Mr.Kiruba Shankar - Entrepreneur Who Kindled My Entrepreneurship Interest !!!

Well, !!! Now i have decided to write about a person from whom i wish to learn a lot !!!
-----------------------------------------------------------

                     He is 
  Mr.Kiruba Shankar
I learnt, am learning and wish to learn Entrepreneurship        from                Mr.Kiruba Shankar

         I think you people would not have seen me blogging about him here before. This is my first time about Kiruba. When you enter my blog, you can see in many places about the word, Entrepreneurship. Actually i got a clear idea about Entrepreneurship from him. I wonder on his activities. I can say he loves to be an entrepreneur, and he loves to organize some big things and he often makes other people to turn around him. He is such a guy.
      
        He is the CEO of Business Blogging Pvt Ltd, a social media consultancy. He is the Founder Director of F5ive Technologies. Apart from these he is the Co-Founder of Knowledge Foundation, a non-profit organization. And he is the man behind Proto.in (Entrepreneruship event), BlogCamp, PodWorks, WikiCamp, BarCampChennai, MobileMonday Chennai, OpenCoffeeClub Chennai and the CC Salon. 


I follow him everywhere on the web, where ever i can... In Twitter, Facebook, his Website and other blogs related to him. And off course he is Man Behind TEDxChennai


When Did I know About Him/ How Did I Know About Him:
          I met him first in Kurukshetra 2010, An International Level Technical Symposium @ Anna University, Madras. He lectured in the Entrepreneurship workshop. The thing which i loved in his way of lecture is his UNCONFERENCING. He made the session live and lovely. He gave some sort of play there. He said NETWORKING is more and more important for any Entrepreneur. Off course I realized the same when i had chances to meet some entrepreneurs. He insisted us on developing our own website and blog with a personal domain. He asked for people who had email ids from their domain, like kiruba@kiruba.com or vivekanandan@vivekanandan.in. Unfortunately no one had like that. But I have started developing my website but that is Google Site. 


       Recently he went to South Africa for the CLT20 that is going on. He returned to India, last weekend and immediately, the next day he was busy in organizing the FACEBOOK DEVELOPER GARAGE. And an interesting fact is that, i came to know through his tweets, that he has decided for the next Facebook Developer Garage in the month of December before the end of FDG which was on last sunday. I wonder he is making each and everything more and more planned. I can write more and more about him... He has networked with people in all fields like Software, Business, Cricket, and even Actors and Actress. He is a good friend of Percussionist Sivamani (Drums Mani), Ganguly, Harsha Bogle, and Chinmaye (Singer/Actress/and so on). 


Podcast With Achievers:
      And forget to say about one of his beautiful works, that is PODCAST with Achievers. The concept behind this is interviewing some famous personalities of all fields and make it a podcast. You can trace them here, Kiruba.TV

And i have a video below for you from YouTube. Here, Kiruba Shankar emphasizes on the power of teamwork to make a TEDx conference a success.

   I am the greatest fan of him. To Kiruba: Sir, I really wonder at you.... I learnt how to be a sincere, punctual and a better human from my dad, P.Manokaran. I learnt and had crush on Software Technologies, through Bill Gates and I learnt, am learning and wish to learn Entrepreneurship from you, Mr.Kiruba Shankar.

Pulse Of The Tweeters - A Project by Ramanathan Narayanan

      One of the beautiful things Twitter has given us is TRENDING TOPICS... But many use that as a tool to increase their traffic even if they have no relevant content. So we get a lot of spams.... That might have disturbed a lot in your search. 
Ramanathan Narayanan




         When i was a searching for a way to get rid of that, i came to know about a wonderful project by Ramanathan Narayanan a Ph.D candidate in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Northwestern University. It was really a mind-blowing job by him. The project is to determine and filter the best twitters who are concerned with a particular trending topic. It was really cool.


His project actually finds the Pulse of the Tweeters .

Click the above link, you will know a lot about this guy...

Twitter's Explanation About 'onMouseOver' !!!

             If you are Twitter, then you must have known about the onMouseOver issue, which shook the Twitter.com. And later it was solved by Twitter. And off course, onMouseOver was the trending topic for three to four days at a stretch.

