fruit which constitutes the main drug. Amla is an unusual fruit as it
contains gamut of tastes, except the salty taste. With sourness as the
foremost taste , it is sweet, astringent bitter and pungent too.

The fresh fruit contains more than 80% of water besides protein,
carbohydrates, fibre, minerals and vitamins Minerals and vitamins
mainly include cacium, phosphorus, iron, carotene, Vitamin C and B

ரிலாக்ஸ் ப்ளீஸ்

A man dies and goes to hell.

There he finds that there is a different hell for each country.

He goes to the German hell and asks, "What do they do here?"

He told, "First they put you in an electric chair for an hour.

Then they lay you on a bed of nails for another hour.

Then the German devil comes in and beats you for the rest of the day."

The man does not like the sound of that at all, so he moves on.

He checks out the USA hell as well as the Russian hell and many more.

He discovers that they are all more or less the same as the German hell.

Then he comes to the Indian hell and finds that there is a long line of
people waiting to get in.

Amazed, he asks, "What do they do here?"

He told, "First they put you in an electric chair for an hour.

Then they lay you on a bed of nails for another hour.

Then the Indian devil comes in and beats you for the rest of the day.

"But that is exactly the same as all the other hells - why are there so
many people waiting to get in?"







Because maintenance is so bad that the electric chair does not work,

someone has stolen all the nails from the bed


the devil is a former Govt servant,

so he comes in, signs the register and then goes to the canteen!!!!!!

Relax please..

Number One Idiot of 2008

I am a medical student currently doing a rotation in toxicology at the
poison control center. Today, this woman called in very upset because
she caught her little daughter eating ants. I quickly reassured her that the
ants are not harmful and there would be no need to bring her daughter
into the hospital. She calmed down and at the end of the conversation
happened to mention that she gave her daughter some ant poison to eat
in order to kill the ants.

I told her that she better bring her daughter in to the emergency room
right away.


Number Two Idiot of 2008

Early this year, some Boeing employees on the airfield decided to steal
a life raft from one of the 747s.

They were successful in getting it out of the plane and home. Shortly
after they took it for a float on the river, they noticed a Coast Guard
helicopter coming toward them. It turned out that the chopper was homing
in on the emergency locater beacon that activated when the raft was

They are no longer employed at Boeing.


Number Three Idiot of 2008

A man, wanting to rob a downtown Bank of America, walked into the Branch
and wrote this, 'Put all your muny in this bag.' While standing in line,
waiting to give his note to the teller, he began to worry that someone
had seen him write the note and might call the police before he reached the
teller's window. So he left the Bank of America and crossed the street
to the Wells Fargo Bank.

After waiting a few minutes in line, he handed his note to the Wells
Fargo teller. She read it and, surmising from his spelling errors that he
wasn't the brightest light in the harbor, told him that she could not accept
his stickup note because it was written on a Bank of America deposit slip
and that he would either have to fill out a Wells Fargo deposit slip or go
back to Bank of America.

Looking somewhat defeated, the man said, 'OK' and left. He was arrested
a few minutes later, as he was waiting in line back at Bank of America.


Number Four Idiot of 2008

A guy walked into a little corner store with a shotgun and demanded all
of the cash from the cash drawer.  After the cashier put the cash in a bag,
the robber saw a bottle of Scotch that he wanted behind the counter on
the shelf. He told the cashier to put it in the bag as well, but the cashier
refused and said, 'Because I don't believe you are over 21.' The robber
said he was, but the clerk still refused to give it to him because she
didn't believe him. At this point, the robber took his driver's license
out of his wallet and gave it to the clerk.

The clerk looked it over and agreed that the man was in fact over 21 and
she put the Scotch in the bag.

The robber then ran from the store with his loot.

The cashier promptly called the police and gave the name and address of
the robber that she got off the license. They arrested the robber two hours


Idiot Number Five of 2008

A pair of Michigan robbers entered a record shop nervously waving

The first one shouted, 'Nobody move!' When his partner moved, the
startled first bandit shot him.


Idiot Number Six of 2008

Arkansas: Seems this guy wanted some beer pretty badly. He decided that
he'd just throw a cinder block through a liquor store window, grab some
booze, and run.

So he lifted the cinder block and heaved it over his head at the window.

The cinder block bounced back knocking him unconscious. It seems the
liquor store window was made of Plexi-Glass. The whole event was caught on


Idiot Number Seven of 2008

I live in a semi-rural area (Weyauwega, Wisconsin). We recently had a
new neighbor call the local township administrative office to request the
removal of the Deer Crossing sign on our road.

The reason: 'Too many deer are being hit by cars out here! - I don't
think this is a good place for them to be crossing anymore.'
