Not word, Word document!

Writing 4 Kids

Gopal was in 12th grade
And his holidays approached
He wanted to enjoy it
But his father asked him to help a bit.

As the associate in his office was on leave
And a copy of report had to be finished
He asked Gopal to give him a hand
When with his friends he had joined hands.

Gopal was on his way to go out
When his father asked him to help him out
Gopal said, “Don’t worry, I will give you my word.”
His father replied, “All I need is the Word document.”!

An idea to uphold!

Writing 4 Kids
Gopal used to spend a lot
With the pocket money he got
Although his father not to spend thought
Since to earn money it takes a lot.

Gopal loved to got to Mall
With his friends to have a ball
He enjoyed their company
And would spend each penny.

One day his father asked Gopal
“Ever thought of doubling the money I gave?”
An idea splashed Gopal like a tidal wave
“Sure” he replied and folded the note into two folds!

The Winning Goal!

Writing 4 Kids
Gopal was the only child for his parents
They wanted from others he to stand front
So they put him in a good school
But to study Gopal didn’t feel.

He played a lot of football
And he was good among them all
When his parents saw the report card
To others to show they were afraid.

But in school for state team selection
The coach recognized this great sensation
When other proud parents made their child’s card presentation
They were shocked to hear Gopal’s name in T.V. station.

Making stand out



Gopal’s mother went to men’s clothing store
As her son’s school day function was coming near
She used to haggle a lot before purchase
And her wrath shopkeeper had to face.

She wanted to buy a tie,
So shopkeeper displayed all that in his shop lie
But she went thorough all failing to make a decision
Then the shopkeeper asked what was the reason.

She said, “I want a tie that would make my
son among audience stand out,
And that is what I am out.”
“Ma’am,” he replied, “any tie makes the audience eyes stand out,
If you tie around your son’s neck tight!.”

Not Mine!


5 years old Gopal was ill
So his mother decided to take him to hospital
As Gopal was afraid of doctors
Taking him for his mother was a big ordeal.

She got Gopal into a vehicle
And brought him to hospital
Amid crying and shouting
Doctor in examination table seated him.

With a smile doctor asked,
“Hmm… which shoulder should I give injection”,
Terrified Gopal at once replied,
“Your shoulder is the one!.”
Like an ability or a muscle, hearing your inner wisdom is strengthened by doing it. -Robbie Gass

How India could become a knowledge Superpower

EX-PEZ APJ Abdual Kalam said India can become a knowledge superpower. For it we need to take a look at the advantage of learning online.

In Internet cafĂ©’s, the learner-centered web-based environment is available. Here nothing could be thought but everything could be learnt. So it is more attractive than traditional classrooms where class teachers are some time moody while computer is not.

As authentic material is available in the web and you get the opportunity to interact with those people who are proficient in the field of your interest anywhere around the world helping you to acquire knowledge and improve your skills.

Hey Ram!, What Bapu's principle has come to....

Mahatma Gandhi’s principle of non-violence is “means are more important than end” through which he brought freedom which everyone could proudly preserve for generations, but now with ‘use and throw’ culture, that is “end is more important than means” its experience won’t last even for a life time.

Indian-led group finds way to measure neutron stars

MUMBAI: After Chandrayaan-1's discovery of water molecules on the Moon comes another astronomy breakthrough for India. An international group lead by Sudip Bhattacharyya, a 36-year-old space scientist at Mumbai's Tata Institute of Fundamental research, has discovered a way to measure the size of neutron stars. Before we go any further, what is a neutron star? Speaking to TOI on Monday, Bhattacharyya explained: "To put it simply, it is the final stage of a very massive star. When the massive star burns up its fuel, it collapses to become a neutron star," he said, adding that there are between 100 million and 1,000 million neutron stars in the galaxy. On average, a neutron star is very small — approximately 10km in diameter — and 10,000 light years from Earth, thus making it extremely difficult to study and measure. Bhattacharyya and his team's research revealed the unsuspected property of X-ray bursts given off by the stars, which led to the discovery that the pattern of X-rays generated might reveal their true size. "Since these X-rays cannot reach the Earth because of a blanket created by the atmosphere, data was collected of more than 900 bursts from 43 neutron stars through a Nasa satellite and transmitted to us," Bhattacharyya said. The scientist and his colleagues — Coleman Miller of the University of Maryland and Galloway Monash of the University of Australia — modelled how the temperature of the bursts changed as they faded and found it varied in relation to the radius of the star. The team's research has been accepted for publication in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

Gopal was travelling alone in flight
With a little old beard man in next seat
Who was resting his head on shoulders of a beautiful lady
And he wished to be next to the pretty.

When Air hostess came to check the ticket
Gopal found himself in greener wicket
The old man’s seat belonged to him
And in seconds he had fulfilled his dream.
