'Moving' on the tunes of PlayStation

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of PlayStation MOVE. All opinions are 100% mine.

Have you heard of the PlayStation Move yet? It is the new interactive gaming system that PlayStation has come out with. You have a controller that's movement is picked up from a motion sensing device in front of the game console, and that is how you play! You move and your player movement is just like yours..! How cool is that?!

Imagine how much more fun family night could be when you are beating your siblings by playing Brunswick Pro Bowling or showing off your dance moves in Dance Dance Revolution®! With a wide selection of games including sports, action, party, family, and shooters and new ones launching all the time, there is something for everyone. The games are addictive and fun and the outcome of every move is all under your control.

Plus, if you currently have a PlayStation®3 system, it can easily be turned into a MOVE. Purchase a MOVE bundle package for only $99 and convert your current PlayStation®3 into a motion gaming console. So, no need buying the complete console, just a MOVE bundle package would do it.

Sony’s PlayStation®3 is undeniably popular and with the MOVE, they have created a benchmark which would be hard to achieve for others. Be it the technology or the comfort or even design, Move has surely people moving on its tunes..!

Wikipedia Meetup

Wikipedia is a vital, free-knowledge project used by millions of people all over the world, including in India. This ubiquitous resource includes millions of articles and covers myriad topics about India and its culture.
Although Wikipedia is an indispensable resource for millions, little is known about how this online encyclopedia is written and who it is written by.

This Sunday, October 31 at 6:30pm, anyone who is interested in learning more about this global public resource is invited to “Meet the Movement:” a talk with Jimmy Wales and members of the Wikimedia community in India. This talk is an opportunity to learn more about how Wikipedia works and why
participation from the people of India is integral to Wikimedia’s global free-knowledge movement.

Jimmy Wales, the iconic leader, who founded Wikipedia in 2001, will give a public talk about the history of Wikipedia and what the free knowledge movement means to India. For instance, 94 percent of page views from India are for the English Wikipedia, rather than Indic languages. What does that mean about the importance of Wikipedia in India and the needs of Indian users? After his talk, Wales will be joined by members of Wikimedia India, as well as Wikimedia Foundation Board member, Bishakha Datta, for a 30
minute open question and answer session with the audience.

Date: Sunday October 31
Time: 6.30 pm
Venue: Sophia Bhabha Hall, Sophia College campus, Bhulabhai Desai
Road, Breach Candy, Mumbai 400026

This talk is open to the public on a first-come-first-seated basis.

AIDS: The Untold Story

We should not miss even a single moment, expressing our love to our beloved ones...
Recently, I was checking the mails, when came across this beautifully written story. And can't resist the temptation to share it with the world. So here it is.

The alarm tore apart the silence in the room; starting off smoothly, slowly and steadily gaining pace and sound. The shade of a hand, rose in the darkness and started crawling in the surface; searching for something and in a few seconds it got hold of the alarm clock and killed the already loud tone. Hesitantly a figure rose on its knees, it was that of a nicely built man; he looked all around in the dim light, as if searching for something and switched on the lights by the bed side. The room was not as messed up as a young man’s, a bachelor’s room. There were quite a lot of books in the table and some clothes hung on his chair, the shelf was closed down and the room was pretty empty but for the table, the mattress, the study table and chair.

He opened the laptop lid and starred to the background wallpaper for a few seconds and opened the VOIP calling software in his laptop, and dialed a number from the contacts.

Tringg….Tringgg…Tringg…..Tringg…..
Hello Mamma…
Albertttt!!!..... You are so on time again, right at two! Where are you now baby?
I am way far off, Mamma… (Far away from you he whispered)…
Far?? So what time is it over there?
Time..? I just woke up now Mamma…
Why do you sound different? Have you caught cold or cough Alby?
No Mamma…I am fine…
You said far, are you in the Siberians? Should be pretty cold out there…
No Mamma…it’s not the cold! I said… I am fine…
Alby, it’s been three years now, when are you visiting me?
Soon Mamma, I gotta go now, next week…Mamma…
Oh… So soon again!! Love you Alby…
You to Mamma…take care!

Its all about celebrating your life..!

This is your life.
Years go by and nothing is as you imagined it would be.

Hope is exquisite, and at times, exquisitely disappointing. The love you always thought was love is shadowy and elusive. Dreams you dare to dream feel like wide-open doors to giant letdowns.

Teetering between the person you were, and the person you are becoming...
And this, all this in-between is your life. It is you.

You who is still wandering to know why he is here.
You who still looks for the reason for his existence.
You who still wanna know why it all happened to him.
You who still asks God, Why me??
You who still cries for all those missed opportunities.
You who is not satisfied and says, I deserved better..

CWG 2010: Better than what People had made it look

So, Delhi 2010 begins tomorrow. The XIX Common Wealth Games would be starting from tomorrow  in Delhi, India. Enough has already been said about its failures, about its dirty toilets, about missed deadlines etc. etc.

But what remained hidden was hard work of thousands of people who worked day and night to have these games, to have the best ever games, to make India proud and make world stand up and notice India. There have been mistakes, it could have been handled better, but remember India is hosting games of such high level for the first time. There has to be hiccups, though there have been more, but still a lot of good work has happened.



This is the time to stand and notice the good work.
This is the time to support all those who have made this happen.
This is the time to cheer for the games, for the athletes.
This is the time to come out as one and feel proud.
This is the time to say out loud,

COME OUT AND PLAY!!
