Hello, Another three month hiatus, though having said that, atleast its only half of what it was the last time. Am I busy, or is it general burnout. I mean, I have been putting up stuff on the blog for more than a couple of years now, but my input has been tailing off of […]

Random stuff

June 25, 2011

Hello world, Its been more than six months since I posted anything here. And yet it feels like yesterday. Time passes in a relative way,though 0ne second at a time. I wonder if anyones done any work on the rate of time passage. It sets itself up in a recursive loop since time generally is […]

We live in interesting times.

October 19, 2010

This happened a few days ago. As I sat in the coffee room munching on my lunch and browsing on my i phone ( did I ever mention that I love it … and I fully retract the disparaging posts that I had written about it a year or so ago), a colleague was peeking […]

Rome again, and some random musings

October 4, 2010

When we had finished our walking tour of ancient Rome, we decided to grab a bite to eat at Travestere. ¬†Its the trans tiberian part of Rome. I mentioned it in my previous post on the Eternal City. Its the Rome where the Romans Roam. Haha. The tourist to native ratio is much smaller than […]

Tiredness

September 3, 2010

The seat of fatigue lies not in the neuro muscular junction by in the brain. So said one of the few good physiology instructors I had as a fresh faced medical student constantly disappointed by the sad quality of teaching that I got at my medical school/college. And he proved it. He got one of […]

The Eternal City

August 18, 2010

I can see why twitter is such a big hit. It requires no prolonged thought and planning to cobble together a coherent few hundred words conveying an idea others might be interested in. Its all about instantaneous gratification. You might wonder why I am starting a post on the eternal city with a gripe on […]

No pleasure like the relief of pain

July 3, 2010

Hunger is the new satiety, penury is the new wealth and debt is the new asset. So proclaimed my facebook status a few days ago. The thought came to my mind as I was lying on the couch staring at the sea thru the window.It is duality that makes life worth living. Let me put […]

More trivia …

June 22, 2010

Heh, as a follow-on to the last post,  found this during one of my random surfing sessions. This seems to be the hot topic online these days.

Addictions

June 13, 2010

I am afraid I have become addicted to trivial information. Random web surfing on sites that cater to infotainment. I read around six online newspapers regulary. And I am not even saying daily. Its more like hourly. If not more. The i-phone and wifi access in the hospital I work in has fuelled the ever […]

The value of Money and the economics of Value.

May 23, 2010

Why do we have inflation/deflation. How is it that a unit of currency today is worth less a year from now. What has changed. How can something meant to be a unit of value, be devalued itself. Its like every second, the duration of the second itself is decreasing. At a rate determined by whether […]
