Treasure with 120 pearls,found a way to spend them

There is a very famous saying that time and tide waits for none...Once the time flies away it never comes back.

As a result ,many times we regret on not having enough time to achieve our goals,fulfill those most important desires and utilize the opportunities to full extent.
It is a common thing today that most of our time is devoted to our duties and we find nearly no time for relaxation,self improvement or even our family.

According to a survey conducted on 1000 Indians, they were asked few questions and they had to answer in yes or no

  yes                                no

I need more time , I tend to cut back on my sleep
 185                                 24

I feel stressed as I have less time in a day
 206                                 35

I worry that I spent less time with my family and friends
 255                                  28

I feel trapped in daily routine            
 320                                  10

I get no time for my passion, my hobbies    
 213                                  30

So according to the survey , today people are suffering from time crunch.
Everyone craves for that extra chunk of hours.

Sometimes siting beside the window ,with a cup of coffee in our hand we often contemplate on the the fact that "24 hours are not enough", we want more time...a couple of hours more probably was what we wished for, as it would fill the time crunch.

So listening to our pious and honest thoughts,the goddess of time Surfexcelia fulfilled our wish and gave us 2 extra hours in a day.

                                              Goddess Surfexcelia

So now that we have 2 extra hours lets decide on how to utilize it to the fullest.
Here comes the list of all priorities where we can devote the time
4.Hobbies or Passions

The 120 minutes are like the pearls of a treasure where each one of them is very precious and can help you build fortunes.

How to utilize them.

Protesting against the social crimes on individual level would do no betterment of society as it requires a large scale revolution as led by Anna Hazare.
If I think about the betterment of human kind on a larger picture , setting up an NGO or working for a cause will take atleast2 years.
I can't change the system or fill up its lope holes in so less span of time.

So the next thing that came to my mind is what is so important to me for which I can devote these beautiful 120 pearls.

I started dreaming...........Here are the thoughts that came pouring in....

I am very passionate about dance so lets join a dance class and sink in the immense pleasure of rock and rolling.

Or why not sit at the seashore and watch the tides coming by , water touching my body gently, wow what a wonderful feeling.

Reading about the biggies of this era fascinates me so why not pick up biographies of legends like Steve Jobs and get to know how the miracle happened.

Once those fingers strike the guitar and words starts pouring out to meet the rhythm nothing gives more pleasure than the music produced which flows like a river.

When we are in trouble we say "hey bhagwan", but what about the remaining time, do we thank god for all this spectacular things he has given to us , rarely I suppose.
So I would like to show my gratitude to almighty by devoting my time for him.

I have thought about my pleasures, hobbies , almighty but what about my mind, my body which keeps me active and ahead all the time.
Should I join a gym or should I  immerse into the world of spirituality and  meditation to get that refreshing peace of mind.

Well pondering  for some half an hour I have finally got the most efficient , lovely and heart touching way of utilizing those 120 pearls.

I would make special thanks giving collage to those very special people in my life which deserves every pearl of this treasure.The collage will be having snaps of the memories which we shared together accompanied by a sweet note or a short poem.

In today's life  we are miser in showing gestures of gratitude when we receive a helping hand from someone.
We are so busy with our life ,work, schedule that we even forget to make our near and dear ones realize how important they are to us and that we will be always there for them.
Bonding dwindle, gaps becomes wider and even relationships come at the verge of ending because of our
 "I don't care attitude".

So I would devote every pearl of the treasure to make my bonding robust.

Hera are those special people

My Parents-
When I was a in school I used to make greetings for my parents on their b'day and anniversary.
I used to arrange a party and even cook for them.
Now that I am in Mumbai for my job, we only talk on cell that also for half and hour.
So I would make a special collage to return .01% part of all love and care they have given to me.
Somewhat similar to this, but with snaps of lovely memories.

                                        Photoshop creation(1)

Best Friends

They are my secrets gal next door finders..
my 2am friend...they are my best pals..
But many times I have failed to tell them how much they mean to me , either because of lack of time or lack of words.
With my special collage I would like to fill in for what I had lacked that time.

