Well Pottermania is contagious!!!!!!!!!!! Harry potter-- The Order of phoenix, released today. Harry potter is Mgea best seller in India atleast coz not many Indians are spendthrifts as far as books are concerned. But estimates suggest a pre-booking of more than 70,000 copies in India which is not a mean feat! and it might very well go up.
An interesting incident happened toay. I happened to accompany my friend to a book shop-cum- stationery shop. Its a kind of shop wherein one wouldnt expect novels and all coz mostly one would find only academic books there. I was pleasantly surprised to find lots of copies of the 6th volume of harry potter out for sale there. I asked the shopkeeper if they are offering any discounts on the purchase of the book. I asked him coz I had seen at many places including some web sites wherein they were offering upto 20% discount. On hearing my query the shopkeepr started laughing. " We are not selling the book with any discount coz the sales are very good." I interjected in between that i know many shops where they are selling books with a discount.He repleid, " Wahan dhanda achcha nahi chalta hoga. hamare dukaan par sabhi books jald hi bik jaayenge ( those shops might be incurring losses but we are not coz the sales are very good here and therefore no discounts.)" I couldn't help but chuckle. harry Potter and low sale? it seemed like an antithesis in itself. The reviews seem to be favourable. I cant help but wait to read it. any ways seeya!

Pain Relief medicines

Ultracet is a combination medicine. It contains opioid analgesics (nar-KOT-ik an-al-JEE-zicks ) such as tramadol (TRA-ma-dole) and acetaminophen (a-seat-a-MIN-oh-fen ) and is used to relieve pain. An opioid analgesic and acetaminophen used together may provide better pain relief than either medicine used alone. In some cases, you may get relief with lower doses of each medicine.

Tramadol is used to relieve moderate to moderately severe pain. It also may be used to treat pain caused by surgery and chronic conditions such as cancer or joint pain. This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.

Celebrex medication is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) which
relieves pain and inflammation (swelling). It is used to treat pain,
swelling and stiffness due to arthritis. This drug works by blocking
the enzyme in your body that makes prostaglandins. Decreasing
prostaglandins helps to reduce pain and swelling.

Fioricet brad medication is combination of acetaminophen, butalbital, and caffeine is used to relieve tension headaches.

Imitrex medication is used to treat migraine headache attacks once they occur.
It is not effective in preventing migraines. This medication is not to
be used for other types of headaches.
