    Why Open Source Linux Desktop is practically a fail 

    I met a group of people and we had to discuss on open source. I began as usual – Stop using proprietary Windows. Stop stealing software. Embrace Linux, it helps you (after that I told them several examples of how commercial companies are benefiting from open source technologies. All the case studies and examples were stolen from net and distro sites)In that interaction, I rediscovered some facts –

    1. In this social media age, no one cares for the tool but for the work. It dosent make a difference whether a software is free or not; as long as it dosent cost a penny. The end result matters, not the way how you do it.

    2. Piracy isent openly encouraged, but its the least thing cared about.

    3. Commercial Linux distro owners need to have a higher marketing budget then the funds needed to develop the core software. To make this thing works, a community based, unstable software having latest versions is given out free. Tweakers use it and report the bugs, fix things, enhance it and pass it back. This stable software is then inducted into stable desktop and sold as a commercial product. Red Hat has been doing it since 2003 and perheps this is what makes Red Hat to top linux distro list.

    4. People like to use GNU/Linux on servers but they are reluctant to pay a price for getting a software. However, they do spend on training users.

    5. Some distros like Ubuntu are absolutely hell bent on mimicking Windows way of functionality and seriously, its the first instance in 7 years where I have seen a Linux distro crawling on desktop, and well, crashing it..!! Their latest version is hopeless..!

    At the end.

    Open Source is very good sounding concept but a newcomer finds it extremely hard to earn something real fast as compared to those using non open source. You need to have a sure backup plan if Open Source based concept back fires.

    Preaching of the theorotical Open Source concepts like – Free Software, Libre, Open ness etc is all crap, people start yawning after hearing this nonsense for more then 3 minutes. And this is what the Open Source Evangelists do..and make sure people run away from it as far as possible ! People have got real FUD in using open source software, we cant cant claim all FUD’s are artificial or unreal.

    But all is not bad. I would recommend that every newcomer who wants to develop apps in GNU/Linux or wants to work as a network administrator should start using Red Hat software (FC and CentOS). This is true for Indian public, at other places, YMMV. The other prominent players in commercial Linux market are – Suse and Ubuntu. Try this once you feel Red Hat is letting you down.

    The title of this post is somewhat wrong, but I couldent find one better.

      Perhaps a better way is to show them how robust and how fast our Linux systems are. Whenever I even mention how much fun I’m having with Linux to my Windows and Mac friends, they get angry. One reason is that they’re paying $300+ dollars to be held captive by proprietary, corporate software, and the last thing they want to admit is that they’re wrong.

      But while the last ten years have been good for Apple users, they’re now discovering how expensive it is to compute on increasingly closed systems. As for Microsoft, the last decade has been one nightmare after another. Since switching to Linux in 2006, I haven’t looked back.

        Globalization is bringing a lot of money and we are seeing average salaries go up. Now many people can afford to purchase expansive proprietary software, infact i know some people who flaunt expensive OS as a status symbol..!!

        Whoa..the more, the merrier..!

    Tags: , The milkman story   

    Some freak economics a milkman taught me 

    Economics is a very facinating mix of theorotical science and practical art of managing money. Apart from spelling the word economics right, theres very little contribution to world economics from my side..

    until now..

    Few days ago, one interesting bill was attached to our common notepad – It was the milkman bill..Out of utter curiosity, I looked at it and was staggered..!! It read that I had to pay almost 1000/- to the milk man, and the service charges were extra. Service charges in this case was the salary given to the milk delivering boy and some supply chain management costs..

    I just calculated – The milkman gets approx 1000 rupees from my house. He delivers milk to adjoining 50 homes. On an average, a family needs 1 litre of milk everyday, and in Pune, the well known brand costs around 32 rupees a litre. So, in all, it works about 30×32 = Rs 960/- per home. Multiply it with 50 families, and the monthly income of the milkman is – 960×50 = 48000..!! The milkman automatically gets a decent discount from the milk supplier since he purchases them in bulk. The other cost is that of the milkboy who delivers those bags early in the morning..I am not sure how much salary he will fetch, lets assume he gets 2500/- pm. Most of the time that boy needs to invest 2 hours per morning and then continue study or any other activity. That leaves Mr Milkman the amount of almost  47000/- pm. Add to it there is no known and official service tax on doing this.Wow..aint that awesome? Add to it that our milkman does work in a bank apart from delivering milk, so this salary is extra to him…

    Incredible.!!

    I read in papers that many freshers in engineering arent getting jobs and even if they land on one, they have to work as a trainee for well over 1.5 years till they start getting the standard salary. Add to it the cutting edge training costs these engineers invest in.

    From the facts based above, I can safely say that I want to be a Milkman…instead of slogging in front of the computer writing cryptic and buggy software, its better I start something like this..!! Till few years ago, milk delivery man was just another poor mans job..today its turned to be a number one earning service with comparative less stress etc. Of course, even this field might have its own unknown risks, losses, and all that stuff, but did anyone ever look at the strange economy behind the scene??

    I dont know..

    PS  – All figures are indicative, your milage may vary. I am an ignorant and untrained economist, so please forgive me if I make mistakes.. 😉

      Harshad, no doubt that Milkmen are milking money like anything. But is that the only thing attached to it?

      A milkman needs to buy a cow or buffalo. A price which will break even after 2-3 months. Adding to that he needs to develop the customer base which needs lot of marketing cost (though not much considering the company’s marketing cost).

      Also, he needs to buy food for those cows and buffaloes. That will also get subtracted from his earnings. He needs to buy shampoos and soaps for washing those cattle. If the cattle get sick he needs to take them to veterinary doctor adding to the total expenditure and subtracting from the earnings.

      This is not it, he needs to build a shed for them, keep the surrounding clean, milk the cattle (which is in fact the tough job, to milk the cattle).

      If you calculate all these things you will get very restricted surplus. This all accounts for almost Rs. 10,000 monthly (some pluses or some minuses) so what he gets ultimately in hand is around Rs. 38,000.

      But even then the earnings or profit he makes is hefty. But the hard work it needs to carry all these operations is very much. And if you really want to get into this business, you will not be able to perform all these tasks and for that you will have to hire someone who will share your profit.

      And the main thing is this job or business is unstable and volatile. Because if you under-perform (that means if you don’t produce good quality of milk) the house where you are serving will ask you to stop serving them.

      Now considering all these things, you tell me how good this job is.

      @Prasad

      Well, you are partially right in this case.

      The milkman I am talking about dosent maintain cows/buffaloes or goats.

      Instead he maintains a heavy duty refridgerator and purchases milk packets in bulk from Chitale, who in turn maintain the milk supply chain and milk producing machinary.

      Obviously I dont want to be Chitale, as its a very heavy invested business..

      I want to be the local milk man who maintains an important position in milk supply chain, and he is the one who comes in direct contact with end customers.

      The profits or expenditures I mentioned are that of the local milkman and not of Chitale or Katraj or Amul..

    • Prasad Kulkarni 2:40 pm on September 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      OK, but still the profits you have mentioned have some sharing components. The bill of electricity he will get by using Fridge. Then there are other factors like, if he owns a place then fine, but if doesn’t own then the rent is added thing.

      But he still manages to milk hefty profits.

    • Harshad Joshi 2:48 pm on September 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      @Prasad

      Bang on..thats what I am trying ot convey that the milkaman is earning more taxfree profits we can ever imagine..

      Add to the fact that no one ever asks the milkman for discount in milk bottle, say a rupee less, say Rs 31. We should all ask for discount, coz as it is we are going to purchase a guranteed 30 milkbottles from him, arent we supposed to get something in return??

      Shit, this is very dirty politics played all around..! We are wasting money..!

      Save money.

    • subbu 7:47 pm on December 29, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      The MilkMan gets his milk from another supplier. So doesn’t it mean he spends among the 48000 you had mentioned to procure that milk?

      So its not as much profit as it may seem. Even if he gets the milk at 3/4 of its price he is left with 12000 for operations cost. Whatever is leftover of that is his profit.

      I am new to this industry. I only started weeks ago and I can tell you that this is a rewarding business for two reasons; it can be and is for me connected to the sustainable agriculture movement today, and second reason; it is lucrative if you want to sell and market and are good at it. I happen to live in one of the most lucrative counties in the USA. And I project that this business first year with only myself can earn $220,000. That is within a 15 mile radius and with 1-2 towns. I plan to move onto the other towns in my county then into Manhattan, New York. we will train other people to be their own distributors. The Milkman Company will take care of marketing, some of the sales jobs, buying power, product knowledge, and other office administrations.

      Watch for us in the industry. and watch for our Milkman delivery trucks. These same opportunities can exist for entrepreneurs in other regions of the State, the USA, and globally.

      Thank you.

    Tags: N1H1, , Sharad Pawar, Suresh Kalmadi, Swine flue   

    Swine flue in Pune, India, some reasons and questions 

    Everything is justified.

    However, India is more prone to any kind of epidemics because of the inherent unclean habits the common people have.

    Add to it the careless attitude of people who actually are supposed to work on complex issues. The recent epidemic wouldent have had been so grave if the airport authorities would have done a more strict check of the people coming from abroad..what did they do? Just filled up a form saying that we are safe..some infected blokes slipped in the city, mixed with people and today, after 10 lives gone, we are wondering from where did it all start..!!

