cannot be straightened, and in fact the beauty of it

60 Ways to Keep Your Husband's Love 


1. Behave like a female, i.e. all the tenderness of a 

femalea man doesn't want a man for his wife! 

2. Dress pleasantly/attracti vely. If you are a home

-maker, don't stay in your sleeping suit all day. 

3. Smell good! 

4. Don't lay out all your problems on your husband 

as soon as he walks in. Give him a little mental 

break. 

5. Don't keep asking him, "What are you thinking?" 

6. Stop nagging non-stop before unless Allah (God) 

gives you something really to complain about. 

7. Absolutely no talking about your spousal 

problems to anyone you meet, not even under the 

pretense of seeking help! If you think you want to 

solve legitimate marital issues, then go seek 

counseling with the right person who can give 

advice in either: 

8. Be kind to your mother-in-law the same way you 

would like your husband to be kind to your own 

mother. 

9. Learn all the rights and obligations of each other 

in Islam. Focus on fulfilling your obligations, not 

demanding your rights 

10. Race to the door when he comes home, as if 

you were waiting for him. Smile and hug him. 

11. Keep your house clean, at least to the level that 

he wants it. 

12. Compliment him on the things you know he's 

not so confident about (looks, intelligence, etc.) 

This will build his self-esteem. 

13. Tell him he's the best husband ever. 

14. Call his family often. 

15. Give him a simple task to do at home and then 

thank him when he does it. This will encourage him 

to do more. 

16. When he's talking about something boring, 

listen and nod your head. Even ask questions to 

make him think you're interested. 

17. Encourage him to do good deeds. 

18. If he's in a bad mood, give him some space. 

He'll get over it, inshaAllah (God willing). 

19. Thank him sincerely for providing you with food 

and shelter. It's a big deal. 

20. If he's angry with you and starts yelling, let him 

yell it out while you're quiet. You will see your fight 

will end a lot faster. Then when he's calm, you can 

tell him your side of the story and how you want 

him to change something. 

21. When you're mad at him, don't say "YOU make 

me furious", rather, "This action makes me upset". 

Direct your anger to the action and circumstance 

rather than at him. 

22. Remember that your husband has feelings, so 

take them into consideration. 

23. Let him chill with his friends without guilt, 

especially if they're good guys. 
Encourage him to go out, so he doesn't feel 

"cooped up" at home. 

24. If your husband is annoyed over a little thing 

you do (and you can control it), then stop doing it. 

Really 

25. Learn how to tell him what you expect without 

him having to guess all the time. Learn to 

communicate your feelings. 

26. Don't get mad over small things. It's not worth 

it. 

27. Make jokes. If you're not naturally funny, go on 

the internet and read some jokes, and then tell 

them to him. 

28. Tell him you're the best wife ever and 

compliment yourself on certain things you know 

you're good at. 

29. Learn to make his favorite dish. 

30. Don't ever, EVER talk bad about him with 

friends or family unnecessarily. If they end up 

agreeing with you, you will see that it hits you back 

in the face because you get more depressed that 

you have a bad husbandand other people also 

think you have a bad husband. 

31.. Use your time wisely and get things 

accomplished. If you're a home-maker, take online 

classes and get active in your community. This will 

make you happy and a secondary bonus is that it 

impresses your husband. 

32. Do all of the above feel sabeelillah and you will 

see Allah (God) put barakah (good luck) in 

everything you do. 

33. Husband and wife should discuss and 

communicate with wisdom with each other to 

convey what they like and dislike of each other to 

do or not to do. Do NOT give commands or 

instructions like he's your servant. "They are 

garment to each other" [Surah Baqarah, 2:187] 

34. Tell your husband you love him, many, many 

times. Aisha, radiallahu anha, narrated that the 

Prophet Muhammad, used to ask her how strong 

was her love for him, she said like "a knot." And the 

next time he would ask her, "How is that knot?" He 

also used to reply to her saying, "Jazzakillah, O 

Aishah, wallahi, you have not rejoiced in me as I 

have rejoiced in you."

35. Have a race with your husband and let him win, 

even if you are much fitter and stronger than him. 

36. Keep fit and take care of your health so you will 

remain a strong mother, wife, cook and 

housekeeper, InshaALLAH (GOD)  you will not get 

FAT and frumpy.. 

37. Refine and cultivate good mannerisms i.e do 

not whine, don't laugh or talk too loud or walk like 

an elephant. 

38. Do not leave the house without his permission 

and certainly not without his knowledge. 

39. Make sure all his clothes are clean and pressed 

so he is always looking fresh and crisp. 

40. Don't discuss important/controver sial matters 

with him when he is tired or sleepy. Find right time 

for right discussion. 

41. The way to a man's heart is through his 

stomach. 

42. Always let him know that you appreciate him 

working and bringing home the "dough". It makes 

it easier for him to go to work. 

43. Make sure you ALWAYS have something for 

dinner. 

44. Brush your hair, everyday. 

45. Don't forget to do laundry. 

46. Surprise him with gifts. Even necessities, such 

as new shoes, can be gifts. 

47. Listen to him. (Even when he talks about 

extremely boring things like basketball or 

computers.) 

48. Try (hard as it might be) to take interest in his 

hobbies 

49. Try not to go shopping too much  and spend 

all his money. 

50. Look attractive and be seductive towards him. 

Flirt with him. 

51. Learn tricks and "techniques" to please your 

husband in intimacy. (Of course goes both ways.) 

52. Prepare for special evenings with him with 

special dinner and exclusive time (no children 

permitted).. 

53. Take care of your skin, especially your face. The 

face is center of attraction. 

54. If you are not satisfied intimately, talk to him 

and tell him. Help him or provide resources, don't 

wait until matters become worse. 

55. Ask Allah (God) to strengthen and preserve the 

bonds of compassion and love between the two of 

you, every day, every prayer. Ask him to protect 

that bond from satan. When a lesser devil destroys 

the love between spouses, he is the most beloved 

of satan. Nothing works like du'ah (prayer), and 

love only exists between spouses where Allah 

(God) instills it. 

56. Don't EVER compare your husbands to other 

husbands! For example don't say, "Well her 

husband doesn't do that, why do you " (thats a 

killer!) 

57. Be happy with what you have because no one is 

perfect. If you want perfection, wait until you enter 

Jannah (heaven)  together inshaAllah (God 

willing)and of course, vice versa! 

58. Strive for Allah (God)'s love first and foremost! 

if all wives try to seek Allah (God)'s love and 

pleasure, surely, they can keep their husbands love 

too. And rememberif Allah (God) loves you, the 

angels will love you, and the entire creation will 

love you. 

59. If you pack a lunch for your husband to take to 

work, from time to time, sneak in a little love note 

or sweet poem. If he doesn't take a lunch, leave the 

note somewhere else for him to find, like in his 

briefcase, or wallet or on the car steering-wheel 

60. Pray together (Wake him up for Qiyam ul-Layl 

(in the last third of the night) and ask him to pray 

with you.)

(Above is written by a Muslim, hence references to 

Allah (God), Prophet Muhammad  and  Holy Quran 

(the Holy book of Muslims with a little editing by 

me. Adopt what you can to make your marriage a 

success

The Basics of RSS
By Werner Schamberger (c) 2007

What is RSS?
=========================
You probably have seen this three-letter acronym in the
course of your internet surfing. RSS stands for 
Really Simple Syndication 
or 
Rich Site Summary; 
syndicating means republishing
an article that comes from another source such as a website. A
RSS feed is a means of publicizing updates about websites. It
may or may not include a summary and photos of the latest
posting. But those that provide summaries (thus Rich Site
Summary) allow users to skim through the article so that they
can decide later on if they want to access the website source.
The RSS feed usually contains the title of the update originating
from the website. It is also usually the link to the website
source.

What are the Benefits of RSS?

RSS provides benefits to both readers (users) and web 

publishers.

1. It gives you the latest updates. Whether it is about the
weather, new music, software upgrade, local news, or a new
posting from a rarely-updated site, you can learn about the
latest as soon as it comes out.

2. It saves on surfing time. Since an RSS feed provides a
summary of the related article, it saves the user's time by
helping s/he decide on which items to prioritize when reading
or browsing the net.

3. It gives the power of subscription to the user. Users are
given a free-hand on which websites to subscribe to in their
RSS aggregators which they can change at any time they decide
differently.

4. It lessens the clutter in your inbox. Although your email
address will be required to enjoy the services of online RSS
aggregators, RSS does not use your email address to send the
updates.

5. It is spam free. Unlike email subscriptions, RSS does not
make use of your email address to send updates thus your 

privacy
is kept safe from spam mails.

6. Unsubscribing is hassle-free. Unlike email subscriptions
where the user is asked questions on why s/he is unsubscribing
and then the user is asked to confirm unsubscribing, all
you have to do is to delete the RSS feed from your aggregator.

7. It can be used as an advertising or marketing tool. Users who
subscribe to or syndicate product websites receive the latest
news on products and services without the website sending 

spam
mail. This is advantageous to both the web user and the website
owner since advertising becomes targeted; those who are 

actually
interested in their products are kept posted.

What are the Drawbacks of RSS?

The disadvantages of RSS stem from user-preference concerns 

and
the fact that it is a new technology.

1. Some users prefer receiving email updates over an RSS feed.

2. Graphics and photos do not appear in all RSS feeds. For
conciseness and ease of publication, RSS feeds do not display
the photos from the original site in announcing the update
except for some web-based aggregators.

3. The identity of the source website can be confusing. Since
RSS feeds do not display the actual URL or name of the website,
it can sometimes get confusing on what feed a user is actually
reading.

4. Publishers cannot determine how many users are subscribed 

to
their feed and the frequency of their visits. Moreover, they
do not know the reasons why users unsubscribe which could be
important in improving their advertising.

5. RSS feeds create higher traffic and demands on the server.
Most readers still prefer the whole update over a brief summary
of the entry, thus they still access the site.

6. Since it is a new technology, many sites still do not support
RSS.

How Do I Start Using RSS?

There are two things needed: an RSS feed and an RSS 

aggregator
or reader. The RSS feed comes from an RSS-supported website.
There are also websites that provide a list of RSS feeds from
different websites. An RSS aggregator is used to read the RSS
feed from the source website. It scans and collects data on the
latest RSS feeds from the worldwide web.

An aggregator comes in two forms: a downloadable program, 

also
known as a desktop aggregator, and an online or web-based
aggregator. Downloadable aggregators may require payment 

before
they can be acquired, while internet-based aggregators are
usually free of charge. All you need to do is to register an
account and you are ready to use their services. Both versions
allow you to customize, or choose, which RSS feeds to enter.
Paid aggregators are usually chosen by more experienced 

users
and they usually allow more freedom in customizing feeds.

1. Choose an RSS aggregator to use. For beginners, web-based
aggregators are recommended since they are usually user-

friendly.

2. Scan the homepage of your target website for the RSS or XML
button. It contains the RSS code you need to enter in the
aggregator. Copy this code. Syndic8 (http://www.syndic8.com/)
provides a directory of websites that support RSS.

3. Paste the code (which contains the URL of the website) in
your aggregator. There is a space provided for pasting the code.

After you have done these three easy steps, you can start
reading the RSS feeds coming from the website. New postings
appear as they are published in real time at the source website.

RSS and Internet Marketing

The original idea of RSS came from Netscape, where the
intention was to provide a means for users to customize their
personal homepages with links to websites that were of interest
to them, similar to bookmarking websites.

The application of RSS to internet marketing was an unforeseen
development to RSS technology developers. Since users are 

given
the freedom to add RSS feeds to their aggregators, those who 

are
interested in particular products and services available on the
internet can now be notified real time. Marketing becomes more
specific to interested people and not a hit-and-miss operation.

Medium to big-scale companies who intend to use RSS for 

marketing
their products and services should consider linking up with 

email
account providers, (e.g. Yahoo, MSN, Google mail); networking
websites (e.g. Friendster, Multiply, My Space, Hi5); websites of
newspapers and television network websites (e.g. New York 

Times,
CNN). Smaller companies can also look at networking websites
as well as personal blog websites (e.g. Blogspot) and websites
of clubs and organizations that would probably make use of 

their
products or services e.g. a fishing supplies store can look for
the website of their local fishing club for possible RSS
marketing.

Clearly, RSS is an innovation in worldwide web information
management as well as online marketing. We can expect better
RSS technology in the not-so-distant future as its popularity
increases among users and website owners alike.

ARTICLE START ==================
There are many ways in which you can create a blog, the easiest
being to use a blog host such as Blogger or Wordpress.com. 

Using
these, you can create your blog on any topic you want and even
customize it to suit your needs to a certain extent.

I say `to a certain extent' since no blog that is operated from
a blog host's website can ever be truly yours, and you
consequently have limited control over the design and
occasionally even the content of your blog. That is because
neither the software needed to manage the blog, nor the files
that hold your content, are contained on your website, but on
that of somebody else. That `somebody else' is either the
operator of Blogger or of Wordpress, or whatever blogging host
you happen to be using.

So what does that mean to you in practise? I have no intention
of going over the pros and cons of the hosted versions of
Wordpress and Blogger, and have provided a link on my website
that provides that information for you, but it should be clear
to anybody that if you host your own blog from your own 

website,
you have much more control and latitude in the design,
formatting and content of your blog.

It is not difficult to upload Wordpress to your website and run
it from there. You can then upload any number of the multitude
of plugins and templates available to enable you to design your
blog in any way you want. You can change the appearance and
content not only of your navbar, but can use html to change
practically every aspect of your blog to suit your needs. The
question you will be asking is how you get Wordpress onto your
own website.

It is easier than you think. Wordpress.org provides the
software, and you have to upload it to your website into a
directory of your choice. The easiest way is to use an ftp
client, and you can get information on good free ftp software on
my website or blog. You then have one or two alterations to 

make
to some of the files and you are done. You have a blog that you
can change to suit your own needs without any of the
restrictions that are imposed by the Wordpress website.

You can change the template to any of the thousands on offer
online, either free or paid, and you can also use software to
design your own or to customize the templates to your own
design. You can change the whole look and feel of your blog, 

and
offer whatever links that you feel necessary. You can put
whatever adverts on your blog that you want, including Adsense
blocks, and use your blog to make you money.

Creating a blog is easy, and if you know how to create a blog
exactly as you want it, then you will have a great tool at your
disposal that you can use to promote any product you want, and
also to make direct sales, either of products or of advertising.
There are many ways in which you can use your blog either to
promote products or to earn money through advertising. You 

have
few restrictions when operating a Wordpress blog from your 

own
website; all you have to know is how to do it.

Once you know how to create a bog on your own site, you can
harness the power of blogs to achieve what want to achieve with
your website. There are few limits and your imagination will be
your major asset, so use it.

website and how to use your blogs to make money, check out

ખુરશી પર બેઠું હતું

સામે કરોડો હાથીઓ

ધ્રુજતા ઉભા હતા.

પેન્શન

ડેરીફાર્મની સામે

એક ગાય

વાગોળે

દૂધનાં બિલો

જુનાં..


પ્રાર્થના

 એક ઉંદર

પ્રાથના કરતો હતો !

 હે પ્રભુ

 આખો હિમાલય ચીઝનો થઈ જાય તો

તારા ચરણમાં

પાંચ શ્રીફળ ચીઝનાં,


નાઇટ_લવ

બેવફા સૂરજથી કંટાળીને

ઘૂવડોએ રાત સાથે
પ્રીત બાંધી.


સિંહાવલોકન

ગીરમાંથી આવેલા

મારા એક મહેમાને

પ્રાણી ઘરના પિંજરમાં

પહેલી વાર જિવનમાં
મારી સાથે
સિંહ જોયો.


કાગવાણી

એક કાગડો ઊડી

હંસની કને પહોંચ્યો,

હાથ જોડી એ બોલ્યો:

ઓળખ્યો મને કાકા,

હું તમારો ભત્રીજો !


ગર્દભ _ખેડાણ

દોડ્યા

દોડયા

દોડ્યા

ખંભાતથી ખેડા

બની શકયા ના

બની શકયા ના
બની શકયા ના

ઘોડા કદી ગધેડા.


ઇચ્છા

એક ઉંદરે જઈને
 હાથીને કહ્યું :

સાથી

આજ બીજું કંઇ નહીં તો

તારું દર
 મને દેખાડ.


મચ્છર મોજીલો

 એક મચ્છર

ફલીટના શાવર બાથમાં

મોજીલા મૂડમાં નહાતો હતો

ગાતો હતો

મેલેરિયાનું એક ગીત.


ગૌ પ્રશ્ન

દૂધ ભરેલી
પ્લાસ્ટિકની કોઠળી જોઇ

એક ગાયે

પૂછ્યું બીજી ગાયને;

આ આંચળ કેવા ?


અશ્વ દ્રિધા

ગાડીવાન થોડો છું ?

ગાડીવાન ચબુક માર

હું તારો ઘોડો છું.

બે કલાકના બદલે
 દસ કલાક
 મોડો છું.

ચમકતો   ને  દમકતો  શાહજહાંનો  મહેલ  જોવા દે

[1] ઉતાવળે પરણીને આપણે નિરાંતે પસ્તાઈએ છીએ !
[2] ભેગા થવું એ શરૂઆત છે, ભેગા રહેવું તે પ્રગતિ છે, પરંતુ ભેગા મળી કામ કરવું તે સફળતા 

છે.
[3] નથી તેની ચિંતા છોડશો તો છે તેનો આનંદ માણી શકશો.
[4] જીભ કદાચ તોતડી હશે તો ચાલશે, પરંતુ તોછડી હશે તો નહિ ચાલે.
[5] મેળવજો નીતિથી, વાપરજો પ્રીતિથી, ભોગવજો રીતિથી, તો બચી જશો દુર્ગતિથી.
[6] દુશ્મન કરતાં દોસ્તને માફ કરી દેવાનું કામ વધુ કપરું છે!!
[7] જરૂર કરતાં વધારે જમવું એટલે સ્મશાનમાં જવું !
[8] પત્નીની વાત પતિ ખરેખર સાંભળતો ત્યારે હોય છે, જ્યારે પોતાની પત્ની ઉચ્ચારતી ન 

હોય તેવો શબ્દેશબ્દ એ સમજી જતો હોય !
[9] લગ્ન જીવન સફળ બનાવવા માટે અનેક વાર પ્રેમમાં પડવું જરૂરી છે  હંમેશા એની એ 

વ્યક્તિ સાથે.
[10] માતાનું હૈયું એ શિશુની શાળા છે.
[11] એક કુટુંબનું જે નિર્માણ કરે છે ને તેને ટકાવી રાખે છે, અને જેના હાથ હેઠળ બાળકો 

ઊછરીને ખડતલ ને ચારિત્ર્યવાન નરનારીઓ બને છે, તે નારીનું સ્થાન એકમાત્ર ઈશ્વરની પછી 

આવે છે.
[12] સફળતાની સડક એવા પુરુષોથી ભરચક હોય છે  જેમને પીઠ પાછળથી એમની પત્નીઓ 

આગે બઢાવતી હોય છે.
[13] સર્જનહારની સમસ્ત સૃષ્ટિમાં સુંદરમાં સુંદર ને સૌથી દિવ્ય છે બાળકો.
[14] પ્રાણ એ પ્રથમ ભેટ, સ્નેહ એ બીજી અને સમજણ એ ત્રીજી.
[15] વસ્તુની નજીક જઈએ એટલે એનું સૌંદર્ય પ્રગટ થાય છે, પણ એનું કાવ્ય તો દૂરથી જ 

ખીલે છે.
[16] માણસ ફુલાવાનું જલ્દી સ્વીકારે છે, યોગ્ય રીતે પણ સંકોચાવાનું નહીં !
[17] સૌને મન ભરીને માણવું છે, જીવવું છે- પણ મન ક્યારેય ભરાતું નથી, પેટની જેમ !
[18] વ્યક્તિની પ્રસન્નતા એની આંતરિક સુંદરતા દર્શાવે છે, વિચારો એના મનોજગતના 

આંદોલનોની સ્થિતિ બતાવે છે અને વર્તન એનાં હૃદયની ભાષા વ્યકત કરે છે.
[19] મનની વિચાર દષ્ટિને પણ મોતિયો આવે છે ખરો !
[20] જીવનનો પહેલો સંઘર્ષ મન સાથે કરવો પડે છે. કારણ કે એને નકારાત્મક વલણનો સહેલો 

રસ્તો જ પસંદ છે.
[21] માણસને મોતથી વધુ એનાં ડર ની બીક લાગે છે !
[22] આદત ધીમેધીમે જરૂરિયાત બની જાય ત્યારે માનવીની મજ્બૂરી જીવનને મૂરઝાવી દે છે.
[23] પૃથ્વી પર લહેરાતાં ફૂલો, ફૂલો પર રહેલાં ઝાકળબિંદુઓ અને બાળકો ઈશ્વરના દસ્તખત 

છે.
[24] માણસનો વ્યવહાર અને વૃત્તિઓ એનું દર્પણ છે.
[25] આત્મપ્રશંસા જેવું કોઈ ઝેર નથી, આત્મનિંદા જેવું કોઈ અમૃત નથી !
[26] ખાઈમાં પડેલો બચી શકે, પણ અદેખાઈમાં પડેલો ન બચી શકે !
[27] પુરુષના જીવનમાં અહંકાર અને સ્ત્રીના જીવનમાં અલંકાર તોફાનો સર્જે છે.
[29] જે આળસુ છે તેને માટે જ ભગવાને આવતીકાલ સર્જી છે !
[30] માણસ હોંશિયાર છે કે નહીં તે એણે આપેલા જવાબ પરથી આપણે કહી શકીએ. એ શાણો 

છે કે કેમ તે એના સવાલો પરથી !
[31] લગ્ન પહેલાં તમારી આંખો ખૂબ ઉઘાડી રાખજો, અને પછી અરધી મીંચેલી.
[32] જગતમાં માત્ર બે જ વ્યક્તિ મૂર્ખ છે. એક નિંદા કરનારી અને બીજી, રસપૂર્વક નિંદા 

સાંભળનારી !

પ્રભુભક્તિમાં જેમ બને તેમ તત્પર રહેવું, મોક્ષનો એ ધુરંધર માર્ગ મને લાગ્યો છે.
-શ્રીમદ્ રાજચંદ્ર

મારો શિષ્ય એક જ છે અને તે છે મોહનદાસ ગાંધી. એને કેળવતાં અને કાબૂમાં રાખતાં મારો 
દમ નીકળી જાય છે. બીજો શિષ્ય કરવા ક્યાં જાઉં ?
-ગાંધીજી

જે પ્રેમ નિત્ય નવીન નથી હોતો, તે એક આદત અને છેવટે એક બંધન બની જાય છે.
-ખલીલ જિબ્રાન

પ્રેમ કરવો તે કલા છે, પણ તેને નિભાવવો એ સાધના છે.
-વિનોબા ભાવે

સરસ જિંદગી એ છે જેમાં જ્ઞાનનું માર્ગદર્શન હોય અને પ્રેમની પ્રેરણા હોય.
-બર્ટ્રાન્ડ રસેલ

હે પરમાત્મા, મારી વાણી મારા મનમાં સ્થિર થાઓ અને મારું મન મારી વાણીમાં સ્થિર થાઓ.
-ઐતરેય ઉપનિષદ

દરેક વ્યક્તિમાં અનંત શક્યતા છે. આપણામાંના પ્રત્યેકમાં કોઈક એવું બીજ છે જેમાંથી વૃક્ષ 
પ્રગટી શકે.
-પ્રે. મહાદેવ ધોરિયાણી

તમારી આકાંક્ષાઓ એ તમારી શક્યતાઓ છે. જેવી આકાંક્ષા તેવી સિદ્ધિ.
-રોબર્ટ બ્રાઉનીંગ

જેણે મનને જીતી લીધું છે, તેને ટાઢ-તડકો, સુખ-દુ:ખ, માન-અપમાન બધું સરખું છે.
-ચાણક્ય

જો તમને એક ક્ષણનો પણ અવકાશ મળે, સમય મળે તો તમે તેનો ઉપયોગ શુભ કાર્ય માટે 
કરો, કારણ કાળનું ચક્ર અત્યંત ક્રુર અને ઉપદ્રવી છે.
-બેન્જામીન ફ્રેન્કલીન

જો તમારે સફળતા પ્રાપ્ત કરવી હોય તો તમારી પાસે પ્રચંડ ખંત અને દઢ ઈચ્છાશક્તિ હોવાં
જોઈએ.
-સ્વામી વિવેકાનંદ

પહેલાં ઈશ્વર પ્રાપ્ત કરો. પછી ધન કમાઓ. આથી ઊલટું કરવાની કોશિશ ન કરો. જો 
આધ્યાત્મિકતા પ્રાપ્ત કર્યા પછી તમે સાંસારિક જીવન ગાળશો તો તમે મનની શાંતિ કદી નહીં 
ગુમાવો.
-શ્રી રામકૃષ્ણ પરમહંસ

પાંડિત્ય પુસ્તક વાંચવામાં છે, પુસ્તક-સંગ્રહમાં નથી. શૌર્ય તલવાર વાપરવામાં છે, કેડે 
લટકાવવામાં નથી.
-કાકા કાલેલકર

જેની સિદ્ધિનો આધાર બીજા ઉપર છે, તેવું કર્મ કદી ન આરંભો. પણ જેની સિદ્ધિનો આધાર 
પોતાની જાત પર જ છે તે કર્મ અવશ્ય આરંભો.
-ભગવાન મનુ

બુરાઈ નાવમાં છિદ્ર સમાન છે, તે નાનું હોય કે મોટું, નાવને ડુબાડી દે છે.
-કવિ કાલીદાસ

મનુષ્ય કેવી રીતે મરે છે તે મહત્વનું નથી, પરંતુ તે કેવી રીતે જીવે છે તે મહત્વનું છે.
-હજરત અલી

મનુષ્યનું જીવન શ્રદ્ધા અને વિવેકથી ચાલે છે. વિવેક ન હોય, પરંતુ શ્રદ્ધા હોય તો બીજાના 
વિવેકથી લાભ ઉઠાવી શકાય છે. બીજાના વિવેકથી લાભ ઉઠાવવાની યોગ્યતાનું નામ શ્રદ્ધા 
છે.
-સ્વામી અખંડઆનંદ સરસ્વતી

જીવનમાં નિરંતર તાજગી અને અતૂટ દિલચસ્પી ત્યારે જ મળે છે કે જ્યારે આંતરિક વિકાસ 
નિરંતર થયો હોય.
-શ્રી અરવિંદ

જ્યાં સુધી લોકો પોતાને સ્વયં સુધારવાનો પ્રયત્ન નહીં કરે ત્યાં સુધી સુધારો થવો અસંભવ છે.
-કનૈયાલાલ મુનશી

જેણે ધન ભેગું કર્યું અને તેને ગણવામાં જ રહ્યો છે તે એવા ભ્રમમાં હોય છે કે ધન તેને જીવિત 
રાખશે.
-કુરાન

પોતાની આવશ્યકતાઓ ઓછી કરીને આપ વાસ્તવિક શાંતિ પ્રાપ્ત કરી શકો છો.
-મહાત્મા ગાંધી

કેળવણી બે પ્રકારની છે. એક કેળવણી માણસને માણસાઈનું ભાન કરાવે છે. બીજી કેળવણી 
માણસની માણસાઈ લઈ લે છે.
-સરદાર વલ્લભભાઈ પટેલ

સજા આપવાનો અધિકાર કેવળ પ્રેમ કરવાવાળાને જ છે !
-રવિન્દ્રનાથ ટાગોર

મનને હજાર પાંખ છે. હૃદયને એક જ પાંખ છે. છતાં જીવનનું સઘળું તેજ પ્રેમના અસ્ત સાથે 
વિલીન થઈ જાય છે.
-ફાન્સિસ બાઉડિર્ણાન

જેમ કાંટાળી ડાળને ફૂલ સુંદર બનાવી શકે છે તેમ સુશીલ સ્ત્રી ગરીબ માણસના ઘરને સુંદર અને 
સ્વચ્છ સ્વર્ગસમુ બનાવી શકે છે.
-યોગવસિષ્ઠ

પવિત્ર વિચારોનું સદા મનન કરવું જોઈએ અને હલકા સંસ્કારોને દૂર કરવા મથવું જોઈએ.
-સ્વામી વિવેકાનંદ

કવિતા એ બધા જ માનવીય જ્ઞાન, વિચાર, ભાવ, અનુભવ અને ભાષાની સુગંધ કળી છે.
-જયશંકર પ્રસાદ

માણસ, નિશ્ચિત આકાર અને ઈન્દ્રિયોના સમુહના સજીવ ઢીંગલા ઢીંગલી એ માણસ નહીં પણ 
પોતાના મૂળ સુધી પહોંચવાનો પ્રયત્ન કરી તેને ઓળખી, તેનો અહર્નિશ આભાર માનતાં જિવંત 
મંત્રો એ જ માણસ !
-ડૉ. ભરત મિસ્ત્રી

સાચુ બોલવાનો આગ્રહ રાખનાર માણસ બિલકુલ નિર્દોષ હોય તો પણ દુ:ખી થાય, એવો રુગ્ણ
સમાજ આપણે કહેવાતા ધર્મની ઓથે રચી બેઠા છીએ.
-ગુણવંત શાહ

દુનિયા આપણે માનીએ છીએ એટલી સાવ ખરાબ કે દુષ્ટ નથી. એ છે ત્યાંથી જલદી બહુ ઊંચે 
આવતી નથી, એટલી જ દુ:ખની વાત છે.
-કાકા કાલેલકર

સર્વ મનુષ્યોના અંતરમાં ઈશ્વરે જે બધાં સત્ય અને સૌંદર્ય મૂકેલાં છે, તેનું સતત દર્શન કવિતા
આપણને કરાવતી રહે છે.

