My Favorite TV Shows

January 12, 2009

I haven’t been updating this place as frequently as i used to do in earlier times. In my earlier posts, i have pointed out the reason as making a the correct balance. But actual reason is i spend most of my free time watching TV series. In other words, i am hooked to them.
I am not talking about Indian TV shows like the saas bahu crap or 43yr old man marring 16yr old girl , but TV shows telecasted in the US.In general, they have great storyline,fine performances from actors and mostly importantly they move as the plots change,actors gets replaced. Something which i miss on Indian television.
Just like every tree in garden doesn’t yield fruits, same way not all TV series telecasted are interesting to watch. i would start from ones which i like the most.

The above 4 shows are the my favorite ones, other than that i watch Dexter,24,Supernatural. but didn’t like them much.
the next question is How do i get this shows here in INDIA? Answer: via Peer-to-peer networks like TPB. as legally you can’t get them here.
Now, Go watch it as the risk of being addicted!!

    Strike the Correct Balance

    December 17, 2008

    Dear Readers,

    As you might have noticed by diminishing flow of post in blog, I have been rarely active on Internet in previous months.due to this, this blog is being neglected. so what I have been doing?

    I have been trying to set my life on correct track; setting a goal and being devoted to achieve that goal no matter how hard it is and whatever it takes. previously, I used to do so many things together, but i was never able to master them as my mind was diverted.

    Now I always try to stay focused on the task in hand, rather worrying about what’s coming up next. this one thing has helped me lot. These days i spend my time doing constructive things, things which you after 5years, can look and say “I made this”. So from now on i would be avoiding IRC,IM and alike’s.

    I want to convey all the readers of this blog, this blog has a special place in my heart and will stay active for longtime. sometimes new post may not come as early as you have expected it to, will flow of posts on this blog would go on…..I guess its all about Strike the Correct Balance between things you do, suddenly life becomes very simple.

    Interesting, this blog is now going to be 6month old. So if you have any comments,feedback or complaints. Please leave them as commented below or contact me via e-mail at:

    Next post coming up is about “New age Internet Banking service”.

    Stay Tuned!

    And That’s the First Year that just passed…….

    August 22, 2008

    YAY!…I am in second year now. I have almost(results not out yet) passed by first year in college. what a year it has been, I made friends & had fun and whoa it just went. I never realized time can pass so fast.
    I still remember my first day as college,freshly out of school, I was little hesitant to go as I didn’t knew anyone there. but soon things changed I made some new friends and things were fun. you know it is in First year college a sort of total carefree attitude that guys have. we used to skip some classes and didn’t realize the mistake were making until exams came and terror stuck!!. then we studied for day nights and just filled the answer sheets.
    Anyhow, exams are also finished now, it time for a new optimistic restart by which I aim to update my skill-set and add value countable value to myself.
    One more reason I am so exited this time papers are interesting. Complete Syllabus can be seen here.

    • Financial and Marketing Management
    • Digital Electronics and Circuits
    • Mathematical methods for Numerical Analysis and Optimization
    • Database Management System
    • Object Oriented Programming
    • Networking Technologies And TCP/IP
    • System Analysis and Design
    • Internet and Intranet
    • Electronic Communication and Data Communication
    • Visual Basic, Visual C, and Visual Foxpro Programming (Laboratory)
    • Web authoring Tools,Java and Perl Programming (Laboratory)
    • Digital Electronics Lab (Laboratory)

    I am little disappointed with Rajasthan University for not updating its course since we are still studying things Foxpro & Visual Basic but then again it would be useful as some core concepts learned here would apply in RDMS. I am happy to have TCP/IP stack as I always wanted to know about it but lacked motivation to do so. However studying Digital Electronics will challenge for me. it has lot of “stuff” which need in depth understanding of subjects taught in previous year but who likes Life without challenges.
    Additional I am planning to stress more on Java Programming Language and little on Visual C as I feel java is more widely implemented and would be value addition in my resume.
    Although it hard to perfect everything but lots of hard work with some luck would do the trick.

    Wish me Luck 🙂

    Exams Over,What to Do in Free Time

    August 3, 2008

    My College Exams have ended few days back. There is still time to before new session of college Begins. this means sittings at home whole day and doing nothing. some people call it rest and means of relaxation. for me its simply waste of time. so thought to pen down some ideas which one could do and enjoy his/her holidays. after all we rarely get such long holidays.so I want to utilize it to fullest extent.

    Choice of activities that can be done in Holidays widely depends upon your hobbies/interest.I am listing a few which i prefer to pass my time.some of them might not appeal to you much.

    • Catch with Friends: its been long since i met my friends. so i plan to visit their place. go on some outing with them. make sure you aren’t unwanted guests, its your holiday not theirs. so call them and ask before visiting.

    • Watch Movies:Thats most of us do when we are free, i plan to do the same. if you are looking for some good movies to watch.check out Movie Recommendations @imdb.com
    • Hit the Gym: In past few months due to continuous sittings while studying & daily midnight feasts, few extra layers of lipids have developed around my belly. now its time to shed it and get back in shape. if you don’t have access to Gym,then do some jogging & running in park. if going to park is also not possible. you may try Power Yoga.

      Its basically faster form of Yoga for youth.

    • Give Time to yourself: In this crowded fast moving life, personnel space is at premium. this is the time where i can s pend time improving myself. Pursue my hobbies like reading magazines and novels. improve my dressing sense. catch up with latest fashion by shopping for trendy clothes & accesssories. get a funky look by new hair stlyle.you can do things which you always wanted to but were never able to do due to lack of time.
    • Help your Parents:Be responsible, spend some quality time with your Parents. help your dad with Car wash or Mom with daily chores. let them know they have a obedient son/daughter. they would be so happy. then maybe if you are little cunning then ask for a new mobile!! 😀
    • Sports: It peaks performance and mental toughness. Although some people don’t like sports, but i am sure there must be at least one sport which you like playing. i like swimming.check the List, to find which sport you may like.
    • Games on Console/PC:Playing computer Games is quite fun and addictive. i can spend whole night playing GTA IV.organise a LAN party with your friend and play counter strike. girls may not like this idea. Alternatively,Girls can callup friends and catch with latest gossip.
    • Vacation:leave behind the fast city life and escape to a exotic holiday destination. if you are life me, who can’t go to holiday then visiting your Grandparents is the best thing to do. for me it refreshes my childhood memories.

    • Enchance your skill set:not entirely fun, but you need to do something which enhances your professional value and this is the best time to do so.it may not be fun but certainly help to future. like i have decided to brush up my programming and learn basic math to improve my quantitative apptitude.you do something similar in your respective field. is you get too much stressed then to relieve stress watch some porno flick.no don’t do that. i am joking. 😛
    • Internet Surfing: waste your time watching Youtube videos,reading my blog or read site like Wikipedia and participate in online discussion forums.you can spend time doing some some work or just passing time.on Internet its all upto you, how you spend your time.if you are looking for some sites. then Google is your friend.

    These were my ideas on how to pass my month long holidays. Please comment them and feel free to contribute your own ideas.
