THIS IS THE BEST MEDICAL NEWS WEBSITE

It is indescribable to say in words about the power of the internet.  Here there are no two worlds like developed world and developing world , but only one i.e. Information World.

The guy sitting in Silicon valley in the US and the labourer wiping his sweat in a dusty countryside in  the African continent have equal access to the same information on the internet.

This is the boon of technology which will brighten the lives of millions of people who are living in subhuman conditions.  Seeing the gravity of the problem, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has promised to give internet to the remaining two-thirds of the world that don't have internet access, through an initiative called internet.org.

Beauty lies in the looks of beholder;
If you have a pair of creative eyes,
everything in Nature looks like a poem.

MY LIGHT VERSE : MIDDLE-AGE IS A CRISIS

Middle-age is a crisis unless you have creative hobbies.
It is the age to expect high from everybody.
It is life’s busiest journey.

I can now enjoy the company of either children or old,
but fear of middle-aged, not because I need to do something for them,
but  sick of their high expectations from others.

When it comes to expectations,
expect more from YOURSELF than anybody could ever expect.

GOOGLE B-DAY

As I grow in age (now 45), I remain little lethargic on my b-days.  Perhaps, there seems to be no apparent reason but I know it is  monotony. 

Though I do the same chores daily, I have the option to do differently.   This lesson comes  from my digital mate. Who else? It's Google!

Ever since Google was founded in 1998, the  Homepage of this giant internet search engine used to deck up with new doodle/ logo befitting to every occasion.

The Google was founded six years after I entered into my service. By that time, computers were very much in the nascent stage with only word processors powered by DOS.

1998 was a remarkable day in the lives of Google Founders - Larry Page and Sergey Brin.  History witnessed these young guys slowly climbing the ladder of success by founding a company in the midst of their studies - taking leave from their doctoral programme in computer science at Stanford University.

WOMAN BLOGGER OF PAR EXCELLENCE


In October, 2011,  when I wrote a post on my friend Mr. Ali who is my colleague and fellow writer,  I began the article with this great quote of  Ralph Waldo Emerson : In my walks, every man I meet is my superior in some way, and in that I learn from him. (you can read that article  here )

This blog KNOWEB is a window to the world on knowledge and information.  So I don't have inhibitions to bring the best in front of my readers.   Where ever, I find the  credible information, I share that  instantly with  my readers and I became slave to that habit.

BROWSING DISCIPLINE

Wisdom is knowing what to do next; Skill is knowing how to do it, and Virtue is doing it.

                 -  David Starr Jordan


Your brain can do multi-tasking sub-consciously, but your conscious mind can concentrate or do only one  activity at a given time.   But majority of us, rarely feel this difference and try to multi-task which is the root-cause of all tensions in daily life.

You know  after certain age, reading is for edutainment and this blog's main motto  is that only.  Often I feel that I  pressure my mind to read a lot in less time. It is ludicrous to think so.  Even, when I browse internet, I used to open multi-windows to pace up my mental demands/to quench my knowledge thirst

GIANT GURU OF YOGA

I could vividly remember what exactly pushed me to buy each book in my personal library  which
was started way back in 1990.

The collection of  these books mirrors my steady shift in taste  from  Eastern Spirituality to  Western Self Help genre. Majority of these books are either Best Sellers or somewhere I read about them  in a newspaper/ magazine.

When it comes to health, I have envious collection of books on it. I don't believe in fancy way of going to gyms for the sake of fitness. If we adopt Yoga, much of fitness regimen could be done at  home itself.  Here, it is better to follow the food and exercise  according to your body-type as prescribed in Ayurveda.

ROOT CAUSE OF OUR BACKWARDNESS

Image result for illiteracy in india
Illiteracy is crippling India more than anything and it is main blockade for our progress.

 Even in this Information Age with internet as a sort of our personal assistant, large swathes of India are not even connected with basic electricity, roads, especially internet.

Still India is put at 126th rank in Human Development Index by UNESCO

When we don't have education, majority of our people remain as unskilled workers and can't dream big in life. They are forced to languish in poverty.

THIS IS MY ALL TIME FAVORITE QUOTE

This is my all time favorite quote on the first page of Anthony Robbins much acclaimed work "Awaken the Giant Within'' around 2005.

