Mr. Sigay Doj was a great money borrower. He borrows from his friends, colleagues, a little known persons as well. He only needs to be introduced to a person and the very next day, he will go and borrow from the stranger.

He borrowed a huge sum from Pem saying he will return by 11 am but did not give the dates. He gave in writing the sum, his name, designation but a wrong address. Pem knows him well so did not bother the address as she knows where he works.

Many a times, she went to follow up on her repayment. He gave many excuses and never repaid her. Sometimes he was hiding when he sees her coming. One fine day, Pem told her friend Seday to go and collect the money from Sigay Doj saying she will share half with her.

Seday took the piece of paper and went to the address given. She was directed to his chamber. He received her well and asked the purpose of her visit. She said, I came to collect your dues to Pem and showed the paper too. He responded by saying, “I did not borrow any money from her” nor do I borrow from ladies.” To this answer, Seday got wild and shouted,  “you don't feel ashamed to tell lie when you are holding such a respectable position”. There were people around but they didn't seem to bother when they could hear. Seday got wilder thinking he must be really a cheater.

Whatever said and done she could not get the repayment. The person got wild too and said he will file a case. She was wild too and said she will file a case.

In reality, Mr. Sigay Doj took advantage of giving the address of a person with similar name and same designation. It wasn't once or twice so the people there were fed up and did not bother.

The names have been changed to protect their identity.

beastard or Very Good

05 Apr 2011 Author dumbo

Ms. Seday (name changed) uses only two comments to a statement passed on to her i.e. either beastard (supposed to be bastard but pronounces that way) or very good. 

One day, a very sad news was to be conveyed to her. All her friends and faculty were afraid to pass on that message to her for fear of not knowing how she will react to that statement. The message was, “your mother has met an accident and expired and you have to leave immediately”.  

What ever the message has to be passed on to her for she was the only living child. So, all the friends went in a group and one out of them conveyed the very sad message.
Ms. Seday immediately uttered “Very Good” Refer the above, she only uses two comments but went into tears and coma. The friends were ?

On a fine Sunday morning, one of the former Ministers ordered his driver “HaaZam chi Kheshos”
The driver went to the town and asked every lady that passed by whether they were from Haa. Everyone said no. An hour passed, he got so tensed and worried. Then he remembered that there is a HapZam he knew. In the beginning, she was very reluctant to go. It was very difficult to convince her but he managed to. Upon reaching back, the driver reported that “HaaZam Chhig Wong Yi la” To that, the Minister said, 'Nangna Tsuk Dha”. When the lady entered, the Minister got wild and scolded the driver that he asked for a barber not really realising that it was his fault. (in official Hindi, barber is called HaaZam) has become very very slow

I do not know whether other's are facing the same problem like me. You cannot see what you type. Not only that, you click on something and have to wait for ages for that to happen. I don't think people will have the patience to wait this long these days. In order to keep alive, can the moderators do something to make it faster. Perhaps, taking away the formating portion may help.

One fine eveing, a Chilip went for a walk. On the way, one Sadharji was sitting. The Chilip asked 'Are you Relaxing?'. The Sadarji said, no, I am Mikhail Singh.

Lights on

10 Mar 2009 Author dumbo

Once some officials went on a field trip. Since they were many, they took two vehicles. They could get only one room in Zhemgang for two officials (expats) and two drivers. Two officials slept on the beds while the two drivers slept on the floor.

One of the officials was used to sleeping with the lights on and slept. The drivers and the other official was not used to sleeping with lights on. One of the drivers used to get up and look around occasionally. One time, he saw the other official also struggling to sleep.

He said, Sir, can I kill the light? (he actually meant to say, can I put off the light). the expat couldn't understand him. He asked the other driver who was not asleep what he meant to say. The other driver said, he means to say that he wants to fuse the light. To that the expat said, no, no, please don't do that. That way, they all (3 of them) had to struggle to sleep with the lights on.

