Lazy blogger !!

This blog ,which I proudly call mine , hit a 100 views a week or so ago ! yes ! woohoo ! As a matter of fact I even announced it in my previous post ! I even announced a worldwide party to celebrate my "success" !! Infact ,  I'm still in the hangover of that acheivement ! So much so , that I did not bother posting anything in the last week !  I was , as they say , resting on my laurels :-P


Now , My guest blogger idea just never seems to take off ! Thanks to some lazy co-bloggers and even lazier main blogger ( yep , that's me ) ! Pestering them week after week for the last 2 weeks has had no effect and so ...well and so I guess i'll have to continue doing so till they agree to write !

Truth be told , they have agreed to write . Their problem is that they just can't think of anything to write about . And that's why I decided to help them today !

So co-bloggers listen up ! You can write about anything you want to! Some kid hit you with a balloon ? Blog it ! A stupid crow stole your packet of chips? Blog it ! Osama bin laden was killed? Blog it ! Oh..wait..I already did that one ! My point is that this is not a live debate .. No one will question you for writing something you beleive in ! It's YOUR shout-it-out soapbox ! So stand up and speak !

But the major problem is not that ! You find a topic .. You sit down to type it out..You start and then you think "damn it..I can't think of anything more to write ..I'll save it as a draft and do it tomorrow" ! I'm sure that's happened to most of us ! Certainly happened to me more than just a couple of times !

I am not going to ask you to change that ! Sometimes if you can't finish what you started it just shows you are'nt actually interested in what you are writing ! So chuck that , start over ! Write about something that you really want to tell that world ! Something that you have always wanted to shout out in public but never did !

You can take your time and write what you want because after all this is a blog for crazy , lazy bloggers  !!

P.S : Co bloggers start co-blogging for the love of god ! I announced my plans weeks ago ! People are begining think I lied about the whole thing !!

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.



14 year old Aarushi Talwar was found dead in her bedroom in the morning of the 16th of may, 2008. 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.

The invention of the transistor…
