Getting VISA

My father helped me greatly in collecting all the documents – against
all odds. The banks said a firm 'No-No' for the 50,000 loan for
airfare. I reached the breaking point several times – often I had said
to Ashwini, 'let me take this scholarship offer in September 2005
intake' several times. To my great luck, wherever I go, be it the
notary public or CA – they will say a sweet 'we-will-do-it' then, take
a leave and vanish out-of-station. PVA done in a week's time, after
sending medicals – I held my breath. Thank God, you didn't make a
final mess! I got VISA ;-)

After a month's time – I could not believe all those happened. Am I
really traveling out of the country? – Am I really going to study
abroad? I always imagined what if I ever get another chance to study –
it would be great as I know practically after working in the industry
for some time. Some of my friends say now, everything's settled, I
don't think so. I had to do a lot from now on. I have big plans and I
consider this as a small but important starting point. I have to make most of
it for myself and for everyone around me.

Every time one of my friends go abroad (from their office) – I would
go for the send-offs to Bangalore Airport – always thinking 'Mera
Number Kab Ayega?' (Is it correct, I don't know & don't like Hindi – I
consider watching a Hindi movie is the worst punishment a person can
undergo in this planet!). Even, I tried a resolution also that 'if I
ever visit Airport, it would be for my departure (to another
country)'. But, I had to visit again for two more times for receiving
some friends.

It will be an understatement if I say 'IDP has made a difference in my
life'. You have done more than that. I don't know how to express my
gratitude to all of you. I don't know how I can give back for those I
received. I would be happy to help you in anyway. Do mail me, casually
also. I will write these kind of mails whenever I get time.

Flickr Hacks:5 Tips get into "Flickr Explore" page!

As you know, Flickr uses an algorithm to choose the best 500 photos every day and post them on Flickr Explore page. This mesmerizing collection is done auto' magic 'ally by an "interestingness algorithm" which rates each photo how good it is. It does by considering lot of factors such as who views, who comments and who favourites a photo. It is not most views, most favourites or most comments. Here's what Flickr says: "There are lots of things that make a photo 'interesting' (or not) in the Flickr. Where the clickthroughs are coming from; who comments on it and when; who marks it as a favorite; its tags and many more things which are constantly changing. Interestingness changes over time, as more and more fantastic photos and stories are added to Flickr." As I tried to crack down this interestingness puzzle, I figured out certain shortcuts by which you can get to the Flickr Explore page. Get this basics straight . Favourites matter m
