cover story High Flying King To Water Less Fish ? >the flamboyant tycoon who's

Kingfisher Airlines is threatened with collapse-VIJAY MALYA >You can't fly the good times if you are not loaded. >it's foolish to dig a well after the house has caught fire. >Struggling Kingfisher Airlines slipped in market share to the third position in October


n the recent time he has

seen success in the liquor world, Dr. Vijay Mallya the chairman of United Breweries Group and Kingfisher Airlines must be having sleepless nights now-a-days. The party may be over for India's "King of Good Times", Vijay Mallya, the flamboyant tycoon who's Kingfisher Airlines is threatened with collapse.

Mr Mallya's billionaire lifestyle has been a symbol of India's soaring fortunes since he launched his airline in 2005, and a factor in his reputation as "India's Richard Branson�. He owns a fleet of luxury vintage cars, bought his own Formula One racing team, Force India, sails a $100 million yacht in the Arabian Sea, and hand picks "models" as hostesses for his Kingfisher Airlines. Struggling Kingfisher Airlines slipped in market share to the third position in October, from second in September, ceding ground to budget airline IndiGo, government data showed. Kingfisher is unlikely to recover lost ground in coming months because the loss-making carrier cancelled scores of flights in November, catching both customers and government authorities by surprise and spooking investors. Kingfisher recorded a market share of 16.7 percent for October, a ebusy season for the airline industry, trailing IndiGo at 19.6 percent. Kingfisher was almost neck-andneck with state-run Air India, which had a share of 16.6 percent, while Jet Airways remained the dominant carrier with a market share of 24.8 percent, which included its subsidiary JetLite. Close on Kingfisher's heels was budget airline SpiceJet with a share of 16.1 percent.

The recent fall of Kingfisher Airlines The airline said it made a loss of 4.69bn rupees ($93m; ÂŁ58m) during the period, compared with 2.31bn rupees last year. The loss comes amid cashflow problems for the carrier that has seen it cancel hundreds of flights. The airline said higher fuel costs hurt its earnings during the period. India's secondbiggest airline has not posted a net profit since it started operations in May 2005 and is about $1.2bn in debt. The carrier's problems have gone from bad to worse in recent months as it has found it difficult to raise fresh capital, resulting in reports of unpaid fuel bills and other dues. Creditors have already asked the company to raise $159m in equity so that its debts can be restructured. The State Bank of India, the airline's biggest lender, has warned that it must come up with a credible business plan before any restructuring of its debts. Dozens of pilots have reportedly left the airline over the past few months, although Kingfisher has maintained it reflects a normal turnover of staff. In September the airline shut its budget carrier, Kingfisher Red, saying it no longer intended to compete in the low-cost market. The Kingfisher's attractive plumage (backed by its good-looking handlers in the air). Of course, things didn't come cheap, but you can't fly the good times if you are not loaded. At least that was the motto of the new Blahraja of Maalyapoor. He too had spread his wings in the meanwhile. He wanted to consolidate the assets left to him by his pioneering father. His efforts included ordering newer and very expensive species of the Kingfisher from France on credit, gobbling up a low-flying but popular bird that went by the name of Air Deccan, and extending the monopoly of the spirits business. But wild dreams often lead to nightmares. And high-fliers are brought down to earth with a thud. It's hard to say whether it was the Raja of Maalyapoor's inflated opinion of his bird-breeding abilities or the wrong advice given by his courtiers that led to the steep decline of the Kingfisher. However, by now, public opinion was soaring against

Hawks in India Inc. spoke sharply against favoring the Kingfisher. Let the Maharaja use own funds to keep it flying, was the general sentiment among lenders, corporate and the public alike. “In a commercial jungle, those who die must die,� said one businessman. "As the Sanskrit proverb goes, it's foolish to dig a well after the house has caught fire," said a management guru.

