[] ::::: Mobile info.....VERY VERY USEFUL


Very informative mail for you, please don't forget to forward.

Would you like to know if your mobile is original or not ?????

Press the following on your mobile
*#06# and the-international mobile equipment identity number appears. Then check the 7th and 8th numbers:


7 th
8 th
Phone serial no.

IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are 02 or 20 this means your cell phone was assembled in Emirates which is very Bad quality

IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are
08 or 80 this means your cell phone was manufactured in Germany which is fair quality

IF the Seventh & Eighth digits are
01 or 10 this means your cell phone was manufactured in Finland which is very Good

There are a few things that can be done in times of grave emergencies.

Your mobile phone can actually be a life saver or an  emergency tool for
survival. Check out the things that you can do with it: -

(1 )


The Emergency Number worldwide for **Mobile** is 112 ..* If you find
yourself out of coverage area of your mobile network and there is an
emergency, dial
112 and the mobile will search any existing network to
establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked.
**Try it out.**


Have you locked your keys in the car? Does you car have remote keys?

 This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone:
If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call
someone at home on their cell phone from your cell phone.
Hold your cell phone about a   foot from your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock.

Saves someone from having to drive your keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other 'remote' for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk).
Editor's Note:
*It works fine! We tried it out and it unlocked our car over a cell phone!'*


Hidden Battery power

 Imagine your cell battery is very low , you are expecting an important call
and you don't have a charger. Nokia instrument comes with a reserve
To activate, press the keys
*3370# Your cell will restart with
this reserve and the instrument will show a
50% increase in battery. This
reserve will get charged when you charge your cell next time.


How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?

To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following digits on your phone:
* # 0 6 #

A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. when your phone get stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless.
You probably won't get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.

Re: [] Re: Muslim wanted dead or alive


Dear Karan & Jeevan,

Both of you have points, but deserves sensitive debate for adding fun with intelligence. The more you avoid emotions the better it is.

Would a really beautiful woman ever claim she is !
A man with wisdom will never claim that he knows ( rather he says what he doesn't know ) !
Highly fragrant flower wouldn't mind blossoming at night !
A genuinely spiritual individual will never clamor about any God or his/her virtues .... because anyone meeting that person can feel and experience the godliness within him/her.

When you are insecure and do not trust in yourself you will try to affiliate with some god / spiritual power and 'pretend ' you are better ( a kind of ego defense )
I wish a comparative religious study, delivered in a completely unbiased manner was available to thinking young minds.

Regards to all.

For your ignorant brain: F.Y.I: Jesus Died 2012 years ago and the Bible written 5000 years ago?
Your so called bible is created by MEN and the hatred is seeded from that time(as per your version).
Every religious leaders are selfish and enjoy life without sweating (hard work) that is why these killings continue in the name of religion.
Some wise MEN created "GOD" to create Fear which will ensure reduction of criminal activities. But the followers became cruked and mean and then only the violance stated.
Believe in your self and help others around you. You don't have to practice any religion.

Re: [] Is your car stolen? Pray to God the police never find it


Dear friends, What is said about the Mumbai police is correct.In my sonscase one guy cheated him, I personally went to the police station near to VictoriaTerminus and they just released the culprit with in minutes after he was taken into custody on our complaint because ofhis influence.In the cyber offence you could have used the provisions of RTI and could have gathered the details for further follow up though initial responses may deter you from from your motive. in the car theft in Kerala also our "policy" in giving a certificate to the effect that the car is not traceable in the near future is three months . Because there is scope for misusing the provision if the police give a certificate that it is un-traceable. As a police officer who served for 28 years the delay in procuring a car which is already in the custody of the police is un pardonable.You could have approached the court directly to give your car for safe custody with anundertaken that the car will be produced as and when demanded by thecourt.Most probably the police will discard the abovecase and submit a report to the court that the above case may be treatedas Un-Detected. I will also like to tell you a naked fact that in Kerala as well as in other parts of our country the investigation of theft cases are the same ie: it ends up with one day investigation -writing a mahazar,panchnama, asking some persons (questioning witnesses in police parlance) and disposes the file as it is for months together and to escape from Superior Officers visiting remarks only Armchair case diaries will be written( with out moving out of the office)and a copy will be send to the highier ups to escape probabedisciplinary action.Of course that officer-investigating officer- will claim TA for the the places he often showd visited in the Case Diary where continuos investigation is ordered for seven days,while "conducting investigation".The superior officer who use to write remarks on the above case (which is mandatory on his part every month)file also knows that that is what he alsodid as a sub Inspector or Inspector in such cases. if at all some case are detected that may be effort of some committed constables and very few Officers with grit. For proving such cases they often keep suspects for weeks together and use all sorts of third degree methods at their own risk violating all human rights and produce such culprits with evidence often created as if he was nabbed 24 hours ago and recovered everything as per his confession.
In my opinion the only way to succumb the officials to pressure isinvoke the provisions ofRight To Information Act profusely that eventually the system will be cleansed.

