HTML5 got official seal; it is time to change Microsoft’s strategy on IE

Here is good news for UI developer and designer. HTML5 is at last promoted for official Recommendation by WWWC (World Wide Web Consortium) .You may think that , Hey! I am using HTML5 for last couple of years and working fine in major 3 browsers (chrome, Firefox and Opera) so, what is great in this news?

Yes to win in browser ware, browser companies started inject HTML5 compatibility on browser though HTML5 elements were not standard officially but Microsoft’s IE never join in race. I think it is time for Microsoft to adapt HTML5 parsing capability in Internet Explorer.

On October 27, 2014 W3C developer announce that “For a lot of people, it is important to have a stable version of the specification that’s ratified in some way by a standard organization”. They expect HTML5 to soon became an international Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard as well.

Here is key areas where HTML5 focused.
  1.                 Less dependency on third part technology
  2.                 Rich set of tags and elements
  3.                 Perform validation in uniform way

The open web platform expects to focus on Security, streaming and push notification in HTML5.

It takes 1 hour to deposit amount in account in my village. Why ?

Yes, But it should not take more than 10 minutes in modern banking system. Though, I will not say Gramin bank(well known as co-operative in village side) are fully computerized yet.  However, it is my pleasure to see that they are using computer to keep records and updating passbook immediately after deposit or withdraw, I remember my father’s old handwritten passbook which he no longer use now a days and the book used to update by bankers after 3 days of transaction...Ha.Ha. You too may laugh by reading this line, but it is true. It used to take 3-4 days to reflect in passbook.

Let us come in our point of discussion.  Why it takes 1 hour to deposit some amount in our village bank? Oh, forgotten to tell that, I live in a remote village where transport became un-available after 7 O’Clock and people sleep at 9 O’Clock at night. It’s totally opposite than my urban life at Bangalore where people are busy whole night to earn bread. Generally when I stay at home I go to nearby bank for transaction and I see many old persons to wait in Bank by holding red and blue form. for why? Red form is to deposit amount and Blue one is to withdraw.
 As I said it’s remote village and the customers are generally old people(As the bank is not modernJ) and most of them are illiterate, even they cannot write their name. They wait and request other people to fill up the form and so that they can proceed banking operation.

I noticed, people are there who really help to one or two persons (not all, because they too busy and cannot help all) and the rest wait for some other who can fill up there form.
When I go to bank, generally many of them request me to fill up their form, I cannot Ignore, I cannot’ say NO. Don’t know why? However, I cannot. May be by God’s grace I have not a busy life. I try to fill as much as possible even sometimes all of them, till last person.

That is why it takes 1 hour for me to deposit. Ha..Ha.. But I was thinking government is introducing new schemes to educate our people, Is it right way to educate? when people know only how to sign nothing more than that.
Remembering one proverb. If you teach one man, one will educate. If you teach one woman, one family will educate.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star, How I wonder what you are ?

Travelling by train after long time, It has been 1 year I went to home for last time a Long time gap with my parents. It happens when you are working out of your state especially in IT Company. Now a day not writing technical article much, it is not that suddenly I dislike the job of writing otherwise how I am writing in moving train where it is tough to grip keyboard in vibration.  The reason behind not writing is something else, busy in another hobby, which I enjoy as like as writing. Some other day we will discuss the story. J
Oh, let us come in actual point, why I am writing this article.? “Accent is really needed to express word”, yes just experience in reality.

The subject seems very silly to you but I did not think on it much.  I never studied in English medium school in my early carrier.  This is not my regret, why?  Let me disclose.
When I was student of II or III class (primary school) few persons who were running English medium school at that time, came to our house and started to provoke my father to send me in their English medium school.

My father denied their proposal and said, Hey see, being a student of Bengali medium in my entire carrier I became English teacher (Yes, he is now retired English teacher) and if my son is really interested he could became anything by reading in Bengali medium. No one can stop him.

Yes, father’s prediction is partially correct. I never interested in English from my childhood but interested in technology and programming, especially when I started to learn “C” in my college days. My first love- “C” programming.
Oh, going out of topic, so as said I never studied in English medium so English poems for children like “Johni-Johni - Yes papa”, “Twinkle Twinkle little starts “were not much familiar to me at the same age.

I heard those, might be after 10 years later from its perfect age to study and only know the lines not inner meaning, without accent.
 From yesterday, one family is travelling with me in same compartment. There is one kid in this family (yes, kinder garden school going age). At morning, one uncle is talking to the kid and trying to listen English poem from her, which she has learned in school.
The kid was chanting but no accent. Uncle was teaching proper accent and it was nice to hear.
Jhoni –Johni  !  Yes papa  ..?
Eating sugar?
No papa…!!!
In addition, the Twinkle, Twinkle one.
Twinkle, Twinkle little star… How I wonder? What you are? – Yes how I can wonder what you are?

where ISRO , NASA  don’t know who you are ? haha..
I am sure; the little girl trying to copy uncle’s accent without understands the real meaning. When she will understand, maybe she too will write another blog in another train when it will rain outside and thunderstorm will slow down the train’s speed just like now.

 Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!

When the blazing sun is gone,
When there's nothing he shines upon,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, through the night.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!

In the dark blue sky so deep
Through my curtains often peep
For you never close your eyes
Til the morning sun does rise
Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are

Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are
