<b>ABC of Bengali.... (drafted by a Bengali)</b>

A is for Office. This is where the average Kolkatan goes and spends a day hard(ly) at work. If he is in the Government he will arrive at 10, wipe his forehead till 11, have a tea break at 12, throw around a few files at 12.30, break for lunch at 1, smoke an unfiltered cigarette at 2, break for tea at 3, sleep sitting down at 4 and go home at 5. It's a hard life!

B is for Bhijon. (As in teli-bhijon) For some reason most of the Bengalis don't have good bhijon. In fact in Kolkata most people are wearing spectacles all the time. The effects of this show in the city.

C is for Chappell. This is the Bengali word for the Devil, for the worst form of evil. In the night mothers put their kids to sleep saying 'go to bed, or Chappei will come and take you away.'

D is for Debashish. By an ancient law every fourth Bengali Child has to be named Debashish. So you have a Debashish everywhere and trying to get creative they are also called Deb, Debu, Deba with variations like Debnath and Deboprotim thrown in.

E is for Eeesh. This is a very common Bengali exclamation made famous by Aishwarya Rai in the movie Devdas. It is estimated that on an average a Bengali uses eeesh 10,089 times every year. (That's counting eeesh and other eeesh-ish words).

F is for Feesh. These are creatures that swim in rivers and seas and are a favourite food of the Bengalis. Despite the fact that a fish market has such strong smells, with one sniff a Bengali knows if a fish is all right. If not, he will say 'eeesh, what feeesh is theeesh!'

G is for Good name. Every Bengali Boy will have a good name like Debashish or Deboprotim and a pet name like Shontuda, Chonti, and Dinku. While every Bengali Girl will be Paromita or Protima as well as Shampa, Champa and Tuki. Basically your nickname is there to kill your good name.

H is for Harmonium. The Bengali equivalent of a rock guitar. Take four Bengalis and a Harmonium and you have the successors to The Bheatles!

I is for lleesh. This is a feeesh with 10,000 bones which would kill any ordinary person, but which the Bengalis eat with releeesh!

J is for Jhola. No self respecting Bengali is complete without his Jhola. It is a shapeless cloth bag where he keeps all his belongings and he fits an amazing number of things in. Even as you read this there are 2 million jholas bobbling around Kolkata- and they all look exactly the same!

K is for Kee Kando. It used to be the favourite Bengali exclamation till eeesh took over because of Aishwarya Rai (now Kee Kando's agent is trying to hire Bipasha Basu).

L is for Lungi. People in Kolkata manage to play football and cricket wearing it. Now there is talk of a lungi expedition to Mt. Everest.

M is for Minibus. These are dangerous half buses whose antics would effortlessly frighten the living daylights out of Formula 1 race drivers.

N is for Nangtoe. This is the Bengali word for Naked. It is the most interesting naked word in any language!

0 is for Oil. The Bengalis believe that a touch of mustard oil will cure anything from cold (oil in the nose), to earache (oil in the ear), to cough (oil on the throat) to piles (oil you know where!)

P is for Phootball. This is always a phavourite phassion of the Kolkattan. Every Bengali is born an expert in this game. The two biggest clubs there are Mohunbagan and East Bengal and when they play the city comes to a stop.

Q is for Queen. This really has nothing to do with the Bengalis or Kolkata, but it's the only Q word I could think of at this moment. There's also Quilt but they never use them in Kolkata.

R is for Rabi Thakur. Many years ago Rabindranath got the Nobel Prize. This allows everyone in Kolkata to frame their acceptance speeches and walk with their head held high and look down at Delhi and Mumbai!

S is for Sardarjee whom Bengalis are very envious of because he is born with a semi-monkey cap on.

T is for Trams. Hundred years later there are still trams in Kolkata. Of course if you are in a hurry it's faster to walk.

U is for Ambrela. When a Bengali baby is born they are handed one.

V is for Violence. Bengalis are the most non-violent violent people around. When an accident happens they will shout and scream and curse and abuse, but the last time someone actually hit someone was in 1979.

W is for Water. For three months of the year the city is underwater and every year for the last 200 years the authorities are taken by surprise by this!

X is for X mas. It's very big in Kolkata, with Park Street fully lit up.

