Jokes Part One!!!


NASA was interviewing professionals to be sent to Mars. Only one could go and couldn't return to Earth.
The first applicant, an engineer was asked how much he wanted to be paid for going. “A million dollars,” he answered, “because I want to donate it to M.I.T."
The next applicant, a doctor, was asked the same question. He asked for $2 million. “I want to give a million to my family,” he explained, “and leave the other million for the advancement of medical research.”
The last applicant was a lawyer. When asked how much money he wanted, he whispered in the interviewer’s ear, “Three million dollars.”
“Why so much more than the others?” asked the interviewer.
The lawyer replied, “If you give me $3 million, I’ll give you $1 million, I’ll keep $1 million, and we’ll send the engineer to Mars.”

A doctor, a lawyer and a mathematician were discussing the relative merits of having a wife or a mistress.
The lawyer says, “For sure a mistress is better. If you have a wife and want a divorce, it causes all sorts of legal problems.
The doctor says, “It’s better to have a wife because the sense of security lowers your stress and is good for your health.
The mathematician says, “You’re both wrong. It’s best to have both so that when the wife thinks you’re with the mistress and the mistress thinks you’re with your wife, you can do some mathematics.

Jeyam Kondan Review


Movie: Jeyam Kondan
Cast: Bhavana,Vinay,LekhaWashington
Direction: R.Kannan
Production: Sathyajothi Films

Vinay as a hero, re-entered into Tamil industry with the new director Kannan by the film Jeyam Kondan. After his father’s death, the hero, returns from London, is planning to become an entrepreneur in India. When he came to know about his father’s second family and his father put up Vinay’s money in a house at Madurai, his future plan is broke into pieces. He later visits Madurai to sell the house where he meets the heroine Bhavana. He finds his step-sister standing as an obstacle with the help of villain to sell the house. She fights for the property saying that it is her father’s property though it was bought in the money of Vinay. Her aim and career is to do her higher studies abroad. At one point, the quarrel between hero and villain ends up with the death of the villain’s wife. Hence the people around the village ask the hero to move away from the village. Though he shifts back to Chennai, the anger of the villain still exists.

Later, in the second half, he comes to know about the death of Lekha’s mother and her letter saying that, her daughter is short tempered but in reality, she is an affectionate and caring one. At one instance the villain sees Vinay and his friend and they chase both of them. His friend falls into the pit in chasing but by a hair strand he escapes off. Later everyone reject Vinay except Bhavana who supports him till the end. Hence, the second half covers the affection of Vinay towards his sister, love towards Bhavana, the way he handles all the problems and also the last fight appears to be a real one unlike in other Tamil films released recently.

Overall, I feel this film looks good and is a mixture of all sentiments. Above all the fight scenes are very less compared to other films in the recent past. Also the stunts performed by Vinay are acceptable. I feel after the release of so many films in the recent times, this film would top the listing.

Laugh More And Live More


Much before the medical science discovered it, Readers Digest came out with the prescription-Laughter is the Best Medicine. Newspapers and magazines which regularly run humor columns are, therefore, doing their bit to keep the readers in good health. Reading light articles, whether they be satirical, comical or just humorous, relieves the tedium of work-a-day world.

It is said that if you laugh for ten minutes you will be in better position to put with pain for two hours. According to US researchers, laughter tones up the system and is a good antidote to stress. Facial laugh muscles instruct the brain to feel ‘feel good’ regardless of how you feel.

According to a French doctor, laughter deepens breathing, improves blood circulation, speeds up the process of tissue healing and stabilizes many body functions. In short it acts as a powerful drug with no side effects. Researchers state that laughter stimulates production of beta-endorphins, natural pain killers in the body and improve digestion. Those who laugh are less prone to digestive disorders and ulcers.

Some people in France have made it a career. You can hire a person who cracks jokes and laughs and promises to make you dissolve your worries in helpless laughter. Even in India you can see in many parks during the morning and evening, classes go on laughter therapy.

Laughing with food in the mouth is dangerous as the foodstuff can get into the wind pipe and may choke the digestive system. Eating, anyway, is a serious business not to be trifled by any jocular diversion. Laughter comes best when it is free of encumbrances, whether it is constricting food or the need to humor the boss.

My Country Flowers


Be it the fragrant flowers or even wild flowers, all of them have been considered to be very important part of the Indian culture. Right from the history till date, one can trace back the uses of flowers in India. Ancient literature in India is replete with names of various flowers. Many mythologies also boast about the use of auspicious flower”Lotus”, which is today also considered as the National flower of India. The historical records prove the uses of various Indian flowers by the people for decoration themselves, the interiors or even as an inspiration for various arts and crafts. Let’s have a look into few of the flowers.

Lotus: It is sacred flower and occupies a unique position in the art and mythology of ancient India and has been an auspicious symbol of Indian culture since time immemorial. Lotus symbolizes divinity, fertility, wealth, knowledge and enlightenment. It holds additional significance for Hindus, as it is a symbol of God and used often in religious practices.

Rose: Roses top the favorite list of many florists, gardeners and flower enthusiasts. Roses come in an assortment of colors like red, yellow, white, pink, etc. Roses are delicate and need much care in growing them for landscape gardening. Like most other plants, roses need exposure to sunlight. Roses are bred by crossing old garden roses with more modern roses to achieve the superb fragrance, delicacy and charm of the old-style blooms and wide color range.

Sunflower: Sunflower is a symbol of peace and it is so brilliant that when one looks at it he remembers peace and sharing is beautiful. Wherever the sunflowers grow there seems to be a golden glow in air. People cannot ignore such a magical sight. People chose the sunflower as a symbol of peace and new life for the entire world to recognize and understand the side effects of war. Sunflowers are tall and bright. Sunflower has variety of uses right from health benefits to food items. The leaves are food for the animals; its yellow petals can turn plain cloth into gold while its seeds are used for food by all living beings.

