    Shame and Sadeness! 

    Today the Sanjay Dutt was released on bail…A criminal got out without any major hitch…the politicos backed a criminal Sanjay Dutt, like …Its a very shameful and sade day of Indian Judicial System…The pain of 1993 Mumbai Bomb blast victims is increased..What a humanless and poor example..!!

    All Hails to the pathetic dogs..!!!

    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…

    320 GB of terrorism – Exploring a terrorists hard disk 

    Appearances are deceiving. A meek looking and soft spoken individual turned out be an ace terrorist in the making, can one believe this fact easily? Nope..

    Todays paper had a news that explored the 320 GB ‘terrorist’ hard disk. The detailed stats are,

    1. The disk contained well over 12000 files,

    2. 5000 e-mails,

    3. Videos of Osama bin Laden(the head honcho of a well known terrorist firm)

    4. Jehadi messages with phone numbers

    5. Car bomb design !!!

    Incredible, there was no mention of if illegal mp3 files, p0rn videos, pirated software was present, nor the computer brand or OS..Pondering over that, a new concept stuck my mind..Google and major search engines can impress people by marking terrorist sites as ‘Caution : This site contents are not meant for cultured and civilized people‘, this warning will prevent people from visiting those sites, as it is Google maintains a list of spam and malware web pages, it will add a more feature to its popular search engine..Watch this incredible image for more details

    Google Search Engine from the future searching for corporate espionage, terrorists and more

    So, next time you want to befriend someone, please ask them for their hard disk for a detailed analysis, persistent storage sometimes can answer forbidden questions.

      Excellent blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any ideas? Bless you!

    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.

    Unwiring Pune – Indias first Wi-Max enabled city 

    Finally its there. The ‘Unwiring Pune’ project has kicked off.. This new wirefree access utilizes WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) and Wi-Fi (Wireless Fidelity) technologies to equip Pune with high-speed wireless internet. Wireless connectivity will allow people to access the Internet through a laptop or personal digital assistant (PDA), sans the need for cables. WiMAX is claimed to be the most cost-efficient way of building wireless data networks and a means to link people over large distances for “last mile” connectivity and bridging the digital divide. Taking a leap over Bangalore and Hyderabad, Pune will become the first Indian city to have a high-speed wireless Internet network even before the Centre’s much-awaited spectrum policy is announced. Initially Pune did had a demo of wireless internet access on Walking Plaza, but today, this project has finally taken off in grand style. Streaming, broadband access and that too with ease and convinience is sure to rock Pune. Imagine the power of Broadband without the hassles of wires..

    What more can I say? Its true that Pune was coming in news for all the wrong reasons(rave parties, orkut misuse etc), but now I think that this news makes one feel good….Similar kind of service is provided by the search engine giant Google in San Francisco. Now we are at par with the developed regions in some departments, if not all, but that shouldent stop us from being happy..

    Q. What is WiMAX?

    A. WiMAX (World Interoperability for Microwave Access), based on the IEEE 802.16 standard, is expected to enable true broadband speeds over wireless networks at a cost point to enable mass market adoption. WiMAX is the only wireless standard today that has the ability to deliver true broadband speeds and help make the vision of pervasive connectivity a reality.

    There are two main applications of WiMAX today: fixed WiMAX applications are point-to-multipoint enabling broadband access to homes and businesses, whereas mobile WiMAX offers the full mobility of cellular networks at true broadband speeds. Both fixed and mobile applications of WiMAX are engineered to help deliver ubiquitous, high-throughput broadband wireless services at a low cost.

    Intel currently plans to integrate WiMAX and WiFi into its notebook platforms based on Intel® Centrino® Mobile Technologies. Pairing the two will help bring users the ultimate in high-speed mobile broadband. Intel believes that WiMAX, with its technical and economic advantages, should help enable mainstream adoption of personal broadband.

    Moral of the story – Get a laptop having Intel Centrino Mobile Technology.. 😀

    Update : 23 April 2008 – No further development and this project seems to have lost momentum

      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….

      Are you sure this bike will be launched in India because Yamaha has already launched “Alba” another Libero variant? I am keeping my finger crossed, but Yamaha India has a reputation of being an utter disappointment.

      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 😀

      hi ,
      I dont believe Yamaha, especially when it parted away from Escorts, I think Escorts yamaha were doing better job than the current bunch of jokers in Yamaha India, Atleast Escorts-Yamaha gave us RX100,RD350,RX135,RXZ135 14 bhp bike…just compare it to what Yamaha India offered us
      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)

      I think they better with escort rather than japanese RD engineers and market study analyst

      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.”

      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.

      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

      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?

      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 thank all yamaha team for such threat and congratulate them

      Yamaha Rocks…
      This bike cant be compared to Pulsar as Yamaha is no.1 company in whole world. But it must be lauch with highly modified mono-suspension at rear instead of traditional double suspension. And then surely no comparison for this bike with any other Indian bikes.

      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 !!!

      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.

      But i am sure that “YAMAHA INDIA” will recover all it’s losses and the main thig is “THE COMPANY’S REPUTATION”

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 .
      Yamaha ka hai apna rutba .
      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

      With love and best wishes.
      Sarvesh phougat .

    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..

    Dish TV 

    5 reasons for avoiding satellite TV services in India esp Dish TV

    1. Dish TV is a utter crap service handled by a couple of jerks. Their STB’s (set top boxes) are manufactured in China and are of very inferior quality. One of our boxes has gone on a ride

    2. Their service is very bad. I dont know any other company which dosent provide TV services even after paying the alloted rent.

    3. The dealer and the company have got different opinion about the schemes and number of channel subscription.

    4. The movies on demand are of utter crap quality. They are mostly unwatched B or C grade Hindi movies which were thrown out of theaters in the 1 week itself.

    5. The customer care is handled by half paid blokes. One of them asked me to do a MASTER RESET and discovered that there is a ‘problem’ in their STB. Whoa….Its like formatting the disk and trying to find the stored data in there…and then saying ‘Oh, there might be a lil’ bug’.

    One positive thing about Dish TV is that free-to-air channels can be viewed on the STB, even if monthly rent isent paid on time(this can change soon). However, I dont need to clarify about the media quality of free-to-air channels. Its unspeakable.

    I think the TRAI has lost a chance to earn more bribe by leaving out the TV section. Pathetic dogs.

      Dear Friend,
      Just In reply of your view specially on Dish Tv. As i am using Dish TV for past 2 years and till there is no problem with services or with any instrument.
      1. As you said about STB i don’t think its of inferior quality else it will not work smoothly for last two years.

      2. About dealers and company everybody will have same information. As currentlythey have one great offer “FREE BHI ZYADA BHI” in this you will get 6 month free on 1st Connection and 12 Months on second.

      3. Movie on deman….they shown a lots of good movie as well like munna bhai, phir hera feri….and list goes on.

      4. About customer care till now i have faced any problem they resolved my queries very nicely.

      Further list of goodies are very large as compared to other key players in the market.

    The Digital (Anti)Social Networks 

    Digital (Anti) Social Networks

    Tired of getting friend requests from MySpace, TagWorld, Friendster, TypePad, Skype, AIM, Yahoo!, Chia Friend, LinkedIn, MSN, TextAmerica, Upcoming, Digg, Google, 30 Boxes, Second Life, Plaxo, Zooomr, ICQ, Flickr, LiveJournal, Dogster, dodgeball, Backwash, BuddyBridge, FriendFan, Classmates, Buzznet, ReferNet… not to mention Friend Surfer, friendsand, Friends of Friends, friendsbay.de, Friends of Friends, Friends Reunited, Friendoo, Friendset, Friendsync, Friendity, Friendzy… and a million others… Tyrone J. Walrustitty put the following text on his Geocities homepage:

    Dear “Friend,” I don’t want to join [insert Web site name here]. I hate social networks. Hate ‘em! I’m tired of you sending these damn invitations to me. If you do it again, I’m going to stop being your friend – because inviting me to yet another social network that doesn’t interest me simply isn’t a very friendly thing to do. If I’m already on the social networks that you’re already on, I have no problem in connecting with you there. As it stands, however, my tolerance for social networks is turning me anti-social. If I add one more social network to my social network network, I’m truly going to go social on yo’ ass.

