Mahendra Singh Dhoni – Captain of Indian Cricket Team. How many of us remember Dravid and Kumble as successful Indian Captains? Who all remember the Indian wicket keepers who came after Mongia? Do you remember a six hitting Batsman in Indian Cricket other than Ganguly and Kapil Dev? Many of us don’t – That’s the answer. A 23 year old boy from Jharkhand has become a asset for Indian cricket very soon after he joined the Team in 2004. (more…)

Let’s go back to the school days

my schoolI stood beside the old black painted Iron Gate. The wind was blowing gently as if it’s playing the background music of my old school days. I remembered the times we used to run our fingers through the gate grills while waiting for our parents. Long time ago we were labeled as a student of this school. It’s the place that laid the foundation of my present and future. The one which taught me to be good, do good and what’s good. Years back in 2004 I left my school as a proud student, but still it’s a special feeling when I pass nearby my school. Let’s go back to the days; we think we have lost… The time we loved to and used to enjoy rain without umbrellas!!!

Math puzzles

think first before going in search of formulas

Mathematic puzzles

When we get a math puzzle, what’s the first thing we do?
We lose ourselves in search of formulas, logarithms etc. but we should know that most of the mathematical puzzles are based on simple logic which doesn’t need any complex formula or equation. We should think like an LP school child. There’s no need to think too much at the beginning itself.
Every puzzle demands mainly 3 steps:

  1. Analyze the puzzle and understand it.
  2. Use our logic.
  3. Think wisely.

Funny facts about facebook
Here are some funny facts that I/we used to see in Facebook:-
  1. Why Facebook shows an option to unlike the very next moment I like something.
  2. Why in 10 days a boy’s photo gets 10 likes and a girl’s photo gets 100 likes in 1 minute?
  3. Why do we need an option to like sad/bad news?
  4. Why Facebook keep on suggesting unknown beautiful girls with 0 mutual friends again and again? (to check whether I’ll send any friend request?? )
  5. Why do I have an option to like my own post, since it’s always gonna be something I like to post or share?
  6. If nothing happens much in Facebook other than friends’ updates, then why people are 24/7 online?
  7. Why some people have 2 Facebook accounts – 1 good & clean and the other 1 bad & naughty!

Please keep waiting...

Please keep waiting…

Waiting – the word with lots of meanings,
different feelings;

Sometimes bad, sometimes good;
but most often expecting the good.

Sometimes controlled by time,
And sometimes by nature.

Loneliness doubles its length,
And group reduces it to half or nullifies it.

programmer’s blogging style

How a programmer blogs?

From my blog’s name itself you can understand that I’m a programmer (TYPO3 – is php CMS). The following some common mannerisms in my blogging style and a few that I guess other programmers might have in their blogging (not about the posts containing code, but about writings):

  • At the top he’ll tell us what all information he’s going to share just like declaring classes, functions and variables.
  • There will be lots of if-else ladders. If we’re gonna do this then this will happen, otherwise this!
  • Bullet lists or ordered lists like switch condition cases.
  • Links referencing previous blog links or what he has said earlier – function calls.
  • Chances of including others’ ideas is more – plagiarized or not plagiarized, as a programmer always have a tendency to google!
  • (more…)

Think about the worst case before taking risk!

Are you about to take a risk, think 100 times before you act!
If you win or you’re right, then you’ll get lots of applause and appreciations. You’ll be pictured as a Hero.
If you lose or you fail, then you’ll be always remembered in the name of that bad decision. Even if you do many great things after that, the discussion starts like:”Yeah, it was really good, but long time ago he is the one who ….“. It’s human nature – majority belong to it. One negative can overshadow many positives!

Positive x Positive = Positive

Negative x Positive = Negative
Positive x Negative = Negative
-(1) x 1000 = -(1000)

See how 1 negative can fade 1000 positives :twisted:.

Negative x Negative = Positive.
Oops 😳!! Sometimes that happens, hope you’ve heard about the stories of Emperor Ashoka and Alexander.

Are you a photographer?

Are you a photographer ❓

If yes, then please go through the below list and let me know your comments and suggestions:

  1. Your photo should tell your skill, not your camera’s.
  2. See the beauty around you before going in search of beauty.
  3. Always try a new different angle – don’t shoot on common man’s angle.
  4. Practice yourself and get inspired by others’ photos.
  5. Make sure that your photos don’t hurt others.
  6. Know your talent – instead of working on weak areas and master your own style.
  7. Share your photos and get feedback (don’t forget to copyright).
  8. A photographer’s success lies highly on his creativity.
  9. Don’t make your photos bring photoshop to one’s mind, just frame things as they are…


best comments in source code

Are you a good programmer?
Do you write comments in your source code?
If you don’t, then please write comments from today onwards…

Importance of comments in source code

  1. It’ll be easy for debuggers.
  2. Beginners can understand your logic.
  3. May help you for future modifications.
  4. Comments can tell a non-programmer the purpose of your code.
