The Millionaire Next Door – Book Review

I do not know why but I am into Financial Blogs these Days. And one of the books I came across on multiple blogs is ‘The Millionaire Next Door’. This book was available on EBay for 2$ with free shipping so I got a copy for myself*. Anybody who is $ conscious should read this book. It is about 2 researchers who study common habits of millionaires. Here the term Millionaire is someone who has 1 million in savings\investment\worth. Why should you read it? Because it answers the following questions Where is my money going? Can we live happily and save with 1 person’s salary in the USA. Kids are so expensive these days. It is impossible to save with kid(s) in USA? Some of the most interesting things I learnt from the book People who drive Flashy and expensive Cars are not ...

Fate of the Furious – the No-Spoiler movie review

My rating: 8/10 This movie has more ups than downs. The scenes are amazing and I have a feeling that small screen will not do them justice. If 10$ is too steep for you, wait for a Saturday morning show at a local AMC or use the free movie ticket options that mobile carriers hand out on Tuesdays. Do what you have to do, go check this one out at a theater. Good The sequence the movie begins with is quite cool where Dom is challenged to race with a pitiful excuse of a car. Rock and Jason Statham. The chemistry they have is amazing. Their witty interaction makes you smile every single time. I loved the Car\Van\Jeep\Tank\Submarine Chase on the snow. It was something new that I had not seen before and this sequence alone is worth watching the movie for. It is the right dose o...
EPL: My Two Cents

United v Chelsea Apr16,2017

[United fan writing from a United Perspective] Outplayed and outsmarted the champions-elect through every blade of grass at OT. Liverpool away, Tottenham home, Arsenal home and now Chelsea home. One player proved that he is more of a big match player than anybody else. Ander Herrera is quietly becoming Mr 'Indispensable' for United. 0 shots on target speaks volumes about the 3 man defense. Bailly at 23 rightly justified Vidic's claim that he is the heir to his throne. Rashford might have been one of the best players on the pitch but there is definitely a lot of work that needs to be done on his finishing. Spurs can thank United for bringing back life into the title race :)

Life – the movie review

My Rating 8/10. This movie has more ups than downs. So, I am going to give it a 7 on 10. The +1 is for Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal. It is a thought provoking movie so be prepared to come out with a lot of questions about Life. The Good Amazing Acting by everyone. There isn’t one person in the cast who hasn’t done justice to their roles. Simply brilliant. Amazing concept. The storyline deserves a round of applause. I loved the way they started with what proof of life outside earth could mean and the possible cures for most of the health problems faced by the world today. Literally, some of the best out-of-the-world Cinematography (I can say ‘Literally’ without cringing). Loved the picturization and the rebirth of the alien form. Those were well enacted scenes. The ...

Do whatever you want. Others can take a hike!

To start with, I define Kid as anyone between the ages 10 and 15. As a Kid, I watched a lot of informative television channels and had a lot of ideas about what I wanted to do with my life. My mom always made sure there were enough Essay books at home (pre-internet era) so that I was never hungry for knowledge. I had a few very specific ideas about what was right and what was wrong and many a times voicing my opinions to the grown-ups resulted in lengthy debates that would always end up with a ‘You are a kid, wait till you grow up’. Now, around 15 years later, I think ‘Damn, I was a smart kid!’. I will not visit the Temple Regularly: I come from a religious family. As a kid, I remember Dad going to the temple before work every day. But somehow, as traditional as my parents were, they ne...
