"I don't like it," Offiong said in McKeldin Library's computer lab, immediately after changing over. "I liked X the way it was, like, three years ago."

Although the statement from X says the X is now "simpler and cleaner" and users can opt back to their old X design, some people aren't too pleased.

What are we talking about?

Every Little Helps

Yesterday's Answer

Carrom Board.
Meerut was already famous for crickeet bats and if ppl played cricket they d be tired.. hence ppl there started playing carrom and the carrom board industry thus received a boom.

Wednesday, March 4, 2009


During the ramjan period, the timing of the offices changes in the Gulf countries. People work from 9 in the evening till 4:30 in the morning and keep their shops closed during the daytime. Since playing cards is considered haram (profane), people prefer to do something else that is considered a great leisure activity for the entire family . This increased the business of a Meerut based industry by almost 50 per cent in the month of Ramzan, the fasting period that culminates in Id-Ul-Fitr, the biggest festival for Muslims.