130 when you legally can't go that fast on any road?

19.    If drink & drive is not allowed why the hell they have

******
==================
Work on this:
Don't think much
==================
Always Be the reason of someone's happiness
Never just a part of it

Be the part of someone's sadness..
Never the reason for it

Today before you think of saying an unkind word
Think of someone who can't speak

Before you complain about the taste of your food
Think of someone who has nothing to eat

Before you complain about your husband or wife
Think of someone who's crying out to God for a companion

Today before you complain about life
Think of someone who went too early to heaven

Before you complain about your children
Think of someone who desires children but they're barren

Before you argue about your dirty house; someone didn't clean 

or sweep
Think of the people who are living in the streets

And when you are tired and complain about your job
Think of the unemployed, the disabled and those who wished 

they had your
job

But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning 

another
Remember that not one of us are without sin and we all answer 

to one maker

And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down
Put a smile on your face and thank God you're alive and still 

around


Life is a gift...
Live it...
Enjoy it...
Celebrate it...
And fulfill it....

Man will occasionally stumble over the 

truth, but most of the time he will 

pick himself up and continue on.
- Winston Churchill.



I have always been impressed by the 

fact that there are a surprising 

number of individuals who never use 

their minds if they can avoid it,

and an equal number who do use their 

minds, but in an amazingly stupid way.
- Carl Jung.



If there is a sin against life, it 

consists perhaps not so much in 

despairing of life as in hoping for 

another life and in eluding the
implacable grandeur of this life.
- Albert Camus.



To be a philosopher is not merely to 

have subtle thoughts, nor even to 

found a school, but so to love wisdom 

as to live according to its
dictates a life of simplicity, 

independence, magnanimity and trust. 

It is to solve some of the problems of 

life, not only theoretically, but
practically.
- Henry David Thoreau.



All our philosophy is dry as dust if 

it is not immediately translated into

us are looking at the stars.

How shall I know if I do choose the 

right?
- William Shakespeare.



People say that what we’re all seeking 

is a meaning for life.  I don’t think 

that’s what we’re really seeking. I 

think that what we’re
seeking is an experience of being 

alive, so that our life experiences on 

the purely physical plane will have 

resonances within our own
innermost being and reality, so that 

we actually feel the rapture of being 

alive.
- Joseph Campbell.



Not a shred of evidence exists in 

favor of the idea that life is 

serious.
- Oscar Wilde.



God is a comedian playing to an 

audience too afraid to laugh.
- Voltaire.



Most of the luxuries, and many of the 

so called comforts of life, are not 

only not indispensable, but positive 

hindrances to the elevation
of mankind.
- Henry David Thoreau.



Perhaps it would be a good idea, 

fantastic as it sounds, to muffle 

every telephone, stop every motor, and 

halt all activity for an hour some
day, to give people a chance to ponder 

for a few minutes on what it is all 

about, why they are living and what 

they really want.
- James Truslow Adams.



Today, like every other day, we wake 

up empty and frightened.  
Don’t open the door to the study and 

begin reading.  
Take down a musical instrument.
Let the beauty we love be what we do.
There are hundreds of ways to kneel 

and kiss the ground.
- Rumi.



Everything that is really great and 

inspiring is created by the individual 

who can labor in freedom.

living?
Where is the wisdom we have lost in

Where is the knowledge we have lost in

centuries
Bring us farther from God and nearer 

to the Dust.
- T. S. Eliot.

Twenty years from now you will be more 

disappointed by the things that you 

didn't do than by the ones you did do. 

So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch 

the trade winds in your sails. 

Explore. Dream. Discover.
- Mark Twain.



And forget not that the earth delights 

to feel your bare feet and the winds 

long to play with your hair.
- Kahlil Gibran.



Besides the noble art of getting 

things done, there is the noble art of 

leaving things undone. The wisdom of 

life consists in the
elimination of the nonessentials.
- Lin Yutang.



Whenever suffering happens, don't 

collect it. Allow it to happen, but 

don't nourish it. Why go on talking 

about it? Everyone talks about his
suffering. Why is there so much 

emphasis on it? Why give so much 

attention to it? Remember one of the 

laws: that whatsoever you pay much
attention to grows. Attention is a 

growth helping element. If you pay 

attention to something, it grows more.
- Osho.



What lies behind us and what lies 

before us are tiny matters compared to 

what lies within us.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson.



People are always blaming their 

circumstances for what they are. I

the people who get up and look for the 

circumstances they want and if they 

can't find them, make them.
- George Bernard Shaw.



To love oneself is the beginning of a 

lifetime romance.

over and over again in my life... And 

that is why I succeed.  
- Michael Jordan.



It's not that I'm so smart , it's just 

that I stay with problems longer.
- Albert Einstein.



In the long run, you hit only what you 

aim at: Therefore aim high.
- Henry David Thoreau.



Maturity has nothing to do with your 

life experiences. It has something to 

do with your inward journey, your 

experiences of the inner. The
more a man goes deeper into himself 

the more mature he is. When he has 

reached the very center of his being 

he is perfectly mature. But at
that moment the person disappears, 

only presence remains. The self 

disappears, only silence remains. 


Knowledge disappears, only innocence
remains.
- Osho.



If one recognises the selfish motives 

which underlie all human conduct, one 

has not the slightest desire to 

return. Life, moving in a
circle, would still be the same. As 

far as I am concerned, I am perfectly 

content to know that the eternal 

nuisance of living will be
finally done with. Our life is 

necessarily a series of compromises, a 

never-ending struggle between the ego 

and his environment. The wish to
prolong life unduly, strikes me as 

absurd.
- Sigmund Freud.



And in the end it's not the years in 

your life that count. It's the life in 

your years.
- Abraham Lincoln.



I have discovered that all human evil 

comes from this, man's being unable to 

sit still in a room.
- Blaise Pascal.



The life which is unexamined is not 

worth living.
- Plato



You cannot depend on your eyes when 

your imagination is out of focus.
- Mark Twain



No matter who you are, however 

powerful you may be, outer situations 

of life will not always be under your 

control. Living in fear that you
are a slave to external situations 

becomes torturous because anticipating 

what will happen threatens your peace 

of mind. Yoga is the process
of restoring peace and happiness, 

which are basic to human nature. 

Everyone has the intelligence to 

choose to be joyful. But they are not
naturally happy because the life 

energy is happening unconsciously and 

Yoga is the science of making the life 

energy function consciously—
to become the master of your destiny.
- Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev.




For the total development of the human 

being, solitude as a means of 

cultivating sensitivity becomes a 

necessity. One has to know what it
means to be alone, what it is to 

meditate, what it is to die; and the 

implications of solitude, of 

meditation, of death, can be known 

only
by seeking them out. These 

implications cannot be taught, they 

must be learnt. One can indicate, but 

learning by what is indicated is not
the experiencing of solitude or 

meditation. To experience what is 

solitude and what is meditation, one 

must be in a state of inquiry; only a
mind that is in a state of inquiry is 

capable of learning. But when inquiry 

is suppressed by previous knowledge, 

or by the authority and
experience of another, then learning 

becomes mere imitation, and imitation 

causes a human being to repeat what is 

learnt without
experiencing it.
- J. Krishnamurti.



The twentieth century was about 

speeding and scaling up… the twenty-

first century will almost certainly 

have to be about slowing down.
- Anonymous.



Only the empty can be filled; if I 

have nothing, I am rich.
How can I learn what it is to have 

nothing?
I am so full; nothing cannot enter.
Desires and imaginations, convictions 

and opinions, habits and reflexes, I 

cannot even contain them.
They drip and exude from me, they slop 

over me, leaving a trail; wherever I 

go I leave a trail of arguments and 

contradictions, of requests
and insinuations, pouring my 

imagination over life, masking it, 

covering it with my own projection of 

myself.
O to be sensitive; O to receive 

impressions instead of blocking their 

inflow with my desire to impress.
Stop. Be quiet.
Stand aside and watch. This is the 

secret.
Your voice is loud in argument; 

listen, no more.
Your brain is hot with indignation; 

feel it, no more.
Your hands reach out in desire; see 

them, no more.
They are your voice, your brain, your 

hands, not you.
It is they that are full, not you.
Only the empty can be filled; If I 

have nothing, I am rich.
- Anonymous.



Do not seek to follow the footsteps of 

the wise. Seek what they sought.
- Basho.



The only thing that interferes with my 

learning is my education.
- Albert Einstein.



Too lazy to be ambitious, I let the 

world take care of itself.
Ten days worth of rice in my bag; a 

bundle of twigs by the fireplace.
Why chatter about delusion and 

enlightenment?
Listening to the night rain on my 

roof, I sit comfortably, with both 

legs stretched out.
- Ryokan.



To hold and fill to overflowing is not 

as good as to stop in time. Sharpen a 

sword-edge to its very sharpest, And 

the edge will not last
long . . . Withdraw as soon as your 

work is done. Such is Heaven's Way.
- Lao Tzu.



To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-

morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to 

day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted 

fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, 

brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor 

player
That struts and frets his hour upon 

the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a 

tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and 

fury,
Signifying nothing.
- William Shakespeare.

==================
Stress management: 
Understand your sources of stress
=================================
The kids are screaming, the bills are 

due and there's a pile of work on your 

desk that's growing at an absurdly 

swift pace. It's undeniable — life 

often seems full of stress. But 

understanding the types and sources of 

stress — big and small, short-term and 

long-term, internal and external — is 

an important part of stress 

management. So where does your stress 

come from?
Two main types of stress

Stress is your body's reaction to the 

demands of the world, and stressors 

are events or conditions in your 

surroundings that may trigger stress. 

Two main types of stress you face are:

    * Acute stress. Also known as the 

fight-or-flight response, acute stress 

is your body's immediate reaction to a 

significant threat, challenge or 

scare. The acute-stress response is 

immediate, it's intense, and in 

certain circumstances, it can be 

thrilling. Examples of stressors that 

may cause an acute-stress response are 

a job interview, a fender bender or an 

exhilarating ski run.
    * Chronic stress. This results 

from long-term exposure to acute 

stress. The chronic-stress response is 

much more subtle than is the acute-

stress response, but the effects may 

be longer lasting and more 

problematic. The stressors that may 

lead to chronic stress are the 

nagging, day-to-day life situations 

that often seem unrelenting. This 

includes relationship problems, work 

difficulties and financial woes. 

Effective stress management involves 

identifying and managing both acute 

and chronic stress.
Symptoms of stress

While mild stress can actually be 

beneficial — it can spur you into 

action, motivate and energize you — 

it's often the buildup of the little 

things that can really "stress you 

out." Persistent stress can lead to 

many adverse health problems, 

including:

    * Physical symptoms, such as 

headache and fatigue
    * Mental symptoms, such as poor 

concentration
    * Emotional symptoms, such as 

irritability and depression
    * Social symptoms, such as 

isolation and resentment 

Know your stressors

External exasperations
External stressors are events and 

situations that happen to you. While 

you may have control over some of 

these stressors and how much you let 

them affect you, there are times when 

they extend beyond your control. Some 

examples include:

    * Major life changes. These 

changes can be positive — a new 

marriage, a planned pregnancy, a 

promotion or a new house. Or they can 

be negative — the death of a loved one 

or going through a divorce.
    * Environment. These stressors 

could include a noise disturbance, 

such as a barking dog, or excessive 

light, as from a billboard across the 

street.
    * Unpredictable events. This 

category could include an increase in 

monthly bills, an uninvited houseguest 

or a pay cut.
    * Family. The occasional spousal 

spat, a teenager who refuses to 

cooperate or a nagging mother-in-law 

can all contribute to stress.
    * Workplace. Perhaps an 

overwhelming workload or an impossible 

boss.
    * Social. For example, a blind 

date or making a speech to a room full 

of co-workers. 

Internal irritations
Not all stress stems from things that 

happen to you. Some of the stress 

response can be self-induced. Those 

feelings and thoughts that pop into 

your head and cause you unrest are 

known as internal stressors. Examples 

include:

    * Fears. These can be things, such 

as a fear of flying or heights, or 

more-subtle apprehensions such as 

participating in a discussion with a 

group of strangers at a meeting.
    * Uncertainty. Stemming perhaps 

from a looming restructuring at the 

office or waiting for medical test 

results.
    * Attitude. Having a negative view 

of the world can be stressful, since 

you create an unpleasant environment 

in which to live.
    * Unrealistic expectations. A 

perfectionist or controlling 

personality may lead to unnecessarily 

high stress levels. Overscheduling and 

not planning ahead can lead to 

worries. 

Stress is here to stay

Not a day in your life goes by without 

encountering a situation or event that 

may trigger stress. And that's OK. By 

identifying and understanding the 

sources of your stress, you learn to 

better manage it. So what stresses you 

out?

   Egg peeling off: Make a small hole in the egg by piercing a pin before boiling it. You will be able to remove its skin very easily.

   Egg fresh: Immerse the egg in a pan of cool salted water. If it sinks, it is fresh; if it rises to the surface, it is certainly quite old.

   Garlic: Garlic skin comes off easily if the garlic cloves are slightly warmed before peeling.

   Ghee: Avoid the use of ghee. If it is necessary, substitute it with canola oil. Even for making halwa, you can partly substitute it with oil.

   Green Chillies: To keep the chillies fresh for a longer time, remove the stems before storing.

   Green Peas: To preserve green peas, keep them in a polythene bag in the freezer.

   Idlies: Place a betel (paan) leaf over the leftover idli and dosa batter to prevent them sour.
Do not beat idli batter too much, the air which has been incorporated during fermentation will escape.
If you add half a tsp of fenugreek seeds to the lentil and rice mixture while soaking, dosas will be more crisp.
 

   Fruits: To ripen fruits, wrap them in newspaper and put in a warm place for 2-3 days. The ethylene gas they emit will make them ripe.

   Frying: Avoid deep frying. Substitute deep frying with stir frying or oven bake. Don't pour the oil, but make a habit of spraying the oil in the utensil for cooking. Heat the utensil first, then add oil. This way oil spreads well. You will use less oil this way.

   Left Over: Don't throw away the foods left over. Store them in Fridge. Use them in making tasty dishes.

   Lemon/Lime: If the lemon or lime is hard, put it in warm water for 5-10 minutes to make it easier to squeeze.

   Lizards: Hang a peacock feather, lizards will leave your house.

   Milk: Moisten the base of the vessel with water to reduce the chances of milk to stick at the bottom.
Keep a spoon in the vessel while boiling milk at medium heat. It will avoid sticking the milk at the bottom of the vessel.
Adding half a tsp of sodium bicarbonate in the milk while boiling will not spoil the milk even if you don't put it in the fridge.

   Mixer/Grinder: Grind some common salt in your mixer/grinder fro some time every month. This will keep your mixer blades sharp.

   Mosquitoes: Put a few camphor tablets in a cup of water and keep it in the bed room near your bed, or in any place with mosquitoes.

   Noodles: When the noodles are boiled, drain all the hot water and add cold water. This way all the noodles will get separated.

   Onions: To avoid crying, cut the onions into two parts and place them in water for 15 minutes before chopping them.
Wrap the onions individually in a newspaper and store in a cool and dark place to keep them fresh for long time.

   Oven: Watch from the oven window to conserve energy because the
oven temperature drops by 25 degrees every time its door is opened,
To clean the oven, apply a paste of sodium bicarbonate and water on the walls and floor of the oven and keep the oven on low heat for about half an hour. Dried food can easily be removed.

   Paneer: To keep paneer fresh for several days, wrap it in a blotting paper while storing in the refrigerator.
Do not fry paneer, immerse it in boiling water to make it soft and spongy.

   Papad: Bake in microwave oven.
Wrap the papads in polythene sheet and place with dal or rice will prevent them from drying and breaking.

   Pickles: To prevent the growth of fungus in pickles, burn a small grain of asafoetida over a burning coal and invert the empty pickle jar for some time before putting pickles in the jar.

   Popcorn: Keep the maize/corn seeds in the freezer and pop while still frozen to get better pops.

   Potato: To bake potatoes quickly, place them in salt water for 15 minutes before baking.
Use the skin of boiled potatoes to wipe mirrors to sparkling clean.
Don't store potatoes and onions together. Potatoes will rot quickly if stored with onions.

   Refrigerator: To prevent formation of ice, rub table salt to the insides of your freeze.

   Rice: Add a few drops of lemon juice in the water before boiling the rice to make rice whiter.
Add a tsp of canola oil in the water before boiling the rice to separate each grain after cooking.
Don't throw away the rice water after cooking. Use it to make soup or add it in making dal (lentils).
Add 5g of dried powdered mint leaves to 1kg of rice. It will keep insects at bay.
Put a small paper packet of boric powder in the container of rice to keep insects at bay. Put a few leaves of mint in the container of rice to keep insects at bay.
 

   Samosa: Bake them instead of deep frying to make them fat free. Don't fry the filling potato masala.
Preserve the samosas in freezer. For eating, take out of the freezer two hours in advance and bake them over low temp.

   Sugar: Put 2-3 cloves in the sugar to keep ants at bay.

   Tadka: Use sprouted mustard seeds (rayee) and fenugreek (methi) seeds for your tadkas. Both of them when sprouted have more nutritional values. Also this add flavour to the dish and can be more beneficial, besides giving decorative look to the dish. Submitted by MS Itisha Madhav 

   Tomato: To remove the skin of tomatoes, place them in warm water for 5-10 minutes. The skin can then be easily peeled off.
When tomatoes are not available or too costly, substitute with tomato puree or tomato ketchup/sauce.
Place overripe tomatoes in cold water and add some salt. Overnight they will become firm and fresh.

   Tamarind: Tamarind is an excellent polish for brass and copper items. Rub a slab of wet tamarind with some salt sprinkled on it on the object to be polished.
Gargles with tamarind water is recommended for a sore throat.

   Utensils: Use nonsticking utensils. Use thick bottom utensils, they get uniformly heated. For electric stoves, use flat bottom utensils.
Add a little bit of common salt to the washing powder for better cleaning of utensils.

   Vegetables: Don't discard the water in which the vegetables are soaked or cooked. Use it in making soup or gravy.
To keep the vegetables fresh for a longer time, wrap them in newspaper before putting them in freeze.
Chop the vegetables only when you are ready to use them. Don't cut them in too advance. It would spoil their food value.

   Sink (Blocked): To clear the blocked drain pipe of your kitchen sink, mix 1/2 cup sodium bicarbonate in 1 cup
vinegar and pour it into the sink, and pour about 1 cup water. In an hour the drain pipe will open.

   Soup Salty: Place a raw peeled potato in the bowl, it will absorb the extra salt.

   Yoghurt (Home Made): To set
yogurt in winter, place the container in a warm place like oven or over the voltage stabliser.
   Yogurt: If the yogurt has become sour, put it in a muslin cloth and drain all the water. Then add milk to make it as good as fresh in taste. Use the drained water in making tasty gravy for vegetables or for basen curry.
To keep the yogurt fresh for many days, fill the vessel containing yogurt with water to the brim and refrigerate. Change the water daily..

The 10 Top American Givers
by Aili McConnon and Lawrence Delevingne
Thursday, November 27, 2008
provided byBusinessWeek
==========================

Warren Buffett

Many of America's ultra-rich continued to give big donations to charity in 2008, despite the worst financial crisis in decades. In the past year, seven philanthropists gave north of $200 million and nine gave more than $100 million to causes ranging from wilderness preservation to fighting malaria. Warren Buffett and Bill Gates remain far and away the biggest givers overall, but two of 12 newcomers to the list pledged to give more than $1 billion away: William Barron Hilton, co-chairman of the Hilton hotel chain who pledged late last year to give away 97% of his wealth -- some $1.7 billion -- to his family's humanitarian foundation and Peter G. Peterson, co-founder of the investment firm Blackstone Group, who gave $1 billion this year to establish a foundation that promotes fiscal responsibility. Read their stories -- and those of the 48 other philanthropists on BusinessWeek's list -- here.

1. Warren Buffett

Berkshire Hathaway CEO
2004-08 Giving* $40,655 million

Buffett's $31 billion commitment to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, announced in June 2006, resonated throughout the philanthropic community. The giving is aimed at funding education and global health initiatives. This year the commitment to the Gates Foundation still resonates, inspiring other donors with a new model of philanthropy. Buffett, the world's second-richest man, also earmarked billions for the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation, the Howard G. Buffett Foundation, and the NoVo Foundation -- independent family foundations that support causes ranging from reproductive health to worldwide conservation.

2. Bill & Melinda Gates

Microsoft co-founder
2004-08 Giving* $2,625 million

Bill and Melinda Gates give through their massive Seattle-based family foundation, which says it is "committed to ensuring all people have the opportunity to lead healthy, productive lives." With an endowment of nearly $36 billion, the foundation works with partners to give people a chance to lift themselves out of hunger and extreme poverty in developing countries and, in the U.S., to ensure that all people have the opportunities they need to succeed in school and life. Its endowment is eventually expected to double, thanks to a long-term $31 billion gift from investor Warren Buffett, which pays out in installments. Recent initiatives include $100 million in micro medical-research grants; a $164 million grant to the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa; and $125 million to fight global tobacco use as part of a $500 million partnership with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

3. George Kaiser

Oil and gas, banking, investments
2004-08 Giving* $2,377 million

Kaiser's focus remains on early intervention in the cycle of poverty. Giving through his Tulsa-based foundation provides services that include early childhood education, pre-natal health care, public health, in-home parenting, and secondary education, as well as more generalized safety net services that deal with the symptoms of poverty. More recent initiatives have focused on women's incarceration, secondary schools, and reserving land to create an arts and entertainment district in Tulsa. The biggest payout may be yet to come: Kaiser has said he plans to increase his gifts "until I die with one dollar left, assuming I can get the timing just right."

4. George Soros

Investor
2004-08 Giving* $2,214 million

Soros distributes $400 million or more each year through his charitable network, which aims to foster open and democratic societies around the world. This year Soros gave some $535 million to dozens of initiatives, including education in Liberia, microfinance in India, and mental health in Moldova. In 2005 he gave an extra $200 million for his Central European University, a graduate school he helped found in Budapest in 1991. An immigrant from Hungary who made his first billion dollars in England, Soros has given nearly $7 billion to support his network of foundations in more than 60 countries.

5. William Barron Hilton

Heir and former CEO of Hilton Hotels
2004-08 Giving* $1,700 million

New to list Following in his father's footsteps, Hilton late last year announced his intention to leave 97% of his wealth to charity after his stakes in Hilton Hotels and Harrah's Entertainment were bought out by private equity groups for billions. Hilton's fortune will go to his family's foundation, the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, which works to alleviate the suffering of the world's most disadvantaged, with an emphasis on children and support for the work of Roman Catholic nuns. Grants go to causes such as stopping trachoma, the world's leading cause of preventable blindness in Africa; helping homeless families in the U.S.; and providing clean water in Mexico.

6. Walton Family

Family of Wal-Mart founder

2004-08 Giving* $1,380 million

The world's richest family is also one of the most united when it comes to philanthropy. The secretive Waltons commit the bulk of their gifts through the Walton Family Foundation, which supports a variety of charitable causes. Their areas of focus: K-12 education reform, quality-of-life initiatives in northwest Arkansas (home to Wal-Mart), economic development initiatives in the Mississippi Delta region of the U.S., and most recently, marine and fresh water fishing sustainability initiatives.

For more, visit the Walton Family Foundation.

7. Herbert & Marion Sandler

Golden West Financial co-founders
2004-08 Giving* $1,329 million

The Sandlers have given away more than $1 billion to the Sandler Foundation, which works to strengthen progressive causes, such as: exposing corruption and abuse of power; advocating for vulnerable and exploited people and environments; and advancing scientific research. Last year, for example, the foundation committed $10 million a year to launch and sustain ProPublica, an independent non-profit newsroom, under the leadership of former Wall Street Journal Managing Editor Paul Steiger, that produces investigative journalism in the public interest. The foundation also helped establish the liberal think-tank Center for American Progress with a $50 million gift in 2004.

For more, visit the Sandler Foundation.

8. Peter Peterson

Blackstone Group co-founder
2004-08 Giving* $1,168 million

New to list Using his proceeds from Blackstone Group's IPO, Peterson donated $1 billion to establish the Peter G. Peterson Foundation this year. The focus: to encourage greater fiscal responsibility in the U.S. The foundation has already purchased, promoted, and distributed the documentary I.O.U.S.A. to educate Americans about swelling national and personal debt. (The film is likened by many to Al Gore's documentary on global warming, An Inconvenient Truth.) The former Commerce Secretary's timing was uncanny as the financial crisis underscored his urgent message about excessive spending.

