2007..... - > 0010 1000

There are only 10 kind of people in this world...
those who understand binary, and those who don't :)

Finally, the year 2007 is about to get over,
at this very point in time. a year ago we were all waiting
for 2007, and now, how we abandon it,
to make room for the new one !

Everyone greets the new year in his or her own way.
some spend it partying...'DJing' around the city
some cook lavish dinners,
some like to pamper, go shopping,
while the lazy ones just hang around n 'cozy' up
to the idiot box.

while amongst this all, when one doesn't celebrate,
when one feels nothing new about it, what shall he do ???
what does he think when he sees everyone around him party ???
on one hand, he perceives it as a waste of time, a frivolous act to fool oneself,
but on the other hand, he craves ....
craves to find that one reason to celebrate,
one that would make him look forward to the new year,
one that would make him spontaneous again,
one that would make him act foolish again,
one that would make jump with joy,
one that would make him free...

one that would end his painful longing...


As for me, lets c how 2008 turns out to be !!!

2007 was all the usual stuff with unusual things... :)

Logos and their Meanings...

Company Logos and their Meanings


Ever wondered what company logos mean and whats
the significance behind them? Wonder no more!



Amazon

You might think the arrow does nothing here. But it
says that amazon.com has everything from a to z and
it also represents the smile brought to
the customer's face. Wow, that is quite deep.




Eighty20

Eighty-20 is a small consulting company which does
sophisticated financial modeling, as well as some solid
database work. All their work is highly quantitative and
relies on some serious computational power, and the logo is meant to convey it.


People first guess that 20% of the squares are
darkened, but that turns out to be false after counting them. The trick is to view the dark squares as 1's and
the light squares as 0's.
Then the top line reads 1010000 and the bottom line reads 0010100, which represent 80 and 20 in binary.

Kinda like the surreal gr een screen of The Matrix, they
want us to read stuff in binary



FedEx

Am not sure how many of you have noticed a hidden
symbol in the Federal Express logo.
Yeah, I am talking about the 'arrow' that you can see
between the E and the x in this logo. The arrow was
introduced to underscore speed and precision, which are
part of the positioning of the company.




IBM



Paul Rand (who designed the iconic IBM log o in 1972)
designed this 'eye bee M' logo in 1981.
I like that they are quite relaxed about the logo,
unlike certain other companies who do not like the logo to be tampered with in any way even for internal promotions






SUN



The SUN Microsystems logo is a wonderful example of
symmetry and order. It was a brilliant observation that
the letters u and n while arranged adjacent to each
other look a lot like the letter S in a
perpendicular direction.
Spectacular.



Families Marriage

The above are two magazines from the Readers Digest
stable. Again, the attempt to communicate what it is
about quite figuratively through the logo catches my
attention.





Cluenatic


This was a logo created for a puzzle game called Cluenatic. This game involves unravelling four clues.
The logo has the letters C, L, U and E arranged as a maze. and from a distance,
the logo looks like a key



Eight


This logo is too good. For the name Eight, they have
used a font in which each letter is a minor adaptation
of the number 8.

4. Although they don't really care for them, they always have onearound.
5. Although they always have one around them, they always try their luckwith others.
6. Although they try their luck with others, they get really switched off if the woman leaves them.
7. Although the woman leaves them they still don't learn from their mistakes and still try their luck with others.


WOMEN:

1. The most important thing for a woman is financial security.
2. Although this is so important, they still go out and buy expensive clothes and stuff.
3. Although they always buy expensive clothes, they never have somethingto wear.
4. Although they never have something to wear, they always dressbeautifully.
5. Although they always dress beautifully, their clothes are always just"Old Rags".

The Bait !!!!

I have been thinking quite a lot about this lately !!!!

when one does not get what one wants, what should one do ???

the obvious answer  is - move on . But easier said than done !

what makes you stay with that thing,
the very thought of having it with you,
owning it keeps lingering in your mind.

