Paradigm Shift

The four day symposium finished. The IRSI-2005 ( )!
Well it was very very differnt experiance of my life..

All the conferences attended earlier have been sales meets, distributor meets!
Everyone is talking rhetoric, people with their masquerades, swanky looks, latest cell phones, neat sleek laptops and everything that seems to represent power and big money!

And here I was in a place swarmed by Scientists, Phd's from DRDO's LABs, IRSO, senior Phd's from Spain, Colarado State Univ, and EU and the everywhere. Senior people who have worked with our prez.Abdul Kalam....

Everyone looked very different. Too simple. Shabby. Nonchalant about surrounding. Presenting very high level papers on various new technoligies, that have been working on since so loong.

And I was grappling with my fundaz trying my level best not to drift to dozing off..

At one point , I felt I should persue my higher edu, do an MS, a Ph.D, Present a novel paper myself!

The four day symposium ended with a very interesting cultural dance performance, which was, though meant for the foriegn delegates to expose them to our culture, was quite a learning experiance myself.

Will be back Mumbai by evening and back to wrk...:'-(

What do you say peeps.. good idea to go in for PhD.. a paradigm shift in my life..

Flags, boundaries, armies, Idiocracy

I am not sure if you have heard of the Movie Idiocracy 
But watching the Political news around me makes me wonder so many times... on how the equation of smart and dumb people in the world stands?

I am not a social scientist; but when I see people around me creating more and more divisions and boundaries, I feel we are heading the wrong way.

For example, I have had very deviant views for words like Patriotism. The love of your country is what is usually means. But people interpret it as protection of their country from other countries!

The only species to kill (not one) but many of its own.

What about recognizing ourselves as one species inhabiting one planet.

Do you think we can ever live as one? Why do we need someone above us? Why do we need rulers, presidents, prime ministers, etc.

We cannot live on our own without wanting to kill each other for resources?

What will bring our infighting down? Lower population, Aliens, appearance of GOD ?

It is Sad

Where am i

It has already been quite a while that i have been trying to answer a key question... Who am i and what am i doing here.   So i decided to change the approach. Let me try to answer... Where am I?   So i am in a driverless metro heading to what can be called east. Towards a metro station close to my apartment.   Digging deeper. East is word to describe a direction on an otherwise sphere (circular) earth. The Earth is a large sphere shaped mass consisting of many elements. It gives company to many such small and big masses which revolve around  a really one at the centre..called sun. This really large one is extremely hot and gives energy to most of these sphere shaped ones ... Revolving around it. So relative to where this sun is visible from where u are.. East or west is decided. Towards it is east. Explaining this i have gained clarity that this large locomotive which i called metro is going in the opposite direction referred as west. Lets focus away from definations of relative posi…
