Probably Stealing or smuggling?
The really sad part is this Boy probably 12-13 years of age is being held because he is a Suicide Bomber. The questions which hits my head is how can such a young boy be ready to kill a few hundred people! Whats his purpose behind it? Does he even realize that he is also ending his own life?
This Kid should be in school studying or playing with toys or his friends! Why is he ending his life? Its obvious that hes not matured enough to make such a decision but who is making him do this? Who is responsible?
Are the terrorists brain washing these children in the name of Islam? Dont they realize that what they are doing is a sin by using a minor and taking other lives??
God Bless the world and i hope these children are guided the right way.

What is courage?
A Spiritual Quality which makes you face your pain or fear.
What is the meaning of Courage?
Is it to fight a bull in a bullfight?
Is it to drive a formula 1 car?
Is it to fly a fighter in combat?
Is it to practice free fall parachuting?
Is it bungee jumping, wild water rafting?
Is it to gamble your salary on a coin toss?
Is it to insult the doorman in a bar?
Is it to insult your boss?

Michael Joseph Jackson (born 29th August 1958) was a gifted child, a born entertainer. He started his career with his elder brothers and was managed by his father, They were known as The Jackson 5. Even though this group was doing well, All eyes were on the little child in the front.He started his solo career and started his journey to Success, he was the first African-American to have such a great fan following and in his late teens he was known and loved all over the world by millions. Off the wall, Bad and Thriller are some of his record breaking albums that sold millions around the world and making him appear in the Guinness World Records as "The Most Successful Entertainer of All Time"!! His achievements include 13 Grammy's, 13 singles that have been on the charts for years. Michael Jackson was in the eyes of billions having a great deal of fortune and fame, eventually he had to pay a price by being exploited by the Media. Michael as a young teen was teased about his the size of his nose which caused him to go under knife the 1st time, over the years he went through many surgery's. Starting from a cute Black American who won the hearts of billions around the world had transformed himself into a white man. No one knows why he went through this, what made him do it to himself, People still say if kept his natural looks he would be the Greatest Entertainer of all time. Fact remains besides this conversion he still remains one of the Greatest. Michael Jackson's down fall came when he was charged of Molesting young children, the Media made his Life a living Hell even though was proved innocent the media had destroyed his Image, in front of the Public. Even though Michael Jackson was still loved by billions he could not recover from the damage the Media had done. His dancing and singing skills have been unique and has inspired many of today's entertainers. Over the years Michael Jackson had been involved in many charities and helped millions. Sadly he is no longer with us (a huge loss for the Entertainment Industry) One thing is for sure he will not be forgotten and will live in our hearts forever!
"Heal The WorldHe will live in our hearts forever. May his Soul rest in peace
Make It A Better Place
For You And For Me
And The Entire Human Race
There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough
For The Living
Make A Better Place
For You And For Me"

Financial Planning is must for everyone from the lower right up to the Upper Class.
Financial Planning has been taught to every child, even you! Remember your Mom telling you don’t buy this don’t buy that it’s not good for you and stuff?? Yup! That was one of your important lessons.. But we as children ignored the Financial Planning lesson and ran out and bought sugary candy which just made us Nuts and eventually drove our Parents Nuts (If you are laughing now don’t forget you will have kids of your own)
The Ideal expense to pay check ratio would be 1 : 2 or even better 1 : 3 and so on.
Every Company aims for it and so should you!
But unfortunately not many get it that way.
But roughly even if you are saving 1/3 of your pay check you are doing well enough.
People are spending a lot on Financial Planning, getting people to help balance their lives. Don’t forget you got to pay people for Financial Planning!
So instead of paying someone for a solution here are some Financial Planning Rules, to keep your self balanced and live a Happy Life.
My Financial Planning MUST-DO List
Financial Planning rule no. 1
STOP using Credit Cards:
As convenient as it is, it’s an added expense and a very good reason to spend money. Only use Credit Cards where necessary. Consider this step as a bad habit and drop it where Financial Planning is concerned.
Financial Planning rule no. 2
Get rid of your Loans:
This is must you have no idea, how light you will feel.
Speak to your Bank and pay more to get rid of them faster.
Financial Planning rule no. 3
Buy in Bulk:
When you buy grocery in bulk not only you get them cheaper you can use them for longer. For e.g. you use 3 soap bars in a week instead of getting just 3 next week, get a pack of 10 you will get it cheaper plus you will save time and money to go back to the Store the following week. Use this Financial Planning rule where ever possible.
Financial Planning rule no. 4
Cut down on luxuries:
You don’t need to eat out everyday, Cook at home sometimes, its healthy (that’s if you know how to cook) and cheaper, Apply this Financial Planning rule where ever possible.
Financial Planning rule no. 5
Get to the 1 : 2 Ratio:
Try as hard as you can to reach to this ratio, earning at least twice as much as your Expenses. This step is a very important step in Financial Planning!
Financial Planning rule no. 6
Save money on Gas.
An article on saving money on Gas can be found "here"
Financial Planning rule no. 7 (to be continued)

