Recently I finished the Season 5 of drama series Dexter that centres on Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall), a bloodstain pattern analyst for the Miami Metro Police Department who moonlights as a serial killer.

I didn’t get much interested in the initial episodes of season one because they were slow and looked real life. Ironic yes, but a drama is meant to be vibrant. But after a few initial restraints and hiccups I got the feel of the character and jumped on to the journey of watching the entire 5 seasons in one go. It took me one month to complete the series.

Why I’m writing about Dexter is because I felt connected to him on real grounds. Watching him trying to fit in the world around him and yet fulfilling his insatiable desire to kill was just so engaging. His dissociative mental illness was discovered by his adoptive father Harry Morgan who taught Dexter the ethics and procedures to make sure the “Dark Passenger” inside Dexter is tamed if not controlled. The upbringing by Harry made him the “Dark Defender”.

As much solid the Harry’s Code may have been on paper and reel, it got me thinking what would happen to Dexter if he was real? I mean, there were so many loop holes in the ways he worked. He was so distracted sometimes and even though he got away with the murders he did, in real life it would have been difficult for him to do those crimes even after following Harry’s Code.

So what would be the best place for Dexter if he’d really existed?

Going by the real life stories of few serial killers, it looked like their modus operandi was same. Commit crime and vanish. But Dexter cannot vanish away. He had a need to fulfil. So in my opinion the best place for him to execute his operation would be India. And what could be better than being a part of Indian Police System. He would be untouchable. Even if there would be a Sergeant. James Doakes, he would be the least concern of all. Doakes would be busy with all the other stuff that no other police system can offer in the world, lest to worry about a killer. The system here works in a magical way. If you fight the system, it will ultimately pounce back on you, even though the system is there to protect you. But if you are in the system, then you are the system. You are above law.

Killing someone and get away with is more easy than breaking a traffic signal. You cannot just cross the traffic police without an attention. That is the most active area of the police department with ample expertise in nabbing the culprit. They will catch and beat the hell out of you if you cross a signal. But if you confess to them that you have committed a crime, chances are they might sense something fishy and do not arrest you. They might put an enquiry on you and harass a few people related to the victim but will make sure you get a fair trial and get out of the crime neat and clean. Where else can you find such an effective system which thinks so much about you?

So I would suggest that Dexter should take birth in India. Although finding a father like Harry would be a Herculean task given the reference that it is India we are talking about. Here his father might force him to join the street and he could become a Gunda – an equally aspiring and forceful system as a police force and they sometimes enjoy an upper hand too over the later. But I do not want him to be like that. So given the chance I would presume that he comes loaded with the knowledge of Harry’s Code. I will throw a dime or two in a wishing well if I need to. Because having Dexter in India would be great as he’d be doing good and he won’t be having problem finding his prey as there are plenty who gets away from the system. He would be a perfect setup to clean up the society and still remain off the Radar. And in dire situation if he does get caught, there’s a long journey of trials to cover up to prove anything.

All in all, the great package he could get in India is unbeatable.


This article is written especially for Indiblogger Contest – What does real beauty mean to you?

Beauty is a noun which is omnipresent yet so subtle and abstract.

As the saying goes – “Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”.  You may define beauty but for different people the perception of beauty will always be different. For instance a diamond is beautiful but it will be perceived differently by a jeweler and a woman. For a mother there can be nothing more beautiful than her child.  If we talk about emotion, the purity and innocence in the eyes of a baby is the most beautiful of all things in the world. For a teenage, the sensory manifestations arising of pulchritude can be the perception of beauty. All in all, the tag of beauty can be subjected to every object in this world, we just need the right perception to admire the quality.

So what does real beauty mean to me? We know about the infinite stretch of universe. The celestial bodies, all scattered throughout the ether. A space where time has no dimension. The stretch of time is as infinite as that of the space itself. All around there is a chaos but there is a harmony among the chaos. In that chaos, there is a planet where life evolved and we were born. So for me the real beauty is LIFE – it’s formation. The process of fertilization is so chaotic where millions of sperms vie for a single egg but yet to distill so specific a form from that chaos of improbability, that is the crowning unlikelihood. The formation of life is the most beautiful miracle I have seen, but the world is so crowded with this miracle that it became a commonplace and we forgot. We gaze continually at the world and it grows dull in our perceptions. Yet seen from another vantage point it may still take the breath away.

