My first basket

My first basket!!!!
I have been playing basket ball for quite some time now. Only thing is earlier I was never regular. i wud play some months then leave it. i had this bad habit of givin up soon, plus i m always hardpressed for time. But this time I have been regular since the begining of the semester, and will continue to do so.

Yesterday, i did my first basket in the past 3 days !!!!
Isn’t tht great, tht does call for celebration!!!! Game was about to end. I was just under the basket, somehow the ball landed up in my raised hands. And i did it.
Manoj said, “finally RD did it”. Wow tht was a special feeling.
I hope I’ll certainly improve my game, if I stay regular with the game. The first yrite Jayant is also very helpful.
Here’s a Jordan in making !!!

London Blasts

Today was a day full of irony and stark contrasts. In the morning only i read aboout London’s victory in bidding for 2012 olympics and hardly 12 hrs later i read about these horrible London blasts. Actually, we human beings have become so much habitual of the casualities that we don’t take any tragedy seriously unless the number of casualities runs into thousands.

The casualities were barely 33, till the time I am writing this blog, but this event has sent several important signals and lessons to be learnt. Firstly, we must notice that whole of the London is united in this hour of crisis. Even the politicians, whether from conservatives or democrats, all were pledging the to keep London united, and their first priority was to help the people reach to safety.Now compare this with the Indian scenario. Some 2-3 days back, Ayodhya was attacked. This became so big a matter, that on the BBC site, only news under the section ,’South Asia’ , was “More Ayodhya protests”. This was too much. I mean in our case, when hardly any casualty concerning any civilian was reported, and all the 6 terrorists have been gunned down, why this bruhaha now over such a petty matter. In India, whenever such thing happpens, first thing we hear form political leaders other than those beonging to treasury is that X should resign and Y should resign. I guess it’s high time that we the Indians should learn to behave in a matured manner and show the world that we are also united when it comes to the threat to the security of the nation is concerned rather than politicising the issues to make them the front page headlines of BBC.
Probably that’s why BBC doesn’t write much good things in the profile of India. It begins describing India by the word ,” a nuclear weapon state”. But in that case BBC is also discriminating. And strangest thing is that it gives a link for the national anthem of Pakistan on it’s profile page(that’s a different matter that it didn’t work , atleast I could’n’t open it), but not a link of Jana-gana-mana on the profile page of India.

But situation of london is really strange at the moment. In one hand , he’s carrying the victory of securing London as the venue for 2012 olympics, on the other hand, it has these blasts.

I really feel sorry for Mr. Blair, who’s concerned with , apart from these 2 issues, the G-8 summit also. There also, supporters of African nations are giving tough times to the leaders of highly developed nations, including Mr. Blair.

God bless London

My First Blog

I ‘ve never been comfortable with the whoile idea of blogging. I could never convince myself why to to write something on net. Why not write something in a persaonal diary? Also, why shud any one else be intrested in reading my writings?

But still i m bloggin. only reason is i wanna know wht difference this bloggin act of mine shall bring in my life, my attitude etc….. Also these days i m doin project work under Dr. Barua. The work assigned is good but also demands good knowledge. and net is the best place to get wht u want.
ya it’s lord google who comes to my rescue. while googling i get plenty of blog sites. ppl sharing very useful information and knowledge– how to use different functions, syntaxes, declarations of dll’s et al. they also list problems of ppl and solns.( though most of the times they, i find problems being poisted and to see the soln, one has to sign in, smartness !!!)
some times i wonder why do ppl take pains in writn so much , oops!! typin so much. though i do benefit from techno blogs, but still many of ques are unanswerd.
This is my sort of 1st blog. let’s see wht future has in store for me as far as bloggin arena is concerned. also since , i hav started bloggin, cud someone give soln to my prob:
when i make a simple .Net application for a PocketPC, which has to show just a messg box sayin hi, whenever the form loads, it shows the messgbox 1st time after thre deployment. after tht it never apears. not just tht, all the evehts tht i hav put in the code of form_load happen only once after the deployment, after tht it never happens, any body listening??