Marigold: Marigold flower color ranges from yellow and gold to orange, red and mahogany. Several striped, bi color and creamy white cultivators are available. Marigold leaves are finely cut and fern like. They are used for color massing, edging, borders, cut flowers and container plantings. Most varieties bloom early summer until hard coolness. Marigolds require full sun and grow best in well-drained soil with plenty of organic matter.

Jasmine: The majority of species grow as climbers on other plants or on structures. They are often strongly or sweetly scented. The leaves can either be evergreen or deciduous and are opposite in most species. The shape of leaf is simple, trifoliate or pinnate with up to nine leaflets. Some claim that the daily consumption of Jasmine tea is effective in preventing certain cancers. Many species also yield an essential oil which is used in the production perfumes.

Changing Gender Roles?

This is an era of women trying to shatter the glass ceilings and men attempting to cope with ‘over’ successful wives. But while the typical stereotypes may have diluted a bit, scratch the surface and we are where we were a decade ago.The attempts to change gender roles are rather superficial. People are more comfortable with the roles assigned to them. Society is against radical changes. People are secure in their traditional comfort zones.
The media projects the gradual shift in attitude. However, the pertinent question is – Are men really prepared to accept the ‘new’ woman? The answer is oft stated. They are ‘good friends’ with the successful career-woman but to tie the knot they seek a traditional woman who can cook and keep the mother- in- law happy.
Even woman prefer strong dominating men as against today’s ‘metro sexual male’. No woman wants man who is extra sensitive and cares more about the kitchen than his career graph. So, a woman who does not cook is still not deemed a homemaker and an overly emotional man is not considered man enough. A child even today is largely the woman’s responsibility and the man will still think twice before crying like a baby. May be it’s still not time for Parvati to move over.

What's Concentration?


‘To be able to concentrate for a considerable time is essential to difficult achievements’, wrote Bertrand Russell. Yet, the inability to focus our thoughts is a serious, disconcerting problem, for many of us. William James called it the quality that denoted a genius. Sir Isaac Newton often forgot to eat when trying to solve a problem. The magical facility is concentration and the irony is the fact that when we are concentrating, we are oblivious to the fact that we are. It is at this level that inhibitions melt away, pleasure in the task overrides our self-consciousness. The Buddhists call it ‘the loss of self’. The Latin root means ‘centered’.
Concentration is that fragile ability that disappears during an emotional turbulence. When we concentrate, there is an increase in the frequency of brain waves, palms begin to sweat and the heart beat becomes more variable, slowing down in moments just prior to concentration. People say to concentrate we must relax, but the truth is that the earlier stages are characterized by a slight level of anxiety.
There are various factors that affect concentration. An introvert may focus better than a great personality. Moreover concentration is at its peak between the ages of 12 and 40. The afternoon is a slow time for everyone. We work best from mid-morning to mid-afternoon. Concentration spans are not endless. Ideally we need a five minutes break after thirty minutes of focused activity. Some people find it difficult to concentrate after a heavy meal as the digestive processes take over and the level of fat and sugar in the blood stream rises inducing lethargy. Hence balance is the key factor. The inability to concentrate is a symptom of depression. Seemingly unrelated factors such as loneliness, nervousness, perfectionism and worrying can short circuit concentration.
Learned and wise people feel that the strength to concentrate lies within us. This means we can reach our goals, solve problems, read difficult books, if we put aside outside considerations, not by force, but by accepting what is happening in our minds.

Become Most Wanted In College

If you’re very eager to become popular or in other words "THE MOST WANTED" in your college, I give you few suggestions that you can adopt so as to become a college king. Let me straight away highlight you the points to become a college hero.
  1. Have the highest number of arrears so that the principal often calls you and meets you though you don’t like to meet him. This indirectly means your becoming the top notch in your college.
  2. You can fight with a professor or lecturer for a mistake on your part (No shoes or ID cards, etc...) and make sure the fight attracts the whole class and as you know it will spread as fast as light to the whole college. So its simple method that everyone can adopt.
  3. Cut the maximum number of periods and hang around in the college so that you’re caught by higher officials and make sure you do the same for many number of times. Obviously, they will suspend you and your name will be on the notice board that leads to popularity.
  4. Love or make a friendship with a girl who tops the beauty list in your college. Put scene (showing your costly cell phone to her, by the way you speak, your dressing style) so as to impress her and make yourself popular. But make sure that you don’t overact and spoil your image in front of that girl.
  5. You can protest and make strikes against the college say, for example, improper infrastructure, improper facilities offered in college (Hostel) or complaint on often bribe of money and so on. I don’t think everyone can do this.
  6. Make sure you indulge in college fights between various departments. If your not able to fight or you don’t have a perfect physique for it, better join a gang and just make sure your presence in that gang with your voice.
  7. You can often question when you know nothing about the subject during seminars or lectures or conferences held for the whole college. Or try giving answers relevant or irrelevant to the question asked by the speaker which may draw some attraction towards you.
  8. You can participate in various cultural programs and attract a lot people by your skills. But if you don’t have any, it is better to stay away from the contests rather than damaging your image in front of all.
  9. You can be studious and obedient in all your works. Make sure you are a perfect perfectionist and you get the highest marks in your college which is the official way to popularity but most of the people may not be able to do this because it’s the toughest of all(STUDYING). This option gives you the name 'Padips','Rules' and so on. Better Avoid It!!
