Back to the Gutter

Filed under: India — Tags: — nitin @ 9:27 pm

Here is my comeback.. the most awaited.. heeeh..

Place:HongKong
Time :12:07 pm

If you guys remember, When i left for India , i had a post named” Out of the Gutter”.. now this post can’t get a better title than this .. right?

Folks..
My time in Vancouver /canada was awesome.. I roamed a lot, seens a lot, heard a lot about this country. Am too much excited to be back to India, so this post won’t talk about my experiences in Canada.Detailed experiences may follow soon, depending on how badly things need to be mentioned.

I have been waiting here for more than 8 hrs @ airport, but its not a problem.Am relaxing @ the lounge arranged for me by my generous company.I can see flights taking off and landing in front of my eyeys. am not tired to see this takeoff/land cycle.. each time its a diffrerent fun to watch and get amused.The sheer power with which she takes off is worth a imaginaztion.

This Airport is special..It’s one of the largest airport’s , i heard so.. The sheer magnitude can be confirmed by the fact that i took a train inside the airport to reach @ my target terminal.

Bas, abhi India ke garage jaise airport pe aana baaki hain..

no nono wait nitin..

Before¬†I land to India, i will have to stop expecting things which will never happen.. Thats the only key.. otherwise frustation is bound to happen.More curses will be given to government , politicians and public if i keep on expecting thinghs to be like canada, which is not logically correct.. bu but.. having said that, is it impossible for us to have world class infrastructure.. dont we deserve it? cant we make it.. ?? We can, so why can’t we crib about it.. ?

Anyway.. lecture baazi band.. abhi Flight pakadta hoon..5 ghante main ek movie dekhunga..otherwise sleeping.. Toxic guys.. CM is coming to receive me… tum log bhi aa jao.. Get your only chance for getting famous.. aa jaoo.. byeee..

Misconceptions of Guys about Girls….

Filed under: Fun, India, jokes, my views — Tags: — nitin @ 1:57 pm

This stuff is a tribute to all single boys and gals who have been involved in the vicious circle of “Friendship”. One will get a better idea about gals and their behaviour to their male pals..(Its 100% truth – ISO20000 certified)

(Its from my archive mails…. )

Misconceptions:

Girls’ relationship with guys is a bigger mystery than girls themselves.It’s not just about boyfriends, we’re talking about guy friends that gals have.

Do you have a gal who is just a friend? Are confused why the frequency of calls increases as exams loom closer? Or why she always hangs around with the moron who isn’t fit to wear Jeetendra’s white shoes? Here’s a ready reckoner for you:

Just a friend

Well, you are like a show piece in my house. I will call you whenever I need you. If you call me home the chances are 9 out of 10 times she might say, “Oh Rahul, I am going out can you call me after 2 days??”

Rahul: “Where are you going Shilpa??”

Shilpa: “None of your business” and bangs the phone.(Useless fellow.Hmmph!).

Good Friend

You are like a TV remote control. I need you and I know that. But I try using you when I really need you.

Rahul calls: “Hi Shilpa”,

Shilpa: “Hi Rahul. I am going out with family I will call you back. Bye”

(Shilpa calls back after two days)

Shilpa: “What do you want Rahul? Why did you call that day?”.

Rahul: “Generally”.

Shilpa: “Oh ok. I got to go out. Will call you later. Bye.”

Will call when she needs lecture notes or some concert tickets.

Very good friend

Well you are like the pressure cooker safety value for the girl.

She will need you when she wants to bring out her pain or anger on someone.

Basically, she wants to talk to you. And you are special to her.

Shilpa: “You know Rahul, Shekhar is not eating. He doesn’t sleep and is not able to concentrate on his studies. I think he doesn’t like me anymore.

And yesterday I saw him with another girl”.

Rahul: “Who is Shekhar??”

Shilpa : “My boyfriend.”

Rahul: Oh! ok. ūüė¶

Best Friend

You are like the auto rickshaw driver. She can’t live without you.

