Balloon

"Madam, Please buy me a balloon. The same beggar kid of the previous post asked me.

Should I repeatedly give him money or asked him to stop begging?

"Madam, Please give me Rs.5/- so that I can eat 'Kurkure'."  A beggar kid asked me.

Should I give me Rs. 5/- for eating junk food or no?

GF's name on hand!

I heard this interesting joke on fm radio.

Once a teenager pierced his hand with a sharp knife and wrote his girlfriend's name. After that he started  crying.
One of his friend asked, "What happened?"
With great difficulty he could only reply, "S........Spelling mistake!!!"

Will he write his GF's name on his other hand? ;)

LOUDSPEAKER

In the morning, loud noise coming from a distance woke me up earlier as a result I had an acute headache. All day I couldn't take a nap just because of the noise from the distant loudspeaker. Although they were playing nice songs but I couldn't enjoy them because they were disturbing me and I couldn't concentrate on my work. At night I couldn't sleep because of the irritating loud noise as I need calm and peaceful place. I closed all the doors and windows of my house and drew curtains thinking that it might help me as the cloth absorbed noise. But there was no change. To pass time I updated my facebook status as

Man's worst invention is 'LOUDSPEAKER'!

Do you agree or disagree with me?

Musical instrument?

Hi Readers.
I am back after a quick break from blogging. Sorry, I was busy to even write about it. All those same problems in business and life made me busy, very busy. Anyways I am back and I will try to write regularly in this space.

I and the kid were watching this old classic movie 'Naseeb' starring Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha, Hema Malini and Reena Roy. As soon as this song begun, the kid asked me "What is the name of this musical instrument that Reena Roy (female actress) is playing in this song?"
I do not know the answer.

Dear Reader, do you know the answer?

Life in a cage?


I drank water from the pot. I didn’t like it as it was warmer because of hot climate outside. Scorching heat made me low. Chirping of birds diverted my attention and I looked towards the sky where I saw three birds exactly like me flying freely. It was only me who was caged and couldn’t fly. The other birds were so happy and lucky and I so unhappy and unlucky!

Suddenly a shikra, a bird of prey came from nowhere and sat on my cage to catch me but couldn’t harm me because of the iron bars between us. It flew away and caught the little one while the other two birds could only scream.

Should I be happy or sad as I live in a cage?

Lap of neem tree!


A peepal sapling has grown in the lap of a large neem tree.

In your opinion, peepal should be transplanted in the field or it should be allowed to grow naturally in the lap of neem tree?

Plants in bottles


One of the corner of my house looks like this. These three bottles contain plants in water and something colourful to beautify them.

What are placed at the bottom of all these bottles to beautify them?

2007


In December, 2006 when I picked out a card from tarot deck was ‘The Hanged Man’ the twelfth card of Major Arcana which shows a man hanging upside down from one foot. He was suspended from a tree. It means transformation, turning around and seeing all the things in new light. A total reversal in life was ahead!
In 2007,
  1. I left my job to learn taxation.
  2. Due to some unavoidable reasons I joined my family business.
  3. For the first time I became owner of a property.
  4. For the first time I fell in love.
  5. I enjoyed my first date.
  6. For the first time I attended a high party.
  7. I learnt share business which I always wanted to.
  8. I met my mentor, guide and best friend.
  9. I bought my first laptop.
Out of these three are lies. ;)

Which year will you consider as turning point of your life?

Wrong parking


On morning walk I saw a new white colored car decorated with vibrant plastic ribbons and a swastik (auspicious sign made by red paste on new belongings) was made on its bonnet. Wow! A brand new car!! Nice Car!!! But what it this white paper on the front glass on driver’s seat side???? A few more steps and now I could read it.
WRONG PARKING. TYRES WILL BE DEFLATED.

What do you think security guards should spare brand new cars or no relaxation for anyone?

Soothing whistle!


I was walking on the side path of a mall and heard soothing whistle. I was too absorbed in my thoughts and calculations that I didn’t bother who it could be. I walked a few more paces and this time whistle started and continued for a long time. Who could whistle breathlessly for such a long time? I turned my head towards the sound. Oh! It was a caged bird!

Knowing this, should I be disappointed or happy?

Organic Spinach


“Do not throw away the four removable plastic containers. Give it to me. You can throw away the outer cover that was used to hold them as it breaks in two pieces and can’t be utilised anymore as a dry fruit keeping tray.” I said and took the four little plastic containers, filled them with soil mixed with decomposed manure and put the spinach seeds in them. I watered them regularly and organic spinach grew ready to be cut.

