There was a time,

When I was sure,

Of what I desire,

Of what I want.


Every single moment, had something new to offer,

Every single moment, made my heart grow fonder,

Every single moment, I had been longing for a life,

Every single moment, the heart knew its right.


Here I stand now,

With uncertainty creeping in,

Here I stand now,

With feelings that go dim.


It isn’t far,

I know it’s there,

It isn’t far,

There is no reason for despair.


There must be something overhanging,

It must have been waiting,

All I need is a little more perseverance,

To keep the fight going,

To keep the fire burning.


Perceptions – Aren’t that obvious

The great question of perception is: “Why do things look the way they do?”

At first the question seems almost silly. We are tempted to answer, “Because things are they way they are.” It would seem that tall things look tall because they are tall. And distant things look distant because they are distant. On the other hand, why does the Moon look larger just above the horizon than it does when it’s overhead? It hasn’t gotten any bigger, or any closer. If a series of disconnected dots are arranged in the pattern of, say, the letter F, it looks like the letter, not a bunch of disconnected dots—which, it actually is. visual images on your retina are upside down.

There are two phenomena – Sensation : the raw data of experience and Perception : the organization and the meaning we give to primitive information. It can be said with some degree of confidence that we use sensory information to create a psychological world. Kurt Koffka (1886–1941), one of the founders of Gestalt psychology, said that there is a distinction between the geographical world and the psychological world. The geographical world is the actual world “out there,” the world as defined and described by physics. The psychological world is the world “in here,” the world as experienced by the subject. Although common sense usually says it’s the so-called “real world” or physical world that determines our behavior, it can be argued that common sense isn’t sufficiently analytical. We generally behave in terms of what we perceive to be true, not necessarily in terms of what is actually true. If ice is thin in the physical world, and it is solid in your psychological world, you are likely to skate on it. And, of course, you may make a serious mistake as a result.

An Insight Into Your Dream Companies

I can bet each one of us has some dream company in mind to work with. So let me share their working style with you in layman’s language with the help of a cow and milk. 😉  Please make note before looking forward to work here. 😛

SONYism –> You have a cow. You spend $50 mn to develop the world’s thinnest milk.

APPLEism –> You have a cow. You sell iMilk.

SAPism –> You don’t have a cow You sell milking solutions for cows implemented by milking consultants.

ORACLEism –> You have a cow. You don’t know which side to milk, so you sell tools tohelp milk cows.

SUNism –> You have a bull. It doesn’t give milk. You hate Microsoft.

MICROSOFTism –> You have a cow. Force the world to buy milk from you. Spend a million dollars to feed poorer cows.

IBMism –> You have old stubborn cows. You sell them as pet dogs to innocent small businessmen.

DELLism –> Intel has a Goat. Samsung has a Camel. Buy milk from both & sell it as Cow’s milk.

WIPROism –> GE has a cow. You take 49% of the milk.

PATNIism –> You have 10 cows. You make them work so that they give milk of 100 cows.

INFOSYSism –> You have a 1000 poor cows. You put them on a nice campus, & send themone at a time to the US for milking.

CITIBANKism –> Welcome to Citibank. If u have a cow, press 1, a bull,press 2.stay on line if you’d like our customer care to milk it for you.

HPism –> You don’t know if what you have is a cow. You sell complete milking solutions through authorised resellers only.

GEism –> You have a donkey. People think you have a 100-year old cow. If someone finds out, that’s his imagination at work.

RELIANCEism –> You don’t yet have a cow. You sell empty cans to people for Rs. 501,because Dhirubhai wanted everyone to have milk.

TATAism –> You have a very old cow. You re-brand it as TATA Indicow.

