I am sure there are some amazing photographers in our midst, but I am not sure how many of them will see this post and reply. So, I will give it my go. Disclaimer: These are my views only.

I will reiterate something that you must have glazed over countless times while doing research in your quest for a DSLR. Just having a good camera/lens will not get you amazing photos. A lot of it is in the eye, but that is what not I am stressing upon too. With any gear, you need to experiment with its functionalities. I live in a city that is teeming with tourists most of the year. Most of them have cameras that look like they'd sprain their necks. But when I look closely, I see many of them shooting in auto mode. If you are going to be that guy, then refrain from spending so much.

That said, my apologies if you do not fall in the above category and are willing to experiment and understand the 'Manual' mode. Now, get some things straight:

  1. Kit lenses are mostly not-so-awesome. So, it is better if you buy Camera 'Body Only' and choose lenses separately.
  2. Choosing Nikon or Canon is totally your choice. Both make amazing cameras. One thing you might want to consider is the brand your friends have. This gives you a choice of borrowing lenses.
  3. Unless you are into specific kind of photography viz. Sports, Macro, Low Light, you just need a basic walkaround lens to begin with. And maybe one to shoot nice portraits with.
  4. My experience of third party lenses is that they are not so bad, and in most cases really good - while being a lot cheaper.

    I am a Canon 550D guy and nearly 4 years after it's purchase I am rarely tempted to upgrade. I have shot with more expensive cameras too, and beyond doubt they are awesome... but the kind of jump that you make from a basic P&S to a camera like 600D, you should not expect from 600D to say 60D, even though the price almost doubles.

    So, looking at your budget I'd suggest you go for Canon 600D with 18-55 kit lens (I'm amazed it is this cheap, even the 'Body only' price on Amazon is higher) or Canon 600D with 18-135. Do get the 50 mm Prime lens for sure. You'll be glad you got it.

    Another thing I would like to tell you from my (not that vast) experience set is that lighting makes world of a difference in photography. So if you are going to be serious about it, try and invest in a decent flash soon. By decent, I mean a flash whose head can be tilted for bouncing the light around, and one that can enable you to use it 'off the camera'.

    Whateve comes, do not get intimidated. The best camera is the one that you have in your hand when you are about to capture a precious moment. Happy shooting!

So here's my take: I think introversion is a very misunderstood concept in general, not just in India. Case in point, another comment here says "You aren't an introvert, you do have some close friends" - that is NOT what being an introvert entails.

Being an introvert means that you are energized by being by yourself and drained quickly in large groups. Introverts function best when they are with a small handful of familiar friends - your energy will not drain as quickly and it can be very fulfilling to even go out with them.

As an introvert myself, growing up here I faced a lot of the same problems that you seem to be facing, but I educated myself on what it really means to be an introvert, and I embraced it proudly. I have no problem telling off haters - own who you are and hold your head up high. If people are scolding you for this - they are very misguided, and may not be the right kind of people you want to be friends or even acquaintances with. Do not feel pressured to always be outside, but on the flip side, don't completely close yourself from society. Be comfortable with saying no when you are feeling particularly drained, but definitely keep in touch with people you enjoy spending time with, and be open to meeting new people as well.

Another point here, and I may be generalizing, but introverts tend to enjoy more conceptual or abstract topics of conversation than an extrovert who is energized by social conversation and gossip. This is not a rule, there are obviously people on both sides and in the middle as well, but I've noticed this tendency. My advice here would be to find what you are very passionate about, educate yourself as much as you can about that, and find people with similar interests.

At parties or functions, it helps to find a smaller group with people you share interests with and find a spot that's not very noisy to have a more meaningful conversation than the ones that normally take place at these kinds of events. Introverts tend to be very sensitive to external stimuli like noise or lights which make it difficult to keep up when there are many people talking all at once.

I would recommend the book "Quiet: The power of introverts in a world that can't stop talking" by Susan Cain

Best of luck, man

No side effects, just use it as it is intended. Definitely noticed benefits, but I also avoid junk/fried food and colas and try my best to eat healthy stuff.

I use it with one spoon of creatine, one big spoon of peanut butter and a banana sometimes. You need to drink lots of water if you're consuming creatine. Yeah, I have noticed some improvements, my shirts are getting tighter from forearms and I can't fold my arms in front of my chest without tearing my shirts.

