Genius Mozart

Let these words be carved in gold, for this shows what true Geniousity means,

A young man asked Mozart to tell him how to compose. The gentle Wolfgang replied that the questioner was too young to be thinking of such a serious occupation. "But you were much younger when you began," protested the aspirant. "Ah, yes, that is true," Mozart said, with a smile; "but then, you see, I did not ask anybody how to compose."

The secret of the secret ingredient

I just saw a movie called Kung-fu panda, the movie was fun all the way, it was an absolute entertainer, besides I took a valuable lesson from this movie.

"The secret of the secret ingredient is nothing", what a phrase, this is exactly what I was looking for a very long time, my stupid logical brain did not understand this subtle existential logic.

It was well said in the movie that, to make something special, you just have to believe it's special.

Now this is the base of positive thinking, I love this.

I've been thinking long and alone on what's in love and marriage, to my logical eye it did not make sense at all, now it's so simple in both love and marriage the couples believed it to be special, this is the secret ingredient for ever lasting love and long lasting marriages.

I've been exploring this arena for some time now, I really don't know how this happens, all through my life, I have never struggled hard for answers, when I want it, it just comes to me or is this perception created because of my alertness, I do not know.

Anyways positive thinking does not mean that one should not prepare for failure, one should be prepared for failure, forget about the preparation and indulge in their work positively, for these are the kinds of people who have succeeded in the history of humanity.

Plain positive thinkers to my knowledge have lost their teeth when things don't come their way.

Be prepared and Be Positive.

Tesla Roadster


The first electric super car, which will make EV's (Electric Vehicles) from PV's (Punishment Vehicles) to FV's (Fantasy Vehicles)

Have a look................



http://www.teslamotors.com/


It can accelerate from 0 to 60 in 4 secs and gives out a fuel efficiency of 2 cents per mile, wow, truly amazing........

The best part is, it is environmentally friendly and the company claims to setup their recycling systems up before selling their first car, this is FUTURE THINKING.

The bad part is, it cost 109,000 US $'s, that is bling bling in my eyes, but anyways if I have enough, I will never hesitate to buy this baby. It is cute, environment friendly and cheap.

Don't be hasty when you choose your motors, it is good you wait for one more year before you buy a Petrol/Diesel car, EV's have been in testing for the past 15 years or so, one entire manufacturing cycle of CONCEPT --> DESIGN --> GOVT. APPROVAL --> PRODUCTION takes this much time for every VEHICLE you see on the road, wait for some more time and you will see more powerfull EV's being released in the market.

The cars that you see today were probably designed long back (close to 7 years) and would have been in testing all this while.

Flush Door Logic

What the heck?

I read a recent article on Environmental Awareness on World Environment Day.

There was one logic which just got my attention and made me feel amused for a while.

The piece looked like this,

"You have to save water, every drop counts, buy flush doors with both 2 ltr and 5 ltr flushes", you know obviously what each is supposed to do :).

Now this is another way of making the uber rich spend some money as some are seriously concerned about water wastage.

Now what are people supposed to do when they have a flush door with only 5 ltr flushes?

Simple,

When you have done your job on the pot, push your flush knob down, when you feel the water that flowed through is enough pull it back up, the water will stop, you get better control than a seperate 2 ltr and 5 ltr flush.

Imagine the cost of purchasing one new flush system, it is equally harmful to buy new things every now and then, manufacturing of mindless materials is absolutely harmful to the environment, imagine the harmful gases released during the process of manufacturing, imagine the cost of transporting these mindless materials, imagine the pollutants released during transport, what happens to your old flush system? it gets recycled, imagine one more round of recycling and transportation cycle.

The real cause of environmental degradation is primarily caused by people who fail to apply the following logic.

"Keep simple things simple, complex things complex".

This story is so close to a famous quote from one of the ex-CM of Tamil Nadu, Mr. Annadurai, "Do we need a big door for the big dog and a small door for the small dog? I say, let the small dog use the big door too!""

Prayer and Obedience

Where have I last heard these words?

In school and after that I haven't even got anywhere near these, being a staunch atheist, I did not want to pray but atheist's do pray, they do not pray to the Gods but definitely pray for their welfare and welfare of the world. Atheist prayers sound more like wishes.

"I wish I were better and people around me were happy" - A sample Atheist prayer.
I need some obedience to strictly follow expert advice, that's it.

OK, adding this to my list for the self-discipline regime.


PS: Putting these in my blog makes me more responsible so just bear with it.
