In Spain they call him Mr Formula 1. It is an appropriate name as Michael Schumacher has dominated the sport in a manner not seen since Juan Manuel Fangio.

: Michael Schumacher
Nick name: Schumi, The Kaiser, Mr F1, The Red Baron, Rain Master/Rain King
Born: 03-01-1969
Birth place: Huerth-Hermuehlheim, Germany
Nationality: German
Debut: Spa, Belgium

I am not an F1 geek!

But thats Schumi, who makes even the remotely interested people in F1, a die hard fan of F1!

I happened to read an article, in a daily about this legendary F1 maestro. It was not just like any other article that quoted stats and merely 'testified' his caliber, but was about the man whom we know very little about. The article clearly elucidated and proved beyond doubt, why schumi is the greatest of the great.

His professional career is for sure exemplary, but what makes schumi close to every one, is his 'Larger Than Life' gestures in personal life as well. He stands out as a role model to millions of his fans, with his 'clean personal life', something that one hardly gets to see in most of the so called celebraties.

Schumi's way to top wasn't a cake walk. For someone who came from a realtively poor family, schumi had an innate talent, driving on kart tracks (at the age of 4), which continued later on, on the F1 tracks as well. Schumi's 'Never Say Die' attitude is what has led him to scale great altitudes, which to many F1 aspirants is only a fantasy.

Schumi is also best acknowledged for developing very unique strategies in F1. Be it his fastest laps or his grip to drive with the same exuberance on even rain drenched tracks or his most popular 'pitstop' strategy (with Ras brown, strategist) tie-ups, schumi has always stood out of the herd to elvolve out victorious in even the most remotely favourable conditions.

Its surely a mockery of this great talent, that luck seemed to be so hard on schumi. He lost out in his last 2 Grand prix championships, largely because of technical flaws.

After the Brazilian Grand Prix, Schumi quoted, "Today my racing career comes to an end,". "Obviously, it is a special moment for me, and I am proud to have lived my career with some fantastic people, namely everyone who is part of the Ferrari family."

Schumacher, 37, retires after a prolific 16 years in Formula One with most of the driver records, including 91 victories and 68 pole positions.

A few from the media fraternity were probably harsh on Schumi, who wote articles about him titled "Farewell Schumi, to the Flawed Genius", (utterly insane and a derogatory remark!) .

Kudos Schumi! The whole world misses your brilliance and so do the F1 tracks. Its hard to imagine F1 without Schumi.

PS: No matter if Alonso managed to pull off a brilliant victory @ The Brazilian Grand Prix on 22nd Oct 2006. But the same race unarguably gave the whole world a sure testimonial of schumi's caliber! I am sure his performance till date clearly seperates the Great from the Good!

Deepavali, a few memories....

Deepavali is back again, in its fullest and truest colours. It has knocked @ the doors of my life with something new, each time it has been around. As it truly signifies, it symbolizes the victory of good over evil. It also signifies the beginning of a journey from darkness towards light. I am all the more thrilled this time to celebrate deepavali, in full swing.

Today as I sit back to jot this one down, my mind subtly tries to read those very 'old files' saved in my 'HDD' (God's ultimate gadget, the Human Brain!). My mind is deluged with a zillion memories of my childhood days and how I used to celebrate deepavali. I simply miss them.

During my school days, deepavali for me used to be nothing more than a golden opportunity to burn crackers and of course buy some new dresses, thus enrich my wardrobe. There wasn't a better opportunity for me flaunt the new clothes in front of my friends, than deepavali. I still remember how I used to quarrel with my brother over the issue of sharing crackers. I always @ the vantage point, since the 'Younger Brother' factor always favored me. My brother @ the other end, used to subtly grumble why I was given more 'priority'. I feel it was simply to make me feel secured, when my big bro was around (he used to bully me a lot). I suppose we were too small to understand those issues then.

Deepavali also reminds me of those very typical incidents associated with its celebrations. The day used to begin typically with an oil bath, something which I hate taking one even to this day! I used to create a scene @ my house. I was succhaa stubborn little package then! It was always my father, who would console me and somehow convince me to have one, in return for some baits (usually more crackers!). Most of the time, I would be forced to play ‘Treasure Hunt' thing, to discover where the crackers were hidden. I just used to love it. I have fresh memories of it being played effortlessly by me, even for weeks. When I used to discover them, it used to bring in me, a sheer sense of jubilation. I was never a good sport @ burning big crackers, like rockets or a seven shooter or even a hundred wala. So my bro enjoyed the opportunity to burn the bigger ones and I simply loved the way they produced the flamboyant colours when they exploded in the sky!

