Elegant Efficient and Excellent Personal Organiser Services

Elegant Efficient and Excellent Personal Organiser Services

We are busy. The work challenges and assignments keep us busy. No one can afford to waste even a second of time and aspire for victory. It was said that Napoleon Bonaparte of France gave greatest of great focus and attention to time and hence he was able to win most of Europe. But the same time, which he lost a few seconds made him to fall to his enemies in the Battle of Waterloo. Somewhere some weblog or Wikipedia, I read about this. Of course, this recalls me the European History, which we had in our tenth class chapters.

Coming back to our prime line length discussions. This is an Internet age and I don't think time management can be underspoken of its value now. Rather its importance has grown manifold. And equally contributing is very user friendly sites that help us in our time management efforts. The most popular things are MSN Hotmail, Yahoo Calendar, Google Calendar etc. But among the flock of websites, the most significant ones impressed me was Norada Junglemate (which is now Solve 360) and Inbox.com. Norada Junglemate is currently not free but they have low priced editions of Solve360. I guess both the providers support for entreprise versions of thier products too.

The latter two are really excellent for the following features and this is a small testimonial and an information tip to other users who I would like them to try out too.

  1. Superior Helpdesk. The helpdesk comes to your rescue with whatever queries you have.
  2. Constant Product Innovation and Upgradation.
  3. Site Security. Both these sites have a Secure Sockets Logon. Even Junglemate had SSL Login, albeit the fact that it was not publicly advertised.
  4. Suite of products like Email, Calendar, Reminder, Storage, Notes, Photos, Tasks. Each of them individually competing with one another to add its own feather to the crowning product.
  5. Particularly with Inbox.com, the excellent thing is thier rich UI based on AJAX. It provides almost a desktop experience. As thier slogan says, 'Inbox.com - when communication becomes a pleasure...'.
  6. Inbox is pretty cool in its homepage too. Myself and most of my friends admire to even play around its homepage, AJAX style of customization, drag and drop.

And sweetest thing with Inbox.com is that they are always for open for suggestions from users. Most of the suggestions are investigated into and almost everything which can be included into the system are taken into consideration.

I fondly recall a scene from Sindhu Bhairavi. JKB (Sivakumar) sang a song 'Manadhil Urudhi Vendum' from Bharathiyar Kavithaigal. I am trying to describe the scene with the dialogues translated in English for the easier reach of the audience (an approximate Tamil version in transliterated form in brackets) The song was so lively that a fisherman roaming nearby put his fishing net down and listened to his song. When the song got over, he came to JKB and told him

"Salutations Sir" [kumbidren sami]
"Sir. You really sang really well" [saami. neenga romba nalla padineenga]
"I feel like gifting something to you. But I am just a fisherman folk. I don't have cash and currency with me. " (thinks a while and takes a beautiful garland made out of sea shells and pearls from sea) ". Will you accept this conch as my humble gift?". [ungalukku edhanachum kodukkanum pola irrukku. sembadavan. kaasu panam illai. indha paasi malai vangippengala?]

JKB with very much humbleness, accepts the garland. He was very happy that his song got accepted to all quarters of the people. His fan-friend, Sindhu (Suhasini) too commented on this and she was remarking that this is the greatest of the great gifts that he can get since it came from one of his admirer-fans.

But why am I thinking this Sindhu Bhairavi scene suddenly? And all between while I am appreciating the user interface and friendliness of digital organizer software. I think love is really blind and the love and craze for Inbox makes me to compare Inbox to JKB the great singer and the affection of the fisherman to gift something to JKB. The state of fisherman applies to me too. I am not that capable of gifting anything decent to Inbox. This is just a small testimonial -- some scrap of appreciation -- my love letter. The other thing, I can do is to pray the Lord that he should shower His choicest of merciful and bountiful blessings to Inbox.com for thier success in all spheres of life.

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…
