Stock Market Dooms Day near? –

All signs point to a spectacular fall in the global stock market. FED just cut interest rate to 3.5%, that’s huge. Sincerely, I do not think that’s going to boost anything this time around. Buckle up boys’ crunch time is around the corner!!! I would say by June, we would be in a clear state to judge whether US economy is in a recession or not.
One good thing might be, India along with China and Brazil might be sought as an alternative to invest money. This could be a big test for Indian Congress government. Lot depends on how they work to gain consumer confidence. On paper at least, both Chidambaram and Dr. Singh have great economic background, we have to wait and see how they work this out.

Religious fundamentalism, it is used by everyone isn’t it? Let’s define this term “religious fundamentalism”. It is a narrow set of belief which glorifies one’s religion at the expense of the others. Given that, if we dig deep, in our current world there are only 2 sources for all our religions right? One originates from the west, the so called Abrahamic religions.

By now, we can take it for granted that religion whether it’s from east or west work towards attaining heaven or Mukti as it’s called in Hinduism. Buddhism and Jainism don’t have an abs…

Crashed my Laptop....

I got to completely restore my Laptop. The worst part was I lost lots of pictures which I stored in there :(
Well anyhow, I was talking to the Dell Support group in Chennai, and the most weird thing happened. Until now I thought my name was unique, I was talking to a guy, and he informed me that my name is exactly the same as his friend working next to him. I have to say, it was little bit sad, you don't want to lose your individuality right?

Back from Vacation

Back from my vacation to DC. What did I do? Same old schedule of course; sit at my brother’s house & do nothing. One change though, went to Raleigh, NC and I did see couple of movies, I am Legend was good. I always get stressed out meeting my parents, specifically my father. My father and I are totally apart, that’s a good thing though, if not we would be fighting every day. The main difference between us is, I like a good argument but not a fight but he likes a fight without any argument.
Anyhow, 2007 is done. For me 2007, was a confidence builder. Other than that, I don’t want to rate a year good or bad, because honestly, a year is just a passage of time isn’t it.
