Failuer is not the end, rather it is a beginning

"Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall."

"Only those who dare to fail greatly can achieve greatly."
~ Robert F. Kennedy
Quoted from this location

Every time we fail we learn something different which we would have not done if we had succeeded. Never give up.

I have failed so many times when trying to make the program work for specific functionality. But all those failure scenarios are very useful down the line sometime. The extent of happiness and feeling of achieved something gives satisfaction and energy to proceed better.

Giving - book release presentation

The TV show on the book release "Giving" authored by Ex-pres with ubiquitous panel discussion about ruthless power of giving drove me to think about what we have given to others and society.

The author said "You don't need to be richer to do something different, rather you should have the passion and eager to accomplish it." An example quoted by the author”
GE(General Electrical) can make a difference by GIVING, an eco friendly products which doesn’t impact the global warming thereby creating an healthy environment for the next generation" and A 12 year old baby celebrated his birthday by cleaning the beach for more than a mile

Get off your ass, do something – To transform into an entrepreneur

Starting a company doesn’t come without hard work and effort.
Also someone cannot become an entrepreneur, just because he/she wanted to start a business. In my perception, a person should have worked hard to be an entrepreneur.
He/she should have been committed, hardworking and goal oriented.
Should be ready to Get off the ass and do the work. Self motivated towards achieving the goal.

A good quality which most of the entrepreneurs have is the thought process of benefiting the company as well as the community

Agassi about winning the match

The match semi finals between Federrer and Rodick witnessed the best players of the tennis as audience. Agassi, the eight grand slam winner, in his commentry had said "Its not important that you should be playing a good, its more of playing better than the opponent. Identify the weak areas and make it positive to win."

I hope federrer is the best match for his statement. In his match against Lopez, though he didnt serve very hard aces, he managed to outperform and entered to semis.

In our project we had a real time scenario of capturing the control at runtime in the User Control and setting the property for that. The page design is as follows. There is a master page and content page. The content page has a user control and few div . At runtime the user control has to identifiy one of the Div's in the content page and set the property for that page.

To capture the div in the user control
use the following.
Control cr = (Control)this.Parent.FindControl(DIVName)

KeyWords : UserControl, FindControl, MasterPage, ContentPage

Nadal the star

An astounishing champion with good power to hit the shots.
He never loses his confidence and energy in favour of the opponent.
The splendid match between Nadal and Ferrer, with a three set defeat by ferrer was an unforgettable moment for me in tennis history.

Tennis has become a fast moving and power hitting game.
In the US open i had noticed players serving in a very fast pace.
The speed varied between 120-150.

The second serve speed at 142 m/hr by Roddick against Federrer is hard to believe and attempt.

Federrer Vs Lopez

The long weekend holidays got over and i had a nice 3 days holiday to relax and rest myself from work. I was watching tennis in channel USA. A wonderful game between Lopez and federrer.

An amazing first set won by lopez against federrer. Federrer came back to the set with good confidence and defeated lopez. Almost most of the Aces in the match were served at a speed more than 130 m/h. The one which i admire was the second serve by lopez at the speed of 180m/h which federrer didn't even tried to attempt. The young lopez lost confidence when the federrer took the first set in the second round with four consecutive aces.
The aggressive lopez has a very good talent to become a champion. I am very sure with a good practice and confidence he can do wonders in tennis.
