Tamilians love of their language or Narrowmindedness

We all know how strongly tamils love their mothertongue.It is good that they are working forward to protect their language.But i feel in many ocassion that they are narrowminded.Here is an instance that made me believe this general rule of thumb.Again i am not generalising folks in tamil nadu.I am pointing about the majority of them.

Neyveli Lignite Corporation Limited is a miniratna company owned by the indian government.It is located in Neyveli in Tamil Nadu which makes it to behave eccentrically.Usually websites of public sector companies publishes job recruitment notification in English, but some joker in neyveli is adamant that only people from tamil nadu should know about the apprenticeship training in the company.This narrowmindedness is behind the tamil advertisement where the mode of application details are in tamil which is mocking all other fellow indians.

If we are going to progess this way, i afraid that we are showing axe to idea of national integration.Eventhough English is a foreign language,due to its popularity it should be promoted and don't ever think that a tamil itc youngster cannot read job notification in tamil.

Please do not bar indians who speak and read other languages for jobs in a central government psu.And stop national disintegration activities like this!

KARKIDA MASAM--Time for PANCHAKARMA TREATMANT

BLOGPOST BY GUEST BLOGGER Dr. Anish Kumar K.

Karkidaka Masam, or Karkidakam Month, is the last month in the traditional Malayalam calendar followed in Kerala. The month is also known as the Ramayana Masam – the epic Ramayan is read in the month in homes and temples. The monsoon rains are at its peak in Karkitakam month. In this year, Karkidaka Masam began on July 17 and ends in August 16.

Karkidaka Vavu Bali a ritual dedicated to the dead ancestors and relatives is performed on the Amavasi or no moon day in the Karkidaka Masam. Thousands of people visit the sea shores and riverbanks to perform the ritual.

Two decades ago, Karkidaka Masam used to be one of the difficult months due to heavy rains and floods. Majority of the people depended on agriculture and this month used to be the month of scarcity. With the farm fields flooded, there used to be no work and the economy used to come to a stand still. In some places,
due to the rains, it was even hard to venture outside the house. To ward off nature’s fury people used to read the Ramayana in the month.

But things have changed and the there are no heavy rains and agriculture in Kerala. But still people follow certain rituals in Karkidakam month.New ventures and auspicious functions are not held during the month by Hindus.

Another highlight of Karkidakam month is the specific ayurvedic treatments followed by people. Some people drink Karkidaka Kanji, a gruel mixed with herbs and medicines, in the month.

There are people who also conduct Bhagavathi seva in their homes during this month to ward of evil. The Lalitha sahasranamam will be chanted to invoke the devi and the archanas will be offered. In temples there are sahasranama archanas everyday in the evening for the entire period of Karkada.

This month is the perfect time to under go the 'keraleeya panchakarma' Ayurveda treatment for the benifit of the body and soul.

Health is Wealth

dumbbells
At last i have made a decision.It was a painful one.To join a gym and shed pounds under the instruction of a trainer.I have never worked hard to shed kilos in the past.My father admitted me to a karate school when i was in my third class.It was so boring and exercises were hard.On exams i was failing and at 9 years i got yellow, green and blue belt.Funny because they pass you after couple of failures and in the part where fighting occurs, the elders forgive the tiny kid.Parents who admit their kids when they are tiny tots shouldn't do it unless your son is so genuinely interested and talented in the sport.In my case i had no relationship with sports and physical activity.I hated the physical education teacher and his period at school.I was more cared about the dirt that sticks on my clothes doing outside PT at school.

I didn't like to play Basket ball and failed miserably in throwing a short put,And the arrogant PT teacher who never knew to respect a human being.He found it fun at insulting me at whatever ocassions he can.

Again i joined Kungfu at Class X when a master used to teach a group on weekends at school.That was my own initiative and so it was interesting.But he stopped the class after
some weeks.So i couldn't progress in it.

I started to gain weight after 20 years.5 years later i am now trying to lose that which is a difficult task.Now i got 86 kilos.Let's see how much i can shed.I joined gym one week before.Shall keep you get updated about this project through this blog.

And the title belongs to the old headmaster of the school where i studied till Class 4.He used to address the school assembly preaching the proverb,"When wealth is lost, nothing is lost.When health is lost some thing is lost.When charactor is lost, everything is lost".I remember hearing his take on the First Gulf War through the assembly.I was a small kid when Iraq invaded Kuwait and this headmaster told us about the war.

The love of money is the root of all evil

Say no to dowry

There is a promise i try to keep in life.To respect money as it deserves to be and not to love it so hard.I know that money is like heroine to a human being.It can degrade the goodness of a man.People steal or kill to get or retain money.Another thing people do is that they entangle it with relationships.We indians practise the f****ing practice of dowry which is illogical and absurd.

Dowry means a present or gift given to bridegroom after he marries the girl from a family.The family gives their hard earned money so that the girl is taken cared well by the groom's family.Those who battles for dowry interprets this as a gift given to the girl.But in most of the cases, the money ends up getting wasted by the men and the girls have no say in that.

