Another Year, Another Wish. Welcome 2011

Life is full of suspenses and surprises
A collection that can be called incidents
Incidents which come from coincidences
Strange acquaintance or accidents
Some of them are good & some bad
When taken collectively for the year
All 365days every minute every second
Becomes memories for the year and
The beginning of a every new year
We are only left with these Memories
Memories of life, for the span of a year
We could only wish things be good
And this year as the year ends and
A new beginning awaits, let us wish the same
A prosperous, joyous, Healthy and safe Newyear...
The clock is ticking , so is the heart...
Wishing all my friends a Happy Newyear

21ways to avoid Blood Shed in Sholay & solution for Gabbar Issue

Discalimer: Whatever written is my views and ideas about a movie, irrespective of however big that movie is..Read only if you can bare, Kthnxbai.

Well, Sholay is one of my favourite movies. Today also i watched it and the same will happen next time also if it comes on the television. After watching sholay so many times, i got a feeling now that i could have done something to avoid blood shed & end up Gabbar issue.

Gabbar is one of those Classic Old school villains with a unique style, but same passion as any other bollywood villain. That way there were several opportunities where gabbar could have been caught easily.

Let us take a look at it now:

1) Asrani - The famous jailer, Gabbar should have been put in his jail. Smartness of his Intelligence Units will make sure that Gabbar will never leave.

2) Surma Bhopali - The then Business tycoon. Money is one thing that he cares for & If someone has informed him the Bounty Offered for Gabbar's head, he might have used his business brain to Catch Gabbar.

3) Jai & Veeru -If they had show loyalty to their job, then they can be part of Gababr's Ganag undercover.

4) Insulting Gabbar- Thakur should have never insulted a respectable thief like gabbar,  His arrest and all if kept confidential, then Thakur will be smoking with his own hands now :D

5) Real Estate- Gabbar should have been given some ideas about real estate so that he might have stopped looting and might be a Real Estate Mafia head now.

6)Underworld - Gabbar should have been made Father of Underworld (Godfather).

7) Games - Thakur should have planned for a Ramgarh games & made Gabbar the organizer which might have solved all the problems.

8)Swayamwar - The best war tactic is to introduce a lady into the scenario, create some chaos about the marriage, a competition and Game over-Gabbar's caught.(Rakhi should be the bride)

9)Basanti - She could have tried seducing and cheating Gabbar by letting police catch him.

10) Reality Show - The song Mehbooba Mehbooba shows Gabbar's love for art and artist. Thakur could have produced a Reality show and made Gabbar the judge.

11) Twist- If viru had tried line maroing Helen instead of Basanti, Gabbar might have stopped eveything and might have become like devdas.

12) Bad selection - Thakur should have selected two girls instead of Jai & viru to make things easy, Like bond movies.

13) Weapons - Could have tried using some kerosene and burnt gabbar on the mehbooba song.

14)Party - Thakur could have organized a party on Holi(a pool party) & invited gabbar to it..The rest is simple..Infront of alcohol there is no difference between Thakur and gabbar. Equality comes & so is Peace.

15) Politics - Thakur could have involved politicians and ended up gabbar, the way they deal with all gunda's .

16)Bigboss- Let me put this straight, inviting gabbar into Bigboss is pretty simple and get his ass kicked there  is much more easier.

17)Drug overdose- Lots of celebrities have died over Drug over dose, Basanti could have used her brains to achieve this target.

18) Dance India Dance - While Basanti was dancing, she could have made Gabbar dance with her & Keel him in between the dance. (part of the plan)

19) Soaps- Thakur could have invited gabbar to his house & make him watch Ekta Kapoor's Soap. Gabbar will end up in suicide.

20)TII - This is India, there is 574265725786257867976 ways to kill gabbar, without giving him even chance to Think.

21) Gabbar the otherside - If they have made Maniratnam to direct that movie, then Gabbar must have been a hero & no violence. Yes that's what i am talking abt..

They gave the movie Direction to the wrong man, Deifnitely wrong director.

Well, after watching Sholay for the zillionth time, these were the crazy ideas which came to my Mind...May be i shouldn't have watched it again :D

CWG and a Techie

Disclaimer: Am not a news fan or TV addict & Twitter is the place where i check all headlines.

I don't watch TV much and when i watch i watch Football or racing or Nat Geo or Discovery or some movies. These all are random. Many times it happens that TV will be working and i will be busy with my laptop. A person like me for whom TV is more of a random entertainment, i watch news in office cafeteria since that is the only channel played here. Now news means, it is always chaos by the media / news channel. Instead of reading a simple news, this news channels discuss it in a way for months and make it a trending topic even if it is not worthy. Earlier i used to like the shows on news channel where they used to conduct some good debates, now it is more like a megaserial, with a different story every day rather than a continuous one.

