Visit to Ram Mandir

Happy ram navami friends. I pray this navami brings you all the joy and success you wish.

Today is ram navami, the day prince ram was born. It’s a big festival for a lot of hindu’s in India.  Since I belong to a Brahmin family, and also being a vaishnavite, this is a big festival for us. But in our family, the intensity of the pomp of celebration of this particular festival has gradually sloped down. So chaturthi and Krishna Janmasthami are the two most important festivals we celebrate.

Irrespective of the pomp being high or low, feast is never compromised. Had amazing lunch today and later visited our temple. It was such a long time since I went to kashi mutt ram mandir! I have literally spent half my childhood there. All those memories came back to me today. I guess I was in 2nd or 3rd standard when I used to go there every Saturday to blow conch during aarthi. I felt my place was so important back then!  And the priest and his assistant showed a lot of affection to me. They used to an extra banana as prasadam. They used to say ‘Look, lord ram is smiling because you came today’. I used to believe that and it made me so happy. I never used to miss going there during childhood.

But later as I grew up, I realized that lord ram’s idol smiled 24×7. There was another small kid who was a conch enthusiast. I gave up my position for him, and saw exactly the same feel of importance on his face that I had. And the priest told the same line to him J

Today, I saw everything has changed. The flooring which was I guess red oxide, is now granite. New glowing walls, paintings of avarats of lord maha Vishnu, lights of different shades, expanded entrance, bars for the devotees to stand in queue. Even the priest is a new guy,lLot more commercial than the old one. But the idol of ram has not changed, it gives the temple, a look of 40’s. no matter what amount of  renovation they bring!

rationalist jokers

I really hate it when some of the self proclaimed rationalists think that religion is the root cause of every problem in the world. They nonsense anything that their peanut brain cant comprehend.

One of such things irritated me today. there is a page in facebook called the GSB Shout page, where there is a guy named narendra nayak, who thinks he is the personification of science and technology, and he also has some of his chela’s in that page who bucket every lump of shit he drops.

I Love Java API’s

I just love them, I really do. Coz I can find any number of them on internet. All you need to do to be a good java professional is, know what your program should do, and look for the appropriate API’s.

I was working on a project involving Optical Character recognition using Neural networks(Ill upload the source code in a while). What actually happens is, an image is given to the system as input, the program must extract the text embedded inside the image(if any!). Well you guessed it right, it’s an IEEE paper. This project would be easy to implement in matlab. But it had to be done in java!

When I was given the white paper, I thought ill never be able to do it, my seniors asked me to somehow try it out. So I started looking for algorithms on the internet and look what I found! An API for neural networks!!! WTF. Half my work is done. Now all that I need to do is, load the image, pre-process it, call the methods in API, get the text and put it on screen.

The Budding JAVA professional

Completing engineering brought a great sense of victory to me. I was a happy man for the first three months since the exams. I enjoyed spending time at home and with friends. I downloaded the latest seasons of big bang theory and how I met your mother, saw it’s every episode at least twice and relished ever moment of it. But the dirty fact of nature is that, no emotions will have the same intensity at different points on the implied time period! Things started changing. I started feeling less happy day by day which brings me to this day, where I’m totally frustrated about the things going around.

Two months ago, I saw the vacations as a great opportunity to upgrade myself and prepare to face the real-virtual world. I signed up for Java classes! Initially it was fun learning the language and things were working well for me. But as time went, the language started getting into my veins. From mere fun, it grew up to become an addiction. Since then, java has been my place of refuge from harmful feelings of joblessness, bitter academic past and boredom. Whenever I felt emotionally low, I turn on my computer to either learn the language deeper or to start coding with it.

I am basically from the electronics background, so these computer languages are new to me. Though java is taking the central position in my mind, I still love electronics and communication as much as I used to, during my days of engineering. I see my future as a java professional striving hard for the betterment of the world through betterment of the language. But since I’m from the background of Electronics and Communication Engineering, I am able to see the world through a larger perspective. Having knowledge in both electronics and computer domain, In ten years from now I see myself handling projects that make real contributions to world , like designing 5th sense devices for the people having disabilities like blindness and deafness.  By 5th sense devices, I don’t mean the devices that exist in today’s market, which offers very little or no help. I want to build multifunctional devices that can do almost all the works that the disabled people would expect from their missing sense.

Views on a blog called Dalit Nation

Hello readers,

This post, unlike rest of the, is a very serious one. So before moving on to the serious part, I would like to say that I am a man with exceptional tranquility of mind, which keeps me cool and always unbiased.
I views I have written is based on what I could comprehend by standing at a neutral point. Hence I’m not representing a particular community here, but im only speaking out my mind.