And don’t be mistaken. You are not her boyfriend. But you are allowed to take her little doggie around the park so that he (not you!) can have fun .

Rahul Shopping. Rahul Movie. Rahul Coffee. Rahul,you pay. I am having fun.

Rahul is now sure that he should go ahead and propose. He dares.

Shilpa: “But I thought we were just friends.

We should remain friends

Rahul. Plus, I have a boy friend you know that.”

Rahul: What?? (Rahul drinks all night).

Best of the Bestest Friends

Ok now you are really special. You are

dad-cum-boyfriend-cum-brother-cum-everything.

Ultimately you are the darling servant of the girl. You take her around.You make her project.

You do her assignments. You are allowed to take her doggie around. You can hold hands on the beach.

You can see the sun set with her (because she wants to do everything she drags you along). But but but… don’t be mistaken. She has a boyfriend who works for a huge software company and earns 3 times the salary you earn and has a flat in PoesGardenor Boat Club or Hiranandani area.

Shilpa: “Hi Rahul. I am getting engaged to Shekhar.

Shekhar this is Rahul,he is my bestest friend”.

Rahul: Hi Shekhar . (Hand shake. Shekhar breaks Rahul’s wrist).

Rahul is now heart broken and wrist broken.

Boyfriend

Uh… No comments dude. You’re already Gone

For all Rahul type guys… Make sure that you tell Shilpa about Mamta. And about Maya… and about Tina also…

This will open Shilpa’s eyes!!!!

Hope John likes it ;-)

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† My dear laad friend will be going to UK for onsiteWork.A noble thought germinated in the compost.The idea was to gift his Ko-league ūüėČ who was a JOHN .Would that reciprocate in a Client appreciation mail?Well as i said , the thought was noble , so just stop such vile beliefs grow in ya mind ūüĎŅ .
But the choice was difficult.There was no clue about his habits , hobby and taste.The two were like configured machines who seldom veered to topics other than Deployment related issues,PDF generation and greece language support. We planned to pick the gift from MG road pune.It has 2 Jaipuri shops with some traditional stuffs.

Now the search for the right gift started…lets wind it up fast.
(pointing to a flower vase)
Me :Yeh wala Sahi hain.
She : “Utna nahi”… uska color utna kuch¬†nahi hain.

Me :He will like this ASH Tray ,Suttebaaj hoga.
She :I don’t know if he smokes.
Me :What the hell.??.Being a John and that too in software..am sure he smokes. 8) (No changes)

.
.
.
.(lots of Deep Thinking from both side)
.

Alladin ka chirag?

Me :Now this is something pretty cool.Wat ya say?
Shopkeeper :Sir , its the best we have.
She :Ismain ek size bade hain?No-No a bit smaller than that…. Something in betwn these two.?
Shopkeeper :Madam, iske beech wala to nahi hain.
She : They don’t have proper sizes.
Me: Kya yaar ūüė¶ … aap ke paas correct sizes nahi hain, nahi to yeh wala uthane wale the..

We moved to next shop which is in the same lane and owned by the same owner(which was realised later).The Sales man was a hyper active middle aged man , I loved his service.
We saw a couple of John’s wandering for some antique in the same shop.An ūüí° popped in my mind (why not catch these whites..they may help in selecting the best choice).

Me :Hello sir…..(and our story .blah blah…..)
John :” Am not English..”(So wat? you are white) ..”Germans have a different taste.Is he he/she?”(he).

After a long thought and explanation…He suggested that anything which has good handwork and sophisticated design and carvings will amaze any John.
Again the search started with new Keywords.This time it was rigorous with more details to be noted resulting in easy rejection and filterations.My choice didn’t materialise as we were from 2 different planets.(Mars &Venus).The hyperactive salesman who was earlier busy wid other customers saw us confused and rushed for our help.

