Gift to the Enemy


A few years ago, the terrorist organization Hamas, sent a gift to the President of Israel in an elaborate box with a note.

After having the box checked for safety reasons, the President of Israel, Shimon Peres, opened the box and saw that the content was faeces (shit).

He opened the note which said "For you and the proud people of Israel."

Being a wise and experienced person, he decided to reciprocate, sending Hamas a very pretty package and a note.

The leaders of Hamas were very surprised to receive the parcel and opened it very carefully suspecting that it might contain a bomb.
But to their surprise they saw that it contained a tiny computer "chip.

The chip was rechargeable with solar energy, had a 1800 Terabyte memory and could output a 3D hologram display capable of functioning in any type of cellular phone, tablet or laptop.

It was one of the world's most advanced technologies, Invented and produced in Israel.

The accompanying note to the Hamas leaders stated very courteously...
" A leader can give only what his people can produce "

How to deal with insults is one of the best lessons you can learn to lead a better life.

Give your best to your worst enemy and stay blessed forever.

Survival Tactic : Celestial Weapon

Ashwatthama got furious when his father Drona was killed in the war, as a result of deceit from Pandava camp. As a counter attack he launched "Narayana Astra", the illustrious weapon of Vishnu.

This wreaked great havoc on opponents by making countless weapon rain drop from heavens, until Krishna (god himself) disclosed the secret of surviving it: laying down weapons, do not retaliate & remain calm. As this celestial weapon targeted only armed warriors & ignored unarmed ones.

Krishna added that this super natural weapon was so powerful that if opponent bring in the idea of war to their minds, weapon was receptive to that & will destroy them.

Pandavs quickly followed the survival tactics, with their troops abandoning chariots & getting themselves unarmed.

Impact of Celestial astra gradually passed by with time!
What's next, YES Pandavs rose again & fought the battle & WON !!

Wonderful message here is that:
"Battles are not just about attack & counter attack. Sometimes battles are won just by staying put, being patient & remaining calm."

1. Where a crooner repeatedly addresses his paramour expressing in his serenade that blossoms burgeon in gardens when he and she rendezvous in arid wilderness

2. An advertiser beckons those suffering from vertiginous dizziness or depressive melancholy to approach him without trepidation

4. Those who apperceive the umbra of amorousness on their capitulum experience paradise beneath their podal extremities, promenading in the shade

5. With an invocation to a behemoth of the dot com era, the protagonist expresses his scant heedfulness for whether he is repeatedly described as lacking civilization, given that he is helplessly entrapped in the whirlwinds of romance

6. Where the protagonist annunciates his cognomen proclaiming his terrestrial solitude and the existence of a vacuum in his cardiac organ as well as his domicile

Guess the 6 Hindi songs.

Hope is Decision - Believe

During a brutal study at Harvard in the 1950s, Dr. Curt Richter placed rats in a pool of water to test how long they could tread water.

On average they'd give up and sink after 15 minutes. 
But right before they gave up due to exhaustion, the researchers would pluck them out, dry them off, let them rest for a few minutes - and put them back in for a second round.
In this second try - how long do you think they lasted?
Remember - they had just swam until failure only a few short minutes ago...
How long do you think?
Another 15 minutes?
10 minutes?
5 minutes?
60 hours!
That's not an error.

That's right! 60 hours of swimming.
The conclusion drawn was that since the rats BELIEVED that they would eventually be rescued, they could push their bodies way past what they previously thought impossible.

I will leave you with this thought:
If hope can cause exhausted rats to swim for that long, what could a belief in yourself and your abilities, do for you?

So let's inject HOPE in people that this will pass and we can win over situation. 
If we decide not be defeated then we can't get defeated!!! 
So let's inject HOPE in everyone's life!!!

