1) Getting married is very much like going to continental
restaurant with friends. You order what you want, and
then when you see what the other fellow has, you wish
you had ordered that.

2) At the cocktail party, one woman said to another,
?Aren?t you wearing your wedding ring on the wrong
finger?? The other replied, ?Yes, I am. I married
the wrong man.?

3) Man is incomplete until he is married.
Then he is really finished.

4) A happy marriage is a matter of give and take;
the husband gives and the wife takes.

5) Marriage is an institution in which a man loses his
bachelor?s degree and the woman gets her master?s.

6) A little boy asked his father, ?Daddy, how much does
it cost to get married?? And the father replied,
?I don?t know, son, I?m still paying for it.?

7) Young son: ?Is it true, Dad, I heard that in some parts
of Africa a man doesn?t know his wife until he marries
her?? Dad: ?That happens in most countries son.?

8) Then there was a man who said, ?I never knew what real
happiness was until I got married; and then it was too late.?

9) When a newly married man looks happy, we know why.
But when a ten-year married man looks happy we wonder why.

10) Married life is very frustrating. In the first year of
marriage, the man speaks and the woman listens. In the
second year, the woman speaks and the man listens. In
the third year, they both speak and the neighbors listen.

11) After a quarrel, a wife said to her husband, ?You know, I
was a fool when I married you.? And the husband replied,
?Yes dear, but I was in love and didn?t notice it.?

12) It doesn?t matter how often a married man changes his job,
he still ends up with the same boss.

13) A man inserted an ?ad? in the classifieds: ?Wife wanted?.
The next day, he received a hundred letters. They all said
the same thing ?You can have mine?.

14) When a man opens the door of his car for his wife, you can
be sure of one thing; either the car is new or the wife.

15) A perfect wife is one who helps the husband with the dishes.

16) A woman was telling her friend, ?It is I who made my husband
a millionaire.? ?And what was he before you married him??
asked the friend. The woman replied, ?A multi-millionaire.?

Firefox Vs Internet Explorer

What to say? At first, there was war between Windows and Linux - both attacking each other. And now its between Firefox and Internet Explorer. Every now and then, we find such funny stuffs linked to this war.

While surfing, I did find something funny. Here is the picture. First, Internet Explorer completely slaughtered Netscape and now Firefox, the revamped Netscape/Mozilla browser is on a stampede to uproot Internet Explorer.

Personally speaking, I prefer Firefox over IE. Firefox has many facilities over IE but still comes with bugs. One of those I found is while executing some scripts, it shows CGI error. But the same script works wonders in IE!

I also heard the issues of Unicode support added in Firefox. One of my friends said the Unicode support in latest version of Firefox is not good.

The quote said in the picture above, reminded me of a certain dialogue from the movie the peter pan movies - "Hook" and "Peter Pan". In the movie it is said that if we say "I don't believe in fairies", a fairy dies. So to save fairies, we must say "I believe in fairies." So I thought this was similar.

Have fun with this.

Email Turns 34 years

So long have we been using email service. But many of us do not know the history of email. While surfing the net, I found some interesting articles. The article was written by Ray Tomlinson, the creator of emailing system. Back in 1971, he created, tested and implemented the first basic emailing system. I read through his article. I hope you guys will also like it.

The link to Ray's article is here

The BBC news has also posted its gratitude to email service. You can see it here.

I initially got these articles from google blog. The first engineer of gmail had written his views about gmail where he also posted link for first email system.

There is another place where you can see the first computers where the email system was tested. You can visit this one

We must be thankful for Ray because his innovation has been so much powerful and so much used. In this age, email has become quite important. It is synonymous to our own name now. With the creation of email, he changed the whole world. Hats off to such a persona.

First Pic on Web

Finally I'm back in Kathmandu after a week long Dashain vacation. I had quite alot of fun this time. Partying everyday, having fun, talking business and working (office work and domestic work). In short, I lived the days back in Pokhara.

Being back to work has new experiences. Taking charge of things is quite difficult after such a long holiday. I am ready to take charge but first I have to pull all the strings together to know where I had left before going on vacation.

Well, browsing thru the net, I found something interesting. I hope everybody will like it. The picture is copyright of wikipedia, hence I have placed its link. By doing this, I don't think I am messing with the copyright issue.

Have fun guys.

Synopsis for "It happens only in..." Series

The pictures in this series I got from a cousin of mine just as a humour. I had quite a laugh when I first looked at those pictures. But later, when I gave a serious thought, those pics were not funny, they were satarical to me. I posted those pictures as just other regular posts. I think some people are offended by it. As I had said in my previous post as well, they are actually to depict in what dire situations are the rural regions of the indian subcontinent. Now I think I have to change the title into "It happens only in SAARC".

