    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Actually rarely will i encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you may have hit the nail for the head. Your idea is outstanding; the catch is something which too little everyone is speaking intelligently about. We are very happy we stumbled across this within my look for some thing regarding this.

    Dear Sir ,
    I had a look of the website, my comments (read Remarks) are:
    · Please use following to introduce you

    o Veteran IAF officer, A Software IIT alumni, Electrical & Aeronautical Engineer, Now an Accordionist and Published Author at the place of “ex-IAF officer, SW engineer IIT-Bombay, and Electrical & Aeronautical engineer PEC Chandigarh, now a Published Author & Accordionist”

    · mikerana.com: A website with much relevant articles but….

    o looks much crowded although articles are arranged in a segmented manner

    o Ideally, the content should be clustered and arranged under separate blogs as per their relevant characteristics; not all articles on the same website

    · Let mikerana.com should be an introductory website talking about you and your work in summary Plus dedicated different blog-links

    o Each blog link should further reach to a new link showcasing all relevant blogs to that subject only
    best regards
    Vikas

      I had three websites … mikerana, efingertip, efingertip books.

      I combined to make them into one so that people following me should be locked on to one site only.

      Thank you for our suggestion. It is highly appreciated. I will see what I can do about your suggestion. why don’t you cur and paste these comments on the site under ‘about’ tab. So others could also make their suggestions

    Hi Mike,
    Hearty compliments on starting your web site, self – designed and self- created. It is comprehensive…the range of subjects covered is vast, caters to a wide spectrum of human interest and attention. The quality of the presentation is quite impressive..not surprising, though, coming from you and knowing your penchant for deep research and perfection.
    Good luck, always…will be visiting the website regularly for updates.

      Dear Puneet Ji,
      Thank you for encouraging me .. I will continue to share my thoughts with you. The purpose of making this website is to show a common presence to people on the internet. I struggled a lot with getting the hang of it … Somebody even quoted me Rs 1,00,000 for making it happen. Do you know it is so versatile that I can make changes on the fly, as we get the comments of the people? We don’t have to depend on someone, who might be busy in his own work.

      Would like you to dig deep into it and comment on the subject you like or you have an opinion on. I would love to have your comments.

      Thanks for your post. I also think laptop computers have grown to be more and more popular currently, and now are often the only form of computer used in a household. The reason being at the same time that they are becoming more and more coffvetsecti-e, their processing power is growing to the point where they can be as strong as desktop computers through just a few years ago.

    We have miles to go KG, but the next generation will not let us rest until we do something for them. They will stop respecting us as a generation.
