Work Pressure - Life of a Normal Working Class People

Our life has become so predictable especially the working class. Our habits, our working style, our day-to-day tasks has influenced us in so many ways that sometime I fear it might one day become a life threatening problem
Following are some possibilities I have encountered.

Once I was flashing my ID card instead of unlocking the house door with keys.
_______________________________

Me and my friends went out for dinner in one of the best restaurants . And as I finished..
I started walking towards the wash basin with Plates in my hand.
_______________________________

Once I was on call with my father and mom was not around. I went on to ask, “Why is she not attending the weekly status call?”
_______________________________

I don’t login to facebook, youtube, etc.. at my personal internet connection at home… thinking it will be blocked any way. Till I realize – I am at home.
_______________________________

Once after talking to one of my friends
I ended the conversation saying, "Ok bye…in case of any issues will call u back"
_______________________________

Sometimes when I mistakenly delete a message from my mobile, I hope for a second, maybe it’s in the recycle bin !
_______________________________

Once I went to a pharmacy n asked for a tab….pharmacist asked whether I want 250mg or 500mg….. I replied 256mb….thank god he didn’t notice.
_______________________________

And I – after a hectic week, went to a movie. In the middle of the movie, when I wanted to check the time, I kept repeatedly glancing at the bottom right corner of the Theatre Screen


So avoid working so hard !
Have a great work-life balance..
Lastly......

An Introduction to the Demons According to Indian Culture

There is a reason I chose Indian and not Hinduism as an appropriate title. When I say Indian, it gives me the freedom to talk about demonic myths of numerous varieties. I can speak of spirits that might be not only demons classified as Vetalas, Bhutas, Pishachas, Rakshasas, Asuras etc., but also Prets, Betaals, Dainees, and chudels. These too are often also taken as demons. Many urban legends are inspired by these demons.

Demons in Hindu Mythology: If I have to do a random survey asking questions about hindu mythology, most of them might very well give me correct answers which is good but if ask the source of their knowledge it would definitely be movies and televisions. There will be few like me whose source might be internet. If I ask what is the difference between a Rakshasa and Asura or difference between Daitya or Danava? Most of them will say that they are one and the same, just known to us by different names. Heck! you too are thinking that what's the difference? they are same.

I wouldn't say you're completely wrong, they all are bad news. Our Vedics and Puranic stories have explained each of these demons quiet elaborately. The problem is that there is no one book of Veda or a Purana, there are many and Ramayana and Mahabharata goes without saying are epics. These holy pieces of literature describe rakshasa, asura, daitya, danava etc., very differently.

Rakshasa: These are usually depicted as the ones with a huge body structure. Red eyes, fangs protruding down from the top of the mouth, big mustached face as well as sharp, claw-like fingernails. Most renowned rakshasas from the mythologicals scripts are Ravana, often known as Rakshasraj (King of rakshasas). Kumbhakarna, Bakasur, Jatasur, Kirmira, Ghatotkacha, Hidimba Hidimb.

Asura: Asura according to what I understand is rather a concept than a being. Different puranas will tell different stories of their origins, but so far as my idea of asura goes, it is anybody who has the following negative qualities such as pride, arrogance, conceit, anger, harshness, and ignorance instilled in themselves is an Asura. In some texts Asura is also synonymous with "powerful" or "mighty". So even vedic gods and deities are too described as asuras.

Daitya and Danava: During my research one name kept popping up everywhere "Kashyapa". The story of Kashyapa was different in different books though. Kashyapa is portrayed as the father of both, devas and asuras. In one of the Puranas, Kashyapa was married to many women among them were Aditi, Diti and Danu and his sons with Danu were Danavas, with Diti are the Daityas and with Aditi are the Adityas, who are considered Devas and are also called Suras.

