Mr Anantharaman Subbaraman from Tamil Nadu was waiting for clearence in US airport for over an hour.. 
He went to the counter and asked "why are you not calling my name"?
Officer- "We have been announcing & calling you for so long. Where were you"??
In the meantime announcement came "final call for Mr. 'Anotherman Superman' please board the plane"!

Do you use Gas for cooking?
Please read this and take note. Let this not happen to you.. This could be a common mistake in any household.
This shocking accident
happend.  A housewife died due to burns sustained in the
kitchen. Her husband too was
hospitalized for injuries due to burns while trying to
rescue his wife.

How it happened:
The gas stove was on and cooking in progress. 
The lady observed some cockroaches near
the sink and grabbed a
can of insect killer and sprayed it near the gas stove, which was on. 
There was an explosion and in no time the poor woman was covered in flames, sustaining 65% burns.

 Her husband rushed in, tried to put out the flames and his clothes too caught fire. 
The husband is still in hospital, in the burns ward, 
still unaware that his wife was declared dead on
arrival. 

Let us understand: - All insect killer sprays such as
"Hit", "Mortein" etc. have highly volatile and inflammable solvents.

The atomized nano spray particles spread very rapidly and one spark is enough to ignite this explosive mixture with oxygen present in air. 

Please educate your family & Friends about this and spread the word around....

Please share...
who knows you may save more than a life... 


I just did my part.!

good story. 

Once there was a farmer who discovered that he had lost his watch in the farm. It was not an ordinary watch because it had sentimental value for him.

After searching the hay for a long while,
he gave up and call the help of a group of children playing outside the barn.
He promised them that, the person who found it, would be rewarded.

Hearing this, the children hurried inside the barn, went through and around the hay but still could not find the watch. Just when the farmer was about to give up looking for his watch, a little boy went up to him and asked to be given another chance.
The farmer looked at him and thought, “Why not.? After all, this kid looks sincere enough.”

So the farmer sent the little boy back in the barn. After a while the little boy came out with the watch in his hand.
The farmer was happy and surprised and so he asked the boy, how he succeeded where the rest had failed. 

The boy replied, 
“I did nothing but sit on the ground and listen. In the silence, I heard the ticking of the watch and just looked for it in that direction.”

    Once upon a time ..a small boy named SURESH lived in a tiny village. All his classmates hated him for his stupidity especially his teacher who was always yelling at him "you are driving me crazy SURESH"...


    One day his mother went to check out how he is doing at school and the teacher told her honestly that her son is simply a disaster, getting very low marks and never had she seen such a dumb boy in her whole career...

    The mother could not accept such a feedback and she took her son out from that school. she even shifted to another city ...

    25 years later, that teacher got a cardio disorder and all the doctors have advised her to go for an open heart operation which only one surgeon could perform then..

    Left with no other choice she did it and the surgery was successful ...when she opened her eyes, she saw a handsome doctor smiling to her, being under anesthesia effect, she wanted to thank him but could not talk, in turn, he was staring at her face which started turning blue, she was raising her hand trying to tell him some thing but in vain and eventually died...

    The doctor was shocked and was trying to understand what just happened, till he turned back and saw our friend SURESH working as a cleaner in that hospital who unplugged the ventilator to connect his vacuum cleaner......      
                    
    If you were thinking that SURESH became a doctor, its because you have been watching too many Indian movies, serials or have been reading too many motivational foward messages...
    SURESH is SURESH.

    The last stages of the war in Ramayana.


    Blood flowing like a river. The vanquished Ravana lying on the ground, groanin g in pain, awaiting his death. 


    Rama calls Lakshmana .
    Lakshmana, the ever obedient brother says “Yes brother, what do I have to do”

    Dear Lakshmana, I have a very important job for you. For all his faults, Ravana is still a great man, very learned, full of wisdom. A great Siva Bhakta. A benevolent Chakravarty. Singer, musician, expert in Veena, knows al the Vedas by heart. Please go to him, pay your respects and request him to share his learning before he departs from this world. 


    The ever obedient Lakshmana immediately proceeds to the place where Ravana is lying. He stood near his head. Hearing the footsteps and recognising that Lakshmana is standing near his head, Ravana keeps quiet. 


    Lakshmana waits a long time and returns frustrated. 


