Big boss 4 reality show biz

Reality shows are no more real and it is so damn obvious they are scripted. I am a tester and i personally feel that these shows need to be tested before airing them.

even if you are scripting them you can do it intelligently there scripting is so obvious and stupid that anyone can see its not real , totally illogical and fake.

Dolly sucks big time and i think she was paid by the channel to be such an ass. no sane person can behave like that.I do pity her husband sure she must be beating him on speaking over the dinner daily ha ha ...how can any one be so idiot.
One thing though is clear she was paid or explicitly directed to be an idiot. Knowing media probably it was written in her terms and conditons to make so much mess or she wont be admitted to the serial.

Rahul's accusation appear pretty logical and fits the bill. Though loved ones brain are some times in sync and they know what we are thinking before we say it but thats when we are pretty close to some one. But here every week everybody in sync turned on some ppls outof blue.

The pattern is soo obvious that it is laughable.
Females do appear to briefed on how to interact. Does any body understand the meaning of term logical behaviour?
Veenamalik apears to be in wrong industry alltogether.Or may be she wants to become famous like Rakhi sawant. Her frustration is enuf to make the show illegl for prime time. And i am still surprised such voilence and abusive and indecent behavior is allowed to be aired on prime time. Such volume of content overload is enuf to stretch nerves of any adult and bigboss is watched by families and still it is being aired without any protest. Surpise!

Sameer appears to be real and his behavior was one of a normal person and he deserves to win.

Dunno what it is with ppls and foreigners. The moment pamela came everyone became carpet for her.And on similar note when Shilpa was in big brother we all know what happened to her. How was she treated. There is a difference in making a guest feel comfortable and in laying before the person like a carpet.

On a positive note though.. Obama came asking Indians for help to give jobs to americans who are like forever weeping about thir lack of jobs. Personally i feel if they will stop spending life lazing around fishing and get down to study instead of getting into depression about their popularity in highschool. If only they will concentrate more on their studies instead of thinking of how to torture studious students then there jobs problem will be solved automatically.

But anyways we have to do all the right things because we are the largest democracy and we are people of patience so ultimately it all comes o us for settings things right..so of course we have to offer them job and we are so generous we started with hiring Pamela for Big Boss 4 in 2 crore that too.. nothin less.

See learn something from us when we Indians help we do that too with bang and we dont crib about it!

How to Sync device with Windows media player

My foray into this field made me realise there is no concentrated space having full information so i decided to do something.

Task: sync the songs on phone with your computer.
Sync means that when your phone is connected to the computer via usb the media files by default will be transferred to your device.

Overtime when the media fles in computer to be copied grow in size and space in your phone becomes less then most favourite songs will be copied first.


Is your device compatible with the windows media player?
First of all make sure if your device supports this process or not.
For this go this web page and find out if your phone model is listed here.

On that page : Select Communication Device->Mobile devices if you want to sync your mobile phone.

Once you are done with the verification proceed below for the further steps.


Requirements before you proceed:
OS: windows xp/vista/7
Software: Windows 11 or more installed
Device: compatible for transfer.
ports enabled.
device drivers available

Settings in phone:
1. Go to settings->connectivity ->USB mode
2. Set it to media player and save.

Process:
1. Install windows media player 11 or more.
2. close it once and launch again.
3. Connect your phone to the computer.
4. in the windows media player select Sync ->then select the arrow below it.

your phone's model name should be displayed here.
if your phone is not detected by the windows media player then go to Desktop
1. Right click on "my computer." icon and select Manage.
2. On the left side pane select "Device Manager".
3. on the right hand side pane select "portable device " if this is visible skip step 4 & 5 else go to step 4.
->select your phone and right click on it.
-> update driver.

4. however chances are you wont find any "portable device" and when you connect your phone a pop up comes recognising it as camera.
The pop up gives two tools word doc or image viewer only.
if this is the case then after selecting Device manager search all the option on right pane carefully and look out if your device is listed under any of them. for e.g. see under imaging devices etc.

you can also get the type (i.e. how your computer is recognising your phone) by going to my computer. there your phone must be listed under some heading.

so once you have found out the device right click on it and select "update driver".

now your phone will be properly recognised as mobile device and start showing under portable device.

now it will be viisble on your media player too under "sync"


how to view files on phone through windows media player ?
go windows media player->library-> select device name.

Background information about this phenomena.

