Feels real damn good

It's 12.05Am on a sunday morning and it feels real good when you realize that you have finished all the necessary work needed here, and for a change you are reading a book, a habit which meandered off after close to three years spent in trying to get a master's degree from here.
But what can put you into a real foul mood is a reading or rather a skimming of the book "The Monk who sold his Ferrari". I quite fail to understand what all the hype was about. After reading the first two chapters, i could make out that he has done a simple rewording of our Bhagavad Gita and other ancient scriptures !
Probably what made the book significant might be that not many may have had an idea of Gita :-) (I meant the Bhagavad Gita you duffer !!)

On a more unrealted note here is a snippet of a conversation i had with my friend
K: macchi so you are having a great time is it ?
Me: Yes da, real kick-ass time ! Life rocks.
K: Ok have you told your parents that you are really happy now ?
Me: Well, they do know about it. What is so important here ?
K: The signs are not good. You are happy, roaming around town, spending every paise of the money you get without saving anything, and in general having a good time. Means you are not being responsible. Time to get you a "kaal-kattu". (For the un-initiated it means getting married). Your house number is still xxxxx right ? I think i need to talk your parents.
Me: WTF !!? ;-) why are you so jealous ?

Bah ! All that you need to spoil the real high feeling that you were having !

PS: Now that i am finished with my degree, you can see me jogging almost everyday on the Domlur-Koramangala Inner Ring Road at around 6.00Am. You are welcome to give me company ! Time to trim out all the unnecessary stuff accumulated over the last three years !

    not just that.what was said in a single line in Gita "karmanyevaadhi karaste ma paleshu kadachana" this bugger has tried to fart that out for more than 200
    pages. !
    the best part is that the blogosphere is peoclaiming it as a very intresting book. nalla ulagamada idhu !
