Dreams... Dreams... Dreams...

Im listening to Konjam Nilavu from Thiruda Thiruda over my new wireless headphone. The sound quality is amazing and right now, I can feel the adrenaline pumping through my veins. Why? Its because I see some things that I have bought out of my earnings and they make me smile.

I see a beautiful and simple fan that is giving me cool air, the wireless headphone that is giving me beautiful music to listen to. And all of a sudden, I am feeling very empowered. Very empowered that today, I am the master of my destiny. Tonight, I feel at the top of my game. Maybe its because of the materialistic things that surround me. But, in essence, I am at the top of my game in the IT industry at my level (atleast in my mind.) I work hard, give full commitment and enjoy challenging work at most times. I have no illusions that I am the best, just that I have the opportunity to try my level best.

This stint in Tokyo has empowered me, financially, emotionally and most of all, has taught me to dream. And in the middle of those dreams, I found one very unlikely goal of life. Will want to invest the next few years to study the feasibility of this system in India and the technical details involved. Just let me know if you would be interested in browsing the web over your mobile phones and having access to a variety of life-improving services like mobile banking, movie bookings, getting financial advice over the net on your mobiles in real time, making travel arrangements for a holiday to Phuket while in the middle of a tour in Calcutta amongst others :)

Whenever I think, the game of football is always somewhere there on my mind. I just simply love the game more than life. Cricket comes a joint first too :)

Right now, I feel an optimism about my life similar to scoring the winning goal in World Cup final :) Its a joy best described by the following anecdote:

Sports Commentator 1: Hey X, see him go crazy after scoring that goal. I wonder what it is that prompts such wild celebrations?
Sports Commentator 2 (who's been a footballer): (Just smiles)

Ab toh aadat si hai mujhe...
Aise jeene mein

(Just smiles)

Nice post... but I wasn't able to get the hidden hint from it... :)

Even I believe on the Quote that "Unless one dreams, how can he succeed..."

O yea!! *i dunno if it was a joke/just an example*..but the whole improving the web surfing experience on your mobiles..IM IN! I just realized, i spend a good..one to one and a half hours, surfing the web on my fone...its too damn useful.

Now if only, i had a 3 inch 16million colour LCD with a full QWERTY and a jog dial...ummmmm :p

And yea, the moment you have "buying" power..its an overpowering feeling of independence and..i dunno..sheer joy! :D

@anshul: the hidden hint was the extent of happiness on scoring a goal at any level of football... u gotta have been there to know it... theres no other way...

@voodooboy: its not just any web surfing. its actually bringing the net to your mobile phone at a fraction of the cost that you pay for your current gprs... and you have the freedom of choosing whether to subscribe to that rock street journal site that you love to stream music from (example only :) or to follow up with your gre counsellor over his portal in real time while you are in the middle of a very important thumb wrestling match...

its basically about a new internet in india... one over existing infrastructure and at an affordable rate to the subscriber... only over mobile...
