Hyderabad Diary

The thought of Hyderabad gave me back memories of the city. I was sitting in my office bus in Pune and the  bus was on its regular schedule to reach the office like any regular day it would. I saw a restaurant named, “Ancient Hyderabad”.  This made me nostalgic and I remember my one night-out with Rohit, a friend of mine.

We saw the new released Bollywood movie – Stree. After the movie show, I asked him if we can go to Charminar or not.

He was excited and gave a green signal. We drove for 30 minutes without GPS.(Rohit was my colleague from last project. Rohit is being regular engineer who completed his studies from this very city itself perfectly knew all the roads of Hyderabad). We parked the Suzuki Gixxer of Rohits’ and slowly walked toward Charminar.

Charminar

It was around 1 am and there were few Dosa and street food vendors. Some fruit sellers and adventure seeking humans who were wandering around The Charminar. They were clicking selfies and looking for the best angle and zero disturbance corner. So we also followed the same pattern and started walking around the structure. Two pillars of Charminar were getting renovated. The structure seems old and felt like it has some more years to stay. Government making efforts to keep it alive by renovation. after some 10 -15 odd minutes I asked Rohit to click my photos.

selfies

It was followed by his turn.At around 2 am  both of us were hungry and decided to try the street food available. We ordered dosa and were waiting patiently for our orders. Suddenly we heard some whistle and strong voices from behind. As any regular Indian, these were cops who were asking for these vendors to close the stalls. The juice vendors who were at the starting of ques closed the shutter and went inside. The person who was making our dosa delivered it and declared that it was the last order. We were asked by the vendors to stand in a corner where the cops could not spot us clearly. After 10 minutes everything went back to the old stage. The shops and vendors came back. I was savoring  my dosa I saw Mecca Masjid. I was excited to see such a big holy shrine. Being liberal, I wanted to go inside. After having our Dosa we got to know that the entry was closed at that time.

Masjid

By this time I was over with my excitement of being a nightcrawler and wanted to sleep. We kicked the bike and started our journey back. I was sitting on the back seat of the bike and observing the buildings around the Charminar. All the buiding were dated back to 1900 and the design seems very old. I was amused to  find people living inside. They were actually homes to families. I mean aren’t these people scared if this building would ever collapse. With all these thoughts I left the Charminar and riding for 1 hour at speed of 98kmph on those wide, empty and well built roads of hyderabad, we reached Rohit’s pg. I was tired enough to sleep at 4 am and wake up late at morning.

I am happy and feel good about the excited journeys and incidents in Hyderabad.

Tableau 10.3

Consider a software where you make prediction based on the previous records. Isn’t it sounds familiar? We as humans have always done this, to predict the future and make sure that the next coming events are successful more than the previous one. Now, I am telling you that it is actually present. A software which can help you to make prediction. Whether you want to forecast the sales, want to see how the products sale will impact business, where the sales are lagging, which part of country requires focus and what not. This software is known as Tableau.

The simple task which I told you has capability far more than what I stated above. I used Desktop Tableau 10.3, one of its four product. The company provides you 15 days trail for free. This trail period is than sufficient to make you familiar with the capability of software and make you stand in a position where you can think of possibilities how to utilize it. If you are layman with zero software knowledge also it has great capability to know the potential this software hold.
In case you are an engineer you can show your company a new path to help in visualization of the data. I mean literally, do you want to see complex numbers where your mind take at least a minute to recognize the value of number (Is it lakh/crore or hundred) then think it has reduced as compared to previous data or increased and then see where what is happening. Tableau helps you to do all this stuff with simple click, drag and drop and in case you require complex outcome you can use data library to put code and get it instantly

.

