It just lingers..

I read this post last week. I read it again today.

I don’t know how this sounds to me after a few months or years. Yet I’m writing this.

I know I’m not qualified to talk about the topic written over there – startup – as I don’t have the necessary knowledge to write or to talk about it. Yet, this thought keeps lingering in me – and in a lot of people out there I guess.

If I can figure out something that matches what’s written in the last 2 paragraphs of the above article, I will take it up. I read/I write, but I’ve not struck at anything like that yet..

New year and resolutions!

I can’t recollect if I’d set myself a few resolutions last year. But, if I’m asked was 2012 any good for me, I’d say, “Yes!”.

Yes, because, without getting discouraged,  I wrote more on my blog. Well, I started this blog this year, though. I’d this bad habit of deleting my blogs if I didn’t like them after a few days of writing, coz no one read them. I WILL NOT do it anymore. I pledge.

Yes, because, I made a tiny12 contribution to the OpenSource, and to WordPress through my WordPress theme Mimbolove

On the personnel front, I made two mistakes, too, that sometimes make me feel bad about myself. 😦

For 2013,

I think I will want to put on some weight, get some big muscles. Yeah, I brought a small gym kit, and I want to get stronger! I will see how it goes.

Improve my theme to make it more useful to the community, and write at least one new theme, there by becoming sharper.

I can’t get taller anymore even if I drink Horlicks 😉 So just stronger, sharper as year’s resolutions.

– Thanks for reading!

— Wish you a fantabulous year 2013!

The more you know who you are, and what you want

The more you know who you are, and what you want, the less you let things upset you.” 

It’s a quote from the movie “Lost in translation”. It is a wonderful, and hilarious. One of my favorites.

I watch English movies for two reasons. First, I need time to relax after a tiring day. So, watching movie for some time with a plate of food is one way I pick. Second, you know, I find their accent difficult to follow. I wanna improve myself somehow. Movies for resort.. :-0

Lately I experienced the real meaning of this quote in real life. Not through something I did, but with something that my friend felt. While talking on phone a few days ago, he said he was in kind of dilemma deciding on something, and that it was making him sulk a lot. I offered him some advices(I’m bad at free advices, though! ;-0 )

Then, after a few days when I met him again, he was very happy. Happy because he was out of dilemma, and that he knew what he want. I was very happy to see him that way, too.

– So, the more you know who you are and what you want, the less you let things upset you. Makes sense. Doesn’t it?

Prithvi – A Kannada movie

Prithvi – A Kannada movie.

It’s the story of an honest IAS officer and how he manages to fight illegal mining in the state of Bellary, Karnataka.

In one particular scene, a character laments that the border between two states(I wonder why two states can’t have good co-operation while they both belong to India. We are talking about two states, and not countries 😦 ) is changed by local rowdies, who are supposedly great politicians and that the whole area is being exploited for illegal mining. But this officer, despite the counterparts’ political and money power, manages to fight them all, and stop illegal mining.

It is a fact that the two villain characters aren’t fiction.

While I keep hearing that India is corrupted, and it could never get out of this situation, it must be admitted that there is in fact a real good sign of growth, and improvement as the corrupt are being caught, and punished with imprisonment. We have been hearing, and seeing news that the bad are being caught.

To lead a state, and a country, I think there must exist a crew that works just like the Board of Directors of a private organization. People who work with diligence, and passion to make the system better. In contrary, what we now have as politicians, a majority of them, are just greedy, and corrupted and it is our misfortune.
