26th July 2005

Came across a preview of a realistic budget movie on IndiaGlitz - 26th July at Barista .


Brings back memories ... 26th July 2005. The day when it poured & poured on mumbai, but mumbai didn't stand still, The gutters were clogged but it opened its heart to everybody.

Complete strangers helped each other wade through the water. Formed chains & tied ropes to get people across. Stood in the gushing waters & informed if an open manhole was hidden. Traffic police became the only visible government. People gave food & shelter to strangers in their homes.

I myself was out of the 300 odd stranded employees of a firm, who didn't know if they will be able to get food for everybody. There were others, stuck in the lobby. Being in a low lying area, the building was surrounded by torrents of water on two sides & a nalla on the third.
Help came, The builder had arranged a party on the completion of the highest floor, it got canceled. With whatever ingredients he had, the caterer made delicious khichdi for everybody in the lobby. Ultimately, the hr department was somehow able to get food for all.
We slept on our work desks that night.

Why have we come to take this as an expected reaction from the city which never sleeps, has cut throat competition on the streets ,11th July,,, maximum city ?
This article by sudheendra kulkarni describes his journey through that night.
I hope this ability isn't taken for granted & stretched beyond its limit by those in the chair.

The author of lavishmungi.blogspot.com has written an excellent article. You have made your point and there is not much to argue about. It is like the following universal truth that you can not argue with: AS YOU CAN SEE BY THIS SITE, MORE PEOPLE ARE GOOD THAN BAD. TIME IS FEAR, FEAR IS EVIL. LIFE WITHOUT TIME IS AFTERLIFE. Thanks for the info.

I got a virus in my computer, the virus randomly poops up websties when im online, or when i click on a link fro example a link from somthing i googled it send me to this ramdom pages. My internet explorer also keeps on saying that there was an error so it keeps shutting down. I already scaned my compuer several times and all it catches is a tracking cookie, It never picks up any virus. Also one of the sities that popped up was about norton popping up sites and had people's comments of how annoying that was. It was a Norton site(wich pooped up too) I dont know if that is even relevant to this. Does anyone know what i can do about this, or how i could take the virus off? i dont wanna have to buy another antivirus?

I just discovered [url=http://bit.ly/bMGrYw]SatelliteTV[/url] on my PC! Ultra cheap at only $50 once off to get the software and an account on the Internet. I get more channels(in HD I might ad) than I get on cable so tomorrow I reckon I'm going to cancel my cable subscription. Thought I'd share this with you guys, worth to check out.

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.