                                     Photoshop creation(2)
We come across sincere , well wisher, helping , bully, asshole, backstabber and many more types of colleagues . But there are those who are more than a colleague to us.
So a special collage for those special ones at work.

Well Inko to aap phele se kafi kuch de chuke hote ho...:P
But for all love, support, and yeah those special unforgettable moments I would more than happily make a collage for her also which I do usually..:)

                                     Photoshop creation(3)

For all support, motivation , advice, suggestions and yeah all that Khari Khoti which was actually meant for my betterment I would love to show my respect to them through a very special collage.

                                     Photoshop creation(4)

Well Wishers
Finally for all my well wishers and fans..if a single also exists at all...:P
I would write a thanks giving note to them and keep it with me till I find one cheering around loud..

For all the newbies of corporate world let's look at what the fish is Investment

People like me who are new to corporate world are very excited when they get their first salary...
we buy gadgets, clothes, gifts for our siblings and parents...But as the time passes by and when 1st time income tax is cut from the salary we feel annoyed , agitated and puzzled  as in what to d....??
This is the time the word Investment is heard by most of us for the 1st time...either by our parents, seniors ,siblings or friends..We search many sites like Moneycontrol , Economic times but we don't get a proper overview of  what this investment is..??  and how ,where should we start investing..??

In today' era Investment in young age is very necessary for a bright future....Surplus money is required at every critical and imp step of your life..when you marry....have kids....etc..
Even when you are a bachelor and lives in a city like Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Bangalore which are so expensive and  not to forget have the most happening nightlife of India...The petty salary of 25-30k bucks per month will do no good...
So Investing at young age is mandatory....

Today's let's have a glimpse of what all instruments are available in the market which form the backbone of any portfolio....

  • Stocks : (" The only thing constant here is change")

    The first and foremost requirement is to have a Demat account in any of the known brokerage house...
    Investing in stocks has a very high risk associated to it, but at young age it is the most recommended and desirable means of investment.

  • Mutual Funds : (" Smart way of investing" )

    Today we have mutual funds of many companies like HDFC, ICICI, SBI, RELIGARE ,AXIS, KOTAK etc...Investing through SIP (systematic investment plan) is the hottest trend today..Some mutual funds also fulfill dual purpose of investment as well as tax saving..

  • PPF : (" Provision for secured future" )

    PPF stands for public provident fund.
    A ppf account can be opened in government sector banks as central bank of india, SBI etc...
    Interest on ppf accounts are much more than a normal saving account..It helps in tax saving..

  • Commodities : (" Mint money by tapping on goods ")

    Investing in gold is the hottest trend in today's world..We can also invest in gold via GOLD ETF ( gold exchange traded funds) .

  • Insurance: ( "Insure your dear ones and procure wealth simultaneously" )


    Insuring our self is the need of the hour as our lives have become so unpredictable that we cant say whether we will be able to see the sunrise tomorrow morning..
    So we have to secure our family even after we are not in this world...
    The best way is to insure ourselves...There are many insurance products available today which gives you a 3 in 1 or 4 in 1 package( insurance, investment, tax saving all together). But what i prefer is a term insurance which is pure insurance and nothing else..

  • Saving Account : (" Simplest way to save money ")

    Last but not the least a saving account which everyone of us might be having...

    There are also some other instruments which are not recommended for the newbies of the corporate world..
  • Real State : (" Don't wait to buy real state, buy real state and wait" )

    A huge amount of capital is required to invest in real state, so for beginners like us its really not recommendable and also affordable.
  • Money Market Instruments : (" Market for short term gains " )

    Money market instruments are short term debt instruments.Most common are
    Certificate Of Deposit , Treasury Bills , Commercial Paper , Municipal Notes...

  • Bonds : (:Bond with the best ")

    A bond is  a formal contract to repay borrowed money with interest at fixed intervals. Bonds are issued by  public authorities , credit  institutions , companies  and super national institutions in the primary market.

    Some of the instruments which have become obsolete today are
  • Fixed Deposit : ( "Most trusted way of preserving wealth in the past ")
  • Post office accounts : ( " No risk with healthy returns " )

    In the coming posts I will be talking in depth about each of the Investment instruments I have mentioned..
    If you like my post and if it solves your investment problems to some extent also than please comment...:)

Samsung Galaxy Tab 750, for those who want nothing else than perfection....

