Suffering from morbilliform rash

On Wednesday, when i woke up in the morning my face started to look little different than normal. I did not take it that much serious on that day and i went to office as usual. By evening, my face started to look very awkward which was very bumpy and swelly. By the end of the day, my body was itching and stinging. I tried to resist for around 1 hour, but after that i gave up. As a result of scratching, i started to feel like being inside a furnace of burning coal.

I could see rashes every where which is in the form of macule and papule. When i touch my skin and hover on it, i could feel like moving a sand paper. There's a saying in Hindi "Pehle mazaa, phir sazaa" (First enjoyment, later punishment). As it tells, even it happened in my case. Whenever i feel an itch, somehow i manage to be in control for around 1-2 hours, but after that i give up. During scratching it feels like i am in heaven, once done i will be thrown back to hell where i can feel brimstone's kept on my skin :-(

When i woke up on Thursday morning, my face looked worse than it was the previous day. So i skipped my office and went to an dermatologist and explained him about whatever things happened. He very calmly and politely listened to me. Later on, he just saw my face using some magnifying lens kind of thing and checked the skin of my hand. He just told me that i am suffering from Morbilliform rash. I was just wondering from where in the world this kind of thing come from :P He wrote some prescriptions that contained some pills, lotions, creams and a soap.

I just asked him a question, will it be cured pretty soon. He just replied me that come after 10 days, i will check it out and let you know. After listening to this, i could hear a broken noise inside me (Wondering; what the f***, it will take around 10 days to cure. What about my face, how can i go to office like this for so many days and so on...... ). As prescribed i took the pills, applied the creams and lotion, used only one soap which was told by him. Yesterday (Friday), when i woke up i could see some improvement on my face but still it was looking weird. I made up my mind and somehow i managed to go to office. When i was at my desk, i was feeling very embarrassing to sit coz i was not that much comfortable to show up my infected face to everyone. I soon went inside the lab and spent my entire day there itself. Happiest thing was, it was evening when i realized that i did not make any single scratch on my body. I was little happy and started to be very optimistic that it will be cured within a couple of days. But i was wrong, as the night was getting nearer and nearer, the sensation of itching kept on increasing. I started to loose my patience and finally at around 6 PM, i started to scratch very vigorously. I could see new bumps forming and again started to feel the pain of stinging in me. Till now i have seen no improvement. Hope i will see atleast some changes on tomorrow.

MS Dhoni can create a reverse history too !!!!!

After triumphing over West Indies, Indians headed to England to play a test series on the hosts. But everything went in vain. India being a best team is now suffering a lot of damage done by England. The wall of India i.e, Rahul Dravid is the only consistent performer who is saving the prestige of India being drastically hindered. I will tell you that it is not India tour of England, it should be "Dravid tour of England" :-)

The first match was little OK for India as they lost the opening match by 196 runs. After this, things began to worsen very much. In the second match they lost by 319 runs. In the 3rd match, England won by an innings and 242 runs. By this, England won the series and also took the #1 position pushing India to drop down the second position.

Indians had  to at-least make a draw in the fourth test if they want to remain in #2 position. But even this has become a doubt now. England scored a total of 491 runs loosing only 6 wickets (ENG - 491/6) and finally declared. Ian Bell contributed 235 runs and Kevin Pietersen contributed 175 runs to the team's score. India were all out scoring only 300 runs (IND - 300/10) and started to play their second innings as follow on. Highest scorer from India was Rahul Dravid who was unbeaten scoring 146 runs. As of now, India have scored 25 runs with no loss in the follow on innings (IND - 25/0).

Be wise than aggressive...

Character is one of the four characteristics of successful leaders. Sometimes, expressing it can take the courage of your convictions

"General Powell, I understand that your wife once suffered from depression, had to take medicine, and was even in a mental hospital. Do you want to comment on that?"

The 8,000-strong audience filling the Dallas Civic Auditorium was aghast. Everyone went quiet. They could hardly believe their ears. Colin Powell then considered a serious contender for the Presidential nomination was delivering a stirring, inspiring keynote address. His audience: a leading residential real estate company's top producers.
He faced an uphill battle with this crowd. They listened politely enough, but you'd be hard pressed to imagine Powell's impact having a lasting effect. After all, these were the best deal makers of a profession not known to be circumspect, but who instead appeared to take pride in their "transaction myopia," namely - find the deal, get the deal, do the deal, next deal.

During the Q&A period, a man asked the above question. Inappropriate is too kind a word for his off-the-wall question. Everyone wondered how Powell would react. Would he be politically correct and say that he was glad the man asked the question to make the point that mental illness should be treated with parity to medical illness? Would he ignore the man? Or would he bring back memories of Edmund Muskie throwing away his presidential hopes 25 years earlier when his wife was similarly attacked, causing the Maine senator to cry?

He looked firmly at the man and responded: "Excuse me sir, the person you love more than anyone is living in hell and you don't do whatever you can to get her out? Do you have a problem with that, sir?" One could hear a pin drop. Everyone felt Powell's values and principles fuse into deeply felt conviction. Talk about leadership! I said to myself, "I would buy a used country from that guy."

Learning from Colin Powell on that day; the incident is one of the best examples for how one can command respect through demonstrating. When you are wise and wrap aggression, it gives you the conviction to stand up to anyone. If in the heat of the moment, you're tempted to react quickly, Instead of doing that, be wise and do the following:

Step 1 Think of the first thing you want to say or do and don't do it (this is about retaliation)

Step 2 Think of the second thing you want to say or do and don't do it (this is about starting a debate)
Step 3 Think about the third thing you want to say or do and do it (this is about finding a solution).

"Your character is the anchor that grounds you, the compass that guides you, and the magnet that draws others to you. Being aware of your character gives you confidence and increases the probability of achieving your desired results."

