This sunday Me, Raghu and Billu planned to go to movie “Maleyali jotheyali”. Raghu bought tickets for Afternoon show 2.30PM at Eeshwari theatre, sister of Kaamakya theatre. Movie was nice, it was good to watch ganesh after a long break.
After the movie we were thinking what to do. We had few options, visit all factory outlets of big garment companies, visit central to look at new clothes. Finally we dint do both of these. Instead we visited 4 temples 🙂
1. Vidyapeetha Krishna temple
2. Ramanjaneya gudda.
3. Dodda ganapathi
4. Dodda nandi
It was a peaceful way to spend Sunday evening. We always knew in god’s place we can find peace, but still we were running behind the shops to find happiness.
We had churmuri outside ramanjaneya gudda. I had tomoto masala, Billu had nippattu masaala. This reminded us of our school days, where eating churmuri was most common. Find 2-3/- from home and eat churmuri. 🙂
After churmuri we went to “Can-O-La”, sugar cane juice joint opened in B’lore abt 5 years back. It was refreshing. We still had plenty of time to spend in the sunday, so we visited the doda ganapathi and dodda nandi which were nearby.
In short it was sunday well spent. 🙂
Do try this on ur weekends, its kind of fun.

My mom was so happy when I told her this. She always wanted that her kids learn good culture and visit temples often.

ಲವ್ ಗುರು… ನಿನ್ನ ಸಹವಾಸ ಬೇಡಪ್ಪಾ August 1, 2009

ಮೊನ್ನೆ ಲವ್ ಗುರುಗೆ ಹೋಗಿದ್ದೆ. ಮನೆಯಲ್ಲಿ X-MEN III ನೋಡುವ ಪ್ಲಾನ್ ಇದ್ದದ್ದನ್ನು ಕ್ಯಾನ್ಸಲ್ ಮಾಡಿ ಲವ್ ಗುರುಗೆ ಹೋದೆ. ಅದು ದೊಡ್ಡ ತಪ್ಪು  ಅಂತ ನನಗೆ ಸ್ವಲ್ಪ ಸಮಯದಲ್ಲೇ ಗೊತ್ತಾಯ್ತು.

ಚಿತ್ರದ ತಾರಾಗಣ:‌ತರುಣ್, ರಾಧಿಕಾ ಪಂಡಿತ್, ದಿಲೀಪ್, ಹರೀಶ್ ರಾಜ್.

ಇದು ಒಬ್ಬ ಭಗ್ನ ಪ್ರೇಮಿಯ ಕಥೆ. ಅವನು ತನ್ನ ಪ್ರೀತಿಯನ್ನು ಪ್ರೇಯಸಿಗೆ ಹೇಳಲಾಗದೆ ಅವಳನ್ನು ಕಳೆದುಕೊLLಉತ್ತಾನೆ. ಭಗ್ನ ಪ್ರೇಮಿಯ ಪಾತ್ರದಲ್ಲಿ ತರುಣ್ ಅತ್ಯಂತ ಕೆಟ್ಟ ಅಭಿನಯವನ್ನು ನೀಡಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ರಾಧಿಕಾ ಪಂಡಿತ್ಗೆ ಕೂಡ ಅಭಿನಯ ಬರೋದಿಲ್ಲ, ಹಾಗಾಗಿ ಚಿತ್ರ ನೋಡೋದು ಒಂದು ದೊಡ್ಡ ಹಿಂಸೆಯಾಗಿ ಬಿಡ್ತು. ತರುಣ್ಗೆ  ಕಂಠದಾನ ಮಾಡಿರುವುದು ‘ಪಂಚೆ ಶ್ಯಾಮ’ ಅಲಿಯಾಸ್ ವಿಕ್ರಮ್ ಸೂರಿ. ಅದ್ಯಾರ ಮೇಲಿನ ಕೋಪಕ್ಕೆ ಪಂಚೆ ಶ್ಯಾಮ ಹಾಗೆ ಮಾಡಿdnಓ ಗೊತ್ತಿಲ್ಲ. ಒಟ್ಟಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಕಂಠದಾನ ತರುಣ್ಗೆ ಸ್ವಲ್ಪವು ಹೊಂದುವುದಿಲ್ಲ. ತರುಣ ಕೆಟ್ಟ ಅಭಿನಯ ತಾರಕಕ್ಕೆ ಏರೋದು, ಕುಡಿತದ ದ್ುಶ್ಯದಲ್ಲಿ.

