New Year Holidays


Finally today is the last day of extremely fevered holiday of the year, the New Year’s holiday. Well, this is very first time in entire history of my japan holiday when i have nothing to say and share. Why, because of this chilly winter and absence of my beloved trip partners Rakesh (Planner), Tilak, Pranay etc. Thanks to the god that at least I’ve got Syam and Sumit here otherwise i would have been in the living hell. Do you see the image in the left, this was the only fun i had in last one week rest was just like same as usual day. None of the day impressed or fascinated me so far. Now let me explain you in brief what happen in these days.
Actually the story begins from the eve of New Year holiday. Usually this is exceptionally good in Japan and this was the beginning of the end of the fun. This eve used to be the fun, gathering, lots of drink and cherishable moment but it's ended with the bored day and only few people joined. So let’s start day by day activities.
Day 1- The Dawn - Actually the beginning was quite impressive and full of fun. All friends joined me for kamakura trip. This was, i suppose, my fifth trip to the Kamakura. I really like this place. So as usual i was little late, Anju got some lunch stuff for us, Syam was dying to get his chicken burger and so on. We spend almost 6 hours together and played cricket too. One click is shown above. Finally ended with lavish dinner @ my home.
Day 2 - The day destroyer - Spent all my day in sleeping, cleaning my home (I like some hygiene @ my place), cooking food and watching movie and doing nothing.
Day 3 - The invitation day - Finally with some good words in my ear i got invitation from my college senior, Amit, for a royal lunch at his home. There i got company of two of my senior Anurag and Neeraj. The menu was chicken chorma, and biryani with hot roti. Unfortunately Neeraj doesn’t eat non-veg on Thursday and we were teasing him like anything. The taste was awesome. Just after the lunch me and Syam went to Akihabara and he bought good looking, robust Toshiba laptop. Same day i insisted a lot to sumit and other friends for attending countdown at minato-mirai. The day was breezing like North Pole of earth. Finally i ended saying i will not be able to make it. First time in history i denied my own excursion plan but sumit had to join this as he communicated the same to others. Bad Anwarul.
Day 3 - The Prayer day - Being Friday i had to go to the mosque for Juma prayer, I had plan to start from home by 11 for mosque and you won’t believe i slept till 11. Thank God we have a mosque nearby my office and by God's grace i made it happen. I was able to attend the prayer. The time i entered my home it was around 3 PM, i got called from sumit, coz i promised him to go to Akihabara with him. The day went bad as most of the shops were closed but they got some exciting offers from remaining one. Sumit finally got his iPhone and Rajesh grabbed 4 camera's (Of course not all for him).
Day 4 - The mix Day - Again I’ve been fortunate enough to get invited at Anurag's home and we had tasty, yummy vegetarian lunch. Just after the lunch i had some other stuff to do. I Jail broke another IPhone taking my count to 6. Then we just arranged our home and gave it all new fresh look.
Day 5 - The mix Day - It's Sunday and i did nothing but watched wwe, cooked lunch, had some evening sleep and now blogging. Entire holiday is finished and i am still struggling to get the big bang.
Tomorrow, the day will again start with same routine. Waking up early morning, running for office and doing work till evening and coming back to home.

Ohh yeah, this was the thrilling story of my holiday. Next week again we are having the long weekend and this time the gun is in Sumit's hand. He has to plan for the excursion and he has to make it bigger.

End of another greatest journey

Here is the end of 2009. The marvelous days and time of my life. The year really surprised me with the obstacle, made me aware of the realities of my self, gave me so many priceless memories which i always want to live. I have started so many new activities and loosed my patience to continue. I have been away from my blogging for almost 3 month due to my slothful nature. I've been shifted to the new apartment where i always want to be in Japan. Enjoyed the togetherness of the best roommate you can imagine. Took some high decision of my life and progressing towards it. First time in my life got addicted to the game (Mafia wars) ruined my spare times. Thanks to the God, i left it at some logical ending. After being away from my home at last spend Eid at my home. Which is one of the best part of this year. Added the ultimate gadgets on my Gadget yard. Never to forget some moments that was really freaking hard for me to live. Saw some really good serials and movies. Started doing some exercise and ended it so early.
These are some of the fact i am sharing for now. I really don't know what exactly i wanted to share here but posted whatever came in my mind.

