New Punjabi singing sensation Miss Pooja. Born in Rajpura in Patiala district on April 12, 1979, this thirty two year old singer is basically well trained in classical music. Her original name is Gurinder Kaur Kainth. She took training and grooming in classical music under Ustad Kesar Nand Kesar, followed by more advanced continuing education under Mohinder Singh Nagina. It appears that Miss Pooja did a lot of “Riyaz” during her formative years. For two years Gurinder Kaur Kainth was a teacher of music too, which exercise also helped her tremendously.
Surprisingly Miss Pooja does not appear during the weddings and social occasions, especially in India. She refuses to hold an “Akhara” in the villages in India. But she gladly and wholeheartedly does lots of live entertainment shows abroad, where she makes a lot of money. She is always a big hit in America and Canada. It appears that she is very intelligent, she makes her decisions very carefully and once she decides to take a plunge, she does it totally unhesitatingly. All her decisions are right on the money. Most of the songs sung by Miss Pooja have been penned by Karamjit Puri of Bhagta Bhai Ka.
Miss Pooja has already recorded more than one hundred CDs and videos, mostly in duet format. All these are proving best sellers. She is continuing to churn out song after song. In fact she is proving to be a phenomenon unmatched in the history of Punjabi singing in both Punjabs.
Very soon we will all hear that Miss Pooja has broken the record of Late Surinder Kaur as the most recorded Punjabi singer in India.

This world is like an inn where travelers come to rest and then get ready to leave.
Everyone will leave at his turn. No one will be left behind.
Many have left in front of my eyes and many will observe my departure.

1. Argyria : Blue Skin, a real-life Smurf
A condition caused by the ingestion of silver, the Argyria's most dramatic symptom is that the skin becomes blue or bluish-grey colored. On 2008, ABC reporters interviewed Paul Karason, 40 year-old who's skin turned blue after he used colloidal silver to ease his ailments. It started a decade ago, when he saw an ad in a new-age magazine promising health and rejuvenation through colloidal silver. Karason sent away for a kit for making colloidal silver -- a home brew of microscopic silver particles suspended in water. For a while, he was drinking at least 10 ounces a day as a cure for arthritis. "I had arthritis in my shoulders so bad I couldn't pull a T-shirt off. And the next thing I knew, it was just gone." he explained the media, but these claims have no basis in science and after a couple of months, his whole skin turned blue. "I kind of hoped it would fade off!" But it didn't fade off. Argyria is permanent. 2. Human Pappiloma Virus: meet the Tree Man
After a severe Human Pappiloma Virus (HPV) infection, Dede Koswara, a 35-year-old Indonesian fisherman, was dubbed the "tree man" because of the gnarled warts all over his body. He first noticed the warts on his body after cutting his knee as a teenager. Over time, Dede was sacked from his job, deserted by his wife and shunned by neighbours as the horn-like extensions covered much of his body and stopped him working. He has two children. After his case received widespread publicity, donations from the public and government help allowed him to get treatment, and in 2008, six kilos of warts were surgically removed from his body. 3. Hypertrichosis: the Human Werewolf Syndrome
Hypertrichosis is a medical condition that causes excessive growth of hair in areas where hair does not normally grow. It may be present over the entire body, or you could have it in only one or more areas. Some individuals will be born with the condition and others will develop it later on in life. Congenital Hypertrichosis is very rare. In fact, it is so rare that there have been only 50 verified cases since the Middle Ages. On 2008, the press interviewed Pruthviraj Patil, an 11-year-old indian boy who's face and body are covered with hair. He rarely leaves his home village in India because of the cruelty of strangers. Pruthviraj’s family has tried homeopathy, traditional Indian Ayurvedic remedies even laser surgery without success, and he's now appealing to doctors to help him find a permanent cure since even after laser treatment the hair grows back. 4. Dermatographia: overly sensitive skin
Dermatographia is a rare condition where the skin is overly sensitive to minor injuries; even light scratches will cause it to become red and raised. The person's immune system exhibits hypersensitivity, via skin, that releases excessive amounts of histamine, causing capillaries to dilate and welts to appear (lasting about thirty minutes) when the skin’s surface is lightly scratched. In 2008, Neatorama featured artist Ariana Page Russell, who decided to use her medical condition as the basis for art, with some amazing results.

