I was introduced to Debian Operating System back in my college days somewhere in the year 2003. After almost 12 years of using Debian, today I feel proud to say I ve also contributed back to the Debian Community. Yes, I became a Debian Maintainer this week. Introduced in Debian Project News as a New Contributor - https://www.debian.org/News/weekly/2015/06/ I successfully completed Debian New Maintainer process and officially became a Debian Maintainer this week with my GPG key included in the Debian Maintainer Keyring!
Like everyone in this world I was very tensed before I attempted it! I had varied feelings and the biggest question was, whether it is good or bad? right or wrong? That is the feeling we get usually when we do things for the first time. If it was something else, I wouldn't have had so many questions in my mind. But this is something related to life, relationships, health issues, etc ... Will I get health problems if I do this? Will it give me pleasure and satisfaction? What if, if everybody comes to know about this? Will they take it in the right sense? With too many confusions I went there.
The hospitality was good, I was received with a smile! Though I had fears deep within me, I just acted as if I am ok. I was scanned by a person from the opposite sex from top to bottom. I was asked the reason why am I doing this today? I gave satisfying answer I guess. I was given permission to get in.
This is something very personal and I want the world to know about what is happening in my life! I used to stare at women like these during my college days. Initially I thought they were very beautiful and I wanted to stay away from them. Though, as every man has an instinct to spend a life with such a kind of woman I had my thoughts deep inside me, to have someone like one of them. During college there was at least 10 women inside our college premises, with whom I used to hook around occasionally. After finishing college I used to have many chicks who were slim, beautiful (and you know what) with whom I ve spent a lot of time, but still I missed those kinda women in life.
This year on the special day that is February 25th I visted Prema Vasam which is a school for the specially abled located in Gerugambakkam near Porur in Chennai. I went to the school at around 4pm along with my brother Yogeshwaran and donated a small amount for the students of the school. I also managed to spend sometime in the school with children (I could not hold more than 30 minutes in the school, since I had mixed thoughts and want to leave after sometime).
Before I visited the school I had an impression that it is a very small school that holds 6 to 7 students, but reality was different when I went there. I was very upset that there were around 100+ students in the school. I was very happy about Prema Vasam's management which was able to handle all the students and they do it as a service. Folks in Prema Vasam should continue to do this good work in future too and my sincere support will always be there!
OpenShift is a very cool platform and I got attracted. I wanted to extend my experiment and wanted to onboard an application which I have written. I thought about some ideas which I could code in python and at the same time I can test various features of OpenShift, also I wanted to learn some new web framework in python during this experiment.
Today's date (25th February) is very special in my life for the past 2 years and it will continue to be like that till my end of life. This date for the past couple of years had given me happiness, satisfaction and a sense of achievement. This year is no exception to that and I decided to visit Spastics Society of TamilNadu (SPASTN) located at Taramani, Chennai. It was in 1996 I last visited this place for my project "Care for the Uncared" which I did in my 7th standard along with my friends for "National Children Science Congress". I was with the children for 3 full days and spent lot of time with them in "The Spastics School". Its been more than 15 years now and I visited today as a man with a good cause, it was really joyful to be in the School and speak with people who are closely associated with it. There was lot of changes in the School from my previous visit!
