360 turns 0

360.Yahoo sent me a notification that they will be completely closing their 360.yahoo.com service by July and will no longer support it .  However painful this news was, I’ve bumped yahoo up on my list since they were kind enough to arrange a migration package from 360.yahoo to wordpress.com.  I guess I will start loving this new and advance interface. Hopefully, I will be mumbling some “stuff” more often. 🙂

Good bye 360 !

Sentinel to Cellphone Cancer



Anthony Grant, one of my friendly ex-employees (and mentor to me) is quite an enthusiastic person and not to forget a brilliant brain with friendly smile. I was shocked to know that he is figting BRAIN CANCER. Initially it started, a couple of months back, as short term head aches, which were ignored initially. Later on, he found that there was a pattern to these head aches. Diagnosis and test results showed that he had 7cm x 7cm x 5 cm tumour. Doctors declared it as 3rd GRADE. (on the fence). He has been a fighter and I am sure he would kick that \”bastard\” out of his head and flush it BIG TIME, my prayers are all for him.



Here are few of his doctor\’s recommendation:

  •  Avoid cell phones if possible, use HOME PHONE (not even chordless).
  •  Bluetooth helps, but there have been cases reported, so avoid that too ! (SHOCKED !)
  •  Heat your food on stove rather than Microwave
  •  Do not use plastic/foam containers while heating food in microwave – use glassware (CORELLE)
  •  Do not use plastic wrap over the glassware while in microwave
  •  Do not stand in front of a microwave when in use
  •  Advice your barber to use scissors instead of machine !
  •  many more ..

Recently I have been doing a little bit research on cellphone usage and its effects on brain cancer. (GOVERNMENT DENIES KNOWLEDGE ! )

Next few links SHOULD alarm you and please for your own sake, READ THEM !

– Cellphone radiation can boil eggs in 65 mins ! (Click: Source: Russian website)
– LIST OF PHONES AND THEIR RADIATION SEVERITY ! (Click: check your phone SAR level at CNet.com )
– Cellphone-cancer research = Tobacco v2.0 (Click: source: CNet.com)

Wiki site > http://www.skepticwiki.org/wiki/index.php/Cell_phones_and_brain_tumors

Read the book review by Adam F. Jewell (might need to scroll down a bit) : (Click: source Amazon.com)

Forget the technical part, havent you felt it ?
– No privacy (people trying to sneak into your life details)
– Anytime, Everytime (always expect call)
– Infiltrating your deserving space and freedom (calls at wrong time)
– Couldn\’t justify the time with friends and family (getting those hey-whats-up-i-m-bored calls) – Disrespecting yourself (relying on it more than ourselves)

5 months back, soon after my birthday, I had decieded and I have successfully reduced my cell phone usage to almost more than half. Back then, I used to be almost found holding that little piece of electronic stuck near my ears – talking. I have loads of pictures (accidentaly taken) which un-knowingly has that typical \”busy talking\” pose. I had subscribed to the cell service that gave me maximum free airtime minutes than competitors and I was still falling short. At the end of every month, I had to drag myself to control to not go beyond my financial limits, ofcourse, nights and weekends were always nice to cover up. But it became quite a routine and to be honest, I was annoyed then. Now I can very gladly say that I have been rehabilitated. My phone calls have reduced (and so my bills) ! I hardly use my allocated monthly minutes and unless important, I don\’t use it much in nights and weekends either. A success story ! Believe me its not difficult, if I can do it, you guys can surely do it with ease.

Better not rely on scientific research that denied cancer and tobacco relationship untill the tobacco lobby had pumped well into the system !

Satire: SO-WHAT , if 2006 was bad ?



Saddam, once a King of a regim is no longer alive. People say he is dead, I say he is alive more than ever he lived. Most of them would reticent about the whole issue but who really wants to talk about it anyways? A person lives and dies, who cares? Its better to be impassive about certain things rather than debating the derogated news lines. On a fresher side, death to Saddam probably gave lots of challenged minds a new direction. So-What, if some think its end of terrorism (gimme a break) while few have forgotten Laden (or his terror). I would say thats a good start for 2007.

For India its again a time to celebrate. Well our 4 PSLV\’s just worked out fine ! Thats a manifestation of triumph ! So-What, if our N-deal would not be of our best interest, out scientists are doing good and are motivated anyhow isnt it ?

Iran and N.Korea have declared themselves as Nuclear states (unofficially). Wow ! Thats what I call is balance of powers. One nation can not have all the powers and force other countries to be deprived of it ! So-What, if the nuclear technology was strategically \”foreign\” funded. It was bound to happen and I am glad it happened now. If it were have happened before or after than now, I believe, would still be the same – glad !

