Cr** That I Sometimes Ponder Upon

12 Jan

cr** that I sometimes ponder upon

  • Life and the various aspects of it that doesnt fit with it at all
  • Living and the “myth” that life has to be lived only in “happiness”
  • Pain and its different avatars, sometimes humanoids and androids
  • Love and the chaos that it generates when it happens, and our so much liking to it
  • Decision making and y logic is so rarely used to do it
  • Necessary evils and vices of life and the so much ignorance about them
  • Sex and the seclusion of it from the mainstream living, to make stupid people look more intelligent
  • Phenomenon in which people’s intention and attempts are about not getting successful

आरम्भ है प्रचंड…

30 Dec

Trying to decipher my way

आरम्भ है प्रचंड
बोले मस्तकों के झुण्ड
आज जंग की घडी की तुम गुहार दो
आन बाण शान या की जान का हो दान
आज इक धनुष के बाण पे उतार दो
आरम्भ है प्रचंड

You have to have a big start today, but there are many thoughts. This war demands you to sacrifice love, life and lust. But dont let those thoughts deter your decision making. Let it be a one shot decision, let go of the inconsistencies and uncertainties and just do it

मन करे सो प्राण दे
जो मन करे सो प्राण ले
वही तो एक सर्वशक्तिमान है

कृष्ण की पुकार है
ये भगवत का सार है
की युद्ध ही तो वीर का प्रमाण है
कौरवों की भीड़ हो या
पांडवों का नीद हो
जो लड़ सका है वोही तो महान है

Although whether there is God or not, the power of life lies absolutely with the one who has the ability to create. Power is not to govern or rule, but to be able to differentiate yourself from the weak. One who wins in the end has the power to showcase, but one who fights till the end is the most powerful, from the inside.

जीत की हवस नहीं
किसी पे कोई वश नहीं
कया ज़िन्दगी है ठोकरों पे मार दो
मौत अंत है नहीं
तो मौत से भी क्यूँ डरे
ये जाके आसमान में दहाड़ दो
आरम्भ है प्रचंड…

Winning isn’t everything. Because you can’t fix winning. So what if you see a failure, you aren’t supposed to give up at all. Die but die gracefully, Bapu did that. He knew he was gonna die in that period of 2-3 weeks. He made up his mind for the “Hey Ram”. But he did not leave what he was doing. He made a point to get the voice, not his own, but of his followers reach the white ears

हो दया का भाव
या की शौर्य का चुनाव
या की हार का वो घाव
तुम ये सोच लों

या की पूरे भाल पर
जला रहे विजय का
लाल लाल ये गुलाल
तुम ये सोच लों

रंग केसरी हो या
मृदंग केसरी हो या
की केसरी हो ताल
तुम ये सोच लों

जिस कवी की कल्पना में
ज़िन्दगी हो प्रेम गीत
उस कवी को आज तुम नकार दो
भीगती नसों में आज
फूलती रगों में आज
आग की लापत का तुम बघार दो
आरम्भ है प्रचंड…

If your friends tell you that this life is just to be “enjoyed” leave that friend. He is not a friend. He is a foe is disguise, unknown to you and unknown to himself, because he does not know the facts of life. Life is to be lived with the war, the war to accept failure and keep fighting for the win.

Let the brave inside you come out time and again, to bring about change, revolution and revolt. No matter how small, but if it is changing or creating a new path, it is significant.

A road, that is less of thorns and rocks is a road that is just not made for the man, its made for the snails and make sure you are not one of them.

What you may not have thought while watching “The Social Network”

16 Nov

I saw “The Social Network” yesterday. Brings out quite fiercely that what we are is sometimes a result of some kind of occasional hate or apathy or revengeful nature we have due to some incident

Facebook was an instant success, because it gave me power to be boastful about myself without talking much by my mouth.
You could literally say what you wanted to say on it, keeping a lot of what you are intact.
You could show a thousand people what you are doing in a single click

Social network is the defining entity. FB success adheres to the fact that we are constantly in need of attention.

We are attention seekers by default.
We want recognition, acceptance and confirmation.
This applies not only to those who have internet access, but also to everybody else. Anyways, internet did not happen at first. We happened and our wants and needs happened

Being an entrepreneur takes guts and lot of stomach to digest the ill side effects of it. If Mark had to start his own, he would dot it anyways.

