Vaaranam Aayiram - A pleasing composition!



Vaarnam Aayiram, the much expected tamil movie, directed by Gautham Menon starring Surya, Sameera Reddy, Divya, and Simran is all set to hit the screens on Oct 28. The much awaited audio songs of the movie released recently has been the buzz amongst the youngsters now. Harris Jeyaraj, a trusted partner of Gautham has composed seven songs for the movie. The movie is supposed to portray the life journey of a person, and the songs are no less ironical to the story line. The songs are quite simple and they do please us quite easily on listening a few times. Gautham - Harris combo has undoubtedly worked magic again.

Due credit should be given to lyricist Thamarai for having penned the feelings of an youngster,a lover and a man who has lost his love in the best possible manner. Its the lyrics that make you like these sings even more. The song that almost catches you the first time is 'Nenjukkul Peidhidum Maamazhai' sung beautifully by Hariharan. This song is in a male perspective, depicting the feelings of a man in love describing the impact of his lover in him. An in a most pleasing manner the songs starts with guitar note that quite touches you. 'Mundhinam Paarthene' another pleasing number depicting the feel of a guy who has fallen in love. The mouth organ piece that goes along with the tune of the song at the end of the song keeps lingering in the ears even after switching to the next track. 'Adiye Kolluthe' a youthful energetic rock number, starts of extremely well with some rocking guitar music and is quite an appealing number sung by Krish, Benny and Shruthi Haasan (though Shruthi seems to pronounce in a rockkish style).'Ava enna',a song with quite a difference to all the previous songs, is a slow song of the gaana style that portrays the grieve of a man who has lost his lover. It seems to get close to ones heart after a few times of listening. Karthik's voice is the biggest plus for the song. 'Yethi yethi'another youthful song, seems to be the introduction song is fast and likeable too. 'Anal Mele' sung by Sudha Ragunathan comes as another surprise which is classical and the feel of the song easily touches the listener. 'Oh Shanthi' carries the theme of the movie sung beautifully by S.P.B.Charan and Clinton. This theme comes up in Nenjathil peidhidum song too but in a different tempo. Both of them are excellent.

What do these songs do to the movie??? They have worked quite well in increasing the expectation for the movie. The songs live up to the expectation and could well prove to be a big plus for the movie. Hope the movie lives up to the expectation too!!

Not really... But how do they feel at home on a festive occasion, or say when their family is celebrating a feast??? Internet chats??

Dada decides to hang up his boots...


Just a day after I had written a post expecting a strong comeback from Dada, he has decided the other way around. On unusual circumstances, Dada had a press meet today and after having answered the questions of the reporters for about 15 mins, just when the meet about to be over Sourav informed the reporters that he has another information to share and that's about his retirement. The news is almost a shock for his fans who had celebrated his comeback a few days ago. Sourav has given himself four test matches to end his blistering career on a high. One can expect him to go out there and enjoy his final moments in the field against the Aussies and let his bat do the talking. The decision comes up as a result of the continuous pressure that the BCCI had been thrusting on him for the past few years. Sourav feels he'll be having a pressure free life out of cricket. True to the core. Am totally against BCCI ill treating the most senior players who have kept up the name of our country high in the World arena. Hope this be the last of such occasion and me like most of the people out there feel, the man doesn deserve such an end to an era which marked the major essential changes in Indian Cricket, most of all showed Indian cricket the Winning way.

Sourav, the most dynamic captains of Indian cricket, has served Indian cricket for almost 14 yrs and its time to celebrate the career that revolutionised Indian cricket. I take up this opportunity to let my thoughts go back to the high points of Dada s career in the upcoming days...

We Salute U DADA.... You are a Legend...

Love your job

Sometimes writing a blog may seem easy when you see from far. After all it's just sitting in one place and writing. But even that can be difficult. Ask a writer and he'll tell you how long he spends with one story. The only difference that is seen is because some people love their jobs. So they don't feel the burden, while others think of it as their duty. That's not how it should be. You should love what you do. If your don't just don't do it. Never look down upon any job. That's what I learned from this.

The Master of Comebacks!!!


The Prince of Kolkata, after a long speculation has been selected for the first two tests of the Border-Gavasakar trophy commencing on Oct 8. After having being left out for Irani cup tie, the chances of Ganguly getting back into seemed faint. Thanks to the new selection committee headed by Krish Srikkanth, Ganguly has now been brought back into the side. Though there is a lot of media speculation about the Voluntary retirement scheme for the senior players, the news that Ganguly is back means a lot to his fans. There have been mixed reactions to such talks throughout the nation, but Captain Anil Kumble s denial of such a scheme has ended all those speculations. Hope this is not the end of road for the 'FAB 5'of Indian Cricket.
To get valuable match practise ahead of the series, Sourav is now in Chennai with the India A side to play against the New Zealand A side. 'When the going gets tough, the tough ones get goin' as they say, nothing least could be expected from this man who has already proved his credentials by making a strong comeback in 2006 in South Africa after being forced out of the side by Greg Chappel in 2005. This could well be a second comeback for Sourav to make it a point to the world that Its too early to write him off. Badly expecting him alongside the Fab 5 of the Indian cricket to go out there and crush the Australians... All de best DADA....

PPC Management !!

When you start out a business what you need maximum for increased sales in publicity. That's the same which applies for online businesses too. In the online world, when you start a business all this publicity gets transferred to traffic. Which means the maximum traffic you have, the more popular your site becomes and the more exposure your product gets in the global market. But what triggers this high traffic. It is not easy for a novice site to gain huge traffic sales in a short while. That is why one turns to marketing sites which enable you to do the same using their techniques such as Search Engine Optimization or PPC Management which denotes Pay-per-Click Management. Advertising by PPC is not as simple as it was sometime ago with more stringent rules coming in for having your site on the top. But you need not worry much about that since when you deal with PepperJam you are provided with professionals who are working out the best algorithms to make sure your site stays on top for all related keywords. In all such cases thus your business is given the upper-hand thus increasing your trade volume hugely.

The Holy Mysteries - Luminous

The next set of mysteries that constitute the Luminous is the portion in which Jesus lived on this and preached to the people. It includes his miracles and important teachings that are to be remembered forever. These are also five in number and as follows:

The Baptism: John the Baptist baptizes Jesus.

The Wedding Of Cana: The first miracle performed by Jesus at the mariage when requestd by his Mother.

The Proclamation Of The Kingdom: Jesus proclaims of his coming again and the doomsday.

The Transfiguration: The appearance of Moses and Elias when Jesus goes to pray with his disciples Peter James and John.

The Institution Of The Eucharist: The Last Supper as known to many. This is when Jesus places the Holy Eucharist before the disciples to be given to all who follow in his path.

Searching for a credit card

An important entity in every person's life is the credit card. No matter what people say about the financial trouble brought by this almost no job seems complete without this and rightly so, since you can't expect someone to carry hard cash along with them when they travel or shop. And getting Credit Cards is also not as easy as saying it. I have tried time and again by various methods to own a card and have found that these don't come easy. But then after all this I got lucky this time when I tried it online.



One point which irritates me to the hilt is spending a lot of time in getting a card. And that I avoided by doing it online. With fast processing and prompt service I was able to search for a credit card which suits my needs to the tee and also will make sure I don't spend more than I need to. Finding the right card is like half job done, the rest was taken care of too. I am done with the entire process within a few minutes. Now I go out shopping with no fear of exceeding my limit. I have someone to take care of that.

The Holy Mysteries - Joyful

Let us start with the Joyful Mysteries. This signifies the time from the appearance of Gabriel to Mother Mary right till the event of Jesus being found in the temple. It is divided as follows into five heads:

The Annunciation: The angel Gabriel announces to Mother Mary the good news of the birth of Jesus in her womb.

