Day after tommorow

Oh and on a side note... actually not that much of a side note, I was watching The Day After Tomorrow again the other day on HBO.


Film mirrors reality that's all I can say.. well, except for the total opposite in a few ways... you'll know what I mean when you see the movie.




Ridiculous

Proof that the world has gone freakin insane.

95 F in NYC and 100+ F in other parts of the country killing people in the US and rains are apparently killing people in my home city of Mumbai.



Are you kidding me?



And life goes on....

More search improvements

Google search has gotten so much better over the years.

Further proof. Courtesy of the google blog.

Google Search: what is the population of India

Ans:- India
Population: 1,065,070,607 (July 2004 est.)
According to http://www.cia.gov/cia/publications/factbook/fields/2119.html



Nice.. Lot of questions are now answered by google.

For Example,

When did WWII end?
How many people live in Alaska?
What atomic number is boron?
What is the frequency, Kenneth?
What is Vanilla Ice's real name?
What is Noam Chomsky known for?
and even :- How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop?



Lunar madness

So cool...

Have I already mentioned that I love google.

The Market

Woo-hoo for Indian Stocks


Good news for India's 130 year old stock exchange. One of the oldest in the world and the oldest in Asia.






Introspection

During the past few weeks, I have noticed quite a few things.

The most important thing I noticed was in my thinking itself.

There is obviously a difference in ideology here. People around me seem afraid of questioning things around them. They just seem to take things as they are given, doing nothing more and perhaps even nothing less.

I can see lately that I am sort of a rebel everywhere. I do, ask, tell people things differently than most people around me. Not that this is a bad thing or anything of that sort.

This pursuit of knowledge and the quest for self improvement comes very naturally now-a-days. That's just the discipline I have put myself through the past few years. Not content with being stagnant and always trying to move forward - that's what I've become.

Lets see where this "yellow brick road" takes me.

And I'm back


Back from my break.

Hopefully, postings should go back to their usual tempo.

Moved into my new apartment

Loving this new experience so far.

However there is some bad news... something happened to either my monitor or my vid card so no new pictures for a few atleast.

Also frequency of postings on this blog as well might be less..


Everything else is fun... please email me to get in touch if needed.
