Whats My Name
Nothing important here. Move along :) For quite some time I have wondered what was the meaning of my name. "Tariq" or "Tarek". Everybody kept telling me that it was a star, a very bright star. Well if so what or where is it? Well I kinda found out the other day. It doesnt mean star. It means a Pulsar. The direct translation of Tariq means "the knocker"; i.e. as in the sound made by a Radio Pulsar. 'The Arabic word "Thukb" means a hole; "Thakeb" means the one who makes the hole.

Its Difficult Giving Up Control
I am having a personal dilemna at the moment. I gave my present employer my notice a few weeks back, and my current duties are mainly that I should transfer responsibilities to a "new somebody". Now throughout most my career I have been leading teams, and I believe I have an instinctive urge to jump right in and tell folks how things really should be done. Perhaps thats why I was leading teams in the first place. But now I have to play a back seat role, and this is very difficult for me to do. |Every ......

I want my TV
I am not sure to what aspect of Sri Lanka you would attribute this to? It could be politics.