             Twitter has also explained about this incident, technically, in their official blog. It was explained that the issue was due to CROSS-SITE SCRIPTING (XSS). It is nothing but pasting a code from an untrusted website into another one. Here in Twitter, users submitted a JavaScript code as plain text into a Tweet that could be executed in the browser of other user. Actually it was early a month and Twitter discovered it and corrected them. But without their knowledge, a recent site update resurfaced it.

            And this helped a cool cracker to play on Twitter.com security. He worked on, and somehow managed to do so. Finally the onMouseOver occurred. And added to this, there was another problem in Twitter, some other guy who added another code that resulted in automated Retweets from other profiles. So users would have noticed some unknown retweets which was not made by them, in their profile. After all these explanations, Twitter apologized for the security issue.

Highlights of IE9 Beta - Microsoft's Latest Web Browser !!!

       I am currently experiencing the highlights of the Microsoft's latest web browser, Internet Explorer 9 Beta....


I have blogged here some of the screenshots of those highlights. Go here to experience about the IE9 browser.

Shot1:

In IE9, the address bar and search text box are binded together,.. When you hit ENTER with a url in that box, then you will be taken to that particular website. And when you hit ENTER with a phrase or word, then you are taken to the Bing, searching that particular phrase....


Shot2:
Another cool thing with this IE9 is, you can pin a tab to your Windows 7 taskbar, as you pin other desktop application. That is you can bookmark a website in your Windows 7 taskbar. Go here for a DEMO.

Shot3:

       You are disturbed while browsing only in rarecases. That is, when you download a file, the notification asking for a confirmation is at the bottom of your browser. And also notifications asking for your confirmation to save your password is also at the bottom of your browser.

Shot4:

You will notice from the above clips that your favorites and tools and preferences section are much better organized in the Microsoft's latest browser IE9....

Shot5:
The below are the screenshots showing how to pin a tab in the Windows 7 task bar.

Kal Raman, The Entrepreneur's Thorned Early Life !!!



           Rag-2-Riches !!!
A Real Slum Dog Millionaire !!!


A man from MANNARKOIL of Thirunelveli Dt, is now a renouned Entrepreneur in UNITED STATES!!!

Here is the rags to riches
story of an extremely talented boy from a small village in Tamil Nadu who has risen to be the chief executive officer of a company in Seattle, USA.
It is also the story of how Kalyana Raman Srinivasan, who was so indigent that he had to study under a streetlight, but then managed to score excellent marks, rose in life and became today's Kal Raman.
At every turn in his life, he took the difficult path and it turned out to be the right one and in the right direction. His rise to the top is more dramatic than a thriller. Today, he is a very successful entrepreneur and the founder-CEO of GlobalScholar.

Kalyana Raman Srinivasan To Kal Raman...

Difficult childhood:


       Kal Raman was born and brought up in a small village called Mannarakoil in Tirunelveli district of Tamil Nadu. It was a comfortable normal middle class life for him and his siblings as his father was a Tahasildar there.
But the sudden death of his father at the age of 45 changed everything overnight.
Kal was 15 then. "My mother got a pension of Rs 420 a month and you can imagine how tough it is to educate four children and feed five mouths with Rs 420?"
Hi life changed dramatically after his father's death. The family moved from the rented house to a hut that had no proper water supply or electricity. Kal Raman remembers, "All of us used to study under the streetlight and, thank god, the streetlights used to work those days! MGR (M G Ramachandran) was the chief minister then. We had to sell the plates to buy rice to eat and my mother used to give us rice in our hands. That bad was our situation."
But his mother, who had studied till the 8th standard, was very particular that her children studied. "All our relatives wanted my elder brother to stop studying and take up the small job offered by the government but my mother wanted him to continue studying."
"Then they wanted me to learn typewriting and shorthand so that I could get some job after the 10th  standard. But mother said, 'My children are going to get the best education I can offer. Education is our salvation.' She was my hero for her vision and she still is my hero."
What kept the family going? "We were sad but because we accepted our fate, we were at peace with whatever that happened to us. We knew our father would not come back to lift us up from poverty. We also knew our salvation was a long way away."
He didn't know why he used to tell his mother, "One day I will give you so much money that you will not know what to do with it!" Years later, he did exactly that!

