Life is good..... Love is enormous...

It always happens!!! When you least expect it, something happens that makes you see, what you have been staring at for so long, but still missing. I guess its because of the ripples... its hard to make out what's there. But once the ripples subside, things become clearer, on two planes. The bottom is now visible and we see the object that caused the disturbance. Looking a bit closer to the surface we see our reflection and know how the disturbance has changed us. Thank God life is not ripple free ....

Speaking of ripples that reminds me of this picture I saw at a factory in Bombay where I was undergoing my training in process control instrumentation. I was the only girl in the training batch of fifteen. So there we are standing near the control valves and checking out the huge machinery and instruments when this guy walks in, kinda old ... obviously in charge of that particular process. He starts showin us how the various paramters are controlled and measured ... we are eagerly li…

Some interesting folks .....

A few folks who have kept me busy these last few days ...

Carlton
Missed that kid, so asked the nuns for his address and visited him at home. As usual he was up there on the window sill, twirling a twine & muching on chocolate. He has this thing for twines, rope, string, rubber band, thread, anything flexible, curly and long .... he keeps twirling that piece around and reducing it into many small twirly pieces.

Jeff Corwin
I like him ..... a lot. He's funny, witty and he is really passionate about his work. You can feel his love and admiration for the animals and his " The Jeff Corwin Show" is always exciting. He just knows so much about animals, every kind of creature ..... heck, he can look at a pile of dung, poke it around a bit and tell you which animal deposited it there!

Ralph Waldo Emerson
Now he is somebody ..... who introduced me to Transcendentalism. Yeah, I never knew that was a word too. What does it mean ..... it's deep stuff ...deals with the soul, the…

Get Real ....

Heard this country song today .....

A baby's born in the middle of the night in a local delivery room
They grab his feet smack him till he cries
He goes home the next afternoon
Before you know he's off to school and he graduates in May
Goes out and gets a Ph.D. and then cures all sorts of things
Wins a Nobel Prize and saves a million different lives
The world's a better place for all he's done
It's funny when you think about the reason he's alive
Its all because two people fell in love .......

Man! What a dumb song!!!
How long are they gonna keep churning out crap like this .....

FREAKING MESS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You know you have a lot of work to do, and you are just sitting there staring at it and ...you can't get to it, you can't do anything about it, cause of these thoughts that keep hovering around inside your head!!!! They swirl, knock each other, create a mess inside ..... and they don't give a damn to REASON!!!!And the worst of the whole lot are the javelin thoughts! These thoughts keep piercing through the others and they keep impinging on the sides of your head, making your head feel like its gonna explode any minute.These javelin thoughts are the question thoughts, they have to know the answer at once or else they will just keep pounding away inside your head. Yeah like I can go around asking folks " Excuse me, my head is exploding, so could you please tell me why you are the way you are???"

Everythin is one big bowl of Avial .... I HATE avial!!!


And CHRIS???? seriously??? are they lacking a hemisphere? Whatever !!! (american idol)
Elvis saved the day though ..…

Dumb.......

Yesterday all of us happened to meet online, anju, shil and me. And we weren't exactly in the best of moods ... we were all bugged with somethin or someone. Since we weren't exactly being rays of sunshine, anju said lets make up a story (each of us tells one line as the story progresses). And this is how it started ...
Anju : Once upon a time .... (yeah, anju is hopeful, she likes stories that start like that and end with happily ever after)
Shil : There was a handsome boy .... (and shil is a hopeless romantic! She's forever hooked on romantic stuff. Very soon she would have brought in a beautiful girl, and eventually love would follow along with babies!!!)
Me : Who was gay ... (I was in mood to listen to any romantic ... crap. Sorry shil! So I made the guy gay ....)
After that the story went downhill .... he eventually meets a penguin and the rest is not important. But since I screwed up the first attempt, I decided to try again .....
So we did try again and this is how the…

Whatever .......

Frankly I don't give a DAMN anymore!!!

It is a question of cubic capacity. A man with so large a brain must have something in it.

Well, it's not the calm waters but the turbulent seas that give life its Zest .....
and thanks to the people (who I hardly know, people I don't know and wouldn't really care to know) life sure is rather .......... zestful ;-)
