By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.
- Confucius

The pic is some neem leaves :)

Deep Blue

If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things in nature have a message you understand, Rejoice, for your soul is alive.
- Eleanora Duse
So, is your soul alive?

Anyway, the pic is a blue flower, some stray plant growing near my house after rains :)

I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong.
- Abraham Lincoln
Hmmm...the pic is first few drops of rain :)

If God would have wanted us to live in a permissive society, he would have given us Ten Suggestions and not Ten Commandments.
- Zig Ziglar

Now a days there is a lot of noise in media on freedom and rights of so called 'classes of people', the kind of people who want freedom to exert their 'personal choices'. Is this the same 'freedom' we faught the british for? I dont know. Does democracy mean allowing people to do anything even though they want to do stupid things? I really wonder whether people are making rational demands or this is just what is called 'individualism' in a capitalist democratic society. Maybe we are streaching the word 'freedom' too much.

The pic, some kind of bird you find here. Looks like its thirsty, isnt it?
There is shortage of water in pune and the old lady who stays two blocks away has her overhead tank overflowing at 3 o clock at night. Now since I am working in high tech, the question that comes to my mind is, "Are these the people for whom we are developing better technology? People who just know how to consume and how to waste?"
