Sita sings the blues

Chanced upon this on Roger Ebert's blog . Was intrigued.

Though the trailer was kinda cute, I was disappointed that the trailer didn't have any jazz music. But luckily chanced upon this other clip.... Now I badly wanna watch it...

Minister of 'Duh'

Ever since the Mumbai incident, the papers have been carrying one  statement a day from Mr. Pranab Mukherji, who has been giving us tidbits from his pool of infinite wisdom. Some of my favourites have been...

"We have to deal with this on our own."
"Mumbai attack was well planned"
"We have to take necessary measures...."
"Nobody is talking about military action"
"Time will tell..."
"What we are telling the government of Pakistan is to act"

Sources have leaked that the next week's papers are going to carry the following quotes
"We have a large population"
"I have to pee thrice every night..."
"Killing is bad,..and wrong..Weeoh!"
"Nation must stand strong"

Maybe someone can come up with a Pranab Mukherji statement generator and put this man out of his misery,

Let’s get this straight…

A person who has 'put mala' with the intention of going to Sabarimalai is called a 'swami'. I get it.

A sadist who flouts traffic rules, shows general disregard for people, spits ghutka liberally on the streets , and knowingly uses his BO as a means to make people's live miserable is an asshole.

And if the asshole is wearing a black shirt and intends to go to Sabari malai…he is an asshole swami.

There are no two ways about it.

Pending lists

I have barely even finished my 'balti list ' and I realized that the new year is coming up. Which means time for resolutions..... as most of you know, I prefer Birthday resolutions, since they give me an extra week. (Hint: Birthday coming up)

So I gotta get to work on both lists....

Predict the worm

Forget about what this line graph is depicting..... using nothing but your ugly gut, can you let me know how you think this line will go in the future?

And while you are at it, let me know what you think this line represents..... mail me a mvikram dot 79 at gmail.com

Nerd in the iron mask

Sometime during the final year of my graduation, I resolved to have a makeover. I was tired of being known as the computer geek and wanted a 'cooler' image. Moreover it was getting tiring as every friend, and friend's friend called me for PC fixing. And my dream of having a buxom babe call me over on the pretext of a computer incident remained.

So out went the mustachioed geek, and vikram 2.0 (uh oh!) was born. But as I found out eventually, (and you realized when i mentioned the version number) the geek was  far from gone. He makes his appearance every now and then...thankfully without the mouche....

The latest example was my obsession over my latest gimmick. So please indulge me and let me narrate how I logged into my laptop now.

1) I turned it on.
2) I looked at the screen


That's it. I installed a face recognition software. For the uninitiated, its the same thing that Saif Ali Khan talks about in the Lenovo ad.

After several unsuccessful attempts, and then finally babysitting my laptop while it downloaded the entire 83 MB of it, i managed to set up a system which logs into my PC. Something I have ....uh..been doing for ages at a much faster pace.  But at least the evildoers who take away my laptop would not be able to break in and steal my downloaded songs..unless they type in 'abc' as my password....

The geek made quite a few appearances more this week. He made me spend (waste?) nearly 1 thousand bucks for a software for the mobile which will turn it into a universal remote control. 

I wanna watch the Hulk movie again since I have a newfound sympathy for Bruce Banner.
