Video: Apple airs new iPad 2 commercial – “Love”

Apple has released a new iPad 2 commercial titled Love which has now gone on air. In the ad, Apple demonstrates how the device is used by people in their day-to-day activities, such as editing videos through iMovie, mixing and editing music, designing, etc. In short, the holidays are coming and Apple wants to prove to you why buying the iPad 2 will be a wise call, fending off competition from cheaper alternatives like Amazon’s Nook and Fire, and the various Android tablets out there. Love.

Breaking: Zaheer Khan to get married soon!!

Sorry girls, yet another eligible bachelor, Zaheer Khan, may soon go off the ‘available’ list straight into Isha Sharvani’s arms, according to a report in the Times Of India today.

The report says that “soon after India emerged victorious at the World Cup 2011, and Zaheer Khan finished as the joint highest wicket taker of the tournament (he and Afridi both got 21 scalps), his proud parents were reportedly insistent on getting the best bowler (read, flavour) of the season married. And their wish was Zaheer’s command! We hear Zaheer is planning to walk the aisle with his long time girlfriend and Bollywood actress Isha Sharvani very soon.”

Their love story is almost like a movie script. Isha was performing during an event in 2005. Zaheer was there. They got introduced and kept bumping into each other at various social dos. And before long they were seeing each other. However, after two years of dating they decided to call it quits. Both went their seperate ways. And were not in touch till they met again in 2010.

Isha and Zaheer decided to give love a second chance. “True love deserves a second chance and Zaheer Khan and Isha Sharvani are doing just that,” said Hindustan Times. And now, it seems their decision was the right one.

The pretty damsel, who began her Bollywood career with Subhash Ghai’s ‘Kisna’ opposite Vivek Oberoi did not outright deny this news when contacted by a tabloid. Nonetheless, she preferred to keep it simple by saying, ‘I really don’t want to comment on this.’

Love is in the air folks and the good news is just around the corner… 😉

Love the way you lie [Part 2] (video + lyrics)

So it is true then that there is a part 2 of the super hit song Love the way you lie. This song is a part of Rihanna’s album ‘Loud‘ which was released this year and features American rapper Eminem. Part 1 was from the album ‘Recovery‘.

Rihanna ft. Eminem – Love the Way You Lie (Part 2) Lyrics

[Rihanna]
On the first page of our story
The future seemed so bright
Then this thing turned out so evil
I don’t know why I’m still surprised
Even angels have their wicked schemes
And you take that to new extremes
But you’ll always be my hero
Even though you’ve lost your mind

[Chorus]
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
But that’s all right because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
But that’s all right because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
Ohhh, I love the way you lie

[Rihanna]
Now there’s gravel in our voices
Glass is shattered from the fight
In this tug of war, you’ll always win
Even when I’m right
‘Cause you feed me fables from your hand
With violent words and empty threats
And it’s sick that all these battles
Are what keeps me satisfied

[Chorus]

[Rihanna]
So maybe I’m a masochist
I try to run but I don’t wanna ever leave
Til the walls are goin’ up
In smoke with all our memories

[Eminem]
This morning, you wake, a sunray hits your face
Smeared makeup as we lay in the wake of destruction
Hush baby, speak softly, tell me I’ll be sorry
That you pushed me into the coffee table last night
So I can push you off me
Try and touch me so I can scream at you not to touch me
Run out the room and I’ll follow you like a lost puppy
Baby, without you, I’m nothing, I’m so lost, hug me
Then tell me how ugly I am, but that you’ll always love me
Then after that, shove me, in the aftermath of the
Destructive path that we’re on, two psychopaths but we
Know that no matter how many knives we put in each other’s backs
That we’ll have each other’s backs, ’cause we’re that lucky
Together, we move mountains, let’s not make mountains out of molehills,
You hit me twice, yeah, but who’s countin’?
I may have hit you three times, I’m startin’ to lose count
But together, we’ll live forever, we found the youth fountain
Our love is crazy, we’re nuts, but I refused counsellin’
This house is too huge, if you move out I’ll burn all two thousand
Square feet of it to the ground, ain’t shit you can do about it
With you I’m in my f-ckin’ mind, without you, I’m out it

[Chorus]
Love the way you lie

Valentine’s Day Special:Self-Less Love _ A great read

My wife called, ‘How long will you be poring over that newspaper? Will you come here and make your darling daughter eat her food? ‘I tossed the paper away and rushed to the scene. My only daughter Sindu looked frightened. Tears were welling up in her eyes. In front of her was a bowl filled to its brim with Curd Rice. Sindu is a nice child, quite intelligent for her age. She has just turned eight.

