A few things transpired...

...over the last few days. However, since I'm keeping my blog under heavy sedatives for the current year (!), I won't run into the details here.

  • I met with some disappointment owing to which I had to take an important decision.
  • I came across a law-enforcement agent who was misusing his office to dupe others. The fellow, however, couldn't get the better of me even after thoroughly checking my mobile for 'adult' content. His disappointment was clearly evident as he returned my phone and I felt like choking him to death. But what really shocked me was the way he initially grabbed my sleeve and pulled me over as I walked completely oblivious of his malicious intent. I would have probably written a complaint about the incident had I expected disciplinary action. But it's an open secret how the higher echelons of power work hand in glove with the criminal minnows. It's a well evolved and parallel machinery used as a secondary source of income forged by those who have enough state-entrusted power bestowed upon them to bully hapless people. Corruption runs deep in our society and a lack of transparency and accountability is responsible for fueling it all.
  • I finally got my 5.7G of music copied to my 9 CD's. Western Classical & Jazz are way above the crappy noise that often pass for music. If only people could realize what they're missing.
  • Yahoo! Mail Plus works like a dream. It's just perfect. I guess this is how I'll use mail for the rest of my life. No more handling multiple accounts over multiple domains. There are only three factors where Gmail beats Yahoo Mail: Grouping related mails together, Tags and Search.

I'm surprised! You actually want to listen to my collection?!

Transferring 5.7G is not easy. I could suggest the torrents that you may use to download the music.

And you won't be charged a dime for the downloads per se!

This is what Bertrand Russell said about religion...

Religion is based, I think, primarily and mainly upon fear. It is partly the terror of the unknown and partly, as I have said, the wish to feel that you have a kind of elder brother who will stand by you in all your troubles and disputes. ... A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men.

The year that was

I'm wearing a rather striking shirt, one that makes me feel like a clown fooling around in a graveyard. Roving eyes latch on to me and make me too conscious of myself. Checkered in red, grey, black and maroon, I've excused myself into donning it and looking silly for two reasons. It's Friday and…more importantly, the last working day of the year. Tailored half-a-year back, I never had the courage to wear it, not until today. It's that time of the year when it's time to reflect on the events that transpired. Last year ended on the worst possible note. Dad had expired and I was numb with shock. The repercussions rippled halfway thought this year. Things were so abysmal initially that I had lost the will to live. Acrid in everything I did, I was immensely angered by time phlegmatically flowing through its cadence. It was as if Dad meant nothing to anybody. What right did people have to live the way they always had when Dad was no more? Why was much of the world still