Times have changed and so have I. The concept of burning crackers late night, no more entices me. I feel I am better off with these 'chemical stuff'. I have off late (since my pre-university days), resorted to 'eco-friendly' methods of celebrating deepavali. I 'burn crackers' on my AMD powered PC. I see them burst out in to colours, not in the star studded sky, but on my 15" LG monitor. The whole world seems to have been squeezed in to a 15" Gizmo. Deepavali, no longer allows me play those 'treasure hunts', nor am I such a stubborn small package anymore! I don't get to quarrel with my brother over such trivial things with such a blissful innocence any more.

I guess being 'grown-up' has got its own short comings. I miss my childhood days, where I used to quarrel with my brother over trivial issues like cracker or flaunt my new clothes in front of my friends. Today I hardly get to enjoy the 'music' of the loud crackers. I seem to have lost even the remote innocence, one has in his childhood. The same innocence which allows you to celebrate festivals for the mere sake of enjoyment, not knowing what it really signifies. Those were the days when I didn't know what Deepavali meant, but I used to enjoy! But today when I know what Deepavali means, I am pathetically searching for reasons to enjoy it. What an irony?

Life seems so incomplete without festivity and what bigger can it get than deepavali? While I key these thoughts down, my mind seems to log this query to the god almighty! "Oh god, give me back my childhood days. Coz they are simply priceless".

I will definitely find reasons to celebrate deepavali in grand style. I wouldn't allow life's materialism take a toll of my happiness.

On this occasion, I would like to wish all friends a very happy and a prosperous deepavali. Hope the year ahead brings happiness and prosperity in your lives!

PS: As I complete to jot this one down, I have a confirmation from my father. I am finally going mobile! Hurray! At least that should keep me rocking for a while, during this deepavali.

Words Fail Me!

What Everyone Who Writes Should Know about Writing

Well I have been haunted with this idea for quite some time now. I came across this book in I happen to read it's editorial reviews, felt as though that I have discovered a real gud one!

Here are a few reviews of the book:

  • Patricia T. O'Conner's Words Fail Me is written in the same lighthearted tone as her snappy grammar guide, Woe Is I. This time out, O'Conner tackles the writer's art. "Good writing," she says, "is writing that works." This book is the perfect text for the novice writer who tends to gravitate toward comedic instructors. "Crummy spelling," says O'Conner, "is more noticeable than crummy anything else." Organizing your material "may be a pain in the butt, but it's thankless, too!" "Write as though you were addressing someone whose opinion you value, even if the reader is ... a stingy insurance company that won't pay for your tummy tuck." O'Conner's material isn't new--like many such books, Words Fail Me advocates the use of small words, fresh verbs, and only well-chosen modifiers--but rarely is a primer so amusing. And the clever titles strewn throughout--"Taking Leave of Your Tenses," "The It Parade"--provide added pleasure, particularly for anyone who knows how hard it can be to put a headline on a piece of writing. --Jane Steinberg

  • Patricia O'Conner's Words Fail Me presents so many practical insights into effective writing that I suspect it would be valuable to almost any writer. And there's a bonus: she has a great sense of humor. She debunks the faux pas fallacies that snobbishly tell us how not to write -- don't use contractions, don't start sentences with conjunctions, etc. And she tells us how these supposed `rules' came to be. Wisely, O'Conner's most important rule is this:
  • <>
    "Your first duty to the reader is to make sense. Everything else -- eloquence, beautiful images, catchy phrases, melodic and rhythmic language -- comes later, if at all. I'm all for artistry, but it's better to write something homely and clear than something lovely and unintelligible."
    I read quite a lot, mostly nonfiction (philosophy, reference, science, theology, and wilderness travel). Inevitably, reading compels me to write -- I've submitted more than fifty book reviews to this forum. Yet I'm never quite happy with my writing. This is not unusual. "Your favorite novel or history or memoir is just someone's last revision," says O'Conner.
    As a student I disliked studying the nuts and bolts of English. Words, their accuracy, economy, and artistry, interest me far more now, and this book is the first "how to write" text I have read. At the risk of belaboring the obvious (because good writing doesn't): it was a good choice.
    Highly recommended. - Wesley L Janssen
PS: I would, for sure try to get a copy for myself.

