Favorite Thing About You

(i)wish you did not have that face
(i)wish you did not have that scar
(i)wish you dint have that cute teeth misaligned from the rest

bcoz the best thing about you
is everything about you
so forget what they say
you are the best of all the rest=[rpt]

hide not paintless nails of your hands
hide not unwaxed pretty legs
and yes there is no need to hide that ungroomed hair

its okay being unseen
its okay being ignored
but beloved with me you will always be loved

the spotless moon is no moon
the thornless rose is no rose
may be you were made this way to suit my taste

wish not the curves you do not have
wish not the skin that your friend has
if you havent heard it yet, you are my favourite thing about you

The Soulmate

I often wonder why always people try to waste their life around perfect, perfect thing or the perfect one. The whole objectivity of life is the  journey to the road to perfection from the point of imperfection. You know that infinity is not going to end and you will never be close to its end, no matter how hard you try.

If you believe that there is always an area of improvement then infinity should be the perfection because only infinity gets better than what it was every time and all the time. So if perfection is infinity then you will never find your perfect one, soul mate, the one or made for each other guy or girl because if you have found them then you have only found the one who is better among those whom you have met so far but not 'the one'.  If people change over a period time is true then everyone has a different perfect one every day in the universe. I am not the same person (physically, mentally) compared to yesterday or tomorrow. Let us say if at all there is some supernatural way of figuring out a perfect partner for someone then as per the physical and mental health, nature and growth I might be the perfect one someone like me in another country but tomorrow the perfect one for me might be someone entirely different. Let me elaborate a little more. Let us say that tonight I see a movie and that movie change my whole perception towards life by tomorrow, then I am a different person by tomorrow. Since I am different person by tomorrow, my perfect one will also be a different one by tomorrow as per my new views towards life, world, myself and others. Yesterday I might have been someone who was a non vegetarian but today after seeing a video of a slaughterhouse and how the animals are suffered, tortured and ripped apart forcefully, I might become a vegan by tomorrow. So If I am a vegan today my perfect one should be someone who respects, responds and resonates towards my feelings about animals, birds and nature where as until yesterday I was a meat eater and thus I would have been okay with someone with a fur jacket.
The point is perfection is a myth which is only useful for the entertainment industry to make songs, music, movies and merchandise around it but not for real life. Now I begin to understand why my native culture at bharat gave importance to developing love towards the one whom you have married than chasing the wild invisible goose of love, perfection and soul mate. Arranged marriages are more successful in a gigantic proportion against the love marriages.
Let us say you are playing a game and you are told that no matter what you do, how you play, you are going to win and the game has been rigged, judges have been bought to make sure odds will always favor you; Won't you find that game boring ? What fun is there in playing a video-game where you know the whole layout of the game as if you are the one who made it and also there are 'no challenges', 'points of curiosity' , 'moments of suspense' etc., missing against another experience where you have played a game for the first time and at many levels you lost, you died, reborn, you got frustrated and threw the gamepad/keyboard/mouse/joystick away, screamed, yelled but somehow you finally won. I make this statement very boldly today. "If god grants the perfect one or the soul mate to everyone then the human race will be cannibalized and vanish" . It is definitely not about finding a sculpture on a mountain but it is about finding a suitable rock on which you are confident that you can work on it and then make a sculpture out of it. your life partner should also be the same. You are wasting your precious time if you think you are searching for a perfect one or a soul mate because that is logically impossible. Here in my country of 1.4 billion people arranged marriages happen and more than 98% of them last forever, yes forever. It is all about 2 individuals ability to transform each other together and that and those which surround them to achieve their means and definition of a good life.

