तलाश

जिंदगी थी बढ़ी उदाश जिसमे थे बढे बढे ख्वाब ख्वाबो को पूरे करने की थी तलाश जीवन हो न जाये व्यर्थ डर था बस यही हर वक़्त बनानी थी अपनी एक पहचान जिससे हो हमे बढ़ा अभिमान भरने है हमे जीवन में इतने रंग की खिल उठे हम अपने सपनों के संग जीना है कुछ इस तरह की मुस्कुराएँ हम हर एक पल भुलादे हम हर एक गम सिखा हमने बनाओ अपने कर्तव्य को अपना अभिमान फिर दुनिया भुला न पायेगी चाह कर भी तुम्हारी पहचान जिंदगी जितनी भी हो उदाश सपने देखो तुम हर एक रात

एहसास

जाने आज ऐसा क्यों एहसास हुआ जी रहे थे हम आंखें बंद किये | खुशियों के आने पर भी खुश नहीं थे हम | किसी और की कामयाबी को बनाकर अपना जी रहे थे हम | आखे खुली तो देखा हमारे सपने मुस्कुरा रहे थे हमपर| दिल ने कहा हमसे देर नहीं हुई इतनी की तुम मुरझा गए हो फुल भी सूरज की आखरी किरण तक खिलते है | रास्ते वही है, सफ़र वही फिर क्यूँ तुम सोच में दुबे हो उठाओ बिस्तर, भुलाओ बीते पल और ढूंड लो अपनी मंज़िल | क्यों दिल धडक ता  है जोरो से सोच कर चल रहे हम अकेले| जब की मंजिल की शुरुआत में हम थे बिलकुल अकेले| सफ़र के सहरो ने दिखाए इतने बरे सपने की अपने प्यारे सपने लगने लगे छोटे दिमाग ने कहा चलते रहो उधर मुनाफा है जिधर| दिल ने कहा पूरे  कर अपने सपनो को जितने भी हो वह छोटे |

Participating in Gracehopper celebration of Women in Computing

Image
Being a Microsoft Student Partners, I got invitation to participate in Gracehopper celebration of Women in Computing . I got excited to participate after going into details of the program. But my hectic schedule was not permitting me to take part. I somehow managed with my time and made my mind to participate in poster designing. From long time I had an idea of a research paper in my mind, so I thought it would be best time to implement it. After one week of research and hard work amidst my Gre exam and Amazon interview, I finally completed my two page abstract on "Environmental Educational Game" based on the design of Gombli (Imagine Cup Game Designing Competition 2010).Thanks to Dr. Gautam Paul (Jadavpur University), he reviewed my paper and help me to rectify my mistakes. Contribution from my team mate Shubhajit in designing Gombli was no less. I realized that research on environmental problems can bring significant changes in us.It make us more sensible in terms of sa

Rubik's Cube Solver

Image
Okay, its done. This Rubik's Cube solver uses Korf's Algorithm also called IDA* . The solver have two views 3D and flat. The implementation is similar to Jaap Scherphuis' Cubie , solving the cube with a maximum depth of 25. The cube can be scrambled and solved but its not configurable. The 3D cube is drawn using OpenGL. Download : RubiksCube.zip (253 KB)

Rubik's Cube

I am trying to make a Rubik's Cube solver. I have finished working on Windows MFC programing now working on 3D modeling of the cube using OpenGL. After the modelling I have to work on the solver algorithm. Its going to be a a very interesting project. Later on I'll try to scan the cube through the camera and process it using OpenCV to solve the customized cubes.

hi everyone I am writing after long time. I had been working on my academic project Folder.exe. It is a game designing project.The most interesting class of my project is "Particle", It is used when enemies are attacked by the player and get disintegrated in small particles. Here is the screenshot of my particle effect used on enemies In this Screenshot we can see when an enemy is attacked by the player, its health bar is shown and small particles coming out from the body of the virus. It make it appear that virus is breaking into pieces.

My first teaching session as Microsoft Student Partners

Image
As a Microsoft Student Partners, I gave my first session on Introduction to Game designing in Xna. It was attended by more than 60 students from my college Bengal Institute of Technology. The driving force for this students to attend my session was the topic itself i.e designing game. I was very confident, excited, and equally nervous for teaching so many students for the very first time. But, thanks to my friends who co-operated with me. I described the most important elements required to design our own game i.e Microsoft Xna (game Engine) + Adobe illustrator( graphics) + Simple maths + interesting game play. Then discussed about Windows phone 7 games and apps. The benefits they can have by designing games in Xna, about cross platform support. How they can begin by designing simple prototypes to execute their ideas and then discuss about very simple games to begin. I explained them few of the designs of my own game and online tutorial resources like xnadevelopment , Riemers XNA tu
