    Dharma is the cure for all grief.

    Practice Dharmic lifestyle to help with managing worldly grief.

    Believe in the Gods and karma

    सर्वधर्मान्परित्यज्य मामेकं शरणं व्रज।

    अहं त्वा सर्वपापेभ्यो मोक्षयिष्यामि मा शुचः।।

    Lockdown thoughts – Day 12 

    Lessons learnt in this lockdown – Part 1

    1. World is not prepared for biological warfare
    2. People fear for economy collapse more then their own life
    3. We are not capable to cope with sudden changes in life
    4. Morals and ethics are tested in difficult times, and we aren’t ready for those tests
    5. We can survive without junk food for quite long time.
    6. Maintaining hygiene and cleanliness should be the basic foundation of every civilized society
    7. If given a free hand, people prefer spreading chaos instead of peace
    8. Internet and social media can be terribly boring if used for long time. Their algorithms are designed to show what they want to show you and not what you want to see
    9. We can also stay away from TV and feel nothing bad about oneself
    10. Efficiency of Work from home is nonsense if done for more then three days. An office is supposed to be a place where we work and that is why it is an office, don’t expect quality work if it’s wfh
    11. People will stay in your contact only if you are on their priority or usefulness list. Nobody cares for you unless you are a celebrity, a vip or just dead.
    12. We must fear the powers of nature. Nature does not owe anything to humans so our destruction will not affect nature and other living organisms anything

    The lockdown of India. 

    I can’t help but think – is this lock down happening for real, just losing my sleep, Damm just two weeks ago we were all having quite normal life doing our daily routine and suddenly something happens and we are all forced to take drastic steps. Maybe I am ranting because I was never in such kind of situation where I cant go out, can’t work in office – things that were so much part of me, and it’s not me, it’s happening to everyone around me.

    Life is just freaking strange.

    This is just the start of 21 day lockdown. Good God knows what’s happening next.

    It has been a long time 

    Its almost an year i last logged in and wrote a blog post. So many significant things happened in the last year..and this year. Life is getting more and more busy and finding time for pursing hobbies, passion and art is getting harder and harder. Its almost a luxury these days. Right now its diwali time and i just found a quiet corner of my home and all thoughts waiting to get poured on paper or blog from last year/month/week have gathered up..just dont know from where to start…

    Ok..let me start by wishing you all a happy diwali. May you have awesome time and great fun ahead. Not preaching you of stopping use of fireworks or any moral policing..but sure to say that we must do and enjoy stuff with caution and moderation, self moderation to be precise. Too much of anything is not good 🙂

    Coming back to blog posts – sure theres pretty much eventful stuff happening..be it in politics or be it in technology. I am no expert in social science or politics but technology..yes..i can understand a bit of it more then average person..so expect future posts to be technoiillogy related.

    I guess this much is enough for now. Hope i write the next blog post soon 🙂

    Till then – be good. be happy. be awesome.

    My encounters with ingress 


    As part of resistance, I played ingress, an augmented reality game created by niantic labs, part of Google.

    This game is quite interesting and it has added an alien storyline with xm, portals, resonators etc  to keep players glued on.

    This is the future of RPG. The environment will be your own locality, your opposition will be real people..

    Actually, this game is part of Googles ambitious data capturing and mining project that will help it to gain location information about businesses , points of interests that is otherwise hard to find using satellites.

    of free speech and bans 

    (PS – this post is not about a specific government or ideology or community, but a brief attempt to summarize what overall is happening is right or wrong) Technology is static concept..unable to move, unable to interact unless the dynamic concept of its users get involved in it.

    Twitter, Facebook are good technologies meant to create digital connection and interactions between people who are otherwise hard to meet in real world.

    So far it is good.

    But from past few months, things are getting complex for Indian government and Indian netizans. There have been specific cases where Indian government has urged social networks to monitor disturbing content being uploaded on sites. Here disturbing content means anything picture, post that contains offensive material to either disrupt social harmony (do we have it?)  or directly the government.

    In unofficial way, Indian government is telling social networks to remove anything that it deems to believe to be offensive and can cause damage to governments image in peoples mind or worldwide.

    Perfect step taken by Indian government..except that it is totally nonsense and wrong.

    Some genius elements in Indian government totally fail to understand that they are playing a fools game by banning technology and curbing free speech ( which in unofficially non existent in today’s Indian society ), why cant they realize that instead of banning entire sites, or banning sms..they should target specific groups that are misusing technology to disrupt government functioning..

    And this is where government fails miserably. There is no way government has any kind of system to monitor users..no intelligence can provide them information..or even if intelligence provides information, the government is rarely seen to act promptly on this..yesterday sushil kumar shinderevealed that home ministry had warned state government of possible riots in mumbai..as usual, state government waited till few crores of property was damaged and people on twitter got enough material to be angry for weeks..

    Frankly..what is twitter ? It is just a microblogging site that allows people to post 140 character updates, allows people to follow, block, RT each other..thats all. This is static or fixed functionality of twitter. What probably inflammatory on it is the people who are using or misusing it for their purpose. this is the dynamic part of social network which needs attention

    And just to prove me wrong..police, ie a government body has decided to target people and arrest them and remove their websites and content. Police have arrested Aseem Trivedi who was associated with IAC in their recent tussle with GOI..This linkwill provide more information..and the charges put against him are quite serious for anyone.

    Is this the beginning of the end? Or a new beginning where all our probable fears will be proved to be true? What chaos and what challenges lies ahead?

    Time will tell..

    Why I quit Facebook – NYPOST.com 

    social networks are publicizing personal emotions and creating a kind of vacuum that literally is sucking everything you have got and showing to to public. and worse, you are appreciating this fact.

    already we have got huge information overload. not sure where facebook will lead us. in India, Orkut was actively used in 2005-08..facebook killed it. Now who will kill +facebook in what way remains to be seen.

    a virtual life 

    These days we have got two social lives. One in real world and other in virtual world of social networks like Facebook and/or  Twitter.

    I was reading an article of why Facebook causes a new stress on users. http://www.opposingviews.com/i/new-report-facebook-causes-stress-depression-anxiety  and http://www.switched.com/2011/02/16/facebook-causes-stress-anxiety-hooks-us-anyway/

    An important finding from one of the posts is

    Charles speculated that many users may feel anxious because of the site’s intrinsically self-centered structure. “It’s like being a mini news channel about yourself. The more people you have the more you feel there is an audience there,” Charles told the BBC. “You are almost a mini celebrity and the bigger the audience the more pressure you feel to produce something about yourself.”

    In short, Facebook tries to create a virtual but fake celebrity out of users, whatever might their real life be. By including photos, videos, quotes, events, Facebook is  like more of someone PRO promoting your personal life..publishing your details to world.

    But in the end, we should always remember that Facebook is a virtual world. Whenever you log into Facebook, you invest time, bandwidth and personal data in it..which is obviously not free. Remember not to get carried away by frenzy of getting a ‘celeb’ status. It is very easy on Facebook to get influenced by someone more elite then you and you can waste lot of positive energy attempting to be like them.

    I found out some old tips that will help you to stay updated with everyone without getting bogged down by all the information Facebook hurls at you.

    1. RSS feeds – If you want to find out latest information about a product, technology, or anything, you just need to subscribe to their RSS feeds. A good thing about these feeds is that most of sites dont have ads in them, thus providing you with clutterless information. However, it might not take too long before companies bombard you with ads in RSS feeds

    2. Email – Email is the reason why internet became popular. IM or real time communication is taking fight against email, but there is no substitute for emails as yet. Answering emails is more easy and more natural then replying to real time IM…not only emails allow you to think before answering, it is also more productive due to push mail services that are available on handsets, computers etc.

    3. Be social in real life – It takes nothing extra to be nice with people..meet people. Maintain good relations with them. If you ever get into trouble, the real people you know will be the first to help you out.  Speaking and conversing with people  helps better then posting fancy updates.

    4. Facebook is not the ultimate goal – Facebook is just another way to share things, its not the ultimate communication or the end point of what communication will be like. As we are evolving, we might have advanced tools at our disposal.

        yeah. everything can be sorted out, but an individual needs to know how much stress to bear and how much to keep at bay.

            as a technology user and creator, facebook is quite marvelous in terms of accessibility, scalability and concept.

            but how long will it grow selling users data to partners? at some point it will reach saturation point and this juggernaut will stop rolling. we will go back to days where mobile phone will be used as a mobile phone to call people and send sms.

            it will take approx 8 years more and we will go back to normal life we had before 2005. a life before GPRS, broadband, blogs etc went mainstream.

      I am reading the Emperor of Maladies-just started actually, and have read about 50 pg only so far. So far the book has no reference to the ancient indian texts and curiosity about Ancient Indian comments or finding lead me (thanks to google) to your blog.
      Then like other netizens i got diverted to reading your page on ancient vedic mantra that heal and cure.

      Needless to mention, i am suitably intrigued by your views, and range of topics you are covering in these articles…

      i will visit this again surely.,, inshallah..! our attention span is like a 2 yr olds these days .. as i write this vijay mallya’s assets are flashed on tv and the startling (well not so startling) fact is announced that his total debt to banks thru 6 of his companies is a whopping 14000 cr..
      for a rich beyond words man, with 26 properties, a luxury mall, 200 horses, and 16 vintage cars … the king of goodtimes will go down in debt may be. but at the same time, i worry for the PSU bankers who financed such ventures, coz the witch hunting for them would be terrible…

      anyway the mind is a potpourrie of millions of thoughts and so it flitted from the treatiseon cancer to our ancient indian scriptures, to power of yagna, to reading about your cheerful profile …….and then thanks to the audio-visual stimulant of tv- to mr mallya!!! au revoir…

    Why Open Source Linux Desktop is practically a fail 

    I met a group of people and we had to discuss on open source. I began as usual – Stop using proprietary Windows. Stop stealing software. Embrace Linux, it helps you (after that I told them several examples of how commercial companies are benefiting from open source technologies. All the case studies and examples were stolen from net and distro sites)In that interaction, I rediscovered some facts –

    1. In this social media age, no one cares for the tool but for the work. It dosent make a difference whether a software is free or not; as long as it dosent cost a penny. The end result matters, not the way how you do it.

    2. Piracy isent openly encouraged, but its the least thing cared about.

    3. Commercial Linux distro owners need to have a higher marketing budget then the funds needed to develop the core software. To make this thing works, a community based, unstable software having latest versions is given out free. Tweakers use it and report the bugs, fix things, enhance it and pass it back. This stable software is then inducted into stable desktop and sold as a commercial product. Red Hat has been doing it since 2003 and perheps this is what makes Red Hat to top linux distro list.

    4. People like to use GNU/Linux on servers but they are reluctant to pay a price for getting a software. However, they do spend on training users.

    5. Some distros like Ubuntu are absolutely hell bent on mimicking Windows way of functionality and seriously, its the first instance in 7 years where I have seen a Linux distro crawling on desktop, and well, crashing it..!! Their latest version is hopeless..!

    At the end.

    Open Source is very good sounding concept but a newcomer finds it extremely hard to earn something real fast as compared to those using non open source. You need to have a sure backup plan if Open Source based concept back fires.

    Preaching of the theorotical Open Source concepts like – Free Software, Libre, Open ness etc is all crap, people start yawning after hearing this nonsense for more then 3 minutes. And this is what the Open Source Evangelists do..and make sure people run away from it as far as possible ! People have got real FUD in using open source software, we cant cant claim all FUD’s are artificial or unreal.

    But all is not bad. I would recommend that every newcomer who wants to develop apps in GNU/Linux or wants to work as a network administrator should start using Red Hat software (FC and CentOS). This is true for Indian public, at other places, YMMV. The other prominent players in commercial Linux market are – Suse and Ubuntu. Try this once you feel Red Hat is letting you down.

    The title of this post is somewhat wrong, but I couldent find one better.

      Perhaps a better way is to show them how robust and how fast our Linux systems are. Whenever I even mention how much fun I’m having with Linux to my Windows and Mac friends, they get angry. One reason is that they’re paying $300+ dollars to be held captive by proprietary, corporate software, and the last thing they want to admit is that they’re wrong.

      But while the last ten years have been good for Apple users, they’re now discovering how expensive it is to compute on increasingly closed systems. As for Microsoft, the last decade has been one nightmare after another. Since switching to Linux in 2006, I haven’t looked back.

        Globalization is bringing a lot of money and we are seeing average salaries go up. Now many people can afford to purchase expansive proprietary software, infact i know some people who flaunt expensive OS as a status symbol..!!

    Tags: , The milkman story   

    Some freak economics a milkman taught me 

    Economics is a very facinating mix of theorotical science and practical art of managing money. Apart from spelling the word economics right, theres very little contribution to world economics from my side..

    until now..

    Few days ago, one interesting bill was attached to our common notepad – It was the milkman bill..Out of utter curiosity, I looked at it and was staggered..!! It read that I had to pay almost 1000/- to the milk man, and the service charges were extra. Service charges in this case was the salary given to the milk delivering boy and some supply chain management costs..

