Some words of appreciation for Guys/gls of JNU-MCA

Hello folks ,

I took admission in JNU-MCA in 2007 . I was not from computer background , and first time in any professional course .

It may be a bit funnier for you but that was my first arrival to New Delhi when I took admission in JNU. I was quite wondered and feeling restless . As i came JNU I faced a short phase of intro (Now I really miss those days). All this helped me to interact with my batch mats . I remember one incident , i was feeling cold and I slept late in night , when i opened my eyes in morning I saw that my whole batch was standing near the gate of room with a bottle of cough syrup . I was touched . I was not missing my home . Here I have list of some guys and girls who really inspired and helped me in a true sense . Here we go –

1.  Sunil K.      This guy has an engine called “XINE” , hey don’t laugh . Really i have never seen such energetic guy . No matter how late  in night ,how far away you are when ever you want him to present there , he’ll be .

2.  Mahesh      What to say about this guy . He always kept his moral aloft no matter how difficult situations are. Always eager to learn new things , yeah dancing swimming and many more.

3.   Mayankesh    My roomy , one of the most talented guy that my batch got . Very good sense of humor , you can’t feel bore in his company .

4.   Shekhar    Hey my “chacha” , how can i forget to place him in the list . Some times he will irritate  you but i can bet you will still want his company . Matured guy who knows how to handle the things . Whenever counting is done for “fadoo bande” he always secures top of the chart . But please someone tell him that reduce some weight . Rest is cool.

5.   Neeraj S.     Last but not least , this guy came in touch with me in 2nd sem properly. He is the man who influenced me deeply. No matter what’s my problem technical or nontechnical he used to be always there to help me . I have learnt a lot of things from him and I feel proud by addressing him as a friend . Kudos to nee !!!

Wake up sid – movie of the month

hello folks ,

My mid sem exams are going on and i am quite busy in study . But at the same time one of the most awaited movie “Wake up sid” released and I couldn’t control myself from watching it. This movie is starred by Ranveer Kapoor , Konkona sen sharma , Rahul Khanna ,Anupam Kher, Supriya Pathak . This is the first movie directed by Ayan Mukharjee and he has shown what he got . Very soft romantic comedy which turns to be a family movie in last half of movie .

From my point of view , this is the first movie in which Ranveer really acted and what to say about Konkona , she is usually superb .

The movie starts off in a light mood, where Ranbir is shown lazily preparing for his college exams. Later he meets Konkona in a late night party, who has just arrived in Mumbai and becomes her first friend in the city. With more e-mail exchanges and Ranbir helping her decorating her new flat, a friendly relationship starts building between the two. But all this just keeps happening in a very laid off manner and the viewer desperately waits for something more interesting to unfold on the screen. Till intermission the only scene which rises above the usual stuff is the interview scene between Rahul Khanna & Konkona.

In the second half, as Ranbir leaves his parent’s house, the movie starts endorsing live in relationship with a cool attitude. Along with that, the story has the same old clashes between rich and middle class ways of living with an added rotten plot of two love triangles incorporated lightly into the script. Keeping more emphasis on the main characters, the writers strangely leave out the parents (Anupam Kher & Supriya Pathak) out of the narration and bring them in whenever they feel like. According to the script the parents don’t even care to know the whereabouts of their only son, after leaving his house in anger.

However, the movie has its moments with few worth watching scenes representing the current generation. One, when both Ranbir and his friend laugh at the break up story. Two, when Konkona and Ranbir play around with water bottles and three the birthday scene at Konkona’s flat. With more such scenes, the movie could have been the latest talk of the town among the younger generation. Moreover, a completely predicable climax also leaves the viewer less entertained in the end. The climax required a great amount of trimming since the movie drags a lot towards its concluding moments.

Music of the movie will not disappoint you , yeah it’s true that songs are nothing capable of making you to go dance but still you can’t ignore them , they already secured their place on top of the charts.Cinematography is really superb and catches Mumbai(I have to use mumbai here not bombay as Raj Thakrey will not allow me to live on this planet, lolzz !!!) in a cool manner .Last but not least , supriya pathak has performed her role in a very descent way . She has just done the role of a mother who doesn’t have much knowledge of english but still she tries her level best to learn it everyday so she could be her son’s friend , could talk him in his manner , could manage herself not to embarrass his son in front of his friends . Really very touchy role she has performed .

a shot of movie –

wake up sid, saare pal kahe , wake up sid chal kahin chale !

wake up sid, saare pal kahe , wake up sid chal kahin chale !

The movie “Wake Up Sid” has a very interesting plot of knowing your hidden talents, where Ranbir finds out that he has got a great unexplored talent of photography

Finally kudos to ranveer , supriya and konkana and ayan. You all have made this movie worth watchable .

Some interesting C code …

Hello friends ,

I was just surfing the net late in night and then I came to see some interesting C codes . So here we go-

1) Suppose if one want to know the program name through the execution of code itself , then code for this is –

#include<stdio.h>

int main()

{

printf(“the source file name is %s\n”,__FILE__);

return 0;

}

What happens here in this program , __FILE__ is actually a macro which stands for the file name in which program is kept in.

Just use this keyword in the program and compiler will do the rest .

2) Suppose if we have a situation in a program where we are taking an input which is not going to be used then we have to use a variable to store that input like scanf(“%d”,&a) , means wastage of memory . But we have a technique to avoid this –

What we do for this , just use the scanf statement like this –

scanf(“%*d”);

by using * here we force scanf to scan input from the standard input but it won’t assign to any variable .(This is scanned in a buffer of sufficient size and you don’t need to worry about that !

This section will be continued , wait for the next post !

Till then happy coding , 🙂

#include<stdio.h>

int main()
{
printf(“the source file name is %s\n”,__FILE__);
return 0;
}#include<stdio.h>
int main()
{
printf(“the source file name is %s\n”,__FILE__);
return 0;
}

Love you Leonidas !

Hello friends ,

Well I am a newbie to Linux distro , just moved  to it about 6 months ago .

I was using ubuntu 8.10 (intrepid) but i found myself in trouble while changing the theme and I got stuck. Then my friend Neeraj has suggested me to try fedora 11  live CD . I never used live cd of fedora before  so i was little  bit worried . But then i take a little bit risk and installed Fedora 11 in my machine .

Surprisingly it took only 10 minutes to install and now my system is working better . Fedora 11 has many new features that were not present in Fedora 10 like – ext4 file system , 20 seconds start up time (Ubuntu 9.04 claims 19.4 sec boot up time), automatic fonts and mime installer , firefox 3.5 , gcc 4.4 , gnome 2.26 , python 2.6 and many more . Some of aforementioned changes may not be in live CD , but you can install it if you have internet connection . Here is the screen shot of my desktop –>

Leonidas ---> cool look !

Leonidas is roaring !
