TEACHER: There will be an elementary science test next week. Contrary to his nature, Karma reads his book from cover to cover like no man’s business. On test day, teacher lines up about 5 birds, covering each with a piece of cloth so only their legs is visible.
QUESTION: Looking at the leg of a bird write down its common name, species, family, zoological name, habitat etc. After about 20 minutes of frustration and not writing down anything, Karma storms to the teacher’s desk and slams his blank sheet in front of the teacher.
KARMA: Sir, this test makes no sense! I am going home!
TEACHER: What a rude boy! Come back here. What is your name? Karma raises his Gho little up and points to his leg “Oya, you too, look at my leg and tell me my name, my family, my house address, what tribe I come from….
Bananas containing three natural sugars – sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber, a banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy. Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world's leading athletes. But energy isn't the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.
Depression: According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier. PMS: Forget the pills – eat a banana. The Vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.
Anemia: High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.
Blood Pressure: This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it the perfect to beat blood pressure. So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration have just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for the fruit's ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.
Brain Power: 200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex) school were helped through their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.
Constipation: High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.
Hangovers: One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.
Heartburn: Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.
Morning Sickness: Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.
Mosquito bites: Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of a banana skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.
Nerves: Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system.
Overweight and at work? Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and Crisps. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report concluded that, to avoid panic-induced food cravings; we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady.
Ulcers: The banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chronicler cases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.
Temperature control: Many other cultures see bananas as a “cooling” fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In Thailand, for example, pregnant women eat bananas to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature.
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD): Bananas can help SAD sufferers because they contain the natural mood enhancer tryptophan.
Smoking: Bananas can also help people trying to give up smoking. The B6, B12 they contain, as well as the potassium and magnesium found in them, help the body recover from the effects of nicotine withdrawal.
Stress: Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps normalize the heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates your body's water balance. When we are stressed, our metabolic rate rises, thereby reducing our potassium levels. These can be rebalanced with the help of a high-potassium banana snack.
Strokes: According to research in “The New England Journal of Medicine, “eating bananas as part of a regular diet can cut the risk of death by strokes by as much as 40%!
Warts: Those keen on natural alternatives swear that if you want to kill off a wart, take a piece of banana skin and place it on the wart, with the yellow side out. Carefully hold the skin in place with a plaster or surgical tape! So, a banana really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has four times the protein, twice the carbohydrate, three times the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around.
So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, “A banana a day keeps the doctor away!”
PS Bananas must be the reason monkeys are so happy all the time! Always make sure to include it in your shopping list. After Reading THIS, you'll NEVER look at a banana in the same way again.
A person can go two weeks without eating. But if he doesn't rest at all, he can only survive for one week. Sleeping provides us the time to rest our internal organs, eyes and brains. Poor sleep quality can cause internal damage to our internal organs and brains. Therefore, sleeping is very important to us. If you wish to have a long life and stay healthy, please take note of the advice below.
5 DON'TS when you are sleeping
1) DON'T SLEEP WITH WATCH
Watches can emit a certain level of radioactivity. Though small, but if you wear your watch to bed for a long time, it might have adverse effects on your health.
2) DON'T SLEEP WITH BRA
3) DON'T SLEEP WITH PHONE
Putting the phone beside your bed or anywhere near you is not encouraged. Though some of us will use phones as alarm clocks, but please put the phone as far as possible. Scientists have proved that electrical items including mobile phone and television sets emit magnetic waves when used. These waves can cause disruptions to our nervous system. Therefore if you need to put! Your mobile phone near you, switch it off first.
4) DON'T SLEEP WITH MAKE UP
People who sleep with make up might have skin problems in the long run. Sleeping with make up will cause the skin to have difficulty in breathing and problem in perspiring. You will also need a much longer time to go into deep sleep.
5) DON'T SLEEP WITH OTHERS' SPOUSE
You may never wake up again.
A woman came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find her 7-year old daughter waiting for her at the door.
DAUGHTER: 'Mom, May I ask you a question?'
MOM: 'Yeah sure, what it is?' replied the woman.
DAUGHTER: 'Mom, how much do you earn in a day?'
MOM: 'That's none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?' the woman said angrily.
DAUGHTER: 'I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you earn in a day?'
MOM: 'If you must know, I earn Nu.100 in a day.'
DAUGHTER: 'Oh,' the little girl replied, with her head down.
DAUGHTER: 'Mommy, may I please borrow Nu.50?'
The mother was furious, 'If the only reason you asked that is so you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why you are being so selfish…. I don't work hard every day for such childish frivolities.' The little girl quietly went to her room and shut the door.., The woman sat down and started to get even angrier about the little girl's questions…..How dare she ask such questions only to get some money? After about an hour or so, the woman had calmed down, and started to think: May be there was something she really needed to buy with that Nu50.00 and she really didn't ask for money very often.