ನಾನು ಕೆಟ್ಟ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳನ್ನು ನೋಡೋದಿಲ್ಲ ಎಂದು ಕೆಲವು ತಿಂಗಳ ಹಿಂದೆ ಪ್ರಮಾಣ ಮಾಡಿದ್ದೆ. ಅದು ಮುರಿದೆ ಸಿಟ್ಟಿಗೆ ಇರಬೇಕು, ನಾನು ಸಿನೇಮಾದ ವಿರಾಮದಲ್ಲೇ ಮನೆಗೆ ಹೊರಟಿದ್ದೆ. ನನ್ನ ಸ್ನೇಹಿತನ ಬಲವಂತಕ್ಕೆ ಅಲ್ಲೇ ಉಳಿದೆ.

ಇನ್ನು ಮುಂದೆ ಹೀಗೆ ಆಗಲ್ಲ. ಚಿತ್ರದ ವಿಮರ್ಶೆ ಓದಿದ ಮೇಲೇನೆ ನಾನು ಚಿತ್ರಮಂದಿರಕ್ಕೆ ಕಾಲಿಡೋದು.

ಈ ಚಿತ್ರವನ್ನು ನೋಡಲು ಚಿತ್ರಮಂದಿರಕ್ಕೆ ಅಪ್ಪಿ ತಪ್ಪಿನೂ ಹೋಗಬೇಡಿ. ಕೆಲವೇ ದಿನದಲ್ಲಿ ಈ ಚಿತ್ರ ಯಾವುದಾದ್ರು ಚಾನಲ್ನಲ್ಲಿ ಬರಲಿದೆ. ಜೀ ಕನ್ನಡ ಅಥವ ಉದಯದವರು ಯಾವುದಾದರು ಹಬ್ಬಕ್ಕೆ ಈ‌ಚಿತ್ರ ಹಾಕಿ ಹೇಳ್ತಾರೆ, “ಕಿರುತೆರೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ರಪ್ರಥಮ ಬಾರಿಗೆ, ಸೂಊಊಊಪರ್ ಹಿಟ್ ಚಲನಚಿತ್ರ ‘ಲವ್ ಗುರು'” ಅಂತ. ಅದನ್ನು ಕೇಳಿ ಮರುಳಾಗಬೇಡಿ..  ‘ಲವ್ ಗುರು’ ನಾನು ಇತ್ತೀಚೆಗೆ ಕಂಡ ಅತ್ಯಂತ ಡಬ್ಬ ಚಿತ್ರ.

ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಬ್ಲಾಗ್ ಬರೆಯಬೇಕೆಂದು ನನ್ನ ಆಸೆಯಾಗಿತ್ತು… ಆದರೆ ಅಷ್ಟರಲ್ಲಿ ನನ್ನ ಸೈಟ್ನ ಅವಧಿ ಮುಗಿದುಹೋಗಿತ್ತು… ಅದಕ್ಕಾಗಿ ನನ್ನ ವರ್ಡ್ಪ್ರೆಸ್ ಬ್ಲಾಗ್ನಲ್ಲಿ ಬರೀತಾ ಇದ್ದೀನಿ.. ಇನ್ನು ಮೇಲೆ ಈ ಬ್ಲಾಗ್ನಲ್ಲಿ ಕನ್ನಡದ ಲೇಖನಗಳನ್ನು ಮಾತ್ರ ಬರೆಯೋ ತೀರ್ಮಾನ ಮಾಡಿದ್ದೀನಿ.. ಈ  ಇಂಟರ್ನೆಟ್ ಯುಗದಲ್ಲಿ ನನ್ನ ಮಾತು ಸ್ವಲ್ಪ ದಡ್ಡತನದ್ದು ಅನ್ನಿಸಬಹುದು ನಿಮಗೆ, ಆದರೆ ಉಬುಂಟುನಲ್ಲಿ SCIM ನ ಸ್ವಲ್ಪ ತೊಂದರೆ ಇದ್ದ ಕಾರಣ ಇಷ್ಟು ದಿನ ಬರೆಯಲು ಆಗಲಿಲ್ಲ.. ಅದಕ್ಕೂ ಮುಂಚೆ ಎರಡು ತಿಂಗಳು ನನ್ನ ಲ್ಯಾಪ್ಟಾಪ್ ಕೆಟ್ಟು ಹೋಗಿ ಅದನ್ನು  ರಿಪೇರಿ ಮಾಡಿಸುವುದರಲ್ಲಿ ಸಮಯ ಕಳೆದು ಹೋಯ್ತು… ಅದರ ನಂತರ ೪ ವಾರ ಇಂಟರ್ನೆಟ್ ಇಲ್ಲದೆ ತೊಂದರೆ ಅನುಭವಿಸಿದೆ.. ಇಷ್ಟೆಲ್ಲ ಅಡೆತಡೆಗಳ ಮಧ್ಯೆ ನನ್ನ ಕನ್ನಡದ ಬ್ಲಾಗ್ ಮಾಡುವ ಆಸೆ ಹಾಗೆಯೇ ಉಳಿದಿತ್ತು.. ಇಂದು ಸಮಯ ಕೂಡಿ ಬಂದಿದೆ..