A WALK DOWN MY MUSICAL PAST e“How about participating in the Battle of the Bands coming up this fortnight?�asked Deepak, our Assistant Vice President in HSBC to our band as we were jamming together one evening. A chill went through my spine. This was because our college band, Cross Roads had worked hard for a fortnight to play just two songs the previous night and Bob's was around the corner. This was when I was pursuing my B.Com in the Andhra University, Visakhapatnam, apart from doing my apprentice in HSBC, Global Resourcing which outsources work from abroad. I really get nostalgic when I think about those moments as I just came out of my second home i.e. school, after 14 glorious years. I can say that this was the phase where I was getting to see the real world and was trying to gel with colleagues and friends and of course, musicians. A frog out of the well! This was the beginning of a journey which I'm really passionate because music is something which takes me into another realm. Since time imm-emorial, music has been a part and parcel of society. Be it the harp or lyre or the flute or the modern keyboard or guitar, people have embraced and supported music and musicians mainly as a means of entertainment, apart from many other purposes. I think it may be safe to say that music shows the ingenuity of mankind, where we are able to compose music that people listen to for generations. One cannot imagine a world without music. After a hard day of work, people would love to listen to some lovely melodies, making them forget their troubles for some time, and giving them a hope that they can fight a better tomorrow.

I love crucibles There are moments in one's life when even words fail to express deep-felt feelings of the heart. I know that this is one such moment in life, to express gratitude to all the members of the club. It is like captivating reflection of the full moon in all its glory in a small bowl of water. Every time I was associated with it I got to learn something new. Which awakened me this process, however be incomplete, had it not been for the many lovely people around me. I thank them immensely for their encouragement and support to awaken me from my slumber.Personalities keep coming and going while we are perhaps a constant factor in this ever-changing world. Think about it why would anyone even want us to not exist? Yes, our forms may change but our essence will not. Personally, I am passionate, not just about me but also about making a difference in the world. I love people and want them to love me as much as I do. But at some point, I discovered that there was more to me than what everyone knew about. Though I have been in their life for a while, they hardly know me. Even if they think they know me, they know more about the false knowledge, concepts and beliefs floating about me. If they take another look at me they will realize the potential and change crucibles has bought in me.

To conclude,To get the best results first we have to shed pre-conceived notions. Surely, we can't wear a new dress without removing the one we are wearing, can we!!We will get many ideas pertaining to our life as we keep on trying and surely find it more and more relevant to our life. We will find a different perspective, view point, horizons and newer insights emerging. At times we may think differently and might not accept some of the ideas put forth that according to me, is fair. We simply have to learn how to apply those thoughts to our own life to get the best results out of it. “If we live life with a smile on our face and song in our heart, we will be able to live happily and welcome success and abundant knowledge into our life. ”Therefore I urge everyone to start with something fresh and I would like to say it with pride “I love crucibles. “

I also believe that music, similar to fashion, exemplifies the lifestyle or the charac-teristics of the particular generation. Soft, melan-cholic music was the order of the day during the Great Depression as well as a few centuries back. This is because musicians, apart from the common man composed music to express their grief about the oppression they were facing, and indicating that the pressure cooker of their grievances would soon explode into a revolt that none would have ever dreamt of. However, the modern style of music is about freedom, power and the brave new world that the way of life is today. Coming back to where I started off, I was exposed to different kinds of music at a very late age. This was because our conservative culture didn't allow us to listen to any other music other than what was played in the church and man gets bored when there is no change. However, a concert by a band called Sounds of the Nations way back in 2003 on the beach of Vizag set the stone rolling. They played rock n' roll and I, for some apparent reason began to like it. In 2006, my friend gave me a live version of a Guns n' Roses concert held in Feb, 1992 in Tokyo, Japan and I started developing a real passion for rock music. This might sound weird but I began to notice things beneath the surface. I began to observe that it takes a lot of nerve and practise to be able to pull off such amazing concerts where almost ten musicians have to co-ordinate between each other to produce quality music. This is unlike Bollywood music which has a different style. A closer look reveals the amount of practise (sometimes for months to produce an album) and the teamwork that makes them world renown. The rest is history as I began watching lot of concerts and I formed a band called the Crossroads (which actually didn't get to cross many roads because we disbanded) and performed on the occasion of the completion of our first graduation year. More concerts followed where I got the opportunity to play famous Bollywood numbers on the rhythm guitar like Socha Hein, Aadat, Maahi, Ey Khuda, Nenu Nuvantuu etc.

