Hello guys After Addiction, here is another one for you “Raid”. Though the name sounds negative but people think it must have happened for some good reason.

Isn’t it?

Only country exists in the world, where culture-food-language-customs changed every 100 KM is? Any guess??

Its India.

Now you may be wondering that what this has got to do with Raid? Come on we are the only country who mixes other language to ours and absorb the fun out of it.

Hint: Are yaar life ki to raid lagi pari hai!!

{Foreign reader contact your Indian friends for translation. Indians are found all over the world. Reputation is so good that many country citizens happily run food restaurants as Indian Restaurants}

Coming back to Raid: - why this negative sounding word is so pleasing to hear?

First thing first – It is because we always hear about this word in context to someone not related to us. At the same moment, we utilise that opportunity to sanitise ourselves of any wrong doing.

For Indian it is a handy word to describe all kind of mess happening in life in a single word. Surprise!! The amazing part is everyone interpret the meaning in exactly same way. Isn’t it cool!!

Best part of "Raid" is, it can be used irrespective of profession you are related to: -

Student: Yaar exam ki raid pari hai!

Friend to another friend: Yaar uski to uski girlfriend ne hi raid maar li! Waise banda mast hai.

Hostel friend: Yaar Dad ki raid parne wali hai! Kal milne aa rahe hai.

Teacher teaching tuition in early morning, Student says: Yaar sir ne to neend ki raid maar rakhi hai.

Hotel owner: Jaldi peeche ki gate se bhago, Police ne raid maara hai.

Businessmen: File hatao! Income Tax ki raid pari hai.

Minister: Breaking new: CBI raid at X minister official residence in early morning. {sounds like triple raid- neend & reputation included}

Indian Mummy: Freeze ke raid maar rakha hai ! aur haan bottle mein paani bher ke bhi rakho.

Addiction is one of the nomenclature which is found across in almost all human irrespective of any age.

Yes, we can argue the level and type of addiction based on age or profession of human.

courtesy: Internet

Few inspirational speakers also suggest that if one is struggling between good/bad addiction, should try converting their passion as addiction. It will turn out to be win-win situation.

We all agree to the fact that excess of anything is injurious to health & environment. This may be the reason why addiction sounds negative and relates commonly to bad things.

Based on above logic, passion signifies excess to anything but in good way, what do you think?

Hang on there exists further classification on how (much, not so, so & so) bad a bad addiction is. This is directly proportional to members and culture of a society.


What comes to your mind when you hear word “addiction”? Come on now it’s already in your mind!

I am sure its SMOKING as in elementary, we all ended up reading same text book of moral education irrespective of private or government school we studied in.

World takes smoking hazards very seriously, we can find warning on its packets, even they do not shy from displaying rotten lungs on packet. But kind enough to provide smoking zone everywhere (in corporate offices, airports to name few) so that one can happily get their lungs qualified to be put on packets. I honestly believe it is still better option than blatantly call for Ban. You know it hurts economy, job also life span to add. Hello Dear, it seems “Life-span” becomes victim in both of the cases.


Come on put in comment if it was not SMOKING as first thing in your mind!!!!

Let’s think of something good for this negative sounding word Addiction. Any guess??

WORKAHOLIC: How you feel about it in this category, I know obvious answer is COOL sorry let sound ultra-modern KOOoooL/KUL. This one help us to fit in company of both wise as well as trouble/challenger i.e. addictive. It adds weightage to your character and pride for addictive group to welcome you.

I am sure you will be disappointed that you wanted to read more but it has just finished. May be I love to write but not addictive to it.

DevOps – (Development and Operations) simplified

In this write-up, I have tried to analyses the silent features of DevOps and Will it leads to revolution in IT industry or will turn up another ‘so called’ process improvement on shelf.

The core feature which is attracting industry to give a thought for DevOps is about its basics which is based on professional principles that helps business unit’s smooth collaboration. This basic feature was developed with collaboration of multidisciplinary skill-set people who are comfortable with software development, infrastructure and configuration such as system admin, tester and coder.

The DevOps movement is still in its infancy, but its gathering pace - there are conferences, mailing lists, irc channels, blogs and people to get to know.