Difference among indians… January 18, 2008

Written by a north Indian …….

Hi friends,

This is a live update from chennai.

Language – Tamil, tamil and tamil. Even if they know hindi, they dont speak up.

People – We never heard anyone laughing here (I wonder if they ever laugh or shout)

So conservative, that noone talks even in the bus

Food – Idly, sambhar, rice, dosa, vada, pongal

We have to cook our food ourselves (unbelievable naa).

Weather – summer from october to feb and rest of the year it’s deadly summer.

Lesiure – TV, dormitery, dirty sea beaches on weekends

Rent – 6.5 K / 1 BHK

Advance – 6 months

Aata – Rs. 26 /kg

Apple – Rs 100 /kg

Orange – Rs. 10/piece

Banana – Rs 3 /piece

Mausmi Juice -Rs 18 /glass

Jeans Dryclean – Rs.40

Phulka – Rs. 8 (idly also Rs.8)

Interesting facts and incidents :

1. Here you cannot buy a needle after 6 PM (strange).

2. We asked an auto driver, “hindi aati hai”?. He replied in hindi “Hindi nahi aati”.

3. The most common suffix here is ‘a’, e.g.

straight – straighta

2 cup tea – 2 cupa tea

4. Even dogs eat curd rice.

5. In north, names are like Gori Shankar, gauri prasad etc. Here the names are like Kaliraj, kalicharan etc.

6. When there is a ‘t’ in any name, they add ‘h’ to it.

jayant – jayanth

bharat – bharath

7. Here is a culture of adding mystical alphabets after ones’s name, like Mahesh R, Sandeep T etc.

7. Cable connection is of no use here as only tamil channels are broadcasted on cable TV, if anyone wanna watch hindi channels then you need to buy a set up box (Rs.4000).

8. Cognizant navallur office is actually not in chennai, it comes under a district called Chengalpet which is 51 kms from main city.

9. Once we saw a girl in the food court, she was looking and acting like a north indian. My friend became exited and planned to talk to her, but just then we noticed her breakfast and then “dil ke armaan aansuon mein beh gaye”, she was having pongal. (disguise!!)

10.How dare anyone come to chennai : Cognizant Chennai MCity comes under SEZ(special economic zone), swap and transfers from here are not possible.

11. No life after 9 PM.

12. No need to worry for Tsunami, because noone will be left to cry on your grave.

Bye Bye (waiting for banglore, pune, hyderabad update) (more…)

Today I’m gettin bored in office , donno wat to do.. HMMM!!..
So thought i’ll write some posts to my blog..
But lemmi think do i have anythig to write ? NO!!!

Hey, have u seen b’lore roads … They are so bad .. y dont these government ppl improve those..
I think b’lore success has nothing to do with government(s).. So faa all the companies have come to b’lore for bussiness without gov’s help.. Y dont this gov. help IT so that more can come… Gov. is always ready to eat money .. without doing any work.. One thing they dint realise , i.e., if more companies form base in b’lore politicians can eat more money.. But who’ll explain them this fact…

Me Back with one more feature!!! January 10, 2007

Hey, in my last post I forgot to explain one feature.  Incredible phone book in K750i.

If you want to find some name in the phone book you shud kno the exact way u stored the name .. wow!!! Tats not phone book I shud say tats a security feature. Phone book will surely give a hard time, if one of Ur fend tries to find a name …

This feature can be better explained with comparison to nokia phones. Don’t think abt the nokia “low end” phones… new phones in nokia have a feature, which takes even the part of the name you enter. And lists all the names, which contain this, bunch of letters in their name…. Good Feature!!!