The IIPM experience can in no way be put behind the former shows. We started planning about the band, the songs, the members and the taste of the crowd which is one of the most important factors. We started helping each other and got to know each other more as learning the whole song and playing it out in front of the audience is not the whole story. It is the relationship and the jellying together that can work wonders. Once the drum kit had been procured, we went into serious practise and had an amazing set-Creed's My Sacrifice and Linkin Park's One Step Closer (sung by Arjun, Delhi Belly's DK Bose and Rockstar's Sadda Haq(sung by Rahul), Papa Roach's Last Resort(left it at the last moment), Kelly Clarkson's Behind These Hazel Eyes(sung by Harshita), not forgetting Marwan's Piche Saat Din. It was a Herculean task for Tanuj, Rohan, Inzamam and me to learn the songs with very little time to spare but we managed it considerably well. All in all, rock music is being slowly understood and accepted by India.

Corruption in India is a cultural aspect. Indians seem to think nothing peculiar about corruption. It is everywhere? Indians tolerate corrupt individuals rather than correct them. No race can be congenitally corrupt. But can a race be corrupted by its culture? To know why Indians are corrupt, look at their patterns and practices. First: Religion is transactional in India. Indians give God cash and anticipates an out-of-turn reward. Such a plea acknowledges that favours are needed for the undeserving. In the world outside the temple walls, such a transaction is named- “bribe”. A wealthy Indian gives not cash to temples, but gold crowns and such baubles. His gifts cannot feed the poor. His pay-off is for God. He thinks it will be wasted if it goes to a needy man. In June 2009, The Hindu published a report of Karnataka minister G. Janardhan Reddy gifting a crown of gold and diamonds worth Rs 45 Crore to Tirupati. India's temples collect so much that they don't know what to do with it. Billions are gathering dust in temple vaults. When Europeans came to India they built schools. When Indians go to Europe & USA, they build temples. Indians believe that if God accepts money for his favours', then nothing is wrong in doing the same thing. This is why Indians are so easily corruptible. Indian culture accommodates such transactions morally. There is no real stigma. An utterly corrupt Jaya Lalita can make a comeback, just unthinkable in the West. Second - Indian moral ambiguity towards corruption is visible in its history. Indian history tells of the capture of cities and kingdoms after guards were paid off to open the gates, and commanders paid off to surrender. This is unique to India. Indians' corrupt nature has meant limited warfare on the subcontinent. It is striking how little Indians have actually fought compared to ancient Greece and modern Europe. The Turks' battles with Nadir Shah were vicious and fought to the finish. In India fighting wasn't needed, bribing was enough to see off armies. Any invader willing to spend cash could brush aside India's kings, no matter how many tens of thousands soldiers were in their infantry. Little resistance was given by the Indians at the “Battle” of Palassy. Clive paid off Mir Jaffar and all of Bengal folded to an army of 3,000. There was always a financial exchange to taking Indian forts. Golconda was captured in 1687 after the secret back door was left open. Mughals vanquished Marathas and Rajputs with nothing but bribes. The Raja of Srinagar gave up Dara Shikoh's son Sulaiman to Aurangzeb after receiving a bribe. There are many cases where Indians participated on a large scale in treason due to bribery.

