Chak de India

Saturday went to swargate for work and on the way , shahrukh's poster with hockey stick in hand was sufficient
to made me curious. and it was poster of movie "Chak de India", is the story of a coach's fight to make his hockey team, Team India, the best in the world. It is a film about self-belief, perseverance, determination and the human spirit to fight and win.

This movie will be releasing sometime next week or so. I am very excited to see this movie as first it based on Hockey teams struggle and triumphs, which should definitely will remind me our own struggles at Inter-IITs and BHAs.
I can write loads on it but will write one more blog after movie release.

I think this is the Best time the movie is releasing with Real India's rocking sport scene this month.
With Saniya mirza into finals of stanford open and won the doubles title.

Team India dominating at second Test at tent bridge.

Even Indian Football team is in news with winning 2 games out of 3 in portugal.

what more we can say other than

Chak de, India.

This weekend was pretty active, went for a small trek ,kor(a)igad on saturday. Trek was quite disappointment as rain was missing from the scene. still enjoyed long walkin and came back with
my face red because of exposure to sunlight. I wondered because 2-3 years of job spent in AC rooms
of corporate office changed me so that i can no more expose myself to my favourite SUN.
anyways on sunday went to satara with my car. Pune-Satara NH4 is so nice that i can drive constantly between 80-100kms which results in taking only less than two hrs to to reach my place.

so why the title of blog is relativity?
actually incidence is like this. while coming back from satara on monday morning i drove the car with ardn speed of 100 km per hr. So when I entered city via balewadi phata, I was in no mood to decrease my speed forgetting completely that roads in pune are not like Highways. and after some time a wagon R was ahead of me, a old guy was driving. I was pretty frustrated with this guy because he was not allowing me to overtook him as roads were narrow. so left no option to follow him. I was pretty frustrated with driving wiht this speed after driving at double speed just fifteen minutes ago.
after some time, I noticed speedometer , it was showing pretty 50 km per hr speed and I said not bad. and I wondered when daily I drives from office to home or vice versa , I never speeded above 40kmph. and I do comfortable with that speed. see now how impatient I have bacome with driving ?
and then realizing this I smiled and drove back to home happily.. as most of the thing do have happy endings like bollywood cinema:).

A Foolish Consistency is the Hobgoblin of Little Minds

don't get be scared by title of this blog. actually i got this from python documentation about program styles.

Two good reasons to break a particular rule:
(1) When applying the rule would make the code less readable, even for someone who is used to reading code that follows the rules.

(2) To be consistent with surrounding code that also breaks it (maybe for historic reasons) -- although this is also an opportunity to clean up someone else's mess (in true XP style).

excerpts from Foundation series 2 by asimov..great work..

first speaker advising the student who he thinks will follow him to become first speaker."

No - now you must take this phlegmatically. You had hoped you would qualify. you had feared you would not. Actually, both hope and fear are weaknesses. You knew you would qualify and you hesitate to admit the fact because such knowledge might stamp you as cocksure and therefore unfit. Nonsense! The most hopelessly stupid man is he who is not aware that he is wise. It is part of your qualification that you knew you would qualify.
