Victory for India


Well… In addition to India’s 2011 Cricket World Cup victory, I was inspired by victory of 2011 Anti-Corruption Movement lead by Anna Hazare

 
Anna Hazare

 
Corruption is the core issue that we face today. I have to admit, I was very cynical in my view towards “fighting corruption”. Looking at the series of scams we had, I never thought anyone can put an end to this. But things changed when I saw this movement and the result. I really appreciate all those who has joined the movement for their courage and determination.

It was very interesting to see how some politicians reacted to this. Anyway that was on expected lines, no surprises. I don’t have to name them. You know it… I was also inspired by the way the younger generation responded to the whole movement. Yes, we too can bring the change. There is still some ray of hope!

Hmm… Its also interesting to note that, there are still some “intellectuals” who “tries very hard” to use their analytical and statistical skills to view each and everything that happens on earth. Cool! Well? If you haven’t watched CNN-IBN The Last Word: Anna Hazare fast and the Media, please do so.

There were three “intellectuals”, other than Anupam Kher. I was amazed by their intelligence (or lack of it)… May be they never had to visit the local government offices and hence clueless about the facts of life… Or may be they are trying very hard to look at things from different perspective… trying to stay away from “norms” and hence everything looks “abnormal”…

What?! Did you mean – Abnormal Psychology? 🙂

What ever… I don’t care, as long as it helps to end corruption… Well done India! 🙂
This is just a beginning…

Its almost a year since my last post… A bit busy with other tasks…
Btw, I came across this interesting post “A Year After: The People”… 🙂

Out of Sun[shine]


Well… This is not about JavaFX (for a change) …

I moved out of Sun MicrosystemsMy Dream Company. Culmination of a decade long association. It was very very difficult decision to make, but after weighing so many different options, have decided to move on.. Interestingly the decision was not influenced by take-over or technology.. I still like the work, believe in the technology and will continue to be strong proponent of Java and JavaFX…

Looked at the cubicle and office for one last time (as employee) and returned my Sun badge.. That definitely was one of the sad moment of my life.. Well.. Life moves on..

OK! enough of personal stuff.. Now get back to JavaFX!

Happy Onam


Wish you all very Happy Onam!

Onam is the State Festival of Kerala. It is celebrated in honour of Mahabali (also Mavaeli), the mythical Asura king of ancient Kerala. According to legend, Mahabali returns to visit his (former) subjects on the day of Onam. Also a harvest festival, it falls in August/September. It was officially declared State Festival in 1961. Onam is now celebrated by everyone in the region irrespective of caste or religion. &nbsp courtesy: wikipedia