This phenomena is possible due to MTP i.e. Media Transfer protocol.
Media Transfer Protocol supports the transfer of music files on digital audio players and media files on portable media players, as well as personal information on personal digital assistants.

Media Transfer Protocol (commonly referred to as MTP) is part of the "Windows Media" framework and thus closely related to Windows Media Player. Windows Vista has built-in support for MTP. Support for Media Transfer Protocol in Windows XP requires the installation of Windows Media Player 10 or higher.[2] Mac and Linux systems have software packages to support it.


UPDATE : 17:16 PM

Sync means that you can transfer the files from media player to phone and vise versa.

How to transfer files from device to system using media player:
1. go to Sunc tab on media player.
2. Select device on the left ->songs.
all the songs in your phone will be listed.
3. on the right side you will see a message sumthing like "drag here to sync to computer.."
4. drag files from devcie there which you want to copy to your system.
5. a button "copy from device" will appear.
6. click on it and file will be copied to my music or your default folder.
Note: clicking here on the files in phone will not play it.
To play music directly from phone just follow following steps.


How to play music on phone or device directly through music player (no syncing involved)

1. just connect your phone to computer through usb cable
2. Make sure it is recognised as portable device(read post from top).
3. launch windows media player->file->open->my conputer->select your phone.
set file types as "All files".
4. all files on phone will be visible here. you can double click and play it

cheers!

How to transfer files from media player library to device.

1. clear files from sync list.
2. in media player click on library->songs.
3. select files you want to transfer and drag and drop it to the sync list.
4. click on "start sync" button on the bottom of sync list.
5. it will autmatically transfer songs to your phone and show you "you can disconnect now" msg once done.

hope this helped :)

Its darkest just before dawn.. so hang on my friend

At one or other point of time in life every body becomes hopeless. The road seems tough the options are none or the one which are there seems all downhill. Then what do we do? Our generation is a bit confused about god's presence or doesn't believe in it all together so whom do we turn to?
But isn't that the crux of whole problem? Why do we have to turn to any body. We have strength and caliber to face any problem. One thing i believe that god never throws on us anything which we cant handle.

May be instead of losing hope all we need to have is more faith not at anyone else but at yourself. You have come so far then there has to be reason why you are here and lets face it quiting seems to be most illogical anticlimax to all the hard work we have put so far in ourself. May be its time to take a break and rethink the situation.

Somebody said "Necessity is the mother of Invention" :) and i think he nailed it! :D

I guess its time we stop pampering ourselves and utilise our complete potential.

There was a cute poem i heard once:

When the day is dark and dreary
And your way is hard to find
Don't let your heart grow weary
Just keep this thought in mind

It is better to light just one little candle,
Than to stumble in the dark!
Better far that you light just one little candle,
All you need’s a tiny spark!

If we’d all say a prayer that the world would be free,
The wonderful dawn of a new day we’ll see!
And, if everyone lit just one little candle,
What a bright world this would be!

What a bright world
this would be!

Lyrics by Joseph Maloy Roach

CWG medals day 10



(from left) A.C. Ashwini, Manjeet Kaur, Mandeep Kaur and Sini Jose put up a splendid show to finish ahead of Nigeria and England.


India just broke the records of more than fifty years at the Commonwealth Games.
The country had won just nine track and field medals at the Games, starting with Milkha Singh's gold in 1958, before Delhi, but now, with only the marathon to go on Thursday, India already has 12 medals, including two golds.

India, who had publicly declared their target of claiming the second spot on the medals tally before the start of the Games, moved closer towards their goal with a haul of 32 gold, 25 silver and 32 bronze medals for a total of 89 medals.

A.C. Ashwini, a hurdler, ran the race of her life to overtake Nigerian Dammy Abogunloko and give India the lead midway through the third leg. Mandeep Kaur, the anchor, continued the good work as the host pocketed its second gold of these Games and its first-ever relay victory in the Games history. Manjeet Kaur and Sini Jose ran the first two legs.

H.M. Jyothi was dazed too, after leading the women's 4x100m relay team to the bronze, its first sprint relay medal in the Games' history.

The quartet of M. Rahamatulla, Sathya Suresh, Shameermon and Abdul Najeeb Qureshi not only won the bronze but also bettered the National record, their second in as many days.


The team clocked 38.89 secs improving upon the 39-second barrier for the first time.

