I open my mail and here it is. A whooping cash of Rs 3.5 Million waiting for me. And I was the one of the few selected from entire India,for this much cash prize.

The mail sent to me read like this…

Now this mail was sent by a well known Job portal named as some famous magazine. Spamming my mailbox in the name of promotions!!! Outrageous, Intolerable!

 

Another Interesting Incident

Recently, I had experienced a spamming sequence which was unusual and the guy on the other side was persistently sending mails. My friend works in a well known bank. I had gone to his bank for some official work. While I had been there, He received a mail from an NRI customer, say Mr X. The mail said something Un-Interesting happened with Mr X. He said He had been to London for an official trip [he lives in London]. The hotel he was staying in was robbed, [mind it, hotel was robbed]. He lost his wallet, his documents and what all [he lives in london, why the hell ! he needed a hotel UNLESS… 😉 ]. He said, he had 2-3 Fixed deposits in that branch [the name actually had FD]. He asked very politely, to send those money through Western Union or Money gram. [ the bank has discontinued the services of Western Union or money Gram].

Branch manager replied very politely that the services are not available. Manager also asked him to quote his account number. No sooner did he reply, he got reply to his mail.

The bugger had replied with an account number alien to the branch 🙂 .

I casually asked the manager, Sir I think this is spam. He said, “Yes, I know. I’m just checking how far does he go?” 😀

Finally the guy on the other side understood, here it would not be possible 😀 😀

Moral of the Story

Beware of Spams particularly with your financial transactions. Never ever divulge details of your account number, password, username, date of birth etc to anyone, either through mail or Phone.

Banks would never ask these stuffs on Phone or mail.

P.S.  Don’t click on any link in the mail

Well, It was another eventful day for me. Yesterday, it was one software creating trouble. With a change of hand, I need to get in the groove asap. But a problem like yesterday is harrowing experience. We tried to deal with it till late night, no success. Finally called it a day. Early morning back to it. It was last date for submission. So needed to get it done fast. Finally after some repeated uninstallation-Reinstallation procedures, it was straightened. Having done that I had a good sleep 🙂

Waiting for peaceful Sunday.

Life of netizens. Facebook, twitter and what not. How close have we become. Have we? Did you have any situation when a distant relative sent you friend request and the very sight of that request sent chillers down your spine. Someone like Jaunpur wali mamiji or Timbaktu wale chacha. 🙂  Read this interesting post on Freebird.

I’m dying, But so are you all

An interesting form of greetings, isn’t it?  “How are you feeling?” But the answer can be more interesting.

Let me share with you what happened this morning. As usual I started for my office at 8:30 am. While I was getting down the stairs, My landlord’s son comes out of his house. I asked, How you doing? The guy’s reply made me think for a while.

“Don’t ask bro I’m darn pissed”Why what happened?…. You don’t know? … NO… Damn this Indian Bowling… (I smiled, every one has the same grudge. It’s surprising, No body had stoned Dhoni’s house or issued death threat yet.) Controlling my thoughts I said, sh’IT’ happens, don’t mind.

I didn’t expect such a reply to a very common form of greetings. 🙂 Anyway, I came across this tweet from Deepak Chopra. An interesting and thought-provoking reply to the very same question.

“How are you feeling?”    “I’m dying. But so are you all.”   Lord Budhha

Have you ever thought of this? We all are dying one day, finally. Why not give life your best. Share your bright and best moments, share good things, good news. Share your happiness, your sorrows and most of all Share your Smile. 🙂 Life is too short to hate anyone. It’s a gift of GOD. Use it wisely.  Be good to all.

PS: Sorry Dhoni, I was van-damn angry at you. But that was yesterday. Do your best. 🙂

Meaning of Life…

What would you Do with One million Dollar?

That seen/unseen, felt/unfelt supreme being has given life in all forms on this beautiful planet. But the most capable of them all is human, who can transform clay to diamonds and fossils to fuels… bacteria to medicines. Anyway, life has its meaning for every one of us and if you haven’t found it yet. Give it a shot at least. Because the meaning of life is to give meaning to life.
