milking the cow

it doesn't matter who you are in politicis.. BSY, HDK, DG, AK, SMK, Reddy bro etc etc.. there is just one motive.. Milk the cow as much as possible.. the others oppose the loot as they fall behind.. and then one gets overthrown by the other.. and enters a new person with better milking technique.. by this time the herd would have expanded.. in the past two decades Karnataka politics hasnt seen much change and there is no hope for change ...

its freaking depressing reading a national newspaper.. on one side you have A.Raja and the PM and the other side you have BSY...

Weekend Chennai tales

Had been to Chennai on the Diwali weekend. Train travel after a long time and this time with my daughter...She gets hyper on train : Initially she is hyper active , then after some time hyper bored and hyper crying. But interesting train journey.

Chennai has some typical things : The men wear the sparkling white Dhotis and lungies and ride on two wheelers: Something not seen much in Bangalore; The white shirts have a blue tinge because of Robin blue drops added to the detergent soap water....and then the moustaches and the distinct chennai way of saying "saar" ... Enjoyed all this and more. What sambaar in the hotels, yaar! They use tamarind and the right amount of huli pudi...Never get that in Bangalore.

I used to like one Illayaraja song when I was in Chennai the last time when I was in Chennai way back in 1996-1997 timeframe and my uncle was doing his mtech. Was remembering that song and humming it all the while....

I am no web expert, but now it looks really obvious :
If you have the web site traffic, you are literally the superman. Content can gradually evolve.

Bring in the people :Then applications can evolve

"If people do search within Facebook, if they do email within Facebook, if they do instant messaging within Facebook, all of these will chip away at Google's properties."

Google bars Facebook from accessing contacts and other data. Good move, from a rivalry point of view. But Social Network comes with an expiry tag unless you try to bring in some really useful applications apart from sharing photos, videos.

Social Networking websites are a necessary evil. Anyway let us see what happens. Seriously, people can invest time on something more valuable - I know it sounds cliched , but that truly is the case.
