The team behind Firefox3 wants to create history for the most software downloaded in 24 hours. They want to achieve this during the Download Day, although the date is yet to be announced. If you want to be a part of this record and wish to make a difference then all you need to do is take a pledge here.

Looking forward for FF3.

~ Soha is So-hot ~

Soha Ali Khan the daughter of the Mansoor Ali Khan, the 9th Nawab of Pataudi, definitely looks Sexy & Hot as the cover girl on the May edition of Maxim India.

Why 'm I writing about Soha? I was wondering how come there hasn't been any voice or objection towards her or the publication in general from the orthodox quarters of her community. These people caused so much of hue & cry over Sania, sometime last year when she wore skirt & T while playing Tennis. One group even went to an extent of issuing a fatwa against Sania.

I feel the few news channels are responsible to a certain extent for creating controversies our trivial stuff in the country to keep their TRP ratings high.

~ Run Maadi Run ~

Even though I had a lot of enthusiasm to take part in the current edition of World10K event, was very lazy to go out there and register. That changed yesterday afternoon when Karma, manager & friend, called up and asked if I was interested in taking part. I didn't have to think twice, I just said Yes!

Thanks! Karma for doing the needful.

Am gonna run for Bangalore Cares and above else for myself, to kick in the lazy factor within me. I am taking in the majja run. Hope it will be fun, catch you all @ the event on Sunday.

~ Dry Day ~

~ On a DRY day: Tender berry, Water and Green Tea ~

Normally fridays just pass by, you hardly witness the time. But yesterday was very different form the usual fridays; it seemed as though time was frozen.

After a boring day, decided to unwind with Rags @ Le Rock Cafe, off Brigade Road, Rest House Road. Half-way through my journey I realise today is a Dry Day or rather it has been Dry Day for the past two days, due to elections/polls. It didn't strike me or rags earlier, then we decided to do some shopping.

We decided to have our dinner and Rags was very keen on having Thai food, as he wanted to keep track of his chopstick skills. The nearest restaurant we could find was Bamboo Shoots, on Museum Rd. While we walked from Brigade Rd to Shoots, we noticed most of the drinking holes and restaurants were closed; very unusual for a friday evening in Bangalore.

Here you go with our Dry Day evening experience. Finally, we when reached our destination @ 21:25hrs, there were so many people in the lobby of Museum Inn, as it has 2 restaurants - Bamboo Shoot & Angiti - and the pub Tavern attached to the lodging facility. When we spoke to the manager & reserved a table for 2, he promised us one in 45 mins. Under normal circumstances I would have negated the idea of waiting for 45 mins to have dinner, but today was an exception as Rags wanted to taste some spicy Thai food & keep tab on his chopstick skills.

While I killed my time speaking with friends on phone, listening to Katatonia on my pod, watching expressions of various ppl in the lobby, admiring beauty @ times; Rags was busy sitting and solving Sudoku. It was 22:15hrs, when my patience was running out. I called upon Rags to find out if the Manager is even aware of us waiting. He checks with him once again and tells me that he has promised us a table in another 10 mins. I was like WTF, we have to wait an hour to just a get a table. Yes, it was our fault, we didn't have any plans to be here in the first instance & so we didn't have our reservations.

Rags was trying to pacify me, saying he is keeping himself busy with doing Sudoku. I was like dude, if I wanted to keep myself busy then why would I come to a restaurant and be occupied with something? Then we managed to solve his Sudoku, which he was trying for the past 20 mins :P. Still no sign of tasting our Thai delicacy, then I decided to talk to the manager myself and he assured me a table would be given in 5 mins. We thought it would be wise to place our orders, before we occupy our table as they take time to serve us. At last @ 22:35hrs after an hour & something we managed to get a table. The food was great, enjoyed it. Rags was happy with his chopstick experience, except that he would have preferred wooden chops for plastics :).

Overall the day for me has been boring and very DRY. Thanks to the polls which is 7 hrs from now. I am gonna definitely cast my vote and hope the rest of you do.
