This post is on a very special request from Saandeep. Well, you know him by the name of Sandy on my blog, by the name of Raj on his blog and by a very unique name of English-Scared on CE. His real name is Saandeep Sreerambatla and he is from Hyderabad. And do you know why the special request to post it today came in? Because it is his birthday today. Happy Birthday Sandy! Enjoy!
Can you tell me why do most people from Southern India have long names?
Southern names are long, but coming to Andhra Pradesh they are a bit shorter. In Chennai the names are even long. Since we have a surname and 2 or 3 names.
Here goes the process of naming a kid, you have grand ma, grandfather etc etc… So the naming will be modern and yet mixing of all their names. For example, I have my cousin whose grandfather name is Venkateshwarlu , father’s name is RamanaRao, and his name is Venkata Ramana Veeraju , and he has a surname also 🙂
When I was in Hyderabad about 6 years ago, I was told that to be eligible to act in Telugu movies, all you need is style, belly and a moustache. And there are people who will die for the film stars. Why are Telugus so fanatic about films?
That was true a 6 year ago not now! Now the situation has changed. Thanks to new directors who are making good movies to watch. As you said earlier it was as you said some style, a big belly and moustache will make you a hero. (Some one really ask you? if yes let me know the address 😛 )
And yes, people here die for film stars! We grow up like that. Most of the youth imitate hero’s in everything including smoking and talking style. We have fights against one group and other regarding who is great and who is No-1. Not only telugu’s most of the people are fanatic about films, there are many people who followed imitated Aamir’s Ghajini style! I myself did it 😛
Do you think QA is a great job profile? Why do Indians have to do QA whereas the westerners do all the good coding?
Frankly speaking I am one from the flock who didn’t know anything about software and entered into the field. I was given QA it was not my choice. But, after 4 long years working as a QA – Automation Engineer, now I believe that it’s a great profile. Since, QA will be necessary for all the products developed across the world. I dont think coding is good and QA is bad!
Everything is copy pasting 🙂 (This is what I hear from most of the Java Developers). Coming to my profile, I am an Automation Engineer, So I design framework. Write reusable functions and do scripting for all the possible scenarios (Both positive and negative) so it’s almost similar to coding!
And, a coding will be proved as great coding only after it is tested!!
If given a chance, do you think 4 Indians can come together and build some thing like a Google?
A big NO! Unless and until our education system or at least students study for the subject not for marks they cannot make it! There are exceptions, if the 4 you mentioning were like You, Biggie, Durga and Patty yes you can make it! As far as my interactions with people around, I only say that they need money at regular intervals (read monthly) by doing some sort of work without passion or interest! Its just because they have to make a living they do it! These people will not take any risk 🙂
The whole world is talking about the CWG mess. In my opinion, the common wealth games should not have been held in India. Not because we can not manage it. But because we are no longer a ‘common wealth’ of the British. What do you think?
They should not be held, yes because we cannot manage it! You have seen the news and big mess created by it! And coming to your question, We are no longer a common wealth of British! That’s true!!
Would you like to recommend some one for the interview here?
I recommend the most happening person on CE — Ankita.
