It was a hot day in Chennai as sun was piercing through the glass buildings of the IT Company. Employees were swarming in and after their regular duty of swipe-in, they all marched towards the otherwise-quiet Food Court.
Amidst the crowd and the noises of recorded voice announcing the token numbers, Raja was doing his duties diligently. He was a man in his early thirties and was wearing his usual Blue & White uniform. Though the ambience was colorful, he had no other option. Yes, he was one of the Housekeepers. An example of his perfection in duty is that after he cleans the floor, one can see his/her reflection on it. His other jobs include cleaning the tables & chairs, mopping the floor, washing water glasses etc. And once the breakfast schedule is over, he will move chairs and tables to the corner of the food court using a mini-fork-lift.
Despite his job being so regular & monotonous, there was a peculiar joy with which he worked; He loved his job, worshipped his duty.
However, money was his constraint always. Having two children to raise and to run a family in Chennai with this meager income is no joke. But still he never vents his personal emotions on his work.
Now he had moved all those furniture’s safely by making several rounds on his mini-fork-lift. So he too went to a corner and opened his Tiffin-box, which his wife packs for him. Though he has many friends, he likes to sit alone. While munching his food, he was thinking about the morning events which happened in his house.
Just like any other day, he had woken up early morning and got ready for office briskly. Before leaving, he usually hugs his 6-year old son, who would be sleeping innocently on his bed.
But that particular day, the child was awake. He pulled his dad’s shirt and shied away on to bed. Raja was bit puzzled at his son’s reaction and enquired him what was the matter. The innocent kid replied to him saying he wanted a cake – that too full size. Raja was quite surprised. He did not know that his son had seen his neighbors’ birthday celebration and was attracted to it.
Though it was month-end and Raja was running his family on temporary loans, he did not show any negative reaction to his child. He just promised the kid he will bring home a party cake that very evening and left for office.
Suddenly some voices were heard and Raja returned to his senses. A mini crowd of around 10 people had gathered at a table few yards away from where Raja was sitting. They were fluently speaking in English and pranking jokes at each other. It seemed they had flocked for celebrating their colleague’s birthday. In next few minutes, the birthday boy’s face was fully drenched with cake and snaps were taken from various angles. After spending some more time, the group left the place.
Closing his Tiffin box, Raja washed his hands and immediately took his broom and the mop-stick in his hands. He not just cleaned the cake pieces and the cream spilled all over the floor and the table but also the tears flowing from his eyes.
This is very interesting……….(to women) pls take time to ponder……..(to men) enjoy the story……..
Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch of a neighboring kingdom. The monarch could have killed him but was moved by Arthur’s youth and ideals. So, the monarch offered him his freedom, as long as he could answer a very difficult question. Arthur would have a year to figure out the answer and, If after a year, he still had no answer, he would be put to death. The question was: What do women really want? Such a question would perplex even the most knowledgeable man, And to young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query.. But, since it was better than death, He accepted the monarch’s proposition to have an answer by year’s end.
He returned to his kingdom and began to poll everyone: The princess, the priests, the wise men, and even the court jester. He spoke with everyone, but no one could give him a satisfactory answer. Many people advised him to consult the old witch, For only she would have the answer. But the price would be high as the witch was famous through out the kingdom for the exorbitant prices she charged. The last day of the year arrived and Arthur had no choice but to talk to the witch. She agreed to answer the question, but he would have to agree to her price first.
The old witch wanted to marry Sir Lancelot, The most noble of the Knights of the Round Table, And Arthur’s closest friend! Young Arthur was horrified. She was hunch-backed and hideous, had only one tooth, Smelled like sewage, made obscene noises, etc. He had never encountered such a repugnant creature in all his life. He refused to force his friend to marry her and endure such a terrible burden, But Lancelot, having learnt of the proposal, spoke with Arthur. He said nothing was too big of a sacrifice compared to Arthur’s life.. And the reservation of the Round Table. Hence, a wedding was proclaimed and the witch answered. Arthur’s question thus: “What a woman really wants?”
She said, “Is to be in charge of her own life.”
Everyone in the kingdom instantly knew that the witch had uttered a great truth. And that Arthur’s life would be spared.
And so it was. The neighboring monarch granted Arthur his freedom. And Lancelot and the witch had a wonderful wedding.
The honeymoon hour approached and, Lancelot, steeling himself for a horrific experience, entered the bedroom. But, what a sight awaited him.
The most beautiful woman he had ever seen lay before him on the bed. The astounded Lancelot asked what had happened.
The beauty replied that since he had been so kind to her when she appeared as a witch, She would henceforth be her horrible and deformed self only half the time. And the beautiful maiden the other half. “Which would you prefer? She asked him.
“Beautiful during the day …. or at night?” Lancelot pondered the predicament.
During the day he could have a beautiful woman to show off to his friends, But at night, in the privacy of his castle, an old witch! Or,
Would he prefer having a hideous witch during the day? But by night a beautiful woman for him to enjoy wondrous, intimate moments with?
(If you are a man reading this…) What would YOUR choice be?
