That was the best journey I had...!!!

Some trips become memorable to us in such a way that u can never forget them. I don't know how but today I recalled of a trip that I made a long time ago, I guess it was more than 7-8 years.

I don't remember the exact details, but it was a trip from Agra to Kanpur and we boarded the train in the morning. Obviously, we're expecting it to be a normal journey, but we met a group of college students who were forced to wake up early in the morning(at about 8am...obviously it was too early for any college student) due to us as we're also in the same compartment as them.

But soon, we all became friends and played games, singing songs and doing all such stupid stuff. Actually one of them had his birthday and most probably the next day was the NEW YEAR(that's what I remember), that made the journey more fun.

I don't remember anything in detail about that journey, as its been a long time and at that time I was just a kid, but I remember the most important thing, that it wa…

The Greatest Speech by the Greatest Artist as a Greatest Dictator...!!!

There are some things we need to keep a record of, so that whenever we need them, we can access them. Here's one of them from my collection. Truly speaking, I had forgotten about this video, until I came across it yesterday after a long time while searching for something else.

Its really a very interesting speech from the movie "The Great Dictator"(1940) featuring Charlie Chaplin as "Hitler". I think those who haven't watched the movie should atleast watch the video once...

Here it is:

Charlie Chaplin as "Hitler":

I'm sorry but I don't want to be an emperor. That's not my business. I don't want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible; Jew, Gentile, black men, white. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each others' happiness, not by each other's misery. We don't want to hate and despise one another.…

I don't want an Answer...I want the Solution...!!!

Sometimes a situation comes when we're stuck in the midst of a situation which needs a solution, but we only have an answer to that problem. I guess that's the toughest situation for anyone, and the only solution that we're left with is to console ourselves.

Are you good at LOGIC...???

If you think that you're good at logic, then read each of the questions in the conversation below and try to answer them without reading the answers...!!! ;)


Abbas, a fresh computer graduate from a world class university goes for an interview in a Software company.

The interviewer is Waleed, a grubby old man. And the first question he asks Abbas, is are you good at logic?.

“Ofcourse” replies Abbas.

“Let me test you” replies Waleed.

“Two men come down a chimney. One comes with a clean face and the other comes out with a dirty face. Which one washes his face?

Abbas stares at Waleed. “Is that a test in Logic?”

Waleed nods.

“The one with the dirty face washes his face,” He answers wearily.

“Wrong. The one with the clean face washes his face. Examine the simple logic. The one with the dirty face looks at the one with the clean face and thinks his face is clean. The one with the clean face looks at the one with the dirty face and thinks his face is dirty. So; the one with the clean face washes h…

You're Over-Qualified, hence REJECTED..!!!

Yesterday a similar situation occurred in our college when Accenture came for the ON-CAMPUS Placement of the final year students. Everyone knew Accenture as a mass recruiter company but this year only 12 hours before the written we came to know that it has increased the level of written and PI and won't be taking students in a large number. We were like its OK...now you can't do anything, just do the exam properly, have faith in HIM and wait for the results.

Anyways in the morning, our written went quiet well and we're quiet sure that in any case, no matter how high the cutoff maybe, we're through to the next round, i.e., PI. However, when the results came, we came to knew that we're not selected and when we scrolled down the names who were selected, we even found the names of some those people who said that "we won't get selected if the cutoff is more than 50%".

When I later discussed with my friends that what mistakes we might have done in the paper, …
