Leaving for HomeTown -- Karachi -- Pakistan

Inshalla i will back to Karachi Pakistan by this thursday for 5, 6 days. Hope to attend the Microsoft Pakistan Meeting.... and getting best out of it.

TextAlign Property of Windows.Form.Label Control

I was just to hit my head after strucking my hands in this buggy thing. What i want is proper alignment for Label control for English & Arabic, i am working on a mutlilingual C# desktop applicaiton. I tries a lot to manage it with by setting the property like this.lblFirstName.TextAlign = System.Drawing.ContentAlignment.TopRight ; But i didnt get the results, then i realize the buggy thing which is not allowing it to align is that AutoSize property of a label. If you make a control autosize = true, it wont allow you to align this. After getting it autosize false, it works fine...... Simple thing, but tricky, and even not mentioned in sites....forums..

Admi say dartay hoo? [Are you afraid of life?]

A peom which always remind me the event, the first time when i heard this peom. Though the event was not good, it was a sad day for all of us. We had a teacher in our BS (1st Semester). He left our class due to some internal poltics, before leaving the class he was quite sad & in hurt feeling, at that time he didnt told us the reason just recite this poem, which is a piece of art. Its really a truth which has to be deal, dealt,,, and always keep reminding us that why you are in fear from others, they are not GOD, they are same human being like you, so whom you get frightend. This is really classical. Get it here.

"Admi say dartay hooo ?"
http://www.ece.utexas.edu/~sheikh/poetry/rashid/zindagi_say_dartay_ho.html (Special Thanks to Ahmer Khan for sending me the link) Its classical. It is a piece of art of Shaikh Ayaz, a great Sindhi nationalist poet. Regards, Wajahat Abbas

Wasting time in reading books

Getting bunch of free time here in Muscat while living alone, i am wasting time in reading books, i purchased before coming Oman. These books are really interesting, though not related to technology but related to those who made technologies :). One book was the collection of articles posted on Reader digest a series as "Getting the best out of your life". The book has the same title, its really awesome, contain small articles from different scholars, visionary people.. I found it really great. I will be sharing this in next posts. Regards, VJ

Some really good finding (The Six Mistakes of Man)

The Roman philosopher and statesman, Cicero, wrote this some 2000 years ago: The Six Mistakes of Man 1. The delusion that personal gain is made by crushing others. 2. The tendency to worry about things that cannot be changed or corrected. 3. Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it. 4. Refusing to set aside trivial preferences. 5. Neglecting development and refinement of the mind, and not acquiring the habit of reading and studying. 6. Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.