    Reports to Rama what happened. Rama, the all knowing, smiles.



    Lakshmana, when you go to someone for learning, you have to stand at their feet, not sit on their head. Learn to pay proper respect to Ravana so that he can impart his learnings. 



    Lakshmana goes back and stands near Ravana’s feet. Looking at Lakshmana, Ravana smiles and welcomes him. 


    Dear brother Lakshmana, welcome. How can I be of service to you asks Ravana. 


    Lakshmana keeps silent. Ravana understands the purpose for which Lakshmana has come. He requests Lakshmana to come near him so that he can whisper in his ears.👂


    Says Ravana, I will teach you the 3 most important things which all must follow in their lives :
    ----
    ----- 
    -----
    1. Please Don’t get hooked to Whatsapp and waste your precious time.


    2. Don’t use Facebook and endanger your privacy


    3. While driving, please don’t use your Mobile.
    You will succeed in your life.

    The on-duty nurse took the anxious young Army Major to the bedside. 

    "Your son is here," she said softly, to the old man lying there on the bed.

    She had to repeat the words several times before the patient's eyes opened. 

    Heavily sedated because of the pain of his heart attack, he dimly saw the young uniformed Major standing outside the oxygen tent. 

    He reached out his hand. 

    The Major wrapped his toughened fingers around the old man's limp ones, squeezing a message of love and encouragement.

    The nurse, observing the touching moments, brought a chair so that the Major could sit beside the bed.

    "Thank you Ma'am !" a polite acknowledgement followed. 

    All through the night, the young Major sat there in the poorly lit ward, holding the old man's hand and offering him words of love and strength. Occasionally, the nurse suggested that the officer move away and rest awhile. 

    He graciously refused.

    Whenever the nurse came into the ward, he was oblivious of her and of the night noises of the hospital - the clanking of the oxygen tank, the laughter of the night staff members exchanging greetings, the cries and moans of the other patients.  

    Now and then she heard him say a few gentle words. The dying man said nothing, only held tightly to his son all through the night.

    Along towards dawn, the old man died. The Major released the now lifeless hand he had been holding and went to tell the nurse.

    While she did what she had to do, he waited...

    Finally, she returned &  started to offer words of sympathy, but the Major interrupted her
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .

    "Who was that man ?" he asked. 

    The nurse was startled, "He was your father," she answered. 

    "No, he wasn't," the Major replied. "I never saw him before in my life."

    "Then why didn't you say something when I took you to him ?"

    " I knew right away there had been a mistake, but I also knew he needed his son, and his son just wasn't here "

    The nurse listened on, confused. 

    " When I realized that he was too sick to tell whether or not I was his son, knowing how much he needed me, I stayed."  

    "So then what was the purpose of your visit here, at the hospital, Sir?",  the nurse queried of him.

    "I came here tonight to find Mr. Vikram Salaria. His son was Killed in J&K last night, and I was sent to inform him."

    'But the man whose hand you kept holding whole night was Mr. Vikram Salaria !"

    They stood in complete silence. There couldn't be anything more assuring for a dying man than his son's hand.

    The next time someone needs you ... just be there & Just stay !!!

    MAKE A LIVING 

    OR

    MAKE A LIFE OUT OF LIVING 

    In 1923, nine of the wealthiest people in the world met at Chicago's Edge Water Beach Hotel .

    Their combined wealth, it is estimated, exceeded the wealth of the government of the United States at that time. These men certainly knew how to make a living and accumulate wealth. Attending the meeting were the following men: 

    1. The president of the largest steel company, 

    2. The president of the largest utility company, 

    3. The president of the largest gas company, 

    4. The president of the New York Stock Exchange, 

    5. The president of the Bank of International Settlements, 

    6. The greatest wheat speculator, 

    7. The greatest bear on Wall Street, 

    8. The head of the World's greatest monopoly & 

    9. A member of President Harding's cabinet. 

    That's a pretty impressive line-up of people by anyone's yardstick. 

    Yet, 25 years later, where were those nine industrial giants? 

    Let’s examine what happened to them 25 years later. 
    1. The President of the then largest steel company (Bethlehem Steel Corp), Charles M Schwab, lived on borrowed capital for five years before he died bankrupt. 

