Life !!

It`s been a really long time when I wrote my last post here, since then life has taken a bounce and the same I am going to share a bit ,so it's a post on personal life today…. 

Almost 2.5 long years I worked there in Allahabad, being in the job profile I was not happy at all with, made me almost sick, I was not happy at all ,I was just living there because I had no guts of leaving that job and search for new one, yes I was a weak boy, rather still I am. Then in January this year ,my roommate for over a year Mohit Trivedi,got job in his hometown Jaipur,so i was alone then. Loneliness made me almost go mad,I was fully frustrated from my life with no hope of change.Same boring life with same schedule continues in Allahabad. I used to talk to no one except my mom,I used to call her daily several times a day ,discuss all other thing except my job. And talking to mom was only my means of getting relaxed but even she didn`t know that I was felling damn trapped there.Lot of times I broke into tears ,felt helpless and shattered.I was just going through the worst phase of my life.
Then, after several hiccups ,god listened to me too and I got a job in PSU sector in june this year. I just can’t explain the feeling in words,that excited I was when I got inducted in new job in Gurgaon. Major part of that happiness was that I am going to meet my best friend (Abhishek Bhardwaj) in Delhi more often now (without bothering the fact that I was supposed to be transferred anywhere in India after two weeks ) .Kher, we both managed to met ,talked a lot like we always do.Whenever we meet ,we spend the whole time taking n talking n talking roaming around the streets and that’s the best way you can meet your friend. Watching cinema, unlike others, we feel is a waste of that precious time of few hours.
Luckily Abhishek also got a better job and shifted to pune (yes prospects of meeting him more often ended though). Super Luckily I got my first posting in my hometown , which was no less than miracle as majority of batch mates got their maiden postings in South India .Living in home daily after 3 years was a dream come true. Office was just 10 min away .All colleagues were great, cooperative and humble , it was just like a home ,never felt like going to Office there, learned things in fun. The best thing that I got from that branch is my colleague ,now a special friend, Naveen,a humble, cooperative and sweet guy. Time used to pass in no time .Office was just another home these days.Going to movies with him during weekends & otherwise made things good. But like they say, when you start enjoying something,kisi ki nazar lag jati hai ,same thing happened and I got transferred to Ghaziabad Office early this month just after completion of 4 months period.
The environment in new branch is not as good as last branch. Being 90% female staff branch, that  connect is missing here ,individuals are less co operative ,remains busy in own work, and leave the office as soon as they finish their work, yes they are fully professional, barring few ,no personal touch at all.
When you are away ,only then one feel the value of what they had! I miss Naveen here everyday ,every now and then.
But we still manage to meet and enjoy ,in fact just yesterday he gave surprised visit to my office .

Now routine life is going on,we have to adapt to changes and stay Firm ! C`est la vie !!

Also i would like to share one beautiful incident. Recently during our routine training programme in Gurgaon recently, I met one colleague from Jaipur Office  .His name was Deepak, He was the most loud guy during the entire 3 days long session,used to ask too tough Qns from faculty and sometimes ultra silly Qns .Overall a impressive guy but a bit over active.However ,I prefer to stay away from such guys, anyhow during lunch we both shared the same table. Starting from basic things ,conversation deepens and I came to know shocking truths about that guy . It is his 13th job (mine 2nd) .Cleared IIT pre ,didn’t had money to fill form for mains.,He even didn`t hesitated to tell that Tea- selling was his first job, then worked at many stores along with studies and now, was sitting before me .He proudly told me his father was a vegetable seller,now paralyzed.
His parents health is not in good condition, still he was laughing ,joking and all …
He was very confident and I could see that in his eyes and he told me that after 7-8 years you’ll see my name in Newspapers.
Even after the conversation I kept thinking about him for long time,he left such a hard impression on my heart and purpose of going to that training prog got accomplished ,although otherwise.
Had I been at his place,I would have thought millions time before telling a colleague that I was a tea-seller.
There were 100 things i could learn from him.
He taught me never to feel shy of your colleagues while asking simple n silly Question,just be confident always, believe in yourself, help old and females ,etc

His watsapp status is – “God always gives us instincts to improve…it`s us ,who has to understand… I do”

I learnt many things from him…. And deepak ,if your reading it ,I would like to say thank you ,happy that I got chance to met you,stay same as you are, you are bang on !!

There are times when you meet people for a short time but we can learn a lot from them within that short time and there are people who had lot of difficulties and had more tough lives than ours and still they are happy and full of life !!

