If You're Looking for LOVE, GET LOST...!!!


OOOPPPSSS...!!!
.
It's not my ideology...!!!
.
It's from the movie "Finding Fanny"...!!!



Well not much of a movie specific to "Masala-Loving Crowd", but yeah its going to be a good one for those who are pissed off by the stupid movies coming these days in Bollywood and want to ease themselves and spend couple of hours in a light mood, this is the one for you.

Obviously, no one can doubt on the star-cast, it was a "perfect one" for the movie, which includes Naseeruddin Shah, Pankaj Kapur and Dimple Kapadia among the senior members and Deepika Padukone and Arjun Kapoor among the youngsters. All of them were perfectly suited to the roles.

I must say it was a perfect combo of "Romance", "Love", "Fun", "Passion" and "Life". The movie revolves around a post-master - role played by Naseeruddin Shah - who started with a confused and messed up post-master in the first half with a little sensible one in the second one.

Their ain't any suspense in the movie. Just little bit tragic, but still a decent bollywood comedy I'd prefer over any stupid Hindi films coming these days.

I'd say it deserves a 3.5/5 or even a 4/5 wouldn't do much harm considering the stupid movies coming these days...

PS: Unlike other movies you can watch this movie till the last name in the closing credits, as along with that you will get one of the hilarious tracks "Shake your Bootiya". I loved it.

The Best Ever Tribute to Michael Jackson...!!!


6 Years and somehow I managed to continue it. I was actually wondering what exactly to share on the 6th anniversary of my dear blog.

Couldn't find anything more appropriate than the best ever tribute (my personal favorite) to the legendary Michael Jackson.

Anything but FLIPKART...!!!


I didn't expect that when I'll resume blogging after 2.5 months of vacations, it will be with a negative post about someone. But I can't help but write it.

I often used to wonder why people still prefer to visit stores rather than shopping online. Like for mobiles people still prefer Univercell, Mobile Store, etc., even though they can buy handsets online. And I guess I got the answer. Unfortunately through a bad experience.

________________________________________________________________________________
In last one year Amazon has brought a sort of revolution in the e-commerce market. The biggest sufferer was none other than Flipkart, who made Indian Population rely on power of online purchasing in India. Obviously Amazon had funds and an already built market by Flipkart, so here they were giving low prices and free deliveries for almost everything.

What should Flipkart have done...??? They knew that they were gonna be screwed, but then they started selling MOTO-{G/X/E}, which was only available on Flipkart. It was a huge success and Flipkart flourished and received a $1 Billion funding in response to Amazon putting $2 Billion for them.

{Everyone knows the above story. So lets go for the second half.}

I guess Flipkart never thought of the after sales services which people would need. No device is perfect, but a dealer needs to give the service if he is selling the product, especially when they are only one responsible in the market for the same. That's for what customers pay. Coming to the point, couple of months back Motorola gave an android update 4.4.4 from 4.4.2 and after that many Moto handsets started facing at least one of the following issue:

1. lose mobile signal
2. display 'No Sim' icons,
3. fall into Aeroplane mode (while not displaying Aeroplane Icon status)
4. Mobile signal can often be recovered by swapping into and out of Aeroplane mode.
5. Pop-up errors about being in Aeroplane mode while attempting to make calls during signal problems.
6. Aeroplane mode observed in about phone status (while no aeroplane mode shown on icons)
7.Popup errors - the process "com.android.phone" has stopped
8. Not specific to individual SIM cards - multiple SIMs (cutdown/original confirmed as impacted)
9. Suggestion that it only occurs with mobile data enabled - to be investigated.

Obviously, out of those many, one of the  handset was mine (That's why I'm here scribbling this). I had couple of them too.

So here comes the fun and the most frustrating part. I reached Motorola Service Center and told them about the issue. As expected they took the handset and returned it back after one week saying the problem has been resolved. But around 3 hours after receiving the handset, all the issues started coming back one by one. This happened a couple of times, but nothing changed. Hence, no result.

Finally I thought of reaching out to Flipkart (relying on whom I bought that set). Initial reaction from them was awesome and it went on for couple of days. I had many frequent calls from their customer care executives. Finally I was told that I'm being forwarded to the back-end team as the problem is something which cannot be directly handled by support team and I must soon expect a call from the so-called "back-end" team which handles those issues. Unfortunately that turned up to be the last conversation including mail/call. I tried getting in contact with them but no response. Do someone treat their customers like that...??? Well, that's how they deal with their customers and then say they are losing them.

Dear FLIPKART...If you are trying to shit and screw around with customers, then beware.

Well, recently I made a visit to Univercell and I must say that I was really impressed. Atleast they are offering services for any handset, regardless of any company, considering it has been brought from any of their store across India. I mentioned earlier that customer wants proper service and luckily these store guys have their outlets in every corner of the city unlike motorola who have their center in extreme corners of the city that too with a f***ed-up service. At least in these stores you don't have to run around the city for individual service centers.

