MP3 and more

Posted by rishabh in Personal | 9:57pm

Searching for pirated MP3's hyderabad can be a real pain in the ass. For one, hyderabad doesn't have such a huge western esp rock following as other places like delhi, mumbai and b'lore. I go to b'lore evey summer, and its in-ur-face sorta attitude is so totally different from hyd. People smooching on the road, shirts of kurt cobain and Liverpool jerseys being worn by one and all, and music being sold as freebies(is that an oxymoron?). sadly thats b'lore.
Hyderabad is quite different. me and my friend went out to buy music mp3's, just coz we were bored, and i had finished my assignments. we asked the internet cfafe guy near my house for help. he told me you get them at aditya enclave, viz like this huge IT building, not that hi tech, the place is filled with IT training centres, atleast 500. After spending an hour there asking people like losers whether mp3's were availible, and gettin negative response, we decided to get real and get outta there.bloody most of them thought we were regular sex offender, because of our laurel and hardy appearance, we were quite the unusual people to be roaming there.
I had heard that you get mp3's in honk kong bazaar in secbad. went there. there are like 10 shops or sumthin there. apparently only one shop had them. that too that place was filled with chandni bar type of albums and hindi crap. my pal likes hindi so he got all this hindi shit like aashiq banaya aapne and iqbal and love on sms shit. i was furious. the guy has only 12 english vcd's, out of which 11 were like forgotton song albums like ricky martin and n sync shit. the only decent album that was there was the ultimate collectiuon of AC/DC, each and every of their songs. quite appealing? i already had it. so i had to return single handedly, with a frankie in my hand. i was hugely disappointed. my pal suggested we go to koti viz like at the other end of the city, i was like screw it. bahut hogaya, i wanna go home. he was like ok.chill. and we did. went ova to a pals place, thankfully, he keeps in touch with latest rock, got a gb full of videos and i was happy again. why buy original cd's when u have fake mp3? why buy fake mp3's when you have pals giving you more for free? lesson learnt.

Now that i have your attention. lol!
I have been completing my prac records this past week, after a while my hands get real tired(duh), once it so happened that i was on the chair, and my hands became real tired, and i took a little break. Out of my curiosity i was seeing the movies section of the hyderabad chronicle, now that i can't go to the theatre myself, all i could do was check out which theatre was playin which one.
Yawn. same old boring crap.
During the last 2 minutes of my paper gazing, i came across the blu movies section, and i was amused. The names of these movies brought a smile on my face. No this was not a horny, "i wanna shag u" sorta grin, but a genuine laugh, it was coz the names were soooooo funny. check it out

Well, its been a while, but its finally happened. Our principal has finally come to our class and has given us "few" tips on how to fare better at the new JEE, now that is has "drastically " changed.

"Ok nanna, listen to me now. Here. Listen. I am not happy with your IIT performance nanna, in the past few tests nanna. Only 4 students in the top 100 in open test. No nanna. I think that you peoples are getting all worried by the new pattern. Listen nanna, the IIT has changed. You cannot study the way you studied before this changing nanna. Now, iit is equal to aieee. I will repeat nanna, iit =aieee. Yes nanna, totally objective patter, and we are testing you also based on the new patter only na? According to hrd ministry, CBSE is the limiting borderline nanna, did not understand>? i'll tell you nanna. iit syllabus is iit syllabus only nanna, but whatever the topic is. nothing will be out of cbse syllabus i think you understood. and now stop doing mains level problem nanna. only objective. and you have to work extensively nanna, like 300-400 objectives perday, so that later onwards it will be easy nanna. i suggest after doing objective from IIT book, do i aieee book also, i suggest golden bells publications. goldeb sorry, golden bells nanna, they are having special discount on our campus now only nanna. the actual package of 3 books for 800 rupees, for you only 350 rupees, no middle men on anything nanna, good no? for maths golden bells is the best, other books also are there outside like...aah arihanth, and other books also, but maths only golden bells is best only and i recommentd it nanna, and level is slightly just little above iitjee. you have to work very hard nanna for iitjee. so it will be great advantage to you, but that wil not mean IC(INTENSIVE AIEEE) students meeku competition giving, nat like that nanna, but work like them nanna, very hard. they are stayin late in camplus and working. and one more thing nanna, we are supplying new IIT materials from all the branches here, and you have to work them all atleast 2 times it will make you strong like anythin in the subjects because the conceptual clarity is very good nanna in narayana iit material.very sound nanna. now if you have any doubts, plz come and ask me personally, and dont waste time nanna, ok? thank you."