Question is: Why Indians have a transactional culture while other 'civilized' nations don't? Third - Indians do not believe in the theory that they all can rise if each of them behaves morally, because that is not the message of their faith. Their caste system separates them. They don't believe that all men are equal. This resulted in their division and migration to other religions. Many Hindus started their own faith like Sikh, Jain, Buddha and many converted to Christianity and Islam. The result is that Indians don't trust one another. There are no Indians in India; there are Hindus, Christians, Muslims and what not. Indians forget that 400 years ago they all belonged to one faith. This division evolved an unhealthy culture. The inequality has resulted in a corrupt society, In India everyone is thus against everyone else, except God and even he must be bribed. PRIYANKA KAUL PGP/SS/11-13/IIPM-A

MAKE A DIFFERENCE Youth is restless, ready to take risks and believes that they can change the world and its ways. Some think that they are rash; others think they are irresponsible, but the youth think they are otherwise. They don't just think but believe so too. Out of this belief was born an idea that was going to change lives of a number of little kids across the country, a group of youngsters in Cochin came up with a very passionate and visionary idea to provide a helping hand to the lesser privileged kids of the society, so that they also get to realize their dreams. They urged the youth of this society to come, 'Make A Difference'. And that's how the organization was born. The idea of this group of youngsters spread like wild fire and the youth across the country accepted it with open arms because they wanted a change, they just wanted to 'Make A Difference'. Make A Difference (MAD) is a youth volunteer network that works with underprivileged children in India. MAD tries to empower children in orphanages, street shelters and poor homes with English. Right now, close to a 1200 Make A Difference volunteers teach close to 3500 kids.

In five years, they have moved out of Cochin and expanded to Bengaluru, Bhopal, Chandigarh, Chennai, Coimbatore, Delhi, Gwalior, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Lucknow, Mangalore, Mumbai, Nagpur, Pune, Thiruvananthapuram, Vellore, Vijayawada and Vishakapatnam. Mad does not stop here. It's looking to expand to more cities with a vision to reach out to 3 'Make A Difference' works with the motto of 'Bridging inequality in society through education'. MAD wants to bring about a situation where all children can select a career based on their aspirations and potential rather than on their financial situation or their background.0,000 kids in the country in the next few y






To realize this dream, MAD has conducted a number of experiments to provide the best to the kids. Finally, this was made possible by its education partner: Cambridge University Press. The English project takes learners from starter to intermediate level using Cambridge English for Schools. The English course is a five level program of 100 hours each.

Every year, the children go through 56 interactive classes of two hour duration. By the end of the 5th level, the child's communicative skills will be at par with a private school student. Only 13% of high schools in India use English as a medium of instruction, yet a child's higher education and future job prospects depend heavily on having it. Access to the Cambridge curriculum will put children on a par with those educated in good schools.

Andrew Little John, the author of the book prepared customized baseline assessments tests that could help with the leveling of the kids for their English classes. He also agreed to be on the English advisory board to help with the English s y l l a b u s a n d t r a i n i n g f o r t h e k i d s . The Placements wing of Make A Difference focuses on both career specific and general exposure. The basic aim is to place the children in the same footing as children from regular homes with regards to experiences and interaction with various walks of life.

A wide range of instructive and informative sessions including visits to hotels, factories, professional colleges as well as enriching experiences such as camps, arts and crafts workshops etc. are conducted. A recent placement activity was conducted for the over 60 kids at Rainbow boys, Lalapet. The event, called “Be the Superhero”, introduced kids to the values like justice, dedication to cause, hard work etc followed by their favorite superheroes and then introduced them to some of the real life super heroes like doctors, engineers, defense officers, scientists, artists etc... It was a great pleasure to hear the kids walk up at the end of the event and say, “I want to be an astronomer, how do I become one?” And another kid quips, “I want to be a doctor...” Placements projects help kids dream higher and help them in achieving them. The Library project introduces the kids to the world of reading and motivates them to read books. The Library project was piloted in Rainbow home for girls, Musheerabad, Hyderabad in partnership with Bookwallah and Hippocampus. This project being a huge success is now being expanded to other cities as well. MAD believes in providing the best to its kids in terms of quality. For this reason, a stringent recruitment process is put in place to select the best teachers for our kids. They are then trained on how to take classes, teach kids and how to deal with them. MAD, based on business model, and makes sure that all the activities are efficiently completed on time. In Hyderabad, there are 150 volunteers working closely with 300 kids from 12 homes in the city. Mad Hyderabad works on three major Projects English project, Placements project and Library project.