Amazing as it is! Google Maps is the best application ever.. today i watched the Eiffel Tower from at least 20 feet away. You know how?? Google Maps!!Its a lot of fun for People who like to travel plus its handy as far searching for maps is concerned. Google's Invention is absolutely brilliant. But! Give it a thought, if i can see the Eiffel Tower from a different continent as if i was standing there right in front of it. How will an Evil mind use this application??
Just to make sure i used Google Maps and traveled around the Eiffel Tower than browsed through New York City Streets, checked the lanes, buildings, the roads etc.. Its like you are actually standing there and checking everything out.. the 360 degree feature is awesome!!
If given some time i can get used to the streets of new york! Did Google give it a thought before launching Google Maps?
I found the following information on Wikipedia.."Satellite view
Google Maps provides high-resolution satellite images for most urban areas in Canada, and the United States (including Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands) as well as parts of Australia and many countries. Google Maps also covers many cities.
Various governments have complained about the potential for terrorists to use the satellite images in planning attacks. Google has blurred some areas for security (mostly in the United States), including the U.S. Naval Observatory area (where the official residence of the Vice President is located), and previously the United States Capitol and the White House (which formerly featured this erased housetop). Other well-known government installations, including Area 51 in the Nevada desert, are visible. Not all areas on satellite images are covered in the same resolution. Places that are less populated are usually not covered in as much detail as populated areas. In some areas, there are patches of clouds which make the map cluttered"
Even if Google tries to hide the Main Buildings would it matter? If you can see the surrounding areas you can easily make an escape route or devise a plan of any sort.
I was told that if I post this Article.. Google might Suspend my account :D
I am giving it a thought but lets see how it goes.. If you do not see any New Posts, assume that Google Deleted my account.

When you hear this country's name "Pakistan" what comes in your mind?? Osama, terrorist, taliban, HELL!!??
Well i do not blame you that's what the Media covers and that is what you see. Pakistan is blamed for terrorism, bad Government sometimes when you are browsing through the News Channels.. there is always something bad happening in Pakistan.
Just a couple days ago there was a Bomb Blast in Lahore killing some 30+ people and injuring 200 something, Yes that is very sad.. but painfully enough that is the truth and to top it of we are led by the worst choice of people. I with many people Hope for a better future for Pakistan.
Pakistan translated means the "Land of the Pure" it sounds like a joke to you doesn't it?I still do not blame you. Just to clarify some points!
-Pakistan is not under developed
-Pakistan is not a poor country
-Pakistan is not weak
Why the Government is still asking for loans from the world bank? (God Knows!)
How much of these Loans are used to benefit Pakistan? (God Knows)
Well the images of Pakistan in your head are disturbing but following are some pictures of Pakistan that not a lot people know about not even Pakistani's.These Places would have been one of the best Tourists Spots in the World which could earn Pakistan a lot of foreign Currency but unfortunately due to lack of security Mother Nature's Beauty is going to waste.
hope one day you can come here to visit without having ANY fear in your heart.

