Rock On!

Rock On… watched it, and liked it. Here’s the one line review:

In those days spirits were brave, the stakes were high, men were real men, women were real women and small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri were real small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri.

– Douglas Adams


It will pass

Last time I talked a bit about Tau. And here’s something from Zen:

A student went to his meditation teacher and said, “My meditation is horrible! I feel so distracted, or my legs ache, or I’m constantly falling asleep. It’s just horrible!”

“It will pass,” the teacher said matter-of-factly.

A week later, the student came back to his teacher. “My meditation is wonderful! I feel so aware, so peaceful, so alive! It’s just wonderful!’

“It will pass,” the teacher replied matter-of-factly.

I like their expression. 🙂


During a mail conversation with friends, I reached a stage where I wrote this:

“Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.”
– Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
I started believing in the above after meeting Bhati. (Bhati is a genius. You’ll love interacting with him if you wanna talk about telecom and electronics in general. Otherwise he is utterly useless to the universe.)

“Don’t stay in bed, unless you can make money in bed.”
– George Burns (1896-1996)
I know this since the time I realised how sex is perceived. Though, I don’t recall the date. 🙂

“C makes it easy to shoot yourself in the foot; C++ makes it harder, but when you do, it blows away your whole leg.”
– Bjarne Stroustrup
Ever tried, declaring protected variables without finalising your package structure and namespaces. Sometimes C unions are better.

“The only difference between me and a madman is that I’m not mad.”
– Salvador Dali (1904-1989)
Everybody knows that about me. No explanations required.

“Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe.”
– H. G. Wells (1866-1946)
Bill gates was a dropout.

“Women might be able to fake orgasms. But men can fake a whole relationship.”
– Sharon Stone
Beware Mritunjai!!

“I’m all in favor of keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of fools. Let’s start with typewriters.”
– Frank Lloyd Wright (1868-1959)
Have you read The Bombay Times today?

“Some cause happiness wherever they go; others, whenever they go.”
– Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)
Do you know Sam Palmisano?

“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”
– Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931)
I still don’t have the fortitude to accept it. Someday I’ll have.