    Based on this simple idea, Tyrone launched Hermitster, raised $8.2 billion in funding, and sold the property to Rupert Murderock for well over a trillion dollars.

    Umm…after observing the bad effects of tools like Orkut, Myspace, Ryze(Does it exist ?), I guess its time now to quit the ‘digital’ social networking tools…

    Pune rural police crack a rave party 

    Update on 6 Oct 2008

    Vishwas Nangre Patil  on early Monday raided a rave party at a pub in Juhu area and detained 240 young men and women after seizing a large quantity of drugs.

    According to a police official, the raid at Mumbai 72 Degree East, yielded over 100 tablets of ecstasy drugs and other narcotics like heroine, LSD and cocaine.

    The official said that a filmmaker is one of the co-owners of the pub. That film maker is Mr Shakti Kapoor.

    Among the detained include son of a Bollywood actor, 40 young women and a couple of foreign nationals.

    Eight drug dealers who were present on the premises have been arrested.

    अमली पदार्थांच्या नशेत व मद्याच्या धुंदीत “रेव्ह पार्टी’मध्ये झिंगलेल्या सुमारे २८९ जणांना जिल्हा पोलिसांनी आज पहाटे सिंहगड पायथ्याजवळ छापा घालून पकडले. त्यात प्रामुख्याने तरुण-तरुणींसह उच्चभ्रूंचा समावेश असून, तीन परदेशी “डीजे’ व पाच परदेशी नागरिकांचाही या कारवाईत समावेश आहे. …..
    खास धूळवडीनिमित्त आयोजित करण्यात आलेल्या या “पार्टी’ची निमंत्रणे एका संकेतस्थळाद्वारे; तसेच “ऑर्कुट’ व “एसएमएस’द्वारे पोचविण्यात आली होती.

    दिल्ली, मुंबई, अहमदाबाद, बंगळूर, चेन्नई, चंडीगड, ठाण्यासह पुण्यातील विद्यार्थी, “आयटी’ व्यावसायिक, बीपीओ व कॉल सेंटरचे कर्मचारी, दोन हवाई सुंदरी, धनाढ्य व्यावसायिक, खासगी कंपन्यांतील बड्या अधिकाऱ्यांची मुले आदी पार्टीत सहभागी झाली होती. अनेक जण या पार्टीसाठी विमानाने आल्याचे त्यांच्याकडे सापडलेल्या तिकिटांवरून आढळले. पोलिसांनी ताब्यात घेतलेल्यांमध्ये प्रामुख्याने युवकांचा भरणा आहे. त्याशिवाय पुणे, पिंपरी-चिंचवड परिसर व ठाणे परिसरातील परप्रांतीय विद्यार्थीही मोठ्या संख्येने आले होते. पोलिसांनी पहाटे ताब्यात घेतल्यावर सकाळी दहानंतर त्यांची नशा उतरली व नंतरच त्यांची नावे समजू शकली. पोलिसांनी एकूण २५१ तरुण व २९ तरुणींना ताब्यात घेतले आहे.

    ही पार्टी आयोजित केल्याच्या आरोपावरून एकूण नऊ जणांना अटक करण्यात आली आहे. सूत्रधार ध्रुव पवन कौशल (वय २२, रा. निवेदिता टेरेस, वानवडी) व परमजितसिंग हरचरणसिंग ब्रार (वय २७, रा. नॅन्सी गार्डन, वानवडी) यांना अटक झाली आहे. जागामालक रामदास चंद्रकांत हगवणे (रा. डोणजे), शरद मुलोत शंकर (रा. अंधेरी, मुंबई), शिवेंद्रू प्रभातकुमार गुप्ता, स्टीफन एर्विन मुल्लर, ख्रिस्तोफर (दोघे रा. जर्मनी), शिलार्ण अच्युत वझे (वय २४, रा. जुहू), सिमृत हरीश सिल्मली (वय २४, रा. वरळी, मुंबई) यांना अमली पदार्थांच्या विक्री व त्यासाठी मदत केल्याच्या आरोपावरून अटक झाली आहे. या “पार्टी’मागे संघटित टोळी कार्यान्वित आहे का, याचाही पोलिस तपास करीत आहेत. पॅलेस्टाईनचे तीन, जर्मनीचे दोन व इराणचे तीन नागरिक या पार्टीत सापडले.

    घटनास्थळावरून पोलिसांनी १७ चिलीम, १०० ग्रॅम चरस, अमली पदार्थांच्या “कॅप्सूल’ व पावडर, ३०० टीन बिअर, म्युझिक सिस्टीम व मोठ्या प्रमाणात अमली पदार्थांचा साठा जप्त केला आहे. काही अमली पदार्थांची रासायनिक प्रयोगशाळेतून खात्री झाल्यावर ते कोणत्या प्रकारचे आहेत हे निष्पन्न होईल, अशी माहिती जिल्हा अधीक्षक विश्‍वास नांगरे-पाटील व अतिरिक्त अधीक्षक प्रवीण पाटील यांनी दिली. पुणे पोलिसांच्या अमली पदार्थविरोधी पथकाचे प्रमुख निरीक्षक शेषराव सूर्यवंशी यांनी आर्थिक गुन्हे विभागाचे उपायुक्त सुनील फुलारी यांना ही घटना कळविली. श्री. फुलारी यांनी श्री. नांगरे यांच्याशी काल रात्री संपर्क साधला.

    श्री. नांगरे, श्री. पाटील यांच्यासह १५ अधिकारी, दहा महिला कर्मचारी व ८० कर्मचाऱ्यांच्या पथकाने साध्या वेशात पहाटे दोन वाजून दहा मिनिटांनी छापा घातला. छापा घालण्यापूर्वी तयारीचा भाग म्हणून पोलिस वेशांतर करून सुमारे अर्धा तास “पार्टी’मध्ये सहभागी झाले. त्यानंतर सर्व पथकांनी एकाच वेळी कारवाई केली. त्या वेळी ४५ मोटारी व २९ दुचाकीही पोलिसांनी ताब्यात घेतल्या.

    या पार्टीसाठी प्रवेश शुल्क होते. प्रवेशासाठी “कार्ड’ तयार करण्यात आले होते. एक संकेतस्थळ, ऑर्कुट व “एसएमएस’द्वारे गेल्या आठवड्यापासून संपर्क साधून पार्टीचे आमंत्रण दिले जात होते. ताब्यात घेतलेल्या सर्वांना सात पोलिस वाहनांतून जिल्हा अधीक्षक कार्यालयात आणण्यात आले. छापा घालून पोलिस परतत असताना पहाटेपर्यंत या पार्टीसाठी लोक येत होते; मात्र छाप्याची माहिती कळताच त्यांची वाहने माघारी फिरत होती.

    या प्रकरणी हवेली पोलिस ठाण्यात गुन्हा दाखल झाला आहे. ताब्यात घेतलेल्या व्यक्तींवर अमली पदार्थांचे सेवन केल्याच्या आरोपावरून गुन्हा दाखल करण्यात येणार आहे, असे श्री. नांगरे यांनी सांगितले.

    “शायनी’ निसटली
    या पार्टीमध्ये “शायनी’ नावाची महिला “कॅलिफोर्निया ड्रॉप्स’च्या दीड हजार बाटल्या (आंतरराष्ट्रीय बाजारपेठेतील किंमत तीन कोटी रुपये) घेऊन येणार आहे, असे पोलिसांना समजले होते. त्यासाठी पोलिसांनी सापळा रचला होता; मात्र पोलिसांचा छापा पडल्याचे समजल्यावर ती महिला तिकडे फिरकली नाही. तिच्यावर आयर्लंडमध्ये अमली पदार्थ विक्रीचे तीन गुन्हे आहेत, अशी माहिती समजली असून, त्याबाबत सध्या खातरजमा सुरू असल्याचे पोलिसांनी सांगितले.

