Figuring out life in 5 minutes on a Thursday morning

bimal.rajasekhar@gmail.com has by and large replaced beamoflight11@gmail.com. I realised that when I unconsciously entered that as my email id on flipboard.

This is not  something that people would usually consider a turning point in one's life. But when one obsesses, like I do, over the smallest things and lets the larger things slide by, these are the markers in one's life. Strangely enough, I feel like a load has been shifted from my shoulders. There is now no need to fight the good fight against capitalism. I can give into it. Perhaps, life will be comfortably satisfactory now.

Today is a rainy, air-conditioned day. The kind of day for hot tea and banana fritters, pleasant thoughts and the company of friends.

It is a good day to stop questioning and to start living.

L'esprit d'escalier- II

Nemesis advocate : Blah blah blah..

Me : Sorry, I didn't get you?

Nemesis advocate : Looks like my learned friend is hard of hearing.

Me in Court : {good-natured laugh}

Me on staircase outside Court : Or, more probably, my learned friend is hard of talking.

Wit, Y U no come to me in Court??

L'esprit d'escalier.

Senior Counsel : Blah blah blah...

Me : M'Lord, my learned friend is wrong when he says...

Senior Counsel : I am not your learned friend...

Me in court : ...

Me on staircase outside court-room: Very well then, m'Lord. My non-learned friend is wrong when he says...

Wit, Y U no come to me in Court??


Undue Pessimism

.. is realizing that you are now the same age as the characters in F.R.I.E.N.D.S. and that their lives and concerns are now yours. 

Undying Optimism

.. is when you always have a condom in your wallet, and keep changing it, as and when expiry dates and uneventful days whoosh by.

We all know a guy who misses the point completely

A: Why don't you finish your work and then chill? You won't have anything to worry about while chilling then!

B: You don't understand. Every piece of work left unfinished while I'm off chilling is another symbolic protest I launch against capitalism. They may have my body, but they'll never have my soul. Never!

A: Dude, you're wearing Adidas shoes, Levi's jeans, an Adidas t-shirt and Oakley glasses.

B: ..... I'm not sure I'm comfortable with your scrutinizing my clothes so closely, man.
