Evidence of the “4.0” era—an always-on world where humans can “self-upgrade” through technology extensions—is already dawning and is being driven by the youngest generation.

Microtrend Analyst Says Technology ‘4.0’ Era Is upon Us

Though this looks like a great innovation, aren’t we avoiding the real life? What would be the meaning of life for future generations. Its just gadgets! This is such a bad idea.

Rabin-Karp string search algorithm – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I was looking at the Rabin-Karp string search algorithm. How simple he has solved the time complexity of this problem. I really like this solution. Hashing helps us in so many ways:) Long live algos.

I am writing this from the live writer. This is becoming really interesting to blog. The only hitch that i have now is that, the WordPress  themes do not jewel well into the writer. So I am using the Normal view to blog into the wordpress.

This looks very interesting though 🙂

How should a society be? September 16, 2007

A society is a group of individuals that live together in the proximity. If we consider the radius of the society to be very huge, its the whole world, little lesser its our Country, even lesser, its our state, even lesser its our city, even lesser its our area, even lesser, its our apartment, even lesser its our family, even lesser its us (its me or you rather).

To change the society to, what you want it to be, first you or me should change.  Change yourself to what you want the ideal society, you want to belong. You would slowly start influencing others thoughts by your action.  As people around you start recognising your values and start trusting you, they would try to emulate you and the chain reaction happens.

So my dear Man/Women, try to follow your values, make them a habit:

So lets have a discussion to identify what could be values that would be great to have, one of the main crieteria is that the value should not just appy to me or to you ;

A value or a good habit is one which would satisfy the following basic set of preconditions:

1. It should never hurt anyone. [Hurt : Not just hurt any one physically, but never in any form, phycological or emotional, or in any form]

2. It should help improve the people starting from you. Greater the value of your values if it can cover a greater radius. (Start from you, your family, neighbours,whole apartment,like that).

3. The value should be a habit. A habit is a consistent perseverance of a value for atleast 1year.

If we satisfy these three condition and could identify a value that is great. Always start off with a small value that you would keep close to the heart. If your value becomes in anyway any irritation to others, its no more a value, you need to change it. Keep refinining your value.

Keep your values first simple and easy. 

One value i am planning to follow:

1. Measure twice; Speak Once;

My reasoning: 

You cannot take back a word that you just spoke; its spoken and gone. So speak measurably and sensibly.

Trust me, our words have great power. The power of our words are tremendrous; We are not allowed to realize.

Try this value, Try measuring your words before you speak to anyone and speak only those required words. Initially it would be tough. But once you get into that practice, you would soon see the amount of respect your words demand.

Values that always took uturn for convenience…. August 16, 2007

  • He declared Indian independence as a day of slavery and declared it as a day of mourning. He fought for the separation of Tamil areas of India and Sri Lanka and for the human rights of the oppressed Tamil diaspora. He backed colonial rule and attempted to forge an alliance with both Ambedkar and Jinnah.
  • His comment on Tamil as a “language of barbarians” haunted him later in life. He was a strong proponent of embracing English as the global language and dropping Tamil from academics. To this day, his followers choose to ignore discussions on this topic.
  • Early in his political life, he had derided Tirukkural and an anachronism and a tool for Aryan aggrandisement. At a later point, he embraced it as the true guide and insisted it was a common guide for all religions. When prominent Muslims spoke out and commented that a man-made work, Tirukkural can never equal God-given verses (Qur’an), and his rationalist thought observed silence.
  • Guess who is this great personality whose only ambition is his sadistic pleasure in taking revenge against brahmins. He entered politics to quench his individual hatred against brahmins.

    Guess who is this great leader who lived his values….  only that his values keeps taking complete uturns for his convenience… but still he was living his values… 🙂

    He never believed in Gods… errr… sorry only Hindu gods… he never had a back bone to say to Muslims that their God doesnt exist as per his theory…. 🙂 A man who lived his values…

    At the age of 70 marrying a 18year old girl was a right thing for him! How great his values were….

     Now find what is his name….

    He is popularly called Periyar… Mr EV Ramasamy Naiker…. (Naiker is a caste name!!).

    Mataram
    The Mother!

    Shubhrajyothsna pulakitayaminim
    Her nights rejoicing in the glory of the moonlight
    Phullakusumita dramadala shobinim
    her lands clothed beautifully with her trees in flowering bloom
    Suhasinim sumadhura bhashinim
    sweet of laughter, sweet of speech
    Sukhadam varadam mataram
    giver of bliss, giver of boons, the Mother
    Vande mataram
    I bow to thee, Mother.