It has capability to present your data in various formats and graphs. It allows the viewer to modify data if required.
Desktop tableau doesn’t only helps you to sort data, it has good amount of employment power. Many companies want people work and help them. Tableau 10. 3 along with knowledge of arranging and sorting the parent data using Python, Sql, RDBMS, etc will help you fetch an easy job of at least 4 lakh per annum. The reason why these companies wants you to have extra knowledge is that, the corporate sector works in harmony with various clients and service providers. Sometimes data is generated every minute. Thus you need to understand how to handle the parent file.
This is a topic which comes under the topic of Big Data and analysis. You can directly learn some concepts and understand how to work upon it. This profession can help you to land into foreign countries also. Presently, many newspaper and companies are stilling this software to make the reports attractive. Some of the various tables of tableau :-

After using it for 30 days let me tell you this is very creative, knowledgeable and technical thing you would always love to do. In case you want help you can always check udemy which hold a very good video lectures to learn from.

CATIA- A Design tool

When a Mechie starts designing 3D item the very first thing he wants is a good software after the completion concept and analysis. Autocadd was the very first software which almost every engineer is familiar with. In almost any Indian Engg. the university you will come across this software in  1st or 2nd semester. Auto cad is a very basic software which is basically used for drafting. In layman language, this is a software used to create 2D drawing sheet. This was helpful until humans were satisfied with the drawing of an object on paper.

Later people started demanding for visuals for what these designers were making on sheet. If you google what is Catia history then:-

CATIA started as an in-house development in 1977 by French aircraft manufacturer AVIONS MARCEL DASSAULT, at that time customer of the CADAM software to develop Dassault’s Mirage fighter jet. It was later adopted by the aerospace, automotive, shipbuilding, and other industries.

Initially named CATI (conception assistée tridimensionnelle interactive – French for interactive aided three-dimensional design ), it was renamed CATIA in 1981 when Dassault created a subsidiary to develop and sell the software and signed a non-exclusive distribution agreement with IBM.

In 1984, the Boeing Company chose CATIA V2 as its main 3D CAD tool, becoming its largest customer.

Basically, CATIA is an acronym for computer-aided three-dimensional interactive application. The present version of this software is (Wikipedia):-

Release history[edit]

Catia v6 R___ _/_/2011
Catia v5-6 R2012 __/2/2012
Catia v6 R20 _20/5/2013

Uses:-

It can be used for many basic and advanced applications:- Aerospace, Automotive, shipbuilding, industrial equipment, architecture, consumer packaged goods and retail and many more.

For your personal Mood, you can make any 3D part and also use the machining module to see how to manufacture it. You can use youtube and see how to work on it.

You just require a medium built computer and get it installed. If your computer holds a graphics card it will make your work easier. It is not user-friendly but requires a person to think to work and what options will help you.

New Software:-

As the demands grew in the industry, people wanted very direct and efficient software as per their need. this lead to the creation of new software like:- Solidworks, Fusion, creo, Unigraphics etc. While Catia is efficient but has many indirect commands which take time and has complications. Nowadays popularity and demand have reduced but if a person is aware of Catia he can adjust on any CAD software.

Being a designer myself, I can tell you that your concept matters irrespective of software. In case, a beginner comes to me I will grill him with CATIA training before anything to become a design engineer.

Alas Pune!!!

