India in Australia 1 down !!!

The much hyped series has begun. And the result after the boxing day test is as expected. India thrashed by Australia in a batsmen friendly pitch. Indians must do something in order to survive in the series, otherwise aussies will never give a chance. India bowled out for less than 200 on two occasions with having strongest middle order in whole world. What went wrong with India?. After reaching Australia Indian captain Kumble had said “I don’t see any chances that India cannot beat aussies”. But after the finish of the first test, we can see lot many chances that aussies can beat India. At the end of first day with 9 wkts, many people across the world thought that they had found the team which can give real fight back to aussies, which can dominate the aussies in Australia from the very first day. Aussies would have had a bad sleep with the batting failure ( though it isn’t that bad total, with 330+ runs in 90 overs losing 9 wkts ) and the next day they went in to play a 100% professional cricket which made everyone in the world agree that they are the best team in the world. They bowled consistently, their fielding was as usual extra ordinary on the final day (4th day of the test) even though they are defending a massive total of 500. Imagine india defending the same total, they would give 4 runs instead of 2, 2 instead of 1, such is the Indian fielding. I think the problem with the Indian batting is, they are still in a feeling that if you get stick to the crease for an hour the runs will flow automatically. And that is quite true, it paid off nicely in England tour and in the recent Pakistan tour. But the same doesn’t happen in Australia, if you seem to be little over cautious and try to be defending every ball, aussies will tighten the bowling and fielding which will make the batsmen’s life even more miserable. The fact that everyone must agree is, if you want to succeed in Australia, you have to score runs at faster rate. If you look at the positive and negative aspects of India, you would agree that india is nowhere near to the standards of the Australian team in the first test.

Positives – Bowling (5/10) : yes, you read it right, the Indian bowling is a positive aspect in the recent test. Before this series, many had doubt that whether our bowlers can take 20wkts in a test. But our bowlers proved it wrong. Yes, we have the capacity to make the aussies batsmen all out in a five day game which is the key to winning the game. I agree, they have conceded over 700 runs with taking 13 wkts if I am not wrong. There was a situation with 135 for no loss that they can score 700 easily in the first innings without losing much wickets. Thanks to excellent bowling by our captain and some useful wickets by zaheer khan in the first innings. But I don’t agree that our bowling can be rated as excellent bowling attacks in the world. I can say this is still the range of average and good bowling attacks. The problem here is the fielding. Look at the aussies fielding, they were superb throughout the test which eventually gives confidence to bowlers and frustration to the batsmen as well. So if you add the kind of fielding attack that aussies have to the Indian side, then our bowling can be termed as very good to excellent bowling attacks. But that did not happen, our fielding was below average that aussies batsmen have taken singles at will. So if at all India wants to give any fight back to aussies in the next test, they must consider their fielding problem seriously. Apart from bowling I don’t see any positives in the Indian side.