Friends proposed and ...

Hadn't had the oppurtunity to blog for a few days (Well not too much really, only 4 days!). A lot of things have happened outta here @ my college.

To begin with, the computer science forum, in collaboration with Red cross (Youth wing) had organized a blood donation camp, on 14th Oct, 2006. It was a huge success. A total of 138 volunteers, donated their blood. Unfortunately, I couldn't get to volunteer it, as a donor.

We also had the slections for various events, the winners of which would be represting the college team,@ 8th VTU Uth Fest, to be held @ Nitte college of engineering, Mangalore. The Fest wud start from 8th, Nov, 2006. I also had participated in 2 events, Debate & Quiz . Well I am not worried about debate, what really is 'bothering' me is, if in case I make it through in quiz, (I must confess that I am not so gud @ it) I would have to do something what Munna does in Lage Raho... (Visit library and start read quiz books!). Boy! the 'worst thing' about Quiz was, there were many questions about movies and music, (English, I am okies with it :D) and I have managed to answer them well.

Did I say quiz? Well wait, I got one more thing to share with you. Today there was a quiz event organized by ISTE. I attended the quiz prelims along side 149 other teams. I was teamed with my friend 'Sa*****.M' (I need to be very spec here...). Well, we never really thought that we would make it to the nxt round, along with 19 other teams! (I dunno why were so confident about, rather why Sa*****.M was?). The results were out by 4:15 P.M. and guess what? We had qualified and Sa*****.M was missing from the campus! To make things worse I was not supposed to change my partners. Phew!

Well, V came up with this jack pot idea, as he often does. We manged to call our friend Su*****.M. The fact the we got more than one S******. M, here in my class, really helped me a lot. Well, the next thing we did was to somehow convince the organizers that he is the actual 'Sa*****. M'. (They had not seen the real S). We finally finished with the 2nd round, 'fortunately' this time there was no way, we would qualify! Thank god u saved me!

Well before u plan to charge me of playing 'cheap tricks' I employed to attend the 2nd round of the quiz, lemme tell you, after looking @ the paper, We were supremely confident that we wouldn't make it to the next round! So guys, fortunately, I haven't caused any potential trouble to anyone!

PS: Enough of this frivolous stuff! I am currently in search of a project (a substantial one) for my final year. My search (Google) is on. Hope I would find some good project!

My 1000th

My blog stats have finally crossed the 1000 mark. Hurray! Something that will propel me to deliver a bit more verbally in days to come. It has been exactly 3 months since I have entered in to the blogosphere, and I am enjoying every bit of my stay here. It has been a real awesome learning experience for me. Like any mortal blogger, feedbacks and suggestions are the best source of motivation and of course the best 'food' to survive in the blogosphere! So keep sending them to me.

I would like to extend my sincere thanks to few of my friends, who have helped me, and constantly inspired me to blog! Karthik, Vijay, Harish, Srikanth, Santosh and many others.

I also am pretty grateful to all ISB bloggers, who are so refreshing and inspiring in their content. I just love to read their blogs. Kudos folks! U people really rock! In particular, I would like to thank pratima, chiranth, anu, mama. They are simply the best!

My blogging journey, as a reader began in and around the month of July, when I finished with my 6th SEM exams. I accidentally happen to visit this blog. I was really inspired by the author's style and content. Hence I decided to start a blog of my own.

As evident, I might seem to all as a fickle minded guy, especially when it comes to presenting the blog content. But, look @ it the other way, U will discover me, as someone who always craves for something new!

My blog has undergone the following changes (Its true to the best of my memory!):

  • I have changed my blog template at least 3-4 times. I dunno how long will I stick on to this one.
  • I have added (and deleted) quite a few links regularly. I always do this '+ - ' thing with my blog a lot.
  • I have off late added these useful daily updates which have helped me enrich my vocabulary. I need to work on that!
  • I have been subscribing to different 'free counters'. I suppose this is my nth free counter, ever since I started this blog. I am a real freak!
  • I have finally got a separate ISB blog roll. I simply love to read them.
  • I have changed my pic on the profile page of my blog, atleast 3-4 times! This apparently is my 4th pic I guess.
PS: Last but not the least, I would like to thank all my readers, for sending me some of their valuable suggestions and timely feedbacks. They have for sure helped me, and will continue to help me evolve as a more seasoned blogger.

