Color Color Colorsu , Fall Colorsu

Its been a while since I last blogged(bugged ;) ). Well, u know what I would be saying, so better not say it :D Even in this busy schedule one thing doesn't go unnoticed. Well yea, it is the fall colors. You must be aware of the starting scene of the movie "Mohabattein", those brown leaves fallin' in slow motion... that is exactly what I see everyday when I walk from my apartment to department. Just can't capture that beauty on a photograph. On one side, you feel so good that it is such a picturesque view, but on the other side, you feel so sorry that this beauty will be wiped out within no time :(. There is nothing more special than walking in a winter day, looking at the grey sky n brown leaves n dreaming about California by humming the Perfect song for the perfect setting. It is none other than "California Dreaming" by "Mamas and the Papas". This song was also used as a soundtrack in one of my alltime fav movie "Forrest Gump".

Film Actor Ramesh on phone!!!

"naanu Ramesh, USA inda"

Yesterday nite @ 8:30PM i got a phone call from Sridhar saying that he would me meeting Film Actor Ramesh (in California) in 30min and he also asked me to see if I could try to stream it LIVE in our Kannada Kasturi 24/7 Radio station. The deal was I will set up the live feed from my laptop to our radio mainstream n Ramesh will talk to our radio listeners. I got everything setup for streaming in a very short *really short* span of time (thanx to praveen for helping me in testing it) and I even installed VOIP Buster to make a phone call from my PC so that I could stream my soundcard output to the radio. All set up n i just called up n Sridhar asked me to talk to Ramesh. For a second I was like MAAAAANNNN, i'm blank.. I went into a shock. Ramesh took the phone and
RAMESH: HI!! naanu Ramesh USA inda
Neo a.k.a Manjesh: namskara Ramesh sir, hEgideera?
Ramesh: naanu bombat
Neo: hEge naDitide nimma america concertgaLu
Ramesh: tumba chennagi naDitide
Neo: nimma hosa chalana chitra "Rama Shama Bhaama" hEge naDitide
Ramesh: Rama Shama Bhaama innu release aagilla alva
Neo: *nagutta* houdu... release aagilla gottu... naanu ee chitrada pubicity bagge keLtidde. tumba jOraagi naDitirbekalva
Ramesh: *nagutta* haa houdu houdu... Rama Shama Bhaama chitrada pubilicity tumba chennagide. neevellarU ee chitravanna nOdi prOtsaahisabEku. namage tumba kutoohala ide nimma reaction hEgirutte anta.
Neo: nammellara prOtsaaha yaavagalU iddE irutte sir
Ramesh: thank you thank you
Neo: eevaga namma Internet radio station 24hrs online service ide, eevaga saakashtu online listeners saha neevu maataDtiruvudanna LIVEaagi keLtaa idaare
Ramesh: oh houda
Neo: avarigaagi neevu ondu message heLbeku anta naavu keLkoLtaa ideevi
Ramesh: Kannada gella Ramesh maaDuva namaskaragaLu....
*keek*----line disconnects

I felt so bad that I missed the most interesting part. I got really angry @ VOIP Buster software. Atleast, I was happy that I almost made it possible in the short span of time, working with 10different windows on my laptop ;)

*This was the first ever LIVE conversation in our radio station*. Now we know the pitfalls n next time, we know what to do to take care of it;)

PS: Ramesh is currently in USA for "Kannada Manoranjani" program to be performed in many big cities in USA. For details visit:

Call out Gouranga be happy

"Call out Gouranga be happy!!!
Gouranga Gouranga Gouranga ....
That which brings the highest happiness!!"

this is the message that I got yesterday from some unknown person called Neateye ( ). I was so perplexed that I ended up searching for it on google and came to know that it is kinda spam. Its not an ordinary spam, it somehow sneaks into your inbox bypassing all the spam blockers. What's more interesting is the message. Somewhere on the web, Gouranga was mentioned to be a sanskrit mantra meaning "happiness".

Any thoughts/explainations?

iPod Nano - Sneak Peek

All you music freaks must be eagerly waiting to see what iPod Nano has to offer. I did get an oppurtunity to have a look at it in our university electronics store and here is my view on it.

1. No doubt, iPod nano is ultra light weight, compact and looks cool.
2. Cost wise $250 for a 4Gig nano (and $200 for 2Gig nano) seems to be reasonable considering the improvements with respect to looks from iPod mini to iPod nano.
3. iPod nano comes with a color display.
4. Another major addition is that you can store and view photos.
5. Everything else is the similar to iPod mini.

