Why we keep patriotism just a line for 2 days in a year?

The world states India to be Economic Capital of World in near future!

India’s economy to be completely stable or maintain a complete stance in 2009 where as US and European economies going to see economic downturn in the coming quarters Swiss banking major UBS said.

The Japanese economy is expected to stagnate at best in the coming year. Large countries such as China, India or Indonesia should fare better, as they have a smaller export ratio than the smaller Asian economies,” UBS economists stated.

In Just feet of 61th years of independence, I as India had started gaining confidence of world in terms of economics. Then what’s wrong with following

Why we keep fighting on communal or regional lines?
Why don’t we strive to serve nation?
Why we keep patriotism just a line for 2 days in a year?
Why we want Maharashtra or Bihar to be a different country alike?

The love story of Ron and Edna

Just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to, doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have.

Ron and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital. One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool. Ron suddenly jumped into the deep end. He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there.

Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled him out. When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Edna heroic act she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as she now considered her to be mentally stable.

When she went to tell Edna the news she said, ‘Edna, I have good news and bad news. The good news is you’re being discharged, since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the life of the person you love. I have concluded that your act displays sound mindedness. The bad news is, Ron hung himself in the bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him. I am so sorry, but he’s dead.’

Edna replied…
He didn’t hang himself, I put him there to dry. How soon can I go home? ‘

Sky is not the limit for India anymore

After nine years of hard work, the countdown for Chandrayaan-1 – India’s first unmanned moon mission – has begun at the Sriharikota space station. The launch is scheduled for early Wednesday morning.

Chandrayaan-1 will orbit the moon for about two years, mapping the topography and mineral content of the lunar soil. It will take off from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh, about 80 km from Chennai, and off the Bay of Bengal.

The Chandrayaan-1 launch would be around 0620 hrs IST on October 22, weather conditions permitting.

Ninety-nine per cent of the integration and testing is complete and the countdown has begun for India’s historic tryst with the moon.The success of Chandrayaan-1 will catapult India among the top five space exploring countries of the world.

Chairman of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Dr G Madhavan Nair said, “It has been a dream of Indian scientists to send satellites around the moon and collect data about its surface features, minerals and so on.”

Experts said that just getting the satellite right isn’t enough. A huge ground network is needed to monitor and control it. So 30 kilometres outside Bangalore, ISRO built this tracking station.

Director of ISRO Satellite Centre, TK Alex said, “We have to make sure that the trajectory is correct. Moon must be exactly where we decided it should be when we designed the satellite.”

While Indians designed and built everything on this mission – they weren’t averse to letting others hitch a ride. There are 11 different machines on board this mission – five from India, four from Europe and two from NASA.

On Wednesday morning, nine years of hard work will be put to the test. If successful, the Chandrayaan-1 mission will be a clear statement that sky is not the limit for India anymore.

Think Smart!!

Here’s why cricket is not in the Olympics

For the moment, cricket does not figure in the International Olympic Committee’s scheme of things, said IOC President Jacques Rogge here.

On the possible inclusion of cricket in future Olympics, he said, “Cricket is a very famous sport in India. We are going to include two more sports to the Olympic programme next year at our Congress in Denmark in October.

“In London we have 26 sports; in 2016 we will have 28… But cricket’s inclusion will not be possible in 2016 because it is not in the list of African sport.”

The IOC has shortlisted soft ball, baseball, karate, squash, rugby, roller skating and golf from which two will be selected.

Regarding cricket’s inclusion, Rogge added, “It all depends on the ICC. If they want to include it in the Commonwealth Games or Olympics they first have to be an IOC member. As of now they are not a member… We have received no application from the ICC.”

Yeh hai mumbai meri jaan………………….

A recent incident saw one such hapless victim falling prey to the overenthusiastic nature of Bombay’s local train commuters. Our hero, a man from Pune, wanted to go to Matunga, but as luck and trains would have it, boarded a fast train not halting at his destination. He panicked on realising his mistake but by then the local had started moving. On seeing his plight, a sympathetic co-passenger decided to come to his rescue. It seemed that he had been commuting by that particular train (6:03pm Kasara Fast) for the past 6 years and had noticed that the train always slowed down just before Matunga station and crawled at a snail’s pace while passing through it. He told the man to jump out of the running train as it slowed down and that with a little bit of fleet-footedness, he would make it safely on terra firma. However, knowing the man’s inexperience, he added some words of caution:

“Keep running the moment you jump or you’ll fall. Just keep running.” He stressed the word “running” lest the man not know the laws of motion. The train did slow down just before Matunga station and at the prompting of his mentor, our hero jumped out of the train and started running as if all hell had broken loose. What he didn’t realise, of course, was that he was running parallel to the train instead of running away from it. Meanwhile, the train slowed down further, so that the man was running faster than the train.

In the process, he reached the door of the next compartment and the footboard commuters there pulled him in thinking he was trying to board the train! To his agony, the train picked up speed and sped past Matunga and his new co-passengers started to congratulate him on how lucky he had been, until he told them that they had actually undone what he had done with great difficulty. Those standing at the door of his “ex-compartment” had witnessed the whole drama and just couldn’t stop laughing at the poor man’s situation, while he grinned sheepishly.

YOU CAN’T WIN WITH WOMEN

WIFE VS. HUSBAND
A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word.An earlier discussion had led to an argument andneither of them wanted to concede their position. As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically, ‘Relatives of yours?’ ‘Yep,’ the wife replied, ‘in-laws.’

W O R D S
A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day.. 30,000 to a man’s 15,000.The wife replied, ‘The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men…The husband then turned to his wife and asked, ‘What?’

CREATION
A man said to his wife one day, ‘I don’t know how you can be so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time.’ The wife responded, ‘Allow me to explain God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me; God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!’

The Silent Treatment
A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment. Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight. Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper, ‘Please wake me at 5:00 AM.’ He left it where he knew she would find it. The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn’t wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed. The paper said, ‘It is 5:00 AM. Wake up.’

Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.
