A Tribute to our Bravehearts (Mumbai 26/11)

A Tribute to our Bravehearts

Every citizen will pray for your dear souls. Every one of us will remember the martyrs and you will live in our hearts forever.

Here are a few lines honouring our brave men.

When on Mumbai, terror again struck
On the 26th of November, night
little did the crowds knew, that they did be stuck
on the streets like a sitting duck.

Terrorists, with minds dark and mean
Came to Mumbai, with devil’s intentions
To strike terror, never before seen
and hold the city to ransom, unforeseen.

People, our own and our friends
from lands far away, beyond the seas
had been in the city, to make and meet friends
but life to ’em, did befriend.

In the crisis, In times of need
Our policemen to the rescue came
With hearts brave, to do the good deed.
Thou’ fell to the bullets, to join the martyr’s creed.

Our soldiers, beloved and brave
To thee, we salute, with our soul ‘n’ hearts
The onslaught, with conviction, your braved
and a major crisis to our country, you staved.

To all the martyrs, we stand in silence
and pray for your dear souls,
In times like this, thou’ve shown resilence
to save many, with your will ‘n’ persistence.

Jai Hind.

War on Mumbai, Nov.26, 2008. (Mumbai 26/11)

War on Mumbai
Nov.26, 2008

Nov.26, 2008; The day terrorists struck Mumbai, the Financial capital of India. With meticulous planning and execution, the fanatics went about their job with professional precision, striking terror into the hearts of the people of India. Every citizen stood stunned as it unfolded on the TV screens and the less privileged who were caught in the midst of the attack.

As was customary, I put on NDTV for my daily evening dose of news and I was aghast to find that Mumbai is struck again. When the terrorists struck at 9:40 PM on Wednesday, the initial thought and news that went around and also propagated by the TV news channels were about the in-famous gangwars that typically rock Mumbai.

Meticulous George John

I thought of writing these lines, since another GOOD GUY is leaving us. It is nearly time for George John to move out of Cordiant and start his stint with Oracle.

I still remember this guy when he came for the interview. We decided to take him under our tutelage and provide him an opportunity to stay with us. The next day at around 2:00 pm, I had another interview in the conference room. What happened thereafter still makes me and Anish laugh in splits. Anish and me greeted John who was sitting in the reception counter. But there was no response from him. It made me and Anish wonder “What has happened to this guy? Isn’t this John whom we had recruited yesterday?”. Later on closer investigation, Continue reading “Meticulous George John”

Fiber foods

Fiber Foods

Fiber, also called roughage or cellulose, should be an important part of anyone’s daily diet. It helps to reduce fatty deposits. Here is how it works: When fiber enters your digestive system it absorbs the available liquids, then as it goes through the body it almost has a sweeping or cleaning effect on the cells.

Fiber is not digested by your system. It goes through your system sweeping out the bad stuff and then facilitates elimination. It also reduces the re-absorbtion of bile salts (salts that digest and break up fats). Since the bile salts are prevented from re-absorbing, the fat is not permitted to re-enter into your system again. Continue reading “Fiber foods”

Diuretic foods

Diuretic foods

What is a Diuretic?

A diuretic is a medication or chemical that promotes the elimination of fluid in the body. This can lead to an accelerated metabolism that seems to flush out the fatty deposits that may lodge themselves on cells. Diuretics break down fatty deposits into small chunks and makes it easier for your body to flush these nasty little things out of your body.


Asparagus contains the chemical asparagine. Continue reading “Diuretic foods”

Diet Food (Fat burning foods)

Fat burning foods

1) Citrus Fruits
Citrus fruits like, oranges, grapefruit, lemons, and limes contain high concentrations of Vitamin C (this is also called ascorbic acid). This Vitamin C has a fat burning quality.

Vitamin C reduces the effectiveness of fat. It reduces its content and can liquefy or dilute fat. By diluting the fat, it makes it less effective, and easier to flush out of your system. Vitamin C also works on cholesterol deposits. Vitamin C can help burn out the cholesterol, hence, making it difficult for cholesterol deposits to form in blood vessels.
