Tamil Versus Sanskrit

Deepak Karthik | Sunday, November 23, 2014 | Best Blogger Tips


Of late, there has been a much of a talk comparing the classical languages namely Tamil and Sanskrit.

Apparently it leads to a debate seeking which one of the languages is oldest and rich in heritage. Though it is of no pivotal use for us now to debate this lingual issue, it would be great to revive our past and even to carry a glimpse of such topics would be considered as stupendous contribution for generations to come.

So, Tamil versus Sanskrit.
I assure you, I am not going to be biased or eccentric with my post just because my mother tongue is Tamil.
As per the literatures of Tamil, one should respect others mother tongues as such he expects others to respect his own language. To each his own...


Before we go into the lingual debate, let us take a look at Hinduism which is considered as indigenous religion if India. Though India is secular and 'few' Indians are secular, we have to embrace the fact that Hinduism had played a pivotal role in shaping India all over the years.


Both Sanskrit and Tamil are associated with Hinduism.

In Hinduism, Manu has been considered as progenitor (first man) of humanity. It is said that Manu was once a king of Dravida kingdom, which is apparently located at Southern part of India. By then it should very much different. Besides, it is said that Manu moved to north along with seven sages to protect himself from great flood (Tsunami?). Later he went on to write Manusmriti, some sort of handbook for Hindus but Manusmriti wasn't a holy book for Hindus.

On the other hand, Kumari Kandam (Lemuria) is believed to have eaten up by Tsunami. Lemuria or Kumari Kandam is believed to be the oldest civilization ever existed, way ahead of Atlantis, Indus Valley and Sumerian.

If Manu was a king of Dravida kingdom, shouldn't he be a Dravidian having some indigenous language of his own other than Sanskrit. Could that be Tamil ? or some language that served as a prototype for Tamil. Speculations...

Besides, 55 percent of the inscriptions found in India had Tamil-Brahmi scripts.
However, experts say that Sanskrit had a rich grammar and had the ability to record it in written format.

Though Tamil still survives in both forms of speech and text, Sanskrit is by and large exists only in texts. Amount of Sanskrit speakers is way less compared to the native speakers of Tamil. Though we argue Sanskrit as mother of many European languages, perhaps Sanskrit might have had one for itself.

My speculation is that, Sanskrit could have evolved from Tamil (just a speculation, no proofs). Latter one survived and survives in vast area such as Malaysia, Singapore, Sri Lanka and some of Maldives. So the concept of Kumari Kandam, a submerged Lemuria civilization could be a plausible fact.

Apart from the that, it is widely accepted that Dravidians supplied food for Pandyas during the Kurukshetra. It should be possible either Dravidian kingdom must have been extended till today's Maharashtra and Gujarat. Supporting the speculation, even Indus Valley civilization had the Dravidian style of ponds with ghats on four sides.


I might be so wrong with my concepts, correct me if I'm wrong.
Comments and debates are welcome...

But I am so strong on saying one known fact here, contributions of Dravidians and anything from South such as the mightiness of Chera, Chola, and Pandyas were overshadowed by someone or something from the North.

Neglecting Nearer Stuffs...

Deepak Karthik | Sunday, November 23, 2014 | Best Blogger Tips

Few months ago, whole of India erupted in joy for celebrating the milestone achievement of an Indian made object entering another planet of our galaxy. Indeed a stupendous achievement it was. Lets' not talk rocket science.

I am from Thanjavur, if you are not familiar with this city you should probably Google as 'Thanjavur Big Temple'. If you have Googled, you must be seeing a gigantic stone made temple standing tall and pride. Whenever I used to mention about my home town, people used to ask me about the looks of Big Temple, the one we were talking about.


I shall not consider their enquiries seriously as I used to commute past the temple a number of times in a day. But for a person crossing the temple for first time, he would glance the monument as if a hungry beggar stares at Mutton Biriyani. Not just me, people hailing from such iconic locations would seriously give a damn for their icons existing within their boundaries. For people nearer to Taj Mahal, it is not a great big deal to talk about it. Similarly for people living at the down hills of Himalayas.