I use ON whey protein, it's considered to be the best one out there in terms of mixability, results and everything else.

One 30 grams scoops has like 24G protein and everything else is negligible. Calories is around 120, so if you can easily get a low calories high protein diet with one scoop or more. When you are lifting heavy weights, your muscles will break, to repair and build new muscles protein is necessary. Since whey protein is almost 90 percent protein that is in liquid form, it gets easily absorbed helping in muscle growth.

Okay, that's wonderful!

I did some more research and I really feel that you don't need the drill bit adaptor.

The Torque Setting adaptor would be a much better option, I feel.

At the end of the day, it's your choice and decision. I was glad to be of help!

Sample these:

The book Asura:Tale of the Vanquished: The Story of Ravana and His People, by Anand Neelakantan, also available in Hindi, Kannada, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu and Italian, which looks at the story from an alternative i.e. Asuras' perspective.

The book is one amongst the 2012 Crossword toppers, says Excerpts from the book-description page:

> The book has aimed to demystify the blunders done by the Deva clan, which is represented as conventional and prejudiced. Also, it throws light on the liberation enjoyed by the Asuras.

> Descriptions about Vamana and Mahabali are given along with the meeting of Jataya and Ravana. Also, described is the Agni Pareeksha underwent by Sita. An unusual angle is shown about the human emotions. A new but logical outlook is thrown at the people in regard to the varied practices that were witnessed in this epic story. Also, the book makes people consider the fact that the Brahmins, back then, followed unreasonable practices.

Ravana worship seems to be common among Gond tribals in Chhattisgarh also; read this story:

> Ravan is revered in this part of world, Gond tribals in Gadchiroli, parts of Chhattisgarh offer prayers on Vijayadashmi

Also this:
> Celebrating Ravan: As the rest of the country burns effigies of Ravan, the writer visits a Gond village in Maharashtra where the ten-headed king is worshipped as god, The Hindu, Oct-2015

Besides, if you are a history/literary buff, read this logical take on Ramayana, from 1910s, titled 'The Morality of the Ramayana' by Mr. T. Ponnambam Pillai, from the The Tamilian Antiquary 1907-14 archives. It's in English.

Check out Audio-Technica ATH-M20x seems the best you can get in mid-range from the reviews.

You can check out Sony products as well. They tend to last longer, unless you're going for their basic models. Cousin has [Sony MDR-XB450] ( Running fine since almost two years, tbf I found it better than Sennhieser HD 202.

Sony Extra Bass MDR-XB550AP looks good as well.

Pimsleur Hindi is a nice place to start. It's a very aural way of learning and while it does include some reading, it can be done without it. The library system in my state had it.

Rupert Snell's books on learning Hindi, such as this one are an excellent choice thereafter. It starts off with both devanagari and roman script, and after a few chapters eliminates the roman.

I think it's possible to learn Hindi without reading devanagari but it's hard. I personally hit a level I couldn't go beyond until I really got devanagari down. The language can be spelled correctly with a modified roman alphabet but it doesn't work right somehow. If you were studying Hindi in university you'd learn both devanagari and Urdu scripts.

My suggestion is that you get a little kids book for learning Hindi letters, one where it shows you how to create the characters by tracing them over and over again. Once I worked with that book for a couple months I could read devanagari easily and things became a lot easier. This is an example from Amazon india. They might send to the US if you're not in India, otherwise I'm in India now and could send a book in the post if you want.

BJP lost in Karnataka, UP, West Bengal, NE and many other states. There was no AAP to cut votes of BJP. Why BJP lost?

AAP has chance and a very solid chance but only if you give your precious vote to completely clean candidates which you can find only in AAP.

May be I'm not clear enough. Spend Rs. 99 for your country and read this if you care. You'll understand why we should change the present system and root out both Congress and BJP.

u/nakkamukka · 1 pointr/india website has a good list on Indian history based on its readers response.

