We all may be poor, but a significant few are not. This guy whom I claim to be a friend has this devilish collection of Iphones, Ipods and a new entry to his family, the IPAD!.. (Luckily he doesnt read my blog nor will he ever, so I can safely blog about it ;) )
PS: If you did read it, please dont be mad at me, atleast I didnt give your name away did I?? :P

Oh, our group doesn´t have any ppt slides this time. Yesterday we witnessed a big big printer vomitting out the poster for our project. First time I have witnessed such a big machine spewing out a green A1 sized paper. (Oh green not because its gross, but because that´s our poster theme colour :s)
Flu will eventually lead to a couple of days with cough, and then the finals begin.. Talk about bad timing :(

An IED was found on the road side near Police Control Room Srinagar this morning. The Bomb disposal Squad of the Police Control Room reached the spot immediately and defused the IED averting a major tragedy.

Secondly, under all international agreements, agreed by both India and Pakistan, negotiated by the United Nations and endorsed by the Security Council, Kashmir does not belong to any member state of the United nations. So, if Kashmir does not belong to any member state of the United Nations, then the claim that ‘Kashmir is an integral part of India’ does not stand. And if ‘Kashmir is not an integral part of India’ then Kashmiris cannot be called separatist or secessionist. Because Kashmir cannot secede from a country – like India – to which it has never acceded to in the first place.
My opinion is confirmed by a poll conducted jointly by major news outlets on Aug 12, 2007: CNN-IBN and Hindustan Times in India and Dawn and News in Pakistan. A majority of those polled in Kashmir Valley (87% to be precise) preferred freedom (Azadi). The Azadi means the rejection of the idea that ‘Kashmir is an integral part of India.’.
However, there is but one fair, just, legal, and moral solution to Kashmir which was provided by the United Nations. The procedures contemplated at early stage of the dispute at the United Nations for its solution may be varied in the light of changed circumstances but its underlying principle must be scrupulously observed if justice and rationality are not be thrown overboard. The setting aside of the UN resolution is one thing; the discarding of the principle they embodies is altogether another. So the settlement has to be in accordance with the wishes of the people; impartially ascertained; in conditions of freedom from intimidation.
Kashmiris are open to a constitutional dispensation that answers all of India's legitimate national security and human rights concerns. With regard to the former, they are willing to explore permanent neutrality for Kashmir along the model of the 1955 Austrian State Treaty and a renunciation of war or the threat of force in international affairs along the model of Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution. They are willing to consider abandoning a military force like Costa Rica, Haiti, and Panama. Moreover, they hold no objection to providing community quotas in government offices along the lines of the 1960 Constitution for the Republic of Cyprus to safeguard against invidious discrimination of any religious or ethnic group, i.e., Pandit, Buddhist, Sikh, and Muslim alike.
With good faith by all parties common ground leading to a final settlement of the Kashmir tragedy can be discovered.
And an appointment of a special envoy by the United Nations or by President Obama, like Bishop Desmond Tutu will hasten the way of peace and prosperity in the region of South Asia.

I have been fighting with myself. Each time I decide to stop using windows, and go with open source, some crazy guy from somewhere bounces on top of me, and makes me revert back to windows.
Enough was enough.. I finally put a big stone on my heart, (as big as the hill near Batu Caves, here in Malaysia), and windows (yet another) goodbye.
Now, I am using Ubuntu 10.10. I have always been fascinated by how people who are not getting paid, can manage to come up with something as awesome as Ubuntu.
I will let you know when I reinstall my stupid Windows Vista...
Until Then, Penguin Time..

An all-in-one client, you can have multiple logins to all the accounts you have made since you were born and said the word "Goo Gleee".... One thing I didnt like about it, is, that, unknowingly, it somehow managed to post its referral ad everywhere, to around 2000 genuine contacts in my address book, and well, the post below this one.. I admit, OSS does need a lot of publicity to survive in this cruel Microsoft and Adobe and world, but this is not good, its unethical... Bad Bad Digsby..
