Are you smarter than four years old ?


Which way is the bus below travelling ?

To the left or to the right? 


Can't make up your mind?

Look carefully at the picture again. 

scroll down……………

Still don't know?

Primary school children
 were shown this picture and asked the same question.

90% of them gave this answer:

"The bus is travelling to the right."

When asked, "Why do you think the bus is travelling to the right?"

They answered:

"Because you can't see the door to get on the bus." 

How do you feel now???

I know, me too.

Concert - Maali and Ramani (Flute)

.....that he who eats till he is sick must fast till he is well. 

That is a Hebrew proverb, and it has to do with a lot
more than food. Look to see what behaviors you are
indulging in over and over again that are clearly not
serving you. Then, go on a "bad habit diet."

I mean it. I'm not kidding, Pick one bad habit, one
bad behavior, a day for five days. You can do this.
Stop doing the stuff you're doing that obviously
does not serve you--or others.

This friendly "nudge" came from your Self, you know...

Blogger IyerThinksYouAreStupid said...

Good collection. Have downloaded all that is of consequence therein.

Some of the older ones appear to be missing something up there.

You can keep listening to these over and over and over again by one self, without caring about anything or anybody in the world.

Just a thought.

A glaring omission that will hopefully be remedied.

Kindly upload O.S. Thyagarajan concerts if you have any (the less idle chatter involved the better).

As Semmangudi once said in a concert after observing people leaving during the thani, "We have learnt so many things from the white people - proper concert decorum can also be learned." (as narrated to my mother by TRS).

stockholm-based visiondivision conducted a week-long workshop at the politecnico di milano,
in milan, italy, in which guest professors conducted an exploration for students to consider
the impact of the fast-paced lifestyle on ecology and environmental issues in architecture.
the result was 'the patient gardener', a structure consisting of ten japanese cherry trees which is
the main building material for the construction of a two-story retreat. bending, twisting,
pruning and grafting will be used to control and develop the growth of the building over time.
the trees, chosen because of the time of year and good suitability for the project,
were planted around in an 8 meter diameter ring. 
to assist in the bending of the trees, a temporary tower stands in the center with ropes attached to the plants,
pulling them gently to create a bend in the trunk as it grows. the stairs, handrails and safety features
will be grafted from fruit trees, generating food simultaneously.  
a simple maintenance plan and instructs will be passed on to future gardeners. the final result can be
enjoyed on the campus within 80 years.

Can the exams be conducted like this ?

Friday, November 25, 2011

May be a bit long, but do not fail to read !

Will this control Inflation? Excellent examples.......please let all of your friends know this

Nice Logic - It Will Work !!
 A man eats two eggs each morning for breakfast. When he goes to the Kirana store he pays Rs. 12 a dozen. Since a dozen eggs won't last a week he normally buys two dozens at a time. One day while buying eggs he notices that the price has risen to Rs. 16. The next time he buys groceries, eggs are Rs. 22 a dozen.
When asked to explain the price of eggs the store owner says, "The price has gone up and I have to raise my price accordingly" . This store buys 100 dozen eggs a day. He checked around for a better price and all the distributors have raised their prices. The distributors have begun to buy from the huge egg farms. The small egg farms have been driven out
of business. The huge egg farms sell 100,000 dozen eggs a day to distributors. With no competition, they can set the price as they see fit. The distributors then have to raise their prices to the grocery stores. And on and on and on.
As the man kept buying eggs the price kept going up. He saw the big egg trucks delivering 100 dozen eggs each day. Nothing changed there. He checked out the huge egg farms and found they were selling 100,000 dozen eggs to the distributors daily. Nothing had changed but the price of eggs.
Then week before Diwali the price of eggs shot up to Rs. 40 a dozen. Again he asked the grocery owner why and was told, "Cakes and baking for the holiday". The huge egg farmers know there will be a lot of baking going on and more eggs will be used. Hence, the price of eggs goes up. Expect the same thing at Christmas and other times when family cooking, baking, etc. happen.
This pattern continues until the price of eggs is Rs. 60 a dozen. The man says, " There must be something we can do about the price of eggs". He starts talking to all the people in his town and they decide to stop buying eggs. This didn't work because everyone needed eggs.
Finally, the man suggested only buying what you need. He ate 2 eggs a day. On the way home from work he would stop at the grocery and buy two eggs. Everyone in town started buying 2 or 3 eggs a day.  The grocery store owner began complaining that he had too many eggs in his cooler. He told the distributor that he didn't need any eggs.
Maybe wouldn't need any all week.
The distributor had eggs piling up at his warehouse. He told the huge egg farms that he didn't have any room for eggs would not need any for at least two weeks.
At the egg farm, the chickens just kept on laying eggs. To relieve the pressure, the huge egg farm told the distributor that they could buy the eggs at a lower price.
The distributor said, " I don't have the room for the %$&^*&% eggs even if they were free". The distributor told the grocery store owner that he would lower the price of the eggs if the store would start buying again.
The grocery store owner said, "I don't have room for more eggs. The customers are only buying 2 or 3 eggs at a time. Now if you were to drop the price of eggs back down to the original price, the customers would start buying by the dozen again".
The distributors sent that proposal to the huge egg farmers but the egg farmers liked the price they were getting for their eggs but, those chickens just kept on laying. Finally, the egg farmers lowered the price of their eggs. But only a few paisa.
The customers still bought 2 or 3 eggs at a time. They said, "when the price of eggs gets down to where it was before, we will start buying by the dozen."
Slowly the price of eggs started dropping. The distributors had to slash their prices to make room for the eggs coming from the egg farmers.
The egg farmers cut their prices because the distributors wouldn't buy at a higher price than they were selling eggs for. Anyway, they had full warehouses and wouldn't need eggs for quite a while. And those chickens kept on laying.
Eventually, the egg farmers cut their prices because they were throwing away eggs they couldn't sell.
The distributors started buying again because the eggs were priced to where the stores could afford to sell them at the lower price. And the customers starting buying by the dozen again.
Now, transpose this analogy to the gasoline industry.
What if everyone only bought Rs 200.00 worth of Petrol each time they pulled to the pump? The dealer's tanks would stay semi full all the time. The dealers wouldn't have room for the gas coming from the huge tanks. The tank farms wouldn't have room for the petrol coming from the refining plants. And the refining plants wouldn't have room for the oil being off loaded from the huge tankers coming from the oil fiends.
Just Rs 200.00 each time you buy gas. Don't fill up the tank of your car. Don't drive to places where you can walk. Don't drive to places where you are just driving because you have a vehicle to spare. You may have to stop for gas twice a week, but the price should come down.
Think about it.
Also, don't buy anything else at the fuel station; don't give them any more of your hard earned money than what you spend on gas, until the prices come down..."
...just think of this concept for a while.
............ ......please pass this concept around....reaching out to the masses ...the world .....

