Maybe her parents forced her to get an NRI husband. Maybe she used him. Some might say "Nothing wrong with that! Lots of others have done the same."
I know of a similar story but in the medical field in the UK. Its more common than people realise.
Lord, Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill because they pissed me off.

Indeed, I don't doubt it.

Never mind NRI... Local can be bad enough. Last week I read of a guy who married 4 women, walking off with substantial sums each time. He made crores. amazing that he got away with it three times before anyone complained to the police.

Are we going to get IID's--Indian Institutes of Detectives, now that we have a growing list of IITs and even IIMS.

I don't visit BBC website, just some of their shows on TV once in a while, so neither am I a critic nor apologist I thought that astronaut stated he has gone through growth spurt, and that is what was reported. If there is something else to the story, then yes, perhaps I missed the point, not something for which I would read the whole story
If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day

It seems he did say that, and now says, that he was talking nonsense.

UP matchbox letter sets internet on fire

Quote:
It's a straight letter, but the internet is doubling up with laughter over it. When Sushil Kumar, an assistant engineer (meter) in the electricity urban test division of Moradabad, wrote an official letter complete with stamp to his junior Mohit Pant on February 1, he had no idea that he would become such a social media sensation. But one just has to read his agonised missive to see why.

Kumar writes in the subject line: "For not returning the matchbox borrowed on January 23". Then he tells Pant, an office assistant with EUTD, with a copy marked to the superintendent: "A matchbox which was kept in the office to light Mortein (mosquito coils) was borrowed by you at 8.40 pm on Tuesday, January 23. It had 19 matchsticks. But, as a matter of deep sorrow, even after a week, the matchbox has not been returned, causing unspeakable miseries to the staff, especially in evening."
