Let others know the way you think

Is kasab really a minor???

I mean when everybody knows what he did last November, he put whole Mumbai on the toes almost for more than 5 days,he destroyed several innocent families & most importantly he, himself confessed that he has killed Mumbai’s top cops, still you are asking for more & more evidences? What even if he is minor? Look at what damage he has already done? In fact an adult can’t even dare to think about whatever crime kasab has committed. So what’s this minor claim is for?

Tell me one thing if suppose a 15-year old enters your house WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION & start annoying/disturbing/attacking you, will you ask & wait for any evidence? or you immediately shout at him?

I’m wondering why this case is taking so much of time when so many people have seen on TV footage what has happened. All those terrorists/anti-social elements who are following this Kasab’s trial case on TV must be saying “see even if you run around the roads of Mumbai & shoot innocent people for no reason, you won’t be punished immediately”

P.S. It seems now terrorist camps will encourage minors to enter this field & hire minors only. πŸ™„

Why Sometimes???

I really don’t know why sometimes I feel lonely,sad & upset. Life has already given me enough of things & there is actually nothing I should crib for. Very understanding, loving & the most wonderful parents, couple of very close friends,Yes, including very close female friends as well, a good decent job with very impressive profile, a good healthy lifestyle; what a person can expect from life more than this? Still I wonder why sometimes I start feeling extremely low, very upset & that too all of sudden.

Sometimes I feel probably because I miss my Dad who has the biggest influence on my life, or my Mom the most respected person, with Never-Give-Up attitude, but on the other hand I think I make sure that I meet them after regular interval. So then again the same question pops-up in my mind “Why sometimes I feel so sad, lonely & upset???”

Definitely, I’m NOT depressed or fed of my life but in fact I’m very happy & contained with my life, but I’m always left clueless what goes wrong sometimes suddenly & unexpectedly? Is that something happens to me only or it happens with everyone? Surprisingly it lasts just for few minutes & after that I’m again jumping back πŸ™‚ Then what makes me sad for that sometime. I know probably nobody can answer this question πŸ™

Are you desperate???

Guys read this… One of my friend forwarded me & I thought I should share this one with you…. πŸ™‚ I know its a lengthy article but read it, its really worth.

Even I’m not sure who is the original author but its very interesting…

What not to do when you are desperate about having a girl friend !!

My target readers

If you are a guy, age >=22 and still single….welcome to the club. Read this very seriously.

If you are a guy, not single then reading this is not worth your time.

If you are a girl there is nothing new here, I know most of you are omniscient.

On a random day, at a random place you come across a random girl and you get an instant feeling that she is the “one” for you. In the next few mins of talk, the inevitable question comes up “Are you on Orkut?”…Now that’s the beginning. You take her email ID, flick her chat ID from Orkut and start loading her inbox with messages, forwards, funny mails, quotes etc etc… You are always online for her and the moment you comes online the question pops up on her window, “Hey hi, wass up?” You always go to places where there is a chance of seeing her. You try to run in to her and pretend that it was accidental. You wear nice dresses and try to look good on the days when there is a high probability of meeting her. After that you take her phone number and start calling her every day. For the first few days she picks up the phone, then slowly she starts giving the busy tone and the next stage is total avoidance. But, you always believe that she is interested in you or at least you don’t want to accept the truth. For some of you the big day comes when you express your feelings to her and you don’t even have to wait for her reply, it is generally, “I did not see you in that way, can we be just friends?” πŸ™‚ Some don’t even reach that stage, they hide their feelings, but in either case one thing is common, the girl’s name ends up being the password for the next few months. πŸ™‚

As soon as they realize that they have reached the “age”, guys start trying to impress girls. Some try to show-off that they are smart and some have this weird belief that girls consider stupid guys as cute. Intelligence to innocence, being introvert to extrovert, being classy to messy, strong to weak …anything and everything, every guy has own strategy. I don’t know who came up with this quote “Everything is fair in love and war”, he (not she) must probably have been one of them. I don’t know why guys fail to understand that girls are smart enough to understand all these and why would not they? Even before they realize that they are “girls”, guys start hitting on them, one after the other, day and night, not allowing them even to breathe properly.