Past some months i have reduced going to the cafeteria due to the main so called controversial news which was supposed to be a good news for us. yes some years back when i heard that common wealth games is coming to India, i thought India will be hosting a world class event soon. Time passed by and some months back, i start hearing about common wealth games. The scary part of the story was that, the amount of money spent on the games. When i heard about the budget, the first thing which came to my mind was the tax paid by me in the last year. I became happy, atleast my small contribution is also there in the games and so my mind started saying "This should be one of the best events". Later i realized that nothing much was done with the amount i heard. Instead news they started showing the way they had organized things at double cost and a major scandal fuming. News became a Scary dream to me.

For a person like me who is not so close with the news channels or in my words, i would like to watch tv to relax, so not much news channels this became kind of bugging.Whatever media you read or watch, the first thing which you can see is our Nation's name and those hardcore criticized comments. What is my role in all this? I never tried to disgrace my country or my people. Why am i also included in this? As an Indian every single Indian is "not - so" lucky to get a bad credit for the shame created by Politicians and bureaucrats and media who exposed it and made it a hype. The news which was there in the national news dailies started becoming headlines of International dailies.

I can say not just the media, but we gave this negative publicity knowingly or unknowingly. When each of us tweeted about this event(CWG) with hashtag(CWG) this started becoming important. Soon this became a trending topic worldwide. Now medias across the world use twitter for news and suggestions/feedback's from people or giving updates to people. The negatively trending topic that we created became a topic of discussion all over the world. We got freedom of speech, but when we talk about something happening to our nation and that too in a bad way especially in internet, we should alway's think about the after effects.

I am not blaming anyone in this post, i am blaming myself for whenever i used a #CWG hashtag, i did a wrong job. If politicians and bureaucrats did some dirty job, we did market it knowingly or unknowingly. Let us be more careful with public forums like twitter and discussions here on. India is our country & being an Indian we are responsible to show a positive picture of India. Take a small leap, Let it make a Difference.

Twitter Infected- A new Security Flaw which has Infected Twitter

I never wanted to write again and again about a social networking site or a micro-blogging site, but once again Twitter is what made me write this.
 Twitter user's who tweet or reply to tweet or whoever clicks on the twitter webpage will see an error message page, which is a third party page.

Twitter is hacked and the hacker had a script injected into it that whoever click on twitter's Web interface will be taken to a totally different website like below.

The reason for this is a script which is getting executed on mouse click like below:

In the above image you can see a script. The hacker has kept the Font to the maximum pixels size and on mouse over the script executes which takes u to a different website without your consent. This is a new security flaw on twitter.

Better to change the password when you login next time and when you find the site is working fine.
Please don’t click anywhere on twitter until u see the above script ie “Latest: “style fonet=9999999999px” http:\\u002f\\u002ffl9A7” near your update box .

Why are we even Independent?

Chennai has given several awesomely funny experiences.This story is based on a true life incident.
Disclaimer: The names or keywords used here are as per my views, bare it.

As usual, i woke up and started M49 chase. My day begins with M49 . Contrary to normal, the pilot has changed. It was pretty crowded and i found a place to park myself. Things were Okay until i heard the Pilot yelling. He was yelling to some other pilot. The issue here was someone overtaking through left side. The pilot looked innocently cruel like the Hollywood villain. Age will be above 50 & he is not at all happy with this word. Now what is my fault in that. 45 mints of journey and that too in a crowded bus. Oh! I forgot to specify one thing, am traveling in a bus and since i travel in bus, all drivers will be renamed as Pilot.

The bus was so crowded and passengers were hanging on the doorstep and half of their body is outside the bus. Still the Pilot was not at all concerned about all this. He was more focused in driving the bus Zig-Zag when someone comes through left side. Now there is some problem on passengers side too, i accept that. But morning time all people will be going to office, school, college etc. The public transport is a good option, one way reduce traffic and reduces pollution.

If the people who travel by public transport start using their own vehicle, then i think there won't be enough space on Chennai roads even to walk. People who are traveling in the public transport is playing with their life at times. Not just inside, even people who are using other vehicles are afraid of the City bus and the way they drive. No one is concerned about how a Govt bus is being driven, not even the police. Here i have seen many times that city buses ignore red signal and this causes confusion. Still no action is taken against them.