There was plenty of action on the field too. Former Asian champion Renjith Maheswary was jumping for joy after his career-best 17.07m leap in the third round of the men's triple jump which won him the bronze.

That effort broke Renjith's own three-year-old national record of 17.04m. The 24-year-old upset England's former European runner-up Douglas Nathan (PB 17.64) and Grenada's Randy Lewis (PB 17.49) on his way with a massive third-round jump.

Around the same time, Kashinath won the men's javelin bronze with a fifth round throw of 74.29m.


Women's top-seed Saina Nehwal of India defeated Anna Rice of Canada 21-7, 21-10 in the singles quarterfinals. Rice was down 0-7 in the first game before taking the first point off the Indian. Trust me the match was so good.. we were jumping off the coutch in excitement :) Saina, literally stalked her opponent like a tiger. She made my day with just awesome game!

Way to go saina..:)good luck for the finals:)

Common Wealth Games : Its raining medals !

This has been one very happy week. :)
First watched the grand ceremony of Common Wealth Games which was Awesome, stunning, grand, classy and beautiful.

Now, India is winning medals on medals.. wow!
India is currently on 2nd position in the medal tally.
Australia with 9 medals is on top.England is at third place with two gold medals.


Gagan Narang and Abhinav Bindra won gold medal in shooting the 10m rifle (pairs) event. They gave great performance aggregating 1193 points to erase the Commonwealth Games record of 1189 set by them four years back at the Melbourne Games.


Gold secured, the stands burst into wild celebration, much to the
chagrin of the competitors who were still shooting. Crowds milled around Bindra's father, coaches hugged the champions and the Games volunteers went into a tizzy, trying to bring a sense of normality at the range, even as coaches and support staff of other countries cringed.
Their feat was followed by a superb display of calm nerves and dead centre shooting by the women's duo of Rahi Sarnobat and Anisa Sayyed who added the second gold in the women's 25m pistol pairs event with a championship record of 1156 to boot.

Ravinder Singh, Sanjay and Anil Kumar clinching gold in their respective categories at the Commonwealth Games.

Wrestling Gold:

Ravinder Singh bagged the first yellow metal in wrestling in the 60kg category, beating England's Christopher Terence Bosson 7-2 in front of the cheering crowd at the Indira Gandhi Sports Complex.
Sanjay Kumar won the Gold medal by defeating South Africa’s Richard Brian Addinall in the 74 kg Greco-Roman event.
Anil Kumar claimed the fifth medal for the day on Tuesday, Oct 5 by by winning the 96kg Greco-Roman category.

Shoot IT:
Tejaswini Sawant, the first Indian woman shooter to clinch a gold medal at the World Championships.
Tejaswini and Goswami won silver in pairs 50m rifle 3 position



Tejaswini and Goswami totalled an impressive 1143 in prone, standing and kneeling stage and finished only six points behind gold medallist Aqilah Sudhir and Xiang Wei Jasmine Ser of Singapore, who totalled 1149.




Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi has congratulated Lajja for her victory. Modi on Tweeter congratulated Lajja by saying: “On behalf of all Gujarat, heartily congratulations to daughter of Gujarat, Lajja Goswami on her achievement of silver medal for India at CWG.”

CWG opening ceremony: The Night History was created

When I say that I am feeling proud to be an Indian I am sure this sentiment will be shared by billions of people. The hangover of the cwg ceremony is still in the air...

And it is not just us the world stood dazzled by the event.
I agree initially I was too among those who criticized and proclaimed doom and gloom for the game but my sis always was so sure even when Delhi was flooding! According to her anything which is criticized so badly comes up in even more dazzling form. Looks like experience does know better then us who get upset so easily: D

The enthu rubbed off though on me too as I also wanted the games to happen without the problem, needless to say that it all surpassed everyone’s expectations.

The 44 crore balloon was as after we watched the ceremony get over as we like to call fulto paisa wasool ;P The ceremony's concept was not bollywood and for that I am so thankful but more than that I am spellbound by the richness of concept. The very idea that somebody thought about that!

I mean can u imagine coming up in front of conservative bunch of people and selling them 44 crore idea to actually convince for such a big investment without any prior history?

I think that speaks a lot about the committee's dedication. I am so happy that the event lived up to our expectations and ousted us infact...
Bringing the participant in the beginning itself so that they won’t miss the ceremony was a real good move and I am as sure as sun that India just changed the rules which will be followed up from now onwards by every cwg.

