In May, Varsha became the youngest ever girl to get an officially recognised black belt.

High-kicking Varsha faced up to British Karate Federation Champion Juan Moreno in London.

Luckily the match-up was not for real, although dad-of-two Juan, 31 years her senior at 36, admitted he was shocked at just how good Varsha was.

He said: "She is the ultimate karate kid.

"It's hard to remember she is just five. Her skills and concentration are amazing.

"I have two young children myself but I couldn't imagine them putting in the concentration and effort Varsha has.

"I think it is an extraordinary achievement how far she has come in just a few short years.

"Varsha, her trainer and her dad are definitely the real thing."

Juan, who studies Bunjinkai karate, could be fighting for Britain in the upcoming European Championships in 2010.

The five-year-old's talents are so amazing computer game makers and creators of the Lara Croft Tomb Raider series, Eidos, have taken notice.

Her skills have been replicated in the software houses' latest computer game Mini Ninjas released this month.

Varsha has been training since she was just two years old and has already got 15 katas, or disciplines, of karate under her belt.

Her skills also include the mastery of deadly martial arts weapons including the yawara stick, or chinese stick, and the nunchucks.

Varsha, who is a student at the KoInChi Academy of Martial arts in Allappuzha, India, has to train for a gruelling two and half hours a day to keep her skills fresh.

In front of a crowd of thousands the diminutive dan received her official title from state officials in the country in May.

Varsha, who also finds time to attend her local English school when she is not training, said she was very proud of her belt.

She said: "I was very excited when I got my belt and I like karate very much.

"The other children are very proud of me, I don't think they are frightened of me.

"I hope I can get better and I want to keep doing karate."

Her father Viswanathan Vinod, 37, said Varsha's family and the entire neighbourhood were excited about her achievement.

He said: "She was absolutely delighted, but I don't think she has really understood how amazing this thing is for someone of her age.

"She picked it up very well, to everybody's surprise, even though I was a little worried, but she loves it.

"We all are extremely delighted and proud."

"There were thousands of people there and they all congratulated her after her demonstration of double nunchuck rotation and kangudai Katas, which are karate disciplines.

"I never thought that she could handle that much so young and the effort she has put in is amazing.

"Her lifetime ambition is to be a physician, but at the same time she wants to continue to practice more on karate."

Her mother, schoolteacher Sunitha Vinod, 27, said her daughter had a wisdom beyond her years.

She said: "Varsha has always been quite a serious little girl and she knows what she wants, I am very proud of her.

Varsha's coach VZ Sebastian, who has been teaching students for more than 30 years, said he saw something special in Varsha.

He said: "I spotted that this little girl had excellent concentration and dedication at this early stage.

"We trained together and she always puts a great effort in her training.

"I am very proud of her for learning 15 katas and kubudos and I think she is very special student, but I think the best is yet to come from her in future."

Chief instructor Andy Kirby, from the UK's Central Federation of Traditional Shotokan Karate, said Varsha was definitely very unusual.

He said: "She must be exceptionally talented, be very good technically and have a good memory.

"I have never heard of a child this young getting a black belt before; she must be very special.

"I give her a pat on the back for doing this. In the UK we don't even start training children until they are at least five years old because of insurance issues."

The Guinness Book of Records and India's own record book Limica are now looking into Varsha's achievement to create a new world record.

World record? Guinness Rishi believes he's the fastest person at drinking ketchup

Speed is the word for Guinness Rishi as he powers his way through a giant 490 gram bottle of ketchup in just 39 seconds.

Guinness believes he holds the fastest time for drinking the world's favourite condiment, which he sups through a straw.

His brand of choice is a toss up between Maggi or the more traditional Heinz.

And 67-year-old Guinness, from Delhi, India, doesn't confine his talents to the world of tomato sauce.

He claims to hold 19 world titles and even changed his name - from Har Parkash to Guinness Rishi - in a bid to win over official record-keepers.

But so far none of his bizarre stunts have been recognised in the Guinness Book of Records.

Guinness puts his motivation down to the need to stand out in a country of over 1 billion people.

'People consider me an extraordinary person, not an ordinary person,' he said.

His records include 'taking on the world's oldest adoptee', after he legally took custody of his 61-year-old brother-in-law.

Guiness also built the tallest sugar cube tower in the world, which stands at 64 inches.

He took his new name in 1991, after keeping a motor scooter in continuous motion for 1,001 hours for another bizarre record.

