The main reason behind my inertness towards posting new posts in this blog is two-fold. Firstly I was little bit busy with posting new stuffs in my other blog on JOB/CAMPUS placement. Secondly the CAMPUS placement season at all IITs have started from december 21st. Being a final yr student, I was also in need of a JOB. I was busy preparing for JOB during the whole winter vacation. And the effort put in the winter vacation give the best possible result that I can expect. I got JOB @ nVidia, Bangalore. So I am no more jobless (hahahah ....). Hopefully my posting speed in this blog will increase in near future. There are some very important lessons/observations I learned/made during searching stuffs for blogs, preparing for interviews and tests, and giving intreviews and tests. I am sharing those in the hope that it will be usefull to someone in-need.
  • There are few standard questions that are usually asked in the interviews, either in the crude forms or in the modified forms. I have seen one of my friend being asked the same questions in 3 different interviews (of different organizations). This phenomenon can be explained assuming the facts that the question-setters are proffesionals who are expert in some other domain, and are not interested/forced to set authentic questions.
  • So it is highly advisable to search in the net for interview questions, You can try in ur institute LAN p2p network to get those questions. No question should be left unprepared as those questions are equally probable to come in the exam.
Being a Electronics guy I have an idea of types of questions that usually come in EC/VLSI/EDA type of companies. If you are preparing for these types of company then here are some questions that might come in ur interviews
  • Basic Digital Logic, Logic Minimization, Implementaion of logic functions using NAND, NOR and MUXs, Different types of counters, questions of demultiplexer, circuits to find out number of ones in n-bit word, squaring circuits (for y = x^2)
  • FSM design, sequence detector
  • Divide by n (2,3,4,5 etc...) counters (both synchronous and asynchronous)
  • Divide by 3 counter with 50% duty cycle **TOUGH**
  • Divide by 1.5 or 2.5 counter **TOUGH**
  • Questions of setup and hold time, positive and negetive clock skew, jitters and its effect on them
  • Questions on Verilog, breaking and non-breaking assignments
  • Wheel rotation direction detector and its variants
  • Questions on CMOS logic, Pass transistor logic, SRAM, more can be found out at
  • Data structure: Queues, Stack, Lined list, Doubly Linked lists
  • C++, Friend function, Virtual function, static data members and static functions and many more variants
  • Puzzles to Puzzles you
Many more such questions are compiled at my JOB related blogs at

Have you ever have a desire to experience the look and feel of a real Macintosh. But because of n number of reasons you have not been able to install and run it in ur own PC. Then iFizzle is for you. This site is one of the best/cool site I have ever visited in the net. Basically it is a flash-based interactive demonstartion of look and feel of Macintosh. And the background music is really cool. If you have 5 minutes free and flash is enabled in your computer (bad luck for lynx guyz... ) then this site is a must visit for you.

Indian Food are delicious and hot. And so is the demand of indian recipes. And blogs with main theme of Indian taste will obviously one of the most viewed Indian blogs. And the statistics at shows it in the way expected. So I decided to compile a list of Hot-delicious traditional Indian home cooking blogs and here is the list:- If you now any delicious-hot-indian-recipe and wants to add it in this list you are welcome. Feedbacks are equally welcome.

Recently there was a very famous sting operation being carried out by corbapost named Operation Duryodhan. This sting operation unearths 11 MPs of Indian Parliament taking bribes to table questions on Indian Parliament. A blogger named sivamvij was one of the member of the sting operation team. Amongst various question that were asked to be presented in the parliament, there was a very funny bogus question on bloggers, which obviously has created a lots of waves in indian blogosphere. Here is a post by ravikiran pointing to these stuffs.

The above post by ravikiran have created some slightly different questions/debates in indian blogosphere. Some of the very prominent indian blogger have started posting on the discussion that has started as the comments of the above post. The debates that comes out of those discussions and new posts are on the questions of effects of ibertarian philosophy, free market, Regularization and so on. Some of the posts on this issue can be found out at here, here and here.

