NICE STORY!! Law of the Garbage Truck

Posted in Belief, bengaluru, Communication, Great thinking, Hope, India, life, Thoughts, Tour by nagaje on February 2, 2010

One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport. We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us.

My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us.

My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was really friendly. So I asked, ‘Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!’ This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, ‘The Law of the Garbage Truck.’

 He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment.

As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they will dump it on you. Don’t take it personally.

Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don’t take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets.

The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day. Life’s too short to wake up in the morning with regrets.

so … Love the people who treat you right. Pray for the ones who don’t. Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it! Have a blessed, garbage-free day!

Where do I buy stamp papers in Bangalore/bengaluru ?

They Stop Printing After Delays In Implementation Of E-Stamp Project; Pilot Scheme Proves A Success, But Malleswaram Presents Problems

S Kushala | TNN

Bangalore: Stamp papers are off banks’ shelves. Nationalized banks that issued stamp papers of smaller denominations have stopped printing the same and will sell only till they exhaust existing stock.
Thanks to the delay in implementation of the much-hyped e-stamping scheme, banks have finally said goodbye to the government. Now, documents can be stamped at sub-registrar offices. Stamp paper vending has been officially stopped by banks from October. According to a communication to the stamps and registration department, there will be no more fresh printing of the papers.
“Banks will not print stamp papers and will clear the stocks. We have made alternative arrangements to supply stamp papers at sub-registrar offices. A stamp certificate will be given for the money deposited which will act as a stamp paper till we introduce e-stamping,” inspector general of registration and commissioner of stamps K R Niranjan told
The Times of India.
After the Telgi stamp paper scam, four banks — State Bank of Mysore, State Bank of India, State Bank of Hyderabad and Corporation Bank — were authorized to sell stamp papers in the denominations of Rs 20, Rs 50 and Rs 100. SBM used to issue a large number of stamp papers. These stamp papers of lesser value are used for writing agreements, affidavits and mortgage deeds.
According to SBM officials, the government had requested the bank to print stamp papers up to March 2009 since the proposed e-stamping had to get rolling. When that did not happen, the bank was asked to continue issuing stamp papers from April to June, which was further extended till September.
The banks need three months to print the papers since it’s a high security risk job.
Sub-registrar offices open separate desks to issue stamp papers, but they’re not the formatprinted ones You take the deed document (agreement or affidavit printed on a white sheet of paper), pay the amount (Rs 20, Rs 50 or Rs 100) and get it stamped An acknowledgement is given and the deed is duly sealed; this makes for a stamp paper The seal is put on the printed document to ensure the stamp paper is not misused Department wants to set up additional estamping counters
Rs 20 denomination stamp papers are most sought after; Rs 100 is revenue grosser From 2008 till date: 2.6 crore sheets of Rs 20 denomination stamp papers sold, Rs 52.04 crore collected; 2.3 crore sheets of Rs 50 stamp paper sold, Rs 118 crore earned; 1.83 crore sheets of Rs 100 stamp paper sold, Rs 183 crore collected

This was the old post. Dont read below it is – OLD NEWS:

Sad state of affairs at bengaluru. You only get stamp papers from State Bank of Mysore. So, go to their web site and look out for the branches which sell stamp papers.

They normally have fixed timings and Rs50 and Rs 100 are unavailable most of the times and the window to get the stamp papers is generally between 9am -11.30am- so get their early.

The branch in Majestic will however have all the stamp paepers but be prepared for the serpentine queues and long wait times before you can fill the challan and get your stamp paper.

Do not know why they have not started e-franking the stamp papers. It is a pity that in Bangalore everything is lethargic. High time authorities wake up. IG of stamp  & registration should do something to not waste so many peoples time. Wonder what he is doing in office – must be a very busy official saving the Universe ?

“All sub-registrar offices allow for official endorsement, the alternative to stamp paper,” -Ha Ha Dont rely on this because they will guide you to another office. Any complaints? Contact the inspector general on 2210246 or email:
