kuch yaadein……….
When gulli-danda and kanche (marbles) were more popular than cricket.
When we always had friends to play aais-paais (I Spy),
chhepan-chhepai and pitthoo anytime …
When we desperately waited for ‘yeh jo hai jindagi’
When chitrahaar,
vikram-baitaal, dada daadi ki kahaniyaan were so fulfilling …
When there was just one tv in every five houses and
When bisleris were not sold in the trains and we were worrying if
papas will get back into the train in time or not when they were
getting down at stations to fill up the water bottle …
When we were going to bed by 9.00pm sharp except for the ‘yeh jo hai
jindagi’ day …
When Holis & Diwalis meant mostly hand-made pakwaans and sweets and
moms seeking our help while preparing them
When Maths teachers were not worried of our mummys and papas while
slapping/beating us …
When we were exchanging comics and stamps and chacha-chaudaris and
billus were our heroes …
When we were in nanihaals every summer and loved flying kites and
plucking and eating unripe mangoes and leechis …
When one movie every Sunday evening on television was more than asked
for and ‘ek do teen chaar’ and ‘Rajni’ inspired us …
When 50 paisa meant at least 10 toffees …
When left over pages of the last years notebooks were used for rough
work or even fair work …
When ‘chelpark’ and ‘natraaj’ were encouraged against ‘reynolds and

When the first rain meant getting drenched and playing in water and
mud and making ‘kaagaj ki kishtis’ …
When there were no phones to tell friends that we will be at their
homes at six in the evening …
When our parents always had 15 paise blue colored ‘antardesis’ and 5
paise machli wale stamps at home
When we remembered tens of jokes and were not finding ‘ice-cream and
papa’ type jokes foolish enough to stop us from laughing …
When we were not seeing patakhes on Diwalis and gulaals on Holis as
air and noise polluting or allergic agents …

the list can be endless …
on the serious note I would like to summarise with …
When we were using our hearts more than our brains, even for
scientifically brainy activities like ‘thinking’ and ‘deciding’ …
When we were crying and laughing more often, more openly and more
sincerily …
When we were enjoying our present more than worrying about our future

When being emotional was not synonymous to being weak When sharing
worries and happinesses didnt mean getting vulnerable to the listener

When blacks and whites were the favourite colors instead of greys …
When journeys also were important and not just the destinations …
When life was a passenger’s sleeper giving enough time and
opportunity to enjoy the sceneries from its open and transparent glass windows
instead of some superfast’s second ac with its curtained, closed and
dark windows …
I really miss .. do u?
Live Life to the Fullest

No mind

1 Comment

 The mind has its limited uses. Use it.
When you are working in your office, I am not telling you to be a no-mind.
When you are working in your shop or in the factory,
I am not saying to be a no-mind.
I am saying be perfectly a mind.
Use the mind but don’t carry it continuously, twenty-four hours, day in and day out, with yourself. Don’t go on dragging it.
Use it as you use a chair.

Send and Receive SMS from PC

Leave a comment

SMS can be send from and receive in PC without the help of Internet.

Nowadays one of the most developed fields in mobile communication technology is SMS (Short Message Service). The Short Message Service (SMS) is the is the technology that allows to send and receive text messages to and from mobile telephones, Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs) and personal computers.
SMS is a type of an Instant Messaging (IM) type of communications service and it enables users to exchange messages in real time with other users. Users can use this technology and communicate with each other by typing with a PC, wireless device, cell phone, PDA. They can also use a combination of these devices to communicate. Cell-phone users can use the SMS to send short messages to other cell-phone users. Even retailers can use SMS technology to alert users of important information delivered directly to cell phones. And corporations can use any number of instant-message techniques to communicate directly with customers, vendors and employees. As a convenient and low-cost mobile communication technology, Short Messaging Service (SMS) is experiencing very rapid growth. It is reported that 700 million mobile phone users worldwide sent 20 to 30 billion SMS messages every month in 2001.

The SMS we receive from the mobile phone can be viewed in PC and can send message from PC. To obtain this a mobile phone must be connected to PC running with windows9x. The mobile must be connected to PC by a serial cable or by an USB cable and the PC must be installed with Visual Basic6.0. 
The SMS can send and received from the PC by using AT COMMANDS. AT COMMANDS are Attention Commands. With the help of AT COMMANDS the Battery level, Memory, Mobile Identification Number, Serial number, Network Strength can be identified. 
By giving AT + CMGL, the messages from the inbox of the mobile phone will be listed.

Also to check whether the mobile phone is connected to PC in correct manner
· Start–> Programs–>Communication–>HyperTerminal
· Go to Connection–>Description. In description, dialog box type name in name textbox and click OK button.
· Select the port in connect to dialog box and click OK button.
· A new window will be opened, in window type AT+CMGL=1 to set flag.
· Then by giving AT + CMGL, it retrieves messages from inbox of the mobile phone.


In Visual Basic6.0, open starndard.exe project. Also, select Microsoft Communication Control6.0 (mscomm control) from Components menu and also arrange textbox and command button as listed in the form


Dim cmd

Private Sub cmdsend_Click ()
cmd = "at+cmgs="""
cmd = cmd & Text1.Text & """, 129"
MS.Output = cmd & Chr(13)
MS.Output = text2.Text & vbCrLf
MsgBox ("SEND")
End Sub

Private Sub cmdview_Click()
On Error Resume Next
MS.PortOpen = True
Text3.Text = ""
MS.Settings = "2400, n, 8, 1"
MS.Output = "at+cmgr=1" & vbCr
buf = MS.Input
Text3.Text = Text1.Text & buf
Loop Until (InStr(Text3.Text, "OK")) > 0 Or (InStr(Text3.Text, "ERROR")) > 0
MS.PortOpen = False
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load ()
MS.CommPort = 1
MS.PortOpen = True
MS.Settings = "2400, n, 8, 1"
MS.Output = "at+cmgf=1" & vbCr
MS.PortOpen = False
End Sub

By running the VB form, the port 1is assigned when form is load. By clicking the view button we can list the SMS from the inbox of the mobile phone in the textbox present inside view frame, and in send frame by entering the mobile phone number in the textbox provided and type the message in appropriate textbox. Then by clicking the send button, the message will be send to proper mobile number that we entered.
With the help of AT COMMANDS, we can get MobileRevisionNumber, MobileIdentificationNumber, PhoneBookEntry, MemoryStatus, BatteryLevel, SignalStrength, and Message from Inbox, Outbox etc. Thus from this project we can send SMS from and receive SMS in the PC.


This project is tested for Samsung X100 and Samsung C100 mobile phones.


We are Unique

Nobody is superior, nobody is inferior,
but nobody is equal either.
People are simply unique, incomparable.
You are you, I am I.
I have to contribute my potential to life;
you have to contribute your potential to life.
I have to discover my own being;
you have to discover your own being.
