Life Lessons from Noah’s Ark



  1.  Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark.
  2.  Stay fit. When you’re 600 years old, someone might ask you to do something REALLY big.
  3.  Don’t listen to critics, do what has to be done.
  4.  Build on high ground.
  5.  For safety’s sake, travel in pairs.
  6.  Two heads are better than one.
  7.  Speed isn’t always an advantage. The cheetahs were on board, but so were the snails.
  8.  If you can’t fight or flee, float!
  9.  Take care of your animals as if they were the last ones on earth.
  10.  Don’t forget that we’re all in the same boat.
  11.  When the doo-doo gets really deep, don’t sit there and complain shovel!!!
  12.  Stay below deck during the storm.
  13.  Remember that the ark was built by amateurs and the Titanic was built by professionals.
  14.  If you have to start over, have a friend by your side.
  15.  Remember that the woodpeckers INSIDE are often a…

Friendship Day Celebration 2014

August 3, 2014 – Wishing you all a Happy friendship day

For the first time in the history of my life I’ve planned to surprise my new friends with love. So yesterday itself I went to dreamworld and bought friendship bands.

The first band I tied to Trisha, our music school student in the past, who I met in dreamworld shop yesterday. I am surprised to see her after a long time. She came with her mom for shopping. I’m feeling happy that I got chance to tie my first friendship band to Trisha.


This pair of bands I tied to the lovely siblings Nikhil-Ananya in our music school. They got surprised and wished me friendship day. They both said, they are making a handmade bands for me and gonna tie them on both of my hands on the next class we meet. I’m so glad to hear that and I’m feeling loved.


This special one goes to a special person, my best friend, Didi and well-wisher, Deepa Gupta. I’m so glad that she accepted my friendship band with happiness. She said that she liked it and gonna keep it tied in her hands for at least 10 days. She also said that she liked it, when I tie friendship bands to many other kids who comes to our music school. Thank you Didi for your love and care for me.


This beautiful one goes to a one of my favourite and most silent student of our music school, Prachi Bharaktiya. I’m so happy when she wished back to me, happy friendship day.


And this one goes to one of the young best keyboard student of our school, Sai. Thankyou Sai for accepting my friendship band.

God . . . I thank you from my heart with love, for being my spiritual friend and making this day special.

~ with love

Does python have ‘private’ variables in classes?

“In java, we have been taught about public/private/protected variables”

“Why is that not required in python?”

For the same reason it’s not required in Java.

You’re free to use — or not use private and protected.

As a Python and Java programmer, I’ve found that private and protected are very, very important design concepts. But as a practical matter, in tens of thousands of lines of Java and Python, I’ve never actually used private or protected.

Why not?

Here’s my question “protected from whom?”

Other programmers on my team? They have the source. What does protected mean when they can change it?

Other programmers on other teams? They work for the same company. They can — with a phone call — get the source.

Clients? It’s work-for-hire programming (generally). The clients (generally) own the code.

So, who — precisely — am I protecting it from?

Right. The schizophrenic sociopath who refused to read the API comment blocks.

Well said!!

Stateless Mindset (article from zenhabits)

In programming, there is the concept of statelessness. It means that each request is treated anew, without memory of previous requests.

This is extremely limiting in some ways, but in another way it’s a great way to deal with a ton of requests.

Imagine if you as a person dealt with millions of requests a day from a thousand or so clients: if you had to keep track all those clients and the multiple requests they were making, it would drive you crazy. The burden of remembering would crush you.

This is what our lives are like. We are constantly holding information, frustration, ideas, tension, requests, needs, of a thousand different requests each day. Every email, every call, every text message, every open browser tab, every interaction with another person, every task we do … it all builds up in us until we are overloaded.

Imagine if you forgot all previous requests. Those interactions died, faded away into the aether.

Imagine if there wasn’t the weight of thousands of requests and interactions on your mind right now.

Imagine they were gone, and you had a blank slate.

What would this blank slate feel like?

What would it be like to deal with the next task, talk to the next person, walk to the next place, without anything weighing you down? Without anything pulling on your mind?

Just this task. Just this person. Just this action. Just this moment.

There would be nothing else, just this. It would be your entire universe. It would fill you up completely.

Then it would be gone.

And the next moment would be all there was. Then that would die too.

This is stateless.

Try letting go of all previous moments, right now. Try making the present moment all there is. When you feel a previous request or idea pulling at your attention, let it go.

This is the stateless practice. You’ll fail. Let that go too.

Start anew, with all the possibilities of emptiness.
