29 09 2009

I was pleased to see the interest the readers have shown on my previous post titled ‘Indian Comics : an intro’
As promised earlier,here I am with a lil info on other characters from the RC universe.


Vinay was traumatized when he saw his classmate being murdered by none other than the Head of Police.Accidently he found the murder weapon,a police revolver. The wicked Policeman came after his life to save his reputation in the society

'Parmanu' means 'super atom' in sanskrit

His family was brutally murdered but Vinay was saved by his maternal uncle-Prof.K.K – who is a nuclear scientist,Vinay calls him Professor.
In Professor’s lab,they are attacked by a monster affected by nuclear mutations- Bufalo.After a lot of struggle, Vinay saves Professor’s life which encourages him to reveal a secret invention to Vinay.The professor  gives him a nucleo-stable suit and high-tech gadgets that made him PARAMNU – the masked protector of Delhi.
Vinay joins the Police force and covers up all the evidences leading to Parmanu and hence comes up as a super hero with ultra-atomic powers.
Professor K.K or Kamal Kumar Verma was killed in a tragedy,but he left a robot (instinctively named PROBOT) to assist Parmanu.

Lucky Ali : the soul soother

26 09 2009

lucky-ali-2Lucky Ali,the charming voice of his made him my favrite in no time.I admire the freshness and originality of his tracks and I prefer listening to his music to destress.
There is something mysterious in his ballad style tracks that keep me spellbound and I realise lately that I am also humming side by side. The lyrics are simple yet so soothing and I could always find one to suit my mood.I can’t tell you how much I like the instrument called Guitar,and I think nobody can make music out of it the way Lucky do.
There is no rush in the flow and and the serenity in each line is as soft as silk.My favrites include
– Anjaani rahon mein
-O sanam
-Behti nadi
-Kabhi aisa lagta hai
-Nahi rakhta dil mein
-Dekha hai aise bhi
-Tere mere saath jo hota hai

Connecting to BSNL broadband on Ubuntu 9.04

2 09 2009

Hi friends…i was overwhelmed by the response i got for my first post on Ubuntu/linux.My college promotes open source at the highest level and we are lucky to have mentors like Vipin Sir & Avinash Joshi to lead the FOSS club in our campus.Yesterday Arvind asked me to share the cmd-line procedure to connect to broadband.The GUI didn’t work for me and that forced me to look for a cmd-line version.
I went through a lot of posts on other blogs and linux forrums,each with their own solutions….but only one worked for me.I think the following process is specific for a DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) modem where you need a username and password to connect to the internet.
Here’s how you do it:

Installing VLC player on Ubuntu 9.04

1 09 2009

It was the first time that I was attempting to install a 3rd party software on a linux distro.I browsed through many webpages before I got the correct procedure.I agree that its a tiresome affair but then its the complexity that makes it more interesting as its not a cakewalk as it is in Windows where you just click the .exe file to graphically install the apps.
Here’s a step by step installation procedure for VLC 1.0.1 golden eye.VLC is the most popular video player and its an open source software that makes it more exciting.[Note that this is for Ubuntu 9.04-the latest version as of now-codenamed Jaunty Jackalope; hence I think this should work on Linux Mint 7 too (as it is based on Ubuntu 9.04).

Indian national football team beat Syria to retain the Nehru Cup in a nail-biting face-off.The game went on to enter the sudden death where goal keeper Subrata Paul defied all odds and came up with the best performance of his life that won him the game and the man of the match award.

Indian football team is definitely going places as it was their 3rd consecutive title win;something never achieved before.All credit goes to captain Bhaichung Bhutia,coach Bob Houghton & the support from the crowd that was as intense as you would see only during an Indo-Pak cricket match.