No matter how much you try, it persists....
and the more it persists, the more it hurts,
the more it pains, and your longing for it increases day by day,
you crave for it every second !!!

you try to persuade yourself, punish yourself,
hurt yourself, deny yourself...and yet...it haunts you !!!

is it love ? is it obsession ?
is it stupidity ? or is it determination ?
or mere suffering in the hands of the one you love ???
the one thing you like !?!?!?

What is it that makes a man conquer huge armies, overcome storms,
rule the animals, and yet, bow down.

are they emotions, are they realtions
or one's own hidden factions !!!

What is it ???

When u get what u want, but not what you need,
and your longing doesnt end !!!
grows without bounds,
consuming your each and every thought,
feeding on your emotions,
eating you day and night from within !!!

tell me.....what is it ???

tell me..... what should one do ???

Let Go off the penny dear...

The following is a very meaningful story which is called "Let Go", and written by Dr. Billy Graham.

A little child was playing one day with a very valuable vase. He put his hand into it and could not withdraw it. His father too, tried his best, but all in vain. They were thinking of breaking the vase when the father said, "Now, my son, make one more try. Open your hand and hold your fingers out straight as you see me doing, and then pull."

To their astonishment the little fellow said, "O no, father. I couldn't put my fingers out like that, because if I did I would drop my penny."

Smile, if you will--but thousands of us are like that little boy, so busy holding on to the world's worthless penny that we cannot accept liberation. I beg you to drop the trifle in your heart. Surrender! Let go, and let God have His way in your life.

A Reality Check from Bill Gates

Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about 11 things they
did not and will not learn in school. He talks about how feel-good,
politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no
concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure in the
real world.

Read this to your kids:

Rule 1 : Life is not fair - get used to it!

Rule 2 : The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will
               expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

Rule 3 : You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You
               won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.

Rule 4 : If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.

Rule 5 : Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your
              Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it
              opportunity.

Rule 6 : If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine
              about your mistakes, learn from them.

Rule 7 : Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they
              are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your
              clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were.
              So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's
              generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.

Rule 8 : Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but
               life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and
               they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer.
               This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

Rule 9 : Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off
              and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF.
               Do that on your own time.

Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have
                to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.

Jise hum hain chahte woh bhi chahte hamein to kya baat hoti,
pane ka arman toh thaa, bina maange mil jaata toh kya baat hoti,
is dil main armaan thaeu kitne, woh jaan leta toh kya baat hoti,
humnain maanga tha unhe khuda se, woh bhi hamein maang leta toh kya baat hoti.....

Pyar koi khel nahin jismain jeet ya haar ho,
pyaar koi cheez bhi nahin jo hur waqt tayaar ho,
pyaar woh hai, jab pata ho kisi ne nahin aana,
phir bhi ussi ka intezaar ho....................................

"Love does not consist of gazing at each other,
but in looking together in the same direction"

Jiski jahlak mein karar bahut hai,
uska milna dushwar bahut hai,
jo mere haathon ki lakhiron mein nahi,
ussi shaks se humein pyaar bahut hai...

Mazaa toh humne intezaar mein dekha hai,
Chahat ka asar pyaar mein dekha hai,
Log dhundte hain mandir maszid mein jise,
Uss khuda ko humne apne yaar mein dekha hai...

Na thi jisko humare pyaar ki kadar,
ittefaq se ussi ko chah rahe thay hum,
ussi diye ne jalaaya humare haathon ko,
jisko hawa se bacha rahe thay hum...

Aaina humne tod diya iss khayal se,
shayad takdir badal jaayegi,
humein kya maaloom tha
ki har tukde mein wohi tasveer
nazar aayegi...

Inkaar ko ikraar kehte hain,
khamoshi ko izhaar kehte hain,
yeh duniya bhi pagal hai yaaron,
ek dhokha hai...jise pyaar kehte hain...

-: Its called MINDSET :-

As I was passing the elephants, I suddenly stopped,
confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages.

