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 …

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 wa…

Health is Wealth

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…

The love of money is the root of all evil

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 i…

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…

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 mous…

New Channels at Reliance BIG TV

Today couple of channels were added on the Reliance BIG TV DTH platform.They were Warner Bros Channel (English movie and general entertainment) and Indiavision news channel (malayalam news).
When they added Colors last time ,you had to buy it seperately.Also despite TRAI's guidelines, they removed UTV Movies, but provided FILMY instead of that.Now WB can be viewed but not indiavision.Don't know whether they would take out WB later. Update:
Here are the other channels that has been added 221 :- Mahuaa Tv. 255 :- Kbs World. 358 :- WB. 420 :- Tv99 Rajasthani. 421 :- VOI. 422 :- India News. 808 :- DD Podhigai. 853 :- NTV NEWS. 871 :- Indiavision 906 :- Star Pravah 925 :- Star Jalsa. 978 :- DD Kashir. 997 :- Test channel 1. 998 :- Test channel 2.

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 …

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.

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…

Google says UPSC website is bad

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 f…

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.

Me, PC Games and an Indian Online Gaming Website

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 …

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 da…

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.

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 generato…

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..

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.…
