Pongal was celebrated on the first day of the Tamil month 'Thai'. The pot in which Pongal is cooked is called "Pongal Panai". The word Pongal means rice cooked in milk and jaggery. 'Pongal' is a celebration of spring on the occasion of the 'ascent' of the sun to the north. It is the celebration of the harvest season. It is celebrated for four days in Tamil Nadu.

The first day is called 'Bhogi Pongal', the second day 'Surya Pongal' and the third day 'Mattu Pongal'. Bhogi Pongal is celebrated as a family festival. Bhogi pongal is dedicated to Lord Indra. It is the day for spring cleaning. All old and unwanted things are thrown away or burnt. At that time boys beat little drums known as Bhogi Kottu which are specially made for the occasion with buffalo hide. The second day is dedicated to the sun (Surya) when Pongal is boiled by women and offered to the sun. Friends greet one another by asking whether rice is boiled.

The Chakhara Pongal made of rice and jaggery, seasoned with ghee, cashew nut and other spices, is a speciality for the occasion. Mattu Pongal, the third day is a day dedicated to the worship and veneration of the cattle (mattu). The Chakhara Pongal that has been offered to the local deity is given to the cattle to eat. The cattle are bathed, decorated and their horns are painted in bright colours. Coloured balls of the pongal are also made and left in the open for birds. In the villages of Madurai, Tirucherapalli and Tanjore, the final day of pongal called Kannum Pongal is indulged in existing past times like 'jallikettu' or manji virattu. Jallikettu is a kind of bull fight. Bundles containing money are tied to the horns of ferocious bulls and armed villagers try to wrest the bundles from them. In Manji virattu young man ride on bull's back for some distance and remove the money bag tied around the neck. Some men were seriously wounded and immediately removed.

Pongal is prepared in two big earthen pots and it is offered to a special miniature Ganesh made of cow-dung. The cow dung Ganesh was decorated with arugampal, thumbai flowers and avarama flowers. special kolam was drawn on the floor, decorated with red sand and the pongal pots placed over it. Turmeric, ginger, sugar cane, yellow garlands and a stick which is used to drive the bulls is offered to Ganesh in puja.

How to Answer the Four Most Common Interview Questions

There are some questions that tend to pop up during almost every job interview.
The bad news: These questions can be quite difficult to answer.

The good news: Because they are so common, you can prepare for them well in advance and give a perfect answer without breaking a sweat.

1. "Tell Me a Little About Yourself"

Sometimes the most general question can be the hardest. How can you sum up your entire life story in
just a couple of minutes?

You don't.

This oldest of questions is not an invitation to talk about your difficult childhood, your favorite
grandmother or how you won the state swim competition in high school. Instead, it's a request for you to
describe what you can offer the company.

In his excellent book 101 Great Answers to the
Toughest Interview Questions, author Ron Fry suggests
focusing on:

Your key accomplishments at previous jobs.The strengths demonstrated by those accomplishments.
How these relate to the job for which you're applying.

The goal is not to summarize your resume -- the interviewer already has a copy of that. Rather, tell
how you came to be interested in this particular company and job, and weave examples of past
accomplishments throughout to demonstrate why you are the perfect candidate.

2. "Why Did You Leave Your Last Job?"

Did you resign? Get laid off? Get fired? Storm out of the office in a huff, never to return? Chances are,
you'll have to explain it in an interview.

The most important point to remember when answering
this question: STAY POSITIVE.

The biggest sign of a troublemaker is when someone trashes his or her former boss or company during an
interview. It doesn't matter if your boss was a jerk or if you hated your coworkers -- an interview is not
the place to vent past frustrations.

Rather, the best way to answer this question is to stay positive and talk about your desire for growth
opportunities. This will paint you as a proactive employee who enjoys responsibility and challenges.

Here are some quick pointers for answering this question, depending on your circumstances:

IF YOU WERE FIRED: Be honest, but quick about explaining it. Don't get into the political details;
rather, explain what you learned from the experience and how it makes you an even stronger employee today.
It's not a good idea to lie about your termination.When the interviewer calls your references, he or she
will most likely find out you were fired anyway. So be honest, and explain what you learned.

IF YOU WERE LAID OFF: This is not nearly as taboo as it was even five years ago, so don't apologize or act
defeated. If a company goes bankrupt or had massive layoffs, simply explain, "Because of the economy, the
company decided to eliminate six departments, including mine."

IF YOU QUIT: Again, be honest and stay positive. State that the work being offered wasn't challenging enough,
that you are seeking higher levels of responsibility or simply that you are ready to make the next step on
your career ladder -- and that the job for which you are interviewing is the ideal next step.

The secret is to stay positive and discuss your desire for growth. Hiring managers love applicants who
actively seek responsibility.

3. "What's Your Biggest Weakness?"

What are you supposed to do -- tell them why they SHOULDN'T hire you?

The "weakness" question is popular with interviewers not because they want to torture you, but because
they're interested in hearing how you tackle challenges.

