FIFA World Cup 2010.

Time to taint ourselves into tribes of different country. Only 11 days left for the Madness to begin, FIFA World Cup promises its best as a ritual carried on for decades. After the first win by Uruguay to the last winners in Italy, the eon if deciphered by me have lot to remember. The most grandeur and pomp, I must admit was in 2002, the year when I started to take the World Cup of Soccer seriously. The induction, I must admit came was flamed in by my school mates in Sourav Bose (Pachu), Suvodeep Rakshit, Aritra Das, etc. The fight between them was the support base between Germany, Brazil and Argentina. I loved Maradonna and for some reason, didnt like Brazil. Poeple used to think me crazy, but the seriousness grew with those end days of School End @ Calcutta Boys' School!
Brazil Won...
2006, Germany. The madness with Argentina, but that year loved the way Van Basten's boys played for The Netherlands! This year also, Netherlands are strong. Argentina and Brazil are always taken …

Blogitual...

Well..just a sweet togetherness of my Rituals and Romance with the digi-gizmo called Blog! I have always wondered as to how the name of the blog came? In fact what let to coining this name: BLOG... sounds like BOG (without the hole...here you make some or fill some!)...guess the first person who was about to create this extraordinary diary where all of the men, women, dogs and the FBI can have a peep into one's own life...having a say for free!!!
Today, as I made an early entry home from Chakdah, Nadia..after a futile cause of sampling, I came across a small envelope popping out of the mail box. It had superscribed :GOOGLE...with Rs. 1500* along side. Got some goosebumps...peculiarly, out of excitment....SO IT REALLY HAPPENED? I did get my first check for the ADSENSE or may be an AMAZON AD-WORDS, through my Blog, something that I always craved for as a good part of earning...but to me musing disappointment, it turned out a mere advertisement, where Googz want money and offers a spa…

Life...all binary..

For almost one month, I have been a constant parasite to the World of Mobile Internet, thanks to my carrier Airtel. With a pay of Rs 98, you can have a 2GB space to work with, but mind it...no downloads! Anyways, lets stick to the topic. I have been a frequent tweeter these days...and one of my follower have tweeted a very interesting observation: Its all 1 and 0, then how can we seek naked women on the screen...interesting...! Who ever devised the JPEG and Bitmap must have found colours in the monotony!
Taking a representation of life. Its also made of such 1's *happiness* and 0's *sadness*! If you have devised anything other than this simple routine, in which we have more periods of 0's rather than 1's, altering the whole equation...you are called casual...too irresponsible! Lets talk binary all the way in this post! For reference, please refer below (Courtesy ~TekMom):

The Universal Mind: Rabindranath Tagore.

Call him the contemporary writer, the post Victorian mind or the leader of Bengal Renaissance. Rabindranath Tagore is worshipped by all but none.

A figure more than the human parameters, his mind had woven the most abstract thought to the fruitful idea. His verses being able to bring about the revolution in the human mind, making the pen mightier than the sword. He might not have been one of the Power Fighters for Indian Freedom, but he ensured the dignity of the Motherland be voiced across the world, into the abyss of the Universe. Thats why, he is termed as "বিশ্ব কবি" (The Poet of the Universe).

One of the most rarest picture of Rabindranath without his beard and moustache is provided herewith, thanks to the attention brought about by my friend, Sounak Ghosh Roy. Its just after the funeral of Tagore's father.


Born to a rich and eminent family in Bengal, Rabindranath was never a good pupil... he was a standard II drop-out, but his creations speaks something else..... (…

The Dark Tide

"Yes, Your are Guilty" was the final verdict against Azmal Kasab. When every one seemed to take the trial of Azmal Kasab Ansari with a loose noose, the Indian Media popped in with the news...

Come Monday, 3rd May '10, the Indian Penal Court will deliver it's verdict for Kasab, the lone survivor of the Sept 2008's Mumbai attack, where several Indians along with foreigners were dead and India lost a few of her vallant sons! One of whom is Havalder Tukaram, who was the the Hero in the Kasab capture, when at Chattapati Shivaji Terminus, where Kasab was waging a lone shower of bullets towards the crowd from his AK 47, Havalderji jumped onto him with his single stick. He held the nozzle of the iron monster towards him and got the slash of 15 bullets. The time was enough for the other policemen to pounce on Kasab, then 21 years of Old! A Pakistani!!!

Unlike the TADA of the 1993 Mumbai Blasts, where the verdict was ultimately delivered after 13 years of wait, the Special…