To beat the inflation prices and to get the vegetables grown without fertilizers and insecticides do you think the only option left is to grow them in what ever available containers/ land or there is any other option also?

Jakhoo Temple


“Look! Look!! Now we can see Lord Hanuman clearly.” A middle aged woman told her son.
“Yes.” Her son replied with his eyes fixed on it.
“It is Jakhoo Temple. There are monkeys every where.”
I overheard this conversation while travelling to Shimla with them in toy train. It was my first time journey by train to this city. Earlier I had visited this city a number of times by car and followed the same route as the path of train and road were side by side but never noticed the idol of Lord Hanuman.

If we travel alone by car our knowledge is somewhat confined for the surroundings whereas if we travel in public transport with lots of people then we come to know about lots of things which otherwise went unnoticed. What do you think?

Pic : It is taken from the toy train showing beautiful view of  Shimla city and Lord Hanuman (orange color idol) at the top right corner of it.

Home Science


One of my batch mates was not interested in doing B.Sc.(Home Science) but was left with no other option except it as she couldn’t get admission anywhere else. Surprisingly she couldn’t develop liking for this subject and most of the time it gave me the feeling that she was doing it unhappily. Recently I came to know that she was a School Lecturer in Home Science.
Whereas I was keenly interested in doing B.Sc. (Home Science) and I didn’t apply for any other course because I wanted to do this only. I made a good career in this field but due to some unavoidable reasons I left this field and entered our family business. 

One who is keenly interested in a particular field has to leave it whereas the one who is not interested in a particular field is continuing career in that particular field. Why?

‘OMG u r famous now haha’ received this DM on Twitter that too a spam. :p

BURFI!


After watching interesting promos of movie BURFI! I wanted to watch the ‘first day first show’ of this movie. Unfortunately I had to attend an unexpected business meeting on that time. For the past ten days I was busy with business attending meetings and more meetings. I was unable to watch it even though a theatre at walk able distance from my house is showing seven shows per day.

Am I lucky that I am so busy in my professional life that I have no time to watch even an Oscar nominated movie from India or am I unlucky that I can’t find time to watch such a good movie?

While surfing old pics in my computer I found this pic which I clicked some time before in hills. It is a temple under construction.

Do you think by using photoshop I can remove/ erase the electric wire spoiling the beauty in this pic or no?

Conquering mind


“When we try to concentrate our mind to a picture then our mind is thinking about that object. No doubt, with practice we can reduce the size of that object to a point but still then our mind is thinking about that point. If that point remains in our mind that means we can’t make our mind ‘Thoughtless’.” Some years back a person asked me. “What do you think can our mind be thoughtless?”

Poster Competition Judge


“After visiting all of our clinics in Gurgaon and Manesar in which all the posters were displayed made by our teams, which one you liked the most?” The owner of Ross Clinics, a chain of multi-facility health clinics asked me.
I pointed towards this poster and said. “I liked this the most.”
“Any specific reason, Ms. Judge?”
“All the posters are pretty nice. But as a judge I have to choose one and only ONE. Right?”
“Absolutely!”
“I liked this poster very much as in it a map is drawn to show all the branches of Ross Clinics as well as there full address is also written. And that will be quiet easier for the clients to find and locate the branch of Ross Clinics nearest to them in Gurgaon and Manesar.”
“hmmm…”
“I will also suggest you to ask Rossmates to make the replica of this poster and display it in all the other clinics. Keep adding more branches to it as and when you open the next.”

Dear readers do you like my decision or no?

Interesting persons


Previous post continued ….

In jam there were two persons whom I found interesting as they were enjoying the situation by keeping themselves busy even in this gandevala jam whereas the rest where irritated with the 'No movement' of vehicles. One was a middle aged lady who was solving sudoku puzzles in a book. And other was a young guy who was clicking the photos of traffic jam from every angle either to send it to his boss as he could not reach on time or uploading it on facebook to share with friends to receive their humorous comments.

What else one can go to enjoy this type of situation?

Irritating traffic jam


From the past four and a half hours my car was in the traffic jam with the result my car had only covered two hundred meters on NH No. 8 which is famous or rather I must said notorious for its kilometres long traffic jams, bahoot he gande vale jams. To divert my mind from the irritating jam I watched green fields of bajara, herd of cows, birds of different sizes and shapes, white butterflies moving here and there, not knowing where and flying clouds in blue sky. Luckily after 35 minutes car moved further and stopped near a shop. Many people who were along with me in that traffic jam got down from cars and bought mineral water, cold drinks and chips from there to quench their thirst and hunger. Seeing the rush, I analysed that by the evening that shop owner would have the sufficient money to open the McDonalds in that place. I had the sufficient water and meal for two days with me so I won’t be contributing in this noble cause.

