A perfect day!

Tea in a bookshop with books that I'd never buy with a classmate I didn't recognise but whose company I enjoyed; lunch with a pretty girl and a very good friend trying out a new cuisine and getting to learn about a culture and saying, "Oh well, they were more fun in Bapsi Sidwha's The Crow Eaters, though the chocolate mousse is orgasmic"; portrait session with a true artist and the mad Bollywood couple; dinner from spicy Chettinad.

This isn't a post. I just wanted to record a day of bliss and much learning. And I simply don't care about writing it well or creatively.

I learnt about living a rich life in spite of one's disability. Have hands; will ride. Have feet; will walk. Have a thought; will share.

Today is always better than yesterday. At least we don't have to go to school.

When you are down, give yourself over to P. G. Wodehouse.

Dhansak is over-rated but chocolate is never.

Women are so much better off if they are not in relationships.

A good picture is worth over a thousand words.

Mediocrity has a great fan following but only a few elitists follow true genius. It's a heartening thought.

There is always something more to do, an undiscovered passion waiting...

In conclusion, you can hate them but you also need them to stay sane - people.

James Watson, who first unraveled the mystery of DNA, thought of human gene pool in Africa as hurting the chances of the rest of human race.

A genius a lifetime is good to have, I suppose. Helps us a jump ahead a few years. But God they are not. Human they definitely are. Good friends they seldom make.

I have 6 best friends in my world. 5 from school and 1 from college. 4 of the them live far away and have not seen for years. One of them is an ex whom I will never see. 1 is in Bangalore. I have not needed more.

MG, no, no, I doubt I have any geniuses as friends. But I do know a score of hugely talented people. We are all leaky cisterns any way. Sometimes I just love people, and most times I am happy not to know any. :)