When people mix relationship with money, you can expect problems and calamity there.How can you trade love between husband and wife, parents and children etc with money?Problem is not with the money.It is with the people who use it and love it with their wicked heart.

Typical Dowry Specification of a Malayali girl's Marriage

100 Sovereigns (Around 13 lakhs)

Could go up to 250 for upper middle class families.

Pocket Money

10 Lakhs (Varies)

Vehicle

All models of maruthi starting from Maruti Alto to Ritz, Swift and AStar.Now hyundai i10 is the hot favourite.Have seen one green tavera recently displayed in front of a kalyanamandapam.

Mallu men should be ashamed for what they and their parents are doing.Because this perverts are proclaiming that girls whose parents cannot afford these demands have no right to get married and live a family life with these perverts.I have read in my civics text book in the school that these kind of things are bad for the society and humanity.Why the other rascals who might have read that page for passing their Class X does take it lightly?So why are we wasting government money in educating these rascals?

Womens need to respected and treated at par with men if we want to build a healthy society. Government should make provisions to monitor such social issues like dowry deaths and torture of girls for dowry.Of course laws are there but we need some social watch dog to monitor each wedding so that there comes no calamity after a splendid marriage ceremony.

Maneesh's Adventure With Shares

I heard first about shares from my father who invested in paper stocks of Barmer Lawrie Limited which was converted to Kochin Refineries Limited and then to Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited.All i had an idea was that by buying shares they send you some letter which is written annual report.In the annual report, a form for proxy voting was there.If we go to Kochi, we get free lunch in buffet style.This was the idea i had in mind when i was a kid.

Later my maths teacher, Mr M.G Daniel who has got a beautiful signature and ability to create instant comedy taught me about shares and debentures when he was taking me tution in the eight standard.I learned it well and read again and got interested.I was interested in Maths and the chapters that taught simple interest and compound interest.But i didn't pursue any.

A person named Tomas (aged minimum 20 years more than me), ran an automobile spares shop in the 'ugly' (i hate this place , mainly the people) village where i live. He subscribed to magazines such as india today and business today.I used to borrow magazines from him to read.I was a kid then and read them well.I didn't get a thing.What is this sensex and nifty all about?

I was observing the word sensex closely.Liks all kids ,i too read the word in a different way Sen - Sex .That is the way god made us - a bag full of imperfections and the weight of the bag is growing day by day with fat deposition ultimately leading to blocks in the arteries and heart attacks.

I am wondering now how i wasted time by moving around the pages of the business today with out understanding a word.

Then time passed and i knew nothing about business and has no interest in it.A program in Surya TV (our funny malayalam channel) inspired me during my plus two days.An entrepreneur named Lalaji inspires the audience every week about doing business rather than settle for a job.He asked people to come up and form teams and take up software projects.He shared the name of one website name Elance.com which i heard as elands.com .It took me years to find that what he meants was elance.

I got a friend in my engineering from Kottayam who told me that he and his father were interested in share trading and they indeed were making money.Still i didn't bothered to knew more and shied away from business and finance news.Everything finance related seemed boring to me.

Then in second half on 2006,i read some inspirational books like "Rich Dad, Poor Dad", Guide to Investing and another book by Donald trump and Robert Kiyosaki which made me think differently.Soon i tried to watch NDTV Profit available on my cable tv and it feeled good.

Now i subscribe Business Line and watches business tv channels like CNBC TV18, NDTV Profit, UTV1 Business News etc. But still knows nothing much about investing in stocks.

I started my investing in 2006 and had some instances of losses and success.I bought a bad company called Aztecsoft and lost some money on it.Made some money on idea cellular.

In May 2009 , i booked profit on a scrip BPCL (Bharat Petroleum) and made around 50 percent returns from it holding it around ten months.I made similiar profits earlier investing in the scrip idea cellular.

Now my portfolio is a mixed basket.I shall share you so that if you have more wisdom you may advise me.
MANEESH'S PORTFOLIO
Biocon Bought @ 200
Infosys Bought @ 1533
Federal Bank @ 135
DLF @ 428
Tata Motors @ 400
I have long term view for all those counters.

Good Message from the Lion King

There was a disney show on dooradarshan tv on sundays morning during my childhood.Since we get only doordarshan during those days through our tv antenna, ofcourse it is terrestrial transmission.They were showing english cartoons dubbed in hindi.Uncle Scrooge and his three nephews with a duck face used to entertain me those days.Also micky mouse and two aviator bears were there.I have fantacised building a holiday cottage near the lakeside with a wooden platform protruding to the lake.They got an airplane tied to the platform floating in the lake.The two seater plane took Ballu the bear and his assistant, another tiny bear to the skies.Don't really remember more about this.Just have a hint that Scrooge was a miser and had a treasury filled with dollars and gold and his three menance creator nephews are the heirs.

Now back to Lion King.Lion king was released in 1994 as an animated cartoon disney movie.They promoted it via this program called DisneyWorld.I got a sticker of micky mouse from my cousin brother and i outsourced the painting of micky in a sheet of paper to my sister.She gave a neatly drawn picture.But i didn't get any prize from Disney world.The prize were some Micky Dolls.

