Being a marine engineer by profession, my job took me around the world in past five years. This particular incident at an Argentine sea port, Necochea. Me and an electrical officer had gone for a city visit in the evening. A very good and non crowded city it is. Both of  knew only one word in spanish. Gracias. So with this asset in our hand we were going about the city. Well, time came for

As we know, Mohammad Rafi, the top class playback singer of yesteryears, was also a contributor as a play back singer for marathi cinema. I personally love his marathi songs, ‘hasa mulanno hasa’ and ‘haa chanda jivala laavi pise’. Its difficult to make out that this person was a non marathi play back singer. His entry to marathi cinema was with a quite examplary story. To whom, I will let you guess. He was asked

Most of us have seen elephants up close, rode them, fed them and had fun whenever we visited the zoo in Mumbai at Jijamata Udyan.

Just due to perssuasion of my brother, I pour in this post. Its about the issue picked up by our represented jokers, at the assembly, the temple of our constitution.  I have finished pondering upon the incident.

Someone wanting to speak in a language as per his wish!!

I am travelling in a first class compartment of the Mumbai suburban railways, and two youngsters come aboard at a particular station. By the way of their dressing it seems that they were in a wrong compartment. But who am I to judge. May be they are rich enough to travel by first class but not educated enough to have the right sense of dressing. But the people around me seem to take more than

Last time Akai had entered Indian market, the consumers and competitors were taken by surprise when they launched tv’s with price tag of less than 10000 rs. This time around what should we expect?

Yesterday I made a grab for the offer by our nations largest mobile service  provider, Airtel, enabling me to make calls at a pulse of 1 second and the rate for which being 1 paisa. This offer has been made to compete the Tata Docomo’s offer of 1paisa / second call rate, and since I didnt want to get a new number I went for the offer by Airtel. But, the shock I got, when I found

During my school days, i pursued the hobby of stamp collection. I had   very good collection of stamps from more than 70 countries and were neatly arranged in a notebook with any sort of info available. But during my college years I didnt carry forward this hobby much, so I exchanged this book for a Micheal Jackson’s audio cassette. I had played that cassette again and again till it got damaged. For now I use a