    “रेव्ह पार्टी’ म्हणजे काय?
    एका ठराविक ठिकाणी विशिष्ट दिवशी “पार्टी’ आयोजित केली जाते. शुल्क आकारून फक्त निमंत्रित किंवा काही ठराविक व्यक्तींनाच प्रवेश दिला जातो. त्या ठिकाणी दारू, बिअरची खुलेआम विक्री होते; तसेच अमली पदार्थही विकले जातात. या पार्ट्यांत येणारा वर्ग प्रामुख्याने अमली पदार्थांचे सेवन करण्यासाठी येतो. त्या वेळी “डीजे’च्या मदतीने संगीताची धूम सुरू असते. रात्री अकराला सुरू होणारी पार्टी सकाळी सातपर्यंत चालते. अशा प्रकारच्या पार्ट्या, दिल्ली, मुंबईत नियमितपणे होतात. मुंबईतील “अक्‍सा’ बीच त्यासाठी कुख्यात आहे. पुण्यातही सिंहगड पायथा परिसरात नुकतीच अशी एक पार्टी झाल्याची माहिती पोलिसांना मिळाली आहे.

    पुण्याला अमली पदार्थांचा विळखा?

    • गेल्या वर्षी ऑगस्टमध्ये ऑस्ट्रेलियाला पाठविण्यासाठीचे दोन कोटींचे चरस पुण्यात जप्त झाले होते.
    • जानेवारी २००७ मध्ये टेक्‍सासला पाठविण्यासाठीचे अडीच कोटींचे हेरॉइन पुण्यातून जप्त झाले होते.
    • त्याशिवाय पणजीमध्ये नुकतेच पंधरा कोटी रुपयांचे हेरॉइन पकडण्यात आले. ते पुणे- पणजी बसमधून जप्त करण्यात आले होते.
    • पुण्यातील काही पब, कोरेगाव पार्क भागातील हॉटेले व उच्चभ्रूंची ऊठबस असलेली हॉटेले, क्‍लबमध्ये अमली पदार्थांच्या खरेदी-विक्रीचे व्यवहार होत असल्याच्या पोलिसांकडे तक्रारी आल्या आहेत.
    • केंद्रीय उत्पादनशुल्क विभागाच्या अधिकाऱ्यांच्या मतानुसार, अमली पदार्थांची पुण्यातून मोठ्या प्रमाणात वाहतूक होते. मुंबई, बंगळूर व दिल्लीसाठी येथून “माल’ जातो व “येतो’. त्यासाठी सध्या “कुरिअर’ व्यवसायासह अन्य ठिकाणी अधिकाऱ्यांचे लक्ष. पुणे हे “ट्रान्स्पोर्ट स्टेशन’.

    पुण्याचे बदलते स्वरूप
    पुण्याचे स्वरूप बदलत आहे, त्याचे प्रतिबिंब या पार्टीत दिसून आले. शिक्षण, नोकरी, व्यवसाय आदींसाठी परराज्यांतून येथे आलेले विद्यार्थी, युवक बेकायदेशीर कृत्यांत सहभागी होत असल्याचे आढळून येत आहे. माहिती तंत्रज्ञान कंपन्या, कॉल सेंटर, बीपीओ, खासगी कंपन्या येथे काम करणाऱ्या युवकांना मोठ्या प्रमाणात वेतन मिळते. पैसे भरपूर मिळाल्यावर काही जण वाईट सवयींकडे आकृष्ट होतात, असे दिसून येत असल्याचे पुणे पोलिसांच्या आर्थिक गुन्हे विभागाचे उपायुक्त सुनील फुलारी यांनी नमूद केले.

    If we observe the list, we will find a number of people well inside their thirties. Fast growing IT and service industry has no doubt increased the income of many, but at the same time, has caused the ‘evil’ elements of quick money to rise..The number of girls caught have raised various social issues that need to be addressed and resolved soon.

    Actually, the disturbing fact found in this crackdown was the use of digital social networking tool – Orkut, which was used as a means of communication between peer groups. According to me, now its high time that Google bring an Indianized version of Orkut example – http://www.orkut.co.in which will function mostly for Indian users and will comply by Indian legal codes.

    A brief Update March 7, 2007 – Majority of the convicts have been bailed out, while some have been booked under illegal drug trafficing and various other charges. It was not very good to see that arrogant parents and their equeally arrogant idiots were blaming the ‘media’ for the damage..Hmph…what a bunch of jerks…

    The latest in this case on 7 April 07

    रेव्ह पार्टी’मध्ये अटक करण्यात आलेल्या २८८ जणांपैकी २४९ जणांनी अमली पदार्थांचे सेवन केल्याचे त्यांच्या वैद्यकीय तपासणी अहवालात जिल्हा पोलिसांना आढळून आले आहे. एका जाहीर कार्यक्रमात जिल्हा पोलिस अधीक्षक विश्‍वास नांगरे पाटील यांनी याबाबत माहिती दिली. ते म्हणाले, “”रेव्ह पार्टी’मध्ये सहभागी होऊन अमली पदार्थांचे सेवन केल्याच्या आरोपावरून चार मार्चला सिंहगड पायथ्याजवळ २८८ जणांना अटक झाली होती. त्यातील आठ-नऊजण अमली पदार्थ विक्रेते होते. त्यामुळे त्यांच्यावर गंभीर स्वरूपाच्या कलमांन्वये गुन्हा दाखल करण्यात आला आहे.”त्यावेळी पकडण्यात आलेल्या युवक-युवतींनी अमली पदार्थांचे सेवन केले आहे किंवा नाही, याची खात्री करण्यासाठी त्यांची विशेष वैद्यकीय तपासणी करण्यात आली होती. त्याचे अहवाल आज मिळाले आहेत. त्यानुसार २८८ जणांपैकी २४९ जणांनी अमली पदार्थांचे सेवन केले होते, असे आढळून आले आहे. त्यांच्यावर कायद्यानुसार पुढील कारवाई होईल, असे त्यांनी सांगितले.

    The drug test gave positive results for 249 convicts out of the 288 arrested. Thats quite high percentage. Hmm..tough deal, lifes isent a joke. 😛

      Yes, definitely this mass communication(orkut) was used wrongly.And definitely muddled our pune. But we can’t held any site responsible for this as every thing have two faces like coin. Its only upto people how they are going to make use of this? And then only the endresult can tell whether it proves a boon or a curse for the society.

      Harshad, Rave Party is wrong english, theres no such thing as a Rave Party. It is a Rave and something like a party. Anyway its sad to know that you think the parents are a bunch of Jerks, because if you do some research on what the Media and Police found 1500 bottles of phenyl hydrocholride? do you know what that is….its no drug, check the contents of a bottle called ikul available at any medical shop, its no drug.

      im refering to the article that can be found here fractalenlightenment.blogspot.com/2007/03/holi-festival-of-spring.html

      Another thing, when the whole of India is drinking bhang, which is made out of ganja and is illegal, the government chooses to arrest 200 kids who are doing the same thing.

      So next time Harshad, put in some research before you give us your opinion.

      Maybe you need to exercise your grey cells a lil’ more and observe that the 250-9 convicts were real jerks..the ignorant jerks, who do not have a common sense and beleive that they are innocent..

      They arent innocent..they are ignorant. Ignorance is a deadly crime. The ignorance of attending a party which wasent legal..ignorance of not knowing who the organizer was and what was his background..ignorance of the fact that the place where the party was supposed to be conducted is an agriculture land, where any other bussiness,other then farming is banned by law??

      Ha..this is a best exmple I have ever seen having so many ignorant jerks around..Serves them good. 😀

      Your statement in the previous comment – ‘Another thing, when the whole of India is drinking bhang, which is made out of ganja and is illegal, the government chooses to arrest 200 kids who are doing the same thing.’ is based upon completely primitive assumptions, which may not be true in all cases of special reason.

      I observed that there is a certain forum, full of unworthy apes, who have put on loud and time wasting arguments trying to explain me the stuff of rave party. Who cares to read all the crap??

