khusboo is in news again, but this time she has sued a magazine called MAXIM. the magazine has published an obscene picture, that has been morphed with her face, that itself is a shameful thing to do and the atrocity did not stop there, they mentioned that it is hundred percent fake. what kind of joke is this? are cine stars not entitled to some respect? these kind of actions degrades the press industry. they jus do anything in the name of freedom. it is high time some kind of censorship is brought. i have seen cartoons depicting pictures of actors and actresses in humiliating ways in weekly magazines, but this is too much. In her interview regarding this issue in a news channel kushboo said that the people from that mag called her and said that they had done such a thing ,but it has been taken care of by mentioning that its a fake one. she rightly replied to them that if they consider that publishing such pictures and mentioning that its a fake takes care of everything, then why dont they do the same thing with the women members of their family. she is right and people with self respect should support her for this cause. can u guess how this matter can be used in a highly shameful manner to publicise the circulation of a paper, then go and get tamil murasu(24th), bearing the headlines that cries " kushboovin aabaasa padam"(kushboo's obscene photo) .

STOP MAKING CIGARATTES

This is what sharukh had to say when he was asked about the ban of smoking in cinemas. he said in an interview, that many things in cinema like dancing on the roof of a train, dangerous stunts, jumping from heights etc., are dangerous, why only smoking?? if really the health ministry is so health conscious, stop making cigarattes in india(which is practically very impossible,i heard that in some country that cigarattes cost very much,may be we can apply that here, if the govt is really against smoking). i dont think this is a responsible answer given by a person, who is a famous idol, who has got a great number of fans,following each and every action of his in cinema. i agree that he got fed up answering this question for many a times, but will he blame the govt alone, when he finds his son starts smoking or will he advise him to stop it. being come to public life, that too in a field where people identify themselves with him and follow his actions, he must be more responsible in his stand. he might have atleast answered that he will try to avoid such scenes in future, not only smoking but also scenes involving alcohol, dangerous and illogical stunts(this applies to all cine actors).

SETTING A RECORD

The PWD Minister Mr. Paneerselvam announced about the retail sale of a product which has broken a 22 year old record in our state.

He says that after the govt took over the sales, the revenue collection stood at Rs. 4,820 crores, thats a sale of 22 lakh cases.

He also says that there has been no population explosion in between which implies that the product is popularised a lot. He also alleges that the reason for the less collection during the past years when it was under private control is that the money was going in other ways during the last 20 years.

Guess what was he talking about ????
"TASMAC LIQUOR"

"kudi,
kudipavanin kudalai kedukkum,

THE BOOK FAIR 2006

The Annual Chennai Book Fair is worth a place to visit for the book lovers.
I have been visiting the fair regularly. I went to the fair yesterday and bought some good collection of books.

The arrangements have been made in a good way when compared to the
previous years. The practice of book reading has increased among youngsters and children, as i can see more number of them in the fair.

There are several stalls that sell books for TNPCEE,IIT,GATE exams and solved Q&A books for tenth and plus two classes, which are selling like hot cakes. My brother who is in tenth class, also bought some of theses books. Though i can find many students buy these books, i doubt whether they really go thro these books (as my grandma told my bro "books vangarthu perusilla, atha padikanum")

Another very interesting thing is the platform book vendors outside the campus, where u can find any book under the sun. Most of the English fiction novels are sold at a very low rate as fifty rupees (duplicate copies actually).Each of those shops had the copies of the latest Da vinci code , Angels and Demons.

One thing i noticed was there were cell phones ringing everywhere, guess which ringtone is the most heard one, " SUTTUM VIZHI SUDARE".

I had the chance to see writer Anuradha Ramanan and Manushya puthiran of Uyirmai Padipagam (but not a chance to talk to them).

The best time to visit the stalls is during the day time (from 11am to 3pm), after that crowds throng the stalls and all u can see the heads and not the books.

