Kambala - sport/art/passion - A photo documentary

Kambala or Kambla is a famous rural sport, prominent in districts of Udupi and Mangalore in the state of Karnataka in India. Kambala is also known to be held in few northern parts of Kerala like Kasargod.  Kambala is a traditional buffalo race in muddy waters, held from December till March on weekends (sat/sun) every year.

Kambala is a race between pairs of bullocks, which are rode by a human. The bullocks are tied together with a wooden shaft over their neck. These bullocks are typically dedicated bullocks of the family for the Kambala and are pride of the family.

Simplicity in Technology

It is very true that simplicity in technology is very fundamental for any technology to be accepted and adopted by the general public.

The TED talk by ‘David Pogue’ – the technology columnist New York Times is very insightful, musical and outright funny.

Don’t miss this one. He talks about customer support to software upgrade and Microsoft to Google offering examples of products that celebrate the power of simplicity.

This I feel is one of the funniest talks I have seen at TED and is very informative while still being entertaining and funny.

But disagree on the drop-down list of countries design; there are many better ways of handling this. Like intelligently (ip to geo mapping) selecting the user’s country and providing option to user to edit it were in it would provide the drop-down list. And since this list are sorted alphabetically; one can type the first letter to get to the appropriate position in the list.

Hello all, after more than 5 years, I have decided to close down my web site. This has been a difficult decision after all the work I have done, but it is necessary. My friends and I started this site when we were in college and we have put in a lot of hard work. But due to my other commitment and work engagements, I have not been able to give it any time it deserves.

Thanks to all my visitors and thanks for all the supportive e-mail over the years.
