Gur Nihal Foods

After spending more than 24 hours at home, and having chawal-kadhi for 3 straight meals, I suggested to Bijou, we go out for our dinner today. Ruling out any junk food consumption, Bijou suggested we go to a Punjabi place he new from the last lunch he had with Anurag and his TeamBHp mates. If the approach road was any indicator of how the place would be, I wouldn't even have lokoed that way. But, the bumpy ride was misleading and so was the ambience. The place looked like a roadside dhaba. There was a Punjabi Auntiji standing next to the entrance. That kind of assured me that the cooking would be supervised and there were lesser chaces of a chole with sambar masala being served.
We ordered a Punjabi Chicken and some plain parathas. The punjabi chicken was well cooked and just sufficiently spicy. But not much Punjabi from the ones served in other restaurant. How I wish we had tried the achari chicken. The parathas were freshly made and served hot but not rotis. I think rotis were mass produced and the couple we took were cold. I also missed tandoor roti. Next came lassi....sweet and just cold enough. Lassi is never to be had chilled. Only beer is to be served chilled. After having the lassi, I wouldn't have liked anything else to spoil the equilibrium my digestive system had achieved. But I was still a little hungry and there was a hand written poster on the wall anouncing Sarson ka Saag and Makki ki Roti. So we had some freshly made saag and a roti each. The Makki ki rotis were also freshly made and most importantly having come after the lassi, they didn't spoil the mood.
I will have a cup of warm milk now before I go to bed. It has been a feast i must say.

P.S.: The dinner cost us about 200 bucks

4 Seasons

The dinner tonight was at '4 Seasons' Madhapur. Right across the road was my old office (the erstwhile Satyam Computers), it was literally a trip down the memory lane. This restaurant, on the second floor is nothing much to talk about in the name of ambiance. Having said that, they have certainly put their attention in the right place - the food. Ours was a simple 3 course dinner - Tomato Soup, Chicken Malai Kabab & Chicken Biryani. Being one of those 'nice' places where everyone wants to go straight from their office, this place is always crowded (and definitely on a Friday evening). If you go there with a group of more than 2, be prepared to wait, wait really long, argue and even fight for a place.
But once you are there, be ready to eat one of the finest chicken you may have ever laid your hands on (or dug your teeth into). They have all sorts of chicken preparations. After my reduced appetite over the last couple of years (surprisingly after my marriage ;-) ), I couldn't take another starter, but if I could, I could have something Lebanese. The restaurant has Lebanese, Mughlai and Indian preparations. The biryani wasn't something something great, but the chicken pieces in it were really soft, well cooked and well marinated. The biryani took eons to come, but the wait was worth it. I wish I could adjust a dessert somewhere but we were full up to the brim and happy with the food.
So the next time you folks want to enjoy a good meal, visit '4 Seasons' - vegetarians, get a life.

An evening well spent...

