Bored in the blizzard in Boston; I was inspired by my IRC friend ‘Plazma’ constantly making fun of my reverse dns of scrye.net I came up with this pretty neat hack.

My Review of ‘The Orange Hangover’ and ‘How I Braved Anu Aunty and Co-Founded a Million Dollar Company’
I got two books to read this week. While I got ‘The Orange Hangover’ from a friend, the second one, was a sporadic purchase at midnight from Flipkart. Now I’m not going to delve into the circumstances and my emotions at the time of purchase, so, I’ll just cut the crap and go straight to my review.
The Orange Hangover is a novel by Rahul Saini, who also wrote ‘the bestselling book called Those small lil things’ (as per the back cover). It is about Rishabh Suri, an architect who is forced to quit his job and return to his village. The book talks about his transition from a city lad to a guy without a job living with his mother and how he deals with this. And just when I thought that this book was a semi-intellectual work on self discovery, it brings forth a twist that suddenly transitions this book to a crime thriller sort. While I did enjoy, the first portion of the book, I thought the crime thriller portion of the story was not that great. Also, at times, the author intently bollywoodized certain portions, which was also a case with the other book. I’m not sure whether this is the current trend or something. But overall, it was an interesting read (which also shows some social issues such as child labor) and I would recommend it as a good weekend read.
The second book that I read was How I Braved Anu Aunty and Co-Founded a Million Dollar Company by Varun Agarwal. It is his own story as he evaded the ‘deathly traps of 9 to 5 jobs’ enforced upon him by his family (and Anu aunty of course) and went ahead and created a startup. The writing style is pretty much like how a twenty something guy would speak and it somehow reminded me of Delhi Belly (not that the book is even slightly related to that movie), maybe because of the language used. Anyhow, it was quite a fun read and I finished the book within a day. I’m sure that aspiring entrepreneurs would be inspired by reading this book, and the author gives certain tips as well at times on starting your own company. All in all, it is definitely worth a read for those who are looking for some light reading.

Human mind is one crazy piece of shit!
Shit happens. You can’t really help it. It just happens.
Well, what are you supposed to do during those difficult circumstances? I have heard a lot of people saying “you gotta move on,dude!”. That’s easier said than done. From my little experiences, you really can’t ‘just move on’. You need an escape plan.
That’s my little secret of doing it. I just focus on some other stuff so that I don’t have enough time to think about the past. It could be learning new stuff, painting, writing and at times, even watching different TV series like Friends or Dexter. And, I just hope that when am done, I stop worrying anymore. Just like that.
It is absolutely right that time is a great healer. You just have to find something to do in the meantime.

The iPhone 5 (parody)
Well, personally I love what Apple has done with the iPhone 5 by making the screen taller so that you can still use the iPhone with your single hand even though it has a 4 inch screen. I haven’t used it so I cant tell for sure if it’s comfortable, but everyone on my timeline who bought one loves it. But hey, who doesn’t love a god humorous take on something.
PS: This might be disturbing for hardcore Apple fans.
