What If Android Was Developed in Gujarat ?

One of the most popular operating system in cell phones these days is Android, which is basically a Linux-based operating system developed by Google in conjunction with the Open Handset Alliance.

Android 1.0, the first commercial version of Android was released way back in 2008 and since then it has seen a number of updates. However, after April 2009, Android versions have been codenamed alphabetically with the names of dessert items (or sweet food items). The first codenamed version of Android was Cupcake, followed by Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honey Comb, Icecream Sandwich and Jelly Bean.

If Android was developed in India, then the names of these Android versions would be like :

Cupcake                     Chikki

Donut                         Doodh paak

Eclair                          Elaaichi

Froyo                         Faafda

Gingerbread               Gulaab Jamun

Honey Comb              Halvo

Icecream Sandwich    Ice Gola

Jelly Bean                  Jalebi

Kit-Kat                       Khakhra

Lollipop                     Laddu

Marshmallow             Mohanthaal

Update: Gujarati names for Kit0Kat, Lollipop and Marshmallow are given by Anand Sutariya.

We Have Lost Touch With Humanity

I was reading Robin Sharma's - "Who Will Cry When You Die?" . Love reading the book because I can start reading from any page. And each small lesson of these little book provides food for thought. I read this book whenever I'm short of time, but want to read. It is great. A small excerpt from the very first lesson of the book: We can fire a missile across the world with pinpoint accuracy, but we have trouble keeping a date with our children to go to the library. We have e-mail, fax machines and digital phones so that we can stay connected and yet we live in a time where human beings have never been less connected. We have lost touch with our humanity. We have lost touch with our purpose. We have lost sight of the things that matter the most. Isn't it worth pondering? We're busy checking our phones and emails every 5 minutes but we forget to check our purpose, our goals and our family members. We continuously try to refresh our news feed on Facebook

However, it's a different story that I'm running less and walking more. But the important thing is, the needle is moving. Apart from running, have also started doing a few stretching and upper-body exercises . My initial goal is to complete 5 km run. Became member of Central Library, Gandhinagar and read 2-3 books namely, 1. The Palace of Illusions 2. Curfewed Night and currently reading Akoopar (Gujarati).
