Just today the great petroleum ministry has decided that if you dont have ADHAR number, you dont deserve an LPG cylinder. There are many goods and evils in this decision as usual.
Normally distrubuters show fake customers and sell the cylinders at a price difference of 50 to 150 INR to other customers and this would bring an end to it. The problem is, genuine users would be forced into problems.
You go to go stand in the long line, get 10 finger prints, IRIS scan and after that you are not sure how safe your personal data is!!! Since its given to a 3rd party for implementation, we dont know if the data entry operator can cut a CD with 150 names of the street and sell it for 150 INR!! How safe are with with personal details falling into criminal hands?
Future is indeed network based but should have enough safeguards before jumping on to the bandwagon.
The ADHAR is a poison coated apple!!

A recent bout of chicken guniya for the entire family, the frequent visits to doctors of all sizes, specialization including my sons 3 day admission to hospital and lots of money down the drain later…. have learnt some wisdom to share with people around
1. Keep washing your hands repeatedly with any ordinary soap – dettol etc are not required. This will ensure most of the virus/bacteria get removed. Anti bactirial require you to have your hand soaked for atleast 45 seconds to start work.
2. Avoid touching your eyes, noes, ears, mouth unless its sanitized as in step 1.
3. Stay away from people with Cold / Flu symptoms. I do not mean to make them social outcasts but obviously you can stop the spread of the germs. A one meter distance is required to be maintained.
4. Stay away from crowds, ensure your presence only when absolutely required.
5. Use a musquito net and ensure surroundings are clean
The above practices can save you from many diseases which are on killer prowl like dengue, Influenza A, Malaria, Filaria.
As a family we have not yet recovered from Chicken guniya and is antogonizing for a simple musquito bite, one has to endure pain for unlimited months and there are no medicines to control or alter the same till god intervenes.

A hypothetical situation where 20 CEOs board an airplane and are told
That the flight that they are about to take is the first-ever to feature
“It is an uncrewed aircraft.”
Each one of the CEOs is then told, privately, that their company’s software
is running the aircraft’s automatic pilot system.
Nineteen of the CEOs promptly leave the aircraft, each offering a different
type of excuse.
One CEO alone remains on board the jet, seeming very calm indeed.
Asked why he is so confident in this first uncrewed flight, he
replies: “If it is the same software that’s developed by my company’s IT systems
department, this plane won’t even take off!!!! .”
That is called Confidence!!!

Two boys were arguing when the teacher entered the room.
The teacher says, “Why are you arguing?”
One boy answers, “We found a ten dollor and decided to give it to whoever tells the biggest lie.”
“You should be ashamed of yourselves,” said the teacher, “When I was your age I didn’t even know what a lie was.”
The boys gave the ten dollars to the teacher.

VINAYA HEGDE forwards a good forward:
“Last night my wife and I were sitting in the living room, talking about life. In between, we talked about the idea of living or dying.
“I said to her: ‘Never let me live in a vegetative state, totally dependent on machines and liquids from a bottle. If you see me in that state I want you to disconnect all the contraptions that are keeping me alive, I’d much rather die.’
“Then my wife got up from the sofa with a real look of admiration towards me and proceeded to disconnect the TV, the cable, the dish, the DVD, the computer, the cell phone, the iPod, and the X-box, and then went to the fridge and threw away all my beer.
“I almost died.”
