis are selling relentlessly selling in nifty futures.selling in cash.buying out of money puts.
2]yesterday fiis sold nifty fut qty 6lacs.at 5594 nifty futures.
3]nifty 5500 puts bought around 10lacs qty.in last 10 minutes.
nifty fut may open around 5540-50 levels and likely to fall to 5450 levels intraday.

experts may give their opinion on this and oblige.

businessline on nifty

Nifty (5,553.2)

The Nifty hit the high of 5,754 before reversing lower last week. As explained earlier, the downward targets of the current move from 6,112 peak are 5,693, 5,522 and 5,350. If we break down the wave count further, we arrive at the targets of 5,527, 5,388 and 5,162.

Note the recurrence of 5,520 levels in both the counts. The index almost reached this level on Friday. We therefore need to exercise a little bit of caution with short positions.

But if Monday opens on a weak note, it will mean that the index is headed for 5,450 that is the 50 per cent retracement of the move from 4,770 low. Since the target of the minor count occurs at 5,388, investors need to watch their backs in the zone between 5,400 and 5,450 next.

Short term resistances would be at 5,670 and 5,754. Short positions need to be closed on move above 5,670. Medium-term trend will turn positive only on close above 5,750.