Stay Hungry. Stay foolish

Well it's a known fact that every roses has its thorn. There is no admiration in this world that does not have pain beneath it. To gain something you have to loose something. Every good thing has its price. We see our real heroes to have good life, their magnetic glamor that pull us towards them. But did this all comes without sacrifice. The answer is no. Well today i was just shuffling through YouTube and looking about apple.inc chairman Steve jobs presentation about iPhone. I saw a video of Standford university where Steve jobs was the chief speaker. When my friend Sumit strongly recommended me to see this i started to watch this. It started with very brief about the Steve jobs and mostly talking about the good thing but when the Steve turns in, it was totally different. Apparently the man connected his life's dot and told the dog-ear pages. Well telling this story will be a serious mistake from my side and i strongly suggest you to watch and feel that what does it means to "Stay Hungry. Stay foolish" Feel the speech.

Holy Month - Ramadan


With all God's grace and blessing i am here to live and fast in the holy month of Ramadan. Ramadan has very prestigious significance in Islam. Many of us don’t know why Muslim’s fast and why on this particular month? What exactly is the time period and what they can eat after opening fast? Well without taking lot of time i will just brief what Ramadan is all about.
Fasting is one of the pillars on which Islam stands other than doing 5 times prayer, believing on one god and his messenger (PBUH), Zakat which is charity, and doing Hajj. During fast Muslims refrain from eating, drinking, smoking, and indulging in anything that is in excess or ill-natured. The time starts from the dawn to the dusk. Ramadan seems to be the holy month because the first verse of Quran had been send to the prophet (PBUH). This is ninth month of Arabic calendar. Every year as per the solar calendar the Ramadan moves 10 days back. In this month Muslim pray a lot and ask for forgiveness from God. It is told that if you’re fast has been accepted all your past sins shall be forgiven. Fasting means nothing but to purify yourself from all bad habits. Suppose I did a fast during day and at the same time I am doing all nonsense activity my fast will not be accepted by god. During this month we need to do lot of prayer and recitation of Quran along with our regular activities. After opening our fast we can eat anything which is said halal in Islam. During this month the heaven gates are open and hell gates are closed. So whoever passed away will be moved to heaven directly. After fifth time Namaz that is Isha we recite Quran by the means of Tarawih which is also a kind of prayer in which complete Quran gets recite in one month. In this month we have to make charity which is called Zakat. It is 2.5% of savings a Muslim does. This is also one of the mandatory activity and pillar of Islam.
Once Ramadan gets finish we celebrate Id-ul-fitr which is the biggest festival in Islamic believes. Hope this may have given you a little idea about Islam.
Happy Ramadan...

Slave to life


There was a time when nothing was predictable. Things were used to happen the way they want and literally in my way. Now it's time when everything is opposite. Now things are happening in the way i don't want. What a programmed life i am living here. Everything is defined and known. I have started feeling like i am the living time table. It is like a systematic programmed life of a bug boosted person. Why i am saying this? You want to know listen it now.
I wake up in morning @ 6:45 am has to be flawless other wise i will miss my train which i must catch @ 7:45 am after walking 15 minutes to reach JR (Japan railways). If anyhow i missed this i will miss my morning meeting which happen sharp @ 8:30 in morning. Which is an unacceptable loss. You know Japanese discipline. Then work like a slave till 11:45 after which i take lunch. When i get some free time during lunch time , i take some rest at my desk. Then starting from 12:45 till 6:30 work endlessly and later rush to catch the train to home. This is because the more i will be late for home the more time it will take to cook the dinner. Thanks my slow heating plate which take more than 30 minutes to make tea. Then start our fighting to cook dinner. Thank to Sumit and Heera who adventurously participate in cooking food. Dinner cooked no better than birbal ki khichdi. We obliged to have it between 10:30 to 11:00 am . We enjoy our dinner like hell and have some nice chat at night. Then as usual i log onto "picasaweb.google.com" to watch some featured photo which happen to be the most joyful moment coz i like colors and this give immense feeling and relaxation indeed. In this busy scheduled i am totally forgot to practice my Guitar. But i am going to start this immediately after Ramadan. May god fill some joy in my bored life and i get my old fultoo life. This is my daily routine now it's your time to judge and tell me whether it is bad or worst because there is nothing good in this.

