100th post - Hmm a milestone

Posted by DuDo | | Category: | 9 Gossips

Hi guys dis is my 100th post, I finally decided to make you laugh rather than my philosophies and serious stuffs. These were few funny forwards which i received. Being a management student. I remember this and wish to share with you all.

MANAGEMENT LESSON 1:

A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day. A small rabbit saw the crow, and asked him, "Can I also sit like you and do nothing all day long?" The crow answered: "Sure, why not." So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the crow, and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

Moral of the story is:
To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.......  

MANAGEMENT LESSON 2:

When the body was first made, all the parts wanted to be Boss.
The brain said, "I should be Boss because I control the whole body's responses and functions."
The feet said, " We should be Boss as we carry the brain about and get him to where he wants to go.
" The hands said, "We should be the Boss because we do all the work and earn all the money.
"And so it went on and on with the heart, the lungs and the eyes until finally the asshole spoke up.
All the parts laughed at the idea of the asshole being the Boss.
So the sshole went on strike, blocked itself up and refused to work.
Within a short time the eyes became rossed, the hands clenched, the feet twitched, the heart and lungs began to panic and the brain fevered.
Eventually they all decided that the asshole should be the Boss, so the motion was passed.
All the other parts did all the work while the Boss just sat and passed out the shit!

Moral of the story is:

You don't need brains to be a Boss - any asshole will do

MANAGEMENT LESSON 3:


A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold, the bird froze and fell to the ground in a large field. While it was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on it.
As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, it began to realize how warm it was.
The dung was actually thawing him out!
He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy.
A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate.
Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him!  
Remember here there are 3 morals


a) Not everyone who drops shit on you is your enemy.
b) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.
c) And when you're in deep shit, keep your mouth shut!

Interview with Shaiju Mathew

Posted by DuDo | | Category: | 2 Gossips

Hi guys this is an exclusive interview on the upcoming writer, my friend, my well wisher, more.... read it 1st here. His book is expected to release this September. Hope you all support him!!!

-DuDo


How old were you when you started writing?

I started penning poems and short stories from my schooldays. Hmm maybe I was around 12 – 13 years old.



Why did you choose writing as a career?

I started writing poems and stories when I was a kid but I didn't pursue writing as a career. I started writing articles for few entertainment related magazines and websites as I love our Hindi Film Industry and I used to do that as a hobby. I used to maintain a diary and one day a friend of mine chanced to read one of my old diaries and he said that the situations are so funny and real why dont I share it with the world in the form of a book and thus 'KNOCKED UP' was born. Basically I love weaving stories and I think I am a better story teller now.


What was the inspiration behind your first novel, Knocked Up?


My childhood experiences and the days spent with my friends.


Are the characters in the books based on someone you know or its a fiction?


Its based on the situations that I along with my best friends faced during our growing up days. Few are facts and lots are fiction. On a lighter note I dont want to invite any controversy here (laughs) so I plan to put a disclaimer on the book.


What was the hardest part about writing, Knocked Up?


Nothing. The story was already there in my head when I started writing it just flowed out and in 20 days flat I was ready with the first draft.


Can you describe your entire book in one word, and tell us why did u choose it?


Its difficult to describe the entire book in one word... Let me try... HILLARIOUS or just plain KNOCKEDUP but that's two words... lets remove the space in between to make it one word. Childhood is something which we are blessed with only once and I wanted to relive my childhood days once again and that's why KNOCKED UP took shape. Some people write diaries and some keep scrapbook as memories but I wrote this book so that whenever I feel nostalgic I can read my book.


Tell us something about the book?

KNOCKED UP is a light hearted situational comedy or should I say a entertainer which has every emotion in right doses. It is a feel good story and most of us will definitely identify with the story and situations as most of us would have encountered the same in our life. KNOCKED UP will definitely put a smile on your face and there is no tension or thought provoking message in it. The only message I want to give my readers is 'FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS' and never kill the child in you.


Tell us about the novel's main character ?

There are three main characters and they are as confused about their life as any teenager is and every adult feels that children dont have any tensions in life as they dont have to fend for themselves nor they have to think about anythingelse other than studies but thats not the case. Every teenager is bogged down with a lot of problems and tensions other than studies like love life, career to choose, living upto their parents expectations etc...


Do you have any other projects you're currently working on?

As I said I am a story teller and I have many stories lying in my pandora box (my brain) to be told to the world. I would be coming out with a sequel to KNOCKED UP called KNOCKED UP AGAIN and there are few more drafts lying with me which I would be developing very soon under my publication 'Magic Moments Publications'.



Why did you turn a self publisher? Is it because you didn't find any takers for the book?


