Perfet et obdura, dolor hic tibi proderit olim - Ovid.
(Be patient and tough, someday this pain will be useful to you)
Kinda sums up what's happening with me but then, isn't this "exactly" what has always happened? ;-) A year ago, I was asked to take up an assignment. I spoke about it with a colleague and summed it up "It will be a great exposure and experience for me". He simply said, "Experience kab tak lega!!". He was spot on, but I went ahead anyway. Now the assignment didn't quite materialize the way I hoped it would...not yet at least...and needless to say, he is the one who is doing far better careerwise than I am. What to do...as pandu says LGO - Life's going on!!!
Thanks for the response on the house name...but the hunt is STILL ON. Please more entries. The first set of names didn't quite get there. My favourites were Golmaal and Smiley but anyway, more suggestions pleeeeeeeease? PLEEEEEASE!!!!!!!!!!
Comic time!!! Strangely, I feel this comic has been posted here before? But I looked through the archives and couldn't find it. So I will post it anyway.

Oops...she did it again
Sania Mirza loses in the first round of the French Open. This time it was to the #10 ranked player in the world. 6-4, 6-2. Let's hope she wins in the doubles because that's where I see her career doing better than singles.
Monica Bellucci as Sonia Gandhi
Monica is a clear C-CUP. I wonder how she will restrain it to look like Sonia's A-CUP. Different thing altogether, that it is criminal to have Monica Bellucci in a Jagmohan Mundhra film and not "exposing" :-) Btw I am already picturing Monica Bellucci clad in a chiffon sari getting wet in the rain doing a Neeta Puri singing "Saawan jo aag lagaye, aag woh kaun bujhaye...Saawan jo aag lagaye use....Sajan ka pyaar bujhaye"...... jhingchak jhing..jhingchak jhing \:d/
Btw..she'll look gorgeous in a sari, just got to darken the colour slightly. And Cannes is going to be SHOCKED when they see Monica with ALL her clothes on when this movie premieres. (I know she was fully clad in Passion of Christ - that's why I didn't bother to watch the film)
SC warns medicos to end strikes.
I am trying to not say anything about reservations but when the Supreme Court does something like this, it shows what kind of wimps they are. Agreed that the SC has done things that deserve a creditable mention but looking at how well it tries to "enforce" its rulings, I can't help but say that it is another institution that is all noise, an empty box which looks like it holds something inside it, but there's nothing.
For instance, it has given the Government 8 weeks to come up with a response to the statistical base of OBC quota. 8 weeks????? 8 days is more like it because if the Government requires 8 weeks to dig up this kind of data, it means that it has no freaking clue what it was doing. My question to the SC is: What was the basis of providing EIGHT WEEKS? and not EIGHT DAYS? The time provided stinks of some kind of tacit understanding between the court and the Government and we would be naive to expect anything else.
Someone tell these bastards that they've got to rein in the politicians instead of issuing warnings to people who will have no choice but to give in because they have families to support and a future to worry about. Patients are affected, yes, but what were these politicians expecting? In one action, they have hit the ones who deserved to study by merit and hurt those who deserve help.
The strength of an institution can be best gauged by how much criticism it can handle. It is quite obvious that courts can't handle criticism. If you speak against their order, they promptly threaten you with "contempt of court". Who do they think they are? Gods?
I hope this agitation continues in one form or another because then we can tell the wimps of the SC "Bandook bhi dikhate ho...aur peeche bhi hat-te ho?" :-) Bastards!!
Update 31/05/06: Students divided over SC order
All I can say is "Don't blink first". Because if you do, your bluff has been called. If the fight against reservation is like fighting a tiger, giving in to the court order is comparable to running away at the sight of a cat's tail. The cause is bigger than any court order.
TCP Says: He stood up like he was going to take on the tiger, but ran away at the sight of a cat's tail.
