நீங்களும் அதில் ஒருவரா?.

One day, an old man was walking along the beach in the early morning and
noticed the tide had washed thousands of starfish up on the shore. Up ahead
in the distance he spotted a boy who appeared to be gathering up the
starfish, and one by one tossing them back into the ocean.

He approached the boy and asked him why he spent so much energy doing what
seemed to be a waste of time.

The boy replied, "If these starfish are left out here like this they will
bake in the sun, and by this afternoon they will all be dead."

The old man gazed out as far as he could see and responded, "But, there
must be hundreds of miles of beach and thousands of starfish. You can't
possibly rescue all of them. What difference is throwing a few back going
to make anyway?"

The boy then held up the starfish he had in his hand and replied, "It's
sure going to make a lot of difference to this one!"

The boy tossed that starfish into the water. He then looked intently at the
old man and said "I will save as many as I can".

The old man had no reply. He was really ashamed of his own attitude. He
stood speechless for a while. Then slowly he picked up a starfish and threw
it into the water, joining the boy in his efforts. The boy gave him a
gentle smile and soon both of them were silently tossing one starfish after
another into the water.

Soon, the boy and the old man saw that they were not alone. Other people
who had come to the beach for a walk noticed them both working diligently
to save the starfish. One by one, people started joining in the effort.

As the sun rose higher in the sky, hundreds of people silently worked to
save the starfish. Young people, old people, rich people, poor people all
joined hands in the noble task.

Amazingly within a couple of hours, the beach was almost clear of starfish.
As the last starfish was thrown into the sea, a thunderous cheer
spontaneously arose from the people. Each one of them felt they had done
something important, something that made a difference. They cheered and
hugged each other. Some of them even exchanged names and numbers and
promised to stay in touch.

Nothing is impossible if we work together. But someone needs to be bold
enough to take the first step. Many other will follow. Even one person's
determination and conviction can change the world.

Are you the ONE??????

Take the first step in CREATING your IDEAL WORLD today and you will see the
WORLD will follow??

WAKE UP and make a difference.

பிறக்கப்போகும் குழந்தை எப்படி இருக்கும்?.

BabyMaker v.1.0 - How Will Your Baby Look Like?

No need to wait for nine months to see your baby! All you need is two pictures. Just put pictures of you two into BabyMaker, and see what your baby will look like in just a moment. Impress your friends and family with ‘what if’ pictures of your possible babies made with just about anyone. You only need two facial photos (passport-style will do) to generate a realistic image of a baby. And we’re not talking about cartoon-style pictures or a still-morph picture frozen in the middle of a transformation. You’ll get a real face of a young human with unique facial features that resemble features of both ‘parents’.

Can’t believe this? Just ask your parents for a couple of pictures, put them through BabyMaker, and see your own face in the end! The science of fortune telling is brought to perfection with BabyMaker. Make a baby with anyone! Entertain your friends by ‘marrying’ them to each other, or have fun using pictures of celebrities as one or both parents. Print or email the resulting images for even more fun! Unlike virtually all competitors, BabyMaker does not simply morph one face into another. Instead, it thoroughly analyzes characteristic features of the two faces using face detection scientific algorithms, and carefully re-creates a baby’s by carefully mixing different features of the parents’ faces. The technologies used in BabyMaker are so advanced that they can easily produce a high-quality color image of a baby even if the quality of the originals is far from perfect. Just throw a couple of old photos of your grandparents to see this in action! Black-and-white, scratched, faded or retouched photos will do if they represent a real face. If you are using images from the Internet, low-resolution or heavily compressed pictures are fine if the faces are still recognizable.

Enjoy peace of mind when you’re away from your baby!

BabyMonitor is a program that transforms your cell phone to a baby monitor. Simple place your phone in a room where your child is sleeping and when he wakes up the program calls to a number of your choice. This number can be as cell as standard land line number.

Author told why he developed this program. Earlier when he was traveling he often forgot his baby monitor or a charger for it and had to stay by the baby’s bedside. But the main reason was that he couldn’t use his baby monitor in his village near an airport because of radio noise.

நேரமின்மையால் எத்தனை இழக்கிறோம் ?

Everybody wants to live to 100, but do we really have 'time to live'?

A man stood at a metro station in Washington DC and started to play
the violin; it was a cold January morning. He played six Bach pieces
for about 45 minutes. During that time, since it was rush hour, it was
calculated that thousand seven hundred people went through the
station, most of them on their way to work.

Three minutes went by and a middle aged man noticed there was musician
playing. He slowed his pace and stopped for a few seconds and then
hurried up to meet his schedule. A minute later, the violinist
received his first dollar tip: a woman threw the money in the till and
without stopping continued to walk. A few minutes later, someone
leaned against the wall to listen to him, but the man looked at his
watch and started to walk again. Clearly he was late for work.

The one who paid the most attention was a 3 year old boy. His mother
tagged him along, hurried but the kid stopped to look at the
violinist. Finally the mother pushed hard and the child continued to
walk turning his head all the time. This action was repeated by
several other children. All the parents, without exception, forced
them to move on.

In the 45 minutes the musician played, only 6 people stopped and
stayed for a while. About 20 gave him money but continued to walk
their normal pace.. He collected $32. When he finished playing and
silence took over, no one noticed it. No one applauded, nor was there

The exact analysis would betray the fact that this was a social experiment.

This is a real story. No one knew this at the time but the violinist
was Joshua Bell, one of the best musicians in the world. He played one
of the most intricate pieces ever written with a violin worth 3.5
million dollars. Two days before his playing in the subway, Joshua
Bell sold out at a theatre in Boston and the seats averaged $100.

