LinkedIN – Quality V/s Quantity of Connections

Today, when we have nearly migrated from closed systems to open systems and still getting deep into it, there are still some aspects to be thought.

LinkedIN which is formally described as a business-oriented social networking service, has basically two school of thoughts, one believing in quality of circles and the later believing in “the more the better” philosophy.

So now, the question is simple, which is more beneficial, the debate has an infinite loop to answer, but still there are some common aspects to be thought about.

One’s quality of circle reflects one’s personality, and the posts always show up on your connection’s feeds. Hence it becomes important to showcase what you actually are; one is always being observed here, in one way or other. Also, if one has spammer connections the connections may get irritated by the spams as well. This becomes important when one has with lot of efforts developed quality connections, and obviously one would not like to compromise their reputation in front of them.


hey believe that high-quality relationships are more meaningful than a large number of relationships.

Those who believe in quantity of connections may have different reasons for the same.
For example we have seen many recruiters who believe in adding lot of potential Job Seekers so that next time they update about opening, they have CVs. But dear recruiters, why would you like to share information about your minutest details of past and present with a Job seeker, of-course they should only be concerned with the opening and method to apply, for that we have Naukri Recruiter( ) & Twitter & few more service providers offering similar features.

People following the later give importance to sharing information, so the idea is right, but can add more value if the medium is also right.

Adding value to the relationships is always the key, We have interacted with many senior level Persons, and a good number of them have chosen to deactivate their LinkedIN profile because of irrelevant information that comes. Why would a CEO or a Senior level person be interested by random puzzles or images that flow, LinkedIN is not facebook, or is it becoming by the way the quality of posts are being diluted this days.


There is not a hard core solution to this as this is not an exact problem, but just different views. We have open system around us and most of us are connected via multiple platforms, the key idea is to utilize the maximum out of each and by knowing the boundaries of each, and we can have a better and more open system with more benefits to more of us.


World Environment Day – The Irony!



Going by the definition, Wikipedia says – World Environment Day (WED) is celebrated every year on 5 June to raise global awareness to take positive environmental action to protect nature and the planet Earth.


So, we the so-called human beings wake up suddenly in the first week of June discussing plans for events with our colleagues at work, friends at society etc. Bang on, many events are celebrated that day.


Some Government Bodies / Corporate Companies / Schools / Formal Bodies arrange for distribution of saplings with their publicity and lot of media coverage is done, awesome it feels, but wait, there is a catch!


Last week when one of my colleagues brought a sapling happily from some distribution area on her way, wishing everyone Happy Environment Day & many more citizens did that making themselves feel that they did their bit.

BUT, what happens to those plans distributed? Unfortunately for 99.99% cases, the poor baby plant rests in dustbin.


So basically what we did,
We wanted to celebrate Environment Day & mere showoff ( maybe ) and some of us distributed baby plants , some took it for free, some made money out of it.

And mainly, we unplugged many plants with the hope to plug-in many new small ones, but unfortunately neither we could retain the existing blossoms nor could we plant the new one.

Probably some more plants were shredded that day in the name of planting new ones.

What a day it was to celebrate blossom of Mother Nature!


Let’s Not be Cold in this Cold!

Chilling cold has just began, and will prevail for sometime.We are all lucky enough to be cozy in our homes under warm blankets.Some of our pets are also lucky enough to enjoy the cozy warmth.BUT what about those unlucky street animals? They are dependent on destiny to shiver & shiver.


Today, Mom noticed a weak doggie shivering and trying to find warmth by the side of a cold wall.If we can’t provide shelter to them, atleast let us be of some warmth to them.All Mom did was placed an old warm cloth on the floor where the poor doggie was happy to find some warmth as compared to the cold biting floor.We offered him some food, but the poor baby was unable to eat due to shivering cold, & we placed another cloth above him & hurrah, he was happy under the warm shelter and the expressions can’t be expressed just by words! The satisfaction can’t be expressed in words!


By this medium, this is just a message, that if all families keep even some small pieces of old warm clothes like this, the poor animals would not be able to say thanks, but somewhere somehow, their eyes would say everything! We sometimes see but fail to act,It is a request to one & all, Let’s Not be Cold in this Cold!

