On Sneezing-a religious directive.

Standard

Once I was walking on a foot path in Delhi India and I sneezed, across the road there was a gentleman who shouted. 'God bless you' and I got reminded of my religious duty. In fact one gets relieved on sneezing and the other person blesses him.

It is our religious duty to say 'Thank God' on sneezing, when the other person near him says, 'God bless you' and he in return says, 'May God guide you on the right path'.

Where I Go for News- Radio, Newspaper or TV

Standard

It is said: 'No news is good news'. I was told that in England the front page of a newspaper does not carry the bad news as it adversely affects the psychology of the public. An elderly man was asked about his health by his friend and his reply was, "How can you expect me to keep a good health when I see a bad news on the front page of the daily paper as a break fast news."

I prefer radio news, next I see headlines in the newspaper and read the details that I find of my interest.The Tv news is my last preference.
