Professional Services. (Digitising Audio Cassettes)

For all you music buffs, please feel free to contact me for digitizing all your audio cassette tapes.

Was going through an interesting article the other day and thought of offering this service altogether.

Couple of reasons.

I later on found out that all those audio cassettes are useless today since we all have kind of hi tech gadgets (laptops, ipods, mp3 players)
All most everybody confirmed they would like to recover those old numbers once again.

Not to mention, buying CD's and DVD's again would involve costs again.

Having all the necessary equipment and the required softwares, I can assist you in gifting you your valuable treasure once again.

Feel free to drop me an email on for further details.

Life @ Chandigarh

Relocated to Chandigarh few months back. And It seemed it was a wonderful decision after all.
The city is beautiful, clean and much organized. Divided into sectors and has lot of gardens and trees all around.

Administratively, the city is not under the jurisdiction of either state, it is administered by the Central government and hence classified as a union territory. The Governor of the Punjab is the Administrator of Chandigarh.
The city derives its name from a temple of goddess Chandi (the Chandi Mandir) located in nearby Panchkula District of Haryana. The word Chandigarh literally means "the fort of Chandi".

More info available on:

Places like Manali, Shimla & Amritsar are very close by. Was one the fortunate ones to visit Vaishnodevi temple.

Gudi Padwa Celebrations.

We celebrated Gudi Padwa the day before (19th March 07) with full swing. Being the first day of the week , we had an off and it was a welcome holiday.

We used a bright coloured Gudi this year and pooja was performed thereafter.
Enjoyed home made gulab jamun and a typical maharashtrian lunch for the day.

About Gudi Padwa:
Gudi Padwa is celebrated on the first day of the Chaitra month. Gudi Padwa is celebrated as the New Year day by Maharashtrians.
Houses are cleaned prior to the festival. Colourful rangoli designs are drawn at entrances. New clothes are worn on this day. There is a family gathering and Maharashtrian delicacies are prepared for everyone. The Maharashtrians make puran poli or sweet rotis, soonth pak and usal.
On this day, gudis are hung outside the houses or in the localities.
Gudi Padwa is especially dedicated to the worship of Lord Brahma. Many legend states that this festival is celebrated to commemorate the victory of Rama over Bali.

Some Maharashtrians see the gudis as a symbol of victory associated with the conquests of the Maratha forces lead by the great hero Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Gudis are also displayed as they are expected to ward off evil and invite prosperity and good luck into the house.

The gudi, Brahma’s flag (Brahmadhvaj) is hoisted in every house as a symbolic representation of Rama’s victory and happiness on returning to Ayodhya after slaying Ravan. Since a symbol of victory is always held high, so is the gudi (flag).

A bright green or yellow cloth adorned with brocade (zari) is tied to the tip of a long bamboo over which gathi (a type of sweet), neem leaves, a twig of mango leaves and a garland of red flowers is tied. This is then hoisted by placing a silver or copper pot placed in the inverted position over it. Beautiful designs with special powder of soft, white stone (rangolis) are drawn on the floor in front of it. Everyone eagerly waits to usher in the new year. Then uttering meaning, ‘I offer obeisance to the flag of Lord Brahma’ one should ritualistically worship the gudi with a resolve. Since Lord Brahma created the universe on this day, this flag is called ‘the flag of Brahma’ (Brahmadhvaj) in the scriptures. Some also refer to it as ‘the flag of Indra’ (Indradhvaj). On Gudi Padwa, you will find gudis hanging out of windows or otherwise prominently displayed in traditional Maharashtrian households.

My World

My World is my group of friends with whom used to hang around.
Its a different story that we hardly meet nowadays but we are still in touch thru email and phone.

Suruchi Katta

This small food joint on Law college road , near Film Institute was our regular place to meet for allmost 10 years or so.
We were ( or rather are still ) bunch of friends passed out of Cusrow Wadia Inst. Of technology way back in 1995

It was so obvious that after our regular office hours, we were to meet @ Suruchi. Our bikes (everybody had bikes then) just used to turn on Law college road after 7.30 to 8 pm

Everybody used to share their experiences, normal 'gila shikwa' at this place. So much so, that when i started my business, it was our office for quite some time. We have so many memories attached with this place , its just unimaginable.
There have been days where we have begun or day with Suruchi and ended there.The sweeper who used to open doors was also used to.

Regular Chai bidi , Bun wada and misal are specialities and we used to enjoy.