Significance of "108"
===================== 
It is the practice in every calculation and transaction of the 
currency or any thing to 
round off the figure to one, by removing the decimals and also to
ten, hundred and thousand so on.  But in every pooja, we worship 
God/Goddess in 108 names 
which we call it as �Ashtottara�..  Why not 100 a round figure?
If we go deep into its significance:
 
The Indian Subcontinent rosary or set of mantra counting has 108 
beads. 108 has been a 
sacred number in the Indian Subcontinent for a very long time. This
number is explained in many different ways.
 
The ancient Indians were excellent mathematicians and 108 may be 
the product of a 
precise mathematical operation (e.g. 1 power 1 x 2 power 2 x 3 powers
3 = 108) which was thought to have special numerological significance.
 
Powers of 1, 2, and 3 in math: 1 to 1st power=1; 
2 to 2nd power=4 (2x2); 3 to 3rd 
power=27 (3x3x3). 1x4x27=108
 
Sanskrit alphabet: There are 54 letters in the Sanskrit 
alphabet. Each has masculine 
and feminine, Siva and Sakti. 54 times 2 are 108.
 
Sri Yantra: On the Sri Yantra there is marmas where three 
lines intersect, and there 
are 54 such intersections. Each intersection has masculine
 and feminine,
Siva and Sakti qualities. 54 x 2 equals 108. Thus, there 
are 108 points that define the 
Sri yantra as well as the human body.
 
9 times 12: Both of these numbers have been said to have 
spiritual significance in many 
traditions. 9 times 12 is 108. Also, 1 plus 8 equals 9. 
That 9 times
x 12 equals 108.
 
Heart Chakra: The chakras are the intersections of energy 
lines, and there are said to be 
a total of 108 energy lines converging to form the heart 
chakra.
One of them, sushumna leads to the crown chakra, and is 
said to be the path to Self-realization.
 
Marmas: Marmas or marmastanas are like energy intersections
 called chakras, except have fewer 
energy lines converging to form them. There are said to be
108 marmas in the subtle body.
 
Time: Some say there are 108 feelings, with 36 related to 
the past, 36 related to the present, 
and 36 related to the future.
 
Astrology: There are 12 constellations, and 9 arc segments 
called namshas or chandrakalas. 
9 times 12 equal 108. Chandra is moon, and kalasa are the
 divisions
within a whole.
 
Planets and Houses: In astrology, there are 12 houses and 
9 planets. 12 times 9 equal 108.
 
1, 0, and 8: 1 stands for God or higher Truth, 0 stands for
 emptiness or completeness in 
spiritual practice, and 8 stands for infinity or eternity.
 
Sun and Earth: The diameter of the sun is 108 times the 
diameter of the Earth.
 
Numerical scale: The 1 of 108, and the 8 of 108, when 
added together equals 9, which is the 
number of the numerical scale, i.e. 1, 2, 3 ... 10, etc.,
 where
0 is not a number.
 
Smaller divisions: The number 108 is divided, such as in 
half, third, quarter, or twelfth, 
so that some malas have 54, 36, 27, or 9 beads.
 
Islam: The number 108 is used in Islam to refer to God.
 
Jain: In the Jain religion, 108 are the combined virtues 
of five categories of holy ones, 
including 12, 8, 36, 25, and 27 virtues respectively.

16 things it took me 
over 50 years to learn:
By:Dave Barry, 
Nationally Syndicated Columnist
========================= 

1. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on
the same night.
 
2. If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has
not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be
'meetings.'
 
3. There is a very fine line between 'hobby' and 'mental illness.'
 
4. People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want
you to share yours with them.
 
5. You should not confuse your career with your life.
 
6. Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.
 
7. Never lick a steak knife.
 
8. The most destructive force in the universe is gossip.
 
9. You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling
reason why we observe daylight savings time.
 
10. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests
that you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging
from her at that moment.
 
11. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a
big deal about your birthday. That time is age 11.
 
12. The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender,
religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside,
we ALL believe that we are above average drivers.
 
13. A person, who is nice to you, but rude to a waiter, is not a nice
person.
 

14. Your friends love you anyway.
 
15. Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur built
the Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.
 
16. Thought for the day: Men are like fine wine. They start out as grapes;
and it's up to the women to stomp the crap out of them until they turn into
something acceptable to have dinner with.

          GREAT INDIANS
          =============

                ARYABHATT
                (476 CE) MASTER ASTRONOMER AND MATHEMATICIAN
               
                Born in 476 CE in Kusumpur (Bihar), Aryabhatt's intellectual 
brilliance remapped the boundaries of mathematics and astronomy. In 499 CE, 
at the age of 23, he wrote a text on astronomy and an unparallel treatise on 
mathematics called 'Aryabhatiyam. ' He formulated the process of calculating 
the motion of planets and the time of eclipses. Aryabhatt was the first to 
proclaim that the earth is round, it rotates on its axis, orbits the sun and 
is suspended in space - 1000 years before Copernicus published his heliocentric 
theory. He is also acknowledged for calculating p (Pi) to four decimal places: 
3.1416 and the sine table in trigonometry. Centuries later, in 825 CE, the Arab 
mathematician, Mohammed Ibna Musa credited the value of Pi to the Indians, 
'This value has been given by the Hindus.' And above all, his most spectacular 
contribution was the concept of zero without which modern computer technology 
would have been non-existent. Aryabhatt was a colossus in the field of mathematics.

                BHASKARACHARYA II
                
                GENIUS IN ALGEBRA
                Born in the obscure village of Vijjadit (Jalgaon) in Maharastra, 
Bhaskaracharya' s work in Algebra, Arithmetic and Geometry catapulted him to fame 
and immortality. His renowned mathematical works called 'Lilavati' and 'Bijaganita' 
are considered to be unparalled and a memorial to his profound intelligence. Its 
translation in several languages of the world bear testimony to its eminence. 
In his treatise 'Siddhant Shiromani' he writes on planetary positions, eclipses, 
cosmography, mathematical techniques and astronomical equipment. In the 'Surya 
Siddhant' he makes a note on the force of gravity: 'Objects fall on earth due 
to a force of attraction by the earth. Therefore, the earth, planets, constellations, 
moon, and sun are held in orbit due to this attraction.' Bhaskaracharya was the first 
to discover gravity, 500 years before Sir Isaac Newton. He was the champion among 
mathematicians of ancient and medieval India. His works fired the imagination of 
Persian and European scholars, who through research on his works earned fame and 
popularity.

                ACHARYA KANAD
                
                FOUNDER OF ATOMIC THEORY
                As the founder of 'Vaisheshik Darshan'- one of six principal 
philosophies of India - Acharya Kanad was a genius in philosophy. He is believed 
to have been born in Prabhas Kshetra near Dwarika in Gujarat. He was the pioneer
 expounder of realism, law of causation and the atomic theory. He has classified 
all the objects of creation into nine elements, namely: earth, water, light, wind,
 ether, time, space, mind and soul. He says, 'Every object of creation is made 
of atoms which in turn connect with each other to form molecules.' His statement 
ushered in the Atomic Theory for the first time ever in the world, nearly 2500 
years before John Dalton.. Kanad has also described the dimension and motion of 
atoms and their chemical reactions with each other. The eminent historian, T.N. 
Colebrook, has said, 'Compared to the scientists of Europe, Kanad and other
 Indian scientists were the global masters of this field.'

                NAGARJUNA (100 CE)
                
                WIZARD OF CHEMICAL SCIENCE
                He was an extraordinary wizard of science born in the nondescript
 village of Baluka in Madhya Pradesh. His dedicated research for twelve years 
produced maiden discoveries and inventions in the faculties of chemistry and
 metallurgy. Textual masterpieces like 'Ras Ratnakar,' 'Rashrudaya' and 
'Rasendramangal' are his renowned contributions to the science of chemistry. 
Where the medieval alchemists of England failed, Nagarjuna had discovered the
 alchemy of transmuting base metals into gold. As the author of medical books 
like 'Arogyamanjari' and 'Yogasar,' he also made significant contributions to
 the field of curative medicine. Because of his profound scholarliness and 
versatile knowledge, he was appointed as Chancellor of the famous University 
of Nalanda. Nagarjuna's milestone discoveries impress and astonish the scientists 
of today.

SUNDAY HOLY HUMOUR.      
===================
A father was approached by his small son who told him proudly,
'I know what the Bible means!'
His father smiled and replied, 'What do you mean, you 'know'
What the Bible means?
The son replied, 'I do know!'
'Okay,' said his father. 'What does the Bible mean?'
'That's easy, Daddy...' the young boy replied excitedly,' It stands for 
'Basic Information Before Leaving Earth.' 
=======
There was a very gracious lady who was mailing an old family Bible to her
 brother in another part of the country.
'Is there anything breakable in here?' asked the postal clerk.
'Only the Ten Commandments. ' answered the lady.

========
'Somebody has said there are only two kinds of people in the world.
There are those who wake up in the morning and say, 'Good morning, Lord,'
 and there are those who wake up in the morning and say, 'Good Lord, it's 
morning.'
 ========
A minister parked his car in a no-parking zone in a large city because he
 was short of time and couldn't find a space with a meter.
Then, he put a note under the windshield wiper that read: 'I have circled 
the block 10 times. If I don't park here, I'll miss my appointment. Forgive 
us our trespasses.'
When he returned, he found a citation from a police officer along with this 
note  'I've circled this block for 10 years. If I don't give you a ticket  
I'll lose my job. Lead us not into temptation.'
========
There is the story of a pastor who got up one Sunday and announced to his 
congregation: 'I have good news and bad news. The good news is, we have 
enough money to pay for our new building program. The bad news is, it's
 still out there in your pockets.'
========
While driving in Pennsylvania, a family caught up to an Amish carriage.
The owner of the carriage obviously had a sense of humour, because attached 
to the back of the carriage was a hand printed sign... 'Energy efficient
 vehicle: Runs on oats and grass.
Caution: Do not step in exhaust.'
 ========
A minister waited in line to have his car filled with gas just before a 
long holiday weekend. The attendant worked quickly, but there were many
 cars ahead of him. Finally, the attendant motioned him toward a vacant pump.
'Reverend,' said the young man, 'I'm so sorry about the delay. It seems 
as if everyone waits until the last minute to get ready for a long trip.'
The minister chuckled, 'I know what you mean. It's the same in my business.'
========
People want the front of the bus, The back of the church, And The centre 
of attention.
 ========
Sunday after church, a Mom asked her very young daughter what the lesson 
was about.
The daughter answered, 'Don't be scared, you'll get your quilt.' Needless 
to say, the Mom was perplexed. Later in the day, the pastor stopped by for
 tea and the Mom asked him what that morning's Sunday school lesson was 
about. He said, 'Be not afraid, thy comforter is coming.'
========
The minister (in Canada) was preoccupied with thoughts of how he was going 
to ask the congregation to come up with more money than they were 
expecting for repairs to the church building. Therefore, he was annoyed 
to find that the regular organist was sick and a substitute had been 
brought in at the last minute. The substitute wanted to know what to 
play.
'Here's a copy of the service,' he said impatiently. 'But, you'll have
 to think of something to play after I make the announcement about the 
finances.'
During the service, the minister paused and said, 'Brothers and Sisters,
 we are in great difficulty; the roof repairs cost twice as much as we
 expected and we need $4,000 more. Any of you who can pledge $100 or more,
 please stand up.'
At that moment, the substitute organist played, 'O Canada.'
And that is how the substitute became the regular organist!

Pre-marital Love
 
We were in long nine months before our marriage.
 
One day my wife asked - "You don't love me as you did before our marriage."
 
I replied - "I don't like to continue the pre-marital affairs."
 
Beautiful Woman
 
The man approached a very beautiful woman in a large supermarket
 and asked, "You know, I've lost my wife here in the supermarket. 
Can you talk to me for
 
a couple of minutes?"
 
"Why?" she asks.
 
"Because every time I talk to a a beautiful woman, my wife appears out of nowhere."
 
Marrige Cost
 
A little boy asked his father, "Daddy, how much does it cost to get married?"
 
And the father replied, "I don't know son, I'm still paying."
 
Wishful Thinking
 
A wife went to the police station with her next-door neighbor to 
report that her husband was missing.
 
The policeman asked for a description. She said, "He's 35 years 

old, 6 foot 4, has dark eyes, dark wavy hair, an athletic build, weighs 185 pounds, is
 
soft-spoken, and is good to the children."
 
The next-door neighbour protested, "Your husband is 5 foot 4, chubby, 
bald, has a big mouth, and is mean to your children." The wife replied, 
"Yes, but
 
who wants HIM back?".

“IIT = Harvard + MIT + Princeton” 

“IIT = Harvard + MIT + Princeton” , says CBS ‘60 Minutes’.  

CBS' highly-regarded ‘60 Minutes’, the most widely watched news 
programme in the US, told its audience of more than 10 Million viewers 
that “IIT may be the most important university you've never heard of." 

"The United States imports oil from Saudi Arabia, cars from Japan, TVs
 from Korea and Whiskey from Scotland. So what do we import from India? 
We import people, really smart people," co-host Leslie Stahl began while
 introducing the segment on IIT. 
 
“…the smartest, the most successful, most influential Indians who've 
migrated to the US seem to share a common credential: They are graduates 
of the IIT.” 

“…in science and technology, IIT undergraduates leave their American 
counterparts in the dust.“ 

“Think about that for a minute: A kid from India using an Ivy League 
university as a safety school. That's how smart these guys are.” 

There are “cases where students who couldn't get into computer science
 at IIT, they have gotten scholarships at MIT, at Princeton, at Caltech.”

Science of Yoga 

“…The science of yoga was born in an age when mankind as a whole was
 more enlightened, and could easily grasp truths for which our most advanced 
thinkers are still grasping.” 

The science of yoga meditation had been taught by the ancient, sages, gurus,
 yogis, through oral tradition for thousands of years, they were finally put
 to Sanskrit by Patanjali in 500 b.c.  

“…It is because the groping for these truths has begun again that great 
yogis have reintroduced this ancient science to humanity at large.” 

Pre-eminent among them, even today, are the sages of the Himalayas. 

Today, the word yoga is much used and much misunderstood these days,

reduced from its knowledge on the control of the conscious to that of the 
control of the body.
 
 
 
 
 

Indians of note
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Rabindranath Tagore,

Poet and writer of India’s national anthem and Nobel Prize for
 Literature in 1913,

(1861­1941): 

"Oneness amongst men, the advancement of unity in diversity – 
this has been the core religion of India.“
 
 
 
 
 

Swami Vivekananda,

(1863-1902): 

“I am proud to belong to a religion which has taught the world 
both tolerance and universal acceptance.  

We believe not only in universal toleration, but we accept all 
religions as true.  

I am proud to belong to a nation which has sheltered the persecuted
 and the refugees of all religions and all nations of the earth.  

I am proud to tell you that we have gathered in our bosom the purest 
remnant of the Israelites, who came to Southern India and took refuge
 with us in the very year in which their holy temple was shattered to 
pieces by Roman tyranny.  

I am proud to belong to the religion which has sheltered and is still
 fostering the remnant of the grand Zoroastrian nation.  

I will quote to you, brethren, a few lines from a hymn which I 
remember to have repeated from my earliest boyhood, which is every 
day repeated by millions of human beings: ‘As the different streams 
having their sources in different paths which men take through 
different tendencies, various though they appear, crooked or 
straight, all lead to Thee.’ ”
 
 
 
 
 

Sri Aurobindo,

(1872-1950): 
 

“…Like the majority of educated Indians, I have passively
 accepted without examination, the conclusion of European 
scholarship.” 

“…That we turn always the few distinct truths and the 
symbols or the particular discipline of a religion into a 
hard and fast dogmas, is a sign that as yet we are only 
infants in the spiritual knowledge and are yet far from
 the science of the Infinite.” 

"...The mind is not the highest possible power of consciousness;
 for mind is not in possession of Truth, but only its ignorant 
seeker.”
 
 
 
 
 

Mahatma Gandhi

(1869-1948):

 

Gandhi was once asked what he thought about Western Civilization.
 His response was: "I think it would be a good idea.” 

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged 
by the way its animals are treated.“ 

“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if
 a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become 
dirty.” 

“The only devils in this world are those running around inside
 our own hearts, and that is where all our battles should be
 fought.” 

“If all Christians acted like Christ, the whole world would be
 Christian.” 

“Woman, I hold, is the personification of self-sacrifice, but 
unfortunately today she does not realize what tremendous advantage 
she has over man.” 

“Indians, will stagger humanity without shedding a drop of blood.
” 

“An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.”
 
 
 
 
 

Guru Tegh Bahadur

(1621-1675): 

The Kashmiri Brahmins, who were being persecuted by the Mughal 
emperor Aurangzeb, seeked the council of Guru Tegh Bahadur. The 
9th guru of the Sikhs upon hearing of the Brahmins predicament, 
responded: 

“Unless a holy man lays down his head for the sake of the poor
 Brahmins, there is no hope for their escape from imperial tyranny
.”, his young son reminded him “Revered father, who would be 
better equipped for this than yourself?”  

During Guru Tegh Bahadur’s subsequent imprisonment by Aurangzeb,
 he spoke out:  

“Hinduism may not be my faith, …but I would fight for the right
 of all Hindus to live with honour and practice their faith according
 to their own rites…. “ 

“All men are created by God and therefore must be free to worship 
in any manner they like. I neither convert others by force, nor submit
 to force, to change my faith.”  

The enraged Aurangzeb, upon realising Guru Tegh Bahadur would not 
convert to Islam, ordered his public beheading by the sword.  

His body was left in the dust as no one dared to pick up the body 
for fear of the emperors reprisal.

Civilized Past
 
 
 
 
 

India 

India never invaded any country in her last 10,000 years of history. 

It is the only society in the world which has never known slavery. 

India was the richest country on Earth until the time of the British 
in the early 17th Century 

Robert Clive’s personal wealth amassed from the blunder of Bengal 
during 1750’s was estimated at around £401,102 

It has been estimated that the total amount of treasure that the 
British looted from India had already reached £1,000,000,000 
(£1Billion) by 1901.

  Taking into consideration interest rates and inflation this 
would be worth close to $1,000,000,000,000 ($1Trillion) in 
real-terms today.

Similarities to Biblical mythology 

The ancient Vedic Aryan Hindus (Indus Saraswati) spoke about a
 series of Ten Pitris who ruled before the global Flood.  

Ancient Babylonian legend speaks of a pre-Flood series of ten
 kings.  

The ancient Egyptians described Ten Shining Ones who ruled 
consecutively before the Deluge.  

The last of these kings in the aforementioned lists was the 
hero who led seven others aboard a vessel in which they 
survived the global Flood.  

In ancient India, the hero was Manu who survived the global-
Flood "pralaya" with the Seven Rishis. 

In ancient Babylon, the hero's name was Zisudra who spear-headed
 the survival on the Ark of seven other humans, the Seven Apkallu.  

In ancient Egypt, the Flood hero was Toth who survived the 
Deluge along with the Seven Sages.
 
 
 
 
 

Did the Vedic Aryans travel as far as Easter Island? 

The Easter Islands located in the Pacific Ocean, were 
situated far away from any civilization.  

The craftsmanship of these islands corresponds to the 
one of the ancient Incas.  

The sign script of the Easter Islands almost equals the
 ancient scripts of Indus Valley.

The Surya Siddhanta,  

A textbook on astronomy of ancient India,

last compiled in 1000 BC, believed to be handed down from 
3000 BC by aid of complex mnemonic recital methods still known today. 

Showed the Earth's diameter to be 7,840 miles,

compared to modern measurements of 7,926.7 miles. 

Showed the distance between the Earth and the Moon as 253,000 miles,

Compared to modern measurements of 252,710 miles.
 
 
 
 
 

India 

    * The value of "pi" was first calculated by Boudhayana, 
and he explained the concept of what is known as the 
Pythagorean Theorem. He discovered this in the 6th century
 long before the European mathematicians. This was ‘validated’
by British scholars in 1999.

 

    * Algebra, trigonometry and calculus came from India. 
Quadratic equations were propounded by Sridharacharya in the 
11th century.

 

    * The largest numbers the Greeks and the Romans used were 
106 whereas Hindus used numbers as big as 1053 with specific 
names as early as 5000 BC during the Vedic period. Even today,
 the largest used number is Tera: 1012.

 

    * Maharshi Sushruta is the father of surgery. 2600 years ago 
he and health scientists of his time conducted complicated surgeries 
like caesareans, cataract, artificial limbs, fractures, 
urinary stones and even plastic surgery.

 

    * Usage of anaesthesia was well known in ancient India. 
Over 125 surgical equipments were used.

 

    * Detailed knowledge of anatomy, physiology, aetiology, 
embryology, digestion, metabolism, genetics and immunity is also 
found in many texts.

 

    * When many cultures were only nomadic forest dwellers over
 5000 years ago, Indians established Harappan culture in the
 Sindhu Valley Civilization.

 
 
 
 
 

India 

Brahmagupta, 630 A.D., said, the following about Gravity, 

“Bodies fall towards the earth as it is in the nature of
 the earth to attract bodies, just as it is in the nature of 
water to flow".
 
 
 
 
 

    * The world famous and priceless “Kohinoor” diamond, 
which is set in the Crown of the British monarch (Queen Victoria, 
and Elizabeth II), was acquired from India.

 
 

    * According to the Gemological Institute of America, up until 
1896, India was the only source for diamonds to the world.

 

    * Chess (Shataranja or AshtaPada) was reportedly invented in
 India.

 

    * The game of snakes & ladders was created by the 13th century
 poet saint Gyandev. It was originally called  'Mokshapat.' The
 ladders in the game represented virtues and the snakes indicated vices.

 

India 

    * RigVedas (1.50), a hymn addressed to the Sun, refers quite 
clearly that the Sun traverses 2,202 yojanas in half a nimesha. 
This is in fact refers to the speed of light.

 

    * The World's First Granite Temple is the Brihadeswara temple 
at Tanjavur in Tamil Nadu. The shikhara is made from a single 

'80-tonne' piece of granite.

 
 
 
 
 

Kalarippayat - Origin of Martial arts – 200 BC 

Kerala, South India, guardians of the origins of modern 
martial-arts,

influenced by Yoga and connected to the ancient Indian 
sciences of war (dhanur-veda) and medicine (ayur-veda).

The origin of kung-fu begins with the legend of a monk 
named Bodhidharma (also known as Ta Mo) who travelled 
from India to China around 500 A.D.

J. Robert Oppenheimer,

American nuclear physicist

(1904-1967):  
 

"If the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst into the 
sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One. . .
 . Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.“  

Oppenheimer "the father of the atomic bomb" quoting from the 
Hindu scripture Bhagavad-Gita upon witnessing the mushroom 
cloud resulting from the detonation of the world’s first
 atomic bomb in New Mexico, U.S.A., on July 16, 1945.  

“Access to the Vedas is the greatest privilege this century
 may claim over all previous centuries. “ 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Victor Cousin,

French Philosopher

(1792-1867): 

"When we read the poetical and philosophical monuments of the East –

above all, those of India,

which are beginning to spread in Europe –

we discover there many a truth,

and truths so profound,

and which make such a contrast with the meanness of the results
 at which European genius has sometimes stopped,

that we are constrained to bend the knee before the philosophy 
of the East,

and to see in this cradle of the human race the native land of
 the highest philosophy.“ 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Hu Shih,

former Ambassador of China to USA

(1891-1962): 

"India conquered and dominated China culturally for 20 centuries 
without ever having to send a single soldier across her border.”
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Dr. Arnold Joseph Toynbee,

British Historian

(1889-1975): 

"It is already becoming clear that a chapter which had a Western
 beginning will have to have an Indian ending,

if it is not to end in the self-destruction of the human race.

 
At this supremely dangerous moment in human history,

the only way of salvation for mankind

is the Indian way."
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Albert Einstein

(1879 -1955): 

“When I read the Bhagavad-Gita and reflect about how God created 
this universe everything else seems so superfluous.” 

"We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count, without 
which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made.“ 
 
 
 
 
 

Will Durant,


American historian,

(1885-1981):  

"India was the motherland of our race,

and Sanskrit the mother of Europe's languages;

she was the mother of our philosophy;

mother, through the Arabs, of much of our mathematics;

mother, through the Buddha, of the ideals embodied in Christianity;
 mother, through the village community, of self-government and democracy.

Mother India is in many ways the mother of us all". 

“Perhaps in return for conquest, arrogance and spoilation,

India will teach us

the tolerance and gentleness of the mature mind,

the quiet content of the unacquisitive soul,

the calm of the understanding spirit,

and a unifying, a pacifying love for all living things.”
 
 
 
 
 

Sir William Jones,

Jurist,

(1746-1794): 

“…The Sanskrit language is of wonderful structure, more perfect
 than the Greek, more copious than the Latin and more exquisitely 
refined than either. 

“... a stronger affinity than could possibly have been produced 
by accident; so strong, indeed, that no philologer could examine 
them all three, without first believing them to have sprung from 
some common source... ”
 
 
 
 
 

Ralph Waldo Emerson,

Philosopher

(1803-1882): 


"I owed a magnificent day to the Bhagavad-Gita. It was the first 
of books; it was as if an empire spoke to us, nothing small or
 unworthy, but large, serene, consistent, the voice of an old 
intelligence which in another age and climate had pondered and 
thus disposed of the same questions which exercise us.“ 

“The Indian teaching, through its clouds of legends, has yet 
a simple and grand religion, like a queenly countenance seen 
through a rich veil.

It teaches to speak truth, love others, and to dispose trifles.

The East is grand - and makes Europe appear the land of trifles.
 ...all is soul and the soul is Vishnu ...cheerful and noble is
 the genius of this cosmogony” 

“When India was explored, and the wonderful riches

of Indian theological literature found, that

dispelled once and for all,

the dream about Christianity being the sole revelation. 

- Nature makes a Brahmin of me presently.”
 
 
 
 
 

Arthur Schopenhauer,

German Philosopher

(1788-1860): 

"In the whole world there is no study so beneficial and so 
elevating as that of the Upanishads. It has been the solace
 of my life – it will be the solace of my death." 
 

“It is the most rewarding and the most elevating book 
which can be possible in the world. “ 

“I believe that the influence of the Sanskrit literature 
will penetrate not less deeply than did the revival of Greek 
literature in the fifteenth century.”
 
 
 
 
 
 

Henry David Thoreau,

American Philosopher

(1817-1862): 

“…In the morning I bathe my intellect in the stupendous
 and cosmological philosophy of the Bhagavad-Gita in comparison 
with which our modern world and its literature seem puny and 
trivial." 

“…Whenever I have read any part of the Vedas, I have felt 
that some unearthly and unknown light illuminated me. In the 
great teaching of the Vedas, there is no touch of the sectarianism.  

It is of ages, climes, and nationalities and is the royal 
road for the attainment of the Great Knowledge. When I am 
at it, I feel that I am under the spangled heavens of a 
summer night.“
 
 
 
 
 

Mark Twain,

American Author

(1835-1920): 

“This is India!

