Some Childhood Classics

Posham pa bhai posham pa
sau(100) rupay ki ghadi churayi
ab to jail mein jana padega
jail ki roti khana padega
jail ka pani peena padega
thayi thuiya thush
madari baba fushhhhhh….

Machhali Jal ki Rani hai
Jeewan uska paani hai
hath lagao darr jayegi
bahar nikalo mar jayegi…

Jhooth bolna paap hai
nadi kinare saanp hai
kali mai aayegi
tumko utha le jayegi…

Ten Reasons to Throw out your Microwave Oven

From the conclusions of the Swiss, Russian and German scientific clinical studies, we can no longer ignore the microwave oven sitting in our kitchens. Based on this research, following are the ten reasons to throw out your Microwave Oven

1). Continually eating food processed from a microwave oven causes long term – permanent – brain damage by “shorting out” electrical impulses in the brain [de-polarizing or de-magnetizing the brain tissue].

2). The human body cannot metabolize [break down] the unknown by-products created in microwaved food.

3). Male and female hormone production is shut down and/or altered by continually eating microwaved foods.

4). The effects of microwaved food by-products are residual [long term, permanent] within the human body.

5). Minerals, vitamins, and nutrients of all microwaved food is reduced or altered so that the human body gets little or no benefit, or the human body absorbs altered compounds that cannot be broken down.

6). The minerals in vegetables are altered into cancerous free radicals when cooked in microwave ovens.

7). Microwaved foods cause stomach and intestinal cancerous growths [tumors]. This may explain the rapidly increased rate of colon cancer in America .

8). The prolonged eating of microwaved foods causes cancerous cells to increase in human blood.

9). Continual ingestion of microwaved food causes immune system deficiencies through lymph gland and blood serum alterations.

10). Eating microwaved food causes loss of memory, concentration, emotional instability, and a decrease of intelligence.

Bhulaya Na Jaa Saka ….

Palkon pe aanso’on ko sajaya na jaa saka
us ko bhi Dil ka haal bataya na jaa saka

zakhmon se choor choor tha yeh Dil mera
ek zakham bhi us ko dikhaya na jaa saka

jab teri yaad aayi to koshish ke ba wajood
aankhon main aanso’on ko chupaya na jaa saka

kuch log zindagi main aise bhi aaye hain
jin ko kisi bhi lamhe bhulaya na jaa saka

bas is khayaal se kahin us ko dukh na ho
hum se to haal-e-ghum bhi sunaya na jaa saka

woh muskuraha tha mere ru-ba-ru magar
chehre ka rang us se chupaya na jaa saka

tanhaiyon ki aag main hum jal gaye
magar faasla ana ka mitaya na jaa saka

Sahayari

Aa apni zindagi ki har sham teray naam kar doun
Teri hi ankhon ka jam teray naam kar doun

Main doob jaoun teri in jheel is gehri ankhon mein
Phir apni barbadi ka ilzam teray naam kar doun

Mein apni Rouh ko teray Wajood mai bhar doun
Phir apni zaat apna har payam teray naam kar doun

TU mujhay mohabbat ka aghaz day sanam
Mein apnay pyaar ka anjam tere naam kar doun

Mohabbaton key qaseeday likhoun teri sana mein
Hazaron pyaar Kay paighaam tere naam kar doun

Hou jis ka zikar mohabbat ki har kahani mein
Eik aisa pyaar ka paigham tere naam kar doun

India is the 125th happiest country in the world

India is the 125th happiest country in the world, a world map of happiness prepared by a British scientist claimed on Friday.

Denmark is the happiest country in the world and Burundi in Africa is the unhappy as per the map produced by Adrian White, Analytic Social Psychologist at the University of Leicester.

According to the study, happiness is found to be most closely associated with health, followed by wealth and education. China is happier than India with an 82nd position while Japan is placed at 90.

“We were surprised to see countries in Asia scoring so low, with China 82nd, Japan 90th and India 125th. These are countries that are thought as having a strong sense of collective identity which other researchers have associated with well-being,” a University of Leicester release said.

“It is also notable that many of the largest countries in terms of population do quite badly. With China 82nd, India 125th and Russia 167th it is interesting to note that larger populations are not associated with happy countries,” it said.