MAD does not just make a difference in the kids lives' but teaches them that they can help bring about that change too. This was made possible by the Design for Change contest in partnership with Make a Difference. Kids picked up the social issues that bothered them the most and enthusiastically went about changing them their way. Kids in Mangalore went about raising funds to buy mosquito nets and filled in puddles in their neighborhood to prevent Malaria, kids in Hyderabad were out on the streets convincing the slum dwellers to educate their girl child. In Nagpur, kids took to streets to tackle the old-age menace... 36 teams in all from 8 cities implemented their amazing ideas. It was an amazing experience for the kids and the volunteers to be a part of this Change they were implementing in their society. DFC contest has ended but not the spirit of the kids. They still continue i m p l e m e n t t h e i r b r i l l i a n t i d e a s . MAD is the winner of the Ashoka Staples Youth Social Entrepreneur Competition 2008, and was nominated as the best Medium Category NGO in the Indiya Shines initiative organized by in 2009. MAD is also a Noble Laureate of the Karamveer Puraskar awarded by I-Congo, global fellow of Youth Action Net and Cordes Fellow 2010. This year, MAD went on to win the World Summit Youth Award 2011 in the 'Education for All' category. MAD is one of the 18 winners from over 700 entries from 99 countries in the World Summit Youth Award (WSYA). The winners will be honored on Nov 10th and 11th in Graz, Austria and MAD is represented by Public Relations Head, Jithin Krishnan. Having been with MAD for a few years now, this is what some of our volunteers have to say about it - “I thought volunteering was about giving. I have developed a lot more than I have given. Thank you MAD... by a hopelessly MAD struck person,” Samarth Agarwal. Jithin Krishnan says, “I've been part of MAD for so long that it doesn't feel like a cause, or a job or a responsibility anymore. MAD is a way of life Period. All of us have to handle responsibilities in our lives. From a personal point of view, MAD gave people like me a chance to grow up sooner than we'd have otherwise. It's a young dreamy eyed child's future. That IS a lot of responsibility. Best part of MAD is that it redefines the youth stereotype every single day! The youth are brash and care-free? Says Who? Says Purva Narain, “ MAD has been my first defining moment... changed my life forever.... taught me not just to think but to have the courage and take that next step and go out and do what you think... and the fact that it's never too early or never too late to do what you really want to do in life... once you really want something, your passion will take you places... and each passing day here strengthens the faith that there is still hope in this world because there are still so many people who care F i n d M A D a t : h t t p : / / m a k e a d i f f . i n / ,,,,!/makeadiff.”

Rudiments of the Subject Make You "Master" Else Life Will Be "Disaster"

Praveen remember one thing. Growth of the person is stopped once he stopped learning. I don't judge the growth of the person by amount of salary he earns�, Sam said. I came out of the meeting room NOTE: I am mentioning about the but the sentence said by our lead attendance % not the aggregate we resonate my mind. The sentence possess in the engineering. struck my heart; it made me post"May I come in sir?� asked again as mortem my entire engineering life the professor acted he didn't listen. while I was travelling in the highly He stopped at roll no 19, seen at us; packed Falaknama MMTS Local gave a dirty look and waved his hand train as a signal to come in. We sat at the last bench and opened our gadgets to generate key events. He closed the door and climbed the podium with a great difficulty taking the help of his thigh by putting his hand on it. He is hardly 5 feet 5 inches, with a round pumpkin face and belly, moustache hiding his lips. Best feature he has is chubby cheeks. Opened his bunch of papers (without which he can't deliver his lecture.) from the register and has written "flip flop" on the blackboard and drew a curve below it as he is lazy to stand and draw a straight line under it.

