Freedom struggle (in digital world)

While reading some stuff on data compression i came across an advt which says "coding is not a crime" i clicked the link and landed up with an interesting site called EFF


yes its true, we are slowly landing into a digital slavery.. with so many constraints to use the BITS. I liked the message of this site. yes we might need to have a freedom struggle for our digital rights.

Do you agree with me?

few things about me

1. some times i buy dates and eat them, And i am frequent to fruits and Juice.

2. still i buy dosa mix and eat dosa often

3. i stopped alcohol more than a year ago

4. I am driving bike better now.

5. I am striving my level best to make my family comfortable.at the same time i dont loose any of my freedom in my personal life.

6. My house construction in the village is about for completion(with the latest citi bank loan)

7. I am trying to update my technical skills to pursue my PhD in software security after few years.

8. I am learning tech stuff on a continuous basis.

9. Lost control in office in some occassions when other person is behaving weird or stupid and trying to put me down, and had bad feedback about my attitude. But now i am dealing the same things in better way. Its a good learning for me. I dont need to get upset when somebody else does. If i get angry i am ruining myself. If other person does, i dont need to do anything becuase he is harming himself.

10.Similar things in personal life, thought i wished my friends in some way, but it turned very much negative. I understand i dont have any right on any body's personal life, even it means ruining of their character. What i could do is that i dont encourage or participate in any activity which could hurt any of my friend potentially.

11. I am taking care of my health in better way, like following Dr Batra's treatment and keeping myself clean and healthy with good food. My hair needed attention becuase of the dandruff problem.

Republic day

Today is the republic day of India. Something interesting to refresh our thoughts about slavery under british and the struggle for the freedom.

This is needed, because the relativity of freedom and slavery makes us understand how fortunate we are, with the individual liberty we get in our country.

Time

Merciless Time


Time is like a merci less beauty. as long as its there, we can feel the comfort. but when we run short of it, it kills you without giving options.

Am i using time efficiently?

silence

God give me energy and patience to keep quiet. Some how or the other way i am pulled into troubles by some people. I know they want to test my energies and patience, once i burst, they will make it an issue, and get me shunting. What can i do? other than keeping quiet, and wait for the troubles to go down?. I just want patience to go through the situations and make a life time experience.

గమ్యం

అనిపిస్తుంది ఓక్కొ సారి అనుకున్నది సాదించగలనా లెదా అని. కాని అనుక్శనం సాగే ప్ర్యత్నం ఖఛితంగా గెలుపును ఇస్తున్ది. జీవితం అనేది చివరి క్షనం వరకు సాగే యుధం లాన్టిది. ఛాలా వరకు గెలిచామా ఓడామా అనెది కాదు ముఖ్యం, కాని ఎలా పోరాడామనేది ముఖ్యం. అనుకున్నది సాదించలెకపొయినప్పట్టికి ఈ ప్రయత్నం లో మరెన్నొ అద్భుతాల్ని సాదిన్చి తీరుతాం. ప్రయత్నం గట్టిగా ఉన్డి గమ్యం వైపు సాగె ప్రయానం అన్ని అడ్డంకులని ఎడుర్కున్టుంది

bond of trust

A little girl and her father were crossing a bridge.

The father was kind of scared so he asked his little daughter,

"Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don't fall into the river." The little girl said, "No, Dad. You hold my hand."

"What's the difference?" Asked the puzzled father.



"There's a big difference," replied the little girl. "If I hold your hand and something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go. But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens, you will never let my hand go."



In any relationship, the essence of trust is not in its bind, but in its bond. So hold the hand of the person whom you love rather than expecting them to hold urs...

Indian Deviation

new analysis of births in India finds that about 10 million female fetuses may have been aborted over the past two decades. Sexual selection is illegal in India, but the practice continues anyway.

Fewer girls than boys are born in India. A study published in the journal Lancet says the cause is undoubtedly prenatal sex determination using ultrasound technology, followed by abortion of female fetuses.

First Mistake of the year

Yesterday was a great achievement. today's special is that i lost control over myself, when a guy behaved weirdly with me. I could have controlled myself, though I was right.

Good work

When boss asked me last friday, i told him, yes for this friday for finishing the PDF form filling task. Now i have done most of the work, though still one more day is there. I placed lots of my efforts (was thinking one full night(almost)), on the design and the application flow. Then took the feedback from collegues in the office and made improvements.

When i started coding, i felt the implementation, will make me slip my word (the friday deadline). But then some how i followed the design,and made the implementation.

I am happy about this particular task, finishing a task in few days of time. Ofcourse one of my collegue has worked on similar task last few months. So I am not that new to the task. Good thing is that i did all the coding myself (almost). Didnt use old code etc..

