Generate your online e-aadhaar card easily

Aadhaar Demystified

aadhaar card is an essential commodity now,

 

Aadhaar ,meaning foundation in indian languages, has become a hall of shame  or an object of inconvenience for the common man (aam aadmi). Despite a prominent personality like Mr. Nandan Nilekani at it's helm, India's aadhaar project is an epic fail. UIDAI or unique Identification Authority of India is a ghost body created by the central government.It is yet to get complete legal and constitutional status to discriminate people by providing gas subsidy {LPG subsidy for domestic use} only to aadhaar holders.

Why India needed an ID System?


India was in the dark about it's own citizen.Infiltration from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Srilanka happens all the time.Politicians provide illegal immigrants (a large chunk are run away criminals and terrorists) with indian election id cards inexhange of votes / money.

Some crooks were eating up subsidies designed to reach deserving common man [aam aadmi] by forging fake documents and multiple accounts.

Features of Aadhaar 


☼ A duplicate aadhaar is not possible because the aadhaar number alloted to a resident is linked with his biometric information (finger prints and iris data).

☼ At any office, aadhaar number can be used for verification by matching it with data in the central database.Just give your aadhaar number to a government department / white elephant mammoth public sector company, the department can get to know you without you submitting many documents as proof.

☼ Government want to replace present corrupt public distribution system with direct cash transfer to aadhaar linked bank accounts.They are accepting that they are unable to change the corrupt system.

☼ Government believes people will vote for them on seeing money credited in their accounts.In a way they are bribing the voters.

Is it compulsory?


It is compulsory, man eventhough the government and court reassures you.You are going to lose freebies from the government like LPG Subsidy, Fertilizer Subsidy etc. if you don't have an aadhaar number.

How to get an aadhaar number?


Walkin to government's aadhaar enrolment centre with all documents you have proving your name, date of birth, gender, address, parent/ guardian details, contact number.They will take your photo , finger prints of ten fingers and iris scan.You get an enrollment acknowledgement slip.

What is e-aadhaar?


e-aadhaar means generating an electronic aadhaar card from aadhaar website for you to use at government offices.

Requirements to generate an e-aadhaar Card


☼ Computer with Internet connection and Adobe Acrobat Reader installed. Costs Rs 30 if you browse the internet at an internet cafe.Make sure to save the e-aadhaar letter PDF in a CD/DVD or pen drive.

☼ A Colour Laser Printer Shop neaby which usually print colour laser prints for Rs 20 per sheet {A3 size}. 

☼ A document lamination shop where you can laminate your certificates with plastic using a lamination machine.Typically costs Rs 30 or less.

How to generate e-aadhaar?


☼ Check status of aadhaar by entering your enrollment number, date and time of enrollment, Pincode and Captcha code and click submit at the website http://resident.uidai.net.in/check-aadhaar-status .




website where you will check e-aadhaar status




aadhaar enrollment acknowledgement slip contains acknowledgement number and date generated

Some Thoughts on Ishwara or God

space
Ishwara or God is an intangable concept which cannot be expressed well in words.However well we try to express, it won't be sufficient to explain the concept.Ishwara or God must be the one who created Sun, Moon, Mountains, Ocean etc.It is not possible for a mortal to create such structures.The diversity of the structures clearly points out to ruling out man or animal behind the creation.God is formless, omnipresent and bodyless.We cannot see him with our naked eyes because of the above said characteristics.He is not placed somewhere.He is everywhere.God is inside us and present in top,bottom and around us everywhere.We should not forget that the one is present in everything.

We should remember it everytime because then we cannot feel to think about negetivity and bad thoughts.The meaning of the word Parameshwara is the ruler of the whole universe.The omnipresent god knows everything.So if he can hear and see what wrongs we commit, we will be conscious to avoid the bad practises.So we cannot say lies, nor bad mouth a person, cannot think of bad ideas and thoughts.

The following sooktha (wise words) from Ishavasya upanishad cements the above said idea.