My body managed to get a place at the door of the train on the other side of the platform but my mind was at the entrance of the 2-2 ECE-'A' class room. "May I come in sir?� asked in a commanding voice. Ranadheer, Narshima (best buddies of mine) were at the back of me dragging me as they want to bunk this boring, freaking class. But now I have 71%, I strongly determined myself to get 75% by the end of this semester till that time I decided not to bunk any class.

He continued to dictate from the papers he had got. Akhil sadepalli is the one guy who continuously nods his head (up-down-right-leftdiagonally; all possible directions) and jot down the shit what he dictates and wipe out his sweat with his handkerchief. He is explaining flip-flop circuit. Some of us don't know what transistor does in the flip-flop circuit. After comp leting the dictating part he use says Hope you got it right? (As he know student can't understand what he is saying.)

At that point my inner voice wants to curse him! I don't understand what you said. Explain again without seeing the papers you brought. If you can't explain what else you can do in the class without having those papers apart from taking attendance? Common say ‌" .but I can't say as he is HOD and got powers to exercise (but not knowledge to deliver to students). Hardly 10 out of 60 uses to listen his class and rest are busy with their work under the bench. Is this Productive? "arey rannu transistor ela pani chestadi ra ekkada ? enduku pettadu ra ?(ranadheer how the transistor works here?)He tries to explain but I can't catch what he is saying. It would be just like seeing telugu dubbed tamil film. (But mugged up during the exams transistor offs light wont glow) This is what I did in b-tech. Not only me there are hundreds, thousands, have lakhs of students liked me. What could be the reason for this? Atleast in this case why am unable to understand the functioning of flip-flop circuit? Answer is simple. I don't know the functioning transistor. Basic element of electronics is TRANSISTOR which I mugged up in the first year. I don't know the basic element functionality how can I understand flipflop action? Why I didn't understand transistor action. Again this HOD comes in to picture (he taught us EDC with his bunch of papers)

.Train arrived secunderabad station but the platform was on the side where I stood, then the mob of people started saying "UTHAR KAE CHADEO BHAYA...UTHAR KAE CHADEO". As they ordered I got down from the train and stood aside. One advantage while travelling in the mmts is no need to put effort to get down or to get in. Everything is taken care by the mob around you. As train started to gain velocity I got in to train, this time I didn't get the place to place both my legs. I was just hanging out from the train. Inquisitor in me got satisfied by the report of post-mortem. I never cared to learn the things which I missed out. That's the reason why my growth in b-tech stopped at 66%. But the only good thing that I did was to master the basics of C language which fetched me job at A.P.Tech computer education as C instructor (I didn't taught them as my HOD did. This is for sure), later on at innominds software pvt ltd as a Software Engineer.

As I am good at C I got a job. What about Narshima? He is lazier than me. He didn't even learn C. Will he get a job with 63%? At core side he can't get the job as he doesn't know how transistor works. He doesn't have interest to get in to unstable software industry. Even though he has interest to get in to software Is this the way to teach to students industry he doesn't know what printf who are habituated to spoon feeding in does. inter? At least I feel that a professor has to be in such a way that he has to Will he get the job now? Obviously inject the interest, curiosity towards no, But he got the job! As he the subject by teaching the basics mastered the basics of Quant and clearly after that he himself can verbal he got job in Central research down the lane. Without the gover nment depar tment mor e basement how can a building with stabilized job than mine (He even gets the pension and 10-5 job but I stand? don't have this luxury)

So guys Whatever the stream you are learn the Rudiments of the subject, master it grow yourself and help others to grow by sharing useful knowledge and keep learning throughout your life. By doing this increases the command over the subject .Remember having % won't fetch you job. Subject will fetch you a job. Now a day's 8 pointers are struggling hard to get the job. So dear friends it's up to you to think. Malakpet arrived, I reached my destination. Still the crowd has not decreased. Time for me to say "UTHAR KAE CHADEO BHAYA...UTHAR KAE CHADEO"....train gained momentum still I didn't get down...Finally I have to jump from t h e t r a i n . OMG first I need to learn the basics how to get down from the train.

