What’s wrong?

I was deeply engrossed in writing my next tech-blog. One familiar tone bewitched my attention. It was my mobile.

“Yep…”- me.

“Tell me bad things about Bangalore...” – voice of a man who never ask and think positive aspects.

Bangalore – Asia’s one of the fastest growing city. A Land of opportunities. India’s Silicon-Valley. Garden City. People with different culture, from different countries/regions. Indian’s Don for software industry...and this guy is looking for negative aspects?

I asked - “May I have a pleasure of knowing why this question is for?”

“Well, curious to check the positive aspects” – mind blowing reply.

“and what you are going to do with this public knowledge of positive aspects?” – I am worried now.

“hmm…soon after asking about ‘bad things’, you started collecting positive points, am I right?” – damn confident voice.

“That’s affirmative. How you are so sure?” – me anxious.

“Nothing special, it’s inherited. That’s why East India Company still exists. Its not vanished after 1947.”

Oh my god, how he can be my friend!!?? “What? Wait…What’s the connection?”

“You always try to express good or bests with you and expect chap in-front of you should get impressed and nod for whatever you say.”

“Not every time, but what’s wrong with it? This city is giving me bred and butter.”

“Indeed! but you need to evaluate the person whether he need your positive explanation or not and only then start selling your bests. Our emperors never did this evaluation. They allowed ‘them’ to start their business in our land. One small mistake built East India Company. After 200 years of struggle we thought it’s vanished.”

“Is that so, then where is it now?”

“Check your company ID card dude. Think, whom you are working for?”


I would have put thousand points to conclude this is an exaggerated and not well connected thought. But its food for thought. There is nothing wrong in this world. There are differences in opinions.

Why Akbar was Great?

I have fanatical interest to be acquainted with what made Indian emperors take influential decisions during their reign. Few great kings’ valuable decisions created a remarkable history.

When Akbar accepts the marriage proposal of Hindu King (Bharmal of Amer), he wishes to make an attempt to set an example for two culture and religions and convey the message of peace. Later, destiny takes him to the critical path of life having most depraved political and family oriented problems. Being a true great emperor, Akbar learns and conclude challenges by demonstrating his exceptional leadership qualities. With his verdicts, Akbar stands as an incomparable king of all time. “Jodha Akbar” – brings 16th-century incidents to life and shows beginning part of Akbar’s married life which was, in fact, a deal for political gain. This decision slowly unleashes Akbar’s loving life, internal dreadful politics, painfully desirous people around him and betraying family members.

Windows Service or Windows Task Scheduler?

Are you planning to create long running background process (in C#) and thinking to build a Windows service?

Then wait for a moment!

Windows Task scheduler (Start->Programs->Accessories-> System Tools-> Task Scheduler) can also be a decent choice!

"Windows Vista and higher windows (server) operating systems are offering matured Task scheduler with many advancements like Triggers, Actions, Conditions, failure recovery, email notifications, security and much more."
Its obvious that many programmers think Windows Service is easy to maintain and what it can do, task scheduler can’t. But now, it’s time to look at Windows Task Scheduler [also at Microsoft white paper] and see what great features it is offering.

When to go for Windows Service?
Okay, let me try to answer this popular question in one line. 

Windows Service is suitable for receiving service request 'anytime' and process 'instantly'.

Just think of anti-virus scanner, network port activity tracker…