When the Govt has started city bus service for voter's or citizen's to travel, does it mean that the city bus Pilot never need to follow traffic rules? Why is it that Govt is never concerned about how things work, after they start something? The amount invested on these resources is very big, but maintenance and the way these things are used is pathetic. I think, this is the same case with almost all Indian cities.

Everywhere the tax payer's money is used by govt. The tax payer has to pay and use all these services, i ain't cribbing. But the politicians never had to pay for any of these services and now they re going to get a salary hike. If this is what is going to happen in this country for some more years, then definitely we will be able to see empty M49's. India is not short of talents or skilled employees, but all of them preferred to have better life living outside India, even if it is little more costly.

I am a person who loves my country and is proud about it. But our leaders may force me to run away from here.....
Oh! Its time to sleep now, Need to catch my M49 tomorrow early morning...

A letter from an Addict

In a beautiful green environment, we never feel sitting at home and surfing the web. Instead we go out for a walk or enjoy the environment. When you are having option of Polluted traffucked roads and cement sky scrappers only, what will you do? That is when human's go behind their instinct's. The instinct which they got since when the human race began, hunting for options or making new options. This is the origin of Social networking or living online. Going to mall or going to pubs or disco's are also some options. But finance plays a spoil sport in the latter ones, where as surfing web is always best option for people who want to stay at home, don't want to spend much money. Internet in India is much cheaper than the common commodities here, while compared to early years. In a virtual world, where you can use an name or ID and surf, chat with people, do shopping, play some environment friendly(or so called) games, do some farming. Be the head of the Crap Mafia and more. Forgot to mention, the latest one i noticed is MAYOR. This is the latest update which is getting trendy. Internet or Social networking sites are places where some people fulfill their dreams, some people release their frustration, some find their life partner's, some do business and while some others use it for learning and more..

I will say, neither this world is mad, nor the people: but the system and the less choices they get make them live in Virtual reality.

Some of the famous terms on virtual world is Blogger's, twitterer's, facebooker's, buzz, Wave and the notorious of the online community The Orkutiya's. If this is the people part, then there are some famous keywords which had become part of everyone who surfs net. Google, Tweet, Update, Follow-Unfollow, Scrap, Wall, comment, Like-Dislike,fan,testimonial,DM,hashtag, Farmville, Crop, Ribbon, Vampire, Mafia and latest and most trendiest as per me Mayor.

Internet was considered as a sophisticated thing some years back, but what made the revolutionary change? Is it people / broadband? Neither, it is innovation, Social networking is one of the most important innovation. Now a decent social networking site is not just your place for fun, but if used in the right way can be a place for earning and living. Or you can use it for ad's , selling, buying , promoting your product(music, band's) etc. A poll on any of the social networking site will give you the statistics about your question and the result is "Directly from the people". Directly from the people means, a unfiltered group of people. It can be a closed or an open group, depends on what kind of result we are expecting.

On the other hand,Social networking has become the favorite playground by hacker's, malware specialists and spammers. These people use Social Network as the best way to communicate as well as to send infections. This is like a Coin, with two ends. In my words "For every good innovation, there is a worst Infection waiting". Consider ourselves, all of us are mortal's and we know one day we will die. But we are not afraid of that. Likewise, Social networks may be vulnerable and infectious; but staying away from them or not using them is never a solution. Instead use them, savor them and feel the taste. This can be a new passion or a new way of living.

It's all about Options, We got infinite number of options. how and when to use them is what we should learn. If we learn that, then Social networking is the best.

Addict :)

PS: My friend's says that am addicted to some social networks, even though i dont think am an addict:P

Life of Jack: A story of a Gentleman

Happiness is not a season, it is a moment. There will be various reasons for a person to be unhappy. Mr. Jack is not at all an unhappy person. Jack always likes to be in a state of Trance. To attain Nirvana or state of Trance some people do consume some C2H5OH, but for Jack it is not needed since he is made of that. When in nirvana, he is the happiest and make sure that people around him also is happy. Now why Jack? What is his significance here?

So one day, as usual jack was resting on his favorite place in Singapore. Its late night and people are around. Jack likes people around, especially people confused in buying things and saying those good comments after seeing him sitting. The looks on their faces, it says "i want everything , but i don't want to pay for any of them". The classic human nature in a way, to dream about getting things free of cost.

Jack saw a man rushing and in another moment, All he can see is darkness. There is no light, nothing is visible though he can hear people speaking. The man on the counter speaking about Dollars and offers. What about the gentleman who came rushing? Why was he rushing, this thought made jack little confused. After sometimes, he realized that he is on an aeroplane, flying to some country. All this is happening without his consent. He is missing all the fun around. He is missing his friends Johny, Constantine, Brown, Evan etc.