      However, its interesting to note and observe that there are so many people in this world still living in a stone age primitive mentality, seeking out solace in drugs and a crap termed as music to escape or get a break from the real world problems…Scared of reality and afraid to face work pressure Whatever… Mentally retarded jerks. 😛

      Now for the final thing
      1. Post up comment that shows your ignorance,idiotness and arrogance, it will get marked as spam the next moment.
      2. Send me foolish mails, I will definately mark it as spam.

      Banning / Suppressing orkut is not a solution. Things don’t work that way. The right solution is to punish the drug consumers and peddlers themselves, heavily. The justification for that is simple. If orkut goes down, some other site will come up. What will you then? Ban it too? But if people know that there are serious consequences to drug consumption and peddling, they will keep away from it.

      Also, I will agree with the bhang point – allowing its consumption its wrong. Just because lots of people consume bhang, doesn’t mean that it is correct.

      Several examples where people think that when everyone does something, it must be right-
      a) Sati (sure, before it was banned by the Brits, many thought it was right – now we all understand why it was wrong)
      b) Sealing drive in Delhi (just because everyones building illegaly, doesn’t mean that its correct)

      We must identify what the real problem is and not get carried away in hype and rhetoric. For example, the real problem aren’t the plastic bags littering our streets. The real problem is the correct disposal of these bags. Banning plastics was the quick (read stupid) solution.

      Finally the right to express oneself is one of the rights we value the most.

      I agree with Rohit Bhai…. one hundred percent!

      In the similar lines, since evry body now thinks that drug consumers should be punished, it does not mean that IT IS RIGHT 🙂

      the right to express oneself is one of the rights we value the most…EXACTLY.
      “The right to do one’s chosen action, provided that its not going to affect anybody else’s lyf” is also one such rights. Wat say Harshad Bhai…?

      How many are affected by this rave? How many have inconveniences becoz of this rave?

      It’s a red herring on the cops part to raid the rave when there are several illegal activities to be addresses in mumbai-pune circle !!!

      “The right to do one’s chosen action, provided that its not going to affect anybody else’s lyf”

      In many cases that would be true. ‘Others’ would mind their own business. In this case, it does affect ‘other’ people’s lives. Drug addicts become slaves to their habit. When they need a dose, they need it bad. If the urge isn’t satisfied, they may go to any extent to fulfill it. Consumption of drugs can become the cause of violence, due to disinhibition. Hence, it is not as simple as minding one’s own business.

      “How many are affected by this rave? How many have inconveniences becoz of this rave?”

      Plenty. Just knowing that there are drug peddlers around would be enough to worry parents of teenagers. After all, which parent wants to see their child throw away his / her life for drugs? If India is shining, teenagers in India should take the opportunity and ride the wave.

      “It’s a red herring on the cops part to raid the rave when there are several illegal activities to be addresses in mumbai-pune circle !!!”

      – Another case of “Its OK, others are doing it too.”. An illegal activity is illegal. Period. It needs to be checked and punished.

      Tell me, at what point do we actually demand change?

      I dont understand people always talk about banning the sites, internet and source of information. Why dont they understand, there are lots of good websites and communities available on the internet and orkut. Do they think, they are god?

      Remember one thing, world changes always, there are bad things also and good things both. Bad things will go and good things will always remain.

      That is the life. so be patients. Banning orkut is not solution.

      i hear comparisons between bhang, as you put it, and a rave party and i am dismayed. firstly, bhang is not made from ganja as someone sems to think. it is ganja. or cannabisativa to be precise.
      secondly, it is not a hallucinogen, it is not habit forming. it has a pharmocological efect that crosses the blood brain barrier intact, but causes no physiological dependence. something like lsd. therefore, it does not qualify as a drug. psychotropic substance, yes. drug? no.
      and lastly, have any of you ever tried it?

      don’t oppose them either. the way i figure it, if the kids wanna get high, let them. all this talk of upholding the glorious indian culture and law and order doesn’t sit well with me.
      after all, cultures evolve and evolve all the time. and ours is just one of many thousands that have flourished and will die out, eventually. and the law, though a means of enforcing order is a tool of repression, after all.
      so no, i’m not, so to speak, in your camp. i’m an opposer. a ditracter. a traitor, because i think that for the most part, india is a godawful country. just as awful as any other. i am, a hippie. a tree hugger. a gay-lover. a pacifict. a nihilist. a marijuana enthusiast. a cultist, if you will. and only a rave party non-supporter, cause i’ve never been to one. if i did, i’ll likely support it. and above all someone, who doesn’t recognise the authority of the laws of this country or any other to curtail my freedoms.

      Mr harshad,i accept the fact that drug abuse is a crime.but let me tell you that bhaang is not a drug and consumption of bhaang is socially accepted i india.and about the rave party,many innocent guys and girls were punished just due to mere physical presence.i dont think by punishing them is the solution 2 the problem.that was a publicity done by the police that they do their duty,but by raising the issue and flashing the names is a stupidity.what about those who din consume anything but still they are suffering?its not ignorance,let me tell u that.instead of discussing about something creative in life,we give value to such topics.and punishing them is not how they learn a lesson….coz each individual was gone there with different intentions.SO MR.JOSHI BETTER TRY DISCUSSING SOMETHING EFFECTIVE THAN SUCH CRAP…

      U consider urself havin morale values…just for an example consider the Taliban or SIMI or such anti social elements.They consider themselves as a moral brigade.That is because these group of religious fanatics and bigots consider themselves to be but they arent! U r just like them.Tryin to prove ur point through cheap activities.For example the long big crap u have posted up.
      U also said that these people caught were not innocent but ignorant.Killing,raping,looting are crimes that are committed not because of mere ignorance but because of a mentality that is deep rooted in the criminal.Wat a young person has to suffer for being ignorant?? Names in the newspapers,on the internet,dont knw wat ndps laws on them,most of all their carrers.I can only ask u to be constructive on the issue.Thriving on a story like a maggot or a scavenger wont change anythin for good.U add no meaning to the word humanity.

      @ Vandit, Kapil, Nikhil

      Your IP address says that maybe three of you are related in some way..


      Some countries manufacture drugs and distribute them to mafias who in turn sell them at exotic prices to others.

      This way, the drug manufacturing countries and mafia run their economy, in a way threatening World peace, culture and society.

      After reading all what I have read above – I am inspired that there is still some sanity left in people like you who still believe in a cause that is outside of them.

      That the ‘pursuit of happiness’ is not the only end to one’s life and that people like you are willing to take on the ulterior forces in our present society is a heartening wake-up call to all those out there who think that admonishing you is a quick ticket to glory. I am truly inspired and empowered by your stand and more importantly, say in the matter.

      I look forward to hear back from you.

    Police planning to ban Orkut in India 

    According to media reports, the Pune police is in full swing to ban Orkut, the Google owned digital social networking tool following its controversial communities and its probable role in anti social activities.

    To a certain extent, I feel that there is a ‘real’ need in maintaining Orkut. Given its liberal policies, a madman can create real mess on Orkut by creating hate topics, insultive discussions and also spoil images of well known personalities. Its sort of a free ground for cheap and unconstructive publicity. And after the recent blasts, things are turning pretty hot.

    But is banning a solution to this problem?

    Nope. Given Googles brand influence, I dont think it will be practically possible. Even if the police dont succumb to the influence of any media, there still will be a wide disarray among the ‘anti-social’ elements in the society. Only China is the state which officially monitors Google content. So much so the my blog – The First Tones of Freedom cannot be viewed on any Chinese ISP, sole reason being the word – Freedom, I preach about the importance of Freedom and Liberty in life..

    Anyway – A middle path should be adopted and Orkut should make use of a better ‘Report as Bogus’ system. I mean its ridiculous the way things are handled as of now. Things will be clear in a few days.

      This can’t be possible to ban orkut for such a stupid reason. Instead of doing it, pune police should contact orkut to remove such community from it rather than permanently baning the orkut.

      Banning Orkut just because anti-social activities are being carried out is totally ridiculous. Why not our Govt rather ask Google to monitor the content being posted there?? If measures have to be taken so crud, then everything right from emails to blogs to chats must be closed!

