HOAX Mail???

Got the following  mail from Gmail Customer Service.

Seems to be a Hoax mail to me….since it was sent from some arbidgeja1959@charter.net  the return address was windowslive65@yahoo.com

The Subject of the mail was: Account Warning: Unused Account Removal, Verify

Did any of you’ll also get it? Gmail folks….can you track the sender and send warning mails to all your accound holders!

Now I am assuming this is a hoax mail….it was sent to me some 11 hours ago and it gives me a period of 24 hours to reply….in case I can open my mail aacout tomo…I will be sure it is a Hoax mail….!

Will keep you posted…

TIll then if anyone knows any thing about this mailer….let me know!

World Smile Day!!!

A s a follow up to my last post …  just got an idea…how about celebrating  a “Smile Day”  in offices/schools/colleges like we celebrate rose day/valentine day/ doctor day etc…..What say???

And Smile day would be a day when you ‘HAVE’ to smile at everyone you see…. strangers…friends….enemies..!! How cool is that imagine the kind of positivity you will spread!!

Why don’t you try it….and tell me how it worked! We together  we will pioneers of the WORLD SMILE DAY!!

While I was writing this post….I just checked google to see if anyone has ever thought of a “World Smile Day”….and apparently people have….!  The first Friday of October is designated as “World Smile Day” and apparently the theme of the day is

“Do an act of kindness.  Help one person smile.”

Well this theme is good…..but it is a little vague….What is an act of kindness!!?? So I say….we should have a “World Smile Day” and lets propogate the first Friday of October as world Smile Day but with a very smile theme

“ Smile at everyone you see and wish them Happy World Smile Day!!”

What say…is it a good idea? Will you help?? Can we bring some positivity in the world by Smiling? I am sooo sure we can….

Think about it…..and write to me till then….Happy Smiling!!! 🙂

Power of Smiling!

Today I drove into the petrol pump and there were 3 cars waiting to be refueled in lane One and 3 cars waiting to be refueled in lane two…

Now I had half a mind of driving off and hoping that the fuel lasts me the day (if required I will go without air con..no that is crazy in the heat) when the attendant at the Pump goes….”mam…..chalo aapko phle bhar dete hai” last lane mein laga lo” ( we will refuel your car first.. drive into the last lane)… The last lane is  normally used as a service lane an not normally for vehicles to fuel up….

I  drove into the last lane…re-fuelled….and drove off…..!

Now what did I do deserve special treatment at the petrol pump….???

Nothing except that…I  normally smile….and said Thank you every week when I came to this petrol pump to fuel!  

Simple is’nt it….? Smile …say thank you…but how many of us actually do that??  How many of us smile at people who are supposedly in a lower socio economic background?? Our Bai’s…the waiters….the watchmen…..do we ever even smile at them…saying thank you is a far fetched thing!

Well I am no saint….if I get pissed…and I think the service is not upto the mark….I will also not hesitate to take case and not let go…..but by and large  I think I smile more than I get pissed….( people who know can comment and tell me if they disagree!)

But how many of us smile at strangers??  Believe me…I do that quite often….and it is really not stupid…almost eveytime I have an eye contact with anyone….in the lift…people I don’t know in office….people in the canteen…..I smile….and trust me….no one has ever frowned back at me…. And almost everyone smiles back!

Smile…it costs you nothing…..and it makes you feel good….it makes the person you smile at feel good…it is infectious….and it is an infection worth passing!!

Happy Smiling 🙂

Some books I have read…

Now my book reviews have been the most booring blogs according to my readers…..but you know what….they do get me quite a few new hits on my blog….ya they don’t get me too many comments but I am hoping that will change!

But despite all the feedback I have got on my book blogs….i still want to write about the books I have read….the reason for that is that it is nice to write a summary of the book you have read….it helps you to remember it ….and I think for people who like to read…it also acts like a recommendation… ! Actually come to think of it….almost all the people who have told me they don’t like my book review post  are people who I know don’t like to read!!

So people…this post is for all you guys and girls out there who like to read….this is what I have been reading the last few days

Q&A / Slum Dog Millionaire By Vikas Swaroop

Well…interesting book…infact I think I liked it better than the movie….but I guess that is always the care…I personally like the book better in case of almost all books that have been adapted into movies…like the harry Potter series!

One thing that the author good have done differently…and which has been done very well in the movie is that the question could be asked first and then the entire story about how the protagonist happened to know the answer should have followed! The book is divided into one chapter per question and the entire chapter talks about some incidents in this life and then the question is popped up at the end of the chapter….

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Six Suspects- Vikas Swaroop

I personally did not like the book too much….I guess that is because it was hyped too much for me…my bro read it before me….another friend had read and told me it was really nice…..but I found it pretty over the top and unrealistic….it was very very filmy….not a book I would highly recommend to anyone…..but I guess maybe it is not too bad….and I just started reading it with very high expectations!

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

If God was a Banker – Ravi Subramanium

Really enjoy the book…started reading at at 12 pm on a weekday night…..and stayed up all night finished the book by 4 in the morn and then went to sleep!!

The book is two people….Swami and Sundeep and their corporate life in a MNC bank in India….Swamy is a  very good boy….and his character reminded me of someone in my current team at work….so maybe that is why I enjoyed the book even more….

Sundeep is a kaamena in the book…thank god I don’t know someone like him in real life!!

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

So happy reading and commenting!! Tell me if you have read any of these books…tell me what you think of them….would love to hear from you! I peronally love Indian authors….what about u?

Making Dal Ki Roti!

I have always seen Dal ka Roti being made…and this Sunday  I made it for myself…..and it was soooo easy….

Mix the leftover dal (preferably use yellow dal)  with the aata (wheat flour)… put some salt and chillies (red chillies and green chillies)…cut onions finely and mix with the aaata and you are ready to go.

Now make paratha….remember to put ghee in it…that makes it all the more tasty!!

Another little thing that I did wrong…so warning you’ll…so you don’t make the same mistake…..ensure that your paratha is nice and thick….if you make it too thin…it will become very crisp…and then not taste as good!!

Happy making and eating Dal ka Paratha’s…!! Other Paratha recipes some other time…my mom is a pro is making paratha’s so I know a whole lot of recipes!!!
