Sunday Morning.

Things to do. What else to do?

Things that are done.
Things that could be done.
Things that cannot be done.
Things that could be done.
Things that can't be undone.

It is so easy to say I am not responsible. Because if you have to say "I am responsible", you might have to say "I am irresponsible". - Stephen Covey

The new Coke Ad

The new coke ad featuring Imran Khan and Kalki Koechlin had some really de ja VU kind of music. I had heard the riff somewhere. Sometime ago....

Firstly the song is an old song.....There is a remix version of the original Rafi Saab's rendition of Tumjho Mil gaye ho

Regarding the bass riff, it was one of Aqua's effort sometime ago , which did not feature their trademark cartoon feel - The code ad's riff is very similar to Aqua's Turn Back Time.. Listen to the bugle (or the clarinet or whatever wind instrument)....

But interesting remix...

It's official

I have completed the coursework for my Master of Computer Science degree at Illinois Institute of Technology - Specialization in Computer Networking And Telecommunications .


The results for my Spring 2010 are out, I did not get the best marks(screwed up the subject which I would have liked to do really well), but good enough to complete the course. phew. It is a tough course and it feels good to add 2 years of academic education to your life. Would recommend this one to someone who is really motivated and would like to set their ass on fire even though work is piled up at office.

Now I will wait for the certificate. But as shown in 3 idiots, education is about the journey rather than the degree. MS was just like engineering, but a LOT more deeper. But definitely way better than the BE in terms of depth. To be frank it did take a toll on my weekends and I effortlessly get up at 3am these days. I bunked a few social gatherings (which have made the extended family angry), but seriously it is too much these days and I do not regret "not going" to a function AT ALL. Of course I will make up my absence and indifference and all that.

Steve Jobs and his thoughts on Adobe Flash :
Thoughts on Flash.

Is really iPhone dictating the mobile market so much ? He is just bossing over Adobe. This is real ganchali

Once upon a time there was a boy who used to go to school. He was little different from the others. He was devout and pious. He used to smear a lot of vibhuti on his forehead, he practiced yoga early in the morning in the valleys and used to run to school. He also wore the rudrakshi mala. The other boys ridiculed him.

They would ask him what would he do when he grew up. With a straight face he would reply, I will be a swami one day.

Then one day, he visited the village tent. He saw a movie in the tent. The heroine wore a tribal dress and showed some subtle expressions on screen and his life was changed. His textbooks always used to have fotos of gods. Now came the foto of the heroine of the movie. The gods and the heroine. Both were his favorites. He had told his friends that he will meet her at any costs.

Then one day, after his tenth exams, he left his town forever. He was away for 2 years. Rumors told that he traveled North and met the great rishis and the agoris in the North. He began to "radiate with enlightenment" [1] - He became really famous. He had a clear vision - and a belief about his spiritual influence on thousands of people.

Meanwhile the heroine of who wore the tribal dress suffered personal life problems and she became unacceptable to the item number hungry audience. Her second marriage was also unhappy. She struggled with her career and life....But a strange thing happened.

And the boy cam back as Swami Nithyananda. He was rich and powerful. With his grit and determination he won his high school sweetheart- The actress Ranjitha and he went on to fool and rule his followers.
