Having Fun on Dhiraj Birthday

Hey Friends! I had great fun on my colleague’s birthday in the office yesterday. We have been working together for about an year now and it feels as if its been a longtime. Most of all my bond with Dhiraj is special and deep. I want to tell you something about dhiraj, he is a guy with a golden heart, great mind and down to earth nature. You can identify him with his peculiar and always smiling face even after ups and downs of life. He is not only a great guy to work with but a person to take inspiration from! Have a look.

In loving memory of Bruce Lee : The Little Dragon

Bruce Lee my favorite was one of the greatest and most influential martial artists who ever lived. I was in eight grade the first time I saw a Bruce Lee film. It was Return of the Dragon. And, the fight scene between Chuck Norris and Bruce blew me away. He is classic, here is the video which contains rare Bruce lee pictures and videos

in Bruce Lee words
"Be formless... shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle; it becomes the bottle. You put it into a teapot; it becomes the teapot. Water can flow, and it can crash. Be like water, my friend...

Beautiful Differences Bond So Well!! (Pic)

Choose your friends by their character
and your socks by their color.

Choosing your socks by their character make no sense,
And choosing your friend by their color is unthinkable.

Delhi NCR shudders at dawn - Earthquake of 4.3

I am here again but to describe a small natural calamity which happened in the Delhi NCR region. For those who have been reading my blogs and have been my precious readers I would like to share this small news. Delhi NCR region faced an earthquake this dawn – Monday 26th November! The Richter scale measure showed 4.3 hit. Around 4.48AM I sat jolted when I saw things shaking. The window panes started shaking noisily and we ran out to see what happened. As we went out there were many people outside already and it was all cool as always in a few minutes but the people stood shaken till quite sometime and went back to sleep with a shudder. Though this is a natural phenomenon in Gurgaon specially since the city keeps feeling such low on Richter scale tremors but the high-rise building residents as usual felt the tremors a little more! Thankfully we all are safe and I am all here to write my experiences of this EARTHQUAKE to you !! Keep in touch Readers.

A FATHER WHO 'MARRIED' HIS DAUGHTER

A Muslim who married his 15-year-old daughter and made her pregnant had to be rescued from angry villagers in the Indian state of West Bengal, police say

Afazuddin Ali, 36, has five children - three of them daughters. A few months ago Ali married his eldest daughter, telling his wife Sakina that Allah had ordained him to do so. Not convinced by his story, his angry neighbours in Kasiajhiora village nearly lynched him for what they said was a clear case of incest.
Marriage within the nuclear family is forbidden in Islam.

'Divine sanction'

"He is a deeply religious man and will never lie in the name of Allah," Sakina told a court in the northern district of Jalpaiguri.

"I agreed to his marriage with our eldest daughter when he invoked divine sanction," she said.

But this story has failed to impress the other villagers.

"We didn't know she was married so when we confronted his wife, she told us about the bizarre marriage six months ago," Sheikh R…

Deepika Padukone - My New Favorite

Deepika Padukone the new diamond in Bollywood’s Arena. Deepika is a Supermodel and going to be the next star in bollywood’s Sky. The new queen of my heart (after Aishwarya Rai) is making her Bollywood debut with the upcoming movie ‘Om Shanti Om’ opposite Bollywood King Shah Rukh Khan. With her dimpled smile and expressive outlook, Deepika has already won lots of hearts and believe me she’s going to rock the Bollywood – and not only Bollywood, she’s going to rock the world. It is something special for any debutant to have such media attention even before the release of the forthcoming movie.

She is the daughter of former Badminton Champion Prakash Padukone. Her mother is a travel agent and she has a younger sister, named Anisha. She attended school in Dehradun.

How to Love

Love is a strange thing. It can be the most amazing feeling in the world, or it can really hurt, but in the end love is something most, if not all of us, will face. While there are many different ways to define love and there are many different ways to love someone (even yourself), here is a general guide to loving. Love is the continual act of unconditionally putting the needs of others before your own

Steps

Say it. When you utter the words "I Love You", do they carry with them the desire to show someone you love them or do they carry with them what you want to feel.

Empathize. Put yourself in someone else's shoes. Rather than impose your own expectations or attempt to control them, try to understand how they feel, where they come from, and who they are.

