If we consider a snake, over time, it gets a new skin, and its old skin dies. Its not easy for the snake to get rid of the old skin. It has to wriggle through rocks and narrow spaces and put in considerable effort to get rid of the old skin. Its quite uncomfortable – […]

obituary of Sanjay

Saturday, June 4th, 2011

Bangalore — Sanjay Mysoremutt, 36, died Thursday, June 2, 2011 at Bangalore. He leaves among others, his almost 4 year old jovial son, his affectionate wife, his caring mother and sister, family around the globe and many wonderful friends. He was, arguably not to an unreasonable extent, a gluttonous, slothful, inconsiderate, indifferent, professionally complacent, hypocritical, […]

one year closer to my death

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

[As I have mentioned earlier, when I speak about my dying I don’t believe in any superstition that it may cause me to die earlier than my actual ticket is dated. For all I know, I may actually happen to die day after tomorrow or next week, but for sure it wont be because of […]

deadly ideas on why this life matters

Saturday, November 10th, 2007

We must note that there is a thin but important line between having apathy and indifference feeling ‘we have to die anyway’, and understanding death and knowing about the real value for life.

words and their limitations

Sunday, December 31st, 2006

Sometimes misunderstandings happen because words don’t always convey what we want to convey. “For thought is a bird of space, that in a cage of words many indeed unfold its wings but cannot fly.” ~ Kahlil Gibran Sometimes when a person misunderstands something, instead of seeking clarification, he may (had he interpreted it offensively) actually […]

bringing the house down

Sunday, May 7th, 2006

I was saying earlier that I’ve lived in just one single house all my life. At that time I’d not really imagined that that wouldn’t be for very long! We are finally executing the long long pending plan of my mother’s generation in rebuilding the house from scratch, to replace it with something new, modern […]

Emperor Ashoka | ಅಶೋಕ ಮಹಾರಾಜ

Came across various versions of the same story. As I couldn’t find a succinct version, I consolidated yet another one myself from different sources on the web to match the one I’d heard originally long ago (can’t remember where).

[flashback] considering a shortcut

Friday, September 2nd, 2005

flashback = old memory. In this case, something that happened over twelve years ago (when I was a teenager)… and nothing to do with me today! If you read this article, please read it completely – do not jump to any conclusions and abandon it midway!! 🙂 —— Sitting in stillness may at times bring […]

I am a software engineer

This is how he’d introduced himself to Kichu and everyone else in the room in 1998 – and to anyone and everyone he’d ever met since he’d started working a year ago. And Kichu had remarked “No you are not.
