Remember no one's perfect

Something that I have realized with time & thought that I should share it...specially to all the lovely females out there:

He’s not perfect. 
You aren't either, and the two of you will never be perfect. 
U can’t look for similarities in each other, then how would the other complete you. 
But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. 
He isn't going to quote poetry, he’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. 
Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect for more than he can give. 
Don’t analyze. 
Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. 
Love hard when there is love to be had. 
Feel him as a part of you, so that you could feel unconditional love towards him.
Before having any expectations, ask what you have done to have those expectations.
Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you.
With whom you can create a perfect moment.

Give me red… only Red Wine!

My love for Red Wine is no secret. I fell in love with Red Wine when I visited Grover Vineyard, which is 40 Km towards north of Bangalore.
You will find people with a lot of passion for wines visiting the winery. Visit to Vineyard is a whole day event, per head charge is 1000/- and trust me it’s totally worth it. We were taken around the vineyard, winery and at the end is the most interesting thing – Wine Tasting.
Few things that I learnt during the tour:
- Land on which cultivation of the grape is known as viticulture.
- We have around 40 varieties of grape
- Green/White grapes is used to make White Wine and red grapes for Red Wine
- Viticulture depends on factors like sunlight, soil, moisture, wind, and pest and disease control.
- The best wines result from warm, dry conditions.
- Red wines actually vary in color from dark pink to almost black.
- Red wine contains resveratrol, has a positive influence on the prevention of aging and the promotion of heart health.
-The color comes from a natural organic pigment called anthocyan that is present in the skin of red grapes and not from the juice of the grapes
The tour to Grover was perfect in every way and we enjoyed every minute of our time spent at the Vineyard. The Winemaker Tasting and Vineyard Tour was one of the best gifts I’ve ever received.
After going through the wine making process I have a new respect for grapes, although not all grapes. Wine is much more than just a drink. The more you read about it you realize that it represents so many other things, like culture & history.

I am so high about red wine is that the day when I have enough money I would love to have my own Vineyard.

Mobile Cloud Computing Keynote at NIT – Trichy & Hyderabad

It was my absolute honor to be invited as a Keynote speaker by NIT to talk to their PhD & MTech student’s about Mobile Cloud Computing at the Cloud Computing Conference.
Below are the slides that I presented during my keynote:
Last week travelling to Trichy & Hyderabad: visiting NIT campus, meeting the students & exchanging cloud computing research content with the PhD students & professors was an amazing experience.
Few research papers that were presented by the students:
One thing that I realized is that what these students & academies research & study and what the industry is working on…there is a huge gab. It’s time to work together bridge the gap and let the research just not be thesis but be a major input into the corporate innovations.