On Monday, 15th April come to Hinjewadi office, Pune. Exactly 3 days I had to go and make the journey.I was always happy to say, I am going to Pune from Hyderabad. I would inform friends, aquintince and plans for meet up and journey.Not this time a time when it was final good bye to Hyderabad and shifting to Pune. Apart from family members, I didn’t told anyone, anything. I was really shocked and surprised myself.I remember I was on bench in Tech mahindra company with no work to do, no office to go, no training to attend but relax in my room on the 3rd Floor in Sanjana lake view ,flat no. 303. I was thinking about what will happen next and what I should do?I was planning something and other day it would come down to the ashes. I kept my self motivating and trying to be normal when I was idle. Suddenly a message pops out in my whats app messenger” You can leave this office and today was your last day. All the best for your future. “I was half puzzled but more sorrowful the way I was told to go. I worked with a team of 25 members and when I asked my manager for a formal farewell party in reply to his above message there was nothing. I always thought that my manager will never take the things personal but today the assumption was shattered. Next day, I went to the office with no permission and met everyone. Informed them about my departure, and to my amaze my team mates for whom I always thought of being a part had no consideration as to bid adieu.I lived with my Flat mates for more than 2 years. I did what they expected, offered them lunch but none had guts to bring cake or atleast gift me the way we did for our last friend who left the flat. I offered dinner to my other friends which comprised of gymnasium and college final year people.I hardly got any ticket via train, booked my luggage in duplicate agency for Agarwal packers and movers (hardly did I knew what I was doing). On Sunday, 3 final year BE friends came and spent some time with me talking and Discussing about future. Then I went by cab to reach Railway station abd on the way I got myself Paradise biryani packed for last time.I boarded my shatabdi express, SECUNDRABAD to Pune, to my surprise I was greeted by my friend cum brother Ansuman and Suresh. We spent emotional time and were occupied with energy. At the exact time train departed and reached at exact time to Pune railway station. I booked cab which charged me 3x the normal cost and I reached home.With all this way of leaving the Hyderabad, Telangana, I had no Will to be cheerful about coming to Pune and tell everyone that I have shifted to my Home. Now whenever I meet old friend and aquintince, its a good surprise for them and even I enjoy the new feeling.This way, my excitement, happiness and joy was ruined by every possible way.

Changes in life:-

katie-moum-446408-unsplashWhile we as humans keep evaluating and also question the experienced ones to predict the result of the journey, we tend to forget that everyone wears a different shoe and have different stride. Everyone has different speed and stamina. There are always risk in whatever we choose and this danger makes our journey special. We always want no problems, happiness, smiles and believe that the present journey will make help to resolve the problems we have. When we want to turn away our face from the present problems we start to bet on the new journeys.

The roads lead to a new direction and if the destination is missing I swear the directions will provide no future. I have been making my journey for the past 25 years and guess what every time its always a fascination to start new.

The paths are always deceiving and desire for a better future make us run. This is a misleading thought which skips the reality that the person making the journey is the same and have the same memories where ever he goes.

A killer society

Ever wondered what if you die…
Die in front of your parents and they are helpless. Helpless to a point where they can’t figure out whom to blame, what to do. Your death body in front of their eyes. Eyes popped out of sockets, brain lying outside, ribs broken, blood all over. Body pressed and face unrecognizable. Seems quite scary and gloomy right?

It was a normal day after office. I was returning to my room after spending my time quota required in my office. I was passing by the speed breaker( me cursing why the hell they build these things.. My Apache 160 loves the high-speed drive and I don’t like speed breakers ).
Suddenly I saw a dog barking. I started thinking .. ” Oh!! Hell with you guys. Do some good stuff and stop barking at every other vehicle. Stop chasing every car “. But I saw another dog standing to Her, even he was barking at passing vehicles. Then I thought. ” Wait! This is unusual”. I suddenly started looking for the clue, what it is?
I saw the third dog, Even this dog was barking in the same direction. Now my suspicion gained confidence.
It did not take more than a minute, I realised that there was something lying in front of these dogs. I squinted my eyes to see what is it with curiosity. To my shock, there was blood. There was something looking like internal organs. Though I don’t eat meat and non-vegetable food I can easily figure out what it means to see an animal’s body.
I mean, I understood what was going on.
My heart cracked. A small tear flowed out of my eyes. I pulled the breaks. Stopped in the left side of the road.

So the situation was this, a mother had lost her son. A father was so helpless that he barked fiercely but with despair. The third dog, may not be the family but he was helping the couple. He understood the gloomy situation.
Three of them barking, as if like trying to ask, ” Who killed my son? Is it you on Bike, or is it you in the big car.” Meanwhile, they were also trying hard to get closer to the speeding vehicles. Although it was useless. The passing vehicles were ignorant of the whole death ceremony.
I felt bad for them. Those parents who don’t know what to expect, what they should do. I started thinking about myself. I was sad and helpless too.
Just being sad for a while, I started my vehicle and headed towards my room. The pain was enough to make me go to sleep without food.

