Important Date   

Looks like the 23rd day of every month has got lot of importance in my life. Here

are some events:-

January 23  = Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose born (year 1897)

March 23  = Martyr's day (Bhagat Singh, Raj Guru & Sukhdev, year 1931)

April 23    = Joined Pramati (year 2003)

May 23    = Brother's b'day (year 1980)

June 23   = Sarithakka's b'day (year 1979)

Lemme see this list grow.

    Recently went to Jammu for visiting the "Vaishno Devi" Temple. If at all there's one thing that I wont ever forget about this trip, that would the following event that happened with us.
Shows how kind people can be.
   While roaming around the hills of the villages Krimachi & Mansar, (Udhampur district) we
(my brother, cousin and uncle's son) were close to being lost, but luckily found a settlement.
The lady from one of the houses came out and helped us by all means. She even invited us
to have lunch at their home (not even knowing who we were and where we from, humanity
at it's best). Not just this lady, others were as much willing to treat us with utmost hospitality.
This touched me. Can we attribute to the race or region? I dont think we south indian people
aint that open & helpful.

Bhagat Singh : A Great Leader / Enterpreneur

Saw the movie "The Legend of Bhagat Singh" made by Rajkumar Santhosi in Muppi's PC at
home. I was so impressed by Bhagat Singh's and his abilities that I was so sorry about
myself that till this age of 22 I wasn't aware of what really Bhagat Singh was. At most
what I knew abt him was that he was a great freedom fighter who was hanged with another
two fighters Rajguru & Sukhdev on 23rd March 1931. And our history books too mentioned
only that point. But after watching the movie realized how significant a role that he
and the organization Hindustan Socialist Republican Association had played in getting
Independence to India.

If you have the notion that all these revolutionaries were pure head-strong guys who
were ready to take up any sort of activity, means to pursue their goal without being
rational then you are wrong. Go better see the movie or read the articles at

Will write more abt this later.
Have been looking for the cvs command to list the modules available on the
server. Finally got it today.