Courtesy of

Core concept at glance:-

·         It encourage the development of communication skills, understanding of the domain in which the software is being written, and, crucially, a sensitivity and passion for the underlying business, and for ensuring it succeeds.

·         The DevOps culture puts a focus on creating a fast and stable work flow through development and IT operations.  One main goal of DevOps is to deploy features into production quickly and to detect and correct problems when they occur, without disrupting other services.

·         It helps technical people feel empowered and capable of helping in all area. It infuses better reliability and availability, happier clients, faster time to market, and more time to focus the team's energy on core business rather than wasteful administration and firefighting.


DevOps is more of cultural shift in fast moving technology space where dependency and dark spot barrier can be minimized across the project life cycle since the goal of each individual in project is to deliver successful stable product to production. But at the same time it should not blur the identity of programmer as programmer, tester and deployment expert respectively. Operations people can learn development too, but again, nothing beats experience.

It is also important to keep in mind that you can’t force cultural change. It has to start from the bottom up, and it needs breathing room to grow.

It should not been seen as tool to save cost but more of easy, trustworthy flow of knowledge, helping hand across the teams. Using “DevOps” to save money by reducing staff will blow up in your face.

Habits worth considering!!

Habits are essential part of life! I am not sure of any technic to learn habits but what is certain is that “one's life changes, when his habits change.”

Let’s have a look at tiny habits that have potential to contribute to power of changing lives:-

Cultivate a 15 minutes writing habits:-
I know you be wondering what to write, I can remember well! That’s great but still get in this habit by writing, everything can be a starting point: air, water, food, shelter, body or its parts...May be start writing 5 things you are grateful for on daily basis. May be things you are grateful to your wife? If you can come up with 100, that's fine, but 1 is enough. If you can elaborate why you are grateful for that, that's fine, but focus on writing this one thing first. It should be a new thing every day

Try and do ONE of these two activities as fast and hard as you can for 60 seconds:
Sprint   :    A lung busting sprint I'm talking about for 60 seconds
Pushups  :   As many as you can.
If you do this PROPERLY well done. You should be in immense pain by the 60 seconds end.
Do you realise you've just experienced MORE pain in JUST 60 seconds than 95% of the people in your life you will ever meet?

Additional benefits of above activity are:-
High-intensity-training is the most effective fat burning, immune boosting.
Releases Dopa-mine into the brain - the bodies 'feel good chemical'
You will likely find you want to exercise longer - so you'll get healthier still
It'll increase your tolerance for pain - helps with sports, tattoos, exercise, and all else physical [Oops!! possibly Indian journalist can avoid this one]

Breathe correctly:
 Many people do not understand the impact breathing has on physiological and psychological well-being. Think about how shallow your breath becomes when you are stressed.
Most of us breathe into the upper chest, which is not the best way to breathe because it signals the body that we are under stress even when we are not. In turn, shallow breathing activates the sympathetic nervous system (the fight or flight response).
Instead, practice relaxed diaphragmatic breathing, which is a slow and calm movement of your diaphragm, not your upper chest. Diaphragmatic breathing stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which causes the brain to release endorphins which in turn reduces muscle tension and feelings of anxiety.
Deep breathing also oxygenates our blood which keeps our cells in an aerobic state, which then aids in fat loss and increases our energy.

Read books at least 30 minutes a day:-
Books not online contents please. The more you read, the better you write. Reading, especially in long form, can help you to develop your intellectual and deep understanding in a much better way than scanning a 5 minutes 'X way to do Y' kind of news.

Being strategically selfish sometimes.
By that I mean saying "No" to unreasonable requests, and prioritizing your own self-growth and personal development.
As you take care of yourself, your capacity to be a good person and take care of others as well will increase. I am personally confused where I fit to this point really.

Take 10,000 steps daily
"Sitting more than six hours a day greatly increases your risk of an early death. No matter how much you exercise, eat well, avoid smoking, or add other healthy habits, excessive sitting will cause problems."

Some lazy bone around say horse run and it dies in 17-20 years but tortoise leaves for 300 years, I hope you know now why for tortoise at least?