The Visitation: Mother Mary pays a visit to her cousin Elizabeth who was also expecting. This child was then known as the forerunner of Jesus Christ, John the Baptist.

The Nativity: The birth of Jesus in a manger in Bethlehem.

The Presentation: The first entry of Jesus in the temple as a baby.

The Finding of Jesus: Jesus gets lost in the temple when he goes there with his parents for a feast. They then find Him there in the company of the priests and other elders of the temple.

Online Shopping Stores

Online Shopping has revolutionized the shopping world with almost every other person channeling their searches to the Internet. And why not. It's fast, simple and no sweat involved. Imagine having to go to those big malls, walk through each store in search of your likes and end up finally with nothing in hand when you get back. There's nothing worse than that.

But when you shop online you need not face all these. Just key in your searches and you get your answers in seconds. You can choose among the variety where you can find almost all the types that are seen in the market. And you get all this sitting in a single place, at your home!

The Prayers of the Rosary

These are the prayers that constitute the Rosary while we go on about the prayers. The main prayer which needs to be repeated at each of the small bead(which constitutes over forty three) is the "Hail Mary" which is as follows:

Hail Mary, full of grace. Our Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, our Lord Jesus Christ. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at all times and at the hour of our death. Amen.

At each of the large beads(which constitute over four) is the "Our Father" which was taught by our Lord Jesus Christ.

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power and glory forever and ever. Amen.

At the crucifix which is the first point where the prayer starts, we start with the Nicene Creed(the shorter version) which comes as follows:

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ His only Son, Our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into Hell; the third day He arose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

In addition there are two prayers to be said before and after we start praying on the rosary.

Prayer Before The Rosary: Queen of the Holy Rosary, you have designed to come to Fatima and Medjugorje, to reveal to the three shepherd children and six visionaries, the treasures of grace hidden in the Rosary. Inspire my heart with a sincere love of this devotion, in order that by meditating on the Mysteries of our Redemption which are recalled in it, I may obtain peace for the world, the conversion of sinners, and the favor which I ask of you in this Rosary (Mention your request). I ask it for the greater glory of God, for your own honor, and for the good of souls, especially for my own. Amen.

Prayer After The Rosary: O God, whose only-begotten Son, by His life, death and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life; grant, we beseech Thee, that, meditating upon these mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

In addition after the first three Hail Mary on the small beads and after every decade we say "Glory be to the Father". Here is this prayer.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Debt Consolidation

Have you felt the weight of credit card debt piling up on you. With increase in loan values and the interests on debts it is a foolish idea to keep many loans or other debts and having to pay them up t varying interest rates. Instead you now have the option to turn to debt consolidation. And what is debt consolidation? It is a new path to debt settlement in which case you are allowed to take a loan to settle off all these sporadic loans you have taken to bring them all under a single head. Thus your rates all come down and thus you are able to handle your finances better. And the latest addition is to provide you with unsecured debt consolidation which allows you to take the loan even in case of bad credits of lack of home ownership. Save yourself and your family from the terror that bankruptcy may bring. Move over to consolidate your debts.

Praying on the Rosary

A very spiritual thing for all Christians, the Catholics especially is the Rosary. Praying on these beads is a very important thing for all in th clan. But how many know about this chain filled with beads and a picture of the cross hanging at the end? So here it is, a small gist on what it signifies.

The rosary consists of beads which are grouped in tens and there are total of five such groups. Each is called as a decade and each decade represents an event or mystery in the life of Jesus. So there are four sets of Mysteries that the Rosary represents under the head of Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful, and Glorious. These mysteries are then said on their specific days. The Apostle's Creed is said on the Crucifix; the Our Father is said on each of the Large Beads; the Hail Mary is said on each of the Small Beads; the Glory Be after the three Hail Mary's at the beginning of the Rosary, and after each decade of Small Beads.

Credit Card Processing

With increased buying power among the people the most favorite pastime they indulge on is shopping. Every woman loves shopping and that's been known for years. Now even men have joined the foray. But is it really possible for us to carry cash along everywhere we go. Especially with the mega purchases that most people make and on the spot splurges it's not an easy, or even wise, decision to carry cash around with you in every step. That's where credit cards come in. Almost all the major players now accept credit cards in their transactions. This proves to be a boon to the customer and they also feel mush more comfortable going about their shopping sprees without the worry of whether they'll run short of cash. This improves the sales of the company and also customer satisfaction. A major reason why all businesses should have their own credit card processing facilities. Get help on retail and merchant sales now.

Management Woes

I'm laughing my head out for this one. It's sad, it's bad but it's true too. This is what the IT revolution has brought about in the world over especially in developing countries where they seem to be showing their dominance more with the rude jolt to their own industries. It's time the managers wake up and find out. This is not funny anymore.





I'm still wondering....

Buy to Let Crisis

A new wave that has swept across the real estate world is the buy-to-let system. Now what is this exactly. That is something I tried to research about, because even I had little or no idea about this entire phenomenon. I just knew that landlords were turning into buy-to-let investors. Oh so this is an investment is it? Ya sure. Buy-to-let refers to buying a piece of land, which is an investment, and the leaving it for rent or lease. So there you have the term. This is not new to the world. It has been there for years. But now with the sudden surge in the demand for rental property almost this has turned into a profitable business. And mortgage providers are cashing in on this. There are a number of companies willing to provide you buy-to-let mortgage to enable you to benefit from this. And for the beginners know more about the deals offered through their buy-to-let guide which claims to help you with doubts you may have initially. For the rest their phone lines are open and running. Call in or log on to get complete details on the offers provided.

Small Joys in Life

The smile on a baby's face, the sound of water gushing out of a stream, the early morning dew, the sound of birds singing, the evening sun sinking, the green pastures, the cock crowing, the wayside flower, a simple hello. All these are simple joys we miss out every day. Recognize them and make life worth living, and more fulfilling.

Realtors in Baltimore

One point I always advise people when they go out on their search to buy new houses is that they better choose them from registered practitioners. Sometimes the buyers never know, but choosing a person who is not qualified for the job means you could be cheated in your bargain and can never claim it back. Not many might know this but just as in any other profession, the real estate business also has registration required for its realtors. In fact it would be better if you approach centers which assure you introducing you to registered people in the job. Browsing through the Net I chanced upon Baltimore Realtors being enrolled in a certain company only once they offered to show their registration or in case they need help in this regard, it was provided. These Realtors of Baltimore could now approach any of the sellers or buyers and lead them to a suitable bargain for both the parties. And since they were qualified enough it meant that belief in their judgement also increased.

Shopping Frenzy

With just days left for me to join my new job can I be blamed for starting to put up a big list specially for the days that I'll be spending there. And so here I found myself loving each moment when I was choosing among the numerous pairs of shoes and jeans and of course t-shirts that I will be sporting there in front of the entire crowd of top class professionals. Should I not look my best. Obviously! And I was doing just that.

Free Cell Phones for Sale!!

I'm terribly gadget crazy and I'm sure many other will share this madness along with me. It's not just a craze, it's an obsession to get the best that the electronic world can guarantee me. And topping this list are cell phones. Whenever I see the caption proclaiming cell phones on sale at any store I find myself drawn into it to try out the latest arrivals. This craze would have made me bankrupt until one day my dad heard someone talk about a store giving off free at&t cell phones. He knew there was some catch to it but still wanted to try it out to see if at least they will be cheaper than the rest of the crowd. And so off we went to check out for ourselves on the claims given out by the store to provide us not only at&t. In fact they were claiming that they could offer all the latest brand names like free Tmobile phones and even free Sprint cell phones. Though of course I didn't believe it completely too I hoped that at least I'll be able to get a cheaper version of the many models that were available in the mobile world. But I got exactly what they had promised to get me. Now when I hold on to the present model I can't believe the rate for which I got it. And has this craze left me? Not at all. Now I'm off again to search for another model. I've just heard that if I'm lucky I may even get free Verizon cell phones. Why worry when it's free.

