Crazy world of - Social Networking -



Recently got a call from a leading business magazine to write up articles for MBA and the power of social networking (SN) linked with MBA's .

Then, an email from one of my good old friends who happens to be working for a major social networking web portal to write something for the portal.

The two situations , if linked well , have a common "pathway".

They want you to be heard. Agreed.
They also want you to use your skills..whatever they may be....Agreed....
and more over ......... enough....kuch bhi ......:P

Thoughts , views and likes are one and the same thing.
I am already doing this through my blog.

The concept of social networking....its a tricky word to say so......is not new.And most my learned readers are familiar with it.

And what makes me say that - My cousin's cute little son ( 8 years ) was pissed off with me .

Why ?

I called him up to wish him "happy wala birthday" rather than dropping into his facebook "wall".

I don't know if he knows what "SN" is all about but he certainly knows how to use the various applications on FB.

I still remember , in fact, I don't , when Payal introduced me to Hi5.Ages back.....rewind........

It was a great hit that time and everyone was a part of it. Including me.

It was such an addiction that my precious "one" life was actually going away after putting in so much hours of Hi5 work.

Now,I don't know about others but at least I don't even remember my user name and password for Hi5.

Forward.....

It's all gone.

Then came in orkut.....and what happened is history.
Now FB is the way. Till date.......

huh !!

I have seen my friends go on and on and on. Its the best use of viral marketing that one can think of. You meet old friends , whom you lost base with long back , you make new ones , if lucky ,you find "that" ones as well.....

And whats more when you have games like "Mafia wars" and "crazy taxi" there's lot more to want for.

Sending flowers , gifts , "tagging" people , changing status messages and letting everyone know that YOU EXIST . Rather you're a part of all this.

I get bored with things very easily. Things need to be changed / make changing , for me to stick on.

I don't know how much of these "SN" have affected me or my life....but certainly I have put in a lot more hours in these .

When me and Pooja were working on our foundation project , a small girl asked me- "Bhai...computer(laptop she was referring too) mein kya kya hota hai.isse aap "sab kuch" kar sakte ho kya.

And that's when I realised no matter which ever SN site you join you can't find this little friend . She needs in "my man hours" more than those SN out there.

Its good to be in touch with the latest around you . But at the same time its best to use your life to bring a smile to others.I know its easy to say and hard to do...but that's it.

I myself have found so many of my lost buddies that I thank "SN" like these . However, I don't know if at all , the cell phones , the cards , the letters would go away and everything would be online.

There is so much to do and time always keeps ticking. We choose what we feel like. Its an individual decision.

btw- need to update my status on all SN sites .New Blog Post posted after all......

uff.....some people I tell you...... :P

BTW - I have my own personal FaceBook page now and may I request you to  ' like' / 'comment' / 'share' , in case you like my writing or me :) .

Being an Indian Police Service Officer - an IPS

Everytime I watch movies like  - Sarfarosh , Gangaajal or Sehar , all I want to be, in this life is - an IPS officer. 

You may think its the power and the pride that comes with the post which an IPS officer holds or some of you may say its the sheer status the word IPS reflects upon one. 

The perks like most of us know, is having an unprecedented power, ( used to-be) a lal-batti , a huge team which does ' Jai Hind ' and a whole lot of a new world .





Given, I have had a good fortune to be in a family of friends who are IPS and know and understand from them what is it being an IPS officer most of the above mentioned movies or may be the image we tend paint in our minds is very different from what actually is an IPS officer and what all does s/he undergoes to be one.

I would put my take on this and share with you all my thoughts on how & what is a life of an IPS.

Studying is just a part of it.

The civil services examinations are considered not only the toughest in Indian competitive…

10 things to do in Kodaikanal

There is something about rains and open spaces that make me a little more than hilarious. And not only me, couple of others as well . 

Today, rains in Delhi bought back the festive cheer killing the week long SMOG clouding all around Delhi / NCR. As I am usually up for an early morning catch-up breakfast with a few special folks, we decided let's step out and drive away to a place far from the traffic snarls yet has a festive cheer.

The thought came to go to Kodaikanal

While you may think I am crazy and my rest of the gang mad but then this is how life should be - unplanned, unbiased and unimaginable yet positive . 




Known world over as the princess of hill stations, this place has made me fall in love all over again. My first thought on reaching here was, this can't be in India. 

This has to be a foreign location. Pristine surrounding, lovely people to talk to and spend time with and not to forget the bicycles that can be rented to take a ride or two around the famous Kodaikanal …

What if & What about

Every night when she tried to sleep, she thought of the 'what if's' in her life that lead to the 'what about's'..

What if tomorrow or the next moment she was dead..

What about the dreams and aspirations she wanted to fulfill..

What about the loved ones she fought an hour back..

What about her 'would be' husband and kids..

What about the life she ever imagined..

What about making it big..

What about the home for homeless cause she wanted to build all around..

What about the heartbreaks she went..

What about the travel she is yet to set foot upon..

What about the many thanks & apologies she owes to people..

What about her sweet kitten- Mando..

What about her family & friends..

As she was watching her favorite sitcom series she realized that one day she will not be around & yet there is so much to do. What she also thought was the time gone by, all these years, she was just basically waking up and sleeping down. In between, it was all air.
