One Advice : Dont watch Avatar

Posted by Thejesh GN On December - 23 - 2009

You have been warned, don’t watch it. Because once you watch it, the movies wont remain movies for you. Every other movie will look very very ordinary.

Once the movie started, I was like wow, then fcuk.. then amazing.. then… then.. then silence for next two hours. It was 2 hours:45 minutes of magic tour of Pandora, then I returned back to mother earth. But I am still dreaming I guess. Its almost 2:30 AM, let me go back to my dream. Again don’t watch it. If you still want to, then go to the nearest Imax 3D. Good Night Ladies and Gentleman. Sweet Dreams.

Love and Sex

Posted by Thejesh GN On December - 18 - 2009

Yesterday I was at friend’s place for dinner. As usual we were talking about many things from twitter, to taking breaks, to brand images to MJ. Then suddenly I had to give this quote from one of the TED speeches, but then both of them are mostly non techies. So I had to take a step back. showed them these two videos.
The first one is from TED/India by Sunitha Krishnan who works for an NGO Prajwala which battles against sexual slavery and human trafficking.

they were very silent after watching this. Well even I was when I watched it first time.
Sunitha Krishnan has dedicated her life to rescuing women and children from sex slavery, a multimilion-dollar global market. In this courageous talk, she tells three powerful stories, as well as her own, and calls for a more humane approach to helping these young victims rebuild their lives.
Then I made them to watch this

Anthropologist Helen Fisher studies gender differences and the evolution of human emotions. She’s best known as an expert on romantic love. This particular talk is about why do we crave love so much, even to the point that we would die for it? To learn more about our very real, very physical need for romantic love, Helen Fisher and her research team took MRIs of people in love — and people who had just been dumped.

I guess they liked what they saw. Love and Sex are very complex. Its difficult to find just one emotion/words to define them. If pictures can speak thousand words then these two videos can speak million. I don’t have anything to write, just go watch them.

Why is it difficult to change?

Posted by Thejesh GN On December - 8 - 2009

Sometimes myself and my friends have great discussions on email. It dies out after few days. There has been occasions when I have tried unsuccessfully to dig out old mails. This time I made it a blog post so we share and get to keep it. Some parts have been removed to keep privacy.

From: Thejesh G. N.
Because you compare worst case of change to best case of status quo. Unfair right?

Remembering 26/11

Posted by Thejesh GN On November - 26 - 2009

Wanted to write this post from yesterday night. But didnt know what to write.  26/11 was just one of those incidents which got world (media) attention but I see one such happening every day.  I go through various  emotions every time I read about such violence.

This post is not only for remembering 26/11 heroes but all those great souls which have fought against the violence from the beginning. I salute you all.

To all others

ಓಂ ಅಸತೋಮ ಸದ್ಗಮಯ,
ತಮಸೋಮಾ ಜ್ಯೋತಿರ್ಗಮಯ,
ಮೃತ್ಯೋರ್ಮಾ ಅಮೃತಂಗಮಯ
ಓಂ ಶಾಂತಿ, ಶಾಂತಿ ಶಾಂತಿಃ

om asathoma sadgamaya
tamasoma jyothirgamaya
mruthyorma amrutangamaya
om shanthi shanthi shanthi hi

Rough translation:
From false to truth
From darkness to light
From death to immortality
O kindly light..let there be peace

Cycling around Hesaraghatta Lake

Posted by Thejesh GN On November - 25 - 2009

Woke up 4am on a sunday morning to go for cycling, with the thought it better be good, I have lost hours of sleep for this. After driving for an hour we reached Hesaraghatta which I had known only for two reasons a. Nrithyagram b. my father’s training there. Once we reached the place which marked the begining of our off-road cycling, I was happy. It was green, muddy and beautiful.

We didnt actually have any particular track in mind. We rode as we liked and ended up at Hesaraghatta Lake. We rode on the lake bund until we reached the end. Read the rest of this entry »