The Lord's Prayer - With a difference

This is a simple story that might not be true but nevertheless needs to be read by all. It tells of the futility of many of us saying our prayers daily without meaning a word of it and explains what God actually needs. In the story below a boy decides to end the day with the very famous prayer which our Lord taught us "Our Father". He does it in the normal way as he always does at night before going to sleep and thinks nothing of what he says. But today is no ordinary day. The Lord has come to listen to it and this is what ensues. The bold text are replies by God to what the boy prays(which is shown in normal text).

Our Father Who Art In Heaven.

Yes?

Don't interrupt me. I'm praying.

But -- you called ME!

Called you? No, I didn't call you. I'm praying. Our Father who art in Heaven.

There -- you did it again!

Did what?

Called ME. You said, 'Our Father who art in Heaven'. Well, here I am. What's on your mind?

But I didn't mean anything by it. I was, you know, just saying my prayers for the day. I always say the Lord's Prayer. It makes me feel good, kind of like fulfilling a duty.

Well, all right. Go on.

Okay, Hallowed be thy name.

Hold it right there. What do you mean by that?

By what?

By 'Hallowed be thy name'?

It means, it means . . good grief, I don't know what it means. How in the world should I know? It's just a part of the prayer....By the way, what does it mean?

It means honoured, holy, wonderful.

Hey, that makes sense. I never thought about what 'hallowed' meant before. Thanks.

Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.

Do you really mean that?

Sure, why not?

What are you doing about it?

Doing? Why, nothing, I guess. I just think it would be kind of neat if you got control, of everything down here like you have up there. We're kinda in a mess down here you know.

Yes, I know; but, have I got control of you?

Well, I go to church.

That isn't what I asked you. What about your bad temper? You've really got a problem there, you know. And then there's the way you spend your money -- all on yourself. And what about the kind of books you read?

Now hold on just a minute! Stop picking on me! I'm just as good as some of the rest of those people at church!

Excuse ME. I thought you were praying for my will to be done. If that is to happen,
it will have to start with the ones who are praying for it. Like you -- for example.


Oh, all right. I guess I do have some hang-ups. Now that you mention it, I could probably name some others.

So could I.

I haven't thought about it very much until now, but I really would like to cut out some of those things. I would like to, you know, be really free.

Good. Now we're getting somewhere.We'll work together -- You and ME. I'm proud of You.

Look, Lord, if you don't mind, I need to finish up here. This is taking a lot longer than it usually does. Give us this day, our daily bread.

You need to cut out the bread. You're overweight as it is.

Hey, wait a minute! What is this? Here I was doing my religious duty, and all of a sudden you break in and remind me of all my hang-ups.

Praying is a dangerous thing. You just might get what you ask for. Remember, you called ME -- and here I am. It's too late to stop now. Keep praying.....Well, go on.

I'm scared to.

Scared? Of what?

I know what you'll say.

Try ME.


Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us.

What about ... ?


See? I knew it! I knew you would bring her up! Why, Lord, she's told lies about me, spread stories. She never paid back the money she owes me. I've sworn to get even with her!

But -- your prayer --What about your prayer?


I didn't -- mean it.

Well, at least you're honest. But, it's quite a load carrying around all that bitterness and resentment isn't it?

Yes, but I'll feel better as soon as I get even with her. Boy, have I got some plans for her. She'll wish she had never been born.

No, you won't feel any better. You'll feel worse. Revenge isn't sweet. You know how unhappy you are -- Well, I can change that.


You can? How?

Forgive...Then, I'll forgive you; And the hate and the sin, will be Ann's problem -- not yours. You will have settled the problem as far as you are concerned.

Oh, you know, you're right. You always are. And more than I want revenge, I want to be right with You . . (sigh). All right, all right. I forgive her.

There now! Wonderful! How do you feel?

Hmmmm. Well, not bad. Not bad at all! In fact, I feel pretty great! You know, I don't think I'll go to bed uptight tonight. I haven't been getting much rest, you know.

Yeah, I know. But, you're not through with your prayer are you? Go on.


Oh, all right. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Good! Good! I'll do that. Just don't put yourself in a place where you can be tempted.

What do you mean by that?

You know what I mean.


Yeah. I know.

Okay. Go ahead. Finish your prayer.

For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.

Do you know what would bring me glory -- What would really make me happy?

No, but I'd like to know. I want to please you now. I've really made a mess of things. I want to truly follow you. I can see now how great that would be.
So, tell me . . .How do I make you happy?

YOU just did.

While You Were Sleeping

A pretty old movie that I still love watching. This is the story of a girl(played perfect by Sandra Bullock) who first develops a liking for a guy(Peter Gallagher) frequenting the train station where she works. He falls on the tracks one morning and she saves him only to find that he has hurt his head and so is in a coma. His relatives reach the hospital and come to the conclusion that she is his fiance and thus starts the comedy of errors erupting in a cute family background where every person gets to love the new member, including the comatose guy's brother(Bill Pullman). But trouble starts when Sandra gets attracted to the brother more and finds that she may actually be falling in love. Peter wakes up one fine day and Sandra thinks her game is up. But no! He acknowledges her, which actually confuses her even more and she finally makes up her mind on her wedding day, at the altar! This was the most hilarious portion of the movie, where each person says they don't agree to the marriage and finally all the problems are solved. Sandra aptly summarizes the movie when asked "When did you fall in Love?" with the reply "While You Were Sleeping!"

Branded Phones for Free!!

When probed ahead by my sweet cousin I decided to try out this place that she had suggested for me. Claiming that it could provide cell phones for free, and that too branded ones which even included a free Blackberry Curve in its list. I would have normally brushed it aside with no mroe than a yawn if Kate had not pestered me so much. These kids always have an eye for free stuff and they feel that its all true. After all when they hear that free Samsung phones are being provided with no extra baggages will they keep quiet? That is how I found myself in front of the computer seeing if I could get at least free Motorola phones. I checked into the site and my eyes first on the category for free Nokia phones. I was totally taken aback by the models for which this offer was laid down. It included almost all the top ones that I had known of that I made a bet with myself that the lure of free mobile phones was just a cheat. But no it wasn't. As I went about choosing one and going ahead with one of their top items found that it was all for real. As I reached the end of the procedures for procuring it I did feel like I was in a daze. I couldn't make myself believe it. I guess I did have a doubt till the package arrived home. It was only when I felt through my free Palm Centro that I could confirm this had never been a dream. I had chosen the smartest way to buy my cell phone.

Those Days

I love the yonder days when I was a kid because broken limbs are easier to mend that broken hearts. A pretty good saying if you truly understand what is being said in there. And especially if you are in that stage of life where love rules the heart, mind, body and soul. It's the age where nothing else matters much, nothing as much as doing things for the person you love, making them feel special. But along with the joys comes the pain which accompanies you when misunderstandings crop up, mistakes amount up until you feel "I wish I was just a kid, That I never grew up!!"

Pay Day Loans!!

