Finally christened my blog.

Reason for 'perestroika':- Being born in the year 1984, the year Mikhail Gorbachev started the Russian Revolution of turning the country in a democratic non-communist nation, my father wanted to name me after it(perestroika). Thanfully (and eternally gratefull for it) my mom had her way, and named me ,what she did.

Need any other reason....ehh?

Got this as a e-mail forward. Found it really good. So here it is, since I watch sienfeld sometimes in my free time. Not a great fan of this show as much as I am of Friends, but nevertheless.

George Constanza's (the short bald guy in Jerry
Sienfeld) Words of Wisdom, This is what George has to
say about the cycle of life..

"The most unfair thing about life is how it ends. I
mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time.
And what do you get at the end of it ?? A death.
What's that, a bonus ?? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You
should die first, and get it out of the way. Then you go live in an old
age home. You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your
pension, and then, when you start work you get a gold watch on your
first day. You work forty years until you're young enough to enjoy your
retirement. You drink alcohol, you party and you get ready for high
school. You go to primary school, you become a kid, you play, you have
no responsibilities. You become a little baby, you go back and spend
your last 9 months floating with luxuries like central heating, spa,
room service on tap. Then finally you finish off as an orgasm !!

Sensex @ 10000

After an anxious couple of days the sensex finally reached the much awaited 10000 mark this week. The road from 1000 in 1991, when the economy was opened to 10000 was quite a journey. With a 6% average growth in the early years the sensex reached 10000 in 2006. So, with the present 8% growth and much touted 10% in the coming years (sounds exciting, ain't it), it is surely gonna reach some height.

My friend, like many other people had pridicted the 10000 figure a couple of years back. Well, they have a bigger grin, every time I see them now. When I was told about the 10000 mark, few years back, the sensex had just collapsed after the congress had formed the government with Left support.That time I almost laughed (my ignorance). They surely must be laughing their way to the bank now.

Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, the grand daddy of the Indian investors, in one of the debates on NDTV had pridicted 25,000. I tried to find the time frame for it, but all I was told is that the sensex is bullish in the long run.

Trying to call your broker.........well, I don't blame you for that.

BAD back in India

Yes, he is back. After a couple of years, Brayan Admas is in India again. Saw his interview on NDTV (his first ever with an Indian channel). He really gets the passion going in his live concerts. He really takes the audiences for a ride at these events. Especially the 'summer of 69'. When asked in the interview what does the Summer of 69 symbolize, he said that it was obvious. Well, elaborating it futher won't be appropriate. Anyways the guys, Jimmy and Jody mentioned in the song were actually members of the band at that time. The drummer Jody is no more(in the band) and Jimmy is still around.

I wonder when am I gonna be at his long elusive concert.