    2. The President of the then largest gas company, Howard Hubson, went insane. 

    3. One of the greatest commodity traders (Wheat Speculator), Arthur Cutten, died insolvent.

    4. The then President of the New York Stock Exchange, Richard Whitney, was sent to jail. 

    5. The member of the US President’s Cabinet (the member of President Harding's cabinet), Albert Fall, was pardoned from jail just to be able to go home and die in peace. 

    6. The greatest “bear” on Wall Street, Jesse Livermore committed suicide. 

    7. The President of the then world’s greatest monopoly, Ivar Krueger, committed suicide. 

    8. The President of the Bank of International Settlement, Leon Fraser, committed Suicide. 

    9. The president of the largest utility company, Samuel Insull, died penniless. 

    What they forgot was how to "make" life while they got busy making money! 

    Money in itself is not evil; it provides food for the hungry, medicine for the sick, clothes for the needy. Money is only a medium of exchange. 

    We need two kinds of education: 

    a) One that teaches us how to make a living 

    and 

    b) One that teaches us how to live.
    ..........

    There are many of us who are so engrossed in our professional material life that we neglect our family, health, social and most important spiritual responsibilities. 

    If asked why we do this, we would reply that "We are doing it for our family". 

    Yet, our kids are sleeping when we leave home. They are sleeping when we come back home!! Twenty years later, we’ll turn back, and they’ll all be gone, to pursue their own dreams and their own lives. 

    Without water, a ship cannot move. The ship needs water, but if the water gets into the ship, the ship will face existential problems. What was once a means of living for the ship will now become a means of destruction. 

    Similarly we live in a time where earning is a necessity but let not the earning enter our hearts, for what was once a means of living will surely become a means of destruction for us as well.

    So take a moment and ask yourself………. 
    Has the water entered my ship?

    I hope Not!

    Long message... Worth reading..
    When Swami Vivekanand was studying law at the University College, London, a white professor, whose last name was Peters, disliked him intensely.

    One day, Mr. Peters was having lunch at the dining room when vivekananda came along with his tray and sat next to the professor.

    The professor said, "Mr Vivekanand , you do not understand. A pig and a bird do not sit together to eat."

    Vivekanandji looked at him as a parent would a rude child and calmly replied, "You do not worry professor. I'll fly away," and he went and sat at another table.

    Mr. Peters,  reddened with rage, decided to take revenge.

    The next day in Class he posed the following question: "Mr.Vivekanand , if you were walking down the street and found a package, and within was a bag of wisdom and another bag with money, which one would you take ?"

    Without hesitating, Vivekanandji responded, "The one with the money, of course."

    Mr. Peters , smiling sarcastically said, "I, in your place, would have taken the wisdom."

    Swami Vivekanand shrugged and responded, "Each one takes what he doesn't have."

    Mr. Peters, by this time was fit to be tied. So great was his anger that he wrote on Swami Vivekanand's exam sheet the word "idiot" and gave it to Swami Vivekanand.

    Vivekanandji took the exam sheet and sat down at his desk trying very hard to remain calm while he contemplated his next move.

    A  few  minutes later, Swami Vivekanand got up, went to the professor and told him in a dignified polite tone, "Mr. Peters, you signed the sheet, but you did not give me the grade."

    Don't mess with intelligent people..

    Once upon a time, there lived a King who, despite his luxurious lifestyle, was neither happy nor contended.

    One day, the King came upon a servant who was singing happily while he worked. This fascinated the King; why was he, the Supreme Ruler of the Land, unhappy and gloomy, while a lowly servant had so much joy?

    The King asked the servant, 'Why are you so happy?'

    The man replied, 'Your Majesty, I am nothing but a servant, but my family and I don't need too much - just a roof over our heads and warm food to fill our tummies.'

    The king sought the advice of his most trusted advisor. After hearing the story, the advisor said, 'Your Majesty, the servant has not yet joined "The 99 Club".'

    'The 99 Club? And what is that?' the King inquired.

    The advisor replied, 'To truly know what The 99 Club is, just place 99 Gold coins in a bag and leave it at this servant's doorstep.'

    When the servant saw the bag, he let out a great shout of joy... so many gold coins. He began to count them. After several counts, he was at last convinced that there were only 99 coins.

    He wondered, 'What could've happened to that last gold coin? Surely, no one would leave 99 coins!'

    He looked everywhere he could, but that final coin was elusive. Finally he decided that he was going to work harder than ever to earn that 100th gold coin.

