Holidays are here again!! Of course I am writing this post in the midst of my Holidays because I was busy resting, eating home made food, watching movies and spending time with family. I was really missing my blog very much because apart from the things mentioned above I like blogging very much. I watched a lot of movies. It’s now time for Fifa Fever. I don’t know much about this game but thought of following the sport this season. Having interest in any one of the sport could be beneficial. By the way, The World Cup is already giving shockers. Korea playing good, Swiss winning, Spain losing, Ronaldo getting yellow card, its going crazy!! And I am enjoying it.
Talking about sports, I have tried my hand in Badminton and Volley ball during my school days, but most of the time you would find me either with my course books or my PC or laptop. The holidays are the best time for me to enjoy my hobbies. My greatest hobby is reading. I love reading right from the childhood. So I went to the bookshelf to choose something for myself.
The old books from the bookshelves were staring at me. I saw some old novels but then thought of choosing something creative. And then I found an old book “Programming in BASIC”. I bought it years ago, because I wanted to learn programming. As a kid I used to enjoy LOGO a lot. The programming was easy and I used to write programs to draw different structures on the screen. I remember the cursor used to be of triangular shape and the author of the book used to call it Turtle!!!!! . In the school, we were taught DOS. Just the premelinaries, like creating a file, opening a file and directory or so. The real fun was Visual Basic. In that we design the form first by dragging the buttons and textbox and different tools. Then when we used to double click the tool a new window opens where we used to write the program for it. And then running them on the system used to be like, see I have created software by myself. Really computer world is so innovative.I picked up Fundamentals of Computers by V.Rajaraman and I also picked one I studied this semester in the college, Programming in C by Gottfried and then I wrote some of the programs and tried them on the system and Bingo!! They ran successfully. It feels so good when your program runs without giving an error. Learning different computer languages is fun and I always try to learn these languages with full interest and revise them periodically, so that I don’t forget them. So browsing so many books from the book shelf I landed up in taking one of the book related to computers only. Really Computer Programming is challenging and very interesting at the same time.
Anyways coming back to my holidays, it’s so refreshing and gives a soothing feeling when I roam in my kitchen garden. Small mangoes still hanging in the trees and surrounding is green. Beautiful flowers, grass, birds and squirrels create such a nice environment for meditation 🙂 .It’s so refreshing!!( And its raining outside while I am writing this post).So, enjoy your holidays watching Fifa World Cup 2010 and doing something creative. But a million dollar question is “Qui sera le Champion Mondial 2010?”(Who will be the Champion of World Cup 2010?).So stay tuned
