Those who remember the Aziz Mirza directed SRK starrer might also remember Paresh Rawal's hanging scene at the end which was quite sarcastic in itself.
The whole thing revisited my mind when I saw news channels depicting Saddam
Hussein's hanging going on.Every channel is quoting," Do not go away.We have some
special pictures for you." as if they have found the El-dorado.
I neither know what kind of Journalism is this nor I want to know.Just to gain some TRP's,To get some advertisement revenues they are showing how a person is going
to die.For me this commercialization of death is totally inhuman and pathetic.

Binary Files

Have you ever thought why we see those strange looking characters(Special Characters) when we open a binary file or a executable file in a text editor?
This is the way of the text editor to tell the user ,"Stupid,you are trying to view a file which you even cannot read."Since the editor does not want to tell this explicitly it uses the special characters to convey the info like the way we use *#%$ to convey some special adjectives.

Why not acknowledge?

With respect to an earlier post by Amit Verma where he mentions that two of songs created by Shantanu Moitra ("Pal-Pal from Lage Raho Munnabhai" and "Kaisi Paheli Zindgani from Parineeta") are directly lifted.
Similarly the blockbuster song "Bheegi-Bheegi from Gangster" by music director Pritam is a direct lift from Bengali rock band Moheener Ghoraguli's song "Prithibi Ta Naki".
The point is when you are lifting songs or infact directly copying any art why not acknowledge it while releasing your creation? That way at least there will not be a shadow of doubt on your other works.

A tough choice to make...

Today is a holiday in my office.Still I am there .I in fact like the fact that there is almost absolute silence(Being a engineering student I am little bit afraid to use the word absolute with the ac creating some noise or the odd vehicle honking outside the building but in the end it is more or less silent).I can work the way I want without someone interrupting me. I can talk loudly to myself,I can sing loudly and In the end it helps me concentrating better in my work.But nothing comes for free.
So,if I want to work the way I like ,I will have to come on holidays,on weekends ,and on weekdays I have to sit late in the night.Now that's a tough choice to make.........

Practicality and Soccer

Many a times practicality is an excuse for our inability of not doing things as they should be done or doing things the wrong way.But sometimes it is better if we do things the pratical way.
To me the option of Penalty shoot out in soccer to decide the outcome
of a match also seems to be a practical approach rather than an ideal solution.I see it this way:-
" Soccer is a game of 11 players,a team.Not of individuals.Otherwise Real Madrid would have been the undisputed champions of club soccer.But when it comes to penalty shoot out it depends on one person.A bad penalty, A good save and the decision is done.It's a better approach considering the position of players after 120 min. of football,considering the fact that extending the game might make the game drab.
But in the end nothing can beat the excitement of seeing a Grosso,a Cambiasso and a Rodriguez doing the act when all the 22 players are on the ground."