The Sands of Time




Death.. a 5 letter word, is not as easy as it sounds. Sometimes its extremely difficult to write on topics like this, its more of rewinding thoughts then to just write on something.

Matamah ( Nani in Sanskrit, maternal Grandmother in English ) is the word which is lovely and is regarded with deep respect, somehow now brings lots of years in my eyes. The bond of 21 years, suddenly got changed in last June.

We as kids definitely share a special bond with our 3rd superior Generation, and the care we receive from our grandparents is immense and pure! I cherish infinite such memories of my Nani , but unfortunately those are only memories now.  I still remember the cute anger she showed when I used to say “Nani, I am going home “ and she used to say” Did you had food?” And If I said NO, my Mami ( Maternal Aunt ) was at high stake, God help her then! She was a brave lady, who unfortunately got many health problems during her last few years, she also went though 3-4 major operations silently, and to life’s destiny she lost her voice in last 3 years of her life, and handled all the pain silently in her heart and only her eyes could speak! But the way she used to hold my finger whenever I went close, gave a sense of deep connection and love still prevailing in her heart, Ah! How helpless we were!

We tried to get best of Doctors, but nothing worked, God has some other plans for her! May 2012 was a terrible month, when I lost my Nana ( Maternal Grandfather ) suddenly, and we were in deep shock. He went away fulfilling his words – “ I will silently go one day , without harassing you or making you spend a extra penny on me”. And he proved. He passed away before even the Doctor could reach the place!

Nani was on bed, she could not speak, but we could sense her emotional breakdown. Her health was deteriorating day after day, and any call from Mama’s ( Maternal Uncle’s ) place was like a bell of tension that hope all is fine! And the day was not too far, a month later , Saturday evening ( Luckily or Unluckily I was in Baroda ) a call came and a voice simply said-“Come Quickly”, that was my cousin sister’s voice, and I and my Mumma rushed without wasting a second. The Doctor came and her answer was “ Start Praying, Now nothing is in our hand” and that was second shock on the way. She was lying on bed, semi conscious and her throat making some sounds, adding to our fears, All puzzled and worried.

Somehow in such situations some angels do turn up, A elder lady in their flat came to visit us, and she sensed the situation, she guided to make her drink Pious Gangajal and A Tulsi Patra. And the tremendous mantras and prayers were on for her Moksha ( Heart Praying for her Miracle of her Well Being though! ) , We were all by her side, helpless, praying. My Mama was out of country for his job and he was intimated too, the fight against death was on, she was fighting like a brave lady and all we could do is pray & pray! Mumma was all shattered, somehow she was brave enough to make her passing away mother to hear the Pious 18th Adhyay ( Chapter ) of Bhagwad Geeta, and as it is said, that the one who hears the same in one’s last moments gets Moksha from wordly bondages, and so did she!

With the shivering tunes of Hare Rama, Hare Krishna she breathing slowed down, and ultimately the war was over, the death overcame the life! It was for the first time that I witnessed death, that too of a close one, and trust me that is such an awful moment,  I wonder what is the logic of our life and death, what a painful suburb it is.

All the rituals followed by, and lastly in absence of her son ( my Mama ) it was me on whose shoulder the responsibility of cremation and last rituals was showered, and ahh I wish I was there to witness that, Such painful moment, wherein we have to bid final good bye to our the reason of our very own existence. And the biggest moment, the final cremation, giving Agnidaah ( the pious fire to the body ) does not only gives fire to the body, but to our every molecule of the mind, our close one has left, leaving behind plethora of memories,  and cremation is not at all easy as it seems, it needs lots of guts and courage to perform.

On one hand you are supposed to religiously open the path of Moksha for your beloved, on the other hand you are seeing your beloved for the very last time, the hand which holded yours and taught you walking suddenly goes invisible ( giving lots of blessings )  and nothing stays apart from memories and memories.

Matamah – as the Pandit ( saint ) made me address her for the last few times, as part of some shoklas and rituals still echoes in amidst midnight sometimes in my ears, and after waking up the only thing comes to mind is that, now that hand is not there to hold and guide, that lap is not there to rest, but the bonding is there and prevails.

