I was on the fence about buying a TV since I don’t watch it that much, but during their recent sale, I came across anΒ offer from Snapdeal on Vu TVs thatΒ was too good a deal to pass by, so I grabbed the Vu 40β€³ TV(aka 40k16).

Have you ever seen the “contact forms” that are present on a lot of companies offering services such as Broadband, Telephone Lines, cars, bikes et al? I have and I’m sick of seeing them. Why do these dumbasses put these forms?

Couple of days ago, I tweeted thisΒ little message. July 9, 2007 is a red letter day for me - for that was the day I started my career as a working professional. As I tweeted that, I was greeted over IM by few of my friends and colleagues. It didn’t strike me much as soon as I tweeted, but few hours later I was just amazed as to how fast time has gone by - and how far I’ve come. To think, I applied for this position as an afterthought (“should I really ? Well.."). That got me into nostalgia mode.
