What difference do you spot between the below two?

Sab Ka Data

With all due respect..."Sab Ka Data" sounds very different to a tech guy than a normal man. Or perhaps the car sticker was talking about something else! ;p

Ooh you can spot my reflection in there! I'm famous!!

A working man's prayer

Oh! God, Grant me...

The courage to change the things I cannot accept,

And the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill today
because they pissed me off.

And also, help me to be careful of the toes I step on today as they
may be connected to the arse that I may have to kiss tomorrow.

Help me to always give 100 percent at work... 12 percent on Monday, 23
percent on Tuesday, 40 percent on Wednesday, 20 percent on Thursday
and 5 percent on Fridays.

And help me to remember that... When I ' m having a really bad day and
it seems that people are trying to piss me off, That it takes 42
muscles to frown, And only four to extend my middle finger and tell
them to swivel.

I was surfing looking for the laptop, I get to this page where Dell boldly says that their computers are highly customizable "Customizable to amplify any mood" and right below that is "The product is unavailable". Total KLPD!

Petrol vs Diesel: And the Economies of Scale

A brilliant article about the cost of owning a vehicle @ ZigWheels.

by Ravi Ved and Dilip Desai Pictures: Kunal Khadse Posted on 18 Nov 2011

For people who are still contemplating on whether to buy a Petrol or Diesel car J

Case - 1

With the prices of petrol skyrocketing, car buyers seem to be lining up to book diesel variants as they are highly economical and easy on the pocket compared to their gasoline counterparts. Well, that is only if you discount everything else and consider the running cost. We at ZigWheels take a look at the bigger picture and bring it down to simple numbers to find the cost-effective option between petrol and diesel fueled variant

We did the math to compare the cost of operation for an entry level Maruti Suzuki Swift petrol with the diesel variant. The difference in the cost of the two variants is Rs. 90,000 with diesel being the more expensive of the two; add to that the interest one would gain on the excess amount at 10% p.a if the petrol variant was purchased. The diesel variant being more efficient and the cost of diesel being Rs. 20/litre lesser than that of petrol, it saves a lot of expenses on fuel (See Case 1), but the cost of regular maintenance of the diesel variant is higher than that of its petrol equivalent. Taking all these dynamics into account, the running cost of a petrol car comes to approximately Rs. 4.93/km in comparison to Rs. 9.5/km for the diesel if both the vehicles are run for 15000kms annually. Increasing the annual mileage put on the odometer, the diesel is at par with the petrol variant if and only if a person does a minimum of 45,000kms annually.

CASE - 2

Low running? Wait for longer to recover costs

Now, it is understandable that an average Indian cannot put 45,000kms on the odometer annually considering the average run of an Indian being around 15,000kms per year. So does that totally rule out the diesel option? Well, no. Reverse calculating the amount of money saved on fuel (See: Case 2) by using a diesel car amounts to Rs. 30,500 annually after deduction of service costs for both the vehicles. Even so, after adding interest on the additional amount paid by a buyer at the time of purchase the diesel would be at par with the petrol variant mid-way through the third year. At the end of the fourth year with an annual running of 15,000kms, the money you would have saved in terms of running costs in a diesel would cover up the extra price you have paid, and you would have saved an extra Rs 9,700 as well. Only at the end of the fifth year do things begin to look rosy for diesels, with around Rs 40,000 saved in running costs over these five years.

What about depreciation?

Alright, so you finally made up the extra amount you spent in the initial invest of a diesel car, but what about depreciation? Assuming that both the variants have been reduced to half their cost after 5 years, you will still be losing more money in depreciation for the diesel, since it was a more expensive buy to start with.

The value of a Rs 4.95 lakh petrol car will be reduced by Rs 2.47 lakh at the end of five years. The value of a Rs 5.85 lakh diesel car on the other hand will be reduced by Rs 2.92 lakh – that’s Rs 45,000 lost straight in depreciation for a diesel.

This is an extreme scenario, we accept. The market dynamics for more-in-demand second hand diesel car space may result in lesser depreciation, and a better resale price. Either ways, the Rs 40,000 that a diesel user may gain after using the car for five years starts looking less rosy once you factor in depreciation as well.

Although, with the price of petrol is as high as Rs. 70/litre, the diesel may seem like a more affordable option, it may not necessarily be so. The diesel starts making economic sense for users who either have a run of 45,000kms annually or those who plan to retain the car for atleast five years or till the time they hit 50,000 kms on the odometer. And for those who have much less travelling to do in a car, the petrol still makes for a better buy.

What about the feel factor?

Although mathematics seem to be in favour of a petrol car unless you plan to retain a diesel for a prolonged period or drive seriously long distances within the first year itself, it is clear that the choice between petrols and diesels also has other angles that must be considered before making that final call.