After reading till here some of you might be in dilemma whether you are really desperate or not. It’s very easy to come to a conclusion. Take a paper and answer the following questions in Yes or No

1. Whenever you see a girl walking on the road ahead of you, Do you increase your walking speed, walk past her and then turn back to see her face?
2. Do you become very conscious about what you are talking, when you are around with girls?
3. Do you try to be cool or someone else in order to impress girls?
4. Do you think staying clam or moody when in a group makes the girl think about you?
5. You ask a girl to join you for lunch or coffee; do you think a YES from other side is an indication that she is interested in you?
6. Do you keep staring at girls?
7. Are you ready to date a girl even if she is around with someone else as well?
8. Is “Girls” the main topic of all your discussions with your friends?

If you find even a single “YES” in the paper then YOU ARE DESPERATE. Be a man, accept it. πŸ™‚

Now the real question “What not to do when you are desperate about having a girl friend?”

Did you actually believe that I would come up with some solution or tips? Had I known it, would I be still single? It was just a trick to make you guys read this one. But, I have one tip though, first and foremost STOP being desperate. I know that it is difficult. At least try not to show that you are desperate. The rule is simple, “No one in this world cares for a thing that is easily gettable” and FYI girls are never worried about finding a guy and why do they have to? Did you ever come across a girl who never had a BF or never been proposed by a guy? If yes, then that’s a miracle, you met a rare species or an extinct one in this world.

If you got the tip that you wanted and don’t want to read any further it’s fine. But, I would recommend reading further. Trust me, keep reading.

We know that we are the ones who make the girls realize that they are important, treat them as if they are precious, tell them that they are beautiful and show that they are in demand. We buy them gifts, spend all the money we have, do their work, roam around with them all the time, carry their stuff and in the end what do we get in return? a few thanks and an offer to be a good friend. Do we need all this? If 1/1000 th of the time wasted on a girl is spent on a guy you will find a friend for a lifetime. Just play some game together or watch a movie, give him a cigarette or buy him a drink and that is it. Realize that spending a night with your friends drinking till everyone pukes, having a hangover throughout the next day is more fun than spending the same night with your girl in a pub buying her drinks, talking crap, listening crap, making some crap moves….. What ever.

I know that at some point of time in your life you might have realized all this. But, there is a need to educate the rest and also pass on the message to the future generations. I dream of a day when guys are in demand and girls start worrying about finding a guy. I hope the day comes soon.

If you are still desperate, you need a second read.

P.S.: To the girls: If you think that some guy is crazy about you and trying hard to impress you, please tell him immediately if you are not interested.

“Great job Man!!! I’m still searching who actually wrote this article but I guess really worth reading, so guys did you understand where actually problem is πŸ™‚ anyways I’m not saying stop all fun but in short have a nice time even if you are with your male/female friends, in either case… πŸ™‚ No but I dont mean Dostana πŸ˜‰ “

Here I’m sitting in the office – II

As the title suggests I’m literally sitting in the office late in the evening, its already 7.30. As I’ve just finished my client call, I’ve extra half an hour, so thought of posting this. Huh!!! So if you are regular follower of my blog then you must have noticed that I’ve never posted any article on the topic related to my office but today I feel it really deserves a post for my routine office day. And guess what? today I’ve got the reason. My company increased working hours by 1 hour so now onwards I’ll working for 9.5 hours officially. Wow!!! How nice it is!!! Atleast in recession time, something has increased… (Oh!!! Come on…Salary increments??? what’s that?) πŸ™„

Anyways that’s not our topic guys, or else some one will find out me & issue me a pink slip… πŸ˜‰ So guys lets get back to actual topic. I’m going to tell you one usual hectic day @ my office. So as yesterday, due to change in office timings, I decided to get up early in the morning. This is my usual task…no no you are getting wrong, I don’t get up so early but atleast everyday I decide to do so 😎 But this time I wasn’t having any option, so I got up around 6:40 in the morning. Oh!!! I mean that was the very first attempt to shut up my alarm then after a long struggle of almost 15 minutes I got out of the bed. I had my tea, quickly went through the newspaper, nothing very special except some photos of really stupid politicians. (Definietly that’s not special for me atleast) So finally around 8:45 I left home; which was already late as compared to my new office timings.

