On Patents

Hi,
Well, once in a while I get myself crazed with some particular topic. This time, it was the
turn of Patents. I have collected some data; and here is some part of it. Hope you find it
informative and perhaps, even useful.

Yours,
Gautam.

******************************************************************************

Understanding Patents

Brief Definition: A patent is a grant of a property right by the government to the inventor to
exclude others from making, using or selling the invention. Patents differ significantly from
copyrights and trademarks. All patents must be "maintained" by paying a fee to the Patent &
Trademark Office at certain intervals. Failing this, patent expires and you lose exclusive rights to
invention.

Three Categories
In the U.S., according to the current patent law, the US Patent & Trademark Office grants utility
patents and plant patents last for 20 years; and design patents that last for 14 years.
•Utility Patents apply to new and useful processes, machines, manufactures, compositions of
matter, or any new and useful improvement of one of these. Generally speaking, if your invention
does something, you should apply for a utility patent. Traditionally, utility patents have been
divided into three basic types: mechanical, electrical, and chemical. (Pharmaceutical patents are a
special case of chemical patents.)
•Design Patents apply to new, original, and ornamental design for an article or manufacture. For
ex, consider the original Macintosh computer. The plastic shell that covers all working parts is
covered by a design patent, while many of the working parts it hides are covered by utility
patents.
•Plant Patents are granted to any person who has invented or discovered and asexually
reproduced any distinct and new variety of plant, including cultivated sports, mutants, hybrids,
and newly found seedlings, other than tuber-propogated plant or a plant found in an uncultivated
state.

Three Criteria
To receive a patent the invention must meet at least the following three criteria.
Usefulness
Anyone who invents or discovers any new and useful process, machine, manufacture,
compositions of matter, or any new and useful improvement of one of these can receive a utility
patent.
Novelty
Your patent must, of course, be novel. That is, if the invention has been known of or described in
a printed publication somewhere before you invented it, or if it has been patented or described
more than one year prior to your patent application, you can't get a patent.

-4-
(Non)-obviousness
A further stipulation of novelty refers to obviousness. Even if what you want to patent is not
exactly described in published information, and even if you have created something with one or
more differences from the most nearly similar thing known, the Patent & Trademark Office might
still refuse your claims if it thinks those differences obvious. For instance, changes in materials
or changes in size don't usually count for much.

Patents vs. Trade Secrets


A patent is a legally recognized monopoly which the government grants in exchange for
disclosure of how to make and use an invention. A trade secret is something which confers a
business advantage, is not generally known, and that the owner of the trade secret takes steps to
maintain as a secret. Tension frequently exists between the options of keeping an invention a
trade secret or filing a patent application which discloses the invention. Using a trade secret may
eliminate any possibility of ever being able to patent an invention. On the other hand, the
publication of a patent destroys any trade secrets which it discloses. Usually, however, the
decision requires balancing various commercial, business, and legal factors. Because of the
disclosure requirements of patents and the secrecy requirements of trade secrets, these two forms
of intellectual property usually cannot be maintained for any one particular technology. A choice
either to patent or to maintain as a trade secret must be made.

Advantages of Patents
In at least two situations, patents are a clear choice over trade secrets. A trade secret is of no use
to protect a product which can be reverse engineered. In this situation, a patent is the only option.
Similarly, trade secrets are generally of little use when dealing with an invention that is likely to
be independently invented by another.
For one thing, patents have a firm duration. Trade secret protection can be lost overnight if the
secret is publicly disclosed, even if the disclosure was not intentional. Second, once a patent
application is filed, the information which is in the application can be freely disclosed without
loss of proprietary rights. Obviously, trade secrets cannot be freely disclosed and still maintained
as a secret. Third, for technology which is to be licensed out, a licensee may be more willing to
pay for technology that is patented. Fourth, the decision to file a patent application is not
irrevocable. The act of filing a patent application does not result in loss of trade secret rights.

Advantages of Trade Secrets


In at least two situations, the decision is clearly in favor of trade secrets. Trade secrets are the
only option when the secret covers something that is not patentable. This occurs when the trade
secret concerns things like customer lists, business methods, or sources of supply. This also
occurs when something that would otherwise have been patentable has been for sale or was
publicly used for more than one year. Another example is when the trade secret involves
something that is known. For example, if several different methods are known to make a product
and a company uses one particular method to its advantage, the undisclosed use of the method
can be a trade secret, although it is clearly not patentable.
A second clear answer in favor of trade secrets is when the advantage due to the ownership of the
technology is of very short duration. If the major competitive advantage is by being "first-to-
market" or if the technology will be obsolete in less time than it would take for a patent to issue,
then a patent is of little or no use. Trade secrets also have an advantage because they can
potentially last forever. A classic example is the formula for Coca-Cola, which cannot be reverse
engineered. If the formula had been patented when it was first used in 1886, the formula would
have been in the public domain a long time ago and would now be free to be copied by anyone.
However, by maintaining the formula as a trade secret for over one hundred years, Coca-Cola has
continued to dominate the world wide soft drink industry. Therefore, trade secrets may be

-5-
preferred over patents for technologies which preserve their competitive advantage for longer
than the term of a patent. A further advantage of trade secrets over patents is that there are no
official prosecution costs or maintenance fees in order to establish a trade secret or to keep it in
force. Patenting costs may range from $15,000 to $30,000 or more. These costs are avoided if an
invention is maintained as a trade secret.

Conclusion
Whether to seek patent protection or to maintain an invention as a trade secret is a decision
which must be considered on an individual case basis by examining the specific facts related to
the case. Sometimes, the decision is evident. If an invention can be reverse engineered or
independently developed, if there is a need to disseminate information about the invention, or if
the invention is a technology for which a licensee will only pay if it is patented, then the choice is
clearly in favor of patents. On the other hand, if the secret is not patentable, if it provides an
advantage which is of a shorter duration than the time that it would take to obtain a patent, or if
the secret will be valuable for a very long time and it can be maintained as a trade secret during
that time, then the choice is clearly in favor of trade secrets.

International Patent Protection


Patent protection granted to an inventor by a government is only valid in the country where the
inventor requested it. The rights do not extend beyond that country. When you wish to obtain
patent protection for the same invention in other country, you must file an application in each of
them separately.

World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)


The WIPO is one of the 16 specialized agencies of the United Nations and has its
intergovernmental organization with headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. Its main mission is to
promote the protection of intellectual property throughout the world through cooperation among
nations. (Intellectual property includes inventions, trademarks, industrial designs, and
copyrights.)

India's Contribution To Mathematics


INVENTION OF GEOMETRY AND TRIGONOMETRY:
**************************************************************
The word 'Geometry' has emerged from the Indian word 'Gyaamiti' which means measuring the
earth. The word 'Trigonometry' is similar to the word 'Trilonmiti' meaning measuring triangular
form. Euclid is credited with the invention of Geometry, while the concept of Geometry in India
emerged 6000 BCE from the practice of making Vedic Fire Altars in square, rectangular, and
trapezoidal shapes.
ZERO AND DECIMAL SYSTEM
**************************************
Zero was invented in India without which the modern world cannot function. The words 'Aditi'
(infinite) and 'Kham' (Zero) are found in the Vedic literature. The beginning of Decimal System
can be found in the Rig Veda (6500 BCE) and other Vedas. Terms like 'Dasa' (ten), 'Sata' (100),
Sahasra (1000), 'Ayuta' (10,000) etc. have been used in the Vedic literature. The number of
'Parardha' (equal to a modern Trillion- 10 ) is mentioned in Yajurveda (17.2). La Place said: "It
was India that gave us the ingenious method of expressing all numbers by means of ten symbols
(decimal system).. a profound and important idea which escaped the genius of Archimedes and
Apollonius, two greatest men produced by antiquity." The highest prefix used in today's math for
raising 10 to a power is 'D'- 10 to the power of 30 (from the Greek 'Decca'). As early as 100 BCE,
the Indian mathematicians had exact names for figures up to 10 to the power of 53. In
'Anuyogdwar Sutra' written in 100 BCE, one numerical is raised as high as 10 to the power of
140. The American mathematician and historian of science, A. Seidenberg has established that
the mathematics of both Old Babylonia (1900-1750 BCE) and the Egyptian Middle Kingdom
(2100-1800 BCE) must have derived their mathematics from the ancient Indian Vedic
Sulbasutras.
BINARY NUMBERS IN INDIAN ANTIQUITY:
***************************************************
B. Van Nooten (Dept. of South and SE Asian Studies, Univ. of California, Berkeley) writing on
Indian mathematics said: "I have found good reason to believe that the rudiments of binary
calculation were discovered in India well in advance of their discovery by the German
philosopher Gottfried Leibniz in 1695." He further said: "I have tried to show that Pingala used
binary notation to classify metrical verses as early as the second or third century A.D. He also
knew how to convert that binary notation to a decimal notation and vice versa." Nooten also
commented that "He (Pingala) may well have been the originator of the system."
Weights found at Mohenjo-Daro, Harappa, and other sites show a remarkable accuracy and
follow a binary system: 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, and up to 12,800 units.
THE PYTHAGOREAN THEOREM:
****************************************
The so-called Pythagorean Theorem - the square of the hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle is
equal to the sum of the square of the other two sides- which was worked out earlier by the Indian
mathematician, Baudhayana in 'Baudhayana Sulba Sutra', a treatise dating back to approx. 3000
BCE. He described it as "the area produced by the diagonal of a rectangular is equal to the sum of
the area produced by it on two sides." Harappan archaeology confirms that the so called
Pythagorean theorem was known and applied as early as 3000 BCE. Several massive structures
and lengthy streets of the town were laid out using perfect perpendicular and parallel lines.

-7-
THE VALUE OF Pi:
**********************
The ration of the circumference to the diameter of a circle is known as 'Pi', which gives its value
as 3.14592657932. The old Sanskrit text of 'Baudhayana Sulbha Sutra' of 3000 BCE mentions
this ratio as approx. equal to 3. Aryabhatta in 499 BCE worked out the value of Pi to the 4th
decimal place, as 3(177/1250) = 3.1416. Centuries later, in 825 AD, the Arab mathematician,
Mohammed Ibna Musa said that this value 62832/20000 has been given by the Hindus.

MEASUREMENT OF TIME:
********************************
In 'Surya Siddhanta', Bhaskaracharya (1500 years ago) calculates the time for the earth to orbit
the Sun to 9 decimal places (365.258756484). The modern accepted measurement is 365.2596
days. Between Bhaskaracharya's ancient measurement and the modern measurement, the
difference is only 0.00085 days (0.0002%). India has given the world the idea of the smallest and
the largest measure of time, from Krati (34,000th of a second) to Kalpa (4.32 billion years). Other
measurements of time include Truti (300th of a second), Vipal (two-fifths of a second), Pal (24
seconds), Ghasi (24 minutes), Hora (hour), Divas (day), Saptah (week), Maas (month), Rutu
(season), Varsha (year), Shataabada (Century), Sahasraabada (Millenium), and Yug (432
Millenia), and Mahayug (4,320,000 years).
ASTRONOMY:
*****************
In India the first references to the astronomy are to be found in the Rig Veda which dates back to
around 6500 BCE. The five planets are mentioned in the Rig Veda (1105.10) and Brhaspati
(Jupiter) is referred in RV 4.50.4 and Vena (Venus) is mentioned in RV 10.123.
Ved Vyasa is considered to be a great teacher of Astronomy. Prof. S.Kak in his research book
'The Astronomical Code of the Rig Veda' has clearly shown the composition of the Rig Veda
based on astronomy. The ancient Indian astronomers had calculated the circumference of the
Earth to be 5000 Yojanas (one Yojana = 7.2 KMs) which is equivalent to 36000 Kms. This is
quite close to the actual circumference known today. The great Indian astronomer, Aryabhata
propounded the Heliocentric Theory of Gravitation, this predating Copernicus by almost one
thousand years. Aryabhata Magnum Opus, the Aryabhata was translated into Latin in the 13th
Century from which the European mathematicians got to know methods for calculating the
areas of triangles, volumes of spheres as well as square and cube roots. Aryabhata stated that the
Earth revolves around the Sun using the following specific words: "Just as a person travelling in a
boat feels that the trees on the bank are moving, people on the earth feel that the Sun is moving."
In his treatise "Aryabhateem" he clearly states that our earth is round, rotates on its axis, orbits
the Sun and is suspended in space."
Law of Gravity:
*****************
The law of gravity was known to the ancient Indian astronomer, Bhaskaracharya. In his "Surya
Siddhanta" he notes, "Object fall on earth due to force of attraction by the Earth. Therefore, the
earth, planets, constellations, Moon and Sun are held in orbit by this attraction." It was not until
the late 17th Century (in 1687), 1200 years later, Sir Isaac Newton was given the credit for
discovering (i.e. re-discovering) the Law of Gravity.