    Nuts..isent it??

    And one more thing..

    This swine flue isent a joke anymore we sit and analyse it esp the punekar way..

    Some families have lost their children, working men. This loss cant be justified. At this point of time, we all should support them. We need to realize the gravity of this issue.

    Lets not take it like ‘just-another-thing’

    Ignorance is a deadly sin, and we are paying for it.

    Some things that came in this light

    1. Where is Sharad Pawar, the head of National Disaster Management Committee which was set in Mumbai 2005 floods? I think the old guy needs to divert his attention from ICC to India. People are dying, food is becoming expensive and this guy..what is he doing??

    2. Where is Suresh Kalmadi? This man is invisible since the Deepak Mankar incident, and even during the swine flu epidemic, he hasent come across to punekars? Is this what we have elected him for?

    3. Is this a plot of a foreign power to disrupt the Indian software industry??

    4. The CM of MH is a MBA, he is supposed to have knowledge of how to manage things..but he missed it completely. Confused, Ignorant and Pathetic.. Asshok Chavan should sit in his house …

    5. Dont get out of home for at least 4 days.

      The lesson learnt from Swine flue is – keep clean and make your city clean & green. Every where you can see lot of garbage particlarly in common places of Bhopal and other medium size city. This is a major havoc as compared to other contagious diseases in India. Most of the persons/localites are irresponsible towards thier surrounding environment.

    TRAI okays net telephony in India 

    The Telecom regulator in India, TRAI on Monday allowed ISPs to offer unrestricted internet telephony services, a move that will further boost competition in the domestic long distance segment and lower STD tariffs.

    “It is envisaged that customers will ultimately benefit from cost effective and innovative internet telephony service.

    These recommendations will put Indian telecom sector in tune with global trends. The grey market tendencies shall be curtailed,” TRAI said in a statement.

    As per the TRAI recommendations, the STD service providers would be connected to ISPs through public internet for the purpose and the two service providers would have mutual agreement for the same.

    The move will permit calls from personal computers to fixed line and mobile phones. Currently, a voice call can travel between two computers but not from a mobile or a fixed phone. This is expected to open huge channels of revenues for Internet Service Providers (ISPs).

    The Telecom Engineering Centre (TEC), a technical arm of Department of Telecom, will work out the number plan for the ISPs to enable them to offer telephone services.

    “Telephone numbers from identified blocks shall be allocated to ISPs, Unified Access Service Providers, BasicService Providers and Cellular Mobile Service Providers for internet telephony,” TRAI said.

    With a view to make internet telephony secure, TRAI said, all ISPs interested to provide unrestricted internet telephony would install “Lawful Interception” equipments. Usually, that would mean that the government or law enforcement agencies will be able to monitor anyone, good to prevent terrorist conversations, but potentially seen as a invasion on privacy..Further, voice grade communication requires strict QoS control and it also needs good broadband penetration among people..Given the policy of calling 256 kbps as broadband in India, I doubt whether there will be real mass appeal to this scheme. Lets see..

    Beijing Olympics 2008

    The Beijing Olympics 2008 ceremony has kicked off and officially, for next 20 days, we are going to see an exciting series of old records broken, new records being set. Top leaders from almost 80 countries are visiting Beijing for this extravaganza. Here’s a joke thats being passed here in India.

    Dubya, the George Bush Jr, who is enjoying his few days as American President, is visiting China as a guest at the Beijing Olympics ceremony, where he is supposed to deliver a small speech.

    He’s handed over a speech letter by his secretary. Dubya goes through it, and begins…

    “O…O……O….O…”

    The secretary says ‘ Sir, plese turn the page, thats not ‘O’. Thats the official Olympic logo. Your speech’s on the next page..’

    Good Grief 

    This heartbreak hangover has continued for fairly long time, I mean its more then a week I havent been able to pick my spirits up. In one point of view, everything appears as a dead end, especially in this fast globalized ultramodern age, with so much technology and gadgets around, who would bother to wait and listen? Its such a fast paced world. Friendship made and broken in seconds, split seconds without batting an eyelid, On the other hand, the mind, the frenziness of emotions and feelings tell an otherwise story. Whom to really care for? Inspite of technology, the communication and understanding gap still prevails between people. This comes to notice specifically when one apologizes to a girl by making use of email/sms/chat combo. Even a guy advised me to meet her and sort it out. Boy, I had that courage and might, then probably I wouldent even have these bad feelings get into my way. This is Karma, we attach our emotions with so many people really without knowing the consequence of what will happen in future. Some blokes I know are pretty calculated individuals, they do not allow emotions to get in their way, call it a professional approach of sort.

    This incident taught me many things.

    1. No matter how much rich your dad is, a gurl will first look at you and your capabilities. Atleast the one who analyses you for a long time dosent get impressed by the prizes you won, she looks at the job and the yearly package. No other impression ever works.. 😦

    2. Surrounded by technology, we might get a feel of being a technocrat or whatever, but primitive feelings like emotions, rage, jealousy still exist. By no means we can avoid it. The forms and definations of ego might have changed, but it still continues to hurt as hell.

    3. Love hurts. In every age Love hurts. It has hurted me a lot. I dont know if I am mature enough to understand its true meaning, but the seen consequence makes me wonder – I am freaky enough to be loved?I am an equally loved and hated guy, I remember most of those occasions when I was hated..

    Gosh darn those status lines on my Gtalk – Love and Hate are one and all, sacrifice soon turns to revenge..

    A girl may not find these lines romantic enough, especially when shes commited to someone else. She will take it as an ominous sign of flirting, and bang, thats the end of all relations..no amount of apologies work, meeting is impossible, no truce…no peace, direct attack…what else??

    4. If you have been hurt before in relations, its wisdom to avoid complications in first place itself. If any jilted lover is reading this, I would advise – Avoid relations that do not exist. Example – A fragile relation that occured during a meeting over in social networking tools like MySpace, Orkut, FaceBook etc. These relations are never serious, they do not have any name, Modern pundits call it cyber relations, I dont have any good name for it. I mean its crazy concept to even think of attaching a name and emotions to a thing that exists in electronic world. Its true that sentimental fools like me are fond of attaching their feelings to the most ridiculous and insignificant things that exist in this world, its difficult at times. Here, every occasional hi, hello is a symbol of friendship, and every relation is apparantly a permanant one. Madness in all respect….I am a mad person who has got a provan track record of being in madly with love with girls I know I would never get to see, to touch, to talk and so on…This is my flaw, and I seriously need to get over it. My ex girl friend said that she avoided me because I did not had a ‘pure’ friendship with her. If I know that saying hello to her in wee hours of morning can spell as disaster I am suffering from, I would have avoided it. I am going to avoid it all togather throughout my life. Never send a girl an sms that can spoil your party. Controversies are never comfortable…

    5. Even if sacrifice may turn to revenge, you may not see the face who would say ‘I love you, I will kill you, but I will love you forever’ (Sobs…Sobs…..Tears…Sniff) I didnt 😦 Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa…….

    I will update this if my girl replies back to me, else think this as the end of this post (and my spoilt relation as well ) Hey Girl, dont mind, I will still continue loving you..Pure love knows no limits   😦   (Sic..Snifff…)

      Hi Adi. I met her. I apologized using all the words I knew till today, but she didnt like my new role of a jilted lover. I asked her if our relations would be right as they were earlier, she indirectly said ‘No.’ If this wasent enough, as per expectations, she informed me that shes getting married soon…I could do nothing more but nevertheless, I congratulated her. That was the only option I had, nothing more we can do. Relations are a crazy thing.

      Age of Lonliness is bad enough, and someone telling you that you are lonly is more bad then ever….

    Sanjay Dutt sentenced to 6 years imprisonment 

    Sanjay Dutt, the film actor of Mumbai based film industry and one of the accused in the 1993 Mumbai Bomb blasts has been sentenced to imprisonment of 6 years by the special TADA court which is giving final touches to the case..11 people have been given death sentences, while 9 have been given life inprisonment. There are several aspects to this case, where many common people, especially the ones who lost their near ones in the 93 blasts feel that the accused should be meted severs punishment, and going by the current scene, it can be said that the court is doing a right job.

    Meanwhile, Sanjay Dutt too has many supporters who believe that he is innocent…thats the sade situation in this case..Sanjay Dutt should have been given more harsh sentence, but because of his friendly ties with the curent ruling party, the Indian National Congress, there can be a possibility of some authorities to maintain a soft corner to him. The Bollywood, the hindi film industry always supports Sanjay Dutt, considering a fact that a lot of money has been invested in his films, however, I hope that Sanjay Dutt gets to spend 6 years in jail. He totally deserves more then that, but because of great Indian democracy(rather a circus),judges have a pressure on them…considering the fact that media has got a lot of hyperinterest in campaigning for Sanjay Dutt. Arseholes..!!!

    Dawood Ibrahin, the Pakistani based international terrorist is another wanted in the Mumbai 93 blast case. I read that the FBI is warning Pakistan to hand over Dawood Ibrahim to them, now its interesting to observe what thaings are going to take place in the future..