Here comes the biggest negative, Indian batting (3/10), which was supposed to be the strength of the Indian side turned out to be their biggest weakness. With the likes of sachin, laxman, yuvraj, dhoni in the middle order and the classy batsmen jaffer and dravid at the top present in the batting lineup, they did not give any head ache for the aussies bowling. The reason is again their good bowlers who hardly bowl any loose deliveries and their fielding attack. I think they’ve found a way to restrict the Indian batsmen, that is if you don’t give runs and make their survival difficult then Indians will lose their wickets at quick intervals. Adding to this, ponting had setup some unusual fielding positions for our batsmen which led to frustration and caused our batting to collapse. So the only way to survive their attack is by being aggressive, not by means of physical behavior but by showing their aggression with the kind of play. The biggest mistake in this test as far as I think is, forcing dravid to open. Yes, because dravid is lack of runs in the recent pak series and we added some extra burden by asking him to open the innings, I agree there were some situations where dravid came early in the second over or so in some test matches which is the same case as this one. But openers have to be aggressive, at least while playing with Australia. I think, india should include sehwag in place of yuvraj the next test and let dravid to take his favourite no.3 position, and then sachin, laxman, ganguly and dhoni in the middle order. And india failed to build useful partnerships in the middle overs with consistent run rate. Sachin and sourav were looking good and build some 65 run stand by being aggressive especially in hogg’s bowling and once their stand is broken, no one succeeded in building partnerships. Here I want to mention one thing, ponting is superb as a captain because when sachin and ganguly were going after hogg in the very first over of his spell, he did not remove him from the attack. But he had confidence in him, and hogg took useful wickets in the end. This is very much necessary for a bowler who lacks confidence and captain should have trust in him. And one last point, I want to mention in this is the indian’s running between the wickets (2/10). If you see hayden and jaques pair they took singles at ease, without much effort. But on the other hand, india weren’t that good between the wickets. I saw, many batsmen especially ganguly who did not drag in the bat while reaching the other end, he just puts the bat in the crease. And he has survived few very close chances of getting run out. Every batsmen drags in the bat while running, which is the basic thing even a child knows this, how can international players do like that. Huh…I’ll stop here, because it will get even more larger if you write about Indian batting in the first test. Thanks for having patience reading this, hope india plays well in the next test at least and draws the series.

India vs Australia Series -- Preview

India vs Australia…wat a contest it will be…a contest where there will be a fierce fight between bat and ball.. I’ve always been a fan of test cricket though the short versions of the game are more entertaining now a days. But I think, this cricket is the real test for any player whether he could be a batsman or a bowler. He should have lot of patience, accuracy, and what not. Irrespective of many people’s comments on test cricket, I really enjoyed watching it. I never get bored especially in Australian test matches. I don’t know why, may be because of the bouncy tracks and their pace men who literally collapsed all the teams which have been to Oz. This time, it won’t be the same again – because its gonna be India vs Australia. True, its India only which has given tough competition to Australia in the past and often tried to reach their position. But with the likes of Warne, Mcgrath absent, they have Lee, Tait, Mitchelle Johnson all of them who can easily bowl 150KPH, I am sure it will be great entertainment watching Indian batsmen who have great records in their bags play against them. With the captain Kumble leading from the front, you can not underestimate Indian bowling with RP Singh, Zaheer, bajji and the new comer Ishanth Sharma. And coming to the Indian batting, the BIG 3 are back in the form, though Mr. Dependable dravid lacked some runs in the recent series. I am confident that he can retain his glory. We always forget one man, who has been consistently performing in the test cricket and has the all rights to join in that BIG * league. He is none other than Very Very Special Laxman. He grabbed every opportunity he has been given and constantly scored many runs in the test arena. Never forget the six sixers hero Yuvraj Singh, If you’ve watched his innings in Bangalore, any one will agree that he can score a lot in test cricket though he hasn’t been given much opportunities. With lots of talent Indian side, captain kumble has new headache as to whom should he include in the final XI and also who will open in the innings. If it has to be triple centurion Sehwag, then Yuvi has to wait another series. If kumble compels dravid to open the innings with Jaffer ( he should agree because he is no more a captain), then Yuvi can make the middle order even stronger. So, It will be a great treat to watch for all the cricket fans, and I am eagerly waiting for the series to begin. Don’t you?

Every Software Engineer should read this !!!

Every Software Engineer should read this. A Story about Onsite...!

One fine day, Vivek's PL Bhatia asks him whether he has any time for a
meeting. Vivek obviously has time and so the two go to a conference

room. Bhatia then clears his throat and says "Vivek, there is an on-site

requirement. It is in Covina, Los Angeles. It is for six months. I can

suggest your name. Do you have any problems?"

Vivek cannot believe his ears. Of course why should any one have

going to the Sam land. "Of course no Bhatia.. I have no

problems." he says.

