Celebrating Non Birthday

I am sure there must be people around the world who must be celebrating each and every day of their lives except for their birthdays. You know, coz you are getting older on your birthday but on other days you just stay the same age as you are – you stay young. I guess a trend should come up wishing happy non-birthday or unhappy birthday to you...

Linkedin Add Image Functionality Wont Work

No matter what you try, you cannot change the banner image of your company when you try to do so on your company’s Linkedin page. When you click on “Add image” while editing your page, a popup can be seen which says: “PNG, JPEG, or GIF; max size 2 MB. Image must be 646 x 220 pixels or larger. Note: You can crop your image once it’s uploaded.” Make sure you choose the image correctly because if you choose an image which you wish to change later on then it won’t let you do so. Here is a post written by Jo Shaer about it in 2014: http://inbound.lollipoplocal.co.uk/social-media-blog/help-i-cant-upload-a-header-image-to-my-linkedin-company-page It is 2016 and the issue still remains the same. If you try to add another image, you will be able to see the same image which you initially uploaded. If you change browser and try to do this, even then you will get the same result. If you choose a third browser and remove the image and then try to add another image, you will still get the same image which you first uploaded. Update: Did not work even after clearing entire history and cache. Please mention in comments section if you face the same issue or have been able to solve it...

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.
