garden, but it was very hard work. His only son, who would have helped
was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and mentioned his
I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won't be able to plant
potato garden this year. I hate to miss doing the garden because your
mother always loved planting time. I'm just getting too old to be
up a garden plot. If you were here, all my troubles would be over.
I know you would dig the plot for me, if you weren't in prison.
Shortly, the old man received this telegram: "For Heaven's sake, Dad,
dig up the garden!! That's where I buried the GUNS!!"
At 4 a.m. the next morning, a dozen FBI agents and local police
showed up and dug up the entire garden without finding any guns.
Confused, the old man wrote another note to his son telling him what
happened, and asked him what to do next.
His son's reply was: "Go ahead and
plant your potatoes, Dad. It's the best I could do for you from here."

Chinese walks into a bar in America late one night and he saw Steven spielberg. As he was a great fan of his movies, he rushes over to him, and asks for his autograph. Instead, Spielberg gives him a slap and says, "You Chinese people bombed our Pearl Harbor, get outta here."The astonished Chinese man replied, "It was not the Chinese who bombed your Pearl Harbor, it was the Japanese". "Chinese, Japanese, Taiwanese, you're all the same, " replied Spielberg. In return, the Chinese gives Spielberg a slap and says "You sank the Titanic, my forefathers were on that ship." Shocked, Spielberg replies, "It was the iceberg that sank the ship, not me." The Chinese replies, "Iceberg, Spielberg, Carlsberg, you're all the same." :D

Here is the reason. Why
In the movie of Rajanikanth,
1) Rajanikanth has a Brain Tumor which, according to the doctors can't be cured and his death is imminent. In one of the fights, Rajanikanth is shot in the head. To everybody's surprise, the bullet passes through his ears taking away the tumor along with it and he is cured! Long Live Rajanikanth!
2) In another movie, Rajanikanth is confronted with 3 gangsters.
Rajanikanth has a gun but unfortunately only one bullet and a knife.
Guess, what he does?
He throws the knife at the middle gangster? & shoots the bullet towards the knife. The knife cuts the bullet into 2 pieces, which kills both the gangsters on each side of the middle gangster & the knife kills the middle one.
3) Rajanikanth is chased by a gangster. Rajanikanth has a revolver but no bullets in it. Guess, what he does. Nah? not even in your remotest imaginations.
He waits for the gangster to shoot. As soon as the gangster shoots, Rajanikanth opens the bullet compartment of his revolver and catches the bullet. Then, he closes the bullet compartment and fires his gun.
Bang... the gangster dies...
This was too much for our
The 'climax' finally arrives.
Rajanikanth gets to know that the villain is on the other side of a very high wall. So high that Rajanikanth can't jump even if he tries like one of those superman techniques that our heroes normally use. Rajanikanth has to desperately kill the villain because it's the climax.
Rajanikanth suddenly pulls two guns from his pockets. He throws one gun in the air and when the gun has reached above the height of the wall, he uses the second gun and shoots at the trigger of the first gun in air. The first gun fires off and the villain is dead.