Pishach: Pishach are most often taken as the demonic ghost in hindu mythology. Some urban legends depict them as some demonic entity that can be summoned by mantras and tantras to do desired tasks of the summoner. Pishach are also known to have possessed human beings and alter their thoughts, hurt them in certain manner and the victims are afflicted with a variety of maladies, diseases and abnormalities like insanity.  Tantriks chanting mantras are supposed to cure such afflicted persons, and drive away the Pishach which may be possessing that particular human being. You may find this very similar to the christian method of exorcism.

Preta or Pretatma: Preta are nothing but the soul or ghost of the departed. According to Indian believes when a person dies their soul merges itself with the Paramatma (the Ultimate soul). But if the soul is unsatisfied in any way it either chooses the option of rebirth or keep wandering in the afterlife (bhatakti Atma). This atma or Preta or pretatma in this condition may find means to communicate with the living world and try to fulfill their unfinished business and in process may or may not hurt people in the living world. Not very different from the general concept of ghost folklore around the world.

Betaal: A ghostly character, most of the time to be found as a soul of old man. White long hair, white eyes, usually naked, is the generalized description of a Betaal. Betaals are found hanging upside down on old banyan trees. The most famous story in Indian folklore is the Story of "Vikram and Betaal".

Dainee or Chudel: Indian ghost stories cannot be complete without a Dainee or chudel as some may say. Chudel is a female ghost often described as a hideous creature with long sagging breasts and unkempt hair. Often, her feet are backward; her toes in the back and heel in the front. Their signature costume is a white saree. Her victims are always men. A chudel has the power of shape-shifting. She assumes the form of a beautiful young woman, with her head covered and carrying a lantern to charm any man and ultimately kill them.

If you come up with for name and types of Indian ghost please mention them in the comments.

The Top 10 Most Expensive Whiskies in the World

One of the best ways to end a day is by enjoying a glass or two of whiskey. Strong and relaxing, whiskey is a distilled alcoholic beverage created out of fermented grain mash. While different kinds of grains may be used, such as barley, corn, rye or wheat, all of them are aged to perfection in wooden barrels generally made out of charred white oak.

Some of the best whiskies have been in storage for decades. Here is a list of the top 10 most expensive whiskies in the world.

10. Chivas Regal Royal Salute 50-Year-Old ($10,000)
To celebrate the golden jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II in 2002, Chivas Regal released a specially-made whisky called the Chivas Regal Royal Salute. Just like the queen's ascension to the throne, this whisky was also laid to a barrel in 1952 and aged for 50 years.

9. Macallan 1939 ($10,125)
The Macallan 1939 comes from the distillery company's Fine and Rare collection. The whisky was first bottled in 1979 after the company had it aged for 40 years. It comes in one of their classic Lalique crystal decanter. Macallan is known for producing a strong collection of whiskies.

8. Glenfarclas 1955 ($10,878)
In 1865, John Grant bought the Glenfarclas Distillery in Ballindalloch in Scotland from Robert Hay. The distillery, at that time, was already running for 29 years. To celebrate his ancestor's birthday, George Grant handpicked a barrel in 1955 that would honour the man who started the family business. This barrel was then bottled in 2005.

7. Dalmore 50-Year-Old ($11,000)
It is one of the best 50-year-old whiskies ever made and much sought after. The whisky was first distilled in 1920 and then bottled in 1978, with only 60 bottles being produced. The bottles themselves were made of crystal decanters.

6. Macallan 55-Year-Old ($12,500)
This whisky was distilled in a sherry oak barrel and aged for 55 years. The single malt whiskey was then bottled in a Lalique Crystal Decanter, made by Rene Lalique who created a similar perfume bottle in 1910.

5. Glenfiddich 1937 ($20,000)
It was distilled in 1937 in Scotland. Left to age gracefully, the barrel was then opened and the whisky was bottled in 2001. Only 61 bottles were made. The whisky is said to have a rich walnut color, though it has hints of cedar, cinnamon, cloves and toffee.

4. Dalmore 62 Single Highland Malt Scotch Matheson ($58,000)
Only 12 bottles were made in 1942, each of which was given names unique but relevant to the Dalmore Estate. The most expensive was the Matheson, named after Alexander Matheson, the owner of the estate.

