The wise words

By Couple of Computer Science greats who have taught me so far...

1) No good deed ever goes unpunished

2) You can choose to have a life, I chose career instead.

3) Being a professor is no better than being in a rat race, its just that this rat race has better conditions than other rat races.

4) Working in the industry means promoting slavery.

5) Time needs to get through anyhow, why not work?

6) If you are dumb, you have to be thorough

7) What I say always works.

8) Life is a big trade off

9) Mind is a terrible thing to waste.

10) Worst thing to have in life is a supermodel, what you want is short and fat. (context- explaining the concept of locality)

11) You can only be brilliant once per day

12) So it does the obvious thing which is always a wrong thing.

13) The key is the freedom from frustration

14) When the lessons of history are forgotten, we are doomed to repeat one.

-Many more to come..

8:15 PM Harsh: yyaaaaayy!
 me: lol
Today words fall short to express my feelings. I think this last chat with him sums up everything he was! Witty, Clever, one who actually knew Music without playing an instrument, Truly high on LIFE!  His disability was not even the last thing that could remind you of him. And that's one life, worth lived! Last line in the chat irks me, irritates me, I hate it, it fills me with disgust and sorrow, Not because I couldn't meet him before June, I did finally go there today  to meet him but when I reached, he wasn't there, he had tricked me in his usual way, I could imagine him laughing on me from up in the Heavens and saying, "Dudeeee, you fell for that trap? ha ha, gotcha.."

Dedicated to the phenomenon called "Harsh" which will keep inspiring generations for years to come... 
Rest in peace Brother... You have finally won...

N72--- 24th Oct' 2005 to 12th May 2011-- May your soul rest in peace!!

Yeah. Its true. I have lost my buddy.. My Nokia N72. One buddy who was with me through thick and thin during engineering days and even during job for almost 2 years.
Still remember the craze for Nokia N series phones when they were launched and reaction of my friends on seeing the phone.
16k-- that time for N72--- can't even imagine now!
It had made me the the only "camera phone guy" during those days. :)
Also it was a birthday gift to me by my parents.

Lotta memories associated with it.
It clicked some of my most memorable pics till date. With headphones always ON, it always made my 12km ride to college soothing and equally rocking and that too everyday!
Anyway.. time for a new phone now .. Suggestions are welcome :)

"for what its worth.. it was worth all the while..
I hope you had the time of your life!! "

 My Nokia N72
(Oct 2005-May 2011)

May your soul rest in peace!

I'll get to it, when I get to it.

Do I have any pending action? If not, why not? 
If yes, When will I act to complete it?
Am I going to act at all?
Is the pending action even a valid ask?
Lots and lots of questions involving intricacies...

My only answer is:
'I'll get to it when I get to it. 
Tab tak khaane ka, peene ka, Aur chill maarne ka...'

**How did you do it? 
***Do What?
**How did you become this? I mean I love my life, but I'm not sure I like loving it. 
I think about going for anything more than that, I look at my life and who I am. I'm too far gone. I'm broken.
***Son, I was far more broken than you'll ever be. But look at me now. Don't get me wrong, Settling down is a challenge, its the biggest challenge of your life.
**So how did you do it?
*** A magician never reveals his greatest trick. But I'll give you a hint. You gotta meet the right girl. Who knows? May be you'll meet her tomorrow.
** May be I have met her already.

*** Ohh.. and Thanks for taking good care of this.===========>>
It Means a lot to me that you have kept it safe for all these years.

2nd April 2011, The Day to Remember

Nehru's famous words on 15 Aug 1947 ::
"At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to Life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance..... We end today a period of ill fortune, and India discovers herself again."
I feel the same today: 2nd April 2011: 
I know cricket and freedom fights cannot be compared but I'm just talking about the above words. They are so so so apt for tonight. Today I witnessed the same spirit in every Indian out there. Unity, Joy, Ecstasy, Feeling of a Win as if conquered a WAR.
Pune roads were full of people with flags and 'Team India' Tattoos. This was the same scene across the country. Everyone was hugging each other, dancing, clapping, shouting, with people whom they didn't even know. That explains how huge this win is for India. What it means to Indian people. Its one thing that binds together all Indians despite of all the cultural diversity.

The tears of joy in Dhoni's, Yuvi's, Sachin's and Harbhajan's eyes spoke more than words.
This is something huge. This is something they have provided to a cricket crazy nation which celebrates Diwali on an Indian win and in the same way feels agony on a Indian loss.
Also the 22 year long wait for Sachin finally ends.

I feel great today. I feel privileged to have witnessed this day. 
Its one of those days which I'll remember all my Life and will feel proud about having lived it.
And yes, Tonight, No Indian sleeps. क्यों की आज की रात जश्न की रात है !
