The Republic Day of India: A Great National Festival

Posted by Naveen Mayura s On Sunday, 25 January 2015 0 comments
Unity in Diversity

I have great pleasure in extending my warm greetings and best wishes to all my fellow citizens. The Spirit of Indians in building the nation, it’s time to salute the Nation and also say “proud to Be an Indian”!

Many Indians struggled for over many years in shaping our nation. They are the key roles to make this nation what it is today.  So, to remembering and paying tribute to those brave hearts we have three national festivals which we celebrate every year as tribute giving occasions. Namely Republic day, Independence Day and Gandhi jayanthi.

It is time to celebrate the Republic day anniversary of India. Not only celebrate but also implement new ideas and good habit’s to build a even better nation. Today we are all saying that “proud to be an Indian”. Why? What is the reason, how India is made us to be proud of our self. What we have paid or pay to India in return?

Coming to the point.

India is not, as people keep calling it, as an underdeveloped country, but rather, in contains of its history and cultural heritage, a highly developed one in an advanced country of decay. Many foreign kings looted our country, Many foreigners ruled our country, Many insignificant politicians also looted our country. But still India  stands for its own special.

India as a great history which makes every Indian as proud Indian. Because the nation is not just build by Indian Constitution. It is build by giving many sacrifices, blood and involvement of pain and tears. In 1600AD east India Company and many foreigners came to India. And started acquiring and ruling India. at last India was completely under the control of British government and faced a lot of trouble from them. In 1857 some real patriots stood up for the nation and started a revolution against the British rule. Millions of people fought against the British and gave their breath for shaping India. A peep into the past will make our hearts heavy and eyes filled with tears. After the long time, after much revolution India got free from British rule in 1947. But does not had a standard rule and regulation. Some rules and regulation were required to drive the country. So a committee was organized under the chairmanship of B.R. Ambedkar. which was given the work of writing the constitution for India. To prepare the complete satisfied Indian constitution it took nearly three years, On November 4, 1947, the drafted document was submitted and after many negotiations, debates, and modifications the document was approved and signed by all the members of the Assembly on January 24, 1950. Two days later that on January 26, 1950, the constitution of India came into effect. Eventually, the political powers were taken away from the British and India became a 'Republic'.

In Indian history 26th January signifies the adoption of Indian Constitution in 1950. On this day India finally enjoyed the freedom of spirit, rule of law and fundamental principle of Governance. Republic Day is a day of the citizen of the country when he is entitled to be ‘all chief'. The word republic means a country that is ruled by people, elected by the the people of that nation. Every year the day is celebrated most magnificently in the capital State of India, New Delhi.  And also the day is celebrated with much enthusiasm throughout the country. As an Indian it is our duty to pay grand salutes to our great freedom warriors those who have made it desirable with their sweat, tears, and blood, for us. They struggled for Indian democracy and freedom. Today we enjoy the fruits of their struggle.

When we became republic country, things started changing. The command of country was in the people of the country. Elections were started and people selected their representative. For sure we have done a lot of Improvements after becoming republic but many problems like corruption and unemployment has grown up rapidly. So we need to find the solution for these problems, only then our country can become the best place on earth to live. On the eve of Republic day, cultural programmes are arranged in school, colleges and different public places. Political and social meeting also arranged for considering social and national issues. National flag is furled not only at government offices but also at public places. National anthem beats inspire the countrymen with feelings of patriotism.

In our development, even before Independence we had placed our emblem in some fields and after which our progress was huge. The world class kings  like Asoka and Akbar were born in India. the famous saint swami Vivekananda was born in India. We bought a Scientists like sir C.V.Raman, Dr. Abdul Kalam, and famous mathematician Ramanujan; we have excellent sports icon like Sachin Tendulkar, We have brilliant musician who had won two ascars at a time. Many people made our India as proud. Now it is the time for you. What you are go to pay for you country?

Unity in diversity has been the biggest symbol of our country. Now, it is time take a promise,  all of us that we will take some small steps to make our country a great nation, a better place for all, which always stands for human values. And there is only one caste, one religion, and that is 'Indian' Together, we all salute the Indian Flag and pay tribute to all our freedom warriors.

