How I met Sadhguru? Part - 2

If you have missed Part - 1 Please click here

I have become more curious about Sadhguru. One thing I have forgotten to tell you in my previous post is that Isha Foundation released its first copy of "Kattupoo", a spiritual, social, life,... covering tamil magazine on that day. I have got my copy and it was so nice. When I searched about him online, I came to know about the book "Atthanaikkum Aasaipadu..". Title itself intrigued me that he confuses already established minds. Because all the time, We were told from our childhood "Spirituality means 'Love is the reason for all suffering' so those who are in spiritual are highly detached from family and surroundings and will goto mountain caves/forest or to some ashram in a remote place".

I read the book "Atthanikkum Aasaipadu" in one shot (Yes!). "How many doors you can open man, that too in a single book?" felt after reading every Q&A in that book. This book led me to read another book on him "Unakkaagavay oru Ragasiyam". Yes! It was meant for me. Similar Q&A style essays made me to ascertain so many things about life. And his partial biography which ran throughout the book parallely to Q&As are so interesting and made me to think, "Yes! Yes! Yes! This is possible but seems magical".

After reading that book became little more curious about Sadhguru. Then I visited website. So many thing I had come to know in and around about Isha. The two prime things are Dhyanalingam and a Theerthkund. I came to know that Dhynalingam is a lingam which has fully energized seven chakras and it is live guru without physical body.  Theerthakund is a preparatory tool to enable a person to be receptive to Dhyanalinam. I could not believe all these stuffs. I didn't know all these chakra stuffs and consecrations during that time. Still had the curiosity to see what it is.

So I planned to visit Isha Yoga Centre and went there one fine day.

In next part, will reveal what happened there.....

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'.

   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…
