India Needs a Vacation

According to a global report by Expedia, India ranks 4th most vacation deprived country globally. So I tried to gather a few thoughts as to why is this a case.

Every time I see the Indian calendar "Kalnirnay" I find so many festivals and thus so many holidays. In spite of so many holidays why are Indians deprived of vacations. So is the report wrong or People do enjoy those holidays. Maybe its incorrect to say that Indians are vacation deprived. And yes, not to speak of the less number of actual working hours.

Actually this is not true for most of us and when I say us I mean the large number of people working in the private sector. This is a very sorry state of affairs at work places, more prevalent in Private sector. That is why stress related diseases are on the rise in our country.

Many have their own notion of vacation and they are not wrong. Of course every individual has his own heaven and his own hell. Some of us only need a full bottle, AC room, continuous supply of non veg and cigarettes, and voila! It's a vacation.

We are yet to reach that status as a country to afford decent vacation. Half of our vacation is pilgrimage any way rather than leisure. Millions of citizens life is miserable and everyday life is a nightmare and no vacation. So I would say those who are lucky enough to have jobs or money to know what vacation means, think yourself privileged!

Indians have no peace in their mind and even if they go on vacation think about problems at work, in business, in family etc. Our bosses behave as though they are rowdies with whom you should never request for a leave. Every boss needs a proper smack on the rear to teach them that they are after all only normal human beings. Bosses behave like if I ask for a week long holiday all hell will break loose. We struggle to get approval for leaves from our bosses. Taking leave is considered as crime by management.


I have to say this to you as well, If Bosses are to be blamed then you too are no saint either. I feel sorry to say that our country is full of money and gold hoarding people and no body has time for holidays. People don't want to have good fun. Instead they are more prone to save lots of black money for so called "future of their children". Many generations have died just by imagining about a rosy future and have not spent in their present. Sometimes I think we should stop the funda of  "leave encashment" maybe then you will find all Indians taking leaves.

36 Facts You have Always Believed to be True but are Actually False

Mind=Blown 
1. Bananas Grow on Trees
Truth - Actually, they grow on massive herbs that just resemble trees.

2. Napoleon was Short
Truth - A tall tale. At five six, he was slightly above average height for a Frenchman of the time.

3. Don't Eat and Swim
Truth - This doesn't increase the risk of cramps; alcohol is the biggest risk increaser. But a full stomach will make you short of breath.

4. Salty Water Boils Quicker
Truth - Adding a sprinkle of salt to water makes no difference. It can actually make boiling take longer.

5. MSG = Headaches
Truth - There's no scientific proof-just anecdotal evidence implicating monosodium glutamate.

6. Dropped Pennies Kill
Truth - Terminal velocity of a penny is 30 to 50 mph. Not fast enough to kill-but it sure would sting.

7. Oil Stops Stuck Pasta
Truth - Nope; it'll only make it greasy. Stirring prevents sticking.

8. Three Wise Men
Truth - Nowhere in the Bible does it specify that there were three.

9. Left and Right Brain
Truth - There's no solid division between the talents of each hemisphere; the left brain can learn "right- brain skills" and vice versa.

10. Dogs Sweat by Salivating
Truth - They regulate temperature through panting. They actually sweat through their footpads.

11. Milk increases Mucus
Truth - It doesn't. There's no need to avoid dairy if you have a cold.

12. Water Rotation
Truth - A flushed toilet does not rotate the other way in the Southern Hemisphere. The Coriolis effect doesn't alter water in toilets.

13. Einstein Failed Math
Truth - He failed an entrance exam for a school but still excelled in math.

14. Humans and Dinosaurs
Truth - Despite 41% of U.S. adults thinking we coexisted, we actually missed each other by 64 million years.

15. Black Holes
Truth - Not really "holes," but rather hugely dense objects with massive gravitational pull.

16. We Have Only 5 Senses
Truth - Some scientists insist on 21, including balance, pain, and temperature.

17. Missing-Persons Reports
Truth - Police don't require a 24-hour waiting period before accepting a missing-persons report.

18. Different Tongue Parts
Truth - There are not different sections of the tongue for each taste: bitter, sour, salty, sweet, and umami (savory/meaty).

19. Only 10% of the Brain Is Used
Truth - The proportion of the brain "firing" at any one time is task dependent, but ultimately, every region is used almost every day.

20. Bats Are Blind
Truth - Not only can bats see, but they also use echolocation. That's why they're so awesome!

21. 7 Years to Digest Gum
Truth - The chewy base of gum is indigestible and passes straight through. The remainder is absorbed.

22. Vikings' Horns
Truth - The helmets were created by a costume designer for a 19th-century Wagner opera.

23. Great Wall of China
Truth - It's not visible from space. No single human structure is visible from orbit, but you can see cities at night.

24. Alcohol Keeps You Warm
Truth - It merely dilates warm blood vessels near the skin, creating the impression of warmth. It can actually drop core body temperature.

25. Vaccines Cause Autism
Truth - Groundless fears based on fraudulent research that's been shown to have been manipulated.

26. Don't Touch Baby Birds
Truth - Most birds have a limited sense of smell, so they won't abandon babies who "smell" of humans.

27. Alcohol Kills Brain Cells
Truth - Even in heavy users and alcoholics, brain cells aren't killed, only damaged.

28. Iron Maidens
Truth - These were never medieval torture devices, but 18th-century fakes were created for sensational circuses.

29. Wake Sleepwalkers?
Truth - They'll be really confused, but it's OK. They're more likely to hurt themselves if they're not awoken.

30. Body Heat and the Head
Truth - Only in infants is most heat lost through the head (unless the head is the only uncovered part of the body).

31. Goldfish's 3-Second Memory
Truth - While not the smartest creatures, goldfish boast a memory span of three months.

32. Sugar = Hyperactivity
Truth - Studies have disproved this. Poor or rowdy behaviors still occur in children with sugar-free diets.

33. Shaving Thickens Hair
Truth - Regrown hair isn't thicker, coarser, or darker; it just appears so because it grows back with a blunt tip.

34. The Vomitorlum
Truth - Not a room Romans used for Bacchana-lian binges, but the name for the en-trance to a stadium.

35. Caffeine Dehydrates You
Truth - Not really. The diuretic effect of caffeine is offset by the amount of water in a caffeinated drink.

36. Bulls Hate Red
Truth -
Bulls are color-blind. They actually perceive the motions of the bullfighter's cloth as a threat.
