Every one knows that Satyam cinemas is the best in the Chennai city if not in the whole of India . Recently they have also opened a full fledged gaming zone across three floors in the same multiplex and I decided to see whats this all about. As I ventured into this building I has totally taken by surprise and awe on the variety of gaming devices and consoles that have been gathered under one single roof...mind boggling. You name it , they have it. Being a gaming enthusiast, I Could not resist myself from obtaining a membership card for myself. But these devices are really new to me and I decided to take on a racing simulator and it was a good experience racing in a track , feeling the jerks and bumps of a real race. But I found the Price little bit overpriced though.. The other Section I tried next was the Wii gaming. There were no slots initially and I had to wait for 30 mins until I got one. WoW ....this was really a good experience for an hour and I managed to stick on to

So near for so long.....

This is really an interesting bit of news that I had come across today. A colleague of mine, a peer in fact , with whom I did not have much interaction came to my cubicle to invite me for his marriage. I had heared about him and was aware that his marriage was due for long and now that it has materialized.... As usual I conveyed my wishes and asked about the girl. He just pointed a few rows in front of me and told the girl in green salwar was the bride. That was real surprise for me and asked if its an arranged marriage. He sweared it was an arranged marriage and it was by pure coincidence that they got the girls contact and it got materialised. They have been in the same hall for so long and yet took all this while for things to happen. Long live the couple.... Anyway I believed him and accepted his statement...did you ??

Congress Goverments austerity drive

Pranab travels in economy class, Sonia travels in economy class, Rahul traveled in train....these are some of the austerity measures and we are supposed to think that goverment wants to cut down expenses. The idea is good but it is not yet another way to get publicity. Do it in all areas including Govt functions, cut down the fleet of cars that accompany politicians, the mountain of shawls that they recieve which barely hangs for few seconds(do they recycle this ? Just a thought :) ) over their shoulders, the power they draw for meetings(which goes unaccounted). The list is endless........ Do this in silence and not for publicity....

Swine flu Scare

Swine flu..the latest in the headline these days....not sure how it all originated but it seems to create havoc and take lives of those infected in a matter of few days. Everybody is really scared and the worst part is, children are the most easy targets. Parents have to be really on their toes to keep their wards away from this. I also got few masks.but little hesitant to use it....Not sure when the medical world finds a cure for this deadly virus...hope it is sooner.

Cool Gadget

As I was going through the pages of Ebay , which I do more often these days I happen to see an MP4 player with lots of feature loaded and with a touch screen interface which mimics the iPod. Being a gadget freak( I think I can call myself that way) I thought a lot about it and was interested in buying it. It really had a host of features which included music player, Mp4 video player, Radio, camera, ebook reader, picture viewer, voice recorder/player, lot of small apps...hmmm was really attractive. Only think was, that it was not a branded one...ofcourse if its branded it would have been priced very heavily. I logged out with an indecisive mind...... Day 2... Again same idea...same website..this time tried to connect with the buyer to know more about it...He told only the positives as expected. Went to other sites to read the reviews. Compared the same with a Branded product. I received a huge was priced 6 times higher that my target price...Again logged off. Day 3... PRESSED

Job Satisfaction

The title above i.e Job satisfaction is a every important aspect in one's life. Job satisfaction can be on a higher side based on the closeness of your passion and the day to day job we do. It is no way related to the Earnings you get. You may get a heavy purse but if your mind does not get involved then Job satisfaction can be something you will never experience. Many of us do the day to day job just for the sake of doing it and not with Passion. I hope this statement in true for most of us. If you dispute this and really mean it , then my congratulations to you for getting a job in line with your Passion. There is also another side to this. but that really requires a great mind. It is developing passion in the job you are given. This is the most practical way to attain Job satisfaction. but as conveyed before, its a difficult to achieve and if you belong to this clan, again my kudos to you. I can hear you asking me where do I belong....? Like many of us, I am also in search of th

Airtel Super singer 2008

Airtel super singer 2008, now has become a part of our 9 PM Tv schedule these days. This year long event now has reached its Climax. But somehow the interest level is not the same. Most of you might agree that this has been dragged for more than two months. We are almost half way through 2009 and still viewing super singer 2008....I hear ed there is a junior singer 2009 also starting. Hope this at least will stop by 2009..?? No doubt that Airtel super singer has brought good talents to the foreground but there are too many recall rounds and the same set which had got eliminated again comes back and then gets eliminated again...I really don't understand that if the Idea is to extend the show , then whats the need for this elimination. I remember a poor contestant who lost patience and said that he is withdrawing because of shortage of attendance in college on account of attending this Super singer show.....this is sheer non sense from the organisers. Then came the finals a f
