Blog of bloggers

Here’s a quick-list of all the good blogs that I have seen and would recommend
MT’s blog – am not sure what this blog is about, but it’s my boss’s blog so has to be one of the top recommendations. From the last post that I saw on this blog, it has info about new waves being made in the online world of which we are bound to become a part of, with or without our consent. Yo Boss, keep blogging, I’m sure there are several things that can be blogged about and I’m sure most of us would be interested in that.

Badsra’s Blog – now this is the place for ideas and as it says, it has musings about everything. One of the finer blogs that you would find a link to at my blogspot, it has information about things which are trend-setting and better ideas that are catching up.Budds, neat work man (not literally) and a fine content generation/aggregation that u have done…..keep blogging, u have no idea how many people u inspire to blog, me41.

Atul’s Blog – and this my friend, is a blog bymy friend atul and I suppose this blog’s all about blogging and things are shaping up fine it seems. He is into making a story and I recommend this as I play a role in the story that’s just come up. So atul, let this not be yet another shattered dream (mine that is ;) ).

Raheja’s blog – this guy ‘sudhanshu raheja’ has recently started his own online portal, primarily for MBA aspirants – What else can I say besides saluting and wishing him all the very best for the initiative taken. By the way the blog’s all about education, start-ups, new technologies and a very very informative place to visit. If I’d not done my MBA already, I think mbakarma would be the place that I’d be found in (one way to say, given a chance, i’d study)

Ankit’s Blog – Just like him, I’m not sure what this blog’s about but there is a contentment in knowing that there are people like me. Thanks Ankit (I’m sure I’ve inspired u enough to start serious blogging man)

Hey some links that I have given above are without the permission of the owners of the blogs (actually all of them, but I think I own them…hehe) and there are many that come to my mind right now but I just don’t want to clutter this place (clutter??? Hey, there’s hardly any content here dude!)
Till the time I don’t delete this post….keep visiting!

music discovery

everybody should give this one shot at least. although the complete package delivered by musicovery is not all that useful, but then the whole interface and concept is good and i’m sure with time, better things would come up taking a learning from sites and concepts like these..
so go ahead, try this site

Blogging fever

so everybody i know is blogging these days and some of them are boasting about blogging. I’m just wondering , can i earn out of this crap that i am writing…everybody says the first step is the hardest, so that means that my first blog was the hardest?? now if u happen to have the misfortune of visiting this, i must tell ye, you are one luck person…think about it..
meanwhile you can always check out friendly blogs of my friends
here’s atul’s blog

and then there is the blogger friend of mine badsra and this is one good blog.
and this is what primarily inspired me to start bloggin, i didn’t make it is a different thing.

so till we meet again……so long..

memory remains – Raka

I just thought i’ll mention a few weird incidents that happened with some of us…

Place: AIMT, greater noida,
Time: sometime in the night
The thing: so we were drinking, raising a toast to our beloved friend – Sanjeev Chand’s birthday.
Although there were restrictions on alcohol consumption inside the college premises, our enthusiasm needed a restriction of greater force and not just these letters on the joining instructions, and besides who is supposed to follow such instructions when the D himself had been spotted in inebriated state slinging crap, which most of us, although had been through crap of levels unimaginable, did not expect from a person in the position that he was in and we didn’t expect him to be in the position that he was in is a different matter altogether.
If I remember that incident correctly, included in the party were
• Atul
• Kuber
• Ritesh
• Madhur
• Me
And surprisingly Sanjeev wasn’t there…..
Anyway continuing with the “Raka incident “, so all of us were drrrrunkkk……and there were several other parallel parties going on in the hostel, meaning a lotta chaos in the hostel, enough to wake the sleeping dogs up.
Yeah, we – atul, madhur, ritesh, kuber and me are in atul’s room and raka walks in, in his usual slow pace and says in the most casual manner “ abe warden aa raha hai, daaru vagerah zara chupa lo”….i still can’t believe it, raka wasn’t drinking that day.
I still remember we had those videos, which have been lost in this digital world, with kuber and me singing our spirited version of “riders on the storm” and of course there were several thought-provoking discussions going on with topics varying from philosophy of life to whether a person should join the armed forces or not.

Needless to say, by the time we realized raka was not joking, the warden was there along with the Registrar – Lt. Col. Riyaz Khan, and it was a photographic moment – atul and I were planning to throw the empty bottles from the balcony and see who could throw it farther, so when the warden came in he sees atul with this bottle of old monk and all the other drunkards are saying whatever they want to whoever they want, knowing all the while that nobody gives a damn but still saying it to increase the intensity of the chaos and when we had the pleasure of extracting the pleasure from S C Pathak , the warden himself who wanted more…ok the last thing in the para isn’t true…nobody liked talking to him or even getting in a discussion of any sort in which he was a part.
All of us were caught and it was a mass breath-test that took place in the hostel that night with Riyaz sir’s sense of smell benchmarking the students as either drunk or heavily drunk….i’m not even considering the ones who did not drink that day.

So what we (I don’t even remember if anyone else did it) did was chewed some ‘gutka’ to create a destructive interference of the odour of the alcohol and gutka and I seriously thought it was a good outcome…………I was drrrrrrrrunkkkkkkkkk.
So when my testing time came, warden took over and immediately declared “ isne Gutka chabaya hai sir”…… and since I was drunk I had to argue that I was not and I presented my logic to Riyaaz sir, and he screamed back” U are drunk”….
Kuber was even funnier , he somehow slipped off and slept, or at least pretended to sleep, but our warden smart that he was, quickly followed him and even though Kuber tried hard to act and assure him that he was in deep sleep, was woken up by warden and told to get ready for the test. Kuber had chewed some pepsodent and thought that he would be set free, he too was drrrrrrrrunkkkkkkk……..

Then there was madhur, who thought by arguing and saying that he had had just two pegs could escape the wrath of mr.warden himself… wrong he was – “ Madhur beta……nahin …no….galat baat……aapne sharaab pee hai…..”…….he was declared drrrrrunkkk.

So our recent past caught up with us and all of us were declared drunk………
Letters to the parents would be couriered the next day with of course a big fine being slapped on each of our faces.

So why is this post named after raka if it is the drunkards who are being discussed, of which raka is not one?
Well, it still remains in my memory as one of the most improper communication, not in the words but in the way it was suggested….. The sense of urgency shown in that information that raka provided, was just not there

TiT Match

I never really thought that i would write this thing, but as it is quite apparent now, I am.
There was a TT match yesterday which, though I wasn’t even playing, I was pretty excited about. Much to my displeasure, the excitement was quite overrated.
I went , I saw and I was disappointed.
Okay the thing is that both the players were quite good and I expected to see a good match considering it was a semi-final match
