  3. @ burf : thanks.. finally u find something interesting on this page...

    @ anony : yea.. i know myself.. and am still trying to know more.. about controversial points... yes i noticed them as well.. but then what the heck.. i can be in two minds too :) this is point number 101 :)

  4. nobody forgets how to swim...how to ride a bicycle... ow to play carrom and I donot forget to check ur blog evryday... its an interesting post prashie

  5. http://help.blogger.com/bin/topic.py?topic=36

    check this link for more on RSS.

  6. Well i use to go to temple in Nagpur for 3 reasons-
    1. Religious
    2. To have lovely kachoris there
    3. To see the chics coming.

  7. ur post made me feel about 70% of it as i'm reading myself...good way to analyse urself.may be some i'd be able to jot down atlest half of it.

  8. @ Aseem : I don't know if i remember how to swim at all or not... it was scary when i jumped off that 22 ft high cliff man !!! i need to keep swimming to do it good !!! and thanks for checking the blog everyday...

    @ Ankur : I have the add atom.xml to the url of my page to read it on a RSS feed reader... i do that with SAGE.. a utility for Firefox...

    about the temple thingie... chics yes... lots of them come there.. and ofcourse guys go there to check'em out.. one of the reasons why i stopped visiting the local temple near my house....

    and point 102 i love kachories too :)

    @ Red : I guess out of the 100 things i have written... well 102 now :) a lot of us might find some common items !!! now that i have written 70% of wht you are.. go ahead and write the rest 32 for me :)

  9. 101 reasons why you shud know prashant........ that shud have been the title of your post. Anyway good post gave a lot of insight abt u.

  10. @ Aqui : :) these are not the reason to know me... this is what i am.. there are good things.. there are bad things.. there are things just like that... e.g no one wants to know my coz i used to like brown colour in my college :)


  11. why wud anybody not like to know u just because your preferred colour was brown???

  12. @ Aqui : U are taking it in the opposite direction now... you said that these were the reasons to know me... i disagree.. these are not why anyone would want to or like to know me... I am not trying to advertise myself with this post of mine !!!

  13. I am talking in the past tense....... why was that?

  14. you said in your college days ppl wudnt want to know abt u just because u preferred brown. And i am wondering how can a colour preference be a criteria.

  15. @ Aqui : I don't think you understood me. I said that no one wants to know me because i used to like a colour or whatever.. these 100 things ( i repeat) are not the reasons why anyone would want to know me or not know me.. please do not associate them this way.. this was never the intention of the post.. you got it completely wrong...

  16. "you got it completely wrong... " right

  17. a suggestion for prashant and aqui....maybe u guys could argue and comment and cross comment and whatever ont he phone,thats an easier and more practical medium than dedicating precious and day by day depleting blog space!!!
    I am sure burf would agree!!!!

  18. @ anonymous : people who comment on my blog have a right to go ahead and write whatever they feel like.. and i would reply to what they wrote... however you might have helped save some space by not commenting on this page !!! Thanks for visiting...

  19. was thinkin of writin the same kinda list for myself . inspired by another friend but me too lousy .. thinkin shud do that tonight :D

    and afa ur list.. well its u jus u .. so u know the best ! but i think i will neva give it a number.. let it jus flow.. even if it ends on 84??

  20. no need to give it any numbers.. coz i am sure.. the numbers would end the things about u and me and anyone would never...

    i did wrong by limiting them wth numbers... u do not do that !!!

  21. i really like the idea of putting such things down.read something similar on someone else's blog as well.
    maybe i'll also do it sometime soon.thanks for the idea!

  22. do that... it actually does not take long...