It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from the ropes they were tied to but for some reason, they did not.

I saw a trainer near by and asked why these beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away.

"Well," he said, "when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it's enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free."

I was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn't, they were stuck right where they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?

A stranger was seated next to a little girl on the airplane when the stranger
turned to her and said, "Let's talk. I've heard that
Flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger."

The little girl, who had just opened her book, closed it slowly and
said to the stranger, "What would you like to talk about?

"Oh, I don't know", said the stranger. "How about nuclear power?"

"OK," she said. "That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you a question first.
A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat grass, the same stuff.
Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse produces clumps of dried grass. Why do you suppose that is?"

The stranger thinks about it and says, "Hmmm, I have no idea,"

To which the little girl replies,
"Do you really feel qualified to discuss nuclear power when you don't know shit?"

Games that mind plays

Of late, i have been thinking, quite absurdly !!!
i hv been seeing things a lot.....things no one can, or ought to !!!

Whats happening to me, i think, n keep searching for the answers within !!!
n suddenly i start seeing clues all around me...

i play Prince of Persia - Warrior Within, only to see the technical team of the game comprising mostly of French people ! The protagonist here embarks on a journey to change his fate. He knows his future, that he is going to be killed by the Guardian of Timeline. Everyone tells him, " You cannot change your fate, No man can....", yet he embarks on the journey. Contrary to everyone, after everything he endured, he succeeds to change his fate.

Its painful.....to know that u are going to die, and there's nothing u can do about it !!!
No one in this world can help u, no one can understand the sheer mental agony u go through. You are all alone, alone to suffer till time comes n tears u apart. You think what did u do to deserve this ??? Why it had to be You ???

And why do i mention all this ???

Coz that was just a game, and this is LIFE !!!
its enigmatic, so much more than one can imagine.

Fiction is obliged to stick to imagination,
Reality isn't.
- Mark Twain

There have been several more instances where my mind has been a la Don Quixote.
But whats the use ??? I kept fooling myself by believing all of them, quite like the heroic characters, overcoming their enemies everytime with much more power n wisdom than before, i could see myself powering up to Super Saiyan Stages (DBZ fans wud be familiar with this terminology ) with emotional agony paving way for the next higher stage of energy within, to win over a yet more powerful 'enemy'. And now, i feel shameful, how i have been fooling myself into believing all this, i cant see any reason how i can be all this.
That fire, that madness to take on the world n prove to it, that u r right, its something that i am lacking of late, or shud i say, for quite some time now !!!

How Women Pick Mates

Science might be able to explain our fascination with Brad Pitt's chiseled jaw and George Clooney's smoldering eyes.

Women seem to judge potential mates by how masculine their features are, new research shows. Men with square jaws and well-defined brow ridges are seen as good short-term partners, while those with more feminine traits such as a rounder face and fuller lips are perceived as better long-term mates.

In the study, 854 male and female subjects viewed a series of male head shots that had been digitally altered to exaggerate or minimize masculine traits. The participants then answered questions about how they expected the men in the photos to behave.

Overwhelmingly, participants said those with more masculine features were likely to be risky and competitive and also more apt to fight, challenge bosses, cheat on spouses and put less effort into parenting. Those with more feminine faces were seen as good parents and husbands, hard workers and emotionally supportive mates [compare examples].

Despite all the negative attributes, when asked who they would choose for a short-term relationship, women still selected the more masculine looking men. Brad and George then would be picks for a brief romance, if not the long haul.

Makes sense

The study, detailed in the December issue of the journal Personal Relationships, reached conclusions similar to research published earlier last year in Britain.

The new study's author, Daniel Kruger at the University of Michigan's School of Public Health, said that from an evolutionary perspective, it makes sense women would view more masculine-looking men as potential flings and less masculine-looking ones as long-term partners.

The key, he said, is testosterone, the hormone responsible for development of masculine facial features and other secondary sexual characteristics.

