For all the Bahu’s or Bahu’s To Be :)

mom

 A long time ago in China , a girl named Li-Li got married & went to live
with her husband and mother-in-law. In a very short time, Li-Li found that
she couldn’t get along with her mother-in-law at all. Their personalities
were very different, and Li-Li was angered by many of her mother-in-law’ s
habits. In addition, she criticized Li-Li constantly.

Days passed, and weeks passed. Li-Li and her mother-in-law never stopped
arguing and fighting. But what made the situation even worse was that,
according to ancient Chinese tradition, Li-Li had to bow to her
mother-in-law and obey her every wish. All the anger and unhappiness in the
house was causing Li-Li’s poor husband! d great distress.

Finally, Li-Li could not stand her mother-in-! law’s bad temper and
dictatorship any longer, and she decided to do something about it! Li-Li
went to see her father’s good friend, Mr. Huang, who sold herbs. She told
him the situation and asked if he would give her some poison so that she
could solve the problem once and for all.

Mr. Huang thought for awhile, and finally said, “Li-Li, I will help you
solve your problem, but you must listen to me and obey what I tell you.”

Li-Li said, “Yes, Mr. Huang, I will do whatever you tell me to do.”Mr. Huang
went into the back room, and returned in a few minutes with a package of
herbs. He told Li-Li, “You can’t use a quick-acting poison to get rid of
your mother-in-law, because that would cause people to become suspicious
Therefore, I have given you a number of herbs that will slowly build up
poison in her body. Every other day prepare some delicious meal and put a
little of these herbs in her serving.

Now, in order to make sure that nobody suspect you, when she dies, you must
be very careful to act very friendly towards her. “Don’t argue with her,
obey her every wish, and treat her like a queen.” Li-Li was so happy. She
thanked Mr. Huang and hurried home to start her plot of murdering her
mother-in-law. Weeks went by, and months went by, and every other day, Li-Li
served the specially treated food to her mother-in-law. She remembered what
Mr. Huang had said about avoiding suspicion, so she controlled her temper !
r, obeyed her mother-in-law, and treated her like her own mother.

After six months had passed, the whole household had changed. Li-Li had
practiced controlling her temper so much that she found that she almost
never got mad or upset. She hadn’t had an argument with her mother-in-law in
six months because she now seemed much kinder and easier to get along with.

The mother-in-law’ s attitude toward Li-Li changed, and she began to love
Li-Li like her own daughter. She kept telling friends and relatives that
Li-Li was the best daughter-in- law one could ever find. Li-Li and her
mother-in-law were now treating each other like a real mother and daughter.
Li-Li’s husband was very happy to see what was happening. One day, Li-Li
came to see Mr. Huang and asked for his help again She said, “Dear Mr.
Huang, please help me to keep the poison from killing my mother-in-law.
She’s changed into such a nice woman, and I love her like my own mother. I
do not want her to die because of the poison I gave her.”

Mr. Huang smiled and nodded his head. “Li-Li, there’s nothing to worry
about. I never gave you any poison. The herbs I gave you were vitamins to
improve her health. The only poison was in your mind and your attitude
toward her, but that has been all washed away by the love which you gave to
her.”

HAVE YOU REALIZED that how you treat others is exactly how they will treat
you? There is a wise Chinese saying: “The person who loves others will also
be loved in return.” God might be trying to work in another person’s life
through you. Send this to your friends and spread the POWER OF LOVE.

Remember, if you delete this mail nothing will happen. No one will die or
fall sick. But… if you send it to others you may change their life. After
all you have got nothing to lose but a lot to gain.

The Husband Store

A store that sells husbands has just opened in New York City, where a
woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance
is a description of how the store operates. You may visit the store
ONLY ONCE!

There are six floors and the attributes of the men increase as the
shopper ascends the flights. There is, however, a catch. … You may choose
any man from a particular floor, or you may choose to go up a floor,
but you cannot go back down except to exit the building! So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband. .

On the first floor the sign on the door reads:
Floor 1 – These men have jobs and love the Lord.

The second floor sign reads:
Floor 2 – These men have jobs, love the Lord, and love kids.

The third floor sign reads:
Floor 3 – These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, and are
extremely good looking.

“Wow,” she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.

She goes to the fourth floor and sign reads:
Floor 4 – These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, are drop- dead good looking and help with the housework.