      That way our nation will be soon back to technology “zeroes” rather than the “zeroes and ones”! ORKUT SHOULD NOT BE BANNED!

    • Harshad Joshi 5:13 am on June 12, 2007 Permalink | Reply

      I dont think that orkut will be banned throughout India, as its virtually impossible. Had we been living in China, where the government is very cruel, I guess this move would have given some results.

      However, in many companies, the employees are not allowed to use Orkut and many private companies ban Orkut during office hours.

      The motive is to gain the fabulous sensuous pleasures & Rewards ( 72 virgins & all luxuries etc for each ) promised for them & their families too in the KORAN. To know more about it refer to the celebrated PENGUIN translation of Koran by NJ Dawood, or any other version or refer to Google. See Chapters(Sura/Verses) 56/(12 to 40),55/( 54 to 56),55/ (72to-74), 76/ (12 to 22), .This is the easiest way for dropouts, drifters, idlers & terminally ill to pass off in great glory as Martyrs & also benefit their families who only rejoice & never grieve for their death . Now even educated youths are being brainwashed to be more religious & do their” duty” by using sophisticated methods like- food & gas poisoning, nuclear blasts, aircraft sabotage, ship attacks,car bombing etc. to gain these sensuous rewards in Paradise .Thus most of them are silent members of ‘SLEEPER CELLS ‘ ready to act on their own. All muslims are not Jihadis but ALL Jihadis have proved as muslims. Is this not true ? Worldwide publicity should be given for this despicable hidden motive & the Radical Fundamentalist leaders must be made to denounce & deny these acts & issue a FATWA warning that their families will be outcasted , deported & lynched. They will never do it –as they are a party to it & are actually rejoicing after the killings.—-Your comments please—

      I don’t feel Orkut should be banned in a democratic country like India. Banning Orkut is not a permanent solution to this problem, as the controversial postings can be made through other social networking sites and blogs too. The only difference is that, Orkut is a bit more popular.

      There should be an official government organization to keep track of the content being displayed in different websites. The general public should be able to contact this organization through digital means, probably through website and complain about the content in websites, anonymously. If this government body finds that the content is inappropriate, they should contact the website owners and demand to remove the content within a feasible deadline time. If its not removed even after this, then it is reasonable to consider banning as an option….

      You should lodge a complaint against the profile by consulting the police cyber cell. Next time you are giving a real example of Orkut exploits, make sure that you dont give away personal details, so many people read the first tones of freedom, I cant say how many of them are crooked, its better we learn to protect ourself.

      I think Orkut needs to be banned, atleast some communities and profiles definately..

      Guys! Banning Orkut will not actually solve the problem. Yes of course it can solve problems on temporary basis. Ultimately education is something that can solve the problem.

      People should attain maturity in things that they do. For which we need to be given the right education. Education does not start in schools or colleges, but starts at home. Parents should be paying attention to their children. Their activities need to be monitored and corrective measures should be taken.

      This may sound like a long term project, however this can solve 99% of the problem.

      Is Orkut a problem? or is it the people who are using it?

Blatant exposure to such material can do more harm than good. Not only Police should take steps in this direction but even we as parents and social groups should take steps in this direction. Sooner the better it would be. Not only orkut but rediff qna is another site where lot of pornographic material is being posted. Issue should be taken up for this site as well.

    Dont mess up with the kids. 

    Small kids, children are Gods most awesome creations. They posses an excellant mind that watches everything all around with great curiosity and innocence. We oft take some things for granted, but its a fact – Kids are the smartest bunch of individuals, who can take you by surprise, almost at the time when you least expect.

    A few facts will clear up the concept.

    7 reasons not to mess with children.

    1. A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales.

    The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat was very small.

    The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale.

    Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human; it was physically impossible.

    The little girl said, “When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah”.

    The teacher asked, “What if Jonah went to hell?”

    The little girl replied, “Then you ask him”.

    2 . A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they were drawing. She would occasionally walk around to see each child’s work.

    As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was.

    The girl replied, “I’m drawing God.”

    The teacher paused and said, “But no one knows what God looks like.”

    Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl: replied, “They will in a minute.”

    3. A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds.

    After explaining the commandment to “honor” thy Father and thy Mother, she asked, “Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?”

    Without missing a beat one little boy (the oldest of a family) answered, “Thou shall not kill.”

    4. One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head.
    She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, “Why are some of your hairs white, Mom?”

    Her mother replied, “Well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white.”

    The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said, “Momma, how come ALL of grandma’s hairs are white?”

    5. The children had all been photographed, and the teacher was trying to persuade them each to buy a copy of the group picture.

    “Just think how nice it will be to look at it when you are all grown up and say, ‘There’s Jennifer, she’s a lawyer,’ or ‘That’s Michael, He’s a doctor.’

    A small voice at the back of the room rang out, “And there’s the teacher, she’s dead.”

    6. A teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of the blood. Trying to make the matter clearer, she said, “Now, class, if I stood on my head, the blood, as you know, would run into it, and I would turn red in the face.”
    “Yes,” the class said.

    “Then why is it that while I am standing upright in the ordinary position the blood doesn’t run into my feet?”

    A little fellow shouted, “Cause your feet ain’t empty.”

    7. The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray: “Take only ONE. God is watching.”

    Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies.

    A child had written a note, “Take all you want. God is watching the apples.”

    Happy Birthday Orkut 

    Orkuts third birthday

    Today is Orkuts 3rd birthday.

    The Beginning
    Orkut was quietly launched on January 30, 2004 by Google, the search engine company.
    Orkut Büyükkökten, a Turkish software engineer, developed it as an independent project while working at Google (required by its policy). Some discomfort with this exists among users and potential users of orkut, especially since Google’s other noteworthy product of 2004, the Web-based email client Gmail, had servers scan emails for keywords in order to deliver advertisements targeted at them, which sparked an idea that Google was “reading your email”.

    While previously working for Affinity Engines, he had developed a similar system, InCircle, intended for use by university alumni groups. In late June 2004, Affinity Engines filed suit against Google, claiming that Büyükkökten and Google based orkut on inCircle code. The allegation is based on the presence of 9 identical bugs in orkut that also exist in InCircle. Originally, the orkut community was felt to be elite, because its membership is by invitation only. However, at the end of July 2004 orkut surpassed the 1,000,000 member mark, and at the end of September it surpassed the 2,000,000 mark.

    While the intended invitation method was e-mail between two acquaintances, invitations to orkut are obtainable via the web with a bit of diligence or eBay, just like Gmail invites.
    Orkut’s use as a social tool is complex, because various people frequently try to add strangers to their own pool of friends, more often than not just to increase the number indicating their number of friends next to their name in their profile. Many “add-me” communities exist, solely for this purpose. A large number of bogus, cloned, fake, invisible and “orphaned” profiles also exist.
    As of today; there are
    41,282,563 users on orkut.

    Speed and reliability
    Orkut often is unavailable, producing a “Bad, bad server. ” error message — behavior consistent with that of an underpowered server under heavy load. The outages tend to occur during the day hours in the Americas, home of more than 80% of orkut users.

    Iranian censorship
    Orkut was very popular in Iran, but the website is blocked by the government. As they say, this is due to national security issues, as orkut users have the ability to spread messages rapidly, but the government says it’s due to Islamic ethical issues about dating and match making. To get around this block, sites such as “orkutproxy.xom” (now defunct) were made for Iranian users. Other websites such as Groups likw Yahoo, Google have communities dedicated to receiving updates on the newest location of Iran’s orkut proxy. Though it was once possible to bypass governmental blockage of orkut, the site has closed its HTTPS pages on all anonymous proxies. Now it is almost impossible for ordinary users to visit this site inside Iran.

    In August 2006 UAE followed the footsteps of Iran in blocking the site.

    Demographics of orkut
    The latest information can be obtained from here.

    Some prominent controversies faced by Orkut in these 3 years.