    A practical approach for blocking Orkut and saving trouble 

    From the past few days theIndian media is in all sorts of frenzy, displaying the news and reports telling that Indian government has instructed CERT India to ‘ban’ Orkut access primarily because,

    1. Indian authorities believe that Orkut allowes creation of flame communities that pack enough ammunation to set cities on fire and a punch that hurts the fragile ego of icon worshippers.

    2. Orkut is a place where loners waste their bandwidth hunting for girls, their personal details, a photograph or pieces of vital info.

    3. Orkuts a facinating place where you can abuse anyone, yes anyone, ranging from George Dubya Bush to the local administration without the fear of getting in line of fire. Although too much abusing or ranting can lead to your profile or community being marked as fake. But why bother , you can create plenty of fake accounts.

    4. Orkut is also a place where one can secretly plan their next rave party without the cops noticing it.

    Actually, I am not sure that this is what the government or authorities think of, but these all activites are being carried out on Orkut. No doubt about it. And I also know that the democratic government of India will try as little as possible to ‘ban’ it, afterall, the govt has so many daunting tasks ahead of them, be it the election of new president after Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, the Chinese theat claims over Arunachal Pradesh, the rising value of ruppee against the US dollor(Huh, isent this thing funny? The rise of ruppee against dollor is extremely conducive to the booming Indian economy, but is a warning bell for the cheap service industry that is the home of US BPOs etc. Strange ways of economy. What to lose and what to keep?)

    On top of it, people get mad each time they discover that Orkut is being misused by sadistic outfits for achieving their targets. Orkut certainly gives a nice facility to create various groups and read a wide audience, but is it vitally necessary to get involved in Orkut to a level where we find it difficult to communication without the digital network? I mean the analog social network, the real one is much more good option.

    Some reasons for Orkuts wide misuse

    1. It allows creation of fake profiles and hate communities. Although theres provision for reporting it as bogus, the procedure isent foolproof. It can work either ways. Using this facility, someone can report a persons profile as bogus, even though that individual may be posting the truth. Who is to decide that the validity and quality of contents posted are in interest of community or no? Tough job, AI hasent reached this height as of now.

    2. People have to learn to exist in digital world. Even if the digital world is limited to a few dark servers placed on unknown datacenters, the impact they cause on real lifes can be damaging. It cannot be blamed on any digital network. People carry their personality, their good, bad attributes, imperfections, ideologies where ever they go. When this happens, usually theres trouble, leading to unstability.

    Inspite of everything, Orkut wont be ‘banned’, no one except the Chinese govt has the courage to ‘ban’ Google, but I still think that Orkut needs to be ‘blocked’ in offices, corporations, at place of work, school, colleges, government sections, public places etc. Doing this will be more feasible. Majority of well known companies block access to Orkut site, the reason is very simple – Dont want to distract the employees attention from work, and dont want to get into any legal trouble because of any employees miscreant activies.

    In schools and colleges, we go to study and not surf the web. Its common sense. We dont want to expose students to ill effects of bad company.

    So, that leaves us to homes. Yes, at home, we are free to do  anything. Access Orkut from your home.

    Moral of the story – Orkut cannot be ‘banned’ in India but it certainly can be ‘blocked’ by using proxy servers. Any digital social network can be a great tool to explore the world around us, but till the time we dont find a common unified way of understanding the ‘real’ world, we might face these problems forever.

    And as usual, as far as I am concerned, I personally feel that there are lot of other problems in this world that need a top priority attention example – Global Warming, Rise of terrorist outfits etc. It makes little sense to quarrel and argue over a damm freaky Orkut.

    Can Yamaha and Bajaj come togather in India? 

    After Kawasaki, could a Yamaha-Bajaj alliance be in the offering? While loss-ridden Yamaha doesn’t deny the possibility, it is giving the Indian market a last shot.Yamaha plans to put in another Rs 800 crore and may churn out a 250 cc bike at the next Auto Expo.In the pipeline, is to create a niche market in the 200 to 250 cc category. Yamaha is also exploring the possibility of hitting the market with high-end performance bikes.

    Inpsite of six tough, loss-ridden years, Japan’s Yamaha refuses to exit India. Denying the reports, Yamaha’s new Managing Director, T Ishikawa, better known as the man who turned around Yamaha’s Thai operations says the company is in the process of realigning its India strategy.  He was quoted as  “When I joined in Thailand, things were just like what they are in India. Cost and features is what they looked at then i introduced unique models , created niche market. All we did was tried to sell lifestyle not just product.”

    So, its official now, Yamaha is not exiting the Indian market. In fact, they have adopted a new startegy for Indian market – they are pumping in Rs 800 crore over the next four years and will ramp up the capacity from the existing 3 lakh units to 10 lakh units by 2010.

    While Yamaha is giving India another shot, the market is abuzz with rumours of a possibility of a Bajaj – Yamaha alliance. While the company has not denied a possible tie-up, the timing may be bit premature.

    The other company producing hi-end bikes in India is Hero Honda with its Karizma.

      Yamaha – Bajaj alliance is interesting…
      I always thought Yamahas and Hondas should bring their 200CC+ bikes instead of competing with TVSs and Bajajs in 125cc and 150cc categories…

    • Harshad Joshi 6:34 am on March 14, 2007 Permalink | Reply

      Actually, the strategy of introducing 100-125 cc bikes is to consolidate the position among the common masses, which has got a majority of market share;almost 88%. Its clear that common consumers do not want a fuel hungry-yet-sporty attractive bike, because petrol costs are higher in India and the price keeps on fluctuating. Besides, the Indian roads are a challenge for any tyre company. We dont want to see accidents due to tyres. The Indian traffic is one more biiig challenge. It would be an utter waste if you have a 400 cc bike, but you cannot ride it to the fullest, simply because, we do not have appropriate roads for it..

      So even if Yamaha has the capacity to bring out a 200 or even 400 cc bike, it dosent do so, fearing the loss of market to other players. Note -Yamaha is numero uno in MotoGP.
      😛

      On the other hand, we see Bajaj business flourishing in 150-180 cc catagory, but Bajaj bikes have got poor pollution control. But because its the only player in that feild, we feel its #1.

    • Nadir 6:27 pm on March 24, 2007 Permalink | Reply

      It upsets me to see that the Government makes the import of 500 cc and above motorcycles, such an expensive proposition. One needs only to look at all the offerings in India to know that no Indian manufacturer is going to invest in a 300 cc and above bike anytime soon – they had not ventured out of the 100 cc – 150cc area for so many years until Bajaj brought out the Pulsar – then things changed for indian bikers.
      But why not permit (at a low duty) the import of bikes above 500 cc ?!?! Lower down i can understand shielding Indian manufacturers from Chinese competition or Japanese technology – but with certain criterion in place (quality etc cause one does not want crappy Chinese motorcycles flooding our markets in ANY cc ) why not let 500 cc bikes and above from Harley, Ducatti . Triumph, Bmw, Japanese 3 and other quality performance machines come in at a regular consumer goods duty of 25 % . This would make most high powered bikes available between the capacity of 500 cc – 900cc available to us in the 1.5 – 5 lakh bracket and would spring out a whole new market and industry

      Absolutely. If a small player like Kinetic could import Knocked down units of Aquila and Comet why not Yamaha. Its just a question of willingness. When there is a will there is a way. Yamaha is still riding on the glory of the RX100 least realising they are losing some good custmers by not getting the latest offerings from the mother Company. YAMAHA please remember there is nothing like a good customer to get you the best publicity!

      Please get your act together and lets see some good bikes on the Indian roads. Hey, and don’t worry about the road conditions leave that to us.

    Pune rural police crack a rave party 

    Update on 6 Oct 2008

    Vishwas Nangre Patil  on early Monday raided a rave party at a pub in Juhu area and detained 240 young men and women after seizing a large quantity of drugs.

    According to a police official, the raid at Mumbai 72 Degree East, yielded over 100 tablets of ecstasy drugs and other narcotics like heroine, LSD and cocaine.

    The official said that a filmmaker is one of the co-owners of the pub. That film maker is Mr Shakti Kapoor.

    Among the detained include son of a Bollywood actor, 40 young women and a couple of foreign nationals.

    Eight drug dealers who were present on the premises have been arrested.

    अमली पदार्थांच्या नशेत व मद्याच्या धुंदीत “रेव्ह पार्टी’मध्ये झिंगलेल्या सुमारे २८९ जणांना जिल्हा पोलिसांनी आज पहाटे सिंहगड पायथ्याजवळ छापा घालून पकडले. त्यात प्रामुख्याने तरुण-तरुणींसह उच्चभ्रूंचा समावेश असून, तीन परदेशी “डीजे’ व पाच परदेशी नागरिकांचाही या कारवाईत समावेश आहे. …..
    खास धूळवडीनिमित्त आयोजित करण्यात आलेल्या या “पार्टी’ची निमंत्रणे एका संकेतस्थळाद्वारे; तसेच “ऑर्कुट’ व “एसएमएस’द्वारे पोचविण्यात आली होती.

