You...Your Happiness...Your Love...Your Emotions...Your Relations...and Your Life...!!!

We are living in an era, where relations management is at its low. If the IT or ITES/BPO industry is promoting relations among the employees…the short duration of relations is also a gift of it. There are numerous cases wherein couples decided to separate within one year of marriage. Why so???

It is very easy to say, "I love you" to people around you but how many of us really understand the meaning, probably, no one. Recently, we had a hot debate on the effect looks/attractiveness in selection/rejection of candidate in interview, but, in fact looks (or I can say glamour) is also important in our personal relations. Asking a male to date an unattractive female is as much similar to asking a female to date a non-wealthy male.

Let me share with you that "I love you" is difficult to say (at least if you are not a flirt) and more difficult to understand. Every "I love you" is a promise, a commitment to stand by the person you love- whatever the odds, whatever the outcome, whatever the cost. Every "I love you" is a pact. A sworn oath to stick by each other, to be there for each other, no matter what personal sacrifice is necessary, and no matter what Consequences may befall. Every "I love you" has nothing to do with touches, or kisses, or sweet nothings whispered in an attentive ear." I love you" is more than all these things. It means loyalty and honor and trust without the expectation of the same in return.
There is a very famous quote in English,If you love someone, Set them free...If they comes back, they are yours,If they doesn't, they were never there to begin with
Most of my life I have been an outsider and yet I have learned from my experiences and others what true love is. The most purest love is unconditional love. You may be asking me what do I mean by unconditional love? When I say unconditional love, I mean no strings are attached. Perhaps, we should go more in-depth and explain what no strings attached means.
We will first go into explaining what unconditional love means. Unconditional means you will love a person no matter what happens between the two of you. A friendship is a good place to start. When I have asked many people what a friend is, I get many different answers.
A friend is someone you talk to once in a while.
A friend is someone I talk to on the phone all the time.
A friend is someone I do things with that has the same interests.
A true friend does not even match these definitions that people have said.
Now, I will explain the way I understand what a true friend is. A true friend is one who will treat another person like a human being all the time.
When you find a person like this in your life (male or female), that kind of friendship is so sacred and a very beautiful thing to have. That person will always be there for you no matter what the situation is, it is the purest love that two people can ever share.
There is another kind of pure love, but it is not as pure as two friend's love can be. It is also a beautiful thing and there are things that this love has that a friendship will never have. When two people after being friends for a long time, develop a new feeling where they want to get closer emotionally, they take the next step and become a part of each other. This is the third purest kind of love. There are no strings attached. It is totally unconditional because both people feel the same way. They are not trying to impress each other that they love one another because they both know how they are feeling. This is one of the purest loves that can happen.
Of course, they may feel a physical attraction towards another or not. That is not really relevant. The love is pure because there are no preconceived notions before hand. In other words, you are not out to make this girl or guy, your boyfriend/girlfriend.
Now the problem occurs when you are so close with the opposite gender as a friend that you decide that now would be a good time to get into a relationship and then realize things are not going so well. You try as hard as you can to make the relationship work, but you both fail miserably. Not only does your relationship fall apart, you are no longer friends. You realize too late that you should both never have gotten into a relationship. I have learned in my personal experiences, there is a strong intimacy that the opposite genders both feel when they get real close to each other.
In friendship, it can be quite powerful and very emotional. The problem occurs when this feeling of love that you have in your friendship becomes confused with being in love with that person. The best way to find out if both people feel the same way is to communicate and learn about each other as much as possible. You should know the person inside and out because if you do not and jump into a relationship, the chances are your relationship will not last very long and your friendship will be over.
The normal way most people go about getting into a relationship is being attracted to that person and perhaps emotionally attached. They proceed in making this person their boyfriend or girlfriend and yet they know very little about this person. The relationship continues and there is constant fighting. There is no communication. The man thinks he is right and the woman thinks she is right.
Meanwhile the relationship is getting worse. Ultimately, the two break up and both people feel they were used as either sexual objects or being used to give the man or woman status without caring that each of them are people. The ideal way of developing a good relationship is to learn more about the other person by communicating and getting to know what this person's ideals and values are. The worst thing you can do is have preconceived notions about a person you do not even know. You are searching for a needle in a haystack and the chance of your relationship not working is 99.
The most ideal relationship is marriage. A marriage is the second purest type of love two people can have for each other. The most ideal marriage is if you are friends already. You have both parts of the equation: the unconditional friendship and the love that no friendship can ever compare with. The problem occurs when two people start attaching strings to their significant other.
The marriage struggles because it is not unconditional any more. Each person feels they have to do things to show they love each other. When you love someone, you do it because you love them, not because you have to show you love them.Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there, to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or to help you figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be (possibly your roommate, neighbor, coworker, long lost friend, lover, or even a complete stranger), but when you lock eyes with them, you know at that very moment they will affect your life in some profound way.
And sometimes things happen to you that may seem horrible, painful, and unfair at first, but in reflection you find that without overcoming those obstacles you would have never realized your potential, strength, willpower, or heart.
If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive them, for they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious when you open your heart.If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because in a way, they are teaching you to love and how to open your heart and eyes to things.
Sometimes we may think that the person we love is the only one that is worth it for us. But I must say that having a broken heart is just a part of life, one that must be endured and overcome. However, it is pointless to stay that way. "Love" does not mean holding on to feelings and being "devoted" to someone you couldn't have anyway; it is wanting what's best for the other person, even if it means that you don't get what you want. That's not to say that the pain shouldn't exist, or that it will fade away just like that, but truelove desires the happiness of the one you love.
Life is very funny and interesting as well, as I mentioned ..........If we can realize these things beforehand, we can save that piece of our heart for someone else--someone who will share a life with us in a union so beautifully that we would cry tears of joy at the thought of it, as opposed to the tears of pain.
Letting go. It is difficult for us in so many ways and on so many levels. Yet life calls upon us to do it, over and over again. Letting go is part of our growth process. We cannot move on to the new while continuing to cling to the old.
Most importantly, if you LOVE someone tell him or her, for you never know what tomorrow may have in store.
Appreciate every moment and take from those moments everything that you possibly can for you may never be able to experience it again.Talk to people that you have never talked to before, and actually listen.Let yourself fall in love, break free, and set your sights high.Hold your head up because you have every right to.Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don't believe in yourself, it will be hard for others to believe in you.You can make of your life anything you wish.Create your own life and then go out and live it with absolutely no regrets.
That all, I can say…live your life…as it comes, live for your present…your future…not for your past. Enjoy your life…because this is a path…you will never walk again.
Looking forward to your comments.

