"Because I Fly,
I laugh more than other men.

I know how the clouds feel.

"The Man He Killed", the immortal poem by Thomas Hardy

Had he and I but met
By some old ancient inn,
We should have set us down to wet
Right many a nipperkin!

But ranged as infantry,
And staring face to face,
I shot at him as he at me,
And killed him in his place.

A big break: My Experiences with blogging published in a traditional medium- Newspaper

Blogging straight from the heartland

8 Jul 2007, 0003 hrs IST,Pallavi Srivastava,TNN

Did you know that chittha is Hindi for blog in internet jargon? Just as 'archive' is abhilekhagaar and 'home page' is mukh prishtha . When it comes to blogging, language clearly is not a barrier. Neither is the location of the blogger, it seems. And Vishwajaal (that's the Internet) is fast gaining a thriving community from the smaller cities and towns of India.

An Introduction to (Indian) Combined Defence Services Examination (CDSE), with Suggested Reading

Combined Defence Services Examination (CDSE) is one of the many ways to enter the Indian Military. Others include:
  • via written exams like NDA, CDSE
  • on the basis of graduation (Like BSc, BTech etc)
  • on the  basis on NCC certificates, etc
In my opinion, a candidate should try all options and give as many SSBs as they can.
