Most likely, the state of me right now...


Affirmative may be justified
Take from one give to another
The goal is to be unified
Take my hand be my brother
The payment silenced the masses
Sanctified by oppression
Unity took a backseat
Sliding further in regression

One The only way is one
I feel angry I feel helpless
Want to change the world
I feel violent I feel alone
Don't try and change my mind

Society blind by color
Why hold down one to raise another
Discrimination now on both sides
Seeds of hate blossom further
The world is heading for mutiny
When all we want is unity
We may rise and fall, but in the end
We meet our fate together

One The only way is one
I feel angry I feel helpless
Want to change the world
I feel violent I feel alone
Don't try and change my mind


Creed - One

If only I could turn back time...

Going through a phase in my life where things start to really matter, where it is no longer childish ambitions or youthful flings...
when things start making more sense than they are supposed to...when people stall falling into categories at the instant...
It is a strange time...nothing seems to be happening without there being any reason for it...we do not do anything just because we want to...its either because we have to or because someone has to...

I crave for the time when all the complications were not there...when all I was worried about was that it should not
rain when I am playing cricket in the lawn...or even if it does...Mom should not notice me playing in the rain...that was it !!!

But the cricket, the rain and the lawn are all left back...far back...I have moved on...but a part of me is still sitting in the back of the bus...looking at the rear window and wondering why did things have to change...It was better that way...much much better.

Life...goes up...goes down...goes round and round...

It has been quite a while since I've had time to sit and think about my look back...reflect...perspect...introspect...I do not understand sometimes why life can be such a difficult darling...Almost everyone manages to screw it included. It seems to be very strong...yet so hard yet so mellow...puzzles me everytime...

I had been quietly living it on...ignoring any warnings of an impending disaster...putting my head in the sand and pretending not to listen to the noise of what was coming...but it did happen...yet again...Life plays its "You can't win me" card...checkmate...just like that...

I wonder sometimes that it would be easier if you just go with the flow...don't crank up those sails to go where you want to...just let it carry you on...maybe that would be easier...maybe thats it...let it win and u r resistance and woapaah !!!

...And when I’m gone, just carry on don’t mourn,
rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice,
Just know that I’m lookin’ down on you smilin',
And I didn’t feel a thing so baby don’t feel no pain, just smile back...

I seem to have developed a unquenching thirst for technology.
About a year ago, I had nothing except for my cellphone...a humble nokia 3530...and look at me now.

It all started when I wanted to "upgrade" my cell phone. It was December, 2004. After some self-evaluations...I settled for a nokia dream since college.

And then, I found the marvel called "bluetooth". Although I had heard about it, even crammed pages and pages about what it is and how it works, but had never seen it in action. So, I decided, I can't be left ignorant. I went out and bought a USB bluetooth adapter, a USB Dongle, as it is more popularly called, from Bangalore.
This was the early February, 2005. After understanding the marvels of bluetooth and trying almost everything bluetooth-ly possible, I grew beyond it.

About June, was the time when I moved to Switzerland. After getting here, the first thing in my mind was a laptop.
After some homework and all, I finally settled for a Dell Inspiron 6000 Platinum,
the love of my life. I can go on and on about how it has become indispensible for me but that will be another post. It is like "Buy it, hold it, love it."

Moving on, although there was enough storage space to go around, I still needed a flexible , light weight mode of data transfer.
So, again I went on the hunt and returned with a 1 GB Samsung Flash Drive.
Although quite small, this little thing has got me out of some really complex suituations.

As my adventures on the net started growing from a few hours a day to days together, I decided that I needed something extra. I needed a warehouse! So, to this end, and with the help of my trusted buddy, Rups, I went out again. Only this time,
I returned with something big ! A Mevis 200 GB external HDD,
it has all the space that I will need for the near forseeable future.

After all these escapades into the tech jungle, I felt provided, yet not content. There was something missing. Something handy, something useful. a 4 GB Creative Zen Micro.
So there I was, with a Micro in my hand and Creed flowing into my ears, wondering
why did I not do this earlier. It is a must-have gadget for everyone.

So thats the story, the evolution from a gadget-rookie to a pro-gadget-eer. But this is definitely not the end.
More will come as time will tell. And I will be ready then...
