Happy and Sad Month

February started with a trip to Pune to celebrate my first wedding anniversary with D. Had thought of posting on that day i.e. 4th Feb but was too busy spending time in the real world :) I made a video on our first wedding anniversary celebration for my readers :) Didn’t have time to associate an audio with it.

Blogging And Me

A blog is a type of website that is usually arranged in chronological order from the most recent ‘post’ (or entry) at the top of the main page to the older entries towards the bottom. ~Darren Rowse

Well that is a “traditional” and “literal” definition of blogging, isn’t it? My first impression of blog was a web-space where people wrote on various topics and everyone had their own web space to do it. So I guess this definition is better :-

A blog is merely a tool that lets you do anything from change the world to share your shopping list.

First Bloggers’ Meet and Special Day

Actually this is a part of my Summer Vacation series but as it needed a special mention I didn’t title the post as Part 2.

7th June 2009 :- Arrived in Pune and after a lot of hotel search, checked into one. It had wonderful surroundings..peaceful and green. And the hotel rooms were good too.

Borrow Sorrow

Recently I read a tag about writing 10 things that put you off or get your goat or are emotional atyachaars, at many blogs. No, I am not going to do the tag. Instead I am just going to focus on one habit of many people that irks me very much – Borrowing.

Neither a borrower, nor a lender be; for loan oft loses both itself and friend, and borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry.~William Shakespeare

25 Random Things and Best Post

Eye-in-sty-in tagged me to do the infamous 25 Random Things tag which  everyone seems to be doing on Facebook. [Here is a funny video on that] Apparently someone brought that tag in blogosphere.

So here goes….

1. I have very low tolerance for any sort of chilli in food.But I don’t like bland food either.

2. I am very possessive about my stuff and I don’t like borrowers except my loved ones.

3. Few months back I bought Chandamama Collector’s Edition. This collection features some of the most memorable stories in the last 60 years. Yup! I like Chandamama even now. :)

Vishesh aka the Smiley Man tagged me to do the Smiley Tag. His rules are :-

So all you have to do is post some funny pics/write something which will make people smile and/or laugh. And ya you have to begin the post with a line of smileys like how I have done

Now, I don’t have skills of writing humor like Dinesh or Nikhil. So I will stick to posting funny videos and images. (You can check out my humorous posts under the tag HUMOR on my side bar)

World Wide Web – (Not) Bringing People Closer

Most of my friends are from my college life. After college, all went their separate ways. Everyone is getting married, some already have. The first marriage invitation I got was from someone whom I’ve known since class 2, who had gone to same college as mine and was my room mate. She sent an e-invitation i.e. a scanned copy of her marriage’s invitation card. After that, many such electronic invitations from different friends followed. Aarghhh!

internet_explorer“The Internet is becoming the town square for the global village of tomorrow.” So said Mr.Bill Gates. Through Internet, one is able to befriend people with similar tastes,ideas,thoughts and personalities, chat with them and form strong and sometimes everlasting relations. Some just add up people arbitrarily. People living abroad are able to talk and see their family back home with the help of webcams and Internet. Communication has become lot faster and easier with the help of e-mail. In short, the technology is bringing people and families closer as suggested by the Pew Internet and American Life Project research findings.