He started bragging about his experience in this business,Wat John likes,picks etc…pointing to every object on display and making amazing facial experiences to show the intricate details of the work.We thought he would solve our problem but finally it ended up in more confusion.20 + items where spread before us like a buffet dinner but each item was only 80% appealling.I was wondering where to bring that 20% from or rather 30%¬†for her?
With lots of Dhaachegiri ..the plan was to see some other shop ‚ě° .But it was too late and this task was supposed to be finished before EOD.Plan changed.We moved back to the earlier shop.This is called how you retain a customer.

At the sight of we entering the shop again, the sales man with more energy than before showed us what he was hiding from us earlier.He opened the fresh stocks.Yeah.And there we found something,something she was looking for.

We settled for this Elephant carved from a single piece of wood with her/his siblings.The attraction was the perfect shape and balance of the Piece.It was big enough and not tiny either and not much bulky .I instantly realized from her expression that She found her missing 30% ūüôā in this one.Celebrations,joys and excitement ruled my mind.(earlier i was pissed off,tired and after looking at so many items I felt like anything is good option. ūüė° ).

Indian Elephant

But dear readers..if you still reading this shit..then hold on.The one thing we indians never forget is bargaining.Other’s were trying it too.
So with all my strength I started the bargaining show.

Shopkeeper: Sir 20% is off.

Me:Common yaar.. I am always ready to pay reasonable amount.Please make it 25%.
She:But we are taking 2 pieces…(Murmuring to me and kicking my leg to settle for much more discount.)
Shopkeeper :Sir..its all i can offer..you go to any shop and ask.
Me :I know you own all shops here..so prices will be same (¬† ūüėÜ )
Shopkeeper : smiling.. “Sir , aap bhi kya mazak karte hain..”

Ok ok…ha ha thik hain thik hain..yes yes…bas kya …No Noo..chalna.. chod yaar..lelo yaar ..smiles..

Finally HandShake.. ūüėÄ

The deal was over.
Rs 2700 for 2 pieces of our Elephant.Everyone was contended and happy about the deal.I hope John likes the stuff too.He will surely, because if you give any gift with all the right feelings , it will be acceptable to every wise human being.So why you think am telling you this experience..??
Need to say more ūüėõ ?

Trip to Alibaug , Kashid beach and Murud Zanjira

Its our traditional practice to spend 31st night in some far place from the hustling and bustling of the city.2007 was welcomed in the land of coconuts and fishes ..any guess?GOA a big NO.. Its was our beautiful  Coastal region of Konkan and we almost travelled 12-1300 kms round trip , upto Malvan,Sindhudurg and its virgin beaches.The beaches were quite clean and it was  worth spending a time there.Specially Vengrula Beach.
This time it was a spot pretty near to mumbai and it was Alibaug where we celebrated our New Year.
Lot’s of action and masti unrolled right from meeting up of the gang , start of the journey from Kalyan till we dropped to our home back.It was 2 nights and 3 days of fun , excitement , Dhammal Masti and 1000 volts josh .We only survived on small fish,big fish and only fish and only bottled water .Oh Fish!! ūüôā

You may be wondering what we did in a small place like Alibaug.Well Alibaug really doesn’t have anything great either ,all it offers is some dirty beaches and strangely some good eating places.Varsoli beach was the only one decent enough¬† which was our first spot.Just 25 kms from Alibaug down south is Kashid Beach and another 50 kms you will find Murud Janzira beach and fort.
So we had a good plan of checking out all these places and we had ample time too in our hand.

Alibaug beach is really not the recommended beach .Its like our Juhu chowpathy ; Dirty .The water smells of chemicals and froth confirming of all those waste released from the Ispath Industries lining the western coast  of Alibaug,Uran and JNPT .
Kashid beach is relatively far more better but not quite up to mark.This beach has almost all the right ingredients offered by nature like white sand , large part of beach is dry and less polluted water .The¬† place can be a hotspot for tourist,but sadly and for me “disgustingly” the place lacks good restaurants, comfortable changing rooms and Cleanliness .I saw women climbing mountains for toilets and men easily doing spring water irrigation all over the place.We Indians are master’s in making a place filthy/dirty.This beach is a complete ignorance from the eyes of people who can sense potential tourism in the region,to be truthful no one cares for this beach , not even the locals and forget the government.All focus is on Goa it seems.

