Enlightenment and shyte

January 12, 2010 11 comments

im’ma go away to a deserted island
and read and think and write and shyte
and then there’ll be a thunderbolt
and enlightenment will be mine

meh, thats not how it works,
enlightenment is shyte, overrated and all,
its a dark world, nobody gives a shyte about you!
so what if you want to be the ubermensch?

shyte, shyte, shyte, shyte, shyte!
how shall i make my choices!
tranquilo, tranquilo, silencio, silencio
no hay banda, no hay orquestra, it is all an illusion,

what people will come, what places will come,
will they bring ideas? will they bring peace?
or is it just a kaleidoscope that moves us all in turn?
this restless wanderer will soon find out.

Hello world!

December 26, 2007 3 comments

I love this title- Hello World – “Helllooooo world”!

I have a conflict of interest here. My interest (read loquaciousness) against the readers (read need for brevity). Since this is day 1, I will be breve (please pardon the pun and get used to it, many will follow 😉 ) and get down to business.

First the basic question: What am I going to write about?


My life. To be more specific, each time I create a thought and manage to run it through the gears and crank shafts of my brain and produce a publish-worthy idea, I will publish it!

My travels. Local, national, global, lunar, solar, inter-galactic as and when they happen. I will try and do a photo-blog-travelogue.

Links: I have realized that an important function of a blog is to point people to other blogs!

Technology: Yes, I’ll admit it, I am a geek at heart!

Music: I am going to try and do some simple write ups on the fundamentals of Hindustani Classical Music. This will be an exercise to accompany my efforts to try and gain a deeper understanding of the science behind the art.

Now, the less important question:

Who am I?

At varying levels of abstraction I belong to the following groups:

Software Engineer at Oracle Corp.

23 year old guy who drives a Volkswagen.

Part time bathroom singer.

Wannabe dancer.

(Bad) Elvis impersonator.

Indian, Marathi, Mumbaikar, KoBra.

Seeker of the answer to the question to which this is an answer.

I could go on, but I am sure you get the point!

Thanks for having the patience to reach this point! I hope I have piqued your interest enough to have you come back for a second glance! See you soon.