The land of dreams and romance,

of fabulous wealth and fabulous poverty,

of splendor and rags,

of palaces and hovels,

of famine and pestilence,

of genii and giants and Aladdin lamps,

of tigers and elephants,

the cobra and the jungle,

the country of a hundred nations and a hundred tongues,

of a thousand religions and two million gods,

cradle of the human race,

birthplace of human speech,

mother of history,

grandmother of legend, great-grandmother of tradition,

whose yesterdays bear date with the mouldering antiquities 
of the rest of the nations

– the one sole country under the sun that is endowed with 
an imperishable interest for alien persons,

for lettered and ignorant, wise and fool, rich and poor,

bond and free, the one land that all men desire to see,

and having seen once, by even a glimpse,

would not give that glimpse for all the shows of all the rest
 of the globe combined.

Even now, after a lapse of a year, the delirium of those days
 in Bombay has not left me and I hope it never will.”
 
 
 
 
 

Ken Wilber

American Philosopher and Author

(b-1949): 
 
 

“Larry [Warchowski] is just about as philosophically /spiritually
 well read as anyone you're likely to find, and The Matrix films
 are a stunning tribute to that fact.  

Larry said that when he found Ken's work, "It was like Schopenhauer
 discovering the Upanishads."
 
 
 
 
 

Professor Max Muller,

(1823-1900): 

"India, what can it teach us?,  

"If I were to look over the whole world to find out the country most
 richly endowed with all the wealth, power and beauty that nature 
can bestow, in some parts a very paradise on earth,

I should point to India.  

If I were asked under what sky the human mind has most developed 
some of it choicest gifts, has most deeply pondered on the greatest
 problems of life and has found solutions of some of them which 
will deserve the attention even of those who have studied Plato 
and Kant,


I should point to India.  

And if I were to ask myself from what literature we, here in 
Europe, who have been nurtured most exclusively on the thoughts 
of the Greeks and Romans and of the Semitic race and the Jewish 
may draw that corrective which is most wanted in order to make
 our inner life more comprehensive, more universal, in fact a 
more truly human life, again,

I should point to India".
 
 
 
 
 

The Encyclopaedia Britannica says:  

"Man must have an original cradle land whence the peopling of

the earth was brought about by migration. 

As to man’s cradle land, there have been many theories but the

weight of evidence is in favour of Indo-Malaysia.” 

"If there is a country on earth which can justly claim the 
honour of having been the cradle of the Human race or at 
least the scene of primitive civilization, the successive 
developments of which carried into all parts of the ancient 
world and even beyond, the blessings of knowledge which
 is the second life of man, that country is assuredly India.“
 
 
 
 
 

George Harrison,

Beatles

(1943 - 2001): 

"For every human there is a quest to find the answer to
 why I am here, who am I, where did I come from, where
 am I going. For me that became the most important thing 
in my life. Everything else is secondary."  

"Here everybody is vibrating on a material level, which 
is nowhere. Over there [India], they have this great 
feeling of something else that's just spiritual going on. “
 
 
 
 
 
 

Lin Yutang,

Chinese writer,

(1895-1976):  

“India was China’s teacher in religion and imaginative 
literature,

and world’s teacher in Trigonometry, quadratic equations,
 grammar, phonetics, Arabian Nights, animal fables, chess as
 well as in philosophy, and she inspired Boccasccio, Goethe,
 Schopenhauer and Emerson."  
 
 
 
 
 

Voltaire

Author and Philosopher,

(1694-1778): 
 

"It does not behove us, who were only savages and barbarians 
when these Indian and Chinese peoples were civilized and learned, 
to dispute their antiquity."
 
 
 
 
 
 

Aldous Huxley,

English novelist

(1894-1963): 

“The (Bhagavad) Gita is one of the clearest and most comprehensive
 summaries of the perennial philosophy ever to have been done. Hence 
its enduring value, not only for the Indians, but also for all mankind.
 It is perhaps the most systematic spiritual statement of the perennial 
philosophy. “
 
 
 
 
 
 

Dalai Lama,

(b-1935): 

“Hindus and Buddhists, we are two sons of the same mother."
 
 
 
 
 
 

Rudyard Kipling

(1865-1936): 

“Now it is not good for the Christian's health to hustle the Hindu 
brown. For the Christian riles and the Hindu smiles and weareth the 
Christian down ;  
And the end of the fight is a tombstone while with the name of the 
late deceased and the epitaph drear , 
‘A fool lies here who tried to hustle the east’ ".  
 
 
 
 
 

Apollonius Tyaneus

Greek Thinker and Traveller,

1st Century AD 

"In India

I found a race of mortals living upon the Earth, but not adhering to it.

Inhabiting cities, but not being fixed to them,

possessing everything but possessed by nothing."
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

John Archibald Wheeler

Theoretical Physicist, who coined “Black Hole”

(b-1911): 

“I like to think that someone will trace how the deepest thinking 
of India made its way to Greece and from there to the philosophy of 
our times.” 
 
 
 
 
 

Guy Sorman,

author of “Genius of India”: 

“Temporal notions in Europe were overturned by an India rooted in 
eternity.

The Bible had been the yardstick for measuring time,

but the infinitely vast time cycles of India

suggested that the world was much older than anything the Bible spoke of.

It seem as if the Indian mind was better prepared for the

chronological mutations of

Darwinian evolution and astrophysics.” 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Adam Smith,

Father of economics, and author of “Wealth of Nations”:

(1723-1790) 

"The difference between the genius of the British constitution which 
protects and governs North America, and that of the mercantile 
company [British East India Company] which oppresses and domineers 
in the East Indies[India], cannot perhaps be better illustrated 
than by the different state of those countries." 
 
 
 
 
 
 

H.G. Wells,

Sociologist, and Historian and Author of “Time Machine” 
and “War of the Worlds”

(1866-1946): 

"The history of India for many centuries had been happier, 
less fierce, and more dreamlike than any other history. In 
these favourable conditions, they built a character - meditative
 and peaceful and a nation of philosophers such as could nowhere 
have existed except in India."  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Friedrich Mejer: 

“It will no longer remain to be doubted that

the priests of Egypt and the sages of Greece

have drawn directly from the original well of India,  

that it is to the banks of the Ganges and the Indus

that our hearts feel drawn

as [if] by some hidden urge.”
 
 
 
 
 

Jean-Sylvain Bailly,


French Astronomer,

(1736-1793): 

“The motion of the stars calculated by the Hindus before some 
4500 years vary not even a single minute from the tables of Cassine 
and Meyer (used in the 19-th century).  

…The Hindu systems of astronomy are by far the oldest and that 
from which the Egyptians, Greek, Romans and - even the Jews 
derived from the Hindus their knowledge.” 
 
 
 
 
 

George Bernard Shaw,

Irish dramatist, literary critic, socialist spokesman

(1856-1950): 

“The Indian way of life provides the vision of the natural, 
real way of life. We veil ourselves with unnatural masks.

On the face of India are the tender expressions which carry 
the mark of the Creator's hand.”
 
 
 
 
 

Dr David Frawley,

American Teacher, Doctor, Author, Speaker, Historian 
 

“India possesses a great indigenous civilization dating 
back to 7000 BC, such as recent archaeological discoveries 
at Mehrgarh clearly reveal. It had the most extensive urban
 culture in the world in the third millennium BCE with the many 
cities of the Indus and Sarasvati rivers.  


When the Sarasvati river of Vedic fame dried up in the second
 millennium BCE, the culture shifted east to the more certain
 rivers of the Gangetic plain, which became the dominant 
region of the subcontinent.  

Gone is the old idea of the Aryan invasion and an outside 
basis for Indian culture. In its place is the continuity 
of a civilization and its literature going back to the earliest
 period of history.  

Unfortunately, over the first fifty years since Independence, 
India has not discovered its real roots. Its intellectuals have
 mimicked Western trends in thought. They have forgotten their 
own profound modern sages like Swami Vivekananda and Sri 
Aurobindo who projected modern and futuristic views of the
 Indian tradition.  

While Westerners come to India seeking spiritual knowledge,
 Indian intellectuals look to the West with an adulation 
that is often blind, if not obsequious.” 
 
 
 
 
 

Francois Gautier,

French Journalist and Writer

(b-1950-): 

“Cry! O my beloved India!“ 

“The BJP government has fallen. You are exulting, O Christians! 
You seem to forget how much this country gave you: the first
 Christian community in the world, that of the Syrian Christians, 
was established in Kerala in the 1st century.” 

The BJP government has fallen. You are rejoicing, O Muslims! 
You seem to forget that Arab merchants came to Hindu India 
long before the first Muslim invasions of the 7th century. 
They were also welcomed and allowed to practise their religion 
in peace and to trade as they liked.  

The BJP government has fallen. You are rejoicing, O Marxists!
 But do you understand that Marxism is dead all over the world; 
and that even in China it is Marxism in name only, as its 
government actually implements capitalist policies? 

The BJP government has fallen. Your are rejoicing, O members
 of the Indian intelligentsia! You think that reading the 
latest New York Times bestseller, speaking polished English, 
and putting down your own countrymen, specially anybody 
who has a Hindu connection, makes you an intellectual. But 
in the process you have not only lost your roots, you have
 turned your back on a culture and civilisation that is 
thousands of years old and has given so much to the world. 

Cry O my beloved India, look what thy children have done to thee!

Ramayana 

Mahabharata 

Longest Epic in world literature with 100,000 two-line 
stanzas, first composed about 5000 years ago. 

The first Indian epic consisting of 24,000 verses divided 
into 7 books, composed about 6500 years ago.
 
 
 
 
 

“After many births the wise seek refuge in me, seeing me 
everywhere and in everything. Such great souls are very rare.” 

"Your very nature will drive you to fight, the only choice 
is what to fight against.” 

“On action alone be your interest, Never on its fruits. 
Let not the fruits of action be your motive, 
Nor be thy attachment to inaction. “ 

“This is how actions were done by the ancient seekers of 
freedom; follow their example: act, surrendering the fruits
 of action.” 

“For certain is death for the born,

and certain is birth for the dead; 
Therefore over the inevitable you should not grieve. “ 

“For the uncontrolled there is no wisdom. For the 
uncontrolled there is no concentration, and for him 
without concentration, there is no peace. And for the 
unpeaceful how can there ever be happiness? “ 

“When a man dwells on the objects of sense, he creates
 an attraction for them; attraction develops into desire,
 and desire breeds anger.“ 

The words of Lord Krsna crystallized in the Bhagavad Gita. 

Lord Krsna counsels Prince Arjuna during the Great 
Mahabharata War, in Kurukshetra, India, circa 3100 B.C.,
 
 
 
 
 

The 4 kinetic ideas behind Hindu Vedic Spirituality 

Karma 

Maya 

Nirvana 

Yoga 

The law of universal causality, which connects man with 
the cosmos and condemns him to transmigrate. 

The world is not simply what it seems to the human senses.

Absolute reality, situated somewhere beyond the cosmic 
illusion woven by Maya and beyond human experience as 
conditioned by Karma.  

The state of absolute blessedness, characterized by release
 from the cycle of reincarnations; freedom from the pain and 
care of the external world; bliss.  

Implies integration; bringing all the faculties of the psyche
 under the control of the self
 
 
 
 
 

 

is the Sanskrit word for; 

Amen (Christian)

Amin (Muslim)

Aum (Hindu)

Hūm (Bhuddist) 

“AUM” or “OM”

The first sound of the Almighty – Infinite Reality - 
Oneness with the supreme

India has started construction of the World’s largest 
Buddha statue, it is being designed to last for the next
 1,000 years. 

The statue will be situated at Kushinagar, Uttar Pradesh,
 where the Buddha passed away. 

The statue, destined to bring world peace, will be seated 
on a throne 17-storeys high, housing a huge temple with 
the feet resting on a Lotus, touching the Earth.

"In India today,

we have a lady born a Catholic  (Sonia Gandhi)

stepping aside so a Sikh (Manmohan Singh)

could be sworn in by a Muslim president (Abdul Kalam)

to lead a nation that's 82% Hindu.  

I defy anyone to cite another country with such diversity 
and tolerance to its political leadership."

Ex-Prime Minister,

Sri Atal Bihari Vajpayee 

A treaty was signed on 6 January, 2004, establishing a South
 Asian Free Trade Area among the seven SAARC countries (India,
 Pakistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Maldives) 
in the region. 

India committed to a South Asian Union as the ultimate objective,
 with mutual security cooperation, open borders and a single 
currency in Southern Asia in the long run. 

"The bonds of ethnicity and culture which hold together the 
peoples of this region are more enduring than the barriers of
 political prejudice that have been erected quite recently.“ 

”….Friends, India is ready to do everything that is 
necessary, to walk as many extra miles as may be required, 
to make this vision a reality.”
 
 
 
 
 

Dr Abdul Kalam, President of India,

father of India’s space, missile and satellite programme 
and author of “India 2020 Vision”. 

“I have three visions for India.” 

1.

  “ In 3000 years of our history people from all over the 
world have come and invaded us, captured our lands, conquered
 our minds. From Alexander onwards. The Greeks, the Turks, the 
Moguls, the Portuguese, the British, the French, the Dutch, all
 of them came and looted us, took over what was ours.

Yet we have not done this to any other nation. We have not 
conquered anyone. We have not grabbed their land, their culture, 
their history and tried to enforce our way of life on them.

Why?


Because we respect the freedom of others. That is why my first 
vision is that of FREEDOM.

I believe that India got its first vision of this in 1857, when
 we started the war of independence. It is this freedom that 
we must protect and nurture and build on. If we are not free, 
no one will respect us. “ 

2.

  My second vision for India is DEVELOPMENT. For fifty years 
we have been a developing nation. It is time we see ourselves
 as a developed nation. We are among top 5 nations of the world 
in terms of GDP. We have 10% growth rate in most areas. Our
 poverty levels are falling. Our achievements are being 
globally recognized today. Yet we lack the self-confidence to
 see ourselves as

a developed nation, self-reliant and self-assured. 

3.

  I have a THIRD vision. India must stand up to the world. 
Because I believe that unless India stands up to the world,
 no one will respect us. Only strength respects strength. 
We must be strong not only as a military power but also as
 an economic power. Both must go hand-in-hand.”
 
 
 
 
 

India’s population to be the largest in the world 

India is set to overtake China as the world's most populous
 nation by 2050. 

India’s population is expected to grow from 1.08bn to 1.63bn 
people, overtaking China, which is forecast to reach 1.44bn 
from 1.3bn currently.  

India, will also have the highest working population in the 
World — 700 million people out of 1.1 billion people are 
young; the young population will continue till 2050.  
 
 
 
 
 
 

Annie Wood Besant,

British Theosophical Society,

(1847-1933): 
 

“After a study of some forty years and more of the great 
religions of the world,

I find none so perfect, none so scientific, none so 
philosophical and none so spiritual than the great 
religion known by the name of Hinduism.  

Make no mistake, without Hinduism, India has no future.  

Hinduism is the soil in to which India's roots are 
stuck and torn out of that she will inevitably wither 
as a tree torn out from its place.   

And if Hindus do not maintain Hinduism

- who shall save it? 

If India's own children do not cling to her faith

    * who shall guard it?
    * India alone can save India and India and Hinduism
 are one.”

Bill Gates Profile 
===================== 

Name: Bill Gates
Nickname: Trey
Date of birth: 28 October 1955
Place of birth: Seattle, Washington, USA
Birth name: William Henry Gates III
Height: 5' 10
 
Family and Early Childhood -
 
On October 28, 1955, shortly after 9:00 p.m., William 
Henry Gates III was born. He was born into a family with a 
rich history in business, politics, and community service. 
His great-grandfather had been a state legislator and mayor, 
his grandfather was the vice president of a national bank, 
and his father was a prominent lawyer. [Wallace, 1992, p. 8-9] 
Early on in life, it was apparent that Bill Gates inherited the 
ambition, intelligence, and competitive spirit that had helped 
his progenitors rise to the top in their chosen professions. 
In elementary school he quickly surpassed all of his peer's 
abilities in nearly all subjects, especially math and science. 
His parents recognized his intelligence and decided to enroll 
him in Lakeside, a private school known for its intense academic 
environment. This decision had far reaching effects on Bill Gates's 
life. 
For at Lakeside, Bill Gates was first introduced to computers.
 
First computing Experience -
 
In the Spring of 1968, the Lakeside prep school decided that it 
should acquaint the student body with the world of computers 
[Teamgates.com, 9/29/96]. Computers were still too large and 
costly for the school to purchase its own. Instead, the school 
had a fund raiser and bought computer time on a DEC PDP-10 owned 
by General Electric. A few thousand dollars were raised which the 
school figured would buy more than enough time to last into the next 
school year. However, Lakeside had drastically underestimated the 
allure this machine would have for a hand full of young students. 
Bill Gates, Paul Allen, and a few other Lakeside students 
(many of whom were the first programmers hired at Microsoft) 
immediately became inseparable from the computer. They would 
stay in the computer room all day and night, writing programs, 
reading computer literature and anything else they could to 
learn about computing. Soon Gates and the others started running 
into problems with the faculty. Their homework was being turned 
in late (if at all), they were skipping classes to be in the 
computer room and worst of all, they had used up all of the 
schools computer time in just a few weeks. [Wallace, 1992, p. 24]
 
In the fall of 1968, Computer Center Corporation opened for business 
in Seattle. It was offering computing time at good rates, and one of 
the chief programmers working for the corporation had a child attending 
Lakeside. A deal was struck between Lakeside Prep School and the Computer 
Center Corporation that allowed the school to continue providing it's 
students with computer time. [Wallace, 1992, p. 27] Gates and his comrades 
immediately began exploring the contents of this new machine. It was not 
long before the young ha�kers started causing problems. They caused the 
system to crash several times and broke the computers security system. 
They even altered the files that recorded the amount of computer time 
they were using. They were caught and the Computer Center Corporation 
banned them from the system for several weeks.
 
Bill Gates, Paul Allen and, two other ha�kers from Lakeside formed the 
Lakeside Programmers Group in late 1968. They were determined to find a 
way to apply their computer skills in the real world. The first 
opportunity to do this was a direct result of their mischievous 
activity with the school's computer time. The Computer Center 
Corporation�s business was beginning to suffer due to the systems 
weak security and the frequency that it crashed. Impressed with 
Gates and the other Lakeside computer addicts' previous assaults 
on their computer, the Computer Center Corporation decided to hire 
the students to find bugs and expose weaknesses in the computer 
system. In return for the Lakeside Programming Group's help, the 
Computer Center Corporation would give them unlimited computer time 
[Wallace, 1992, p. 27]. The boys could not refuse. Gates is quoted as 
saying "It was when we got free time at C-cubed (Computer Center 
Corporation) that we really got into computers. I mean, then I became 
hardcore. It was day and night" [Wallace, 1992, p. 30]. Although the 
group was hired just to find bugs, they also read any computer related 
material that the day shift had left behind. The young ha�kers would 
even pick employees for new information. It was here that Gates and 
Allen really began to develop the talents that would lead to the 
formation of Microsoft seven years later.
 
Roots of Business Career -
 
Computer Center Corporation began to experience financial problems 
late in 1969. The Company finally went out of business in March of 
1970. The Lakeside Programmers Group had to find a new way to get 
computer time. Eventually they found a few computers on the University 
of Washington's campus where Allen's dad worked. The Lakeside 
Programmers Group began searching for new chances to apply their 
computer skills.
 
Their first opportunity came early the next year when Information 
Sciences Inc. hired them to program a payroll program. Once again 
the group was given free computer time and for the first time, 
a source of income. ISI had agreed to give them royalties whenever 
it made money from any of the groups programs. As a result of the 
business deal signed with Information Sciences Inc., the group also 
had to become a legal business [Wallace, 1992, p. 42-43]. Gates and 
Allen's next project involved starting another company entirely on 
their own, Traf-O-Data. They produced a small computer which was 
used to help measure traffic flow. From the project they grossed 
around $20,000. The Traf-O-Data company lasted until Gates left 
for college.
 
During Bill Gates' junior year at Lakeside, the administration 
offered him a job computerizing the school's scheduling system. 
Gates asked Allen to help with the project. He agreed and the 
following summer, they wrote the program. In his senior year, 
Gates and Allen continued looking for opportunities to use their 
skills and make some money. It was not long until they found this 
opportunity. The defense contractor TRW was having trouble with a 
bug infested computer similar to the one at Computer Center Corporation. 
TRW had learned of the experience the two had working on the 
Computer Center Corporation�s system and offered
 
Gates and Allen jobs. However thing would be different at TRW 
they would not be finding the bugs they would be in charge of 
fixing them. "It was at TRW that Gates began to develop as a 
serious programmer," and it was there that Allen and Gates 
first started talking seriously about forming their own software 
company [Wallace, 1992, p. 49-51].
 
In the fall of 1973, Bill Gates left home for Harvard University 
[Teamgates.com, 9/29/96]. He had no idea what he wanted to study, 
so he enrolled as prelaw. Gates took the standard freshman courses 
with the exception of signing up for one of Harvard's toughest math 
courses. He did well but just as in high school, his heart was not 
in his studies. After locating the school's computer center, he 
lost himself in the world of computers once again. Gates would spend 
many long nights in front of the school's computer and the next days 
asleep in class. Paul Allen and Gates remained in close contact even 
with Bill away at school. They would often discuss ideas for future 
projects and the possibility of one day starting a business. At the 
end of Gates's first year at Harvard, the two decided that Allen 
should move closer to him so that they may be able to follow up on 
some of their ideas. That summer they both got jobs working for 
Honeywell [Wallace, 1992, p. 59]. As the summer dragged on, Allen 
began to push Bill harder with the idea that they should open a 
software company. Gates was still not sure enough to drop out of 
school. The following year, however, that would all change.
 
The Birth of Microsoft -
 
In December of 1974, Allen was on his way to visit Gates when along 
the way he stopped to browse the current magazines. What he saw 
changed his and Bill Gates's lives forever. On the cover of Popular 
Electronics was a picture of the Altair 8080 and the headline 
"World's First Microcomputer Kit to Rival Commercial Models." 
He bought the issue and rushed over to Gates's dorm room. They 
both recognized this as their big opportunity. The two knew that 
the home computer market was about to explode and that someone 
would need to make software for the new machines. Within a few days, 
Gates had called MITS (Micro Instrumentation and Telemetry Systems), 
the makers of the Altair. He told the company that he and Allen had 
developed a BASIC that could be used on the Altair [Teamgates.com, 
9/29/96]. This was a lie. They had not even written a line of code. 
They had neither an Altair nor the chip that ran the computer. The 
MITS Company did not know this and was very interested in seeing 
their BASIC. So, Gates and Allen began working feverishly on the 
BASIC they had promised. The code for the program was left mostly 
up to Bill Gates while Paul Allen began working on a way to simulate 
the Altair with the schools PDP-10. Eight weeks later, the two felt 
their program was ready. Allen was to fly to MITS and show off their 
creation. The day after Allen arrived at MITS, it was time to test 
their BASIC. Entering the program into the company's Altair was the 
first time
 
Allen had ever touched one. If the Altair simulation he designed or 
any of Gates's code was faulty, the demonstration would most likely 
have ended in failure. This was not the case, and the program worked 
perfectly the first time [Wallace, 1992, p. 80]. MITS arranged a deal 

with Gates and Allen to buy the rights to their BASIC.[Teamgates. 
com, 9/29/96] Gates was convinced that the software market had been
 born. Within a year, Bill Gates had dropped out of Harvard and 
Microsoft was formed. by - John Mirick

Jise tum policy change kahte ho, wahi to trick hai.

"Ek pal main tum Best performer or Hero no.1 ya Super
Star ban jaate ho,

Dusre pal main tum worst performer or target nahin
achieve kar paatey ho."

Appraisal, incentive etc. etc. mann se hata do,
vichaar se mita do, Phir company tumhari hai or tum
company ke.
na yeh increment wageyrah tumhare liye hai
na tum iske kabhi ho, Parantu job secure hai
Phir tum tension kyon lete ho........?


Tum apne aap ko company ko arpit kar do,
Yahi sabse bada golden rule hai,
Jo is golden rule ko jaanta hai,
woh review, incentive,recession,retirement aadi se sada
ke liye muqt ho jaata hai....

Mr.Warren Buffet... 
The second richest man 
======================
 
There was a one hour interview on CNBC with Warren 

Buffet, the second richest man who has donated $31 

billion to charity.
Here are some very 
interesting aspects of his life:
 
1. He bought his first share at age 11 and he now 

regrets that he started too late!



2. He bought a small farm at age 14 with savings from 

delivering newspapers. 



3. He still lives in the same small 3-bedroom house in 

mid-town Omaha, that he bought after he got married 50 

years ago. He says that he has everything he needs in 

that house. His house does not have a wall or a fence. 



4. He drives his own car everywhere and does not have a 

driver or security people around him. 



5. He never travels by private jet, although he owns the 

world's largest private jet company. 



6. His company, Berkshire Hathaway, owns 63 companies. 

He writes only one letter each year to the CEOs of these 

companies, giving them goals  for the year.He never 

holds meetings or calls them on a regular basis.  
He has given his CEO's only two rules. 
Rule number 1: 
Do not lose any of your share holder's money. 
Rule number 2: 
Do not forget rule number 1. 



7. He does not socialize with the high society crowd. 

His past time after he gets home is to make himself some 

pop corn and watch Television. 



8. Bill Gates, the world's richest man met him for the 

first time only 5 years ago. Bill Gates did not think he 

had anything in common with Warren Buffet. So he had 

scheduled his meeting only for half hour. But when Gates 

met him, the meeting lasted for ten hours and Bill Gates 

became a devotee of Warren Buffet. 



9. Warren Buffet does not carry a cell phone, nor has a 

computer on  his desk.  

His advice to young people: 
"Stay away from credit cards and invest in yourself 

and 

Remember: 
A. 
Money doesn't create man but it is the man who created 

money.

B. 
Live your life as simple as you are. 

C. 
Don't do what others say, just listen them, but do what 

you feel  good. 

D. 
Don't go on brand name; just wear those things in which 

u feel  comfortable.

E. 
Don't waste your money on unnecessary things; just spend 

on them  who are really in need rather. 

F. 
After all it's your life then why give chance to others 

to rule our  life."

Four Thoughts for thoughts
==============================

# Thought 1 #

When we are born, our mother's get the compliments and the flowers.
When we are married, our brides get the presents and the publicity.
When we die, our widows get the life insurance. What do women want 
to be liberated from?

------------------------------------------------------

# Thought 2 #

The average man's life consists of : 

Twenty years of having his mother ask him where he is going,

Forty years of having his wife ask the same question;

and at the end, the mourners wondering too.

 

--------------------------------------------------------

 

# Thought 3 #

 

A Man was walking down a street when he heard a voice from behind, 
"If you take one more step, a brick will fall down on your head and kill you."

The man stopped and a big brick fell right in front of him. The man 
was astonished.

He went on, and after a while he was going to cross the road.

Once again the voice shouted, "Stop! Stand still! If you take 
one more step a car will run over you, and you will die."

 

The man did as he was instructed, just as a car came careening 
around the corner, barely missing him.

The man asked. "Who are you?"

"I am your guardian angel," the voice answered.

 

"Oh, yeah?" the man asked "And where the hell were you when 
I got married?"

 --------------------------------------------------------

 

# Thought 4 #

 

Everyone in the wedding ceremony was watching the radiant 
bride as her father escorted her down the aisle to give away to groom.
They reached the altar and the waiting groom; the bride kissed her father 
and placed some thing in his hand.

