Enter the Joker
It is a deceit
the eyes so wicked
and the mouth is,
ready to eat.

let the lights not dim
your sense of judgement
throw a glance and

Live Your Life #BefikarUmarBhar

February 17, 2015 3 Comments

It was an unusual Sunday Noon when I was watching a movie on the TV with my nephew- Piu. Now if you follow my blogs, you would know a little about Pihu. I call it unusual cause these days I do not get to meet Pihu that Often. He is growing up and has school regime to follow with his various other classes including one in Karate. Karate Kid as I would often call him these days, has always this complain that I am not spending enough time with him. Point noted and guilty as found. In the hustle and screeching bustle of my life, I have kind of forgotten living. In the endless pursuit of our career goals, personal ambition and working towards making a brighter future, read a healthy and “financially independent” future, we live too much in stress.

It is the dream that does not let us sleep. And this sleeplessness is causing all the confusion. I somehow get jealous with people who have lot of time and less of work. Seriously yes. I envy their carefree life. My deep thoughts were broken by the sudden voice of my nephew who was curious to know what is Bucket list as discussed in the movie. Yes we were watching the superhot and awe inspiring mvie- The Bucket list. Well talk of co-incidences.

It is then I paused my thought and so did my TV, and went ahead explaining Pihu about the Bucket list, meaning and relevance to the movie so he could concur the plot well and enjoy the film. The curiosity did not end there and Pihu was compelled to explore the concept of Bucket list more. Being his usual buck, the query has to obviously stop at me. I was not taken for surprise when he asked what is my Bucket list and if I have thought about him while making one. Hmm Tough questions the kids ask.

While we do contemplate a lot of “to-dos” in life  but I have not made any bucket list for self except few random wishes here and there. It was time that we decided to take a small break post the end of movie and discuss it further. Pihu agreed and that gave me sometime during the movie to think about my Bucket list.

My Bucket list
If I have to think about the top 5 things that may feature in my Bucket list, basis the top of mind recall, I would think of the following-
  1. Own a house, a car, some property and become a successful entrepreneur and then do not do much work  but write poetry in my plush lawn :)
  2. Yes off course I wanted to go around the world and see some magnificent places
  3. Open a charitable trust in my name for the needy ones ranging from Human to animals. So that I can give back some love to the world full of suffering
  4. This one is special- I want to be among Top 5 Bloggers in the world and be known to everyone across the Globe. It is rather tad too ambitious but if there has to be something like bucket list, it has to be this.
  5. Give the world of happiness to my family including my parents. I will spend as much time with my family as possible. 

 I know everyone has their own dreams and aspirations, well these were mine. How about you?

Rape, She Fought

February 09, 2015 , 14 Comments

Action Figures by Edith Vonnegut

Women, they say is
a sister, a mother
who bore the child of mankind
and gives birth
to the men

Unfortunately, Alas
All they could see 
is the explicit gratification
and a vainglorious display

There is more to a woman
than the sexually she got
her sensuality and hot bod.
She wages a war
a war, everyday
at every step of her life.
in an attempt to douse,
douse the flame
and all that in-fame 
that the men folk bring to her

Where are the super heroes?
the one she called supermen?
fallen, failed disguises, Statues
Only a costume drama to claim.
what rights and who bestow?
taking on a woman's liberty
not protecting her vanity
her purity, her sanity
but mocking her every base
making her stumble,
fumble at the warring staircase

Even the feline grok
and wondered at all the bloke
who plunders their own soil, empathizes 
the women' turmoil

O Men, what a shame
to humanity
have you bought?
Open your hearts,
clean your mind
Vacuum and tumble dry.

she curses every breath,
The struggle above
and underneath
springs out the wrought
The women who nurture the men,
brings him to life, feed and taught
Instead of getting her dues
Its her pilferage
and rape, that she Fought!

Boogie Woogie Nights

February 04, 2015 7 Comments


Women and Men folklore
do party galore
The night is still young
Let food and wine flow
Spring up your daisy
Set the decor,
wear your dancing shoes
Shake your booty
Let the music flow,
come one, lets burn the floor
Take your positions
make your moves
It is time to groove
The Boogie- Woogie Nights Return

Chat Quikr, without Fikr

Chat Quikr, without Fikr

The world is wrapping up in conveniences. Technology enabled conveniences. The sudden thrust of technology innovation and advent of new cellular technology has given new dimensions to way businesses happen in the world. It is a Y2K world and machine has found new prudence to enable business and consumer platforms, hence making it easier, faster, quicker and convenient to foster the end to end communication and correspondence.
However, as technology progresses, new mechanisms and alternate modes are being introduced. Earlier, it was Call center of voice based system wherein consumer will correspond with given company basis the nature of their requirement. Like enquiry of new products, buying/ selling and also raising complains.

Even the marketplace is converging. The hitherto physical commerce has enveloped in to- at your service, door step and “just a call away service”. The physical boundaries of marketplace is fast dissolving.  The best example is e-commerce. You need not step outside your door step and still can  buy almost same products/ services as available in market. Isn’t it wonderful? Well, the innovation has taken new wings when e-portal like Quikr has introduced not just buying but has also enabled- Selling services at the convenience of your fingertips. 

Quikr cover

Quikr NXTIn one of my previous post, I have written about the Bangalore Quikr and how relocation to Bangalore has made simpler with Quikr. I remember lot of my fellow co-bloggers talking about the unnecessary calls and numbers exposure issues that they or their friends or acquaintances have faced in past. Well, when technology develops, it is inevitable to prevent probable misuse of the technology. However, necessary filters could be made to protect genuine buyers and sellers, read customer’s interest and ensure stickiness to brand. Keeping up with customer friendly trend, Quikr has also enabled the new age chat technology to further enhance customer’s experience and streamlining to ensure a more hassle free process.

Online classifieds website Quikr on Wednesday announced the launch of a new feature, called Quikr Nxt, which allows users to chat using the website or mobile app. This means users can choose to make a listing private, which hides their email ID and phone number on the site.

Why I prefer Chat over phone call?
Well my reasons are simple. They are-
  1. Privacy- Like I mentioned hitherto, privacy is very important as you can interact with multiple other users who are interested in your ad whether it is to buy or sell, without disclosing much of your identity unless you are comfortable or closing the deal A great respite from sharing the number and getting calls at random hours, from random users.
  2. Chat at your convenience- Like I said, you need not have handle calls at random hours. The interested buyer or seller can approach you, and you can check and reply at your convenient time. For me that is quite a USP
  3. Chat Archives- You need not have to remember details of every conversation that you had with a user with regard to price or product specification. The chat archive acts as a ready reckoner and decision making tool.

Well, they were my top 3 reasons as in why I prefer Chat conversations over calls. How about you?
