Holiday Season !!


It's amazing how time flies when it's vacation time ! I had made big plans for the week . Wake up early , go for a jog , maybe even work out a little ( that might come as a shock to those who have seen, for most people feel I hardly have any muscles to work out ).Moving  on.. I thought of maybe catching a movie or two , going out for dinner and doing all those things that I could not do thanks to all the school work I used to have ! Sadly , my life has been reduced to playing games on the computer or Ipod touch or watching repeats of various serials ( not including "The bold and the beautiful") on Star World ! And before
I know it , the week has come to an end ! I used to look forward to the weekends . A welcome break from the boring , monotonous weekly ritual , that was school . Today , however , that has changed . The weekend is nothing but a boring addition to the already boring week ! Whats more , even my usual serials on star world don't air in the weekend !


Why I have not done all those things I have wanted to do ? Same reason why my Blog still has no guest writers ( grrrr !! ) . LAZINESS !  I should be made hon.President of the Lazy bums association ! The only time I give my Brain and hands some work to do is when I'm here , blogging ! As a matter of fact it's the only time I give my legs some work too ( when I walk from the room where the T.V is to this room where the computer is ) .

The EPL match fixtures for the new season is out by the way ! Chelsea are off to the Brittania stadium to play Stoke city in the opener ! Our first home game is the same fixture as a last year , West Brom !
Transfer news is slowly coming through and there is reason to be happy if you are a Chelsea fan ! Roman Abramovic has opened his purse ( A large on at that ) , once again and potential moves include Luka Modric and Javier Pastore ! This apart from the potential appointment of Guus Hiddink as manager . That is certainly something we won't mind ! After all , Hiddink  led us to FA cup glory and to the champions league semi final in the short time that he was here !


More about all that later ! For now , I shall sign out and keep myself busy by gathering all the transfer rumours and confirmations out there !! So ciao ! Stay safe !!

Are Digital Technologies Making Politics Impossible?

This article was originally written as part of my unfinished submission to the nine dots prize. Maybe next time I'll actually submit something. 


“The internet is the first thing that humanity has built that humanity doesn't understand, the largest experiment in anarchy we've ever had.” -Eric Schmidt, Co-Founder and CEO, Google.com
In the year 1947 when John Bardeen and his team at Bell Labs in Murray Hill, New Jersey were busy inventing the first transistor, Harry S Truman was on the campaign trail with almost every prediction indicating that he would be defeated by Republican Thomas E. Dewey in the elections that would be held the following year. Meanwhile, somewhere in Illinois, Hugh Rodham and Dorothy Howell were celebrating the birth of their first child, a baby girl they named Hillary Diane Rodham and nearly 7000 miles away, 300 million Indians were celebrating their hard-fought independence from over 200 years of British colonial rule.

The invention of the transistor…

My Dear Guru

"Guru Brahma, Guru Vishnu, Guru Devo, Maheshwarah, Guru Saakshaat, Para brahma,Tasmai Shri, Guruveh Namaha, Tasmai Shri, Guruveh Namaha"

This post is meant for a selected few. So most others will find this irrelevant. It's meant for the people who took the trouble to write flattering remarks in my progress reports even though I'd only deserved a knock on the head and a good telling off. It's meant for the people who actually did tell me off when I'd gone too far in childish exuberance. It's meant for those I remember dearly with fond memories and others whose memory still sends a chill down my spine (but I still remember dearly). Gurus, they say, are dispellers of darkness. This post is meant for every guru I have ever had- both inside a classroom and outside it.

When I was still too young to remember names and associate them with faces, I had a group of teachers at TVS Academy in Hosur. My mother, I'm sure, knows all their names but I shamelessly adm…

Diwali: Be a Hero

In India, we celebrate a lot of festivals. We celebrate so many festivals that at times it is difficult to keep count of what we're really celebrating. Different people look at this differently. For school kids, it means plenty of holidays. For their teachers, it means less time to complete the syllabus. For employees, it means a day away from work. For their employers, it means a drop in productivity. But there is one festival that really stands out in a calendar year. For years, I've been told it's the “festival of lights” but that isn't an accurate description of what it is any more. I'm,of course, talking about Diwali. The story is familiar to everyone. (For those who aren't familiar with it, there's a VERY concise version here : The Diwali Story). Diwali is, like almost all other festivals, a time to celebrate. And at least for as long as I can remember, it is also the time when environmentalists everywhere feel like they have the most hopeless j…