Ofcourse the work is done in 2005 and 2006 (2 years is too much of time isnt it :-) )

Nice to see my first task of the year, getting a closing status.

Good work, I am on time (As I am, most of the time :-) ).

What will i be?

I have been working (infact overworking) for the last 10 days or so. Even tired very much but I want to finish the task that i am handling right now.



Dinesh was showing me tarot. Intersting site.when i post questions like what will i be? etc. it is giving me very interesting predictions.

Four stages of life

Hindus divided the life into four stages also called ashramas. Life in this body is estimated as 100 years. Isa Upanishad says, Jijivet shatam shama. - one can have a strong and healthy life for hundred years.

First stage, brahmacharya, first twenty-five years is spent for study, with discipline and self-control. In modern times, study is a life long process with continuing education, board certifications etc.

In the stage of gruhastha, the second twenty-five years one enters the world to work, have family life and to bring excellence to the family and society. Gruhastashrama is considered the foundation of the society, as it is responsible for the other three stages with children going through brahmacharya, parents entering vanaprastha and the sannyasis who have given up the world to teach humanity. With late marriages, divorces and remarriages, there is now a blurred period of gruhastha.

The third twenty-five years as vanaprastha were spent in service to humanity – the children are now grown up and you have less responsibility and you can do more social and charitable work. When does this period really start and end? It is not practical as in ancient times for the seniors to go away into forests and lead the life of vanaprastha. It is in fact a continuum of service to the humanity when you are able and willing. There are youngsters who volunteer to serve in the hospitals, elder homes, and community centers when they are still in school. There are many with families, who spend a lot of time in the service of the community. We see many renunciates, leading the life of a sanyasa, yet serving the community with their spiritual teachings.

However, the people in the vanaprastha period are the most suitable to act as a strong support to the young, the married and to the renunciates. They have the experience and knowledge of the world and the wisdom. They can provide the physical and emotional support to the youngsters. Their needs, generally by this stage should have been reduced and they are self-contented. Any work would be done in the name of God without expectations of name and fame. This is their time to pay back to the society.

The remaining twenty-five years should be spent as sanyasa in contemplation and meditation so that the final exit will be peaceful and loving.

Let us take a moment to evaluate what stage we are in. Are we doing our share?

What does this mean?




I felt embarrassed, isnt it communal harrassment? They might have had great creativity, but I didnt like the advt.

Dont worry Be happy

Don't worry be happy. This sounds such a simplistic phrase, but there is great power and wisdom in it.

Worry blocks our thinking, narrows our options and limits us. Being happy increases our creativity and problem solving skills. It increases our energy, motivation and our abilities.

Don’t worry, be happy tells us to focus on what we want rather than what we don’t want. When we focus on what we want our actions take us nearer to our goals.

When we focus on what we don’t want we move away from what we don’t want. But not necessarily in the direction that we want to go in. Out of the fire and into the frying pan.

Good Morning

Today interestingly I got up early (by 7 AM) then went for walking and got ready and in office by 9.30AM. This is something which wont happen that often.

There seems some omens which asks me to be careful today about my activities and words. I need to heed to this. I wish i could finish all my tasks pending for the day.

Let me see whatz going to happen!.

The new year

Hmm, the new year went well for me. I went to bed around 10.30 PM on 31st night. Was thinking of happenings in life, personal, family and the society.

I felt everything is happening as it is supposted to. some bad, some good and some ugly :-).

The change in me is that I wore a kurta. Took some decisions, which i want to implement now on.

some of them are:
1. Listen to the other person carefully and fully.(I started doing it starting with a altercation with mahesh,my roomie in the morning. I was requesting him something, he took it too personally and did a great job in digging the history, he reminded me that he has crores of property and he doesnt even need to work etc.and went on using some slang. But then I didnt get upset at all. I conveyed him what i wanted to and i listened to him and understood that he didnt listen what i was trying to say)

2. Think..
To think before i say anything or i shoot any mails. I have been doing this for the last few weeks.. some times i do type mails to people but then instead of send i click compose again or make that as draft.

3.Trusting the self.
hmm i do need some self appreciation. I believe i can do more than i am doing right now.

4. Stay away from liquer etc, As i have been.

5. If i get 'suitable gal' i want to get marry.

6. Meet the deadlines - I want to carry this particular characteristic into the coming years too.

7. Honor friends.. Understand them even if they dont understand. There is no meaning if i dont wait for them, when they r busy with other friends. I cant expect that my friend should be with me all the d time.

8.Remember people who helped me..I want ot remember all the poeple who are helping me all the way in the life.

9. Love, care and appreciation - showing affection towards the 'Other Person' will get the same thing back to me. so I want to make it a custom to appreciate all good things and share a bit of care and love to all the people i know.
