Kwality Walls – a ticking Bomb.

On Oct 2003, all kids, and chocolate lovers like me got a shock of their life. Our favorite brand Cadbury’s Dairy Milk is infested with worms. The packaging of this great product was poor which allowed it to spoil.
After numerous out of court settlements, product recall, apologies, and millions of dollars spend in revamping the system, Cadburys is back on its feet.

Do our Ice-cream vendors also want to witness the same fate?
The bulk of the ice cream is sold in 500ml bricks, or in cups, yet their packaging has evolved little over the past 2 decades.
1) Cardboard is not tamper proof, and becomes really venerable when moisture condenses on it.
2) The lids of the ice cream cups never even cover the ice cream completely. Hence giving a free hand to the air-borne contamination. If the curd sellers can put a tamper proof aluminum foil sealing on the yogurt/curd cups why can’t higher priced ice cream vendors do the same?
I seriously feel that some of the ice cream cups are actually recovered from the thrash can and refilled. If the packaging is not soon improved, the next guys defending themselves in consumer court shall be these ice cream vendors.


The Pastor’s Ass

The pastor entered his donkey in a race and it won. The pastor was so
pleased with the donkey that he entered it in the race again, and it won again.

The local paper read:


The Bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered the pastor not to enter the donkey in another race.
The next day, the local paper headline read:


This was too much for the bishop, so he ordered the pastor to get rid of the donkey. The pastor decided to give it to a nun in a nearby convent.
The local paper, hearing of the news, posted the following headline
The next day:


The bishop fainted. He informed the nun that she would have to get rid of the donkey, so she sold it to a farmer for $10.
The next day the paper read:


This was too much for the bishop, so he ordered the nun to buy back the donkey and lead it to the plains where it could run wild.
The next day the headlines read:


The bishop was buried the next day.

The moral of the story is….being concerned about public opinion can
bring you much grief and misery…and even shorten your life.
So be yourself and enjoy life…
Stop worrying about everyone else’s ass and you’ll be a lot happier
and live longer!



1. If you are choking on an ice cube, don’t panic. Simply pour a cup of boiling water down your throat and presto. The blockage will be almost instantly removed.
2. Clumsy? Avoid cutting yourself while slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold them while you chop away.
3. Avoid arguments with the Mrs. about lifting the toilet seat by simply using the sink.
4. For high blood pressure sufferers: simply cut yourself and bleed for a few minutes, thus reducing the pressure in your veins. Remember to use a timer.
5. A mouse trap, placed on top of your alarm clock, will prevent you from rolling over and going back to sleep after you hit the snooze button.
6. If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives, then you will be afraid to cough.
7. Have a bad toothache? Smash your thumb with a hammer and you will forget about the toothache.
8. Sometimes, we just need to remember what the rules of life really are: You only need two tools: WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn’t move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn’t move and does, use the duct tape.

*** Remember*** Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.

Oedipus complex

Bella was upset because her fiancé had been to a clinical psychologist and the results were not good.
She told her mother, “I don’t think I can marry Marvin, Ma. His psychologist told him he has an Oedipus complex.”
Her mother shrugged and said, “Bella, don’t listen to all that fancy talk. I’ve watched Marvin and he seems fine to me. Just look how much he loves his mother.”


No Joint Probe

Why is Pranab Mukherjee is adamant is not allowing Pakistanis to probe the blast site?
We give big lectures on transparency, then why don’t we follow them? If India believes that it is not responsible for the death of Pakistani Nationals, then all their government to investigate.


Indian kids more famished than Sub-Saharan African

Read this news article from WorldBank quoting a UNICEF study on kids.

Also read this article about how UN actually used Peace Keeping contracts as bargaining chips. Considering that Bangladesh, Pakistan, India and Nepal together constitute majority of the UN peace keepers, this development can have undesirable influence over the sub-continent.

Thought 1

A Man was walking down a street when he heard a voice from behind, “If you take one more step, a brick will fall down on your head and kill you.”
The man stopped and a big brick fell right in front of him. The man was astonished.

He went on, and after a while he was going to cross the road.
Once again the voice shouted, “Stop! Stand still! If you take one more step a car will run over you, and you will die.”
The man did as he was instructed, just as a car came careening around the corner, barely missing him.

The man asked. “Who are you?”
“I am your guardian angel,” the voice answered.
“Oh, yeah?” the man asked “And where the hell were you when I got married?”


Thought 2 #

Everyone in the wedding ceremony was watching the radiant bride as her father escorted her down the aisle to give away to the groom. They reached the altar and the waiting groom; the bride kissed her father and placed some thing in his hand.

Everyone in the room was wondering what was given to the father by the bride. The father could feel the suspense in the air and all eyes were on him to divulge the secret and say something.
So he announced “Ladies and Gentlemen today is the luckiest day of my life.”
Then he raised his hands with what his daughter gave him and continued, “My daughter finally, finally returned my credit card to me.”

The whole audience including priest started laughing……….but not the poor groom!

Communal Intolerance

You know what is the problem with India?
It’s the Muslims.

India has been under Muslim rule since 1001 (when Sultan Mahmud Ghaznavi defeated Raja Jayapala of the Hindu Shahi Dynasty of Gandhara) till 1857 when the last of Muslim ruler Bahadur Shah Zafar (a reluctant leader) was captured. But still Muslims constitute less than 1/7 of the Indian population.

Muslims had the largest armies and controlled the most fertile lands for 800, yet they were unsuccessful in eliminating a threat. Why?
Is it because they were too genteel to force their subjects to adopt their faith?

At any given point of time in the country’s history, you are more likely to find a Hindu dominated area in a region under a prolonged Muslim rule (>100 years) than a Muslim dominated area under a Hindu ruler. Why?

If Akbar and other secular Muslim rulers would have seen Hindus of today, they might have probably sanctioned genocides rather than fund a Golden Temple.

When I see a communal violence, I do not know whom to blame.
Should I blame Muslims from this lack of foresight or should I blame Hindus for not being civilized?

Inherently we Hindus are fanatics who worship Swastika. During 3rd century BC we brutally exiled all the Buddhist cults that flourished during the time of Ashoka. Then 3 centuries later, we killed the Disciples of Christ who landed in Kerela.

Do you know what happened on the day India got Independence? These fanatics went back to their barbaric ways. They would have succeeded 60 years ago, had that old man in khadi was not there. But today, under the able leadership of Shiv Sena and VHP, this country shall be cleansed of beef eaters.


Old People Have Problems Too

An 85-year-old man was requested by his doctor for a sperm count as part of his physical exam.

The doctor gave the man a jar and said, “Take this jar home and bring back a semen sample tomorrow.”

The next day the 85-year-old man reappeared at the doctor’s office and gave him the jar, which was as clean and empty as on the previous day.

The doctor asked what happened and the man explained, “Well, doc, it’s like this – first I tried with my right hand, but nothing. Then I tried with my left hand, but still nothing.

Then I asked my wife for help. She tried with her right hand, then with her left, still nothing. She tried with her mouth, first with the teeth in, then with her teeth out, still nothing.

We even called up Arleen, the lady next door and she tried too, first with both hands, then an armpit, and she even tried squeezin’ it between her knees, but still nothing.

The doctor was shocked! “You asked your neighbor?”
The old man replied, “Yep, none of us could get the jar open.”
