50 Posts & Counting…

Yep, today I completed publishing 50 Posts on Panorama.

It took me good 7 years to write 50 posts. I know, it took me a long time, but I will try my best that the next 50 will not take these many years.

I take this opportunity to thank all my dear readers. Individually on your comments, I may have not replied, but yes, thank you very much for visiting, following and reading my blog.

typos…oh my my…

With the increase use of smart phones and touch screens, and constant WhatsApping anytime, anywhere, many times I come across several typing errors. Sometimes the sentences are so hilarous that you just laugh out loud (really loud!). Here are some good ones that I remember…

X: I got the job 🙂
Y: wow
Z: Congratssss! Good lick
That’s how fate is…licky you see. 😉 Probably, where luck doesn’t, there lick works 😉 Well on a keyboard, u and i are adjacent–so are g and f. Those clumsy fungers may next time type Good *uck…and if considered seriously by our friend X, I am not sure if he/she would be promoted or fired.

X: I got engaged!!
Y: OMG u r a licky gurl!!!
Oh well I assume that’s why she is engaged 😀

Ok fear…well some dears are actual fears…

Hell Asma,
Greetings from xyz!
(She meant hello…but sent me to hell with greetings :O )

Im cuming
Oh Yes Baby Yesss…

X: Werz u tday
Y: on suck leave
X: wow…no comments…we aren’t lucky to get such leaves!!!

Think you,
Ok now that send across wrong signals…thank or think…if not thank then why & what are you thinking?

Thanks for meeting today…it was great gun…
(Fun not gun)

There isn’t an end to these errors. Among friends it is acceptable. But with colleagues or may be family, I am not sure what the reaction would be.

And there is use of emojis which also can be construed as extremely confusing.

You can share some of your LOL typo moments.

Well, there will be many more typos…so dear readers…’to be continued…’ 🙂

What The Crab!!!

Yes crab.

Today, I just happened to watch ‘Kahani Sanjay Sinha Ke Saath’ on Tez Channel and he narrated a beautiful story…

A crab is another crab’s enemy. Any fisherman after catching crabs need not worry to cover the basket – just place one crab over the other. That’s it. That’s the solution. Each crab will try to get off the basket, but as one reaches the top, the crab below pulls it down again and the cycle continues.

Sounds familiar?

Very true in the corporate world. Instead of leveraging a person, people pull you down, and further down.

A few learnings from Sinha’s narration today:

A. In distress a fish will try best to free itself from the traps of the fishing net, and may make it back to the sea, but a crab won’t.
B. Staying for long amidst crabs, you too can acquire that behaviour.
C. One can give only what one has. If you have good qualities, then you spread goodness. If you have bad qualities, then ugliness surrounds.
D. If someone you know has wings, help him/her fly.

Ladder of success is never crowded at the top. So reads my book cover. But will you reach that high?

I believe what goes around, comes around. Let someone fly and enjoy the view – some day you too will enjoy the flight against gravity…karma for sure has domino effect!
