Be Careful when eating apples.

Be Careful when eating apples.

Please don't eat the skin of the apple because it's coated with wax.

Check before eating any of the fruits.

WAX is being used for preservation purposes and cold storage.


You might be surprised especially apples from USA and other parts are more than one year old, though it would look fresh. Because wax is coated, preventing bacteria to enter. So it does not get dry.

Please Eat Apples after removing the wax as demonstrated below, follow this and let know others

Should Blogs be regulated!

Chyetanya Kunte, an Indian blogger living in Netherlands, was unhappy with the way a mainstream media journalist reported news about the Mumbai terror attacks and decided to blog his thoughts .Unfortunately, that reaction didn’t go down too well with the NDTV journalist especially Ms Barkha Dutt and their legal team therefore forced this blogger to withdraw the original story and also asked an unconditional apology.The blogger did so, but strong reaction is coming against barkha dutta and in favor of the poor blogger.

The latest trend: Paper jewellery

Got this interesting Article on the net...

Good to be true... :)

Soaring gold prices, coupled with a craze for being trendy has prompted young women to go in for environment-friendly, cheap paper jewellery.

And the advantages are many. For one, paper jewellery, made from recycled paper with water, is bio-degradable and non-allergic. It is light, durable, sweat resistant and can withstand normal pressure. Also, normal water contact does not damage it, says an entrepreneur.

To make it involves a labour-intensive process, wherein each bead is hand rolled, glued and triple-varnished. Women from disadvantaged backgrounds are usually hired to help with production.

"We use mill made recycled paper, which helps reduce our carbon footprint and helps the environment," Usha Natrajan, managing parter of city-based Mahalakshmi Creations, which is incorporated with 80 entrepreneurs on paper jewellery, told PTI here.

Saying that paper jewellery could be customised in any colour and pattern, which is more economically viable than gold jewellery, she said most of her customers were in the 20-35 age group. "Mostly young girls evince interest in buying the jewellery," she added.

Explaining the method involved in making paper jewellery, Usha said that paper is first manually moulded into beads of different shapes and sizes. Utmost care is taken in bonding, strengthening, hardening, colouring and waterproofing. The paper beads are then adorned with crystals, stones, chatons, kundan, glass beads, polki, semi-precious stones, acrylic beads, and horn beads, she added. She said her company has produced more than 2,000 designs in 40 colours so far .

"Special designs are being developed for changing seasons and moods. The range varies from elaborate and detailed designs to basics," she said. She said that prices for a pair of earrings start at Rs 45.

Usha explained that acceptance of paper jewellery is catching on. "We give options to customers, right from choosing the main design base to the beads. We then fix original Swarovski glass beads, cultured beads and pearls.We do not use chemicals in any process while making the jewellery," she said.

Started in a small way in 2006, Usha's company sold paper jewellery worth Rs 3 lakh in its first year. "After that, there has been a steady growth in sales of 40 percent every year," she added.

Sivaranjani, a college student, said she preferred to wear paper jewellery since there are many designs and it is eco-friendly. "It is cheap," she said.

Dermatologists say no research has yet been conducted on the possible effects of wearing paper jewellery, as it is a new entrant into the market.

H1N1 or Swine Flu

This was one of the images that were flashed with Swine Flu or H1N1.
Interesting to note that this virus was originally referred to as swine flu because laboratory testing showed that many of the genes in this new virus were very similar to influenza viruses that normally occur in pigs in North America. But further study has shown that this new virus is very different from what normally circulates in North American pigs. It has two genes from flu viruses that normally circulate in pigs in Europe and Asia and avian genes and human genes. Scientists call this a “quadruple reassortant” virus.

Wow!!!

Fake IPL Player

What is drawing more eyeballs than the cheerleaders at the season-2 of IPL? Surprise surprise – It’s a BLOG? And that too a mole’s blog.

The “Fake IPL Player”, as he calls himself, claims to be a part of Shahrukh Khan’s team ‘The Kolkata Knight Riders’, and is writing away to glory at the expense of the ‘who’s who’ at IPL. Just a few days old, the blog, http://fakeiplplayer.blogspot.com/, has already managed to hit headlines on all major newspapers and has a fan following that runs in thousands. What's more, the blog has created quite a stir at the Indian Premier League. Reason being, the stories posted are more about dressing room politics, jazzy team owners, who’s dating whom and the players’ off field exploits, than about IPL. Of course with malice towards one and all…all but “Sourav Ganguly, The Lordie”.

The fake names used by the blogger to refer to the ‘who’s who’ are pretty creative, yet identifiable. Sample this:

Lord Almighty - Sourav Ganguly

Big Sister - Shilpa Shetty

Babli - Preity Zinta

Prince Charles of Patiala - Yuvraj Singh

Havaii Chappal - Greg Chapel

Sandy Baddy babe - Mandira Bedi

Bevdaa Team - Bangalore Royal Challengers

The interest generated by this blog, forced the KKR CEO Joy Bhattacharya to come out with a response:

"Poison pen writing of the dirtiest variety, but far too many factual errors. Whoever it is out there is obviously very sick, perverted and has far too little information or insight to successfully pretend to be a part of us," he said.

However, the blogger claims that there are frenetic attempts to smoke him out. He goes on to say that, “Laptops hv bn banned. I'net removed fm rooms. But posts wl continue thru SMS, relayed by my bro in India."

With more and more milk products from China and Taiwan having problem. We really got to check where the things are produced. Here is a way to differentiate Taiwan made products and China made products : by looking at first three digits of its Bar Code.

If the 1st 3 digits are 690, 691 or 692 - China made
If the 1st 3 digits are 471 - Taiwan made


So please spread the words to everyone......
Nowadays, China businessmen know the consumers do not prefer products "made in china", so they won't show made from which country.
However, you may now refer to the barcodes, if the first 3 digits is 690-692 then it is made in China .

The Inauguration of President Barack Obama


Yesterday was a historic day. On January 20th, 2009, Barack H. Obama was sworn in as the 44th President of the USA - the first African-American ever to hold the office of U.S. Commander-in-Chief. The event was witnessed by well over one million attendees in chilly Washington D.C., and by many millions more through coverage on television and the Internet. Collected here are photographs of the event, the participants, and some of the witnesses around the world.
