Quiz: Love, Lust or Infatuation?

You scored as Love, This is love, you are not first here, they are. Communication is a must, without it you have nothing. If you can’t talk to them, and they can’t listen and really care about how you feel, then maybe you should be looking elsewhere. Love is giving 100% in both directions. You need to fuel each other’s fires, so the love will continue to burn for, now until forever. Don’t let the fire burn out.Love is free as the butterflies, which live for moments, only to bring joy to others. click

Trompe l’oeil : An art form

Trompe l’oeil (Fooling the eye) is an artistic technique used to create anamorphic illusions, which use perspective constructions to generate what looks like a trick. You usually feel the effect while viewing it from a certain point. Swiss artist Felice Varini is arguably the best such artist in the world. If you still don’t get what I’m talking about…these images below will help you get an idea-

1) Viewed from the vantage point, it looks like a painted glass partition set in the corridor.

2) Viewed from another angle, you can make out the designs which lead to the illusion

He has implemented many such projects, even one which covered the entire port at the Cardiff Bay in concentric circles. Find more of these on his website ( Its entirely in French, so you’ll have to use your intuition a bit.

Entrepreneur Meet

Finally managed to make it to the Bangalore Entrepreneur Meet this month.
And it turned out to be a great experience. The venue was Cha Bar (Leela Palace Hotel on Airport Road). I went in with expectations of a low turnout, but was thankfully turned wrong. It was great, and I can go on and on and on about it, but I guess I’d rather just talk about some of those who were present-

Me . Well I guess you all know enough, so I shall spare you of more details:P

An ex employee of Singapore Civil Services, also a native of Bangalore, who’s been a successful entrepreneur in both web based an brick & mortar businesses. He also teaches wealth creation management in top institutes in Singapore and India, and wants to contribute this knowledge to nurture new entrepreneurs.

A financial technologist (I never heard of this before, but I guess it may exist), who calls himself an outsourced CFO (Im sure no one heard of this before! ). What he basically does is this, he offers his services as a part time CFO to various tech companies with a size below 5 mn $. These companies don’t have the money to hire a full time CFO, and usually get the work done by their CA at the low end, or a financial consultancy at the high end. A CA doesn’t have the required domain knowledge, and financial consultancies bill you and go away. This is where he comes in handy. He has required domain knowledge, and he becomes a part of the company board, taking equal responsibility to run it. Very innovative model indeed!

An ebay superseller, who also runs a small BPO setup and a small web design company. Typical Gujarati enterprising spirit

A guy who’s part of a team which is trying to emulate something like a for India, basically a website where people donate money to small time entrepreneurs to help them kickstart their business and make a living.

An exporter of herbal essences and related products.

A guy from a company which provides consultancy and assistance to businesses looking to raise money, helping them get the best deal.

A girl working at a market research company, which conducts end user researchs for its client’s products, finding out how they can be improved to provide greater satisfaction to the end user.

Several others, including those employed in various companies, looking at entrepreneurship as an options.

Also noticeable were couple of boys just out of school who’re planning to take on Google! (Thats the spirit!)

All in all a fabulous meet, with all wishing to participate actively and turn it out into something useful.

Way back into love lyrics (Music and Lyrics OST)

Hugh Grant – Way Back Into Love lyrics

I’ve been living with a shadow overhead
I’ve been sleeping with a cloud above my bed
I’ve been lonely for so long
Trapped in the past
I just can’t seem to move on

I’ve been hiding all my hopes and dreams away
Just in case I ever need them again someday
I’ve been setting aside time
To clear a little space in the corners of my mind

All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can’t make it through without a way back into love
Oh oh oh

I’ve been watching but the stars refuse to shine
I’ve been searching but i just don’t see the signs
I know that it’s out there
There’s got to be something for my soul somewhere

I’ve been looking for someone to shed some light
Not somebody just to get me through the night
I could use some direction
And I’m open to your suggestions

All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can’t make it through without a way back into love
And if I open my heart again
I guess I’m hoping you’ll be there for me in the end

Oh oh oh

There are moments when I don’t know if it’s real
Or if anybody feels the way I feel
I need inspiration
Not just another negotiation

All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can’t make it through without a way back into love
And if I open my heart to you
I’m hoping you’ll show me what to do
And if you help me to start again
You know that I’ll be there for you in the end

Oh oh oh

Spiderman 3

First was good, because it was the first.
Second was good, but not so good.
Third is way better than first and second!
Spiderman is not your typical hero, who just beats up the bad guys.
He’s a very ordinary guy, suspect to feelings of hate and revenge and totally unaware of how to deal with girls
Its a continuation of the main plot of the first in the series, tying up some left over loose ends.
The bad guys are also awesome…quite befitting for our superhero. And when they double team against spidey, only some outside help is able to get him out of the trouble.
Won’t reveal more…will spoil the fun!

Ufff Gawwwd!
I thought I could handle a lot but it just gets too much sometimes!
Was discussing one business plan with Rachael online, when Nik aka Mr Bobo (another entrepreneurial soul like me) came up to further the discussion I had with him yday at his office. I thought…ok, busy times. Then my lil cousin who’s having summer holidays started bugging me to play with him.
So here I was, discussing 2 business plans simultaneously and playing Uno with my cousin!
