after long time i am admiring you longer i have no reason why i never knew when i start to find reason, i stop thinking about you yeah, its not fair you are the first one who made me realize how bad i was you are also the one who made me realize how good i could be you were floating through your dear mountains i was waiting to touch you from the earth, i didn’t know, clouds could never reach earth but only rain, you look so divine when you were happily dancing through the mountains, you are the wonderful gift of god,. you are Joyfully Tender,. i always admire you from afar :)
i set an aim, cos i think achieving it makes me happy, a better future. i work for it, sometimes to many times sacrifice happiness in the process of achieving it. once achieving that aim, i set another higher goal. again i start to work for it, —> the cycle continues in its own dimensions.. -> After achieving one, am marching towards another,. so when i am happy at all ?! -> i realized yesterday, once i achieve one aim i will be happy for ~1to2min, i inform my family -> their happy expressions, the smiles, the laughs, the relief, thanking God -> all these,. this 1/2min to 1/2 day of happiness deserves years if sufferings and sacrifices :D

Case 2: NO (-ve -> +ve)
i set an aim, cos i think achieving it makes me happy, a better future. i work for it, sometimes to many times sacrifice happiness in the process of achieving it. At the end, i am not achieving it or on the process i think it is not the right aim for me. -> now, what makes me happy?! cos, there wont anything to celebrate ? -> i understood, its not the destination that keeps me happy, but the Pursuit :D the pursuit towards the target, not the target itself. if in this pursuit i reach the target i ll be happy, if am not reaching, i understand that target is not right for me, there is something else waiting for me, i will march towards it happily :D

PS: God’s love is like a circle, A circle big and round O.O And when you see a circle No ending can be found.. That’s how its with God’s love, Goes on eternally, Forever and forever more I know that God loves me.. <3 ^__^v :D
Pls chk this talk of Psychologist Meg Jay. It would really make you realize something very important, cos i did :D
here you go -»
Climbing your 20s is one of the simplest yet most transformative things you can do for work, for love, for your happiness, may be even for the world, this is not the opinion, this is the fact.
Every 20s something male or female deserves to hear this: so heres the idea worth spreading to every 20s something you know: “30 is not he new 20, so climb you adulthood, ge some identity capital, use you weak ties, pick your family. dont be defend by what you didnt know or didnt do, you are deciding your life right now. thank you” -Meg Jay :D

In the Neuron Basics section it was shown that the membrane potential is controlled by the inflow and outflow of ions. In fact, the triggering of the action potential is caused when neurotransmitters open passive transports allowing these ions to flow in or out of the neuron. This in turn changes the potential across the cell. This type of interaction can be modeled in an electrical equivalent circuit using a battery and a resistor. The battery represents the stored potential that is maintained by the sodium/potassium pumps, and the resistor (or conductor) represents the quantity of ions that are allowed to flow in or out of the cell. The more transports that are opened, the more ions flow. Or in other words, the resistance to flow for the ions is decreased, conductance is increased, by having more transports open. So the passive transports are basically just variable resistors. Figure 2 shows the equivalent electrical circuit for a neuron. In that circuit it can be seen that the K+ and Na+ transports are shown as variable resistors, and that the batteries associated with each are reversed. The reason for this is that the sodium is most concentrated outside the cell, and potassium is most concentrated inside the cell. This means that current that is generated from the potassium transports flow out of the cell and currents from sodium transports flow into the cell. However, the flow of current from the passive transports are not the only piece to the puzzle. Another important contributor to the electrical behavior of the cell is the charge separation that is maintained across the cell membrane. This separation of charge by an insulating material causes a capacitive affect on the cell.
Figure 1. RC Circuit and output voltage characteristics.
Figure 1 shows a simple RC circuit. If a voltage is applied to this circuit then the capacitor begins storing the electricity. Eventually it will reach its maximum storage capacity and simply stay there. Once the external voltage is removed however the capacitor then begins to discharge its stored power across the resistor until it has been fully discharged. The important thing to see here is that the voltage across the capacitor resists change. For example, if this circuit had only a resistor in it then as soon as the power was applied the voltage would change to its steady state value, and when removed it would then go to zero immediately. But the capacitor resists the change because it takes time for it to charge and discharge. Neurons also display this type of electrical behavior. Figure 2 shows the neural equivalent circuit with a capacitor that is in parallel with the other variable resistors to model this property.
made ppt in <1hr-sent 15min earlier-ran n caught bus at time (thanks to the bus drive who waited)-walked uphill-thanks to the water in my bag-been punctual-saw many encouraging sweet hearts-unexpected presentation infront of many-did good-cool Prof Adam CC-felt so comfortable and been my true self-i was daring,expressive myself with confidence spontaneously-had made humorous interactions-asked prof to question me-drawn and explained a basic neuro activity in white board-got very good for my answer from Prof-i was being myself after many days-positive-while returning back saw the sweet smiling sis at the reception desk who i met 4 days back-she smiled at me again-a perfect day-returned back with the sense of satisfaction which i didnt feel n think in last 3yrs-i heard ‘very good’ after 3 years.i really had an awesome time. understood ,i am in right path :) -10am

LavalU preselection interview-i did little well-will get the results in ~1 week - 11.35pm
Spoke to Amma-Naina and Anna-Anna said ‘one of the remarkable days in his life is today’-wats it i was surprised ”he puts nail polish to harshu pappa”-first time in his life he did this-thanks to pappa who brought nail polish to Anna and asked him to put it in her nails-told about the whole day events to anna-as always my dear bro appreciated me -12.25am
Awesome day is when I am being my best :) I told this to my bro and laughed ->
Hard days make my heart stronger :D
Thank you my cella kadavulae.. you are awesome always, you are the best always, my cella ammu kutty kadavul :) - 1.13am

Assignment 1: Offer an example of a technology (or of knowledge more broadly speaking) that illustrates the concept of “technological path”. Explain how your example illustrates the idea of the “technological path” as well as the closely related idea of the “lock-in effect”.
I see ‘Language’ as a technology developed by Homo sapiens (human beings) thousands of years ago. Because it satisfies the three part definition: the tangible physical structure - ‘the alphabets’, intangible knowledge - ‘the meaning’ it possess and the intangible social relation - ‘the community’ which preserves and develops it along civilizations.
The development of language is one major reason for all the advancement which brought us to this state on earth and space. It continuously helps in the evolution of intelligence through learning and reasoning. i.e., integrating information categorically from the past and projecting cleverly to the future. In other words, language hugely employed but LOCKED-IN the left hemisphere of brain, which is responsible for logical, analytical, systematic and scientific functioning. Its technological trajectory is fixed in utilizing the above functions without applying the right hemisphere which is responsible for holistic thought, intuition, creativity, art, music, etc. Language stunts other ways of communication to understand nature that other animals still do. For instance, telepathy and any non verbal understandings of other-selves. It also strengthened the attitude of division between countries/communities.
If language follows intertwined path than an unidirectional approach and thus works to balance right and left hemispheres, then human beings can never be the cause of destruction but only love and compassion through this technological advancement. Thank You :)
