It is Time!!!

I have been working like an ass from 10 in the morning to 12 in the night. Personal life is screwed, fooding habbits are really bad, boss expects me to work harder, friends asking me "where the duck have you been", want to meet someone but sometime I don't have time and sometimes she is really busy. When is it time to say enough is enough, I will work the way I want to work??
People in western world never work so hard. Is it because India is still a developing nation and most of the things which we do depends or is linked to the west?? Be it market research or IT solutions or consulting or manufacturing, most of the clients are from the West. They don't work as hard as we do, believe me they don't. The whole of France goes on a summer vacation in July and August. When will we understand that the US of A is just another country like Sri Lanka or Chile?? When will we say Indians need not work for some western country?? I guess the time is coming very soon.
One thing which I can see is the people opting for call center jobs for US clients would decrease. With the sensex crossing 9000 points, foreign investments in Indian markets, manufacturing getting a boost, high growth in agriculture, high growth in mining and a great monsoon, the economy is bound to go up and people will tend to spend more and more. That means more people will get employed for providing services to these customers or shift jobs from the stupid shitty night call center thing to the day jobs of providing guidence and assistance to these new customers.
Another thing which I can see is that western economy is dependent on the growth on India and China, it is time when we arm twist the wester manufacturers and tell them "Ok boss this is it, we can provide this to you. You take it or we can start selling our products in Asia." India is now a healthy wealthy and w9ise economy. :-)
Oh before I forget. I love the song "The Reason" from the band called "Hoobastank" and this is for "The One" and for no one else. :-) Download it here.

Rains in Madras are Irritating


Now this is getting out of control. You can't drive, the roads are full of water and I am pissed. Life sucks on the road!!!

Me and Kini went out yestreday to meet Priya and the rain was painful. Other than fat cows on the roads there was water everywhere. Like Forrest Gump said "The water even came from the opposite direction." Kini became camera crazy and started clicking photos left right and center.

Can't even see what is on the other side of the windscreen. God enough of rains. Thank you. We don't want anymore.
I had heard a lot about Coldplay. Vikram sent me few songs. Uploading one. Please download from here. Beautiful World.
Thanks Vikram.
Update: Finally the trailers of Aamir Khan starer Rang De Basanti are out on TV. 10 seconds teaser with fields and Golden Temple on the back ground, sung by Daler Mehendi (I hate him though) in high pitch voice "Rang Deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Basanti". It was good. Looking forward to the movie. Read the plot here.

Music is Life!!!

Well after listening to few songs you feel like wow. I love slow music, fast music, no music, just music, gazal, jhatka matka, disco shishco, depends on mood. These days I am listeing to psychedelic rock and Tinka Tinka.
Well music tells us a lot of things. One incident I recall when we were in IIT.
My room was on the 3rd floor and at a secluded place. No one used to come there. So generally booze used to be at 356 Cauvery Hostel. We were few friends and dope, vodka and Pink Floyd. Kini is full out. He can't speak.
Kini-Maacha put Learning to fly da.
Everyone- Put it. Awesome song man.
Into the distance, a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning back
A flight of fancy on a windswept field
Standing alone my senses reeled
A fatal attraction holding me fast, how
Can I escape this irresistible grasp?
Can’t keep my eyes from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, i
Ice is forming on the tips of my wings
Unheeded warnings, I thought I thought of everything
No navigator to guide my way home
Unladened, empty and turned to stone
A soul in tension that’s learning to fly
Kini has his head down and eyes closed. Takes two shots of dope and says - Silence everyone. (Bangs his right fist on left hand) I know what I have to do in life. I want to start my busines in next 5 years.
We all - Wow man, we never knew music could inspire you so much. OK now pass the bloody shot.
I am uploading two songs. Virdi Tv Enjoy.
1. Tinka Tinka (Download)
2. Metallica- Unforgiven 2 (Download)

Tinka Tinka

Sayesha sent me this song few months back. It is from a movie Karam, the movie bombed on the box office but Patiala Pataka did blog about it when the movie came out.
I didn't have time and didn't listen to it that time. Just don't know why I never listened to this song. I listened to it few days back and has been running on my computer ever since. Sayesha this song is for you. Thanks for sending it.

