Digital Intimacy ...

"Change is the only constant", what a truthful statement is that, there were times in our country where a very young bride and a groom will be made to marry, as early as 6 and 4 years of age, they will be forced into a relationship and without a choice they have to like each other and live with each other forever, and we never complained at that stage, there were no women welfare associations, there were not child rights commission, no human-welfare societies and yet we lived a very happy and a peaceful life.

Then a new generation blossomed and still there wasn't a question of choice, parents would decide the partner with whom their son or daughter should spend the rest of their life and it was famously named as "Arranged Marriage" and that institution worked like charm and it had its own pro's and con's and unfortunately the cons were never discussed in public and it was all good-happy-times. The flaw with this initial version of "Arranged Marriage…

A Decayed Nation ...

I am sure 95% of the folks who read this post would be from the software industry, an industry which does not expose its employees to interact directly with any government organization or sector as there is no need for that, even on the personal front, most of the folks in IT do not get frequent situations to interact with a government body, so I can safely stamp the community of software engineers as "Government Ignorant Crowd". We are a bunch of "easy-goers", we lack the power of "questioning", if you touch your heart and say, we IT folks hardly "bargain", unlike our dad and granddads did. Ok why am I saying all these ? Because ...

I am the treasurer for my apartment which has 200 odd houses, so I have to deal with a lot of public money (in lakhs) every month, I am accountable and answerable to that public fund and hence I have to be super dooper cautious before spending every rupee, though we are a group of 9 members and always take collective…

IPL 4 Teams - An Analysis...

So the much awaited IPL 4 auction is over and we now have given a new look to all the teams, lot of shuffling has happened, folks who were once opponents are now teammates, on the whole it’s a brand new season and an action packet tournament is guaranteed. Here are my comments and review of each and every team, of course it is going to be short and crisp.


Royal Challengers Bangalore - Like how they are not willing to release Cauvery Water, they are not ready to release Virat Kholi from their team, yes that guy is in super form but he is not consistent. Mohammed Kaif is a surprise pick, may be Mr. Mallya wud have been in heavily drunk, and he would have asked "Hey are we picking Kaif?" and his obedient employees have gone ahead and purchased "Mohammed Kaif", but in truth he would have meant "Katrina Kaif". On the whole this team has lost its sheen, and they are not a solid team this season.
Strengths: Zaheer, Dilshan, Vettori Weakness: Rest of the team and No…

Series Drawn ... Questions Raised ...

The recently concluded test series in South Africa did give jitters to many Indian cricket fans like me, it is good to be called as the No 1 test cricket team in the world, but do we really have the potential of being the "World Beaters" is one question which will haunt every true and honest cricket fan, yes, I do not talk about fanatics here. Our Indian cricket team did not exhibit even 5% of qualities to be stamped as the No 1 test team in the world. Though the series has been drawn, it did not fail to expose the weak links in our team and also it once again proved, how this young team is heavily dependent on their old war horse Sachin Tendulkar 
Our team landed in SA with some percentage of over confidence and if I have to quote what Harbhajan said during the pre-match press conference before the start of the series - "We have not come here to prove anyone that we are the No 1 , we have a quality side which can take any bowling attack for a task, Steyn will be treated…

A Logical Beginning...

Start of a logical new beginning, also it’s time to renew the ethics of life in the name of resolutions, here we welcome a brand new year. Everyone resets the past and vouch for change and finally continues to do what they were doing, yeah, we are mere humans. I just took one resolution a decade back on a New Year day, and I am proud that I still stick on to that resolution, that is nothing but "Never take any resolutions on new year day"

I wanted to be more active on my blog this year and would want to write more humorous columns, instead of writing boring posts like this. I have a dream and I know I have to work hard to achieve that dream, but my problem is, I am so attached and fascinated about my dream and hence I sleep a lot, no I am not sleep deprived in any sense, my wife knows that better, I am a person who goes to sleep in a jiffy moment I lay my body at 180 degrees. I don’t chew anything in my mind when I go off to sleep, because I feel, I would be doing injustice t…
