Mystery of the Misery

                              Mystery of the Misery

                                Babbage Differential Engine

Let Grief striketh upon thee….

If there was no grief, there would not be happiness either.
Happiness and Grief are not absolute –
They are absolutely Relative.

If there was no grief on this planet,
Mahatma Gandhi would have remained MK Gandhi..
Abhimanyu would have remained just another archer..
Socrates would have never become a philosopher..
The Du pont’s would have remained in France..
Mother Teresa would have been a charming daughter, wife, mother and grandmother..
Dada would have remained retired Sourav Ganguly..(This must have been the work of a hacker – mind hacker?)

Years of Struggle, Years of Pain,
All to see his efforts end in vain..
Because his ‘Analytical Engine’,
Was born too Early..
Early,by a century..

We made his Analytical Engine in to a Computer,
After much toil, After much Struggle..
If Charles Babbage was born today,
Imagine what he could do to our computer..
Because his Struggle,
Was much greater than our struggle..

Let grief striketh upon thee….

Wish not for its abstinence,
But the will to fight its sustenance.

Because there is no mystery,
Without misery.

Water – The Elixir of Life

December 6, 2007



Water

The Elixir of Life

You are always beautiful

Whichever form you take….

Droplets in Rain,

Sea in Ocean,

Snow in a Snowfall,

Ice in a Glacier

They say,

Beauty lies in the eyes of its beholder….

To any beholder,

You are

Ever captivating, intoxicating and addictive….

Addictive….

How can we live without you

You are the elixir of our lives

Because life revolves around water

You are too humble, you wouldnt accept it

But you are so addictive….

So is alcohol, so is tobacco

Whats the difference?

Who is Innocent ?

December 3, 2007

Who is Innocent ?

War in Afghanistan….
So many innocent civilian casualities….

War in Iraq….
So many innocent civilian casualities….

War in Kargil….
So many innocent civilian casualities….

Are bhayia,

Who is innocent?

The soldier, who is constantly at risk of his life,
Who has left all his loved ones and may not see them again,
Who is fighting, not for himself but for the nation….

OR

The civilian, who updates himself about the number of lives lost by watching TV,
Comfortabily blogging from his home expressing deep concern,
Who intends to donate paltry amounts everytime there is a war….

Who is innocent?