Murud Zanjira is another messy place, still a one time visit.Another blunder of ignorance for a place of such a historic importance and a potent tourism destination.If we Indians feels the place to be dirty , what wud be the kind of image in the minds of foreign tourist?
Worst part is no decent eating place nearby.Still the journey to the fort in the boat and the adventure of stepping out on the steps of the Gigantic Fort from the shaking boat is really exciting and dangerous.Its really slippery out there.
The Guide will utter the same crap like for other forts, if you have an¬† experience.Some dates, some names ….some hidden tunnels and finally some idiotic jokes,but still do make it a part of your package. ūüôā

For anyone visting Alibaug¬† do visit a simple,decent restaurant named “Sukh sagar”,its near Alibaug ST depot.The food if not authentic KonKani , still satisfies your hunger with wide variety of sea foods.And don’t miss the drink named “soll Kadi”.Its like buttermilk ,but made with cocunut juice and some Kokam in it.Its as refreshing like a chilled beer.We liked it so much that when leaving for mumbai we parcelled 24 packets just for our return journey.

The 30th night was a night of friends who where high,drunk,in control and who got emotional, grave’s were dug out just to make the past pleasant and to fix all¬† the pending bugs.We sat in the cold ,rounded ,poking jokes ,belching smoke¬† .. blabbering , followed by discussion’s on past,broken hearts , opening the unsolved mysteries of friendship and betrayal,.allegations ..justifications, tears .. tears on smiles but¬† finally burying the hatchets.

Special moments were caught on mobiles ,recording’s of the converstation were made unknowingly by some moron.Hey you did a great job.¬† :-)The sight was captured digitally.Someday our brain may wither away the pleasant memories , but we have¬† harnessed the technology and frozen the golden¬†moments in sound files ,digital pics and offcourse this blog which¬†will remain close to the heart and which will make us¬†nostalgic by remembering the good old days.

Next year the target is NorthIndia…and we are coming to rock it…yoyooyo

I booked the accomodation quite late without considering the RUSH and Demand during the year end.I called up 20 odd places from below list and finally got lucky in a place in varsoli.He charged 1500/- for 1 day.This price is tripled during 31st celebration time.The actual cost is 500 Bucks  during off season.The room was OK kind wid a TV.

Customer Service in a pune restaurant

This Story was sometime back in pune at Koregaon park.There’s a restaurant called “Prems” known for his ambience,simple look and good tasty food.It was not my first time either ,so as usual we occupied a seat in the corner..yeah just two of us ūüôā
The speciality of this place is “Candle Light Dinner”. when the sun sets in east the candles make’s the sene¬†at Prems.We kept waiting for couple of minutes for any of waiters attention.They were dressed in nice blackie stuff from head to toe.But not to my horror ,no was noticing us or to be frank ,maybe ignoring us or else they forgot their job.Just after we occupied our seats one “John Couple”( its my way of saying “Firangis” ) made their way to¬†tables 2 rows across ,diagonally opposite to me.
It was past 8-10 minutes..i was still waiting for atleast a glass of water if not the menu card.Also calling “waiters” by doing SSSSHHHH SSSSSHHH is not cool these days after that “Sanju’s munnabhai scene”.God damn, i was about to shout “are you got blind?”
Forget me, John’s table was still dark without a lighted candle..I considered my self lucky.But somehow I was getting restless from inside.The scene of John couple waiting for over 10 minutes without a lighted candle on their table somehow made me feel uncomfortable..kind of ashamed ..The guests from the WEST cudn’t ask for more..I could sense their frustation ,they still hiding it with a plastic smile moving neck round 360 degrees , just¬†to get the candle lighted.

Finally , he showered mercy on me and took my order for one Chicken gravy and four Tandooori rotis all at once as we wanted to finish as soon as possible.Again , after a break of 18-19 minutes our Gravy item comes with 2 rotis.It took me just 3 minutes before I was hungry for one more roti..but our Waiter was invisible now..It was really diffcult to spot him in dimlight of soft candles..I stood up searching for him..I sit down again..Yeah ..i spotted him..I am glaring at him so that he can understand that am asking for him..some hsssing soundss..argggggggg..bastard!!!!

