Innovative Gadgets: QWERTY Case for iPhone

One of the biggest disadvantages of the iPhone versus the Blackberry or other smartphones is the lack of a physical keyboard. Industrial designer Altamash Jiwani has drawn up a conceptual design for a QWERTY keyboard case that snaps right on to the iPhone. Yes before you go freaking out, it’s a design concept; but an intriguing one. The keyboard itself is designed to slide up and down to either cover the button on the bottom or not.

Innovative Gadgets: Solar Lantern

The expanding solar lantern is an interesting design that allows for a decent amount of light from a compact package. The idea is simple enough, it’s a paper lantern style lamp with a solar panel on one end. It folds up like an accordion for charging in the sun. Designed by Jesper Jonsson, the lantern collapses into a pocket size package, letting you bring a nice size lantern with you without taking up much space. A magnetic strap allows you to attach the lamp to things whether it’s in charge mode or light mode. Cool design.

Book Review: "THE LAST DON"

BOOK REVIEW “The Last Don”

Author: Mario Puzo
Genre: Fiction
Language: English
Pages: 482
Publisher: Mandarin
First Published: 1996

God of Crime fiction Mario Puzo’s seventh novel, sequel to “The Godfather” is “The Last Don”. Although it is all familiar, yet it is all new and interestingly exciting. As usual the book has crime, Sicilian vengeance, but he also added in detailed the world of gambling, the famous casinos of Las Vegas and movie business of Hollywood comes alive in this book.
This book is a story of Clericuzio Family, who operates from Long Isaland. Chief of the family is Domenico Clericuzio who rules the Mafia for over 30 years. But now he wants to make his family and their businesses legitimate. He wants to fade away in the normal society. So he plants his sons, nephews and grandsons into legitimate business like restaurants, construction companies, and legalized gambling. Of course he does this with his illicit mafia power. But the Sicilian vengeance comes back to haunt him and on the verge of ruining his plans and efforts to submerge in society. The remaining family member of Santadio Family which was wiped out by Clericuzio Family one bloody evening in the past now stands between Clericuzio family’s futures. 
As usual Mario Puzo developed some amazing characters and amazing interaction between them. You will hardly find any dull moments in the book. Although it gets little of the track in between and after reading his earlier novels you feel most of the passages of the book repetitive.
If I have to rate this book I will give it 7out of 10. I think if you haven’t read or watched ‘The Godfather’ earlier then this book can be lot more enjoyable. Worth reading it never the less.

Travel and Adventure: "Chanderi"

The Chanderi Apex is very prominent in the Karjat range and hints you on your jouney between Mumbai and Pune.

Although worth mentioning as the jewel in the crown of forts in the district of Raigad, there is no significant
history attached to this fort. Near the caves on the fort are visible some remnants of fortification. This is the only sign to designate Chanderi as a fort. In May 1656, Shivaji Maharaj conquered all territory up to Kalyan-Bhiwandi-Rairi. This was when this fort came under the rule of the Marathas. Lack of development, low water storage areas, absence of significant constructions, limited facilities for people to stay and extremely difficult approach road seem to suggest that rather than a fort, this was possibly a military base.

Movie Review: "Badmash Company"

Movie Review “Badmash Company” (2010)

Genre: Con, Romance
Director: Parmeet Sethi
Language: Hindi
Star Cast: Shahid Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Vir Das, Meiyang Chang and others
Banner: Yash Raj

“Badmaash Company” another Yash Raj film with great packaging but not so great content. To start with I like the title of the movie and the star cast was decent enough. Movie was directed by the first time director Parmeet Sethi who also written the film. For first time he did good job; but there was so much more can be done to the concept.

“Badmaash Company” is a two hours and twenty three minutes long movie trying to convey importance of honesty and ethics in life.

This movie is a story of Karan (played by Shahid Kapoor). He like any other youngster in India don’t want to spend his life working for same company and same job, he dreams of getting rich quick.

He starts out as a carrier for a small-time smuggler, where he met three likeminded friends (played by Anushka Sharma, Vir Das and Indian Idol fame Meiyang Chang). After completing this job Karan gets hang of it and eventually moves his way up to bigger con jobs and bigger bucks with his friends. But once their good days and fortune is over they fall on the path of destruction. Can they come out of it? Will they be friend after that? Will they learn from their mistakes? This is the story of Badmash Company

Movie has some very good moments amongst the friends. But there are very dull moments too. Although all the lead actors gave professional performance they could not cover up for the defects in the script. Climax of the movie was awfully bad, even school kids won’t buy that.

If I have to rate this movie I am going to give it 5 out 10 and I think that’s very generous of me.
