Bill Gates to open doors of his heart to the world, stepping away from windows

Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates announced (Announcement Video) on Friday that he will be working part time at Microsoft and full time at Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation by July 2008. However Bill Gates insisted that "he is not leaving Microsoft" and will continue to serve as Chairman even after July, 2008.

It has been a phenonenal and legendary journey for Microsoft and Bill Gates. If it is not for Bill Gates and his Microsoft,  not many of us wouldn't have seen PC by this time. Despite the evolution of technology and greate entrepreneurs and competitors, still more than 90% of the desktops are powered by Microsoft Windows Operating system, a greatest of all feats, in a sense a miracle that only Microsoft could achieve in this cut throat competition era.

The Microsoft and the world of technology and business will miss a great and unparalleled visionary, but for a much greater and noble reason. With full time contributions from Bill Gates, the foundation now could expand its helping hand to more countries and give life to a lot more people. Bravo Bill Gates.You may be missed a little in the developing countries, but your presence will be now felt in the hearts of lot more people than you have won with your Windows. I read it as "Bill Gates is stepping away from windows to open doors of his heart to the world".

You Are What You Think People Think About You

There are about 6.7 Billion people in this world that we know of.  Whether you believe in ‘Creation’ or ‘Evolution’, this human race started with a tiny number. It is quite amazing to see how fast it multiplies. What is more amazing is that every single individual in that 6 billion crowd is born ‘unique’.  Quite literally, you are born to be one in a billion, whether you believe it or not. “ This was the Introduction to my latest and last speech in Toast Masters club, ‘One in a Billion’ as part of International Speech contest. 
As much as I believe that each one of us can be that 'one in a billion' personality, I admit the reality as I perceive it and some times feel alone in that belief.
A famous quote says 'You are what you think'. It is also true that 'you are what you think people think about you'. If you think people think you are smart, then you act smart and become smart. If you think people think you are dumb, you will become dumb even if you are not, a…

Cooking looks like an unforgiving art

When you are writing software, you always get a second chance. In fact, lots of chances to get it correct. You have compiler warnings, failed test cases and some times crashes alert you that something is not right and will give you a chance to correct. And you get literally unlimited chances to apply those corrections. 
Well, cooking looks to be totally unforgiving in this respect and on any given day, you may get just one chance to get it right. If you fail, you fail. Try again right away if you have patience of starting it all over. Or start over some time later or next day. But not much of a second chance to correct a mistake. 
More ruthless, when it comes to salt. If you put just a little more, even a tiny little more, it never hesitate to show what it got. Totally ruthless. End result will be a failed dish that no one will be able (and/or happy) to eat. And most dishes, you may not be able to add something little more to offset it.

Little trick I learned the hard way, start on …

Did NDTV Just Twisted Words?

I have recently spotted quite a few places where NDTV title doesn’t exactly say the same as the details in the article says. Lost in translation? or just plain twisting for journalistic sensationalism?Title says “'AAP doesn't treat women as humans,' says founder member Madhu Bhaduri as she quits”, but the quote in details says, slightly differently: “In this party, women are not considered humans” (see the text highlighted).Source : NDTV.comYou may say, they effectually mean the same thing. Is it? Even if they mean the same,  Why not use the same exact phrase in both places?
