I think people do take me for a Fool sometimes, here is an example of something like that, I need some money desperately so I planned to sell My bike, put it on selling websites and got funny offers which have left me surprised, I somehow dont trust myself anymore the more I think about myself

The Ad. for the bike says

Got a few offers  and one came from Italy and here is what the person had to say, he offered to do a private sale via email 🙂 , I sent him a email saying it is available..  The response came

Hello
for the bike the offer price is € 900.
the offer reason is because I live in Italy, and the bike should be sent in my city, so the shipping costs around 500 €.
I want to know, the bike has engine problems? Abuto has problems in
I Await your kind reply. Yours sincerely.
Antonio

I was pretty happy for that Offer 🙂 so Replied back ..

Hi

I have no idea how to ship it to italy. There were no problems with the engine , I been driving it around .. but this year its just been sitting in the garage .. hence selling it

I have tons of spare parts also along with it , almost everything .

Thanks
Bik

 

The reply came ..

Hello.
So you accept my offer of € 900?
For shipment I inform me and I’ll let you know.
In the event that I agree to buy your bike, after seeing her in Italy and above all it checked by the mechanic, if you have problems we should feel.
It is a sign of assurance that I ask you, why
motorcycle goes first checked and then paid. I think even you would agree ..

This made me a bit curious, I wrote back

Hello

so you want me to send the motorcycle to Italy.. You will get it checked by a garage. and then pay me ..
What happens if you dont like the bike .. Who sends it BACK.. and What happens if you do not pay me after getting the bike in italy ..

Thanks

 

And the funniest was the reply.. have a read of this .. first the MATHS does not fit at all and I am a bit bamboozled

Hello.
Just what you say!
So I pay 50% deposit then shipping in Italy I checked by a mechanic. If there are problems I pay less according to the work that will have to carry the bike.
For example: the bike costs 900 € you pay at the beginning € 450 in Italy to the port there will be work to do than controlling costs 200/300 €, you pay the difference at the end ie 150/200 €.
I hope you understand.

 

I don’t understand the Maths as I said , I get 450 .. I pay 450 to port, then 200/300 for something .. so that makes 750.. he has offered 900 Euros.. which means I get 150 euros for the BIKE and that is also up in air .. once the bike lands in Italy I may not get anything 🙂

So basically I am selling the bike for 150 and doing all the exporting etc .. 🙂 BARGAINnnnnnnnnnnn

Or am I reading something Wrong here …

 

This is the easiest post to put, yesterday were the selections for NBA D-League and My brother has been selected for the Long island Nets, He was their Fourth pick, and Diwali all over again for  us.

He is now only the second Indian basketball-er to play in the D-League, the minor division of the elite NBA, but sadly as is with every sport  other than cricket in India the Indian Govt. just did not do enough to keep a talent like him in the country.

The Punjab Govt has been the worst, ministers and officials are busy filling their own coffers, not interested in welfare of sports Athletes, what a shame BUT  never mind I think the best decision was to go abroad, hard work and lots of sweat was put in to reach this place, At least now he can achieve his full potential, Loss for Indian Govt. But then its ok they deserve it , and I don’t want to put a damper talking of our Govt apathy on such a milestone day and a HAPPY DAY..

I have so many pics and videos of him playing but sadly wordpress would not let me put videos in the post and I don’t know how to put them up.

From such a humble beginning he has achieved so much..  My best wishes to my brother and here’s wishing he makes us all more and MORE proud..

So Everyone please please Pray for him and send your blessings…  next year this time hopefully MAIN LEAGUE 🙂 or am I expecting too much, I have told him he BETTER work his A__E off, last night, no matter what the MAIN league is the Target if not next year then 2018.. OH YESssssssss  , I am already packing my bags to go visit and see Him in Action ..

So Watch out People Punjabi’s are in the House .. 

 

CHAKK DE MUNDIYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAa…..

BUUUURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaa  🙂

 

Various newspapers in india have the following to say …

I  been wondering what to write about when Today as I was reading the news , I got so ashamed, at the way Indian Government treats the citizens.. What made me even more ashamed was the fact how we the Indians treat each other.

