Quo Vadis ?

This where I am (other than being here), this September…

I am reading:

  • Open Secrets – India’s Intelligence unveiled by Maloy Krishna Dhar
  • Shotokan's secret – The hidden truth behind Karate's fighting origin by Dr.Bruce Clayton
  • Too Loud, Too Bright, Too Fast, Too Tight by Sharon Heller

I am listening to:

  • My wife, as always…
  • Byrds, Kadri Gopalnath on the CD Changer (Turn, Turn, Turn – both lyrically and musically is just a great song)
  • Old Tamil Songs, PF, Eagles, S&G in my car
  • Bruce S, Enigma etc on the PC (if I ever get around to sit at my desk)

I am amused by:

  • People who are amused that Lalu has been invited to IIM, having pigeon-hole’d him
  • This picture joke that someone sent me
  • How we argue D/L method is a useless one when India loses one on that

I am amazed by (or I'm humbled by):

  • The creativity in the blog-land
  • The complexity of creating a new business

I am frustrated by:

  • Being part of Bangalore’s traffic problem – I’m going with the flow (eh ?)
  • Having to temporarily suspend Karate due to injury and having to opt for poor substitute (running)
  • The complexity of creating a new business

I am intrigued by and drawn to:

  • The mysticism of oriental martial arts
  • The economic opportunity in India
  • The complexity of creating a new business

I am impressed by:

  • New breed of Tamil directors who experiment themes that aren’t black and white and dwelve in wide spectrum of grey (saw பட்டியல், திருட்டு பையலே, தலைநகரம் recently)
  • Vijay’s comic timing in கில்லி (reminded me of Rajni in தம்பிக்கு எந்த ஊரு)

I am still impressed by (continue to be):

  • Dravid’s Technique and his level-headed approach
  • Watching US Open and
  • Wimbledon, Federer’s brilliance, even when he is struggling (make that quadruple-y impressed)

1. for everyone who argues against D/L, ask them to explain it first. there ends the argument.

2. Complexity of creating a new business ?? Does (y)our boss know this ??

3. The traffic problem would be solved if people choose zens over endeavors. ahem, ahem.

4. Vijay was tolerable only in gilli. The rest of the movies, konjam kashtam dhan.
