Yep, yep, some photos of Shadow. He is sitting/lying on the couch trying to keep his pawsies warm, it snowed here on Friday/Saturday, lotsa rain after. Even my tootsies are cold.
Hi, Myself Yogesh Lotlikar, and I write blogs to express my views on various things I think about. The technical stuff which I write is usually my own experience on issues which come across in the day to day activity. Apart from being a Techie, I have interests in finance, economics, history, politics & travelling. Hence all the other non-technical stuff you would find on my blog is the outcome of my own travel experience or my reading and analysis of various issues which excite me.
I am working in IT industry since Aug 2006, carrying 4 years of experience in Microsoft technologies. I have been working on Microsoft CRM & MOSS 2007 since last one year. I have done my “Master Of Computer Application” from Mumbai University. I have a couple of certifications from the National Stock exchange in the field of capital markets and derivatives.
I am passionate about the things that interest me. I believe a person to be honest in his relationship and dedicated to his profession. I would describe myself to be a workaholic person with positive attitude and constantly ready to take up challenges and make a mark in the IT industry.

My aunt took these photos yesterday, 5/27/2012, while at Ft. Rosecrans National Cemetery in San Diego.
Look at the sheer numbers of markers. At ONE National Cemetery. Just one. Seeing all these numbers made me think. If this is one cemetery, add all of the markers from ALL of the National Cemeteries. Then, add all of the markers for those who are NOT buried at National Cemeteries.
It makes me incredibly sad.
When are we going to learn? Not just the U.S., cuz this isn’t just a U.S. problem. It is world-wide.
I feel like we are thumbing our noses at all those who have sacrificed for us. Obviously our governments have learned nothing after centuries of fighting. Will they ever? We can tout and yell about how we remember. It won’t mean anything until WE ACTUALLY REMEMBER AND PUT THOSE MEMORIES IN TO PRACTICE. Actions speak louder than words. I’m sorry our soldiers, and those all over the world, have to continuously provide the “action” with their lives while our governments learn and provide nothing.
They think they are providing a great service when they provide nominal health care, markers for graves. The best service would be to actually remember why people have died and to act upon it by making this world a better place. That is why our soldiers died, hoping to make the world a better place. Now if only our governments could do that, what could be a better service to provide? What better rememberance?
