Life gifted by God

During his creation, after making donkey, God told,"You will be named Donkey.It is your destiny to carry the burden from dawn till dusk and work hard.You will live 50 years.You shall take grass and leaves as food".The donkey replied,"My lord, i am accepting your judgement.But i have a prayer.50 years is too long for me to survive my boring life.So could you please reduce my lifespan to 20 years".God granted his request.

Next god created a dog and told him,"You will guard the house of man and would be obedient 
servant to him.You will eat what Man feeds you and leave 30 years on earth".The dog told him 
that 30 years is too long to lead a life of a servant and asked him to reduce it to 15 and it was  granted soon.

The third creation was a monkey.He was made so that he would jump from one branch to 
another.God told that you will leave 20 years without sitting anywhere idle but jumping from 
branch to branch.Monkey told god that without a static place living 10 years is itself difficult.So 
could you take back the remaining ten years?And god heard that too.

Finally man was created.God told,"You are man.My only creation who can think and develop and excel with knowledge.Your mind and brain will be superior to others and you rule the world for 20 years.Man replied ,"Granting this much powers and 20 years is too little for me.Could you give me back the 30 years rejected by donkey, 15 years rejected by dog and 10 years rejected by monkey."And God granted him what he asked.

So man lives his life for 20 years and after marriage lives the life of a donkey for 30 years  carrying the burden of family matters working dawn to dusk to make the life of his family better and 15 years he live the life of a dog guarding the house for his children and wife staying there taking the food that they give.Finally he lives the life of a monkey for ten years depending on his son or daughter at their mercy.......... and making monkey like gestures to please his 

Friends, this is human life.Really boresome ...right!.......

The Change has Come

While writing on this post, i am watching the live telecast of Obama's swearing in ceremony.Barack Hussein Obama's dream run to the white house was remarkable.Change 
was his keyword and what remains to see is how he does that to the system.Atleast Americans 
can hope for the best in the coming years, even though they are sinked throat level in trouble.

Now can change ever come over to India.For the 2009 polls, we can see all our parties misusing change.See what change means to different people.

BJP - L.K Advani.
India Inc - Narendra Modi
Congress - Rahul Gandhi
BSP and Communists - Mayawati

But the indian have nothing to hope.Even if Advani win, he won't be powerful.We have seen the rot in BJP when A.B.Vajpayee was the Captain.Whichever party rules, all shady things will be there.Also BJP is not strong to win India.Mayawati will emerge as a trouble maker.

Even if some one from either of the major parties (BJP or Congress) win, there won't be much 
chance.Because government is a system consists of misdeeds of different administrations.One person or idea cannot change things all of a sudden.In india if some on with a resolve happens to sit in such a position, the clowns over there will throw him away.We have seen A.P.J. Adbul Kalam didn't get his second term eventhough being popular and neutral image among the indians.Because the jokers are afraid of his iconic status.

But change should happen at the top.Otherwise it cannot.If our rulers follow the dharma, it is 
sure that the subjects will also tend to be dharmic ones.The fact that the politicians do all the 
wrong doings and yet are hailed by the public.As a society ,our moral values are on a decline. That is why we get the rulers that we deserve.

And back to Obama...I feel jealous about the Americans.Wish he brings change to America.Wish he brings peace to the financial markets.Wish him be instrumental in softening the Uncle Sam's image in the world.Wish him make america a proud and great nation rather than an imperialist and rogue nation.

Home Generator Set Buyers Guide

We are living through a time when we cannot expect the government and society to work their part and will make you happy.We have seen that cars queuing up and people quarelling for who's first at the petrol pumps when Public Sector Oil Company Officers and Truck Owners striked last week.The utility companies of the kerala state governments is in shreds, namely KSEB.

It is good that government owns KSEB as it is a strategic industry.Power Sector is a facilitator.If it does well, we can expect kerala to make progress. Now what is happening over there.No innovations and mismanagement is the keyword of KSEB.Missing production targets and increasing transmission and distribution losses.I know that the same engineers and administrators can work well and do excellence if they are recruited in some company in the Middle East(Gulf).So it is not about the brain.It is only about the will and the political and trade union culture we have in Kerala.

Why we need a loss making public sector firm?Me, the taxpayer need to pay for the inefficency 
of some clown in the f***ing  board.Meter Rent, Installation charge, education cess on tax, 
thermal subsidy.......this land belongs to devil whose raj is running.

I have embraced the idea of a home generator set dumping the so called "inverter" which KSEB also do not suggest for it's consumers during the usual half an hour power cut.These clowns will sure lead to four or five hours power cut during the day time.To keep up my blogging and maintenance of my websites.I bought a small genset from near by town.It was not a bargain.

Uninterruptable Power System (UPS)

This thing is what local people call "inverter".This device employes a rectifier, battery charger,  and a backup battery and an inverter.Battery is charged using the device's battery charger 
circuit.So ac power is converted to dc and is stored as Chemical Energy in the battery.Now when mains power is on, the load uses the mains.When mains goes off (when kseb gifts you darkness), the high speed switching circuit switches to the inverter circuit which converts dc from the battery to ac power that can be used for your appliances.

