The new Facebook template for your blog !

I just made this new design for my blog and i m feeling pretty happy about it. I know a lot of geeks are ready to grab it for their own too. But, sorry guys it is not exactly available for download. You will have to follow this step to step guide i made for u to get the end result.

1. First, get a decent image processing software like photoshop or atleast

2. Take a snapshot of an open FB page so that u can pick the exact same colours for ur header.

3.The font used in the facebook logo is called 'Klavika'. I found it on

4. Once u have created an image file for the header, here comes the tricky part. When u try to replace the blog title with the image, it does not goes till the boundaries and is usually distorted. So i replaced the blog title with a 'transparent' gif image made in

5. Go to blogger's new template designer and go to background tab. Here, upload the image u created earlier in background. Don't forget to uncheck the 'tile' option and check the 'move image with page' option.

6. Remember, u should create a file that's long enough horizontally so that it covers the full screen on larger monitors. Mine is 1366 pixels long, though 1600 would have been better.

7. To remove the blogger navbar, got to the 'edit html' tab on the 'design' page and add this code (in green) in the header just below the template details (in blue)..

Blogger Template Style
Name: ABC
Designer: XYZ

 #navbar-iframe { display: none !important;}

/* Variable definitions

8. To change the default blogger icon on the title bar, u need to make a new icon of ur choice. U can convert it into the '.ico' format using

9. Read this post from blogger in draft on changing ur favicon and follow their simple instruction.

Happy Blogging !

The new face of political barbarism : Ramdev ?

I am not a very saintly person. But i occasionally get a little shouty-douty when the clerk at the railway station does backdoor reservations at the expense of those standing in the queue. I really swear though, the thing that never crossed my mind yet is to 'hang the clerk by neck till death' ..or maybe 'make him do kapalbhati till he kills himself'. Well, it crossed the mind of the honorable and graceful saint shown on left. It must be right i think, as lakhs of people are said to be supporting him in his 'satyagraha'.

I don't mind whatever the hell he might have spent on the AC pandals or shit. There are lots of genius people around who want to buy more and more of ramdev special chyavanprash and other premium horseshit. Atleast he had earned it by making a fool of genuine fools. I can't give any more crap about it.

The thing that hits me is the way he asks for death sentence for freakin everything. Now what the hell happened to it being 'rarest of rare' cases that are allowed execution ? Ours is a death sentence obsessed nation. The law is considered a mere tool of taking revenge. Maybe it is the effect of the old Dharmendra movies with dialogues like.. "Bhagwaan kasam, jab tak tera khoon apne baap ki kabr pe nahi chadhaunga tab tak chain ki saans nahi loonga..!!!!!"  ( Kutteeeee !!!!!!!). Isn't he supposed to be a 'religious' guy.. or what they call a 'yogi' ? For somebody who claims to have achieved inner peace and whatever other shit, isn't this supposed to be freakin shameful for him ?

How you can bloody fight against corruption by teaching medicine and engineering in hindi, is a logic that hangs my processor everytime i give it a second try. And yeah, banning the 500 and 1000 rupee notes would be a real fine thing. Then i wont have to withdraw money from ATMs in 400-400 batches to get 100 rupee notes. It's really shameful when you show the 500 note to the canteen guy after drinking coffee for 5 rs. Still, i sometimes wonder.. how would the baba have payed for his five star satyagraha in 100 rs. banknotes. Huhh, maybe he used his platinum card. Like i care..

Well, Cruddy just got up after refreshing his mind with his evening dose of 'anulom-vilom' and now he is bugging me that he will hang me in the frontyard if i don't let him play GTA on the computer. I guess this is all for today. Gud night !

If Osama is dead.. show us the head !

The billboards have been flashing for a while now.. i don't even think that u needed to google up for the real story like i did. So here's the mixed bag of reactions that i have been digging up on google for a while...

People have new funny status updates to post on FB... I have been reading these ones over and over for some time now..

#What a country pakistan is...Even osama is nt safe there

#I nicknamed my girls G-spot 'Osama'. It took me almost ten years to find but when I did...

And then there's one blogger who claims that the same dead osama pic had been in circulation for a while.. 'what we have here is fake propaganda'

The comic book people have been going mad for quite some time. Here is a sneak peek at some of the tragedies that this disaster has created.. jobless US soldiers, more soldiersconspiracy theorists, some med students, ..and yes, some senti people too

: A picture of Osama and Saddam celebrating in heaven

As far as i am concerned, i kinda have my fingers crossed over the whole 'answer' thing that is expected to come up from the terrorists within what.. a week's time you say ? Till then, enjoy ur champagne and have a ball.. u never know how long we have till we go into red-alert again.

I wrote this one when i was in school. Found it while sifting through my old diaries... Don't take it seriously. I was 15 when i wrote this. If you don't know about the story of king ashoka, you can read it here 

The horses arrayed side by side,
And men keeping the fullest pride,
Having prayed to the kali,
We thus began to ride.

The war clouds went dark,
And owls began to shriek,
And we in camps, began rejoicing,
For the enemy was so weak.

It began to drizzle red,
And red were land and airs,
But neither victory, nor defeat,
Came our way, passed years.

With the doors of Kalinga still meeted,
Our enemy remained undefeated,
With the giant gates our head we beated,
No answer came, no battle repeated.
The answer came at last,
But what an answer it was !
For there was an army of the softer skin,
To slay them, was a justless win.

My weapons dropped, so did my shield,
And under grief i began to yield,
How many men i killed in vain ?
With deep remorse i left the field.

Whatever evil gives pleasure today,
Leads to grieving at the end of the day,
Once look at me, O men of earth,
Before you pass the war god's way.

I am the conqueror of ruins,
The emperor of the dead,
A loser in the most hateful way...