Facing all those chaos in the traffic & pollution I reached office, everything seems to be normal in the office, I checked my mails (That’s the first task I do early in the morning by logging from home but today I thought why to check mails from home as I’m already going to office early… 8) Anyways so till 1’o clock it was all fine but all of sudden something went wrong with the systems. Don’t worry I’m not going to tell you technical details or else I’ll be sued under the act of violating company policies… So this damn system took my more than 4 hours to settle down which forced me to skip my lunch so ultimately no breakfast, no lunch… 😑 see my dedication…almost 10 hours now…hah!!! I’m very particular baba. (Damn!!! this system!!!) Still see people are so loyal that they work so much just for the peanuts…hey Rahul don’t use such statements..Ya ya I know I know… I was just saying that I simply love this company…but slightly other way round… Arghhh!!! And you know whatttt??? Company has so many nice benefit plans for me so why shouldn’t I love this company, right?? But ultimately Monday to Friday you literally have no personal life. Anyways this quickly reminds me an incident which happened with my friend’s boss. I will tell you the story.

This person (My friend’s boss) was having product RELEASE scheduled for this month. Now I belive all you guys understand what I mean by RELEASE but if you don’t ; then please check out with your nearest software engineer friend, No no don’t even try googling it, it won’t work. So this guy was really working hard for his scheduled product RELEASE; sitting late in the nights & coming early in the morning. Finally RELEASE was successful at the end of the month, he got visibility & appreciation from the client. He was very happy, left early that day. When he reached home, his kid actually was staring at him surprisingly. πŸ™„ That 2 year old could not recollect who was that person? Obviously, all this time when this guy was working hard, he used to go home only when his small baby was sleeping, so how can you expect that he will recognize you? One step further, that baby refused to go to his Dad. Oh!!! That’s really very sad… πŸ™

So guys don’t let this happen to you. I understand work is important, deifinitely I’ll say give your best shot but upto what level??? How do you define your productivity? Can you measure your productivity in terms of number of hours you have spent in front of the PC? Remember the old school days formula

Efficiency = Output/ Input

So always try to get maximum output with little or optimal input. see I said optimal input because I strongly believe that it is certainly not possible to achieve something significant in your life without hardwork but not at the cost of your personal life & family time. Fortunately, now in my case atleast I know what is the optimal value of the input, that’s 9.5 hours, ha ha ha!!!

Guys,think about it, don’t get messed up, always pick up sometime for yourself & your loved ones. To Be Continued…

P.S. I observed that extra hour resulted in, more number of people in the Library & cafetaria/canteen, especially in the lunch time

P.P.S. Also number of commuters in the 6’o clock bus increased drastically… πŸ™‚

P.P.P.S. I noticed that since past 2 days, paper napkins are missing from washrooms… “Gone are the days!!!” πŸ™‚

❗ All thoughts mentioned in this post are hypothetical and any close resemblance to the real life is just a coincidence & purely un-intentional. (I know guys you got it.) πŸ™‚

Feel free to comment… πŸ™‚

Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus!

Huh!!! Very familiar & popular topic. This is a well known fact that boys and girls are surely different in all the aspects. Even if it is the simplest issue of shopping or most critical issue of solving a problem is concerned, both have their own ways of approaching the problem. Usually we find that men try to solve a problem in more logical way while women tend to solve problems in more or less emotional way. In other words, men use brain in very straightforward result oriented approach while girls use their hearts to solve a problem & simultaneously build or maintain a very nice relationship.

No, hold on here I don’t mean girls use no brains to solve problems but I mean they more likely to be more emotional than being logical. So this one is the most basic important difference in Men & women, probably causing lots of more differences when both of them interacting with each other. Ok now let me first tell you guys that I’ll try to share my experiences or my views on how to maintain better relation but I’ve no intention to target or criticize any of them, neither girls nor boys. As being a guy, I can tell you better, how guys can communicate nicely with girls.

