New year resolutions, sort of

Smrana Mitra quotes on her blog:

“Read books are far less valuable than unread ones. The library should contain as much of what you do not know as your financial means, mortgage rates, and the currently tight read-estate market allows you to put there. You will accumulate more knowledge and more books as you grow older, and the growing number of unread books on the shelves will look at you menacingly. Indeed, the more you know, the larger the rows of unread books. Let us call this collection of unread books an antilibrary.”

What this means to me:

1) I should start reading books again. In college, I would read 2-3 books a month. Last year I read only 2.

2) A special folder on my hard drive stays. Its eating 10 gigs but the knowledge within is priceless.

Amul tells it the way it is

 

 The Amul girl has always been associated with a childlike innocence. So, it was very discomforting to see her in the midst of a heinous act. I think it’s a strong statement and a telling commentary. It also reflects the confusion and fear in people’s mind that this incident has caused: it could have been the utterly butterly girl on that fateful night.

Hello world, Again!

How long this one will last, I wonder.
