Saw a blind person using an Android phone in Delhi Metro. He repeatedly swipes right on screen and the phone speaks back each text on the screen.
He got an SMS message, copied it somehow, sent it to a contact on WhatsApp and got back an audio reply of the text.
Makes me think,
1. Are the apps we create friendly for such people ?
2. Does it support Malayalam and other regional lang speechback ?
3. How is the overall experience, what can be improved and what are the needs ?
A dog keeping watch while its human friend is sleeping on the street. This sight was both cute and sad.
We also saw a homeless person holding 4 small little kittens trying to keep them warm.
Behind the tourist attractions, fancy buildings, you can see a glimpse of the real India.
The number of homeless people on the streets I saw in Delhi was very surprising.
Even near to the places like India gate, we found people sleeping with blankets all over cause it's frickin cold in the night !!
While eating street food, little kids would come to us and beg. They don't have much clothes in that chilling cold weather and is wandering freely.
For a country that is 4th in the world on military spending, this is pathetic.
രാജ്യതലസ്ഥാനമാണെന്ന് പറഞ്ഞിട്ട് കാര്യമൊന്നുമില്ല.
Heard the story of an Australian yesterday at IFFK. His father is an aboriginal and mother European.
His aboriginal father didn't get citizenship until he was 21. Australia denied citizenship to the original inhabitants of the continent !! The constitution had distinguished the natives and the white settlers.
Having to beg the invaders for citizenship of his own land where his ancestors lived for centuries !!!
bucketlist-- # see a theatre play
Attended International Theatre Festival of Kerala today at Sangeetha Nataka Akademi. Also went for an exhibition at Lalitha Kala Akademi. I liked the vibe here, the people and places. The first play I saw in my life was really good too !
Living in Thrissur, the cultural capital of Kerala, I should have done this longggg ago. Starting all these now :D.
Any suggestions/things I should check out dear aana pappaanmaar ?
The Handshake Foundation donates 79,000 € to KDE.
Ever since I played GTA, used Blender, I had this thought that the whole world and life is a simulation in a 3D rendered world. So there might be some rendering errors and glitches somewhere. But seeing the waves hitting the shore and the beautiful glistening from it, there was no glitch. It was amazing ! It was perfect !
Is this the real life or is it just fantasy ?
Prolly real, or not ?
This is Kodungallur/Paravur beach btw. Been tracking flight path with OSMAnd.
People curious about Maui apps
Anupam Basak from @Nitrux_NX@twitter.com talking about their awesome MauiKit project.
Make apps easily for desktop, Plasma Mobile, Android and even Windows !
He also has demos to showcase !! Super cool ! Qt apps as an Android app, wow!!
He told us he liked Kerala for passing resolution against CAA. And that now other states are following it too.
He bought us chaay too (in a cup made of clay).
I loved the hospitality and this interaction. Everyone was so nice here 💖.
It's the aam aadmi who are protesting.
Shaheen Bagh is like pilgrimage site for pro democracy people. Groups coming in from all directions chanting slogans, having talks at main stage, thousands spread across the road, people showing their creativity in diverse ways, standing around campfire in the cold winter night of Delhi and most of us were women. For sometime, I felt like I was at the greatest place on earth.