Comments from worldwide:
The Guardian:"Concerns of recent weeks forgotten as dazzling event launches games amid atmosphere of national pride and celebrations change."

The Telegraph: "The biggest sporting spectacle India has ever hosted kicked off in typically colorful fashion... And there we were thinking it might never happen."

The Herald Sun: "Indian Games officials should feel proud of the opening ceremony, classy and showy but somehow warmer and less contrived than the Beijing experience."


The announcement of the beginning of the grand evening was made by the Indian drums or nagadas. The countdown starts with the Nagadas playing a beat to each count from 10 to 0. The biggest balloon ever to be used by any event when lifted was a majestic site. It was transformed to snake and lifted to 25m height amidst the snake charmers music.

I loved the yoga act with the human form coming up from the centre which I found hard to believe was real (I thought it was just a projection :))

The various dances depicting every season were colorfully dressed and perfumed beautifully.
The train which showed life of Indian common man was sweet thing and showed that we all exist excels despite all the short comings.

The sand drawing was an excellent addition. I saw it first on India’s got talent and I remember very vividly lamenting to my frnds why don’t they include it in the cwg opening ceremony. This is the type of thing u showcase!

Voila it was there n I was a satisfied person. Again and again I kept admiring the beauty of whole concept the persons who designed all this. Coordinating so many people...oh I rembr from coordinating the Namaste formation by kids was just AWESOME.
The hena mehndi was so well performed not a stroke out of order.

The night was full of surprise and more that anything I could have thought and hoped.

I have never been so proud to be an Indian so happy and I have never felt so better in my life!

2. open a new tab->google.com
3. search for Google Webmaster Tools.
4. Click on first link.

Common Wealth Games - WE are on India's side



All you have to type is cwg and you will get lot of cribbing about how delhi government is not doing something. There are also some status msg circulating around like dilli badnam hui common wealth tere liye ;P . Now i know that whatever has happened has been not very good and the media pressure has accounted for the emergency meeting by the PM. Honestly i believe this step should have been taken long time back but thats not the point i want to raise here.

I want to focus on something deeper. the inherent tendency of humans now days to crib. If you will notice that whenevr in office, college, homes, parks, any where we are discussing something like this, people will be sooooooooooooo passionate and excited to discuss it . its like we actually relish the incident and we love quoting the facts from tvs. on the other hand when things go good there is no media highlight, no TV will report it as breaking news they wont cover it day night , they wont show it hundred times, they wont repeat every minute detail as if the third world war is about to begin.

Somebody said if you want to remove a tree don't cut it. just stand around and curse it. it will die.
same thing is happening here.

I am NOT supporting the corruption and malpractises associated with the event but i do understand that lot of people's hard work has gone into it and there are lot of hopes attached to it. And we are no body to mar its image , media is famous for blowing the things out of proportion in every case good or bad. But everything apart its our moral responsibility to be with the nation though thick and thin. Why aren't the photographs of the stadium whose work has been completed being splashed? Why arent the reporters covering them? Why is there no breaking news for all the time which has been done?

The common wealth is not about the politicians only. Its ABOUT those who are actually working their heads of to make it work and they are NOT corrupt. We owe it to them our support and they need our support.

There are thousands of people out there from Engineers to Artist, from musicans to athletes, from Singers to Army jawans, from Construction site workers to Security heads, from Private companies executives to Labours working day and night to make this work.
what r we doin? the least we can do is show them our support...

I am doing my bit on bringing focus to the positive side of this event. Presenting below some beautiful photographs of our Delhi all decked up for the games.

s







I am on my nation's and my side and am looking forward to the grand opening cermony. :)

Whose side are you?

Flagged sites

In the depths of darkness, hope lights the path

I came across a beautiful story which i would like to share with you... the joy that there is goodnes out there... a story about HOPE.
"Esperanza, which means hope in Spanish, is the name of Ariel Ticona's baby girl. She is also believed to be the first child born to any of the 33 miners during their nightmarish weeks buried underground.
The day after the birth, Hector Ticona carried Chilean newspapers he was saving for his son with front-page photos of Elizabeth holding the new baby. The story of the baby's birth has been reported as far away as New Zealand, Germany and Singapore, and Esperanza has become a symbol that life continues for the miners despite their underground imprisonment.

Photos released from their hospital room showed a tiny baby, her eyes shut tight and with no idea that she is already famous at birth.