Om Isavasyamidam sarvam yatkiñca jagatyam jagat
tena tyaktena bhuñjitha ma grdhah kasyasvid dhanam

Translation:


God resides in the entire universe and in all that has everpervading qualities in the universe.Consume what ever god has given for your comforts.But this wealth is not anyone's (belong to everyone) so do not wish to consume it with greed.

Xbox One a gaming plus entertainment device from microsoft

xbox one
Microsoft has launched their new gaming console Xbox One. Since the launch of Xbox 360 in 2005, microsoft has been the leader in video gaming console market followed by Sony Playstation and Nintendo Wii.Sony had recently announced their new platform , the Playstation 4.

an all in one entertainment system


To counter Sony PS4, Microsoft followed a different path. Xbox One is a complete package of an entertainment gaming device with Skype, internet, live TV, streaming movies (netflix player) and video on demand tv programs. Xbox one supports all windows 8 apps on it. While playing a video game, without a glitch you can change to watch a television program. You can play the game and video chat with your friend at one portion of the TV simultaneously.


Specification of Xbox One


  • 8 Core x86 architecture CPU 
  • 8 GB RAM
  • 500 GB Hard Disk Drive
  • Blu-Ray Drive
  • 802.11 Wireless Connectivity with WiFi Direct
  • HDMI Connectivity for1080p hd video
  • USB 3.0

Kinnect accessory need to be connected with Xbox one all the time for it to function properly. This is annoying.You can watch Blu-Ray movies on Xbox One which is a good feature.In Xbox360 that was missing.Xbox One does not support older version games.This is because they have used a different CPU this time around.It is similiar to the situation of Sony Playstation 3 and PS4. PS4 does not support PS3 games since it uses an x86 processor avoiding PowerPC architecture used in PS3.

Generally game developers love xbox platform and make this platform attractive for gamers. New titles from EA sports will come up for Xbox One based on their new EA ignite engine.Microsoft will launch 15 xbox one titles within one year of xbox one launch.Microsoft Halo is definitely there.Call of Duty Ghosts is also expected.Sony focussed on a gaming only device when making PS4 while microsoft school of thought was for an all in one device in the form of xbox one.

Making money online using Amazon Mechanical Turk

I have been asked by lot of people about ways of making money online. Most of those ask me are working people who want to make an extra income with their typing and english language skills.Some of them are housewives and retired workers pondering over what to do with their extra leisure hours.But all them want to make money from internet.I used to outsource content writing, proof reading, lead generation works of Orangis Online to freelancers in the past. I am happy that i could help some people through my company.Through this post, i want to introduce a crowdsourcing service of Amazon, Amazon Mechanical Turk. First of all i am putting a disclaimer in this post.I am just introducing a service only. I cannot guarantee you any returns.This however is one of the best way to earn money online.

amazon mechanical turks
It is pretty easy to apply as a worker at amazon mechanical turk

 Crowdsourcing is the way in which a specific task is divided in to small bits and pieces.Such small bit of a task is despatched to a crowd through the internet. When the crowd does their bit,the whole job gets finished. Each member of the crowd does not even get the idea of the whole project. A small bit of a job won' t be tedious either.It will generate less money to the worker.However worker will do lot of such bits of a job and so eventually he makes a good amount of money.This is the concept.

amazon mechanical turk dashboard
A representation of amazon mechanical turk dashboard
The international shopping service, Amazon has a crowdsourcing service called Amazon Mechanical Turk.Their philosophy is that some works require human intelligence. It is actually a marketplace where requester (employer) divides work required to HIT (Human Intelligence Task).Worker is a person among the crowd of people who are ready to work for the requester. A worker can see number of HIT with description. He can work on an HIT, submit the result and you get the money. Generally the task would be data entry, spell check, transcribe an audio recording etc.

Here is an example of an HIT.You are given a keyword.You have to search that keyword on google.And return the URLs of relevant result.You would be paid $0.08 for each result.The requesters pay money to amazon, Amazon takes a ten percent cut and pays the workers the promised money in cash or as gift certificates.

How do you get paid?


