Nostalgia with Yuvi

ಎದುರಲ್ಲಿ ಮಹಾನ್ ದಿಗ್ಗಜರು ಇದ್ದರೂ ಮನಸ್ಸಲ್ಲಿ ಒಂದು ಮರುಕ ಇತ್ತು. ಇತ್ತ ಕ್ರೀಸ್ ಗೇಲ್ ಪಕ್ಕದಲ್ಲಿ ಮುತ್ತಯ್ಯ ಮುರಳಿಧರನ್ ಇದ್ದರು ಎನೋ ಕಳೆದುಕೋಂಡ ಭಾವನೆ ಇತ್ತು. ಅಪರೂಪಕ್ಕೋಂದು ಸೀಗೋ ಇಂಥ ಅವಕಾಶದಲ್ಲಿ ನಮ್ಮ್ ವಿರಟ್ ಕೊಹ್ಲಿನೋ, ಯುವಿ’ನೋ ಅಥವಾ ಎಬಿಡಿ’ನೋ ಇಲ್ಲವಲ್ಲಾ ಅನ್ನೋ ಹತಾಶೆ!
ಅನ್ ಲೈನ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಕಷ್ಟ/ಇಷ್ಟಪಟ್ಟು ಗೆದ್ದಿದ್ದಕ್ಕೆ ಸರಿ ಸಿಕ್ಕೀದ್ದೆ ಸಾಕು ಈ ದಿಗ್ಗಜರನ್ನೇ “ಮಿಟ್ ಅಂಡ್ ಗ್ರಿಟ್” ಮಾಡೊ ಸಮಯ ಇನ್ನೇನು ಹತ್ತಿರದಲ್ಲೇ ಇತ್ತು. ಆಟೋಗ್ರಫ್ ಪುಸ್ತಕ ಒಂದು ಕೈಯಲ್ಲಿ ಮತ್ತೇ ಜೇಬಲ್ಲಿ ಪೇನ್ನ್ ಇರೋದನ್ನ ಕನ್ ಫರ್ಮ್ ಮಾಡ್ಕೋಂಡು ನನ್ನ ಕ್ಷಣಗಳಿಗೆ ರೆಡಿಯಾಗಿದ್ದೆ.

ಇನ್ನೆನು ನಾನು ಮುಂದಕ್ಕೆ ಹೆಜ್ಜೆ ಇಟ್ಟೆ, ಆ ಕಡೆಯಿಂದ ಸೈಲೆಂಟಾಗಿ ಬಾಗಿಲು ಓಪನ್ ಅಯ್ತು.. ನೋಡುದ್ರೇ ಅದು ಯುವರಾಜ್ ಸಿಂಗ್… ಮುಖದಲ್ಲಿ ನಗೆ ಮನಸ್ಸಲ್ಲಿ ಎಲ್ಲಿಲ್ಲದ ಸಂತೋಷ! ಯುವಿ ಬಂದ ಯುವಿ ಬಂದ ಅನ್ನೋ ಖುಷಿ! ಈ ಖುಷಿ ಮದ್ಯ ಒಂದು ಚಡಪಡಿಕೆ ಯುವಿ ನನ್ನ ಫೋಟೊ ಫ಼್ರೆಮ್ ಗೆ ಬರ್ತನೋ ಇಲ್ವೋ ಅಂತ! ಹೀಗೆ ಮನಸಲ್ಲೇ ಅಂದುಕೋಳ್ಳುತ್ತ.. ಮುಂದೆ ಹೋದೆ ಗೇಲ್, ಮುರಳಿ ಮತ್ತು ವರುಣ್ ಮಿಟ್ ಮತ್ತೇ ಗ್ರಿಟ್ ಮಾಡಿದಾಗ ಎದುರಿಂದ ಫೊಟೊಗ್ರಾಪರ್ ಫೋಟೊ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ಕಿಸಲು ರೇಡಿಯಾಗಿದ್ದ ಮತ್ತು ನನಗೆ ಸರಿಯಾಗಿ ನಿಲ್ಲಲು ಸಲಹೆ ಮಾಡಿದ, ಇನ್ನೇನು ನಿಲ್ಲುವ ಕ್ಷಣಕ್ಕೆ ಸರಿಯಾಗಿ ‘ಯುವಿ” ನನ್ನ ಫ್ರೇಮಿಗೆ ಕಾಣಿಸಿಕೊಂಡ. ಕೇಳಬೇಕಾ ಇನ್ನಾ?? ಫುಲ್ಲ್ ಖುಷಿ…
ಹಾಂಗೆ ಒಂದ್ ಸ್ಟೆಪ್ ಹಿಂದೆ ಹೋಗಿ “ ಹಾಯ್ ಯುವಿ ಸಾರ್” ಅಂದೆ!

ಅದಕ್ಕೆ ಯುವಿ : ಹಾಯ್ ಅಂದ

ನಾನು : ಒನ್ ಸೆಲ್ಫಿ ಸಾರ್ ಅಂದೆ!

ಯುವಿ : ನೋ ನೋ.. ನೋ ಸೆಲ್ಫಿ’ಸ್ ಅಂದ…

ಅವ್ನ್ ಸೆಲ್ಫಿ ಕೊಡ್ಲಿಲ್ವಲ್ಲ ಅನ್ನೋ ಬೇಜರ್ ಗಿಂತ ಅವನ್ ಜೋತೆ ಮಾತಡಿದ್ದು ಬಹಳ ಖುಷಿ ಅನ್ಸುತ್ತು…

Finding the right shade of Technology

In the era of internet technology the access to banking services through digital channels continue to grow with the time. This is one of the buzz word in the current scenario especially in India that too after the major revolution in banking i.e. Demonetization. So these have alleged to be effective, trustworthy and informative. The implementation has evolved from the traditional method of banking by not bounding to any operational timing, the services can be offered at a miniscule cost, fund transfers can be made to any area without any outstation charges and may more.