For example: If you talk to a woman in her language on her level on her favourite topics, do I need to tell you explicitly that you will get better results than you would if you just doing your own thing. πŸ™‚ But I don’t mean that all that you should keep on discussing her favourite topics. No, not at all. But as you know women are more inclined to talk things than man would. Women prefer to resolve conflicts, discussing various aspects of situation. They just want to recollect the topic over & over until it has been completely resolved. While men tend to stay away from the discussion & move on quickly since they think discussing again on the same topic will create more problems but this can in fact cause problems between them because Men shuts down & women feels neglected.
The smart man will figure out this problem, will listen to the woman in his life. But he should not only listen, he should respond, comment, ask questions & somehow keep the conversation going until she thinks its resolved now. Now here is most critical part.

I know guys you must be thinking “boss, you expect us to listen girls all these things” Yes, I know sometime you loose your patience & that is harmful which could make the situation worst. That is why I said, don’t just listen, respond, comment & if you have some valid arguments put them in a very precise manner. This will not only satisfy her need to communicate but it will also get the issues open. This could work to your advantage also, particularly if you are in a relationship that you really care about.

So as I said men & women are different for sure but if you are watchful & pay attention to the signals she is passing, you can surely learn how to communicate with them effectively. Just try to recognise them, look them in the eye & pay attention to little clues that she will give. Talk to her & let her know that you are paying her attention. When you are at the same level of communication she is already, you will surely have her attention. And just make a note of one thing, in such situations don’t try to make fun out of her, this will create so many problems again. πŸ™‚

At least these are some things which I have noticed so far in my life & probably because of that I have quite a few very nice female friends as well. πŸ™‚

Few things about girls

angel
Ok so guys here are certain things which I’ve noticed so far about girls. Probably you can apply these things to guys also but I found them more suitable on girls, may be because I don’t notice/watch guys in more or less in that sense πŸ™‚

So coming back to the point. First let me clarify that I’m going to put only some aspects about girls which are concerned to their external appearances, external beauty & not about their nature/behaviour. Yes I believe internal beauty, nature, behaviour of a person are also significant properties but may be I’ll write that in my other article as I’ve been doing in my previous articles up to certain extent. So this article is totally about the girl’s external beauty & presentation. Also, in no ways I’ve any intention to target any specific girl. In fact, I’ve been personally respecting girls & I will. So girls you can also read this with open mind.

Ok so as long as I’ve understood girls, I can broadly classified them in 4 categories.

Good Looking Presentation
Smart Girls Yes Excellent
Average Girls Yes Bad
Ordinary Girls No At least, try to present nicely
Very Ordinary Girls No Bad

 

There are 4 types of girls viz. Smart, Average, Ordinary & very ordinary. Let’s take a look at all of them one by one.

Smart Girls: These are the girls who are definitely good looking & additionally they are aware of it & so they usually present themselves very nicely, in fact excellently. Here, I mean the way they dress, their body language, appearance in public places, their confidence levels. All in all everything up to the mark so for sure these girls rock but please do not misinterpret these girls with over smart girls, as these are very much down to earth. Probably you must be thinking that I’m talking about dream girl but seriously these type of girls do exist.

Average girls: Unfortunately, these girls aren’t aware of the fact that they are really good looking. These girls probably don’t know how much potential they have? Sometimes they dress badly or somehow they can’t put themselves decently, may be because they are just too casual or negligent about their appearance. But seriously believe me they just need a makeover & they will be wonderful.

Ordinary girls: Actually these girls are not so good looking but they continuously put so much efforts to present themselves decently & even sometime they are successful too. But sometime they turn out to be over smart.

Very Ordinary girls: I feel very sorry for these girls. These girls are unfortunately average looking and one step further they are just too casual to present themselves decently. Less confident ,always confused & not at all concerned about the presentation.

So guys & girls what do you think? Your comments always welcomed…

I recommend reading this: I met my best friend’s parents

I love you Mom-Dad!!!

An 80 year old man was sitting on the sofa in his house along with his 45 years old highly educated son. Suddenly a crow perched on their window.

Father asked his Son, “What’s this?”

Son replied “It’s a crow”.

