Microsoft Surface - Surface computing has arrived

I have seen computers evolve from: 286 processors to Pentium's and AMD's, from Green screen monitors --> black & white --> color --> LCD/TFT, from Keyboards --> mice --> Pointing pens --> touch screens

Now its Surface computing from Microsoft which is going to sweep us off our feet.

Surface computing breaks down traditional barriers between people and technology, changing the way people interact with all kinds of everyday content, from photos to maps to menus. The intuitive user interface works without a traditional mouse or keyboard, allowing people to interact with content and information by using their hands and natural movements. Users are able to access information either on their own or collaboratively with their friends and families, unlike any experience available today.

Surface computing features four key attributes:

Direct interaction: Users can actually “grab” digital information with their hands and interact with content through touch and gesture, without the use of a mouse or keyboard.
Multi-touch contact: Surface computing recognizes many points of contact simultaneously, not just from one finger as with a typical touch screen, but up to dozens and dozens of items at once.
Multi-user experience: The horizontal form factor makes it easy for several people to gather around surface computers together, providing a collaborative, face-to-face computing experience.
Object recognition: Users can place physical objects on the surface to trigger different types of digital responses, including the transfer of digital content.


Surface is a 30-inch display in a table-like form factor that’s easy for individuals or small groups to interact with in a way that feels familiar, just like in the real world. Surface can simultaneously recognize dozens and dozens of movements such as touch, gestures and actual unique objects that have identification tags similar to bar codes.

Surface will ship to partners with a portfolio of basic applications, including photos, music, virtual concierge and games, that can be customized to provide their customers with unique experiences.

Moral is the key of this hillarious story - Must read!!

The pastor entered his donkey in a race and it won. The pastor was so pleased with the donkey that he entered in another race and it won it also.

The local paper read:

The Bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered the pastor not to enter the donkey in any more races.

The next day the local paper headline read:

This was too much for the Bishop, so he ordered the pastor to get rid of the donkey. The pastor decided to give it to a nun in a nearby convent.

The local paper, hearing of the news,posted the following headline:

The Bishop fainted.
He informed the nun that she would have to get rid of the donkey so she sold it to a farmer for $10.

The next day the headlines read:

This was too much for the Bishop, so he ordered the nun to buy back the donkey and lead it to the high plains where it could run free.

The next day the headlines read:

Alas .. the Bishop was buried the next day.

Being concerned about public opinion can bring you much grief and misery and even shorten your life.

So, be yourself and enjoy life. Stop worrying about everyone else's ass and you'll live longer.

My Super Nostalgic Song - YAARON by K.K.

Whenever I hear this song, I feel like my entire life is being replayed in my mind. This song talks about Friendship and love. All my friends, those fun times we had, small fights, some of them moving to different countries to persue their dreams, everything just feels like it happend yesterday!

I feel that only Friendship is the only purest form of love after Parental love. What's life without friends. As the song starts with...

Yaaron, dosti badi hi haseen hai
Ye na ho to, kya phir, bolo yeh zindagi hai
Koi to ho razdaar Begaraz tera ho yaar Koi to ho raazdaar..

Also, if we treat our life partners like friends, I guess there will be no misunderstanding or fights because only in friendship we accept the person for what she or he is. He he he...I think I am thinking like an uncle now...ha ha ha!! (Which I am)

Yaaron, mohabbat hi to bandagi hai
Ye na ho to kya phir bolo yeh zindagi hai
Koi to dilbar ho yaar Jisko tujhse ho pyar Koi to dilbar ho yaar..

I cannot even think of myself without friends who were/are/will be there for me no matter what might happen. They are there with me to scold me, correct me, help me and share all the joy I am in.

Teri har ek buraee pe dante woh dost
Gham ki ho dhoop to saaya bane tera woh dost
Nache bhi woh teri khushi me...

So friends, lets celebrate our friendship to the every moment we have to the rest of our lives!!

Missing all the friends who are not around and thanks for all the friends who are around!!!!

Cow Economics III

What will you do if you had two cows? Keep them, sell them, outsource them? Here's a look at what Infosys, TCS or HCL can do with two cows...

