IRCTC Website could do some improvements

IRCTC ( is one of the busiest websites in India. It is ticket booking portal of one of the most popular and worlds largest Railways, The Indian Railways.

Besides all the popularity and red ribbons it has some glitches. I am sharing a few that I found.

To increase loading speed & delivery performance:
  1. IRCTC should consider having a light weight alternative page during peak hours like between 8:00 AM to 8:30 AM
  2. IRCTC should consider having CDN or Cloud to provide more optimized delivery

To increase user experience:
  1. In the login screen, after loading the page and before setting focus to the username field, the username field has to be checked for any content has been typed. If some content typed no focus should be set or focus should be set to password field. This will avoid accidently revealing passwords.

DeivaThirumagal (2011) - A Beautiful Movie

This is the first time I am writing about a movie on a blog. I watched Deivathirumagal (2011), a beautiful Tamil movie on Fatherly love, yesterday. Many said it is so emotional and audience burst our of tears.. blah blah.. tears doesn't matter when it really worth shedding! Hats off to direction and screen play.. Many appreciation goes to the involvement of the crew.. They all act as such in reality. Santhanam's conversation blended comedy is another big plus.. Many where complaining that this movie is taken from a movie "I am Sam". After all many good movie stories are taken from Novels it is of no matter where the original story is taken from but it is all about the presentation to the target audience. Do you agree?
