Instant Karma?

There are a couple of temples on my way to office. If you have seen me drive, you know, I HATE slowing down. However, if you know the bangalore traffic you know that two wheelers will stop at will without any signal. Invariably , the tail light of these rides in question are out of commision. When you realise this guy in front of you is slowing down and you have no other choice but to follow suite, as there is NO SCOPE of overtaking them (trust me the gullys are that narrow).
Any way, you look at that guy in irritation and realise he doesn't have any time to get down and go inside so is cleansing himself of his sins (this is a dialy procedure so lets assume the sins are of the day before...) and you tend to give the driver a wry smile and carry on, slowing down that is.

The guy picks up speed for about a 100 yards and then starts slowing down again (WHAT THE?) turns out he prays in front of all the god's creations (the female type i assume). The MBA institute on the way if PERFECT for his devotion. AAAAAAAAAA......Now I understand why this guy has to cleans him self of his sins everyday. Get MOVING YOU F***. OR ATLEAST MOVE TO THE SIDE AND PRAY WITH SOME DEVOTION!!!

Kristen Barry - Ordinary Life

And I shed my soul and feel it kneeling down...
I'm clutching my faith and pull it tightly round...
You're moving your mouth but you don't make a sound...
But I feel the walls slowly tearing down...
Heel to toe takes you from my side...
In and out and every breath divides...
My eyes to your head,
I can't go the distance...
But when you go you take me in an instant...
In this life and I'll give it time...
Cause its always pushing up from behind...
It'll be alright and it will be fine...
Its nothing more than ordinary life...
And I show you my sins and show me all your scars...
As we settle in and its written in the stars...
Your watery eyes got me send me floating...
And my weak heart is swimming with devotion...
But in this life...
I'll give it time...
Cause its always sneaking up from behind...
It'll be alright and it will be fine...
Its nothing more than ordinary life...

What is the POINT?

A point is an entity with a location in space but no extent (volume, area or length). In geometry, a point therefore captures the notion of location; no further information is captured. Points are used in the basic language of geometry, physics, vector graphics (both 2d and 3d), and many other fields. In mathematics generally, particularly in topology, any form of space is considered as made up of points as basic elements.

Yesterday, had a pseudo intellectual discussion with another Friend of mine. Here goes....

She said: Get the point?

I said: A Point is pointless....

She: WHAT?

Me: Arre, A point has no dimensions (ref the defn above..) so, it can not possibly contain another point. Thus, a point is pointless!!

She: But the very fact that the point exists is proof that there IS a point.

Me: True but I am not denying that fact does exist but it IS still pointless!!!

She: Yup, but it still contains itself doen't it?? So, it ain't pointless.

Me: You can say that for some thing that has a dimension!! Since a point Has no dimension so it CAN NOT contain itself.......Anyway by this time we got bored and got the point that the whole thing was pointless and gave up on it.

Ok, Sandy if you are reading this I know I had a simillar discussion with you regarding this (yup, I am completely jobless)......but then we both were building the argument and not arguing about it so.....this one was much more irritating :) ...and pointless!

do u LISTEN to the music??

I guess I was in the 9th grade when this happened. I got my hands on one my cousin's mixed tapes (yup we had tapes back then). It had this old Billy joel song on it, we didn't start the fire. Nice tune, everybody loved it. Neway, during one of my history classes at school, the teacher mentioned this song and said it was an example of history in pop culture....WHAT?? Nope, none of us had a clue as to what was she talking about. On the other hand, she was shocked that all we did was listen to the melody and never actually heard the song.

As it turns out this is what she was talkin about.....the song actually is a chronological list of specific events, names, and places, beginning in Joel's year of birth (1949-1989). The lyrics are as follows, for maore info on the events mentioned here take a look at this the bottom of the page has the whole info

Just cynical?

Reel life taking on real life taking on reel life.....that is exactly what every body thought when a handfull of former IIT(yeah the same IIT that was mentioned by dilbert) students launched their own expected it got a lot of coverage....and the usual cynical urban youth of India saw a raw of hope (yup me too....).

We have a monthly online magazine here at my place of work. They ran an interview with one of the founder members of the party. This is what led me to their site and their "ideology" and "strategy". The Hidustan times article which tears the recent hit rang de basanti to shreads and refers to this party as one of the saviours we were waiting for is a case in point.

So why am I writing this? Take some time to go to the party's site and read their take on why they made the party and how they want to get around to implement it. Two things are disturbing:
1) You get an impression that a software engineer who HATES documentation went about writing it. I do not mean the presentation of it all, the issue is how the article simplifies the whole issue of a socitey to a relationship diagram (just like all those cpp books)
2) The whole thing seems to be an impulsive decision taken by some really bright young minds.

Well may I am just being cynical( old habits die hard!!)....they will be fighting the elections this time around in TN, pondichery and kerela I guess. I do wish them all the luck and hope to god I am completly wrong about the whole thing. Well anyway they did take a step unlike me who is sitting on his useless ass and writing this....well as i said old habit die hard.....and sometimes they are immortal!!

P.S: Take a look at their interview on the N.D.T.V site and you might agree with me.

NDTV is currently in "save the nation" mode. In their pursuit of being the saviour they have been running this story on Sarabjit Singh's life (the Indian national accused of being a terrorist by Pak). His guilt has been proven in a Pakistani court. Now we want him to be "pardoned". I am not very bright so please help me understand the following:

1) India want's the Pakistani court to change it's decision....But we don't want pak to interfere with our internal matters.
2) Sarabjit did not commit the crime.....but still Mr. Mush kindly pardon him so that he is not hanged for a crime he never commited...HUH???
3) The Pakistani and Indian kids rotting in their neighbouring country's prisons can not be released....they are the blood thirsty terrorists!!!

Saddam will be tried for crimes against humanity.......
When he killed Iranian soldiers using his biological weapons (weapons of mass destruction) paid for by US it was a great service to humanity as Iran could not get more american hostages!!
now since Bush did not get a piece of the pie and Saddam "tried to kill his dad" he is the supreme evil.........Man I do not understand this........

As understood by Malcom X an enemy who atleast tells the truth and let's u know he hates you is much better than one who has a peace treaty with you and is inclined to help you shoot your toes off your feet....

Nah, can't figure this out.....processor overheating.....abort, retry, fa........

The Fact remains......Frodo failed......Bush has the ring!!!!!
