Just wanted to correct the information… This already happened in 2003 and won’t happen again until 2208

Don’t beat me up

There is a man in a village who has three children. These three children are extremely disobedient and never listen to whatever their parents tell. They are always whiling away their time and never doing anything worthwhile.

So, one day their father, out of great concern calls them and gives them advice over different issues. And finally he says,”I don’t want to see you wasting your time like this. If you people want to really become successful in life, you must work hard and not idle away. Now, you guys go and study and try to do well in your exams”.

After listening to all this, the three children go inside and take a mango each and start eating. They keep eating the mango for about an hour until every fibre is eaten. Now, only the seed remains and yet, they are unwilling to throw it away and are licking it again and again.

Seeing this, the father becomes very happy. Why?

Because the children showed to the father that they can “suck seed” (succeed) very well in life. 🙂

proving a theorem

Theorem: A cat has nine tails.

Proof:

No cat has eight tails. A cat has one tail more than no cat. Therefore, a cat has nine tails.

Performance and NOT the position

Priest dies & is awaiting his turn in line at the Heaven’s Gates. Ahead of him is a guy, nastily dressed, in dark sun glasses, a loud shirt, leather jacket & jeans.

Lord Dharamraj asks him: Please tell me who are you, so that I may know whether to admit you into the kingdom of Heaven or not?

The guy replies: I am Banta Singh, taxi driver from New Delhi!

Lord Dharamraj consults his ledger, smiles & says to Banta Singh: Please take this silken robe & gold scarf & enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

Now it is the priest’s turn. He stands erect and speaks out in a booming voice: I am Sant Shiromani Baba so & so, Head Priest of the so & so Temple for the last 40 years.

Lord Dharamraj consults his ledger & says to the Priest: Please take this cotton robe & enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

‘Just a minute,’ says the agonized Priest. How is that a foul mouthed, rash driving Taxi Driver is given a Silken robe & a Golden scarf and me, a Priest, who’s spent his whole life preaching your Name & goodness has to make do with a Cotton robe?

‘Results my friend, results,’ shrugs Lord Dharamraj.

While you preached, people SLEPT; but when he drove his taxi, people PRAYED.

Moral of the story: Its PERFORMANCE & not POSITION that ultimately counts.

Hope you enjoyed reading through and it is not intended to say about the term ‘Appraisal’ 😛

Friends and Acquaintances

Friends and Acquaintances

There is a difference between being an acquaintance and being a friend. An acquaintance is someone whose name you know, who you see every now and then, who you probably have something in common with and who you feel comfortable around.

It’s a person that you can invite to your home and share things with. But they are people who you don’t share your life with, whose actions sometimes you don’t understand because you don’t know enough about them.

On the other hand, a friend is someone you love. Not that you are ‘in love’ with them, but you care about them and you think about them when they are not there. The people you are reminded of when you see something they might like, and you know this because you know them so well. They are the people whose pictures you have and whose faces are in your mind and heart regardless.

Friends are the people you feel safe around because you know they care about you. They call just to see how you are doing, because a friend doesn’t need an excuse. They tell you the truth, the first time, and you do the same. You know that if you have a problem, they are there to listen. Friends are the people who won’t laugh at you or hurt you, and if they do hurt you they try hard to make it up to you. They are the people you love, regardless of whether you realize it.

Friends are the people you cried with when you got rejected from something you really wanted in life and during the last song at a farewell or funeral. They are the people that when you hug them, you don’t think about how long to hug and who’s going to be the first one to let go. Maybe they are the people that hold the rings at your wedding, or maybe they are the people who give you away at your wedding, or maybe they are the people you marry. Maybe they are the people who cry at your wedding because they are happy or because they are proud.

They are the people who stop you from making mistakes and help you when you do. They are the people whose hand you can hold, or you can hug or give them a kiss and not have it be awkward because they understand the things you do and they love you for them. They stick with you and stand by you. They watch you live and you watch them live and you learn from them.

Your life is not the same without them.

I believe you agree with me not just in the way you enjoyed reading through and also you find out how many friends Vs acquaintances you have got! Aint I? 😛

Made in India

There was a Japanese who came to India for sightseeing. On the last day, he hired a cab and told the driver to drive to the Airport. During the journey, a Honda drove past the taxi. Thereupon, the man leaned out of the window excitedly and yelled, ‘Honda, very fast! Made in Japan !!!.

After a while, a Toyota sped past the taxi and again the Japanese man leaned out of the window and yelled, ‘Toyota, very fast! Made in Japan!’ And then a Mitsubishi sped past the taxi. For the third time, the Japanese leaned out of the window and yelled, ‘Mitsubishi, very fast! Made in Japan!’

The driver was a little angry, but he kept quiet. And this went on for quite a number of cars. Finally, the taxi came to the airport. The fare was 800 rupees.

The Japanese exclaimed, ‘What??… so expensive!’ There upon, the driver yelled back, ‘Meter, Made in India VERY VERY FAST !!!!!’
