RAM upgradation

Recently, I have upgraded RAM in my new laptop from in-built 4GB to 8GB by using Amazon lightening deal for Transcend 4GB RAM; however, my experience was not really good.

The only good thing is that RAM is working fine and now my computer is showing 8GB RAM. However, the speed for newer RAM seems slow as its maximum CAS Latency is 9, while for pre-installed RAM it was CAS Latency of 11. Here is a screenshot showing details for current DDR3 RAM details.

Now my hp 15 ac082tx laptop runs faster with this piece of hardware. 😊

The Liberty of Attire

Some people classify me as male chauvinist, may be because I just resist myself to talk about Women or the issues relating to them, but this issue of imposing so called “decent” dress code for women in various Organizations across India is bugging me a lot. I wanted to express my views in this social concern.

Recently the child and women development department of Haryana has barred employees from wearing jeans and T-shirts, whatever may be the reason of this move, but I see this move clearly as an attack to Freedom of citizens. India might have got freedom more than 65 years ago, but the conservative thinking still exists even in metro cities and well educated households of our country.

Personally, I don’t like any dress code at any institution at any level. A dress code gives some sense of slavery. Someone’s dress describe much about person how like what should be the maturity level of the person. Dressing sense even effects people’s confidence. I feel confident when I am wearing a good looking dress (at least the dress, which I consider as good looking). Now, If my organization is putting some kind of restraint in the dress I am wearing this is clearly disrespect to right to freedom to express yourself.

Haryana Government decision may be a result of various rape attempts on women taking place near Gurgaon and other areas of Haryana, but this one is clearly not a solution. The root cause of increasing attempt to rape is certainly not how women dress. Its not the victim who wants to be victimized, its the attacker who wants to exploit victim. Action should be taken against attackers and not victims.

To this opinion of mine, one of my friend said, that to some level its the victims who are exciting the attackers to exploit them. He gave an example, that use of western dresses at work by women is like keeping your house open for burglaries, in this way allowing thieves to burgle the house. This opinion was certainly non-conservative but very practical. That guy actually made me speechless to take this argument to any further level. So, I need your opinion in this context. How we can reach an effective solution without affecting the basic Right to have freedom in a Free Republican country like India.

College Days…

Those days are gone, when I used to wake up at around 10 in morning, to get myself ready to visit NIT Market just as any other day to hang out with my friends. While the college started for me with a break of 10:20 in morning, it also ends with a lunch break, around 1:40. So, I was an Engineer just by attending 3 hours of lectures effectively. Well, I must say Engineering is easiest professional course ever. But the life actually starts sucking after you get out of an engineering college. You are now used to of the lethargic attitude of yourself, but industry demands the professionals to come on time, be punctual, be responsible for work they do. All these challenges look nothing more than corporate slavery to me. In my opinion an employee should be asked to work in flexible timings, flexible work environments and organizations should rather focus on delivery of work. Making the work environment more liberal, an employee can focus better on things such as quality delivery of product. Not making this post any more technical.., I just wanted to say. I miss my college days. And will always be imprinted in my memory.
