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.......

Lemme introduce myself ---- Maneesh J

This post is primarily to introduce myself to the world.I am a twenty five year old man blogging from a remote village in Kerala named Nooranad in Alappuzha District.I am an electronics engineer working online designing websites for different people.I shall give you a pic so that if you happen to see me in the street some where, you will recognize me.Then you can walkin to me and say a hi.

I have been running a career information website for indians for a while.I blog there too.The site is Career Drive India.You can access it at http://careerdrive.in .

I was always averse to posting photos on the internet.I was afraid that some one will take this and make a comical work on photoshop and post it at different websites.Any way i have fought out all those thoughts.This photo is an old one.It was shot on 16th June 2008.Will try to load a new photo.But you know, basically i am a lazy guy.So my promise will take some time.

I am going to be serious with Digital Tyke

Let me say the truth......Even though i have been running this blog for a while,i haven't spend enought time for maintaining this blog.I was lazy whenever i get to blog for digital tyke.Yesterday i got a mail from a user who expressed similiar ideas.

Honestly i hated to share the personal details with the whole world who happen to visit these pages.What ever you write is evidence and people will always judge you with what you write.So it is about the resistance from a part of me stopping me from posting my details on this blog.I want to break free from that part in me and want to reach out to my users.So i am going to make some serious attempts.

The last time i wrote a personal post on this blog was when i was stressed out too
much.Thanks to god for making me delete that bcos it read something similiar to a suicide note.

I have always been an introvert since i recognise the world around me.I was born in a village in kerala named Nooranad.I still live there.But till today i couldn't blend myself to a nooranad typical malayali,I rate myself as one with 60% marks to be a nooranad malayali.I grew up in the same village but could not imbibe the culture of Kerala.I give my self 50% marks as a keralite.It is not that i am not able to apprehend the tradition and culture of my state.I speak good malayalam and follow all the good traditions, those i feel good.

What was that i wrote just now?I intentionally visualised this post would be a useless, information void text and it has been delivered.

And i want  to announce this to the world after long long year.

I FEEL PROUD TO BE AN INTROVERT

Google Adsense For Domains Is Live

Google has opened it's monitization program for those who owns unused domains.You can park google adsense for domains ads after approval and make money from visits to the domain that is yet to be operational.

Every Indian have a debt of Rs 30,000

This is what the last five years of the UPA Government has led us in to.The agricultural loan write off was good but costed the national exchequer.Yes they have collected record income tax collections but why forget the fiscal deficit.

India is a country of the poor.All policy decisions should be made considering the poorest of the poor in the country.The Rs 60,000 crore debt relief was helpful for my Uncle.He possess crores of Rupees worth land planted with Rubber trees that fetches him Rs 30,000 per month by selling rubber sheets.He took an agricultural loan pledging some gold loan and took Rs 50,000 from a village bank and he didn't pay any penny and his loan was written off and his gold was returned.But many people who sold their houses to pay off the debt incurred by cultivating paddy did not found themselves in the debt relief scheme.Their offence that they paid a part in time.

Every Indian is soon going to have a debt of Rs 30000.Here is my source.You will find all the numbers and about the financial stimulus schemes and duty cuts.How many indians can afford this debt?There is no india shining.India is what the movie Slumdog millionaire portrays.Our immediate priority should be to bridge the gap between rich and the poor.

The poor is not asking to give him luxury or to fit an air conditioner at his home.He is just asking to make food items affordable to him.He is just concerned about his livelihood than a war with pakistan, man landing on moon or whether sensex touches 21000 again or not.

The policies of the UPA Government didn't addressed to fight inflation.Ofcourse they did some money tightening steps and the recession resulted in decreasing the inflation index to a level less than five.

But the rulers should understand that people do not want you to feed them.They are asking you not to make life harder.

Note: i do not have the opinion that the nda government was better in this regard.

You are wasting money on your Inkjet Printer

Inkjet printer is a mysterious printing device.You are a home/ small office customer.You find an HP printer cost around 2000 Rupees which can print photos, letters , brochures, media covers etc.You fall for the Hewlet Packard's advertising and you buy it.

Everything seems good in the beginning.When your ink is out, you want to replace a catridge.You go to a store and find two catridges for 1700 Rupees.This happenned to me in 2004.I went for the cheaper option, refueling via a syringe which the local computer store boy did for Rs 100.Refueled ink resulted in damage of the printer.

Now i got the printer repaired in 2006 and it costed me 800 Rupees.Now again the printer went dead after couple of month..If some one wants the printer , i shall give it to you free of cost...........Call me at 9947202625........

If you find value in the crap, it is yours..........................

The Impossible

Jacob was returning after a grandeous party.He was so drunk that he could not walk correctly and he fell many a times and got up back.At the bank of the river, he saw some people queuing for baptisation.Jacob also joined the queue.The priest was shocked when he saw Jacob when his turn was ripe in the queue.

Father asked him whether he was ready for the ceremony and Jacob replied with a yes.Now the priest sank Jacob's head for five seconds and took it back and asked him whether he saw God.Jacob told that he saw only two fish in the water.

The gathering laughed silently.Reining the presence of mind, the priest sank the head again but this time kept it for 45 seconds.When jacob struggled, the head was taken back and he was asked the same question.

while wiping the water in the face and gasping for air, he replied,"Are you sure that god fell in the same river?".

The Unseen Dream

A Senior Executive of an MNC visited the company canteen after heavy midday meals for the 
coffee even during the period of recession.He was sitting in the cafeteria and noticed the boy 
cleaning the table tops.The old man decieded that he should be the person to spend time for the break.

He asked the boy.
"What is your monthly salary?"

The boy replied with a smile.

What are your future plans?

The reply was silence.

Where would you see yourself after ten years?

The boy glanced him with an unfriendly look.

The man in suit continued his discourse.
"Do you know when i came to this town, i had no money?But today i have everything.
Name.......Fame............Money.............Power...........Esteem........"

What do you have ?As a poor canteen boy with no future dreams and expectations, you 
possess nothing?Tell me boy, what do you have?

The boy replied while walking towards the kitchen, "I got to go because i have some work  
pending."