Y is for Yastarday. Which is always better than today for a Bengali.

Z is for Jeebra, Joo, Jip and Jylophone.

BHOMA: Tipsy devotees fallen on roadside is not an uncommon sight and is not something that is looked down on with disdain.

Though most of faiths of the world discourage believers from drinking liquor, but for devotees of Baba Rode Shah offering and receiving liquor in the form of parsad has been a ritual since 1924.

Devotees flashing bottles of liquor greets each other after paying obeisance at the samadhi of baba, where they arrive seeking mystical blessing. Not only people from in the vicinity come to pay obeisance at baba's smadhi , but several NRIs also make it a point to reach here during the annual fair with boxes of foreign liquor to 'appease' baba , who interestingly was a teetotaller.

At baba's samadhi , a large drum is kept to mix the 'offerings' and a 'cocktail parsad ' is given to baba's ardent devotees who gladly gulp it down. Issueless couples especially come here to seek baba's blessings.

The legend has it that Baba Rode Shah, who hailed from Dhiman village falling in Gurdaspur district had moved to Bhoma village in 1896 where his sister was married. Baba Rode Shah underwent austere penance and was endowed with mystical powers. He started helping people. Once, with his blessings, a child was born to an issueless couple, who brought a bottle of liquor for baba to show their gratitude, which baba distributed among his devotees.

Since then the tradition of offering liquor to Baba Rode Shah began. According to another legend, Baba Rode Shah had given shelter to one Sundar Singh, a bootlegger during the British regime. Despite all efforts by police, a miracle happened and he remained untraceable. Sundar Singh offered a bottle of liquor to Baba, who then distributed it among other devotees, said Puran Singh, one of the caretakers of the samadhi.

Des Raj, a devotee from Hoshiarpur, who arrived here along with six bottles of liquor to offer at smadhi of Baba Rode Shah after he was blessed with a son, was all praise for baba's mystical powers. He said though consuming liquor in large quantity was harmful, but its good if taken in small quantity. "

After all milk also causes problems if taken in large amount," he said. Davinder Singh another devotee of Baba Rode Shah said he along with his friends never misses to attend the mela . "We put up a make shift tent and spend all three days here by beginning our day with baba's prasad ," he said.

Universe a Global Village by 2020; US visa for all eligible
The other day, I was talking to my Chinese friend regarding global problems vis-a-vas India e.g. India has 15% population of world and 2% land of the worls whereas USA has 15% of land of the world and has 2% population of the world. Thereupon, Chinese suggested that there should be immigration pact between India and USA to bring the earth back to equlibrium as USA is ravaged by hurricanes, volcanoes and other nature's calamities. I am told by little bird that INS, USA overheard us and thinking of issuing visas to all eligible Indians.

Not only this but also they have started sending Indians on regular basis to explore Space e.g Suneeta is presently sprinting in Space and Kalpana Chawla earlier became martyr for the cause.

You may, please, add your wish list.

सहवाग न चले, सहरावत तो चल ही जाएगी
[Wednesday, April 11, 2007 09:20:27 am ]