I first saw Lion King from VHS hired from a local cassete rental shop for Rs 10.It inspired me.I think it is a good movie for the kids.More than that ,a dialogue from the movie is inspiring.

"When the world turn its back on you, you turn your back on the world."

Nice and meaningful!

Raised in circumstances that seemed fertile landscapes for a person to become a true introvert, i became one such.In many instances of life where i smelt blood, despair and disappointment, such inspiring statements kept me walking.

Hakuna Matata

Means no worries.Forget about your problems and face them with smile.

Easier said than done.Particularly for a person like me who gets dull in a slight setback or change in wind.When man becomes less spiritual, he is susceptible to all kinds of problems and worries.Lion King inspires the cub to return to his homeland and reclaim his kingdom and pride.

Gujarat Shines in Vocational Training & Employment

You can hate the gujarat government or administration for it's past as propagated by the media.But the fact is that you cannot ignore it.They have proved that good governance can be done if the cleansing action starts from the top.

The state which fills 25 percent of the treasury is the number one in vocational training and employment in India.
  1. The employment exchanges in Gujarat has worked unlike in other states and provided maximum employment.The state provided maximum employment through employment exchanges comparing to other states.
  2. As per an all india survey, it is ranked No.1 in providing jobs.
  3. This state is the first one of it's kind to organise regular recruitment events for unemployed people.
  4. India's first Placement Advisory Bureaus have been set up in Gujarat.Similiarly construction skill training centres have been established in the ITIs.
  5. The Placement advisory bureaus in the ITIs have been well acclaimed by our indian government and the world bank.
  6. The government has a tie up with 40 big business houses to provide industry specific training and skill development programs in the ITIs.
While everyone else is sleeping, i think they are working.Just keep religion aside and try to see the facts.By the way, i am a malayali jealous of Gujarat and so sad that the politicians here know only to fight over petty issues.

There are no employment opportunities in Kerala.The only mantra ringing in kerala is "Quit Kerala, Go to Gulf or USA."

The result - Best people are out of here and the cash flow from there replenishes the vigour of the comrades and the khadardharis shouting slogans and organising rituals like hartals.

Heirship Certificate, Marriages and Election

I have been real busy last week.I wanted a heirship certificate issued by the Tehsildar stating 
that my mother owns the property of the father we lost in October.

HEiRSHIP CERTIFICATE
what is a heirship certificate?

A certificate issued by the Tehsildar who certifies that this and this person are the legal heir of the assest or money deposited in a bank account of an expired person.

How did we get this?

The local village officer should make a report saying his finding about us.Here a staff from the office helped in the format of the application.We got to write this and provide death certificate along with it.We carried id proofs of ourselves which was not needed.Again you got to provide couple of aged gentlemen who have been residing in the area and know our family for a long time.You got to give the identification proofs of these two gentlemen.

Now the village officer will sign the report and you got to give it to the Tehsildar who forwards it to the government press in Thiruvananthapuram to publish an advertisement in the government gazatte which is a boring magazine published by the government on poor quality notice paper.

Now the Tehsildar will give you a number regarding the ad.You got to go to thiruvananthapuram and meet the Government Press people and request them to publish the ad in the next government gazatte.If you do not request, it will take a long time to publish.Once it is published , the local taluk office recieves the gazatte but after a long time.So get a copy from the government press and present it at your taluk office.

Now after 30 days after publishing the ad you can approach the Tehsildar for the Heirship 
Certificate.By the way the ad in the gazatte tells that our family has the legal heirship and if 
anyone has any objection, they got to object it before 30 days.

Now there is a staff in the taluk office who drafts a letter in her computer and prints in a poor 
quality paper and you got to get it signed by the Tehsildar and that is the damn certificate.

Why you need it?

When your father pledges gold for an agricultural loan lured by the low interest rate.So even 
if you pay the money the bank won't give back the gold.They got a f**king procedure.You got to provide them death certificate, complete some forms about 15 pages and a document certified by a notary.

LETTER OF DISCLAIMER from a notary

By the way the certificate was typed on a 50 Rs non judicial stamp paper and you got to paste 60 Rs stamp .Provide necessary identification and all the legal heirs need to sign at the office of the notary.Notary is an advocate who got some powers.(i donno much about the powers and function of the notary)

CLOSING A BANK ACCOUNT CONTAINING 1100 Rs

It was an old account of my father.Since it was old nomination was not done there.So you had to provide heirship certificate.Sign a letter the bank employee prints out on a 100 Rs non judicial stamp paper you provides him.Arrange a witness to sign some where in the form.Soon money gets transferred to your account.Even if you have 10 rupees you got to go through all such time wasting f**king procedures.The account was an old one renewed to work in tandem with a new DP account my father opened at a depository.

AN AETHIST MARRIAGE

I attended this not because they are my close relatives but i didn;t know how an aethist marriage looked like.It was simple two chairs placed in the stage and the groom ties knot.No customary things like background music (nagaswaram and melam in nair marriages).But i saw pudavakoda (groom giving bride a garment) in a modified form there.And we got a card greeting the couple from the local CPM office.I am putting that here.Sorry guys for putting it online.If you didn't like the pic ,just call or mail me for removing the pic.

