Vantage point

Tuesday, August 20, 2002

A few minutes back, over a plate of what was intended to be pani puri, a batchmate and I agreed on the following three points-

1. Shahrukh acted better than the two females in Devdas
2. Prem Panicker is easily one of the most talented journalists/writers/columnists around. He also seems to be the most underrated, with people associating him with only cricket writing.
3. In today's world, very few people do things, just for the joy of doing them. Most also find it difficult to believe that someone can indulge in certain activities just to enjoy them. For example, quizzing, only to have fun, rather than "enhancing you GK", or solving crosswords just for the joy in it, rather than "improving your vocabulary", jogging just for the heck of it, rather than "build up your legs".
4. It would be fun to do our Summer's Training in a place like rediff and wondering if we could ask the Placement Committee to approach them.

This is the same dude with whom I had a looooooooong argument about the greatness of Sachin Tendulkar a week ago and almost had an argument about the importance of Independence Day.

Funny how two people just don't seem to agree on some days, and are in complete resonance on other.
