The Signal Of Joy

One year back I was in New Delhi for a training in my company
which deals in Telecom software.
During that time, we all people went to a Disco for party which
was titled 'CDMA'. I was accompanied by people from
different parts of India and we had loads of fun.

I wrote a poem in that clamorous environment which is a
mixture of telecommunication and literature.

Emotions pouring through the body,
Feelings are sublime.
Warm triggers flowing in the neural structure;
Only frequency of joy varying with time.

Music beats analogous to discrete signals,
Welcome transforms cherished in life.
Cerebrations vanishing to a point;
Smothered by a 'jovial' knife.

People involved in convergent talk,
Multiplexing the threads of happiness.
Frequencies of different directions
Encoding India into a sense of oneness.

The techies emulating the demigods,
Their schemes - GSM, Telephony & CDMA.
Scenario reliquishing the mind;
Enjoyment - The synonym is CDMA.

I'm a fan of ROCK

I started listening to Rock music coz of my cousins who are die hard GUNS N' ROSES fans.
This wall painting was done by me on their request. It was completed swiftly and to my surprise, it turned out quite good.

Some more tattoos done by me on their request can be found here.

Happy Diwali

The festival of lights,
The music of crackers,
The sweetness of delicacies,
And the blessings of the goddess,
Usher a new era in your life.

I'm frustrated

I have never wanted to write about my life at my work place because it has always been boring and frustrating. But I'm forced to write today about it. I don't get any chance to innovate and apply my mind. I call myself an engineer and the pathetic software industry doesn't even give me chance to do the basics of what an engineer must do.

That's weird. Isn't it? Yes it is. But that is the truth.

The basic of computer science is basic Math. The truth is people would find it hard many times to implement basic math in the Indian IT industry. I don't want to talk much about the industry and its process. I want to throw light on one of the surreal experiences I had, recently. It has been 2 years in the industry and I never had a team. I have been working all alone without any team. The so called team members are sitting far away and they never gave any help of any kind. I have a senior at work place that unfortunately speaking, gets agog at my questions most of the times.

I encountered a problem during the development of an application. I restructured the practical problem into a theoretical question of basic math with 3 unknown variables. I could have solved this scenario by using algebra but the best way would have been to use probability as estimation of one of the variables could be done on runtime by some analysis. I am a bit cranky with probability. So I asked my senior to help me out. Instantaneously, his face got pale. He seemed helpless and his answer was, "I don't know." I asked him that whether he can inquire in the office about the same. He said, "It is highly unlikely that anybody would know probability in depth." Finally, I solved the problem using algebra and algorithmic techniques. I derived a formula and implemented that in the program.
But, I was very frustrated.

That incident makes me laugh at myself. I expect my seniors to be more intelligent than me. I expect them to be a better engineer than me.
Sadly though, that is not the case.
