some things are just not worth it

every decision comes at a cost. out of the various choices open to you at any one point in time, your commitment to ONE costs you the potential benefits from other choices. So at what cost are we willing to pay for fame, money, stability, satisfaction?

the social network movie made me angry. i will not venture to comment on the real characters of the portrayed actors involved - it's not my business anyway. but what 'parker' and 'zuckerberg' did to 'saverin', and making that comment about the borrowed $19,000? low blow man...

nobody ought to be treated like that. no matter what they did or did not do. period.

and it made me think how much we can get away with, hiding under the glorified cause of 'living passionately for a dream'. does it have to come with the price tag of relationships & human dignity?

what right does anyone have to elevate himself above others (that 'farm animals' comment still rankles) based on the premise that he is self-made, that every distinguishable accomplishment so far is all to his own credit? can anyone truly say that he can live independently from all other humans?

whether or not anyone has directly contributed to your project, they should be given credit in some way or another for indirect contributions. even adversaries teach you something. we are all made of other people's sacrifices, from the freedom and rights that we own, down to the clothes we wear.

the size of one's heart is dependent on whether he can respect another person, regardless of how much that person can benefit him. it's a tall order but the first step in that direction is simple appreciation of anyone's effort... the ability might be lacking, but the thing about being human and not machines is that intentions and motives, and love (no matter how inadequately expressed) do count for something.

cathartic release. :)

Dear stranger Friend, Had the chance to view through your post today about the relevance of loving and respecting the other. I am a philosophic researcher from India,whose chief motto is to spread the message of LOVE. I believe that it should be understood by mankind as natural law to sustain life,replacing Darwin's law of survival of the fittest.I invite you to view my blogs that handles this theme.Love and regards...

As Sy Rogers said today, there are things we can look back on, our memorial stones, that encourage us and give us strength to move forward. I rmb a time I was so far away and so tired of people in general, cos really it's relationships that really get me down - n when Jean would walk in on me crying or just sitting and not even having the energy to do stuff, she would listen n say 'just cry out to God alright?' and that would be the last thing i wanted to hear. sometimes you know what to do, and you know what the advice will be, but when the emotions are not there, an…

beauty and the beast

Best movie ever!

I admit, I was totally sceptical at what I thought was another attempt to spoil a good thing. But musicals... haven't regretted watching a single one, from Chicago, Burlesque, Les Miserables (though I only found out it was fully a musical midway)! We live and we learn :)

Ok, here's how good it was. I went back to watch it a second time. Hee.

It's definitely one of those movies to watch alone - so you can cry at all the odd moments. I gather from the odd chuckles and silences from my fellow movie-watchers, that we were all touched by the movie in one way or the other. None of us wanted to live till we saw the end of the credits. You have to leave immediately when the lights come on though, so you can go remove any traces of the tear tracks.

Loved Belle for being both feisty and just lovely. Emma Watson, you danced beautifully; I was half-in-love with you myself! And of course Beast and the eye-rolling, bumbling-ness of him.

The best of it all was the famili…