I guess for books and all its fine, but for items like handset and or other goods, I'll prefer going to such stores only. However, for books and all too, it will Amazon only it seems... :D

Special thanks to UniverCell. You guys organized your meet on a perfect day and time. I was pissed of with Flipkart and wanted something relieving and you came up like a blessing in disguise.

PS: Frankly speaking... NO MORE of your services...!!! Thanks for enlightening me "My Dear Flipkart"...!!!

PPS: No offenses to my friends working in FLIPKART :P

The Poetry of the Earth is Never Dead. But We will SOON be...!!!




I wonder where the green grass went?
All buried under new cement.

I wonder where the birds have flown?
They've gone to find another home.

I wonder where the footpath's gone?
Right underneath your car, my son.

I wonder where the old folks go?
The Nursing homes will surely know.

What grows so fast before my eyes?
A garbage dump, a million flies.

Is this the place you celebrate?
In prose you made it sound so great!
It was ... before I knew it's fate.

- Ruskin Bond

**************************************************************

If someone is not able to understand the intensity of the situation, then he/she will surely do so in a couple of decades from now. Soon you'll start getting old and someday when you'll be sitting on a chair outside your house to take some fresh air, there won't be any fresh air. How can it be there, there won't be any gardens left, there won't be any trees left. How can one expect fresh oxygen then...??? 

Nothing will be left around us but just many million tons piles of concrete rising hundreds or thousands of meters in the sky. When you'll raise your eyes to look towards the sky, you'll see concrete. When you'll lower your vision to look for some soft ground to walk, you'll see concrete.

You won't see any human beings moving around, you'll just see metal boxes - loaded with robots(in the shape of human) whose sole purpose is to complete the task given by their boss - running on some rubber tires pumping out loads of Carbon Dioxide out in the air around us.

I took this video few days back. The tree was just standing harmlessly at the side of the road, what harm was it doing...??? I don't know why it was cut down. Maybe God knows why...??? :-/

It takes minimum of around 3-5 years for growing a tree and with technologies today, its doesn't even take 30 seconds to cut down the tree.

John Keats once said:

"The poetry of the earth is never dead."

He was right and it will never be. If we unnecessarily poke the elements of nature which constitutes the poetry of earth or the sound of nature, nature will produce other ways to produce its sound of nature. But they might be disastrous also. Don't believe me, have a look. Already many places are getting effected by floods and droughts in a life threatening manner.

So remember, Poetry won't be dead, just instruments might change.

Many don't have "ANY" to celebrate "ANY" such "DAY"...!!!


All round the year we either don't talk about our parents, and when we do, half of the time we're like complaining that they don't understand us, keep correcting us, keep restricting us and similar other zillion types of complaints. But then suddenly on one day, all our hearts in the world come out overflowing with our love for our Father(on Father's Day) and for our Mother(on Mother's Day) that too only on social media.

That's how the young generation acts like. We'll see their posts every other day with adjectives like "baby", "sweetoo", "jaanu", etc... but never ever a post remembering parents, except those single days.

I'm not complaining. Neither I'm trying to act smart or older. I'm just quoting the fact which all of you will very much agree to, no matter how much you try to defend it.

However, there are many who don't get the privilege to celebrate any such day because they don't have any and there are few who don't get to celebrate because they keep hesitating to take an initiative in the same regards.

The unprivileged I'm talking about are those orphans who either lost their parents or somehow their real parents lost their minds and betrayed them. And the one who don't take initiative are those couples who somehow don't get to have a child, but don't take any initiatives to adopt one due to fear of the society.

Here is a short film inspired from a real incident from Iraq during the war...!!!


In India, since the day we were born, the first question which a child automatically learns to ask is "If we do something, what will the society say..??" You live in 21st century, You don't think about society when you go out and get doped, even get so much high that you can't even walk straight. Then why are you scared of comments from society when you want to improve and make a life prosperous...??? Adopting can bring smile and life back to normal for all the people involved...Just think about it once. For especially those who need it, don't think, just go ahead, don't hesitate...!!!

Anyways, coming back to where we started, hasn't it become more like a competition for "On such days, who can show their love for their parents in a better way using one on social networking?"

Guys, at least think before writing something for someone on just one day using just one post on social media, especially for those who are not even on that social media(like your parents, is true for many). Your friends will never go and tell your parents that your son/daughter loves you so much via social media. Even those who liked and commented on your post, they also won't. If you really love them, then there are much better ways to express your love any day than making these publicity stunts on single day. If you love your parents, then posting won't increase or decrease your love for them. But yeah, for regular attendants of FB, it will definitely increase the number of "likes" and "awww" on their profiles.

Its like when your FB friends see your birthday notification, then even those who doesn't even remember how many decades back last time they met you, will definitely wish you...!!!


PS: The post is just my thoughts... No offenses meant for anyone. ;)

PPS: But once again, Adopting will bring a smile and life back to normal for all the people involved...Just think about it once. For especially those who need it, don't think, just go ahead, don't hesitate...!!!
