Music - finally...

Finally I can listen to music while work...
Its due to my new phone....the Sony Ericsson walkman phone...and nothing beats the sound quality of the radio on this phone....

Im also happy to use the SE interface again, I hated the motorola one. Never using any other brand again, until I actually earn enough to buy the O2 XDA.

So im finally cut off from the outside world even in a place full of noise.....and listening to Alvida at full volume.....now I can work :)))

How I got the new phone:
I lost the Motorola one

Inventory of stuff I lost over the last month:
1. The earphones of the motorola phone(Goa)
2.A fossil wrist watch(Goa) - incidently this is the third wrist watch ive lost in 3 years
3.The motorola phone itself(Bombay) - this is the 2nd phone Ive lost in 6 months
4. The really cute beads necklace i got from Goa(Bombay)

Im getting worse by the day apparently :(((

Proud to be an Indian...

We can endlessly worry and create riots about :

1. Big B, AB and Ash...in that order

2. Our female stars. No one can can give them a peck and get away with it

3. our glamorous IT industry

4. Who gets what OBC status and reservation benefits(Its a small point to be ignored that it reinforces the Casteism that the government is so valiantly trying to eliminate)

5. Rakhi Sawant's scandals

6. Who will be the next Indian Idol

7. Racial comments against a certain Ms. Shetty

8. Celebrating Jayanti's by loud music

9. Iron statues that need to be protected against desecration, though they r normally protected by taking other people's lives...but lives are a dime a dozen, statues are more expensive.

10. Cricket and BCCI selection, Sania Mirza

We dont care a damn about

1. All the beautiful farms and heritage sites that are razed down to build residential monstroties

2. Global Warming

3. Our golden beaches and mysterious forests and hills. After all what more harm can one more piece of a coke can do? (who cares about forests??Statues-- now those are real important)

4. Lack of funding for any kind of research beneficial to mankind. The same principle of lives being a dime a dozen.

5. Infrastructure and proper roads, after all if bullock carts could manage dirt trails, so can we

6. Corruption

7. Racial comments and sexist comments in work places, after all we are not stars...we are mature enough to handle them

8. Politicians and stars with felony charges

9. Security of the common man in public places and transport, since the police have more important things to do, like provide Z security for corrupt politicians and film stars(who can afford their own security, but still like freebies). bomb blasts in trains are common, whats with the loss of a few dozen lives here and there.

11. Acrobatics, swimming and other obscure sports, no sponsorship, so we dont bother, we are all fine business minded people.

As I always say,
We are proud to be Indian....

Aamhi Puneri :)

And finally im back to work, and back to blogging.....
I have had a lot of really weird and funny experiences in Pune already(in 2 weeks), and Im still trying to get used to the way people think, talk and behave.
Its a cute little city, where fair minded people fairly mind their business, well, most of the times.
It doesnt have the exciting scent and pulse of money as in bombay, so it is more like a chilled out, student life city.
Inspite of the mindbogglingly big IT parks, people still lounge around, generally doing nothing, never in a hurry, and always ready for a prolonged chit chat about life and things and the beauty of the marathi language.
its not all hunky dory though, because sometimes the lazy environment can be a bit frustrating for bombayites like me, who expect food to be banged on the table the second after it is ordered.
Im also a bit frustrated and angry about dealing with slinky brokers who find every other dump a cause for huge brokerage. I sorely miss having a car, because the public transport is really not upto the amount of people and frequency with which they travel.

In any case,Im currently at peace here...and just soaking in the beauty of the perfect clash between the next gen and the old world. Will let y'all know when i stop being amused by it :D