The 2006 winner, The Inheritance of Loss by Kiran Desai

Youngest ever woman wins Man Booker Prize at age of 35

Kiran Desai was tonight (Tuesday 10th October) named the winner of the £50,000 Man Booker Prize for Fiction for The Inheritance of Loss, published by Hamish Hamilton.

The Indian-born writer has a strong family tie with the prize as her mother Anita Desai has been shortlisted three times since 1980 but has never won. This year, however, her daughter, Kiran, has won the acclaimed literary prize.

Author of the 1998 universally praised Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard, Desai is the first woman to win the Man Booker since 2000 when Margaret Atwood scooped the prize with The Blind Assassin. Her winning book, The Inheritance of Loss, is a radiant, funny and moving family saga and has been described by reviewers as ‘the best, sweetest, most delightful novel’.

This is the first time that Hamish Hamilton has published a Man Booker Prize winner although they had two shortlisted authors in 2005.

Chair of the judges, Hermione Lee, made the announcement at the awards dinner at the Guildhall, London, which was broadcast live on the BBC 10 O’ Clock News. Harvey McGrath, Chairman of Man Group plc, presented Kiran Desai with a cheque for £50,000.

Hermione Lee comments,

“We are delighted to announce that the winner of the Man Booker Prize for 2006 is Kiran Desai’s The Inheritance of Loss, a magnificent novel of humane breadth and wisdom, comic tenderness and powerful political acuteness. The winner was chosen, after a long, passionate and generous debate, from a shortlist of five other strong and original voices.”

Over and above her prize of £50,000, Kiran Desai is guaranteed a huge increase in sales and recognition worldwide. Each of the six shortlisted authors, including the winner, receives £2,500 and a designer-bound edition of their book.

The judging panel for the 2006 Man Booker Prize for Fiction is: Hermione Lee (Chair), biographer, academic and reviewer; Simon Armitage, poet and novelist; Candia McWilliam, award-winning novelist; critic Anthony Quinn; and actor Fiona Shaw.

The Winner

The Inheritance of Loss by Kiran Desai
Hamish Hamilton, £16.99

‘Kiran Desai is a terrific writer. This book richly fulfils the promise of her first.’ - Salman Rushdie

In the north-eastern Himalayas, at the foot of Mount Kanchenjunga, in an isolated and crumbling house, there lives an embittered old judge, who wants nothing more than to retire in peace. But with the arrival of his orphaned granddaughter, Sai, and the son of his chatty cook trying to stay a step ahead of US immigration services, this is far from easy.

When a Nepalese insurgency threatens the blossoming romance between Sai and her handsome tutor, they, too, are forced to consider their colliding interests. The judge must revisit his past, his own journey and his role in this grasping world of conflicting desires - every moment holding out the possibility for hope or betrayal.

Kiran Desai was born in India in 1971, and was educated in India, in England, and the United States. Kiran studied creative writing at Columbia University. She is the author of the critically acclaimed Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard and The Inheritance of Loss.

Me, myself and my sick monitor!

The last three days have been quite eventful. A lot seems to have happened outta here.

My monitor has been bugging me a lot. There seems to be some problem with it. I better fix it, before it gets too late. It simply doesn't 'listen' to me, unless it takes a bit of a hammering from my side. Red alert!

I also watched the movie Davinci Code. I hadn't had the oppurtunity to read the book, so wasn't biased or pre-conceived. I enjoyed the performance of Tom Hanks (The Oscar boy!). Must confess that the movie for sure will get u watching it over and over again. (Probably because of ir's uncanny storyline, if u happen to watch it without reading the book, DC).

As I had mentioned in my previous post, regarding dedicating a new blog for bringing the insanities of orkut to limelight, we have opened this blog: orkut insanity. It's a team blog, run by 3 of us ZOD, Bee and myself. Hope we will bring everything under the sun, about orkut to limelight. Feel free to contribute to it.

