A post

I sit at my computer, not quite sure what I want to write about. There are a lot of thoughts that have gone through my head, but none have stayed and transformed itself into a blog post. Nonetheless, let me try.

Even memes aren't around to rescue me now. So what do I write about? Seems like I have written about everything that I am concerned about. And all or most of my thinking energy has been diverted to work thinking. Oh, work is going great by the way. New ideas, new plans, more exciting stuff. I am waiting to see them transform into something that will bear fruit.

Actually, I have taken a break from thinking. You know, one of those seasons where you just take a break because thinking a lot ends up in confusion and sometimes even in pain? Yeah. So I am taking a break from thinking anything too serious. I am keeping my reading to just fiction and lighter reading than the stuff that makes my brain whirr at 10000 rpm. It is almost like I didn't let very many thoughts stay in my head long enough that it took root and became an idea (which would have then been transformed into a blog post). And thus, I have been diverting my thinking energy and causing it to stay mostly on work related ideas.

Hopefully, I will get to thinking other things sometime. I am trying to read The World is Flat. I wouldn't say that it is the best read that I have had in my life. I find it a little too dry and little too one-sided. I am pushing myself to read that though. I have decided to reward myself with The Argumentative Indian if I finish reading the World is Flat.

Besides that I am reading a Tamil fiction (Yavana Rani by Sandilyan). The story is split in two volumes. I will hopefully finish it by the end of this week or so. I may be quoting something from that book too. It is interesting, the gems of thoughts that you find these books.

TWIF is pretty good eye opener if you live in the west, and think that India is out to absorb you and take over the world. My sumarry is that India and China are just returning to precolony condition of world economy. USA will not die, just as europe did not die when USA came a power.

It has to be a very different book with your world view.

Ryan - I'm not for a moment deceived by the apparent coming to power business... At the end of the day, if you look at it, we are still being colonized.

The world may be getting flat, but the center of it still seems to be the West...

Bungi said...

Mahatma - He he... Thank you for the title... Brain is one sort of a mixer. Yeah.

Sandy - Sandy, i already have a couple of ideas now!!! And thanks for the meme which was a good filler.

CU - Hmmm... It just so happens that i tend to be in the middle of two or three books at any given point of time. Some i take ages to finish and some i finish quickly.
And somehow, fiction and real life anecdotes have not been my strength. But i do have a couple of new ideas that came to me last night. :-)
