Doomed

He was staring blankly to his phone
which never rang. 😦

Ineffaceable

And the day he met her,
the ink of his pen was no longer filled with tears,
but with the happiness.. 🙂

Sigh

I feel so relaxed by typing few words on the paper,
I am able to scream without making a noise. 🙂

Merry & Happy

Merry Christmas 🎋 & Happy New Year ❤

Sometime all we need is a new perspective.
After publishing 125 posts, and seeking 1000’s of kind notes from fellow bloggers.. The blog finally decided for a change that has been slightly hard to take. The change which the blog author was willing to make for long and finally took it. The blog has a new URL(web address).
Welcome to.. thebrokenspecs (https://thebrokenspecs.wordpress.com)

Do you know, pair of broken glasses left on US gallery floor was once mistaken for art. 😀

Why its named, “The Broken Specs“?
I was remembering one occasion when I fell asleep in bed with my glasses on. When I woke up I was lying on them and they were all flat. I tried to bend the temples back and broke both of them. Luckily, I could see with an old pair of glasses that were still stronger than the prescription that I needed at the time. But I was very sad because I liked the broken glasses a lot and they couldn’t be repaired. 😐

It is important to hold Love & Trust with a lot of care, don’t let it down, because once broken they cannot be repaired. 😔

Hope you enjoy reading the blog.. 🙂

People with Camera

For all those who capture moments.

From the time I am here on WordPress, I have come across plenty of photographs from many different bloggers. All the photographs clicked by the camera person’s are superb. Many of the pictures speak a lot and by the help of tools the pictures are worth far more than a thousand words.

For me, a good photographer is one that communicates the fact, touches the heart and leaves the viewer changed person for having seen it. And Camera is a gadget that helps in capturing moments and not fading up the memories. I read somewhere that photography is an art, it is little to do with things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.

Few of my friends always ask someone to capture pictures of the present time they are enjoying and ya it’s great to keep pictures but as per me it is more important to enjoy those moments than to get busy capturing the moments.

I am not a camera made face as only ugly pictures are captured when lens is focused towards me. 😀
Here’s a little letter to the camera’s and DSLR’s.

Dear Camera,
I hate the way you make me ugly. Mirror is so nice to me. 😛

And then a photographer was born.. who was eager to take a selfie.

Selfie

It is always great when you come across a picture which was clicked last summer, and in a flash a slide show starts in your mind with all those things that happened just before and after that picture was taken. But it is important that you should live in the moment than to regret later that you missed something which could have been done or said that day.

It is just about time. Time will never hold itself for anyone, time flows and the reality will slip into memories.

Remember, The single most important component of a camera is few inches behind it.. 🙂

Falter of my favorite Brand – Nokia

The greatest achievement of humanity is not its works of art, science, or technology, but the recognition of its own dysfunction.

Nokia, not just a brand but a company which touched hearts of millions by selling the quality mobile handsets. The first mobile phone I saw was Nokia 3315, a rock solid usually called “Brick” was an amazing phone. It was the time when for all the people meaning of phone and Nokia were same.

Connecting people, is somewhat like the Microsoft vision of giving everyone a personal computer. And while there are people in certain parts of the 3rd world that doesn’t have mobile phones, I would say Nokia did an amazing job to get a mobile phone into everyone’s hands.

As per techillicious columnist Rajiv Makhni, The newly appointed CEO Stephen Elop was planted in Nokia by Microsoft as a Trojan Horse to destroy the company and buy it out. Nokia was a company that was already starting to falter when Elop came on board. What else could the company have done to survive? Their options seem limited from what we know about the marketplace. They could have release an android phone, but then they just would have been fighting for a piece of the pie that Samsung, Moto, and other phone makers are eating. They could have stayed with their phone OS and probably would have had just about the same fate as picking up Windows Mobile.

When Elop came in as Nokia CEO, Nokia was Number 1 in smartphones sales. In fact, it was Number 1 by a wide margin. Samsung lagged far behind. Nokia was selling about 10 million smartphones a month, more than twice as compared to others.

During Elop’s tenure, Nokia annual revenues fell 40% from 41 Billion Euros per year to 25 Billion Euros per year. Nokia profits fell 92% from 2.4 Billion Euros per year to 188 Million Euros per year. Nokia handset sales fell 40% from 456 million units per year to 274 million units per year. Nokia share price which was at 7.12 Euros on the day Elop was hired, had fallen to 81% to a bottom level of 1.44 Euros two years later, after which it began trading at 4.14 Euros, up 36% on the day. Elop’s success in negotiating the sale of Nokia’s struggling mobile device business to Microsoft has been described by many securities analysts as a significant victory for NOK shareholders, particularly when viewed in context of failed efforts by Blackberry or HP to secure value for handset business owned by those companies.

I saw few lines on Nokia which I read few years back. These line describe’s the love of people for their favorite brand.

Playing snake until the death,
While some create ringtones,
It was an unbreakable phone,
I’ll remember till my last breath.

This is a company loved by all, a brand that evokes a warm feeling of joy and comfort, a brand that is identified with starting the entire mobile phone revolution. More competition is always a good thing but for Nokia  it became tough to fight for its existence. The Nokia story will always remind us of how quickly even large companies can die in today’s world. They didn’t even see it coming.

There is always a last time for everything.
