A True story :

This lady has changed her habit on the hand phone after her handbag was
stolen.

Her handbag which contained her mobile, credit card, purse..etc....was
stolen.
20 minutes later when she called her hubby, telling him what had happened,
hubby says
"I've just received your SMS asking about our Pin number and I've replied a
little while ago."

When they rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money
was already
withdrawn. The pickpocket had actually used the stolen handphone to sms
"hubby" in the
contact list and got hold of the pin number. Within 20 minutes he had
withdrawn all the money
from the bank account.

Moral of the lesson :
Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your contact
list.
Avoid using names like Home, Honey, Hubby, sweetheart, Dad, Mum etc......

and very importantly,
when sensitive info is being asked thru SMS, CONFIRM by calling back.

PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO YOUR LOVED ONES AND FRIENDS

David,

After 88 replies over-all in Java Ranchers now you are aware of this information that BanaShankari is not the real name..

Could you pls share with us how do you get to know that this name is not following Basic Naming Policy.???

David would not know if 'Bana Shankari' is a place in Bangalore, but other ranchers from Bangalore may know and they are supposed to raise a question. This is how it works.
Going thru this thread I find that 'Rathi Ji' is not a first and last name combination. Rathi is a last name in India and 'Ji' is a suffix used out of respect.
'Rathi Ji', please fix your display name. Thanks.

One guy met with an accident, his condition was critical

The surrounding guys admitted him to hospital

Doctors said 'we need to do an critical operation immediately, but we need security sign from their family members or relatives'.

no body was there related to patient

Then one smart guy picked up patient's mobile and called up with "HOME" number, his parents arrived, the guy got survived.

isn't it useful to have phone numbers like HOME, DAD, HUBBY ???
