My fish tank is alive now!

Siamese fighting fish, Fighter
My fish tank

After a long time of 15 months, my fish tank had new visitors todayOne dark purple colored Siamese fighting fish (Fighter) and 18 Glowlight tetras. Tomorrow I will bring some Neon tetras.

All this time, I use to miss my fish a lot. Last year I transferred my fish to Alibag, in a well on my Uncle’s farm. They are really enjoying the well. They grow fast without any distortion in color or any diseases in a well, and live a healthy life. The group consisted of Albino Sucker Catfish, Kissing Gourami, Albino Clarias, Orange colored Koi and a Gold Fish.

The best fish I ever had was a pair of Silver Arowana. They were beautiful, but were killed by two pairs of cheap tiger fish. Even today I hate tiger fish, and will never ever bring one in my tank.

CRAB GT

CRAB GT
Sketch of a Sports Car - CRAB GT.

I forgot the side view mirrors.

I don’t know why? But the front-end with those headlamps look somewhat like a crab, so I named it CRAB GT.

The alloy wheel design has to do nothing with Nazism, that is a also a religious symbol for Hindus called “Swastik” (I am writhing this because I was bombarded with the same question, when my friends saw this image)

The Black Anniversary of 26/7 Mumbai floods.

26/7

Here I am writing this post about 26/7, the worst floods Mumbai ever encountered.

Same time last year I was sitting on a truck surrounded with water, nowhere to go, and I was not alone.

I was certainly not afraid of death, but was concerned about my parents.

Flashback:
25/7 (2005)Got new Job. Entirely new fieldSearch Engine Marketing. I am a Mechanical Engineer and had a work experience of three and half years as a production engineer in Navi Mumbai. Working in front of a computer on internet the whole day was a new experience, but I was always interested in IT.

26/7
8.00 am – Took my quarterly railway pass from Thane to Bandra.

1.00 pmLunch time.

2.45 pmThe Call. My mother called me and informed me about the floods and the current situation then (My mother is like my personal news network, whatever happens in Mumbai or nearby areas such as floods, riots, blastsI get it at the earliest.). I informed my senior colleague about this problem and with his kind permission…..

3.00pm - Me and my friend Jayesh left office. I live in Kalwa (Thane), some 22 km’s away, but Jayesh lives in Dombivily which is some 18-19 km from my house.

3.15pm – We arrived at Bandra station. While coming, we saw water logged everywhere. Anyhow we got a train to Dadar.

3.25pmDadar station was full of water; the rail-tracks were drowned under the flood water. Platform no.-1 was packed with people; even the overhead bridge was packed. We somehow managed our way to the boarding area on that platform.

3.30pmLuckily a Kurla-destined train arrived. The whole human-mass was trying to board that train. This is a common problem in Mumbai, but that time it was 10x times more. I have a good experience of boarding crowded trains, as I completed my engineering at Dadar, so I was standing at the right place. While boarding the train I was pushed inside automatically but Jayesh was thrown outwards. And we were separated. I was alone in the train, and was thinking about Jayesh.

3.50pmArrived at Kurla station, and the trains paused. The water was logged heavily, and the trains just can’t move further. Now my always thinking brain started thinking more more and more. I decided to take the roadway.

4.05pmleft Kurla station and started walking towards the main road. Water level approximately ½ feet. There were lots of peoples, walking in a row, which is important in such situations, as there might be pot-holes and open drains, enough to take lives.

4.25pm - The water level was above 4 feet’s. I crossed an area with strong water current, all of us made a train-like formation holding each other by shoulders. At the starting some people were taking it as fun. By now there wasthat look” on everyone’s face, that expressionless cold look.

4.45pmFinal Stop. my height – 6 feet, Water level approximately 4½ feet, it was too much for others, No one can go any further. I can't swim. I with two other peoples sat on a Maruti Omini Van. The top came down by 4”. I sat there for 10min.

4.55pm – The water was up to my waist in sitting position over the van. I decided to get over a truck with a hard top standing some 10 feet’s away from me. There was a rikshaw in between. I jumped on the rik, over the front rod. All riks were sunk up to the top; with there leather top bulged like balloons. Then I made my move and climbed at the top and sat there with others. The view was like; water everywhere, as if I was at the center of a huge long lake.

5.15pmNow uptill 7.00pm I saw water rising to almost top of big trucks, BEST buses. Before that the people in those buses were rescued by the locals and moved to nearby buildings. I forgot to mention that it was raining heavily, all the time with winds.

7.00pmI knew I was not going to die, but I was concerned about my parents. I knew that my parents might be in worst situation, mentally. My area never suffers from floods. This was the second day of my new job, and the most stupid thing I did was I had my file with all the certificates which I should have kept at home. I was wet, trying to cover my bag. My leather shoes were soaked in water. There was a group of 12-15 peoples standing on a small truck. With water raised up to limits, those peoples were standing with water up to there knees(they were standing all night long in the same position, just imagine how hard that could be.).

27/7
9.00amLast night was the worst night in my life. Water level started decreasing. I started my journey again. This time the water had dead corpses floating everywhere. I passed by many dead bodies, some 7-8. The view was horrifying……….. A man was searching his son……… An old woman was crying, sitting near her son’s body.