Some quotes:
Arya bhatta's "the length of a solar year as 365.358 days were also extremely accurate by the
standards of the next thousand years". Astronomical time spans: The notion of of time spans that
are truly gigantic by modern standards are rarely found in ancient civilizations as the notion of
large number is rare commodity. Apart from the peoples of the Mayan civilization, the ancient
Hindus appear to be the only people who even thought beyond a few thousand years. In the famed
book Cosmos, physicist-astronomer-teacher Carl Sagan writes "... The dates on Mayan
inscriptions also range deep into the past and occasionally far into the future. One inscription
refers to a time more than a million years ago and another perhaps refers to events of 400 million
years ago, ... The events memorialized may be mythical, but the time scales are pridigious".
Hindu scriptures refer to time scales that vary from ordinary earth day and night to the day and
night of the Brahma that are a few billion earth years long. Sagan continues, "A millennium
before Europeans were wiling to divest themselves of the Biblical idea that the world was a few
thousand years old, the Mayans were thinking of millions and the Hindus billions"
Modern adaptations of ancient Hindu theories
A brand new theory -- that of a "CYCLIC MODEL", developed by Princeton University's Paul
Steinhardt and Cambridge University's Neil Turok, made its highest-profile appearance yet in
April 2002, on Science Express, the Web site for the journal Science. But past incarnations of the
idea have been hotly debated within the cosmological community from 2001. A jist of the claims
can be found here. The PDF preprint of the entire paper can be downloaded from here. The Hindu
belief that the Universe has no beginning or end, but follows a cosmic creation and dissolution
can be found here. Zero also reached eastwards from India to China, where Chinese scholars Chin
Chiu-Shao and Chu Shih-Chieh made use of the same symbol O for a places-based system in the
12th and 13th centuries respectively. From the time of Han (206 to 220 BC), Chinese scholars
used a place-value system called the suan zi ("calculation using rods") that was a regular system
that used horizontal and vertical lines that used to denote the nine numerals. Ifrah says that "Thus
one could be forgiven for assuming that following the links established between India and China
at the beginning of the beginning of the first millennium BC, Indian scholars were influenced by
Chinese mathematicians to create their own system in an imitation of the Chinese counting
method." [See 4] He goes on to argue that in suan zi, the zero appeared at a much later date. Thus
the notion of zero helps one to recognize the originality of the Indian mathematicians vis-a-vis
their Chinese counterparts. Ifra also establishes that the Chinese scholars overcame the
difficulties the absence of zeros caused in trying to represent numbers like 1,270,000
often either using characters of their ordinary counting system (a non-positional system that did
not require the use of a zero) or simply by empty spaces. After providing a sequence of clues, [in
4], Ifrah continues "It was only after the eighth century BC, and doubtless due to the influence of
the Indian Buddhist missionaries, that Chinese mathematicians introduced the use of zero in the
form of a little circle or dot (signs that originated in India),...".
Zero reached Europe in the twelfth century when Adelard of Bath translated al-Khwarizmi's
works into Latin [See 1]. Fibonacci was one of the main mathematicians who accepted the
concepts of zero in Europe. (Leonardo Da Vinci has acknowledged that he found it difficult to
understand the concept of zero.) However, it was not until the 17th century that zero found
widespread acceptance through a lot of resistance.

Rs.2,50,000 crore crores! So, as the world saves for US, Americans spend freely. Today, to keep
the US consumption going, that is for the US economy to work, other countries have to remit
$180 billion every quarter, that is $2 billion a day, to the US! Otherwise the US economy would
go for a six. So will the global economy. The result will be no different if US consumers begin
consuming less. A Chinese economist asked a neat question.

In fact they use their credit cards to spend their future income. That the US spends is what makes
it attractive to export to the US.
> >> > So, US imports more than what it exports year after year. The result. The world is
dependent on US consumption for its growth. By its deepening culture of consumption, the US
has habituated the world to feed on US consumption. But as the US needs money to finance its
consumption, the world provides the money. It's like a shopkeeper providing the money to a
customer so that the customer keeps buying from the shop.
The customer > > will not buy, the shop won't have business, unless the shopkeeper funds him.
The US is like the lucky customer. And the world is like the helpless shopkeeper financier. Who
is America's biggest shopkeeper financier? Japan. Yet it is Japan which is regarded as weak.
Modern economists complain that Japanese do not spend, so they do not grow. To force the
Japanese to spend, the Japanese government exerted itself. Reduced the savings rates, even
charged the savers. Even then the Japanese did not spend. Their traditional postal savings alone
is over $1.2billions. that is. Rs.60 lakh crores, about three times the GDP of India. Thus, savings,
far from being the strength of Japan, has become its pain. What is the lesson? That is, a nation

- 10 -
cannot grow unless the people spend, not save. Not just spend, but borrow and spend.
> >> Dr.Jagdish Bhagwati, the famous Indain-born economist in the US, told Dr.Manmohan
Singh that Indians wastefully save. Ask them to spend, he said. On imported cars and, seriously,
even on cosmetics! This, he Counseled, will put India on a growth curve. But like Japanese we
too are not obliging. Modernists may not, but one who has read the Mahabharatha will, know. A
Rishi by name Charuvaka gave the same advice when Pandavas were around, which modern
economists are giving today. He told the people to spend and be happy, if need be by borrowing.
No need to repay, if you cannot, he counseled. No sin would attach, he assured.
> > Fortunately his advice was rejected by us thousands of years back. That is why perhaps we
are alive as a nation. Our old companions are in archives today. Now we have the very same
advice. That is saving as sin, and spending as virtue.
> > This is central to neo-economics. Caution. Before you follow these neo-Charuvakas, get
some fools to save so that you can borrow from them and spend, after you exhaust your savings.
This is what US has successfully done in last two decades.

Narayan Murthy On Leadership

Narayana Murthy, The author is Chairman and Chief Mentor, Infosys Technologies..
A leader is an agent of change, and progress is about change.
In the words of Robert F Kennedy, 'Progress is a nice word; but change is its motivator.'

Leadership is about raising the aspirations of followers and enthusing people with a desire to
reach for the stars. For instance, Mahatma Gandhi created a vision for independence in India and
raised the aspirations of our people. Leadership is about making people say, 'I will walk on water
for you.' It is about creating a worthy dream and helping people achieve it.
Robert Kennedy, summed up leadership best when he said, 'Others see things as they are and
wonder why; I see them as they are not and say why not?'

Adversity
A leader has to raise the confidence of followers. He should make them understand that tough
times are part of life and that they will come out better at the end of it. He has to sustain their
hope, and their energy levels to handle the difficult days. There is no better example of this than
Winston Churchill. His courageous leadership as prime minister for Great Britain successfully led
the British people from the brink of defeat during World War II. He raised his people's hopes
with the words, 'These are not dark days; these are great days -- the greatest days our country has
ever lived.'
Never is strong leadership more needed than in a crisis.
In the words of Seneca, the Greek philosopher, 'Fire is the test of gold; adversity, of strong men.'

Values
The leader has to create hope. He has to create a plausible story about a better future for the
organisation: everyone should be able to see the rainbow and catch a part of it. This requires
creating trust in people. And to create trust, the leader has to subscribe to a value system: a
protocol for behavior that enhances the confidence, commitment and enthusiasm of the people.
Compliance to a value system creates the environment for people to have high aspirations, self
esteem, belief in fundamental values, confidence in the future and the enthusiasm necessary to
take up apparently difficult tasks. Leaders have to walk the talk and demonstrate their

- 11 -
commitment to a value system. As Mahatma Gandhi said, 'We must become the change we want
to see in the world.' Leaders have to prove their belief in sacrifice and hard work. Such behavior
will enthuse the employees to make bigger sacrifices. It will help win the team's confidence, help
leaders become credible, and help create trust in their ideas.

Enhancing trust
Trust and confidence can only exist where there is a premium on transparency. The leader has to
create an environment where each person feels secure enough to be able to disclose his or her
mistakes, and resolves to improve.
Investors respect such organisations. Investors understand that the business will have good times
and bad times. What they want you to do is to level with them at all times. They want you to
disclose bad news on a proactive basis. At Infosys, our philosophy has always been, 'When in
doubt, disclose.'

Governance
Good corporate governance is about maximising shareholder value on a sustainable basis while
ensuring fairness to all stakeholders: customers, vendor-partners, investors, employees,
government and society. A successful organisation tides over many downturns. The best index of
success is its longevity. This is predicated on adhering to the finest levels of corporate
governance. At Infosys, we have consistently adopted transparency and disclosure standards even
before law mandated it. In 1995, Infosys suffered losses in the secondary market. Under Indian
GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles), we were not required to make this information
public. Nevertheless, we published this information in our annual report.

Fearless environment
Transparency about the organisation's operations should be accompanied by an open environment
inside the organisation. You have to create an environment where any employee can disagree
with you without fear of reprisal. In such a case, everyone makes suggestions for the common
good. In the end everyone will be better off. On the other hand, at Enron, the CFO was running an
empire where people were afraid to speak. In some other cases, the whistle blowers have been
harassed and thrown out of the company.

Managerial remuneration
We have gone towards excessive salaries and options for senior management staff. At one
company, the CEO's employment contract not only set out the model of the Mercedes the
company would buy him, but also promised a monthly first-class air ticket for his mother, along
with a cash bonus of $10 million and other benefits. Not surprisingly, this company has already
filed for bankruptcy.
Managerial remuneration should be based on three principles:
Fairness with respect to the compensation of other employees;
Transparency with respect to shareholders and employees;
Accountability with respect to linking compensation with corporate performance.
Thus, the compensation should have a fixed component and a variable component. The variable
component should be linked to achieving long-term objectives of the firm. Senior management
should swim or sink with the fortunes of the company.
Senior management compensation should be reviewed by the compensation committee of the
board, which should consist only of independent directors. Further, this should be approved by
the shareholders.
I've been asked, 'How can I ask for limits on senior management compensation when I have made
millions myself?'

- 12 -
A fair question with a straightforward answer: two systems are at play here.
One is that of the promoter, the risk taker and the capital markets;
and the other is that of professional management and compensation structures.
One cannot mix these two distinct systems, otherwise entrepreneurship will be stifled, and no new
companies will come up, no progress can take place. At the same time, there has to be fairness in
compensation: there cannot be huge differences between the top most and the bottom rung of the
ladder within an organisation.

PSPD model
A well run organisation embraces and practices a sound Predictability-Sustainability-
Profitability-Derisking (we call this the PSPD model at Infosys) model. Indeed, the long-term
success of an organisation depends on having a model that scales up profitably. Further, every
organisation must have a good derisking approach that recognises, measures and mitigates risk
along every dimension.

Integrity
Strong leadership in adverse times helps win the trust of the stakeholders, making it more likely
that they will stand by you in your hour of need. As leaders who dream of growth and progress,
integrity is your most wanted attribute.
Lead your teams to fight for the truth and never compromise on your values. I am confident that
our corporate leaders, through honest and desirable behaviour, will reap long-term benefits for
their stakeholders.
Two mottos
In conclusion, keep in mind two Sanskrit sentences:
Sathyannasti Paro Dharma (there is no dharma greater than adherence to truth);
& Satyameva jayate (truth alone triumphs). Let these be your motto for good corporate
leadership.
Regards

IIM MBAs: Wealth creators? Wealth chasers?

From the high decibel noise that is being generated about the IIM fee issue, one would think that
the whole country's economy depends on the IIM and their products. How relevant are the IIMs
really, and what exactly is their contribution to the country? Are the IIMs national treasures, or
just private clubs and nose-in-the-air gymkhanas ? Are they doing more harm than good?
The IIMs are in the news <http://www.rediff.com/money/iim04.htm> for the fee cuts in the Post
Graduate Program in Management, popularly known as the MBA.
Some questions on what the IIM MBA is all about:
Does an MBA measure his professional success by how much he earns?
An annual ritual (currently on) in all the IIMs is the great tom-tomming of the pay packets of their
fresh MBA graduates. How many professions have you heard of where so much noise is made of
the starting salary of graduates?
If this is how an IIM graduate's success is measured at the start of his career, no wonder he uses
money as the measure of his success throughout his career. And this is what his institute has
taught him. By this yardstick, if a company is doing badly and its low-paid manager turns it
around and makes it profitable, he is less successful than a highly paid manager of an already
successful company.
If an IIM MBA is ever in the news, it is for how much he earns. Have you ever seen a newspaper
headline like 'IIM MBA manages difficult turnaround of sinking company'?

- 13 -
Can only engineers manage?
For some strange reason, IIM entrance tests are designed so that you have a greater chance of
getting through if you an engineer. Typically, 80% of entrants to IIMs are engineers. Does this
mean only engineers can manage? What if you are a lawyer wanting to manage your law firm
better, or a journalist wanting to manage your newspaper better, or a biochemist wanting to
manage your R&D company better? The IIMs have already decided that you are unfit to be a
manager. IIM-B's web site on the contrary says 'candidates from diverse backgrounds are
selected.'
The MBA course is either designed to impart business skills to engineers, or the entrance tests are
flawed. If it is the former, why not make an engineering degree mandatory for admission? If it is
the latter, the tests must be redesigned.

Why do you need engineers to sell shampoo or manage mutual funds?


Typically, 80% IIM entrants are engineers, but only 10% join engineering companies. 90% sell
consumer products, manage mutual funds, or join IT companies.
When they do their engineering courses, these people obviously have no intention of becoming
engineers. They are using their engineering education merely to give them an edge over other
competitors at the IIM entrance examination. Incidentally, 30% of them are from IITs and being
an IIT-IIM graduate is considered to be a badge of honor.
The world over, engineers do an MBA to acquire skills to manage their engineering industry
better, not to switch to alternate high paying careers.

If the army promotes a raw NDA graduate as a general will you have any faith in it?
The NDA teaches a person the theory of fighting and managing the army. After this he typically
puts in about 35 years actual fighting on the front, logistics management, man management, etc
before he can become a general.
If you have started work at the bottom rung in a company (that's if you were not fortunate enough
to be the heir to an existing business) you know that it takes a couple of years before you can get
a reasonable grasp of what is going on around you. It can be many more years before you are
good at the job.
Seventy-two percent of IIM-C's graduates in 2004 have no work experience, and 20% have two
years experience. After a one-and-a-half year course, the fresh MBA is thought fit to advise
company presidents on how to run their business. How can you run a business without knowing
what the business is all about?
Exposure can never replace experience.

Complete coverage: The IIMs controversy <http://www.rediff.com/money/iim04.htm>


Does the IIM turn out hares rather than tortoises?
An MBA is never in it for the long haul. He looks for instant personal gains. This is probably the
reason why MBAs prefer to work for consumer products, finance and IT companies. You will
seldom find them in manufacturing; power or telecom industries, where gestation periods are long
and you require perseverance, patience and a long distance vision. The typical tenure of an MBA
in a company is 2 to 3 years, while the gestation periods in the these industries are measured in
decades.

