Navratri means Nine (Nav) Nights (Ratri). Navratri or the Festival of Nine Nights from Ashvin Sud 1 to 9 is devoted to the propitiation of Shakti or Divine Mother. She represents prakriti, counterpart of purusha jointly making possible the creation of the world according to the religious ideology of Goddess worship. Such worships were prevalent in India even before the advent of the Aryans, who adopted it as a religious practice. References in vedas and puranas confirm this opinion. The main temples of mother goddess that are visited by multitude of devotees during Navratri are the shaktipithas, of which there are three in Gujarat. It is believed that Lord Vishnu had to cut the body of Sati into pieces to stop the destruction by Shiva who was perturbed by her death. At fifty-two places these pieces fell, the three in Gujarat being; Ambaji in Banaskantha, Bahucharaji in Chunaval and Kalika on Pavagadh hill in Panchmahals.

The Debrett's Guide for the Modern Gentleman has everything from what to say and how to say it, when and how to make the first move.
When making your first move, remember the old-fashioned chivalry is still much appreciated by the fairer sex, reports Telegraph.
Holding the door and being prepared to pay for the meal are a given. Giving up your seat isn't necessary for those looking for love - unless you are trying to attract a pregnant or elderly lady.
Your conversation has to be a fine balance between talking and listening.
Avoid talking about the three principal passions killers: money, illness or death.
First date rules include drinks or lunch, that way having to avoid wasting an evening if you hate each other. Compliment her and come the end, if all's gone well, try to kiss her.
Take a bouquet of flowers with you, but remember, mixed bouquets can look cheap if not a decent size. Bulk up the flowers with greenery to make a nice present.
Never buy a cheap arrangement online or from a supermarket or garage, and avoid the "kiss of death" - a bunch of carnations or chrysanthemums.
For those dating with children, are warned that your little kids are vital. Never ignore your kids or choose solely adult activities to impress your date.
Blind dates should be avoided, but if you find one, stick around for at least two drinks. An early departure is "humiliating and ungentlemanly".
For those dating online, don't fall into the temptation of trying to be funny with your profile picture. Use a flattering one, but make sure it is realistic. Chat up lines are no substitute for eye contact and good humour.
When planning to pop up the question timing, location and confidence are all things you should prepare. Get down on one knee, she'll love it.
And when it comes to choosing a diamond ring, remember the four Cs - carat, clarity, colour and cut.
If disaster strikes remember to keep your dignity and never grovel, lose your temper or try to change her mind.
May Allah this occasion flood your life with happiness,
Your heart with love, Your soul with spirtual,
Your mind with wisdom,
wishing You a very Happy Eid.
Eid ul adha is eid of sacrifice, and commitment to Allahs orders,
May Allah bless us with the same in all circles of life,
and help all amongst us,
who r helpless,worried, and waiting for his rehmat, Ameen.
What makes you feel proud of being an Indian?
Come on lets share your thought.
We can harp about inflation. Worry about instability at the Centre. Cry about terrorism. And condemn corruption. OR shout that we are big in Information Technology. Most of our professionals give foreigners a run for their money. Despite all opposition we still maintain our stance on Nuclear deal. As Indians we have many reasons to crib and even more to be proud of our country. What's your choice? What makes you a proud Indian?
Happy Independence Day!
Happy Independence Day
Freedom is not Right but a Feeling!
Let`s be proud to feel the Freedom!
Let`s say loud we are INDIANS!!!
Let all of us get to-gather and
Let`s Celebrate Our Freedom!
Schools and colleges mark the day with cultural activities, drills, flag hoisting and distribution of sweets. Government as well as private organisations celebrate it similarly.
Families and friends get together for lunch or dinner, or for an outing. Housing colonies, cultural centres, clubs and societies hold entertainment programmes and competitions, usually based on the freedom theme.
The Prime Minister sets the mood by hoisting the national flag and addressing the nation from the Red Fort, the historical monument in Delhi. This is accompanied by a march-past of the armed and police forces. Similar ceremonies are held in all the state capitals. The Prime Minister's address and the march-past are relayed live on national television.
In cities, one sees a sudden burst of saffron, green and white, the Indian tri-colour. The media goes to town with a variety of contests, promotions and programmes related to Indian independence. Television channels show patriotic movies and relentlessly play patriotic songs from old and new Hindi movies. Billboards on roadsides for different brands pay their tribute to the nation.
