2) Cauvery In A Puddle: The 3 page article starts "The total hijack of the South's rich classical arts into airless, Brahmins-only monopolies is stifling genuine growth" and ends "Perhaps only a realisation that monopoly runs counter to the grain of art. For now, they're caught in a dark warp, waiting for light."

Interesting read...

Do not miss the Rants and Raves for this article too !

If you are a Tamil Brahmin... donot get offended... someone is expressing his point of view... Any criticism is good for growth... Let us look for ways to improve the situation...

If you have not watched tamil film 'Nandanaar'... please do watch it :-)

4) Navigating isn\'t fun: To the user, each successive screen is the equivalent of a new window or dialog in conventional software. My axiom is: "A window is another room. Have a good reason to go there." If the user is working on information on one screen, don't send her to another screen to work on that same information.

5) AlterNet -- 13 Questions for Bush about America\'s Anti-terrorism Crusade: Mainstream journalists in the United States often function more like a fourth branch of government than a feisty fourth estate. If anything, the patterns of media bias that characterize sycophantic reporting in "peacetime" are amplified during a war or a national security crisis.

6) Knowledge@Wharton - Confessions of a Recovering Workaholic: For many years Jonathan Lazear spent long hours building a literary agency whose success brought him the usual trappings - large house, new cars, expensive vacations. It wasn't until he realized that his work habits had led him to ignore virtually every other part of his life that he stepped back - and wrote a book. In The Man Who Mistook His Job for a Life, Lazear talks about being addicted to work and offers advice to help readers avoid the same fate.

11) New Scientist : Interview with Stephen Wolfram: Meet the people shaping the future of science

Principia Mathematica III

He was a child prodigy, publishing his first paper at 15. Now Stephen Wolfram says he has created a new kind of science based on simple computer programs rather than equations. It's a bold claim, but it has taken him 20 years--ten of them thinking and working late into the night, and publishing nothing. By a nice irony, that intellectual space was bought by the millions he made out of Mathematica, a computer program that makes complicated mathematics doable for ordinary mortals. Now, at 41, he's busy gearing himself up for the glare of publicity as he prepares to publish the fruit of all those years. Marcus Chown caught up with Wolfram--at 3 am

14) Culture Shock: Traditional Cultural Patterns Surprise Product Developers : In yesterday’s one-size-fits-all world, a company could often migrate something that was a hit in the U.S. or Europe by tweaking its language and advertising and funneling a lot of money into local marketing efforts. Germany’s Mercedes-Benz, for example, traded on its reputation for building highly engineered automobiles to drive into markets the world over. Japan’s Sony Corp. found that its knack for building compact, economical, and reliable electronics, such as the Walkman, struck a chord around the globe. Coca-Cola Co. and Philip Morris’s Marlboro cigarettes traded on their "American-ness" to create large foreign followings.

17) How to survive a Heart attack:

 How to survive a Heart attack - Please Read... You can save 
your own life

To all my friends for precautionary measure.

A heart attack can happen to anyone
Let's say  it's 6:15 p.m. and you're driving home (alone of
course),after an unusually hard day  on the job. You're really 
tired,
upset and frustrated.  Suddenly you start experiencing severe 
pain in
your chest  that starts to radiate out into your arm and up into 
your
jaw.

You are only about five  miles from the hospital nearest your 
home;
unfortunately  you don't know if you'll be  able to make it that
far.What can you  do?

You've been trained in CPR but the  guy that taught the
course neglected to tell you how to perform it on  yourself.

HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE

Since many people are alone  when they suffer a heart
attack, this article seemed to be in order. Without help, the
person whose heart stops beating properly and who begins to 
feel faint,
has only  about 10 seconds left before losing  consciousness.
However, these victims can  help themselves by coughing
repeatedly  and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken
before each  cough, and the cough  must be deep and 
prolonged, as when producing  sputum from deep inside the 
chest.

Deep  breaths and a cough must be repeated about every two 
seconds
without let up  until help arrives, or until the heart is  felt
to be beating normally again. Deep breaths get oxygen into the
lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep  
the
blood circulating.

The squeezing  pressure on the heart also helps it regain
normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack  victims can get to a
hospital.

