Just wondering !!

Aren't bloggers who post quotes from books violating copyright laws? Well that's really bad. I think there should be some sections of books that should be free of these copyright laws. So that they can be posted by reviewers giving the to-be-readers a sneak peak into what they might expect from the book.

Pune has a lot of bicycles. Shridhar was telling us about how there were much more of them ealier.

I didn't realize there are still many cycles untill I saw a board on one of the major roads here, it said 'faqt saicle raasta' or something of that nature. There were actually lot of people with their bicycles. Two lanes on each side. I am planning to buy one soon.

That's the movie that we saw last weekend, thanks to a friend's bad reviews we had skipped this one so far. In fact many people told me that its not good.. well our views certainly don't match. I liked the movie. Infact the movie sparked a discussion which consumed whole night. (I was sleeping, it was bansi and gaind putting their brains to work).

On another note I just found a hidden cost with banks, that people talk so much about. Citybank is already notorious for various hidden costs and mistakenly charged entries in their bills. This time it is ICICI bank. They have charged me Rs. 50 for every cash transaction that I made (cash deposits). Well I managed to make a lot of them this month. I was not informed about it on my ealier deposit activities.. Pandi !! where are you? do you have a solid case now to make money out of suing someone?

Have been watching some heavy movies recently.. Next weekend it has to be a Govinda style movie :) Last two movies that I saw were Black and The Aviator. Both movies are good. I specially got interested in the Howard Hughes guy.. He was cool :-)) Did some googling and found some interesting stuff about him. When I was watching the movie I remembered this post from Dhar, talk about perfectionists !!

I have finished reading another book I moved your cheese, it's a general timepass book that mocks all the self-help books including itself. Good funda. Sometimes the author's style resembled Scott Adams's writing style. Worth reading one time. Next in line is The Road Ahead by Bill Gates, I don't read much non-fiction/management/self-help books but that's what I have left unread on my bookshelf. I have been to four crossroads (the book shop) in Pune but none of them have the Dirk Gently book. Maybe I should just return back to buying from Flora Fountain...

Lately I have been thinking about doing an MBA or something of that sort :).. Nothing concrete yet, maybe after 2-3 years I might actually do something like that. How is the part time management program/course offered by Symbiosis in Pune?

After a long time I spent more than a week without computer screen :-)

I took a vacation recently, spent 9 days in Jaipur. For the first time in last 2 years I was able to go to Jaipur and stay at home :D.. Went to Amber Fort with Dinesh, roamed around the place and hiked to Jaigarh Fort after that. We had been to both the places earlier some 6-7 years ago and managed to locate some places we remembered from last visit.

Dinesh also took me around to show his small garden. He has managed to grow many types of plants and is taking good care of the garden. He did not know names of all the plants that he has but he knew how they would looked like when they grow. We also managed a small trip to Nehru Balodyan. We used to go to this garden every morning during summer vacations..

Vivek has written a BIG blog and I don't know when I will read that blog entry. :-)

Sky neon lights again

It must have been some talking about these guys when I wrote about Sky Advertisements

It seems that they have actually created Artificial Neon Sky Show

Though they have not used satelights but done something to ionosphere the idea is surely good.

Thanks /.
