Fair price


Fair price

Nixivan had gathered his friend for supper and was brewing a juicy piece of meat. Suddenly, he noticed they were out of salt.

Nixivan called his son: “Go to the village and buy salt. But pay the fair price for it; neither pricier nor cheaper.”

His son was surprised:

“I understand I shouldn’t pay more, father. But if we can bargain a little, why not save some money?”

“In a large city, this is advisable”he said. ” However, in a small city as ours, the entire village will notice it.”

His guest overheard their conversation and wanted to know why one shouldn’t buy salt for less.

Nixivan answered: “Those who sell underpriced salt, do it in a desperate need for money. Those who take advantage of the situation, show disrespect for the sweat and battle of a man that worked to produce something.”

“But that is too little to destroy a village.”

“In the beginning of the world, injustice was scant as well. But everyone that came afterwards added something, thinking it was not important, and see where we got today.”

Social Life insensitiveness


For the last couple of days I have been surfing the net in office time since I am not loaded. During this surfing I came across some new sites and I also come across some of my old ‘keep in touched’ sites which yet again refreshed me and rebounded me.

What interest me is only one thing and that is science and technology. I am insensitive to social life  issues and neither I feel like contributor in betterment of it. Many times I tried to develop my interest in social life but it is true that some thing comes natural and could not be developed.

I usually go in indefinite loop when I read on a sci-tech site clicking from link to link but when I read a social life related article I always leave it a t the middle. Then I thought about it and pondered if some thing is wrong. To me judgement I am not only insensitive to just social life but also to others suffering. I didn’t feel the suffering of little child H who was brutally killed recently. I couldn’t feel the suffering of the 150 school children death, though i condemned those inhuman acts of those terrorist.

What could be the reason of this insensitiveness. There may be many reason but to me the virtual life which social media and cellular network given us seem the prime factors of my insensitiveness. Though we get the instant information but we never feel the actual human feeling which comes by face to face communication.

This post is just highlighting the problem and I yet do not know the remedy of it  and I am thinking to include this in my new year point of concerns.

Fun coding


Last week I had come across the ‘An hour coding’ on khan academy  and it helped me get back to coding. I had cread some cool drawings on the plateform and then I continued this using java how to program book and luckyly I had no work load in office since last couple of weeks so every thing was a favopur of coding for me. Today I did this coding and I really enjoy it when I see the output.:-D

import java.util.*;
import java.lang.*;
import java.io.*;

/* Name of the class has to be “Main” only if the class is public. */
class arrayTest {
public static void main(String [] args){
 double[] myList= {12.0,6.5,7.5,5.0,2.5,10.0,20.0};
 for(int i =0; i<myList.length;i++){
  System.out.println(i + “:” + myList[i] );
 }
 double total = 0;
 for(int j= 0;j<myList.length; j++){
  total+=myList[j];
 // System.out.println(“Total is ” + total);
 }
 System.out.println(“Total is ” + total);
}
}

I hope this time it will continue.

Lastly I would like to recomment ideone for all those who want to do coding but don’t like or know how to install the compilors. This is really cool plateform to edit, compile and run your codes in any language.