The plane landed and Jack is still not free. He is worried of where he is taken. The state of no freedom surrounded by darkness is bad. He is in a car now, he is moving towards some unknown location. The car stops, he can hear the driver talking in some strange language. Some unknown , never heard language. "Now where am i" Jack tried shouting, but his voice never came out. Jack can feel someone carrying him. He tried peeping out, but he was not able to move. May be jetlag. The person carrying him has put him down. The question was Where am i and who took me here? Why? Jack knows, there is no answer for this question, he has seen many of his friends being taken away, but no one ever asked their permission. They also must have had questions like him. This was a known fact to him, Life is not immortal, it is going to get over sooner or later. But he never expected it to happen this soon. he remembered once johnny telling him the story of someone taking his cousin by mistake and dropping him home later.

Where has the darkness gone, how come there is a light. Now jack can see that he is sitting with some strangers. They are talking in some strange language. He never heard this language, may be Italian Mafia? No they are talking in english at times, their dialect is no where similar to Italian. Suddenly Someone Kicked Jack on his back. He can feel the power of the shot, moving his Disc. Jack tried crying loudly, his voice is not coming out. Those people are tearing his head and they are taking blood in glasses. Jack can feel his limbs getting light & darkness embracing him. He can't feel the pain anymore. Last thing he heard was "Cheers" and its all over. Now Jack knows why the gentleman was rushing. He bought him and now Jack will be staying in their intestines for them to attain Nirvana.

The life of Mr. Jack Daniel's is over here. A gentleman who lived as a king loosing his life in 25years. Yes This is the life span of a Jack Daniel's bottle. He was treated like a King for 25years and one fine day his life Ends. Still he is the King, King of all Whiskey's, Jack Daniels. born in Tennesey

For all Jack Daniel's lovers :P

Lost and Found

We knew since sometime, quite sometime. We know each other quite well, we are good friends, more than that. Some relationships can never be named. Yes that is what i wanted to convey.

Two friends who know each other since long time, but due to some reasons not able to be in constant touch. Now what is wrong with that? Nothing, we are the same like we were before. There is nothing like we need to be in constant touch all time.

Let me tell something about my friend, Knowing a person since longtime is awesome, especially when am able to predict what that person is going to do and am always able to spend sometime daily thinking about that person. A complicated, sweet, sophisticated innocent person. SO what is great about that, there will be lot of people like this, but why this person. Irrespective of difference in opinion and other things, we have never fought. We never got chance or may be that person was too sweet with me.

One thing i know is after every conversation of ours, we are happy, ateast i am.

Two different states, cultures, human minds who got some common things in mind and a unbreakable bond. That is what i think about it. We lost contact almost a year back and two days back we met online, we spoke. We spoke for long time, we spoke about different things, but never felt bored. I felt guilty for not keeping in touch because of unknown reasons.

Why am i writing about this?
Its simple, I writes about things in my heart and this one, am never able to understand. The positive part is understanding or patience to listen to each other. Two hard rock fans, who have similar thoughts, but trust me i love this person.
If i ever get a chance to do something for this person, i will be the luckiest to get that opportunity.

I have heard people talking about how they lost contact and how they lost their friends, but as per me, am lucky in this. I also know people trying to define relationships and come to a conclusion. May be we have never tried this or may be we never wanted to do so, but my experience: Not all relationships are to be named or defined. There are some relationships which are above friendship and it is better not to name them or not to find what they are. Just let those relationships as they are, because they are the purest.

The God of Cricket on twitter, will he create record here?

Twitter is a place where you can see celebrities, media, High Profile people and even now Cricketers. This is a single place where you can see the live updates of these people. For a common man, this is sometimes too much a reason to use twitter. For media, this is a place to make news, infact the media collect feedback's from people in twitter. The influence of twitter is so much that, it is changing the way things used to work.Guess what, God joined twitter today, by God i mean "The God of Cricket", Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar.

A common man may be using twitter for either micro-blogging or may be for his small business or just for fun. A celebrity or a politician using twitter, they have to tweet carefully. Each statements they make here is going straight to the people. We have seen examples of these in the past months.

When twitter is having a negative effect at times, then why to use. This is the question you should know. What you have to tweet is important rather than whether you tweet or not. People follow or unfollow based on the tweets and kind of interaction.

