While we were listening to Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam’s speech…

…there were couple of idiots around me who were desperately trying to note the ‘important points’ from the speech. Now you may say that its alright to note down the points. But you know what? I observed notepads of about 4-5 of them and all they had were 3-4 useless words. I seriously doubt those (key)words would help them remember the speech or even the points Dr. Kalam was trying to make. Dr. Kalam was trying to explain the importance of a questioning mind and power of imagination with examples. Had they paid attention to him, they’d have gathered lot of great information. But it looked to me that they were taught to trust their notepads more than their own memory. There’s no point in expecting anything from idiots who don’t apply their mind to anything. The responsibility of turning the Vision 2020 dream into reality now lies on you and me....

Sometimes, trust me, I sit & wonder why are people so insane. Every time strangers impress me with their insanity and make a lasting impression on me. Is it that the gross level of people’s thinking ability has gone considerably down? What could be the reason for it? Is it the non-iodine salt they eat or over exposure to ‘engineering’.

E4G: Hi, How are you? K: I’m fine. Thanks. E4G: Do you have any tips? K: Didn’t get you, sorry. Tips on what? E4G: Leave it. I want to buy a round magnate. K: I see. Good. E4G: Can you suggest me some shops in Chennai? K: How do you expect me to know the names of shops in Chennai that sell round magnates? E4G: byeeeeeeeeeeeee...

Hey YOU! I am talking to – Y O U! Don’t look anywhere. I am talking to YOU! You are reading superblog. That means, you aren’t doing anything productive. Obviously, you are not concerned and aware of India’s Vision 2020 except that it’s something associated with Dr. Kalam. The person next to you is browsing Orkut.
