Day before yesterday morning, while coming back from office after doing a night lost my wallet somewhere. Man it is so disturbing. Firstly due to the loss of so many important things and secondly due the feeling of carelessness i am getting that i couldn’t take care of it and lost it somewhere like this. Absolutely no clues how and where it happened but i am feeling so so bad about it .
Another cause of headache for last two weeks have been finding a new accommodation. So many things related to this one suck, so we have been planning to change it since long. Finally when some stuff got out of control, we had to take the decision and start the hunt. Man it is such a shitty job. Finally after 2 weeks or so and compromising a bit on our choice and all, finalized one and will be shifting by this month end.
On the little better side, finally managed to watch Rajneeti yesterday night. A good movie after pretty long time. Nana Patekar, Manoj Bajpai and especially Ranbir Kapoor gave brilliant performances. Katrina did a pretty nice job too. A good enjoyment overall.
Looks like an incomplete post . Not much to write, just hoping for the things to be in little better order in coming time .

It has been really long since I last posted on this blog (Last post was on 14th Oct, so we can safely assume that it has been actually pretty long ). Title of the post explains pretty much of the stuff and this post may also appear to be the same ie crap . Not much stuff to write but yes a lot of, to tell that why this long gap. There was so much of crap to see in last one month or so. First it was the RnD to buy a new Computer and then not being able to buy it because of unavailability of one component or the another. Finally when i succeeded in buying it and came back home, the keyboard & mouse was found to be used and defective. So had to go back immediately and get a new one. Not a good start probably. Then started the struggle of installing some OS. Not a big deal but another beauty to see that the system kept rebooting randomly. Tried switching OSes but to no avail. Then started adding, removing, adding again, removing again the RAM sticks and so on some 100 times . Again no results and the focus shifted to motherboard. Finally it was declared that there was something fishy with the motherboard and it was the cause of this reboot thing. Did and made some people do some real good RnD and decided to buy another motherboard that supported the hardware properly. So went to Nehru Place and some dishoom dishoom with the dealer and finally succeeded in getting a new different motherboard. Now things should look good. Oh yes, the problem of rebooting was gone but Windows stared freezing randomly, again without any pattern or logic. So now what ? I was just thinking that what could be the game that noticed something crappy with the Hard disk. Ran some utilities and they told that the end of the hard disk was near . Oh noooooo. Time to replace even the hard disk. So again went to the dealer. Explained him the issue (That this particular SMART attribute of HDD is not ok…heavy stuff ). And he asked me to go to Seagate service center and submit it. Man it was like a kerosene distribution depot in India. So many people in queue to submit their defective disks (And from there you can pretty much guess the quality, Seagate is delivering these days ). Finally after a week or so, got a new refurbished (yea, refurbished, not brand new ) Hard disk, installed it and i guess (yea guess ) it seems to work fine. Windows did freeze once or twice initially but since then it has not shown those strains. Does that mean that the crap has ended ? You never know ! Hopefully, it has .
& I am going to be regular again, again hopefully .

There are some people in this world who are plain *#&(#&$#*($*& and they would not mend their ways come what may. What would you do if you see someone like that in trouble and you seem to be in a position to give a helping hand ? Would you help him/her ? Would it be a pre-decided thing that whether to help him/her or not or it would depend upon the state of mind at that time ?

While surfing i came across an old (of 2007) piece of news in a newspaper which is worth mentioning. Especially today when we are lost in the darkness of terrorism, riots and violence. Its the story of a girl that how her fate played games with her but finally after 24 years she was able to find her father again. God does wonders ! The most touching emotion is when she said:
But memories of her father continued to haunt her — of how he had doted on her, carrying her on his shoulders to school on rainy days so she didn’t dirty her feet.
And then she got separated from her father . Read the whole story here.

This whole week was pretty frustrating, irritating and boring. Didn’t do much work and neither felt like doing. Thank God its Friday. Hoping to have some rest on Sat & Sun and then be ready to happily face the next week
