BM Day-7

Todays prompt is Music. So taking this opportunity to post a Jagjit Singh song and with Farooque Shaikh and Deepti Naval in the video it can’t get any better.

Although I like many different kinds of music – This is the my favorite. Hope you guys like listening to this song too 🙂

Here is another one of my all time favorites.

Blogging Marathon Day-6

The GateCrasher - Madeleine Wickham

The GateCrasher – Madeleine Wickham

Was wondering what to write for Blogathon Day 6 so I checked the prompt. It was “Books: Which was the last one you read? Did you like it?”

This one is easy I thought I last I read was “The Gatecrasher” by Sophie Kinsella,Madeleine Wickham. It was okay. Sophie Kinsella is the author of “Shopaholic” chick lit series from the “Confessions of a shopaholic” fame. I simply love her writing style. And all the books from the shopaholic series. But somehow I didn’t find her other books quite upto the mark. I have read The Gatecrasher & The Tennis Party are bad. The Undomestic Goddess, Can you keep a secret? are better.

Sophie is her pen-name and Madeleine is the real name. I guess she fares better when she writes as Sophie instead of Madeleine. Has anybody read her books? What do you think?

Numbers don’t lie

Blogathon Day – 4

A commonly used phrase in support of measuring and quantifying everything is “Numbers don’t lie”. Yeah true but what they forget is People do. Please lie and people manipulate. We can use numbers to tell the story we want to!

Case in point: this xkcd comic 😛

Numbers don't lie, People do

Numbers don’t lie, People do.

So stop believing all that numbers have to say. Once in a while, stop measuring everything and just enjoy life! Smell the roses!!! 🙂

Not Everything that can be counted counts and not everything that counts can be counted ~ Albert Einstein

Disclaimer: I am all for numbers, just that there can be more to the story!

Mom’s Love

Day -3 of Blogathon. Posting this video.

This is actually a set of photos which were taken as a Lioness tries to save her cub while putting her own life at stake.

This is how Moms are. Mom’s love is unconditional. She takes care of even the smallest wish of her child but how much do we understand their needs.

It is time now to do something for your mom too. Just pass on this link and help your Mom enjoy the joys of Internet. Here’s a beautiful ad on helping women get online.
