Whose fault was it?

Whose fault was it?

 

Toastmaster, fellow member and guests,

We would be punished, if we act against the Law. What would be the punishment if we act against the moral? As per Hindu religion, All Good and bad deeds are recorded and will be punished or awarded after death. There is a book named” Karuda Puran” which list the punishment for each moral crime.

Whether it is true or false, whether there is going to happen anything after death, these were created for good to make people afraid to not commit any mistakes morally.

I was very lucky grown up in Joint family and stayed with my grand parents.. My grand mother used to tell stories daily. In my school days, i always fight with my brother and often put all blame on him and complain about him to my parents and grand parents. One day I complained to my grandparent that my brother broke my pencil box. Thought I was not sure how it was broken.. My Grandma asked… How do you know about that? I said I guessed… that time my grandma told the story…

Once upon a time there lived a rich man who was very generous .He was so generous and he was donating all his wealth to poor people. People all over the world travel to him to get help. Seeing his popularity his  neighbor was very jealous about him.

One day 4 poor priest came to the person home from very distance. The rich man happily donated whatever things he can. Those priests were very very happy…  In those days, priest doesn’t eat food from other and they started preparing food. They were so tired and slept after preparing food. In that time a poisonous snake was passed. A hungry eagle saw the snake.. Immediately he flew very fast and cached the snake and flew again.. The poor Snake was trying to escape but could it.. Eagle was flying on top the ground where priest were sleeping. Suddenly, the poison from snake came and felt to the ground and directly into the food. The entire priest got up and without knowing this fact the priest eating food happily and after some time they all died. Believe me I literally cried after hearing this story. Let us stop the story now and give some brief introduction.

As per Hindu tradition.. We have thousands of Gods and Godess.. YAMA is the God of death. He is in charge of get back the man to hell or heave after death.It is believed that he has the record of all our good and bad things and person would be punished after death. His assistance name is ChitraGupth.  He is the incharge or recording all the Good and bad. Even we celebrate Chitra Gutha birthday to please him so that he write good about us. Citraguth was analyzing the killing of priest. Killing of priest is big sin and he is looking whose fault was that..  Do you know whose fault was that? Was it rich man fault, Snake fault or eagle fault?  He was so confused and he couldn’t come up with any decision and he asked his master YAMA.. Yama also didn’t’ know the answer. It seems they can’t close the case saying ‘no evidence’.. They have to find who is responsible of that sin.  Then Yama, the God of death said, ok we will decide later. Next day, another 3 poor people going to see rich man. aand they stoped and asked rich person address in his neighbour home. .The lady said showed the address after they passed she laughted amd  whispering to her husband

He killed 4 people yesterday and goingto kill another 2 today and they laughed. By seeing this God YAMA called his assistance ChitraGutha.. Chitraguth, Put all  the blance/sin on that lady account who incorrectly blame good person without knowing what was happened..

She deserved that punishment… After her death she was punished for this sin. That was the story and my grandma said don’t just guess and put blame anyone without knowing the fact. Believe me ,  I really got afraid after this story.. Everything when I was trying point someone, this story came to my mind

This tale provides a valuable lession – “Don’t blame anyone without knowing the fact”. Though these kind of fault is not punishable here but will be punished after death.

 

A pocket laboratory

Madam Toastmaster ,fellow members and guests,

Do you want to build your own computer in 2 minutes?

I am a computer programmer. My life  got  changed after i got introduced with computer. I love what I am doing in my work…Let me tell when I first touched computer..

I first touched computer when I joined my master in computer application. Till then, I didn’t get chance to touch computer. In my collage  we had single computer lab where all the student  should use. We hardly get 1 or 2 hours per week. I practiced programming in paper where I only get time to type and run in front of computer. There were no enough time to think in front of computer..I was thinking that time, how it would be if computer was cheap which I could afford. But it was not happened on that time.. Now it became reality my daughter..

I am going to introduce $35 , small wonder, little pocket laboratory . The name of this device is Raspberry Pi .. It is designed and manufacturer by RaspberryPI foundation , UK.  It is not something you can eat .. it is credit card size computer that can be used for what your desktop and laptop do such as word processing, spreadsheet  playing game, listening music and playing high definition video.. The Raspberry Pi is deliciously simple, but it’s still a tasty – and cheap

This little wonder can do many things, it also help advance in technology.

what can you do using this..The Raspberry Pi is a complete system—connect a USB keyboard/mouse and a DVI/HDMI monitor to it and you are ready to go! The Linux operating system kernel and the root file system have to be present on the SD card. It support various version of linux operating system..There are predinfed software installed using that you cna create your own game…etc..You can also use play video.. browse etc..

If you are not computer geek, still you can use this as Xbox Media Center”. You can connect into your TV and watch video, listing song, display photos, browse.. You can also control the operation using free smart phone remote..You just need to change the SD card to cover this into media center. If you want to try other operation system. You just need to spend 2/3 $ where you can install .. I have 10 different SD card for different OS…

You can convert this into video streamer and lively telecast the what your DOG and CAT doing to the world 24/7.  So the opportunity is limitless.

The main important  is , it helps children to learn programming and it cost is less even schools children can buy with their pocket money.. There is a program pre-installed is scratch which is designed for children. It is very easy to create game using that.. you just need to know who to solve the puzzles.

Why children need to learn early? Are they going to make money out of it?

I bought book on Java programming 15 years before, the name of the book is ” Mastering Java in 21 days”.. But i am still reading and not master at all.. So it should take at least 10 years or 10000 hours to master in any subject. So our kids should start learning from school so that they can do something productive when the go to job.

Some people think, they can’t learn or create programming.. but you may not know what you are good at until you tried once..

Unfortintley , computer literacy means just knowing how to use..but it should be how to do something creative with computer..

I want my Kids should be technology creator not just consumer.. I can’t give my $1000 laptop and screw driver to my daughter to do research.. but i can give this $35 chip to my daughter and she can do whatever she wants.. She can do something creative.. Even after some research if she burned this , i would be happy that she learned something and buy new one..

So are you ready to buy this small wonder?

I do believe, this is the best gift you can give for your loved ones.. Please feel free to contact me if you need moredetials.