If I had a million dollar or a programmer

I have wondered over the years whether there is a conspiracy to not to develop an application which is truly cross platform, that is
most of the music players stop at gnu/linux but till date there is no application which can sync your music between your gnu/linux OS and an android or with your iphone. Even the music players which are there on windows are not truly there on android or iphone and they cant sync to each other. I am finding it annoying to carry the ipod classic since it has to be wired and it is bulky. I want to use my android phone itself but no go since all the immature apps which are there on android play store to sync music are not truly there on desktop to play music but only to sync. ex: the doubletwist, isyncr etc., The day someone finds a way to sync or use the same media files across the devices without putting it on the cloud and having to pay a hefty data charges for the network providers, someone is going to be a billionaire. I wish I knew programming enough to just compile the banshee or any other such gnu gpl music player to android and distribute it but unfortunately my years of forced interest to learn programming (even python) have seen no positive outcome. I guess this will never happen, not until goolgle actually uses such flaws and vacuum to falsely give us an illusion of choice to use android on desktops or on all your devices too so that you dont have to worry about getting different applications for different platform since it seems easier to use all spying, NSA loving android on all devices to solve a problem. If you want to sell some shit then create a vacuum or a bigger shit and then give your shit as a comparison to show that your shit is actually a better choice than the other one.... nice marketing for mobile devices and force everyone to use mobile devices and cloud so that it makes it much easier for them to have all of your data where you are willingly and voluntarily giving it to them. The best way to take someone's freedom is to make them give it to you by choice.

My impossible Weapon to Save Bharath

When jews got israel they didnt build huge temples but they invested in the education of jews and today they are among the world's most elite in almost all fields. Knowledge is a bigger weapon than the strength of numbers or money because laxmi (Devi of Wealth) always follows Saraswati (Devi of Knowledge and Wisdom).
Temples of hindus were the centres of education, wisdom, culture and heritage but today many of them are just into making money. Almost all the wealth of the temples was used to the upliftment of the society through education, preservation of heritage, culture etc., but today it is only being used to market that temple. If we release the temples back to their trustees "unconditionally" they will become more corrupt than what they are now. Our Devis and Devathas never created disparity among rich and the poor but today a rich can visit the Devatha faster than poor which is an insult to Devatha and our heritage (The ticket system at temples which allows the rich to get a faster Darshan).
If someone can they they should mandate all the temples to either surrender to the government completely or give 1/3 of their annual income to the 'Hindu Fund' and in return they will have autonomy with their temple with no interference. This Hindu Fund should be used only to sponsor scholarships of Hindus.
Today our talent is just getting migrated to the west and bharat is suffering because of that. What is the use of investing on such talent when they are not ready to serve bharat by staying here but it is also against bharatiyatha or hinduism to force them to stay here and serve bharat. We should only sponsor or give scholarships to those who are ready to be bound by a legal clause which makes them return the loan (student loan) without interest or not at all but if they choose to give up the citizenship of India or serve outside bharath for more than few years then they have to contribute to the hindu fund 3 times the money that the 'Hindu Fund' spent on them. This way it will encourage the talents stay in bharath and prosper bharath. If possible I would like to extend this only to the male children. Always feminine has been given a higher and more cultural and religious importance in our dharma for a reason because she can excel in anything to which she puts her mind to it and thats we must encourage them to the most important task of the society, that is preservation of our culture, traditions, knowledge, preservation of the family values. The outside bookish knowledge, working, earning are the 2nd grade activity belonging only men when compared to the preservation of the society, family, educating the children, teaching them shastras or many other things. They should also be educated to the highest peak possible but to make them able to go earn in the society but her curriculum (at home or outside) should give more importance to politics, religion, society building, our scriptures, culture etc., and if she wishes to gain more knowledge on any other subject then she is free to do so anyway in this world of information. She should be educated and more knowledgeable to teach the children in various subjects.
I might be wrong but as I have seen in the society when today women start earning and also lack of the actual knowledge of our heritage they start feel that they have to become equal to men by wearing their dresses, drinking alcohol, smoking cigarettes like them or by going out, working and earning like them where as it is demeaning for her to think that since women are greater than men and by trying to be equal to men they are downgrading themselves. It is only women who can create but men can only destroy. When a man earns enough and starts to look for a women to have a family with , he cares very less for her riches but gives more importance to her nature, wisdom, knowledge and the society's opinion about her. I have seen many men feel threatened and they shy away from a women who earns like them, smokes like them,drinks like them,dresses like them or trying to be like men. In hinduism nothing is taboo or banned and one is free to choose their way but a man's parents choose a women for him based on her nature, beauty, family values etc., but a women's parents look for a guy's wealth , profession, status in society etc., If one cares to have a balanced society where the population ration doesnt grow negatively like japan or germany then a man should be promoted to attain a higher social status and a women should be promoted to attain a higher cultural status sex, care, children and many other things which were exclusive to marriage are freely accessible to both the genders outside marriage and they do not need to adhere to any so called culture or heritage of the country anymore.
I have labelled it as an impossible weapon....... because i know it takes guts of glory and balls of titanium to have a mandate to make the temples pay 1/3 of their income but otherwise there wont be any left to go to the temples once slowly all get migrated to other faith systems where their religious or worship places give out money for following the faith. In hinduism when we go to temples one pays to the temples (not to Devtha since he doesnt need it but to maintain the temple the trustees need it) but in some faith systems you get money if you convert a person to their faith from their religious houses, they even will award you with wealth to make others migrate by force or deceit since as per their faith system they are only helping us to go to heaven since otherwise we are doomed to go to hell. It is more like saving a patient against his will and curing him of his disease. There is a reason Shiva bought destruction through invaders on his temples and on bharat because the land became corrupt with money, somnath temple for instance had so much wealth in it that they invaders couldnt take it all at once where as the wealth should have been spent to the wellness of the society and the people. If all were rich and well in that society then as per 'vasudaiva kutumbakam' we should have used that wealth to help the far off places from where the invaders came from to help them prosper and if that has happened then there would have been no invaders but only allies.

