Agree with others, usually it ranges from 10-20% (thats what my publisher paid me )

Bottomline is, you have to be very precise in what you write & have enough knowledge on the topics at hand, else you are just a fly-by-night kind of author.

Those days are very-much non-existent now, though still prevalent in very few region, as those are still socially-backward regions & we do need help of few NGO to get rid of these custom. In fact the politicians are not interested in uprooting them, as they are potential vote-banks, so the onus really lies on the NGOs.

I am tired of asking the questions like ,1)What do you for work,your hobbies,your future plans etc.I can not at all guage whether girl speking truth or hiding something bcos of parental pressure.

Hi,

I dont think there's any specific set of questions that you can ask, but the most important thing is your priorities. In India, still there are houses, where women are not supposed to work, would you like your prospective bride to work, then it depends what she has studied & where she would like to work. The way she answers your queries, you can know if she's career oriented & wants to make use of the knowledge she has, its best to know her future plans.

Be it love or arranged, partners need to have sound understanding & always need to make some sacrifices.

So go for it, let the questions flow, dont use a predefined set. But be sure to have your priorities & let the girl know abt it too...

Good Luck

IN PRISON... you spend the majority of your time in an 8X10 cell.
AT WORK... you spend the majority of your time in a 6X8 cubicle.

IN PRISON... you get three meals a day.
AT WORK... you only get a break for one meal and you have to pay for it.

IN PRISON... you get time off for good behaviour.
AT WORK... you get more work for good behaviour.

IN PRISON... the guard locks and unlocks all the doors for you.
AT WORK... you must carry around a security card and
open all the doors for yourself.

IN PRISON... you can watch TV and play games.
AT WORK... you get fired for watching TV and playing games.

IN PRISON... you get your own toilet.
AT WORK... you have to share with some idiot who pees on the seat.

IN PRISON...they allow your family and friends to visit.
AT WORK... you can't even speak to your family.

IN PRISON... all expenses are paid by the taxpayers with no work required.
AT WORK... you get to pay all the expenses to go to work and then they
deduct taxes from your salary to pay for prisoners.

IN PRISON... you spend most of your life inside bars wanting to get out.
AT WORK... you spend most of your time wanting to get out and go inside bars.

IN PRISON... you must deal with sadistic wardens.
AT WORK... they are called managers.

So Andrzej,

You are of the opinion that I should go ahead with the EAI things. I ought to agree, that in case you are working on webMethods, there are few places where we do have to code in Java, dont know about other tools.

Hi Ranchers,

Few months back I had swicthed from Java based development roles to consulting on EAI platform like webMethods & a very recently added tool called Cast Iron.

Currently working as a Consultant with a major telecom company but still not sure if it is a good move on my part or should I revert back to the Java based developement. I have 4 years of exp. on Java based tech.