Financial crisis is creeping up in every individual's life and we can see that it is sparing no one neither the common man nor the big daddies of the business. In such cases it is best to remain safe in every dealing that you do. But then it is quite easy to say that we have to limit our expenses or tie our purse strings tighter. There are some occasions when situations get out of hand and at such times we get stranded as to whom to approach to relieve us of this mess. An age old option that people have relied on for long has been the one on Personal Loans. These help us to get rid of simple economic disturbances that we face sometimes, like a high charge on a simple remodeling or a debt consolidation that we want to work out on. Another option that you are provided with is that of Pay Day Loans which allows you to get rid of all those extra bills creeping up on your daily expenses or sudden emergencies in which case you find yourself days away from the next payment that you may get. And hey have you decided to get a new car? forget about the financial crisis looming outside and splurge on yourself for a while. You can chose from the wide ranges of Car Loans that are available to you to make the best use of and make a style statement at home and office.

The most easiest job

I've understood...in just a few days of work(without cash) that the best and easiest job to do in life is to study. You never know how easy it is until you try out something else. Oh yes! I'm just re-framing the famous phrase of all times "The grass is always greener on the other side". It was so much more fun, sitting in the benches, teasing the staff as they teach, eating in class, trying to do our chores right under the professor's nose. I'm missing it now. School or college, both were fun. More so
because I enjoyed both to the maximum. Now sitting all alone, I'm missing that blackboard, the chalk pieces, scratching on the benches, humming in boring classes, eavesdropping on my backbench mates. So many things. When will they come back. Never!

Free Virus Protection

With almost all our important work now being transferred to the computer, this is the item which holds all our documents and numerous files which may even be top secret and top priority. In all the above cases a simple mistake can ruin the entire system, but its' more often not the mistake that we need to be more wry of. It's viruses and bugs that can enter the system and eat up the important data that we have stored within it. This is the reason why your computer needs to be protected with effective Virus protection software. More often we are not ready to spend money on new products when it comes to virus protection. But here is an offer for Free Virus Protection for your system and its associated software. It can be fully believed because this comes from one among the leading providers of software security in the Web world. And once you feel you are satisfied with the product offered you can as well log onto their site and compare their price rate with that of leading players like McAfee and Symantec. You can see that you are provided the same technology for a lesser rate, in right words over 150$ would be saved by you. And all the software that they use employ the latest cutting-edge, deals which have proved to be extremely effective against all the latest bugs which may harm your system.

Living the High Life

Problems may come but u must take it as a " ROYAL CHALLENGE "
Otherwise people will call u an " OLD MONK "
And stick a " BLACK LABEL " on u.

And don't forget the cute little "Black Dog"
Then your life will be like the "Imperial Blue"
And if you do all the above it will add value to your "Signature"

Htdtv contd.

Contrast ratio: This is quite simply how black the blacks are and how white the whites are. So the higher the ratio the better the image. 1:500 no thanks, 1:3,000 yes please.
Now for a bit of personal knowledge. I have no idea wat ATSC means but QAM is Quadrature Amplitude Modulation, considered to be a very bandwidth efficient technique for modulation of signals. Really good but requiring high power to transmit the signals. They provide signals wich have very low error rate of reception. Well guess it wasnt a waste doin ECE. At least im pretty good on the communication front.

Do u no wat HDTV means?

Have u wondered abt HDTV? Now wat is that if u ask do skip this post. But for the record I'll tell u that it means High Density TeleVision. For those who keep getting bombarded with ads about HDTV. Have u tried goin to a store wich sells these. You may find that the clerks really don't know much about them. And tho u some across one that looks interesting, u mite find description is nothing if not confusing. For example: Consider a 42-inch HD LCD set where the specifications say "a resolution of 1,920x1,080. It is compatible with 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p ". Now wat does the i and p mean? Let alone the other numbers. It is said to be compatible to NTSC (recognize that ??), ATSC, and QAM (now there we go !!) And what is Media Connectivity?
Hmmm...I understand. So i'll let u no things as far as i hav read abt the above. I shud thank cnet for all these info.
Ok, lets start with the resolutions/outputs. 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p all refer to the second half (the smaller number) of the resolution, so both 1080i and 1080p would display the resolution 1,920x1,080. Now for P. vs. I. P stands for progressive and I for Interlaced. With I, the image is made up of horizontal lines, these lines are then dived by two (every other, not top and bottom) and the information for these lines is spread over two frames of the video. This saves on storage space, and makes it easier on broadcasting companies, but with decoding of the interlaced video or fast moving scenes you'll see the horizontal lines.Progressive scan on the other hand, each frame has a complete image which it displays, this more powerful hardware to display it without stutters and requires a lot more storage space, but the image is always good.
Compatibility: NTSC refers to a technological format used by the US TV broadcaster i.e. in the UK our TV is broadcast in PAL. NTSC, is fine if one is from the USA. One need not worry about the others because everything you play will be encoded in NTSC. This is also the same for anything 'recorded' in these countries e.g. if you recorded some tv at home in the US then took the vhs tape with you to some freinds or relatives in the UK or japan it would NOT display properly if at all in their VCR, and also if you brought a vcr and/or tv with you from the USA that also would not work even if you had an adaptor for the different electrical plug that the US uses.
Media Connectivity: is quite simply a word used to say the input jacks on the rear and side or front panels. Nowadays with HDTV's there’s a lot more connections to think about. There’s you old S-Video and RGB, these are fine for standard definition video. However for HD video you'll need to use, HDMI, Component, (VGA, DVI these two are PC connectors). HDMI is one large plug (much smaller than Scart though) this will provide the best in video quality allowing you to watch in full 1080p with any interference as it is digital. Component has 5 jacks, 2 for sound and 3 for the image, but as the signal is apologue you may pick up interference.And now for one other thing you may need to know.
Contrast ratio: This is quite simply how black the blacks are and how white the whites are. So the higher the ratio the better the image. 1:500 no thanks, 1:3,000 yes please.
Now for a bit of personal knowledge. I have no idea wat ATSC means but QAM is Quadrature Amplitude Modulation, considered to be a very bandwidth efficient technique for modulation of signals. Really good but requiring high power to transmit the signals. They provide signals wich have very low error rate of reception. Well guess it wasnt a waste doin ECE.

AMAZINGLY SIMPLE HOME REMEDIES

1. If you are choking on an ice cube, don't panic. Simply pour a cup of boiling water down your throat and presto. The blockage will be almost instantly removed.

2. Clumsy? Avoid cutting yourself while slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold them while you chop away.

3. Avoid arguments with your partner about lifting the toilet seat by simply using the sink.

4. For high blood pressure sufferers: simply cut yourself and bleed for a few minutes, thus reducing the pressure in your veins. Remember to use a timer.

5. A mouse trap, placed on top of your alarm clock, will prevent you from rolling over and going back to sleep after you hit the snooze button.

6. If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives. Then you will be afraid to cough.

7. Have a bad toothache? Smash your thumb with a hammer and you will forget about the toothache.

8. Sometimes, we just need to remember what the rules of life really are: You only need two tools: WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

9. Remember: Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.

10. Never pass up an opportunity to go to the bathroom.

11. If you woke up breathing, congratulations! You get another chance.

12. And finally, be really nice to your family and friends; you never know when you might need them to empty your bedpan.

13. The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

Are You so Jobless !!??

It seems so easy for some people to write stories when there actually is nothing to write about. And I've always wondered how they do it, how it comes so easily and naturally to some that they go on and on about nothing in general. What's it that keeps them going? Recently I have understood that at least writing is ok. Some people go on talking about something or the other continuously with no story in it. Now I think that is something. Seriously !! How can you speak about crap for hours together? And there will be people ready to read it too. It's all got to do with how you spin the web. You make it all so colorful and inviting your victims don't bother whether there is any trap within. They just fall through. Probably they get hypnotized by your voice. Or even better they've fallen in love with your expressions. Whatever it is seriously beats me. How do people actually sit through an entire pile of humdrum? For eg. I seriously wonder....How did you people ever get to this bottom line. Where you actually reading this entire thing? One which I wrote just cos I wanted an original post between 2 sponsored ones? Oh wow !!..People are jobless.

