wise words

Was reading a autobiography of kannada writer "Beechi". Few quotes from his book

* No man can talk of himself and still be wise

* I am not at all interesting biographically. I have never killed anybody. Nothing very unusal happened to me - GB Shaw

* God is not my daily food, but I have him only as medicine when my soul is sick - beechi

* All that is composed must be decomposed

Devil's Advocate

Yesteday had I had to play a mock role as BCC (Banagalore City Corporation) Commissioner in a panel discussion "Bangalore woos or woes" about the infrastructure problems bangalore is facing!. Had to face a volley of questions from fellow panelists, audience ! A very tough job though :-)
Was asking questions to myself that what can an individual do in this regard, few of things which I have started practicing mentioned in previous posts.

* Maintain lane discipline
* Use public transport system as far as possible, agree to the fact that it isnt that great either, but it is getting better in these years though.
* Avoid using autorishwas but for exceptional cases, Hopefully things should smoothen out once authorities come up with a rule that "no autos in bangalore central district"

Planning a trip to coorg during this weekend:-)

The next guy who took ticket asked "oNdu ticket Dell gE kodi" ( a ticket for Dell please) and the next one got the ticket for "GE" :-) .. Boy! was in for really suprise here! wont be suprised to the bus stops in Bangalore IT world named after software companies :-)

good thing is that a good number of bangalorians using rather beginning to use Public Transport system :-)

No excuses!

As I look back last year of my life, defly there was a paradigm shift in my attitude towards life/relationship/love etc. As I look back got new buddies and probably looose em too!.. I may sound emotional but thats the fact. Not so very good year at work either:(- . Ny way Life is all about experiences, and there is never a bad experience. you get mature as u go thru with it!

Sounding bit sober :(- ny couldnt figure out any better way to re-start bloggin!

Odakalu Bimba

been to Girish karnads new play "Odakalu Bimba" last week at Ranga Shankara, play was good as pretty much impressed by the way modern technology was used to convey the message. For those who missed both kannada/english versions, guess they organize for a rerun of the play :-)

well, talking about Ranga Shankara, its he place for theater lovers in Banlgalore built in memory of "Shankar the Boss"
