लोकतंत्र का चौथा स्तम्भ: हिंदी दिवस विशेष : कोई खतरा नहीं है हिन्दी को

लोकतंत्र का चौथा स्तम्भ: हिंदी दिवस विशेष : कोई खतरा नहीं है हिन्दी को: हर साल हिन्दी दिवस आता है, चला जाता है। हर साल सरकारी दफ्तरों में, स्वायत्त संस्थाओं में हिन्दी को लेकर कुछ सभाएँ हो जाती हैं। बैंकों में कुछ बातें हो जाती हैं। पब्लिक सेक्टर संस्थानों में कुछ हिन्दी-हरकत हो जाती है। कवि सम्मेलन टाइप कुछ हो जाता है। हिन्दी की समस्याओं पर चिंता कर ली जाती है।

हिन्दी राष्ट्रभाषा बताई जाती है जबकि वह राजभाषा मात्र है और राष्ट्रभाषा व राजभाषा में भेद है। हिन्दी प्रेमी लोग उसे राष्ट्रभाषा ही कहते हैं। तकनीकी तौर पर वह भारत की एक भाषा है और राजभाषा होने के कारण उसे केंद्र सरकार का एक हद तक समर्थन प्राप्त है। पब्लिक सेक्टरों में हिन्दी अधिकारी होता है वह इसीलिए। उनके दफ्तरों में 'हिन्दी राष्ट्रभाषा है', 'हिन्दी में कामकाज करना चाहिए' ऐसे बोर्ड भी लगे होते हैं। कही-कहीं महात्मा गांधी का या अन्य किसी महापुरुष का हिन्दी को लेकर दिया गया वक्तव्य भी लिखा होता है। लेकिन हिन्दी वालों का रोना फिर भी नहीं थमता। हर हिन्दी दिवस पर हर कहीं हिन्दी के बिगड़ते रूप पर विद्वान चिंता करते हैं। लोकल प्रतिभाओं को इनाम आदि देते हुए वे दो-तीन बातें कॉमन कहते हैं : 'हिन्दी में अंगरेजी आ रही है। यह मीडिया ने किया है, बाजार ने किया है। यह हिन्दी साहित्यिक हिन्दी नहीं है। हमारे बच्चे हिन्दी को पसंद नहीं कर पा रहे हैं। हिन्दी वाले अपने बच्चों को अंगरेजी स्कूलों में पढ़ाते हैं, और हिन्दी की चिंता करते हैं। यह चिंता झूठी है, इत्यादि।' ऐसी चिंताओं को हर कहीं सुना जा सकता है।

हिन्दी को खतरा पैदा हो रहा है। यह थीम शाश्वत सी बन चली है। लेकिन तथ्य एकदम अलग बात कहते हैं। तथ्य यह है कि हिन्दी लगातार बढ़ रही है, फैल रही है और वह विश्वभाषा बन चली है। उसकी 'रीच' हर महाद्वीप में है और उसका बाजार हर कहीं है। हमारी फिल्मों के गानों के एलबम अमेरिका, अफ्रीका, एशिया, योरप कहीं भी मिल सकते हैं और फिल्में एक साथ विश्व की कई राजधानियों में रिलीज होती हैं।

Google Celebrates Roger Hargreaves 76th Birthday with Several Doodles

Today when I opened Google.com to search something. I found a new colorful Doodle of Mr. Forgetful. I noticed, the mouse hover note, as Google said: '76th Birthday of Roger Hargreaves: Mr. Forgteful'. I searched what I was looking for and closed the window.

Then after some time for some other search I opened Google. & surprise!! This time there was a different Google Doodle for celebrating the Birthday of Roger Hargreaves. Very soon I figured out that each time you open Google home page there is a new doodle with a different toon character created by Mr. Roger Hargreaves & this time Google has made a doodle for each of the characters created by Mr. Roger.

Following are few of the Google Doodles I found with every refresh:

Google Doodle seems to have tried to cover all the characters of Mr Men & Little Miss Series.

Evolution of Open Source Development

Evolution of Open Source

Richard Stallman, an employee at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), became involved with open source software in 1971. In the early days, user groups included the SHARE group for IBM 701 and the DECUS group for Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC). At that time, operating systems (such as UNIX) provided academics and researchers a template for their work.

In 1983, Richard Stallman launched the GNU project to develop an OS with the source code available to the public. Soon after the project, he coined the phrase "free software" and founded the Free Software Foundation.

The Linux Kernel, developed by Linus Torvalds, was released as source code in 1991. When Stallman and his team integrated the Linux code with their work, the first free OS was born. The software created from this code union, commonly known as Linux or GNU/Linux, is still available today.

In 1993, both GNU/Linux and 386BSD were reasonably stable platforms. Since then, 386BSD has evolved into a family of BSD based operating systems (NetBSD, FreeBSD and OpenBSD). The Linux Kernel is still evolving and is being used in many variants like Debian, Red Hat, Suse, Mandrake and Ubuntu.

Over the years, many open source products have developed a niche in the industry and have been well accepted in many organizations. Some of the popular products in use today are Apache, Perl, MySQL, GNOME, KDE and Mozilla. Companies of all shapes and sizes are exploring new economic models to succeed in the highly competitive software market. Emerging markets like Russia, India, Mexico and China have embraced open source and the scope has widened to social networking and Web2.0.

Comment on Who came out ahead in Microsoft-Yahoo deal?

I just posted a comment on one of the posts at Matt's blog: Who came out ahead in the Microsoft-Yahoo deal? and then thought this comment is bit too long and a bit interesting and should get a place here on my blog as well ;-) lol so here you go (Oh, yes, here I can discuss bit more than in that comment):

I Just don't understand why the hell most of the people over here started voting Google, without even having that as an option. Hey you die hard Big G lovers.. Don't you see Matt didn't put Google in the vote options, STOP flattering him with irrelevant votes. (Yes, I love the G too, but that doesn't make sense to move out of the topic!!, however I'll also move off the topic a bit at the end of my comment :P )

Yes for me Both of them the Microsoft and the Yahoo! are the winner, at some points MS wins and on some other Yahoo! However I've voted here for Microsoft, because at first they look to be the winner, but when you see into deep you see Yahoo is also going to get benefits. But I really feel if they keep improvisations and come together with some drastic changed plans on the search advertisement front as well, It may be a threat to Google however, not in near 3-4 years, but surely after that, (however I know Google never sits dumb, so there G may strike again :D )

And yeah those suckers who are talking about the search results, let me tell you, most of the people I know have regularly started using Bing n its not that they stopped using Google, but see what I'm trying to tell you that Bing has started intruding the market of Big G.

Also even I've noticed the results on some front Bing gives more relevant results than Google, meanwhile its true that Bing is not yet as intelligent and wide as Google. I mean if you ask Google about the current time in New Delhi, It will tell you the Current time and then the other relevant results, But Bing has not grown up yet to show you the time, yet they show the relevant results as well. Common you know Bing is still a baby, but yeah it has born with some intelligent so just watch it grow (if MS fead it with the right food :D )

ah, what I wrote this long comment? that I generally don't do :( , hmm so now I plan to post it into my blog post as well ;-)(yeah, 'm a lazy blogger :P ) !!
