Alive and Breathing

December 30, 2012

Sorry to disappoint I’m not dead. Back from an un-intended break !

For almost a year I could not muster time to write one short blog !! I’m the best of all the worsts in time-management. Need anymore proof ?

Its not that I ignored this space completely, blogs were always on my mind, topics would pop-up and fade out. One thing I know for fact now is that blogs are best written when the topic is hot and fresh in mind. Pushing it to later squeezes the juice out of the matter and the motivation to write.

Thats not all, I’ve two blogs, its hard to decide where to post what. I’m more fond of my wordpress blog than the one on blogger. It takes me to my past, and makes me smile on how I used to be and what I’ve become ūüôā Not sure in a good or bad way.

Closing my blogger blog !
More coming your way here, get set !!

Define Greatness !

August 16, 2010

How do you define greatness ?

One who is the best in what he does ? Numbers and facts of an individual that proves he is great ?

or

One who can arouse emotions in a group of people, every time he comes to do/perform whatever he is good at. The emotion that drives into people when they speak about him/her.

I feel its the latter. No numbers, no certificates can make or prove he or she is great. Its emotions that drives through people makes some one great. Its a charisma that cannot be built in one day. He/She has to go through their ups and downs in the front eyes of the people, achieving and losing many things to be able to drive such emotions. People should be able to relate to what he/she does to understand that he/she is great and celebrate his/her greatness.

I feel greatness is kind of a perception. Its is not a false perception, it is true perception because it get developed over long period of time, sometime it takes life time of a person.

I couldn’t help rubbishing the following article, claiming that Sehwag is greater that Sachin Tendulkar.

Bradman best, Sehwag greater than Sachin: Study

The numbers the economist have come up with does not have anything to do with the greatness of any individual. They are mere a fact of their performances. Some one with best records need not necessarily be great. It the perception of the people that make individual great.


When the Lights Go Out

Thunderstorm arrives, power outage! How do you occupy your time?

Writing, Reading, Hacking and Making Music: My Room

What a right time to ask this question !

At this point in time I’m pursuing multiple hobbies. Power-cut will not matter much. Following are the things that I could do

1. I could pick up a book and start reading.

2. Pick up the guitar and practice the two notes that I know as of today, A Major and E Major.

3. Probably put on my trunks and go for swimming.

4. Pickup my camera and start shooting, objects in different angles.

Worst case forget everything and enjoy a good nice sleep.

Stuck – Blogger’s Block

July 30, 2010
I came across this good post on tips for blogging.
These are simple points but I agree they have on impact on reader. There is one point I face as a blogger. Sometime I get into what I call Blogger’s block, where you cannot think of any topic to blog. I’m currently stuck in one such block. Every topic seems too naive to blog. Laziness also plays some part in this.

<Deep Thought

I plan to break this block by posting some of my travel experiences of last few months. Hopefully that will give my blogging another kickstart.

Humanity does Exist-Good one

May 21, 2010
Received the following mail from a friend. After reading it first thought that struck me was, What was the photographer doing ? waiting for the monkey to open the tap ?
Does the monkey has more humanity than the photographer ?

*********

Dear All

Two blind persons wanted to drink water at the RagiGudda temple, Bangalore. When they were unable to operate the tap, this mother monkey opened the tap for them, allowed them to drink water, drank some water herself and then closed the tap before leaving the scene.

PS: Do share this pic with your friends. It is proof that humanity does exist – even if we humans have forgotten it ourselves…


Illustration on Art of Persuasion

April 18, 2010

Following link points to an interesting illustration on the art of persuasion.

http://theskinnyon.com/Webcomic.aspx?p=20

I’ve experienced this myself. Whenever there are multiple options and there¬†is a lot of¬†uncertainty, on what to do next ? or there are things that I would say NO to, because I am averse of doing it or consider that it is not possible for me, kinds. However once take a stand or make a commitment I tend to go ahead and do it which I earlier would not have done or have hesitated to agree.

Well !! not tried this funda on others. If I get an opportunity I probably can try it out.

However isn’t this manipulating the thoughts of the person to get our job, in a way that the other person gives consent for what we want?


Up in the Air : Movie

March 1, 2010

Watched Up in The Air as planned. The academy award nominations are very deserving for this movie I feel.

Ryan(George Clooney) lives every man’s dream (at-least mine). He travels fanatically, free from relationship hassles, he is all alone doing whatever he wants. Kind of surreal isn’t it ? everything going for him. Until Alex (Vera Farmiga) comes into his life. Ryan and Alex both enjoy spending time with each other. Things start changing after attending his sisters marriage with Alex.

He begins to feel the emptiness in his life, even though he has got everything he has ever wanted. As he understands the truth of his life, he gets surrounded by loneliness and the movie ends.

I feel that in every ones life there will be such moment(s), this is when you realize that all you were chasing was nonsense. There is nothing you can get out of it, it just brings void to your life. Ignorance is bliss in such matters I feel, however the tragedy is one does not stay ignorant all his life. There will be a moment when one will get into this chasm.

There are parts that just displays irony of life. Natalie (Anna Kendrick) an ambitious co-worker of Ryan introduces a new process of firing people online, later her boy friend dumps her by a text message. Just to show life is fair to all, in all ways.

I must say this movie is good one time watch
