Facts about the words of wisdom

Facts about the words of wisdom:

Some of the most significant messages people deliver to one another often come in just three words.

When spoken or conveyed, those statements have the power to forge new friendships, deepen old ones and restore relationships that have cooled. The following three-word phrases can enrich every relationship.

I'LL BE THERE - Being there for another person is the greatest gift we can give. When we are truly present for other people, important things happen to them and to us. We are renewed in love and friendship. We are restored emotionally and spiritually. 'Being there' is at the very very core of civility.

MISS YOU - Perhaps more relationships could be salvaged and strengthened if couples simply and sincerely said to each other, "I miss you." This powerful affirmation tells partners they are wanted, needed, desired and loved.

I RESPECT YOU - Respect is another way of showing love. Respect conveys the feeling that another person is a true equal. It is a powerful way to affirm the importance of a relationship.

MAYBE YOU'RE RIGHT - This phrase is highly effective in diffusing an argument and restoring frayed emotions. The flip side of "maybe you're right" is the humility of admitting "maybe I'm wrong."

PLEASE FORGIVE ME - Many broken relationships could be restored and healed if people would admit their mistakes and ask for forgiveness. All of us are vulnerable to faults, foibles and failures. A man should never be ashamed to own he has been in the wrong, which is but saying, in other words, that he is wiser today than he was yesterday.

I THANK YOU - Gratitude is an exquisite form of courtesy. People who enjoy the companionship of good, close friends are those who don't take daily courtesies for granted. They are quick to thank their friends for their many expressions of kindness. On the other hand, people whose circle of friends is severely constricted often do not have the attitude of gratitude.

COUNT ON ME - "A friend is one who walks in when others walk out," Loyalty is an essential ingredient for true friendship; it is the emotional glue that bonds people. Those who are rich in their relationships tend to be steady and true friends. When troubles come, a good friend is there, indicating "you can count on me."

LET ME HELP - The best of friends see a need and try to fill it. When they spot a hurt they do what they can to heal it. Without being asked, they pitch in and help.

I UNDERSTAND YOU - People become closer and enjoy each other more if they feel the other person accepts and understands them. Letting others know in so many little ways that you understand him or her is one of the most powerful tools for healing your relationship.I suppose the 3 little words that U were expecting to see have to be reserved for those who are special; that is I LOVE YOU.

Why did Jayalalitha have a Heart attack ?

There is a popular story saying that wherever you go, you will find at least one Rajinikanth fan.
Here is an interesting new story.

Rajinikanth was bragging to Jayalalitha one day,

"You know, I know everyone there is to know.

Just name someone, anyone, and I know them.

"Tired of his boasting, Jayalalitha called his bluff,

"OK, Rajini how about Jennifer Lopez?"

"Sure, yes, Jen and I are old friends, and I can prove it" Rajini said.

So Rajini and Jayalalitha fly out to Hollywood and knock on Jennifer Lopez's door, and sure enough, Jennifer Lopez & Marc Anthony shouts"Thalaiva! Great to see you! You and your friend come right in and join me for lunch!".

Although impressed, Jayalalitha is still skeptical.After they leave Lopez's house, she tells Rajini that she thinks Rajini knowing JLO was just lucky.

"No, no, just name anyone else" Rajini says.

"President Bush", Jayalalitha quickly retorts.

"Yes", Rajini says, "I know him, let's fly out to Washington".

And off they go.

At the White House, Bush spots Rajini on the tour and motions him , saying,

"Rajini, what a surprise, I was just on my way to a meeting, but you and your friend come on in and let's have a cup of coffee first and catch up".

Well, Jayalalitha is very shaken by now, but still not totally convinced.

After they leave the White House grounds, he implores her to name anyone else.

"The Pope," Jayalalitha replies.

"Sure!" says Rajini, "My folks are from Germany and I've known the Pope a long time".

So off they fly to Rome.

Rajini and Jayalalitha are assembled with the masses in Vatican Square when Rajini says, "This will never work.

I can't catch the Pope's eye among all these people.

Tell you what, I know all the guards so let me just go upstairs and I'll come out on the balcony with the Pope."

And he disappears into the crowd headed toward the Vatican.

Sure enough, half an hour later Rajini emerges with the Pope on the balcony..But by the time Rajini returns, he finds that Jayalalitha had a Heart attack and is surrounded by paramedics.

Working his way to Jayalalitha's side, Rajini asks her, "What happened?"

Jayalalitha looks up and says,

"I was doing fine until you and the Pope came out on the balcony and the man next to me said,'Who's that on the balcony with Rajini?' "

Newton - The Father of Physics committed suicide

Newton - The Father of Physics committed suicide, you know why?Here are the reasons:

Once he came to India and He watched a few Tamil movies and had his head spinning. He was convinced that all his logics and laws in physics were just a huge pile of junk and apologized for everything he had done. In the movie of Rajanikanth, Newton was confused to such an extentthat he went paranoid. Here are a few scenes:

1) Rajanikanth has a Brain Tumor which, according to the doctors can't be cured and his death is imminent. In one of the fights, our greatRajanikanth is shot in the head. To everybody's surprise, the bulletpasses through his ears taking away the tumor along with it and he iscured. Long Live Rajanikanth!

