16/04/2015:-( hopeless app without the checkin feature! Totally bullshit application update. Cannot even see my old tips.
Not uninstalling for nostalgia sake. Removing from home screen. चुत्तड़ app!
They killed it!
It was on my home screens for the last 6 years, ever since I got into smart phones! Sometimes mine, most of the times loaned! Managed to install it in so many friend’s mobile phones and got them to use it. The feeling one got after using this application was pretty heart-warming. (If that is the right word!)
Bloddy wankers’ management! “this was not our vision” Screw your butt-holed vision! This was my MOST USED app and is now being relegated to the last page of the extra folder.
Let Mr. Crowley follow his/His/its/their vision, I will save my time on this application. This is the last time that I bother with it.
That I am writing this review/ rant at 531AM should indicate how seriously passionate I WAS about foursquare!
January, 2015:- The application is great but only makes one feel like a cripple IF one has been a pre-Swarm user.
I, for the love of Gol-Gappe, cannot understand the logic behind taking away the Check-In feature!
“They” tried to fix something that ain’t broke and destroyed the user experience!
I used it only for decimating information about little known GREAT-food dispensers.
Now, I cannot add a new place with the same enthusiasm as the CheckIn is gone!
Still, as a loyal user, I do my bit but miss the CheckIn sorely!y
This is less of a review and more of a rant against the removal of CheckIn but, as we Indians say, “What to do only!”
nb 14th March 2015. Zomato has brought in Check-In! Foursquare??? Please do not force me to abandon you!!!
CHECK IN MISSING IN THIS UPDATE!

तीसरी बार आज हुआ। चतुराई दिखाते हुए, आते ही चाय बोल दी। कप के हाथ मे आते ही बस भी आ गई!

The Vice-President recently spoke out on campus sexual assault, reminding us that “No means No.” And he’s right; if a woman says no, and a man doesn’t respect that, it’s rape.
But I’ve represented a number of male students accused of sexual assault on campus, and I haven’t yet seen a case of the kind Joe Biden is talking about.
The cases that are prosecuted by schools tend to be much more ambiguous. And a lot of that has to do with how schools view alcohol and consent.
Of course, if someone has sex with an unconscious woman, that’s sexual assault. And if a woman is drunk and another person forces sex on her because she’s vulnerable because she’s drunk, that’s also rape.
But many schools take…

Here are the No.s of the PWD Minister
Mr. MK Muneer (R) 314601, 317651
Mr Kunha Hamed PS 335366. 326771
I could not get his numbers. I shall call him on Monday… The problem is that I am very busy during the day as out of the regular
crowd of 5 Assistant Managers, we 2 are left… So during the day I am running around these beautiful mountains… by the time I get
back, the offices have closed… But on this Monday, there is a new assistant coming and I shall be in his house to welcome him.
From his house I shall call the PWD minister. The Internet here is also acting up. I shall buy BSNL account next week. This Satyam
account is gifted by a friend who closed his cyber cafe… so till November, I have free Internet… Unlimited. This laalach is
stopping me from going in for a new account. But for emergencies, like this mail which has been lying in my outbox for the last 4
days, I shall buy one 25 hour one.
On Monday I shall post you the requisite certificate/ whatever from the company saying that it won’t be too bad if I have a firearm
with me while bringing cash from the bank. You shall get it be Wednesday. And also, tell me if you need an affidavit from me. And if
you do, then what shall I write in it. Sahil shall be coming to you within 10-15 days and he can handle the double chambering
problem of Beretta. What is the status of the carbine???
That Parminder called and thanked for your help that shall be coming forth. I assured him that everything shall be fine… Let us
Here is the mail in text format…
1 I shall let you know of the rubberized roads in a day or two. There are these Onam holidays going on here and the secretariat is
closed. The PS of the Surface Transport Minister shall help me. I shall ask if he has email and then get you two together if
2 I am unable to connect to the internet for long enough time to search for an appropriate digital diary. I shall ask my
Kottayam-native assistant to look around a few shops and even ask for a Casio distributor/showroom and get me details of the
available models. He is an intelligent man and I am sure that he will understand what I want and get me the same. Till then there is
not much that can be done in this respect.
3 Today I had a half day due to Onam and the WHOLE day I spent reading the Saad Ali book and ARRL radio handbook. And now I am
having BIG TIME acidity!!! Hi. Is there a way to get that rig from that BAS$%^& VU2LMP??? The rig I have is having the same problem
or blown up display and there is nothing that can be done here. So if you mobilize VU2MY or someone else and get these things done,
then it shall be fun and right now MY shall be too happy to oblige. If you are in good terms with MY, then even I shall write him a
sentimental Uncle-letter. That LMP does not respond. So many letters, so many years.
a. This place and the job are really conducive for the hobby. There is a lot of spare time and I am living at a top of a hill. There
are a lot of trees around but I don’t think that shall matter too much as I shall be using an inverted v, and can change the
direction at will. That is the best thing to have.
b. On second thoughts, I can even make a 3 element Yagi or Loop Sky wire or X Beam or something like that as there are 2 factories
with FULL workshops and a lot of scrap at my disposal. HeHeHe. ;-)
c. Am also ready for I Grade license. Morse is good and theory I can read and cram up. But then I DID complete 40 contacts in one
year so I automatically am eligible for the Upgrade. I have lost my license but do have the number.
4 The Beretta Letter, I shall let you know tomorrow. I shall ask the GM to tell me whether or not I shall get the letter and if not
then we can manage without the bloody letter, I am sure.
5 The Beretta needs a new grip. I searched the internet but could not find one. That sardar in Jagadhary promised to make one. But I
don’t trust him, somehow. Look what he did to the Marlin. Did you get the sighting pin cover back? I don’t think so as I am SO SURE
he lost it. So you can try some good guy in Chandigarh and get it serviced as well. The double shot thing was there when I fired it
the last time. One shot shall go, that shell will come out, taking an unspent bullet with it while chambering a fresh round. That
doesn’t seem like a serious problem. Even Rakesh mentioned this one.
6 There is this problem in the passport form that they want the current address so I think I shall not take any stoopid chance and
fill it up with all correct knowledge. If I mention the present address as Dy CM’s, then it might become a BIG issue if caught. So
shall go the honest way. And tomorrow shall go and get the snap snapped and send you a few extra copies as well. But the quality of
passport form and the stickers for the signature tell a lot about the state of the nation! Even Pakistani passports are better, MUCH
better than ours. You Politicians! HiHiHi
7 My friend sent me two Maglites and I have already lost one. :-( But this torch is SOMETHING!!! Right now I have the 3 D size
thing. The small one fell in some jeep when we were going to the club on a RAINY night! Anyway. It had to happen!
8 Rest tomorrow as and when I get the information about that road thing. This might be postponed till Monday as they might have an
9 Write soon. In the same vein.

