think over it

A man came home from work late, tired and irritated to
find his 5-year-old son waiting for him at the door

Son:"Daddy, may I ask you a question"

Daddy:"Yeah sure, what it is?"

Son:"Dad, how much do you make an hour"

Daddy: "That's none of your business. Why do you ask
such a thing?"

that man said angrily

Son:"I just want to know. Please tell me, how much
do you make an hour?"

Daddy: "I make Rs. 500 an hour"

"Oh", the little boy replied, with his head down.

Looking up, he said, "Dad, may I please borrow Rs.

The father was furious, "if the only reason you asked
that is so you can borrow some money to buy a silly
toy or other nonsense, then march yourself to your
room and go to bed. Think why you are being so
selfish. I work hard everyday for such this childish

behavior" The little boy quietly went to his room and
shut the door.

The man sat down and started to get even angrier about
the! Little boy's questions.

How dare he ask such questions only to get some money?

After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down,
and started to think "May be there was something he
really needed to buy
with that Rs. 300 and he really didn't ask for money
very often!"
The man went to the door of little boy's room and
opened the door.
"Are you asleep, son?" He asked.
"No daddy, I'm awake," replied the boy.

"I've been thinking, may be I was too hard on you
earlier", said

The man, "It's been a long day and I took out my
aggravation on you. Here's the Rs. 300 you asked for"
The little boy sat straight up, smiling "oh thank you
dad!" He yelled.
Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled some
crippled up notes.
The man, seeing that the boy already had money,
started to get angry again.

The little boy slowly counted out his money, and then
looked up at his father.

"Why do you want money if you already had! some?" the
father grumbled.

"Because I didn't have enough, but now I do," the
little boy replied.

"Daddy I have Rs. 500 now. Can I buy an hour of your
time? Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to
have dinner with you"

It's just a short reminder to all of you working so
hard in life. We should not let time slip through our
fingers without having spent some time with those who
really matter to us, those close to our hearts. If we
die tomorrow, the company that we are working
for could easily replace us in a matter of days. But
the family & friends we leave behind will feel the
loss for the rest of their lives. And come to think of
it, we pour ourselves more into work than to our
family. An unwise investment indeed!

Take care always and rank ur priorities right

JUIT V/S JIITU - Thank God I am a JUITian...

I thought I'll write about this topic after JIIT opens up for next semester but i guess i have seen all the shades of JIIT already so i can very well show you the difference between the two institutes... Although both of them are backed by the same great Jaypee group but only JUIT represents the true greatness of this group... Beautiful surroundings, awesome building,great learning atmosphere and above all great people...  Some of JUITians will disagree with me on several points but guys trust me no one knows JUIT better than me and come and spend a month here in JIIT you yourself will feel the difference...  I completed my graduation from Jaypee university of information technology waknaghat,solan {H.P}, A place which has given me so many great memories,some awesome friends, i met with some really nice and loving people... Even the faculty in JUIT is quite caring...  Its because of  HCL's Japanese language training that brought me to JIIT a sister institute of JUIT located in

Time to say goodbye, but to whom???

It’s been more than 4 years that I have spent in this place called JUIT… A place I was sure I wanted to get in when I saw the prospectus and luckily I got admission here… Life was full of ups and downs rather more down’s but at the end of it all I have a job in my hand which is enough for me to ignore those bad times… There a few things I have always been proud of like my association with almost all the clubs and activities especially technical and hospitality… besides the fact that except for my academics I was good at making things happen and that majorly because of my domain, everyone yes everyone in JUIT knows me… But now when its time to say goodbye to this great university, things are no more the same and not even the feeling… 4-5 months back when it was time for 2008 regular batch to leave it was altogether a different feeling even that time I felt as if I am also about to go but this time when we have just 20 more days here I am not getting that feeling. We got our farewell, sc
