Got this article via email and would like to share it with all.

Knowledge Management is a buzzword in today’s corporate scenario. Companies have instituted special programs wherein their employees can acquire knowledge from newer avenues. But in the midst of all this, we forget what is also equally important – the application. I have seen many people who have excellent knowledge, they have acquired so much of information which is available at their fingertips but when it comes to practical application they are nowhere. Knowledge when not applied is of no use as it does not produce any results and just rots in the mind. The culmination of knowledge occurs when it is put into use and benefits everybody. Knowledge and Application are like 2 sides of the same coin, one along with the other makes life more valuable.

I have tried to create a knowledge-application chart as given below. This chart will help us classify ourselves and others among the listed 4 categories:

Knowledge and Application Chart
1. Dummies: They score very low on both the fronts and they are yet to begin the journey. No point talking about them.

2. Sinners: This category of people have lot of knowledge but they do not apply that knowledge. According to me having knowledge and not applying for the benefit of growth is a sin.

3. Survivors: These are a unique group of people, who apply almost everything they know. The ability to apply makes these individuals survivors.

4. Achievers: These are the people who should be looked up to. They score high on both the parameters. They achieve a lot and become somebody because they are busy applying the knowledge which they continuously acquire.

The idea is not just to plot individuals in the chart, but what is more important is to realize that it’s not the end-of-the road. We can move up the matrix by having a higher knowledge-application ratio and also help others to move. That’s the way to go….

Oracle 9i VS Oracle 10g

I have been using oracle 9i and was pretty comfy with the feature set and the user friendliness. The Management console was pretty much simpler to use and understandable even by a novice user.

I upgraded to Oracle 10g just few days back (Well the real reason being to fix a bug basically) and after installing it I was completely lost. No Management consloe as it was there in Oracle 9i???? I was completely lost..

After googling for a while i found that Oracle 10g had a web based management console. Now, generally you log into the oracle database using the very famous scott and tiger credentials and that was not the case with 10g. Again after googling for a while, found that you need to use SYSMAN as the username and the password that you provide during the installation.

hmmmm. It’s a mamoth change from 9i and will take a while to figure out the new feature set included in 10g but for sure it is much more complex than it looks. I’m playing aroun

Our Weekness is Our Strength

A 10-year-old boy decided to study judo despite the fact that he had lost his left arm in a devastating car accident.
The boy began lessons with an old Japanese judo master. The boy was doing well, so he couldn’t understand why, after three months of training the master had taught him only one move.

“Sensei,”(Teacher in Japanese) the boy finally said, “Shouldn’t I be learning more moves?””This is the only move you know, but this is the only move you’ll ever need to know,” the sensei replied.

Not quite understanding, but believing in his teacher, the boy kept training. Several months later, the sensei took the boy to his first tournament.

Surprising himself, the boy easily won his first two matches. The third match proved to be more difficult, but after some time, his opponent became impatient and charged; the boy deftly used his one move to win the match. Still amazed by his success, the boy was now in the finals.
This time, his opponent was bigger, stronger, and more experienced. For a
while, the boy   appeared to be overmatched. Concerned that the boy might
get hurt, the referee called a time-out.
He was about to stop the match when the sensei intervened. “No,” the sensei insisted, “Let him continue.” Soon after the match resumed, his opponent made a critical mistake: he dropped his guard. Instantly, the boy used his move to pin him. The boy had won the match and the tournament.

He was the champion. On the way home, the boy and sensei reviewed every move in each and every match.

Then the boy summoned the courage to ask what was really on his mind.
“Sensei, how did I win the tournament with only one move?”

“You won for two reasons,” the sensei answered.”First,you’ve almost mastered one of the most difficult throws in all of judo. And second, the only known defense for that move is for your opponent to grab your left arm.” The boy’s biggest weakness had become his biggest strength.


Sometimes we feel that we have certain weaknesses and we blame God, the circumstances or ourselves for it but we never know that our weaknesses can become our strengths one day. Each of us is special and important, so never think you have any weakness, never think of pride or pain, just live your life to its fullest and extract the best out of it!”
