Couple of Orangis Online related Ashram Visits

Running Orangis Online requires me to visit reputed organisations. So i decided to meet the person in the administration of Ramakrishna Math which was founded by Swamy Vivekananda. The person who claim to be a Sannyasin managing the Matham is very arrogant. He was pouncing upon me as if i was an enemy. He was not at all ready to hear my proposal.

This Monday i visited another Ashram, a growing one headed by a Sanyasin in his youth. It is believed to be an offshoot of Sivagiri Ashram, Varkala founded by Sree Naryana Guru.Sree Narayan Viswa Dharma Math is headed by Swami Shivabodhananda.Contrast to my experience at Ramakrishna Mission, this person is so warm and cordial.He showed me the ashram, temple, conference room under construction and the home theatre due to inauguration.

The home theatre room is superb.I asked him ,"What is the use of a movie theatre in an ashram, after all vidhi (direction from scriptures & shastras) for brahmacharis and sanyasis is to avoid wordly pleasure?".

He said it would be used to show movies to young boys, videos of spiritual discourses and for running powerpoint presentations for learning.

Today i found a newspiece on the inauguration of the said home theatre.

BSNL 3G Wireless Broadband Speed Test

Ever since 3G service started in the airspace over my office, i took one connection from BSNL. I had a huawei modem with me with name Idea Netsetter written all over it.It was a SIM killer. If i put a different SIM other than the one they gave with the idea data connection, this device had the ability to render the SIM useless. I sacrificed a Tata Docomo SIM to learn that.I got that 'Netsetter' hacked or reprogrammed with a technician to get a universal USB dongle with Mobile Partner software that could use any SIM.

Enough of small talk,these are the results

Device Speed: Max 7.2 Mbps
Device: Huawei High Speed WCDMA/ EDGE/GPRS compatible USB modem
Tower: WCDMA BSNL MOBILE - PARA JUNCTION / NOORANAD