Recently i have noticed many cricketer's on twitter. They have got plenty of people following them, today The God of Cricket Sachin Tendulkar joined twitter. Now how did i know it is real sachin, The person who introduced is Atulkasbekar the super lensman. But the account is not yet a verified account. Though nobody is sure whether it is real account or a PR account, the number of followers is increasing very fast. In an hour, more than 1000 people are following him & there is a high probability that this will become a trending topic in twitter and also on the media.

The people in twitter are happy seeing Sachin's twitter handle and profile, but none sure whether it is real sachin or someone else. The reason being the very first tweet of SRT said "Finally the original SRT is on twitter n the first thing I'd like to do is wish my colleagues the best in the windies" and people are damn sure that a person like SRT will never tweet like this, but since Kasbekar announced SRT's arrival on twitter and all the updates are being sent from a blackberry, it will be SRT only. The handle of God is "Sachin_rt" and this will be the most watched handle in coming days. Twitter is always in news and now it will be most watched, atleast in India. hope this is for good. :)

Life was a bitch, I Tamed it!

A post after a long time. I took a break from blogging. Guess what, it wasn't intentional. Past some days i am going through a packed schedule, not getting time for anything. I will give partial credit to the hot weather too.

There are many blogs which are pending and most of them are travelogues. I want to post them,but not getting time for that. Now time management is something i want to learn. I am getting enough and more time to manage my official work, since it is all about my career and passion. The problem is personal life and activities such as blog.

Let us rewind my life 2 years back.
Location: Pune
Job: Careless easygoing party guy, a biker and a techie

A easy going guy who doesn't have any order in life. The only pain in my life was office, the weekly off's. We were a gang, 7 men gang in office. The work environment and nature of work put some restrictions on our life. There were very less chance of 7 of us getting off on the same day in a week. To compensate with this, we used to meet daily, Hang out daily. Drinking is not a good habit, drinking without a time set is a bigger problem. The nigh shift and sleeplessness made us start a new habit. Drink and sleep. We stopped it eventually, we changed it to play cricket after shift or go for a ride after the office and sleep. Saturday and Sunday were party days, meeting up with friends etc. Another activity was long rides on bikes. We were a biker gang, all biker freaks. IT was totally awesome life, but then career thoughts came in. Opportunity knocks and i accepts, have to leave Pune. Lands in chennai, the first threat announcement in flight "The Temperature outside is 34Degrees". The flight landed after 1am and i never expecting that amount of heat.


Location: Chennai
Schedule: work in nights, sleep in the morning, even it is hot.
No activity here, not much friends here, the only option was office, Entertainment, work, learning that became my life. Accepted the fact that this is the best option when the question is career. Accepts it, still keep going to pune in between to meet up with friends and enjoy. Time passed by, got promoted, made some very good friends in chennai.Then twitter invaded my life and things changed again. I became a total social animal. Started attending tweetup's(Twitter get togethers), met people and there number of friends started. Eventhough this place no where near to Pune regarding the weather and fun part, the friends made me feel good. Now got used to this place and life here.

Now you saw a small part of life and the changes which happened. Human's are so adaptable to change, sometimes selfish when it comes to their personal benefit. Being a human, i also did that while coming to chennai. But still me and all my friends meet. We meet mostly for all Newyear's or whenever all of us get leaves. Distance never becomes a challenge, if the friendship exists.

Life is something which changes. There is no way you can live a life at a constant speed. From the time we are born till whatever we are now, life takes many twist and turns. The point is we should accept those twists if it is good for us. We will have to sacrifice somethings for accepting the twist though. Now when someone asks, "How is life dude?" My answer is "Life is a Bitch, I tamed it".

If i can adjust, if i can accept the truth and doing so if i didn't loose anything other than growth in my life; i am right, i have tamed it. Taming it doesn't mean my life is set, there will be more challenges and these challenges are what makes me keep going. Without thrill, there won't be any fun...

I wrote this blog, because many people asked me about my google status message & how it happened. This is the reason for that status message. May be i am wrong or may be this is my destiny, but definitely everybody will be getting a opportunity which if used will turn good.This won't be acceptable to all, but this worked for me & this is the reason for the status update...

Every moment is precious, live it.

World Water Day: Save Water

Water is the most valuable resource and the most passionately contested.Water is one among the five elements as per Hinduism.Water is a colorless, odourless liquid which is inevitable in this Universe. All living beings need water to live and sometimes Water causes Death too.

Today is World Water Day. Save water is a motto that we should make practical rather than saying it. Instead of wasting water by keeping the taps at your home/office/street open, remember to close them after use. But these are just basic things, What about polluting Rivers and Sea's? Why there is no plan to stop? There are many organizations who are fighting against pollution and still nothing happens. It is sad to see the natural resources being converted into the Waste Dump-yards. This is the case of Rivers all over our country.

