Disadvantage Jayalaitha in Piyush case?

An excellent activist in Salem has been arrested, his name is Piyush. He arranged a people movement and cleaned up a dirty lake in Salem and made it a bird sanctuary. Many good things are said about him which I don’t know. But now he is behind bars for questioning a construction of bridge which is not constructed in  right way its claimed. Its said that he was arrested and tortured in jail by 30 police officials who bet him continuously.

Many see this not as a mere arrest, as the arrest of Piyush has no legality behind it. Its extremely illegal act by police, people say. People are gossiping that if some one tries to rise in Tamilnadu and if Jayalalitha knows about it and gets afraid of that person, she would send police to conduct harassment raids and arrests on them so that they would be scared and would leave public life.

It has happened many times in Tamilnadu. There was a man here who sang about evils of drinking alcohol which is morally the right thing to do, Jayalalitha got him arrested and none knows where he is now. Sale of Alcohol feeds money to AIADMK which is governed by Jaya. Jayalalitha, its claimed by the public that she delayed the release of Vishwaroopam and Thalaiva films as she doesn’t want Kamal and Vijay to get fame.

It is said that she doesn’t like any one else growing above her and becoming famous. That might be true, as if you see AIADMK cutouts, you can only see jayas pic and not the pic of local leaders. If Jaya is dead today, none knows who will lead AIADMK tomorrow, whereas DMK has a clear hereditary plan (which is dirty in many ways too as its designed to favor only few families).

During Chennai floods we people rose up. The government watched our city drown, but soon people set up their own adhoc help networks and brought relief to the city.  A AIADMK minister named Valamarmathy, and others tried to disrupt the supplies that people from other regions sent to Chennai, because they were afraid that Jayalitha’s inefficiencies in managing the flood will be known to people. They seized supplies of food, stuck Jaya’s pic on it and made it look as though its supplied by the government. Help groups which refused to stick Jayas pic on their supplies were harassed and their food thrown out to make it useless.

Now the High Court has hailed Piyush’s work and has said people like him are needed for the society. So is it disadvantage Jaya? She may claim to be our leader, but does people really like her?


Engineer must be an engineer

Bravery is needed. Without it there would have been no Indian independence. Surely the Brits were mismanaging the country and wave upon wave of people arose against them, until finally the ahimsa movement broke out. It wasn’t the ahimsa movement that got us the independence, it had the power to change the minds of Indian army who then became disloyal to the oppressors. Not knowing what to do and while Hitler had almost destroyed UK and bankrupted it, the Brits had to quit our nation.

We could have failed and still be under the oppressors, but we rose despite many failures. We still are under oppressors, this time the oppressor has our own skin color, they are our politicians. Let see how brave the youth are now 🙂

Bravery is very important for nation building. One must be brave in home and one must be brave in office. This blog is about being brave in office, in tech offices especially. Today the state is such that most tech companies are run by people who don’t know tech. People who don’t know what freedom of thought is. People who don’t know how science, logic and human thought works.People who don’t know what humanness is. But these people have risen to the top of the ladder and control more intelligent people than them. This raises a conflict.

Recently I reviewed a project that made my head spin, lot of silly mistakes in it. When I did ask the developers they said they knew, they were demanded to produce features in no time. They had created almost unmaintainable software that was very difficult to understand. Now lets come back to nation building. Lets say a cop finds out that an MLA’s son had hit and run a child, should he go in the way of the oppressor and stand by the law? What you expect? If you claim yourself as an engineer, should you go by the way of management or strict engineering rules that would form a fine product?

I have been a consultant for long. I have simply refused payment and walked out of project because people above were stupid. When the management went stupid, I revolted, some times they yield, some times they showed me the way out, or I just came out. Almost all the products and companies I came out, are non existent now. They simply vanished.

Unless and until you are not producing a simple app that you are sure that you are using it for your personal purpose, you must apply best engineering and management practice to it. You must be brave enough to face the oppressor. You must believe yourself and must be sure enough that if shown the way out you can get a another job. You may keep hopping till you find a non stupid (they are rare though), but believe me, you will find one.

In I.T industry, humans are the primary resource, the way they are treated determines the fate of a project, organization and possibly the economy as a whole. As an engineer, one must be an engineer and must know to treat fellow engineer as gentlemen, this also mean that you code and stick to discipline so that future people feel easy to carry on your work. If you are job hugging and want to go in the way of stupids, your certificate may say that you are an engineer, but are you?

Power cuts in Sithalapakkam

Monday 11 July 2016 11:35:11 PM IST, Sithalapakkam

Sitting in my home, I am typing this blog in dark, well now the power came. My doubt is, why we are having power cuts. Yesterday I was watching Maalai Murasu T.V which was saying that Tamilnadu is producing excess power and is exporting power to Goa. Well, then why I have powercuts? Today there seem to be four powercuts at my home.

The weather is breezy, then are they cutting power because of the weather? Afraid that winds might cause the lines to cutt and fall down? I am not sure. Then when it is breezy in Poes Garden, is power in Jayalalithaas home getting cut too?