Traditional economics

You have 2 cows, You put both of them on the bench & hire another two to do the job

You have 2 cows, You tell them that only one will go to onsite. You ask both of them to fight for the only H1B VisaBoth of them die after fighting

You have 2 cows, You milk them only for 24 hours on just 7 days a week. They run away

You have 2 cows, You train them for 2 months on how to milk themselves. Then u ask them to pull bullock carts

You have two cows, You sell one & force the other to produce the milk of 4 cows. You profess surprise when the cow drops dead

You have 5,000 cows, none of which belong to you, You charge others for storing them

You have two cows, You redesign them to 1/10th the size of a normal cow & make 20-times the milk. You then create cartoon cows called Cowkimon & market them

Why Groundwork is important - Story of Salesman in Dubai!!

A disappointed salesman of Coca Cola returns from his Middle East (Dubai) assignment.

A friend asked, "Why weren't you successful with the Arabs?"

The salesman explained, "When I got posted in Dubai, I was very confident that I will make a good sales pitch as Cola is virtually unknown there.

But, I had a problem; I didn't know to speak Arabic. So, I planned to convey the message through 3 posters.

First poster: a man crawling through the hot desert sand, totally exhausted and fainting. Second, the man is drinking our Cola and third, our man is now totally refreshed.

Then these posters were pasted all over the place."

"That should have worked," said the friend.

The salesman replied, "Well, not only did I not speak Arabic, I also didn't realize that Arabs read from right to left..."

Screwed up weekend!!

This weekend was the most screwed up weekend in the recent past. A Screw(literally) screwed up my Saturday and Sunday. Read on to know what a Screw did to my life!

Friday started off with a bomb blast at Mecca Masjid in Old City and there was a bit tension prevailing in the city. I was a bit worried that my mom and my wife were out for a doctor appointment at that time. They had difficulty getting auto to reach home but finaly managed to reach home safe.

Incident 1(Friday, 18 May 2007) :Missing Mobile

Once they reached home my wife found out that her cell phone was missing. So, most probably he might have accidently slipped the phone in the auto they took to home. We dailed the number it ang for sometime and after some time we found the mobile switched off.

There it started. I reached home late that night as I was held at work due to some work. I told my wife not to worry as we can get another cell phone and by this time the auto wallah might have sold the mobile in jagdish market, had biryani, some beer and might be sleeping now.

Incident 2(Friday/Saturday 19 May 2007): Chasing the Sun

From many days I have been clicking sun sets and moon, so wanted to click sun rise for a change. So, I set the alaram at 5.30 AM and hit the bed at 12.30 Am. I tried hard but was not getting sleep. So I turned on the PC and played Need for Speed for some time. My wife woke up from the sound efects in the game.

We both watched the movie Devdas(telugu) till 4.30 AM. I thought in another 1 hour I was planning to get up to click the Sun, so I took my camera and went outside at 5 AM. I clicked the cloud patterns, morning sky for 1 hour.

5.30 AM - Clicking clouds and morning sky.

6 AM - No signs of the sun. I started clicking the birds around my home.

6.30 AM - Still no sign of the sun, but hte sky was getting lit. I say few puppied playing with its mother, got few snaps of them.

7 AM - My eyes were shutting down. But the sun, Naaahh...... he is on strike I guess.

8.00 AM - Bham, I see him right on top in the sky like midday sun. I expected to see the rising orange ball of fire as we see it during the sun set but......

So, I clicked what I can get, had my break fast and hit the bed. So much for Chasing the sun. Then I thought, Lord Hanuman himself burnt his mouth chasing the sun. Who am I, compared to him. I just burned my eyes, not sleeping.

Incident 3(Saturday 19 May 2007): Operation Flat tyre

I and my wife went to a friends reception in abids, from there when to her aunts palce. Sat there for couple of hours, had dinner and while we were returning home at night 10.30 there was a loud bursting sound and there my bikes rear tyre goes flat!!