Following are the books in no particular order. I personally recommend India:A History - John keay

  • Discovery of India by Jawaharlal Nehru
  • Freedom at Midnight by Dominique Lapierre and Larry Collins
  • The Argumentative Indian by Amartya Sen
  • India after Gandhi: The History of the World’s Largest Democracy by Ramachandra Guha
  • The Wonder That Was India by A L Basham
  • The Great Indian Novel by Shashi Tharoor
  • A Corner Of A Foreign Field by Ramachandra Guha
  • The Last Mughal: The Fall of a Dynasty: Delhi, 1857 by William Dalrymple
  • India: A history by John Keay
  • Alberuni’s India by Alberuni (Translated by Edward C. Sachau)

(1) Read the book Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy
This is a very useful book that will teach you how to fight depression and anxiety. (And yes, you are depressed). It teaches you the basic of cognitive behaviour therapy - a therapy that is inspired by Buddhist philosophies (but don't worry, it has a very scientific approach and no religion in it). And best of all, it does work and is easy.

(2) Vote for the Congress.
If the economy is bad, you can forget about getting a job. Our current PM is a chaiwallah with some (fake?) correspondence degree from some open university, likes the high flying life and feels it is ok to wear 15 lakh+ suit with his name on it, and is more concerned about the welfare of cows than human beings.

On the other hand - Dr. Manmohan Singh (who studied under a street light as a child) got his Bachelor and Masters in Economics from Punjab University (I think he was a gold medallist for both too); did further higher studies in Economics at University of Cambridge and later, D. Phil. from University of Oxford (2) P. Chidamabaram - Bachelor in law from Madras Law College, Masters from Loyola College, and MBA from Harvard Business School. (3) Shashi Tharoor - BA History, St. Stephens College, Masters from Tuft University, US, and did his Ph.d by the age of 22. (4) Jairam Ramesh - B. Tech from IIT, Master's from Carnegie Mellon University, Ph.d at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (5) Mani Shankar Aiyer - BA Economics from St. Stephens College, and BA and MA from University of Cambridge (5) Sachin Pilot (BA, St, Stephens, MBA from Wharton School of Business, Officer, Indian Army), (6) Salman Khurseed (Studied at Oxford, and is also Lecturer at Oxford), (7) Jyotiraditya Madhavrao Scindia (BS Economics, Harvard University, MBA, Stanford Business School) (8) Jitin Prasada ( B.Com. Sri Ram College, MBA) (9) Rahul Gandhi - discontinued from Harvard university after his first year due to the assassination of his father Rajiv Gandhi, and later did his BA from another american college for security reasons. Completed his M.Phil from Trinity College, Cambridge ... and so on are the kind of people you want to run this country. Not chaiwallahs, cow herders or pretend swamiji's ...

(Sorry about point 2 ... just couldn't help myself ;).

Regarding the air filter masks, i went with this, after reading the reviews from this and this.

The first reviews led me to the importance of N95 and other certifications. The second from its Amazon product page tells me that people who have used it are generally satisfied with it. You can also see that it is much cheaper in the US.

Hope this helps and i'm open to other recommendations. What are you guys buying/considering?

u/kevinkeller11 · 3 pointsr/india

For an overview of India's history, I'd recommend India: A History by John Keay.

Midnight's Descendants also by John Keay. This covers South Asia's history since Independence. I prefer this over Ramachandra Guha's India After Independence (I've read both), as Guha comes across as a Nehru fanboy in his book (IMO).

Blood Telegram about the 1971 war.

Since you mentioned South Indian history, The Illustrated History of South India by Nilakanta Sastri. It's quite old, and you may find the text a bit dull, but this is the best book about South India I could find.

Kaoboys of R&AW by B. Raman. For a behind-the-scenes look at India's intelligence agencies.

I would suggest you going for Sennheiser CX-180. They are available on amazon for around Rs 700. Excellent sound quality, better than most of the earphones you will find under Rs 1000 range. I know they are over you budget but you'll be getting 2 years of warranty, that means if they stop working, just go to the service center or courier them and they will replace it on the spot.

I have been using then for over an year now and because of my extensive and rough use, one of the earphone always stop working after like 4-5 months and they simply replace them, without any hassle. Make sure that you have sennheiser service center nearby. They have like 3-4 service centers all over the india(pretty low!)

I will recommend the following book.

