A gentleman was once visiting a temple under construction. In the temple premises, he saw a sculptor making an idol of God. Suddenly he saw, just a few meters away, another identical idol was lying. Surprised he asked the sculptor, "do you need two statutes of the same idol?"
"No" said the sculptor. "We need only one, but the first one got damaged at the last stage." The gentleman examined the statue. No apparent damage was visible.
"Where the damage is?" Asked the gentleman.
There is a scratch on the nose of the idol. Where are you going to keep the idol? Asked the gentleman.
The sculptor replied that it will be installed on a pillar 20 feet high.
The gentleman asked- When the idol will be 20 feet away from the eyes of the beholder, who is going to know that there is scratch on the nose anyways? The sculptor looked at the gentleman, smiled and said, "The God knows it and I know it ".

An ingenious example of speech and politics occurred recently in the United Nations Assembly that made the world community smile.
A representative from India began: 'Before beginning my talk I want to tell you something about Rishi Kashyap of Kashmir, after whom Kashmir is named.
When he struck a rock and it brought forth water, he thought, 'What a good opportunity to have a bath.'He removed his clothes, put them aside on the rock and entered the water. When he got out and wanted to dress, his clothes had vanished. A Pakistani had stolen them.'
The Pakistani representative jumped up furiously and shouted, 'What are you talking about? The Pakistanis weren't there then.'
The Indian representative smiled and said, 'And now that we have made that clear, I will begin my speech.'
And they say Kashmir belongs to them………………………………………..

After four years of association with blogger, I'm shifting to new place. Shifting is never very easy. Leaving behind your old memories and legacies and getting adjusted to new ones is never very easy. But then life has to move on.
Hoping that you will come to meet me at my new address. http://dineshsoni.com.
