But please, don’t contact me if you are a support guy or a technical department who handles social media support.

PS : Neither I am a professional hacker, nor i know much about security. I am a software product developer and i know how to secure my product. This was just the random tests which i was doing with other sites. I have no intention to break down any security barricades.

UPDATE 13/10/2014 : Flipkart has contacted and i have provided the details. They are working on resolving this issue.

UPDATE 17/10/2014 : CC Avenue has replied and they are working on the fix as well.

Some Long Distance Relationship Problems – SOLVED

First of all I must warn you this is a long and comprehensive article! But if you do have the self-discipline to carefully read it word by word until the end, then I can guarantee that you’ll find the answers to most of your long distance relationship problems.

So, if having a lovely long distance relationship is your goal then I recommend that you take the time and read it all, because this is gonna be the most insightful article that you’ll ever find on the subject.

Problems like jealousy, fear of being cheated on, unbearable missing, constant fights, getting her naughty, boring conversations, confusion about the future, lack of attraction, too much clubbing, will be covered in this article. So, take some time and enjoy!

1) Jealousy

Jealousy is one of those emotions that eat you from the inside if not handled in the right manner. So, how do you manage your jealousy so that it does not affect your emotional state or your long distance relationship?

Well, the first thing to understand is that jealousy is an instinct that we humans have to protect us from losing the person we love. So, it is totally natural to feel jealous and it’s totally natural to express your jealousy too.

Now, the question is how to express jealousy in the right manner? And the simple answer to this question is that we want to be reasonable about it. We want avoid the two extremes: ignorance and neediness.

We want to let our partner know when we feel jealous and clarify it together, so that it does not “boil” inside your mind. Therefore doing that, instead of trying to repress the feeling, or become over controlling and aggressive as a result.

Now, one more thing to keep in mind is that in a healthy relationship, your partner should avoid as much as possible the situations that could make you jealous. Therefore you need to let your partner know that jealousy is not your favorite emotion, and it’s better for the relationship if she avoids potential jealousy situations.

So, do not repress your jealousy, but express it and clarify it in a calm and collected manner with your partner. But take care; jealousy can also be a symptom of you being too insecure about yourself. In this case you need to deal first with your insecurities and then the jealousy will be diminishing as a result.

2) Constant Fights

We all know that fights and arguments are normal in a relationship. But are they normal when they happen too often and when they lead to a lot of stress and worries? …I believe not!

It’s not a war. When we normally start an argument we see each other as two opponents that have an issue to “debate”. Therefore we get angry, maybe yell at each other, blame each other and we forget that we actually have a relationship and that we love each other.

We tend to focus on bringing the right arguments, finding excuses etc. and forget that we are actually in a relationship, and we want to be happy, both of us want that.

So the idea here is: when you’re having an argument to remember that you are both on the same side, it’s not a war, it’s your relationship and the real enemy is the conflict itself not your partner. Thus you want to work on solving the conflict together rather than blaming each other.

Another piece of advice that I can give you is clarifying a problem or conflict when it arises. Unless is too late in the evening and you’re both tired and can’t think rationally anymore, never end a conversation without clarifying a conflict.

3) Unbearable Missing

Loneliness and missing our partner like crazy it’s what makes long distance relationships challenging. But there are ways in which we can make time feel like passing faster. From my experience, you can diminish the longing for your partner in 3 different ways:

  • Involving yourself in time limited activities. I am sure you’ve noticed how fast time seems to pass when you’re in the middle of a written exam and you’ve got only 30 minutes to write a lot of stuff; or, how fast time seems to pass when you’ve got a huge project to complete in a short time period. Well, the idea is that you get yourself involved in activities which require you to see time as very “limited”.
  • Spending time in an enjoyable way. So, the point here is that doing anything that means escaping something unpleasant from your life and doing something pleasant instead will make time feel like passing MUCH faster than normal.
  • Dividing time into small intervals. One great thing that you can do is to divide a longer period of time into smaller intervals so that you focus your mind and patience on the next upcoming event rather than on the entire long period that you have to wait until you see your partner again.

4) Boring Conversations

While talking is generally the only thing that we can do online with our partner, at some point we drain out all the conversational topics and as a result awkward silences start to kick in, or the conversations become more and more predictable and boring. Now, even though this is a very common issue, it can be easily solved if taking some time to spice things up.

In my view…

Boredom Is A Choice…and Only Boring People Get Bored!

So how can we make conversations more interesting?