3. Macallan 1926 ($75,000)
This is the oldest in the Fine and Rare collection of Macallan. It was distilled in 1926 and bottled only in 1986. Only 40 bottles were produced. It is dry and concentrated as no water has been added to it.

2. Glenfiddich Janet Sheed Roberts Reserve 1955 ($94,000)
Glenfiddich had a barrel of Scotch whisky that has been aging since New Year's Eve of 1955. When Janet Sheed Roberts, the granddaughter of Glenfiddich's founder William Grant, passed away at 110, the company decided to honour her by mb aking 15 bottles from the said barrel. Four were kept by the family while the rest were auctioned off. A whisky connoisseur from Atlanta bought one of them for $94,000.

1. Macallan 1946 ($460,000)
This bottle of single malt whisky in a LaliqueCire Perdue decanter was sold in 2010 at an auction, with the proceeds going to charity. This whisky is unusual in that it was made with peated malt because of the then-prohibitive prices of coal that shot up because of World War II. This is a classic Macallan and one of the best ever released.

Why I am So Affectionate Towards Japan

It all started with Naruto. Naruto is a fictional character from one of the most popular anime in Japan. It would not be wrong if you say that I worship Naruto in a certain manner. Naruto helped me generate a keen interest in Japanese anime. I started watching more anime series. Bleach, One piece, Fairy Tail, Death Note etc. are few of them. But to think about it, anime can’t be the only reason for my obsession for Japan. There were many other factors that led to my affection for Japan.

Japan is one of the weirdest places in face of the earth. Why I say this, the following facts will justify my claim to some extent if the definition of weird is same for you as it is to me. Watching anime and reading manga made me curious and I started researching about japan, the insights on their people and culture that I got, left me with only one expression; “I gotta see this with my own eyes, its fucking unbelievable” and it also left me with an awe, which is weird in its own right.

Few facts that I find weird:
1)    Love for technology: Japan is the most tech savvy nation ever known to anybody. So you must be thinking people there must be using all sorts of latest technology gadgets, right? Wrong they just don’t let go off old technology. The truth is, many things are still being done in painfully old-fashioned ways. How can this be? You see, Japan is still mostly in the hands of the older generation: Over a fourth of the population is over 60, and they're not very fond of new technology. Many businesses still don't even accept credit cards. You will hardly see a 24-hour ATM anywhere in Japan.
2)    Work culture: In most part of the world, falling asleep in the office is likely to get you in trouble from your boss, or worse maybe get thrown out. But Japanese work culture recognizes the employee who works so hard they are forced to engage in "inemuri" - or napping on the job. I don’t even know what’s good and what’s bad anymore. One day in a year they party and this party is celebrated like a festival. Now why is this party special? In an organization each and everyone is invited and on that day you are supposed to binge drink and forget all the problems and differences you might have had with any colleague or even your boss. That night public transports are crowded with drunkards and yet clever people who in that drunken state are smart enough to catch a train to home..
3)    They are Perverted as fuck: In Japan they have a “Cuddle café”. That’s right a cuddle café where you can cuddle with ladies while enjoying a cup of tea or coffee. Pillows designed in the shape of woman’s laps and man’s arms, weirdest sex toys you will ever encounter.
4)    Weirdest Inventions: You have to see it to believe it. Small inventions mostly used as life hacks. Innovation on a whole level. Find details in this link.

In spite such stupidity which I find majestic which is weird in its own way, Japanese are very close to their tradition. They are very disciplined, being on time is in their blood. Respect for elders is instilled since childhood, bowing in front of a person to greet as a sign of respect and according to such form of greeting, it is said that the lower you bow the more respect you give which is very much appreciated.

Japanese are very good hosts, if you are to visit a Japanese family, they will welcome you with such warmth that will leave you with amazement.

Dude I Just Thought of Something...

Discussions while drinking can sometimes leave you thinking some really weird cooked-up shit.
Sipping on a cocktail, suddenly it struck me and I was like, "Dude I just thought of something."