From what I understood reading Upanishads, the message is very similar to that in Bhagvad Gita. Our actions are driven by our senses and the selfish desires they drive. The main message of both the books is to overcome your selfish desires and do what is good for the society. The only way to figure out what is good for the society is by making yourself wiser and meditation is emphasized as a way of understanding yourself and your relation to the world. Only then you can figure out what you can do to improve the society you live in. There is no single way of achieving this. It depends on your personality. You can improve the society by doing social work, acquiring knowledge, worship, by going in to administrative services and working for betterment of the society etc.

I cannot emphasize this enough that this is how I interpreted it after reading the books a couple of times. I am not an expert.

You can get really decent ones in 500 to 700 range. Something like this:

The next level of earphones will be in 1500 to 2500 range. This is great:

I personally would not spend more than 2500 on earphones.

u/black-0ut · 3 pointsr/india

I have been using this since last year. Battery backup is really good and charges real fast. Can be used corded as well as cordless. Highly recommend it. Buy two blades one for pubes one for shave. Before this I had one more trimmer so I never had to buy a new blade for myself. I think you can get them on Amazon.

  • Join a company with a "technical ladder".

  • Technical architect this needs telling people they are wrong, so it won't work for you.

  • Technical consultant / contractor -- equal or higher pay, if you can demonstrate your skill.


  • big companies have research divisions and positions - "Centres of Excellence".

  • Some software companies have "documentation" jobs.

  • become a system administrator (but you have to take a lot of whining from cranky / lazy users - who are often amazing developers themselves)


    If hunger and/or poverty can change your inner programming (survival mode kicks in) then you can do freelancing / consulting and develop people skills where you don't order people, but you negotiate / bargain with them - because if you don't do that well, you don't get paid at all. This is the last option for someone like you, but it exists.

Company provides 2 years replacement warranty and moreover they do the replacement genuinely.

Ps. Not meant for rough and tough use as the wire is delicate.

Home thought of buying some stuff I have been meaning to..

What do you guys think about this trimmer(I hardly go for a clean balde-wala shave, mostly maintain a 3-day look):

u/TheWyzim · 1 pointr/india

I’m the same, I have never shaved in my life. I had a scare in my childhood which makes me irrationally afraid using blade on my skin. I use a trimmer with 0.5 setting and get a close trim. It looks like third day beard after a close shave. Just buy a Philips trimmer and trim using comb over it and you’ll be good to go. Watch videos if you need help.

u/SabashChandraBose · 1 pointr/india

Wait, that's the premise of Asura a pretty amateur piece of fiction, but nonetheless advocates the same idea.

u/Hemi_demisemiquaver · 5 pointsr/india

Try La Shield.
It's slightly more expensive than usual ones in the market, but it was dermatologist-recommended, isn't greasy at all, and a tiny dollop is enough to smear all over your face, so it ends up lasting longer. I used to use Lotus matte finish SPF 40 before, which is pretty decent and cost less than this, but after using this, I've not gone back to it.

> Also, since you are so sure not a single Southerner thinks Ramayan is a story of North v South

Never said this. Learn to read ffs.

There is a book called Asura: Tale of the vanquished ( which tries to tell a reinterpret ramayana from the perspective of Ravana. By the way, I have read it. It is much more relevant to the discussion rather than antiquated sources you found which primarily tell about how in the 19th/20th century, various people started their interpretation of Ramayana for political purposes including one where the britishers were the 'red monkeys' and depended primarily on Aryan invasion theory with Rama being Aryan and south Indians being dravidians. AIT is in the dumps.

Given you are asking, most of South Indian Hindus do not believe Ramayana as a war between South and North (I would like to say 80%-90% but I don't believe any one ever did such a survey and it is frankly a waste of time). Major hindu pilgrim places in Andhra Pradesh/Telenagana include Tirupati and Badrachalam.

Ramayana and Mahabharat have been interpreted and retold from many perspectives from Sita, Bheem, Arjun, Eklavya, Karna etc and these have come from various parts of India (mostly from Maharashtra and South India if you are interested and these are just the ones I read). They are fun to read and enrich the story. In fact, the Mahabharat that is played on TV is something that was collated from multiple sources in recent history - 19th century I think. These are great epics with a depth and it is a disgrace that all you could get from these is that Valmiki is racist.