The woman went to the door of the little girl's room and opened the door. 'Are you asleep, Chechay?' She asked. 'No mom, I'm awake,' replied the girl. 'I've been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier' said the woman. 'It's been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you. Here's the Nu.50 you asked for.' The little girl sat straight up, smiling. 'Oh, thank you mommy!' She yelled. Then, reaching under her pillow she pulled out some crumpled up collected notes and coins. The woman saw that the girl already had money, started to get angry again. The little girl slowly counted out her money, and then looked up at her mother. 'Why do you want more money if you already have some?' the mother grumbled.. Because I didn't have enough, but now I do,' the little girl replied. 'Mommy, I have Nu.100 now. Can I buy a day of your time? I want to spend a day with you, Mom and have lunch and dinner with you.'
The mother was crushed. She put her arms around her little daughter, tears swelling in her eyes and she begged for her forgiveness.
It's just a short reminder to all of you working so hard in life. We should not let time slip through our fingers without having spent some time with those who really matter to us, those close to our hearts. Do remember to share that Nu.100 worth of your time with someone you love..
If we die tomorrow, the department that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of hours, but the family & friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives.
Laloo Yadav went to
Laloo Yadav: O-Hallooo!
Laloo Yadav smirks as it is an unfamiliar male voice. He says: Kaun bol raha hai?
Reply: Shaab, main Bahadur.
Laloo Yadav: Bahadur, where did you come from?
Bahadur: Shaab, memsahaab has kept me here.
Laloo Yadav shifts uneasily on learning that Rabri’s daring at keeping a pahari Bahadur just the day he has left home. He says: Ok, go and call memsaab.
Bahadur – Shaab, Memshaab is sleeping with Shaab!
Laloo Yadav turns red and wild with anger. He screams into the phone: Listen Bahadur, listen to me. I am your real Sahib.
Bahadur: But then who is sleeping with Memshaab?
Laloo Yadav: Woh koi ullu ka pattha hai. Go to the drawing room and get my gun which is hanging there.
After a few seconds Bahadur comes back: Shaab, I’ve got the gun!
Laloo Yadav: And just around there in the drawers should be the bullets, take them and fit them into the gun.
After a minute Bahadur replies: Shaab, it’s ready now.
Laloo Yadav: Now go and kill both the the Memsahib and the fake Sahib!
Two gunshots are heard and Bahadur comes back to the phone: Shaab, I’ve shot both of them, what do I do with the dead bodies?
Laloo Yadav: Just dig a hole in the garden and bury both of them in it.
Bahadur: Shaab, I don’t get it! This is the fifteenth floor, there’s no garden here!
Laloo Yadav: Oh, sorry, wrong number!

Karma: “So? Were you afraid?”

Mrs Khawjay had bought a beautiful sweater for Mr. Khawjay. She sent it to her husband by parcel post along with a note. The note said: “The buttons of the sweater are removed since they were too heavy and added to the postage” You will find them in the right hand pocket of the sweater.
Ap Sangchu gets into his car and calls the police. He screams, “Police, help! Someone has broken into my car! Everything's gone, the accelerator's been stolen, the driving wheel's gone and even the dashboard's missing!”
The police promises to rush over to him and Ap Sangchu hangs up in relief. But a minute later before the police can leave another call from Ap Sangchu comes in. And Ap Sangchu says, “Never mind, I got in the back seat.”
A small boy asks his Dad, What is politics?” Dad says, “Well son, let me try to explain it this way:
I'm the breadwinner of the family, so let's call me Capitalism.
Your Mom, she's the administrator of the money, so we'll call her the Government.
We're here to take care of your needs, so we'll call you the People.
The nanny, we'll consider her the Working Class.
And your baby brother, we'll call him the Future.
Now, think about that and see if that makes sense.”
So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what his Dad has said. Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper. So the little boy goes to his parents' room and finds his mother sound asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny's room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and goes back to bed.
The next morning, the little boy says to his father, “Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics now.”
The father says, “Good, son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about”.
The little boy replies, “Well, while Capitalism is screwing the Working Class, the Government is sound asleep, the People are being ignored and the Future is in Deep Shit.”
The Echo of Life
A man and his son were walking in the forest. Suddenly the boy trips and feeling a sharp pain he screams, “Ahhhh!” Surprised, he hears a voice coming from the mountain, “Ahhhh!” Filled with curiosity, he screams: “Who are you?”, but the only answer he receives is: “Who are you?” This makes him angry, so he screams: “You are a coward!”, and the voice answers: “You are a coward!”
He looks at his father, asking, “Dad, what is going on?”“Son,” the man replies, “Pay attention!”
Then he screams, “I admire you!” The voice answers: “I admire you!” The father shouts, “You are wonderful!”, and the voice answers: “You are wonderful!”Then the father explains, “People call this ‘ECHO’, but truly it is ‘LIFE’! Life always gives you back what you give out.
Life is a mirror of your actions.
If you want more love, give more love! If you want more kindness, give more kindness! If you want understanding and respect, give understanding and respect! If you want people to be patient and respectful to you, give patience and respect! This rule of nature applies to every aspect of our lives.” Life always gives you back what you give out. Your life is not a coincidence, but a mirror of your own doings.