Love unconditionally. If you cannot love another person without attaching provisos, then it is not love at all, but deep-seated opportunism. Your interest is not in the other person as such, but rather in how that person ca…

Who will be the winner of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2007?

Hi Friends. This is Rohit Tripathi again with final blog on Sa Re Ga Ma Pa challenge 2007. We are just 24 hours away (IST) to know the winners name of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2007. Who do you think will win the Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2007, Aneek Dhar, Raja Hassan or Amanat Ali?

As we discussed earlier in my last blog that Raja Hassan is my favorite singer on Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2007 he’s indeed fabulous. But it’s only my choice you may think differently and have your on opinion.

The competition is extremely tough between Aneek, Raja and Amanat. Amanat is a trained singer while Raja and Aneek are not, but still they are rocking the world. They all have huge fan following him. And I will say all the three Raja, Aneek and Amanat are the best-found talents and are best in thier respective areas. All three are winner and future of Indian Music Industry.

Nagarro’s Headquarter is in home of major software companies Silicon Valley with offices in Chicago, Atlanta New York, Freiburg Germany, and Kista Sweden. Nagarro’s Development Center is in Gurgaon The cyber City.

What does an employee expect? A good work along with the good packages. Think about those companies who not even provide you the work and money even. According to me if you have the intention of real learning along with good packages, Nagarro is the best place to work with. Sitting idle and less money many options are there in the market, go grab them.

I have spent 15 months in the Nagarro and currently working in the same company.
For a fresher Nagarro is a very good company. I don’t know about any other company that asks freshers about their technology preference before putting him to the work. Isn’t it a very good point about the Nagarro.

Nagarro has been ranked 25th in the…

Twenty20 Championship - India Chak Laaya World Cup!!

Finally we have done it. Congratulations to Team India they have given us T20 world cup for cheer. It was a dream match, world cup final between the archrivals India VS Pakistan. Under captaincy of M.S Dhoni our young tigers have given us a world cup that we are waiting for last 23 years. What else an Indian cricket lover want in his life.

Man of the Match Pathan Said "We never thought we will play together in a final -- and against Pakistan -- and we would win it,"

We are the world champions!!!!!! Chak Diya India Ne – Rohit Tripathi

After weeks of slugging it out in Sony Entertainment Television's most popular reality show, Indian Idol,Prashant Tamang has won the coveted crown.

Chak De India - Boost to Indian Hockey!

Hi Friends, finally I got a chance to watch the awesome movie Chak De. It was the 2nd movie after Rang De Basanti which touched my heart. The movie was full of thrill and zeal - call it the great sportsman spirit which has been exhibited fully here. For me, this is one of Shah Rukhs best performances after Swades and Devdas. Only in these three films has he shown a mature attitude to acting which is very calm style and a lot personal in nauture. The girls also did very well specially the haryanvi girl Komal Chautala and the Punjabi girl (Jasmeet or gurupreet? I actually have forgotten her name) but they all did a fantastic job.

I think they all were definitely nervous while acting with King Khan but in the end they proved themselves. Another good thing about the movie was the feeling of belonging to ONE nation which was promoted by Shah Rukh Khan in the begining of the movie when all the hockey team members were asked to introduced themselves.There was only one girl who said her name …

awesome beauty each year.

The Niagara is a fairly young river, only 12,000 years old!, a microsecond in geological time. The Niagara Escarpment, which was created by erosion is much older.

India Idol 3 has also found his place in the final two contestants. They are from eastern part of India. Amit Paul is from Shillong and Prashant Tamang is from Darjeeling. Both Shilong and Darjeeling are among the under developed cities of India. So, the people of both these areas are very happy now and they are praying for their local contestants. It is nice to see that people are passionate about their local stars. They want something to celebrate and the people of eastern part of India do not get this kind of opportunity a lot.

Britney Spears VMA Performance - Watch the video

If video is not availabale here than try this link to watch the video
http://www.dailymotion.com/related/4946683/video/x2y5nf_britney-spears-gimme-more-live-vmas_events

Britney Spears' new single "Gimme More" isn't such a bad song. The remix with TI is even better. Britney's performance of "Gimme More" at MTV's Video Music Awards, on the other hand, was really just... depressing.

