Good and Bad Procrastination

My hacker friend cool Winston who works in Mascon sent me this link
The article was so addictive and I got hyperlinked from every article ....

Some of Paul's articles :-
I liked this line "If you're the sort of person who would like to solve the money problem once and for all instead of working for a salary for 40 years, then a startup makes sense."

Paul's claim to fame was the acquisition of is start-up Viaweb by Yahoo for 49 million $.

Pappu Kalani : Hero of Ulhasnagar

Suresh alias Pappu Kalani, MLA, Ulhasnagar lobbied and saved the illegal homes in Ulhasnagar... 1,00,000 middle class junta saved!!
I think he is the first guy who tried to do something for this tribe.... there will always be politicos who will fight for Dalits, Zoppadpattis, SC/ST, Advasis, poor & oppressed coz of their vote bank...
Though I don't agree that illegal constructions must be saved but in a city where FSI is 1.2 and Slums who contribute nothing in taxes to the government or municipality could be regularized then these middle class dwellings can also be saved.

I wonder what will happen in Delhi now, will they cite Ulhasnagar examples and regularize it ??

Also Pappu Kalani has got himself virtually elected for the next elections.

Mumbai Mirror writes about da man.

Blog of the man who saved thousand lives in Gujarat Mayhem

Rajdeep Sardesai
Blog :
I like this on his blog...
"There have been several moments of self-doubt in this period -- hey, which 40-year-old Maharashtrian was ever successful at a start up? (the few who probably are reside in Silicon Valley). But there have been the fun moments -- from choosing the office site to deciding on names for programmes. Sure, I miss the lazy afternoons in Parliament's central hall, talking politics over endless cups of chai with 'sources', knowing there was always someone in office who would hold the fort. "
Maharashtrains and Mallus should start taking more risks, learn the game from Panjus, Mardu's n Gr8 Gujjus ....
I hope he does some kickass stuff and sincerely wish him all the best in his new venture with CNN-IBN.

Laura - Skoda’s new car

Laura - Skoda’s new car
Here is an excerpt from Anil Thakraney column in the Sunday Mid-Day.

(All ladies to press ‘exit’ at this point, you have been warned!) Skoda’s launched a new car in the Indian market, and it goes by the name of Laura. All very well… new brands of cars keep crowding our streets all the time (adding to the collisions with humans), I have a slightly different issue, and it’s gotta do with the brand name. I wonder how the chauffeurs, garage mechanics and indeed some sethjis are gonna pronounce that name. Hmmm.

Anil is cool!!

I read this first at a Famous online Blog.

Tech Group Reaches to Arabs ..inspired by apna TiE.

RED HERRING writes about TechWadi and Minah Ventures, a Silicon Valley group inspired by what TiE did to promote the Indian Entrepreneurs and Start-ups.

    How to Sitiee Bajaooo!!

    Whistling is a funny skill: folks who can whistle, wonder how anyone could have a problem with it. Folks who can’t, wonder how anyone could ever produce such a sound. For those of you who can’t, consider learning–a quick, loud, penetrating whistle has many useful applications and can be mastered with relative ease.

    Intro: Before you begin
    Method 1: Fingered whistle
    Method 2: Fingerless whistle

    Shamelessly copied for the benefit for those cant Sitiee Bajao!!!  :))

    As for me I can whistle with my thumbs , index fingers, lil finger... but mostly I whistle with my left hand lil finger and Index finger for the loudest and high pitch whistle.

    Jatra @ I.C.Colony Feast, Borivli

    I've being going to the Immaculate Conception Church Feast at IC Colony since I was a kid, nothing much has changed its the same wax candle, chana, sweets, housie games, Ferris wheel, magic shows, Maut ka Kua, Aapti Bombs, Loud whistles...Only thing that has changed is the number of old Goan residents who have either migrated to NZ, Canada, Australia or back to Goa..

    I went today in the morning as I know this place won’t have place for even ants in the evening. The two-day festival is held every second Saturday and Sunday of December is all about faith, shopping, food, entertainment and music.

    Sachin breaks world record 35 Test Centuries.

    Bombay Bomber

    I repeat what I had posted earlier on Sachin...

    "When you are told about God, you question its (unsure if it's his/her) existence until you drop dead and meet it in heaven, (or get a glance from hell). Or when there just seems no other explanation for events that conjure up so many shades of emotions yet unknown, that you come to accept that there is something so magical, that you cannot explain it!

    Sachin is God!!!

