Love and Marriage!

Here are some funny ones about marriage...

Everybody says "Love is blind" but fail to add marriage is the real 'eye opener'.

They say marraiges are made in Heaven ....
hmm so are the thunders and lightenings !!

Me and my wife were happy for 23 years...
Then we got married !!

Marriage is the alliance of two people, one of whom never remembers birthdays and the other who never forgets them.

I was incomplete before marriage...
after it, i was finished !!

In marriage one person is always rite the other one is Husband.

Every man should marry after all happiness is not the only thing in life.

Both marriage and death ought to be welcome:
The one promises happiness, doubtless the other assures it !!

It takes two to make a marriage a success
while failure needs just one.

I don't want to marry, there are lot of other ways to ruin one's life.

Getting married is very much like going to a restaurant with friends. You order what you want, then when you see what the other person has, you wish you had ordered that.

Man: Is there any way for long life?
Dr: Get married.

Man: Will it help?
Dr: No, but the thought of long life will never come.

Why do couples hold hands during their wedding?

It's a formality, just like two boxers shaking hands before the fight begins!

Wife: Darling today is our anniversary, what should we do?

Husband: Let us stand in silence for 2 minutes.

It is difficult to understand GOD. He makes such beautiful things as women and then he turns them into wives.

Love and Marriage!

Everybody says "Love is blind" but fail to add marriage is the real 'eye opener'.

Mysterious ways of counting... !@#$%^&*()(*&^%$#@!

"Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts." - Albert Einstein

This man needs no introduction. But then, for people who need it, here is his page from Wikipedia.

Life .. isn't it all about hardships!

Everybody, friends and foes alike, start with asking "Howz life dude?"

Now, How do I answer such a question when trying to live is enormously challenging? Yes, when I say challenging, I mean it in every sense of the word. For there is an adage "Survival of the fittest" that could withstand the turn of millenniums and yet be strikingly truthful. Ever since childhood, I have never seen living been so hard, to tell you all the truth.

Every passing day teaches me something "new", awfully a known fact that should at the first place be not forgotten. There are some basics in life which help one keep life pretty and simple. Only when you feel that you have lost yourself somewhere in the busy and racy life, you try to get back to those days, where you were a charm to be with, where you were such an incredible spirit who kept things simple.

Yes, When I was studying Intermediate, being a rebel all my life for 'no cause', I always questioned those 3Ds that were regarded as essential qualities for a human of some character. 3Ds - Dedication, Determination, Diligence.

I will get back to telling you all how the 3Ds would once again help me change myself into a man of character, doing something worthwhile, all the while!

Finally, my life is hazy, confusing and frustrating. Let me change the course of life altogether!

Rose by another name...

A rose by another name would smell as sweet as it does.

Now thats an excellent quote. Isn't it?

It is a quote given by William Shakespeare, the world-famous poet.

William Shakespeare (baptised 26 April 1564 – 23 April 1616)[a] was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist.[1] He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon" (or simply "The Bard"). His surviving works consist of 38 plays,[b] 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.[2]


Jodhaa .. Akbar

This sunday, I just wanted to watch this movie that is directed by Ashutosh Gowariker. Well, there is a reason for me to watch this movie. Hrithik Roshan stars in this movie and then there are the haunting eyes of Aishwarya Rai. A.R.Rehman already made an indelible impression with his music.

But then there have been instances in the past, despite good reviews and excellent combos, I haven't stepped in the theaters. But then this is a movie on my favorite subject - History. So there is no way that I can miss out on this.

Firstly I am not going to write a review of how the movie is a well-made one with the excellent technicalities that it can boast of. I am certainly amazed if the Emporer Akbar is the man that Hrithik portrayed on celluloid! All through the years, in the books of History, Akbar was a good enough king to be taught to students as one.

But then I cannot comprehend how Akbar can be such a staunch secularist as portrayed when the fact that the Mughal Empire he heads is not so. Akbar has not done much for the Hindus except for the waiver of the dreaded "Jijiya Tax". Well, I do not proclaim to know everything that Akbar did, but then will sure would like to know more about the man.

Pioneers are indeed courageous!

Mark Twain once said, "In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, brave, hated, and scorned. When his cause succeeds, however, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."

How are things going ....?

Well, this is a week that had been utterly disgusting in terms of performance at the right juncture. Though I do not regret about losing a very tough interview, my very first, I do regret about not making a cut in an another interview, the second.

Now that the weekend started, I have a very clearly defined task of preparing well before the next interview, which should be at the start of next week, in time. I always wonder how could a few guys could make such a software that has a world of functionalities defined in it.

This is what wikipedia has to say about the technological evolution of the software SAP.
In 1972 the SAP R/1 solution was launched.[11] Just seven years later, in 1979, SAP launched SAP R/2.[11] In 1981, SAP brought a completely re-designed solution to market. With the change from R/2 to R/3 in 1992, SAP followed the trend from mainframe computing to client-/server architectures.

Hmm, with such an opportunity to work on a very well designed software, a huge responsibility lies on my shoulders not to squander the chance provided. For whom, who has so little of programming history, I regard it as being the " Baptism with fire". But then I hope (foresee!) of coming out with flying colors in this test. Yes, as Stephen King says in The Shawshank Redemption, "hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies."

