Evergreen Memories (Album Collection) :: My Wedding Promise (Engagement) with Lavanya

Evergreen Memories (Album Collection) :: My Wedding Promise (Engagement) with Lavanya

My wedding engagement and wedding albums have been remaining in my Windows Live album under 'Private View'. Lavanya had been trying to convince me and remind me each time to get them across the 'LavanyaDeepak' platform. Not sure what caused the delay -- is it laziness, is it time-availability, is it other environmental factors that have been inadvertantly creeping in for us providing a kind of hot water scenario.

Today afternoon, I just thought I would take out a few moments to get these published out. The breaking inspirations for the publishing today were:

Ashok's Google Chat. Ashok is currently in California and he might be visiting India around next month. Vishnu's Part II album of his new kid.

Wedding Engagement: 12th July 2009


Scholarships for meritorious students with poor financial background

Scholarships for meritorious students with poor financial background

My sincere thank to Nirmala (Cognizant) for sharing with me the emailer on scholarships for meritorius students with poor financial background. I would like to share the message with other interested readers so that it can reach and cater to more needy students.

A Bangalore-based NGO ("Prerna"), backed up and supported by Infosys foundation is helping out poor students with excellent academic records. The NGO conducts a written test and those who clear the test stand to qualify for eligible financial assistance for their further studies. The current eligibility is stated as cleared tenth standard examinations in April 2009 with a score more than 80 per centage.

Interested students can get the necessary details and application forms from the following address:

Let us keep LinkedIn beautiful and clean ...

Let us keep LinkedIn beautiful and clean ...

Social networking communities are excellent tools for getting people together, building rapport and relationship. At the same time, pranksters do abuse such websites for their wilful bad gains. Orkut had been the most targetted product for such abuse by hackers. I am a hard nut to crack in my policy towards a staunch hatred for Orkut because it keeps hitting headlines time and again for abuses in varied forms.

And recently the placement and recruitment consultants seems to be having a similar foray on LinkedIn. LinkedIn is simply different professional networking community and there is simply no place on earth or under the sun for casual flirting and other crazy relationships over here whatsoever. My normal practice of dealing such scumbags is as follows:

A polite reply back challenging 'Do you know me? Can you give a background on our previous knowhow?'. I would give them a decent four business days time before I choose to trash off t…

MTC buses in Chennai are adored by beautiful quotations

MTC buses in Chennai are adored by beautiful quotations

I have observed a number of MTC buses these days in Chennai wherein nice quotation stickers are pasted near the entrance and exit of the doors. The transport corporation is also busy in using these spaces to enhance its rapport and relationship with the commuters. I would like to draw your attention to one of our recent discussions on this topic over here.

The other useful quotation stickers that I came across are being generated by Temple Divine Success. The website is available over here: http://www.templedivinesuccess.com/

Disclaimer: There seems to be a small issue with reference to this website. Google Advisory has allegations against this website as distributing malaware. I had to investigate this website armed with Inbox Web Security Guard and found that a few third party services that they have embedded seems to be causing this issue. I have written about the advisory to info (at) templedivinesuccess.com. One of the first re…

Who is the real vector?

Who is the real vector?

Today afternoon I had a chance to visit my workplace because of little Todos in my tasklist. I had a friend who visited the same time too. I had a casual chat with him for a few minutes before he was leaving for the day and he was telling that he was actually not feeling well with a little high temperature and common cold. Since these days, the incidence and prevalence of H1N1 (aka) Swine Flue seems not to be that uncommon in any part of the land area on the planet earth, there was a little affectionate teasing as whether swine flu visited him. He immediately screamed in negation because of the fear of it.

As the discussion progressed, we touched something philosophical. It had been common that quite a few of the diseases are linked to some bird/reptiles/rodents. A few examples are:
Dog (Canis lupus familiaris) is associated with Rabies.People say the fur of the cat would be a more common infectant for those suffering from asthmatic conditions.A little recently th…

"Speak Less; Speak Softly; Speak Sweetly"

"Speak Less; Speak Softly; Speak Sweetly"

Today during my visit to my bank in Adyar and whilst waiting in the banking hall for my transaction to be completed, I observed a small slogan that they had put near the teller counter

"Speak Less; Speak Softly; Speak Sweetly" The background of the slogan was also colorful and glittering. I am sure I would not need to explain the meaning of this phrase in depth and hence just thought of sharing this quote with others too. Thanks to Central Bank of India for sharing out the nice slogan.
