Make It Special

January 10, 2012 at 3:33 AM (New Year, Non Technical)

Its was dec 31st , I was thinking to update my blog which I have planned long back. I was about to post but I couldn’t do it that day, you may get the reason at the end of this article. I was just thinking what I did in this year ? Did I achieve some thing ? Did I work  to reach my goal, my dream ? How I spent this whole year?.  Many questions were eating my head. I am happy because I did something for this year, I am heading towards my goal. Today I sat and I was thinking about the future , upcoming wonderful year. I was going through  facebook, I was able to see many advance wishes , people were inviting their friends for party, get together etc. That is really cool .

I went outside in the morning for breakfast , I was observing every one , the hotel owner where I use to have breakfast daily, the shopkeeper where I use to buy my daily needs, I was asking every one , how you will going to celebrate ? they were giving all common answers, ” en celebration sir ? ellaa haage, pratee varsha iddadde ala ” .  Yes a common man should say like that, he can not make a big party, he can not take a leave and go somewhere with family to celebrate , because his one day profit means a lot for him.

That is not the case with software engineers! , I saw people and their living style , So much expensive  life style, they never use to talk in Kannada with their kids , that kind of status they are maintaining. Their life is colorful in their own way, these IT industries are attracting people . Most of the student after PUC will think to become an engineer or doctor . Yes there are few people who will say they will become an astronaut and something else. In reality once they complete their PUC , most of them will join a BE college.

Well that is their living style, as a software engineer will earn enough and will spend enough but when I sit and think what we are doing in software company ? my mind will fall in a puzzle . Are we doing anything great here ? are we really achieving something new here ? are we forgetting our society due to such living style? does our education system changed ? whether we are getting a quality education in all the sectors ? what is happening in our public government sectors ? . People became so much busy in their life that, they not even have time to think over it.

We can see many innovations in our day today life , but most of the time it will be from some other country. I am not saying Indians are doing nothing , but I am saying it is lesser compared to others. If we take software companies only, why India is still not able to give a big software company like Google, Apple, Microsoft, IBM ? , I will not give answer for this, think over it.

Last time when I did visit bangalooru , my main purpose was to take part in protest against corruption in freedom park, surprisingly only one of my friend came and joined me . Guys this is a serious matter to think ,  ok not every one is same, there are many people who took part in protest , I appreciate  but over all what happened is we software engineers have time to attend meeting , just to discuss what problem the client is facing ! but we don’t have time to think about the problems what our society is facing. Every one say, ” I hate politics “, please think once again what you are telling ! we not even spend some time to analyse what the government done so far? we have time to enjoy the party with friends , but we don’t have time to discuss such matters with friends . In my home town if I go outside in the evening , aged people will be having a discussion in temples, gardens , our young generation are busy in smoking, party and some other palthu works .

Just think yourself , whether we ever tried to guide our juniors ? how they suppose to study ? how they suppose to build up their career ? . Whether we did show them any other platform other than BE ? , whether we tell them to go for MSc physics , chemistry, maths and any other ? .  I usually discuss some physics stuff with one of my junior sister who is studying Nuclear physics in Msc , she is facing so much problem in her education, she has many ideas but she don’t have necessary things with her, this is what happening in our education  system other than BE . Can’t we sit and spend some time to think over such problems ? and try to find solutions? We will be very enthusiastic when we do meeting for a client , but why that enthusiasm will miss when such things come in mind?. I wish recession should not come , and think over it, if it happens none of the software company will dare to take different step. Still why we are so much dependent ?, is there any other way so that recession does not affect to us. Do we have our own idea ? so that when client does not come to us and we start working on our own idea? No not at all , many people will lose their job. I wish it should not happen and let this new year will be a colorful for every one.

Keeping all such things in our mind, what if , we set up a goal and try to find a better way of  living ? I am not blaming software companies, but I am telling along with working for only clients problems , why can’t we work and find solution to our own problems?

Analyse the problems that our country is facing, why research oriented stuffs are not booming ? How can we improve our education quality , our government sectors , there are many more.

So new year came, let us start a new way of living , let us set up some useful goals and try to achieve them. We will make this year special and colorful. I thought to give a message to every one for this new year and wrote what I was thinking. Things are not so easy as it is to discuss, but we should try at least from our end !

December 23, 2009 at 5:46 PM (New Year, Non Technical)

First of all Happy New Year to all, again we all are waiting for new year, new fun, dreams, etc etc.When December month comes I start to think What did I do in this year? and What to do in next year?. Not a complete plan but I will just spend few hours to think over that while travelling, sitting alone somewhere. This time I thought of writing blog on the topic LIFE. I decided to write whatever comes in my mind by reminding few of the events that I come across in my life.

What is Life?

I am not a great philosopher to define the meaning of Life, but after searching a lot about this I find one beautiful definition for Life : ” ALL LOVE IS LIFE, ALL SELFISHNESS IS DEATH“. This is very simple but powerful definition of life given by Swami Vivekananda.

How can we make this life beautiful? I will write my own points regarding  this, and till now I enjoyed my Life, I am able to put colours in my Life, of course this is not the final, everybody has their own views, but sometimes some people fail to make it beautiful. I always follow the following things in my life, which made me to feel happy always.

1> Satisfaction:

I believe this is the most important thing that is required for wonderful life, we should be satisfied by whatever we have right now, of course we should aim for high, but it should be to achieve something, nothing else.