    दिल्ली, मुंबई, अहमदाबाद, बंगळूर, चेन्नई, चंडीगड, ठाण्यासह पुण्यातील विद्यार्थी, “आयटी’ व्यावसायिक, बीपीओ व कॉल सेंटरचे कर्मचारी, दोन हवाई सुंदरी, धनाढ्य व्यावसायिक, खासगी कंपन्यांतील बड्या अधिकाऱ्यांची मुले आदी पार्टीत सहभागी झाली होती. अनेक जण या पार्टीसाठी विमानाने आल्याचे त्यांच्याकडे सापडलेल्या तिकिटांवरून आढळले. पोलिसांनी ताब्यात घेतलेल्यांमध्ये प्रामुख्याने युवकांचा भरणा आहे. त्याशिवाय पुणे, पिंपरी-चिंचवड परिसर व ठाणे परिसरातील परप्रांतीय विद्यार्थीही मोठ्या संख्येने आले होते. पोलिसांनी पहाटे ताब्यात घेतल्यावर सकाळी दहानंतर त्यांची नशा उतरली व नंतरच त्यांची नावे समजू शकली. पोलिसांनी एकूण २५१ तरुण व २९ तरुणींना ताब्यात घेतले आहे.

    ही पार्टी आयोजित केल्याच्या आरोपावरून एकूण नऊ जणांना अटक करण्यात आली आहे. सूत्रधार ध्रुव पवन कौशल (वय २२, रा. निवेदिता टेरेस, वानवडी) व परमजितसिंग हरचरणसिंग ब्रार (वय २७, रा. नॅन्सी गार्डन, वानवडी) यांना अटक झाली आहे. जागामालक रामदास चंद्रकांत हगवणे (रा. डोणजे), शरद मुलोत शंकर (रा. अंधेरी, मुंबई), शिवेंद्रू प्रभातकुमार गुप्ता, स्टीफन एर्विन मुल्लर, ख्रिस्तोफर (दोघे रा. जर्मनी), शिलार्ण अच्युत वझे (वय २४, रा. जुहू), सिमृत हरीश सिल्मली (वय २४, रा. वरळी, मुंबई) यांना अमली पदार्थांच्या विक्री व त्यासाठी मदत केल्याच्या आरोपावरून अटक झाली आहे. या “पार्टी’मागे संघटित टोळी कार्यान्वित आहे का, याचाही पोलिस तपास करीत आहेत. पॅलेस्टाईनचे तीन, जर्मनीचे दोन व इराणचे तीन नागरिक या पार्टीत सापडले.

    घटनास्थळावरून पोलिसांनी १७ चिलीम, १०० ग्रॅम चरस, अमली पदार्थांच्या “कॅप्सूल’ व पावडर, ३०० टीन बिअर, म्युझिक सिस्टीम व मोठ्या प्रमाणात अमली पदार्थांचा साठा जप्त केला आहे. काही अमली पदार्थांची रासायनिक प्रयोगशाळेतून खात्री झाल्यावर ते कोणत्या प्रकारचे आहेत हे निष्पन्न होईल, अशी माहिती जिल्हा अधीक्षक विश्‍वास नांगरे-पाटील व अतिरिक्त अधीक्षक प्रवीण पाटील यांनी दिली. पुणे पोलिसांच्या अमली पदार्थविरोधी पथकाचे प्रमुख निरीक्षक शेषराव सूर्यवंशी यांनी आर्थिक गुन्हे विभागाचे उपायुक्त सुनील फुलारी यांना ही घटना कळविली. श्री. फुलारी यांनी श्री. नांगरे यांच्याशी काल रात्री संपर्क साधला.

    श्री. नांगरे, श्री. पाटील यांच्यासह १५ अधिकारी, दहा महिला कर्मचारी व ८० कर्मचाऱ्यांच्या पथकाने साध्या वेशात पहाटे दोन वाजून दहा मिनिटांनी छापा घातला. छापा घालण्यापूर्वी तयारीचा भाग म्हणून पोलिस वेशांतर करून सुमारे अर्धा तास “पार्टी’मध्ये सहभागी झाले. त्यानंतर सर्व पथकांनी एकाच वेळी कारवाई केली. त्या वेळी ४५ मोटारी व २९ दुचाकीही पोलिसांनी ताब्यात घेतल्या.

    या पार्टीसाठी प्रवेश शुल्क होते. प्रवेशासाठी “कार्ड’ तयार करण्यात आले होते. एक संकेतस्थळ, ऑर्कुट व “एसएमएस’द्वारे गेल्या आठवड्यापासून संपर्क साधून पार्टीचे आमंत्रण दिले जात होते. ताब्यात घेतलेल्या सर्वांना सात पोलिस वाहनांतून जिल्हा अधीक्षक कार्यालयात आणण्यात आले. छापा घालून पोलिस परतत असताना पहाटेपर्यंत या पार्टीसाठी लोक येत होते; मात्र छाप्याची माहिती कळताच त्यांची वाहने माघारी फिरत होती.

    या प्रकरणी हवेली पोलिस ठाण्यात गुन्हा दाखल झाला आहे. ताब्यात घेतलेल्या व्यक्तींवर अमली पदार्थांचे सेवन केल्याच्या आरोपावरून गुन्हा दाखल करण्यात येणार आहे, असे श्री. नांगरे यांनी सांगितले.

    “शायनी’ निसटली
    या पार्टीमध्ये “शायनी’ नावाची महिला “कॅलिफोर्निया ड्रॉप्स’च्या दीड हजार बाटल्या (आंतरराष्ट्रीय बाजारपेठेतील किंमत तीन कोटी रुपये) घेऊन येणार आहे, असे पोलिसांना समजले होते. त्यासाठी पोलिसांनी सापळा रचला होता; मात्र पोलिसांचा छापा पडल्याचे समजल्यावर ती महिला तिकडे फिरकली नाही. तिच्यावर आयर्लंडमध्ये अमली पदार्थ विक्रीचे तीन गुन्हे आहेत, अशी माहिती समजली असून, त्याबाबत सध्या खातरजमा सुरू असल्याचे पोलिसांनी सांगितले.

    “रेव्ह पार्टी’ म्हणजे काय?
    एका ठराविक ठिकाणी विशिष्ट दिवशी “पार्टी’ आयोजित केली जाते. शुल्क आकारून फक्त निमंत्रित किंवा काही ठराविक व्यक्तींनाच प्रवेश दिला जातो. त्या ठिकाणी दारू, बिअरची खुलेआम विक्री होते; तसेच अमली पदार्थही विकले जातात. या पार्ट्यांत येणारा वर्ग प्रामुख्याने अमली पदार्थांचे सेवन करण्यासाठी येतो. त्या वेळी “डीजे’च्या मदतीने संगीताची धूम सुरू असते. रात्री अकराला सुरू होणारी पार्टी सकाळी सातपर्यंत चालते. अशा प्रकारच्या पार्ट्या, दिल्ली, मुंबईत नियमितपणे होतात. मुंबईतील “अक्‍सा’ बीच त्यासाठी कुख्यात आहे. पुण्यातही सिंहगड पायथा परिसरात नुकतीच अशी एक पार्टी झाल्याची माहिती पोलिसांना मिळाली आहे.

    पुण्याला अमली पदार्थांचा विळखा?

    • गेल्या वर्षी ऑगस्टमध्ये ऑस्ट्रेलियाला पाठविण्यासाठीचे दोन कोटींचे चरस पुण्यात जप्त झाले होते.
    • जानेवारी २००७ मध्ये टेक्‍सासला पाठविण्यासाठीचे अडीच कोटींचे हेरॉइन पुण्यातून जप्त झाले होते.
    • त्याशिवाय पणजीमध्ये नुकतेच पंधरा कोटी रुपयांचे हेरॉइन पकडण्यात आले. ते पुणे- पणजी बसमधून जप्त करण्यात आले होते.
    • पुण्यातील काही पब, कोरेगाव पार्क भागातील हॉटेले व उच्चभ्रूंची ऊठबस असलेली हॉटेले, क्‍लबमध्ये अमली पदार्थांच्या खरेदी-विक्रीचे व्यवहार होत असल्याच्या पोलिसांकडे तक्रारी आल्या आहेत.
    • केंद्रीय उत्पादनशुल्क विभागाच्या अधिकाऱ्यांच्या मतानुसार, अमली पदार्थांची पुण्यातून मोठ्या प्रमाणात वाहतूक होते. मुंबई, बंगळूर व दिल्लीसाठी येथून “माल’ जातो व “येतो’. त्यासाठी सध्या “कुरिअर’ व्यवसायासह अन्य ठिकाणी अधिकाऱ्यांचे लक्ष. पुणे हे “ट्रान्स्पोर्ट स्टेशन’.

    पुण्याचे बदलते स्वरूप
    पुण्याचे स्वरूप बदलत आहे, त्याचे प्रतिबिंब या पार्टीत दिसून आले. शिक्षण, नोकरी, व्यवसाय आदींसाठी परराज्यांतून येथे आलेले विद्यार्थी, युवक बेकायदेशीर कृत्यांत सहभागी होत असल्याचे आढळून येत आहे. माहिती तंत्रज्ञान कंपन्या, कॉल सेंटर, बीपीओ, खासगी कंपन्या येथे काम करणाऱ्या युवकांना मोठ्या प्रमाणात वेतन मिळते. पैसे भरपूर मिळाल्यावर काही जण वाईट सवयींकडे आकृष्ट होतात, असे दिसून येत असल्याचे पुणे पोलिसांच्या आर्थिक गुन्हे विभागाचे उपायुक्त सुनील फुलारी यांनी नमूद केले.

