The new Facebook template for your blog !

I just made this new design for my blog and i m feeling pretty happy about it. I know a lot of geeks are ready to grab it for their own too. But, sorry guys it is not exactly available for download. You will have to follow this step to step guide i made for u to get the end result.

1. First, get a decent image processing software like photoshop or atleast

2. Take a snapshot of an open FB page so that u can pick the exact same colours for ur header.

3.The font used in the facebook logo is called 'Klavika'. I found it on

4. Once u have created an image file for the header, here comes the tricky part. When u try to replace the blog title with the image, it does not goes till the boundaries and is usually distorted. So i replaced the blog title with a 'transparent' gif image made in

5. Go to blogger's new template designer and go to background tab. Here, upload the image u created earlier in background. Don't forget to uncheck the 'tile' option and check the 'move image with page' option.

6. Remember, u should create a file that's long enough horizontally so that it covers the full screen on larger monitors. Mine is 1366 pixels long, though 1600 would have been better.

7. To remove the blogger navbar, got to the 'edit html' tab on the 'design' page and add this code (in green) in the header just below the template details (in blue)..

Blogger Template Style

 #navbar-iframe { display: none !important;}

/* Variable definitions

8. To change the default blogger icon on the title bar, u need to make a new icon of ur choice. U can convert it into the '.ico' format using

9. Read this post from blogger in draft on changing ur favicon and follow their simple instruction.

Happy Blogging !

The new face of political barbarism : Ramdev ?

I am not a very saintly person. But i occasionally get a little shouty-douty when the clerk at the railway station does backdoor reservations at the expense of those standing in the queue. I really swear though, the thing that never crossed my mind yet is to 'hang the clerk by neck till death' ..or maybe 'make him do kapalbhati till he kills himself'. Well, it crossed the mind of the honorable and graceful saint shown on left. It must be right i think, as lakhs of people are said to be supporting him in his 'satyagraha'.

I don't mind whatever the hell he might have spent on the AC pandals or shit. There are lots of genius people around who want to buy more and more of ramdev special chyavanprash and other premium horseshit. Atleast he had earned it by making a fool of genuine fools. I can't give any more crap about it.

The thing that hits me is the way he asks for death sentence for freakin everything. Now what the hell happened to it being 'rarest of rare' cases that are allowed execution ? Ours is a death sentence obsessed nation. The law is considered a mere tool of taking revenge. Maybe it is the effect of the old Dharmendra movies with dialogues like.. "Bhagwaan kasam, jab tak tera khoon apne baap ki kabr pe nahi chadhaunga tab tak chain ki saans nahi loonga..!!!!!"  ( Kutteeeee !!!!!!!). Isn't he supposed to be a 'religious' guy.. or what they call a 'yogi' ? For somebody who claims to have achieved inner peace and whatever other shit, isn't this supposed to be freakin shameful for him ?

How you can bloody fight against corruption by teaching medicine and engineering in hindi, is a logic that hangs my processor everytime i give it a second try. And yeah, banning the 500 and 1000 rupee notes would be a real fine thing. Then i wont have to withdraw money from ATMs in 400-400 batches to get 100 rupee notes. It's really shameful when you show the 500 note to the canteen guy after drinking coffee for 5 rs. Still, i sometimes wonder.. how would the baba have payed for his five star satyagraha in 100 rs. banknotes. Huhh, maybe he used his platinum card. Like i care..

Well, Cruddy just got up after refreshing his mind with his evening dose of 'anulom-vilom' and now he is bugging me that he will hang me in the frontyard if i don't let him play GTA on the computer. I guess this is all for today. Gud night !
