Random thoughts from the mind of a random number generator

Random thoughts:

Heard over Radio:

If you have the alphabets in your name to form the word mint you stand to won prizes worth Lakhs from i-mint.

Thats easy! I have enough alphabets in my name to spell mint, ant,hash,lakhs,aim, halt, sham, list, last,lash, mash, hint, lint, knit,hit,aha(the expression)tail,shit!!

thought no.2:

Every scripture written was a code of living of sorts for the age in which it was written. The Ramayana Mahabharatha, Thirukkural Guru Granth Sahib. What have we written? Isnt it high time we wrote something to capture our ways for posterity.

thought no: 3

I am reading a travelogue in which this very interesting character travels along a route tracing the Himalayas. He meanders into China and meets a very interesting character who conducts operas. He recollects a scene from the opera in which the old man plays a soothing tune and asks the audience,”Was it peaceful?” to which the audience agrees. Pat came the reply from the performer to their nods-“Then why not play it in the Isreal-Palestine border.” He was playing to a high profile audience which included American Diplomats. I sometimes wish I could say something like that to someone. Sad part is no one is listening.

But it almost heartening to know that the firing on the Isreal Palestine border affects this man in China as much as it affects me to hear about the emergency in Pak.

I had a very interesting conversation with a young man from a premier business school. He was of the opinion that during campus recruitment, recruiters should not ask students their grades.

I say, students should not ask the compensation figures once they join an organization!

Thought no:5

The baseline expectation of people from life has risen. Makes it that much more difficult for me to cope.

Thought no: 6
Have you wondered why cities/areas which once flourished in trade/learning are in ruins/decline now?
Persia, Egypt, institutes of learning-Nalanda and many more.

Wonder what will happen to Mumbai, Delhi Pune soon.

Thought no:7

DLF is considering, taking in construction workers on their rolls, providing them good housing facilities and thus dissuade them from going back to their villages during the peak harvest season. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

thought no:8

I look forward endlessly to the day before any festivity. The anticipation is palpable in the air and the actual day of the festival pales in comparison to the evening before. The preparations, the hope of enjoyment excites me to no end.

Happy Diwali ppl!