They say on an average an adult American spends 142 Minutes a Day on the Computer that’s like 2 hour+ a day, keeping in mind that there is a huge Amount that spends 8-12 hours a DAY. Now that’s a lot of time in front of a Computer but you can’t help it! It’s become a need for every one.
But while the Computer has made life a lot easier, it’s got its Flaws! Almost everyone will know that it affects the eyesight, spine and so on. But a very few know about “CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME”
Carpal tunnel syndrome (also known as median neuritis) is a painful condition of the hands and wrists. It is caused by pressure on the median nerve, which runs from the shoulder, down the arm, to the hand. In advanced cases, carpal tunnel syndrome can make the simplest chore or activity impossible, such as holding a frying pan, folding laundry or lifting an infant.
For more information please visit the following URL
The following images show a surgery of a Patient suffering from “Carpal tunnel syndrome”
Painful as it looks, this condition can be avoided. The following Images show what we can do to avoid this Condition
Hand Exercises for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The Next time you are In front of the Screen, Consider using these techniques!!

hmm.. What can I say? I know I am a few days late, couldn’t help it.. Was a bit busy But it’s not too late.
I dedicate this post to every woman who gave birth to a child especially to the woman who gave birth to me, who cares
For me, loves me and has been there for me since day NO.1 My Mother, Theresa D'souza.
They say no love is more pure, than a mother's. No one in the world can deny it! But I would like to add that there is vast difference between a woman who gave birth and A Mother, but in both cases a woman or a mother can not ignore her Childs pain. This article wont do justice to any "Mother" because no matter what I write or how beautifully I portray her it can never compete with what she’s worth?, how she feels? Or what she does for her children?
From the time she finds out that a fetus is growing in her womb, she becomes a Mother. (I wonder how my mother must have felt?...) She feeds you, takes care of you even though indirectly but still. A Mother never stops loving her children infact the love just matures and increases day by day.
Even when you were little she would be chasing you to feed you, shouting and scolding when you were being naughty.
There might have been times when you just must have felt that your Mother is unfair and harsh, but that just another form of Love. The reason she did that because she cared for you, it’s just a sad thing that we fail to realize that Pure Love and realize it after all those Years.
The Strongest Impact in a persons Life comes from A Mother, I don’t mean to say that Father's have no importance.
A Father also plays an important role in a Childs up bringing but it’s a fact that a Mother has a stronger Impact.
There are some cases where, Some Mom's are a bit off.. But that will be just 1 in a million.
Even though we say it's a Man's world (I say it too!! Proudly :D) but you cant deny it that this so called "Man's World" started from A Woman.
There are times when we don’t turn out to be the perfect Children and ignore our Mother's feelings as adults and take her for granted, it’s sad but true. Did you anytime think how she must have felt?? NO! Maybe yes..
Imagine raising a pup you feed it, take care of it, wipe his left over's.. :D and it ends up licking the neighbors feet! Well it’s not the best example but you get the Point right??
God Made Man, than he Made Woman and since than Women Are making MEN... its a bit off..
Come to think of it.. But it proves a point, there might be some of you'll who disagree and saying that I shouldn’t compare My Mother to God! But I am not comparing them, God's a superior power, he rules the world and A Mother is a Woman with a Child!
But I do believe she is Substituting for God and I owe my Life to her...!!
I am not asking you to devote 12 hours a day to your mother... 12 seconds of a hug, with a small thank you would mean the world to her.. That’s how a Mother feels! That’s the Difference!
My 10 favorite Quotes for All the Mum's, Ma's, Mom's Mother's etc etc etc...They all have something for us to learn from..
"I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life."
Sweater, n.: garment worn by child when its mother is feeling chilly. ~Ambrose Bierce (Most beautiful Quote ever!!)
"If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands?" ~Milton Berle
"[A] mother is one to whom you hurry when you are troubled." ~Emily Dickinson
"A father may turn his back on his child, brothers and sisters may become inveterate enemies, husbands may desert their wives, wives their husbands. But a mother's love endures through all." ~
"One good mother is worth a hundred schoolmasters." ~George Herbert
"Mother - that was the bank where we deposited all our hurts and worries." ~T. DeWitt Talmage
"All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother." ~Abraham Lincoln
"Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother." ~Oprah Winfrey
"A man loves his sweetheart the most; his wife the best, but his mother the longest." ~Irish Proverb
I love my Mother...
If it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t be here writing this Post.
Thank you Ma' for everything!!

