My Horrible Experience with Reliance GSM

Two-Three months back I bought a Nokia mobile phone and for that I was looking for a good mobile service provider. Although, since the very beginning I knew that in India Airtel provides much better service than any other service provider. But its call rates are much higher compared to others. So I thought why not try some other service provider. I had to choose between Vodafone and Reliance GSM. Then Reliance launched its Simply Reliance Scheme (5o-paise/minute scheme) and I bought its GSM sim card thinking that Reliance is also a big name and its GSM service may be better, who knows?

But my experience with Reliance GSM was really horrible and annoying. I live in the heart of the city and my mobile would show “No Network Coverage” most of the time. Whenever at home or indoors I could neither make a call nor able to receive any call. As poor network was not enough the problem of frequent call-drop added to my woes. I could never complete a conversation on phone. It was really frustrating and I felt like cheated by such a Big Business name. Within one month of such horrible experience I got fed up with the Reliance and I instantly bought a new Airtel connection without any second thought, saying good-bye to Reliance forever.

How Am I Supposed To Live Without You - Michael Bolton

Since 4-5 days I love listening to the following song by Michael Bolton. Although, I’ve been listening to this since years, I don’t know why I like to listen to this song now-a-days so much. May be, it reflects my feelings to a certain extent.

How Am I Supposed To Live Without You - Michael Bolton

I could hardly believe it when I heard the news today
I had to come and get it straight from you
They said you were leaving, someone swept your heart away
From the look upon your face I see it's true
So tell me all about it, tell me 'bout the plans you're makin'
Then tell me one thing more before I go
Tell me how am I supposed to live without you
Now that I've been lovin' you so long
 
How am I supposed to live without you
And how am I supposed to carry on
When all that I've been livin' for is gone
 
Didn't come here for cryin', didn't come here to break down
It's just a dream of mine is comin' to an end
How can I blame you when I built my world around
The hope that one day we'd be so much more than friends
And I don't wanna know the price I'm gonna pay for dreamin'
Even now, it's more than I can take
Tell me how am I supposed to live without you
Now that I've been lovin' you so long
 
How am I supposed to live without you
And how am I supposed to carry on
When all that I've been livin' for is gone
And I don't wanna know the price I'm gonna pay for dreamin'
Now that your dream has come true
Tell me how am I supposed to live without you
Now that I've been loving you so long
 
How am I supposed to live without you
And how am I supposed to carry on
All that I've been livin' for is gone.

Adverse Effects of Smoking & Chewing Tobacco on Young People

Many young people today have an "invincibility complex," or the belief that they cannot be harmed by their actions. Consequently, such people don’t care about the harmful effects that can have adverse effects on their health.
While they may be fully aware of harmful effects of consuming tobacco, this does not stop the rise in young people smoking. It is a sad but true fact that youth and smoking and chewing tobacco is a crisis that needs to be dealt with.

How Common Is Smoking/chewing tobacco With Young People?

Smoking among the younger generation is more rampant than many people think. In India alone it is not uncommon to see even the school-going children either smoking cigarettes or chewing tobacco. These trends need to be stopped, because of the dangerous health effects of tobacco consumption among young people that carry into adult life.

Why Do Young People Smoke or chew tobacco?

Peer Pressure
The number one reason that many young people start smoking regardless of the smoking effects on their health is peer pressure. Someone they respect or wish to emulate gives them a chance to start smoking, and tells them they will be fine. The kids do not want to appear "un-cool" and so they start smoking.
Easy Availaility
Cigarettes and gutkhas (masalas) are easily available in neighborhood. Many people deliberately set up small shops selling such tobacco products near school & college premises. Although laws are there which prevents such shops from selling tobacco products near school & college premises, they are hardly implemented due to corruption.
Advertising
Another reason that kids take to smoking is because of the advertising of the cigarette manufacturers. Cigarette ads are aimed at the young, making smoking look like the cool, popular thing to do. Things emphasized by cigarette ads are young adults who have a strong sex appeal, or things that appeal to young guys, like weapons, cowboys, and other things. Kids are given the idea that smoking makes you sexy, strong, and invincible!
Desire to Look Mature
Sometimes kids take up smoking because they want to look mature. After all, smoking is considered an "adult" behavior, and they think they will look cool when they smoke, or that they will look more grown up.
Rebellion
Finally, many kids take up smoking because they want to rebel against their authorities. No matter what the activity, if you tell kids they cannot or should not do something, some will want to do it simply to buck against their authority.

