A note from my diary!!!

Image
Of all the things I possess, my diary is special. Not that I write it everyday but it has got all my bad secrets recorded in it. It doesnt make an iota of difference to me if someone else lay hands on it but it contain intricate details regarding others so I generally ensure it is untouched (by others).

Now I am writing a note from my diary which i wrote almost four years ago. The reason for bringing this up is a discussion thats happening in the one of the google groups that i'm part of about parents-children relation. In a discussion about parents-children-marraige, I vehemently support parents consistently. (one can find the same in my old blog posts.) one reason for my stance is the incident mentioned in this note. The text in italics below is the content of the actual note and i made some editing for clarity.
To start with the day was Friday, 9th Jan 2009.


Today I started from the office at 6:45PM and was struggling through the ever busy and dusty roads of Bangalore. The flyo…

Jaspal Bhatti Zindabad!!!

Jaspal Bhatti Zindabad!!


As a south indian kid, the name Jaspal Bhatti sounded very funny to me, what is this bhatti?? sounded quite nonsense. I didnt understand much of his serials then because of my limited/no knowledge of hindi. But I evidently remember the pirate attire he wore to mention the script of the serial is pirated.

I didnt realize the level of satire in flopshow untill i went to Kanpur and started to understand the Punjabi style of Hindi. When I first watched the serial in our lab I was literally rolling on the floor laughing. I think the first episode that I watched was "Government Officer". Some people depend only on dialogues for comedy like Trivikram Srinivas and some entirely rely on situational comedy like friends. (I never watched friends but i heard people calling it sitcom). But very rarely someone can blend both dialogues and situation to get the maximum comedy out. Telugu people are fortunate to witness this rare combination from…

Workers Vs Entrepreneurs!!!

Image
Everybody works for money, no doubts about that. But many remain as employees/workers and some end up as entrepreneurs earning big money and fame. In this post I tried to jot down certain points which I think are the difference between the two. This is all my own experience. As in case of everything in this world, this also boils down to one thing: ATTITUDE

Product Vs Process: Employees/workers focus on product where as entrepreneurs focus on process. Let me explain this with an example: every town/city in India have got some eating joint which mastered preparation some item and everybody are crazy about it. Like MTR in Bangalore, Bawarchi in Hyderabad, Komala Vilas in Nellore etc, you have atleast one place in the town which is very special but that fellow will be limited to his place only. He never expands his business, nor he creates a brand for himself. On the other side you have Mc Donald, probably the worst food provider on this planet. Atleast, I have not seen any place which …

Victory of Windies!!

Few days ago West Indies team have beaten the hosts Sri Lanka to win the ICC T20 Cricket World Cup. I  just tried to understand the various aspects of Windies cricket to reach this place.

Lost Glory: The regal look of Clive Llyod has vanished, so does the marauding spirit of King Richards. Shamefully enough, Lara is labelled as the last king of Caribbean which sums up that the assembly line of great cricketers have come to an abrupt end. There is no X factor in the bowling, no more lethal pace, nor the breath taking swing. No more Michael Holding, no more Andy Roberts. Sunil Naraine might be a dangerous bowler to England or SA who are perennially weak against spin but against Sri Lanka on their home turf, he is also just another bowler who could be effective on his day, NOT everyday.
The team: Desmond Haynes, Gordon Greenidge and Brian Lara Et al are gone and over. The present top order consists of a tyro and the other two are more in news for non-cricketing reasons. In the last one …
