If only phones had these kind of security options! It think this year's batch of premium devices should include a remotely controlled miniature dye pack inside.

सबको मेरे भारतीय भाइयों और बहनों, दीवाली / दीपावली के शुभकानाएं !
Sabko mere bharateeya bhaiyon aur bahanon, Diwali / Deepavali ke shubhkaamnayen!
To all my Indian brothers and sisters, Happy Diwali / Deepavali!

Enjoy this Rajinikanth clip as you light your firecrackers and lamps. For those who don't know, Rajinikanth is the South Indian Chuck Norris.....in fact Chuck is even afraid of Rajini! 😀

May the lights of Diwali / Deepavali and your light within only shine on goodness in your life and scare away the evil in the world.

I attended the annual Festival of India this weekend and as usual had a ton of fun grooving to the music, watching the dancing and eating till I was stuffed! Here is a compilation of some of the fun this year.

The Eclipse of 2017 has come and gone, but even here in Virginia, it was still cool to watch.

+Shah Rukh Khan​ did a +TED​ talk! He's actually pretty funny, but his overall message is spot on. It's about 17 minutes long, but entertaining.

गूगल कीबोर्ड में नई सुविधाएं

I love Google's GBoard keyboard which I switched to after using +SwiftKey for so long. While it's had Hindi and Hinglish, it added a feature that it's stand-alone Indic Keyboard has which is the ability to type on an English keyboard and it transliterates into Devanagiri automatically (presumably other Indic languages too, but I only know Hindi). So now there is no need to have both keyboards installed unless you want the ability to draw in the words, which I've never found to be great. If I had to guess, they are retiring the stand-alone Indic Keyboard down the road since it makes no sense to develop both. If you are using the older Google Indic Keyboard on your +Android device, you might want to give GBoard a try. You will love it! ये अदभुत है!