Harmful Effects of Smoking & Chewing Tobacco

The spread of addiction of tobacco – be it in form of smoking (cigarettes, bidis), chewing tobacco (gutkas, masala etc.) is really alarming.

Chewing of Tobacco

Chewing tobacco also known as smokeless tobacco (gutkas, masala etc) is as harmful as smoking. It is a myth that chewing is not as harmful as smoking. Chewing tobacco is made of tobacco, nicotine, sweeteners and chemicals. The continuous chewing process gives a constant high to the person. This high leads gives temporary relief from stress and anxiety. Small temporary relief leads the person to use it frequently and before the person realizes he is addicted.

Chewing tobacco leads to numerous harmful health effects, which can be internal or external. The main harmful effects of tobacco are:

indecent.

Affects Eating Habit

Eating habit of people who chews tobacco tends to be unhealthy, continuous chewing affects the taste bud and the sensitivity of them decreases. This leads to an increase in intake of more salt, sugar and spices in food as he feels a bland taste in his mouth.

The above effects of

tobacco is just the beginning of trouble for people who chew, it has more deep rooted and life threatening effects. Chewing of tobacco has major or near to fatal effect on addicted people. The major areas where they proved to be fatal are:

  • Damage to tongue, jaw and lips
  • Lung Cancer
  • Oral Cancer
Damage to tongue, jaw and lips

As mentioned above chewing leads to the early decay of tooth, bad breadth, damaged gums and falling of tooth. The addiction of tobacco affects the area around the mouth. The tongue and jaws face the following problems:

  • Dis-coloring of lips and lip cancer
  • Sore Throat
  • Difficulty in movement of jaws and tongue
  • Rashes or irritation on tongue
  • Burning sensation on lips and tongue

lop in white patches that can be considered as an early symptom of oral cancer.

People who indulge in tobacco chewing have higher risk of oral cancer to people who take alcohol. The most infected area in oral cancer is the tongue a

nd the area below the tongue.

The cancer slowly spreads to cheeks and throat. Though it can attack any part lips, tongue, upper and lower mouth, the cheeks, or gums and esophagus.

It is very important to go for early diagnosis as soon as one feels suspicious.

Reports show that 90% of lung cancers are cases of people who either smoke or chew tobacco. Destructive agents termed as carcinogens in tobacco injure the cells in the lungs. Over a period of time, these spoiled cells may develop into lung cancer.

Birthday Wishes - A poem



       Birthday Wishes

The day even gold lose its glitter
For it can’t be as bright as you
And all flowers fear to bloom
For they can’t be as fresh as you.
The day all diamonds lose their worth
For they have no worth in front of you
And even snow just melt
For it can’t be as pure as you.
That’s the day when
We all say to you
“Happy Birthday to You,
Happy Birthday to You."

My PC crashed Again!

At last, my PC started working fine after it crashed last Friday. I called the technician the same day but due Diwali holidays there was lot of backlog and also there weren’t enough men available to do the job. Most of them went on a Diwali vacation. Otherwise, my PC would have been running smoothly in a day or two. Now it took four days!

I thought my PC has become outdated and that’s why it is giving me problem now-a-days. But the problem was something else. The two RAMs in the PC were conflicting with each other. Hence the older one which was slowing down the PC had to be removed.

Due this technical problem I had to stay offline without even touching my PC. I couldn’t even drop on entrecard and Adgitize for four days at a stretch. I hope my e-buddies will understand my problem and continue to give their support by regularly visiting my site.

Life Sans Love - A Poem

The following poem was penned by me on March 1, 2007 when I was feeling very lonely and loveless.





LIFE SANS LOVE

Life is so lonely, loveless & so dry
Can’t complain & even cry
Doesn’t matter whom I love & admire
For whom my heart beats & is on fire
But cede to divine desire.

My desire, my wish
Has no meaning, no weight
Can’t even dream of that perfect bliss
With my love, my cherished mate
For God’s will is my only fate.

