3 Idiots..a sequel?

Got this mail from a friend of mine today and said that I have to share this. A typical 3 idiots

At Heathrow airport, an announcement goes out over the Public Address system:
'Mr.Rand Chod Kar Sandaas !
Mr. Rand Chod Kar Sandaas - please report to the Reception desk'.

Ranchhodbhai Karsandas, who has just arrived from Surat , goes red with anger.
He goes to the reception, and shouts loudly to the English receptionist.
The following conversation must go into the history books of cock-ups:

Ranchhodbhai: 'Madar Chod ! I am Ranchhod..
Receptionist: 'Mr. Madar Chod Rand Chod ? Sir, that is not the name I have here..I have Mr. Rand Chod Kar Sandaas....

Ranchhodbhai: 'Arrey Bhenchod ! I am NOT Madar chod!!!'
Receptionist: 'So are you Mr. R.A. Ben or Mr. R.A. Chod? Is your surname Ben or Chod ?'

Ranchhodbhai: (now really really pissed off screams his guts out) 'Chootia !

I am Ranchhod..

Receptionist: 'Excellent sir, so who is Chootia then ???'

Whereupon, a Chinese gentleman ambles up to the Reception and asks:

'Were you calling me?'

Receptionist: 'Now, who are you?'

Chinese: 'I am Choo Tia......'

Ranchhodbhai decides to fly back to Surat !!!

The Making of the POT

Hey back after a long time...:-)

Somedays back, had gone to Udaipur, a small sleepy hamlet in the heart of Rajasthan India. Happened to see a potter @ work and suddenly thought of capturing the potter at what did you think when I said "making of the Pot? LOL

Watching deft fingers gently shaping a mound of clay was good but the expressions of the potter at work especially when showing his creation was the best! check it out

Who are we to judge?

Judging people without even knowing who they really are is now a norm of our lives..sometimes our judgement is right and sometimes wrong.  Got this mail forward which i thought to share. have a read

Two Tough Questions

Question 1:

If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had 8 kids already, three who were deaf, two who were blind, one mentally retarded, and she had syphilis, would you recommend that she have an abortion?

Read the next question before looking at the answer for this one.

Question 2:

It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts. Here are the facts about the three candidates.

Candidate A. Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologists. He's had two mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10 martinis a day.

Candidate B He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps untilnoon , used opium in college and drinks a quart of whiskey every evening.

Candidate C He is a decorated war hero. He's a vegetarian, doesn't smoke, drinks an occasional beer and never cheated on his wife.

Which of these candidates would be your choice?

Decide first... no peeking, and then scroll down for the reply.

Answer to Question No. 1

If your answer to the abortion question:

Is YES . . . .. . . you just killed Beethoven the GREAT musician because He was born as the 9th child with above mentioned...

Answer to Question No. 2

Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Candidate B is Winston Churchill.
Candidate C is Adolph Hitler.

Pretty interesting, isn't it?

Makes a person think before judging someone !!!!

By the way, Who are we to judge anyone?