AN AMWAY EVENT

Those MLM guys invited me to their event.I attended it but didn't join it as i didn't like the get 
rich quick mantra of pyramid schemes and network marketing.Those guys spend hours trying to convince me and sign me up in there scheme.And at last they failed like three groups who tried in 2007 and 2008.

Motorolla Mobile Phone and the fool

It is time for introspection.I found that i am one of the greatest fools present on earth.My mom's motorolla cell phone was not able to make outgoing calls.So i checked the balance every thing good there.Dialed the support number which worked fine.Reset the phone and again found unable to call.Now  i thought the phone was bad.I didn;t use the part present between my two years.I plan to go to Kollam (about 60 km) to get it serviced at the motorolla authorised service.But just thought of checking it up at the local mobile store.The guy checked the balance and pointed me that the date has been expired in the account.These BSNL guys won't put a decent notice or sms when the validity of the prepaid connection gets expired.Now what i charged for one year and laughed at myself.

Note: For those laughing there, i know you had your own moments of fun.There is a fool, hero, a villian, an enthusiast, a tragedian and a comedian in every one of us even though you admit it or not.

The Indian Verdict 2009

Indians have made their opinion clear about who should rule them.Pretty clear and loud this time.The UPA is around 260 and NDA around 160 and the rest insignificant.Let me make my 
political inclinations clear.I grew up seeing the congress and communist rule up my state and make a mess here.

When i was a child , i saw Rajiv Gandhi as PM.I saw my father crying when Raji was assasinated by the LTTE.During my school days , i saw the BJP emerging.Might be it was the period when we notice such things.I could appreciate Vajpayee and his policies in government, particularly the nuclear test and the economic policies.I could always appreciate the good things done by the safron brigade.But i have always been a neutral guy with no political affiliation or activity.The 2004 results was the first election results i viewed seriously.BJP suffered great setback then and was reduced to 130s.Now they are in the 110s.And congress in back in the business planning for a next 5 year term with good numbers.

I knew that this time they might not win.The people has anyway voted for a strong government and proved that people like Mulayam, Mayawati, Dev Gowda, Pawar who thinks that with 25 or 30 seats you can aspire to be Prime Minister and misuse power.People voted against the Left.

CONGRESS - RAHUL, PRIYANKA, SONIA AND MANMOHAN SINGH

The victory provides power to the foursome.Here are the things i feel won them public 
support.

National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme

India's poor won't forget to thank if the government is giving him 80 Rs or 100 Rs per  day.Especially in states where there is utter poverty.Do not think of the roads , cleaning of 
canals or farmlands done by the scheme.But consider the money the poor people whom 
otherwise won't have any opportunity to work anywhere in ultrarural villages.In comparatively developed states like Kerala , people has got some money.I am not going to discuss whether they deserve it or not.The project is good, but implementation is bad.Atleast some money is injected to the rural areas.But the systems are bad that the rats eats away the money.

Farm Waiver
Again some deserving people got benefitted.It was necessary to stop suicides.But systems are too bad.I personally know a person who got 1 crore worth property and got waivered Rs 50000 from agricultural loan.Why should he not vote for congress?
Media Friendly
Has support from all media.So you can believe people and expose the opposition 
easily.Remember the tehelka episode and cash for votes scam.Why did the later tapes was not telecasted and nothing happended for the horsetrading in the trust vote over nuclear deal?Many important issues were burried under.The business charge for Israeli missile defence system did not become an issue.
VARUN THE SPOILER
The Varun episode costed BJP dearly.The safron party should understand that they need to have an all inclusive policy and face.The Kandhamal events ashames BJP sympathisers like me.I can't believe Varun Gandhi speaking about retaliatary violence against Muslims as his grandfather was also a Muslim.The Gandhi family (both sides) should stop misusing the name of Gandhi as they have nothing to do with Gandhi fooling people as if they are descendants of Mahatma Gandhi.The people of India wants the Muslims to live peacefully along with the others.It is the Hindus who want the minorities to be safe in the country.It might be true that BJP might have got votes due to Congress's appeasement policy toward the minorities.But if you are going to rule a country, you need to want all the  communities.Not warning Varun Gandhi is sending a strong message to the public and 
people has disapproved.
STRONG Vs WEAK PM
Insulting PM was really bad.Last time they insulted Sonia and she walked away with seats and this time a good PM (though powerless and nominated) and it backfired.
MODI EFFECT
Putting Modi upfront was not a bad idea considering the bad news circulated about him by the media even though he is doing a great job in building Gujarat.You can't get national acceptance unless he reach out to all community.I never have heard any words from him regarding that.He might be a good chief minister he is percieved as a villian by lots of people and depicted as a satan by the media.

It was sad that L.K. Advani had to leave on a sad note.But if you guys need to prove that you are a party with a difference and not like yet other corrupt congress.Congress is reviving due to strong leadership from Rahul Gandhi who might have good intentions about India.BJP has lost a good opportunity but it is for the good as everyone knows the infighting  in the BJP.