Satan used to be God's angel and a best one at that, but then he got all cocky and was all like “I am better then you God” and the God kicked his ass out of heaven because he didn’t want the competiton.
Then Satan was all like “I’m gonna make better heaven!” The only problem is there was only one customer review… The Bible… which is, of course, going to be favouring Gods heaven.
So what if Satan was able to build a heaven that was way better than the God’s heaven. This made God jealous and He was like, “Fuck that place is super-hot and there is nothing to quench your thirst.” And Satan is sitting there like “Of course it is hot , it’s the matha fuckin tropical paradise and thirst? We have an open bar! These reviews are bullshit.
And in the bible it says how satan is so evil and he tries to convince people to do things he wants then to do. Yet God mind-controlled a bunch of humans to write a very one-sided book that says  how great He is and how bad Satan is.
Satan gives us free will. So what if we have the story backwards? And when Christians die, God just appears and is like “HA! GOTCHA! Gullible piece of shit, go mow my yard. You thought you were getting some mansion, greedy bastard!”
And when I die Satan appears and is like “Welcome to Satan Heaven!  There is a Margarita waiting for you at the bar, extra salt just like you like it! Good job resisting the temptations of promised wealth after death and just living your human life the best you could think how. Sorry about all those bad things that happened to you, but I had no control over it. “God’s PLAN” they call that lol. Come on I’ll do a shot with you!
Its decided then I want to go to Satans Heaven.

Royal Houses from "The Game of Phones"



game of phones
Nokia/Windows  <-> Targaryen:
Nokia would definitely be the Targaryen. Nokia were once the undisputed Kings would built the Kings Landing, now overthrown because of some Mad King who was too egoistic to adapt to the changing world of handheld devices. “Burn Them All”. Now just like Danny they are trying to regain what truly is theirs.


Apple<-> Baratheon:
Apple was the one who started the revolt. We can pretty much relate to the revolution brought by Apple in the world smartphones and the revolt started by Robert Baratheon. Now history tells a different story Apple rules the whole of Westeros. The Baratheon who started the revolution is now dead and like King Robert, Steve Jobs too never knew how to rule.


Samsung<-> Lannister:
I am able to see the face of Tywin Lannister in the logo of Samsung. Apple maybe all royal and shiny but Samsung shit gold. They mine smartphone like lannister mine gold. A wide range of phone covering all grounds, leaving no stone unturned. From low cost mini versions to high end fully loaded handheld devices. And no matter what Samsung have paid their debt to Apple more than once.

Motorola<->Stark:
Motorola are my Starks. They are the house of honorable men and women. Very much like Starks they are surviving the cruel world of smartphones. King in the North, I mean good quality electronic devices. They are champions in their own right. You have to wait and watch “Winter is Coming”.


Sony<->Tyrell:
Sony smartphones are no different from the Tyrells. They too have a shit load of money and maybe its more than the Lannisters… sorry Samsung. Sony possess the style, elegance and royalty like the Tyrells.


LG<->Martell:
LG would be Dornish from the far south of Westeros. We can easily have an eye for the dornish wine and women just like LGs flagship smartphones Optimus and G series.


HTC<->Tully:
HTC is more or less like the Tullys. Their kingdom is not big like the Apple and Samsung, but are Honorable like the Motorola.


BlackBerry<->Greyjoy:
Blackberry will be the Greyjoys who at one point were the great Kings of the Iron Islands. What went wrong hmmmm. I think their over prized shitty smartphones. The idiots launch a phone for high prize and when no one is buying they slash the rates directly by half. “What is dead may never die Blah blah” foolish.


Micromax<->Frey:
These little smart devices are like parasite. No class no quality and can stoop so low just to get the business running.


Karbonn<->Bolton:
Karbonn are the Boltons. Villainous creatures lurking in the dark.


HP/Lenovo<->Arryn:
And last but not the least HP and Lenovo smartphones are the Arryns. They are there in the story, everyone mentions them but they are hardly visible.
