Sakshi Times www.sakshitimes.com is the official website of Sakshi: An Apologetics Network in India. Sakshi conducts open forums, issue based seminars and region specific trainings in apologetics. A witness in a court of law takes an oath to “speak the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.” It is an incredible claim especially given the universal human fondness for half-truths and untruths. And yet it is a positive admission that in a culture of suspicion and deceit, the truth may still be known. What is Sakshitimes? Sakshitimes.com (“Sakshi” means “a witness” in many Indian languages) is a website which serves as a platform for those committed to exploring and testifying to the truth encountered in various arenas of life. We think that all truth ultimately leads us to God - The Infinite and Loving Creator and Sustainer of the universe.
At Sakshitimes.com we hold that this truth is revealed to us uniquely in the person of the one human being who claimed to be The Truth - Jesus Christ. We hold that some views are true and some views are false. With those who have views that conflict with ours, we are willing to hear and learn. We are willing to discuss, dialogue and debate with anyone who will be open to a free and fair interaction. There is much that we don’t know. We believe however, that what we do know is sufficient to enable human beings to find the meaning and purpose for our lives.
Through this website, we at Sakshitimes.com are committed to making truth known. This website contains articles by the “friends of Sakshitimes” from different parts of the world. Towards that end, we conduct dialogues, debates, discussions, open forums and other forms of interaction. Through these avenues we hope to facilitate the development of individuals and communities across the world so that they may be bold witnesses of and to the truth. We also recognize our limitations and the possibility that we might err. If anyone finds anything that is not truthful in our content or conduct, please feel free to let us know.

Way of an eagle in the sky (big picture), the way of a snake on a rock (eye for details), the way of a ship on the high seas (float and not sink; treat upon all obstacles), and the way of a man with a maiden (be passionate on your job)
Let your Vision lead you and do not be aimless, Peter Christopher Raj of Franklin Templeton Investments Ltd., comments on Proverbs30. Read Proverbs 30 here.
Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. Do not slander a servant to his master, or he will curse you, and you will pay for it. Bless everyone, and not curse; do not be pure in own eyes; never be proud, hurting others with words, and contempt look. Be satisfied with whatever the Lord has provided with you.
Too amazing things (be an amazing professional before your boss and colleagues): way of an eagle in the sky (big picture), the way of a snake on a rock (eye for details), the way of a ship on the high seas (float and not sink; treat upon all obstacles), and the way of a man with a maiden (be passionate on your job) – Let your Vision lead you & do not be aimless.
Under three things the earth trembles: a servant who becomes king (Improve yourself to deliver your best), a fool who is full of food (deserve & earn your worth), an unloved woman who is married (be good to your wife), and a maidservant who displaces her mistress (never be a thorn to your bosses; let them be happy about you) – otherwise, your life will be shaky & peace-less.
Small, yet extremely wise: Ants: Use all your strength; plan and do things; work now for future; make your home at one hierarchy above; locusts: ensure that your boss need not worry about you; lizard: have excellent relation with your boss & be of great value to him. Majestic: a lion, mighty among beasts, who retreats before nothing; a strutting rooster, a he-goat, and a king with his army around him. Never fear man.
Take every effort to improve your image at your work place. Be bold and strong, as well best on your soft skills. Have an army of mentors at your office, who will advise you as well support you – first you be so to your subordinates and colleagues, and even to your boss, and be sure they will be so to you.