That’s it for today ,its quarter past one in night ,Good Night and good bye.

Don`t forget to comment what you felt about the post !!

After scams and Delhi Gang rape incident once again there is huge outcry in the country, and this time the culprit is PAKISTAN, whose troops crossed the LOC, intruded into Indian side of border and killed two of our brave soldiers Lance Naik Hemraj and Lance Naik Sudhakar by slitting their throats on January 08, 2013.They even beheaded Hemraj and took his head back to Pakistan crossing all limits of barbarism.

After huge media outcry, there followed the so called tough statement by main opposition BJP with Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj asking for 10 heads of Pakistani troops .

Newly appointed External Affair Minister Salman Khursheed after giving measured and limited statements for quite sometime, took the tough stand and called the incident “inhuman, ghastly and unacceptable”

As usual, our #TheekHai PM came out of sleep after 9 days but surprisingly, this time roared high (seems new script writer has taken charge) & stated –  “there can’t be business as usual with Pakistan anymore”
In the mean time , CM of the Uttar Pradesh Akhilesh Yadav finally visited the home of slain soldier Lance Naik Hemraj in Mathura district and recently Chief of Army Staff General Bikram Singh too visited martyr Hemraj’s family.

That’s the story so far but what’s next? What is the solution? How long will we tolerate these barbaric acts of Pakistan and follow up denials? Is that #AmanKiAsha prank more important than lives of our own soldiers?

Those people or news channels who give a call for measured retaliation are termed as war mongers. So should we remain defensive always? And what about those brave soldiers who are killed by repeated cease fire violations from Pakistan every year?  We just read the news in the scrolls of TV news channels about the killing and then change the channel to some entertainment show. Had there been no head missing from the Hemraj’s body, the killing of these two brave hearts too would have been limited to TV scrolls. 
Can we even imagine the feelings of the mother and wife of martyr Hemraj when they would have seen the headless body of the slain Lance Naik. Hemraj joined the army in 2001 and since then he was mostly posted in border areas. He is survived by his widow, a son of 6 years and two daughters.
He was scheduled to return home in next few days but will never return now…

Slain Lance Naik Sudhakar, former village wrestling champion, is survived by widow and just four months old son .

Similar is the story of hundreds of soldiers who get killed along the border and their story don’t even appear in media.
They are true Indians, they are the ones because of whom we sleep in our bedroom without any worry.
Still there are so called Indians for whom friendship with cross border people is more important than the lives of our soldiers, still there are so called Indians for whom that #AmanKiAsha prank is more important than the lives of our heroes.

I am not in favor of war, war is not the solution but we can’t be defensive always, we need to honor those who laid their lives for us,we need to retaliate, we need to tell them not to mess with us.

Cross border friendship is good but no friendship can be above the lives of our soldiers and I agree 100% with the Gaurav Sawant ,Editor, Strategic affairs, Headlines today that we need to IGNORE pak, we have many adjacent countries ,let be friend with them, cut all the relations with Pakistan, let it bear the COST of back stabbing us again and again.

Don’t know why we all remain so keen to increase contact with Pakistan, start buses and trains, business and all, and what we get in return? Beheading!!

Pakistan will never change unless India shows its power . 

Also this time ,it is the question of morale of our army jawans. Here is what former chief said :

At last, i must say ,if not now,next time "if"  Pakistan does something wrong,India must act and India must act "tough".

Whatever happens these days,instantly it is before the people, whether it is in Politics, Science, Sport or Civil society.Oh! i forget to mention a new addition `Army` to it. However,all these fields have merged these days into a single term - `Politics`.
Newspaper is too late, leaving aside even the breaking news of News Channels, Twitter is the most reliable , open, free for all news source of Instant India......

Unprecedentedly and very disheartening, Indian Army, COAS Gen V.K.Singh to be precise, is the prime time topic of debates on all News channels.These type of stories of clash between Government and Army Chief,used to belong to our very own neighbor Pakistan but now the whole Bribe issue,kickbacks and Letter Bomb have compelled us to re-think -Are we going slowly the Pakistan way?
 It may be wrong for writing such hypothetical possibilities but such questions do arise in my heart at least......


As expected,our cross border friends have already started making fun of our Army :

However, on lighter node, i must thank indian channels specially Times Now for not inviting guests from Pakistan on their debates on this issue.

