Things They Don’t Teach You at School

  • They don’t teach you how to love somebody. 
  • They don’t teach you how to be famous. 
  • They don’t teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. 
  • They don’t teach you how to walk away from someone you don’t love any longer. 
  • They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind. 
  • They don’t teach you what to say to someone who’s dying. 

How guys select the girl they want to marry

A man is dating three women and wants to decide which to marry.

He decides to give them a test. He gives each woman a present of $5,000 and watches to see what they do with the money.

The first does a total makeover.
She goes to a fancy beauty salon, gets her hair done, purchases new make-up and buys several new outfits, and dresses up very nicely for the man.

She tells him that she has done this to be more attractive for him because she loves him so much.

The man is impressed.

The second goes shopping to buy the man gifts.
She gets him a new set of STRONG golf clubs, some new gizmos for his computer, and some expensive clothes.As she presents these gifts, she tells him that she has spent all the money on him because she loves him so much.

Again, the man is impressed.

The third invests the money in the stock market.
She earns several times the $5,000. She gives him back his $5000 and reinvests the remainder in a joint account. She tells him that she wants to save for their future because she loves him so much.

Obviously, the man was impressed.

The man thought for a long time about what each woman had done with the money.

Guess which lady he chose to marry?

Think like a man . . .

NDTV Turns 20 Today

logo_newI can distinctly recall growing up watching The World This Week, which was a weekly affair. Only because of this news programme that we were allowed to watch TV on Friday nights. Prannoy Roy looking dashing with his trademark beard surely was very impressive. In those old Doordarshan days, the news bulletin was surely a great relief. As time passed NDTV has expanded and is now a network. As NDTV(New Delhi Television) turned 20 today and they have put up a small capsule on their site here which recounts their journey. Watch out for Prannoy Roy who talks passionately about their humble beginning and especially the part where he talks about his wife, Radhika Roy, the real brain behind the channel.

NDTV scores a cut above the rest with their Clarity, audio, video coverage and delivery. The whole package is very pleasingly acceptable. This is one team which has not let me down in so many years!

Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi – First Look

Here is the first released picture of – the much anticipated movie from Yash Raj Banner, directed by Aditya Chopra. First look at the first poster of Rab ne Bana Di Jodi and it makes you think hey wahtthe movie can be all about. SRK in a so very diffrent look.The tag line of the movie goes “There is an Extra Ordinary Love Story in every Jodi” sets you thinking what is extraordinary about this ordinary Jodi!

Never expected such a teaser! When you think of Yash raj films its mostly about the hero romancing with his lady in the snowy mountains of Switzerland. But quite contrarily, here you see Shahrukh wearing a faded shirt, with a bad pair of trousers and completely awful shoes… probably his worst on-screen look till date. But I hope that he’s got another dashing look in the movie which I am waiting very eagerly to see. His love interest is being played by newcomer Anushka Sharma.

“Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi” hits theatres on 12th December 2008.

Google Chrome – Mini Review

 

Google Chrome Logo

Tried the new web browser by Google – Chrome. Just as all Google products..its neat and nifty. Plenty of screen space. Title bar space has been used for tabs and no status bar. The entire look is so clean and fresh. You will love it. Ever since I downloaded I have been using it. 

 

Bookmarking made so much easier, just click the star icon at the left edge of the address bar and there you go.. it’s done. 

Want to open a tab in a new window?? Just drag the tab out of the browser to open it in new window. Drag a window into the tab of another chrome window and its integrated into that window as a tab.. you have to experience it.

The address bar, which Google calls the “omnibox” doubles as a search box. As youtype in, it automatically suggests realted queries and websites, that you might be looking for.

Incognito mode lets you browse through sites which wont be stored in your browsing history. One can browse normally and in incognito mode at the same time in separate windows.

However, having used FireFox, am missing on the various addons. Hoping that Google Chrome will be coming out with a whole lot of addons too.

One thing I expected was Google Toolbar integrated into Chrome by default. It’s missing and there isn’t any available for Chrome.  😦

One drawback I have experienced is that if at times one of your tabs is hung, you cannot navigate to other tabs. This in particular happens when you are playing a video.

Love Marriage vs Arranged Marriage

Love Marriage: Resembles procedural programming language. We have some set functions like flirting, going to movies together, making long conversations on phone and then try to fit all functions to the candidate we like.

Arranged Marriage: Similar to object oriented programming approach. We first fix the candidate and then try to implement functions on her. The main object is fixed and various functions are added to supplement the main program. The functions can be added or deleted.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Love Marriage: It is a throwaway type of prototype as client requirements rises with time thus it is a dynamic system and difficult to maintain.

Arranged Marriage: Requirements are well defined so use of waterfall model is possible.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Love Marriage: Family system hangs because hardware called parents are not responding.

Arranged Marriage: Compatible with hardware Parents.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Love Marriage: You are the project leader so u are responsible for implementation and execution of PROJECT- married life.

Arranged Marriage: You are a team member under project leader parents so they are responsible for successful execution of project Married life.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Love Marriage: Client expectations include exciting feature as spouse cooking food, washing clothes etc.

Arranged Marriage: All these features are covered in the SRS as required features.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Love Marriage: Acceptance test possible you can try before you Buy.

Arranged Marriage: Product is sold on an as is where is basis, Product once sold will not be taken back!