Another poor performance given by Indians

It was expected that this test match would be dropped as the riots in England are getting stronger and stronger. But with proper security and passion both the team players have come forward to play the match. Today, India and England opened their third test match at Edgbaston, Birmingham, England. England won the toss and this time for a change they decided to field first.

Indian blaster, Virender Sehwag is in the team this time and lots of expectations was on him. Gautam Gambhir and Virender Sehwag opened the batting innings for India. First over, Gambhir played well and hit 2 fours. In the next over, Virender Sehwag opened his batting and got out in the very first delivery itself. All the expectations which was on him went in vain as he became duck out. A small partnership of 51 runs between Gambhir and Rahul Dravid helped India recover a bit. This also did not last as they lost more wickets with lesser runs. At one point of time, India were 111/7 and were looking really bad. Skipper MS Dhoni and Praveen Kumar teamed up together and decided to belt each and every bowler. This move, helped them a lot as they put up a partnership of 84 runs in very quick succession. After this fall, Indians could put up a total of 224 runs before loosing all 10 wickets (IND - 224/10 ). Skipper MS Dhoni was the highest scorer of the innings who scored 77 runs that included 10 fours and 3 sixes. Tim Bresnan and Stuart Broad took 4 wickets each.

England opened its first innings with the openers Andrew Strauss and Alastair Cook. They both opened brilliantly and played till the end of the day. At the end of the day, Andrew Strauss was unbeaten scoring 52 runs and Alastair Cook scoring a unbeaten 27 runs. England have scored 84 runs with no loss (ENG - 84/0). 

Australians were trapped in Ajantha Mendis Jinx

Yesterday, Srilanka and Australia played their second Twenty20 match at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, Kandy, Sri Lanka. The toss was won by the Srilankans and they chose to bat first.

Mahela Jayawardena and Tillakaratne Dilshan opened the batting innings for Srilanka. Tillakaratne Dilshan was unsuccessful again as he got out after scoring 4 runs only. Mahela Jayawardena batted well till 19.2 over and got out scoring 86 runs in 63 deliveries that included 12 fours and 1 six. Rest other players did not make it big, they just contributed few runs here and there. Finally Srilanka managed to put up a total score of 157 runs on board in 20 overs loosing 9 wickets (SL - 157/9, 20 over). Brett Lee and John Hastings took 3 wickets each.

Australia needed 158 runs to win the match and start the innings with the openers Shane Watson and David Warner. Both of the started pretty well and the start given by Shane Watson was outstanding. For the first 6 overs, Shane Watson belted the bowlers hitting the ball in all the corners of the ground. He scored 57 runs in just 24 deliveries that included 6 fours and 5 sixes. He got out in Ajantha Mendis delivery by giving a straight catch to Thisara Perera. After the fall of Shane Watson, Australians lost 3 more wickets in just 3 runs. After this, Australian skipper Cameron White took the charge along with Steven Smith and were back on track. Srilankans started to struggle a lot in getting a wicket. Finally Ajantha Mendis struck back with his 4th wicket and broke the partnership. After this, they were back on track and managed to keep pressure on the Australians till the end of the innings. Australia could put up a total of 149 runs only with the loss of 9 wickets in 20 overs (AUS - 149/9, 20 over). Ajantha Mendis was the highest wicket taker in the match. He also created the world record in T20 history by taking 6 wickets and the first Srilankan to get 5 wickets in a match.

Srilanka won the match by 8 runs. Man of the match was Ajantha Mendis for taking 6 wickets and creating a new T20 world record.

Soar Beyond your Fears!!!

Once there was a king who received a gift of two magnificent falcons from Arabia. They were peregrine falcons, the most beautiful birds he had ever seen. He gave the precious birds to his head falconer to be trained.
Months passed and one day the head falconer informed the king that though one of the falcons was flying majestically, soaring high in the sky, the other bird had not moved from its branch since the day it had arrived.
The king summoned healers and sorcerers from all the land to tend to the falcon, but no one could make the bird fly. He presented the task to the member of his court, but the next day, the king saw through the palace window that the bird had still not moved from its perch. Having tried everything else, the king thought to himself, "May be I need someone more familiar with the countryside to understand the nature of this problem." So he cried out to his court, "Go and get a farmer."
In the morning, the king was thrilled to see the falcon soaring high above the palace gardens. He said to his court, "Bring me the doer of this miracle."
The court quickly located the farmer, who came and stood before the king. The king asked him, "How did you make the falcon fly?"
With his head bowed, the farmer said to the king, " It was very easy, your highness. I simply cut the branch where the bird was sitting."
We are all made to fly -- to realize our incredible potential as human beings. But instead of doing that, we sit on our branches, clinging to the things that are familiar to us. The possibilities are endless, but for most of us, they remain undiscovered. We conform to the familiar, the comfortable, the mundane. So for the most part, our lives are mediocre instead of exciting, thrilling and fulfilling.

So let us learn to destroy the branch of fear we cling to and free ourselves to the glory of flight.

From the Book "Why walk when you can fly"


THEN GO AHEAD & FLY.........
Have a Fabulous day and Fantastic weekend :)

OMG!!! This is hilarious...... Cannibals still exist on this earth.......

Hello friends, few weeks back i received a mail with a subject written as "Biriyani lunch in Thailand". Before checking the mail, in my mind it was like "it could be food something made up of snakes, lizards, worms, frogs or combination of all these things".

But i was wrong, this time it was a dead man. Every picture when i went through, it looked very awkward and embarrassing to me. I was feeling like vomiting right away after looking at few snaps. Here are the pictures which i received in the mail. I have never seen such thing before....... yuk...... I wish that i don't even want to see these people in my life......
