Karnataka SSLC Results

Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board will be announcing SSLC results this afternoon. Results are expected to be available on couple of websites listed below:-



Technology Expression

The above picture shows the website home page of Visvesvaraya Technological University of Karnataka which is accessible at .

Internet has been an another face for businesses and institutes for people today who are not only technical savvy as technology has been made reachable even to a novice. An university which prepares hundreds of thousands of engineers every year for our state and country, fails to educate its own government paid servants or service providers  about various technical aspects related to it’s website.

Why I say so? Just have a look at the home page and various sections. Jump into few more links and see the way it has been designed. Does it really look professional? I used to design such web pages using frontpage when I started learning HTML code 9-10 years back.

Examples are set by great people and institutes to spread the knowledge, awareness which leads to technological growth and it reflects in society. That is what I wanted to see when I browsed this university web page. An extensive info of the university, its operations, courses, projects done by engineers who passed out from the university, social benefits etc. But, I was disappointed by looking at the “immature” quality of the website.

My next question is, how much they might have spent on its development? Did any student get a chance to work on this as a final year project? Is it not explaining why the syllabus of the university is outdated?

I might want to hear few engineering students view on this in response.

Voice of Karnataka – Ritisha Padmanabh

Ritisha Padmanabh - Support this talent while she performs on Star Plus. Her voice is amazing.

An another song

I found the following lines on Rajahasan’s blog.

The only fear i have in mind is that she is from Karnataka and that is South India and I dont know how much support she will get from her people.We have seen in earlier reality shows that contestents from South India gets eliminated due to non participation from the people of there places.Let us hope that with a spate of reality shows these years things might change around this time and Rithisha gets full support from the people of her state and we as music lovers should also support good talent.

This was even pointed out by Kalpana on Sampada that is one more reason for me to put this on my blog. She also gave other examples where in south indian talents were not encouraged much by people and they were dropped out of the contest as they couldn’t get votes.  Thanks a ton Kalpana for pointing it out on a Kannada blog. I never get to watch TV shows that much. But these type of programs do encourage young generation across the country. We have to represent our states and Nation in all levels. I’m very happy to see a contestant from my state.  All the best for your future performances Ritisha.
