Veena Ferrero Rocher

Oh yeah, those are chocolates and they are not just any chocolates but Italian Ferrero Rocher. Now why didn't anyone think of this before? ;)


Fake Kingston 32 GB Pen Drive

Recently a salesperson turned up at our office proposing to sell Kingston 32 GB pen drives for a very cheap price (Rs.1200 each). He claimed that he had stolen some of them from the port when the shipment arrived. We were not interested and so did not purchase any of them.

As soon as he left, we did a google for the actual price of Kingston 32 GB pen drive. What we came across was a large number of articles mentioning about fake 32 GB Kingston pen drives.

For Those Who Are Married As Well As For Those Who Will Get Married

Sharing a few thoughts for Would be Grooms

Rule No. 01 -
Never compare your mamma's cooking with your wife's. There is no faster way to dig your own grave than that.

This is something which he has been doing consistently over the past three decades - a very simple act of charity but with dedication and sincerity.

What is Tension?

A beautiful girl asks lift from you. On the way she faints and you take her to hospital.

Doctor says ‘Congrats. You are going to become a father.’


You say – ‘But that baby is not mine.’

Girl says – ‘he is only the father of my baby.’


Police comes and DNA test is done. Report comes. Which says that you can never become a father?


Anyhow you thank God and return home. Then you think, “At home I have 2 kids. Whose are those?”


Installing ZK Spreadsheet in Debian Lenny

ZK spreadsheet is an online spreadsheet which enables users to import and export excel files and edit excel files within the browser. This can be thought to be similar to Google Spreadsheet. Only that it is open source and can be installed on your own server. Another very similar open source product which I came across was Sheetster but the setup was not very straight forward and also I was not really impressed with the UI and functionality.