Gift of knowing what to give

Well that will be something all of us might have a problem with. A problem we all find hard to deal with. Especially the men. How do we buy a special gift to that special someone to make them feel the best. Or in fact any gift for any person we like. Here are a few ideas to make them feel just right.

  • An album of special photos. An old fashioned CD(probably with your own artwork) of favorite songs, or even a really special childhood book which might pull the right chords.
  • A home-made "voucher" of some kind whether it is for a specially cooked home-dinner followed by a night out at the local park, or simply one which says "I offer my services to shop, clean, babysit for you this entire weekend so you take the day off".
  • Any luxury item that they would never have been able to bring themselves to indulge on-the most special chocolates, a silk scarf, an exquisite jewellery piece.
  • An unusual, unexpected day out - a picnic, night at the theater, an afternoon at a real good spa, a long drive by the beach, that kind of stuff.

Prone to Allergy? Cut out the wine

If your family has a history of allergies or in the case that you yourself suffer from few the best practice to prevent them is cut out the alcohol. Scientists in Spain have found out that even moderate consumption of alcohol may lead to the presence of high levels of IgE antibodies in the blood of people who were prone to allergies such as asthma or eczema. The worst among them has been seen to be red wine, mainly due to its histamine content.

Without the cell

I tried it and emerged successful. I showed my mom I wasn't crazy of this gadget unlike what she thought. Mom had taken my cell away in a fit of anger and felt she'll give it only when I ask. And I didn't. Because I knew that if I do she'll remind me that I can't live without it. But that wasn't true. And true to myself I showed her I didn't need it. I lived an entire week without it. I went to office, came back, and still maintained contact with all my close friends. If not for their persuasion I would never have asked my mom. Guess they were tired of having to call home. But I showed them all who was the winner. I could survive without the so-called 'soul of Maria'.

Adorn with Flowers

Who wont love flowers touching them, smelling them or simply looking at them. So in the same way to increase the feel on your table, try adorning it with fresh flowers. Get this arrangement to add a dash of romance into any party that you may host and enjoy with the flowers. Fill few glass cylinders of length 20-25 centimeters with loose petals from different flowers. Get bright and light colors and mix them together. Mix pink and white or get lavender to play among them. Fill them with water and then place small scented candles in them. In all give it the calm mystic look, increasing the appeal in your room.

Anger takes your breath away

If you're prone to losing your temper, just think about this: Being angry can make your lungs weaker. Many, actually all of us do experience a pinge of shortness of breath when our tempers flare. But we never think much. Well now it's all proved to be true. A survey measuring the lung capacity and rating the hostility of over 670 men over a period of 3 to 8 years has shown that the lung power of those exhibiting high levels of hostility had become significantly worse as compared to those with low ratings. When people get angry their body produces hormones which prepare it to fight. These release chemicals which can cause our bronchial tubes to inflame. The tubes then narrow and this is reason you may feel breathless when angry. However this type of lung damage is tiny compared to the one caused by smoking. Still long-term irreversible damage can occur. So if you hear some unpleasant words don't fly into a rage. Just wait for
sometime, take a deep breath and think whether it is really worth the damage.

Way Out for the Stuffed Out

We all tend to over-eat at special occasions and then afterwards feel guilty or simply so full we cant even do why job. So for such cases after eating, all one needs to do is just have a long walk. After a meal with high fat content the natural antioxidant system in your body is for the time being increased to high proportions. This allows "free radical" molecules to damage your endothelial cells. For those in the ignorant side these are the very cells which play an important part in maintaining the health of your heart and arteries. So that means you might get into problems due to over-eating. But recently researchers have found that exercising after your meal may reverse this process. to augment this the British Heart Foundation has followed up on the studies and found that exercising right after high-fat meal can reduce the harm inflicted by 15%.

Why marinades are worth

Next time you cook red meat, marinade it first. Not only will it taste better, you may also help your heart. According to a recent study, marinating meats may help lower unhealthy cholesterol compounds that form during cooking. Researchers soaked minced pork in soya sauce and sugar and found that when cooked the marinade inhibited the formation of cholesterol oxidation products, which can cause cell damage and increase the risk of heart disease.

Super Soup

Move over, chicken noodle: Gazpacho is the real healing soup. A recent study found that the ones who had soup laden with cucumbers, tomatoes and green peppers for 2 weeks had much higher levels of vitamin C in their blood than others. This vitamin plays and important role in protecting the body against oxidative damage. It helps fight heart disease and high blood pressure by lowering LDL(bad cholesterol) and boosting HDL(good cholesterol). Since cooking reduces the heart-healthy benefits, it may be time to try cold soup year-round.

Matters of Taste

Slimy, gooey or mushy foods are the most likely to disgust. So say researchers involved in an Australian-Canadian joint project. They quashed the long-held belief that taste is what turns the people off food. The strongest component to bring on the "yuck" reaction is the texture. After presenting people with unfamiliar foods, that were labeled with fake names, the researchers asked them what they couldn't eat and why. In the majority of the cases the reasoning was that they didn't like the way the food "felt in their mouth." The researchers feel that it's important to be exposed to different textures from a young age.

Boy or Girl Car!!??

Drivers who give their cars human traits-calling them he or she, or naming them-are more likely to engage in road rage than those who don't. No one likes to admit they're a bad driver, so this gives them an excuse. They blame the car. And folks with bumper stickers or items hanging from the rear view mirror are more likely to be aggressive or impatient.

Typhoon hits China

More than six hundred thousand people evacuated as the tropical storm Fung-wong hit China's south-eastern coast late Monday. The typhoon weakened to a tropical storm as it landed outside Fuqing city in Fujian province bringing strong winds and heavy rains that left two poeple dead. Dozens of flights were also canceled at the province's Fuzhou airport. Power was cut off in Fujian's Puxia county as 15 electricity transmission lines and 498 transformer stations were damaged. No one was reported hurt. Fung-wong, Cantonese for Phoenix, is expected to be the strongest tropical storm so far his year with heavy rains and strong winds in the coastal areas forecast to continue for few days more.

Bachelor No More

Pop Star Justin Timberlake may finally be thinking settling down, as he is hunting for the perfect ring for his girlfriend Jessica Biel. The singer, who was left heartbroken by Britney Spears, seems to have finally found 'the one' in love Jessica Biel. Apparently, the singer has found a clever way to ensure the paparazzi doesn't catch him shopping for the ring at a jewelery store, as the singer is busy shopping online. The '4 minutes' singer is also reportedly eyeing many exotic islands as a venue for his marriage to Biel.

Agatha Christie

I had never been her fan. I had never read many books of hers. And I always felt her style was too high or vague for me. The few stories I had read of hers never clicked for me. But I just read one recently, more because my friend forced me to take it. And I'm thankful. Witness for the Prosecution is definitely one of the best courtroom dramas ever written. It is a short play with the usual dose of suspense and mystery present in every Agatha Christie book. The plot revolves around Leonard Vole who is arrested for a murder that he claims he did not commit. The facts are against him and he trusts his wife to bail him out. But then things turn out worse for him when his wife ends up as a witness for the prosecution. Why Romaine purposely serves as a witness for the prosecution is revealed only at the end and this was truly the best part. The special 50th edition comes with three other novels. If you've finished with this one start Jeffery Archer's Prisoner of Birth to get the same courtroom feel. A book that changed my opinion of Agatha Christie, so obviously a must read for you.