Everyone seems to have something going for them. Shops and petty tradesmen sell a range of Independence Day merchandise such as flags, stickers, tee-shirts and greeting cards. Street urchins hawk paper and plastic flags and tri-coloured balloons to motorists at traffic signals.
Though a trifle commercial and jingoistic, what lies beneath the celebrations is the national spirit of gaiety, pride and hope for a better future. A spirit and hope that is renewed each year.
The moment ended three centuries of British colonial rule. The land was no longer the summer retreat of British sahibs who fancied spices, shikar, elephants and snake-charmers.
Independence was also the end of nearly a century of struggle for freedom, battles, betrayals and sacrifices. It also created a situation where we were responsible for ourselves.
But it wasn't a period of unqualified joy. For a lot of people, in spite of a new era promised by independence, partition was a painful reality and so was the bloodshed that accompanied it. That was 53 years ago. Much has changed; the struggle for freedom lives on in history books and memoirs, and on the tombstones of valiant martyrs. Politics has undergone a personality change from fiery idealism to a pragmatic cynicism. Karma drives the nation on its way forward, and population has crossed the billion mark.
But, come August 15, and the people put their troubles behind them for a while, as they stand up as a nation for the National Anthem. Along with the soaring cadences of the anthem, the hopes and dreams for a better tomorrow are renewed in political speeches and replays of the deeds of those who earned us our freedom.
Independence Day is an occasion to rejoice in our freedom and to pay collective homage to all those people who sacrificed their lives to the cause. But it is more than that. It also marks the coming together of more than 400 princely states into one nation - India. This was probably our biggest diplomatic success.
Each year, August 15 gives us the reason to celebrate all this, and do much more - it is a time to contemplate what we have and how we achieved it.
Though India had no dearth of religious and community festivals, there was, till Independence, no true national festival that the whole country could partake of. Independence Day, beginning as a day to commemorate the greatest moment in Indian history, has now come to signify a feeling of nationalism, solidarity and celebration.
Independence Day remained the sole national festival till India declared itself a republic in 1950. On January 26, 1950, Republic Day became the second Indian national holiday.
Background to the freedom struggle
Before the 18th century, India's relationship with the West had been predominantly trade-related. All this changed when the forces of the East India Company defeated Siraj-ud-Daulah, the Nawab of Calcutta.
That signalled the arrival of the British as rulers. Till the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857, the East India Company, with the Governor General as its head, ruled the subcontinent. After that, the Crown took over the administration, with the Viceroy as its representative.
In the 20th century, the country witnessed the rise of many leaders such as Gopal Krishna Gokhale, Jawaharlal Nehru and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. Banded under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi and his doctrine of non-violence, the freedom struggle moved ahead with new vigour. Milestones like the Quit India Movement, Non-Cooperation Movement, Khilafat Movement and Gandhi's Dandi March brought the inevitable freedom closer.
All Government Organisations have a holiday as 15th August is a National holiday . In the capital New Delhi most of the Government Offices are lit up. In all the cities around the country the Flag Hoisting Ceremony is done by politicians belonging to that constituency. In various private organisations the Flag Hoisting Ceremony is carried out by a Senior officer of that organisation.
On Television, various Independence related programs are telecasted, reminding us of the hard times faced by the freedom fighters. In almost all the schools and colleges around the country, no academic work in done on this day, but all the students and staff members are present on this day and there is a sort of gathering of the entire school/college within their respective premises and the flag hoisting ceremony takes place,(usually in the presence of the principal)and singing of the National Anthem. After this there are various cultural activities held in the school / college and the celebration continues till late evening.
The 20-year-old Barbados-born beauty, renowned for her revealing stage outfits, came first in the poll conducted by stomach-flattening supplement AntiBloat, reports China Daily.
Second on the list was Keira Knightley, who is famous for wearing midriff-flashing costumes, and who has bared her taut abs in movies including 'Bend It Like Beckham' and 'King Arthur'.
Dame Helen Mirren, who recently wowed onlookers with her trim physique when she donned a bikini while on holiday in the Italian Riviera, came third in the poll.
Sienna Miller, who showed off her enviable toned figure in a skimpy bikini while on holiday recently, shared the fourth spot with Liz Hurley.
Rounding off the top five was Jemima Khan, an English socialite known due to her relationships as Hugh Grant's ex-girlfriend, the former wife of Pakistani cricketer Imran Khan, and a daughter of late billionaire James Goldsmith.
