Responsive Image Gallery Using Bootstrap

Images are an integral part of websites. Compelling and great images can bring visitors to your website, and exciting displays of such images (Gallery, Carousel and Slider) can keep them there. So i decided to create   a Twitter Bootstrap -powered image gallery which zooms in on mouse hover. And I also decided to make it my second pen on Codepen.

Before copying this gallery to your html5 page please make sure to add bootstrap.css and bootstrap.js .

Kali Yuga as explained by Krishna

According to Hinduism  we are now  in Kali Yuga (“age of [the demon] Kali”, or “age of vice”) . It is the last of the four stages the world goes through as part of the cycle of  yugas described in the scriptures. The other ages are called Satya Yuga, Treta Yuga, and Dvapara Yuga.

Kali Yuga is associated with the demon Kali (not to be confused with the goddess Kālī). The “Kali” of Kali Yuga means “strife”, “discord”, “quarrel” or “contention”.

 

Kali Yuga as explained by Krishna
●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●

Krishna explains “What is Kaliyuga and what will happen during Kaliyuga?”

Once the four Pandavas (except who was not present) asked Krishna:

“What is Kaliyuga and what will happen during Kaliyuga?”

Krishna smiled and said “Let me demonstrate to you, the situation of Kaliyuga.” He took a bow and four arrows and shot them in four directions and ordered the four Pandavas to go and bring them back.

Each of the four Pandavas went in the four different directions to search for the arrows.

When Arjuna picked an arrow, he heard a very sweet voice. He turned around and saw a cuckoo singing in a spellbinding voice but was also eating flesh of a live rabbit which was in great pain. Arjuna was very surprised to see such a gory act by such a divine bird he left the place immediately.

Bhima picked arrow from a place, where five wells were situated. The four wells were surrounding a single well. The four wells were overflowing with very sweet water as if they were not able to hold water and surprisingly the well in the middle of these four overflowing wells was completely empty. Bhima was also puzzled at this sight.

Nakula was returning to the place after picking up the arrow. He stopped at a place where a cow was about to give birth. After giving birth the cow started licking the calf but continued to lick it even after the calf was clean. With great difficulty people were able to separate them and by that time the calf was injured badly. Nakula was puzzled by the behaviour of such a calm animal.

Sahadeva picked arrow which fell near a mountain and saw a big boulder falling. The boulder was crushing the rocks and big trees on its way down, but the same boulder was stopped by a small plant. Sahadeva was also amazed at this sight.
All the Pandavas asked the meaning of these incidents. Krishna smiled and started explaining…

“In Kaliyuga, the priests will have very sweet voice and will also have great knowledge but they will exploit devotees the same way cuckoo was doing with rabbit.

In Kaliyuga poor will live among rich, those rich will have enormous amount of wealth which will actually overflow but they will not offer a single penny to the poor same as the four wells didn’t have a single drop of water for the empty well.

In Kaliyuga parents will love their children so much that their love will actually spoil them and will destroy their lives similar to the love shown by cow to her newborn calf.

In Kaliyuga people will fall in terms of character like the boulder from the mountain and they will not be stopped by anyone at the end only the name of God will be able to hold them from doom like the little plant held the boulder from further fall.”

~ Uddhava Gita, Srimad Bhaagawatam

C# and it’s advantages over other programming languages

C# is a platform-independent, multi-paradigm, managed, type safe, object-oriented programming language.In this blog i tend to list advantages of C# over other programming languages such as C, C++ and Java.

 Advantages over C and C++

  • Compiled to an intermediate language (CIL) independently of the language it was developed or the target architecture and operating system
  • Automatic garbage collection
  • Pointers no longer needed (but optional)
  • Reflection capabilities
  • Don’t need to worry about header files “.h”
  • Definition of classes and functions can be done in any order
  • Declaration of functions and classes not needed
  • Unexciting circular dependencies
  • Classes can be defined within classes
  • There are no global functions or variables, everything belongs to a class
  • All the variables are initialized to their default values before being used (this is automatic by default but can be done manually using static constructors)
  • Non-boolean variables (integers, floats…) cannot be used as conditions. This is much more clean and less error prone
  • Applications can be executed within a restricted sandbox

 Advantages over C++ and java

  • Formalized concept of get-set methods, so the code becomes more legible
  • More clean events management (using delegates).

Advantages over java

  • Usually it is much more efficient than java and runs faster
  • It has more primitive types (value types), including unsigned numeric types
  • Indexers let you access objects as if they were arrays
  • Conditional compilation
  • Simplified multithreading
  • Operator overloading. It can make development a bit trickier but they are optional and sometimes very useful
  • (limited) use of pointers if you really need them, as when calling unmanaged (native) libraries which doesn’t run on top of the virtual machine (CLR)

9). Ruby on Rails

One of the easier langauages to learn, Ruby is next on the list. The language is heavily used for web programming. Mashable’s list ranks both Ruby and Ruby on Rails as incredibly powerful languages.Many top sites including Hulu, Twitter, Airbnb, and Groupon use Rails in building their web applications.

