Every girl child true friend is Barbie. No girls childhood will be complete without having her own Barbie. Barbie stand for beauty and elegant.
Yestersay was Barbie 50 b'th day...She may have turned 50,but will look like the sweet little girl for ages to come till we grow old. She will remain the never ageing sweet little. I thought why not continue the celebration today too. So here is a small history how Barbie came into being...
History of Barbie
The Barbie doll was created by Ruth Handler for the Mattel company in 1959. Handler and her husband, Elliot, founded the company with partner Harold "Matt" Matson in 1942. Ruth, inspired by dolls she'd seen on a trip to Europe, and from watching her own daughter, Barbara, created an adult doll for children. Twelve inches high and plastic, "Barbie" and her fashionable and separately-sold clothing were such a hit that Mattel became a publicly owned company in 1960. Over the years new versions of the toy mirrored fashion trends, and Barbie was the center of a universe that included a benign boyfriend (Ken), occasional siblings (Skipper, Todd, Stacie, et al), pets (too many to name, including dogs, horses, cats and a parrot), cars, boats, planes and houses. Barbie versions included scientists, disco dancers, fashion models, astronauts, rock stars and lifeguards. By the 1980s the doll's force as a collectible was such that Mattel began making versions of Barbie specifically for the collectors' market. Critics of the doll say it presents an unrealistic body image for girls. Fans say Barbie encourages young girls -- and boys -- by giving them aspirations to be scientists, disco dancers, fashion models, astronauts, rock stars or lifeguards. Despite the ongoing debate over Barbie's impact on American culture, the doll remains one of the best-selling and best-known dolls on the market.The Ken doll is named after Ruth and Elliot Handlers other child, their son.

Yesterday i went to see a very beautiful film called High School Musical 3: Senior Year...The story was about a boy named Troy who want to pursue his career on Basket ball and Drama...
The film teaches you to follow your heart to achieve your goal...This movie is the last of it's trilogy...The movie is musical and had great song and dance sequence. I have no idea, from where a huge groups came from, they had no idea what is a Musical is, whenever a song starts they used to shout Booo in the theater. This made me angry and really repented of seeing this movie in the theater....They really destroyed my movie watching experience.
Now i understand why there is no Musical movies in Indian films. Cos people are soo deaf to enjoy it.. It is like those lyrics are falling in a deaf ear..

The computer age reached a milestone when the Altair 8800 — a precursor to the PC — became available on this date in 1974, allowing anyone to build a computer at home. The microcomputer kit was originally intended to be sold to hobbyists, but it was an instant hit, and in 1990 the computer went on display at the Smithsonian Institution's Museum of History and Technology in Washington, DC. The microcomputer was designed by Ed Roberts, who had been producing calculator kits for hobbyists. Altair BASIC, the interpreter for the programming language that ran the 8800 was the brainchild and first product of Bill Gates' and Paul Allen's new company, Micro-Soft.
Quote: "Buying the right computer and getting it to work properly is no more complicated than building a nuclear reactor from wristwatch parts in a darkened room using only your teeth." — Dave Barry

What happen when there is no kids in a kid program? The govt have targeted the most famous program which has Kids as center character. Can you imagine without Anandhi in Balika Vadhu or without lill cute baby Krishna in Jai Shree Krishna.
Now the Indian govt is going to pull all the show like Balika, Booggi woghi and rest of the programs. It is good that govt is taking a step in Child labor. But i feel they should also concentrate in the kids who work as servants or in some factory. It seems Govt says that some channel are not following the rules that a kid can only work for 4 hrs and some channel makes them to work more than 10 hrs.
Will the channel change their kid star's working time? I feel that these program should have a limited time like they have in the West. One program have only 10 to 20 episode and then let the next season starts. So the kids can act in their holidays and they won't have to miss their studies...There is one problem when a kids are star, they tend to loose their innocence....I guess the channel should make it a point that their innocence are preserved...
What say....Have any answers? Reply is must!

Thanks to Asi Tukaram Omble, at least one terrorist was captured alive
The two terrorists were armed with kalashnikov assault rifles and hand grenades; he carried just a walkie-talkie. there was no way assistant sub-inspector (asi) tukaram omble, 48, could have survived the encounter. But before dying, he ensured that at least one of the 26/11 a terrorist was caught alive.
Omble was asked by his senior to take up position on marine drive on Wednesday night, after the news of firings at Leopold café, oberoi and taj hotels came in. around 12.45 am, he got an alert on his walkie-talkie that two terrorists had hijacked a skoda car and were heading for girgaum chowpatty. Just minutes later, the skoda whizzed past him.
Omble jumped on to his two-wheeler and chased the car. A team from db marg police station was setting up a naka bandi at the chowpatty signal. As the car approached the signal, the terrorists opened fire on the cops, but were forced to reduce speed because of the barricades.
Omble overtook the skoda and stopped in front of it, forcing the driver of the car to swerve right and hit the divider. With the terrorists momentarily distracted, omble sprang toward one of them, amir kasab, and gripped the barrel of the ak47 rifle with both hands. With the barrel pointing towards omble, amir pulled the trigger. A spray of bullets entered his stomach and intestine. Omble collapsed, but held on to the gun till he breathed his last, stopping amir from shooting anyone else.
The other cops, who by that time had killed the other terrorist, ismail, pounced on amir and captured him. The investigation agencies were reported to have gathered a lot of information from the sole terrorist captured.
Omble is survived by his wife and four daughters. He is a real hero. Let's salute him.