For you thousand time - The kite runner


I had this novel which was suggested by Rakesh. I started reading this but due to some other activities left it in between. Two days back while walking through the Facebook Tashfeen bhai posted about this movie. I was quite surprised and hurried to watch this movie. I watched this movie indeed. The movie was bilingual with Arabic and English but i was enormously helped by the English subtitle.
This movies seems to be the best movie i have seen in near days. The great story has been flawlessly garnished with the beautiful direction, unmatched actors, tearful emotions & happiness and so many untold attributes. The story expressed the passion of a Friend which can go to any extent to fulfills his friends desires, a father who could bury his desire for his son, a leader who bet his life for others, a servant who bows to his master, a son who wish to die to complete duties of his father, the pain of the country and so many other things. The cinematography with the kites are unbelievable and remarkable. The first half of the movie is truly amazing and second half makes it more interesting. The dialogue which was the heart of the movie was "For you thousand time" stated by Hassan and Amir (The character of the movie). I haven't read the novel so may not be able to compare it with movie at this moment. The soul dialogue of the movie which made mark was the time when Amir told a story to Hassan where Hassan used to be storyteller in movie. The story starts like " There was a man who has the ability that when he cries his tears will convert into the peals. In order to get pile of pearls he killed his wife. Then hassan asked him if he just wanted to make himself cry why he killed his wife he can have a piece of onion to make himself cry". The story and scene is far more beautiful than i am writing here. I am not only suggesting but insisting you to watch this movie. Well i am going to have my eye on the second novel of the remarkable Khaled_Hosseini i.e. "A thousand splendid suns" and later will wait for the ultimate movie out of it.

The other side of me


This time the wind is blowing in little different direction. I am not gonna blog about my travelogue, guitar practice or something that is happening in the world but this time it is completely out of the box. This happened when my heart took over the control of my mind and my hands started being creative. The time was very different and generally rares in my day to day life. I did drawing which i used to do in my child hood. The drawing seems not to be good but the essence was very different. The drawing was reflecting Mt. Fuji of Japan with Taj Mahal of India. The two corner side of the paper had my company NEC's headquarter and the Pagoda of Japan. The travesty happen when at the top of the Fuji i was trying to put some birds but unfortunately i slipped my pen and stretched the line. Now what i should have done.?Gently i transformed the bird into most advanced jet fighter the Sukhoi -47. A hilarius cultural art with lethal weapon of mass destruction. After this i wrote down two "shayari" so called poem. Literally i don't know what is the meaning of it but i just took them out of me. This was the second time when i did this after year 1999 during my high school classes. Well sharing these with you for improving this to perfection and suggesting me what to so with these.

  • This was very first of the twisted one was - " Ek shab ke khumar ne zindagi ne yun angdayi li jaise dil ne jawani ki saari haratein sanwaar li"
  • The Second thought was "Jab kabhi unke anchal ke sayein mein zindagi ne apna saya dekha Meri ruh ne jhuk ke sajde mein bola aye khuda kya yahi tera noor hai".
Frankly speaking i still don't understand why i did this bus the fact is that i really enjoyed doing it. When i be alone in peace, some really good and great ideas come to my mind. May be next time i will come with some better and good one..


Cheers - Anwarul

Harry Potter - The blood sucker prince

It 1 am in the night and i am not able to hold my self to blog away after watching the movie "Harry potter and the half blood prince". The story began when the five of us Me, Hitesh, Sunil, Tilak and pranay planned to experience our first ever movie in Japan. Without doubt we selected Harry potter and the half blood prince. Well well, the movie name required to be changed from The half blood prince to The blood sucker prince. Continiuosly we bored for most of the time. Some of the animation of movie was really unmatched like previous series which i really admire. I used to enjoy Harry Potter with full velocity but from last series "The order of the phoenix" i an being get down in every front. But my main motive and attraction was to experience the movie in the world biggest screen with 3D IMAX motion. The first 12 minute of movie was breathtaking with it's rich 3D motion. It was ultimately a different experience to watch 2D movie in 3D motion. But this was not the end. Once 3D was finished i was astonished to see the crystal clear quality of the movie and thrilling sound created by IMAX. It seems that i am watching the movie in some best quality plasma HDTV. The contrast, brightness and color was mind blowing. We spend around 2200 yen for movie which is equivalent to 22 dollar and was quite expensive. I must say that i will associate only 1 dollar with the movie but the rest 21 dollar for the greatest experience of my life. I will not recommend to see the movie but to experience the theatre. May be next time i will go for some good action movie.

