Back to blogging

After almost a year of break, 
where a lot has happened - a lot has changed, 
I have gained some amount of weight and 
have few new special friend to relate :)

All this and more to follow.

Well but most importantly, what's bringing me back, well we always have :

  1. Boredom
  2. Willingness to share and learn.
  3. Nothing much to do at office.
  4. Surprisingly but true, few fan mails. (Mostly, {infact all} from : here )

The Ant Philosophy

I think everybody should study ants. They have an amazing four-part philosophy, and here is the first part:

ants never quit
That's a good philosophy. If they're headed somewhere and you try to stop them; they'll look for another way. They'll climb over, they'll climb under, they'll climb around. They keep looking for another way. What a neat philosophy, to never quit looking for a way to get where you're supposed to go.

ants think winter all summer

That's an important perspective. You can't be so naive as to think summer will last forever. So ants are gathering in their winter food in the middle of summer.

An ancient story says, "Don't build your house on the sand in the summer." Why do we need that advice? Because it is important to think ahead. In the summer, you've got to think storm. You've got to think rocks as you enjoy the sand and sun.

ants think summer all winter
That is so important. During the winter, ants remind themselves, "This won't last long; we'll soon be out of here." And the first warm day, the ants are out. If it turns cold again, they'll dive back down, but then they come out the first warm day. They can't wait to get out.

And here's the last part of the ant philosophy. How much will an ant gather during the summer to prepare for the winter? All that he possibly can.
What an incredible philosophy, the "all-that-you-possibly-can" philosophy.

Wow, what a great philosophy to have - the ant philosophy.
Never give up, look ahead, stay positive and do all you can.

A beautiful poem : Square root of 3

i fear that i will always be
a lonely number like root 3
a 3 is all that's good and right
why must my 3 keep out of sight
beneath a vicious square root sign
i wish instead i were a 9
for 9 could thwart this evil trick
with just some quick arithmetic
i know i'll never see the sun
as 1.7321
such is my reality
a sad irrationality
when hark! what is this i see
another square root of a 3
has quietly come waltzing by
together now we multiply
to form a number we prefer
rejoicing as an integer
we break free from our mortal bonds
and with a wave of magic wands
our square root signs become unglued
and love for me has been renewed.

~ Kumar

"where's my square root 3??"
