Once a general manager wanted to test his people who had come from all over India, about their values of life.

He announced that in their seminar folder, there is PVC pouch and in it there is a seed. When they return, they must put it in a good soil in a pot and look after it very well.

He would hold a competition in the next year’s seminar and that the best plants would be awarded suitably.

Everyone did what was told to him. A year passed quickly. And next year in a big hall, there were hundreds of pots and a great variety of plants-a great scene.

Except one pot in which the soil was there and no plant! The owner was standing quietly and seemingly ashamed of himself!

The general manager called him on the stage. He asked him what happened and he told him the truth. He planted the seed which he was given – and did that was to be done- but nothing happened!

The general manager declared him the winner!

Everyone was shocked. It was announced, “Gentlemen! The seeds I gave you were boiled seeds. You planted them and nothing happened! You acted smartly and used some other seeds.

This man was honest to his work and, therefore he did not cheat me or himself!”



For Mobile Phone Users…..

Isn’t it true that we all carry our mobile phones with hundreds of names/numbers stored in its memory but yet nobody, other than ourselves, know which of these numbers belong to our near and dear ones?

Let us for a moment create a scenario wherein (God forbid) we are involved in an accident or had a heart attack and the people attending
us get hold of our mobile phone but don’t’ know which number to call to inform our family members. Yes, there are hundreds of numbers stored but  which one is the contact person in case of an emergency?

For this reason, we must have one or more telephone numbers stored under the name ICE (in case of emergency) in our mobile phones.

Recently, the concept of “ICE” is catching up quickly. It is simply, an important method of contact during emergency situations. As cell phones are carried by majority of the population, all you need to do is store the number of a contact person or person who should be contacted at during emergency as “ICE” (meaning In Case of Emergency).

The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that when they went to the scenes of accidents, there were always mobile phones with patients, but they didn’t know which number to call. He therefore thought that it would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognized name for this purpose.

Following a disaster in London , the East Anglican Ambulance Service has launched a national “In case of Emergency (ICE)” campaign.

In an emergency situation, Emergency Service personnel and hospital staff would then be able to quickly contact your next of kin, by simply dialing the number stored as “ICE”.

Please forward this. It won’t take too many “forwards” before every body will know about this. It really could save your life, or put a loved one’s mind at rest.

For more than one contact name simply enter ICE1, ICE2 and ICE3 etc.

A great idea that will make a difference!

A butcher watching over his shop is really surprised
when he sees a dog
coming inside the shop. He shoos him away. But later,
the dog is back
again. So, he goes over to the dog and notices it has
a note in its mouth.
He takes the note and it reads “Can I have 12 sausages
and a leg of lamb,
please”. The dog has money in its mouth, as well. The
butcher looks inside
and, there is a ten dollar note there. So he takes the
money and puts the
sausages and lamb in a bag, placing it in the dog’s
The butcher is so impressed, and since it’s about
closing time, he decides
to shut the shop and follow the dog. So off he goes.
The dog is walking
down the street, when it comes to a level crossing;
the dog puts down the
bag, jumps up and presses the button. Then it waits
patiently, bag in
mouth, for the lights to turn. They do, and it walks
across the road, with
the butcher following him all the way.
The dog then comes to a bus stop, and starts looking
at the timetable. The
butcher is in awe as the dog stops a bus by pulling
its left leg up and
gets in it. The butcher follows the dog into the bus.
Then the dog shows a
ticket which is tied to its belt to the bus conductor.
The butcher is
nearly fainting at this sight, so are the other
passengers in the bus. The
dog then sits near the driver’s seat looking outside
waiting for the bus
stop to come. As soon as the stop is in sight, the dog
stands and wags its
tail to inform the conductor. Then, without waiting
for the bus to stop
completely, it jumps out of the bus and runs to a
house very close to the
stop. It opens the big Iron Gate and rushes inside
towards the door.
As it approaches the wooden door, the dog suddenly
changes its mind and
heads towards the garden. It goes to the window, and
beats its head against
it several times, walks back, jumps off, and waits at
the door.
The butcher watches as a big guy opens the door, and
starts abusing the
dog, kicking him and punching him, and swearing at
The butcher surprised with this, runs up, and stops
the guy. “What in
heaven’s name are you doing? The dog is a genius. He
could be on TV, for
the life of me!” to which the Guy responds: “You call
this clever? This is
the second time this week that this stupid dog’s
forgotten his key.”

*Moral of the story: You may continue to exceed onlooker’s expectations but shall always fall short of the boss’ expectations. It’s dog’s life after all………………

Dog Bites !… Rabies…. Be Carefull …..

Bangalore: When Varadaraju, 23, reacted violently when he was offered a drink of water at his Maruthinagar, his family did not realise that he was infected with the rabies virus. Today, lodged in the isolation ward at the Epidemics Diseases Hospital (Isolation Hospital) on Old Madras Road, he has been put on sedatives and is counting his days.
Nearly 20 days ago, Varadaraju was bitten by a stray dog near his house. He didn’t know that the small cut on his lower lip could prove fatal. The virus silently spread and affected his central nervous system (CNS).
He showed symptoms such as a sore throat, fever, headache, loss of appetite in the early stages. On Tuesday, his family members discovered that he was excited, and sensitive to bright light and touch. He complained of thirst, but turned aggressive when offered with water.
Anxious relatives rushed him to the hospital at 11 am on Wednesday. When doctors learnt that the very sight of water caused painful spasms, they knew this was a classical sign of rabies — hydrophobia.
His brother told The Times of India, “I read about the death of a six-year-old boy in this hospital in the papers this morning. But I never thought my brother will have to meet the same fate.’’
Varadaraju is not aware of his condition yet. In his dimly lit room, he said: “I have difficulty in breathing and swallowing. I don’t want water. I don’t know what happened. Maybe this is because of the dog bite. They give me medicines that make me sleep.’’
Health director Dr M B Rudrappa says the number of dog bite deaths have increased. “The problem is that many are either not aware that rabies is fatal. They ignore it either because they think vaccination against rabies can be painful or it’s expensive.’’
Hospital medical records show that at least six people have succumbed to the virus in the past four months. In 2006, there were 39 deaths; in 2005, there were 27 deaths; and, in 2004, there were 21 deaths.
“We have people walking in with dog bites almost every day. We counsel them and even force them to take the vaccine. It is available free of cost for those living below the poverty line,’’ says a duty doctor. Unlike the earlier vaccine — Nerve Tissue Vaccine — the recent vaccines are more patient-friendly.
It can be taken in five doses (first, third, seventh, fourteenth and twenty-eighth day) and even intra-dermally, says Dr B J Mahendra, professor and head of community medicine at Mandya Institute of Medical Sciences. “Sadly, both children and adults skip vaccination. There were several child rabies deaths as well. Some were even pregnant women’’ he said.
