Please click on the link below to have an insight to the article titled "Message to India" by the MIT economist, Lester Thurow. http://www.technologyreview.com/articles/wo_hariharan102903.asp
He has expressed a very note-worthy opinion about what India lacks now and what the government should emphasize in the upcoming years. Do not miss it !

Thanks to the Yahoo and the webcam technology... I could join my sister's b'day party and join the fun with my family members via web-cam and voice chat on yesterday. I spoke to my parents, grandparents, pini, babaye, my brother and my sisters. My bro (Pranavesh) and my little sis (Sindhu) were feeling very happy on speaking with me after a long time. It was nice to watch my sis (Veena) cutting the cake and celebrating the moments.


Do you know what Family means?
I just got an email from my friend (Santosh), in which he has defined the phrase as

Thats interesting...

FOREVER - Dont use it

"FOREVER" is a funny term. Nothing is in our hands to retain the state forever. So, its always better to replace that phrase with "INDEFINITELY".

BE YOURSELF - The only way to enjoy LIFE

Least bother about what others think of you... Be yourself ! This is one of the most impressive features of American culture. On following this principle, we will soon experience the total freedom to enjoy life (but ofcourse, adhered to the society manners & rules). This is in contrast to the society-consious Indian way of living. Some good from here, and some good from there... make up the perfect life-style!

Yesterday, I had great fun celebrating the festival with friends, but sad on being away from my parents. Anyway, I called up my parents, grand parents, uncle, aunt and my cousins in India and wished them a fabulous festive time. I started the day by having my breakfast consisting of 1/2 dozen sweets and savories offered by the 'Internation Student Services' office in UTD.

I spent the rest of my time in the computer lab until 6:00 in the evening and then, my friends and I went to the nearby shopping area. It was here that we had a remarkable time with jokes and laughter for the next few hrs. It was 10:00 pm when we backed to our appartment and had dinner. We soon left to the open-floor dance event organized at the PUB in my university. It was nice fun .... When the event was over, we all went to the lab as usual. We had to quit the lab at 2:00 am, but we had a laughter-filled chat for 1 more hour in the open-air near the parking lot of UTD. I finally had my sleep at 4:00 in the morning. It was a nice experience...

What I learnt in this 2 months of stay in US:

Lesson 1: Observe everything happening around you.
Lesson 2: Be interactive and clear even the silly doubts you have. Its better to clear the doubts rather assuming and doing things wrong.
Lesson 3: Be challenging and take every work you get to perfection.
Lesson 4: Be confident in what you have done.
Lesson 5: Workhard and always finish you work in Time.


I just got this article from the internet. It sounds very practical and funny... Its all about YOUR GIRLFRIEND .................

This piece is meant for all the boys and for only those girls who take it cool ... ~
Which type of woman is your girlfriend?"
Is she an ....

INTERNET woman: Woman of difficult access.

SERVER woman: Always busy when you need her.

WINDOWS woman: Everyone knows that she can't do a thing right, but no one can live without her.

EXCEL woman: They say she can do a lot of things but you mostly use her for your four basic needs.

SCREENSAVER woman: She is not worth for anything, but at least she is fun!

RAM woman: She forgets everything you say when you disconnect her.

HARD-DISK woman: She remembers everything, FOREVER.

MULTIMEDIA woman: She makes horrible things look beautiful.

USER woman: She messes up everything she does and she asks always more than she needs.

CD-ROM woman: She is always faster and faster.

E-MAIL woman: Every ten things she says, eight are nonsense.

VIRUS woman: Also known as "wife"; when you are not expecting her, she comes, installs herself and uses all your resources. If you try to uninstall her you will lose something, if you don't try to uninstall her you will lose everything.

Hmmm! With all my mid-term exams getting over and just 1 project to be completed, the comming week is expected to be more relaxed and lightly loaded. This lets me to put off the academic pressure for a while. But, I may start working on some programming languages to make myself time-packed. Getting busy in a given free time is always a pleasure to me, but the vice-versa is a pain in the neck. . .

Its a very cold day today.... infact the coolest of all days during my stay in US. My first step out of my home today was in the morning at 9:00 am for jogging. It was a chill weather and the cool breeze over me made things worse. My hands started trembling in cold and i started rushing to the building as quick as possible. The same weather persisted ... forcing me to use a jacket the whole day~

I had a great time today with Rajesh anna's family at Fossil Rim. Its an Animal Safari located far away from the city (nearly 1 and 1/2 hr travel from my univ). The animals were left free to move in a forest-like environment and we could get into the safari in our own wagon. There were no lions and tigers ofcourse~ We fed the animals and lots of photos were taken.... A nice fun at the end. Thanks to anna...