It was love at first sight! I met him in 1979 and we became best of friends.
In 1981, he changed the school and I raised my tantrums to be shifted. I was, as usual!
1982 end, I was admitted in The Daly College, whined about the hostel life and returned to Delhi in 1984. 700 kms and 2 years away from my “love at first sight friend!” We were 9.
That is when our friendship started, to use Ashar’s words.
I had a vague idea of his home address and I wrote him a letter and he responded.
Over mails, till 1988, our friendship continued to become deeper. We met briefly in 1988 and by 1991 I had become a मंत्री-पुत्र and joined my parents for the first time in my life.
The perk of leaving my Delhi friends was STD phone! Nearly free. (Monthly limit, Rs. 20,000, not too much)

An अंकिलजी since 1979; an inspiration since 1991; CLL fighter since 1996 a friend since 2001.
Mr. Ataul Ghaffar is being sorely missed!
Every moment reminds of his overwhelming presence with his attention to AND persistent follow-up of the minutest detail!
Bhopal is my The-Mandatory-Stop when crossing equator of India. Sometimes, due to exigencies beyond my control, I had to cross it, half heartedly!
Never ever did I cross Bhopal, in train, without him delivering the most amazing kababs and roti made by Rafia Aunty. Be it bitter winter or pouring rain. He would be there on his trusty हमारा बजाज चेतक। People would peer out of their sheets to sniff out the source of the nearly-magical aroma! Sniff and look at my resolutely indifferent (mean) countenance, sigh and go back to sleep!
He would come to pick me up at all odd hours from the railway station. Only once I took a taxi from the airport because it was a surprise visit when I had to escort the couple to Delhi in Bhopal Express. It was one of the worst days of this life that I am not too interested in, lately. The return-train was empty due to terrorism of press and that was the first time I decided to sport a BIG tilak; a BIG symbolic tilak.
This could be a confessional! My Bua, who raised me like her own son, used to complain that it seems that I come to Uncle and visit her whereas it should be the other way round! So, we hit upon a novel idea! I would not brush my teeth and rather luxuriant head of hair, after spending 3-4 days at Ghaffar place and then he would drop me at the railway station at the time of arrival of the train and I would happily be driven to my relatives’ place! Not that I resented going there but this is to just emphasise on my heart’s priority. I hope she forgives me for this sleight!

“Every male is a legitimate target. Every male is a rapist and an abuser of women! There are no exceptions! Even little boys will grow up to one day abuse women in some way or another. They too are legitimate targets.” So said young Anna Feldman in a politically charged “woman-ifesto” released over the internet hours before she grabbed an M-16 military style assault rifle and began her one woman war on patriarchal sexism at her college.
Many Feminists and Human Rights activists agree with Feldman; all males are potential rapists and they justly deserve to die for their collective crimes against women. Unfortunately, Feldman did not limit her killing to males. Several women were seriously injured and several died during her attack at Washington Progressive Community College.
Because Anna chose not to limit her attacks to men only, her actions remain controversial among feminists and progressives…

The reality: bogus statistics, feminist victimology, and university-approved sex toys
It’s a lonely job, working the phones at a college rape crisis center. Day after day, you wait for the casualties to show up from the alleged campus rape epidemic—but no one calls. Could this mean that the crisis is overblown? No: it means, according to the campus sexual-assault industry, that the abuse of coeds is worse than anyone had ever imagined. It means that consultants and counselors need more funding to persuade student rape victims to break the silence of their suffering.

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.

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.

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.
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!

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!

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.

“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.

A Woman’s Work is Never Done
Early in the morning she rises
The woman’s work is never done
And it’s not because she doesn’t try
She’s fighting a battle with no one on her side
She rises in the morning And she works ’til way past dusk
The woman better slow down Or she’s gonna come down hard
Early in the morning she rises
The woman’s work is never done

Women, of our times, are liberated. Working side by side with men and machines. At times, 24×7 shifts, as in call centers and other BPOs.

Methinks, all companies try to make their product look better and costlier/expensive-er/un-cheaper than it actually is.
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.
Here it is, with the cap closed. However, once we open it, what do we see?

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.

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.