Is an MBA the proverbial rat which deserts the sinking ship?


Every business has cycles, and has its ups and downs. The down cycle does not mean that it is
sinking. It may happen because of external factors like the country's economy. You are unfit to
handle a business if you cannot take the downs with the ups. An MBA is generally known to be a
fair weather friend, joining a company on its rising curve and jumping ship when the going gets
tough. He is trained by the IIM to be self-centric rather than company-centric.

- 14 -
Why should the government subsidise engineers who sell toothpaste?
It is a reasonable assumption to make that an engineer joining an IIM has studied in a government
subsidised college, and the government has spent Rs 400,000 on him for the course (Rs 800,000
if he has studied in an IIT. This means the taxpayer is paying for the engineering education of a
person who has no intention of using his engineering. This definitely is not the intention of
government subsidy of engineering education?

Why don't MBAs join manufacturing companies?


Manufacturing requires technical knowledge, man management and business sense. It requires
dirtying your hands, leading from the front and talking straight. Maybe MBAs are incapable of
this? Typically, less than 5% of IIM graduates get into manufacturing. IIM-A's professed aim, in
its own words: 'It also aims to professionalise some of the vital sectors of India's economy such as
agriculture, education, health, transportation, population control, energy, and public
administration.' How many MBAs do you find in these areas?

Are IIMs turning out wealth creators or wealth chasers?


There are wealth creators, and wealth chasers. A wealth creator has a skill that enables him to
create something. An organization develops around this creation, to produce and sell it and make
money out of it. The creation could be a newspaper, an automobile, medical services or a
thousand other things. The creator must be a highly skilled as a journalist, an automobile
engineer, a doctor etc. A typical IIM MBA joins the course after 1 or 2 years of experience in
industry. This is not enough to learn a skill to create anything.
This is the reason that you rarely find an MBA entrepreneur. Someone else always has to create
an organisation, which the MBA is then happy to manage. IIMs are not about creating
entrepreneurs, individuals with a passion for ideas, for risk taking.
Just 4 the of 209 IIM-B graduates this year plan to start their own enterprises or join their family
businesses. Impressed?

Are IIMs creating managers or leaders?


A leader sets the direction, a manager follows. A manager takes care of where you are. A leader
takes you to a new place. It is unlikely that you'll see an IIM MBA taking you to a new place. The
professed aim of the IIMs is to create 'world-class business leaders
<http://www.iimb.ernet.in/html/m-frames.jsp?ilink=22&pname=pgp-overview.htm>.' They have
only succeeded in creating business managers, with 'world class' being debatable.
An IIM graduate is unlikely to ever be an Ambani, a Tata or a Birla.

So what are the IIMs all about?


About branding yourself? About getting placed in a high paying job when you graduate? About
converting engineers into non-engineers? About churning out risk-averse job hoppers jumping
from one safe ship to another? Are they about education at all?
The IIMs want autonomy from the government. Autonomy to do what? They do not seem to be
clear about what they want to do.

Thanks & Best Regards,


Prasad R Goswami

How To Choose Good Passwords

From: "Anil Shende" <Anil.Shende@cymbal.com>


Date: (Date Unavailable)
Subject: Good Passwords You Can Remember!

How to pick a good password that is hard to guess or hack and one that you can
remember? That is a dilemma we all face on a frequent basis.

Good Password Characteristics


Good passwords have at least some of the following characteristics:

· They are at least 8 characters long. Generally the longer the password the harder it is to break.
· Good passwords should be a mix of both alpha and numeric characters.
· No words listed in any dictionary should be used. Hackers love this and
even a PC can try thousands of dictionary words in seconds.
· Passwords should be easy to remember so you don’t have to write them
down.

Next, we will look at how to create good passwords that can be remembered.

How to Create Good Passwords You Can Remember

We need good passwords so that they are difficult to break, hack or guess. That way the hacker
will go on to someone else and leave you alone.

Examples are best:


* Random and meaningless character strings or long numbers are hard to break. If you have a
very good memory, so you don't have to write it down, these random strings or numbers make
good passwords if they are at least 6-8 characters long.
Like "abrzxtyn". Problem is even at just 8 characters these strings are hard to remember for most
of us. If you have a very good memory go for it, but don't write it down and don't forget it!

What if you could take a common number that is easy for you to remember and convert it into a
number that is as long as you want and meaningless to anyone else? You can!

* Take two words from the dictionary that are at least 4 characters each. I know I said don't use
words out of a dictionary – hang on! Now reverse the order of the letters and put them back
together. Example – "dump" and "blade" yields "pmud" and "edalb". Now put them together
"pmudedalb". Most of us can remember two words with a little effort.

* Suppose your street address is 2572 some street, USA. Take the reciprocal i.e. 1/x of the
numeric address. 1/2572 = 3.8880248833592534992223950233281e-4. Drop the decimal and
take as many digits as the system will allow for your password. Like the first eight digits -
38880248. All you have to remember is your street address and 1/X. Now even you don't know
your password until you need it! When you are ready to change your password just use the
reciprocal with say, your grandma's phone number.

* Or how about X^2/squareroot(x) where x is a number you can remember like grandma's phone
number. Again drop decimals if need be.

- 16 -
* Oh, by the way since the most of the methods above usually yield long numbersif you need
multiple passwords for systems that require or allow different password lengths just use that same
long number and take the first x numbers depending on the maximum allowed password for the
system.

* What a deal! One number you can remember, one little old formula like 1/x and you have lots
of passwords and even if you have to do division by hand (who does that anymore) you can
always determine the right password.

Ok, now if you really want to drive the hackers nuts:

* Take that number you can remember and convert it to a different number base like binary, or
octal or base 12. Most calculators will handle at least some of these conversions. Take the
imaginary phone number of 2254971. Convert it to binary (base 2) 10001001101. That's 11 digits
and even though it's only 0's and 1's the hacker has to get those 11 digits in exactly the right order
Guessing your phone number does the hacker no good unless he also knows you converted it
to binary or base 2.

* One more example – suppose you pick a number that you can remember and convert it to
base 15 or base 11 or base xx – that number is now C87E66B7. The best of all worlds –
characters and numbers, eight places long and totally meaningless to anyone but you unless you
write it down somewhere.

Now that you have the idea you can create your own methods. Just remember, follow the rules for
good passwords and don't share the methodology or function you used to generate your password.
Even if they know some of your easy numbers it will be very difficult to determine your
password. Most hackers won't waste the time, they will go on to someone else.

Now you have passwords you can remember and that meet all or most of the requirements for
good passwords. Also, be aware of the ways that your password can be attacked - which is
discussed below.

Password Hacks/Attacks
There are 4 basic ways to break a password.

· Any password can be broken given enough time and computer cycles. This is called a brute
force attack. Generally the longer the password the longer it takes to break it!

· Dictionary attacks- The hacker just tries all or many of the words in the dictionary usually
starting with the short common ones like “cat†, “dog†etc.

· Personal attacks – A hacker doesn’t have to know you personally to use this kind of
attack. Just your phone number, name, address etc.

· Insider attacks – someone at work sees your password written on a


piece of paper, sees you type it in, or heaven forbid you give it to someone.
No one can protect you against the last one but you.

We Indians are the wealthiest among all ethnic groups in America, even faring better than the
whites and the natives. There are 3.22 millions of Indians in USA (1.5% of population). YET,

38% of doctors in USA are Indians.


12% scientists in USA are Indians.
36% of NASA scientists are Indians.
34% of Microsoft employees are Indians.
28% of IBM employees are Indians.
17% of INTEL scientists are Indians.
13% of XEROX employees are Indians.
99% of WIPRO employees are Indians

You may know some of the following facts. These facts were recently published in a German
magazine, which deals with WORLD HISTORY FACTS ABOUT INDIA.

01. India never invaded any country in her last 1000 years of history.
02. India invented the Number system. Aryabhatta invented 'zero.'
03. The world's first University was established in Takshila in 700BC. More
than 10,500 students from all over the world studied more than 60 subjects. The University
of Nalanda built in the 4th century BC was one of the greatest achievements of ancient India in
the field of education.
04. According to the Forbes magazine, Sanskrit is the most suitable language for computer
software.
05. Ayurveda is the earliest school of medicine known to humans.
06. Although western media portray modern images of India as poverty striken and
underdeveloped through political corruption, India was once the richest empire on earth.
07. The art of navigation was born in the river Sindh 5000 years ago. The very word
"Navigation" is derived from the Sanskrit word NAVGATIH.
08. The value of pi was first calculated by Budhayana, and he explained the concept of what is
now known as the Pythagorean Theorem. British scholars have last year (1999) officially
published that Budhayan's works dates to the 6th Century, which is long before the European
mathematicians.

- 18 -
09. Algebra, trigonometry and calculus came from India. Quadratic equations were by
Sridharacharya in the 11th Century; the largest numbers the Greeks and the Romans used
were 106 whereas Indians used numbers as big as 1053.
10. According to the Gemmological Institute of America, up until 1896, India was the only
source of diamonds to the world.
11. USA based IEEE has proved what has been a century-old suspicion amongst academics that
the pioneer of wireless communication was Professor Jagdeesh Bose and not Marconi.
12. The earliest reservoir and dam for irrigation was built in Saurashtra.
13. Chess was invented in India.
14. Sushruta is the father of surgery. 2600 years ago he and health scientists of his time
conducted surgeries like caesareans, cataract, fractures and urinary stones.
Usage of anaesthesia was well known in ancient India.
15. When many cultures in the world were only nomadic forest dwellers over
5000 years ago, Indians established Harappan culture in Sindhu Valley (Indus Valley
Civilisation).
16. The place value system, the decimal system was developed in India in 100 BC.

Quotes about India.

We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific
discovery could have been made.
Albert Einstein.

India is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the
grandmother of legend and the great grand mother of tradition.
Mark Twain.

If there is one place on the face of earth where all dreams of living men have found a home from
the very earliest days when man began the dream of existence, it is India.
French scholar Romain Rolland.

India conquered and dominated China culturally for 20 centuries without ever having to send a
single soldier across her border.
Hu Shih.
(Former Chinese ambassador to USA)

ALL OF THE ABOVE IS JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG, THE LIST COULD BE
ENDLESS. BUT,
if we don't see even a glimpse of that great India in the India that we see today, it clearly means
that we are not working up to our potential; and that if we do, we could once again be an ever
shining and inspiring country setting a bright path for rest of the world to follow. I hope you
enjoyed it and work towards the welfare of INDIA.

Say proudly, I AM AN INDIAN.

How To Identify Internet Hoaxes

From: "Tushar" Date: Thu Mar 3, 2005 8:15 am


Subject: Re: DO NOT RE-USE MINERAL WATER BOTTLES
Hello Group,

Internet is a too misleading area, people are always in search to spread sensitive but fake
messages. It is always better to search for more material if you find something really sensitive.
Chances are you will get additional information about the authenticity of the text on net the very
next second you try searching it on <http://www.google.com>

See the following article source:


<http://www.breakthechain.org/exclusives/waterbottles.html>

(11/15/2003) If you believe everything that is forwarded to you via e-mail, you'd think that our
growing dependence on plastics could be setting the stage for a widespread health epidemic.
Here's another 'important warning' that's chock-full of unjustified alarm and misinformation.

SAMPLE CHAIN LETTER TEXT


And I thought that I was being an environmentalist for using my Aboslute bottle for months now.
Darn!
POISONING FROM RE-USE OF PLASTIC BOTTLES

Dear all,
Some of you may be in the habit of using and re-using your disposable water bottles (Wilkins,
Viva, etc), keeping them in your car or at work.
Not a good idea. See any of the following articles and they'll tell you why.

www.algonquinc.on.ca/times/news5.html
<http://www.24hre.com/contenta.cfm?Primary_Cat_ID=7&ARTICLE_ID=5760>

In a nutshell, the plastic (called polyethylene terephthalate or PET) used in these bottles contains
a potentially carcinogenic element (something called diethylhydroxylamine or DEHA). The
bottles are safe for one use only; if you must keep them longer, it should be or no more than a few
days, a week max, and keep them away from heat as well.

Repeated washing and rinsing can cause the plastic to break down and the carcinogens can leach
into the water that YOU are drinking.
Better to invest in water bottles that are really meant for multiple uses.

This is not something we should be scrimping on. Take care.

END CHAIN LETTER TEXT

At first glance, this one appears quite similar to an earlier chain letter, warning against
microwaving food in plastic containers. Like its predecessor, we find this one to be based on little
more than theory and jam-packed with misinterpretations of the facts.

Also like its predecessor, this one has roots in media coverage of one person's unsupported
hypothesis. The idea that reusing plastic bottles can cause compounds in the plastic to break down
into carcinogenic substances comes from a 2001 Master's Thesis by a student at the University of
Idaho. Despite the fact that the thesis was not subject to peer review and, thus, lacking any degree
of scientific authority, several media outlets picked up on it and ran the typical "what-you-don't-
know-can-kill-you" stories.

According to the International Bottled Water Association (IBWA), "DEHA, as mentioned in the
email is neither regulated nor classified as a human carcinogen. Further, DEHA is not inherent in
PET plastic as raw material, byproduct or decomposition product. DEHA has been cleared by
FDA for food contact applications and would not pose a health risk even if present."

The IBWA goes on to suggest that the student's findings could be the result of normal laboratory
contamination: "DEHA is a common plasticizer used in many plastic items, many of which are
found in the lab setting. For this reason, the student's detection (see comment above) is likely to
have been the result of inadvertent lab contamination."

While the Environmental Protection Agency had earlier labeled DEHA a toxic chemical, they
reclassified it due to a lack of evidence.

It is true that many organizations and bottled water companies recommend against reusing their
packaging, but the rationale is far less life-threatening. Rather, they caution that most bottles are
not sufficiently cleaned and dried before refilling to prevent possible bacterial contamination.