You are 100% right. I tried to nab a cyber crime criminal by reporting to a police station with all the evidence to book him and his bank account. I did not loose any money. After few days the constable called me when I was in Bangalore and asked me where I am as if I have to please him to follow up the case. I said I am out of Bombay and will be back only after 1 month (a lie) and escaped from the situation.

Our police is is the mostcorrupteddepartment in government. I suggest it should be linked with Military service.

Is your car stolen? Pray to God the police never find it

My friend's wife was recently the victim of a chain snatching incident when she was out for an evening walk. Fortunately for her the gold chain around her neck broke and fell on the ground and the thief tried to escape without the chain. She raised an alarm and managed to get the thief nabbed with the assistance of the passersby. Her first reaction afterwards was to let bygones be bygones (since she clearly had not suffered any loss) and the thief had also been thrashed by the on lookers. But as a good citizen she decided to lodge an official police complaint.
That's when the trouble began!
The police arrived a good 30 minutes later and took the thief to the police station and requested my friend's wife to accompany them. She went and lodged a complaint and the process took about 3-4 hours to complete. To make it worse the police asked her to hand over the broken chain as evidence for the case which would be returned to her after the case was over. She was very reluctant but had no choice so she handed it over to the police. It took 3-4 personal visits to the police station and a good 6 months before the chain was finally restored to her.
Incidentally my friend's wife discovered that the police had claimed credit for nabbing the chain snatcher and had even been awarded by Mumbai's police commissioner.
You must be wondering why am I writing about this incident in a column devoted to personal finance?
I will connect up as to why the archaic and inefficient judicial/police system results in situations in the personal finance arena as well, that would be comic if they were not so tragic. A friend bought the case of Ravi Kant to my notice. Ravi's car was stolen from below his house and he filed an FIR with the police and then made a claim with the insurance company for the loss. Only then he realized he would have to produce a not traceable certificate which the police issues only around 3 months after the loss is reported to them and they are still not able to trace the vehicle. The insurance claim is payable only after the not traceable certificate is submitted.

In Ravi's case the vehicle was (un)fortunately traced. It had been used for a crime and then abandoned in a faraway city. He had to take a few days leave and visit the police station where the recovered vehicle was kept to give evidence. Ravi had to do a couple of rounds with the police station and then told that his car was evidence in the case against the criminals. He had the insurance company send a surveyor to inspect the vehicle for any loss but the vehicle was in an okay condition. The vehicle has been gathering dust in the police station compound for quite a few months even as I am writing this article. Of course there is no chance of the insurance company paying him anything and he has had to take a car loan to buy a new car. Now Ravi is cursing his Bad luck that the police actually found his stolen car. If they had not found it he would have been paid the claim by the Insurance Company and would not have to go through so many hassles. Now he will get back the car after it has depreciated substantially.

Clearly a criminal judicial system that requires stolen items to be kept as evidence' till the case reaches a certain level must change or we will continue to have law abiding citizens wishing that the police are not able to trace their stolen car!

[] Radha Soami Satsang Beas near Amristar - can accommodate 2,75,000 under the sheltered dome.


Radha Soami Satsang Beas

Probably the largest Constructed shelteredvenue in India
spread over 32 acres. about 45 kms from Amristar.
Dera Baba Jaimal Singh, or simply theDeraas it is generally known, is a mini-township with 6,000 residents. Since the Dera is the home of the spiritual leader of the organization, large crowds visit on specially designated weekends to hear his discourses. These crowds average more than 250,000 people daily. The administration has become highly skilled in managing and providing facilities for large numbers of people on a short-term basis.
The Venue
In order to provide a shelteredvenuefor these gatherings, the Deras engineering department has constructed one of the largest covered structures in Asia, designed and fabricated on site using a lightweight space-frame technology. The roof covers more than 32 acres and can accommodate a crowd of 275,000. A computerized digital audio system was specially designed for the venue to provide the best possible sound for such a challenging environment.
To feed the visitors three meals a day, several approaches are taken. The langar (a place where food is served free of charge) is the primary means. The free langar complex covers over 48 acres and operates around the clock. Capable of feeding up to 300,000 people per meal, 50,000 in a single sitting, it has a mostly volunteer staff who prepare and serve simple but nourishing food suitable to local tastes. As an example, in 2006 the langar cooked more than 150,000 kilos of rice and used more than 2 million kilos of wheat to make the traditional flat breads. Meals are also served at canteens and snack bars at a nominal price.
The colony is visited by people from around the world and all walks of life. To provide temporary accommodations for everyone, a variety of facilities are offered, all free of charge. There are a number ofguest hostelswith individual rooms and attached baths, hostels with dormitory-style rooms, and other large buildings to house visitors.
The Community
The Dera seeks to be as self-sufficient and environmentally friendly as possible. Every year thousands of trees are planted. Many lawns and parks beautify the colony and provide space for visitors and residents to rest and relax. More than 1,000 acres of land are cultivated for growing vegetables and fruits that are used in the langar and by Dera residents. Organic farming methods are being adapted to local conditions. The Dera has its own water supply, water treatment plant and solid waste treatment facility. It has its own electrical sub-station and large electrical generator back-up facility to supply emergency power to the whole community.