Delhi 6 - Best out of worst

"Delhi 6" movie was directed by the one who made a revolutionized movie called "Rang de Basanti" and was released somewhere in feb 2009. Delhi 6 is also known as a place called "chandni chowk" in Delhi. Local review of this movie was not that good and criticized very heavily. But shuffling through the torrent yesterday i found a good print of this. I insisted myself to download this movie. I am watching this movie while writing this blog. Frankly speaking the movie is very slow and really don't have any gripping moment. Having concept of some stupid kala bandar (black monkey) with communal riots. But there are some dialogue which are really heart touching and funny. speaking of which i am summarizing some dialogue below but will not recommend you to watch this movie.

  1. The very first was stated at very beginning of the movie when Abhishek bacchan came to Delhi 6. There some jalebi wala's was offering him jalebi and Rishi kapoor told the jalebi wala that he is now hungry. The jalebi wala replied very nicely that " bhuk mitane ke liye toh kutte khana khate hai, insaan khate hai rishtey banane ke liye"
  2. Second was when Waheeda rehman buying some stuffs for her funeral. Then Abhishek bacchan quated that " Hum kaise paida honge yeh tay nahi kar sakte but kaise jayenge yeh toh plan kar sakte hai" this was really a good one.
  3. Then the two smart kids. They heard that there is rumour that all men go to some girl who used to clean the localty. They wen to the girl bluntly said that " Hey humein bhi mard bana do". This shot was really funny shoot.
Ultimately i did not enjoyed the movie and it is finished now and Ahishek bacchan is dead. what the hell yaar. He should have died before so that movie could have finished earlier. lol.

An instant journey of 26 year

It was an instant journey which spans 26 years of my life indeed. The morning of 2nd July turned me to 26. This was neither an easy nor tough way for me. Since all ages the last year of my life was like a bowl of blessings to me. I been blessed with all the happiness that one can ever desires. I been given best of the best opportunity in my career, some really amazing friends that one can think of, colleagues and seniors which can provide guidance to the extent possible, the happiness to my family that I been wished for. I have initiated so many new things and terminated some undesired one. The next year resolution for me is to do something very innovative that may make me, my family and friend proud of. I am thinking of some and may be some day will the idea will knock at my minds door. At the end of the day I bow myself to the God who gave me all this in very early stages of my life. I don’t know what next he has for me. But I can pray and wish that whatever he gave me till date was an unimaginable dream for me. May my God continue to shower his blessing to my family, my friend and all other who are in need for it. Good bye for now and see you soon.

Learning Guitar is not as easy as it looks

It's almost a month and i am still struggling to watch my finger playinng on guitar string. Uffff. I am again giving a thought that should i continue or left it like my dream. Hmm. But actually the thing is that when i took something in my hand i like to make sure that it gets finished. The same passion will continue with this Guitar learning session. My plan is that next time when i will go to India i will have something to play and other thing is that many people though that i only bought for the sake of buying the instrument and will not play it later. So i want to make them feel that i can play this man (hehehe). May be it is very difficult task but bolne mein kya jata hai. Frankly speaking i am not trying my best. I start playing when i think so. Now i am thinking to make a 99 days plan for improving my guitar playing skill. My be next time when i blog something about my guitar section i would have great things with me. Also I must convey that Initially my finger was paining a lot but now they became hungry for guitar playing. So it is my job to keep them feeding by playing. :) So Keep going and give me some lessons.

Sunday, June 21, 2009

Want to have this skill and working on it.

Oops, first watch his guitar this is called "Harp guitar". Having all together innovative design. How beautifully he is matching strings and also his hand beats over the guitar. I saw some of "Andy Mckee" guitar playing video on YouTube. He is really an amazing guitarist. Watch this one. This is really soothing one.

What the Hell is this?

I don't have words to express my feeling. Whether this guy is playing with string of guitar or string is playing with his finger. This seems like game 'i spy you". I dont know much rule of playing guitar, but here i am damn sure that he is the one who is creating his own rule. Watch this man..

