Kya Khooya ? Kya Paaya ?

Howdy ! Posting after a very long time…and if you are really close to me you know the reason.

Anyway, coming back to the topic of this post. This new year eve, people around were busy partying, sleeping, making resolutions; and i was pondering on 2 questions about past year, ‘Kya Khoya ? kya paaya ?’ (What have I lost ? and what have I gained ?)

Kya Paaya ?
Spirituality, Relationships, Success, Maturity and most importantly those wonderful experiences that I had in the last year.

Kya Khoya ?
Well, I won’t say i have lost, what appears to have been lost. I would like to think that those things are just differed till a better point of time and I would get those or better of those at some point of time.

Pi Day is official

Today, 14th March or 3/14 as westerners prefer to write the date has been officially declared as the Pi day in US.

Pi is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. And if you have not figured out yet the date 3/14 has the first three digits of the Pi.

I know many people won’t care if Pi or any other mathematical constant gets a day for itself, but I somehow feel it’s cool in a geeky way.

The new meaning of IT

Yesterday, I had a good luck to see Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in person. Bangalore Mirror, organized a function yesterday at the Kanteerva Outdoor stadium. More then 10000 people turned up, and filled the stadium. Sri Sri was calm and inspiring, he has a very interesting meaning for IT: “Inner Transformation”. Later he led everyone to perform Yoga.

A New Day, A New Beginning

This new year I am doing few new things. I bought a vehicle to commute to office which is approximately 4 KMs from my home. I moved into a new apartment this one is lot better then the place I was staying earlier. The place is quite and calm, the house is neat and has more facilities. I also started working on a new venture in my free time, which is very rare as my day job is keeping me too much occupied with a major release due in a months time.

The side project is not too big nor is too technical, but I am sure it would be a good learning experience for me and my friend, with whom I am working on this project. It will give us some insights of user expectations and the way they interact with the interface. It will be a web based utility and I want to do it with DHTML and AJAX to make the interface smooth and cool….that’s when I realized that I suck both in HTML and JavaScript:(. Anyway, I am making some progress and I believe we will be good to go in a months time. That’s much more than my initial estimate…but it’s better late then never….

Happy Days :)
