Computer Games like Prince of Persia and Doom are great memories when mostly every new compu game geek played during those sunny days.
I really use to cheat the kids with the 'cheat codes' and reach the eleventh & twelfth zone in minutes;-)

What? You don't know about Prince of Persia? Well, I have an online Prince of Persia game for you to play - Enjoy!

Created by Jordan Mechner and presented by UBISOFT Entertainment, Prince of Persia 3 is about to release and step into the Gaming arena. Warrior Within & Sands of Time were great Prince of Persia Games but the Speed Kill System is a whole new gameplay system being introduced in POP3. It allows you to perform very dramatic moves that take your enemy down in a single shot. Speed Kills require excellent timing and reflexes but are hugely rewarding. They really make the most of the Prince and Dark Prince’s athletic abilities in fast-paced action-packed sequence.

The Prince of Persia revolves round the story that the Prince of Persia makes his way home to Babylon, bearing with him Kaileena, the enigmatic Empress of Time, and unspeakable scars from the Island of Time. But instead of the peace he longs for, he finds his kingdom ravaged by war and Kaileena the target of a brutal plot. When she is kidnapped, the Prince tracks her to the Palace - only to see her murdered by a powerful enemy. Her death unleashes the Sands of Time, which strike the Prince and threaten to destroy everything he holds dear. Cast to the streets, hunted as a fugitive, the Prince soon discovers that the Sands have tainted him, too. They have given rise to a deadly Dark Prince, whose spirit gradually possesses him...

Don't miss out playing the game but if you do, there's more for you from me to you! I've tried out the Gujarati Blog and hopefully will be presenting Bhupatdada's articles & world of Gujarati Literature, gujarati poetry blogs and more! I ain't a gujju writer and honestly admit that I lag behind the real language as the convent culture took me over! Anyways, here the SHABD PREET Blog for you. Enjoy!

Storms In the Sea Wind by Alam Srinivas:
Review by ilaxi

A blow-by-blow account of the Ambani saga by Alam Srinivas, Business Editor, Outlook, who has tracked the Reliance group for twenty years. Residing in Delhi, he has focused on investigative pieces exposing corporate corruption and the nexus between big business and politics. Since 1986, he has written dozens of articles on the Reliance group and the various controversies that gripped the Ambani family.

"Rule 1. Identify your stock. Rule 2. It’s all about the timing. Timing of what to pick and when to sell."

Storms in the Sea Wind - an interesting story of intrigue, deceit and drama.

A read for Corporate world, Management students and all those involved with the Share Bazaar!!! Corporate world & the Tricks of the trade! A thrilling involvement of most of contemporary India's Business and Political players.

The book has a rather interesting reveal where Pramod Mahajan is described as one “who was accused of being close to Mukesh and who vehemently denied it”, Shankar Adwal as “Mukesh’s chief lobbyist in Delhi, he constantly lamented...that the two Ambanis were fighting so openly” and Prem Chand Gupta as “the minister for company affairs who never revealed his true cards... and kept changing his stance regularly”.

Did ever Dhirubhai Ambani know about the tensions between his two sons, Mukesh and Anil?

Did the patriarch merge RIL and Reliance Petroleum to prevent a future split in the Reliance group?

What were the reasons for the frenetic growth of the Ambanis in just about three decades and the subsequent division in less than three years after Dhirubhai’s death?

What were Dhirubhai’s traits that kept the Ambani family together?

What were the differences in Mukesh’s and Anil’s personalities that led to their falling apart?

Did mother Kokilaben play a role in bringing about a truce between her two sons?

How was the seven-month-old war between Mukesh and Anil fought?

Roli Books presentation, (Rs.250/-) and around 240 pages read - When I got to read the reviews, its been an interesting information pick. Stop, Think and Step into the Share Bazaar arena with the Ambani picks!!!

(More Political, Management & Spiritual Book Reviews by me can be Read Here!)
