Randomness, result of joblessness...

"but why did you come in here then" -- Bharuch
"I Wanned to complain" -- Miki
"but i Have no money" -- Jackass
"yes you do" -- Mak
"hey jude, dont make it bad" --Mr. Bhandari
"acchha GG today at kaka's" into infinity ---][

If that does not make sense then just laugh along.. as the graphic says not everything is done to make sense.. these things which wont make sense will make you laugh. Happiness lies in simple things, most of which wont even make sense.

When was the last time something inspired you? Something made you jump out of your seat and say am gonna do this. Something that gave a hint of what could/should be done.

It happened today. After watching a movie, suddenly things started hinting. This is a sign to do this. or that's a hint to do that. Yesterday heard this, "man is drowning, a boat comes he says no god will save me, another boat comes he says no god will save me. he dies and questions god, why didn't you save me? god says i sent 2 boats you didn't get in." that was a 5 yr old joking in the movie but it made sense like i said, too many things happen at same time hinting to same thing in short time? take the hint. This has been happening all the time but well ignored as usual.

Let's go back in time... First semester in Design. You learnt isometry drawing. you understood what the professor actually wanted you to learn from the course. Start looking things in isometric grid. grid lines following everywhere.. like the transparency level of the actual world is suddenly reduced to 10% and you see the grid that defines the structure of the object. Increasing confidence in yourself. You know you can do something great but don't know what. till you pick up a dead dragonfly on the way to hostel. On the way back you look at it you don't see the dragonfly the way you see it usually. it has no mass, its just a wire frame in isometric grid. You smile. You just been inspired to do something amazing that will be spoken of for days to come and the thing that will save you in your juries to come. Yes i Sketched a dragonfly in isometry. and then human hand too. could have made human face too but then perspective course happened. but all i did was follow a hint given to me and it saved me.

Recently got one concept from someone. the concept which i thought of when i was a kid. It came back to me through someone else as a suggestion. now is it a hint as at this point i can actually put it on paper and make it happen? is it time to do something that can save me? save many other things? must be. I took the hint. will be working on it.

Swine flu is around. i planned many a things for past 2 weeks but nothing happened. I was supposed to meet people but i don't see that happening either. Things are just not working out. are these signs too? but if they are then to what? i shouldn't be doing what i was planning to? you never know..

Inference: Inspiration plays important role in Design. Great inventors have got their inspirations from random things. Ball pen we use was made by a sculptor and the human arm led to design of anglepoise lamp. I read this in a book: Art of Creative Thinking by John Adair. So there are inspirations all around us, we just need to see. oh i saw "August Rush" trailer today that says same thing about music, wait is this a sign too?

swine flu

Being suspected with Swine flu is not the best thing that can happen to you, specially when there is freshers party you wanted to go for on Saturday,also marker rendering class on Sunday and a lecture by majesty on Monday. Then you wonder how did i land up in this mess? i don't even have any fever, what is wrong with people.

It all started on Friday morning, life in design institute. early morning i got up for breakfast and a brilliant welcome by a dish called POHA. i eat with people. person in front of me having a running nose. i think i got my infection then. later i go back and i don't feel too well.. the feeling before fever. i have my med, and i work. i just ask my mom to postpone the appointment with dentist and next thing i know is that am under house arrest with mask on my face. no i haven't done the test yet. swine flu test costs 18,000 bucks. ill be getting it done if i show more/any symptoms of swine flu. but that also means i am under house arrest till Monday for sure. that means i miss all those things i wanned to attend. all those once in a lifetime opportunity. anyway freshers must be going on right now. I am here writing my blog how i missed it. hope i have something better in store. Oh and you think you are the only one to whom shit happens?

its time for change.
change in life change in dimension change in many things.
As lot of things that were are going, people leaving, thoughts are depressing, and yes times are changing.
you are there today, tomorrow you might not,
its not you that went away i pushed us apart.
i lost all my feelings, whatever i had,
dragonflies sometimes and then cuboids, all just fad.
but things kept me moving,
hoberman kept happening, time kept running, and people kept going.
You have become mean they claim,
Yes i am not the same.
I changed but so did you,
its just the changing time, nothing new.
