A Blackberry Addict Discovers Grassroots Enterprise in India

A friend of mine sent this real story to me today morning. The story entails one of the many ground realities about how certain things work in India. People have talent, and capabilities. They just need more awareness and a chance to give more to the world and create better lives for themselves. Here, read on:



A greater ‘hole in the wall’ you cannot imagine.  A small fading sign on  the top saying “Cellphoon reapars” barely visible through the street  vendors crowding the Juhu Market in Mumbai. On my way to buy a new  Blackberry, my innate sense of adventure (foolishness) made me stop my car  and investigate. A shop not more than 6 feet by 6 feet. Grimy and uncleaned.
‘Can you fix a Blackberry ?”
‘ Of course , show me”
” How old are you”
‘Sixteen’
Bulls**t. He was no more than 10. Not handing my precious blackberry to a  10 year old in unwashed and torn T shirt and pyjamas! At least if I buy a new one, they would extract the data for me. Something I have been meaning  to do for a year now.

Scientists have finally decoded the secret behind Mona Lisa's Smile!!

Goodness! I can't believe they actually were working on it. I thought deciphering old paintings was the job of archeologists. Isn't it? But, I guess Dr. Y.L.R Moorthi was right, you never know who could be your competitor next. Here our scientists are now giving some tough competition to the archeologists. They have finally discovered the secret behind Mona Lisa's enigmatic smile. 
As per reported by IANS:
London: The famous smile of Mona Lisa, the magnum opus of Leonardo da Vinci, is no more a secret as scientists have decoded the technique how the Renaisance-era painter created a special effect to show the enigmatic expression. According to the experts, the artist managed to achieve his trademark smoky effect, known as sfumato, on the painting by applying up to 40 layers of extremely thin glaze thought to have been smeared on with his fingers. The glaze, mixed with subtly different pigments, creates the slight blurring and shadows around the mouth that give Mona Lisa…

My First Experience with the Thai Foot Reflexology

It’s been ages, since I had been itching to try something on the lines of "pampering yourself”. Now, with amazing rejuvenating therapy centers “Ayush therapy center” and the new spa "Body and Soul", near my home at Koramangala (Bangalore - INDIA), I was bound to be tempted to have lay my hands on some of these experiences. Moreover, I never got indulged in any of the relaxing and rejuvenating services, except for my usual chore of meditation. I wanted to try something new (even though it meant spending some thousand bucks!).Read more here >>>

"Who is your Competitor tomorrow!!!??? - An interesting article By Y. L. R. MOORTHI, Prof IIM Bangalore"


Who sells the largest number of cameras in India? Your guess is likely to be Sony, Canon or Nikon. Answer is none of the above. The winner is Nokia whose main line of business in India is not cameras but cell phones. Reason being cameras bundled with cellphones are outselling stand alone cameras. Now, what prevents the cellphone from replacing the camera outright? Nothing at all. One can only hope the Sonys and Canons are taking note. Try this. Who is the biggest in music business in India? You think it is HMV Sa-Re-Ga-Ma? Sorry. The answer is Airtel. By selling caller tunes (that play for 30 seconds) Airtel makes more than what music companies make by selling music albums (that run for hours).
Incidentally Airtel is not in music business. It is the mobile service provider with the largest subscriber base in India. That sort of competitor is difficult to detect, even more diff…

Google addsence or adsence or 'adsense'?

Well yes! the correct answer is ofcourse 'adsense'. The search word for most of people out there, is basically "Google Adsense". Yet, I was doing this keyword research and for sake of fun typed this word "addsense". I was shocked to see the results, though scanty in search, but still it was there. There were still people out there searching for "addsence", instead of "adsense". And, the average CPC was also much more than usual average CPC. I don't know who are willing to pay for the wrong spelling of "addsence". In my view, there might be some newbie and amateur advertising agencies coming up in the market who want them to be called addsense. In fact, if we see it all this way, it really adds some sense to this weird addsense spelling. 


People who don't know much about adsense, may make spelling mistakes like placing "adsence" or "addsence" in their search. With "Google adsense" being such …

August 15 - Happy Independence Day to you India

India is celebrating its 63rd independence this August 15, 2010. I wish all my fellow Indians who live here and abroad - a very very happy independence day. Since the moment of our first independence, we all have been living and hoping for India to grow and prosper. It is indeed doing that in many spheres of life. There are still certain issues to be resolved, and on this independence day I pray for the good of all.


I know many people who I met, taking independence day quite sarcastically. When you wish them, they make a smug face and instead of wishing you back, they ask you - "Are we really independent? What about the poverty and corruption? Why am I not getting the job? We were better under the Britishers - at least we could get some job there. And all blah blah blah..."



Obviously, I can not contradict them because of my own limitations. Yet, I wonder - had we been still under Britishers in the same situation - would these people be able to speak  this way and abuse the con…

The List of Most Expensive Jewelry on Amazon

I had been browsing through web in order to find something interesting. Although jewelry is considered to be the most passionate possession and charm for any female, I somehow contradict this in my thinking. May be, I get hurt more number of times than anyone else, whenever I am in any jewelry (which includes getting so many scratches from my diamond ring).



Well, let us get down to this list of most expensive jewelery (currently on sale) as of August, 2010. Feel free to check them out, watch what goes inside them to make them so expensive, and you can even add them to your wishlist, for the time when you get some Aladin's genie or hidden treasure to spend your fortune on. I wonder if anyone reading this list would like to buy these jewels now. You can of course bookmark it for the good and happy times of your life ;-).

Feeling of Self worth

Sometimes it becomes so difficult to prove something to your own self, especially when you get bombarded with negative statements about you from everywhere, and not a single statement of appreciation from anywhere. According to human psychology, negative statements about their worth, no matter how much true or false those statements might be, somehow have a tendency to effect a person’s normal behavior, in some way or the other. And, if such statements come from a source, which is close to the person’s heart, they leave an impact of quite a huge magnitude.
Why does it happen that we often tend to see ourselves from the eyes of others? Everyone wants to look good and attractive, but how can you define beauty and attractiveness? I’ve always felt it to be dependent on a person’s perspective of seeing things. One that is beautiful to me, may not be beautiful to someone else. But, seldom do we realize this. We tend to force our opinion on others, especially when we think that those ‘others…
