Arivina Alegalu – 2012 – You too can write

 An e-book on Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) that makes technology accessible to even those who are confirmed e-illiterate.

Arivina Alegalu (which literally means “Waves of Knowledge”) is conceived as a project that will kick off a series of materials written in Kannada not only about FOSS but also on various other aspects of technology and science. “All these materials will be written, edited, reviewed by people working or researching on the respective areas and released under Creative Commons.

Project was initiated in year 2011 to celebrate Indian Independence day in a unique way.  This e-book is a collection of 14 essays by young software professionals to educate laymen on all things FOSS.

The participants write their experience about science & technology , FOSS etc in Kannada. Selected articles will be posted on http://arivu.sanchaya.net from 1st August to 14th August. Finally on 15th August, all the articles will be released as an eBook under Creative Commons license to reach out to people who love learning and making use of technology.

Its again a time to revisit this project this year and the Team Sanchaya invites articles for 2012 issue.

Podcast – Chaitrodaya – GSS Kaavyavaachana

Rasika Baaro team had organized “Chaitrodaya – G S Shivarudrappa Kaavyavaachana” program on 27th December, 09 at Ravindra Kalakshetra. Renowned  names from various different fields attended this event and read out poems written by Raashtra Kavi G S Shivarudrappa to pay a much needed tribute. It was a great pleasure and treat. Got a chance to listen to few of my favorite poems written by GSS. GSS documentary was also played at the end of the event.

I got a chance to live tweet the happenings of this event and you can find the same on my twitter account http://twitter.com/omshivaprakash . I have tried my best to tag the postings with #chitrodaya and #kannada.

My HTC tattoo allowed me to record few moments of this event and here I present them for you. Listen to them and enjoy…