Abortion – Murder or A RIGHT?? Well this is one question which has not been answered in ages! On one hand it’s the perfect solution for unwanted/teenage pregnancies and on the other its Murder!!
Considering that these fetus’s in a few months be living Human beings
Than abortion is Murder of course it is!, on the other hand Human Rights Activists are against abortion because of the fact that it is Murder but than snatching away the Right! from a teenage girl to abort her unplanned pregnancy doesn’t that too come under violation of Human Rights??
Aborting a Fetus due to medical reasons such as disability or any other cause should that be allowed? I guess so. Teenage Pregnancy is a major issue in many parts of the world, infact most parts of the world.
Its not that the problem of Teenage Pregnancy has been ignored in the Past, Birth Control pills, condoms are a few solutions provided to these Teenagers But its a sad truth that it hasn’t been very effective.
Abortion is not as safe as it seems, there are reported cases of death due to abortion and sadly not all of them are reported officially.
If a pregnant woman is murdered, some U.S. states have laws which consider the status of fetal being as a living person, charging separate counts of death for the woman and fetus. There are People agree that incase of Pregnant Women being murdered there are 2 death counts and at the same time support Abortion.
Most Religions including Christianity, Islam and Buddhism are against Abortion but in a few cases give it permission.
The Conclusion?? Well I believe that Abortion of a fetus is Murder at the same time I support the rights for women who are not ready for their unplanned pregnancies.
Is Abortion right or wrong?? What do you say?
Do let me know what you think!!

The Images below are Rated they are not to be viewed by children under 18!
I received this e-mail a couple of days ago subjected: Unbelievable!! I didn’t even think twice before clicking on that subject…. (I regret it) all I thought that this would be an e-mail filled with some insane stunts or something interesting or funny. What else can one expect with a subject like that and it’s sent from a friend.
Here goes… if you are not an adult or some one with a weak gutt stop reading now!
I know it sounds unbelievable and the worst part is that it’s true, anyone reading this article and can do something about this horrifying issue please do. Any Chinese citizen who Is reading this, I am not judging but if you can do some thing don’t hold back this is your chance to report these demons and let the local authority separate these animals from our world don’t forget this is happening in your Homeland. I am hating publishing this post, but I can’t help it I have to do my part and SPREAD THE WORD.
A town in Canton is now taking baby herbal soup (yes you read it correct!!!) to increase health and sexual performance/stamina. The cost in China currency = approx $4000. A factory manager was interviewed and he testified that it is effective because he is a frequent customer. It is a delicacy whereby expensive herbs are added to boil the baby with chicken meat for 8 hours boiling/steaming.
He pointed to his second wife next to him, who is 19 (he is 62), and testified that they
have sex everyday. After waiting for a couple of weeks, he took this reporter to the
restaurant when he was informed by restaurant Manager that the spare rib soup
(local code for baby soup) was now available.
This time, it was a couple who have 2 daughters and this 3rd one was confirmed to be a daughter again. So the couple aborted the baby which was 5 months old. Those babies close to be born and die naturally costs 2000 in China currency. Those aborted ones cost a few hundreds in China Currency. Those couples who did not want to sell dead babies, placentas can be accepted also for couple of hundreds.
The reporter making comment that is this the problem arise from Chinese being taking too much attention in health or is the backfire when China introduced one child in a family policy (since majority prefers to have male babies and those poorer families need ended up selling their female babies.) This is Insanely stupid!!! The images below are evidence.. there are a few missing due to space issues..
PLEASE DO YOUR PART!!!!!!!

