New entry in the list of Natural Calamities........

Well, am not really going to write some content for a school book on what natural calamities mean, but then looks like we'll soon have to add Bomb Blasts and Terrorism to the list of the other disastrous natural calamities..... How else would you explain the terrorism attacks happening in India today? Just like we have no hold on Earthquakes, High-tides, Cyclones, Flood, and Volcanic Eruption, it seems that we have no hold on the Bomb Blasts and Terror attacks that shake the country today. Not a single day goes by without some news of bomb, terror, fire and attack. Every paper and news cast has one of these words on their news item all the time. Children grow up seeing and hearing of these things. We go to a movie theatre and there the situation is worse. Not a single movie in town today is clear of attack and stunts. Don't explain that a commercial movie needs such things to me.....At least once in a while children should get to watch things that meet the standards of th

Classic Project Management - Indian Wedding Muhurat

I was talking about Project Management to a senior friend of mine....He told me about the most striking analogy from a lecture that he once attended on Project Management. The lecture goes to say that the best example of Project Management is the Indian Wedding Muhurath . [ pronounced as 'Mo' as in 'Move'[Mu] , 'Who' as in 'Whose'[ Hu ] ' , 'Ru' as in 'Rumble'[Ra] , ' th ' as in 'thrive'[ th ]. I am sure you can 'google' the word, but to put it in simple words: Muhurath is the chosen moment when the bride and the groom get married. Different customs are followed to mark this celestial moment of matrimony. In traditional weddings, a number of elaborate rituals precede and succeed the ' Muhurath '. The bride's parents and the groom's parents agree to get the wedding done on a specific date and time. For the guy and the girl, this event means 'Engagement' where they get formally engage

What is the poiint??

What is the point in sitting in a class and not listening to the lecture? What is the point in writing something without comprehending the meaning? What is the point in going to a party without the enthusiasm? What is the point in teaching without knowing the concept? What is the point in managing without knowing project management? What is the point in buying more and more when you don't want to 'give' away things you don't use anymore? What is the point in earning money when you cant save some of it? What is the point in asking questions when you don't want to know the answer? What is the point in eating when you cannot appreciate the dish? What is the point in saying 'yes' when you want to say 'no'? Simple : Time pass!!! :) and appropriate pay off in terms of experience in each of these instances :)

The Quantum of Solace

I went for this movie yesterday not because am a great fan of James Bond movies, but because I can catch up with some of my friends. I read the movie reviews upfront and got a sea of mixed review comments... Time to write my own.. I am not a major fan of English movies, and definitely not of Noisy movies, still I can say this much about the movie : basically Good, very Noisy, moderately Intelligent, and extremely Tiring. I surely expected more for all the hype it had created among the fans.
