  • Lakshmana Temples

     

    Thirumoozhikulam Sree Lakshmanaperumal Temple is located in Thirumoozhikalam

    in Ernakulam district of Kerala. The temple finds mention in many of the Bhajans

    sung by the staunchly Vaishnavite Alwars, particularly Nammalvar of 5000 years back.

     

    Lakshmana is the brother of Lord Rama. He is also one of the close companion of Lord Rama. In Hinduism, Lakshmana is considered as the avathara of ‘Anantha’, the immortal and infinite snake on which Lord Vishnu takes rest. Lakshmana is the son of Dhasaradha’s and sumithra and twin brother of Sathrughna. In spite of of being the twin brother of Sathrughna , Lakshmana was more attached to Lord Rama. Lakshmana married to Urmila, the sister of Sita devi. Lakshmana accompanied with Rama in his entire life. He was so loyal, lovable and committed to his brother. When Rama was exiled from the country for 14 years, Lakshmana also gave up all his happiness and accompanied his brother’s foot steps. During the way also Lakshmana served Lord Rama and Sita Devi reverently. He took care of them properly during those days.

    Lakshmana Rekha’ is very famous. It is his specialty. Intruders cant enter into the ‘Lakshmana Rekha’ or Lakshmana’s limit. If anyone crosses then they will be instantly killed. Also Lakshmana is known as a very powerful warrior. His courage and power are near to that of Lord Rama. Lakshmana is a perfect example for a man whose life represents the duties of a man to his elders. Selfishness could not be seen in any part of his life.

     Difficult to Improve

    There was this chain smoker who could not refrain from smoking at anytime if he was awake. He wanted to go to a religious gathering but was afraid that the priest would not approve his smoking. His friend suggested he should ask for permission. He approached the priest and asked,”sir, may I smoke while I am in prayer attending the function?”. The priest turned him down and suggested he should fisrt finish smoking before he entered the room for his prayers. Our man was depressed and his friend said not to worry and he would get the permission. His friend approached the priest the next day and said with hesitation, “sir, I have a doubt in my mind. I need some clarification”. Encouraged by the priest, he asked “sir, would the Good Lord be upset if I am praying silently while smoking? I feel like praying all the time but I don’t pray as I feel I shouldn’t while I am smoking”. The priest said, “son, the Lord is very kind. HE would be so pleased that He is in your thoughts all the time. Please do pray while you are smoking, in the bath, while walking the dog—whenever you want”.

    He attended the religious function, smoked his way through while sitting in the back.

    Once upon a time there was a painter who had  just completed his course. He took 3 days and painted beautiful scenery. He  wanted people’s opinion about his caliber and painting skills.

    He put his creation at a busy street-crossing.
    And just down below a board which read -“I have painted this piece. Since I’m
    new to this profession I might have committed some mistakes in my strokes etc.
    Please put a cross wherever you see a mistake.”

    While he came back in the evening to collect his  painting he was completely shattered to see that whole canvass was filled with  Xs (crosses) and some people had even written their comments on the  painting.

    Disheartened and broken completely he ran to his  master’s place and burst into tears.

    This young artist was breathing heavily and  master heard him saying ” I’m useless and if this is what I have learnt to paint  I’m not worth becoming a painter. People have rejected me completely. I feel > like dying”

    Master smiled and suggested “My Son, I will  prove that you are a great artist and have learnt flawless painting. Do as I say  without questioning it. It will work.”

    Young artist reluctantly agreed and two days  later early morning he presented a replica of his earlier painting to his  master. Master took that gracefully and smiled.

    “Come with me.” master said.  They reached the same street-square early
    morning and displayed the same painting exactly at the same place. Now master
    took out another board which read -“Gentlemen, I have painted this piece. Since I’m new to this profession I might have committed some mistakes in my strokes  etc. I have put a box with colors and brushes just below. Please do a favor. If  you see a mistake, kindly pick up the brush and correct it.”

    Master and disciple walked back  home.

    They both visited the place same evening. Young painter was surprised to see that actually there was not a single correction  done so far. Next day again they visited and found painting remained untouched. They say the painting was kept there for a month for no correction came  in.

    Moral of the story:

    It is easier to criticize, but DIFFICULT TO IMPROVE.
    So don’t get carried away or judge yourself by  someone else  criticism and feel depressed…

    JUDGE YOURSELF! YOU ARE YOUR BEST  JUDGE.

  • History of Internet

    The History of the Internet has precursors that date back to the 19th century, especially the telegraph system, more than a century before the digital Internet became widely used in the second half of the 1990s. The concept of data communication – transmitting data between two different places, connected via some kind of electromagnetic medium, such as radio or an electrical wire – actually predates the introduction of the first computers. Such communication systems were typically limited to point to point communication between two end devices.                                                                           ( More …)

  • Black Robbers — A True Story.

     

    BLACK ROBBERS (A True Story)

     

    For anyone who didn’t see the episode of David Letterman’s show where this story was told, read this:

    (And remember it’s a true story…)

     

    On a recent weekend in Atlantic City, a woman won a bucketful of quarters at a slot machine.

    She took a break from the slots for dinner with her husband in the hotel dining room. But first she wanted to stash the quarters in her room.

    ‘I’ll be right back and we’ll go to eat’ she told her husband and carried the coin-laden bucket to the elevator.

    As she was about to walk into the elevator she noticed two men already aboard. Both were black. One of them was very tall and had an intimidating figure. The woman froze. Her first thought was: ‘These two are going to rob me.’

    Her next thought was: ‘Don’t be a bigot, they look like perfectly nice gentlemen.’ But racial stereo types are powerful, and fear immobilized her.

    Avoiding eye contact, she turned around stiffly and faced the elevator doors as they closed.

    A second passed, and then another second, and then another. Her fear increased! The elevator didn’t move. Panic consumed her.
    ‘My God’ she thought, I’m trapped and about to be robbed!

    Her heart plummeted. Perspiration poured from every pore.

    Then one of the men said, ‘Hit the floor.’

    Instinct told her to do what they told her.

    The bucket of quarters flew upwards as she threw out her arms and collapsed on the elevator floor. A shower of coins rained down on her..

    ‘Take my money and spare me’, she prayed.

    More seconds passed. She heard one of the men say politely, ‘Ma’am, if you’ll just tell us what floor you’re going to, we’ll push the button.’

    The one who said it had a little trouble getting the words out. He was trying mightily to hold in a belly laugh.. The woman lifted her head and looked up at the two men. They reached down to help her up.

    Confused, she struggled to her feet. ‘When I told my friend here to hit the floor,’ said the average sized one, I meant that he should hit the elevator button for our floor.

    I didn’t mean for you to hit the floor, ma’am.

    He spoke genially. He bit his lip. It was obvious he was having a hard time not laughing.

    The woman thought: ‘My God, what a spectacle I’ve made of myself.’

    She was too humiliated to speak. The three of them gathered up the strewn quarters and refilled her bucket.

    When the elevator arrived at her floor they then insisted on walking her to her room. She seemed a little unsteady on her feet, and they were afraid she might not make it down the corridor.

    At her door they bid her a good evening.

    As she slipped into her room she could hear them roaring with laughter as they walked back to the elevator.

    The woman brushed herself off. She pulled herself together and went downstairs for dinner with her husband.

    The next morning flowers were delivered to her room; a dozen roses.

    Attached to EACH rose was a crisp one hundred-dollar bill.

    The card said: ‘Thanks for the best laugh we’ve had in years.