If you are a US resident, you get the money to your US bank account. You can also opt for redeemable amazon gift certificate.Indians also have the choice of receiving money in indian bank account. Rest of the world workers will only get money as amazon gift certificate with which you can purchase from amazon website.

Will you be cheated by Requesters?


It is a marketplace so crooks can also get there.They can cheat you before they are identified by Amazon and thrown out from the service.

Recent Ban on New Accounts


For new amazon workers, there is bad news.Recently because of oversupply of workers, amazon is not approving new workers from India , Canada and UK.When you are applying , you will get this standard response if you are from this regions.

We have completed our review of your Amazon Mechanical Turk Worker Account. Unfortunately, you will not be permitted to work on Mechanical Turk. Thank you for your interest in Mechanical Turk.

I am hopeful that this situation will change and workers from these regions will be readmitted soon.Though you cannot make lot of money through Amazon Mechanical Turk initially, it is possible to do it by delivering large number of HITs quickly as you get experience.

South Indian Jugalbandhi Classical Instrumental Music

Nagaswaram Kacheri is a must in south indian marriages of hindus in Kerala. I was attending the marriage of my first cousin (maternal uncle's son). A jugalbandhi concert was organised to replace conventional nagaswaram kacheri. So Odakuzhal, Violin, Ghatam, Mrudangam, Chenda along with the Nagaswaram made the music beautiful.I am sharing the music i captured in my camera. Forgive me for the bad video quality since i am not a pro.

Saying YES to learning Sanskrit

Dream of learning samskritham
I have different dreams which i wish to materialize in this life.One such dream was to learn sanskrit to read ancient texts such as vedas,upanishads, puranas in their original form.This idea was lying dormant in me for years.In April 2013 i heard from Mr. Madhu , a psychology counsellor about a ten day sankrit speaking camp at Vettikode about 5 kms from my village.Immediately i said yes.........

The ten day camp went well and it ended on 26.04.2013. It was very difficult for me to attend considering my time constraints running Orangis Online.However i had a resolve to do it. The program was conducted by Vishwa Samskritha Prathistan or Samskrithabharathi which is a non profit organisation working to spread sanskrit. There is no FEE for 10 day [20 hour] Samskritha Sambhashana Shibiram (Sanskrit Conversational Workshop).The teacher is taking the class free of cost. Only the organisers need to arrange interested students and a place for the class to happen.After the class i felt so happy and content to have participated it.

Sanskrit was the language spoken in Asia from Kanyakumari to Afghanistan in the ancient times.However after British invasion of India, the british took a decision to shut down all sanskrit schools. Indians are still in that hangover even after the british has left India. So we are seeing sanskrit as a DEAD language in India spoken only by a minority and at remote locations like Mattur village of Karnataka, Jhiri of Madhya Pradesh etc.I did not become a sanskrit scholar after the 20 hour class.But i learned the basics like an LKG level kid at kindergarten.I decided to study the six month correspondance course of SamskritaBharathi called Praveshah which is a basic course to learn sanskrit.The examination will be in December 2013.

How to Learn Sanskrit Language?
Are you interested to learn Sanskrit?
You might not get any government job.There may not be any speakers around you. Westernised indian people around might view you as a relic. You would have to teach your family and friends to use the language.You will require lesser words to express your feelings.Sanskrit is that kind of a language.Samskrita Bharathi will help you in your endeavour.They will arrange a ten day 20 hours sambhashana shibiram near you.They will teach only in sanskrit. So you will learn the language by talking.There are different teaching methodologies available. You can choose any of the different methods.

Visit http://samskritabharati.in/ for more details if you want to learn sanskrit language in India.

If you are in kerala , contact the following address of Samskritabharathi.

Honda's Diesel Car Amaze Offers 25 km mileage

honda amaze sedan india
When the sales of diesel cars is thriving in India due to the difference in price between petrol and diesel, Honda is amazing people by introducing their first diesel car in India. Honda is promising that Amaze will run 25.8 km for one litre of diesel.It is positioned to be a small sedan with necessary space, features and decent finish.Honda is giving maruti dzire and toyota etios a run for their money with the launch of amaze in the same segment.

