This is the day when my parents got married exactly 40 years ago, and this is the day when my mom left all of us forever. Is this just a coincidence, or is it that my mom and my dad met each other in heaven?
How do you describe turning points in life? Does your life actually take a turn and do you realize it is turning, or you realize after you have made the turn? Looking back, I have thought about 2 turning points in my life- deciding to go ahead with my MSc. and then deciding to come to the US to do my Ph.D. But both the times, I never realized that these were the turning points in my life, cos they both happened either suddenly or gradually for me to actually know it. I am at a similar juncture in my life right now and do realize that I am taking a major decision. But on the inside I really don't feel that it is a major decision. I can feel it that it is 'just' happening and I am going along as life flows. I think of my decision positively, and it has its own shares of negative consequences, but I am really not bothered about it. Sometimes I feel I am in a confused state of mind but I know what I am doing. I always have had this notion of thinking about the worse of consequences, so what ever life churns out it always feels better. My decision is a professional one, and may have consequences on a personal ground. Am I putting all eggs in one basket? Where do you draw the line between professional and personal thinking- when do you base your decisions based on logic and materialistic thinking and when based on your inner voice. Well lets see....one thing is for sure, everthing that happens...happens for the best. The key to diplomacy is keep the conversation going.
Sometimes I feel computers and programming are like human bodies. When ever there is a malfunction in the human body, it has a tendency to repair itself. I use bloggar to help me post on my blog. Bloggar is free and helps organize posts and facilitates embedding of links and pictures. Yeah...I know nowadays there are a lot of fancy templates that are ready made and you don't have to enter into the HTML coding thing to design a template. But I like to do that...anyways not digressing, my bloggar would not post my new posts saying that there was an error in authentication. Though I was logged in to my blog account, it still gave me that error. So I stopped posting, meaning I used to write posts by that date (I only wrote one in all these days :P). So today I just tried to post that old Ralitsa post, and behold...it posted just right. I did not do anything, and the problem rectified by itself. Thus I think my bloggar or my blogspot repaired itself. Heh heh...anyways, will be posting more from now on :)
This should have been posted a long time ago, when North Korea test fired a missile under the pretext of launching a satellite. While browsing today evening I went on to the New York Times website. The headlines read North Korea test fired a missile under the pretext of launching a satellite. I immediately switched on to CNN and it was there in discussion. The news reader Ralitsa Vassileva caught my eye. I had never seen her before on CNN, obviously cos I have never been home when International CNN is broadcast. But what I liked was the articulate way in which she spoke and her expressions while covering the news. Every morning I get to see the horrible Heidi Collins who looks like nothing but a dumb bimbo yelling in the name of covering news. Ralitsa Vassileva was a pleasant change to the art of news coverage! Here is her profile as given on CNN:
