Oscar & Indians

Posted by Dnyanraj on February 23, 2009

“Slumdog Millionaire” won 8 Oscar Awards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jai ho!!!

The Indian king of music has won 2 Oscars.. One for original score and Another for original song..

The another Indian Resul Pookutty won Oscar for the same movie in ‘best sound mixing’ category.

This is really golden day for Indian Film Industry!!

But.. the controversy is with the word “Slumdog”, many people many views.. Everyone has a different angle to look at things. What i think is: people living in slum area are not dogs.. If the intentions of the writer are not to call them dogs but to show their problem & the treatment they are getting, then we all should be Ok with it.

Laptop in Rs.1000/- ????

Posted by Dnyanraj on February 15, 2009

Does it look possible?

At least not to me, until i read this news.

Government of India has allocated Rs 5,000 crore for education mission through ICT, so that students of all professional-science programmes could own their own laptops.

Later after few days i heard that these laptops are having only few files in it, which will be used by students for their study purpose. If this is true then its just a calculator with some memory…

I am waiting for real news to come & also waiting for actual price & configuration of laptop..

I remember something like “Desktop in Rs.10,000/-” project Indian government, that was really BAD..

It was a p3 computer with over-clocked processor

BJP uses Open Source Softwares

Posted by Dnyanraj on January 24, 2009

This is a very good move by Bhartiy Janta Party in India, that they have started using Open Source Softwares in their party office.
source: http://www.linux.com/feature/150549

Even they have decided to implement wi-fi connectivity & IP video telephony for their offices. They are using ubuntu desktops in their Delhi headquarters. I was in Delhi with my friend Amit from 3rd to 9th Jan, that time we heard of this news & planed to visit BJP office, we even got permission to visit the office using some of Amit’s contact, but at the last moment there was some urgent meeting in that office & due to security reasons we could not visit the office.

But i must say Mr. L. K. Adwani’s IT-consultant is a wise man, who has saved a lot of software money for BJP. Also they have got better quality softwares than proprietary ones.

With this BJP has surely one step ahead of all other parties in catching attention of IT community of India. I am a Linux user and i frequently get a link to Mr. L K Advani’s website whenever i am accessing mails related to FOSS or Linux, from my google account (sponsored link).

I think, each and every political party in world should take some tips from Mr. Obama to make effective use of internet for gaining popularity over internet. I am looking forward to see all the political parties in India start using & promoting FOSS.

Here the list of softwares used by BJP :
(ref: http://blog.arpitnext.com/2008/10/bjp-using-foss.html)

Function Chosen software
Server Virtualization OpenVZ and Vtonf
Router + Firewall + VPN Vyatta

Digital Repository ePrints
Email Qmail, Courier Imap and Squirrelmail
Instant Messaging OpenFire plus Spark
Video and Voice Telephony Asterisk, Hylafax
Mailing List Ezmlm
Security Camera Management ZoneMinder
Identity Management Fedora Directory Server
Web Content Management Joomla!
Remote WAN-based Backup VZDump and rSync

Its About Recession Again….

Posted by Dnyanraj on December 8, 2008

In my previous blogs i have mentioned about some points regarding recession from industry point of view..
But what about Freshers (Students)?
Some of them even don’t know understand seriousness of this whole thing?
For those who understand this, What i think they should do is… try to grab any job opportunity comes in front of them, try to get maximum knowledge & experience they can.. So that when market will gain its good position again they’ll be position to negotiate hard with companies.. Also each fresher/student must do something ‘Extra’ to get in focus.. If they have something ‘Extra’ than their colleagues, they are through else not.
Generally what IT students lack is “Domain Knowledge”. Most of them do not have Domain Knowledge of any industry, this is where non-IT people with good logic get jobs in place of a better skilled IT person. Many IT students think that they would be hired because they have Good Marks in exam & Good Coding skills.. But they should understand that coding is just one stage of SDLC(Software Development Life Cycle)..
I have seen many mechanical & production engineers getting jobs only because they have domain knowledge of their field.
So, be aware IT Student.. instead of enjoying your holidays this year make use of them to get some domain knowledge & ‘something’ extra than your colleagues.. Otherwise you’ll not be a part of race..
