I almost broke my finger


Oopss! It was a bad evening and a weird typing now. Yes, I almost broke my right pointing finger accidentally. But fortunately I almost had the luck of not breaking it completely and saving a lot of doctor fee ๐Ÿ™‚ It really hurt me badly at that moment.

Right, here is what happened this evening. My friends and me decided to have dinner in one of our favorite Chinese restaurant located at downtown. We drove to that place from our apartment, we’re having some interesting discussion going on while driving (I’m not gonna tell about the discussion though :-!)

It was my bad time started then, with the hot discussion on; I got out of the car in direction i was sitting. I didn’t bother to take my hands complete out and gave the door complete push with my other hand. Thanks to my friend who drove the car; he locked the door as soon as everyone is out. See how hurry people are in ๐Ÿ™ It was the moment my pain climbed the rocket high. Damn, my finger was almost stuck between the car door. And I couldn’t help myself because of central lock ๐Ÿ™ I believe it would be around 30 sec I was held helpless.

Thanks to my friends who realized what went wrong and came into the rescue. I really appreciate their help. I was almost exhausted with the pain! We did have a hard time to figure out if the finger is broken or not. All were worried since if we’re getting to a hospital for any reason, they are going to charge no less than 1000$. They will start with X-ray blah.. blah.. etc.. and will never give a immediate attention unless it is urgent.

Even though with these constraints, I decided to try some hospital near by. But my luck on the way to hospital i tried few basic hand movements and confirmed it is not broke and is only a minor injury. Thank you god ๐Ÿ™‚ Well.. then I have to grow my confidence a little bit and started to drive away the pain. We dropped the hospital plan and saved some big bucks. On the way back, we go the first aid bandage from a pharmacy. After that i was feeling much better than I was.

Before ending, I would like to share few precautionary measures while getting out of the car.

  • Don’t fall into deep discussion that takes away your attention while getting out of the car.
  • Make sure you use the same hand toward the direction you sit to close the door. That will make sure all your stuff is out ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Don’t close the door too harsh. It might save you from getting hurt badly.

Finally, we didn’t miss the dinner at Chinese ๐Ÿ™‚ I had Shrimp Fry Rice finally but had to take it slow with my almost broken finger!

Top 7 reasons why I joined IT

Have you ever wondered why people choose IT as their career? Well here are the facts on why I joined IT.

  1. I hated sleep.
  2. I had enjoyed my life enough.
  3. I couldn’t live without tension.
  4. I wanted to pay for my sins.
  5. I believed in Bhagwad Geeta: In Hindi “karm karo, phal ki ichha na karo.” (English translation, “do your work don’t expect anything”)
  6. Everything in life has a reason; i wanted to prove it wrong.
  7. I wanted to take revenge on myself.

Shrimp Curry Special

If you wanted to make a spicy Shrimp/Prawn Curry and didn’t now how to; Here is instructions to make it happen. You know what I’m not a Cook at all ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m a beginner and I believe it would be easy for you to learn it from beginner rather than from an expert ๐Ÿ™‚ just kidding

Before me letting you know the steps, I have to give the credits.! And here goes the list, first friend of mine Seshadri, he is the one who provided timely instruction and offered much help and Rajkumar, our chief cook and guru and expert who served as inspiration behind this effort.


Ingredients:

  • Frozen or Raw Prawn / Shrimp
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons ginger and garlic paste
  • Large chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon iodized salt
  • 1/2 green pepper
  • 1 jalapeรฑo
  • V8 vegetable juice (added in place of tomato )
  • cinnamon added for smell
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon mustard seed

Detailed Instructions :

  1. Peel the shrimp and remove the tails. Clean it with water.
  2. Fry roast the mustard seed with cumin in oil and add the green pepper and jalapeรฑo during the course.
  3. Add the chopped onion to the mix and allow it to fry.
  4. Add the curry powder, chili powder and fry for a further 2 to 3 minutes on low heat
  5. Add the vegetable juice and stir gently
  6. Add the ginger garlic paste and cinnamon and stir well with salt
  7. Let it simmer for 10- 15 minutes
  8. Add the shrimp/ prawns and cook for further 10- 15 minutes until the prawns are cooked

I missed to add cilantro at the final step but make sure you don’t.

Wow..!!! now you’re ready with the tasty shrimp curry…. this is how I made it ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks again to Seshadiri but the point here to be noted is Seshadiri is a pure vegetarian ๐Ÿ™‚

Writing and Talking, is there a real difference?


I read about an interesting post by Andrew Sparrow. The author quotes,

Some people are writers. Some people are talkers

I believe this statement is very true. Some people are at the best only when they are with voice while others are good enough with writing itself.
I personally think I’m a good writer rather than being good talker. But this is not proven all time. Sometimes I’m good at talking with the group I know rather than writing. I keep fluctuating on what I’m that makes the difference.

What is your opinion about the same?
