DON'T COPY IF YOU CAN'T PASTE

Hi While Sending the old mails to trash, I glanced thru' the one. This is a mail received by me sometime back. I should share it with all newcomers......
"Not too long ago, a large seminar was held for ministers and reverends in training. Among the facilitators were many well-known motivational speakers. One such speaker boldly approached the pulpit and, gathering the entire crowd's attention, said, "The best years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman who wasn't my wife!"
The crowd was shocked!
He followed up by saying, "That woman was my mother!" The crowd burst into laughter and he gave his speech, which was well received.
About a week later, one of the ministers who had attended the seminar decided to use that joke in his sermon. As he shyly approached the pulpit one sunny Sunday, he tried to rehearse the joke in his head. It was a bit foggy to him. Getting to the microphone he said loudly, "The greatest years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman who was not my wife!" His congregation sat shocked, murmuring. After standing there for almost 10 seconds trying to recall the second half of the joke, the pastor finally blurted out "...and I can't remember who she was!"

Moral of the story: Don't copy if you can't paste.

A Hilarious Mail from a frustrated victim of chain mailsA

Having sent to trash the accumulated mails over a period of years, I spotted a mail received some time back, I thought is worth sharing with others.
I wanted to thank all my friends and family who have forwarded chain letters to me in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and still continuing in 2010 also.......
Because of your kindness:
  • I stopped drinking Coca Cola after I found out that it's good for removing toilet stains.* I stopped going to the movies for fear of sitting on a needle infected with AIDS.
  • Forwarded hundreds of mails but still waiting for FREE DESKTOP, LAPTOP, CAMERA, CELLPHONE etc....
  • I smell like a wet dog since I stopped using deodorants because they cause cancer...
  • I don't leave my car in the parking lot or any other place and sometimes I even have to walk about 7 blocks for fear that someone will drug me with a perfume sample and try to rob me.
  • I also stopped answering the phone for fear that they may ask me to dial a stupid number and then I get a phone bill with calls to Uganda, Pakistan, Singapore and Tokyo...
  • I also stopped drinking anything out of a Can for fear that I will get sick from the rat faces and urine.
  • I also donated all my savings to the Amy Bruce account. A sick girl that was about to die in the hospital about 7,000 times.... (Poor girl! she's been 7 since 1993...)
  • Still open to help somebody from Nigeria who wants to use my account to transfer his uncle's property of $ 100 million. So much trustworthy.
  • I have forwarded 35 emails to 400 people hoping that Ericsson or Nokia will send me latest mobile phones but those models are also obsolete now.
  • Made some Hundred wishes before forwarding those Ganesh , Tirupathi Balaji pics etc. Now most of those 'Wishes' are already married (to someone else)

NOW IMPORTANT NOTE :

If you do not send this e-mail to at least 11,246 people in the next 10 seconds, a bird will Pee on your head today at 6:30pm. Nothing has happened till now......... ......... ..... but who knows. So please forward.

Do not Judge People by mere looks

One truck driver was doing his usual load delivery at a mental hospital, by parking his vehicle beside an open drain. He discovered a flat tyre when he was about to return from the mental hospital. He jacked up the truck and removed the flat tyre to fix the spare tyre. When he was about to fix the spare tyre, he accidentally dropped all the 4 bolts in the open drain. As he cannot fish the bolts in the open drain, he started to panic as to what should be done? Just then, one patient happened to walk past him and asked the driver as to why he was looking troubled.

The driver thought to himself, since there is nothing much he can do or this mental joker can. Just to keep the bugging away, the truck driver informed the whole episode to the mental patient and gave a helpless look. The patient just laughed at the truck driver and said “you just cannot even fix such a simple problem? No wonder you are destined to remain a truck driver for life". The truck driver was astonished to hear such a compliment from a mental guy." Here is what you can do “said the mental guy "Take one bolt from each of the remaining 3 tyres/wheels and fix it on to this tyre. Then drive down to the nearest workshop and replace the missing ones. Isn’t it simple my friend ".

The truck driver was so impressed with this quick fix answer and asked the patient "how come you are so smart and intelligent and you are here at the mental hospital?"

The patient replied..." hello friend! I stay here because I am crazy but not stupid".

