Bombay, Bangalore infrastructural problem and solution

I usually find Mumbai being digged out again and again repeatedly by number of different ISPs. Due to this, traffic becomes a huge problem. Instead of these companies digging out, why dont BMC consider one time act of becoming wireless like Arizona.

Google Analytics : Strategic advantage to both Google & website owners

As usual, Google has released another 'unexpected' new service "Google Analytics".

Ofcourse Google has huge amount of database of keywords connected to the sites. But Google's brilliant idea (rather Urchin's, the company bought out by Google) is that they wish to connect the websites with keywords which were through by other websites like Yahoo, MSN, etc.

Once again, Google's game is : provide service for the benifit of user and in a way benifitting itself. Using the same model it has defeated every player in its core business that is 'search'. As a Googler, I once again hope that Google continue to provide such services to benifit 'me' (user).

Future of Matrimonial search process

Past few months, whenever I start to think of my marriage, I had to think about how will I get a girl of my choice (that is, rural development minded, however my requirement is irrelevant here). I have started to understand the merits and demerits of current system. First I will discuss how things are happening right now and later we will see how there will be a paradigm shift from the current scenario.

Indian traditional system surely not applicable in this IT age because these days people do stay away from their parents (far distant locations). Telecon, Chatting, e-mails will be of little help in continuing this centuries old system. So why ..

There is a phenomenal rise of Matrimonial sites in India (they were even successful during dot-com bust). They are just a replica of Indian traditional system of marriage brokers in this electronic arena. Important thing to note here is, they are just helpful to dig out a girl based on age, caste, religion, education, profession. However observe that this is only initial elimination process.

Actual process starts when communication happens. Demerit of this is that one cant decide a life partner just by asking some questions or qualifications or expertise over telecon or chatting. To have a lifetime relationship, critical thing is to understand the background (history) of the partner in regards of interests, relations, interactions, beliefs, etc.

So now the question is that, what is the media that allows a person to get the background of another, before making the crucial decision of ones own life. Yes, you must have understood by now. This blog-site of mine covers a very restricted domain. This particular blog also fits into it, very perfectly. It is "Googling" of that person. It really helps us get to know the more closer details. Future of matrimonial process is in googling (or researching) the partner.

One can understand the other persons feelings by reading his/her blogs. Then next is to check for comments that (s)he makes in communities such as orkut or gazzag. However, one should not fall by profile information. Profiles are usually to express positive things of a person but never reveals negative aspect of a person. This is crucial when in building a relation without a break (be aware that gone are the days, when divorces are so rare).

One must evaluate from the discussion point of view how well (s)he truly represent her/his profile. In this regard, blogs, comments in blogs, comments in web-news, comments in websites, issues raised in orkut type of communities, the kind of social network, etc are to be analysed in comparison with profiles in business networking sites, personal website, social networking websites, etc.

and then, if everything goes well, after getting married, I personally believe that they must exchange their mail ids (reveal the passwords) to let each other know more closer.

However there is a negative shade of this. Before being googled by the other, one can do auto-googling and eliminate/ modify any controversial topics discussed by him/her. But then, not all can be deleted. This is where the searcher has to put his brain at work.

Although I vaguely expressed my view points here, but I will discuss in detail some other point of time. Probably when I am successful in my own search, I will disclose all of my strategies that I have applied :-) .

Are you wishing to avoid spam?

  • When one create an e-mail, it is likely that one wishes to have by his name. However it is better not to have by name. Because it straightly attracts huge amount of spam.
  • One can always know by looking at subject whether it is spam or intended message, if one keeps e-mail ids such as some english words (eg. blueeye, blacklooks, visit.me, interested etc) . Because those sapmmers use their programs to send message by referring sender by his e-mail id. Whereas human does never.
  • Another thing is never subscribe to services to such as free greetings, free namesdatabase, etc. Instead you maintain one mail id which only attracts spam. However you can give your mail id to established organizations such as Google, Yahoo, MSN etc.
  • Crucial thing is : always let your friends know what is your fwd (greetings) mails id and personal mail id (wherein just personal communications happens).

To be contd..

Free Computers for Rural Communities and select individuals

Recent announcement by AsiaTotal.net is rather very surprising.

Although it has not received media attention as expected, but I believe it will be a sensational news within few days.

First of all, is it a viable business model? Although Ms. Chen (CEO, Asiatotal.net) is silent in this regard, some curious observers predicted the following.

This model could work -- but it might be difficult to attract the required sponsorship. Some Russian companies might be willing to pay up to $10 per computer annually to attract users from the targeted demographic to their sites. If Asiatotal.net could attract such companies for each of the 10 buttons, it would earn $500 over the maximum lifespan of the average PC, more than covering the cost of the lowest PCs currently on the market.

Will it explode like 1GB free e-mail service? If so, we will see radical changes in society towards computing. Then it means that we have seen only a fraction of IT revolution till date.

My japan visit and experiences

This is written after my return to Tsukuba from conf at Maiko (near Kobe) ..

About the bullet train ;
I came to know that there is no direct train other than this bullet train. otherwise I need to travel by rapid city train (one city to another .. thus breaking my journey but with a single ticket). This bullet train has no special except that it goes fast (270 KM average speed).

