Mundane 2...

When I admire the wonder of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in worship of the Creator.
- Mahatma Gandhi
Yes thats a sunset from our terrace! since we are building another floor up, I hope I will be able to get still better sunset pic than this :D

On other thoughts, ironically(ironically because i have quoted Gandhiji), SM got 8 oscars, and i wonder,"Poverty in India still sells?". By the way, if people are celebrating in the name of acceptance of indian cinema on international scale, then, have they themselves accepted the movie? I used to hear lot of protests till the very last week. Really...people forget so soon!

The laughing philosopher...

Ask a philosopher 'what is philosophy?' or a historian 'what is history?' and they will have no difficulty in giving an answer. Neither of them can really persue his own descipline without knowing what he is searching for. But ask a mathematician 'what is mathematics?' and he may justifiably reply that he does not know the answer but this does not stop him from doing mathematics
-Francois Lasserre
Logic is invincible because in order to combat logic it is necessory to use logic
-Pierre Boutroux
An intellectual is a man who doesnt know how to park a bike
-Spiro Agnew
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends upon the unresonable man.
-George Bernard Shaw
All are lunatics, but he who can analyze his delusion is called a philosopher
-Ambrose Bierce
Lecturing is transfer of information from notes of lecturer to notes of students without anything passing through the minds of either.
And...yes..the plant is really strange one we have, the parent had lot of hair like leaves but the one you see in the pic has something similar to rose leaves hehe :D
