Shabari's episode in Ramayana teaches lessons for Life

Ramayana is the first spiritual and inspirational story a typical Indian (Hindu) child listens from his/her mother or from the grand parents. I think there is no need to explain the past times of Lord Sri Rama. But sometimes we need to recall a specific event from those kinds of epics to evaluate or understand the real life situations. Following below is such an example.

Role of Widgets in Online Marketing

Today Online web-marketing takes a prominent role in many advertising campaigns over the internet. Each advertiser chooses different media in representing their products or links to the users over the internet. The advertisers can show their ads as text-links over the internet through URLs pointing back to their sites, or they can swtich to scrolling ads as they can sometimes find really better results with them. In case of text based ads using URLs, for any modifications in their ads they have to update the relevant links which take considerable time. There are too many links already available for a number of websites which makes it difficult in getting good response from the customers because a particular link will be one among the hundreds of others links.

Abraham Lincoln's definition of Creative work

This is a nice fact that it is not important what we do. Sometimes, it is only important how best we can do a job (of course the job should not be something like robbery or violence and terrorism, it should be legal, moral and spiritually justified). In engineering terms, we can say, it is not the quantity of the job we do that is important, but the quality of the job which is important.

'Nirvana Shatkam' explains better about 'Atman' - the eternal Soul

The greatness of Hinduism lies in the facts that first of all, it is not a religion but it is only an enduring culture which sustained many invasions, cultural attacks and yet thrives in India. Secondly, in the deeper sense, it offers various methods and practices for the humans so that one can follow his/her preferred method.
Hinduism has nothing to preach against other religions and it is only by the provoking acts of the other religions that today some Hindus are revolting against such attempts, which is again an undesirable thing happening in modern India.

Who is the Supreme God?

Hindus call the Supreme God as "Vishnu" or "Krishna", the Christians may call the same Supreme God as "The Almighty", the Jews may call "Jehova" and the Muslims refer to the same supreme God as “Allah” and finally it is the one and only one Supreme God, who is the ultimate. Can anybody negate this opinion? There is probably no other way left for anyone to negate this opinion, because if they negate this opinion, first of all they are not honest and then there must be different Gods existing, different Earths, and different Universes even!
Before the Jesus Christ, there was no Christianity. But the world existed. Similarly before the birth of Islam, the world existed. And only after Prophet Mohammed, there originated the Islam. However in contrast to these two religions, the Hinduism has no particular date or time that was discovered by the man, to say when it has originated. A little off the topic, to be more precise, Hinduism is not a religion at…

How to Make a Man and a Nation Great!

“Desamante Matti kaadoyi, desamante manushuloyi” is a Telugu proverb which is well known to the people of Andhra Pradesh. And about the great visionary Swami Vivekananda, every Indian has a great respect.

Let me remind to many of you and unveil to some of you, what he has said about the course of making a man and in turn his nation great.

Three things are necessary to make every man great and every nation great.

1. Conviction of the powers of Goodness,

2. Absence of Jealousy and Suspicion,

3. Helping all those who are trying to be and do good.

The great secret is absence of jealousy. Be always ready to concede to the opinions of your brethren and try always to conciliate.

Pakodi and Bhajji - two famous Indian snacks

Pakodi and Bhajji are two of the famous Indian Snacks most commonly found in almost all parts of India. Made from Chickpeas flour (also referred to as Gram flour), they are not only good to taste but also good for health to some extent. The only thing that is not good for health, like in many other preparations, is the Oil. But once in a while, if you want to have a good evening when you don’t feel like going out, for example, when it is raining outside, or on a dull day, you can prepare this snack and relish it, and a cup of tea as a supplement, adds more to your pleasure.The procedure for preparing both of these snacks is very simple.For PakodiCut onions into thin and a bit lengthy slices.Take 150-200 gm of Chickpeas flour (also called ‘Gram flour’ in English) and add some salt and pepper according to your taste and estimation. Add a pinch of turmeric if you like, to get a good color.Mix well, and then add sufficient quantity of water so that the flour becomes a thick paste (slurry)…

Understanding Men and Women fully reading 'Men are from Mars Women are from Venus'

This post offers our feedback about this good book, “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” which contains a description of various insights into understanding the nature of the men and the women in great detail. It is usual for men and women generally to expect their life partners to be the mirror images of themselves in terms of behavior, but it is very rare to find a match like that. Not only in case of life partner, but also with any other men and women (like father, mother, brothers and sisters) sometimes we try to help them thinking they would like what we do and the events turn against us. More important when we open a conversation to help someone is the ‘Timing’ and if it is wrong, the things would only become worse.
For example, men always try to be “Mr. Fix-it” and women always try to do the role of “Home-Improvement committee”, is a good example to understand the behaviors. Mr. Fixit approach of men makes them ‘solutions’ which troubles the women at times. And the woman so…

Greatness lies in the Simplicity

Sooner or Later a man who wins is who thinks he can.
No Defeat if final until you stop Trying!
You only control your action and not the results. So be not motivated by results, nor be attached to inaction.

