Der Alte

On Saturday, I was browsing DVD's in the local library. Suddenly I remembered 'Der Alte' (a.k.a. The Old Fox).

This is a TV serial I used to watch on TV when I was a young kid. It is originally produced in german, but it was dubbed in english. I don't understand german anyway ;) It's about a german detective Herr Koster played brilliantly by Siegfried Lowitz. I still remember the story about a person who used to poison his victims giving them chocolates.


Sure Insure..

The following article was published in the Times Of India on October 4th, 1992 and I still have its paper copy in my personal collection (although it has turned yellow due to ageing). This was written by Nabendu Debsharma, which I believe is a pseudo name of the author. He used to write several articles about personal finance in the Times Of India and I have good collection of his articles. If you happen to know this author, please let me know his contact details. I would like to meet him or at least write to him. Thanks.

Here is the article. (All copyrights acknowledged.)

Husbands for Sale Store

A store that sells new husbands has opened in Toronto, where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:
You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building!
