*Friday is world cancer day, I'd appreciate it if you will forward this requests. A small request.. Just one line. All you are asked to do is keep this circulating, even if it's only to one more person. In memory of anyone you know who has been struck down by cancer or is still living with it.*
*A Candle Loses Nothing by Lighting Another Candle.. * *Please Keep This Candle Going*
*!!! Read carefully the surprising benefits of lemon !!!*
Lemon (Citrus) is a miraculous product to kill cancer cells. It is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy. Why do we not know about that? Because there are laboratories interested in making a synthetic version that will bring them huge profits.
You can now help a friend in need by letting him/her know that lemon juice is beneficial in reverting the disease. Its taste is pleasant and it does not produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy. How many people will die while this closely guarded secret is kept, so as not to jeopardize the beneficial multimillionaires large corporations? As you know, the lemon tree is known for its varieties of lemons and limes. You can eat the fruit in different ways: you can eat the pulp, juice press, prepare drinks, sorbets, pastries, etc... It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumors. This plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types. Some say it is very useful in all variants of cancer. It is considered also as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood pressure which is too high & an antidepressant, combats stress and nervous disorders. The source of this information is fascinating: it comes from one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world, says that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, the extracts revealed that: It destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas ... The compounds of this tree showed 10,000 times better than the product Adriamycin, a drug normally used chemotherapeutic in the world, slowing the growth of cancer cells. And what is even more astonishing: this type of therapy with lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and it does not affect healthy cells.
*!!! Spread the word!!!*

Read this one in a forwarded message and really enjoyed it…
Barbara Walters of Television’s 20/20 did a story on gender roles in Kabul, Afghanistan several years before the Afghan conflict. She noted that women customarily walked five paces behind their husbands.
She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind their husbands.
From Miss Walters’ vantage point, despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime, the women now seem to walk even further back behind their husbands, and are even happy to maintain the old custom.
Miss Walters approached one of the Afghani women and asked, ‘Why do you now seem happy with an old custom that you once tried so desperately to change?’
The woman looked Miss Walters straight in the eyes, and without hesitation said, ‘Land Mines.’
Moral of the story is … (no matter where you go)
… BEHIND EVERY MAN, THERE’S A SMART WOMAN

Sharing it with good friends of course!
Last Saturday, the three of us managed to meet up for a long awaited chat session and lunch at one of Kolkata’s oldest restaurants, Peter Cat. Many giggles, yummy steaks, shreiks and disapproving glances from fellow diners later, we realized we were just in time for a matinee show of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.
Fuelled with visions of a ripped Hrithik, curly haired Farhan and Abhay’s dimples, we zipped across to New Market to catch the 3 o’clock show at the Roxy. On the way, we encountered a good natured (I suppose) cabbie who seemed terribly amused by us on the whole and insisted on laughing aloud at everything we said (none of which was of course, addressed to him!).
Anyway, we managed to grab our seats just as the film was beginning. Now the Roxy had its heydays in the 70’s and 80’s when it was THE place to host premiere parties at and what not. In its present seedy state, it doesn’t compare favorably to the super-plush multiplexes but it does have a certain old-world charm. The seats are the creaky wooden variety with moth eaten upholstery. There are still a few art-deco murals here and there and some old framed posters. The classy curved wooden bar now stocks just chips and pop corn. The old soda fountain lies forgotten. The hall retained the old creamy marble floors at some places and sported crass mosaic tiles at others. In fact during the interval break, we were startled to discover bamboo scaffolding on a part of the ceiling just above our heads!
The movie was entertaining, but that was about it. However, when you have friends to joke and comment about the excesses on screen, you don’t really need Oscar-winning material! Oh and on top of that, we managed to catch some super cheesy trailers of Thai (yes Thai!) movies dubbed into Hindi (called Maaro Ya Maro!) and some local production starring B-grade Hollywood actors about a father looking for a miraculous cure for cancer for his ailing son, in the middle of …(wait for it)… the Sunderbans!
At the end of it all, of course it was time for ice cream!! We hopped over to a small café at Shreeram Arcade, plopped ourselves on the spindly wooden and steel chairs, and ordered from a dog-eared list of misspelled goodies. As we waited, the skies outside changed to a lively canvas of pink, purple, gold and dark blue. Our colorful sundaes arrived in tall glasses with bits of jelly, candied fruit, syrup and dollops of ice cream!