2) In one of the movies, Rajanikanth is confronted with 3 gangsters.Rajanikanth has a gun but unfortunately only one bullet. Guess, whathe does....... He holds a knife in his hand and throws at the middle gangster & shoots the bullet towards the knife. The knife cuts thebullet into 2 pieces and kills both the gangsters on each side of themiddle gangster & the knife kills the middle one.

3) Rajanikanth is chased by a gangster. Rajanikanth has a revolver but he has no bullets in it. Guess what he does. Nah not even in yourremotest imaginations. He waits for the gangster to shoot. As soon asthe gangster shoots, Rajanikanth opens the bullet compartment of hisrevolver and catches the bullet. Then, he closes the bullet compartment and fires his gun. Bang... And the gangster dies....

This was too much for our Newton to take and he was completely shakenand he decided to go back. But he happened to see a movie for one lasttime! and thought that at least one movie will follow his theory ofphysics. The whole movie goes fine and Newton is happy that all in theworld hasn't changed.

Oops not so fast.

The Climax finally arrives.

Rajanikanth gets to know that the villain is on the other side of a very high wall. So high that Rajanikanthcan't jump even if he tries like one of those superman techniques thatour heroes normally use. Rajanikanth has to desperately kill the villain because its the climax. (Newton dada is smiling since it is virtually impossible). Rajanikanth suddenly pulls two guns from hispocket (Probably a backup). He throws one gun in the air and when the gun has reached the height of the wall, he shoots at the trigger ofthe first gun in air, with his second gun. Now the first gun fires off and the villain is dead.

Newton commits Suicide.

May his soul rest in peace.

Chandi Chowk 2 China: Stephen Chow meets Bollywood Drama

In simple words, this movie wasn't so bad, it was watchable. People gave it scathing reviews and ended up comparing it with blockbusters from the past like sholay and seeta aur geeta and even kung fu panda. Oh come on, get a life. There have been hundreds and thousands of movies made that every movie seems like, is inspired by or is based on another movie anyway. Although this movie seemed like something Stephen Chow would do(see Kung Fu Hustle, Shaolin Soccer). Actually I think he might have given justice to the movie and would have made it 10X better.

Akshay Kumar was alrite. He's already mastered being an idiot so nothing new, nothing exciting, Yawn.. moving on Mithun was a surprise, well not really but he had made a good impression on the movie. Deepika was the typical babe of the movie, women should seriously get good roles in Indian movies or just turn down these masala roles, but she did a way better job in this movie than in BAH or OSO. Ranvir delivered. People of the chinese place were a bit overplayed but i guess it was part of the script. The villain, Hojo(whatever the spelling) was okay, so-so. Officer Chang was really good though. I didn't expect any breakthrough performances from anyone anyway.

Cinematography was okay, the script was okay too, some dialogs fell short though like the "yahan mera kaccha fat raha hai, aur tumhe kuch aacha nahi lagra ha" (the writers were clearly on crack). Location was typical kung fu movie location. In short not that great but bearable.

For a country[India] that can't seem to get enough of Kung Fu(HBO in india plays kung fu movies all the time, its so nauseating), this movie got a really cold reception. I think the ff should take the blame:
1. Heavy promotion as a comedy flick, which doesn't really deliver.
2. Tried, tested and overused formula of a nobody becoming the hero at the end.
3. People are getting bored of seeing Akshay Kumar in the same role again n again.
4. People are getting bored of Akshay Kumar period.
5. The key comedy and action scenes were already shown in trailers. I had this same problem with Shrek 2, they had shown all the funny comedy scenes in the trailers that I couldn't enjoy them in the movie per se.
6. A very predictable storyline. Obviously this was a bummer. I mean its a Warner Bros project, you expect something huge, but this movie fell short.
7. Ghajini has left people more inclined to viscious-mind boggling action sequences.
8. The promos had raised the movie-goers expectations way higher than they should have.
9. The director. :D

To enjoy it fully I recommend you to try dodging all spoilers, reviews (scathing ones to be specific) and trailers. No expectations. It's not a no brainer, bring your brain with you but leave your i-have-an-opinion-about-everything-attitude at home or just wait for it to be shown on cable, that way you won't be disappointed...:D

One young man went for an IAS Interview."When did India get independence?" He was asked. "The efforts began a few years earlier and final result was in 1947" He replied."Who was responsible for our independence?""There were so many. Whom to mention? If I name one, it will be a injustice to another." He replied."Is corruption the number one enemy in our country?""Some research is going on the subject and I can answer with certainly only after seeing the report" He replied.The interview board was very pleased with his original and thoughtful answers and asked him not to reveal the questions to others, since they were planning to ask the same questions. When he went out naturally others were curious to know what was asked. He politely declined, but Santa would not leave him. "Ok, dont tell me the questions, but at least tell me the answers" he pleaded, and our friend obliged.Then it was the turn of this Santa. When he went inside, since his resume was slightly illegible, the board member asked him." By the way, what is your date of birth?"He replied, "The effort began a few years earlier and final result was in 1947."Somewhat puzzled, they asked another clarification. "What is your fathers name?"He replied, "There were so many. Whom to mention". If I name one, it will be injustice to another".The interviewer was incensed."Hey! Are you mad or what?"He replied. "Some research is going on the subject. I can answer with certainty only after seeing the report."
