Python 357: A short film

I have always felt an affinity towards film and books. And I grab any chance I get to witness a fine movie or to read a good book. So, when a friend recommended me PYTHON357 a short film by Rushabh Shah, I checked it out. And was amazed to see such a nice film.

LG DoublePlay: Dual-Screen, Split-Keyboard

This post brought to you by LG DoublePlay™. All opinions are 100% mine.

LG officially announced LG DoublePlay™, a unique Android 2.3 handset with dual touchscreens and split QWERTY. Here's the scoop: the DoublePlay's powered by a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU and offers a 5MP rear-facing camera capable of capturing 720p HD video.

Where it gets interesting, however, is in the DoublePlay's design -- it uses a 3.5-inch display on top, sliding out to reveal a 2-inch internal screen sandwiched in between both halves of the keyboard. As it turns out, both screens can be used separately or in tandem with each other, depending on your needs. It is available exclusively through T-Mobile, so if that's your carrier it's something to consider.

Other features include:

  • multi-tasking abilities to surf the net, update facebook, check email, and/or text all at the same time!
  • 5 mega pixel camera with LED Flash
  • 720p HD video recorder
  • many texting options including Cloud Text or Group Texting
  • Access to Android Market and Apps
  • Dual capacitive touch screens for multi-taskers and social networkers like me!

Personally, I spend a lot of time messaging and on social networking. And if I had this amazing piece of hardware, it would have surely made my life smooth. It would also be an interesting way to communicate with all my relatives and with no discomfort of writing text on touch screen as keyboard is there too..!

I'd love for y'all to leave comments and let me know how many hours y'all spend texting, engaging via your social networks, and if you think a phone such as this would be useful for you.

A lot can happen over a coffee: A Love story

“Just love you so so much”
“Love you too my sweetheart” she said holding my hand.
I was getting lost in her eyes and a song started to play in the background,
“And now that your gone, just wanna be with You”                               

Oops wrong timing. No One’s gone anywhere Its  just enrique’s song from set as my ringtone. What a vociferous mum n three snoozed alarm couldn’t do, a ringing mobile did pretty well in the realm of waking up the prince from his slumber.  It was a dream. Damn…!!!

With one eye closed and the other too half open, looked at the mobile screen to see an unknown number calling. Somehow against my inner motivation to reject the call, managed to pick up just to see who was the lucky chap to get into my hit list today?
The only thing that could give you more warmth than a quilt in the great Delhi winter is a girl in your arms. And I certainly wasn’t having one. So I needed some payback.

Surprisingly a girl from other side spoke
“Hello, is it Ashu?”
“Yes .Whose  it?”
“Gud morning Ashu. Snigdha this side.”
“Sorry I don’t want any credit cards, I told you . I just love it as cash. No cards please.”
“Excuse me??” she said perplexed..
“What? Don’t you people at the bank sleep? And why disturb people at such early hours?”
“Do you even realize whom you are talking to weirdo? I am snigdha, sonakshi’s friend. Remember sonakshi?” she said agitated.

SONAKSHI.  That was the name that brought me back to my senses.

“I am really sorry. Actually I was half asleep. Moreover a girl with similar name as yours has been pestering me with credit card offers for last two days . So…..”, I lied.

‘It’s okay” she replied

“So what made you call me such early, everything fine??” I asked..
“Yup almost.”
“Almost ??”
“Tell me something. Are you free today??” She asked.

“Sort of. But why?” I replied.

That “sort of “meant, I had to to drop my sis to school, then have a 3 hour tuition, had to go shopping with mum for cousin’s wedding, had to attend a friend’s birthday party, etc etc etc.

“Can you come to meet us today?”
“What happened??”

Next voice from other side was Sonakshi herself.

As a matter of fact, sonakshi is a school friend of mine, a very close friend I must say. And in my confession mode I would say, I sort of liked her, in reticence though. Just couldn’t ever gather the courage to tell her. Her astonishing charm and entice always stood in the way. She was a sure shot 8 pointer on our “Rate-The-Looks” scale (her highness Katrina Kaif being the benchmark with 10 on 10). And me, being modest would say, could manage to get passing marks if the observer was lenient. However strong and true your feelings might be for your special one but in the end looks do matter.

“HI Ashu..”, sonakshi spoke in case u forget where we were.
“Hey, how are you?? Everything fine dear??” I asked
“Can you come to meet me today?”
A question in reply to a question meant something was wrong. She sounded low. Her usual sweet voice had a tone of sadness in it. Audible sobs followed after every two words.

“What happened??” I enquired.
Snigdha snatched away the phone from her.
“Are you coming??” Again a question in reply to a question. Girls. I tell you, they would never give you the answers.
“Yes, of course. But for heaven sake tell me what happened??”

“Meet us at Rajiv Chowk metro station at 8.30 .Will tell you everything there”
“But…But….but..” and she hung up. Can't these girls listen to us, just for once?
