Unicorn, A way of life ...

Imagine the wings that horses are given,

With a horn to complement, what a mighty beast it becomes!
But alas, these mythical beings, being what they are, the Unicorn is a  beauty! 

The power of the horse so raved for, 
even car's are measured by horsepower!
When a Unicorn is born, you know that invincibility is the aim,
 
Ours is a organization so, filled, with horses of the highest caliber,
When the horns start to grow, complacence sets in.

Prevention is Better than Cure --- A FAD?

A stitch in time saves nine
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

and history teaches us how valuable prevention is. I have heard it umpteen times all my life and I always believed in it.Its foolish to get into trouble if you can prevent it. But even then you find a lot of people doing it

Sink or Swim

When you're a child, you do not have any sort of worries. You're mistakes are pardonable so is you're antics. Its when you grow that the world seems to suddenly look very different. Now you're parents don't come often to bail you out of trouble and you stand at the point where you need to decide on things that could change you're lives drastically. Are you ready for this?

India has changed drastically from the days of the old. I was speaking to my uncle the other day when he made a observation, " Lijoe, you earn at least twice as much as I earn. This is after 15 years of service in a bank. I take care of a family of 5 with it and still have enough that I am not in a debt trap!" I did feel bad, life can be quite confusing, but then it's the era I live in.

Four Years Hence...

"Therefore you must always keep in mind that a path is only a path; if you feel you should not follow it, you must not stay with it under any conditions. Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn't, it is of no use. Both paths lead nowhere; but one has a heart, the other doesn't. One makes for a joyful journey; as long as you follow it, you are one with it. The other will make you curse your life. One makes you strong; the other weakens you. "-- Don Juan as quoted by Carlos Casteneda

Las Vegas, The Sin City

My trip to US in 2005, culminated with a very wonderful tour of Las Vegas, the sin city.

My friend, John Valavi who came to do his MS in US was graduating In August and got placed at Intel. He just had a window of two weeks to join his job. I guess it was perfect timing. He decided to have his perfect graduation party celebrating it with me.

Do only what you love!!

When I was a child, I had no worries. All the world was fun, life was fun. There was no responsibilities or burdens. Problems, well yes, like all children, I had lot of problems. I had problems that I wanted to eat hamburgers only, I wanted to watch cartoons but the TV channels only showed it for an hour a day. In school, my biggest problem was the assignments, writing two pages spellings and my God, those four line cursive writings.

Out of Sight is Out of Mind

My Grandmother is a very sweet person of 82 years of age. She is very healthy for her age and she stills takes it upon her to find time to walk upto my house and visit me once a week or fortnight. I think if I walk the same distance, I would be out of breath! The drawback of being a lazy software engineer.

Love your country

"Love your country.  Your country is the land where your parents sleep, where is spoken that language in which the chosen of your heart, blushing, whispered the first word of love; it is the home that God has given you that by striving to perfect yourselves therein you may prepare to ascend to him." -- Giuseppe Mazzini