Just Say, "I Love You" to Those Who Are...

Life is beautiful and lovable with the type of people we have around us. We talk about unconditional love, what is that? The way we love GOD…is unconditional love. Loving a person without expecting anything in return. But in today’s world, how many people understand this. Probably none. We hurt people, who care for us. We ignore their love. Every morning and every evening this person walks into our life and tells, "I LOVE YOU", "I LOVE YOU FOR WHAT YOU ARE AND AS YOU ARE". We never responds back and then one day they move out of our life.

Here are times in life...

When the person you will love, for the rest of your life, walks into your life.Sometimes, just sometimes... you hurt that person, you push them away. Not meaning to, But you do. Because you do this...you lose that person they walk away.At times...you are afraid, to go on, after this. But what choice do you have? All you can do...is hope that one day, if that person really was the one. You will meet again. And if, just by chance...you get that second chance, remember the past, learn from your mistakes, and never let them happen again.And by doing this...you will find out, that a lifetime of happiness awaits.

Just tell those people who are close to you and dear to you, that If kisses were water, I'd give you a sea;If hugs were leaves, I'd give you a tree;If spaces were love, I'd give eternity,And if you are true and sincere to me,I'll keep all my love just for you.You know the greatest pain in life is not to die, but to be ignored.--- To lose the person you love so much to another, who doesn't care at all. --- To have someone you care so much so as to throw a party... and not tell you about it. --- When your favorite person on earth neglects to invite you to his/her important days. --- To have people think that you don't care.

