It is not the fault of the swines. Why blame the swines ?

Casting pearls before …..
Almost two months after I launched this campaign, and after trying my best, and contacting many learned people personally, I find that no one recognises the pearls lying before them. No one has cared to take notice, no one has cared to react or respond. It happened to Ramanujan, it happened to many other people like him, they were all guilty of casting pearls before animals who cannot recognise the pearls. Let us not blame the swines. The indifference continues.

In the meantime, 26 April 2020 is getting closer, relentlessly.

Wake up, at least now, and show that sometimes, even swines can recognise pearls.

Why was I not born in USA ?

einstein


Unlike many Indians today, I was never attracted by the lure of living in USA. That was till recently. It all changed when I was browsing the w-w-web and I came across the website of Princeton University Press. I took the time to look around all that they had on display and I discovered many gems which I would love to own. You can browse their publications, catalogues, titles, series, and blog. Some books also make available a pdf version of some chapters. The listings are searchable by subject, by title, by author name, by date. You also get to see the author’s biography and a short synopsis of the book/title. Now I know why they say, only the luckiest of the blessed enter Princeton. If you can’t visit Princeton, make Princeton come to your home. At least try to collect a book from this amazing publisher. Beg, borrow, steal, do anything, to own a piece of Princeton University (I prefer begging).

17-2019 Tying it up altogether

It feels nice to see all my blogs in one place. Here, we have :

  1. blogspot personal : http://partha-the-person.blogspot.com/
  2. blogspot academic : http://partha-the-prof.blogspot.com/
  3. social concerns : https://drpartha.wordpress.com/
  4. selfpress : https://drpartha.org.in/wp/#
  5. RSS Feeds (restricted access) : https://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/myfeeds

All this is part of my “reaching out” efforts.

I fact, you can keep yourself up-to-date with these tools.

There’s a lot I learn from all the above. I learn the principles behind new tools and techniques. I learn a lot about people’s attitudes and behaviour. I learn to recognise my real friends.

13-2019 Adding bells and whistles to selfpress

I am trying out some new tricks and tools everyday with my new blog site “selfpress” . Recently I added some “bells and whistles”:

  • Search
  • Visitor-counter
  • 2-factor authentication for admin (to discourage curious pranksters)
  • RSS feed (pull strategy)
  • email subscription (push strategy)

That is not all ! I will continue to explore and understand this tool. Inshallah.

1-2019 Welcome to my new blog “selfpress”

2019 starts with a new facility from me: this new blog

This is a self-hosted WordPress, located in my own web-space at drpartha.org.in . I have nicknamed it : selfpress

I have put my earlier blog on wordpress.com in hibernate (freeze) mode. Henceforth, all my brainwaves (almost) will be displayed here.

I will add more features, as I explore and learn this new tool.

Visit this blog often, and gain some good karma.