I had to push my bike for 2 kms to get to repair shop. I felt myself lucky to find one at that time(as it was bandh, due to the blasts the day before). At the shop my bike the 4'th one. That means I have to wait till the 3 bikes who were already there get fixed. I called my wifes brother to come and pick her up as it was not safe for her to be on road at that time in the night. There was a 4 inch bolt(screw) in the trye, I cannot imagine how it dug in !!

My bikes turn came at 11.30 PM, and when it was fixed there we another 2 bikes waiting. I guess it was " Flat Tyre Day" or something.

It was 12.30 AM so, I also went to my wifes aunts place. I was feelin bad that I will be missing my Weekly Photography Expedition :-( but could't help.

One good thing that happend was my friends(Naveen and Anand) dropped in at sunday evening to my house and we went for a short drive and had fun and we were missing our dear buddy chinnu who flew for London on Friday morning.

So thats how my weekend ended and I am glad that it ended soon.

May 18(Today), 1974 - The day Buddha smiled

Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi at the Indian nuclear test site in Pokhran.

The Smiling Buddha was the first nuclear test explosion by India on May 18, 1974 at Pokhran. It was also the first confirmed nuclear test by a nation outside the permanent five members of the Security Council.

On September 7, 1972, Prime Minister Indira Gandhi gave authorization to the scientists at the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) to manufacture the nuclear device they had designed and prepare it for a test. Throughout its development, the device was formally called the "Peaceful Nuclear Explosive", but it was usually referred to as the Smiling Buddha.

The head of the development team was Raja Ramanna. Other key members were P.K. Iyengar, Rajagopala Chidambaram, and Nagapattinam Sambasiva Venkatesan. The project employed no more than 75 scientists and engineers from 1967-1974. Keeping it small served to aid in the preservation of secrecy, according to the researcher Jeffrey Richelson.

The device used a high explosive implosion system developed at the DRDO Terminal Ballistics Research Laboratory (TBRL) in Chandigarh based on the American design from World War II. But the Indian design was simpler and less sophisticated than the American system. The 6 kg of plutonium came from the CIRUS reactor at BARC. The neutron initiator was a Polonium-Beryllium type (again like those used in early U.S. bombs of the Fat Man type) code-named "Flower." The complete core was assembled in Trombay before transportation to the test site.

The fully assembled device had a hexagonal cross section, 1.25 m in diameter and weighed 1400 kg. The device was detonated at 8.05 a.m. in a shaft 107 m under the army Pokhran test range in the Thar Desert (or Great Indian Desert), Rajasthan. Officially the yield was reported at 12 kt, though outside estimates of the yield vary from 2 kt to 20 kt.

Code name:

Smiling Buddha was the code-name of the project because May 18, 1974 (the official test date) was Buddha Jayanti, a festival day in India marking the birth of Gautama Buddha.

The then-PM Indira Gandhi was not present at Pokhran so as to keep this operation confidential until the last minute. In her full cabinet, only her NSA and private secretary knew about it.

On May 18, 1974, when the blast occurred successfully, Dr Ramanna wanted to tell this news to the Prime Minister, who was miles away in Delhi. The hotline was not working, so he went to a nearby village and called her from an ordinary landline and said "Madam, Buddha has finally smiled."

My dream come true

Me with a live snake

I was always fascinated by snakes and wanted to take a look at them from close quarters. One day we were returning from one of our photography expedition to rocks and mountains at interior parts of Gachibowli, we saw a snake in the water pool on the road.

We stopped by, got few clicks of the snake. I was so amazed that I could not resist holding it in my hands. The sanke was too delicate than I expected. I got a feeling that I might kill it accidently holding it too tight. Once everyone got their clicks of the snake we left it back into the bushes. Watch out for the clicks I got in my future albums.

Though it was a small snake, it was an amazing experience to me which I will never forget. I wish that I get to interact with bigger snakes in future.

Project Qutub Shahi Tombs

Right beside the Golconda fort are a cluster of tombs, the most authentic evidence of the Qutub Shahi architectural traditions. Ensconced amidst picturesque and landscaped gardens, known as Ibrahim bagh, is the grandeur of these tombs dedicated to the memory of the seven Qutub Shahi kings who ruled Golconda for nearly 170 years.

