Why is being remembered (by just one of the species on just one of the planets) such a big deal? Valuing our lives with how others perceive it is a dangerous path as it moves the locus of control outside ourselves.

I think the charm of leaving a great legacy behind is because of a fear of death and longing for some kind of immortality with no rational justification.

Can I sell apps in the Exotel App Bazaar? What is the revenue-sharing arrangement?

I don't understand what your company actually makes. Is it "software to teach Indian Classical Music" or hardware or hardware design tools?

For making any decision, the following 5 steps should be followed:

(1) Decide various attributes, criteria or issues that are important to you

(2) Assign them weights. You must do this before (4) to eliminate bias.

(3) Generate a list of options (like list of candidates + NOTA + Abstaining). Ideally, you should complete this before getting into (4).

(4) Evaluate each option on each of the criteria on a scale of say 1 to 10.

(5) Calculate each option's overall score and pick the best one. If you have done steps (1) to (4) well, this is trivial and should be done automatically.

Step (2) and (4) will be the hardest. Individual MPs are often forced to go with party high-command's whips. Also, parties have no compulsion to stick to what they promised on their manifestos.

Don't ignore some non-obvious options, like, moving to another constituency/state/country that has better candidates.

Thank you Nilesh. Most of the stuff is applicable to Linux as well (and probably easier!). But if anyone has any suggestions to update article, so as it accommodates Linux, I am happy to update the blog post.

It'd be a disservice to your handle if there isn't a GNU/Linux version! :P

Someone should try "CTC no bar for the right company" in an interview. :)

Mathematics is just precise thinking and a lot of playing with ideas in that mode.