He was attending other customers , then again went inside kitchen..5 minutes past..again he comes out widout my rotis ,completely ignoring me and moving to next table and taking new order.
Now i barked..”Roti kab laega?”.
Waiter:”5 min”. Without any hint of regret for serving us badly.Com-mon the gravy was about to freeze in pune’schilling weather..and this guy was roaming in paris ,london and forgot India..The John finally got his table lighted up..yeah after 15 minutes that too without a glass of water.

Finally he brought the missing rotis..I ordered him for a rice plate..again same story of ignorance , of waiting for lifetime..Each minute was¬†like an hour during that time..We felt that we are at his mercy for the food.The rice again took 10 -12 more minutes..now it was the time for making bill..again 10+ more minutes,inspite of me asking to return soon…I was really pissed off..I wanted to piss at him but then thought of catching hold of some manager or his boss ..Cudn’t find anyone as it was near closing time ..The bill counter was also missing which was noticed only on that day..they got the bills cleared from the kitchen i think.. ¬†ūüôā .I swore that I wud think 1000 times before visiting this place again.
But, it’s always the food which brings me back..but the service SUCKS big time..The pathetic service of this restaurant is well known now, but still the business is cool.Why?because we are not the “Ideal Customers”.

The managment or their bosses should note that their ppl are not doing good service .And not only “Prems”.. Customer service is neglected in many well known places like RiverView and Chutneys etc.Once the business is established ..they don’t bother to maintain the same level of service¬† forever.Even quality gets degraded as time passes..I have heard”Hotel Blue Nile ” serves some very good Non-Veg stuff..I think that was history but people still believe it and crowd the place..

Any intellectual or a logical business man should never forget this simple funda of maintaing Quality and service for retaining Customers which eventually pays in superior profits.
Coming back to Ideal customers,We need to ask for things we need.”The customer is King” is not an Indian philosophy ,it emerged in the WEST in the face of rising ,booming Consumerism Economy.We need to imbibe this concept in our brains .Customer’s too should opt to blacklist such places or raise their voices by complaining and giving sincere feedback on payment counters or personally to the attendees.Guys..common behave like a king ..wat’s the harm?

Our problem is we are too shy for saying “NO” on face.Also , we should stop paying tips when not required..i knw its kinda difficult task for regualr TIP givers,but ask the question to the Customer inside you…were you really satisfied by the serivce??.no no… not the food but the service.You have paid for the food..and tips goes for the service right? If answer is No to first question, then don’t be ashamed of leaving the bill widout a Tip..These days , I exit from the restuarant with full confidence without putting a TIP.If the waiter comes before you leave..tell him…I didn’t like your service..He may take that thing “DIL PE”.Put the seeds of competition between waiters.Lets be more harsh on Tips.If every other customer behaves like a king..I bet these guys will be on their toes..and we will get wat we need and what we need is Value for time and money.So its a demand and supply concept after all..some are intelligent enough to understand the demand and make the supply voluntarily..some are forced to the supply because of rising demands…this sounds logical to me atleast..

I want consumer India who fear no one ,ready to screw up the service providers for any lousy treatment or if  taken for granted.The same funda applies for your Quench for better administration..better democracy and to stop corruption.
Lets Raise voice !!!

Weekend Masti and Shopping

Lots¬†many things happened 2day.We friends decided to meet up at JJ Hostel from where we were supposed to pick another frnd.The count of 6 dropped to 3… Public gave big “taang” at last moment.Anyway I was excited as it was after a long time I was visiting south mumbai..maybe after 6 months or soo.

