Untitled for now

Thursday, October 30, 2008 2
The last month got me travelling a lot. Sometimes with a specific aim and sometimes without any. Frantically trying to catch up with friends as well as my breath, whilst on a mission to cycle 60 kilometers even though my pelvic bone was almost fractured. Or leaving campus almost instantly in pursuit of a quiz 600 kilometers away whichas it turned out  resulted in an ultimate test of endurance. 

All I can say now is that it's been an impulsive month. 

What follows now is a brief session of post-Oasis blues (I'm sure I'm not the only one) which should hopefully get squashed by the sirens of the tests ahead. 

Oh and btw:

If anyone is looking to buy a brand new XBOX 360 Core set, do leave a comment and we shall get in touch.

Weekend plans

A Nobel Prize Quiz organised by the Swedish Embassy at IITD beckons and hence I must try to make myself available for it. 

Anything in the vicinity of Nobel, the person, the prize and the laureates threatens to mould itself into a highly unworkutable trivia oriented ghotu question which might be fired our way. True, that is just me being cynical, but somehow these sort of quizzes do give me the creeps.

That being said, I would love to be proven wrong, as I was during the quiz conducted by IMS where the questions were actually pretty decently framed and had, what we in the quizzing fraternity like to lovingly call, a funda.

Apart from the quiz, there's also the added attraction of Barcamp Delhi, which is now in its fifth edition. It's rather ironic that you might find me mentioning barcamp to people here and there and yet haven't attended one myself. I could make up a list of perfectly justifiable reasons as to why I couldn't  make it to the hazaar barcamps that are held all over the country, but then you would just call me a cameltoe.

Moreover, I shall be representing the Mutiny at BCD5 and covering the event live sporadically. It's going to be a tedious process juggling back and forth between a quiz and an unconference, however I think I'm up for it.

And for those who have heard about Mutiny going Print, I shall be there with the copies so that you can have a look. For those who haven't, perhaps you would wan't to have a look at this.

And now for the closing note.

It is not the same thing if I sign Jean-Paul Sartre or if I sign Jean-Paul Sartre, Nobel Prize winner. A writer must refuse to allow himself to be transformed into an institution, even if it takes place in the most honorable form.

Jealousy

Wednesday, October 01, 2008 0
One of the virtues that we were taught at school is honesty. Why? Because it was the best policy ofcourse. Or so we were forced to believe. Hence it's perfectly justified that the only emotion that surfaced when I saw this tweet is jealousy. And the only word that escaped my mouth: "Dai-um".
