Parents love....

So many trail mails cross our mailboxes...
This one touched a cord in my heart....


A beautiful poem written by a Father to save his Daughter !!!
Do read it once........ ...I am sure u also won't be left untouched by the words and the feelings that they depict.


The last stanza, after reading from the beginning, suddenly slows down the heart-beats



A sad Dad's poem... 
This is a beautiful poem. There is an appeal from a Zimbabwean couple at the bottom of message, not asking for anything more than that you hand the poem on.......... .. 

The husband wrote the poem. 


Just for this morning, I am going to smile when I see your face and laugh
 when I feel like crying. 

Just for this morning, I will let you
 choose what you want to wear, and smile and say how perfect it is. 

Just for this morning, I am going to step
 over the laundry and pick you up and take you to the park to play. 

Just for this morning, I will leave the dishes in the sink, and let you teach me how to put
 that puzzle of yours together. 

Just for this afternoon, I will unplug the telephone and keep the computer off, and sit with
 you in the backyard and blow bubbles. 

Just for this afternoon, I will not yell once, not even a tiny grumble when you scream and whine for the ice cream truck, and I will buy you one
 if he comes by. 

Just for this afternoon, I won't worry about what you are going to be when you grow up, or second guess every decision I have made where you are concerned.

Just for this afternoon, I will let you help me bake cookies, and I won't stand over you trying to fix them.

Just for this afternoon, I will take us to McDonald's and buy us both a Happy Meal so you can have both toys.

Just for this evening, I will hold you in
 my arms and tell you a story about how you were born and how much I love you. 

Just for this evening, I will let you 
 splash in the tub and not get angry.


Just for this evening, I will let you stay up late while we sit on the porch and count all the stars.

Just for this evening, I will snuggle beside you for hours, and miss my favourite TV shows. 

Just for this evening when I run my finger through your hair as you pray, I will simply be grateful that God has given me the greatest gift ever given. 

I will think about the mothers and fathers who are searching for their missing children, the mothers and fathers who are visiting their children's graves instead of their bedrooms. The mothers and fathers who are in hospital rooms
 watching their children suffer senselessly and screaming
 inside that little body 

And when I kiss you goodnight I will hold
 you a little tighter, a little longer. It is then, that I will thank God for you, and ask him for nothing, except one more day......... ..... 

Hi! I am a 29-year-old father. My wife and I have had a wonderful life together. God blessed us with a child too. Our daughter's name is Rachel and she is 10 months old. Not long ago did the doctors detect brain cancer in her little body. 

There is only one way to save her and that is an operation. Sadly we don't have the money for the operation. AOL and Zdnet (in Zimbabwe ) have agreed to help us. 

The only way they can help is this: If you send this email to other people<>AOL will track this email and count how many people get it. Every person that opens this email and sends it to at least 3 people will give us 32c. (in Zimbabwe dollars) Please help us.

It hardly takes a minute for you to forward this to your friends, Please do it.

God Bless You!!

Behind the scene security!!

When i use the ASUS P 527 for receiving and sending my mails i hardly think of the support technology that runs these services?
I was wondering whats behind the Blackberry and the mobile integration with Internet?
Whoa there is a whole lot more than what meets the eye!!
Big telecoms and Internet service providers(Tata Indicom,Sify,Siemens) need back end technology support and need a professional to manage the complex algorithms.
My quest for behind the scene operators took me into the domain of Exchange management  and Exchange Tools,alien words to us layman's.
Its mind boggling to note the number of back end technology companies servicing a big Telecoms Brand?
So the level of service which we get as an end consumer is a byproduct of all these service provider as well as the mother brands efforts!
As big telecoms and Internet providers companies deal with millions of customer and there accounts.It contains confidential and critical information about the client and her uses pattern.Its the responsibility of the service provider to provide best Active directory services.So as the consumer data is secure. 
So the next time you send or receive a sms or a mail on your handheld device think of how many companies work in tandem to make it possible.How complicated and complex a sms or secured mail could be??
Actually thanks to these behind the scene secured service providers for not letting us worry about the terms which we layman say JARGON'S!!

India and its neighbours??

Today the external affairs minister affirmed that all relevant info has been shared with Pakistan.Going a step further India is going to share the same info with all important countries.
Never ever so clinching evidence was put forward by India.It remains to be seen what  response comes from the countries of the world.
I reiterate the danger of the troubled neighbourhood we have inherited.

Sri lanka in war with LTTE?
Pakistan facing daily blasts from suicide bombers?
Bangladeshi militants blamed for Assam blast?
Military Junta ruling and suppressing democracy in Myanmar?
Indian army fighting the terrorists in Kashmir? 

One  of the less talked about danger is the Naxal terrorism infecting almost half of India??
With the Maoists ruling Nepal its only going to increase??
Can India remain peaceful amidst all these troubled neighbours??

New age advertising..

Adds have been one of the most creative vent for many artists,the pedestal is pushed each passing year.The Lions at Cannes and the swirl of add campaigns launched just to impress the critic are things of today.
One of the most memorable add in Indian Diaspora is the Fevicol one.
Worldwide Absolute Vodka has done some stunning work which makes it an iconic product.
The place at Vasai i call my home is seeing a lot of construction and development.The Sunday home hunters land from Mumbai to search there dream home.
One of the builders did an innovative  add by putting a huge helium balloon at its construction site dis pended 100 ft in air.
People can trace the  balloon from as far as the station.Bingo!!!
Most of the traffic reaches the spot to check it out...
The kids love to hang around the big advertising balloons spread around the construction and sales office.The balloons will innovative show the constructed and well designed apartment's!!
Very large sized balloons were used to advertise as well as work as toys on which the kids have gala time.
So while the parents check out the rate and size of the dream apartments the kids have a blast.I really loved the idea ...
