My wife called, ‘How long will you be with that newspaper? Will you come here and make your darling daughter eat her food?
I tossed the paper away and rushed to the scene. My only daughter, Sindu, looked frightened; tears were welling up in her eyes. In front of her was a bowl filled to its brim with curd rice. Sindu is a nice child, quite intelligent for her age.
I cleared my throat and picked up the bowl. ‘Sindu, darling, why don’t you take a few mouthful of this curd rice? Just for Dad’s sake, dear’.
Sindu softened a bit and wiped her tears with the back of her hands. ‘Ok, Dad. I will eat – not just a few mouthfuls, but the whole lot of this. But, you should…’ Sindu hesitated. ‘Dad, if I eat this entire curd Rice, will you give me whatever I ask for?’
‘Promise’. I covered the pink soft hand extended by my daughter with mine, and clinched the deal. Now I became a bit anxious. ‘Sindu, dear, you shouldn’t insist on getting a computer or any such expensive items. Dad does not have that kind of money right now. Ok?’
‘No, Dad. I … Read More »

After struggling to the 20th level, panting and tired, they decided to abandon their bags and come back for them the next day. They left their bags then and climbed on. When they have struggled to the 40th level, the younger brother started to grumble and both of them began to quarrel. They continued to climb the flights of steps, quarreling all the way to the 60th floor.
They then realized that they have only 20 levels more to climb and decided to stop quarreling and continue climbing in peace. They silently climbed on and reached their home at long last. Each stood calmly before the door and waited for the other to open the door.
And they realized that the key was in their bags which was left on the 20th floor.

London, June 8 (ANI): A man has embarked on an extraordinary journey across the US: to sample 50 careers in 50 States, over 50 weeks.
Daniel Seddiqui is on his 37th job this week as he works as a gardener at Monticello. He has worked as a weather forecaster in Ohio, made cheese in Wisconsin, struggled as a mechanic in Michigan, and joined a pit crew at the Indy 500 track in Indiana.
All of it has been documented on his website, livingthemap.
The economics graduate started on his adventure after 40 failed job interviews.
He bought a second hand car and left his home near San Francisco in August last year, trying to secure employment on the road.
Seddiqui says that the purpose of his journey isn’t just to find a permanent job, but to highlight America’s cultural diversity.
“I’m choosing jobs which depict the culture or economy of the state and I’m also living the cultures of each state,” Sky News quoted him as saying.
“Families are hosting me for the week, so I eat the food they eat, I go to the events they do.
“I’m pretty sure most average Americans don’t know what each state has … Read More »