What we infer here is, we sporadically neglect our own identities situated nearer to us.  
Not just monument or people, even the history.


We talk so proud about the invasion of Alexander or Mongols, How many of us know about the great sea expeditions of Cholas. Cholas literally conquered several parts of today's South-East Asian nations beyond Sumatra Island.
One such neglected subject is Kumari Kandam.



Could be so true as several hypothesis commonly put forth a claim that world's oldest civilization could have perished at the ancient 'Lemuria' (submerged Kumari Kandam). The same land mass is also believed to have served as an ancestor to the Atlanteans (Atlantis), Aryans (Arctic) and other human civilization till today.
Though nothing can be proved with concrete evidences (as of now), I personally believe that there is a civilization sleeping beneath our modern day Bay of Bengal and Indian Ocean. Poompuhar which is presently reduced to a meager fishing hamlet is speculated to have functioned as a major sophisticated port city of Lemurians.

While the underwater city 'Dwaraka' in the Gulf of Khambat was carbon dated to 9,500 years old. As per the Tamil myths, it is stated that the sea swallowed kingdom that was once believed to have situated in a land mass i.e. Kumari Kandam about 11,000 year ago. Kumari Kandam (Lemuria) could have existed in the same or earlier time frame of Atlantis which perished at the other end of ocean according to Plato.
WHATEVER, It is so sad to realize the fact that we the potential Indians do not have enough interested historians, funds and adequate technologies to probe this ancient treasure.

From Being Managed To becoming Managers

Deepak Karthik | Sunday, October 12, 2014 | Best Blogger Tips


"India is, the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grand mother of tradition. our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only." - Mark Twain.

From Being Managed To becoming Managers.
India and her children were once considered as ASSETS and we were treated as entities made for stakes.
We were once managed by them and time has come for us to help them show HOW TO MANAGE ?
Interestingly we are not teaching them how to manage our stuffs but their's own.


Cinema is a medium, for an instance, if a Hollywood film shows Italians as people who are either olive oil marketers or hailing from some Mafia, such perspectives shall be etched in our minds. So are you Italian ? You belong to which Mafia ? Do you sell olive oil ?
And so for people Vietnam, China and in the queue INDIA with theirs and ours own identity these movies throw.

Lets take a look...
1970's
Now India in the world's eyes shall be seen as Indians either dark or dusky guys. If it is an Indian man, he will be wearing a turban, possibly an athletic man and often employed either as cab driver or as a bouncer abroad. Indians living in their country shall only be seen as livestock owners.

1990's
Congested roads, cattle loitering as an Ambassador car propels by farting smog, dusky women in Ghoongat (veiled saree) carrying water pots, dark snake charmers minting money, mild Hindustani music in the background and girls in the outfit of Mughal's courtyard dancing for the beats...
This is how Hollywood and most of the bond movies featured India a couple of decades ago.

That's India that was not. Well, let me rephrase a little, that's India partially it was and it is.

2000's
As years rolled, Hollywood in the early 2000's also had it's evolution.
Then India was portrayed as a bunch of hard working youths fitted with headphones and speaking before rectangle shaped monitors in different voice modulations assisting Americans in some hectic banking process or with some product services.  


Thanks to A R Rahman and Slumdog Millionaire.
Many of the Hollywood movies had Hindustani flavour in their beats, that for a change flavoured the globe with some Desi factor.
Whatsoever, world continues to see India as a place spread with poverty and as unhygienic ground. To an extent it was true, being an Indian as we pollute the road each day, we must have the heart to agree as well.


These are the perspectives that cinema spotlights India as...
In reality, India has developed a little but in many fields. India is glowing and emerging.
World nations find India as country of opportunity, as someone said the ensuing century belongs to India and China. Blah Blah Blah...


Development factor in India and for India as a nation is still not so illustrious but it is promising.
On the contrary, Indians have scaled new heights. I meant the Indians who are not living in India. Be it Indian origin guys or also the Non Residential Indians (NRI), they are soaring like anything.