We had been expecting our 6th SEM results, pretty anxiously. Finally the mystery unfolded on Friday afternoon. I must confess that luck seems to have for sure leaned towards me. (Sorry Harry, I have picked ur orkut status lines!). Luckily, I managed to pull off a decent score.

After that blog entry on 'Deciphering orkut scraps', my friends, who have read that article on my blog, seem to have become very conscious of their entries in to my scrap book. I have not received any such 'Decipherable scraps' off late. Folks, the article was written for the sole purpose of providing some phun and nuthing else! So feel free to stick to your normal orkuttian literature.

PS: I happened to visit this site called Resolve Query. I recommend all of you, to go out there as well and pay a visit. Quite a resourceful site indeed. Thnx to the site owner and it's contributors.

Deciphering orkut scraps...

Disclaimer: The author owns the copy rights of this blog entry and it shall not be reproduced in any form whatsoever. Any resemblance, to any kind of orkuttian literarature in this blog entry, is purely co-incidental. The author, shall bear no responsibilty, whatsoever, for any kind of direct or indirect refrences to any orkut user (Online or Offline).

Off late orkutting seems to have smitten me for sure. I have been orkutting quite stupendously. So this naturally has helped me gain a bit of proficiency in orkuttian literature ! After a week long 'deep analysis' of various orkuttian profiles and known scrap book entries (nope, I haven't indulged in to any sort of fugitive work!). I proudly present before you my 'Winter Thesis' work on a very novel and emerging research area called 'Deciphering Orkut Scraps' (probably this might very well fetch you a nobel prize or something equivalent). I must confess that even though orkut scrap literature is pathetically stereotyped, at times one also finds a few really gud and off beat ones as well. I have off late been exposed (rather victimized) by suchhaa pain in the neck sort of orkuttian scraps! I have quoted below a few typical scraps from the orkut literature and their latent meanings. It's a small effort from my side to decipher the so called 'cryptographic orkut scraps'. Here we go...

1. Howz life out there? (or what's up @ ur end? or how r u doing?)

>> The most toughtest of all the questions. You are trapped! U open up a new conversation if u answer it or will get mercilessly bugged up, if u remain quite, with a zillion interrogative questions about why u didn't reply.

2. Nice to c u in orkut!

>> I am really amazed when ppl say this. what do people mean by this? Does it in any way, remotely mean, that I look nice only on orkut eh? (Like people check that column in their orkut profile regarding pets: Like them in zoos!)

3. R u online? (When u receive an instant scrap as reply from ur friend?)

>> The most dumbest of the questions one could send on orkut! I'm offline would u believe it? U know what, orkut allows users to send scraps being offline these days! (I have been tempted to say this on several occasions, but somehow out of modesty I have refrained from doing anything like that).

4. Keep in touch.

>> Well it has a plethora of subtle meanings. One of whose many meanings is as follows, I don't have anything much to scrap now! The ball is in your court, pass it back to me if your interested or let it die bouncing (in an exponentially decaying fashion) in ur court.

5. It's been pretty long since I scrapped u.

>> Well before you get too excited to answer this one, plz take some time off, to see his/her scrapbook. 9/10 times, this is used as a powerful tool to find a new source of scraps! It often ridicules me why people suddenly remember u when their scrap book entries dry up! Just chk on them.

6. C da this is ur first scrap! I am the first to scrap u!

>> Is it? Wow! I wouldn't have known about it, if not for ur timely acknowledgement, thnx. I mean, this crossess all limits of insanity! C'mon plz don't expect your friend to be so dumb!

7. Wow tum bhi orkut main? (I saw it in X's scrap book)

>> What does that mean ha? I know orkutting is legal, but c'mmon u can't humiliate me like that! I am not an outlaw!

8. Looking gud eh? whats cooking up dude?

>> Well thnx or wait.. what's me looking gud, has got to do with me cooking up something ha? @#$%%%? I dunno why ppl try to smoke out everyone's personal affairs unnecessarily in the public.

9. kya beta hai yaar... orkut pe..... koi special reason?

>> Yeah, don't let this go public. It shud be between us. I am working on CIA's new mission to track down offending users in orkut, who are trying to introduce some malacious traffic! C'mon every one knows why people join orkut. (If u still have doubts about it's objectivity, visit orkut's home page)

10. Keep scrapping!

>> I wonder if it's a request or an order. But in any case, u need to shower atleast a few scraps in to his/her scrap book!