The most important thing to remember is that after you name your weakness, you MUST discuss what you have
done to overcome it.

Pick a weakness that is real but understandable or relatively harmless. Whatever weakness you pick, be
sure that it is work-related ("I have a tendency to overfeed my dog" is NOT an appropriate weakness) and
that you present the strategies for how you overcame it.

Here are a few examples:

"I used to have a tendency to procrastinate. So now I am always sure to set a strict schedule for all of my
projects well in advance and I set personal deadlines. This organization has really helped."

"Once in a while, I focus too much on the details of a project. So now, when I'm working on a project, I
always make sure at the end of the day to sit back and take a few minutes to think about the general scope of
my work. It forces me to keep priorities straight and helps me keep the right mindset."

"I used to have some problems with organization. So now I carry a schedule book around throughout the day
and I also use this Palm Pilot to keep me on track. It's worked out great!" You don't want to pick a weakness
that will torpedo your chances -- even your weakness should speak strongly toward your skills. The examples
above all address honest weaknesses; here are a few other "safe" weaknesses that are easy to discuss:

I tend to be a perfectionist.
I sometimes work too hard, leading to unnecessary stress.

4. "Do You Have Any Questions for Me?"

Yes, you do.

You should always try to ask a thoughtful question or two at the end of an interview. It shows that you've
been listening and that you've done your research on the company.

What should you ask? In his book 101 Great Answers to the Toughest Interview Questions, Ron Frey suggests
some of the following queries:

Does this job usually lead to other positions at the company? What kind of positions?

What do you like best about this company? Why? DO NOT ask about salary, vacation days, benefits or
anything else that would make it look like you're more interested in the compensation package than the
company. Also, don't ask too many questions; just a couple will be fine.

And the most important question of all: Don't forget to ask for the job!

I'm very interested in this job. It's exactly the kind of job that I'm looking for. What is the next step in
the interview process?

Hope These things will be helpful to you.

Stroke - Not A Story

The below message is a beautiful piece of medical fact.The points given here are 100% true.It might take u 2 mins to read the entire passage but it is really worth it.

So plzzzzz go thro'. It might help u sometime.

Health - Recognizing a stroke!

Maybe you are in perfect Health to bother about this. But then, you may have an opportunity to save a family member, friend or stranger.

During a outdoor dinner at a seaside resort near Chennai, a friend stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine and just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food - while she appeared a bit shaken up, Lakshmi (name changed) went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.

Her husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 pm, Lakshmi passed away). She had suffered a stroke at the dinner- had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke perhaps Lakshmi would be alive today.

It only takes a minute to read this:

A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke... totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed and getting to the patient within 3 hours which is tough. There is nothing more life saving than getting the patient to the hospital in the FIRST ONE HOUR! The Golden
Hour it is now known as to Doctors and emergency attendents alike!


Remember the "3" steps. Read and Learn!

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.

Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:

1. *Ask the individual to SMILE.

2. *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

3. *Ask the person to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (i.e. . . It is sunny out today).

If he or she has trouble with any of these tasks, call emergency immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
After discovering that a group of non-medical volunteers could identify facial weakness, arm weakness and speech problems, researchers urged the general public to learn the three questions. Widespread use of this test could result in prompt diagnosis and treatment of the stroke and prevent brain damage.

Four Management Lessons..

A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day.
A small rabbit saw the crow, and asked him, "Can I also sit like you
and do nothing all day long?
The crow answered: "Sure, why not." so, the rabbit sat on the ground
below the crow, and rested.
All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

Management Learning:
To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high

A turkey was chatting with a bull.
"I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree," sighed the
turkey, "but I haven't got the energy.
"Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?" replied the bull.
"They're packed with nutrients."
The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it actually gave him
enough strength to reach the first branch of the tree.
The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second
Finally after a fourth night, there he was proudly perched at the top
of the tree. Soon he was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot the turkey
out of the tree.

Management Learning:
Bullshit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there.
A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold, the bird
froze and fell to the ground in a large field.
While it was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on it.
As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, it began to
realize how warm it was.
The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy,
and soon began to sing for joy.
A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate.
Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow
dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him!

Management Learning:
1) Not everyone who drops shit on you is your enemy.
2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.
3) And when you're in deep shit, keep your mouth shut!

The boy rode on the donkey and the old man walked.
As they went along, they passed some people who remarked "it was a
the old man was walking and the boy was riding".
The man and boy thought maybe the critics were right, so they changed
Later, they passed some people that remarked, "What a shame, he makes
that little boy walk."
They decide d they both would walk!
Soon they passed some more people who thought they were stupid to walk
when they had a decent donkey to ride.
So the both rode the donkey! Now they passed some people that shamed
them by saying "how awful to put such a load on a poor donkey".
The boy and man said they were probably right so they decided to carry
the donkey.
As they crossed a bridge, they lost their grip on the animal and he
fell into the river and drowned.

Management Learning:
If you try to please everyone, you will eventually lose your ass
