Does people considers North East a part of India?

Hi all, I was looking at the NDTV India news and was quite shocked to see the disturbing pictures being shown regarding the clash between the Tea tribes and the local people in Guwahati. As from a civilized society, we can never support such incident, but at this moment we need to pacify the situation before it spreads to other areas. Many of the information provided in the channel are not correct which may further provoke the tea tribes to create unrest in their areas. I am not sure the reporter who was gathering information how much competent he is but he needs to get a genuine report on the whole incident. The incident started with the involvement of people from the 15,000 strong crowd of the tea tribals in destroying properties of local people on the way and also manhandling people passing by. The resident of Guwahati so far bearing the series of bomb blast, bandhs etc cound’t stop themselves to see their own properties being destroyed by the tribals right in front of them and jumped into action. It also has not been mentioned that many people among the tribal crowd were carrying weapons which puts a question mark into their intention of the procession.

Lots of innocents both from the tea tribes and local areas were victimised out of which many were woman. The main blame has to go to the government for not able to mobilise enough security reinforcement and to the Leaders of the Tea tribals who has instigated the crowd to become violent.

The way NDTV is showing naked women running in streets and just one sided picture of injured tea tribes, it will provoke the illiterate tribes further to get into violence which will embroil more innocent people into trouble. We need to make sure that our fourth pillar of democracy doesn’t bring plight to people’s lives.. Moreover, when the incidence was happening channel was more busy with covering the cricket news, now after 2 days when they found a naked photo of a women running in the street, the channel trying to add fuel on the fire.

I would like to request the NDTV channel to consider the impact while displaying any such sensitive photos because we North eastern are already suffering from many burning issues.

What is love? & what is Marriage?

A student asks a teacher, “What is love?”

The teacher said, “in order to answer your question, go to the wheat field and choose the biggest wheat and come back.

But the rule is: you can go through them only once and cannot turn backto pick.”

The student went to the field, go thru first row, he saw one big wheat, but he wonders….may be there is a bigger one later.

Then he saw another bigger one… but may be there is an even bigger one waiting for him.

Later, when he finished more than half of the wheat field, he start to realise that the wheat is not as big as the previous one he saw, he know he has missed the biggest one, and he regretted.

So, he ended up went back to the teacher with empty hand.

The teacher told him, “…this is love… you keep looking for a better one, but when later you realise, you have already miss the person….”*

*”What is marriage then?” the student asked.

The teacher said, “in order to answer your question, go to the corn field and choose the biggest corn and come back. But the rule is: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back to pick.”

The Parable Of The Spoons (A Beautiful Story)

The Parable Of The Spoons (A Beautiful Story)

A holy man was having a conversation with the Lord one day and said, “Lord, I would like to know what Heaven and Hell are like. “The Lord led the holy man to two doors.
He opened one of the doors and the holy man looked in. In the middle of the room was a large round table. In the middle of the table was a large pot of stew which smelled delicious and made the holy man’s mouth water.

The people sitting around the table were thin and sickly. They appeared to be famished. They were holding spoons with very long handles and each found it
possible to reach into the pot of stew and take a spoonful, but because the handle
was longer than their arms, they could not get the spoons back into their mouths. The holy man shuddered at the sight of their misery and suffering. The Lord said, “You have seen Hell.”

They went to the next room and opened the door. It was exactly the same as the first one. There was the large round table with the large pot of stew which made the holy man’s mouth water. The people were equipped with the same long-handled spoons, but here the people were well nourished and plump, laughing and talking. The holy man said, “I don’t understand.”

It is simple” said the Lord, “it requires but one skill. You see, they have learned to feed each other. While the greedy think only of themselves.

At training program for Top Management …

A well-known motivational speaker gathering the entire crowd’s attention, said, “The best years of my Life were spent in the arms of a woman who wasn’t my Wife!”

The crowd was shocked.

He followed up by saying, “That Woman was my Mother!”

The crowd burst into laughter and he gave his speech, which was well received.

About a week later, one of the top managers who had the training decided to use that joke at his house. He tried to rehearse the joke in his head, as it was a bit foggy to him.

He said loudly, “The greatest years of my life were spent in the arms of a Woman who was not my Wife!”

Naturally, his wife was shell-shocked.

After standing there for almost 10 seconds trying to recall the second half of the joke, the manager finally blurted out “… and I can’t remember Who She Was !”

As expected, he got thrashing of his lifetime….!!

Moral of the Story: Don’t Copy if you can’t Paste
