Mahabharat and Bharat


 Duryodhan & Rahul Gandhi – both without talent. but yet wanted to be rulers on the principle of birth-right.

Bhishma & Advani – Never crowned. got respect & yet became helpless at the end of their lives.

Arjun & Narendra – Both talented. reached the highest position due to being on the side of dharma. but realise how difficult it is to follow and practice.

Karna & Manmohan Singh – Both intelligent. but never reached anywhere being on the side of adharma.

Abhimanyu & Kejriwal – Both new in war. they did not pass the chakravyuh test that enemies had spread around them & got trapped somewhere in between.

Shakuni & Digvijay Singh – Both wanted their masters to be happy irrespective of talent or right.

Dhritrashtra & Sonia – Both were blind for love of their sons.

And Last – Krishna And Abdul Kalam – We celebrate both of them but do not follow what they taught and preached. 

Management Decisions


This is one funny forward I got it from Aparnaa who blogs at http://lunchtime-arratai.blogspot.com/

Once PVNR (PV Narasimha Rao), L.K. Advani and Laloo Prasad Yadav were
travelling in an Auto Rickshaw. They met with an accident and all three of them died. Yama was waiting for this moment at the doorstep of death. He asks PVNR and Advani to go to HEAVEN. But, for Laloo, Yama had already decided that he should be sent to HELL. Laloo is not at all happy with this decision. He asks Yama as to why this discrimination is being made. All the three of them had served the public. Similarly, all took bribes, all misused public positions, etc. Then why the differential treatment? He felt that there should be a formal test or an objective evaluation before a decision is made and should not be just based on opinion or preconceived notions.

Yama agrees to this and asks all the three of them to appear for an English test.
1] PVNR is asked to spell “INDIA” and he does it correctly. Advani is
asked to spell “ENGLAND” and he too passes. It is Laloo’s turn and he is asked to spell “CZECHOSLOVAKIA”. Laloo protests that he doesn’t know
English. He says this is not fair and that he was given a tough question and thus forced to fail with false intent. Yama then agrees to conduct a written test in Hindi (to give another chance assuming that Laloo should at least feel that Hindi would provide an equal platform for all three).

2] PVNR is asked to write “KUTTA BOLA BHOW BHOW”. He writes it easily and passes. Advani is asked to write “BILLY BOLI MYAUN MYAUN”. He too passes. Laloo is asked to write “BANDAR BOLA GRRRRRR…..” Tough one. He fails again. Laloo is extremely unhappy. Having been a student of history (which the other two weren’t), he now requested for all the 3 to be subjected to a test in history Yama says OK but this would be the last chance and that he would not take any more tests.

3] PVNR is asked: “When did India get Independence?”. He replied “1947” and passed. Advani is asked “How many people died during the independence struggle?” He gets nervous. Yama asked him to choose from 3 options: 100,000 or 200,000 or 300,000.Advani catches it and says 200,000 and passes. It’s Laloo’s turn now.Yama asks him to give the Name and Address of each of the 200,000 who died in the independence struggle. Laloo accepts defeat and agrees to go to HELL.

Moral of the story: IF YOUR MANAGEMENT HAS DECIDED TO SCREW YOU, THERE IS NO ESCAPE.
