People Come Into Your Life For A Reason…

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person. When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away Some times they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on. Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it, it is real. But only for a season. LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons, things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

Thank you for being a part of my life, whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime.

Provoked - A Must Watch Movie

One more weekend has passed without making any impact on my life…Last Sunday, it was Vishu…First time in life, Vishu passed without any celebration…Reason…I am in this Garden City…miles away from my home town…I was very much disappointed about this Vishu I have spent here in Bangalore…But yesterday, I happened to see the holywood movie Provoked by Jagmohan Mundhra. This movie is adapted from the autobiography of Kiranjith Ahluwalia, “Circle of Light“. ‘Provoked’ tells us a true story of a woman who suffered for years at the hands of her abusive husband. The movie doesn’t give a detailed account of the psyche or conditioning of its victim and offender, but gives a clear insight of a women’s incredible tale of abuse. Instead of going into the minds of its characters, the movie skims the story’s surface only.
Role of Kiranjit has been played by Aishwarya Rai. Kiranjit, a submissive girl from Punjab came to England after she gets married to Deepak. The vile man beats, cheats, mistreats and abuses his wife physically, sexually and verbally. The only ray of happiness in her life is her two kids. One day, Kiranjit decides to take no more abuse from Deepak and puts a gasoline soaked rug on him and sets him on fire. The trial fails to establish a prolonged background of domestic violence and the jury declares her guilty. She is sentenced to life imprisonment in 1989. In the prison she finds a friend in a white inmate named Veronica Scott, who has booked for stabbing her husband. Meanwhile, a group of Asian social workers called Southall Black Sisters, headed by Radha (played by Nandita Das) take Kiranjit’s cause and begin to garner support for her case to be retried. These women prove to be a driving force in Kiranjit’s life. While she brushes up her English speaking skills, Radha and her team create an awareness of Kiranjit’s case by posting banners and flyers asking for support. Veronica uses her contacts to help Kiranjit file an appeal. What follows is a historical verdict in British judiciary in 1992. Kiranjit is acquitted and reunited with her kids.

Provoked is an important story which definitely needs to be told. The treatment is realistic and the acting is mostly commendable, especially Aishwarya’s. She infuses life into the movie with her very convincing portrayal of Kiranjit. Ash’s eyes are highly expressive in many scenes and her dialogue delivery in Punjabi is absolutely credible. Nandita Das is also effective in her small part. Miranda Richardson is impressive as Veronica Scott. Also A R Rahman’s soulful music and Madhu Ambat’s camera work is also comendable. Story ends with the words from Kiranjith saying to each and every mothers to advise their sons to treat the women better. Its clearlly giving a message that ‘Never do what I did in life. But at the same time never suffer in a bad marriage. If you are unhappy in a marriage, get out of it.’ ‘Provoked’ is a film made with good intentions, which leaves the hard-hitting impact on viewers, clearly justifying its incredibly important subject. Kiranjit’s story will def compels us to think about the ugly issue prevalent in both modern and traditional societies. I felt the film a touching one. I never knew, when my eyes were filled with tears and why that happened too, whether those are tears of happiness or sadness… Anyway the movie left a very good impression on me…

Asynchronous JavaScript And XML (AJAX)

How the normal web application model works? Most user actions in the interface trigger an HTTP request to the web server. The server does the data processing, communicating with DB and then returns an HTML page to the client. This approach makes a lot of technical sense, but it doesn’t great for good user experience. While the server is processing the data, what’s the user doing? Def h/she will be waiting. And at each step in a task, the user has to wait more n more. An Ajax application eliminates thus user waiting on the Web by introducing an Ajax engine in between the user and the server. Ajax engine is responsible for both rendering the user interface and communicating with the server on user’s behalf. The Ajax engine allows the user’s interaction with the application to happen asynchronously. So the user is never staring at a blank browser window and an hourglass icon, waiting around for the server to do the processing.

Asynchronous JavaScript And XML (AJAX) is not a technology in itself, but is a term that describes a new approach to use a number of existing technologies together, say: HTML or XHTML, CSS, JavaScript, DOM, XML, XSLT, and the XMLHttpRequest object. When these technologies are combined in the AJAX model, web applications are able to make quick, incremental updates to the user interface without reloading the entire browser page. This makes the application faster and more responsive to user actions. Ajax is a technology platform as well as an architectural style. it is the use of the nonstandard XMLHttpRequest object to communicate with server-side scripts. It can send as well as receive information in a variety of formats, including XML, HTML, and even text files. XMLHttpRequest is only part of the Ajax equation. XMLHttpRequest is the technical component that makes the asynchronous server communication possible. Ajax’s most interesting characteristic is its “asynchronous” nature, which means it can do all of these without having user knowledge. This allows you to update portions of a page based upon user events, without refreshing the entire pages.

Many of the products Google has introduced over the last year — Orkut, Gmail, Google Groups, Google Suggest, and Google Maps — are Ajax applications. Some others are Flickr and Amazon’s They prove that Ajax is not only technically sound but practical in real world applications as well. Ajax application can be a simple, single function to Complex, sophisticated functions depends upon the requirement. Ajax is an important development for Web applications, and its importance is only going to grow. Ajax’s scope of usage is yet to be revealed…
