Never listen with a predetermined notion...

A teacher teaching Maths to seven-year-old Arnav asked him, "If I give you one apple and one apple and one apple, how many apples will you have?"Within a few seconds Arnav replied confidently, "Four!"

The dismayed teacher was expecting an effortless correct answer (three). She was disappointed. "Maybe the child did not listen properly," she thought. She repeated, "Arnav, listen carefully. If I give you one apple and one apple and one apple, how many apples will you have?"


Arnav had seen the disappointment on his teacher's face. He calculated again on his fingers. But within him he was also searching for the answer that will make the teacher happy. His search for the answer was not for the correct one, but the one that will make his teacher happy. This time hesitatingly he replied, "Four…"

The disappointment stayed on the teacher's face. She remembered that Arnav liked strawberries. She thought maybe he doesn't like apples and that is making him loose focus. This time with an exaggerated excitement and twinkling in her eyes she asked, "If I give you one strawberry and one strawberry and one strawberry, then how many you will have?"

Seeing the teacher happy, young Arnav calculated on his fingers again. There was no pressure on him, but a little on the teacher. She wanted her new approach to succeed. With a hesitating smile young Arnav enquired, "Three?"


The teacher now had a victorious smile. Her approach had succeeded. She wanted to congratulate herself. But one last thing remained. Once again she asked him, "Now if I give you one apple and one apple and one more apple how many will you have?"


Promptly Arnav answered, "Four!"


The teacher was aghast. "How Arnav, how?" she demanded in a little stern and irritated voice.


In a voice that was low and hesitating young Arnav replied, "Because I already have one apple in my bag."



"When someone gives you an answer that is different from what you expect don't think they are wrong. There maybe an angle that you have not understood at all. You will have to listen and understand, but never listen with a predetermined notion."

कारण वाटेत नळ स्टॉप आहे.

Please appreciate "HER"


Tomorrow you may propose a working woman,


but you should marry with these facts firmly grounded in your mind........




Here is a girl, who is as much educated as you are;
who is earning almost as much as you do;

One, who has dreams and aspirations just as you have because she isas
human as you are;

One, who has never entered the kitchen in her life just like you or your
Sister haven't, as she was busy in studies and competing in a system that
gives no special concession to girls for their culinary achievements.
One, who has lived and loved her parents & brothers & sisters, almost as
much as you do for 20-25 years of her life;

One, who has bravely agreed to leave behind all that, her home, people who
love her, to adopt your home, your family, your ways and even your family
name,

One, who is somehow expected to be a master-chef from day #1, while you
sleep oblivious to her predicament in her new circumstances, environment
and that kitchen

One, who is expected to make tea, first thing in the morning and cook
food at the end of the day, even if she is as tired as you are, maybe more,
and yet never ever expected to complain; to be a servant, a cook, a mother,
a wife, even if she doesn't want to; and is learning just like you are as
to what you want from her; and is clumsy and sloppy at times and knows that
you won't like it if she is too demanding, or if she learns faster than
you;

One, who has her own set of friends, and that includes boys and even men at
her workplace too, those, who she knows from school days and yet is willing
to put all that on the back-burners to avoid your irrational jealousy,
unnecessary competition and your inherent insecurities;
Yes, she can drink and dance just as well as you can, but won't, simply
because you won't like it, even though you say otherwise

One, who can be late from work once in a while when deadlines, just like
yours, are to be met;

One, who is doing her level best and wants to make this most important
relationship in her entire life a grand success, if you just help her some
and trust her;

One, who just wants one thing from you, as you are the only one she knows
in your entire house - Your unstinted support, Your sensitivities and most importantly - Your understanding, or love, if you may call it.

But not many guys understand this......

Please appreciate "HER"

21st century bride !!

A newly wed girl was being welcomed at the husband's home in a traditional manner.

She was asked to give a little speech. She addressed as follows:

"My dear family members, I thank you for welcoming me in my new home and family",

she said "Firstly, with my presence I would not want to create any inconveniences by my being here. I mean that I don't want you all to change your way of life, your routine."

"What do you mean my child?" asked the patriarch of the family.

What I mean dad is:

Those who used to wash dishes must carry on washing them.
Those who used to do the laundry must carry on doing it.
Those who cooked shouldn't stop on my account.
Those who used to clean should clean.

As for me, I am here just to control your son!

This is called bride from 21st

Management Lesson........................ The ULTIMATE

PJ

एक साप, कोंबडी, मांजर आणि शंभर पायांची गोम हे मित्र एकदा पत्ते खेळत बसले होते.
चौघेही पट्टीचे पत्तेबाज आणि तेवढेच फुकाडे- म्हणजे सिगारेटी फुंकणारे. तीन-चार तासांत होत्या नव्हत्या त्या सगळ्या सिगारेटी संपल्या.

