Jodhpur the Sun city..

Been in Jodhpur for 4 days visiting the city on job(Doing field audits of Airtel digital tv engineers).

What a city!!

History plastered all around!

Imagine going in to a home which is 500 years old but stil rock solid!

How many generations called the same place their home.

How many death and birth how many marriages and birthdays the rock solid home must have seen!

Where as the RCC buildings life span is just 125 years the red stone buildings have no expiry dates!!

The Mehran garh fort the Jaswant thada!!

Mind blowing!

Dear Sun city i shall be back shortly..not on work but on leave...Love..

Slumdog Makes History at Oscars!!

History made at the Academy awards 2009.
Never before  an Indian themed film got 8 Oscars!
When Rahman was singing Jai ho to the Academy audience it seemed a scene from The Filmfare awards the local version of the Oscars.
To all the critics of Slumdog..
Grow up...accept the winner and eat humble pie!
It takes a British to show us the real Mumbai...
Danny has done to Indian cinema what all back biting stars couldn't do...
The feeling is great i feel happy for the cast and cruse of Slumdog...But do not subscribe to the view of the Mumbai film industry say that the Oscar format is different.
The Truth is a good film is a good film Period..

Do you believe this??

Source:Press TV Iran...

The Mumbai raids were planned by a banned Bangladeshi militant group called Harkat-ul-Mujahideen, Pakistan's 
the Dawn newspaper quoted unnamed sources as saying on Friday. 

Based on the report, the Bangladesh-based outfit had hired Pakistanis to carry out the attacks on the Indian financial hub. 

The newspaper further said that the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), which was tasked with carrying out the probe, believed that at least one of the attackers has been a Bangladeshi national. 

The FIA findings suggest that some parts of the terror plan may have been devised in Dubai, while raising the possibility of local Indian support for the attacks. 

Pakistani officials have not confirmed or deny the report, which leaked to the media despite India's frequent calls on Islamabad to share its findings with New Delhi through 'diplomatic channels'. 

The developments come after, India on January 5 provided Islamabad with data from satellite phones used by the attackers. 

On Thursday, India accused Pakistan's Intelligence agency (ISI) of having close links with the perpetrators of the Mumbai terror attacks. 

"The perpetrators planned, trained and launched their attacks from Pakistan, and the organizers were and remain clients and creations of the Inter-Services Intelligence," Indian Foreign Secretary Shivshankar Menon said. 

Indian authorities have expressed frustration over what they describe as Islamabad's 'slow response' in arresting and prosecuting those allegedly involved in the case. 

Islamabad has voiced outrage over New Delhi accusing Pakistani state agencies of involvement in the acts of terror as well as its repeated hints at a military option. 

Email marketing a menace or boon?

In a world where the unsolicited e mails are considered an evil it was a mail with similar credentials which fetched me my job??
My listing with Monster made my profile available to the head hunters and the clan took my CV to the interested clients.To my luck i got a call from the top telecoms company of India for a job!!

Cool isn't it?
So not all unsolicited mails are harmful??
Who are the guys who frame and plan these mails?
Does it help any serious company or its the domain of the fraudsters selling illegal copy cat Viagra??
What will you think of an email marketing company which has over 15,000 customers and 100,000 users. The product is used primarily by small businesses but also has a number of Fortune 500 companies like Bank of America, Ford, Nissan, Super 8 Motel, and International Paper, and political campaigns like Barack Obama '08. The company is based in Durham, NC and was founded by Ryan Allis and Aaron Houghton in 2003.

I thought its a waste of time and no body will notice email newsletter.
