Glimpses of India......

MEMORIES OF INDIA .Just click ,watch and Enjoy !!

Amazing slideshow by Kansas Univ. Cultural India Club (KUCIC)

Damn !

My computer seemed infested with adware and was not functioning properly.Hence i called up the 1800 OK COMPAQ for assistance.First,The call was picked up at our own velacherry call center and the guy took my details. He spoke in Tamil and gave a feel of India to me :-)
But, he did inform me that i needed to pay since am out of warranty...(It was 3 am IST...pity him). I paid the service charge and again my call was transferred to technical support desk at Canada .Here,the Tech support guy was on the phone for atleast couple of hours and told me to change some settings..blah blah. Since am a non computer professional, i had no idea of what he told me to do..i just did what he said..YES..he finally told me to "use the Recovery CD and reformat my system"..Damn again..I called for support and this seemed an easy way out..If i had known to use recovery CD (i lost all the stored files)....I wouldnot have spent 2 hours on the phone and above all $120 + Tax as charges..

My friend got this 500 INR when he purchased a Mumbai Express CD at Chennai.I got wild when he showed it to me.Does this mean that our INR is considered so cheap to be imitated for advertisment?? One can see "I LOVE YOU" statements or Gandhi Meesai in our Currency.
WILL RBI TAKE STRICT ACTIONS AGAINST ANYONE THAT DEGRADE OUR CURRENCY?? Posted by Hello

Vivek..Are you listening ??

I pity you Mr.Vivek Oberoi. I wish you had stayed away like our own Kollywood reel life heroes from Tsunami rehabilitation efforts and in the meantime, you could have churned out couple of cool movies.
Its disheartening to read news about you HERE and THERE and EVERY
WHERE

Listen up!!

I got few experiences to share with Ya folks..Thanks to Kay for tickling my blog bulb.

WATCH THIS SHORT FILM

In NYC, One can see atleast 3 chinese Takeouts within a distance of 3-5 blocks.The guys out there speak little english..Once i had gone there with my friend for a takeout. After packing our food,the woman at the counter asked us whether we wanted "hasa sosa" ..my friend replied "dosa"...She was fazed..

Well..She meant if we wanted HOT SAUCE or SOY SAUCE..

Most of my Colleagues that i work along with ,always wonder how Indians could be Polyglots?

(BTW,just look at the pics below and leave your impressions.CHANDRAMUKHI SPECIAL.......Thanks!)

Arranged Marriages...

I think Y'all have experienced this question...

Iam often asked by colleagues here as How arranged marriages work in India and how could one join in life without knowing each other ??..

I give a simple answer..LIFE IS NOTHING BUT GIVE AND TAKE ..and ARRANGED MARRIAGE WORKS, WORKED FOR CENTURIES IN OUR TRADITION AND WILL CONTINUE SO..Am i right??

Yet, the definition of marriage widely varies from east to west..I think Indian expectations from marriage involve something like security, providing for each other, dependability. Love ranks quite low. In American and other cultures...love and compatibility ranks very high. They don't care how reliable and dependable the partner is...if there is no love they don't get married.

What Y'all say???