Yep thats how he looks in the new LUX ad. Umm, yea like i was sayin, the add also has a sequel. So thats 120 seconds of gay airtime.
Aiite, it all started like a month ago, when I fisrt saw it. There was SRK, India's Sweetheart, in a bath tub, with rose petals, and milk, shirtless(duh!), with the water an inch below his point sized nipples, he delivered his line, "LuX, aur kya". At first I thought it was a parody or sumthin like that. But i realised it wasn;t. The gr8 SRK was actually advertising for LUX bathing soap!
It was weird. nd not b4 long, there was the sequel to it. This one was freaky.The tub, with SRK in it, surrounded by LUX faces on yesteryear, HemaJi, Sri Devi, Kareena, and sum other bitches, all grinnig at him in a weird horny shit way. He introduces them all with one adjective, check this out, "Sensous" sri devi, ROFL...
And then i dunno why, they all advance towards him and drown him, and the ad finishes
After it ends, you don't know what to do, to laugh, to pity him, to forget it, whateva, whateva the case may be, you start to look at SRK in a totally different way.
Is that a grin I see on KARAN JOHAR's and Manish Malhotra's face???

Notes on the ZIPPER

Posted by rishabh in Personal | 4:58pm

Its used to happen quite often to me. No we're not talking indulging in gay porn(i'm totally straight btw), I'm talking about the zipper of my trousers being left on.
This problem as you might know happens only in Jeans, for normal trousers score over jeans in the zip department.
This Zip since then has been given several names such as the Good(Zip)
Ugly(Post Office)
Coming back to the topic, It was a great concern to me, and trust it doesn't take u to be a genius t figure out when it's happened. I mean, you are asking doubts to your chem lecturer about Raoult's Law and you have these ugly bitches laffing at ya, now Raoult wasn;t a transvestite, so its pretty obvious what they're giggling bout. Or else, u r in a mall, and u notice a chick checking you out, you see that suddenly, the horny look on her face has just turned to a expression that'd make ya believe that she was being served shit.

Now the problem lies here, when you realise the true story, what dya do then?
Do you move u r hands towards the zipper and close it in front of the entire public, who'll for sure will be thinking of you as a sex hungry maniac. Or do you, turn aside for a moment, do the stuff, and turn around, nah too obvious, or simplywalk away and act as though nuttin happened?
Again it depends on the situation.

Now why does this problem arise:
Its like Integeration in calculus, not one particu;ar reason satisfies all.
Some times the waistsize of the jeans aint proportional to u r waist size, i.e, u r pant being too large
Or maybe while zippin the trouser, you didnt zip it till the top most point,
Or maybe, coz u bend a lot
......n REASONS.

So what the fuck dya do?
Just wear a longer shirt, agreed you;ll look like a wannabe puff daddy, but atleast thats less humiliating.
Or walk around starin at u r crotch all the time, nah we aint that influenced by MANSON yet.
Or just be careful b4 going to large gatherings esp when sexy members of the opposite sex are present.

Thank god my new pair od jeans has no such problem. Thank you Levi's. Go to hell Wrangler!

i looooove this song by queensryche. i hope yall will too. this is one of the earlier songs that got me addicted to vintage rock.

Hush now don't cry
Wipe away the teardrop from your eye
You're lying safe in bed
It was all a bad dream
Spinning in your head
Your mind tricked you to feel the pain
Of someone close to you leaving the game of life
So here it is, another chance
Wide awake you face the day
Your dream is over...or has it just begun?