Mehta, who was lodged in Thane Central Jail, developed chest pain at around 11 pm on Sunday, and was shifted to the civil hospital where he breathed his last at 12.40 am, police sources said.
He was arrested by the CBI on November 9 with his brothers, Ashwin and Sudhir, in the case of alleged misappropriation of Rs 250 crore from 27 lakh 'missing' shares of 90 blue chip companies. On December 21, a special court had rejected the bail plea of Harshad and his brothers and remanded them to judicial custody till January 4.
Mehta gained notoriety - at least from the point of view of the common man - when he was charged with market manipulation in 1992-93. The infamous securities scam made Mehta a household name even for those who had absolutely no inkling about the ways of the stock market.
The scandal may have cost him his place as arguably the biggest and most influential stock broker in the modern stock market, but to thousands interested in making a career in stock markets Mehta was god.
Known for his analytical mind, Mehta could smell an opportunity to make a killing. When this correspondent met him in 1996, he was already a spent force. But, his popularity among the youth in Mumbai was stunning. You just had to ask a youngster in Mumbai's Fort area, what he wants to be when he grows up. "Harshad Mehta" - would be an instantaneous reply. And, this was a good four years after the scam.
Mehta, according to old timers in the stock trade in Mumbai, learnt his ropes when he was hired a junior official by the Bombay Stock Exchange management. What followed is now a part of stock market folklore.
Harshad's involvement in the securities scam of 1992 pertained to his usage of bank funds for pushing up his favourite stocks - artificially. ACC, for example, had hit the magic figure of Rs 10,000 then. The stock market, in general, which never saw such huge volumes of transaction was euphoric. He was labeled as the man with the Midas touch.
Mehta's flashy lifestyle -- whether it was his luxury cars from the Toyota stable or his sea-facing penthouse at Mumbai's Worli -- made him one of the most identifiable man in the early '90s. Around that time, he also took on and won a pitched battle against Manu Manek -- one of the biggest broker-***-operator in the Indian stock market history.
All this changed when The Times of India carried series of articles about his source of funds and how he manipulated the markets. There was panic selling and close to Rs 5,000 crore worth of market capitalization was eroded. For Harshad, his empire collapsed. His subsequent arrest by the CBI finally broke his hold on the markets.
Harshad tried to buy immunity and claimed that he had handed over Rs 1 crore in cash to the then Indian prime minister P V Narasimha Rao. Rao denied any role in this affair. The government subsequently ordered a joint parliamentary committee probe in this Harshad affair, and also set up a special court to try Harshad and his cronies.
Even as the trial was going on, Harshad got involved in yet another manipulation game in 1997. This time, he, according to a Securities and Exchange Board of India chargesheet, was involved in rigging up the prices of three stocks - BPL, Videocon International and Sterlite Industries. While Sebi and the other government agencies probing the financial market scams have been certain about his involvement in these manipulative exercises, Mehta was never really punished for his crimes. His lifestyle - though spartan in comparison to the flashy days - was comfortable. Every time, there was a mild flutter in the markets - and this continued till the late '90s - the market grapevine would say "Harshad is back!"
Bombay Bull Ketan Parekh -- architect of the famous rally of 2000 and now implicated for manipulating the markets -- was among Harshad's close associates.
Only towards the last few months of his life, the court's decision to freeze his financial assets may have landed him in some difficulties.
With Harshad's death, the law enforcing agencies may face a problem in pursuing the securities scam case. The loss in market capitalization could not have been ever recoverable from Mehta, but now even a modest recovery from Harshad's personal financial assets could be a problem. True, the courts can always punish Harshad's brother Ashwin Mehta, but his culpability in the securities scam was possibly in a very limited way.
Harshad and his two brothers are charged with various offences under IPC such as 120-b IPC (conspiracy), 467 (forgery of valuable security), 468 (forgery for the purpose of cheating) and 471 (using as genuine forged documents).
In another case, Harshad Mehta and three others were acquitted on April 16 in a case of alleged misappropriation of Rs 5.88 lakh from the funds of Bank of America in its inter-bank call money transactions ostensibly with SBI Mutual Fund.
In special courts here and Supreme Court in New Delhi, Harshad was defended by a team of lawyers led by Mahesh Jethmalani. (TIMES NEWS NETWORK)
and asked him for
some money. The man ignored him. But being a professional, the beggar kept
on pestering him. The man became irritated when he realized that the beggar
would not leave him alone unless he parts with some money.
Suddenly an idea struck him. He told the beggar, "I do not have money, But if you tell me
what you want to do with the money, I will certainly help you." "I would
have bought a cup of tea", replied the beggar. The man said, "Sorry man. I
can offer you a cigarette instead of tea".
He then took a pack of cigarettes from his pocket and offered one to the beggar. The beggar told, "I don't
smoke as it is injurious to health." The man smiled and took a bottle of
whisky from his pocket and told the beggar, "Here, take this bottle and
enjoy the stuff. It i! s really good". The beggar refused by saying,
"Alcohol muddles the brain and damages the liver". The man smiled again. He
told the beggar, "I am going to the race course. Come with me and I will
arrange for some tickets and we will place bets. If we win, you take the
whole amount and leave me alone". As before, the beggar politely refused
the latest offer by saying, "Sorry sir, I can't come with you as betting on
horses is a bad habit."
Suddenly the man felt relieved !! and asked the
beggar to come to his home with him. Finally, the beggar's face lit up in
anticipation of receiving at least something from the man. But he still had
his doubts and asked the man, "Why do you want me to go to your house with
The man replied...with smile
or say laughed hahahahhaahahaaah
"My wife always wanted to see how a man with no Bad habits looks like".
