Seasons gone...

Memoirs of last rainy season.

So much i have changed in this one year. And now these pics seem so remote to me. I wonder whether it was really me who took these and whether i was really present there at all. I feel so transparent, i pass through unhurt and indifferent. I just exist, with the wind, with the rains, with the sun and to do nothing but just breathe. Like Ayn Rand says "Feels like nothing significant happened because nothing significant ever happened on earth." But it feels so serene. To be calm, unhurt and innocent.

Smiling buddha - part II

Photo courtesy - Google
My version of smiling buddha :D
I smile a lot and i smile naturally, i mean very few times i force myself a smile. When i was a kid, my first set of teeth was very bad. I used to look really funny when smiling. But finally i got good teeth like my mother has. Have you ever seen a sweet girl in bangalore with loong silky hair, cool dark black eyes and traditional clothing?
If she is smiling then may be its me!
When i first saw this picture, to my surprise, i found myself smiling!
How about you? How often you smile?

Some selected quotes of Ayn Rand -

The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.

Force and mind are opposites; morality ends where a gun begins.

Every man builds his world in his own image. He has the power to choose, but no power to escape the necessity of choice.

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor
stupidity are good motives.

A government is the most dangerous threat to man's rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.

The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.

God... a being whose only definition is that he is beyond man's power to conceive.

Evil requires the sanction of the victim.

So you think that money is the root of all evil. Have you ever asked what is the root of all money?

It only stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting the sacrificial
offerings. Where there's service, there is someone being served. The man who speaks to you of
sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master.

Achievement of your happiness is the only moral purpose of your life, and that happiness, not pain or mindless self-indulgence, is the proof of your moral integrity, since it is the proof and the result of your loyalty to the achievement of your values.

Achieving life is not the equivalent of avoiding death.

To say "I love you" one must first be able to say the "I."
