50* : Up in the Air!

Wow! Just completed my 50th Flight experience. It took me 10 years to score these runs and there are so many who can easily do this in 10 overs ?

This word, life, it has so many meanings. On my 50th flight, i was trying to recollect the experience of my 1st flight. It’s unbelievable how such small things in life become memories for a lifetime.

Well if you ask me how many batches i have taken in the last 10 years, honestly speaking i have never counted them till now 😉

1995 – 2014 = Time Travel

My mobile number ends with 1995, Java was released in 1995, DDLJ was released in 1995, Before Sunrise was released in 1995, …

1995, off late everything is winding back to 1995. My mind is stuck in 1995. I don’t know but i can’t remember a random year of my life more than this one, 1995. I recently watched movies of these series, Before Sunrise, Before Sunset & Before Midnight and I was left wondering how 18 years unfolded in front of me. It was simply unbelievable. What i saw was real people getting old in front of me and i was just 5 hours old by the time i completed them. I was left speechless!

Also I still remember how crazy i was when DDLJ was released, i just wanted to watch this movie at any cost back then. When this week DDLJ completed 1000 weeks, i realized i was also a part of this journey. Oh man! My brain is going crazy right now, it seems as if i am time travelling right now. I think i should stop because i have a lecture tomorrow and i don’t want to be stuck in 1995 😉

I still don’t know if i have grown young or old with time. I think the age of a person has nothing do with time. If i remember just a few days or months or years of my life gone by, then what i have actually lived is a very small portion and the rest has just gone by, that was not my time.  I think it’s like yielding a Thread in Java, where you give your time to some other Thread to complete the task. Oh yes, now i am clear, now i understand what concurrency is all about 😛 Damn, it took me 19 years just to understanding Multithreading in Java 😉 and that too while i was writing this post 🙂 😀

And i still don’t know when will i be able to match my hair style with SRK of 1995 😉

Good night world, see you in 1995!

Haj: Journey of a lifetime!

In a few months time from now, it will be time for the world’s largest pilgrimage, travelling to the city of Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia. I was lucky that i was a part of this journey last year, 2013(1434 H). Each and every thing that we experience during this journey is like a lesson for mankind. This post will serve the purpose of sharing my experiences with my fellow brothers who are planning to perform Haj this year.

IMG_0206IMG_0108  IMG_0109 IMG_0110If you want to experience universal brotherhood, what better place there can be in the world? I met people from almost all corners of the world. It was truly an amazing experience. When all the Muslims wrap themselves in two piece of white cloth, then the experience is truly mesmerizing​.

Past 10s

Life has been great. I have journeyed for 33 years now and I cannot believe i have completed 10 years in the field of Corporate Training. I don’t remember the exact date, but it was the month of Feb in 2004 when it all started. I do remember the fact that it was difficult for people to accept me because as soon as i entered any batch, i would appear as a college kid to the crowd. Even today when i enter a batch, i don’t look like a person who has 15 years of IT experience.

But the most important thing is that people accepted me, respected me for my knowledge and gave me an opportunity. Who in the world can succeed on his own. I owe all my success to each and every person who has been a part of this journey. Thanks everyone for your unconditional love and support.

Now it’s time to think about the Future 10s 🙂

Java EE : The Uprising!

I have been following Java EE for all these years since it’s inception. I still remember the old EJB 1.x days and then the hit/flop EJB 2.x and then the brand new EJB 3.x version. To be honest Java EE has learnt a lot from Spring framework since EJB 3.x. Spring completely changed the way we thought about developing enterprise applications. No one ever thought in the past that plain POJOs will be the first class citizen in an enterprise application, but now it’s so true. Java EE 5 was the first version when the sheds of complexity were removed in favour of simplicity and productivity followed by JEE 6. And now with Java EE 7 knocking on the doors, it’s time to come back to the core. Most of the features available in Spring like DI, Batch processing, Interceptors, simplified APIs, … are now a part of the standard specification. So why wait, let’s upgrade! But yes, at the same time Spring has a lot more horsepower and that’s why it’s still so so ahead in the race!

After the Hack, I am Back!

It’s been months. Finally after setting up the website again, i am happy to be back. Still lost a lot of content in the process. Also i was very busy because of the Haj Pilgrimage that i was part of this year. Will be back to work from this week onwards and hope to be more active than before.