    I just calculated – The milkman gets approx 1000 rupees from my house. He delivers milk to adjoining 50 homes. On an average, a family needs 1 litre of milk everyday, and in Pune, the well known brand costs around 32 rupees a litre. So, in all, it works about 30×32 = Rs 960/- per home. Multiply it with 50 families, and the monthly income of the milkman is – 960×50 = 48000..!! The milkman automatically gets a decent discount from the milk supplier since he purchases them in bulk. The other cost is that of the milkboy who delivers those bags early in the morning..I am not sure how much salary he will fetch, lets assume he gets 2500/- pm. Most of the time that boy needs to invest 2 hours per morning and then continue study or any other activity. That leaves Mr Milkman the amount of almost  47000/- pm. Add to it there is no known and official service tax on doing this.Wow..aint that awesome? Add to it that our milkman does work in a bank apart from delivering milk, so this salary is extra to him…


    I read in papers that many freshers in engineering arent getting jobs and even if they land on one, they have to work as a trainee for well over 1.5 years till they start getting the standard salary. Add to it the cutting edge training costs these engineers invest in.

    From the facts based above, I can safely say that I want to be a Milkman…instead of slogging in front of the computer writing cryptic and buggy software, its better I start something like this..!! Till few years ago, milk delivery man was just another poor mans job..today its turned to be a number one earning service with comparative less stress etc. Of course, even this field might have its own unknown risks, losses, and all that stuff, but did anyone ever look at the strange economy behind the scene??

    I dont know..

    PS  – All figures are indicative, your milage may vary. I am an ignorant and untrained economist, so please forgive me if I make mistakes.. 😉

    • Prasad Kulkarni 9:25 am on September 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Harshad, no doubt that Milkmen are milking money like anything. But is that the only thing attached to it?

      A milkman needs to buy a cow or buffalo. A price which will break even after 2-3 months. Adding to that he needs to develop the customer base which needs lot of marketing cost (though not much considering the company’s marketing cost).

      Also, he needs to buy food for those cows and buffaloes. That will also get subtracted from his earnings. He needs to buy shampoos and soaps for washing those cattle. If the cattle get sick he needs to take them to veterinary doctor adding to the total expenditure and subtracting from the earnings.

      This is not it, he needs to build a shed for them, keep the surrounding clean, milk the cattle (which is in fact the tough job, to milk the cattle).

      If you calculate all these things you will get very restricted surplus. This all accounts for almost Rs. 10,000 monthly (some pluses or some minuses) so what he gets ultimately in hand is around Rs. 38,000.

      But even then the earnings or profit he makes is hefty. But the hard work it needs to carry all these operations is very much. And if you really want to get into this business, you will not be able to perform all these tasks and for that you will have to hire someone who will share your profit.

      And the main thing is this job or business is unstable and volatile. Because if you under-perform (that means if you don’t produce good quality of milk) the house where you are serving will ask you to stop serving them.

      Now considering all these things, you tell me how good this job is.

    • Harshad Joshi 11:00 am on September 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply


      Well, you are partially right in this case.

      The milkman I am talking about dosent maintain cows/buffaloes or goats.

      Instead he maintains a heavy duty refridgerator and purchases milk packets in bulk from Chitale, who in turn maintain the milk supply chain and milk producing machinary.

      Obviously I dont want to be Chitale, as its a very heavy invested business..

      I want to be the local milk man who maintains an important position in milk supply chain, and he is the one who comes in direct contact with end customers.

      The profits or expenditures I mentioned are that of the local milkman and not of Chitale or Katraj or Amul..

    • Prasad Kulkarni 2:40 pm on September 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      OK, but still the profits you have mentioned have some sharing components. The bill of electricity he will get by using Fridge. Then there are other factors like, if he owns a place then fine, but if doesn’t own then the rent is added thing.

      But he still manages to milk hefty profits.

    • Harshad Joshi 2:48 pm on September 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply


      Bang on..thats what I am trying ot convey that the milkaman is earning more taxfree profits we can ever imagine..

      Add to the fact that no one ever asks the milkman for discount in milk bottle, say a rupee less, say Rs 31. We should all ask for discount, coz as it is we are going to purchase a guranteed 30 milkbottles from him, arent we supposed to get something in return??

      Shit, this is very dirty politics played all around..! We are wasting money..!

      Save money.

    • subbu 7:47 pm on December 29, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      The MilkMan gets his milk from another supplier. So doesn’t it mean he spends among the 48000 you had mentioned to procure that milk?

      So its not as much profit as it may seem. Even if he gets the milk at 3/4 of its price he is left with 12000 for operations cost. Whatever is leftover of that is his profit.

      I am new to this industry. I only started weeks ago and I can tell you that this is a rewarding business for two reasons; it can be and is for me connected to the sustainable agriculture movement today, and second reason; it is lucrative if you want to sell and market and are good at it. I happen to live in one of the most lucrative counties in the USA. And I project that this business first year with only myself can earn $220,000. That is within a 15 mile radius and with 1-2 towns. I plan to move onto the other towns in my county then into Manhattan, New York. we will train other people to be their own distributors. The Milkman Company will take care of marketing, some of the sales jobs, buying power, product knowledge, and other office administrations.

      Watch for us in the industry. and watch for our Milkman delivery trucks. These same opportunities can exist for entrepreneurs in other regions of the State, the USA, and globally.

      Thank you.

    Force India F1 team wins..Great going India.. 

    Force India F1 racing car, 2009 (c) Vijay Mallya and India.

    Thats the 2009 Force India F1 racing car that has done many Indian fans proud when Giancarlo Fisichella secured 8 points in the 2009 Belgian GP. I dreamed of this day since 2008 ever since Vijay Mallya brought the former Jordan-Midland team from Spyker.

    A great moment back here for all fans in India. Vijay Mallya rocks. He’s a true passionate businessman who knows how to pull out things…great going. Best of Luck to everyone at Force India F1 team.

    8th Sept 2009.

    PS – This post was written hurridly in a moment of ecstacy and happiness where I praised Vijay Mallya, FI and F1, just like every other Indian F1 fan.

    The end brings a new beginning 

    The end was actually hiding a new beginning in its sphere;

    darkness became the light,

    the wind turned into the smell of fear…

    2008 will end soon. Thank you to everyone who supported me. I had promised, even if this blog might stop for a while, the journey still continues…Some of you mailed me, some of you called me, I thank you. I wont pretend, but your words helped me a lot..

    I cannot make you wait for too long..

    You can now find me on Twitter – http://twitter.com/sevenlives

    House on a tree..the zen way

    This is a new venture by me into realms of unknown. I have tried to be honest while writing the Haiku, an art that is obscure, difficult to master, yet at the same time offers simple advice to the reader, the Zen way. At the same time, you can find humour, sarcasism, philosophy, rhythm a blend of everything…As a kid, I read a lot of Aesops Fables, Panchatantra, Indian legends, so expect to find the wise sages, the lonely Hermits, the houseless woods, speaking tigers, poisonous snakes, dangerous scorpions, smiling babies, everything that we encounter in our dreams and real life 🙂 .Sometimes you might not actually feel like reading a stereotype Haiku, but i have tried to preserve the ‘3 line rule’ , short is sweet..It offers me several advantages –

    1. It requires less time to write

    2. It helps to deliver the right message in right time

    3. Offers you lot of flexibility in reading, you dont need to be holed up forever in front of pc all the time..

    What more I can say now? Its time you can go and read it. Mind you, its Twitter, microblogging has got some limitations, the Haikus I wrote still maintain a rough edge, but I havent tried to hide the naiveness, maybe it will help to end the learning phase a little more fast..Twitter cannot substitute WordPress, but for the timebeing, it serves well..

    This is the sample of what you can expect

    People understand Tao

    People understand Zen

    Lying is a bad habit..

    This Haiku is obviously meant to target all marketting mongers. They are all of the same catagory, they try to sell you anything making it appear useful, however you bring it, you realize, its a waste of resources. We all need to be careful. Dont invest into something that appears glamorous, glosy. Too much of shine can be harmful. Your money/time/resources are precious, use them wisely and dont succumb to any pressure. In todays age, where recession looms ahead, job cuts are round the corner, we need to make sure we act wisely.


    Peace and goodwill

    they are everlasting desires

    Weak people have got no options…

    Todays tough age demands more out of us. No one can afford to be weak and request help all the time. Its apparant that a weakling is a burdan in any society. Unless you are strong, you are firm, you will always stay at the mercy of others, thus making your life miserable and weak. A weak person always desires peaec, but he is unable to fight for it, thus living forever in grief..A lesson we learn from Indias IT sectors debacle – Depend on US for yor jobs, you will always be at the perils of anti outsourcing voices. Obama isent a good man who will work in your favour, making life easy for you. The time isent the same now. Its time to get tough and act accordingly..Develop your own technology and then sell it. Sooner or later the world will be at your feet.

    Ok, thats enough for now.

    With all your blessings and compliments,

    I will be there again…

    See you on Twitter.

      “A weak person always desires peaec, but he is unable to fight for it, thus living forever in grief.”

      Well said!
      I am totally in agreement with above.
      Besides IT, we in the engineering industry are also experiencing slow down . The Infrastructure business which was the flag ship business group of the company, is lying low. Customer who have once placed the orders, are not in position to take deliveries due to cash crunch. Infrastructure business in mostly dependent upon the World Bank Finance . When this source dries down, the going gets tough.

      With all the Odds of 26/11 reminds me of this poem:-

      Still I Rise —–

      You may write me down in history
      With your bitter, twisted lies,
      You may trod me in the very dirt
      But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

      Does my sassiness upset you?
      Why are you beset with gloom?
      ‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
      Pumping in my living room.

      Just like moons and like suns,
      With the certainty of tides,
      Just like hopes springing high,
      Still I’ll rise.

      Did you want to see me broken?
      Bowed head and lowered eyes?
      Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
      Weakened by my soulful cries.

      Does my haughtiness offend you?
      Don’t you take it awful hard
      ‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
      Diggin’ in my own back yard.

      You may shoot me with your words,
      You may cut me with your eyes,
      You may kill me with your hatefulness,
      But still, like air, I’ll rise.

      Does my sexiness upset you?
      Does it come as a surprise
      That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
      At the meeting of my thighs?

      Out of the huts of history’s shame
      I rise
      Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
      I rise
      I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
      Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
      Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
      I rise
      Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
      I rise
      Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
      I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
      I rise
      I rise
      I rise.

      Wish you all happy new year…

    Slowly walking out… 


    goodbye..Good Bye....


    Hi everyone.

    Whether you have come here by chance, hunting for something you need, or maybe Google/Yahoo! guided you here, or someone recommend you to visit this tiny blog, I want to thank you for visiting.

    I think the time is coming, slowly but surely and I am honestly losing my motivation to write. I think I should stop this blog. I met many wonderful people througout these 2 years. I am thankful to them for all the support they gave me. This decision isent going to be very easy for me, but sometimes we have to make a tough mind and act accordingly.  

     Live life the way it should be. In your day to day interactions, you will come across many experiences, many people. Some of them give you moments to cherish about, some you may like to forget. Whatever the case might be, one mantra to make your life little more better. Be yourself, dont hide. Just believe in destiny, dont care what it says. Just believe in destiny. Love and trust atleast one person and make sure you both stay togather. Learn to forgive the people who mange to hurt you. Many of them do it unknowingly. Just identfy them. And importantly – People around you are like mirrors. They reflect to you what you actually are. If you are one of those actors loving to decieve people, automatically, the people closer to you are the same. If you are a kind hearted person, you will always have company of those people who need you most and you will also have collegues similar to you. 

    I could write more, but let some things be secret. You know it. 

    PS – If I regain my motivation, I defiantely will be back…but again, no gurantees. 


    Till then, 


    Harshad Joshi.

    आता आठवताहेत.. 

    आता अनोळखी होऊन गेलो आहोत आपण…. आता आहेत त्या फक्त आठवणी..

    आधी.. सकाळी उठल्यावर पहिला फोन तुला.. जेवायच्या वेळेस फोन.. सन्ध्याकाळी फोन.. झोपण्यआधी फोन..
    आता.. तुझ्याशी फोन वर बोलुन ८ महिने झाले.. ते हि बळजबरीचे बोलण..

    तेव्हा.. रोज chatting.. खूप busy असलेल्या दिवशी सुद्धा missed call देवून.. वेळ ठरवून chatting..
    आता.. शेवटचा mail कधी आला तुझा ते सुद्धा आठवत नाहिए..
    आणि chatting?? बोलणच खुण्टलय तर कसल chatting??!!??

    काय म्हणायच त्याला? जे पुर्वी होत? प्रेम? नाहिच.. अस विसरत का कोणी प्रेम? ती होती एक चूक.. तू केलेली, आणि तुझ्या प्रेमाखातर मी ही केलेली..

    “मी तुझ्याशी बोलल्याशिवाय नाही राहू शकत ग.. ”
    “तुझा mail आला ना कि एकदम माझे डोले लकाकतात.. i feel much better..i donno why पण एकदम relaxed वाटत.. कितीही रुसलीस ना तरी mail करत जा.. ”
    “plz चिडू नकोस ग.. बोल ना ग plzzz..”

