The Dog and the Donkey

The Dog and the Donkey

Suddenly a noise was heard. the dog was awakened by the noise, but he did not bother to know and went to sleep.Where as the donkey was amazed by the attitude of the dog. He spoke to the dog and inquired why he did not bark, knowing it might be thieves. To this the dog replied, it would be wisdom that one should mind their own business.

The donkey was outraged by the actions of the dog. he began to bray as loudly as possible. With this the donkey frightened off the thieves and made the master to come running. The master was so furious at being woken and he came out and started to beat the donkey.

The experienced dog now replied that he had warned the donkey. When you know how the master would react, it is better to think of oneself, first and foremost.

The Fox and Wolf in Court

The Fox and Wolf in Court

The wolf accused the fox of having cheated him. In turn the fox accused the wolf of having robbed him. Hence they took their dispute to court and it was left for the monkey judge to settle the issue. The issue was so full of differences and nobody could make head or tail of it.The argument went on for some time.

Eventually the monkey judge lost his patience and declared his judgement. He said that the wolf was guilty because he falsely accused the fox. He also said that the fox was also guilty because every one knew that fox was known by nature to be a thief. The monkey judge said that the best place for the both liars and thiefs was prison and proclaimed that both of them be sent to prison.

The Farmer and His Sons

The Farmer and His Sons

A farmer , knew his sons were lazy.While was in his death bed, he called them and said, as he was above to leave to the heavenly abode, he murmured and said that he got something for them. He said dig up the vineyard and share everything you find there.

After their father's death, they realised that they were running out of money. They realised that their father had meant a hidden treasure was there in the field. Hence after his death, they began to hoe and dig at furious space. Unfortunately they were not able to find any treasure, as there was none. But their hard labour did not go waste. The earth they hoed and dug produced an excellant bumper grapes crop.

She has now become a family member and always stands by us. Sharing her moments in our family

Through her eyes I see my late father. My father spent some moments with us and after two days he expired. I feel my father in her . She is always by my side

Her eyes are speak a lot....

Her comfort zone

Always very possive of every things in our house, including Hrishi's school bag

Hrishis sweet buddy / companion

She will not mind sharing things with Hrishi , including her personal space

3 Hearts goddess

Hi to day being a friend ship day or Valentine's day - I say cheers with 3 little hearts coaster. I had done the base patch some time back and did not know how to decorate it.

Browsed through the news paper and got a stencil of a heart. used it and painted 3 hearts . For me these hearts represent Durga - Lakshmi - Saraswathi. Hence pleased to share it with you. It can be converted into a wall hanger

How to properly place employees

A suggestion from a Human Resources Manager:


1. Put 400 bricks in a closed room.

2. Put your new hires in the room and close the door.

3. Leave them alone and come back after 6 hours.

4. Then analyze the situation:

a. If they are counting the bricks, put them in the Accounting Department.

b. If they are recounting them, put them in Auditing.

c. If they have messed up the whole place with the bricks, put them in Engineering.

d. If they are arranging the bricks in some strange order, put them in Planning.

e. If they are throwing the bricks at each other, put them in Operations.

f. If they are sleeping, put them in Security.

g. If they have broken the bricks into pieces, put them in Information Technology.

h. If they are sitting idle, put them in Human Resources.

i. If they say they have tried different combinations, they are looking for more, yet not a brick has been moved, put them in Sales.

j. If they have already left for the day, put them in Management.

k. If they are staring out of the window, put them in Strategic Planning.

l. If they are talking to each other, and not a single brick has been moved, congratulate them and put them in Top Management.

Finally, if they have surrounded themselves with bricks in such a way that they can neither be seen nor heard from, put them in Congress.

WIP Grey Sweater

Hello friends today I am show casing my work in progress. My friend Amiy from Delhi sent me wool and asked me to do a cardigan/sweater for her dear husband. It has been ages that I have not touched knitting a sweater. I selected the design from my book Harvey Guides and took measurements from the net. I was confused about the gauge part. I racked myself in getting the correct gauge . Hence went to my buddy Vidhya from Threads given life and went and met her grand mother. She just ripped whatever I did and she guided me how to begin. She also made sketches and showed me how to calculate the arm hole shaping and neck shaping. Under her blessings I have progressed so far.

I am doing the front and back continuously. hence I have placed markers in red to diffrenciate the left front, back and the right front.
Hence sharing this with