Reaching JJ Hostel:
But fate had some other plans for us.Myself and ramee boarded 11:40am slow local¬†for CST from Mulund.I was doing my favourite Latko.com..but then gave company to Ramee.As we were about to reach Ghatkopar, the train stopped.I thought maybe some signal problem.Waited for¬†15 minutes¬†..until ppl started grunting about a train standing right in front of our train.Disgustingly ..I went to the door..and made my space to peep outside as I¬†wanted to be eyewitness to the incident to really believe it.Not this time mannn…!!!!..
Such problems were not new for me as I had seen such scene many a times.I presumed¬† some kind of¬† accident of¬†person trying to cross railway lines¬†..After 15 more minutes… , another train was queued up behind¬†us.We were sandwitched betwn 2 local trains now.Mumbai public as usual, in there rush to some place or the other, dropped from the train and did “Ghatkopar march“.

Still unaware of the problem,i thought this will be sorted in¬†another 10-15 minutes or so..So we waited patiently..Later some one¬†broke the suspense revealing that some coaches of a local derailed betwn Ghatkopar and vidhyavihar..Realising this mishap..It was understood¬†that¬†there cannot be any immediate measures from the Railways..which wud certainly take very long to clear the route.So finally decided to jump off the train and do “Ghatkopar March” myself.We did.I was in no mood to even think of catching a fast local from platform No.4 as it was crowded like “Kumb ka Mela”.

Mumbai is a place where we can get to any destination with somekind of transport or the other.We opted for a bus to Sandhurst Road.But we were informed that there was no direct route from Ghatkopar to CST-side.So we took 305 till Dadar TTcircle.Thereafter boarded a bus No.2 which would drop just at the start of JJ Flyover.We were the clever ones.indeed…many ppl were strangled at Ghatkopar Station..some intelligent like us made a move to the nearest bus-stop to fleee from the chaotic site.Well forgot to mention.the incident at Ghatkopar Bus stop .The scene at that bustop was also similar¬†as many ppl were now forced to use bus.There were petty fights between¬†( Kartavya nisht) driver and passengers over boarding the¬†bus from the front door.

It was really not a good choice to get in from the Packed back side door ,so i asked ramee to hop in¬†from front like other passengers(I never break rules ūüėČ ).That Zealot¬†driver¬† asked all the ladies who were boarding the bus from front to get out of the bus.Then our Mumbai ke public came in to action..they correctly pointed out the situation at Ghatkopar station¬†and asked the driver to keep cool and¬†¬†compromise his values during such circumstances..so finally ladies were allowed and the driver who ..initally stopped the engine over verbal amusement/abusement, later he started the bus and finally we sailed in glory of our victory over that stubborn driver..

Exhausted as we were ..we met the third partner..He was waiting for us from 12:30 pm onwards.we shaked hands at 3:30 pm finally.
Thus was the whole episode of reaching JJ hostel from Mulund.

Mumbai Shopping Festival:

It had been very long since i shopped for cheap items from Mumbai streets.But this day will be remembered for breaking that jinx ..which was based on the fact that “Branded is paisa Vasool and cool“.
We went¬†loitering arnd Fashion Street..I was not looking for clothes ,but for other items..I got my self a watch , a fashionable HarlyDavidson Wallet and a funky looking wrist band.We all did shopping for something arnd 900 bucks …all investment in roadside products..

3 watches for Rupees 300.
1 Wallet for Rs 150.
2 Wrist band  for 35 and 30 each.
1¬† finger ring(ladies) for 10 bucks ūüôā
“Freakonomics” the book¬†for Rs 40 …good print mind you..
total 5 Shorts for 300 bucks just outside Churchgate Station.

Wallet watch and handband

We used to shop like this in¬†Bandra,Fort,CST and sometimes Chor Bazar at 4:30 am in morning…ya believe me.. those were college days..Ah loved those days..

5 spice Ka Khana:
Finally..we had some really delicious Chinese food at 5 spice.
Its opposite to Old Reserve bank Building.The Quantity of “Prawns Rice” was sufficient for 3 of us.We had “Chicken pepper chilly” for starters.