BEWARE

The CNN IBN news channel showed an exclusive news item that was rather shocking. The sedatives which are used in operation theaters at hospitals can be obtained from medical shops without prescriptions,(now thats not a news actually bcos we know that medical shops are not very strict in giving medicines only prescribed), but the shocking news is that this particular sedatives have been used as tools by the rapists. they jus add this sedative in any drink and when taken ,the victim becomes unconsious and they are not aware whats happening to them.
The news reporter went to some shops where she easily obtained those sedatives(which are not to be sold without prescription)very easily and the sad and shocking thing was that one of the shop owner did not even know that she is selling a sedative.
Actually i got a mail forwarded to me regarding this few days go , i am posting it here. I hope that the govt make strict rules regarding this practice of selling medicines without proper prescription . it is also the responsiblity of us, the public to stop practising self medication(thats jus buying medicines directly from the medical shop)



SHOCKING TRUE STORY

A woman at a Gas nightclub (Mumbai) on Saturday night was taken b y 5 men, who according to hospital and police reports, gang raped her before dumping her at Busstand Mumbai. Unable to remember the events of the evening, tests later confirmed the repeat rapes along with traces of rohypnol in her blood.

Rohypnol, date rape drug is an essentially a small sterilization pill. The drug is now being used by rapists at parties to rape AND sterilize their victims. All they have to do is drop it into the girl's drink. The girl can't remember a thing the next morning, of! all that had taken place the night before. Rohypnol, which dissolves in drinks just as easily, is such that the victim doesn't conceive from the rape and the rapist needn't worry about having a paternity test identifying him months later. The Drug's affects ARE NOT TEMPORARY - they are PERMANENT.

Any female that takes it WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO CONCEIVE . The weasels can get this drug from anyone who is in the vet school or any university. It's that easy, and Rohypnol is about to break out big on campuses everywhere. Believe it or not, there are even sites on the Internet telling people how to use it.

Please forward this to everyone you know, especially girls.

Girls, be careful when you're out and don't leave your drink unattended. (added - Buy your own drinks, ensure bottles or cans received are unopened or sealed; don't even taste someone else's drink) There has already been a report in Singapore of girls drink been Spiked by
Rohypnol. Please make the effort to forward this to everyone you know.

For guys - Pls inform all your female ! friends and relatives, remember you also have sisters.

2099 இல் ஒரு நாள்

காலையில் உலகத்தில் விழித்து,
மாத்திரை உண்டு,
ஆக்ஸிஜன் ட்யூப் அணிந்து,
பள்ளிக்குச் சென்றால்,
ரோபோக்கள் பாடம் நடத்த,
நாங்கள் பிரம்படிக்காக ஏங்கினோம்..
மாலையில் மறுபடி குழாய் அணிந்து,
காற்று வாகனத்தில் பறந்து,
நிலவை அடைந்தால்,
அங்கேயோ காதலர் கூட்டம்
கம்புயூட்டர் தீர்ப்புப் படி
பொய் காதல் சொல்ல,
நாங்கள் ரோஜாவிற்கு ஏங்கினோம்.
இப்படி முகமூடி அணிந்து,
பொய் முகத்தோடு வாழும்,
2099 விட,
1999 தான்
மகிழ்ச்சிக் காலம்.


I wrote this poem when i was in college back in 1999. Though its not a very good one, i jus consider this one as a good try. i would also post the one which was published in my college magazine in my next post.

IMPACT OF JOB-CHANGE


A taxi passenger tapped the driver on the shoulder to ask him a
question. The driver screamed, lost control of the car, nearly hit a
bus, went up on the footpath, and stopped centimeters from a shop
window.

For a second everything went quiet in the cab, then the driver said:
"Look mate, don't ever do that
again. You scared the daylights out of me!".

The passenger apologized and said, "I didn't realize that a little tap
would scare you so much."

