One year, I decided to buy my mother-in-law a cemetery plot as a Christmas gift...

The next year, I didn't buy her a gift.

When she asked me why, I replied,

"Well, you still haven't used the gift I bought you last year!"

And that's how the fight started....


My wife and I were watching Kaun Banega Karorepati, while we were in bed.

I turned to her and said, 'Do you want to make love?'

'No,' she answered.

I then said, 'Is that your final answer?'

My favorite android applications

I was planning for this blog entry for really a long time. Thanks to Tony, I have finally overcome my laziness and decided to write this.

Here is the list of apps on my android phone. Most of them are my favorite Android apps, which I use on regular basis (unless mentioned otherwise) Most of the applications are free (as in free beer, not necessarily free as in freedom) However, I have bought a few paid applications as well.



Warren Buffett's financial advice

  • Rule No. 1: Never lose money. Rule no. 2: Never forget Rule No. 1.
  • You leave yourself an enormous margin of safety. You build a bridge that 30,000-pound trucks can go across and then you drive 10,000-pound trucks across it. That is the way I like to go across bridges.
  • It's far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price.
  • You only have to do a very few things right in your life so long as you don't do too many things wrong.

रिस्क मॅनेजमेंट

सध्या परिस्थिती अतिशय बिकट आहे. कधीही कोणाचीही नोकरी जाऊ शकते. तसं  म्हटलं तर अमेरिकेत ही स्थिति खूप पूर्वीपासूनच आहे. भारतात असा अनुभव फार लोकाना येत नसे म्हणून स्थिति इतकी गंभीर न्हवती, हाच काय तो फरक. मी लार्सेन एंड टुब्रो कंपनीत काम करत होतो त्यानंतर काही वर्षातच माझ्याच डिपार्टमेन्ट मध्ये खूप लोकाना हाकलण्यात आले, हे माझ्या बघण्यात आहे. माझ्या नशीबाने फार पूर्वीच सावध करण्यात आले होते, म्हणून मी वाचलो.
