One of the most happiest day of my life was in Feb, when we were blessed with a second child. My son is thrilled to have a girl chilD to play with. He calls her Barbie doll and princess among other names.

I came across an interesting story on what IIT toppers went on to do later in their lives. Here’s the comment I added over there.
Wow, quite an insightful article. It does dispel some myths created by an entertaining book ‘Five point someone‘ of Chetan Bhagat. I can relate to Vineet’s statement about problems harder than JEE and also Arvind Saraf”s statement about over-expectation from JEE toppers!
Starting 2012, IIT-JEE answer key is put on the portal, which is a good move towards transparency. I really like the fact that IIT-JEE will have subjective questions to improve quality of intake. Kapil Sibal has been forced to backtrack on unified entrance examination for IIT atleast till 2015. While other centrally funded institutes will use 40% board marks and 60% JEE performance for entrance to NIT, IIIT etc., II’s will continue to use JEE only.
The following 3 features, I love are:
- Availability of menus for all restaurants, I go to – As I mentioned above, other competing sites don’t have menus always available.
- Ability to share my favorite restaurant lists, e.g. Been There by Prasoon Jha.
- I as a user of the site should be able to add a restaurant, not just the restaurant owner.
3 features, which I dislike or new enhancements, I’d like to see are:
- When I search restaurants in a particular locality, say Malad(W), I’d want to see them on a map.
- Another feature,I’d want is private lists, which I can share only with my friends.
- I’d also like an ability to follow food editors or a favorite foodie in my neighborhood.
