Days Without Worrying !!!

Some time back I came across a very good article on Yahoo groups site. I thought I should share the same with all of you.

There are two days in every week about which we should not worry, two days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension.

Can you guess which days I'm talking about?


You might be thinking that these days are Saturday and Sunday.

No, you're wrong!!!

One of these days is Yesterday with all its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains. Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control. All the money in the world cannot bring back Yesterday.

We cannot undo a single act we performed; we cannot erase a single word we said. Yesterday is gone forever.

The other day we should not worry about is Tomorrow with all its possible adversities, its burdens, its large promise and its poor performance; Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate control.

Tomorrow's sun will rise, either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds, but it will rise. Until it does, we have no stake in Tomorrow, for it is yet to be born.

This leaves only one day, Today. Any person can fight the battle of just one day. It is when you and I add the burdens of those two awful eternities, Yesterday and Tomorrow that we break down.

It is not the experience of Today that drives a person mad, it is the remorse or bitterness of something which happened Yesterday and the dread of what Tomorrow may bring.

Let us, therefore, Live but one day at a time.

And not to forget... Have a Wonderful Festive Season  !! :)

Ayesha Faridi - The Chartbuster is Back

Thank God, Ayesha Faridi is back after her European tour. Without her presence the TV looked so boring to me. The program ‘Market Sense’ that she co-hosts with Andy Mukherjee seemed like ‘Market Non-sense’ without her. As soon as she returned market started moving upwards to present her a big welcome. She aptly anchors the show ‘Chartbusters’ for she herself is the biggest chartbuster. Being a big fan of hers, I never miss any program anchored by her. Being a trader and investor in stock market, I have to watch Business Channels to keep myself constantly updated about market movements. And in such a hectic routine life Ayesha Faridi’s smile and charm keep me cheerful throughout the day. I love her for her charming personality, flamboyant style, captivating smile and unmatched anchoring skill.  But I think she has done a great injustice to her by joining ET Now as this channel doesn’t give her enough screen presence which is very important for any anchor to increase their fan-base. I would like to see her back at CNBC TV18 hosting alongside extremely beautiful Sonia Shenoy. Both Sonia Shenoy and Ayesha Faridi were irresistible when anchoring the shows like ‘Your Stocks’ et al.

ET NOW - So Far a Flop Show

It has been more than a year since ET Now –the new baby of Times Group- went on air, but it is nowhere close to its rival business channel CNBC TV-18. Although it has been able to attract many high profile anchors/presenters from other rival channels, it has failed to deliver in terms of contents. It now has one of the best team of anchors with likes of Ayesha Faridi, Tanvir Gill, Andy Mukherjee, Manisha Gupta, Devina Menon and Avanne Dubhash to name a few. But the channel has failed to utilize their talent well.

Firstly the camera work and visualization is much cluttered and not at all appealing. There are so many things on the screen- with two tickers, so many anchors and analysts in small box-like frames, recommendations from brokerage houses flashing all the time and many such distractions. All these things render the anchors hosting the show totally useless person with no focus on them. If it is going to be like this, then the day is not far when we will get to hear only the voice of an anchor with all the different kind of tickers and flashes all over the TV screen to strain your eyes.

Secondly, the stock tickers of ET Now are quite slow in comparison to other business channels. With so many stocks it takes ages to complete from A to Z stocks. Besides when there is an ad-break the tickers leave their continuity and are randomized. The only thing good about the tickers is that the number of stock is much larger in comparison to other biz channels. Otherwise the ticker management of this channel is quite poor.

Thirdly, the recommendations of stocks flashed continuously are quite boring. It only helps the brokerage houses at the cost of gullible investor/small traders. Moreover many such recommendations are absolutely non-sense. Beside there are many small things which needs correction if ET Now wants to compete with CNBC TV-18.

Man Vs Woman

A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he wants.
A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't want

A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.

A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

Married men live longer than single men.
But married men are a lot more willing to die.

Any married man should forget his mistakes.
No sense two people remembering the same thing

Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.
Women somehow deteriorate during the night.

A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change and she does.


A woman has the last word in any argument.
Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.