“The future depends on what we do in the present” be the change you want to see in the world. I feel that we make our progress in the good direction in the coming days and the feeling of oneness  remains in the progressive days of tomorrow.

Jai Hind. Jai Bharat!!

Books are our best classmates: A pearl residency of Knowledge.

Posted by Naveen Mayura s On Thursday, 22 January 2015 0 comments

Books are the wonderful and amazing gift for any mankind. It is the real treasure of knowledge to anyone in the universe. I am sure you will always agree this. Because for everyone, only the books are leading them in their life to be successful. Man cannot live alone. He needs some friends to get in time pass. Most of the people having the hobby of reading books when they are alone. The company of books gives you knowledge, solutions and many creative ideas. Every successful human being was succeeding by their habits and books.

Human beings are always students of books. The real guru in our life is only the books, there are lots of books. Books make us as a teacher, as a student, as a blogger, as a doctor, as a engineer, as a scientist etc, etc, etc.

Books which never demand anything for the service they provide to us. They educate us, they entertain us, they motivate us, and they shape us. The kingdom of books is as big as universe. There are books on literature, history, science, fiction, art, culture, architecture, civilization, fashion, technology, philosophy, etc. There is no sphere of life which has not been explored by the books. they are written in all languages of the world. They pass the knowledge and information from generation and generation. Helps us in innovation. They thrill us according to our taste.
Great scholars, scientists ,intellectuals, reformers and men of learning remain very close to books. They not only benefited themselves but also contributed a lot to their coming generations. The glamour’s progress of today, the ease and facility in every sphere of life is the result of books written by great people.The books of science and technology are very helpful for our young students. These volumes make our students more proficient in their relative subjects. These books are a gateway to new inventions and discoveries. The books on history make the man learned, wise, and his decision power strengthens wonderfully.

Books are not just for history, but for present and future also. The books are the mixture of reflection and different dimensions. They also brings you smile, just remember the memories of book you read form your start, the beautiful words and colorful pictures brings you smile. Reading book is an inspiration, playing with words inside it gives you strength, discussing it with others increase your knowledge. the important points of a book. Sometimes true, sometimes false, words inside it makes us laugh, sometimes cry, sometimes exciting, books are also like human- different faces with different stories, different climax. Without books this world would decline. They help to increase our interest. They expand our outlook. They enrich our thoughts. They give us inspiration to do great things in life. Reading books make every doubt clear- about our past also about our present. These are not only for kids; these are also for aged and for our youth too. They help us in understanding different aspects of life.

Hopefully, we’ll have a kind of more interesting topic as well… this space! This contains no fruit juice or pulp. Contains added flavor.

Every time there are number of questions in our mind and books are the best things to find out the answers to our questions. they are great source of entertainment and recreation. Big stories with sweet endings, some are easy to know, Reading is not the game of one day, keen learners and good readers are hard to find in this present generation. So, it's very important to tell future generation about the significance of reading as well as books. We should make reading as a habit not as a work to do. Its power helps you to overcome the past, change your situations, fight new obstacles and make better decisions.

We cannot even imagine the importance the books plays in our life. Thorough knowledge of these books and implementing them has taken many towards enlightenment. Reading the book dedicatedly with interest adds a lot to our knowledge and recognition. Books provide us company in both good and bad times. Books are the pearls of wisdom. Library is a place of peace, solitude and serenity. Hours can be spent in the library reading books. If we look into our career point of view, books keeps up abreast with current affairs and provides us with each and every subject to prepare for the competitive. Books are the most sincere, faithful and never falling friends. Everybody may deceive you but books will always remain beside during your bad times. “Life is a dish, Reading books is to smell it”. Thus books purify our thoughts and also make our thoughts devoted. So, I feel that one should always enjoy the company of books and regard the selfless nature of the books to each and every individual.

"Value of books is greater than gems, because gems show outer beauty while books radiate inner self". Reading a good novel or story will open a window and give you a view of things you never dreamed possible. Reading can help us to accomplish truly amazing things and at the same time is one of the best ways to reduce your stress level and can even help you by gaining the knowledge you need to solve problems. In the long run, it doesn't matter what you read but how much you read. The more you read, the more you will want to read because you will quickly discover the short and long term benefits of stress reduction in your life. The lessons of a lifetime of learning and success can be transferred from the pages of a book to your heart, mind and soul in a few short hours.