like previous posts i am going to jot pointers down so you wont strain your eyes reading and reading and reading... So here goes
My List for improving fuel efficiency for Cars
1. Check for the fuel cap
Yes that is a very important. If your cars fuel cap is loose the fuel in your car is bound to evaporate. So the next time you see you car, just take a minute and check the fuel cap.
2. Park your car In the Shade
This one will relate to the above pointer, you'll will be knowing that your fuel will evaporate and even if the car is switched off. And its not parked in the shade, than your car will warm up and slowly the fuel will evaporate. So the next time you want to park your car look for shade..!
3. Drive within the speed limit.
I know some of you'll just ignored this one cause you'll just need to jam on the accelerator as you rev up your cars engine thinking of it as a racecar but trust me by driving within speed limits its not only good for other people's health but it will also save you some cash each time because when you drive fast your car will consume more fuel.
4. Stop! at a RED light!
when ever waiting in front of a Red light is your car moving?? No right? than why waste the fuel? relax calm down and wait for the the Green. you will save up at least a couple hundred!!
5. Pump it up!!
I mean your Cars Tires. If your cars tires are under inflated it doesn't just wear them it even effects the cars mileage !!!
6. Give your car the right treatment!
This is not exactly a way to chip off on fuel but a general way to save a lot of money.
From changing motor oil to putting the appropriate fuel,
from changing air filters to washing your car. If you take care of your car it will take care of you. So consider giving your car the maintenance it deserves if you don't it will cost you way more than you could think off!
I'll end this post with a little trivia
There's a 7 letter word in the English Language, when spelled backwards forms the same word.. You can tell me your answer with your comments!!!
Hint: i have used that particular word in this post! will look forward to your answer!
Dear Reader hope you save up on fuel & do leave comments!
Till next time...

But I will help you guys with some tips to improve your game of Snooker, billiards, pool or 8 ball , now i don't promise you that you'll will be able to become Pro's but it will help you Improve your Snooker game. Billiards, Pool, Snooker or 8 ball are all different games, but concept of them is the same even though the cue or the balls maybe different but these tips will come in handy no matter if you are playing any of the above mentioned games: "Billiards, Pool, Snooker or 8 ball"
Now you are going to hear all kind of ways. for e.g back leg straight front leg bent.... etc etc
The Key is to be comfortable when standing, if you are comfortable with bending your Leg than bend it.
A good way is, Once the Object ball stops you walk up to the object ball stand straight, opposite to the direction you want to hit the ball in. Than Bend, being parallel to the table.
Now this is also an important part, assuming your grip hand is right. Your left hand will on the table and your right hand the "grip hand" will be holding the Cue from the bottom.
Stretch your left palm as comfortably as you can including your thumb. Once you are comfortable get a grip on the carpet for a firm base, as if you are trying to hold the carpet. now once you got a nice firm base lift your thumb sticking it to your knuckles creating a "V" Shape . that's where the front of cue will keep rocking back and forth.
Now we will focus on the hand which is holding the cue the "grip hand" from the bottom. Remember comfort, gripping Cue firmly with your Index and thumb squeezing it enough that it does not fall or dangle and letting the rest of the fingers wrap around it.
This is one of the key elements of a good shot. When approaching the table for your shot, look for the possible pots. See for the one you can play successfully and comfortably. Once you Select the shot, create a blue print of where you have to hit the object ball for it can travel to the desired Pocket. Once you have an image of what you should play for the shot to be successful. You are ready!!
The final step to consider always. Now you know everything but how do you take a proper shot. SIMPLE!! keep the image of where you have to hit the object, keep the blue print in your head. before you strike move the cue back and front as in rocking a baby...! just for final adjustments, now look at your cue ball, see where you have to hit it and than that's it do not look back at the cue ball. while rocking back and front with your grip hand. keep your eyes on the object ball and keep your eyes on it. After you strike, do not lift your head up. Follow through with your shot wait till the cue ball touches the object ball and check your shot. Analyze your shot for the next one.
To check angles you can always play pool online and you can always download snooker 147 the online game, which has been on my PC for years.
I am no O'Sullivan or Jimmy White. I am just an average player. Keep these points in your head the next time you go to play snooker. Trust me your Game will IMPROVE.
Cheers leave your comments.

