Weekends ki kahani

हर weekend पे एक सवाल मेरे दोस्त का.. क्या plan है तेरा इस weekend का?
हर बार की तरह वही reply, अभी तक तो कुछ नहीं है मेरे भाई.
पर Friday night कट जाती है plan करते करते.
एक-आध movie देखते और बात करते करते..

जिनकी होती है girl-friend उनकी तो Friday night bonus होती है.
हम जैसे लोगो के लिए तो बस जुम्मा की रात होती है.
इसीलिए Saturday की सुबह शायद थोड़ी late होती है.
चाय और सुट्टा से दिन की सुरुवात होती है, की plan बनते है
अरे कुछ नहीं तो यार दोपहर तक कपडे धोकर,शाम को shopping mall चलते है

Shopping mall जाने को निकली अपनी टोली,पुराणी jeans और shirt tight है.
क्यों बे तेरे पास कपडे नहीं है, यार इस बार भी कपड़ो की तरह जेब tight है .
चलते चलते पूछा मैंने ,अभी अभी ही तो salary आई है  .
तो बोला दोस्त credit card के साथ साथ तेरा भी तो 5000 लौटाया है.
Purse में फूटी कौड़ी भी नहीं है, तेरी भाभी का photo और credit card है .
Bus का ticket तू दे देना मेरे यार, तू तो मेरा cash-card है.

Shopping mall का अपना ही अलग नजारा है,
इसके बिना तो यहाँ जीना कहा गवारा है .
लोगो के बीच में बस affair ज्यादा लफड़े कम दीखते है
नजर वही रुक जाती है जहा कपडे कम दीखते है.
हर बार सोचता था की, क्यों लोग कपडे हर week खरीदते है.
अब समझा सायद कम पड़ जाते है जब वो इसे पहनते है

कुछ चीज नयी जब दिख जाती है
पर price tag पहुच से बहार जाती है
कोई discount नहीं चल रहा है, फिर भी
Sales-person से discount है क्या?, पूछते है
जब discount होगा तो इतने का होगा calculate करके
अभी अभी तो लिया था यार, ये कह के नजर फेर लेते है
बस खाली हाथ लौट जाना होता है हर बार

चलो आज बहुत हो गया..अब करते है अगले weekend का इंतिजार

Never Panic

In a shop, a man asked for 1/2 kg of butter. The salesperson(a young boy) said," Only 1kg packs were available in the shop."

But the man insisted on buying only 1/2 kg. So the boy went inside to the manager's room and said ,"An idiot outside wants to buy only 1/2 kg of butter". To his surprise, the customer was standing behind him. and so the boy added immediately, "And this gentleman wants to buy the other half!!!!!!".

After the customer left, the manager said to  the young boy, "You have saved your position by being clever enough at the right time. Where do you come from?" To this the boy said, "I come from Mexico . The place consists of only prostitutes and football players!!!!!"

The manager replied coldly, "My wife is also from Mexico." To this the boy asked excitedly, "Oh yeah? Which team does she play for?"

Moral: Presence of mind helps. Never panic!!!!!!!!

Interview Etiquette Manners-Meals and Interviews

Interviews are often stressful - even for job seekers who have interviewed many times. Interviewing can be even more stressful when you are expected to eat and talk at the same time. One of the reasons employers take job candidates out to lunch or dinner is to evaluate their social skills and to see if they can handle themselves gracefully under pressure. 

Dining with a prospective employee allows employers to review your communication and interpersonal skills, as well as your table manners, in a more relaxed (for them) environment. Table manners do matter. Good manners may give you the edge over another candidate, so, take some time to brush up your dining etiquette skills. 