After a few minutes, Father asked his Son the 2nd time, “What’s this?” The Son said “Dad, I’ve jst now told you “It’s a crow”. After a little while, the old Father again asked his Son the 3rd time, What is this?” At this time some expression of irritation was felt in the Son’s tone when he said 2 his Father with a rebuff. “It’s a crow, a crow”. A little after, the Father again asked his Son 4th time, “What is this?” This time the Son shouted at his Father, “Why do u keep asking me the same question again & again, although I’ve told u so many times ‘IT IS A CROW’; are u not able 2 understand this?”

A little later the Father went 2 his room & came back with an old tattered diary which he had maintained since his Son was born. On opening a page, he asked his Son 2 read tht page.When d son read it, the following words were written in the diary :

Today my little son aged 3 was sitting with me on the sofa, when a crow was sitting on the window. My Son asked me 23 times what it was & I replied 2 him all 23 times that it was a Crow. I hugged him lovingly each time he asked me the same question again & again for 23 times. I did not at all feel irritated I rather felt affection for my innocent child.

While the little child asked him 23 times “What is this?”, the Father had felt no irritation in replying to the same question all 23 times & when today Father asked his Son the same question just four times, the Son felt irritated & annoyed. So, If ur parents attain old age do not repulse them or look at them as a burden, but speak 2 them a gracious word, be cool, obedient, humble & kind to them. Be considerate to your parents.

From today say this aloud, “I want to see my parents happy forever. They have cared for me ever since I was a little child.(I mean it guys!!!) They hav always showered their selfless love on me. They crossed all mountains & valleys without seeing the storm & heat to make me a person presentable in the society today”.

Say a prayer to god, “I will serve my old parents in the best way. I will say all good & kind words to my dear parents, no matter how they behave.”

Guys, in my personal opinion, I believe it does not matter how successful person I would be, I’m very much aware that Whatever I’m today, that’s absolutely because of my Father & my Mother!!! I love you Mom-Dad!!!

Delhi Agra trip

17022009466Last month I went to Delhi, probably February is the best time to meet this place as the weather is not so hot not so cold. But for me the reason was different. Actually, this year we decided to celebrate my Dad’s birthday in Delhi. So with my whole family I went there. I landed early morning in Delhi. It was a nice bright morning with slightly colder than Mumbai. we visited quite a few places in Delhi, most of them are old monuments including Qutub Minar,Lotus temple & also we saw India gate, Parliment,President’s house. Though it wasn’t my first time to visit these places, I really enjoyed this time ; especially Qutub Minarvisit. Honestly telling you though I’ve been to this place earlier as well, I don’t know why but this time I had fun & captured several photos. Also I found Birla temple a very calm & nice place to visit. Actually I went to this temple for the first time.

On the very next day I went to Agra. Wow!!! Practically this was my third attempt to see Taj Mahal as last 2 attempts, I could not see Taj. But finally this time I could make it. Whole day I spent there. Apart from Taj, I managed to visit 16022009429Agra fort which is hardly at walking distance. Frankly speaking this Fort is being overlooked as most of the tourists come here to see Taj. Obviously Taj is very nice place but I feel Agra fort is a very nice old days building worth seeing.
Take my word, go visit this place you are surely going to like this and fortunately its properly maintained by Indian government.

Anyways, so in short I really had nice time in this trip with my Mom-Dad!!! πŸ™‚

Why do we shout?

A saint asked his disciples, ‘Why do we shout in anger? Why do people shout at each other when they are upset?’

Disciples thought for a while, one of them said, ‘Because we lose our calm, we shout for that.’

‘But, why to shout when the other person is just next to you?’ asked the saint. ‘Isn’t it possible to speak to him or her with a soft voice? Why do you shout at a person when you’re angry?’

Disciples gave some other answers but none satisfied the saint. Finally he explained, ‘When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other through that great distance.’

Then the saint asked, ‘What happens when two people fall in love? They don’t shout at each other but talk softly, why? Because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is very small…’

The saint continued, ‘When they love each other even more, what happens? They do not speak, only whisper and they get even closer to each other in their love. Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at each other and that’s all. That is how close two people are when they love each
other.’

MORAL : When you argue do not let your hearts get distant, do not say words that distance each other more, else there will come a day when the distance is so great that you will not find the path to return.

I hope guys all of you will agree on this. This was sent to me by a friend today & I totally agree on this.
