"No matter what goes wrong always remember your way back home. If you fail to do something, remember the path back home. Come back home, we will accept you and always support you, we will always be with you"
I read this in a book and this is what a mother had to say to a daughter on her wedding day.
I guess these things happen only in the movies or in books, never in reality. If it were to happen in reality, I don't think young/old married women would ever consider to kill themselves. It is very disturbing to read that a young software engineer from bangalore decided to end her life at the age of 25 because her in-laws were making her life a living-hell. Even though hers was a love marriage and she had chosen the guy after dating him for some good 3 years, her husband failed to support her. I would not completely blame the in-laws or the husband for this. The girls parents are also to be blamed.  The girl ended here life because she had nowhere else to go...not even to her mother.  If the girl was comforted saying "No matter what goes wrong always remember your way back home", I am sure she would have found her way back home.

  • 1st impression is the best impression. Or is the last impression that matters?
    I think its the 1st impression that matters because it helps is shaping your perception towards him/her. 1st impression shapes the last impression.
  • You can lead a horse to water but cannot make it drink. This is so true for donkeys like us. I strongly believe in this.
    In case you are the person being made to drink err...water, "You gotto do what YOU gotto do" and not "you gotto what you OUGHT to do". Whatever you do, you need to show some interest. Show that it matters. We are not zombies. We have life or may go get 1, if you dont have 1 :P. If you can't show some interest then DONT DO IT. Do what you like and voila 'interest' follows.
    On the other hand, we tend to force others to do something that we like. Ab tera khooon khoon mera khoon kaveri neeru. Jo hona hain so hoga....making others dance to our tunes is kinda being selfish on our part, isn't it? If the other person does something just for the heck of it, halfheartedly, doesn't show any damn interest, WE are at loss.
    Now, what does the saying have anything to do with a horse, why not a deer, tiger or any water drinking animal?                              

  •  meri billi mere ko meow - why cat? why not mera kuttha mere ko bow? meri gaay mere ko maaaw...
  • Dhobi ka kuttha na ghar ka na ghat ka - why kuttha? Dhobi ka donkey hota hain na? Liktha kaun hain yeh sab.

  • Why am i writing all this nonsense?
    coz i have no other better work in my life and am lazy as a mule...c'mon how can you call a mule lazy. That poor thing is used as beast of burden.

Somethings that money cant buy

  • Misplaced bike  key => Prayed to god to find the key for me. Agreed to treat him at the Leelas. And god agreed. I found the key. Devravne. There are somethings that money cant buy....for everything else there is GOD
  • But my bike wouldn't start => I guess even GOD cant buy somethings.
  • Spend 2.30 hours in a rickshaw, going up and down the potholes of bangalore => miss mysore a lot
  • wait for somebody the whole day . Ignore all the other important events for this. The person chooses to take no notice => arghhh
    Being ignored is painful esp. when you get a cute haircut and nobody notices.
  • End of the day, get to play with a 2 year old and he loves your gift => Truly somethings that money cant buy.

Apple <= Orange

Apples are apples and Oranges are Oranges....

An apple is not an orange and neither is an orange an apple. Though some apples are oranges but percentage of oranges being apple is lesser than or equal to Yeddy-boy's chances of retaining his CM seat.

The phrase "apples are apples and oranges are oranges" is more quoted than Arnab goswami's phrase "Let me interrupt you here for a minute" and it has become one of the most widely accepted laws of science.

Frequent Q & A answered by Einstein
  • But aren't oranges, as apples are, fruits?
Ahh, but recent evidence has clearly proven that oranges are actually closely related to the three(or six for that matter)-toed sloth, which is clearly not a fruit, despite many shared qualities between the two.
  • Isn't it true that oranges, just like apples, exist?
This could not be further from the truth; apples have not been proven to exist, therefore they do not. 

  • Both apples and oranges are round, right?
This is a very good question but it was apple that fell on Newton's head and not an orange., therefore oranges are not round.

Why GOD?

