Not good enough

Posted on Updated on

So, its summer again and I thought of trying my luck at getting a internship. I started my search (just like last winter) and over a period of a month,  wrote as many mails as I could ;).

Of all 3 responded for a telephonic conversation. The first one was the best where I had expectations (both from the employer and from myself) . I lived upon mine and performed all the tasks but as it turned out there were people better than me (thats what they told) . At the end of the day, I never got the opportunity. From then I got 2 more rejections.

And in the last interview it happened that I was exposed to questions (about technology stacks) that I never cared to know. Although I realized I had messed up the situation here as well but there were many positive points to consider. I will be working on them in the future to improve my knowledge base.

The same thing happened last winter as well but eventually I ended up with two internships. Thats because I was determined that I am good enough to be hired. I still believe but I need to focus more on my startup Geeklab. We will be soon starting operations.


hey there! its over

It has been a while since I last wrote a article all because of my laziness. Yeah, I have one hell of a person. But more of it later I am here to discuss something else.

In the year 2010 I had a breakup (a terrible one) and I was lucky to get out of it with flying colors. Today its almost close to 4 years, all these days I was only trying to become a man who can bring my girl back. I was obsessed with her. To my luck she never tried contacting me, yeah a atypical scenario where the other person had already moved when you’re sulking in your sorrows. Believe me that was tough, very tough situation to handle.

What I realized today is that I had wasted my 4 years for a human bean who never cared if I was even alive or not. Yes, it was a mistake and I think I have suffered too much.

Its time to forgive the person who can never be a part of my life. And most importantly I forgive myself for letting myself suffer in the last 4 years.

We wont be young again. We wont love like crazies anymore.

Read a interesting tweet this morning, which surprisingly speaks logic of the real world.

We wont be young again. We wont love like crazies anymore.

It will primarily take me back to old days at school but I don’t mind. Yes the sentence is very true. (Gosh I have written these lines before.)

As we tend to grow into adults sense and understanding starts creeping in and that’s when all the fun part dies out. As teenagers we all must have experienced ( and done) things that given a chance we won’t (or atleast think twice before doing) do as adults. Yes, being a adult has its own advantages but who doesn’t love being reckless and carefree. I would love to revisit my teenagers days again 🙂 (and perhaps mend few things/relationships)

Yes, I badly miss some people who gave me dreams and were with me but life moves on.

I won’t be young again. I wont be able to love like crazies anymore.

Hovering in the past

Posted on Updated on

Over the past few days I have been sulking in with the old memories.

Sometimes the illusion of the past gives more satisfaction than the harsh realities of present. But sooner or later you have to get out of the bubble and come back to reality. Then the realization dawns upon you that there is no use remembering it.
Alas, it too late and you have instigated a series of chain reactions which will land you up in a depression state. Now, it will atleast take you couple of days (if you have experience) or more (if you are a total newbie) to get out of it.
Say, you feel better and out of the depression, now you think why were you even thinking of your past? Logical answer: never do that now, but as I said above sometimes the illusion are before beautiful.

You were with me even when you didn’t entered in my life.
You were the smell of a new blooming flower, every beautiful evening reminded me of your magic.

You were the dream behind my closed eyes. you were in every words spelled from my lips.

You were with me even when you didn’t entered my life.

you still are.


Reliving the past

Posted on

Last week was very interesting, ofcourse there was holi but I also reconnected to some of my old friends. Its always good to hear from old buddies, one of which was in my school since nursery. So, that was nice.

But that also brought back memories from the past, memories given by a person that no longer exists in my life. But it was good, they no longer haunt me.


In other news I donated blood today, second time !! yay. It felt good but the patient might not live longer, still I did what I could. Hospitals always have been a home for people in misery and pain. Although there are very few things that touch or instigate my emotions but seeing these people in pain, makes me weak. I thought I was immune to emotions but I guess I am not.

Recently I have been watching Dexter (Tv series) alot and have started making connections with the dual lives he cherishes. *smiles*





How to setup Mysql in fedora 19

Posted on Updated on

I had never interacted with Mysql databases before, coming from a nosql background this was going to be tough. Also because I didn’t found information collectively at one place.

So, this blog post will guide on installing Mysql on Fedora 19 and then running it as root.

Install Mysql (mariadb)

  • before going into the installation make sure you don’t have any previous version of mysql installed.

1. yum remove mysql-server

2. rm -rf var/lib/mysql

  • You can proceed with the installation process:

yum install mysql-server

  • This might take some time to complete.

configure mysql

  • once mysql is installed start the server:

1. systemctl start mysqld.service
2. /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation

  • For the second step you need to be in root. When prompted for password leave it blank(press enter) or enter your choice.
  • There will be some steps to secure your mysql server, answer them accordingly.
  • Once all the steps are complete, you can login as root, by typing:

mysql -u root -p

  • Enter the password when prompted.

How to launch AVD from Eclipse in Fedora 19

Image Posted on Updated on

In the previous blog post I had shown HOW TO Setup Android Development in Fedora 19
and I will assume you will have a AVD ready.

Now how to launch this from eclipse (which will be helpful while production codes for apps).

1. Start your eclipse (installed in the earlier blog), and see if you can find the two icons marked in Red below.


if these are present then you don’t have to worry about anything, if not follow the below mentioned steps.

2. Click Window>>Customize Perspective.


In the Toolbar visiblity select AndroidSDK and AVD Manager.

you are done.

Now AVDs are very slow, unless you have super fast computer with best(est) configuration [see this discussion] But if possess a android phone, you can test the apps on it.

For more information read this post. Testing apps on phone instead of AVD