Every human being has a right to live. Your richness should not cost some animal of their life. Your enjoyment of high speed does not mean a son has to die in front of the whole family. You have a vehicle, be responsible, if not for yourself have it for those who can’t speak YOUR BLOODY language, because you understand only your language. The emotions of others, the pain of some animals is nothing to you.

Just imagine, imagine… If your parents were there. Helpless, sad, crying, what it feels like. I believe none of us can answer this question.

Peace

Love

No one chooses that from this day onwards I will love. It slips into our lives when we expects it the least. Let’s go back to our childhood. Remember the first love of your life? The first time you saw her or him. The first time you wanted someone to be happy. That moment when you went close to them. The butterflies in the stomach when she smiled the first time in front of you. Jealous when she held someone else’s hand. Voice of your own heart cracking when she was scolded by someone and you couldn’t do anything. Everything was selfless and enjoyable.

Now come back to today’s time. Time of 21st when the love is defined by the number of messages she sends. How fast she reply to your messages. Whether she sleeps in your bed or not. Whether he spends all his salary on you and your deed. If he is capable of calling you every day or not. If you are above than his mother or sister. Whether he listens to your orders or not.

Love has no definition. It is just a feeling that you are happy to see their smiles. If you are accepted by the other soul for being with you. If you are ready to be guided and teach in this walk of life. Love has many dimensions and ways. It does not need to be public and loud. We need to understand that there is no guarantee that this person will always with you. They will eat with others and will speak to others. Love is not jealous. It is always kind and sharing is the nature. You trust your partner and promise to be with them when it is the end of day or end of life. In case if you find that the person you loved has betrayed you and used you, then it is the time that you must realize your value. We should forgive ourselves and let them go this is hardest part.. after all once upon a time we have loved them and now if they are happy in leaving us, then we should help them.

Love is the beautiful and serene feeling. With expectations and restrictions, we maligns it. After all, this is the only thing which survives and keeps the life moving.

Litmus Test…

“When the first block of dominos starts falling, it destroys the every piece of structure.”

I realized this recently while I was working continously for 13 or 14 hours a day. I was focused on completing my work. Mind well your work is not just about sitting but making the work HAPPEN. If it keeps you hungry for past 4 hours, or keeping you on the wait to go for toilet then don’t wonder it is very normal situation. In my case I was having a running stomach, thirst was something which I was fighting along with the situation of completion of work without error.Food wasn’t a big deal as I had boiled grains and brought my tiffin  to keep myself energized,with zero calorie. All my past activities, bad habits and wasted time came to me and punched me with question

‘Did you really enjoyed without paying?”

Anyhow, situations make you learn new posssibilities and makes you aware of your ignorance. They test your boundaries and make you confident.The situation as it gets tough make you realize what is your breaking point and stamina. As it is said by Mohmmad Ali, “The world will make you fall. You will fall straight square on your face. It will make you bend on your feet and get the best out of you. The question is, “How many times you keep getting up after falling.”

While I decided to give up, I prayed to Lord and decided to call my best buddy and asked him what to do. Luckily he was available when I needed him most after so many years. (I believe that is what we call friendship).He encouraged me and made me think the way my other part of brain was asking me to behave rather than giving up.

Anyways , I realized something while I was relaxing “Don’t Give Up”. Keep walking. Make your best shot you can. If you are running, Go that extra mile which you thought you can’t. Go breathless. Put your full speed.See the aim. If you are swimming in evening, take a dive, reach the lowest depth use your shoulders , your arms and mind, see those beautiful lights that are making pool sparkle. It feels out of this realm.  If you are hitting gym, Make those last 5 reps. Take that extra weight you always aspired to try. Extend the number of repetition of the exercise. Put every energy which is there in your body atoms.I am telling because once you do it, next moment you will reach a new level, the happiness will make you see that you are doing something beyond you. Everything is possible. Go all out. Enjoy.

