So, yes, I was a believer in God and used to think of him as a protector of all. I, as a Hindu, have pictures of our deities at home. I used to touch the deity's feet before leaving home asking him to take care of me and my family members on travel, provide us the intelligence to tackle the life etc.

I still remember that when I used to be alone at home at night with no electricity, I used to keep the deity's picture in my hands as to chase away the imaginary ghosts. While traveling...

  • In the cases where the derived classes may share the common functionality
    but with altogether "different" definitions, it makes sense to force the
    developers to create their own definitions for those common functions in
    concerned derived classes.
    This can be achieved by making the class "abstract".
  • A class is called an "abstract" class when it contains at least one "pure

Object oriented programming - Objects and Classes [C++]

Posted 11-15-2011 at 04:02 AM by TheIndependentAquarius
Updated 06-12-2013 at 01:31 PM by TheIndependentAquarius

Object oriented programming is all about representing the parts of
the problem statements as `objects` and having them interact with
each other (by calling function(s) of the object in question).

Every object has a type. The type of an object is often called a
`class` in object oriented programming. The class contains the list
of characteristics of the object and the functions which the object
is capable of performing.
We can have many...

The balloon man

Posted 06-26-2011 at 11:48 AM by TheIndependentAquarius
Updated 09-06-2012 at 01:22 AM by TheIndependentAquarius

Went for dinner at a local market today. It is a very busy market
especially on a Sunday night. While having dinner I watched 5 men
lettings off bunches of balloons in the air.
At first I thought they were some fun loving people who were making