    If we observe the list, we will find a number of people well inside their thirties. Fast growing IT and service industry has no doubt increased the income of many, but at the same time, has caused the ‘evil’ elements of quick money to rise..The number of girls caught have raised various social issues that need to be addressed and resolved soon.

    Actually, the disturbing fact found in this crackdown was the use of digital social networking tool – Orkut, which was used as a means of communication between peer groups. According to me, now its high time that Google bring an Indianized version of Orkut example – http://www.orkut.co.in which will function mostly for Indian users and will comply by Indian legal codes.

    A brief Update March 7, 2007 – Majority of the convicts have been bailed out, while some have been booked under illegal drug trafficing and various other charges. It was not very good to see that arrogant parents and their equeally arrogant idiots were blaming the ‘media’ for the damage..Hmph…what a bunch of jerks…

    The latest in this case on 7 April 07

    रेव्ह पार्टी’मध्ये अटक करण्यात आलेल्या २८८ जणांपैकी २४९ जणांनी अमली पदार्थांचे सेवन केल्याचे त्यांच्या वैद्यकीय तपासणी अहवालात जिल्हा पोलिसांना आढळून आले आहे. एका जाहीर कार्यक्रमात जिल्हा पोलिस अधीक्षक विश्‍वास नांगरे पाटील यांनी याबाबत माहिती दिली. ते म्हणाले, “”रेव्ह पार्टी’मध्ये सहभागी होऊन अमली पदार्थांचे सेवन केल्याच्या आरोपावरून चार मार्चला सिंहगड पायथ्याजवळ २८८ जणांना अटक झाली होती. त्यातील आठ-नऊजण अमली पदार्थ विक्रेते होते. त्यामुळे त्यांच्यावर गंभीर स्वरूपाच्या कलमांन्वये गुन्हा दाखल करण्यात आला आहे.”त्यावेळी पकडण्यात आलेल्या युवक-युवतींनी अमली पदार्थांचे सेवन केले आहे किंवा नाही, याची खात्री करण्यासाठी त्यांची विशेष वैद्यकीय तपासणी करण्यात आली होती. त्याचे अहवाल आज मिळाले आहेत. त्यानुसार २८८ जणांपैकी २४९ जणांनी अमली पदार्थांचे सेवन केले होते, असे आढळून आले आहे. त्यांच्यावर कायद्यानुसार पुढील कारवाई होईल, असे त्यांनी सांगितले.

    The drug test gave positive results for 249 convicts out of the 288 arrested. Thats quite high percentage. Hmm..tough deal, lifes isent a joke. 😛

      Yes, definitely this mass communication(orkut) was used wrongly.And definitely muddled our pune. But we can’t held any site responsible for this as every thing have two faces like coin. Its only upto people how they are going to make use of this? And then only the endresult can tell whether it proves a boon or a curse for the society.

      Harshad, Rave Party is wrong english, theres no such thing as a Rave Party. It is a Rave and something like a party. Anyway its sad to know that you think the parents are a bunch of Jerks, because if you do some research on what the Media and Police found 1500 bottles of phenyl hydrocholride? do you know what that is….its no drug, check the contents of a bottle called ikul available at any medical shop, its no drug.

      im refering to the article that can be found here fractalenlightenment.blogspot.com/2007/03/holi-festival-of-spring.html

      Another thing, when the whole of India is drinking bhang, which is made out of ganja and is illegal, the government chooses to arrest 200 kids who are doing the same thing.

      So next time Harshad, put in some research before you give us your opinion.

      Cheers!

      Maybe you need to exercise your grey cells a lil’ more and observe that the 250-9 convicts were real jerks..the ignorant jerks, who do not have a common sense and beleive that they are innocent..

      They arent innocent..they are ignorant. Ignorance is a deadly crime. The ignorance of attending a party which wasent legal..ignorance of not knowing who the organizer was and what was his background..ignorance of the fact that the place where the party was supposed to be conducted is an agriculture land, where any other bussiness,other then farming is banned by law??

      Ha..this is a best exmple I have ever seen having so many ignorant jerks around..Serves them good. 😀

      Your statement in the previous comment – ‘Another thing, when the whole of India is drinking bhang, which is made out of ganja and is illegal, the government chooses to arrest 200 kids who are doing the same thing.’ is based upon completely primitive assumptions, which may not be true in all cases of special reason.

      For primates supporting rave party
      I observed that there is a certain forum, full of unworthy apes, who have put on loud and time wasting arguments trying to explain me the stuff of rave party. Who cares to read all the crap??

      However, its interesting to note and observe that there are so many people in this world still living in a stone age primitive mentality, seeking out solace in drugs and a crap termed as music to escape or get a break from the real world problems…Scared of reality and afraid to face work pressure Whatever… Mentally retarded jerks. 😛

      Now for the final thing
      1. Post up comment that shows your ignorance,idiotness and arrogance, it will get marked as spam the next moment.
      2. Send me foolish mails, I will definately mark it as spam.
      3. Dont forget – Spamming is not a good thing. You have been warned.

      Banning / Suppressing orkut is not a solution. Things don’t work that way. The right solution is to punish the drug consumers and peddlers themselves, heavily. The justification for that is simple. If orkut goes down, some other site will come up. What will you then? Ban it too? But if people know that there are serious consequences to drug consumption and peddling, they will keep away from it.

      Also, I will agree with the bhang point – allowing its consumption its wrong. Just because lots of people consume bhang, doesn’t mean that it is correct.

      Several examples where people think that when everyone does something, it must be right-
      a) Sati (sure, before it was banned by the Brits, many thought it was right – now we all understand why it was wrong)
      b) Sealing drive in Delhi (just because everyones building illegaly, doesn’t mean that its correct)

      We must identify what the real problem is and not get carried away in hype and rhetoric. For example, the real problem aren’t the plastic bags littering our streets. The real problem is the correct disposal of these bags. Banning plastics was the quick (read stupid) solution.

      Finally the right to express oneself is one of the rights we value the most.

      Thanks,
      Rohit Kulshreshtha

      I agree with Rohit Bhai…. one hundred percent!

      In the similar lines, since evry body now thinks that drug consumers should be punished, it does not mean that IT IS RIGHT 🙂

      the right to express oneself is one of the rights we value the most…EXACTLY.
      “The right to do one’s chosen action, provided that its not going to affect anybody else’s lyf” is also one such rights. Wat say Harshad Bhai…?

      How many are affected by this rave? How many have inconveniences becoz of this rave?

      It’s a red herring on the cops part to raid the rave when there are several illegal activities to be addresses in mumbai-pune circle !!!

      “The right to do one’s chosen action, provided that its not going to affect anybody else’s lyf”

      In many cases that would be true. ‘Others’ would mind their own business. In this case, it does affect ‘other’ people’s lives. Drug addicts become slaves to their habit. When they need a dose, they need it bad. If the urge isn’t satisfied, they may go to any extent to fulfill it. Consumption of drugs can become the cause of violence, due to disinhibition. Hence, it is not as simple as minding one’s own business.

      “How many are affected by this rave? How many have inconveniences becoz of this rave?”

      Plenty. Just knowing that there are drug peddlers around would be enough to worry parents of teenagers. After all, which parent wants to see their child throw away his / her life for drugs? If India is shining, teenagers in India should take the opportunity and ride the wave.

      “It’s a red herring on the cops part to raid the rave when there are several illegal activities to be addresses in mumbai-pune circle !!!”

      – Another case of “Its OK, others are doing it too.”. An illegal activity is illegal. Period. It needs to be checked and punished.

      Tell me, at what point do we actually demand change?

      Hi,

      I dont understand people always talk about banning the sites, internet and source of information. Why dont they understand, there are lots of good websites and communities available on the internet and orkut. Do they think, they are god?

      Remember one thing, world changes always, there are bad things also and good things both. Bad things will go and good things will always remain.

      That is the life. so be patients. Banning orkut is not solution.

      The same thing with drugs. If you search, you will see almost every single things will have their drawbacks if you use it irresponsibliy. even the god.

      In my opinion, We need to develop the culture to respect the people and communities.

      i hear comparisons between bhang, as you put it, and a rave party and i am dismayed. firstly, bhang is not made from ganja as someone sems to think. it is ganja. or cannabisativa to be precise.
      secondly, it is not a hallucinogen, it is not habit forming. it has a pharmocological efect that crosses the blood brain barrier intact, but causes no physiological dependence. something like lsd. therefore, it does not qualify as a drug. psychotropic substance, yes. drug? no.
      and lastly, have any of you ever tried it?

      you don’t wonder then where laws come from? they affect you, they affect us all, our entire lives. doesn’t it strike you as absurd that you could be jailed in excess of 5 years, without bail, for something that is no more harmful than the cigarrette its usually smoked in and technically isn’t even a drug.
      as for rave parties, don’t know much about them, escept what i hear and read…never been to one. so no question of supporting them.

      don’t oppose them either. the way i figure it, if the kids wanna get high, let them. all this talk of upholding the glorious indian culture and law and order doesn’t sit well with me.
      after all, cultures evolve and evolve all the time. and ours is just one of many thousands that have flourished and will die out, eventually. and the law, though a means of enforcing order is a tool of repression, after all.
      so no, i’m not, so to speak, in your camp. i’m an opposer. a ditracter. a traitor, because i think that for the most part, india is a godawful country. just as awful as any other. i am, a hippie. a tree hugger. a gay-lover. a pacifict. a nihilist. a marijuana enthusiast. a cultist, if you will. and only a rave party non-supporter, cause i’ve never been to one. if i did, i’ll likely support it. and above all someone, who doesn’t recognise the authority of the laws of this country or any other to curtail my freedoms.

