The week

The eventful week has finally come to an end. I've learned a lot in this week. Many of my friends opened up with me and it was touching. If there's any comment i want to give, it's that people are not what you perceive them to be. Most of them have gone through many experiences as much as you or more than you.

Your rainbow is slightly shaded white.


What is says about you: You are a contemplative person. You appreciate quiet moments. People depend on you to make them feel secure.

I am Addicted

I am addicted
I've collected footsteps before dawn
seen places I never knew existed
run to the moon and back
I'm a rabbit for the neighbourhood dogs
obey the voice in my head
let the music carry me when I couldn't
raced against yesterday
let the world be my witness
measured myself in metres, kilometers
and finally in character
I've plugged into a higher purpose
left this world and come back changed

People experience different things. I see some of my friends clouded and enjoying love and i see some suffering and broke from love. These people don't experience the same thing. I wish i shared joy as much as i empathized.
My friend said crystal meth makes your face disfigured, but then i said that's not the reason why they take it.. to be clear i'm quoting from trainspotting "take the best orgasm you've ever had and multiply it with a 1000 and still you are noway near it" about heroin. When people who wants to live the typical society life hear this, they frown. Not a fault, fact everyone strives to live such life, though some people can't. Some people might take harmful (i no longer know what i really mean by harmful) things thinking that it somehow will not affect them. Some people would have given up everything in life so that it doesn't matter to them anymore (like Nicholas Cage in Leaving Las Vegas). I wish i had a point to be made.

and now for the ordinary
You have a right to kill me. You have a right to do that... but you have no right to judge me - Apocalypse Now

One man's junk is another man's treasure

My friend interviewed with google and got through it. But she was unwilling to join google. She had another interesting offer. For me google was like heaven at that time. I pointed her Benji Smith's interview with google. A must read. Today thinking about something, suddenly i realized that one man's junk is another man's treasure.
There are tons of things that i consider treasure in my life, but from your point of view they are all junk .. and similarly i consider many things junk which you consider treasure

T42 down

My trusted office laptop went down yesterday. I can say surely that it's the best system i ever used. It's almost 3 years old (or more). They must've paid a lot to get 2GB RAM at that time. I never shut it down, it will be downloading or running a J2EE server or running vmware all the time. Sad.. hope it's a small problem.


I wrongly doubted T42 :( .. The IT guy comes, takes out the battery, blows some dust off of it and voila! it starts working.
I had removed battery, cleaned RAM, you name it ... but then

Scars will remain

I used to love science when i was in high school. I believe i started thinking properly from 8th standard onwards. I had varying interests as each year passed by. From physics to chemistry to maths.

I looked at my face and found a scar today. It happened because of an accident. I had a library next to my house. I took a membership there when i was in 8th. Initially i used to read all the detective novels ranging from Sherlock Holmes to local ones. Then i started taking some electronics books. There were books on how you could repair radio, about chemical experiments etc. I made a small collection of electronics items courtesy of some of my relatives. I bought a soldering iron, some coils etc. I badly wanted to make a crystal radio. The idea of running radio without battery fascinated me. I didn't have much money that time so i had to settle on a low quality soldering iron. Its wire was plastic and was not cloth wrapped. One day while soldering, i accidentally placed it on the wire. It melted and i took it in hand without knowing it and got an electric shock. The iron fell over my face and my throat. It was horrible. Walking around school with a bandage around the neck was embarrassing.
The scar remains.