    Sales Pitch Bombay Style

    The art of a selling and marketing is something which you can pick up from the streets on Bombay if you keep your eyes and ears open, you don't have to go to any IIM, Harvard, Wharton, B,C or IIPM for it... 
    There are sales men and women in Bombay in all shapes,sizes and pitches, I've listed my favorites ones do feel free to add to the list.
    1. Thanda-meetha coool drinks..... trrrrrrrrrrrrring trrrrrrrrrrrrrrring  at Bombay Central station
    2.  hawkers outside Churchgate subways selling 40 Rupees wala Bermudas and T-shirts  yelling "Gira.. Gira... dekho bhai're wondering kya gira, purse??  WTF kya gira??? hawkers in chorus.... dekho bhai Bhav gira.... wonly 40... chaalishhhh..40!!!
    3. In Khao Gully (Azad maidan), the dosa wala and his tag team partner literly pulls you to the stall doing his pitch with a normal Tam accent dosa,idli,vada butter, Chinese, cheese.... then his partner responds by doing the ting ting ting on the Dosa Stove.
    4. Nepali boys in Nariman point working for Chinese stalls "Aaao bhai Chinese... sheekan/vheez.. fulltoo milegega... one by two milegaa... laaalipop "
    5. Koli females in Borivali fish market, they give you the raunchy smile and just say "Mavraaa gya... you are too scared to ignore the lady with the koyta...and you ending up buying a small wata of kolimbi"
    6. the most fuckall salesmen are in Alfa (Irla) these chuts think they are doing some major sewa to mankind you can actually see the agony in their face when you ask him to show him different models of Phones and Mobiles.
    7. "ginge...............ginge........ ginge..........khaasi bhagao.... timepass da vry nasal voice, is a sound which you hear in the corner of the train compartment, its the Ginger Goliwala who sells the Ginger Goli for 50 p, he is the coolest of the lot.
    8. Then you have the Kulfiwala who only emerges after 9 pm, at first you can never make out what he is saying  but guys in Bombay can recognize that sound among a zilllion files.... His sound is something like "fiiiiiiiiiao"     "kufiooooooooooooo"... again in a deep pitched nasal sound but this time its a Sholapuri Ghat.
    9. Then Bhandiwalis........."Vaaaasioyoooooooo... Vaaaasiyoooooooooooooo"... this is the most annoying sound, you know its them when the dogs in your building start barking and running for cover, mostly enterprising Gujju ladies they are responsible for fooling our parents into exchanging our faded jeans for some stupid plate or Aluminum  vessel . ... I've never till date understood what the Vassssiooooooo meant.
    10. The most common and one of my favorite the Bhaayia kelawala's favorite pitch " Kela khao sehat banao.... he gives your the smirky double meaning look"
    11. The guy at the Churchgate Sulabh Loo pitching the number 2 option when the Susu slots are all full. "Boss jaaneka hai.. Ek Rupiya, he gestures with his 2 fingers udhar khali hai..."

    Wonder who needs to be taught??

    Shiv Sena says ?We?ll teach the Biharis how to live in Mumbai?, I wonder who will teach these guys what real Maharashtrian culture is??

    I will never vote for the party which bashed up the BCCI office and our most precious Award the 1983 World Cup.

    Mumbai Mirror's story
    Shiv Sena says..

    A small fight over a bucket of water between Biharis and Marathi speaking student lead to this chaos... Wonder what's in store next The shitting rights on the tracks?? or the Right to pee on Tilak Bridge or the Right to scratch at VT station??

    No ones talks about the slums, the crowd in the trains, the fcukall condition of our trains, the BEST buses which don't stop at the stops, the cockroach rickshaws which have infested the city, the dug up roads, the open manholes, people shitting all around the city....

    Eureka! 2006, IIT Bombay

    For those who came in late MyZus was the winner of the Business Plan Competition in 2000, IITB and Kresit are one of the best things to have happened to entrepreneurs. IITB provides all the initial startup requirements office space, compy's and other basic infrastructure, access to VC's and Tech resources and mainly it gives your Start-up the brand IITB, In return IITB takes a small percent of the equity for all the initial handholding and incubation.

    If you are fed up of working for companies where your feel you're being wasted or generally fedup with the shady politics and general sucking-up that goes on, I think you should give Entrepreneurship a try, I genuinely think there is no better way to do a start-up other than Eureka at IITB.

    He is the man who taught me not to pick up "Feke huye paise", Waqt pe aaneka as an usoool, Gambling if the cause is good is right,  Giving life for dost even if its means doing a coin trick, 786 is a lucky number, Wearing a dress made of little light bulbs is cool, Wearing a 16 KG silver chain in your left-hand to weed out crime is right, Exiting Politics is the right things, Clearing your debt is right, Getting drunk and making a fool of yourself is perfectly okay, walking to SiddhiVinayak Temple is not publicity.
    Working 18 hours a day for 7 days a week, You definitely rock!!!
    My salaam to you, hope you get well soon.