Graham Bauer and Jan Martin have nothing to do with this warning other than they received it or
heard the rumor themselves and passed it on, inadvertently adding their identity to the notes. The
possibility of this type of "False Attribution Syndrome," combined with the relative unreliability
of the medium, is why BreakTheChain.org recommends strongly against relying upon or
forwarding health-related information via e-mail chain letters.
Break this chain.

Pi day

(source: <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pi_Day> )
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
There are two days held in honour of the mathematical constant π (Pi
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pi>): Pi Day and Pi Approximation Day.
Pi day March 14 <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/March_14>, written 3/14 in the USA
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USA> date format, is the official day for Pi day derived from the
common three-digit approximation for the number π: 3.14. It is usually celebrated at 1:59 PM (in
recognition of the six-digit approximation: 3.14159). Some, using a twenty-four-hour clock
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/24-hour_clock> rather than a twelve hour clock, say that 1:59 PM
is actually 13:59 and celebrate it at 1:59 AM instead. Parties have been held by mathematics
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mathematics> departments of various schools around the world.
This day has been celebrated in a variety of ways. Groups of people, typically pi clubs, give
thought to the role that the number π has played in their lives and imagine the world without π.
During such an event, pi celebrants may devise alternative values for π, eat pi (pie
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pie>), play pi (piñata <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pi%F1ata>),
or drink pi (piña colada <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pi%F1a_colada>).
The "ultimate" pi day occurred on March 14th, 1592, at 6:54 AM. When written in American-
style date format, this is 3/14/1592 6:54, which corresponts to the ten-digit approximation of pi:
3.141592654. However, considering this was well before any kind of standardized world time
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time> had been established, and the general population, excluding
mathematicians, scholars, etc, had no concept of π, the holiday went unnoticed.
Pi Approximation Day Pi Approximation Day is one of two days: either July 22
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/July_22> (written 22/7 — 22 divided by 7 is an approximation to
π — in some date formats), or April 26 <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/April_26>, the day on
which planet Earth <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth> completes approximately two
Astronomical units <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astronomical_unit>' worth of its annual orbit
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orbit>: on this day the total length of Earth's orbit, divided by the
length already travelled, equals π.

Heisenbug - unpredictable bug

From: "Tushar Joshi" <tusharvjoshi@yahoo.com>


Date: Sat Mar 12, 2005 6:06 pm
Subject: [Info] Heisenbug - unpredictable bug

Heisenbug

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.


Heisenbug is a term used in software programming to describe a computer bug that disappears or
alters its characteristics when it is researched.

A common example are bugs that occur in a release-mode compile of a program but do not occur
when researched under debug-mode, or some bugs caused by a race condition. The name is a pun
on the physics term "Heisenberg Uncertainty principle", which is popularly believed to refer to
the way observers affect the observed in quantum mechanics.

In an interview in ACM Queue vol. 2, no. 8 - November 2004


(http://acmqueue.com/modules.php?name=Content&pa=showpage&pid=233&page=5) Bruce
Lindsay tells of being there when the term was first used and that it was created because
Heisenberg said "the more closely you look at one thing, the less closely can you see something
else."

Origin and history of Marathi. (A very short essay)

Marathi can be traced back far beyond the 10th century. It descends from Sanskrit through Pali,
Maharashtri and Maharashtra - Apabhramsa. A gradual process of change and modification in the
spoken language has led to the rise of the present Marathi. The origin and growth of Marathi
literature is indebted to two important events. The first was the rise of the Jadhava dynasty whose
capital was Devgiri. The Jadhava’s adopted Marathi as the court language and patronized Marathi
learned men. The second event was the coming of two religious sects known as Mahanubhav
Panth and Warkari Panth which adopted Marathi as the medium for preaching their doctrines of
devotion. Writers of the Mahanubhav sect contributed to Marathi prose while the saint-poets of
Warkari sect composed Marathi poetry. However, the latter group is regarded as the pioneers and
founders of Marathi literature.

Marathi literature first made its appearance in the 10th century AD and can be grouped into two
ages: Ancient or Old Marathi literature (1000-1800) and Modern Marathi Literature (1800
onwards). The former consisted mainly of poetry composed in metres and restricted to the poet’s
choice of words and rhythms. It was particularly devotional, narrative and pessimistic. for old
Marathi poets hadn’t been able to develop satire, parody, irony and humor into their poetry.

Old Marathi Literature covers about eight centuries. Its pioneers and founders were Mukundaraj
(Vivekasindhu) and Dnyaneshwar (Dnyaneshwari) whose younger contemporary Namdeo (1270-
1350) wrote devotional verses in a simple language for the people. Two centuries later came the
great saint and greater poet Eknath whose Ekanathi Bhagavata is a literary masterpiece of Marathi
literature. Eknath had a simple and attractive style of composing poetry and was the founder of
secular poetry in Marathi. Mukteshwar (1574-1645) later developed this style, and his version of
the Mahabharata is the best example of a great narrative poem in Marathi. In the history of
Marathi literature, Tukaram (1608-1651) has been given a unique stature. A real genius,
Tukaram’s poetry came forth from his wonderful inspirations. He was a radical reformer and has
often been called Sant (saint) Tukaram. Terseness, clarity, vigor and earnestness were found in
every line of his poetry.

Tukaram’s associate Ramdas’ (1608-1681) Dasabodha is an inspiring and impressive piece in


Marathi. 18th century poetry is well represented by Vaman Pandit (Yathartha Dipika), Raghunath
Pandit (Nala Damayanti Swayamvara) and Shridhar Pandit (Pandavpratap, Harivijay and
Ramvijay). However, the most versatile and voluminous writer among the poets was Moropanta
(1729-1794) whose Mahabharata was the first epic poem in Marathi. The historical section of the
old Marathi literature was unique as it contained both prose and poetry. The prose section
contained the Bakhars that were written after the foundation of the Maratha kingdom by Shivaji.
The poetry section contained the Padavas and the Katavas composed by the Shahirs. The period
from 1794 to 1818 is regarded as the closing period of the Old Marathi literature and the
beginning of the Modern Marathi literature.

The modern period has been divided into four ages. The first period starts from 1800 to 1885, the
second from 1885 to 1920, the third from 1921 to 1945, and finally the last period continues till
now. In this period, almost all forms of literature in prose and poetry were developed and even
scientific literature was produced. Under the British rule, attempts were made to enrich both the
language and literature. The Raja of Tanjore got the first English Book translated to Marathi in
1817. Several more such attempts were made and translation work was encouraged a lot. Chhatre,
Bal Shastri Jambhekar, Lokahitavadi and Jotiba Phule wrote on various topics in Marathi. The
first Marathi newspaper was started in 1835, and Baba Padamji’s Yamuna Paryatan was the first
Marathi novel written on social reform in 1857.

- 27 -
However, this period was a lean one for original poetry and only translations of Sanskrit poems
were produced. Establishment of the University of Bombay in 1858 and the starting of the
newspaper Kesari in 1880-81 gave a boost to the development of Modern Marathi Literature.
Keshavasuta (1866-1905), the first Marathi revolutionary poet, launched Modern Marathi poetry
with his first poem.

In this period two groups of poets, Ravikiran Mandal and Kavi Tambi, together encouraged some
great poets like Ananta Kanekar (Chandarat), Kavi Anil (Phulwat) and N G Deshpande. Poetry
after 1945 explores human life in all its shades. B S Mardhekar set the fashion of this trend for P
S Rage, Vinda Karandikar, Vasant Bapat and Shanta Shelke.

Vishnudas Bhave was the pioneer of Marathi drama which was born in 1843. Other great
dramatists were B P Kirloskar (Saubhadra), G B Deval (Sharada), R G Gadkari (Ekach Pyala),
Mama Varerkar (Apporva Bangal) and P L Deshpande (Amaldar). Marathi stage is still following
its rich tradition and is a very popular form of entertainment.

Novels were not far behind, and the first to be published was ‘Madhali Sthiti’ by Hari Narayan
Apte (1864-1919). Natha Madhav, CV Vaidya, Prof V M Joshi, V S Khandekar, Sane Guruji,
Kusumvati Deshpande, Kamalabai Tilak are the prominent novelists of the Marathi language. The
short story and essay forms came into existence in this period through Diwakar Krishna, H N
Apte and V S Gurjar. S M Mate, Durga Bhagwat, N S Phadke are well-known essayists in
Marathi, a rich language in all its forms and branches with a history of over a thousand years. It
occupies a distinct position in the field of Indian Literature and will continue to do so even in the
near future.

If I am given a formula, and I am ignorant of its meaning, it cannot teach me anything, but
if I already know it what does the formula teach me?

About Languages
Hi everybody,
By chance today I had a useful discussion with a scholar from Canada who is studying
Mahabharata and Sanskrit.
He mentioned that around 100 years back Heebru script and language was about to vanish from
Israil and it was not used as mother tounge there but some people from Israil they started working
to preserve it and they have succeeded in their endevor as now it has become a first language of
Israil. Original Bible was written in Heebru script which is still followed by Jue people. He added
that it is just like how in India some people are trying to preserve Sanskrit. Now as well nobody
has Sanskrit as their mother tounge though our ancient scriptures (Vedas, Upanishadas, Shrimat
Bhagavat Geeta Ramayana, Mahabharata etc) are written in Sanskrit. I told him about a couple of
villages in Karnataka e.g Uttan where everybody speaks Sanskrit. But Sigh !! What about our
other different languages? We have so much to preserve and so much work to do.
He felt bad about vanishing the native languages in Canada, Australia where natives are called
aborginals and not well treated. He also has an europian origin but still he feels that ancient
languages and scripts must be preserved as it contains much beauty. He knows Heebru script,
Greek and Devnagari along with Roman. He mentioned about Indians in Canada who can't speak
their mother tounge or Hindi properly so they speak English at home. Sigh!!
Though Greece is a member of europian union they have their own language and script which
dominates English in all aspects. In fact English is derived from Latin and Greek languages with
Roman script. It doesn't have any original thing of its own but still it is dominating al over the
world. In one of our course sessions when I wrote Devnagari (Marathi) on BB (other scripts like
Chines, Greek and Roman were also written on BB) and you will not believe everybody was
amazed by looking at our script. It was looking really devine.....the meaningful to the word
"Devnagari". If we really find evidences we have much more consistency in prononciation and
writing.
I really enjoy such discussions with the international community here as it is helpful in enriching
and evolving myself more.............The more I am getting information about other cultures the
more I feel the greatness and the truth in....."Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam"!! and feel proud of
our culture as well as respect for other cultures.
Just for curiosity you can do googal search for the existed scripts in the world and you will have
some insight.

Vedas and BhagvadGeeta


"When Impact Making leaders take on a new task, they either figure out the roadmap in 90 days
or never do"

HMV, the gramophone company had once published a pamphlet giving the history of the
gramophone record. Thomas Alwa Edison invented gramophone in the 19 th century. Edison,
who had invented many other gadgets like incandescent lamp, had become a legend even in his
own time. When he invented the gramophone record, which could record human voice for
posterity, he wanted to record the voice of an eminent scholar on his first piece. He chose Prof.
Max Muller of England, another great personality of the 19 th century. He wrote to Max Muller
saying, “I want to meet you and record your voice, when should I come?” Max Muller, who had
great respect for Edison, asked him to come on a suitable time when most of the scholars of the
Europe would be gathering in England. Accordingly, Edison took a ship and went to England. He
was introduced to the audience. All cheered Edison’s presence. Later, at the request of Edison,
Max Muller came on the stage and spoke in front of the instrument. Then Edison went back to his
laboratory and by afternoon came back with a disc. He played the gramophone disc from his

- 31 -
instrument. The audience was thrilled to here the voice of Max Muller from the instrument. They
were glad that voice of great persons could be stored for the benefit of posterity.
After several rounds of applause and congratulations to Thomas Alwa Edison, Max Muller came
to the stage and addressed the scholars and asked them, “ you heard my original voice in the
morning. Then you heard the same voice coming out from this instrument in the afternoon. Do
you understand what I had said in the morning or what you heard in the afternoon?” The audience
fell silent because they could not understand the language in which Max Muller had spoken. It
was ‘Greek and Latin’ to them as they say. But had it been Greek or Latin, they would have
definitely understood because they were from various parts of Europe. It was in a language,
which the European scholars had never heard. Max Muller then explained what he had spoken.
He said that the language he spoke was Sanskrit and it was the first sloka of Rig Veda, which says
“Agni Meele Purohitam”. This was the first recorded public version on the gramophone plate.
Why did Max Muller choose this? Addressing the audience he said, “Vedas are the oldest text of
the human race. And Agni Meele Purohitam is the first verse of Rig Veda. In the most primordial
time when the people of Europe were jumping like chimpanzees from tree to tree and branch to
branch, when they did not know how to cover their bodies but with fig leaves, did not know
agriculture and lived by hunting and lived in caves, at that remote past, Indians had attained high
civilization and they gave to the world universal philosophies in the form of the Vedas.”
According to Max Muller, Vedas are the oldest texts of the human race. Thus, the antiquity of the
Vedas is appreciated by Max Muller and HMV.---The HMV passage goes on to say that Max
Muller asked Edison to play this passage once again, this time when Agni Meele Purohitam was
re-played, the entire audience stood up in silence as a mark of respect for the ancient Hindu sages,
this time there were no claps and there was only a mark of respect.
Dr. Albert Einstein was also a passionate follower of Hindu philosophy. “We owe a lot to
Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could
have been made. I have made the Gita as the main source of my inspiration and guide for the
purpose of scientific investigations and formation of my theories.” Said Albert Einstein.