Congress need not take people for granted and to carry on the good work what ever they have did.It is bad that the Karunanidhi (sun glass guy) will demand more ministerial berths for his family to indulge in corruption and to steal India.F##K his Setusamudram project.

BJP told in 2004 , "Next time baby".After the Ram of BJP took Vanvas ,Lakshman have been running the company although lost many business associates and top performing managers like Uma Bharti.And they lost their market share in Rajasthan where the competitor is gaining strong.The only reasons to smile was better performing chief ministers and lotus entering south india.Now that it is hearing that Lakshman is also going for Vanaprastham.Hope they learn from the mistakes and get better under some new leader.I suggest Mr. Modi can be the CM  for now and he need to graduate and be open to all indians if he is aspiring to the future PM job.

Indian rupee and us dollar

indian Rupee is trading around Rs 50 for a US Dollar.But he hopes to beat the US Dollar in two years.Eventhough he sees the reality in today's forex market, he is an optimistic guy.In the past too, he had an obsession to beat the Chinese Yuan.He never managed to get even a visiting visa to Beijing.

Indian Rupee was reluctant to take a passport.His guru (rbi governor) told him that he won;t get a visa since he doesn't have a passport .And there comes a point he finds that he cannot be in tune with China.Not that it was more powerful, but since Yuan looked upon Rupee as an outsider or a traitor.This is his feeling.Communist china looked india as an enemy.Not Rupees fault........

Rupee meditated and reasoned that in international trade and business, perceptions matter than facts.

But again Indian Rupee is back, this time he is after the US Dollar.He is going to play all his tricks to it.Indian Rupee feels better when he look outside in Recessionary storms.He still have a long way to go 39 to 51 is not a good sign.He hopes to get the conversion 1:1.......

wish him all the best......

us dollar will wonder and laugh when she hears about the 1:1 conversion...She won't be able to stop laughing..But the fact of the matter is Dollar doesnot know that Indian Rupee exist.

Now astrologers (some guy predicted that crude will go to 150$ and will come back before 2008) predict that Indian Rupee will face US Dollar in the same bench.

Questions
  1. Will Rupee be at par with Dollar?
  2. Do you think dollar deserve a better conversion rate?
  3. Will dollar come back to present conversion rates if such an unlikely even in the story occur?
  4. Do you see any thing larger information in this foolish story?

Disclaimer: The post is purely fictional and has nothing to do with the said currencies or countries...i am sorry if i have offended anybody.....ofcourse i have not.....

Author: Sorry if it bored you.......just random thoughts...........by the way i am not drunk....:)

Google says UPSC website is bad

we usually see that due lack of attention towards security issues, government websites are susceptable for hacking.Now a google search on upsc shows the presence of malware there.
web search for upsc on google
And when you visit the page in google's browser, you get a warning.

Google warns visiting UPSC Website
UPSC is the autonomous body that does recruiting for government organisations.It conducts the civil services and engineering services examinations.So lot of people are visiting this site.if the warning is true, all those people are going to get infected .(oops it's not like swine flu.....it affects the pcs only and not the humans)

RealClearPolitics.in has chosen the best domain name

Real Clear politics India
We are rating another indian political site called RealClearPolitics.in Selecting a domain name for your website is also important in getting it noticed and familiar with the users and general public.In this case, there is an american political news site realclearpolitics.com which makes this site also good to attract general public interested in politics but from india.The good thing is that in the home page after the site name they have added dia to make a sense.

The site has average design.The placement of the banner advertisement is fine with user and 
apt for the site.They did a good job in not crowding with advertisements.The publishers guarantee a platform for disseminating neutral indian political news and to hold discussions without any agenda setting by the publisher.

The homepage aggregates content from different job sites.When you click a news title, you can read a small paragraph of the news.Clicking the read more hyperlink takes you to the original sources.They have got a blog which presently has only couple of articles.

Videos

Videos embedded from youtube is present at this website and categories in different categories. It seems the site development team is adding the videos and users can rate it.

Poll

Yes polls are conducted in these pages.But the central part of the page shows opinion polls of different tv news channels, magazines and newspapers along with site's seat numbers generated by averaging the different opinion polls.The site's polls are actually on right side.

Issues

Different News item pages are classified and organised under different alpabets.

Profiles of different leaders eyeing the top job is also created in this site.This site lacks  interaction with users and a good forum even though they say so.What happens in this site is one way communication like a radio from the site to the visitors. But now a days broadcasting mediums like radio and tv offers more user interaction using telephone and sms.

It's getting hotter every year in kerala

Not only in kerala, temperatures have been rising all the years through out the world.Thanks to the phenomenon called global warming which is associated with human invasion.It is caused by a physical phenomenon called green house effect.

You might have seen a green house which is a glass structure insisde which plants are grown in gardens and homes.In a greenhouse, the heat enters is trapped in and makes it hotter.Certain gases like Carbon dioxide (CO2) possess a similiar property and they in the atmosphere acts as a greenhouse making earth warmer.Now due to man's unnatural and sporadic use of fossil fuels, the CO2 in the atmosphere is increading and so does the temperature.