    1. Recently an Indian girl had filed a complaint against a boy who put up her fake profile along with abuses and profanities. But now its gone a step above a notice was issued by the Aurangabad bench of the Bombay High Court to Google’s social networking site Orkut, for spreading “hatred against India.” The Court responded to a public interest litigation (PIL) that took exception to a “We hate India’ community in Orkut. The community, set up by a *Russian, Miraslov Stankovic, states that it is against all those people who are against Pakistan. The community is about having a group of people who have enmity against India because of its oppressive and hostile approach, it says in the description of the community. The number of members of the community as on Thursday was 91, down from 100 the previous day.

    2. A case has been filed against ‘Orkut’ website at Pune for deplorable denigration of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and Lord Rama. An assurance was given by the police to investigate the matter. The case has been filed under article 67 of Information Technology Act and article 505 of Indian Penal Code.

    Actually, whatever may be the problems, its certain now that social networking groups have a long way to go. Lets wish Orkut a happy birthday and hope that it maintains a clean environment.

    A very popular story about Orkut Büyükkökten is circulated on Orkut social networking site through mails and scraps. Its something like the follows

    A guy lost his girlfriend in a train accident,but the gal’s name nowhere appeared in the dead list. This guy grew up n became IT technical architect in his late 20?s, achievement in itself!!He hired developers from the whole globe and plan to make a software where he could search for his gf through the web.Things went as planned n he found her, after losing millions of dollars and 3 long years!!

    It was time to shut down the search operation, when the CEO of Google had a word with this guy n took over this application.This Software made a whopping 1 billion dollars profit in its first year,which we today know as ORKUT.

    The guy’s name is ORKUT BUYUKKOTEN.Yes its named after him only.Today he is paid a hefty sum by Google for the things we do like scrapping.He is expected to b the richest person by 2009.ORKUT BUYUKKOTEN today has 13 assistants to monitor his scrapbook & 8 to monitor his friends-list. He gets around 20,000 friend-requests a day & about 85,000 scraps!!!

    Some more cool facts about him

    He gets $12 from Google when every person registers to this website.

    • He also gets $10 when you add somebody as a friend.
    • He gets $8 when your friend’s friend adds you as a friend & gets $6 if

    anybody adds you as friend in the resulting chain.

    • He gets $5 when you scrap somebody & $4 when somebody scraps you.
    • He also gets $200 for each photograph you upload on Orkut.
    • He gets $2.5 when you add your friend in the crush-list or in the hot-list.
    • He gets $2 when you become somebody’s fan.
    • He gets $1.5 when somebody else becomes your fan.
    • He even gets $1 every time you logout of Orkut.
    • He gets $0.5 every time you just change your profile-photograph.
    • He also gets $0.5 every time you read your friend’s scrap-book & $0.5 every time

    you view your friend’s friend-list.

    “Moral of the story”?

    I dont know if its real or unreal, its very much of a bollywood type thing. Who knows?? 😛

    Dont believe me?? Well..you can take a look at Orkut Büyükkökten  (Orkuts) official profile on Orkut.. 😀

    Here is a list of Orkut Büyükkökten s research papers

    Dont get sade if you are not able to make any sense out of any of this material. I tell ye – You are not alone.. 😛


    • Not sure of origins. Information based on the profile.

      Bush goes ballistic about other countries being evil and dangerous, because they have weapons of mass destruction. But, he insists on building up even a more deadly supply of nuclear arms right here in the US. What do you think? Is killing thousands of innocent civilians okay when you are doing a little government makeover?
      What happened to us, people? When did we become such lemmings?
      We have lost friends and influenced no one. No wonder most of the world thinks we suck. Thanks to what george bush has done to our country during the past three years, we do!

    Rahul Roy wins Bigg Boss 2006-2007 

    Rahul Roy got 5 million rupees as a prize when he won the reality show Bigg Boss on 27 Jan. Bigg Boss is a reality show known for high emotional drama and various controversies involving clebraties, the latest one being from its UK edition Bigg Brother.

    It should be noted that Rahul Roy taught a number of things that are very useful for managers.

    1. Remain cool no matter what the situation might be. Its certain that it will revert to normal even though it may take some time to get some things setelled.

    2. Avoid conflicts. Once a task has been gives, concentrate on how to accompalish it. Do not worry about its consequence.

    3. Just dont get into personal complexities of any person. In large organizations, this is the biggest challenge wherein the manager has to handle so many people from different background. People do take their personalities to work and tend to associate it with  their success or loss.

    4. Believe in yourself. The only ultimate thing thats gonna provide you with strength and success.

    5. Do not take half chances. A firm decision avoids future trouble and controversies.

    6. Dont speak the truth if its gonna hurt you. Remember. There are no secret rooms. No one, but the eyes of Truth are always watching and hearing you. Learn the skill of maintaining silence.

    7. Finally, put your money where your mouth is. Dont get distracted by external disturbances. Its bussiness, and everyone’s want to to win, maybe by fair or unfair means. You too do the same..This behavious can be termed as hypocritic at times, but then this is the way the world goes..

    How do we rise above racism towards respect and tolerance in society? 

    Political movements in certain parts of the world openly expound racist ideas. The dissemination of racist ideas is tolerated in the name of freedom of expression. The Internet is misused to propagate racial hatred. Globalization, which has so much potential to spread prosperity, can also result in economic disparity, cultural homogenization and marginalization of certain countries. We must ensure that globalization contributes to the overall well-being of all people in the world while at the same time respecting the uniqueness of different cultures and traditions.

    In any progressive country, tolerance and compassion are core values in society. There should be a development philosophy of “Gross National Happiness” where the individual well-being is the focus of all development initiatives.

    Humanity can only make headway if it acknowledges and draws on lessons from the evils of the past, in particular slavery, the slave trade and colonialism. We must acknowledge those crimes, not to twist the knife in the wound, but to better acknowledge that their lethal germs still persist. We are not here to humiliate anyone, but humanity can only take a decisive step forward if the whole truth of history is brought to light. If we want to overcome racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance, we must restore the truth regarding the history of people who today find themselves on the bottom of the pile. We are not thinking about any kind of vengeance. Reconciliation not only asks for forgiveness, but also for repentance, sincere repentance. Sincere repentance must be active repentance. The international struggle against racism and racial discrimination requires a sensitive approach. Each voice in the international community must have a say. Debate must be promoted and a universal solution must be found out in peace and harmony.

    Thats it.

    Switch off the crap Bigg Boss/Bigg Brother 

    Pathetic and Weak‘ , ‘Intellectually Crap‘ – probably this is what a civilized society will say about (un)Reality TV based shows like Bigg Boss in India and Bigg Brother in UK.

    The so called reality in these shows promote *racism(Shilpa Shetty incident in UK), and often misguide the common public.(Bigg Boss in India) At least in Indian where many people glorify icons, this situation is certainly not favourable. Let me make it clear that none of the contestants of Bigg Boss are icons nor they deserve any public support. They are just strugglers dying to make some money out of the utter crap they present on the TV. Most of them have their careers slumped and it feels so disgraceful when the quality of TV shows is dropping to such a low level, man can it get some more worse then this?? Just for the sake of increasinf the viewer base or channel TRP, these blokes are ready to potray anything unuseful on the idiot box screen.

    Arrgh..someone needs to setup a few mandatory standards for the quality of TV shows all round the world, so that the general public interest is not harmed.

    No matter how much technology changes, no matter how sharp the picture and sound quality is superior, the idiot box is still considered to be a crap for its the lack of quality TV media.Its nothing but like creating a rift between various parts of the society. The idiot box has become more idiot and seemingly more dangerous..

    *Consistant use of racial comments can lead to the dawn of a new Hitler who will be more armed, more dangerous, more ambitious, more intelligent, more perfect then the previous one.

    Actually, in this age of globalization, such issues need not arise, but who cares..

