I think everyone is stupid. That's it. Doesn't matter who you are. You are all products of some place or time believing in some more stupid crap. Let me tell you a small sentimental anecdote from my class:
"There are three ways how a kid is taught to open the door. In one case the Mother puts the kid up on her shoulder and teaches it open the door by holding its hands. The kid learns to respect guidance.
In another case, she puts the kid on her shoulder and asks it to open the door by itself and with a few trials it learns to open it. The kid becomes self confident.
In another case, she just ignores the kid who figures out how to open the door by himself. The kid learns discovery"
What you should understand is when "you make a toy" you find out what kind of Mothers are in the country for Profit.

...So Avnish Bajaj got arrested. Whats the big deal ? Does NRN need to have an opinion on anything and everything under the sun ? Grrrr.. Okie, I am probably the man's biggest baiter but it was nice knowing on the bus journey to office today that Andy also feels the same way. Somewhere along the line, I think the media has made a demigod of this "simple man". Infy sure has some really efficient spin doctors. I have digressed. The point I actually wanted to make was that this whole MMS scandal has only reinforced my strong opinion that camera phones are a pain. So I think I shall start to float a petition to ban them. Wotsay publik ? Do I have your support ?
Keeping track of "THE STATISTIC":
Its into double digits now..Yippeeee :-)
Just another crib:

The crossword was loads of fun and I am really glad you helped us get into the finals...But couldn't you have been a little extra kind and also got that godddamnnnnnn cute kid and her team mate also through..Okie, maybe you were busy then but you could have surely made up for that by helping me get through the quiz also..Atleast then there would have been some hope of getting to know her better (she's the Quizmaster who asked those silly Qs I mentioned in that previous post.....wait.. does that have to be Quizmistress? Someone helppppp) Neway the results of the quiz have left me really down - the last team that qualified got 18.5 and we got 18. We really seemed to have missed the bus by that proverbial whisker.. and I blame it all on this goddamn MBA degree. There were atleast 2 questions where we could have got that elusive 0.5 pts.
1. Name the inventors of the microprocessor ? I had this gut feeling that the bugger Moore had to be involved but then did not trust my instinct and relied more on logic. Wanting to be risk averse, filled the answer as "founders of Intel" :-p
2. According to NBA rules, which is the only part of an NBA players attire where he can sport a commercial logo? I thought this was a sitter and wrote sneakers. Then my paranoid partner started getting "vibes" that it was a trick question and forced me to change it to headband. No prizes for guessing the right answer. Why can't we MBA let things remain uncomplicated ? :O
As if all that were not bad enough, did I have to know that she is a Priya N Iyer :-p
C'mon, its the Christmas season and I've been a god boy this year (a la Calvin) - do something for me, you bugger. *sigh*
Socha bhala na kabhi mera
Aisa kya bigaada maine tera :-(