String of my life

Welcome to my life page.
When i was a child i had a bag full of dreams. Some was to fly in the sky, to roam around the world, to live outside my home town, enjoying international Job, earning money and so spending them to full my dreams. The one which was ultimately different was to skilled my self in a music instrument that blow out my mind. The characterstics of instruments was that it can be handled easily, should be light in weight and can give smooth, fine, as well as energetic rhythem. The one i wished was and suites perfect was accoustic Guitar. I never thought that God will give me opprtunity to realize all my dreams so soon. Yesterday another opportunity nocked my door and asked me that why dont you include a srting in your life. This dream accelareted when rakesh bought one guitar here in Japan some time ago. I had my hands on his guitar felt like this is the one which has to be mine as soon as possible. My fingers was starving for strings. But i was pretty slow to decide that whether i should posses this or not due to time and some other factors. But the basic instinct does not allowed to hold my self so long. Last week i visited some of shops here in kawasaki to own one guitar but none of them felt good in my fingers. This saturday i was pretty sure that whatever be the situation i am gonna have one good for my fingers and here is the heavenly beauty. All my own guitar. The lumber one. So now i am learning this with soft pace with help of a really good DVD. Wish me luck for this. I hope that very soon i will be skilled enough to play something. I will keep posted to you guys as new things will happen. Good bye for now have to go for practice. :)

Working holiday in India

Wooooooo. After nine month of working, living in entirely different world, breaking all rule of my discipline, cooking day in and out,watching all the serials which might have never seen, Making most of what is available and making new but really great Friends, spending money like hell, looking for new thing the time finally come when i can spare my two weeks with my family and some of my close to heart friends. Being on site the most difficult thing is to get holiday coz u don't have much in pocket. After 9 month i bagged only 5 leaves. But thanks to Japan government who has the policy of golden week which is government holiday. Considering both i managed to get 2 weeks of holiday. 25th April the day when i left Japan soil for my own India. It was raining cats and dog that day. I fly for more than 8 hours and landed to India. Thing were looking really different. My Mummy, Papa and Uncle was waiting for me at the airport to receive me. I was really glad to see them after long time. Then we routed for Chandni chowk where we stayed for 2 days. We did lot of shopping. I enjoyed lot of mughlai dishes and and eating like i was starving from my birth. on 27th we left for Mirzapur my native place which is at equidistant from Allahabad and Varanasi in Utter pradesh. I have booked the food menu for all day during my stay. My father who really wants me to eat so much added so many additional things. I have no choice but to accept it conditionally. My mummy who is really a great cook cooked so much for me. I ate beyond my limits and gained really too much weight in 2 weeks. I took little gifts for my relative from japan and distributed them same day. Someone was happy and some one not. It was really getting hot in summer time. I took oath that i will not be out from my home during day time but it was unavoidable. I went out so many time even having heavy restrictions. I didn't realized when time swiped off. I met more than 50 people during that time. Then time comes when i left my town for new Delhi. I was pretty upset coz i was leaving the loved one and at the same time was excited about meeting my great friends. I waited this for long time. Then i met my brother cum friend Nitish, Rakesh, Priya, Vinita, Vimal, my teammates. I had pretty exhaustive day there. I spare some of my fantastic time with Nitish, rakesh and Priya at barista caffe and the time passed in supersonic speed. I went to my privious company and met the old colleagues, my boss and all of us spared a memorable time. Then time comes when i wanted to meet my collage met living in Noida. The venue was fixed to our old adda the great India place at sec-18. Preeti and Jyoti walks in and we shared some time together. But i forgot that the time has changed as my other friends were so busy in doing other things. I realized that the time never be the same. No problem i will always try to preserve the relationship and rest i am leaving to the god. Next day which was Saturday i had to go to chandni chowk to meet my uncle who was coming from Mirzapur to see off me. That was too a struggling day for us. We roam around in market searching for something and finally we came back to hotel with empty hand and then left for IGI airport.

With this i finished my Working holiday in Indian and came back to Japan.....