One good thing I felt good about tombs is that we had shade to relax whenever we are tired or felt that we are burnt enough in the sun(Unlike Golonda - where ever we went Sun followed).

Again this is not the first time I am visiting these tombs but I couldnt help appreciating at the architecture and colossal domes of the tombs. I wonder how they constructed these at those times.

The irritating thing here is people putting their graffiti on the walls and it is a shame to say that these tombs which are the memories of the kings are now places to fool around for lovers. Government should increase security so that these magnificent structures remain for the coming generations to admire.

Below are the clicks I got at the Qutub Shahi Tombs:

Rage Against the Machine - Story behind their debut albums cover art

Thích Quảng Ðức photographed during his self-immolation. According to David Halberstam, "As he burned he never moved a muscle, never uttered a sound".

Rage Against the Machine is the debut album by rock band Rage Against the Machine, released November 3, 1992. The cover art of this album is the photograph of Thích Quảng Ðức's self immolation.
Thích Quảng Ðức (born Lâm Văn Tức in 1897 – June 11, 1963), was a Vietnamese Buddhist monk who burned himself to death at a busy Saigon intersection on June 11, 1963.

His act of self-immolation, which was repeated by others, was witnessed by David Halberstam, a New York Times reporter, who wrote:

“ I was to see that sight again, but once was enough. Flames were coming from a human being; his body was slowly withering and shriveling up, his head blackening and charring. In the air was the smell of burning human flesh; human beings burn surprisingly quickly. Behind me I could hear the sobbing of the Vietnamese who were now gathering. I was too shocked to cry, too confused to take notes or ask questions, too bewildered to even think.... As he burned he never moved a muscle, never uttered a sound, his outward composure in sharp contrast to the wailing people around him."

Thích Quảng Ðức was protesting against the way the administration of South Vietnamese President Ngô Đình Diệm was oppressing the Buddhist religion.

After his death, his body was recremated. During the cremation, his shrunken heart still remained intact. It was thenceforth considered holy and placed in the care of the Reserve Bank of Vietnam.

The iconic photograph of Thích Quảng Ðức's immolation was used as the cover art to American rock band Rage Against the Machine's self-titled debut album.

Trip to Srisailam

Kids we met in the forest
All pictures @

We (Pavan, Naveen, Anand, Naveens friend and me) started to Srisalam On Friday 4'th of May 2007 at 1.30 AM(yes you have read it right) in a Toyota Qualis. The reason for this was, the last 78 Kms of the trip is in dense jungle and we are allowed to pass through it from Morning 6 to Evening 6. we did not want to wait near the check post so we started at midnight so that we can reach the check post by early morning.

Just 30 minutes into the trip, my Hunger strikes back. I was feeling hungry and these guys were complaining that I always feel hungry. Thank god that the driver also was also hungry. We stopped at a so called dhaba, sweaped it up of all the resources it had (Rotis, Dal, Tomato Curry and omelets). As the saying goes in our group "Even in a small road side shop, our bill is equalent to that in a star hotel".

The sky was brightly lit with moon which I couldn’t resist clicking. We were there at the check post by 6 AM (not to mention we lost our route in between and had covered 70 kms extra).

We stopped by in the forest and found some kids gathering water. I was surprised to see that these kids were pretty decent, calm and friendly with us. I couldn’t explain the joy on their faces when I showed the pictures of them on the LCD screen of the camera. At that time I felt, I wish I could share these pictures with these kids! but unfortunately it is not possible.

We reached Srisalam by 8 AM. Took a room, in the same choultry that we took previously. Talking about our previous trip to Srisalam, it was on Bikes, yes!! 550 Kms up and down - in one day. And it was on July 9'th 2006. At that time also we started off at 1 AM after a small party. I think Vodka in my body made me drive through the night in the forest at that time..Ha ha ha.

Finished our darshan by 10.30 Am and we feasted on prasadam. So we went back to our room rested for an hour and then visited Patal Ganga, Went for a rope way and a boat ride.

