7 days in Tokyo and Kyoto

On April 24, 2016, in Blog, Guest Post, People and Places, Travel, by Amiya

I went for a 7-day trip to Japan in the late summer month of June. While I did miss the cherry blossom season, which mostly runs from April to March, I did get a round trip ticket from Singapore to Japan for only S$425 from Malaysian Airways.

The views were absolutely breathtaking despite it not being the best time for cherry blossoms.

While travelling there was so many things flashing in mind about japan which I used to hear from my mother and grandmother and read from books. It met all the expectations of mine. People in japan are extremely gentle and helping. Never hesitant to help a stranger.

One code to rule them all: Writing cross-platform application from single codebase using Corona SDK

On June 23, 2013, in App Development, Blog, Technology, by Amiya

Mobile is going to be the next big thing. With an estimated worth of over $25 billion by 2015, Flurry expects mobile consumption to exceed TV and web very soon. Unfortunately the mobile market is severely fragmented both in terms of the hardware as well as the software. There are no uniform standards of development […]

Mt. Bromo – Kawah Ijen Tour

On November 11, 2012, in Blog, Gallery, People and Places, Travel, by Amiya

Indonesia is a wonderful place to visit. Me and my buddies went for a long weekend trip to Kawah Ijen and Mt. Bromo. Being a bunch of young kids we prefer to plan our trips on our own rather than taking package tours. While it sure does require more planning it gives freedom to plan the trip to our need and satisfaction. To help my fellow friends and travelers I’m sharing some tips and markers towards planning your own trip. Also I have shared some amazing pictures that I took while on the trip. The landscapes are absolutely breathtaking and it is a must place to see for all nature lovers.

Depression and Yoga

On July 30, 2012, in Blog, Guest Post, Yoga, by Amiya

Depression is an illness that involves the body, mood and thought. It a one feels affects the way a person eats and sleeps, the way one thinks about things. People with depressive illness can’t merely pull themselves together and get better. Depression is a stress related illness. It is the most common illness most people suffer at some time of their life. One in six women and one in nine men suffer from depression. Depression does not always have a definite cause and can strike suddenly. It is related to stress, mostly emotional and if you are under stress for a long period you are likely to become depressed. Your depression may start with a feeling of being under the weather. When depression begins you feel low, your self esteem falls and you lose your motivation. Procrastination sets in and you feel worst. This is the start of a spiral downwards.

दर्द का अर्थ समझे

On July 30, 2012, in Blog, Faith and belief, Guest Post, irregular, Philosophy, Serious, by Amiya

जिंदगि में कोई दर्द नहीं उठाना चाहता है | लेकिन दर्द किसीका भी पीच्छा छोडता नहीं है | हमारी भलाई इसमें है कि हम उसका अर्थ समझे | हमें यह समझ लेना चाहिए कि हर समय दर्द का कोई ना कोई कारण होता है | वह कारण हम से ही बनता है | लिकिन हम उस का स्रोत के लीए इधर उधर तलासते रहते है | हम अनजाने से दर्द का आधर बनाते रहते है | लेकिन जब दर्द आजाता है तो हम दूसरों को कोसते रह जाते हैं | हर समय यह समझना कि दर्द से हमारा नुकसान ही होता है, सही नहीं है | सच में दर्द आता है जब हम गलत रास्ते में होते हैं और सही रास्ते पर आना बहूत ही जरूरत होता है | कभी कभी दर्द के चपेट में आकर इंसान मौत चाहता है, मर भी जाता है ; जब कि उस दर्द में ही उसका आगे के जीवन का आधार होता है | जिंदेगि का विकास का आधार होता है दर्द का अर्थ समझ्ने के लिए हमारी कुशलता |

Mamata Banerjee AKA DiDi (she does have some characteristics of DiDI from Dexter’s Lab) recently warns Facebook and Twitter – suggesting she is “not a cartoon”. Just a while ago she arrested a Professor from Jadavpur University for drawing a cartoon of her. When asked she said it is always so difficult to catch criminals and rapist so we are compensating by going after University professors and people who “draw me”.

Tainted reality – The incompleteness of our perceived world

On April 17, 2012, in Blog, Neuroscience, Philosophy, Research, Serious, by Amiya

Over time one thing I learned the hard way is that people can have radically different views. This is true even for the most objective of things as well as most rational people. If at the most basic level, things like color, smell and taste can have very different subjective experience between people, then it is not hard to imagine why that same phenomena cannot extend to more complex circumstances like food, art, music, beliefs, ideas and creativity.

Langkawi – Places to visit

On April 13, 2012, in Blog, Gallery, Nature, People and Places, Photography, Travel, by Amiya

The previous weekend was a long one, so we (me and my flatmates) planned a trip to Kedah Langkawi located in the Andaman sea some 30 Km from the coast of Malaysia. Best way to reach there is by air – but that is if you can afford the tickets. Langkawi being a prime destination for honeymoon couples is a comparatively (compared to other parts of Malaysia) costly place.

Cop Logic

On March 16, 2012, in Blog, Comics, Serious, Society, by Amiya

Delhi has been known for quite some time as the rape capital of India. The situation in nearby areas including Gurgaon and Noida is no better. While the crime rates are on an incline the attitude of the police as well as the Government is appalling. Simply put the security of women is not really their problem. So if you don’t want to be raped do not get out after 8 pm, really simple! I find it hard to believe how these people can say that with a straight face. These cities including the capital projects a dim and saddening picture to the world. I feel bad when foreigners visiting Delhi say India is an unsafe country and probably think Indians have no respect for women. I don’t know what has to be done to improve the situation but the attitude of police and the Government is only detrimental to an already bad situation.
