Census, the humour is on

Once in a remote village, there was only one person named Birkhe, who is literate and knows how to read and write. During the census, the govt recruited Birkhe to collect the data from the village. The Chief District Officer teaches him what to ask from the individual houses and fill in the census form. The CDO told him to ask 'Are you married?' If yes, then tick 'married' and vice versa in the form and ask 'How many children you have? and so on...

Then the person went to the village with census form.

Birkhe knocked on a door of a house. A young lady appeared. He said that he was collecting data for census for the government. And asked the lady, 'Are you married?'. The lady replied 'No'. Then he filled the census form. And then he asked 'How many children you have?'. Then the lady replied with a slap in his face.
In the evening Birke returned to the office and said to the CDO that the lady from the village slapped him in his face. Then he asked what did you ask her? Birkhe said First I asked her 'Are you married?, She said 'No'. Then I asked her how many children you have? and she then slapped me.
Then CDO said you should  have asked first 'How many children you have?'

Then next day Birkhe again went for his job. He knocked on another house where an old lady opened the door. He said that he was collecting data for census for the government. And asked the old lady, 'How many children you have? She replied she had six children. Then he asked 'Are you married?" Then she replied with a slap in his face.

Morale: Just learning how to read and write cannot make you successful in life. Doing what you want and making it your work can make you successful. There are so many people who are literate and educated but unemployment is increasing.

The Science behind jokes.

You need to laugh to be healthy the scientific reason is explained in my previous post here. So, why not create a reason to make us healthy. Jokes are the best tool to make you laugh because it is short and meaningful that even the busiest person can have time to read it. “It is better to tell a joke to a patient every four hour and make him/her laugh than to give antibiotic every four hour.” ~Dr. Yogi Vikashananda

 Following two jokes are more laughable when its read in Nepali cause my translations may not be that much comical.

रोगीहरुले कुरा नबुझ्दा डाक्टर को आफ्नै सम्स्या हुन्छ । बिरामीहरुले डाक्टरलाई बिरामी पारिदिन्छ । डाक्टरकहाँ जाउ अनि रोगीहरुले के के कुरा सोध्छन भने - स-सना कुरा सोध्छन् । डाक्टरसाहब यो खान हुन्छ ?  ए हुन्छ बाबा यो बाहेक सबै खान हुन्छ । यो हुन्छ त त्यो हुन्छ त भनेर सोध्छन् बा । अनि डाक्टर को जवाफ के हुन्छ त भन्नाले - यो पनि खान हुन्छ भाई यो पनि खान हुन्छ बैनी तर मेरो दिमाग खान हुँदैन यार ।  
Patient: Doctor can I eat this?
Doctor: Yes you can eat that.
Patient: Can I eat that?
Doctor: Yes brother you can eat this. Yes sister you can eat that. You can eat all things except my brain.
एउटा श्रीमन् र श्रीमती को कहानी, जे हुँदा नि 'नत्र' भन्ने । भर्खर बिहे गरेर ल्याएको ।
Husband: हे राम्ररी चाँही  आइरन लगा मेरो लुगामा नत्र भन्छन् बा ।
Wife (thinking) : भर्खर भर्खर बिहे हुँदा त लाईदिने के गर्ने डराए पनि  ।
Husband: हे राम्ररी चाँही  मासु पका  नत्र भन्छन् बा।
Wife (thinking): एक दिन त श्रीमतिलाई साह्रै झोँक चलेछ किन भने हनिमून पनि सकी सकेको थियो, अब हनिमून सम्म हनिमून के भाड्नु भनेर ठीक-ठिकै गरिदिन्थे । त्यस्पछी त हनिमून गैसकेपछी त हनी नाइत् (honey night), हनी दार्क्नेस (honey darkness) मात्रै थियो ।
 तर दार्क्नेस (darkness)मा पनि हनी चाँही गुलियै (sweet) हुन्छ यो कुरा याद राख्नु  । 
त्यस्कारण हनिमून सकी सकेको हुँदा उन्ले फुर्ती निकाले ।
Husband: हे तातो पनि उमाल्, म तातो पानी बाटै नुहाउनु पर्छ नत्र भन्छ ।
Wife: स्राहै रिस उठ्छ श्रीमती लाई: के नत्र-नत्र जहिले पनि नत्र-नत्र । के गर्नु हुन्छ तपाईंले ? नत्र के ?
Husband: नत्र चिसो पानीले नुहाउँला ।

 (translation isn't that much amusing so this best for Nepali friends.)

This is a incident between a husband and a wife.
Background: Both are newly arrange married. And husband have a habit of saying 'otherwise' which the wife was unfamiliar with.
Husband: Iron my clothes correctly, otherwise!
Wife (thinking): Just recently being married so with some fear she did it as he told her.
Husband: Cook the meat tastefully, otherwise!
Wife (thinking): One day, the wife became very much angry, because in the initial days she didn't want to destroy her honeymoon. But now the honeymoon is over and only honey night and honey darkness remains. But always remember the taste of honey is always sweet, even in darkness. So, the honeymoon is over and now she have some courage to fight back.
One day husband again commands her wife: Heat the water, I've to bath with the hot water. Otherwise!
Wife: She became very much angry and replied; What always otherwise-otherwise. Otherwise what will you do?
Husband: Otherwise I'll bath with cold water.

