Tweets about Bangalore

It's been quite a long time, since I'm in Bangalore and now it seems as though Bangalore is my second native.
So, here's a collection of some of my Tweets on Bangalore (which is my way of showing love for this awesome place.)

...and it certainly brings back lots of memory :P

PS: Apologies to myself for blogging after soooo long long I mean very mean very long...

Shayari Time!! ;)

The poetess in me has once again arisen in the form of Shayari.
So, here's a short and simple (& amateur) Shayari in Hinglish ;)

ek dil tha sine mein,
kho gaya kahin,
ek muskurahat thi labo pe
kho gayi kahin,
ek sabd tha zubaan pe
kho gaya kahin,
ek tara tha aasman mein
kho gaya kahin

to be contd...hopefully =)

Is it really a "Happy" Independence Day?

It’s been almost 7 decades now, since India's fight with the British Raj came to the end. No doubt I’m proud to breathe in free India, but I’m simultaneously ashamed of the corruption, crime against women, pollution and cheap politics that actually reign over India today.

Though great men in history have fought many battles, both violent and nonviolent, to free us from the Raj, it is 'we the people' of today who need to fight numerous battles with our own corrupt authorities.

Its only when we will win these battles, that the real significance of ‘Happy Independence Day’ will imply.

In the meanwhile, don't forget to check out the amazing "Freedom Offer" via

Happy Independence Day!!
Long Live India

My Diary Writing Experience!

I recently updated the parenting blog with the topic "Diary Writing – An Experience and How Tos".
As this post talks about my personal experience so I thought of sharing this on my blog too!

Excerpt :
"School days are certainly one of the best phases of one’s life. It’s the time when all you worry about is to find the eraser that fell under the desk while the teacher was busy explaining some important concepts.

There was enough time left for leisure activities after returning from the school and so I used to sit down making some creative crafts from waste materials or continue with my diary writing. Yes! Diary writing… It was (and will always be) one of my favorite activities." Continue reading

This is my first (and funny!) vine video I created for the purpose of this post.

Satyamev Jayate TV show | A Must Watch for Every Indian

Satyamev Jayate TV show - An Eye-Opener

One of the King Khans of Bollywood, Mr Amir Khan's most recent real life show "Satyamev Jayate" TV show is inspiring & an eye-opener as it comes up with some of the most common yet most unshareable issues faced by the Indian people.

Its commendable to state that the show has picked up some of the most senetive issues which, victims as not able to share even with their family or close friends.

After watching this show which highlights some of the common taboos, it bewares us of any such danger plus makes us confident enough to face such issues.

Satyamev Jayate TV show - Towards Uniting India

This is one show which clearly shows unity in diversity as it unites people of India ranging from different religious sects, geographical location or having different mother tongue.

After popular TV shows like Ramayan, Mahabharat, Rangoli, Chitrahaar, Surbhi and Shanti this first of its kind IRL (in real live) show should be watched by every Indian living in India, USA or anywhere. This one shows should beat the TRPs of all the unrealistic and aggravating Indian 'saas-bahus' shows combined.

The show has already started to impact the government of India, as it has passed a new law against child sex abuse and provision for generic medicines to poor people has been considered. It has also gained much "likes" on social media site Facebook. Keeping fingers crossed to see more impact on Indian Govt. and altering the mindset and biased views of Indian society.

Millions of Hats Offs to India's Oprah - Aamir Khan for producing & hosting TV Show "Satyamev Jayate". Truth stands Invincible.

The most common type of Human Disability

All have heard about physically disabled. But do you know what's worse than that?

Its being Mentally Disabled. People with good eyesight ( or even with specs like me) ignore or unsee the most obivious. People can talk non-stop for hours together but when it comes to neighbour's justice they become dumb. Similarly, people over hear many a time. But when you ask them to listen to your pains/sorrow they pretend to be deaf.

In my belief people with special abilities are much better than 'Normal' people who are MENTALLY DISABLED.

 Though we are already in 21st century;Way Ahead of early men. The Cure for Mentally Disability is yet to be found.

Its sad but true.

So much in Common. How Come??

How come all those great men out there..all over the world like those evangelists/entrepreneurs**....have so much in common...THEY'VE.....mostly

  • seen tough times, 
  • starved (sometimes),
  • been in financial crisis
  • decades+ years of experiences 
  • enterprising nature + right attitude
  • a cool baritone
  • a cute/loving family
  • and have worked for big Companies OR worked for companies which became BIG.
  • a good syllabled name ( or maybe their names sound cool as they are successful )
  • and are self-motivated, happy, humble, down to earth, empathetic,
  • never stop learning, innovating
  • can be googled for more info 
  • 500+ Connections on Linkedin
  • And have a Wikipedia entry.

** (Some of the marketing evangelists/entrepreneurs names which comes to my mind right now are - Bill gates, Chris Brogan, Lewis H, Guy K, Robert, Mark Z., Larry Page, Lt. Steve J. Om Malik.... and many more)