Deep within man dwell those slumbering powers; 
powers that would astonish him, 
that he never dreamed of possessing; 
forces that would revolutionize his life if aroused and put into action.


                                    - Orison Swett Marden

If every one of us work upto the potential we are endowed, we will reach to our desired goals without much fuss !

MY SERMON TO TACKLE THE ENEMY

When you give an advice, it should be  crisp.  Junk should not flow into the matter.  Here is my sermon to tackle an enemy :

  • Be logical with that person.
  • Smiling gesture to maximum questions.
  • Listen patiently. Blocking communication will have a devastating effect.
  • No enimity in bonafide official dealings.
  • Your mouth should be in your heart and not vice-versa.
  • Win over the situation rather than the person.
  • Don't leak your plans.
  • No verbal spat.
  • Try to keep relationships as a goal and try to be a good person.
  • Try to save the situation before subordinates.  Your wisdom needs to be reflected in your acts.
  • No person is enemy all the times; circumstances make a person a friend or enemy.
What best advice you get more  than Sun Tzu's timeless classic : Art of War. (click here to download the book free)

DEVDUTT PATTANAIK'S BOOK ''THE SUCCESS SUTRA''


If you want to read anything on Indian Mythology turn to Devdutt Pattanaik.  He is a medical doctor turned leadership consultant.  More than that, he is a prolific writer on Indian Mythology.  His popular work Business Sutra is a course for management graduates at Indian School of Business, Hyderabad, India.

For me it seems that Pattanaik is in Sutra-series mode attempting to  narrate all the mythological wisdom in business parlance. 

The title of this book The Success Sutra, an Indian approach to wealth is very catchy.  The speciality of Devdutt books is his signature doodles along with prose. click here to read further

VIRAL VIDEO OF ENNA DA RASCALAS

QUALITY BLOGGING NEEDED


Still, it is surprising to me how it happened.

 My blog was conceptualized around 2004 or 2005 as KNOWEB, but it took six long years to get ignition   to write a post on this blog.  I know that it is a lame excuse but a serious introspection would set right the path without crawling such mistakes in future occasions.

The pageview data of my blog for the last couple of years is quite encouraging

when I started writing on daily basis not with an eye for monetary gains but to ventilate my thoughts.  When I go into details, in March 2011 the total monthly pageviews of my blog is 180 which now grew into 5,200 (August, 2015).  I know that it is not a great achievement.  But for a nascent writer like me, it is a huge moral booster.

FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION


Freedom of expression is supreme among all rights. When that right becomes the dear commodity, all other sorts of rights are futile and it mars creativity.

Of late, it is seen that the world is fast becoming intolerable threatening the creative expression. Demanding bans on certain films or books. Unnecessary litigations are created burdening the judiciary which is already overloaded with cases.

When the film ‘Aarakshan’ was banned for screening in Uttar Pradesh in 2011, it created furore. The issue died down only when the producers sought the intervention of judiciary which cleared the decks for release of the film in the State.

GOLF BALL WISDOM

Spirituality and Golf game have strange connection. No doubt it is a game for privileged few i.e. the cream of society.

But the wisdom this game offers is amazing and unparalleled to any other games. Let me confess that I know little about this game until I saw a book written by famous Indian-American doctor Dr. Deepak Chopra , ''Golf for Enlightenment - The Seven Lessons for the Game of Life'' published in 2003.

The game of life and Golf have many similarities. We imagine to achieve more but at the end of the day could register success in only those tasks we put all our energies in right time and in right amount. Likewise, Golf also is a game of presence of mind. Click here to read further

HERE IS MY NEW BLOG FOR BOOK LOVERS

Just imagine life thirty years back.  You have to send all your documents by post or courier and cough up money for such service. There was no internet in India, especially for common man.  Government's Postal Department is emperor in the business of sending your dak.  Communication is mostly through letters and post cards.

Fast-forward 2015 ! The Power of Information Technology.  Free flow of information to any part of the world, be it written, voice or video.  Transmission of information is free.  But you have to pay for connecting to internet. 

 I dream for a day when Internet Service becomes free in India.  Internet on mobile telephony may be kept for a price, but fixed line internet must become free and a small percentage of tax should be levied for internet  irrespective of his or her social status.

MY LATEST POST - INGREDIENTS OF GOOD BEHAVIOR ON SPEAKING TREE.IN

After body growth at certain age, it is intellectual growth that matters a lot to humans. It is this growth that differentiates man to man. If you take care only bread and bed, nothing worthwhile could be achieved in life.