Quote: “By laughing at me, the audience really laughs at themselves, and realizing they have done this gives them sort of a spiritual second wind for going back into the battles of life.” Emmett Kelly
The media should allow the countries to talk to each other. The media's duty to show the proof not interrogate Pak as some kind of criminals and they should start concentrating in their work alone and leave the rest for our Indian politician....
What say...Comment away.....

The bridge between us was becoming thin when thier celebrity were coming here and ours entertaining them. But this all has changed post the blast. Now the bridge is broken. Now there will be only separation and hatred among us. Who is responsible ?
The people of Pak or the politician behind it.
I feel we are all same but the venom which is been inserted by Pak politician is not. I saw one contestant from Pak in Sa Re Ga Ma Pa in Zee Tv asked the judge not to have elimination. He did not know that he won't be able to perform after the blast.
Even there was a blast in blast in Peshawar yesterday....Who is responsible for the blast? Will Pak govt answer it. May be we have the same enemy, it is right time for all the country to become One then only we will be able to fight the Terrorism once for the last...

Section 49-O of the Constitution -
Did you know that there is a system in our constitution, as per the 1969 act, in section "49-O" that a person can go to the polling booth, confirm his identity, get his finger marked and convey the presiding election officer that he doesn't want to vote anyone!
Yes such a feature is available, but obviously these seemingly notorious leaders have never disclosed it. This is called "49-O".
Why should you go and say "I VOTE NOBODY"... because, in a ward, if a candidate wins, say by 123 votes, and that particular ward has received "49-O" votes more than 123, then that · polling will be cancelled and
· Will have to be re-polled.
· Not only that, but the candidature of the contestants will be removed and they cannot contest the re-polling, since people had already expressed their decision on them.
This would bring fear into parties and hence look for genuine candidates for their parties for election. This would change the way, of our whole political system... it is seemingly surprising why the election commission has not revealed such a feature to the public....
Please spread this news to as many as you know...
Seems to be a wonderful weapon against corrupt parties in India ...
show your power, expressing your desire not to vote for anybody,
is even more powerful than voting... so don't miss your chance.
So either vote, or vote not to vote (vote 49-O) and pass this info on...
"Please forward this mail to as many as possible, so that we, the people of India , can really use this power to save our nation".
Use your vote right for a better INDIA .

Just a thought, when i saw our self pledging against terrorism and signing the petition to Prime Minister. Seeing whole Mumbai with candles and their silent protest, reminded me about our the war for Independence.
In those days people use to go from one door to another to ask people to join their protest in order to make the British leave our country. Even some people staged a street drama to awake spirit in people. I see the same thing happening here as we are fighting with our own politician and also terrorist who came and fired everywhere like they are trying to take over our country like the British....
Just imagine if Bhagat Singh and Mahatma Gandhiji was in Net age like us, they will also be emailing people like we are doin. May be the people in that time would have signed the Petition like us to Jawaharlal Nehru. Or even go for silent protest caring a candle.
Friends, Fighting terrorism is no less than fighting for Independence. Again we are trying to make the Evil leave our country...May be the people like us will be expressing their anger through their blogs/post. I hope we will find more Bhagat Singh and Mahatma Gandhiji, who will succeed in driving the Terrorist from our country soon. Hope we will get freedom from Terror. So, i wish everyone a Happy Independence in Advance....
I hope here onwards everyone will think like an Indian, forget caste and community or state. We are One. Then only we can fight this Terror....
Never Forget Nor Forgive !!!
Inqulab Zindabad, Vande Matharam, Jai Hind....

Have you ever heard of Reel movie saving a real person, it really happened to Hollywood actor David Rudder....Read his experiance with Death !
David Rudder said his experience in movies helped him survive the terrorist attack in Mumbai.
In a TV interview Sunday from a Mumbai hospital, the actor recalled how his reel-life experience helped him survive the real-life drama.
``My arm ... just exploded into red. It was like a scarecrow arm inside of a second... While I was taking that in, I got a bullet in my leg,'' he said.
The actor said he dove to the floor of the Oberoi hotel restaurant as a third bullet hit him in the lower back and a fourth one grazed his head.
``I just laid there in utter shock for quite a long time,'' he said.
``My intention, once the bullets started flying, was to pretend - as I've learned in so many Second World War movies - that I was dead and just to stay as still as could,'' he said.
When the gunman left the area, he said, he crawled out of the kitchen and fled the building to be taken to hospital in a taxi. The actor, who is from Montreal, said he will undergo surgery Tuesday to remove a bullet in his stomach.
Rudder said his two friends who were dining with him were killed in the attacks.
Recalling how it all began, Rudder said when he and his friends first heard gunfire, he got up to see what was going on. But he was told by the staff that it could be some small gang warfare and he should go back to his table.
``That was my fatal error. I did go back to my table and I said: 'Apparently, it's some kind of gangster activity and it's no big deal', '' he said.
``Five minutes later we were ... just ripped to shreds by bullets,'' the actor recalled.
He said he never saw his attackers.
The actor said he was in India on a spiritual pilgrimage with a Virginia-based meditation group called Synchronicity Foundation which lost a member and his daughter.