Bhatia looks at him very kindly and says "You better draw up your

plans with your wife and let me know in a day or two" That's when Vivek

remembers that he has a wife. Then it strikes him that there is a

problem in front of him. Shobana is working in Wipro. She is in

the middle of a project in which she is a module leader. She cannot
leave it

all and come to Covina with Vivek. On the other hand it will be cruel on

Vivek's part to leave her here and go to Covina for more than half a
year. Moreover,

they have just been married. Vivek can stay back. But one day he has to

He cannot stay back in India indefinitely. Project requirements are too

demanding. Shobana can resign Wipro and accompany Vivek. But what is the

guarantee that she would find such a nice job in such a nice company
after they come

back from Covina? So Shobana and Vivek discuss this issue. They
reluctantly agree to get separated for six months.

Vivek hugs Shobana in the airport and says "I will be BACK" in a typical

Arnold Scharzegger tone and then boards Delta Airways leaving Shobana in

tears. In Covina Vivek gets lots of work and his stay gets extended by

more months. The days and months move very slowly. Vivek starts counting

even minutes.

During this period, Shobana's PL Ashish Mehta calls her one day and asks

her whether she has any time for a small meeting. Shobana wonders what

that meeting is.. They go to the conference room and Mehta tells her

about a great on-site requirement in Berlin, Germany for their customer.

"It is for six months and you are most suited person for this. I am

going to suggest your name. Do you have any problems?" Mehta asks her.

Shobana gets excited.. Berlin! She has never been out of India. So she

instantly nods her head. Mehta then smiles and says "Okay discuss with

your hubby and let me know in a day or two"

That's when Shobana gets the gravity of the situation. It will be two

months before Vivek can come home..... By the time Shobana will have
left to

Berlin for six months. Shobana cannot decline this as this is an

important assignment. That night Vivek spends hundred dollars on

telephone to discuss this matter with Shobana. Finally they decide to go

ahead. Shobana breaks down in the phone and Vivek breaks down thinking

about his phone bill. And then Shobana leaves to Berlin.

One month after that,Vivek comes back to India. Then Shobana calls him

almost everyday and they discuss about all petty things on the phone.

Shobana applies for a loan to clear her telephone bills. Vivek gets into

a new project which is not yet started. His PL Prateek Ray calls him one

day and says that he has to go to ToledoOhio for the requirement

of that project. Vivek frantically says no. Shobana is arriving next
month. He doesn't
want to miss her. But Ray assures him that the work is only for one
month and

that he would be back before Shobana comes to India. Thus Vivek flies to

ToledoOhio and gets into the requirement analysis of the new project.

That's when he comes to know how difficult it is to retrieve information

from the users. You can design a system the user wants only when the

user knows what he wants. Vivek gets baffled by the questions his users


"Do you think I need those fields "GMG_TYPE_HJHJ_TW" and

"Auto_level_ind"?What are they by the way?" The requirements analysis

stage continues for three full months at this pace. Shobana comes to
India one

month after that. And she tells her PL that she doesn't want anymore

on-site assignments. "I understand" says Mehta and she desperately
waits for Vivek to come back to India. It has already been two months
over a year

since they last met. Vivek then gets the role of an on-site co-ordinator

for this customer. He calls Shobana that night and they really don't

know what to do. Shobana offers to resign her job and join him in
Toledo. But

she is getting 21 grand per month in India and Vivek doesn't want to

that. "Two more months Shobana and I promise I will be back" Shobana

retorts back, "There is no solution for this problem." Vivek gets

surprised. "What are you talking about?" he asks her. Shobana fights
back her tears. "As long as I am in Wipro I will be getting a lot of
on-site opportunities. Even if I

decline all of them, what about you? You also work for a software

company and there you need to go abroad almost once every quarter.

I cannot accompany you as you don't want me to resign my job here. Does

that mean we have to stay like this forever? Vivek! I love you and I

don't know how I spent fifteen months without even seeing you once. I

may not recognize you also if you come in front of me now.... Tell me

is there a solution for this problem?" Vivek doesn't speak anything for

moment. He then realizes the truth in her sentences. It is a


But what about the 20 grand she is getting per month?