Testosterone is necessary for development, but can also have detrimental health effects. It has been shown, for example, to interfere with the body's immune response, so men who are able to maintain high levels of the hormone are typically strong and healthy-traits women would want to pass on to their progeny.

Increased testosterone has also been linked to male cheating and violence in relationships, so while these men might produce high quality offspring, they don't always make great parents or faithful mates, Kruger says.

The study suggests women could be equipped to use seemingly superficial characteristics "as a cue to pick up on trends in these behavioral strategies," Kruger said.

Get a clue

There are plenty of these signals in the animal world. Male peacocks' huge, outrageous tails can make foraging for food and evading predators difficult, but the plumage, which many researchers say indicates male fitness, is so effective at luring females that the trait has been preserved in the population, Kruger points out.

While the findings are compelling, the scientific community has typically greeted the field of physiognomy, which links facial characteristics to certain behavioral traits, with skepticism.

Kruger argues, however, that the research is a valuable tool for understanding mating strategies. And, of course, for explaining how Pitt and Clooney managed to snag People Magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive" title two times each-it might have to do with their genes, but could also have something to do with ours

Why We're Not All Beautiful?????

A new study explains why we aren't all born with Brad Pitt's perfectly chiseled features or Angelina Jolie's pouty lips.

A long-standing thorn in the side of biologists has been the difficulty in accounting for the enormous variation between individuals when sexual selection by females for the most attractive mates should quickly spread the "best" genes through a population.

"It is a major problem for evolutionary biology," said study team leader Marion Petrie of Newcastle University.

The lek paradox

For some species, females select the most attractive males to mate with: female peacocks will choose males with the longest tail feathers-the peacock version of George Clooney. These more attractive features usually indicate some other level of genetic fitness, such as disease resistance, that the female's offspring will then also inherit.

According to this method of sexual selection, if females only bred with the most attractive males, then all males should be equally attractive and sexual selection could not take place. (In the peacocks' case, all males would have similarly long tails.) But clearly this isn't the case: for every Johnny Depp out there, there's a George Costanza-in humans, birds and other animals alike.

This so-called "lek paradox" (a lek is a group of males congregated for mating) has plagued evolutionary biologists for decades.

"If you had no variation at all, you wouldn't get evolution,"

But a group of British scientists think they have found the answer to the paradox in the human body's "DNA repair kits."

DNA repair kits

A cell's DNA repair kit is not really a kit but a set of molecular processes that routinely repair the damage done to the cell's DNA that result in genetic mutations, under normal conditions. Mutations can be harmful and cause tissue to degenerate, malfunction or develop cancers. Other mutations are beneficial, such as those in the part of the genome responsible for disease defense that make an individual more resistant to attacks from bacteria and viruses.

Some mutations affect the repair processes themselves and make them less efficient which results in more mutations as the damage goes unrepaired.

"You can raise or lower your own mutation rate,"

A higher mutation rate creates more diversity in a population. Using a computer model, Petrie found that the greater genetic diversity created by mutations that affect DNA repair outweighed the decrease in diversity arising from sexual selection.

In some of her earlier work, Petrie showed that men with greater genetic diversity in areas of the genome relating to disease defense were also rated as more attractive by women. So because these males with greater mutation rates are more likely to mate, they will pass that higher rate on to their offspring, allowing sexual selection to propagate variation through the population, a finding that likely applies to all organisms.

This propagation means that peacocks' tail feathers will vary in length and that some of us definitely won't be America's next top model.

Things People do for their Computer, Ah...the problems they face...!!!

True telephone conversations recorded from various Help Desks around the U.K

Yeh Engineer kaun hota hai papa ???!?!?!?!?!

