Humor - The Tomato Story

A Jobless man applied for the position of 'office boy' at Microsoft. The HR manager interviewed him then watched him cleaning the floor as a test.

"You are employed" he said.  "Give me your e-mail address and I'll send you the application to fill in, as well as date when  you may start."

The man replied "But I don't have a computer, neither an email."

"I'm sorry", said the HR manager. "If you don't have an email, that means you do not exist. And who doesn't exist, cannot have the job." 

The man left with no hope at all. He didn't know what to do, with only $10 in his pocket. He then decided to go to the supermarket and buy a 10Kg tomato crate.

He then sold the tomatoes in a door to door round. In less than two hours, he succeeded to double his capital. He repeated the operation three times, and returned home with $60.

The man realized that he can survive by this way, and started to go everyday earlier, and return late. Thus, his money doubled or tripled everyday.

Shortly, he bought a cart, then a truck, and then he had his own fleet of delivery vehicles.

5 years later, the man is one of the biggest food retailers in the US.
He started to plan his family's future, and decided to have a life insurance. 

He called an insurance broker, and chose a protection plan. 
When the conversation was concluded the broker asked him his email. 
The man replied, "I don't have an email."

The broker answered curiously, "You don't have an email, and yet have succeeded to build an empire. Can you imagine what you could have been if you had an e mail?!?"

The man thought for a while and replied, "Yes, I'd be an office boy at Microsoft!"

Moral of the story # 1 
Internet is not the solution to your life.

Moral of the story # 2   
If you don't have Internet, and work hard, you can be a millionaire.

Moral of the story # 3 
If you are reading this message on Internet, you are closer to being a office boy/girl, than a millionaire.................

P.S.:  I am closing my blogspot account and going to sell tomatoes :D

Poetry: Me, Myself and I

I dug through my mess and found one of the poems I had written back in 2003.
There comes a time in our life when we talk to ourselves - that's what I do here.
Just thought of sharing...although I'm not sure how much the poem makes sense  :-)

Mehendi Designs / Henna Art

I absolutely love putting mehendi (henna) on hands and feet.  When it's the darkest, it almost makes up for any missing jewelry!  Here's a small collection of some mehendi designs I drew (either by seeing a mehendi book or from mehndi design pictures on the internet) ... and remembered to click a photo of!

Dumb Charades Game Ideas

Who doesn't love the very popular game of Dumb Charades!?  Whether it's the immense effort in performing or racking brains out to understand someone else's actions, both are just as much fun - a game that's easy to organize, requires almost no props, and a favorite of most!

Movies are the most popular for Dumb Charades.  Acting out a song is very challenging.

For now, here's a variation to this game.
