Random Musings

While there isnt much going on in my life thats worth broadcasting at the moment, I felt that I should be disciplined enough to write something on my blog regularly... It feels very odd not to be writing about some "issues", coz well... coz it's so out of nature for me...But maybe thats the result of gathering a few white hairs over time.

This week, we organized a SuDoku Challenge within iFlex. I am a novice in Sudoku, and through this, I came to understand that it is a real fun game... part of the reason also being I came across a fun site. I plan to start solving some puzzles myself.

Also managed to catch up with Chintu after a long time. Felt good talking to an old pal after so long. Good luck and God Speed Chintz.

On a more serious note, lets say a silent prayer for Mr.Pramod Mahajan. Hope he is able to stay well and recover from this life-threatening situation.

An Ode To The Human Spirit

If you could have the arms of Hercules,
Legs as swift as the wind,
If you could lift a shoulder high above the rim,
Have the kick of a dolphin,
The reflexes of a cat,
If you could have all these, you would have the body, you would have the tools,
But you would not have greatness, until you understand that the strongest muscle, is the Heart.
To me, that is the soul of the Olympic Games.
- Andrea Bocelli for Olympics 2004.

These words of Andrea Bocelli, the Italian singer, song-writer and producer were seen and heard by me a long time back, when I saw the clip on CNN. The ad is by Saatchi and Saatchi and you can view it by clicking one of the links I have given below.(Links work on Internet Explorer only as per my testing.)

To me, this summarizes everything there is about life. It gives me hope, inspiration, joy and above all, a sense of confidence that the human spirit is supreme. It tells me that no matter where we come from, its the spirit inside a person that will determine her/his destiny. I want to write more, but sometimes its best to leave things unsaid...