Subject: good quotes

things which u should always remember in life

Everything is okay in the end. If it's not okay, then it's not the end.
Most people walk in and out of your life,
But only friends leave footprints in your heart.
Love starts with a smile, grows with a kiss, and ends with a tear.
Don't cry over anyone who won't cry over you.
If love isn't a game, why are there so many players?
Good friends are hard to find, harder to leave, and impossible to forget.
You can only go as far as you push.
The hardest thing to do is watch the one you love, love somebody else.
Don't let the past hold you back. You're missing the good stuff
Life's short. Look around once in a while so you don't miss it.
A best friend is like a four leaf clover, hard to find and lucky to have
Best friends are the siblings God forgot to give us.
When it hurts to look back, and you're scared to look ahead,
you can look beside you and your best friend will be there.
Good friends are like stars.... You don't always see them, but you know they are always
there.
Don't frown. You never know who is falling in love with your smile.
What do you do when the only person who can make you stop crying is the person who
made you cry?
Nobody is perfect until you fall in love with them.

>Someone whom you reject today, will reject you tomorrow


>There are two types of people--those who come into a room and say, 'Well,
>here I am!' and those who come in and say, 'Ah, there you are.'
>He who asks is a fool for five minutes, but he who does not ask remains a
>fool forever.
>A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a >song.
>Be not afraid of growing slowly, be afraid only of standing still.
>The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without >trials.
>The palest ink is better than the best memory.
>Trust yourself. Think for yourself. Act for yourself. Speak for yourself. Be
>yourself. Imitation is suicide.

- 46 -
>You have to recognize when the right place and the right time fuse and take
>advantage of that opportunity. There are plenty of opportunities out there.
>You can't sit back and wait.
>To know the road ahead, ask those coming back.

Life is pleasant.
Death is peaceful.
It's the transition that's troublesome.

Arguing with your Boss is like


wrestling with a pig in mud.
After a while you realize that
while you are getting dirty,
the pig is actually enjoying it.

Help a man when he is in trouble and


he will remember you
when he is in trouble again.

Complex problems have simple,


easy to understand wrong answers.
It is not exactly cheating,
I prefer to consider it
creative problem solving.

Behind every successful woman,


is a man who is surprised.

Whoever said money can't buy happiness,


didn't know where to shop.

Alcohol doesn't solve any problems,


but then again, neither does milk.

Most people are only alive because


it is illegal to shoot them.

I'm not a complete idiot,


there're still some parts missing!

Forgive your enemies but


remember their names

The number of people watching you


is directly proportional to the
stupidity of your action.

I remember the time I was kidnapped and


they sent a piece of my finger
to my father.
- He said he wanted more proof.

- 47 -
Some pain is physical
and some is mental,
but one that's both is
dental.

"Enjoy life. There's plenty of time to be dead

FRIENDSHIP AND LOVE


• Love starts with a smile, grows with a kiss, and ends with a tear.
• Don't cry over anyone who won't cry over you.
• Good friends are hard to find, harder to leave, and impossible to forget.
• You can only go as far as you push.
• Actions speak louder than words.
• The hardest thing to do is watch the one you love, love somebody else.
• Don't let the past hold you back; you're missing the good stuff.
• Life's short. If you don't look around once in a while, you might miss it.
• A best friend is like a four leaf clover: hard to find and lucky to have.
• If you think that the world means nothing, think again. You might mean the
world to someone else.
• When it hurts to look back, and you're scared to look ahead, you can look beside
you and your best friend will be there
• True friendship never ends.
• Friends are forever.
• Good friends are like stars....You don't always see them, but you know they are
always there.
• Don't frown. You never know who is falling in love with your smile.
• What do you do when the only person who can make you stop crying is the
person who made you cry?
• NOBODY IS PERFECT UNTIL YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH THEM. (Isn't that the
truth?)
• Everything is okay in the end. If it's not okay, then it's not the end.

Manasee Chandorkar

Anger is a condition in which the tongue works faster than the mind.
You can't change the past, but you can ruin the present by worrying over the future.
Love...and you shall be loved.
God always gives His best to those who leave the choice with Him.
All people smile in the same language.
A hug is a great gift... one size fits all. It can be given for any occasion and it's easy to
exchange.
Everyone needs to be loved... especially when they do not deserve it.
The real measure of a man's wealth is what he has invested in eternity.
Laughter is God's sunshine.
Everyone has beauty but not everyone sees it.
It's important for parents to live the same things they teach.
Thank God for what you have, TRUST GOD for what you need.

- 48 -
If you fill your heart with regrets of yesterday and the worries of tomorrow, you have no
today to be thankful for.
Man looks at outward appearance but the Lord looks within.
The choice you make today will usually affect tomorrow. Take time to laugh, for it is the
music of the soul.
If anyone speaks badly of you, live so none will believe it. Patience is the ability to idle
your motor when you feel like stripping your gears.
Love is strengthened by working through conflicts together.
The best thing parents can do for their children is to love each other.
Harsh words break no bones but they do break hearts. To get out of a difficulty, one
usually must go through it. We take for granted the things that we should be giving
thanks for.
Love is the only thing that can be divided without being diminished.
Happiness is enhanced by others but does not depend upon others.
For every minute you are angry with someone, you lose 60 seconds of happiness that you
can never get back.
Do what you can, for who you can, with what you have, and where you are.
Manoj kulkarni ....

Marriage... A Man's Perspective!


I married Miss Right. I just didn't know her first name was... Always.
I haven't spoken to my wife for 18 months.
I don't like to interrupt.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Marriage is a 3-ring circus:
Engagement ring, wedding ring, suffering.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
The last fight was my fault. My wife asked,
"What's on the TV?"
I said, "Dust!"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the beginning, God created earth and rested.

Then God created man and rested. Then God created woman.
Since then, neither God nor man has rested.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Young Son: Is it true, Dad, I heard that in some parts of Africa a man
doesn't know his wife until he marries her?
Dad: That happens in every country, son.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
A man inserted an 'ad' in the classified: "Wife wanted".
Next day he received a hundred letters.
They all said the same thing: "You can have mine."
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
The most effective way to remember your wife's birthday is to forget it
once.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
How do most men define marriage?
An expensive way to get laundry done for free.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Just think, if it weren't for marriage, men would go
through life thinking they had no faults at all.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you want your wife to listen and pay undivided
attention to every word you say, talk in your sleep.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Then there was a man who said, "I never knew what real
happiness was until I got married; and then it was too
late."
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
To all Married and Unmarried men..ladies with good sense of humor
can proceed but plz keep yor cool ..i never said all this ;-)
All about WIVES , a gud one...

My wife dresses to kill. She also cooks the same way.

My wife and I were happy for twenty years. Then we met.

A good wife always forgives her husband when she's wrong.
Milton Berle
-------------------------------------------------------------------
I was married by a judge. I should have asked for a jury.
George Burns
-------------------------------------------------------------------
I bought my wife a new car. She called and said, "There was water in the carburetor."
I asked her , "Where's the car?" She replied, "In the lake."

The secret of a happy marriage remains a secret.
Henny Youngman
-------------------------------------------------------------------
After a quarrel, a wife said to her husband, "You know, I was a fool when married you."
The husband replied, "Yes, dear, but I was in love and didn't notice."
-------------------------------------------------------------------
When a man steals your wife, there is no better revenge than to let him keep her.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
I haven't spoken to my wife in 18 m! onths – I don't like to interrupt her.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
My girlfriend told me I should be more affectionate.
So I got myself two girlfriends.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
A man said his credit card was stolen but he decided not to report
it since the thief was spending much less than his wife did.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Getting married is very much like going to a restaurant with friends. You order what you
want, then when you see what the other fellow has, You wish you had ordered that.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
If you want your spouse to listen and pay strict attention to every word you say, talk in
your sleep.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
I married Miss Right. I just didn't know her first name was Always.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
It's not true that married men live longer than single men. It only seems longer.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Losing a wife can be very hard. In my case, it was almost impossible.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
A man was complaining to a friend: "I had it all -money, a beautiful house, a big car, the
love of a beautiful woman and then,BAM!, it was all gone!"
"What happened?" asked his friend. "My wife found out..."
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Just think, if it weren't for marriage, men would go through life thinking they had no
faults at all.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
I think one of the greatest things about marriage is that as both husband and father, I
can say anything I want to around the house.
Of course, no one pays the least bit of attention.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
A man meets a genie. The genie tells him he can ask for whatever he wants, But his
mother-in-law gets double of what he gets.
The man thinks for a moment and says, "Okay, give me a million dollars and beat me till
I'm half dead."
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Men who have pierced ears are better prepared for marriage.
They've experienced pain and bought jewellery.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

How do most men define marriage?

-------------------------------------------------------------------
The most effective way to remember your wife's birthday is to forget it once.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Words to live by: Do not argue with a spouse who is packing your
parachute
-------------------------------------------------------------------
First guy (proudly): "My wife's an angel!"
Second guy: "You're lucky, mine's still alive.

Science is nothing but trained and organized common sense, differing from the

from the manner in which a savage wields his club.

Moderation is a fatal thing. . . . Nothing succeeds like excess.


Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.
Woman begins by resisting a man's advances and ends by blocking his retreat.
Men always want to be a woman's first love. Women like to be a man's last romance.
The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it.
Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.
One should always play fairly when one has the winning cards.
Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.
A little sincerity is a dangerous thing, and a great deal of it is absolutely fatal.
A man can't be too careful in the choice of his enemies.
A pessimist is one who, when he has a choice of two evils, chooses both.
The cynic knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.
Bigamy is having one wife too many. Monogamy is the same.
Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes.
True friends stab you in the front.
The only thing to do with good advice is to pass it on. It is never any use to oneself.
I am not young enough to know everything.
I love acting. It is so much more real than life.
I sometimes think that God in creating man somewhat overestimated his ability.
In America, the President reigns for four years, and journalism governs for ever and
ever.
To lose one parent may be regarded as a misfortune... to lose both seems like
carelessness.
It is better to be beautiful than to be good. But it is better to be good than to be ugly.
The pure and simple truth is rarely pure and never simple.
One should never trust a woman who tells her real age. If she tells that, she'll tell
anything.
To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.
The play was a great success, but the audience was a disaster.
The public is wonderfully tolerant. It forgives everything except genius.
The well-bred contradict other people. The wise contradict themselves.

The brain is a wonderful organ. It starts working the moment you get up in
the morning and does not stop until you get into the office.
* Robert Frost

- 66 -
The trouble with being punctual is that nobody's there to appreciate it.
* Franklin P. Jones

Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit
with a pretty girl for an hour,and it seems like a minute. THAT'S
relativity."
* Albert Einstein

We must believe in luck. For how else can we explain the success of those
we don't like?
* Jean Cocturan

It's amazing that the amount of news that happens in the world everyday
always just exactly fits the newspaper.
* Jerry Seinfeld

If it were not for Thomas Edison, we would all be watching television in


the dark.
* Michael Landon

Always and never are two words you should always remember never to use.
* Wendell Johnson

It matters not whether you win or lose; what matters is whether I win or
lose.
* Darrin Weinberg

Arguing with your Boss is like wrestling with a pig in the mud. After a
while you realize that while you are getting dirty, the pig is actually
enjoying it...!

People get attached to the *sources* of their miseries - that's why most of

If...

If my body could fly as high


as you make my spirit soar,
my feet would be miles and miles away
From ever landing on the floor.

If my mind could see in you


the same thingsmy heart has seen,
you would look exactly the same
as you have always been.

If my love for you Could be any more real


Than it already is,
Then nothing else could be real
Because it would be The only thing that would exist.

If my arms could hold you as often


as they wished,
they'd be mended together
around you,
No need for fingertips.

If my eyes could only see you


Every time > they were open,
I would leave > them open all the time.

If my dreams > didn't have you in them,


they'd be nightmares instead,
but my dreams
>
> Is nothing short of fantasies,
> you're in every one of them.

> If I didn't have you,


> this poem never would have
> been able to begin,
> and without a beginning,
> I could never make
> this poem have an end

SLOW DANCE

Have you ever watched kids


On a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain
Slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?
You better slow down.
Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last.

Do you run through each day


On the fly?
When you ask "How are you?"
Do you hear the reply?
When the day is done
Do you lie in your bed
With the next hundred chores
Running through your head?
You'd better slow down
Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last.

Ever told your child,


We'll do it tomorrow?
And in your haste,
Not see his sorrow?
Ever lost touch,
Let a good friendship die
Cause you never had time
To call and say "Hi"?
You'd better slow down.
Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere


You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift....
Thrown away.
Life is not a race.
Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before the song is over.
Yogesh

The Birds that never sung...
The Flowers that never bloomed...
The Rains that never showered...
The Wind that never blow...

To those forgotten dreams..


To those unseen tears...
To those lonely walks...
To those silent talks...

If the Oceans can tell the depth of love..


If the Mountains can speak the heights of desire..
If the Rivers can share the secrets of a search...
And If the Sky can exhibit the reach of a heart..

My love...
None of these could possibly tell you
The pain that struck my heart
When I knew
That your sister was more beautiful than you.

Subject: hope u like this poem

May our friendship last forever;


May I sail upon your sea.
May we go through life together;
May there always be a "we."

- 72 -
May I be your endless sky;
May you breathe my gentle air.
May you never wonder why
Each time you look for me, I'm there.?
May we be for each a smile
Like the warm, life-giving sun;
Yet when we're in pain awhile,
May our suffering be one.

May we share our special days,


The happiness of one for two;
And if we must go separate ways,
Let my love remain with you.

Manasee Chandorkar
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take,
but by the moments that take our breath away.