After all Jayalalitha is my servant, I pay her. I wonder how she could sleep well when her master is in dark? Wonder what heck work she and her predecessor Karunanidhi had done?

They say this and that. Though power situation has improved, why am I getting power cuts when I pay my bills properly? And when I can’t sleep, how the heck and who gave the right for my servants and former servants to sleep well?

Thinnai Restaurant in OMR is a cheat

On 7th of July 2016, me and my friends visited Thinnai restaurant in OMR. We visited because it was listed that Chicken briyani combo is 150 rupees.

Well, whats an chicken briyani combo? Usually you will have chicken briyani, with it some addition will be added, in Chennai it will be few pieces of Chicken 65 will be served with it and you will get a bottle of cool drink.

Thinnai’s chicken briyani combo was Rs 150/- , very competitively priced. None goes to thinnai because its a pricey hotel, worthless for the money it demands from us for the food. But this combo looked really good, so we went.

We met our ex-colleague there who was struggling with mutton briyani, the reason? It was rotten. The person in the next table too complained about that, but the waiter was unrelenting and never agreed to their demands and demanded them to eat. Me and my friend ordered the combo.

We were cheated. When the briyani for the combo arrived it was less than half the normal quantity that would be served! They cheated us. They gave only four pieces of chicken 65. It was boneless and tasted okay, but still there were inconsistencies. My friend received two slices of onion with 65, whereas I received only one.

The promised cool drink was never served, and when we asked for it, a small cool drink can which won’t even fill half a tumbler arrived. We were dismayed.

In short Thinnai openly cheats in the name of combo. To our shock, we found out it also serves rotten briyani. It would be great if you avoid it.

Beautiful Islamic Chants

Just woke up, probably Sithalapakkams mosque was calling people to pray to God. This time the chant was beautiful. For long the chant’s uttered in mosques in and around Siithalapakkam was done by donkeys. It was so worst, was just like reading a text rather than singing a song.

Long time ago even dogs joined these chants https://karthikeyanblogs.wordpress.com/2010/02/05/islamic-dogs/ , it was very interesting phenomenon! There seems to be some harmonic in the chants that made dogs howl too. Possibly some one could use the fact that Islam is a religion thats been recognized not only by humans, but even animals too!

Though I hate religion, and want all religions to be wiped from human mind and rationalism should exist in ones thought, these chants which I heard in this early hours sounded beautiful. Just as beautiful like looking at Islamic calligraphy. You may understand nothing about it, but the singer of the religious text was artistic.

I wonder why women don’t sing Kuran in loud speakers? I reckon it would be more beautiful. If Hinduism can refine itself to let women into Sabarimala, why on earth Islam is finding it difficult to let women take on the role of immams?

Wishing for Scottish independence

Brits are evil, they paupered my nation India and split it into two. Their well being is because they looted the colonies. Had Ireland had lot of wealth, the Brits would have taken it with iron fist. Still they abuse Irish sovereignty by occupying Northern Ireland. They abuse Argentina by occupying Falklands.

British head weight must end. For some reason Scottish people are looking like cowards. They did fight British bravely, but for some reason they had let Brits occupy them. Now at least people who are brave enough to shed of Britain have a chance to push for independence of Scotland.

While Brits, unable to compete in free economy are walling themselves, of which one activity is to come out of EU, the Scots want to be with the world, compete in the free economy and become a global citizen. As a first step, its better to break with Britain and face the world without the United Kingdom shackle.

Brits power must reduce, reduce till they are nothing. Possibly some nation must conquer them, give them famine just as they killed millions in Bengal famine in India, and Churchill laughed and found joy in it. May his soul rot in hell.

Telugu men should stop being prostitutes

June 9, 2016, 10:40 PM

Money for sex is prostitution. I was talking to my friend about my marriage and how expenses are spiraling out and how I am struggling, then a very senior Telugu guy (who is also my friend) came, he over heard my conversation and said that I must be receiving lot of money from the girls family and so I need not worry. He might have meant it as a joke, but i was hurt.

Its not just receiving money, when money for sex is received, its essentially prostitution. I am not a person who does that. Telugu people, that is their men are mostly prostitutes, so perhaps they assume other people as well are. They are one of the most highly paid prostitutes in India and perhaps the world, and they seems to be proud about it.

I am not defending people of my lingua the Tamils. Most Tamil men are prostitutes too. But definitely not like Telugus, everyone knows that. Telugu men with dignity should be ashamed of their culture and must turn the tide, but I don’t think thats happening.

Its not just prostitution, its about ones dignity. One must accept a life partner only if one is sure that he will be able to be a good company and is resourceful enough to satisfy her, else why need an marriage?

The worst thing is that Telugu guy equated me to him, a prostitute, some one who gets money to satisfy a girl. Never will I be a person like that, my dignity is my dignity.

To say that truth, even in my company I never raised a voice for my appraisal, what I get, I get. Being such a character, to see some one virtually calling me a prostitute is insulting. In fact dowry is an insult to dignity of entire manhood. I wish we men avoid it.
