sleeping late

After practicing for so many years..(I think it started with my study hours in 10th class or even before that when I used to watch late night movies).. it has become a habit for me to sleep late in night.. mostly after 1 O'clock.. Okey.. I know there are so many creatures in this species of Human kind who spend nights awakened.. but atleast most of they follow some or any exception to that rule.
But for me, case has become really wierd.. Cmmon what do you do when its raining out in midnight, you are alone in a room, you dont have your laptop with you, the power is already gone and your cell phone battery is also down, you don't have a FM radio with you, you dont have a girlfriend to do anything.. (I mean.. making a late night call ;)), mosquitos have started theire work around you and you dont even have a candle in room. Other guys in the next room prefered sleeping early for all those reasons. But not me.. then what was I doing.. got a pen, a rough sheet of paper and started writing anything that came to mind... Any heard shaayari, songs that I still remember, and yes some of my own creations and so on!
do you remember it was dark in room? still I was writing.. till 1:30 I continued the stuff and finally decided to sleep(thinking of the office to attend next morning). When I woke up next morning(ie today) to see what have I written, amazingly enough the handwriting was better than what I usually would write. hehe dont laugh.. my usual handwriting is not that bad.

PVR is so wierd!

Yesterday we went second time to a mall bit far from office to complete the earlier failed mission of watching this 3D movie, Clash of the Titans. On ticket counter, we were first told that evening show was house full. Then we asked for a night show, and were told there isn't any show then and the gentleman handed us the pamphlet of all movie schedules. We checked on the nearby digital kiosk and also on the printed schedule to be sure of the show timings. Then went to second counter, and asked the lady for the night show tickets, and without any problem got the tickets for back seats. In fact this show was hardly 20% full, wonder how the evening show became houseful.

But the biggest wonder/blunder is yet to come. On the entrance we were stopped for having a laptop bag along with (we had went straight after the office). In spite of having checked the bag, we were not allowed, because laptops were not allowed inside! Then we asked for keeping it at the baggage counter. But then, the…

अग्निपथ से धूलपथ तक!

अक्सर दिल्ली की धूप में 'दोपहर' के १० बजे घरसे निकलो, तो अपनी ही दशा को देखकर सबसे बड़े बच्चनजी की पंक्तियाँ याद आती हैं।

यह महान दृश्य है, चल रहा मनुष्य है,
अश्रु-स्वेद-रक्त से लथपथ लथपथ लथपथ।
अग्निपथ अग्निपथ अग्निपथ...

किंतु आज तापमान में गिरावट और धूल-वायू की लहरों के चलते, दिल्ली की सड़कों को अग्निपथ से 'धूलपथ' में परिवर्तित होते पाया गया है। फिरभी देखा जाए, तो इसे उष्मा से मुक्ती का एक तात्कालिक ही सही लेकिन सुखद अनुभव कहा जा सकता है।

Designing for scalability – a startup perspective

What is scale? Is it the number of customers a company has? Is it the number of products that are sold? Is it the amount of revenue the company makes? Is it the amount of infrastructure one has? Or is it the number of features the product has? Well, it can be all of this or none of this. When an organization talks about scale it is not just a number. When an economist talks about it, again it’s not just a number. For an economist, the scale is about doing more with less. Scale is about perspective, about relationship between two or more variables that ultimately help you generate optimum value for your efforts.
Consider this, let’s say you are into making a lollipop. Selling 10 lollipops you earn $100 revenue of which $10 is you profit and $90 is the cost. When you increase you production you start selling 100 lollypops and earn $1000 revenue with $100 as your profit and $900 as cost. Did you really benefit from the scale here? In absolute terms, of course. In terms of ratios though,…
