A gift from a friend, indeed..

One of my best friends, Raja, had sent me this wonderful inspirational powerpoint a while ago. And it was sitting on my computer for the past two years, before I found a way to convert them to an image to post on this blog.

Ofcourse, it is a bit idealistic. But don't let that romantic visionary in your heart squashed by that rational fellow in your head. Hang loose ;)

Hat tip: To convert a ppt (powerpoint) into an image (jpg) as well as several other formats like PDF etc, use the free, in-browser tool from Neevia called Document Converter eXpress. As well as the excellent picture posting from blogger.

If you blog this, does it mean you are old?

To be honest, I have had that "man" in the neighbourhood. Infact he was the landlord of the housing complex that I spent most of my years on. And he used to yell at us not to play anywhere with the ball. Me and my neighbours use to play cricket as well as running games etc. And also, he use to just stare at us menancingly, and ugh!! How i hated him for spoiling all the fun. And that too, when we were so little and just hanging around. Just blogging this to see as I long, not to be like him !!

Petiness, simply doesn't capture the rage that I feel right now. But, since the disaster of the earthquake that hit the Kashmir [more on wikipedia], politicians are playing the game of not allowing Indian soliders into the politically sensitive borders of the two nations. And it sickens my heart. I know, it is not an easy thing. considering the mutual lack-of-faith and constant finger pointing. But comeon, sometimes, we just don't place the value of life on premium. Background on Kashmir.

And a couple of maps that I collected,