January 27 was a day when history was made...It was the first time Steve Jobs introduced to the world to something called ipad...from that day tablet became something other than what you take when ill..A group of tablets came to ruin the apple's party..but in vain...Apple relaxed till something called Samsung Galaxy Tab 750 was introduced in the market by the biggie "Samsung" on 10th August 2011..

The star of galaxy was too big for the small apples to handle....:P

So what makes Samsung Galaxy Tab 750 the most desirable tab on earth...
Lets have a look at its exciting features which makes you crazy about it..

Dimensions: Size of 256.7 x 175.3 x 8.6 mm and a weight of just 565 grams.

The first appealing thing about this tab is its impressive looks and weight...
Samsung has adopted a widescreen design with the Galaxy 10.1. While other tablet manufactures like Acer too have adopted similar form-factors, the implementation on the Galaxy Tab is superior thanks to its being ultra light at 565 grams making it more comfortable for over extended periods of use. And yes, it is lighter than the iPad 2 - by a minute 36 grams.
The comparisons with iPad 2 don't stop here as the svelte Galaxy Tab 10.1 snatches the tag of the world's thinnest tablet from the iPad 2 by 0.2-mm. 8.6-mm vs 8.8-mm may seem negligible but it matters a lot when it comes to heavy usage.

Display: 10.1″ wide HD display with 16 million colors, the capacitive type
touchscreen,16:10 image aspect ratio and WXGA resolution of 1280 x 800

The 10.1 inch display adds feather to its crown...The 1280 x 800 pixels resolution guarantees a crisp and picturesque images of those memorable moments who always wanna remember...The display also support high definition playback.. Since it is capacitive and multi-touch type, the sensitivity of the screen is perfect and it has fast touch response. You can write on this Tab’s keyboard at the same speed as you write on your computer’s keyboard and the response speed is comparatively higher than the tablets in this segment.

Operating: Android Honeycomb OS 3.1

The Galaxy Tab 750 runs on the latest iteration of the Android Operating system developed by Google- Android 3.1 (Honeycomb).But to differentiate the Galaxy Tab from their Android competitors in India??...Came the answer.. It was TouchWiz UX, the Android skin implemented on the Galaxy Tab which makes it superior to other tabs...

Processor: 1 GHz Dual core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor

When a 1GHz NVidia Tegra 2 processor and 1GB of RAM power a device, we expect it to be a speed demon and so it is...The device is very smooth and the performance is predominant.
Multitasking is never been so easy on a tab, thanks to the robust NVidia processor..

Multimedia: Audio: MP3, WMA, WAV, AAC, AAC Plus, eAAC +, AMR and MIDI.
Video: MP4, 3GP, WMV, DivX, XviD, H.264 and H.263.

Thanks to 10.1″ wide WXGA HD display which makes our day when playing favorite movies and videos in high definition and also to NVIDIA Tegra 2 for the speed it gives to the Tab.
It supports most of the popular audio and video format available under the sky..The audio quality is of great power and plays music sharply even at maximum volume..
So simply Samsung Galaxy Tab 750 rocks in the multimedia category.

Synchronization: Bluetooth 3.0, Direct Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n and A-GPS
and Connectivity

As always with Android devices syncing is probably amongst the easiest things to do. The same can be done on the Galaxy Tab, but Samsung has stepped up the game with the 'Kies Air' Wi-Fi sync application. All one has to do is connect to a Wi-Fi network . The app will reproduce an IP address, which we need to type in our browser, and voila! We have access to all the data. We can drag and drop files, save messages and much more.


And the most exciting of all features is Samsung’s proprietary UI- TouchWiz.
Apart from the standard Google apps, The Galaxy Tab 10.1 brings in much more utility thanks to TouchWiz UX.

some of the most important apps include the following:

1. Samsung Hubs
2. Samsung Mail
3. Gmail
4. Kobo eBooks
5. Pen memo
6. Photo Editor
7. World Clock
8. Polaris Office

The most promising is Samsung hubs: namely the Social hub which basically aggregates all information from one's E-mails, Facebook and Twitter and Music hub which is not available in India.
I am very much excited to play Angry Birds on my galaxy tab...
To read my review on angry birds please click here and promote it if u like it..

