some scribbles to fill my blog

-> "when you really want something to happen, the whole universe conspires so that your wish comes true"

That was a line from the alchemist…guess what I figured out that it happens..as such I am a hard-core optimist, I walk through life’s lanes looking for signs that re-inforce my optimism, else I make up my own signs..my optimism never wavers…

So how did I figure out that if I want something badly enough, the universe would conspire with me and let me have it?

Well, through a piece of rasgulla….crazy right???Yesterday I got this sudden urge to eat rasgulla…I want rasgulla, I kept repeating for a major portion of the day..no , I didn’t buy it and have…am too lazy for that,I just went home and forgot all about rasgulla…..

Today, I went for an early lunch.Surprise!Surprise! Todays’ menu had rasgulla…..wow! Why did it have to be rasgulla today..not some other sweet????
So , yet another sign for me….i always believed that I can have anything I want, as long as I want it badly enough…one piece of rasgulla re-inforced it!!!!!

->The person who interviewed me and probably decided to hire me is leaving my organization…I felt a sudden sadness…I carry heaps of gratitude, I don’t easily forget…..i was fat as a kid..now that i think back, i think ,may be it was just my elephantine memory!!!!

Its hard for me to pick a favorite...but I love the conversation between the boy and the sun. Try reading 'Celestine Prophecy' as well...It starts of with the 'coincidences' which happens in life every now and then(Like the rasagulla miracle). Bit of "masala" in some parts but the message conveyed overall is good.

Dont do the mistake of buying Alchemist from Landmark. It is around Rs.90 or 190(I cannot really recall) whereas you can get 3 of PC's book at Moore market for the same rate. Try getting 'Veronika decides to die' and 'The devil and miss prymm' along with the Alchemist . Heard that the latest book, 'Zahir', is good as well.

Well thats enough advice for one day. Happy reading.

When I put the book down, I felt that The Alchemist was just another crappy attempt at writing. Could not associate to anything said in that book. It was the beginning of a series of pathetic reads .... Monk who sold his Ferarri was the next !!!!
