Gone are those days in the local vegetable markets in Bhopal, when you would be more tensed about the correctness of the vendors’ weighing scales, than your shopping list. The other day, when I accompanied my parents to the vegetable market, I found that a majority of the vegetable-sellers were selling vegetables with the help of an electronic weighing machine, instead of the traditional pan balance. I asked one of them, “How could you make it possible?”. “We have taken it on rent. Can you see that tomato vendor right there in the centre? He is the one who is giving these machines to us. He charges Rs. 20 per day.”, replied he. He added further, “And do you know, these days he has bought himself a loading auto, and he loads all these machines and gets them transported to another marketplace the next day.”

"Development." I thought at last.

And do you know friends, these people have started refusing polythene bags as well? They are asking people to carry their own cloth bags instead.

Isn’t it all good? :)

Strawberry shake is a great way to rejoice among friends or family. It is a very easy-to-make and a very yummy desert that has this magical quality to just fit into whatever the special occasion is. So here's the recipe of the this treat. Enjoy. :)

  • Strawberries (around 5 pcs.)
  • Milk (250 gm.)
  • Sugar (7 tsp.)
1. Wash and chop the strawberries into pieces and add them into a mixer. I've used around 5-6 pieces of strawberries and removed the leaves over the fruit. You can add a few drops of essence if that's your preference but I personally like it natural.

2. Add sugar. Or don't. Strawberries have this tiny bit of a tangy flavor, if you're a person who doesn't like sweet things you can skip sugar all together. If you're diabetic or have any other diseases which hold you back in eating sugar, I strongly recommend against the urge; strawberry shakes don't taste that bad without sugar.

3. Blend the mixture for till the strawberries are mashed into very fine pieces and make sure it looks like it is in the picture.

4. Add milk and again blend the mixture.

5. Serve. :)

Yes, they have some. Some special needs. And we need to help them.

I was watching Dynamo, Magician Impossible. Well, I like the show, and the way Dynamo interacts with the local population. I liked one thing in the episode I was watching in the afternoon, which was, I would like to explain, with the help of the reader’s patience — Due to cyclone Sandy, there were some clippings of the news, and while the Senator was speaking, a lady was subsequently repeating his message through the sign language. It was so nice! Now everyone, including the deaf, could understand what he was saying. Isn’t it good? Couldn’t we have it in our own country? Couldn’t we make sure that people with special needs are taken care of and they should be treated with affection, and why not say love? Friends, this is the time to act. Let’s work on this. Let’s make them feel they are an essential part of this community. Think about this and share your views.

HP Printers sometimes notoriously show warnings like the ‘door is open’ and stops printing documents when it isn’t actually open. This, no doubt, could've been an ongoing source of frustration. This is how you can tackle that. And yes, without downloading a thing.

Am currently using Windows 7, but if you play around, you’ll discover for yourself on how to do that on other versions. The problem is chiefly due to the fact that your Print Spooler isn’t responding. Restarting the service should solve the problem.

The steps:
  1. Unplug the printer first (this is important).
  2. Open up the start menu and type in "services" without the quotes. Press Enter key.
  3. Wait for the services pane to open.
  4. Find Print Spooler in the list and (single) click on it.
  5. On the left, there will be a link to restart the service. Click on it. When the service has been successfully restarted, the printer should start working.
Update (Steps for Windows 8.1):
  1. Hit the Windows key to bring up the start screen. Start typing "services".
  1. Next, find print spooler and click on the link to the left to restart the service.

It has been quite long that I have been blogging. This blog is slowly emerging. It has crossed over one thousand (1000) page views. Thank you readers for your support. Due to lack of time I have started micro blogging. I would like to post some of the incidences that I recently came across. Here is a lesson.

During a visit to Aashima Mall, in Bhopal. On 1st November, occasion of Dhanteras. I saw some foreigners there. I wished them a happy journey to our country and of course, a happy upcoming Diwali. He asked my name. Yes, in that little conversation, he threw in a warmth of friendliness and asked my name while shaking hands with me. This, the lesson. We conversed further, but I had already got my lesson.

So friends, do not fail to ask the person's name. It can successfully make the conversation worth remembering.

It has been quite a while that I have been writing on this blog. Days have been tedious and my studies exhaustive. So I have opted for a less time consuming process, as the reader might be aware of, 'micro-blogging'. Follow me on Twitter for updates @sharma_ansh. Thanks and take care.