I think many people are having very cynical approach towards Army chief. His few steps in the past may be wrong but linking everything ,whatever he does,to the age row is wrong itself .
The leakage of his letter to PM is matter of grave concern but blaming the chief for the leakage of letter to media is clearly the instance of everyone being cynical of him,the same chief who called this, the case of Treason.

Ironically,most of the media barons and politicians are creating the fuss about leakage, less are talking about the content of the letter ,the very fact that our army is not even in satisfying situations and 97% equipments are of no use and above all, this secret is no more a secret to our enemies and the outside world.

In this country,the whistle-blower has to show his character certificate first, then clear all allegations ,then some one tries to listen what he or she said, if successful in clearing the tests.Same is the case with Team Anna these days against whom the whole parliament becomes unite within hours and when it comes to pass a bill, the copies are torn in the well of the house and everyone including the so called best orator ,the leaders of both houses of parliament ,remains mum forget the ruling party and tongue-less PM .

Actually the state of instant India is not in order these days and this government is solely responsible for this.
It cant keep the equilibrium and the secrecy required to handle and run the nation.Keep aside the scams for which this government is known for, this government cant handle even the space scientists,the same scientist who was its hero on the success of Chandrayaan, was thrashed publicly and thrown out.

Army unhappy, Scientists fumed,opposition ready to topple the government, coalition partners are giving warnings,Supreme court is ready with hunter and civil society is pissed, such is the taste of Instant India !!!!!!

Today we stepped into the year 2012 ,still celebrations are on….Last light when most people were dancing n celebrating at various places I was celebrating with twitter and TV , I was enjoying  the BIG Entertainment awards on Star Plus where after many superb performances , Dhanush came on stage,hold the mike and yes the KOLAVERI Di was there again, where some lyrics were modified just for BIG B…it was as awesome as always…I wont be wrong if I say KOLAVERI DI was the CULT of the year 2011.

I am writing about Kolaveri not because I want to tell you about this,I think each and every bachcha now knows about it, but because I am just in love with it. Have you ever seen MTV playing a Tamil Song?? All Radio Stations playing one TAMIL oriented song ?? Record Youtube views in just few days ?? No!  but all this happened for the phenomenon  KOLAVERI DI.   


KOLAVERI , a Tamil word  that means – “ murderous rage  “ but who cares, what we like is overall song, tune n all, ultimate combination. Lot of people can be seen humming it out around us. But, Hello, there are people who cares a lot about it and called it even  “ insult to sensibility”. I`ll come to it later  but let me tell you guys how i first heard about it. Actually one day while going through my twitter Timeline i saw my friend  Abhishek  was talking to someone from south about KOLAVERI DI.Immediately i jumped n asked him about this and he suggested me to rather google it but after few days it was all over on radio and TV channels,it was how i came to know about it and i superliked it after seeing it for first time on Youtube. 
        The song was officially released on 16 November 2011, and it instantly became viral on  social  networking sites  for its quirky   "Tanglish" (Tamil and English)  lyrics . The song became the most searched  YouTube  video in  India and   an internet phenomenon across Asia. Within  few days, YouTube honoured the video with  a  Recently  Most Popular Gold Medal Award for receiving a large number of hits within few days. The  Song is meant for the  Tamil movie ‘3’ . It  was  sung  and  written  by  DHANUSH and directed by  another  sensation ANIRUDH RAVICHANDER.
This song soon become the cult and made DHANUSH an overnight star in India , if not Asia. And according to DHANUSH, song`s success has changed his life spreading his stardom from South to whole India.
The entire nation seems to be swinging to kolaveri Di and the song has become a rage on TV too .It has been dominating the airwaves on all music channels so much so that the veteran Hindi actor Amitabh Bachchan also went gaga over the song.Everyone from child to aged one can be seen shaking legs on the beats of the song but there was a name who came openly criticizing the song, none other than our own Javed Akhtar Sahab…. Here is what he wrote on twitter ::

Fir kya tha...whole twitter world was after him.....janab ne to publicity stunt karar diya.....

Then came another guy but he was in fovour of Javed Sahab ,claimed creativity at all time low... 

Then Archana Negi asked very legitimate Question ,what about your creativity  "Meri laundry ka ek bill" sir and attracted a furious rebuttal from Javed Sahab......  

Then came another Anti Kolaveri bug and claimed no one will ....ok read it yourself......

Another bouncer to Javed Sahab asked what about yours 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13........ to which he requested to hear the lyrics again......

Then Soham sahab requested him to be a bit sensible....

