Thodi si, a bit of it, it is difficult but kya kare...

In school people could have easily related the act of Padhai with me. I enjoyed padhai, it was just another thing which was necessary for me to live, like food and sleep. Now it seems like a burden.

Billi Season-3 is up, but given my capricious nature I am toggling too much between things. Office, Work, Blogs, Mails, Food, Sleep, Phone, Ayn Rand, Books, Weekend timepass, just too many things clogging my mindmap at the moment. I need to be focused, Billi is much more than getting a degree, its my last attempt to enjoy studies, to be a part of that world which seems even farther from Neverland. To put in a bit simpler terms, it's escape route from working.

Inspiration: The Great Escape (1963)

Just want to runaway like Steve McQueen, just hoping that after getting out of here I do a bit better than facing Nazi Guns. Have seen the movie around 10 times.

Maybe I am trying to hide it behind the pretext of my poor run in the last two seasons but the reality is that my Mind has rusted. Still looking for a good way to Galvanize and save it, because what has gone of it won't come back.

Kids are the Future, they know it !!!

13th May’2002

Bangalore-Delhi Rajdhani Express

Pattu (that is me, school nickname), Addu and Niddu

Travel Purpose
Journey from Bangalore to Nagpur. Me going back home after more than a month. The time which was spent in Delhi, Nagpur, Chennai and Bangalore giving IITJEE, KCET and DA-IICT entrance, coaching and waiting for trains.

The Incident
Now something about the incident, we had a family sitting with us in Train, uncle-aunty and two kids, elder son gave KCET like us and the younger one a school kid, maybe about 10-11 years old.

The Father-Son duo (the younger son) was sitting facing each other with the train moving in the direction where the Father's back was, Kid says

"Dad, you are looking at the past, me at the future"
That time I could just manage to smile at this, today I think I couldn’t have managed more.

P.S. - Thought of blogging this after I read about Sur’s incident on the same Railway route.

P.P.S- Although it’s out of context I would like to mention that this was the first time I was traveling by Rajdhani and the food was awesome.

Liverpool Jeetega

Hope Steven Gerrad(my favourite football player) and his boys do it again. Last time it was a miracle, hoping for such kind of a game again. But somewhere inside I have a feeling that the Work-Ex of Milan Uncles(Gattuso, Seedorf, Maldini) along with another uncle (kaka) will do it.

But go Liverpool win it...make it Red

For those who didn't find the context read this,

Taj Mahal Needs a Facial

Great, even Taj Mahal gets into the Shahnaz Hussain regime. Read this news on Time- The Taj Mahal Needs a Facial.

Interesting way to resolve the chores of India's only member in the Seven Wonders of the World club. The website quotes,
The parliamentary report suggests applying a special mud treatment to the building to bring it back to life. "To restore the pristine glory of the Taj Mahal, as a conservation measure, the clay pack treatment which is non-corrosive and non-abrasive [should be] carried out for the removal of the accretionary deposits,"it says.
Good that given our Parliament's way of doing things, they didn't go for a detergent clean-up!!!

Stuck in Book Traffic courtesy Ms. Ayn Rand

Ayn Rand is surely a genius. She has made a mess out of my reading habits. I am no way a book addict like pingu but I have read some 30 odd books in the 11 months after coming to Bangalore. But it was only after I read Fountainhead that things have started messing up.

After Fountainhead I started with Harry Potter to pacify my thoughts. I mean Harry and company surely are much more simpler to comprehend in action and thoughts than Howard Roark and troupe.

As if Roark, Gynand, the stupid acts of Dominique, the light year long dialouges of Elssworth Toohey weren't enough, I started my interaction with John Galt. Although still somewhere in middle Dagny sounds much more rationale than Dominique.

Ayn Rand has started given me bad dreams too. I once saw Ayn Rand in my dream and here is how the conversation went,

Me- Hi Ayn.
Ayn Rand- Hi Desh! There is no reason why we are talking, but should there be a reason. You can do whatever you want but let me make my home as I want to to. And then I will blast it. There is nothing known as love for the house but an animal like desire for the ones whom I never loved. It hurts me if someone thinks that profits are worthless. Philanthropy is just a juxtaposition of randomly disordered thoughts which were never objectivist in nature. Its better to eat from someone's palter rather than cook for him blah blah blah...(to infinity)
And then you wake up with her bakbak still rumbling in my small brain.
Whatever I say Ayn Rand surely makes you think and maybe that's why she is that popular. Anyways by book traffic I mean I am reading the following books at the same time and not able to complete any of them,
  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Harry Potter-1,2,3 happened in one-two weeks, third is certainly the best of the lot)
  • Atlas Shrugged
  • Short Story Collection by Satyajit Ray (quite simple stories
  • Freakonomics
  • Shantaram (read some 600 pages of it few months back and after that have had 3 failed attempts to restart it again)
Trying for a non-congested book affair. Any suggestions?

Kalam Chacha- Tussi Na Jao

One of my friends today sent me a link to vote (some kind of a online petition) to let APJ Abdul Kalam, the honorable President of the India to stick to his job. I quite liked the initiative as I find him the Best President till date, quit energetic and Junta Pleasing than his previous mundane successors. A person who truly has redefined the role of President. If you find him good too Vote for him.

(APJ Abdul Kalam. Img Source:

I quite appreciate the work done by Kalam Sir and am very fond his books (Wings of Fire and Ignited Minds). I don't want him away from this job and as such the other names in consideration are quite scary.

So vote for him and if you haven't visited President's website yet do visit it. It's great fun to read his speeches and lectures.
