Lazy blogger !!

This blog ,which I proudly call mine , hit a 100 views a week or so ago ! yes ! woohoo ! As a matter of fact I even announced it in my previous post ! I even announced a worldwide party to celebrate my "success" !! Infact ,  I'm still in the hangover of that acheivement ! So much so , that I did not bother posting anything in the last week !  I was , as they say , resting on my laurels :-P


Now , My guest blogger idea just never seems to take off ! Thanks to some lazy co-bloggers and even lazier main blogger ( yep , that's me ) ! Pestering them week after week for the last 2 weeks has had no effect and so ...well and so I guess i'll have to continue doing so till they agree to write !

Truth be told , they have agreed to write . Their problem is that they just can't think of anything to write about . And that's why I decided to help them today !

So co-bloggers listen up ! You can write about anything you want to! Some kid hit you with a balloon ? Blog it ! A stupid crow stole your packet of chips? Blog it ! Osama bin laden was killed? Blog it ! Oh..wait..I already did that one ! My point is that this is not a live debate .. No one will question you for writing something you beleive in ! It's YOUR shout-it-out soapbox ! So stand up and speak !

But the major problem is not that ! You find a topic .. You sit down to type it out..You start and then you think "damn it..I can't think of anything more to write ..I'll save it as a draft and do it tomorrow" ! I'm sure that's happened to most of us ! Certainly happened to me more than just a couple of times !

I am not going to ask you to change that ! Sometimes if you can't finish what you started it just shows you are'nt actually interested in what you are writing ! So chuck that , start over ! Write about something that you really want to tell that world ! Something that you have always wanted to shout out in public but never did !

You can take your time and write what you want because after all this is a blog for crazy , lazy bloggers  !!

P.S : Co bloggers start co-blogging for the love of god ! I announced my plans weeks ago ! People are begining think I lied about the whole thing !!

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…
