I think its high time now, that we talk about it.
Its there and will always be. It can be hidden no more. It should come out – and now, is the right time for it.
It encapsulates and represents almost anything or everything, that there can be – but, not more than one at a time.
Sometime its a man. Sometime its not. Sometimes its even naught. Then there are times when its naughty. But all in all its more often than not – harmless.
Its perhaps everywhere
But, in the form that we know about it, one finds it only in english speaking areas of the planet.
Its a part of our daily life.
It doesn really start anything.
It only follows.
But, it stays thereafter.
It brings memories.
It creates associations in our mind. Our mind -what a creation! Only the mind can grasp what it is. The mind can see, can feel, can understand what it is.
But, as a person marches towards senility, it starts overpowering him. It becomes just too much a part of an oldman’s life. All he utters about is it. So much does it increase that other people are just not able to understand what it is. They try, but they can’t really grasp at all what it is. This is because the man grows older, he becomes more and more forgetful. So, he often forgots even the Golden Rule about it: “it doesnt start anything – it follows!”.
But, no matter what people say – its crucially important. Its what makes humans, the way they are – the way they understand, the way they create things, the way they lead their lives towards it, the way they think once & for all and then just keep following it for the rest of their lives.
On the other hand, though, it depicts the very finitude that symbolises humanity. How very often, they can see it, they can feel it- but just cant put words to it.And if you wondering still, what it is. Then, thats it for you – at its very best!

July 7th, 2005 – I entered Samsung India Software Operations Ltd, Millers Road, Bangalore – as I put forth my first step in the corporate world. I looked around. There were many more like me. Faces, with dreams in their eyes and hopes in their heart.
July 7th, 2006 – one year passed by. One year in the corporate world. One year away from IITK. One more year away from home. The year went by, as many other did before – some things clicked, some didn’t. Some new words/phrases were added to the dictionary – deliveries, releases, meetings, stacks, layers, specifications… Another phase of my life started. Many experiences came by – which are now embedded in my stream of consciousness. Experiences that I will remember, cherish in times to come.
July 7th, 2006 – I finally decided to move on – in a kind of trivial way – but, which may not be so trivial, if taken symbolically. For past couple of months, I was facing some issues of publishing posts on my previous blog at blogspot.com. I was somehow waiting for some thing to happen and that thing to start working on its own. Perhaps, the sys adming guys here have blocked that 😦 .
But, Nevermind, now that I am here – “Its ok – its cool – its time to rock n roll” 🙂