No wonder, there are some people, who behave like the Truck Driver, thinking that others are just stupid. So, guys, though you all are learned and wise, but, just watch out, there could be some CRAZY guys in our professional / personal lives, who could give us lot of quick fixes and brush our wisdom.

The moral of the story is - just do not conclude that you know everything and do not judge people by mere looks/ attire stature or academic background.

Sharing with all my friends one of the mails received by me .. I am sure it is quite interesting .... Hope you agree with me ........

"Opening luggage Bag at the Airport -- Watch this Video carefully .....!!!!!
"How They Steal From Your Bag at Airport" If you are traveling, with zippered suitcases, think again. Watch the video to see howloaders can steal from your locked zippered suitcases without even opening the lock. At some airports there is an option to shrink wrap the bag. I wish it was available everywhere". How easily they open and steal from your suitcase which looks properly locked when you regain it from the Belt. After you watch this,you will not leave anything valuable in your suitcase anymore. This is the way a bag is opened at the airport without your knowledge... Many people would have things missing from their baggage, even when they received them at the arrival port Unopened and Untouched !! How did the thief (at the airport) do it ? Just watch the video ...... Anyone has an old bag to experiment on ? This is very educational! "Do not leave your gold ingots and diamond necklaces in your zippered bags,okay ? They don't have to open lots of bags. Only those with valuables, as told to them by the X-ray Machines!"

My recent visit to US

(second instalment)

"I am referring to my recent visit to USA. It was a memorable trip and I enjoyed every moment. Let us begin with our recent visit to Sanfrancisco. Six months ago when we went to Sanfrancisco from India, to live with our daughter's family, we knew it would keep us busy in an alien country by caring for our first grandson, the sweet Gattu.In 2006, our daughter was the first in the family to arrive in the U.S after her wedding. Four years later thanks to the son in law who had been in US right after his Masters in 2000 all have become the coveted GC holders now.

Back home, you get people to do all kinds of chores for you, but here, you get hands-on experience. Once I came here, I realized if I have to be productive, I would have to drive . This way, I could help with grocery shopping. To live in the suburbs, learning to drive is the key to success . It allows me to manage my own time. However, the over protective attitude of my daughter was left to her choice without much debate. For those who don't drive, the Internet keeps them connected to an outside world they want to be a part of. Every day, one can spend a few hours online. A recent mail received made me and my better half sit up and laugh to our heart's content, as laughter is so necessary for us seniors. The mail read as "In case of an emergency, speak only in English and forget about saying prayers in any other language..You never know what kind of translation problem you can run into..."

An Indian in the US suffered a heart attack on the road and was picked up by an ambulance. Being religious, he kept repeating - Hari Om Hari Om Hari Om. When the ambulance pulled into his home, his wife came out and screamed at the paramedics: 'Why didn't you take him straight to the hospital?' They replied 'Because he kept saying "Hurry home Hurry home Hurry home!'"

During the course of morning walks I made friends with seniors of Indian origin. During the course of our general chit n talk and according to one Mr Hyakubune "it's high time Indians got over the hang-up of the concept of retirement homes, which for many in the Indian community is tantamount to abandoning one's parents in their old age and carries a stigma. According to him, anyone who thinks they are going to be living with their American-born children in their old age is living in a fool's paradise. The general perception seemed to be that nobody had any desire to live in an old person's home,and as Mr Hyakubune put it correctly - "As we grow older, we need them more than they need us." One gentleman Sardarji went to the extent of saying whether opting for US citizenship was in the right direction.The talks with the GC and American Citizens revealed certain interesting things which could be concluded in the following words:

The dilemma is while aiming for the material benefits of the west and belonging and be accepted by the west, unwillingness to go to the full extent was observed. There are many people who do not get assimilated with their new environment at the same time the economic compulsions prevent them a return to roots. The next and future generations have no such dilemma. Same the case with the previous generation also.


According to the American Community Survey of the U.S. Census Bureau, the Asian Indian population in the United States grew from almost 1,679,000 in 2000 to 2,570,000 in 2007: a growth rate of 53%, the highest for any Asian American community, and among the fastest growing ethnic groups in the United States. Indian Americans are the third largest Asian American ethnic group, after Chinese Americans and Filipino Americans. "Many of these older new arrivals don't drive and have to spend long hours within the confines of the four walls while their children go to work."