Here it goes:
Tinka tinka, zara zara
Hai roshani se jaise bhara
Har dil mai armaan hote tou hain
Bas koi samjhe zara
Dil pe ek naya, sa nasha cha gaya
Kho raha tha jo, khab laut aagaya
Yeh jo ehsaas hai, jo karaar hai
Kya issi na hi naam pyar hai
Pooche dil thum ke zara
I have tried my best to translate in English:
Every blade of grass is filled with light
Every heart has dreams
We should understand it
There is a new craze in my heart
The dream which I had lost is coming back
This feeling which I have in my heart
Is this love??
The heart asks after stopping for a moment
Sometimes songs are just not songs they are more than that. And as Tullu says Life hai yaar!!!

Bluffmaster



















I want to watch Bluffmaster next. Check out the Trailer here. I hope it doesn't turn out to be another Bunty Aur Bubbly types silly movie.
Mast songs. Check them here. There is this song Say Na Say Na, its total disco-shishco song. Wakaw. Your feet start moving automatically.
Abhishek Bachchan looks really cool with this beard and rusty looks. And and and Kini is listening to hindi romantic songs these days and is also singing along. The song he was just singing today was:
Mujh Se Moohobat Ka Izhar Karti...
Kaash Koi Ladki Mujhe Pyar Karti...
If someone is listening please say, "Kini I do!!" Kini congrats you have broken the record, i guess she is the 57th girl in 2 months.
Forgot to add earlier.
I watched Notting Hill for the zillionth time. I think it is the best romantic movie ever made on planet earth. Julia Roberts (Anna Scott) looks like a Princess and Hugh Grant (William Thacker) is the nice guy (who will obviously finish first). Few quotes.
Anna: Can I stay for a while? William: You can stay forever.
William: I live in Notting Hill. You live in Beverly Hills. Everyone in the world knows who you are, my mother has trouble remembering my name. Anna: I'm also just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.
And the idiot says NO. Uff!! Anyway, later they end up together and like any other Hindi movie it has a happy ending. :-)
Its movie time folks.

Men are like

Well there have been too many Girl Psychology posts on the blog and I guess it was time when I also posted about MEN. My colleague sent me this mail.

Belive me people, I have seen live examples for every comparision. I have seen one friend of mine irritating a girl so much that she sais DUCK OFF to him on the street. And belive me that friend of mine has not changed. ;-)

  1. Men are like Laxatives, They irritate the shit out of you.
  2. Men are like Bananas, The older they get, the less firm they are.
  3. Men are like Weather, Nothing can be done to change them.
  4. Men are like Blenders, You need One, but you're not quite sure why.
  5. Men are like Chocolate Bars, Sweet, smooth, & they usually head right for your hips.
  6. Men are like Commercials, You can't believe a word they say.
  7. Men are like Department Stores, Their clothes are always half off.
  8. Men are like Government Bonds, They take soooooooo long to mature.
  9. Men are like Mascara, They usually run at the first sign of emotion.
  10. Men are like Popcorn, They satisfy you, but only for a little while.
  11. Men are like Lava Lamps, Fun to look at, but not very bright.
  12. Men are like Parking Spots, All the good ones are taken, the rest are handicapped.
We are like this. hehehehe...

Uncle Lift

When I go to office I go through a school area and I find kids putting up their thumb for lift. I find it great fun to give them a lift. Kids with huuuuuuuuge bags on their shoulders not even able to walk to school should be given a lift I suppose. I hate the Indian education system where there is lots of studying and lots of books. With very little focus on the overall development of the child.
I go to office late these days because of client calls and take the opportunity to drop my falt mate to his office. And today while coming back after dropping him, I found this kid who would be around 6 or 7 year old as thin as a stick with a bad as big as a TATA SUMO on his shoulders putting out his thumb for lift. I stopped and he jumped on my scooter. He started giving me directions, "uncle left, uncle right, go straight, uncle my friend stop stop, hey come jump in." I was like "what??" Another kid with a TATA SUMO on his shoulders?? That kid stood in the empty place in front of the scooter and started chatting to the kid behind about homework. I get irritated if someone does something like this, but this time it was funny. :-) Talking about home work and then Left-Right. He he he. It was fun. The school came and both the kids shot out their hand, "Tanku Uncle." A smart hand shake and off they went. :-)
Sometimes kids do teach you few things. Huge workload doesnt matter to them, all that matters is freinds and having fun in school. I wish I was in school again. It would be great if we could also have fun in office with huge workload.
And all you kids I am not uncle. Understand??? Brats!!!