Joshua Bell playing incognito in the metro station was organised by
the Washington Post as part of a social experiment about perception,
taste and priorities of people.

The question tested were:
* In a common place environment, at an inappropriate hour,
do we perceive beauty? Yes/no
* Do we stop to appreciate it? Yes/no
* Do we recognise the talent in an unexpected context? Yes/no

Point to Ponder:
If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best
musicians in the world playing the best music ever written,
how many other things are we missing in our life?

A kid was playing with his newly bought play train. After every turn was completed the kid stopped the train and shouted,

'Station aa gaya hai! Jis ULLU KE PATHEY ko utarna hai utar jaey!'

Then he let the train go on the round and stopped it again at the same place. He shouted,

'Station aa gaya hai! Jis ULLU KE PATHEY ko utarna hai utar jaey!'

And so it went for sometime. Everytime the train stopped the kid would scream the same sentence. His Dad, sitting near him, got a little worried about the kid using bad language. He took the train away from him and scolded the child, 'Don't talk like that!'

The kid sat silently for sometime and Dad couldn't bear to see the sad innocent face. He returned the train back to him saying, 'Now son, don't talk like that again.'

The kid started playing. The train took the same turn and stopped and the kid shouted,

'Station aa gaya hai! Jis ULLU KE PATHE ko utarna hai utar jaey! Pehley se hee ek ULLU KE PATHEY ke waja se train aadha ghanta late ho gaee hai!'

Some Moral Story...

A water bearer in India had two large pots, each hung on the end of a pole which he carried across his neck. One of the pots was perfectly made and never leaked. The other pot had a crack in it and by the time the water bearer reached his master's house it had leaked much of it's water and was only half full. 

For a full two years this went on daily, with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots full of water to his master's house. Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments. But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it was able to accomplish only half of what it had been made to do. 

After two years of what it perceived to be a bitter failure, it spoke to the water bearer one day by the stream. "I am ashamed of myself, and I want to apologize to you." "Why?" asked the bearer. "What are you ashamed of?" "I have been able, for these past two years, to deliver only half my load because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your master's house. Because of my flaws, you have to do all of this work, and you don't get full value from your efforts," the pot said.

The water bearer felt sorry for the old cracked pot, and in his compassion he said, "As we return to the master's house, I want you to notice the beautiful flowers along the path."

Indeed, as they went up the hill, the old cracked pot took notice of the sun warming the beautiful wild flowers on the side of the path, and this cheered it some. But at the end of the trail, it still felt bad because it had leaked out half its load, and so again the pot apologized to the bearer for its failure.

The bearer said to the pot, "Did you notice that there were flowers only on your side of your path, but not on the other pot's side? That's because I have always known about your flaw, and I took advantage of it. I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back from the stream, you've watered them. For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate my master's table. Without you being just the way you are, he would not have this beauty to grace his house." 

Each of us has our own unique flaws. We're all cracked pots. But if we will allow it, God will use our flaws to grace his table. In God's great economy, nothing goes to waste. Don't be afraid of your flaws. Acknowledge them, and you too can be the cause of beauty. Know that in our weakness we find our strength.

There are a few things that can be done in times of grave emergencies. Your mobile phone can actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival. Check out the things that you can do with it:

FIRST Emergency

The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112. If you find yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile; network and there is an emergency, dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked. Try it out.

SECOND have you locked your keys in the car?

Does your car have remote keyless entry? This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone: If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on their mobile phone from your cell phone.

Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock. This saves someone from having to drive your keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other 'remote' for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk).

THIRD Hidden Battery Power

Imagine your mobile battery is very low. To activate, press the keys *3370# Your mobile will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you charge your mobile next time.

FOURTH How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?

To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following digits on your phone: * # 0 6 #

A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. When your phone get stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless. You probably won't get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.

A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though they were a very large mammal their throat was very small. The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale. The teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human; it was impossible. The little girl said, 'When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah' The teacher asked, 'What if Jonah went to hell?' The little girl replied, 'Then you ask him.'

An Amish boy and his father were visiting a nearby mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny silver walls that moved apart and back together again by themselves.
The lad asked, "What is this, father?"

The father (having never seen an elevator) responded, "I have no idea what it is."

While the boy and his father were watching wide-eyed, an old lady in a wheelchair rolled up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched as small circles lit up above the walls.

The walls opened up again and a beautiful twenty-four-year-old woman stepped out.

The father looked at his son anxiously and said, "Go get your mother."

A young boy about eight years old came through the checkout with a big box of laundry detergent. The grocer was curious. Why was the young fella buying such a big box of soap?
'It's not for laundry,' said the boy. 'I'm going to wash my dog.'
'You shouldn't wash your dog in this stuff,' said the grocer. 'It's very powerful. He'll get sick. It might even kill him.'
But the boy was not to be stopped. He paid and walked out with the detergent.
A week later the boy came back.
How's the dog, asked the grocer.
'Oh, he died,' said the boy.
The grocer was sorry, but he added, 'I did warn you not to use the detergent on your dog.'
'I don't think it was the detergent that killed him,' said the lad.
'What was it then?'
'I think it was the spin cycle.'

his predicament. Shortly, he received this reply, "For
HEAVEN'S SAKE, Dad, don't dig up that garden, that's
where I buried the GUNS!"

soldiers showed up and dug up the entire garden,
without finding any guns.
Confused, the old man wrote another note to his son
telling him what happened, and asking him what to do
His son's reply was: "Now plant your potatoes, Dad.
This is the best I can do for you at this time."
