A baby rant

Getting more and more disillusioned by the world. Where the fuck is my passion? Everyday I see a little toddler play near our home. The little guy is so happy. Merrily chasing the very dog who snarl and chase me at night. Playing with the stones stacked by public works. Throwing stones at will. Still too small to inflict any serious damage. Lots of people to carry him around when his little feet get tired. Run around naked without inducing cringe but lots adoration. Sleep at any desirable time. Still cannot understand the shitty world he has born into. So damn beneficial.

I wish I could be him. I wish I could travel back through time to 1986. Stay there forever. As a seeker of knowledge I wish I never knew the things I know. Better still, know nothing at all. Sometimes innocence is in ignorance.


Found this is Friday Five and liked it.

1. If you were to have a scholarship created in your honor, what qualities would you look for in applicants (leadership, service, GPA, etc.)?

GPA is bullshit. People with high GPA can be both muggers and geniuses. There can be people with no real "definitive talent" having a high GPA. Also, some can be flatout arses with no regard for the society. I would never create a scholarship in terms of GPA.

Service is paramount. IQ and EQ both are equally important. Abstract thought counts. Creativity would be a defining factor. Enthusiasm is a must. There will be personal interviews.

2. Who would be eligible to apply for your scholarship (members of a certain major, ethnic group, sexuality, etc.)?

No discrimination except there would be a weightage given to economically disadvantaged. Their need would be greater than that of a well to do kid.

3. Would it be need-based or not? Why?

Need-based is contentious. Whose need? Some may need the money to fund a new project. Some of them may need to further their education. It would be left to the recipient on how to spend the money. Strict monitoring would be present. Also, kids would be given many options which they can take or they could do anything of their own subject to approval.

4. What would you call it?

L.E.A.P -> Libre Education Assistance Prize

Libre as in Freedom. Give the kids a chance to leap for their freedom.

5. If you made applicants write an essay, what would the topic be?

Why should I be the winner? What Am I going to do the prize money? Who is going to benefit? How are they going to benefit?

Title would be their discretion. Just answer Why, What, Who, and How!

Ancient Thrills

Ancient civilization. Dig. Gun. Artifact. Conspiracy. Esoterica. Professor. Prospective authors please note, you will get atleast one buyer for your book if these key words are there on your book cover. It would also help if you get someone to give comments like "Stunning!", "Tour De Force!" etc.

I am such a sucker! My book collection has grown because of a few books I bought specifically due to these keywords.

A small list which could well be incomplete:

The Temple by Mathew Reilly

Cover of "Temple"Cover of Temple

Peru. Inca. Idol. Guns. Pretty decent. Good read on a lonely day.

Seven Ancient Wonders by Mathew Reilly

Decent book. Lots of traps and thrills. Moments like the discovery of the Hanging Gardens are really good.

Six Sacred Stones by Mathew Reilly

Sequel to the above book. Same old stuff. The ending is a cliff hanger though.

The Last Testament by Sam Bourne

Cover of "The Last Testament"Cover of The Last Testament

Palestine. Israel. Biblical artifact. Middle east solution. Peace talks. Okay okay book. Not much of thrills to be frank.

The Rozabal Line by Ashwin Sanghi

This is book which jumps from one era to another in a short notice. This keeps things interesting but makes it hard to relate to the characters. Speaking of characters there are too many! It tackles the Jesus in India theory and very cleverly marries it to other religions. At times it may feel scholastic, but bored you certainly won't be! Highly recommended! The authors blog is here.

Drat! The list is smaller than I thought. Anyways, later days.
