Loving Twitter

leave a comment »

I’m into micro-blogging these days. That means this blog is going to be updated all the more infrequently. I’m totally loving Twitter. As with most other things, I got hooked on to it rather late. But the natural way of communication that it facilitates has me totally captivated. Then again, I had felt similarly about blogs, and then this thing known as “blogger burnout” happened. Ah, well… I hope I don’t experience “Twitter burnout” too soon.

Stock Market Humor

Seen as the Google Chat status message of Deepak Joshi, my dear friend and cousin:

Love the stock markets. They make you feel good about everything else.

Kisi Aur Koi Bhi

leave a comment »

Google has come up with a new English to Hindi translation service. In my opinion, it is a decent effort. Although, the quality of translation is not very impressive, yet. Indeed, it is not easy to make a computer understand and interpret natural language correctly.

Well, I was just looking for something fun to indulge myself in, and thought of translating this blog in Hindi using the above service. This is what resulted. Much fun was had.

Notice what the name of this blog appears as. Try reading some of the posts, especially the math ones. 😀

Oh, and don’t miss the names of the blogs on my blogroll. I particularly loved pehlaa siddhaanton, achche maTh, kharaab maTh and mEraa sikkaa pakshapaati! Go, figure out the last two. Lol! 😀

PS: Wah! mEraa sikkaa pakshapaati! Sounds like a super-hit Hindi movie!
