King of Pop will be IMMORTAL!

Jackson-6_579761a

Today marks the 51st birthday of MJ, the eternal King of Pop…… How I wish he performed on stage one last time…..

Surrounded amidst constant controversy, right from his songs to marriage, to his surgery, paparazzies just wouldn’t stop chasing him. Heย  had to pay a heavy price for being a Popย  icon and yet managed to have millions of fans….

His songs were something that would move a vagabond on a street to a professor in a classroom, thus were the power of his songs…..He remains the only solo artist to compete 30 years in his career.All his albums sold in millions and songs were chart busters…Who can ever be a dancer like him…..He is just to marvelous for words or comprehension….

Despite the fact that this legend has brought together many artists on the same pulpit to perform, he was always a humble person and a lonely man….

At a phase of life where he was, it is very natural to indulge in things which are not accepted by the society and BTW who are these people in the society who decide what’s right and wrong! In fact they themselves are hypocrites of the first order…..

Yeah it is a melancholic feeling that MJ is not with us…We will never see the moon walk again…..We will never get to hear about his controversies and still love him for what he has given to the world….

Crashed equals to new Cell Phone

On a call with my friend:

He: Hey Good morning. Too much of noise where are you?

Me: I cant hear you. Can I call you back?

He: OK

Me: Hey I’ve reached the office and guess what Monday morning, its 9.25 am and the office boy hasn’t got the office keys yet. Will have to wait downstairs.

He: Oh…So that means you begin your day late and things get pushed.

Me: Yeah, not very happy about that…..

And the next thing I know is my call gets disconnected and gets switched off on its own. The office opens in the mean time and I am in, go to my desk and keep the cell phone aside and I track news papers. And then come back to my desk and try to switch on my cell phone. But to my surprise it blinks….I am surprised. Switch it off and switch it on again and it makes some weird noise like a short circuit. And after that when I try to switch it on again my cell decides not to switch on. Tried everything possible from dismantling it to charging and giving it some time to recuperate. But nothing seem to have worked and then I realized my cell just CRASHED!

I was very upset, not because I was now deprived of a cell phone, but then did not have numbersย  stored in my Grey cell. But thanks to my colleague who carries 2 cell phones, I borrowed 1 of his phones to use for the day. Work is over, had to return the cell phone, but then he was generous enough to let me have the cell phone for the night as I decided to buy a new cell phone.

Well here is where my story begins. I am not a gadget freak at all, which means have no clue about whats new and best in the market in terms of consumer products especially gadgets. I was hell bent on buying the cell on that very day and so I asked my friend to help me buy one. I enter the Mobile store which I had already visited once just to check out what’s new in the market and of course the sales guy realized I had no clue about cell phones. Well my friend who is a gadget freak calls me and I am confused and hassled about how I don’t know what to buy from the options and my budget constrains and all that. But then he calmed me down and at the very first instance told me stick to Nokia and no other brand. So my first confusion resolved :)…..Now I want a cell phone with good music quality and decent camera. So the sales guy at the store shows me a few cell phones, and my friend checks their reviews on the net and tells me to chuck all of them and ask for Nokia:5130. So did I and then my friend reads out the review and convinces me to finally buy the cell though I had to stretch my budget a little. And now I am so glad that I went by my friend’s advice and bought that cell. And here is my first ever review.

Handset Model – Nokia: 5130

  • Size – Dimension: 107.5×46.7×14.8mm, 2.0 inches
  • Weight- 88 gms
  • Sound – MP3 ringtones and dedicated music keys
  • Memory- Phonebook-2000 contacts
  • Camera – 2.0 megapixel

Other features – Bluetooth, USB, Vedio recording, MMS, email, download games, talk-time upto 6 hours and music plays upto 21 hours.

Well apart from the technical stuff a few features that I would like to mention include its stylish and dazzling look. Very user friendly, amazing grip, great sound clarity. The sound is just too good. Anyone who is looking at a cell with great music quality must consider this cell phone.

And yes a huge thanks to my sweet, adorable and of course patient friend who helped me buy this phone ๐Ÿ™‚

So Cliched!

Was browsing throug the paper which is the first thing I do when I enter the office after switching on my system and there is 1 headline amongst the others that caught my attention, “143 TV channels want to enter Indian market”. And I was like wow, aren’t the 100 odd channels enough to entertain, inform, irritate, hook the audience, grab attention, and of course the so very famous “the breaking news” coined by all the news channels where even a monkey entering someone’s kitchen can be a breaking news..God alone knows what breaks whom, where and how, when the news is broken on the channel!

According to the news, media industry is seeking permission from the Information and broadcasting ministry to up link 143 new channels. I can only wonder as to what can those channels present to the audience. Agreed from a saas bahu series to Rakhi Sawant ka swayamwar, everything is accepted and gains popularity and rises to fame at least when it kick starts, but then it so cliched! I haven’t been watching television for the past 7 years now, from the time I stepped out of home and even if I have to pass my timeย  I would rather watch some music channel or a movie channel which is so much more entertaining and refreshing. But I guess most of us hardly have the time & patience to sit through the shows or the inclination to watch the stupid melodramatic shows which has no head or tail!

All I can say is it is so so very cliched!

The nEW agE mediA

While most of us ponder and strive every single day to enhance our client servicing and put our best foot forward, we often tend to forget that the most important aspect of our communication activities is to build relations and augment our connections. With the most of us being active on various social networking sites (SNS), it is a very easy and simple to keep in touch with people and create a database of people who are the key players in the communication industry.

I am sure most of us are aware of the various social networking sites, otherwise known as the new age media, and not only are a part of it but also religiously use them. But then the question here is are we effectively using these SNS? Most of us hardly spend time for obvious reasons, that we are too caught up with our day to day work. But then when we visit these sites at leisure, what do we look for? Entertainment, fun, keeping in touch with our school or college friends? But SNS today is much more beyond that. Looking at the present scenario where SNS is growing with leaps and bounds, one cannot afford stay away from it.

A few statistics below will give a clearer picture of the SNS and their popularity:

Worldwide SNS has increase by 25% and to quantify this the number of users have increased from 0.46 billion to 0.58 billion from June 2008 till now.

Figures keep changing and growing, but the point is where are we heading to? To put it this way, it opens a worldwide forum where, interaction, knowledge sharing and voyeurism will be enclosed within one finite space, where casual visiting, twittering and eavesdropping would merge to the point of being indistinguishable.

How to enhance the usage of social media?

This is a very common question most of us wonder. Of course it is not easy to maintain keep updating ten accounts. But yes the only solution is to alternate. When I say alternate, it means switch in between using these sites, for the only reason that one cannot not miss out on being on the various SNS, or at least the most chased after the sought after at this point of time. Lets go this way: choose any 5 SNS and stick to those till the time you discover that they are worn out and some other SNS has taken over. To start with you can have accounts on Facebook, Orkut, Linkedin, Twitter, flickr. And most of us are aware of youtube which isย  under the concept of video hosting/rendering. I am sure most of us are aware of Facebook and Orkut so here a guide to Linkedin, twitter and flicker

So to all the people who read this, Happy social networking!