The greatest pain in life is not to die, but to be forgotten.--- To be left in the dust after another's great achievement. --- To never get a call from a friend, just saying "hi". --- When you show someone your innermost thoughts and they laugh in your face. --- For friends to always be too busy to console you when you need someone to lift your spirits. --- When it seems like the only person, who cares about you, is you. --- Life is full of pain, but does it ever get better?Will people ever care about each other, and make time for those who are in need? Each of us has a part to play in this great show we call life. Each of us has a duty to mankind to tell our friends we love them. If you do not care about your friends you will not be punished.

You will simply be ignored...forgotten...as you have done to others.

People say true friends must always hold hands, but true friends don't need to hold hands because they know the other hand will always be there. As it has been quoted by one lyrist in a Hindi Song:"Chaiye jo tumhe poore dil se, milta hai woh mushkil se;Aiesa jo koi kahin hai; bus wohhi sab se haseen hai;Us haath ko tum tham lo;Woh mehraban kal ho na ho"(If you have some one who loves you, cares for you…she/he is the best person of your life, hold his/her hand and don’t let it drift away.)

IMEI Forensics.. New Challenge Sending Msg to IMEI

What is an IMEI number and what can you do with it? At first sight not much, but still you IMEI number is not insignificant. On this page I will explain to you what an IMEI number is and what you can do with it.

IMEI is the abbreviation for International Mobile Equipment Identity. You can look at the IMEI number as the serial number of your cellular phone, just as in the serial number of cars, scooters and weapons. You can find this serial number at the following places:On a white tag with a barcode at the side of the original box of your cellular phone On a white sticker, often with barcode, underneath the battery By typing in *#06# in your cellular phone

An IMEI number always contains 15 numbers and it's unique for every cellular phone. Because of this the IMEI number is competent as the recognition point of your cellular phone. A cellular phone is a wanted object and therefore it's clever to registrate your IMEI number at the police, you provider or the insurance company (you often have to registrate your IMEI number to make sure your cellular phone is insuranced) and also at your home.


When your cellular phone is stolen the police can send a SMS bomb with the help of your IMEI number. This SMS bomb says: "This cellular phone is stolen, go to the police". Because of this bomb it's impossible for a thieve to sell this cellular phone because the client will notice that it's not safe to buy it.


Perhaps you will think that when another SIM-card is put into the stolen cellular phone the SMS bombing will stop. This isn't true. Next to the cellular telephone number (that's bound to the SIM-card) the telephone always emits an IMEI number with which the provider can see which telephone is calling. "A provider cannot only send an SMS to cellular phone numbers, but also to IMEI numbers". The IMEI number stays the same when another SIM-card is put into your cellular phone, therefore the IMEI number is a good security.

The drawback: Big criminals aren't frightened away by an IMEI number. You can assume that big criminals possess software with an IMEI calculator with which they can change the IMEI number into an IMEI number that's not on the black list. However, the basic rule is: The tougher you make it for a thieve, the better.

Conclusion

It is my opinion that mobile phones are great for activists and that their potential has not been fully realised yet. However, like all technology they carry risks for privacy and security, though nothing that cannot be dealt with by taking some simple precautions. Yes it can be a pain to follow them through all the time, but think about what you are trying to achieve in the long run. Like all security, the more you practise it, the more it becomes second nature as you practise it automatically.

The phone is a staple for modern society, companies and people simply cannot function without them. This makes the phone a fantastically useful target for the activist. So spend a little time and money getting it right and you can have hours upon hours of useful fun…....

This article is for information purposes only; its aim is to let people to know their mobile phone security.and above opinions are mine and mine only after thorough research on IMEI numbers.

More to Come........

Pact among Indian mobile firms

The technology to track down and render useless astolen or lost mobile handset exists in India but lack of cooperation amongmobile service providers is coming in the way of developing aninter-operator foolproof system.
Currently, it is possible with the inbuilt technology for a cellularoperator to deactivate not only the Sim card, the chip used to connect themobile phone to a network, but also the stolen or lost handset in hisnetwork.But if the person, who has either stolen the handset or has not returned itto the original owner, purchases a Sim card from another service providerand uses the instrument, the cellular operator cannot deactivate thehandset.