 

Everyone in the room was wondering what was given to the father by bride. 
The father could feel the suspense in the air and all eyes were on him to 
divulge the secret and say something.

 

So he announced "Ladies and Gentlemen today is the luckiest day of my life.
" Then he raises his hands with what his daughter gave him and continued, 
"My daughter finally, finally returned my credit card to me."

The whole audience including priest started laughing but not the poor groom.

Rhyming couplets
================== 
[A local newspaper (in England) ran a competition asking for a rhyme with 
the most romantic first line... But the least romantic second line.

Here are some of the entries they received.]
====================

*********
 

My feelings for you no words can tell,

Except for maybe " go to hell"   


*********

 

Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet, and so are you.

But the roses are wilting, the violets are dead, 
the sugar bowl's  empty and so is your head.  


*********
 

Oh loving beauty you float with grace

If only you could hide your face  


*********
 


Kind, intelligent, loving and hot;

This describes everything you are not  


*********
 

I want to feel your sweet embrace

But don't take that paper bag off of your face  


*********
 

I love your smile, your face, and your eyes -

Damn, I'm good at telling lies !  


*********
 

I see your face when I am dreaming.

That's why I always wake up screaming  


*********
 

My love, you take my breath away.

What have you stepped in to smell this way

My sweet potato, do you carrot all for me?


You are the apple of my eye.

With your radish hair and turnip nose. 

My heart beets for you. 

My love for you is as strong as onions.

If we cantaloupe, lettuce marry,

Why I am Glad to be a Women:
=============================
We got off the Titanic first. 
There are times when chocolate 
really can solve all your problems. 
We have enough sense to realize 
that the easiest way to get out 
of being lost is to ask for 
directions. 
We don't have to fart to amuse 
ourselves. 
We get to flirt with systems 
support men who always return 
our calls, and are nice to us 
when we blow up our computers. 
Our boyfriend's clothes make us 
look elfin & gorgeous. Guys look 
like complete idiots in ours. 
Men die earlier, so we get to 
cash in on the life insurance. 
Free drinks, Free dinners, 
Free movies ... 
(you get the point). 
We can hug our friends without 
wondering if she thinks we're gay. 
We can hug our friends without 
wondering if WE'RE gay! 
We can congratulate our team-mate 
without ever touching her butt. 
We never have to reach down every 
so often to make sure our privates 
are still there. 

So congratulations girls!!
 
Guys, better luck next time.

=====================
The top 10 languages 
spoken in the world
===================== 

10. French -- 
Number of speakers: 129 million
Often called the most romantic language in the world, French is 
spoken in tons of countries, including Belgium, Canada, Rwanda, 
Cameroon, and Haiti. Oh, and France too. We're actually very lucky 
that French is so popular, because without it, we might have been 
stuck with Dutch Toast, Dutch Fries, and Dutch kissing (ew!). 
To say "hello" in French, say "Bonjour" (bone-JOOR).
 
 9. Malay—Indonesian 
Number of speakers: 159 million
Malay-Indonesian is spoken - surprise - in Malaysia and Indonesia.
 Actually, we kinda fudged the numbers on this one because there 
are many dialects of Malay, the most popular of which is Indonesian. 
But they're all pretty much based on the same root language, which
 makes it the ninth most-spoken in the world.Indonesia is a 
fascinating place; a nation made up of over 13,000 islands it is 
the sixth most populated country in the world. Malaysia borders on 
two of the larger parts of Indonesia (including the island of Borneo), 
and is mostly known for its capital city of Kuala Lumpur. 
To say "hello" in Indonesian, say "Selamat pagi" (se-LA-maht PA-gee).
  
8. Portuguese -- 
Number of speakers: 191 million
Think of Portuguese as the little language that could. In the 12th 
Century, Portugal won its independence from Spain and expanded all 
over the world with the help of its famous explorers like Vasco da 
Gama and Prince Henry the Navigator. (Good thing Henry became a 
navigator . . . could you imagine if a guy named "Prince Henry 
the Navigator" became a florist?) Because Portugal got in so early
 on the exploring game, the language established itself all over 
the world, especially in Brazil (where it's the national language), 
Macau, Angola, Venezuela, and Mozambique. 
To say "hello" in Portuguese, say "Bom dia" (bohn DEE-ah).
  
7. Bengali -- 
Number of speakers: 211 million
In Bangladesh, a country of 120+ million people, just about everybody 
speaks Bengali. And because Bangladesh is virtually surrounded by India 
(where the population is growing so fast, just breathing the air can get 
you pregnant), the number of Bengali speakers in the world is much higher 
than most people would expect. 
To say "hello" in Bengali, say "Ei Je" (EYE-jay).
  
6. Arabic -- 
Number of speakers: 246 million
Arabic, one of the world's oldest languages, is spoken in the Middle 
East, with speakers found in countries such as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, 
Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, and Egypt. Furthermore, because Arabic 
is the language of the Koran, millions of Moslems in other countries 
speak Arabic as well. So many people have a working knowledge of Arabic, 
in fact, that in 1974 it was made the sixth official language of the 
United Nations. 
To say "hello" in Arabic, say "Al salaam a'alaykum" (Ahl sah-LAHM ah 
ah-LAY-koom) .
  
5. Russian -- 
Number of speakers: 277 million
Mikhail Gorbachev, Boris Yeltsin, and Yakov Smirnoff are among the 
millions of Russian speakers out there. Sure, we used to think of 
them as our Commie enemies. Now we think of them as our Commie friends. 
One of the six languages in the UN, Russian is spoken not only in the
 Mother Country, but also in Belarus, Kazakhstan, and the U.S. 
(to name just a few places). 
To say "hello" in Russian, say "Zdravstvuite" (ZDRAST-vet- yah).
 
4. Spanish -- 
Number of speakers: 392 million
Aside from all of those kids who take it in high school, Spanish 
is spoken in just about every South American and Central American 
country, not to mention Spain, Cuba, and the U.S. There is a particular 
interest in Spanish in the U.S., as many English words are borrowed 
from the language, including: tornado, bonanza, patio, quesadilla, 
enchilada, and taco grande supreme. 
To say "hello" in Spanish, say "Hola" (OH-la).
 
3. Hindustani -- 
Number of speakers: 497 million
Hindustani is the primary language of India's crowded population, 
and it encompasses a huge number of dialects (of which the most 
commonly spoken is Hindi). While many predict that the population 
of India will soon surpass that of China, the prominence of English 
in India prevents Hindustani from surpassing the most popular 
language in the world. If you're interested in learning a little 
Hindi, there's a very easy way: rent an Indian movie. The film 
industry in India is the most prolific in the world, making 
thousands of action/romance/ musicals every year. 
To say "hello" in Hindustani, say "Namaste" (Nah-MAH-stay) .
 
2. English -- 
Number of speakers: 508 million
While English doesn't have the most speakers, it is the official 
language of more countries than any other language. Its speakers 
hail from all around the world, including the U.S., Australia, 
England, Zimbabwe, the Caribbean, Hong Kong, South Africa, and 
Canada. We'd tell you more about English, but you probably feel 
pretty comfortable with the language already. Let's just move 
on to the most popular language in the world. 
To say "hello" in English, say "What's up, freak?" (watz-UP-freek) .
 
1. Mandarin -- 
Number of speakers: 1 billion+
Surprise, surprise, the most widely spoken language on the planet 
is based in the most populated country on the planet, China. 
Beating second-place English by a 2 to 1 ratio, but don't let 
that lull you into thinking that Mandarin is easy to learn. 
Speaking Mandarin can be really tough, because each word can be 
pronounced in four ways (or "tones"), and a beginner will 
invariably have trouble distinguishing one tone from another. 
But if over a billion people could do it, so could you. Try 
saying hello! 
To say "hello" in Mandarin, say "Ni hao" (Nee HaOW). ("Hao" is 
pronounced as one syllable, but the tone requires that you let 
your voice drop midway, and then raise it again at the end.)

Obituary Of The Late 
Mr. Common Sense"
====================

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend,
Common Sense, who had been with us for many years.
No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth
records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He
will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable
lessons as: Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
Why the early bird gets the worm; Life isn't always fair;
and Maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies
(don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable
strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-
intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in
place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual
harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended
from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a
teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only
worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked
teachers for doing the job that they themselves had
failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. He
declined even further when schools were required to
get parental consent to administer Tylenol, sun lotion
or a band-aid to a student; but could not inform parents
when a student became pregnant and wanted to have
an abortion.

Common Sense took a beating as the Ten Commandments
became contraband; churches became businesses; and
criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense lost the will to live when you couldn't
defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and
the burglar could sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the ghost, after a woman
failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot.
She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded
a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents,
Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter,
Responsibility; and his son, Reason.

He is survived by his 3 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights,
Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim.

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized
he was gone

Poor Man !!
===========
God created Donkey and said to him. 

"You will be a donkey. You will work un-tiringly from 
sunrise to sunset 
carrying burdens on your back. You will eat grass,you 
will have no intelligence and you will live  50 years."

The donkey answered: 
"I will be a donkey, but to live 50 years is much. Give 
me only 20 years"
God granted his wish. 

..............................................


God created the dog and said to him:
 
"You will guard the house of man. You will be his best Friend. 
You will eat the scraps that he gives you and you will live 30 years.
You will be a dog. " 

The dog answered: 
"Sir, to live 30 years is too much,give me only 15 years. 
" God granted his wish. 
..............................................


God created the monkey and said to him: 

"You will be a monkey. You will swing from branch to branch doing tricks. 
You will be amusing and you will live 
20 years. " 

The monkey answered: 
"To live 20 years is too much, give me only 10 years." 
God granted his wish. 
..............................................


Finally God created man and said to him: 

"You will be man, the only rational creature on the face of the earth. 
You will use your intelligence to become master over all the animals. 
You will dominate the world and you will live 20 years." 

Man responded: 
"Sir, I will be a man but to live only 
20 years is very little,give me the 30 years that the donkey 
refused,the 15 years that the dog did not want and the 10 years 
the monkey refused.
" God granted man's wish 
..............................................

And since then, man lives 

20 years as a man ,marries and spends 30 years like a donkey, 
working and carrying all the burdens on his back. 

Then when his children are grown,he lives 15 years like a dog 
taking care of the house 
and eating whatever is given to him,

so that when he is old,he can retire and live 10 years like a 
monkey,going from house to house and from one son or daughter 
to another doing tricks to amuse his grandchildren.

That's Life.
Is'nt it ?

LOVE IN MATHS !!
================ 

My Dear SweetHeart,


Yesterday, I was passing by your 
rectangular house in trigonometric lane.


There I saw you with our cute circular face,
conical nose and spherical eyes, 
standing in your triangular garden. 
Before seeing you my heart was a null 
set, but when a vector of magnitude 
(likeness) from your eyes at a 
deviation of theta radians made a 
tangent to my heart, it differentiated.

My love for you is a quadratic equation 
with real roots, which only you can solve 
by making good binary relation with me. 

The cosine of my love for you extends to 
infinity. 

I promise that I should not resolve you 
into partial functions but if I do so, 
you can integrate me by applying the 
limits from zero to infinity. You are 
as essential to me as an element to a 
set. 

The geometry of my life revolves around 
your acute personality. My love, if you 
do not meet me at parabola restaurant on 
date 10 at sunset, when the sun is making 
an angle of 160 degrees, my heart would 
be like a solved polynomial of degree 10. 
With love from your higher order 
derivatives of maxima and minima, 
of an unknown function.


Truly Yours

A Great Thief !!!
=================
There once was a man who went to a 
computer trade show. Each day as he 
entered, the man told the guard at 
the door: 
"I am a great thief, renowned for 
my feats of shoplifting. Be forewarned, 
for this trade show shall not escape me 
unplundered." 

This speech disturbed the guard greatly, 
because there were millions of dollars 
of computer equipment inside, so he 
watched the man carefully. But the man 
merely wandered from booth to booth, 
humming quietly to himself. 

When the man left, the guard took him 
aside and searched his clothes, but 
nothing was to be found. 

On the next day of the trade show, 
the man returned and chided the guard, 
saying, "I escaped with a vast booty yesterday, 
but today will be even better.
" So the guard watched him ever more 
closely, but to no avail. 

On the final day of the trade show, 
the guard could restrain his curiosity 
no longer. "Sir Thief," he said, 
"I am so perplexed, I cannot live in 
peace. Please enlighten me. What is 
it that you are stealing?" 

The man smiled. 
"I am stealing ideas," he said

Innocent Par Excellence
======================= 
 
1)  NUDITY 


I was driving with my three young children one warm  summer evening 

when a woman in the convertible ahead   of us stood up and waved.  
She was stark naked! As I  was reeling from the shock, I heard my 
5-year-old   shout from the back seat, "Mom! That lady isn't wearing a seat belt!"


***********
 
2) OPINIONS 


On the first day of school, a first-grader handed his   teacher a note 
from his mother. 

The note read,   "The opinions expressed by this child are not necessarily 
those of his parents." 


***********
 
3) KETCHUP 



A woman was trying hard to get the ketchup out of the  jar. 

During her struggle the phone rang so she  asked her 4-year-old daughter 
to answer the phone.  "Mommy can't come to the phone to talk to you right 
now. She's hitting the bottle." 
 


***********
 
4) MORE NUDITY  


A little boy got lost at the YMCA and found himself in  the women's locker room. 


When he was spotted, the   room burst into shrieks, with ladies grabbing 
towels and running for cover.  


The little boy watched in   amazement and then asked, "What's the matter, 
haven't you ever seen a little boy before?" 


***********
 
5) POLICE # 1 


While taking a routine vandalism report at an  elementary school, I was 
interrupted by a little girl  about 6 years old.  Looking up and down at my uniform, 


She asked, "Are you a cop?" Yes," I  answered and continued writing the 
report. "My  mother said if I ever needed help I should ask the  police. 
Is that right? "Yes, that's right," I told her.  "Well, then," she said as 
she extended her foot toward me, "would you please tie my shoe?" 


***********
 
6) POLICE # 2  


It was the end of the day when I parked my police van in front of the 
station. As I gathered my equipment,    


My K-9 partner, Jake, was barking, and I saw a little  boy staring in 
at me "Is that a dog you got back  there?" he asked. "It sure is," I 
replied. Puzzled, the boy looked at me and then towards the back of the 

van. Finally he said," What'd he do?" 


***********
 
7) ELDERLY  


While working for an organization that delivers  lunches to elderly shut-ins, 
I used to take my  4-year-old daughter on my afternoon rounds.  She was 
unfailingly intrigued by the various appliances of old age, particularly 
the canes, walkers and  wheelchairs.   


One day I found her staring at a pair of  false teeth soaking in a glass.  
As I braced myself for the inevitable barrage of questions, she  merely 
turned and whispered, "The tooth fairy  will never believe this!" 


***********
 
8) DRESS-UP 


A little girl was watching her parents dress for a  party. When she 
saw her dad donning his tuxedo, she  warned, "Daddy, you shouldn't 
wear that suit." 


"And  why not, darling?" "You know that it always gives you  a 
headache the next morning."


***********
 
9) DEATH  


While walking along the sidewalk in front of his  church, our 
minister heard the intoning of a  prayer that nearly made his 
collar wilt.  Apparently,  his 5-year-old son and his playmates 
had found a  dead robin. 


Feeling that proper burial should be  performed, they had secured 
a small box and cotton  batting , then dug a hole and made ready 
for the disposal of the deceased.  The minister's son was  chosen 
to say the appropriate prayers and with  sonorous dignity intoned 
his version of what he  thought his father always said:  "Glory be 
unto the  Faaaather, and unto the Sonnn, and into the hole he  gooooes." 


***********
 
10) SCHOOL 


A little girl had just finished her first week of  school.  
"I'm just wasting my time," she said to her  mother .. 
"I can't read, I can't write and they won't let me talk!" 


***********
 
11) BIBLE 


A little boy opened the big family bible.  He was  fascinated 
as he fingered through the old pages.    


Suddenly, something fell out of the Bible.  He picked  up the object 
and looked at it.  What he saw was an   old leaf that had been pressed 
in between the pages   "Mama, look what I found," the boy called out. 
 ;  ; "What have you got there, dear?"   


With astonishment in the young boy's voice, he answered, 
"I think  it's  Adam's underwear. "

Men vs. Women 
====================
 
What is the difference between men and women?
 

1. A successful man is one who makes more 

money than his wife can spend. A successful 

woman is one who can find such a man.

*******

2. Men wake up as good-looking as when they 

went to bed. Women somehow deteriorate during 

the night. 

*******

3. A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he wants. A 

woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she 

doesn't want. 

******* 


4. A woman marries a man expecting he will 

change, but he doesn't. A man marries a woman 

expecting that she won't change, and she does.

*******

5. There are two times when a man doesn't 

understand a woman- before and after marriage.

*******

6. A woman worries about the future until she 

gets a husband. A man never worries about the 

future until he gets a wife. 

*******

7. To be happy with a man, you must understand 

him a lot and love him a little. To be happy 

with a woman, you must love her a lot and not 

try to understand her at all. 

*******

8. Any married man should forget his mistakes. 

There's no use in two people remembering the 

same thing!

*******

9. A woman has the last word in any argument. 

Anything a man says after that is the 

beginning of a new argument. 

*******

10. Women look at a wedding as the beginning 

of romance, while men look at a wedding as the 

ending of romance.

Why English Is So Difficult
============================
 
 
We'll begin with a box, and the plural is 

boxes;
But the plural of ox became oxen not oxes.
One fowl is a goose, but two are called geese,
Yet the plural of moose should never be meese.

You may find a lone mouse or a nest full of 

mice;
Yet the plural of house is houses, not hice.
If the plural of man is always called men,
Why shouldn't the plural of pan be called pen?

If I spoke of my foot and show you my feet,
And I give you a boot, would a pair be called 

beet?
If one is a tooth and a whole set are teeth,
Why shouldn't the plural of booth be called 

beeth?

Then one may be that, and three would be 

those,
Yet hat in the plural would never be hose, 
And the plural of cat is cats, not cose.
We speak of a brother and also of brethren,

But though we say mother we never say methren.
Then the masculine pronouns are he, his and 

him,
But imagine the feminine, she, shis and shim.

all have to go through it.
- Jerome K. Jerome



To love oneself is the beginning 
of a lifelong romance.

One advantage of marriage is 
that when you fall out of love

Obituary of the late 
Mr. Common Sense 
=====================
 
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, 
who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old 
he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. 

He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: 

Knowing when to come in out of the rain; Why the early bird gets the worm; 
Life isn't always fair; and Maybe it was my fault. 

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more 
than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). 

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing 
regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6 -year-old boy charged with sexual 
harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using 
mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student 
only worsened his condition. 

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that 
they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. 

It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to 
administer Calpol, sun lotion or a band-aid to a student; but could not inform 
parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion. 

Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; 
churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their 
victims. 

Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in 
your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault. 

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize 
that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was 
promptly awarded a huge settlement. 

Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, 
Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason. 

He is survived by his 3 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, Someone Else Is To Blame, 
and I'm A Victim. 

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still 
remember him, pass this on. 

If not, join the majority and do nothing.

Office Etiquette 
- Some Suggestions
======================



(Cellular) Mobile Phones
........................

Use your vibrating alarm feature. 
Taking a call in a restaurant is okay, but not if it is going to become 
involved. Excuse yourself and go where you won't disturb others. 
Watch your speaking volume. Folks tend to speak louder than is necessary 
on wireless phones. 
When in a meeting or even in a public place, it is best to have your 
voice mail set to receive your calls -- unless you are looking for an 
important call (Then you'd use your vibrating alarm). 
Never take a call at a public gathering such as a theater or a church. 
Get a "hands-free" kit for making and taking calls while driving. 
Stop the car to make calls if possible. 
................
Office Etiquette 
Dos and Don'ts
................

===Do====… 

Say good morning 
Say thank you 
Say please 
Be helpful 
Be friendly 
Be polite 
Seek help for anger problems 
Dress professionally 
Ask permission to enter a co-workers' space or cubicle 
Show appreciation 
Control your emotions 
Have a sense of humor 
Be courteous and show respect toward others 
Take responsibility for your mistakes 
Be helpful; ask if help is needed 
 
===Don't===… 

Talk harshly 
Condescend 
Backstab 
Gossip 
Be rude to customers 
Bad mouth the company 
Bring your personal life to work 
Take long breaks or lunches 
Say it's not your job 
Interrupt others 
Have an office romance 
Use drugs or alcohol at work 
Wear provocative clothing 
Be a chronic complainer 
 

===Taking Incoming Calls===
-----------------------------

Smile. It really shows through. 
Stand when you want to give your voice more energy. 
Always answer with the name of your company or business. If it's someone's 
office, you may use their name --Good morning. Mr. Smith's office. This is 
Mr. Jones. 
How may I direct your call? Never just say "Hello?" 
Try to answer before the third ring. 
Do not "fight back" with a rude or obnoxious caller. Your mission is to 
resolve any conflict peacefully. 
Speak distinctly. Rushing your speech, will make it harder for the listener 
to make out what your are saying. 
Transfer callers only if you are sure the person you are transferring them 
to can help them. 
Never transfer a caller without telling them you are transferring them. 
It is best to ask if you may transfer them. And always tell them to whom 
they are being transferred. 
If you must put the caller on hold, come back "at least" once a minute, 

preferrably every 30 seconds, to let the caller know what's happening. 
Offer to call them back so that they dont' have to wait

==================================
These are from a book called 
Disorder in the Courts of America, 
and are things  attorneys actually 
said in court, word for word, 
taken down and now published by 
court reporters ,who  had to 
suffer from the torment of 
staying calm while these exchanges  
were actually taking place. 
================================== 


ATTORNEY:    Now  doctor, isn't it true that when a
             person dies in his sleep, he doesn't know 
             about it until the next morning? 
WITNESS:     Did you actually pass the bar exam? 

________________________________________

ATTORNEY:    Were  you present when your picture was 
              taken?
WITNESS:      Would you repeat the  question? 

______________________________________ 

ATTORNEY:      She had three children,  right? 
WITNESS:        Yes.
ATTORNEY:      How many were  boys? 
WITNESS:        None.
ATTORNEY:      Were  there any  girls?
______________________________________ 

ATTORNEY:    How  was your first marriage terminated?
WITNESS:      By  death.
ATTORNEY:    And by whose death was it  terminated?
______________________________________

ATTORNEY:      Can you describe the  individual? 
WITNESS:        He was about medium height and had
                a beard.
ATTORNEY:   &! nbsp; Was  this a male or a  female?
______________________________________                                                                             

ATTORNEY:    Do  you recall the time that you
              examined  the body? 
WITNESS:      The  autopsy started around 8:30 p.m.
ATTORNEY:    And  Mr. Denton was dead at the time? 
WITNESS:      No, he was sitting on the table wondering
                  why I was doing an autopsy on him! 

 ______________________________________


ATTORNEY:   Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, 
did you check for a  pulse? 
WITNESS:     No.
ATTORNEY:   Did  you check for blood pressure? 
WITNESS:     No.
ATTORNEY:   Did you check for breathing?
WITNESS:     No.
ATTORNEY:   So, then it is possible that the patient 
was alive when you began the autopsy? 
WITNESS:     No.
ATTORNEY:   How can you be so sure,  Doctor? 
WITNESS:     Because his brain was sitting on my  
desk in a jar.
ATTORNEY:    But could the patient have still been  
alive, nevertheless? 
WITNESS:     Yes, it is possible that he could have 
been alive and practising law.

This,then,is LIFE 
===================================== 
God created the donkey And said to him. 
"You will be a donkey. 
You will work un-tryingly from sunrise 

to sunset carrying burdens on your back. 

You will eat grass,you will have no 

intelligence and you will live 50 

years."
The donkey answered: 
"I will be a donkey, but to live 50 

years is much. 
Give me only 20 years"
God granted his wish. 


God created the dog and said to him: 
"You will guard the house of man. 
You will be his best Friend. 

You will eat the scraps that 
he gives you and you will live 30 years.
You will be a dog. "The dog answered: 
"Sir, to live 30 years is too much, 
give me only 15 years. 
"God granted his wish. 


God created the monkey 

and said to him: 
"You will be a monkey. 
You will swing from branch to branch 

doing tricks. 
You will be amusing and you will live 20 

years.
"The monkey answered: 
"To live 20 years is too much, give me 

only 10 years." 
God granted his wish. 
 

Finally God created man 
 
And said to him: 
"You will be man, the only rational 
creature on the face of the earth. 
You will use your intelligence to become 

master over all the animals. 
You will dominate the world and you will 

live 20 years."
Man responded: 
"Sir, I will be a man but to live only 
20 years is very little, 
give me the 30 years that the donkey 

refused,the 15 years that the dog did 

not want and the 10 years the monkey 

refused.
"God granted man's wish 


 
And since then, man lives 20 years as a 

man,Marries and spends 30 years like a 

donkey,working and carrying all the 

burdens on his back.Then when his 

children are grown, he lives 15 years 

like a dog taking care of the house and 

eating whatever is given to him,so that 

when he is old,he can retire and live 10 

years like a monkey,going from house to 

house and from one son or daughter to 

another doing tricks to amuse his 

grandchildren. 

That's Life. 
Isn't it?

A is for apple, and B is for boat,

The   Alphabet

A's for arthritis;
B's the bad back,
C's the chest pains,
perhaps car-d-iac?

E is for eyesight, can't read that top 

line! 
F is for fissures and fluid retention,
G is for gas which I'd rather not 

mention.
 
 
H is high blood pressure--I'd rather it 

low;
I is for incisions with scars you can 

show.

next.
N is neuralgia, in nerves way down low;
O is for osteo, the bones that don't 

grow! 
 
 
P is for prescriptions, I have quite a 

few,
just give me a pill and I'll be good as 

new! 
Q is for queasy, is it fatal or flu?
R is for reflux, one meal turns to two.
 
S is  for sleepless nights, counting my 

fears,
T is for Tinnitus; there's bells in my 

ears!

U is for urinary; big troubles with 

flow;
V is for vertigo, that's "dizzy," you 

know.

X is for X ray, and what might be found.
Y is another year I'm left here behind,

More INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT India

A chinese and Steven Spielberg
========================================

=
One day, a Chinese walked into a bar in 

America late one night and he saw Steven 

Spielberg. 
As he was a great fan of his movies, he 

rushed over to him, and asked for his 

autograph.

Instead, Spielberg gave him a slap and 

said, "You Chinese people bombed our 

Pearl Harbor, get outta here".

The astonished Chinese man replied, "It 

was not the Chinese who bombed your 

Pearl Harbor, it was the Japanese".

"Chinese, Japanese, Taiwanese, you're 

all the same," replied Spielberg.

In return, the Chinese gave Spielberg a 

slap and said, "You sank the Titanic, my 

forefathers were on that ship".

Shocked, Spielberg replied, "It was the 

iceberg that sank the Ship, not me".

The Chinese replied, "Iceberg, 

Spielberg, Carlsberg, you're all the 

same".

Improve English Interestingly
=============================================

The European Commission has just announced 
an agreement whereby English will be the official 
language of the European Union rather than German, 
which was the other possibility. 

As part of the negotiations, the British 
Government conceded that English spelling 
had some room for improvement and has accepted 
a 5- year phase-in plan that would become 
known as "Euro-English". 

