Once upon a time there was a rich King who had four wives.
He loved the 4th wife the most and adorned her with rich robes and treated her to the finest of delicacies. He gave her nothing but the best.
He also loved the 3rd wife very much and was always showing her off to neighboring kingdoms. However, he feared that one day she would leave him for another.
He also loved his 2nd wife. She was his confidant and was always kind, considerate and patient with him. Whenever the King faced a problem, he could confide in
her, and she would help him get through the difficult times.
The King's 1st wife was a very loyal partner and had made great contributions in maintaining his wealth and kingdom. However, he did not love the first wife.
Although she loved him deeply, he hardly took notice of her!
One day, the King fell ill and he knew his time was short. He thought of his luxurious life and wondered, "I now have four wives with me, but When I die, I'll
be all alone."
Thus, he asked the 4th wife, "I have loved you the most, endowed you with the finest clothing and showered great care over you. Now that I'm dying, will you follow me and
keep me company?"
"No way!", replied the 4th wife, and she walked away without another word. Her answer cut like a sharp knife right into his heart.
The sad King then asked the 3rd wife, "I have loved you all my life. Now that I'm dying, will you follow me and keep me company?"
"No!" replied the 3rd wife. "Life is too good! When you die, I'm going to remarry!" His heart sank and turned cold.
He then asked the 2nd wife, "I have always turned to you for help and you've always been there for me...when I die, will you follow me and keep me company?"
"I'm sorry, I can't help you out this time!", replied the 2nd wife. "At the very most, I can only send you to your grave." Her answer came like a bolt of
lightning, and the King was devastated.
Then a voice called out: "I'll leave with you and follow you no matter where you go." The King looked up, and there was his first wife. She was so skinny as
she suffered from malnutrition and neglect.
Greatly grieved, the King said, "I should have taken much better care of you when I had the chance!"
In truth, we all have 4 wives in our lives:
Our 4th wife is our body. No matter how much time and effort we lavish in making it look good, it will leave us when we die.
Our 3rd wife is our possessions, status and wealth. When we die, it will all go to others.
Our 2nd wife is our family and friends. No matter how much they have been there for us, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the grave.
And our 1st wife is our Soul. Often neglected in
pursuit of wealth, power and pleasures of the world.However, our Soul is the only thing that will follow us wherever we go.
Cultivate, strengthen and cherish it now, for it is the only part of us that will follow us to the throne of God and continue with us throughout Eternity.
When the world pushes you to your knees...You're in
the perfect position to pray. Think about it

There was this case in the hospital's Intensive care ward where patients always died in the same bed and on Sunday morning at 11 a.m., regardless of their medical condition. This puzzled the doctors and some even thought that it had something to do with the supernatural. No one could solve the mystery as to why the deaths took place at 11 AM.
So a world-wide expert team was constituted and they decided to go down to the ward to investigate the cause of the incidents. So on the next Sunday morning few minutes before 11a.m., all doctors and nurses nervously waited outside the ward to see for themselves what the terrible phenomenon was all about. Some were holding wooden crosses, prayer books and other holy objects to ward off evil........
Just when the clock struck 11...
Santa Singh, the part-time Sunday sweeper, entered the ward and unplugged the life support system & plugged in the vacuum cleaner.
After a long time as per my schedule I am posting this Joke, dont forget guys I used to post a Sardarji joke (if it is good) each per week
Thanks to Basu for forwarding this.

Cricket fans always appreciate and applause for the guys who opens or plays in slog overs or the match winner. Mostly they wont bother about the backbone of the team whos really made a clear innings. "If cricket is our religion, Sachin is our God"..mmhmmm thn what happend to the middle order batsmen. My favorite is always Dravid, watching each and every ball of 50 overs a keeper, consistency in most of the matches, never gone in rest for hurt, even not taken rest in the past 5 years. Why is he is not honoured or provided a man of the match(rarely he used to get).
I was thinking that he should honoured global wise. Today morning while watchig BBC-1 I got the news that Rahul Dravid was crowned Player of the Year and Test Player of the Year at the inaugural International Cricket Council (ICC) awards at Alexandra Palace here (london) Tuesday. I proud of these award because now he is honoured not only Player of the year also the test player. I am so happy than Dravid.
Go Head Jammy, get more awards!

CHARLES DE GAULLE AIRPORT, France - Passengers at Paris's main airport who wander into the basement shopping section of Terminal One may spot a gaunt, moustachioed figure sitting amid a pile of boxes and scribbling fervently on a note pad. In the strange and timeless atmosphere of an international departure area, he pays little heed to the hordes who pass before him every day. He rises with the arrival of the first cleaner, washes and shaves in the public bathroom and eats takeaways from McDonald's.
If there is an air of permanence about him, that is not surprising. For Merhan Karimi Nasseri has been in the same spot for no less than 16 years. Caught originally in an immigration trap -- unable to enter France, nowhere to go - he has long since become psychologically dependent on his unusual choice of abode. He calls himself Sir Alfred, and this small section of airport parquet and plastic bench is his domain.
It is a peculiar story, and one which came several years ago to the ears of the Hollywood director Steven Spielberg. He saw its potential, and the result is "The Terminal," which opens in Europe and Asia next week after getting its European premiere Wednesday at the Venice film festival.
For Nasseri the film has meant tens of thousands of dollars (euros) reportedly -- but unverifiably -- paid over in royalties as well as a constant stream of gawking visitors and interested journalists. But life goes on unchanged, a movie poster above his arrangement of boxes and bags the sole concession to his new status as "the man who inspired The Terminal."
According to airport doctor Philippe Bargain, who visits him every week, Nasseri's physical health is fine, but his mental condition is another story. "He is on the same record as everyone else, just on a different track," he said. Thus details of his past life are hard to establish. It is known that he was born 59 years ago in Iran, and that he briefly attended Bradford University in Britain where he claims to have studied Slav languages. Returning to Iran he was imprisoned as a suspected dissident by the Shah's police and deported.
After that he was shunted between France, Italy and Belgium, trying unsuccessfully the while to reach Britain where he said his mother -- a British nurse -- was living. However today he denies this story. After periods of imprisonment for illegal entry, he parked himself at Charles de Gaulle airport in 1988. Though he says he dislikes his life at the terminal, he had the chance to leave in 1999 when he was granted refugee status. However seeing his name on the papers as Merhan Karimi Nasseri -- and not Sir Alfred -- he said they were forged and refused to sign.
Sir Alfred says he intends to live in New York -- indeed he claims the US visa is on its way -- but the truth is more banal. The man who inspired The Terminal is staying there.

In Uk, we are getting 5 free channels as cable connection is too costly so we didnt opted for that, also we need telephone for cable connection.Here TV Serials are more popular than India, the only difference is serials are mostly likely like live relay.
Bigbrother, a super-dooper hit serial comes every year for 75 days in BBC-4. A group of guys and girls start living in a house as they like, managed by a voice(big brother), each and every week as per the vote from Viewers they remove one person from the group. The person who stays till end get a huge amount(65,000 pound).This serial comes once in a year.
Average Joe, same like our Suyamvaram, a beautiful girl dates with 4 good physically built guys and 4 average guys. same like Bigbrother each and every episode one guy will be thrown as per that girls decision. Finally.. mm, she is not going to marry the guy, just sleep with him for 2 days. Nalla enjoy panrangapppaa. Inge kanna kasakitu parkira velai ellam ille, just live and get money or enjoyment.
Advertisement are also good to watch. But the documetary's are tooo good here. enjoying my final week as a Bachelor after my marriage(my wife coming here next week:)).
