Reality children

I am watching a show in one of the regional channels these days where they are organising a competition of singing for children with title Sarigamapa - little champs . I saw both series of this show . Its good to see kids singing , but the way they are made to , It dont seem to be entertaining . I dont know whether the government will ever come up with a law whether there is a lower limit on children's age before they get introduced to this unreal dramatic reality shows .

Did you notice the little kid on the right in the above picture ? She might be hardly 5 years old . She can not even speak properly . She can not even understand comments given to her song by judges properly . She never sang so beautifully till now that she get a chance to sing in a finale . I agree she used to sing very cutely as she is still a kid but ...... The only reason by which she probably would had got forwarded till grand finale is becase she is a reason for the increase in ratings of this show . People used to see the show as it was good seeing the kid singing very cutely .They even promoted the show 2 or 3 times showing the judges giving her bad comments and the kid getting embarassed as a trailer .So weird .

Itwas atleast fine . Now they brought her to finale and again they made her cry . That is the promo for the finale . They showed the same trailer 100 times a day . In the finale they made her sing for two hours and in the end they sent her home crying . It was soo embarassing to watch that show .When the show ended , I decided never to watch that channel again . Better you also dont .
Justify Full
And dear parents , next time you send your kid to a show , dont think just your kid will get name and fame . Think of their feelings before you send them in . For the channels , its just a commercial event . Send and encourage your kids to participate only when you think they really fit in there easily .

How to remove a value from array in javascript ?

Yesterday I was writing javascript and I came across a problem where I had to remove a value from a array in javascript . As usual I tried Array.remove[index] . But it did not work . So how to remove a element from Javascript array ?

Its quite simple . There are two functions which serves your purpose .

splice :

Usage : If you know index of the element / elements to be removed ,
ArrayName.splice(index,Noofelementstoberemoved) ;

E.g : If you want to remove single element from second position in Array=['one','two','three','four','five'];
use Array.splice(1,1) . The result will be ['one','three','four','five']; .

Remove :
If you dont know the index of a particular element to be removed but you know the value of it ,
You can use remove .

Usage : Array.remove('Valuetoberemoved') ;

E.g . To remove fifth element in the above array , use Array.remove('five') ;

Nachavule review - A typical Ravi babu direction - Produced by Ramoji Film City

One line review : 50 -50 .. Its a ok kind of picture.
Pro : Comedy in first half of the movie .
Con : Extreme psentiment in second half .

Nachavule is a story of two teens who are just done with their matriculation and how they fell in love after that ( obviously with troubles ). Director ravi babu dealt with the feelings of a teen girl extremely well in the first half of the movie . He was almost nearer to reality in this context . But in the case of the guy , he just came with usual telugu movie stunt featuring a fellow who wont do any other thing in the day except roaming behind the girl and going nuts about her . The family of the guy is somewhat comical . A dad who never cares about his wife and who never knew how to express his love to kids , A mom who does everything to her husband thinking he will thank her someday for what shez doing and defending her kids whenever they do a mistake , A little brother who steal things in his home and sell them in shop . The converstations between the dad and the little brother of the hero are very funny . E.g In telugu paina means Top and kindha means Bottom . The father asks the kid to give names of fruits showing a page with figures of a pine apple on top and a apple in bottom . The kid replies , Paina apple (Top apple) and kindha apple (bottom apple ) [:)] . One more is like the father asks him , if you have six sweets and i ask you to give me two , how many will you have ? The kid replies "Six" . The father aks him how ? The kid replies Its because I wont give you my sweets haha .

The first half of the movie is dealt with the guy trying to find some girl friend as he never had one in his life . He eventually tries and suceeds in impressing Anu to become his friend ( who works in a coffee shop to help her diseased father ) . The hero saves Anu 's father life once and Anu promises him that she will return his favour in any way he asks her . The guy asks her to be his girl friend for 15 days and if she feels he is not good enough for her , she can leave . But Anu fell in love with the guy in the 15 days and she ends up kissing the guy which is recorded by the guy in his mobile . After this , the guy is able to find lot of girls and he forgets Anu . With this the the first half ends and the troublesome second half starts . One day heroes little brother steals his phone and sells it in a mobile shop . The mobile shop owner sees the MMS and circulates it all over as a result of which the girls life gets spoiled . Now the girl hates the guy . In the mean the guys mother fell ill and she dies . But she makes her husband and kids realise how to take care of each other after she dies and what a woman expects from a man . The guy realises this and he is back on business . Now the movie is about what troubles he will cross to get the girl .

Believe me , Second half is extremely psentimental and if the movie would had been a little bit longer , I would had walked out . But the first half is worth watching . Technically the movie is very good like other Ravi babu movies who display some effect of hollywood on his movies photography .

How to run windows applications in Linux ?