With these, the security issue is at most concern for the customers/users, as they advised not to provide any account related information over the phone or unsecured emails. Based on the finding the @TheOfficialSBI has initiated a many efforts to create awareness on the safe usage of IT products and against the prevalence of digital banking frauds.

Customers must beware of fraudsters pretending to represent banks over phone, emails or any other social media platforms. ATM is one where customer frequently visits to withdraw money, check balance and others while doing this make sure to cover the PIN pad while you enter your PIN. And must avoid dodgy looking and stand alone ATM in low lit areas and Stick to ATMs that are physically installed in a bank premises.

The customers must be aware of the new kind of hacking i.e. Skimming and cloning, the thieves may install the skimming devices in the ATM machines, the skimming will capture the complete details of the inserted ATM card including the CVV number and that will be replicated with the method of cloning. So make sure to have an eye on the “CARD inserting area” must be glowing with twinkling lights and avoid withdrawing cash on the weekends, the thieves tend to install skimming devices on a weekend as when they know the bank won’t be open again for more than 24/48 hours.

While doing online payments customers will receive an email requesting to open a copy of payment notification. It will prompt you to login via the email attachment. When you open the attachment in the email, it will be redirected to a fake banking website. In an attempt to steal banking details will be requested to login. As soon as you enter your login details on the screen, it will redirect to a successfully logged out screen. The fraudsters will now be in a position to access your banking profile. So customers must avoid redirecting to unauthorized payment notification.

Without the support of the customers the bank alone cannot eradicate the scams under SAFE usage of I.T. Everyone must aware of the dark side of the technology must try to overcome it and must enjoy the Benefits of its usage and ease of operation by joining the #SbiComputerSecurityDay which will enrich the knowledge level of customer and would enhance towards safe usage of the IT products.

Smith Blew away the MI’ghty target

Captain Smith’s prime run with the bat continues again in India as he led RSP for a mammoth 7 wickets thrilling victory over the Mumbai Indians on the 2nd match of the 10th edition of IPL. and this bought some sparks for the PUNE fans.

Captain Steven Smith finished off the match with a mighty SIXES and the match was went down the wire for a first cliff hanger of the season. he Smashed 84 runs of 54 balls and remained till the end to taste the victory.

On the other side Mumbai Indians were posted a good total with the bat by the contributions of Joss Buttler in the top order, the young lad Nitish Rana studied the innings and its Hardik Pandya who guided to MI’ghty total of 184 with scoring 28 runs in the final over of the innings.

The main attraction in the bowling of RPS is the unsold player in the auction Imran Tahir who held back scoring rate of #MI by taking Joss Buttler and captain Rohith Sharma in just three balls.  but the brilliant last over from Hardik Pandya has sailed the score of #MI over to a 180+ in their quota of 20 overs.

RSP’s chasing hasn’t started well as they lost the early wicket of Agarwal, but the stand in Indian TEST Skipper Ajinkya Rahane has nailed the opposition with his sensible and aggressive innings and captain Steven Smith continued to score well and run between the wickets with MSDhoni has reduced the chasing pressure on his head. Though the match went on to the last over where RSP need 13 of last six balls but they scored only three runs of the first three balls and they need 10 runs of last three deliveries and its captain Steven Smith on strike and he never waited till the last ball as he managed to clear the fence in the next deliveries by hitting TWO consecutive sixes and sealed the  match and registered the first WIN for his side 🙂

This innings sets up the heat in the 10th edition of the IPL, So i’m waiting some more Cliff hangers will going to entertain the World cricket fans in the coming SAGA of Entertainment. 🙂

And not to forget the banter between Kevin Peterson and MS Dhoni and here you can have the conversation 😛

On Air:

KP to Manoj Tiwary: Tell MS that I am better golfer than Dhoni..

Dhoni: You are still my first Test wicket. 😀 😀


And the Sun Rise’d!

Vintage Yuvi and the Perfect Cutting’s  show has scripted the Rising start for the  Sunrisers Hyderabad in the inauguration match of the 10th edition of the IPL.  The sun risers Hyderabad has outclassed in every department against the Kohli-less RCB in the opening encounter.

On beautiful batting wicket RCB welcomes SRH to bat and went on to hammering a huge amount of 207 runs for the loss of 4 wickets. Though RCB picked the last season’s highest run scorer for SRH David Warner but it’s the other man  who joins the party with his Vintage show by scoring blistering knock (62 off 27 balls). This innings is a boon for the Defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad.

The target seems much more achievable for the team like RCB in a very Promising batting track but they failed to continue the initial start they got. Each batsmen failed to continue the good start they did. Chris Gayle (32), Mandeep Singh (24), Travis Head (30) and Kedar Jadhav (31), Especially the PERFECT direct hit from the deep from Ben cutting to get rid off Kedar Jadav has been the turn around for the match for the Sun risers.

with all perks and blahs this is seriously a good start for the both the teams has the #RCB played without their main guns Virat and ABD. and i am expecting a huge turnaround will be around the corner from RCB in their next encounter and it’s at their Home Den. So Cheer up RCB fans, our team will be Bounce harder to kiss the victory. 🙂
