Straight Angle™: June 2004

Also reading a book of Porter-"Post- Capitalist Society". Nice book and as usual with Porter-revolutionary ideas. His aneathema to socialism is well known and he proves it by telling this-" Darwin, Marx, Freud is the trinity often cited as the "Makers" of the world. Marx would be taken out and replaced by F.W.Taylor, if there were any Justice in the world". But I think in all fairness to Marx we need to acknowledge the fact that had he not been there, we wouldnt have got a Philosophy that changed the world forever. The power of the philosophy is great to this date, but the manner in which it had been understood and implemented in the world leaves much to be desired, and may be a reason for its failure. It might be satisfying to say that " I said Communism will Fail even b4 1989" but what would have happened had Gorbhoshev not implemented Glasnost and Perestorika. God only knows. It is always easy to claim to have predicted an event after it had happened. This doesnt mean that I support Socialism. Iam undecided at this point about my idealogical leanings, coz I like the ideals of Socialism, but the way it is Implemented- Sorry
His name was Fleming, and he was a poor Scottish farmer. One day, while trying to make a living for his family, he heard a cry for help coming from a nearby bog. He dropped his tools and ran to the bog. There, mired to his waist in black muck, was a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the lad from what could have been a slow and terrifying death.
The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman's sparse
surroundings. An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father of the boy Farmer Fleming had saved.
"I want to repay you," said the nobleman. "You saved my son's life."
"No, I can't accept payment for what I did," the Scottish farmer replied waving off the offer. At that moment, the farmer's own son came to the door of the family hovel.
"Is that your son?" the nobleman asked.
"Yes," the farmer replied proudly.
"I'll make you a deal. Let me provide him with the level of education my own son will enjoy. If the lad is anything like his father, he'll no doubt grow to be a man we both will be proud of." And that he did. Farmer Fleming's son attended the very best schools and in time, graduated from St. Mary's Hospital Medical School in London, and went on to become known throughout the world as the noted Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of
Years afterward, the same nobleman's son who was saved from the bog was stricken with pneumonia.
What saved his life this time? Penicillin.
The name of the nobleman? Lord Randolph Churchill.
His son's name? Sir Winston Churchill.
Someone once said:
What goes around comes around.
Work like you don't need the money.
Love like you've never been hurt.
Dance like nobody's watching.
Sing like nobody's listening.
Live like it's Heaven on Earth.
Looks like nobody is seeing!!!!!!!!!
Thats what I can think of now. Free for the rest of the day(Virtual not real). Thinking of the work ahead I know Iam barely free. But this blog stuff has enthused me beyond my own imagination, that i still continue inspite of everything.
Yesterday, went to our old room in the hostel. Last year we stayed at room number 418 and this year we have moved on to 218. Just out of curiosity want to know who is there in that room. Really disgusted. The guy there doesnt seem to be in the mould of management. I am surprised to find him meak and very reluctant to speak. May be he was busy with something. But I didnt carry very good impression( In the sense how we were in the beginning). He is from Mumbai and it surprised me more.I have thought that people from big metros would be more outgoing but had to adjust my views.
The summer project presentation hasnt got off. As the Head Home Finance and our Guide told me I didnt go for the presentation. But only after coming here I came to know that my Project Mate(Classmate too ) Jayesh has cancelled the presentation. I dont know how will that go down with the company. But Still we havent received our feedback forms and the certificates from the company. That had to be submitted here in the institute b4 this monady. I dont what will we be doin. God will save us. Amen.

Got to know how to post Tamil Bloggs. would like to do it in my mother tongue.
Sunday, June 27, 2004
Thinking what would be the use of Bloggs for me other than just putting my thoughts for public view. This would it be useful in any sense. Is it just like the new toy gifted to a kid- the attraction fades away by the day and at the end of a week the toy itself wouldn't be there. Also want to blog in Tamil but dont knou how. Have to do a fact finding session on it and then incorporate it here.
The train journey as usual throws up many an interesting characters. One such was a man in his late 30's who borrowed "The Hindu" which I bought at Calicut Station. He started reading the Newspaper at around 9.15 AM and hasnt finished it till around 11.00. He has been reading all the news inculding classifieds and advertisements and Tender Notices. Infact I have bought the paper Just then and was planning to read it along with the Breakfast.Had to swallow the Breakfast without the taste of news.
