The other day I switched on some Tamil channel and some movie trailer was been shown. A stunt scene was on and the hero of the movie was handling at least 2 dozen fighters, the way Neo handles the bad guys in The Matrix. In Matrix the base was such that one can believe and the way it is shown one can take things. Guy in the movie was a police officer and I later also found out that it was based on some true story. Now there is a limit to exaggeration. I am sure the name of the movie was 2 dozen gangsters and a police officer.
It’s been some ten odd days since a woman working in a call centre was killed by some drunken youths. They ran their car over her two wheeler and she died on the spot but the news is still very hot and somewhere or the other there is a mention of this incident in the media even today. Even the Salman Khan case in which he ran over a few people, was not hyped so much, then why is this? Is it because Chennai is so small and dead that even the smallest of the incident seems to be hot and happening. This was not the first time something like this has happened in the city. With all this over, now the only question people here asking are who is to be blamed for this loss of life? Is it the pubs and bars which are open till late night or is it the police which could have been more vigilant and the incident could have been prevented or is it the youths who could have behaved more responsibly?
Why Lawyers should never ask a witness a question if they aren’t prepared for the answer…..
In a trial, a Southern small town prosecuting attorney called his first witness to the stand. The witness was a grand motherly, elderly woman.
He approached her and asked, “Mrs.Jones, do you know me?”
Jeppiar, the chairman of Satyabama Engineering College and some other colleges (in Chennai) was a police constable. He was the right hand of MGR and due to his political power he started that engineering college. He named it after MGR’s mother Satyabama. Now, enjoy these English sentences from Jeppiar . Friends they are extemely funny and you might burst into laughter. These are a few comedies about Jeppiar. Mind u. These are facts!!!!! Nice to read…read it fully..u will really enjoy it.
Imagine India’s top cabinet ministers debating on a high school topic – Advantages of IT. One being the most “respected” Mr. Laloo Prasad Yadav (You guessed it correctly he was taking against) and the IT minister Mr. Dayanidhi Maran. Now imagine the scene where one of them talking in hindi, while the other who doesn’t even understands hindi’s h. I believe it’s a great shame for the cabinet headed by one of the most respected (this time I am not being sarcastic) leaders of the Indian politics to discuss the most trivial issue on this earth. Now, didn’t they find anything better topic to debate on?
A father put his three year old daughter to bed, told her a story, and listened to her prayers which she ended by saying, “God bless Mommy, God bless daddy, God bless grandma and good-bye grandpa.”
The father asked, “Why did you say good-bye grandpa?”
The little girl said, “I don’t know daddy, it just seemed like the thing to do.”
The next day grandpa died.