On the other hand,
1. iPod nano is a flash based mp3 player. One major advantage of using flash for storage would obviously be the size of it, which they have utilized it properly. However, Apple claim that nano gives 14hrs battery life which I feel was pretty less for a flash based mp3 player because of the fact that it has a color LCD screen. Hope they can improvise on that cuz battery life is very crucial for an mp3 player.
2. Technology wise I feel iPod doesn't want to provide built-in FM tuners and voice recoder features to keep their accessory sales going strong. Though it is a very good strategy for now, it may lose out to its competitors who provide all-in-one mp3 players for much lower price if they come up with products in size smaller like iPod nano.
3. I feel the height of this product should be reduced by a small amout to make it look even better.

Now what about SONY's walkman?
Sony will be launching their oval shaped flash based mp3 players as an answer to iPod nano sometime in november this year. Though its too early to compare these two products, I feel once again it is too late for Sony to launch their products and it is losing its customers in this fast track market :( Will it continue to happen like this or will Sony change their strategies?..only time should answer this question.

But right now, all I can say is that "ipod Nano should be a perfect gift item for your near and dear ones...go...get one n gift one"

Clouds play hide n seek

after a long long wait, finally the sky broke loose and there you go.... a thunderstorm.

We finished our midnight walmart shopping @ 2AM n everything was fine then. after abt n hour or so, it started lightening n there was a downpour. I thought it wud be fun n i have captured a small video clip of it. Here is the link to download it

My impression was that it wud rain like hell that day, but when i was in the balcony watching the rain, I cud see the clouds moving so fast and yea all the rain n thunder was over within 10min. n that left us yesterday in a hot sun with temperatures @ a soaring high of 100 F (equivalent to 38 deg C).

y'day nite again it started to thunder, but there was no rain.

lets see what will happen tonite (I am pretty sure it won't rain tonite either. anyone wanna take a bet? )

Today morning(9AM CST) the first thing that I did was to do find Enigma's real name. ree enigma, here is the deal, I give your name, and you give your b'day which shud be within the next 10days. So my dear friends, I hereby disclose my findings and Enigma's real name is (pls scroll down for answer)

Sexy Sonia - "I like it Sonia, I like it "

"I like it Sonia, I like it "
This is the new Mp3 player from Sony that i brought like 2weeks back n I haven't taken it off from the moment I got this. This is what i've gotta say when u have to make a choice between and iPod Shuffle and a Sony Network Mp3 Player.

Top 3 reasons to go for a Sony Network MP3 player (NW-507) over an Apple iPod Shuffle

1. Battery Life: iPod Shuffle gives your a battery life of mere 12hrs playtime. Sony player on the other hand give you 50 hours of playtime. + it has a turbo charge, means like if you charge it for 3mins, you can use it for 3hrs!!!

2. Display: iPod Shuffle doesn't have any song display. Sony has a 3 line Organic LED display which really make the product to be the first choice for looks. OLED display rox!!!

3. FM Tuner: iPod shuffle doesn't come with a built-in FM tuner. Sony has a built-in FM Tuner

Cost? 1Gig iPod Shuffle = $140
1G Sony NW507 = $200

Looks? No way you can compare a sexy looking silver faced sony player with a flat white iPod Shuffle. Sony Player Rox!!!

Saturday Surprise

On saturday, i called up vasanta's house and as usual i tried to play a prank and i was in for a total surprise. the conversation was something like this:

First time ever in US!!!

u know what... I visited a Health Center for the first time after coming to USA. Its like i had some problem with my shoulders, which was diagonsed to be because of bowling action and stress which results from sitting for long hours in from the computer. He prescribed some medicine and just for some 20tablets i had to shell out like $25, that really aggravated the pain :(

Lets hope i won't make it a habbit to visit that place often ;)

and also for the first time ever (*lol*) my orkut scrap book reached 100scraps... gettin' famous day by day huh :D

With less powers comes less responsibilities?