"Vivek, is money everything? Can't we comfortably live with what you are

getting? Please Vivek, try to understand the situation" Shobana breaks

down. Vivek is still undecided. He married a software engineer with a

hope that with two incomes he would have a good deal of money to plan

future."Let us face the reality, Vivek" Shobana says, "How much are you

paying for the phone calls now? More than 20 grand per month.

If I am with you there will your phone bill be so astronomical? Just

tell me one thing. Won't you be happy having me there with you?" Shobana

slowly turns hysterical. Vivek gets into the crux of the situation. It
is true.

He has been spending around 600 to 700 dollars per month on India

that is far more than what Shobana is getting then. He thinks and

thinks..for two days he does nothing else but thinking. Finally he
decides that

he should have Shobana with him all the time from then onwards at any

Shobana gladly prepares the resignation letter and submits it. Her PL

smiles and says "You've made the right decision Shobana..

congratulations for the bold step. I understand your problems.
Anyway! you have a three

months notice period here, right? We have a one month assignment in

Singapore ....."

MORAL : No software professional should marry another software
professional.... unless one of them is ready to resign.

A love story that changed many lives !!!

Love Story of Narayana Murthy and Sudha (From Sudha's Autobiography) -- though it is quite big, i recommend you to read this entirely...

It was in Pune that I met Narayan Murty through my friend Prasanna who is
now the Wipro chief, who was also training in Telco. Most of the books that
Prasanna lent me had Murty's name on them which meant that I had a
preconceived image of the man. Contrary to expectation, Murty was
shy,bespectacled and an introvert. When he invited us for dinner. I was
a bit taken aback as I thought the young man was making a very fast move.
I refused since I was the only girl in the group. But Murty was
relentless and we all decided to meet for dinner the next day at 7.30 p.m.
Green Fields hotel on the Main Road ,Pune.
The next day I went there at 7' o ! clock since I had to go to the tailor
near the hotel. And what do I see? Mr. Murty waiting in front of the
hotel and it was only seven. Till today, Murty maintains that I had
(consciously!) that I would be going to the tailor at 7 so that I could
meet him...And I maintain that I did not say any such thing consciously
or unconsciously because I did not think of Murty as anything other than a
friend at that stage. We have agreed to disagree on this matter.
Soon, we became friends. Our conversations were filled with Murty's
experiences abroad and the books that he has read. My friends insisted
that Murty as trying to impress me because he was interested in me. I kept
denying it till one fine day, after dinner Murty said, I want to tell
you something. I knew this as it. It was coming. He said, I am 5'4" tall.
I come from a lower middle class family. I can never become rich in my
life an! d I can never give you any riches. You are beautiful, bright, and
intelligent and you can get anyone you want. But will you marry me? I
asked Murty to give me some time for an answer. My father didn't want me to
marry a wannabe politician, (a communist at that) who didn't have a steady
job and wanted to build an orphanage... When I went to Hubli I told my parents about Murty and his proposal. My
mother was positive since Murty was also from Karnataka, seemed
intelligent and comes from a good family. But my father asked: What's his
job, his
salary, his qualifications etc? Murty was working as a research
assistant and was earning less than me. He was willing to go dutch with me
on our
outings. My parents agreed to meet Murty in Pune on a particular day
at10 a. m sharp. Murty did not turn up. How can I trust a man to take care
of my daughter if he cannot keep an appointment, asked my father. At 12noon Murty turned up in a bright red shirt! He had gone on work to
Bombay , was stuck in a traffic jam on the ghats, so he hired a
taxi(though it was very expensive for him) to meet his would-be
Father was unimpressed. My father asked him what he wanted to become in
Murty said he wanted to become a politician in the communist party and
wanted to open an orphanage. My father gave his verdict. NO. I don't
want my daughter to marry somebody who wants to become a communist and then
open an orphanage when he himself didn't have money to support his family. Ironically, today, I have opened many orphanages something, which
Murty wanted to do 25 years ago. By this time I realized I had developed a
liking towards Murty which could only be termed as love. I wanted to marry
Murty because he is an honest man. He proposed to me highlighting the
negatives in his life. I promised my father that I will not marry Murty
his blessings though at the same time, I cannot marry anybody else. My
father said he would agree if Murty promised to take up a steady job. But
Murty refused saying he will not do things in life because somebody wanted
him to. So, I was caught between the two most important people in my life. The stalemate continued for three years during which our courtship took