  1. Computers can be used as switching happens in microseconds (or milliseconds).
  2. Automatic Switching happens so you do not have to bother about any thing.
  3. Easy to install if you know a certified Electrician.
  4. No sound or noise pollution.Can be said as a clean and green thing.
  5. If you are not using it, the power stays in the battery.While in the generator, if you are not using it, then also the fuel is going to burn away.
  6. You don't want to hunt for kerosene and petrol.
  1. Bulky Device with big battery looking bad in your living room if you are planning to keep it there.
  2. Batteries are expensive now.
  3. Buy good ups (read inverter the world marketing people have taught the public), the local ones are going to get bad certainly.Only a skilled technician can repair the local ones.The branded ones have their own service centres.
  4. You know the habits of batteries.Won't be good after some use.They won't hold charge as they used to after each discharge.
Home Genset (Generator Set)

A home genset is a power generator that produces electricity by burning fossil fuels.There is a 
4 stroke engine similiar to your motorcycle's engine.This engine drives a generator and power is generated due to electromagnetic induction (i forgot all those basic things).Now Honda is the leader in generator sets in India.This thing certainly pollutes.Different models running on petrol, kerosene and LPG are available.Now portable series are small light weight generators for home users providing lesser power.They are noisy.The model i bought has 85dBA noiselevel.For generators providing more than 1KVA , government has made mandatory to make them silent.So the manufacturers cover the body with metal casing and so it becomes silent.

I initially planned to buy EXK 1200 which is recoil start and provides 1200 VA of electricity and is in silent series.This thing costs 33,500 and it is sure to use a lot of kerosene.If i am using 
300Watts from a generator capable of providing 1000W, even if i use 300W, the same amount of fuel that would produce 1000W will burn away in that period of time.So i settled for EBK 650.

Honda Portable EBK650

EBK650 weighs 22 kgs and has a red and black body.It used petrol to start and runs in petrol. This is because petrol has a lower boiling point than kerosene.Before each run, you need to drain the kerosene from the the generator which is an easy process.This is to ensure that the engine starts in petrol.You can run a EBk650 for 6.5 continous hours.It can store 3.4 litres of kerosene and 0.27 litres of petrol.The starting mode is recoil start means you need to pull a string to start similiar to kickstart in a bike.Self start costs 7000 rupees more and i feel pulling the string is better than gifting 7000 rupees to honda and the dealer.It provides rated power of 450 VA and a maximum output power of 550VA.


Call only electricians who know how to do it.You need to install an change over switch (automatic or manual).Manual change over switches are cheaper but then you need to manually change the switch to generator when power goes and similiarly back to mains when mains come back.Automatic change over Switches switches to generator power but you need to pull recoil and start it.When power comes, the  automatic changeover switch switches off the generator.That is why i say additional wiring goes in to the generator.An electrician with good knowlege can only install this.If you gave chance to some poor guy, he may mess up with it.

  1. A person working online can work online even when power goes for a day.Remember a ups need to get charged if all charge goes.Here you need to refill the fuel only.
  2. Complaint with KSEB and saves power of the nation.Power gets wasted in the batteries.
  1. Poisonous Carbon Monoxide and irritating noise.
  2. Kerosene is not readily available.LPGs cannot be used as they are subsidized for domestic use only.Never economical with commercial LPG cylinders.
  3. Starting Process is difficult for ladies and housewives who are going to use this.
  4. Petrol gets evaporated in the hot tanks.(Maneesh's wild guess and not scientifically proved)
  5. Shell out money for fuel.
  6. Maintenance like oil change etc needed once in a while.
How to Start?
  1. Drain kerosene from the carburator (easy process) and pour it back in the tank.
  2. Put engine switch to Start with choke on.
  3. Off the choke  and shift engine switch to run.
  4. Put Circuit Breaker to On.
How to Stop?
  1. Put Circuit Breaker to Off.
  2. Put Engine Switch to Off.
Visit Honda Siel Power India website for more details about their products.

Your use determines what you want, a UPS or a generator.By the way Generator EBK650 costed me 20700 Indian Rupees along with the automatic changeover switch.A labour charge of 600 Rupees to the electrician and 500 rupees worth other electrical wires and connectors.

The Omen Around Satyam

Investors of Satyam everyday wake up hearing bad news about the company.Now the management has admitted that they do bad practices everyday.

Maytas Deal
It was avoidable since maytas is satyam written in the reverse order.He was going to buy his son's infrastructure company.So he is going to take money from Satyam balance sheets to give to his son's company to finance ongoing infrastructure projects.The independant director resigns.We expected the others.

World Bank Blacklists Satyam
World bank black list the software service company from being it's client due to bad business practices.

Promoter holding Reduced in Satyam
Those who hold the shares pledged with them of the promoters were sold at whatever price they could get.  

And Now Raju's Bomb
That Satyam's balance sheets were blown up and was not real.It was virtual.About 7000 crores were misrepresented and sebi knows not a thing about that.Ramalinga Raju wrote in the letter he wrote on the ocassion of stepping down.The auditors did a good job.If they are doing this way, we can see more of this from their clients.ICAI is going to banning the audit firm who did the job for Satyam named PWC.

Satyam share is now trading in the level of Rs 42.61.
Aberdeen has sold their share of 5.37 percent at this level and got out from Satyam.They were the largest investor.
