One hour in the exam hall...

“I told you! You should’ve listened to yesterday’s result! What happened to you? You always trust in chance! And, it did tell you that you weren’t supposed to write the exam today.” (He was pointing to my usual simulated tossing whenever I get confused in…

Encoding multimedia into text!

Yesterday, I got to see a nice photograph of the (controversial) ball lightning. So, I immediately liked the photograph and felt like I should download it...

How I enjoyed watching #Interstellar?

A few months back, I wrote a review on “Gravity”. You know, it was a great experience. I did really enjoy watching it. All about space, satellites, orbits, stuff like that, along with some screw-ups like Sandra Bullock’s one-woman show, George Clooney’s…

I guess I’ve already told you about my aerodynamics professor when I talked about my new way of memorizing. But, that’s history. It happened during the last semester, it makes use of low speed flow. This time, it’s high speed! So, today we had our usual…

Reality sucks! (at least for me-like people who have their souls hard-wired into their laptops). That’s what the last 5 months taught me. Starting from the last semester, through the vacation (when nature betrayed me), all the way down to college, those…

The Indian general election 2014 is gonna happen tomorrow. I, as a citizen should participate in the voting day. As a matter of fact, this is my first vote. I (for various reasons) don’t wanna get back to my hometown (which is at the southern tip of the…

Today, I read an (old, but) interesting book on “Fibonacci Numbers” (only about 70 pages). It was mathematically intense most of the time, proving theorems and other boring stuff. But, the results were nice & fun to read. A few of my old questions were…

I know, it's been a long time since I blogged. I've been busy. Well nowadays, most of the time I'll be involved in physics & coding (sometimes, I do play games). But, I always feel guilty that ...

An alternative explanation to the gas turbine engine #aircraft...

Gas Turbine Engines! They’re the honeypots of any propulsion course. You’d need a book to cleverly explain the clockworks behind that thing! Because it’s much much more than what you think it is. It’s not just a machine that sucks-air, spits fuel, burns,…

A day in the #IIT atmosphere... #college

Yesterday, I got to pay a visit to IIT, Chennai. You do remember my first rant, don’t you? The lords of my state, students are racers, just memorizing the formulas and methods, so & so… Well, you should read it once. I’m sure it’ll be interesting… So,…

#python Blogging about my new #encryption #cipher

I feel kinda unlucky over the past two months. Diluted dialup, relocation, exams, I was constrained. Well, that explains why I wasn’t active for a while. Even after this disaster, this brain just can’t give up screwing the computer. I assaulted Python in…

Understanding Gradient and Divergence #calculus #math

I should’ve written this a while ago, when I understood the inner workings of this stuff. But well, I believe that it’s never late to teach something. So, here goes… I wasn’t aware of these stuff until lately… I rote-learned vector calculus during my…