Linux is all time favourite OS for Open source lovers . The only problem people ever have with Linux is applications . They don't have all their favourite windows applications made for Linux . Although Linux has got alternatives for Windows applications , not all have been covered . You can find Open source alternatives for windows applications here . Just go to osalt and enter the name of windows application for which you want to find open source alternative and Osalt will display you the list . Don't want to settle yourself with alternatives ? How to run your favourite windows application in Linux ?

There is a application called WINE ( Wine Is Not an ( windows ) Emulator ) which is a freeware that aims at allowing us to run windows applications in POSIX or Unix like Operating systems .WINE implements the Windows API entirely in user-space, rather than as a kernel module at the time of writing. Services normally provided by the kernel in Windows are provided by a daemon known as wineserver. Wineserver implements basic Windows functionality, as well as providing extra functions such as X Window integration and translation of signals into native Windows exceptions. It just acts as a compatibility layer for running windows applications .

Once you install WINE , follow the steps below .
  • Check whether WINE is installed or not by typing the command : locate wine . It should display a list of WINE related files .
  • Make sure you have mounted the windows drive .
  • Edit the file /etc/wine.conf by changing the line under ' Drive C ' to Path=/mnt/win .
  • Save the edited wine.conf file and copy the file user.dat to your Windows directory c:/windows/profiles/ .
  • Now type: cd "/mnt/win/Program Files/Accessories" then type: wine ./Notepad.exe .
  • This will run Notepad on your Linux OS. You can load other programs also by giving suitable directory paths .
  • If you are planning to run a game or other program that uses your midi , then Linux midi-sequencer needs to be installed .
Note that for running all kinds of programs you need to load sound and graphics properly related to that program which I can not explain briefly in this post .

    Why not a girl ?

    A day back I was returning from my morning walk and I heard a conversation between two women ( Probably educated illiterates ) . The conversation is as follows .

    First one : " You know Mrs X had a girl " .
    Second one : "Poor X why didn't she had a abortion "
    First One : " I heard doctors never let you know whether you are going to
    have a boy or girl .Otherwise who wants to have a girl "
    Second one : "Yeah , it will just act as burden to their family and nothing
    else "

    These kind of conversations still can be heard in our society even in a part of educated families which is absolutely pathetic . I don't understand why girls are still considered a burden to the families of these people . People should always understand that giving birth to a girl is a contribution to the society where Male : Female ratio is increasing . If the ratio continues to increase further , a day will surely come when men start fighting for girls . Girls are soft and gentle , but they can survive easily in the present world of opportunities . There are enough jobs for women . People need to understand every job is not done by a person who is tough . There are some jobs which can be handled better by females and they are doing it. I have seen ladies who contribute well to their families and who have been successful . I know girls who even went big in their life and those who are on the way to go bigger . They are never a burden to us instead they are assets which need to be just managed .
    I know no illiterate is going to read my blog , but still may be someone among you educate someone among them . Sometimes its good to write about some noble cause .
    Don't think of killing girls , Remember you are born to a woman .

    If I would had been Mr Tata

    Tata , This word has been associated with India since India started progress . Progress came to India with these legendary people . Tata 's are patriots of the nation . They are people who has done everything , someone can do for a nation even at the cost of themselves . There is a story that when Tata 's came to India , they promised our king that If India is milk , we will add sugar . They always justified this word they gave us .

    Apart from being among the biggest conglomerates in India , Tata 's are treated with much more respect all over the world .I always say People can be great businessmen but not great people . Tata 's are great people . Take Ambani 's they are great businessmen not great people . If something happens to TATA 's , nation feels as if it happened to them . But others case , its just a news for the media . Tata 's always bleeded for the nation . Still they won't say a word or cry on the foul system we have in our country .

    Tata 's have lost 10 's of projects before they start like Singur and they always keep losing money . Still they always plan to do good to our nation . Like other IT engineers , I criticise my company always but internally I am always proud to be a Tata employee . We have a respect in the global societies which many other company employees never hold . We as TATA employees are people who always keep on contributing to the society . Tata companies always incorporate certain level of social responsiblity and ethics in their employees . Thats why staff of Taj lost their lives for the guests . Tata 's respect their employees with great value .For the things that happen to Tata ' s I always feel what I would had done if I am Tata ?
    For people like us , money matters . In business we
    will do everything possible to regain our lost rupee . I bet most of the
    highly grown businessmen have done some wrong thing in their life to reach the
    position they are in today . Its very tough to grow being a good person
    always . You have to act tough and take decisions that do bad to someone
    . If I would had been from a conglomerate such a Tata , I would had forced
    government to compensate my losses in the form of some discounts or giving some
    additional benefits to me always . I would had never retained people for a
    moment when my company is in losses . I would had always tried to create
    monopoly as I am the first businessman in the nation and I would
    not had let others grow in my areas . If I would had suffered as much
    as Tata , I would had lost interest in contributing to the nation and I would
    had became agressive in getting money somehow .
    Thats why I am not a TATA . Thats why they are great people . We as a nation respect you legends . Thanks for contributing to our nation .

    What you guys feel about Tata 's ? Feel free to throw your comments .a
