World's most complicated railway line

Inspite of being such a complicated Railway network, we never hear about any accidents in Frankfurt Germany.

Surya join hands with ISRO. Mission HELIWATER !!!!

Mission HELIWATER !!!!  

In an amazing news to TamilNadu, Indian Space and Research Organization has planned to send actor Surya to moon without any space launchers. This was decided after cheif Scientist Madhavan Nair watched the movie Adhavan in which the actor managed to jump from the ground to catch a helicopter. Cheif Scientist Madhavan Nair was quoted as “We think it will be wise solution as it reduces all the cost involved due to fuel and construction of space craft. It will also mark India as the first country to produce three living super heros if the mission is successful one. The main mission will be to bring water to Chennai from the moon”.

Surya was very excited about the prospect of flying till the moon. “I dedicate this trip to my daughter Diya” said Surya who is still recovering from his award winning syndrome. Jyothika was also excited.”I thought only I can overact but my husband has proved that he can overact even more than me. This over action by flying till helicopter has won him a trip to moon without space craft which is exciting”.

Kingfisher has decided to sponsor the event. Dr Vijay Mallya was quoted as “I am really excited about this thing. Kingfisher feels immensely proud to sponsor a trip to moon by a man. Surya will be wearing a dress sponsored by Kingfisher. It is same as the Banglore Royal Challengers dress. He will get water from the moon using the Kingfisher mineral water bottle which we provide him”.

Director K.S.Ravikumar was equally excited about the trip. K.S Ravikumar said that “I am pleased ISRO has seen my film when whole TamilNadu including my family are not willing to see the film. It shows the credibility of the movie. I am excited that Surya is travelling to moon without any space shuttle based on a scene from my movie. I would also recommend scientist all over the world to watch my other movies like Padayappa in which I tell the concept of differentiating granite hill from normal hill and Minsara Khanna in which I proved birds react on hearing cycle bell sound”.

Sarath Kumar, the head of Tamil film association said “It is a proud moment for Tamil Film Industry. K.S.Ravikumar should be given noble prize for identifying the talents in Surya. No scientist can find a suitable error free shuttle to moon. A Tamilian has solved all those problem. I am proud to be a Tamilian”.

Vijay TV has acquired the rights to telecast the event live on TV. The show will be hosted by Divyadharshini and judged by fellow super heros Vijayakanth and Arjun who have equally excelled in saving our country from foreign intervention. Marks will be given after Surya returns back to earth and based on amount of water he fetches from the moon. If the amount of water that Surya brings is less than the expected level he will not be given the super hero status which both the judges hold currently. Meanwhile Lalit Modi has told that IPL will share the profit with Surya, as Surya will be wearing the dress worn by Banglore Royal Challengers.

Meanwhile S.A. Chandrashekar was of his own idea to send his son Vijay to Mars without any sponsor. When asked for the reason he was quoted as “ISRO was totally unfair to my son. He has shown his flying ability in the movie Kuruvi. But they have totally ignored that. It is our turn to prove ISRO that my son also deserve the super hero status. We will take this mission on our own without any sponsors”.

Amazing Train Routes around the world

Very Important Information to avoid brain damaging - Healthy brain tips


1. No Breakfast
People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level. This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing brain degeneration.
2 . Overeating
It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.
3. Smoking
It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease.
4. High Sugar consumption
Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.
5. Air Pollution
The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our 20 body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.
6 . Sleep Deprivation
Sleep allows our brain to rest.. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells..
7. Head covered while sleeping
Sleeping with the head covered increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.

8. Working your brain during illness
Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.
9. Lacking in stimulating thoughts
Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.
10. Talking Rarely
Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of the brain

The main causes of liver damage are:

1. Sleeping too late and waking up too late are main cause.

2. Not urinating in the morning.

3 . Too much eating.

4. Skipping breakfast.

5. Consuming too much medication.

6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring, and artificial sweetener.

7. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil.

As much as possible reduce cooking oil use when frying, which includes even the best cooking oils like olive oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are tired, except if the body is20very fit.

8. Consuming raw (overly done) foods also add to the burden of liver.

Veggies should be eaten raw or cooked 3-5 parts. Fried veggies should be finished in one sitting, do not store.

We should prevent this without necessarily spending more. We just have to adopt a good daily lifestyle and eating habits. Maintaining good eating habits and time condition are very important for our bodies to absorb and get rid of unnecessary chemicals according to 'schedule.'

The top five cancer-causing foods are:

1. Hot Dogs

Because they are high in nitrates, the Cancer Prevention Coalition advises that children eat no more than 12 hot dogs a month. If you can't live without hot dogs, buy those made without sodium nitrate.

2. Processed meats and Bacon

Also high in the same sodium nitrates found in hot dogs, bacon, and other processed meats raise the risk of heart disease. The saturated fat in bacon also contributes to cancer.

3. Doughnuts

Doughnuts are cancer-causing double trouble. First, they are made with white flour, sugar, and hydrogenated oils, then fried at high temperatures. Doughnuts, says Adams , may be the worst food you can possibly eat to raise your risk of cancer.

4. French fries

Like doughnuts, French fries are made with hydrogenated oils and then fried at high temperatures. They also contain cancer- causing acryl amides which occur during the frying process. They should be called cancer fries, not French fries, said Adams .

5. Chips, crackers, and cookies

All are usually made with white flour and sugar. Even the ones whose labels claim to be free of trans-fats generally contain small amounts of trans-fats.

Drink Water and Stay healthy and Active.