What one can do when caught in this type of traffic jam; write a blog post like this? ;)

POWER PUMP


“I can’t understand whether the front tyre of my car is punctured or the pressure of air is low in it?” I confusedly utter these words.
“It is not punctured only air pressure is less.”  The kid said after his careful examination. “Wait a minute.”
He ran inside the house and brought a bicycle pump. “My parents gifted me a racing cycle and this air pump on my b’day. I will correct the pressure of air in your car tyre with this pump.”
“This will not work. It is for cycle not for car.” I said.
“It is power pump not an ordinary pump.”
He ignored me, uncapped the nozzle of car tyre and tried to do what he wanted to.
Disappointedly he said “I am unable to adjust the nozzle with the valve of pump with the result there is leakage while filling air.”
“I told you that you couldn’t fill the air with this ordinary pump.”
“This is not an ordinary pump. It is power pump. POWER PUMP!”

How can I convince him that even with POWER PUMP one cannot correct the air pressure in the car tyre?

Right to Information!


“Do you know how to fill a postal order?” Ms. ‘F’ asked.
“Yes. I do.” I said and helped her in filling that form.
“Actually I am filling an application under Right to Information Act (RTI) for the first time and postal order is to be sent with it.”
“What do you wish to know?” I curiously asked.
“Salary of my husband! I am fighting with him in the court!!”

Do you think it is the use or misuse of Right to Information Act?

Shares of Infosys


“Is share market is down today?” I asked Mr. ‘U’ who was watching a business news channel.
“No. It is up, only a few points.” Mr. ‘U’ said. “Infosys is Rs. 75.26 up right now as the decision of a case comes in their favour.”
“I sold all my Infosys shares on the last working day of share market making a small profit.”
“If you have hold the shares for just one more working day then you would have made good profit from them.”

Should I be happy as I made a small profit or should I be sad for not holding the shares for one more working day?

Height of saving!


I placed some biscuits on the newspaper in front of a street dog. He didn’t it. I waited and watched from a distance. A young man came near the dog, let the biscuits fall on the ground by pulling the newspaper from one side. To my surprise he folded the newspaper, put it in his pocket and went away.

Has any reader seen any person doing more saving than this one? ;)

How much it costs?


An elderly man boosted about his financial prowess. “I have four flats in this society, six flats in that society and…….” I calmly listened to him. “I have 500sq yards of plot in Gurgaon. Do you have any idea how much it costs?” He inquired me or to check whether I am listening or not?
I was silent.
He repeated again a bit louder. “Do you have any idea how much it costs?”
Lazily I said, “It depends upon where it is situated.” 
Instead of understanding the deeper meaning of what I meant, he uttered. “It is situated in the city of heart.”
I controlled my laugh, the most difficult task to do on this Earth.
This is 475th post. :D

You n situations

I read these lines somewhere on net.


Difficult and sorrowful situations and experiences come to all in life. In the process of experiencing them, some people become bitter, some better, some weaker, some stronger. 
What YOU become depends on YOU, not on the situation. 


What are your views on this?

Desire 1 : I want to become mother of a child who has distinct laugh like me!
Desire 2 : I wish to ignite myself to illuminate the world!

Which desire is important; selfish desire or desire for social cause?

Back ache

"I am utterly disappointed to see your blog as you have written only a few posts in the past month while I was away on vacation." Mrs. 'G' said.
"I am having severe back ache. The doctor advise me to slash my reading as well as writing hours. I haven't read my blogger friend's blog from a very long time just because of the same reason." I replied..

What can I do so that I can read and write like before?

100 rupee currency note


I opened the pocket of my purse to give change to a shopkeeper. I picked out one hundred rupee note and was bit surprised to see it. Who gave it to me? I couldn’t remember. I put the note back in my pocket and gave another note to the shopkeeper.

Whom do you suggest I must give this note to a relative or a friend?

Electricity Board


“What is the name of these flowers, they are so beautiful?” Miss ‘S’ asked.
“Electricity Board.” I replied.
“What??!??”
“Actually 21years back I went to my friend’s house who lived in the quarters of Electricity Board. I brought a cutting of this plant from there and planted it which only had green leaves and some more green leaves. In 21years I first time saw the plant blooming. That’s why these flowers are so unique.”

