Crap? .. not really

Sometimes journey is more important than the destination. When you have reached your destination and secured the results ......you figure out a new destination and the journey starts again.

It's fun this way.

Democracy?

Natwar got this right …. atleast!!

Concentrate on this list:

  • DR. MANMOHAN SINGH Prime Minister
  • SHRI ARJUN SINGH Minister of Human Resource Development
  • SHRI SHIVRAJ VISHWANATH PATIL Home Minsiter
  • DR. ANBUMANI RAMADOSS Minister of Health & Family Welfare
  • SMT. AMBIKA SONI Minister of Tourism and Minister of Culture.

All of them are Rajya Sabha Members. And we call India a democracy. Ironic?

I have just listed people who have made major policy decisions and who have been seen defending the government. Also, this is not an argument against Rajya Sabha. But these are not the people who have been elected by ‘We the People’. Is this right? I don’t know, but I don’t like it.

As far as Manmohan Singh is considered, he must be knowing that even Indra Kumar Gujral got elected for Lok Sabha. I don't know what is holding him back even after having the blessings of Madam. If spirit of Democracy is not important enough then atleast having a upper hand over people like Natwar and Arjun should drive to get elected for the upper house.

Pathetic!!

Eh!! Dravid

Time 11:45 pm
Dravid plays a forward defensive shot to a Chris Gayle delivery.

Time 12:10 pm
Dravid plays a similar forward defensive shot to a similar Chris Gayle delivery.

The only difference between the above two is that 20 deliveries have been tapped gently by Dravid during this period of time without scoring a run. Now it is tea time and he has managed to score a well defended 18 runs in 58 balls.

I say BALLS and change the channel.

Comics are fun!!

He he he he!! A perfect forward for my to be Shop floor manager friend. Read/see here.

Today morning I got up and read "The Gold Hunt" starring Mike Nomad. Ofcourse, published by Indrajal comics.

And since it is hot in Banaglore these days, so for sometime I felt like the school summer holidays have started and I am a kid with loads of comics to read :)

Do read the "
The Comic Project". So what if you are no more a kid and Indrajal Comics publication has stopped. Comics are fun. Keep reading.

Re: Non Prophet Organization

Just in case Scott edits my comment in reply to his post.
Here is what I said:

All this second hand information about what God said confuses me. Can the real god please show up?

I am a hindu and as per hindu mythology we have real god's appearing to preach us. Not that I believe in it but yeah it helps in making this discussion vague.

Now we have two points to debate:

1. Second hand account of meetings with God written and re-written by lots of hands.
2. God's own account written and re-written by lots of hands.

I think I have already moved away from the main question which is always good for overall health of the discussion.

The Pig Olympics is going to start in Moscow.

Can we send one from India? Just to participate you know, as usual. We as a nation don't lust for medals.

I have somebody in mind. Any sponsors ;)

Nerd Attention Deficiency Disorder... or NADD.

From Rands in Repose
NADD is present in your life when

1) You've checked out... you don't own a TV and it's unlikely you're even reading this column.

2) You enjoy your media/content in moderation. When I asked you to count how many windows were open on your desktop you either said, "One, my browser for which to read this article" or you made yourself a note to yourself to check this AFTER completing this column. In a previous age, you were the type of person who kept their pencils very sharpened.

3) You enjoy the content fire hose. Give me tabbed browsing, tabbed instant messaging, music all the time, and TIVO TIVO TIVO. Welcome to NADD.

Point two and three hold good in my case.

And why it's good news for me

1) Folks not afflicted NADD think those who are can't focus because, look at us, we're all over the place. PLEASE STOP CLICKING ON THINGS -- YOU ARE GIVING ME A HEADACHE. Wrong. NADDers have an amazingly ability to focus when they choose to. Granted, it's not their natural state and, granted, it can take longer than some to get in the zone, but when we're there, BOY HOWDY.

2) Weblogs are designed for those with NADD. The web digested into short little blurbs of information. NADD heaven. My guess would be that the population of regular webloggers is mostly NADD-afflicted. Otherwise, they'd be writing books... not paragraphs... at random times of the day... always.

3) NADD can advance your career... if you're in the right career. Ever worked at a start-up? Ever shipped software? What are the last few weeks like? We call it the fire drill because everyone is running around like crazy people doing random, unexpected shit. NADD is the perfect disease for managing this situation. It develops the skills to sift through the colossal amount of useless noise and hear what's relevant.

