Modi to Advani is same as Ram-Temple was to Vijpai

Now that the dust from the celebrations of Modi's win is done, with some crying out in disbelief [The TV anchors etc of some "stay-cooler" channels], some running around for his head [Karan Thapar - suddently remove him], some using the wave to get a ride to power [Pujya Advani ji].
It was sometime in December of early '90s that a political party promised a Ram Temple, made some acrobatics and claimed the trophy of breaking a disputed structure. While in reality, it were volunteers of a great religion, who did not care for their lives - who did the breaking, while the political folks who were mere bystanders, got (rather stole) the credit.
After that, this political party went out of way, with promises of Ram Temple! The gullible folks of the great religion believed those false promises and lymiricks etc and voted them along with their stooges to power. What was the end result?
5-yrs of corruption, fooling the public etc and only when the election day was near they remembered the original promise. They went out of the way to tell all that they were in an "alliance" so could not do much. A common man would ask -
Why the hell did you go to claim power, if you did not have enough majority?
Why did you fool - all of us?
What is your claim this time?
Then, when the common man realized that this party is very much same as other Khandani-cheats, they were shown the door.
Now, the think-tank (if any?) did not know what to do!!!
The second in command, pujya Advani ji, took the next Bus to Lahore and made some desparate attempts to win the vote bank, akin the Khandani-Cheats. Jinnah became So-Cool(er) and "ji" wanted to play the "Stay-Cooler" card.
After a year or so, he found that due to the real men in his party, there were chances of he coming back to power and immideately ran to his past master and asked them to make him PM-in-waiting, least that the real men start making claims.
Modi (a real man among men) came back to power and like the Khandanis our pujya Advani ji is not tiried singing praise to him.
If the said party comes to power, will they deliver what they have been promising?
Will they put our dear neighbours in their place?
Will they solve the problem of infiltrated Banga Bhandus in old city of Hyd?
Only time will tell - if people are willing to be taken for a ride, time and again!!!!!!

Hi Vijay,

I am not discouraging him. If he gets a fish today (10K job) when will he learn to do fishing for himself?

My comments about SAP/IT Services etc are in general and I do not want any Indian to waste their energies in IT Services world.

Well, you suggestion is taken on the face value of it. (Don't help but Don't do bad also)

I remember that there was never a bad thing from my side till date - nor I did harm to anyone. Regarding help, I do not want to blow my own trumpet here.

However, thanks for giving me an oppurtunity to spend time in these groups, which today I feel, could have been used for other activities, instead of discouraging folks.

Hi Anil,
Nice to see your comments.Dheeraj is asking for only 10K job not more than that?? Instead of giving comments it would be nice if we can help him getting a good job so that he can run is life without any problems.we should not hurt anybody on thoughts and achievements.This type of mails will discourage the people.
My Suggestion is Don't help but Don't do bad also???.we shouldn't discourage any one.I saw so many degreee people are also well settled in software fields.DHeeraj is a pg graduate.He can fulfill his dreams.Hardwork and luck can change everyhting in them.
Try to Encourage people.By typing this type of mails you will be not getting anything else dheeraj will loose some confidence.So my Request for you is to Support and Encourage People instead of commenting on them.if not possible try to be silent.
Anil I dont want to Hurt you.

Hi Dheeraj,
I am not Vijay Mohan - to whom you addressed this mail, but felt I could give you some gyan....
1. It is not your "luck" that is not favoring you - but yourself!!!! From your mail id I can see that you got something to do with Physics; then why did you go and apply for a job in a IT services company?????
2. SAP (ABAP) is not software as many people consider them to be. They are enterprise tools, not for conducting laboratory tests like fibonacii series etc, but to do something really commercial things for an business.
To get into SAP/Enterprise world, first one needs to acquire domain skills then can play around with the Enterprise tools. Just because some Ameerpet Brand training center showcases some non-existant jobs, people rush there, spend their money and join companies... what is the end result...
the day recession starts off, these are the same folks that are thrown out of companies and everyone will start screeming that IT is bad etc... (remember 2000-2 period, when everyone was talking ill of IT)
3. Why are you limiting yourself to 10K per month!!???!! If you realy apply yourself - the money is surplus...
4. why are you asking Vijay Mohan to help you with your job search! Do it yourself, that way you will reach your goals faster and end result is more strong psyche!!
This also applys to others in the group who are just running around with resumes - thinking of getting into some IT services company will solve their problems. This is not true, but it can be begining of new troubles...

Happy Days - Movie

There was a kind of furore over the recent film by Kammula Shekar - called "Happy Days". Everyone whom I bumped across asked me, if I had watched that movie. Jeevi gave his review at IdleBrain, which was definitely a shade better than all others movies. (This movie had a 3.5 rating, while other were lingering around 3).

To top it up, a CTO of a telecom product company mentioned that movie was good. Another CEO of a promising startup made a special mention of the movie and asked me to watch it. Of course, this mail is marked to them too :-)

As I stay in places where Telegu movies are shown only for a week or two, I searched for the DVD (pirated, of course) for the same and finally watched it. My take on the movie is here...

1. Why only the "love" angle of collage life was showcased for most part of the movie?
2. The jokes/themes I felt was a bit cliche!
3. Ragging also had a good running time in the movie, but again the cliche ragging... :-(

I also studied in an Engg. college, that too run-of-a-mill, so could relate to the theme - Engg student's college life. But I felt the director was trying to reinforcing the popular beliefs of these Engg. Colleges than showcasing the "other side" of things that happens in colleges.

There are many aspects to college than just flirting, love, seniors, ragging etc.

There is fun - not just chasing chicks, but real fun in decent way.

There are real-teachers whom one can call "Gurus" who give advices worth remembering.

Also there are ar$eh01es who are industry-rejects and join the place and call themselves "Lecturers". (Majority are the second category, while the first breed are very rare and near to extinction.)

There are enterprising students, who strive to achieve things, but are sidelined by the show-off minorities.

All in all, I would give the movie a rating of 1.5 and on the technical side, it looked more like a tele-film rather than a film-film.

Someone may wonder, what was it that was expecting in the movie - then wait for the movie called "T-Bunk!" directed by Kurnool Anil ;-)

In the end....

Ever heard the song "In the end... " by Linkin Park... (lyrics)

I tried so hard

And got so far

But in the end

It doesn't even matter

The sentance is of at most importance... What ever you do, how ever hard you try, in the end, It just doesn't matter...

Be it life, be it a game, be it a match... only the results matter... whether you won the match or not... no one ever cares to know, how hard you fought, how tough the situation was... as in the end, it just doesn't matter...
