Accelerated Mobile Pages & Responsive Website Design

ADAPT GO MOBILE FRIENDLY OR DIE When it comes to website design, it is true: Design a website which is mobile friendly or let your website die. With the increase in the number of website surfers and product buyers through cell phone, the webmasters can no longer take the gadget users for granted. It is 2016 and as of today if your website is not mobile friendly then i am sorry to say but your website is ancient. With AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) the website visitor via a mobile device will no longer have to wait for those countless seconds to access the webpage. Why should you invest your time, effort and money on Responsive Web design & AMP?

My all time favorite movie quotes – Hollywood and Bollywood

Jack Reacher Jack Reacher: Look out the window. Tell me what you see. You see the same things that you see everyday. Well, imagine you’ve never seen it. Imagine you spent your whole life in other parts of the world, being told everyday that you’re defending freedom. Then you finally decide you’ve had enough. Time to see what you’ve given up your whole life for, everything. Get some of that “freedom” for yourself. Look at the people. You tell me which ones are free. Free from debt. Anxiety. Stress. Fear. Failure. Indignity. Betrayal. How many wish that they were born knowing what they know now? Ask yourself how many would do things the same way over again, and how many would live their lives like me. Devdas Babuji ne kaha gaon chhod do … sab ne kaha Paro ko chhod do … Paro ne kaha sharab chhod do … aaj tumne keh diya haweli chhod do … ek din aayega jab woh kahenge, duniya hi chhod do Taken “I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for ransom I can tell you I don’t have money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you, but if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you and I will kill you.” —Liam Neeson...

BOOM BOOM Ping Pong Tuk Tuk

The three most ever heard things in Thailand Boom Boom Ping Pong Tuk Tuk November 13, 2014 – The journey starts from Dadar as I head toward Mumbai International Airport to have a legendary trip to Bangkok and Pattaya with my cousin Monty Pinty who was going to reach the airport from Andheri. The cab took more than 45 at Mahim itself and I thought to myself I am definitely going to Miss this flight. Also I would have later been killed by Monty as his passport and tickets were with me; so if I miss the flight -> he misses the flight as well! Fortunately I reached on time and we had plenty of time at the airport. 1st -> Got our boarding passes and checked in the luggage which we did not want to carry with ourselves inside the plane. 2nd -> Got past the security check. 3rd -> Passport Control Verification: Done We were traveling by Thai airways which are one of the best airways in the world (if you love Asian women that is). Air hostess:  (4 / 5) Food:  (3.0 / 5) In-flight songs, movies and games database to entertain yourself: (4.0 / 5) (I mostly listened to Taylor swift songs :p and saw the Adam Sandler movie Blended on the return flight) On the flight we were given a small form to fill out which we later had to submit to the passport control area after landing. We landed and straight away went to the Passport Control Section as we had already gotten our visas for Thailand in Mumbai through CKGS. More about that later. Everything went...

Timmy’s Syndrome

So that you can understand Timmy’s Syndrome easily, I have listed all the information related to it using a FAQ. What is Timmy’s syndrome? It is a stuck up mental condition where in your mind you start selecting a person’s first letter of the last name and putting it in the first position of first name and replacing it with the first letter of the first name. Example if your name is David Beckham then a person with Timmy’s syndrome will in his mind read it as Bavid Deckham, Justin Bieber will be read and pronounced as Bustin Jieber Is it a serious condition? No; but once you get it, you will always be stuck with it. How did this originate? It is named after the author Jimmy Thakkar (Timmy Jhakkar according to the syndrome) hence the name Timmy’s syndrome. Can you give a few other examples? I can, but remember – Once you get it, you will always be stuck with it: Sumesh Kapadia=Kumesh Sapadia Shantanu Joglekar=Jhantanu Soglekar Priyanka Chopra=Criyanka Phopra Deepika Padukone=Peedika...

Balance in life

The only competition one has to have in his life is with keeping a proper balance of money compared to the needs one has; a man has gotto finish all cash and credit before he goes. I mean you do not want to spend up all your money and still know that you have about 30-40 more years to live; but at the same time you do not want to be dying with lakhs or crores of rupees (or millions of dollars) in your bank account knowing that you could have spent it on all the cool things you wanted to do or spend it on all the lovely people who meant so much to you. Find that...

My life flashing before my eyes.

They say life flashes before your eyes before your death. If life flashed before my eyes, I am sure I would see the windows’ and android’s circular wait icon for about 30 minutes before seeing other things from my life for a few milliseconds…

Age is just a number

Don’t count how much you have lived; count in negative, as in how many days you have left to live. Hence we are all equals!

Live 5 crore days plus

This is another way of wishing someone at the birthday party. Instead of saying tum jiyo hazaroun saal aur saal ke din ho pacchaas hazaar.

My Trip To Goa In April

My trip to Goa: I am going to write about my trip to Goa. You can understand a bit about travel and attractions and also how much it would cost you at certain places. Also feel free to view the pics that I have uploaded. STAY: LA Casa, Siolim (OYO ROOMS), North Goa I would rate this place 4/5. It is a calm and peaceful area to stay. They have a garden and pool area to relax. The pool is not as clean as one would have hoped. See pic below: I and my friend (my friend and I) hardly spent time at the hotel but overall it was a good experience. Thanks to a good deal I got through Goibibo when I booked the hotel along with the flight tickets. Good: GOOD AC in hot April, Good Breakfast (complimentary), Good Free Wifi, Nice force in the shower Bad: Location was a bit hard to find   BEACHES: Here are my rankings for the beaches in Goa Morjim Beach – Lot of foreigners and apparently a crocodile as well which was spotted on 16th July (article updated on 16th July 2015) Baga Beach – Full of life Ashvem Beach – Nice location Mandrem Beach – Peaceful, Lil empty though Miramar beach – Nice family place. Waited for the sunset but only to see the sun fog out just before setting Calungate Beach – Too crowded for me PS: Thanks to Tolstroy (Elroy Fernandes) for most of the pics. TRAVEL: Take a pre-paid taxi from Dabolim airport in Goa. There is also an option of bus just a km away...