    गेल ते सगळ..
    आता उरल्या त्या सगळ्याच्या आठवणी आणि.. आणि हे..

    “i just dont love u.. that was my mistake.. now will u plz stop ths and live ur life n let me live mine..”

    Life is like that, and no matter how brave I pretend to be sometimes, some things really left an indelible mark on me, although it was nothing earth breaking or nerve shatttering thing, maybe I was a bit changed.

    Tip – I want to know who reads this post and finds it relevant.

    Moral of the story – This post is dedicated to a wide spread misuse of chatting and instant messaging. I wish I post the real dialog I had, but today, I do not have any kind of feelings left with me, Life has taken a new turn and all the old griefs are dead… 🙂 For some strange reasons unknown to me, I have seen people behave like fools and they reason it for love, baah..There are very important things in life, and I do not think that a so called love is one of them..

    I think this is the last post having a tag ‘Love’ on this little blog. 😀

    Live in relationship is fine with Maharashtra Government 


    The Maharashtra Government headed by Congressman Vilasrao Deshmukh and his ministers have okayed live in relationship..Live in relationship means people of opposite sex can have a relation without legal binding like marriage..

    Live in relationship might be common or acceptable in western countries, but by watching numerous Hindi films, thsi is what I have a concept of what might be called a bollywood lifestyle.

    1. Both, the girl and boy live in a seperate house, no parents to pester or poke their nose in their affairs..

    2. They can have sex anytime, in any way, and usually the girl dosent want to get pregnant, but unfortunately, she does become pregnant..

    3. Horrified, the guy leaves her and the poor girl, in tears, determines to raise the child..She cares a damm about others..

    4. Finally, a good common friend of the guy and gurl playes the role of Guardian Angel and decides to bring them togather..which is difficult..

    5. However, Mr Angel succeeds in bringing them togather, and everyones happy…


    Hmm, this is perheps a little bit of a Bollywood Hindi film starring Saif Ali Khan and Preity Zinta. I found this film undoubtedly the most ridiculous thing i had ever seen, except of couple of Preity-Saif kisses(Wanted to see something more, Censor Board in India is dangerously strict..). But is this what the government wants in Maharashtra??

    Actually, there are many people supporting age old marriage style and live in relations..

    I am single and I have got no gurl friend, I will oppose it. If I had my girlfriend with me, I would have strongly welcomed it. I know, its double crossing, but this is what is life all about..India is widely known as a country with strong moral values and traditional integrity. Perhaps, that’s why bold exhibitions of romance go for a toss in such a typical society, least being something like live-in-relationships in India. The union of a man and a woman is considered as one of the most sacred acts in this country. No wonder, living together before marriage is a sour dampener for the staunch ethic upholders. However, the new millennium has ushered in great changes even within the country that has forever been enshrouded in a blanket of rich culture and heritage.

    To be continued…

      But in case the original boy with whom she was living earlier comes back who has the right to the child? Complications could arise if the person later marries somebody and this girl cannot get any compensation.

      its a matter of complete personal and individual choice. i dont see anything wrong or ridiculous or shameful in it. if the guy and the girl are adults, and are mature enough to take their decisions wisely knowing all the pros and the cons of the relationship then no one has the right to interfere or oppose their relationship. i have seen, read, heard people opposing it in the name of indian culture, ethics etc. which according to me is not an appropriate reason to object because then there are hundred thousands of things to object in the name of culture and ethics… our culture says “atithi devo bhava” which means that “our guest is like our god” but tourist women from the other countries are raped, duped and kidnapped! our ethics dont allow communalism but still every third day a temple or a church is demolished. our culture never allowed ill treatment of women but still women are considered just a sexual toy or birth giving machine! our culture doesnt allow child labour, corruption, child marriage and so many other things. all i would say is that be human, try and eradicate these black spots of our culture n our country and live in relationships wont harm our country or the culture or the ethics. live ans let live

      I second Harman’s view….

      Honestly speaking, there are enough BASIC problems in India to take care of, rather than hampering personal freedom… and Obviously, couples deciding to live-in have enough brains to use contraceptive (condoms and Pills) while they are together… Unwanted pregnancies, one of major issues raised by people, don’t happen while couple live-in.. it happens when you forget contraception in the heat of passion… 😛

      I just wonder, how come, Our Dear MNS chief hasn’t spoken about evils of live-in as its against Indian or rather maharashtrian culture…. Oh! i forgot, he’s busy grounding Jet Flights… who is already fighting the economic crunch!!

      From thousands of years india has reflected to whole world its moral values and strong traditions which actually differs the india from other countries. I strongly oppose the views of harman and rashmi, as they have left the great indian culture.
      it is not about getting bifurcated from the convention,but whether the particular bifurcation is correct with respect to all dimensions of life or not .today the youth (not all) have left the correct values of life, that is why they demand to have such kind of unethical relationships.in my view any work done by me which i can not share with my parents is the wrong. society (whether ancient or contemporary) has always tried to pump the populist,but bad traditons from any nook and corner, and that’s what they are doing in this case. in the name of so called “hamperring of freedom” they want to have sexual pleasures,those who can not go to red light areas or there ego confronts them actually evolved this methods of satisfying there sexual needs.

      i know one thing that live in relationships will never deter any events against women but will only degrade the society.

      I am not sure what the MH government has planned, but some people said that the government was trying to make a law which gives compensation to women in case her partner has abandoned her after a failed live in relationship. Its important to understand, that if a women gets pregnant in such a case, then who is liable to be called the father of that child? In a bid of saving grace, the government perheps wants to have a law that might help in prevention of woman exploitation in live-in relationships..Speaking in terms of legal practices, how to define what a live-in relation is?? Who will decide that its actually a live-in relation?? Is it enough that one guy and one girl stay together in one flat, and then without any paperwork or bond, its a legal live-in relationship? Or you need to have sex at least once so as to conform it as legal? What?? The complexities of this bill are more then what we can think…

      I wonder, how many people actually opt for a ‘without marriage’, ‘without compulsion’ lifestyle in India? Very few to be precise..

      There was no immediate need of introducing this bill as ther are so many other issues we are facing, like an economic meltdown in the making, poverty, high inflation rate, corruption, but politicos, who would prevent them from taking filmy hero steps?? Its said – ‘Prevention is better then cure’, why bothr preventing something thats higly unlikely to happen?? Maybe the govt thinks Live-in relationship is the next biggest problem looming ahead after the possible global economic meltdown…

      Mr. Pandey! You certainly are an “Idle” example of Indian Youth, who thinks visiting a prostitute and having unsafe sex is BETTER than having sex with a committed partner…!!


      Good!!! India certainly needs PROGRESSIVE thinking like yours in this Economic Crunch …!! Sigh!!

      Certainly, the Law is not as simple as it is made to sound!! Seemingly boom to the live-in female partner but nightmare for her boyfriend…. curse for a woman whose husband is having another live-in partner… This is certainly not the time to introduce it.. lets debate, talk, criticize, love, hate it…. introduction and passing will take years… may be when majority of our politicians will be of the next generation (age between 35-50)… not when majority of then are “senior citizens”

      I can’t believe some people are actually supporting this!

      We need to draw a line in this westernization wave. Since the ancient time, marriage has been regarded a sacred element in India and Hinduism.

      There is no credit in giving that up. The living together culture of the west has drove the divorce rate as close to as 50%. Indians take pride in having a strong & supporting family bond. Research has shown that kids that grow up with parents are more successful and confident than others.

      If not culture then at least for the sake of the next generation we should keep the marriage tradition strong.

      @Mr. Arpit Pandey,

      From thousands of years india has reflected to whole world its moral values and strong traditions which actually differs the india from other countries.

      Can you gimme ten examples of “moral values” which INDIA has reflected to the world, well I will give u some examples of “moral” values

      Throwing garbage on the road
      Jumping the red light and not following traffic disciplines
      Rape and eve teasing of women
      Inter-religion fights
      Fights related because of ones mother tongue

      in my view any work done by me which i can not share with my parents is the wrong.

      Each time you will have sex with your wife, are you going to “share” with you parents, if not then its unethical.

      in the name of so called “hamperring of freedom” they want to have sexual pleasures,those who can not go to red light areas or there ego confronts them actually evolved this methods of satisfying there sexual needs.

      So where and whats the problem in it. I think you are not getting an opportunity that why you are feeling so isolated.

      i second u. If a live-in-relationship goes wrong,anyone can simply walk outwithout much familial & no legal pressures.
      Many people strongly connoted it encourages sexual promiscuity & infidelity. It would be good to ask them, if the sense of responsibility in an Indian marriage includes sexual responsibility.
      Another prevelant belief of live-in-relationships fostering insecurity,particularly in women. One wonders if the most socially accepted ideas in India regarding women make them feel secure in any manner. The idea of women’s security itself is gendered.

      India has strongest family system in the world, only because of its rich culture and traditions. In Indian culture, marriage binds man and woman together through out life. The marriage institution is connected with ethics, epics, morals and emotions etc. But the high-salaries, growth of liberty, women empowerment, domestic violence, dowry harrasments, extra-marital affairs, and disinterest towards relgious epics are increasing the divorce rates in India.

      As a result the youth are adapting Live in relationships. Infact, Live in relationship kills Indian rich culture and tradition. It is the high-tech adultery whch does not need any commitment and sacriment in Livein relationships. It is a conditional relationship which is free of religious rituals, ethics and morals. It is very fragile that it can break up at any point of time, even after having kids. The blood relations in it are uncertain. In western countries, there is no proper culture and family system and they change their spouses like changing clothes daily. I cannot appreciate MH government in its decision. If live-in-relationships are legalised, the marriage institution in india vanishes soon and India will go to dogs. If it is legalised, then public prostitution is no wrong.

      dear sir,

      There are lots of advantages and disadvantages of live in relation between man and woman.

      it is very true that a woman is always insecured this relationship,

      but at time,and certain situations live in relationship can help.

      The hindu culture which does not allow a widow or a seperated woman to remarry,in these situations either she is misled or misused by the society,at times they accept to become a call girl also.

      I feel its better to accept a live in relation than being a call girl.
      atleast she is with one person to take care off.

      live in relation may also help women who are not married, above middle age,lost time due to various difficulties and reasons of marriage of culture/religion/rituals/rasi/dosha etc.

      and women who need a male companion at later ages.because cannot help anyone but society will always like to pock their noses and interfere in others problems

    Happy Birthday Google.. 

    Google's 10th Birthday

    Google completes its 10 years, 28 September 1998 – 28 September 2008..


    Starting from what was called  as ‘Dont be Evil’, Google today is the world’s largest database holding tonnes of secrets about people, their habbits, their thinking, their culture et al..

    In the first 10 years, Google has introduced several user oriented web softwares that helped them remorph the IT industry..Initially, Google began its life as a simple web search engine no one could had imagined to be what is perheps an integral part of their computing experience. There are other players in this market, like MSN, Ask, the recent Cuil, but Google has outcasted them and I dont think there would be anything much left for anyone to try as far as Web search is concerned.


    Long live Google, and dont forget, the privacy bomb’s ticking.. 😉

    The LHC, CERN,the Earth,and me 

    The LHC or Large Hadron Collider was supposed to fire a huge beam smashing atoms, colliding quarks, and whatnot, that was capable of turning Earth into a black hole @ 1:30 PM IST.

    Its 2:08 PM IST, I am observing that I am alive, the people next to me are alive, the computers working properly, there is no power cut, the TV’s on, there has been no earth quake reported, my mobile network is operational, theres traffic on road..people are moving around, they seem perfectly all right ..All these things prove that Earth has been spared from becoming a black hole. I dont now if the scientists @ CERN got what they were finding, but I am pretty sure that the world wont end that easily, especially with me having a lot of desires left to be satisfied 😉

    Theres no प्रलय, heres no Doom’s day, theres no Apocalypse, Judgement Day has been postponed. 😛

    Rejoice Dudes, we have got yet another day to live..make the most out of it, who knows what those crazy scientist might be upto now..However, i cant help thinking. Bing Bang, Universe is great, but we have got so many problems like hunger, poverty, unemployment, racism, corruption, religious controversies, why cant someone try to solve them, I bet they are more challenging then Big Bang.. 😉

    Hey…to know what CERN’s to, watch this live webcast from this site.All I can see is few people walking here and there..

    Update on 10 Sept 9:30 PM IST

    This news of earth being turned into a black hole was potrayed so cinematically by some Indian news channels that one 16 year old girl in Indore commited suicide when she saw that the world was going to end soo..The Indian TV media once again proved they are the biggest assholes in some aspects..No maturity, no sense, no originality..Mongrels…Crap heded blistering barnacles..

      Hi Harshad,

      CERN did indeed switch on the LHC, but only to warm up the machines and do some preliminary tests. They haven’t even began colliding the atoms yet. The first collisions take place in the second week of October this year.