10.00amGhatkopar, after a long time, a public telephone booth was visible, but there was a long line of some 20 peoples. I stood in the bin the hope that I could call my parents. There were problem in phone lines. No one was able to call. Luckily it worked for me; my father was on the line. When he heard my voice, he called my mother loudly towards the phone. There was a mixture of feelings in his voice. My mother started crying; I told here, that I survived and am coming home. Suddenly people started shouting at me. One of them told me that “tell your parents that your are alive, other are waiting.

2.00pmFinally home sweet home, and this time it was much sweeter than ever. But there was still the shadow of sorrow visible when I entered the building. Each and every door was open with a person standing at the door, many of them waiting for there family members or asking the wellbeing of there neighbors.

Jayesh went to his aunt’s house in Dadar (E), many of my office colleagues stayed in the office itself, some 6-8 suffered like I did.

I had similar experience in 1997-98, when Mumbai flooded and I have to walk all the way from Dadar to my home through knee deep water. Those were my collage days. But this situation was nothing compared to 26/7, it was 4x.drastic.

700 Dead, 54 still missing, Is this nature or human trying to be god!

This is too much……..

This is the longest post I have ever written on my blog. I hate long posts.

The Black Anniversary of 26/7 Mumbai floods.

Currently Playing “AGE of EMPIRES III”, I decided not to, but can’t resist!

AGE of EMPIRES 3
AGE of EMPIRES III
My resolution was not to play high-end games until I upgrade my computer.
But!
I had the Game CD’s in my hand and it happened. I installed it and started playing.

Every time after starting the game I get a message:
Your video hardware is below the recommended minimum requirements”, but then too, I play and push my computer up to limits.

I don’t know whether I will complete it, because I am working on my site which will take lot of time, plus the increasing work load.

Statutory Warning: Playing Computer Games is injurious to eyes, wastage of time and an addiction. (But you can spare 15-20 min. per day, if you can’t resist, especially games like “AGE of EMPIRES III”, that’s what I think)

Bad News and Good News. Juan Pablo Montoya left McLaren Mercedes and even Formula One, and switched to NASCAR for the 2007 season.

Juan Pablo MontoyaLast SundayJuan Pablo Montoya” (Team - McLaren) surprised the F1 community by announcing his departure from not just McLaren, but from Formula One altogether.
He plans to make his debut in the U.S. based stock car series - NASCAR for the year 2007 with “Chip Ganassi Racing” team.

Today for the French GP at Magny-Cours, he was replaced byPedro de la Rosa”.

His contract with McLaren lasts till the end of this year, and it seems that McLaren will not allow him to participate in any testing programs for NASCAR up till the end of there contract.

This was a real bad news, because he was a talented driver and was on the list of top 5 F1 drivers.

The good news is that this might ignite my interests in NASCAR. I would be exciting to watch Juan Pablo Montoya” drive in NASCAR, with cars bumping into each other.

My blog got a Google Page Rank(PR) of 3, and my site got PR2 !

My blog got a Google Page Rank(PR) of 3, and my site got PR2 !
Just came from office, an hour ago.
Today I was down, I don’t know whether it was the frustrating train travel or something else.
I switched on my PC, and clicked on my blogs URL from my homepage, and Boom!

Google Page Rank (PR) Update just took place.
PR3 - http://www.amol-v-naik.blogspot.com (My blogIts my life! my world!)
PR2http://www.xquar.com (My Site, although the theme is yet to be decided)

Before leaving office it was 0.

Many people don’t know the importance of Google Page Rank for a specific webpage.
As a Search Engine Optimizer (SEO), its music to my ear’s, b this time I didn’t do any link popularity campaign or never used any other techniques generally used in Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

Just because I don’t have time, I hardly get time to post on this blog.

Getting PR2 is easy, PR3 less easy, PR4not much difficult but considerably easy.
But
After that, it’s a difficult task, only link popularity, proper internal linking and content helps.

Content is the Key to Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

Now, I don’t want to talk much about SEO, because then I need to start another blog for it, for which I don’t have time.

Its My Life!

Its my life

It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just wanna live while I'm alive
It's my life

This is for the ones who stood their ground
For Tommy and Gina who never backed down
Tomorrow's getting harder make no mistake
Luck ain't even lucky
Got to make your own breaks

It's my life
And it's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive
'Cause it's my life

Better stand tall when they're calling you out
Don't bend, don't break, hell, don't back down

It's my life
And it's now or never

Its difficult to terrify the citizens of Mumbai! Aamchi Mumbai!

Just came from office (Bandra, Pali Naka). Although there were considerably less travelers visible. But while I reached Thane the numbers increased.

Yesterday(mumbai 7/11) there were total eight Bomb Blasts on the Western Suburb Railway. All in Railway Compartments.

Mumbai has become the next Srinagar, and People are used to such catastrophes. People were acting as if nothing has happened.

Yesterday the conditions were different. I was in my office the whole night with colleagues. There was chaos everywhere. We were safe in the Office, but everyone was concerned about there family / relatives. First of all many of the mobile service providers blocked the telephone lines. I received many calls from my relatives from all over Maharashtra asking for my wellbeing, same case with my colleagues. Everyone had there cell phone stuck to there ears for more than 2 hrs immediately after the blasts.

Many people died, I don’t believe the news channels declaring some 200 death casualties. That was rush hour, were the railway compartments are stuffed with people just like LPG filled in cylinders.

Many are still missing.

Humans are the most Filthy creatures on Earth, Earth would have been a better place without humans!