आलोक पुराणिक

खिलाड़ी परेशान हैं और सही ही परेशान हैं। मॉडलिंग पर बैन लग गया, तो क्या करेंगे। मैंने सहवाग से इस संबंध में बात की-
आलोक पुराणिक उर्फ आपु- बोर्ड वाले पता नहीं क्यों, यह समझते हैं कि मॉडलिंग से टीम की परफॉरमेंस पर असर पड़ता है।
सहवाग- बोर्ड वाले नासमझ हैं। खिलाड़ी मॉडलिंग नहीं करेंगे तो क्या करेंगे।
आपु- नहीं, यूं तो करने को बहुत-कुछ है। आप चाहें तो क्रिकेट खेल सकते हैं।
सहवाग- आप समझने की कोशिश कीजिए। अगर मॉडलिंग कम कर दी गई, तो खिलाड़ियों के बीच आपस में लड़ाई-झगड़े बढ़ जाएंगे। अभी बैट्समैन आउट होने से पहले शूटिंग में बिज़ी होता है। आउट होने के बाद फिर शूटिंग में बिज़ी हो जाता है। अब खाली बैठेंगे, तो एक-दूसरे की टांग खींचेंगे। खिलाड़ियों को बिजी रहना चाहिए।
आपु- पर बिज़ी तो खेल में होना चाहिए। पब्लिक आप लोगों का खेल देखने आती है। आपका जिम्मा है कि खेल को इंट्रेस्टिंग बनाए रखें।
सहवाग- क्यों जी, इंट्रेस्टिंग बनाए रखने की जिम्मेदारी सिर्फ हमारी क्यों है, बोर्ड उसके लिए दूसरे इंतज़ाम क्यों नहीं कर सकता? अब आपने 'गुरु' फिल्म देखी थी या नहीं, उसको इंट्रेस्टिंग बनाए रखने की सारी जिम्मेदारी सिर्फ हीरो-हीरोइन की नहीं थी। मल्लिका सहरावत का एक आइटम डांस डाला गया था।
आपु- तो क्या आप यह चाहते हैं कि मैच से पहले मल्लिका जी एक आइटम डांस करें। पर मल्लिका जी का क्रिकेट से क्या मतलब?
सहवाग- आप बताइए गुरु फिल्म की स्टोरी से मल्लिका जी का कोई मतलब था? जब वह वहां हो सकती हैं, तो यहां क्यों नहीं हो सकतीं? इससे फायदा यह होगा कि सहवाग न भी चले तो सहरावत तो चल ही जाएंगी। पब्लिक का इंट्रेस्ट भी बना रहेगा।
आपु- क्या आप यह कहना चाहते हैं कि आगे से टीम जब भी अनाउंस हो, उसमें क्रिकेटरों के अलावा मल्लिका हों, प्रीति जिंटा हों?
सहवाग- नहीं, मेरे कहने का मतलब यह नहीं है। इंटरनैशनल लेवल बनाए रखने के लिए शकीरा और पामेला एंडरसन की सेवाएं भी ली जा सकती हैं। इंट्रेस्ट बनाए रखने में पूरे राष्ट्र को योगदान करना चाहिए। गोविंदाजी की इस मामले में बहुत ख्याति है। सरकाय ले खटिया टाइप गानों को छोड़ दिया जाए, तो भी वो अपने डांस से मामला जमा देते हैं। हम इंट्रेस्ट यूं भी पैदा कर सकते हैं कि शकीरा, पामेला के साथ गोविंदा का आइटम डांस करा दें, तो पब्लिक को इंट्रेस्ट आ जाएगा। सिद्धू साहब भी चलें, अपने लतीफे ठेलते रहें। गोविंदा फ्रॉम कांग्रेस, सिद्धू फ्रॉम बीजेपी, क्रिकेट में राष्ट्रीय एकता का माहौल हो जाएगा। पामेला फ्रॉम यूएसए और गोविंदा फ्रॉम इंडिया, क्रिकेट में इंटरनैशनल एकता का माहौल आ जाएगा।
आपु- तो क्या आप चाहते हैं, क्रिकेट टीम के साथ एक डांस और ऑर्केस्ट्रा टीम भी चले? और मैच से पहले यह आइटम डांस करे?
सहवाग- नहीं, मैच के पहले नहीं, बाद में करे। अगर डांस मैच से पहले ही हो जाएगा, तो फिर दर्शक डांस देखने के बाद ही भाग जाएंगे। दर्शकों के टेस्ट के हिसाब से कुछ चेंज हो सकता है। कानपुर में मैच हो, तो कुछ नौटंकी टाइप का डांस आइटम हो। मुंबई में लावणी पर आधारित डांस आइटम हो सकता है। अहमदाबाद में गरबा आधारित डांस हो सकता है। बोर्ड चाहेगा, तो क्रिकेटर भी डांस कर सकते हैं। फिटनेस ठीक रहेगी। हां, इसके लिए अलग से पेमेंट मिलना चाहिए।
आपु- आपको पेमेंट की ही पड़ी है। कोई जिम्मेदारी आपकी है या नहीं? क्रिकेट बोर्ड के अध्यक्ष शरद पवार जिम्मेदारी की बात कर रहे हैं।
सहवाग- हमने कभी शरद पवार से पूछा कि आप कृषि मंत्री हैं और देश में दालों के भाव सबके बजट की बाउंड्री से पार चल गए, यह किसकी जिम्मेदारी है?
आपु- देखिए, शरद पवार जी से कुछ सीखिए। वह आपके अध्यक्ष हैं।
सहवाग- देखिए, हम अगर शरद पवार से सीखने लगें, तो मामला बहुत डेंजरात्मक हो जाएगा। शरद पवार एकसाथ अपनी टीम के लिए भी खेलते हैं और अपनी अपोजिशन वाली टीम से भी सेटिंग-गेटिंग रखते हैं। अभी महाराष्ट्र के लोकल इलेक्शन में यही हुआ है। हम अगर क्रिकेट में यही करें, तो इस शरद पवाराना हरकत को फिक्सिंग-मिक्सिंग कहा जाएगा। समझे। हमें शरद पवार नहीं मल्लिका चाहिए। समझे कि नहीं।

