Why I write ?

10 days from now, the farewell season will start. Farewell, the word reminds me of my school days, and somehow it manages to generate the same very emotion for college as it did for school. Newton, for once, was very correct when he defined the first law. Everything tries to remain in the state it is in. As I write this today, all I know for sure is that life won't be the same after college.

I am still skeptic as to how life would be after I leave AIT. No same hostel, no same mess and neither the same friends. A new beginning perhaps. Its not that I fear changes, what I fear is the fact that life out there is very very fast, not that I am a snail, but I am no cheetah either and I fear mediocrity.
I, most certainly want this journey logged. And what better place than this? And what better time than now?
Today, for one was a really happening day. BE Sem1 results came, I completed my research paper for oxford and I almost completed my project, recruitment strategy for OSAC has been laid out and a friend today told me how much she trusts me (this makes me feel real good).

So I resolve today, to write everyday, to log every single day of my journey, however small it be, but it shalth be logged!

On working remote

The last company I worked for, did have an office space, but the code was all on Github, infra on AWS, we tracked issues over Asana and more or less each person had at least one project they could call "their own" (I had a bunch of them ;-)). This worked pretty well. And it gave me a feeling that working remote would not be very different from this. So when we started working on our own startup, we started with working from our homes. It looked great at first. I could now spend more time with Mom and could work at leisure. However, it is not as good as it looks like. At times it just feels you are busy without business, that you had been working, yet didn't achieve much. If you are evaluating working from home and are not sure of how to start, or you already do (then please review and add your views in comments) and feel like you were better off in the office, do read on. Remote work is great. But a physical office is better. So if you can, find yourself a co-working s

Capture and compare stdout in python unit tests

A recent fan of TDD, I set out to write tests for whatever comes my way. And there was one feature where the code would print messages to the console. Now - I had tests written for the API but I could not get my head around ways to capture these messages in my unittests. After some searching and some stroke of genius, here's how I accomplished capturing stdout.

I was fat once! Now I run!

On Aug 12, 2013 I weighed 107 kg, which, for a 5'4'' guy, is 47 kg more than the Indian Army standards. But today, I weigh 82 kg, and I continue to lose a few pounds every week! At one point of time, running 100 metres would make me all tired and sweaty, but today I can easily run 10 km at a stretch! So this guide is for all those couch potatoes who have lost all hopes of getting a good body! I was at that stage myself. I know how it feels like. I know the bullshit that you keep telling yourself as to how you are not all that bad, and how the world should accept you the way you are! Let me tell you this straight! You are NOT special. You are just another lazy bum who wants things to change but does not want to endure any suffering! Or even worse, you are one of those who act on an impulse every few months. You hit the gym for a week and boom!, you lose it all again. The first step is to accept that you have a pathetic body and that this needs to change! Start Sm
