How to remove sun control film?

Ignoring the Government rule to remove the sun control film in cars, I thought I won't be penalized because the visibility was 50$

 However, I was finally caught and coughed up Rs.100 as warning fine. The traffic cop told me, if caught again, I would have to pay Rs.500.

Today, I searched the Internet for doorstep removal of sun control film from my car. There were several listings and all of them uniformly charged Rs.500

As Google says, I was lucky and stumbled on to a do-it-yourself video that demonstrated how to remove the sun control film easily without any expenditure (almost nil).

I was surprised to note that the author of the DIY video was none other than Ajith Edassery, my online friend and founder of, a resourceful blog.

After watching the DIY video, I bought an old style blade for Rs.3 (Rupees three only) and removed the sun protector in just 20 minutes.

Thank you very much Ajith!

Here is the video. Please share it with your social contacts.

Adipex available without prescription.

I think it was about 7 months before that my husband bought Adipex from We were all taken aback by his decision to take Phentermine mainly to suppress his sudden increased appetite and not to reduce his weight which is actually considered less for his height.

He said he is taking precaution! Man, I never knew him to gain more than 500 grams weight in the last 26 years. I suspected his blood sugar was on the rise and that is why he felt like eating more than usual.

Nevertheless, he quickly started eating less and stopped taking the appetite suppressant. I guess the Adipex worked for him. Thank God he did not complain of any side effects.

Great escape-real life drama.

When I read this newspaper report of a Leopard that was rescued from a well, I regretted that I did not have the same sense to throw something at the cat that fell into the well in my house several years before.

We thought it would jump into the bucket that we let in through the rope. But it refused. Sensing that it got scared at the sight of us looking at it, shouting and cajoling it to act wisely.

Finally, we prayed and moved away. Two days after, its body floated. We were all grief stricken with guilt.

What is your favorite ebook reader?

Ah, I got the answer to my query. I wanted to know whether ebook readers offer an option to enhance the storage space by inserting a memory card and also are there more options apart from Kindle.

The Source always comes with up what I have in my mind at exactly the right time. It offers several wireless digital information readers that include Sony, HIP Street and Kobo apart from the highly popular Kindle. Yes, I can enhance the storage space with a memory card.

These Wi-Fi ebook readers are getting onto everyone’s wish list. Wireless ebook readers enable you to shop for your favorite ebooks and download instantly for a relaxed reading. Last week, when I was travelling long distance by a bus, I saw as many as 5 co-passengers busy fiddling with ebook readers.

I discreetly peeped in and to my amazement, I saw the girl sitting next to me reading blogs on her ebook reader! 

I am contemplating to buy one. Its price tag of around $100 is affordable by me.

My maths academy listed in Google local.

I am very happy to see my 12 years old mathematics coaching center listed in Google maps. Yesterday, I took nearly three hours to build my Google plus page and optimized it in Google local.

Several parents of my prospective students suggested that my maths tuition center should be made available in Google Maps. As more schools have come up in my neighborhood my local area of coverage expanded.

It had become mandatory that my office should be easily located and get directions from Google local search engine.

User manual library for gadgets and appliances.

Majority of us don't like to spend money to learn something new. After all, the Internet is full of useful information and is available always.

We buy so many gadgets, devices and appliances. They invariably come with a user manual. After a quick glance, we dump it somewhere in our house and conveniently forget about where we kept it.

When something goes wrong with an appliance we bought, we panic and frantically search for the user manual. While we may eventually trace it, we must agree it was a time consuming effort and waste of time too.

Is there a website online that has stored such user manuals of devices, gadgets and appliances?

Yes! Manuals Library is our savior. It has stored over 5,32,000 user manuals in its database! What a marathon effort! You only need to key in the search term. Search results include manual name, description, size and number of pages.

You can either read manual online or download it to your computer. In addition, you are free to share them on social networks.

Viswaroopam trailer.

Just saw the trailer of Kamals Viswaroopam in YouTube. It seems a magnum opus whatever that means. The visuals are stunning. Can't wait anymore to see it in a big cinema theater.

New tv stands and mounts for LED and LCD televisions.

Whenever a major sports event is about to take place, you can see several trade shows announcing big discounts in latest flat television models. Television dealers gear up for brisk sales and every dealer would try to garner maximum sales.

Euro 2012 football fever is about to catch all of us. Though I expected a huge crowd at a television and home theater exhibition yesterday, I did not expect to be jostled by unruly crowd. Every stall was filled tv stands with mounts.

Pedestal stands on which huge screen LED TV sets offered more people to stand around. A few years ago, the wall would be proudly hosting the LCD TVs but our style and preference have changed. We too wanted our walls to have stunning paints under which we place the pedestal television stands.

Such a setting looks sophisticated in living rooms-eh?

I noticed something else too at the tradeshow. There were more options as far as the design and style of TV mounts.  For example, look at this adjustable TV pedestal with wheels. It can fit 32 to 50 inches flat television and you can place the television on a height that is convenient to you.

Don’t curtail your visualization of the types of TV mounts by looking at the image below. Please take a moment to click on the tv stands with mounts link above. You would be surprised at the range of TV mounts.

Cheers Spain.

English: UEFA Euro 2012 poster in Warsaw.

I am very glad that Euro 2012 is starting today. Being the start of weekend, I luxuriously sink to the couch and watch the inauguration and the first match fully.

When the IPL 5 got over last month, I felt a vacuum. Suddenly, there was too much time to kill. Somehow, the days went by and the football noise seems to have descended already with street children playing football at every available space on the road.

I am a die hard Spain supporter. I wish they win their first game without any tension (to me).

Guitarists’ favorite amplifier.

Thanking a fellow band member, my son followed his direction to B-52 Amplifiers for sale but stopped in his tracks abruptly when he looked at the price. He made a few mental calculations before he stepped ahead, again mentally.

A few minutes before he made up his mind to buy the guitar amplifier, he just called me to inform about his intended purchase. I knew it was only information and not seeking permission.
I only asked him not to disturb anyone just because he bought an amplifier. To change his mood (he lapse into sullen mood whenever he parts with money), I told him to pass on the bill to me. It would be my birthday gift to him.

Do all guitarists buy their own amplifier? I thought troupe owners would have bought such accessories before hiring musicians.

I hope I am not sounding like novice.