Now let me put my points on these discussions. I call those stuffs the ultra-pure form of "Intellectual Masturbation". Consider a case of a monkey. Now our aim is to make this monkey enable to design next-generation rockets to reach alpha-centaury with 10*c speed (c being the speed of light) using some ground breaking unusual-craps. Now the question is what school should we send this monkey, to a government owned school, a private school (next stage question CBSE/ICSE etc etc ..). Now n number of prominent politicians are assembled in a room called eBlogosphere and were asked to give their suggestions. Being a politicians must be a wonderfull experience. You are asked to give ur suggestions you have heard once or twice in some meeting or seen it at some newpapaer or so on. And wonderfully you give 4 hour lecture on what we should do to achieve a speed of 10*c. And obviously 80%+ of the lecture will be what is ur party's propagenda.

Is it illogical to call these type of discussion "Intellectual Masturbation". I don't find anything wrong in calling these discussion so. Reforms, Red-tapism, Conservatism, on Communism, or Socialism are ways. They are never the means. The ultimate aim is to achieve the all-round development of ur nation. And to do it you need a strong sense of nation within not just you, but of the maximum citizen of that country.

Freedom has never been free. But it is almost always assumed to be free. And thats where the problem almost always has began. Freedom always comes with responsibilities, and freedom gives you the ways to do ur responsibilities. It never gives you freedom form not to fullfil ur responsibilities. Malayasia and Ghana are two countries who got independence in almost same period of the history and today you just can't compare these two nations. History has shown us that neither regulations nor free market is the solution to any problem. The solution lies in the vision and acute desire to accomplish those visions. Look at singapore. It has a very strong social regulatory system. If you don't belive it then I request you go and visit the country profile of singapore. Still it is considered as one of the best place to live. China is yet another example of successfull system in presense of communism. And what extra achievements have made the CIS countries or russia after so-called democratization. Now lets look at some of the big faliures of free markets. Sea the rise and falls of Argentina and Mexico's economy. What big they have achieved by a free market system.

Driving the economy of a country is very much like driving of a vehicle in a roads. The size of the vehicle being propotional to the complexity of its economy. Now there is a target and ur vision is to reach target. There are many paths to the target and away from the target. The methods like free market or regulations are similar to the amount of control u want to achieve. Now the achievement of target is not only dependent on the freedom of the system, but rather it is a complex matrix of n number of parameters like
  • The efficiency of ur system, How much efficient is ur governmental system is. What is the unit of delay of a given project (days, months, or year)
  • The infrastructure of ur system. What are ur infrastructure with which u want to accomplish ur task. Waht is ur literacy rate; what about functional literacy; how smooth are ur highways and so on
  • How smooth is ur road, the external factors
  • Are you moving in the right directions ???? Or in the direction of Somalia or DR Congo
  • And the driver, Has he is suffering from short-sighted ness (like most of Indian MPs)
Leaving behind these parameters, take any methods be it socialism, communism, liberty, Somalia or anything ......... You and destined to fall. So be carefull .....

Uncyclopedia is a content-free encyclopedia that anyone can edit. This site is clearly an epitome of how funny a whole web-site can get. Rather than describing it in my own words and threby reducing the fun part of it, let me quote the description of it as described in their overview section in their begiiner's guide.
Welcome to the Uncyclopedia! If you're here, you've probably found us through some blog, or other variety site, and have stumbled on to the Main Page with the intent of contributing to our giant mass of misinformation to add to the even larger mass of porn and other misinformation called the Internet. If not, then you've been sent here by an admin for an error in judgment or lack of sanity. Either way, we're glad you're here and reading this.
Here is yet another fraction of one of the post describing its purpose.

There are a couple of important pieces to note in this article

  • "Uncyclopedia is an encyclopedia full of misinformation and utter lies."
We are not wikipedia, but that should already have been plainly obvious. Fact is discouraged, comedy is paramount.
  • "The mission of Uncyclopedia is to provide the world's misinformation in the least redeeming and most searingly sarcastic and humourous way possible."
Humorous is the operative word here. While we say sarcasm is vaunted, we are not a dumping ground for pure propaganda, humourless nonsense, opinion, or flames.
  • "Try to be funny and not just stupid."
Stupid is not the same as funny. The next section illustrates this point exactly.

In essence, we are about parody. Parody is about making people laugh. Make people laugh. This is easily done by bearing the next section in mind when writing texty thingies about stuff.

