Sky Watch on 21.12.2012

Well well… the world was supposed to end today morning and my son has been curiously asking me way too much about it and I already regret having decided to tell him that some Mayan’s thought today the earth was going to end… Never tell an 8 year old that… no he doesn’t get scared he only gets so anxious and curious he will kill you with his questions and logics and actually make you pull your hair… just as you are enjoying Rahane smashing Sixes he comes up with a logic… login to gmail and talk to some friend in Australia… ask them if they are alive !!!! I am like why ? What ? It must be midnight so it must be 21st there and probably they are already being finished  😐  and then he will ask you, how are you going to save me and mom if suppose a flood comes ? Smart Dad says, we go to the terrace, well, what if the water goes above the 2nd floor, irritated dad says, we climb to the terrace of the building next to us, but logical son wants to know, how can we go to that building when we are on our house terrace and its water till 2 floors sigh.. 😐 Thankfully two wickets fell and the attention got diverted… *phew*

Anxiously enough today morning’s sky looked a bit like this at 7!

Quotes, chucked jobs & entrepreneurship

 

What with Warren Buffett quotes and sayings flying everywhere on Facebook I couldn’t resist this post, I have always read every piece that reads the word Buffet for obvious reasons… :mrgreen:  The non believers will probably turn up and just stick their 😛 and tell me I only care about food ! Yes I do, but I do listen to all important things this man has to say… He infact has very simple things to say but at most times we forget these simple, seemingly inane yet fundamentally most important ways of behaving especially when it comes to investments, managing risk and seeking returns.

Investing time in food is as important as anything 🙂 🙂 🙂

And when Legendary Investors like him are allowed to throw their gyaan everywhere why would this True Legend in every sense be left behind anywhere…

 

Yes, Usha, right after reading your Buffet quote share and me sharing another piece of advice by Buffet yours truly left for his work and while driving his bike came up with this genius thought in his brain…

 

“In the service industry its pertinent that you give maximum priority to an existing customer and always ensure he is satisfied even at the cost of new business.” – Hitchy Bawa 7th Feb 2012

 

Simple logic being if you have only satisfied customers they will ensure you have no dearth of new business /clients 🙂 🙂 🙂

 

Anyone that guffaws thinking this is simply so obvious can actually go jump in the lake. I think this is a genius piece that I have come up with and I am laying claims to this !!!! 👿 If this is obvious so are all of Buffet’s advises. He says nothing that we don’t know and yet they are so priceless, practical and most difficult to actually comprehend in reality, in moments where they most necessarily need to be practiced.

Now if you happen to find this post completely useless… sigh… and yes I don’t just blog for myself, I do crave to be read by you readers… yea ! Jump and Clap… I do write for you… for I never understood people who write for themselves… why they would put things in public and not in a diary of their own 😛 😛 😛 ok yea that was a cheapstroke and I know it :mrgreen:

**ducks all the chappals and sandals** 😛 😈

 

Sigh… enough of digressing… coming back to if you find this post completely useless… well here is a piece of small information that might prove to be useful…

 

Just yesterday a friend called me to ask what is the formula to calculate the interest if the money is being doubled in 8 years. Whilst I told him that I can teach him that vonly and vonly if he will feed me a Tees Number Paan… A thought passed my mind may be I should post the same on the blog some of you might also be faced with a similar question at some point of time 🙂

 

Well folks, behold…

 

72 is a magic figure to calculate Interest or duration of money being doubled.

 

Can’t get it ?

 

Lemme explain…

 

If someone tells you he will double your money in 6 years. Simply divide 72 by 6 and you get 12 that is the rate of interest he is offering to you.

 

And if some one is telling you he is giving you 9% interest and you are wondering how do I calculate when will my money double and you feel you can’t be an ass and ask the guy… here is a simple thing to do…

 

take 72 and divide it by 9 and lo… 8 years is the time in which your money will be doubled. 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 :angel:

Yes… bless me… 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Old err… New Mountain sayings…. !

