I have just realized that all these days (till around 4 posts ago) the main spark of my incessant blogging used to be triggers from what I'd see around me - pieces of news, terrorists (of course, they used to hog headlines all the time!),Mumbai (ooooooh I miss it so much), Mumbai traffic (I used to rant about it, but still never missed a chance of driving off in potholed Mumbai). And if nothing else remains, we always had $30,000 worth commodes (John Thain, people - Merill Lynch).
And then I got to thinking - why is it that these days I have absolutely nothing to speak about, except discussing people!!!! Yeah I know - great minds discuss issues and petty minds discuss people. Ok Ok. Don't rub that in! But hopelessly, that adage hit me hard on the face just today!!!! Wish I had realized this a couple of days ago, and perhaps a certain degree of unnecessary, unpleasantness could have been avoided! But the fact remains that beginning from my take on the Southies - where someone almost issued a fatwa on me... (Surprised I am still alive, given that person's clout!!!), I kinda realized a little late, that the reason why I was experimenting with freedom of speech on my rather modest teeny tiny no-one-reads-it-except-me blog, was because of a gross lack of outward leaning perspective! Also within the span of 2 days, I have had two totally disjointed people coming up to me and saying that I generally speak too much (event A), and that the quiet types (event A') are generally very sensible (event B). And over the past one week, I have done a little bit of probability to understand the funda of event A and event A' and the relation to event B and B'. I won't give the conclusion of my hypothesis (called Sindhu's complement hypothesis)that tied the statements directed towards me with the funda of A and A', because I don't really want to.... well, maarofy my own leg with a Kurhaadi! (sheesh, I need to start writing better).
Sounds real profound right? Perhaps not. But how does it matter? It sounds real exotic, and I am sure someday someone will dedicate a wiki page to 'Sindhu's Perspective theory and Complement Hypothesis'. Did I mention that I can write on wikipedia as well? Never mind! That said, I did a lot of introspection (internal research, with myself as my target segment). I found out, as part of my grand study, that I haven't read a newspaper in one week. I haven't seen television over the past week. I don't know the latest gyaan on what Obama is doing or for that matter what anyone is doing. I don't even know the newest movie releasing this week! Man! that is a loss of perspective or what??????
I was just discussing 'Sindhu's Perspective theory and Complement Hypothesis' with a friend this evening, and he said, "Sindhu, get a life. Stop your incessant nonsensical thinking and divert that crooked mind elsewhere. Or else please go sleep. You will be doing humanity a huge favor." So, I decided to make a note to myself. Loads of class reading do not translate into a tight schedule that does not allow you to do stuff you usually did. Everyone around me, manages to find time, to quiz, sing, play the guitar, read, talk, fall in love, fall out of love, blah blah blah. If I cannot find time to do what I like, then who will? And that's when I decided - people centric blog posts shall end starting today. The only person I shall talk about is, well nobody! It's back to thoughts about the greater good of humanity...
At least now, after my declaration, I hope someone other than myself would come over and read my blog!