  • Expand the topics. You ask her what she did today, and she tells you for example that she did many things. And then you take them one by one and comment on them and ask her expanding questions about each one.
  • Make her curious. Curiosity makes conversations more intense, therefore you want to speak in a way that gets her eager to find out more and begs you for it. You can tell her a story and then change the subject in the middle of the story; or refuse to answer one of her questions unless she fulfills one of your requests etc.
  • Make conversations more interactive. Do stuff while talking on Skype, high-five her virtually when she tells you something cool, show her something interesting, play a game, ask her to do something for you right now etc.
  • Teach her something. I bet you know a lot of cool stuff, why not teach her something that you’re passionate about? Share with her interesting stuff that you learned that day, tell her about your expertise in a specific area.
  • Use questions for couples. Search the internet for “questions for couples” and you’ll find hundreds of interesting questions to ask each other and make conversations more fun.
  • Be humorous. Making a girl laugh is the best aphrodisiac. So be funny by telling her funny stories, jokes, make fun of yourself (careful with this), make funny comments about people/stuff etc.

5) Fear of Infidelity

And I saved the best for the last. “I am afraid that she’ll fall for someone else!” Or “I am afraid that she’ll cheat on me, and I can’t control it!

That’s what I hear your “little inner voice” screaming in your head any time you feel a bit insecure.

And you’re not alone. Plus it’s totally normal to feel this way when you’re far away from your girlfriend. (by the way she probably feels the same too) Now how do we deal with the fear of infidelity and how do we make sure to keep her faithful? (million dollar question)
Well from my experience, keeping a woman faithful comes down to one basic principle: “freedom of choice”. What it Means ?

Freedom of choice.

People tend to like doing what they are told NOT to.

What Freedom of Choice means is that you never force your girl to stay faithful, just the opposite, you give her the freedom to cheat if she feels like it, if she thinks that this what she wants.

But only as long as she takes responsibility for her actions and for the fact that your relationship will end after that. This is a powerful way of dealing with the infidelity issue, because it puts the choice in her hands.

It gives her the freedom to do that she wants, and does not force her to behave in a specific way. It’s not you who keeps her from dating, sleeping with other guys, its herself that decides not to do it, because she wants to be with you.

So, that’s my 2 cents on long distance relationship problems. Leave me a comment below and DO let me know what you are your thoughts on this article and also let me know if there’s any other problem that you might have in your long distance relationship, and I’ll make sure to address them in future articles.

Also if you know anyone who can benefit from reading it…pass it on. I really hope that you share it with the world, as you might contribute to the success of another long distance relationship.

Share the Love, And don’t forget to love yourself. ;)

relationships

Keys to successful relationship

Sometimes I wonder why the term “Relationship” comes into our life. Its not the thing you actually wanted but its a thing which comes automatically and connects two people by heart. Whether its a friendship, marriage, business partner or any other relationship, it always brings some emotions and attraction between two people. Every relationship has only two stories and end results – success and failure. Successful relationship stories has no interesting parts to share and failed relationships are not the worth talking about.

Many people makes mistakes in their relationship due to jealousy, insecurity possessiveness etc. At any certain point of time if you feel your relationship is not going on the right path as you ever wanted, there are some checklists which you must follow. just remember…

1. Do not try to read minds.

Most relationship problems start with bad communication, which in turn leads to attempted mind reading. Mind reading occurs when two people assume that they know what the other is thinking when they don’t. This process of wondering and trying to guess what someone is thinking is a rapid route to feelings of insecurity and stress.

If someone says one thing, don’t assume they mean something else. If they say nothing at all, don’t assume their silence has some hidden, negative connotation. Likewise, don’t make the people in your life try to read your mind. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Give the people in your life the information they need, rather than expecting them to know the unknowable.

It’s also important to remember that you aren’t suppose to know every little thing going on in the minds of others, even the people closest to you. When you stop trying to read their minds, you really begin to respect their right to privacy. Everyone deserves the right to think private thoughts. Constantly asking, “What are you thinking?” can provoke a person to withdraw from a relationship to find space.

2. Do not look for a perfect relationship.

90% of relationships breaks into pieces due to this reason. At certain point of time one doesn’t feels that the other one is not right for him and seeks out for another relationship thinking that they will end up finding a perfect one – absolutely wrong.

You will end up spending your entire life hopelessly seeking the right lover and the right friends if you expect them to be perfect. Even worse, the process of doing so will drive you mad, as you feel more and more insecure with every failed relationship that doesn’t live up to your fantasy of perfection.

We’re all seeking those special relationships that feel perfect for us, but if you’ve been through enough relationships, you begin to realize that there are no “perfect people” for you, just different flavors of imperfect ones. That’s because we are all imperfect in some way.

Instead what you can do is, try to ask what you want. Treat the person like a Jini and you being the Aladdin. Open up your heart and ask what you want, and the Jini will always fulfill your needs if he truly belongs to you.

3. Do not judge current relationships based on past ones.

The best thing I have learned from my experience, you are not at all allowed to judge people from their past relationship. If you are entering into a relationship then you must forget about their past and accept the person as they are in present. Just remember, whenever you start thinking about their past, you are actually ruining your present relationship and things can go worst. No matter what they did in past and what they behaved with others, you just need to focus on how they behaves with you and what they give to you at present.