Life is strange, people come and people go, but its not as easy as it seems, people make huge impact on our lives and the bondage is too strong to be burned in fire. Rest in Peace Nani ! Miss you ! Hope your blessings are always there with us !       

Error 105 “Err Name Cannot Be Resolved.” : Solution

Error 105, was the only thing scrolling in my mind since past some days, the error was so erroneous that it almost lost my charm of surfing the net, almost this error popped in every 2-5 minutes of my browsing session and the connectivity was interrupted.

Nothing worked from company’s side, and now it was a matter to be resolved by self.

Even at this time Google also did not helped much [actually it helped in a different role – how ? mentioned below ]

Generally this error comes in wireless devices [ yes those false promising dongles like Reliance , Tata , MTS etc ] and most of time it is the temporary issue and primary trouble shooting like flushing DNS, clearing cookies , temp files, rebooting etc works well.

But many times it doesn’t. If you are facing this problem frequently and if the primary troubleshooting is not helping you out, nothing to worry, I.T magic can work wonders :D

The issue is not with the connectivity of internet but the DNS (The service which maps the domain name of the web URL to its IP Address) Hence what can be done in that case is to change the DNS Server of your connection (No programming or networking knowledge needed! Trust me)

Open up the dialer and rush to settings, all the companies provide with the Use DNS option ( which is by default disabled and hence the default DNS of the ISP is being used ).

Now all we need is a healthy DNS Server (that too free, right?

 Well YES! We have Google here for our rescue, Google provides free DNS for everyone and we can access it by and alternate DNS as (Enter it, Apply, Reboot & BINGO!! Problem Solved)

 I am happy, in fact much more than happy after using Google DNS , I even cannot specify my gratitude for Google in words for the same and everything.

Alternatively, some I.T people also suggest using OpenDNS for the same (But why not trust Google first ?? )

I tried finding many forums/ Blogs for the same problem, but could not find any, hence the first impression on my mind after successful compliance was to share it with everyone, I would be more than happy if any dis-satisfied customer like me gets his problem solved by the same.


There is nothing impossible in the world of information technology, all we need is little intelligence and some experiments.

Also please drop in your lines of precious comments.

Keep Smiling,

I Admire

People around, People surround,
In this world, which knows no bound.

We meet people, we greet people,
We talk with few, and more with few.

The way things start,At times depart,
People say, communication is an art.

At times we are in the same boat,
But feels like different pocket of the same coat.

Some people we see, we observe, we know,
But do we talk ? Perhaps NO.

At times we feel like having interactions,
But there prevails situational restrictions.

So what if we do not talk,
Or cherish a lonngggg walk.

A sense of bonding i feel,
which continues never ending zeal.

The way you smile, you act,
The way with you people react.

I am not your friend,
But perhaps without you there is a missing end.

The aura that marks your presence,
Has a unique essence.

No words, no talks so far,
But the bonding with you is above the bar.

Now stop thinking with crazy imagination,
I hereby dedicate my crazy Admiration.


Religion Discrimination : Why do We sow seeds ..?

Hello World :-)
Greetings !!

Actually the topic is : Regionalism” but i would rather not go into traditional debate of it..

Than what …?

There is a different approach :

We normally criticize regionalism & casteism & etc all kinda isms ( on a lighter note ),
& in fact we have taken many steps towards it, & i am proud to say that we are successful to some extent.

But unfortunately “SOME” in above line is really “SOME”.

coming straight to examples :

Social Sites :  Asking religious views

Exam forms / other Documents : Asking for the religion / caste ..

So whats wrong in that.?

On one side we want to eradicate completely the difference between human beings and want to follow “Universal Brotherhood “

And on the opposite side we are always creating a question in human’s mind that what is the caste / religion / language etc, isn’t the person being HUMAN suffices our purpose.? why do we want to ask for such details ?

Instead rather why not join our hands for a noble thought of
“UNIVERSAL BROTHERHOOD”& lets eradicate this roots of doubts & questions first & than the rest would be done ?