    Begin with the End in the Mind, But what is the end? July 5, 2007

    What is the reason for our Birth? Is there a purpose that we are serving in this earth? What happens when we die? These are the basic questions that ponders everyone’s mind when they think of Life 🙂

    Before even getting into that, we need to know who we are!. I was thinking about who am I? I could come up with different attributes that i have, but i couldnt come up with a complete fully satisfactory answer!

    Some of the answers that we can think of is:

    1.I am my name (Uh.. not i am not just my name its just an identification!!)

    2. I am son of Mr… (oopss. this is just the relationship that i am mentioniong not me!)

    3. I am a Software Engineer (!!! part of my identity.. not me…).

    4. I am the aggregate of all the attributes mentioned above and more! ( No way.. i am not just my attributes!!).

    So who am i? Who are you?

    Could I say I am my feelings? I am my thoughts? I feel this is appropriate.. as any other explanation is either physical or an property of the physical being.

    If i am my feelings or Thoughts then i die every moment (weird); As and when I am thinking about a word and as soon as i have thought about that word;  its no more a present thought, its a past thought.

    So I am what is my current thought?! But i not limited to that! I can traverse back to my previous thought; when i recollect some happenings in the past. So i am kinda past thoughts and present thoughts? But mere thoughts wouldnt necessarily define me, i only act on certain thoughts that i have and discard some of them; So am i a subset of the thoughts which are actionable??!!

    Still this is a vagaue answer. Who are you and Who I am! Not sure. Not sure what the answer is 🙂

    How to improve the conditions of Brahmans? June 27, 2007

    The current state of Brahmin Community in India is deteriorating.  There is urgency now to fight for the upliftment of the forward (So called Forward as they are actually backward) communities of India. To see the plight of the current brahman community in india check this video: http://youtube.com/watch?v=P7Xgc4ljHKM.

    The main reason for the deteriorating situation of the brahman community is our very core value of Tolerance and Non-Violence. I am not advocating violence, atleast we should come out in the street and start protesting for all the injustice that is happening to us. Tolerating injustice as “the Fate” would no longer get us anywhere.

    Some of the things that should help our community to lead a normal life:

    1. Unite all Brahmans in the country.

    2. Form a strong institution that helps develop our community into one of the politically strong and socially strong commuinity.

    3. Form our own network that shall help fellow poor Brahmans in their Livelihood to give them Mental and physical strength to face all the discriminations that they are facing.

    Let me know fellow Brahmans any other ways that you have so that we can help this poor community from discriminations and help uplift this community.

    Actual Backwards should be helped. June 21, 2007

    I would want some policy that would help the backward classes’s state to be improved. Do not mistake this to caste based backwardness which is purely politically motivated. What i am concerned is the improvement of the actual backward people, the poors. THe poor people do not belong to just one or two castes. Every caste has a percentage of poor people whose’s life should be improved and we should help them raise their standards of living.

    We should definetly help them by giving them more moneraty benefits so that they have equal footing to complete with the best in the society. This way by providing them enough scoralships and free tutions, they would be brought to the equal standards that a richer student would get. This help should be provided strictly on the economical factor of the person and should be favoured irrespective of the caste he is born in. Whether he is an SC/ST/Brahmin/OBC, if he does not have enough economic strength to afford education, he/she should be supported by giving access to facilities like books, tution waivers, free tutions so that he would have every resource at his hand to compete.

    Instead of doing such an effort where it would help the actual backward, the rich in the so called SOBC (So called OBC) are depriving the poor of thier basic rights. My suggestion would be to help these Actual Backward classes and the help should reach the needy and not the rich people.

    President of India – By the UPA, of the UPA, for the UPA! June 19, 2007

    The First citizen should atleast be selected based on the Merit of the post.  The people of India would definetly expect some person who is not politically biased in the seat of the President. But what is happening in the election of the president seems to be biased selection. Congress is bent upon a candidate who would just sign what ever drafts that it forwards.

    My support would be to Abdul Kalamji who perfectly fits the post for the president. I appreciate the third front that has elected him as the candidate. Hopefully we can see Abdulji to take on the second term and guide india to a developed nation. (How over optimistic i am!!)

    But having more than enough votes.. UPA’s candidature would walk the easy cake in the elections!

    President – By the UPA ,of the UPA and for the UPA… might be the outcome at the end…