      If such a devestating cataclysm were to take place we wouldn’t know until 2012 when it reaches maximum performance and any hypothetical ‘mini black holes’ have had a chance to accrue and form a quasar inside the planet (which would be apocalyptic to say the least).

      Having said that, no one can say for certain exactly what will happen once the LHC is colliding beams in ernest. Even CERN themselves admit that they can’t predict exactly what will happen and what chain of events will transpire. That’s a tad worrying. After all, nothing of this scale has ever been tested. Until now anyway.

      There is a miniscule and remote chance that in four years, if Dr Otto Rossler and former nuclear physicist Walter Wagner are right, the earth will be experiencing some major negative changes. God forbid that happens.

      2012 is a significant year for many reasons, (see the Mayan Long Count Calander and the Grand Allignment). I just hope that the LHC doesn’t make it a tragic hat trick for us.

      Personally, I’m optimistic. The chance of tragedy is there. But it’s very small.

      I thought all they were doing this time was firing one beam, and the micro-black holes that will swallow the world (not) from colliding two beams aren’t due for a few weeks?

      I agree with you that why people, scientist, politicians run behind the “MRUGAJALA”?? As you rightly said, there are various issues like Hunger, Corruption, Racism, Poverty, Unemployment etc etc. Why can’t India and in turn World look for that. They are definitely challenging than Big Bang. No problem, World should go on exploring Earth, Universe and Environment but after it solves the problem within.

      There is just no chance at all that CERN destroys the world. See the safety reports in http://www.arxiv.org


      1) Mini black holes are quantum objects described by quantum gravity. Since we don’t know how to do quantum gravity we cannot calculate any probabilities (for creation, decay etc) except for the case that we use classical theories (general relativity). These give an absolutely negligible probability for a BH to be created. I wish that LHC creates one however. This way we might get a hint on how to construct quantum gravity.

      2) If you could stand next to a mini BH you would feel no gravitational force (its field is extremely weak on macroscopic scales).

      3) BH do not devour everything that stands in their way. They are black simply because if you cross the event horizon there is no possible way to get out. But in order to fall into a BH you need to have a trajectory that crosses its event horizon. If we replaced the sun with a BH nothing would happen. Well, there would be no light and planets would revolve at faster speeds (those closer to the BH would have complex rosette trajectories).

      the lhc at this point in time is a very bad idea, there are far to many unknowns.

      when they were testing the fist a-bomb they though it might light
      the atmosphere on fire, sure it may have not happened in the end but they had to do it because lives were at stake and they had to end a long drawn out war. failure was not an option!

      but there is no justifiable reason why we should chance fate a second time over such a small thing.

      at this point in history there are more important things, i feel they should postpone the testing for a decade or so and devote those $$$
      bones to some thing better like mining asteroids and or developing practical solutions for space flight.
      like idk a space shuttle the common man could afford to buy, maintain and operate.

      the simple fact of the matter is that these tests have no real world use/applications at the moment.
      more over we already have the scientific/technological capability of achieving such feat’s as space flight with out the lhc.

      to conclude my rant i ask what is the lhc going to do for me “the common man”? I’ll tell you, “possibly” kill me and every one else, and a whole lota nothing!

      and for what to satisfy the curiosity of some egg head whom does not care about my thoughts
      ideals and more over my genius!

      fool’s, I’ll bet if it was put to a world wide democratic vote today they would be shut down tomorrow!

      the end does not justify the means no manner how you dice it what so ever.

      (after all its not like the lhc is going any where;)

        I think Earth Defence Forces have detected an alien attack and hence they have designed a killer machine to prevent defeat in an inter galactic war…wow, we are now going to see star wars for real..

        LHC is the havoc machine, a weapon to be used in case of an alien invasion 😛

      i wonder what would happen if the lhc was fired up and then all the sudden the sun let out a giant solar flair?

      after all our sun has an solar cycle of about 11 years between its major amounts of solar activity.

      i remember back in 1999 and 2000 they were all worried over y2k and also over that nastier solar cycle thing.

      which may i add will be at its height on dec 21 2012.


      either way i think the test should be postponed until a time between our suns solar cycle.

      sure it would take them 15-20 more years or so to do all the tests they want to do but “safety first” that’s what i always say.

      as far as i have read the lhc only has a life expectancy of 10 years, during that time it will be upgraded once.

      but for them to do testing in 2009-2011 then stop for 5 years and then resume for 3-4 years, would be way more safer.

        Relax, enjoy life to the fullest till the last day comes. Trust me, the LHC will fail once again because no one knows how to operate it. The scientist are crazy people with lot of time and money to waste.

        PS – Get married *now* if you are single. Who knows if LHC disaster may take place, there will be mutations of all kinds.. 😉

      idk the main and only problem with the lhc that ppl should be worried about is the unknown side effects if such a device.

      no only to us but our solar system in general, it doesn’t take much research on the internet to find out that such things can go terribly wrong.

      although the lhc is only a 10 year project, the simple fact of the manner is that if such an device were in operation for say 40 years there is some where between a 40-75% chance of catastrophic failure resulting in alot of the side effect’s that many have dismissed as being false misinformation.

      be it mini black holes, strangelets, mono-polar particles, i would have to say they are the least of our worries.

      after all are we ready for the information and research that would be generated by the lhc, what are the consequences of this information?

      after the discovery of nuclear fission mankind had the ability to fully destroy its self, this in effect caused fear and panic and later led to the cold war, a struggle which led to the economic failure of communism in the ussr resulting in much poverty.

      with great power comes great responsibility, that being said what makes these scientists the right people for this task?

      what gives them the right to put our lives at stake even if the chances is only like .000000000000000000000000000001% especially when nobody can say for certain what will or wont happen.

      i dont wana go on spouting out all this doom’s day jargon and referring to prophecy but even though i dont believe in that crap that does not mean im not going to at least try to avoid such things.

      i think that those people responsible for the lhc are being very ignorant of peoples believes customs and ideals, if the lhc were built in canada here it would have been shut down already due to lobbying and petitioning, and more over for being a violation of the Canadian charter of rights and freedom’s (due in part to its timing in accordance with the dec 21 2012 thing).

      figure that, if i believed in the mayan religion and customs (ha minus the human sacrifice of course) according to the c c r f they would be violating my rights and i could sue them.

          well first of all i just don’t want some fool machine messing up the earths geomagnetic field or for that manner disrupting the sun or some stupid thing like that.

          it may be in France/Switzerland but it is still on earth.

          i more or less just dont want them to do testing during the sun’s solar maximum.


          aka 2011 and on to 2015 or so and from 2020 to 2025, if they could not mess around with it then that would just be swell.

          idk if it only effected them i wouldn’t care, i would happily go along with it until they killed them selves just so i could say i told you so.

          but this thing is so big that if some thing go’s wrong it wont only effect them, our collective asses are on the line.

          i think what will happen is a computational error due to emi/emp from a massive solar storm, this in turn will cause catastrophic failure.

              it wont be software , it will be a hardware thing.

              i’ll bet the entire facility is automated.

              every door every window and even down to the very relays and contractors they use to control the sophisticated equipment in the lhc.

              at that point it wont manner what operating system they use, in the end it will just be a simple error caused by the very thing that breathes life into our fair planet.

    BSNL to launch 3G in Pune 

    BSNL has planned to launch 3G in Pune, Maharashtra. BSNL is the state owned public limited company. Its the biggest POTS provider and it also provides cellular, wll and internet services. BSNL has planned to invest Rs 300 crore and initially, it will serve about 2000 BSNL customers. Later, in end 2008, they will expand it once the GOI finalizes the 3G deal. To use 3G, you will need to pay 725 per month..

    Q. What is 3G ?

    Ans. 3G is the third generation of mobile phone standards and technology, after 2G. It is based on the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) family of standards under the International Mobile Telecommunications programme, “IMT-2000“. 3G technologies enable network operators to offer users a wider range of more advanced services while achieving greater network capacity through improved spectral efficiency. Services include wide-area wireless voice telephony and broadband wireless data, all in a mobile environment.

    Unlike IEEE 802.11 networks, 3G networks are wide area cellular telephone networks which evolved to incorporate high-speed internet access and video telephony. IEEE 802.11 networks are short range, high-bandwidth networks primarily developed for data.


    The most significant feature of 3G mobile technology is that it supports greater numbers of voice and data customers — especially in urban areas — and higher data rates at lower incremental cost than 2G.

    By using the radio spectrum in bands identified, which is provided by the UTI for Third Generation IMT-2000 mobile services, it subsequently licensed to operators. 3G uses .6 MHz channel carrier width to deliver significantly higher data rates and increased capacity compared to 2G networks.

    The .5 MHz channel carrier provides optimum use of radio resources for operators who have been granted large, contiguous blocks of spectrum. On the other hand, it also helps to reduce the cost to 3G networks while being capable of providing extremely high-speed data transmission to users.

    It also allows the transmission of 384 kbit/s for mobile systems and 2 Mb/s for stationary systems. 3G users are expected to have greater capacity and better spectrum efficiency, which allows them to access global roaming between different 3G networks.


    Although 3G was successfully introduced to users in Europe, Asia, South America (Uruguay) and Africa, some issues are debated by 3G providers and users:

    • Expensive input fees for the 3G service licenses
    • Numerous differences in the licensing terms
    • Large amount of debt currently sustained by many telecommunication companies, which makes it a challenge to build the necessary infrastructure for 3G
    • Lack of member state support for financially troubled operators
    • Expense of 3G phones
    • Lack of buy-in by 2G mobile users for the new 3G wireless services
    • Lack of coverage, because it is still a new service
    • High prices of 3G mobile services in some countries, including Internet access (see flat rate)
    • Current lack of user need for 3G voice and data services in a hand-held device

    My concern

    • BSNL is not known to provide anything called as QoS. Infact, not a single telco or ISP in India ever promises to deliver services on minimum QoS. Even most of the consumers dont bother about QoS. Why this carelessness, I dunno..Astonishing to know that 3G can have upto 2Mbps top speed. BSNL actually provides 2 MB as an elite internet service and that too at a premium price, and they dont gurantee that the upload/download sped will be consistant. Call any of their technical teams, they have got an answer – The server through which you ar uploading might be having some problems..Gosh, I am experimenting on their unlimited plan, and all I can get is a paltry 30 kbps download under good conditions…Are they taking me on a ride?  Is this what they call broadband??
    • Right now, BSNL is promising video calling on 3G. The catch is that many existing customers dont have access to full fledged 3G devices. Also, people having BSNL mobil will be able to make video calls only to those having bsnl as mobil service provider, as no other service provider has got 3G capabilities of now. So, its only bsnl here..Remember those olden days when the BSNL phone used to be dead for major part of day, do we get to see this in case of 3G as well??
    • Why didnt BSNL go in for Apple iPhone 3G when they were actually having resources to provide 3G? Its a waste of money and time for those who have purchased it through Airtel or Vodafone…

    One things good that we are actually getting some premium services in India, however, as a consumer, we need to demand QoS from all service providers, whether its the ISP, telco or even the government that we elect..(or others elect..)

    Olympic Medal, Apple iPhone, and me 

    Last two weeks were of great hustle bustle for Indian sports. Abhinav Bindra won the first individual gold medal in 10 m shooting event for independent India, later Shushil Kumar, a Najafgarh lad fetched a bronze in freestyle wrestling, the last one was in 1952 Helsinki Olympics, and on the same day, Bhiwani based boxer, Vijender Kumar ensured a sure bronze in boxing, 75 kg catagory. So far, this has been the best sports performance by Indian in any major sport event, the other mentionable achievements being winning the 1983 ICC World Cup under Kapil Dev, and the 2007 Twenty-20 world cup win under Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s captaincy. Some people said that Abhinav won gold because he had enough resources to get out of the under facilitated  Indian sports system, we thought, perheps this is the way winners are created. But Sushil Kumar, a person whose father is a MTNL driver, managed to win a bronze in wrestling. True, shooting and wrestling cannot be compared, but I cant help thinking, is the system so bad that you need to be a multi millionaire to win a gold for country? If that was the case, then Sushil Kumar might never had a chance..

    A lesson is lurking in there for budding sportsmen out there

    1. If you are like Abhinav Bindra,a super rich having truck load of money, resources and passion to make it to the top, dont worry for a damm ‘system’ or anything related, just do what you feel will take you to the top.

    2. If you are like Sushil Kumar, or Vijender Kumar, maybe you have to rely on government provided facilities, even though one may say the govt lacks the latest technology and infrastructure, still, thats your best hope and best choice.  The government is too slow to do things, but once in a while, it does produce winners.