Many a times finding negativity in everything doesn’t mean that you are a negative person, it can also mean : you can see things getting perfect :)


Attitude V/s Aptitude : Career on Risk

Career , the moment one comes to the end of graduation, entire world seems hazy, i must commit, the toughest phase of life, where your Parents,Family, Society, etc are soaring eyes with you, Directly / Indirectly you are in Confusion / Pressure & questions keep whirling your mind, what to do? , how to do ? etc etc

Than there comes the System, the filteration, which claims at choosing the best from n number of aspirants who are dreaming and playing with the time of their life..

Ultimately the system primarily follows the chain :

Written Test > GD> PI > BINGO !!

Now My question is simple : Are they the sure shot judging criteria.?

Consider :

1- A person having extra good Management Skills practically , but just couldn’t perform that well in written test .. The Result is : dreams shattered ..!!

2-A person by mistake getting good score by just guessing or any such factor , result :good luck for him / her

3-Consider written test over, now its time for GD.. oops Group Discussion..

And it happens sometimes, rather many a times :

Good student under pressure keeps mum, and the free wanderer goes ON !!

4-PI round,

well it solely depends on the individual criteria,i guess its totally abstract.

Its an individual’s discretion that whether he/she asks what type of questions to you or finally concludes you as eligible / not-eligible.

Is everything GREEN here ..!! i guess NOT..!!

Can we change something..? Many a times NOT..

but things can be worked upon..? i guess YES.!!

I agree the statements which say that a management person is best judged under pressure & the management person should be having sound knowledge & reasoning,

But if it is the matter of someone’s future, some family’s future, or rather many families’s future : PLEASE RECONSIDER

something demands attention, something can be CHANGED..!!

Desire to WIN

A small observation on how to win this life..
It all came to my mind yesterday when i was having a glass of juice with  my friend.

The thought was an instinct..The same old juice vendor since years with his same old small infrastructure.. Now the thing which came into my mind was – “No doubt the juice that he sales,its rates keep on increasing yearly,or some duration like that, but in all his years, what have he gained.? what have he learned.? how much far did he wanted to go in life & finally, how much did life gave him..?

On materialistic note : yes his earning amounts were increasing, but simultaneously all over the inflation was increasing hence unfortunately his profits were on the same lines..

He has a good personality with a nice smiling nature, he also treats everyone nicely & maintains good relations with his all customers,& it is remarkable to quote that many of the customers he have, mostly all are regular & old ones.

But still something makes him lay back in life – the attitude.

Unless & until if one have the attitude to WIN, one cannot go much ahead in life. To this he very calmly replies that ” I am Happy, Satisfied,with whatever i have got.”But i strongly feel, that there must be incremental targets in your life,

if one is on stage x, one should  always be all set for stage x++

& once x++ is reached, one should aim for another ++

The purpose behind this is the growth :  of oneself, one’s family,one’s society,one’s nation.

Lot many people hide their failure in the name of Satisfaction.

There should be satisfaction, but with some flavor of dreams.

Even if one studies the success stories of successful people out there , one thing is distinctly common out there – dreams, attitude & target..

And, one more success mantra : consistency & persistence.

Dream  high, Strive for it, if you can fight till the end, my dear,YOU ARE THROUGH..

“It is not the size of the Dog,but the size of the fight of the Dog that matters”

And to conclude ( as i always believe & say ) : Sapne dekho,sapne sach hote hai…

Warm Regards,

Deep Bajaj


Original x Fake

Greetings of the new season to all of you out there..!!

As tittle suggests, the post is about being original x fake..!!

well it all started when a close friend of mine suggested me to change my attitude & as a result of which, things started coming in my mind, so thought why not to share it with you all..

A thought came to my mind that – “The one who loves you truly, never demands any alterations., a contradictory thought immediately pops-in saying “tho one cares for you truly, will always guide you if you are doing something wrong”…!! now to go which way..?

well the things is, at times people expect you to act in a particular way, the reference angle people take is mostly the self ( jesa me hu, me logo ko usi tarah dekhna chahunga wala attitude ) & that creates mess many times.