Interview Dining Tips:
  • Are you really nervous? Check out the restaurant ahead of time. That way you'll know exactly what's on the menu, what you might want to order and where the rest rooms are located.
  • Be polite. Remember to say "please" and "thank you" to your server as well as to your host.
  • Is the table full of utensils? My British grandmother taught me an easy way to remember what to use when. Start at the outside and work your way in. Your salad fork will be on the far left, your entree fork will be next to it. Your dessert spoon and fork will be above your plate.
  • Liquids are on the right, solids on the left. For example, your water glass will be on the right and your bread plate will be on the left.
  • Put your napkin on your lap once everyone is seated.
  • Remember what your mother spent years telling you - keep your elbows off the table, sit up straight, and don't talk with your mouth full!
During the Meal:
  • Don't order messy food - pasta with lots of sauce, chicken with bones, ribs, big sandwiches, and whole lobsters are all dangerous.
  • Don't order the most expensive entree on the menu.
  • Do order food that is easy to cut into bite-size pieces.
  • The polite way to eat soup is to spoon it away from you. There's less chance of spilling in your lap that way too!
  • Break your dinner roll into small pieces and eat it a piece at a time.
  • If you need to leave the table, put your napkin on the seat or the arm of your chair.
  • When you've finished eating, move your knife and fork to the "four o'clock" position so the server knows you're done.
  • Remember to try and relax, listen, and participate in the conversation.
To Drink or Not to Drink:
  • It's wise not to drink alcohol during an interview. Interviewing is tough enough without adding alcohol to the mix.
After the Meal:
  • Put your napkin on the table next to your plate. 
  • Let the prospective employer pick up the tab. The person who invited you will expect to pay both the bill and the tip.
  • Remember to say "thank you." Consider also following-up with a thank you note which reiterates your interest in the job.

What lies on the other side of death

A sick man turned to his doctor as he was preparing to leave the examination room and said, "Doctor, I am afraid to die.Tell me what lies on the other side". Very quietly, the doctor said, "I don't know". Sick man said, "You don't know? You, a Christian man, Do not know what is on the other side?" 

The doctor was holding the handle of the door.On the other side came a sound of scratching and whining. And as he opened the door, a dog sprang into the room, leaped on him with an eager show of gladness. Turning to the patient, the doctor said, "Did you notice my dog? He's never been in this room before. He didn't know what was inside. He knew nothing except that his master was here, and when the door opened, he sprang in without fear I know little of what is on the other side of death, But I do know one thing................ I know my Master is there and that is enough."


Play to achieve your Goal

There once lived a great mathematician in a village outside Ujjain . He was often called by the local king to advice on matters related to the economy. His reputation had spread as far as Taxila in the North and Kanchi in the South. So it hurt him very much when the village headman told him, "You may be a great mathematician who advises the king on economic matters but your son does not know the value of gold or silver."

The mathematician called his son and asked, "What is more valuable - gold or silver?" "Gold," said the son. "That is correct. Why is it then that the village headman makes fun of you, claims you do not know the value of gold or silver? He teases me every day. He mocks me before other village elders as a father who neglects his son. This hurts me. I feel everyone in the village is laughing behind my back because you do not know what is more valuable, gold or silver. Explain this to me, son."

So the son of the mathematician told his father the reason why the village headman carried this impression. "Every day on my way to school, the village headman calls me to his house. There, in front of all village elders, he holds out a silver coin in one hand and a gold coin in other. He asks me to pick up the more valuable coin. I pick the silver coin. He laughs, the elders jeer, everyone makes fun of me. And then I go to school. This happens every day. That is why they tell you I do not know the value of gold or silver."

The father was confused. His son knew the value of gold and silver, and yet when asked to choose between a gold coin and silver coin always picked the silver coin. "Why don't you pick up the gold coin?" he asked. In response, the son took the father to his room and showed him a box. In the box were at least a hundred silver coins. Turning to his father, the mathematician' s son said, "The day I pick up the gold coin the game will stop. They will stop having fun and I will stop making money."

The bottom line is :

Sometimes in life, we have to play the fool because our seniors and our peers, and sometimes even our juniors like it. That does not mean we lose in the game of life. It just means allowing others to win in one arena of the game, while we win in the other arena of the game. We have to choose which arena matters to us and which arenas do not.

We live in a Nation...

We live in a Nation...

Where Pizza reaches home faster than Ambulance, police and firetruck.

Where you get car loan @ 5% and education loan @ 12%

Where rice is Rs 40/- per kg but sim card is free

Where a millionaire can buy a cricket team but don't donate any money to charity

Where the foot wears and inner wears, we wear, are sold in AC showrooms, but vegetables and fruits, that we eat, are sold at footpath

Where everybody wants to be famous but nobody wants to follow the path to be famous

Where we make lemon juices with artificial flavors and dish wash liquids with real lemon

Where people standing at tea stall reading an article about child labour from a newspaper and say, "yaar bachhon se kaam karvane wale ko to phansi par chadha dena chahiye" and then they shout "Oye chhotu 2 chaii laa..."

Do think about it!