"The survey results reveal that a sexy stomach isn't governed by age, which is good news for all those wanting to tone up or maintain a flat tummy," AntiBloat spokesperson Jalal Janmohamed said.

If I could only be,
Worthy of one wish from Thee.
I would not ask for wealth or fame--
For I have more in Jesus' Name;
I would nor ask for homes and lands--
My treasures lie in Jesus' hands;
I would not ask for health or food--
For thou dost give me all that's good;
But I would that I could see,
Just how the greatest friend to be
To one Thou'st given me to love,
Both here and in our Home above--
That, Lord, the love Thou hast given me
Might fill his life and soul, that he
Will never question, never fear,
My love for him is just veneer--
But man each time I clasp his hand,
Feel friendship true, and understand
That of Thy many gifts I see,
He is a precious one to me.
Everyone Should Have A Friend Like You
Everyone should have a friend like you
You are so much fun to be with
And you are such a good person
You crack me up with laughter
And touch my heart with your kindness
You have a wonderful ability
To know when to offer advice
And when to sit in quiet support
Time after time
You've come to my rescue
And brightened so many of my routine days
And time after time
I've realized how fortunate
I am that my life includes you
I really do believe that
Everybody should have a friend like you
But so far it looks like
You are one of a kind!
Full many a glorious morning have I see
Flatter the mountain-tops with sovereign eye,
Kissing with golden face the meadows green,
Gilding pale streams with heavenly alchemy;
Anon permit the basest clouds to ride
With ugly rack on his celestial face,
And from the forlorn world his visage hide,
Stealing unseen to west with this disgrace:
Even so my sun one early morn did shine
With all-triumphant splendour on my brow;
But out, alack! He was but one hour mine;
The region cloud hath mask'd him from me now.
Yet him for this my love no whit disdaineth;
Suns of the world may stain when heaven's sun staineth.
When my love swears that she is made of truth
I do believe her though I know she lies,
That she might think me some untutored youth
Unlearned in the world's false subtleties.
Thus vainly thinking that she thinks me young,
Although she knows my days are past the best,
Simply I credit her false-speaking tongue;
On both sides thus is simple truth suppressed.
But wherefore says she not she is unjust,
And wherefore say not I that I am old?
O, love's best habit is in seeming trust,
And age in love loves not to have years told.
Therefore I lie with her, and she with me,
And in our faults by lies we flattered be.
Blow, Blow, thou winter wind!
Thou art not so unkind
As man's ingratitude
Thy tooth is not so keen
Because thou art not seen.
Although thy breath be rude.
Heigh ho! sing, heigh ho! unto the green holly;
Most friendship is feigning most loving mere folly.
Then, heigh ho, the holly!
This life is most jolly.
Freeze, freeze, thou bitter sky,
That dost not bite so ngh
As benefits forgot:
Though thou the watters warp,
Thy sting is not so sharp
As friend remembered not.
Heigh-ho! sing heigh-ho! unto the green holly:
Most friendship is feigning, most love mere folly:
Then heigh-ho, the holly!
This life is most Jolly.
I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.
I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For who has sight so keen and strong,
That it can follow the flight of song?
Long, long afterward, in an oak
I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend.
There's lots of things
With which I'm blessed,
My problems have been few,
But of all, this one's the best:
To have a friend like you.
In times of trouble
Friends will say,
"Just ask, I'll help you through it."
But you don't wait for me to ask,
You just get up and do it!
And I can think
of nothing more
That I could wisely do,
Than know a friend,
And be a friend,
And have a friend like you.
The Best of Friends
The best of friends,
Can change a frown,
Into a smile,
when you feel down.
The best of friends,
Your little trials,
And lend a hand.
The best of friends,
Will always share,
Your secret dreams,
Because they care.
The best of friends,
Worth more than gold,
Give all the love,
A heart can hold.
When to the session of sweet silent thought
I summon up remembrance of things past,
I sigh the lack of many a thing I sought,
And with old woes new wail my dear time's waste:
Then can I drown an eye, unused to flow,
For precious friends hid in deathšs dateless night,
And weep afresh love's long since cancelled woe,
And moan the expense of many a vanishšd sight:
Then can I grieve at grievances foregone,
And heavily from woe to woe tell o'er
The sad account of fore-bemoaned moan,
Which I new pay as if not paid before.
But if the while I think on thee, dear friend,
All losses are restored and sorrows end.
A friend is somebody
Who knows you and likes you
Exactly the way that you are...