Amaze is the sedan version of Honda Brio.Brio and Amaze were both born and brought up in Thailand and Japan.Engineers from around the world teamed up at honda R&D centre at Bangkok to bring out this product.Amaze comes under the category of compact sedan where the length of the cars would be less than four metres to avail lesser excise duty (manufacturer tax benefits).Amaze does not look like it has been chopped off or a tail being added to the hatchback version.The wheelbase has been increased by 60 mm.This resulted in big roof and larger doors.The interiors are similiar to that of Brio.If you are comparing the interiors with Etios, you have to admit that the interior is of better quality.The interior is a combination of biege, chocolate and black finishes.Driver seat is adjustable.There is legroom in rear seats  and lot of storage space also.400 litre boot space is amazing considering the small size.The knee room of 930 mm is the same as that of honda city, the bigger sedan of honda.

side view honda amaze

Honda has been developing diesel engines since 2003.2.2 Litre i-DTEC was developed in 2008.1.5 Litre diesel engine used in amaze is from this series.This is the smallest diesel engine manufactured by honda.The main features of the all aluminium engine which the honda calls 'Earth dream technology" are aluminium block, thin crank shaft, short & light weight pistons, improved cooling system, performance enhancing engine oil. etc. The machine produces 100 Bhp power and 200 Nm torque.Aluminium does not have the noise absorbing capabilities of cast iron or other denser metals. So you get a noisier engine to deal with.
honda amaze brown

The petrol amaze also has got a 1.2 litre responsive engine.There is an automatic transmission variant for the petrol version.

honda amaze rear view

Digital Tyke Opinion

Diesel version is economical and powerful and 25.8 kmpl is not a figure that should be neglected.It is noisier than Dzire or Etios, verita, manza.Petrol Amaze fetches you a mileage of 18 kmpl & the automatic version returns a slightly lower figure of 15.5 kmpl.I would be surprised if Amaze does not capture the market.Hope honda does not mess up in marketing similiar to what they did with Jazz.

My Sivarathri Festival 2013

Sivarathri Festival is a prominent festival of hindus.In nooranad village, the villagers celebrate the festival relating it to the annual festival in Padanilam Parabrahma Temple.

Padanilam Shivaratri is an excellent opportunity to meet all the NRI Villagers.Most of them will take leave to take part in the festival.You can keep in touch with the people during these days.


This makeshift Ox structure [representation of vehicle of Lord Shiva - Nandi] made of wood and hay will be dismantled in the next day morning.

Cutting Rubber Trees Using Chainsaw for Firewood

cutting rubber trees
Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has asked every villager to use firewood instead of LPG cylinders for cooking food.He vowed to remove subsidy given to 6 gas cylinders per year to a household.So i obliged him by obeying his advice and uprooted 5 rubber trees near my house. I hired a contractor to do it for Rs 4000.The guys were experienced folks. Four of the trees were standing between two walls.I did not wanted the walls to be destroyed.

However the activity took so much time because of the risk in the four trees to the walls. One of the wall was a two feet high wall to seperate the pathway to the house. Other side was the boundary wall.Still the small wall got damaged. But they repaired it by putting the broken part back to the wall and applying cement grout as glue.

Wonderland

a fool's futile attempt to make a poem.

Wonderland do you exist?
If you do exist, get me out to there
because i want to know how it feels
Passengers have went.
But no one is back.
Are you a dead space or a feeling i get when i peel my skin off.
It is a legend that you ride on a horse
that is dark coloured and with red eyes.
Are you a villian or just a daredevil?
Are you a she or an ET?
Questions?Questions?Questions?More Questions?
Somebody told wonderland is a lie
to make men & women focus....
another neverland!

Yamaha Ray Review

Yamaha Ray 2013
Yamaha as a brand is having a  special place among youths in India for two generations.In the two stroke era of the 1980s, yamaha was an iconic star.In the four stroke era, with its models yamaha captured young minds.Here is a gearless scooter from Yamaha for women.Quality and engine performance of yamaha bikes fares good with indian roads.

