14 Hours...

The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain...

Its been raining raining raining in Bangalore...Yesterday it had almost 14 hours of rain...Roads flooded with rain water affecting business and normal life of Bangaloreans.

I liked the job done by Bangalore City Traffic Police, who were trying their best to keep the traffic going smooth amid heavy rains. Also got SMSs on my Hutch phone from City Traffic Police with suggesstions to avoid the flooded roads. Great job...

Here are some snaps describing heavy amounts of rain...

Hosur road...but where is the road!!!

I hope the rain stops for now...else its going to affect the normal life. Wish I was in School/College as they are going to enjoy two days of solid vacations. Hope the rain will not result in huge loss.

The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain...cant do anything to stop it isnt it???

KBC2

I saw KBC2 for the first time it started since a few months ago. A lot has changed...one can feel that it has become too much of commercial. When phone a friend...u hear the mobile phone service provider-airtel tone, when the contestant is playing u see lenova-the name of the PCs(Lenova the chinese co, which took over IBMs PC business few months ago)... Inspite of all the changes the one that has not changed is Amitabhs style of hosting the game. Amitabh is a great actor with a solid voice...

Jane kyon...

Met a few of my friends...oh god...they too came in the trap of love. oh man... jane kyon log pyar karate hain... jane kyon wo kisi pe marate hain... jane kyon..jane kyon.,jane kyon.

It doesnt mean that I am against it... but I have seen many people loosing in it. Its like 8 of 10 relations do not work. The remaining two are the lucky ones.

Nice Cartoons...

Some of the nice cartoons that i came across...

Wah hujur wah...

Read an interview of Bismillah Khan in Readers Digest... The Passion that he has for Shehnai is unbelievable. At the age of 90, he is residing at his home town unlike his contemporaries who flew west. Passion that he has for Shehnai can not be described in words. A recipient of the prestigious Bharat Ratna leads a very simple life.

I have his photo which was taken when he had come to Bangalore a few years ago. That photo was taken before he was about to play Shehnai at a packed auditorium. Before the concert began he was seen doing riyaz in a small room near the auditorium. While taking the snap when asked why he was in a small room playing Shehnai...Khan Saheb answered...Shehnai is my passion and I do riyaz all the time even before playing it in the concert. Such a great personality, who knows Shehnai very well still does riyaz was impressive. This shows the belief Khan Saheb has in Practice. One thing that I liked about him was the Passion that he has for Shehnai. Be it business, playing an instrument or any job...if one has passion...then he/she is bound to succeed.

When he plays Shehnai...the auditorium echos with the appreciation of his fans with the words...Wah hujur wahhhh....

Lets see how the Strings sound

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Bought a new Guitar yesterday (I finally own one). I wanted to buy a guitar when I was studying in graduation...but could not afford to spend time on learning to play guitar those days, the same was during MBA. Now that I can afford to spend 2 hours on a daily basis...thought should buy a guitar. Will be joining a class from today to learn to play guitar. After learning...would like to play...

Hotel California
Romeo & Juliet Theme
Summer of 69
Desperado Title Song
Karz Theme...

Being a layman to guitar...it’s going to be difficult in the initial days of learning. Patience is very much required. Let’s see how the strings sound...

Safety First...

Many accidents happening in the city and from yesterday I started using seat belts. People in the anticipation of reaching quickly drive so fast they eventually meet with an accident. Eventhough one is following traffic rules or driving slow, there is no guarantee that accidents wont happen, most of the times its because of the people who are rash drivers.

Its like...

Speed Thrills...
Speed Kills.

Readers...do start using seat belts...they can save ur life...

Quake...

Came across a book called "Earthquake" which was published in during 1960. What a information it has about earthquakes...like why does EQ happen...what factors are responsible for such a natural disaster and more... I was looking at the world map in the book which describes the epicenters(the regions likely to have frequent EQs). Such regions were marked in red and the regions in India were northern part of J&K, Gujarat and Maharashtra. The information was so conviencing coz J&K had a EQ recently, Gujarat and Maharashtra(Lathur)... how can one forget these places which claimed thousands of lives during major EQs measuring around 7 on Richter Scale. May god rest thier souls in peace...and give strength to the people to overcome such disasters... There is lots of aid coming to help the people in the recent EQ...but will such an aid/help get back what they had before EQ...

Other major epicenters were Alaska, Indonesia, Japan and some part of Indian Ocean.

Inspite of advancement in Science and Technology we are unable to predict such disasters well in advance so that precautions can be taken.

Cadburys

I was buying few stufs at a local departmental store...while I was paying the bill... My eyes went on a rack full of Cadbury's Chocolates. Couldnt wait and brought a Dairy Milk... I used to have lots of chocolates when in School, the number started reducing when I entered graduation and it was almost nil during MBA. Dairy Milk is a chocolate with rich taste...smooth..and hmmmmm yummy. And guess what at Cadbury's they are celebrating 100 years of providing great taste.

Nobel...

With the Nobel Prize list being announcement...I look for the prizes awarded in the field of Economics/Finance...This year award for contribution in the Economics is awarded to Robert J Aumann and Thomas C Schelling. Aumanns contribution towards Game theory bagged him the prize.

I believe Nobel Prize is not a matter of chance, it requires dedication, committment, sinceriety..... It takes decade or more to develop a Prize wining research. I liked the work of Harry Markowitz(for Portfolio Theory) and William Sharpe(for Capital Asset Prizing Model) who were awarded Nobel Prize in 1990, which changed the way investments are made and valued. It was one of the biggest contrbution to the world of Finance and Economics and the concepts are being widely used in todays Financial Markets.

Grad Classmates...

Meet two of my classmates from graduation. It was nice to see them in Bangalore. 3 years I had spent with them...that was a wonderful time. Graduation days and days during MBA were the best days of my life. Most of my friends have moved to different cities as required by thier jobs. Its true what they say..."College Life is Golden Life" and impossible to get those days back. It just leaves behind sweet memories and a hope that someday somewhere we will meet.

Stop this...

On the radio I was listening to a song, a difficult song to understand and think of...

The song goes like this...(My thoughts about the song in italics)

Jeeyega Marega...Marega - Marne ke baad kya aatma se pyar karega?
Karega Bharega...Bharega - Kya Bharega?
Suli chadega...chadega - Zindagi ki cidi chad!
Love ke liye saala kuch bhi karega... - Kuch Bhi Bole to, Be rational dude.

Oh man...difficult to take this song...the only thought that came to my mind was... STOP THIS SONG!

Just remembered

Opened up my old files, folders and college bag to search for analysis of rising oil prices which I had done few months back. I was sitting on my chair and reading the articles and statical work done by me and felt good. This seems to happen when you come across a work for which you had put in a lots of time and efforts.

Rising oil prices have a massive impact on the economy they put an upward pressure on inflation and move GDP southwards....was one of the line written by me. I was very much interested those days in finding corelation between gold and oil and the impact of rising oil prices on the economy. Its an interesting topic to research on. Whenever the oil prices rally everyone talks about it starting from a small investor to the FED Chairman Greenspan...isnt it?

Poetry...

A 4 line poem which came to my mind when I was walking...

the way the things are going,
dont know where am i heading!
with every decisions taken after a thought,
God, give me strengths to make my future bright.

No work = Poetry

Whenever I have less work or no work... I put on the hat of a Poet... its a good thing actaully, and helps in improving thinking ability and vocabulary too. Always get blocked on the third or fourth line of poem.

Bangalored...

Came across a new word... Bangalored - It refers to people who have been laid off from a multinational because their job has been moved to India. More info on this word can be found by clicking here.
