My thoughts on Susu vs Swamy page


इन विराट उल्लू-के-पठ्ठओं को क्या कभी समझ आएगी? राष्टवाद के नाम पर देश की नाक कटा रहे हैं!

No one can identify the parody and the stupid account based on this Vatican post from the real account.

If the real page was, indeed, deleted, can you blame facebook’s operator and not Swamy for nurturing such delusional/marijuanical विराट विचार?

I am cooking some stir-fry beef marinated in Soya+Fish sauce and lemon juice.

Later, I will take the peelings from the vegetables (that I have collected over the last few days) to the nearby Shiv-Mandir and feed them to the cows.

Am I a good Hindu, Bhaskar Gaur?

Fuck you Google, and Goodbye

Wow! I have got a new Samsung iPhone GT-S7562!

One of my Yahoo friends, Ronit (http://thescurvydawg.wordpress.com/2014/09/21/fuck-you-google-and-goodbye/), has successfully got google out of his life. I am sure that I will succeed, too.

I cannot copy files to my Ubuntu system as it has been abandoned by google! What is new?

meebo, YouTube (the original), Wildfire, Mashable and what not (https://www.google.co.in/search?num=100&newwindow=1&safe=off&client=ubuntu&channel=cs&q=companies+acquired+by+google+and+shut) (Do not hit me with that in which I used google to search that things!)! All Acqu-hired by google and then kicked both in the face and testicles, together-together.

Bloddy hell!

I was introduced to Google back in school, when it was just a search engine. Now it has its fingers and feet in almost every product/service category and is undoubtedly the market leader in most of them.

After Google search, I started using Gmail, then Google Chrome. It was only by chance that I didn’t buy an Android handset (almost bought the T-Mobile G1 once) and I am glad I didn’t. Google is evil. Google is at the moment, what Microsoft was in the 90s. Ruthless and evil.

Google has the right to read through your e-mail, use that information however it pleases and targets ads depending on the text in your e-mail. Also Google has deliberately not supported Windows Phone for years.

Yes, Google is evil

Yes, Google is evil

So a few months ago, I decided to say “fuck you” to Google and start moving away from all Google products. OneDrive replaced…

Modi Bhakts ki Mahimaa!


Modi Bhakts are really some thing. Got this message.

“Finally Japan’s Bullet train has come (for trial) to India.
In the picture the train is at Billimoria station in Gujarat. Naturally people are crowding to see it.
Hats off to our PM Narendra Modi.”

Bullet train drumming on broad gauge??? Actually, Hats off to Modi San! And where is my Gaanjaa Sandwich?

The Road to Hell is paved with Good Intentions!


This is The CLOSEST that a magazine article has come to express my feelings on my asshole friends and relatives. “Chhotu? Toone hamaara computer phhir se kharaab karr diyaa??”

By my calculations, about 96 percent of all computer repairs are done, not by the local computer guy or the Geek Squad, but by The Friend Who is Good With Computers. Often that friend is nothing more than an average computer user who knows how to look up error messages on Google, but it doesn’t matter — once they become known as TFWIGWC, they will get the call every time something goes wrong. And they will fix it, probably for free, because TFWIGWC pities you.

Still, any time a bunch of TFWIGWCs get together and share their computer repair horror stories, you learn that there are certain things their “customers” do that make them want to ram their head through a wall.

InterNatz ke aapko dhhakkan banaane ki trick nambar 7.


Just like this unsubstantiated story, the internet is rife with such videos.

That video, in my post, or at least the appeal, turned out to be fake.

That is why I wondered if this was also a very old/fake video.

And it is!

Last night, my first thought on seeing the video was that these were orphans and saying that share fast so that the parents could reach the hostel sounded like -“Bhaiyo Behno… Sale ke aakhri 2 din. 2000 k@a maal sirf 95.99 mein. Jaldi karein!”

and that was not untrue, either!

Sorry buddy, they, the spammers got the best of you and your insaaniyat!

I hope that we learn this new “Internet ki Choo banane ki Ability” ka lesson!

I don’t want to live in this world anymore!



Today’s kids will have really weird yaadein. Actually, I doubt if they’ll have any, at all. Nearly all ALL the kids I have seen, from Kashmir to Kanyakumari (literally) have spent the entire evenings watching Doremon. It is so sad and scary!

We used to conduct Auditions for a movie in a basketball court. It adjoined a park where all the rides were rusted and broken. The watchman told me, the last kids to play in that park left ~10 years ago, about the same tine when Cartoon Network was launched in India. It is so Bloddy sad and depressing, seeing guilty time-deprived parents take the support of Chinese Toys and giving unrestrained access to their kids to these TV shows.

I don’t want to live in this world anymore!

Hunter “Sex” Yelton


How viperous this appropriately named, menacingly evil, sexual harasser is! “Hunter”. He started by kissing his classmate’s hand. Poor girl shall be traumatized for the rest of her life. But, rejoice. She is safe now. Hunter Yelton has been expelled from school and today and in the remaining future, till InterNatz lives, the entire world and its schools shall know about this Hunter paedophile whose photo is all over the internet and has “sex-offender” written over his school record. By the time he starts getting erections, in another 6-8 years, methinks, he would have been completely disciplined and admitted to the Gynophobiaized innards of maledom. To make a better start, get this man chemically/surgically castrated ASAP. Whether or not it makes him the next Ted Bundy, we don’t have to worry. He is a man, after all and can take care of all his emotions. Long live femiNazism.

ClearTrip Customer support (NOT!)


After a long time, I had to visit online resources for a ticket booking and I was reminded of my “Kiruba incident” with ClearTrip. The sense of closure is still deluding me. It always does. Even after 20 years.