Mother Earth has a Solution

She is so kind and benevolent that evenif you harm her she does come up with a solution.The trees and forest does a check on CO2 as they consume it during the day time.So more trees and forest means you have a chance to make a balance.But again man becomes a savage by poaching in the forest.The cruel two legged animals wants to cut trees to met with the demand for furniture to be kept in posh multistoried offices and residential flats.

Do you know what is happening in a forest?
  1. Young male deers fight for their beloved female.
  2. A baby elephant is bathing tin the water.It's eyes does not look real.
  3. Flying foxes and bats clasps their wings to cool off in this hot climate.Ofcourse they do not have a voltas star rated AC.
  4. Cranes pour water from their beaks to their eggs to maintain the temperature in it.
  5. A young tiger cub plays in the water innocently.
  6. A young hornbill is prisoned in a carved uo compartment in a tree by her mother.She breaks the prison using the beak and escapes.
  7. Herd of buffallos quenches their thirst peacefully in the river.Under the water, a crocodile  looks on.A leopard is also around wishing to jump for it's neck.
  8. When a young male elephant tries to seduce a female, the male matriarch makes a small noise which is enough for the male to retract back.
  9. An antelope crosses the river with her friends.The river will make them fall again and again till she abandon the idea of survival.Many give up.Some make it.
And animals in our forests die of lightning, in other formats like defforestation in poaching.The tiger need to learn to live and survive in a new world with traffic lights, concreted roads and skyscrapper buildings.The future of the elephant is unknown as forests are shrinking.Humans have no monopoly over earth.Earth belongs to the animals, birds and trees too.We cannot damage the earth irreversibly.

To the race who just thinks about themselves

More ice in the polar regions (north and southern pole regions of the earth) will melt as temperature increases.This means sea levels will rise and island nations like maledives would be submerged.Be ready to run when the flood comes.

Note

For those planning to go to the himalayas for safety.There won't be any ice their either.You can't make it because flood is there too.

Google Adsense Sends Cheques using BlueDart Express

Google has tied up with Bluedart Express now.Many publishers has reported that they got the cheques in a different size envelope and was not from the usual Singapore address.Some suggested that it was from Google hyderabad office but that is not confirmed.But another fact is that the cheques do not have MICR code and has no account payee only description.Also the bluedart service has further slowed up the delivery of cheques in addition to a number of holidays and elections.The cheque usually the post man delivers to me in the first week of every month has not reached me till today.

Here is where google says about this.

No More Rent for Some BSNL Data One Subscribers

Hey if you are paying a bill of more than Rs 750 per month as internet charges for your BSNL Dataone broadband connection, then there is a reason to smile.The big boy has waived the regular modem rent (Rs 60 or 90) now.You will see that difference in your telephone bill.

DRINK WATER ON EMPTY STOMACH

It is popular in Japan today to drink water immediately after waking up every morning. Furthermore, scientific tests have proven a its value.We publish below a description of use of water for our readers.For old and serious diseases as well as modern illnesses the water treatment had been found successful by a Japanese medical society as a 100% cure for the following diseases: Headache, body ache, heart system, arthritis, fast heart beat, epilepsy, excess fatness, bronchitis asthma, TB, meningitis, kidney and urine diseases, vomiting, gastritis, diarrhea, piles, diabetes, constipation, all eye diseases, womb, cancer and ear nose and throat diseases.
METHOD OF TREATMENT
1.. As you wake up in the morning before brushing teeth , drink 4 x 160ml glasses of water .....interesting
2. Brush and clean the mouth but do not eat or drink anything for 45 minutes
3. After 45 minutes you may eat and drink as normal.
4. After 15 minutes of breakfast, lunch and dinner do not eat or drink anything for 2 hours
5. Those who are old or sick and are unable to drink 4 glasses of water at the beginning may commence by taking little water and gradually increase it to 4 glasses per day.
6. The above method of treatment will cure diseases of the sick and others can enjoy a healthy life.

The following list gives the number of days of treatment required to cure/ control/reduce main diseases:
1. High Blood Pressure - 30 days
2. Gastric - 10 days
3. Diabetes - 30 days
4. Constipation - 10 days
5. Cancer - 180 days
6. TB - 90 days
7. Arthritis patients should follow the above treatment only for 3 days in the 1st week, and from 2nd week onwards - daily.

This treatment method has no side effects, however at the commencement of treatment you may have to urinate a few times. It is better if we continue this and make this procedure as a routine work in our life. Drink Water and Stay healthy and Active. This makes sense ... The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals ..not cold water. Maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating!!! Nothing to lose, everything to gain... For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food . It will line the intestine.Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

Me, PC Games and an Indian Online Gaming Website

It is really sad to see people playing games online prefering to skip football practice or a cricket match.But times are changing from the old video game with shaky displays to the playstation, xbox and pc games.The animations are of higher quality now.The sound, motion effects are also a main attraction of these games.I am not a big gamer.So i am not in touch with the gaming industry.Of cource i play computer games but not internet or mobile games.But many of us like internet games.