    3. Olympic events are great, but thats not the ultimate goal. take for example, a sport like Formula 1 acing is at par with any sports event, I think its the most expensive sport ever known to mankind, we should excel in that too..Dr Vijay Mallya, the head honcho of Formula Force India has got enough money to make a good car..leave that it wont beat Ferrari in near future, but still…their ad shows Shahrukh Khan saying – ‘I want to compete with the best’,  Good luck mate..  😉

    Yesterday, on 22 August, Vodafone and Airtel launched Apple iPhone ‘officially’ in India. Originally, the iPhone sported a tag of $499 and $799, many Indians thought they might lay their hands on the hyped beauty, however, things soon turned the other way, the iPhone is avaiilable @ a cool 31000/- and 36000/- which is approx $900 in terms of US dollors, isent it too high?? Add to it, 3G is not present in India, the TRAI, the DoT are still a distance from striking the deal with 3G providers, nothings finalized..then why do I need to buy a pretty expensive wifi device? I could go in for Netgear or cisco routers, they allow great wifi features..No doubt Apple iPhone got not so great response in the Indian market. Mr Steve Jobs, dont take Indians for granted, they will pay you more if you give them what they need, but no chance if you provide half baked products at an exotic price.

    The Apple iPhone has got several limitations.

    1. You cannot forward an sms.

    2. No bluetooth present. Apple tries to fill this gap, expecting that wifi will overtake bluetooth devices, but then they will have to wait for some time.

    3. A 2 MP camera, no flash, no video. No takers for this one.

    Now, about me..

    Well, me had pretty ordinary week, barring a few lectures by people, everything was the same as usual. Trying hard to overcome the rage, and I think I will be successful in doing it. 🙂

    TRAI okays net telephony in India 

    The Telecom regulator in India, TRAI on Monday allowed ISPs to offer unrestricted internet telephony services, a move that will further boost competition in the domestic long distance segment and lower STD tariffs.

    “It is envisaged that customers will ultimately benefit from cost effective and innovative internet telephony service.

    These recommendations will put Indian telecom sector in tune with global trends. The grey market tendencies shall be curtailed,” TRAI said in a statement.

    As per the TRAI recommendations, the STD service providers would be connected to ISPs through public internet for the purpose and the two service providers would have mutual agreement for the same.

    The move will permit calls from personal computers to fixed line and mobile phones. Currently, a voice call can travel between two computers but not from a mobile or a fixed phone. This is expected to open huge channels of revenues for Internet Service Providers (ISPs).

    The Telecom Engineering Centre (TEC), a technical arm of Department of Telecom, will work out the number plan for the ISPs to enable them to offer telephone services.

    “Telephone numbers from identified blocks shall be allocated to ISPs, Unified Access Service Providers, BasicService Providers and Cellular Mobile Service Providers for internet telephony,” TRAI said.

    With a view to make internet telephony secure, TRAI said, all ISPs interested to provide unrestricted internet telephony would install “Lawful Interception” equipments. Usually, that would mean that the government or law enforcement agencies will be able to monitor anyone, good to prevent terrorist conversations, but potentially seen as a invasion on privacy..Further, voice grade communication requires strict QoS control and it also needs good broadband penetration among people..Given the policy of calling 256 kbps as broadband in India, I doubt whether there will be real mass appeal to this scheme. Lets see..

Top leaders from almost 80 countries are visiting Beijing for this extravaganza. Here’s a joke thats being passed here in India.

    Dubya, the George Bush Jr, who is enjoying his few days as American President, is visiting China as a guest at the Beijing Olympics ceremony, where he is supposed to deliver a small speech.

    He’s handed over a speech letter by his secretary. Dubya goes through it, and begins…

      I read all the comments from your fans (Am your fan too), and guess what all of us feel about same that you’re gr8.

      You’re gourgeuos, you act well, you dance well, I mean everything about you is so perfect.

      But, I was wondering what kind of person you are? (don’t misunderstand).

    How to write a kludgy news crawler in Python and challenge Google News to its limits 

    A kludge (or, alternatively, kluge) is a clumsy or inelegant solution to a problem or difficulty. In engineering, a kludge is a workaround, typically using unrelated parts cobbled together. Especially in computer programs, a kludge is often used to fix an unanticipated problem in an earlier kludge; this is essentially a kind of cruft.

    I was searching data on my old disk and I found some interesting code I had written(rather abandoned) an year and half ago. At that time, I was very fascinated by the concept of Google News, which scanned and gathered news from almost 450 sources and mash up them together on one single page.  Mnay sources, one destination. Needless to say, Google created a smash hit product.Life appeared easy, all of sudden.

    Given my nature, it wasent surprising  that I desired to write the next Google News Killer app. It began at night…around 10:30 to be precise. I was determined to finish the program in a nights time. Python was my original (and only) choice that seemed suitable for me to create the next biig thing. Googling around I found that a module feedparser.py makes parsing RSS feeds easy(so to say). However, there was a problem – At that time, I had no clue of what XML meant. That was only the beginning. Later, I also discovered that I had extremely limited knowledge of HTML..Then I realized that my Python basics were giving me plenty of surprises…

    Bah..it looked so bad, here I was trying to write a good program, and there were tonnes of difficulties in first path itself. However, determination took over desperation, and after tweaking and pondering for well over 46 minutes, I was able to produce an extremely kludgy , extremely basic, extremely primitive Google News Killer – Wow…..the feeling was so good.  Imagine – writing something out of scratch, and that too without any help(ok, I took help from Mark Pilgrims feedparser.py and python.org) I chose to call it News Crawler.

    Get the python file by clicking the link – check-news Dont forget to rename it the file to check-news.py and also, make sure that identions are proper.

    Now something about the code.

    1. As I said earlier – the code is extremely dumb, extremely kludgy, extremely primitive, extremly basic and theres lot of shoddiness in there. Dont laugh at it even if it appears funny.

    2. The code has heard nothing of security, and is meant to run under controlled environment.

    3. It dosent make use of any SQL database backend, but is wise enough to store the RSS feeds on HDD before dissecting them,and extracting useful content.

    4. It expects that the XML files are in Unicode format. Some rouge sites make use of shabby encoding, which raises an exception in the program.

    5. I havent added any exception handling, just laziness, nothing more.

    6. For reference, I have shown how we can incorporate Slashdot and Reddit feeds on single page. You can add in your favourite feed.


    1. Make use of a good HTML templeting system.

    2. Solve the problem of unicode.

    3. Add error checking and improve its utility by making use of Pythons object oriented features.

    4. Add a SQL backend system for storing the parsed RSS data. To be honest, its the toughest job to do.

    5. Post up a nice powerpoint presentation describing the system. 🙂

    5. PS – I will definately not do anything of above unless someone seriously decides to fund me.

    After a long time I am back to programming world, I got so busy with other things that I had to abandon my dream project, but who knows, someday it may come true..  😉

    Arushi Talwar – who was the real villian? 

    Some people stick to fame in their lifetime, some, like the teenager Arushi Talwar become famous after being killed..Who made Arushi Talwar’s death famous? – The Media. The news media in India needs to be seriously monitored for the senselessness they have been showing on TV. First they portray someone as a murderer, a dacoit, a criminal, without investigating in deep and then after the real story is out, they start portraying the same person as a saint, a holy man who was caught in crime..! Whoa, isent that great?

    I dont know who killed Arushi, I dont even care about what Dr Talwar was, I dont even bother about who Hemraj was,but as a viewer, I am fed up with the news channels that show crap and complete nonsense on the TV.Heck, why should I subscribe to channels that continuously show irrelevant content as a part of their main program? Hey, now it sucks, news channels have becoming a sort of reality time pass show, where they can make a news out of anything, virtually anything. The real criminals in the Arushi Talwar murdar case were the news channels, the media, and the idiot investigation agencies, the police who didnt know how to react in this situation. Suddenly, everyone involved in there wanted to become famous, even if that fame would last for 15 seconds..Why people are hell bent on becoming famous?? Perhaps Madhur Bhandarkar should make a new film named – Fame or News Channel. Hot topics for a controversial film.

    But one question remains unanswered – Who is the real villian in Arushi Talwar case?  My bet is on the over eager news channelsaka news mongrels. They are the main villians.

    Update on 10 September 2008

    The CBI has failed to file a chargesheet against any person and offered a prize worth Rs 10000/- to the one who tells who killed Arushi talwar…According to me, the system killed Arushi, the media killed Arushi, now throw me the money 😉

    The New Age dilemma 

    • S: (n) dilemma, quandary (state of uncertainty or perplexity especially as requiring a choice between equally unfavorable options)

    I have discovered a new ego bruising experience. If you are a single individual, and having lot of virtual girl friends on social networking tools like Orkut, then you might have noticed that whenever the girls status changes to ‘commited’ there is something, a sort of silent tiing that goes across the mind..It isent exactly pain or unhappiness, its something mix of surprise, shock, bruised ego and just like that…

    No actual reason why this happens, but fair enough, so many times I have preached to people – Digital Social Networks esp Orkut are a fun, playway mirror of our daily lives, but the real problem arises when we start relating those tools with our real life and begin attaching our emotions and expectations to our virtual meetings. A timepass turns trouble for some. Should Orkut/Facebook/Myspace be avoided? Or is it the beginning of a new age desperation? Boy…this things tough to comprehend…Web 2.0 has binded people togather on a common platform but no ones ever thinking of the trouble that is following us..Wake up…Welcome to the new age dilemma.

    Tags: , , , Slambook, Teen Age   


    Slambook….after so many years, I remember this…I never got a chance to be in someones slambook, but it was something very hot in my school days. Usually, it was as self decorated book having different sections like we have on Orkut, except that we had to manually fill it in our own handwriting. Bad handwriting wasent allowed and the system was ultra secret. It was meant to be an exclusive girl-to-girl communication system. Boys werent allowed nearby, but I confess that I had once stolen a slambook out of pure curiosity, just to get details of what happens in there. It was luck, but peeping in someones property is equivalent of stealing…Later I meekly returned that book, the girl was shocked..!! She said – ‘Did you read this??’ I said – ‘No, why should I?’ I lied, I know, but I read everything, everything that was supposed to be a secret away from most of boys reach.

    Some interesting stuff I remember was

    1. The address and phone number – Every girl jotted down her phone number and postal address. In those days cellular phones were non existant and pagers were ultra cool. It was of no great use to me, I did not have a landline number, and the line I used for speaking would be heavily monitored. Besides, I was too lazy to move around on a cranky bicycle hunting for the girls address.

    2. Likes – It was default that a girl likes ice cream and black forest. For a long time, I didnt know what black forest meant until someone fed me a delicious combination of chocolate, cake, coffee, ice cream, then I realized its a yummy thing…and since then, its my favourite till date.

    3. Favourite colour – Insignificant detail, but pink was common..We dont have this on Orkut 😛

    4. Favourite film – Most of them mentioned Hollywood stuff. I wasent permitted to see any Hollywood film(officially) till I  became 18. Unofficially, I watched many Hollywood movies, and my parents dont know that 😉 Never knew why girls liked Tom Cruise. I liked his mission impossible 2 movie, because I was facinated by the bikes in it, not the heroine.

    5. Every girl tried to decorate her slam content as good as possible. (I recall, my drawing belonged to the genre of Mr Pablo Picasso. Ultra Modern, abstract, and complex, my teacher once mocked me that you will be the next Picasso of India.She was rude..I didnt like that joke)

    Today, I am riding on the messeges sent by Gods of Technology, as if I am from other galaxy, or an Almighty, but innocence is what I want. Those were the best days of my life…Sweet and innocent. Free from complexities of all this world..Todays kids arent so lucky..They have got everything, but the charm of a naive and raw life is unknown to them..Today we have got Orkut, Facebook, Myspace, theres even one online virtual site, but that beautiful handwritten slambook remains an eluded teen age dream…nostologia peheps..

      Wow….its so nice you wrote about it….brings back all those memories of school days….went roaming about in class asking ppl to fill it out….

    Tributes to a warrior – Feild Marshal Sam Manekshaw 

    Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw, MC

    I pay tributes to Feild Marshal Sam Manekshaw. A true soldier, a brave son of India, you have got no parallel. You will be remembered for several generations. Sam Bahadur, we are proud of you. History and Future will always respect you for your valour.  I wonder what the Indian cricket team might be thinking when they beat Bangladesh (former East Pakistan) at Karachi, Pakistan in the Asia Cup 2008. Except for MS Dhoni, most of the players are nuts…least they should remember that this victory comes due to the valient efforts of some brave men, one of them being Sam Bahadur..Bangladesh owes this man a lot.

    Enlightment,a new hope 

    मी आसाच आहे……
    धर्मासाठी झुंजावे…
    झुंजोनी अवाघ्यांसी मारावे…
    मारिता मारिता घ्यावे राज्य आपुले…
    देव मस्तकी धरावा,
    अवघा हल्लकल्लोळ करावा..

    Men are haunted by the Future. Men are haunted by the vastness of eternity. And so we ask ourselves: will our actions echo across the centuries? Will strangers hear our names long after we are gone, and wonder who we were, how bravely we fought, how fiercely we loved?

    I call myself a Peaceful Warrior… because the battles I fight are on the inside..

