About Svec_Alumni Group ( Only for students/alumni of Sree Vidyanikethan Engineering College)

This group is the alumni group for SVNEC students. The policies of the group were very good when the group started. But after some time, the moderators of the group have started moderating the mails. Originally the moderation of mails started for moderating the porn/spam mails sent to the group. There is no problem in moderating the mails, but the groups members are not notified about the moderation policies. Recently I found that, moderators are approving only those mails which they think are use full. They are not even allowing the comments on the moderation policy to the group. The number of moderators are 4 but only the owner replies to the mails. What the other moderators are doing ? I am not able to send a message regarding anti-reservation protests to the group and I am notified after 2 days, the reason behind its rejection. The reason was that not all people are in India. This is happenning with many other members of svec alumni. We don't want to loose information sent by the alumni. The primary purpose of the group is to communicate the info. If current burning info is not allowed to the group, then what is the purpose of the alumni group ?

I don't have any grudge over the moderators of this group. I am blogging this as they are not in a position to listen.

As time changes - people change -even the Best

There is another good yahoo group for Alumni of SVEC students started by the oldest batch of SVEC.

  1. Hi Chakri,
    You are right about alumni. They are acting "too smart & mindless". I have experienced it already and left the group.

    So where are you dear currently ?

Ramo Vigrahavan Dharmah

A great verse from Ramayana:

आहार निद्रा भय मैथुनं च सामान्यमेतत् पशुभिर्नराणाम् ।
धर्मो हि तेषामधिको विशेष: धर्मेण हीनाः पशुभिः समानाः ॥

AhAra-nidrA-bhaya-maithunam cha samAnam_etat_pashubhir_narANAm |
dharmo hi teShAm adhiko visheSho dharmeNa hInAH pashubhiH samAnAH||

Eating, Sleep, Fear and Sex ; these habits are common between human beings and animals. It is the Dharma which is the special quality of the human beings. Without the Dharma, they are similar to the animals. 

Rama is The Embodiment Of Dharma. 

Maaricha, while speaking to Ravana- (Aranya Kandam 37-13):

रामो विग्रहवान् धर्मः साधुः सत्य पराक्रमः |
राजा सर्वस्य लोकस्य देवानाम् इव वासवः || ३-३७-१३||

raamo vigrahavaan dharmaH saadhuH satya paraakramaH |
raajaa sarvasya lokasya devaanaam iva vaasavaH || 3-37-13

"Rama is the embodiment of righteousness, he is an equable person with truthfulness as his valour, and as with Indra to all gods he is the king of entire world. [3-37-13]

Story about Samsara from Vidura in Maha Bharatha

From Sri Maha Bharatham - 11th Maha Parva (Stri Parva) - Jalapradanika Sub Parva - 5th Chapter

"Dhritarashtra said, ‘Tell me in detail everything about the ways of that intelligence by which this wilderness of duties may be safely covered.’

"Vidura said, ‘Having bowed down to the Self-create, I will obey thy behest by telling thee how the great sages speak of the wilderness of life. A certain brahmana, living in the great world, found himself on one occasion in a large inaccessible forest teeming with beasts of prey. It abounded on every side with lions and other animals looking like elephants, all of which were engaged in roaring aloud. Such was the aspect of that forest that Yama himself would take fright at it.

Beholding the forest, the heart of the brahmana became exceedingly agitated. His hair stood on end, and other signs of fear manifested themselves, O scorcher of foes! Entering it, he began to run hither and thither, casting his eyes on every point of the compass fo…

Not choosing is a choice

These are some of the quotes I found interesting on choosing.

You are your choices. 

It’s not about time, it’s about choices. How are you spending your choices?

Not Making a Choice is a Choice. 

Letting things happen by default is a choice. If we choose to give up our right to make a choice - we have made a choice.

“When you have to make a choice and don’t make it, that is in itself a choice.” -William James

“A man who procrastinates in his choosing will inevitably have his choice made for him by circumstance.” — Hunter S. Thompson


In one sense choice is possible, but what is not possible is not to choose. 

You can always choose, but you must know that if you do not choose, that is still a choice.