So if you would like to play internet games i shall introduce you a good indian site to play online games if you have a fast internet connection.I have played some games during my college days.The best of them was Max Payne with all that violence and gun shots.I have wasted many hours playing.But still i play a game once a week.It is called Project IGI.Old game though, started playing from 2005 now in some level and haven't completed that yet.Another game i liked was GTA Vice City where i am a criminal or thief wandering through a virtual city.When i first heard about the virtual personality or living website Second Life, GTA Vice city was the idea that passed around me.

Now India games is the site i was talking about.Check out for yourself.

Finally Recession for Adsense Publishers!

Recent times were bad for google as we had to see google.co.in not loading up for some time.Also many people were affected when gmail service was affected.Nobody can make a hue and cry over a free service.Google made sure to extend days of the paid Google Apps users to make up for the days they lost due to the outage.

Adsense publishers are now getting affected by the global credit crunch as the laid off people stays away from internet and ecommerce stores.This means less conversion happens and lesser number of advertisements.According to sources, eCPM of many publishers had dropped to about 100 to 150 percent their average.

Now many publishers are telling about the glitch in the adsense network where clicks were not recorded.See here.It is understandable as money becomes a scarce thing, the booming engine is expected to slow down and cool off.Now the publishers want google to be strong and be a market leader as they are a better paying program.Google Adsense is unique and there cannot be any alternatives.Of course you can signup for many other programs.But Adsense used to pay you the best.So let us see how it goes along.

Some indian publishers have communicated to me that the cheques that used to come on the first week was got on March 10th.And that too in a different formatted envelope mailed from Buffallo (in US), instead of the usual mailing place (which is ofcourse Singapore).Now the new cheque did not have the account payee only inscriptions and it didn't had the MICR number.So tellers at the bank are resisting to send them for collection to nearest Citibank branches.Hope google will take note of that.If they could post something on their blog,it would have been nice.

A World Record Achieved By overclocked AMD Phenon II

Can you believe that?A whopping 6.5 GHz speed was achieved by the AMD Phenon II X4 when it was overcocked in January 2009 in Las Vegas.This was a record breaking peformance 
which broke the FutureMark 3DMark 05 World Record.The processors were cooled to subzero 
temperatures.Phenom becomes the first x86 quadcore processor to break it.At CES 2009, Sapsa & SF3D of Team Finland gets help from Pete Hardman and Sami Makinen of AMD to achieve this.



Now overclocking is an activity done by pc enthuasists who operate the cpu and motherboard at greater frequencies over the designed ones by the company.They believe that this would provide superior performance out of cheap processors.

THese guys have used 500 litres of liquid nitrogen and liquid helium for the AMD Phenom II X4 
processor with "Dragon" platform technology.They have overclocked a 1.8 Ghz cpu to 6.5 Ghz.

It is not suggested that you do the overclocking as it is a way of degrading the dignity of your 
processor.It can cause damage to your motherboards, processors and graphic cards.If you  couldn't cool it well, it just gets burned away.You can't claim warranty when burning electronics away.Now liquid helium is a dangerous and cold substance and not intended to be in contact with your skin.Do not try anything wicked.




Microprocessors are getting faster day by day.The hurdle in making them faster and creating 
integrated electronics (packing transistors as close as they can be) is certainly going to create 
more and more heat.So you need to get it cooled and heat should be dissipated so that the 
electronics would work fine.Temperatures can harm electronics.

Obama Plays Villian in the Outsourcing Saga

The americans have voted for change and they have gone for Obama and loaded him with a huge task to revive the US economy which is in bad shape.Obama was voicing concerns over the tax breaks enjoyed by us companies which offshored jobs to their offshoring centres in India.Everyone thought that his statement were in for the polls.Now he has said again in the State of the Union address that he is going to have a relook in the US tax code.

Pranab and PC expressed concerns over US's new protectionalism.Democrats have been saying for years about this.Microsoft, GE, HP, Motorolla, Pepsi, Honeywell ,IBM etc are among the thousand companies that is offshoring different jobs to their development centres in India and get it done by indian engineers or youths and take the money back to US and get it taxed at just 5.25 percent as against the usual 35 percent of foreign earnings.This is due to a 2004 tax holiday provision for foriegn earnings.

Obama is right about what he is saying.As the ruler, he is obliged to protect the interest of the common people and to make sure that even the weaker sections are living well.For that what he can do is to stand as a facilitator in creating jobs.

BSNL Launches 3G Service

Last week we heard that MTNL launched 3G services in Mumbai and Delhi.Now BSNL has also launched 3G services in different cities.The private players are yet to get the spectrum.Customers need to have a 3G enabled handset and they will have to purchase a new USIM (Universal Subscribed Identification Module) for Rs 300 which will have a validity period of 7 days.

Why should you shift to 3G from the current 2G or 2.5G networks?

High speed data transfer mainly the internet.Speeds of 384 kbps is realistic in 3G network.You can make video calls.Live video streaming and live tv on mobile will appear realistic.Imagining a situtaion when you can see the live video feed from your CCTV on your phone to know that everything is ok at home.Now you know it is the future and sure the operators will invest in the new network as they have already made money from present investments of 2G mobile networks.