[Guiness Rishi changed his name from Har Parkash in a bid to win over official record-keepers, but he's not yet made the Guiness Book of Records]

'Persons who have no money wish to do something in their lives, so the poor people try to break records by their strength or their will,' said Guinness, who is joint owner of an auto-parts factory.

The ketchup-crazed pensioner said he will continue to find new records to break until he achieves his dream of official recognition.

'I hope to make my family proud,' he said.

Guinness, from Delhi in India, says he wants to achieve recognition in a country of 1billion people

'My children feel they are more important in the field of business and money-making.

'I have to show the family and the community that I am a professional person.'

Now Guinness is trying to find a way of combining eating chips with his ketchup-drinking record in the hope of attracting the attention of judges.

The price of Kawasaki Ninja 250R in India yet to be announced.

Description and features:

The Ninja 250R's particular ergonomics, chassis design, and engine placement have resulted in a motorcycle that straddles the standard and sport classes. The Ninja's riding position also falls somewhere between the standard and sport riding postures. The bike has good performance within its engine class, capable of running the quarter mile in 15.58 s @ 81.98 mph (131.93 km/h) (it had been 1 s faster in the prior generation), while providing the amenities of more utilitarian motorcycles, including bungee hooks for transporting cargo and space for a second passenger to sit comfortably.

The latest model, the EX250-J or fourth generation, brought the Ninja's first major update in many years. Appearance upgrades included an increase in wheel size to 17", and completely redesigned fairings which give the motorcycle a sleeker, more modern appearance than the boxier earlier generations.

The Suitable Groom

In Posta, I heard it being said
That you are getting your daughter wed
That Gangaram is the groom to be-
Want to know his pedigree?
After all, he aint a bad man
Though his color is highly tan.

The shape of his face is right
Like the owl that comes at night.
In studies, I would like to state
Its hard to find someone so great-
Nineteen times he tried to pass
The matric when he stopped at last.

Asset wise they are also fine
Being slightly over the poverty line.
His brothers are not at all bad
One's headstrong, the other's mad,
The third son was brought up well-
He forged banknotes and went to jail.
Playing tabla is what the youngest knows-
He earns five bucks from standup shows.

Gangaram is often down in bed
With ailments of the spleen and head
But his lineage is a royal one-
His forefather being King Kansh's son
And Shyam Lahiri of Bonogram
Is somehow related to Gangaram.

Now, of course, I feel, without a doubt
That a groom like him would make you very proud.

Niagara Falls

The image shows the Niagara River that connects Lake Erie to Lake Ontario , snaking around Goat Island , in the lower left of the full image. Most of the river's water plummets over the Canadian/Horseshoe Falls, but some diverted water spills over American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls downstream. Every second, more than two million liters of water plunges over the Horsehoe Falls segment of Niagara Falls creating one of the world's largest waterfalls as well as eating away as much as two meters of rock per year. The image was acquired August 2, 2004

The Nile River

This image of the northern portion of the Nile River was captured by the Multi-angle Imaging Spectroradiometer's (MISR's) nadir camera on January 30, 2001. Against the barren desert of northeastern Africa, the fertile valley of the Nile River runs northward through Egypt . The city of Cairo can be seen as a gray smudge right where the river widens into its broad fan-shaped delta. Other cities are dotted across the green landscape, giving it a speckled appearance. Where the Nile empties into the Mediterranean Sea (top) the waters are swirling with color, likely a mixture of sediment, organic matter, and possibly marine plant life. Farther west! , the bright blue color of the water is likely less-organically rich sediment, perhaps sand.

The brightest areas of the Earth are the most urbanized, but not necessarily the most populated. Cities tend to grow along coastlines and transportation networks. The United States interstate highway system appears as a lattice connecting the brighter dots of city centers.

A lady manager of a big reputed office noticed a new man one day and told him to come into her office.

"What is your name?" was the first thing she asked the new guy.

"John," the new guy replied.

She scowled, "Look... I don't know what kind of a namby-pamby place you worked before, but I don't call anyone by their first name. It breeds Familiarity and that leads to a breakdown in authority.

I refer to my employees by their last name only ... Smith, Jones, Baker ...that's all.

I am to be referred to only as Mrs. Robertson. Now that we got that straight, what is your last name?"

The new guy sighed, "Darling............ My name is John Darling."

"Okay John, the next thing I want to tell you is . . ."

Moral :
Some rules cannot be followed.... Exceptions are always there !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