Why and how loyalty deterioates a society

Today I called SBI (state bank of india) to have a Fixed deposit for a good amount of money but it took me 4 hours of phone call with their customer care and nobody could help with anything. This is a huge problem with he public sector organizations in india where job security will be there with you irrespective of whether you work or not, whether it the company is doing well or not. There were no ATMs in india before citibank came and threatened these mighty public sector banks. Till date date public sector employees be it may the tellers or a watchmen are the rudest among any employees in the world.
If there were no private banks in india to threaten these banks then there would have been no ATMs, there would have been no improvement in the behaviour of these employees of the public sector. If there were no private transport system then there would have been no improvement in the transport system of india. If there were no private airlines then there would have been no improvement in our airlines. If there were no private telephone carriers then there would have been no IT revolution in india. If tomorrow all people in USA decide to buy only good made in USA then they will be 100 years behind any other country since making an gadget in asian countries like china, taiwan or india costs atleast 10 times less than what it costs to make it in USA. Many of the things like tomato, chilli were not from india including electricity, automobiles etc, so should we reject them too? One should always choose a better service or product when available because only that will encourage competition and betterment of the existing service and product. The worst thing that one can have in the world of consumerism or even employment is loyalty. Brand loyalty will ruin a product and makes the makers of the brand lazy since they already have an established market and they dont want to improve it anymore but just maintain it. If tomorrow a telephone carrier has all of its customers as loyal as they can be with it then they never have to worry about improving their service and there would be no reason for others to compete with this telephone carrier since anyway they are not going to get their customers since they are loyal with it. I think the same is applicable for employment too. If a company or organization knows that its employees are not going to leave irrespective of no salary hike for year, no remuneration, no standard facilities or deterioration of the work culture then they will never try to improve the conditions of their employees since now they are taken for granted anyway. If a production environment has no people to produce since they are fast moving to someone who treats them right or pays them well then obviously the current organization will be forced to be competitive in taking care of its employees in terms of remuneration and over all well being of its employees. Loyalty is a very dangerous thing which will lead to the deterioration of the society.
You might observe how a guy and girl take care of their looks, health, fitness, appearance to keep it pleasing to their partner but once they either get married or know that the other has no where to go to then they have taken each other for granted. Wife no more has the need to take care of the herself, groom herself, lose all that extra pounds, no need to dress well or cook well since her guy is tied to her now and she has no "need" of putting an effort to please him. The same is true for the guy too once they are wed-locked with each other. This is the reason why it is better to always move to a place or move towards someone where you are treated better or atleast you will be treated accordingly, the way you treat others or the way you treat a place. If someone or some place is ready to invest the same devotion and dedication in you the way you do to them then you are a coward not to take that chance who would rather stay cozy with known devil than an unknown possible sanity.

