She's not the Tennis Player

Another random facebook search for kicks threw funny results, just like the time when I had searched for Elisha Cuthbert and instead got all the members of the SGPC (Shiromani Gurudwara Prabhandak Committee) listed.

This time I searched for Sania Mirza, just to see if she might actually be on facebook and one quite funny profile I chanced upon was that of someone who's got a picture which says I'm NOT Sania Mirza, the Tennis player.

Link is here.

Puppet President

While watching the awesome and visually splendid Olympics opening cermony, as the Indian contingent of athletes passed by, my sister casually remarked that it was ironic that on the day of the Olympics, the President of the country was at the convocation ceremony in IIT Bombay, whilst the President of the ruling coalition government was instead sent to the Olympics among the VIPs for standing and waving at the cameras as our athletes passed by.

Quite an apt reflection of the importance of the President in our country. Not that gracing an important occasion as the convocation of a major university is 'meh', but it just might be when you compare it to the Olympics opening ceremony.

Night Club for Moonlighters

Yet another brilliant idea from the stables of harithekid. I'm surprised at how awesome I am!

Anyway, to move on to describing the idea, I was thinking of how we should start a 'night club' which will be a bar / discotheque / lounge and everything else for all those people who work at night and sleep during the day.

The most obvious target segment for this venture is the BPO crowd which has money to burn and would be game to spend it drinking and dancing away at the end of their shift before they head back home.

The night club will open at 0530 or 0600 hours, just around the time the milkman and the newspaper delivery boys start functioning and can go on till the regulation time during which the bar has to be closed, depending on which city it can be opened in.

Artificial lighting will ensure that the people who visit the bars early in the morning don't realize that the sun has risen, and proceed to get drunk instead. Once the job is done, they will not have problems going back home as transport will be abundantly available in the form of buses | taxis | auto rickshaws.

For those who want to drink compulsively regardless of the time of day, my venture will meet their requirements appropriately. Cops cannot have a problem since my business is being conducted during broad daylight, starting from sunrise.

If addressed the right way, I could try to have many chains of this concept night club opened up all over the place in Bangalore and in different cities thereafter and then laugh all the way to the bank.