Visit location Maiko is very close to beach. There is a bridge (on sea) to an island. I came to know that this sea bridge leading to a small island from which there is an another sea based bridge to a bigger island and this second bridge is the longest sea based bridge. I could take few photos of the first bridge.

Good things in japan (observed during my trip):

at every railway platform: they keep iron bars for safetly so that people can't cross more than certain extent.

To make blind people walk by themselves .. they kept some kind of marking everywhere ..

they keep mirrors on every turning .. so while crossing u observe mirror and cross.

parking : is not a problem at japan although there are too many people have cars .. they have many many differnt parking styles .. taken by camera.

for the protection of tsunami .. they kept some kind of different shaped stones. taken photos.

highways have some metal walls both sides .. surprisingly they are absorbing the sound and thus not disturbing the people who live close to highways ..

highways are constructed very rapidly .. part by pat .. they are constructed initially at some distant place and join together while putting the road ..

roads are fully utilized .. no space is wasted like in india .. footpath for walking persons cyclers is clearly given everywhere .

tokyo has no pollution at all .. when compared to least pollutant city chennai in india.

parking seem to be no problem .. even when every second person has a car here ..

there is no obessity problem like in US or UK or india .. I could see only one person till now who is fat (during a month long visit) ..

people are not too much religious . . but they do follow religious things ..

people are exceptionally kind .. so far I could not find any "less kind person" ..

japanese eat raw fish with so much interest .. fish is their main food .. I heard that they are main portion of total fish consumption of the world.

one business man told me that "with small human capital much profits is the goal of any japanese company"

I came to conclusion regarding indians living abroad why they dont be helpful to others. In most cases the aim of settling abroad is to earn money and save somehow and send to india. Since these people are moneyminded .. they dont behave as usual like in india. I had few very
very bad occurances already with indians over here.

On sunday I went out of my hotel for some time (but close to my hotel .. ) I was exteremely sad when I came to know the difference beween developed nation and a developing nation. I saw the typical rural places of japan and compared with india. Every house (one in 2 persons of total populaion) has a car .. almost enjoing all kinds of facilities many times more than urban people in india like mumbai or delhi or kolkata or chennai. Taken few photos. With a sad mood,
returned back to lab.
Today my most exciting experience happened. There was a minor quake of (little more than what I had during in chennai a few years ago!)

The real surprise is: I was in the fourth floor and went down to Ground floor (to see japanese reaction a quake whether people come out of their building). Surprise came here: people were very in very usual manner. Then I felt, may be in ground floor, people do not know. That also is a wrong estimation. One woman asked me whether I felt quake or not.

Now why they were taking casual : either quakes are too common to ignore or they are that much interested in doing work. Latter reason too convincing me from my past experiences.

I went to a italian restarent. I had CauliFlower pickle. Pickle mean keeping in salt. I see no other added. Sweet Corn (really very sweet) and Muttor I had. People over here could locate japanese vegetarian restarent near by, where we will go on tomorrow

Indian Media is crazy!

When I was looking into news after quite a long time .. there was very very crazy news by "great Indian media" that one Uttar Pradesh XI student (Saurabh) topped NASA exam "International Scientist Discovery" which was taken by 200,000 students world over.

As soon as I see this news I wanted to confirm such news. So how??

in google : "International Scientist Discovery"
why?? to know such exam exists at all. Then I found many many results covering above news appeared. I wanted to exclude above news (but wanted only about such test). So

"International Scientist Discovery" -india -indian -saurabh

Then, as expected no result. So it is clear that this news is fraud. Only one minute to check this news. But for media, even now they are still crazy and I see many many new NEWS still spreading out.

I hope GOD save indian media.

Things to take while leaving for foreign country

I wanted to search for a webpage which gives me info what things an indian need to take when he leaves for a foreign country. I gave following keywords to reach to a good site.

pickle masala admission shirts pants

why?? pickle is the best way to avoid cooking. Masala is used for cooking. Admission: problem comes only for newly admitted students. Shirts and pants are must while leaving. Cool .. right??!!

Security Link

I tried to search for a security related govt body link (other than given in http://www.isical.ac.in/~malapati_r/indcrypt/govt.html) whihc few months back I came accross. But I could not get any link as I dont remember the name of the organization. I have seen in NAS. I searched for

site:www.fas.org raw

.. which gave directly indian RAW. From which I went to the index of india and found it (National Technical Facilities Organisation).

I have come back after a long time to this great site. Hopingly I will continue forever.

I have to update my crypto links (http://www.isical.ac.in/~malapati_r/crypt.html).
I never updated Malapati's Cryptopath (http://www.isical.ac.in/~malapati_r/cryptopath.html) after its creation. (although I claimed that that file regularly updated). I dont know when I will look at (edit).

In between I have seen a wonderful site on Japan VISA details. In google to get this site: I used : "what is a visa" site:jp

Twofish algorithm is implemented by B.Schenier. He kept in his site. My friend was searching for it "Twofish block cipher" .. but could not locate the program. Then I searched for Twofish. It came as first result. It is due the reason that program of twofish is very very popular .. should have been linked many sites. So it may have good rank.