Indians on Demand...
Global giant conglomerates are being run by Indian born Chief Executive Officers (CEO).

Whenever I double click on Adobe Photoshop, all that my eyes focus were on a bunch of Indian names. Balakrishnan, Narayanan, Prthiviraj etc.
Pepsi, Adobe, Deutsche bank, NASA and many a semiconductor forms are administrated by Indians.

Google's Pitchai (Google Images)


Microsoft's Nadella (Google Images)

What is the need for giants like Microsoft and Google to appoint Indians for the coveted posts?

Well, I believe that we the Indians are just composed like our own masala movies.

We know how to respect people, we are tricky enough to know how to win over something by investing our words (Sycophancy). We know how to conserve our vital resources (only when it is our's hard earned but not our natural resources).
Of all, we know how to build a relationship and how to sustain it under all odds.


Basically, adjusting/flexibility and manoeuvring our lives as per our roads are in our DNA.
May be because of that, Europeans and Americans might keep their bets on Indians for heading their billion dollar firms.

We are humble enough to accept our mistakes and may be because of our religion and people around us, we fear for our conscience (not all of us).
We are people on smart pants, we are nothing lesser to our counterparts living in New Hampshire or New Orleans.

Since majority of us started our lives from scrap, we know how to keep our kingdom rigid.
We are known for our temperament and we are as always known for AIMS.

As long as we have our indigenous 'Indian Values' and the ability to achieve stuffs from grass root level and also the kindness, hospitality we are gifted with...
World shall go in the DESI way...
The day is not so far when and where Holywood shall portray Indians as managers of familiar companies and India as a potential land for qualified managers.


Thanks to our family structures and our centuries old tradition.

We are what we are because of what we were !

A fantastic product steal

Deepak Karthik | Thursday, October 02, 2014 | | Best Blogger Tips
A fantastic product steal

Though, I might not be a vigorous online shopper, but i would definitely like to share a recent online shopping indulgence of mine, that might make me shop more liberately from now on. I recently bought a skater dress from the ‘monochrome edition’ section of Myntra, which truly allured me into purchasing it. More than the dress itself, the entire look and feel of the ‘Monochrome section’ was fantastic. 

Almost everything under this category seemed worth grabbing, but thankfully I could get a hold of myself and came down to one scintillating dress out of all. But in the search of a perfect dress for me, I ended up choosing the one that was also huge in price. But by then, I had made up my mind to buy it by any means!!!



This is what led me to search for Myntra deals and offers, and it is when I came across a fantastic website named CupNation where you can find almost every retailer offering you with the best deals. Luckily, I found the latest Myntra couponson the same couponing website. And I picked up the latest coupon code for Myntra, which was also perfectly applicable on my purchase amount. The coupon code promised to help me grab an additional rebate on my total purchase amount…..and it actually did!!! As soon as i applied this coupon code on the checkout page of Myntra website, I grabbed a discount on my entire purchase amount…

BINGO!!! And that truly made me really-really delighted.  Over all, a great online shopping experience at Myntra is what I indulged in, a few days back. More credit goes to CupoNation which is one of the India’s huge inventory for coupons!!!!!

Ladoos

Deepak Karthik | Sunday, September 21, 2014 | Best Blogger Tips

A middle-aged man was seen sobbing badly with a pack of ladoos before a portrait. A portrait of an old man adorned with flowers and incense sticks. Finest quality of ladoos and aromatic sticks available they are.

His hand is full of ladoos, ladoos that can tickle taste buds. Ladoos in handsome quantity,
but why was he weeping then ?

PIC: Google images


Well, his deceased dad was fond of ladoos but never got an aplenty of chances to taste them as his only son was busy buying candies for his own wards. And the weeping son had no time to spend for his feeble father but had enough to change Facebook status and display pictures every now and then.

Now, he abuses god and the weak heart of his father's for snatching away the old man from him.
Just like he abused the invisible god for taking away his mother a couple of years back.

