ಈ ನಿಘಂಟಿನ ವಿಷೇಶವೇನೆಂದರೆ ಇದರಲ್ಲಿ ಪದಗಳನ್ನು ಆಂಗ್ಲ ಅಥವಾ ಕನ್ನಡ ಎದಡರಲ್ಲಿಯೂ ಹುಡುಕಬಹುದು. ಎರಡೂ ಭಾಷೆಗಳ ಸಮಾನಾರ್ಥ ಪದಗಳನ್ನು ಉತ್ತರವಾಗಿ ಕೊಡುತ್ತದೆ!
ನೀವೂ ಒಮ್ಮೆ ಉಪಯೋಗಿಸಿ ನೋಡಿ!
"There is no specific agenda for this meeting. As usual, we'll just make unrelated emotional statements about things which bother us…"Recently, I saw an article about meetings in the GoogleWorld. Wow... It is not just the results of the company that is fascinating people but even the way they work! I have gotten email forwards showing images of Google offices, mails about their free food program, entertainment divisions, movies, etc. And now the meetings. A ticking stopwatch shows that the meeting should end before the stopwatch ticks down to zero. This helps keep the meeting organized and avoids unnecessary personal interactions and digressions. And the exclusivity of the manager and the difficulty of obtaining a meeting slot definitely helps!
Fulfilling a major election promise, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi Friday launched the distribution of free colour TV sets to the poor at Padappai near Chennai on the 98th birth anniversary of DMK founder C N Annadurai.
Speaking at the function, in which 25,245 colour TV sets worth about Rs 9 crore were given to the residents of Samathuvapuram (a colony of all communities and creeds) at Thundalkazhani village in Padappai in Kanchipuram district, Karunanidhi said Rs 750 crore had already been allocated in the state budget for distributing 25 lakh colour TV sets.
Spending Rs.750 crore and then applying for central aid citing famine! Hypocrites. Lets see what Jayalalitha offers people if they elect her the next time!
Look at some of the bookmarks in the figures. You will notice that they suggest alternate books of the same genre! How often have we wanted to read another book of the same genre! The suggestions are so relevant and have helped me make a good suggestion many a time. The bookmarks contain details about other books, their catalog numbers, genre and other information. And this is a service offered in a public library!
It is sometimes painful to think about our City Central Libraries(CCL) in Bangalore. The Government does invest a huge amount of money into them but the staff and public hardly care in caring for the precious books. Moreover, the rampant vandalism mentality in India hardly helps the cause of public libraries.
So next time you take out a book for reading, use a bookmark.