(If you are a woman reading this) What would YOUR MAN’S choice be?
What Lancelot chose, is given below:
BUT… make YOUR choice before you scroll down below… OKAY?
Noble Lancelot, knowing the answer the witch gave Arthur to his question, he said that he would allow HER to make the choice herself. Upon hearing this, she announced that she would be beautiful all the time. Because, he had respected her enough to let her be in charge of her own life.
Now… what is the moral to this story?
The moral is…
1) There is witch in every woman no matter how beautiful she is!
2) If you don’t let a woman have her own way, things are going to get ugly.
So, always remember: (for men in reading)
IT’S EITHER “HER WAY” OR IT’S “NO WAY” !!!
Hi All,Government of India has an online Grievance forum at http://www.pgportal.gov.in
Can you imagine this is happening in INDIA?
The govt. wants people to use this tool to highlight the problems they faced while dealing with Government officials or departments like
4) Urban Development
6) Civil Aviation ( Air India , Airports Authority of India , etc)
11) National Saving Scheme of Ministry of Finance
19) Central Universities
20) ESI Hospitals and Dispensaries directly controlled by ESI Corporation under Ministry of Labour
Many of us say that these things don’t work in India .
Couple of months back, the Faridabad Municipal Corporation laid new roads in his area and the residents were very happy about it. But 2 weeks later, BSNL dug up the newly laid roads to install new cables which annoyed all the residents. A resident used the above listed grievance forum to highlight his concern. To his surprise, BSNL and Municipal Corporation of Faridabad were served a show cause notice and the guy received a copy of the notice in one week. Government has asked the MC and BSNL about the goof up as it’s clear that both the government departments were not in sync at all.
So use this grievance forum and educate others who don’t know about this facility.

Two little boys, ages 8 and 10, are extremely mischievous.
They are always getting into trouble and their parents know all about it.
If any mischief occurs in their town, the two boys are probably involved.
The boys’ mother heard that a preacher in town had been successful in
disciplining children, so she asked if he would speak with her boys.
The preacher agreed, but he asked to see them individually.
So the mother sent the 8 year old first, in the morning, with the older boy
to see the preacher in the afternoon.
The preacher, a huge man with a booming voice, sat the younger boy down and asked him sternly, “Do you know where God is?” son!
The boy’s mouth dropped open, but he made no response, sitting there
wide-eyed with his mouth hanging open.
So the preacher repeated the question in an even sterner tone, “Where is God?!”
Again, the boy made no attempt to answer. The preacher raised his voice
even more and shook his finger in the boy’s face and bellowed, “Where is
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

“Love in the heart was not meant there to stay. Love is not love till you give it away”. For love to be ever lasting and eternal every one should be aware of the different stages of love and know its significance. Following are the different phases through which you will travel in your love life and only those who pass it will have an endless love.
Attraction can be defined as something, which is more than friendship and is a step towards getting ready for a relationship. Now attraction is of two types:
a. Physical Attraction – happens when your body reacts to another person. Heart rate increases; temperature rises, palms get sweaty; stomach flutters; throat tightens; etc. This is what will tell you that you are ready for the first contact and also whether you are comfortable in the company of the other person.
b. Emotional Attraction – develops next if the circumstances are right. After being drawn to a person physically, you then begin to come closer. If you find you have things in common — hobbies, ideologies, career, education, or some other common ground — then an emotional attraction starts to form. Sometimes an emotional attraction can occur even when a physical attraction does not. And in this case, the bond will be stronger between the two who connect, since no preconceived notions based on physical appearance has occurred.
Intimacy is something, which a person experiences when you learn to trust and believe your lover. It is a close association with another person of the deepest nature. You share you thoughts, feelings, and dreams. You feel free to discuss everything with this person and you are absolutely comfortable in his company. Thus intimacy develops gradually. If you can’t establish intimacy with your partner, your relationship may work for a while, but is unlikely to endure throughout the years. Intimacy is actually the path to a true, healthy and beautiful relationship.
Romance is the essence of a relationship. Without romance your love life will not exist. Romance is the true identity of your love. It brings out your true self and helps you be a better lover, husband and partner. Romance is a celebration of the life you live as part of a couple. It springs naturally and originates from within your heart. It makes you do things that you possibly couldn’t have imagined to do otherwise. It shows you who you are and reminds you of the role you play in a relationship. Romance is not responsibility but it is caring about your responsibilities towards your lover and partner. Romance is the appreciation of two people who are celebrating the lucky coincidence that they found each other.
The third stage is passion, which basically means a desire for another person, which has grown to an intensity that can’t be ignored. This is often where an emotional relationship turns into a physical relationship. The passion stage is very important. For from here you will understand the true meaning and nature of your relationship. If there is no passion then its best to let go but if there is passion in your relationship then it is time to go on to the next stage.
The last stage is commitment. This is when you know that you want to spend your whole life with this person you love and you can do anything for him. It is when your whole world just revolves round your lover and you take a pledge to remain true to your mate throughout good and bad times, be by his side whenever he needs you.