AN ENGINEER'S VALENTINE POEM


I was alone and all was dark
Beneath me and above
My life was full of volts and amps
But not the spark of love
But now that your are here with me
My heart is overjoyed
You turn the square of my heart
Into a sinusoid
You load things from my memory
Onto my system's bus
My life was once assembly code
Now it's C++
I love the way you solder things
My circuits you can fix
The voltage across your diode is
much more than just point six
With your amps and resistors
You have built my integrator
I cannot survive without you
You are my function generator
You have charged my life, increased my gain
And made my maths discreet
And now I'll end my poem here
Control, Alt, and Delete

What Life Has Become All ABOUT
Our WINDOWS Open On The Face Of GATES
When It ShouldBe Our LIFE-MATES

We Play Around With MOUSE


When It Should Be Our SPOUSE
Always Our Hands Are On The KEYS
When It Should Be On Our 'WOULD-BEes'
How Long Can You Go On CODING
When You Should Be At Ooty BOATING
Hey You Robots Running After CAREER
Listen To This Carefully DEAR

Life Is Not Just COBOL,


It Is Also PYAR-KE-DO-BOL
Life Is Not Just C-PLUS-PLUS
It Is Also PYAR-PLUS-PLUS
Life Is Not Just DEBUGGING
It Is Also HUGGING.....

SO Once In A While Think TWICE


Life Will Be So NICE
If One Gets Out Of 'if-then-else' & "While Loop! s'
And Goes Out With Friends For Dates, FRUIT-SALADS &
SOUPS
C'mon End This Life Of ROBOTISM
And Fill It With ROMANTICISM

C'MON All The S/w Romeos (And Juliets)


Lets Take A VowAll Boring

WENT TO A PARTY, MUM

I went to a party,
And remembered what you said.
You told me not to drink, Mom
So I had a sprite instead.

I felt proud of myself,


The way you said I would,
That I didn't drink and drive,
Though some friends said I should.

I made a healthy choice,


And your advice to me was right,
The party finally ended,
And the kids drove out of sight.

I got into my car,


Sure to get home in one piece,
I never knew what was coming,
Mom Something I expected least.
Now I'm lying on the pavement,

And I hear the policeman say,


The kid that caused this wreck was drunk,
Mom, his voice seems far
away.

My own blood's all around me,


As I try hard not to cry.
I can hear the paramedic say,
This girl is going to die.

I'm sure the guy had no idea,


While he was flying high,
! Because he chose to drink and drive,
Now I would have to die.

So why do people do it, Mom


Knowing that it ruins lives?
And now the pain is cutting me,
Like a hundred stabbing knives.

Tell sister not to be afraid, Mom


Tell daddy to be brave,
And when I go to heaven,
Put "Daddy's Girl" on my grave.

- 79 -
Someone should have taught him,
That it's wrong to drink and drive.
Maybe if his parents had,
I'd still be alive.

My breath is getting shorter, Mom


I'm getting really scared.
These are my final moments,
And I'm so unprepared.

I wish that you could hold me Mom,


As I lie here and die.
I wish that I could say, "I love you, Mom!"
So I love you and good-bye.

Station pe ek coolie se bahar jane ka rasta pooncha,


Coolie ne kaha "bahar jaake poocho."

Maine khud hi rasta doondh liya,


Bahar jaake taxiwale se pooncha,
"bhai saab Aagre ka kitna loge?"
jawab mila, "bechna nahi hai.."

taxi chod, maine bus pakad li,


conductor se pooncha, "ji. kya mein cigarette pi sakta hoon?"
wo gurrra kar bola, "hargiz nahi, yaha cigarette pina mana hai."
Maine kaha, "par wo janab to pi rahe hai!"
Phir se gurrrraya, " usne mujhse pooncha nahi hai."

Aagre pahucha, hotel gaya.


Manager se kaha, " mujhe room chahiye, satve manzil pe."
Manager ne kaha, "rahane ke liye ya koodne ke liye?"
Room pahucha, waiter se kaha, "ek paani ka gilas milega."!
Usne jawab diya, " nahi sahab, yaha to saare kanch ke milte hai."

Hotel se nikla dost ke ghar jaane ke liye,


Raste me ek sahab se pooncha, "janab,
ye sadak kaha ko jaati hai?"
Janab hans kar bole, " peechle bees saal se dekh
rahan hoon, yahi padi hai....kahin nahin jaati"

Dost ke ghar pahucha, to mujhe dekhte hi chownk pada


Usne poocha, "kaise aana hua?"
Ab tak to mujhe bhi aadat pad gayi thi,
Maine bhi jawab diya, "Train se.."

- 80 -
Meri aaobhagat karne ke liye dost ne apni biwi se kaha,
"areeee sunti ho... mera dost pehli baar ghar aaya hai, uuse kuch
taja

taja khilao.." sunte hi bhabhiji ne ghar ki sari


khidkiya aur darwaje khol diye.
Kaha, "taji hawa kha lijiye."

Dost ne phir se badi pyar se biwi se kaha,


"areeee sunti ho.! ..inhe jara apna chalis saal
purana aachar to dikhana."
Bhabiji ek batli me rakha aachar le aayi,
Maine bhi apnapan dikhate hue bhabiji se kaha,
"bhabhiji, aachar sirf dikhayengi, chakhayengi nahi....?"
Bhabiji ne taak jawab diya,
"yuhi agar sab ko chakhati to aachar chalis saal
purana kaise hota..?"

Thodi der baad dekha, bhabiji apne grandson ko soola rahi thi,
Saath me lori bhi ga rahi thi, "diploma so ja, diploma so ja."
Lori soon mein hairan hua aur dost se poocha,
"yaar ye diploma kya hai?"
Dost ne jawab diya, "mere grandson ka naam,
Beti bambai gayi thi, diploma lene ke liye aur saath mein ise le
aayi,

isiliye hamne iska naam diploma rakh diya."


Phir maine pooncha, "aajkal tumhari beti kya kar rahi hai?"
Dost ne jawab diya, "bambai gayi! hai, degree lene ke liye....."

~~My Thoughts~~

As I grow older
I see things in a different light
For reasons only I know
Life and the world around me
Becomes so much more important

A beautiful sunrise or sunset


The soothing sound of rain falling on a tin roof
A soft breeze whispering against my face
The sweet melody of birds singing in the trees.

- 81 -
In times of uncertainty
I hardly know what to do
It's acrimonious to seek words
That is understanding and logical.

So, I stumble along grasping


At an element to guide me and help me understand
Can I ever be carefree again
As I was when I was young and vulnerable.

Ready to challenge the world


Giving and receiving freely with so much love
Can there ever be that feeling
of safety and contentment
Ready to challenge the world.

I think not as I ponder in thought


I think not.....

The Train of Life

Some folks ride the train of life


Looking out the rear,
Watching miles of life roll by,
And marking every year.

They sit in sad remembrance,


Of wasted days gone by,
And curse their life for what it was,
And hang their head and cry.

- 83 -
But I don't concern myself with that,
I took a different vent,
I look forward to what life holds,
And not what has been spent.

So strap me to the engine,


As securely as I can be,
I want to be out on the front,
To see what I can see.

I want to feel the winds of change,


Blowing in my face,
I want to see what life unfolds,
As I move from place to place.

I want to see what's coming up,


Not looking at the past,
Life's too short for yesterdays,
It moves along too fast.

So if the ride gets bumpy,


While you are looking back,
Go up front, and you may find,
Your life has jumped the track.

It's all right to remember,


That's part of history,
But up front's where it's happening,
There's so much mystery.

The enjoyment of living,


Is not where we have been,
It's looking ever forward,
To another year and ten.

It's searching all the byways,


Never should you refrain,
For if you want to live your life,
You gotta drive the train.

Dear Gautam,
Saprem Namaskar,
Here is a nice poem for you. Hope you will like it.
Regards,
Anagha Joshi

.......................................................
Come Back

I miss you, dear freind,


When you were within my reach,
I failed to hold on to you.
I took you for granted
as a tool to get what I wanted.
I have hurt you.
I made you cry
with my words so sharp like a sword,
That tore your heart
But you were ready to forgive me,
and go on, as if nothing has happened.
Now that you are miles away,
I realize your true worth.
My heart yearns for you.
I just wanted to see you once,
to hear your voice just once.
to know that someone cares for me,
more than himself
Plwase come back
and give ma a chance to win you back.

Company mein project ke naam pe time paas karne ke baad maine ek poem likhne ka
socela hai. I might be a bad poet/shayar, magar kindly adjust. Ye poen likhne ko bhi solid
inspirationmlagta hai, aai shappath bolta ahi tumko. Poem is as follows:
Apun ke life mein tension hi tension,
Ladki log naam karte hi mention.
Jab bhi apun ne line hai daali,
Saala apun ki kismat har wakaat khalee.
Apun bahut try karta hai - but.................
Saala hota hai mera hamesha POPAT!
Primary mein ek ladki ne, kiya tha mushkil jeena,
naam that uska dil par, naam that uska "sheena",
Roj usko dekhta tha, uskohi follow karta tha,
Sollid line marta tha, magar kehne se darta tha.
Uske waaste apun ne bheja Pappu ke saath sandesa,
Bola mere dil ki baat sun, bana de mereko tu apnasaa,
Ladki jo chillayee re, aa gaya PT master,
Mereko ulta latkaaya, baapre...pichwade pe maara duster.
Apun bahut try karta hai - but.................
Saala hota hai mera hamesha POPAT!
Secondary mein ek ladki ne kiya thee mushkil life,
naam tha uska "julie", socha banaoonga use apnee wife,
Roj usko dekhta tha, uskohi follow karta tha,
Sollid line marta tha, magar kehne se darta tha.
Uske waaste apun ne bheja Pappu ke saath citthi,
Bola mere dil ki baat sun, tu lagtee hai mere ko meethi,
Ladki jo chillayee re, pakad ne aaya gurkha,
Yaar headmaster ne bola "Chal ban ja tu ab Murga".
Apun bahut try karta hai - but.................
Saala hota hai mera hamesha POPAT!
Junior college mein ek ladki ne, chura liya mera mann,

- 87 -
naame tha uska "sania", bola yeich banegi meree begum.
Roj usko dekhta tha, uskohi follow karta tha,
Sollid line marta tha, magar kehne se darta tha.
Uske waaste apun ne bheja Pappu ke saath kitaab,
Likha tha usme "mere dil ki baat sun, bol de 'I love you Janab'",
"Alla hoo abkar" chillayee, usne machaya halla,
mere pe tool pada, poora muslalmanon ka muhalla.
Apun bahut try karta hai - but.................
Saala hota hai mera hamesha POPAT!
Degree College mein ek ladki ne udaya mera bheja,
Kya item thi yaar, naam tha "Nikki Raheja",
Roj usko dekhta tha, uskohi follow karta tha,
Sollid line marta tha, magar kehne se darta tha.
Uske waaste apun ne bheja Pappu ke saath gulab,
Are use Pappu hi pasand aa gaya, toot gaye mere khwaab,
Ladki pataate pataate, nikale mere jawani ke saal,
Dukhne lage mere haath pao, ud gave saare baal,
Apun bahut try karta hai - but.................
Saala hota hai mera hamesha POPAT!
Saale Pappu ne kaha,
Abe aasmanee kabootar, jameen pe aaja Jhatpat!!!!!!
To samajhne ka, kabhee haarne ka nahee, ladkiya local trin train jaisee hoti hai, ek gayee
to doosree aati hai. Apan currently company mein teer chod rela hai, nishana lagega to
bol dega, kya samjaha?

Dear Marathi.NET Friends,


We are so unique in creation. Then we create perceptions and prejudices. But truly we are
beautiful in a unique way. Sending you a song, a poem I found on internet, on a very creative site
http://www.niehs.nih.gov/kids/home.htm

Every day is so wonderful, then suddenly,


It's hard to breathe
Now and then, I get insecure from all the pain
I'm so ashamed
I am beautiful no matter what they say
Words can't bring me down
I am beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring me down, oh no
So, don't you bring me down today
To all your friends, you're delirious
So consumed in all your doom
Trying hard to fill the emptiness, the pieces gone,
Left the puzzle undone, is that the way it is?
You are beautiful no matter what they say
Words can't bring you down, oh no
'Cause you are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring you down, oh no
So, don't you bring me down today
No matter what we do
No matter what we say
We're the song inside the tune
Full of beautiful mistakes

- 88 -
And everywhere we go,
The sun will always shine
And tomorrow we might
Awake on the other side
'Cause we are beautiful no matter what they say
Yes, words won't bring us down, no no
We are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring us down, oh no
So, don't you bring me down today
Don't you bring me down today
Don't you bring me down today

Dear Friends, This is Mumbai.
A CITY where everything is possible
Especially the impossible.
Where lovers first love and then marry,
Where there is place for every Tom,Dick and Harry
Where telephone bills make a person ill,
Where a person cannot sleep without a pill.
Where carbon dioxide is more than oxygen,
Where the road is considered to be a dustbin,
Where college canteens are full and classes empty,
Where Adam teasing is also making an entry,
Where a cycle reaches faster than a car,
Where everyone thinks himself to be a star,
Where sky scrapers overlook the slum,
Where houses collapse as the monoon comes,
Where people first act and then think,
Where there is more water in the pen than ink,
Where the roads see-saw in monsoon,
Where the beggars become rich soon,
Where the roads are levelled when the minister arrives,

Where college admission means hard cash,


Where cement is frequently mixed with ash.
This is Mumbai my dear,

- 89 -
But don't fear, just cheer,
Come to Mumbai every year !

Woh elco ki pani puri,


woh chowpatty ki chaat,
Woh Naturals ki ice cream,
Wah usme thi kuch baat.
Woh tiwari ki mithai,
woh raste ka dosa,
Woh shivsagar ki pav bhaji
aur Guru Kripa ka samosa.
Woh local train ka 'suffer',
woh juhu beach ki hawa,
woh chowpatty ke tange
aur joggers park ka sama.
Woh december ki zara si sardi,
woh baarishon ke mahine,
Woh garmi ki chuttiyan,
jab chuthe the paseene.
Woh holi ki masti,
woh navratri ka garba,
Woh divali ke patakhe
aur ganpati ka shor o sharaba.
Woh peak hours ki traffic,
woh BEST ki rush,
Woh tadapti garmi mien,
Snowmans ka ek kala khatta slush.
Woh Juhu beach,
Woh samunder ki lahere,
Woh dubte surajka nazaara,
Wah uska kyaa kehnaa.
Woh Sterlingka popcorn, aur Cotton World mei shopping.
Woh fashion Street ka nazaara,
aur Nariman Points ki buldinge,
Woh cinemaki queue,
Woh black ki tickets,
Woh Shivaji Parkka maidaan,
jahaan practice karte hai cricketers,
Itni cheezen kehneke baad
aur kitni karoo mei baatei,
Ye shehar hai aapka apnaa,
Jiskaa naam hai MUMBAI !!!!
Cheerio!