Quarantine Workout

माथे का पसीना पौछते हुए पति ने पत्नी से कहा: 
*"प्रिये,  एक बात कहनी है ।"*
पत्नी (मोबाइल फोन से बामुश्किल अपनी नजरें उठाते हुए) -
*" हां बोलो ।"*
*तुम "झाङू पौंछा बर्तन करने " का मत बोला करो ।*
 बहुत देसी लगता है। 
*इसकी बजाय कहो कि "क्वारेंटाइन वर्क आउट " कर लो।*
 *इससे स्टैंडर्ड और स्वाभिमान बना रहेगा।* 
*आखिर ऑफिस में मैं बॉस हूँ। कुछ तो इज्जत करो। "*

Giving & Faith for Better Return Success

*The Abundance Principle*

Once a man got lost in a desert. The water in his flask had run out two days ago, and he was on his last legs. He knew that if he didn't get some water soon, he would surely die. The man saw a small hut ahead of him. He thought it would be a mirage or maybe a hallucination, but having no other option, he moved toward it. As he got closer, he realized it was quite real. So he dragged his tired body to the door with the last of his strength.

The hut was not occupied and seemed like it had been abandoned for quite some time. The man entered into it, hoping against hope that he might find water inside.

His heart skipped a beat when he saw what was in the hut - a water hand pump...... It had a pipe going down through the floor, perhaps tapping a source of water deep under-ground.

He began working the hand pump, but no water came out. He kept at it and still nothing happened. Finally he gave up from exhaustion and frustration. He threw up his hands in despair. It looked as if he was going to die after all.

Then the man noticed a bottle in one corner of the hut. It was filled with water and corked up to prevent evaporation.

He uncorked the bottle and was about to gulp down the sweet life-giving water, when he noticed a piece of paper attached to it. Handwriting on the paper read : "Use this water to start the pump. Don't forget to fill the bottle when you're done."

He had a dilemma. He could follow the instruction and pour the water into the pump, or he could ignore it and just drink the water.

What to do? If he let the water go into the pump, what assurance did he have that it would work? What if the pump malfunctioned? What if the pipe had a leak? What if the underground reservoir had long dried up?

But then... maybe the instruction was correct. Should he risk it? If it turned out to be false, he would be throwing away the last water he would ever see.

Hands trembling, he poured the water into the pump. Then he closed his eyes, said a prayer, and started working the pump.

He heard a gurgling sound, and then water came gushing out, more than he could possibly use. He luxuriated in the cool and refreshing stream. He was going to live!

After drinking his fill and feeling much better, he looked around the hut. He found a pencil and a map of the region. The map showed that he was still far away from civilization, but at least now he knew where he was and which direction to go.

He filled his flask for the journey ahead. He also filled the bottle and put the cork back in. Before leaving the hut, he added his own writing below the instruction: "Believe me, it works!"

This story is all about life. It teaches us that We must GIVE  before We can RECEIVE Abundantly.

More importantly, it also teaches that FAITH plays an important role in GIVING.

The man did not know if his action would be rewarded, but he proceeded regardless.

Without knowing what to expect, he made a Leap of Faith.

Water in this story represents the Good things in Life

Give life some "Water" to Work with, and it will RETURN _far more than you put in_.........!!!

Have an abundant year ahead.

Medical humour 😉

Five doctors went on a duck hunt: a GP , a Physician, a radiologist,  a Surgeon & a Pathologist . 

After a while  a bird came winging overhead , the GP raised his shotgun but didn't shoot and said "I think its a duck,but needs a second let the physician shoot.."

The Physician also raised his gun and said.."Its a duck..but the other possibilities should be considered such as a hypertrophied sparrow or an atrophied ostrich..."

Radiologist quickly scanned the situation and mumbled.. ".. It can be a duck, a sparrow or an ostrich or even a hen ..however,  Please correlate clinically.."

The surgeon was the only one who shot . Boom !!!!  He blew it away . Then he turned to the pathologist & said  ,  " Go  and confirm whether thats  a  duck ."

The pathologist slowly  approached the bird cooked it and ate it then he said...
"Specimen inadequate..."