वाह खूब! खुद ही जांच ली कापी

इलाहाबाद। पूर्वाचल के एक जिले के परीक्षार्थी ने परीक्षक का काम खुद ही कर डाला। उसने अपनी कापी के मेन पेज पर हर सवाल के नंबर खुद ही चढ़ा दिए और उसका टोटल भी कर दिया। जब परीक्षक के हाथ में यह कापी आई तो वह भी हैरत में पड़ गए। कापी को बोर्ड को वापस भेजने की तैयारी थी लेकिन बाद में इसका मूल्यांकन कर दिया गया।
कापी हाईस्कूल के सामाजिक विज्ञान के पहले प्रश्न पत्र की थी। सेवा समिति विद्या मंदिर इंटर कालेज में मूल्यांकन के लिए आई इस कापी में परीक्षार्थी ने खुद को 23 नंबर दिए थे। हालांकि उसने हल किए गए सवालों को नहीं जांचा था। बस नीली पेन से मेन पेज पर बने कालम जिसका प्रयोग परीक्षक करते हैं में खुद ही नंबर चढ़ा दिए थे। परीक्षकों को लगा कि किसी ने इस कापी का पहले से मूल्यांकन कर दिया है। लेकिन कालम में नीले रंग की स्याही से नंबर चढ़े होने से उनको संदेह हुआ। सवाल भी चेक नहीं थे। जबकि परीक्षक लाल रंग की पेन से मूल्यांकन करते हैं और वे सवालों में नंबर देने के बाद ही कालम में इसे चढ़ाते हैं। बात उप नियंत्रक ब्रजेश शर्मा के पास तक पहुंची। परीक्षार्थी के भविष्य को ध्यान में रखते हुए इस कापी का मूल्यांकन करवाया गया। दिलचस्प बात यह रही कि यह परीक्षार्थी इस प्रश्न पत्र में पास भी हो गया।


in Allahabad, one High School student examined his own paper and gave himselves marks, before submitting the papers, in the board examinations here. When the examiner got to checking the paper, he thought some other examiner has already checked it and was ready to move on. Then he got some doubt and saw that the marks were given by the student to himself, very cleverly on each page and in totals, just like an examiner would do. <!--emo&Big Grin--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' /><!--endemo-->

The subject was social sciences, and when eventually the paper was properly checked, the student passed too.

[Monday, May 07, 2007 12:53:50 am ]

बीकानेर (पीटीआई) : कॉलेज के स्टूडेंट्स दुलहन की तलाश में धूम धड़ाका करते हुए विमिंस हॉस्टल पहुंचे, लेकिन कोई भी लड़की उनके साथ आने को राजी नहीं हुईं, लिहाजा उन्हें खाली हाथ लौटना पड़ा। लेकिन इन स्टूडेंट्स को बुरा नहीं लगा। आप सोच रहे होंगे, दिल टूटे और किसी को बुरा न लगे, ऐसा होता है क्या...? कम से कम बीकानेर में तो ऐसा ही हुआ। हां, इस मौके पर स्टूडेंट्स की खातिरदारी जरूर की गई।

दरअसल यहां कॉलेज ऑफ वैटेरिनरी एंड ऐनिमल साइंसेज के स्टूडेंट को फेयरवेल यानी विदाई देने की यही परंपरा है। परंपरा के तहत स्टूडेंट्स दुलहन की तलाश में विमिंस हॉस्टल जाते हैं, लेकिन उन्हें खाली हाथ लौटा दिया जाता है। कॉलेज के डीन ए. के. गहलौत कहते हैं - यह हमारे कैंपस की दशक पुरानी परंपरा है, जिससे मेलजोल और इंटरेक्शन को बढ़ावा मिलता है।