    All Karmas proceed with the force to either remove pain or gain pleasure
    Experiencing pleasure and pain, we roam the streets of Samsara

    Where there is Birth, there will be certain pain
    There is certain Death, and nothing to gain

    Not knowing light from darkness we roam the streets of misery
    In beauty there is ugliness
    In ugliness I see beauty too
    What a repulsive body that I have which oozes grime and filth
    These carnal desires do I find unfulfilling

    Where there is Birth, there will be certain pain
    There is certain Death, and nothing to gain

    Sadashiva Samarambham Shankaracharya Madhyamam
    Asmadacharya Paryantam Vande Guru Paramparam

    सदाशिवा समारंभम् शंकराचार्य माध्यमं
    आसमादचर्यां पारयनतम् वन्दे गुरू परंपरामं

    Finally the Truth is seen
    Unknowable once to me but now known to me
    What an error it is to take myself to be what I am not

    No words can reveal me
    Yet words alone set me free
    The beatitude revealed through desciplic succession

    No delusion for me
    I am the ever free
    No illusion for me
    I am the ever free

    Finally, the desires are Ash, I smear those ashes on my forehead and I free myself. Bhasma on my body..Bhasma on my soul..I am liberated….the Pain turns to Love….a new hope..Maya reveals her true form…

    Maya is inevitable…

    I submit myself to Maya..

    Maya has set me free…

    The revelations are known…

    May there be peace..

      Buddha was suffering from acute depression…But do you know that Buddhas teachings did protect Indian sub continent from maniac Mongols till 1962 India China wars??

      The only way to prevent any sorts of conflicts is to accept the things as they come to you without asking for its purpose or to think about its consequences. The only truth is the Desires we have with us. Denying Desires for some imaginary reasons is root cause of sorrow, and its funny that in todays marketing age, people can cash on sorrow too..if you can cash it on, sorrow is fine, else submit yourself to Maya unconditionally, rest assured, everything works in your favour…

    Sanjay Dutt sentenced to 6 years imprisonment 

    Sanjay Dutt, the film actor of Mumbai based film industry and one of the accused in the 1993 Mumbai Bomb blasts has been sentenced to imprisonment of 6 years by the special TADA court which is giving final touches to the case..11 people have been given death sentences, while 9 have been given life inprisonment. There are several aspects to this case, where many common people, especially the ones who lost their near ones in the 93 blasts feel that the accused should be meted severs punishment, and going by the current scene, it can be said that the court is doing a right job.

    Meanwhile, Sanjay Dutt too has many supporters who believe that he is innocent…thats the sade situation in this case..Sanjay Dutt should have been given more harsh sentence, but because of his friendly ties with the curent ruling party, the Indian National Congress, there can be a possibility of some authorities to maintain a soft corner to him. The Bollywood, the hindi film industry always supports Sanjay Dutt, considering a fact that a lot of money has been invested in his films, however, I hope that Sanjay Dutt gets to spend 6 years in jail. He totally deserves more then that, but because of great Indian democracy(rather a circus),judges have a pressure on them…considering the fact that media has got a lot of hyperinterest in campaigning for Sanjay Dutt. Arseholes..!!!

    Dawood Ibrahin, the Pakistani based international terrorist is another wanted in the Mumbai 93 blast case. I read that the FBI is warning Pakistan to hand over Dawood Ibrahim to them, now its interesting to observe what thaings are going to take place in the future..

    Happy Blogging – Blogging completes its first 10 years 

    According to Wall Street Journal, this is the 10th year since the first blog came to life..thats quite an incredible fact.

    Blogging has got several advantages

    1. It allows people to create web content that people can read and comment on

    2. It also made use of RSS (web site syndication), and also introduced several new concepts like podcasting, content management, social networks, news feeds etc.

    3. Arguably, one can say that true digital democracy exists today primarily due to blogs people read and people write. Infact there have been several instances where there were heated discussions of bloggers being ‘failed’ journalist, but anyway, todays bloggers have got far more awareness as far as content quality is concerned.

    4. Blogging forms the first successful step in Web 2.0 revolution.

    Lets know something more about the blokes who began this revolution.

    1. Dave Winer, 52, pioneered the development of weblogs, syndication (RSS), podcasting, outlining, and web content management software; former contributing editor at Wired Magazine, research fellow at Harvard Law School, entrepreneur, and investor in web media companies. A native New Yorker, he received a Master’s in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin, a Bachelor’s in Mathematics from Tulane University and currently lives in Berkeley, California.

    (From scripting.com, quite a good read, but dont worry if you fail to understand some of the post content)

    2. Jorn Bargar is the father of the term ‘weblog’ which was actually a joint word of ‘Web Log’, when he began the first blog of internet history –The Robot Wisdom.

    3.The next mentioning blog is BoingBoing. Boing Boing (originally bOING bOING) is a publishing entity, first established as a magazine, later becoming an award winning group blog.

    4. Curiously, I find that a blog going by a title ‘icanhascheezburger‘ is always at the top of WordPress blogs most of the time, I am not too sure what this thing means, but its certain that people visit that blog more times then they visit mine…I rarely visit that blog, but the curious ones can try it out 😛

    This is what the blog owner says

    I Can Has Cheezburger is a site that gathers, organizes, tags, and captions what we hope is the most funny and slightly weird pictures of lolcats and lol* (other animals) from the Internet. We also receive user submissoins, and we caption some (tag = wemadesit!). Many of the earlier images on this site were found around the internet and forums (there are hundreds of forums where this meme has grown outside of its original context such as fark, fazed, vwforums, gpforums) — we attribute as much information as is available, however due to the nature of the internet, anonymity, the inability to locate the creators of a picture, and sourcing info our information may be incomplete, or flawed.

    There are more interesting blogs and sites, I will continue adding here, but later…till then,

    Happy Blogging…

    Get an Apple iPhone for free 

    Theres a strange aura about Apple iPhone, theres so much to write about it, people outside America are madly waiting to lay their hands on this wonderful amalgamation between a Apple Macintosh + mobil phone + iPod + PDA + fragile design + hype.

    How about winning this incredible device for free without answering freaky questions, without solving ridiculous puzzles, without stealing, or dropping dead? A comparatively new, lesser known web 2.0 review company-Rev2 is giving away iPhones for free, over here. Hard to believe, but theres no reason why one shouldent try to win this thing, after all, its the iPhone, the real iPhone we all non Americans, Asians have been waiting for.

    Apple definately must be happy seeing the way iPhones were sold out however there were some reports of slow activation, delayed starts, non replacable SIM cards by AT&T, but thats all, apart from this there hasent been any major hassle of any sort.

    Many people are curious to know when the Apple iPhone is to be launched in India/Asia, I think Apple should try coming here early, else this market will be captured by Treo, Nokia N series, Motorola, and Sony Erricson multemedia devices.

    Umm…the future looks awesome, hope for some more goddy. Dont forget this cool site giving an Apple iPhone for free. Rev2.org indeed is having lots of guts, and mind you, theres no big sites thats offering this scheme as of now. Good luck.

    A practical approach for blocking Orkut and saving trouble 

    From the past few days theIndian media is in all sorts of frenzy, displaying the news and reports telling that Indian government has instructed CERT India to ‘ban’ Orkut access primarily because,

    1. Indian authorities believe that Orkut allowes creation of flame communities that pack enough ammunation to set cities on fire and a punch that hurts the fragile ego of icon worshippers.

    2. Orkut is a place where loners waste their bandwidth hunting for girls, their personal details, a photograph or pieces of vital info.

    3. Orkuts a facinating place where you can abuse anyone, yes anyone, ranging from George Dubya Bush to the local administration without the fear of getting in line of fire. Although too much abusing or ranting can lead to your profile or community being marked as fake. But why bother , you can create plenty of fake accounts.

    4. Orkut is also a place where one can secretly plan their next rave party without the cops noticing it.

    Actually, I am not sure that this is what the government or authorities think of, but these all activites are being carried out on Orkut. No doubt about it. And I also know that the democratic government of India will try as little as possible to ‘ban’ it, afterall, the govt has so many daunting tasks ahead of them, be it the election of new president after Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, the Chinese theat claims over Arunachal Pradesh, the rising value of ruppee against the US dollor(Huh, isent this thing funny? The rise of ruppee against dollor is extremely conducive to the booming Indian economy, but is a warning bell for the cheap service industry that is the home of US BPOs etc. Strange ways of economy. What to lose and what to keep?)

    On top of it, people get mad each time they discover that Orkut is being misused by sadistic outfits for achieving their targets. Orkut certainly gives a nice facility to create various groups and read a wide audience, but is it vitally necessary to get involved in Orkut to a level where we find it difficult to communication without the digital network? I mean the analog social network, the real one is much more good option.

    Some reasons for Orkuts wide misuse

    1. It allows creation of fake profiles and hate communities. Although theres provision for reporting it as bogus, the procedure isent foolproof. It can work either ways. Using this facility, someone can report a persons profile as bogus, even though that individual may be posting the truth. Who is to decide that the validity and quality of contents posted are in interest of community or no? Tough job, AI hasent reached this height as of now.

    2. People have to learn to exist in digital world. Even if the digital world is limited to a few dark servers placed on unknown datacenters, the impact they cause on real lifes can be damaging. It cannot be blamed on any digital network. People carry their personality, their good, bad attributes, imperfections, ideologies where ever they go. When this happens, usually theres trouble, leading to unstability.

    Inspite of everything, Orkut wont be ‘banned’, no one except the Chinese govt has the courage to ‘ban’ Google, but I still think that Orkut needs to be ‘blocked’ in offices, corporations, at place of work, school, colleges, government sections, public places etc. Doing this will be more feasible. Majority of well known companies block access to Orkut site, the reason is very simple – Dont want to distract the employees attention from work, and dont want to get into any legal trouble because of any employees miscreant activies.

    In schools and colleges, we go to study and not surf the web. Its common sense. We dont want to expose students to ill effects of bad company.

    So, that leaves us to homes. Yes, at home, we are free to do  anything. Access Orkut from your home.

    Moral of the story – Orkut cannot be ‘banned’ in India but it certainly can be ‘blocked’ by using proxy servers. Any digital social network can be a great tool to explore the world around us, but till the time we dont find a common unified way of understanding the ‘real’ world, we might face these problems forever.

    And as usual, as far as I am concerned, I personally feel that there are lot of other problems in this world that need a top priority attention example – Global Warming, Rise of terrorist outfits etc. It makes little sense to quarrel and argue over a damm freaky Orkut.

    Magnetic Media 

    One of the most common ways to transport data from one computer to another is to write them onto magnetic tape or removable media (e.g., recordable DVDs), physically transport the tape or disks to the destination machine, and read them back in again. Although this method is not as sophisticated as using a geosynchronous communication satellite, it is often more cost effective, especially for applications in which high bandwidth or cost per bit transported is the key factor.

    A simple calculation will make this point clear. An industry standard Ultrium tape can hold 200 gigabytes. A box 60 x 60 x 60 cm can hold about 1000 of these tapes, for a total capacity of 200 terabytes, or 1600 terabits (1.6 petabits). A box of tapes can be delivered anywhere in the United States in 24 hours by Federal Express and other companies. The effective bandwidth of this transmission is 1600 terabits/86,400 sec, or 19 Gbps. If the destination is only an hour away by road, the bandwidth is increased to over 400 Gbps. No computer network can even approach this.

    For a bank with many gigabytes of data to be backed up daily on a second machine (so the bank can continue to function even in the face of a major flood or earthquake), it is likely that no other transmission technology can even begin to approach magnetic tape for performance. Of course, networks are getting faster, but tape densities are increasing, too.

    If we now look at cost, we get a similar picture. The cost of an Ultrium tape is around $40 when bought in bulk. A tape can be reused at least ten times, so the tape cost is maybe $4000 per box per usage. Add to this another $1000 for shipping (probably much less), and we have a cost of roughly $5000 to ship 200 TB. This amounts to shipping a gigabyte for under 3 cents. No network can beat that. The moral of the story is:

    Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes hurtling down the highway.

    Yamaha Gladiator 165cc 

    Yamaha Gladiator 165cc

    Hmm…heres the picture of the new Yamaha Gladiator 165cc. Its Yamaha Indias answer to Bajaj Pulsar DTSi, TVS Apache and Hero Honda CBZ and Karizma. The Bajaj-Yamaha alliance was just a speculation I never wished to be true.

    This bike will be available in mid 2007, but unfortunately, I cannot have this mean machine, as my current Yamaha is quite new..

      Yeah, the bike is surely the way to go for Yamaha. Hope this one gets the company out of hibernation and back on the leaderboard.

      Although 165 cc doesn’t sound massive, hope it starts a chain reaction in company to bring bigger machines of Yamaha on indian roads.

      We all know the reliability and superior chassis designs of Yamahas, & I’m sure this one will be no different. It looks great, with sensible fairing and color job (Yamaha always does the best paint job), check the reverse front forks, thats a first one for us, &check the clip on handlebar too. Still I felt they should have gone for better rear suspension, but hey! no complaints from me.

      Its time we get some big guns from the Yamaha salon.

      Hope we get to see it for real soon….