In the first year, "s" will replace the soft 
"c". Sertainly, this will make the sivil 
servants jump with joy. The hard "c" will 
be dropped in favour of "k". This should 
klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have 
one less letter. There will be growing publik 
enthusiasm in the sekond year when the 
troublesome "ph" will be replaced with 
"f". This will make words like fotograf 
20% shorter. 
 
In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the 
new spelling kan be expekted to reach the 
stage where! more komplikated changes are 
possible. 

Governments will enkourage the removal of 
double letters which have always ben a 
deterent to akurate speling. 

Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of 
the silent "e" in the languag is disgrasful 
and it should go away. 

By the 4th yer people wil be reseptiv to 
steps such as 
replasing "th" with "z" and "w" with "v". 

During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary "o" kan 
be dropd from vords kontaining "ou" and 
after ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a reil 
sensi bl riten styl. 

Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis 
and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand 
ech oza. Ze drem of a united urop vil 
finali kum tru. 

Und efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be 
speking German like zey vunted in ze 
forst plas. 

If zis mad you smil, pleas pas on to

==========================
New Rules For The Office 
- Effective Immediately!
========================= 

SICK DAYS: 
We will no longer accept a doctor statement 
as proof of sickness. If you are able to go 
to the doctor, you are able to come to work. 

SURGERY: 
Operations are now banned. As long as you 
are an employee here, you need all your organs. 
You should not consider removing anything. 
We hired you intact. To have something 
removed constitutes a breach of employment. 

DRESS CODE: 
It is advised that you come to work dressed 
according to your salary, if we see you 
wearing $350 Prada sneakers & carrying a 
$600 Gucci bag, we assume you are doing 
well financially and therefore you do 
not need a raise. 

PERSONAL DAYS: 
Each employee will receive 104 personal 
days a year. They are called Saturday & 
Sunday. 

VACATION DAYS: 
All employees will take their vacation 
at the same time every year. The vacation 
days are as follows: Jan. 1, July 4 & 
Dec. 25 

BEREAVEMENT LEAVE: 
This is no excuse for missing work. 
There is nothing you can do for dead 
friends, relatives or coworkers. 
Every effort should be made to have 
non-employees attend to the arrangements. 
In rare cases where employee involvement 
is necessary, the funeral should be 
scheduled in the late afternoon. We 
will be glad to allow you to work 
through your lunch hour and subsequently 
leave one hour early, provided your 
share of the work is done enough. 

OUT FROM YOUR OWN DEATH: 
This will be accepted as an excuse. 
However, we require at least two weeks 
notice as it is your duty to train your 
own replacement. 

RESTROOM USE: 
Entirely too much time is being spent 
in the restroom. In the future, we will 
follow the practice of going in 
alphabetical order. For instance, 
all employees whose names begin with 
'A will go from8 to 8:20, employees 
whose names begin with 'B' will go 
from 8:20to 8:40 and so on. If you're 
unable to go at your allotted time, 
it will be necessary to wait until 
the next day when your turn comes 
again. In extreme emergencies employees 
may swap their time with a coworker. 
Both employees' supervisors in writing 
must approve this exchange. 

LUNCH BREAK: 
Skinny people get an hour for lunch as 
they need to eat more so that they can 
look healthy, normal size people get 30 
minutes for lunch to get a balance meal 
to maintain their average figure. Fat 
people get 5 minutes for lunch because 
that's all the time needed to drink a 
Slim Fast & take a diet pill. 

Thank you for your loyalty to our company. 
We are here to provide a positive 
employment experience

Lessons of Failure 
===================================== 
 
Failure doesn' mean I'm a failure;
It does mean I have not yet succeeded. 
 
Failure doesn't mean I've accomplished 
nothing;
It does mean I've learned something. 
 
Failure doesn't mean I've been a fool;
It does mean I'd enough faith to 
experiment. 
 
Failure doesn't mean I've disgraced;
It does mean I've dared to try. 
 
Failure doesn't mean I don't have it;
It does mean I've something to do in 
a different way. 
 
Failure doesn't mean I'm inferior;
It does mean I ain't perfect. 
 
Failure doesn't mean I've wasted my 
life;
It does mean that I've an excuse to 
start over. 
 
Failure doesn't mean that I should 
give up;
It does mean that I should try harder. 
 
Failure doesn't mean that I'll never 
make it;
It does mean that I need more practice. 
 
Failure doesn't mean that you've 
abandoned me;
It does mean that you must have a 
better idea.
 
*May Allah Almighty help u succeed!

LOVE VS MARRIAGE
=================

LOVE is holding hands in the street, 

MARRIAGE is holding arguments in the 
street. 

LOVE is dinner for two in your favourite 
restaurant,MARRIAGE is a take home packet.

LOVE is cuddling on a sofa,
MARRIAGE is one of them sleeping on a sofa.

LOVE is talking about having children,
MARRIAGE is talking about getting away 
from children.

LOVE is going to bed early,
MARRIAGE is going to sleep early.

LOVE is a romantic drive,
MARRIAGE is a drive on a topsy turvy tarmac.

LOVE is whispering sweet nothings in the ear,
MARRIAGE is sweet nothing in the bank.

TV has no place in LOVE.
MARRIAGE is a fight for the remote control.

LOVE is one drink n two straws,
MARRIAGE is "Don't you think you have had 
enough

=======================
Never Never Again !!!!!
===========================================

On Wednesday, April 5, 2006, 
at two minutes and three seconds 
after 1:00 AM in the 
morning, 
the time and date was read

01:02:03  04/05/06

This will never happen again

============================================

==========================
THIS IS B_O_M_B_A_Y
==============================================

Bombay has no bombs and is a harbour not a bay.

Churchgate has neither a church nor a gate. 
It is a railway station.

There is no darkness in Andheri.


Lalbaag is neither red nor a garden.

No king ever stayed at Kings Circle.

Nor did Queen Victoria stay at 
Victoria Terminus.

Nor is there any princess at Princess street.

Lower Parel is at the same level as Parel

There are no marines or sailors at Marine Lines.

The Mahalaxmi temple is at Haji Ali not at
Mahalaxmi.

Teen bati is a junction of 3 roads, 
not three lamps.

Trams used to terminate at Kings circle 
not Dadar*Tram Terminus (Dadar T.T.).

Breach Candy is not a sweetmeat market.

Safed Pool has the dirtiest and blackest water.

You cannot buy coal at Kolsa street.

There are no Iron smiths at Lohar chawl.

There are no pot makers at Kumbhar wada.

Lokhandwala complex is not an Iron and steel market.

Null bazaar does not sell Nal [taps].

You will not find ladyfingers at Bheendi Bazaar.

Kalachowki does not have a black Police station.

Hanging Gardens are not suspended.

Mirchi Gully does not sell marachu [chillies].

Anjir [Figs] does not grow in Anjir Wadi,

Sitafals do not grow in Sitafal Wadi,

Fanas [Jackfruits] do not grow at Fanaswadi

But it is true that you may get fleeced at Chor
Bazaar!!! 

AAMCHI MUMBAI
==============
A City where everything is possible. Especially the
impossible.

Where lovers first love and then marry, 
Where there is place for every Tom,Dick and Harry
Where telephone bills make a person ill, 
Where a person cannot sleep without a pill.
Where carbon-dioxide is more than oxygen,
Where the road is considered to be a dustbin,
Where college canteens are full and classes empty,
Where Adam teasing is also making an entry,
Where a cycle reaches faster than a car,
Where everyone thinks himself to be a star,
Where sky scrapers overlook the slums,
Where houses collapse as the monsoon comes,
Where people first act and then think, 
Where there is more water in the pen than ink,
Where the roads see-saw in monsoon, 
Where the beggars become rich soon,
Where roads get a level upon minister's arrival.
Where college admission means hard cash,
Where cement is frequently mixed with ash.
This is 
Mumbai, 
My dear!
But don't fear, 
Just cheer,
Come to Mumbai every year!

(stupid, break the law) ===============End=================== ===================== Wonder Fool Full ===================== Archeologist: someone whose carreer lies in ruins. A real friend is someone who takes a winter vacation on a sun-drenched beach and does not send a card. (Farmer's Almanac) A real patriot is someone who gets a parking ticket and rejoices that the system works. A relationship is like sand in your hand. If held loosely in the palm of your hand it stays there, but as soon as you close your hand tightly it slips through your fingers. A relationship is like that held tenderly with respect for the other person it last, but once you close your hand to hold on tightly it slips through your fingers. A religion that is small enough for us to understand would not be large enough for our needs. A retired husband is a wife's full time job. Are you fuel for your job or is your job fuel for you. (Prof. Preston Bottger) Are you living for the things you are praying for? (Austin Phelps) Are you wrinkled with burden? Come onto Church for a FAITH LIFT! A rich person is not the one who has the most, but the one who needs the least. A rookie cop was asked the following question on an examination: "How would you go about dispersing a crowd?" He answered: "Take up an offering. That does it every time." A rose can say I Love You. . . orchids can enthrall. . . but a weed bouquet in a chubby fist. . . OH MY that says it all! Artichokes are like humans: you have to go through so much to get to the heart. (Kathy Good) Art is work, to sell it is art. A rumor is as hard to unspread as butter. As a computer, I find your faith in technology amusing. A sad Texan once prayed, "Lord, I wish you would make it rain - not so much for me, I've seen it - but for my 7-year-old." As a man begins to live more seriously within; he begins to live more simply without. As a rule, Man's a fool. When it's hot, He wants it cool. And when it's cool, He wants it hot, Always wanting What is not. A scientist knows more & more about less & less till he knows everything about nothing while a philosopher knows less & less about more & more till he knows nothing about everything. A seafood diet is the best: whenever you see food, eat it. A seminar on time travel will be held in two weeks ago. A sharp tongue and a dull mind are usually found in the same head. A ship in harbour is safe, but that is not what ships are built for. (John A. Shedd) A signature always reveals a man's character... and sometimes even his name. A single death is a tragedy; a million deaths is a statistic. A single reason why you can do something is worth 100 reasons why you can't. A sinning man will stop praying. A praying man will stop sinning. As intelligence increases speach decreases. (Ali bin Abi Talib) As I said before, I never repeat myself. Ask a question and you're a fool for three minutes; do not ask a question and you're a fool for the rest of your life. (Chinese proverb) Asking the boss for a rise may not be patriotic, but it will help the government with the extra tax if it comes off. Ask yourself if what you are doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow. As long as there are tests, there will be prayer in schools. As long as you don't forgive, who and whatever it is will occupy rent-free space in your mind. (Isabelle Holland) As long as you put in the work, you can own the dream. When the work stops, the dream disappears. (Jim Dietz) A smart husband buys his wife very fine china so she won't trust him to wash it. A smile is a curve that sets things straight. A smile is a fortune, but you can't sell it, you can't buy it and you can't steal it, but it isn't good to anyone until it is given away. A smile is the cheapest way to improve your looks, even if your teeth are crooked. A smile is the lighting system of the face, the cooling system of the head and the heating system of the heart. A smile on your face can be felt on anothers heart. (Rhonda Marlow) A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner. (English Proverb "As often as you eat this bread and drink this cup" (today) "you proclaim my death" (yesterday) "until I come again." (future) Aspire to inspire before you expire. A spoonful of honey will catch more flies than a gallon of vinegar. (Benjamin Franklin) A stand can be made against invasion of an army; no stand can be made against invasion of an idea. A statesman shears the sheep. A politician skins them. A status symbol is a symbol, not status. A stone thrown at the right time is better than gold given at the wrong time. (Persian proverb) A student writes a letter via telegram to his Dad . . . It goes . . . no fun, send mon, your Son! Dad write back saying . . . so sad, too bad, your Dad! A sweater is usually put on a child when the parent feels chilly. A synonym is a word you use in place of one you can't spell. At age 20 we worry about what others think of us. At 40 we don't care what they think of us. At 60 we discover they haven't been thinking of us at all. (Ann Landers) A talent is formed in stillness, a character in the world's torrent. At a party, a woman walked up to Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the United States, and said, "My husband bet me I couldn't get three words out of you." Coolidge replied, "You lose." A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops. (Henry Adams) A teacher asked her students if they could use the words 'defeat, defense, and detail' in a sentence. Little Johnny was a smartly, so he answered with, " De feet of de dog went over de fence before de tail." A teacher observed a boy entering the classroom with dirty hands. She stopped him and said, "Johnny, please wash your hands. My goodness, what would you say if I came into the room with hands like that?" With a smile the boy replied, "I think I'd be too polite to mention it." A teacher was winding up a discussion in her fourth grade class on the importance of curiosity. Teacher: "Where would we be today if no one had ever been curious?" Child: "In the Garden of Eden?" A tear shed can say more than a hundred words spoken. A teenage girl had been talking on the phone for about half an hour, and then she hung up. "Wow!" said her father, "That was short. You usually talk for two hours. What happened?" "Wrong number..." replied the girl. At every party there are two kinds of people: those who want to go home and those who don't. The trouble is, they are usually married to each other. (Ann Landers) A three year old put his shoes on by himself. His mother noticed the left was on the right foot. She said: "Son, your shoes are on the wrong feet." He looked up at her with a raised brow and said:"Don't kid me, Mom. I know they're my feet." A tree never hits an automobile except in self-defense. A true friend reaches for your hand and touches your heart. A true friend walks in when the world walks out. A truth spoken before its time is dangerous. At the evening service tonight, the sermon topic will be "What is hell? Come early and listen to our choir practice. Attitude might not catch fish, but it helps when you don't. Attitude must be an art because it draws, and not a science because it can't be measured. A twofold national problem is how to preserve the wilderness in the country and get rid of the jungle in the cities. At work, the authority of a person is inversely proportional to the number of pens that person is carrying. "Automatic" simply means that you can't repair it yourself. Autopsy is a dying practice. A verbal contract isn't worth the paper it's written on. A vibration is a motion that can't make up its mind which way it wants to go. A weird thing about humans is we work till we're sick to get a fortune, then pay a fortune to get well again. A wife is a person who can look in the top drawer of a dresser and find a man's handkerchief that isn't there. A winner says, "There must be a better way to do it". A loser says, "This is the way it has always been done here". A wise enemy is still safer than a fool friend. A wise man among the ignorant is as a beautiful girl in the company of blind men. (Saadi, Persian poet) A wise man gets more use from his enemies than a fool from his friends. (Baltasar Gracian) A wise man may look ridiculous in the company of fools. (Thomas Fuller) A wise man sees as much as he should, not as much as he can. A wise person escapes temptation and leaves no forwarding address. A wise person has something to say, a fool has to say something. A wise schoolteacher sends this note to all parents on the first day of school: "If you promise not to believe everything your child says happens at school, I'll promise not to believe everything he says happens at home." A 'wish' changes nothing. A 'decision' changes everything! A woman never shot a man while he was doing dishes. A woman's greatest power is her vulnerability. A woman's heart is like a campfire; if you don't tend it often the flame will go out. (Willie M. Lawrence) A word gets its meaning by the person who speaks it. A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success. A year spent in artificial intelligence is enough to make one believe in God. A young boy about five or six years was talking on the telephone. As his dad listened on, the youngster told his grandparents dejectedly, "Mom is in the hospital, so the twins and Roxie, Billy, Sally, the dog, and me and Dad are all home alone." A young lawyer, just out of Law School, was pleading his first case in South Carolina. A train had killed twenty-four pigs, and the young attorney was trying to impress the jury with the magnitude of the injury. "Yes, Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, twenty-four pigs. Imagine, twenty-four pigs. Twice the number there are in the jury box." A young minister sitting down to dinner was about to say Grace when he opened the casserole dish that his thrifty bride had prepared from countless refrigerator leftovers. "I don't know," he said dubiously. "It seems to me that we've blessed all this stuff before." A young person knows the rules but the old person knows the exceptions. ==============END=================== ==================================== Very Interesting To READ AND RE_READ ==================================== Karl Marx's Mother: If Karl, instead of writing a lot about capital, had made a lot of it ... it would have been much better. Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you too, can become great. (Mark Twain) Keep eye on many, but thoughts on one. Shake hands with many, but give your heart to one. Keep your head and your heart in the right direction and you will not have to worry about your feet. Keep your head in the clouds.. you're the first to know when it rains, and it's easier to see the silver lining. Keep your eyes wide open before marriage, half shut afterwards. (Benjamin Franklin) Kids need love the most when they're acting most unlovable. (Erma Bombeck) Killing time murders opportunities. Kindness: a language the deaf can hear, the blind can see, and the mute can speak. Kindness has converted more sinners, than zeal, eloquence or learning. (F. W. Faber) Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless. (Mother Teresa) Kisses are like tears, the only real ones are the ones you can't hold back. Knowing is not enough; We must Apply. Willing is not enough; We must Do. (Goethe) Knowing what to say is not always necessary; just the presence of a caring friend can make a world of difference. (Sheri Curry) Knowing without doing is like plowing without sowing. Knowledge is of two kinds: we know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it. (Samuel Johnson) Knowledge is that which is acquired by learning. Wisdom is knowing what to do with it? Knowledge of God can be fully given to man only in a Person, never in a doctrine. Faith is not the holding of correct doctrine, but personal fellowship with the living God. (William Temple 1881-1944) Knowledge speaks, wisdom listens. Language is the dress of thought. (Johnson) Last night I dreamed my life was done, and heaven's gates flung wide. And with kindly grace, an angel ushered me inside. And there stood those I'd shunned or judged unworthy or unclean. Indignant words rose to my lips, but never were set free, On every face showed stunned surprise: no one expected me. Laughing at our mistakes can lengthen our own life. Laughing at someone else's can shorten it! Laughter is like changing a baby's diaper. It doesn't permanently solve any problems, but it makes thing more acceptable for awhile. Laughter is the brush that sweeps away the cobwebs of the heart. Laughter is the jam on the toast of life; it adds flavour, keeps it from becoming too dry, and makes it easier to swallow. Laws are like sausages. It's better not to see them being made. (Otto von Bismarck 1815-1898 German chancellor) Lawyer (n): Larval stage of Politician. Lazy ness is the only luxury that not even a millionaire can afford. Leaders help others to succeed. (Erin Templet) Leadership is an opportunity to serve. It is not a trumpet call to self importance. Leadership is the ability to get men to do what they don't want to do and like it. (Harry S. Truman) Learn from other people's mistakes, life isn't long enough to make them all yourself. Learn from the past Live for today Look for tomorrow Take a nap this afternoon Learning history is easy. Learning its lessons is almost impossible. Learning is forging a head. Thinking is foraging a head. Learn to listen, opportunity often knocks softly. Learn to say no. It will be of more use to you than to be able to read Latin. (Charles Haddon Spurgeon) Leave loved ones always with loving words. It may be the last time you see them. Let me give so much time to the improvement of myself that I shall have no time to criticize others. (Dean Cresham) Let nature take its course and hope it passes. Let our advance worrying become advance thinking and planning. (Sir Winston Churchill) Let perseverance be your engine and hope your fuel. (H. Jackson Brown Jr.) Lets face it, the world would be a boring place without oppressive governments. If we were free to do or say whatever we wanted, it wouldn't be exciting to do or say anything. (James Maverick Cook) Let us realize that the privilege to work is a gift, that power to work is a blessing, that love of work is success. (David O. McKay) Let us so live that when we die even the undertaker will be sorry. (Mark Twain) Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards. (Soren Kierkegaard 1813-1855) Life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% of how you respond to it. Life is a comedy for those who think and a tragedy for those who feel. Life is a grindstone. Whether it grinds you down or polishes you up, depends upon what you're made of. Life is an echo. What you send out - you get back. What you give - you get. Life is a roller coaster. You can either scream every time you hit a bump or you can throw your hands up in the air and enjoy it. Life is a waste of time, time is a waste of life, so get wasted all the time and have the time of your life. Life is fragile ... handle with prayer. Life is full of surprises. Just say "never" and you'll see. Life is hard, no one makes it out alive. Life is like a box of chocolates; you never know when you'll find a nut. Life is like a game of cards. The hand that is dealt you represents determinism; the way you play it is free will. (Jawaharlal Nehru) Life is like a game of tennis; the player who serves well seldom loses. Life is like a grammar lesson. You find the past perfect and the present tense. Life is like a ladder, the higher you climb, the more expansive your view is. (Taimi Megivern) Life is like a mirror, if you frown at it, it frowns back; if you smile, it returns the greeting. Life is like an onion. You peel it off layer by layer and sometimes you cry. Life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer you get to the end the faster it goes. Life is mostly froth and bubble; Two things stand like stone: Kindness in another's trouble, Courage in our own. Life is much like writing in ink : All you can do is read over your past and look forward to a blank page for your future that will soon be filled with words that can never be erased. (Gabe Suico) Life is not fair, but life is not fair for everyone. That makes life fair. Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. Life is really a bed of roses, others are just lucky to have friends to help them pick the thorns off. Life is so much simpler when you tell the truth. Life is the first gift, love is the second, and understanding the third. Life is too short to long for money. Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans. (John Lennon) Life is what you have while you are waiting to have one. Life itself cannot give you joy unless you really will it. Life just gives you time and space. Its up to you to fill it. Life just gives you time & space; it's up to you to fill it. Life without you would be like a broken pencil... Pointless. (Rowan Atkinson) Like all great travelers, I have seen more than I remember; and I remember more than I have seen. Listening and hearing are two different senses. Listen or thy tongue will keep thee deaf. (American Indian Proverb) Little birdie in the sky, dropped a poopie in my eye I didn't scream, I didn't cry, But I thanked the Lord cows can't fly! Little differences - like a letter in a word - make all the difference in the world. Little Johnny's new baby brother was crying and screaming up a storm. He asked his mom, "Where'd baby brother come from?" His mother replied, "Heaven, Johnny. He came from heaven." After listening to his baby brother's wailing for another few seconds Johnny shot back, "WOW! I can see why they threw him out" Live by what you trust, not by what you fear. Live each day as if it were your last, but learn from each day as if you will live forever. Live for God now and spend the rest of eternity in the non-smoking section. Live so that you wouldn't be ashamed to sell the family parrot to the town gossip. (Will Rogers) Live without pretending, Love without depending, Listen without defending, Speak without offending, Give without ending, Build without rending. (Nina Roberta Baker) Live your life from your heart. Share from your heart. And your story will touch and heal people's souls. (Melody Beattie) Live your own life, for you will die your own death Nature's laws are the invisible government of the earth. (Alfred Armand Montapert) Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power. (Abraham Lincoln) Need some time to be alone, try washing the dishes! Never apologize for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologize for the truth. (Benjamin Disraeli) Never argue with a stupid person. First they'll drag you down to their level, then they will beat you with experience. Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark, professionals built the Titanic. Never confuse having a career with having a life. Never drive faster than your guardian angel can fly. Never fear shadows... they simply mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby. Never interrupt your opponent while he is making a mistake (Napoleon Bonaparte) Never let a problem become an excuse! Never mistake motion with action. (Albert Einstein) Never overlook wallflower at dance; may be dandelion in grass. (Confucious) Never run from your fears. Because when they catch up to you you're too tired to fight. Never say anything unless it is kind, necessary and true. Never seek the wind in the field. It is useless to try and find what is gone. (Polish proverb) Never stand between a dog and a tree. Never take counsel of your fears. (Andrew Jackson) Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity. (General George S. Patton, Jr) Never try to make anyone like yourself. You know, and God knows, that one of you is enough. (Ralph Waldo Emerson) Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups. Never wrestle with a pig. You both get all dirty, and the pig likes it. New and improved: if it's new it's not improved; if it's improved it's not new. New friends are silver, old friends are gold. Always make new friends but don't forget the old. Next to the originator of a good sentence is the first quoter of it. (Emerson) No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. (Fables Aesop) No amount of darkness can hide a spark of light. No answer is also an answer. Nobody can be exactly like me. Even I have trouble doing it. (Tallulah Bankhead) Nobody is perfect.... I am Nobody!!! Nobody plans to fail, they just fail to plan. No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. (Aesop) No God - No Peace. Know God - Know Peace. No happy time is really gone, if it leaves a special memory. No horse goes as fast as the money you bet on him. No individual raindrop ever considers itself responsible for the flood. No God - No Love. Know God - Know Love. No life without the sun, no Life without the Son. No man ever injured his eyesight by looking on the bright side of things. No man ever repented on his deathbed of being a Christian. (Hannah Moore) No man is a failure who has friends. (Clarence) No man is rich enough to buy back his past. (Oscar Wilde) No man is too big to be kind...but many men are too little. (Matt Maguire) No man really becomes a fool until he stops asking questions. No matter how far you have gone on a wrong road, turn back. (Turkish proverb) No matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that. No matter what happens Today. You must remember that...Today will be Tomorrow's past, and Tomorrow will be Today. (Patty Satjapot) No matter what you want to do, there's always something else that has to be done first. No moving parts, no batteries. No monthly payments and no fees. Inflation proof, non-taxable, in fact it's quite reliable. It can't be stolen, won't pollute, one size fits all, do not dilute. It uses little energy, but yields results enormously. Relieves your tension and your stress, invigorates your happiness. Combats depression, makes you beam and elevates your self esteem. Your circulation it corrects without complicated side effects. It is, I think, the perfect drug. May I prescribe, my friend. . . . . . the hug! Non-smoking area: If we see you smoking we will assume you are on fire and take appropriate action. No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. (Eleanor Roosevelt) No one ever injured his eyesight by looking on the bright side of things. No one is listening until you make a mistake. No one is responsible for all the things that happen to him, but he is responsible for the way he acts when they do happen. No one plans to fail but people can fail to plan. No one should live by the early bird policy without finding out whether he classifies as a bird or a worm. No one would remember the good Samaritan if he had only good intentions. He had money as well. (Margaret Thatcher) No prayer is spoken too softly to be heard. (Natasha Isabelle) No sense being pessimistic. It wouldn't work anyway. Nostalgia isn't what it used to be. Not being beautiful was the true blessing. Not being beautiful forced me to develop my inner resources. The pretty girl has a handicap to overcome. (Golda Meir) Note on a door: Out to lunch; if not back by five, out for dinner also. Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts. (Sign hanging in Albert Einstein's office at Princeton) Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced. (James Baldwin) Nothing is as soft as water, yet who can withstand the raging flood? (Lao Ma) Nothing is as strong as gentleness: nothing so gentle as real strength. (Ralph W. Sockman) Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely. (Rodin) Nothing is really work unless you would rather be doing something else. Nothing seems expensive on credit. (Czech Proverb) Nothing seems impossible for the man who doesn't have to do it himself. Nothing seems to bring on an emergency as quickly as putting money aside in case of one. Nothing shows a man's character more than what he laughs at. (Goethe) Nothing tastes as good as slim feels. Notice: The only person getting his work done by Friday was Robinson Crusoe. Not our activity for Him but our captivity to Him! Nowadays we are consumed by desires to buy things we do not need, with money we do not have, to impress people we do not like. (Patrick M. Morley) Now is no time to think of what you do not have. Think of what you can do with what there is. (Ernest Hemingway) Quotes Flowers need sunshine, violets need dew, all angels in heaven know I need u. Years may fly, tears may dry, but my friendship with u will never die. One day u will ask me: What is more important to you, me or your life? I will say: my life! You will walk away from me without knowing that U R MY LIFE!!! Feel good when somebody misses u. Feel better when somebody loves u. But feel best when somebody never forgets u. A friend is sweet when its new!! But it is sweeter when its TRUE! But u know what? Its sweetest when its you. A friend gives hope when life is low, a friend is a place when you have nowhere to go. A friend is honest, a friend is true. A friend is precious.....A friend is u. If kisses were water, I will give u sea. If hugs were leaves, I will give u a tree. If u love a planet, I will give u a galaxy. If friendship is life I will give u mine. If I were to be anything in this world.....I'd be ur tears!!!? So, I can be conceived in ur heart, born in ur eyes, live on ur cheeks & die on ur lips!!!!! If u r a chocolate.....ur the sweetest. If u r a teddy bear.... u r the most huggable. If u are a star....u r the brightest, and since u r my FRIEND....u r the BEST!!!!!!!!! A special friend is rare indeed, it seems to be special breed. Yes, perfect friends r very few, so lucky I'm for having you. They say it takes a minute 2 fine a special person, an hour 2 appreciate them, a day 2 love them, but then an entire life 2 forget them. When God opened the window of the Heaven, he asked me: What is your wish for today? I said: please take special care of the person reading this!!!!!!! Time might lead me to nowhere and faith might break into pieces but I will always be THANKFUL that once in my life journey we became FRIENDS! It takes half our life to find true friends & half of it keeping them. I am lucky to have spent less than half my life finding you & wish to spend the rest keeping you. In my life I learned how 2 love, 2 smile, 2 be happy, 2 be strong, 2 work hard, 2 be honest, 2 be faithful, 2 forgive but I couldn't learn how.. 2 stop remembering u. A memory lasts forever, and never does it die. True friends stay together and never say good bye.