There's a place I like to hide
A doorway that I run to in the night
Relax child, you were there
But only didn't realize it and you were scared
It's a place where you will learn
To face your fears, retrace the tears
And ride the whims of your mind
Commanding in another world
Suddenly, you hear and see
This magic new dimension

I-will be watching over you
I-am gonna help you see it through
I-will protect you in the night
I-am smiling next to you...in silent lucidity

If you open your mind for me
You won't rely on open eyes to see
The walls you built within
Come tumblng down, and a new world will begin
Living twice at once you learn
You're safe from pain in the dream domain
A soul set free to fly
A round trip journey in your head
Master of illusion, can you realize
Your dream's alive, you can be the guide but

P.S: This shit bout selecting mood, category and music can be a real pain in da ass some time

Forwards ruin your day for sure!

Posted by rishabh in Personal | 5:03pm

Yep tis true. This world is much better without them . I know i sound like a rude bastard, but its the fact people. Ofcourse with every email site offering 1 GB space, it doesnt really mind ya as far as the space is concerned, but jeez, all these forwards are sooooooo fucked up.
Most of them are are dumb friendship thing.
Now look, the usual one's are like a plagiarised poem, with every line rhyming, and words often repeated, quite mediocre i know. i mean do u really need that to prove that u r someone's pal. and the really weird thing is that ach of thee mails has stuff like u r my dearest most precious friend, now what i wanna know is, how can a person have 200 dearest and most precious pals,. going by the number of ppl a mail is being sent to.But thats not the last of it. In the end it says u need to bloody send it to so and so many people or u r love life/gay life/married life/whateva might get ruined. I mean PEOPLE!!!!! WAKE UP!!!! I f people actually got dumped , divorced, heartbroken etc coz they didnt forward a lousy forwarded messg, man this world would be in ruins wudnt it?
And yes ofcourse
There are the pity mails.
I agree that some of them are genuine,
but 99.9% ar just so full of shit.
type 1:
Hello ******
My name is ******, i am 7 years old. i lost my teddy. please pass this on to your friends, and for every forward i'll get a cent to buy a new one.

type two:
while i was in IRAQ, my shop was blasted by bush, and now i am jobless, also the americans are mean. plz send this mail to 10000000 others so that i will receive 1 iraqi what's-their-currency-again? for every forward.

Type three:
I was driving, i was drunk, and i was horny. my gf got out of control, and started actin all dirty. i lost hold of the wheel. ow i just have one nose and 3.5 teeth left. plz send me some fuckin dollars.

oh jeez this list is endless. you get the idea.
why do people do this, why send forwards at all?

Oh yes...then there are those so called
"cute forwards", Y a know the ones with huge stuffed animals and babies showin ya the middle finger, that makes ya go like, "awwwwww cho chweet" and shit. yea. man their so depressing. people actually like to have their mailbox filled with crap like that. I mean if you really like stuffed stuff so much, why not log onto a similar website, or sit at the archies gallery all day.
you can imagine why i wrote this post. i just received like 15 forwards quite recently. these were my views. those who like it, better appreciate it, those who dunt, well see if i care.
anyways, mez gotta go.

Does it ever happen to you that when someone tells ya that something is awful, and they really mean, u agree with them just so that they'll fucking shut up, but dunt really pay too much attention to what actually is being said? oh shit y am i asking this, obviously it happens to all of us, otherwise we'd all be sum psychic faggots like "TULSI VEERANI". Anyways, it happened to me today in my practical class.
You see, a week b4 our pracs started we finished the chapter "salt analysis" in IIT class. My pals were like , rishabh man H2S aka hydrogen sulphide has the suckiest small on the planet, it jus makes ya wanna die. i was like, really? but didnt imagine it to be really that bad. I mean its just a little sulphur, the stuff from which gun powder is made, so that can't have a foul stench. But oh i was wrong.
Come24th september, i took a test tube with a sodium sulphide(which didnt give an aroma by its own as well), and reacted with HCL. HOLYFUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
let me put that in a more controlled manner
Man it was like shit, only worse, it was like the hussain sagar, only filthier, it was like fart, only messier. damn man. H2S kicks ass for all the wrong reasons. I actually felt like how harry felt when the dementors came next to him. All the happy thoughs meltin away, and being surrounded by stench, man it was a nightmare. I had to bury me face in me shirt, where the mornin'g deo came to be rescue. Thank god for Park Avenue!
The nest time i'll always take a perfumed hanky wid me!