I traveled a lot by local buses, but unlike Mumbai, where there are buses every 20 minutes, here the buses come once in half an hour. They are seldom crowded, and a $1 ticket is valid for four hours. But I miserably miss the hustle, bustle and frequency of my own BEST in Mumbai. As for shopping, every supermarket and department stores is as large as a football stadium and every item is priced some dollars and 99 cents. I feel the American shops follow the pricing strategy of our Bata Ltd., where the shoes are always priced in some 799 or 899 rupees. Yet, unlike Mumbai, the human touch is lacking at every place we visited. Everything is automated right from the local railway stations and with no booking windows or clerks, it is difficult to get proper guidelines. Human beings appear to be scarce and as for noise, it does not exist.

Winter is setting in, America is preparing itself for the festival season of Thanksgiving and Christmas. Shops are bursting with goods. Slowly we are counting the simple blessings of life. After years of boiling and filtering drinking water, it is a pleasure to drink water straight from the tap. In all apartments and country homes at every tap there are two pipes – one steaming hot tap and other one cold. The shoes never seem to get dirty and the air we breathe is so different from Mumbai."

On Saturday I was fortunate to have Sai Baba's "Darshan" at the Temple in Milptas along with members of my family including our sweet Gattu. It is a recently consecrated temple here in Milpitas, CA. If you are in the Milpitas vicinity, I implore you to visit this place. Here is the link for the temple website. We also visited the Swami Narayan Temple at Milpitas near Sai Temple.

We recently went out to a restaurant with some friends for Sunday breakfast, and while we sat in the patio, we happened to notice ZIPLOC baggies attached to the restaurant's patio wall. The bags were half-filled with water, each bag contained four pennies, and were all zipped shut. Out of curiosity, we asked the waiter about the baggies. We were told that they kept the flies away. Naturally, we became even more curious. So we actually watched. Sure enough, some flies came in the open window, and then flew out again, and there were absolutely no flies in the open patio eating area the entire time we were in the restaurant!

Upon getting home, I checked it out on Google and saw several comments from various people who swore that ZIPLOC baggies half-filled with water and a few pennies when attached over entryways will repel flies. Some commented that it also works for wasps. One particular comment on Google shed light on how and why it works. The comment posted on 5/26/2009 said:

My research found that each of the millions of molecules of water presents its own prism effect and given that flies have a lot of eyes, to them it's like a zillion disco balls reflecting light, colors and movement in a dizzying manner. When you figure that flies are basically prey for many other bugs, animals, birds, etc., they simply won't take the risk of being around that much perceived action. I moved to a rural area and I thought these "hillbillies" were just yanking my city boy chain but I tried it, and it worked immediately. We went from hundreds of flies to seeing an occasional one, but it didn't hang around long.

This is surely a new twist to fly control. It's hard to believe but it works. If you have problem with flies, it would be worth a try. We don't have many flies, but one is one too many.

Sit More, Die Younger?

More on sitting more ...........More evidence mounts that the time you spent sitting each day, even if you exercise otherwise, is bad for you. Need tips on how to stop sitting?

The more time you spend sitting (outside of work), the greater your chances of death within the next 14 years. That is the finding of American Cancer Society's Cancer II study of over 100,000 healthy people they started tracking in 1992. Women who sit for more than six hours during their leisure time each day had a 37% greater chance of death than women who sat for three hours or, while men had an 18% greater chance of death.

This finding was independent of whether the people got in a good dose of exercise each day. That said, those who did get exercise did have a lower risk of death. Here is where I get confused, since press tends to spin this that the exercise isn't doing any good. I think what they are saying is that the total sitting is bad. Exercise is still good for reducing risks, but for the lowest risk you should also reduce your time spent sitting.

I've reported on two previous studies that had similar findings, that sitting is bad for your health. My walking friend Ruth commented on this at a recent half marathon we walked in. "But I get paid to sit. I get paid REALLY WELL to sit!" Like Ruth, my jobs involve sitting at a desk and computer. Time spent away from the computer is money lost. So -- what is the answer? I get regular missives from inventors of treadmill desks. Stand up to do your computer work!

I have 10 ways stop sitting still, which I am going to have to start taking very seriously!

