Earth is Calling

Living in the IT world of Bengaluru we generally forget to reduce the impact on environment caused by us.The more the carbon is being let out into our atmosphere, the more it contributes to global warming. Even though we are educated and are working in the IT industry we do not care much about measuring our carbon footprint. By measuring the amount of carbon we release in each of our activities, we can cut down and reduce the carbon amount we leave into the atmosphere by taking some effective initiatives.

Our city is known for its IT hub. The infrastructure of the various MNCs are very huge. Each building can go green by including some very useful and effective green measures such as rain water harvesting system, solar heaters, eco-friendly air coolers, minimising the usage of plastic, usage of solar buggy, cycles, usage of low energy consuming lights and daylight sensors.

More initiatives can be taken if  each and every employees carbon footprint is measured every day in each department. The amount of energy consumed by one computer can be compared with the others and some strategy can be applied to reduce and manage the carbon footprint in the concerning departments. I have seen such an initiative being taken in Infosys. I have also come across companies who say that they are too small to take green initiatives. However small you are, you can always contribute to saving the environment by taking smaller strategies. Environmental education like conducting regular seminars for raising awareness about our environment in a cost effective way can help.

With the help of an NGO such as  each one of us can save our Earth by taking small steps in our own way. Together let us sing a hymn for mother Earth.

Winners can never become losers. Nobody deserves to be called as a "loser". Everybody is a "winner" in their lives, in one way or the other.

The people who call others as "losers" say that with only one intention and that is to bring down others confidence. So, it is very important for everybody not to pay attention to such absurd sayings. These people who call others as "losers" can only be termed as cowards.

Winners are the people who do their duty assigned to them as human beings (Karma). A winner is an achiever of goals set ahead of him/her without harming or hurting anybody else. I have become a winner even though some people called me a loser (Mainly because I'm not stinking rich!)

I felt like a winner when my paintings were appreciated by a celebrity, when I could walk after my knee surgery, when I completed my graduation and post graduation, when I took care of my grandmother in her last stages ( I was 10 yrs old), when I showed atl…

Zodiac signs

Zodiac signs' dictionary meaning is: "an imaginary area of the sky containing the positions of the sun, the moon and the main planets, divided into 12 equal parts, named after 12 groups of stars.
It is interesting to see how these stars effect the life of each individual living on Earth.
This study of stars is an ancient science which rises curiosity in everyone. The study depends on the date of birth of the individual in the western countries and on the birth star in the Hindu astrology.
The zodiac signs plays a vital role in match making and other aspects in Indian arranged marriage.
Some people have strong beliefs in the forecast of these zodiac signs.
However I do not believe in the predictions of the zodiac signs :)

Hamsadhvani raga

Hamsadhvani raga is the janya raga of 29th melakartha DheeraShankarabharana. It's oudava raga. Ramaswamy Dixit, father of muthuswamy Dixit, has created this raga.

Shadja, chatushruthi rishabha, antara gandhara, panchama and kakali nishada are the swara sthanas of this raga. This raga can be sung at any time of the day and for all the auspicious occasions. Many kritis in this raga are composed for Lord Ganesha. There's plenty of opportunity for a good alapana and swara prasthara. Vaggeyakaras have also composed kritis in hamsadhvani raga. Some of the famous kritis are:
Gam ganapathe by muthiah bhagawathar, vathapi ganapathim by muthuswamy Dixit, gaja vadana by purandara dasa, siddhivinayakam (mishra chapu tala) by Mysuru c rangayya, kodu bega divyamathi by purandara dasa.
