The news is big...the economy is down the drains...

Lehman Brothers have declared bankruptcy...The losses of Merill Lynch were so unbearable that its now sold to Bank Of America...and AIG is now soon to touch liquidation...

So now when these top companies are getting screwed...the big question is...what will happen toy YOU??
If they cant keep their money safe...what will happen to yours in the near future...

Was just talkin to a friend....abt the lehman sell out....look at his response

actually mera ek friend tha.. SIES MBA.. Lehman mein tha...
until last saturday at least...
we spoke at length about how there's a complete lack of activity @ wall street
and emerging markets kaise boom ho rahe hain
~Prasad~: okk...
too bad the fellow is jobless now :P

Ofcourse...before that...the bigger question for to-be-MBAs like me is....blodddy....where is the money goin to come from in the first place?????

The job market is going down like a rocket shot in the wrong direction...! To top this...people around havent even relaised what is goin to hit them in the days to come...how can they be sooo complacent abt things???
Strange....very strange....either too smart....or too unaware of whats happening around!

Sometimes people can be so caught up with themselves that they consider that whatever they do is justified and is right....just because of the stupid "this is how i am" attitude...
I just hope that by the time things hit them...its not too late!!

There are some moments in you life that make you feel that Life is really good...the freshness of goodness just blows you away sometimes....

Small things like you know for example....in the morning office rush hours...some people taking time out to put off all the lights and fans in the train...after the compartment has gone empty...makes you feel that there still is "concern" left in this world...somewhere the positivity is still there...

A smile in the corridor everyday...just makes your day...sometimes...such small things also do matter...when you take them away...there is no meaning left...

Have been giving this movie called "STAND BY ME (1986)" to all my friends...to an extent that im actually forcing them to watch it...!!
Its an amazing tale of two friends...a must watch for any person who values friendship....

Gordie: Fuck writing, I don't want to be a writer. It's stupid, it's a stupid waste of time. 
Chris: That's your dad talking. 
Gordie: Bullshit. 
Chris: Bull true. 
Chris: I know how your dad feels about you. He doesn't give a shit about you! Denny was the one he cared about and don't try to tell me different. Your just a kid, Gordie. 
Gordie: Oh, gee, thanks, Dad! 
Chris: Wish the hell I was your dad. You wouldn't be goin' around talkin' about takin' these stupid shop courses if I was. It's like God gave you something man, all those stories you can make up. And He said, "this is what we got for ya kid, try not to lose it." Kids lose everything unless there's someone there to look out for them. And if your parents are too fucked up to do it, then maybe I should! 

Teddy: This is my age! I'm in the prime of my youth and I'll only be young once. 
Chris: Yeah, but you're gonna be stupid for the rest of your life. 


The Writer: [voiceover] It happens sometimes. Friends come in and out of our lives like busboys in a restaurant. 
The Writer: [typing on computer] I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?


The Writer: It was weird to me how, then, Teddy could care so much about his father, who practically tried to kill him, and I couldn't give a shit about my old man and he hadn't laid a hand on me since I was three!

There are a certain people in your life...whose friendship for you doesnt change over time...
You feel the same warmth of their love every time you meet them...and i love that essence of true friendship!

Have had some really fun days in the past week...Living the life i want to live...grasping that every second i can stay away from what frustrates me and breathing...yess....BREATHING...!!

I realized that their are a very few people in your life...they just stick by you if they really want to...they value you and respect you...and that feeling which you feel when you know people want you to be with them is amazing...!

Somewhere....when you are there....experiencing the moment...you just let go...
Just relax...

I cant believe that I have actually become a part of a story about how you should NOT form a friendship...and people take an example of what should be avoided to sustain their friendships...!
Fcuk it!
Take a good look at your fake lives before that people!!

Btw...since i am talking abt friendship...ROCK ON is a must watch!!
Its actually the first movie i have watched TWICE in the multiplex...

I was telling a friend the other day, I actually like some people in college...i am desperate if you may call it....to meet them everyday...atleast say hi...and i genuinely feel that way about them...and its not because they are really close friends or anythin...its something else...
Cant really put a definition to it...
But its there...and its nice...

I look up the sky and wish...
"Let that feeling be..."

How much ever i hate going to college....atleast i have these people to look out for!

The Moment

The moment passes by,
It always does..
And yet,
You see it go.

Feel the moment?
Or, capture it? Or maybe both?
And yet,
You do none.

Shock, is that what it is?
You are suppose, dear,
To shock the world.
And yet.

Don't miss it, please,
If it comes back.
It will,
For YOU.

Found this writing today...Its like an anthem for hackers the world over...
But i am puttin it down for a completely different reason...

The Hacker Manifesto

+++The Mentor+++
Written January 8, 1986

Mine is a world that begins with school... I'm smarter than most of the other kids, this crap they teach us bores me...
Damn underachiever. They're all alike.

I'm in junior high or high school. I've listened to teachers explain for the fifteenth time how to reduce a fraction. I understand it. "No, Ms. Smith, I didn't show my work. I did it in my head..."

Damn kid. Probably copied it. They're all alike.

I made a discovery today. I found a computer. Wait a second, this is cool. It does what I want it to. If it makes a mistake, it's because I screwed it up. Not because it doesn't like me... Or feels threatened by me.. Or thinks I'm a smart ass.. Or doesn't like teaching and shouldn't be here...

Damn kid. All he does is play games. They're all alike.

And then it happened... a door opened to a world... rushing through the phone line like heroin through an addict's veins, an electronic pulse is sent out, a refuge from the day-to-day incompetencies is sought... a board is found. "This is it... this is where I belong..." I know everyone here... even if I've never met them, never talked to them, may never hear from them again... I know you all...
Damn kid. Tying up the phone line again. They're all alike...

You bet your ass we're all alike... we've been spoon-fed baby food at school when we hungered for steak... the bits of meat that you did let slip through were pre-chewed and tasteless. We've been dominated by sadists, or ignored by the apathetic. The few that had something to teach found us willing pupils, but those few are like drops of water in the desert.

This is our world now... the world of the electron and the switch, the beauty of the baud. We make use of a service already existing without paying for what could be dirt-cheap if it wasn't run by profiteering gluttons, and you call us criminals. We explore... and you call us criminals. We seek after knowledge... and you call us criminals. We exist without skin color, without nationality, without religious bias... and you call us criminals. You build atomic bombs, you wage wars, you murder, cheat, and lie to us and try to make us believe it's for our own good, yet we're the criminals.

Yes, I am a criminal. My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive me for.
