Zurker is here – third gen social networking

and she came along!

I never believed in love at first sight, until she came along!  Well, she made me wait for quite a long time, it took me so much search and research and finally she came on Friday night. My search for her began three weeks ago when I started to believe that I’m finally ready!! Went […]

My Surgery Experience – Pain, Delirium, Fun!

I’m just back from my first personal experience with what is called a modern day ‘Surgery’.

23-Jul-09. A day I would not forget for a long time to come. You’d remember some of your biggest goof ups well, don’t you? It was my third(of the 10) speech at Toastmasters today. I messed it up in a very big way. Though the topic had great depth and the concept was to suit […]

Are you expecting? – My 2nd Speech at Toastmasters

Yesterday, I gave my second speech at the Toastmasters Club in my office. Its such a relief that I’ve done it finally. I have been thinking of this ever since I gave my Ice Breaker speech earlier. Honestly, I could not make up my mind with a topic for the speech. Yeah, part of the […]

What are RSS feeds?

I just added an RSS feed link to my blog. Guests like you could subscribe to the feeds and they would know of all that I update here, without even visiting the blog’s homepage. Isn’t that interesting? Yeah I too thought so. In addition, I got curious to know how these RSS feeds worked. And […]
