Would there be any respite from corrupt Indian politicians!

Basically I am a positive guy and firm believer that India would come out of the bewilderment it’s in today. But from the day I got consciousness (about 15 years back when I was about 13-14) about my country, its goodness, its problems, I hardly see any progress.

Certainly we are growing economically; we can see better roads, better transportation, better life styles but then….still the same or rather more number of people begging around, more number of people bearing injustice, more poverty, more angriness, more dissatisfaction all over. Alas…it seems all the development is restricted for only certain section of our society especially our government officials, bureaucrats and politicians.

They can get away with anything… take the recent example of now (surprisingly) disgraced former Haryana police chief SPS Rathore, he did the most heinous crime of molesting a child…and instead of getting punished poor Ruchika Girhotra was punished and murdered. He is being trialed only since he had association with opposition parties guys not the ruling ones, otherwise nobody would have dared to touch him even after 19 years of his crime.

And then the veteran N. D. Tiwari…he has been the senior leader of congress holding all the highest positions like CM, Governor..and now when he is on the verge of end at 84 years...he crossed all the limits of decency with the act I feel ashamed even to mention it here…I am not sure how his family and near ones going to handle this. As far as his party or his colleagues are concerned it won't be much difficult for them to ignore this since he has already resigned and since these politicians are used to such disgracefulness and they know how to overcome it by making us foolish.

These politicians can easily create havoc , can easily bring animosity among us in the names of lanuguage, state, culture and easily get away with it.

I really see no respite from all these rubbish. I think we need a guy someone like Salman Khan in wanted…:)

Jokes apart, I see a ray of hope in guys like Nitish Kumar, Rahul Gandi, Nitin Gadakari..who would think out of the box of these politicians and work for the upliftment of people instead of their party..and yes we have arise to do our bit.

See you again….


WCF - Deployment and configurational issues

Today when I hosted WCF service in IIS 7.0. I got an error like

HTTP Error 404.3 - Not Found Description: The page you are requesting cannot be served because of the Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) map policy that is configured on the Web server. The page you requested has a file name extension that is not recognized, and is not allowed.

I explored and found solution.

What is intuitive here is that .svc extension is not recognized i.e. Http handler of .svc is not defined :) So the solution I found was that:
In the control panel > add remove programs > windows on off programs, select WCF HTTP Activation and WCF Non-HTTP Activation as in the picture:

Windows will take few minutes to update and after that your WCF Service will run smoothly on Vista and IIS7.

Also, I got some other issues while deploying WCF service on IIS7 on Vista OS, after installing below items under IIS7, things were fixed.

The Secret of Luck: Why Some People Have All the Luck

Why do some people have all the luck while others are perpetually unlucky? Professor Richard Wiseman of the University of Hertfordshire was determined to get to the scientific bottom of the phenomenon of luck, and what he discovered may surprise you:

I placed advertisements in national newspapers asking for people who felt consistently lucky or unlucky to contact me.

Hundreds of extraordinary men and women volunteered for my research and over the years, have been interviewed by me. I have monitored their lives and had them take part in experiments. The results reveal that although these people have almost no insight into the causes of their luck, their thoughts and behaviour are responsible for much of their good and bad fortune. Take the case of seemingly chance opportunities. Lucky people consistently encounter such opportunities, whereas unlucky people do not.

I carried out a simple experiment to discover whether this was due to differences in their ability to spot such opportunities. I gave both lucky and unlucky people a newspaper, and asked them to look through it and tell me how many photographs were inside. I had secretly placed a large message halfway through the newspaper saying: ‘Tell the experimenter you have seen this and win $50′.

This message took up half of the page and was written in type that was more than two inches high. It was staring everyone straight in the face, but the unlucky people tended to miss it and the lucky people tended to spot it.

Unlucky people are generally more tense than lucky people, and this anxiety disrupts their ability to notice the unexpected.