Life is fruitless and futile,
Crawling like a big reptile,
Compassion and pity is all
I get in life, which I call
Is nothing but big beggar’s bowl.

Wealth, woman, wine and not even fame,
Just to behold Love’s lovely smile
With dimples adorning - all the while
If not she, then just her name
On my desert lips - be my only aim.

Even a wish to die is not simply mine
In the eyes of Lord it’s not simply fine
No choice left but to drag the life
Through the sharp edge of the cruel knife.

Instead, they cultivate a sense of appreciation that brings them wealth beyond measure.

  • Lazylancing: It is when you subsidize your travel with freelance work after being laid off from job.

Hope Against Hope - A Poem

I composed this poem on October 21, 2008. This poem reflects my true feelings and emotions. If you like the poem please do leave a comment.


   Hope Against Hope

I will love you forever
But you won’t love me a bit – I can bet;
You won’t even think of me – never and ever;
Still I’ll keep on loving you just like that.

Even if I die for you, my love
You won’t even look back
for once to see my fate.
I know you will choose to love
a lifeless gravel or a vagabond but me,
Still you will be the one and only one for me.
Oh, you are not cruel, it’s just my fate
And if you’ll know my feelings, you’ll just hate.

But no matter, till eternity I’ll have to wait.
For only hope is what I have with me
And I hope that my hope will win
One day....you see....

A Heart Touching Story

A Heart Touching Story


(Last day I received a very interesting email from one of my friends which had the following story in it. I liked it very much so I thought I should post it here and share it with my readers. I hope you will like it.)

Once upon a time there was a little boy who was raised in an orphanage.
The little boy had always wished that he could fly like a bird.
It was very difficult for him to understand why he could not fly.
There were birds at the zoo that were much bigger than he, and they could fly
"Why can't I?" he thought. "Is there something wrong with me?" he wondered.

There was another little boy who was crippled. He had always wished that he could walk
and run like other little boys and girls.

"Why can't I be like them?" he thought.

One day the little orphan boy who had wanted to fly like a bird ran away from the orphanage.
He came upon a park where he saw the little boy who could not walk or run playing in the
sandbox. He ran over to the little boy and asked him if he had ever wanted to fly like a bird.

"No," said the little boy who could not walk or run. "But I have wondered what it would be
like to walk and run like other boys and girls."

"That is very sad”, said the little boy who wanted to fly. "Do you think we could be friends?"
he said to the little boy in the sandbox.

"Sure." said the little boy. The two little boys played for hours. They made sand castles
and made really funny sounds with their mouths. Sounds, which made them laugh,
real hard. Then the little boy's father came with a wheelchair to pick up his son.
The little boy who had always wanted to fly ran over to the boy's father and
whispered something into his ear.

"That would be OK," said the man.

The little boy who had always wanted to fly like a bird ran over to his new friend and said,
"You are my only friend and I wish that there was something that I could do to make
you walk and run like other little boys and girls. But I can't. But there is something that I can do for you."

The little orphan boy turned around and told his new friend to slide up onto his back.
He then began to run across the grass. Faster and faster he ran, carrying the little crippled boy
on his back. Faster and harder he ran across the park. Harder and harder he made his legs travel.
Soon the wind just whistled across the two little boys' faces.

The little boy's father began to cry as he watched his beautiful little crippled son flapping
his arms up and down in the wind, all the while yelling at the top of his voice,
"I'M FLYING, DADDY. I'M FLYING!"

Moral Of The Story :

Always try to find happiness
by making others happy.

To Remember You Is My Destiny

I wrote this poem on September 14, 2009. It goes like:

To Remember You Is My Destiny
Every thought that comes to my mind,
Instructs my mind to think of you.
Every night when slumber make me blind,
States my eyes to dream of you.
Every drop of blood that flows through my heart,
Reminds my heart to remember you.
Every beat that throb my heart,
Tells me that they beat for you.
Every breath that keeps me alive,
Prompts me that I live for you.
Wherever I am or whatever I do,
Now it’s my destiny to just remember you.

Strangulated Feeling

I composed the following poem on March 25, 2007. It goes like:

Strangulated Feeling

A secret feeling I can’t express,
Without expressing I can’t repress
To express it is really hard
While repressing it- I’ve become a bard.
 