The driver replied, "Sorry, it's not really your fault. Today is my
first day as a cab driver - I've been driving a van carrying dead Bodies
for the last 25 years...

BELIEVE IT OR NOT

The following story was forwarded to me thro mail. i am not sure whether its true or not. enjoy!!

Of all tales of the supernatural, this one is perhaps the best documented, the most disturbing and the most difficult to explain...

The Princess of Amen-Ra lived in 1050 B.C. When she died, she was laid in an ornate wooden coffin and buried deep in a vault at Luxor, on the banks of the nile.
In the 1880s, four rich young Englishmen visiting the excavations at Luxor were invited to buy an exquisitely fashioned mummy case containing the remains of the Princess of Amen-Ra. They drew lots. The man who won paid several thousand pounds and had the coffin taken to his hotel. A few hours later, he was seen walking out towards the desert. He never returned.

The next day, one of the remaining three men was shot by an Egyptian servant accidentally. His arm was so severely wounded it had to be amputated.
The third man in the foursome found on his return home that the bank holding his entire savings had failed.
The fourth man suffered a severe illness, lost his job and was reduced to selling matches in the street.

Nevertheless, the coffin reached England (causing other misfortunes along the way), where it was bought by a London businessman. After three of his family members had been injured in a road accident and his house damaged by fire, the businessman donated it to the British Museum.

As the coffin was being unloaded from a wagon in the museum courtyard, the wagon suddenly went into reverse and trapped a passer-by. Then as the casket was being lifted up the stairs by two workmen, one fell and broke his leg. The other, apparently in perfect health, died unaccountably two days later.

Once the Princess was installed in the Egyptian Room, trouble really started. Museum's night watchmen frequently heard frantic hammering and sobbing from the coffin. Other exhibits in the room were also often hurled about at night. One watchman died on duty; causing the other watchmen wanting to quit. Cleaners refused to go near the Princess, too. When a visitor derisively flicked a dust cloth at the face painted on the coffin, his child died of measles soon afterwards.

Finally, the authorities had the mummy carried down to the basement, figuring it could not do any harm down there, while leaving the lid of the coffin on display. (The lid of the coffin (Exhibit No. 22542) is still there!) Within a week, one of the helpers was seriously ill, and the supervisor of the move was found dead on his desk.

By now, the papers had heard of it. A journalist photographer took a picture of the mummy case and when he developed it, the painting on the coffin was of a horrifying, human face. The photographer was said to have gone home then, locked his bedroom door and shot himself.

Soon afterwards, the museum sold the mummy to a private collector. After continual misfortune (and deaths), the owner banished it to the attic.

A well-known authority on the occult, Madame Helena Blavatsky, visited the premises. Upon entry, she was sized with a shivering fit and searched the house for the source of "an evil influence of incredible intensity". She finally came to the attic and found the mummy case. "Can you exorcise this evil spirit?" asked the owner. "There is no such thing as exorcism. Evil remains evil forever. Nothing can be done about it. I implore you to get rid of this evil as soon as possible."
But no British museum would take the mummy; the fact that almost 20 people had met with misfortune, disaster or death from handling the casket, in barely 10 years, was now well known.

Eventually, a hardheaded American archaeologist (who dismissed the happenings as quirks of circumstance), paid a handsome price for the mummy and arranged for its removal to New York. In April of 1912, the new owner escorted its treasure aboard a sparkling, new White Star liner about to make its maiden voyage to New York.

Because the reputation of the mummy was well known, the owner, who was a chess player named William T. Stead, was afraid that his cargo would not be loaded. Therefore, he secretly arranged for the mummy to be hidden under the body of a new Renault automobile, which was being transported to America on the ship. Stead did not reveal the truth about his cargo to the other passengers until the night before the next disaster.

On the night of April 14, amid scenes of unprecedented horror, the Princess of Amen-Ra accompanied 1,500 passengers to their deaths at the bottom of the Atlantic.


The name of the ship was Titanic....!!!!!
