Welcome Change and 2009!!!!

What a terrifc year 2008 has been with so many ups and downs!!!

But above all raise a toast to say Goodbye 2008.

And, I remember making few resolutions on 1st Jan 2008 …and when I look back today I am happy but not satisfied.

I have been really busy with lot of things both at personal and professional levels. Some of which I will be writing in due course of time.

Whatever happens, Happens for good. So let’s believe whatever happened in 2008 happened for good and we shall see the positive results in 2009.

So let’s welcome 2009 with more confidence, love and smiles.

I wish all you of and your families a very happy and prosperous new year.

A Small Step : PayBack-August 07

Wishing everyone belated Happy Independence Day!!! Proud to be an Indian ūüôā

You must have never heard that a event happens first and then it gets a name <stuck>

Okay, so thats what we did yesterday, on the occasion of 60 years of freedom, we took a small step.

“In software industry, we are used to hear the word reusable stuff. Why not in real life?”

And, thats exactly what we did.

Goal: Collect all the old-reusable, not-so-bad condition clothes which are mostly redundant and distribute them among local people like coblers, fruit-sellers etc etc.

Why the name PayBack?

Its time for all of us to PayBack to Nation, be it in small steps.

Thanks a lot to Ram, Snigdha, Vinayak, Surpiy, Ayan, and Sudarshan for showing interest and willingness to make the difference.

It was great to see that young guns are interested in giving back to society in some or the other form.

We distributed the clothes in the CMH Road, Indiranagar area so if u happen to visit the place, and see a local guy wearing Arrow, Mango or Westside branded clothes, dont get shocked!!!! Instead Just say “PayBack Works”

Then the team went to blind school and distributed the ladies garments to the children there. I had to drop from there soon. So rest story may be Ram or Snigdha can narrate.

Local junta¬†was following us for more stuff, guess last time I saw people following was only politicians ūüôā

My dream; My Vision; My Hunger…..

Imagine a day when TCS will acquire IBM, Ranbaxy takes on AstraZeneca, OpenIndx taking over all management suites, WebStorm beats GigaOM, 7Signs acquires Frog Design studio.

Am I joking??? May B, I am Not!!!

Yesterday while discussing with a old friend of mine, he asked me whats your dream and vision for India?

Then I kept quite. Now, I have the answers for all the questions.

My dream is start Idea Factory, which will generate Next-Gen ideas to transform the lives of common man.

Idea Factory will be a sort of Incubator by Entrepreneurs who will have vision on how to make people’s life simpler and of course better.

My vision for India is to see every graduate student working, be it Arts, Science, Engineering, Medical. IP should be utilized in the service of nation.

Arts graduates are good at written and spoken English, why not they utilize their skills? Science graduates can help in making Bio-informatics a boom for India.

I dont know whether I can fullfill my dreams and vision in one life time, but yes I wont leave any shortening from myside.

I am seriously looking for people, who are motivated and committed to make this world a better place to live. If you dont have any dream/vision, you are welcome to join mine.

We is far powerful word than I or you.

If you happen to be one, please drop me a mail. I will get in touch with you.

Cheers

Week in a Snapshot!!!- Talk Dr.Vint Cerf, OpenIndx Dashboard…

Last few days were seriously busy ones, cudnt even get time to write articles.

Anyways, now I have time, so let me just give you a snapshot of things happened over past few days.

1. Talk by Dr. Vinton Cerf:
Attended talk given by Dr.Vinton Cerf (Engineers, who dont know him, probably you are someone who doesnt know what day is today!!!), He is the co-founder of Internet, along with Dr.Robert Kahn. The talk was a part of Google Speaker series.

Need not to say, the talk was awesome and very motivating. He talked about the past, present and ofcourse the future of Internet and the Apps. He discussed about various of forms of data that Google would be interested in and their baby(Search).

In all a very informative talk, followed by some lingering questions and comments.

<>If the word Surfing(Cerf+ing), came coz of u {Dr.Vint Cerf},
I am the son of Internet, just came to say “Hello Gandpa” </>

2. Worked real hard on OpenIndx project and features.
Last week, was a week for lot of modifications and changes. Yes, the complete architecture has been re-designed in a way that it will be¬†open for API’s.

I preferred to keep it in more or less, a wordpress UI feel. Wordpress UI is very flexible and pleasant for a user. Hence, OpenIndx will have the same UI feel. Cheers!!!!!

 Some more serious changes, that we made is in the Engine layer, where we have added a new Engine for AJAX, which is completely based on Prototype and Rico. So, you people can expect a beautiful UI with powerful features.

A weekend is just few hrs away, so getting geared for some real good work and handsome amout of beautiful time to spend.

Sidney Sheldon Passes Away!!!

Noted author, screenplay writer,magic  storyteller Sidney Sheldon passed away.

He was 89, I am particularly big fan of his novels. Read almost all of his best-sellers.

I bet if you read his autobiography, you can feel what I am feeling right now.

May God rest him in peace.