It took a heart to realise the importance of ladoos in his life at the cost of a heart which is now probably engulfed by raging fire which was set by none other than him.

"How delightful my father would have felt if the realisation has come a little earlier?", he lamented.
A couple of dogs looking at the scene barked,
"Funny humans, aren't they?. They starve a heart that beats for love love and feeds a portrait with all their hearts."

Let's show some love for hearts whose stations can be reached any time now !
Better late than never.

What are the Specialty of Jogging Shoes

Deepak Karthik | Friday, August 22, 2014 | Best Blogger Tips



What are the Specialty of Jogging Shoes


Wearing old and worn out sneakers for jogging or running is completely unadvisable. Such shoes do not offer the right amount of comfort and support required which results in lower-back or foot pain. Jogging shoes are specially designed to provide benefits in comparison to regular sneakers while jogging or running. The key features that make them so special are listed out below so that you can profit by investing on them and using them for jogging purposes.
Chief Characteristics of Jogging Shoes:
Here are the chief characteristics of jogging shoes that differentiate them from other regular shoes in terms of their build:
  • Outsole – This is the jogging shoe’s bottom or base part and the quality ones usually comprise of two rubber varieties in the outsole including the blown and the carbon rubber. While the carbon rubber has much weight and is stiff in nature, the blown rubber happens to be light in weight and is flexible as well as cushioned. Any pair of good jogging shoes will have split heel and flex grooves in the outsole. The flex grooves are meant to fit in horizontally from across the outsole’s forefront and tend to roll plus flex the foot ‘at the ball’ while jogging. Split heel on the other hand, encourages the heel-to toe functionality while jogging.
  • Midsole – This is basically the area lying between the upper art and the outsole and is made from shock-absorbent material. Its construction as well as material composition influences the support and cushioning system of the shoe which is why midsole holds great importance. A functional jogging shoe will contain either of the two cushioning types; i.e. the EVA and the polyurethane. The former is light in weight and offers durability as well as stability while cushioning the shoe; while the latter is denser and more stable adding heaviness to the shoe composition. The stiff materials within the midsole offer overall stability and prevent excess of inward rolling.
  • Upper – This is the jogging shoe’s outer body and the materials used for making this part needs to be heavy-duty leather and lightweight mesh. Such materials not only offer stability but also snug fit and comfort.
You can find the most comfortable and highly efficient branded jogging shoes at healthkart at quite reasonable prices. Healthkart.com is one of the most popular online shopping stores for sports equipments and accessories today which provides health and fitness products at discounted rate by using healthkart coupons for more offer and deal visit couponzguru.com.
Other factors that you must know while shopping for jogging shoes include the following:
  • The Traction Factor:
As mentioned above, the rubber in outsole enables jogging in areas of rough terrain. Traction is also essential in the jogging shoes for maintaining balance in wet, sloping and other conditions where the earth is loose. This is the reason why you must look for jogging shoes with sufficient traction in the outsole.
  • The Breathability Factor:
Materials that promote breathability include synthetic leather and nylon. The synthetic leather is flexible and strong yet light in weight and is highly recommended. At times, manufacturers install thermoplastic urethane (TPU) in thin layers to increase the shoes’ durability along with the breathability factor. There are some waterproof jogging shoes that help keep moisture away while allowing the feet to breathe.

Healthgenie offers the most functional jogging shoes that have all the above factors in their build. These branded jogging shoes are highly preferred by sports persons and athletes and you can easily access them through this popular online shopping store at truly affordable prices.

The Contagious...

Deepak Karthik | Sunday, August 17, 2014 | Best Blogger Tips


There are several blog posts of mine that I wrote owing either to the compulsion of the people or succumbing to the tyranny of the time. But, many of the fewest posts that I pen down due to the impact caused by several occurrences deep down in my heart are either appreciated by my friends or left untouched and unused alike the public dust bin.

Cutting down the crap, here we go to the post...
                      


