Thank you .

This post is specially meant for those 101 lovely souls who had the patience and the courage to have visited my blog !

I am on cloud nine , on top of the world ,over the moon and the feeling of having a 100 views is out of this world !

My critics may be of the opinion that I am over reacting . After all 100 views does not mean that all 100 have read any post of mine .
But I beleive in showing my gratitude to anyone who has had the heart to have taken even just a glimpse of my blog ! That is not over reaction ! That is just sweet of me ! That is just me showing my large hearted nature !Just kidding ! ( Is this the funniest blog you have seen or what !! ...no? It is'nt?  damn..I should have known :-p ) Maybe I should stop praising myself before people misunderstand me to be boastful and self-centered !!

I promise . This will be the first and last of the posts with poor jokes like that . Promise . Never again ! Maybe when I hit a 1000 views , I'll slip in just one of those .... no? not even then? curses !

Anyway , I am celebrating this milestone and I want you to join me ! Get a bar of chocolate and a can of coke ( coca-cola..I don't endorse drugs and FYI I doubt if they sell drugs in cans :-p ) and at exactly 10:00 p.m IST it's PARTY TIME !! You can sit in your house , on your couch and enjoy it ! Forget anything that might be troubling you and sing and dance and eat ! The party is on till 11 !

Oh and an apology is due  because my guest writer idea has not taken off yet and I know just the person to blame ! I shall make sure atleast one guest writer has posted something in 4 days !

Till then good bye ! ciao ! stay safe ! And don't forget .. PARTY at 10:00 !!

Diwali: Be a Hero

In India, we celebrate a lot of festivals. We celebrate so many festivals that at times it is difficult to keep count of what we're really celebrating. Different people look at this differently. For school kids, it means plenty of holidays. For their teachers, it means less time to complete the syllabus. For employees, it means a day away from work. For their employers, it means a drop in productivity. But there is one festival that really stands out in a calendar year. For years, I've been told it's the “festival of lights” but that isn't an accurate description of what it is any more. I'm,of course, talking about Diwali. The story is familiar to everyone. (For those who aren't familiar with it, there's a VERY concise version here : The Diwali Story). Diwali is, like almost all other festivals, a time to celebrate. And at least for as long as I can remember, it is also the time when environmentalists everywhere feel like they have the most hopeless job…

Aarushi, we're sorry

The Aarushi-Hemraj double murders or the Noida double murders was one of the most famous crimes in recent times in India. The subject of an enormous amount of media gaze, the investigation in the case was unprofessional, to put it mildly. The truth is, the investigation was shoddy, incoherent and provided very little answers. In the end, after multiple twists and turns, the court found Dr Rajesh Talwar and Dr Nupur Talwar guilty of the most sacrilegious of crimes. That of the murder of their own daughter. Before getting to that, here's a quick recap of the incident itself.

Her parents suspected their domestic help, 45 year old Hemraj, who was missing and filed a complaint with the police. Police started the investigation in the case and collected evidence from the scene. Among those, was a bloodstained bottle of scotch on the dining table. The door to the terrace was locked and Dr Ra…

“The internet is the first thing that humanity has built that humanity doesn't understand, the largest experiment in anarchy we've ever had.” -Eric Schmidt, Co-Founder and CEO, Google.com
In the year 1947 when John Bardeen and his team at Bell Labs in Murray Hill, New Jersey were busy inventing the first transistor, Harry S Truman was on the campaign trail with almost every prediction indicating that he would be defeated by Republican Thomas E. Dewey in the elections that would be held the following year. Meanwhile, somewhere in Illinois, Hugh Rodham and Dorothy Howell were celebrating the birth of their first child, a baby girl they named Hillary Diane Rodham and nearly 7000 miles away, 300 million Indians were celebrating their hard-fought independence from over 200 years of British colonial rule.