तलफ आल्यावर साप कोंबडीला म्हणाला, ''जा ना पटकन तीन-चार पाकिटं घेऊन ये ना! मी गेलो असतो, पण मला तर पायच नाहीत.''
कोंबडी म्हणाली, ''मला दोनच पाय. मांजरबाई, तू जातेस काय?'' मांजर म्हणाली, ''मला तर चारच पाय आहेत. किती वेगाने जाणार मीही.

त्यापेक्षा या शंभर पायांच्या गोमाबाईंना जाऊ देत.'' गोम सिगारेट आणायला म्हणून गेली त्याला तास-दीड तास होता आला.
सगळ्यांना जाम तलफ आली होती. साप म्हणाला, ''पाच मिनिटांवर टपरी आहे, हिला इतका वेळ का लागला.''
कोंबडी गोमेला बघायला म्हणून बाहेर पडली आणि थक्कच झाली. बाहेरच्या खोलीत गोम बसली होती.
''
तू अजून इथेच बसलीयेस?'' कोंबडीने रागाने विचारलं. '' बसलेली नाहीये नुसती. दिसत नाही का मी चपला घालतेय पायात ते!

Human Resource :) too good

One day while walking down the street a highly successful
Human Resources Manager was tragically hit by a bus and she died. Her soul
arrived up in heaven where she was met at the Pearly Gates by St. Peter
himself.
"Welcome to Heaven," said St. Peter. "Before you get settled in though, it
seems we have a problem. You see, strangely enough, we've never once had a
Human Resources Manager make it this far and we're not really sure what to
do with you."
"No problem, just let me in," said the woman.
"Well, I'd like to, but I have higher orders. What we're going to do is let
you have a day in Hell and a day in Heaven and then you can choose whichever
one you want to spend an eternity in."
"Actually, I think I've made up my mind, I prefer to stay in Heaven", said
the woman
"Sorry, we have rules..."
And with that St. Peter put the executive in an elevator and it went
down-down-down to hell.
The doors opened and she found herself stepping out onto the putting green
of a beautiful golf course. In the distance was a country club and standing
in front of her were all her friends - fellow executives that she had worked
with and they were well dressed in evening gowns and cheering for her. They
ran up and kissed her on both cheeks and they talked about old times. They
played an excellent round of golf and at night went to the country club
where she enjoyed an excellent steak and lobster dinner.
She met the Devil who was actually a really nice guy (kind
of cute) and she had a great time telling jokes and dancing. She was having
such a good time that before she knew it, it was time to leave. Everybody
shook her hand and waved goodbye as she got on the elevator.
The elevator went up-up-up and opened back up at the Pearly Gates and found
St. Peter waiting for her.
"Now it's time to spend a day in heaven," he said. So she spent the next 24
hours lounging around on clouds and playing the harp and singing. She had
great time and before she knew it her 24 hours were up and St. Peter came
and got her.
"So, you've spent a day in hell and you've spent a day in heaven. Now you
must choose your eternity,"
The woman paused for a second and then replied, "Well, I never thought I'd
say this, I mean, Heaven has been really great and all, but I think I had a
better time in Hell."
So St. Peter escorted her to the elevator and again she went down-down-down
back to Hell.
When the doors of the elevator opened she found herself standing in a
desolate wasteland covered in garbage and filth. She saw her friends were
dressed in rags and were picking up the garbage and putting it in sacks.
The Devil came up to her and put his arm around her.
"I don't understand," stammered the woman, "yesterday I was here and there
was a golf course and a country club and we ate lobster and we danced and
had a great time. Now all there is a wasteland of garbage and all my friends
look miserable."
The Devil looked at her smiled and told... **

why hike in petrol price?

We got news cliping from Mumbai. Please go through the mail for price of
Petrol break-up.- to Know the reality of actual price of Petrol

Petrol Fever - A Real Eye Opener

Following is the article from well known Newspaper.

Find the detail break-up of the Final price of petrol available in
pumps.

This is a break up considering crude oil at 130 $ per barrel. Following
details are for per liter petrol in Rs.

* Basic Price = Rs 21.93
* Excise duty = Rs 14.35
* Education Tax = Rs 0.43
* Dealer commission = Rs 1.05
* VAT = Rs 5.5
* Crude Oil Custom duty = Rs 1.1
* Petrol Custom = Rs 1.54
* Transportation Charge = Rs 6.00
* Total price = Rs 51.90

So for a Rs 22 liter petrol at pumps we people pay Rs 28 tax extra.

Govt. is thinking to impose more price hike to curtain with the current
crude oil bubble in International oil crisis.


If Central Govt. wish, it can still reduce the price of petrol in the
current crisis situation, but it doesn't intend to do so, instead trying
to fool the people and Nation. This is the basis LEFT parties are
opposing, just generating more profits for the oil marketing companies.


Don't you think you should pass this message to create more awareness
among the people.