Neither My Dear Niraj, the CMO of ClearTrip nor did anyone else bother to respond to the following email.

He, The Hallowed CMO, along with that customer support bloddy-agent, Shringarpure, could have pretty easily asked me, “dear Mr. sharma, Go fondle urslf.” (The English could have been theirs, going by the professional levels of ClearTrip.com)

But they both chose to not respond. Or escalate. I guess I won that round. Ex-parte! Right?

Here is the entire bull, in public domain.

Why so late? Guess I am pretty vella today, till the departure of the train, and it is going to be fun digging all the old emails and formatting them for the blog.

Prohibition on Carrying fire arm in Delhi Metro (DMRC)

“Times of India” is the most Tatti newspaper.


“A number of our loyal readers have criticized us for our front page headline on the verdict of the Allahabad High Court. (2 Parts To Hindus,1 Part To Muslims) … The headline in question was clinically accurate….” Here is  the entire maan mera ehsaan disclaimer. Tech Help.

Just to begin with I would like to quote a Haryanvi idiom, “Aandhe ne aandhaa nahi kaha karte!” You do not call a blind man blind. I would like to vociferously juxtapose it to, “Gay aadmi ko gaandoo nahi kehte!” Please note that both the idioms are as (or even more) “clinically accurate” as the headline observations by Times of India on 1st October, 2010. All they are capable of doing is inflame the hurt sentiments of the Andha / the Gandoo or someone else, too sheltered from everyday Hindi. (N.B. Asshole is a fine word, though. Even on the dinner table. So is “Oh Shit, Mummy! Aaj phir Arvi banayi hai! What the Fuck!”).

Women vs Men! Viva!

Thus asketh Nitin Soni :- Why do women think that men are dogs and can think of nothing else but sex and that every erection without any action is like wasted Garden of Eden? Why do women also think that men do everything because they want to score with the woman in bed? Can we be JUDGED only by the size of our balls? …My anguish is at generalized thoughts as they continue to haunt and hound the MOST honest and sterilized of our breed. Worst is, we cannot even defend.

Memory / Memories / Delete / Un-delete / Forget / Forgive…


My Father presented me with His Digital Diary, Casio SF-R20 in 1993. He took a backup of it in his newer model and gave the thing to me with all its paraphernalia, the two memory cards and the data cable et al.

I was pretty sure that He shall be with us for ever and hence pressed the Master Reset button that was under the battery panel.

It took me some years and by 2003, it had about 1300 names and addresses and a lot many birthdays and other events.

His data is with me in one of the memory cards that I keep in my briefcase.

However, this  pen that I got form Ahmadabad is a total paradox!

The dear designers at Zhenjue (there is no website) have actually worked on the design to make it look less expensive than it is.

This one looks like a gel pen, replete with the ink-tank markings that are found on most of the pens of this category.

New Year HAppy?


If

If you can keep your head when all about you 
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you; 
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, 
But make allowance for their doubting too; 
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, 
Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies, 
Or, being hated, don’t give way to hating, 
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream – and not make dreams your master; 
If you can think – and not make thoughts your aim; 
If you can meet with triumph and disaster 
And treat those two imposters just the same; 
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken 
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, 
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken, 
And stoop and build ‘em up with wornout tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings 
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss, 
And lose, and start again at your beginnings 
And never breath a word about your loss; 
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew 
To serve your turn long after they are gone, 
And so hold on when there is nothing in you 
Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on”;

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, 
Or walk with kings – nor lose the common touch; 
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you; 
If all men count with you, but none too much; 
If you can fill the unforgiving minute 
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run – 
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it, 
And – which is more – you’ll be a Man my son!

And the answer shall blow in the wind.

Still Blank…


There is quite a lot that has happened over these few months and might even be written over here and shared.

Especially about my coming to Aapdo Aamdabad (Our Ahmedabad) and the various experiences.

However, whenever I sit with this page in front of me, I get BLANK.

Today, again the same happened. For how long, I do not know. :-(

***********************************************

Lets try to fill in the Blanks..

After shifting to Aapdo Aamdabad  I am working day shifts after working night shifts for sooo long  in Good Gaanva  and may be this is one big reason that I am drawing BLANK.

I want to write about so many things but then something new happens and I am not sure which  one should I be writing about.  I mean I end up composing sentences and then I delete them thinking “who cares”. But then I sit down again next time thinking “Well! some do and at least I will get someone thoughts on the happening in my life!”

Do I compare the Dilliwallahs and the Dil_lee(but never dee)_walis with “I a m not sure anything about them” Aamdabad wallahs and walis OR do  I write about my recent  “SPIRIT less”  life or  do I write about the Mumbai attacks that everybody is talking about or may be how the Dilliwallahs and Aamdabaad waallahs differ in their reaction to Mumbai.

15th August. No Dreaded dream this time that I care to remember…


Yester-night I was scared of this on-going LONG weekend… There was nothing that i could think of doing. And I am off drinking here… I had resolved this before coming that I shall drink only in Delhi or in Bombay and that too NOT with a particular set of friends. Never here…. And I am keeping it good… There is always some lying in my house. My LandLord hides it there and keeps on offering me some, all the time… But not ME!!! But the time pass factor that daroo afforded is gone… Anyway, I finished the book that I’d started for the 4th time, by about 4:30 AM and then went to sleep.
I was woken up at 9 by two kids inviting me, like all other 160 house-holders in our society, to the inauguration of their “Papa’s new Mobile phone shop.” They were a Cute sight… Though I was Oh-so-sleepy, I could not help smile at the 5-6 year old child’s invitation.