Last evening me and Shveta visited the city. It was the first time we were in an explorer mood since we shifted base to Hyderabad. Unlike Pune, which was our last bastion, Hyderabad has fewer places worth visiting at an hour's drive. By 'places' I mean places like Mulshi, Lonavla, Sinhgad and places like that where you can find spot just to sit and relax in the company of nature. So we decided just to head straight to some place in the city and just have an evening exporing the place.
We decided to take the train to Begumpet and explore that part of Hyderabad. Although Begumpet is mostly to do with shopping for pearls, huge apparel malls, Westside, Landmark and other big stores. After disembarking the MMTS train at Begumpet, we walked past the newly built flyover, the ITC kakatiya and reached Landmark. It is really difficult to walk past a bookstore if you really dig books or movies. So we entered Landmark and spent a good hour and half there, looking for books and DVDs. Came out with 2 books, a Telugu learning guide and the Times food guide to Hyderabad/Secunderabad. We also bought an audio CD, Sacred Chants volume 3 by Kosmic music. There were so many other books and music we wanted to buy, but we were running out of time and we wanted to make it till Hyderabad Central, have our dinner and catch the last train home.
By the time we got out of Landmark, it was already 8 at night. As we walked towards Hyderabad central, we entered Home Store - Future group's furniture and furnishing store. After ogling at all the expensive furniture that we could buy if we had all the money in the world and a place of our own, we moved to e-zone, the electronic appliance section within this store. There was an offer going on, where they were selling a DVD player for Rs. 1999 only. My 5.1 channel speaker system was lying idle at home, there were movies getting downloaded on the internet, there was good music to be heard, what more reason did I need to buy a DVD player! So we grabbed one and by 8.45 PM made our way into Hyderabad Central.
We had decided not to spend any time shopping here but only have our dinner and dash for the railway station. We went to the Noodle Bar restaurant on the ground floor. It is a nice place with good ambience. Both of us having sore throats, were weary of air conditioned chill. We requested for a table that wasn't directly under the duct. The waiter guided us to one such cozy corner in the restaurant. They were serving a 4 course emperor meals that consisted of an appetizer or a soup, a main dish, rice or noodles and dessert. We liked the idea of placing an order on a paper that has tick boxes in front of every menu item. We were given these papers and pencils and left alone to make a decision. we only had to tick what option we wanted for the 4 courses and hand over the paper to the waiter. We ordered some vegeterian manchow soup and a potion of vegetable spring rolls to begin with. Both these dishes were served hot and pretty quickly. Although we shared a single serving of soup, it was just the quantiy for both of us and boy was it tasty! The spring rolls were one of the best have had in a long time (if i was more confident of my memory, I would have said 'best ever'). we then got ourselves some Chicken manchurian and chicken hakka noodles.Now this was not the best part. Especialy the chicken pieces. We bth have had better chicken in Hyderabad House. Just as the initial impression was beginning to fade out, the Noddle Bar sprung their last surprise on us. The best and the last impression came in the form of the dessert, called 'Darsaan'. This is by far the most unique dessert I have ever tasted. It is fried dry flat noodles, tossed in honey and sesame seeds. This last impression of the restaurant was a lasting one. Me and Shveta, we both loved this dessert and so repented that the noodles and the chicken (both not so good) had not left enough space for this fantastic delicacy. Although Times food guide does not rate the Noodle Bar very well, the food, the quick service and the dessert won our hearts. Our dinner for 2 came to about 500 rupees and all of it worth the money (almost). definitely recommendable if you are not much fussy about visitng a restaurant in a crowded mall.
The times food guide looks like a neat way of picking up joints to visit on week ends. Although the city doesn't have much for the eyes, I hope once our bike comes, we can visit most of the restaurants in the guide and let our tongue do the talking :-)!!

The right half of brain

It took me a bit of googling to figure out that it is the right half of brain that is to do with imagination and artistic ability. So far removed I am from this part of life that I don't even remember which part of brain we use for it.
I recall a conversation I had at work couple of days ago. I was making a point there, that as we are trying to get better at communication, we are getting worse at expression. We may be able to write a concise email about all the things we need to get done for a project. But we hardly know to write a letter (or say an email) to our friends recalling our good old days in school. One of my colleague was of the opinion that the younger generation is smarter and faster than we are. But smarter and faster at what? Math? Computers? Science? How many of the children have a passion today? How many of them waste hours and days at painting? or may be swimming? The younger generation is getting increasingly left-brain-centric. Very logical and calculative in thinking. But the imagination does not have wings. The emotions are calculated. Ask a kid to imagine a sky in Pink colour and be assured to see a confused face. The empathy one could have for a fellow living creature has been narrowed down to some soft corner only for friends and family.
I have a young cousin back in Goa who cried when one of the buffalo in our stable died. Stupid it may sound to anyone, she felt the pain the buffalo's calf went through. She is not exceptionally well at drawing, but she has the patience to sit and try a Rangoli. She likes to have pets at home and maintains her own patch of garden. All at the age of 12. Many children need to be given a project in school to know names of some of the common garden plants. Where does this difference come from?
In my opinion, this difference comes from the way of life that we have chosen for ourselves. If we make a list of 10 most important things in our lives today, I bet 8 of them will be 'purchasable'. Our happiness, fulfillment, accomplishment are all achievable through that extra money we always want to earn. It has been a long time since I have heard someone dedicate his entire life to something other than his job. I sincerely hope I am in the wrong circles and there is still an increasing number of people who use & develop the right side of their brain.

Mid life crisis.. is it?