First things first parenting is not an easy job & I am totally against Tutors for children, i know education is important but Sending a Child to school than sending him again for a few hours to a Tutor that’s just too much for a child! We as adults work for 8-10 hours daily even we cant take it some times and doing that to a child by sending them to a Tutor that’s just wrong! Most of us have to take loads of cups of tea and Coffee just to keep our self awake at work and some of us smoke to keep our heads together. What can a child do?? Drink loads of coffee? Smoke.
Hell NO! [By the way do not get your child addicted to coffee or tea]
Well there are parents who don’t have the time for their children education, that’s just an exception for where both parents are working late hours and they need to send their children to a Tutor. For the rest 70-80%, at least one of the parents would be coming earlier who could supervise their Children. Let’s face it, sending your child to a Tutor is just the easy way out. So here is my message for those lazy parents who don’t want to give some time (quality time) to their children’s education!
Some of you all might be saying that your child can’t keep up with the pressure of studying and this generations education, I agree but just in exceptional cases! If your child cant keep up, go speak to the teacher ask him/her to give your child extra attention don't just start finding a Tutor . SPEAK to them! It’s not a big deal; children take time adjusting, if your child’s teacher can’t help your child. Than that’s the teachers fault not the child’s (there are a few cases where children have problems and they do need extra help)
Instead of writing a whole bunch of paragraphs (I know some you’ll are like when this post will get over…) so I am just going to jot a few pointers, as to why your child doesn’t need a Tutor!
- 4-5 hours of school education is more than enough, Do not over work his/her head with a Tutor.
- There is a big chance children might think that he/she is not normal as to other Children and he needs extra help. That will just destroy his confidence.
- The difference between a Good student and an Average student. Is application! If your child learns 2+2=4 like a parrot. What’s the point?
- This point links with the one above. Your children will become dependent on Tuitions; he/she will never apply what he learns at school. Common think about it. As a child your teacher is trying to explain something on the board and you have an option of going for tuitions!
Will you pay attention or will you think; hell I go for tuitions! My tutor is going to explain me the exact same thing when I go for tuitions. WHY SHOULD I PAY ATTENTION NOW???!!
- Your children will learn to be responsible (he/she will pay attention to their education cause they wont have a back up)
- Your child will know the difference between play time and education.
- A tutor is there for the money! He doesn’t care if your child understands anything as long as your child passes his tests.
To all Parents: Tuition for your children is not the best option for everyone, if you analyze your children yourself you will know. You taught him to walk, eat, talk etc etc... You know your children better than anyone.
If you honestly think he needs professional help; only than arrange for a Tutor otherwise put in a few hours of your day and your child will turn out just fine.
please rate this article and leave your comments.
i promise to reply As soon as possible.