Lets have snax

10 Mar 2009 Author dumbo

An expat and a driver was driving a long journey. The expat took some packed food along. On the way, the expat asked the driver to stop the car. The driver stopped the car. Then the expat said, lets go and have some snacks. To that that driver got angry and said, no, I don't eat snacks. The expat again asked are you sure. The driver said, yes, I don't eat snacks.

Then the expat took his packed food and went aside and ate. The driver was curious and went near to see whether he was really eating snakes. To his surprise, the expat was eating sand witches, donuts and juice. The driver was hungry and got angry. He said to himself that the expat was wrong. He should say, lets go and eat food.

burn the torch

10 Mar 2009 Author dumbo

An expat and a driver went to a dinner party. While going, the driver took his torch light whereas the expat did not take his. At the site, torch was necessary. The expat asked the driver to go and get his torch light. To that the driver said, you can burn my torch. The expat said, no I don't want to burn your torch. Please get my torch. The driver actually translated literally from Southern Bhutanese Kha 'torch jalangni' so communication between them became difficult.

If you are a woman and use pads, but especially if you use tampons, read  this and pass it on to your friends. For the men receiving this email,  please forward it to your friends, significant others, sisters, mothers,  daughters, etc.) Thanks!   Check the labels of the sanitary pads or tampons that you are going to  buy the next time and see whether you spot any of the familiar signs  stated in this email.   No wonder so many women in the world suffer from cervical cancer and  womb tumors. Have you heard that tampon makers include asbestos in  tampons? Why would they do this?   Because asbestos makes you bleed more, if you bleed more, you're going  to need to use more.. Why isn't this against the law since asbestos is so  dangerous? Because the powers that be, in all their wisdom (not), did  not consider tampons as being ingested, and, therefore, didn't consider  them illegal or dangerous.  This month's Essence magazine has small article about this and they  mention two manufacturers of a cotton tampon alternative. The companies  are: Organic Essentials @1-800) 765-6491 and Terra Femme @(800)755-0212.   A woman getting her Ph.D. at University of Colorado at Boulder sent the  following: 'I am writing this because women are not being informed about  the dangers of something most of us use: tampons. I am taking a class  this month and I have been learning a lot about biology and women,  including much about feminine hygiene. Recently we have learned that  tampons are actually dangerous (for other reasons than TSS). I'll tell  you this – after learning about this in our class, most of the females  wound up feeling angry and upset with the tampon industry, and I for  one, am going to do something about it To start, I want to inform  everyone I can, and email is the fastest way that I know how    HERE ! IS THE SCOOP:  Tampons contain two things that are potentially harmf ul: Rayon (for  absorbency), and dioxin (a chemical used in bleaching the products). The  tampon industry is convinced that we, as women, need bleached white  products in order to view the product as pure and clean. The problem  here is that the dioxin, which is produced in this bleaching process,  can lead to very harmful problems for a woman. Dioxin is potentially  carcinogenic cancer-associated)and is toxic to the immune and  reproductive systems. It has also been linked to endometriosis and lower  sperm counts for men. For both sexes, it breaks down the immune system.    Last September, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reported that  there really is no set 'acceptable' level of exposure to dioxin given  that it is cumulative and slow to disintegrate. The real danger comes  from repeated contact Karen Couppert 'Pulling the Plug on the Tampon  Industry'). I'd say using about 4-5 tampons a day, five days a month,  for 38 menstruating years is 'repeated contact', wouldn't y! ou? Rayon  contributes to the danger of tampons and dioxin because it is a highly  absorbent substance. Therefore, when fibers from the tampons are left  behind in the vagina (as usually occurs), it creates a breeding ground  for the dioxin. It also stays in a lot longer than it would with just  cotton tampons. This is also the reason why TSS (toxic shock syndrome)  occurs.   WHAT ARE THE ALTERNATIVES?   Using feminine hygiene products that aren't bleached and that are all  cotton. Other feminine hygiene products  (pads/napkins) contain dioxin as well, but they are not nearly as  dangerous since they are not in direct contact with the vagina. The  pads/napkins need to stop being bleached, but, obviously, tampons are  the most dangerous.      So, what can you do if you can't give up using tampons? Use tampons that  are made from 100% cotton, and that are UNBLEACHED. Unfortunately, there  are very few compani! es that make these safe tampons. They are usually  only found in health food stores.    Countries all over the world ( Sweden , Germany , British Columbia , etc.)  have demanded a switch to this safer tampon, while the U.S. has decided  to keep us in the dark about it. In 1989, activists in England mounted a  campaign against chlorine bleaching. Six weeks and 50,000 letters later,  the makers of sanitary products switched to oxygen bleaching (one of the  green methods available) (MS magazine, May/June 1995).   WHAT TO DO NOW:  Tell people. Everyone. Inform them. We are being manipulated by this  industry and the government, let's do something about it! Please write  to the companies: Tampax(Tambrands), Playtex, O.B., Kotex. Call the 800  numbers listed on the boxes. Let them know that we demand a safe product  ALL COTTON UNBLEACHED TAMPONS.   AND FOR THOSE OF US WHO USE SANITARY NAPKINS/PADS:   IF u ever wondered what were the ingredients that made popular brands so  'free! and light and carefree', well here's the bit:   The material that makes the pad so paper THIN, is cellulose gel. Yeap,  it's not even cotton!!!!!!    DO NOT wear the same pad for more than 3 hours of a maximum!!! After  this duration, the genital area is prone to bacterial action and may  result in cervical cancer or other complications!!!!!!!!!!   REMEMBER! NEVER NEVER NEVER WEAR THE SAME PAD FOR MORE THAN 3 HOURS!!!!   SO yes, please pass on this message to as many women as possible and  save lives!!!!!!!!!!     Joan Ann Shikhule(M) 0404 212 603(F) 02 9899 6048

