The Difference….

I peer through my window. I see a well designed parapet wall that is approximately 2 ft. tall made with red bricks. The grass is still green, at least right outside my window. It is certainly green for the temperature we are having here (80+)..May be the tall trees and the heavy trunks of the trees around the building are ensuring that there is enough shade. Like they are protective and possessive of the grass that are beneath them. Like they feel they can do that because they are the only ones who are responsible. The protective big brothers who are physically stronger than their younger siblings. They always want the best for the younger ones in the family. Or so do they think..!

Talking about thinking (ha..the vagaries of the language), we had an interesting discussion in one of our team meetings, today – “Issue based thinking” was a topic that was thrown at a bunch of sales guys, who have had no consulting experience or any scientific experience for that matter. Needless to say, the meeting was mostly a one way street – as the person who proposed the topic, ended up explaining what the topic meant and that pretty much took care of the time we had..

The time difference between Phelps and his fellow swimmer Cavic, who wore a silver medal instead of a gold, which he thought he had it, till about the last 2 seconds, before the giant arms of Phelps touched the timing pad sooner than his did, was 1/100th of a second. That was absolutely incredible and absolutely out of the world. A feat that can only be matched by another remarkable athlete who may not be born yet.

As random thoughts are born in my head, my blogging mind starts itching, but my other minds hold me from giving in, because I certainly have other tasks of higher priority during the course of the day – like driving to work. Of late, I get the best topics to blog about when I am on the road. Unfortunately, by the time I make it to work, they are lost.

Lost indeed the average American voter still is and that is why the 800 year old Republican Presidential nominee still has hopes of pulling a surprise. It is totally bizarre to notice how simple an average American voter’s mind is – It cannot process complicated pieces of information and analyze them together in the context, before making a judgment. And when it comes to military, it is fascinatingly annoying to see how easily that mind can get carried away.
An ex-military man is always better to be a President of the country than anyone else? Go Figure….

Where are on earth can you find this belief so strongly etched to the voters minds other than certain dictatorial countries…? To me, it is not democratic at all – It is not democratic to throw seeds of fear in the minds of vulnerable voters, about your opponent’s capabilities, in order to prove your credentials to be the President.

It is plain exploitative and definitely dictatorial.


Besides fantasizing about being a Peter Gibbons at least for a couple of days at my work, I think I have a long way to go to realize some of the other fantasies. But like any ambitious man out there, I will get there!