"With great powers, comes great responsiblities" - from the movie Spiderman.
It has been 1 year holding the Treasurer/webmaster position at the India Students Association in our university. Our term started off with a mere 43$ in the ISA account and today we have handed over nearly 2K(not in Rs :D) to the new ISA committee, inspite of spending on every possible event you can think of, thanx to all our committee members!!! But at the end of the day, I could not answer one simple question "What did you get by doing so much?" is it name? or fame? or satisfaction? or just waste of time?. Now, all I can say is that i'm done with it :)

Same day i've quit as Admin @ forum. i've achieved what I wanted before I quit. I know it was a harsh decision. anywayz... is now in a position to maintain its #1 position even without me ;) gr8 going!!! Now its like you know, i need not have really worry about anything.. relaxed, calm, no worries, no barriers, no rules!!! and my mind is like a freshly formatted Hard disk.

oh I forgot... what do you think? "with less powers, comes less responsibilities?"

Morning Raga

If you think that you are fed up listening to Country/Hip-Hop/Rock/Trance music, why don't you try a Fusion album? Recently, I came across one such album "Morning Raga" which is a classical fusion(Thanks to Praveen). Morning Raga is a hindi movie released in the year 2004, though I haven't seen that movie till now, tell you what, the songs in this movie are pretty cool. The songs that I liked the most in this album are
1. Jagadodharana - Bombay Jayashree
2. Thaye yeshode - Sudha Raghunathan & Rajini ramakrishnan
3. Mathey - Sudha Raghunathan & Kalyani Menon
4. Samaja varagamana - Gayathri

If you wanna listen to these songs, you can find it on or use this link
PS: this link works for only 7days and there is also a limit of 25downloads.

If this album has influenced a person like me who is always behind hip-hop/R&B/Techno/Rock, then you can know for yourself the potential this album has got.
Why wait?? Headphone on, full volume n enjoy the Morning Raga!!!

Spring 2005 Farewell

At last, all the exams are over for this semester n now its time to party!!!! Yesterday nite there was a get-together/potluck dinner @ Devanand Maski's house and it was nice to meet everyone. Food was amazing!!! Then went to 519 Laramie for a KEG party(no use for me though) as Viskan n Thomas graduated today(n Vikram too). Then came home and at 12AM, we had this Spring 2005 Farewell cake cut and a 2hr long discussion followed that , discussing about the good and bad things that happened during the semester.
During the discussion, nidhi asked for pepsi n i gave this 2ltr sealed bottle n it just slipped n fell on the ground. When I opened that bottle , I felt like "i was a winner"... lol... it was like opening a champaign bottle, within no time all that place was filled with pepsi n i am such a dumb a*s that i am sitting there holding it n enjoying the way it was spilling out. It was not just the hall, even in the kitchen i am just holding it n the floor was like eeeer sticky sticky. My dress was a total mess. If u wanna have a good look at the pple behind this scene, just see the photo below ;)

Welcome Summer 2005!!!!!

pple who messed up our apt are standing there n enjoying what happened. Just have a look at that guys pant n shirt... oh man... totally messed up ;) Posted by Hello

Manji gettin' upgraded with new cellphone!!!

"T-Mobile inda ee Manji mobile aagtidaane, inna neevu?" - this is similar to the one in which actor Srinath was saying for JTM long time ago.

Y'day nite I placed an order for T-mobile 600min/month with Unltd weekends n nights plan with Nokia 3220 cellphone. Thought 3220 is not that gr8 interms of looks, I am gettin' all the features that I wanted like.. its a TriBand phone with IR port, light weight, SpeakerPhone n on top of that its pretty cheap n the total cost will turn out to be that i'll get back $100. I'd say its Perfect for pple whose bank balance is hovering around two-digits n single-digits (chukles ).

See these links for more info on the cellphone

My other Options were
Samsung E715 & Nokia 6600. E715 was pretty gud with lotsa good looking features which i don't use at all.. but it didn't have the essential features that i wanted n i had to stick with 3220. Nokia 6600 was my first option earlier, but then that phone was not available currently + it was a bit expensive as well.

Will write a detailed review on Nokia3220 once I get it. till then

The 4-Variable IQ Test

Your brain: 60% interpersonal,
160% visual,
60% verbal,
and 120% mathematical!

Congratulations on being 400% smart! Actually, on my test, everyone is. The above score breaks down what kind of thinking you most enjoy
doing. A score above 100% means you use that kind of thinking more than
average, and a score below 100% means you use it less. It says nothing
about how good you are at any one, just how interested you are in each, relatively. A substantial difference in scores between two people means, conclusively, that they are different kinds of thinkers.

Matching Summary: Each of us has different tastes. Still, I offer the following advice, which I think is obvious:

  1. Don't date someone if your interpersonal percentages differ by more than 80%.
  2. Don't be friends with someone if your verbal percentages differ by more than 100%.
  3. Don't have sex with someone if their math percentage is over 200%.

