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.
