Both ends of a knife (Part - 1) (My Novel)

            The pregnant lady forgot to scream until the doctor did, and he started to scream. He was four hours ahead of time to feel this earth, but he knew he would always have time in his life to even it up. He was not yet ready to see this bright world (though just on the outset) and was craving again for the eternal darkness and warmth he felt in his mother’s womb. May be he did not realize there were many more things he is going to be jus craving before he reaches the second womb of motherland. After quite a reluctant opposition and with undesired struggle from the maternity department, he rose with the sun…
            The mother was very happy to hear that she had a son but that too did not last long when she discovered that the child was just about a kilo and was barely fifteen centimeters in size. The nurse had actually fitted him in her palms and showed to her. She fainted. In her Subconscious mind she traveled back to the day when that forgettable incident happened…It was barely three months after her marriage but she had already started feeling the pain of separation from the love and care of her family. In the midst of all this came the heartening news that she was pregnant. She thought this would instill new happiness in her new family but to her despair her problems had just got worse. Her relationship with her mother-in-law had swollen beyond limit and it reached a stage where she did that unforgivable sin. That day the problem between her and her mother-in-law got worsened to a limit where she was pushed out of the house without the knowledge of her husband. She did not know where to go as she didn’t want to go to her own home. Suddenly the worst idea of finishing her life came into her mind and not minding the small life inside her sleeping peacefully unaware of this cruel world, she got a cheap rated poison (she had to decide among a variety of types in it!!!). Not even bothering to talk to her husband or think about a being yet to visit her place she drank it. It would have been better if she would have died. But unluckily one of her relatives saw her and admitted her in hospital and had saved her life. But in the process she had unknowingly spoiled whole of the system of the child. Even before he was born he had to accustom people using himself even without his permission.           
            But today he has escaped various theories of doctors that he may not be alive much to a combination of sadness and joy from his mother. His dad was very much excited and happy seeing his half-child (half the size of a normal child) and even his grandma was happy at him just because he was a male child. Even till date he doesn’t know the reason why male child was superior to a female one. He in fact felt girls were the most blessed creations of god as they had the freedom to cry and kiss whenever and wherever they wanted… but his moms single second of foolishness had left him completely out of control over his body. He could barely stand even at the age of three. Also it had created a heavy pulp to remain forever in his lungs removing which would mean life danger. Thus he was deprived of all the running, playing which his counterparts got though he got jus a bit of fresh air when his dad drove him in his cycle and in his bedroom’s window (as that was the only room in their house)...

My 10 years in Application Development

It's been around 10 years since I started programming. May be a bit more, if I have to include my first attempts at C programming in school. But it would be a grave insult to call remembering ten lines of code and just replicating it to put a star on the screen. I also did a course on Visual basic, but it was more gimmicks that Application development. But it was truly in the year 2007 when I started my Master in Computer Applications that I found a new flare for developing applications. 
I was very late to computers in general and even when I joined my Masters, computers were not really accessible to me. But when I joined my Masters where one is actually expected to hone the skills which they already have, but in case it was were I was learning the skills, initially it was very difficult. I was not sure what computers had for me nor I had a natural flair for programming. But the thing about computers that attracted me was the visual medium it gave. Initially it was just a door t…

Changing Timezone in Postgresql, Ubuntu

Timezone and locale are integral concepts that one should be aware of when implementing a System. For example. if you create a database in PostgreSql, it will use the default System settings for the database. Lets say you have a server in UK and your client is US. If the client tries to retrieve the current date or time, it is going to show the UK time and not the US one.
Today I encountered a different issue in our client place where the Ubuntu timezone and PostgreSql timezone were showing a incorrect values. Instead of Indian Standard Time (IST) it was showing Pacific Daylight Time(PDT). These are the steps that I followed to change the timezone to IST in PostgreSql and Ubuntu.
Changing timezone in Ubuntu:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdataYou will be prompted to choose the continent and then the area. Provided screen shots where we configure the location.
Use TAB key to navigate to the OK button and then press Enter.

The changes will get reflected immediately. To check it you can open a n…

Dissecting Openbravo 3.0 UI Architecture

Having been worked on Openbravo 3.0 UI for more than a year now (right from RC1) , Openbravo has leaped ahead of most contemporary ERP's in terms of UX design and usability. And a part of the credit has to go to the community too as they were actively involved in finalizing the UX and also involved enthusiastically in tested out the RC versions and providing their feedback.

In this post, I have tried to draw limelight on the basic UI components that are being used in Openbravo and their corresponding smartclient components. This is just to provide a very high level idea on how the entire architecture is coupled together. I have tried to use a single screen shot of Openbravo interface and tried to map the base components here.

The hierarchy can be visualized in simple terms as follows:

Exhaustive information on these components are provided in the Openbravo Wiki here.

Most of these components are defined and managed from individual files (or code) thereby making it really easy to …
