Just thought I would share these experiences of Kala-astami. I have once seen another moral in Shozhinganallur Pratyankara Devi temple. When some one scolds or abuses you, allow them to do it without any let or hindrance for they partake and offer to shoulder your sins giving you in return the result of their good deeds if any.
- Virus Bomb. Neither did the fr***ing AVG nor Inbox.com able halted it and it came right into the Inbox. Interestingly since it was a screensaver application and I don't trust such apps I got VirusTotal to do a scan for it which let the cat out of the bomb. The sender had included around 500 recipients in the same message besides sending one more spam. I have been ransacking my brains and its archived repositories tremendously to see if I could not recall the sender and if I know him/her but to no avail. So in a good samaritan gesture I chose to 'Reply All' to the disribution regarding the necessity of Scanning proactively with Cloud security systems like VirusTotal, Jotti and Panda Cloud besides resident antivirus systems like AVG, Kaspersky, McAfee etc.
- Solicitation. One of the recipient involved in the interesting incident outlined (1) was soliciting personal assistance regarding a hacking.

- Reported the email to Inbox.com and Google Mail along with my advise to the recipient list.
- Advised regarding forum posting guidelines. Not sure whether the direct recipient would be able to understand it but at least it would be useful for others.
- Catastrophic showers of disgusting words on me and my sister.

Neither of us are bothered about such bad showers. We have come all along covering a lot of such similar trials and tribulations of life. But I would just like to share a small story from the life of Gautama Buddha for the benefit of everyone:
