Well there is a sad, veiled message in this, having experience this in the top IBs on Wall street. ' We expect you to work 11-12 hours a day. (have no life). and if you do go back home, try to show your interest by programming at home too,whether its java, or C++. Even read all the books on C++ 11 , though most of them don't use it. many interviewers actually ask what you program at home (since you have to love programming). A lot of them expect or require you to be a programmer 24/7. ' For a senior programmer with 10+ years experience the expectation it practically eat, sleep, code/fix issues. It also has to do with the greatly reduced headcounts after 2008. Programming at highly paid jobs isn't a job anymore, its your life. At that rate you don't have a choice - you dream code.

Protein deficiency in rural India being almost as bad as in the poorest regions of Africa (kwashiorkor, etc), this textbook is highly irresponsible. It should be doing the opposite, in terms of education. The meat-haters in the general population, just make the whole industry suffer and cause problems in availability of meat and protein to people who need it the most.