I am a suffereing (pun intended) from it. Are you?

Unwanted features

What is the use of a mobile phone?

  • Make and receive phone calls
  • Send/receive text messages.
  • A FM tuner (but radio city sucks so I may not opt for it)
  • A MP3 player
  • Extra slot for a SD card.
  • If you are a high end user you may want to sync your e-mails and calendar with your PC.

But why will you want a stupid CMOS camera on your phone? I don't have a use for that so why should I pay for it.
One of the reasons why I still have my Sony T230 (apart from money money money) is that every phone with the feature set listed above comes with a Camera which I do not want to pay for.

For me that camera is like:
  • A Vaccum cleaner with a TV attached. You will not get bored while cleaning.
  • A Fridge with ringtones, You open the door and it plays ringtones.
So Sony T230 lives on.

Cured?

No constipation? Relieved ?

Now sing this song, again from Himesh Reshamiya Bhaiya.

zara jhoom jhoom zara jhoom jhoom
zara jhoom jhoom zara jhoom
tu hi arzoo hai tu hi mera hai
jehan-o-jiya pe tu hi sanwaar hain
dil mein macha di tune dhoom dhoom
zara jhoom jhoom zara jhoom jhoom
zara jhoom jhoom zara jhoom


Are you ..

.. still struggling with constipation?

Remedy # 2 ( courtsy my kid sister)

samjho na kuchh toh samjho na
aalam betaabiyon ka
kaise tumko bataayen
dil ki pechida raahen
chaahen tumko hi chaahen
samjho na kuchh toh samjho na

Jhalak dikhla jaa and constipation

Agar aap ko potty theeks se nahin ho rahi.

Agar aap roj subah bahut zor lagan ke baad bhi pet saaf na hone ki shikayat karte hain to Himesh Reshammiya Bhaiya ne bahut hi accha gana banaya hai.

Isko sun ne se potty acche se hogi.

English translation:

If you have constipation then you should listen to this song from Himshe Reshammiya.

Jhalak dikhla jaa

Jhalak dikhla jaa

Jhalak dikhla jaa

Jhalak dikhla jaa

Ek baar aaja aaja aaja aaja aa ja

Ek baar aaja aaja aaja aaja aa ja

Ek baar aaja aaja aaja aaja aa ja

Ek baar aaja aaja aaja aaja aa ja

Deedar ko tarse ankhiyan Na din guzre na kate ratiyan

Deedar ko tarse ankhiyan Na din guzre na kate ratiyan

Jhalak dikhla jaa

Jhalak dikhla jaa

Jhalak dikhla jaa

Jhalak dikhla jaa

Ek baar aaja aaja aaja aaja aa ja

Ek baar aaja aaja aaja aaja aa ja

Ek baar aaja aaja aaja aaja aa ja

Change..

A new look for the blog. Still lot of work before this template is perfect.

Daddu tum lift mein hote to kya hota?

First the disclaimer:
Even after studying in a Private English Medium school,mugging Rapidex English speaking course and having a Grandfather who was a double MA in English, I confess that sometimes when I speak in English "IT MAKES NO SENSE AT ALL".

But even with this low level of skill, I want to ridicule the lesser mortals.

Here are two samples-->

Scene One:
Location: Stuffy lift in my ofc
Time: 10:30 AM

Bald & fat Manager to his female team member : "You are not pushing for it these days"
Girl smiles.
Bald & fat Manager again : " I will push it for you"
Girl smiles again.

Please draw your own conclusions based on whatever you think the context was.For sanity sake I will assume that it was about late night conference calls.

Scene Two
Location: Stuffy lift in my ofc
Time: 7:30 PM

HR Girl to smart guy: "Hi !! How are you?"
Smart guy to HR girl: "Good."
Lift door opens.
Smart guy to HR girl: "I will catch you up."
HR Girl to smart guy: "Sure, bye!!"

Daddu tum lift mein hote to kya hota?

Happy holi

Hmmmm...so the terrorists blasted a few bombs in Varanasi.
My home town.

There are communal riots happening in places like Goa and Laddakh.


An ass of a leader is inciting people to kill a cartoonist.


All is not well.


But we know this is true -->



Happy holi!! :)
