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:

  1. 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 the message.
  2. If the person replies in a way that is convincing and there is a bona fide previous knowhow, then I can add him to the network. If he is going to be another jackass sending out the same canned response crap back, then I would 'Report As Spam' and trash it.
  3. If the issue persists, I would have LinkedIn CustHelp to take the whip on them to have their asses laminated.
  4. If the issue still persists, I would parallely choose to start an investigation on him based on his profile and have his employer and other circles known about his perceived hysteria.

I admit that (4) would take a long time since it also involves a harmonious coordination amongst my other schedules and action items in my Todolist. The bottomline of the story is simple. Let us keep casual cropdusters and scumbags away from social networking communities and keep it beautiful.

Let me know how you tackle such menace and let us help grow a prosperous community by keeping off such vicious pests. As a salient example, my today's latest trap was a recruitment consultant called ( from Consult One India. In this particular case, all steps (1) through (4) have been completed.

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…