In the ancient times when man initially learnt how to live and the wheel of civilization started moving, he needed to save this information and memories somewhere. Perhaps it was the time when he too realized the necessity of writing. Man started knowing the art of writing gradually like everything else when he felt the need.

Habits which shapes you, here is a Small example : If you change your habits for reading books and if your pick good books it will change you and your interactions with other people as good. If you read bad books it will change you and your interactions with other people as bad. That all, It's Simple.

Your routines or habits regulate how you respond to practically every set of prospects which transverse our path. They determine, whether you will take the daily action you need to take in order to achieve your goals, what you will think about all day, how you will retain to any challenges, which will cross your path and they drive you every day, to be disciplined or lazy.

Bluehost - webhosting service provider

Internet technology is changing fast and getting online is hard up to here without having to care about keeping up with every new things. If you are an online enterpriner and if  you’re blogging for business, or just for fun, creating a successful blog can be an fabulously fruitful experience. when you are blogging or building an website, web hosting is one of the most important choice that you make as you begin the process of building your website. But what is hosting specifically? And how do you decide which host to go with away of the hundreds of webhost's available?

But with the hundreds of various web hosting providers, how do you choose? How do you know you’re hand-pick is the right one? but Did you know more people recommend Bluehost than any other web host in the sphere? It’s true! There are lots of reasons for this, but I know one thing that the bluehost is truly amazing technology. it committed to offer the best web hosting experience on the apple, mind-blowing customer service and monopoly-leading technology.

Company Overview

First of all, it would be good if we learnt some about the service provider we are about to host our website at. Bluehost is a well known web hosting company and even one of the most famous, though it is one of the oldest web hosting companies. they also enlarged the arena you can get to host your website, their bandwidth and the number of domain names you get per account. These specified changes puts Bluehost on the top of the market while keeping their prices reasonable. With Bluehost, you can get unlimited number of domains! along with, you can also host multiple domain names in one account.

Bluehost early began offering web hosting services to both personal and business customers once in 1996, this makes them one of the longest existing and most trusted of all over the web hosts. They are a large company hosting over 270,000 domains from there Utah headquarters. During the time Bluehost has been established they have seen many competitors come and go, not only are they still around, but they are right at the excellent of the industry.

You should be aware too that both Bluehost and hostgator share the same management and thus; you will find that they have much the same, if not sybolic, offers. So don't be surprised! One last thing to mention here, is that if you're looking for a shorter contract period, then it would be better for you to go for Bluehost.

Do you want to know if Bluehost is worth of your money or not? There are some things to check with any web hosting provider before we make a purchase decision. Let us help you in checking for these requirements, which include support, features, uptime, downtimes, price and etc,etc.

Let's we jump to what matters to you.

Some of the thing to consider while selecting a web hosting provider.


This is the point where maximum people start when they’re deciding on a hosting provider. But while it’s a good place to start, Bluehost plans come with Linux hosting only, although; their features set makes it an easy mission for both; professional and ordinary users.  it shouldn’t be the deciding factor.  It’s important to remember: you get what you pay for. More usally than not, the cheapo option isn’t always the best. Take a look at the fundamental needs of your site and compare hosting options that satisfy those needs first. or else you will likely stop spending more in the long run in terms of money, time, and even frustration.


Finally, recognize what makes your finest hosting best appraisal. Do they offer special features if you decided to host with them such as a free domain name, regular backups, etc. Are their tools easy to use and advanced? Do they offer upgrades and add-ons in-set up to make it easy to enlarge your hosting account when you need it? These are just some of the important aspect to see when selecting your web host. As you outline your website, you’ll start to understand more about what should matter better to you.

Free domain name - Registering a domain name costs money (usually between $10 and $20 dollars per year), and you cannot have a website on the internet without having registered it. Here Blue host saves you the money and dispute of registering your name. They also provide free name domain privacy. This stops all your contact details being broadcast on the WHOIS database. Most domain registration companies charge a fee for this service. Bluehost will keep on renewing your domain name registration free for as long as you host with them. Also, if for some reason you did need to change to a different hosting provider, the domain name is completely owned by, and registered to you. This makes switching very simple. Wow it cool.
Free site promotion tools - Tools for keyword analysis , search engine submission, and search engine position reporting are all included in one.