These organizations have a limitations, what about we the people? Are we ever trying to do something to protect these River's? Whom should we blame for all this? We the human's, so called Sophisticated and Intelligent lot. Our experiments and greed for money are one reason, we are constructing new Sky Scrappers by filling the small rivers. I have seen this scene in places like cochin.

People are complaining about scarcity of water and many of them are paying/per litre of water they drink. How ironic it is, You have Water sources lakes, rivers, oceans, You Destroy those and later on You are paying for whatever you destroyed. Still no one realizes what they have done.

Sometimes the way this world is developing is scary. On the name of Development and luxury, we are forgetting about our nature and natural habitats. We are even suffering because of that, in different ways. Even nature had started showing its hate on us by natural disasters which is happening more often. The mother nature is hurt. We human's the most intelligent and sophisticated species is ignoring all this and living life as though nothing happened, i think this is one positive attitude of Human's, forget past and move forward.

Some Tips to Save Water:

Try to make yourself aware of Water and it's importance.
Stop wasting water in shooting Rain songs for Bollywood. Do that in a better way.
While constructing houses, try to use Rainwater storage & recycling it.
Stop constructing buildings by Filling water-sources.
Stop Polluting rivers and other water sources by dumping Waste.

One last word. Water is a natural resource, not a man made invention; Preserve it.

Rendezvous With a Shashi Tharoor - Chennai Tweetup

Twitter is one of the fastest and easiest Social networking platform in the world. Twitter can even be called as "The New World Order". Freedom to express & reach is what makes it unique from others. One single update in Twitter can reach millions, which includes celebrities and Top Officials and even members of Legislative Assembly.

 Me and my fellow twitterer's from Chennai were lucky enough to get a chance to have a Tweetup (twitter users meeting) with Mr. Shashi Tharoor, that too in a short notice. Mr. Shashi Tharoor is the Indian Minister of State for External Affairs. . Formerly he was the Senior Advisor to the Secretary-General of United Nations. Apart from this, he is a very rigorous writer. He had published several books and he is a columnist for many major News papers.

Someone came to know that Shashi Tharoor is going to be in Chennai and came up with the thought of having a tweet up with him. I was clueless and was thinking about ways. In another 30 mints, i got a Tweet saying, Tweetup with Shashi Tharoor, 8Pm - 10PM.

The Gentleman:
 On twitter:  @ShashiTharoor
  • A celebrity and popular twitter  639,430 Followers, Included in 3698 lists with precious 2883 tweets
  • He is the first Indian celebrity to cross the milestone of more than 1,00,000 followers on Twitter (Now he has over 6,39,430 Followers) 
Global Leadership

Shashi Tharoor was named “Global Leader of Tomorrow” by World Economic Forum  Davos, Switzerland

In 2009 Shashi Tharoor accepted the prestigious Pravasi Bharatiya Samman, India’s highest honour awarded to non-resident Indians

Shashi Tharoor is the Author of 4 fiction (including 'The Great Indian Novel') and 6 non-fiction books and 2 Illustrated books
  • "The Great Indian Novel" by Shashi Tharoor won the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for the Best Book Of The Year in Eurasian Region - 1991
  • In 2009 Shashi Tharoor was awarded the Zakir Hussain Memorial "Pride of India" Award and the Hakim Khan Sur Award for National Integration by the Maharana of Udaipur
For more information about the versatile personality of Dr. Shashi Tharoor as an Author, peace-keeper, refugee worker, human rights activist and now is the Indian Minister of State for External Affairs and a member of the Indian Parliament from the Thiruvananthapuram constituency in Kerala, kindly visit his website at


 A gentleman with good knowledge and a positive attitude. That is what Mr.Tharoor is. He was ready to take logical questions which can be answered rather than the political tongue twisters. He was there with us ignoring the 104Degree Fever fighting with him. With patience and pleasure he was answering the constant flow of queries. The way questions were coming in, we can understand how much respect people are having for him. He is my Idol and i will say he is the Cool dude in Indian politics. He may not be a hardcore politician, but he was a man who is ready to listen to people's grievances
and complaints and give them a solution or a better guidance. His tweets are inspirational aswell as Solutions. According to him, if used twitter is a good platform for direct queries and also conveying issues in a faster way to the authorities. Depending on how fast Internet users in India grow, this will also happen.

The session was not just a Q & A session, though it started like that, it turned out to be a group discussion. He was telling that there are lots of options for Young Entrepreneurs. Moreover he answered some questions which are kind of personal too. This was a remembarable evening in my life. I follow 2 Idols in my life. 1 is Shashi tharoor and 2nd is Sachin tendulkar. God gave me a chance to meet Mr. Tharoor. Hoping the same with Sachin too.

Some facts:

One thing was clear, controversies are created when someone answers questions unbiased. The tweetup's if kept without press and other disturbances can be a good platform to clear our doubts, especially when it comes to people like Tharoor.People say you are blessed, that is when you meet people like Shashi Tharoor, where you understand the difference between a uneducated Thug and a Educated Gentleman.

Life is Beautiful? Ain't it Ironical?

Day begins and people starts running frantically. Ican see happy faces, sad faces, angry faces and even people without an expression. Hardly i see fresh faces in the morning. All are busy, they got to go to work, they got tensions at home, the newspaper makes them angry or sad etc. None of us are happy about our life eventhough we are alive and got food to eat and water to drink, but every day we got something to complain about. Life is beautiful is Ironical at times.

 Why so Serious??

A quote The Joker said in the movie Dark knight, it is a very relevant question that joker asks. If you relate it to day to day life, the relevance increases. From the very moment we are born, we start living life, we start to adjust and compromise and learn how to deal with things. This thing continues till we die, Other than that the small happiness in life is family, friends and fun we have. This will be hardly One third of our total Living hours. An average human spent's more than half of his life working / trying to earn money. Whatever he earned, he wont be able to spend this on him, he has to spent on his family, relatives, friends, rent, mortgage and what not. Relationship is something which keeps life Cycle balanced, but when compared to a Single human being's life all these becomes burdens to. All of us are burden to each other in one way or other. May be i am wrong, but what i have seen and what i have learned is:

Work hard and earn, get married, have kids, welcome oldage, Dream about things which you haven't achieved and things you have achieved, Diseases (Optional), Wait for the Final call(Call from God), Embrace the earth.

I believe this is the life style of every human being or may be more than 3/4th of the Humans. In the end, when you look back:
what is that you achieved?
What good you have done to others?
What was the purpose of living?

Living being or Living-being is all the same.

On a day to day life, we do planning. Some do short term planning, some prefer planning in long term and some others are very clear about what they want to do and plan for their entire life.  Not all these plans gets executed and infact most of them become big Flop. But the planning phase never stops, why are we becoming Schemers? Are we happy after being a Schemer? I don't think so. May be the Almighty has Designed us in a way that we are never 100% happy about anything. This makes us the unique species.

Forget a single human, if we consider a community also there is the same problem. Caste wise, religion wise, region wise, Country wise, politically etc. But what is the outcome of this hatred which we had developed due to the selfishness?

Being the most intelligent and sophisticated species, Humans have achieved no happiness, but some way of making one self believe that "This is happiness". "Life is beautiful " is a quote which is Irony at times, i mean most of the times.

 Man vs Nature

Nature is also angry at us, the recent earthquakes and Tsunami warnings are good example. We destroyed nature to build buildings and many other things. Every time we say we achieved something, we never realized what we are loosing. Now earth is in a unstable state. The recent earth quake warnings are a very good example. "The world will come to an END" may or may not be true. But the recent happenings should be a good lesson for people to learn about some love. Whatever so called achievements we have is like an Oasis. We got a life which is undefined, it have only a Singin option and no Sign out option, unlike our Login screens. Once in you are Signed in (born) try to live life happily, find happiness in every small good deeds. Forget about your worries and try to lead a happy life. Instead of becoming a schemer planning big things and dying to earn money to make that plan happen, Live life happily, it may not be a 100% planned way, but definitely there will be happiness. Once you Sign out or your Session expires (die), then you don't have a chance to rethink.

Live life like a Man, Not like a Schemer.

You are Never Alone, Twitter is always Alive

Long time since i have written something. I ain't writting because i am good in Literature, but it makes me feel that you can utilise the free resource. I was not much into social networking other than creating profiles on various sites and adding up known people, an alternate way for being in touch. The one thing which kick started networking for me is Twitter. I respect and love twitter for that fact. When compared to Orkut(which is used by most indian's) and it's sick communities, Twitter i am able to see many sane people. Here also there are Bots and "Can we be Frans"(which i heard from many friends) requests.

On twitter things are more real. Whoever i interact with has replied to me irrespective of who they are. The people whom i interact with daily, or on a regular basis are awesome. The kind of interaction between us and the Trust that develops in a period of time, that i haven't seen elsewhere. This is the positive side.I have spoke to most of my twitter friends, met many of them and the get togethers which is a good way to interact and make the bond strong.

Why Twitter is better than Others?
In other social networking sites, you interact online. you never know who is on the other end, there is nothing other than adding people, joining communities and yeah Stalkers.

Twitter on the other hand, you really interact. you got Twitter meet up's called, tweet Up's. You are interacting with your friend from Virtual world really.
Twitter people use for different purpose like business, pleasure, promoting etc
Twitter has become a strong Source of information for people and media.
Twitter has become a way to get feedbacks when it comes to any enterprises, a "Direct Dilse"  way.
Twitter is good for fighting about injustice, you are fighting for a cause, like minded people do support you.
Twitter is a place where you can even set Human Alarms. :)
Twitter you got Freedom to think and write what you thought infront of a Big Audience.
Twitter 140 words is a blessing in disguise, for a quick feedback.
Twitter is live and alive with people around everytime, you tweet something, you get atleast a reply.
Twitter is all about updating yourself and others about yourself, which inturn develops a community of people who are ready to interact.

Whatever i wrote here is what i feel, my thinking and my experience. Now what you think and why i wrote something like this, i really don't know. Please bear with me if this is boring, but as i said Freedom of speech or Freedom to express :)

My definition from my personal experience of using Twitter is "You are never alone, There is a 140 char reply waiting for you"

Tweet retweet  and Retweet...

A dawn in the Dark

Time 4:30am                                                                                                        Place: Chennai
I am in my office terrace with a cup of coffee. There is no sign of daylight. Infact it is dark. Somewhere i have read "There is a day when darkness will fill the atmosphere & we will die for fresh air" this is what came to my mind after seeing the surroundings. Even the dawn will look ugly. You won't see the Sun's rays, We wont be having clear visibility. Everything will be abstract, everything fades. I am dying for fresh air, not able to breath in this dawn. Where has all the Fresh Air gone? What is it that is causing smoke? Came out of my office surrounding and understood that everywhere it is the same. it is not just in my office compounds, Its everywhere. All over. Everyone is having the strange look on their faces.

Well this is not a joke, not even a scene from the recent movie 2012. This was the scene in chennai today early morning. The reason was SMOG. This is not a natural phenomenon, but something created by Humans. Bhogi Smog, Today people here are celebrating Bhogi and this is the result of their celebrations. Bhogi is celebrated a day before Pongal & people burn all the wastes on this day. Due to the excessive burning, the smoke filled the atmosphere and it was causing the choking effect and low visibility.

Festivals are to celebrate and old traditions are to be followed, but i think it should be in an environment friendly way. The burning of these things to be done in a way that it won't become a nuisance for any one. The Smog today has even caused for delay of Flights because of low visibility. This might have put several travellers into trouble. Why to celebrate hurting environment when we got ways to celebrate in a environment friendly way. Let us hope that this Bhogi / Pongal is the last one celebrated this way & by next time, we will celebrate in a echo friendly way.

India is the land of Colours, Colourful Festivals and rich and varied traditions. But we keep forgetting about our Mother nature & the environment and surroundings. Let us make this place a beautiful place, let us be more environment friendly& Let us celebrate...

My prayers & condolence to all Haiti Victims.
Happy Pongal to all...

The Game of Life

Now a days either am thinking too much or am under some kinda immense pressure which even am not aware of. Was thinking about a new post which is still under construction. for the time being, my crazy mind & my rather freak style is writting which is victimizing this Zone. Yeah! i wrote something now,, Dont know what category it is..Somethings which felt in mind

Life is drifing, away from me
A moment of agony, a moment to think
Drifting down the lane, no control
Where it goes and why it goes?

Questions and negotiations, am loosing myself
Like lost in Some mathematical puzzle
Nothing i can do, nothing i can think
Happiness is all others want, why mine?

Perceptions and imaginations leading to dreams
Those Dreams which are crawling into my head
Eating my free traveling thoughts
Why me? why not Set me free?

Serenity and peace are drifting away from me
Answers is what am struggling to find
Why commitments, why no freedom
Let me live, Set me free

Reality,culture, custom & relationship
Somethings which came without our knowledge
The Gods whom we never worship, still they control us
The rule makers of game who makes me think

What if you loose? What if you win?
What you gets? Why you have to play?
The game of life, playing since birth
Wherever it ends, leaves no answer.

A puzzle or a riddle ridiculous at times
A question without answer
A thinking exercise, a game
An experience, a feeling, a notion that you are alive..Lifee