2012: Movie Review


The wait is over! The movie for which I’m sure all of us were eagerly waiting, has released. The movie is all about The 2012 phenomenon ( the speculative end of the world along with the human race. So the storyline is very much known to everyone. No points for guessing that. 😉
Then what is it for which we should shed our pockets and watch this two and a half hour movie? The answer is the technical excellence that encompasses this piece. Since the start of the movie, it kept me glued to my seat, i didn’t even lose my sight on of the effects.( Except for the time when I was tweeting. 😛 ) I won’t say its a masterpiece but then this is a movie with such technical brilliance, such captivating screenshots and special effects that probably we never witnessed before. Atleast I haven’t! Trust me 2012 even fares better than The Independence day and The Day after Tomorrow in terms of special effects and screen presence. 🙂
The disappointment was the screenplay. Frankly speaking it was nothing different than a bollywood flick where our Dharmendra type HERO is left of any damage or injury and nothing happens to him. In some sequences, it went too overboard to save the hero everytime. It was over. Then about the ending. All the evil guys dying and the good ones saved- I mean the ending wasn’t apt. Logically if the world is about to end, there is no escape from that. I mean I couldn’t figure out why those ships weren’t destroyed even after crashing right into Mt. Everest! I mean what material were they! 😛
Now about the actors. John Cusack and Chiwetel Ejiofor have done a fabulous job in the lead. Apart from them I don’t think anybody had any powerful part to play. Yes to mention those kids were very smart and cute as well. Remember the sequence when John Cusack takes them to the restricted area for the first time. 😉 The direction is the strong point of the movie as well. Hats off to Roland Emmerich for taking this ship to the harbour and he did that pretty well. Didn’t he? 🙂
So the movie deserves a rating of 4 out of 5 from me. A must watch if you are looking forward to some brilliant artwork and special effects! 🙂


Chaos Theory: An Argument for God


A member of today’s modern society could be forgiven if, upon hearing the words “religion” and “science” spoken in the same sentence, they tighten their lips and immediately shuffle their feet nervously. This would, of course, be done to avoid the obvious offense they might cause if they were to continue the conversation because after all, it is common knowledge that these two topics of interest are constantly engaged in warfare with one another. Or so the story appears to go. In fact, there are many ways to approach the religion versus science debate. You can either believe religion fills in what science leaves out, or that science is actually run by God. One may trump the other in your opinion, or perhaps they’re equal. Perhaps they both work together, science answering the “How” questions, and religion answering the “Why”. But theories have arisen that actually find God in science, especially quantum science.Kenneth Miller offers a theory that poses reconciliation between science and religion that utilizes the most modern scientific advances in quantum studies to show that, not only is it possible that God could actively influence the world today via atomic particle’s chaotic motion, but also that human free will can exist in the midst of what is perchance a divine plan.
Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle states that, due to mathematical limits on accuracy, we can never know a particle’s exact momentum and position because as one’s measurement becomes more accurate, the other becomes less so. This creates an inherent element of chaos (in the sense that it appears this way to us) built into the workings of the universe that cannot be fully comprehended. But there is an argument that this chaos might just be the perfect opportunity for God to influence the world via controlling the motions of the particles.Unlike other constructs humanity has created throughout history in order to make sense of the world that science eventually debunks (i.e., a chariot pulling the sun across the sky as in Greek myth), Miller’s theory does not have the potential to fall into the God-of-the-gaps trap or face debunking by the scientific community-no matter how much they may want to. This is due to the fact that the inherent uncertainty in the motion of particles can never be predicted; it’s not just due to lack of technology.Without being able to predict the particle’s motion, there is no way to disprove Miller’s theory that God is influencing these particles. Thus Miller is able to create a theory that cannot be disproven. And with new scientific discoveries being made every day, there’s a good chance that as time progresses, more harmony will prevail and theories arise, than it is for an endless feud to continue on.


HIBERNATE : Relational Persistance for Idiomatic Java


Hibernate is a powerful, high performance object/relational persistence and query service. It works in sync with the SPRING framework.

(More at IBM ) Hibernate lets you develop persistent classes following object-oriented idiom – including association, inheritance, polymorphism, composition, and collections. Hibernate allows you to express queries in its own portable SQL extension (HQL), as well as in native SQL, or with an object-oriented Criteria and Example API.

Hibernate’s primary feature is mapping from Java classes to database tables (and from Java data types to SQL data types). This is accomplished mainly with the help of XML and Java automation. Hibernate also provides data query and retrieval facilities. Hibernate generates the SQL calls and relieves the developer from manual result set handling and object conversion, keeping the application portable to all supported SQL databases, with database portability delivered at very little performance overhead. Though Hibernate is not the best solutions for data centric applications that only uses the stored-procedures to implement the business logic in database; it is most useful with object-oriented domain modes and business logic in the Java-based middle-tier. Hibernate allows transparent persistence that enables the applications to switch any database. Hibernate can be used in Java Swing applications, Java Servlet-based applications, or J2EE applications using EJB session beans.


For .Net the framework modifies itself as NHibernate. It is an Object – relational mapping (ORM) solution that provides a framework for mapping an object-oriented domain model to a traditional relational database. Its purpose is to relieve the developer from a significant portion of relational data persistence-related programming tasks.
