Calvin and Hobbes do share brilliant stuff at times: History
Well that is not completely true but then why do we have several controversial theories about so many things. Worth giving a thought isn’t it?
You sleep alone tonight
No hand to hold
Neither on your left nor on your right
Missing the togetherness
The snoring or even a sight
It’s just not you there
Whole world out is alone
Some for a night some for years
Feeling the agony same as yours
Sharing with you millions of tears
So don’t feel sad or sorry
Believe that you are special
That there is no reason to worry
Feel surrounded by billion such souls
And that my friend is The Happyness Theory
Well for the starters google is a place where you do most of your searches and exchange mails. So why everyone is in love with google? First thing is they let you search for free, then they let you exchange mails for free, then the best browser in town Google Chrome is available on marketplace for free, who can forget Google goggles, Google drive to store things for free. Enough reasons to love google and all this is for free, Right? But just when you think its all wait and think, best maps ever — Google Maps, best tube channel Youtube, their upcoming programming language project Go, Google cars, online office and calenders, and all of this for free. Isn’t that just amazing. Think of all that google gives you and that too for free.
But didn’t I tell you that just when you think its all wait and think. As I say more often than not, If you do not have an iPhone then you got plenty of options in Android Market and yes a hell lot of crazy apps. And they do not keep it all for people anyone can use google APIs and create a good business for themselves, and people have done that and are doing that. Google funds businesses, Innovation and crazy ideas. Google code is there at your service and to share your thought there is blogger. What else can they possibly give you, wait, try and search for www.indiagetonline.in. Intresting isn’t it.
Well we just proved that Google is one of the most innovative companies of all times. Who would have thought that a crazy idea of a website where people can search random stuff will become online world’s leader one day. It started real small but went on to become what it is today. But never forget what I told you “just when you think its all wait and think”, google is now trying to solve death and fight aging, their Google Calico project .

I came across a question on Quora which read Entrepreneurship: What is a “startup”, and why does everybody seem to be in one?. I had following answer, hope it will be helpful for everyone
Start-ups are companies which are newly created or are still in Market Research phase. Their growth, survival depends on the amount of popularity they get/clients they make/people they connect to. So their growth can be as fast as Facebook or can be modest as in case of Infoedge. Startups are generally based n an idea or concept which a group of people work really hard to implement and then even harder to Scale till it becomes a sustainable business.
Now coming to your question, why everyone wants to be in one? Well first thing first people prefer inventing a job than to finding it, as it involves more challenge and you actually can do what you want to do. Second the learning is great, all the things that you hear people talking abut you will be implementing on your on. Next is that you get to be your own boss. Next and it is important one, you actually address a problem or give it a solution which brings the change for all the good. Another important thing is if you succeed the return on a startup is insane, try finding what’s worth Twitter, Facebook, Google, Yahoo, Apple, Microsoft and the list goes on and on. They were all startups at one time. You can also read about Zomato or Redbus, they are all cool startups.
Now yes this is the place from where the pointless apps are coming from. But if you think again these Apps are not as pointless as you might think. They tell you good restaurants, tell you routes to different places, guide you till there, find good discount coupons, Games(save you from getting bored to death), update you with all kind of news, connect you with friend and social world. My point is startups help people by making their lives easier in one way or another and if you think again that is kind of a social service but only difference is it is a profitable one

what went was the past
slid from the hand so fast
and the darkness prevailed
everytime the innocence was assailed
that torture of imaginations
with vilified incantation
felt like an orchard of cactus
an irritant mattress
the time has changed
the esteem was ravaged
soul was now exposed naked
nothing was left to be ashamed
it certainly was the bottom low
any further one could not go
which gave me the courage
but I had to mask this rage
I read this story somewhere on internet today. It says,
Once there was a guy, he wanted to work as a woodcutter. He went up to the owner and asked for the job. He got the job, the money was good and he liked the job, so he accepted the offer. He was very excited about it on the first day so he cut down 20 trees in a day. It gave him quite a lot of motivation, so next day he was determined to do even better. But even after his hard work he could manage only 15. So next day he tried even harder but next day was even worse, 12. And the numbers fell each day for next 3 days.
