Explanation of life

" From an e-mail forward "

Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of cancer. From all over the world he received fan mail and one letter asked, "why does God have to select you to get this dreadful disease?'

To this Arthur Ashe replied, "All over the world 50 million children start playing tennis, 5 million learn to play tennis. 500,000 learn professional tennis. 50,000 comes to the circuit. 5,000 reach the Grand Slam. 50 reach the Wimbledon, 4 to the semi-finals and only 2 to the finals.

"When I was holding the cup, I never asked God, 'Why me?"

"And today in pain, I should not be asking God, 'Why me?"

Happiness keeps you Sweet, Trials keep you Strong, Sorrow keeps you Human, Failure keeps you Humble, Success keeps you Glowing, But only God Keeps you Going.....

Want more e-mail space?

How much space is enough for your e-mails? 1 GB, 2 GB, 30 GB or 1 TB?
If you store all the spams and all the useless forwards you get from
your friends, I don't think you need more than 2GB. But wait, there are
e-mail services which provide you more than 2.6 GB than that of Gmail.

30gigs is the e-mail service provider which boasts of providing 30 GB of e-mail space for free. But it is invite only e-mail service same as Gmail.

Mailnation is an e-mail service provider, which is providing 1 TB (yes, 1024GB) of space, almost 400 times greater than Gmail. The best part is, it is not invite only ;-)

But, I suspect will these services survive for long? What will happen if they close down their service one fine day and all your e-mails are gone. Let's wait and watch!

But for me, I am happy with my Gmail.