An adventures Journey with Air-India

I have already heard too many nice instances about Air-India but thought the condition will not be that nice. :) Let me explain everything. I was returning to Tokyo from my two weeks cherish able holiday. My flight was from IGI airport New Delhi. The experience started from the moment i entered the queue of Air-India. There were so many passenger and 1 counter was left unattended rest 2 counter was serving both Japan and Dubai flight. I was standing just 3 passenger behind and it took more than 30 minute to reach the counter but this was an acceptable trouble. Now the time comes to fly with Air-India flight number AI 306. Air-India so called the national Carrier of India. Problem started with my LCD which was not working and i complaining endlessly but they tried only once and left with saying that we will do it after serving food. Being a good citizen i accepted this. Then they started serving drink. One person was sitting extreme left of the flight. Hardly i was able to see him but was listening his request. he asked for two drink and later one empty glass. The nice lady answered "You are occupying too much glasses sir". What is this he would have not asked it unnecessarily. Then it comes my turn. I have one glass of orange juice and was starving. She had just passed 2 rows and when i asked her about another one she gave another one with replying "the service is done sir". :). This isn't end here. In night i was thirsty like hell and ask the crew member for a glass of water, some how he arranged 2-3 partially empty bottle and from that he arranges to partially fill one glass water. I was really glad that i got water. next morning i denied to take breakfast and asked for water. Sarcastically she replied "You are drinking too much water sir." What the F***. This was an amazing experience with me. My Friend had served the rotten peanuts made by "Ghasitaram" for air-India. another friend rung bell a lot for service and no one came to help him. This was some of the experienced with great Air-India. Being a great patriot i hope Indian government companies service to benchmark Japanese and achieve that excellence.

I will put all my effort to make this one of the best visit to my home. I am waiting for my great and touching relatives, my Friends who really cares about me and so i do.

I will try to recall all those memories that i had in my childhood. But the things which really killing me is the weather of India. OMG it really gets warm during this season. After enjoying really cool weather of Japan (A nice country made by unmatched people) i am scared of India summer time. Don't worry these are also things which i need to enjoy. Well see you soon India.

What happens If INR 1 Rs = USD $ 100


This is one of the greatest fictions in today’s environment but I wish it to be true. India has to grow fast and we are the one who will do this. So guys come on lets get together and make this dream true. Let's come and show who we are and what we can do. Enjoy this interesting humorous chat shared by Tilak last night.


Year: 2050
Place: IBM, USA
(Two Americans Talking)
Currency Conversion Rate:
INR 1 Rs = USD $ 100
Alex: Hi John, you didn't come yesterday to office?
John: Yeah, I was in Indian Embassy for stamping.
Alex: Oh really, what happened, I heard that nowadays it has become very strict.
John: Yeah, but I managed to get it.
Alex: How long it took to get it stamped?
John: Oh, it was nasty man, long queue. Bill Gates was standing in front of me and they played with him like anything. That's why it got delayed. I went there at 2 AM itself and waited and returned by 4 PM.
Alex: Really? In India, it is a matter of an hour to get stamped for USA
John: Yeah, but that is because who in India will be interested in coming to USA man, their economy has been booming.
Alex: So, when are you leaving?
John: Anytime, after receiving my tickets from the client in India and you know, I will be getting a chance to fly Air-India. Sort of dream comes true.
Alex: How long are you going to stay in India?
John: What do you mean by how long? I will be settled in India, my company has promised me that they will process my
Hara Patta... (Green card)
Alex: Really, lucky person man, it is very difficult to get a
Hara Patta in India.
John: Yeah, that's why, I am planning to marry an Indian girl there.
Alex: But you can find lots of US girls in Hyderabad, Bangalore and
Mumbai.
John: But, I prefer Indian girls because they are beautiful and cultured.
Alex: Where did you get the offer, Hyderabad?
John: Yeah, salary is good there, but cost of living is quite high, it is Rs. 2000/- for a single room accommodation.
Alex: I see, that's too much for US people, Rs.1/- =$100/-. Oh God! What about in Bangalore,
Mumbai?
John: No idea, but it is less than what we have in Hyderabad. It is like the world headquarters of software
Alex: I heard, almost all the Indians are having one personal Robot for help.
John: You can get a BMW car for Rs. 5000/-, and a personal Robot for less than Rs.7500/-. But my dream is to purchase Ambassador, which costs Rs.2, 00,000/- but has got a lovely design.
Alex: By the way, who is your client?
John:
Subbarao and Apparao Associates, a pure Indian company, specializing in Embedded Software.
Alex: Oh, really, lucky to work in a pure Indian company. They are really intelligent and unlike American Body shoppers who have opened their Fly-by-night outfits in India. Indian companies pay you in full even when you are on bench.
My friend Paul Allen, it seems, used his bench time to visit
Bihar, the most livable place in India, probably world. There you have full freedom and no restrictions. You can do whatever you want! I
wonder how that state has perfected that system.
John: Yeah man! you are right. I hope our America also follows their footsteps.
Alex: How are you going to cope with their language?
John: Why not? From my school days I have been learning Hindi as my first language here at New York. At the Consulate they tested my proficiency in Hindi and were quite impressed by my cent per cent score in
TOHIL i.e. Test of Hindi as International Language.
Alex: So, you are going to have fun there.
John: Yeah, I will be travelling in the world's fastest train, world's largest theme park, and the famous
Bollywood where you can see actors like, Hrithik, Shah Rukh Khan and all. Esselworld is also near Bollywood.
Alex: You know, the PM is scheduled to visit US next year, he may then relax the number of visas.
John: That's true. Last month,
Narayana Murthy visited White House and donated Rs. 2000/- for infrastructure development at a Silicon Valley and has promised more if we follow the model of High-
Tech City of Bangalore . Bill Gates also got a chance of meeting him. Very lucky person.
Alex: But, Indian government is planning to split
Narayanamurthy's Infosys.
John: He is a hard worker man, he can build any number of
Infosys like this. Every minute he is getting Rs. 1000/-. It seems, if you keep all his money converted as Rs. 100/- notes you can reach Pluto.
Alex: OK, Good Luck John.
John: Same to you Alex. And don't go to Consulate in a "
Kurta Pyjama" because they will think you are too indianised and may doubt you will never come back and hence your Non-Immigrant Visa may get rejected. But don't forget to say " Namaste, aap kaise hai " to the Visa officer at Window 5. It seems he likes that and will not give you a visa if you don't greet him that way.