Someone who's special
And so close in thought
That no distance can ever seem far.
A friend understands you without any words,
Stands by you when nothing goes right...
And willingly talks over problems with you
Till they somehow just vanish from sight.
And whether you're neighbors or live miles apart,
A word from a friend gives a lift
To your heart and spirit that shows you once more
Why friendship is life's dearest gift!
If you're lonely,
And need a friend,
And troubles seem like
They never end,
Just remember to keep the Faith,
And Love will be there to Light the Way.
Anytime you need a friend,
I will be here.
You'll never be alone again,
So don't you fear.
Even if you're miles away,
I'm by your side.
So don't you ever be lonely.
Love will make it alright.
When the shadows are closing in,
And your Spirit diminishing,
Just remember you're not alone,
And Love will be there,
To Guide you Home.
Factually, one of the best moments
Remaining in my heart of hearts
Inevitably none other than you
Evident from my action towards thou
Need no proof for the greatest ship
Destined to be your greatest friend in this friend-ship.
First to wish you on your birthday
Relishing every moment with you that day
Ignoring the changes in your moods
Expecting you to provide me the food
Never again will we ever part
Despite everything that happened in the past.
Forget not the moments that we relish
Round and round the rose bush
Igniting the light of our great love
Enough to burn the field we plough
Not again should we ever part
Death will only tear us apart
You're a friend of mine
Well count me in
I'm gonna stand right by your side through thick or thin.
Ain't no doubt
A walk through hell ain't bad compared to where we've been.
Oh! you can depend on me
Over and over...
Know that I intend to be the one who always makes you laugh until you cry,
and you can call on me until the day you die.
Years may come and go
Here's one thing I know
All my life,
You're a friend of mine.
What if mountains fall?
Nothin' left at all!
I'll be fine
Becoz you're a friend of mine.
"Your friend is the man who knows all about you, and still likes you."

Most often friends understand us, just by looking at us or hearing our voice. This heart-to-heart bonding is what makes friendship so exclusive, setting it apart from all other relationships.

'You are employed' he said. Give me your e-mail address and I'll send you the application to fill in, as well as date when you may start.
The man replied 'But I don't have a computer, neither an email'.
'I'm sorry', said the HR manager. If you don't have an email, that means you do not exist. And who doesn't exist, cannot have the job.'
The man left with no hope at all. He didn't know what to do, with only $10 in his pocket. He then decided to go to the supermarket and buy a 10Kg tomato crate. He then sold the tomatoes in a door to door round. In less than two hours, he succeeded to double his capital. He repeated the operation three times, and returned home with $60.
The man realized that he can survive by this way, and started to go everyday earlier, and return late. Thus, his money doubled or tripled everyday.
Shortly, he bought a cart, then a truck, and then he had his own fleet of delivery vehicles.
5 years later, the man is one of the biggest food retailers in the US He started to plan his family's future, and decided to have a life insurance.
He called an insurance broker, and chose a protection plan. When the conversation was concluded the broker asked him his email. The man replied,'I don't have an email.' The broker answered curiously, 'You don't have an email, and yet have succeeded to build an empire. Can you imagine what you could have been if you had an e mail?!!' The man thought for a while and replied, 'Yes, I'd be an office boy at Microsoft!'

1. What were the five words ?
2. What is the implication of this story?
The husband just said "I am with you Darling"
The husband's totally unexpected reaction is a proactive behavior. The child is dead. He can never be brought back to life. There is no point
in finding fault with the mother. Besides, if only he had taken time to keep the bottle away, this would not have happened.. No one is to be blamed. She had also lost her only child. What she needed at that moment was consolation and sympathy from the husband. That is what he gave her.
If everyone can look at life with this kind of perspective, there would be much fewer problems in the world. "A journey of a thousand miles
begins with a single step". Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness, and fears. And you will find things are
actually not as difficult as you think.
MORAL OF THE STORY:
This story is really worth reading. ..... Sometimes we spend time in asking who is responsible or whom to blame, whether in a relationship,
in a job or with the people we know. By this way we miss out something called L.I.F.E
Clothes make an impression even before you open your mouth. They're an almost inevitable extension of your personality, since you choose colours and cuts that you are most comfortable with.
Whether you like short skirts or prefer gender-bender ensembles, your style classifies you faster than you can say "fashion". Find out what kind of woman you are by taking a peek at what's hanging in your cupboard.