Gujarat\’s growth rate is now 10.2% ! Its emerging as India\’s most productive (or vibrant) state. Now thats unfair ! Oh com\’on… no foreign investors or MNC\’s have ever heard of any of the IT cities in Gujarat. So-What, if the small scale industries are growing or So-What, if infra in remote Gujarat getting better (24hrs uninterrupted electricity to 18,065 villages in Gujarat). Narendra Modi should be accused of such humoungus crime against nation and sent to Karnataka instead, well Its only Banglore err.. Bengaluru that should define Indian economy isnt it ? Crapp !

Indian telecom industry has been a great help. 15% of the population (roughly 140m) is now using cell phones. While there are only 8% (roughly 75m) internet users. So-What, if the telecom has created more entrepreneurs and bridged the rural-urban gaps, its only contributing 0.6% (not sure) of GDP ! Thats disgusting ! Shouldnt it be banned from progressing ? So-What, if, the vast majority of Indians will access internet for the first time via cell phones and India will be among the first countries to have such huge cell-net. The point it, India needs more IT and not Telecom, isnt it suppose to be the trend ? Digitally divided INDIA Huh !

Ha ha, Satires are intersting So-What, if some would just take them in wrong sense. Have a mint 2007 !

Reversed Illusion


The world seems too big for the little piece we craved for. Felt good when I found that I was just a \”yellow line\” away from my HOME !

Finally found my house on the so called big world. Indeed, Thomas Friedman wasn\’t drunk when he wrote \”The world is Flat\”.

Your next  hour will be gone here –> http://www.wikimapia.org check it out if your home is listed, if not add it !

And now plz pray for all those millions of innocent Turkeys  slaughtered  mercilessly.

Nearer, my God, to Thee !



Finally my most respected icon of life now rests in peace. His teachings are still valuable and he has now surely turned immortal with his set of knowledge and values�he passed on .

નમો અરિહંતાણં

Nearer, my God, to Thee !

Turkeys want to enjoy Thankgivings too !!


Thanks Giving !

– a time to rest in the long weekend

– a time to celebrate with family and friends and having wonderful dinner

– a time to see places in long weekend

– a time to enjoy the white fresh snow – the nature\’s pure beauty

– a time to prepare shopping lists and buy things at best and cheap deals

Everything sounds so nice and neat, feels like it would be the most beautiful time of the year, everyone is enjoying and everyone is busy ! Parties, Gatherings, Food and Fun……. something that someone would never want to miss.

Seems like everyone is Thankful for all the wonderful celebration. C\’mon  ITS THANKSGIVING !!

But in midst of all this \”clean and clear\” aoura, lil turkeys are being shamelessly killed?  Why do they have to run and resist to save their lives ? Why is their blood being splashing all over the walls of the poultry farms ? Why ??

Ain\’t they beautiful birds ? They have this innocence.., their eyes seem to have a hope for life. Their eyes seems like questioning – \”WHY US ?\”

WATCH THIS VIDEO TURKEY\’S VIDEO (Caution: if you are a turkey, please don\’t dare to watch)



  • Some 46 million turkeys will be eaten on Thanksgiving, another 22 million at Christmas dinners. Overall, 95 percent of U.S. residents reported eating turkey at Thanksgiving, according to a survey by the National Turkey Federation. (source: Science News)
  • The average American consumes 17 pounds of turkey meat per year, resulting in the annual slaughter of 252 million turkeys—more than 65 million of whom are killed during the winter holiday season alone. (source: Compassion Over Killing – COK



Let the Turkeys give Thanks!

Blogs ??

Blogging ?? Not a bad idea ! Lets see what I can start with… Shayries and Gazals would not be a bad idea,  isn’t it ? hmm… okay .. here’z one on  “Zindagi”   ( I seriously have no clue why I selected this one… lolz)!!

And naah….. its definately not my creation…. just a simple copy-paste 🙂 .. Keep enjoying the shayari, later on I wud b back with some good stuff…..


Zindagi toh hai ek aaina, jo khud ka hi aks dikhati hai,
Hum bhag nahi pate uss se,wo peeche peeche aati hai,

Andhre khud se na bane kabhi,humne hi usko pala hai,
Jeewan ne toh ujiyale mein aakar hame sambhala hai,

Kab tak hum yu hi bhagenge, inn jhoote sapno ke peeche,
Aise hi raha toh phir ek din dharti hi na hogi paon ke neeche,

Ab tham bhi ja tu aye insaa, aage ghanghore andhera hai,
Jiss pal se bhi tu sambhal jaye khud, uss pal se hi toh savera hai,