us to every restaurant and cinema hall in Pune. In those days, Murty was
always broke. Moreover, he didn't earn much to manage. Ironically
today, he manages Infosys Technologies Ltd., one of the world's most reputed companies. He always owed me money. We used to go for dinner and he
would say, I don't have money with me, you pay my share, I will return it to you later. For three years I maintained a book on Murty's debt to me.. No,
he nev ! er returned the money and I finally tore it up after my wedding.
amount was a little over Rs 4000. During this interim period Murty quit
his job as research assistant and started his own software business. Now, I
had to pay his salary too! Towards the late 70s computers were entering
India in a big way. During the fag end of 1977 Murty decided to take up a job as General
Manager at Patni Computers in Bombay . But before he joined the company
he wanted to marry me since he was to go on training to the US after
joining. My father gave in as he was happy Murty had a decent job, now. WE WERE MARRIED IN MURTY'S HOUSE IN BANGALORE ON FEBRUARY 10, 1978 WITH
400 EACH.
I went to the US with Murty after marriage. Murty encourage! d me to see
America on my own because I loved travelling. I toured America for
three months on backpack and had interesting experiences which will remain
freshin my mind forever. Like the time when the New York police took me
into custody because they thought I was an Italian trafficking drugs in
Harlem . Or the time when I spent the night at the bottom of the Grand
Canyon with an old couple. Murty panicked because he couldn't get a
response from my hotel room even at midnight. He thought I was either
killed or kidnapped.
CAPITAL...initially I was very apprehensive about Murty getting into
business. We did not have any business background .. Moreover we were
living a comfortable life in Bombay with a regular pay check and I
didn't want to rock the boat. But Murty was passionate about creating good
quality software. I decided to support him. Typic! al of Murty, he just had
dream and no money. So I gave him Rs 10,000 which I had saved for a rainy
day, without his knowledge and told him, This is all I have. Take it. I give you three years sabbatical leave. I will take care of the financial needs
of our house. You go and chase your dreams without any worry. But you have
only three years! Murty and his six colleagues started Infosys in 1981,with enormous
interest and hard work. In 1982 I left Telco and moved to Pune with Murty.
bought a small house on loan which also became the Infosys office. I was a
clerk-cum-cook-cum-programmer. I also took up a job as Senior Systems
Analyst with Walchand group of Industries to support the house. In 1983
Infosys got their first client, MICO, in Bangalore . Murty moved to
Bangalore and stayed with his mother while I went to Hubli to deliver
my second child, Rohan. Ten days after my son was b! orn, Murty left for the US on project work. I saw him only after a year, as I was unable to join
Murty in the US because my son had infantile eczema, an allergy to
vaccinations. So for more than a year I did not step outside our home for
fear of my
son contracting an infection. It was only after Rohan got all his
vaccinations that I came to Bangalore where we rented a small house in
Jayanagar and
rented another house as Infosys headquarters. My father presented Murty
a scooter to commute. I once again became a cook, programmer, clerk,
secretary, office assistant et al. Nandan Nilekani (MD of Infosys) and
his wife Rohini stayed with us. While Rohini babysat my son, I wrote
programs for Infosys. There was no car, no phone, and just two kids and a
of us working hard, juggling our lives and having fun while Infosys was
taking shape. It was not only me but also the wives of other partners too
gave their unstinted support. We all knew that our men were trying to build
something good. It was like a big joint family,taking care and looking out for one
another. I still remember Sudha Gopalakrishna looking after my daughter
with all care and love while Kumari Shibulal cooked for all of us. Murty
made it very clear that it would either be me or him working at Infosys.
the two of us together... I was involved with Infosys initially.
Nandan Nilekani suggested I should be on the Board but Murty said he
did not want a husband and wife team at Infosys. I was shocked since I had
the relevant experience and technical qualifications. He said, Sudha if you
want to work with Infosys, I will withdraw, happily. I was pained to
know that I will not be involved in the company my husband was building and
that I would have to give up a job that I am qualifi! ed to do and love
doing. It took me a couple of days to grasp the reason behind Murty's
request.. I realized that to make Infosys a success one had to give one's
percent. One had to be focussed on it alone with no other distractions. If
two of us had to give 100 percent to Infosys then what would happen to our
home and our children? One of us had to take care of our home while the
other took care of Infosys. I opted to be a homemaker, after all Infosys was Murty's dream. It was
a big sacrificebut it was one that had to be made. Even today, Murty
says, Sudha, I stepped on your career to make mine. You are responsible for
my success.