Horizontal Growth System (HGS) against the Vertical Growth System (VGS)

Many are predicting that majority of a country's population (as much as 90%) will some day live in cities ( I hope it is not the conspiracy of some real estate goons, lol) and I do not know why is that such a great news. It saddens to know that many have to leave their home, people, neighbors, favorite restaurants, favorite hang out places or the memories of their childhood to earn a living to some far away place where nobody knows nobody and they try to nobody and even after knowing the nobodies none will know till a month passes by when you die in your bed with old age until you smell too rotten to your neighbor.
Shouldnt out aim be to develop all the regions equally, together? Is it not our priority to have an inclusive growth? If we want the inclusive growth to happen then we should slowly scatter the sources of growth all around the place to promote inclusive growth where there are multiple centers of growth. It is also a great thing to do in terms of national security since if you have 90% of a country's population living in one place it is easy to finish off a country's majority of the the population along with all the main leaders of the country with just one bomb.
Imagine if a country like India has 26 capital cities for each state and 90% of the population of a state lives in the capital city of that state then all it takes for another country to destroy is less than 30 bombs.
The power or source of these growths are not just industries or farming but mainly the education centers. one should give a choice to the colleges which are offering degrees in the city but meeting up the expectations to either lose their license to offer the degrees (Medicine, engineering, diplomas etc.,) or move out of the main city and to a district from where a lot of students are coming to study to city. Let us say there are 20 districts in a state and there are 200 engineering colleges then our goal should be to distribute 10 colleges per district. Many employers flock to a place where there is talent and now if the talent is spread across the state the employers too will spread. This will improve the stability of the employees too since now they cant jump to another employer every year since all the major companies are in the same city. It will lessen the burden of the city, reduce the cost of the living, student now will have to stay or move to a different district or state for studies and that will end racism by letting them interact with the other part of the country's people. Instead of 1 mega center of power, growth and population now we have multiple powers of growth offering redundancy and inclusive growth. We must try to reduce the burden of the city by creating alternate centers and regions of growth, employment and opportunities in every district.
This will put an end to hunger, parents having to die a lonely death at their old age, traffic jams in cities, unemployment,cost of living, cheaper real estates and a lot other things which are caused by crowded population at one place.
I will make it even simple for you if you don't want to read all this. If 90% of the earth's or a country's population lives in the city then one nuclear bomb is enough to take down the whole country, a single contamination of the water source for the city is more than enough to take down the whole country, a single power failure to a city is enough to take down the whole country or a single man made or natural epidemic is more than enough to take down the whole country.

Big Bang, Darwin and Bible, Can all be true at the same time?

