Opportunity

I read parts from Douglas Adams' books fairly regularly even though I have read most of his books several times over. I frequently come across stuff that I somehow did not pay adequate attention to. Today, I came across this:

Everybody has their moment of great opportunity in life. If you happen to miss the one you care about, then everything else in life becomes eerily easy.

- Douglas Adams (Mostly Harmless)

I think I missed this one because it had an SEP field around it ;-)

Five point someone

Guess you must have heard about Chetan Bhagat's book 'Five Point Someone'. The book is the story of IIT from the insider's perspective. Chetan is IIT Delhi and IIM A passout. The book was launched in Bangalore over the weekend. Do check out a review.

Disclaimer: I don't have any vested interest in the book and I haven't read it myself. However, I have heard rave reviews from friends, so thought of recommending it to you guys, before I go and pick up a copy for myself.

A (New) Beginning

So, I have finally managed to let go of my lethargy and shift bag and baggage to Blogger. I am testing if the team-blog thingie works properly and then I'll invite all the guys listed on the previous site to join the team.
