Pre publish days

As the D-day approaches, I keep finding various 'important' works to be done.

I am talking about publishing of my current app - Financial Calculator in android. It is almost ready. But some how I am not going towards publishing it. Call it procrastination, fear of bad reviews or just unwillingness to finish any task.

In fact there will be so many works to do. Not just testing. Some graphics resources need to be given to UI team (me), an all round testing should be done by testing team(me) and some nice catchy one line explanation and other descriptions should be written by some other team - me again.

Instead I try doing other works - and not just TV or standup comedy watching. I wrote a blog about queues in data structure. I sewed and added another layer to my razai, washed and dried it.

And finally when I started testing, instead I started adding new features to the app. How great the app would be if the records can be filtered using banks. And how insufficient without that feature. So I coded that for one activity, started testing it and then some how was not happy about the appearance.

All through these I had one thought going round and round. What does one do, if people all around want that person dead. Of course I trying to quotes some news article about Isreal. That situation develops huge amounts of grit. Or does it?

And then I came to TV and all hell broke loose. I started feeling pity for myself, started feeling bad for myself. Feeling depressed. And started the vicious cycle of eating, TV and uncomfortable feeling in the stomach, eat some more etc.

Now it is 9 pm and I am want to fix that code, blog my ramblings or may be even blog data structures.

Afternoon blues. Some home recipe MUST be certainly and immediately found out for this thing. 

PS: I did publish the app today. Twice. That's another story. So download the financial calculator app for all your fd/rd/emi calculations NOW.

Someshwara shataka

ಚರಿಪಾರಣ್ಯದ ಪಕ್ಷಿಗೊಂದು ತರು ಗೊಡ್ಢಾಗಲ್ ಫಲಂ ಈವಿದಾ
ಮರಗಳ್ ಪುಟ್ಟವೆ ಪುಷ್ಪವೊಂದು ಬಳಲಲ್  ಭ್ರಂಗಕ್ಕೆ ಪೂವಿಲ್ಲವೆ
ನಿರತಂ ಸತ್ಕವಿಗೋರ್ವ ಗರ್ವಿದಂ ನೃಪ ತಾಂ ಲೋಭಿಯಾಗಲ್ ನಿಜಂ
ಧರೆಯೊಳ್ ದಾತರು ಪುಟ್ಟರೆ ಹರ ಹರಾ ಶ್ರೀ ಚೆನ್ನ ಸೋಮೇಶ್ವರ

Will a bird in the wild go hungry just because one fruit tree dries up? If one flower withers, will not the bee get any flowers? If one haughty king is miserly, will there be no patrons (of poetry) on this earth?


ಕೆಲವಂ ಬಲ್ಲವರಿಂದ ಕಲ್ತು ಕೆಲವಂ ಶಾಸ್ತ್ರಂಗಳೋದುತಂ
ಕೆಲವಂ ಮಾಳ್ಪವರಿಂದ ಕಂಡು ಕೆಲವಂ ಸುಜ್ಙಾನದಿಂ  ನೋಡುತಂ
ಕೆಲವಂ ಸಜ್ಜನಸಂಗದಿಂದಲರಿಯಲ್ ಸರ್ವಜ್ಞನಪ್ಪಂ ನರಂ
ಪಲವಂ ಪಳ್ಳ ಸಮುದ್ರವೈ ಹಾರ ಹರಾ ಶ್ರೀ ಚೆನ್ನ ಸೋಮೇಶ್ವರ

Learning from wise men, reading from good books, observing others  work and learning from good company, these are the ways a man becomes omni-scient (sarvajna - one who knows everything). Just like many streams join together to make an ocean.

P.S.
1) If you find some of my wordings in this shataka is wrong, please let me know. It is a 40 year old memory.
2) There are also many tripadis(poems with 3 lines ,…

Shantam papam

I plucked some leaves from my kitchen garden for (cooking) making tambuli in the evening. Imagine, I who can not read small letters, even in broad daylight, plucked some dodda patre leaves in the dark kitchen garden. I tried dry roasting them with coriander leaves. Suddenly I saw something whitish. A worm? What sin I was about to commit? I was about to feed non-veg, that too a worm, to two pious brahmins. Threw out the whole thing. Should I wear glasses even when I am cooking?
I hate these chalis. So never wear them. It hurts my nose. I go to a super market. I read a box of something to buy. I can not read its price. I ask the sales boy/girl, what is the price. They will think that I am illiterate. But see, I can't help it. Can't these people print atleast prices in large print for forty plus people.
After a long time today, I tried reading my daily horoscope from newspaper. Could not read anything. At this exponential decay rate, the day is not far when my vision would be zer…

How to get straight hair

Straight hair, silky and shiny hair, lustrous hair!!! How do these terms matter to us, who have crossed the expiry date? But when I saw that one of the prizes is Galaxy Tab, I decided anything for a Galaxy tab.

Step 1: Head out in my scooty which also looks tired and aged. Come near a Kirana store and stop. But where is the Kirana store, it has changed into a super market. There goes the plan of asking the shop keeper to give me one bottle of Sunsilk straight hair shampoo.

Step 2: Go to a super market and head for the shampoos section and take out a bottle and move it close to your eyes and then far, then again near and again far. Shoppers around me wonder if I am looking at some optical illusion. No I can read only it is sunsilk, but is it straight hair shampoo or ordinary or anti-dandruff or some thing else. Why do I always forget to wear glasses when out shopping?

Step 3: Ask the sales girl whether this is straight hair shampoo from sunsilk, giving her the bottle. She first stares…
