We shouldn’t be afraid of trying to solve a problem knowing that it is going to create another problem.
That is the whole point of discovery. If there is nothing new to answer, nothing new to find, nothing new to say, what else is left for us to do. It is like sitting in a concealed room, inhaling the same air we just breathed out, with maybe a tea spoon of stinky fart as an additional ingredient over and over again. Repetition kills the creative mind.
A problem left by itself will only rot. Its total a waste a mind. But when you rather nurture it, feed it with answers, it would/might develop into something new, something big. We might find something totally unexpected. Polio cure.
Accidents don’t just happen, they are created.
There is no knowledge in the old. Knowledge exists in the finding the unknown. It lies right beneath the mistakes. Now do not misunderstand. I am not saying old is to be forgotten. Old i.e. past i.e. history, is to be considered more as a guideline and not as a rule. Old is where the wisdom is.
Without knowing or understanding the mistakes of history, there is no history to be made.
I read this below quote from someone named Ralph Caplan,
Invent a better mousetrap, and your create the problem of mouse disposal. Incite the world to beat a path to your door, and you create the problems of traffic control, of quality control, of distribution control, of inventory control, of self control.

Instant love is a rare thing isn’t it?
When it comes to music, from the blistering amount of new tunes/albums we come across today, we miss heaps of good ones. And even when we find one, they get over written very soon. Its a sad fact.
But there are some that we really get attached to. A tune with a heavy, emotional content that just swoops your feelings in the first listen. This is one of that for me. This is my new found wonder.

My vacation time is approaching very quick.
As much I want a vacation, I just don’t know where to go. That’s more frustration than the average installation in your Windows getting stuck at 99%. The even more fucked up part is, none of my friends are free at that particular time. And here is the kicker, the coming week is Deepavali, everyone is getting a weeks holiday. Me – working.
Anyhooo, looking at the brighter side, I still have a vacation. And I have to decide where I ought to be going. I came across this video which is quiet inspiring. And b e a utifully edited with a delightful background music.
I have always loved the concept of travelling. But I have never had the strength or the money or the time for it. Ok, I know that’s just a lame excuse. What am I to do, it just the way I have been.
And I am going to change that. Every year, from this point on I shall go to a place where I have never gone. This is not a resolution, it is not a promise. It is simply a plan/idea that I am going to keep up….. try to keep up.

I stumbled upon this beautiful short film on a random site. It depicts how pathetic and ignorant we have become. For us, nature is to be found only in our desktop wallpapers and as screensaver. It’s a nice little film that make us think wild.