In my opinion, one’s life is the most beautiful thing that ever happened. So cherish the moments, each one of them and weave those moments with the strings of time hoping that when the ends are tied it makes a perfect masterpiece. Once you start admiring the meaningful design of life, automatically its inherent and manifested beauty will be evident to you. Feel the equilibrium created by nature to help the evolution of life through discipline and care under the blanket of motherhood.

Isn’t that beautiful?

market-homeAndroid market is the spine of android OS. Whether you are techy, a junkie, a gamer or just another guy who happens to own an android based mobile, you will need to visit the market to access its’ vast collections of applications. But just when you get a feeling of being the most powerful person, your source of power stops giving you the energy.

This is a serious problem that many of you may be facing or may encounter in the coming future on your android based mobile phone. Just one fine day, the android marketplace stop downloading apps for you and says “Downloading paused” or will stuck on plain starting download message. I faced it recently and searched the internet for possible solutions. Needless to say, there were a lot of solutions given. And fortunately, for me the easiest of them worked. You don’t need to do a factory reset or a hard reset to get your market app working.(Thank God and not Google for that Hot smile). I thought Google was good at this but they disappointed me Devil. They didn’t show any support on this issue.

Please follow the following steps:

Go to Settings =>Applications => Manage Application => Go to All applications

Search for all google applications like Gmail, Gtalk, Market.

Additionally you can also search for download Manager etc.

Hit Clear Data and if also clear cache if any.

Restart your phone.

Go to Gmail and if prompted for username and password, enter it with the existing username you were using or you can also use new username.

Now open market on your mobile. Start downloading. Hopefully it will work now.

I own a Samsung Galaxy S GT I9000. Call me

Please give your comments if this helps you. Or you may describe your experience with android.

3G

Tata DoCoMo launched the much awaited 3G services during Diwali this year. It brought some great plans before also and I seriously believe they have the potential and technology to provide a hassle free 3G service as Tata DoCoMo’s 3G services are powered with technology support from its partner NTT DoCoMo of Japan, a global leader in these services.

Airtel has also started promoting its “Soon-to-be-Launched” 3G services. It has a refurbished logo too to embark a new journey. I also saw the Demo of 3G on Airtel network at Phoenix Mall and registered myself as a possible prospect. 

Both these tele giants are getting creative with the new advertisements about their newly acquired over budget sensational domain. I like an ad of Airtel in particular by the name of “Endless Goodbye” showcasing a very cute couple bumping into each other repeatedly after having said their goodbyes. Mohit Beotra, head, brand and media, Bharti Airtel, says, "The TVCs showcase our new services and the new brand value of Airtel. The TVCs will be on-air for four to six weeks and will be followed by other campaigns, wherein we shall talk about more exciting and new services we have for our consumers."

Although MTNL and BSNL have been in this game for a while, but their presence is as untouched as today’s government who made sure that the auction of 3G spectrum to be delayed at least by the number of years as is the age of Mr A.K. Hangal. Needless to say the corruption involved have made sure that the services aren’t gonna be provided at throw away price at least not in the initial periods.

So while most operator are preparing for a 3G embark, my service provider is focusing more into number portability system. Idea is focusing more on number portability which also started in Haryana and is expected to be launched in full flow by January next year. With the roll out of ‘Switch to Idea’ campaign, IDEA Cellular, the pan-India mobile operator, has affirmed that it is ready to enable Mobile Number Portability (MNP) on its network. Post the announcement of MNP launch on November 25th from Haryana circle, by the Government, Idea has taken the lead to make mobile consumers aware of the upcoming mobile portability service, through its latest campaign.

So what’s the reason behind Idea campaigning for number portability system, when the entire India is looking forward to 3G era. The reason could be that they are not ready yet to set a sail for 3G so they decided to board a different ship meanwhile which will help them to be in the competition while they built a Noah’s ark in backyard.

Whatever be the reason, finally after all hush mush 3G is a reality in Indian market and simultaneous launch of number portability is a good sign for customers to choose among the best. It is for the best I hope. So get started and stream and chat and talk and stay close to family and friends more than you were ever.

Happy Ending…


Mobile Phones have revolutionized the way we live. It certainly has gone a complete makeover since its initial debut and the current phase also tells the story of its evolution. It is no longer a device just for talking and messaging. Connectivity is no longer an issue and the plus point of entertainment embedded in it makes it a complete gadget of all times.