A bold politician !

After days of rhetoric by one political party after another in India regarding population of Mumbai with Indian citizens other than citizens belonging to Maharastra, here comes a statement from the leader of opposition and 'Prime Minister in waiting' LK Advani.

"ek desh me do vidhan, do pradhan aur do nishan, nahi chalega, nahin chalega (In one country, we will not allow two constitutions, two prime ministers and two flags).”

This is a statement of Jan Sangh. I call that foresight, because to give such a mature statement in the very formative days of a country like India can be called nothing short of "Visionary".

Thank goodness, India is a great democratic nation with a lots of 'checks and balances' and also we have two very good political parties in the BJP and the Congress !?!

Sledging in cricket...

Now these are some famous cricket sledges which I love to read over and over. The 'Gentleman's game' is not that gentle though, as one would like it to be. Not to discredit gentle cricketers, I simply love the way sledging spices up the game.

Ok, Now read them ..

Subba Row vs Trueman

England were playing Pakistan in Headingley and Trueman saw a Pakistani batsman being dropped by Raman Subba Row at first slip. The ball had gone through his legs. After Trueman completed the over, Row went over to Trueman and said, "Sorry Fred, I should've kept my legs together." Trueman, not amused, replied, "Not you bastard. Your mother should have."

A Graceful One

During a county game, the legendary W G Grace was clean bowled by a rookie. Grace was man enough to stand his ground. "They came to watch me bat, not you bowl," he said.

McGrath vs Sarwan

Sarwan and McGrath went eyeball to eyeball in Antigua in May 2003. Sarwan, on his way to a sublime second-innings century that eventually helped Windies chase a record 418, was taunted by McGrath, "So what does Brian Lara's arse taste like?" To this Sarwan said, "I don't know. Ask your wife." McGrath went mad with rage. "If you ever fucking mention my wife again," he said, "I'll fucking rip your fucking throat out."

McGrath Vs Brandes

Long before that exchange, Zimbabwean pacer and chicken farmer Eddo Brandes was once unable to get his bat anywhere near McGrath's deliveries. Frustrated that Brandes was still at it, McGrath went up to him and said, "Why are you so fat?" Brandes replied, "Because every time I make love to your wife, she gives me a biscuit." That had even the Aussie slip cordon in splits.

Rod Marsh vs Botham

When Botham took guard during the memorable Ashes series in 1981 at Headingley, Aussie wicket-keeper Rodney Marsh welcomed with, "So how's your wife and my kids?" Botham replied, "Wife's fine, but your kids are retarded."

Ormond vs Waugh

During the '94 Ashes in Australia, England's James Ormond had just come out to bat. Mark Waugh, fielding at second slip, greeted him by saying, "Mate, what are you doing out here, there's no way you're good enough to play for England." Ormond, who was clued in to the debate in the Australian media over who was the better player between the twins Mark and Steve, replied, "Maybe not. But I'm still the best player in my family."

The Red Cherry

In the middle of a county match between Glamorgan and Somerset, Glamorgan pacer Greg Thomas beat Viv Richards and had the temerity to inform the legend, "It's red, round and weighs five ounces." The next ball was smashed out of the ground, into a river. Richards said, "Greg, you know what it looks like. Now go and find it."

Healy Vs Ranatunga

During the '95-'96 Australia-Sri Lanka series, Aussie wicket-keeper Ian Healy made a comment which was picked up by the host boadcaster Channel 9. It was a particularly hot night in Sydney and Arjuna Ranatunga called for a runner. Healy told him, "You don't get a runner for being an overweight, unfit, fat, ****."

Waugh Vs Parore

Mark Waugh was standing at second slip and Kiwi keeper Adam Parore, who was relatively new to international cricket (this was the '97-'98 series), came to the crease and played and missed the first ball. Mark Waugh said, "I remember you from a couple of years ago in Australia. You were shit then, you're fucking useless now." Parore, who had all the personal details of Waugh, replied, "Yeah, that's me and when I was there you were going out with that old, ugly slut and now I hear you've married her."

Merv Hughes Vs Cronje

During the 1993-94 series between Australia and South Africa in South Africa, Australian pacer Merv Hughes was being carted all around the park in one of the tour games. Cronje hit a number of sixes off Hughes. After another one landed out of the ground, Hughes walked up to Cronje, stood still and let out a fart and said, "Try hitting that for a six." It was five minutes before Cronje and the Aussies could stop laughing.

Steve Waugh vs Parthiv Patel

Sydney, 2004. Steve Waugh's final test. Indians were pressing for victory. As Waugh fought a grim battle to stave off defeat, Patel couldn't stop saying, "Come on, just one more of the famous slog-sweeps before you finish." Waugh, who was visibly annoyed, said, "'Look, show a bit of respect. You were still in your nappies when I made my debut 18 years ago." Parthiv must have been delighted when Waugh perished to the slog-sweep, to be caught by Tendulkar at deep mid-wicket off Kumble.

"If you excel in the pool there is no guarantee you will survive at sea..."

This is a quote that I picked up from a discussion board.

The quote is quite good in its own sense, explains you the importance of performing at crucial occasions rather than those cliche moments when everybody else can do the job.

Indeed an awesome quote.
