That’s today. I am allowed to stay home to exercise my right to vote. I wake up early to avoid the late morning rush at the polling booth. I reach with my wife and kid(it’s a stroll for my kid. He’s spared of deciding whom to vote for another 17 years). For me it’s a difficult task. I’ve not made up my mind yet and have no guidelines to makeup my mind as to whom

The smelly kind. Where do you find them you said? Well, you don’t. If you are in Mumbai, and you travel suburban, they find you………. It happens in the evening. The maddening crowd while entering the trains. The struggle to get the foothold while in it. Juggling between hand straps  above to get into a proper posture to avoid a slip disc. An between all this, trying to get a breathe of fresh air. That,

Rejoice Android and iOS users. Microsoft had reduced the price of their Office Mobile package to “zero”.  Yes, you read it right. Its for free. The package contains MS Word and MS Excel, working within their limitations  when on tablet/mobile. The package is free for home use whereas business users are expected to pay. I hardly see that happening but it seems lost fortunes have forces the great MS towards such steps. Whatever the case

Who is John Galt? Seems like a very relevant question for current times. More so with all the work one Mr. Kejriwal and his band of common people have been doing for Indian politics currently. It seems that the John Galt of India is hell bent on  shrugging off corruption and malpractices in the governance. Its been long time since I typed few sentences condemning corruption in India. Just didn’t feel that it would be

Refurbished…..Should I Buy?

  I would definitely buy. Why what’s wrong in those products? I get good great value for money. I get warranty. Why shouldn’t I buy? Let me elaborate. (Disclaimer: Again as I always say, not promoting any specific company) During our search for a netbook for my friend, he decided to lookout for options like Macbook Air. But the price seemed too high for a netbook. Then it stuck upon me that Apple sells out

Many times on weekends I wake up and have a feeling of not wanting to sweat for a good breakfast. But then I don’t feel like living on cereals and milk. That’s when the egg comes to my rescue. But it gets pretty boring if you have plain egg with nothing to accompany it. Enter, bread. Brown bread. Of late I’ve been experimenting on cooking egg into the toast and the results have started to

One two three four…get on the dance floor. Set to get a lot of people on the dance floor. Rohit Shetty’s new release starring Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone, high in action (yes, lots of scorpios and mahindra classics involved too) is a signature Shetty movie. Nothing much in the story here. Same old man, women, meet, love, opposition, struggle etc etc. crap. I don’t reveal movie stories. It’s for the people to watch. The

It has rained this year. Rained a lot in most of India. Just at the beginning of season. Within two weeks of heavy rain, most of the reservoirs in Mumbai were full  to brim and over flowing. A good sign for Mumbai since the rain had struggled to fill them up last year, and many previous years, leading to scarcity and water cuts in the following summers. Mumbai shouldn’t face water shortage next summer. Or

Micromax Canvas-4 : A Preview

It has its own microsite, I think a first for and Indian brand phone. Enough hype was created for everyone, including me, to talk about it.

Micromax finally launched the much awaited Canvas-4. “CAN” life really begin now? Lets find