I seldom visit temples but whenever I do, it leaves me perplexed. Ain't it the best example of paradox. Common man goes to a temple to pray and eveytime he p(r)ays, the gods get richer. I guess we need a role reversal here, everytime a common man goes to a temple, he needs to be given some 10Rs - isn't this what god is supposed to do - take care of his devotees.

Why do we really pray? For health, wealth and happiness. Can god really help us achieve this? I guess the answer is no. Its all in our hands and nobody else. What does all the fundo puja signify? Nobody knows. The pujari in the cassette blabbers and we blindly follow. The money spent can be utilized in doing some good treating yourself @BR ;)

To top it, Mothers of India think that girls who visit temples often, are the next goddesses ...and the rest belong to "Rakhi Sawant" class.

Jaago bhakth jaago...kuch karo logon ke liye. Jo paisa bhagwan ko dethe ho, usme aadha giribon mein baato.

P.S : I am not an atheist and I am not supporting atheism.  Hail Rakhi Sawant.

Life is made of tiny things - real tiny ones. They can either make it or break it.  Tiny things like speaking out, pretending to care, showcasing your work, being pseudo...all are important. They can either make you or break you.

It had to rain in the long weekend when I had planned to finish major shopping work. If you have stayed in Bangalore for even a day, you would understand the trauma I am going through right now. I had to stick to home after 4p.m and it takes 2hrs to come to my place from anywhere in Bengalooru. So, this meant, I had to finish all my shopping by 2 p.m.

The potholes, the never-moving traffic, common-sense-less morons,
terrorist-auto-drivers...the list just goes on and on.

Bengalooru might be the IT Hub and blah blah but this city is really not ready for anything that is non-IT. Be it rains/natural calamities or any accidents. The Carlton tower accident is the best example-The tower caught fire due to some cable issue. It was not a major major accident but yes, few parts of the tower was burning with people trapped in the top floors.
  • The rescue ladders reached only the 4th floor while people in the 5th floor were left wondering - some took chances and leaped and died. 
  • Manipal hospital was just a few yards away, but thanks to the traffic, it took them bloody 30 mins to come to the spot.
  • Firemen arrived some 2 hrs later with an empty vehicle. 
Lucky for us that tsunami can never strike us...lucky for us-we are not affected by earth quakes/floods. Lucky for us- no chill/heat waves. Lucky for us...rain god favours us.

However, last weekend was an exception. Rain god punished us. As expected, Bengalooru could not handle it. Trees fell, Walls fell, Traffic stopped (I was stuck in a bus for 4 hrs), Yeddi boy visited a temple for shanti (I love him).
I was travelling from Malleshwaram to Majestic. I was stuck in the bus for 4 hrs and then walked to Majestic. The scene in Majestic was worse. Nothing moved. Buses were like these tiny toys just waiting for some magic to happen. Funny part was traffic was fine outside Majestic.....I wonder what was causing the traffic inside. I somehow got out of Majestic and reached home. There was a moron near Majestic peeing-away-to-glory and we all were walking on the same pavement with flowing koche + watever...I wanted to die instead of walking there.
Rickshaw drivers had the busiest day charging 150 bucks for a 4 km ride.
Water logging is something that everybody complains about, during rains in Bengalooru but nothing is actually done. New roads or old roads or even flyovers...they are not complete without some 765 potholes in it.   
The IT park where I work is the besht example. We have to walk holding strangers' hands and take care of the laptops and not notice anything that floats towards you.

We are not ready for anything in Bengalooru except for Yeddi's scam, Gowda's remarks....ABSOLUTELY NOTHING...
I was in chennai last week. I was surprised by the way the city is connected via trains and buses. We covered almost 40kms in 30 mins. The journey from Railway Station to any place is so cheap and fast. I paid 7rs for 22kms. Here, in Bangalore, I paid 120 for 13kms and it takes me 90mins to reach Station irrespective of the day/time.
We are not READY for the expansion.

P.S : A Huge bloody ant bit me and I have deep-wide cut on my finger now. Mother Nature is so wierd...Mother India chased that ant and killed it...How can ants be so powerful? I lost some 2 litres of blood.  :(