This makes sense .. The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their
meals ..not cold water. Maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit
while eating!!! Nothing to lose, everything to gain...

For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to

It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold
water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will
slow down the digestion.

Once this "sludge" reacts with the acid, it will break down and be
absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the
intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is
best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

A serious note about heart attacks: Women should know that not every
heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting.

Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line.

You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart

Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms.

60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake

Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be
aware. The more we know, the better chance we could survive...

A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this mail sends it to everyone
they know, you can be sure that we'll save at least one life.

Self Appraisal

Its Must read – very inspiring

A little boy went into a drug store, reached for a soda carton and

pulled it over to the telephone. He climbed onto the carton so that he

could reach the buttons on the phone and proceeded to punch in seven

digits (phone number).


The store-owner observed and listened to the conversation:



Boy : "Lady, Can you give me the job of cutting your lawn?


Woman : (at the other end of the phone line) "I already have someone

to cut my lawn."


Boy : "Lady, I will cut your lawn for half the price of the person who

cuts your lawn now."


Woman : I'm very satisfied with the person who is presently cutting my



Boy : (with more perseverance) "Lady, I'll even sweep your curb and

your sidewalk, so, on Sunday you will have the prettiest lawn in all

of Palm beach , Florida ."


Woman : No, thank you.


With a smile on his face, the little boy replaced the receiver. The

store-owner, who was listening to all this, walked over to the boy.


Store Owner : "Son... I like your attitude; I like that positive

spirit and would like to offer you a job."


Boy : "No thanks,


Store Owner : But you were really pleading for one.




Boy : No Sir, I was just checking my performance at the job I already

have. I am the one who is working for that lady I was talking to!"




This is what we call  ===> "Self Appraisal"

Tomato Story

Tomato Story

A Jobless man applied for the position of 'office boy' at Microsoft. The HR manager interviewed him then watched him cleaning the floor as a test.

'You are employed' he said. Give me your e-mail address and I'll send you the application to fill in, as well as date when you may start.

The man replied 'But I don't have a computer, neither an email'.

'I'm sorry', said the HR manager. If you don't have an email, that means you do not exist. And who doesn't exist, cannot have the job.'

The man left with no hope at all. He didn't know what to do, with only $10 in his pocket. He then decided to go to the supermarket and buy a 10Kg tomato crate.
He then sold the tomatoes in a door to door round. In less than two hours,
he succeeded to double his capital. He repeated the operation three times,
and returned home with $60.

The man realized that he can survive by this way, and started to go everyday earlier, and return late. Thus, his money doubled or tripled everyday.

Shortly, he bought a cart, then a truck, and then he had his own fleet of delivery vehicles.

5 years later, the man is one of the biggest food retailers in the US ...

He started to plan his family's future, and decided to have a life insurance.

He called an insurance broker, and chose a protection plan.
When the conversation was concluded the broker asked him his email.
The man replied,'I don't have an email.'
The broker answered curiously, 'You don't have an email, and yet have succeeded to build an empire. Can you imagine what you could have been if you had an e mail?!!' The man thought for a while and replied, 'Yes, I'd be an office boy at Microsoft!'

Moral of the story

Moral 1

Internet is not the solution to your life.

Moral 2

If you don't have Internet, and work hard, you can be a millionaire.

Moral 3

If you received this message by email,
you are closer to being a office boy/girl, than a millionaire. .........

An article on Recession...

Money has no memory. Experience has. You will never know what the total
cost of your education was, but for a lifetime you will recall and
relive the memories of schools and colleges. Few years from now, you
will forget the amount you paid to settle the hospitalization bill, but
will ever cherish having saved your mother's life or the life you get to
live with the just born. You won't remember the cost of your honeymoon,
but to the last breath remember the experiences of the bliss of
togetherness. Money has no memory. Experience has.

Good times and bad times, times of prosperity and times of poverty,
times when the future looked so secure and times when you didn't know
from where the tomorrow will come... life has been in one way or the
other a roller-coaster ride for everyone. Beyond all that abundance and
beyond all that deprivation, what remains is the memory of experiences.
Sometimes the wallet was full... sometimes even the pocket was empty.
There was enough and you still had reasons to frown. There wasn't enough
and you still had reasons to smile. Today, you can look back with tears
of gratitude for all the times you had laughed together, and also look
back with a smile at all the times you cried alone. All in all, life
filled you with experiences to create a history of your own self, and
you alone can remember them all.

The first time you balanced yourself on your cycle without support...
The first time she said 'yes' and it was two years since you proposed...
The first cry... the first steps... the first word... the first kiss...
all of your child... The first gift you bought for your parents and the
first gift your daughter gave you... The first award... the first public
appreciation... the first stage performance... And the list is
endless... Experiences, with timeless memory... No denying that anything
that's material cost money, but the fact remains the cost of the
experience will be forgotten, but the experience never.

So, what if it's economic recession? Let it be, but let there not be a
recession to the quality of your life.
You can still take your parents,
if not on a pilgrimage, at least to the local temple. You can still play
with your children, if not on an international holiday, at least in the
local park. It doesn't cost money to lie down or to take a loved one
onto your lap. Nice time to train the employees, create leadership
availability and be ready for the wonderful times when they arrive. Hey!
Aspects like your health, knowledge development and spiritual growth are
not economy dependent.

Time will pass... economy will revive... currency will soon be in
current... and in all this; I don't want you to look back and realize
you did nothing but stayed in gloom. Recession can make you lose out on
money. Let it not make you lose out on experiences... If you are not
happy with what you have, no matter how much more you have, you will
still not be happy.