She particularly detested Curd Rice. My mother and my wife are orthodox, and believe firmly in the ‘cooling effects’ of Curd Rice! I cleared my throat, and picked up the bowl. ‘Sindu, darling, why don’t you take a few mouthful of this Curd Rice? Just for Dad’s sake, dear. And, if you don’t, your Mom will shout at me’ I could sense my wife’s scowl behind my back. Sindu softened a bit, and wiped her tears with the back of her hands.

‘OK, Dad. I will eat – not just a few mouthfuls, but the whole lot of this. But, you should…’ Sindu hesitated. ‘Dad, if I eat this entire curd Rice, will you give me whatever I ask for?’

‘Oh sure, darling’.

‘Promise?’

‘Promise !!’.

I covered the pink soft hand extended by my daughter with mine, and clinched the deal. ‘Ask Mom also to give a similar promise’, my daughter insisted. My wife slapped her hand on Sindu’s, muttering ‘Promise’, without any emotion. Now I became a bit anxious. ‘Sindu dear, you shouldn’t insist on getting a computer or any such expensive items. Dad does not have that kind of money right now. OK? ‘No, Dad. I do not want anything expensive’. Slowly and painfully, she finished eating the whole quantity. I was silently angry with my wife and my mother for forcing my child eat something that she detested. After the ordeal was through, Sindu came to me with her eyes wide with expectation. All our attention was on her. ‘Dad, I want to have my head shaved off, this Sunday!’ was her demand.

‘Atrocious!’ shouted my wife, ‘A girl child having her head shaved off?

‘Impossible! Never in our family!’ my mother rasped.

‘She has been watching too much of television. Our culture is getting totally spoiled with these TV programs!’ Sindu darling, why don’t you ask for something else? We will be sad seeing you with a clean-shaven head.’

‘No, Dad. I do not want anything else’, Sindu said with finality. ‘Please, Sindu, why don’t you try to understand our feelings?’ I tried to plead with her. ‘Dad, you saw how difficult it was for me to eat that Curd Rice’. Sindu was in tears. ‘And you promised to grant me whatever I ask for. Now, you are going back on your words. Was it not you who told me the story of King Harishchandra, and its moral that we should honor our promises no matter what?’

It was time for me to call the shots. ‘Our promise must be kept.’ ‘Are you out your mind?’ chorused my mother and wife. ‘No. If we go back on our promises, she will never learn to honor her own. Sindu, your wish will be fulfilled.’

With her head clean-shaven, Sindu had a round-face, and her eyes looked big and beautiful.

On Monday morning, I dropped her at her school. It was a sight to watch my hairless Sindu walking towards her classroom. She turned around and waved. I waved back with a smile. Just then, a boy alighted from a car, and shouted, ‘Sinduja, please wait for me!’ What struck me was the hairless head of that boy. ‘May be, that is the in-stuff’, I thought.

‘Sir, your daughter Sinduja is great indeed!’ Without introducing herself, a lady got out of the car, and continued,’ That boy who is walking along with your daughter is my son Harish. He is suffering from…. … leukemia.’ She paused to muffle her sobs.

‘Harish could not attend the school for the whole of the last month. He lost all his hair due to the side effects of the chemotherapy.

He refused to come back to school fearing the unintentional but cruel teasing of the schoolmates. ‘Sinduja visited him last week, and promised him that she will take care of the teasing issue. But, I never imagined she would sacrifice her lovely hair for the sake of my son!

Sir, you and your wife are blessed to have such a noble soul as your daughter.’ I stood transfixed. And then, I wept. ‘My little Angel, you are teaching me how self-less real love is!’

*The happiest people on this planet are not those who live on their own terms but are those who change their terms for the ones whom they love…..*