Other Features which though general, but adds to the beauty of the tab are...

Camera: 3 Megapixel with LED flash, 720p HD video recording, auto-focus, smile
detection,image stabilizer and Geo-tagging.

The front 3 Megapixel camera is idle for all those who are not a pro in photography. We get many options such as white balance, focus modes, Scene Mode, effects and Geo tagging.

Battery: Li-Po type with 7000 mAh capacity

The battery incorporated with Galaxy Tab 750 is Li-Po type with 7000 mAh capacity.
On moderate use i.e playing music and watching movies the battery lasts for 8-9 hours which
is pretty good as compared to other tabs..

Connectors: 30-pin dock connector port and 3.5mm stereo headphone jack

User are given the choice to choose their earphones, so one an select from a wide range available..


The dual surround sound speakers will surely make my experience of watching a movie or listening to music come lively and rejuvenating..

Finally coming to

The Verdict

I can easily say that Samsung Galaxy Tab 750 is best of the rest and a close competitor to Apple Ipad-2. It is excellent in terms of quality of materials and fairly complete in terms of features.
So just go for it...pick it right away...:)

Flinging birds at the pigs can't get more addictive than dis!!!....

These days it is all about the apps. There are apps for iOS. There are apps for Android. There are apps for Windows Phone 7. Now there are apps for Macs, and thanks to Intel, there are apps for netbooks … and a great new way to find what’s out there.
Intel’s AppUp is “Your source for netbook apps”. It is a great resource for anyone who has a netbook, and it is worth checking out even if you don’t.

AppUp is a free download for Windows XP, Windows 7 and Moblin that lets you find, download and update all the apps you need for fun and productivity. Installing AppUp takes just a few seconds, and it can be found here on the AppUpp site. From there you can browse an ever-growing app collection and install the ones you like on your netbook.

Now coming to the most favorite App of all "Angry Birds".

Popular Games of the past

There was a time when we used to quarrel with our brothers/sisters to get the remote of the TV video game to play “Super Mario”. One more popular game of those days was “Dave” . There began a trend in the Gaming after the late 90s . Every electronic company tried to add gaming feature to their electronic devices. For ex. TV, Cell Phones, PC, even for calculators and Watches do came loaded with games as the Gaming era went on deeper.

There is a myth in Gaming world that, only High definition games of huge sizes (in GBs) are good to play. It isn’t that right. Games like Snake, Dave & Mario are great examples of how the simplest concept can be turned into an extremely addictive game. Of course yes, games become addictive not just because of their complication, It is all whats there inside the game and not how much the game is.

The concept of Angry Birds

Such a game is the little “Angry Bird” developed by developed by Finland-based Rovio Mobile. Which was the Largest selling app on the Apple’s iTunes in the last year. Angry Bird was shot to be so famous just by a simple and devilishly addictiveness the game consists. The most pretty thing in the game is the cute characters which comes in. As soon as the Game started earning millions on iPhone, iPad and other devices. Android version was soon made for the users which was given away for free.

Finally came the PC version

As the popularity of the games went on building, a PC version of the game was released by the Intel AppUp store (a PC app store) which became made easy for almost anybody to play the Angry Bird game. All you need to play is 4.99$ to get this game for your PC from AppUp store. which is not so expensive compared to other games we buy on Internet. Although it doesn’t look much economical , It is worth playing it on PC.

Characters of the Game

Red– Wood Breaker
Blue– Glass Jaw
Green– Parabeak
Yellow– Mocking Bird
Black– Kamikaze Bird
White – Egg Beater

My opinions

The Game is well carved and polished, with only one drawback that you cannot get the scores updated for your PC version of the game from the mobile version of the Angry Bird.

The concept of the Angry Bird is so simple yet addictive, The players launches the Birds using a slingshot to destroy the pigs stationed on or within other various structures. Player will also get special birds with more features as the games proceeds further.

Angry Anna came the Angry birds way