      Mr harshad,i accept the fact that drug abuse is a crime.but let me tell you that bhaang is not a drug and consumption of bhaang is socially accepted i india.and about the rave party,many innocent guys and girls were punished just due to mere physical presence.i dont think by punishing them is the solution 2 the problem.that was a publicity done by the police that they do their duty,but by raising the issue and flashing the names is a stupidity.what about those who din consume anything but still they are suffering?its not ignorance,let me tell u that.instead of discussing about something creative in life,we give value to such topics.and punishing them is not how they learn a lesson….coz each individual was gone there with different intentions.SO MR.JOSHI BETTER TRY DISCUSSING SOMETHING EFFECTIVE THAN SUCH CRAP…

      “Thanks for calling me a person with good moral values..I like that.. ;)”..this was ur reply.Thats a quality of a moron..and I dont like that.
      U consider urself havin morale values…just for an example consider the Taliban or SIMI or such anti social elements.They consider themselves as a moral brigade.That is because these group of religious fanatics and bigots consider themselves to be but they arent! U r just like them.Tryin to prove ur point through cheap activities.For example the long big crap u have posted up.
      U also said that these people caught were not innocent but ignorant.Killing,raping,looting are crimes that are committed not because of mere ignorance but because of a mentality that is deep rooted in the criminal.Wat a young person has to suffer for being ignorant?? Names in the newspapers,on the internet,dont knw wat ndps laws on them,most of all their carrers.I can only ask u to be constructive on the issue.Thriving on a story like a maggot or a scavenger wont change anythin for good.U add no meaning to the word humanity.
      And please Orkut is not antisocial site.The good has to be derived from it.Good shall always win!

      That the ‘pursuit of happiness’ is not the only end to one’s life and that people like you are willing to take on the ulterior forces in our present society is a heartening wake-up call to all those out there who think that admonishing you is a quick ticket to glory.

    Gmail gets into trademark troubles 

    Looks as if trouble is always in air for Google’s Gmail. First it was the privacy question, then it was the spam and now, its a legal problem, that could well rip Google off Gmail. I think Gmail spells ‘trouble’.

    The company that recently won the rights to the GMail trademark in the UK has taken its case Stateside. And if Independent International Investment Research (IIIR) is successful claiming its stake to GMail in the US as well, your @gmail.com address could change to @googlemail.com instead.

    Late last month, IIIR filed a petition with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to cancel Google’s ownership of the GMail trademark, alleging the company had improperly acquired their application for it in 2004.

    IIIR launched their GMail product in the US in 2002. The “G” stood for “Graphiti,” a combination of “graphics with integrated text intelligence.” A subscription service offered through the their website, it was intended to allow stock brokers to incorporate IIIR’s equity and currency data for investment banks.

    Rahul Roy wins Bigg Boss 2006-2007 

    Rahul Roy got 5 million rupees as a prize when he won the reality show Bigg Boss on 27 Jan. Bigg Boss is a reality show known for high emotional drama and various controversies involving clebraties, the latest one being from its UK edition Bigg Brother.

    It should be noted that Rahul Roy taught a number of things that are very useful for managers.

    1. Remain cool no matter what the situation might be. Its certain that it will revert to normal even though it may take some time to get some things setelled.

    2. Avoid conflicts. Once a task has been gives, concentrate on how to accompalish it. Do not worry about its consequence.

    3. Just dont get into personal complexities of any person. In large organizations, this is the biggest challenge wherein the manager has to handle so many people from different background. People do take their personalities to work and tend to associate it with  their success or loss.

    4. Believe in yourself. The only ultimate thing thats gonna provide you with strength and success.

    5. Do not take half chances. A firm decision avoids future trouble and controversies.

    6. Dont speak the truth if its gonna hurt you. Remember. There are no secret rooms. No one, but the eyes of Truth are always watching and hearing you. Learn the skill of maintaining silence.

    7. Finally, put your money where your mouth is. Dont get distracted by external disturbances. Its bussiness, and everyone’s want to to win, maybe by fair or unfair means. You too do the same..This behavious can be termed as hypocritic at times, but then this is the way the world goes..

    Switch off the crap Bigg Boss/Bigg Brother 

    Pathetic and Weak‘ , ‘Intellectually Crap‘ – probably this is what a civilized society will say about (un)Reality TV based shows like Bigg Boss in India and Bigg Brother in UK.

    The so called reality in these shows promote *racism(Shilpa Shetty incident in UK), and often misguide the common public.(Bigg Boss in India) At least in Indian where many people glorify icons, this situation is certainly not favourable. Let me make it clear that none of the contestants of Bigg Boss are icons nor they deserve any public support. They are just strugglers dying to make some money out of the utter crap they present on the TV. Most of them have their careers slumped and it feels so disgraceful when the quality of TV shows is dropping to such a low level, man can it get some more worse then this?? Just for the sake of increasinf the viewer base or channel TRP, these blokes are ready to potray anything unuseful on the idiot box screen.

    Arrgh..someone needs to setup a few mandatory standards for the quality of TV shows all round the world, so that the general public interest is not harmed.

    No matter how much technology changes, no matter how sharp the picture and sound quality is superior, the idiot box is still considered to be a crap for its the lack of quality TV media.Its nothing but like creating a rift between various parts of the society. The idiot box has become more idiot and seemingly more dangerous..

    *Consistant use of racial comments can lead to the dawn of a new Hitler who will be more armed, more dangerous, more ambitious, more intelligent, more perfect then the previous one.

    Actually, in this age of globalization, such issues need not arise, but who cares..

    Apple iPhone – The evening after in India and rest of Asia 

    Apple iPhone is todays equivalent example of Sony Walkman of yesterday. Theres no path breaking features that it offers, but apparantly, its PDA and smartphone capabilities(alongwith very good marketting) can help Apple to reach a wide customer base and also it will give comman non technical consumers the chance to learn the Apple way of design and operation. As it is many people just drool over the lean mean Mac, its time to have one in pocket and let the world drool. I would personally take it as a PDA device with the capacities of the Mac OS. Now-a-days many PDA have a crossover as a mobile device and a PDA or a portable handheld. It would have been much better had Mr Jobs introduced it as a iPod+PDA and not a smartphone+PDA..

    As far as Indian market is concerned, I think that people will literally do anything to get this fabulous PDA. Reasons of it not used as a smartphone are

    1. India dosent have an EDGE capable network as of 11 jan 07.(If theres any, please market yourself more guys. I think former BPL had this, but not clear about it) GPRS is present, but the operators charge it like hell, and a its an example of a paradox that BSNL broadband is much cheaper and affordable then the GPRS provided by blokes like Airtel, Hutch, !dea and the CDMA players like Reliance and Tata Indicom.

    2. 3G is absent. My motorazr can take a 2.5G and 3G, but as of now, I dont think that any provider has this facility.

    3. Nokia already dominates the hi-end market in India, but it never markets its any smartphone as a PDA. Nor does it offer any features as compared to the iPhone, although their N-series has got some serious multimedia features. Theres pretty tough competition for survival.

    The asian market is full of varied diversities. Japan has got its own NTT DoCoMo, India has got WLL, CDMA, GSM, and all are incompaitable with each other. I hope that by the time iPhone reaches Asian market, the final picture will become much clear, and hopefully, the Apple iPhone will give Apple and consumers a great functionality.

    Update on June 25, 2008.

    Apple iPhone is to be launched in India by Vodafone. To book your iPhone in India, sms IPHONE to 56789. The price of iPhone is expected to be around 25000 + taxes. So get your savings out for this beauty.. 😉

    Update on July 11, 2008.

      Hi Guys,

      If the price is 31000 and 36000 for 8GB and 16GB respectively, then i am damn sure it will be a flop show for Steve Jobs in indian market.

      People in india are not much aware of the latest technology what US people are crazy about, we need a phone with good qulity.. since I phone has got good features like Ipod, multi finger touch.. people are much satisfied with this..

      So what i suggest is, give us the basic phone with Ipod and multi touch technology, we do not need the internet device.. we have got so many cyber cafe around to browse.. so if price is 12000 to 16000 deffenetly it will be a good show for Apple in india.

      All the best for Apple..

    Apple shares up on iPhone launch(Well finally..) 

    Apple iPhone

    Shares in Apple Computer closed some 8% higher on news that it is launching a touch screen mobile phone, the iPhone.

    News of the device – to be used exclusively on the Cingular Wireless network – sent shares in smart phones, iPhone’s competitors, sharply lower.The iPhone, costing from $499 (£257) to $599, will be on sale from June in the US and from October in Europe.The phone with 4 gigabyte (GB) of memory will cost $499 while the higher price is for a model with twice the memory space.

    Also at the Macworld event in San Francisco Mr Jobs said that the firm would change its name to simply Apple.

    The move to switch from calling the firm Apple Computer to Apple is an indication of the firm’s focus on consumer electronics, Mr Jobs said.