Wanna express my love to her all the time
But it’s so hard to express even a single time.
Don’t know the way to vent my love
The only hope is God above.
 
There is no medium, no outlet
To call my love for a simple date,
Can’t say my love to my love,
Though she is gentle like a dove.
 
Social bounds- so hard to break
So many barriers- tough nut to crack
Circumstances- never went my way
Could see the hope just fading away
 
All because I have no right
For I’m disable, I have no might.

Love SMS

Love can never be taught for it is to be learned;

Love can never be kept for it is to be free;

Love can never be old for it is to last for a lifetime.

I need no jewel, they can be sold,

Your heart glitters more than gold,

You are as pure as a baby at birth,

I need no heaven when you are on earth.

Always search for a beautiful heart,

Don’t search a beautiful face,

Because beautiful things are not always good,

But good things are always beautiful.

But now it has gone from me to you.

So please take care of it, just like I do,

Because I have no heart & now you have two.

THE NEW WORLD OF MINE !

I composed the following poem on March 25, 2007, when the feeling of Love touched my heart and my entire world changed forever since then.


The New World of Mine

It’s a feeling I never felt before

So brand new and reaching to my core,

It’s lust, love or something really more.

I know not, not for sure.

The world is now a different place.

In every little things

What I see is just your face;

In every sound that sings,

I hear your velvet voice;

In every flower that blooms,

I see your dimpled smile.

My heartbeat just go zoom

When I see it for a while;

In the beauty of your eyes

Want just a little room

Where I’d like to live and die.

Now the world is full of different hues;

Everywhere it’s just you and only you.

You are here; you are there,

I find you everywhere;

In every dream at every night,

I’ve your sensuous frame in sight;

Every night and everyday

Just your lovely name I must say.

My heart is now your slave

The way you’ve mesmerized

Now only you can save

‘Coz only you’ve hypnotized.

The feeling – I’ll cherish it forever;

It’s so sweet and so lovely, I’ll forget it – never

Its love and really something more,

I know its true love that I was waiting for.

Why the Title – ‘Die-Hard Optimist’?

Why I’ve titled my blog – ‘Die-Hard Optimist’? People or the reader may think that I must be bragging or blowing things out of proportions. But there’s a strong reason for being so.

There are a times when I felt really down and out. There are many instances when I couldn’t get what I want or things don’t go the way I want it to be. I could find no way out of the situation. I felt utterly helpless and really depressed. And consequently I began to think that I should give up. But after sometime something shakes me up and I try to find solace in prayer and that power of prayer gives me back my confidence. I resolve to do my best and leave the rest to God, relying total faith in divine help. Then I began to feel positive and determined. And finally, with solid determination I get on with my life.

This happens with me every time I’m in trouble or in stress. After feeling depressed for sometime, I get my optimism back with a bang. There’s always a hidden optimism in me which wakes me up whenever I feel utterly helpless, hopeless, down and out.

Beauty Divine


Beauty Divine
You have set my heart on fire,
You have fanned a new desire.
It’s going only higher and higher;
Now it’s ever so strong
I promise you baby
I’ll never go wrong.
Now call me close to you,
Now let me hold in my arms
How different seem the hue?
For I’m the victim of your charm.

Ooh! I see, it’s your beauty divine,
That’s taking me higher on cloud No. 9
Ooh! I see, it’s your body so fine
That’s making me want you
And make you just mine.

Can I caress you there?
Can I hold you through the line?
Now I’ll steal the fragrance from your hair
And dance with you throughout the night.
You have got the drawing power,
You have made me your dreamy lover
Now my heart is under your spell
How can it be free, no one can tell.

Ooh! I see, it’s your beauty divine,
That’s taking me higher on cloud No. 9
Ooh! I see, it’s your body so fine
That’s making me want you
And make you just mine.

Wanna taste your lips sweet flavor
Wanna live like this forever
Now I’m gonna lost in your almond eyes
‘cause you’re the charmer in disguise
See even stars have lost their might
Nothing seems brighter -
Just you and your light
You are my soul,
You are my all.

