  1. Hello Pranav,

    Good wishes for the year 2010! :)

    I’ve recently updated Blogvani.com again. Now we’re going to introduce support for the major Indian languages one by one.

    I am going to launch an English blogging site like Blogvani.com soon!

    I’ve also recently launched http://codebix.com, a blog aggregator for programmers.

    Do send me your feedback when you get time.

    Cheers!
    Cyril

  3. Hi,
    you see the other day I was chatting with some desis who have just finished their MS and are out of jobs.
    It seems some of these guys have taken pretty serious financial risks to live the great American dream.
    Now given the state of the US economy, the dream is turning into a nightmare and it’s a huge problem.
    I have a simple idea – there is a lot of stuff to be fixed around the world. And a lot of it can happen through the web.
    We have a whole lot of desis who have settled down to a good life and some are even making good money, despite the recession.
    If these guys, desis, now rich as US citizens, dont help these desperate desi MS passouts, who else will?
    You could start from personal websites – yeah I know they dont need a website when they have LinkedIn, Facebook and Orkut.
    I know they don’t need a developer/designer to install a CMS on a shared host. I know that they write code themselves.
    But younger desis who have staked their parents’ earnings are in bad shape.
    Let us say that there are about 10,000 established desis. If each of them asks for a website or a program or a portal to be made by unemployed desi MS for about $2k – $5k, you’re probably saving a career by giving the young desi a chance at extending his stay there.
    Or say the rich desis want to start a huge project here in India, which needs web integration. Or say some rich desis land a big deal or two in Europe or Latin America. They hire some of these MS-but-unemployed desis at minimum pay.
    That’s symbiosis and that’s a plae to actually help out the Indian community directly.
    You could start a kind-hearted VC fund called desipool (which many might find rhyming with something :-D ) where you save the asses of young MS grads.

    All this would not happen if American corporatocracy would actually allow some development to happen in America – like magnetic rails, clean energy, smart grids, localised but interconnected public transport systems, nuclear energy, etc.
    Or if they stopped patent litigation from hindering really fast advances like in China.

    If rich desis are not allowed to fix America, at least they should help younger desi MS grads to ensure that the huge financial risks they took do not precipitate into a complete waste of their parents’ earnings.
    And to think that all you have to do to start with is to ask freshers to make websites for you instead of signing up on Facebook and ruining your online privacy for good.
    Might sound Luddite, but then Facebook is not really your friend, is it?

  4. Great article with good stuff…
    keep your good work going..

  5. Hello,

    I have been reading your blogs since long time, But what happened this time, There is no post since a long time.

  6. Having your own wedding website is a good idea. In the beginning owing a wedding website was something new. But now it is a necessary feature to be considered in ones wedding. As the proverb goes �Necessity is the mother of all invention� this website is created to fulfill your necessity.
    Now a day�s couples usually invite their friends and their so called hi-tech relatives by sending their scanned wedding invitation through e-mails. The number of people to whom you want to send the wedding invitation will go up in future as everyone is becoming internet savvy.
    Instead of sending your scanned invitation it would be great if you create your own wedding website and invite your friends and relatives. It will be more useful if the website not only helps you to invite but it also helps you to share information about the couple, in depth details about the various wedding ceremony and so on.

You are looking to clean your credit reports from harmful details flaws that screw up your credit score.
