Category: The Week That Was


Hmpf, SHOW-OFF!

It truly involves a lot work delving deep into the pages of psychology to really understand how a human behaves! And although you assume one thing, it actually ends the other way altogether! We do some actions that either or actually are in fact inspired by others. No-one can have a REAL and unique action,thought,behavior,etc.. because we all have transcended generations by learning from our ancestors.

Yet, you know in some situations we or more to say, I, simply don’t know how to react.. Should I tae it in a positive way or a negative way.. Yet, I simply don’t know why, I tend to look at the negative first rather than actually learn to accept the positive thing of a situation first!

I do admit that it’s a bad habit, but I guess I do enjoy and hope that other people too accept the fact that they too are like me!

However, now let me bring forth the reason why I chose to blog about this! I got a mail this morning from a friend of mine who happens to be owning a Blackberry!

Now how did I know? Well apparently for every message that I send my friend happened to send a reply that contained not just the message but also this line displayed prominently: “Sent from my Blackberry

Now, every human has a level of patience right? I mean how many messages can you handle from a “Blackberry” than my friend! So I bade my friend a “cheerful goodbye” citing a fake reason that I had other work to do and finished my conversation.

However I was actually in two minds.. I mean although initially I was just so pissed with the incessant messages pouring into my inbox from a mobile phone, yet I was actually getting  a bit put-off from the fact that my friend had a “Black Berry” while I,sigh,still had an old-fashioned phone to keep me company (But I still like it, Hello Moto! 😉 )

Apart from the human psyche to feel a sense of greed and envy on seeing another person flaunt something that you don’t have, but I also came to a conclusion that its nothing but a “neat marketing trick” by the company!

Now, you can question, how am I saying this?

Well, how many of you do agree to the fact that after falling prey to the trick in discussion, attempt to get hold of that “Blackberry” or any other smart phone?

I’m sure most of us would raise our hands in acceptance to the question!

Wow, am I brainy or what? *Applause*

Oh, another think I forgot to add was that I also received a message from the “Facebook email id” of a friend of mine! Now again should I think that it’s another marketing trick of Facebook or was it a devious way of my friend to brag about his new-found fascination or blame it on my ever-doubting brain? Hmm.. I’ll leave you guys to guess that!

Alright, I’ve ranted enough!No more charge on my Apple iPhone! Needs recharge! 😉

Until next time, Happy blogging…

World Watch

Hello everyone! I have been absent from posting anything, but rest assured I was active on WordPress and came across some really wonderful posts by other bloggers!

The previous week had been hectic not only for me but for the whole world as well! Events of various magnitudes and importance took place across the world!

One pf the most awaited events was the G20 Summit that kicked off in South Korea, that saw the participation of the world leaders of the 20 nations that are part of the association. Trade, International Security and Global Warming were some of the key issues that were on the agenda of most of the nations that were participating in the summit! One of the key meetings would be the interaction between US President Barack Obama and his Chinese counterpart Hu-Jintao. With discrepancies in the Chinese currency with respect to the US dollar and trade pacts to be discussed, it will one of the highlights of the summit.

Proceeding further we also saw the “grand”, and I must add exquisite, opening ceremony, at the 2010 Asiad being held at Guagnzhou, China. As expected the Chinese athletes have been doing well. This kind of made me ponder about the fact of sport and the importance of training! With my knowledge, I can say that the chinese have excelled in all sports and this is due to the fact that they start training the children at a very young age.

Although I agree that the performance would be higher once they reach a certain age if they start training at a young age, but as a child don’t you think that they should be enjoying their childhood(that happens only once) rather than sweating it out at practise sessions with “demanding” coaches and “strenuous exercises”!

Another most significant event was the release of Aung San Su Kyi. The Burmese leader was kept under house arrest for over 15 years of the 21 years that she was charged or rather “unabashedly convicted” by the Military Junta party who have stopped the development of Burma by “force”. Yet it remains unclear whether she will be freed without any conditions or there is an underlying fear that she could be placed under house arrest again! Praying it doesnt happen, I have to add that anyone in this world should be free and no one has a right to be kept restricted by anyone else, excepting our conscience! Our conscience is the only entity that has a right to keep us under control at anytime possible. However a dismal fact is that only some people have the “time” to listen to their conscience in this fast paced world!

300 Views!!!

Hello everyone, I would like to bring to your notice that I’ve had over 300 views on my blog since I started in late August and early September! So I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to all the readers of my blog(IF THERE ARE ANY???) Please do continue to give me your support, so that I feel inspired to do more for you and me!!!

Apart from that I would also like to bring to everyone’s notice that US President Barrack Obama is coming to India next week during festival time! His visit has generated quite a lot of hype and “expenses” here! Apparently he has booked closed to the full Taj Hotel in Mumbai. I guess that pretty much close to 500 rooms?

Whoa!!! That’s a lot! In the wake of his visit, many “big” industrialists have started to converge in India! Well as long as it improves ties and trade between the two countries, I’m good! Will update about his visit next week on my blog, so people keep watching this space!!!
