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! All this is because of my studies, hectic schedule, didn’t get enough time and few other factors. But, now Ankit is back with cool and new articles to write. 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

Think & Implement at Light Speed!

If you got an ‘idea’ that can drive business, implement it right away before someone snatches it from you and publishes the implementation, especially over the Internet. That’s what happened with me. I had a thought of building ‘code-history’, history of each line of source code file. Typically when you look at the source control, you see file history. Actually it’s not directly associated with source code file; it’s first coupled to the change (change-set) you made and then linked to the file. So, the idea was to build Code History by combining two typical file operations: 1) File History…

Blogging Fever!

Why do I blog? Is that to make money to run this website through ads? Making an identity on Internet? Being on the top of Google? Sharing my knowledge? Having a platform to write and publish what I think and what I like? It means all for me 🙂 , and that’s why I write blog. I remember the day when Dad subscribed for an ISP, and I touched Internet first time (1999). Those were the days of Netscape Navigator v4.5 and Yahoo rocking all around. Netscape had a build-in HTML editor, that attracted me right away and I started…
