Pranayama is for Everyone

Prayanama benefits us in several ways. It regulates our body's processes, reduces stress, protects us from common respiratory issues, improves sleep and digestion and so on. It also makes one feel joyful. Learning Pranayama has two elements:

1. Some guidance from a practitioner who understands every human body is different
2. Regularity, regularity and regularity

The following instructions are to help you start your Pranayama journey.

Some simple instructions to follow for Pranayama in the morning:

Microsoft + Yahoo = Last Mughal (Moogle)?!

So the truth is finally out- world's largest software company has accepted defeat by almost saying - their index is better than mine. Microsoft wants the search and advertising capabilities of Yahoo, which essentially means an excellent products company is seeking to integrate the capabilities of a wonderful services company. Saul Hansell of NYT wonders likens it to taking two aircraft carriers and making a new one out of the spare parts. And mind you, two aircraft carriers of different make and flags. Will this work indeed.

The sad truth is that Yahoo is not just search or banner advertising. Its portfolio of services is amazingly diverse. In slightly curt business language, it is not a one trick pony.

Microsoft's letter to Yahoo's board is perhaps the politest communication one has heard from MSFT in last decade. Give me your crown jewels, I need them and I know you guys need money, else.. is a one line summary. So instead of frightening Google which is going beyong just web search and advertising, Microsoft has let the secret out- Rest of Yahoo can go to dogs, we want the search and banner advertising. Mr. Ballmer, this does not inspire any confidence of some real upcoming competition.

AH! you can't say that Microsoft isn't doing good here. I mean what Google is saying is that making any sense ? They are saying that microsoft is about monopoly and all they are not into innovation and they don't support openness...now if we ask the same question from google...then they won't have any answer for that.

They hold monopoly in search and online advertisement...how can that be any different from monopoly in OS ?

Microsoft is changing the way it works and I believe that if they can combine with Yahoo then certainly, it will be good for consumer only.

CRICKET:WHAT, BCCI DOES NOT EVEN HAVE A WEBSITE?!

All I wanted to know was BCCI's history, official version and looked up on the web. Unfortunately, I failed.In this age when class VII students(perhaps even younger kids do so) host their own websites, I was astonished that a search for BCCI official website on Google made me no wiser. Am I to believe that world’s richest cricket board does not know what a website is? Yes, I am talking about Board of Control for Cricket in India, the body that governs cricket in India.

ICC, or International Cricket Council, has its own official presence on the web. 'Poorer' boards such as Cricket Australia, England and Wales Cricket Board, New Zealand Cricket have their own websites, where they have variety of content pertaining to the game. Pakistan Cricket Board too has a website.

Is this not snootyness, or plain and simple disregard for public communication, that an organization that conducts the most popular sport in India does not feel the need for official content on the web(suppose I …

SearchCamp Chennai October Unconference, wow

I was at BlogCamp in September last year, and became a big fan of guys who were behind it. There is another event coming up coming October and this one sounds very promising too. SearchCamp is all about SEMs and SEOs, terms that are widely spoken about, but in my frank opinion, understood much lesser. SearchCamp on 6th & 7th October, (again an Unconference, wow) and promises to bridge that gap. I look forward to it, and hope to see you there.

No, Google is not distributing PR 9 as complimentary gifts here! See you there!!
