The Rise of Machines

So finally its here. The rise of machines. With too much of an advance in technology, and the help of few virus coders, we have managed bring to life, the fight in the virtual world. It seems like a scene straight out of the hollywood film, but its for real these time. According to reports bredo a

Beware of these Conmen

A very recent incident. A person approached my aunt and informed her that a cheque has arrived in the name of her son which was of the value 25000 rs. He gave a well rehearsed explanation of what the cheque was for, and managed to convince my aunt. But the clause he put was, that

The DSI

It’s The Divided States of India. Yes, inline with the united states of america…..except in the opposite direction. We surely are heading for a change. First, we didn’t have any social, economical, political, international or any other issues to deal with, so various states thought of renaming their cities, heritage buildings etc.  Then since there

Power Troubles

The discovery of coal, crude oil, natural gas and the research in their refinement processes was the most important factor contributing towards the progress of the industry and civilisation in the previous century. Without these discoveries, this high speed jet age wouldn’t have been possible. So, where are we heading? Is it going to be

As if the revolt by his own nephew, Raj, and by the major percentage of the marathi maanoos(who followed Raj, and some who took exception to Bala’saheb’s’ remarks towards Sachin Tendulkar(who by the way is considered God in major part of India)) was not enough for saheb, one more person of the Thackery family structure has put down the papers.

No Terrorists Here…

A Banquet for the Prime Minister of India and his wife, hosted by the POTUS, did go quite well as per sources. Except for ‘one small tolerable’ incident. The Party was gatecrashed by a US couple. Michaele and Tareq Salahi. Now as per, the US ways of dealing with such incidents, the name Tareq would surely have rung some

Speaking of Joker……

…….I am pleased to inform that the great golden circus is back in the city. Any person staying in Mumbai(India) can have the opportunity to watch it with their kids. The quality of it, I have doubts about, but kids would love it. This is one of the rare chances that we get, as the