 

When you travel to the hills, when it gets freezing cold, when your hands refuse to come out of your pockets unless you want to use them for holding a tea cup, when your nose is frozen and you keep gasping for breath and keep shivering one thing that suddenly improves is your sense of humour !!!

some snippets suddenly jump out and they are so much fun… a couple of  the most popular one liner’s that I’d like to share with you guys during our trip….

1.) Nahate woh log hai…. jo gande hote hai… ! (to be spoken in true Raj Kumar accent for ace effect !!! 😛 😛 )

2.) Jab junglo mein rehna hai… to jungliyo ki tarah hi raho… ! (to be spoken in true Punjabi Accent for max effect 😎 )

3.) Arrey… yeh makhiya kaha se aa gayi…. Abhi do din pehle hi to nahaye the… ! ( must be spoken softly as if mumbling to yourself ! 😈  )

this one is a question followed by a one line reply by one guy who was absolutely wabsolutely drunk and had lost his senses… well that was what we thought, but one thing about alchohol… it may make you lose your senses, it doesnt let you lose your wit !!!!!

The Sober Guy : Aapki Age kya ho gayi… ?

The witty Drunk Guy : 40 !

The Sober Guy : To phir kya vichar hai… Shaadi Waadi nahi karni ??

The witty Drunk Guy : O.. Ji… mujhe… hain na…  pause… main… hain na…. mujhe shaanti bahot pasand hai… isliye… hai na… main ladaai jhagde se door hi rehta hooon… !! :O

Frankly, for a second, I didnt get the joke… and then I was Guffawing like crazy !!!!! 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀

Underarm ? A definite no no !!!!

Well no point in telling you how much I love cricket, you all know it ! But this is different… I actually did something a cricketer should never do… but before I tell you what I did and what transpired, I must tell you this infamous cricket story…

Whenever you ask a cricketer about the Underarm, Immediately the image of Greg Chappell comes to your mind… The silly and totally disgraceful skipper of Australia instructed his brother Trevor Chappell to bowl the last delivery to be bowled under arm when New Zealand to win the third final needed 7 to win of the last ball !!!! Imagine 7 to win of the last ball !!!

This is what happened….

Even the wicketkeeper Rodney Marsh immediately said NO and shook his head… but alas !!!

Whilst my favourite commentator Bill Lawry wasnt as scathing in his remarks about this incident while he was on air… you must just see how angry Richie Benaud is !!!! I have never seen Richie lose his temper… and it goes without saying he is another one of my most admired cricketer, cricket captain and commentator. Just check Richie out in this video :

Even the guy whose advice I blindly follow when it comes to cricket judgement and the best Cricket Captain ever Ian Chappell had this to say about the underarm incident which involved his brother :


“Fair dinkum, Greg, how much pride do you sacrifice to win $35,000?”

And…

Yet….

I somehow….

persuaded by lil devils….

decided to go Underarm….

and the result….

Sigh….

with a heavy heart

This is what you get when you dont listen to Icons….

I Here by swear !!!!

Never to UNDERARM again !

at times you must sulk…

when nothing works,

everything sucks,

the brain jams,

yea, at such times, traffic too jams, (invariably)

all efforts, down the drain,

nothing to show, no silver lining, wonly dark heavy clouds,

depression everywhere,

rewards ?????? Pah….

are you out of your mind…. !!!!!!!!!

only firing,

yea thats the time when

sigh….

I decided to watch this movie….

lol… its just not hitchy style to sulk….

here are a couple of scenes of this movie that will have you ROFLING !!!!!

and the climax scene… !!! this is classic Farooq Sheikh !!!!

Legend

The word Legend as described in Wiki :

A legend (Latin, legenda, “things to be read”) is a narrative of human actions that are perceived both by teller and listeners to take place within human history and to possess certain qualities that give the tale verisimilitude. Legend, for its active and passive participants includes no happenings that are outside the realm of “possibility”, defined by a highly flexible set of parameters, which may include miracles that are perceived as actually having happened, within the specific tradition of indoctrination where the legend arises, and within which it may be transformed over time, in order to keep it fresh and vital, and realistic.