Engineer woh hai jo aksar phasta hai
interviews ke sawaal mae
badi companiyon ki chaal mae
boss aur client ke bawaal mae

Engineer woh hai jo pak gaya hai
meetings ki jhelai mae
submissions ki gehrai mae
teamwork ki chatai mae

Engineer woh hai jo laga rahta hai
schedule ko failane mae
targets ko khiskaane mae
roz naye-naye bahane mae

Engineer woh hai jo khoya hai
reminders ke jawaab mae
na milne wale hisaab mae
behtar bhavishya ke khwaab mae

Engineer woh hai jise intezaar hai
weekend night manane ka
boss ke chhutti jaane ka
increment ki khabar aane ka

Engineer woh hai jo
lunch time mae breakfast karta hai
dinner time mae lunch karta hai
commutation ke waqt soya karta hai

Engineer woh hai jo pagal hai
chai aur samose ke pyar mae
cigeratte ke khumar mae
birdwatching ke vichar mae

Engineer woh hai jo sochta hai
kaash padhai pe dhyaan diya hota
kaash teacher se panga na liya hota
kaash ishq na kiya hota..............

300

Before starting to write some serious stuff about the movie, i must mention that there were a few 'other' stories realted to it as well.

Bon, alors.....

I liked the storyline. The movie had immense potential.

The story is all about belief and faith.

Interestingly, i came across the difference in faith and beleif as the linguistics define it...
Faith is something which u have because of your conditioning, the way u hv been brought up.
Whereas beleif is something u do by your own will !!!

If you beleive in yourself, and have faith then nothing is impossible !!!

It teaches us about responsibility. If you are true, and u know you can bring about a change , then its not your choice, but your responsibilty to do so.

ONE NIGHT @ THE CALL CENTRE


Okay…so this is my first book after “The Da Vinci Code” ….

N I loved it. I don’t know why some people declared it as a boring one…but I liked it, may be because I didn’t compare it with 5 point someone…


This book had 5 characters Shyam, Vroom, Priyanka, Esha, Radhika n Military Uncle, …okay that makes 6 of ‘em in total !!!

Since the book has been written as if narrated by shyam, so I’m gonna talk about him, vroom n of course her lady love…Priyanka.

Well its been a long time since I has started this post as a draft and m completin it after months !!!!

So I guess I should just explain my gist of the story, what I saw !

There is a Shyam in all of us !!! An insecure guy craving for some things but just finds himself helpless.

Oh so much he wants that thing but just finds it slipping away from his hands… the tighter he tries to grip it, the more slippery it becomes.

How can he hold onto it??? Can he just let go the things which were once his???
Which he could have cherished forever ???

And then, something happens to him. He realizes that he will lose everything if he doesn't break loose. Contrary to the normal, he decides to part ways with this thing, accompanied by breaking away all that bound him.

But he had trust in himself (to be completed........)

Pretty 'NEAT'

Today... was a special day.
A day I wouldn't like to forget for a long time !!!

Today I saw what youth is all about...the true vigor that runs, or should run , through the veins of 20 year old boy.

Today is when I felt that I had missed on this part of life altogether.
Today is when I saw the 'uth ' part of life that most people keep bragging about !!!

Today is when I saw emotions soar high, situations gettin intense and that raw energy emerging as the stealth winners !!!
This is also the kinda stuff that should be built within us.
This is also the way it should sometimes be !!!

The three B's that go together pretty well - Boys, Booze and Babes ;)

Today....was the first time I went to a DISCO !!!! lolzzzz....

My Love...

My Love...
Everybody wants to know her name...
only she doesn't.
What's on her mind! I guess everybody knew...
only I didn't...

Why she talks to my friends beside me,
but not me...

Why she steals a glance...
and pushes a smile at me...

...Why she invites me over to her house...

Why she doesn't say no,
no matter what I ask for...

Why she plays hide n seek in a song...
why she makes me dream her...
why doesn't she let me sleep...

Why she tries to spy into my eyes...
Why she always finds me,
no matter where I try to hide !!!

My Love...
Everybody wants to know her name...
only she doesn't.
What's on her mind! I guess everybody knew...
only I didn't...