As per hinduism one day of brahma (Creator aspect of Almighty) or Brahman (The Almighty Force/God)  is 4320,000,000 man years also known as kalp. As per bible the creation happened in 6 days but it doesnt say it is 6 man days as we know there was no man, there was no earth, there was no sunrise or sunset to calculate a day and neither was there any solar system or galaxy or  stars for that matter. As per big bang theory it was a massive explosion and it is still an expanding universe due to that explosion. The big bang theory tells us that after the explosion the gaseous materials and the residues were all combined, collided and later it all evolved into the present universe. If we take both the big bang theory and the biblical version of creation as true (including the darwin's theory) we are left with one question! What kind of day is the bible talking about? when there was no sunrise, sunset, earth or any of the planets for that matter. So it must be the day at the heavens or at the place of the creator or the force behind this creation (atheists please be with me a little longer and agnostics too...). After life was created the tadpole became ape, ape evolved into a man as per darwin's theory. Just for the argument sake if we take the darwin's theory, big bang theory and the bible's version of creation as true then we come to the conclusion that from the day of the big bang explosion to the day the ape evolved into a man it took 6 brahman days that is 6*4320,000,000 man years (25.9 billion years) . As per Big Bang theorists it happened approximately 13 billion years ago. You might ask how did Hindus came up with this number? well don't ask me but ask some spiritual leaders or hindu gurus because I too dont know how they calculated the exact number of moons around the saturn along with their speed of rotation and axis of rotation without a telescope but as someone who belongs to this oldest surviving culture and race on the face of the earth who invented the 0 I can certainly tell you that early humans were genius. Bible doesnt say creation happened just like that and neither does it say that he created the man by evolving a primitive into a human being so can it be that it was 6 brahman days the creator [Here creator doesnt have to be some man in the cloud but here when I say God I mean G(eneration)O(peration)D(estruction)] took from the big bang to the evolution of the human from a primitive organism ?! I don't know but I am just asking.

a story about my new sony xperia z1 compact

Right from the day when the news and pics of the sony xperia z1 f surfaced for the japanese market which is just a small screen version of it's big brother sony xperia z1 i was very excited to finally a mid sized phone which is small enough to be operated with just one hand but powerful enough to match any big phone in the market at that time. I was finally thinking of replacing my HTC desire HD which is almost 4 years old and i still miss it for elegance and simplicity and most importantly its metal construction and camera.
After months of wait it finally got released and i made the mistake of buying it as soon as it got released. When i bought it (march 2014) on the 2nd of the official release in india it was 35k in the local shop but there wasnt a screenguard or a case available since its new. They gave me a temporary custom cut screenguard for 200 Rs. I bought an expensive screenguard online which need to be soaked in soap water before it has to be applied to the screen and it was a complete waste of money. I took it to the mobile shop with another screenguard which i ordered online again and they couldnt do it either but they gave me another crappy screenguard for 350Rs which doesnt cover the screen completely and it got a lot of bubbles. Now i have ordered a normal screenguard online for 600Rs, so i wasted 2750Rs (200+800+800+350+600) so far and i also bought a bugdroid case online since the back already has scratches on it. After 10 days of buying this phone now it is available for 32k on online stores.
Few things which really disappointed me are the [CONS]
1. the camera : My 4 year old HTC DHD with 8mp takes much better looking pictures than this new sony xperia z1 compact with 20mp. It doesnt have a face shutter but only has a smile shutter.
2. The Internet passthrough: I wasted 2 good days with this phone to try to use PC internet on the phone via USB which i had it in my 4 year old HTC DHD phone but it doesnt have that feature. Sony just like other companies is a partner centric corporation, when it comes to making products. I tried rooting the phone but still no go. HTC DHD has a 4th option to choose from when you connect it to your computer and that is internet passthrough (reverse tethering).
3. The Build: Since I was so used to the metal construction and rough handling of HTC DHD i didnt go for the delicate plastic darlings of samsung. This one has a stell frame but not the metal body. The back is still plastic and the front is glass.It is waterproof but a security risk where sim, memory card can be taken from the phone if you have left it unattended for even 10 seconds. The panel which covers the charging or the usb port seems fragile and may come off after a long use so you are forced to now buy an expensive magnetic charger which doesnt come with the phone.
4. NonAvailability of accessories: You make a waterproof phone and to avoid taking the lid off to charge you create an external magnetic charger but you won't make it available for a country with 1.30 billion people.  I can't find a good logic here. Am I missing something ? If the fragile lid after a certain period of time gets disconnected or comes off then sony has to replace the entire handset because In the authorized service centers of my metro city there is no repair option but to repair. The only magnetic charging cable (not the dock but just the cable) costs a whopping 2000 including shipping. wtf sony why do you want to hurt yourself ?
Today I filed for a repair of the product since The camera is worse than i though because many of the units are DOA when it comes to camera because they are affected by this flash bleed issue and it is construction problem and thus it cannot be fixed with a firmware update.
I called the sony service center and they told me that they will replace the handset. Thank you sony.
Today when I went Jayanagar, bangalore center they said they cannot replace it, how sad.
Below are the picture samples with "FLASH BLEED" problem and the pictures are horrible.

