Pensieve leftovers

During the course of revamping the blog, I looked at drafts on the blog. I am going to go ahead and put them in here because it really is an amazing exercise to see what I didn't think was good enough to get there.

In the lonely night in the blinking stardust of a pale blue light

Or broken.

If there's a mystery in the foggy world of destiny
You can have what's left of me where we were born in time.


*OK What in God's name does this awesome sounding track mean?!!*



Yes, a hopelessly cliched topic. But want to just write something as it has been quite sometime. I have only cheaply copy-pasted Dylan's classic as a post in the past 6-7 months i think.

A lot of things



'Looking at it is like looking at the sun!! You don't stare at it!You sense it and you look away!'

Seinfeld immortalized the idea and looking at the sun was never the same again.
I wonder if we can beat Larry and Jerry to it in creativity, without of course the pressure of running a multi-million-dollar show about nothing.

Its so ironical - whats formed by covering can be erased by covering! So, you never know what to wish for - that cover or not. Well,



Ever since the advent of Wikipedia, it's variant and more importantly

Whatever happened to Learning

A post on similar lines was intended for quite some time, but I could never really get myself to putting it down. Before entering NITK for a degree in Electrical Engineering, there was no clear idea as to what I wanted to do and what I needed to do. Like anyone else, most of the learning that happened involved gigantic tomes of pointless reactions and formulae. After all, it was sacrilege to not enrol yourself to a prestigious JEE coaching place. What was all the more disappointingly ironic was the fact that some of the finest ideas of science and mathematics were being introduced during this period, including calculus, linear algebra and quantum theory and the only thing that mattered was how an MCQ could be posed and what could be the best possible way to go about answering it. The most prime of time was lost in such meaningless exercises. So, for me the usual typical story followed - an almost worthless JEE rank and I had to 'compromise' with an EE seat at NITK Surathkal.

The End of the Line.

The last 4 days have not been unlike running from a Jungle of outlandish growth and trying to tread on that little line of sanity just above the murky waters of hopeless phonecalls, SMSes and Facebook shag. Needless to stay, cloudy smoke ,courtesy Deshi and gang had me fall into those very murky waters. Gut-spitting retching later, sweat beads and motionless fans conspired yet again and I tripped. Memories of the first trip came back to haunt me and this time, I just let be. It was like Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds! Next day morning involved massive amounts of damage control as things settled down. My visits to the sixth floor didn't stop with others joining in the trip. Moga, Babbar, Mota, Behera and Rahul Babicz tripped balls too! Trips to the deans office and chilling in that heavenly AC was something I got used to for the next couple of days. The photographs and the starched shirts and ironed pants and polished boots and shaven chins joined in the party as the photographs we