NaOH vs HCl

Posted by rishabh in General | 10:55am

Right! So today was our second practical class. We started with voulmetric analysis. Yesterday was the first. Our firt experiment was to determine the concentration of sodium hydroxide with Hcl being the standard solution i.e whose conc. is known.
The thing was, we had the pippet through which we had to suck NaOH upto a certain level indicated on the pippet itself( 20 ml). Yesterday we were practicing using water, since this was our first lab class. I was like jeez man, wtf is this crap.
Anyways, today was the real thing. We were using dil Hcl ofcourse. So me pal n me started doing the experiment. Every thing was going fine, we were getting marginal accurate readings, we had a nice spot by the window, the pyramids of the record books acted as decent chairs. We were taking turns sucking the pippet. While one would do that, the other would do stuff like washing the apparatus, handling the burrete etc.
"Reading no. 4" I jotted down on my observation book.
Everything was smooth, and then suddenly
"Aaargh!, pppha! phew," I had sucked a little too much, and it went all the way into me mouth. I was like , "Rishabh what the fuck is u r problem man, u've just taken in caustic soda, the stuff that squishes u r proteins and makes u r skin to pulp". I spat the shit. It tasted not all that bitter, it was just weird. Tasted a little like flour, but then the taste was the last thing on my mind wasnt it, it ws my tongue that i was worried bout!!!
I screamed, "PANI!!!!". My pals , who possesed a little bit of smartness, got me a glass of water, or shall i say a flask of water, or shall i say a flask of water from the same tap under which we wash the apparatus. But this was not a time to think bout all that crap. For a split second i thought what if the water+NaOH mixture explodes in my mouth, but the idea evaporated the second i thought of it, the absurdity of the moment stooped me to this level of thinking!
So i drank the water, gargled and spat at the sink. People started staring at me. Some puzzled, some smirking, some just staring. T'was weird, weird i tell ya. But this isnt the worst of it all. The after affect. My tongue started to get this burning sensation. It was as if a lil kid with large claws was scratching my tongues surface again and again mercilessly. It was awful. And it didnt stop. It is STILL fucking burning, though the intensity has decreased exponentially. My friend gladly agreed to do the remaining of the suckin of the pippet, thank god for him. I am content with writing readings and filling up flasks, for atleast another 2 classes.

collision course

Posted by rishabh in Music | 6:40pm

i wanted to post something bout this album.

so having heard the encore/numb- about 2 months ago which i loved the moment i heard it, i wanted to get my hands on the album. but then it wasnt availible in india, and i would receive a really weird expression from the guy who works at planet m ( and who supposedly has a very good knowledge bout rock), for he would think i am a dick, for generally rappers such as jay z dont sing along with bands linkin park. i placed an order 4 times at planet m and twice at music world. i was reminded of the times when i would go to the stores and place an order for highway to hell by AC/DC, the spellbinding album with the spectacular title song, which by the way is the most requested song on the radio in the radio. i never did get highway to hell in hyderabad. i had to ask my dad to get it from london when he went there fer a conf.
so aneways, days passed, and suddenly, as though the message was godsent, i saw an advertisement of the album(i didnt know the name ofcourse). It was called Jay Z and LP collision course.
15 hours later i was at the music store. very excited i grabbed a copy of the album. though i must admit i was sort of disappointed. ONLY 6 FUCKIN SONGS! Not done, not fair. And yes charged a full 400 bucks for the CD, i bought the cassete instead.

So as far as the album goes, i'd give it a 8 outta ten. but dont go by that marking scheme, coz i have my own standards. britney gets a 2(but then thats what she deserves). so the album is pretty rocking . the numb/encore is by far the best. i mean the beat is jus awesome and Jay Z is great. then there is the points of authority one which is pretty good too. the first song of the cassette lying from you/dirt off your shoulder is paralled with numb/encore. its got one of the best startings i've eva heard( reminded me of the daredevil OST by Fuel, another awesome band)
but then yea, the album is pretty good, and then there's the little thing bout linkin park: YOU CAN NEVA GET BORED WITH THEM! \
though i must agree, there are some stains on the moon. one of the song H to the Izzo/In the end was below par. You see, the goes like this, each song is actually a fusion of two songs, one from each artist. Although the lyrics are fused, the music is only from one o the songs. so the ones with the LP music are just heavenyl, but i'd like to raise my eyebrows fro the ones of Jay Z, for they arent that good as those of LP, but then rap fanatics would prolly disagee. For e.g in the case of the above mentioned song, you'd expect something really rocking since the song is IN the End, but then the music of the complementary Jay z song is just the opposite, its like a 70's dicso theme, quite pissin off really. but other wise, the album is pretty darn ok. atleast it works for me

