Review for Narendra Modi: The Prime Minister of India!

The election results in India have been more than the expectations probably what BJP had as no had expected the BJP to cross 272 mark single handedly.

The general presumption was that NDA in its entirety would achieve simple majority. But the numbers coming up are showing a BJP standalone "seriously stable government" at the center in India. Which of-course is huge news comes with lots of happiness and questions on what strategies would Modi adopt in cleaning up the existing financial mess. The best part for Narendra Modi is he created a beautiful situation in which he doesn't need to rule according to the whims and fantasies of the allies

  1. The GDP growth is slowing down quicker.
  2. Inflation should be contained as soon as possible else the projected poor monsoon would for sure affect the crops and hence sore the inflation figures.
  3. Unemployment is on the rise.
  4. Subsidies extended by the Manmohan singh led UPA (or Sonia/Rahul led) government to the citizens is burning the treasuries to null.
  5. Foreign policies have caused bitter relationships with all the regional players and neighboring countries.
  6. Fiscal deficit needs to be contained with quick measures to attract FDI and hence help improve the financial health of the country. This would actually give Narendra Modi stronger hands to implement schemes which he would deem appropriate rather than sitting down idle with tied down hands.
  7. The Budget in the June 2014 should be a clear indicator of the things in pipeline.
  8. Tackle few the regional issues specific to few states.
  9. PAKISTAN: A great pain to tackle.
  10. Illegal immigration: another worry which he needs to approach more diplomatically.
  11. By showing some hard stances in solving the issues which India is facing today Narendra Modi would achieve the industry's confidence and raise his bar in the people's mind who are looking for desperate change in the way things are administered currently.
All the best @narendramodi !

How to clean copper utensils/articles

Copper items often hold on to the water marks if allowed to dry even for a small time frame of 10-15 minutes.

Here is the solution which could save you rigorous effort and time in cleaning and making your copper utensils shine again.
  •  
  •  You would require a some lemon, sugar and water. The quantity of each of these would be dependent on the number of copper articles you have to shine-up!
  • In this example we would consider we have two utensils which are of half litre size (water holding capacity).
  • Now squeeze the two lemons into a 600 ml water and ad little sugar probably a teaspoon. Now mix the contents well. 
  • Take a big enough plastic bowl to pour this solution (600 ml).
  • Now immerse the copper article into this solution and allow the citric acid to take effect for couple of hours. 
  • Voila! after couple of hours you would not believe your eyes looking at the utensil shining like new!
Now lemons are the key ingredient hence I would leave it to you to decide the quantity based on practical scenarios.

Using tamarind as well works but takes longer and more tamarind plus you would need to wipe using the tamarind the surface of copper so that you get the perfection in shine. Hence I did not recommend the tamarind method.

Review: Best Online HTML tutorials

As I was scrapping the web for finding good sites which offer good learning chapters for learning HTML and 'helper' languages like jscript, CSS etc. I found the following four to be exceptionally good.

1.W3 Schools (www.w3schools.com)

Offers courses or chapters in HTML, CSS, Javascript, SQL, PHP and JQuery. The site has good try it youself place where the person trying to learn something can see live results of his coding errors or for that matter coding successes.


http://www.w3schools.com/
www.w3schools.com
Try it youself

Separate section for references in each language type that you want to learn helps in looking back to see some of the basic things to know for achieving something ridiculously simple. :)

Apart from providing online courses they also do certification. Certification for each course would cost $95 but thats an optional part. Just in case you want to show off your skills to the world on your CV.

2. Code Academy (http://www.codecademy.com)

Another great resource for learning online. I found it very very inractive and makes learning fun. I bet you would give it a try once you are on the home page itself. The course is about HTML and CSS and goes step by step once you sign up. You get addicted to the course flow. So be careful and enjoy your course at codeacademy.com