Glimpses of a Poem 2
Dear Marathi.NET Friends,
Grace name is synonymous to mysterious words. Words with deep meaning and
a internal rhythm. We not only get involve in the rhythm but also become
overwhelmed with emotions coming from between the lines of the poem.
In his book “chandramaadhaveeche Pradesh”, Grace has written a wonderful
poem named “paauusgaaNe”.

meghaa.nche kosaLatee parvat


daree ninaade door
gaav chimukaLe vaahoon jaaiil
asaa kashaalaa poor

Rain when takes the form of flood, it can take away all the things it has given us.
Grace has achieved a dramatic effect of fear from the word mountain in the first
line of this stanza. Most of the poems written by Grace are picturesque. They
create an exact picture of what is happening in from on our eyes.
In the third line when he says tiny village, it efficiently expresses the awareness of
nature’s power of destruction. Yes in front of this nature we are really trivial, and
tiny in size. When we think of our galaxy we get the feeling how small we are and
then if we think about our arguments and fights between person and person we
can understand how foolish we are.
The village is being carried away along water in the flood and the viewer is
helpless with numerous question in mind about why me? Why me?
Each time I read this poem it creates a strange touchy feeling in me. Ok friends
this is for today.
RegardsTushar

Beautiful Poem

"Around the corner I have a friend,


In this great city that has no end,
Yet the days go by and weeks rush on,
And before I know it, a year is gone.
And I never see my old friends face,
For life is a swift and terrible race,
He knows I like him just as well,
As in the days when I rang his bell.
And he rang mine but we were younger then,
And now we are busy, tired men.
Tired of playing a foolish game,
Tired of trying to make a name.
"Tomorrow" I say! "I will call on Jim
Just to show that I'm thinking of him."
But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes,
And distance between us grows and grows.
Around the corner, yet miles away,
"Here's a telegram sir," "Jim died today."
And that's what we get and deserve in the end.
Around the corner, a vanished friend"

<<<<< >>>>>

A different proposal

You came to my life like a flame wild in a forest


and that put all my qualities to many difficult tests

How flexible was I so foolishly I thought


until between your parents I was poorly caught

Here came the first test foremost of many more


when the grand old man made me stand in the door

Holding the roses in my hand I was standing in shower


but I could not even argue with him as I had not that power

And so bad was that till I met your marathon mother


after seeing her how great was everything other

- 94 -
So this is the end I desperately hoped in my heart
and just then came your brother in a disastrous start

I lost all my will and was about to say


“It’s not working but have a good day!”

Before I could make that mistake of my life


and put everything in an unpleasant strife

At your smiling face I looked for a flash


that beauty washed all my thoughts so rash

If I can take on the world for you my dear


then who cares for your family and why to fear

That has made me write this to you


And ask you , “will you say “ I do”.

When I will hold your hand and kiss you light


Will you kiss me back and say I am the one Mr. Right?

Flowers, Birds, You and Me – Mangesh Padgaonkar

Hello Dear Marathi.NET Friends,


Some years back I have tried translation of one poem by famous Mangesh Padgaonkar,
from his great poetry book “bolagaaNee”.

Flowers, Birds, You and Me

Flowers I have seen


since my birth…

Their color
Their fragrance
Rhythm blended
Their dance

Flowers I have seen


Since my birth…

Unexpectedly one day


You came with flowers
Without a word you smiled
Those were wonder hours

Since then their appearance


Was newer and loving for me
Together they all seem
As if they’re smiling for me

Now I love each flower


Just for you
Like those pretty moments
Every flower seems new

Now I have for each flower


Sweet blossomy explanations
They have developed with me
Mysterious hearty relations

Birds I have seen


Since my birth…

Their floating
In the air
Lively smooth
Colorful layer

Birds I have seen


Since my birth…

- 97 -
On that melodious evening
Fortune was in my hands
I was in the sea of joy
Holding your shy hands
A bird was singing
Romantic tune that time
From the deep dark green lands

Now I want every bird


Just for you
Like those touchy moments
Every bird seems new

Now I understand
Birds in a better way
They are beautiful singing parts
Playing in my romantic play.

(Original poem – phule, pakshee, too aaNi mee, by Mangesh Padgaonkar from his book
bolgaaNee, swair anuwaad – Tushar Joshi, i.e. yours truly :-)

Yours

Do It Now

Dear Marathi.NET Friends,


Touching poem useful in saving relationships and friendships. Many more are available
at the source http://1stholistic.com/Reading/prose/A2004/liv_do-it-now.htm

Do It Now

If you're mad with someone, and nobody's there to fix the situation... You fix it.
Maybe today, that person still wants to be your friend.
And if u don't, tomorrow can be too late.

If you're in love with somebody, but that person doesn't know... tell her/him.
Maybe today, that person is also in love with you.
And if you don't say it, tomorrow can be too late.

If you still love a person that you think has forgotten you... tell her/him.
Maybe that person have always loved you.
And if you don't tell her/him today, tomorrow can be too late.

- 98 -
If you need a hug of a friend... ask her/him for it.
Maybe they need it more than you do.
And if you don't ask for it today, tomorrow can be too late.

If you really have friends who you appreciate... tell them.


Maybe they appreciate you as well.
That if you don't and they leave or go far away today, tomorrow can be too late.

If you love your parents, and never had the chance to show them... do it.
Maybe you have them there to show them how you feel.
That if you don't and they leave today, then tomorrow can be too late.

"Khidaki se dekha to, raste par koi nahi tha,
Raste par ja ke dekha to, khidaki mein koi nahi tha..."

ab dekha unhone tirchhi nazar se,


to hum madhosh ho gaye,
par jab pata chala ki nazare hi tirchhi hai,
to hum behosh ho gaye...

ab jab ghire baadal, teri yaad aayi


jhoom ke barsa saawan, teri yaad aayi
bheega main, lekin phir bhi teri yaad aayi
kyon na aaye teri yaad?
tune jo chatri ab tak nahi lautai...

lal diwar par chune se likha tha ghalib ne


lal diwar par chune se likha tha ghalib ne
yahan likhna mana hai.

unki gali ke chakkar kaat kaat kar,


kutte bhi hamare yaar ho gaye,
wo to hamare ho na sake,
hum kutton ke sardar ho gaye...

na woh inkaar karti hai


na woh ikraar karti hai
KAMBAKHT mere hi sapno mein aakar
mere dost se pyaar karti hai.

maine poocha chand se...


kabhi dekha hai mere yaar sa hasin.....
chand bola.... 12036 entries found!

SUNA HAI PYAAR KE KISSEY AJIB HOTE HAIN,
KHUSHI KE BADLE GAM NASEEB HOTE HAIN,

PYAAR KARNEWALE BADE BADNASEEB HOTE HAI.

Aap ka ashiana dil me basa rakha hai,


Aap ki yado ko seene se laga rakha hai,
pata nahi yaad aate hai Aap hi kya,
vaise dost to humne auro ko bhi bana rakha hai
__________________________________________________

Saaye ki tarah saath rahne wale


hamse rishtaa tod gaye,
hakikat me milna mumkin nahi tha
magar khwabon me bhi aana chhod gaye
________________________________________________

Sukhe patte se pyar kar lenge,


hum tuj par aitbaar kar lenge,
tum yeh to kaho hum tumhare hai,
hum zindagi bhar intezaar kar lenge
________________________________________________

Tanhaion me unko hi yaad karte hain,


Wo salamt rahe yahi fariyad karte hai,
Ham unke hi mohabbt ka intzar karte hai,
Unko kya pata hum unse kitna pyaar karte hai.
________________________________________________

Chaho to dil se humko mita dena,


chaho to humko bhula dena,
par yeh wada karo ki aaye jo kabhi yaad humari,
Rona mat sirf muskura dena.
_________________________________________________

Jab bhi kise ko karib paya hai,


kasam khuda ki wahin dhoka khaya hai,
kyon dosh dete ho kaanto ko,
yeh zakhm to humne phoolon se paya hai!

Yaad karte ho humein tanhai mein,


dil dooba hai gamo ki gahrai mein,
humein dhoondo apne dil mein,
hum millenge tumhe tumhari parchai mein.

Har kadam par imtihaan leti hai zindagi


Har vaqt naya sadma deti hai zindagi
Hum zindagi se kya shikwa kare,
Aap jaise dost bhi to deti hai zindagi !

Kehte hain ki ISHQ main neend ud jaati hai
Koi humse bhi ishq kare
Khambhaqat neend bahut aati hai

Kar diya izhare-ishq hamne telephone par,


laakh rupaye ki bat thi,
do rupaye main ho gayee
Pyaar ke jaam ko aise na piyo ke
Adha piya aur adha chod diya
Yaron yeh pyaar hai pyaar
Nahin koi Vim Bar
Jo thoda sa lagaya aur bas ho gaya.......!!

Aur bhi cheezain bahut see lut chuki hain dil ke saath
Ye bataya dooston ne ishq furmane ke baad;
Is liye kamre ki ek ek cheez "check" karta hoon main
"Ek tere aane se pehle, ek tere jaane ke baad"
Log ishq karte hain,
Bade shor ke saath.
Humne bhi kiya,
Bade zor ke saath.
Magar ab karenge,
Thoda gaur ke saath.
Kyonki kal usko dekha,
Kisi aur ke saath.

Aansun se palke bhigo leta hoon


Yaad teri aati hai to ro leta hoon
Socha ki bhula doon tujhe magar,
Har baar faisla badal deta hoon

Zindagi Hai To Khwaab Hai


Khwaab Hai To Manzilein Hai
Manzilein Hai To Fasaley Hai
Fasaley Hai To Rastey Hai
Rastay Hai To Mushkilein Hai
Mushkilein Hai To Hausla Hai
Hausla Hai To Vishawas Hai
Vishvas hai to Paisa hai
Paisa hai to Shohrat hai
Shohrat hai to Izzat Hai
Izzat hai to Ladki hai
Ladki hai to Tension hai
Tension hai to Concern hai
Concern hai to a Khayaal hai
Khayaal hai to Khwaab hai
Khawab hai to Growth hai
Growth hai to Zindagi hai
Zindagi hai to khwaab hai
Matlab duniya Gol Gol hai
Bas ghumnewala chahiye......

Adaab !!
accha laga aapka "net" par anna,
accha laga aapse "chat" karna,
accha laga aapko "web cam" par dekhna,
accha laga yeh "internet" ka zamana...
ek waqt tha hum "mail" ka intezaar karte thay,
aur "postman" ke na anne par udaas hote thay,
par ab "inbox" jald bhar jaati hai,
aur "extra storage" ki notice aati hai...
ab ayya hai "SMS*" ka zamana,
gaya woh "windows" mein baithna,
ab hum "24/7 date" kar sakte hai,
sirf aapko "kiss" nahi kar sakte hai....
darte hai kabhi "current" na lag jaYe,
darte hai kabhi "parents" ko khabar na lag jaye,
darte hai kabhi "virus" na aa jaye,
darte hai kabhi "inter-net" bandh na ho jaye....
Dosti Karo
dosti karo college wali se,
piyar karo office wali se,
programme karo pados wali se,
aankh ladao sali se,
love karo dil wali se,
aur maar khao ghar wali se.

Lunch Box
Sardarji opens his lunch box in the middle of the road....why ?
Just to confirm whether
he is going to or coming back from the office

Mast Air
kya mast air chal rahele hai
cow log grass eat ker rahele hai
dog log bark bark ker rahela hai
mast log S.M.S. ker rahele hai
DHAKKAN log S.M.S perh raha hai

TUSI
TUSI bade hi gr8 ho
RASGULLE ki pl8 ho,
PEPSI ka cr8 ho,
ANDE ka oml8 ho,
SMS KARANE ME bade le8 ho,
JALEBI ki tarah stra8 ho,
KHER jo bhi ho mere fevr8 ho...!

SMS
Zindagi jaise ek saza si ho gayi hai,
gamm ke saagar me is kadar kho gayi hai,
tum kar do ek SMS yeh gujarish hai meri,
tumari SMS ki adat si ho gayi hai.

One from my collection of Urdu poems:


Har Sham Dhalay Is Sahil Pay
Koi Aik Pardeese Ata Hai
Jo Gum Sum Baytha Rehta Hai
Ya Lehrain Ginta Jata Hai
Or Tees Si Pakar Seenay Main
Chand Ansoo Rooz Bahata Hai
Weranay Saath Wo Lata Hai
Tanhai Saath Layjata Hai
Koi poochay Us Pardeesi Say
Kuch Baray Dil Ki Halat Kay
Kyon Phool Rutoon Main Chop Chop Kay
Yeh Moti Rait Milata Hai
Kyon Deer Talak Yeh Sahil Pay
Yoon Khali Haath Hilata Hai
Har Sham Dhalay Is Sahil Pay
Koi Aik Pardeese Ata Hai

badi asani se dil lagaye jaate hain,
badi mushkil se vaade nibhaye jaate hain,
le jaati hai mohabbat un raahon pe,
jahan diye nahin; dil jalaye jaate hain
--------------------------------------------
chund lamho ki zindagi hai,
nafraton se jiya nahi karte,
dushmano ki kya shikayat kare,
ab to dost bhi wafa nahi karte.
-------------------------------------
dosti ki tadap ko dikhaya nahi jaata,
dil mein lagi aag ko bhujaya nahi jaata,
chahe kitni bhi duri ho,
dosti mein aap jaise dost ko bhulaya nai jaata.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take,
but by the moments that take our breath away------------------rahul

Jaan bhi mango to hajir hai
Aaj apni bivi ko jaan kehte hai
Aur mango to inkar karte hai

Khuda, Ishq kar, khud ko jala ke dikha,


Phir ye duniya chala ke dikha
Baadal, bijli, toofan, bahut nacha liye
Kabhi kisi haseena ke dil ko hila ke dekha

Apne deewane pe itna zulm kyon dhaate ho?


