Random thoughts..

With so much politics on this blog over the past couple of posts, I thought it was getting too boring. I can't really think of something funny to post because my caffeine-addled head is working on writing something about mobile phones or something like that. So, this is just a stream of consciousness post, it will make no sense whatsoever to anybody, but it might make sense in bits. Read it, if you feel like it!
EDITED : Boo-Hoo, people cry! Chalo, I have never bitched about office here because I have never felt the need to, and I shouldn't have started. But you call a spade a spade and people with inflated assumptions of themselves and spreading canards (to all the wrong people) shall not be missed. Need I say more?
Office affairs aside, a couple of my dearest friends had a baby recently, and to steer clear of this chacha/mama business, I've decided that I'll become an uncle. But while I am congratulating my friends on their baby, I'm really unsure that I would want to bring in a child into this world right now. Not that I have a the requiste other ingredient for a baby - a woman - anywhere near-by, but the world today sometimes does freak me out. Global warming, rising sea levels, crazy displays of luxury, I think everyone has lost it. It is as if someone spilled a gallon of LSD into the world's supply of drinking water (But forgot Africa as usual).
One day you read about 25,000 people marching to Delhi protesting against the SEZ scheme which is being used by a bunch of Congress-minions as the most organised land-grab in history, and then you read this. Honestly, I saw a picture of the house to be in this month's UK edition of Esquire (their website doesn't work), it is frikking insane! I'm no admirer of Che or even Communism for that matter, but such insane, ostentatious displays of wealth is leading India on the road towards its own 1789.
I think I'm worrying too much, I need to go home and spend some more time on my Xbox360 and smoke a bit more. But, really, it is a bit crazy this world, isn't it?

K, imagine if our medieval ancestors had stopped producing babies despairing at all the famines, epidemics, wars, pillaging, inquisitions, rampant religious intolerance and what not.

Despite how screwed up we still are, it must be said that the human story has been one of progress, not civilizational decline.

Well, K, I understand this is YOUR blog and you have the freedom to write whatever you want. But, somehow, I don't find your rant about colleague in good taste.

Also, please sell the XBox and get hold of a Nintendo Wii, life will never be the same again (till the next version of sliced bread, yes.)

If you met the colleague, you would understand the rant.. I don't take very very nicely to being compared to a 'mongrel'.. I have a fairly long memory and while I would like to believe I am an affable sort, I really don't like some sorts of people...
