Snake – Fear – Age – Don’t mix

Snakes have always been exciting part of my life they have occupied my dreams or played along or bite across. Its not like my previous encounters are less frightful or the last was most, anyway I had already got bitten in a birthday party at the age of 13 and didn’t even care to tell anyone till i had my share of cake

It was dull morning the previous night I left late from office and continued some left overs in home as pushed me to sleep real late I got up late. It’s my routine that I roam around my home while I brush its sort of ritual to me given that ours is a independent home someone have to ensure everything is at check. Switched on the computer to check mail I performed my ritual and OMG! I spotted a dead crow, poor life I never throw them into waste, if I spot them dead instead I bury them completing the earth cycle in my garden so it nourishes my plants. To my knowledge my garden gave rest for my 5 pet dogs, couple of squirrels and birds never for a crow though.
Then I saw t…

Forums and Logins

Forums and Q&A sites are IT guys main land, without them most would suffocate. These have always been the first step in analyzing, some do it literally! copy paste the error code even if it's by getting the business object exposed to outside world. An ordinary guy would copy the error message, google it, find multiple solutions in multiple sites and chooses what is easy to implement and if fixed done  its time to debug & fix the next error.

This cycle is so established that it won’t ever change  wait did I mentioned ‘cycle’ is it so? ask yourself have you been just extracting information or have actively participated? Most are designed in such a way that all the contents are accessible to anyone but edits are not possible and hence we don’t care even to register until a time comes where we have ask a new question that wasn’t asked ever.

Lets ask another question is signing up to any such Q&A site is advantageous? Yes! indeed yes given that you’d receive multiple mails …

Rain drop that travels up

With the monsoon being set, last weekend we had much of rain fall. That called up our cricket match in CPC tournament @ Porur and hence had time to spend the weekend with family. Sunday early morning started from Chennai to Pondy yiee!  c’mon guys in and around of Pondicherry has temples too not just liquor shops, since its a family outing….. we visited 4 temple. First to Panchavadi Hanuman temple, then to a Saneeswarar temple then to Prathyangara temple close to it. After a fair breakfast we went to Manakula vinayagar temple. Yes I heard you *enough* where does the rain drop travel upside? I’m gonna answers you, can’t you be patience & give this family man a chance to explain Pondy has good places to visit diving back… we had rain greeting us with mild showers and lovely drizzle it was nice pleasant drive. On the way we stopped I got down and relaxed found a nice white flower blooming from the shrub with its horn(old-days-speaker) like shape catching all the rain drops and holdi…

Where to Park when charges soars

Hi Chennai, I hope you completely understand the title. Last weekend went for a movie, at Escape, EA, Chennai. Its not the first time I visit EA and so I know where to park? but do you know?

Cool ah! parked bike in Spencer, which happens to be a shopping mall when I was schooling, now godown and office complex. Given the parking rate at EA I recommend every Chennaite to follow this parking method religiously till EA brings down fare also there is another building adjacent to Spencer offering paid parking service at reasonable rate. Also you can park at Sathyam cinemas complex, charge is lower than Spencer but riskier.



Similarly there is another place where you’d cry on seeing the parking receipt Phoenix Market City, Velacherry, Chennai thats the only place which made me wished that I had a car(no no parking rate are no lower but reasonable). This place is quite a non sense coz there is no such places around to park like we can for EA now I’ll list what I have tried before.  Safest: Pa…

Pizza corner: Tragedy

As a part of ‘Life after marriage’ ritual we went to movie this weeked ‘Raja Rani’ nice movie, lite & simple. Carrying on the good mood we decided to have dinner outside midway to home, later decided to go to any pizzeria to have some lite snack. Found Pizza corner in 100ft road, Velacherry, we jumped in and order coke, salad, pizza and asked them to serve in that order. Restaurant was close to empty and India innings was closing to defeat, I hung my head down, felt some heat... its my dear wife who is not happy that I’m giving cricket match enough importance to spoil the evening *OoO* girls will they ever learn? Ah! the salad came, its not becoz its healthy or green but recently I have developed a particular interest with salad so pardoned for bring it ahead of coke. I saw the salad *fail* there was no green nor corn neither cheese, olive as specified in the description of dish I double checked, the bowl was full of pasta just pasta which is hated most by her *second heat wave* …