    Mr Jobs predicted that in 2008, when the phone will start being available in Asia, the firm could sell 10 million iPhones, equivalent to 1% of today’s yearly mobile phone market.

    Competition from other players in Smartphone catagory

    Andrew Seibert, of Stewart Capital Advisors, said phone firm Verizon might have to watch out and other manufacturers “may have some problems”.

    Analyst Shannon Cross of Soleil Cross Research said the move would lead consumers to “upgrade some of the existing iPods” but more crucially it would cause greater competition for existing smart phones.

    Shares in smart phones fell on the news, with Research in Motion – the maker of Blackberry devices, tumbling nearly 8% on the Nasdaq.

    “We won’t find out for another six months what real impact (the iPhone) is going to have in the channels,” said Research Capital analyst Nick Agostino.

    But after the news the market was reacting to potential stiff competition ahead between Apple and smart phone makers – including Nokia, Motorola and Palm, for high end consumers.

    Mr Jobs said: “Most advanced phones are called smart phones. But they are actually not so smart, and really not so easy to use.”

    ‘Revolutionary’

    We are all born with the ultimate pointing device – our fingers – iPhone uses them to create the most revolutionary user interface since the mouse

    Steve Jobs, chief executive, Apple Computer


    Users will be able to play music from iTunes and take photos with the new phone.

    Microsoft Vista released for sale 

    Microsoft Vista

    As I am typing this post on my blog, Microsoft’s new operating system, Windows Vista, starts its global roll-out on Thursday, being first made available to business customers.

    The system, a replacement for the firm’s current Windows XP operating system, will not be available to home consumers until the end of January.With Windows running on nine in 10 of the world’s PCs, analysts agree the new version should be a big success.

    However, Vista is two years late and its consumer launch misses Christmas.

    A huge but slow success

    Last minute delays at Microsoft meant that computer makers would have been able to install Vista only on about half the computers that they were hoping to sell over Christmas, said Al Gillen, a Vista expert with technology consultancy IDC.

    Microsoft predicts that Vista will be the fastest-selling operating system to date.

    Experts agree, but say this is merely a result of the wider usage of computers compared to five years ago, when Windows XP launched. Corporate customers, meanwhile, will take their time deploying Vista as well.

    “Our big corporate customers were the first to test Vista, but will probably be the last to introduce it, because they have the most [hardware and software] to test for compatibility with Vista,” said Gareth Hansford, managing director of Lenovo UK, the company that was IBM’s PC division until it was bought by Lenovo of China.

    He expects corporate customers to begin large-scale rollouts of Vista in about a year’s time. IDC’s Al Gillen agrees, and points to a very unusual feature built into Vista, which allows IT managers to “downgrade” the software on new computers and run Windows XP instead.

    Once the company is fully Vista-ready, the IT team can simply activate the original Vista license bought with the new PC. Most analysts believe that Vista will dominate computer desktops in about two years’ time.

    These are some interesting stats about Microsoft

    Founded: 1975

    HQ: Redmond, Washington

    Staff: 71,000

    Sales: $44.3bn

    Operating profit: $16.5bn

    Windows sales: $13.2bn

    Office sales: ~$10bn

    Financial year to 30 June 2006 Source: annual report 2006

    Now it would be interesting to find out what the Linux biggies like Red Hat, Debian and Ubuntu will try. I am not counting Novell Suse or OpenSuse here, probably due to its partnership with MS. Gazing into the crystal ball, its apparant that comon users will go in with Windows Vista, and XP will coexist atleast for 2 years for now. Interesting facts will pop us soon on the financial aswell as technology markets.

    The Great Indian ‘copying’ challenge 

    Watching the TV continiously for a few days has made me realize that all the major TV Channels in India have absolutely lost their creative ideas and are hell bent in aping the US reality TV shows  and hopelessly trying to ‘indianize’ that version.

    Its a shame that these people, who are capable of having a large and good impact on Indian people, are themselves trying to find a readymade solution by doing this. The current live shows – Bigg Boss, [V] Roadies, FameX etc show nothing but absolutely wrong picture of Indian youth and its utterly disgrace to watch the pathetic things that are displayed all over. These programs are portraying – ‘Do anything. Lie, cheat, backstab, gossip, but survive’. However, there are a few entities who ae very happy on these shows. They are – Mobil communication companies, soft drink companies, and apparel companies, media managers, self proclaimed ‘ad-gurus’. Their profits are booming sky high. I lost Rs 5/- for sending one  sms to a reality show. Face it – I felt as if I gave it to a roadside begger.

    Only the (ruling) government owned Doordarshan is somewhat avoiding this trend, because its the only channel that has a wide reach to the most remotest place in India and is very cautious in preserving its image as a channel for masses. But unfortunately, the quality of content on Doordarshan is unspeakable, ununderstandable and its better to ignore this.

    Actually, watching the whole scenario, its clear that private channels are falling short of quality TV content and good old Doordarshan is uninterested in trying something new. The immature private news channels apparently are more obsessed with the concept of ‘breaking news’. For that these blokes can do anything. Almost anything. They can display unwatchable dead bodies, they can display blood, they can have a talk with henious murdarars, they can invite criminals live to their studios, they can have a live coverage of indian prisons, they can have sting operations on people, anything is possible….

    I wonder, who can beat the shit out of them?

      Cant disagree with you. I frustrate whenever I have just causal glance at my tv screen. Today tv is the admittedly largest media, influencing the entire India effectively(adversely, I would rather say).

      But what can be done, when mass of people really enjoy such ‘creative’ programme.

      There is no direct control over what channels are showing.

    • SR 6:06 am on December 30, 2006 Permalink | Reply

      dude this is the basic buy n sell principle of economics. and it does not depend on a country or its cable providers, its the viewers who govern what needs to be shown on tv. but i certainly agree with you on two points, these shows are stupid and india lacks creativity not only in field of media but also in science and arts

    An overview of free and open software(part 1) 

    Tux, the GNU/Linux mascot

    I support and use GNU/Linux kernel and open source software mainly due to following factors.

    1. Its free. Nothing can beat that.

    2. Its stable and seldomly crashes. Memory management is more efficient.

    3.Most of the documentation is available for free either online or offline.

    4. It has got great desktops and allows one to fully customize the environment and settings without causing major hiccups. However, newbies need to be watchful.

    But there are some things that are criticized

    1. Lack of central control – Who controls Linux OS? Do new distribution makers need to follow certain common norms that would enable core system to setup easily without involving too much user interference?

    2. Too many distros spoil the party – There are approx around 80 linux distibutions available today. Out of them, only 5 – Red Hat, Suse, Ubuntu, Debian, Knoppix are well known
    amongst common users. People get confused in this matter.Its hard to decide when there is too much or too less.

    3. Geek or n00b – Todays distros have to manage a balance between the geek and newbie. Too much simplification of Linux will definately affect its stable usability and real geeks will turn to more geeky kernels like FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, Solaris etc. Linux is attractive, mainly because of its geekiness factor.

    4. Heavy duty multimedia users and gamers have to suffer a bit – Its true that linux clusters have helped to create some of the Hollywoods greatest flicks, but even then, its hard that pure gamers and CG programmers will switch to linux.

    5. Device manufacturers often ignore Linux users while designing drivers, although the scene is changing fast. Big players like HP, Nvidia, ATI, Creative bundle Linux drivers too.

    Meanwhile, feel free to vote in your favourite linux distro here.

      I love the picture did you do it?
      We offer Linux on all our workstations and only supply our small business server with our image (slackware based) on. Current take up is 50% while your 3rd criticism is probably true if only for the number of “generic” distros out there I think for business users and business n00b the big 2 Distro’s are SuSe and Fedora we supply SuSe 80% and CentOS/Fedora 20% these work out of the box for some one who is new to linux, meanwhile we use a mixture of windows, Slackware, Gentoo and CentOS.

      The driver issue isn’t as bad as it use to be unless your a die hard game fan in which case sadly windows or a ps3 is your only choice.

    Google Co-op Search Engine 

    I think I am a little late on this topic,but anyway…

    This is my new Google Co-op Search Engine over here.

    Feel free to experiment, but note that it dosent index thousand/million/billion pages. However, it does incorporate nice links and good content for technology/food/linux/Web 2.0 fans and users. And following Googles method, its currently in beta.

    Direct link to Semantic Space – http://www.google.com/coop/cse?cx=004747769890504554559%3Anckzlkyfnc0

    There is one Rollyo also, but I think that its less technical.

    Broadband in India and abroad. 

    Harshad Joshi hates waiting on a site for too long

    If by any chance you have encountered this image on some other site for more then 40 seconds, then you know that you are not using Broadband to access that particular site.

    Broadband is often called high-speed Internet, because it usually has a high rate of data. In general, any connection to the customer of 256 kbit/s (0.256 Mbit/s) or more is considered broadband Internet. The International Telecommunication Union Standardization Sector (ITU-T) recommendation I.113 has defined broadband as a transmission capacity that is faster than primary rate ISDN, at 1.5 to 2 Mbit/s. The FCC definition of broadband is 200 kbit/s (0.2 Mbit/s) in one direction, and advanced broadband is at least 200 kbit/s in both directions. The OECD has defined broadband as 256 kbit/s in at least one direction and this bit rate is the most common baseline that is marketed as “broadband” around the world. There is no specific bitrate defined by the industry, however, and “broadband” can mean lower-bitrate transmission methods. Some Internet Service Providers (ISPs) use this to their advantage in marketing lower-bitrate connections as broadband.

