kidnapping by sardar (Pregnant womans and weak hearted dont read திஸ்)

There was a sardarji who was down on his luck. In order to

raise some money he decided to kidnap a kid and hold him
ransom. He went to a playground, grabbed a kid, took him

behind a tree, and told him, "I've kidnapped you."

Sardarji then wrote a note saying: "I've kidnapped your
Tomorrow morning, put Rs.2,00,000 in a paper bag and put it

beneath the mango tree on the north side of the city

playground". Undersigned: "A sardarji".

Sardarji then pinned the note to the kid's shirt and sent

him home to show it to his parents. The next morning he

checked, and sure enough a paper bag was kept beneath the

mango tree. The boy was sitting next to the bag. Sardarji

opened up the bag and found the Rs.2,00,000 in cash with a

note saying, "How can a sardarji do this to a fellow

sardarji? Take the money, and please leave my son."

Undersigned: "Another sardarji".

Horrible na?

A Nice Joke

A man joined a big Multi National Company as a trainee…..
On his first day, he dialled the kitchen and shouted into the phone:
“Get me a cup of coffee, quickly!”
The voice from the other side responded:
“You fool; you’ve dialled the wrong extension! Do you know who you’re talking to?”
“No” replied the trainee.
“It’s the Managing Director of the company, you idiot!”
The trainee shouted back: “And do you know who YOU are talking to, you IDIOT?”
“No!” replied the Managing Director angrily.
“Thank God!” replied the trainee and put the phone down…..

Ultimate French kiss ever photographed !!

A Leader Should Know How to Manage Failure

(Former President of India APJ Abdul Kalam at Wharton India Economic forum , Philadelphia, March 22,2008)

Question: Could you give an example, from your own experience, of how leaders should manage failure?

Kalam: Let me tell you about my experience. In 1973 I became the project director of India's satellite launch vehicle program, commonly called the SLV-3. Our goal was to put India's "Rohini" satellite into orbit by 1980. I was given funds and human resources -- but was told clearly that by 1980 we had to launch the satellite into space. Thousands of people worked together in scientific and technical teams towards that goal.

By 1979 -- I think the month was August -- we thought we were ready. As the project director, I went to the control center for the launch. At four minutes before the satellite launch, the computer began to go through the checklist of items that needed to be checked. One minute later, the computer program put the launch on hold; the display showed that some control components were not in order. My experts -- I had four or five of them with me -- told me not to worry; they had done their calculations and there was enough reserve fuel. So I bypassed the computer, switched to manual mode, and launched the rocket. In the first stage, everything worked fine. In the second stage, a problem developed. Instead of the satellite going into orbit, the whole rocket system plunged into the Bay of Bengal. It was a big failure.

That day, the chairman of the Indian Space Research Organization, Prof. Satish Dhawan, had called a press conference. The launch was at 7:00 am, and the press conference -- where journalists from around the world were present -- was at 7:45 am at ISRO's satellite launch range in Sriharikota [in Andhra Pradesh in southern India]. Prof. Dhawan, the leader of the organization, conducted the press conference himself. He took responsibility for the failure -- he said that the team had worked very hard, but that it needed more technological support. He assured the media that in another year, the team would definitely succeed. Now, I was the project director, and it was my failure, but instead, he took responsibility for the failure as chairman of the organization.

The next year, in July 1980, we tried again to launch the satellite -- and this time we succeeded. The whole nation was jubilant. Again, there was a press conference. Prof. Dhawan called me aside and told me, "You conduct the press conference today."
I learned a very important lesson that day. When failure occurred, the leader of the organization owned that failure. When success came, he gave it to his team. The best management lesson I have learned did not come to me from reading a book; it came from that experience.