If you carry old bricks from the failed relationships of your past to your present relationships, you will build the same flawed structures that fell apart before. So if you suspect that you have been making unfair comparisons between your present relationships and a negative one from the past, take a moment and consciously reflect on the hurtful qualities of this old, negative relationship, and then think of all the ways your present relationships differ. This small exercise will help you let go of the old bricks and remind you that past pains are not indicative of present possibilities.

You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading your last one.

4. Stop inventing problems that don’t exist.

Inventing problems in our mind and then believing them is a clear path to self-sabotage. Too often we amuse ourselves with anxious predictions, deceive ourselves with negative thinking, and ultimately live in a state of hallucination about worst-case scenarios. We overlook everything but the plain, downright, simple, honest truth.

When you invent problems in your relationships, your relationships ultimately suffer. Insecurity is often the culprit. If you doubt yourself and you don’t realize your own worth, you will pass on any opportunity to let others care for you, and you will remain stuck with the insecurity issues that weigh you down.

5. Stop focusing on the negatives.

There’s no such thing as a perfect relationship. Even if it seems perfect now, it won’t always be. Imperfection, however, is real and beautiful. The quality of the happiness between two people grows in direct proportion to their acceptance, and in inverse proportion to their intolerance and expectations. It’s how two people accept and deal with the imperfections of their relationship that make it ideal.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that you have to accept everyone into your life who is willing to accept you, even if they are obviously not right for you. But it does mean that if there are occasional difficulties in your relationships, you don’t have to jump to the bold conclusion that the entire relationship is bad, and become so distressed that the relationship ends, or so insecure that the other person questions your intentions.

No meaningful relationship will always work flawlessly all the time. Being too black and white about the quality and health of a relationship spells trouble. There will always be difficulties present, but you can still focus on the good. Insecure people constantly look for signs of what’s not working in their relationships. What you need to do is look for signs of what is.

Just remember, Whatever happening to your life at present, is the result of what you have did in your past. It also applies in everyone’s life and relationship. In fact, you are the creator of your own world.

Live a happy life.

I don’t know why, you still in my mind.
Without you, i feel, i wont survive.

I don’t know why, your memories breezes me,
I cant find you by my side, which kills me.

Everyday i go to bed and Until i wake up in the morning, the darker soul of mind, follows me.

I don’t know why, the life has played with me.
Until i hear my inner voice, and realise, that you are always with me.

CoinLogs.com – Keeps a track of every bit

Hello,

I would like to introduce a new platform solely developed by me for my personal use and now i am making it public so everyone can use of it.

I wanted an mobile optimized realtime tracker of coins profile. CoinLogs was born with the investment of time around 10 hours, 8 cup of coffee and 2$ for domain registration. Coinlogs.com is hosted on Cloud VPS sponsored by Windows Azure.

URL : http://coinlogs.com/

Some features of CoinLogs. (Trust me, these are very little and i am planning to enhance it more)

  • Lovely Mobile optimized layout (Powered by bootstrap)
  • Real Time – No need to Refresh your browser.
  • Get rates with every 4 Seconds API call – ( With the power of Windows Azure, CoinLogs API fetches rates from various exchanges very quickly )
  • Live/Offline ticker – (offline message displays if you are disconnected from the internet, Or coinlogs API is dead)
  • Show a bitcoin/litecoin ticker logo on your website with realtime exchange rates.
  • BTC rates provided by mtgox and LTC profile provided by BTC-e.

Task currently i am working on

  • Inhouse API – Work has been done but still didn’t made it for public. Users can fetch latest rates quickly. (No restrictions, everyone can make API requests every seconds)
  • More ALT coin options (I would require your sudgessions on which coins profile you want.)
  • Multi-lingual and multi currencies conversion support. (expected this week)
  • Custom tickers – You will be having option to upload your own image and exchange rates will be displayed on it.

…… etc and others hell lot of features.

For this platform i have preferred Windows Azure Virtual Server with NGINX stack. For the better availability and reach, I am setting up 3 other instances will be located at East Asia, South Asia and North US. And of-course, Azure CDN is there but I would rather prefer MAXCDN.

Anyways, i am open for any suggestions and requests. i would request everyone in this community to take the initiative to review my service and provide me your comments.

And yes, don’t forget to visit CoinLogs through Mobile Device.

Keep Coining. ;)

Dumb Indian Government

I was roaming around the internet and searching for some data. Meanwhile I got an eye on Indian Government’s Data portal where i saw too many outdated information and seems like no one is interested in updating the info available in the site. And when i turned the site’s protocol to HTTPS, i didn’t expected that they would be so much careless. The site’s security certificate was expired 2 days back. I have also tried this in 3 different browsers and computers. So i thought of waking them up and inform about this issue to government.

I thought they will ignore this twit and silently resolve their issue. Instead they did the dumbest ever trick to hide their a*s, as what I expected the answer from the INDIAN Government.
