In Blog, Photography, Pictures, Video on January 1, 2012 at 6:51 pm

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Click here to see the complete report. Last year it was something like this Year 2010 in review

You’ve got Mail

In Movie review, Photography, Pictures, scribblings on February 5, 2011 at 7:45 pm

Very powerful words !

As I said in my last post, I’m enchanted with this movie. Here I’m gonna write few lines which I liked most in this movie… Some lines which you would generally miss in the flow of the movie.

[The picturisation when they come out of their respective houses, in the beginning of the movie, where they cross each other every time without having known each other, they go to same place but don’t recognize each other is simply superb.]

It is not Personal, Strictly business.

F…O…X…. Can you spell cat? …F…O…X….

Just call me Joe….

What were you doing…. Twirling…

What’s with Men and Godfather?

Godfather is answer to all your Questions. Supposw you have to go somewhere and you ask what should i pack? … leave the canary …take the gun… What day of week it is?…. San day…Man day….

So dearie what have you decided to do? CLOSE… I’m going to Close… Close…Closing the Store is the bravest thing to do…

You’re daring to Imagine that you could have a different life…. You feel like a big fat failure now, but you’re NOT. You are marching into the unknown armed with … Nothing.

if you need more ask me… I’m very rich… I bought Intel at 6.

Is there someone else? No … no but there is a dream of someone else.

The song in background – remember… remember…Life is never as it seems….. Dreeeeeeeeeeeaaammmmmm….. far away…life was clear… close your eyes…

Funny!!

“Everyone should jump in air.

what???

We jump, the elevator thinks no one is here, and it opens.

One.. two… Three.. Jump…”

People are always telling you that Change is good thing but all they are really saying is that something you didn’t want to happen at all, has Happened.

“How can you forgive this guy for standing you up….. and not forgive me for this tiny little thing… putting you out of business….Oh How I wish you would….

Finally…

I’ll say Goodbye to all my sorrow and by tomorrow I’ll be on my way. I guess the lord must be in New York city

What gives HOPE?-An honest feedback

In Blog, Photography, Tips n Tricks, Writing on January 18, 2011 at 3:42 am

Reference: The Daily Post #18

It was around 22:55 IST (date17th Jan) , when Scott posted this topic. Now it’s 02:15 AM IST  (date 18th Jan). For those three hours I could not figure out what should I write.  I sat to analyze my last post ( My MBA lessons had to be used for a while 😉 ) What went wrong with that, Why People were particularly interested/ disinterested in this particular post. What did I learn from it?” It was then the thought of writing this post just crossed me. So here it’s What gives me hope?

The Post in analysis

What was New ?

This post Does everything happen for a reason? was New by all my standards. An experiment in itself.

1. This was my first Visual Blogging around an idea. Thousand words can be summed up in a single picture.

2. For the first time, I used ‘Poll’ to know my guest’s  (I prefer to call my readers Guest) views on the post. I have observed, guests prefer to write goodie-goodie stuffs in your comments, but given the limited choice in Polls, you can get a good feedback. Thanks to all my Guests, I received an honest feedback from them.

3. Comments form an integral part of your posts. I have never been able to capture attention of my guests (which mostly says stays for 4 seconds) as good as in the last post. Most of them were enlightening, as if completing the post in all dimensions, I left untouched. I believe it was good. We were engaged enough to start a discussion.

Though the stats were discouraging, what gave me HOPE, were the things I learned in the process.
What is the learning?

1. Pictures speak thousand words, but it creates a vague idea in reader’s mind. Substantiate Pictures with Texts.

2. Poll choices has to be “To the Point”, to get a fairer idea.

3. Open ended posts fetch more comments. It interests and compels the readers to put forward their points in the discussion.

4. Posts should be crisp, not taking much of time and putting forward the Idea, it wants to convey.

I must follow the last of my lessons. Let’s close here. Before that, I have few questions for you, My dear guests.

Why do you think it has the least possibility of bring Pressed?


Does everything happen for a reason?

The question for the day is ” Does everything happen for a reason?” You answer the question after having gone through the post. I have put a poll in the end for you.

FOCUS is the word of the day lolz 😛

Today’s challenge and hfff I’m not able to concentrate on what to write. I started writing at 00:00 hours and since then I have already changed my  topic 4 times. This is my 5th topic. I wanted to sleep but again, the stats at WordPress home  are staring at me as if I’ve committed some crime. So here I go,

Started with a beautiful poem by Dr, Harivansh Rai

Amitabh Bachchan

Bachhan, legendary writer and father of Legendary Cine Actor, Amitabh Bachhan. “Madhushala” (meaning bar) has been my long time favorite. This epic poem is worth listening in the voice of Manna Dey . Check out lyrics of “Madhushala”.

 

Switched to Photo, could not get any worth-posting photo, any way found one, here it’s

Early morning in Goa

Early morning in Goa

Finally the song which kept me awake till 3:00 hours.

No I’m not gonna die… 🙂 I’m just fine, can bear the pain (I had pain in an eye… seems to be easing)
