A New Motto

My new motto these days is "Work shall set you free". (Didnt something like Karma Yoga say something like that? )Whatever...Its a Friday and I cant complain..

One day on the street

I saw you

And your smile took my breath away

Though you were not looking at me

The girl on your arm

Bathed in its glow

I knew in that moment that my life would change

Now the longing of years

Had crystallized to take

A beautiful shape

You haunted my dreams

Though to forget I tried

Laughed and mocked

At that look in my eyes

But still they searched

Every hour, every street

Now, many years later

We sit across the table

And I look at you

Your smile, still special

The waitress preens, a delicate flush

You turn to me

And it washes over me

All over again

My life seems to have rushed

Toward this one moment

"So, we'll settle at 500 million?"



Since I am challenged blogwise these days a friend syndicated me some content to be published here. Somehow I like it.

Labor Of Love

There was a popular joke among nerds that goes like this :

Windows: "Where do you want to go today?"
Linux: "Where do you want to go tommorow?"
FreeBSD: "Are you guys coming or what?"

That in essence sums up a partial truth of where different operating systems stood.The gap is closer but the distinction still exists.Anyways my access to the outside world has been say, rather limited, because I dont have my lapyop anymore and I have been trying to make do with an old relic of a machine and hence the installation of FreeBSD and the usual process of building the browser related stuff.
FreeBSD is really a labor of love and I had to labor hard to get it up and running here .( Had to go through a minor period of instanity doing the same thing over again and expecting different results)

Finally here I am with a machine to access this world again.Need to send a couple of important emails, so will be back with normal dispatches soon.

Can Fate be tempted? or not?

Havent been doing much apart from blowing up a grand since the last week started on various things and dining experiences. Cool to know that lunar based Saka Era calendar intersected with the solar based Gregorian calendar this sunday. Oh ! that reminds me to spread the word for all ye readers to go and watch Maine Gandhi Ko Nahi Mara. Really good movie.

Returning to the question the greeks had an interesting concept of the three fates (their weaving is what the french would call fait accompli :)
