Mobile Photography

Morning started cloudy and drizzling, as I ran errands driving up and down DFW Metroplex I snapped few pictures from the mobile camera. Here they are....

Politician's Drama

Back home in India the elections are going on to elect a new government. Around this time every politician worth his salt will indulge in tactics to gain sympathy, support and finally garner enough votes to win. And of course once they win, politicians will get busy in their own lives... making money, partying, foreign junkets, transfers, getting their loyalists into key positions, etc.

Couple of days ago I received these e-mail forward of two images about two well known politicians in India. One young and inexperienced and another old and a tad too experienced. But both have one thing in common: Political Drama. If the younger one wanted to show that he is with the people in their struggle, the older one wanted to struggle for the people. But both ended making a fool of themselves in front of the thinking class (educated people in India who don't vote but comment liberally about what should be done to make the country developed).

Anyway the pictures are self explanatory, do take a look at them and let me know what you feel.

Rahul created a ripple by acting like a laborer.

Veteran politician Karunanidhi created a world record, the shortest Fast unto death. Yes the septuagenarian fasted for 4 hours by sleeping in air conditioned comfort. The fast started after breakfast and ended before lunchtime

I am sure Indian politicians would have made lot more money and achieved respectable fame if they had become comedians. But now they are making a joke of our country by behaving in this ridiculously comical fashion.

Playing Raquet Ball

Since coming to the US I have done lots of things for the first time in my life. Rollerskating, hiking through forests on a fenced up trail, exploring underwater caves, driving on the right side of the road, etc. Today I added one more thing to this list... Playing Racquetball. Well our new apartment has some cool sports facilities including a beautiful Racquetball court and the management company lends the equipment required, rackets and balls. We just need to get there and play when the court is free. And that is what we did this evening after I came back from college.

I found the game to be a highly intensive and fitness oriented game. As we chase ball in the wooden cage we will lose calories and gain strength. I like this game and hope to continue playing. Both here at the apartment and also outside when I get the opportunity.

Website and Hosting Solutions

I have been using the internet since the past 10-12 years and have seen how the world wide web has evolved. Initially the websites were meant for information, communication and little bit of entertainment. Over the years websites have transformed into portals which provide live news, information, videos and audio entertainment, interactive discussion platforms etc. All these has been possible because of two things 1) Advancement in technology and 2) Enhancement of hosting services.

A few years ago companies had one domain but now every corporate worth its name opts for multiple domain web hosting only. The virtual world has become a very competitive space and to remain at the top one has to constantly innovate and change strategies. One way to do it is to continuously upgrade websites and get better and faster hosting service. But finding a good website hosting company whose prices are competitive is the greatest challenge of every entrepreneur.

I recently came across this website aptly titled Web Hosting Geeks. This website is all about informing people about the top-10 best hosting service providers. Their list is constantly updated with new information about various aspects of website hosting, design, technologies, etc. I feel this is a very important reference guide for all those who are looking for website hosting services. This site could give them the right information and empower them to make informed decisions.

One of my favorite sections of this website is their blog. I love to read their well-written and informative blog posts on interesting topics such as Search Engine Optimization, web technologies, hosting, IFrames, etc. My suggestion to all of you reading this post is to visit Web Hosting Geeks and learn about website hosting and internet technology.