Stand Up While You Read This! - Don't sit continuously for a longer period

Don't sit continuously for a longer period.

Very sensible words of advice for the modern times (and particularly relevant for CM musicians?): Stand Up While You Read This! "Your chair is your enemy." "It doesn’t matter if you go running every morning, or you’re a regular at the gym. If you spend most of the rest of the day sitting — in your car, your office chair, on your sofa at home or on computer — you are putting yourself at increased risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, a variety of cancers and an early death. In other words, irrespective of whether you exercise vigorously, sitting for long periods is bad for you."

Thanks to gattu, I don't sit continuously for a longer period.

Marriage Proposal

Why not read this for a change. This too was received by mail couple of days back. Read .....

A man really loved a woman, but he was just too shy to propose to her. Now he was up in his years and neither of them had ever been married. Of course, they dated about once a week for the past sixteen years, but he was so timid he just never got around to suggesting marriage much less living together. But one day, he became determined to ask her the question. So he calls her on the phone,

"June."
"Yes, this is June."
"Will you marry me?"
"Of course I will!
By the way, who are you?"

In case of an emergency, speak only in English and forget about saying prayers in any other language....

Time to to celeberate with Sanskrit Newspaper

Jul 25, 2010
The newspaper will be launched in Vadodara, Surat, Bharuch, Palanpur, Modasa, Idar. Lovers of Sanskrit language have a reason to rejoice. In a first in the state, Sanskrit scholars in M S University, Vadodara, are coming up with a Sanskrit daily. The first copy of the newspaper — Sanskrit Vartaman Patram — will be launched in Vadodara, Surat, Bharuch, Palanpur, Modasa and Idar on Sunday. The newspaper, which is the third Sanskrit newspaper in the country, aims to take the language of vedas to the readers. The other two Sanskrit newspapers are published in Mysore and Kanpur. MSU professor Praful Purohit, who ideated the plan, said: "We have been thinking about launching a Sanskrit daily for the last three years. We used to publish a monthly magazine. We have planned to start with 1,500 copies and the cost will be at par with other dailies." "We are a team of three but we are also taking help from the students. The newspaper will have local, national and international reports. We will also have articles on our historic pasts. We have asked our students to file reports," said M L Wadekar, director of MS University's Oriental Institute, and one of the three editors.
"We had initially brought out a pilot copy of the newspaper and the response was encouraging. We will be using simple Sanskrit words, which even a person with no knowledge of the language can understand. We will also include a glossary of Sanskrit words translated in Hindi, English, Gujarati and Marathi," added Purohit.

Baggers can't be Juicers

This guy has been working as a bag boy in a supermarket for five years.
One day the supermarket gets new orange juice machines, and the bag boy is real excited and asks the manager if he can work the juice machines. The manager says no.

The manager goes, "I'm sorry, son, but, baggers can't be juicers."

Marriage proposal of an IT professional

Baby, I'v seen you yesterday while surfing on local train platform and realized that you are the only site I was browsing for. For long time, I have been lonely, trying to find a bug in my life and you can be a real debugger for me now. My life is just an uncompiled program without you, which neverproduces an executable code and hence is useless. You are not only beautiful by face but all your ActiveX controls are attractive as well. Your smile is so delightful, which encourages me and gives power to me equal to thousands of mainframes processing power. When you looked at me last evening, I felt like all my program modules were running smoothly and giving expected results. Which I never experienced before. With this letter, I just want to convey to you that, if we linked together, I’ll provide you all objects & libraries necessary for a human being to live an error free life. Also don’t bother about the firewall which may be created by our parents as I’ve strong hacking capabilities by which I’ll ultimately break their security passwords and make them agree for our marriage. I anticipate that nobody is already logged in to your database so that my connect script will fail. And its all certain that if this happened to me,I will crash my system beyond recovery. Kindly interpret this letter properly and grant me all privileges of your inbox.

Lessons from Square Watermelons

(For latecomers)
Japanese grocery stores had a problem. They are much smaller than their US counterparts and therefore don't have room to waste. Watermelons, big and round, wasted a lot of space. Most people would simply tell the grocery stores that watermelons grow round and there is nothing that can be done about it. That is how I would assume the vast majority of people would respond. But some Japanese farmers took a different approach. If the supermarkets wanted a square watermelon, they asked themselves, "How can we provide one?" It wasn't long before they invented the square watermelon.