For Ex: – if you type “sh”

Names like

1. Ashish

2. Ashwani

3. Shwetha

4. Yogesh

Will be listed

 

But look at the feature in Sony. Only “shwetha” will be listed as I searched of “sh” HUH!!!!

I’m not blaming only K750i for this feature. (Coz it has low-end s/w in disguise of high-end s/w)

If you think I’m being unfair for Sony… Lets take Sony new models. K810i.. (Cool cyber shot phone) latest one.

This amazing phone book is retained in this new model also…. Wow!! Now tats incredible.   I salute Sony for giving this exciting phone book as gift for their so-called ”high end” handset users….

BTW don’t assume I like nokia and hate Sony.. I believe nokia is cheating people by selling handsets at higher cost. What I feel is Sony should  enhance its features , to server Sony lovers better.

Sony Ericsson Features (wow!!!!)

If you have time please spend some time to go thru the amazing features of my new SONY Ericsson K750i …

features of my socalled “high end” handset K750i.

If ur transfering something via bluetooth , just dont do any other work on ur mobile. keep looking the transfer happening. Or U mit want to do something else on ur mobile.. Hmmm..sorry !!! U can’t do anything other than watching .. one biiig fiture of sony ericsson.

As now u’ve bought the “high end” handset , wishing to save lot of messages in different folders (wishes, teasers , my love etc. ) .. Even i like that , I thought i could do all those with this K750i… OOOOOps.. max. msg u can store is 200…. Ok i guess you’ll compromise max 200 in inbox .. wait a minute i dint reveal another secret (dont tel this to neone..) when i said 200 i meant complete message storage.. not only inbox… so max u can store 200 including sent items , drafts , saved items and ofcourse inbox (Nice No.. !!!!

Ur driving bike with head set on ur ears , listening FM. Now try changing the channel by pressing button on headset …… Huh!!! U can’t .. this feature is not provided in SONY .. (Leave it .. it seems to be a biiiiig feature .. mit be costly .. ) .. But y in nokia (even in 3K/- handset) .. Now all you have to do is.. take out ur handset from pocket , bag or whereever u’ve kept that .. and change the channel ………. Long live sony ericsson.. !!

I have long list of frens , so on special occassions i need to message them all to wish .. So wat do i do now…. yep! I have to add all the numbers in a single message and send .. (Group messaging) … Hey , wat happened to my handset .. its dying….. the so called high end handset which does so many b**l sh*t things faster , not doing this simple job.. No keys wil work .. not even switch off!!!!!! wow!! amazing feature ( bug ) .. so u’ve to wait till mobile comes back to sober state after heavy drink.. which approx will take 10 min!! (believe me) … Now u mit wonder wats so special in group message.. now tats wat i want to ask sony people who designed this high end handset.. again hats off!!!

One day i went to a movie with frens .. i had to battle out for 4 tickets.. I couldn’t check my mobile in that crowd …. Tat day i thought i lost my mobile almost…. later i checked my mobile phone for messages or missed calls.. HMMM.. i thought loosing mobile was better than suffering.. !!! Yeah!! this is a strange problem.. I had 4 missed calls and 4 messages .. (all those wil be there in activity menu.. which pops up to curse us..) .. tats all i cud see.. when i tried to check who has given missed calls or sent messages … mobile got hanged.. (remember my last paragraph.. even switch off wont work when sony is in panic.) I had to take battery out and replace it.. thank god it got switched on.. But i tried to check who has given missed call in activity menu.. ? again mobile got hanged .. (again replace battery) .. it happened 2 more times..

again i took off my hat!! to salute sony ericsson…..(I accept this happens with many handsets , but i can’t forgive this happening in 13K handsets) ..

I faced this problem (4 missed call problem), 3-4 times in few months.. But tat made me find out a solution for this bug… when ever you see 4 missed calls in the activity menu.. (dont panic.. dont call ur parents , frens .. start praying god.. as u witnessed this amazing feature by sony…) press back key and go to call history check all missed calls …. Mobile will hang if u try to check ur 4 missed alls directly in activity menu… or try to delete the entry directly… Yepppieee!!! we are finding solutions to use sony features !!! god news for sony ppl..

Still I have lot of more features …!!! I will definitely fill this page up.. sometimes later..

if you want to know more abt any off the features of sony ericsson.. do mail me to this address varunbhat@inbox.com…. Believe me sony ericsson is full of features.. !!!!