Despite being born in a Brahmin family, that too in the blood line of the great sage Vishwamitra, I have never been proud of the caste system that is being followed(or should I say had been followed). I have never bothered to find out why it was followed and what parameters were used for discrimination because such discriminations were too far away from my conscious.

But yesterday when I went through a blog in the wordpress called dalit nation, I felt far too ashamed. It was an absolutely senseless content written by a total retard. Some of my friends were passing around that link since the extent of stupidity of that writing turned out to be humor. Here is the link

Assuming that you have read it, you would have already come to know that the writer of that post has nothing to offer to our country, but hatred. They hate the upper cast so much that they had to bring aishwaria rai into the scene and cook story on how the upper cast people tormented her life. I’m very sure that even Aishwaria Rai would be shocked on reading this.

It said,
When Aishwarya Rai joined movies the brahmin and Bania toilet papers like Times of India, Hindu and Indian Express were seething with jealousy. They made claims that she does not know any acting. They always sided with their jatwallah actress like the maharistrian brahmins Madhuri Dixit and Sonali Bendre.

OMG, what have they been smoking? In the very first place, Aishwaria Rai is not a dalit! Secondly, Its not fair to call the national newspapers as bania toilet papers! And who on earth cares for the caste of the girls who work in the movies?

The wily upper caste people in Bollywood tried to set up Aishwarya Rai with the upper caste wallahs. But our Shudra sister Aishwarya never relented. It was during this time when she was harassed by these papans that Salman Khan rescued her. Salman Khan being a muslim wanted to get married to Aishwarya Rai and save her from the oppressive Hindu caste system.

Haha, I have read nothing more stupid than this!

But the upper caste wallahs started spreading all kinds of rumors about Salman Khan. They called him a cocaine addict. These brahmins can go to any length. They will tell what suits their need. Finally they implicated Salman Khan in a fake accident case. They split these two people so that Aishwarya can stay in the evil Hindu caste system. This is what all these upper caste people have been doing to Dalits so that they can never escape from their tyranny.

Harry potter seems more real!

After this incident they did not leave Aishwarya alone. They hatched a conspiracy in UP and got the manuwadi Amar Singh to get Aishwarya married to Abhishek Bachan, a half upper caste sikh and brahmin.

Give me a break!!!

The problem according to me is that its is a political conspiracy to deliberately keep the backward community in dark so that they believe in all the nonsense that the political leaders have to say about the upper cast. The country can progress at a large scale, only when people like these are given education, and enough opportunities to come out of the dark circle they are kept in.

After reading the entire blog, I feel that our country is in a social emergency. The attitude that is being developed in the minds of the youth of the oppressed class due to the blogs like these, is very dangerous and threatening. What is the use of development, if the people cant acknowledge it? The govt and the people of the country have to take immediate steps to counter the backwardness in the minds of these people and bring them to the main stream. Till then, they will keep blaming the upper caste for all the bad that happens in the world!
I promise that once I start earning and become economically stable, I shall take the responsibility of educating at least 2 people of this community and put an end to their economic and social backwardness.

May the country prosper,

Jai Hind

Tasty masala dosa

There are three things that a man cant resist. Games, Tasty food and women. Of the three, the second one appeals to me the most. The inspiration to this post is my mom’s masala dosa, a treat to my taste buds in the very morning. I woke up and asked by mom what the breakfast is, when she said masala dosa, eating them became my top most propriety of the day.

Hailing from the land of masala dosas, the royal city, mysore, they are not any seldom to me. I or any other mysoryrian eat it quite regularly. I eat it like at least twice a week. But still they taste different every time, so the excitement remains alive.

results!!

Hello readers,

Finished the last exam of engineering and the next biggest ‘sleep teaser’ is the result. We were assured by our faculty that the results will be out in 15 days. We thought they were joking, but today, the 15th day after my project external, the exact 15th day, the results are going to be announced! This proves an old fact that professors at canara never joke.

I’ve never been nervous about my result, despite being very uncertain about it. I used to display my cool while rest of my friends were reflecting the shiver playing down in their spine. This reminds me of a scene of the movie 3 idiots, where it was the day of result and the students were trembling with their hands folded, burning down loads ‘aggarbatti’ , bribing god with various offers etc…well, what happens in reality is slightly different from it. Cigarettes are burnt in the place of aggarbattis, the university result page becomes the home page for a while and we start thinking of excuses to give to our parents if the result isn’t so colorful!!

Today is the day of my 8th sem results, I’ve never been so anxious about results all these semesters. Mainly because 8th sem results are generally the aggre making results, so no matter how much I score, its always less. Secondly because my offer to SLK software solutions depends on today’s result. So lets hope for the best to happen. Cheers 

PS: Pray that I wont fall prey to bad luck
