पाहून तुला तिची मला आठवण येते

त्याला तिच्या सारखी एक मुलगी दिसते. तिच्याकडे तो पाहताच राहतो. ती थोडी भांबावते. तो तिला या काही ओळींनी या सगळ्याच कारण सांगतो

नको असं - तसं काही  वाटून तू घेऊ चेहऱ्यात तुझ्या तिचे गाल मऊ मऊ
डोळे जसे तुझे हसती हसायची ती ही हसत हसत पाहून तिला फसायचो मी ही
डोळ्या मध्ये मला तुझ्या पाहूदेना थोडे हळू हळू मग मी हे सोडवेल कोडे
पाहून तुला तिची मला आठवण येते डोळ्यामध्ये  मग ती तरळून जाते
भेटलीच तुला तर आवर्जून सांग कधी कधी फुटतो माझ्या डोळ्यांचा ही बांध
जमलेच तुला तर भेटतजा कधी सुकलेल्या मनाला झुळूक ही साधी

लग्ना नंतरचे प्रेम ...

डॉक्टर ने त्याला सांगितलेले असते काही दिवस एका कुशीवर झोपू नका. ती रात्र भर जागीच असते मधे मधे त्याला एका कुशीवरून पाठीवर करत.
यालाच तर लग्ना नंतरचे प्रेम म्हणतात ना ?

NLP resources from Uni. of Edinburgh

Machine Learning for Natural Language Processing (ML-for-NLP) This reading group focuses on Machine Learning techniques that may be applied to the field of Natural Language Processing. Participants are encouraged to suggest topics, papers, or tutorials (which need not involve any current application in NLP) by adding them to the lists below. Suggesting a paper does not constitute any sort of commitment to presenting that paper. Meetings are approximately every week on Thursdays. Meetings will be in 4.02 at 3pm unless otherwise stated. Announcements for this group will be made by email, and it is possible to sign up to the mailing list here. NewsNo news, is good news Tools for Research.

Good advice on managing the paper presentation slides and talk

Some tips for preparing your paper presentation First, organize your talk:Read the entire paper at least 3 times. 
You need to be able to explain the details in the paper (even the ugly tricky notation)
You need to be able to provide a critical analysis of the paper
Check out references in the related work section of the paper. (this will help you put the paper in context of a larger body of work and will help you critique the paper's results/contributions)
Look at Paper Reading Advice for more details.Find the important ideas A paper has many details but only one or two main ideas; structure your talk around these main ideas.Create a Talk Outline 
Your talk should be organized in a top-down manner.
You should have the following main sections in your talk:Introduction, The Big Picture: what, why, how, and why we should care (motivation). Be sure to include:a statement of the problem being solved (what)motivation and putting the work in context (why and why should we care)a high-level v…

Getting Better- Dharmesh Shah on Linkedin

Advice is often much easier to give than to take. For example, I was at a meeting at HubSpot yesterday and we were talking about a particularly area of the business that is having some challenges. A plan was presented. Then, a question came up in the room: “What you're suggesting we do is not that different from what we've done in the past. Why do we think it's going to lead to a dramatically different outcome?” It was a good question. This just doesn't just apply to businesses, it applies to individuals as well. When I’m facing a problem or challenge, one of the key questions is to ask: “Okay. So what do I plan to do differently so I can have a chance at a different outcome?” The only way to overcome a problem is to do something differently because unless you do, tomorrow is just like today. (And who wants that?) But there's an even better approach: Instead of waiting until you have to make a bad situation better, why not turn an “okay” situation into a great one …

Important career and life advice

Sometimes the route to happiness depends more on what you don't do.

Happiness--in your business life and your personal life--is often a matter of subtraction, not addition.
Consider, for example, what happens when you stop doing the following 10 things:
1. Blaming.
People make mistakes. Employees don't meet your expectations. Vendors don't deliver on time.
So you blame them for your problems.
But you're also to blame. Maybe you didn't provide enough training. Maybe you didn't build in enough of a buffer. Maybe you asked too much, too soon.
Taking responsibility when things go wrong instead of blaming others isn't masochistic, it's empowering--because then you focus on doing things better or smarter next time.
And when you get better or smarter, you also get happier.
2. Impressing.
No one likes you for your clothes, your car, your possessions, your title, or your accomplishments. Those are all "things." People may like your things…


I don't want just the fight of words, I want ideas to collide for creation of better ones. I don't want just the arrows of definitions and illustrations to be shot for nothing of any worth. Everything should have a meaning, a meaning that is intended.