In the past fifty years, the world has seen great lot of changes - whether it may be in the field of politics, industralization, education, medicine - you name it, everything has changed. They are not the same as they used to be.

By this wind of change, the South Asia subcontient is also affected. The urban areas started growing rapidly, massive industralization started in the region, in short, development (as termed by the modern people) came to the region. This is a good thing to happen. This region has always been mystic to the west. The orient was regarded as the dark region. But now, with the introduction of western technology and modern ideas, the orient is no longer mystic as it was before, but now it is on the run to take over the world. As I think about it now, I get happy as we are now on the verge of becoming the leaders of the world.

This happiness, has come with some dear cost. We are loosing our originality and forgetting our fellow people. The pictures I posted in the series, they depict the actual situation in the rural areas of the subcontinent.

With rapid urbanization, people from the villages swarmed into the big cities in search for work and food since everything got centered in the big cities only. This is still happening in Nepal, and India as well. This way, the rural areas started getting emptied from their able workforce and in the other hand, the big cities are getting flocked by people of all kinds. Too much crowded are the big cities now. Check Bombay, Banglore, Delhi, Kathmandu or any other cities by people migrating from the villages far and near. This has lead to high crime rates, increase in slum areas and poor living conditions in some parts of the big cities. I think this the biggest problems that most of the developing countries are facing.

The reasons for this, as I think, is improper or unplanned development or urbanization. This has affected the south asia region the most. While development is being planned, due to some reasons, rural areas have been left out or the projects are only focused in the urban areas (this is the condition here in Nepal, all the good things are here in Kathmandu only. So thats why I am here). All the new technologies are replacing the age old methods that the village people are using to cultivate their land, or make different goods (eg. plastic replaced mud utensils in the start of the last century) and so on. So the jobs are getting cut from the village. Due to lack of employment (hence lack of fund), people rush to cities with big dreams in their head. What they get is suffering and fight for survival.

I think this is the biggest problem persisting in this world right now (except George Bush's "War against Terrorism"). We humans, being social animals, should focus on such social issues more than following a bastard fanatic. This problem is not only of south asia, but of the whole world. This is happening everywhere.

As I think, there is very great need to solve this problem and stop this migration. We need to go back to our villages and establish our solid grounds there. As King Gyanendra says, "development should start from the grassroot level." I strongly agree with him (but I doubt if he will do what he says!). We should go back to the villages, take the modern technology, blend it with the age old traditional methods. The products of the rural areas should be provided market in the big cities. For this, I have already wrote my ideas in my previous post. We need to take roads everywhere. If all goes well, as in my dreams, then in the span of few years, people won't leave their home in villages in search of work in big cities. They will have a happy life and peace will prevail on earth.

I am not a strategist or planner. I am just a small time guy with ideas that may work or not. Of course, even if the countries follow the path I just described, there is much bureaucracy involved (and corruption as well). And it will take ages for things to work out.

If all things go smoothly, then the pictures I posted will be a history (and I want this to happen).

I hope you guys agree with me on this.

A Complete Man

I had a great day yesterday.

The started as usual dull saturday but in the evening, everything changed. I got a call from a person - that person turned out to be my college friend. He had returned from Australia after 5 years. Kishor is a big man, and now he is even more bigger.

Well, the same things happened when guys meet and sit in a restaurant. I met Prateek and Ritesh there - both Australia returned and planning to settle down here. As the bottle began to empty, our past life and our future started to come around us. We talked about many things and enjoyed them all. It is fun spending time with friends.

I can be proud of myself. They say, a person is defined by the watch he wears, that is true. I say, a man is defined by the company he keeps. Almost all of my KU friends have become something now and that is so good.

Some have gone in government job, some are engineers, some are doctors, me a business man, an entrepreneur. Almost all have found a path of his/her own in life. They seem content. And that is good - for them as well as for me. Even if we meet rarely, there are lots of things to share. We enjoy at the fullest extent.

I can define my circle as circle of young hot bloods who have fire within themselves, love their country and are self aware that they have to do something. We all have similar ideas. When I am with them, I think I am complete. My life started from KU. The friends I made there are my life.

When I am with them, I am complete. Whenever or wherever we meet, we will complement each other, we will complete each other.

Yes, I am a complete man now. I am grown up, I work, I think, I do and of course I drink as well :->, all things a man does.
