Dedicated to all those souls who dry run...

Some things in life are bad,
They can really make you mad,
Other things just make you swear and curse,
When you're chewing life's gristle,
Don't grumble,
Give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best.

Always look on the bright side of life.
Always look on the light side of life.

If life seems jolly rotten,
There's something you've forgotten,
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you're feeling in the dumps,
Don't be silly chumps.
Just purse your lips and whistle.
That's the thing.

Always look on the bright side of life.
Always look on the right side of life,

For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word.
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin.
Give the audience a grin.
Enjoy it. It's your last chance, anyhow.

Always look on the bright side of death,
Just before you draw your terminal breath.

Life's a piece of shit,
When you look at it.
Life's a laugh and death's a joke it's true.
You'll see it's all a show.
Keep 'em laughing as you go.
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.

Always look on the bright side of life.
Always look on the right side of life.

The calm of code

And the excitement of working on a screen with green characters on black. I can't explain it anymore than I can explain first love, or the pang of pity I feel for all those who'll never be able to understand the beauty of deb. I'd surely put it in but then I cannot risk having no os now. Z if you are reading I'm running naked linux (stripped to the bare essentials) now from my flash disk. Need apt so that I can install video4linux. It's three in the morning but I do enjoy the quiet of my own mind.....

the nuptial nub

Placement at a B school and an Indian wedding is more or less the same. The candidates are virginal in their ignorance, much like a bride. They want everything to be perfect on that day. The company much like the groom is in a position to make outrageous demands. The candidates don't want any company to know that they are flirting around with other companies, while the companies are so much in denial that they expect every candidate to attend only their process. The college authorities much like the bride's family is impotent, highly uninterested and only interested in washing the bride off their hands.
It's only much later that the bride realizes that she is going to be brutally fucked, a part of the bargain for being fed all life long, not that it is in anyway assured. And we have the gall to be proud of our Indian B-schools????

a brilliant song....

and so I smile...

A personal loss

I lost all my data today. Technology does that to you. It extracts a sacrifice before it lets you tame it. Thankfully only my pictures got deleted. Let me list out the stuff that went out:

1. My sketches (around 0.5 gb)
2. Pictures/Wallpapers/rendered images (around 2 Gb)
3. Personal snapshots of me, friends (around 4 Gb)
4. Stuff that I had written down (round about 2 Gb of text, short stories, articles ) all of them....
5. Poems, lots of poems...

It's a stinging feeling of loss. Ununderstandable to anyone else. But something which means that I have cut off ties to a land, a time of long before. Au revoir my childhood. I am ready to move on....
