Hi

Though there is no fun in this, this is just to show that dirty incidents still prevail in India irrespective of how developed it is. What can you tell when some city bred, educated people invovle in incidents such as this. Is there somethign wrong with Indians only. I don't think these kind of incidents happen anywhere other than India and some Asian countries.

Hi all,

If you know some one staying in B'glore let them know this. If you are in
b'lore, do go through this story COZ, its a real one. Read this true
story... and let everybody you know in and around Bangalore especially
Bannerghatta Road .

My friend lives in Malleshwaram... One day he went to Bannerghatta Road to
visit his uncle for some days as his parents had to attend a wedding in
Coimbatore. One evening he and some other of my college friends went to
Yellahanka for a movie.

He had so much fun that he forgot that it's very late. He caught thelast
local bus to Bannerghatta Road ..... he reached Bannerghatta Road around
midnight......

He had to walk about a mile from the bus stop to home....

As he was walking alone, he could sense that the night felt very creepy as
it was so dark. While walking, he was astonished to see an old creepy
looking guy selling some books. It was a very unusual thingto see a thing
like that.....

It got the shivers ! on him when he noticed that his old guy is unusually
pale and staring at him...

The old guy said "Son why don't you get a book...it would keep you company".

Then he did something which he would regret for the rest of his
life.........My friend started to act brave & thought why not & had a look
at his collections... My friend's hair started to rise up as he noticed
that
all the books were related to supernatural activities...but he found one
that was very interesting.

So he asked the old man "how much is it, uncle?".... The old guy replied,
"Well son...this is an interesting book...it's only for Rs 250. My friend
was shocked and said "but...but... it's expensive". This time the old man
stared which freaked my friend. My friend quickly checked all his pockets
& found Rs.200 & said "This is all I have." The old guy replied "It's OK
son
....you can have the book for that price"

As ! my friend was just about to run for home...the old man called back &
said "Son ... whatever happen, you don't ever flip the book to it's last
page... remember these words or you would regret...!!!!!"

My friend nodded and never looked back ... Reaching home...he quickly
asked his Uncle whether there was any new old book seller nearby? The
Uncle replied "not that I know of but ...we've heard that there's 1 old
man comes once in a while during full moon nights but heard that there is
something creepy about it...why son?"

My friend freaked out... he told his uncle "nothing uncle...just asking".
He started reading the book with the old man's words on his mind.. At
night, 12 0'clock, as he went to bed, a gush of wind blew which chilled
him up to his bones. At that glimpse, he noticed the wind had blown the
pages to its last page. He remembered what the old man has said! But we
humans tend to have the tendency to know. Out of curiosity, he flipped to
the last page & fainted... What he saw at the lastpage is stated below:

Read article about UP kid on excite site ... Headind of the article is'Village Boy's NASA Claim Crashes to Earth' ... Check the link also ... http://reuters.excite.com//article/2005 ... SA-DC.html

Some of the quotes by this famous boy ...
Singh says he flew to London on Indian Airlines and took a taxi to Oxford University and back every day for the exam from January 4-8, a round trip of about 230 km (140 miles).

Singh told Reuters he stayed in a hotel, but told a Hindi language newspaper he stayed at Buckingham Palace.
Its saddening but still funny to know that how easy to fool people.

sorry, didnt realize we had this thread :)

Thought this was funny this isn't the complete article - just pasted part of it!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thursday, March 3, 2005 Posted: 12:52 PM EST (1752 GMT)

STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) -- Portly Swedish police have a new reason to work out thanks to a new security entrance at the National Police headquarters that won't let them in if they weigh too much.

A construction error in the recently remodeled security entrance, which has a built-in scale designed to only let one person at a time pass through the door, has caused some embarrassing moments for officers who may not have spent enough time exercising.

Those weighing more than 230 pounds (105 kilograms) who try to pass through the entrance are greeted by a recorded voice telling them: "Stop! One at a time!" and are not let through, police spokeswoman Linda Widmark said.

Hi

Post by Sandeep »

A little boy wanted Rs.50 very badly and prayed for weeks, but nothing
happened. Finally he decided to write God a letter requesting for
Rs.50.





When the postal authorities received the letter addressed to God,
INDIA, they decided to forward it to the PM of the India as a joke The
PM
was so amused, that he instructed his Secretary to send the little
boy
Rs.20. The PM thought this would appear to be a lot of money to a
little
boy, and he did not want to spoil the kid.





The little boy was delighted with Rs.20, and decided to write a
thank
you note to God, which read:





" Dear God:





Thank you very much for sending the money. However, I noticed
that
you sent it through the PM Office in New Delhi, and those donkeys
deducted
Rs.30 in taxes ... "

Sandeep, the good thing is that I am not a family doc. :)

You are correct that physicians often have lousy handwriting. One of the hospitals where I am a consultant has a contest where physicians are asked to correctly tell what another physician in that hospital had written as an order. There is a prize for coming up with the right answer and so far no one has been able to claim the prize (the original writer is too embarrassed to claim the prize also). :D

My clinic will go to paperless records in less than one year and one of my hospitals also is slowly getting there. No more scribbling notes on paper. :D Everything is being computerized. Thanks to all the engineers and computer experts.

P.S.
My teachers in school stressed on penmenship and I still write decently.
