Getting stuck in the snow can be a colossal headache. Everyone's first instinct is to do exactly what should never be done. You'll want to turn the wheel or to gun the motor for more power. Both of these things will get you stuck in deeper. To get out of a jam in your car, follow these instructions.
Don't rock your car back and forth more than 10 or 12 times, tops. You will ruin your transmission.
•1 Be prepared ahead of time. Keep a bag of kitty litter in the car for traction. It helps a lot in snow or ice.
•2 Use whatever you can find if you have no kitty litter. Tree branches are great for traction--just make sure that you aren't tearing up someone's property to get them. You can also use pieces of old carpeting, or your own car mats if you're really desperate. Sand, gravel or sandpaper will also work.
•3 If you have front-wheel drive, put the branches, litter or whatever you're using for traction under those tires. For a car with four-wheel drive, put them in the front first and then, if you have enough, put them in the back, too.
•4 Point the car wheel straight and try to rock the car. Move from reverse to drive quickly. If that doesn't work after eight or 10 times, give it up. You'll dig yourself in deeper if you keep it up too long, and you can ruin your transmission.
•5 Try to let just a little air out of the tires. That way they can grab a little more traction sometimes. Make sure that you don't forget to put air in again as soon as you can, though.
•6 Find branches and lay them in front of the tires and behind the tires. This is not always possible, but if you are near woods it can be a great last resort.
Our car got stuck in mud in a road in the middle of the forest. The people in the picture helped us out. They did not even hesitate to help. The small boy in the pink shirt saw us and brought the rest of the people. the man in blue t-shirt is from Kottayam and is taking care of an estate, "Merry Land Estate". The estate belongs to a person in Pulinkunnu. They brought some tools and logs and helped us to pull the car out of mud. It was showing the real love of human to another. This is something which we now see missing in the city life. They did not mind making their hand and dress dirty for a strangers family.

It is believed that Lord Ganesh was born on a fourth day (chaturthi) of the bright fortnight of the Hindu lunar month of Magh. Since then, an association between Ganesh and chaturthi has been established. Thus the festival dedicated to the worship of Lord Ganesha on this chaturthi day is named as Ganesh Chaturthi. There were some games organised by Syntillations. The team above is the winning team of tug of war game organised.
The strongest teams even broke the rope once. Josin and team challenging Venu's winning team.

Sardars, the most loved people in this world, who always bring a smile to the face. No offence intended.
A Gujarati, a Madrasi and a Sardar were doing construction work on scaffolding on the 20th floor of a building. They were having lunch and the Gujju opened his lunch box & said, "Dhokla ! If I get dhokla one more time for lunch, I'm going to jump off this building." The Madrasi opened his lunch box and exclaimed, "Idli
The next day, the Gujju opened his lunch box, saw dhokla, and jumped to his death. The Madrasi opened his lunch, saw idli sambhar, and jumped, too. The sardaar opened his lunch, saw the parontha and jumped to his death as well.
At the funeral, Gujju's wife was weeping. She said, "If I'd known how really tired he was of dhokla, I never would have given it to him again!" The Madrasi's wife also wept and said, "I could have given him dosa! I didn't realize he hated idli sambhar so much."
Everyone turned and stared at the Sardar's wife. The Sardar's wife said, "Don't look at me. He makes his own lunch."