No body can discover new oceans,until he has the courage to lose sight of the shore. ===============END=================== ================== GREAT THINKING ================== Anger is a condition in which the tongue works faster than the mind. You can't change the past, but you can ruin the present by worrying over the future. Love...and you shall be loved. God always gives His best to those who leave the choice with Him. All people smile in the same language. Everyone needs to be loved... especially when they do not deserve it. The real measure of a man's wealth is what he has invested in eternity. Laughter is God's sunshine. Everyone has beauty but not everyone sees it. It's important for parents to live the same things they teach. Thank God for what you have, TRUST GOD for what you need. If you fill your heart with regrets of yesterday and the worries of tomorrow, you have no today to be thankful for. Man looks at outward appearance but the Lord looks within. The choice you make today will usually affect tomorrow. Take time to laugh, for it is the music of the soul. Patience is the ability to idle your motor when you feel like stripping your gears. Love is strengthened by working through conflicts together. Harsh words break no bones but they do break hearts. To get out of a difficulty, one usually must go through it. We take for granted the things that we should be giving thanks for. Love is the only thing that can be divided without being diminished. Happiness is enhanced by others but does not depend upon others. For every minute you are angry with someone,you lose 60 seconds of happiness that you can never get back. Do what you can, for who you can, with what you have, and where you are ===========END================= =================== LONG LIVE BACHELORS ==================== Every man should get married some time; after all,happiness is not the only thing in life!! ------------------------------------- Bachelors should be heavily taxed.

Be generous to someone and see how great it makes you feel. Have you been treated rudely, or been the victim of greedy manipulation? Be generous to someone and see how quickly you get beyond that bitter, negative mind-set. Want to make this a really great day? Then spend it taking advantage of opportunities to give of yourself to others. You don't need to have a lot of money or spare time or expertise in order to be generous. There are opportunities for sincere generosity in every situation, all day long. With an attitude of generosity, the experience of life will rise to a higher level of richness and beauty. Each moment lived with generosity will be a moment lived with real and lasting joy. Give of yourself. And be amazed at how very much real value you receive Dec.7,2005. ===============END=================== ======================= Nature and Good Health ======================= Nobody can be in good health if he does not have all the time fresh air, sunshine, and good water. --Chief Flying Hawk Before this part of the world was colonized by Europeans, native Americans thrived here, living in wigwams and teepees, spending their time in the fresh air and sun, and drinking pure, fresh water from springs, streams, and rivers. They lived long, healthy lives and almost never were sick--precisely because they knew how important the natural elements were. When we feel depressed or nervous, nature is a good listener. We can take a walk in the sun, listen to the small birds, or twigs cracking under our feet, or simply the sound of our shoes on the pavement. We don't need to live in teepees to follow the Indians' example today. But getting out in the sunshine and fresh air every day, even on really cold days, rejuvenates us. Sunlight is healing, fresh air cleanses our lungs and brings more oxygen to the blood and brain. When we think enough of ourselves to take a walk when we need it, even that small amount of self-consideration is also healing.

"You will be a donkey. You will work un-tiringly from sunrise to sunset carrying burdens on your back. You will eat grass, you will have no intelligence and you will live 50 years." The donkey answered: "I will be a donkey, but to live 50 years is much. Give me only 20 years" God granted his wish. ........ God created the dog and said to him: "You will guard the house of man. You will be his best Friend. You will eat the scraps that he gives you and you will live 30 years. You will be a dog. " The dog answered: "Sir, to live 30 years is too much,give me only 15 years. God granted his wish. .......... God created the monkey and said to him: "You will be a monkey. You will swing from branch to branch doing tricks. You will be amusing and you will live 20 years. " The monkey answered: "To live 20 years is too much, give me only 10 years." God granted his wish. ....... Finally God created man and said to him: "You will be man, the only rational creature on the face of the earth. You will use your intelligence to become master over all the animals. You will dominate the world and you will live 20 years." Man responded: "Sir, I will be a man but to live only 20 years is very little, give me the 30 years that the donkey refused, the 15 years that the dog did not want and the 10 years the monkey refused. " God granted man's wish ......... And since then, man lives 20 years as a man,marries and spends 30 years like a donkey, working and carrying all the burdens on his back. Then when his children are grown, he lives 15 years like a dog taking care of the house and eating whatever is given to him, so that when he is old, he can retire and live 10 years like a monkey, going from house to house and from one son or daughter to another doing tricks to amuse his grandchildren. That's Life. Is'nt it? Dec.2,2005 ========END========== ======= Wholeness ====================== Do something positive and valuable in one area of your life, and every other part of your life will benefit from it. The joy you create and experience in one setting will go with you into other situations. By the same token, any negativity in one part of your life will exert unfavorable influence on other parts of your life. Everything that is a part of you is a part of all of you. When you work to improve your skill at one task, it brings added confidence to all other tasks that you undertake. When you nurture a true sense of peace in your home life, your life at work becomes more calm and peaceful as well. No single part of you can be separated from the wholeness of who you are. Each thought, each action, each feeling is connected to all others. Your health, your career, your family, your faith, your learning, your interests and enjoyments are all intertwined with each other. And as such, you always have countless specific opportunities to nurture and lift up the whole of your life. Give your very best to each and every aspect of your life. An abiding sense of excellence and integrity will add much to the whole of your world =========End========== ============= The Richest India i.e. Bharat i.e. Hindustan ============= Do you know that India is the richest country in the world! Right now, India is the richest country in the world! Wondering how? It's really amazing. It's due to Mr. G Vaidyaraj, who donated all his wealth, about which he actually did not know. He is a descendent of Raja Krishnadev Raya from Mysore district. For the last 300 years or so, three stones were worshipped in his house.But nobody tried to see what it was, except this person, who is a lawyer by profession.One day, when there was nobody in his house, he took the stone out to see what it was that they worship. Due to the dust deposited on it, from many many years, it looked only like a simple stone. But when he touched it, some portion of the stone was cleansed. And he saw a bright ray of light. He saw something which attracted his attention. And he was amazed when he cleaned all of them.The whole room was filled with light. He discovered they were diamonds of about 4600 carats each. He informed the Govt. of India and the news is censored with its security. It's now deposited in a Swiss Bank. The cost of single diamond exceeds the GDP of USA + UK. India can buy virtually 7 developing nations. Even World Bank does not have enough money to buy it. One diamond costs thrice the debt of World Bank over India . One such diamond can buy 10 Bill Gates to you. And the World Bank has proposed the Indian Govt. that it can pay India in Installment if it wishes to do so. India's GDP is 34.25 billion dollars. Bill Gates pro! perty is 95 billion dollars approximate so that is the way "nature changes". Our Prime Minister has refused to sell it. He said it will be sold or mortgaged for credit when we need it. Otherwise right now we have no problems. You can go through Times of India with a small column on it a week ago. Star TV presented a 115 min documentary on it about 15 days ago. The Hindu with its half page article in it. After that it was censored as classified. Another good news is that in the Desert of Thar a deposit of Oil and Natural gas have been found. This stores what Kuwait has in its stomach. India can go with this ONGC energy reserve with another 30 years. And moreover it can export it to other counties. It's incredible!! But true. An Indian boy in his 12th standard has disproved Einstein's "Theory of Relativity". Shocked? Read on... Sudarshan Reddy has theoretically proven the existence of a subatomic particle, which can travel at speed greater than that of light, thereby challenging one of the fundamental postulates of the "Theory of Relativity". In his recent research paper submitted to the Institute of Advanced Physics (IAP) at Trieste (Italy), Sudarshan has proved the existence of a class of subatomic particles called "leptons", which can travel faster than light. The international physics community is shocked by this discovery. Dr.Massimo Martelli, President of the IAP has this to say about the paper submitted by Sudarshan. "After long, careful and critical analysis, I can confidently say that Sudarshan's re search papers show tremendous leap in our understanding of physics. His investigation mounts up on "leptons". His work builds substantially on the work of Einstein and others in the field of relativity." When physicists from Princeton University tried to measure Sudarshan's IQ with an IQmeter (at the American Embassy in Delhi), the meter broke down. Sudarshan, incidentally, is the brother of Madhu Reddy, the Indian whiz kid who developed an operating system superior to Microsoft Windows. We should all be very proud of these boys. =========End============ ================== Einstein's Real Theories ================== Einstein's Theory of Junkfood E = MC (Donald's) Einstein's Theory of Boybands E = MC (Fly) Einstein's Theory of Rappers E = MC (Hammer) Einstein's Theory of Music E = F (flat) Einstein's theory of Cricket E=MC(C) Einstein's theory of Parks E=MC(Arthur) Einsteins's Theory of Theatre E = MC (Beth) Einstein's Theory of Biscuits E = MC (Vities) Einstein's Theory of Tessellating Patterns E = MC (Escher) Einstein's Theory of Pastoral Farming E = MC (Donald) Einstein's Theory of Motor Racing E = MC (Laren) Einstein's theory of Raining Computers E = MC (intosh) Einstein's theory of Bright Coloured Birds E = MC (aws) Einstein's theory of Oily Fish E = MC (eral) Nov,16,2005 =========End============== =============== Humor from Great Minds ======================== ?As you get older three things happen.

Birthdays are good for you: the more you have the longer you live. How long a minute is depends on what side of the bathroom door you're on. I have noticed that the people who are late are often so much jollier than the people who have to wait for them. If ignorance is bliss, why aren't more people happy? Most of us go to our grave with our music still inside of us. If Wal-Mart is lowering prices every day, how come nothing in the store is free yet? You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person. Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once. Don't cry because it's over; smile because it happened. We could learn a lot from crayons: some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names, and all are different colors ...but they all have to learn to live in the same box. Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler. A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

There I saw you with your cute circular face,conical nose and spherical eyes, standing in your triangular garden. Before seeing you my heart was a null set, but when a vector of magnitude (likeness) from your eyes at a deviation of theta radians made a tangent to my heart, it differentiated. My love for you is a quadratic equation with real roots, which only you can solve by making good binary relation with me. The cosine of my love for you extends to infinity. I promise that I should not resolve you into partial functions but if I do so, you can integrate me by applying the limits from zero to infinity. You are as essential to me as an element of a set. The geometry of my life revolves around your acute personality. My love, if you do not meet me at parabola restaurant on date 10 at sunset, when the sun is making an angle of 160 degrees, my heart would be like a solved polynomial of degree 10. With love from your higher order derivatives of maxima and minima, of an unknown function. Yours ever loving, Pythagoras 12thNov.2005 =======END============ =========== Times Bank =========== Imagine there is a bank that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course! Each of us has such a bank. Its name is TIME. Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off, as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest to good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no overdraft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day. If you fail to use the day's deposits, the loss is yours. There is no going back. There is no drawing against the "tomorrow." You must live in the present on today's deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness, and success! The clock is running. Make the most of today. To realize the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who failed a grade. To realize the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother who gave birth to a premature baby. To realize the value of ONE WEEK, ask the editor of a weekly newspaper. To realize the value of ONE HOUR, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet. To realize the value of ONE MINUTE, ask a person who missed the train. To realize the value of ONE-SECOND, ask a person who just avoided an accident. Treasure every moment that you have! And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time. Remember that time waits for no one. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it's called the present!

When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000 experiments before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said, "I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2000-step process." 2. Wilma Rudolph was the 20th of 22 children. She was born prematurely and her survival was doubtful. When she was 4 years old, she contracted double pneumonia and scarlet fever, which left her with a paralyzed left leg. At age 9, she removed the metal leg brace she had been dependent on and began to walk without it. By 13 she had developed a rhythmic walk, which doctors said was a miracle. That same year she decided to become a runner. She entered a race and came in last. For the next few years every race she entered, she came in last. Everyone told her to quit, but she kept on running. One day she actually won race. And then another. From then on she won every race she entered. Eventually this little girl, who was told she would never walk again, went on to win three Olympic gold medals. 3. In 1962, four nervous young musicians played their first record audition for the executives of the Decca recording Company. The executives were not impressed. While turning down this group of musicians, one executive said, "We don't like their round. Groups of guitars are on the way out." The group was called The Beatles. 4. In 1944, Emmeline Snively, director of the Blue Book Modeling Agency, told modeling hopeful Norma Jean Baker, "You'd better learn secretarial work or else get married." She went on and became Marilyn Monroe. 5. In 1954, Jimmy Denny, manager of the Grand Ole Opry, fired a singer after one performance. He told him, "You ain't goin' nowhere....son. You ought to go back to drivin' a truck. " He went on to become the most popular singer in America named Elvis Presley. 6. When Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone in 1876, it did not ring off the hook with calls from potential backers. After making a demonstration call, President Rutherford Hayes said, "That's an amazing Invention, but who would ever want to use one of them?" 7. In the 1940s, another young inventor named Chester Carlson took his idea to 20 corporations, including some of the biggest in the country. They all turned him down. In 1947 - after seven long years of rejections! He finally got a tiny company in Rochester, New York, the Haloid Company, to purchase the rights to his invention an electrostatic paper-copying process. Haloid became Xerox Corporation we know today. The Moral of the above Stories: --------------------------------------- Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved. You gain strength, experience and confidence by every experience where you really stop to look fear in the face.... You must do the thing you cannot do. And remember, the finest steel gets sent through the hottest furnace. And even the GOLD is tested against fire. A WINNER IS NOT THE ONE WHO NEVER FAILS, BUT ONE WHO NEVER Q U I T S !!!! We have no right to ask when sorrow comes, "Why did this happen to me?" unless we ask the same question for every moment of happiness that comes our way. Life's Good! Live it Sept.30,2005 ========End============ ================= THIS IS BOMBAY [MUMBAI] ================= Bombay has no bombs and is a harbour not a bay. Churchgate has neither a church nor a gate.

Look people in the eye. Sing in the shower. Own a great stereo system. If in a fight, hit first and hit hard. Keep secrets. Never give up on anybody. Miracles happen everyday. Always accept an outstretched hand. Be brave. Even if you're not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference. Whistle. Avoid sarcastic remarks. Choose your life's mate carefully. From this one decision will come 90 per cent of all your happiness or misery. Make it a habit to do nice things for people who will never find out. Lend only those books you never care to see again. Never deprive someone of hope; it might be all that they have. When playing games with children, let them win. Give people a second chance, but not a third. Be romantic. Become the most positive and enthusiastic person you know. Loosen up. Relax. Except for rare life-and-death matters, nothing is as important as it first seems. Don't allow the phone to interrupt important moments. It's there for your convenience, not the caller's. Be a good loser. Be a good winner. Think twice before burdening a friend with a secret. When someone hugs you, let them be the first to let go. Be modest. A lot was accomplished before you were born. Keep it simple. Beware of the person who has nothing to lose. Don't burn bridges. You'll be surprised how many times you have to cross the same river. Live your life so that your epitaph could read, No Regrets. Be bold and courageous. When you look back on life, you'll regret the things you didn't do more than the one's you did. Never waste an opportunity to tell someone you love them. Remember no one makes it alone. Have a grateful heart and be quick to acknowledge those who helped you. Take charge of your attitude. Don't let someone else choose it for you. Visit friends and relatives when they are in hospital; you need only stay a few minutes. Begin each day with some of your favorite music. Once in a while, take the scenic route. Send a lot of Valentine cards. Sign them, 'Someone who thinks you're terrific.' Answer the phone with enthusiasm and energy in your voice. Keep a note pad and pencil on your bed-side table. Million-dollar ideas sometimes strike at 3 a.m. Show respect for everyone who works for a living, regardless of how trivial their job. Send your loved ones flowers. Think of a reason later. Make someone's day by paying the toll for the person in the car behind you. Become someone's hero. Marry only for love. Count your blessings. Compliment the meal when you're a guest in someone's home. Wave at the children on a school bus. Remember that 80 per cent of the success in any job is based on your ability to deal with people. Don't expect life to be fair =======END============ ========================== In short,they were these! Got it? ========================== MOPED is the short term for 'Motorized Pedaling'. POP MUSIC is 'Popular Music' shortened. BUS is the short term for 'Omnibus' that means everybody. FORTNIGHT comes from 'Fourteen Nights' (Two Weeks). DRAWING ROOM was actually a 'withdrawing room' where people withdrew after Dinner. Later the prefix 'with' was dropped. NEWS refers to information from Four directions N, E, W and S. AG-MARK, which some products bear, stems from 'Agricultural Marketing'. JOURNAL is a diary that tells about 'Journey for a day' during each Day's business. QUEUE comes from 'Queen's Quest'.

You can't change the past, but you can ruin the present by worrying over the future. Love...and you shall be loved. God always gives His best to those who leave the choice with Him. All people smile in the same language. Everyone needs to be loved... especially when they do not deserve it. The real measure of a man's wealth is what he has invested in eternity. Laughter is God's sunshine. Everyone has beauty but not everyone sees it. It's important for parents to live the same things they teach. Thank God for what you have, TRUST GOD for what you need. If you fill your heart with regrets of yesterday and the worries of tomorrow, you have no today to be thankful for. Man looks at outward appearance but the Lord looks within. The choice you make today will usually affect tomorrow. Take time to laugh, for it is the music of the soul. Patience is the ability to idle your motor when you feel like stripping your gears. Love is strengthened by working through conflicts together. . Harsh words break no bones but they do break hearts. To get out of a difficulty, one usually must go through it. We take for granted the things that we should be giving thanks for. Love is the only thing that can be divided without being diminished. Happiness is enhanced by others but does not depend upon others. For every minute you are angry with someone, you lose 60 seconds of happiness that you can never get back. Do what you can, for who you can, with what you have, and where you are ============================ =========== Good Laughing ============= ************************************** *************************************** * ************************************** Sagaai hui...

During the early days of railways, little attention was paid to what have now become architectural wonders - the Railway Stations. ? The earliest of these were no more than unimpressive sheds providing a 'landing' place for incoming trains. The sheds were intended to offer shelter from the weather. ? Early railway stations were considered necessary but were of very temporary convenience from which the passengers hurried as soon as possible. ? In India, station buildings vary. Some are no more than a collection of old wagons and coaches, while there are others as outstanding in architectural design and as well provided in ordinary amenities for the passengers, as anywhere in the world. ? The average railway station in India consists of a brick structure providing accommodation for offices, a waiting hall for passengers. In addition, according to the importance of station or the pressure of passengers traffic, provision is made for separate waiting rooms for passengers of various classes, for men and women and for refreshment rooms and restaurants. ? Separate station offices, platforms and sheds are generally provided to deal with goods traffic. ? Over-bridges and sometimes underground subways enable passengers to cross from one platform to the other. ======= STATIONS ======= ? Of the seven railway stations in the world having the longest railway platforms, as many as five are in India, being Sonepur with the longest platform in the world (2,415 feet), Kharagpur (2,350 feet), Lucknow (2250 feet), Bezwada (2100 feet) and Jhansi (2,025 feet). ? The general looks and the basic facilities provided at the railway stations is almost same in India, but there are several whose structural beauty, architectural design and general layout make them outstanding. Victoria Terminus :- Among the best and earliest ones is the Victoria Terminus in Mumbai. It derived its name from Queen Victoria because the station building was formally opened on Jubliee Day in 1887. Originally Victoria Terminus was intended to accommodate only the office and the main station. Since 1887, additional buildings at adjoining sites have been erected. The annexed building was used as hospital during the 1914 - 18 World War, and is now used for offices. The new station building was opened in 1929, to deal with the main line traffic. The additions were so designed as to harmonise with architectural magnificence of the 1887 building and to create an impressive composited effect. The old and the new stations together comprised on the largest and busiest station terminals anywhere in the world. Designed by the famous architect, F.W. Stevens in 1887, Victoria Terminus is Gothic- Saracenic in style, with a series of well proportioned and delicately ornamented arches, giving it a look of a grand cathedral. The lancet windows in the tower are of ornate-stained glass, and like the rest of the building are made out of solid cut-stone masonry, superimposed by delicate artisitc work, designed in plaster. The arches and the windws are ventian in style and overlook a 1,500 feet facade. The double columns which support the arches of verandahs and colonnades are of marble. Italian granite has been freely used for interior decoration. Howrah :- Overlooking the banks of the Hooghly, is the Howrah railway station, constructed in colourful red brick, dating back in its present form to 1906, dimensionally, it is larger than any station in India. The site now occupied by the Howrah railway station orginally belonged to a missionary orphanage run by Portuguese Dominicans, by the side of which was located a small church. During 19th century the orphanage was shifted to Calcutta. The site was later sold to East Indian Railway. More utilitarian in style than ornamental, Howrah has large concourse opening, into the various platforms on one side, and surrounded on all others by offices, retiring rooms and waiting halls. There is no station in the world where so many vehicles of such variety - public buses, trams, motor cars, horse carriages, bullock carts, push carts, ordinary ricksaws and bicycles - can be seen plying back and forth at all times of the day and night. Stations with Local touch :- The Railway stations at Lucknow and Kanpur built in 1926 and 1928 are distinctively indigenous and yet modern. The several domes and towers are of Indo - Saracen design intended to harmonise with architecture peculiar to some of the important historical buildings in Lucknow, and dating back to the days of Nawabs of Oudh. The buildings constructed in red brick have a long facade of wise verandahs adorned with Moughal arches. A central portico leads to spacious lobby, on both side of which on two floors are administrative offices. refreshment rooms, waiting halls and retiring rooms. Constructed along the length of station, and approached by over-bridge and sub-ways are a number of platforms runing into enormous lengths of receiving incoming and outgoing traffic. Railway stations in Rajputana, at Jaipur, Jodhpur, Ajmer, Ratlam, Udaipur etc. have a distinctly Rajput motif. Stations at Hyderabad and Secunderabad have been designed with a Deccanese touch. Railway stations of Delhi, Amritsar, Patna, Gaya, Banaras, Allahabad, Nagpur, Madras, Erode, Trichinopoly etc. have elegant modern buildings but it is difficult to classify their structural design. The Station buildings of various hill railways are of exotic shape and form. The railway stations at Simla, Solan, Dharampur, Ootacamundalam, Kurseong etc. have sloping roofs and look like cottages transplanted from the Alpine regions.

God alone is the judge of true greatness because He knows men's hearts. (Mahatma Gandhi) God answers knee-mail. God can mend a broken heart but he must have all the pieces. God created woman from the side of man. Not from his head to be above him, nor from his feet to be trampled by him. From his side to be equal to him, from under his arm to be protected by him, from near his heart to be loved by him. God creates a worm for every bird - but He does not throw it in the nest. God didn't promise us it would be easy or painless; He just promised us it would be worth it! God doesn't ask your ability or your inability. He asks only your availability. (Mary Kay Ash) God doesn't call people who are qualified. He calls people who are willing, and then He qualifies them. (Richard Parker) God doesn't discriminate ... only religions do. God gave us memories, that we might have June roses in the December of our lives. (James M. Barrie) God gave us time so that everything wouldn't happen all at once. God gave us two ears but only one mouth . . . Some people say that's because He wanted us to spend twice as much time listening as talking. Others claim it's because He knew listening was twice as hard as talking. God, give me courage to do what I can, humility to admit what I can't, and wisdom to know the difference. God give me work, till my life shall end. And life, till my work is done. (Winifred Holtby's epitaph) God gives every bird its food but he doesn't throw it to its nest. God gives us faces; we create our own expressions. God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. (Reinhold Niebuhr) God has a thousand ways, Where I can see not one; When all my means have reached their end, Then His have just begun. God has given us two ears, but one tongue, to show that we should be swift to hear, but slow to speak. God has set a double fence before the tongue, the teeth and the lips, to teach us to be wary that we offend not with our tongue. (Thomas Watson) God had promised salvation to your repentance, but he has not promised tomorrow to your procrastination. God heals, and the Doctor takes the Fee. (Ben Franklin) God is God, and I'm not. (Stephen Mansfield) God is not moved or impressed with our worship until our hearts are moved and impressed by Him. (Kelly Sparks) God is too kind to do anything cruel; too wise to make a mistake; too deep to explain Himself. God loves everyone, but probably prefers "fruit of the Spirit" over "religious nuts!" God loves us not because of who we are, but because of who He is. God loves us the way we are, but too much to leave us that way. God loves you right where you are but he doesn't want to leave you there. (Max Lucado) God never said it would be easy .... He just said He would go with me. (J.G. Holland) God put me on earth to accomplish a certain number of things. Right now I am so far behind, I will live forever. God puts some in places of leadership to shoulder responsibility, not to enjoy privileges. God sends no one away empty, except those who are full of themselves. (Dwight L. Moody) God so loved the world that He did not send a committee. God's will will not lead you where His grace cannot keep you. God tries our faith so that we may try His faithfulness. God will supply all your real needs. Golden Rule: Those who have the gold rule. Good, better, best. Never rest Until good be better And better best. (Mother Goose) Good intentions are like seed pods that blow away in the wind, but good acts are like the seed planted in fertile soil. Good judgment comes from bad experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment. Good leaders are like baseball umpires; they go practically unnoticed when doing their jobs right. (Byrd Baggett) Goodness is the only investment that never fails. (Thoreau) Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around the laws. (Plato) Good taste is boundless, while bad taste knows no bounds. Grace is the divine ability to cope with every circumstance. Grandparents: the people who think your children are wonderful even though they're sure you're not raising them right. Great men may die, but there ideas won't. (Kelly Nelson) Great minds ... discuss ideas. Average minds ... discuss events. Small minds ... discuss people. Greed is a lasting slavery. (Ali bin Abi Talib) Growing old is like watching a great river erode your property and knowing you are helpless to stop it. (Robert G. Easterling) Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional. Guests and fish start to stink after two days. (Spanish Proverb) Habit is a cable; we spin a thread of it every day and at last we can not break it. Habit never goes Because if you remove H Abit remains, If you remove A Bit remains, If you remove B It still remains Half of the world's misery comes from ignorance. The other half comes from intelligence. (Bonar Thompson) Handicapped is not helpless. Handle yourself using your brain but handle others with your heart. Handy Guide to Modern Science: 1. If it's green or it wiggles, it's biology. 2. If it stinks, it's chemistry. 3. If it doesn't work, it's physics. Happiness is a path, not a destination. Happiness is like peeing in your pants. Everyone can see it, but no one feels the warmth as you do. (J.Tilse) Happiness is not something you have in your hands; it is something you carry in you heart. Happiness is what happens to us when we try to make someone else happy. Happiness will never come to those who fail to appreciate what they already have. Happy laughter and family voices in the home will keep more kids off the streets at night than the strictest curfew. Hard work doesn't harm anyone, but I do not want to take chances. Hard work has future payoff. Laziness pays off now. Hard work spotlights the character of people; some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don't turn up at all! (Sam Ewing) Hate is like swallowing poison and waiting for the other person to die. Hating hate does not mean you love love. Hating people is like burning down your own house to get rid of a rat. Have children while your parents are still young enough to take care of them. (Rita Rudner) Have less. Do less. Be more. (Aboodi Shaby) Having one child makes you a parent; having two you are a referee. Having someplace to go to is home. Having someone to love is family. Having both is a blessing. Having the right to do it, doesn't mean it is right to do it. Having your lawyer pay for lunch will be very expensive in the end. Heaven is where the police are British, the mechanics German, the cooks are French, the lovers Italian, and all is organize by the Swiss. (Eliane Kirchner) He has the right to criticize who has the heart to help. (Abraham Lincoln) He has Van Gogh's ear for music. He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose. (Jim Elliot) He is not afraid of work, you can tell by the way he fights it. He is not ready to lose a minute of his life, but he's ready to lose his life in a minute. Hell has no exits. Heaven needs none. Hell has no fire escapes. Help Wanted: Telepath. You know where to apply. Herblock's Law: if it is good, they will stop making it. Here is a test to find whether your mission on earth is finished: if you're alive, it isn't. (Richard Bach) Here's to you and here's to me and may we never disagree, but if we do I'll still love you. Her hair glistened in the rain like nose hair after a sneeze. (C. S. Woodbridge) Heroes and winners aren't the same thing. He that communicates his secret to another makes himself that other's slaves. (Baltasar Gracian) He that is discontented in one place will seldom be happy in another. (Aesop) He that lets the small things bind him, leaves the great undone behind him. He was so narrow minded he could see through a keyhole with both eyes.... 7/15/2005 =======END================

When I was born, I was so surprised 
I didn't talk for a year and a half.

