This is to formally announce that I have bought a MP4 Player. At last. The Google(yeah i call search and google in the same breath) was on for last 2 years for a durable yet cost efficient. I planned to buy one of the guys from Transcend stable or SanDisk. But after reading the reviews the sounded like more of a mediocre than a full fledged or great PMP. Then I went for the guys who revolutionized the product Apple Computers. But they were too costly. So the last option was to choose a product which was cost effective yet great. Thus came 3 players Phillips, Samsung and Creative. Out of which Samsung is not available in India. I was searching for a minimum of 2 GB video capable PMP. But when I saw the Creative Zen 4 GB it was much better than the others. Some of the online reviews said its just a little below the famed iPod Nano. So I went ahead and bought from the product from http://ebay.in. Though I am yet to get the product in my hands hope that the product is as good as the reviews say. To be on the safer side I have even bought a pair of Creative Ep-630 earphones to go with the product.

The song above is one of the songs I am planning to listen . Thus this post. :)

Why i hate chat

I would like to meet her in real life and spent some time with her but….

This is a serious story about one of my friend and myself. This friend of mine has not met me in person. But we have seen each other, talked to each other, sang some duets and even fought. But never met in person. I dont know if that was because we never had time or she felt that i am not worth the time.

Those who are confused or gawking than here is full story. The story starts when i was student of school of science and a fan of the term called internet and its intricacy. The research of same led me to a new dimesion called yahoo and introduced me a long forgotten term called Y! Chat.

After a few days of jumping at yahoo rooms i came across a room where people were actually using the chat features to full use. These guys were playing Antrakshri using yahoo voice chat. Voila i was hooked. This was much better than adult 20+ room. People from diffrent part of the world singing out of tune. It was fun. Though no1 knew who is who. If the other person is sitting in india or US of A. We knew them by their chat id than their name. Names were rarely exchenged and and phone numbers were even rare.

But i was a fool who made friend there too and met some of them in person. It was a co-incidence that one fo them was from the same city and we met over. I have always thought of that person as an old person by the way he talked. but was shocked to find a smart young guy of 20 something standing there. For those who are thinking that what a fool i am, than guys mind you, Friends are rare and make sure that you make some whenever you can.

BTW we are deviating from the main point of our story. The story is about the person whom i have called Dream (I am yet to know who she really was what was her real name). We met on the same place called yahoo chat. we used to talk more than a regualr chatter should do. we became something more than a friend and she started to trust me more than i could have handled. May this was the trust that had kept us together for so long. And one fine day i told her its all over and she was gone. PUFF!!! lost for ever. gone!!

I would like to meet her in real life and spent some time with her but….

I am sorry

This is post for all those ladies whom i have done anything wrong. Either intetionally, unintensionally, in love, in friendship, as a foe, mentally, emotionally or anything in between.

For those who are thinking why such an apologetic post? than it the aftermath of Ranbir Kapoor starrer “Bachna aie Haseeno.”  Working for Game Development Division of Microsoft and takes off on a lonnnnnnnnnnnggggg leave of 6 month, just out of guilt feeling of all his mistakes in his life. the hearts he broke and to ask for forgiveness from the gals. Man! this guy has got guts!! Nah not because he is out there and playing i am best but 6 months of leave without telling any one. If microsoft is allowing long weekend of that sort than please refer me there. I have worked on all the OS and once upon a time worked on a Game Porting. 😛 (Yeah i am bragging).

The weekend that went by had loads of fun and we were out to watch the movie Bachna aie Haseeno. No comment on the story, Movie, direction, actors. Just a quick review. (My First)

Bachna Aie haseeno start out with the son dancing to the tunes of his father. Its in literal terms the title song is filmed on father Rishi Kapoor in the movie “Hum Kisi Se Kam Nahin.” Than start a line of comedy and fun filled part of the life ranbir kapoor (Raj). He meets 3 gals @ various stages of his life. Just to meet them again. Watch the movie to know what the above line means. The movie full of comedy and boring scenes. some places you feel oh yeah that was the way i used to think at that phase of my life.

My advice Go with an open mind without any pre thoughts about the movie and you will surely love it. All in all its and out and out Raj Shree Production “Romantic Comedy.”

Warming the back side

In the last weeks my friends ask me what do u do at the office. And my reply is warming my back in the AC cooled room. For those who never got the meaning I am on the bench. Well those who think bench is the best place on the earth and there is nothing better than bench. You don’t have to do anything just sit, surf, read a book and go home early. But what about getting bored. Where you are alone and people in the next cubicle is working. So guys who think bench is the best place think again!!! cos you are right!! It is indeed the best place.

How many of you have seen a software engineer coming home at 6 o’ clock in the evening. None. If you have seen one he/she must be on the bench. I know how good bench feels. You can chat for long hours without any dead lines, except its time to go home. You take a break from coffee machine and not a break for coffee. You can come late and go early. Lunch hour is of one hour and sometimes you can stretch it a bit more and no one will complain.

If you are really bored than you can have your creative juices flow and write a blog just like the way I am doing at present. And if the money of you have received as so called salary is more than you can spend. Than use the precious band width of the company and become a stock market player. Start earning a little more. It would be an extra income without any problem!! Those who are bit plump go ahead and learn a new game. That could be either TT, football, basketball, Chess (against a human) as most of the IT companies have got at least one of the game. Attend gym if there is one. And yes you have time so downlaod some music so that when you are in project you can listen to music when the boss is shouting his heart out.

So those who think they are on bench and having a bad time guys wake up. It’s the golden period and please don’t waste it getting boring.

BTW I have a good news to share by the next week I will be in a project. Bye bye bench. It was the worst time alone sitting.

Of Dreams and Dreamer

This is just what I believe about my life. Sometimes when I think about it I feel what an ass I have been to play with so and the next second I think whatever I have done is correct either it was love, friends, education, investment, job or anything in between.

Some of you may say that my last post was about what all we think and how our life should be. But guys forget it not that we often look back and cherish that happy moments, cry on those sad moments but its not always but just once in a while. So it was one of those days when I was thinking how have I fared in life.

Than came this realization that I have hurt of loads people down the lane. One of them was a Dream. It was the time when Google Mail was the new kid on the block and yahoo was the biggest star on the horizon. Half of the world thought that yahoo and msn chat is best thing happened to us after telephone J, including yours truly. I was in my 3rd year of engineering and the yahoo chat rooms recorded much more attendance than college classes. It was not just type and talk chat but it was full duplex voice chat (sometimes I love those techie jarons). Most of us used to play antrashri and talk out heart out. There I met this girl who had a chat id not so common.

She had a name, which meant Dream and it was truly like dream that I met someone online and talked. It was fun and than I started getting calls. The numbers from which the calls came was unknown to me but the voices were known. They were the same people who I have met online and talked and one of them was Dream. The same Dream I have talked to and wanted to see in life. But as the saying goes “ man proposed and god deposed” it was same with me some problem and we parted out ways without meeting.

So a story long forgotten remain in the Dream and I became a Dreamer. Thank you my Dream where ever you are. Sorry for whatever I have wrong.
