i am waiting here for longgggggg,
sitting aimlessly staring at the world go by,
trying to think about our past memories,
how we had good times.
but lord can i have one more chance
just one more chance,
only one more chance.
holding our hands,
your body almost touching mine,
now i know i can live on my own,
& satisfy my all kinds of desires,
but the Only desire which i ever doubt to come to me is "YOU"
ohh lord!!! can i have one more chance
just one more chance
only one more chance.
i am still waiting for all those glorious days to return to me,
i wonder if they ever would,
but i really wish if it could
ohh lord!!!can i have one more chance
just one more chance
only one more chance.
i have always tried to justify it was you who needed me,
but hey girl!!!things are not the same now,
but why have u left me alone in this world full of sorrows and desires,
without a reason,
ohhh lord can i have one more chance
just one more chance
only one more chance.
my friends keep telling me to forget you,
but how can i for get you so easily?
do u really feel the pain coming out from me?
ohh lord can i have one more chance
just one more chance
only one more chanceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Even flow, thoughts arrive like butterflies
Oh, he don't know, so he chases them away
Someday yet, he'll begin his life again
Life again, life again..........

Fact #1
By 1915 scenery,props and costumes built for one movie were being stored for later use on another.The departmental system in the studios required greater organisation and communication between departments,and because the most complex, expensive and labour-intensive areas were related to construction, the art director became the logical choice to  administer much of the production process.

Fact # 2
Hitchcock, who started as an Art director, liked to say his movies were finished before they were even made,before the cinematographer or editor touched a piece of the film.He rarely looked through the camera viewfinder on the set,since it was merely a photographic equivalent of a storyboard that had been finalised earlier.

Film companies were not at all interested in Star Wars before it was released so much so that it was at one stage going to be broadcast on childrens TV as a mini series.

Fact #4
300,000 extras appeared in the funeral sequence. About 200,000 were volunteers and 94,560 were paid a small fee (under contract). The sequence was filmed on 31st Jan 1981, the 33rd anniversary of Gandhi's funeral. 11 crews shot over 20,000 feet of film, which was pared down to 125 seconds in the final release.

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?
An unemployed man goes to try for a job with Microsoft as a cleaner.The manager there arranges for an aptitude test (Section: Floors,sweeping of Furniture)After the test, the manager says: You will be appointed on the scale of $30 per day. Let me have your e-mail address, so that I can send you a form to complete and advise you where to report for work on your first day.Taken aback, the unemployed man protests that he is neither in possession of a computer nor of an e-mail address. To this the MS manager replies:Well,then, that really means that you virtually don't exist and can therefore hardly expect to be employed.
Stunned, the man leaves. Not knowing where to turn and only having about $10 left, he decides to buy a 10kg box of tomatoes at the supermarket.Within less than 2 hours, he sells the tomatoes singly at 100% profit.Repeating the process several times more that day, he ends up with
almost $100 before going to sleep that night. And thus it dawns on the man that he could quite easily make a living selling tomatoes.Getting up early and earlier every day and going to bed later and later,he multiplies his hoard of profits in quite a short time. Not too long thereafter, he acquires a cart to transport several dozen boxes of tomatoes,only to have to trade it in again shortly afterwards on a pick-up truck.By the end of the first year, he is the owner of a fleet of pick-up trucks and manages a staff of several hundred former unemployed people, all selling tomatoes.Considering the future of his wife and children, he decides to buy some life insurance. Calling an insurance adviser, he picks an insurance plan to fit his new circumstances. At the end of the telephone conversation, the
adviser asks him for his e-mail address in order that he might forward the documentation.When the man replies that he has no e-mail, the adviser is stunned:What,you don't even have e-mail? How on earth have you managed to amass such wealth without the Internet, e-mail and e-commerce? Just imagine where you would have been by now, if you had been connected from the very start!After a moment's silence, the tomato millionaire replied: Sure! I would have been a cleaner at Microsoft!
Morals of the story:
1: The Internet, e-mail and e-commerce do not need to rule your life.
2: Get e-mail, if you want to be a cleaner at Microsoft.
3: If you don't have e-mail, but work hard, you can still become a millionaire.
4: Seeing that you got this story via e-mail, you're probably closer to becoming a cleaner than you are to
becoming a millionaire.
5: If you do have a computer and e-mail, you're already being taken to the cleaners by Microsoft.