Does any of the reader know the correct name of this plant?

Easy or difficult?


Mr. ‘H’ : All u need is to ask a question and the comments start popping up on ur blog!
Me : Ya! A question which answers can’t be found on wikipedia! :)

Do you think it is easy to ask a question which answers even wikipedia doesn’t know or it is really very difficult?

Not picking up the phone!

I called Mr. 'H' twice on Friday. He neither picked up the phone nor called back. Today I called him again. And there was no response.

Is he busy with some important work or ignoring me?

School admission


“How is your younger son?” I asked Mr. ‘Y’ who has recently moved to Gurgaon.
“He is fine and has been admitted to two different schools in class ninth. He will go to both of them for a week or ten days then he will decide which school he wish to continue.”

Do you think admission in two schools means wastage of money or will help in making the child independent in decision taking?

Who is smart?


“Don’t play with the toy so harshly. It will break.” A mother instructed her kid. “It is a baby’s toy.”
“Baby’s toy??? I can’t see any baby in this house.” They were the guest. To confirm the kid went in all the rooms to check if there is any baby. “THERE IS NO BABY IN THIS HOUSE.” He said confidently.
“hmmm……..The baby has gone to the market with her mother. Her mother has to do some shopping.” The mother told a good reason to convince him.
“You have thought a lot before speaking that’s why you are telling a lie.”

Who is smart; mother or the kid?

Orange


“Ma’am what should I name your wi-fi connection?” The staff person of the wi-fi company asked me.
“Orange.” That was the first word that came to my mind.
“Now you can use it, ma’am. It is working.”
I was surprised to see the spelling of ‘Orange’ as ‘oreng’.

Do you think it is pity or witty?

Art and dirt


I couldn’t resist myself from clicking the pic of the beautifully painted tyre of a truck. Intricate designs in vibrant colors were eye catching!

What do you think tyres should be painted so delicately even if they could accumulate dirt and mud while moving on roads or they should be artistically painted as dirt and mud could be removed?

Trailer

http://youtu.be/lbWURFD4vdE

Although I don’t understand Telugu even then on viewing this trailer I can’t resist myself from uploading it as it shows that hero is in love with a girl and villain kills hero and he is born again as a fly to take revenge.

What do you think if one is given a change to be born again to take revenge then what  should be one’s preference to be a louse in villain’s head or tapeworm in his intestine? ;)

Dying woman

“Do you know what happened in Building No. 2?” Mrs. ‘P’ said.
“No. I don’t. I was out of the town for a week.” I replied.
“A young woman jumped from the sixth floor, crowd gathered around her in a few minutes as it was day time. Most of the persons were standing still not doing anything to help her. They didn’t even bother to call police or ambulance. They were just gossiping why a young woman who had a three year old son tried to commit suicide.”
“That’s sad.”
“I took the step to take her to the hospital. In the evening her husband came to my house and surprisingly instead of thanking me he blamed me for taking his wife to a government hospital instead of any reputed private hospital.”
I couldn’t find the right word to utter.
She said with moist eyes. “Do I make a mistake by helping a dying woman?”

Unknown numbers

“I called you a couple of times before from my new number.” I said.
“Actually I do not pick up calls from unknown numbers. Today it is by chance I pick up the phone.” Mr. ‘T’, a reputed businessman replied.

What do you think picking up unknown numbers means call from creditors or picking up phone from strangers is not good for business?

Solitude

There are plenty of loners who chose solitude as their way of life. Solitude has been helpful to many well known writers, philosophers and composers.

What do you think is solitude helpful in making one successful or just kill one slowly deep inside?

Any suggestions what I can do for that poor creature?

Friends

After reading tag by ummon I decided to answer the first two questions. The questions are ‘Name the friend who you have known longest’ and ‘How did you meet?’

I do not have bunch of friends. Like others, I do not have more than thousand friends on my facebook rather only fifty two friends in my friend's list. There are only a few friends that really close to my heart. The friend that I wish to know for longest period or I must say I wish him to be my best friend for ever is Mr. 'Y' in the following posts.

Eating capacity , Betting game , Whistling etc.

I met him when he joined my yoga classes.

Do you want to have thousands of friends who poses to be your friend or only handful who are friends in real terms?

My blank mind

While looking at the stars on a cloudless night, I realised that my mind is blank and can’t find a good topic to write about. In general after continuous writing for some time one goes through this phase. If you wish that I carry on with writing and don’t take a long break then suggest some good ideas.

