Cheapest VoIP Provider to India

Betamax, the company behind low cost voip services such as VoipDiscount has now come out with another offering Actionvoip. While Actionvoip does not provide free calls to any destination, it does provide the cheapest rate to call up Indian landlines (46 paise / minute) and mobiles (66 paise / minute). This is so far the cheapest rates I have ever come across for calling Indian phones.

What Does A Woman Want

Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch of a
neighbouring kingdom. The monarch could have killed him but was moved
by Arthur's youth and ideals. So, the monarch offered him his freedom,
as long as he could answer a very difficult question. Arthur would
have a year to figure out the answer and, If after a year, he still
had no answer, he would be put to death. The question was: What do
women really want?

young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query. But, since it was better

The Meaning of Rahul

Rahul, a popular male name in India, has a variety of meanings. The earliest meaning found in the Upanishads is "conqueror of all miseries". Later use of the word is attributed to the Lord Buddha , who named his son Rahul as he felt that family ties could be an obstacle in the path to renunciation and nirvana. Lord Buddha uttered Rahul when he first saw his son and gave a new meaning "relationship" and "bondage" to this name. Rahul means Moon, Able/efficient in Sanskrit and Pali.Rahul also means "Traveler" in Arabic.

Sardarji Barah Baj Gaye

Ever wondered why people say "Sardarji Barah Baj gaye"? Below is a personal experience by someone:

I was standing at jalandhar station when my attention went towards a Sikh youth standing near me wearing a Black turban having a long beard and wearing a kirpan over his shirt looking similar to a terrorist.

After a while, one local train arrived, which was totally packed. The Sikh youth tried to alight the train but failed to do so. Just then a voice was heard from the back coach 'Sardarji Barah Baj gaye' (Sir it's 12 o'clock!)


Why Kashmir Is Not A Dangerous Flashpoint For World War III

War 3 ! This situation could really happen :-)

USSR was such that if USA launched a Nuke-loaded
missile, USSR's satellites were capable of nforming
USSR army in 3 seconds, and in less than 45 seconds
USSR would also launch its counter-missile. US knew
that, and therefore, never attempted to launch one.

Recent studies commissioned by US DOD included one
likely scenario on a nuclear war between India and



Cold Winter

It was autumn, and the Indians on the remote reservation asked their new
Chief if the winter was going to be cold or mild. Since he was an Indian
Chief in a modern society, he had never been taught the old secrets, and
when he looked at the sky, he couldn't tell what the weather was going
to be.

Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he replied to his tribe that the
winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the village
should collect wood to be prepared.

But also being a practical leader, after several days he got an idea.He
