Happy New Year !!

To all the lovely people reading this blog. Here's wishing you a very happy and prosperous new year.
Let us all take some resolutions in this happy occasion.

1) Poverty is the biggest curse of mankind. Let us do something who dont have much. Even a small thing as giving out food on your b'day to a blind school or an orphanage will be good. It doesnt matter how much you do, as long as you do something.

2) We need to stop this demon of global warming. So lets take another resolution that we will do something for the nature. It could be planting a tree sapling or participating in cleaning river events, or using as less electricity as possible. Save energy save your planet.

3) We are a social animal and need to have friends and family around us. So lets resolve that we will call that long forgotten friend and try to bridge that gap. Its not difficult, just run through friends in  your phone diary and find out the no. you didn't call in last one year. Then its as simple as clicking on the dial button :) I promise, you wont be disappointed by the reactions from the other end.

4) Lets TRY to drive in a lane and dont disrupt the traffic.

Since it has started to look like a wish-list so I will stop here and leave the rest of resolutions to yourself
Have fun guys, lets welcome the new year with the hope that it will bring a lot of happiness, prosperity and peace in our lives.

Let the celebrations begin ... !!

Today is 31st December again. In all these years gone by, I have seen plenty of changes in the world around me, like the advent of computers, mobile phones, ipods and we have said good byes to good ol' "PP" (Paas Padhos) nos., pocket diaries but the thing that remained same was the revelry and showbiz of the new year celebrations.

If you think about it, it seems all strange. Whats so special about new year. Don't we have a new day every 24 hours, or a month every 30 days, or 10 yrs every 120 months but we only seem to celebrate the coming of new year. And how ?? Simple, we drink and we dance and we shout :). Its just so primal.

But anyways, before you think that I am a sadist, let me clarify, I am just wondering about the reason of it all. And in no way trying to put the entire show down. In fact, I wonder why are we having so few of such public celebrations. We need more of them to let go of petty politics, back biting and if nothing else then a mob war over religion/caste.

So on this happy occasion, just one simple appeal to you all, DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE.

Respect your life and of others. Have fun and enjoy your self.

Fine, I will leave it a that.
Adios 2010, and lets welcome 2011 and hope that it will bring happiness, prosperity and peace to the whole of mankind. Amen.

And so it begins.....

So.. finally, after much pushing and shoving by friends and well wishers, I have decided to maintain this web diary :-). Whether this turns out to be a good or bad decision only time will tell. I am keeping my fingers crossed !!

I will be talking about things happening in and around me, frequently (hopefully !!)
Things like movies, travel, food, my favourite game Age of Empires and of course Technology (in the form of technical articles).

I hope you will enjoy them as much as I will.
So, let the joyride begin.. here I come bloggies, ;-)
