As I Pass by – 04/05/10
There are few things I forgot to share with you all..
Getting bigger and bigger:
That’s how the landmark stores in different cities. It is the best bookstore I have ever seen. Always loaded completely with books and all the other things needed. I had a thought that the one in Spencer Plaza, Chennai is the biggest before I have seen the one in Citicentre, again in Chennai. And now it was re-written as I have went to the one in Hyderabad, which made me to think that that’s how bookstores should be. Its so spacious which gives us enough to peek into books we want to buy. When i looked from outside I thought its a small one as it was one another shop(I forgot the name… Swaram help me please… 🙂 ). But when I browsed through, I felt awesome.
A Chat with Policemen:
While I was returning from Hyderabad, I was happened to meet and have a chat with policeman who traveled with me. I was always skeptical about policemen and politicians and never talked with them. But its a fate that their professions were more influential on us than others. At start I was very cautious with each and every word I utter. But he is so freely said a lot about him and his job. He was returning to Madurai on a sudden leave from his duty in Andhra Pradesh on the Telungana issue. We talked a lot from the movies we watched recently to our homes, from telungana issue to Kasab and a lot more(About policemen too).
Generally people who travel in train never take food strangers. But he is kind enough to take the cake I have given. I couldn’t believe I have talked with him for some 3 1/2 hours by which the time went way past midnight. If I had talked with a person of any other profession like that I would have exchanged the phone number but my cautious nature didn’t allowed me to exchange phone number with him. I should have.. but…..
I have bought the book ‘Connect the dots’ through Flipkart.com and I am really amazed with the kind of discount they are providing and their speed of service. Within 3 days they have handed over the book to me. I tell you all, I have never seen such heavy discounts in any shops. If you know what book you have to buy, then you can go for online stores for sure.
There is another online bookstore called infibeam.com but I don’t know about their service though. I am thinking of ordering next book through them. I have become a free propaganda for these online stores but that’s the thing will happen if they provide quality service.
Back to reading and watching:
Yes, I am. I have started reading and finished ‘2 states’ last week and now I am reading ‘Zero percentile’. Its been a long time since I have finished a book, even though I started reading few. Another book I am reading side by side is ‘Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish’. Will write the reviews soon 🙂
There was a little stagnant in the amount of movies I am watching. Now that too cleared.. YAY. Will share my views on them soon.
Cocodle is a project of google which is created in the vision of helping under-privileged children. All we have to do is, do the search we do in google here. Though not attractive as google we can surely do a search/day here.
Tagline says ‘every search that you do through Cocodle gifts a smile somewhere‘. Why miss an easy opportunity to make one smile????
Just few months back it looked like our team will continue forever with the same members. But now all of a sudden, everybody were moving to other companies and 2 of my good friends were moving out of my project. We are very close to each other as we are together for over 2 years, we have shared a lot of good times and they have helped me a lot in solving issues. I am gonna miss them for sure. 2 years is pretty long time for a project in S/W industry and I am glad that we all spent this much time together.
In Pursuit of WC:
Indian cricket team has started their pursuit for WC in a perfect manner with each of our batsmen in red hot form. Dhoni was back to his usual self which is really great to see and I think this Indian team will go all the way of the bowlers are chosen properly.
CHAK DE INDIA!!!!
This is my 200th post and I like thank you all at this moment for all you reading my blog and encouraging me with your comments. Considering my not-so-good knowledge in English and the easiness with which I get diverted 200 posts is quite an achievement for me. It wouldn’t have been possible without you all for sure. Thank you all!!!
Its been quite a journey in blog world getting to know you all and your thoughts, I can say I am richer in person and knowledge. I hope that I am not boring you all with my posts. If you find anything boring, please let me know… I am assuring you that I will try to write it in better way.
PS: From now on, I am going to write the random ramblings under the title ‘As I pass by’. That’s the only thing I have done for this special 200th Post 🙂
