Open Courseware Initiative

Notes??                          The most asked questions throughout my entire engineering life. Engineering books are quite expensive and some college teachers are hopeless. I don't say all my teachers are bad. I really respect my teachers for making me what I am and shaping my thinking and knowledge. But its true that occasionally we meet a teacher who has no idea what he is doing among learners. So notes make a big difference in studies. Well my career and education have become a joke as I am still not a recognized engineering graduate in Canada. So I will be giving my engineering exams again, for the third time. Hence, I can award myself the designation as the most experienced and trusted source on engineering course material .

                          I wanted to share these with all my friends and budding engineers who have the above question in mind. Truth Chariot will include various tutorials and that is not what this post is about. While studying for my engineering exa…

Lost Indian Culture - II

I did break some serious beliefs in my first post and this one will drill deeper and clean a few more. The concept here relates to culture and religion. Basically, there are eight religions in the world - four originated in the Gulf and the rest in India. Most religions present in the west originated in the gulf and are called western or Abrahamic religions.



                            The four religions originating in India are called Dharmic paths, as per Wikipedia. This is the most common mistake made by all Indians as no proper explanation is offered on what Dharma and Pantha are. Aptly, Indian religions should be called Panthas (Paths). However, that isn't the purpose of this post. Indians are believed to be very cultured and religious. Modern Indian citizens tend to think that religion divides, spreads exploitation and is fascist. But neither the religious, nor the self proclaimed secular know what our religions and culture teach us. Negligence to scriptures will lead to th…

Lost Indian Culture

"We should never forget our culture.", is something you would hear from a lot of people in India. During this conversation neither the speaker nor the listener gives a thought about "What is Indian Culture?"
A Wikipedia search on Indian Culture would define culture based on religions, spirituality, cuisine, arts, clothing , languages, literature,sports and popular media. However, this does not exactly fall in line with the subject. A closer look at the Wikipedia article would give two words - Aryan and Dravidian. There is widespread controversy as to whether - they are two different races, Aryans were immigrants and if Aryan is the name of a race. Practically, 80 % Indians(Aryan or Dravidian) have accepted the authority of Vedas and similar literature as their guide for life. So with this as the base, I will outline a couple of real Indian cultural practices and modern associated myths as follows:

The Home Project, by Yann Arthus - Bertrand

A fantastic yet realistic film revealing the consequences of human consumption. Evolution and development was never seen with such an angle. By angle, I mean philosophically as well as photographically. Kudos, to Yann Arthus-Bertrand for making a complete and enchanting documentary on the need for the green initiative and control on consumption.  A must see for every earth dweller:

The Washerman

I was just going through some washing machine descriptions at a website and came across this video. At first, I thought it might be an advertisement or a funny video. Comic videos are one of my favourites and urged me to take a look at this video.
                            The video features a man in his late fifties who humbly narrates to the crowd the importance of the first washing machine in his house. What followed next was a brilliant realization in the form of the most enjoyable presentation. Is it possible?  Well checkout for yourself:

The First Lightbender

“Light only travels in straight lines” said his teacher. Unsatisfied by the notion, it became of utmost importance to prove to that the statement is very unscientific and obviously untrue. Dr. Narinder Singh Kapany was the man who proved that light bends and can be bent on purpose, for which he is acknowledged as the ‘Father of Fibre Optics’.
