Dissecting the enigma of Love - 1 : Wavelength

Long since I wrote a post and probably best for the rest of you guys. I heard that. But I am not going to quit. This post is all about the magic/curse (depending on the shore you are) LOVE and the concepts of wavelengths that's more often associated with love. I will blend 'them' and 'we' in the post because we are actually part of the clan.

First let me tell a small story. Two people start loving each other. Simple as that. When that magical feel starts, for the next couple of months, you can more often see the following things happen:
1. Both wear same colour dress often.
2. They often talk the same sentence unknowingly.
3. They know what the other person wants even when they are miles apart.
4. He / She calls just when the other person takes the phone to call.
5. They gift things which the other one thought of buying few days back.
6. When he turns to see her, she will also automatically turn to see him.

All these just not only happens in movies. It happens in real life and that's where the lovers start enjoying the moment. They understand that this moment is worth their whole life and they know that without the other person their life is void. What a magical feeling love is. That's the time we think that our WAVELENGTH will match only with him/her.

CUT. Zoom in after say 6-7 months. The lovers are the same. The environment is the same. But somehow things seem to turn upside down.
1. There seems to be lots of misunderstandings happening.
2. We will not be able to guess what the other person wants and we more often upset them.
3. We do not more often enjoy the company of each other. We feel love is a added pressure.
4. Suddenly we become possessive. We do not feel good when they are talking with the opposite sex.

Then the guys will start saying "Girls are the most tough beings to satisfy on the Earth" and the girls will start saying, "Guys are the most cheapest creatures on Earth, after a couple of months they get bored". Then they begin to say "Love is a crime and not all get the right partner, so end up in jail..:)". The last one was my quote guys and I love it.

Is Love that much alien? Are girls so tough to understand as they are being perceived? Are guys so monkey minded to run from one girl to another in a matter of months? Well... I THINK ALL OF THESE ARE TRUE LIES.

The fundamental difference is 'Attention'. I always believe when you are in a conversation with someone, there are 2 voices to hear. One is voice that is out through the mouth and the other is something that resides in heart. When you can listen deeply and be attentive, you can listen to the inner voice of others and if you can do that, there is no force on earth that can break your Love.

When guys tell they cannot understand what girls think, how come they manage her to convince her to love him at the first place? Its interest, attentiveness. When he knows he has to grab her attention, he gives his 200% and listens to her inner self and satisfies her. But once love happens, lethargy creeps in and then you lose the urge to keep pushing yourself so hard to satisfy her because you know now she is yours. Wrong. The worst way to hurt a human is to make them feel they are no more important in your life. Do that to your own peril..:). This is one place where the WAVELENGTH BREAKS.

And the problem with girls they always feel they deserve the best. They are more often not satisfied by being the second best and when after a point in time, guys do give her and his personal life equal priority, she feels cheated and that's where the WAVELENGTH BREAKS.

Will probably end this post here. If guys and girls can understand this sincerely I am sure their love will be as successful as they thought it would be. And just a few disclaimers.
1. The reason someone loves is not just for the external beauty and if some one does that, its mandatory that they like that thing lifelong or life is gonna be real hell.
2. There are cases when few factors like lust, ego etc gains more importance than love. In that case, be the sufferer or the one giving the suffering, its better to leave the other one. I am a firm believer of the fact that people should walk away of they think it's not going to work out. Patching works will never last that longer in tires and life.
3. And always keep in mind, love is a truly brilliant feeling that has be kept alive constantly like breathing, if you plan to show cause it on a seasonal basis, then god help you.

As usual, would love to hear comments from you guys about it and as usual open to people asking for a ban for my rantings..:).

My 10 years in Application Development

It's been around 10 years since I started programming. May be a bit more, if I have to include my first attempts at C programming in school. But it would be a grave insult to call remembering ten lines of code and just replicating it to put a star on the screen. I also did a course on Visual basic, but it was more gimmicks that Application development. But it was truly in the year 2007 when I started my Master in Computer Applications that I found a new flare for developing applications. 
I was very late to computers in general and even when I joined my Masters, computers were not really accessible to me. But when I joined my Masters where one is actually expected to hone the skills which they already have, but in case it was were I was learning the skills, initially it was very difficult. I was not sure what computers had for me nor I had a natural flair for programming. But the thing about computers that attracted me was the visual medium it gave. Initially it was just a door t…

Changing Timezone in Postgresql, Ubuntu

Timezone and locale are integral concepts that one should be aware of when implementing a System. For example. if you create a database in PostgreSql, it will use the default System settings for the database. Lets say you have a server in UK and your client is US. If the client tries to retrieve the current date or time, it is going to show the UK time and not the US one.
Today I encountered a different issue in our client place where the Ubuntu timezone and PostgreSql timezone were showing a incorrect values. Instead of Indian Standard Time (IST) it was showing Pacific Daylight Time(PDT). These are the steps that I followed to change the timezone to IST in PostgreSql and Ubuntu.
Changing timezone in Ubuntu:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdataYou will be prompted to choose the continent and then the area. Provided screen shots where we configure the location.
Use TAB key to navigate to the OK button and then press Enter.

The changes will get reflected immediately. To check it you can open a n…

Dissecting Openbravo 3.0 UI Architecture

Having been worked on Openbravo 3.0 UI for more than a year now (right from RC1) , Openbravo has leaped ahead of most contemporary ERP's in terms of UX design and usability. And a part of the credit has to go to the community too as they were actively involved in finalizing the UX and also involved enthusiastically in tested out the RC versions and providing their feedback.

In this post, I have tried to draw limelight on the basic UI components that are being used in Openbravo and their corresponding smartclient components. This is just to provide a very high level idea on how the entire architecture is coupled together. I have tried to use a single screen shot of Openbravo interface and tried to map the base components here.

The hierarchy can be visualized in simple terms as follows:

Exhaustive information on these components are provided in the Openbravo Wiki here.

Most of these components are defined and managed from individual files (or code) thereby making it really easy to …
