You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind.” - Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi


NDEPENDENCE IS the freedom of the soul, a perception of the mind and a feeling understood by the heart. This freedom, perception and more importantly, this feeling is that of liberation, patriotism, self-dependence and other such things. When all such terms are put together and imposed upon the majority, it is a big responsibility on the youth of that nation and on those who create it Independence for youth means their mind should be at their creative best, they should not shy away from entrepreneurship and above all they should be free from paradoxical thought and have sense of what is right and what is wrong. Today, aren’t we all slaves of stress? 10-15 years ago, the word stress was rarely used. Now even a 4 year old suffers from stress. Why are we under the stress to achieve everything sidelining basic normalcy of life. Today if a person is stress free and happy that means, he is not doing anything. It is rightly said that the independence comes with responsibility. Since every action has equal and opposite reaction, we must weigh our actions well enough to ensure that it leaves no negative by-product or end-product. In other words, we must be forever conscious that in our pursuit to happiness, we don’t jeopardize anybody else’s happiness. In short, we must make responsible use of our independence. On national level, we are independent. On personal level , we should strive for independence from social expectations and unleash our creative mind and thoughts which does not come from a pre-conditioned mind.

Shiv Nadar Chairman and Strategic Manager HCL

Originally hailing from Moolaipozhi Village, Trichendur, Tutocorin District, Tamil Nadu, Shiv Nadar moved to Delhi in 1968. He worked as an engineer with DCM Ltd. But the entrepreneur in Shiv Nadar wanted to set up his own business. Therefore, he along with six of his colleagues launched a firm making office products like copiers. In late 1970s, when IBM quit India, Shiv Nadar's HCL stepped in to fill the vacuum. In 1982, HCL came out with its first computer. Today, HCL derives 80% of its revenue from computers and office equipment. HCL has also been spreading its global reach. Its Singapore subsidiary, Far East Computers, achieved a breakthrough in imaging technology, which, among other applications, enables computers to read handwritten tax returns. HCL has adopted innovative practices to achieve growth. In the U.S, a software subsidiary, HCL America, has reaped huge dividends by taking advantage of global time zones. Every morning, the company's Chennai office receives software assignments from the U.S, just after work stops there for the night. A team of Indian engineers, with salaries much lower than those of their American counterparts, complete the jobs and send them back in the evening.

In 2008, Government of India awarded Shiv Nadar with Padma Bhushan, the third highest civilian award for his contribution to IT industry. In 2007, Madras University awarded him honorary doctorate degree (D Sc) for his contributions in promoting software technology. Nadar was also recognized as E&Y Entrepreneur of the Year 2007 (Services). In October 2006, Shiv Nadar received an honorary fellowship from All India Management Association - AIMA

Shiv Nadar Truly believes that : “ If

you want to empower people, give them the tools. There is enough enterprenership in this country to take care of the rest.�

TEXT EDITOR IN LINUX Vi Editor (Visual Editor) The Linux “vi” Editor is a text based editor , useful for editing configuration files or creating plain text documents. The basic syntax of vi is # vi filename If the file exits , the file is opened & contents are displayed. If the file does not exist, vi creates it when the edits are saved for the first time.

Example1: Some of the useful option that you can use with vi # vi -m myfile (file is non-modifiable) # vi -R myfile (file is only modifiable by using the exclamation point :w! ) # vi -n myfile (do not use a swap file for backup (useful for floppies) # vi -r myfile (recover data from a swap file after a crash) # vi -x myfile (encrypt file when saving, decrypt file when editing) Vi editor works in three modes

Command mode

Insert mode

cursor movement change, delete, yank, put, search

type in new text Return to command mode with <ESC>

Ex mode Configuring, exiting, saving Search and replace

When you first enter vi, you will be in command mode. This is consider the “home” mode, the mode to which you will return when are otherwise not performing the some specific action. When in command mode, the keystrokes you enter do not become part of the text, but rather are interpreted as commands as shown above in example1. In insert mode , your keystrokes are actually data entered into you document, rather than the commands. The final mode is ex mode. In this mode, you can enter extended commands. Among the extended commands are saving, exiting and search & replace commands. To enter the ex mode, type “:”while in command mode. Cursor Movement in a File

h l k j

Left Right UP down

w b ( )

paragraph above paragraph below

The commands above will move the cursor about the file. There are many more cursor movements, but these are the most important & useful ones. The h, j , k & l movements move the cursor left, down, up & right. The w & b keys move forward and backward a word at a time. Deleting the text : Inserting and appending text x---> deletes text above the text i-->inserts text to the left of cursor X-->deletes text character on right of cursor I-->inserts in the beginning of line 20d -->deletes line 20 a-->appends text to right of cursor dd -->deletes current line A-->appends to the end of line D-->delete till end of current line Copy and pasting lines Saving yy--> copys the current line into buffer. :w-->saves the text does not quit 5yy-->copies 5 lines from the current line :wq!-->saves & quit the editor p--->pastes the current buffer :ZZ --->Save :q!-->Quit without saving Searching Undo last changes :%s/<search>/<replace>/g Search & Replace u--> undo last change. :/name -->Searches for the word name in the file U-->undo changes to the current line n-->n continues search forward N--->N searches backwards