On which topic(s) you will like to read my views/ experiences or stories? ;)

True / False

If you look back at where you were this time last year, you will probably be surprised at how much things and situations have changed in your life.

After reading this future prediction in the leading newspaper about me, I analysed the following changes took place in my life during the last year.

  1. I shifted to Gurgaon where life is fast, super fast.
  2. My Ex married someone else.
  3. I shaved off my head.
  4. There was addition of a new member in my family.
  5. I fell in love with Mr. ‘H’.
  6. My Ex’s wife ran away with another man.

This is a mixed bag of true and false statements. If two are false which are those? ;)

Ekla Chalo

These days I am enjoying Ravinder Sangeet which is melodious to ears as sugar to tongue. Ekla Chalo song is in Bengali language that I don’t understand even then I enjoy it and have heard it hundred of times.

Do you think music is beyond any language or language bound?

Skin color of Doctor

“Is this a doctor’s residence?” An elderly woman asked me as I opened the gate of my house.

“Yes. It is.” I replied.

“Is he is at home?” She asked looking at the name plate on which doctor’s name was printed.

“Yes, he is at home.” I said with a smile.

“Is the doctor fair or dark colored?”


What should I reply to this stupid question?

Largest society of the town

“Our society has three swimming pools, four lawn tennis grounds, three badminton courts, one basket ball ground, four huge parks, one gym, one table tennis table, two community centres and an open air theatre. It has 24 hour water supply and power back up. It is the largest society of the town!” Mr. ‘N’ said.

“Why water is over flowing from the manhole?” I asked as the nearby manhole was overflowing where we were standing.

“Oho! That. Actually the society doesn’t have a sewerage connection. And the tankers come regularly to take the waste off. Till the tankers come next time they will overflow. ”

Do you think the society have the facilities required for living or not?

Pigeons

I read in the monthly circular of a society ......

There is a growing population of pigeons : Please stop giving them seeds or else there will be pigeon shit everywhere and hard to remove from walls.

What do you think seeds should not be given to pigeons as there population is increased and their shit is hard to remove from walls or they should be at least fed properly as there is a little space left for making nests?

5000 reasons to laugh!

“Chandrika, you can come and join our laughing yoga classes. We do it regularly in the evening from 5 to 6 pm.” Mrs. ‘S’ told. “We do funny exercises and laugh looking at each other. Laughing is good for the mind, face and body; you know that as you are yoga coach.”

“I have 5000 reasons to laugh.” I proudly said.

She looked surprisingly at me with blinking eyes.

“On my blog there are 5000 comments and the comment wrote by Cinner on the previous post was 5000th comment on my blog.”

Do you think one can do sufficient laughing yoga by reading comments on my blog or there is still need of doing laughing yoga by doing funny exercises?

Photograph : My blogger dashboard showing the comment section. 5000 is written on the right side and Cinner's 5000th comment on left side.

Do you read my blog?

"Do you read my blog?" I asked Mr.'A'.
"No. I don't. As you tell less and ask more." He replied.

Do you think I tell less and ask more? ;)

Then?

“I am surprised to know that it is an art to know which animal has passed earlier while moving in the forest. Its scent, footprints and excreta are studied to know all this. Their whereabouts and numbers are also estimated.” Mr. ‘H’ said.

“Who tell you all this?” I asked.

“I read in a book.”

“That’s great!” I moved my laptop and showed him this pic which I clicked some time before. “Do you know which animal is this?”

“Camel?”

“No.”

“Elephant?”

“NO!”

“Then?”

Disappearance of an injured man

"An ambulance took the seriously injured man to some unknown destination, even police can't trace out where." A guy, eyewitness of the accident told me.

Do you think ambulance takes him to save the dying man or to make money with his living organs before he dies?

Namapathy

I have great faith in the power of Mantra and grace of the Lord. I have seen miraculous cures of the hopeless cases even in distant places. I have tremendous faith in healing through prayers - healing of diseases by chanting of Mantras and prayers. The results are wonderful. The Lord's Name is so effective. I call this NAMAPATHY.
These lines I read from 'Autobiography of Swami Sivananda'.

In your opinion can incurable disease be cured by chanting the Lord's Name or no?

