Hi! The name is Asim Shankar. I was born in Peoria,
Illinois, USA which is about 150 miles from the Windy City (Chicago)
on the shortest day of the year and moved to New Delhi, India when I was 5. The
last time I updated this website I was 16 years old and was studying in
Modern School, Vasant Vihar.
I enjoy eating junkfood, playing basketball and golf (started learning),
sleeping and am in love with a beige box my dad owns.
Some people may call me a nerd, but here's some justfication for being
Jocks vs. Nerds
Michael Jordan will make over
$300,000 a game: $10,000 a minute, assuming he averages about 30 minutes
Assuming $40 million in
endorsements next year, he'll be making $178,100 a day, (working or not)!
If he goes to see a movie,
it'll cost him $7.00, but he'll make $18,550 while he's there.
He makes $7,415/hr more
than minimum wage (after the wage hike)
If he wanted to save up
for a new Acura NSX ($90,000) it would take him a whole 12 hours.
If you were to hand him
his salary and endorsement money, you'd have to do it at the rate of $2
He'll probably pay around
$200 for a nice round of golf, but will be reimbursed $33,390 for that
If you were given a tenth
of a penny for every dollar he made, you'd be living comfortably at $65,000
He'll make about $19.60
while watching the 100 meter dash in the Olympics.
Amazing isn't it? but :
Jordan will have to save 100% of his income for 270 years to
have a net worth equivalent to that of William H. "Bill" Gates III
I don't really believe in the supernatural but this is something which
will make you ponder :-
Kennedy & Lincoln
Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846, John F. Kennedy was elected to
Congress in 1946.
Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860, John F. Kennedy was
elected President in 1960.
The names Lincoln and Kennedy each contain seven letters.
Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.
Both wives lost their children while living in the White House
Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.
Both were shot in the Head.
Lincoln's secretary was named Kennedy, Kennedy's secretary was named
Both were assassinated by Southerners.
Both were succeeded by Southerners.
Both successors were named Johnson.
Johnson who succeeded Lincoln was born in 1808, Lyndon Johnson who succeeded
Kennedy was born in 1908.
Both assassins were known by their three names.
Both names are comprised of fifteen letters.
Booth ran from the theater.Oswald was caught in a theater.
Booth and Oswald died (Oswald was assasinated, Booth presumably committed suicide) before their trials.
Besides all that, I read a few books every so often (don't we all). I've
tried my luck with musical instruments, but failed. Don't have a sensitive
ear. I love to meet people through this electronic medium and if you would
like to humour me I would appreciate your gesture to e-mail
If you have a interests similar to mine and a website, tell
me about it and I'll visit it.