Psychological satisfaction is of utmost importance to an Indian customer; and along with it comes the mental peace of not having to refuel a diesel car every few days unlike the petrol equal which is pretty much perpetually thirsty. But, simply the fact that the diesel needn’t be refueled very frequently doesn’t make it a more economical option. A diesel starts making sense only when you have a run of at least 15,000kms anything less than that and diesel will smartly fool you into feeling richer just because you end up filling fuel less frequently. 

It is not just the thirst for fuel of petrol cars that brings diesel vehicles into the lime light. The numbers before you clearly state, that you should consider buying a diesel only if your monthly run exceeds a 1000 kilometres. In fact our thesis was endorsed by Toyota at the recent launch of the Etios and Liva diesels, where they made it very clear that for a diesel to start looking rosy; one has to run it for nearly 2000kms a month. The numbers are before you, so remember that with a diesel, you would still be paying that extra cash for the first three-four years of running for the satisfaction of driving a diesel. It still is a case of different strokes for different folks, and choice still remains in the hands of the buyer. Hope this article helps you make a more informed one.

Bagdadi funny sign

This is a typical sign in old restaurants such as Bagdadi @ Colaba, see map.

Click on the image to see bigger photo
"Food will not be served to Over drunken person"

The sign says "Food will not be served to OVER drunken person".
So the Logic goes - If you are drunken it is OK, but not if you are over drunken! Who decides that, the manager of course, so the house always wins! Damn the manager must have a background of a Casino Management.

Don't know what is Bagdadi? I highly recommend to check out Bagdadi menu and reviews on Burrp!

Speak Like Sean Connery

Wanna speak like Sean Connery, say the below line...

When to Pray

Pride of Sea Captain painting by Linda Cabrera
There is a story of a sea captain who in his retirement skippered a boat taking day-trippers to Shetland Islands.

On one trip, the boat was full of young people. They laughed at the old captain when they saw him say a prayer before sailing out, as the day was fine and the sea calm.

However they weren't long at sea when a storm suddenly blew up and the boat began to roll & pitch violently.
The terrified passengers came to the captain and asked him to join them in prayer. But he replied, "I say my prayers when it's calm. When it's rough I attend to my ship."

Here is a lesson for us......
If we cannot seek God in quiet moments of our lives; we are not likely to find him when trouble strikes. We are more likely to panic. But if we have learnt to seek him and trust him in quiet moments, then we most certainly will find him when the going gets rough !

Renault and Ford are working on a new small car for women, which should be far less susceptible to theft.

They are mixing the Renault Clio and the Ford Taurus, calling it the "Clitaurus."

The average male thief won't be able to find it, let alone operate the damn thing!

Don't say the Government doesn't care

LOL...this is quite mean actually

Don't say the Government doesn't care

    Letter from the PM -

        Due to the current financial situation caused by the slowdown of the
        economy, your Government has decided to implement a scheme to put
        workers 50 years of age and older on early retirement. This scheme
        will be known as RAPE (Retire Aged People Early).
        Persons selected to be RAPED can apply to the government to be eligible
        for the SHAFT scheme (Special Help After Forced Termination).
        Persons who have been RAPED and SHAFTED will be reviewed under the
        SCREW program (Scheme Covering Retired Early Workers). A person may be
        RAPED once, SHAFTED twice and SCREWED as many times as the government
        deems appropriate.
        Only persons who have been RAPED can get AIDS (Additional Income for
        Dependents & Spouse) or HERPES (Half Earnings for Retired Personnel
        Early Severance). Obviously, persons who have AIDS or HERPES will not
        be SHAFTED or SCREWED any further by the government.
        Persons who are not RAPED and are staying on, will receive as much SHIT
        (Special High Intensity Training) as possible. The government
        has always prided itself in the amount of SHIT it gives out. Should
        you feel that you do not receive enough SHIT, please bring this to the
        attention of your local MP. They have been trained to give you all the
        SHIT you can handle.

Just Look up


If you put a buzzard in a pen that is 6 feet by 8 
feet and is entirely open at the top, the
bird, in spite of its ability to fly, will
be an absolute prisoner. The reason is
That a buzzard always begins a flight from the ground
with a Run of 10 to 12 feet. Without space
to run, as is its habit, It will not even
attempt to fly, but will remain a prisoner
for life in a small jail with no top.


The ordinary bat that flies around at night, a
remarkable nimble creature in the air,
cannot take off from a level place.
If it is placed on the floor or flat
ground, all it can do is shuffle about
helplessly and, no doubt, painfully, until it
reaches some slight elevation from which it can
throw itself into the air. Then, at once, it
takes off like a flash.


A bumblebee, if dropped into an open tumbler, will
be there until it dies, unless it is taken out.
It never sees the means of escape at the
top, but persists in trying to find some way out
through the sides near the bottom.. It
will seek a way where none exists, until it
completely destroys itself..


In many ways, we are like the buzzard, the bat, and
the bumblebee. We struggle about with all our
problems and frustrations, never realizing that
all we have to do is look up! That's the
Answer, the escape route and the solution to any problem! Just look up.

Sorrow looks back, Worry looks around, But faith looks up!

Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly and
trust in our Creator who loves us.
