General Yak Yak

Looks like I am suffering for a case of "Bloggers Block". I am at a total loss of words to blog about and neither is something interesting happening in my life. :( Maybe someone can tag me. Enigma suggested that I have F.R.I.E.N.D.S contest on my blog. Now, that is an awesome idea!!! I happen to know lots and lots of trivia about it. Infact, couple of my friends refer to me as "F.R.I.E.N.D.S Dictionary". :D So, in my upcoming posts you will definitely have some F.R.I.E.N.D.S related contests.

I recently purchased a copy of "The Fountainhead" by Ayn Rand. Its quite a famous book and many of you may have already read it. I had previously read this book about 6 years ago. I did not like it all at that time. Felt it was too philosophical. Although I got the main flow of the story, I was not able to understand many of the deeper and subtle meanings. Maybe this time I will be able to appreciate and understand what Ayn Rand is conveying. She calls it as "Objectivism".

A long holiday is coming up on account of Diwali. Am going to Hubli-Dharwad along with another friend for a couple of days to meet up with some friends. Hoping to have a great time and ofcourse eat some authentic Dharwad pedha. More on the trip in the upcoming posts.

Wish you all a Happy and Safe Diwali!!

Ayn Rand's fundamental premise:
Individual is important. Society cannot be used as an excuse to crush individual. Merit should be rewarded.

Now... does any of this remind you of what happens in india?

I've read Fountainhead too, about 5 years ago. Made me wish I knew Howard Roark in person, I'd totally hit it off with someone like that as a friend :)
Have you read Atlas Shrugged? I have it at home, but haven't read it yet. Will do sometime soon..

Have a great trip and ennnnjoy the vacation!

@apun ka desh: Welcome! The first thing that popped into my mind after reading your comment is the reservation issue in the premier educational institutions.

@enigma: Nopes, I have not yet read Atlas Shrugged. Incase you read it sometime soon, let me know what you felt about it.
And thanks!! I had a great vacation. :)

@vin: Thanks!! I had a great vacation. Will detail in the upcoming posts.
And regarding the prizes for the F.R.I.E.N.D.S contest, it works this way: After the contest is over, I will visit a new restaurant, take some awesome pics of the food served and put it up on my blog. That will be the treat ;) Okay ?