Reasons to Smile......Tax Cuts

The interim budget was passed today along with a finance bill and surprisingly the congress has moved away from his earlier stand.They have tinkered with the taxes to boost demand.Service tax is now 10% from 12%.And excise duty have also been made in the tune of Rs 30,000 crores for the exchequer.We desperately needed a booster announcement and it has been done.

Elections are round the corner and the parties are out there to please the public.The congress has come forward to describe Slumdog Millionaire bagging eight oscars as it's achievement.Any way sounds funny........

It is good that cement prices will come down because of these tax cuts.Now we desperately needed lesser taxes on petroleum byproducts like diesel and petrol.The government taxes ridiculously to make people think twice before buying those as they are scare.What a fool's logic?

If the government feels that petrol and diesel are not good for the environment, why do they allow sale of cars, buses and diesel generators.They should be fostering research and development of green technology rather than resorting to idiot's logic of taxing them.The government knows that the rich will buy the fuel at what ever price.It is the poor who finds it hard to buy them..

Japan and China are now going hybrid.Our government is not even thinking to persuade the industry to go green.Instead they encourage them to make nanos and fills them up in the streets.

My Religion - Hindu in the records

As per government records my religion is hindu.I was born to hindu nair parents and they raised me up in that fashion.But i could not identify myself to the religion the hindus follow around me.They do all the wrong doing, drink, steal , cheat and then go to a temple and put some money in the box kept there.They offer some offering to the god and think that god is pleased.By the way they are offering the things to god in exchange of some favours, like more income from bribe for a person working in a Road Transport Office.I could not visualize god as a person offering material benefits inexchange of a bowl of gold coins, poojas etc..

I believe in god and i believe in the scriptures.But i do not believe the whole part of it.I imbibe what i feel comfortable for me.I can understand that Lanka was once a rich and prosperous country but i cannot understand that sun rotates the vindya mountain every day.I can understand that lord hanuman jumps over the sky to eat the sun god or bhagiradha praying and striving to bring mother ganga back to earth.But i cannot accept Lord Ram leaving Mother Sita in the dense forest since some rascal has told some rumours linking her stay at Lanka.

My hinduism is different.I can identify it with what Swami Vivekanandan's description of my religion.But cannot identify with the vulgar groups who paint Ohm in the public road disrespecting it.

Discouraging thoughts on a Positive Day

I do not like to write discouraging thoughts here.But since i have vowed to write honestly, i am typing my heart here.Ever since i left the world of PCB and circuit design, i began working about 15 to 18 hours online.Tremendous hours sitting in front of the computer had made me lose all the human feelings.At one point, i found that i am losing grip of my life.Recently i have made it sure not to work tremendously in the weekends.

This Friday and Saturday i needed to meet my lawyer for discussion about a litigation going on.Both days i worked for a couple of hours.Sunday i made it sure to holiday this time...

I was spending about 12000 Rupees in labour cost for maintaining planted rubber trees for this month.The workers were there and i thought i could holiday there and can do some work with the trees also.So i planned to do the painting on the trees.Painting is done on young trees to protect them from the scorching heat that is yet to come in March and April.


I couldn't photograph me.But i have took a photo of the tree i have painted.My painting skills were tested.Here's how i made the paint.

1. Clay Powder - You get from rubber stores.Bought 5 kg of it.
2. Maida which is refined wheat flour.You get from all stationary stores.Half a kilo.
3. Mix both with water and make it as a white paint.

And on 22nd February i worked painting on the trees not to save money on the labourers but to explore how it would feel.Six days i am working in front of my Lenovo notebook and i desperately needed some change.Other wise i could hire a person for Rs 300 (about 6 dollars) for a day and get it done.Anyway satisfaction was there.

And today the 23rd of February 2009, there is a festival happening at a Siva temple at my village.I could not go there because i was holidaying for the last three days.I started working for a couple of hours.Thanks to the electricity department who put the plug out in the village as a security measure when conducting the festival so that no one gets harmed.Sivarathri is a famous festival for the hindus.But i get sad when every one gets drunk in the auspicious day celeberating it.Is this the right way to celebrate?

So the generator that started at 10:30 is still running at 5:58 pm.And we had some guests.And today out the people i met, two persons again advised me to stop my online businesses and to get a job.Eventhough i hate to hear such advices, i did not showed any displeasure.

Why is the society trying to discourage young entreprenuers unless they show excellent talents?Why does the people always advice that we people from the middle class cannot dream to start a company or do business?I cannot convince people that this is my passion and that is the only reason why i am sticking to it rather than the monitory aspects.I have tried hard to convince them,but they keep asking me again and again.They do not understand that i have an individuality that likes to live adventurously.

Of the 200 people i meet in a month , 190 of them are there to discourage me.100 of them are not at all courteous.They attack me before they get an idea about what i do.50 of them says the same in a soft language.Fourty does not talk to me.They rate me as a loser.But since i do not care for the rating these creatures give me.I just keep walking.......
