Bride-Groom Selection Spreadsheet

Soon after entering in your mid 20's you will hear a word 'proposal' more often from your parents. In most part of the India the timing for bride/groom searching is decided by the parents for two reasons
Arranged marriages are still very popular hereAs you young boy or girl you will always feel that you too young to get married 
Many a times a final selection will be done based on a gut feeling of your parents and relatives. To base your decision on facts and figures I have created following spreadsheet. I personally think the selection that is going to impact your whole life should be made logically. 
In criteria or attribute column you can add up to 10 things and you can assign weighing factor to it in the adjacent column. Then you should go on replacing Name 1 to 4 with name of girls or boys your are considering as your would be. Now simply give marks to each girl and boy against each factor. The one you have with highest score should be the winner.

You will not learn until

While I was drying my hands I overheard two developers talking to each other. One was telling other developer an interesting story of learning better coding.
The first developer was quite famous for his coding ability in his earlier company. But sometimes even skilled people stuck. Similarly, this developer was stuck up with a problem. He spent two days on it but could not come out with solution. He scratched his head, books and at last internet but could not get any help.
Frustrated developer went to his project manager and explained what he was going through for last few days. The manager promptly came to his desk and asked for control of his development machine. He questioned developer to understand more about the problem. He took not more than 5 minutes to look for solution on Google. He copied the code, pasted it in IDE and did some quick tweaking. The problem was solved. All this was happening in front of the developer. The problem that took more than two days for him to puzzle hi…

Vacation preparation checklist

Vacation is a great stress buster especially for people like us who are so burdened with office work, pollution and chaos around us. Vacation revitalizes us to put our best at everything we deal with after resuming our regular life. But seldom we prepare properly for this vacation. And as a result, a vacation that should have been a stress buster becomes stress booster for us.

Last week one of my friend had gone for a long vacation. But before leaving for it he had forgotten to close the taps and I had to go to his flat then to break the lock as the chairman of the society was facing hell lot of complaints from other residents of that society. Since the tap was open any amount of water filling in that tank would eventually got drained leaving no water for domestic use. A bit of precaution while leaving would have saved gallons of water and 7 lever costly lock of my friend.

When I went out on this weekend I felt that I could have better prepared for it if I would have taken little extra…

Honeymoon - Part 1

The first thing that any couple does immediately after their marriage is go for a 'honeymoon'. It is almost 6 months since I am carrying tag of 'husband' but unfortunately could not go out with my wife. I didn't have enough leaves to go for honeymoon after my wedding. So we had decided then that we will have it in parts like Harry Potter movies. So this weekend we went for our first part of Honeymoon.
Saturday morning we left at around 9:00 AM for The Lake Weekend resort. This is the parking area of my building.


The resort is near Varasgaon dam. The route is Sinhagad road - Khadakwasala dam - Panshet - Varasgaon boat club. The picture taken while running besides Khadakwasla dam.


My wife, Meet, trying catch herself in portrait while I was driving my Pulsar 150 towards resort. She is wearing cap that my MBA college gave me when I went there to meet my juniors last year. 

It is a perfect ride on weekend if one loves beautiful scenery and enjoys cool breeze.
