Jaatre

I am sure you will be wondering what the heck is Jaatre...Jaatre in my native language (Kannada) means fair or gathering of people from all walks of life. Its basically organised at rural areas in India once a month / year. Oh yah, Jaatre is also Celebration, Celebration of life It is that time of year where they they sell, buy, eat, wine, dine, game and have loads of fun and frolic.

Well, I believe the world in itself a big Jaatre....We meet people from all walks of life, from birth to end, east to west. We talk, exchange ideas, happiness, sorrow and what not. Some have the joying of taking and Some the JOY of giving. At office its a jaatre everyday minus the fun, wine and dine part...I guess u would have got what I wanted to tell

India, they say is the karma bhoomi - u are here to pay back...pay back for all your deeds, misdeeds in past life, and you will be here until you have wash 'em all. ah,ah..

We come to this world empty handed and leave the same way and what happens in between is what we take- minus the materials, but with feelings and experiences. Some are successful, some not...
so what is Success then? I have friends, for whom working in a big company (i must say software company) is a success, for some not just getting a job in soft comp, but going Onsite is a success, for some it is making lots of money, name, fame!!!

For me as many of you think, success is a journey and not a destination. Some times we get lost, but then there are friends, relatives who help us in reaching where we want to go.

Like in the movie WaterWorld, people are searching Land, but when they get it, some stay there and some, like our Hero, move on...to help others find them.

I think we have been brainwashed on Success as a concept right from our childhood by our parents---You should study in good school, get good marks, get a good job, get a good looking wife, make loads of money and kids- oh no i can exlude this, phew....so much for success...

BTW, where do you fit in is left for you to ponder...Well this is my first blog and I wrote this in moment of inspiration or madness...I am not sure if u got blogged or bugged reading this...do let me know at pranxter'at'gmail'dot'com

Bye for now and take care, Prasanna

Yep right Pressi...Success is a journey and not a destination..but it's hard for people to realize that...I have quite a lot of idiots around me who think that having got a job here itself is their success...they are happy with their salary and their job profile and say they have no intention of moving out for the next 2-3 years even if the sal does not increase and the profile does not change....what can you say about such fools...

Anyway, nice topic...we can agree and disagree and argue for ages about this topic...You've made a start..keep it going...All the best.

Nice to read your thoughts. Success and failure are two sides of the same coin. When we are successful, we have also failed elsewhere. When we lose something, we also get something else. We all are still in a jaatre....

===============
"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Globa| Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth
before they can be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for
lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number
of other benefits. Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and
the lack of oils and sap found in the wood make it resistant to forest fire,
ensuring higher returns on investments.
T
he wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140
Million with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With
anticipated growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during
its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153
Million in revenues. As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree
continues to grow around the world EGTY believes additional multi-million
dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of
250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business
owners in New Zealand, Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular
and profitable fast growing infant tree plants. Inquiries from the governments of
Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