In fact, the word "performance" is such a vast overstatement of what Britney did, I don't even know what word I could put in its place to adequately describe what really happened. Is there a verb for "show up and look incredibly unenthused while lip-synching badly and occasionally walking to another part of the stage?"

Wearing practically nothing and throwing in the occasional bump & grind, Britney should, in theory, come off as a mesmerizing vixen. Instead, she just seems tired and almost resentful to be there, as if to say, "Sure, you can wak…

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha to Aisa Laga – Rohit Tripathi

Friends yesterday I had seen a girl on the streets of Delhi. Kya kahna friends she was as beautiful as Aishwarya. I was returning from my hometown to Gurgaon and I had to take a bus from the railway station to my place. I was on my way when she was coming in front of me. She wore a blue jeans and a black top, hair left open flowing with the breeze. She was in the prime age of about 20 or 21 years. As I saw her coming towards me, my eyes were awestruck seeing her unmatched beauty and the way she delicately glided through the street like a fairy.
I simply could not take my eyes off her and seemed glued to her like a magnet. God certainly creates human beings matching the beauty of a fairy. She seemed to be an angel stepping on earth with the purity and sacredness of heaven oozing out of her face. I swear friends; she was the most beautiful among all the girls I have ever seen and would ever see. I am sure. Someone has aptly expressed the thoughts which have come across my mind as I saw h…

Ex Super Model Now A Beggar : The tyrannies of time

When we think of the world of Bollywood and fashion we think of glamour, parties, rich life style but there are murkier waters underground. Modeling is associated with a dark, ugly side, which remains unseen to most people outside. A glamorous lifestyle, high-profile parties and contacts that come as a perk with a model's job do not always translate into money.

Here is a story exposing the ugly side of the fashion world.

Geetanjali Nagpal , a former super model who once walked the ramp with Sushmita Sen, is forced to lead a desolate life on the streets of Delhi . She now dresses in shabby clothes and begs for scraps for a living.

Daughter of a navy officer, Geetanjali studied at Mount Carmel School in Delhi and later graduated from Lady Sriram College .

Little is known about the former model's personal life and the circumstances that led to her ruin. However, sources say she lost assignments and got into drugs to cope with stress.

Geetanjali studied fashion designing at South Delhi…

Brad Pitt has been attacked by a female fan during the Venice Film Festival.

Pitt was making an appearance in the lead-up to the premiere of his film, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, when the redhead barged through a security cordon.
The Daily Mail said the 20-something woman managed to get her arms around Pitt's neck before she was dragged away by security.

While her motives appeared harmless — and she seemed unrepentant about the act afterwards — the breach was a serious embarrassment for Pitt's security team.

It is also another unfortunate incident in what is becoming an unhappy European excursion for Pitt, who has aroused the ire of the Italian press corps for refusing to remove his sunglasses for a photo shoot.

Photographers deserted the photo call in mass protest when Pitt passed the offending lenses to co-star Casey Affleck, who put them on.

He has since earned the nickname Pitt Bullo from the local media: bullo translates as 'bully' from Italian.

The love that we share
Is a dream come true
A love to cherish
For me and you.


As our love grows
Like a flower from a bud
You are in my heart
You are in my blood.


You flow through my body
Along every vein
Soaking deep within
Like the summer rain.


As we walk through life
Hand and hearts entwined
To the place of our dreams
Our souls are lined.


Lined with lots of love
And sprinkles of lust
Friendship and fun
And total trust.


We will move forward
From this day on
With love in our hearts
We will be one.

Keri McIntyre, a Youtube Hot for Teacher Sensation

But all that fame is not what Miss Keri McIntyre wanted:

When Keri McIntyre signed on to be a teacher, she never imagined she would become a YouTube sensation. Someone videotaped her fifth-grade class’s graduation at Winding Springs Elementary in 2006 and edited it to the Van Halen hit “Hot For Teacher.”

“I'm not doing anything except going on stage. The man zooms in on my butt. He keeps replaying it over and over,” she said.

The three and a half minute clip [has been removed from Youtube] has now been viewed more than 187,000 times.

“Every day this is allowed to go on, a thousand more people view it and make degrading comments,” McIntyre said.

It’s the comments that really hurt.

“This one says, ‘Love sexy teachers. Always wanting to help you out,’” McIntyre read. “This one says, ‘He's probably a janitor who checks out hot young teachers.’”
