Smile please!

While times are tough and some are throwing themselves off buildings, at least one hardy soul out there has retained his sense of humour. The guy who writes 'The Secret Journal of Rakesh Jhunjhunwala.'

Not Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, silly. It's a fake blog. But such a delightful one!

I just hope Rakeshji has retained his sense of humour and laughs along with the rest of us. It's a singular honour you know. How many people have a fake blog dedicated to them, which is actually more interesting than what the real man would write?

Sample (a post by 'Rakesh' on that recently conducted exam named after an animal): If you were to pass this test and get an MBA degree you would end up working for someone rich like Mukesh Ambani or Kumarmangalam Birla. Would you prefer this or be a self employed professional like Abdul Karim Telgi?

And this post on what Barack Obama could learn from Deve Gowda is truly a classic. Don't miss the pains taken to illustrate each point with appropriate pictures!

I guess the brain behind this one is inspired by the Fake Steve Jobs blog. Well, if this one ever unmasks himself I tell ya, he would give the Cyrus Broachas of the world a run for their money!

And how do I know it's a 'he'? Well... I just know. Women don't care about stocks and stock brokers that much and I may add, very very few are able to kick ass when it comes to humour.

Anonymous blogger, I salute thee! And thank ye for sprinkling a li'l bit of sunshine in our financially withered lives!! May your tribe increase :)

And oh, if you ever want to write for JAM magazine, it would be an honour.


  1. whoever is writing the blog is doing a great job... and the 'Deve Gowda is Better than Obama' post is really too good.

  2. as a long time follower of "Fake Steve", i feel offended that you compared him with Cyrus :)

    BTW Fake Steve has revealed himself long time ago.. he is Dan Lyons, a very famous reporter (from Fortune, Newsweek etc).. check out his old postings and his book too.. no one moons at silicon valley as he does

  3. Who sd women don't care abt stocks...??? Dey much do, as you and me...provided they don't share their ideas in groups like us..and as far as Rakeshji is concerned, he is a GEM..

  4. Ok! i dint know this all these days. I was wondering how is finding time to find all those pictures in Deve Gowda post. I really enjoy reading those posts. What ever be the case he drives a bit of traffic to my blog.Thank you (Fake) Rakesh ji

  5. An example of a famous woman who cares about financial investments and makes money off her advice: Suzie Orman.

    An example of famous comedienne:
    Ellen Degeneres (and a TON of others, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler included)

  6. fake e-mail ids, fake orkut profiles, fake facebook profiles and now fake blogs.....WTF(what the fake....lolz)

  7. Whether fake or real, blog is a real enjoyment, no doubt about it. But how do u know it'z a fake one? Obviously he may not have much time for all the research behind tha t. Some ghost writer must be writing for him?

  8. I have been following the blog for months now and its a real fun and at times you wouldn't stop laughing at those pictures.....true entertainment!

  9. Hi,
    I have been reading both blogs and
    he commented about you recently :)

  10. 活得真累,有些时候我们会禁不住的这样感叹,那些不顺心的日子,我们也总感觉活 wow gold 得真烦。在寻找了千百种理由之后,当我蓦然回首曾经走过的那些岁月,我惊然的发现,其实生活赐予我的,并没 wow power leveling 有与别人有什么的不同,呈现在我视野里的生活,每个人其实都一样,不同的仅仅是我们的胸襟中缺少一份“坦然”。   当看见那些假日的钓鱼者,一大早的出门,在夕阳下却拎着空空的鱼篓回家时,一路上却留下欢声笑语。

      当看见那些早出晚归的农民,在晚霞的辉映下回家时,那张写满疲倦的脸上 wow gold 却洋溢着朝霞一样的笑容。


      突然想起来这样的一句话“天空留不下我的痕迹,但我已飞过”其 wow power leveling 实,这不就是对坦然最好的诠释。


      我坦然,于是我心美丽!我心 replica rolex 美丽,于是人生跟着美丽。


      坦然,其实就是平淡中的一份自信!坦然 wow power level 是一份快乐!是一种潇洒!


      生活里许多的人,我们是捉摸不定的,甚至 power leveling 防不胜防。但,我们不必去计较,更不必去埋怨,我们唯一做的是,当我们必须去面对他们的时候,同样的奉上我们的真心。以君子之心度小人之怀,那不正显示我们的博大的胸襟吗?

      我曾经爱过也哭过,曾经功成名就过,也 rolex replica 曾失败没落过。但,当我回首这一切的时候,我仍然感到骄傲,因为:我曾勇敢地面对了这一切,且光明而磊落!

      假如生活给我们的只是一次又 lotro gold 一次的挫折,一次又一次的失败,其实,这也没什么的,因为那只是命运剥夺了我们活的高贵的权利,但并没有夺走我们活的快乐和自由的权利。

      没有蓝天的蔚蓝,我们 rolex 可以有白云的飘逸。


      没有草原的芬芳,我们可以 power leveling 有小草的青翠。


      坦然,会让我们的生 rs gold 活美丽而快乐!