A bar inside the trunk of a Baobab tree has tourists flocking from far and wide just to drink a cold brew in the amazing tavern. It was fashioned inside a massive 72 foot (22 meters) high tree in a garden in Limpopo, South Africa, for thirsty locals.
Grown in the grounds of Sunland Farm, the tree trunk is so wide it takes 40 adults with outstretched arms to encircle its 155 foot (48 meters) circumference. The trunk is hollow, but its walls are still up to 6.5 feet (2 meters) thick.
The tree has its own cellar, with natural ventilation to keep the beer cold.Carbon-dating has determined the ancient tree to be about 6,000 years old. “This tree is likely to be older than the Giza Pyramids of Egypt.” said Heather van Heerden, owner of Sunland Farm.
More than 7,000 visitors come from all over the world to see the grandiose Baobab every year and have a drink in its pub, which has 13 foot (4 meter) high ceilings and comfortably seats up to 15 people.
“One year we had a party and squashed 54 people inside, but I wouldn’t recommend that.” said Mrs. van Heerden.
She and her husband Doug came up with the brainchild to set a bar up inside when they found a natural hollow in the Baobabb shortly after they bought the farm in the late 1980’s.
While clearing out the hollow centre of the tree trunk, the van Heerdens found historical evidence of Bushmen — indigenous people of the Kalahari desert — who may have once lived in the tree, and artifacts belonging to the Voortrekkers, the Dutch pioneers who travelled through South Africa in the mid-1800’s.

Surjit Patar's poem in his own voice..
ਮੇਰੀ ਕਵਿਤਾ ਮੇਰੀ ਮਾਂ ਨੂੰ.... ਮੇਰੀ ਕਵਿਤਾ ਸਮਝ ਨਾ ਆਈ
ਭਾਵੇ ਮੇਰੀ ਮਾਂ ਬੋਲੀ ਵਿਚ ਲਿਖੀ ਹੋਈ ਸੀ..
ਮੇਰੀ ਮਾਂ ਨੂੰ.... ਮੇਰੀ ਕਵਿਤਾ ਸਮਝ ਨਾ ਆਈ
ਭਾਵੇ ਮੇਰੀ ਮਾਂ ਬੋਲੀ ਵਿਚ ਲਿਖੀ ਹੋਈ ਸੀ....
ਓਹ ਤਾਹ ਕੇਵਲ ਇਂਨਾ ਸਮਝੀ ਪੁੱਤ ਦੀ ਰੂਹ ਨੂੰ ਦੁਖ ਹੈ ਕੋਈ
ਪਰ ਇਸਦਾ ਦੁਖ ਮੇਰੇ ਹੁੰਦਿਆ ਆਇਆ ਕਿਥੋਂ -੨
ਨੀੰਝ ਲਗਾ ਕੇ ਦੇਖੀ ਮੇਰੀ ਅਨਪੜ ਮਾਂ ਨੇ ਮੇਰੀ ਕਵਿਤਾ
ਦੇਖੋ ਲੋਕੋ ਕੁਖੋਂ ਜਾਏ ਮਾਂ ਨੂ ਛੱਡਕੇ ਦੁਖ ਕਾਗਜਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਲਾਉਂਦੇ ਨੇ -੨
ਮੇਰੀ ਮਾਂ ਨੇ ਕਾਗਜ ਚੁੱਕ ਸੀਨੇ ਨੂੰ ਲਾਈਆ
ਮੇਰੀ ਮਾਂ ਨੇ ਕਾਗਜ ਚੁੱਕ ਸੀਨੇ ਨੂੰ ਲਾਈਆ
ਖ਼ਬਰੇ ਇੱਦਾ ਹੀ ਕੁਝ ਮੇਰੇ ਨੇੜੇ ਹੋਏ ਮੇਰਾ ਜਾਇਆ.....
ਮੇਰੀ ਮਾਂ ਨੂੰ.... ਮੇਰੀ ਕਵਿਤਾ ਸਮਝ ਨਾ ਆਈ
ਭਾਵੇ ਮੇਰੀ ਮਾਂ ਬੋਲੀ ਵਿਚ ਲਿਖੀ ਹੋਈ ਸੀ...