When you start building websites, you will have no idea what you are doing. As time go on, you discover techniques for improving your writing,SEO, conversion, and website take time it may stuck you in problems.This is a big one. If your site ever experiences problems you can’t fix, the fastest way to get things up and running is usually to speak with a real person who knows what they’re doing. Make sure your host provides great customer service. See what contact options are available when you need help (i.e. toll-free phone number, email, chat, etc.) Also consider when are they available and whether their support is in-house or outsourced.If you’ve ever called in seeking technical support, you know about the bluehost team is amazingly good at actually helping solve technical issues. There is lots of reasons people rock, but one major contributor is the fantastic culture Bluehost has cultivated from day one.  I think you’ll agree… it’s a good gig.

Bluehost's support team is very good and helpful. Although; they have put recently some restrictions to contact their customer support agents, as you have to book a trouble-ticket before you get the support you need. But don't let this point to worry you much, as Bluehost's service wouldn't cause you a headache that requires their support, but it will be as stable as you wish. And just in case, it's worth to mention that Bluehost provides a knowledge base to educate you more on dealing with any technical problems you may suffer.

Technical condition

Not either all web hosts are created one and the same. Many hosts make similar interest, but there are often big differences hosting experiences. And as most websites these days feature a lot of content, it’s more important than ever to find hosting providers with the hardware to back up their claims. First thing, find a hosting provider that builds and operates their own hardware. Find a host with enough RAM, processing power, and disk storage space for your website’s needs. Finally, look for information about reliability and server up time. This is important so as to ensure your website is always up and running when visitors come.

Interface (Control Panel)
Make sure your hosting provider has combine option of easy to use and understand. If you can’t rate out what you’re functioning with, it’ll make building a website much more confusing than it needs to be. Tasks such as installing WordPress, setting up email, configuring FTP accounts, etc… should be easy to find. Some hosting providers let you play with a demo hosting account, so take advantage of the opportunity to test their platform before you sign up. here no need to worry about it blue host is easy to use.

Tell me what you think!

A tribute to lord sun - Pongal 'O' Pongal...!- Happy Makara Sankranti

Posted by Naveen Mayura s On Wednesday, 14 January 2015 0 comments
happy Pongal

Makara Sankranti ( Pongal ) is the most widely celebrated Hindu harvest festival dedicated to the Sun God, Which is celebrated in various region of India. it is also known by different names and celebrated with different folkways in different provinces of india. Most popularly celebrated in Karnataka (Sankranthi), Andhra pradesh (Sankranthi) and Tamil Nadu (Pongal).

Special significance of pongal is the beginning of new journey of the Sun God towards north on this particular day as it is believed to have a favorable impact on life and well being.

In India as I said Sankranti is known by different regional names is below mentioned
(Pongal) Tamil Nadu. (Makara Sankranti) - Karnataka, Kerala,Andhra Pradesh,telangana, Goa,Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Sikkim, Jharkhand,  Madhya Pradesh,  Manipur, Uttarakhand, Bihar,  Chhattisgarh, Odishaand West Bengal (Uttarayan) Gujarat. (Maghi) Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Punjab. The day before, people of Punjab celebrate Lohri. (Bhogali Bihu) Assam. (Khichdi) Uttar Pradesh and Bihar

In other countries too the day is celebrated but under different names and in different ways. Nepal ( Maghe Sankranti) , Thailand( Songkran), Myanmar (Thingyan) Cambodia( Moha Sangkran) Sri Lanka( Pongal, Uzhavar Thirunal)

As my knowledge I think among these,sankranti is most famous is in tamilnadu (Pongal) which is celebrated for the jubilation of getting new crops for harvesters. This will be celebrated for four days as a thanksgiving occasion in which harvesters pay honour to the Sun god, nature and cattle's for their contribution in agricultural activities. The festival is celebrated over a period of four days, between January 13 and January 16. The last day of the 'Maargazhi' month of the Tamil calendar which falls on January 13th is celebrated as Bhogi Pongal. The other three days of festivities fall on the 'Thai' month. In orderly Thai Pongal, Mattu Ponal and Kanum Pongal. Each of these festive celebrations is unique in its concept which has its own standards and way of celebration. This festival is celebrated with great shine and devotion in which people clean their houses, wear new clothes and make colourful rangoli (also known as Kolam) at the main entrance of their houses and cook delicious cuisine. In North Karnataka, kite flying with community members is also a tradition.The colourful and vivid celebrations of Pongal remain the much awaited festive activity of tamilnadu.

