i may be the last of the entrants in the world of bloggers, and in MBA they tell us, such people are known as laggards. however i will still try to carve out a niche for myself. through this blog i will try to 'key-down' my day to day experiences and the pschology behind those experiences. most of the times it happens that we live experiences but avoid pondering over it. if its a bad experience we try to engrave it ASAP, and if it is a good one, we just enjoy the outcomes. very few people sit back and think about the factors that contribute to such an experience.

the inspiration:

i was conducting a quiz in my college, a general quiz which covered multiple subjects like Sports, Trivia, History, Invention etc.

at a particular point i asked a question to a participating team - "what is considered as the greatest/most useful invention of all times?"
reply came - electricity (passed on to next team)
next reply - computer (same fate - passed on to next team)
next reply - taj mahal (this personally devastated me, coming from a graduation student)

the answer was the WHEEL. but all these replies got me thinking - if these people just thought about for one minute or so they could have realized that Electricity is generated throgh Dynamo (majorly), which involves a turbine (circular motion to say simply).

computers dont generally work without elecricity or charge.

taj mahal (not worth discussing - but laterally if you think, it must have involved movig big boulders from one place to another - best done by wheels)

Conclusion - we dont think of what we are doing, what we are speaking, what we are thinking. we just carry on with our lives, the way it comes and we keep on living. so where is the practice of learning from experience.

this is when i particulary understood the phrase "God is in the details". if one sees the above answers they are majorly biased towards the usage and things that surround us, presently. but few spare a moment in realizing the fact that how much time has gone into the development of such things and how many minds have actually paid attention to the details of whatever that surrounded them.

examples are many - Newton, Archimedes et al. they all drew inspiration from the things/events that were surrounding them. they just pondered over it and invested there time to seek answers, seek explainations.


coming back to present - this is why i have created this blog, to contribute some "Food for Thought" to the readers.

inspiring !! yes i guess for everyone the learning from experience is extremely important .... and as they say "every day is an evolution" its so damn right ...

there just so many things to learn from ... even if you get one thing in a day to learn you should rather believe that your day is complete ...