Junrey Balawing, the world's new shortest man alive!
Junrey might look like an adorable child who has a slight case of the Benjamin Button's, but he just turned 18 on Sunday making him a man! Junrey celebrated his first tiny step into adulthood with a pint he could swim in, a chocolate bar he could dance with and a framed plaque from Guinness World Records declaring him the tiniest man at 22 inches tall.
Junrey said that he hopes to become the world's tiniest husband soon, "I am so excited! I am small, but now I am a man. I have tried beer for the first time. I like it but can only have a little. I want a beautiful wife. I know she will probably be taller than me.

While other one-year-olds are just learning to walk and talk, the children of the nomad Vadi Tribe are introduced to the centuries-old art of snake charming.Here's this video..
All the children of the Vadi Tribe come face to face with a poisonous cobra at age two, and go through a ten-year ritual, in which they learn all the secrets of snake charming. Both boys and girls must learn to handle snakes. While men must be able to manipulate cobras by playing the flute, the women must know how to take care of the reptiles when their husbands or brothers are away.
The Vadi treat snakes like their own children, never keeping them away from their natural habitat for more than seven months. Any longer than that would be disrespectful to the snakes, according to Babanath Mithunath Madari, the 60-year-old Vadi chief-charmer. In fact, the only time a snake actually bit his charmer, was when he kept it for more than seven months.
Vadi snake-charmersdon’t cut the fangs of their snakes, instead they feed them an herbal mixture which, they say, makes their deadly poison harmless.
Unfortunately, in 1991, the thousand-year-old tradition of snake-charming was banned in India, and the Vadi tribe are stripped of their snakes whenever they are confronted by the police. They never spend more than six months in the same place.This bizarre has been condemned by animal rights protesters after footage appeared on the internet.
They've warned that a cobra's fangs grow back quickly, putting the youngsters in mortal danger.
Several snake charmers die each year while handling the animals.

