I don’t play my Guitar anymore

By on Jun 17, 2014 in Featured Articles | 0 comments

There was a time when not a single day passed without me playing my Guitar at least for 15 minutes. I realised that I don’t play my Guitar that often. I wonder what’s really changed. What I know for sure is because there aren’t any great songs one would want to play on Guitar. Yo Yo Honey isn’t meant for acoustic guitars, you see. The music is dead already. Every song out there seems to be 80% beats and 20% noise added by idiotic singers. I don’t play my guitar anymore. …and I hate myself for that.

Gravity (2013) Movie Review – It’s ‘One Time Watch’

By on Nov 9, 2013 in Featured Articles | 1 comment

Finally, I went to INOX (no IMAX in city, yet) to watch the movie that’s getting a lot of positive reviews from critics. The local INOX’s got a Gravity 3D show and I thought I’d watch that movie before upcoming Dhoom 3; which IMHO is a must watch. I thought Gravity would be a different type of a Hollywood movie; unfortunately it turned out to be just another Hollywood movie in which the protagonists get into an impossible to survive situation and then somehow manage to overcome all odds. Have you seen a pattern in all the Hollywood movies? The world or the protagonists is/are in danger and they go through various situations that are intended to make you think that the survival is impossible. Then heroically the protagonists save themselves (and world as well). The movie ends. Throughout the movie, I kept on waiting for a twist or a turn that’d make me want to be...

A Letter To My Friends From Israel

By on Sep 28, 2011 in Featured Articles, Wisdom | 10 comments

To Keren, Ori, Omri, Tomer, Yevgeni, Mor, Mayan, Maya, Maxim, Liora, Keren-Or, Ilya, Hen, Ephraim, Dov, David, Aviva, Anat and Jonny Shalom! Few weeks ago, I received an email from Ori introducing the ‘Once In A Lifetime 2.0’ project. At first, I thought it was just another mail and almost hovered the cursor over the ‘delete’ button. It seems that destiny had something great planned for me and I decided to read the mail again and then replied to it affirmatively. What followed turned out to be a ‘life changing’ experience for me and I can’t thank you enough for it. Yet, with my limited vocabulary, all I can say is thank you for the ‘Once In A Lifetime 2.0’ experience! I’m back to my routine after spending 11 wonderful days of my life with you and it feels I spent 11 years! I never thought I’d get so close friends in such...

Times Of India Goes Insane

By on Jun 9, 2011 in Featured Articles, Wisdom | 6 comments

I’m losing hope for this country. The nice are punished and wrong things are being promoted. Those who raise voice against corruption are brutally treated and even the reputed media seems to be the sycophant waiving their tails in front of the government. After noticing the following on Times Of India, I lost all my respect for India’s largest media house. See what Times Of India is promoting – Times of India is insanely asking people to raise their voice against the drinking age limit of 25 years! Instead of discouraging young generation not to consume alcohol, Times Of India is doing the opposite. I sometimes wonder, what’s wrong with Indians. Is India a country of insane people with low IQ? Drinking is bad and no matter how old you are – you SHOULD NOT DRINK! Drinking is bad and young people should be discouraged from consuming any kind of alcohol....

Kasab Invited To Watch India-Pakistan Cricket Match?

By on Mar 29, 2011 in Featured Articles, Wisdom | 3 comments

Manmohan Singh has proven beyond doubt that he’s an idiot. He’s invited Pakistani Top Officials to ‘enjoy’ the cricket match between the two countries and be friendly with them. I’m now wondering, why are we leaving Kasab alone? Let’s reserve a seat for him in the stadium. Come on! Let’s be nice with him. After all, I’m sure government doesn’t really consider Kasab guilty. He just fired randomly at people and people died. It’s okay. What’s the big deal? I hate being governed by idiots and being surrounded by idiots who elect those idiots again and again like idiots.

Manmohan Singh! Are You Insane?

By on Mar 26, 2011 in Featured Articles, Wisdom | 0 comments

Today’s TOI News “India’s Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Invites Pakistani PM Zardari To Watch Mohali India Vs. Pack Cricket Match” made me lose all my left-over respect for this elderly man. I’m not sure whether he’s doing it under pressure, but I’m quite sure he’d have said a big ‘NO’ and offered to resign from his position if he was being pressurized. I wonder why Mr. Singh thinks that Cricket will bring peace between the two continents? He’s hoping that this small Gesture will act as catalyst in bringing these two countries together. India’s done it several times but looks like Pakistan isn’t willing to be friends with India. I seriously feel sad for the mentality of these idiot politicians. They’ll continue to bring shame to India. Oh and the mean time, Kasab has applied Supreme Court and it’s...

Natural Arrogance

By on Mar 23, 2011 in Featured Articles, Wisdom | 4 comments

I’ve a huge problem. I’ve been told it’s my voice. When I speak, I speak like I’m issuing orders. When I’m requesting something – it sounds like I’m commanding. My casual discussions sound like arguments. My friendly suggestions sound like ‘solutions for faults in people’. I think it’s about my voice modulation. If anyone wants to believe me, I am a perfectly normal human who does not want to hurt anyone. In fact, I think I’d be wasting my own important time hurting others.   I don’t know the original of this ‘natural arrogance’ in me.When I laugh, it’s louder than normal humans. When I speak, my voice is louder than normal. I’d have been a politician and never needed a microphone. But that’s how my vocal box is. It’s natural. 99.99% of the times, I don’t even know that...

Is There Any Talent Left In India?

By on Mar 12, 2011 in Entrepreneurship, Featured Articles, Wisdom | 8 comments

Unlike most of you – I am serious about my country’s development. But the more trust I put in people, the more disappointment I get. I sometimes wonder whether there’s any talent left in India. I’ve been looking to hire talented people and all I get is copy-paste masters who think they can quickly fool any system and get away with it. The most disappointment comes from people who you think are ‘really’ talented. From Ankit Fadia to Hassan Ali, India seems to be full of people who want short cuts to everything. Frg8 it, we evn us shrtcts in typin. u knw wht i mean? But those words don’t come from my own hiring experience for my venture, but from my experience as a recruiter for the companies I worked with. Copy-pasting job would start right at the ‘Career Objective’ in resume to a friend of mine telling me how Infosys guys were...

Indian Supreme Court Stupidity: Aruna Shanbaug Case

By on Mar 7, 2011 in Featured Articles, Wisdom | 8 comments

Before you read the rest of this post, hold you breath for 1 minute. If you’re still alive, I hope you know how it feels when you desperately want to get out of situation – but you can’t. Aruna Shanbaug is under coma for over 37 years and she can’t do a thing on her own. Her friend, Pinki Virani had filed a case for Aruna’s Mercy Killing and today, Indian Supreme Course, has denied Euthanasia to Aruna Shanbaug. Supreme Stupidity, Indian Supreme Court! The judges said that Euthanasia is illegal in India and Aruna should be allowed to live until she dies natural death. Sucks! What do you think – [poll id=”20″]
