There are 3 kinds of Indians!

Hello everyone! How have you been!?

I have been doing great!

When was my last post? August 13,2012 and that was not even my original post but a shared one! That doesn't sound good!

Lots of things have happened in my life and I had many ideas for posts on my blog but unfortunately I'm a master procrastinator.

Few things I wanted to post but didn't were about my return to India, family trip to an amazing waterfalls around our city, my first trip to Chennai, how traffic police in our city (Hyderabad) keep stopping me, Japanese and Korean language learning, my trip to Hong Kong in march, which was quite sudden and unexpected and my second trip to Chennai and many more. I still hope to somehow, one day, write about them.

However, for now, I just wanted to let out a sudden thought I had about how there are "3 kinds of (urban) Indians".

Disclaimer: Following might sound as if I'm judging people, I probably am, but I just wanted to write what I feel and what I opine about Indians. I do not mean to specifically offend people, so if I did, I'm sorry about that. Please feel free to comment on this post. Thank you.

I think the first kind are the ones who read "Times of India" (TOI) newspaper and enjoy probably (or for sure) books written by authors are like Chetan Bhagat and Preeti Shenoy. I actually, just yesterday, finished reading Preeti Shenoy's "Tea for Two and a Piece of Cake". I liked it.

TOI's reply to The Hindu's ad campaign during the ad war which seems to have happened somewhere around early 2012. (I was still living in Toronto, Canada, otherwise I would have enjoyed this ad war)

The second kind of Indians are the ones who read "The Hindu" newspaper. Who enjoy reading editorials and OP-EDs, and also talking about intellectual stuff and may be browsing websites like quora (do check this website if you haven't yet, it's amazing!). This kind of Indians might not get along that well with the first kind, but again we just can't stereotype.

The Hindu's ad campaign obviously against the TOI. 

The third kind are simply the ones who just don't read any of these newspapers!

What kind of an Indian am I? I actually used to read TOI more than ten years ago and used to enjoy reading it, we used to get Hindu too but I haven't got myself to read it, although my father tried to encourage us. Lately, I enjoy (probably a wrong usage)  prefer reading Hindu than TOI. In fact, I don't read TOI anymore.
One of the first books I read is "Five Point Someone" by Chetain Bhagat, some five years ago. I really enjoyed that book but I don't really admire him anymore.

So, I'm not sure where do I fall in the kinds of Indians I mentioned above!

Enjoy watching this video, which is related to my thoughts on TOI vs The Hindi!

33 Ways To Reboot Your Life - Luther Cale

People who know me personally, clearly know that I have to fix my self discipline of life. (This line might irk some people who are looking to hire me for work). I have been reading a lot of self help books and posts in internet. Unfortunately, I couldn't fix myself much yet, thanks to the distractions on the internet. I am still working on it and would work until I get myself fixed.

I came across this great post today on "What's Hot" of Google+ (which is, by the way, a great service by Google which, in my opinion, probably is filled with smartest people on the planet!) and I think it is a must to check.

I myself might not follow all the tips (one tip even says, not to eat for 24 hours, I am not kidding) provided in this post but still they are great tips for a near-perfect way of living our daily life. I hope you like it and benefit from it. 

You can find 'Luther Cale' in Google+ I am looking forward to check more about him and his posts and related work.

am I retarded ?

am I retarded if I believe, feel or say that this world has an immense social and economic inequality? Everyone knows this, but seeing it every day here through living in an extremely developed place (Canada) I'm unable to take it anymore. I always believed and believe even now that we are linked to each other in this world, if one suffers and one lives in excess luxury, I believe they both are linked too. Is there a justification to this? Isn't all of the world a single 'world'? or should we say to ourselves, like in Hindu religion they say "People suffer because they might have done something in their previous life and it is their karma".

p.s : I don't believe in any religion.
