Tryst with Technology

Yesterday my brother had left Chennai on a pilgrimage tour, and couple of 100 kms on his way he tried to contact my mother back home. He kept calling but all his tries to the land line and the mobile were in vein and the only message he got was “Network busy”.
So, called me up and told me that he’d been trying to reach her but couldn’t and wanted me to call her and pass the message. Ok, what’s so great about this? Well I was just 10,000 miles away in Toronto and his call came to me as an uninvited wake up call at 6-ish on a Sunday morning. I called my Mom and the line connected, I passed the message to her and told her to call him.
It may be a desperate move or sheer audacity, but for making the world smaller it’s definitely “Bravo Technology”.

I am back!

I am back!

Yes, after a particularly long deserved hibernation, I finally gained enough courage to face the blog-ing world. While I was out, the world had a lot of interesting things happening to keep readers busy even while my blog was asleep, viz:

Government got ready to reserve seats of OBCs, Vote bank showed its power,
It had to increase seats, pay and infrastructure, Government goes under cover.

Amma and Kalaignar changed seats,
They have also changed seating arrangements.

7 years back in Kargil Indians fought,
7 years later, Indians forgot.

Mittal’s bid good enough for Arcelor takeover,
Still, Arcelor delays Mittal’s makeover.

The Sensex crashed like never before,
It crashed again.

To increase accountability RTI (Right to Information act) was enforced,
The act was deflated as the government was getting exposed.

Israel goes on war with Hezbollah,
Give me a break, says Nasarallah.

Indians lost to WI in the one-days,
India does came back to win the Test some days.

In 2006 F1 GP, Alonso as yet won six races,
Schumacher too made the best in five chases.

I am back and I am back for good,
I am here to give my thoughts some food!