The First Day - Bhogi Pongal
The first day of Pongal is celebrated as Bhogi Pongal. On this day people clean their homes and collect all unwanted things which are thrown in fire lighted by using cow-dung cakes and woods. This ritual is called Bhogi.

The Second Day - Surya Pongal or Thai pongal
Surya or Thai Pongal is the most important day in Pongal festival series in which the Sun god is praised.It is the main day of the festival, falling on the first day of the Tamil month Thai. It is the day when festive celebration begins. On this day family gather outside their home and cook 'pongal' in new clay pots. It is celebrated by boiling rice with fresh milk and jaggery in new pots, which are later topped with brown sugar, cashew nuts and raisins early in the morning and allowing it to boil over the vessel. This tradition gives Pongal its name. When the rice overflows from the pot, the people shout 'Pongal O Pongal' as they dedicate the first grain and pay tribute to the Sun. The overflowing of rice symbolizes a fortunate farming season. It is also the first day of the Tamil month Thai.

The Third Day - Mattu Pongal
The third day of Pongal is dedicated to cattle and is known as Mattu Pongal. People offer prayers to the bulls, cows and other farm animals for their contribution in agriculture. On this day cattle are bathed, oiled and decorated with shining metal caps and their horns are painted in bright colors. Tinkling bells, flower garlands and sheaves of corn are tied around their necks.
Jallakatu is a very famous game played in certain parts of Tamil Nadu. Hundreds of youth line up to hold a bull by its horn and tackle it with bare hands. The sport, though dangerous to both man and cattle, attracts thousands of viewers from all over the world every year.

The Fourth Day - Kaanum Pongal
The fourth day of Pongal celebration is Kaanum Pongal. It is the time of joint family celebrations in which people decorate their home with Kolam in decorative pattern made up of rice flour which is drawn on the floor or outside the door. It is the painted prayers and welcome sign that brings prosperity to home. Also in which people visit their friends and relatives for wishing , blessing, exchanging sweets, gifts and greetings.

Any way dear Shoppers(Readers) its time to say Happy sankranti,( Sankranti subhashayagalu) (Sankranti subhakangshayalu) Happy Pongal,( Iniya Pongal Nalvazhthukkal)

Shopify Latest Checkup and Snippy Final Dress! : Shopify - The Best E- commerce Software to Create an Online Store | 2015

Shopify Latest Reveiw

Hello, Shoppers and future online shop owners!

Today we are going to talk about the ecommerce platform, Shopify. Stay tuned for the advantages and disadvantages of this software.  And hopefully by the end of this general idea you will know whether or not Shopify is for you. Honestly it comes a time when you need to take your business to a brand new level. Maybe you’re in just getting started and you have had some easy going success. Or you have a niche you want to practice but have no idea where to find a provider or how to market your business.

I get asked myself all the time about other ecommerce platforms such as BigCommerce and magento. While they want to continue to improve, I think Shopify offers the most solutions and options for the wide range of business owners from newbies to experts. Being able to start, right away with a free theme or be able to create a totally custom site is advantageous and hugely beneficial in the ecommerce marketplace. Having both the options and the simple and easy to use combine makes Shopify the best choice.

First, I will give you a pithy Introduction about Shopify.

So ,What is Shopify?

Shopify is an ecommerce platform that allows you to create your own online store and sell to customers all over the world. The site was created in 2006, when the owners couldn't find an easy-to-use ecommerce software for their store, so they decided to build their own. Today, more then one lakh twenty thousand active stores are powered by Shopify. Shopify also has Some of the big customers  were including like General Electric, Good as gold, The Angry Birds Toys, Sam Bat and much more.

