'Sati' by Jay Krishna | Sati Radhika | Mahapurusha Srimanta Sankardeva | Koibartas | 2018 | Digital Infotainment


Sati 
A Story of Trust, Belief and Faith.


By Jay Krishna Das



Adaptation based on Sakrapani Boiragi. The flow of the river in Tembuwani from the Mighty Brahmaputra destroyed the crops and livelihood of the locals living there. This disrupted the lives of the people, who faced a lot of torment in the hands of the river. Then Ketai Kha, Bura Kha, Ram Kha, Gabhoru Kha, Sriram Kha, Haram Kha, Rup Kha, Biram Kha, Shrihori Kha, and all the renowned Borbhuyan’s gathered and devised a plan to construct a dam to block the flow of the river. For the initiative, they started gathering skilled work force from the South, all the way from Samdhara to Kopilimukh. And from the North, from Routa to Hinguri. After everyone had gathered, they began the work. They tried their level best to obstruct the flow of the river. But it was too much for loosely packed embankment to handle, and it eventually gave away, to the force of the river. This continued for a couple of times. But each time they were bound to face defeat. 
After experiencing repeated failure of being unable to block the flow of the river. A committee was set up and Mahapurush Srimanta Sankardeva was invited as the guest of honour. Mahendra Kundoli, Ananta Kundali, Govinda Mishra, Ara Mishra, Gora Mishra, Chadra Saraswasti, Ram Saraswati, Sandhi Saraswati, Thengal Saraswati, Bagi Bhattacharjya, Hori Bhattacharjya, Tarka Bagikh, Bhanu Bagikh, Kobiratna, Bidyaratna, Hemratna, Pancharatna, Chandrakhori, Surjyakhori, Bijoykhori, Ratnakhori, Ratna Bharati and many renowned Pandits were also invited to share their views.

Srimanta Sankardeva being the host of the event, shared his view and told everyone present, that when and only when they’re able to find a woman, who is Sati (One who is pure) only then that they would be able to construct an embankment on the river. All the married couples responded by saying that their wives were Sati and that they would be able to help them. Seeing everyone’s claim about their wives. Srimanta Sankardeva gave them a task, and instructed them to go home and tell their wives that, only the one who is able to collect water from the river Brahmaputra with a Polo (A sort of basket made of bamboo), can prove herself of being Sati. 
Reaching home each man told his wife regarding the misfortune they were facing and that only a woman who is Sati, can help them in their ordeal. Each of their wives responded by boastfully claiming their right of being Sati, and set out to complete the task given to them. But none were able to do it. They exclaimed that it was impossible to bring water in a polo. Being disheartened all the men returned the very next day, and showed grimace of their claims about their wives, and how they reacted after being told about the task.
Seeing everyone’s utter disappointment. Srimanta Sankardev decided to tell them a tale from the Skondha Puran, of a king in Kalinga, who once had an immense headache, and was suffering badly, so much that he declared that whoever is be able to cure him would receive half of his kingdom as reward. Hearing this many renowned doctors from near and far gathered in the kingdom and provided their remedy to the king. But all went in vain and none were able to do anything. 

MacBook Pro Drawbacks | Intel Kabylake | MacBook Pro | Apple | Digital Infotainment

Hey guys, its going to be almost a month now since I purchased the MacBook Pro 13 inch 2017, and as I promised, here is a comprehensive review of the new MacBook Pro 13 inch 2017 from Apple. Im just going to mention the things that I liked and didn't like about the device. As the specs and rest of the details I had mentioned in my earlier review.

1. Memory: As I am a first time apple user, some of the concepts of how Apple manages and utilises its memory(Both RAM and HDD) was new to me. And this is the part that I found quite annoying about the device. The HDD of the comp is divided in sections(System,Applications,Media,Others and Purgeable), and it is this purgeable concept that keeps getting in my way. The files which are loaded into the machine are not deleted even after you remove them from the trash can. It stays in a special memory location which is inaccessible to the user. moreover Mac OS stores a lot of the stuff you do as caches in the memory, which in the long run consumes a lot of the computers memory. and this can get frustrating as apple limits the memory capacity of your device by the model your choosing, and the max storage capacity which u can get for the device is also 512 gigs.

2. The OS, Being a long time windows user, using Mac OS is really very intuitive. But on the contrary, it has some drawbacks of its own. I will list some of them for you which I experienced myself.

a. Boot up time.: Although the new MacBook Pros come with the fastest SSD money can buy. The boot-up time from my experience is a little slower compared to a windows 10 PC of similar spec.

b. No option to install the OS manually. And this is a hard one. If you want to hard reset your device, you first need to create a backup of your device and then do a hard reset by going into the bios. After which the OS is installed by connecting your device to the internet. And if you have a slow net connection like I do. Believe me it takes like forever. When I formatted my device, I was not able to install the OS even after trying for more than 10 times. The end of which I went to the Apple service centre and got it done. Mac OS installation is free of charge, there are some service centre that try to cheat customers by charging a hefty amount, so beware.

MacBook Pro 2017 | Intel Kabylake | Apple | 2017



Hi Everyone!

This is Jay here and this is my review of the new MacBook Pro 2017 from Apple. This is the first time I am using a laptop aka an ultrabook from Apple, apart from my late MacBook Air 2015, which had a 5th generation intel core i5 CPU coupled with 8gb of LPDDR3 RAM clocked at 1600Mhz and a 128 GB SSD. I have been a Windows user my whole life, and now have finally decided to make the switch, as I believe with the new hardware and software upgrades that Apple has offered, its a good start. So besides the past lets talk about the new MacBook Pro 2017 in all its glory. The new MacBook Pro is powered by the latest Intel core i5 7th generation(Kabylake) CPU with 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM clocked at 2133 MHz with a Apple proprietary SSD. The one I got was the base line model without the touch-bar, as I felt its nothing more than a gimmick rather then providing actual functionality. Performance wise its whats you'd expect, The laptop can handle daily task like a breeze with zero to no lag whatsoever. The 2560x1600 IPS LCD Retina display is a charm to look at, and while watching Netflix for a few hours I faced no issues and it was a pleasant experience. The screen is bright, vivid with the right amount of contrast and saturation. It gets extremely bright outdoors and you feel no fatigue. And it comes in space-grey. 😉

So to sum things up here are some of the pros and cons that I have found with the new MacBook Pro 2017 which I thought you might like to have a look:

Pros.:

1. Best build in its class. There are a plenty of good machines out there, and believe me when I say this, that the new MacBook Pro beats them all, hands down. The love for detail that has gone in making this machine is absolutely fantastic. You won't find anything that looks misplaced or out-right in any of the machinery. 

2. The screen, and man oh man is it great, I have used a lot of windows laptops and till date haven't come across a screen as gorgeous as the new MacBook Pro.

3. The keyboard, and this maybe subjective, as for me I feel the new keyboards is a breeze to type on, the large and shallow keys are easy to reach and the backlighting makes typing in the dark a joy to behold.
