Diwali 2010 at Buldana

This was my first Diwali after marriage so it was special. But like all earlier ones this one started with my special Diwali menu - chakali (चकली).

And obviously with some sweet. 

Meenal and Meet were making rangolis before the Laxmi puja in the evening. 

They also made rangoli in front of the Ram mandir which diagonally opposite to our home in Buldana. 

We had Laxmi pujan in the evening as per the hindu customs. We decorated idols with flowers.

After puja then it was a time for fire crackers. I was bursting crackers after my fourth standard. It was sort of low confidence that I was experiencing while lighting atom bombs. But after bursting 2-3 of them it became like routine.

It was scenic to watch crackers. The color and odor is so enticing. 

Since we were in Buldana we had our brother Vaibhav with us on Diwali. He enjoyed fire crackers too with Ankush.

Some family snaps on the backdrop of light festivity. 

Meet, Anjy atya and Meenal (in left to right order) posing for the snap.

Few other snaps of Diwali.

Below are the few interesting rangolis made by neighbors for Diwali. You choose the best among these.

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. 

On every tour …

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.

Corporate e-Newsletter Initiative – How to go about it?

If you are thinking of starting up a e-newsletter activity at corporate level then below are few tips that might help you in the course. I have divided a newsletter activity in three phases viz. planning, construction and distribution.

Planning phase

1. Attention grabbing name

The name of the newsletter should grab attention of the audience. If your brand is highly recognizable in your business community then only use that name. If that is not the case then use any other name that will represent the aim of your newsletter. For example, if you are starting a newsletter for cloud services then have the name something as ‘Envisioning the Cloud’.

2. Decide your target audience

It is not always possible to have different newsletters for different segments of your market due to budget and resource constraints. In that case you will have to choose your first market segment that you will serve as a pilot campaign. Based on its success you can go on adding segments in current newsletter or sta…
