What does a woman want from a man most?


The Story


King Harshavardhan was defeated in the battle.

He was handcuffed and taken to the winner king.At that time the winner king was in a happy mood.

The king kept a proposal for Harshavardhan and said, “ If you can answer me a question correctly I will return your kingdom or else leave aside the kingdom, you shall have to remain a prisoner for the rest of your life in my country.”

“The question is, ' what does a woman want from her man?' You will get a month of time to give the answer.”

Harshavardhan accepted the King's proposal.



He went to various places and met many scholars, preachers, priests, dancers,prostitutes, housewives,maids and many more to know what exactly a woman wants from a man.

If someone said she wants ornaments, the other would say she wants children from her man, another said beautiful house and family, yet another said she would like to have the throne etc. etc.

Harshavardhan was not satisfied with these answers at all.

The month was about to end and, Harshavardhan was unable to get a satisfactory answer.

Then someone informed that far away,in the neighboring state there lives a witch. Only she can give proper answer to this question. Hungry for an answer, Harshavardhan wasted no time. He along with his friend Siddhiraj went and met the witch.

When he asked the witch for an answer, she replied, “ I will give you the correct answer only if your friend agrees to marry me.”

The witch was old and extremely ugly. He didn't want this injustice to happen with his friend.

But to save his friend and the king of his country, Siddhiraj gave his consent to marry the witch and the marriage happened.

The witch then answered Harshavardhan and said,
“A woman wants to be independent so that she can take decisions on her own.”

Harshavardhan liked the answer. He went back to the king with the prized answer. The king liked the answer, and so kept up his promise of both releasing Harshavardhan and returned his kingdom.

On the other side, the witch on her wedding night said to her husband, “You have a pure heart. You have sacrificed yourself to save your friend, so, I want to tell you something.”

“Everyday, I look ugly for 12 hours and extremely beautiful for the next 12 hours. Tell me, which look would you like to accept.”

Siddhiraj said, “ That is your decision dear. I have accepted you as my wife,so, I would like you anyway. ”

Hearing this, the witch transformed into a beauty and said, “ You have allowed me to take the decision, therefore, from now I shall always remain beautiful.”

“Actually this is my real look. I had changed my appearance into ugly witch for the ugly people all around.”

Ten Commandments of Egoless Programming

We are nothing but the values we carry. All through my life thus far, I tried to influence people around me with the virtues I value. Thanks to some good reading habits I had inculcated, and the fortune of being in good community of peers and mentors alike, I managed to have read some real good books. This post is about the 10 commands of egoless programming in Weinberg's book. I shall explain the commandments based on my experience here. So very many decades ago, Gerald M. Weinberg authored  The Psychology of Computer Programming . In it, he listed The Ten Commandments of  Egoless Programming , which remains relevant even today for us as not just programmers but as team-members. Weinberg is regarded as a pioneer in taking a people-centric approach to computing, and his work endures as a good guide to intelligence, skill, teamwork, and problem-solving power of a developer. When they appear to inspire and instruct, we find that they can apply to just about every business area, and e

Should I buy refurbished laptop from Amazon?

This post is based on my experience with amazon.in and guess it to be true on all other platforms as well. At least you can check out and verify for these pointers before you make that decision to buy renewed/refurbished laptop on Amazon with your hard earned money. I see this question propping up in several forums and on many different occasions. In the recent past, I had my 5 year old dell laptop that gave up because its motherboard failed. One of the options that I had in my mind was to re-use the HDD and the 16GB DDR4 RAM of that old laptop in the one that I purchase next as secondary.  I had come to a conclusion that it is not worth buying a refurbished/renewed laptop at all. Why? For the following reasons, most of which I see as BIG #RedFlags: You got to remember that Amazon provides a platform for 3rd party sellers to sell their products as well. So in your search for refurbished laptops you wouldn’t want to choose some random 3rd party seller who Amazon doesn’t endorse. You cou

Multi-tenant Architectures

  Multi-tenancy Application Deployment Architecture could be modeled in 4 broad ways: Separate Apps & Separate Databases Shared Apps & Shared Databases Separate Apps & Shared Databases Shared Apps & Separate Databases There is no right or wrong here. It's about choice and consequence that you should consider taking into your business context and constraints. In this post I intend to jot down a some key points to keep in mind for each of these multi-tenant architecture. These are more of quick notes for my quick reference, a cheat-sheet of sorts when I have to make choices. And I guess this can come handy to you too in your wise decision making. Separate Apps & Separate Databases Easiest to implement from development and deployment stand-point. Just automate the deployment infrastructure for every tenant for quick set-up. Most expensive of all the models from infrastructure cost stand-point. Relatively longer deployment t