PS: Well, my search continues for more of such weird stuff on orkut! Will post them as and when I find anything new. My new mission is to get to all (weird) types of about me: sections in profiles!

Munna Bhai and Gandhigiri...

Finally, I managed to pull some time off my whooping sleepless schedule, to watch the movie 'Lage raho munna bhai' - Munnabhai meets Mahatma Gandhi. After watching the movie, I felt as though I never could have found a better way to know Mahatma and his philosophies. Lage raho... illustrates it in such a lucid and a rolling-in-the-aisle humorous manner.

Murli Prasad Sharma alias Munna Bhai (Sanjay Dutt) this time around plays the role of a history professor, pretending to know everything about Mahatma Gandhi. He happens to meet Jhanvi (Vidya Balan) by winning a quiz contest on radio. He gets trapped when Jhanvi asks him to come over to her place, to deliver a lecture on mahatma and his ideologies. Now he gets compelled to read all about Mahatma. He spends days together literally in the library, to learn every bit about mahatma. That’s when he has his first tryst with the man himself, Mahatma. Only munna manages to see Mahatma (must say, a very novel concept in itself), while he is invisible to the rest of the world. Mahatma promises munna to take him on a road, which is difficult to travel but success @ the end of the journey is assured.

The rest of the movie demonstrates the concepts and ideologies of truth and nonviolence in the simplest possible terms (no hi-fi jargons) or to say, "In the akkha mumbai istyle". The movie literally proves the relevance of Gandhiism in today's world. We might boast of being in the 21st century, and might have framed out new ideologies for tackling problems. We may ridicule and talk cynically of the outdated ideology of gandhigiri. But folks, watching 'Lage raho....’ made me feel that, we probably need to re-work our philosophies. The movie has so many scenes where Gandhigiri clealry wins over so called Gundagiri. For e.g.:
  • Mahatma speaks via munna, to show how the world has failed pathetically to imbibe any of his principles. We might boast outrageously of having named our roads, built statues and even printed Mahatma’s photos on our currency, but have we ever tried to implement any of his ideologies? Our methodology, of trying to keep 'Mahatma alive' materialistically, has been nothing more than a mere folly.
  • Munna asks Circuit, (Arshad warsi) to pardon him for having him slapped. A message, asking sorry for a mistake committed by us is not a shame, but it requires some real guts. I mean how many of us dare to do it. For many it’s a question that hurts their ego, even if they are @ fault.
  • A protest by munna, Jhanvi and others to get back their 'II innings home" from Lucky Singh (Boman Irani). The scenes are so fabulously picturised in illustration of how the so called age old concept of 'satyagrahas' can really pay off (No, not the ones you often get to see these days, where violence rules over real objectivity of the protest).
  • Munna confesses in front of jhanvi, that he is not a history professor. A very simple message to prove that any relation built on the foundations of falsity is sure to die premature.
  • Finally, the ultimate victory of truth is spectacularly shown where munna convinces the groom (Abhishek Bachan makes a guest appearance as the groom) and his family that the bride Simran (Diya Mirza) is the ideal choice. She dares to come up with the truth in public. A re-emphasis on the importance of the underlying concept of essence of truth and trust in any relationship.
These were just a few scenes I have quoted above, but when the movie is looked @ in entirety, is a perfect blend of entertainment and a social message to enlighten the masses of India (& abroad) about the real ideologies of mahatma, in a simple, easy to comprehend manner. One just wonders and looks @ the whole movie in awe, "Were mahatma's ideologies all this simple? ", "Is Gandhigiri the ultimate solution for all the niggling problems that one faces in day today life?”. Hats off to it's director Rajkumar Hirani and the entire team of Lage raho munna bhai for coming up with such a wonderful movie.

I am sure that this movie for sure has awakened the youth, as more and more people from India and abroad are really loving this whole concept. Now the youth community seems to chant this new mantra, "Say no to Dadagiri, embrace Gandhigiri!".

PS: I happened to visit this website, where one could stage his/her views on Gandhigiri. What do you wait for? Just go out there and stage your opinions. Try Gandhigiri, may be it might help!