Heard on the Street

Dr. Marc Faber concluded his monthly bulletin (June 2008) with the following:

" The federal government is sending each of us a $600 rebate. If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, the money goes to China . If we spend it on gasoline it goes to the Arabs. If we buy a computer it will go to India . If we purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to Mexico , Honduras and Guatemala . If we purchase a good car it will go to Germany . If we purchase useless crap it will go to Taiwan and none of it will help the American economy. The only way to keep that money here at home is to spend it on prostitutes and beer, since these are the only products still produced in US. I've been doing my part."

God's Sense of Humour

God was in the process of creating the universe.And he was explaining to his subordinates, "Look everything should be in balance.

For example, after every 10 deer there should be a lion.

Look here my fellow angels, here is the country of the United States. I have blessed them with prosperity and money. But at the same time I have given them insecurity and tension....

And here is Africa. I have given them beautiful nature. But at the same time, I have given them climatic extremes.

And here is South America. I have given them lots of forests. But at the same time, I have given them lesser land so that they would have to cut off the forests...

So you see fellows, everything should be in balance.

One of the angels asked... "God, what is this extremely beautiful country here?"

God said....... "Ahah.!..that is the crown piece of all. "INDIA", My most precious creation. It has understanding and friendly People. Sparkling streams and serene mountains. A culture which speaks of the great tradition that they live. Technologically brilliant and with a heart of gold.....

The angel was quite surprised:
"But god you said everything should be in balance."



God replied --

"Look at the neighbours I gave them."

God Still Loves the World

Every tiny star that twinkles in the night sky,
Every drop of golden rain.
Every rainbow in the sky,
Every single butterfly,
Tells the fascinating news to those who dare to hope.
And the message is
God still loves the world.

A lyric that caught me the minute I heard it. It's quite simple. Talks about every single gift that nature shows us and ends saying that all this is a sign. A sign that God Loves Us. Man has always been His greatest and most precious creation. He
created Man in His own likeness. When Man erred God was so hurt but He didn't destroy man. Instead God only punished him and sent him out of God's home. But God didn't forsake Man. Nor did He stop His love for Man. He so much loved the world that he
sent His only Son to save us from our death. To give us the new life. He gave us a second chance to help us live anew. How much can we thank Him? No words are enough to sing of His graces. No words enough for His love. No words there are to thank Him.
The only little thing that ewe could do. We better do it well. We have to love the Lord God in the same way with a unblemished heart. He resides in the Holy place. let us make our hearts holy enough for Him.

The Day I Broke Free

I had borne it for so long. It seemed quite alright in the beginning. But how long could I hold myself back and say that all this is just for sometime. Is it rude that I wished to be free? No it's not. I have my own life to live. And I have the choice to decide how to live it. It might be rude for now. But it's the best, for the both of us. Somehow I'm feeling light now, feeling like I'm free, like I was caged fro so long and now given my freedom. Even before I fly away from home. This certain event makes me feel so good, so happy. Is it bad? I don't know. I don't want to know. I just know that I'm happy. And it's something I've not felt for a long time. I'm smiling now, a true smile, from my heart. This is the most important thing. You have a short life to live. It doesn't mean you'll live only to be forty or fifty. Even if you live to be a hundred it is a short life. It's not a thousand. You don't live long enough to see the Harley's comet quite often. As long as you have it, make it fruitful, make it lively. Smile each moment, make others smile, radiate joy in every path. I know Ive taken the best decision in four years. After a string of mistakes, one point I'll always be glad about. I'm loving it.

WiMAX

WiMAX, the Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is a telecommunications technology aimed at providing wireless data over long distances from point-to-point links to full mobile cellular type access. It is based on the IEEE 802.16 standard, which is also called WirelessMAN which stands for Metropolitan Area Network. The name "WiMAX" was created by the WiMAX Forum, which was formed in June 2001 to promote conformance and interoperability of the standard. It was devised to provide wireless broadband access as an alternative to cable and DSL. The standard of Wi MAX is 802.16-2004, which can cover upto 50 Kms radius service area and high data rate upto 70 Mbps in the freq range.
The variations can be noted as below:
802.16-2004 is often called 802.16d, since that was the working party that developed the standard. It is also frequently referred to as "fixed WiMAX" since it has no support for mobility.
802.16e-2005 is an amendment to 802.16-2004 and is often referred to in shortened form as 802.16e. It introduced support for mobility, amongst other things and is therefore also frequently called "mobile WiMAX".
It has wide variety of applications contributed by its wide area coverage and high data rates. These range as follows:
*Services like POTs, Leased lines with G.703, VOIP, Ethernet can be extended.
* connecting the Wi Fi Hot Spots to the internet as back bone.
*Data bandwidth Management features like CIR, PIR & Best effort are supported.
And the places wer it has already shown its effect. Remember the tsunami in December 2004.
WiMAX access was used to assist with communications in Aceh, Indonesia, after all communication infrastructure in the area, other than Ham Radio, was destroyed, making the survivors unable to communicate with people outside the disaster area and vice versa. WiMAX provided broadband access that helped regenerate communication to and from Aceh.
There is no uniform global licensed spectrum for WiMAX, although the WiMAX Forum has published three licensed spectrum profiles: 2.3 GHz, 2.5 GHz and 3.5 GHz, in an effort to decrease cost: economies of scale dictate that the more WiMAX embedded devices (such as mobile phones and WiMAX-embedded laptops) are produced, the lower the unit cost.
The disadvanage-well all coins hav 2 sides. So here goes...A commonly-held misconception is that WiMAX will deliver 70 Mbit/s over 50 kilometers. In reality, WiMAX can do one or the other — operating over maximum range (50 km) increases bit error rate and thus must use a lower bitrate. Lowering the range allows a device to operate at higher bitrates.
So as it can be seen. WiMAX is an emerging technology tho not much in deployment in India will soon cover the entire globe and be an imp part of our mobile systems in a way much similar to Wi-fi now.

How did I land up here

Sometimes you just can't believe how you end up in some situations. Certain things you just don't seem to be able to get out of. That's what I found myself in. A place where I didn't want to be, a situation i could have avoided but didn't. Why? What made me get into a job when all that I wanted to do was sit in the comfort of my home and sleep, eat and most most importantly earn on the computer? Maybe that's what people call fate. And for this single reason I hate fate. I simply HATE FATE! I just want to go to some quiet place and shout out my heart, till my throat is dry and my body is weak. I want to shout out just Konkana Sen Sharma like did in Life in a Metro! That's how much of frustration that I have within me. Oh! Anything for that place.

Eat slowly

You may get heartburn when you eat fatty and spicy foods, so you stay away from them. But new research suggests that if you eat slowly you may reduce or even eliminate your symptoms. It was seen that the number of gastro-oesophagul reflux episodes lowered by 40% on people who took 30 minutes to down a meal of chicken sandwich, French fries and soda as compared to ones who took 5 minutes to do the same. When you eat, the stomach naturally expands to accommodate food. But do it quickly and your stomach stretches too fast, leading to gastro-oesophagul reflux. It is not sure whether easting too fast causes chronic heartburn. But people with heartburn should eat more slowly.

Give your feet what they need

Don't pound the pavement in any old shoe. The right exercise footwear will prevent a plethora of problems. Bruised toenails are regularly seen when people wear too short shoes or compression on joints from too tight ones.You must match your shoe to your exercise. Runners should look for hard soles to sustain vigorous use. If you play squash, look for grip laid out in circles for multi-directional movement. Moreover, anyone exercising for five hours a week or more should change shoes regularly at least yearly once. The shock-absorption compartments and grip will wear and you'll lose stability and control. And never put shoes in the washing machine. It breaks down the fabric and softens the plastic. Scrub them or hose them down outside.

