The first Contribution, GNOME & GSoC

Artist : anonymous

Well, why the ants ? Think teamwork, think team effort, interdependent efforts, voluntary involvement, the easy stuff, the hard stuff, the small and the large stuff, they all do it together, collectively and end up making what all of us call an ant-hill. A self sustaining ecosystem capable of supporting various ants, queen ant,the female workers, and male ants and the baby ants of-course. Who will in-turn help build a bigger ant-hill bootstrapped upon its previous design and so on into the future . . . .

Well enough said about ants ! You get where I am going !

This post is about how I came to contribute to an open-source project, got started on a journey I had been looking forward to since ever.

The Lovelorn Playlist

Artist : Roy Lichtenstein

Ever been a Lovelorn ? The first thing you wanted in the morning was not water or that morning pee but those three songs to get you through the day. Melodies which will calm your agitated heart and bring peace to your mind. Holy-Moly ! The first morning cigarettes with the artist whining away in the background, the best company you will ever find, ever get ! Feel good dear, No questions Asked !

Well when asked a little right away us all will have a different catalogue of what gets us through, what makes our soul sing, what it takes to iron out all the creases in our minds fabric and set things smooth and straight ! Cringe all you want ( PS: even i am ! ) but this is where you’ll come back darling.

Getting right to point here’s what gets me through the day –

  1. Bol Do Na Zara – Azhar| Armaan Malik
  2. Tera Ban Jaunga – Kabir Singh | Tulsi Kumar, Akhil Sachdeva
  3. Tera Chehra – Adnan Sami


feels good to be back

So, what does it take to make a person again ? What are we made up of ? Is it us totally, or little tiny pieces of everyone around us, everyone in the world ! Maybe thats why it’s said ” we rise by lifting others “
If you have heard gossip about me, maybe you saw this post coming 😂😂
As part of #blessingshared by @project_reachout family I am sharing these five pictures of the time and the things it took to turn me around into a different person !

Starting at a point where I found myself in a pit of criticism to the point where I look different, I live with friends, and above all am inching towards my dreams. A really crazy year is all it took, disrupting my life to do the things I hadn’t before, be it volunteering for the special, play in open-street fest, speak Kannada on stage, moving out, college marathon or looking different. I did it all.
To feel like you never have, you gotta do something you never have.
@project_reachout played a huge role in all this, by presenting to me some different facets of society, spreading happiness among those who needed it the most . I realised that we gotta do all we can, while we can, to value and to enjoy our beautiful lives !

I further nominate @vijayalakshmi_revur @monisha009
to continue this chain of posts about happy experiences !

Yes I complicate things !!

git diff

As simple as the above two words might sound, to all the computer and non-computer folks, all of us know that there is a limit to which you can complicate things . Well the thing pretty much speaks for itself ` diff ` what other than a difference would it indicate to.

Well it did to my idling curiosity : set theory !!
