The one you feed

One evening an old man told his grandson about a
battle that goes on inside people. He said, ‘My son, the battle is between 2
‘wolves’ inside us all.

One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret,
greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false
pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility,
kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.’

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather:
‘Which wolf wins?’

The old man simply replied, ‘The one you feed.’

Harry Potter And Half blood Prince Review

Saw Harry Potter And Half blood Prince yesterday and i must say i was 2008-11-14-harry_potter disappointed.May be the people who have not read the books will like it but for a book crazy fan like me it was a disappointment.Every one knew that movie wasn’t going to be as good as book but this one was a very poor effort.

From the cave scene till the ending the book keeps you in  tight grip but in the movie those scene which are essence of half blood prince happen in like 10-15 min which is a shame.

The ending of Order of Phoenix in movie was much better but this one was disappointing.If you remove the books then movie was good watch still not epic movie.Certainly not the best movie in series.

Haye ye Batii (load Shedding) :(

well it went 30 mins early today and its relay not bearable now.Its extremely hot and to add to our torture is this painstaking 12 hrs load shedding everyday.I normally come home from office around 8 only to find that in next 5 hrs before sleep 2-3 hrs will be without light and no internet(off course).Its really annoying.

And the most disappointing thing is that government doesn’t seem to care.So for now we can just pray for rain right now and hope that the summer season passes quickly.:(

On Twitter Now

Well i have finally joined twitter. Aleem is like crazy about twitter so also decided to give it a go.Now if u think Facebook was gr8 for sharing ur thoughts and day to day activities then twitter goes a step further by giving u an opportunity to virtually broadcast urself onto the world(Forcefully).

And like every Other  thing it has its pros and cons.Like i was immediately informed when Aleem reached his Dubai and then his home.

Problem i am facing is that i dun have a decent set to use twitter.If anyone has any good suggestion for a good set in range of 15k Rs(150-200$) please do suggest.

You can find me on twitter by searching abdul_azeem.

Graphene : New wonder material, one-atom thick is Stronger than Diamond

Imagine a carbon sheet that’s only one atom thick but is stronger than diamond and conducts electricity 100 times faster than the silicon in computer chips.

That’s graphene, the latest wonder material coming out of science laboratories around the world. It’s creating tremendous buzz among physicists, chemists and electronic engineers.

"It is the thinnest known material in the universe, and the strongest ever measured," Andre Geim , a physicist at the University of Manchester, England , wrote in the June 19 issue of the journal Science.

"A few grams could cover a football field," said Rod Ruoff , a graphene researcher at the University of Texas, Austin , in an e-mail. A gram is about 1/30th of an ounce.

Like diamond, graphene is pure carbon. It forms a six-sided mesh of atoms that, through an electron microscope, looks like a honeycomb or piece of chicken wire. Despite its strength, it’s as flexible as plastic wrap and can be bent, folded or rolled up like a scroll.

Graphite, the lead in a pencil, is made of stacks of graphene layers. Although each individual layer is tough, the bonds between them are weak, so they slip off easily and leave a dark mark when you write.

Potential graphene applications include touch screens, solar cells, energy storage devices, cell phones and, eventually, high-speed computer chips.

Transformers : Revenge of The Fallen & Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince.

I just saw Transformer:Revenge of the Fallen and must say it was a wonderful movie.Almost as good as first one if not better.Also this is biggest blockbuster movie for past 1 year easily.the fight scenes in this move are epic and story is also Strong.

I am now waiting for Harry Potter and Half Blood Prince which is due latter this month.I just hope that it lives up to its expectation and does justice to the novel because the story in novel is really strong and from trailer it does look like an epic movie as well.

Finally joined Twitter

So i finally created an account on twitter..Still don’t know how it completely works..Aleem has been talking a lot about it so i said why not give it a try 🙂
