The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
Jigar, Since you asked this in the testing, I'll point out that static methods are often harder to test. If the static method calls a database or another system (or anything else you may not want happening under test), callers to the method can't mock it out. For this reason, I prefer a singleton with an interface.
