Dylan Magic !

Crimson flames tied through my ears
Rollin' high and mighty traps
Pounced with fire on flaming roads
Using ideas as my maps
"We'll meet on edges, soon," said I
Proud 'neath heated brow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

Half-wracked prejudice leaped forth
"Rip down all hate," I screamed
Lies that life is black and white
Spoke from my skull. I dreamed
Romantic facts of musketeers
Foundationed deep, somehow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

Girls' faces formed the forward path
From phony jealousy
To memorizing politics
Of ancient history
Flung down by corpse evangelists
Unthought of, though, somehow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

A self-ordained professor's tongue
Too serious to fool
Spouted out that liberty
Is just equality in school
"Equality," I spoke the word
As if a wedding vow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

In a soldier's stance, I aimed my hand
At the mongrel dogs who teach
Fearing not that I'd become my enemy
In the instant that I preach
My pathway led by confusion boats
Mutiny from stern to bow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

Yes, my guard stood hard when abstract threats
Too noble to neglect
Deceived me into thinking
I had something to protect
Good and bad, I define these terms
Quite clear, no doubt, somehow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

It does not make sense by any stretch of imagination. The whole thing, it's nonsense.

What we are seeing is a cold-war type patent race. I am no expert, but Motorola must have some serious patents in it's kitty. Integrating the 2 companies is gonna be a nightmare. All you know, free Pizzzas added to the Motorola overheads might make the whole business unprofitable :)

Anyway, time will tell !

Back !

I thought I had moved on from blogging.
Isn't blogging dead anyway ?
We have Twitter now right ?

Today is just one of those days. Felt like writing. Infact, stumbled upon some old mails from the small lot of people who used to read my blog. They actually took the effort to track me down and get in touch. Some actually are still friends. Awesome !

Life has changed so much. Things/People/Relationships I thought are forever were not.... People I thought of as just acquaintances have become such close friends.... Through all this, some friends have continued to stay close.

Somehow, its not following "the pattern". Aren't you supposed to have the best times of your life in college ? Isn't work life supposed to be a drag ?

It's turned out rather different. I have met the most awesome pepple in the last few years. Friends to keep. Friends who are genuine to you. Friends I wanna be genuine to. They are a great bunch. I have never been so close to another set of people.

In all this, have also gone through some of the toughest times of my life. Choices that were tough, but were the right ones to make. Old relationships broken, some which were meant to be but were not... and some fabulous new ones.

The thing that I try hard to ensure is not to let the baggage from old experiences affect my current and future life. Why should it ? It should not ! .... Gotta trust people.

A tree does draw from it's surrounding. Nothing is more true. The influence people around you can have on you and your perspective it just amazing.

Most of the good things from the last few years can be attributed to this awesome awesome place called Bangalore. I dread leaving this city. But the sad truth is that I have another week to go before I move to this good for nothing place called Gurgaon. I dread it seriously. But I also have the hope that somehow there will my small ecosystem there in which I will be happy.

Soon life will change... Marriage et. all.
Am looking fwd to it with a curious anticipation. I have wronged in relationships before. I will wrong again I am sure. But there is no better feeling than growing along with and around another person. Co-dependence has such a charm to it !

I am not one for social networks. But I like blogging. Hoping to do this more often. Till then, here's to life !

Some sanity here, please !

Hyderbad Chronicles

I am still at sea trying to figure out this city.... I think its made me like Bangalore even more. I I lack an outlet in this city.... there are no close friends here.... no dinner buddies....

Work is fine... On an average day I am dealing with issues ranging from supply delays from China to my staff telling me that their pants have become tight :)

The travel continues, and so does the anarchy

There's a list of things I wanna do right now:

- Buy a Labrador pup
- Go on the Inca Trail
- Buy an Apple Air book