Facts About Life

  • Learning means to hear almost everything without losing one’s temper and self-confidence.
  • It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return. But what is more painful is to love someone and never find courage to let that person know how you feel.
  • A sad thing about life is when you meet someone who means a lot to you, only to find out in the end that was never meant to be and you have to let go.
  • It’s true that we don’t know what we’ve got until we lost it, but it’s also true that we don’t know what we’ve been missing until it arrives.
  • It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, and a day to love someone. But it takes a lifetime to forget someone.
  • Don’t go for looks; they can deceive. Don’t go wealth, even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seen bright.
  • Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do the things you want to do.
  • Always put yourself in the other’s shoes. If you feel it hurts you, it probably hurts that person too.
  • A careless word may kindle strife; a cruel word may wreck a life; a timely word may level stress; but a loving word may heal and bless.
  • The happiest of people don’t necessarily have everything they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.
  • The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you have ever had.

Top 5 News channel in India

Top 5 News channel in India

In India now-a-days almost every other day a new TV channel comes into existence. With that the number of News based TV channels on air have risen tremendously. So at times it becomes difficult to decide as to which News channel to believe. Although most run the same top stories through-out the day, they try to be different from one another by focusing on different topic as their Top stories and this ability makes the difference. Therefore, from all the Hindi and the English News channels, I rated my Top 5 news channel in India. Only those channels which are dedicated to general news are taken into consideration. They are:

  1. NDTV:

I like this channel because topics and discussions carried on the channel are quite relevant. They focus on items which truly deserve to be called NEWS. Ethics & code of conduct of this channel is very strict. Moreover, their news try to create awareness among the people & give a strong social message which is truly admirable. This channel also has sister channel called ‘NDTV India’ which again cater to Hindi viewers and most news contents are same except discussions & debates on weekends. The strong point of this channel is that their debates are quite good. It’s a different thing that politicians often hijack the debate shows to promote their narrow & selfish ideologies.

2. CNN IBN :

This is relatively new channel compared to NDTV and Aaj Tak, but their focus on the news is quite good. Their sister channel ‘IBN-7’ which cater to the Hindi viewers deliver the similar contents. So I have not included that channel in my top 5 list. Their content and selection of top stories stand out. The quality & presentation of news is also excellent.

  1. Times Now:

This English news channels comes from the stable of Times group and therefore their news becomes more credible. It does not live up-to my expectations, considering their promoters reputation in the field of news.

  1. Zee News:

This is a good Hindi news channel. Though sometimes it lacks focus, it is better than Aaj Tak. News and its presentations are ok- at least it doesn’t make news out of non-news items.

  1. NEWS X:

This one is a new kid on the block. It’s an English news channel which I think has started quite decently. However it remains to be seen how it delivers in the long-run. Although a new-comer this channel doesn’t spawn thrash as news like other channels like Aaj-Tak, Tej, Live India and others do.

One of the startling facts is that channels like Aaj-Tak, Star News, India TV etc. has become junk. They don’t have any news content. They just concentrate on rubbish matters from reality shows running on various TV channels. I often fail to understand how such things can be called NEWS.

One of My Favorite Songs

I'm a great fan of Enrique Iglesius. I like the way he sings & lyrics of his songs are so romantic and touchy. The Following song is my current favorite because I feel that this song is just about me & my feelings.

I wish I were Your Lover

You know I got this feeling that I just can't hide

I try to tell you how I feel

I try to tell you but I'm me

Words don't come easily

When you get close I share them

I watch you when you smile

I watch you when you cry

And I still don't understand

I can't find the way to tell you

I wish I was your lover

I wish that you were mine

Baby I got this feeling

That I just can't hide

Don't try to run away

There's many things I wanna say

No matter how it ends

Just hold me when I tell you

I wish I was your lover

I wish that you were mine

Baby I got this feeling

That I just can't hide

I wish I was your lover

I wish that you were mine

Baby I got this feeling

That I just can't hide

Oh I need is a miracle

Oh baby all I need is you

All I need is a love you give

Oh baby all I need is you

Baby you

I wish I was your lover

I wish that you were mine

Baby I got this feeling

That I just can't hide

I wish I was your lover ( I wish I was your lover)

I wish that you were mine

Baby I got this feeling

That I just can't hide

I wish I was your lover

I wish that you were mine

Baby I got this feeling

That I just can't hide

Just wanna be your lover

Just wanna be the one

Let me be your lover

Let me be the one

Yeah Yeah