By Shefali Anand
While the recently discovered treasure in a Kerala temple has grabbed the world’s attention, India’s real treasure is hidden elsewhere.
It’s in steel cupboards and in bank vaults across the country, where India’s housewives and other private owners have stashed their jewelry and gold savings. India’s private gold holdings probably total 15,000 tons, according to an estimate by Citigroup analysts in May. Some jewelers like T.K. Chandiran of Coimbatore thinks this number is too conservative, and the real amount is more like 30,000 tons, counting other hidden temple treasures.
These private stores are in addition to the 560 tons of gold kept as reserves with the Reserve Bank of India, which are worth around $26 billion.
If we stick with the conservative 15,000-ton estimate, at the current gold price of $1,549 per ounce, India’s private gold holdings are worth approximately $743 billion.
But this is not all in the purest form of gold, so let’s knock 20% off this amount to reflect what this gold could be worth now. That would be a cool $600 billion
. The Kerala temple treasure, by the way, is only an estimated $22 billion, although there could be more riches in a still sealed vault that the Supreme Court is scheduled to hold a hearing on today.So what would happen if all of India’s private gold could be released into the system? Here are some options:Win India’s neighbors over…
By buying them. The $600 billion could be used to buy Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Myanmar and Bhutan, whose Gross Domestic Product add up to just $390 billion, according to the CIA World Factbook.
That still leaves $210 billion. That’s nearly enough to cover Malaysia, with a GDP of around $240 billion.
Of course, the one neighbor we can’t touch is China with its nearly $6 trillion GDP. India’s GDP, in comparison, is just $1.5 trillion.This is good plan but GDP don't tell about real worth of the country..
Heal the world.
Benevolent housewives would also have the power to help some foreign countries which have been struggling in recent years.
They should probably start with Greece. Normally, we wouldn’t care much about this country, but their precarious financial situation has caused much anxiety throughout the world in recent months, and some economists fear Europe’s sovereign debt troubles could rebound on the U.S., which in turn could hurt India. Greece has become the go-to excuse for market analysts every time stocks fall somewhere in the world, including India.
The housewives could end its problems once and for all by paying off Greece’s entire national debt – long and short-term – of around $474 billion.
That still leaves us with $126 billion.
It would be nice to also help our “strategic partners” the United States of America, which has been in deep financial trouble in recent years.
But like many things in America, their financial problems are super-sized.
Their budgeted fiscal deficit for 2012 is around $1.1 trillion, and their national debt at $14 trillion is enormous.
The best we can do is to help wipe out their trade deficit which stood at $44 billion in April.
But since we wouldn’t want our other powerful friend, Russia, to feel slighted, we can pay them the $36 billion we promised for creating next generation stealth fighter aircraft.Indian Housewives aren't interested in this kind of help or healing.. Building Blocks.
On a more serious note, India’s gold treasures could be used in several ways to help develop the country.
Food, education, housing – all of these need urgent investment, so our gold buyers can take their pick.
One of the options could be to use the money to build roads, power plants and other much-needed infrastructure in India. The Planning Commission says India needs to invest $1 trillion between April 2012 through March 2017 to develop infrastructure needed to keep India’s economy growing at 9% or ideally higher.
Gold owners can fund half of this.
The remaining $100 billion can be used to hire more doctors in hospitals and add more beds in them. That level of investment could help bring India’s healthcare standards to “50-75 percent of the present levels of other developing countries,” says a report by the World Health Organization.I think this is good idea and i hope Indian society and even Arabs(having lots of gold) should try to realize this and shouldn't hide so much valuable stuff in their cupboards.
Quench Oil Thirst.
The gold hoards can also pay for all of India’s oil imports for the next six years. India imports two-thirds of its oil requirements. Last year India’s oil import bill came to around $106 billion, Commerce Minister Anand Sharma told reporters in June.
Once oil is taken care of, it will automatically help turn the fate of several key economic issues for us – the trade deficit will turn into a trade surplus, and the fiscal deficit will come under control, and importantly also help bring down persistent inflation.this part is not so thoughtful, If this gold will be used once to buy oil for 6 years but whats going to happen after 6 years and whatever money would be saved during this period that would be looted by greedy politicians..
well, this is really different perspective described in this article because when i compare kind of Jewellery worn by ladies in Punjab(India) and United States. Its a huge difference as Indian ladies wear more Gold and Diamonds and here in US, Costume jewellery is more common which don't worth much.
and Government has no information about that property. Any more Views??

Punjabi brides wear Kaleeres. These are silver or gold plated ornaments tied to the Chudas. It is said that the bride has as many friends as there are leaves in the Kaleere. One interesting ritual related with the Kaleere is the custom in which a bride shakes her Kaleere over the unmarried girls in her family. It is said that if the Kaleere falls on the head of any of them, she is the next one to be married.
The bride's cousins and friends tie them to the chuda. They are like blessings for the bride for her new life and also to remind her of her old friends. It is said that the bride has as many friends as there are leaves in the kaleerey. So the more leaves the merrier!
Sometimes coconut pieces and dry fruits are tied to the kaleerey. This is because during ancient times when the bride started for her husband's home in a doli, it would take days to reach her destination. She could thus feed on the coconut and dry fruits tied to her kaleerey. Times have changed and although it takes but a few minutes to reach anywhere, the significance of this ritual still stands strong.
