Is Ritchie street a cheaper destination

Yes, but it is only for those people who can roam much than Hutch dog! Or you must be a regular visiting costumer (like a system assembler / service engineer). As it is believed widely that Ritchie street is the cheapest destination, so most people goes in without knowing market price and with zero bargain knowledge. BARGAIN! in Ritchie street how can I my friend it is going to be cheap anyway! nah you'r wrong.

If you go in without any knowledge you'll get punished to pay more! they'll quote it as high standard product,  rare product! with high warranty and all sort of things to make you believe you are not paying less. As you know in every place there is someone loyal to everyone search for that kind of person know the exact rate move to next store bargain as if you know the person how manufactured it, see the magic happen!

I would like to share a similar experience. I went to buy D-USB cable, many didn't have it only one store had it and quoted price  Rs.140 for Original, Rs.50 for Local make. I tried to bar gain after some 5 min he said I give you local make but no guarantee that it would work. I asked why you have it when its not going to work and left. I found 2 streets emerging from Ritchie street as I walked in I chose one in left and walked past a house in fact is a shop! Stopped there watched for D-USB cable wasn't there. But that guy directed me to a service store where I got a slight old second hand thing for `20

When HOLLYWOOD is video GAME!

I find films released these days reminding me of old video games that I played, some of them are abandoned now. For instance I take two movies EXPENDABLES and A-TEAM, it’s not just the screenplay or heroic things they do or stuffs they carry its all of them matching with games. I’ll analyze both the movies separately in following paragraphs.

EXPENDABLES, Story line: A Group of 6 American guy with guns kills tons of soldiers of some weak country because they are going to save a girl whom is a native of that country fighting against growing illegal drug plant in her country by another wealthy American! as per standard book of “Hollywood reasons”  head of Expendables group likes the native girl, so they are to save her.
The climax alone is enough to state that this must be a movie on super natural powered guys like X-Men not guys with superlative intelligence and physic. This movie reminds me every much of Contra, Quake, House of Death, ____ Dragon which asks you to shoot/fight against weak gangs first and at end fight hard and tough against final enemy to find a girl kidnapped or bombs to be dismantled. Just like game hero guys kill tons of native soldiers, with no bullets of native soldiers hitting them (Super contra, Quake provides shield and extra life on putting cheats when just game starts). At last Villain takes the girl and then hero gets her back! Then they lived happily forever!!

A-TEAM, Story line:  4 American soldiers’ forms a team unknowingly on the go, their execution style and intelligence make them live legends. Often they’ll get caught and escapes out with top hands help, actually movie runs around American dollar plates/dyes that are stolen by terrorist and wanted by CIA agent. Unlike Expendables this movie runs with nice logic.
Only the screenplay makes me think it as a game, when a plan is dictated by the lead to his mates it is already half executed! Price of Persia, Hitman: Silent Assassination are some games that I can compare with this movie, both the game dictates the current/future level in a video format. If there is some other thing that I can compare with it is going to the availability of map, thrust guns that they get on the way which they need not carry. Know the rule of game every level brings you new weapon to use and bring new area (map) to attack and conquer which is available on Pause menu.

Both these films resemble very much like Counter strike!
Moral: DO NOT MISS A-TEAM, please SKIP EXPENDABLES even if you get free DVDs.

This year Tim Southee is the last man picked by CSK for IPL'11 in replacement for injured Doug Bollinger, who was picked last for IPL'10 in similar situation and it worked like magic. Southee showed his master class in the last over of CSK versus KKR match here on Friday, recovering from injury Bollinger is set to return soon to continue his magic.

With CSK having five Indian Batsmen namely Captain MS Dhoni, M Vijay,S Anirudh, S Badrinath,SK Raina playing well and with good fielding skill allows Captain MSD to spin in different foreign players. Also Chennai Super Kings is blessed with our own world class spinner R Ashwin with pace begin only doubt with India CSK players and these two foreigners playing fit and hard, CSK is complete and all set to lift the cup.

Moral: There will be only one job left for the tans; Team Selectors/Staff to do "is to whistle" WHISTLE PODU!! CHEERS!

HAZARE Wins! AVAAZ on song!

Update on April 8 2011
Great news -- the government has agreed to draft the Jan Lokpal bill with full participation of civil society, and Anna Hazare has agreed to suspend his fast! It's a huge victory -- but the key now is to keep building the pressure to ensure that a strong bill is drafted and then passed into law. Sign the petition now and spread the word!

Campaign launched on April 7 2011
Right now, Anna Hazare, a 73-year-old Gandhian, sits fasting in the burning sun, and he will stay until death -- unless the government agrees to consider a powerful law that could rid Indian politics of the scourge of corruption. 

This "Modern Mahatma" is taking the utmost act of courage and determination to push through a bill that would give an independent body the power to punish corruption -- even in the Prime Minister's office. Across the country a movement has exploded, driving a media storm of pressure that's engulfing Singh. But dirty politicians are desperately trying to water down or kill the law.

For the first time in forty three years, we have the chance to change the way politics is done. Let's join together and stand with Anna Hazare to tackle corruption and clean up Indian politics. We have no time to lose -- sign the petition to be delivered directly to Prime Minister Singh and reported to the media, and spread the word to everyone:

Click here to sign the petition!

Hazare is championing a citizen-developed bill called "Jan" Lokpal that will create an independent body, selected by judges, citizens and constitutional authorities, with enough power to investigate and punish all politicians. No minister or bureaucrat will be able to influence its investigations.

Since 1968, when this bill was first introduced, greedy politicians have thwarted its passing. Now the government is pushing for a watered down Lokpal with no hope of ending fraud, vice and dishonesty -- it gives politicians overriding power to decide who will be investigated, and is a complete sellout. 

Pressure is mounting on Prime Minister Singh to endorse the "Jan" Lokpal. Members of the opposition party have begun to make the right noises in support of Anna Hazare. And even the National Advisory Council, a powerful advisory body to Sonia Gandhi have come out in favour of the bill. But corrupt politicians and vested interests are doing all they can to kill it. 

Anna Hazare has set the example. But only a national citizens movement can ramp up the pressure to get Singh to endorse "Jan" Lokpal and save Hazare's life.

Click here to sign the petition!

Corruption in politics has become a plague across our country, it is draining our resources and demoralizing our nation. This bill would go a long way to deterring those that steal and undermine the public good. Last year, the Avaaz community in Brazil won an important victory -- against the odds millions of people came together and pushed through a historic anti-corruption law. India has a proud history of people power overcoming oppression -- today if we all stand with one voice we can fight this corruption that is poisoning our political system.

It is WE the winners

Simple reasons why India will be champions

  • WE are now playing as a team.

  • In 1983, Apr, 2, Saturday India won the WC. Its again Apr,2, Saturday.

  • Since there is   only one super senior player and 30% are new to big stages! there is no conflict of who is going to perform.

  • PEPSI! what Pepsi! yes!! they have found that Indians are going to win so they have not announced 1Rs Pepsi blue drink.

  • Perfect XI is ready, there is no confusion on selecting playing eleven.

  • Also Bowling has peaked in right time

  • Fielding of last 2 match was a good example of how to field! I felt against Australia, Indian fielding was higher that Australian standards.
