Hi people,

I am Debayan Banerjee.

Chances are that you are looking for details for my work on Indic OCR. If that is true, the project is hosted for you at . The project mailing list is at and I maintain a hacker blog at .

I am a fun loving person and technology excites me. I believe in the tremendous ability of good will and technology coupled together, and hence I am also a FOSS enthusiast. I love working with people and have grown as a person through my interactions with wonderful folks of Linux Users' Group NIT Durgapur and the FOSS community  at large.

I love listening to all types of music. I love riding my bike, and I want to learn how to play the drums.

Why this web page is black:

"As noted, an all white web page uses about 74 watts to display, while an all black page uses only 59 watts. I thought I would do a little math and see what could be saved by moving a high volume site to the black format.

Take at look at Google, who gets about
200 million queries a day. Let's assume each query is displayed for about 10 seconds; that means Google is running for about 550,000 hours every day on some desktop. Assuming that users run Google in full screen mode, the shift to a black background [on a CRT monitor! mjo] will save a total of 15 (74-59) watts. That turns into a global savings of 8.3 Megawatt-hours per day, or about 3000 Megawatt-hours a year. Now take into account that about 25 percent of the monitors in the world are CRTs, and at 10 cents a kilowatt-hour, that's $75,000, a goodly amount of energy and dollars for changing a few color codes."
