India Poised

I was surfing the web this evening and came upon a video (where else but youtube):
These kind of videos always seem so inspiring - however, short that inspiration lasts!

I was curious about this whole Tum Chalo To Hindustan Chale concept. Living in the US, I have not kept with all the patriotic themes that run India. So, as I searched for more, I found a couple more. The first one is by Big B. His diction is amazing. Shot in Black and White, this 2 minute clip is captivating.

Here is another recited by Gulzar

I know we have come a long way in terms of technology, economic powers, military might and so on. I sure hope we go on to achieve larger things...

Madhva Vijaya 2

Here is the next part of Madhva Vijaya. Obviously, I have little to say - I am just not qualified to comment on such a work.
So, all subsequent postings will follow with just a link

Vadiraja Namane

It is hard to upload larger files to ijigg and stream it directly from this page. So, I have gone to another source. Not ideal, but it works.
Here is the first such 'larger' file. Its called 'Vadiraja Namane'

Photos from Shuttle

I have always been interested in photography. But, I have never enjoyed pictures of space (like pictures of distant stars, nebulae) or of the deep sea (small planktons, bio luminescent fish). Here is an exception - these are pictures of the world we live in. Taken from 200 miles above the earth....

Ajax Goodness

No matter where I am, I love to follow Indian cricket. Agreed, I have not been able to keep pace with all the changes, but when time permits (and time zones allow), I love to follow events.
The google of Cricket has been I have found the site overwhelmed at times and the interface a little too cluttered. There are times when I have multiples sites like yahoo, cricbuzz, and a whole bunch of sites @ the same time - some are good with their interface, others better with commentary and so on.
I also am closely following Adobe's Air
which has made its way into eyecare too in the electronic health record (EHR) category - see here where they use Flex technology.
So, where am I going with all this? Adobe Goodness + Cricket Passion = Cricket Nirvana.
There is a desktop application which requires you to download Adobe Air and then the client. The whole process takes a few minutes and very easy to follow. Here is where it all begins
I liked the interface, although the colors could be toned down a little....
But overall a refreshing new approach.