A sample from 4 year old HTC Desire HD

Gave back the handset to the sony service center after restoring the TA partition (unrooting the device) and relocking the bootloader with a new generic firmware from sony. They said they will get the handset replaced in a week. Waiting for it now. sigh.
Finally got the replacement phone. Tested it at home with flash in complete darkness and the flashbleed issue is no more there.
I strongly urge you not to use the default case provided with the phone which has a magnetic sticky strip to attach itself to the back of the phone. Its good but i somehow think the magnet in it is making the tiny camera parts inside go messy. I switched to bugdroid case and the images seems to be better.
Here are the samples of the sony xperia z1 compact phone main camera's samples after the replacement of the phone.

spent so for
+200(temporary screenguard)
+600(wasted Sony Xperia Z1 Compact Screen Protector) March 5, 2014
+600(wasted Sony Xperia Z1 Compact Screen Protector) MArch 7, 2014
+350(temporary screenguard)
+800(cruzerlite Case for Sony Xperia Z1 Compact Cruzerlite Bugdroid Circuit Case for Xperia Z1 Compact-Black; don't buy it if you use a screenguard. it will mess up your screenguard overtime)
+600(magnetic charging cable)
+600(wasted Capdase Klia Screen Protector for Sony Xperia Z1 Compact)
+600 (Capdase SPSYD5503-K Screen Guard for Sony Xperia Z1 Compact) 24/4/2014
40,919 INR :(
Lessons learnt so far:
  1. 20mp of sony xperia z1 compact > 8mp of HTC DHD, This is because many handsets have this flash bleed and interestingly this has not affected many of the black handsets.
    This 20mp is actually the 8mp which takes multiple shots and then combines it to make it look like a 20mp picture. Oppo has implemented the same in their new oppo find 7 phone where the 13mp camera takes 50mp pictures.
  2. Never buy a product before 6 months of its official release in your region.
    (a) it will be very pricey in the beginning
    (b)no basic accessories
    (c)if it goes for repair then it will take forever since it will be a new product and the parts will not be available soon for replacement.
  3. make a list of your favorite features of your current phone/product offers (internet passthorugh in the case of my HTC) and check to see whether your next product/phone offers it and if not is it worth buying it.
  4. Screenguards are too big a pain to apply.
  5. Avoid buying products/gadgets/smartphones from companies who have a conflict of interest in creating a competition with their own products. Everytime an iphone/ipad sells sony makes money since it is the sony sensor which is inside an iphone. Sony is one of the world's largest seller of point and shoot cameras, handycams and also they are now emerging into the field of professional photography and videography. No business minded company would like to make a camera-phone which could potentially threaten their money minting product lines of photo & videography.
    Samsung supplies Ram, Display Screen and even its A7 chip to apple along with the SSD in apple's macbook air. Nokia will have a conflict of interest with their main windows line up of phones so they will never make phones which might compete with their windows mobile OS. So, the only other player who is worthy of being called an iphone of android is HTC.
  6. Never buy body cases like  Cruzerlite Bugdroid Circuit Case since they will mess up your screenguard from the edge and then you will end up replacing the screenguards every month.
