Photo of each meal

Have you ever been abroad or away from your family... or at worst very calary concious? Look at this blog . This guy is taking pics of all what he eats EVERYDAY.... and posting them on his blog. My reaction was kinda mixed. Funny or may be not! Home Made Indian Food

Well, I had tried such stuff when I was in New York City and my family was worried what the heck I must be eating (Except the favourite food of Indians abroad i.e. McDonald Burgers). Fortunately, I was not fond of those burgers like this McD Generation.. and I preferred going to various retaurants in NYC ... OR best way cooking at home. The point to mention is, once I had taken photos of what I cooked at home and sent across the Digi pics my home. Well, well, well... Do not think that, I dont know cooking.. If you don't believe me, look at the pic!

Can you imagine this happening in INDIA?

It seems believable! What you think!!

Government of India has a online Grievance forum

The government wants people to use this tool to highlight the problems they faced while dealing with Government officials or departments like Passport Office, Electricity board, BSNL/MTNL, Railways etc etc.

I know many people will say that these things dont work in India, but this actually works as one of our colleague in CSC found. The guy i'm talking about lives in Faridabad. Couple of months back, the Faridabad Municipal corporation laid new roads in his area and the residents were very happy about it. But 2 weeks later, BSNL dugged up the newly laid roads to install new cables which annoyed all the residents including this guy. But it was only this guy who used the above listed grievance forum to highlight his concern. And to his surprise, BSNL and Municipal corporation of faridabad was served a showcause notice and the guy recieved a copy of the notice in one week. Government has asked the MC and BSNL about the goof up as its clear that both the governent departments were not in sync at all. So use this grievance forum and educate others who dont know about this facility. This way we can atleast raise our concerns instead of just talking about the 'System' in India.

Beautiful Sunday

It was 10 am in the morning, a relaxing Sunday. When I don't have to go out somewhere or nothing important to do, I love to call it as beautiful Sunday.

Mind is empty, no diary pages to see with today's tasks to finish. Just do whatever you wish. Right at 10 Am, the power went off, and I started with the plan of a HOT cup of coffee with my wife (somehow my wife already had read my previous post and she was already on the way to get some HOT coffee for us). I helped her to have that small breakfast table on our bed and we had some nice moments together.

What could be the next... you won't believe. We pulled out our table tennis rackets and headed towards our clubhouse. This is the clubhouse, the table tennis table is at the left side of swimming pool.

We were playing TT after so long, that we lost the interest in TT pretty soon (within 10 minutes). The reason was we both were not using the table to play. It was more like a badminton game. LOL!!

We are planning to join the Gym since long (Well, we are expert in making plans) and on this auspicious day ;), the plan came into existence. We worked out in Gym for say 30-40 minutes. Enough!!

Now came back home, power is ON and I m back online. Now, I am hoping to have a beautiful Sunday evening in few hours.

Power Cut Down

I thought of starting my own journey with blogs with a different meaning. And I started it 10 minutes before the scheduled power shut off.. LOL!!

I know this sucks, but there is always a positive side of it. I will be atleast stay away from electronix world and spend some time having a cup of coffee with my wife on this beautiful Sunday morning...

I will be back after no load shedding... (when power will be back)