Tell as many other people as possible about this, it could
save their lives! If everyone who gets  this sends it to ten people, 
you can  bet that we'll save at least one life.

You need to have engineers who evaluate themselves by how well their work fits customer needs (the day that your engineers pat themselves on the back for how good their code looks internally is the day that your company dies; you need engineers who pat themselves on the back when a customer is happy with the product and writes another check)...

23) Osho: Only a ripe fruit falls: One of the greatest problems...it will appear very paradoxical, but this is true: before you can lose your ego, you must attain it. Only a ripe fruit falls to the ground. Ripeness is all. An unripe ego cannot be thrown, cannot be destroyed. And if you struggle with an unripe ego to destroy and dissolve it, the whole effort is going to be a failure. Rather than destroying it, you will find it more strengthened in new subtle ways. This is something basic to be understood: the ego must come to a peak, it must be strong, it must have attained an integrity -- only then can you dissolve it. A weak ego cannot be dissolved. And this becomes a problem.

26) On Trial : Are Tech Companies Destroying Morale? : On "trial": Adobe, Cisco Systems, Hewlett-Packard, Intel, Lucent Technologies, and Sun Microsystems. The charges: Ruining internal morale with pay cuts, early retirement schemes, forced vacations and corporate doublespeak; reducing strategic flexibility by hanging on to too many workers or firing the best. The prosecution: Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, this is a case about pain. Scared of the financial, emotional, and legal pain of firing workers now and having to hire and train more of them when the economy picks up again, technology firms are doing whatever it takes to keep people on the payroll. For more on this case, check out the article...

27) Why Carnatic Music?: As a Westerner interested in Carnatic music, I am frequently asked to explain my interest and to articulate what makes South Indian music special. Both Indians and Westerners ask the same questions. Since I did not grow up with it, but rather chose it for myself from among a broad range of world traditions, Carnatic music is special indeed. There is always a sense in which cross-cultural interactions serve not only to broaden one's horizons, but also to set one's own cultural identity more strongly in relief. My more direct and natural interest in Western traditional music has been nourished by an appreciation for Indian music, and the same can hopefully apply in reverse. Here I hope to describe some points in common, as well as some of the strengths of Carnatic music from my perspective.

28) A Gentle Introduction to South Indian Classical (Karnatic / Carnatic) Music: Many of us have grown up in India, where we were exposed to Indian classical music in one form or another. However, if you are not from a musically inclined family, the odds are that you perceived classical music to be something esoteric that only a selected few could understand and appreciate. An occassional devotional song or a 'classically tuned' film song would have made you stop and take note. Your curiosity could have been aroused. But, you may have quickly ignored the instinct and made a beeline for the usual pursuits in life. Even if you were interested enough to find out about classical music, you did not know what books to read or who to talk to. Even if you managed to talk to someone, it is likely that the person made you feel inadequate about your lack of musical abilities or proceeded to give you a long lecture about music with a million buzzwords that confused you and weaned you off your curiosity. It is unfortunate that there is an almost total lack of simple, readable, introductary texts on Indian classical music, especially when compared to volumes and volumes of elementary books available on Western Classical music. No wonder an average college-educated person in the USA is at least mildly knowledgeable about Western classical music whereas an average Indian is by and large ignorant about the technicalities of Indian classical music. This primer is a feeble attempt to introduce Karnatic music in a gentle way, in a language presumably we all can understand. I want to be able to rekindle your interest and help you discover some of the 'method' and grammar of Karnatic music. Even though these notes are aimed at introducing Karnatic music, a lot of of what I have to say also apply to Hindustani Classical music. This primer is obviously not meant for experts. I have intentionally kept this text simple. read everything

29) Carnatic Music Primer: "Nature has endowed this universe with many beautiful life forms, of so many different shapes, sizes and abilities. Most animal forms have the ability to produce sounds and some of them even have the capability to communicate using varied sounds. Man is unique in that he can express his thoughts using sound." This is how Swami Jayendra Saraswathy, the Sankaracharya of Kanchipuram, introduces the Kamalaambaa Navaavarna Kritis of Muthuswamy Dikshithar. The ability to express thoughts through sounds has evolved into an art which we call music. Music can thus be defined as an art form that arranges sounds in a fashion that follows certain natural principles and provides that special inner feeling of happiness and contentment. It is important to note that the basic principles are natural and thus the theory of music is only an attempt by man to rationally explain what is already beautiful. As a fringe benefit, this rationalization helps in understanding the inherent beauty of music and creates increasingly higher levels of appreciation in the listener. more

