india longing

the first week back after india has been a long and a difficult one. the longing to see the folks and brothers has been enormous. i am not a very emotional guy when it comes to family. however the thought that i may not see these ppl for some time - my own people - my family. i have spent 21 years with them. not just parents: uncles, aunts, cousins, grandparents, brother.
like suri told me: friends are family you choose.
here are family you can choose.
if i had to choose a family, i will choose these people over and over again. the fallacies and the quirks are the things that make me love them more than ever.
the thought of seriously shifting back after a couple of years here is more serious now than ever. sure, you must be htinking, so says everyone else. i wonder if this is the time they say that.i think i seem to be coping with this worser than anyone else. though everyone must be feeling it me. like amarnath.
the sights and smells of india are intoxicating. as american as i can get in thinking , i am indian by birth and by right. i do not want to loose that right, feeling or that mentality. i dont give a damn if you care or not that i am an INDIAN.

Good programming practice

functionalizing programs in a neat hierarchical manner promotes good software engineering. But it has a price. A heavily functionalized program as compared to a montolithic program without functions makes potentially large numbers of function calls and these consume execution time on a computer's processor(s). so although monlithic programs may perform better, they are more dificult to program, test, debug, maintain and evolve.

return to the us

i have spent the last one month in india. i have thoroughly enjoyed all the sights and sounds of india. all the thrill and frill. i will be returning back by the next week and shud be in full wing back into my fgpa work. i am very sad abt this (leaving india - missing people here) but i have to do it. i can choose. but i am not shah rukh khan in swades. i cant afford to build a bulb and be happy. i need to prove more stuff before i can become a hero.
in other news, i bought a 2 piece suit here at life style. i shud pick it up from altering by tomm.
as for the excuse as to why my blogging and website dev has reduced, i think i have as good excuse as any. im in india and the primary audience for the blog is here, although i have heard good stuff being said about it always.
yeh jo des hai mera swades hain mera (this is the country i call home - roughly translated)