The solution to the problem of round watermelons wasn't nearly as difficult to solve for those who didn't assume the problem was impossible to begin with and simply asked how it could be done. It turns out that all you need to do is place them into a square box when they are growing and the watermelon will take on the shape of the box.

This made the grocery stores happy and had the added benefit that it was much easier and cost effective to ship the watermelons. Consumers also loved them because they took less space in their refrigerators which are much smaller than those in the US meaning that the growers could charge a premium price for them.
Take away lessons from "Square watermelons"
Don't Assume: The major problem was that most people had always seen round watermelons so they automatically assumed that square watermelons were impossible before even thinking about the question. Things that you have been doing a certain way your entire life have taken on the aura of the round watermelon and you likely don't even take the time to consider if there is another way to do it.
Break away from the routine and find better ways to do things.
Question habits: If you can make an effort to question the way you do things on a consistent basis. Forming habits when they have been well thought out is usually a positive thing, but many people have adopted habits from various people and places without even thinking about them.
Best way to tackle assumptions is to question your habits!
Be creative: When faced with a problem, be creative in looking for a solution. This often requires thinking outside the box. Most people who viewed this question likely thought they were being asked how they could genetically alter water melons to grow square which would be a much more difficult process to accomplish. By looking at the question from an alternative perspective, however, the solution was quite simple.
Be creative and look at things in different ways!
Look for a better way: The square watermelon question was simply seeking a better and more convenient way to do something. The stores had flagged a problem they were having and asked if a solution was possible. It's impossible to find a better way if you are never asking the question in the first place. Ask if there is a better way of doing the things since these are usually hints about steps that need to change.
Question old habits and seek for better ways to do things!
Impossibilities often aren't : If you begin with the notion that something is impossible, then it obviously will be for you. If, on the other hand, you decide to see if something is possible or not, you will find out through trial and error.
Search for possibilities in impossibilities!
"Square watermelons" notes apply to work, and elsewhere..

This is for the Lovers of English Language

Lovers of the English language might enjoy the following:

Looks like there is a two-letter word that perhaps has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that is.......... . "UP."

It's easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP? At a meeting, why does a topic come UP? Why do we speak UP, why are the officers UP for election, and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report?

We call UP our friends. And we use it to brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver, to warm UP the leftovers, and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and some guys fix UP the old car. People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses. To be dressed is one thing, but to be dressed UP is special.

And this UP is confusing: A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP. We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night.

We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP! To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP, look the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4th of the page, and can add UP to about thirty definitions. If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more. When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP. When the sun comes out we say it is clearing UP.

When it rains, it wets the earth and often messes things UP.
When it doesn't rain for awhile, things dry UP.

One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it UP, for now my time is UP, so it's time for me to shut UP! ............ ...(or is it more like you youngsters say "Zip UP"??)

VERY NICE ONE - WOMEN MUST READ - Behind every great man is a greater woman

One night President Obama and his wife Michelle decided to do something out of routine and go for a casual dinner at a restaurant that wasn't too luxurious. When they were seated, the owner of the restaurant asked the president's secret service if he could please speak to the First Lady in private. They obliged and Michelle had a conversation with the owner. Following this conversation President Obama asked Michelle, why was he so interested in talking to you. She mentioned that in her teenage years, he had been madly in love with her. President Obama then said, "so if you had married him, you would now be the owner of this lovely restaurant" , to which Michelle responded, "no, if I had married him, he would now be President".

BAPS Mandir in Milpitas, CA-USA

Adjacent to Saibaba Temple we had "Darshan" at the Swami Narayan Temple in Milpitas. Here is the link for the temple website

Doc, exactly what's my problem

A man goes to the doctor and tells him that
he hasn't been feeling well. The doctor
examines him, leaves the room and comes
back with three different bottles of pills.

The doctor says, "Take the Big pill with a
big glass of water when you get up. Take the
little pink pill with a big glass of water after lunch.
Then just before going to bed, take the red pill
with another big glass of water."

Startled to be put on so much medicine the
man stammers, "My goodness, doc, exactly
what's my problem?"

Doctor says, "You're not drinking enough water."
