glass walls

Calls have gone so cheap. Talk at RS. 2.5/hour!! So many social communities available on the internet. Orkut, Facebook, Myspace... The virtual world enables you to see who is at the farther end and gives you a chance to interact. But does it in anyway lessen the distance between us? Does it in anyway melt those glass walls that surround us? Glass walls.. you can see who is at the other side, you can animate, but what about something bigger? Is it really necessary to melt those walls? This virtual world is certainly lengthening the list of our acquaintances but what about something bigger? What about knowing and more importantly understanding people? Is it important to understand people?

And what about melting those glass walls?

Good Morning!

Its 5:49 AM. And I'm still here. Actually I'm all over the place right now. Not much tired but yes its a fact that I've been studying continuously since last night. Its something that I'm enjoying... YES!! And when enjoying, there aren't any limits. Some might call it crazy but I do like to stretch myself and see how far I can go. Not particularly studious though!

Its such a good morning. Pure. Fresh. Quiet. Ohh.. I can hear that cuckoo bird... I 'll surely inquire amma about mangoes, today.

I think I must get back to work now. I still have a couple of hours before I leave for the university. I'm a little hungry right now. For food and for good music. Well, I've just played a song but I guess I'll have to wait some more time for some food. Amma is sleeping :)

"I'm a superstitious man , and if some unlucky accident should befall Michael, if he is to be shot in the head by a police officer, or be found hung dead in a jail cell... or to be struck by a bolt of lightning, then I'm going to blame some of the people in this room, and then I do not forgive. But with said, I pledge, on the souls of my grandchildren, that I will not be the one to break the peace that we have made today."

Before the Devil Knows You're Dead

"When two brothers organize the robbery of their parents' jewelery store the job goes horribly wrong, triggering a series of events that sends them, their father and one brother's wife hurtling towards a shattering climax."

Outstanding movie!! Flawless direction and superb performances. It explores dysfunctions of relationships, futility of human soul and insanity of a crime stricken mind, all at the same time. A crime thriller with a class!!

Rating: 8/10 - Strongly Recommended!

Major "GENERAL" Nothing!!

I'm not really someone who loves to simplify. Nor do I believe in generalizations. I think that generalities survive merely in science books and the real world is far too slippery for the generals and ideals to stand. But sometimes, coming across the same things and people every other day, the desire to explore everything distinctively blurs away. Even though its for a very short time, I do get expecting and identifying the same attributes in everyone. And I think its happens with everyone of us. Facing the same thing 10 times, you are bound to foresee it coming again. You might wish for something different but you will expect the same!

I'm happy that these simplifications and generalizations don't lasts long. At least in my life. No matter how monotonous that whining and giggling might get, I feel I still have that much desire, that much energy to listen to them and isolate at least one note that really makes the difference. A note that defines individualism.
