I found an interesting news on “Times Of India” today morning. Its great news for businessmen who are in IT like me.
Gujarat may have missed the information technology bus but, the state is set to make a mark with a number of upcoming IT special economic zones (SEZs). There are about five proposed IT SEZ projects in the state approved by the Centre.
While some of them may take time to come up, Calica Construction and Impex Pvt Ltd, an Ahmedabad-based company promoted by structural engineers Bipin Shah and Amrish Patel, has started work on its Rs 650 crore SEZ, which is coming up near Science City in Ahmedabad. The project has got a final nod from Union ministry of commerce and industry. The SEZ, coming up on over 26 acres land, will also house a 50-storeyed building.
“Construction will start this month. We plan to create infrastructure and 35 lakh sq feet space in the complex,” said Shah, a promoter of Calica group, which is executing the project through its subsidiary, 3rd Eye.
With Software Technology Parks in India (STPI) scheme coming to an end in March 2010, a lot of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) will start looking for options.
“That is where we will gain. Unlike some SEZs, which woo IT biggies, our strategy is to get small and medium units in our zone. Our complex will be ready by March 2011. We will have a first-mover’s advantage,” said Shah. Estimates suggest several small companies operate in about 22 lakh sq feet area in Ahmedabad. “A number of local IT companies and BPO companies have approached us,” said Shah.
The company plans to invest Rs 300 crore in the first phase. “The investment will double by the time we complete our second phase,” he said.
Today I was roaming on web for finding some solution to implement url_rewriting under IIS server. Suddenly , I found a very good video on a website. A small but very good play. I recommend to watch it. My kudos to TheWayToHappiness.org
We at MULTIDOTS using SVN for all our projects. SVN helps us lot for code revision and work collaboration. As projects get increased it was required for us to find some easy GUI for Repository and User Access Managment tool. I had tried couple of them. But I am quite impressed with USVN. Finally I decided to go with that. Now its working all well and my job is done. Now I can easily manage my all the projects, repository access on those projects and repository. It saves my lots of time to create new project or repository in SVN.
Few Facts about USVN
Its Web Based GUI Programe for Repository Management.
Its powered by PHP/MySQL with Zend Framework.
Its not supporting any ways to manage hooks right now.
I am going to write few problems and issue I had to face while setuping up the USVN and my SVN Server in my next Post. If you are facing any issue with USVN setup or SVN setup you can share you problems here, I will try my best to answer them all.
- Output an object with all the properties.
- Debuging methods and variables.
- Debuging in Internet Explorer is a headache.
- And more….
While was googeling for some script I come across with a wonderful utility provided by firebug. We can of course use firebug as an extension in mozilla firefox. But what about the Internet Explorer.
Please check this screen snap.
Yes this is the firebug in internet explorer and most improtant thing is that I have debug one object. Firebug is showing me all the method and property values in console. Isn’t it amazing?
To use firebug in Internet Explorer you just need to do one simple thing that is include this script at <head> tag of your code and you are all done.
Today is a special day for me and my MULTIDOTS team. We were working on one of our application since month. After a lots of efforts and testing finally we launched this site, chitchatt.in
Chitchatt is a new way of chatting and making new friends.
Start making friends now !!!
Atchitchatt.in, we take up a random person for you from online users. An arbitrary person will
be engaged with you.Your chat will be with a stranger but still there is nothing to stop you
from knowing each other and making friends if you would like
There is also a charity thoughts attached with this idea. 10% of total revenue generated from the Chitchatt will be donated to needy people.

In our last TLT (TL’s Training) we had a nice discussion on Responsibility. Nirav Mehta said that Power comes from Responsibility. Now it was my turn to share this thought in my team. As a part of my preparation for the TLT which I was going to take I found a nice article on Responsibility by Nisandeh Neta.So I decided to do this exercise in my TLT. Here is something which we did.
Everyone was organized in 2×3 matrix in their chair.
First Colomn : Twinke,Pratik,Hitesh
Second Coloumn : Jignesh, Malay, Sanjay, Kushan.
I asked everyone to close their eyes and to listen what I say and put themselves in my words.
I asked them to experience a journey in a bus. I was also asking them to experience the things which happens in this bus.
First they had nominated someone to drive their bus.
Then they were feeling what sort of things went wrong while they were siting in last row and choose not to drive.
Then I asked them to take driver’s sit and feel that steering wheel of the bus is on their own hands. Things had been changed now.
They felt freedom and power on their hand.
That’s all responsibility comes with.
Summery of the Article :
Life is a bus.
Bus has a destination plate written but we hardly care to read it.
We generally nominate some one experienced to drive our bus. It may be your father, mother, legal adviser, etc.
During this journey we sit last and wasting our time in useless things.
Some feel bored, some fall sleep, some feel emptiness.
Everything in the bus will be of the choice of driver: destination, ways, musics.
Now you are taking the steering wheel in your own hands.
When you sit in front you will see road ahead of you,everything is fresh, new and exciting.
You can choose someone experienced and one you like to navigate the way but ultimate decision should be yours.
Destination is the only excuse for the journey so enjoy the ride.
In the plate of the destination of this bus was written “Freedom“.
Kushan : He said we should set some good example for our spouse and we can do it only if we take responsibility.
Malay: I will drive my own bus with lots of power and freedom.
Jignesh : Will take advices from the family and friends but final decision will be mine.
Pratik : In initial stage we should let our father and mother to drive our life and once we get onfidence we should humbley and smoothly take steering.
Twinkle : Nice experience. Our decision may affect many other peoples like husband, father, mother, brother, mother-in-law, friends but the most it affects is you so take steering on your hands and select the correct path.
Sanjay : Always choose someone to navigate the way.
Hitesh : We already drive our life by our own but we never feel that power and responsibilty. So feel it and enjoy the life.
Anil : Don’t blame on anyone for anything happens with you. If you want power and want to feel the freedom take the responsility and set the examples.
Today is Ram Navami. A day when God Shree Ram was born on earth. So its a very special day in India. But it has become even more than special for me and my family. Reason is my bhabhi ( wife of my second elder brother Pintu ) gave a birth to a baby boy. So now I am an uncle of my 4 cute nephews. Its again a day for celebration. I have just spent a good amount of money yesterday when I became ZCE . But its worth very less in front of the happiness of my family and me.
Many many congratulations to my Bhagvati Bhabhi and my brother Pintu.
I am also looking for some good name for my 4th nephew.