The decision to change her name arrived to Ticona in the mine's depths. That all the miners had survived the cave-in and then the 17 days it took rescuers to drill the holes that found them was already miraculous. But their continued physical and mental well-being was far from assured.
Faced with the fact that he and his fellow workers were about to experience an isolating darkness that no one had ever endured before, Ticona put pen to paper. The letter he wrote reached his family through what the Chileans call "palomas," metal tubes that carry food, supplies and messages to the trapped men.
"He said, 'What if we call her Hope?'" Hector Ticona recalled. "Hope for the camp backing us, hope for getting us out of here, hope to keep fighting for my daughter, hope to unite my family.' "

Ticona's wife agreed to the new name.
Before the mine collapse, Ticona promised Segovia he would be in the room when she gave birth. He had not been present for the births of their two sons, one time because he wanted to watch a beloved soccer team play and the other time because of "squeamishness," Segovia said.
Segovia decided to have the birth of their daughter videotaped. But videotaping a natural birth was against hospital policy. So, to get around the policy, she had a Caesarean section on camera.
Over a video conference system that is one of their links to the outside world, Ticona was shown the birth of his daughter, deep in the mine.

As she sat in a light blue tent at Camp Hope, Nelly Burgueño said it is a joy she hopes to experience herself soon. Her son, trapped miner Victor Zamora, and his wife also are expecting a daughter.
When the girl is born in six months' time, Burgueño said, the couple has decided to call her Paz Victoria, or Peace Victory.
"I am going to be a father," Burgueño said her son wrote her. "I am happiest man in the world even though I am in the depths of the earth. I want to share this happiness with everyone in the world, with you, Mom, and my brothers."
Burgueño said her son has been "reborn."
"He wrote me," she said, "that even in the deepest part of the earth there shines light"
Reported on CNN on sep 18th by Patrick."
Let us all join the effort and pray for the safe and speedy return of the brave miners. To these brave people i would like to say hang on ! hope is on its way...Strength to your families waiting for your arrival. There is lot to see just keep envisioning yourself walking out one day and people from all over the world are with you in this vigil even when its dark our wishes are with you.

I am hoping that hope camp makes a breakthrough fast and the families be reunited again. Amen.

A Short and to the point speech that says it all...

Here is some B+ve dose :)

30 second Speech by Bryan Dyson (CEO of Coca Cola)

"Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air.

You name them - Work, Family, Health, Friends and Spirit and you're keeping all of these in the Air.

You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four Balls - Family, Health, Friends and Spirit - are made of glass. If you drop one of these; they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for it."

WORK EFFICIENTLY DURING OFFICE HOURS AND LEAVE ON TIME. GIVE THE REQUIRED TIME TO YOUR FAMILY,FRIENDS & HAVE PROPER REST.

VALUE HAS A VALUE ONLY IF ITS VALUE IS VALUED"

He has really got a point.. i mean its a fact that happy employees are more productive then unhappy ones. It is also a fact that your personal life affects your moods.

When you are happy someone bumps you then also youll keep smiling and sya sab chalta hai and move on.. but when you are sad or angry at sumthing or sumone then you will get irritated at small things eventually someone will ask you whats the matter dear is everything ok? and youll have no choice but to smile and say "ya everything is fine".


Take out some time for your sweetheart and let him/her know that you care, there presence does matter . Everybody loves to be needed and cared for. So put in some effort to make your family life.. go for a trip, go for that shopping trip go for that outing.. go for the fancy dress competition of your kid..do whatever works for your family and trust me your work will bounce forward with a zing and it wudnt look like a burden to you too.

When in office think about work only and give it your heart. Leave on time and avoid traffic :D and when at home forget about the work. Trust me you will be rewarded with the most beautiful moments.

Keep smiling and B+ve and have a gr8 day!:)

Kites flying high in the big skies....





So Kites, became the first movie to debut at US top 10 chart! and i coulnt be mroe proud!. Hrithik Roshan has always got the looks of a hollywood hero and this movie with a foreign actress completed the set :). Both looked really cute. However i was really dissapointed with the dance sequence with kangana. There was so much scope there for a blockbuster number and hrithik has so much talent that he could have easily pulled of something akin to "Step up". Dunno how director missed out on that..
Sometimes when i watch movies and see some so obvious technical glitches that i really wonder how could anybody for heaven's sake miss that!!!.

I think the movie industry should explore new areas and try out new experiments. They should hire testers. Yes i am proposing an integration of IT and Entertainment biz. They could really provide they very useful feedback on some really obvious and stupid technical glitches made.. which unfortunately r really obvious on big screen.



Both are looking undeniably cute..:P But i must say i didnt expect the movie to do so well in foreign markets, now that it has it has got me thinking that instead of just waiting for hollywood to come here, we can just make bollywood so large that people will crave coming here.. anyways its entirely a possibility. Plus if seen from a purely economic point of view, if a movie is hit abroad you earn in dollars so anyway your profit doubles up. cool nai?

Twitter Rescues lost, injured triathlete

okay so here i was surfing news again and this headline caught my eyes.. and i was like wait a minute is this for real.

yeah it was, thats the power of networking. I think we can let go of the phrase that we are closer to virtual strangers and doesnt care about our friends now that we are so busy.
The instant update feature lets you share more with your network than any form of coummunication and of course cant beat actual taking with anything but isnt this fun to be able to share simple thoughts with so many people in a sec. I would definitely know to whom to turn next time i get stuck anywhere..:)
It a gr8 comradeship shown my her followers but then thats what friends are for.. isnt it :)

Real Life Engineers

Heres our "WOW" to the heros of INDIA:

Today we are featuring Mr. Jahanagir from Maharashtra.

Following are some snippets of the achievements(Source:http://nif.org.in/nifnews)
of this man who without any help turned scooters into super machines" the real life rancho, whose scooter was used by Amir Khan in 3 idiots.

"Belonging to a poor family, he had to give up studies after his 1st standard and do odd jobs to support the household. His father sent him to his aunt's place in Malkapur (in interior Maharashtra) to study. But they forced him 'to look after the cattle and made him do other household chores'.

Perhaps, this was a blessing in disguise for him. Life turned out to be his biggest teacher. His mind was always full of ideas despite his poverty and problems. He never thought any of these could actually be implemented, but no one could stop him from toying with new ideas."

"He built a scooter-based mobile spray painting device to get work done faster and easier. "I spend about Rs 4,000-5,000 to buy a second-hand scooter and convert it mainly into spray painting devices as they are in good demand. I have managed to sell about 5 spray painting machines for Rs 13,000-14,000," he says.

The unit is portable and can be taken anywhere he wishes. "I am looking for more buyers. There are people who have copied what I have done but I feel very proud to see them making use of a technology I devised," says Jahangir.

Today, he lends the 'scooter' to people in need. With one litre of petrol, an Ambassador car can be painted in one hour at half the charge of a normal painting."

This shows that there is solution to every problem and once again states that necessity is indeed the mother of invention!

However, if you read the article completely on the above provided link, you wil find that all this gr8 guys ever dreamed of is a nice house.

now even president met him but and so many so called vips but they all were not able to get hima home!!? what kind of educated leaders do we have ?
He is currently tryng to get some sponsors. I hope he gets some soon. India is really in need to produce more products. We need to become more product based isntead of service based.

If anybody out reading this article knows somebody who you think might be able to help Jahangir then please do contact him at:
e-mail: info@nifindia.org
Mobile number: 9422282938

Thank You. We will be back soon with another drop of rainbow.

Me and the World

Today i was reading the news and while surfing saw this "Visa on arrival scrapped for Indians in Malaysia".. (Source: IBN Live)

At first i was outraged, why are we always targetted!!. We contribute so much brains to other companies and then we r being discriminated. On reading the news further i realised that to some extent their authorities were completely justified in imposing this ban due to this illegal entries being commited there. These problems have been happening in many companies. Americans are scared since "we take their job".. wierd mentality if you ask me...

but the immigration problem is real, and in its base lies the fact that everbody want to live n an organised world where cleanliness and basic rights are accepted and cherished.
however, does sacrficing your self esteem justify it? How come everybody follow the same laws implemented in other countries but refuse to keep place clean in their own country . WHY?

WHY don't you feel even an ounce of guilt or consience prickle when you throw garbage on the road whereas shake in your booty when you are on foriegn soil?

Its not completely bleak picture there are loads of people out there who are working there arse off to help others, but they need our support. I think thats the least we can do. So with this thought today i changed the image on my blog to "Let The Freedom Rule!" created by myself :). Becoz i have a dream where Engineers will actually implement their education to make this Country a brain hub not just a outsourcing hub.

A place where innovation is appreciated, coveted and encouraged and recognised.

Cheers!
