Aik thi chidiya..aik tha chiddaa...

ये वो कहानी है जो मम्मी मुझे बचपन में सुनती थी ....
...
...
एक थी चिडिया,एक था चिद्दा.चिडिया लायी चावल का दाना चिद्दा लाया दाल का दाना दोनों ने पकाई खिचडी.
खिचडी जब पक गयी तो चिडिया बोली-"कितना अच्चा होता की खिचडी के साथ घी होता.बड़ा मज़ा आता ." तो चिद्दा बोला- "तेरी बात तोः सही है चिडिया रानी!ठीक है मै अभी घी लेके आता हु ".फिर चिद्दा तोह गया उड़. घोंसले में कौन बचा?चिडिया रानी और खिचडी .
..
..
पूरी खिचडी को देख के चिडिया को आ गयी लालच और खा गयी वो पूरी खिचडी. जब उसने डकार ली तो उससे याद आया की चिद्दा तोह घी लेने गया था बहार . ये ध्यान आते ही वो जोर जोर से रोने लगी और अपने आपको बचाने के लिए उसने घर का दरवाज़ा बंद किया और एक बक्से के नीचे घुस कर छूप गयी .

BOOK REVIEWS......

Just got through a book " The White Tiger " written by Mr Arvind Adiga, the Booker Prize Winner from India & let me be very precise, this book ÷*+?ed my mind badly. Please don't read this book.

The story revolves around a poor village boy Balram who grows up to become a driver of one " Seedha saadha " Mr Ashok, son of a cruel landlord whom he( Arvind ) calls as "stork" all the time.
Later He kills Mr Ashok & flees with his own nephew Dharam & 7 lac rupee to B'lore, live by Ashok's name, use all corrupt tactics & becomes an entrepreneur of sort. Balram starts his own " Pick up & drop " taxi service for the employees of Call centres & MNC's.

Balram's story, ( which do not finishes off properly ) depicts an open drama in the democratic loopholes in India. But the book just Fails to impress anybody. Mr Jiabao, the premier of China is just unnecessarily dragged & he has no roles except to hear …

Mmmmmuaaah BEST buses...

Great things comes out with nice surprises like with the BEST buses....
The BEST bus service in Mumbai recently started off tickets of two denominations Rs 15 & Rs 25.
With Rs 15 ticket, you could travel within a radius of 25 kilometers from the point You bought your ticket, just anywhere in Mumbai. And with Rs 25 ticket, AKHKHA Mumbai is yours. In sundays, the cost of Rs 25 ticket reduces to Rs 20.

One great thing about this weired looking scrap of paper with Marathi digits over it ( Which could hardly be understood, there is always a confusion between three & six, two & nine ) is that if you just want to see whole of Mumbai, go on for a shopping, or see Mumbai chics :p, feel like flying on a flyover or let that cool breeze pass by your hair, you are just 25 rupees & a BEST bus stop away ( Half of Mumbai for Rs 15 remember ! ). Just eat a wholesome food & go on for your expeditious joyride voyage. You may have to stand for sometime, you may have to get stuffed in t…

Dreams of the poor & rich.

The dreams of the rich & the dreams of the poor never overlap...
....
The poor dream all their lives of getting enough to eat & looking like the rich.
...
And what do the rich dream of ?
...
Loosing weight and look like the poor.

Feel the need of an effective reminder service..

Although we have gadgets for reminders, the data we feed in (& often not) gets haywire. Finally , back to square one, a piece of paper & a pen is all we need.
..

But even that has infeasible in our "day to day no bag baggages life.". A good phone, which has all the functions, is all we need, I wish these smart phones also have an effective reminder service. Easy to feed in your rendezvous, no hassles of mind & time & a proper alarm which could remind you well in time.Not at the the event is to happen.