35) The Human Rights Declaration: Hypocrisy of a barbarous society: One of the most fundamental things to be always remembered is that we are living in a hypocrite society. Once, a great philosopher was asked: "What do you think of civilization?" The philosopher said, "It is a good idea, but somebody has to change the idea into a reality. Civilization has not happened yet. It is a dream of the future." But the people who are in power -- politically, religiously, socially -- are in power because civilization has not happened. A civilized world, a mature man, needs no nations -- all those boundaries are false -- needs no religions, because all those theologies are simple fictions. The people who have been for thousands of years in power -- the priests, the politicians, the super-rich, they have all the powers to prevent human evolution. But the best way to prevent it is to convince man, "You are already civilized," to convince man, "You are already a human being. You need not go through a transformation, it is unnecessary." And man's weakness is that knowing perfectly well there exists no such thing as civilization, there exists no such thing as human sensitivity, still he starts believing in all the lies that the politicians have been speaking, the priests have been preaching, the educationists have been teaching -- because it seems simpler to just believe, you don't have to do anything for it. To recognize the fact that you are not yet a man creates fear. The very ground underneath your feet disappears. Truth makes you utterly naked -- naked of all lies, naked of all hypocrisies. That's why nobody wants truth; everybody believes that he has got it.

37) Intermittent Aberrations: Can Mature Companies Innovate?: A whole literature has grown up around the apparently intractable hostility between innovation and bureaucracy, between those who create and those who control. Smart and speedy start-ups blindside mature companies with their inventiveness then grow up into mature companies and are outsmarted in their turn. The only way for innovation to survive in mature companies is to isolate the creators from the managers in protected enclaves. If this is true, it means that it is virtually impossible for sustained innovation to be built into the everyday operation of mature companies; it can only ever be an intermittent aberration.

48) My Happiness Purpose: copied from ( What's the Point? by Carl P. E. dos Santos ( AdventureLiving. com - motto : Do you prefer to live life or watch it slide by? )

My own memories and the memories locked in the heads of the people I care about are the most important things in my life. Therefore, my purpose in life is to enhance my memories and enhance the memories belonging to other people.

What's the Point?

What is important to me is what I do with my time on this tiny planet. The question is, "what should I do?" I answered that question a few years ago and have enjoyed my answer since. It all starts with my definition of our lives. I cannot define life itself, I do not believe anyone can, but our lives on this planet can be defined. Our lives are collections of experiences, choices, and actions. That's it. Choices and actions are obvious. Experiences include things like emotions, love, thoughts, sensory input, etc. Can you think of anything in our lives that is not an experience, choice, or action? I can't.

What is the point of defining life in such simple and general terms? It shows that the only things we can gain from this life are the memories of our experiences and possibly spiritual salvation or other spiritual benefits if you are religious. Given that our choices and actions and the choices and actions of the people around us shape our experiences, we must consider our choices well; they define our lives.

My own memories and the memories locked in the heads of the people I care about are the most important things in my life. Therefore, my purpose in life is to enhance my memories and enhance the memories belonging to other people. Given that, I decided one of the ways I can enhance my own memories is by experiencing many different adventures, hence all my experiences skydiving, SCUBA diving, traveling, exploring the woods, watching nature, etc. How I enhance the memories of the people I care about varies from person to person, but I try to help each person have a slightly better life.

By enhancing other people's experiences, we expand the power and duration of our life's influence on this planet. I have decided to attempt to expand the direct influence of my life beyond just those people I have met and try to touch the lives of complete strangers. That's why I built this web site, why I respond with as much help as I can to all the email I receive, and why I try to encourage people to donate more stories, photos, and videos. I am trying to encourage my visitors to experience something new. I know that I am only touching a small percentage of them, but when people write to me telling me that my site inspired them to try something new, I feel an immense joy. I know that I have helped improve the memories of someone else. Even if I had only received one email telling me about one person, I would have felt all the effort I put into this site was worth it.
