How I met Sadhguru? Part - 1

I was pursuing my Masters at College of Engineering, Guindy. In the year 2007, Isha Gramotsavam was conducted at my college grounds. There were hoardings around college of a man with white beard and turban displaying that there will be sathsang at 6 PM.  Little background about my mind set that time : To the core I hate all these saamiyaars and gurus. When somebody gave me the book "Kadhavai Thira Kaatru Varattum" by Nithyananda. I have read one page and never looked back at the book. I have understood that the words in that book makes no sense. I clearly know one thing that I dont know anything about god stuffs. But with our brought-up, I have sense to bow down to Gods and pray to them. Background is over.

Within that week I happened to see that man with white beard face some three/four times. Whenever I see his face, I had a feel of pull towards him. I was always happy irrespective of the situations of life. I don't have a problem so I that I was looking for a solace. I felt weird why I there is pull when I see his face. Finally I have decided to attend that 6'o clock sathsang with Sadhguru.

When I went there, There are lakhs of people. Oh! I didn't expect such a big crowd. Had a feeling "Avlo periya appatakkaraaa?" I sat there, Listened to the speech. I have understood that this is not a speech by stage speaker. logically I can understand He speaks truth. But still I had a feeling, anybody with good smartness can speak like this.

Later, He guided us for a simple meditation. Game Over! Yes It happened. You might question me "What such big thing happened to you?". Certain things you have to experience. I am not expecting you to believe this but this is what happened. It is like floating in my experience and it is rich. Felt a "Wow! He is the man! No No He is the light".

At the end, He began to sing "Yogeeswarayaa Maha devaayaa..." Melted to tears. For no reason I ran towards him.

Will see you in Part - 2!

Which Game Engine ?

Long Long ago ... so long ago I wrote blog.. After many months writing again. This time about Game Engines.

While I was learning during my school/college period, I want to make games using the language features alone. I never wanted to make a game using game engine. Somewhere in my mind I felt that using game engine is an inferior activity. I wanted to be a hard core guy!

As the time passes, game making becomes secondary and other tech stuffs like .net, web apps , db occupied my mindspace. When I later decided to quit my job and take up game development as my primary focus area, the first problem that came to me was Which Game Engine / No Game Engine?

That time I was little experienced, so ultimately my number of years in technology told me that going for Game Engine is the right way. Then comes the problem, Which Game Engine?

With the help of google, I came to know about the following game engines/frameworks. Unity, Unreal, LibGDX,GameMaker, SDL, Allegro, Mono...

Tabs at the bottom of TabActivity

Tabs at the bottom of TabActivity
By default tabs in Android are displayed at the top. It is a general guideline for android developers to keep the tabs at top of the Tabs based application since lot of Android mobiles are having their home, back,search buttons or touch interface at the bottom

But its purely our decision :)

There are two ways to achieve this.
Using RelativeLayout Using "android:layout_weight" attibute  1) Using RelativeLayout: .xml will look like the following.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<TabHost xmlns:android=""
        <FrameLayout android:id="@android:id/tabcontent"

Windows Workflow : Dependency Property "does not define a static dependency property with name"

If you encounter the below exception while registering a DependencyProperty

"Error 103 Could not create activity of type 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxx'. System.ArgumentException: Type 'xxxxxxxxxx' does not define a static dependency property with name 'xxxxxxProperty'.
Parameter name: ownerType
   at System.Workflow.ComponentModel.DependencyProperty.ValidateAndRegister(String name, Type propertyType, Type ownerType, PropertyMetadata defaultMetadata, Type validatorType, Boolean isRegistered)
   at System.Workflow.ComponentModel.DependencyProperty.Register(String name, Type propertyType, Type ownerType)
   at xxxxx..cctor()"


If you are registering Dependency Property with name 'XYZ' then the declaration should be exactly like this,

public static DependencyProperty XYZProperty = DependencyProperty.Register("XYZ", typeof(bool), typeof(ApprovalWorkflow));
        public bool IsRestarted
            get { return ((bool)(GetValue(XYZPrope…
