    Indian Education System & Professionals

    Lots have been written about Indian Education System and how it is churning out graduates and post-graduates like a chugging machine with relentless volume. There have been many comments that the education imparted on these institutions are not parallel to what the industry wants. I would almost second that opinion. But certainly the Education System has put in place all that is necessary to gain talent which are required by the graduate or the post-graduate. As a functioning system, there are places which are ignored which ultimately ends in the students getting just a degree and not been imparted the knowledge to get going in the industry. That’s why we…

    The Indian World Cup Triumph!

    Funny how great things get, I believe the feeling hasn’t sunk in yet in me. It was just another day, just another match. I felt goosebumps when India were chasing and Sachin got out. But, still I just hung in there for completion of the match. I didn’t move a lot because of the worry that a wicket might fall. It did fall when something changed, Kohli got out. But after that nothing mattered till the winning runs were scored. I made sure nothing changed. It still hasn’t sunk in. We have seen 1983 images throughout our life-time, that happened when I would have been 4 years old. I have…

    Google’s Way or The High Way

    Google is a very powerful organization. Google is working as the initial source of organic as well as marketed entry point for most of the websites. Google was, is and will use this power to its benefit as well as for the benefit for the millions of websites available in the Internet. Boy even I have visited a website only after searching it via Google rather than remembering the website name (Its been cumbersome to sometimes remember the website domain names, since there are so many). Google still has the power to remove one of the websites from its indexes, throwing all traffic which was generated to this website ‘kaput’.…

    Need not Fear the Cloud

    There is a lot of FUD (Fear, Uncertainty & Doubt) being published on cloud. But as truth goes, its as secure as any other Server put on in the Internet. We have been securing data centers for decades now, hence, to doubt or fear with regards to security of another group of Servers on the Cloud is definitely uncalled for. This doesn’t mean if you put a Server on the cloud, there is nothing to worry about it. This does mean that you have to take the exact same precautions as you would do if you put one of your systems inside your internal network to be connected from anywhere across the internet.…

    Know when to Teach & when to Coach

    What’s the difference I say ? This is the difference, http://www.cricinfo.com/magazine/content/story/458649.html Teaching is informing the student about a fact and making him learn the fact. Coaching is letting him figure out what could be it ! When you teach, you actually list out what is known. For example, we tell the student that there is one Sun and 9(err, may be less) planets in the Solar system. Coaching is providing a few facts and letting him figure out how such facts were arrived at and what was the reasoning. Really, only if a student carries out a practical chemical experiment does he now that Iron when exposed to atmosphere rusts because…

    Teaching Children is Education for the Parents

    I have noticed that India is the only country which treats son/daughter as children even after they have grown up, got married and have children of their own. We as parents think it is necessary to support our offspring till the ability of us to do so. This inculcates a sense of dependency on the offspring which is often very difficult when they are unable to take care of themselves. Parents are the ones creating such situation by providing all the support they can give. So in a sense letting go the children to grow up on their own and make their own destiny as done in most other countries…

    It’s just Inevitable, How to stop Phishing Scams for Internet Banking Sites ?

    I saw that previously DNS Gurus tried to sell *.porn websites to all porn businesses, which will make it easier for, Parental Control of Porn sites (using firewall, net nanny or whatever) Provide Adult Content filtering on the ISP level similar to Adult content filtering in Cable/DTH transmissions, But the websites were worried about losing business and thus this remained unabashedly public on every system connected with the internet. Disclaimer: I am not questioning the decision or going to be worried about the content in the public stream. I always want the internet to be open and free to publish whatever wherever you want it to be published. But the…

    Reach the Potential

    I am a person who believes in destiny, potential, paybacks and freakier things than I am about to discuss. Each and every person has a purpose in life. Whether he/she has a purpose or not is for the individual to decide, but I do believe when they trust it, they just are one more step closer to achieving it. Why is it necessary to reach your Potential? I have always felt someone who has potential as we see it, but, don’t use it as a bigger sinner than the one who tries and fails. Maybe the person doesn’t know or understand his/her potential. In that case, if we don’t assist…

    Just a small wish

    This is like that small wish where I want to get the Aladdin’s lamp and that’s it, I don’t need anything else kinda stuff. So if you are offended by such senti, buzz off. If you do want in, may be what I wish for is not for you (not yet for sure). Wish, eventhough small, always provides a kinda of feeling inwhich we believe we will get it eventually. Sometimes our wishes are out of the world (like Aladdin’s lamp) which are sure not in that list. But sometimes we feel what about if it happens and we are thrown out of gear. It is unusual, against the grain,…