First turning point in life:
Kal Raman believes that God played a hand in all the major turning points in his life. The first turning point in life was after his 12th standard. He got good marks in both the engineering and medicine entrance exams, and for engineering, he got admission at the Anna University in Chennai while for medicine, it was in the Tirunelveli Medical College.
"While going in the bus with my mother to join the medical college, I told her, "If I join for medicine here, the high probability is that my life may begin and end in Tirunelveli. I really want to see the world.' She agreed with my decision to go to Chennai and join Anna University and study Electrical Engineering and Electronics."
So, he stepped into a new world outside Tirunelveli, and that was Chennai. Though he had got merit scholarship and a lot of good people helped him pay the initial fee, the scholarship amount never used to reach him regularly or on time.
"The mess fee was Rs 250 a month and I used to be a defaulter in the mess at least six months in a year. Till you pay the mess fee, you cannot eat in the mess. So, I used to live on day scholars' lunch boxes and also use to fast. That is when I learnt to fast ! I must say a lot of friends helped me with money and food."
Scarcity of money was so bad that he had no money to buy food just before the final semester exams. When he gave his final semester exams, he had not eaten for a day-and-a-half. "After finishing the exam, I almost fainted."
The day after the exams came all the scholarship money that was due and it was around Rs 5,000. "So, I went home a rich man and that helped us repay some loans."

First job:
Like opting for Chennai and joining Anna University instead of a college in Tirunelveli, Kal Raman took another risk with his first job also. His first job was with Tata Consulting Engineers (TCE), and he had a choice of joining either Chennai or Mumbai.
Although he knew nobody in Mumbai, he chose the capital of Maharashtra.
He remembered the first day. "It was interesting. With bag and baggage, I went to the TCE office after taking a shower at the railway station as I had no money to go to any hotel. After the first introduction at the office, the manager noticed that I was wearing slippers to the office. He called me and said, "I don't care which college you are coming from but this is not acceptable. You should come in shoes tomorrow."
I said I couldn't come in shoes the next day and this the manager construed as arrogance. "How could you talk like this?" he asked me. I said, "Sir, it is not that I don't want to, but I can't afford to buy shoes. Only after I get my first pay cheque, can I buy shoes. Sir, I request you not to terminate my job because of this. I and my family need this job."
Shocked to hear the explanation, the manager asked, "Where are you staying?" and the reply was, "Dadar Railway Station."
So distressed was the manager to hear Kal speak that he immediately released a month's salary in advance and also arranged for him to be at his friend's place till he could find a place to stay.
"He bought me a pair of shoes and those were my first shoes. The next day, I sent Rs 1,500 from the advance to my mother."

From electrical engineering to programming:
Kal's rise in career was meteoric in a short span of time. Within a month, he got a chance to move to Bengaluru (then Bangalore) and also to programming.
Soon, he was in Chennai with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS). Within a few months, he was sent to Edinburgh, UK.
From Edinburgh, his next stop was the United States. In 1992, he went to the US as an entry level contractor with Wal-Mart. In two years, he was a director running a division.
When he left Wal-Mart after six years, he was a man running the information systems for the International Division of the retail giant.
In 1998, he joined drugstore.com Online Pharmacy as the chief information officer and in 2001 at the age of 30, he was the CEO of the company.
He was at the right place at the right time. "God was there at every step guiding me to take the right decisions. I was also willing to take risks and tread new paths," Kal says.

Starting GlobalScholar:
Philanthropist Mike Milken who had donated more than a billion dollars to education, wanted to use technology so that high quality education was accessible to ordinary people.
Milken convinced Kal to join him. That was the time Kal was building schools in his village for poor students.
In October 2007, GlobalScholar was launched targetting both teachers and students by acquiring four companies -- National Scholar (USA), Classof1 (India), Excelsior (USA), and Ex-Logica (USA) -- that were into education.
"Three months after the launch, I travelled all over the US, India, Singapore and China talking to teachers and companies and the public. I found that the only way to impact education was by impressing teachers. The biggest scarcity in the world is good teachers. We decided to help teachers with teaching practices and kids, learning practices."

