That’s when you make lemonade!

When no one comes to your aid
When you realize you are self made
When you ought to decide unsaid
That’s when you make lemonade.

When everyone bitches around you
When they are mostly aimed at you
When life gives lemons to you
That’s when you make lemonade.

When you wanna bury yourself
When you start loosing yourself
When you cry all by yourself
That’s when you make lemonade.

Getting to know Windows Presentation Foundation (or WPF)

Until now,we were making Console Applications (output coming up on the black console window). Now let’s move ahead and explore WPF (Windows presentation Foundation).

Create a project and you can see multiple files created by Visual Studio itself. You can see the file list in Solution Explorer.

In addition to C#, we will need to learn some XAML here. XAML is a markup language something similar to HTML. We will go to that later.

You will have the following files in addition to other files

MainWindow.xaml  (This is your interface which will have many wpf controls)

MainWindow.xaml.cs (This is where your code should be)

App.xaml

App.xaml.cs

Now you write your code.

Integrity, The right way

O_Said:   “We have our deadlines coming near

We must meet the timelines for sure

Let’s give all it takes and cut corners

Release the product with honor and earn some dollars”

[xxx_feels: Lets work with Integrity.  Avoid short term gain and long term pain] 

I_Said:   “This issue in hand is actually a mix

And it will surely need more time to fix

We don’t know the cause and its source

All we know is a probable work around”

[xxx_feels: Lets work with Integrity.  Avoid short term gain and long term pain] 

O_Said:   ” Put the patch or whatever that is

I don’t want to hear of a slip or a miss

Just stay mum so we don’t loss a dime

We will somehow handle it this time”

[xxx_feels: Lets work with Integrity.  Avoid short term gain and long term pain] 

I_Said: ” I do not agree and neither should any,

Generating money might matter to many

Reputation once lost can never recover,

No matter how you try, even if you try forever

[xxx_feels: Lets work with Integrity.  Avoid short term gain and long term pain] 

The Right way : Decision Taken in unity without integrity is guilty,

Corporate integrity is product of individual integrity

Integrity upturns the brand,

Dishonesty burns it to ground

All hands are required to make a Hero

But a single dishonesty can make it a Zero”

[xxx_feels: Lets work with Integrity.  Avoid short term gain and long term pain] 

The City of Doom

Standing on my terrace

I glance at the roads

All I see is traffic

Moving slower than a snail.

I look up at the skies

To catch a glimpse of it

Twinkle twinkle little star

All I see is a single star.

I walk a while on the terrace

My legs are covered in dust

My body sweats hell a lot

As the heat wave strikes me hard.

I open up the taps to cleanse

Myself, from the dust and sweat

Only a single drop drips from it

My body has more droplets though.

So hot and dry, so stagnant and busy

So noisy and dusty, a city that never sleeps

Is Bengaluru still the garden city?

Or has it become the City of Doom?