    In practice, the advertised bandwidth is not always reliably available to the customer; ISPs often allow a greater number of subscribers than their backbone connection can handle, under the assumption that most users will not be using their full connection capacity very frequently. This aggregation strategy works more often than not, so users can typically burst to their full bandwidth most of the time; however, peer-to-peer file sharing systems, often requiring extended durations of high bandwidth, stress these assumptions, and can cause major problems for ISPs who have excessively overbooked their capacity. As takeup for these introductory products increases, telcos are starting to offer higher bit rate services. For existing connections, this most of the time simply involves reconfiguring the existing equipment at each end of the connection.

    As the bandwidth delivered to end-users increases, the market expects that video on demand services streamed over the Internet will become more popular, though at the present time such services generally require specialised networks. The data rates on most broadband services still do not suffice to provide good quality video, as MPEG-2 quality video requires about 6 Mbit/s for good results. Adequate video for some purposes becomes possible at lower data rates, with rates of 768 kbit/s and 384 kbit/s used for some video conferencing applications. The MPEG-4 format delivers high-quality video at 2 Mbit/s, at the high end of cable modem and ADSL performance.

    India has created a mobile revolution, but now, we are waiting for yet another broadband revolution that will help in faster communication and easy sharing of information at a rapid speed. As time progresses, we will definately feel the need of fast internet access due to following reasons.

    1. The paradigm change from ‘fixed’ desktop apps to ‘live’ and usable ‘online widgets. Many sites like Google and Yahoo! have got various useful services and widgets that can be utilized efficiently only on a relatively fast net access. Most importantly, these apps are available at a cost of 0 rs. Money saved is money earned.

    2. Conventional media services have proven inefficient and unsufficient to reach the masses, only radios have succeded, but the time taken to do so is very slow and a radio service has got very few VAS. To reach more people at a time and enable to them to have a multiple way of communication is another advantage of broadband. We see that todays media is only a ‘one-way’ information transfer system. You can listen, but you cannot ‘talk’

    3. Financial institutes like banks, stock markets, etc will recieve a boost and will enchance their capability.

    4. Broadband will also help to spread education and at the same time, will help in reducing the digital divide and economical rift between the various levels of society.

    Its very brief, but I think that all readers of this blog will agree that India needs more broadband services as compared with abroad.

      I read somewhere that by 2007, India will have 100million internet users which should imply an expansion in broadband services. Broadband is a must for spread of online education. What you have said about video is bang on target.

    • irfanhab 1:39 pm on October 14, 2006 Permalink | Reply

      I think India should more concentrate on wireless broadband, WiMAX/WiFi, because in many developing countries the telephony infrastructure and land line is insufficient, and thus reaches only a small portion of the population.

      I live in Pakistan, and use broadband at home, but broadband here is available only in the big cities, not in other 80% of the country, and thats because of the landline/telephony infrastructure, thus I believe that developing nations should focus more on developing wireless broadband to boost there connectivity.

    • Harshad Joshi 2:02 pm on October 14, 2006 Permalink | Reply

      Mr IrfanHab
      India is far more progressed then Pakistan in all fields. And on top of that, there is no sign of democracy in Pakistan, no freedom, no policies.

      We have got broadband almost all over India, only thing is that we need that more Indians should make use of it. We are always proud to be Indian.

      But anyways, thanks for the suggestions.

      And companies in India are planning to bring IPTV to India! huh

    • Harshad Joshi 5:02 am on October 15, 2006 Permalink | Reply

      @ Saawan

      Dont worry dude. India has got all those facilities and there are people who can buy not only an IPTV  but also their own private satellite. Its just a matter of time when the Indian economy gets a real boost. And it wont be a boom, it will be a real and fast growth that will enable India to be in the top markets in this consumer oriented world.

      The only apparant thing that concerns me is the – Digital Divide and Economical rift which is prevalent in the country due to somewhat outdated distribution system. If we can replace that system with a new and working one, I guess that we will soon be called a ‘progressed’ and advanced country much before 2020.

      We need that more people should make use of these facilities and demand it from the govt. We need technically literate people. A knowledge based society is always better in many senses. Not only they are loyal to country but they can also help in preventing terrorism in any form.

    Mission Google Wordmaster 

    Tommorow is gonna a great day. 298* people. 6 different cities. One competition, One aim – Who is going to be a Google Wordmaster..??

    Here I come… 🙂

    Because I blog of nothing but mainly of Google and its related technologies, I shouldent worry much. But its scary when someone asks you to write an essay. Theres always a difference between an essay and a blog. 😉

    The last time I remember writin’ an essay is my 12th HSC English paper in 2001, where I scored a decent 73%.

    But for no reasons it adds pressure when Google asks for its potential impacts on society and blah..blah blah..

    Who cares?? Google is good for me. I dunno of the rest of remaining mortals.

    • I registered twice and Dad said no to the invitation. So it leaves a total of 300 – 2 == 298 blokes trying hard to reach to the top of glory.

      Hi,
      This is Mitul Bhavsar.
      I visited Google WordMaster competition and it really rocks. It has been taken by Google India. Their employees came from their different branches and took a test of competitors.
      They also gave us a nice goodie bag contained a writing pad, a pen and a keychain (google branded). I expected some coffee and junk food which could leave a good impression but didn’t get them though. 🙂
      Any way, overall it was a nice experience.
      Thanks Google…

    The future of Google and conventional computing(beta version 0.01) 

    Today I had a nice closer look at Google Writely, a free and easy option for word processing. Infact, I must say that it is a nice product, definately a good competition to its paid and bloated counterpart MS Word.

    Going by current product releases by Google, it seems that now the paradigm is slowly but surely shifting from offline, desktop based apps to online, Web apps, in which broadband has goot a major role to play. There are many speculation as how the GoogleOS would be like, and even I would like to put in my views.

    1. At the core, Google will have a very minimalistic version of OS kernel (either Ubuntu or its own derived from GNU sources)

    2. The job of this core will just be limited to setup the screen, perform minor system checks, set local time and after authentication, log on the the main server or the cluster grid to which the computer(in this case a thin client) belongs.

    3. HDD will mainly be used as a supportive backup utility and will contain small apps needed for booting and setting up the system.

    4. The apps will be similar to the ones like we have seen – Google Writely (for all text processing), Spreadsheets (for all tables), Google Pages, Blogger etc.

    All these services will work as a unified collection of tools togather.

    5. And the best part of this is that all apps will be free for commercial or personal use. Google will earn its future income mainly through ads, big corporate markets and can even venture into consumer product market like shopping malls etc.

    6. The market for distributed computing and apps will be at its best and Google will also get its major share from creating a very economical desktop for developing countries like India, Brazil, China etc. The software will be developed into local languages and this will help in reducing information and digital divide across the globe.

    7. Google will create redundant cluster grids that will be deployed in space research, pharmaceutical and drug modelling, SETI, Human genome product etc. Googles search technology will be used to explore gigantic databases.

    Now for some challenges to be faced by Google.

    1. Issues related to local polictics and Government regulations.

    2. Problems related to privacy.

    3. Lack of fast broadband facilities in many parts of the world.

      Looks like google is sounding the booglve. Very very interesting post. I was not aware of any of these things. Except for the forced compromise that it made in China, google has been doing fine.

    • Harshad Joshi 6:55 am on September 28, 2006 Permalink | Reply

      Thats what I am saying. As it contunues to spread around the globe, Google is definately going to face issues from local government and polititions. Apart from that, many users also accuse Google of overusing its ‘cookies’ policy that helps it to collect each and every possible information about the user and potentialy a consumer.
      But nevertheless, the future appears bright and good, till Google maintains its ‘Dont be (too much) evil !!’ policy and thats what we want..free apps and good search engine that provides relevant results.. 😀

    1st cheque from Yahoo! 

    1st cheque(check) received from Yahoo! Inc

    Today, I received the Yahoo! cheque. It feels great to see the first monetory gain from Yahoo!. Actually, I was expecting my first $ cheque from Google, but sadely we didnt have a mutual agreement on the conditions and terms, so I had to say say NO to Google. As a part of this, there is no sign of Google on any of my official blogs.

    May this be one of the many I have to receive from Yahoo! 😉

      Well going by current ‘click frauds’, I think that now a days these companies are gonna somewhat slowdown the flow of cash and possibely make use of more strict rules and regulations.
      Yahoo! currently offers its ads service only for US citizens. Likewise there are many Yahoo! services which are not available in Asia or Europe. This denies them a potential chance to settle in Asian markets.
      Maybe this is the reason, Yahoo! is having a lot of issues to solve.. 🙂

    Maps on Orkut 

    Today, 13 Sept 2006, 12:30 IST Google has now added an extra facility for Orkut users. Yup, its the much awaited Maps service allowing users to view their friends location.Please click here to view the snapshot I got…
    I ask myself an obvious question – Was it necessary? I mean theres a more good friends mapping service called ‘frappr’ which already provides this functionality, and that too it uses Google Maps service…

    Who cares…lets wait before seeing what Orkut gets more to beat MySpace.. 🙂