Good Ways to give Bad News

Saying something someone doesn’t want to hear is never easy, but these tips will help:

• Set aside enough time and make sure you won’t be interrupted - turn off your
mobile at the least.
• Rehearse your opening line but get to the point.
• Consider how you frame the news: “For a man of your age, apart from high blood
pressure you’re in good shape ” sounds better than, “You have hypertension,
which can lead to heart disease.”
• Know your facts and be prepared for questions.
• Show you care but don’t mind-read or say how uncomfortable you feel. Focus on
them.

Real-life Exercise

Running on a treadmill going nowhere or pushing weights through mindless repetitions can get so boring. Try functional fitness. You can build strength, agility and stabilizing skills in a way that carries over into everyday life. You lift weights so you can tote a heavy bag, or sprint so you can catch a bus. Try these tips from trainer Juan Carlos Santana, an expert on this craze:

Lift weights standing up: This forces your core (abdominal and back) muscles to work. A strong core helps you lift heavy loads without hurting your back.


Do real-life cardio:
Set up a course with cones. Run to the first cone as fast as you can. Side-shuffle to the second. Walk backwards to the third. Dash to the fourth. The payoff: You’ll be able o dash after a zig-zagging toddler.

Rotate: Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, knees slightly bent. Hold a weight out in front of you and twist side to side, for better reaching and bending.

Healthy, Happy Trails

Next weekend, leave the gym and take a hike. “There are only a certain number of dumbbells,” says Seth Levy of the American Hiking Society. “But when hiking, you have an infinite variety of workouts and levels-and better scenery than in your gym!” No wonder more people are going out for hiking.

Walking on a flat trial for an hour, a 65-kilo person can burn as much as 300 calories. Pick a more challenging spot with hills, and you burn 445 calories or more. Hiking also builds flexibility and strength. Going uphill firms the calves and backside muscles, while downhill jaunts tone up the quadriceps.

WHY GOD ALLOWS PAIN........

This is one of the best explanations of why God allows pain and suffering that I have seen...
A man went to a barbershop to have his hair cut and his beard trimmed. As the barber began to work, they began to have a good conversation. They talked about so many things and various subjects. When they eventually touched on the subject of God, the barber said: "I don't believe that God exists."
"Why do you say that?" asked the customer.
"Well, you just have to go out in the street to realize that God doesn't exist. Tell me, if God exists, would there be so many sick people? Would there be abandoned children? If God existed, there would be neither suffering nor pain. I can't imagine a loving God who would allow all of these things."
The customer thought for a moment, but didn't respond because he didn't want to start an argument. The barber finished his job and the customer left the shop. Just after he left the barbershop, he saw a man in the street with long, stringy, dirty hair and an untrimmed beard. He looked dirty and unkempt. The customer turned back and entered the barber shop again and he said to the barber: "You know what? Barbers do not exist."
"How can you say that?" asked the surprised barber. "I am here, and I am a barber. And I just worked on you!"
"No!" the customer exclaimed. "Barbers don't exist because if they did, there would be no people with dirty long hair and untrimmed beards, like that man outside."
"Ah, but barbers DO exist! That's what happens when people do not come to me."
"Exactly!" affirmed the customer. "That's the point! God, too, DOES exist! That's what happens when people do not go to Him and don't look to Him for help. That's why there's so much pain and suffering in the world."

BE BLESSED & BE A BLESSING TO OTHERS !!!!!!!

Laptop recommendation for children

With every single person rushing on to become computer savvy, it is a simple problem faced by all parents who see heir kids pestering them to get a laptop all for their own. When any parent finally decides on giving their kids one they are suck with which one is more efficient. And for help they end up asking people who in turn question them on why they want to purchase laptops for kids so young. Sure, it might sound like a large investment for their age, but mobility is the driver behind the decision especially when people travel a lot.

Putting aside the moral and financial issues revolving around giving computers to children, selecting a laptop computer for anyone of any age can be a difficult task. You can see laptops advertised for as little as $400 (after rebates) to as high as $3000 and more. It is tempting to take the cheap approach, thinking that if they ruin it in a few weeks then you are out only $400 vs. $2000. However, as soon as you mention the word GAMING, it can change the entire scenario depending on the type of game. It would be similar to walking into a car dealer and asking for a car that gets ok mileage, can keep up with traffic on the expressway, is easy to park and primarily used to commute to work… and then adding, I would also like to take it to the track on weekends and race it. The big question is what kind of GAMING. There is one level of gaming like Solitaire, Scrabble and Free Cell which any computer can play and then there are the high end games such as Counter Strike, F.E.A.R and Quake, which can require higher end computers with faster processors, more memory and better video cards. If your children start getting into the higher end games, the type of computer you choose can make a big difference in what they can do and how fast they can do it. Playing some of these games is one thing but actually competing is another.

If you start with the basic laptop for about $500 you typically get a 14.1 or 15.4” screen, low end processor (Celeron or equiv), 1 gig of ram, mid to small mechanical hard drive, Windows Vista Basic and a total weight of about 6 lbs. Now that you have this basic $500 laptop the price starts to increase as you start changing the size and quality of the screen, the overall weight, battery life and the individual components such as Processor, Memory, Video Processor and hard drive. You generally pay extra for either smaller lighter weight models as well as larger screen models. So go ahead and select the best, you will see that laptops are the best investment as of date.

Make flowers last longer

Keep your flowers fresh and extend your pleasure for longer with this homemade recipe. You will need:
1 litre warm water
1/4 teaspoon household bleach
11/2 tablespoons sugar
10 millilitres of vinegar or squeeze a lemon

Dissolve the sugar in the warm water, than add bleach and vinegar. Chill the mixture before use. The sugar serves as an energy source, the vinegar as an acidifier to lower the pH of the water and prevent blockages in the stem, and the bleach works as a bactericide to destroy microscopic bacteria.

The Perfect employee !!

1 Bob Smith, my assistant programmer, can always be found

2 hard at work at his desk. He works independently, without

3 wasting company time talking to colleagues. Bob never

4 thinks twice about assisting fellow employees, and always

5 finishes given assignments on time. Often he takes extended

6 measures to complete his work, sometimes skipping coffee

7 breaks. Bob is a dedicated individual who has absolutely no

8 vanity in spite of his high accomplishments and profound

9 knowledge in his field. I firmly believe that Bob can be

10 classed as an asset employee, the type which cannot be

11 dispensed with. Consequently, I duly recommend that Bob be

12 promoted to executive management, and a proposal will be

13 executed as soon as possible.

Addendum: That idiot was standing over my shoulder while I wrote the report sent to you earlier today. Kindly re-read only the odd numbered lines!

The Hip-Hop violinist

Miri Ben-Ari, 29, grew up near Tel Aviv and paid for her music school fees by winning violin competitions. At age 13 she took a master class with Isaac Stern, the American violin virtuso. After her mandatory two years in the Israeli army, she went to New York and enrolled in Jazz program at New School. She played gigs to survive there, which often meant she skipped classes. After 2 semesters she withdrew. “I failed music,” she says “that really hurt.” Her breakthrough came at a radio station party in 2001. She knew nothing about hip-hop but he crowd went wild. Months later, she appeared as “the Hip-Hop violinist” at Carnegie Hall. She released her first major album in 2005; a follow up is due this year. Now a US citizen, Ben-Ari has not forgotten her roots. She has created a foundation to educate teens about the Nazi genocide. Still, she’s happiest expressing herself with a well-rosined bow: “My violin is my voice.”

Secret of a Happy Married Life

Once I asked my friend, "What is the secret behind your happy married life?"

He replied, "You should share responsibilities with due love and respect to each other. Then absolutely there will be no problems."

I dint understand how and so i asked him to explain. And this was his reply, "In my house, I take decisions on bigger issues where as my wife decides on smaller issues. We do not interfere in each other's decisions."