      We all are Yamahas fans in a way or other, and let me tell you – I am as eager as you are, and I am seriously waiting for this bike to launch. The time duration is mid july 07. Actually the current Yamaha Gladiator 125 cc is a very nice bikes in terms of pick up, speed, looks,reliability and style, the only problem is that Yamaha India dosent believe in promoting its bikes too much. Imagine, they have got John Abraham, ‘Docter’ Valentino Rossi in MotoGP – so much they can market their bikes, but alas, they are still lagging and other players like Bajaj are capturing the ‘young’ market with Pulsar 150 cc and above, whereas Hero Honda and TVS are making 100cc bikes(the largest selling segment in Indian bike market). Yamaha India is confused whether as to concentrate on 100cc market or capture the hi-end 200cc+ market.

      However, lets wait and hope for the best.

      Cheers 😀

      1. YBX125.(Bit spectical it was under yamaha india or escort yamaha)
      2. Crux
      3. Crux R
      4. Libero
      5. Libero G5
      6. Fazer(With that allien head lamp)
      7. Fazer(Without that allien head lamp)
      8. Gladiator (With spokes)
      9. Gladitator (JA)

      Rossi can even win on a kawasaki

    • Dinesh 6:43 am on April 25, 2007 Permalink | Reply

      or even on a suzuki, it has nothing to do with YAMAHA…
      I had a RXG for 8 years it was the best… better than all avaliable in market today…. as there was no gear problem no cluth problem, sheer performance, waited for 4 years to get an another yamaha…. but yamaha offered cruxR, cruxy, cruxZ, and the libero…I cant wait anymore, hope yamaha is reading this and launches a bike before october….and that too 200cc bike no 165cc anymore, because bajaj had raised the bar higher, hope some sane mind agrees with me

      It’s me again. Well I can’t buy Gladiator even if it comes out because I don’t live in India anymore. Although the memoirs of RX100 has made me a life-time devotee of Yamaha, but their current state of stupidity is beyond contemplation. So much so that some websites are predicting that they may shut down within this year. Which makes me more certain about “NO” 165cc Gladiator; however, if it really happens maybe the current YMIL’s MD could explain his stupidity before he catches his flight back home and says “Sayonara.”
      Once again please reply

      Hi all. Im a deadly fan of Yamaha. Frm the begining im riding Yamaha Bikes only. 1st from RX135, then RXZ, then Entizer, then CRUX, then CRUX R, then finally now flying on with my FAZER. In my town i hav took this FAZER first and for that i hav came in Newspaper too. Proud of it. Expecting to throw away this Fazer instead of 165 Gladiator flying machine. Launch at the earliest.

      This bike seems dynamic but again yamaha fails in making the shape of fuel tank attractive.As the shape of fuel tank in gladiator is not good so i have bought pulsar. But what i have seen u repeated the same tank. Althought the tank is not good i need more information and photographs from different angle to think upon it.

      yamaha gladiator its to late for you to make this 165cc bike…already 150cc plus market is dominating by indian companies. they even produced to 200cc plus. so which made honda company a stifff competition to survive in the market .i dont when this bike was launched in the indian market then indian companies would launch fairly more powerful bike……

      Hi guys!

      Dont wait for yamaha gladiator 165 becoz so far yamaha has only disappointed the indian customer with its previous models. Pulsars are far too common and not very reliable too. Go for TVS Apache RTR 160, which will soon hit the road. From what i have read, it is definitely going to beat all the other 150s and could take on the pulsar 180 too. Besides, TVS have made the Apache TRT 160 a little more lengthier, so it looks as big as the pulsars. It also has LCD speedo. Go for TVS Apache RTR 160

      About newly rumoured Yamaha 150cc all set to be launched in 2008, well I fear that when 2008 will commence, Yamaha people will say that they are postponing it for 2009, and when comes 2009 then ……. you do the math.
      Since 2003, I have been reading in various places about how much investment Yamaha has done in India and still plans to do, but what is the result; the same old 106cc and 123.7 cc, what’s wrong with them?

    • Nadir 5:00 am on July 14, 2007 Permalink | Reply

      Guys – its too little, too late. If Yamaha wants to win in India, they have to live up to their image – their image is Performance and quality. It makes no sense for them to fool around in the 100 – 165 cc range only. These guys should have the guts and gumption to launch a true blood 250 cc 400 cc at very competitive prices – I mean they are loosing money anyway, why not loose by subsidizing the price of these performance bikes – they will build IMAGE so strongly their brand value will soar. Instead of spending crores on dumb ads like the one for the Alba with one looser girl getting a tatoo of a 125 cc bike on her back and acting like its the biggest thing in life …..or the one where they show awesome performance bikes zooming around the place, yet the sell the equivalent of mopeds in their stable in India. What a convoluted, pansy approach to our market. No respect for the Indian consumer means no success – when will these guys take the lessons Mercedes has obviously learned …
      Indians love a good deal – so if the Yamaha management take a good look at history, they need to give us something that gets out blood rushing – like they did with the RD 350 – and the RX 100 . THAT is Yamaha. Bring it on Ishikawa and you will see – a good 250 cc about a Lakh and a good 400 about 1.75 – 1.18 lakh (loose a little if you have to on these) will take your image and resultant sales of little peashooter bikes that you make in vast quantities through the proverbial roof. YAMAHA needs to be YAMAHA and not some sad-ars*d version of Munjals and their little commuters from Hero Honda.

      I feel its high time 4 YAMAHA to roll out this bike Gladi 165cc ASAP, because it really luks damn attractive and moreover other bike manufacturers r capturing the market and the only way 4 YAMAHA to regain the lost glory is to release this bike with all the latest ingredients…

      Yamaha recently got a new head in India, who likes to give new thrust to the Yamaha co in India. As per their sources, this NEW SEXY BIKE ON THE BLOCK will be up and carrying you only in EARLY 2008 !!!

      Hah! Toooooooooooo long? Well, even Bajaj’s Swirl and Avenger 200cc is also scheduled similarly. In mean time, 125cc aspirants maycheck the new TVS Flame to be launched in NOV/DEC 2007.

      Presently I have been driving Yamaha Libero for 4-1/2 Years and it is giving very good performance as well as comfort and its directional stability which, I did not find in any other Bike of this series.

      I am awaiting for the next higher model of Yamaha, preferably 150 CC onward, to be purchased for my Son and my nephews.

      Pl. let me know when it is going to be launched in India and what will be its tentative Price?

      I have a suggestion for Yamaha: Please incorporate “Mono Suspension” in all your Models, you will find that the sale of YAMAHA Bikes will increase to a great extent and it will become the Highest Saling Bike in India. Silver White Colour with Red combination, as in 165 CC bike, is most appealing one.

      Dear Sirs,

      In India so many bikes are coming, but no one introduced with a speciality level as per the publics expectation. All are releasing only model based not life long durability.

      My Suggions are :

      In city generaly in the Traffic level all will ride the bike in 1st & 2nd gear mostly. In this stage we loose petrol ( Here if you can made as given below if possible then all will get excess milage and reduction of tention ride and accident risk safe and mide relaxation and easy to ride the vehicle single or family ride both will get benefit ) Here if possible to manufacture like 1st & 2nd gear on Automation Engine Accileration ( like Activa Honda / TVS Pep + / TVS – XL Super / Kinetic Honda or Specialy like Hero Honda Street Deluxe – without clutch ) model that is without gear system. This stage will be applicable with out Nutral and in the front loading gear leaver down pressing system for Indian city heavy traffic place and slow ride operation methodology.

      After this Auto Gear finished in 2 gear speed level operation only, we will move in to speed increase system by operating Clutch with gear change level ( this gear increases will be applicable as per the road conditon and traffic level and need level of speed transmission upto 3rd gear to 5 or 6th gear by operating front load single lever by Top Lifting with leg front toe not operating by back leg lever. This front & back operation will give non rest and hard level of operation in the traffic.

      After the Top gear if we need to reduce or come down to Auto gear place ( Low Speed operation ) we have to press one Auto operation leg lever in one press ( Like Bullet Nutral Leg Lever ) will come to Auto gear engine operation.

      In 1975 Escorts introduced Rajdoot – GTX – 175 CC model bike with lower Height and short length. Now, a days lots of traffic problem and road capacity ( width ) stage why our Indian Bike Mfg. co., may develop to introduce Scooter Wheel with Kinetic Blaze level width wheel with split ( divide type ) wheel easy to operate for puncture ( to avoide / will not get damage tyre beading and rim edge damages ), Centre Engine as per my above suggestions / Chain Drive not belt drive / with chain guard / very important is all out side mechanics can easy to work with the excellent work space ( i.e. the work should not give troble to attend one simple job and not to open all 3 – 4,5 linked bolt & nut removel system . Ex. to attend one head or bore work , we should not open the shock absorber, air filter etc.. ) if we work on one part there only we have to concentrate. otherwise unnessary time delay / iritation / hand get injurty while opening nut & bolt because of no space to work operation. Those problems may give a caution for your bikes failure in the market. Your mfg. bike as per my above design lookes like scooter and covered inner bike system, safe coverage with metalic body ( No fibre coverage — if damages made public can’t by with higher cost ) rear 2 shock absorber / Petrol Tank capacity Max. 8 – 10 Ltrs. with reserve 1.5 – 2 ltrs. capacity/ Battery 12V 9 Amps. / All the above will come below the seat. Like a scooter mfg. model public can use the front place for luggage / children seating hold and back seat for family. This should not be like a sports type seat . Because ladies will not like to sit on upper level seat system and this is not safe also. If even seat or like Avenger model seat aged ladies can also sit without risk. Pinion holder like Bajaj Avenger. Centre Stand like Bullet only and side stand also to be provided. Crash Bar Not necessary for this type bike. In this scooter cum bike model side body should be like Laby / Vijay Supder model because in that rider and Pinion rider can rest their foot in the long extended foot rest place without nee trouble and leg pain and the side body also like that because of centre engine model should be same like a bike engine not like a rear wheel linked body engine. The side sheeld can easy to open with 2 – 3 only hand open screws with one key system on both left and right side.

      In the scooter & bike model out of regular body left and right side one foot rest sheeld bar to be fixed like Yamaha Enticer for gear and Rear Break operations. This side place for Rider convenient centre place for luggage and front sitting persons ( Small Boys / Girls ) foot rest place.

      Handle Bar sytems like Bike model above the Scooter model front sheeld with tool box like bajaj scooters not like k honda and Act. honda fiber box. Below the handle bar Rain water should not enter in to the sheeld gap. In the in side of the Sheeld Gap we have to fix horn, indicator signal horn and one Metal bend tube to be welded for Carburator cable insertion for necessary changes required and clutch cable insertions. This pipe system will not give trouble to the mechanic while change the cable and easy to operation otherwise we have to open all the sheeld and others to change one or two cable.

      Front break two models ( Disc break and lineing break ), like Kinetic blaze with wide range wheel fixing rear and front both places if the out siders alterations also to be possibles should be in that engine front spraket and rear spraket extend as per width wheel fixation as per public wish also you have to satisfy for eary alterations ).

      Front fork telescopic model with heavy shock holding capacity. Speedo meter to be fixed seperate peace like Enfield Bullet. other wise for one speedo system we have to change the Hub. Mostly we have to give safety and cost of spending spares ( long life to be required like Escorts Rajdoot and TVS Etc… ). Ohters also good but the public willingness is long life only.

      Head light model should be exactly Enfield Bullet model without link with front fork top Pipe Holder Bolt fixing. Handle bar like fury or pulsar, Disc break right side handle bar fixing oil cup to be serperated and don’t merge with accelerator yoke. In the rear side totaly extra spaces to be kept on all the way because public may go for some alteration changes. Generaly we have to go our product as per public general mentality and wish and success capacity thought by mechanic. Then only your product will move in the market on higher sale basis.

      The above are my suggestions, If any body interested me to work on your organisation well and good to me to introduce new things in the needed world with my small capacity brain work.

      If anything I said wrongly, pl. forgive me and If you give any opinion on the above kindly mail me in rbaalu1976@gmail.com / balur@vetaglobal.com

      As you must have already read tht yamaha has launched it premium sports bike and cruiser R1 and MT01 in india this week.

      all the gladi lovers can wait for the bike.

      Its sure tht yamaha is going to launch 150cc to 250cc segment bikes once it is displayed in auto-expo 08. i m waiting for this bike since last feb.

      and it is almost sure tht it will be launched by nxt mnth.

      Even honda is comming out with new bike in tht same segment..
      so if u guys are planning to buy the bike in this mnth, i would suggest tht u should wait till jan. even suzuki is launching some good bike at the same time.

      all the compnies mantioned in this post are all international compnies which always produces quality.

      so i suggest dont go for Hero honda or bajaj as they are local indian compnies..

      Keep in mind on statment….

      Hope for the best and F–k the rest….

      I am using yamaha CRUXR for 7 years. it is running beyond 75000 km but still i used to chase the 125cc bikes which are released newly from different company. i like to ride 150 cc bikes from yamaha who is king of all other bikes. but i dont like and dont want to ride the 150cc bikes from any other. i am waiting for 2 years to buy 150cc and above from yamaha. but still they are irritating us without releasing the bikes.

