" Wipro chairman Mr. Ajim Premji's comment on reservation: I think we should have job reservations in all the fields.I completely support the PM & all the politicians for promoting this.Let's start the reservation with our cricket team.We should have 10 % reservation for muslims,30 % for OBC, SC/ST like that.Cricket rules should be modified accordingly.The boundary circle should be reduced for an SC/ST player.The 4 hit by an OBC player should be considered as a 6 and a 6 hit by a OBC player should be counted as 8 runs.An OBC player scoring 60 runs should be declared as a century.We should influence ICC and make rules so that the pace bowlers like Shoaib Akhtar should not bowl fast balls to our OBC player.Bowlers should bowl maximum speed of 80 kmph to an OBC player. "
I don't know whether Ajim Premji really said this, but this is the correct answer for the recent reservation policy change anouncement. Atleast our leaders should realise the mistake they are doing by seeing such messages.
Kudos to the person who wrote this.
I don't have any grudge over the moderators of this group. I am blogging this as they are not in a position to listen.

We spend more but enjoy less,
We have bigger houses but smaller families,
We have more compromises but less time,
We have more knowledge, but less judgement,
We have more medicines but less health.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
We talk much, we love only a little, and we hate too much.
We reached the moon and came back, but we find it troublesome to cross our own street and meet our neighbors.
We have conquered the outer space, but not our inner space.
We have higher income, but less morals...
These are times with more liberty but less joy...
We have much more food, but less nutrition.
These are days in which two salaries go home, but divorces increase.
These are times of finer houses but more broken homes.
That's why I propose that as from today,
You do not keep waiting for a special occasion, because every day that you live is a special occasion.
Search for knowledge, read more, sit on your front porch and admire the view without paying attention to the needs.
Pass more time with your family, eat your favorite food, visit the place you love.
Life is a chain of momentsof enjoyment; it isn't only survival.
Use your crystal goblets. Do not save your best perfume, and use it every time you feel you want it.
Take out from your vocabulary phrases like "one of these days" and "someday."
Let's write that letter we thought of writing "one of these days."
Let's tell our families and friends how much we love them.
That's why, do not delay anything adding laughter and joy to your life.
Every day, every hour, and minute are special...
and you don't know if it will be your last...

Sure enough, the horseman quickly jumped onto his horse and rode as fast as possible to cover as much land area as he could. He kept on riding and riding, whipping the horse to go as fast as possible. When he was hungry or tired, he did not stop because he wanted to cover as much area as possible.
Came to a point when he had covered a substantial area and he was exhausted and was dying. Then he asked himself, "Why did I push myself so hard to cover so much land area? Now I am dying and I only need a very small area to bury myself."
The above story is very similar to the journey of our Life. We push very hard everyday to make more money, to gain power and recognition. We neglect our health, time with our family and to appreciate the surrounding beauty and the hobbies we love.
What not ? We often neglect every aspect of life...
I have seen so many people in such a way, of course, including myself...
Everything in life has become so materialistic...
We are running along with time, not spending much time for personal pleasures...
One day when we look back , we will realize that we don't really need that much, but then we cannot turn back time for what we have missed. I am so sure that all those who are thinking money is the most important will realize they are wrong.
They will surely know what they have lost in life...
But it will be too late by that time...
They will not get back what they lost...
That is lost forever...
Life is not all about making money, acquiring power or recognition . Life is definitely not about work! Work is not everything in life. Work is only necessary to keep us living so as to enjoy the beauty and pleasures of life. There is no meaning in neglecting your pleasures for work or money. Money is only to get more pleasures in life and to lead your life peacefully. If you neglect pleasures of life, why do you need more money? For what purpose?
Just think about it...
Life is a balance of Work and Play, Family and Personal time. You have to decide how you want to balance your Life. You will know your priorities of life better than anyone else. So, define your priorities, realize what you are able to compromise but always let some of your decisions be based on your instincts.
Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of Life, the whole aim of human existence. So, take it easy, do what you want to do and appreciate nature. Life is fragile, Life is short. Do not take Life for granted. Live a balanced lifestyle and enjoy Life !