My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:
free online datingfree online dating
You scored higher than 65% on interpersonal
free online datingfree online dating
You scored higher than 92% on visual
free online datingfree online dating
You scored higher than 65% on verbal

You scored higher than 74% on mathematical

Lakshmi Krupe

It was a day of surprise for me. Went to the office in the morning as usual n after sometime the Office Lady came and gave me a sheet of paper for signature n I was shocked to see that it was a paper related to change of Salary... u know what, I got a 20%hike in my salary today... ehe aha (as in Crazy Kernel).

Few days back RJ Shruthi Prakash from World Space Sparsha Satellite Radio contacted me n it was nice talking to her. :)

Birthday Time!!!!

Happy Birthday to u Praveena!!!! Hope u r havin' fun. Its ur day, enjoy it to the max.

Not only that, it was my cousin Rahul's Birthday on 16th April!!! Things were gettin' so busy that I cudn't even call him up to wish on this b'day. Don't worry dude, ur gifts n chocolates r on the way n will be in home pretty soon ;)

So finally we successfully accomplished the Food Fest 2005 , which was the last event from our India Students Association committee. It was a huuuge success... The event was scheduled from 6-9PM on 16th April, n we had printed like 450coupons. But it turned to be that we sold almost 1000 coupons n the food was over within a matter of an hour and a half. The worst part was that there were some more pple who were going to each n every stall to see if something is left :)) I had made BANGALORE SPL BISI BELE BATH and it was over within 45min ;) All the profits will go to the Tsunami Relief Fund. As I am the Treasurer of ISA, I've become richer :D n will show u the balance sheet pretty soon. The next ISA committee will take charge from the end of this semester.
PS: pls don't forget to have a look at the Food Fest 2005 Pics :) (chix, next time ;) )

Long time no see

lol.... thatz the question you should be asking me :) nothing gr8 happening except the fact that my bank balance is hitting 2digit numbers :D... thanx to the semester fee which I had to pay this week.

The best part is that we have got our tickets confirmed to go to NY over the memorial day weekend.

Over the last few days I haven't changed my Winamp Playlist n there are only two albums in it.
1. Autograph Please
2. Jogi
The two class songs are the Ello jogappa ninna aramane and Chellidaro malligeya remixes and both albums are too gud with some gud peppy numbers and very good slow songs as well. For those of you who haven't heard good music for quite some time, I strongly recommend you to listen to them.

You can listen to these songs at

Pls don't forget to leave your comments on these two albums!!!

Colorful Colorado

So finally we completed the Colorado Trip successfully!!! It was 3days of fun n enjoyment, though weather played a spoilsport on the last day. We visited
- Denver
- Garden of the Gods
- Pikes Peak
- Cave of the Winds &
- Royal Gorge

I will be uploading some pics pretty soon. Actually I feel lucky.. u know why? we had actually lost all the 1100 photographs which was on the 512MB card due to some problem. After coming back from the trip, I searched n searched n was finally able to use one s/w (which had to be cracked) to retrieve all the data. It took a long time, but it was worth the wait. Photos are too gud.

Hey today is another gr8 day.... know why? cuz its our Saapad Rama, Ajay's last Bachelor b'day n also a silver jubilee. huTTu habbada shubashayagaLu mamu....

Spring Break has started!!!

Spring break has already started for us and still we haven't finalised where we are heading to. There were(and still are) so many twist n turns to our scheduled Roadtrip. From Colorado, Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Dallas, Omaha n St. Louis, now we are back to square one and have decided to Colorado this wednesday no matter what. All of a sudden weather is so sick... its rainy :(

But all these confusions didn't stop me to watch two very good movies:
1. Forrest Gump
2. Se7en
I liked the movie Forrest Gump very much. For those of you who haven't seen this movie, please do it :)

Not only that, we even played Cricket in front of our apartment complex. The games were well poised and we did win the series 2-1. Well, thanx to me :D for scoring highest runs in both the matches we won, n getting out for just 1 in the match we lost :( )

Y'day nite we got another oppurtunity to have a b'day cake... it was Subredu Das's b'day. (yaara b'day aadre namagenu, nanage cake siktu ashte bekaagirodu :D )

Lack of Communication leads to bad haircut :(

Yesterday I was so depressed with my haircut. Just a few days back I had uploaded a pic with my new hairstyle. I wanted to have a haircut and when I went to that saloon, I told him to short on the sides n medium at front n top. bugger he has cut my hair short from all sides :(( 15 bux for a sloppy haircut, i have decided not to go for an haircut for atleast next 4months n get back my new hairstyle. The worst part is that the spring break is just around the corner :(

Today I came to know that our Ajay Kumar, popularly called as SaapaD Rama, quit Aspire Technologies, Mysore n now he has joined HP developement centre, Bangalore. 3.8K PA ante sambaLa :D Congraats on your new job dude!!!!

