Websites ending with pedia

In this article, I have attempted to assess the SEO aspect of websites ending with pedia. SEO stands for search engine optimization and refers to how searchable, informative and accessible a page is. Generally we have been programmed to believe that wikipedia is the only such website whose name ends with pedia. However that is incorrect. There are literally 100's of websites ending with pedia. I have taken a cross-section of such web-sites from various genres and tried to assess the SEO performance of pedia/ wiki websites. Some of the key parameters I have assessed are Alexa Rank, Google PageRank, MozRank, visits/day and web-site worth. Wikipedia URL: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia Alexa Rank - 7 Google PageRank - 9/10 Estimated visits per day - 180,000,000 visits / day Estimated Worth - $ 6,500,000,000…

You are Infinite

You are Infinite

You are Infinite they say You are Infinite, our Great Rishis have said. But what do they mean? Men are mortal, they are finite in size and a resident of a finite earth which is bound by finite laws of Physics. Yet our Ancient Seers insist, You are That (Infinite) [tat tvam asi]. Something else must be going on. Its been more than 6 months now that I have quit corporate life and started my own venture. Nothing fancy or splashy - just a simple Management Consulting practice. I have earlier talked about why I quit corporate life and what all I learnt. And this entire journey has been one of self-discovery. We all want Freedom I was always a spiritual sort of chap, but unfocused, confused and aimless. Materially…

When God Created Man

This is a Guest Post by Tathagata Dey. He may be reached at tatha.blog@gmail.com From the early days when god created man he sent him alone to this earth. But to contemplate this fact , he gave man the power to reproduce and produce one of its own kind. This phenomenon underlines the fact that man is a social being. As per Wikipedia, A human society is a group of people involved in persistent interpersonal relationships, or a large social grouping sharing the same geographical or social territory, typically subject to the same political authority and dominant cultural expectations.

Jagadhatri Puja in Chandannagar 2015

Jagadhatri Puja in Chandannagar 2015

Motley
Today I will talk about festivities and celebrations of Jagadhatri Puja in Chandannagar in 2015. Jagaddhatri also spelled as Jagadhatri (Devnagri: जगद्धात्री, Bengali: জগদ্ধাত্রী) literally means She Who Holds the World or the Protector of the World. She is a form of Devi Durga. She is highly revered in West Bengal, especially in Chandernagore (my ancestral place, a former French colony in Hooghly District, 30 km North off Kolkata) which has the biggest celebration of Jagaddhatri Puja in India. The epicentre of the festival is in Chandannagar, where it is celebrated for four days with much greater grandeur and fanfare. [caption id="attachment_1423" align="aligncenter" width="640"] Beautiful Chanannagar (also called Chandernagore)[/caption] Image Courtesy: flickr People come from different parts of India to Chandannagar to enjoy the superb light works.

The moment I have realized God sitting in the temple of every human body, the moment I stand in reverence before every human…

How to be happy

Motley
I know this is a vast topic. But it will definitely be an interesting idea to investigate. What makes someone happy? Why is happiness not the same for everybody? More importantly what is happiness? In this post I will try to explore in depth on how to be happy and try to answer many such questions. At the onset, please accept my apologies for the length of the post.
