    Another 26th July?

    It has been raining right since Sunday morning, and it has been pouring all through Sunday night to Monday morning. Can still hear the thunder and rain outside as I get ready for work. While I have to go to work, I’m well aware that most of the roads in Mumbai and Navi Mumbai are going to be flooded. Travelling is going to be a nightmare. I’m just hoping for the good of Mumbai, we don’t face another 26th July.

    A Nightmare in Public Transport

    Had to attend my Grandma’s birthday party last evening and since my bike was giving problems I decided to use public transport to get back home from work. Left my workplace a little after 3.30pm and hitched a ride with a colleague heading towards Thane. His plans changed and I had to get off at Rabale and find a bus or auto heading towards Airoli. For those who aren’t aware, the transport in Navi Mumbai SUCKS! After a good deal of waiting I a 513 arrived and I jumped in as it heads towards Mulund.

    Hindustan Times @250/yr

    Mom just subscribed to the Hindustan Times Corporate Offer @ 250. You get an annual subscription of Hindustan Times for only Rs. 250/- plus a Tupperware kit (good one, I personally checked this out 😉 ) I don’t know how good the newspaper is. Reading the Economic Times consumes a good amount of my travelling time, so I don’t think I will get much chance reading yet another newspaper! On a lighter note, selling the newspaper you collect over the year as raddii (scrap) will give you approximately Rs. 300, which means you get to read the paper and also make a profit out of it! 😉 :O Now, where…

    Hutch Network gone to the dog?

    Firstly my apologies to dog lovers. Am just using the phrase. Ever since Hutch took over Orange in Mumbai, the future doesn’t seem so bright anymore! Besides getting rather erratic signal, I’ve experienced loads of cross connection problems. And this hasn’t happened to just me! What is even more surprising is that a full signal drops several units the moment I answer a call! Technology usually gets better with time. Here we are actually seeing a drop in performance! I’ve been using Hutch for over five years now and this number for two, and so am a little reluctant to shift 🙁 But, if I have to, I will! Let…

    Rains in Mumbai

    This is probably the first place that reports this. Don’t know why but it just started raining this morning. Seen quite a heavy shower accompanied by loud thunder. Ecological imbalance? Passing clouds? Passing storms? Let’s see what the weather department has to say about these rains….. Update: It drizzled all of today and stopped only late evening. These have been termed as “pre-monsoon” showers by the weather bureau.

    36 Christian Ways to Reduce Stress

    An Angel says, “Never borrow from the future. If you worry about what may happen tomorrow and it doesn’t happen, you have worried in vain. Even if it does happen, you have to worry twice.” 1. Pray 2. Go to bed on time. 3. Get up on time so you can start the day unrushed. 4. Say No to projects that won’t fit into your time schedule, or that will compromise your mental health. 5. Delegate tasks to capable others. 6. Simplify and unclutter your life. 7. Less is more. (Although one is often not enough, two are often too many.) 8. Allow extra time to do things and to…

    If it’s December it’s Christmas time

    * Above image courtesy My Yahoo! I should have posted this on December 1, but well it’s finally December and this is the month I always wait for eagerly every here. Well Christmas is less than three weeks away. Are you prepared for it? Well, I’m not asking if your wardrobe is all stocked and your dresses are ready. Nor am I asking if your house is decorated with that beautiful Christmas tree. I’m asking if you are ready for the birth of our Savior Lord Jesus Christ! I know I’m not. But hope to be within three weeks!
