hah, well iam the editor in chief of my blog,  and i guess im on vacation now!!!

Can feel the aura of happiness flying all around me now.Announcing its Vishu!!

Last few days had been miserable; the fever, sorethroat, missing the volleyball match( we lost in final, sad!)  didnt even get time for blogging or reading much.

But its vishu  here. Wish to see the flowers of cassia Fistula @my college again. it was flowered when i was leaving there a few days ago.

cassia fistula- vishu kanni

Next two days, im all booked for my family and dear friends. By the way, where are you guys??

vishu

Want to get some crackers, fireworks, get the whole house lit with diyas and yup, i wish to take a resolution to be veg for vishu alone. I could take it for tomorrow as well, but i guess i know where i will be if iam with my friends tomorrow. Chicken Biriyani in air, hehe..

I havent tried if there is Hyderabadi Biriyani from calicut, should hunt down at paragon or zains if they serve it..Got the idea from the menu details of Sania’s wedding!!

I miss my best friends these days. But its ok, life has to move on.

love you all..

So, listening to Lucky Ali’s track  after a long time. Old tracks!! wow, feels very nostalgic and may be its the music, iam all the healthy back again. Love you, Ali( dont take it as a gay sense, controversy buffs!!)

what would our lives be if the Government banned music here? cant even imagine.

As iam writing this a group of people visited my home for monetary help for a charitable society supporting cancer patients. it was good to hear their story. i have been earlier involved with a pain and palliative society and i know how hard it is to see some patients in the last stage of their life. God, please take their pain away from them. My prayers for all of them.

i look miserable now, without a shave for the last few days. When i told them them about me, they looked at me as if iam lying. Did had to explain them that its the fever!!!hehe..so, the next big thing after this entry, iam to get a clean shave!!

Speaking of the people who collect money from door to door, reminds me of something! actually, a group of people from a temple ( cant name them) were at home seeking money. But this was different. Because, it was an urge to buy a divine idol and they promised that it would remove all our problems!! so, my dear mom actually, got the brochure and asked them to come later. When i was home and i read the brochure, i decided that i would neither buy or contribute money.

The reason was because, in the pamphlet it was written like few people didnt buy this idol and were met with ill fate and certain people were blessed with huge fortunes etc after they took this. I felt it more like an emotional blackmailing.

What would you genuinely do if you could afford the thing they were saying and yet didnt want to buy it! or if they came to you and you didnt have the money to afford it!

In both ways, i dont believe my fate is decided by any of these. But imagine the emotional blackmail it does.

Religion and beliefs make us a complete man and it is part of our identity and in that way iam a secular. But think about being misinterpreted on our religion. I dont want someone else to manipulate my life or  be it my religious existence. I found the pamphlet to be ridiculous. My mother was keen that we pay them for their cause, but i said No.

Why do people go to seek peace in saints and other Godmen before looking for peace in their home?? May be they do get real comfort being with them, but have they really checked for peace in the life around them.

I find peace in a lot of things around me, my family, my friends, my world. I prefer to introduce them as mine, because they form a part of my identity, because iam a lesser man, without them.

Then what?

yup, Sania mirza is

wedding bells

married and again i know Shoaib is wearing a black sherwani and Sania is wearing her mother’s nikah dress, there will be hyderabadi biriyani(ooh God, i need one right now, the last time i was at Hyderabad, was for my Cousin’s wedding!!)

But why do the biggest television channel need to show us upto date information on this. Ofcourse the TRP!! i guess they stop it after the wedding is over!! Rumors heard that Sania is given mohar of 61 lakh’s.

My dearest friends in the media, are we run out of topics. its almost like the trending topic of twitter, ever since i have joined all i hear is “justin Beiber” i think i like that guy now!! yeah, thats it, you feed them 24*7, you start developing stockholm syndrome!!

so, i here i go for my vishu celebrations. see you soon guys.

love,

be good,God bless

over the past few years, there has been a rapid growth in the number of social networking sites and many of them are immensely popular and the fact that you are in my page means you are also probably available in one or more of the various social networks like Orkut, myspace, facebook etc

But the above statement, i found from a tweet from  Sara Haider (Pandemona), made me think about the same. Most of us would agree with doing the same. so, the rather bigger question is why is twitter so popular??

Some of the reason’s include that it is

Fast

Ad free

Simple

Track your celebrities

Due to all these reason’s twitter is actually very fast.

Since its creation in 2006 by Jack Dorsey, Twitter has gained notability and popularity worldwide. It is sometimes described as “SMS of the Internet. The use of Twitter’s application programming interface for sending and receiving text messages by other applications often eclipses direct use of Twitter.

What we have to do is deliver to people the best and freshest most relevant information possible. We think of Twitter as it’s not a social network, but it’s an information network. It tells people what they care about as it is happening in the world.

—Evan Williams

Twitter is a social networking and microblogging service that enables its users to send and read messages known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters displayed on the author’s profile page and delivered to the author’s subscribers who are known as followers. Senders can restrict delivery to those in their circle of friends or, by default, allow open access. Since late 2009, users can follow lists of authors instead of following individual authors. All users can send and receive tweets via the Twitter website, Short Message Service (SMS) or external applications

Apart from the convenience of keeping our writing short, it also provides an excuse for having poor grammar and abbreviations.

It empasises on providing a feel you have never had before. Unlike the orkut or any other social servicing websites, twitter act more like a personal module where celebrities can interact their voices without being disturbed. You can follow them and get access to most of the things you would have never heard from them. i personally use twitter to read medical journal’s from sites such as Mayo clinic, certain organization’s i volunteer such as the Red cross. But twitter also helps me to get updates on my favorite cricketers, film stars(including SRK, sonam kapoor, lizaraniray…) or listen to philosophy from Paulo coelho or Dalailama, Articles from Paul krugman, mashable, timoriely to Bill gates or watch detail’s of Astronauts from Nasa.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE AT TWITTER.

Having a lot of friend’s make you feel that you are popular.

The best advantage however i found about twitter is the fact that it indirectly act as a medium for backdoor marketing.

Having good friend’s are always helpful in the twitter world.

“Google before you tweet” is the new “think before you speak”

so, i find surrounded by lot of people who seem to know everything about everything. Some of the best things i have had from my recent twitter experience (ofcourse, i do tweet nowadays) is that i been able to interact personally with some of the great people in the field of medicine, read their articles even before they reach my college library and recieve updates from them. I follow some of the pioneer’s in medicine and i feel i myself have learned a lot from them, so before i interact with them, i need to be completely sure about my knowledge on that subject. or again, i was recently tweeting with a very beautiful lady about Justin Beiber and to this minute i really dont care/know who JB is, but i did google and find all about him to help me have an hour of safe conversation!!!(sorry about that, but it is true)

Other than that, twitter is an important platform to spread word about your works.

Also, having a lot of friend’s is very assuring and helpful.

so, what are you waiting for, if you are not there in twitter, check the follow me sign on the right side of this page and join me at twitter.

HAppy tweeting