I am just back from a day trip to Mulshi - a scenic place near Pune. After returning from the UK, I spent most of my last 2 months at home recovering from the knee injury. The mood is a little upbeat.

But off late I have been observing a change in mood as the Sunday Sun moves westwards. An anxiety starts creeping in. Mostly to do with work. What is in store on Monday? Will tomorrow be painful? Is the Manager going to throw some new issue at me? Am I missing a deadline? Lot of such anxious thoughts that make my Sunday evening rather nervous. As I wake up on Monday morning, I am completely exhausted by these thoughts instead of being fresh from a weekend. I have been trying to analyse what this could be.

It appears that most of these thoughts crop up from a kind of insecurity or may be lack of confidence. I am scared of being pointed out as a loser, someone who did not perform. Or I fear I may be betraying my boss's expectations. There is always a struggle to be right - never to be wrong, never to be looked at as an idiot and most importantly to be trusted for commitment and sincerity. There is always somewhere a doubt that fingers may point at me today. Have I thought this through? Is this going to work the way I think it should? Do I know enough??!!

Enough, sufficiency, optimum are unquantifiable at the junction of life I am in. Do I earn enough? Am I responsible enough? Do I behave like a Manager or still a fresher? Should I be carefree or thoughtful and immaculate? Should I buy a bike and do road trips or be more sane and buy a house and settle down? I am not confident of the world at my workplace. It seems to be too strict to pardon a mistake. So I am scared. But is it really? Every decision I make, every mail I write, every conversation I have at work seems to decide whether I stay or I am thrown out. I keep thinking if 'this thing I am doing' could make me lose my job. And then the next thing I know is I am thinking of what I would do if I am not doing this? I start thinking of alternate careers, possible business ventures, where the money would come from and weired things like that. And all this does is takes the air out of my today.

I haven't been living in present since a long time. I am either deliberating on the past - should I have worked harder and become a doctor, should I not have quit Banking; Or I am deliberating on my future - should I start my own business or become a teacher, will I be able to move to Goa 5-6 years down the line, so on and so forth. Does it help me in anyway to make the decision now? Hell no! Last week I deliberately tried to keep these thoughts out of my mind. I have been quite successful. I am sure I will weed this out over a period of time.

Is this mid-life crisis? Whatever it is, I have observed that the best way to overcome this is to involve yourself in other activities. They could be any of your hobbies or simply socializing. I also avoid office talk as much as possible after work (and sometimes even at work)! I am also spending more time keeping in touch with friends and relatives, reading literary stuff - something that is not about business or statistics. I try to read Marathi books, poems, short stories and stuff that is pure pleasure. As of now this seems to be the right path...lets see where it takes me!

Community Supported Agriculture

Most products have the cost of failure built into the price of the product. For example, a film. When a film gets made, there are so many things at stake, that the all these risks are covered by the premium on the ticket. If a film ticket was prices simply by dividing the cost + profit by the number of people watching, it would be pretty cheap. Or consider for example, the price of a car. The insurance premium that the manufacturer pays is built into the cost of the car. Or say a doctor, who conducts very risky operations get paid highly...and now you ask what's the point??

The point is, this doesn't happen with a farmer.A farmer faces all the vagries of nature or monsoon. Alll his risks are unmeasurable and unpredictable. But does he get to decide his pricing? Why does market not behave perfectly when it comes to agriculture? Why doesn't the theory of high risk - high return apply to agriculture? How does a farmer hedge his risks then is the main question!
The answer as I found today lies in Community Supported Agriculture. This is a fantastic system wherein buyers share the risk with a farmer. They are participants in the farming process economically and hence emotionally. If the monsoon isn't good in a year, and the farmer isnt able to grow enough tomatoes, the buyers will have to forgo the amount but may be compesated by a good winter and receive abundent peanuts. But since the risk is spread, it becomes insignificant to every individual. Morover, the farmer can concentrate on growing quality stuff rather than having to worry about selling it. There are various flexible models around the worls for CSA. Just google it up and its an interesting read. Looks like my next career move ;-)

Film piracy funding terror

"Film piracy funding terror: US thinktank"

I have read about this many times before. Since the time I was convinced, I stopped buying pirated films and music from the street.
Have a read.