I think it can be done and may work. Today I filled petrol only for Rs.500/- instead of filling the tank. If everybody starts to do like this, who knows it may happen.

wonderful idea!. The idea worked well for eggs as it is a perishable good and cant be stored for longer periods given the poor state of supply chain management in India and people have alternatives for eggs.Whereas petrol is an essential commodity and there is no substitute for it..but whats the harm in trying. lets try...

Mehdi Hassan Ghazals - 14

Life can begin at 50/60 ...70/80

3. Money is important: 

Money is essential for meeting the basic necessities of life, keeping good 
health and earning family respect and security. Don't spend beyond your 
means even for your children. You have lived for them through out and it is 
time you enjoyed a harmonious life with your spouse. If your children are 
grateful they should take care of you. But never take it for granted. 

4. Relaxation and recreation: 

The most relaxing and recreating forces are healthy and religious attitudes, 
good sleep, music and laughter. Have faith in God, learn to sleep well, 
love good music, and see the fun side of life. 

5. Time is precious: 

It is almost like holding a horse's reins. When they are in your hands, 
you can control them. Imagine that every day you are born again. Yesterday is 
a payed cheque. Tomorrow is a promissory note. Today is ready cash. 
use it profitably. Live this moment. 

6. Change is the only permanent thing: 

We should accept change — it is inevitable. The only way to make sense 
out of change is to join the dance. Change has brought about many pleasant 
things. We should be happy that our children are blessed. 

7. Enlightened selfishness: 

All of us are basically selfish. Whatever we do, we expect something in 
return. We should definitely be grateful to those who stood by us. But, our 
focus should be on the internal satisfaction and happiness we derive by doing 
good to others, without expecting anything in return. 

8. Forget and forgive: 

Don't be bothered too much about others' mistakes. We are not spiritual 
enough to show our other cheek when we are slapped on one cheek. But, for the sake 
of our own health and happiness, let us forgive and forget them. Otherwise, 
we will only be increasing our BP. 

9. Everything has a reason; a purpose: 

Take life as it comes. Accept yourself as you are and also accept others 
for what they are. Everybody is unique and right in their own ways. 

10. Overcome the fear of death: 

We all know that one day we have to leave this world. Still we are afraid 
of death. We think that our spouse and children will be unable to withstand 
our loss. But, the truth is that no one is going to die for you; they may be 
depressed for some time. Time heals everything and they will carry on. 

Regardless How Far The Journey Is OR How Capable We Are, We Do Our Best To 
Reach Our Goal. This Is Perseverance At Its Best ...

<"If your children are
grateful they should take care of you"> ????

This is the most sadistic attitude a parent can have.

If someone believes in this, they have to ask to themselves -> Did parents have children just so that there will be someone to take care of them when parents are old?

Children should take care of parents out of their own decision. Elders can start to conduct themselves worthy of such a decision.

Concert - T.N. Seshagopalan

....that the fastest way to learn something is to teach it.

Do not wait, therefore, until you "know all about it" or
have "mastered" what you wish to share before you
begin to share it.

The world needs more of what you wish to learn
more of. So teach. Share. Help others. And do not
worry so much about what you "don't know." Worry
about what you don't do. Because you are robbing us
while you are waiting to become an "expert."