    From that day, the servant was a changed man. He was overworked, grumpy, and blamed his family for not helping him make that 100th goldcoin. 

    And he had stopped singing while he worked.

    Witnessing this drastic transformation, the King was puzzled. The advisor said, 'Your Majesty, the servant has now officially joined The 99 Club.'

    He continued, 'The 99 Club is a name given to those people who have enough to be happy but are never contended, because they're always wanting that extra 1, saying to themselves:
    "Let me get that one final thing and then I will be happy for life."

    We can be happy with very little in our lives, but the minute we're given something bigger and better, we want more ...and even more! We lose our sleep, our happiness, all these as the price for our growing needs and desires.

    That's "The 99 Club"... Zero Membership fee to enter, but you pay for it for (& with) your entire life!

    My wife called, 'How long will you be with that newspaper? Will you  come here and make your darling daughter eat her food?

    I tossed the paper away and rushed to the scene. My only daughter, Sindu, looked frightened; tears were welling up in her eyes. 

    In front of her was a bowl filled to its brim with curd rice. Sindu is a nice child, quite and  intelligent for her age.

    I picked up the bowl. 'Sindu, darling, why don't you take a few mouthful of this curd rice? Just for Dad's sake, dear'.

    Sindu softened a bit and wiped her tears with the back of her hands. 'Ok, Dad. I will eat - not just a few mouthfuls, but the whole lot of this. But, you should...' Sindu hesitated...... 'Dad, if I eat this entire curd Rice, will you give me whatever I ask for?'

    'Promise'. I covered the pink soft hand extended by my daughter with mine, and clinched the deal.

    Now I became a bit anxious. 'Sindu, dear, you shouldn't insist on getting a computer or any such expensive items. Dad does not have that kind of money right now. Ok?'

    'No, Dad. I do not want anything expensive.'

    Slowly and painfully, she finished eating the whole quantity. I was silently angry with my wife and my mother for forcing my child to eat something that she detested.

    After the ordeal was through, Sindu came to me with her eyes wide with expectation. All our attention was on her.

    'Dad, I want to have my head shaved off, this Sunday!' was her demand.

    'Atrocious!' shouted my wife, 'A girl child having her head shaved off? Impossible!'

    'Never in our family!' My mother rasped. 'She has been watching too much of television. Our culture is getting totally spoiled with these TV programs!'

    'Sindu, darling, why don't you ask for something else? We will be sad seeing you with a clean-shaven head.'

    'Please, Sindu, why don't you try to understand our feelings?' I tried to plead with her.

    'Dad, you saw how difficult it was for me to eat that Curd Rice'. Sindu was in tears. 'And you promised to grant me whatever I ask for. Now, you are going back on your words. 
    "Was it not you who told me the story of King Harishchandra, and its moral that we should honor our promises no matter what?'

    It was time for me to call the shots. 'Our promise must be kept.'

    'Are you out of your mind?' chorused my mother and wife.

    'No. If we go back on our promises, she will never learn to honour her own. Sindu, your wish will be fulfilled.'

    With her head clean-shaven, Sindu had a round-face, and her eyes looked big and beautiful.

    On Monday morning, I dropped her at her school. It was a sight to watch my hairless Sindu walking towards her classroom. She turned around and waved. I waved back with a smile. 

    Just then, a boy alighted from a car, and shouted, 'Sinduja, please wait for me!' What struck me was the hairless head of that boy. 'May be, that is the in-stuff', I thought.

    A lady got out of car and came to me. She said 'Sir, your daughter Sinduja is great indeed! That boy who is walking along with your daughter is my son, Harish. He is suffering from... leukemia'. She paused to muffle her sobs. 

    'Harish could not attend the school for the whole of the last month. He lost all his hair due to the side effects of the chemotherapy. He refused to come back to school fearing the unintentional but cruel teasing of the schoolmates.
    ...... Sinduja visited him last week, and promised him that she will take care of the teasing issue.....

    "But, I never imagined she would sacrifice her lovely hair for the sake of my son! Sir, you and your wife are blessed to have such a noble soul as your daughter.'

    I stood transfixed with tears 'My little Angel, you are teaching me how selfless real love is!'

    The happiest people on this planet are not those who live on their own terms but are those who change their terms for others!