Everybody is just waiting for Obama to Bring a change and not just In the United States but but to bring change in the whole world! That's quite a big responsibility, Of course he did know that when he stood for the elections.
The Question everyone asks these days, will Obama clean the mess the previous President made? will he be able to stabilize Americas Economy? Will he end the War in IRAQ? Will Obama be able take down Al-Qaeda? The list can go on...
The only thing People can do as far as Obama's concerned is wait! Personally after Listening to Obama's Speeches, even i am convinced he will be able to bring World Piece.
The guy is educated, he is into sports he relates to every American from the Middle class to the Upper. you'll must have seen pictures of Obama playing Basket Ball, As some one who does like Basket Ball, alot of us have to accept Obama can Play Basketball! Imagine George Bush playing BasketBall :D
His Agenda for Foreign Policy Include
a. Capturing Nuclear Materials from Terrorists:
His time line for capturing all Materials, is 4 years & try to Ban production of Nuclear Materials.(4 years is quite a lot of time Mr. Obama)
b. End Threat from Iran.
Obama will Offer membership in the WORLD TRADE Organization if Iran stopped their support to Terrorist.
c. Renew American Diplomacy
Obama will rebuild alliances. Meet with all nations, friend and foe, to increase American interests.
No Doubt Obama's Main focus would be to offend the Al-Qaeda and other Terrorists to regain World piece he is willing to provide resources to all other Nations to fight the war on Terror Including Pakistan!
Which these days is like a Terrorist Joint. Just in the Beginning of 2009, The Sri Lankan Cricketers were shot and wounded, the tour was abandoned, when i seen the videos of the hidden security cameras i was shocked to see how a bunch of guys escaped so easily passing by a Police vehicle without being noticed, riding bikes with Guns sticking out of their backpacks and than recently the Terror attack in a POLICE ACADEMY killing above 10 recruits, both these incidents were taken place in Lahore.
keeping in mind the havoc which India encountered with a bunch of Terrorists. Its simply disturbing knowing how well these Terrorist manipulate the system and perfectly execute their plans perfectly without getting Caught. 9/11 was the worst case everyone experienced, and everyone single person on earth was effected by it.
Obama is in a war where the odds are against him, I pray that he succeeds.
"I am asking you'll to Believe not just in my ability
to bring about real change in Washington...
I'm asking you to believe in Yours"- Barack Obama

Many thought that things will settle down soon, things have become better but the Job market is still rough everywhere. I have friends from all over the world, who told me that the organizations they work for are downsizing (A fancy word for “throwing you out of jobs”). Well anyways we all hope and pray for things to become better; being realistic everyone knows it will take time for people to getting jobs and getting work. But don’t Lose hope.
Now a lot of Job hunters are suffering with non availability of jobs or work , after sending out 100’s of resumes they get just a couple of interview calls and lose that opportunity. Wondering what went wrong, well today I am going to help these Guys out; a few things that you’ll need to keep in mind some of them you’ll might be knowing and some you’ll haven’t even heard of.
“My TO DO list for people finding Jobs ”
The Resume / Curriculum Vitae
Now most of you’ll are like “D’oh” we already knew that a Resume and a CV are the same thing with different names. Now stop, and continue reading. The Resume and CV are 2 different documents!!! even though both documents have the same structure; Information, Education, Experience, Skills etc.
The Key Difference between the 2 are:
A CV is a document which states in DETAIL the history of your Professional life.
A Resume’s is a short summary of your Professional Life.
The argument that which document is better has been going along for sometime, I’ll try to clear the misunderstanding here.
The reason Resume’s are preferred more is because no body has the time to read everything about you during an interview. Employers need just the highlights and nothing else because remember Time is money and the standard time for an interview will be from 10-30 mins.
On the other hand the reason Curriculum Vitae’s are preferred because Employers who need Professionals like Doctors, Engineers etc need to know everything about the candidate before calling a candidate for an interview.
As a Job Hunter always remember to analyze whether your employer will want to see just highlights or would want to know everything. Work on your Resume/CV.
Now remember your Resume/CV is your personal ad. It has to create an instant impression so that you get an interview call; so give quality time when creating it. If you can’t create one which will catch your attention than no one will even bother picking it up and giving you work. Throw it away! And start again.
Note: These days no one wants to pile up their desks with unwanted documents all employers prefer going through Resume/ Curriculum Vitae on the computer where it can be discarded easily. So try and send your Resume/ Curriculum Vitae via E-mail for a couple of interview calls.
A very obvious one but most important one! Spread the word out friends, family, well wishers etc all you are looking for is an interview and send them your CV/Resume.
After you do that DON’T sit on your ASS waiting for Bill Gates to give you a call. Buy a Newspaper and find for jobs!!!
What I mean is before you go for the Interview. Look up the company’s website to get some information on the company, its history, what they do etc Your interviewer will appreciate the interest and effort you put into it and don't forget to recheck your CV/Resume
Now hopefully, after sending out a couple hundred Resume/Curriculum Vitae
You will get a few calls for an interview don’t worry that’s all you want. (EXPECT a few leads. You’ll be lucky to get even one). The following are some Important Tips for the Interview.
Keep your jeans in the washing machine, you don’t need. An interview is a formal meeting. You don’t need to wear casual or semi-casual. Keep it decent and formal!
For Men a 2 piece with a tie is great, if it’s to hot than just the tie will do with button down shirt & polish your shoes!!
For Women a 2 piece looks very professional or even a skirt with a button down shirt looks amazing( well what can I say women you’ll have the dressing sense and I know whatever you’ll pick for an interview will look good just avoid to much make up )
I am not judging!!!! Just keep in mind to cut your nails, shave etc etc these little details go along way. You don’t wannna smell like you just came out of the gym, so a nice cologne would feel good for an interview.
If you don’t show that you are confident during an interview and that you are the right person for jobs and you will do well! No one will hire you. So the next time you sit in that chair in front of your employer, show some confidence when you speak. Don’t sit like you have just been punished. Keep eye contact and feel comfortable and speak with your heart. (But don’t be over confident; no one likes a smart ass)
Be A Good Person
What I mean is. Don’t back stab your previous/current employer during the interview. Speak positively. If asked why did you leave old jobs? Now you don’t want to say that you punched your supervisor because he called you a dumass! Sugar coat it!
Think like an Intellectual
When asked a question where you have to stop and think during an interview, don’t look at the floor. It doesn’t give a good vibe. Shut your eyes when thinking than open and answer or you can always look towards the ceiling.
Dont Show Me the MONEEYYY$$$
Important: When being interviewed the 1st time don’t bring up “The Money topic” yourself.
Know your worth; you should know how much of your time you will be giving an organization;
Who else would know? But always remember whatever amount you think you deserve make sure its
Negotiable; you don’t wanna lose an opportunity just cause you wanted 100 bucks more :S
As the interviewer says thank you for your time, we will give you a call if you are short listed or something like that don’t get up and walk away. Keep sitting and ask him the magic question continuing the interview.
What is the Probability that the job? Or if you can pull it off. Will I get this Job?
Many of you’ll might disagree with this Point, but let me tell you. That very moment can be the last time you might get to see that person for an interview! That’s your last chance to show that you really want the job and that you deserve it besides its a lot better than knowing that you wont get it rather than hoping for a call for a week! Don’t waste your time ask and let go.
If any of these tips has helped you. Don’t hold back do share it with me.