Khwab mein bhi baap ko saath leke aate ho!

Tujeh bhulne ke liye hamne cigrette peeyaa

Ladki:
aap ki aankhon mein doob jaane ko jee chahta hai
par beech mein yeh kambakht chashma aa jaata hai

Ladka:
Chashma kyon lagaathe ho, O squint aankhon wali
Chashma lagaake faida kya? Jamega nishan-e-naak kalikali...

Ladki:
chashma lagaaye to ladke patatey nahin
chashma nikaale to ladke dikhatey nahin

LadKa:
Dil Ki Nazar Hi Sachi Nazar Hai
450x Zoom bhi crystal clear Hai

Ladki:
agar deewane dil ki baat nazaron se kehenge
telephone ke bill bhi thoda kam bharenge
Humne socha tha ki shayad
hum hi chahte hai tumko..
Par tumhe chahnewalon ka kafila nikla..
Dil ne kaha shikayat kar khuda se..
par khuda bhi tera chahanewala nikla.. lol.

Pathar ko bhi pani kar de hum
woh jaan rakhte hai,
anjaan ko bhi apna bana le hum
woh pehchaan rakhte hai.

Karte nahi izhar


phir kyun karte ho tum pyar?
nazron se bate bahat hui
ab lab se karo ikrar...

Fitrat me nahi Humare,


Mohabbat me aason Bahana,
Bewafaiko unki apni yadon me dohrana,
Do boond Sharab ki,
Bhuladeti hai sare gam,
Aur,Phir kisi nayi mehbooba ki talash me
Nikal padte hai Hum !!

Banakar tumhare dil ko basera,


tumhare dil mein rahna chahta hoon,
aaj tumse dil ki her woh baat,
mai bus kehna chahta hoon

Insaan jab is jahan mein aya uske pass gam tha


Aur jab is jahan se gaya tau uske pass gam tha
Khushi usne jis lamhe ko samajha, e yarab
Dar-asal tab uske gam ka ehsas kam tha

Har Dil Ki Tarah Mere Bhi Dil Ka, Anjaam Abhi Baaki Hai,
ThoDi Khushee Abhi Baaki Hai Isame, ThoDi Jaan Abhi Baaki Hai.

Dil ki sada ho, zubaa.n ki nida ho tum,


Hoor ho, hus.n ki har ada'a ho tum,
Is deewane ki khai'd ho, saza ho tum,
haya ho, fiza ho, thandi hawa ho tum.

Humne tumhari yaad mein ro-ro ke tub bhar diye,


tum itne bewafa nikale, usme nahaaiyen aur chal diye :)

Jab jate the dost, college me C++ Programming Sikhne


Tab jate the hum, maikhane peena sikhne.

Gaa to hum bhi sakte hain gar awaaz ho to,


Baja to hum bhi sakte hain gar saaz ho to,
Kaun kehta hai Shah Jahan ne Taj banaya,
Bana to hum bhi sakte hain, gar Mumtaz ho to

HUM NE TO MUHOBBAT MEIN APNE WAJOOD KE DO TUKDE KIYE;


EK KO KHUD SE JUDA PAYA;
EK PE TERA NAAM KHUDA PAYA .

Suna hai waqt ke saath halat badal jate hain
Insan badal jate hain, jazbat badal jate hain
Par tum na badloge, ye aitbar karta hoon
Main tumse pyaar karta hoon
Main tumse pyaar karta hoon

Kai din guzre, tumse bichde


Kai pal beete, kai yug beete
Kai baar sambhala, khud ko sanam
Par thak hi gaye, jeete jeete
Khai thi kasam ki lad lenge
Duniya walon se, duniya se
Par hay jamana jeet gaya
na tum jeete, na hum jeete

In haseeniyon se pyaar kya karna...


In adayon se pyaar kya karna...
Yeh Zakhm de kar hasa karti hain....
In bewafayon se pyaar kya karna

Kehte hai dekhne se nazar lag jaati hai....


Poonam ki raat mei bahar na nikalna.....
Kahee chaand tumhe na dekh le !
Wah wah wah wah......

jise dil diya woh dilli chali gayi


jise pyar kiya woh italy chali gayi
dil ne kaha khud khushi(suicide) kar le jalim
bijali ko haath lagaya to bijali chali gayi

wo aaye humari mazaar pe diya bhuja ke chaldiye


baaki bacha tel sar pe laga ke chal diye

Dil ki lagi kuch asi lagi, hum dil hi gawa bhetain,


ye dil ka lagana kya hua ek rog laga bhetain

har rahi ko manzil nahi milti,


har mujrim ko saza nahi milti,
mera bhi khwaish hai TajMahal banane ki,
magar har kisi ko Mumtaz nahi milti

kal bhi intezaar tha un ka, aaj bhi hai


kal thi udaasi unhe paane ki, aaj unhe khokar udaas hai..

Raat ko jalte diye din me Bhuja karte hai


Hum to tere pyaar me din raat jala karte hai

SHABE RAAT THI AUR GUL KHILATHA AFFTAB PE....


KISI NE KAHA CHAND HAI MENE KAHA CHAHERA TERA.....

- 116 -
aaj phir hatheli per lakiroon ka samunder dekhu
la tera haat ki main apna mukkadar dekhu

Woh chhum chhum karke aayee,


woh chhum chhum karke chalee gayee.
main haar leke khada raha
woh raakhi baandhke challe gayee

Dil diyaa tha dilruba samjh kar...


Dil diyaa tha dilruba samjh kar...
Kha gayee kameeni kharbuja samajhkar!

Phool hilkar padhe huvein hai, koi uttatha kyon nahin...


Phool hilkar padhe huvein hai, koi uttatha kyon nahin...
Ladki taher ke dekh rahi hai, koi pataatha kyon nahin!
Pher lete hain nazar, dil se bhula dete hain
Kya yun hi log wafaon ka sila dete hain
Wada kiya tha phir bhi na aaye mazar par
Humne to jaan di thi isi aitbaar par
Kyon bhula diya humein, kyon dil se gira diya
Hum to yun hi mare huye the, aap ke inkaar par

Sar jhukaoge to patthar khuda ho jayega


Itna na chaho usey wo bewafa ho jayega

Had ki had se guzarna koi aap se seekhe


Yun mohabbat mein jaan lutana koi aap se seekhe
Hum to dil deke bhi aap ke ho na sake
Dil se dil ko churana koi aap se seekhe
Yeh jo sheesha e dil churaya hai aapne
Is dil ko sambhalna koi aap se seekhe

Maine tujhe pyaar kiya


Saraswati samajhkar
Tere baap ne mujhe jalaa diya
Agarbatti samajhkar.

Duniya mein pyaar to sabhi karte hai


magar pyaar sabka safal nahi hota
Agar pyaar sabka safal hota
To pyaar ka pehla shabd adhura nahi hota

Likha hai khat tumhe


Kuch galat mat samajhna
Saali huN tumhari
Gharwali mat samajhna

Na koi Manzil rahi, na koi raasta,


Jab koi tamanna hi na rahi, to zindagi se kya wasta

- 117 -
Deewar kya giri mere angan ki!!
deeewar kya giri mere angan ki!!!
logon ne ise aane jaane ka rasta bana liya

Tumne ye ghoongat jo saja rakha hai


Mano sooraj ko duba diya hai
Jalti mohabbat ko jinda dafna diya hai
Uthana is ghoongat ko hamare pyar mein
Mar jana chahate hai ab teri baahon mein

Teri aankhen hai yaa neeli jheel


Teri aankhen hai yaa neeli jheel
So what's the big deal
Aaahat si koi aaye, to lagta hai tum ho, Aaahat si koi
aaye, to lagta hai tum ho, Saaya koi
lahrayein.......... Saaya koi lahrayein, to lagta hai
tum ho, Ab tum hee kaho kya tum kisi BHOOOTT se kam
ho..

Tumse mila main kal to, Mere dil mein hua ek sound,
Lekin aaj tum mili To kehti ho: Your file not found!

Ab aur kaho na tum, "but" ya "if"


Tum ho meri zindagi ki animated gif

Aysa bhi nahin hai ke, I don't likeyour face


Par dil ke computer mein, Nahin hai enough disk space

Ghar se nikalti ho tum jab, Pehen ke evening gown


Too many requests se, Ho jaata hai server down

Tumhaare liye pyaar ki application, Create main karoonga


Tum usse debug karna, Wait main karoonga

Tumhaara intezaar karte karte, Main so gaya


Yeh dekho mera connection, Time out ho gaya

Kya chaal hai tumhaari, Jaise chalti hai koi cat


What is your ICQ number, Aao karein chat

Tum jabse meri zindagi, mein aayi ho banke female,


Yaad raha na ab kuch, Na postman , Na e-Mail

Joh sadiyaon se hota aaya hai Woh repeat kar doonga...


Tu naa mili to tujhko dil sey Ctrl+Alt+Delete kar doonga...

Humse Kya Khata Hui Ki message Aanna Band Hai.......


Aap hi humse naraz hain ya Web Server band hai.......

Some More Shayaris...............
Aap samajhte hai, hamne aapko bhula rakha hai,
Aap nahi jaante ki dil mein chupa rakha hai,
Dekh naa le koi aapko aankhon mein meri,
Is darr se palkon ko jhuka rakha hai

Savera kya hua, sitaron ko bhul gaye,


Chand kya nikla, suraj ko bhul gaye,
Guzre kya kuch pal hamare bina,
Aap to hum hi ko bhul gaye …………………

Wo dard hai ke jise sehe sakoon, naa keh paaon,


Milega chain to ab jaan se guzarke mujhe ……
Gaya phir aaj ka din bhi, udas karke mujhe ……

Yaadein teri rakhi hai sambhal kar, durr kahi dil se nikalkar,
Sab kuch to wapis le liya hai tumne durr jakar,
In yaadon ko bhi le jate tum kisi din aakar

Cheers,
Radhika

Hope You All Like Them .......


Pyaar nahin karna tha humse,
dillagi to na ki hoti,
ae bewafa beech samundar mein laakar maara,
ek kashti to di hoti.

Har Taraf khamoshi Ka Saaya Hai,


Jise Chahate Hai hum woh ab paraya hai,
Gir Pade hai hum mahobbat ki bhukh se,
Aur log kehate hai ki pikar aaya hai.
Zindagi jaise ek saza si ho gayi hai,
gam ke sagar me is kadar kho gayi hai,
tum aajao wapis yeh gujarish hai meri....
shayaad mujhe tumari aadat si hogayi hai
Dua karte hai hum sar jhukaye ……
Ae dost tu apni manzil ko paaye ……
Agar kabhi teri rahon mein andhera aaye ……
To roshni ke liye khuda hum ko jalaye ……
Yaad aye kabhi, to ankhen num na karna,
Hum chale bhi jaye, to gum na karna,
Ye zaruri nahi, har rishtey ka koi naam ho,
Par dosti ka ehsaas dil se kabhi kum na karna ……

Wade bhi dosto ne kya khub nibhaye,

Is se bhadhkar wafadari ki misaal kya hogi,
Ke maut se pahele dost kafan leaaye

Mili hai saza unse dil laga ne ki,


Nazar lag gayi hamare pyar ko zamane ki,
Kabar se nikle hue dono haath kehte hai,
Aarzoo reh gayi unko gale lagane ki

Jab koi khamosh rehkar bhi sawal kar leta hai ..!!
Duaon ki bhid mein ek dua hamari ……
Jisme mangi hamne har khushi tumhari,
Jab bhi muskurae aap dil se,
Samjho dua Kabul hui hamari ……
Tere pyaar ki gehraie ko sirf maine hi jana hai,
Is bewafaa duniya mein ek tujhe hi apna mana hai,
Tum pe dil ye fida hai, tumhi pe ye marta hai,
Lakh samjhaya is nasamajh ko,
Par tumhise ye ishq karta hai !!
Dil hai diwana, dil ka fasana,
Dilne kaha, dilne suna, dil sochta hai,
Dil chahata hai, dilne tujhe aashiq chuna ……
Cheers,
Radhika

Hi,
Addition to the existing...........
Dost se judai ajeeb si lagati hai,
tuzase baat kiye huye muddat si lagati hai,
jab sochata hu jindagi ke baare mein,
tab teri dosti jaroorat si lagati hai.
Cheers
Ashish

Hi,
well,
Zindagi mein hamesha naye log milenge
Kahin pe zyada to kahi pe kam milenge
Aeitbaar zara soch ke karna
Mumkin nahi har jagah aapko
Humaare jaise dost milenge !

Dil ke dard ko dil todne wala kya jaane
Pyar ke rivaazon ko zamaana kya jaane
Hoti hai kitni taqleef ladki ko pataane mein
Ye ghar par baitha ladki ka baap kya jaane

Do pal ki khushi mili to bhi sahi,
Hum umr bhar gam ke sahaare ji lenge
Kya hua jo hamaari girlfriend nahi
Hum aapki girlfriend ke sahaare ji lenge

Chaand pe kaali ghata chchaati to hogi
Sitaaron pe bhi udaasi chchaati to hogi,
Tum laakh chchupa lo duniya se,
Magar tanhaai mein tumhe humaari yaad aati to hogi