The interveiw with God.......

We know that God is the one who created us, know exactly who we are, what we desire, what makes us happy, what makes us sorrow, what makes us smile and what makes us cry. He can give all the happiness to everyone but if he does so wewill never remember him again. That is the nature of human being. We have no boundaries of our wish. What we desire desperately today may become undesirable tomorrow. We wish to posses everything exist in the world. We forget our today to care about the future. We expect so many things form him without paying anything in back. How amazing it would be if we get a chance to talk to the God and know what he thinks about us. Here is the presentation which expresses what all we want to know from God.

An Indian visiting US navy base in Japan!!!

I have always dream to be at the Military base not for war but visiting. :) This saturday when i went to an acupressure clinic with my friend Pranay, i met a very interacting lady who suppose to escort us to the clinic, as usual i started walk the talk. While chatting she told me that the acupressure expert belong to Yokosuka which seems to be the US Naval base in Japan. This is constructed after the world war II. I became very excited and started asking her too many question about it. As a result i get to know that this is open for visitor. She also told me that this sunday is some special day to visit and she send me the map information later that day. I have nothing but to thanks her a lot for the information. I decided to walk myself to Yokosuka-Chuo. I took Keikyu line from Kawasaki and arrive the base Yokosuka at no later than 1400 hrs. Coz this was the timing to close down the entry. I met a japanese commander to enter to the base. As usual due to his communication problem i've been transfered to an american commander and the worst thing appeared. He explained me that the entry is only limited to those who have any sponsor within the navy base. Which means any friend, relative who can escort the visitor and keep and eye on the visitor. I tried all my trick even i was ready to handover him all my id credentials but he was help less. The commander tried too. Then i had no choice but to have visual from outside. I moved to nearest mall (Spy see) and saw the Navy ship, Submarine and felt how good it would be from inside. I had nothing but to stare it lot through by any means. I used a binocular too, which was available at the shopping mall to see base and for which you need to pay just 100 Yen. There was a cruise ship to sail you around the island but that was closed. I didn't realized and spent 1 hrs. Then i enjoyed a kids show running inside the mall for 10-15 min. Having some walk around i found a replica of "Statue of liberty" standing tall at an Irish pub and looked so weird. The weather was so cloudy and beatuful and resisting me to not leave the place. After spending more than 2 hrs i decided to move back to my home town. Yeah it was a good day indeed.

As one of the most successful man suggest.