One Good Rule for Photography!!
To give depth to your picture; Shift your object from the center to either side, above or below just avoid the center. The next time you take a picture try this out and compare your pictures, you will realize the difference.
* Step Closer
second Good Rule for Photography
If possible always step closer to the object you want to capture, instead of Zooming in. The picture will be more clear.
This tip is For Digital Photography!!
Almost all camera's have an option of "Effects"; don't be afraid to use these options. Even a normal self portrait when clicked in Black & White or Sepia (Sepia is my favorite) gives a very different and Interesting view. It also works great when out doors; Beaches, forest, waterfalls etc etc So the next time you're out doors and with a camera be creative use your imagination and do not hold back if you do not have Hi-Fi Camera. Even a cell phone camera works great!
* Angles!!!!! Photography view
This is a very IMPORTANT tip! Ever wondered why professional photographers click GAZILLION Pictures of Models??! No. right? That's cause they even are not sure which picture will come out great. Even when you are clicking pictures of your loved ones click a couple of pictures of the same scenario or person with different angles.
A very Important Rule in Photography
Another Important tip and the most difficult one. Always wait for the right Moment! Ever tried capturing an image of a tear drop splashing on the ground. (I know its not easy!!!) But if you ever have managed to capture an image, Focusing on timing the object and subject you will be amazed as a photographer. Imagine a picture capturing a dog stretching in mid-air, jaws ready to grab a swinging Frisbee. Now wont that be a good picture? :)
* The FINAL TIP for Photography!!!
Always, Always remember " A Good Picture can tell a Story of a 1000 words "
Study the images you captured and you will only get better and better.