Friday, June 12, 2009

Good read

If this is unbiased media, it is worth the read and raises many questions - here goes

Thursday, June 11, 2009

Could this work?

I am thinking of a business idea.
We have small shops all throughout India selling computer hardware. Along with this they sell or give pirated windows OS and MS Office for free. This is no doubt illegal an the only reason MS is mum about this is probably because of their business model. They would like the world to be dependent on them so that most applications are developed for Windows. They can anytime enforce the anti-piracy crusade making people buy their OS.
Is it possible to create a niche for oneself in this market by promoting open source software? Most of the home users tend to use multi-media, web-browser and office tools like word editor and spreadsheet. With the wide gamut of Linux flavours available now and companies like Open Office spending a lot of time and talent on development, I think is it very much possible. This can even be coupled with user training in these areas. Spreading the usage of open source software among the lay users and small business users can create a strong base for the development of open source software.
Even if one such enterprise opens shop in every town and city in India, it can then have a community based support system. A common knowledge pool can be created to support existing and upcoming players. This community can then even churn out training material, methodology, support strategy for open source software. They can be also a authentic feedback system for companies developing open source software.
Till the time open source does not come into the public domain and remains the interest area of the geeks, it's spread and hence growth will be limited. The day my wife is forced to use a laptop with Ubuntu...would be the dawn of a new era!

Cricket ...eh?

I..sorry 'we' ...are going to watch a T20 match between Bharat and Bangladesh at Trent Bridge stadium here in Nottingham. When I told this to someone in office, he asked me if I play cricket? I just said No and skipped the discussion.
Later on when I thought more on this, Cricket to me was more like watching a movie. One doesn't care what is happening behind the scene and all that matters in entertainment. What matters is the end result...winning or losing!
There are actors...good and bad just like players, specialists of batting and bowling like heroes of action or comedy.
Update: This post was initiated yesterday when we were about to leave for the match. The match was fantastic, but the second half towards the climax got boring :)

Insider special

Many people want to know about Satyam. How the fiasco was crafted? Did employees have any idea about something this big happening say about 2 years ago? Everyone wants to know a bit more than what comes in newspapers and Dalal street portals. So here is a ready reckoner to that extra bit you should know to gain attention at dinner tables and tea time chats...
Folks knew nothing. Everyone was pretty happy that they were employed by a company that was counted in the top 4 or top 5 IT giants of the country. It was like just another job. I quit Satyam not because I smelt something. I quit because I smelt money in my new job and it was a bigger machine, more disciplined and a bigger brand. The only sign that one may notice in restrospect is employees being without work for long period and still not being woken up from their slumber. But nobody noticed it then. It was all hunky dorry.
Even the directors and members of the top management claim oblivion. But in my opinion it is similar to Musharraf claiming oblivion to terrorism in Pakistan. Being unaware of such a big scam when you are in a position to have access to all the information you want is I think a challenge to ones intelligence and intentions. To put it in more naive terms - how would you feel if your 100 cc bike starts running at 140 KmpH? Wouldn't you suspect some foul play? When one is in the driver's position, he is completely aware of the capabilities of the machine <organisation>. When indicators show something beyond capacity, they should be questioned.But did Mr. Raju do it out of malified intentions? I don't know. It is difficult to know. Most aquittals in criminal cases happen because there is a lack of evidence to prove wrong intentions.
That is the max I have on the hot topic of yesterday. Oh ... and one more thing. I have bought about 80 shares of Satyam at present levels. So you know my view. :-)

Where have I been????

Yes! Guilty! Not been in touch for last 2 months. Biggest sin a blogger can make. I am a criminal. Agreed. But don't you want to hear the story? So here goes...
It has been a not-so-active work life since I joined by new company. I haven't been really getting the projects. I have been doing org. initiatives on and off. But that's it. Nothing much. But off late, in the last couple of months, things have become exciting. I have been trained on 2 new products in a span of a month. And currently I am working on a pretty niche product. A Marketing Automation Application that Gartner positions in the 'Leaders' quadrant. So the trainig has been a big leap. And to add to it, I am on a live project implementing the same product. Talk about constant learning!
And if this was not enough, this project needs me to travel to United Kingdom for a 3-4 months period. So here I am taking advise from everyone who has even been to an international airport, weighing baggages, buying woolens in scrotching summer of Pune and what not!And all this ain't no be free. It comes at a price - that of working 11 to 12 hours a day. I have lots topics to write about - politics, time travel, UK trip and much more. But lets wait till I get the time. Till then adios!