Great na.... That's the Power of Love.
Every man needs a woman to motivate him and to give him a reason to live....

Titles of Cricketers.

We've seen many cricket players with their third name (i.e., the extra titles given to them) on the field or in the media..This is an attempt to put all those great titles at one place..
To start with..
Sachin Tendulkar --- "The batting maestro", "Little Master", "Master Blaster"
Rahul Dravid --- "The Wall", "Mr. Dependable"
Sourav Ganguly -- "Prince of Kolkata"
Dhoni -- "Jharkhand Dynamite"
Kumble -- "The Jumbo"
Sehwag -- "Nawab of najafgarh"

OSO Review !!!

Movie : Om Shanti Om

Verdict : Super Hit.

A complete entertainer—that’s the one word that comes to everyone’s mind after watching this movie..there is action, drama, comedy, tragedy, n there is sentiment… coming to the story – it is based on reincarnation, I know there r many people who say “arey yaar, what is this punarjanma? Whos gonna watch this movie” but I tell you, you would not get bored in the movie though reincarnation in real is not possible..the first half of the movie is superb I would rather say the ultimate comedy ever produced by Bollywood in recent times.. and our SRK has acted brilliantly in comedy scenes even in the ones which include jokes on himself… and the second half.. I felt disappointed with the way it is handled, the story in second half is dragged too much, could have been done better by Farah Khan. But the background music and songs are excellent. Nice work by Vishan-Shekhar and Sandeep Chowtha. You’ll see a new SRK in the second half with his brand new six-packs. the Filmfare awards episode(especially the best actor nominees. :D.) just before the title song is simply fantastic..This 2007 has been a golden year for SRK, he has already had two big hits of Bollywood in his bag -- Chak De India, and OSO.. I hope he continues his form (just like sachin :D) in the next films. Any review would be incomplete if you don’t mention about the debut heroine Deepika, who steals the show with her charm and a lil bit of skin show even in the scenes where it is not needed. Overall, a good movie to watch out for SRK’s performance and for the spoofs on veteran bollywood actors.

Software Satthaa !!!

sorry guys, only people who can understand telugu can enjoy this post..maximize the images for better view.

Worthy enough to read this !!!

A boy was born to a couple after eleven years of marriage. They were a loving couple and the boy was the gem of their eyes. When the boy was around two years old, one morning the husband saw a medicine bottle open. He was late for office so he asked his wife to cap the bottle and keep it in the cupboard. His wife, preoccupied in the kitchen totally forgot the matter.

The boy saw the bottle and playfully went to the bottle fascinated by its color and drank it all. It happened to be a poisonous medicine meant for adults in small dosages. When the child collapsed the mother hurried him to the hospital, where he died. The mother was stunned. She was terrified how to face her husband.