The process of tracking down a stolen or lost mobile handset is possiblewith the unique 15-digit code number that every handset has.It is called the IMEI or international mobile equipment identity that can beaccessed by keying in *#06# (star, hash, zero, six, hash) on the handset.All that a cell user has to do when the mobile is either stolen or lost isto inform the service provider.The Sim card can be immediately blocked to prevent misuse.

If the subscriberdecides to deactivate the handset, he or she would have to remember the IMEIand inform the service provider.When a mobile phone is switched on for the first time, the IMEI number istransmitted and checked against a database of "in use" or "deactivated"phones in the service provider network software called equipment identity register (EIR).

What Does EIR stands For
The Equipment Identity Register (EIR) is a database that contains a list of all valid mobile equipment on the network, where each mobile station is identified by its International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI). An IMEI is marked as invalid if it has been reported stolen or is not type approved. The Authentication Center is a protected database that stores a copy of the secret key stored in each subscriber's SIM card, which is used for authentication and ciphering of the radio channel.

All the 41 networks in India have this equipment and software. But,the fear of cross poaching is preventing cooperation among the cellularoperators.By sharing the EIR with other service providers, cellular operators apprehend that their rivals can make special offers to woo subscribers."Cooperation has produced some good results when the EIR was shared in Delhi between Bharti and (Hutchison) Essar. It was possible for them to check fraud like a subscriber not paying up thebill to one operator and shifting to the other service provider. But itseems an impossible task in other places There are definiteprocedures.

To deactivate or make the handset useless, the subscriber wouldhave to provide a copy of the complaint filed before the police.This is possible within network. But, it is not possible if the personwho is in possession of the handset purchases the Sim card of another service provider.""There has to be some cooperation among cellular operators particularly when there are issues of national security involved. Abroad, the cellular operator also provides the handset like Hutch and airtel have provided with simcards earlier . So it is not difficult to track down a lost or stolen instrument or deactivate it.

The curse of the secret question

It's happened to all of us: We sign up for some online account, choose a difficult-to-remember and hard-to-guess password, and are then presented with a "secret question" to answer. Twenty years ago, there was just one secret question: "What's your mother's maiden name?" Today, there are more: "What street did you grow up on?" "What's the name of your first pet?" "What's your favorite color?" And so on.

The point of all these questions is the same: a backup password. If you forget your password, the secret question can verify your identity so you can choose another password or have the site e-mail your current password to you. It's a great idea from a customer service perspective -- a user is less likely to forget his first pet's name than some random password -- but terrible for security. The answer to the secret question is much easier to guess than a good password, and the information is much more public. (I'll bet the name of my family's first pet is in some database somewhere.) And even worse, everybody seems to use the same series of secret questions.

The result is that the normal security protocol (passwords) falls back to a much less secure protocol (secret questions). And the security of the entire system suffers.

What can one do? My usual technique is to type a completely random answer -- I madly slap at my keyboard for a few seconds -- and then forget about it. This ensures that some attacker can't bypass my password and try to guess the answer to my secret question, but is pretty unpleasant if I forget my password. The one time this happened to me, I had to call the company to get my password and question reset. (Honestly, I don't remember how I authenticated myself to the customer service rep at the other end of the phone line.)

Which is maybe what should have happened in the first place. I like to think that if I forget my password, it should be really hard to gain access to my account. I want it to be so hard that an attacker can't possibly do it. I know this is a customer service issue, but it's a security issue too. And if the password is controlling access to something important -- like my bank account -- then the bypass mechanism should be harder, not easier.

Passwords have reached the end of their useful life. Today, they only work for low-security applications. The secret question is just one manifestation of that fact.

Nano Technology

Nanotechnology is the projected ability to make things from the bottom up, using techniques and tools that are being developed today to place every atom and molecule in a desired place. If this form of molecular engineering is achieved, which seems probable, it will result in a manufacturing revolution. It also has serious economic, social, environmental, and military implications.

Imagine a medical device that travels through the human body to seek out and destroy small clusters of cancerous cells before they can spread. Or a box no larger than a sugar cube that contains the entire contents of the Library of parliament. Or materials much lighter than steel that possess ten times as much strength.
