Happy Tamil New Year

Anaivarukkum En Eniya Puthaandu Nalvazhthukal :-) Okay… This translates to Happy New Year :-) As per the Tamil Calendar, Today the 5106th Year is Born, this year is called as “Parthiba” and the month is reset to “Chithirai”.

Hmm… it would have been fun if I’m at home !! Every new year day, my mom wakes me up in the morning and closes my eyes and would lead to the place of Kanni, the moment I open my eyes… gosh… it would be a feast…. I would see lot’s of Gold, Money, Fruits, Sweets, nuts, Flowers etc. it would be a pleasant sight @ the early morning, and this is a sign of a prosperous new year. And this would be followed by the specially cooked fresh breakfast…which includes Mango + Jaggery + Neem Flowers (i.e. Eat sweet, sour and bitter at the same time). Sadly, this year I woke up seeing my bright window and the roof and had my same old Flakes+apple+juice breakfast…. :) Poor Me… Somehow this year I couldn’t celebrate both English as well as Tamil new year?! Reason… Work… Deliverables… (Ah! I have a deliverable tomorrow). I Think this year is gonna be very workaholic.

In the Morning, I Thought I shall hear some Tamil language after a long time, so tuned in to Sun TV… some female movie star interview, and she was talking in *English*…. Whaat?! Okay next to Vijay TV… again some movie stars singing some songs with their hopeless voice…Ah! Forget it… may be bad idea to hear tamil in these channels :)

Somehow Tamil Calendar is not followed by many, almost none, except who had reached their 60’s or 70’s Age. My Granny never understands or accepts English calendar. She still follows the Tamil calendar. She would never understand, if I say her today is “April 14th” but she understands “Chithirai 1st” :-) Sadly, none of the new generation understands “Chithirai 1st”. English calendar has already taken that place… reason… Standardization. But, it’s always amazing to see that we had a calendar 5000 years ago, and a proper language as old as 5000 years or even more !!! and India had a great civilization when rest of the world were just barbarians, ruins or cripples. Simply Amazing.

Today is the new year for Malayalee’s & Kannadiga’s – Happy Vishu,
Today is the new year for bengali’s – Happy Naba Barsha
Today is the New year day for Sikh’s
And also for Srilankan’s - Happy Avurudhu Guyz :-)

Hi Logu, Happy New Year!!!

Well i'm definitely sure that u wudnt remember me. I met u at the anniversary meet of the CNUG at Tidel park last year and we spoke for sometime regarding development for Smartphones. I'm Ashwin, a final year CSE student from chennai... I thought that i'd just ping u 2 say Hi and wish u a happy and prosperous new year!!!.. Ping me too @ ashwin.murali@gmail.com regarding the MCP Certifications and how i shud go abt with them...


Thanks Guyz for the wishes :)

Regarding MCP, one suggestion would be not to use the exam dumps. This just spoils the spirit of the certification. Always, remember the objective is to learn/decipher the language/technology not the title. The title MCP is just a credit added to your resume/name. It’s very easy to score a 1000/1000 with the help of dumps, but what is the point? Aren’t we lying to ourselves? A costly lie for a title. So, learn and understand the technology, and may be you can use those dumps as practice exams before the day of the exam.

Also, utilize MSFT Skills assessment tests at http://assessment.learning.microsoft.com/test/home.asp and free test sites like Brainbench.

You can start with www.functionx.com, this site has good thoughtful tutorials, and C# tutorial is at http://www.functionx.com/vcsharp/index.htm. They are quite handy to get the basics right. Also, you should get a bundled combo of MS Press books specific to the certification.

Otherwise MCP is pretty easy, all you need is to stay cool and concentrate while answering the exams. Also, align yourselves to MCAD/MCSD based on your interests.

Learn as much as possible :) and sure I would be happy to help you wherever appropriate.

P.S: Regarding blogs, I have a few unfinished blogs, but time is the constraint. This should get over the weekend… shall finish them and update the blogs :) Thanks for reading my blogs.