Design

The scooter is designed beautifully and is expected to appeal well among the girls and young women.There is a slight similiarity with Honda Dio scooter.Headlight is Vshaped and is located at the centre of the front portion.Two indicator lamps are located just on top of it at the two sides.Instrument Cluster consists of speedometer and fuelguage.It takes up most parts of the space of the central console.So it can be read clearly.Switches and mirror is designed like any other normal scooter.Storage Spaces below the seat and smaller storage space in front and bag hook are the add ons.Seating position is on the lower side.It makes the ride more comfortable however not for the six foot rider because space is small in the front platform mostly because of storage space in front. The storage space under the seat is 15.5 litres.The graphics on Ray is also minimum and feels good and decent.Tail lamp is very cute in clear red colour and indicators on both sides.
Yamaha ray sideview

Engine

Four stroke air cooled 113 cc engine gives 7 bhp power @ 7500 rpm and torque of 8.1 Nm @ 5500 rpm.Engine can be compared to other scooter engines.Some technological improvements have been done for energy efficiency.

yamaha ray scooter

Handling & Performance

Ray is a commuter scooter and not a performance scooter.Something which is comfortable to run around in a city.Cornering can be done at lower speeds.It has good balance on the roads.Eventhough throttle response is not that much encouraging, it offers good performance.Ray is meant for short trips.In short Ray is a good product offered for women.

Arranged Marriages and Love Marriages

marriages
There is a friend of mine.He is a god fearing young man who don't take intoxicants and looks after his family.He also is not known to jump in to any kind of relationships.He is also against the evil system of dowry.He married a beautiful and educated girl.I attended his marriage.His believed that a girl from a family with lesser financial status will blend well with him family and himself.

After an year i learned from him that he had divorced the girl.They had ego issues and main issues was money.The girl wanted all his money and salary to be spend at her parent's home.At one stage she demanded Rs 20000 to be paid every month to her father by this boy.And my friend did not agree to the blackmail.She left him and asked for divorce and later on mutual divorce they split.

I think the main reason for divorces is the misunderstanding between the couple.The relationship goes through a phase of ups and lows.At a moment when it is so low and confidence is 0.0001 percent if a miracle does not happen, it results in a split.Religion and culture influence in the way people marry in a particular society or culture.Those who marry outside the castes are regarded outlaws in many occasion.The positive factor of marrying within a caste is that it is more like that the families will find a horizontal mental plane due to similar practices , life style, traditions etc.The negetive factor is that people become fanatic to the traditions and will do crimes to uphold tradition.It is very awkward to live with a stranger all of a sudden for a lifetime.

Arranged marriages are always arranged after checking astrology compatibility.An astrologer is asked to do mathematical calculation based on a chart prepared according to the birth time. It predicts the future, mental compatibility, ego issues etc.It is so unreliable but elders forces youngsters citing some experiences of the rebels.In an arranged marriage, family reputation, financial status, religion, caste, sub-caste, age, career, education etc are the dominant factors.

Some people use marriages as a tool to suppress people mostly womenfolk and men in remote cases. Women are forced to sit at home and raise children.One of my female friend is not allowed to go to a software job because her hubby a software engineer himself doubts some colleague will 'install love software' in her mind.

Love marriage is marriages conducted after people fell in love with each other.And they enter in to an agreement once they feel they are serious about it.In that case most of the time parents are forced to accept the decision of the people.Some love marriages fail miserably because love fades away over time.

Marriage is a prison.Once you are inside, you cannot get outside so easily if you feel that you want to go out.Then you still continue living in the prison to show the society and the faces looking towards you that you are fine and happy.Kids are the ones who cement every marriages.If the couple have kids,the chance of divorce decreases again.For those who enjoy prison life, they relish living there.My advice to people would be to do not go for a forced arranged marriage or a love marriage that require you to be isolated with yours and your spouse's family.