Can u tell me whatz there in the picture and what I wanted to capture? Can u see a small patch of sun shade rite at the centre of the pic. Captured at 10x optical zoom and Image Stabilization ON and autozoom ON. Call it a modern Photography ;) Posted by Hello

Thats a 2ltr Pepsi bottle worth $1 captured using a canon cutie worth 320$ making full use of the available 10x optical zoom :) Posted by Hello

Guess whose is in that picture???? For all of you who told that it was me, bingo... u r rite :) Thatz me inside my laptop with my NEW hairstyle :) btw how did i managed to take this pic :P ... feedback pls Posted by Hello

eeeehaaaaaa got my new Digital Camera!!!

Finally I got my new digital camera, Canon S1-IS, last weekend followed by a 512MB Compact Flash card. I am trying to experiment with it and yea some of the features are really kewl n worth the bux. A combination of 10x optical zoom and Image stabilization is making me feel that there is no real skill required to take some ultimate pics. It also has an option to take video upto 1hr, however, with the 512 MB card I can record upto 45min video, which should be okay for timebeing. Later sometime(when I get ample $$) I can upgrade to a 1-2GB CF card. I am still having some problem adjusting to the auto zoom mode :( but it is infact a really cool feature. Also over the next couple of days I'll post a mindblowing 360 degree view of our apartment. Chk my next blog for a couple of pix.

Today I had an open-book test. Didn't do gud :( hopefully I can make up for that in the other take-home part which is due wednesday :D .

Now coming back to the b'day mania, here is the list for this week :)
Mar 14th - Indumathi (Cousin Sister)
Mar 16th - Arvind Sesha (best buddy)
Mar 17th - Jeevan PV (Cousin Brother)
Wish you all a very happy b'day!!!! but the worst part is that all of them are in b'lore n I will be missin' b'day cake from all three of'em :(

Today I watched American Pie - 2 :D.... chamak movie ;)

over n out.

Studies at Library

Had to hurry up for work today, as I didn't go for work y'day. When I went there, I found that my boss himself wasn't there. Fun time!!!! Thought I will study for some time, but somehow it didn't happen. Later I had a class at 2:30 and then wen't home. Thought I will watch a movie, but my roomies were already watching a movie... so I thought lemme watch it someother day n I started cooking pretty early(cooked the same old Sambar n scrambled egg). Then I came to Library to study... yea made some steady progress :) Then wen't home to have dinner n came back to library once again. Donno why, I was studying for sometime, but now I am feeling really sleepy :( (its just 11:20).

cya l8r fellas

Successful Tutor :)

Today, I couldn't go to office as I had to take my friends for driving test. Yes!!!! both of them cleared the driving test :) Congrats guys!!!! Then we all went to Chipotle to have lunch( going there after a span of 1yr or so).

In the 733 Lab, we were trying to play with a Card Reader. Though it was fun, the end result was bad, we couldn't retrieve the data on the card.. guess there is some problem with the card reader :( Need to check with another card reader next week :)

My best buddy has sent me a Gruhapravesham invitation.... congraats Arthi!!!!! Finally got what you always wanted to own one . Hey thnx for sending me the pix of ur new house in advance. Arthi used to live very close to my house, but now she is relocating to a far off place (i guess 20min, say 15min for me :D , from my house now :( ) . Hey arthi, don't forget to send me the pix of gruhapravesham as well. waitin' for it :)

Bharath Kumar (a.k.a Baari ) has purchased a new cell phone, who is currently in Houston TX working for Schlumbeger from Infy. The best part was, he called me up tonite and we spoke for about 30min and only when I hung up, I realised that I forgot to take his cellphone number :D

Hey u know what, today I got hold of the movie "Tarle Nan Maga" which I was trying to trace from a long long time. Now I am merging all the bits and do a divx conversion so that I can put it up on the forum for everyone to download :)

Finished an assignment just now(which was due tomorrow :D). Going to have some gud sleep. =;

Who am I: Driving tutor or Troubleshooter?

