     A year ago I had gone to Jeetu’s home in Pimpri along with my friends. I had told Jeetu about Ubuntu a lot times previously, so he was curious to see how Ubuntu really works. I had brought Ubuntu CD which we used to install Ubuntu on his Sony Laptop. Unfortunately, since used the Wubi installer which was in its early stages of development, his Vista got corrupted. Obviously he was pissed off with this, I thought he would never again try Ubuntu.

     One year down the line since that incident, there is a total contrast in the way we are using our laptops. Jeetu has installed Ubuntu on his Laptop on his own and since then been using Ubuntu instead of Vista. On the other hand, even though I had installed Ubuntu on my laptop, I hardly used it (one of the reasons being lack of connectivity in NITIE which means I won’t be able to download and install software from net for Ubuntu). In fact, for past one month, I have become a proper Windows user with Vista on my laptop and XP- SP3 on my home desktop.

    Truly ironic if you compare it if you compare it with last year!!!


y no connectivity?????
wireless works good in 8.10 as i heard..Never tried though..

By lack of connectivity, I meant wifi problems in NITIE. Also, the people who administer the net have adbvised students not to download files more than 10 MB. So that means it is difficult for me to install softwares via Synaptic.

Raja Shivchhatrapati Lyrics

इंद्र जिमि जंभ पर… बाडव सुअंभ पर… रावण सदंभ पर… रघुकुलराज है !
पौन बारिबाह पर… संभु रतिनाह पर… ज्यों सहसबाह पर… राम द्विजराज है !
उदरात माउली… रयतेस साउली… गडकोट राउळी… शिवशंकर हा
मुक्तीची मंत्रणा… युक्तीची यंत्रणा… खल दुष्टदुर्जना… प्रलयंकर हा
संतास रक्षितो… शत्रू निखंदतो… भावंडभावना… संस्थापितो
ऐसा युगेयुगे… स्मरणीय सर्वदा… माता-पिता-सखा… शिवभूप तो
दावा दृमदंड पर… चीता मृगझुंड पर… भूषन वितुंड पर… जैसे मृगराज है !
तेज तम‍ अंस पर… कान्ह जिमि कंस पर… त्यों मलिच्छ बंस पर… सेर सिवराज है !
जय भवानी, जय शिवाजी !Thanks to Nik for sending this.In case any of you want to read the whole poem you can visit this link.


Finally gave the last exam which I had targeted in the year 2010. It took me 7 months to give my first NCFM exam. But soon got into study mode for rest of the exams. I guess toughest of them all was "Investment Analysis & Portfolio Management”. The last one – “Derivatives Dealers Module” was also tough because I had lost the momentum in between as I participated in lot of Operations Simulation Games with no touch of Finance during that one and a half month period. Now, I am proud NCMP Level 3!!!


It feels really frustrating sometimes. What is the point of being the so called sincere guy in class, the “nine" pointer guy when your parents are worried about how much time you spend on TV serials and movies in hostel!
