I'm not suggesting anything

I'm not suggesting anything

Some facts that I was thinking about:

  • I'm an Indian
  • Dr. Manmohan Singh is the Prime Minister of India
  • The Indian Economy has been slowing down
  • Dr. Manmohan Singh recently made a remark about regenerating "ANIMAL SPIRITS" in the context of reviving the economy
  • Dr. Manmohan Singh is a Rajya Sabha MP from Assam
  • Guwahati is the capital of Assam
  • On Monday, July 9, a young girl was molested & stripped in public by 20 thugs @ Guwahati, and it was duly taped and telecast by a TV Channel

Thats it. I do not want to jump to conclusions and talk about anything further.

I'm not suggesting anything.

Yeah, I certainly am not suggesting anything!

Hope that you spent your extra time wisely.

Creative Writing

Creative Writing

While the authenticity of this write-up that I received through email is unknown, there is much for us to learn about the art of sugar-coating.

Enjoy reading:

AUSSIE WAY


No matter what side of the political fence you're on, THIS is FUNNY and VERY telling! It just all depends on how you look at the same things.


Judy Rudd an amateur genealogy researcher in south east Queensland , was doing some personal work on her own family tree. She discovered that ex-Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's great-great uncle, Remus Rudd, was hanged for horse stealing and train robbery in Melbourne in 1889. Both Judy and Kevin Rudd share this common ancestor.


The only known photograph of Remus shows him standing on the gallows at the Melbourne Gaol.


On the back of the picture Judy obtained during her research is this inscription:
'Remus Rudd horse thief, sent to Melbourne Gaol 1885, escaped 1887, robbed the Melbourne-Geelong train six times. Caught by Victoria Police Force, convicted and hanged in 1889.'


So Judy recently e-mailed former Prime Minister Rudd for information about their great-great uncle, Remus Rudd.

 

Believe it or not, Kevin Rudd's staff sent back the following biographical sketch for her genealogy research:

"Remus Rudd was famous in Victoria during the mid to late 1800s. His business empire grew to include acquisition of valuable equestrian assets and intimate dealings with the Melbourne-Geelong Railway.


Beginning in 1883, he devoted several years of his life to government service, finally taking leave to resume his dealings with the Railway.

 

In 1887, he was a key player in a vital investigation run by the Victoria Police Force. In 1889, Remus passed away during an important civic function held in his honour when the platform upon which he was standing collapsed.."


NOW That's how it's done, Folks!

Beauty of English

Beauty of English

Hmm ... ... ...

Interesting, indeed!

A sentence that can be made to have eight different meanings by placing ONE WORD in all possible positions in the sentence: "I hit him in the eye yesterday".

The Query: What is this word?

The Answer: The word is "ONLY".

The Message:

1. ONLY I hit him in the eye yesterday. (No one else did.)

2. I ONLY hit him in the eye yesterday. (Did not slap him.)

3. I hit ONLY him in the eye yesterday. (I did not hit others.)

4. I hit him ONLY in the eye yesterday. (I did not hit outside the eye.)

5. I hit him in ONLY the eye yesterday. (Not other organs.)

6. I hit him in the ONLY eye yesterday. (He doesn't have another eye.)

7. I hit him in the eye ONLY yesterday. (Not today.)

8. I hit him in the eye yesterday ONLY. (Did not wait for today.)

Test of Three

Test of Three

No wonder they call Socrates a wise man!

I certainly wish that I achieve at least 1% of the wisdom that the great Socrates had - in my life time!

(A very interesting conversation !)

In ancient Greece (469 - 399 BC), Socrates was widely lauded for his wisdom. One day the great philosopher came upon an acquaintance, who ran up to him excitedly and said, "Socrates, do you know what I just heard about one of your students...?"

"Wait a moment," Socrates replied. "Before you tell me, I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the Test of Three"

"Test of Three?" "That's correct," Socrates continued.

"Before you talk to me about my student let's take a moment to test what you're going to say. The first test is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?"

"No," the man replied, "actually I just heard about it."

"All right," said Socrates. "So you don't really know if it's true or not. Now let's try the second test, the test of Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about my student something good?"

"No, on the contrary..."

"So," Socrates continued, "you want to tell me something bad about him even though you're not certain it's true?"

The man shrugged, a little embarrassed.

Socrates continued, "You may still pass though because there is a third test - the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about my student going to be useful to me?"

"No, not really..."

"Well," concluded Socrates, "if what you want to tell me is neither True nor Good nor even Useful, why tell it to me at all?"

The man was defeated and ashamed and said no more.

Believe yourselves to be messengers of the good, true and valuable... Happiness, Trust and Worthiness will automatically be in place!!!

Why India should vote against Sri Lanka @ UN

Why India should vote against Sri Lanka @ UN

Sri Lanka just doesn't bother to cooperate with India - even on supposedly trivial matters. For instance, in the sporting arena.

Quite intentionally, they beat the mighty Aussies - just to spite Indians.

A few days later, clearly with similar noble intentions, they lose to the minnows - Bangladesh - again to spite the Indians.

And they have the nerve to seek Indian support at the UN?!?!?!?

Some cheek, I'd say.

Most certainly, the PAWARs-that-be must ensure that we vote against Sri Lanka not only at UN, but wherever else we can!