Kal Raman decided to concentrate on the US market as the US is more advanced in using technology. "They are also willing to pay money for technology. At present, schools buy the material which can be used by teachers, students and parents."
Today, they have 200 people working for GlobalScholar in Chennai and 150 in the US. The study material is prepared in the Chennai office.
The company that was started with $50 million will have in excess of $32 million and will generate $5 million of profits. In 2008, the turnover of the company was Rs 40 crore (Rs 400 million) and in 2009, it was Rs 80 crore (Rs 800 million). In the current year it will be 150-160 crore (Rs 1.5-1.6 billion).
"GlobalScholar is growing at 200 per cent every year. We have 1,000 schools and 10 million students, which is one out of 10 kids in the US, using our study material. This is almost 18 per cent of the US population. We are the fastest growing education company in the US."
GlobalScholar will soon introduce a pilot project in India and China. In the course of all this, Kalyana Raman became Kal Raman. "The country gave me everything and took half my name."

Giving back to society:
Kal Raman is in India now for the Kumbhabhishekam of the temple at his village Mannarkoil. "It is taking place after 500 years. It is the culmination of two-and-a-half years of work. I have spent more than one and a half crore rupees (Rs 15 million) to renovate the temple and do the Kumbhabhishekam. More than anything else, I have given jobs to all my friends in the village who are masons and carpenters."
Other than this, he has also adopted all the orphanages around his village and he takes care of around 2,000 kids, some of whom are physically handicapped.
"I feel if I can educate these children, eventually we can make a difference in the society. We also help 100 children in their higher education. Around my village, everyone knows that if a kid who studies well cannot afford to pay fees, he has to only come to my house; his education will be taken care of."
"I do not do this as charity; its my responsibility. I am giving something back to the society that fed me, taught me, and took care of me and gave me hopes. "

Indo-Pak Express - Qureshi and Bopanna Team, Runners of US Open

Proud to see India and Pakistan join handed !!!
Bopanna and Qureshi, Indo-Pak Express made some best things, for the India Pakistan relationship.
          I really feel proud of these guys, who proved themselves in US. Bopanna and Qureshi were very open hearted to join and reach finals of US Open. Finally they lifted the Runners Up trophy with proud feeling. Important highlight in the match is that, Hardeep Singh Puri of India, and Abdullah Hussain Haroon of Pakistan, who were the UNITED NATIONS Ambassadors of their homelands were sitting together and cheering the Indo-Pak team...

         Our Indo-Pak Express team lost the finals (7-6), (7-6) to the Bryan Brothers of USA. Bopanna and Qureshi had bested the Bryans for the first time last month at Washington in their most recent prior meeting, the only loss the Bryans have suffered in 20 matches since Wimbledon.

“It was a great tournament for us and we played some great tennis and Bob and Mike proved why they are the best in the world. Hoepfully, we will play much better against them again. I thank the crowd and the people of New York for their support and it was a wonderful week for us here,” 
 said Bopanna, who also thanked his parents who flew in from India to watch the final.

 Qureshi too echoed his sentiments and added a political statement.
 “We Pakistanis are peace-loving people and don't think of us as terrorists.” He regretted that he could not give his sister a birthday present, which she deserved today.
He also thanked the Bryans for making a contribution to flood victims in Pakistan.

Bob Bryan also paid rich compliments to the Indo-Pak team, saying 
“these guys are going to be around for a long time, knocking at doors of more Slam finals.”
Bopanna said both he and Qureshi were thankful to the two dignitaries for turning up at the match.

"I mean we are just thankful they came out for us, they encouraged us and were very appreciative towards our efforts, they took time out to watch us and they sat together and cheered for us which is great, unfortunately we couldn't win," said the Indian Davis Cupper.  
Bopanna and Qureshi also thanked fans from their respective countries for supporting them through their campaign.

Bopanna said,
"All those people from Pakistan and India supporting us these past two weeks, I thank everyone for helping me out but most importantly I would like to thank Aisam for playing with me and sticking with me we have had a great year together," 
Qureshi added,  
"I must thank my parents, brother, sister for supporting me throughout my career. People in Pakistan and India for supporting us, I must thank Rohan for sticking by me when I needed him the most and for playing with me and helping me with my cause and helping me to send some positive news to people back home in Pakistan and making them smile,"

Animated Flash Tag Cloud For Blogger !!!