So frustrated and sad both our guy went to his boss and told that he tries harder every day but the number of trees cut keep falling. What could be possibly wrong? The Boss asked “when was the last time you sharpened your axe?”
“Sharpen? I had no time to sharpen my axe. I have been very busy trying to cut trees…”
So what do we learn from it? Well in our lives too we are very busy racing for numbers, be it better money or better job, how much can we achieve where can we reach in next 5 years. But in all this we forget what’s even more important “To Learn”. When was the last time you really “sharpened your Axe”. You tried to add a new skill learn a new thing or traveled to a new place or appreciated the art/beauty around. Can’t remember, right?
Well that is how we are. We keep on focusing on things which are meant to be part of life and forget the life itself. We are too busy losing time. Never forget that you are more important than your job. Don’t lose the important things for some numbers be it a high salary raise or a soul sucking high paying job. Focus on key things learn, live and love. Life will again become beautiful.
You can listen to even a pin drop
It gets so serene
As the night matures
The beauty multiplies
And the sky become more dark
With every passing by second
May it be the curve of the Moon
Everything is so fascinating
That they never seem to be so far
Who chose the color for Sky
Which, with a little light from moon
Changes the essence of night
Or the twinkle of stars
Hail the Lord!!!
It lasts and waits
For the sun to rise
After all it’s the darkness of night
Because of which the morning glorifies
1~ Those up loader people, who upload/update/share all the shit on facebook. The very first thing that occurs to them is it should be on facebook. Suckers the social network was created for people to socialize and not showing how shitty you can get. I don’t care what you do in your mean time just, stop sending your meaningless stupid updates for no freaking reason.
2~ The lame First Name-Last Name Photography people. First of all, buying a DSLR makes you owner of one and not a photographer. I do not like your picture and I do not want to like your page either. You neither have technique nor the eye for photography. You better go read, then experiment and understand what it means, maybe then probably(very little chance) it will be appreciated.
3~ The so called atheists. I have no idea whatsoever that why is it so cool to say I do not believe in God, I am an atheist. Well cool you are and I believe but why do you have to impose atheism on anyone and everyone. Atheism means “The theory or belief that God does not exist”, atheism just like theism is a belief so please respect others belief as well.
4~ Pseudo-guitar players. Just when you thought Shah-rukh was the dumbest thing you’d ever seen playing guitar in the song Challa without knowing how to … Yes, some idiot decides to give SRK a break. And just to get into the whole cool-metal culture, they’ll wear Metallica ‘tees’ and tell every one that Pink Floyd is their favorite band, though they would never have listened to more than 2 songs by Pink floyd.
5~ These super smart phone guys. I use a galaxy S4, we can whatsapp, Line, wechat. That is the best reason to buy a phone with roughly the same cost as a motorbike. Well an honest suggestion, Go get a life!! You utterly need it. All they can think of when they are not using any free messaging apps is to play temple run. Guys, if wasting time was the goal you wasted quite a lot of money for no reason.
6~ These request sender guys. I just crossed XXX level in some non-sense game join me. Well what if I do not like to play game or what if I want to play different game(if you know what i mean). Stop bugging me I have no interest in your lame ass thing I am better off to nothing than this.
7~ The Speakers of Congress, Manish Tewari, Rahul “buddhu” baba, Master of crap Digvijay Singh and son-of-a-gun Kapil Sibbal . Seriously these people either need to get some standards or they are better off dead. I can’t tolerate the non-sense that come out of those ugly mouth and then their aspiration of making Rahul Baba PM of the country is just astounding. The guy who can’t handle a CII speech will handle a country of more than a billion people is my biggest nightmare.
when sun will lose it’s light
and watch will run out of time
i will be waiting for you
at the gate which separates heaven and hell
you will be old and wrinkled
but still beautiful for me
because i understand your soul in way
in a way no one else does
I know it is hard for you to believe
right now, but once the beauty is gone,
money becomes penniless and power becomes impotent
then you will see the divinity of my truth
and will understand the meaning of these words
i don’t expect love in return from you
i don’t hope that i have a meaning in your world
but there is no reason to loathe me
though i can’t ask you to stop
but when all is gone
and no one will be around us
no people, no blood, no god, no religion,
no sect, no ideosyncracies
you will understand what love is
you will know what i feel
