Many people spend time studying the properties of animals or herbs; how much more important it would be to study those of people, with whom we must live or die!

Just got done with this crime novel. Well paced. Enjoyed reading this one.
Will be reading more from the series in a few days. Surya was kind enough to locate the complete series and share it with me (Thanks). Although I doubt she will enjoy reading this herself.
In case you find the Google Search option missing in Extended Search settings, here is the fix:
How Parental Controls are linked to Extended Search settings… no clue. But this seems to fix it.
Just updated to 10.2. No issues with the update (a few users complained about lost contacts etc… I can't seem to understand how that could happen, given that this is an extremely simple process. Curious to know what went wrong).
What I like:
There was a bit of an issue with getting message previews for BBM working properly (Toast Notifications). Easy fix:
Crappy reporting aside, this is just wrong. TNN and Stuti Agarwal should not be allowed to get away with printing such filth. Pathetic reporting.
This is supposed to be a news website! It is NOT your personal blog.
I find this offensive… and I don't even like the show… let alone any of the contestants!

"It's a very big responsibility and I have spent every single moment since my crowning, preparing for it. I was never as busy as I am now. From 7 in the morning to 10 at night, all I do is prepare for the pageant. It's not about me anymore, it's only about India. I have to bring the crown home," she says
You know why I smoke? So the tobacco farmers have jobs and can send their kids to school. Yes. That's why I smoke. It's not about me anymore. It's only about those kids!

Trust, Communication, Forgiveness, Giving Space, Friendship…. Who would have figured that these revolutionary / novel concepts are instrumental in maintaining a healthy relationship! Ufff. What an enlightening article! Deep! Profound! Groundbreaking Journalism!
There are different ways to promote a film and superstar Aamir Khan, known for innovation, plans to pitch for 'Dhoom 3' by using the music of the movie as his caller tune.
So the guy likes the music… decides to put it up as his caller tune… how is this supposed to be a PROMOTION campaign? I mean, unless Aamir or TOI decide to publish Aamir's cell number (so people can call up and listen to the music and perhaps have a talk with Aamir or whoever is holding the bloody handset).
Zabardasti 'news' banaa dete ho. Kabhi to akal se kaam liya karo!
Zinda hoon iss tarah ki gham-e-zindagi nahin
Jalta hua diya hoon magar roshni nahin
Wo muddaten hui hain kisi se juda hue
Lekin ye dil ki aag abhi tak bujhi nahin
Aane ko aa chukaa thaa kinaara bhi saamne
Khud uss ke paas meri hi nayyaa gai nahin
Hoton ke paas aaye hansi , kya majaal hai
Dil ka muaamalaa hai koi dillagi nahin
Ye chaand ye havaa ye fiza, sab hai maand maand
Jo tu nahin to in mein koi dil-kashi nahin
Page-turner. A very disturbing book / story.
This was a good read, but after reading this and Gone Girl, I feel that Gillian Flynn should get a psychological evaluation (may be more than one). Here is one mind - I feel to be more scary and messed up than my own (not a compliment).
The excavation is triggered by a local sadhu or sage who says he dreamt that 1000 tonnes of gold are buried under the ruins of a palace…
Yogi Swami Shobhan Sarkar says the gold he dreamt of belonged to a nineteenth-century ruler, Rao Ram Bux Singh. He wrote to the Reserve Bank of India, suggesting that the government use the treasure to help India recover from its economic slowdown.
The Archaeological Survey of India has sent a team of archaeologists to the village of Daundia Khera in Uttar Pradesh. They plan to dig two 100-square-metre blocks beside the palace.

And I have this recurring dream that the public - in general - and public officials - in specific – have somehow managed to grow a brain and are now capable of exhibiting a certain basic level of intelligence.
Well… one can always dream.
Censoring Archie comics…
I do wish they would use something other than a marker pen… here is why:
Whoever is responsible for this censorship is rather liberal with the use of the 'Censor Pen'… but s/he isn't consistent or thorough.
CaseCollage for iPhone 5c provides an interactive way to add personality and design for the new 5c case. Use the case holes as frames for your artwork, friends, and interests. Merely create and print for endless custom cases.
A bit disturbing to know that someone would spend time coming up with a pointless app like this. Even MORE disturbing to know that people are actually using such a pointless app!
If you also have some time to waste, here is the video:
It was bad enough that we had to put up with Anna - and his chamchaas – hijacking the digital media. Took a while, but thankfully it came to an end (seriously, that was just bad television and horrible reporting). I don't think there was any need to repeat the drama on the cinema screen.
Just like Anna's 'movement', this film is - Crap. Waste of time. Pointless. Idiotic…
Not what I was expecting. Definitely a good read. It took a few chapters before this turned into an amazing page-turner (for me).
Felt a lot of different… <emotions / feelings / degrees of rage>, while reading this book (can't call it 'emotions'… just a feeling). Will be reading this one again.
It wasn't too bad to read, but I did find it rather girly. The plot is predictable (in my view), yet manages to maintain reasonable interest. Not really a thriller or a page-turner.
I was a bit disappointed with Jodi's character. Not nearly as intelligent as I had anticipated (the character is a qualified and practicing psychiatrist). She comes across as fragile / needy as opposed to intelligent and headstrong. At times she even comes across as incapable and err… for lack of a better word - stupid.
Some idiotic incidents are difficult to forget. It's even more difficult to miss out when they get rehashed.
There is little difference in the text of the articles. Definitely not enough to justify a fresh article for the same story.
The 2nd October article states:
However, the bench of Justices S C Dharmadhikari and Gautam Patel disagreed with the prosecution. "There seems to be very little justification for the impugned orders or even for taking the view the police claim they did. Why exactly his behaviour was thought to be suspicious, we are not told. We are only told that he has a very long line of criminal cases," the bench said earlier this month.
What exactly do you mean by earlier this month?? Do you mean 1st of October? That is the only possible date that could be 'earlier this month'.
