Happy Birthday

Completed 27 years on 27th April 2013. Took a day off from the college. Vimal Pambhar was here for his final dissertation presentation at Ganpat University. I and Kiran Patel went to Mahudi (Jain Temple) on his new Activa and Anand Sutariya and Vimal Pambhar came directly from Mahesana. Our plan was to go to Tirupati Nature Park, Visnagar after taking darshan at Mahudi, but due to the summer heat we canceled the plan and returned back towards Gandhinagar for a visit to Amarnathdham, near Swapna Srushti Water Park on Mahudi-Gandhinagar Highway.

While returning back from Mahudi, a man overtook from the wrong side in his car to which Vimal showed his hand. Later the man came near us and took out a wooden rod from his car and beat Vimal on his hand. He thought that Vimal abused him with words while he was driving his car on the wrong side. Meanwhile, Anandbhai and Kiran too came. Seeing them, he went away driving his car.

After visiting Amarnathdham, we came home and rested for a few hours. In the evening we went to Akshardham to see the water show. On reaching home, Vimal and Mahesh had planned to celebrate my birthday with cake. So we had the cake cutting and enjoyed it. For dinner, I gave party to Vimal, Mahesh, Tushar Trambadiya, Kiran and Anandbhai.

Next day in the morning, we watched the new movie Aashiqui 2, at Cinemax, Sector 11. Later, after lunch we visited the Akshardham museum. Then, Anandbhai left for Mahesana and after dinner, Vimal too left for Rajkot.
In short, the birthday was well spent and we all enjoyed a lot. Thanks to Vimal, Anandbhai, Mahesh and Kiran.

Disconnect to Connect

For the past couple of days I have been reading on Productivity Tips. Have been scouring various blogs on the same.

One thing that has caught my fancy is Digital Detox. To stay away from all kinds of Electronic Connecting Devices, especially Smart Phone.

I am constantly connected to the Internet via my iPhone. Even while working on stuff that doesn't require me to be connected to the Internet, I keep my WiFi on. And this in turn compels me to check my email or browse unnecessary stuff on the Internet.

This disrupts my thinking process or my work.

Although I love being connected to my friends and family members over Whatsapp and other social networks, I don't want it to be a habit where I check my phone even if there are no new notifications.

Tip: Stay Focused with this little Google Chrome Extension

So here's my plan to Disconnect and be more Productive:
Use Whatsapp sparingly. No forwarding of that joke that you found funny or no unnecessary chit-chat.Put your email in Fet…

34 things I learned from The Last Lecture - Randy Pausch

Assume that you're on the verge of dying. You've probably a few months to live. You're suffering from some notorious form of cancer wherein you've very less hope of surviving.
And then you think that you've very less time for all the things you wanted to do, for all the things you wanted to say to your loved ones, to your children and to the world.
How would you want your children to remember you? Of what you thought about them? Your feelings for them?
A few days ago I read the book - The last lecture by Randy Pausch. Randy was a professor at Carnegie Melon University and the book and the lecture is about achieving your childhood dreams. But more than that, I found the book as a good resource on parenting.
Here are a few points that I found worth sharing:
1. If I were a painter, I would have painted for them. If I were a musician, I would have composed music. But I am a lecturer. So I lectured.
2. Engineering isn’t about perfect solutions; it’s about doing the …

Online Courses

I love the idea of sharing knowledge. Off lately, I have seen much action in the MOOCs (Massive Open Online Course). With the proliferation of the Internet amongst the masses, this knowledge sharing helps many students to get access to one of the finest courses and teachers from best universities in the world. Be it Harvard, Michigan, Stanford or our very own IITs - all these universities have started sharing their courses in an online format over the Internet.


The best thing about these online courses is that the student gets an open forum to discuss the things that they have learned in the courses. Also with the use of various tools, students can submit their assignments online and the teacher can grade the students.

Some of the websites that provide great learning resources are :
