Inundated with Candy Crush Saga, Farmville 2, Criminal Case requests? Block Apps by following these easy steps

These days, it's hard to avoid the continuous stream of requests that are directed to any user in the social networks, especially Facebook. Inexplicably, these requests normally come from the long lost school friend with whom you had last interacted a decade ago or in Indian case, your brother-in-law's sister-in-law's aunt and generally urge you to play Candy Crush Saga or Farm Heroes Saga or Criminal Case etc.

There are two ways to deal with these annoying notifications they send you on Facebook - 
  1. Unfriend and Block the person or
  2. Block the Application

If you follow the first option, the chances are that you'll be left with next to nothing friends on the social networks. So, the better option will be to block the application, so that it cannot send you further requests and/or notifications.

The process of blocking Candy Crush Saga/Pet Rescue Saga/FarmVille 2 or any such game from sending future notifications from friends takes all of 60 seconds at the maximum. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to do it.

Step 1: Login to your Facebook account. Of course, that is necessary. :)

Step 2: Go to any of the Invitations, which has been sent to you by a friend.

Top reasons why Jeetendra should have been bestowed with Dada Saheb Phalke Award

There were speculations this year that Jeetendra was the chosen one for Dada Saheb Phalke Award, which is generally awarded for the awardee's contribution to Indian cinema. In fact, on the night of 11th April, multiple news outlets ran the story of Jeetendra being conferred with the award.

Even India Today had run the news of Jeetendra
winning Dada Saheb Phalke.
This had created a lot of noise in the social media at least, and unfortunately for Jeetuji, most of it was negative.

The jury for choosing the Dada Saheb Phalke Awards probably got swayed by these negativity and decided to award Gulzar instead, thereby robbing us of a great opportunity to compile the list of Jeetendra's contributions to Indian cinema. In fact, I had almost prepared this list in my dreams, but the next morning got to know the sad news.

Anyway, Dada or No Dada, here is the list of Jeetendra's contributions to Indian film (and other) industry, for which, he may be considered for next year's awards - 
  1. For upholding the Indian "sanskar" by paying homage to our ancestors - "The Apes". He was instrumental in including monkey jumping routines in the Indian film industry.
  2. Because, with his monkey jumping, he had also proved Charles Darwin and his Theory of Evolution to be right.
  3. For creating an aura of awesomeness by wearing only white shoes, which never got muddied even when he was running through actual mud!
  4. For single handedly creating a new products line - White Shoe Polish and thereby helped in reducing unemployment in the country.
  5. For producing Ekta Kapoor, who had given respite to lacs of husbands across the country from their nagging wives for a considerable number of years.
  6. Again for Ekta Kapoor, who was instrumental in giving a boost to the TV sales across the country, as those lacs of husbands bought a second TV, so that they could watch their cricket or football matches.
  7. For Ekta Kapoor again, who has been keeping Indian wives happy with her K-serials and Indian husbands happy with her Sunny Leone movies. (Contributed by S.K. Bhaduri)
  8. For Tusshar Kapoor, who has given valuable lessons to all aspiring actors on how not to act.
I hope that the jury will take note of this list and will definitely have a change of heart the next time around!

My Internet Memes on Indian Parliamentary Election 2014

With the 2014 Indian Parliamentary Election on full swing, the slogan that has captivated the people across the country is, "Ab ki baar, Modi Sarkar", which literally means that the government with Modi at the helm will be elected this time around. This slogan has also generated a deluge of Internet memes and in this post, I have tried my hand at creating some.

Just for clarifications: Through these memes, I have neither attempted to disparage any person - dead or alive,  nor are these a part of any political campaigns.

#1. Borrowed from an iconic scene from the 1975 hit Deewar, where Vijay, played by Amitabh Bachchan enters a temple for the first time in his life.

#2. Another one from Deewar. Probably one of the most iconic scenes in the history of Hindi cinema, the one popularly known as "Mere paas maa hain!" Although most memes are rhyming, with this one, I did not care for rhymes (and reasons too)!

More coming soon. Watch this space.

How to get even with Idiots!

(Please note that this is not an original piece)
One morning, after her husband returned from fishing and had decided to take a nap, the wife thought of taking the boat out for a little ride of her own. Although not very familiar with the topography of the lake,  as she was visiting the the camping cum fishing site for the first time, she motored out to a short distance, anchored and started reading the newly released, claimed to be a novel by E.L. James, which she had picked up at the airport.

Barely five minutes had passed, when, out of nowhere, popped up a Game Warden in his boat. He pulled up alongside the lady and told her in a matter of fact manner, “Good morning, Ma’am. What are you doing?”
gap
“Reading a book,” she replied, while keeping to herself, the next part that almost slipped out, “Isn’t that obvious?”  
gap
The warden did not seem to be impressed. “You’re in a restricted fishing area”, he informed her in a gravely tone.
gap
“I’m sorry, officer, but I’m not fishing. I’m reading a book!”
gap
“Yes, I can see that. But, you have all the equipment. For all I know, you could start at any moment. I’ll have to take you in and write you up.” The warden, evidently, had an unrelenting attitude.
gap
“For reading a book?”, she exasperatedly asked! 
gap
“You’re in a restricted fishing area ….”, he droned on, like a robot. The lady, this time, enraged, cut him off sharply, “I’m sorry, officer, but I’m not fishing. For your kind information, I’m reading!” The warden, clearly in a league of his own, brushed aside the angry tone in her speech and repeated, “Yes, but you have all the equipment. For all I know, you could start at any moment. I’ll have to take you in and write you up.”
gap
By this time, she had already had enough, and decided to strike back. “If you do that, I’ll have to charge you with sexual assault”, says the woman, in a calm voice.
gap
“But, but..”, stumbled the warden, “I haven’t even touched you”! He was clearly perplexed.
gap
“That’s true, but you have all the necessary equipment. For all I know, you could start at any moment”, the lady replied in an even calmer voice.
gap
“Have a nice day Ma’am”, that was all, the warden could mutter, before he hurriedly left the place. :-)
