Plan and Analyze your Yearly (Annual) Expenditure with ViprasCraft's "Expenditure Organizer of the Year"

ViprasCraft's "Expenditure Organizer for the Year" is an excel utility file which is mainly intended to let you keep track of your daily seemingly insignificant but real expenses which often go unnoticed. While people should not stop spending, it is worth knowing where we are spending and how best we can consciously plan our expenditure.
For example, let us say, we spent mostly on 'Parties/Eating Out' and less on 'Vegetables/Fruits' in a year, it will ring an alarm in our mind about our stressed and flamboyant lifestyle and reduced personal healthcare.

Smartphones or Tablets versus Laptops or Desktop Computers

As many of us know Smartphones and tablets like Apple's iPad, Samsung Galaxy tab, etc., can almost replace the desktops and laptop computers in terms of the number of different things you can do with them, not entirely though. They are mostly handy when you are on the go.

Further they can even do few other things which the stand alone computers can't do directly (being static/non-movable), like the capturing of photos and small video clips, etc. They have some unique features like GPS (Global Positioning Systems), Geotagging of photos and finally that feature for which the smartphone is primarily in your hands - Voice calls & SMS. These can't be available in any computer except by having some attached auxiliaries. Even then the size matters when you want to go fully mobile.

For mobility reasons we have evolved from using Desktop computers to laptops, to palmtops and recently to tablets and smartphones.

But have you ever thought or wondered as why there are still the new models of desktops, laptops and palmtops still coming up? The numbers in terms of sales and prices may be entirely different now but the need of those devices still exists!

Why Social Networking is more Effective on mobile devices like Smartphones & Tablets

As many of us know, online Social Networking has fast become a daily chore for many of us in the world today. For some businesses it is a part of their business strategy to utilize Social Networking to interact with their customers and hear their voice, for some it is a full time job as they run these social networking websites, for some Social networking is just a free-time job and for some celebrities it might be a way to reach out to their fans and followers.

Though the real time Social networking (physical) can't be replaced by online social networking, a part of the objective is at least achieved through the use of Social networking sites like Facebook, Google+, Twitter, etc.

Child care in various phases of their growth and Parent's responsibility

As per Indian ancient Tradition, a child up to five years should be treated as God, and from five to ten it should be treated as servant and after sixteen we should treat him/her as a friend. See the below sloka (verse) from 'Neeti Sastra':

"Bhagavatpancha varshani, dasa varshani daasavath,
Praptetu shodase varshe, putram mitra vada chareth."

Develop Renunciation for Spiritual progress

Renunciation is not a desire to abandon our kith and kin, friends, home, wealth, job etc., It is only to reduce and eventually stop undue attachments to worldly pleasures and that seeks liberation from the cycle of rebirth. It is included in the four-step practice of Rajayoga. One has to take up this practice after developing Viveka (discriminating faculty). That is after knowing what is good and what is bad, what is true and what is untrue and what is eternal and what is temporary. One has to leave bad, untrue, and perishable things once for all, so that he may turn towards good, truth and eternality. This is called renunciation. One has to cultivate this non-attachment for proceeding on the path of spirituality without which one cannot attain higher stages. We cannot achieve progress on the spiritual path if we are tightly tied down by the chains of attachment.

New mobile phone (Smart phone) - Buyer's Guide, tips and advices for choosing a smartphone

As we all know a mobile phone nowadays is no more a luxury or a comfort but has become a necessity. And there is so much to choose in a mobile phone than to just considering it as a replacement to a landline phone or to think of it as a device to make and receive calls on the go.

This is the decade or era of the Smartphones and that day may not be so far when people may think about people having Smartphones as Smart people and those not having them as foolish people.

This is not an exaggeration looking at the revolutionary changes that had taken place in the last 5 years in the development of Smart phones and the abundant features they have today.

Even the PC manufacturing gaints like Dell, HP, etc have already entered into the mobile phones arena. This tells you how big impact the mobile phone market is causing to the PC market though everybody agrees with the fact that a mobile can do so many of the tasks a PC can do but at the same time it can't entirely replace a PC in terms of functionality and comfort in some ways.

Nokia E72 - User review and basic comparison with other Smart phones

Nokia E72 is one of the best Smartphones available in the market today competing with the likes of Blackberry Curve, Bold models, Samsung Galaxy Ace, Sony Ericsson Xperia, HTC Desire Z, Motorola Defy, etc.

Keeping aside the brand values or the trends or the looks or the too minute technical differences, from the practical usage point of view, infact choosing Nokia E72 over others is neither a compromise on features nor a strange decision taken. At the same time Nokia E72 gives the other phones a run for their money.

By surfing the internet, you can compare the operating systems Symbian OS, Blackberry OS, Mac OS, Android, Bada, etc., and can read 1000s of comments about the pros and cons of all the models of the phones from Nokia, Blackberry, Apple, HTC, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, LG, etc.

Escape the Punishment on the Earth and also in the Hell by following the Real Spirituality as defined by Sahaj Marg

'Raja Dhandana' and 'Yama Dhandana' ('Punishment on the Earth' and 'Punishment in the Hell')
Almost all the religions on the surface of earth believe in Heaven and Hell. Good and pious people will go to heaven and the bad and wicked will go the hell after completion of their spell of life on this earth. They get rewards and comforts in heaven and punishments in the hell according to the individual acts (Karma) on the earth during their life time. This is the concept of the people of the main religions, 'Heaven-Hell' concept.

Wants and Desires

Generally we have some desires. It is quite natural. But we should not become slaves of our wishes. That means we should not have undue attachment towards the things. We see so many things with the idea of having them. This is not correct. To live in this world we need few things. Aspiring for them is not a vice. Food, water, clothes, shelter, education - all these things are necessities. We can aspire for them. So having things is not bad, but having undue attachment towards them is bad. If you are economically sound, you can have some more comforts. Otherwise you will be called a miser. But you should be in a position to live even without those comforts. That means you should always be prepared to live in all the circumstances i.e., in both favourable and unfavourable ones with utmost satisfaction and contentment. A happy man is one who lives happily in all circumstances.