Whatever is your interest and liking and your budget, there is a mobile phone waiting for you at the store as per your need. A number of players are in the market today that manufactures world class mobile phones.

To classify them in categories, I would say we have 3 categories for mobile phones.

Tier I: Termed as Smartphones. Range from Rs. 15000 and above. Touch Screen, Qwerty, Social Networking Integration, 3G enabled, Data connectivity and transfer capability. Multimedia Player, Gaming etc.

Tier II: Middleware Mobile Phones. Range from Rs. 5000 – 15000. Touch Screen, Qwerty, Social Networking Integration, Data transfer capability, Multimedia capable, Gaming etc.

Tier III. Lower end phones. Range less than Rs. 5000. Basic features like calls, messaging, FM radio, PIM etc.

Here I will focus on players that have changed the world with this evolutionary gadget that is now a part of our everyday life.

This company is my fav if you ask. This is one company that has brought glamour and technology together in one gadget. Never before one has thought of smartphones the way they are today. If you talk of style and brand and quality, I will blindfoldedly opt for an Apple iPhone.

This finnish company has ruled the mobile market for long. Their product’s quality, reliability and easy interface makes it stand out well ahead of all competitors.Also the symbian OS has done miracles to them.

This is another player who has its reach to the masses when it comes to mobiles. Advance technology and stylish design are its USP. Though it went down in terms of research n development in between but recent releases shows that the wait is worth.

Another significant player in the mobile market. It has some customized and personalized series (like Walkman and Cyber Shot ) that made mobile phone to be used an entertainment device. As of today, it is the fourth largest mobile manufacturer in the world.

It has produced a class smartphone under the tag Blackberry. If you are in the corporate world, it is very likely for you to own one. BlackBerry is mainly a messaging phone with the largest array of messaging features in a Smartphone today. This includes auto-text, auto-correct, text prediction, support for many languages, keyboard shortcuts, text emoticons, push email, push facebook and Myspace notifications, push Ebay notifications, push instant messaging with BlackBerry Messenger, Google Messenger, ICQ, Windows Live messenger and Yahoo Messenger.

This company started in 1997 and made a strong push towards hand held devices. It has brought some of the finest technologies to wireless mobile world. Initially it produced window based phones, but recently it has shifted its interest towards Android also.

Other players also exist like LG, HTC, Motorola, iMate, O2 but I have my eyes set on these key players which I think are and will revolutionize the wireless technology.

So whether you are a coporate person or a music freak or likes to carry your digital media with you or just an average joe who likes to talk and messages, you are sure to find a phone for you today as per your need and budget.


So July is about to end. Well, this wasn’t a very great month for me but the ending is going fine so “All’s well if ends well”.

So let’s start the journey of my pathetic start when the appraisals were announced and the company settled with the decisions of giving peanuts to employees as it is good for health. Well, I’m allergic to peanuts in that way. A lot more were too. But nothing happened. Then started the series of long conversations, brain storming sessions with colleagues and managers, low performance after effects, complaints from either side, promises and all that. It all lead to a dead end. Then mid way I decided to move on and still trying to move on.

Next in line is that this month my writing abilities were paralyzed and I now see around 9 articles drafted and resting in my kitty. I was too busy sorting official issues that I didn’t get time to think over. But now I’m out of the grudge mode and trying to be back on track. Parties, movies, trekking, novels – a whole lot of stuff I did in the last 15 days and am feeling good now. Although my account balance is showing a steep decline – worst over the last few months but that’s all right. There are no free lunches in this world and materialistic happiness is as important as any other spiritual stuff (I’m not a hermit for god sake, I like to enjoy.)

Next weekend am going home so that’s very good news. Also I bought a brand new Samsung Galaxy S GT-I9000 with costs a fortune but I bought it for my “feel good factor” and seriously it did have a positive effect on me. I am too eager to show my prized ownership to my family. I am writing a review on the phone with the perspective of an Indian consumer and will post it very soon once I am through with the features of the phone.

Well I guess this is it. Too much of detail is uncalled for so I’ll end it here. This post is meant to serve as filler for my oath of posting at least one article a month. I hope August will revive my spirit from the ashes. Fingers crossed.

Adieu Dear Friends.