We've come up with five different 'types' of women, as defined by their clothes (the pics show what each one is likely to wear to office). The appropriately dressed has timeless taste, the attention grabber is confident of her body, the fashion forward can also become a victim, the one with a rebellious streak wants to be accepted the way she is and the jhola-clad, NGO/ journalist type, thinks there is no link between fashion and mettle.
But there is also a sixth type, the woman who wants to be invisible. And since she wants to fade away, we couldn't think of a picture! You could call her the 'sack specialist. 'She might have a killer figure and face to match, but she will always be clad in shapeless, unflattering garments. She will go for loose and baggy clothes, in colours that don't stand out, but help her conceal herself.
Three reasons why she does so: One, she might be self-conscious about the flaws in her figure, two, she might be low on self-confidence and three, she might want to downplay her gender because of her job. Classic Beauty This type is never inappropriately dressed for any occasion.
She sticks to simple yet elegant fashion choices. For office, she'll pick formal skirts and trousers, worn with perfectly ironed blouses and well-cut jackets.
But for an opulent party, she'll chuck the sober threads for a figure hugging dress in a colour she knows suits her complexion or an elegant sari. The jewellery will be expensive but low key, like a thin platinum chain or emerald ear studs.
Her make up will be natural and subtly enhance her features. The hair will always be well groomed. Says fashion designer Deepika Govind, "This woman is elegant and confident about herself. She wants to draw attention to herself and not her clothes.
Her attire is a way of enhancing her persona." Dubbed as the "classy lady", she wears items that are timeless.
So while she might not be trendy, she will never be called old-fashioned either. In fact, this kind of dresser prefers creating a personalised look for herself.
What she thinks: "I am comfortable in my skin. I don't need to be flashy. I dress according to the occasion." Likely to wear: Office: Formals.
Party: Dresses that flatter her figure without being showy. Casual outing: The comfortable tee and jeans.
Upside: Will never stick out like a sore thumb. Downside: Is predictable.
Celebrity Type: Preity Zinta. Eyes On Me She likes being the cynosure of all eyes.
So her outfits make heads turn. She is a step ahead of the classic beauty; she is not only comfortable in her skin but also has a no-holds-bar attitude about flaunting her figure.
Fashion designer Manju Grover points out two subtypes to this category. "Some bold dressers like to have fun with their clothes.
They experiment with bright and bold colours, prints and choose unusual styles, patterns and silhouettes. The second type is the "over the top" sort who revels in plunging necklines, skin-tight fits and dangerously raised hemlines. "Spotting such a woman is quite easy. She'll pair a sexy halter top with formal pants, even in office.
She adds the outr and #233; touch even to a sari. A bright colour or wearing the sari low on the waist with a risqu and #233; blouse is her style. What she thinks: "Everybody look at me. I am confident about my body.
"Likely to wear: Office: Short formal skirt with a bright shirt/fitted pants with a cut-sleeve top. Party: A golden, body-hugging short dress.
Casual outing: Cleavage-baring top with low-rise jeans. Upside: Her experimentation makes her interesting. The range of colours and styles are always exciting to watch. Downside: Might tipple the thin line between appropriate dressing and vulgarity.
Celebrity Type: Malika Sherawat. Miss Trendy If it's in vogue, she has it.
This trendy diva follows fashion trends like people follow stock markets. Even a slight shift in the fashion barometer directly affects her wardrobe.
It doesn't matter where she is headed - to the office, a party or for an evening jog - her attire will reflect changing styles. Agrees designer Manju Grover, "Skinny jeans or bell-bottoms - the latest style will be in her wardrobe before anybody else.
She will always be geared for any fashion emergency. Trend conscious women also track precise colour forecasts for the season.
" Her clothes might be impractical or uncomfortable but they will look like they are fresh off the ramp. What she is saying: "I am in sync with everything around me.
" Likely to wear: Office: A knee-length balloon skirt with a simple, formal blouse. Or anything that's in vogue.
Party: A short shirt dress or a net sari. Casual outing: Skinny jeans with empire line strappy top.
Upside: Can be a trendsetter in her group. Downside: No individual taste.
Oh, so boring! Celebrity Type: Kareena Kapoor. The Rebel She is a non-conformist and individualistic.
" A pair of ethnic jhumkas and bangles with a leather jacket would be her style. Likely to wear: Office: Cotton sari with a long silk kurti and running shoes, informal skirt with formal shirt.
Party: It just has to be oddly matched. A knee-length dress with jeans and running shoes.