2> Better Understanding:

Have better understanding with your friends and family. Never take decisions when you are angry, better try to avoid this anger, because this is the one which spoils the relationship. Again Swami Vivekananda said, ” In a controversy the instant we feel angry we have already ceased striving for the truth”. So keep yourself always calm, give enough time to mind to think, never allow it to take decisions in anger.

3> Say Good Bye to bad habits:

Please keep yourself away from bad habits, never cultivate smoking, drinking in your life. It will spoil your health.

“Health is the greatest gift of God, Contentment is the greatest wealth, faithfulness is the best relationship”.

4> Forgiveness:

“To forgive is the highest, most beautiful form of love, in return, you will receive untold peace and happiness”.

Everybody will commit mistakes either knowingly or unknowingly, but the other person should have an open heart to forgive, simultaneously never put back yourself to say SORRY when you will do mistakes. Sometimes you may face the situation in which you suppose to say sorry even though you did nothing wrong, its ok say sorry and you are telling in front of your friend, to whom you treat as your own so no hesitation, just say sorry and just forgive when your friend say sorry.

Open your arms to hug your close one, when they will do mistakes and will say sorry, it gives great contentment.

5> Enjoyment:

Yes some sort of enjoyment is essential for this life to make this mind fresh. I am not talking about the enjoyment like smoking, drinking , visiting pub, bar etc.

Common guys open your eyes look into this beautiful world , enjoy yourself with your friends, visit some good places, listen to the music, enjoy the beauty of this green, ocean, which will relax your mind and give happiness.

6> Learn something from bad:

This is one of the most important step that we should take in this life, it is common that we face some bad moments in our life, but try to learn something from those bad moments, think that we still have to try to become perfect. Why I am telling this is , I saw so many of my friends who spoiled their life by taking bad decisions when they are in bad time. They start bad habits, lose their patience which should never happen. So analyse the bad time and try to learn something good from the bad.

So finally once again Happy New Year to you all, enjoy the life, be happy always, all the best.

A Message for New Year

February 8, 2009 at 11:41 AM (New Year)

Dear all first of all I Wish You Happy New Year – 2009″.
Again new year comes, the world started to dream over the future, so many new expectations, new ideas, new thoughts,new adventures, new inventions are waiting for this new year.
I don’t want to remind you the worst situations that we come across in the last year, but instead let me smell the future and hence later we can taste it as a present, so let me discuss what are
the key challenges that we have to catch in our hands in this new year.
Every one knows that the world is facing terrorism, According to me, we first have to destroy the terrorism from the root, of course we have to build our country in the area of technology, education, economy and so many, but for all such achievements terrorism is the obstacle, so let us plan properly to remove it from the root.
Ha before that we should take care to thank and pray for those who have defended our nation throughout the year – our soldiers, airman, guardsmen and marines. we have to plan to secure a future of peace for mankind, for that it is required a sustained commitment from all of us.
If we succeed to stop terrorism it would be the great achievement in this new year and it will be possible only when every one work over that, every one has to understand his responsibility and every one has to fulfil it.
OK next come to the point of economy,the world’s economic condition is touching the worst condition, we have to take a step over it, this will be the next achievement and every one knows how much important it is, its a financial matter so it will be very important, is it not??? . Although the electronics industry frequently traverses its own peaks and valleys, its journey is still linked to the overall global economy. As the global economy downshifts from its current growth, it will influence the electronics industry in a variety of ways, as we are software engineers we have to work hard to overcome from that.
Arre we discussed about social, financial matters but we are science students, we forgot to discuss about science,so come to the point , let me discuss some thing new, Astronomy?? Most of us are software engineers but forget the software for a while…
NASA already found water over the surface of Mars, then what next?? ya in 2009, why can’t we try to move beyond the Milky Way? hmmm this is very difficult task and for some extent it is not possible also, you might know that to achieve this we have to travel at the speed of light, yes only 299,729,458 m/s. Ufff is it too much???… several scientists say it is not possible but we have to aim for high, I think
NASA still trying to achieve it.
So finally A message to this world for the New Year, from my side,
” Take the current conditions as challenge for us, Aim for high, work over that direction to reach the peak, Give more and more innovative thoughts to the world and make this 2009 successful”.
OK we all planned for new ideas for this new year, Aren’t you?? but how can i forget the one who gives energy to achieve all these, yes let me pray at god so that he support us to achieve all these and pray for a peaceful future for all of us.
Dear all you might be thinking why I discussed some non related topics like Astronomy! ya my intention is to give a message that inspire all of us to aim for high, I said NASA might try to go beyond the Milky Way which is not possible for some extend but i think still the NASA finding some other way to achieve this, so we all have to try to do some innovative works( some thing new, right!!).
Specially for my juniors, who will enter into corporate life soon, this is the right time for you people to think about your future, achieve something new in your chosen area of technology. I always try to tell something to my juniors, because i believe the words said by Swami Vivekananda, that is Youth are backbone of the country and are leaders of the tomorrow. so All the best to them.
Finally I would like to end up with some Quotations given by the
Great person Swami Vivekananda, that will inspire you to do such works.
A nice Quote on Success.
“Take up one idea, make one idea your life, think of it, dream of it, live on the idea Let the brain, muscles, nerves every part of your body be full of that idea and just leave every day other idea alone this is the way to success.”
“We are responsible for what we are,
and whatever we wish ourselves to be.
we have the power to make ourselves,
If what we are now has been the result of our own past actions,
It certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be
produced by our present actions so we have to know how to act.”
So try to become a WINNER in this new year, ha again i remembered one more quote when i used the word winner, that is,
A Winner,
New bridges to cross, New goals to meet and New memories to be made , Happy New Year and All the best to all…
