Wrote about the stranger in our house...some time back...I guess this is either a prequel or sequel or another "inspired" copy of the decide..but whatever you sure it does make you really introspect or at least think ;-) on:

A teacher from Primary School asks her students to write a essay about what they would like God to do for them...

At the end of the day while marking the essays, she read one that made her very emotional. Her husband, who had just walked in saw her crying and asked her:

- What happened?

She answered :

- Read this. It's one of my student's essays

Oh God, tonight I ask you something very special: Make me into a television. I want to take its place. Live like the TV in my house. Have my own special place, And have my family around ME. To be taken seriously when I talk.... I want to be the centre of attention and be heard without interruptions or questions. I want to receive the same special care that the TV receives when it is not working. Have the company of my dad when he arrives home from work, even when he is tired. And I want my mom to want me when she is sad and upset, instead of ignoring me... And... I want my brothers to fight to be with me... I want to feel that family just leaves everything aside, every now and then, just to spend some time with me. And last but not least make it that I can make them all happy and entertain them...Lord I don't ask you for much... I just want to live like every TV

At that moment the husband said: - 'My God, poor kid. What horrible parents!

She looked up at him and said: - 'That essay is our son's !

The bridge

A bridge over troubled waters..the waters under were certainly looking troubled and gushing all over like hell hath no fury..the road seemed to vanish into the hills which were being swallowed by the clouds...check out more @ some-colors-of-india-especially-dilli

Was sitting watching the rains, mesmerized, thinking about water - how beautiful it is and how eaqually devastating it is...noticing the raindrops falling and splashing..when finally I shook myself out of the watery trance and froze the splash ...

This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.

Management lessons

Another good manangement lesson...from my pop in law in continuation to the other management lessons that he forwarded me before

One of the earlier ones is HERE


Once Pappu started praying to Ravan and after 1 year Ravan was very happy from the bhakti of Pappu.
Then Ravan decides to give 3 vardans to Pappu.

RAVAN: Say vatsa! What you want?

PAPPU: I want 100 vardans.

RAVAN: But I can give you only 3 vardans

PAPPU: But I want 100 vardans.

RAVAN: No child that’s not possible.

PAPPU: No I want 100 means 100

RAVAN: No I can give you only 3. If you want then take or else I am going.

PAPPU: Ok! But what 3 I will ask, you will give me definitely?

RAVAN: Sure it's promise from Rakshas Raj Ravana.

PAPPU: 1st vardan, convert your GADA on shoulder to wooden bamboo stick.

RAVAN: "Tathastu" and his gada turns into a stick.

PAPPU: 2nd Vardan, put that stick in your ass hole ... deep inside ...!!

RAVAN: (confused but ......) "Thathastu" and in great pain asks Pappu to ask for the third vardan .... ASAP ...

PAPPU: Now are you giving me rest 97 vardans or should I convert that stick back to GADA ?

The moral of the Story: Management will not yield to your simple request until u can give pain in their Ass.