Traffic as Life

As I was commuting from office to home on the motorcycle today, the thought crossed my mind again; as it has several times, whenever I have driven on long stretches of highway. So I thought of sharing this with all the millions and zillions of neurons that follow this blog so closely :-).
There is a close resemblance between life and traffic on the roads.
  • One has an origin and a destination like birth and death of a lifetime.
  • But some journeys end abruptly before the traveler reaches his destination.
  • Some vehicles want to travel fast and sprint a short distance in shortest possible time. There are others that want to take their time to go the distance.
  • How comfortable your journey will be depends on your vehicle - the medium that takes you from your birth to your death; viz. your body.
  • You may pick up fights along the way. But more the time you spend fighting, lesser the distance you travel. :-)
  • You may break the law and cause inconvenience to others but along your journey, there will be someone else, more rowdy, who will treat you the same way.
  • There is always someone faster than you, it is just a matter of time till you come across him.
Life and traffic, as I see them, are great levelers. In the long run, nobody has an advantage over fellow travelers.

Jai Shri Ram

An incident that reinforces my belief in the Hindu way of life - a group of 40 men from Mangalore inspired by the lord श्री राम beat up women in a Pub/lounge/restaurant. Here is the media byte.
Even if we take this with a pinch of salt and blame the pseudo secular media for some saucy coverage, the beating is for real. I am sure if I raise this issue with every swayamsevak I know, it is going to be sidelined. This in my opinion is the real danger.
It is time every Hindu wakes up and takes cognizance...mishandling women is a strict NO. NO SCRIPTURE IN OUR RELIGION REASONS THIS!