Still not convinced, I asked him for some examples.

He said," Smaller issues like which car we should buy, how much amount to save, when to visit home town, which Sofa, air conditioner, refrigerator to buy, monthly expenses,what to eat,when to cook,whether to keep a maid or not etc are decided by my wife. I just agree to it"

I was curious."Then what is your role?"

To that he replied," My decisions are only for very big issues. Like whether America is justified in attacking Iran, whether Britain should lift sanction over Zimbabwe, whether to widen African economy,should L.K.Advani lead the NDA,Weather Elections should be held in Karnataka during may or november, whether Sachin Tendulkar should retire etc etc. "Do you know one thing? My wife NEVER objects to any of these decisions".

Thank goodness vehicles run on petrol !!

Over the weekend, I filled up my car's fuel tank, and I thought fuel has become really expensive after the recent price hike.But then I compared it with other common liquids and did some quickcalculations, and I felt a little better.

To know why, see the results below - you'll be surprised at how outrageous some other prices are !

Diesel (regular) in Mumbai : Rs.36.08 per litre

Petrol (speed) in Mumbai : Rs.52 per litre

Coca Cola 330 ml can : Rs.20 = Rs.61 per litre

Dettol antiseptic 100 ml Rs.20 = Rs.200 per litre

Radiator coolant 500 ml Rs.160 = Rs.320 per litre

Pantene conditioner 400 ml Rs.165 = Rs.413 per litre

Medicinal mouthwash like Listerine 100 ml Rs.45 = Rs. 450 per litre

Red Bull 150 ml can : Rs.75 = Rs.500 per litre

Corex cough syrup 100 ml Rs.57 = Rs. 570 per litre

Evian water 500 ml Rs. 330 = Rs. 660 per litre Rs. 500 for a litre of WATER???!!!

And the buyers don't even know thesource (Evian spelled backwards is Naive.)

Kores whiteout 15 ml Rs. 15 = Rs. 1000 per litre

Old Spice after shave lotion 100 ml Rs. 175 = Rs. 1750 per litre

Pure almond oil 25 ml Rs. 68 = Rs. 2720 per litre

And this is the REAL KICKER...

HP deskjet colour ink cartridge 21 ml Rs.1900 = Rs. 90476 per litre!!!

Now you know why computer printers are so cheap ? So they have you hookedfor the ink !

So, the next time you're at the pump, don't curse our honorable Petroleum Minister - just be glad your car doesn't run on cough syrup, after shave,coffee, or God forbid, printer ink !

Wanna lose weight?-Don't swim !!

Swimming is often regarded as a good all-round exercise, and indeed it is useful for some people because the support of the water reduces the impact on joints. But exercise on cold water may not be ideal if you’re trying to lose weight.

Researchers at the University of Florida asked subjects to exercise on a static bike underwater for 45 minutes, first in water at 20degrees C, then in water at 33 degrees C. They also spent 45 minutes just resting. After each session they spent an hour in a room full of food, without being told that their calorie intake would be monitored.

After exercising in cold water the subjects ate 44% more calories than after the warm-water exercise and 41% more than after just resting. It seems that body temperatures affects post-appetite, which may explain a previous study that found women who swam lost less weight than those who ran or cycled.

Favourite authors-John Grisham


John Grisham, was born in Jonesboro, Arkansas, to Southern Baptist parents in a lower middle class family as we call it now. His father was as a construction worker who chipped in as a cotton farmer while his mother was a homemaker. In 1967 the family settled in the town of Southaven, Mississippi, where Grisham graduated High School. by his mother, the young Grisham was an avid reader, and was especially influenced by the work of John Steinbeck whose clarity he admired. In 1977 Grisham received a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting from Mcquades children services. While studying at MSU, the author began to keep a journal, a practice that would later assist in his creative endeavors. He earned his degree from the University of Mississippi School of Law in 1981. During law school Grisham switched interests from tax law to criminal and general civil litigation. Upon graduation he entered a small-town general law practice for nearly a decade in Southaven, where he focused on criminal law and civil law representing a broad spectrum of clients. As a young attorney he spent much of his time in court proceedings.
In 1984 at the De Soto County courthouse in Hernando, Grisham witnessed the harrowing testimony of a 12-year-old rape victim. According to Grisham's official website, Grisham used his spare time to begin work on his first novel, which explored what would have happened if the girl's father had murdered her assailants. He spent three years on A Time to Kill and finished it in 1987. Initially rejected by many publishers, the manuscript was eventually bought by Wynwood Press, who gave it a modest 5,000-copy printing and published it in June 1988.
The day after Grisham completed A Time to Kill, he began work on another novel, the story of a young attorney lured to an apparently perfect law firm that was not what it appeared. That second book, The Firm, became the 7th bestselling novel of 1991. Grisham then went on to produce at least one work a year, most of them widely popular bestsellers. He is the only person to author a number-one bestselling novel of the year for seven consecutive years (1994–2000).
Grisham returned briefly to the courtroom in 1996 after a five-year hiatus. According to his official website, he "was honoring a commitment he made before he had retired from the law...representing the family of a railroad brakeman killed when he was pinned between two cars...Grisham successfully argued his clients' case, earning them a jury award of $683,500" Another tie to the legal community that he continues to hold is his seat on the Board of Directors for the Innocence Project, an organization dedicated to exonerating the innocent through DNA testing after they have been convicted.
He has become very famous in Hollywood circuits with a number of his books being made into movies that have proved to be blockbusters at the Box Office. Its not just the books that seemed to be loved by all but also the characterization with almost all his novels set up in the courtroom set up.

A list of his Bestsellers can be given as follows:

· A Time to Kill

· The Firm

· The Pelican Brief

· The Client

· The Chamber

· The Rainmaker

· The Runaway Jury

· The Partner

· The Street Lawyer

· The Testament

· The Brethren

· The Summons

· The King of Torts

· The Last Juror

· The Broker

· The Appeal

Family Problems

Two men, one American and an Indian were sitting in a bar drinking shot after shot.

The Indian man said to the American, You know my parents are forcing me to get married to this so called homely girl from a village whom I haven't even met once. We call this arranged marriage. I don't want to marry a woman whom I don't love...I told them that openly and now have a hell lot of family problems."

The American said, "Talking about love Marriages...I'll tell you my story. I married a widow whom I deeply loved and dated for 3 years.
"After a couple of years, my father fell in love with my step-daughter and so my father became my son-in-law and I became my father's father-in-law.
My daughter is my mother and my wife my grandmother.
More problems occurred when I had a son. My son is my father's brother and so he my uncle. Situations turned worse when my father had a son.
Now my father's son i.e. my brother is my grandson.
Ultimately, I have become my own grand father and I am my own grandson.

And you say you have family problems..Gimme a break!!"

Money Rules !!

It’s so easy to say that we shouldn’t be money-minded. That money is not everything in the world. Money can buy ‘this’ but not ‘that’ and ‘that’ ends up being more important. But all said and done. There’s no denying the fact that money still rules the world. Every step we take right from when we are born till our death requires money. Money can buy houses but not homes. How many times have we heard this? But then to make a home we first need a house. And here is where money steps in. Everyone wants to be famous for good things and they try their best to show out that money holds no value for them. But its just a miniscule amount of people in this world who can actually give up money and luxury for something. And anyhow my question is why we have to. When we are given the choice of leading a good life and also not feeling for it why does everyone want to go the hard way. Why do you want to shun money when its not necessary. So throw away the goody-goody face and come out to be yourself. The world can’t live without money. Now that’s a fact. Learn to live with it. And please stop blaming money for everything. Even if in a small amount it’s the reason your alive today.