                                                         " The Contagious "

Before I begin, trust me this post is not about EBOLA.
Over a period of time as humans rolled down the clock, some deadly diseases have always scared the shit out of the humans. Be it plague of the past or Ebola of the present or whatever disease that gonna threaten our humanity in the future.

Why is that only negative things are so contagious than positive things?
Why our happiness are not contagious ? or why not our love be contagious ?
Can they never be contagious ?
Not really, They CAN BE.
But we simply are so lazy to take initiatives...


Human beings have become so busy, the other day, I saw a man who is familiar to me got injured in an accident. All that I did was just stopped my bike and ran to rescue him. He gave me a smile and said that he is all right. I was not alone, there were people around him but all of them are people known to him.
It is HIGHLY unlikely for me to stop my vehicle if he was a stranger to me.

Deep down in our heart, we have the GOOD us. The good person in us who cares for a total stranger, 

'Son, get into the bus. Don't stand near the foot board.'
'Sister, your shawl appears to be vulnerable for getting struck in the rear wheel. Tighten it.'

These words may look so normal and so casual. When we utter such word and when we move away from the spot, as I said, deep down in us we will have a very very special feel that money cannot buy.


Incident 1:

I have my friend Vidhya who used to tell me the below...
'Never donate a rupee or two for a old aged homeless people. If we can afford, why don't we buy them some food or drinks. That would feel great.'
Later, I saw her buying a dinner for a homeless woman. That smile on that unknown woman's face, damn... You know, those are the thing that world needs the most.


That contagious thought grasped me...
Couple of weeks later, a homeless grandma came to me and sought some money. Though I had enough to donate, I bought her a tender coconut.
'Have this' I said and gave her the greeny tiny tender coconut with a straw.
A BRIGHT SMILE SHROUDED HER FACE ALL THROUGH HER WRINKLED SKIN.

Since that incident that took place by early hours, the whole day, I was so happy. I felt so positive and I felt so good about myself.








Incident 2:

I was so held up with my work on a busy day and of course it was a worst day with my mobile crashing out and I was rushing home on a rainy night.
I had a fellow passenger and it was obvious that he hails from some North-East state.
He spoke so good English. Fine English, that was way better from a daily labour.
We spoke, we spoke and went on...

He hails from a poor family, as an eldest son, he left his studies after 12th. Since then, he has been a nomad, working at hotels, construction sites and metal industries across the states of India.

I asked him, 'Why don't you head for home.?'
I know, It was a stupid question. But, I wanted to know how he expresses it.
He said, 'Bro, my siblings are studying. Parents, they are cultivators. I wish I could contribute some breads to my family. So, here I am.'

He was around my age and it was evident that he took his life so cool. May be he confiscated his feeling within him and could have acted as if he was all right.
I had this urge, give him some money...
I asked him how much money he has for a journey for Bangalore.
Surprisingly he had nil bucks in his wallet. And he said that his friend who was sitting at the other end was helping him out for reaching Bangalore.

I did not advise him but I gave him few encouraging words about his guts and contribution for his own bloods somewhere near the mountainous slope of Assam. I offered him few traditional Tamil savouries like groundnut candy and sesame candy. His face was filled with happiness. I gave him some 200 bucks, asked him to use it for food.

He was speechless and astonished. 'I never imagined that a total stranger from thousand kilometres away from home could help me like this.'
I told this incident to none of family members as they would suggest that I was fooled by some tricky man. But, seriously, the joy he had on his heart was so evident.

I shared him my Facebook ID and asserted him that I ll let him know if I come across any opportunities of his interest.

----
We do have some people whom we like less.
If we don't like their company and if we believe that they don't deserve our company, all that we can do is just leave the hall without noise.
Why go argue and fight ? Why aggravate pains ?
Art of leaving is so tough to pursue but too damn good for peace.

One good contribution of yours can let the people around to forget what you WERE and focus upon what you ARE.
SO Here I End This Post By Saying A So Easy Phrase And At The Same Time A So Tough Phrase To Practice.
If you have the power to make someone happy do it the world needs more of that ."

