In the unlikely even that you couldn't fathom as to which one represents which culture, blue represents the Western culture and Red typifies the Eastern style.More such cartoons follow in subsequent posts.

East vs West - Anger!

Here's the first one on cultural differences between East & West.

Dhoni to be paid more than Ambani

Dhoni to be paid more than Ambani

We're all used to the quote about "Lies, damned lies and statistics". Here's one more proof about how statistics can be conveniently (mis???)used:

Where is God?

Where is God?

A couple had two little boys, ages 8 and 10, who were excessively mischievous. They were always getting into trouble and their parents knew that, if any mischief occurred in their town, their sons were probably involved.

They boys' mother heard that a clergyman in town had been successful in disciplining children, so she asked if he would speak with her boys. The clergyman agreed, but asked to see them individually. So the mother sent her 8-year-old first, in the morning, with the older boy to see the clergyman in the afternoon.

The clergyman, a huge man with a booming voice, sat the younger boy down and asked him sternly, "Where is God?".

They boy's mouth dropped open, but he made no response, sitting there with his mouth hanging open, wide-eyed. So the clergyman repeated the question in an even sterner tone, "Where is God!!?" Again the boy made no attempt to answer. So the clergyman raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy's face and bellowed, "WHERE IS GOD!?"

The boy screamed and bolted from the room, ran directly home and dove into his closet, slamming the door behind him. When his older brother found him in the closet, he asked, "What happened?"

The younger brother, gasping for breath, replied, "We are in BIG trouble this time, dude. God is missing - and they think WE did it!"

Look at the positive side of things!

Look at the positive side of things!

This is nice - as usual, got through email from a friend - finding something positive out of every negative - which we don't  always manage to do.    

I am thankful...

  1. For the spouse who snores all night, because he is at home asleep with me and not with someone else.
  2. For my teenage daughter who is complaining about doing dishes, because that means she is at home & not on the streets.
  3. For the taxes that I pay because it means that I am employed.
  4. For the mess to clean after a party because it means that I have been surrounded by friends.
  5. For the clothes that fit a little too snug because it means I have enough to eat.
  6. For my shadow that watches me work because it means I am out in the sunshine.
  7. For a floor that needs mopping, and windows that need cleaning because it means I have a home.
  8. For all the complaining I hear about the government because it means that we have freedom of speech.
  9. For the parking spot I find at the far end of the parking lot because it means I can walk & that I have been blessed with transportation.
  10. For the noise I have to bear from my neighbors because it means that I can hear.
  11. For the pile of laundry and ironing because it means I have clothes to wear.
  12. For weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it means I have been capable of working hard.

And, finally, for the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means that I am still alive.

  2. You can always correct the mistake you make


  3. The important thing in life is what you are from inside and not from out side


  4. In life you will undergo painful sharpening which will make you better in whatever you do


  5. Finally, to be the best you can be, you must allow