Then we pounced on the very first dhaba we found and sweaped it up (literally). Dhaba walla had to say that he is out of food.

On our way back we stopped at Dindi dam which was pretty good and we were back in Hyderabad by 10 PM. Everyone was damn tired and, there was no energy in us say good bye to each other.

We all wondered, how we made it on bikes last time!! Only God knows!!!!

Please find all the pictures of the trip @

Project Golkonda

Chill guys, it’s not a movie name or some kind of project to protect the ancient fort. Its about our photographic expedition to the 800-year-old ruins.

I have visited this fort many times from my child hood and every time its new kind of vision I am seeing it with. I never got bored admiring the architecture and clicking our way to the top (in spite of the 41 degree scorching sun).

Before we started to the top, our team(Sajjad, Vivek, Veeru, Sai, saif and me) decided that we will not take the conventional way of steps to reach the top. So we walked our way across the rocks, tunnels, trees, walls to the very top.

We had lot of fun climbing the rocks, crossing the ledges and jumping the walls. We all were completely drenched in sweat after reaching the top and I had to drink couple of bottles of juices and water to compensate for the fluid loss :-).

Totally it was a wonderful experience but one thing which irritated me a lot is people putting their graffiti on the walls. This is rich heritage that one should protect as once its gone it cannot be brought back. I guess government should educate people and also arrange for more security to protect the monuments. So let us do our part to protect these monuments, lets not litter the place with plastic and use trash bins always.

Below are the few clicks I got at the Golkonda Fort:

Whats in the name?

Did you guys ever think what your name means? Nahh....not the meaning that you Mom gave or what people tell you, I am talking about in Cyberspace.

I had such thought and wanted to know what do I get for my name "Bharani" on the Internet. So, I opened Wikipedia Site ( and type my name and hit search and after seeing what I saw.....I thought it was a bad idea to do think what your name means on Internet.

Here is what I got:

Bharani is the second nakshatra in Hindu astronomy, corresponding to 35, 39, and 41 Arietis. (So far so good)

In Hinduism, Bharani is a goddess of bad luck. Like her sister Anuradha, she is a daughter of Daksha, and wife of Chandra. talks about Bharani as a does not relate to me!!

Whats next? I tried names of my close buddies, the results I got were either some related names(not direct hits) or related to some god or something good(unlike my name), why only me...!

So, whats in the name? Nothing!! It depends on us on what name we get to our name.

As William Shakespeare said "What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet".

Anyways, its time to get off cyberspace and get into reality(Time to work!).

How Investors work? - A story

Once upon a time in a village a man appeared who announced to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for Rs. 10.

The villagers seeing that there were many monkeys went out in the forest and started catching them. The man bought thousands at 10 and as supply started to diminish and villagers started to stop their effort he announced that now he would buy at 20 rupees.

This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again. Soon the supply diminished even further and people started going back to their farms. The offer rate increased to 25 and the supply of monkeys became so that it was an effort to even see a monkey let alone catch it.

The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at 50! However, since he had to go to the city on some business his assistant would now buy on behalf of the man.

In the absence of the man, the assistant told the villagers, "Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man has collected. I will sell them to you at 35 and when the man comes back you can sell it to him for 50."

The villagers queued up with all their saving to buy the monkeys.

Phir na woh aadmi mila na us ka assistant........... Sirf bandar hee bandar....

Moral of Story:

Investors invest at early stages of stock, and when price shoots up and public think that it will go up more and more, they escape from their positions at higher prices.

So make your self always in sync with investors, if you consider you smart in investing, then 1000s of smart people already in place.Book consistent profits and be away from market when no stock is available at it’s worth price.

Once all village people decided to pray for rain. On the day of prayer all people gathered and only one boy came with an umbrella.... .. that's Confidence..

Trust should be like the feeling of a one year old baby when you throw him in the air, he laughs.....because he knows you will catch him.... that's Trust..

Every night we go to bed, we have no assurance to get up alive in the next morning but still we have plans for the coming day....that's Hope..

Keep Confidence !
Trust Others !!
Never Lose Hope !!!
