Hey Krishna tu is kalyug mein aa kar to dikha…

Hey Krishna tu is kalyug mein aa kar to dikha…

Tune 18 saal ki umar me mama kans ko mara,
BIN LADEN ko hath laga kar to dikha…

Tune Arjun ko to Saari Geeta sunayee,
Mere Project Manager se ek baar baat kar ke to dikha..

Tune to Arjun ka Sarathi banke Pandavon ko jitaaya
Indian Cricket team ka Coach ban ke WorldCup jitaake to dikha…

Tune bhari mehfil mein draupadi ko saree pehnai,
Mallika sherawat ko ek jodi kapde pehna ke to dikha…

Tune gokul ki 1600 gopiyan patai,
Meri company ki sirf ek ladki ko pata kar to dikha…

Hey Krishna tu is kalyug mein aa kar to dikha…

Anil Ambani’s GSM move sets a cat among pigeons

Reliance Communications Ventures Ltd’ application to the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) seeking spectrum for GSM services across the country has triggered a theory that the Anil Ambani-owned CDMA major may move over to GSM technology over a period of time.

A source in the government said, “the Reliance application suggests that the group wants to move over to GSM”.It is learnt that the group has sought spectrum for GSM services across the country, wherever it’s available.

Also, Reliance Telecom, which already operates GSM services in eight circles with 2 million users, is planning a significant expansion with an investment of around Rs 1,500 crore.

This has come as a surprise as Reliance Communications already has almost 20 million CDMA users in the country.

TCS Eyes Mega Acquisitions

Over the last five years, heavyweights in the Indian IT industry have spoken of big ticket acquisitions. But besides a few small and medium deals, nothing of consequence has come through so far.

The wait may, however, be over. Sources close to Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) told TOI that it was looking to buy a UK-based company, Vertex, in the range of $800 million-$1 billion. If the deal comes through, it could be the largest ever by an Indian business house.

Vertex is the outsourcing division of United Utilities, a company listed on both the London and New York stock exchanges

    Know Something interesting about FIFA world cup

    Brazil won the world cup in 1994. Before that, he had won this title for the last time in 1970.
    If you add up: 1970 + 1994 = 3964

    Argentina won the world cup for the last time in 1986. Before that only in 1978.
    And 1978 + 1986 = 3964

    Germany, though, won the world cup in 1990. Before that, Germany won in 1974.
    Look: 1990 + 1974 = 3964

    This could lead us to guess the winner of the World Cup in 2002, since it should be the winner of the 1962 World Cup (In fact 3964 – 2002 = 1962). And Brazil won the world cup in 1962! (And, in fact, Brazil won the 2002 WC)

    This numerology seems to work…
    And now, who would be the winner of the 2006 world cup?
    Let’s see, 3964 – 2006 = 1958 And who won in 1958?….

    Oh, Brazil did!!!

    Indian programmer blamed for measles outbreak in Boston

    An Indian software programmer is at the centre of a Robin Cook novel-like scenario in Boston, where a measles outbreak has led to authorities distributing 23,000 doses of vaccine costing $400,000 (Rs1.8 crore) across the city.

    They have also ordered hundreds of people working in three buildings, including the city’s tallest skyscraper where the programmer went to work, to stay home until they can prove they are not susceptible to the disease.

    The programmer, whose name has not been made public, flew in from India on April 26, and began showing symptoms of measles —cough, fever and rash — on May 5. The disease soon spread to six more persons in the same building.

    Yahoo e-mail hit by worm

    Yahoo Inc., the world’s largest provider of e-mail services, said on Monday that a software virus aimed at Yahoo Mail users had infected “a very small fraction” of its base of more than 200 million accounts.

    The e-mail virus, or worm, has been dubbed Yamanner and landed in Yahoo mailboxes bearing the headline `New Graphic Site’. Once opened, the message infects the computer and spreads to other users listed in address books, security experts said.

    The e-mail containing the virus need only be opened — in contrast to most worms that are hidden in attachments and require users to take an additional step — to release the virus, according to computer security site Symantec Corp. The Sunnyvale, California-based company advised users to update virus and firewall software on their computers and to block any e-mail sent from the address av3@yahoo.com.

    “We have taken steps to resolve the issue and protect our users from further attacks of this worm,” Yahoo spokeswoman Kelley Podboy said in a statement. The worm cannot run on the newest version of Yahoo Mail Beta,” Symantec”s site said.

    The worm exploits a vulnerability in Javascript technology used to make the mail program easier to use by triggering embedded HTML scripts to run in the computer user’s browser. The e-mail addresses are also sent to a remote online computer server, which may be used to run spam campaigns, experts said. The technical name of the worm goes by variants of Yamanner.