    Apple iPhone – The evening after in India and rest of Asia 

    Apple iPhone is todays equivalent example of Sony Walkman of yesterday. Theres no path breaking features that it offers, but apparantly, its PDA and smartphone capabilities(alongwith very good marketting) can help Apple to reach a wide customer base and also it will give comman non technical consumers the chance to learn the Apple way of design and operation. As it is many people just drool over the lean mean Mac, its time to have one in pocket and let the world drool. I would personally take it as a PDA device with the capacities of the Mac OS. Now-a-days many PDA have a crossover as a mobile device and a PDA or a portable handheld. It would have been much better had Mr Jobs introduced it as a iPod+PDA and not a smartphone+PDA..

    As far as Indian market is concerned, I think that people will literally do anything to get this fabulous PDA. Reasons of it not used as a smartphone are

    1. India dosent have an EDGE capable network as of 11 jan 07.(If theres any, please market yourself more guys. I think former BPL had this, but not clear about it) GPRS is present, but the operators charge it like hell, and a its an example of a paradox that BSNL broadband is much cheaper and affordable then the GPRS provided by blokes like Airtel, Hutch, !dea and the CDMA players like Reliance and Tata Indicom.

    2. 3G is absent. My motorazr can take a 2.5G and 3G, but as of now, I dont think that any provider has this facility.

    3. Nokia already dominates the hi-end market in India, but it never markets its any smartphone as a PDA. Nor does it offer any features as compared to the iPhone, although their N-series has got some serious multimedia features. Theres pretty tough competition for survival.

    The asian market is full of varied diversities. Japan has got its own NTT DoCoMo, India has got WLL, CDMA, GSM, and all are incompaitable with each other. I hope that by the time iPhone reaches Asian market, the final picture will become much clear, and hopefully, the Apple iPhone will give Apple and consumers a great functionality.

    Update on June 25, 2008.

    Apple iPhone is to be launched in India by Vodafone. To book your iPhone in India, sms IPHONE to 56789. The price of iPhone is expected to be around 25000 + taxes. So get your savings out for this beauty.. 😉

    Update on July 11, 2008.

    Please check out this link which shows an Apple iPhone in India. According to it, IPhone will be officially available in September 2008.

      All leading service providers provide GPRS with EDGE connectivity. No wonder that since 2005, most of the phones launched in India already feature EDGE capability. The service has been around for a long time now.

      In Mumbai, players providing EDGE networks are Hutch, BPL and Airtel.

      True, they are EDGE networks. But they are only local EDGE networks. Just like the pseudo-broadband service we get in INDIA, the EDGE networks are not really EDGE. It’s Indian-EDGE. Worse but good enough for people who don’t know what speeds should be

      Hi Guys,

      If the price is 31000 and 36000 for 8GB and 16GB respectively, then i am damn sure it will be a flop show for Steve Jobs in indian market.

      People in india are not much aware of the latest technology what US people are crazy about, we need a phone with good qulity.. since I phone has got good features like Ipod, multi finger touch.. people are much satisfied with this..

      So what i suggest is, give us the basic phone with Ipod and multi touch technology, we do not need the internet device.. we have got so many cyber cafe around to browse.. so if price is 12000 to 16000 deffenetly it will be a good show for Apple in india.

      All the best for Apple..

    Apple shares up on iPhone launch(Well finally..) 

    Apple iPhone

    Shares in Apple Computer closed some 8% higher on news that it is launching a touch screen mobile phone, the iPhone.

    News of the device – to be used exclusively on the Cingular Wireless network – sent shares in smart phones, iPhone’s competitors, sharply lower.The iPhone, costing from $499 (£257) to $599, will be on sale from June in the US and from October in Europe.The phone with 4 gigabyte (GB) of memory will cost $499 while the higher price is for a model with twice the memory space.

    Also at the Macworld event in San Francisco Mr Jobs said that the firm would change its name to simply Apple.

    The move to switch from calling the firm Apple Computer to Apple is an indication of the firm’s focus on consumer electronics, Mr Jobs said.

    Mr Jobs predicted that in 2008, when the phone will start being available in Asia, the firm could sell 10 million iPhones, equivalent to 1% of today’s yearly mobile phone market.

    Competition from other players in Smartphone catagory

    Andrew Seibert, of Stewart Capital Advisors, said phone firm Verizon might have to watch out and other manufacturers “may have some problems”.

    Analyst Shannon Cross of Soleil Cross Research said the move would lead consumers to “upgrade some of the existing iPods” but more crucially it would cause greater competition for existing smart phones.

    Shares in smart phones fell on the news, with Research in Motion – the maker of Blackberry devices, tumbling nearly 8% on the Nasdaq.

    “We won’t find out for another six months what real impact (the iPhone) is going to have in the channels,” said Research Capital analyst Nick Agostino.

    But after the news the market was reacting to potential stiff competition ahead between Apple and smart phone makers – including Nokia, Motorola and Palm, for high end consumers.

    Mr Jobs said: “Most advanced phones are called smart phones. But they are actually not so smart, and really not so easy to use.”


    We are all born with the ultimate pointing device – our fingers – iPhone uses them to create the most revolutionary user interface since the mouse

    Steve Jobs, chief executive, Apple Computer

    Users will be able to play music from iTunes and take photos with the new phone.

    Gates: Digital locks too complex for consumers 

    Microsoft boss Bill Gates has told a group of influential bloggers that copy protection for digital music and video is too complex for consumers.

    Mr Gates was speaking to an invited party of bloggers and web developers at Microsoft’s Seattle headquarters.

    Digital Rights Management (DRM), which is used to stop copying, is a big issue for some people who feel it limits what they can do with legally bought files. Microsoft is one of the biggest exponents of DRM, which is used to protect music and video files on lots of different online services, including Napster and the Zune store.

    Backers of DRM argue it gives artists an assurance that their work is being protected while critics of DRM argue that the tools limit the value of downloaded music or video files because of the restrictions imposed to try to prevent copying.

    Hmm…better late then never, Mr Gates realized that he is too gonna go the Apple way.

    Broadband in India and Abroad – part 2 

    Today BSNL announced a launch of a new broadband service codenamed ‘TripleNet’ which will allow users to use the phone, surf the net, and above all, watch the TV on PC.

    Phase 1 will include free to air TV channels and Phase 2 will have value added services like games, FM radio, movies on demand and above all – video telephony. Instead of a modem, a set top box will be provided, and cable media will be used as the default connection. However, its unclear whether satellite communication will be used or not.

    Pune will be the first city in India where this kind of service will be tested and will be launched for all around Jan 2007. Apart from some technical hitches, BSNL broadband is regarded as an affordable way to get online comparatively fast.

    The other exciting thing would be a wirefree connection, and according to some sources, Pune is soon to get Wi-Max too.

    Hmm..the future appears bright and connected.

    The Great Indian ‘copying’ challenge 

    Watching the TV continiously for a few days has made me realize that all the major TV Channels in India have absolutely lost their creative ideas and are hell bent in aping the US reality TV shows  and hopelessly trying to ‘indianize’ that version.

    Its a shame that these people, who are capable of having a large and good impact on Indian people, are themselves trying to find a readymade solution by doing this. The current live shows – Bigg Boss, [V] Roadies, FameX etc show nothing but absolutely wrong picture of Indian youth and its utterly disgrace to watch the pathetic things that are displayed all over. These programs are portraying – ‘Do anything. Lie, cheat, backstab, gossip, but survive’. However, there are a few entities who ae very happy on these shows. They are – Mobil communication companies, soft drink companies, and apparel companies, media managers, self proclaimed ‘ad-gurus’. Their profits are booming sky high. I lost Rs 5/- for sending one  sms to a reality show. Face it – I felt as if I gave it to a roadside begger.

    Only the (ruling) government owned Doordarshan is somewhat avoiding this trend, because its the only channel that has a wide reach to the most remotest place in India and is very cautious in preserving its image as a channel for masses. But unfortunately, the quality of content on Doordarshan is unspeakable, ununderstandable and its better to ignore this.

    Actually, watching the whole scenario, its clear that private channels are falling short of quality TV content and good old Doordarshan is uninterested in trying something new. The immature private news channels apparently are more obsessed with the concept of ‘breaking news’. For that these blokes can do anything. Almost anything. They can display unwatchable dead bodies, they can display blood, they can have a talk with henious murdarars, they can invite criminals live to their studios, they can have a live coverage of indian prisons, they can have sting operations on people, anything is possible….