As you will pass those moments you will see a positive change in your personality and behaviour towards your life. Don’t just keep thinking about getting change. You have to be The change you want in your life.

Keep Walking

As it is said,

As Going gets Hard, Harder gets Going..

Life is a journey. Enjoy every piece of it.

A poem called “Life”

52-morning-meditations-calm
Life is about Focus

My routine scenario goes like I will wake up in the morning. I will try to cover the body with blanket as much as I could then I would expect the clock to move slowly and impress myself that I can still sleep for half an hour (knowing that it is already 9am in morning and I have to go to the office). As 1 hour passes by, I would reluctantly leave the blanket, drag my feet and look with one eye open in the mirror while brushing. I would somehow reach the office and after that the work and friends make me go through the day where I would leave the counts of hours and just wait for the small tea breaks else Meals break. 

Things go by and I would hardly remember the importance of the life. Today was different, while I was sitting alone looking at what I should upload on Instagram, I heard THAT voice of conscious,”What does life mean? Why do you work?” Sure I was unaware of the answer but I started pondering over answer. I had no answer,then I asked my seniors, friends and many others for the answer. They were personalized and I was not very happy with the explanations I got. Later after thinking and generalizing I got my version:-

 

Life is about chasing goals

 

Your life will only go in the flow if you have a direction to move. For example, If the water flows without direction then it has no use or force but if we observe the river on the other hand you will see the result when  water  flows in one  direction. Similarly, set a goal for the life and chase it with utmost passion. Forget everything in life. Spend money, energy, thinking, everything you have into it. If you don’t believe me observe your life also. You give priority to some thing or other in life, many people believe in chasing money, some job, some prefer fame, and surprisingly some also chase people, relation, old things, others run behind leisure and relaxation. Everyone have something which they care about a lot in the life but they don’t realize that they are following this aim.

 

As a writer I would suggest my readers to have a goal in life. People will never be satisfied, money will never be enough, relations will never be perfect, and food will always taste good if you spend at right place, but LIFE will not happen twice. It will happen only once, so work on something which make you run without breathe, spend without thinking, the result  would be food won’t matter to you , people will not matter, clothes won’t matter, fashion and make up won’t matter. You should do everything you are capable of….

See, its easy to stay inside the shell and keep admiring or wondering about the beautiful world. But I promise that once you will come out to chase the goal this beauty will reveal the beast and that will require the real you to discover new you and helps you to grow.

“ World is beautiful If you have a boat and a destination, Otherwise many ships sinks and noone care about them”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Innocent Heart 

Well,  when I was young,I was afraid to be left alone. Once I had developed chiken pox and I was admitted to hospital, the nurse scared me one night telling that I  am left here by my parents  forever…

I cried too hard and frightened to the point where doctors were informed that this young lad had not eaten anything for the past 2 days. Later, my parents were called and doctors gave me confidence that when I would get cured I will be discharged from hospital and I  can go back, enjoy being with my family. 

Now, I am 23 years old and living on my own. Life has shifted its phase. 

Now a days, 

1. I choose what is correct and what is wrong.

2. I have to prepare food or buy it from restaurant or dhaba as per my budget.

3. I am learning that saying NO does good rather than harm. 

4. I am okay to be myself. 

5. I love to speak with family over phone. 

6. Now, I am not over confident that strangers are not harmful. 

7. Sometimes, I disobey myself and remain Lost in my activities. 

8. Now I follow my rules and ethics of life. 
The journey is still on, I am still walking towards the aim. This wasn’t all cool, I have cried in pain. Inside me there is still a kid, who want to go home, spend time with family, cry, fight with mother and father. Irritate my brother. I still remember how much my mother loves me, how much I love her. 

I could still go back and do what all I want but this isn’t way of life.. I just can’t.. 
Give up

When there is a call for becoming a tiger, you just can’t be timid and act like a cat.