This day the 12th of December, as per zodiacs is no ordinary day, only some true stars, legends, icons actually people who qualify for all the three virtues listed and even more have been allowed to take birth on this day…

The grand daddy of all singers, he still remains one of the most influential and celebrated singers of all time…


The grand daddy of all singers, he still remains one of the most influential and celebrated singers of all time…

Frank Sinatra born on the 12th of December is and will forever remain a legend… !

In cricket nothing is adored with as much love as a Six. Its the ultimate aim of all batsmen to hit a six and then who else but this Punjab da Puttar is better when it comes to hitting sixes…

Yuvraj Singh born on 12th December… a legend still in the making… !

and then there is…

Bhagooooooooooooooooooooooo

and just how life changes…

An income tax notice, deaths, injuries to junior, bad time at office, tussle with boss… and what not… and as some kind soul suggested… even sehwag missed his century thanks to that no ball… sigh… :mrgreen:

and then… one phone call… you became a fua… (my bro in law and his wife were blessed with a girl) and the new child suddenly cheers you up a lil… you perk up… then suddenly boss comes to cajole you, sales suddenly picks up… infact a rather significant amount of progress made… then suddenly your childhood best friend rings you up saying he is coming for a few days of chutti, late nights, parties, movies, nonveg and what not is in store…. even the shares you bought suddenly start running up…

just quite amazing how life suddenly changes from zilch to a million… !!!! I tell you… and then I say to myself… Its just not hitchy style to be down… is it… !!!! Good news are here… !!!!!!! 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀

Times are a changing… !

Infact the weekend even sees wife going o/s to see the new girl and that means Late late nights and Aiyashi toooooooo 😛 😛 😛 😛 well the wife going part is sad… but the aiyashi part is Wooooo hooooooo !!!! 😛 😛 😛 😈 :mrgreen:

just a few random thoughts

 

 

Wonder if our Prime Minister meant anything when he spoke yesterday… infact I just thought he spoke to remind he exists, never mind the Kashmir youths…. I seriously think we have a completely useless Prime Minister, who with all due respect is just happy to be Prime Minister. India is actually facing a severe severe severe leadership crisis… Manmohan can thank his stars that all said and done he has no opponent !! 😐

 

Also have you ever felt, that if you watch the news everyday, you can have a plethora of topics to blog about… just one day of watching news for one hour and Mamta, Mirwaiz, Manmohan dance on my head… also our sports minister who says you go and file an RTI and I will reply about the corruption in the Commonwealth Games. Sigh…

 

Practically a chaotic country like India should have never tried to host the Common Wealth Games, lets leave it to the more prosperous countries. I hate saying this but its the truth isnt it… our garbage is now out in the open and the whole world can laugh about it… seriously NRI’s please please console me that there is equal amount of corruption everywhere probably there is more finess (hope the spelling is right, but you get what I mean right ??) there and they are not as blatant as us… ! 😦  Also I pray and wish that we can actually conduct the games… Its going to be a herculean task…

 

By the way do you know what the f*ck do they mean by the word (moderate) which stands behind the Hurriyat Conference (moderate) means ??

 

Its flooding damn right everywhere, only it doesnt flood in hitchy’s town and hitchy just has to toe the line of the boss and reach office daily on time at 9 !!!! 😥

 

I seriously need to colour my hair, back in my hometown after three years, I am bored of hearing since the last 5 months where everyone thinks I have suddenly become so … err… mature… ! :mrgreen:

 

and then you suddenly see that girl in school, all were crazy about her, including you, she was once a girl who asked you “will you be my friend???” and you like a guy who watches the oasis in a desert after a weeks thirst had jumped and said YESSSS !!!! suddenly yes… she is in your Boss’ cabin, and you are like waiting for her to get out, you ask boss and boss says, she came for interview (will be my colleague) … and boss asks you… “Isko jaanta hai tu ??” you nod and he asks, “Kaisi hai? Isko rakh le ??”

 

boy how how how can you answer anything, anything, anything but, YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS !!!!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

 

Good times beckon I am sure… !!! 😛 :mrgreen: 😎