    I wonder, who can beat the shit out of them?

    • JV 6:22 am on November 26, 2006 Permalink | Reply

      Cant disagree with you. I frustrate whenever I have just causal glance at my tv screen. Today tv is the admittedly largest media, influencing the entire India effectively(adversely, I would rather say).

      But what can be done, when mass of people really enjoy such ‘creative’ programme.

      There is no direct control over what channels are showing.

    • SR 6:06 am on December 30, 2006 Permalink | Reply

      dude this is the basic buy n sell principle of economics. and it does not depend on a country or its cable providers, its the viewers who govern what needs to be shown on tv. but i certainly agree with you on two points, these shows are stupid and india lacks creativity not only in field of media but also in science and arts

    Google Wordmasters 2006 – From where it all began 

    Dear readers.

    I want to tell you guys a few facts regarding this Google Wordmasters 2006.

    Like we all know, Google. has found contests to be a good way to identify talented staff in India. It did that to hire engineers in India, and it’s did it again, to find graduates with good English-writing skills for its AdWords advertising program.
    Google, which has an Indian research-and-development operation, is expanding the offshore operations to staff it with people with other skills required by Google worldwide.

    Google India has hired an undisclosed number of graduate staff for its AdWords and online sales programs. The company is not guaranteeing employment for contest winners, but it intends to use the contest’s screening and interview process to identify potential recruits. Google has separately advertised on its Web site for the position of an AdWords representative to assist in the management of its online advertising accounts. The company has said that it requires a graduate with strong American English editing and writing skills.

    Through its Wordmasters contest, Google hopes to identify the right persons for this kind of job, the spokeswoman added. Google is also looking for staff in India to assist in the management of its online customer accounts for its new service, Google Checkout, and for its online sales.

    A number of companies, including Microsoft, have used contests to help identify qualified Indian staff. For two years consecutive years Google has hosted a coding contest, called Google India Code Jam.

    Multinational companies with operations in India are looking for other opportunities to tap India’s low-cost skilled staff. Many of the companies that started with software development in India are now looking at business process outsourcing, online sales and content creation and management.

    This was on 21/09/2006

    Every one who participated was extremely pleased. The Google goody bag, the young and smart Google India employees, the aura and ambience of the local environment, the aspiring dreams of young budding writers waiting for getting their enourmous talent to be recognized by the worlds best company. This is what dreams are made up of. Remember – this is what you felt on reaching the venue.

    The event was completed within a couple of hours, and the contestants returned home, with the organizers promising the results after 1 month.

    Somewhere on 15 Oct 2006, this news made a headline –

    Google not finding right talent in India to suit its needs

    IT engineers may be dime-a-dozen in India, but internet search engine leader Google is having a hard time finding candidates with the right skill sets in the country.

    Google, which is considered to have a very low attrition rate even in the high-job-hopping Indian IT space, has found it more challenging to hire certain talent in India as compared to other parts of the world, the company’s founder-director Kavitark Ram Shriram admitted recently.

    The Indian origin founding board member of Google and a well-known venture capitalist said at an ‘Investing in India’ conference in San Francisco, “I know first hand that we have had a bit more of a challenge trying to hire engineers for Google in Bangalore compared to the other parts of the world.” The people are smart, innately smart, but do not have some particular skill set yet, Shriram added.

    The daunting admission comes from an influential board member of a company which puts a prominent link of ‘We’re Hiring’ on the home page of its India website.

    Besides, the company claims to encourage its employees “to make their dreams a reality,” to provide “a fun atmosphere” to work, along with other benefits like “mediclaim insurance, life insurance, business travel/personal accident insurance, sick time, maternity leave, paternity leave and family care leave.”

    When contacted, a Google India spokesperson declined to comment on the issues raised by Shriram, but said the company was very pleased with the talent it had found in India.(Obviously a big lie. Is the Company president out of his mind or is the spokesperson too diplomatic??)

    The spokesperson told PTI, “We are building global centres to be at the same quality throughout the world and Google Bangalore R&D centre is an important part of the Google innovation story.”

    The Bangalore centre was one of Google’s first R&D centres outside the US and was set up with a charter to innovate, implement, and launch new Google technologies and products. The company’s Google Finance service was first developed at this centre.

    “We are very pleased with the way this centre has grown and with the talent we have found in India,” the spokesperson said. (Another example of a big lie)

    The company director, who was among the two Indians in the Forbes list of the 400 richest Americans, cited the shortage of right talent with certain skills in web development and web design technology areas as well as at middle-manager levels.

    Now, do I need to tell anything more? The story itself reveals what exactly is behind Googles cards. I dont say that they are wrong, but we need to understand this. We are really way behind the world as far as Web 2.0 is concerned. But this situation wont last for too long. With the great Indian spirit, I am sure that we will top this newly found technology.

    Google Co-op Search Engine 

    I think I am a little late on this topic,but anyway…

    This is my new Google Co-op Search Engine over here.

    Feel free to experiment, but note that it dosent index thousand/million/billion pages. However, it does incorporate nice links and good content for technology/food/linux/Web 2.0 fans and users. And following Googles method, its currently in beta.

      Won’t the winners names be given in any website ? won’t it be made known to all contestants. That is the rule of any compettion to let everyone know who the winners are!

      This is fraustrating. every contestant has the right to know the winners and runners up. with 3000 people participating and the result known to a handful. congratulating the winners will make us feel a part of the contest. plz let us know the result. I am sure every contestant is longing to know it .

      Relax..just look how cool and calm I am right now. Dont waste precious bandwidth on Google. Utilize it to listen to music, meet friends, surf for new information.

      Thats it..

    Google Wordmasters, Pune – An insiders story(part 2) 

    Gosh..only 5 more days to go and the winner of Google Wordmasters 2K6 will be announced on 30 October 2006. Theres a lot of excitment amongs almost 3000 participants across 10 cities of India. Whoa..who will be the lucky one to take the cream cake. Who will lead from the front?

    Wow..its tense moments for some of us, except for the Winner who at the back of his mind might be thinking – ‘Oh, it was too easy. Just a presence of mind and some luck. Thats all. You do require some skill…but taking 2999 people at a time,God must be crazy..But its a sort of feat and an achievment. ‘

    And those who know that they are not gonna win might be thinking on somewhat these lines – ‘Many people have got truck loads of skills, but unfortunately, its the winner who takes it all at the end. God must been feeling crazy while designing this system, but probably even he didnt had any other option.Hmph…Better luck next time..’

    Let me tell that winning is an astonishing experience. Some feel it like adreline pumping through blood, while some feel it as the tight hug of sweetheart – up, close and personal.

    Whatever it may be, I bet that the entire 3000 blokes want to win..Lets enjoy this waiting till 30th.

      Its October 30th and no news from google! I can hardly wait to hear about the winners…. especially curous about the age/city demographics of the 10 they pick 🙂
      Good Luck to all!

      Now its the 31st and there is still no news about the winners. Does anyone know when exactly the results would be declared? Can’t wait to know about it.

    • Harshad Joshi 12:17 pm on October 31, 2006 Permalink | Reply

      Salim, don’t die. It’s probably Google’s way of maintaining suspense. Of course it could simply be incompetence, but I prefer to believe the former!

    • Ranjani S 8:07 am on November 1, 2006 Permalink | Reply

      Well, if winners do know about it, could they be kind enough to let the others know how they got to know the results?

    • Salim 6:25 pm on November 1, 2006 Permalink | Reply

      Hari bhai, thanks for your advice… but its november 1st for gods sake… and still no news !

      Mr K.Kannan,

      I checked out your blog. Really liked the piece “Whose Bride is it Anyway ?” Find it completely credible & rib tickling because once I too committed a similar social faux pas.

      Did you contact Google India & confirm your runner up status at the Google Wordmasters 2006 ? If possible post the piece you wrote for them on your blog or Harshad’s or email it to me. I would like to see the kind of writing which has made the grade.
