A visit to Bhongir Fort

Far from Hyderabad, on an isolated monolithic rock and for just Rs 3 entrance ticket, what you get is a glimpse of a biggest monolithic rock you would have ever seen or had a trek! Welcome to Bhongir Fort (or Bhuvangiri). Buvangiri is a small town located in Nalgonda district on Warangal-Hyderabad highway. It’s about 70 Kms from Cyderabad if you drive-through. You can also do bike trip. But we decided to take the public transport, and here is my travel-cum-photo log of the day trip.

Thank you, Arti !

Every day is a regular day unless some moments make them special and memorable. I had one such day , and that’s why it deserves a mention here. A girl, I meant dream-girl ;), came to my dreams, woke me up, tied my eyes and took me towards a special room. My expectations were on a high peak, and what I found was beyond my expectations, seriously. It was a room decorated, lit up and a cake to celebrate this special day, exactly at 12AM. Thanks Arti for making it wonderful, I never felt so special ever before on this day. You made my day. I…

Concept Maps for sharing knowledge

A concept map is a graph to organize (domain) knowledge. It’s a way of representing concepts (entity/act/idea/process) and relationship between them. It is developed to facilitate learning and knowledge sharing among humans. Here is a simple concept map describing myself. The concept maps are quite similar to RDF Graphs, where we can explain entities and relate them with predicates only. With concept maps we can related any concept/idea with either predicate, act or relationship (RDF becoming more stricter). Wish you a very Happy New Year! – ankit

A Long Absence…

A lot of topics were roaming in my mind, but not able to decide what to write and which one to take first. And it has been 6 months – I haven’t written a single blog post!

And one promise to the readers of my blog – such absence will not occur again. At least I’ll try to write something about my experiences, my passions, techie stuff. – ankit