It is not material possessions that give ultimate satisfaction in life. It is spiritual growth that ends inner-conflicts and take you to what Abraham Maslow called Self Actualization. One sure way to the desired path is to strike a chord with life in whatever manner you find. To connect with life means, to nurture a well polished behaviour be it with humans or animal world. You must gauge your behaviour at every moment to grow spiritually. click here to continue reading

WHAT ARE DAILY PRIVATE VICTORIES

I am in the habit of taking notes much before I started blogging in 2011.  This practice is being continued  for the last 25 years.

When I dig such notes , I find very interesting stuff to share with netizens.

Here I am discussing what a Private Victory means.  In fact this concept is coined by Stephen R. Covey, one of  the  leading personality development gurus of West. Based on his principles, I drew my own blueprint for my personal growth.  

Here is the cheat-sheet :

Physical :  Eating right kinds of foods.
                  Getting sufficient rest & relaxation.
                  Exercising on a regular basis -  Endurance (Aerobic exercise : walking, running)
                                                                Flexibility (stretching)
                                                                Strength -(push ups and sit ups)

Mental :    Reading, Writing, Limit watching TV around 7 hrs per week.

Spiritual :  Meditation, Serve others.

MY NEW BLOG : KNOWEB QUOTE

My Blog Knoweb Quote

My blogging journey in 2015 is so encouraging. In 2014 I created a spiritual blog called Wisdom Everest    which is doing pretty well.

To create a blog exclusively for quotes is long over due.  The reason is the kind and combination  of power quotes I see on internet are not inspiring to me and over the years I collected huge number of quotes and Knoweb Quote Blog posts such quotes from my personal collection with wikipedia links to relevant authors.

Reading  one line or two power quote doesn't take much time but gives a instant boost to  our  system. So friends, please visit this blog to strengthen your muscles !

HERE IS INTERNET'S LIVE STATS

Internet is pretty interesting thing.  On the face it, you can't see it as a whole.  It is just like a spider's web.  The more you go deep, the deeper is it's depth.

The  geeks know this fact very well.  

When it comes to internet, statistics speaks louder than what you see on  computer monitor when surfing internet.   Whenever, I check my blog's Alexa Rank,  I get myself consoled with the statistics this website provides. 

At the time of writing this post, the total number of websites on internet  are 92 crores plus.  This is the power of digital revolution and a computer literate is always on advantageous position !

MY BLOG IN MAJOR SEARCH ENGINES

Knoweb in 2007 now in archive.org - Internet's Wayback Machine
The idea to name my blog as KNOWEB which is acronym for Knowledge Web came way back in 2007 when I was on grabbing mode  to store all my desired information from internet  into CDs for my edutainment.  

In those times, I thought of building  my own website or blog so that I could put all my downloaded stuff at one place  for the benefit of like-minded people.  In those days, I didn't know much about  infringement of copyright  when I collect from the  public domain.

WORK IS WORSHIP TO HIM

If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare write a poetry.  He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.
                                                             -          Martin Luther King (Jr.)

The moment I sat for writing this article, my wife was reading  headlines from my vernacular Telugu daily which is our daily ritual in the morning.  But that  headline gave me a jolt :  A doctor who was supposed to act with caution,   forgot a blade in the patient's womb while performing a family planning operation.  The incident happened in the Mahabubnagar district of Telangana, India (courtesy: Eenadu dated  August, 31, 2015).

MEN OF STEEL - BOOK REVIEW


Men of Steel
Click here for details
Being creative means not to limit your potential with  past experience as a bar you set for yourself.   The ultimate lesson of creativity  is to recognize the need to act upon those strengths/ talents which would put you into next orbit.  Day after day when you are on this mindset and start working, the magic happens and success embraces you.

Books factor a lot to stir the creativity in you.  That’s why book reading should be nurtured to grow in life.  The book I am going to review in this edition is : Men of Steel.  It is a book based on one of the best known journalists Vir  Singhvi’s candid conversations with top Indian business leaders.  Published by Roli Books in 2007, this book peeps into unknown areas in the personal lives of India’s best business minds like Ratan Tata, Nandan Nilekani, Kumar Mangalam Birla, Sunil Bharati Mittal, Azim Premji etc.