Then there was the jackpot question that if Big B and others can praise Kolaveri ,why cant you? Here is what he replied ::

I was not having enough calories to follow that tweet fight further but before i apply full stop to Big fight, here is what Big B tweeted about KOLAVERI CULT ::

"Just heard `Kolaveri Di` after much talk on it......its so original and catchy.....congrats Dhanush and Aishwarya(Rajni`s daughter),"

Now its the time for Kolaveri REMIXES..... how can i finish this post without mentioning the sweetest Kolaveri remix by cute Nevaan Nigam,son of sensational Sonu Nigam.

Kolaveri becomes phenomenon across the Border too and Pakis came up with 
"Democracy kolaveri Di".....

Still thinking what this Kolaveri Song is??????? Here are the lyrics ::
These days even police is asking -

Twitter & Android ::: Yes Twitter and Android are really the integral part of my life these days.....
Initially it was Twitter which i started using ,as my closest friend Abhishek Bhardwaj  advised me to be regular on it and be a bit interactive.For first few weeks i found it the most boring site on internet but later on , i become addicted to it.But it was bit difficult to remain online on twitter on laptop all the time,Then my same friend  told me to go for android mobile handset.
In April this year i become the proud owner of LG P-500 (Optimus One ) Android phone (version 2.2)

I loved all its features and i m still loving it and now i remain in touch with twitter all the time with my android phone via Ubersocial......

Few bays back only i got it upgraded from Froyo 2.2 Android version to Gingerbread 2.3 
I am going to share the changes in these two versions via different pictures ..i hope you will like it....
Its time for the pictures rather screenshots to speak......

Lets start with the screenshots of my old version i.e. Android 2.2 :::

To begin with,the app that helped me in taking these screen shots - SCREENSHOT BY KASTORSOFT 
It is said that it works generally on rooted phones but luckily it worked on mine .

That used to be my home screen powered by "Beautiful widgets app" that i got for free from my friend...

Now, its Market time !!Lets buy the apps here,but in this market we can get lot of things in free too...
 Its the new upgraded market...(it works on both versions)
Its a bit slow ,older version of market was much faster.

When i  feel free ,i turn on my Opera mini browser to read some excellent n refreshing blogs like this one ::

Thats another window of my home screen ::

Apps and apps and apps ::

This used to be my dialer screen in froyo ::

My Gallery :::

Hmmm....all these snapshots were from my Android 2.2 version ..

Here comes the screenshots from the upgraded version 2.3 Ginger bread ::::

You can itself notify the changes,however there are no big alterations---

Notification Screen ::

As we can notice,signal bar colour has changed into green, Also the Notification screen background colour has been changed from White to Black....  

 Thats my new homescreen ::

Android version has changed to 2.3.3 =

 This time i took screen shots from same app but the look has changed a bit ::

Thats the honeycomb clock :::

 Again the App section ::

The contacts page ::

My Gallery ,yes you are allowed to roam into it ::

Thats my GTalk screen, i talk too much na...sorry ,go ahead ::

The main Settings Page,please notice the symbols  have been made colourful in this version ,no major changes ::

Thats one of my Home Screen currently ::

One major thing i would like to share that ,after upgrade many of the pre installed  applications like dictionaries and phone specific apps (LG apstore in my case) vanish and cannot be used in gingerbread.
I still miss my preinstalled offline dictionary which no longer work in this version 2.3.
I have to cope with this online dictionary ::

The bottom pop-up screen has also changed a bit ::

Thats my favourite Music App  SAAVN...just search any song and you will find it instantly ::

And thats my Favourite Game ::

Music Station :

This Battery usage screen has also changed in this version ::

You can notice the signal bar here have changed to white from Green,they keep on flipping ::

........Thats all.....yes ...thats all..

I was equally surprised when i dint found any major changes in these two versions .
I was expecting a lot but no such change is there.As everyone say battery consumption will decrease,but i dint felt any major change.
Infact, i lost many of the important preinstalled apps.

But its all not vain,it has bought some colourful changes in my phone...Also maybe i am yet to explore some more changes...

New version of the Android (2.4.0) is also coming soon and it will be called ICE-CREAM SANDWICH but my phone no longer support any further upgrade.

But I M LOVING IT >>>>I LOVE ANDROID>>>>I LOVE TWITTER...........if you wish, do follow me at twitter/manishrajora

If you know any other change or wish to correct me..Please do write in the comments section.....All your views from every single reader of this post are awaited in the comments section below.........
