Janmashtami

According to the Hindu religious calendar, September 07, 2004 is Janmashtami or Krsna (Krishna) Jayanthi. Outlook India has an article that dates the birth of Lord Krishna to July 21, 3228 BC. Funnily, this is only 7 days away from my own birthday. It is not all that much of a coincidence, I know, but it still gives me a stronger feeling of spirituality and connection.

Quote from the article: Krishna was born in the Rohini nakshatra, in the Hindu month of Bhadrapada, on the 8th day of the waning moon at midnight. Working backward from Krishna’s date of death drawn from the Shrimad Bhagwat, the Vishnu Puranas and the Mahabharata, July 21, 3228 BC satisfies all conditions of Krishna’s birth.

I’ve always contended that I’m not much of a religious person, but I’ve also maintained that it’s only because I’ve not had the time (or not given myself the time) to explore religion. But I have, in the last few years, learnt a lot more about various world religions. I guess the time is opportune to explore my own religious feelings a little more.

Too Much Blue

Anyone reading this is requested to peruse through the site (there isn’t really much to peruse…) and comment on whether they think I’ve over-used blue in the design. Other comments/suggestions are welcome.

More changes to the site

Because of Sameers incessant whining, I’ve made changes to the website, such that it should display fine on monitors with resolutions as low at 800 pixels wide. Also did some general houskeeping, in my effort to build/maintain the site decently. I’ve also added links to blogs/personal websites of friends, who either update often or I’m hoping will update often. All this, when I should be studying for a Corporate Finance final that I have tomorrow.

The site has been tested in both MSIE/6.0 and Mozilla/5.0. It reads better in Mozilla, which ofcourse comfirms better to the W3C standards. I recomend everyone use Firefox!

Stupid, Stupid, Drexel

It really annoys me that even after making it a point to ask, then follow up with the Billing dept. at Drexel, they do exactly what they said they would not. The incompetence of the place was just a minor bother earlier. I was never directly affected by it. But it’s getting to me now.

According to the financial aid section of Banner, I’ve been a student since 2000-01. On the other hand, my student information says that my first term I registered for was Fall 2001. Oh, and aparently some portions of banner show me as a transfer. I can just feel the next 2 years being a major shaft.