Ok. so since yall want more info on the books to buy for your quest to reach the most prestigeous insti in India in the field of technology and engi- da IIT

well nowadays 95% of the ppl that get selected in those 4000 sumthin ( which will soon become 5000 something) have formal training fromm the many "coaching centres" whose ad's fill more than 70% of mathematics today magazine. and most of these places supply their own material, which in fact is made by plagiarism. anyways thats not the aim here, the aim is just to let yall know what all books are well...good enough for the jee.

well let me go subject wise.
TMH is good for solved examples, though this book doesnt have enough exercises, but then if ya cover the solution, a solved example is but a problem. each chapter has about 100 solved examples. and plz plz buy the latest edition. this might be around 450 bucks
This bloke's book hasdecent set o problems too. but ya knw in maths there is a lotta herapheri, you'll see that most of the question are solved in TMH.

plz plz plz dont buy ML Khanna or RD sharma and the likes. These are just huge bums with lot of " i mean" lot of shit. i mean do you really want 40 examples each subtopic. and from what i've heard, ML khannna has only solved examples. anyways i dont have it, so shouldn't you.

do get DIFFERENTIAL CALCULUS AND INTEGRAL CALCULUS by Amit Agarwal by ARIHANTH, each RS 200. these are gr8 books the level of problems is good and so is the collection. you wont find much of these problems in other books

also for theory on calculus do get Thomas and Finney by Pearson Education ABOUT Rs 500, though bargaining will modify that.
This is a gr8 book and should be renamed " calculus for dummies". it has lot of good examples, exercises, in depth theory, formulas, diagrams etc. and dont forget the CD.

then there's the usual SL Loney, Shanti Narayan, Piskunov for vector,trigonometry and all that and calculus.

also must must must is " play with graphs" by amit agarwal.... arihanth publications.
its superb. help you transform graphs and shit. very useful for mains and screening.

for other topics such as progression, inequalities, probability, school stuff along with solved examples should do.

also dont forget MCQ by bharati bhawan publications. and KD JOSHI should be read after completion of the chapter since its more of a revision book and not for a first timer. also KD has only JEE AND OLYMPIAD PROBLEMS .

if ya have cash left as well as the time, then get 3000 SOLVED PROBLEMS IN MATHS BY SCHAUM SERIES, by TMH.


for mechanics: un doubdtedly DC PANDEY IS THE BEST!!!!!!! but forst refer to the theory by resnick and h c verma.
also, for chapters like rotational mechanics
a book called interactive physics by MTG( RS 120) is excellent, because its the only book of its kind in the market, you'll see why.

for thermodynamics resnick halliday and krane is the best, though you can refer to h c verma for theory and DC PANDEY for problems

electricity,magnetism etc again DC pandey and Resnick and school stuff must do(we havnt done it yet so i wudnt know)

solve irodov, problems in physics iff u have time

atkins is pretty good. the basics include OP AGARWAL, OP TANDON. problems from bahadur, this has all the problems in the world but little theory. the solved examples are betta than the actual exercise.

JD LEE is god book, also your school text book, op agarwal tandon and arihanth for problems will do.

morrison and boyd is the god book.
solomons and fryhle is darn good too. besides this essesntial is peter sykes : reaction mechanism. schaum series for last minute practice. tandon is ok for beginners. and arihanth for problems: beware it has many wrong answers.

apart from this you can also get stuff by brilliant, apex, FIITJEE
must: subscription to PCM TODAY and PCM refresher. trust me the facts are consie and the selection of problems is gr8.
and also if you have access to net do enrol for the free course by apex knowledge city. it sends you free question every day.so thats like 100 question every month per subject. and whats more that give you free notes on mechanics and calculus.

do refer to the tips on FIITJEE.COM and their solved examples and solve the previous JEE papers during last hours.
