Chaos Theory in action?

Posted by Sathyamurthy www.sathyamurthy.com on October 23, 2008

No, I am not talking about Kamal Hasan's magnum opus "Dasavatharam".  Its all about Nano that Mamta said "Nah, No" and Modi said "Wah, Aah".
Anand in Sanand while sadness in Singur

Nano has moved out of Singur and with it, the hopes of landowners in and around Singur. As per reports, real estate prices have come crashing down in this town of the state of West Bengal on account of pullout of the project. A handful of brokers that had cornered a huge chunk of land and had rode the wave of prosperity over the past of couple of years are now finding it hard to sell the same even at vastly reduced prices. This has however proved to be a blessing in disguise for people owning land near Sanand in Gujarat, the new home of the project. Despite lying on the outskirts of the city of Ahmedabad, where real estate has taken a real beating, some brokers are hopeful that the relocation of the plant would give a much-needed boost to the real estate scenario even in the heart of the city. This is indeed a testimony to how one big thing could lead to another. Some politicians in West Bengal however chose to go the other way.

With the net, everyone of us is immortal

Posted by Sathyamurthy www.sathyamurthy.com on October 18, 2008

Its a holiday and I was just browsing around the net. I wanted to see what results I get by googling my son’s name.

I was pleasantly surprised to find these two poems written by him almost eight years back. It brought a smile in my place. This also establishes the fact that like the scriptures we find on stone the messages that we post on the web get some kind of immortality.

Reptiles – by S. Niranjan, V – D, Vidya Mandir, Mylapore, Chennai.

With sticky tongue,
They wander around the sun,
Let us see them and
have some fun.

Let us see the reptiles,
How they change their color,
They look so scary,
But not hairy!

They can change their color to the color of everything
They can change their color to including the color of tin
With poisonous tongue,
Look out everyone!
See the reptiles and have some fun.

New Little Baby Brother – by S. Niranjan, V – D, Vidya Mandir, Mylapore, Chennai.

Cuddly and cute,
Sleeping in my mother’s lap,
Lay a pleasant surprise,
For my father a new son,
and me
A little baby brother.

Sweet tiny baby,
For me and my father,
When he woke up,
With his small little eyes,
Like cute little moles.

I gave my sweet brother,
A loving gentle tap,
And a small woolen cap,
As he cuddled in my mother’s lap.

We have to just google with the name of our relatives and friends, live or dead, to get what is engraved about them or by them on the net. Interesting.

Wanna trade places with your wife?

Posted by Sathyamurthy www.sathyamurthy.com on October 18, 2008

A man was sick and tired of going to work every day while  his wife stayed at home. 

He wanted her to see what he went through so he prayed, "Dear  Lord, I go to work every day and put in eight hours while my wife merely  stays at home.  I want her to know what I go through,so please create a trade in our  bodies." 

God, in His infinite wisdom,granted the man's wish. 

The next morning, sure enough, the man awoke as a woman. 

He arose, cooked breakfast for his mate, awakened the kids, set out their school clothes, fed them breakfast, packed their lunches, drove them to school, came home and picked up the dry cleaning, took it to the cleaners and stopped at the bank to draw out money to pay the power bill and telephone bill, drove to the power company and the phone company and paid the bills, went grocery shopping, came home and put away the groceries. He cleaned the cat's litter box and bathed the dog. 

Then it was already 1:00 p.m. and he hurried to make the  beds, do the laundry, vacuum, dust, and sweep and mop the  kitchen floor. He ran to the school to pick up the kids and got into an  argument with them on the way home. He set out cookies and  milk and got the kids organized to do their homework,then set up  the ironing board and watched TV while he did the ironing.

At 4:30 PM he began peeling potatoes and washed greens for salads, breaded the chops and snapped fresh beans for supper.

After supper, he cleaned the kitchen, ran the dishwasher, folded laundry, bathed the kids, and put them to bed. At 9:00 PM he was exhausted and though his chores weren't finished,he went to bed where he was expected to make love, which he managed to get through without complaint.

The next morning, he awoke and immediately knelt by the bed  and said, Lord, I don't know what I was thinking. I was so wrong to  envy my wife's being able to stay home all day.  Please, O Lord please, let us trade back."

The Lord, in his infinite wisdom, replied, "My son, I feel you have learned your lesson, and I will be happy to change things back to the way they were. You'll have to wait 9 months, though.  You got pregnant last night!!!"
