Sad smiles, Glad Smiles

Dear Folks,

Today's Economic Times, Chennai carried two articles that caught my attention for entirely different reasons - one made me happy to be an Indian, the other made me feel a bit sad being an Indian. Both brought smiles to me, nevertheless!

Here's the link for the two articles:

  1. Indianness is for showing-off by Bhanu Pande (http://epaper.timesofindia.com/Repository/ml.asp?Ref=RVRDSC8yMDA3LzEwLzI4I0FyMDAyMDE=&Mode=HTML&Locale=english-skin-custom) - made me glad and also proud to be an Indian
  2. Too much monkey business by Mythili Bhusnurmath (http://epaper.timesofindia.com/Repository/ml.asp?Ref=RVRDSC8yMDA3LzEwLzI4I0FyMDA3MDA=&Mode=HTML&Locale=english-skin-custom) - made me sad - that after 60 years after Independence, we are still not able to take better care of our Capital (not a remote village in interior Bihar, TN or Orissa)

Enjoy reading both the above links.

Wit of George Bernard Shaw and Gilbert Keith Chesterton

Here's something that would be of interest to those interested in History, Literature or Sense of Humour. (Those who don't have a sense of humour are unlikely to be visiting this page, in any case!)

Classic were the literary giants, George Bernard Shaw and Gilbert Keith Chesterton. They were diametric opposites, in mind and body. Chesterton was short and rotund, Shaw tall and thin. Both detested each other. One day both approached a narrow London alley from either end. Normally, one waits at one's end for the other to pass, because two persons can't cross without discomfort. Each saw the other, but advanced. Face-to-face midway, glaring but without a word, one finally turned aside to let the other pass. As he brushed past, GK Chesterton bellowed, "I don't give way to fools." Quick was Shaw's whisper: "But I do."

Both were nominated to the House of Lords. Their animosities showed in Parliament. The Great Depression raged and famine threatened. Shaw (the lean, lanky one) waxed eloquent on the famine. Chesterton contemptuously remarked, "There was no need for Hon. Shaw to say so much; anyone seeing him would know Britain faces a famine." Shaw replied, "And anyone seeing the Hon. Chesterton would know who the cause is." Another day, during stormy debate, Chesterton angrily challenged, "I could have swallowed you, Mr. Shaw, and never known I had eaten a thing." Rebutted Shaw, "In that case, you would have more brains in your stomach than you ever had in your head."

Want Excuses? Buy them!

Want Excuses? Buy them!

Take a look at this link:

There's actually someone out there somewhere on Planet earth who is trying to sell "Proper" Excuses to anyone who wants to buy an excuse.

Guess that this can happen only in US of A!

Indian Political Maths

A joke for today - Perhaps an old one for most of you, but please read on, nevertheless:

An Indian politician went to the US to visit his counterpart. When the senator invited him home for dinner, the minister was very impressed by the lavish mansion, grounds and the costly furnishings.

He asked "How can you afford all this on a meagre senator's salary?"

The senator smiled knowingly and took him to the window.

"Can you see the river?"

"Yes"

"Can you see the bridge over it?"

"Of course", said the minister.

"10 percent", said the senator smugly.

Some time later, he had occasion to pay a return visit. The Indian minister lavished all hospitality on him. When they came to his house, the American was stunned by the huge palace the minister had built, glittering with precious art, hundreds of servants etc. etc.

"How can you possibly afford this, on a salary in Rupees?', he asked.

The minister called him to the window.

"See the river over there?"

"Sure", cried the senator.

"Can you see the bridge over it?"

The senator looked, was confused, peered closely and said - "No, I don't see any bridge."

"100 percent", said the minister !!!

In order to be politically correct, I've refrained from mentioning any names for the politicians!

Wonders of Creation - Two Headed Turtle

Wonders of Creation - Two Headed Turtle

We've always known about God's creation being remarkably great in more ways than we can care to visualise. Here's a minor example - That of a two-headed turtle!

Selling Water

Dear Folks,

Articles, Jokes, comments, contributions, write-ups, "snidey remarks" will keep coming up as posts from time to time. If I become adequately tech-savvy, I'll also start posting cartoons and other pictures that can make you smile.

Here goes the first one:

Somebody in London is actually selling "150 ML Spray" of "Aqua" (Plain Old Water) for £ 3.99 (3.99 Sterling Pounds or around Rs. 400) to be used as a "Freshening Face Spray"! Read the following link for further details:

Hope this makes as good a beginning as any for this blog!