       Make your readers immovable with a cool widget that helps viewers/readers trace their content they needed. Can't get what i am saying ???!!!. It is nothing but, 'Labels'... Search using clouds. But this is a widget that every Blogger user have.... What is special in that.

Imagine a widget which is animated or flash that actually rotates and revolves when you mouse hover it. All your Blog's LABELs revolve round in the flash widget. And i think now you can get that...
Animated Tag Clouds !!!

The below are the websites with such widget...

Now login to your blogger dashboard and then go to your blog's DESIGN and after that EDIT HTML....

And now do not forget to check the EXPAND WIDGETs option. After that, use your browser's FIND feature and find the below one line code in your blog's html.... If you find it, then just copy the HTML code in RED and paste after the line that is found....If you didn't find the below code, then use your browser's FIND feature and search for id='sidebar' and after that line paste the HTML code in RED....

<b:section class='sidebar' id='sidebar' preferred='yes'>
Below is the HTML code that you are going to insert into your blog's HTML code:




<b:widget id='Label99' locked='false' title='Labels' type='Label'>
<b:includable id='main'>
<b:if cond='data:title'>
<h2><data:title/></h2>
</b:if>
<div class='widget-content'>
<script src='https://sites.google.com/site/infivivek/vivsoft-tutorials/tutorials-blogger/blogger-tools-resources/swfobject.js' type='text/javascript'/>
<div id='flashcontent'>Animated Flash Cloud by <a href='http://blog.vivekanandan.in/2010/09/animated-flash-tag-cloud-for-blogger.html/'>Vivekanandan Manokaran. Credits: Roy Tanck & Blogger Buster & Blogger Stop</a></div>
<script type='text/javascript'>
var so = new SWFObject(&quot;https://sites.google.com/site/infivivek/vivsoft-tutorials/tutorials-blogger/blogger-tools-resources/tagcloud.swf&quot;, &quot;tagcloud&quot;, &quot;240&quot;, &quot;300&quot;, &quot;7&quot;, &quot;#ffffff&quot;);
// uncomment next line to enable transparency
//so.addParam(&quot;wmode&quot;, &quot;transparent&quot;);
so.addVariable(&quot;tcolor&quot;, &quot;0x333333&quot;);
so.addVariable(&quot;mode&quot;, &quot;tags&quot;);
so.addVariable(&quot;distr&quot;, &quot;true&quot;);
so.addVariable(&quot;tspeed&quot;, &quot;100&quot;);
so.addVariable(&quot;tagcloud&quot;, &quot;<tags><b:loop values='data:labels' var='label'><a expr:href='data:label.url' style='12'><data:label.name/></a></b:loop></tags>&quot;);
so.addParam(&quot;allowScriptAccess&quot;, &quot;always&quot;);
so.write(&quot;flashcontent&quot;);
</script>
<b:include name='quickedit'/>
</div>
</b:includable>
</b:widget>

 Alter the Width and Heigth:
      var so = new SWFObject("https://sites.google.com/site/infivivek/vivsoft-tutorials/tutorials-blogger/blogger-tools-resources/tagcloud.swf", "tagcloud", "240", "300", "7", "#ffffff");

  The numbers indicated in blue color are the pixels of width and height.. You can alter this by changing the pixel size there. Do not alter anything other than this, widget will not work.

Changing the Background Color:
var so = new SWFObject("https://sites.google.com/site/infivivek/vivsoft-tutorials/tutorials-blogger/blogger-tools-resources/swfobject.js", "tagcloud", "240", "300", "7", "#ffffff");
 Now it is the time for us to alter the Background color of the widget. You can do so by changing the html code of a background color. For example, here the specified color is #ffffff ... And you can alter to the color you wanted to. If you are confused in choosing the color, just go to your TEMPLATE DESIGNER and then find the recommended color for your theme and then copy the HTML code of that particular color and alter in the widget's html code.

Altering the TEXT Color:


so.addVariable("tcolor", "0x333333");
         Now you have guessed that the above snippet determines the color of your widget. And you can edit it too. In the above code, tcolor refers to the text color and the value for that tcolor is by default 333333. Now you can change the text color by the same way you did for changing the background color.
One thing is very important, when altering the color of the text, you must specify the color of the html code in hexa. And what you have to do is, simply ignore the # and just copy and paste the rest of the six digits.
