Absolutely random thoughts

Some mine, some that of others...
Read at your own risk, I'm not responsible if you are lost in potpourri of thoughts... And feel free to share yours.
  1. Whenever I see the light at the end of tunnel, I just fear it's someone with a torch bringing me more work
  2. If it's not broken, you probably didn't build it right!
  3. It doesn't matter how bad your performance is, What matters is whether your boss likes you or not!
  4. If faith in ourselves had been more extensively taught and practiced, I am sure a very large portion of the evils and miseries that we have would have vanished
  5. Software people would never drive to the office if building engineers and automotive engineers were as cavalier about buildings and autos as the software "engineer" is about his software. -Henry Baker
  6. Good algorithms should be like bikinis... It should save people a lot of guesswork
  7. I hate deadlines to the CORE! Because it's not the end result that I'm interested in, it's the journey that's more exciting to me! That's where the learning happens
  8. There's no such thing as watching too much movie, nor drinking too much tea and playing too much football!
  9. Just say NO!
  10. There's a HUGE difference between coding & programming
  11. What matters is how you show HOW MUCH work you have done, and not the actual work done
  12. If there are 2 ways to solve a problem, only the third one will work
  13. Cricket sucks, and so does Indian cricket team
  14. Football is my ultimate saviour
  15. Real programmers code in vi
  16. If you want to get some work done, the company network is always down
  17. There's no such thing as a Stupid Question
  18. You will always get called from office when you least want it to happen
  19. I'm very optimistic about my pessimism
  20. You only see what you want to see
  21. Believe your instincts, it's far superior than a conditioned intellect!

Even if I complaint and blame everything day-in day-out, even if everything is going dead wrong, even if every one I interact is a son-of-a-***** or (daughter-of-a-*****), even if hell breaks out, its ME who decided whether I want to be HAPPY or go with the flow and feel so low.

Come-What-May, I decide to live this life 100% despite of all even and odds. And, I decide to come out VICTORIOUS.

Nagm-e-Mauj se ek sada aai hai,
Zindgi Naam hai uthate hue tufanoo ka ....

Come on, take the life in your stride. Just hang-on, things will be fine.

Good Luck,

-Well Wisher

Dear Anonymous Well Wisher, Yes I do agree with every bit you said:
No one can make me happy or miserable without my consent.

But that, of course, requires a VERY VERY high level of maturity. Yet to reach there!
Plus, it's good to speak out shi* LOUD at times, helps you empty the cup so that you can fill it up with good things soon! I haven't lost the hopes yet.

Wish you revealed your identity, or at least left a trace, for I don't know if this response will reach you or not :-(

@Saggy, of course you can relate most of my random thoughts! Situation-wise, we are not miles apart!!!

Dear Atul,
I read ur response. Good to know that you agree with the points. I know, u are a fighter.

I agree that sometimes venting is a good thing and gives some relief. Well, I just feel that , we need to set the examples which help others to look at the positive side of the life. And, not relate to the down side.

You see, you make Saggy relate to those situations :-). Similarly, you have the capacity to make others relate to beautiful things in the life.

This way, we grow in the life, help others grow in the life.

Hazaar Gum saahe, na nikala ek bhi aanshu,
Hum ahale-jarf hai, piite hai chhalkaya naahin karte :-).

Best wishes,

-Well Wisher

Anyway, you do have a knack of quoting good shayaris!!!