TINSI- A Tale of Metal Hearts

Deepak Karthik | Saturday, June 21, 2014 | Best Blogger Tips

Bob Dylan, a famous American Musician once said, 'What is money?, a man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do.'

Bob Dylan is not alone, here comes my favorite actor Anthony Hopkins. Let's take a look at what Mr.Shining said, 'Passion is the genesis of genius.'
Whoa! MUSCULAR WORDS.


I know a couple of guys with whom I shared the 'Automobile Engineering' classes at SASTRA University, Thanjavur. When you have the passion glowing within, whatever comes your way to prevent you from achieving something shall find its place at graveyard. Similarly, these two guys are most active guys of the whole Mechanical Engineering class as these two boys would always have the answers for any question that our professor asks. So, I had this intuition that these guys gonna pursue something closely associated with Automobiles. As I guessed, the two guys YASH SRIVATSAVA and GOPAL KRISHNA from Uttar Pradesh are pursuing something often branded as 'ROCKET SCIENCE' among our society.

'What they have done?' is a question which should have been the most familiar question for Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg and our own Flipkart's Bansals. Not just them, it ought to be the familiar question for anyone who staples his heart and body to a field he loves most and fights from anything to everything for quenching his dreams.

While watching the Formula 1 racing events, am not sure how many you had this though but I had and I still have it. 'Ferrari, Lotus, Mercedes, Red Bull, Renault.... When shall we witness an Indian firm's name ?.'

Yeah, we do have Force India racing team. Kudos to them for familiarizing the sport in India. But apart from Karun Chandhok and Narain Karthikeyan, how many of our Indian names have surfaced in the event ? how many of our Indian manufacturers names have flashed in our televisions ?

It is not that we do not have the talents but the fact is, our talents are camouflaged by fear of failure, fear for family, and fear about society. Because of such fears, so many Einsteins and so many Rutherfords from India were reduced to ashes by terminating their lives as a peon in some government offices.

Unlike them, Yash and Gopal have initiated TINSI Race Cars for two reasons...
1) It's their passion and they are pursuing it.
2) 
They have the dream to change the way people and even Engineers look at Engineering. As one of my professor Mr.Pugazhendi always quote, 'Engineering is all about planning and execution.'


Here we go, a chit chat with the minds behind TINSI.

1) What is TINSI ?


Well, I hear you. So your thought process is going like this? , 'Even as our roads remain pathetic for commuting with a cycle, are you joking ? Racing cars in India ?. I can watch them in ESPN.'

If Vikram Sarabhai had such thoughts, there would be no ISRO and so no Chandraayan.
If  Abdul Kalam preferred not to take risks but to end up as a boat builder, we would have missed an inspiration.

Sending out a clear message to the society that there is nothing such called rocket science, TINSI was initiated with an aim to familiarize the least spoken topics of automobile and that is 'Racing Cars.'


"To eradicate this misconception, it is required to correctly train the young engineers, who are just going to step into the professional field. At present, even the dedicated Automobile Engineering courses in India are not providing the students with enough information about a lot of things which form the back bone of the entire vehicle behaviour. Modules like Vehicle dynamics, which are major topics of research in UK and Germany, are not discussed in an elaborate manner. This leads to a situation where a modern day student of India becomes an easy prey to the belief that what he/she learns in Engineering School will not be practically used in his/her professional life. It further leads to a lack of enthusiasm towards learning. 
Thus, to arouse among the young engineers, a passion for the real Automotive Engineering, TINSI has been launched. " as quoted by TINSI. 


2) 
In a nutshell, tell us what are you planning to convey through TINSI ?


"TINSI conveys to society and especially young minds to follow their hearts, to pursue something in life without which it is even difficult to breathe, to enjoy your work. A lot of youngsters come to TINSI asking what is good for their future or what will be the scope of the profession they pursue. This is a very serious situation. This kills new thoughts, new initiatives that have capability to take the civilization forward. The fear of failure has been infested so deeply in the hearts of youngsters that they are not ready to make mistakes. TINSI tells them it’s your life go get what you want. TINSI instills in young minds confidence to convert their hobby into their profession. 