Unlike Buddhism, Being a Good Uncyclopedian requires two Good things: Good Writing, and Good Behavior.

Here are some pure nonsense on its page on India. Here are some hilarious facts about India (Courtesy: Uncyclopedia)
  • Everyone in India is born computer genius superior to any other loser race on this planet (Mars). They all can do calculus before thay can speak, and thanks to Hinduism, even drinking urine increases their intellectual prowess
  • As India was too large, it was divided into pieces in 1907 to help the people to fight with each other in an organized way and pretend that their backwardness is not as important as their need to fight. There are probably 50 states, since that's how many former British colonies are supposed to have.
  • Indian religions have a rich tradition of innovative rituals. A tradition continued till the present day. As a part of recruiting people to their religions, the religious officials were under pressure from the saints to promote new ritual gimmicks. The louder and more aggressive the ritual the bigger the following.
  • The people of India used to be very civilized until they got bored of it. Then, some Europeans saw India and decided they wanted it. When the Queen heard them whine for it, she decided it was ok for them to have it if they would fight the French. Then, one very old bald man said that we must not fight for independence. That will confuse the British. This Reverse Psychology worked as the British got confused and left.

    Until the population of India exploded, India was a country where each person was allotted 5 square feet of space for living. Even as the government was waiting for the population to stop growing, it kept growing and exploded which led to lot of loans to develop infrastructure. As of January 1, 2001, the number of people in India exceeded the number of gods they prayed to. This led to a request for creation of more Gods, whose temples were constructed with the help of a loan of $20 million from the World Bank.

    The population explosion is the most lethal of a notorious pair of Indian weapons of mass destruction, the other being the “peaceful nuclear explosions” which replaced the bow-and-arrow with many tests being conducted from 1974 onward. The original Canadian-language documents which served as the basis for the first Indian atomic bombs may be viewed during tourist season at the Mahatma Gandhi memorial World Peace and Nuclear Explosions theme park in downtown New Cleveland.

And here is a even more sarcastic/funny jokes on indian sports/rioting
  • It is not sure which came first in india, Sport or Rioting. Most countrys just play sport so rioting become the national sport instead of Sport becoming the national riot(althoug it is still the national reason 2 riot). Although their is emerging evidence that rioting was conceived one day when a little girl at the criket (a game played all day outside in the midddle of summer for up to five days,WTF?)whos popsicle metled turned suicidal. Thus now everytime a cricket game is finished everyone must riot and burn down a stand. ,This also keeps the bigilion people in the country employed. Someone cuts you off in peak hour. Start a riot. Caught in a long cue?. Start a riot its un-indian not to start a riot.Pakistan is india's long time rival for rioting. A year long competition is held between the countrys called the kashmir cup.
It even has a mathematical formula to estimate population of india.

Indian Movies:-

Are movies made in Bollywood a province in southern Waziristan. Bollywood is said to the second biggest producer of films in universe right after Azerbaijan. Indian films are know for being in Hindi and having random and totally unrelated music video clips. These music video clips is the only way to show sex in these movies without getting Adult rating. Indian movie directors always try to get the worst actors possible to play the roles. The plots are usually revealed in the first 15 seconds. The speciality of these movies is that they are made ot last 4 hours.

In these 4 hours, any/all of the following will happen:

  • The heroine will get raped by the villain
  • The hero will be reduced to wearing nothing but short shorts and a torn, black west
  • The heroine will be made to dance in front of the villain's stooges
  • You will use whatever little of that brain you have and walk out of the cinema hall

India and Yahoo

If you are interested in meeting and indial wife, perhaps you should try Yahoo chat? Many indian women go on yahoo messenger in the hope of finding a spiffing young lad for their bedroom.

The male indians tend to ask odd questions. Its almost as if indians are too cheap to buy plane tickets to come find out about your land, so instead they will ask you what colour your underpants are and what brand of toothpaste you use via yahoo.

Beware, they will kick your dog!

Yep... I am getting busy yet again ... Might not be able to post new post that frequently as I was posting... The placement season has finally arived at IITs. So I have to prepare for that. Rather you can see my blog related to JOB/CAMPUS related infos @ another blog at The Nameless Blog