If your parents never had children, 
chances are you won't, either.

Join the army, see the world, meet 
interesting people, and kill them.

Until I was 13, I thought my name 
was 'Shut Up.' 

I'm not afraid to die. I just don't 
want to be there when it happens.

Always and never are two words you 
should always remember never to use.

Is man one of God's blunders or is 
God one of man's blunders?

I've never been drunk, but often 
I've been over served.

The road to success is always 
under construction.

I say no to drugs -- they just 
don't listen!

A friend in need is a pest 
indeed.

Marriage is one of the chief 
causes of divorce.

Work is fine if it doesn't take 
up too much of your time.

When everything's coming your 
way, you're in the wrong lane.

Born free; Taxed to death.

Everyone has a photographic 
memory; some people just don't 
have film.

Life is unsure; always eat your 
dessert first.

Smile -- it makes people wonder 
what you're up to.

If you keep your feet firmly on 
the ground, you'll have trouble 
putting on your pants.

I love being a writer... what I 
can't stand is the paperwork.

A printer consists of 3 main 
parts: the case, the jammed 
paper tray and the blinking 
red light.

The hardest part of skating 
is the ice.

The guy who invented the first 
wheel was an idiot; the guy who 
invented the other three, he 
was the genius.

The trouble with being punctual 
is that therte's no one there to 
appreciate it.

If our constitution allows us 
free speech, why are there phone bills?

If you tell a man there are 300 
billion stars in the universe, 
he'll believe you. But if you 
tell him a park bench has just 
been painted, he has to touch 
it to be sure.

Beat the 5 O'clock rush: leave 
work at noon!

If you can't convince them, 
confuse them.

It's not the fall that kills 
you; it's the sudden stop at 
the end.

I couldn't repair your brakes, 
so I made your horn louder.

Hot glass looks same as cold glass. 
(Cunino's Law of Burnt Fingers)

Never underestimate the power of 
very stupid people in large groups.

The cigarette does the smoking - 
you are just the sucker.

Tagore and Iqbql
===============
" When Allama Iqbal came to know  that Tagore 
did not recognize him (Iqbal) as a poet becuase 
he did not write poetry in his mother tongue 
(Punjabi). 
He decided to communicate with him on the 
subject.

In a letter to Tagore, Allama wrote
 "My mother 
tongue is not fully developed that 
is why I write 
in Urdu and Persian and not in Punjabi".

"My mother-tongue is also not 
fully developed 
either; but I am helping it to 
fully develop by 
writing in it", Tagore replied.

Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening 
by Robert Frost.
-------------------------------------
Whose woods these are I think I know. 
His house is in the village, though; 
He will not see me stopping here 
To watch his woods fill up with snow. 

My little horse must think it's queer 
To stop without a farmhouse near 
Between the woods and frozen lake 
The darkest evening of the year. 

He gives his harness bells a shake 
To ask if there's some mistake. 
The only other sound's the sweep 
Of easy wind and downy flake. 

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep, 
But I have promises to keep, 
And miles to go before I sleep, 
And miles to go before I sleep

The Hammer

===========
A man is in court for murder and the 
judge says 
' You are charged 
with
beating your mother in law to death 
with a
 hammer.'
Then a voice at the back of the court 
says, 
' you bloody liar '  
Then
the judge says ' you are also charged 
with 
beating your servant to 
death
with a hammer.' Again the voice at
 the back 
of the court says, ' you 
bloody
liar !'
The judge continues ' You have another 
charge - for attacking 
your wife
with a hammer. The voice at the back of 
the court grows even louder ' 
you
bloody liar !
The judge points to the crowd in court
 room and says ' now there, 
we cannot have any more of  these 
outbursts
 from you or I shall charge 
you with
contempt of court  But what's your 
problem ? 
Then the man at the back of the
 court says, 
fifteen years I lived 
next door to that liar ! and 
everytime I asked to 
borrow a hammer he said 
he never had one!

Love,aim of life
==========
Life is a struggle and necessity;
Life is not regrets or all facility;
It takes different forms,entity;
All same story,same calamity.

Love is ubiquity,love is university;
Love lives whether east or west;
Love lists no bounds, limitations;	
Love lives; has no qualifications.

Aim is same, directions different;
Path also same, looks divergent;
Persons different, but one human;
Love binds them into one relation

Life without love is not a life at all;
Love should be aim of life after all.

THE CAR     Vs     THE COMPUTER
=======================
 For all of us who feel only the
 deepest love and 
affection for the way computers 
have enhanced 
our lives, read on.  At a recent
 computer expo 
(COMDEX), Bill Gates 
reportedly compared the computer
 industry with 
the auto industry and stated, "If GM had 
kept up with technology like the 
computer industry 
has, we would all be driving $25.00 
cars that got 1,000 miles to the gallon".

In response to Bill's comments,
 General Motors 
issued a press release stating:

"If GM had developed technology like
 Microsoft,
we would all be driving cars with 
the following 
characteristics"(and I just
love this part):

1.For no reason whatsoever,your car 
would crash 
twice a day.

2.Every time they repainted the lines
 in the road,
you would have to buy a new car.

3.Occasionally your car would die 
on the freeway 
for no reason.  You would have to 
pull over to the 
side of the road, close all of the 
windows, 
shut off the car, restart it, and 
re-open the windows 
before you could continue.  
For some reason you would simply accept
 this.

4.Occasionally, executing a manoeuvre 
such as a 
left turn, would cause your car 
to shut down and 
refuse to restart,
in which case you would have to 
reinstall the engine.

5.Macintosh would make a car that was
 powered 
by the sun, was reliable, five times
 as fast and twice 
as easy to drive - but would run on 
only five percent of the roads.

6.The oil, water temperature,and alternator 
warning lights would all be replaced by 
a single 
"This Car Has Performed An Illegal 
Operation" warning light.

7.The airbag system would ask: "Are you sure?" 
before deploying. 

8.Occasionally, for no reason whatsoever, 
your 
car would lock you out and refuse to let 
you in until 
you simultaneously lifted the door 
handle,turned the key and grabbed hold
 of the radio 
antenna.

9.Every time a new car was introduced,
 car 
buyers would have to learn how to drive 
all over 
again - because none of the controls 
would operate in the same manner as
 the old car.

10.You'd have to press the "Start" button to 
turn the   engine off

Purposeful [Made to Order]
=========================
On the very first day, God created the 
cow.  He said to the cow,
"Today I have created you!  As a cow, 
you must go to the field with
the farmer all day long. You will work 
all day under the sun!  I will
give you a life span of 50 years." 
The cow objected.  "What? This
kind of tough life you want me to 
live for 50 years?  Let me have 20
years, and the last 30 years - 
I'll give back to you."

So God agreed.


On the second day, God created the dog.  
God said to the dog, "What
you are supposed to do is to sit all day 
by the door of your house.
 Any people that come by, or in, you 
will have to bark at them!  I'll give you a
life span of 20 years!" The dog objected.  
"What?  All day long I
have to sit by the door? No way! Let me 
live for only 10 years.  I
give you back my other 10 years of life!"

So God agreed.

On the third day, God created the monkey.  
He said to the monkey, "A
monkey has to entertain people.  You've 
got to make them laugh and do
monkey tricks.  And I'll give you a 20 year 
life span." The monkey
objected.  "What?
Make them laugh?  Do monkey faces and
 tricks? Ten years will do, and
the other 10 years - I'll give back to you."

So God agreed.

On the fourth day, God created man 
and said to him, "Your job is to
sleep, eat, and play.  You will enjoy 
very much in your life.  All
you need to do is to enjoy and do nothing.  
For this kind of life,
I'll give you a 20 year life span.
" The man objected.  "What?  Such a
good life!  Eat, play,sleep, do nothing?  
Enjoy the best and you
expect me to live only for 20 years? 
No way, man!....... Why don't
we make a deal?  Since Cow gave 
you back 30 years, Dog gave you back
10 years, and Monkey gave you back 
10 years, I will take them from
you!  That makes my life span 
70 years, right?"

So God agreed.

AND THAT IS WHY...

In our first 20 years, we eat, sleep, 
play, enjoy the best and do nothing much. 
For the next 30 years, we work all day long, 
suffer and get to support the family.  
For the next 10 years, we entertain our
grandchildren by making monkey faces 
and doing monkey tricks.  
And for the last 10 years, 
we stay at home, 
sit in front of the door 
and
bark at people

LESSONS OF WISDOM

First Important Lesson - Cleaning Lady.
===========================
During my second month of college, 
our professor gave us a pop quiz. I 

was a conscientious student and had 
breezed through the questions, until I 

read the last one:

"What is the first name of the woman 
who cleans the school?"
Surely this was some kind of joke. 
I had seen the cleaning woman several 

times.
She was tall, dark-haired and in her 50s, 
but how would I know her name?
I handed in my paper, leaving the last 
question blank. Just before class 

ended,
one student asked if the last question 
would count toward our quiz grade.

"Absolutely," said the professor. 
"In your careers, you will  meet many 

people. All are significant. They deserve 
your attention and care, even if all 

you do is smile and say 'hello'.

I've never forgotten that lesson. 
I also learned her name was Dorothy.
--------

Second Important Lesson 
- Pickup in the Rain
===========================
One night, at 11.30 p.m., an older 
African American woman was standing 

on  the side of an Alabama highway 
trying to endure a lashing rainstorm. 

Her car had broken down and she 
desperately needed a ride. Soaking wet, 

she decided to flag down the next car. 
A young white man stopped to help 

her, generally unheard of in those 
conflict-filled 1960s.

The man took her to safety, helped her 
get assistance and put her into a 

taxicab. She seemed to be in a big hurry, 
but wrote down his address and 

thanked him.

Seven days went by and a knock 
came on the man's door. To his 
surprise, a giant console color TV was 
delivered to his home. A special note was 

attached. It read: "Thank you so much 
for assisting me on the highway the 

other night. The rain drenched not only 
my clothes, but also my spirits. 

Then you came along. Because of you, 
I was able to make it to
my dying husband's bedside just 
before he passed away.
 
"God bless you for helping me 
and unselfishly serving others."
Sincerely, 
Mrs. Nat King Cole.
-------------

Third Important Lesson - 
Always remember those who serve.
========================
In the days when an ice cream sundae 
cost much less, a 10 -year-old boy 

entered a hotel coffee shop and sat 
at a table. A waitress put a glass of  

water in front of him.
"How much is an ice cream sundae?" 
he asked.
"Fifty cents," replied the waitress. 
The little boy pulled his hand out of his 

pocket and studied the coins in it.
"Well, how much is a plain dish of 
ice cream?" he inquired.
By now more people were waiting 
for a table and the waitress was growing 

impatient.
"Thirty-five cents," she brusquely 
replied.
The little boy again counted his coins. 
"I'll have the plain ice cream," he 

said.
The waitress brought the ice cream, 
put the bill on the table and walked 

away.
The boy finished the ice cream, 
paid the cashier and left.
When the waitress came back, 
she began to cry as she wiped down 
the table.
There, placed neatly beside the 
empty dish, were two nickels and five 

pennies.

You see, he couldn't have the sundae, 
because he had to have enough left 

to leave her a tip.
============


Fourth Important Lesson. - 
The obstacle in Our Path. (We all know this 

story and need to only refresh our memory)
-------------
In ancient times, a King had a boulder 
placed on a roadway. Then he hid 

himself and watched to see if anyone 
would remove the huge rock. Some 

of the king's wealthiest merchants 
and courtiers came by and simply 

walked around it. Many loudly 
blamed the King for not keeping 
the roads clear, but none did anything 
about getting the stone out of the way. 
Then a peasant came along carrying 
a load of vegetables. Upon 

approaching the boulder, the peasant 
laid down his burden and tried to 

move the stone to the side of the road.
>>After much pushing and straining, 
he finally succeeded. After the 

peasant picked up his load of 
vegetables, he noticed a purse 
laying in the road where the boulder 
had been. The purse contained 
many gold coins and a note from the 
King indicating that the gold was for 
the person who removed the boulder 
from the roadway. The peasant learned 
what many of 

us never understand!

Every obstacle presents an opportunity 
to improve our condition.
====================

Fifth Important Lesson 
Giving When it Counts.
--------------
Many years ago, when I worked as a 
volunteer at a hospital, I got to know 

a little girl named Liz who was 
suffering from a rare and serious disease. 

Her only chance of recovery appeared 
to be a blood transfusion from her 

5-year old brother, who had miraculously 
survived the same disease and 

had developed the antibodies needed 
to combat the illness.

The doctor explained the situation to 
her little brother, and asked the little 

boy if he would be willing to give his 
blood to his sister.
I saw him hesitate for only a moment 
before taking a deep breath and 

saying, "Yes I'll do it if it will save her."
As the transfusion progressed, he lay 
in bed next to his sister and smiled, as 

we all did,
seeing the color returning to her cheek.

Then his face grew pale and his smile 
faded. He looked up at the doctor 

and asked with a trembling voice, 
"Will I start to die right away".
Being young the little boy had 
misunderstood the doctor; he thought he 

was going to have to give his sister 
all of his blood in order to save her

Look what happens when a President gets 
elected in a year with a "0" at end.

1840: William Henry Harrison (died in office)
1860: Abraham Lincoln (assassinated)
1880: James A. Garfield (assassinated)
1900: William McKinley (assassinated)
1920: Warren G. Harding (died in office)
1940: Franklin D. Roosevelt (died in office)
1960: John F. Kennedy (assassinated)
1980: Ronald Reagan (survived assassination 
attempt)
2000: George W. Bush ????????????

And to think that we had two guys fighting 
it out in the courts to be the one elected 
in 2000.

You might also be interested in this!
Have a history teacher explain this if they can!

Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846.
John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946.

Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860.
John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960.

Both were particularly concerned with 
civil rights.Both wives lost a child 
while living in the White House.

Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.
Both Presidents were shot in the head.

Now it gets really weird...

Lincoln's secretary was named Kennedy.
Kennedy's secretary was named Lincoln.

Both were assassinated by Southerners.
Both were succeeded by Southerners 
named Johnson.

Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln, 
was born in 1808.
Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, 
was born in 1908.

John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated 
Lincoln, was born in 1839.
Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated 
Kennedy, was born in 1939.

Both assassins were known by 
their three names.
Both names are composed of 
fifteen letters.

Now hang on to your seat...!

Lincoln was shot at the theater 
named " Ford".
Kennedy was shot in a car 
called "Lincoln" made by "Ford".

Booth and Oswald were assassinated 
before their trials.

And here's the "kicker":

A week before Lincoln was shot, 
he was in Monroe, Maryland.
A week before Kennedy was shot, 
he was with Marilyn Monroe.

AND.....................:

Lincoln was shot in a theater 
and the assassin ran to a warehouse...
Kennedy was shot from a warehouse 
and the assassin ran to a theater

India in 2020? There is a vision 
  
Year: 2020


Place: Two Americans at 
IBM, USA.


Currency Conversion Rate: Re 1/- = $100/
-.

  
  
Alex: Hi John, you didn't come 
yesterday to office?

John: Yeah, I was in Indian Embassy 
for stamping.

Alex: Oh really, what happened, 
I heard that nowadays it has 
become very strict.

John: Yeah, but I managed to get it.

Alex: How long it took to get it 
stamped?

John: Oh, it was nasty man, 
long queue. Bill Gates was 
standing in front of me 
and they played with him 
like anything. That's why 
it got delayed. 
I went there at 2 am itself 
and waited and returned by 4pm.

Alex: Really? In India, it is a 
matter of an hour to get stamped for
USA

John: Yeah, but that is because who 
in India will be interested in
coming to USA man, their economy has
 been booming.

Alex: So, when are you leaving?

John: Anytime, after receiving my 
tickets from the client in India
and you know, I will be getting a 
chance to fly Air-India. Sort of
dream come true.

Alex: How long are you going to 
stay in India.

John: What do you mean by how 
long? I will be settled in India, 
my company has promised me that
 they will process my Hara Patta ..
(green
card)

Alex: Really, lucky person man, 
it is very difficult to get a Hara
Patta in India.

John: Yeah, that's why, I am planning 
to marry an Indian girl there.

Alex: But you can find lots of US
 girls in Chennai, Bangalore and
Mumbai.

John: But, I prefer Indian girls 
because they are beautiful and
cultured.

Alex: Where did you get the offer, 
Chennai?

John: Yeah, salary is good there,
 but cost of living is quite high,
it is Rs. 1000/- for a single room 
accommodation.

Alex: I see, that's too much for 
US people, Rs.1/- =$100/-. Oh God!
what about in Bangalore, Mumbai?

John: No idea, but it is less than 
what we have in Chennai. It is
like the world headquarters of software

Alex: I heard, almost all the Indians
 are having one personal Robot
for help.

John: You can get a BMW car for Rs. 
5000/-, and a personal Robot for
less than Rs.7500/-. But my dream is
 to purchase Ambassador, which
costs Rs.2,00,000/- but has got a 
lovely design.

Alex: By the way, who is your client?

John: Iyer and Iyengar Associates, 
a pure Indian company,
specialising in Embedded Software.

Alex: Oh, really, lucky to work in
 a pure Indian company. They are
really intelligent and unlike American
 Bodyshoppers who have opened
their Fly-by-night outfits in India.
 Indian companies pay you in full
even when you are on bench.
My friend Paul Allen, it seems, used 
his bench time to visit Bihar,
the most liveable place in India, 
probably world. There you have full
freedom and no restrictions. You can 
do whatever you want! I wonder
how that state has perfected that 
system.
John: Yeah man!, you are right.
 I hope our America also follows their
footsteps.

Alex: How are you going to cope with 
their language?

John: Why not? From my school days
 I have been learning Hindi as my
first language here at New York. 
At the Consulate they tested my
proficiency in Hindi and were quite
 impressed by my cent per cent
score in TOHIL i.e. Test of Hindi as
 International Language.

Alex: So, you are going to have 
fun there.

John: Yeah, I will be travelling in 
the world's fastest train,
world's largest theme park, and the 
famous Bollywood where you can 
see actors like, Hrithik, 
Shah Rukh Khan and all. Esselworld 
is also near Bollywood.

Alex: You know, the PM is scheduled 
to visit US next year, he may
then relax the number of visas.

John: That's true. Last month,
 Narayana Murthy visited White House
and donated Rs. 2000/- for 
infrastructure  development at Silicon
Valley and has promised more if we 
follow the model of High-Tech City
of Hyderabad. Bill Gates also got a 
chance of meeting him. Very lucky
person.

Alex: But, Indian government is 
planning to split Narayanamurthy's
Infosys.

John: He is a hard worker man, 
he can build any number of Infosys
like this. Every minute he is 
getting Rs. 1000/-. It seems, if you
keep all his money converted as
 Rs. 100/- notes you can reach Pluto.

Alex: OK, Good Luck John.

John: Same to you Alex. And don't 
go to Consulate in a "Kurta Pyjama"
because they will think you are too
 Indianised and may doubt you will
never come back and hence your 
Non-Immigrant Visa may get rejected.
But don't forget to say " Namaste, 
aap kaise hai " to the Visa
officer at Window 5. It seems he 
likes that and will not give you
a visa if you don't greet him that 
way.

University via apparent poverty
======================

Lady in a faded gingham dress and her husband, 
dressed in a homespun threadbare suit, stepped 
off the train in Boston and walk timidly
without an appointment into the Harvard 
University 
President's outer office.
The secretary could tell in a moment that such 
backwoods, country Hicks had no business at 
Harvard and probably didn't even deserve to
be in Cambridge.
"We want to see the president," the man said
 softly.
"He'll be busy all day," the secretary snapped.
"We'll wait," the lady replied".
For hours the secretary ignored them, hoping 
that the couple would Finally become 
discouraged and go away. 
They didn't and the secretary grew frustrated 
and finally decided to disturb the president, 
even
though it was a chore she always regretted.

"Maybe if you see them for a few minutes, 
they'll leave," she said to him.
He sighed in exasperation and nodded. 
Someone of his importance
obviously didn't have the time to spend 
with them, but he detested gingham dresses 
and homespun suits cluttering up his outer 
office. The president, stern faced and with 
dignity, strutted toward the couple.
The lady told him, "We had a son who 
attended Harvard for one year.
He loved Harvard. He was happy here. 
But about a year ago, he was
accidentally killed 
My husband and I would like to erect a 
memorial to him, somewhere on campus "
The president wasn't touched.... 
He was shocked.
"Madam," he said, gruffly, "we can't put 
up a statue for every person who attended 
Harvard and died. If we did, this place 
would look like a cemetery.
"Oh, no," the lady explained quickly. 
"We don't want to erect a statue. We thought 
we would like to give a building to Harvard."
The president rolled his eyes. He glanced at 
the gingham dress and Homespun suit, and 
then exclaimed, "A building!  Do you have any
earthly idea how much a building costs? 
 We have over seven and a half million dollars 
in the physical buildings here at Harvard."
For a moment the lady was silent.
The president was pleased. Maybe he could 
get rid of them now.
The lady turned to her husband and 
said quietly, "Is that all it costs to start a 
university? Why don't we just start our own?"
Her husband nodded.

The president's face wilted in confusion 
 and bewilderment. Mr. and Mrs. Leland 
Stanford got up and walked away, traveling 
to Palo Alto,California where they established 
the university that bears their name, Stanford 
University, a memorial to a son that Harvard 
no longer
cared about.

Wrong truth and true lie
==========================

One day, while a woodcutter was cutting a 
branch of a tree above a river, his axe fell 
into the river.

When he cried out, the Lord appeared and 
asked, "Why are you crying?" The woodcutter 
replied that his axe
has fallen into water, and he needed the axe to 
make
his living.
The Lord went down into the water and 
reappeared with a golden axe.
"Is this your axe?" the Lord asked.
The woodcutter replied, "No."
The Lord again went down and came up 
with a silver axe. "Is this your
axe?" the Lord asked.
Again, the woodcutter replied, "No."
The Lord went down again and came up 
with an iron axe.
"Is this your axe?" the Lord asked.
The woodcutter replied, "Yes."
The Lord was pleased with the man's honesty 
and gave him all three axes to
keep, and the woodcutter went home happy.
Some time later the woodcutter was walking 
with his wife along the
riverbank, and his wife fell into the river.
When he cried out, the Lord again appeared 
and asked
him, "Why are you crying?"
"Oh Lord, my wife has fallen into the water!"
The Lord went down into the water and came 
up with
Jennifer Lopez. "Is this your wife?" the 
Lord asked.
"Yes," cried the woodcutter.
The Lord was furious. "You lied! That is 
an untruth!"
The woodcutter replied, "Oh, forgive me, 
my Lord. It
is a misunderstanding.
You see, if I had said 'no' to Jennifer Lopez, You
would have come up with
Catherine Zeta-Jones.
Then if I said 'no' to her, you would have come up
with my wife.
Had I then said 'yes,' you would have given me all
three.
Lord, I am a poor man, and am not able to take 
care of
all three wives,
so...
THAT'S why I said yes to Jennifer Lopez."

The moral of this story is: Whenever a man lies, 
it is
for a good and
honorable reason, and for the benefit of others.

That's our story, and we're sticking to it! - "WE
HONORABLE MEN!!!!!!"

 PLAN TO BANKRRUPT BILL GATES 
=============================


1. Bill Gates earns $250 every SECOND, 
that's about $20 million a DAY
and $7.8 billion a YEAR!


2. If he drops a thousand dollars, he 
won't even bother to pick it up
because in the 4 seconds it takes 
to pick it up, he would have already
earned it back.


3. U.S's national debt is about 
$5.62 trillion. If Bill Gates wants to
pay he debt by himself; he will finish
it in less then 10 years.


4. He can donate $15 to everyone 
on earth and still be left with $5
million for his pocket money.


5. Michael Jordan is the highest paid 
athlete in the U.S. If he doesn't drink 
and eat, and keep his annual income at 
$30 million,he'll have to wait for 277 
years to become as rich as Bill Gates is
today.


6. If Bill Gates were a country, he will 
be the 37th richest country on earth. 


7. If you change all of Bill Gate's money
to $1 bills, you can make a road from earth 
to moon 14 times back and forth. But you 
will have to make that road non-stop for 
1400 years, and use a total of 713 BOEING
747 planes to transport all the money.


8. Bill Gates will be 42 this year. If we 
assume that he still can live for another 
35 years, he has to spend $6.78 million 
per day to finish his money before his death.


9. BUT!!! If we theMicrosoft Windows'
users claim $1 for every time their computers 
hang because of Microsoft Windows, 
Bill Gates will go bankrupt in 3 years.
