Rode 323.66kms in 15hours (a 2 day ride to Nagarjuna Sagar from Hyderabad and back)
One awesome Ride!
Best part; Lost about 1.5kilos during this ride(though we ate a LOT of food), feel proud that i helped someone.
Worst part; Had to do some Mud Fighting(read below, its long!).
This post is to Bollywood as well as my fellow country men and woman.
To the Bollywood first- Guys, what the heck is wrong with you all? sometimes you talk like you are great people, know only to do good things and can lead people in the right way. But when it comes to actually doing the deed. You play dead?
Fuck Man. Seriously! – Animals are better than us. If one Crow is dying or dead, all the crows come together. When one of your own is being bombarded with threats by some goondas, you all play dead?
Ya we know you have professional rivalries. Professional rivalries should be only be kept to professional matters. But when one of your own is being targeted by some ass hole goons – where the heck were you all? Don’t have balls to come out?
For those who don’t know me: I’m writing this as an Indian First, then an Andhra Pradesh Native and then an Hyderabadi.
This part of the post is to all the Telengana agitators and supporters – NOTHING is going to change people. It is you who should change. All you will be left with is dirty politics, corruption and naxalism. TRS or Congress or any other party is doing what ever you think ‘they are doing for good’ is NOT for your good but for the temporary power and to make something out of your sentiment. They are going to LOOT you. Everyone has a regional sentiment. That doesn’t mean you should go on the roads, protest and pelt stones at whatever you can when some selfish man says we need a separate state so that he too can be in power, don’t you think of how is it going to benefit you? How is it going to be different? Unless you are planning to send out all Andhra people out of Hyderabad and occupy their homes and properties. Is that your plan? Because I remember very well KCR saying this a few days back "Andhrawala Bhagoo, Telenganawala Jaago". Is that what you are up to? If that’s the case, then bring it on. We are all used to fighting for everything right? Fight with other states, fight with other religions, fight with other castes, fight with everyone you can whenever you get a chance. That is how we are always in India right? Bring It On!!!

I thought I read it wrong or it was a spelling mistake for LCD in an online advertisement that I spotted on Mashable.com
But after I clicked the ad and reached Samsung Website page, it was evident that Samsung really meant LED TV. Well, I didn’t know there were LED TVs.
These LED TVs range from $2300 – $3800 (40″ to 55″).
I wish I own one of these ultra slims but my current slim fit Samsung TV (29″) is doing really well.
Update: These TVs were recently launched. Also to be available in India soon.
Me and my wife have the same kind of mindset (lucky for me) and have been thinking we should do something to contribute for a greener tomorrow. But how? Where do we start? Our first thought was avoiding the use of plastic bags completely. Plastic bags have become a way of life here in Hyderabad and of course all over India. You only use plastic bags even though you have a choice. You use plastic bags because they come for free with shopping and you don’t have to carry anything while going to shopping. Well its easy that way right? But lately, we should learn that each family can use a significant number of plastic bags every year (about 200-500). Yes that’s a very little number of bags in an estimated 5 Billion used worldwide every year. That’s 500,000,000,000 ? That’s 1 million bags every minute? Lets not think at a level of filling the underground drainage with plastic bags and overflowing drains. Talk about destroying the planet with plastic, trash and pollution. Like the movie Wall-E?
Avoiding plastics may be a very small thing. But I guess its a good start for a better tomorrow.
Like Al Gore says in his presentations,
Our children might think..
“What were our parents thinking?”
We have to hear that question. Now!
Ya we heard that! Did you?
We want to spread the word as we follow it. But no resources are available. I mean a jute bag or a cloth bag with a message on it about avoiding plastics. Where do we get something like that? And how do we let others also use those bags with a message? How can we make our thought bigger? Much Bigger? How?
Share your thoughts and let us know your suggestions. And in the first place let us know if you are with us in this?
I Don’t know where to start but before I write about our recent Delhi-Nainital Trip, I wanted to write about this because this is more heart felt than anything else.

you should be wondering right? I was blogging pretty heavily when I started blogging. And then soon I was standing on several boats at once and could not do anything in my free time in the right way. Finally I decided to drive one boat at a time. So, lets see how it all goes.
Just cleaned up a lot of un-necessary plugins and features on the blog which were generating a lot of database hits and slowing down the loading of the page.
By the way, When I say a boat, I mean my small sites which I work on the weekends.

April 5th has been hard for two people since 8 years now. Two people fell in love long ago having no idea about the huge huge obstacles that they will be facing in years to come. With great patience and hope, they crossed every hurdle and took all the pain. But this year things have changed. Their patience and love proved they are born for each other. Their parents accepted and appreciated their relationship. Now they are together for the first time on their Birthday(April 5th). It is no one but, myself and my sweetheart.
A Very Happy Birthday to us.