With the recently concluded Rio Olympics the whole nation was going on and on and ONNNNNNNNNnn about how we won a couple of medals, there were posts being dedicated to the winners .. How they made it blah blah blah.. Some celebrities were coming out of their holes doling prize money .. I even heard Mr. Salman khan who earns Millions gave a sum of One lakh rupee to the Wrestler.   (I just read so please don’t shoot me if it right or wrong)..

Now lets come to the On going Paralympic going on in RIO,  India so far has won 8 .. yes you heard right EIGHT medals ,

 

medaltally

 

WE have Two Gold , Three silver and 3 Bronze …..

BUT the question that I have is to the comment made by our Sports Minister Vijay Goel on Wednesday, According to a leading Newspaper he refused to commit if medallists of the ongoing Rio Paralympics will be conferred with the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award — the highest sporting honour in the country. An Olympic medallist directly qualifies for the Khel Ratna award but Mr. Goel said there was no such policy in place for the Paralympians. “Our Paralympians have made India proud by winning four medals so far in Rio. But on the issue of awards, there has been no decision on any such policy for Paralympians. We will take up the matter,”  ..   How Sad is that for a country

We sent a delegation of 100+ sports men/women to the Main Olympics, who came back with 2 medals , almost all the media was hyping about it all, no end of sponsorships, leading sports people including Mr. Sachin Tendulkar were the sports Brand for olympics..

In contrast to that, look at the delegation sent for Paralympics , who have already won 8 medals including 2 Gold, Don’t see any sponsors running after them, maybe because all the sports authorities could not go along with the delegation for ANOTHER Holiday to RIO with all expenses paid.

Even the Twitter handles are quiet Sleepy , no furore on the winnings  not even the insults that flew around earlier against the authorities , people just seem to be oblivious to this event going on,  Whatsapp groups are quiet too.. Very Strange… Blogging World is QUIET too, dont see any blogs written.. 

It is indeed a shame for us too as citizens we cry hoarse at everything but now that the time is there to be proud of these brilliant sports men/women who have gone through MORE hardships then some of the ABLE Athletes we are not even ready to acknowledge their feats let alone feel proud of their achievements.

Well done to all the Athletes who made it to the games , Really proud of you guys. Brillaintly Done Guys, you deserve many many accolades fingers crossed and I hope.  sorry for the Way we as a nation Treat the sports personalities.  Thank you for making us so proud.

I had this post earlier .. Got nothing else to write so i thought I shall re-write it , hope I gets more views this time:) just being greedy ..

I was watching a program and heard a few nice tit-bits, imagine what u can do with your mobile phones. Here are a few ideas or tricks one can play on friends 🙂 ..

You are all sitting in a pub and send some messages to , someone from the phone of a person who has gone to the loo. Just imagine the reaction of this guy, the hell he is in, if you send a text to the wife or girl friend of the person who left the phone

“Dont worry it’s ok, she will never find out X X X X” (XX is for kiss kiss:) )

oooh he is gonna have fun when he reaches home:) or meets her…

or or or how about, you know how a text can be sent to everyone in the contacts , send a text to everyone in your phonebook saying

Saying

“I found out your secret Cant talk now, text me … ”

I did that I got a few text back but one my friend replied one Word …

“HOW” …:)

 

Two friends got very upset over the fact, that they had to pay a lot of money, for the pay as you go phones so they decided to get two homing pigeons, use them for sending messages to each other .. they started doing that but one day one of them got a note from other with nothing written on it .. this makes him mad, so he used his PHONE to call the other to asks whats that for ..

Oh that was a missed call… the friend replied.:)

And oh yeah have you ever by mistake changed the language on the phone .. here is a idea what you can do … get your mates phone and change the language to Chinece or russian .. anything other that what he uses:) he he he he .. that would be funny .. How does he change it back ..

So people who read this lets hear whats the funny thing you have done on your or your friends phone ….