No that's not the case. I approached a lot of publishers and I got a lot of positive response from them. I even signed a contract with one of the premier and prominent publication however I felt that they were not able to do justice to my book the way I wanted. Moreover my brother who already has an e-book publishing house was toying with the idea of launching hardbound books to the market. We formed 'Magic Moments' to bring out a series of books covering various genres and we wanted a bestseller to establish our publication in the market so we jointly decided to bring out 'KNOCKED UP' under the Magic Moments flagship to establish our publication as well as promote the book the way we wanted to.


Who are your favorite writers?

I love old English writers like Shakespeare, Jane Austin, William Thackeray, Charles Dickens etc and in Indian writers I love Munshi Premchand, Tagore and Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay. In the current lot I love Chetan Bhagat's work also Ruskin Bond (although he is not from the current lot however his stories are still young and fresh)


What advice would you give to budding writers today?

Follow your dreams there will be many obstacles but you need to stay determined and things will fall in place.


Do you have anything to say to all your readers?


Relive your teenage days through KNOCKED UP

Gravity vs pride!!!

Sir Issac Newton said "What goes up must come down!!!"

But someone asked me  (a very close friend of mine) "Dude I'm no 1 in this world at the moment, Y do i feel m put down always. I have not reached great heights, why do i feel i have come down? N y do people treat me like this?"

DuDo- "Buddy its not you nor your feelings, what has come down, the one who said all this to you has his ego n false pride up at the periphery which is gonna come down any moment"

I'm Not Flawless!!!

Posted by DuDo | | Category: , | 2 Gossips

My brain cells are in a steaming fury,
Flickering like a raging fire.

At times i feel its hard to control,
Intoxicating the world around.


The negative vortex engulfs my mind,
All signs of happiness are torn apart.


The beastly heart forgets to be kind, 
Bursting the world balloon apart with a single dart.


My mind needs a recovery form the steaming fury,
To get back the old BLANK THOUGHTS.


I just figured that I'm not flawless.

My LIFE BITES and LIFE BLEEDS.....

This Too Shall Pass

Posted by DuDo | | Category: , | 0 Gossips

DuDo was very depressed about his life.. But one day at his philosophy class his sensei told him a story. A Story about great KING SOLOMON who inspired him to move on.

It is dedicated to the extremely depressed souls and happy ones too. :)

The story goes like this:

One day Solomon decided to humble Benaiah ben Yehoyada, his most trusted minister. He said to him, "Benaiah, there is a certain ring that I want you to bring to me. I wish to wear it for Sukkot which gives you six months to find it."
"If it exists anywhere on earth, your majesty," replied Benaiah, "I will find it and bring it to you, but what makes the ring so special?"

"It has magic powers," answered the king. "If a happy man looks at it, he becomes sad, and if a sad man looks at it, he becomes happy." Solomon knew that no such ring existed in the world, but he wished to give his minister a little taste of humility.

Spring passed and then summer, and still Benaiah had no idea where he could find the ring. On the night before Sukkot, he decided to take a walk in one of he poorest quarters of Jerusalem. He passed by a merchant who had begun to set out the day's wares on a shabby carpet. "Have you by any chance heard of a magic ring that makes the happy wearer forget his joy and the broken-hearted wearer forget his sorrows?" asked Benaiah.
He watched the grandfather take a plain gold ring from his carpet and engrave something on it. When Benaiah read the words on the ring, his face broke out in a wide smile.

(DuDo's this too shall pass ring)

That night the entire city welcomed in the holiday of Sukkot with great festivity. "Well, my friend," said Solomon, "have you found what I sent you after?" All the ministers laughed and Solomon himself smiled.

To everyone's surprise, Benaiah held up a small gold ring and declared, "Here it is, your majesty!" As soon as Solomon read the inscription, the smile vanished from his face. The jeweler had written three Hebrew letters on the gold band: _gimel, zayin, yud_, which began the words "_Gam zeh ya'avor_" -- "This too shall pass."

At that moment Solomon realized that all his wisdom and fabulous wealth and tremendous power were but fleeting things, for one day he would be nothing but dust.



Lesson That DuDo learned:

It means that when your heart is broken, and you feel like you've been punched in the stomach... this moment will soon be in the past and you will find relief in the next moment. Basically, no matter how bad things get, we as human beings have the opportunity to take something from the situation and move forward. We can make positive, healthy choices and overcome difficulties, pain, loss, sadness, grief, negativity, hurt... anything.... and we can have tomorrow. As long as we are alive, then we have the opportunity to turn anything around with the right attitude and course of action. Whether you have a terrible flu; a really bad day at work; or problems knee deep - "This too shall pass" is a powerful mantra that can empower and transport a horrible moment in time into something hopeful and dynamic.

Nothing lasts forever, even misery or joy.