Today I got a new assignment... guess what.... I went with couple of my friends in a car, not as a driver, but as a tutor to help them get a Drivers License tomorrow. Thought them for about 3-4hrs and hopefully they will clear the driving test n help keep up my name :D Tomorrow again i've gotta give them a final round of training just before the actual test. Wish them Gud Luck!!! :) All the pple whom i've thought driving have become gr8 drivers now ;) Donno why, but I can just keep traveling all day long.

Today i logged in to orkut just 3 times!!!! Hope I can improvise on that. Was searching(still am ) for something that I don't know....sometimes i feel like i am chasing a maayamruga....which I know i won't get, yet trying to be in the dreamworld.

Have you ever tried to teach computers to your mom who is a home maker? or have u ever tried to fix a computer problem in which u don't have adequate support. Though I was into troubleshooting right from my bachelors, I had left it for quite sometime, but I donno why this thing still haunts me, even in this country of technology. Well, today I encountered the latter one. There was a problem with the gal next door's comp. I don't wanna go into the details, but the bottomline was I JUST CUDN'T INSTALL XOSL on her laptop :(( There was absolutely no support to get the MS DOS bootable for Win XP. That goes to show how much Win XP supports(protects) DOS. One bootable CD cud have made my life whole lot simpler. Really crazy... in simple words "TROUBLE SHOOTING SUX" The best part was I accidentally screwed up one of her partitions :P.... gimme a break!!!

Unexpected B'day cake

Y'day nite, just b4 sleeping, i got an oppurtunity to eat chocolate cake!!!! It was one of our Apartment Block mate's B'day... (whose father what goes) :)

Today, I finally completed the NAANU T-shirt design which I wanted to do it for a long long time now. Wanna see it? Nah.. no way... I will get it printed on a t-shirt n then I will show it to everyone :)

Donno how lucky was I today financially, that I got to see atleast 10cheques moving around me of which 5 of them were for me ;) until I realised that it was already 1st of March n I had to pay this month rent :( Any donations around??? :D

I was trying to burn a CD on my laptop and the burn process used to fail after some time(this is not the first time it has happenend). Then I wanted to try the Compaq chat support, and so did I. I mean, i wasn't impressed with the chat support at all. sux big time :( Thought I would get a replacement, but not yet :) I am pretty sure this writer is counting its days (to reach sivana paada). Who cares, when i've got 3yrs replacement insurance with me for my laptop ;)

To be honest with you, though Orkut is such a huge community, it sux bigtime as it takes such a long time to display pages. I am planning on reducing the number of visits I make to orkut daily. I am fed up seeing the same old "BAD SERVER: NO DONUT FOR U" msg :(

Name for my blog

today I named by blog as "TRANSIT ". I always feel life is an adventurous journey... u never know what will happen next (like a cycle fella coming in front of a maruti 800 :D ).... so be ready to face the unexpected. In this travel, i'm glad that you've stopped by for a while to have a look at my blog... hence the term "Transit".

I got the 50photo prints that i had ordered last week from i'd say the quality is not that gr8... not even worth 19c per photo.

SLV, who made my day. U know, today for the first time in the history of my stay at K-State, i borrowed a book from library. The best part was that I didn't know it worked. I went to the reception desk and she sent me to some other place. There again she said there is an online catalog by which u can find the book u want. Was pretty gud at exploring what was on the net, and I finally found one book available (ofcourse not exactly the one that I wanted... but it was pretty close). On the catalog it just said the name " Handwriting analysis: .. " and next to it there was a number which read "Call Number: BF891 .B833 1966".... now what does that suppose to mean? Then at the end of the floor there was a site map (call it a library map ?) which said i need to go to 4th floor. I went to see whole lotsa stacks n racks of books, had to walk half a mile n search for nearly 20min to find that book. Trust me, this library is huuuuuuge. To make sure that the time I spent was worthwhile, i've read two chapter in that book ;)

Today evening we went to shopping mall walking almost 1.5miles only to find out that it was closed for the day for maintenance :( Was really pissed, but u know what, we need to see things differently (thnx to someone ;) ) and we said, we were out for a evening week and we kept walking and we just found shopping mall and that too we found out the timings of that mall... Not only that, we also saw the tallest building in our town :) U see it was worthwhile ;)

Thatz it for now.... gud nite.
