Rocky Assists in Horoscope Matches

Rocky Assists in Horoscope Matches

There were some "high level" family talks in the morning between Chennai and Bangalore regarding horoscope matches again. I was asked to have my horoscope typed and sent across the email since an astrologer sitting over there wanted to do a match. Well! A significant deliverable right?

Should I type the horoscope into Tamil? Luckily BhashaIndia's Indic IME (Input Method Editor) came to the rescue. The moment, you install that, Rocky (Microsoft Word) understands Tamil in any of the convenient forms either by Transliteration or via Tamil 99 Keyboard or Tamil Inscript.  With the help of these and Microsoft Word (and the cute little Rocky at the right bottom), the document was prepared and sent across. She did it from her end too, as I learnt from her later in the evening from her text message.

Indic IME is really an excellent transliteration tool and it is very friendly once you learn the tips and tricks of it and understand to type in Tamil. If at all, you are encountered in a fix, the next defense that you can help yourself out of the tight corner is Tamil Keyboard. Well! All said. What happens if the destination system does not have this editor. I have also tested it with an online word viewer and it works fine. I guess, it embeds the fonts into the document. As a precautionary method, I also, had this converted into an Unicode Webpage and have the same in my webpage. I don't need to hyperlink this anyway since the recipeint knows it via the private email. And, as usual with any webpage, I tested the cross browser compatibility in my own interest. FireFox certified the document rendering after a pass through was run in Html-Kit Prototype Pad.

The inner essence of the post is to emphasize the greatness of Indic IME in helping out managing desktop documents in native Indian languages through a 'realtime' use.


Just an addon. There was some 'heaviness in heart' whether this was despatched during the Sunday Rahukalam. But considering it as a transactional entity, the process having initiated from preparation of the document and the preparatory process logged on to my weblog, the actual weblog post was recorded on 5:57 Indian Time IST.

It is said that, at the closing of Rahu Kalam, the planet Rahu bestows enormous blessings and prosperity.
Yet another small update. This is purely for the sake of my own inspiration of making this device compatible, instead of locking down into Unicode restrictions.

Thanks to Irfanview, it has been converted into a GIF image which can now be viewed across any web browser without restrictions of Unicode or font restrictions. Perhaps, you can find this in my personal homepage at this URL:

As an additional restriction to prevent IE from resizing a couple of meta tags and a IE specific IMG attribute has been added and hence the interlaced image should render without any resizing or a toolbar being popped up.

Should you encounter any difficulties or discrepancies, let me know.

Ayyappa (48-day) Observation -- Rules and Restrictions

Ayyappa (48-day) Observation -- Rules and RestrictionsOne of my friend was suggesting me this -- "Why can not you put up some kind of blog post or an article summarizing the 48 day observation rules to be observed. Well. I had a small pocketbook and a couple of PDFs circulating in the emails.Most of the rules normally are hearsay from our elders to us. As my friend suggested, today since I was relatively free, just thought I would update it as bullet points, so that future Ayyappa Swamis  can immensely benefit from the same.While my pocket books are in Tamil, I am attempting to compile the same in English. Should you find discrepancies, share your thoughts and observations as comments.Most of the rules and observationary regulations are purely for our own control and development -- to streamline our day-to-day chores.All round the work time, keep your mind only focused on the Lord. Even the work you do is being instrumented by the Lord. Dedicate the same to the Lord.  Perhaps, Bh…

"Arindhum Ariyamalum" Sloka

"Arindhum Ariyamalum" Sloka

There was one Swami (Karthik) who had expressed a bit of dejection since on a particular day, he could not wake up early and he was feeling a bit down as expressed over here. As far as my little information goes, I think, our guruswami's have taken these issues into consideration and the Arindhum Ariyamalum sloka that we recite accomodates for all these mistakes that are committed with and without our knowledge.

I searched a while to give this sloka lyric to Swami but since I could'nt get it, I have typed it myself in a Word document using a Ayyappa picture and Unicode Tamil and captured as JPG using Irfanview. I would like to share the same with other readers as well.

Om. Arindhum Ariyalum Therindhum Theriyalum
Naangal Seitha Sagala Kutrangalaiyum
Poruthu, Kathu Rakshithu Arul Puriya Vendum
Sathiyamay Ponnu Pathinettam Padi mael Vaazhum
Kasi Rameswaram Adakki Aalum
Om Hari Hara Sudhan, Ananda Siddhan Ayyan, Ayyappa
Swamiyae Saranam Ayyappa.

Nemili Bala (Tripura Sundari) Temple

Nemili Bala (Tripura Sundari) TempleA calm and poised atmosphere near Vellore, the most elegant town of Tamil Nadu in the district of Arakkonam is a village called Nemili. Seated in her own house, Sri Bala Tripura Sundari has been incessantly showering her blessings on Her devotees for several years. I have also heard of Her temple from my relatives but it is a significant truth cum stipulation that unless the Lordess wishes you to see you, it is becoming almost next to impossible to go to this temple. Even to search information on the website, I think, I could not locate it till now and just reached a YahooGroups website NemiliBala. I wanted to share a few info about this temple so that other pilgrims too can get benefitted by praying to the Lordess for Her darshan and blessings.Other temples of Tripura Sundari:ThiruvanmiyurTri SoolamThirukazhunkundramThiruvathiaiSirkazhiHistory of the Temple/Sthala Varalaru:The significance of Bala Tripura Sundari unlike Her other temples enlisted a…
