Faith....Have Some?

Theres a nice article on rediff by rajeev srinivasan, well, nice is a subjective view, and i think, very debatable....have you noticed how lots of pro-hindutva articles are popping up on rediff..hmmmmmit seems a lot of 'historians' are claiming now that since 'ram' is more of myth than reality, (we have no archaeological proof) why should his birthplace have any significance? But most of religion is based on faith, right?If anyone is in a charity mood, read this article. The concept is simple but effective.Cant bring myself to write more, so will share a good fwd with you guys...
Between 18 and 20 a woman is like Africa, half discovered, half wild, naturally beautiful with fertile deltas.Between 21 and 30 a woman is like America, well developed and open to trade especially for someone with cash.Between 31 and 35 she is like India, very hot, relaxed and convinced of her own beauty.Between 36 and 40 a woman is like France. Gently aging but still a warm and a desirable place to visit.Between 41 and 50 she is like Yugoslavia, lost the war haunted by past mistakes. Massive reconstruction is now necessary.Between 51 and 60, she is like Russia, very wide and borders ! are unpatrolled. The frigid climate keeps people away.Between 61 and 70, a woman is like Mongolia, with a glorious and all conquering past but alas, no future.After 70, they become Afghanistan. Most everyone knows where it is, but no one wants to go there.
Between 15 and 70 a man is like Iraq - ruled by a dick!!!
and now a lil manuscrypts trivia
The wealthy had slate floors that would get slippery in the winter when wet, so they spread thresh (straw) on the floor to help keep their footing. As the winter wore on, they kept adding more thresh until when you opened the door it would all start slipping outside. A piece of wood was placed in the entranceway. Hence the saying a "thresh hold."
