A hundred words

A hundred words, nothing less, maybe more! Not for them, not for her, just for me. To amuse, to ponder to be with myself. Too self-involved, too self-centered, too ego-centric, a megalomaniac.
Do we think I care. I hope not!
Floyd shouted "Wake up, wake up, they have started. No one told you when to run. You missed the starting gun!". We run and run to catch the dream, the star. Aren't we running in circles. We run for gold but get weary. Too late to go back, to restart, to redo, to undo. Do we think I care!

poto blag caming soon!

It has always been my dream to develop a hobby of photography. Thanks to Rohan and Sathish who have agreed to get the cam from the US, the land of freedom and place-to-import-good-electronic-gadgets.
BTW my weeks of research has lead me to a few websites which review digicams and offer resonably good price for the camera.
Here are the links
a) Steve's Digicams - Balanced reviews, does not favour any particular brand.
b) Digital Photography Review - More detailed info on the cam.
c) Finally, the manufacturer's page: For me it was canon

PS:Canon seems to be the undisputed leader with close competetion from Nikon.

If you want your camera to look good get a Sony. If you want your pictures to look good get a Canon.

Bangalore, Bangalore!

I am sure. I am sure that the whole of the bangalore community cuss'd the weather last week. It was painfully cold in the mornings and nights. Scorchingly hot during the day.
Confession 1: I have been escaping the heat, just like all the thousands of software engineers who sit in front of a monitor all day.
I have lived here all my life. I vehemently defend Bangalore when anyone tries to takes shots at it, ( considering ALL the help I have got from Mr. Dharam Singh my defense has held up well).

Confession 2: Even I cuss'd Bangalore weather last week.

The beauty of Bangalore is what transpired over the weekend. At first, there was cool breeze and dry leaves, twigs were strewn all over the streets. The humidity in the air suddenly rose up. And it rained, it rained again on Sunday. Provided much relief to us all. That is why I love it. We get the showers whenever we want it.