Morale: अतह कुनै कुनै भाषा बुझ्नुपर्छ क्या ।त्यो नत्र त्यत्रो खतर्नाक त थिएन नि ।
We have to understand some languages, gestures. The meaning of otherwise was not that much life threatening and harmful in the above story/joke.

Laugh heartedly and activate endorphin hormones to be healthy and happy.

Marriage; important or urgent?

This one is another incident of a Dr. Yogi Vikashananda. He conducts the classes of super learning and the leader of Manokranti movement in Nepal. 
Here is what he says;
Dr. Yogi Vikashananda: I've seen small children showing wisdom and creativity than the older ones in the classes of super learning. In one super learning class there are people of different age groups from 60 year old campus chief to 12-year old 8th grade school children. In one of the class I was asking them "What do you think marriage is, is it important or is it urgent?" Some of the older people said it is urgent while most of the older people said it is important.
But one 12 year old child was watching at my face with great amazement and replied to me: Sir isn't it entertainment?

More spiritual, ironical and unconventional message carrying jokes are to be published. So, stay connected.

Positive Thinking

This incident is one of the moment of Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh's life.
Once one Sanyasin(that's what Osho calls his disciple) wearing a locket of Rajneesh (Osho) was taking alcohol in a hotel (bhatti). Another disciple saw this and became very much sad thinking that the disciple with the company of such great enlightened guru is drinking alcohol. Then he decided that whether the Master/Guru's teaching is wrong or the Disciple is wrong. He couldn't put it to himself so he finally decided to ask Osho about it. 
Then he asked.
Disciple: Bhagwan I've seen with this physical(भौतिक) eye, that one of your disciple is drinking (physical/भौतिक) alcohol in the bar/(भत्ति). With all of your great teachings and knowledge that disciple is taking the help of alcohol to destroy his life. So, I doubt your teachings or I'm curious to know what's wrong with that disciple?

With this question Osho Rajneesh became happy and smiled and he replied.

Osho: Brother, that's the difference between you and me. You view everything with negativity, with negative perspective. I see everything with positive perspective. You view even positive things with negative perspective that's why you are disciple. I see every negative thing with positive perspective that's why I am Guru. If one of my disciple is drinking alcohol in bar, that's not my humiliation; It is my greatness. 
You regard it as my humiliation but I regard it as greatness because even a person who is nonsense, rubbish, drunkard and foolish listens to my discourse (प्रवचन) and can be a disciple (चेला) of me this is a example of greatest achievement of my teachings.

Morale: If a person who have not reformed even with the company of Osho, how could he have destroyed himself if he got the company of bad people. 
जो मान्छे ओशो जस्ता सन्तको सङ्गत्ले त सुध्रेन त्यो मान्छे अरु नरम्रा मान्छे को सँगत मा परेको भए कती बिगृन्थ्यो होला त ?

How to install Bino, 3D Video Player on Ubuntu 12.04 and

Bino is a stereoscopic or 3D video player available for all platforms including GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, FreeBSD and Windows Operating Systems. For Windows users there are many commercial video players available including Cyberlink Power DVD 12. You can also use free NVIDIA 3D video player if your computer have a compatible NVIDIA Graphics Card with Nvidia 3D vision feature.

Commercial softwares are not available for Linux.
So, I think there is no reason not to using Linux just because you have difficulty in watching 3D movies. Linux is not limiting you to watch 3D movies. 

'Bino' (Windows, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, Linux) is free software, open source licensed under the terms of the GNU GPL version 3 or later with two special features:
- Support for stereoscopic or 3D videos, with a wide variety of input and output formats.
- Support for multi-display video, e.g. for powerwalls, Virtual Reality installations and other multi-projector setups.
Supported input formats (modern formats can be autodetected):
  • Monoscopic (2D) video
  • Left and right view in separate video streams and/or files
  • Left and right view side by side (optionally with half width)
  • Left and right view on top of each other (optionally with half height)
  • Left and right view in alternating rows
Supported output formats:
  • Anaglyph red-cyan glasses (this works with every display)
  • Bino uses the high-quality Dubois method to produce anaglyph images. This gives far better results than the usual full-color and half-color methods.
  • Left and right view side by side (used by some 3D displays)
  • Left and right view on top of each other (used by some 3D displays)
  • Left and right view in alternating rows or columns (used by some 3D displays)
  • OpenGL quad-buffered stereo (only available with some graphics cards)

And here is exactly how you install Bino under Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

First of all open terminal and type  
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:zeppelinlg/bino (use copy and paste)
Then press ENTER to add the repository
Now you need to update your repository by running following command
sudo apt-get update
Finally you can install bino by running following command from the terminal
sudo apt-get install bino
And you are done. 

For windows you can simply click the following link to download the program.
Why pay for commercial software when there is opensource to do the same.

Here is the screenshot of bino 1.4. playing 'Transformers, Dark of the Moon 3D' on my computer with Ubuntu 12.04.
You do need (left)Red + Cyan(right) glasses to watch 3D movies on non-3d display. If you have a 3D display then you'll have the required glasses when you buy one.

Here are few features of Ubuntu.
It's perfect OS for a server.
It's best for a desktop.
It is free and Open source.
It is free from (windows) viruses, the headache for most users.
It's interface is easy, elegant and beautiful.
It works faster than windows.
It doesn't slowdown over time.