Alcohol – Curse to the World Living in the current generation, seeing people changing themselves with new habits fe e l i n g t o b e l i ve d i n t h e prestigious culture, makes me perplex. Should really people change their living habits? Well whatever may be, it's their own independence. In today's modern society alcohol addiction and alcohol abuse has become one of the most complex, life-threatening issues. Most depressed individuals usually indulge themselves in bars or pubs with their alcohols to escape from their stressful life. It has become increasingly alarming how alcohol does not only attract the adults, but also teenagers these days. I have seen many youngsters getting attracted towards the drinks (wines, beers, etc.).They feel that it quenches them. And I hate people boozing. Optimistically am not trying to hurt anyone. So I thought to discuss on "The BACCHANALIAN"boozers.

Is there any hope for a teenager who wants to get his or her life str aightened out? It's ver y interesting that I find myself writing about something that not only is commonsense, but what is more, Something that everyone knows about in general but may not in par ticular. Alcohol use among teenagers is a serious problem and is responsible. Entering in to the college world with much innocence, some aims on their faces, but finally changes at the end of the college life. Having faith in them not getting attracted towards it doesn't rule on alcohol, it accepts its defeat. Having a group of friend's (friends peers make up gangs influence the upcoming generation) just saying to themselves ("chill dude it's a part of life U R grown up" just a taste of the alcohol doesn't change us) leading to the occasionally alcohol consumption (thinking only 1ce a while yaar) making their taste buds lust towar ds alcohol, finall y concluding to addiction of alcohol. So, he changes his life from a human being to Carousal. With the alcohol addiction affecting every segment of society, regardless of race, gender, or age is affected. It destroys the health, and recovery becomes more complex.

According to me the first thing in the human per sonality that dissolves in alcohol is DIGNITY. I found many people giving different reasons for their consumption of alcohol. Some say it empowers A drunken person looses his/her them in all the means. Some say it alleviates the pain. If u knows state of mind and performs many someone who tries to drown their actions unaware of the result just Sorrow, U might tell them Sorrows like leading himself towards a deep well.

Alcohol is a mind altering drug. It affects the nervous systems by slowing the body's functions, also results in heart failure. So finally in my view people who consumes alcohol or guzzle is equivalent 2 the person committing SINS. An advice to all of them stop alcoholism, live yours and make others live happily. Request to all nonboozers raise your voice against it because only youth can turn the world. “PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE”. Consuming alcohol is to kill you. Do remind yourself with this.

When Microsoft launched the Kinect everyone knew that Kinect will be used from more than just gaming. Within no time hackers were all over Kinect hacking the hardware to use it for all sorts of purpose some included presentations others included Adult things I can't mention in this magazine but very soon Microsoft launched a Software development pack for the Kinect basically handing over the keys to developers and asking them to go crazy this was HUGE.

Not only will that move revolutionize and create a whole new medium to communicate with your computer it will be fun! * Flash back to Iron man * .A few weeks ago Microsoft announced that Kinect will be integrated into its next Operating system named Windows 8 expected move but what not many people saw coming was the announcement that Kinect will be integrated Into Television sets. I am fat very fat and hate it when my sister keeps the remote so painfully far away on the table in front of me. But using Kinect motion sensing tech now I could change channels with a swipe of my hand .Make Kinect turn of the TV when I don't return in front of the TV for an hour imagine all the possibilities and craziness the Kinect on every medium will unleash! If the world does not end next year Kinect will be taken to a whole new level, a level that we all