Shopify is an all-in-one e-commerce platform that allows you to get a professional e-commerce website to sell your products online quickly and at an affordable monthly price. Shopify lets you organize your items, customize your store entrance, accept credit card payments, track and respond to orders — all with a few clicks of the mouse. Retailers can start selling their products online in just a few minutes. Plus Bonus point is, you  do not need to pay extra for marketing and search engine optimization services because Shopify has integrated all these features along with online shopping cart software. By the end of this post you will also have an idea of getting  your own online store with products,love to have a custom domain name, your first blog post, wide range of customers  and a good understanding of how Shopify works. So read this post to know how easy it is to create your store with Shopify.

Advantages of Shopify

Number 1:  Advanced Design Themes - One of the best thing I love about Shopify is the design themes. They are specifically designed for selling products, whereas the Weebly designs are more standard website designs with an online store added in after the fact. I think it offer a very simplistic design templates that is perfect to get a start creating an ecommerce website. We can add homepage images, products, setting prices,  credit cards, adding banking and shipping information, etc. Take a look at the Shopify Theme Store to see their designs.

Number 2:  Shopify Apps - Shopify offers expandability through the Shopify App Store. Third party developers create process for Shopify in the form of plug-in apps that you can integrate into your store.

Number 3:  Retail connection – If you have a cube and heavy artillery retail store and an online shop, Shopify can integrate the two harmlessly. They provide the cash registers and software for your store and the inventory in your retail store. And online store will sync automatically.

Number 4:  Palce for evolution– If your online sales explode and you’re on a Weebly eCommerce store, you may need to upgrade to a new platform. Not with Shopify. They have enterprise level ecommerce with Shopify Plus. It offers priority support, high end professional hosting, and more API flexibility to keep on pace with the needs of your growing business.

Number 5:  Estimated  Shipping - With the Shopify Unlimited plan, you can link up your shipping accounts from FedEx and UPS, so that shipping can be computed to the cent. This ensures you’re always charging your customers exactly what you will pay for shipping.

Number 6:   Also extreme features – Since Shopify is specifically designed as an e-commerce platform, they have built in more advanced features than Weebly. Examples are a card reader, gift cards, advanced reports, and scam analysis tools. You will have to upgrade to the Shopify Unlimited plan for these features, but at least they are available.

Number  7: You don't have to be an awesome programmer  to set up shop. The Shopify setup is really easy. First, you choose a template. The hardest part about this is that there are over 100 templates to choose from! Next, you customize it. Basically, you just play around with the theme settings and make any changes to the font, logo, colors, etc. After it looks the way you want it to, launch it! It doesn't get much easier than that.

Number 8: You get your own guru. With the setup of your shop, you also receive a guru to help you out by giving advice on properly setting up your shop, selling products, etc. Not only that, but your guru will help you advertise! All new Shopify stores can receive a $100 credit for additional advertising on Google Adwords so you can promote your shop on Google.

Number 9: You can sell to anyone in the world if you choose! With Shopify, you aren't really limited on languages or currencies. Besides the fact that you can write your shop in any language you want, you can also collect in other currencies. Shopify supports local currencies and tax rates, so you can live in india and sell to someone in USA. It’s just wow! and lovely huh?

Number 10: It's really easy to categorize your inventory. Like any major online retailer, you can categorize your inventory into "collections". For example, you can put a t-shirt into the "tees and tanks" category and the "sales" category.

Number 11: It's also really easy to categorize your customer base. You can put your customers into groups based on whatever factors you want -- where they are located, how much they spend, etc. Not only will this give you a better idea of who your customers are, it will also allow you to target certain groups for marketing emails.

Disadvantages of Shopify

Number 1: The really good plans can get high priced. For example, as you move up from one plan to the next, you get significantly more space and lower credit card fees, along with other features, but you will have to pay quite a bit more. For companies like Tesla, this doesn't matter much, but for shops with high inventory but low prices, this could be significant.

Number 2: It redirects customers from Shopify for checkout. One major complaint about Shopify is that it redirects to another site during the checkout process. This may or may not scare your customers off from buying, but it's definitely something to note if you are considering using Shopify.

Overall, Shopify is very well loved among its customers. Try as I might, I was hard pressed to find complaints from Shopify's thousands of sing out fans. Okay, they weren't giving voice, but they were singing its praises.