The staff was almost wearing a chinese look..I wonder whether they were from china or from our North East region ?The  lady at reception had wore a chinese outfit which was quite pretty.
This place  is a recommendation from me as a Paisa Vasool (Value for money) for ambience, good taste,Quantity and quality.

It was the day where we roamed like hell..before we started dinning all six legs were calling for a walking strike..somehow we coaxed them and finally succumbed to their demand and landed at 5 spice.
Good food really opens up all the senses and we were feeling fresh again..

Ramee/Shirish¬† ..inspite of a bad start we ¬†had a wonderful end to the day …

How to use torrents to Download movies ,mp3 and other files

What is BitTorrent?
BitTorrent (often abbreviated to ‘BT’) is a protocol (a set of rules and description of how to do things) allowing you to download files quickly by allowing people downloading the file to upload (distribute) parts of it at the same time. BitTorrent is often used for distribution of very large files, very popular files and files available for free, as it is a lot cheaper, faster and more efficient to distribute files using BitTorrent than a regular download.

¬ĶTorrent is a BitTorrent client. A ‘client’ in this case is a computer program that follows the rules of a protocol. For example, HTTP (HyperText Transfer Protocol) is the protocol used to download web pages and other content – like this page – and your HTTP client (or browser) is the program you use to get those web pages. Some popular browsers include Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, and Opera. To an extent, they all work the same way because they follow the same set of rules.

Just as there are multiple HTTP clients, there are multiple BitTorrent clients, and ¬ĶTorrent is one such BT client.

I have made this video..just for those people who doesnt know the power of torrents and are always in need of finding ways for downloading latest movies ,songs,ebooks and stuffs..check it out..
you need a ‘torrent file’ (often abbreviated as ‘.torrent’ or just ‘torrent’) to download content available using BitTorrent

In this example..The site used for downloading torrent is

http://www.torrentportal.com

BitTorrent client used is Utorrent 1.6 you can download it from here.
Just click the green DOWNLOAD Button..

  • Now you just need to add torrent file to your TorrentClient..
  • Follow the video for detail steps..its really very very simple

Top 5 Torrent’s downloading ¬†site..

1. Torrentz

2. Mininova

3. ThePirateBay

4. Torrentspy

Life god fate and me

Filed under: India, my views — Tags: — nitin @ 7:02 pm

Sometimes i really try to brainstorm about who we are,why are we living on this planet about re-incarnation,about soul and heaven-hell and all such stupid things.Trying to find answers of such complex questions is really the mission of life for some researchers..But trying to question everything is not the perorgative of only reasearchers.. ūüôā¬†

coming back..I really wonder about the word called “naseeb”(fate).
What is Fate?Fate of a person means that every period of life of a person is pre-decided or is going to happen in future at any cost.Fate is the order of the supreme power “god” written or decided for every human.
which means if everything is predecided then why should we worry about our future?Finally no matter wat¬†we do..Everything is going to happen as per the plan chalk out by the supreme power.Is there a chance of any modification to one’s fate?If every actions performed by us are actually been predefined by god..it means god is running our life like a puppet.

So any action performed by us is by the will of the god like murdering,rape,bank loot,massacre…because it was bound to happen.Any murderer can claim that he is innocent ,as its not his fault or his will..it was the will of the god.But someone can argue that if god is there then devil should also be there.But if we punish a human for his deed are we punishing the devil inside him?Because then we make third assumption about human soul as a separate entity which can¬† be controlled by both God or Devil.
So finally its our soul which bears the brunt of acts done by god/devil.

People say god is omnipresent..then why cant it stop child abuses,bombblast in its own place of worship like temples or mosques?

If we die wat happens to us?our life? our so called soul?
When some one dies ..how we the living¬†ones can¬†presume about where¬†the deadmans¬†soul is heading for?bcos we can never have a clue about wat happens after death.But then why do we try to do things which will land us somewhere about which we dont know if anyone’s been there.Even if we assume that life exists even after death..then too how can we be sure to look back at our life after our death?

Either god has ownership of everything we see around us living or non living or it’s playing a partial role.