Casual time-out: Anything she can find in her closet. What she says: "I am unique and I don't conform to norms.
I can look good without having to follow what people think is fashionable." Upside: Celebrates individuality.
Can throw up surprises. Downside: One can end up looking extremely garish and out-of-place.
Not everyone can carry off the enfant terrible look. Celebrity Type: Kangana Ranaut.
Club Jhola This variety is often spotted in newspaper offices and at NGOs or is part of some theatre group or literary association. The jhola-carrying woman is as far from fashion and trends as one can possibly be.
And that is how she prefers it. She loves her khadi kurtas, some mixed with silk, in all lengths with jeans, Kolhapuri chappals and the ubiquitous jhola, that might be stocked with Ibsen's anthology of plays or Premchand.
Don't get her wrong - she does want to look good but also wants to proclaim that she has mettle and is an intellectual. But it's also about functionality.
Says designer Deepika Govind, "Since cotton is a symbol of functionality and reflects minimalism, it is popular with this type. They also sport artistic pieces of jewellery.
And loads of kohl." What she says: "I am a woman of substance.
" Likely to wear: Office: Cotton saris. Party: Khadi-silk sari with silver jewellery.
Casual time-out: Khadi or cotton pyjamas with tops or skirts and Kolhapuri chappals. Upside: Is recognised as an intellectual.
Standing for what you believe in regardless of the odds against you, and the pressure that tears at your resistance
Keeping a smile on your face when inside you feel like dying, for the sake of supporting others
Stopping at nothing and doing what's in your heart that you know is right
Doing more than is expected, to make another's life a little more bearable, without uttering a single complaint
Helping a friend in need, no matter the time or effort, to the best of your ability
Holding your head high And being the best you know you can be when life seems to fall apart at your feet,
Facing each difficulty with thoughts that time will bring you better tomorrows, And never giving up...
Come with me and take my hand Walk with me through the sand.
Tell me your love is true Cause baby I’d do anything for you.
Hold me close and tell me, So sweet That it’s me that makes your
heart beat. Smile at me and look at me In the eyes of destiny Come
with me and never part Hand in hand, heart in heart.
Lay with me under the stars Make a wish upon afar Wish to always
be with me Cause together I see us be.
I’m falling deep in love with you In the sea in which love is true
Drowning quickly in loves’ eyes Hold me close, confine my cries.
Tell me forever you’ll love me deep And hold me close when
we fall asleep. If you know my love is true And forever I’ll be in love with you
Come with me and hold my hand

She is best known today as Mrs. David Beckham—and regularly hounded by the paparazzi because of it—but the fact is Victoria is one hot dame, and we wouldn’t mind a bit if she decided to be our English teacher.
Born Victoria Adams in proper Hertfordshire, England, Victoria joined the all-girl group Touch in 1994, along with Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown and Melanie Chisholm. The group changed its name to the Spice Girls, and its first single, “Wannabe,” shot to number one in both the UK and the U.S. It would be followed by eight other number one hits from two legendary albums, Spice and Spiceworld. The group was one of the most successful pop acts of the ’90s, selling more than 55 million records worldwide, but after their third album, Forever, lasted anything but, the Spice Girls stopped recording, and Victoria began work on a solo career, spawning singles you don’t remember, like “Out of Your Mind” and “Not Such an Innocent Girl.”
In 1997 Victoria began dating Manchester United footballer David Beckham, and on July 4, 1999 in Luttrellstown Castle, Ireland, Posh and Becks tied the knot. Victoria has given birth to three Beckham boys: Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, and both Brooklyn’s and Romeo’s godfather is Elton John. (Their godmother is also Elton John. Kidding! It’s Elizabeth Hurley.) In 2007, Victoria and the lads moved to Beverly Hills, California, after David signed to play soccer for the Los Angeles Galaxy.
Looking ahead, you might find Victoria pregnant again: Both she and David have stated they’d like to have another child—particularly a girl. There could also be another reality show or another book, and there’s a planned reunion tour for the Spice Girls. Obviously, Victoria has many things left to accomplish before she becomes Old Spice.
Paris found herself in hot water this past year when she was busted for driving drunk. This led to her incarceration in Lynn Wood prison in Los Angeles for twenty-three days. Surprisingly, this event didn’t get much attention from the media (please note the dripping sarcasm). Since being released Paris has pledged that she is a changed woman who only wants to help the world become a better place. But she also plans to release another album, so we don’t know what to believe.