When the distraught father came to the hospital and saw the dead child, he looked at his wife and uttered just five words.

1. What were the five words ?
2. What is the implication of this story?

Scroll down...


The husband just said "I am with you Darling"

The husband's totally unexpected reaction is a proactive behavior. The child is dead. He can never be brought back to life. There is no point in finding fault with the mother. Besides, if only he had taken time to keep the bottle away, this would not have happened.

No one is to be blamed. She had also lost her only child. What she
needed at that moment was consolation and sympathy from the husband. That is what he gave her.

If everyone can look at life with this kind of perspective, there would be much fewer problems in the world. "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness, and fears. And you will find things are actually not as difficult as you think.


Sometimes we spend time in asking who is responsible or whom to blame, whether in a relationship, in a job or with the people we know. By this way we miss out some warmth in human relationship

Impossible is nothing !!!

This is a case of photographer photographs photographer. The following photographs were taken by photographer Hans van de Vorst at the Grand Canyon, Arizona. The descriptions are his own. The identity of the photographer IN the photos is unknown.

I was simply stunned seeing this guy standing on this solitary rock IN the Grand Canyon.
The canyon's depth is 900 meters here. The rock on the right is next to the canyon and safe.

Watching this guy on his thong sandals, with a camera and a tripod I asked myself 3 questions:

1. How did he climb that rock?
2. Why not taking that sunset picture on that rock to the right, which is perfectly safe?
3. How will he get back?

This is the point of no return.

After the sun set behind the canyon's horizon he packed his things (having only one hand available)
and prepared himself for the jump. This took about 2 minutes.
At that point he had the full attention of the crowd.

After that, he jumped on his thong sandals...
The canyon's depth is 900 meters here.

Now you can see that the adjacent rock is higher so he tried to land lower, which is quite steep
and tried to use his one hand to grab the rock.

We've come to the end of this little story. Look carefully at the photographer.
He has a camera, a tripod and also a plastic bag, all on his shoulder or in his left hand.
Only his right hand is available to grab the rock and the weight of his stuff is a problem.

He lands low on this flip flops both his right hand and right foot slips away...
At that moment I take this shot.

He pushes his body against the rock.
He waits for a few seconds, throws his stuff on the rock, climbs and walks away.

Impossible is Nothing.
Where There is a Will, there is a Way.
Believe in Yourself.
All power is within You.
You can do Anything and Everything.
Have confidence in Yourself.

A true love story, Interesting !!!

A boy and a girl were in love.

When the girl's father came to know about their love, he did not like it at all, and so began to protest about it.

Now it happened that the two lovers decided to leave their homes for a happy future.

The girl's father started searching for the two lovers but could not find them .

At last, he accepted their love and asked them to come back home thru a local newspaper. Her father said "If you both come back I will allow you to marry the guy you love, I accept that you loved each other truly."

So in this way, their love won and they returned home.

The couple next day went to town to shop for the wedding dress. He was dressed in a white shirt that day. While he was crossing the road to the other side to get some drinks for his wife, a car
came and hit him and he died on the spot.

The girl was devastated and lost her senses. It was only after sometime that she recovered from her shock.

The funeral and cremation was the very next day because he had died horribly.

Two nights later, the girl's mother had a dream in which she saw an old lady. The old lady asked her mother to wash the blood stains of the guy from her daughter's dress as soon as possible. But her mother ignored the dream.

The next night her father had the same dream , he also ignored it. Then the girl had the same dream the next night, she woke up in fear and told her mother about the dream. Her mother asked her to wash the clothes with the blood stains immediately.

She washed the stains but some remained. Next night she again had the same dream. She again washed the stains but some still remained. But again the next night she had the same dream and this time the old lady gave her a last warning to wash the blood stain, or else something terrible would happen.

This time the girl tried her best to wash the stains, and the clothes nearly tore, but some stains still remained. She was very tired.

