Do you remember

Do you remember, dear, the days so long ago when we were at school, and the chemistry lab where you and I worked over messy experiments and grew to know each other. Your family had just moved to our town; I learnt that your father came from a distinguished family and was a government official. My father was dead, and I lived with my mother in an unfashionable street. We let half our house, and my mother did fancy sewing for the well-to-do people in town. She did it proudly, with her head held high, but you did not know that. All you knew was that I was a dressmaker's son.


Man's best friend

I want my children to have a dog
Or may be two or three
They'll learn from them more easily
Than they will learn from me.

A dog will teach them how to love,
And have no grudge or hate
I'm not so good at that myself
But a dog will do it straight

I want my children to have a dog,
To be their pal and friend
So they may learn that friendship
Is faithful to the end.

There never yet has been a dog
That learned to double cross
Nor catered to you when you won
Then dropped you when you lost.


सचिनचे महाशतक

सचिनने शतक केले म्हणून त्याचे अभिनंदन.

मला क्रिकेटबद्दल फारसे काही माहीत नाही, म्हणून लेखात दिलेला दुवा बघितला आणि शोधताना रेकॉर्डचे स्थळ दिसले. त्यावरून मला पडलेले काही प्रश्न.

कसोटी सामन्यात व वन-डे सामन्यात सर्वाधिक धावा म्हणून सचिन सर्वप्रथम स्थानावर आहे.
तसेच सर्वाधिक शतके म्हणून सुध्दा सचिन पहिला आहे आणि त्याची कारकीर्द १९८९ पासून सुरू झाली असे दिसते.



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.