8). iOS/Swift

Swift is a programming language created by Apple for iOS. Through Swift you can create your own iPhone applications and release them on the App Store. This course is for those who hope to eventually build apps as a profession, and teaches students by building actual working apps — at increasing degrees of complexity.

7). Javascript

Despite the similarities in their name, Java and JavaScript are extremely different beasts to tame in the world of coding. JavaScript is primarily a scripting language used within HTML pages and is utilized by the majority of the websites you visit.Widely regarded as the language of the web, it is used to add interactivity to web pages. The language supports all major web browsers including Safari, Internet Explorer and Firefox.

6). PHP

Next on the list is PHP, the language which forms the backbone of many present-day content management systems including WordPress. The language regarded as an essential tool for building modern web applications was originally created by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1994.PHP code may be embedded into HTML code, or it can be used in combination with various web template systems, web content management system and web frameworks. PHP code is usually processed by a PHP interpreter implemented as a module in the web server or as a Common Gateway Interface (CGI) executable.

5). C#

C# (pronounce “See Sharp,” like the music note) is a C-variant programming language, meaning that much of the syntax and structure will help in learning other languages, such as C++ and Java. C# was developed and is still maintained by Microsoft.”You can use C# to create Windows client applications, XML Web services, distributed components, client-server applications, database applications, and much, much more. Visual C# provides an advanced code editor, convenient user interface designers, integrated debugger, and many other tools to make it easier to develop applications based on the C# language and the .NET Framework.”

4). Python

Python is a scripting language like JavaScript, but the two still have differences between them in terms of syntax and execution. Python is considered by many to be one of the more simple coding languages to learn, as it places less of an emphasis on syntax than other languages.According to a recent WANTED Analytics, demand for Python programming expertise increased 96.9% in big-data related positions in the last twelve months. Some of the top Big Data employers of 2014 are Cisco, IBM, Oracle, Teradata and Sabre.

C++ is another C-variant language and is popular in some circles for game development, as well as at many large banking institutions.The language also figures in prominently in efinancialcareers’s survey. “Due to the high cost of moving to new technologies there will continue to be significant demand for those who can programme in languages compatible with the legacy environment,” says the survey quoting Gina Schiller, vice president at Jay Gaines & Company. The language has also been standardized by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

1). Java

Topping the most popular programming languages list is Java. Java is seen as the programming language of choice for IoT, enterprise architecture, and cloud computing. The language has also been raked on top by efinancialcareers’s survey for most in-demand programming languages on Wall Street in 2015.he basic principle behind the language is to keep the developers at ease because it means to them “write once, run anywhere” (WORA). This refers that the Java language has no limitations because it can be run on any java compatible platform without recompiling it. The Java applications are special as they can run on any Java Virtual Machine by compiling it to byte code. Here the computer architecture is of no use. In the year 2015, Java was one of the most popular programming. It was considered highly valuable client-server web applications. It had a total of 9 million developers last year. The Java programming was introduced in 1955. The syntax of the language comes from C and C++.Java is also at the central of a patent battle between Google and Oracle. Oracle sued Google in 2010, claiming that Google had improperly incorporated parts of Java into Android.

Is tuition necessary for students

It is extremely common among students, especially primary and secondary students. When asked if tuition is really necessary, different people have different opinions. From my point of view, tuition can help a student to learn and develop a lot more than normal school studying hours. But is it really necessary?

Tuition was not necessary in the past as education was not so emphasized. But nowadays, many students prefer to go tuition because they believe it can help them achieve success and also allows them to gain more knowledge. When having tuition, students get to learn in smaller groups or on a one-to-one basis. This is certainly advantageous to timid students as they get the opportunities to speak up and ask questions. Further more a student get more personal attention and develop good study skills with their tutors’ help.

The greatest and best thing about tuition is that ii doesn’t divide the students based on their grades and ability. I.e. Tuition is suitable for all types of students. A student who consistently scores well might seek tuition to main their grade. Average-scorers would wish to improve their grade. And weaker students would want to pass the exams. Tuition could be a necessity to one, but a choice to the other. Tuition greatly depends on individual’s objective.  Another thing is that tuition does not restrict to academics within the syllabus. It allows students to prepare for competitions, technical skills such as microsoft office. It saves time in learning, thus allowing student to juggle non-curricular activities.

The only disadvantage or danger of tuition is that it is time consuming i.e. With so much to juggle, students will hardly find time to rest. In conclusion whether tuition is necessary depends on the students themselves. Thus, parents have to decide with the right perspective instead of peer influence. Tuition is the supporting pillar of education and it is no doubt still a necessity . At least, at the moment.

The film covers Gandhi’s life from a defining moment in 1893, as he is thrown off a South African train for being in a whites-only compartment, and concludes with his assassination and funeral in 1948. Although a practising Hindu, Gandhi’s embracing of other faiths, particularly Christianity and Islam, is also depicted. Gandhi’s character is explained fully as a man if nonviolence.. He through his patience is able to drive the British out of the subcontinent. And the stubborn nature of Jinnah and his commitment towards Pakistan is portrayed.