“Oh, mercy me!” she exclaims, “I can hardly stand it!”

Still, she goes to the fifth floor and sign reads:
Floor 5 – These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, are drop- dead gorgeous, help with the housework, and have a strong romantic streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor and the sign reads:
Floor 6 – You are visitor 4,363,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please.
Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store. Watch your step as you exit the building, and have a nice day!

Please share this to all men for a good laugh and to all the women who can handle the truth!

Desi and Videshi

 Two men, one Western and a desi were sitting in a bar drinking

shot after shot.

The Desi man said to the Western,”You know my parents are forcing

me to get married to this so called homely girl from a village whom I

haven’t even met once.We call this arranged marriage.I don’t want to

marry a woman whom I don’t love…I told them that openly and now

have a hell lot of family problems.”

The Western said, “Talking about love marriages… I’ll tell you my

story.

I married a widow whom I deeply loved and dated for 3 years.

“After a couple of years, my father fell in love with my step-

daughter and so my father became my son-in-law and I became my

father’s father-in-law.

My daughter is my mother and my wife my grandmother.

More problems occurred when I had a son. My son is my father’s

brother and so he is my uncle. Situations turned worse when my father

had a son. Now my father’s son i.e. my brother is my grandson.

Ultimately, I have become my own grand father and I am my own

grandson.

And you say you have family problems..

Gimme a break !!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!! !!!!!

Happiness is like a butterfly…

The more you chase it, the more it will elude you…

But if you turn your attention to other things…

It comes and softly sits on your shoulder…

Don’t seek happiness… Happiness will find you!!!

Rules of life

 RULE 1: Life is not fair; get used to it.

RULE 2: The world won’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

RULE 3: You will NOT make 40 thousand dollars a year right out of high school. You won’t be a vice president with a car phone, until you earn both.

RULE 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. He doesn’t have tenure.

RULE 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping; they called it opportunity.

RULE 6: If you mess up, it’s not your parents’ fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

RULE 7: Before you were born, your parents weren’t as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills; cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you are. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parents’ generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.

RULE 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life has not. In some schools they have abolished failing grades; they’ll give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn’t bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

RULE 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don’t get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on your own time.

RULE 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

RULE 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one.

Don’t regret …follow your heart :)

  Horror gripped the heart of a World War-I soldier, as
he saw his lifelong friend fall in battle. The soldier
asked his Lieutenant if he could go out to bring his
fallen comrade back.

“You can go,” said the Lieutenant,” but don’t think it
will be worth it.

Your friend is probably dead and you may throw your
life away.”

“The Lieutenant’s words didn’t matter, and the soldier
went anyway.

Miraculously, he managed to reach his friend, hoisted
him onto his shoulder and brought him back to their
company’s trench. The officer checked the wounded
soldier, then looked kindly at his friend.

“I told you it wouldn’t be worth it,” he said. “Your
friend is dead and you are mortally wounded.”

“It was worth it, Sir,” said the soldier.

“What do you mean by worth it?” responded the
Lieutenant. “Your friend is dead.”

“Yes Sir,” the soldier answered, “but it was worth it
because when I got to him, he was still alive and I
had the satisfaction of hearing him say…
” Jim…I knew you’d come.”

*******
Many times in life, whether a thing is worth doing or
not, really depends on how u look at it.

Take up all your courage and do something your heart
tells you to do so that you may not regret not doing
it later in your life…l

Enjoy your hot chocolate.

A group of graduates, well established in their careers, were talking at a reunion and decided to go visit their old university professor, now retired. During their visit, the conversation turned to complaints about stress in their work and lives. Offering his guests hot chocolate, the professor went into the kitchen and returned with a large pot of hot chocolate and an assortment of cups – porcelain, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite – telling them to help themselves to the hot chocolate.

When they all had a cup of hot chocolate in hand, the professor said: “Notice that all the nice looking, expensive cups were taken, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress. The cup that you’re drinking from adds nothing to the quality of the hot chocolate. In most cases it is just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink. What all of you really wanted was hot chocolate, not the cup; but you consciously went for the best cups… And then you began eyeing each other’s cups.

Now consider this: Life is the hot chocolate; your job, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain life. The cup you have does not define, nor change the quality of life you have. Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the hot chocolate God has provided us. God makes the hot chocolate, man chooses the cups. The happiest people don’t have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything that they have. Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. And enjoy your hot chocolate.
