    Y!Geocities is shutting down 

    October 26, 2009 – there will be no Geocities!

    Brings to me the memories, fond and otherwise, of extended well-past-mid-night sessions of setting up my “first free internet site”.

    Learning from MJ’s loss 

    I was at work, in a situation where I could not express shock or grief, when I first heard of MJ’s death. I just had to pretend as if it didn’t matter and conduct business as usual. Later that day, I walked jogged/walked 8 kms listening to Jackson for over an hour.

    Everyday since then, I played a few of his tracks and I guess it never sank into me that MJ really died. I didn’t rush to buy his albums, since I already had most of them – but I did make a mental note to myself to collect some of his videos. MJ danced as well as he sang and I need to have his videos to keep.

    In the last few days, some people told me how much they loved him and some people told me how they thought his acquittal on the lack of evidence didn’t prove anything. I didn’t know which side to take.

    Though I didn’t watch his funeral on TV today, many sites I read seem to be carrying news about his funeral.

    I guess I’m coming to understand that a state of denial wont last forever.

    I never cared to know or understand the legal things surrounding Michael, but I can say with certainty that I was a fan from the first track and I loved the music he made.

    The only thing I regret is that I never sent him fan mail, not even once. Not that it would have made a difference to him, but it would have made a huge difference to me. One thing I must learn from Michael’s loss, is to appreciate when I can.

      The link does not seem to be working but very interesting information. Thanks

    • GG 20:00 on September 22, 2006 Permalink

      Your link is not correct. It is pointing to http://nptel.iitm.ac.in//t_blank which does not exist. You have to remove the /t_blank part.

      Thanks for the news

      interesting information…

      just to put it here… IITs have earlier been producing video copies of their lectures and making it available to other institutes at nominal charges….

      but this is one unique step which will help everyone who has a net connection !! Institutional affiliations cease to matter!!

    What every Indian should know 

    There is an interesting provision in the Indian voting system, as per a 1969 act, in section “49-O” of code of conduct of elections.

    As per this, a person can go to the polling booth, confirm his identity, get his finger marked and convey the presiding election officer that he doesn’t want to vote for anyone!

    Now, why should anybody go to the polling booth and say “I DO NOT WANT TO VOTE FOR ANYBODY”?

    Simply because it can make a difference.

    “Not voting” and deciding to “not vote for anybody” are two different things as per the constitution.

    The decision to “not vote for anybody” prevents your vote from being misused. Also, it can alter the course of an election result even after a candidate has won a majority of votes.

    If the number of people using the “49 O” option is greater than the winning candidates vote margin, then the election results would be null and void. Not only that, the candidature of the contestant would be removed and they cannot recontest, since people had already expressed their decision on them.

    This way, if >50% people decide to use this option, then this means people do not have faith in any candidate who is contesting the election. The political parties would have to then either propose new candidates for the next elections who are acceptable to public or it may pave a way for new independent candidates.

    This would instill some fear inthe political parties who would look for genuine candidates for their parties for election. This could change the way of our whole political system.

    Showing your power expressing your desire not to vote for anybody is more powerful than voting , so don’t miss your chance.

    So either vote, or vote not to vote (vote 49-O) and you can do your share to improve India’s political system.

    For those who know Tamil, there is an article about this at http://www.keetru.com/ohpodu/Oh_Podu.pdf.

    Please pass the word on to everybody you know.

      49-O specifies that the voter can register as “Not willing to Vote” category.
      But it does not say that poll will be cancelled if the % of such voters are higher than any limit.

    • Krishnan 15:38 on August 31, 2006 Permalink

      The second page of the Tamil article I have posted does state that the poll will be cancelled. If you think about it logically, if the poll is not cancelled, a 49-O vote is practically useless other than being just a measure of dissatisfaction. But in reality, 49-O is a powerful tool that can influence the results. Check it out yourself from http://www.eci.gov.in.

      Well that is a good idea. However what would happen incase I vote for all on the ballot paper. Don’t I make my mark the same as the above and be further sure that it is registered as a null/void vote.

      You may execise your right of unwillingness to vote, but that could get manipulted with a bit of corrupt officials. However I do understand that corruption could end up in booth capturing too.
