I Came I Ran I Conquered

I’ve been there at the Hyderabad 10k run. This is my first time and loved it.And the best part of it is that I completed the whole 10K, though it took me 1 hour 50 mins I’m happy about completing it. The event started off with some entertainment at the People’s plaza and with Victory Venkatesh unveiling the logo and flagging off the run.Loads of people participated and finished the run including some handicapped people, small children.And there were lots of corporate groups like Google,Microsoft, Infosys etc too.There were bands performing all through out the course which made the whole event much more fun.

Rehnam concert in hyderabad


Great news Rajiv Gandhi international airport in Hyderabad is organizing a concert by AR Rehman as part of first anniversary celebrations.This is perhaps the first time first Rehman is performing in Hyderabad .I'm simply excited and desperate to attend a Rehman concert as it has been a dream.So wish to be there as I may leave India as early as next month I don't wanna let this chance go .Now the sad part is I can get a 1000Rs ticket at max and might end up miles away from stage.And letting my dreams run wild I wish someone gives me a 25000Rs pass. Tickets are available from the Hyd airport website and also from bookmyshow.com

Ms in US of A

My parents and me were very clear about my career long since i remember. The plan was that I will do my bachelors in engineering and Ms from US and finally become a software engineer (what ever that means.I failed to decipher what that means even though I'm working in a Software company as Trainee).My life was full of obvious decisions, after passing from school, my stream for inter was pretty clear (MPC what else you need to become an engineer) and as for the bachelors engineering degree(Btech) part I did finish my bachelors in Engg in computer science. Every thing went according to the plan till Engg except that i was supposed to do my Btech from IIT’s but ended up finishing it in Holy Mary Institute of technology and science.Then the next step has to be Ms in Us but then came fear that threatened my beautifully planned career, the fear that i might not return to India after my masters, this fear led to some decisions that did not work - my Gate attempt (must have been a half hatred attempt).But now after retrospection, introspection,circumspection I again decided to go ahead with my original plan. Go ahead for MS in US but along with this I take up a new challenge, the challenge of coming back to India even though not immediately after Ms but definitely after some time from the comfort of USA which held back 90% of Indian who went there.At least this post should work as remainder for me when i think(heavens forbid) of settling down in US.

Voice chat missing in Yahoo messenger India

Today when I tried using my yahoo messenger India to voice chart with a friend I found a surprising fact. The yahoo messenger India does not support voice chat, despite its good glossy look the Indian version of the messenger is missing a vital feature like voice chat which people are very used to ,but the international versions do support the good old voice chart.

  ScreenHunter_01 Sep. 28 01.24                               Yahoo Messenger India

ScreenHunter_03 Sep. 28 01.26                     Yahoo messenger US with the voice chat

 

ScreenHunter_02 Sep. 28 01.25           You will find this on the yahoo messenger India website

Well the solution for this is to get a yahoo messenger US. But before installing it be sure to remove the old messenger using Add and Remove programs from Control Panel and reboot your system.

Curious to know the reason for the absence.

View of Sunrise from Tiger hills- a sunrise point in Darjeeling

The view of sun rising from behind the hills and clouds, shining upon you full and bright when you stand staring into the skies is a great view.The first rays of sun light up the snow filled peak of Kanchenjunga giving it a beautiful silver hue.I had to wakeup 3 am in the morning as the sun rises as early as 4- 4:30 am in Darjeeling and it was worth it and more.

Passing Clouds


This pic was taken in Darjeeling. While traveling you often pass through clouds, I many times miss took them for fog.

Staring into the depth

Staring into the depth of the green and beautiful Green Valley- Shimla

Amazing sentence !

Just stumbled this on the net


“I do not know where family doctors acquired illegibly perplexing handwriting nevertheless, extraordinary pharmaceutical intellectuality counterbalancing indecipherability, transcendentalizes intercommunications incomprehensibleness”.

This is a sentence where the Nth word is N letters long.

e.g. 3rd word is 3 letters long, 8th word is 8 letters long and so on

New Hero Honda Karizma spied

 

new-hero-honda-karizma-full-fairing

 new-karizma-fi

These are the spy pics of new Hero Honda Karizma doing rounds on the internet . While the Bajaj has got their pulsar 200 and 220 and Yamaha their R15, Hero Honda was still struck with their aging Karzima which got its only upgrade in the form of an added R and sticker change. Now it looks like the Hero Honda is up for it with the new full fared Karizma. The new Karizma will be the only other bike in India with full front fairing along with the R15.

Some new features:  

new-karizma-fi

  • New handle bars.
  • Full front faring.
  • Nice faring embedded clear lamp indicators.
  • Hayabusa inspired graphics on faring.
  • Rear disc braking
  • Gas shocks
  • Split grab rails
  • LED tails light

And some questions :

  1. While every body on the internet call the new karizma PGM-Fi (programmable fuel injected) we have to wait and see if it really is fuel injected.
  2. The Power ?.  Did Hero Honda Make any changes in the CC.
  3. Price ?. will HH be able to price the ZMA competitively.
