Should I buy a domain name?

Currently, this blog is getting about 30 - 60 visits a day. Seeing this improvement in number of visitors, I am planning to buy a domain name for this blog. After buying a domain name, my blog will have a definite identity on the internet. Moreover, domain names aren't costly these days. It will cost about Rs. 500 per year for a .com domain (I can save my pocket money, although I don't get it).

Currently, I'm thinking of good domain names like gauravbhorkar.com, goodgaurav.com. Unfortunately the best domain name for this blog (gaurav.com) is already parked by someone else.

So guys, please answer the poll on the right hand side (ie the sidebar) ----->

And as always, you can suggest me any good domain name in the comments section below.

Poem: Oh my Grandpa.

This poem is dedicated to my grandfather. Today is his first death anniversary.

Oh my Grandpa!
I wish you could be here,,
To see me become an engineer,
To pat me on my back and say,
"Well done, my dear!"

Oh my Grandpa!
Why you became God's dear,
Don't you have any fear?
The almighty should have allowed you,
To give me more inspiration, here.

I remember the day you were resting,
Resting on the bed of flowers.
That day I cried over and over,
Watching the funeral pyre burn all over.

Oh my Grandpa!
I make my message more clear,
I'll become the best engineer,
Trying all my best and
Make you more happier.

Still, I'll miss that moment,
If you were here
To pat me on my back and say,
"Well done, my dear!"

Exam Time!

Well, not for me but for the 12th standard students.

(If YOU are a 12th standard student, then I guess you are well prepared, because you are reading blogs.)

These days the most tensed people on earth are the Indian 12th standard students. They have a whole burden of preparing for the board exams and performing practicals, on their little tiny heads. Don't worry! Every Indian passed through such phase. Go through these following suggestion which I think, may reduce your tension. Also tell them to your friends.

CrazyEngineers - You'll love it!

Proudly presenting you "The CE - Poem"
I am a crazy boy
I needed some intelligent peers
So I searched on Google,
And I found CrazyEngineers.

To my surprise, it was an awesome site,
Containing KYCEan and Small - Talk,.
I guess, the founders tried with all their might,
To make CE beautiful and fly like a hawk.

Happily, I joined the CE forum,
Where I found quality and original content.
I was surely in the perfect and best forum
And I logged out without any discontent.

If you are crazy,
Or if you are any Harry, Dick and Tom,

White collar businesses in our (my) country

Yesterday I visited a Dentist.
Yes, some caries were developed on one of my teeth, so I went there for filling.
Dentists in my country (India) are very rich. Rather I'd say, all Doctors in India are very rich. So, when my treatment was over he charged a good (high) amount of  money from me. Plus, he gave me no receipts.
I have never seen a doctor who gives receipts to his patients.
No receipts means no taxes! Because of these illegal doctors, our country is behind. I have also heard that doctors and medicine companies have 'tie ups', so that the doctor only prescribes their medicines.

Not only doctors, there are many types of 'white collar businesses persons' in India. Some of them include lawyers, shopkeepers (yes, they also don't give receipts), petrol refilling stations, and many more.

There is our mistake also. We never ask for receipts. Do you ask for a receipt when you refill at the petrol pump? No.
I know you'll ask the same question to me. Even I don't ask for receipts, it has become a habit.

I think we should change. Yes, we need a change to give a thrust to India's development.

{Poem}: Fly High

I wish I could fly
Up above in the sky,
So much high
Where eagles fly.

I know I am thinking too high
But I want to fly
Very high in the sky.
And I'm not afraid to die.

When I fail, I never cry,
Because humans don't cry.
And I'm a human who always try,
To fly higher than high.

Like me, you too try.
Even if you fail, never cry.
Try to take thyself high,
To do something before you die.