Family problems

Two men, one American and an Indian were sitting in a bar and discussing about their family problems…… Shot after shot………

The Indian man said to the American, 'We have problem in India we can’t marry the one whom we love, You know my parents are forcing me to get married to this so called homely girl from a village whom I haven't even met once.' We call this arranged marriage. I don't want to marry a woman whom I don't love... I told them that openly and now have a hell lot of family problems.'

The American said, talking about love marriages... In
America We can marry the one whom we love ……I'll tell you my story. 'I married a widow whom I deeply loved and dated for 3 years. After a couple of years, my father fell in love with my step-daughter and married her, so my father became my son-in-law and I became my father's father-in-law. Legally now my daughter is my mother and my wife my grandmother. More problems occurred when I had a son. My son is my father's brother and so he is my uncle.

Situations turned worse when my father had a son. Now my father's son, my brother is my grandson. Ultimately, I have become my own grandfather and I am my own grandson. And you say you have family problems.'

The Indian fainted........!!! :-o

After reading this somewhere on the net I want to know whether you have any family problems? ;)

A weird thought

Whenever I am ill, my mind loves to fantasise and imagine weird thoughts may be to be away from the pain and anguish. Right now, my mind is drawing an image of aeroplane with 250 persons on it, 100 persons standing in it, 150 sitting on the roof of the main body of aeroplane, 60 on its each wing which is flying high over the empty roads.

With this lots of problems can be solved like

1.No traffic jams on roads

2.Fuel saving

3.Longer distances travel by masses in less time.

What else?

One set of footprints!

While cleaning my wardrobe I found my diary in between the piles of files and books. I opened it. At page No. 73 some lines were written from the book 'Nuggets' ....

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with Lord. Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky. Sometimes there were two sets of foot prints, other times there was only one. This bothered me because I noted that during the low periods of my life when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints.

So I said to Lord, "You promised me that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. But I have noticed that during the most difficult time of my life there has been only one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I have needed you most have you not been there with me?"

Lord replied, "During your times of sufferings when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

In difficult times does this really happens or it is just a good theory to calm the agitated mind?

Love-life

Every man's love-life is interesting. If he doesn't have one, that's interesting. If he has one, that's interesting. And if he has two, that's twice as interesting.
I read these lines in 'A Suitable Boy' by Vikram Seth.

What is your opinion about man's love-life?

Price tag


“Mom, come with me I want to show you something. If we take that home, our home will look beautiful. Mom, please come and have a look at it.” A grown up kid of near about ten or eleven years asked his mother. I overheard the conversation. As mother was busy in shopping he pleaded again. His repeated requests made me curious and when he showed the thing of his interest to her mother I clicked it. The price tag on the swing was Rs. 2,02,500/-.


What do you think mother will buy it for the kid or she will made an excuse where is the place in the house to keep it?

Rejection

“Why are you sad? Business problem? Huh??” Mr. ‘H’ asked.
“My story has been rejected.” I said with dismay.
He patted my shoulder with affection. “The publishers will reject you so many times that you will forget the pain of rejection by your ex. By the way was he really worth of rejecting you?”

My first short story

Yesterday I recieved this mail.

Dear Chandrika,


Thank you for taking the time to submit your work to us.


Unfortunately, we aren't able to accept this story for publication. Don't let this get you down, though. There are many possible reasons for turning down a story, and we regularly turn down great work just because it isn't quite right for us. (Due to time constraints, we're unable to discuss reasons for rejecting specific stories.)


The XYZ submissions team.


Do you think this mail is specially written for my story or it is their regular mail in which they just change the name of the author whose work is being rejected?

Lonely

“It is lonely at the top.” A celebrity wrote.
“It is lonely at the bottom too. :(” A common man commented.

Do you agree or disagree with the common man?

Just a click!


I clicked this simple photo after great effort as this man dressed in langur was crowded with kids, young girls, guys and even aunties and uncles to shake hand with him or to have a click with him. Like langur, he screeched to shoo every one away.

What do you suggest should I also click a photo with him to post it on social networking site or should not have a photo with him as it will look ridiculous?

Haemoglobin & Chlorophyll

“My daughter has cleared the medical entrance exam.” Mr. ‘J’ told me.
“Congrats! What is her name?” I asked.
“Haemoglobin.”
“It is her real name or nick name?”
“Real name. And my son’s name is Chlorophyll.”

Do you think Haemoglobin and Chlorophyll are unique or funny names?

Happy 2012! :)


In a book shop I saw Annual horoscope 2009 by Bejan Daruwalla. Nobody buy it in 2009, 2010 and 2011. Let us hope that someone might buy it in 2012.

Happy 2012! :)
