Let's take World Water Day seriously too!

There's enough hype created for several special days like Valentine's Day, Women's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day etc. Greeting cards, gift items, discounts on shopping, dining and hotels create the mood for these occasions days in advance. We all know it's marketing gimmick  but don't we give in to the temptation? But when it comes to days marked for really important occasions, we are either unaware or don't bother.

Take for instance March 22, 2010. How many of you were aware that today is World Water Day?
But then, how would you know since you did not see Archies stores displaying Save Water cards and gifts during the weekend. You did not see any television ad on saving water. And neither did you have the front page of today's newspaper complete with a creative ad on the same!

I'd admit that I had no idea that today is World Water Day until I noticed the page 15 of The Times Of India dedicated to the Day. I think on Valentine's Day they have 2-3 pages of messages, in addition to various V-Day articles and ads, right?

Anyways, now that we know that today is World Water Day, let's do our bit in saving water today and always. A few days ago I had written some funny tips on saving water. But on a serious note, we all are well aware what all has to be done and it's about time we act really seriously.

2 pointers that we might have missed:
  1. Does our housemaid keep the tap water running all the while she's washing utensils / clothes?
  2. Are we digging a borewell without proper consultation / permission?
By the way UN-Water is dedicating World Water Day 2010 to the theme of water quality, reflecting its importance alongside quantity of the resource in water management. Read more here.

Here's hoping we all really contribute in saving water.

10 Behinds behind every successful woman

I've had my views on the quote "Behind every successful man is a woman."
I thought I'd create a few for women too. Here we go!
  1. Behind every successful woman is her successful, boastful female friend.
  2. Behind every successful woman is the increasing cost of cosmetics (or costmetics). 
  3. Behind every successful woman is her beauty.
  4. Behind every successful woman is sour relationship / divorce.
  5. Behind every successful woman is her mom pestering her to get married soon.
  6. Behind every successful woman is her ex-boyfriend's current and rich girlfriend.
  7. Behind every successful woman is competition by men.
  8. Behind every successful woman is her shopaholic nature.
  9. Behind every successful woman is her desire to prove "women are better than men".
  10. Behind every successful woman is a man who truly, madly, deeply loves her (on a serious note).

10 behinds behind every successful man

"Behind every successful man is a woman."

I came across this quote once again today and thought it's about time we look at it again. So I'm getting back to my favorite hobby - creating quotable quotes / funny versions of quotes. Here are my versions of the quote that might be applicable today:
  1. Behind every successful man is his insecure boss. 
  2. Behind every successful man is a man (his gay partner).
  3. Behind every successful man is his woman's male friend he's jealous of.
  4. Behind every successful man is his team who actually works while he takes away the credit.
  5. Behind every successful man is his age.
  6. Behind every successful man is his home loan. 
  7. Behind every successful man is sheer chance.
  8. Behind every successful man is competition.
  9. Behind every successful man is media.
  10. Behind every successful man is a woman who'd have otherwise been successful if he had been behind her ;)
Now should I replace "every successful man" with "many successful men"? (in the above sentences of course ;))
