Why do people shout when they are angry?


A Hindu saint who was visiting river Ganges to take a bath found a group of family members on the banks, shouting in anger at each other. 
He turned to his disciples, smiled and asked, 'Why do people shout at each other when they are angry?' 
 The followers thought for a while. 
 Then one of them said, 'Because we lose our peacefulness, we shout.'
'But, why should you shout when the other person is just next to you? You can as well tell him what you have to say in a soft manner.' asked the saint.
 Followers gave some other answers but none satisfied the other followers. Finally, the saint explained,'When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot.
 The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other to cover that great distance.
They don't shout at each other but talk softly, Because their hearts are very close. 
The distance between them is either non-existent or very small...'
 They do not speak, they only whisper and they get even closer to each other in their love. Finally, they even need not whisper, they only look at each other and that's all.
 That is how close two people are when they love each other.'

The Priveleged Politician!

 Absolutely Bang On-----------------------
Late Nani Palkhiwala, the eminent Indian lawyer, wrote on 16 Jan1984. 
"The picture that emerges is that of a great country in a state of
moral decay. The immediate future seems to belong to the doomsayers rather than to cheer mongers. We suffer from a fatty degeneration of conscience, and
the malady seems to be not only persistent but prone to aggravation. The life style of too many politicians and businessmen bears eloquent testimony to the truth of dictum that the single minded pursuit of money impoverishes the mind, shrivels the imagination and desiccates the heart.
The tricolour fluttering all over the country is black, red and scarlet -
black money, red tape and scarlet corruption."
My dog sleeps about 20 hours a day
He has his food prepared for him
He can eat whenever he wants, 24/7/365.
His meals are provided at no cost to him.
By the way he does not need to pay for medical insurance He visits the doctor once a year for his checkup, and again during the year if any medical needs arise. For this he pays nothing, and nothing is required of him.
He lives in a nice neighborhood in a house that is much larger than he needs, but he is not required to do any upkeep. If he makes a mess, someone else cleans it up.
He has his choice of luxurious places to sleep. He receives these
accommodations absolutely free.
He is living like a King, and has absolutely no expenses whatsoever. All of his costs are picked up by others who go out and earn a living every day. I
was just thinking about all this, and suddenly it hit me like a brick in the head....... 
My dog is like the Indian POLITICIAN 
The difference is, he is honest & grateful for what he gets.

Spanish shark delivers 10 babies with the help of a man!

Stranger than fiction. 
A man in Spain has done a good deed not many can boast of;  he helped a shark give birth to a total of ten babies on a local beach.
Antonio Calvillo was driving to work when he saw something thrashing around on the beach in Fuengirola in southern Spain.
"I thought it was a stranded dolphin but when I made my way over,I realized it was a (Blue) shark", he said.He called emergency services and then decided to try and drag the animal out to sea by the tail because it seemed tired,but not injured or hurt.  A married couple who passed by also offered to help him.

Strangely, while (the shark) was thrashing about, they noticed a little tail coming out of its stomach.  When the rescuers realized the animal was giving birth,Calvillo applied pressure to its stomach. He did so until the creature had given birth to around ten babies.  The little sharks then swam back towards the sea.

"My first thought was that if something happens to the mother at least the babies will live", Calvillo said.
Two guards then helped drag the exhausted shark back into the water.The mother shark then recovered enough to be able to swim out to sea unaided.

Moral of the story from sharks' view point:
Let's be kind to the human beings and give them a better deal in the future!