If the Winklewoss’s were waiting for 4 weeks (or whatever) for Mark to get back on something concrete, then they were either absolutely crazy or absolutely intelligent enough, to have guaged that Mark has already stolen the idea and working on something of his own
They could either confront Mark any how at earlier stages or could wait for the baby to get born and then ask for a partial claim on the grounds of IP theft

I personally felt that Mark was a victim of the 2nd situation explained above

Nevertheless, movie was very much focused on the lawsuit showing flashbacks of the journey of Mark while developing. But doesn’t leave a huge mark on your minds on the aspect of entrepreneurship

A better movie would be our own "Rocket Singh" that has all the elements of being a pro-entrepreneur movie.

TSN is still one of the best combination of out-of-the-court settlement drama and journey of a high-school grad who built something.

Talk less Do more

15 Nov

Talk less
Do more
Keep doing
You will get results
One day
Small big no matter
Keep going
Tread the way
Walk the road
Take a leap of faith
Take people alongwith
Pick them up along the path
Make them learn, learn from them
Do mistakes, analyse them
Cherish their existence
Thank them for having visited once
Work to create value
Value what you are doing
Cherish the company of good people
Who understand you
Who share your success and your failures
Who understand why you do what you do

Rajanikanth Fever – One Liners

1 Nov

Every once in a big big while, there comes this one person, actor and a legend who people just idolize for all the fun he does on camera

These days this idol is Rajanikanth – the undeniably, undisputed king of all comic action flicks that are made in India

Now I am not a fan of him, nor do I idolize him. But like everybody else, I have taken a special liking to his comic action flicks and dialogue scenes. More than that the long running list of Rajanikanth-Idolizing one liners that have taken a leap these days after release of Robot

There are these mails floating around that states “100 things about Rajanikanth”

If you are reading this, I don’t need to tell you to go and read it, as you have already read it. If you haven’t, you have no right to read this post

 

Today after visiting Palladium, I was coming back and sitting in the train I felt like creating some new ones and adding to the list. I know this is a worthless job but it titillates me and made me happy

So here are few of them:

Indian Railways will soon be adding a new bogie to all its trains which will be for ONLY RAJNIKANTH

When rajnikant travels abroad, he doesn’t need a visa. He automatically becomes the citizen of that country

By 2011, McD will start selling McRajani for Rs.-20 and BigBazaar will start selling at "Every day Rajani price"

In 2020 world’s best selling book would be authored by Rajanikanth and it will be called "How to become Rajanikanth"

A hundred years from now, people will fight over a big issue at that time : "The Rajanikanth Janma Bhoomi"

BitTorrent, Jobs’ Apple and Dying Technologies

28 Oct

Came across few nice articles today. Worth reading at least once. Huge information in all of them.

Quoting them below

BitTorrent’s Bram Cohen Isn’t Limited by Asperger’s

When I read it I couldn’t understand how it would be to think having the syndrome. BitTorrent has single handedly pushed the P2P architecture to grow exponentially

Being Steve Jobs’ Boss

John Sculley talking about how it was being Steve Jobs’ boss and reiterating the fact that Apple is not  brand without Steve Jobs being there to handle it, nurture it. It gives me immense pleasure everytime I read about Jobs. There are so many stories about him, some true, some not. Some untold and some secret. This article not only deals with the p.o.v of a CEO who himself quotes the job was much more suited for Jobs, but also deals with how the competition and other biggies in Japan like Sony was an inspiration for Jobs

Twenty Dying Technologies

Reading this was a pleasure, with WiTricity being my most favorite tech that would and should probably take over conventional electricity. As a child, 10 years old, I used to think we could have electricity that would travel not thru wires but wirelessly. I was never exposed to so much that could know that there were places where I could have gone to research

This set of 20 tech that would soon get extinct is a nice morning read for tech-enthusiasts

I’m OK

3 Oct

I’am OK

Simple phrase. Three words.
Weight of each indicidually is so nil

Together they are powerful

When you hear them, you may not know what else is going on in the mind of the one who says it

Sometimes, its just a way to not let small talk take place

Sometimes, it may be the end of a long fight

Sometimes, it may be the 3rd response in an IM chat. A response that triggers so many questions in the mind of one who reads it

Sometimes it also depicts a state of mind, that makes other perceive you as disinterested

Sometimes, its a motivator for oneself to lift up from a state of dejection.

Sometimes, it just depicts that you are not interested in any further discussions or you just don’t wanna listen to any excused anymore.

You may wanna ponder that when on phone, you say "I’m OK" to a friend who calls you after a long time, you may be hiding something either from yourself or the person on phone

If you stress more on "am", it may describe some sort of frustration inside.

Stressing on "OK" may signify that you are just not concerned at all about any thing or least interested in listening to the other party.