Individuality should be respected, each person has got his / her own +ve / -ve, & if we really care for the person, we would accept him the way he or she is..Ya i agree that one may be not be as good as you in some matter, but you cannot deny that one may be good in area in which you are not..!! Also, its individual discretion that whether one or one’s action is appropriate or not, because at the end of the day, it is the person & his virtues matter, not his jokes..!!

Moral of the story – Let the rose grow the way it is expected to be, if we remark that you got thorns & try to change it..we are drastically harming it & the nature, forgetting its beauty & fragnance ..!!

Warm Regards,

Deep Bajaj

Some Friends Are Forever..!!

I made this poem for my first ever true friend with whom i cherished a sweetest instance of friendship..

Perhaps we are now talking much, but the friendship prevails…                                               & god-willing we would be such friends back soon..!!

I still remember those days.

You, Me & packet of lays..

The way you used to smile.

Was better than oldest wine..

The way you used to care.

& say “Deep,don’t you dare”..

The way we talked all day long.

I wish that 8th std lasted lonnnng..

The way we used to fight.

& than waited to say sorry full night..

I didn’t know what things went wrong.

The talks became less & distances lonng..

But true friendship never die said a saint.

One day life would be colorful again with your friendhip-paint..

Earth is round,

Our friendship knows no bound..

I foresee those days.

You, Me & packet of lays..!!

“I will serve my old parents in the BEST way. I will say all good and kind words to my dear parents, no matter how they behave………

An 80 year old man was sitting on the sofa in his house along with his 45 years old highly educated son. Suddenly a crow perched on their window. The Father asked his Son, “What is this?”

The Son replied “It is a crow”.

After a few minutes, the Father asked his Son the 2nd time, “What is this?” The Son said “Father, I have just now told you “It’s a crow”.

After a little while, the old Father again asked his Son the 3rd time, What is this?”  At this time some expression of irritation was felt in the Son’s tone when he said to his Father with a rebuff. “It’s a crow, a crow”.  A little after, the Father again asked his Son the 4th time, “What is this?” This time the Son shouted at his Father, “Why do you keep asking me the saMe question again and again, although I have told you so many times ‘IT IS A CROW’.  Are you not able to understand this?”

A little later the Father went to his room and came back with an old tattered diary, which he had maintained since his Son was born. On opening a page, he asked his Son to read that page.

When the son read it, the following words were written in the diary :-

“Today my little son aged three was sitting with me on the sofa, when a crow was sitting on the window. My Son asked me 23 times what it was, and I replied to him all 23 tiMes that it was a Crow. I hugged him lovingly each time he asked me the same question again and again for 23 times.

I did not at all feel irritated I rather felt affection for my innocent child”.

While the little child asked him 23 times “What is this”, the Father had felt no irritation in replying to the same question all 23 times and when today the Father asked his Son the same question just 4 times, the Son felt irritated and annoyed.


If your parents attain old age, do not repulse them or look at them as a burden, but speak to them a gracious word, be cool, obedient, humble and kind to them. Be considerate to your parents. From today say this aloud, “I want to see my parents happy forever. They have cared for me ever since I was a little child. They have always showered their selfless love on me.

They crossed all mountains and valleys without seeing the storm and heat to make me a person presentable in the society today”.

Say a prayer to God,

“I will serve my old parents in the BEST way. I will say all good and kind words to my dear parents, no matter how they behave ……..


Small words for all mah BCA Teachers..!!

Rishte me to aapke students kehlate hai hum,
Par chavi mata-pita ki aapme dekh jate hai hum,,

Kabhi kuch achi-kuch buri batein keh jate hai hum,
Aap sang ek anutha rishta sajate hai hum,,

In teen salo ko yaado me lie yaha se chale jaenge hai hum,
Aapko hum mese kuch yaad aaenge jyada,kuch aaenge kum,,

Kehte hue ye sab,aaj aankhen hai nam,
Mila hai mauka to ek hi baat kehna chahte hai hum,,
Aapke aage humesha apne aapko natmastak pate hai hum…!!

I Sincerely,

Thank all my Teachers for all the support & love they bestowed on us <3