Hi Guys,
We all expect the new year to come with new prospects, blessing, success, growth, ambition, but the year 2009 slaughtered everything very genuinely. This is the time when we are standing in the living hell. People are losing their job, business are getting shut down, students are afraid of their future nightmare. Well this crisis seems not go off easily but going to take hell lot of time and we need to stand straight to deal with this. As one of the most successful business man Warren Buffett gave his advice to take over the situation calmly. I read a blog about this and really admired this so though it would be worth sharing and writing the same for you. Read it and take it wisely.


Ø Hard work: All hard work bring a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.
Ø Laziness: A sleeping lobster is carried away by the water current.
Ø Earnings: Never depend on a single source of income.. [At least make your Investments get you second earning]
Ø Spending: If you buy things you don't need, you'll soon sell things you need.
Ø Savings: Don't save what is left after spending; Spend what is left after saving.
Ø Borrowings: The borrower becomes the lender's slave.
Ø Accounting: It's no use carrying an umbrella, if your shoes are leaking.
Ø Auditing: Beware of little expenses; A small leak can sink a large ship.
Ø Risk-taking: Never test the depth of the river with both feet. [Have an alternate plan ready]
Ø Investment: Don't put all your eggs in one basket.
Take something out of this if you really read it. How did you find this? keep commented.

What i am listening


Hey there,
Well i have been told by someone that i have a good sense of music and have good collection of them too. First of all thank you to the one who said that. Frankly speaking this is true. I am very choosy and moody for music in my life. I have songs for all my mood. It can start from very slow instrumental, passing through Ghazal, feeling the unmatched 80's & Romantic, touching the light metal song and ending to high beat of trance. It's all about my mood and time. I interpret music as My Ultimate Sense of Inside Corner. Did you get that? Yeaaaah.
Music seems to be the most important thing for me. Considering this, God always blessed me with some devices starting from the old cassettes to the advanced 16 GB I-phone just to make sure that i do not have limitation of storage. I make sure that they are loaded with the best songs that any one can expect from me. Keeping my song limited to myself may not help you guys to have a taste of this. So here is the solution, i will be sharing one of my favorite song at undefined frequency to make sure that you get a feel of what i am listening these days. As i said i have a song for everyone, every time and every mood so it's my job to make sure that you get all the diversity that i have shown above. As this is my first show up on "My jukebox" i will keep this space only for introduction. Next stuff on label - "My Jukebox" will surely come with some exciting sound. So keep looking this space for My Jukebox. Remember music is life - Anwarul

Lost in the world of dreams

Hello All,
So here is the first thing which i am jotting down after turning my blogs into different shape. This is about the moment when my day turned out to be an ultimate day where i was dreaming all the time. Me Rakesh, Sumit has planned to visit some unique place before they get back to India. Well Mustafa was also supposed to join us but he was a bit tired, so decided to be slept rather than roaming with us. We planned this tour for full week and it was an excursion to the Disney land, Tokyo. We left Kawasaki around 9:00 hrs for Disney land. We cruised for almost 45 minutes and landed there around 10:00 hrs.
Wow, i cant tell you the feeling it was when i entered. I was completely astonished with the things around me, suddenly I've pulled back to my childhood by those BeAuTiful architecture, characters, music, theme park and lot more stuffs. We put robust plan in place to cover everything knowing the fact that it is impossible in one day but we started. I dont like riding but this time i did a lot. Due their 25th anniversary celebration we were fortunate to see the cool pared involving most of the Disney character. That was the most amazing moment of the entire day. We sailed the boat, took ride to the mountain, travel to the space, swirled in the soccer and cup, enjoyed 3D film, horrified in the haunted house, saw the looted things by captain jack sparrow, and finally saw the sparkling pared consisting of millions of light.
There are two places to visit, 1 is Disney land and other is Disney sea. As i have not been to Disney sea so will not be able to describe anything about it but for Disney land some of the information which you must have before visiting is provided below.
Pocket fall: Your pocket will fall by 5800 yen for adults and less than this for child and senior citizen. If you are in NEC headquarter in Japan (Like me) you will be discounted with 400 yen per person.
When u have the ticket and map: Just select the one thing to visit and get the fast pass. coz you need to wait a lot to get entry into any good attraction. so your waiting time will covered to take your next free pass.
My Moments: Click the above posted photo to see most of the attraction at Disney land.
Will be back soon – Anwarul Alvi
