Bhagam Bhag – First Look

Baabul – First Look

Salaam-E-Ishq Trailer

The director of Kal Ho Na Ho is ready with his next production and this one looks like a winner from the very beginning. Check out the trailers below.

Both, says the Oxford BBC Guide to Pronunciation, a secret guide that has helped generations of BBC newsreaders pronounce difficult words and odd-sounding names, has been made public for the first time in the UK and US.

The training manual offers advice on words such as “schedule”, “controversy” and “kilo-metre”, as well as troublesome modern names including “Al-Qaeda” and “JK Rowling”. It’s an updated version of the tome used by the BBC since the days when radio presenters wore dinner jackets.

It includes the correct way to pronounce foreign names, such as “Sven-Goran Eriksson”, the former England manager, (sven yoer-an ay-rik-son) as well as “Faria Alam”, his former lover, (fuh-ree-uh uh-lam). Rowling, the Harry Potter author, is pronounced as in “rowing” a boat and not as in having a “row” with those who say differently.

It buries the hatchet about long-lived arguments — such as whether to say “shed-yool” or “sked-yool” for “schedule”. Shed-yool is a more English way of pronouncing it, says the guide, though neither is wrong. And is it kil-uh-mee-tuhr or kil-om-uh-tuhr? The first way is the more traditional, says the guide, but the second version is also acceptable.

More than 16,000 words, phrases and difficult-sounding names and places are included in the £14.99 (approx. Rs 1,300) book. The BBC has a Pronunciation Unit with a database of 200,000 words, names and phrases that may leave some newsreaders and presenters tongue-tied.

SOME REALITIES OF LIFE

Check out Some Realites of Life.

“U love someone
U marry someone else.
The one u marry becomes ur wife or husband.
And the one u loved becomes the password of ur mail id”

—————

There’s only one perfect child in the world & every mother has it.
There’s only one perfect wife in the world & every neighbour has it.

—————

If someone says u r ugly, its ok, if someone says u r stupid, its ok,
If someone says u r genius slap him as tight as you can n say there is a
limit of kidding n u r now crossing the limit.

—————

Three dreams of a man:
To be as handsome as his mother thinks.
To be as rich as his child believes.
To have as many women as his wife suspects…

—————

Husband & wife are like liver and kidney. Husband is liver & wife kidney.
If liver fails, kidney fails. If kidney fails, liver manages with other
kidney.

—————

Generation Next Motto: Na hum shaadi karenge, na apne bachchon ko karne
denge.

—————

What’s the diff between Dava &d Daru?
Dava is like girlfriend, that comes with expiry date and
Daru is like wife, Jitni purani hogi utna sir chad ke bolegi.

—————

Wife ko Begum kyon kehte hain?
Kyonki shaadi ke baad saare gum to husband ke hisse mein aate hain or wife
Be-Gum ho jaat hai.

A Cup Of Coffee

There are times when we think we have no time for some important things in life. That is because we are not able to organize our life and our priorities. Hope this article will do that for us. Enjoy reading it.

A professor stood before his Philosophy class and had some items in front of him.

When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls.

He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar.

He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls.

He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar.

Of course, the sand filled up everything else.

He asked once more if the jar was full.

The students responded with an unanimous “yes.”

The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space
between the sand.

The students laughed.

“Now,” said the professor, as the laughter subsided, “I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life.

“The golf balls are the important things – your God, family, your children, your health, your friends, and your favorite passions – things that if
everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.

“The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, and your car.

“The sand is everything else–the small stuff.

“If you put the sand into the jar first,” he continued, “there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls.

“The same goes for life. “If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you.

“Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.

Play with your children.

“Take time to get medical checkups.

“Take your partner out to dinner.

“There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal.

“Take care of the golf balls first, the things that really matter.

“Set your priorities.

“The rest is just sand.”

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented.

The professor smiled. “I’m glad you asked.

“It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem,there’s always room for a cup of coffee with a friend.”

WISDOM

One day the great philosopher came upon an acquaintance who ran up to him
excitedly and said, “Socrates, do you know what I just heard about one of
your students?”

Wait a moment,” Socrates replied. “Before you tell me I’d like you to pass a
little test.It’s called the Triple Filter Test.”

“Triple filter?”

“That’s right,” Socrates continued. “Before you talk to me about my student
let’s take a m! moment to filter what you’re going to say. The first filter
is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me
is true?”

“No,” the man said, “actually I just heard about it and…”

“All right,” said Socrates. “So you don’t really know if it’s true or not.
Now let’s try the second filter, the filter of Goodness. Is what you are
about to tell me about my student something good?”

“No, on the contrary…”

“So,”! Socrates continued, “you want to tell me something bad about him,
even though you’re not certain it’s true?”

The man shrugged, a little embarrassed.

Socrates continued. “You may still pass the test though,because there is a
third filter – the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about
my student going to be useful to me?”

“No, not really…”

“Well,” concluded Socrates, “if what you want to tell me is neither True nor
Good nor even Useful,! why tell it to me at all?”

The man was defeated and ashamed.

This is the reason Socrates was a great philosopher and held in such high
esteem

One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry.

He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, “How much do I owe you?”

“You don’t owe me anything,” she replied “Mother has taught us never to accept payment for a kindness.” He said… “Then I thank you from my heart.”

As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt; stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.

Years later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes.

Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room. Dressed in his doctor’s gown he we nt in to see her. He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day he gave special attention to the case.

After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room. She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally, she looked, and something caught; her attention on the side as She read these words…..

“Paid in full with one glass of milk.” (Signed) Dr. Howard Kelly.

Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed: “Thank You, GOD, that Your love has spread abroad through human hearts and hands.”