Assumption 1:God has ownership of everything we see around us living or non living.

why did god created 1000 of species from small micro-organisms to the Blue Whale. wat’s his purpose in providing oxygen on earth atmosphere or are we customized to breath oxygen ?
Why only earth has life …If god wants he cud have created life on more than one planet..and if we be lucky..why not our neighbouring ones..how can he control the life of all living creature on planet earth?

Assumption 2:God has a partial role to play.
If such¬†were the case then we have darwin’s and many other theories about evolution, inception of universe which can be considered credible enough to an extent.But wat if someone argues like god just created initially and then left all otherthings on themselves.Means partial support to ones life.Partial role in the universe.He doesn’t cares about the no of trees,grass ..flowers,insects,animals..but only about humans.

I have talked a lot..i knw too much of stress can result in such kind of thinking..I need a break!!!

Third Division merits a cry

The following post is not to justify reservation or start a debate again  but its kind of a counter argument and some  cynical facts ; just to share some knowledge with you guys.

Lets start with a real story.

It was around 1856 when the Madras College came into being. But, from the start, it faced a peculiar problem – the college building had come up with all other infrastructural facilities, and professors from England, but not enough students to make the college viable.
India has a big pool of historians who know every detail of the modern history, and many have mastered even the world history. What they know not, or don’t like to know, is the story of the College, and the history of modern education. They took no pains in explaining as why the College had shortage of students, and how that problem was to be resolved. They would also not tell as to when, why and for whom was Third Class considered as pass.
 
Till the Madras college came into being some where in 1850s, the pass marks required at Intermediate level was a minimum of 40 per cent, and First and Second were the only divisions. 
 
On the insistence of the Indians (read Brahmans), the pass percentage requirement was brought down to 33 per cent, and Third Division introduced. The College soon got enough students to justify its existence. By all accounts, this was the first victory the merit lobby had won in the past one millennium. We can understand, and sympathise with them.
 
As said by an author:

“While I have begun my research in procuring those crucial documents from archives, the Report of the Indian Universities Commission (1902) gives an idea. While discussing the results of the Matriculation examination for the year 1901, the report (page 45) says: “We were told that at Calcutta 1,400 more candidates would have failed had the standard in English been 40 percent of the marks instead of 33 per cent.”¬†
 
Many a merit theorists cite failure rate of Dalit/Adivasi students at Medical/Engineering/Management Colleges, which is often less than a percent, as a reason to scrap reservations. 
The meritorious historians however, would not tell the failure rate of their own people. According to Progress of Education in India (1922-1927), Vol. 1, Page 40, the failure rate of students in MBBS stood at 47 per cent, and in Engineering, at 34 per cent.
 
They would also not tell us as how during 1860s’, their ancestors were afraid of taking science and mathematics as subjects of studies, and were in fact, bribed to study sciences and medicine. Despite huge failure rates, the British government continued promoting science education amongst them.
 
Despite being victims of social segregation, and economic deprivation, and as the newest entrant in the world of learning, Dalit/Adivasis never demanded bringing down pass marks to, say, 20 per cent? 
Did Dalits/Adivasis demand adding a Fourth division?
Or, did Dalits/Adivasis demand any reservation in examination for getting degrees?
 
What all Dalits have insisted is reservation during admissions, and many of them do better than those students who had higher percentage of marks at the time of admissions.what difference it would make between 70 per cent and 90 per cent at plus two level, or similar situation in an entrance test.
Can any one say with certainty that the 70 per cent mark sheet holder is superior to the 50 per cent mark sheet holder in intelligence?  
Can any one say with certainty that those who pass with first class are necessarily better than the second class degree holders at work places?
So in short when¬† our grandparents(not dalits) were struggling from maths and science and were getting passed¬† with atleast 33 percent and they made up build the nation (note the dalits were out of sight)the britisher’s no matter wat gave them education and brought them up. So can one say why did they struggled?Bco’s if u pull out a child from slum and start teaching him maths and science ,IN GENERAL he will struggle and not score 90% or so.So u r grandparents struggled so u r comfortable now.¬†
