Tax on Internet usage ?

October 28, 2014

Hey, do you know that Hungary would impose tax on Internet usage!

I Repeat…. Under its draft 2015 tax bill submitted to parliament, Hungary’s government plans to impose a $0.62 or ₹38 tax on every gigabyte of data usage. At present, Hungary has tax levied on each minute of a phone call and every text message, with a monthly cap on the tax’s amount per customer. However The new tax, has no cap.

I think this is absurd way of Tax Practices. Situations in India and Hungary are ironic to each other, In India we still Starve for internet connectivity but Ironically In Hungary they are trying to tax internet.

No Body in this world has a right to tax internet, if that was the case, Sir Tim Berners Lee could have made Billions of dollars for himself (Imagine – He gave Concept of World wide web for free !!). Internet is Free and this freedom should be respected.

In favour of Your Passion

October 11, 2014

I failed by trying to make something big again, but since I decided to just stick to small prototypes and interesting challenges, I’ve had so much fun with work.

Notch – Creator of Minecraft on why he is leaving

This is a great lesson for anyone looking for a reboot and rekindling their passion for things they love.

I’m leaving Mojang
September 15th, 2014
I don’t see myself as a real game developer. I make games because it’s fun, and because I love games and I love to program, but I don’t make games with the intention of them becoming huge hits, and I don’t try to change the world. Minecraft certainly became a huge hit, and people are telling me it’s changed games. I never meant for it to do either. It’s certainly flattering, and to gradually get thrust into some kind of public spotlight is interesting.

A relatively long time ago, I decided to step down from Minecraft development. Jens was the perfect person to take over leading it, and I wanted to try to do new things. At first, I failed by trying to make something big again, but since I decided to just stick to small prototypes and interesting challenges, I’ve had so much fun with work. I wasn’t exactly sure how I fit into Mojang where people did actual work, but since people said I was important for the culture, I stayed.

I was at home with a bad cold a couple of weeks ago when the internet exploded with hate against me over some kind of EULA situation that I had nothing to do with. I was confused. I didn’t understand. I tweeted this in frustration. Later on, I watched the This is Phil Fish video on YouTube and started to realize I didn’t have the connection to my fans I thought I had. I’ve become a symbol. I don’t want to be a symbol, responsible for something huge that I don’t understand, that I don’t want to work on, that keeps coming back to me. I’m not an entrepreneur. I’m not a CEO. I’m a nerdy computer programmer who likes to have opinions on Twitter.

As soon as this deal is finalized, I will leave Mojang and go back to doing Ludum Dares and small web experiments. If I ever accidentally make something that seems to gain traction, I’ll probably abandon it immediately.

Considering the public image of me already is a bit skewed, I don’t expect to get away from negative comments by doing this, but at least now I won’t feel a responsibility to read them.

I’m aware this goes against a lot of what I’ve said in public. I have no good response to that. I’m also aware a lot of you were using me as a symbol of some perceived struggle. I’m not. I’m a person, and I’m right there struggling with you.

I love you. All of you. Thank you for turning Minecraft into what it has become, but there are too many of you, and I can’t be responsible for something this big. In one sense, it belongs to Microsoft now. In a much bigger sense, it’s belonged to all of you for a long time, and that will never change.

It’s not about the money. It’s about my sanity.

बाज़ीचा… Playground of Words

September 29, 2014


बच्चा जब तक बोलना नहीं सीखता
उसके अंदर कितने शब्द क़ैद में रहते हैं
फड़फड़ाते रहते हैं.. लेकिन बाहर नहीं निकलते

फिर वो सीख लेता है
शब्दों के छींटें दुनिया के मुँह पर मारना
और डरी हुई दुनिया उसे सिखा देती है
सधी हुई भाषा और थोड़ा सा तमाशा

उम्र बढ़ती जाती है
और शब्द या तो पालतू हो जाते हैं
या फिर हथकड़ियाँ लगाकर
सलाखों के पीछे पहुँचा दिए जाते हैं

और इसके बाद..
चीखें आत्मा से गले तक पहुंचती हैं…
लेकिन गले से निकलती नहीं
अंदर ही अंदर गूंजती है

बस एक दरवाज़ा खोलना है किसी दिन
सारे शब्द, मैदान में बच्चों की तरह खेलने लगेंगे

International version

When a child doesn’t know how to speak
There are so many words trying to come out
But they never get bail from the jail of our processes
Child first learns to say anything fearlessly
then he starts unlearning that originality
And finally gets trapped into stale procedures

In true sense
Words are either tamed by procedures
Or they are handcuffed deep inside our heart
Our Soul shouts out loud
But nothing comes out
Bail is still awaited
Everybody wants to open the door someday
All those handcuffed words would start playing
on that lush green ground

Om ऊँ : Digital paint video

August 11, 2014

जब नफ़रतों के, भ्रम के बादल छँट जाएँ
आँख की धूल हट जाए
और चाँद साफ़ दिखने लगे
तो समझो उसी दिन ईद है

EID Mubarak

Mutual Fund

July 15, 2014

कुछ तुझमें अटका है
कुछ मुझमें बाक़ी है
हमारा आधा आधा सूरज
हमारा आधा आधा चांद
जोड़कर सब लगा देते हैं
ये Mutual Fund है
थोड़ी आग जलाओ
बहुत ठंड है

International Version

Something stuck in you
Something left in me
My half and your half of Sun
My half and your half of full Moon
A little ice and fire
Let’s deposit everything
It’s a mutual fund

Solitude of a King : कभी कभी मिलने आया करो

July 6, 2014 2 Comments

सजी हुई बैठकों में
बहत दिनों से कोई सलवट नहीं आई

जागती हुई रातों में
बहुत दिनों से कोई करवट नहीं आई

घर के सामान के अब जोड़ दर्द करते है
बच्चे की तरह यहाँ जीवन फैलाया करो

यूं तो वो बादशाह है कई रियासतों का
फिर न जाने क्यों कहने लगा
कभी कभी मिलने आ जाया करो

International version

Although he is a king of a big state but
Suddenly he said
” Please visit this place sometimes
Come over to crash this silence
Come over to crumple this perfect sitting arrangement
Bless this aching furniture, crying with joint pain
Come like a child and run over my solitude “