See how simple and great are the above lines. It is true that Greatness lies in the Simplicity. To become great we shall not look at the great achievements or results attained by the Great people but shall look at the path they followed to become Great.
So if we make up our mind to do good to this world by our words and deeds, then by consistently following this good path, sure on one day we would become Great.

Energy is Magnetic - Believe it and do Creative Visualization regularly

“Energy is Magnetic” at first sounds to be some physics topic dealing with electromagnetic waves or something else, right! But there is also another way of understanding it. Creative Visualization makes you to concentrate on those latent energy levels within you with which, when put in proper use, you can attract the things of similar energies from the physical plane (physical world) to achieve your goals; let them be materialistic or physical or spiritual. But there is a little longer way to go, to understand this “Energy is Magnetic” principle. Belief is the prerequisite for achieving anything in this world. So no technique works if we don’t believe in the things we are doing or following. This fact is almost universally acceptable as some medical research has also shown that without belief even the correct medicine will not cure the illness. And the vice versa is also true to some extent that with belief, even some normal medicine would do wonders in curing the illness. It all depe…

Monitor is also called as ‘VDU’ Visual Display Unit. Monitors & TV set’s use ‘CRT’ Cathode Ray Tube technology initially. In the present environment a newly developed technology has changed the entire VDU’s drastically referred as ‘TFT’ Thin-Film Transistor known as LCD. In today’s world the monitor is not “Just a Display”, by HD (High Definition) a high quality video content is available today. With the High quality rendering Video and High end Graphics and Games there is an improvisation in display.Older:In previous technology CRT is used in display stands for picture tube. In CRT there is a glass envelop consists an electron gun and a phosphor-coated screen. When a computer sends display signals to a monitor these (signals) are converted in to electrons, beamed on to the phosphor-coated screen by electron gun creating an image on the screen.Newer:In present technology TFT technology is used in LCD displays. The main advantage of TFT is the presence of the tiny transistors that …

First job versus Higher Studies - Things to know before decision making

Sometimes our life plays with us putting us in Cross roads where we have different paths to choose. And we need to really have some idea about each of the roads otherwise we may simply go in some road only to find out later that we are at a ‘Point of no return’. These cross roads are our different goals in life and each has its own advantages and disadvantages, but at some point of time, we must chose only one road or one goal leaving the others. This is when the trouble starts.For a student who has completed his basic graduation and has not achieved better academic results, the situation to choose between a small Job to start his/her professional career and to go for Higher studies, is like putting him/her at the Cross roads with the puzzle unsolved. This article only helps you to understand a little better about the practical situations of life which helps you in proper decision making.Things to Know before this Decision making:1.As soon as we finish our studies, we will be very eag…


Introduction:We all know RAM places a major role in increasing the speed of processing. RAM is referred as Random Access Memory. It stores data temporarily; it is a volatile memory that erases all the data contained when the computer is switched off. When system is on the major files i.e system files are stored in the ram for quick processing when needed. The background programs like antivirus and many other are stored in RAM for quick processing. This makes the processing slower for other applications as huge amount of memory is allocated for such programs. So by inserting the RAM in DIMM modules we can extend our primary memory. It depend upon number of DIMM modules. In Ram the data is randomly stored that why it is called RAM, as the data is accessed by the processor randomly.Ram is different from ROM as ROM is read only Memory. There are mainly two types of RAM·Static RAM (SRAM)·Dynamic RAM (DRAM)Static RAM is used mainly where high speed memory is needed as they are faster.Ex:- L…

Introduction:- Motherboards are the most vital core component in a computer. The motherboard shuffles the data to the various components eventually in processing and result in output.
Data needs a medium to travel between various components inside a computer. Motherboard comprises of more electrical components such as processors, capacitors, resistors, cables on the circuit. The fine tracks running all over the computer helps in connecting different components and these series of lines are called a bus.

Parts Present on the Motherboard:- The basic component and slots are as follows
· Processor socket
· Heat pipes (or) Fans
· Power connector
· IDE ports for Hard drives & optical drives
· SATA port hard drives (new Motherboards)
· USB headers & Optional additional USB ports
· PCI Expansion slots
· USB, Ethernet, Sound ports.
· PCIe slot for Graphical cards (New Motherboards)

Working:- The components are directly or indirectly connected to the motherboard. Extension PCI cards or Graphics car…



Hello friends,
The major component of the computer which computes all the functions in the computer is the PROCESSOR.

Introduction:- All of us know what the processor is? How it functions, but we have to know the types and functionality of the processors. The processor acts as a brain to the computer. The processor is one of most important core component in a computer which is mounted on the mother board. It performs complex mathematical calculations with the data we input. INTEL as well as AMD family processors become a generic term for computers.

Types:- Today a single core is nearly to dissolve, as the fastest computing places a prominent role more than one processor is needed for the home as well as business environments. The server systems need more than …
After single core processors, Dual core processors become a minimal standard for the present hardware
environment. Today the major companies like INTEL & AMD has provided Dual Core processors.
Now these companies are l…