Aurangabad - Ajantha - Ellora

The long weekend X'mas vacation presented a beautiful opportunity for a family trip to Aurangabad. Being the historically endowed town it is, Aurangabad has ample tourists spot to fill up three days.
Yours truly, accompanied by parents and wife drove down to Aurangabad in a Santro. We left Pune at 6.30 AM on 25th December'08. The total distance of 250 Kms to Aurangabad was covered in 4 and 1/2 hours with a break for breakfast.
Once at the destination, finding the right accommodation was the biggest pain. Aurangabad does not have clean economy hotels. The place looks more like business place and most of the hotel rooms are indecent to say the least. Good accommodation is available at MTDC, but it is always overbooked. Other good places are very very costly which include, The Taj, The Ambassador, Hotel Amarapreet etc. Minimum tariff at these places is close to INR3000 for a couple per room per day. So we took the easiest way out. We paid an autowallah 20 rupees to find a good hotel for us. the deal was that he wouldn't stop till he showed a place we liked. He was free to earn his commission from the hotel. At last we got a OK hotel at station road, 'Hotel Sai Palace' for INR800 per room-night.
Having dumped our luggage at our rooms, we rested till about 2.00 pm and set out for Biwi ka Maqbara. The amazingly crafted and neglected place took up close to an hours time . We got a taste of a street smart 'guide' at this time. He promised to show us around for just Rs.30 while others were charging as much as 100 rupees. Once we finalised him for his services, he walked something close to 20 steps with us. Spoke gibberish like 'ये मिनी ताज महल है। इसे औरंगजेब के बेटेने अपनी मां के लिए बनाया था। ये तभी बनाया गया था जब उनकी मां जिन्दा थीं। औरंगजेब कुरान लिखकर और टोपियाँ सीके ख़ुद की कबर के लिए पैसे जमा करता था। इसलिए उसकी कबर सिर्फ़ १४ रुपये और ७५ पैसे में मिटटी की बनाई गई हेई। औरंगजेब के मना करने पर ही बीवी का मकबरा सिर्फ़ आधा ही मार्बल का बनाया गया और बाकी मिटटी का। ' He repeated this over and over just to make it a lot of information. The he also offered three 'complimentary' शेर (which mind it he usually charges for). The water you see in front of the taj replica is full of moss and a sight for sore eyes. People sticking to their true nationalism, piss in the open and leave an aromatic short term mark of their presence at this heritage site.
Just at a stones throw distance from the Maqbara are the Aurangabad Buddhist caves. Unfortunately, the caves haven't got the attention the deserve. They are overshadowed by the grandeur of the Ajantha and the variety of the Ellora caves. But the Aurangabad caves were definitely worth the extra hour we spent. The hillock that hosts the caves boasts of a beautiful view of the surroundings with the Maqbara standing tall amidst smaller buildings. There are a few carvings that haven't been able to stand the test of time. They are subjected to extreme weather, and visitor's wish to leave a 'mark' in this world. By the time, we were done with the caves, it was dawn. We set out for पनचक्की - a flour mill driven by hydro-mechanical energy. This is special. Most of the historical monuments we see are static and at best we can appreciate the Civil engineering aspect, the grandeur, the intricacy of the carvings. But it is all static. पनचक्की - my friends is operational. As you can see in the video , the turbine actually rotates and so does the grinding stone atop. The water that comes, comes from a underground pipeline of & kms from the top of a hill. This is what I call engineering at its best. Mechanical parts built to last!
The second day (26th Dec'08)- this day was exclusively dedicated to Ajantha caves. Ajantha caves are 100 Kms from Aurangabad city. The drive is pleasing and takes about 2 hours. We had decided to start early but it was close to 9 am that we actually managed to leave the town. This in my opinion was our only mistake but we paid the price for it throughout the day. The wisest thing would be to leave Aurangabad at about 6 or latest by 7 in the morning. That would take us to Ajantha at non-peak hours and we would be done with seeing the caves by 2.00 pm. While in reality, we reached the caves at about 11.30 am. This is just the time when all the tour operators get bus-full of people to the caves. We along with these people spent close to an hour in the queue. MTDC has taken pains to preserve the Ajantha caves. So much so that, to preserve the paintings from the vehicular emissions, no private vehicles are allowed near the caves. The last 4 Kms to cave is to be traveled in nonpolluting vehicles (fare for A/c bur is Rs.12). Your car is to be parked at the base camp (Rs. 15 for car parking and Rs.7 per adult as facility charges). There are sufficient eateries at the parking lot.
Once at the caves, additional 10 bucks are charges per head. There is a steep climb from the ticket window to the hill top. However, there are palkhis available for the disabled. Being at the caves at rush hour, we had to spend another 30 minutes at the ticket window. Then we started the steep climb to the hill (there are well built stairs). Once at the top, a grand, magnificent, spectacular view of the valley leaves you speechless (while the climb had made you breathless!). . There are a total of 28 caves at Ajantha and only 26 are accessible. Further, not all of them have been completely carved in, not all are completely recovered by the ASI and most importantly, in all likelihood, you don't have the patience and strength to see all of them. So we took the best decision of our day, we shared a Marathi speaking guide with another group of fellow travelers. Mr. Patil never seemed like bluffing and was keen that you appreciate every minute detail Ajantha offers. His argument was simple - 'You are not going to come here again' and 'You haven't spent all the time and money to hide behind a pillar'. So we went from cave to cave, under the able 'guidance' of Mr. Patil appreciating artistic marvels. All the caves are magnificent to say the least. Whether it is the 'trick scene' of 4 deers with one head or the bull charging, all are masterpieces of the first order. As I went around in amusement, a thought struck me and it struck me hard. The artists of today, seem to be out of ideas to express their art. More than two thousand years ago, there were people who chose a place of about couple of square kilometers as their canvas. Chose the life and teachings of Gautam Buddha as the theme and went about expressing themselves. You can get a glimpse of their creativity when you see the stone ceiling painted in such a way that it looks like cloth. The sag and waving nature of cloth perfectly depicted using natural colours. Where do we see such a structure or even an attempt today? Are we too possessed with 'making it big'? Moreover, these artists of the yesteryear's, were aptly funded by the Kings. Does art today get the necessary support structure AND freedom from today's 'democratic government'?
There is more to write of the third day. That will have details of Ellora caves and Daulatabad fort. But I am fed up seeing this post in the draft section of my blog for such a long time. I will take the risk of publishing it incomplete and write more about Day 3 in subsequent post.

P.S.: Extremely sorry for the miss out on the video. Its updated now - Yenjoy :-)
