UAE National Day

Very rarely would you see an non-emirati person writing about this but I cannot help myself. Call it my extended love for United Arab Emirates, a country full of things from 19th Century, 20th and 21st and I won’t be wrong if I said even from “future”. It has given me education, a career and memories for cherish in my lifetime. I also agree that not all the things that look like rose are rosy but then come on, which country doesn’t have flaws? None.

Therefore I will take this opportunity to congratulate The Rulers and wish every Emirati National along with every resident of UAE a very happy National Day. Over 40 years, UAE has come a long way but you can literally feel something in the preparation that every year would be better than the last one; – “SPIRIT OF UNION” #UAE41

As far as Social Media is concerned, over 3 million pictures showing the celebrations all around UAE, are expected to be on “instagram” shared via facebook, tumblr, pinterest and twitter. Over 6 million tweets and a 100,000 pictures on facebook. More stats and analysis to come later. Enjoy the 41st National Day if you live or are in UAE on 2nd December.


Election 2012 and Twitter

With over 22 Million Tweets and counting for the U.S. Presidential Elections, 2012 between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, on Nov. 6th, 2012, Barack Obama won the Elections when Mitt Romney accepted the defeat, hence for another term of 4 years from now, its Mr. President – Barack Obama, USA.

When it came to twitter, it was overflowing with several hashtags, most common being #Election2012″ Any other network didn’t had this kinda coverage of Elections, not sure of who wanted to see it or not. The world surely wanted Obama to stay but USA, wanted Romney, somehow. But that’s another chapter all together.

Whilst victory speech by Mr. President, Barack Obama, twitter went over capacity, twice and a tweet from white house from Barack Obama’s official account already made history by becoming the most retweeted tweet in the history of twitter, since 2006.

Here is a snapshot of the same, and I am sure it would have been retweeted even more than this.

Congratulations to the Democratic Party and First Lady, Mrs. Obama and family and lastly, Mr. President Barack Obama. God bless America and the world.

I felt…

By now, I’ve seen people depressed and in vain and wondered, where do they have to go? I also felt that every day is not “Sunday”, everyone have there days. Believe me when I say this, ‘music’ is supposed to be your way out, that too loud, either in your ears or whatever defines ‘loud’ for you. Go places in the world, do therapy’s, hangout on social media, visit friends, these are slow, very slow feeds for your brain to go into the normal phase again.

I know a few types of music which gives me goose bumps, I am sure there is a kind of music for all of us, so try it out. Here’s one of the compositions which work for me…
