It's about me...

Today I wanna write something about me!!!!
Actually some days before I was reading a article in newspaper, the writer very clearly mentioned his likes and dislikes. After reading, when I thought my choices I found that I am not coming to certain points.... ;)

As what I am doing is totally different than what I actually want. Finally I decided whatever is in the mind it should come out on paper/written. After doing this now I clearly know what I want and what not... I am putting my list here, but I suggest you also just give 5 min. for yourself and note down all the things which you like or don't, after that you will find ......It's ALL About ME.

My Favorite Places:
1) A garden full of scented flowers.
2) A quiet corner in a restaurant, where the waiters know what I like.
3) A bench on a railway platform, with no train to catch.
4) The shade of a old peepal tree, its leaves spinning in a gentle breeze.
5) Old banglows, with broad verandahs.
6) A bookshop full of book lovers.
7) Beaches and sea faces, should not be over crowded.
8) A night full of stars and milky way.
9) A hill top , all to myself.
10) Computer desk.

Unfavorite Places:

1) Court rooms, tax offices, police stations - all the appurtenance of government.
2) overcrowded places of worship/meals/restaurants.
3) A littered patch of ground the morning after a marriage party.
4) Public toilets and what the public left behind.
5) Hospital wards.

GTalk Status Messages......

This may look very strange topic by seeing it's heading but I am telling you, this is the most interesting thing for me whenever I be online. Initially it was just status messages showing me or others status when we are online like 'busy', 'not at desk', 'available' something that kind of bla bla, but I found we are tired of seeing these only available messages and now people mostly prefer the custom message option of gtalk/gmail. And I am telling you that if you really check all gtalk status of your friends in chat window, you will also find it interesting. Whenever I see a new gtalk status, a big smile comes on my face, I think it's same for you too.

I am putting some gtalk status, some from me and some from my friends and I am very thankful to all of them for showing their great creativity in a very small thing. This gtalk status list will be updated regularly.

"Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning." - Rick Cook

Professionalism is getting mastery in complexity, while mastery is changing complexity to simplicity.

Life is full of milestones.....comes with time!!!!

Every free minute is a short story with a happy ending.

Borrow money from pessimists - they don't expect it back.

"Computers are like bikinis. They save people a lot of guesswork." -Sam Ewing

Man is the lowest-cost, 150-pound, nonlinear, all-purpose computer system which can be mass-produced by unskilled labor. -NASA in 1965

Programming is not a trial n error phenomenon, pause, think logically n then only go for the coding.

Even if a snake is not poisonous, it should pretend to be venomous.

Happiness always looks small.

In life nothing is permanent, Not Good; Not Bad.

And I found very simple but very interesting gtalk status messages is

"Tell me......."

Nobody do favour for you, unless get paid.

Preconception is the major culprit of right decision.

"People are just about as happy as they make up their minds to be..." - Abraham Linkon.

"Beware the fury of a patient man!" -- John Dryden.

A man without a woman is like a fish without a bicycle.

The inevitable truth of life is.. Everyone is going to hurt you, sooner or later. You just have to realize who is worth the pain...

Time alone can prove the worth of any relationship. As time goes by, we lose the false ones, and the best ones stay...

Just when you're getting a grip on things, fate comes along and jumps on your fingers.

Taare zameen per - Movie Review ...

Last week I watched movie "Taare Zameen Per"(TZP). It inspired me to do some creative work which soothe my mind. So I am here.

Taare zameen per(TZP) is simply awesome movie. After a long time I watched movie that is very simple by nature but touching the heart, sentimental but not depressing, inspire us to do hard work and win the world. Sometimes you may feel to cry but at the end I am sure you will be fully charged and feel highly energetics and enthusiastic. After watching movie you may feel that you should also do some creative work like painting ;)

The story is all about a child Ishaan Awasthi (Darsheel Safary), who is suffering from the peculiar diseases dyslexia due to this he is not able to remember the letters and its mirror image, not able to figure out what to do first when he gets multiple instructions and also not able to judge the speed and distance for the moving objects. The boy has done a superb job and full justice to his role.Ishaan is total failure case from his parents view, from his teachers view and even from his friend view. Nobody understand why Ishaan is like this. Ram Shankar Nikumbh(Aamir khan), who is his Art teacher, understand his problem and work hard to help the boy to overcome these problems. Finally extracts out his hidden art of painting...In painting Ishaan is much mature than a normal adult, he is genius in painting.

Songs are having good and meaningful lyrics with cheerful music, and main thing songs are part of the story, which we do not see in many movies nowadays. There is no item number and Pyaar-mohabbat saga. Aamir Khan is well known for his sensibility and intensity in making the films. This spirit of Aamir is continue in Taare Zameen Par. I can say this is the best movie of 2007. Just watch this movie, after watching this movie you will feel it is Full PAISA VASOOL. Just keep in mind this is Ishaan's movie not the Aamir Khan movie...
