A quote from the Bhagavad Gita,
“The mind is restless and difficult to restrain, but it is subdued by practice.”
Who am I ?
I am Rohit R. Verlencar. Born in the beautiful paradise state of Goa, India. But raised in Dubai, UAE (for those that have never heard of it, its close to I-ran).
I have a degree in Software Engineering. I did take an elective subject Psychology & trust me studying Sigmund Freud was more complex then Linux Kernel Programming!
I have also completed my MCSE 2003, CCNA & CCNP and Cyberoam CCNSP.
My Favorite quote?
People demand freedom of speech to make up for the freedom of thought which they avoid.
What do I do?
When I’m alone at home, I pretend to be Luke Skywalker practising with my lightsaber fighting my evil nemesis Sandstorm, my extremely leathel & stealth pet Russian Hamster.
Apart from that, I work as a Network Administrator for a computer accessories distributor company in Jebel Ali, Dubai.
An avid techno-crack who (thankfully) will stick with the blue pill (sorry Morpheus).
What do I like?
I like sci-fi, fantasy, horror, mysteries, techno-thrillers, historical fiction & action-adventure movies. And it better be entertaining. Also I dont like being disturbed when watching these movies; yes I was directing it at you Dark Lord Sauron. I hate it when you keep repeating x1000 times to go snatch the ring from Frodo !!
I like to find humor in most situations. I’ve usually got a smile on my face (except when I’m running) and I like to have fun.
I own a 27″ LCD TV. I dont watch stupid cable shows. I use it to play all my PC RPG games & watch History Channel or the Discovery Channel 24/7–you can never have too many shows about Hitler, ghosts, sharks & snakes.
Why the name Pancajanya’s Echo?
Panchajanya is a conch shell of the Hindu god Lord Krishna.
The warriors of ancient India would blow conch shells to announce battle, such as is famously represented in the beginning of the war of Kurukshetra in the Mahabharata, a famous Hindu epic.
My use of this conch shell is to announce my entry into the blog-sphere.
Why am I here?
I don’t like existential questions. They make me nervous.
But, I’m doing this blog ‘thingy’ because the internet is a big place and it would be a shame to let all of this real estate go to waste.
I shall write about whatever pops into my head or my life and inject my own twisted humour into the blogs.
The blog’s main focus is technology and everything built/based on it. There are occasional posts about events affecting us all or just something I stumbled upon and want to share with everyone and maybe get different opinions. You will find news, how to’s, funny things, my own Recipes (that’s right Im a food-o-holic), computer tweaks and everything else you could think of.
Besides, maybe I’ll introduce you all to something you’ve never seen or heard of before. And, just maybe, you’ll do the same.
Enjoy my Blog !
Until then, Calling Enterprise Flight deck, Beam me up Scotty…. Im waiting Scotty…. Scotty… please !!!
