When he fell in love...

I had been wanting to write a story for a while now. And today I like to start with it. It would be published in frequent posts (only if I manage to complete it.).

So here is the first part of, When He Fell In Love...
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear R,

I miss you a lot today. I miss those wonderful days we spent together. I miss the fun we had teasing each other. I miss the games we used to play in your garden. It's been 3 long years since I've seen you and there's a lot that I had learn about myself and our relation in this gap.

In these 3 years, I had met many people. I had seen a bigger world. There were all kinds of people, some good, some bad. There were also people who cared a lot for me. But all along, I felt like a loner.

How to Type Indian Rupee Symbol

We all know Indian Rupee has officially got its symbol. But it is not yet available on the keyboards and thus preventing it to be used by anyone. And our government has said, it would take more than a year for the symbol to become commercially available. And thus a big setback for all of those who were counting on to use it.

But not to worry. Manglore based, Foradian Technologies Pvt. Ltd. has created a font called Rupee_Foradian. It can be downloaded from here and used for free.

How to Use it..??
  • After downloading the font, a .ttf file, copy it to your fonts folder, C:/Windows/Fonts
  • Open a word file, type the first character on the keyboard that is just below the escape button, ~ .
  • Select the character and apply the Rupee_Foradian font.
  • That's it. The Rupee symbol appears...!!

Here is a video that would help you -

Power of words

I was just browsing through my old mails and came across this short story. Thought it would be nice to share it with you guys...

A group of frogs were traveling through the woods, and two of them fell into a deep pit. When the other frogs saw how deep the pit was, they told the two frogs that they were as good as dead. The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump up out of the pit with all their might. The other frogs kept telling them to stop, that they were as good as dead. Finally, one of the frogs took heed to what the other frogs were saying and gave up. He fell down and died.

The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again, the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and just die. He jumped even harder and finally made it out.

Chicken Or Egg..??


It has been an age old question, what came first, Chicken or Egg..??
Chicken..?? Egg..?? Chicken.?? Egg..?? What..??
No one knows, it has only been only predictions and predictions. But only till now..!!

It’s true – British researchers have done a scientific experiment and discovered, conclusively, that the chicken came first. Hurray..!!! Finally the answer..!!

Rupee gets a symbol...!

India finally got a symbol for the Rupee on Thursday, denoting the strength of its economy, and joined a select club of countries whose currencies have a unique identity. The cabinet approved the symbol - an amalgam of the Devnagiri 'Ra' and the Roman capital 'R' without the stem and two parallel lines running at the top. The parallel lines symbolize the equal to sign.

With the gaining of the symbol, the Indian rupee joins the club of US dollar, British pound, European euro and Japanese yen that currently have their own symbols.

The symbol was designed by D Udaya Kumar, who is with the Department of Design at IIT Guwahati. Explaining the significance of the design, he said it is based on the Indian Tricolor.

"My design is based on the Tricolor with two lines at the top and white space in between. I wanted the symbol for the Rupee to represent the Indian flag," said Kumar.

Lets hope, with a new symbol Indian economy reaches new high..!!

Unveiling the symbol now..!!!
(Drum-roll..!!!)

I walk and walk...

Life is like a very very long road,
On which I have to walk,
And yes, I am walking,
Without any feelings,
But I am walking alone,
Without even my shadow,
My own Shadow left me long before,
Its strange but now we are not in touch,
Yeah I am still walking,
To reach at my destination,
But I am still walking alone..
