All problems are with you only, not with the fate or God.  You only are careless.

Why Krishna gives failure? He does not give willingly.

You say that your instruments broke in your practical exam.  Why?  Did Krishna come and pull it down?  No.  You handled it carelessly.  So, it fell down.  Why do you blame Krishna?


You say that when you tried to take print out of your project work, the printer failed to work.  What to do?  It must have gone under repair.  Isn’t there any other way? Take a copy of the file of that project and take to a DTP centre and take Print out.  Just Rs.100-200 may be needed for that.  Problem over.

So, all you have mentioned are careless mistakes.  Very silly mistakes.  Please don’t drag God, particularly Krishna for these silly reasons.  Krishna is waiting to give you ETERNAL  & BLISSFUL LIFE ITSELF IN GOLOKA.  But, you are asking silly things to Him.

Krishna, today the question paper should be easy.

Krishna, today, the school bus should come in time.

Krishna, today the tip of my pencil should not break while drawing diagrams.

Krishna, today I  have not brought umbrella; So, the rain should not come.

Krishna, today, the food should be good in the college canteen.

Krishna will be smiling hearing your prayers.  So, Have big desires.  These small problems are due to your own carelessness.

If you like to catch the bus, start from home early and go to bus stand atleast 15 minutes before the time of the bus.

If you like to avoid  slipping of your feet , put every foot carefully and firmly.

If you like to avoid accidents, walk on the pedestrian path only and drive following traffic rules.

If you like to avoid forgetting the lessons in the exam hall, start preparing in the first month of the academic year also and revise more.

If you don’t like to meet a police, lead a dignified and controlled life.

If you like to avoid morning tension, wake up one hour early and so, you will get one hour more to work.

Thus, you can avoid all the problems if you carefully live in this world.  We only are the cause for most of our problems.

Krishna gives failure to make you right.

So, be careful hereafter.   All the best.
