Pesky Trouble from @KVVighnesh (

I have been supporting the technical building of the website of Astrologer Vighnesh since 2010 but I do not strongly encourage astrology and those pariharams-palaharams concept. However of late, the pesky trouble from Astrologer Vighnesh in forcing me to reviews in support of him in third grade websites like Sulekha seems to be increasing that I reported the messages to pertinent authorities.

I had also escalated the issue about this to Sulekha team. You can check out the full complaint over here.

I have also re-edited the Google Review for him considering the steep disturbances he is giving for the past few days (now deleted). The text of the review is below.

The astrologer provides two websites and for US and India. But that is confusing the users as to where the astrologer originally is. There should be a clear indication of which is the correct headquarters. 
Also, I am getting irritated by frequent pesky messages from the service provider soliciting reviews on third party websites like sulekha surekha and hence I am forced to re-edit the review. 
Also I am an athiest following rational ideologies. I do not have beliefs in all these spiritual astrological pariharams and palaharams. Despite repeatedly telling that I am only suggesting him on the technology front for the service provider website, the service level solicitation is a big irritation.  
Also considering other astrologers I feel the payment terms is very steep. 2000 for India and 150$ for US will only restrict to higher end customers.
For some reason this astrologer does not converse in Whatsapp but only make voice calls and that too in odd times.  As of yesterday night it looks like Jio and Sulekha had been banging on him and in retaliation he has blocked me on Whatsapp and not responding to emails too. :)

eChallan System with @cctpolice. Will it work?

 Recent found a news in Mambalam Times that Hon'ble Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu is allocating a whopping big fund to upgrade the eChallan system to have swiping facility.

But our big concern is how safe are these swiping machines from card skimming?

JPO to JWO and now to HNY (Jio Rocks!)

After today's announcements by Shri. Mukesh Ambani, it is clear that Jio has extended its free offerings till March 31 2017. What initially started before 5 September 2016 was Jio Preview Offer. From the period of 9/5/2016 to 31/12/2016 (or 12/3/2016) it is Jio Welcome Offer. Now from this date to 3/31/2017 it is HNY (Happy New Year) Offer.

There is a catch. The per day bandwidth has been capped down to 1 GB. it was capped to 4 GB in JWO and unlimited in JPO. This is in accordance with FUP because of abuse by a few freeloaders. Getting a SIM also should be easy with eKYC and home delivery measures. No more queueing up early outside Reliance Digital stores and no black market buying for skyrocketing prices.

Truly Jio has revolutionized the way we use the phone in India. Remember it is a 4G only service and hence your phone has to support 4G. And for calls it is just not 4G but 4G VoLTE (Voice Over LTE) and hence if your phone is just 4G you may need an app called Jio 4G Voice to bridge the gap.

*New currency and the Common man*

*Many people say that this move by Modi government is affecting the common man more than the one who has hoarded black money. They say, this should have been done without affecting the common man.*

*But the common man is part of the system that created black money.*
*1. Common man is the one who goes and gets his groceries from a retail shop for cheaper price, knowing that the retail shop hardly pays any tax at all.*
*2. Common man is the one who prepares fake rental agreements and shows it as proof for HRA.*
*3. Common man is the one who pays bribe (through black money) to a government official, just to make out work easier.*
*4. Common man is the one who accepted Rs. 500/1000 (Black money) from both political parties that are contesting elections.*
*5. Common man is the one who purchases a product without bill, to save money (thereby creating black money)*
*6. Common man is the one gives maamool (black money) to the police for keeping their illegal shops*
*7. Common man is the one who offers bribe (black money) to the police for drunk and drive, not wearing a helmet, etc. instead of paying heavy fines at the court. Same way police collects cash  "Hafta" from all hawkers traders etc. Municipal staff, rail staff and many others  collect bribes all cash.*
*8. Common man is the one who saves money little by little and purchases property and registers for under market value to save money (thereby creating black money)*
*9. Common man is the one who gives donation (Black money) to a private school who won't give a bill*
*10. Common man is the one who doesn't even understand that he is entitled to far more privileges than he/she is currently receiving, which is drastically reduced to corruption/black money*
*11. Common man is the one who complains about the corrupt system but doesn't take any steps to correct the system, but instead keeps on playing the blame game.*
*12. Common man is the one who is complaining now that this Bold step is causing inconvenience to them.*
*13. Common man is the one who justifies all these acts saying politicians are corrupt, so we can be corrupt too.*
*So I am asking how can one cleanup a system that you and me (Common Man) are an integral part of?*
So to the common man of India, my message is *"Bear the pain now and reap the gain in the future!"*
*Jai Hind*

Enhanced Chanting Utility with #islam model five times a day prayers

Islam has the best code of conduct with an emphasis for five times prayer to the Lord. I have been aspiring to emulate this from time long. Today I have enhanced my chanting utility towards the same. Here is my plan outline for Five Times A Day Prayer:

  1. Fajr (pre-dawn): Sri Gurudev Datta
  2. Dhuhr (midday):- Sri Vishnu Sahasranamam
  3. Asr (afternoon):- Rudram/Chamakam (recitation by SVBC)
  4. Maghrib (sunset):- Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Sahasranamam
  5. Isha'a (night): Om Namo Bhagavathe Vasudevaya

The screenshot of my chanting tool now looks like:



The total size of the code and the chanting comes to around 140 MB. If you are interested send me an email request to deepak.vasudevan (at) and I would send you the download link. Please note that the MP3 are in public domain and not for resale.