3) Cotton Ear Buds… (Must read it)

Please do not show sympathy to people selling buds on roadside or at
Signals….. Just wanted to warn you people not to buy those packs of ear
buds you get at the roadside. It's made from cotton that has already
been used in hospitals.They take all the dirty, blood and pus filled
cotton, wash it, bleach it and use it to make ear buds. So, unless you
want to become the first person in the world to get Herpes Zoster Oticus
(a viral infection of the inner, middle, and external ear) of the ear and
that too from a cotton bud, DON'T BUY THEM!

4) Don't eat Mentos before or after drinking Coke or Pepsi coz the person
will die immediately as the mixture becomes cyanide.. Please fwd to whom
u care

5) Don't put your mobile closer to your ears until the recipient answers,
Because directly after dialing, the mobile phone would use it's maximum
signaling power, which is: 2watts = 33dbi. Please Be Careful. Please
use left ear while using cell (mobile), because if you use the right one
it may affect brain directly. This is a true fact from Apollo medical

Our Life Cannot always be full of HAPPINESS… But it can always be full
of LOVE!

No one is born happy…
But all of us are born with the ability to create happiness…

So always, stay happy & make others happy…

plastic bottled water

13 Jan 2009 Author dumbo
especially for the summer weather when our cars parked in the hot sun! 



Bottled water in your car…..very dangerous to women!!!!
This is how Sheryl Crow got breast cancer.

S he was on the Ellen show and said this same exact thing.

This has been identified as the most common cause of the high levels of breast cancer, especially in  Australia  .

A friend's mother was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.

The Doctor told her: women should not drink bottled water that has been left in a car.

The doctor said that the heat and the plastic of the bottle have certain chemicals that can lead to breast cancer.

So please be careful and do not drink bottled water that has been left in a car, and, pass this on to all the women in your life.

This information is the kind we need to know and be aware and just might save us!!!!

The heat causes toxins from the plastic to leak into the water and they have found these toxins in breast tissue.

Use a stainless steel Canteen or a glass bottle when you can!!!

Let every one who has a wife/girlfriend and daughter know please.