I Love Magic

We drove 20 kms to Mayajaal and watched Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire sitting in the first row. Now this is called fan. Changing name from James "Virdi" Hetfield to Harry "Virdi" Potter for this week.
One line : "The movie is not for the weak hearted". Lots of scary stuff. He Who Should Not Be Named Is Back!!!! There is love in the air. Lots of animation. Harry Potter wins again and kids go gaga over him, AGAIN!!! :-) My camera phone rocks.
Not telling the story. Those who have read the book know the story and those who havent read the book please watch the movie. The best thing about Miss Rowlling is the art of story telling. I wish I was her child, would get to listen to a new story everyday. What say you??? :-)
Please don't watch it sitting in the first row. Its pain in the neck and in the bum too.
Sitting from left to right: my vacant seat, Ritesh Kini, Navdeep Mahajan and someone we don't know.

Surprise Part II - Worst Movies in Indian Cinema

Biggest Surprise: The guy who played Prank on Priya's blog mailed me. Here is the mail. He also gave me all the information where is he from. No need to screw his happiness anymore.
Welll what is the fun of watching a bad movie? You don't get a ticket in Sathyam and you watch it in Shanthi Theater. You save 70 rupees. Yesterday I watched Garam Masala.


Now it was a pathetic movie. Pathetic would be an understatement. The movie starts with John Abraham winning some photography award and Neha Dhupia dancing around him. He gets a free trip to Amreeka and Akshay Kumar is jealous. He goes into some house as house keeper and brings in 3 women, all air hostesses. Paresh Rawal comes in as a cook and tries to bring in comedy. The storyline is so bakwas that I can't explain. Paresh Rawal had dialogs like: "Singapore aa raha hai, Bangkok Jaa Raha hai...... " Anyway few takeaways though:
  • John Abraham can't be funny. (He looked good in only Dhoom)
  • Inorbit Mall in Bombay doesnt look excatly like an airport.
  • Akshah Kumar can tickle the funny bone.
  • Murder is not the worst movie I ever saw.

  • Murder is not the only movie I walked out of the theater
  • Hindi movie still has pathetic movie makers
  • Songs still come at the drop of a hat
  • Non of the girls could act (I don't even know who they are)
  • When you pay less in a theater you can walk away when ever you can.
  • Shanthi Theater looks like The 70's Show with all the neon lighting.
  • Akshay Kumar and Paresh Rawal have excellent comic timing but it is wasted in poorly written dialogues
  • TV standard actresses these days are getting more screen time than so called established item actresses, because they dont wear clothes
  • Is this really a Priyadarshan movie?????

If you are planning to watch this movie, I would recomend you take out your neighbour's dog for a walk. And yes life is full of surprises.

Surprise

Well lots have been happening on the blogging scene. Loads of comments spaming of Sayesha's blog, someone putting up comments taking somone else's name, someone deleting someone else's blog. Please check the below links to know more about the anti spamming and hacking issue. How to stop it and how to find someone hacking into your computer. DonTheCat gave me tuitions over the phone. Thanks sir. :-)
3. Attack on your computer, Ok forget all this. Lots of crap happening but few things do surprise you at times. :-) (
Today I was in a meeting at around 5.30 PM and I get a call from a local Madras number. I missed the call that time. Called back after 30 mins or so and SURPRISE it was one of my blogging friends from London. Arjuna has come down to Madras and is a cool character. Major masti marofy guy, lots and lots of leg pulling and is major fun reading his coments on junta's blog.
Sometimes I wonder why do few things happen? Is it always for some reason? What is the purpose of anything happening? Why did this guy call me? I don't even know him very well and I felt so cool talking to him. Is there some continuity somewhere? Don't know- Cant say much but one things is for sure HE up there is "The Master of Puppets"
Arjuna said, he had some major icecream lunch few days back. Ice Cream for Lunch???? hahahahaha. He said we should all meetup sometime soon and we can go for lunch or some coffee.
Sometimes the people whom you least expect to give you a shock, give you the shock of the lifetime. ( I would say) Shock can be source of major happiness or major pain. Life is full of surprises isn't it? and as Tullu says "Life hai yaaar!!!" :-)

How does IP Tracker work.

Something happened to Priya's earlier blog and she had to make a new blog. I think someone cracked her password and deleted it. Now he is trying to give her pain and is trying to showoff the skills of being too smart.
Priya this is the link to IP Tracker. All you need to do is go to your GO Stats page and check out who has come in from where at what time. Like you can see when the comment was posted by the fake Priya. Then put the ID there and find out where did the message come from. Very simple. We can screw them and Indian Government also has strict laws agaisnt hackers.
this is just a small campain to find out what is to be done if someone is trying to hack into your blog or website.
Don't worry uski maa ki toh. ;-)
Go for it Priya dont worry we can screw them very easily, believe me we can.
