Shezad Roy says: Zindagi (Life) is inspiring. Its inspiration lies in the unique experiences we go through daily. Some of them are sweet and some bitter. We try to undo the effects of the bitter ones by either forgetting them or by extending a helping hand to the ones who are suffering. Its only then that we know how many other hands are there to join in for the cause, its only then that we realize how many more hands are needed. See his effort at:http://www.zindagitrust.org/#

Ever heard the story of the giant ship engine that failed? The ship's owners tried one expert after another, but none of them could figure but how to fix the engine. Then they brought in an old man who had been fixing ships since he was a youngster. He carried a large bag of tools with him, and when he arrived, he immediately went to work. He inspected the engine very carefully, top to bottom. Two of the ship's owners were there, watching this man, hoping he would know what to do. After looking things over, the old man reached into his bag and pulled out a small hammer. He gently tapped something. Instantly, the engine lurched into life. He carefully put his hammer away. The engine was fixed! A week later, the owners received a bill from the old man for ten thousand dollars. "What?!" the owners exclaimed. "He hardly did anything!" So they wrote the old man a note saying, "Please send us an itemized bill." The man sent a bill that read: Tapping with a hammer ......................... $ 2.00 Knowing where to tap ......................... $ 9998.00 Effort is important, but knowing where to make an effort in your life makes all the difference

Do you know something interesting about FIFA World Cup Brazil won the world cup in 1994. Before that, he had won this title for the last time in 1970. If you add up: 1970 + 1994 = 3964 Argentina won the world cup for the last time in 1986. Before that only in 1978. And by adding 1978 + 1986 = 3964 Germany, won the world cup in 1990. Before that, Germany won in 1974. Look: 1990 + 1974 = 3964 This could lead us to guess the winner of the World Cup in 2002, since it should be the winner of the 1962 World Cup (In fact 3964 - 2002 = 1962). And Brazil won the world cup in 1962! (And, in fact, Brazil won the 2002 World Cup) This numerology seems to work........ And now, who would be the winner of the 2006 World Cup????? Let's see, 3964 - 2006 = 1958 And who won in 1958?......... Oh,Brazil did!!!

An award should go to the gate attendant at Luqa airport. A crowded Malta-London flight was cancelled. She was the lone attendant in charge of re-booking a long line of inconvenienced travelers. Suddenly an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped his ticket down on the counter and said, "I HAVE to be on this flight and it HAS to be FIRST CLASS". The attendant replied, "I'm sorry sir. I'll be happy to try to help you, but I've got to help these people first, and I'm sure we'll be able to work something out." The passenger was unimpressed. He asked loudly, so that the passengers behind him could hear, "DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM?" Without hesitating, the attendant smiled and grabbed her public address microphone: May I have your attention please? May I have your attention please?" she began. With her voice being heard clearly throughout the terminal, she said, "We have a passenger here at Gate 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him find his identity, please come to Gate 14." With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man glared at the attendant, gritted his teeth and said, "F*** You!" Without flinching, she smiled and said, "I'm sorry, sir, but you'll have to get in line for that too."

Why is it we can feel so good one day and bad the next for no apparent reason? Is it just luck or chance that makes things go well for us today and badly tomorrow?