Switzerland, Austria and Iceland follow Denmark in the Map of happiness. It places United States at 23, UK at 41 and France at 62.

The study is based on data from 178 countries and on the findings of over 100 different studies around the world, which questioned 80,000 people. Participants were asked questions related to happiness and satisfaction with life.

Beauty Tips . . .

For attractive lips,
Speak words of kindness.

For lovely eyes,
Seek out the good in people.

For a slim figure,
Share your food with the hungry.

For beautiful hair,
Let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.

For poise,
Walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone.

People,
Even more than things, have to be restored, renewed,revived,reclaimed, and redeemed; Never throw out anybody.

Remember,
If you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm.

As you grow older,
you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears,
The figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.

The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes,
because that is the doorway to her heart,the place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.

It is the caring that she lovingly gives,
the passion that she shows,

And the beauty of a woman with passing years-only grows . . .

India to launch Chandrayaan-I in 2007-08

India will launch its first moon mission Chandrayaan-I in 2007-2008 during which the world would see similar endeavours by China, Japan, US and Europe, opening new vistas for mutually beneficial cooperation, a senior Indian space scientist said on Thursday.

“Chandrayaan-I is a lunar polar orbiter designed for chemical, mineralogic and topographic mapping of the lunar surface. It will provide complete coverage of the moon from an altitude of about 100 km during its observation period of two years planned in 2008-2010,” said Bhandari, also President of International Lunar Exploration Working Group (ILEWG).

CEO Ramadorai is sixth most influential IT leader

In what can be termed as the growing prowess of the Indian IT sector, Tata Consultancy Services Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director S Ramadorai has been named as the sixth most influential person in the global enterprise IT sector.

Ramadorai was ranked a notch below Oracle’s Larry Ellison, but was positioned above IT biggies such as Alfred Chuang and Kevin Rolls by global IT magazine Computer Business Review .

“What led us to put him at number six is his firm’s winning of one of the UK’s largest ever business process outsourcing deals, a $848 million, 12-year-contract from UK’s Pearl Group. It is also the largest manpower transfer deal undertaken by any Indian IT company,” said CBR officials.

“His efforts have helped make TCS one of the largest global software and service companies, with almost 50,000 associates working in 53 countries and an annual revenue of $2 billion.

Under Ramadorai’s watch, TCS has more or less doubled its revenue every two years. TCS best reflects the profound influence that offshoring, and in particular Indian offshoring, has had on the enterprise IT sector,” they said.

UK-based CBR is considered as the largest IT enterprise magazine in the world.

TCS, Microsoft spur IT boom in Guj

Ack:- Parchuri Gopikrishna

With the entry of IT giants like Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and Microsoft, Gujarat is hoping for a boom in this industry.

“Earlier we were not able to attract investments because there were communal riots, the attack on the Akshardham temple and so on. Now it is happening at the Infocity,” said Anupam Saxena of Creative Infocity Ltd, which holds a major stake in the IT park project promoted by the state government.

He said government policies had led to a reduction of around 40 percent in the cost of setting up IT businesses in Gujarat.

Along with Microsoft and TCS, around 40 companies are at the Infocity, which is close to the state capital Gandhinagar and was constructed in 2000.

How to counter telemarketers…

Do you hate getting phone calls from telemarketers as much as I do? Well, here are some ways to get your revenge!

1.After the telemarketer finishes speaking, ask him/her to marry you.

2. Tell the telemarketer you are busy at the moment, and ask him/her if he/she will give you his/her home phone number so you can call him/her back.

3. Ask them to repeat everything they say, several times.

4. Tell them it is dinner time, BUT ask if they would please hold. Put them on your speaker phone while you continue to eat at your leisure. Smack your food loudly and continue with your dinner conversation.

5. Tell them that all business goes through your agent, and hand the phone to your five year old child.

6. Tell them you are hard of hearing and that they need to speak up…louder…louder…louder!

7.Tell them to speak very slowly because you want to write every word down.

8.If they start out with, “How are you today?”, say “I’m so glad you asked, because no one these days seems to care, and I have all these problems…”

9.Catch them off guard by saying in a husky voice, “What are you wearing?”

10. Cry out in surprise, “Helen, is that you? I’ve been hoping you’d call! How is the family?” When they insist they are not Helen, tell them to stop joking. This works especially well if the telemarketer is really male.