In the late evening the same day while she was alone at home, someone knocked on the door. When she opened the door she saw the same old lady of her dream standing at her door. She got very scared and fainted.

The old lady woke her up... and gave her a blue object, which shocked the girl.

She asked "What is this...?" The old lady replied...

Tips to be followed in the office - A must read for everyone !!!

How to 'look' busy

1.Never walk without a document in your hands

People with documents in their hands look like hardworking employees heading for important meetings. People with nothing in their hands look like they're heading for the canteen. People with a newspaper in their hand look like they're heading for the toilet. Above all, make sure you carry loads of stuff home with you at night, thus generating the false impression that you work longer hours than you do.

2. Use computers to look busy

Any time you use a computer, it looks like "work" to the casual observer. You can send and receive personal e-mail, chat and generally have a blast without doing anything remotely related to work. These aren't exactly the societal benefits that the proponents of the computer revolution would like to talk about but they're not bad either. When you get caught by your boss - and you “will” get caught .Your best defense is to claim you're teaching yourself to use new software, thus saving valuable training expenses.

3. Messy desk

Top management can get away with a clean desk. For the rest of us, it looks like we're not working hard enough. Build huge piles of documents around your workspace. To the observer, last year's work looks the same as today's work; it's volume that counts. Pile them high and wide. If you know somebody is coming to your desk, bury the document you'll need halfway down in an existing stack and rummage for it when he/she arrives.

4. Voice Mail

Never answer your phone if you have voice mail. People don't call you just because they want to give you something for nothing - they call because they want you to do work for them. Screen all your calls through voice mail. If somebody leaves a voice mail message for you and it sounds like impending work, respond during lunch hour when you know they're not there - it looks like you're hardworking and conscientious even though you're being a devious weasel.

5. Looking Impatient and Annoyed

Always try to look impatient and annoyed to give your senior the impression that you are always busy.

6. Leave the office late

Always leave the office late, especially when the boss is still around. You could read magazines and storybooks that you always wanted to read but have no time until late before leaving. Make sure you walk past the boss's room on your way out. Send important emails at unearthly hours(e.g. 9:35pm, 7:05am, etc.) and during public holidays.

7. Creative Sighing for Effect

Sigh loudly when there are many people around, giving the impression that you are under extreme pressure.

8. Stacking Strategy

It is not enough to pile lots of documents on the table. Put lots of books on the floor etc. (thick computer manuals are the best).

9. Build Vocabulary

Read up on some computer magazines and pick out all the jargon and new products. Use the phrases freely when in conversation with collegues. Remember: They don't have to understand what you say, but you will sound impressive.

10. Have two jackets

If you work in a big open plan office, always leave a spare jacket draped over the back of your seat. This gives the impression that you are still on the premises. The second jacket should be worn while swanning around elsewhere.

Love & Marriage !!!

A student asks a teacher, "What is love?"
The teacher said, "in order to answer your question, go to the padi field and choose the biggest paddy and come back. But the rule is: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back to pick." The student went to the field, go thru first row, he saw one big paddy, but he wonders....may be there is a bigger one later. Then he saw another bigger one... but may be there is an even bigger one waiting for him. Later, when he finished more than half of the padi field, he start to realize that the padi is not as big as the previous one he saw, he know he has missed the biggest one, and he regretted. So, he ended up went back to the teacher with empty hand.
The teacher told him, "...this is love... you keep looking for a better one, but when later you realize, you have already miss the person...."

"What is marriage then?" the student asked.
The teacher said, "in order to answer your question, go to the corn field and choose the biggest corn and come back. But the rule is: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back to pick." The student went to the corn field, this time he is careful not to repeat the previous mistake, when he reach the middle of the field, he has picked one medium corn that he feel satisfied, and came back to the teacher.
The teacher told him, "this time you bring back a corn....
you look for one that is just nice, and you have faith
and believe this is the best one you get.... this is marriage