बॉयज हॉस्टल में ऐसे विदाई समारोह की तैयारी एक दिन पहले ही शुरू हो जाती है। जूनियर और सीनियर दोनों ही मिलकर विदा किए जाने वाले बैच से चार दुलहे की तलाश करते हैं। ऐसे दुलहे से थोड़ी सी फीस वसूली जाती है। हालांकि दुलहे को आभूषण-कपड़े आदि का इंतजाम खुद करना पड़ता है। इस साल दुलहा बने जितेंद राजावत ने बताया कि अगर उस हॉस्टल में किसी स्ट्ूडेंट की गर्लफ्रेंड होती है, तो दुलहा बनने में उन्हें प्राथमिकता दी जाती है।

राजावत ने कहा कि पहले ही तरह इस साल भी हमें खाली हाथ भेज दिया गया। उन्होंने हालांकि कहा कि हमारी अच्छी खातिरदारी की गई। दुलहन की हमारी मांग को लड़कियों ने मुस्कराहट के साथ ठुकरा दिया।

New Delhi: Handling paper work, maintaining huge records and fighting crime at the same time. Tamil Nadu police perhaps have too much on their hands.

Otherwise, can you imagine a cycle being worth around Rs 90, 000? But according to a police record in Tamil Nadu, it is valued at over Rs 91,000.

Meanwhile,<b> an ordinary motorcycle is valued at over Rs 11 lakh. </b>And that’s not all. Another bloomer that could make you rich is by owning a moped, which the <b>police records value at over Rs 90 lakh.</b>

The 2006 annual report of the Comptroller and Auditor General of India lists quite a number of similar goofups, and it makes an amusing list.

For instance, in one particular case, <b>musical instruments were classified as Agricultural Products. </b>And another one is worth its letters in gold.

<b>Seventy grams of gold was valued at Rs 20 lakh!</b> Now we know why all that gold smuggled from the Gulf is sold here in the south.

The police seem to have hit the bull's eye with this one: <b>15,000 buffaloes reported lost in a single case.</b>

<b>A Boeing 747 jumbo, black in colour, is missing in Madurai and it's worth Rs 1,600.</b>

And here is a feat even Scotland Yard would envy. <b>There were 115 FIRs filed even before crimes were committed! Now that's what's called foresight</b>.

The police, however, are speechless when asked about the bloomers.

लालू के हेलिकाप्टर लैंडिंग के पीछे प्राकृतिक दवाब!

नई दिल्ली। बिहार में बाढ़ के हवाई सर्वेक्षण के दौरान अगर रेल मंत्री लालू यादव का हेलिकाप्टर हाईवे पर उतरा तो उसका कारण 'प्राकृतिक दबाव' था।
कानूनी पेंच में घिरे लालू यादव के बचाव में अब यही बताया जा रहा है कि सर्वे करने गई टीम के एक सदस्य को 'अत्यावश्यक प्राकृतिक क्रिया' महसूस हुई और ऐसे में पायलट ने स्वविवेक से हेलिकाप्टर को हाईवे पर उतारा था।
पूरी घटना के बाबत शनिवार को जहां लालू यादव ने चुप्पी बनाए रखी, वहीं वायु सेना में इंसपेक्टर जनरल, एयर सेफ्टी के पद पर रह चुके अवकाश प्राप्त एयर मार्शल डेंजल कीलर उनका बचाव करते दिखे।
फोन पर उन्होंने बताया कि एयर सेफ्टी कानून में पायलट को स्वविवेक से इमरजेंसी लैंडिंग का अधिकार दिया गया है। बिहार में भी ऐसा ही हुआ है।
दरअसल, हेलीकाप्टर पर मौजूद एक सदस्य को प्राकृतिक क्रिया महसूस हुई। उन्होंने पायलट को बताया और पायलट ने स्वविवेक से लैंडिंग की। इस बाबत एयर फोर्स ने भी रिपोर्ट मंगवाई है। रिपोर्ट में भी संभवत: यही बताया गया है।
