There's so much to learn, really.


August 25, 2005.


I learnt lots today. But then, i'm pretty sure that you did too.The POINT is, did you step back and take a register that a learnin has happened...did you take a moment to step back and get perspective...did you pause...did you, really?

I dint. But then, wat the hell do ya think i maintain this blaag for? :D

Today. This day the twenty fifth of august in the year two thousand and five, has not been especially different...especially significant...but i choose to pause today and register and note wat i've learnt today. not for any particular reason.
if yer still with me, here i go...

I learnt.

It's easy to say you'll be there by 9:15AM.
But much tougher to actually make it there, if you start brushin yer teeth at 9AM. :|

It's easy to lose perspective and crib abt my life.
But much more difficult to appreciate the reality of those around me.

It's easy to claim respect and privilege based on past glory.
But tougher to earn by friggin day. moment by gritty moment.

It's easy to say "I'm sure you hav a tough time" to someone based in a land that does not speak yer language.
But much more, MUCH more difficult to appreciate how tough it is to get by, to converse, to derive meaning from my job everyday.
try it sometime.

It's far easier to get to play the part.
But not so easy to look the part...
especially wen u look like yer subordinate's "thambi" or sumthin..@()*)( rats. :D

It's so damm easy to quit work by 4PM wen yer on yer own in the field.
But much tougher to quell those pangs of guilt that keep eating me alive, wen i do things l'that. :-s

It's so easy to walk through life and not ask "why".
But i find it's bloddy tough to stop and ask "why" where it counts...
mebbe coz it's not so easy to define those points in time and space that actually count.


It's easy to run through with the blinders on. refusing to observe. mebbe coz u dont wanna.
Much tougher to run without them, as is obvious.

And not very pleasant to have the blinders removed by force either.
*Thanks all the same. I needed to know. Fine, i'll stop thinkin abt it :p



If yer STILL heah...
i've got summat for ya...from one of the most amazing animation movies ever made.

"Circle Of Life"

From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There's more to be seen than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done

Some say eat or be eaten
Some say live and let live
But all are agreed as they join the stampede
You should never take more than you give

In the circle of life
It's the wheel of fortune
It's the leap of faith
It's the band of hope
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle, the circle of life

Some of us fall by the wayside
And some of us soar to the stars
And some of us sail through our troubles
And some have to live with the scars

There's far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round

In the circle of life
It's the wheel of fortune
It's the leap of faith
It's the band of hope
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle, the circle of life


PS: I agree with "cowboy". I luv that movvay "Kungu Hustle".
Prolly one of the most amazing movies ever made.
Perfection. do NOT miss.


edit: "kungu hustle" is not the same as "kungfu hustle",
as certain colored_foliage_type_ppl assumed.

Posted by syko 23 August 2005, 11:12pm Good Will Hunting. Totally!


So i was watchin da movie last nite. Saw it for the first time.
Yes. I'd joined a cult of non-tv-watchers...and had thus missed the movie the first 600 re-runs.
But i DID catch last nite's and i must say i ij very impressed with da movvay.

The whole intense fight with the self and awl that aside,
i wis struck by how similar we both was.
Matt Damon and I.

I'm Matt Damon in Good Will Hunting.

Without the genius, ofcourse.
Or the good looks. Or the diction.
Or the suaveness. Or the poise.
Definitely without the girl.

Without the janitor's job either.
Or the uncontrollable rage.
Or the total disregard for social niceties.

Oh crap! I'm NOT Matt Damon in Good Will Hunting!


PS: sorray for all da trouble :D

PPS: i ij make up for yer trouble ok?

1. The Original Matt Damon/Ben Affleck written_on_paper script of Good Will Hunting
I've read half of it already. Soooper :D.

2. Good Will Hunting Central.
Reviews/Transcripts/The whole deal.

16th August 2005

of first time authors and contrasts drawn.
of nostalgia. and a longing for things past.
of the here and now. and cookie man cookies.
and a bit of that tangy mango~orange juice thang i keep handy in the ole icebox.


i'm listening to a disaster called "The Last Mile", a self-composition-thang we played on stage last year.the audience was so confused, they dint clap until like 3 minutes after we ended. that the day is so far back in the past, i can safely say "UGH! that sounded bad!" :D

to set the record straight, we DID play well on more than a few occasions.suffice to say that one of our songs is doing the rounds on the bschool circuit :-" {this is me being mysterious, as usuale}

today. was spent typing out a "draft plan". felt more bskoolish than most other days out here.
bskool dint teach me how to string words together, neither did it teach me how to type into Microsoft Word.
but it seems that watever i do out here gets branded as "that IIM thing that boy does". funny.

ya, in case i dint mention it...there aint no difference where you come from, out here:
they'll call you either "institute" people, or the more common "IIM" people.
catchall phrase it is. after defending the uniqueness of my school for two whole years, this does take a bit of getting used to i gess.


so i read Mediocre But Arrogant. by Abhijit Bhaduri.

celebrated widely for its vivid and realistic portrayal of business school and everything that comes along with it, or so we was told. well...i'm done with the book....and well....ummm...lemme jes say that i'm sure that some of us in this blogsphere woulda bin more than able to string together a bunch of stories from bskool and leave the reader mesmerized and panting for more...let's not go that far...i'm willing to wager a tidy sum that some of us here would be able to string together a simple, coherent, interesting read abt bskool...which is far more than what Mr. Bhaduri has been able to achieve. True, some of the moments in the book caught me off~guard and took me back to where it all began...but heck, that's cause i kno what he's writing about...i was willing to grant him brownie points for casually slipping in "Bodhi Tree" and the like in there somewhere...but for the rest of the uncivilized world, it'd be gobbly-de-friggin-gook for sure.

i tried out the book on someone who doesnt understand the background of the book the way i do...passed it on to a writer we all know very well ... she couldn't get past the seventh page...she was gasping...for air that was NOT full of some Father Hathaway and his life history...she demanded to kno why this Bhaduri chap couldn't hold her interest the way the author of Five Point Someone did, right from the word go.

oh well. one not-so-good book in a week. chalega.
coz the other book i read last week more than made up for this :D

Vernon God Little. by DBC Pierre.
sheer genius, for a first novel. or so said the review.
heck, i dont kno any i'll simply call it "sheer genius", without the rider.
they say it's fit to rank with the Catcher in the Rye. believe it. i do.

lovely. highly recommended.
i mean..."you wanna see your God?" maaan. noice it was.
kinda trite ending. but tis more than made up by the style with which the book carries itself.

time to crash.
1:14AM. might wanna reach office before 10AM 2day.

let's_see :-"

PS: this post is from 16th august. i ij get net 2day. so i ij post now. pliss to not mind ya?