      If this bike is launched in India. It surely rocks all other bikes in India.
      The top speed of Yamaha Gladiator 165cc is 136 Kmph. None of our Indian bikes have that much speed(Other than two stroke bikes). If this is launched in India it surely ROX.

      this is yogesh, the pics above is no doubt is Gladiator’s new version but hold on………………….it is not 165 cc it is just only 125 cc bike with some new design.
      I watch the bike in auto expo 2008, held in New Delhi.
      I know this one let the excitement down of some guys who loves speeds with designer effects.

      But i am sure that “YAMAHA INDIA” will recover all it’s losses and the main thig is “THE COMPANY’S REPUTATION”
      I hope u people don’t need an advisor but i am feeling that your company’s marketing manager is not giving his best.Because he is unable to understand “what people want”

Both the models are good I must say Now Yamaha is Really thinking for Indian market But still have to work hard on their Models like USA AND UK MODELS.

      I like YAMAHA as i own an RX more than a decade and 88 Rx well i could say that the company was good in the past when it was the world of two strokes,but it is very sad to say that the company cannot make or is not upto the indian peoples needs,they are still in the past in the time of 100cc and 125cc and that to they have all fuck all models like crux,libero,gladiator,it was easy for them just change the graphics a bit looks and all cosmetics done to the same YBX engine.
      Guys you all made a good name in your past models but i guess its more than a decade the company name has vanished,with all those nonsence bikes you are making,just take a look at that Bajaj,what was bajaj before just in scooters man now he the king in bikes just giving bikes to the people in variations,what do u have Yamaha.
      Frankly speaking you guys are just making fake talks,media calls,and fooling people with your upcomming models.Recently i saw R1 and Mt01 but guys can i ask u something which class of people are you targetting in India.First you give bikes like 150cc,200cc,250cc make your image in that class then u give the market R1 and other Bikes.You are too late in doing and implementing your bikes your aims in the market,if u you ask any one they wont recomend a bike from Yamaha,because people only know Yamaha by the RD and Rx and no other bike from Yamaha besides that.
      If you have something good in your R&D launch it man before someone launches their bike and captures your share.Do not misunderstand with this small msg i have written i am a well wisher of Yamaha cant see the co giong downnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
      All the best to your future plans YAMAHA

      come on guys if you are really bike lovers then atleast forget yamaha india as if now…they dont do any market research about indian customers and launch bikes on their own…eg. the prices of yamaha r15 (whoooping 1 lac plus), more powerful bike after rx 2 stroke series,even bikes shown above is just chorem few fairing and nothing else …check it….infact almost all of the top notch indian management has left their places and has joined rival camps because they think sensible…come on yamaha do some serious business…i am also ride a yamaha rxz…and i am satisfied…all the best yamaha…

      I had recently purchased yamaha gladiator ss in pondicherry ,later yamaha has released various colour variants , its of disappointment , but now 165 cc one , lack of spare parts , poor servicing . My dream bike and 1st one in my life and my family is proving futile , whether the company will address this .

      Poem in hindi for great yamaha and yamaha family and all of yamaha lovers.
      For R15 , FZ 160

      1 . Wo thi kal ki baat .
      Ho chuki hai jo purani.
      Aao kare suruat nai.
      Hai bhrosemand purana sathi wahi .
      Yamaha ne thani hai .
      Nai dosto ke saath hai aye.
      R 15 , FZ 160 se koi karega kya muqabla .
      Oro ne pehle hi sikast hai mani .
      Yamaha ne hai mana .
      Jurorat hai nai prayaso ki .
      Aaj garv hai , mujhe .
      Kyu pasand hai Yamaha mujhe .
      Pehle kabhi na mili , kisi aur or mai aise .
      Dekhne ko khubsurati .
      Socha na tha kabhi kisi ne .
      Yo Yamaha ne bdal di .
      Bike bazar ki kaya .

      2. Yamaha Yamaha Yamaha.
      Dekho na tujhe .
      Kaise aaye chen mujhe .
      Lajwaab ho tum itni .
      Kehne ko sabd mere pass nahi.
      Banane walo ne tujhe kya khob banya racha .
      Tere jaisa koi aur na duja .
      In lambi sadko ka taj ho tum .
      Shakti santulan aur khobsurti .…
      Hai behphana tujme samai .
      Ogte surya ka noor ho tum .
      Yamaha in dilo ki chaht ho tum .
      Two wheeler jagat ki shaan ho tum .
      Yamaha sabse aage ,sabse tej ho tum
      Hai her dil tujh pe fida .
      Yamaha kabol karo salam mera ..

      For john Abraham and yamaha
      3. Hai Yamaha bike nirali .
      Sabse alag pehchan wali .
      Sabse sunder dikhne wali .
      Sabke dilo ko chone wali .
      Shakti aur santolan wali .
      Sabke man ko bhane wali .
      Her aakhno me basne wali .
      Kache, pake ratile , rasto ko paar karne wali .
      Yamaha ka hai percham faila .
      Her juban per naam iska .
      John , john Abraham ne hai mana .

      John ki jaan – Yamaha .
      Tabhi to john kehta hai – yes Yamaha

      For great yamaha
      4. maine Yamaha ko
      Jab- jab dekha
      Dhop me isko
      Her bar chamkte dekha
      Jab- jab Yamaha akar rukti hai
      Tab-tab logo ki bhid ikothi hote dekha
      Maine jab- jab dekha
      Yamaha ko aage (badte) niklte dekha
      Jab-jab dekha ise
      Surksha ke liye bante dekha
      Jab- jab dekha ise
      Kache, pake ratile , rasto ko paar karte dekha
      Lajwab , bepanah , shakti ko dekha
      Suna , dekha logo ki jubani wah Yamaha
      Maine isko samay –samay per
      Nai roop nai power me dekha
      Iski behpanah gungise ko dekha
      Samay ke saath isko viksit hote dekh raha hoon
      Ate: her baar maine ise
      Sabse aage badte dekh raha hoon

      For Libero G5, Alba, YBR 106 cc bikes
      5. Ajab , gjab, nirali shan wali
      Aai dekho 106 ki bikes matwali
      106 cc ka kmal dekho dekho
      1 ltr. me 85 km chalte dekho
      173 mm ka ground clearance dekho
      Breakro ko jhukte dekho
      Iske lambe shockers dekho …
      Jo de aram ka vada
      Herani wali baat nahi
      Yamaha ki hai ye technique bhai
      Hai in 106 cc biko me khobiya baimisal
      Tabhi to hai Yamaha Alba ,YBR,Libero G5 –no samjhota bike

    The secret behind Bob Woolmers untimely death 

    On 18 March 2007 (the day after Pakistan’s unexpected defeat to Ireland) Bob Woolmer was found unconscious in his hotel room in Kingston, Jamaica. He was taken to the nearby University Hospital but it was later confirmed that he had died.

    It was a bizzaire news for the most, but there are some very secret motives hidden deep into the dark side of the moon. There are several speculations that point towards the match fixing bookies, but a very interesting theory has come to light.

    Could the US secret agencies like FBI or CIA behind this? Or is it the job of Pakistani Secret Service, the ISI done for giving Mussharaf a cue – Your time is up..?Or is it the job of international mafia bookies whose match fixing tricks are destroying the spirit of cricket?

    One thing is sure – The US now has realized that Mussharaf is unable to control the fanatic terrorist groups within his state. This is particularly dangerous for US troops lying stagnant in neighbouring Afghanistan, where the Taliban and Al Kaida are preparing to make a comeback, not fully though. Dubya Bush cannot afford to suffer loss due to troubled situations in Iraq and Afghanistan. On top of it, there is a deep discontent among top Pakistani military administration and the common public, esp the world saw the raging civilians marching against the recent removal of Supreme Court Judge.

    Whatever it may be..things are getting murkier as the time progresses..Indian needs to keep a watchful eye on these developments that take place. Another fanatic leader taking over Pakistan is gonna create trouble for India.

    An update March 24 12:29 IST

    Its now confirmed by the Jamaica Police that Bob Woolmer was murdered “due to asphyxia as a result of manual strangulation.

    The Jamaica Police has conducted a DNA test on Pakistani team and there is a strong chance of someone wrongdoing the South African for fear of getting exposed in match fixing scandal.
    Meanwhile, in India, Bob Woolmer is getting the media attention much more then what he used to get when he was alive..Watching the news channels for the day, I believe that conspiracy surround Woolmers muder is more important then any national issue. Now for rest of week, the news sleuths will be behind every detail occuring in Jamaica, and the media hype will be at its peak and we will get atmost bizzaire theories from the immature Indian TV channels. Pathetic dogs..

    According to some newsmakers example IBN-7, Inzamam is the prime culprit, while some(TIMES NOW, NDTV) are suspecting Danish Kaneria(the sole hindu player in pakistani team) for his passiveness in this case. Its funky to watch the half baked speculations that media makes..Whatever that might take… Match fixing cartels and mafias now rule the game along with the new underground bosses – the sponsers, who are sure to suffer huge revenues if India gets out of the competition cheaply..Afterall, not everyday one can invest million dollors and get nothing in return..

    Meanwhile, in other developments, the Indian team is yet again on slump of getting outbursted..with scores reading something as 43-2. I am not gonna stay awake for idiots like them. If they win, its good, if they dont, I will be happy..

While loss-ridden Yamaha doesn’t deny the possibility, it is giving the Indian market a last shot.Yamaha plans to put in another Rs 800 crore and may churn out a 250 cc bike at the next Auto Expo.In the pipeline, is to create a niche market in the 200 to 250 cc category. Yamaha is also exploring the possibility of hitting the market with high-end performance bikes.

    Inpsite of six tough, loss-ridden years, Japan’s Yamaha refuses to exit India. Denying the reports, Yamaha’s new Managing Director, T Ishikawa, better known as the man who turned around Yamaha’s Thai operations says the company is in the process of realigning its India strategy.  He was quoted as  “When I joined in Thailand, things were just like what they are in India. Cost and features is what they looked at then i introduced unique models , created niche market. All we did was tried to sell lifestyle not just product.”

    So, its official now, Yamaha is not exiting the Indian market. In fact, they have adopted a new startegy for Indian market – they are pumping in Rs 800 crore over the next four years and will ramp up the capacity from the existing 3 lakh units to 10 lakh units by 2010.

    While Yamaha is giving India another shot, the market is abuzz with rumours of a possibility of a Bajaj – Yamaha alliance. While the company has not denied a possible tie-up, the timing may be bit premature.

    The other company producing hi-end bikes in India is Hero Honda with its Karizma.

      Yamaha – Bajaj alliance is interesting…
      I always thought Yamahas and Hondas should bring their 200CC+ bikes instead of competing with TVSs and Bajajs in 125cc and 150cc categories…

      Actually, the strategy of introducing 100-125 cc bikes is to consolidate the position among the common masses, which has got a majority of market share;almost 88%. Its clear that common consumers do not want a fuel hungry-yet-sporty attractive bike, because petrol costs are higher in India and the price keeps on fluctuating. Besides, the Indian roads are a challenge for any tyre company. We dont want to see accidents due to tyres. The Indian traffic is one more biiig challenge. It would be an utter waste if you have a 400 cc bike, but you cannot ride it to the fullest, simply because, we do not have appropriate roads for it..

      So even if Yamaha has the capacity to bring out a 200 or even 400 cc bike, it dosent do so, fearing the loss of market to other players. Note -Yamaha is numero uno in MotoGP.

      On the other hand, we see Bajaj business flourishing in 150-180 cc catagory, but Bajaj bikes have got poor pollution control. But because its the only player in that feild, we feel its #1.

      It upsets me to see that the Government makes the import of 500 cc and above motorcycles, such an expensive proposition. One needs only to look at all the offerings in India to know that no Indian manufacturer is going to invest in a 300 cc and above bike anytime soon – they had not ventured out of the 100 cc – 150cc area for so many years until Bajaj brought out the Pulsar – then things changed for indian bikers.
      But why not permit (at a low duty) the import of bikes above 500 cc ?!?! Lower down i can understand shielding Indian manufacturers from Chinese competition or Japanese technology – but with certain criterion in place (quality etc cause one does not want crappy Chinese motorcycles flooding our markets in ANY cc ) why not let 500 cc bikes and above from Harley, Ducatti . Triumph, Bmw, Japanese 3 and other quality performance machines come in at a regular consumer goods duty of 25 % . This would make most high powered bikes available between the capacity of 500 cc – 900cc available to us in the 1.5 – 5 lakh bracket and would spring out a whole new market and industry

      If yamaha try to change their marketing strategy and after sale support from the delears definetly they can survive here.

      Absolutely. If a small player like Kinetic could import Knocked down units of Aquila and Comet why not Yamaha. Its just a question of willingness. When there is a will there is a way. Yamaha is still riding on the glory of the RX100 least realising they are losing some good custmers by not getting the latest offerings from the mother Company. YAMAHA please remember there is nothing like a good customer to get you the best publicity!

      Please get your act together and lets see some good bikes on the Indian roads. Hey, and don’t worry about the road conditions leave that to us.
