POWER OF IMAGINATION

While going through a number of other blogs,( which I keep doing all time) Ive found a blog called BLOGDHABA which was quite humorous and the jokes on marriage were very good. Given that I had a bad day the day I read the blog, the posts really made me smile a few minutes.

jus click at this place which i feel is a fine example of creativity. Folks, just sit back and enjoy this .

One confession Ive really got to make at this point as the thought of creativity has cropped up. before a few years, Ive thought myself to be one of the most creative writers and was over obsessed with the fact that I didnt get good opportunity. But after entering this blogosphere Ive got to admit that I stand nowhere when it comes to posting some stuff that entertains my readers( though I haven’t got any niche readers) . But Im thinking of posting humorous stuff that entertains people . Most of my posts have been a sort of preach me the rule kinda thing.

One fellow blogger rating my blog said that she would wait to read a post that a good prose, poetry etc; I must say I’m very thankful to her for her comment or suggestion ( whatever it is) .

What Kind a Blogger am I?

While surfing through others’ blogs, I have come across such thing WHAT KIND OF A BLOGGER ARE YOU ?

So, I decided to give it a shot and I was found to be a LIFE BLOGGER . Really have no clue of what it means, but I was really honest in filling up the questionnaire.
I suggest all the Blogger fraternity to take part .
I’M A LIFE BLOGGER


You Are a Life Blogger!


Your blog is the story of your life – a living diary.

If it happens, you blog it. And make it as entertaining as possible.

No One’s Tagged me

Of late, Ive been reading a number of blogs and in most of the blogs where the author had a neighborhood of bloggers in friends or peers were tagged. Tagged seemed quite interesting to me as it reminded me of the rapid fire round of Koffee with Karan. In tagged , you have a questionnaire of 30 odd questions which are most likely to be casual and need not scratch your scalp to answer them. In a way, tagged reflects what kind a person you are. I have very few and to be frank countable friends active in this blogosphere and I wasn’t tagged till date. So, i decided to have a go at it. The below would be answers if I were tagged.

50 PAISE FIGHT

” Customer satisfaction is our motto” is the one liner we come across in most of the retail stores. India has witnessed this retail boom very recently with a great number of retail chains spreading from the big cities to small ones, the big ones becoming more bigger becoming a one stop shop for all. Such was Vah magna , a subsidiary of Magna food division .

The above supermarket is the one I referred to in the previous paragraph and It looks big in terms of everything. And naturally most of the  middle class families flocked to the supermarket to have a sneak peek.Given that the locality in which we reside ( the same one where this supermarket cropped up ) was mainly a middle class society which was slowly getting into upper middle class. But what I noticed that  people arent their usual demeanor at these big places, I mean they try to show off. They try to yell at the salesmen , demand early billing from the billing counter and pester the manager for trivial things which seem totally abnormal. In some shopping malls, where the High society people show their attitude sort of thing to get noticed, which I think is observed by these growing middle class very well. When I happened to just peek into the supermarket I described above, there was a middle aged lady who seemed to look educated who was in the same billing line as I were.She happened to buy some fruits and vegetables
and the total bill amounted to Rs. xxx. 65 paise. She started talking to the billing person in a soft tone that she has to get another 35 paise change, but the billing person said that it was not possible as there was no such denomination. Then the lady started yelling at the manager and the person who billed her groceries that they were cheating people of 50 paise. And mind you she was so eloquent in her speech.

Is this the kind of behaviour expected from an educated person. In another instance,in a hospital where I was in the queue to pay the bill, a lady in her mid 40’s has come after me and yet she went ahead of me to pay the bill. Before I arrived at the scene there was an old man who was in his 70’s who has got to pay the bill, he requested us in the queue to allow him to pay he bill as he was not able to stand for a long time. Then this lady started to teach the old person manners and etiquettes saying that first come should be served first , another person smartly dressed joined the lady in instructing the old man, sort of warning the old man to stand in the queue came from nowhere and joined the queue and completed his formalities ahead of others. These kind of people never follow what they preach, and they don’t even have regard for elders. So such is the attitude of educated people in India .

INDIAN PREMIER LEAGUE

Now that the Indian Premier League has come to an end , Viewers like me who have got addicted to it have found no means to engage ourselves in the nights. Surprisingly, I;m in the same hangover as Im switching on the TV at 8Pm and automatically browsing the channels for cricket updates. The film Industry in India which is said to be one of the biggest money making and entertaining means, has seen a down side in the season where everyone usually flock to the theatres to watch the movies in the summer vacation. And you know what, the idea of IPL is soon going to make a place in the curriculum of management education.Most people say Lalit Modi deserves all the credit. And the winner Rajasthan Royals story has been nothing short of a fairy tale. Labeled as underdogs by cricket pundits and criticized for spending very less ( the least) in buying players, has come out victorious. Most other teams looked very good on paper but when it came to execution, Royals were spot on. Their captain Shane Warne deserved most of the credit as he brought out raw talent like swapnil asnodkar, yusuf pathan and handled his team very efficiently to reach the pinnacle.

Nice to see a team with no glamour quotient performing so well.
Other teams lost out both on and off the field with their share of controversies.

My only regret was that I could not make it to a single match..but thank god, I was able to see the practise session of deccan chargers with the likes of gilly and to name the others..

IPL is here to stay and Iam eagerly waiting for its second season…