TINSI believes that you are successful when your hobby becomes your profession because this journey, which is full of fears and situations that tear you apart, converts you into an invincible force which is ready to face any circumstances even outside your profession. TINSI conveys to youngsters that money and fame are the by-products of the work that you enjoy. Money and fame automatically follow you if you do what you love. "
Yash Srivatsava (Left), Gopal Krishna (Middle) with their beast.


Being a Mechanical Engineer, I am happy to share you a fact...
You know what, many of my Mechanical Enginner friends does not even have the faintest idea of  'How to change a flat tyre when stranded in a road and perhaps, half of them doesn't know HOW TO DRIVE A CAR.' But trust me, they are Mechanical Engineers. So it is evident that there is something very wrong with our Engineering curriculum, there is a difference between playing cricket and reading a book briefing the joyous moments of playing cricket. what we lack here is 'PRACTICAL KNOWLEDGE!.'


3)  
How do you find the education system in India ? Especially the Engineering curriculum ?


"Education system in India since nursery is more syllabus oriented then Student oriented. It focuses more on completion of a particular syllabus in a class, rather then focusing on the development of students. So we think in schools, instead of covering syllabuses, students should be given opportunities to learn about every profession, so that they can get a feel of everything. They should be monitored and motivated towards pursuing the skill they are found best at. This is how you invoke hunger for skills in a kid, who can later become an expert professional. Every expert professional loves what he does and this love can be more passionate if it starts at a young age. How wonderful one will feel, if he/she starts something as a hobby and later forms a career out of it ? 
Therefore degree courses come later, firstly school education has to be changed. If the input (kind of students) to the degree courses will be good, then the things in engineering curriculum or any other degree curriculum will have to change, as weak trees cannot stand intense storms. "


4) 
Five years down the lane, where you see yourself and TINSI ?

"Five years from now we see ourselves having all the technical facilities for Research and Development in the field of Race Car Engineering. We also see ourselves technically sound and experienced to assist Indian Road Car Manufacturers towards implementing our Racing data in road car development, hence enhancing the safety levels of road cars and enhancing their dynamics and performance features, thus making them more accessible.

In parallel we would like to change the way people and even engineers look at engineering, as just a job oriented training. We would like to do that by setting engineers as examples in front of the society, for people to see the real role of an engineer in society building. "


As a classmate and as a person who admired you guys for following your passion, I wish you all the very best for your endeavors. I wish that someday I can proudly say by pointing my fingers at TV screen, 'Those guys standing nearby that bright racing machine and I were classmates.'

I Miss Her !

Deepak Karthik | Saturday, May 03, 2014 | Best Blogger Tips

We are in a relationship for more than half-a-decade by now.
We never had a fight except during the times of troubled internet connection.
She never demanded me a thing, neither she frowned her face.
Of course, we both had struggled a big time while in the period of viral infections.

She nurtured me, she taught me words, she taught me how to write,

And of all, she gave me beautiful and talented friends.
I owe her on a large scale.
The kind of love she had and she have on me is what we call as an unconditional love.

Damn, I was an idiot all these five years.
I expected her to shower me more, I expected her to attract people for me.

I expected her to stay beautiful and stay same as she was in the beginning.
Neither she asked me a question nor refused to act for my commands.


In the midst of my negligence and laxness, she still supports me and acknowledges me.
My love, from my head to toe, I swear in the name of god,
YOU ARE THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME !

You are the reason for what I am today.
You are the reason for the office I hold today.
You are the only person who reflected my vision without being doctored and the soulless soul that helps me to exhibit the few talents of mine.
But today, I am being swayed. I could not able to spend much time with you considering the chemistry we had in the past that envied half the keypad world..

I sincerely miss you.
I will find a way in the coming days to spend my hours for you, to beat out each other's loneliness.
Till then rest my love. Rest !

- I miss you my blog !







----
Beloved fellow bloggers,
My blog is not the lone thing am missing but also the post of yours.