are right and you need to shut up. Never use "fine" to describe how a woman
looks - this will cause you to have one of those arguments.
FIVE MINUTES - This is half an hour. It is equivalent to the five minutes
that your football game is going to last before you take out the trash, so
it's an even trade.
NOTHING - This means "something," and you should be on your toes. "Nothing"
is usually used to describe the feeling a woman has of wanting to turn you
inside out, upside down, and backwards. "Nothing" usually signifies an
argument that will last "Five Minutes" and end with "Fine".
GO AHEAD (With Raised Eyebrows!) - This is a dare. One that will result in
a woman getting upset over "Nothing" and will end with the word "Fine".
GO AHEAD (Normal Eyebrows) - This means "I give up" or "Do what you want
because I don't care". You will get a "Raised Eyebrow Go Ahead" in just a
few minutes, followed by "Nothing" and "Fine" and she will talk to you in
about "Five Minutes" when she cools off.
LOUD SIGH - This is not actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement
often misunderstood by men. A "Loud Sigh" means she thinks you are an idiot
at that moment, and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and
arguing with you over "Nothing".
SOFT SIGH - Again, not a word, but a non-verbal statement. "Soft Sighs"
mean that she is content. Your best bet is to not move or breathe, and she
will stay content.
THAT'S OKAY - This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can
make to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard
before paying you back for whatever it is that you have done. "That's Okay"
is often used with the word "Fine" and in conjunction with a "Raised
GO AHEAD! - At some point in the near future, you are going to be in some
mighty big trouble.
PLEASE DO - This is not a statement, it is an offer. A woman is giving you
the chance to come up with whatever excuse or reason you have for doing
whatever it is that you have done. You have a fair chance with the truth,
so be careful and you shouldn't get a "That's Okay".
THANKS - A woman is thanking you. Do not faint. Just say "You're welcome. "
THANKS A LOT - This is much different from "Thanks". A woman will say
"Thanks A Lot" when she is really ticked off at you. It signifies that you
have offended her in some callous way, and will be followed by the "Loud
Sigh". Be careful not to ask what is wrong after the "Loud Sigh" as she
will only tell you "Nothing

An 80 year old man was sitting on the sofa in his house along with his
45-year old highly educated son.
Suddenly a crow perched on their window.
The Father asked his Son, "What is this?"
The Son replied "It is a crow".
After a few minutes, the Father asked his Son the 2nd time, "What is this?"
The Son said "Father, I have just now told you "It's a crow".
After a little while, the old Father again asked his Son the 3rd time,
"What is this?"
At this time some __expression of irritation was felt in the Son's
tone when he said to his Father with a rebuff.
"It's a crow, a crow".
A little after, the Father again asked his Son t he 4th time, "What is this?"
This time the Son shouted at his Father, "Why do you keep asking me
the same question again and again,
although I have told you so many times 'IT IS A CROW'. Are you not
able to understand this?"
A little later the Father went to his room and came back with an old
tattered diary, which he had maintained
since his Son was born. On opening a page, he asked his Son to read
that page. When the son read it, the
following words were written in the diary: -
"Today my little son aged three was sitting with me on the sofa, when
a crow was sitting on the window.
My Son asked me 23 times what it was, and I replied to him all 23
times that it was a Crow.
I hugged him lovingly each time h e asked me the same question again
and again for 23 times.
I did not at all feel irritated. I rather felt affection for my innocent child".
While the little child asked him 23 times "What is this", the Father
had felt no irritation
in replying to the same question all 23 times and when today the
Father asked his Son the same question just 4 times, the Son felt
irritated and annoyed.
If your parents attain old age, do not repulse them or look at them as
a burden, but speak to them a gracious word, be cool, obedient, humble
and kind to them. Be considerate to your parents.
